A Talk with Govt Shepherd*
HIS HEALTH RESTORED AND HIS BUSINESS PROSPECTS
BRIGHT?SURPRISED AND PLEASED AT THE RECEP
TION HE IS TO MEET WITH.
Ex-Gov. Shepherd returned from New York on
the Congressional express last evening. He was
accompalned by Mr. Scott, Mr. Martin, Mr. Shep
herd's interpreter and secretary, and the gover
nor's brother-in-law, Jno. M. Young. His oldest
son was also of the party, having boarded the
train at Trenton, near which place he Is attending
school. Mrs. Shepherd and a number of personal
friends met Mr. shepherd at the station. After
hurried but cordial greetings the travelers were
driven direct to Bleak House, beyond Brlghtwood.
When a Star reporter called on Gov. Shepherd
early this morning he had Just completed break
fast, and surrounded by his family was enjoying
the comforts of his country home.
SURPRISED AND PLEASED.
When told of the preparations which were
br ing made for his reception this evening Mr.
Shepherd expressed surprise at their magni
tude. "it was entirely unexpected by me," he
said, "and the demonstration Is all the more wel
come on that account. It Is not only pleasing to
me personally, but Is peculiarly gratifying to my
family." He showed a good deal of interest in the
proposed bicycle parade, and anticipated witness
ing a brilliant and novel spectacle. "Yes," lie
continued, "1 have returned to iny old home in re
newed health and Strength, with the exception of
a severe cold, which I have had for several weeks.
1 had a pretty hard siege of it after my accident,
but perhaps the human system is like the atmos
phere, all the purer and healthier for a good hard
thunder storm, and a general shaking uu. At any
rate, I am myself again, and am
READY TO RESUME WORK."
As he said this he ran his hand through his hair.
It has grown again to a pretty full crop, and al
most entirely concealed the ugly scar which ex
tends clear across his scalp, a perpetual reminder
of the terrible accident in the aqueduct at Batop
llas. In answer to Inquiries of the reporter, Mr.
Shepherd said: "My visit here has been extremely
successful. In the flrst place I have regained my
health, as I stated, which was the Immediate
cause of my return from Mexico, and in the second
place iny business trip to New York bids fair to be
rewarded with entire success."
"It has been charged that you stopped in New
York to drum up more money to carry on falling
mining operations In Mexico," suggested the re
porter.
"Yes, of course," said Mr. Shepherd. "I went to
New York to see about
CONSOLI DATING ALL THE MINES
In which I am Interested In Mexico under one
company. The consolidation has been entered
upon, and I have every reason to believe that
when the vote is taken next Wednesday there will
not be a dissenting stockholder. For rour years I
have b?en urged by stockholders to secure this
consolidation, but I was unwilling to do so untilwe
had received the grant from the Mexican govern
ment, wnich would make us secure In our rights
and privileges. My accident hastened my return
somewhat, but before that occurred the Mexican
government had given us a charter, almost na
tional In character. Nothing like It has ever been
conceded to foreigners or natives. It recognizes
our rights to the mineral of all that part of the
country, and makes us safe from molestation of
any kind. It Is a litting recognition of our opera
tions 16 developing the mineral resources ol the
country. Heretofore there have been two obstacles
to perfect mining at Batopllas?the lack of suf
ficient power to work the mills and the large cost
or transportation. We are so far from the woods
that, with all the mules we could use, only
enough wood could be brought to last a few
montiis In the year, while the transportation of
i the ore was so difficult that, although there was
! always plenty or ore, the largest mill could only
be run to one-third of Its capacity.
DIFFICULTIES OVERCOME.
"Now, I am happy to say, both of these difficul
ties have been obviated, the former by the large
aqueduct, several miles long, which will furnish
Sleety of water-power from the river, and the
by4h?vqnuci, two miles long, through the
mountain, which will enable us to work all
mines through the one opening, bringing the ore
from all right out to the hacienda. By this consol
idation our running expenses will be greatly
lessened. Heretofore It has been necessary to
hive a thoroughly equipped outfit for working
each separate mine, but now it will require but
one for all, and there Is every prospect that from
this time lorward we will be able to work to the
best advantage by means of the extensive Im
provements that have been made."
"When will you return to Mexico?" asked The
Star man.
"I expect that everything requiring my presence
nere will have been set tled In about six weeks,
and then I will go to Batopllas. I shan't do as I
have done for the past seven years, however, for it
"Is my desire and intention to spend a portion of
each year at my old home, Washington."
THE PltOCESSIOX TO-IVIGHT.
Everything Heady for the Grand Jlar
fchal lo Ciive the Signal.
Grand Marshal Dickson said this afternoon that
the machinery was all ready to move now; every
detail was perfected and the success of the demon
stration depended only on Providence and the
weather. He believed the fireworks display would
be the most effective ever seen In this city. The
procession, he said, would move at 8 o'clock sharp
from the rendezvous. This hour was fixed as it
would be more convenient for worklngmen who
were to take part, and it was also desired by the
fireworks men to reserve their display till after
that hour. The route was only two miles and a
halt long. Mr. Dickson thought the procession
would reach the revlewlng-stand by 9 o'clock and
be dismissed before 10.

Boundary. The commissioners ask for 093
teachers at an average salary of $670. This will
make an Increase of 46 over the present force of
teachers.
$800,000 FOR STREET IMPROVEMENTS.
CoL Ludlow said to-day In reference to the ap
propriation for street improvements: "The Com
missioners ask for $800,000 for street Improve
ments. We have prepared a general schedule of
streets which the commissioners regard as neces
sary to improve, irrespective of any question of
per centage, and because the considerations which
Influenced our decision are not of a local charac
ter." lie said that about $295,000 will be asked
for this work, leaving $505,000 for the schedule of
sections.
SOME OF THE STREETS IT IS PROPOSED TO IMPROVE.
Among the streets which are Included In the
general schedule of streets to be Improved are: C
street soutn; 7th street northwest, from Q street
to the Boundary; llth street southeast; 35th
street northwest, from Q street to the
Tenleytown road; Harrison street, Anaeostla;
and Brightwood avenue. The Commissioners,
Col. Luulow said, ask also for an appropriation
ror lading a 20-foot pavement, in the renter of
Maryland avenue northeast and for laylhg *
smooth pavement on 4% street southwest, from
Pennsylvania avenue to the ArsenaL
The grading and regulating of Pennsylvania
avenue east at a cost of $20,000 is Included in this
schedule. The citizens' Committee of One Hun
dred In the schedule they recently submitted to
the Commissioners asked for $50,000 for this pur
pose.
The Commissioners also estimate for the re
moval of the last pieces of wood pavement In the
city, of which there are nine cases, all located in
the southeast section, as rollows:
C street, from 4th to 6th streets, on the north
and south sides; North Carolina aveuue, rrom 4th
to 6tli streets; 5tli street, crossing the Square; 4th
street, Pennsylvania avenue, to (J street; 1) street,
irom 7th to 9th street, on the south side of the
square; D street, from Pennsylvania avenue io
8tn street, on the north side of the square;
South Carolina avenue, from 7tli street to l'enn
sylvanla avenue, and 7th street, rrom D street to
South Carolina avenue. Col. Ludlow said that
these streets had been lost upon the schedule of
streets having wooden pavements.
HOW THE DISTRIBUTION WAS MADE.
The distribution of the estimate of $505,000 for
the section's schedule was made on the mean per
centage of taxable valuation, population,
area, and square yards of streets to be
improved, which, said CoL Ludlow^ is supposed to
represent the -needs" of the different sections.
The percentage allotted to each section Is, there
fore, as lollows:
Georgetown 06.6
Northwest section 51.4
Southwest " 12.2
Southeast " 15.7
Northeast " 14.1
The percentage of streets to be improved is:
Georgetown 5.0
Northwest section 29.3
southwest section 13.5
Southeast section 26.3
Northeast section 25.9
Even on the basis of "needs," represented by
the square yards of streets to be
Improved, the northwest section should
get a larger percentage of the appropriation
made tor the sections. But the fact Is the
northwest will get from the total es
timates fo streets less than Congress
gave that section last year, or In the
neighborhood of 33 or 35 per cent. CoL Ludlow
said that the commissioners are unable to ask for
more than $90,000 for the maintenance of concrete
pavements.
THE CHINESE CONCESSION.
Count .llllkiewic/ Denies tbat it bas
Been Withdrawn.
In regard to the London dispatch published In
New York stating that the Chinese viceroy had
withdrawn from the arrangement with Count
Mltklewlcz, and that the American parties to the
concession had been notified to that effect by
telegraph, Count Mltklewlcz to-day telegraphed
a3 follows from New York to a friend In this city:
"The telegram published In the New York Even
ing Sun purporting to be from London and stating
that the viceroy had withdrawn concessions is
without foundation. The concessions have been
granted, and neither party has any desire or have
hey the power to withdraw. This pretended dis
patch Is the last effort of the English. Neither the
syndicate nor the legation has any knowledge of
such dispatch."
The Chinese minister is in New York, and it was
said that he was with Count Mltklewlcz in that
city last night.
At the State Department no information regard
ing the subject has been received. A Star re
porter who made inquiry was informed that the
concession was a business transaction, not involv
ing anything of a diplomatic nature, and the De
partment, therefore, would not be likely to receive
any information about It.
Incident* of tbe President's Journey.
THREW A PANCAKE AT MRS. CLEVELAND.
A St. Louis special to the New York Tribune
says a remarkable incident occurred yesterday at
the fair grounds during the President's visit that
had a sequel this morning In the police court.
While the President's carriage was driving by one
of the booths Mrs. Cleveland was startled and sur
firlsed by the sudden appearance of a hot pancake
n her lap. She had been >ised to receiving bou
quets In that manner, but a hot pancake was
something she was unprepared for. The police
pounced on the cake-maker, and found her to be
Annie Sax, a comely young cook in the booth. To
day in the police court she explained tbat some
thing Impelled her to hit Mrs. Cleveland with the
pancake. A continuance was granted ror a week.
AN OLD FRIEND OF THE PRESIDENT.
The carriage in which the President rode from
the railway station to his hotel in Chicago yester
day morning was drawn by four bay horses and
driven by B. F. Ransom, an old Buffalo friend of
the President. He knew the President when the
latter was studying law, thirty years ago. 4,They
come to me," Ransom said, referring to some mem
bers of tbe reception committee, "and ask me if
I'd like to drive tne President's carriage. I says.
'Yes, I'd like to haul him 'n' his wife; I'd be proud
of haulln' 'em?an' I told 'em I wouldn't charge
'em a cent.'" Bo this devoted friend did drive the
President, and a good Job It was. The President
acknowledged it himself, and he shook his friend's
hand upon leaving the carriage.

WHY OULESBY WAS ABSENT.
He Says the President Ignored His In
vitation to Visit Springfield.
CHICAGO, October 6.?A Springfield dispatch
j gives the following explanation of Gov. Oglesby's
absence from Chicago during the President's visit:
! "There was Inquiry about the state capltol to-day
as to the reason why Gov. Oglesby remained away
from Chicago on the occasion of the President's
visit there. He had a pressing Invitation to go.
I It seems, however, that when the Springfield au
thoriums were preparing their invitation to the
President to come here, the mayor and others
I called on the governor and asked him to Join In
the invitation. The governor replied that In his
position he did not think he could with propriety
loin in the citizens' invitation to Springfield any
more than In one to any other city in the staw.
but that he could write the President and would
do so saying that he had learned the municipal
authorities of the State capital were sending him
an invitation to come here, and that If he decided
to come, and It was hoped he would, the governor
and all the State officers would unite in the gene
ral endeavor to make his stay here an agreeable
and pleasant one. This was written on behalf of
the State government* and sent entirely separate
from the invitation of the mayor, the council, and
the citizens. The president replied to the mayor's
Invitation, and referred to the action of the coun
cil and the citizens, but neither mentioned the
governor's letter, nor has he replied to It sepa
rately. This explains why the governor has not
personally Joined in the welcome of the President
upon the soil of Illinois.
Brown's Blood is Partly Indian,
and iik thinks he is rightfcl nEIR TO a ?700,000
KSTATB IN THE INDIAN TERRITORY.
CHICAGO, October 6.?A Waco, Tex., special says:
D B Brown, an elderly farmer, who has re^ld<-d
lor several years near Lorena In this county, ap
peared in County Clerk Baker's office yesterday to
affix his signature to and have record made of cer
tain legal documents, which go first to the capital
of the Cherokee Nation, In the Indian Territory,
and theuce to Washington City. These documents
are of great value to Mx. Brown, troic ills s-tunu
point, for he says the papers will establish his claim
as the rightful heir to an Immense tort-no. Ills
story Is romantic. His grandfather on the mater
nal side was a rull-blooued Cherokee Indian and
owner of large possessions In the Indian country.
By intermarriage with white blood and removal to
Texas hti separated the 1-i.Tully. Although this
claimant knew he had Cherokee blood in nis veins,
for many years he has been tracing up his Indian
ancestry, and feels assured that he has the chain
complete without a missing link that will prove
him to be a lineal descendant ot the old Cherokee
above alluded to, whose possessions by the lapse of
time have so increased that the value of tliees
tate Is now estimated at $700,000. The documents
forwarded by Mr. Brown must be approved by the
council at the Cherokee capital and then go for
final action to Washington city, but Mr. Brown
says he will prove his claim and eventually get
possession of the vast property now held and en
joyed by others.

THE fic.ht.
When everything was ready for the'nght Young
refused to begin because the county constable*
had not arrived, and he thought they would lie
offended If the fight atarted before their arrival.
Alter some Utile time three constables arrived,
and at 8:15 o'clock Patsy Morgan eaiied "time."
The principals and seconds entered the ring and
crossed hands. The seconds tle'n took tle-lr jn>-4

which was lohowcd by some heavy body blows
until they cllncned, and then time ?anct>ll^d.
When time was called for the next round Young
entered ancLwas smiling at Monohan as though he
was easy m w hip, and the crowd began to cry,
"Give It to him. Monohan." There waa very Utile
punishment indicted in this round.
The eighlh round was only a repetition of tbe
previous one. Tbe crowd thought the tight was
about to end In a tlzzic, aud they loudly y eiied tor
more slugging. The nine rounds following were
about the same as those which had prec**ded It,
and uo hard blows were struck unui theeighteenth
