A mysterious transaction was wit
nessed by Ernest Ford Tuesd
in the rear of the building, where he
resides, on .Second avenue. He was
preparing to .retire when his attention
was attracted by seeing three men
with a sack .filled with something
into the alley. Two of the men en
tered a vacant place and the other re
mained outside. The two who en
tered the room 'were indulging in a
fist fight, as itihe iblows they struck
each other could be plainly heard by
Mr. Ford. At the expiration of about
five minutes one of the men came rmt
again and picking up the sack with the
man ; who was standing guard they
passed out of the allev. The other
man who was left 'behind in the build
ing passed out at the, front entrance.

was spoken by any of the men and

an argument arose over the price. The
colored man wanted to pay so much
ana the Celestial wanted more. The
purchaser threw a piece of money on
the counter and walked out of the
store with the article. The store
keeper followed him Jabbering loudlv
and gesticulating wildly. He attempt
ed to snatcn tine article rrom the son of
Ham, but that personage resented it
by striking the Mongolian. A pitched
battle followed and it is hard to tell
how it would have ended if several
other Chinamen had not come to the
assistance of their countryman. He
recovered the article and the colored
pugilist hastened from the field of bat
tle. Today is the day when the Republi
