I luff In is about thirty yearseild and seems to hne hallucinations. He was-assistant Janitor at the Colored High School until a few days ago, but was sent away on account of his peculiar actions. Night before last at a revhal meeting at Asbury Church, on thecorner ot Eleventh and K streets northwest, he suddenly jumped up from the scat he bad been occupying, and running up tbealelestopped in front of Mr. Sam 8 hums, a mill who was an entire stranger to him, and stood in an Immovable position for some time, with his right arm outstretched and point ing toward the heavens and his ejes fixed steadily on the man. After a few s"conds he grabbed a cane from a man standing near, and before any one could prevent him, rapped Mr. Simms thrco times over the head, In flicting very painful wounds. He was taken in charge at once and explained that he thought he was killing the devil. "The devil" appeared against him this morning with his head bandaged and told the story here related.

There Is a world of talk lei-day about the McMillan Gorman fight last night, and a thousand different notions as to the hon esty of the affair arc heard. Some of the pugilistic fraternity declare that the fight was an unadulterated fake1, such as has rarely, if ever, bevn se-en here before. Others say that It was on the level, and that if it had gone on McMillan would have won in due lime. The manner In which the match was brought about seems to have crevited the Impression berore the men got Into the ring that It was not to ho on merit. Mc Millan an J Gorman lirsl agree-d to fight for (10 per cent, of the gate money, the w Inner to take 40 mid the loser 20 percent. Later, It is claimed. Bill and Paddy got together nnel fixed up an agreement by which each man was to take half of the 60 er cent., nnd the fact that Billy Woods seems to hae done the" negotiating for both men from the beginning made it appear to snmc that they were In sim ply for a show, not a fight. Both McMillan anil Gorman deny that there was any Job fixed between them. They say that thejtralied honestly and rought the best they could as long as the bout went on. The Eureka Club people and u good many outsiders, howeer, say that from the time the men put up their Sands It was appirent they were not in the ring to give the spectators a run for thelrmieiey, and Eddie Heath, who refcreeil the bout, declares it was the sorriest ex cuse for a fight that the club has ct had to stand, notwithstanding Tim Hurst's declaration that his decision was a "rot ten" ohe. The thing that made the bout look scaly to Heath and mauy others seems to hau occurred in the se-cond round. Gorman hit McMillan a stunning jolt that, it followed as a fwhter who was sincerely at his work would have followed It, would haie re sulted in the Washington man going out then and there. But Faddy in the most flagrant manner allow (si Billy to escape. Gorman, In ex plaining this, sas he knows he had Mc Millan at his nurey at that parllcuhiL moment, but that lie was simply too weak to follow up his advantage. In this, Billy Woods, who was Paddy's chief adviser, bears him out. Woods sas that when the match was made he be lieved Gorman could win, but that he is now convinced that he Is not the man he was a few cars ago. and that he1 could not have beaten McMillan at any time other than the time cited. Billy nys Gorman has simply hail hlsday. "So far ns fixlni a fake is concerned," said Woods, "I have been In the fighting business for a good many 5 ears and have had never nnthlng to do with a fake, and I am loo old to begin now. Gorman was beaten and McMillan should have had a decision. What elo people want in a boxing match, niihow? Do they think men ought to take axes and go at each other? These men put up a good and hoti'M fight, so far as It went, and the no rontel decision wasastrangeone. Itought io he called a no coin test decision. That's what it meant." The fighters ami their friends gathered nt the Eureka headquart'-about 11 o'clock Hits mori.ing to scs1 what the club officials intended to do for them In a money way. It is claimed that something like $1,500 was taken for tickets. - Tat Baedy is still looking for a match, but there seems to be nothing In sight for him. Frank Em. and Jack Skellvare to meet at the Manhattan Club on Friday night. This is the second bout between thi'se two light ones, and Skrlly hopes to even things up.

Lower California Fnr Better Than Culm or Hawaiian Island. W. L. Slow, of Oaklard, Cal., wants to know why, while all this talk of annexation is going on, we do not remember that BaJa California, one of the loveliest and most prolific lands under the sun, Is not et ours, although the peninsula belongs lo the United States. I have often wondered myself whv that beautiful country docs not attract greater attention from Immigrants and colonists. San Jose Del Carpo is described as a city without a drugstore, doctor or attorney. The Ban Francisco Academy of Science calls the cape region "the tropical garden of the world." There four crops grow and ripen every year and vegetation is peren nial. Dr. Gustavo Eisen, who was one of the academy's recent exploring parties, savs:. "The horticultural products are entirely tropical, maize, beans, sugar cane are growing lu-vast plantations. Coffee trees were loadod-with ten barrels each an ex traordinary yield. Mangoes grow very large. There arc cocoanuts and dale palms everywhere; also alligator pears, guavas, lemons, limes and oranges." In the extreme southern part, some thirty miles cast of Cape San Lucas, says Mr. Stow, there is a beautiful valley forth miles long, through which a long river flows. The water is perfectly pellucid, as is all water in the cape region, and consequently chills and fevers are unknownrAll crops go without irrigation and there are no bar ren rocks every foot of the soil is covered by vegetation. What with tropical birds and flowers it is a writable paradise Just the place for extensive colonization. A young German professor who strayed clown there said I can get the gift of leagues of land for this purpose from the Mexican government. II we arc going lo annex anything why begin with chilly Newfoundland, mala rial Cuba, or even cholera-plagued Ha waii? I vote for Lower California. M. P. Handy, in Chicago Tunes Herald.

The State Department has long been in terested in a diplomatic controversy with theSvvlssgoveriimcutoveroiieoftliemaiiy titizeiihip incidents which form the bulk of international quarrels. This Is I he caseof a man named Tschudy, Kho lived in Camden, N. J., and who a few days after taking out naturalization papers In this country, an act he performed as soon as he was of age, visited his parents in Switze-rland. He was armed with a certificate of naturalization and a passport width he had obtaluedof our rnln itcr at Berne. Notwithstanding these evidences of his American citizenship, and to the surprise of the United Slates legaliou, he was seized and compelled to enter the Swiss army. He protc-tetl. and the American minister urged the authorities to release a man who was no longer amenable to suth Swiss laws as compel military duty. This view was not accepiahle to theSwiss officials, who maintained that Tsehudy had no right to discard his allegiance to his native country, and had not done so, in fact. They insisted he must report for duty, and show no signs of jieldmg to the American view ot the case. There Is a good deal more In this Incident than that of securing for a New Jerscyite an exemption from military work in Switzerland. There is a principle in volved which Secretary of State Oluey docs not intend shall lie unheeded by the Swiss officials, and he has directed that the matter be urged to a prompt and sat isfactory termination.

New has not been quoted correctly. There is nothing new in the statement that Gen. Harrison is in no sense a candidate for the nomination. As he is not a candidate, be cannot be expected to go through the form of withdrawing. "No one but Mr. New, if he Is correctly quoted, is to be held responsible for the opinion that Gen. Harrison would not favor the nomination of Mr. Reed or ot Gov. McKinley. "Gen. Harrison should not be held ac countable for the utterance of any one to that effect, and especially in view of the -well-known fact that he has never tried to influence nominations. "Gen. Harrison, like other men before the public, Is to be judged by his own con duct or expressions, and not by the opinions or words of his friends."

San Francisco Call that she was the first woman in America to ride a bicycle; that she had to Import It then, and that this was In 1880, says the Uurfalo Courier. It Is disagreeable to seem to contradict a lady, but we are forced to say,. "Nay, nay, Pauline," unless jou rode the "good old ordinary," or high wheel, for the dropped frame bicycle for women was not brought out until long after 1880. Its in ventor is understood to have been Owen, at Washington, and we have always sup posed the lirst woman rider ofthc bicycle, except on the stage, to have been Mrs. Smith, who rode In an L. A. W. meet pro cession in Uufralo in 1889 or 1800. She was the wife of the Washington manufacturer who was introducing the wheel. As the first wheels for women were made in this country, the allusion to the necessity of importing Miss Hall's is not clear. Perhaps the reporter is at fault once more. Rev.
