ALIENS TO BE DEPORTED.
Ilie Order tf CoinniiMioner 1'ovvilerlj
In Be Ilvcentptl.
T. V Powderly, Commissioner of Immi
gration, said today in regard to the refusal
of tho officers of the North German Lloyd
steamship Roland to deport fifteen immi
grants whom they Ind linded at Galveston,
in alleged: violation of the Contract Labor
law, that when the case was brought to his
attention. he consulted with Secretary Gage,
and after a. rev.cw of the evidence in the
case it was decided that the Contract Labor
IawBad been violitcd.
The deportation of the immigrants was
ordered, and. Commissioner Powderly sent
telegraphic instructions to Immigration Of
ficer Levy at Galveston to at once execute
Secretary Gage's order. Mr. Levy, the im
migration officer at Galveston, answered.
that the .North German Lloyd officials had
appealed to Assistant Secretary Tavlor for
a rehearing of the case, and that he, in an
swer to their request, said that he was in
clined to grant it.
It Is siid thit conlract labor immigrants
are receiving advice from some source to
appeal from the decision of the Commis
sioner General of Immigration, whenever
he refuses to permit them to land Mr
Povvuerlv s decisions have been rev crsed
in,two cacs, and the immigrants and their
aides seem to look upon this as favorable
to them, and as a relaxation of the en
forcement of the immigration laws
C. T. Bye, the Philadelphia representa
tive of the North Gcrniin Lloyd, called on
Assistant Secretary Tavlor, of tho Treasu
ry, this morning and presented reasons why
the fifteen immigrants who are refused
landing by Immigration Officer Levy, of
Galveston, should not be deported The
main reason presented by Mr Byo seemed
to be that the immigration officer at Gal
veston is mistaken m the identity of the
immigrants Mr. Bye said his company
would obey the decision of the Secretnrv
of the Treasury, but he thought he should,
be permitted to submit evidence which.
would entitle his clients to land.
Assistanr Secretary Taylor ordered that
the immigrants be deported with the nest
vessel of the company, but he also granted
the steamship company privilege to sub
mit new evidence should such be produced
before the departure of the nest steamer.

renewed its journey, with a new firemau,

later tho engine driver was found fifty

Lewis of Rochester will once more make
an attempt to secure the repeal of. the
Horton boxing law at this session of. the
legislature He will introduce in the as
sembly next week the same bill that he
presented last year calling for the repeal of
the law. He will not endeavor to amend,
the legislative statute, as he believes it
cannot be done so as to put an end to
prizefighting in this State He declares
that the boxing- contests of today are noth

Mr. Lewis is confident that his bill will
fare better at this session than it did last
year. He bases his hopes- upon aid from
the governor who recommends in his mes

ECHOES OF THE EIGHT.
The Itelntlrc Merit of McCoy
NEW YORK, Jan 3 Peter Maher has
no reason to be ashamed of the showing he
made against Kid McCoy at Coney Island
on Monday afternoon "While defeated, he
was not disgraced He was aggressive and
fast and did the best he knew to get to his
antagonist That he failed was no fault of
his but wa3 due to the fact that McCoy
v as entirely too fast and skillful for him
Tho fight Maher put up against McCoy
would very likely havo defeated Sharkey,
Corbett, and Ruhlin and possible ritzslm
mons as he is today.
McCoy and Jeffries are bad men for any
one to cut loose ou since they are both
cautious fighters And yet Maher had noth
ing else to do but cut loose, since he would
have been cut to pieces bv McCov a jab
bing left had -he attempted to play a wait
ing game. He mixed up as best he could
and showed to better advantage than in
any of his previoim fights, but his one fatal
weakness lack of defence left him open
to the Kid s wicked blows Maher's slash
ing way o fighting excited the admiration
of the spectators, while his utter lack ol
defence called for pity
Had Maher in his eirly career learned to
always keep watch of what the other fel
low was doing he would not have met with'
such difficulties in fighting his way up the
ladder He is now too old to learn, but he
can endeavor to use Judgment in fighting
his men If he ever gets on a match with
Sharkey he should go after the sailor just
as he did after McCoy. Sharkey is not
clever at avoiding rushes and Peter's
longer reach and taller figure wquld give
him the advantage Should Peter ever
fight Jeffries he should make the big man
come to him
No man in the ring today compares
to Kid McCoy in cleverness and ring gen
eralship combined, and the latest conquer
or of Maher is a very dangerous proposi
tion in the championship problem A man
who can enter the ring in condition weigh
ing 163 pounds is big enough to fight any
one, RiLg records prove that. Mi.Coy can
be good at that weight and is likely to
weith more a couple of years hence
Tbn ease with which McCoy handled
Maher s fierce rushes proves that hard hit
ters have no terrors for him In the con
dition he was on Monday he could doubtless
turn the tables on Tom Sharkey, although
a short, blocky, tough-jawed man like tho
sailor is a hard proposition for a tighter
of the McCc style. McCoy should out
point Jefcues without much difficulty in a
limited-round bout, providing he was able
to go the distance.
7 be fight of the century v ill occur when
McCo.. and J'itzsimmons come together.
Bob will need to be at his beU, but so will
McCov. The difteicnco in ago will bo in
the Kid's favor by some twelve years and
that may be too much of a handicap for
the former clwmp'on McCoy has a better
left thai- rit7 ard can land more blows
without a return than Bob But he can't
stard the punt-liing like Fitz can
McCoy knocked Mahe- down three times
with his left band anl the last blow was
a knockout Onlv onto did he feel Peter's
jaw with his r'gbt and tint was a glanc
ing blow, terriliu in force and in just tne
right plaie bad not Maher "screwed his
nut " McCov landed many left-hand
blows on Peter's face and also shook him
up with body punches, getting in return
onlv three blows that amounted to much
Not one of these three blows was in a
dangerous place and none of them did par
ticular damage Maher missed some hun
dreds of times with blows which might
have felled an o, and ho displayed an ag
gressiveness truly admirable
McCov has arranged to meet Joe Choyn
ski in. a 2-round bout at the Broadway
Athletic Club. January 12. and later will
tackle an unknown in a 6-round go at Chi
cago This unknown, will it is said, be
Peter Maher. Peter, who came back to
this city yesterday, says that McCoy ha-v
agreed to fight him again McCoy will
open a boxing school in New York

AMERICAN FLOUR IN MALTA.
More Dlicct Com mo ii lent Ion "W ilh (he
American flour and dther manufactured
artiles in the island of Malta are discussed
by United States Consul John H. Grout, jr ,
in a communication to the State Depart
ment He writes as follows.
"There has recently been a great in
crease m the quantities ot flour taken out
of bond for consumption in these islands.
For the first nine months of the present
year the quantity was 16,250,000 pounds
As nearly as I have been able to ascertain
by an investigation which has been some
what hindered by lack of official figures
and classification on the part ot the local
authorities, this flour was laid down here
principally by the several lines ot steamers
arriving from Liverpool, England What
proportion of merican flour was received
by way ot transshipment from that port it
is impossible to state It Is a faU, how
ever, that quantities of American flour are
shipped here from Liverpool and credited
to that port It is a fact, also, that all
classes ot American goods coming indi
rectly are credited to the rort of trans-
i shipment, and not to that of the onginaL
safe to say that 73 per cent of the flour im
portcil here, up to this year at least, was
milled and shipped at Liverpool, which
port has not only been in favorable compe
tition with us, both in pricei and quality,
but has enjoyed the advantage of being
nearer than New York, when goods have
to be transshipped The merchant here, by
cabling his order to Liverpool, can obtain
his goods in fourteen davs, on an average.
"Several merchants initiated a business
with Minneapolis millers some years ago,
but had to give it up on account of the
timelt took for their parcels to reach the
United States seaboard, the ocean, transit,
and the loss, delay, and damage by re
handling at intermediate ports. Cost was
also an Incidental feature. Another obsta
cle was fluctuations in price which oc
curred while their goods were on the way.
Of course, all of these things deterred them
from renewing their oiders.
"Now that tho importations of flour at
this port have swelled so materially, an at
tempt should be made by our millers to
reach U113 market in a more direct way
and in less time. With tbe certainty ot at
least a monthly sailing service from New
York for this port direct, I am sure that
the volume of. business in American flour,
as well as in a good many other articles of
American orogin, woud rapidly assume
large proportions here."

The Orlsrlu ot 3Ian Picturesque Kx
prenKtonH Ised ToiIa.
(From the Xcrr lork Fv coins Telegram)
There are many picturesque expressions
in constant and ererv -day use. and famii.
Liar a3 household words, having: their origin
in. passages to be round in the matchless
English of the grand old "King Jamea
version" ot tho Bible One who did not
know might hesitats to Lehevo that they
are supported by such high authority, and
our modern oversensitive taste might bo
temnted even to designate them as slang,
but they are really word pictures.
Nearly one-half of those here quoted,
with reference to chapter and vcrae. it
will be noticed, arc taken from the Psalms',
but David, the sweet singer, was what wo
would now call a familiar poet:
I have stuck unto my testimonies. O.
Lord, put me not to shame Pa cxix, SI
Their heart is as fat as grease, but L de
light in thy law. Fsv cxlv. 70.

stare upon me Ps. xtH. 17.

Ps xvuil. 25.
Is his mcrcv clean gone forever? Ps
The words ot his mouth were smoother
than butter, but war was la his heart.
Ps u. 21.

It Is by the Rev. Laurence Sterne, and
occurs in "The Sentimental Journey."
