Pcckham looks to h in splendid condition at present but says he will go through a Sstemalic course of training.

The last two weeks before the contest will be used In reducing hud harden ing so that he can enter the' ring at his usual fighting weight or between 115 and 150 pounds.

To-c as its American representative to arrange the details of the light between Corbett and PHsimmons. Pox. as the owner of the pink sheet publication, has a wav of subordinating all sporting events brought off under his auspices to the private interests of his jiaper. Such procedure has made him and his paper unpopular m the past and the same objection obtains at present. The pink sheet has a wa of attacking those who will not wear its collar and for this Tea son John L. .Sullivan, while he was champion, was regularly maligned. as cornett ana i it7simmons are ootn Independent, financially. Pox and his folks will have to be very diplomatic and ver obliging to bring them to terms. If it be true that John L. Sullivan is slowly dvlng from dropsy, a wave of deep svmpathv and a hope for a peaceful ending will go out to him who has been the greatest gladiator of modern time-. Mail may have been Honest John L.'s faults, in his palmy d.ivs. but he bears the enviable reputation of having never turned a deaf ear to appeals for charit, and to his friends he has been as true as steel. It seems Impossible for 1'oung Grifro's friends to keep him sober. John Barley corn knocks him out every time they put on the gloves together. ON INTEHSTATE (.'AJIIILING. lleiifiiiii Gten hv the .Tiidielnry Com mittee on the Gillett Hill. The subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee, which has in charge the Gillett bill to prev entitle nullification of State anti gambling laws b extending to interstate gambling by telegraph the penalties pro vided for interstate gambling hv mail and express, gave a hearing vesterday to the author or the bill Wilbur T. Crafts, super intendent of the National Bureau of Rc roi ins. He argued that the hill is but the logical and needed completion or previous laws of Congiess against using the mails for like schemes. He urged that it was cspecialij needed to prevent the nullification of State legisla tion against gambling, such as has been enacted by tw eh estates within a v ear. and cited the recent decision of the circuit court in Montgomery, Ala., that gambling on taces In other States cannot be prohibited by Stale laws, at anyiatc.noth laws that allow even icstrlcted gambling on races within the State irself. He lererrcd to the fact that in nearly all States winter racing is forbidden, hut in the lack or such a law as this the whole country gamhles on the New Orleans w inter laces, which would he impossiblcif this law forbidding the transmission of gambling bets or reports of such bets should become a law. AT THE POOL, TOTJPNVMENT. Stewart nnd Lewis TJny tho Second Game of the Series. The publication in jesterday morning's Times of the result of tlc first inning of the match game of continuous pool between Pred Stewart, champion of the District, and "Kid" Lewis, of St. Paul, lit Emerich's B. and O. Hotel, hud tlie effectr of drawing an ov erf low crowd to the rooms last night. Play was called at 8 30 o'clock. Both men were in good form and it was a case of "diamond cut diamond'' from the start. , , A As on the first night, many .pretty shots were executed, and applaiise was liberally and Impartially bestowcih In order to allow ihe crowd and the pl.i ers a breathing spell, a 'recess was i.iti.n from 10 lo 102n o'clock. There will be no game tonight, but to morrow night (Saturday) the final and deciding contest will be pla eel. It will be remembered that the match is for $100 a bide, GOO points continuous pool. The score last night was: Lewis, 1GG: Stewart, 200. The lccoid for the two nights' pla is: Lewis, 370; Stewart, 402. The deciding game will be pla eel Sat urd.t night, commencing at 8 o'clock.

Tjndei the head or turr end stable gossip arc man interesting reminiscences of the starter, and in connection, would like to add that the impartialitv and r.nrness of Mars. Cassldy of the Old Dominion Jockey Club often had its humorous side. On one dc casion he was starting a ricld of fifteen and it was impossible to get one of the horses to break. But his remedy was original, and shows that it is not alw.ivs the fault or Ihe hoise. He got down Troni the stand, lode the horse himself, bet on him and won the lace. He acted on the advice of a famous English jockey who once said he would not bet on an horse he did not own, ride and train. Will No! Be Permitted lo Run On Electric Tracks.

Thecii.ingemaynot come until next week, but it is coming all the same. The mailer lias been interesting certain members or Congress a great deal. A plan has about been outlined and is to be for mulated Into a bill next week. Then it will be presented in the Senate. There Is but little doubt but tliat it will go swinimingl through. Some ol the effects will not be lelt for some time, but other advantages will be patent at mice. ONIMIOHSK CAR NUISANCE.

This road would be glad to have it. THE SllVf PLAN. The Capital Railway Company is also ready to take up the streets on which the Anacostia road is built. Ithas beennnx'ous to open up that territory and vv.'nls the streets. But the Anacostia management will not listen to .nothing. 'J hey want what they have and seem to think it Is good enough. The outline of the plan which has been about decided on Is this 'Ihe Anacostia management is to he given two jears In which to build an underground dearie road. They are to be required, also, to accept an offer of the Metropolitan Coin p.niyand transferattliecornerof Pour and-a-half street and Missouri avenue.

The West Virginia Republicans resident In Washington met and had a good oltl fjinoued love feast last night. They also, incidental!, carried the State lor their party as a mere matter of form. The object of the meeting, which was held at .Monumental Hall, was to resus citate the organization, which died out about two ears ago. Someof the State's Congressional delegation were expected, but it was explained that the legislators would present themselves at meetings after organisation had been perfected. Out of 125 West Virginia Republicans, officeholders and others, who live in Wash ington, flft nine were present last night. The meeting was called to order by Mr. Charles M Shinn, who explained that the object of reorganizing was largel for so cial causes, but there might possibly be other considerations, and lor various rea sons an organization was desirable. At subsequent meetiugs Congressmen would make addresses and Mountain State people would get better acquainted aud cultivate a neighborly feeling. For some peculiar reason no one wanted to act as temporary secretar. antl after a big list of dechnatious, A.. M.

Gibson, was ap pointed to revise it and report at the next meeting, which Is to be In two weeks. One or the member-disclaimed the notion that t he societs formation is for political purposes He said the political part fig ures only in that to be a member one must be a West Virginiau and a Republican.
