ktxcial TiLr.GJU.M to the dispatch.
Keb: York, Dec. 23. No surprise U felt
in sporting circles that the sum ol $45,000
is oSered as a parse lo be contested for by
Dick Burge, the light-weight champion of
Encland, and Jack JIcAulifle, America's
premier ligtit-w eight. Almost everybody
foresaw that when the Crescent City Club,
of New Orleans, and the Coney Island peo
ple came together in competition for this
match something gigantic wouid happen in
the purse line.
It is gratifying to local sports to know
that the Coney Island Club won in the
heated race for the match, and that it was
done in a bold raise of the Southerners'
offer ol 530,000 to 545,000. Fifty per cent
advance in the auction ot fights were too
much lor McAulifle to withstand, and so
he signed articles to fight before the Coney
Island Club for the larger purse, stipulat
ing, however, that the articles should be
ratified by his backer, Dick Roche.
That stipulation may be accented as hav
ing been granted, as Roche is" already on
record s saying tie would prefer to see the
contest held' on Coney Island. It is a vic
tory for the Northerners in their strife with
the' Crescent City, tor it is not believed that
even it the latter should bounce the figures
up still higher the articles now signed by
both principals would be nullified.
The date has not been selected, but the
latter part of March is talked about as sat
isfactorv toallAands. That will not allow
JIcAulifle any too much time, either, to get
into proper form.

OPERATORS PULLING TOGETHER
To Fecnre Modifications of the Proposed
FIIING THE 1HVMDU OF FRESH AU
Jfofe'interest has been excited in mining
circles during the past two days than for
years past. Operators from ail the regions
in Western Pennsylvania were in the city,
and .while not in consultation with the
mine inspectors, bosses and miners, were in
private caucus tryinjr to fix up the new pro-
poed raining law, so that it would not in
terfere so much with their interests. The
. law, u dratted by tbe committee, contained
many inconsistencies and clauses that were
not in harmony with the best interests of
tbe bituminous coal reglqns.
Tbe Minins Institute of Western Penn
sylvanfa that closed a two days' session last
evening was the most largely attended
meeting that has ever been held. The line
between the miners, and operators was
clearly drawn and they were constantly
contending for some vantage point At
times the discussion was very heated.
Every point was closely contended. The
law as drafted contained so many ambiguous
terms and meanincless sentences, that
every section bad to be closely scrutinized
and amended. Tne. .wore was very slowly
performed and when the two days' work
was done only about half of the law had
been gone over and worded to the satisfac
tion of both sides.
The Operators Pulled Together.
The operators acted in unison and were
much more successful in securing the con
cessions desired than the miners, who were
divided pn certain points raised and in
others did not know exactly what they did
want. In the uncertainty that prevailed.
the operators generally pressed their point
n ith vigor and carried the day. This result
was the outcome of a perfect understanding.
The operators were not members of the
Mining Institute, but when they heard that
the new mining lsw was to be considered
about 60 of them came here to participate
in tbe proceedings. Las! Wednesday night
they met at the Monongahela .House and
effected a temporary organization by elect
ing Roger Hartley President and S. M.
Tavlpr Secretary. The law was immediately
taken up and carefully considered.
Such " points as did not 'suit
them were amended and the plan outlined
whereby the amendments should be. brought
"before the institute when the law came np
tor consideration. The session was con
tinued far into the night, and .as much of
the law gone over as it would be possible to
be disposed of by the ,institute until they
had time to arrange tor their parts.
A notber Meeting of Operators.
The operators met at the Honongahela
House again at 10 o'clock Wednesday
morning, and went to the opening session
of the Mining Institute in the Court House.
They were cordially received, and allowed
to take part in the discuisioa. They took
an active interest in the day's proceedings.
So point was allowed to pass by without
receiving careful attention, and when tbe
first day's work was done not as much of
tbe law had been gone over as bad been
considered the night before in private cau
cus. The operators again met in the evening,
and after discussing the law until 10:30
o'clock, the matter was put into the hands
of a committee that worked at the law until
1:30 o'clock Friday morning, and got oVer
as much as could be disposed of by the in
stitute at its regular sessions yesterday.
-Dlscnsslnje theVentilation of Mines.
Almost the Satire day -was taken up in
discussing the section relating to the venti
lation of mines. ,The section required that
the minimum amount ot air in all mines
shall be 150 cubic feet for each and every
person employed therein. All of the op
erators and many of tbe mine bosses, super
intendents, inspectors and miners opposed
the adoption of the section as read, and
argued that in many mines in mountainous
regions 100 cubic feet of air for each per
son employed therein was all that was
required, and that it would be unjust t as
well as unnecessary to compel operators' of
such mines to go to the expense of building
ventilating apparatus to meet the require
ments of tbe section. Those who favored
the adoption of the section as read argued
that in every mine the minimum amount of
air should be ISO cubic feet per person em
ployed therein, and sited the Hill Farm mine
disaster of June 26, 1890, as an instance
where the lives of SO miners were
lost on I
account of there not bein; sufficient
amount of air in the mine at the time the
explosion occurre I.
A vote was taken on the amendment and
it passed by a big majority. The section
was then adopted as amended and reads as
Tbe Minlmnm Amount of Fresh Air.
Tho operator or superintendent of every
bituminous coalmine where shaft, slope or
"drift is U3ed shall provide and hereafter
maintain for' every such mine adequate
means for ventilation, affording not less
than 100 cubic feet of air per minute for
mines In which no explosive pases abound,
and not less than 150 cubic feet in mines
generating nolsonous or noxious explosive
gases lor each and every person employed
therein, and as much jnore as two or more
of the mine inspectors may deem requisite,
which shall be circulated through and
around tbe main entrance and the entries
to an extent that will dilute, carry off and
render harmless the noxious or dangerous
It is the opinion of many of those present
that the adoption ot this section as amended
'means the passage bf the law at the ensuing
session of the Legislature.
Not more than, one-third of the law had
been considered, and it was almost time to
adjourn. A resolution was then offered
requiring tbe Chairman to appoint a com
mittee of five to consider tbe other sections
of the Isat and to prepare them for submis
sion to tbe Legislature, and that their
work be final, This motion was amended
by a motion that a committee of five
appointed by the operators meet jointly
with the committee appointed bv the
Chairman, and alter considerable discus
sion this was agreed to by an almost unani
The Chairman of the committee appointed
by the operators is A. Dempster, with W.
P. DeArmitt, Secretary.

A BURST OE SUNLIGHT.
The Discovery of Doctors Who Can Cure
Where Others Have Failed .Mrs. Eliz
abeth HIpner Suffered Terribly for
Months and Sought Every Means to Ob
tain Belief Drs. Copeland, HaU and
Byers' Constant Battle With Disease.
'How many people there nro who go from
doctor to doctor, from cllnlo to clinic, and
Ironi hospital to hospital, suffering from a
complication of diseases, boing treated for
one thing and then another, and never re
oolvlnz the right treatment after nlL
To such the discovery of a physician who
nnderstandshls or her case, who applies the
right treatment and relieves the sufferer
from pain and distress. Is like a burst or
sunliahr through an apaarently impene
Drs. Copeland, Hall and Byers do not pre
tend to be more skillful than all other phy
sioians. but the statements they present
from week to week frequently show that
they have succeoded in curing: cases that
dozens of reputable physicians have tailed
in. The following statement Is additional
evidence in this respect, and is interesting
as showing bow completely Drs. Copeland,
HaU and Byers master cases of chronic dis
ease that come beiore them.
.Mrs. Elizabeth Hipner, a widow lady, re
siding at rear No. 533 Fifth avenue, lus been
suffering tor some time with a complication
of troubles which bad baffled the skin orner
family physicians. One treated her for liver
trouble, another lor heart trouble, and still
another Tor stomach jtrouble, but Bhe found
no relief until she consulted Drs. Copeland,
HaU and Byers.
It seem very strange to Dr. Copeland,
Hall and Byers that so lew physician- look
beyond tho actual seat of pain for the cause
of a disease, when they all are taught the
same lessons in physiology and patliolojlcal
anatomy at tho different medical colleges.
Now that physiology is being taught in the
schools even a child knows that tbe pneumo
gastrio nerve, which has nervet filaments
distributed to the heart, the lungs and the
Stomacb, controls these different organs, and
that where one is affected the others are
liable to sympathize with it by exhlbi ting
pain, disordered function, etc.
If a glass or cold water is drank whUe one
is in an overheated condition paralysis or
the heart and instant death are apt to occur
through the action o this great nerve.
Hence it is easy to understand bow a disor
dered condition of tne stomach can produce
a perverted action or the heart and lungs,
causing palpitation or flntterins of tbo
heart nnd difficult breathinir, and all th
various symptoms resulting from disordered
circulation and respiration, such as cold
hands and feet, smothering or suffocative
sensation. dizzines,nervousness and trem
bling of the limbs and body, so bad nt times
that one staggers as if Intoxicated and has
to eventually sit down or irrasp something
for support to keep from falling.

Another Cure Which Again Proves the Cor
rectness of Drs. Copeland, HaU and
Byers' Theory That These Troubles Are
Due to a General Catarrhal Condition of
'I have been troubled since last May with
a complication of diseases," says Mrs. Hip
ner, "and have tried numerous doctors and
patent medicines without avail until I cpn
sulted Drs. Copeland, Hall and Byers. My
principal trouble seemed to be with my
stomach. I had a bad, pasty taste In my
mouth every morning when I first got np,
with no appetite at all for breakfast. Ifl
forced mvself to eat something then tho
trouble began with pain, sickness, a heavy
distressing reeling, bloating and rifting, etc
After awhile palnltatlon or fluttering of tbe
heart would set in and I would feel as If I
Mr. Ehzibeth Hipner, Hear CSS Fifth Av , CUy.
was ttoing to smother or choke. I would get
so dizzy or lielit beaded and my heart would
beat so bard 1 would have to sit down and
gasp for breath.
"At night my heart would often beat so
hard I could not sleep, and I would awaken
in the morning sore, tired and acnlng all
over, not a bit rested or refreshed.
"I also had a constant beadacbe, stoppage
of the nostrils with drooping of tnncus Into
my throat, which kopt me hawking and
spitting to clear away. A ball would often
gather in my throat which I could neither
get up nor down, when I wonld get these
suffocating spells. . ..
"When I called at Drs. Copeland, Hall and
Byers' office I was feeling very miserable
and the sympathetic manner In which they
talked to me nnd explained my trouble
brightened and cheered me up. They as
sured me that they understood my trouble
thoroughly, as thev saw hundreds of cases
Just like it and knew exactly what to do,
that my trouble was due to a general catar
rhal condition of the whole system, more
particularly affecting the stomach, and
that the otber symptoms were merely sym
pathetic and would disappear as my stom
ach trouble was reUeved.
"The results in my case have proved the
wisdom of tbelr counsel and the Justness or
their claims and methods of treatment, as
all the distressing symptoms have disap
peared. My stomach is now all right, have
no trouble witli my heart or with my
breathing, and I sleep all night and wake in
the morning greatly refreshed and rested.
1 heartilv Indorse Drs. Copeland, HaU and
Byers as skillful physicians and kindly and
Of a Personal Nature.
If Drs. Copeland, Hall and Eyers are
proud of one thing moro than another It is
tbe fact that their patients have a feeling of
gennlne affection and gratitude for them
long after giving up treatment, for the
kindly interest manifested in their cases. It
Is a genuine pleasure for them to follow a
peculiarly aggravated chronic disease
through its different phases, notlns the
symptoms of each stage, especially as It
nears a favorable termination." Next to tho
patient and the patient's family they are
best pleased at tbe approach of this end, for
ithere Is nothing ao precious as perfect
health, and there Is no happiness so perfect
as that of a physician when he can say to a
loving hnsoand, wife or parent, "here, I
hand you back your loved ono restored to
health at last." ,
