The Next General Assembly to Meet at Detroit. Important Convention of Catholic Societies at Milwaukee. A Rumor That George Gould Has Resigned the Pacific Mail Presidency—Gen eral Gleanings. Associated Press Dispatches, i Saratoga, May 26. —At the Presby terian general assembly today the re port of the committee on synodical records was read. They were mostly ap proved. The report of the standing committee on publication was delivered by its chairman, Dr. Howard Crosby. Resolutions were offered approving the work and recommending that the com mittee consider the expediency of pub lishing Sunday school helps and litera ture in the German and Scandinavian languages. The report of the committee on un employed ministers and vacant churches was presented, and recommended an in crease of the episcopal powers by the presbytery and a paid secretary, "to fa cilitate intercourse, and a fund of five thousand dollars, to be called the min isterial adjustment fund, to pay ex penses. The committee on finance reported that the expense? of the assembly were provided for, and the balance in the treasury was $72,000. One reason for the accumulation of so much money in the general fund is the prospect of meeting on the Pacific coast, which will involve an extra expense of not less than $00,000. A large number of committee reports were acted on. Relating to the request from two col ored presbyteries to be treated as inde pendent in their application for mis sionary aid, the same as the white pres byteries, the report of the committee on freodmen favored keeping them in subordination to the freedmen's board. Dr. Booth, of New York, protested in dignantly against the recommendation of the board. After a spirited debate it was voted, 170 to 125, to grant the re quest of the colored presbyteries. The report of the committee on deaconesses recognized the claim that women served in the apostolic churches in offices similar to that of deacons, and held that they may lie elected and set apart in a similar way, this not being a step in the direction of giving them a license to preach. There was a long debate on the ques tion of amending the form of govern ment to correspond to this report, but the recommendations of the committee that there be sent to the presbyteries an overture for such a change, was ac cepted. At the night session the nominating committee announced the following committee to do the actual work of re vision and report to the assembly in 1891. The committee was accepted by the assembly unanimously: Seminary professors—YV. H. Greene, Princeton ; Thomas H. Hastings, Union ; M. B. Bydle, Allegheny, W. H. Bocher, Auburn ; E. D. Morris, Lane ; Herrick Johnson, McConnell; Wm. Alexander, San Francisco. College Presidents —Francis L. Patton, Princeton ; VV. C. Roberts, Lake Forest. Pastors —W. E. Moore, Columbus, Ohio (moderator of assembly); 11. J. Vandyke, Brooklyn ; Ebenezer Erskine, Cbambersburg, Pa.; J. T. Liftwitb, Bal timore; J. C. Nichols, St. Louis; E. R. I Burkbalter, Cedar Rapids, lowa. Elders—Ex-Justice Strong, Washing ton ; ex-Senator McMillin, St. Paul; Judge Alfred Hand, Scranton, Pa.; Em erson E. White, Cincinnati; Judge Henry D. Saylor, Huntington, Ind.; Winthrop S.Oilman, New York; Rarker Eumere, Trenton, N. J.; Wm. Ernest, New York: George Junkin, Philadel phia ; Charles R. Charnley, Chicago. Detroit was chosen on the second bal lot as the place of meeting for the next assembly. WISCONSIN CATHOLICS. A Large and Important Convention at Milwaukee. Milwaukee, May 26. —The first con vention of German Catholic societies of Wisconsin opened here this morning. Up to noon today nearly 3,000 members of the societies, 100 delegates and about 3,000 excursionists had reported at head quarters. Nothing but organization was accomplished today. It is expected that the organization will adopt resolu tions in opposition to the Bennet com pulsory school law, which is just now shaking political foundations in the Badger state. A parade of the various local societies and visiting delegations was in progress this afternoon. There seems to be an absence of a direct pur pose on the part of the convention. The present constitution of the societies pro hibits interference in politics. It is sur mised that this will be removed, in or der that the Catholics may exert them selves against the school law next fall. The leaders, however, scout the idea that the meeting has any direct bearing on the coming campaign in Wisconsin. PACIFIC MAIL. Rumors Afloat that George Gould Has Resigned. New York, May 20. —Reports were current this afternoon that George Gould resigned the presidency of the Pacific Mall and was succeeded by Thomas B. Huston, and that Calvin S. Brice and Samuel S.

Frohihitlon in South Dakota. Vermilion, S. I)., May 20.—Today was set for the hearing of the petition of Druggist Salmar for a permit to sell liquor under the prohibition law. About 300 students of the university, half of whom were ladies, quit their classes and paraded the streets of the town with ban ners, shouting for prohibition. Over a hundred banners, with various mottoes against liquor were carried. The excite ment was intense. The protest was in tended to be an emphatic one, as it is alleged that Salmar has been violating the liquor laws for years. His case was continued until Thursday, when some trouble is expected. Violating the Alien Contract Lav. Chicago, May 20. —A local paper says that the treasury agents who have been here at the request of the Carpenters' Union, looking into the alleged importa tion of foreign laborers by the old mas ters' association, have secured evidence of numerous infractions of the law by that organization, and will soon begin prosecution.

The Sparring Exhibition Becomes a Slug ging Match and a General Melee Fol lows—Broken Heads, Etc. Ann Arbob, Mich, May 20.—The field day sports of the university students Saturday passed off pleasantly until the sparring contests began. In the middle weight contest William Yhay. a Detroit Athletic (Hub man, was pitted against ti, C. Glidden, a university student. It was a slogging match of the most pro nounced type; both were liberally be sprinkled with blood. The referee, who was a Detroit Club man, decided in favor of Vhay, despite the latter's fouls. Vhay then had to defent his honor against Arthur Frautzen, another uni versity man, and another brutal exhibi tion was witnessed. Frautzen had the best of the encounter, but Collins again gave the decision to Yhay. The students immediately gathered around Collins, with yells of "rush him," "kill him," and other remarks of the kind. Someone hit Collins and he struck back. A deputy sheriff rushed into the crowd to save Collins. In the melee he struck one of the boys with his cane, and the light waxed hot. He drew his revolver and threatened to shoot: but this only served to aggravate the trouble, and he was pounded and mauled by the mob. It took three officers and a lot of fight ing to rescue the deputy and Collins from the mob, and then it was not ac complished until the deputy had a scalp wound where he had been struck with a stone.

Won by the San Francisco Man in Nine Rounda—Joe's Superior Science Was All That Saved Him. San Francisco, May 20. —Fifteen hun dred excited members of the Occidental Club witnessed the fight to a finish be tween Joe Choynski, the heavy-weight who gave Corbett such a game and stub born fight, with skin gloves, on a barge near Benicia about a year ago, and Jack Davis, of Omaha, who came here with considerable reputation as a rusher. The purse was $1,500, $250 to the loser. Davis's previous record was somewhat shrouded in mystery, and in conse quence the local betting men were shy about laying much money, even at the long odds which were offered, which in creased from 10 to 7 to 20 to 9 as the men entered the ring. Eddy Graney and Charley Tilloson attended Choyn ski ; Shannon and Kelliher were be hind Davis. Both men were in the pink of condition, Choynski weighing 105 and Davis 170. Frank Crockett was referee. Time was called at 9:25. •First Round—Davis created a surprise by his confident front, rushing Choynski to the ropes several times ; towards the close of a sharp rally at short-arm, Choynski tripped and fell heavily. Second Round—Davis was strong and continued his rushing tactics, landing a heavy body blow, which knocked Choynski to the floor. Then followed furious fighting on both sides, Davis showing great strength, while Choynski evened up matters with his superior science and getting out of the way. At the close of the second both were very much distressed. Third Round —The men started in without any preliminary sparring, at hard slugging, Davis showing up much superior in reaching. Choynski was knocked to the floor twice in this round, retaliating toward the close of the round with a hard left-hander in the wind. Davis stock was on the rise. Fourth Bound—Davis landed his left on Choynski's mouth, knocking him again to the floor. Joe rose perceptibly groggy. A clinch followed, and at the break Davis landed heavily on Choyn ski's ear, flooring him. Choynski's re cuperative powers here stood him in good stead, and while on the retreat he landed his right and left heavily on Davis's neck. At the call of time both were very groggy, and were led to their corners. Fifth Round—Choynski recovered his wind, and with scientific leading landed tw r o blows to Davis's one. At the close Choynski landed a heavy right-hander on the neck, knocking Davis to the ropes in a demoralized condition. Sixth Round—Both were vicious, and landed heavy right-handers on the stom ach. Choynski now used his left almost entirely, and succeeded in jabbing Davis in the neck repeatedly without return. The Omaha man was plainly getting very fatigued, and Choynski's science was telling. Seventh Round—Choynski landed a heavy left jab on the mouth, followed by a right on the mouth. Davis rushed and landed his left on the face twice. Choynski then got in two heavy left handers on the mouth, Davis spitting blood copiously. Eighth Round—Davis rushed as usual, but met with a heavy right and left on the mouth, knocking him to the floor. On arising the dose was repeated, and at the sound of the gong he was on the floor unable to move. Ninth Round —Choynski knocked Davis down, but the latter got up and was sent to the floor again by a blow on the jaw. He rose and faced Choynski, but before the latter could strike, again fell on his face and was counted out. Choynski was declared the winner. The contest from start to finish was a most excellent exhibition, and up to the eighth round was either man's fight. Choynski depended entirely upon his remarkable left hand, while Davis's great strength and terrific rushing qual ities almost finished the fight at several stages. Davis was considerably punished about the face. Choynski was not marked, but was weak at the end of the fight. A Terror Lynched. Selma, N. C, May 2(i.—While Tom Starling was returning home from this place in a wagon with his wife, Satur day, a crowd of men seized and took him into the woods, tied him to a tree and shot him.

The Newfoundland Legislature Sends an Angry Address to the Queen. Foreign Notes. Associated Press Dispatches 1 City of Mexico, May 2(3. —President Diaz, speaking of the filibustering move ment in Lower California, told an Asso ciated Press correspondent that he placed little importance in the move ment. He knew the United States gov ernment would not allow neutrality to be violated, and the Mexican govern ment would protect her territory.
