Indianapolis, Dec. 28. —Today was a
gala day in local Chinatown, particu
larly at Sam Lung's laundry, which was
the chief scene of merrymaking prelim
inary to the Masonic ceremonies which
will be celebrated tomorrow at the same
place. On Saturday, Mong Dv, a chief
master and bishop; Ciiee Kung Tong,
presiding elder, and Ah Hee, secretary
of the national lodge of Chinese Free
Masons, all citizens of San Francisco,
arrived in Indianapolis to preside over
the degree work which will be performed
tomorrow in fine style. All today China
men were arriving from various parts of
the state to either witness or participate
in the ceremonies, during which, it s
said, several candidates from this city
and neighboring towns will curl up their
queues and ride the goat, alter the regu

Rounds.
New York, Dec. 28. —"Swipes, the
Newsboy," oi this city, and Jack Bren
nan, of Brooklyn, fought to a finish on
Long Island, today. Brennan is a Strap
ping big fellow, nearly six feet high, and
weighs 150. Swipes is a bantam of
about 120 pounds, and when the two
men entered the ring, tho contrast was
something remarkable. Swipes received
a terrible "facer" in the first round, and
Brennan could have finished him, but
stood still until Swipes recovered. In
the secor.d round Swipes was knocked
through the ropes, and in the third
round Brennan "back-holed" Swipes
and threw him heav'ly to the floor.
Swipes was inarvelously game, and now
began to play tor the big fellow's heart
and wind. In the fifth round, Swipes
had Brennan so weak that he was able
to attack the latter's head and face. He
had Brennan falling all over the ropes,
and would have knocked him out before
the close of the round, had not Bren
ftan's seconds thrown up the sponge.
LATIEii DAY SAIKTS.
Disciples of Joe Smith Organizo a mis
sion in Chicago.
Chicago, L>ee. 28. —Au effort is about
to be made to establish permanently in
Chicago the sect known as the Reorgan
ized Church of Jesus Christ oi Latter
Day Saints. In a modest way gather
ings of those in the city w ho maintained
this faith have been held, but not until
now has there been any attempt at or
ganization. The headquarters of the
denomination is at Lamoni, Decatur
county, la. Within a few weeks, it is
said, missions will probably be estab
lished in different parts ol the city,
where services will be held regularly.
A preliminary meeting was held today
at No. 213 West Madison street. The
people present were more earnest than
numerous. Elder E. C. Briggs, of
lowa, preached a sermon, in which the
fundamental principles of the faith were
explained. The sect declares the
teachings of the Mormon prophet,
Joseph Smith, to be the truth, but re
jects the doctrine of plural marriage.

JIM CUMMINS THE BANDIT SEEN
IN SAN DIEGO.
A Missouri Tourist Spots the Notorious
Train Robber—The Fee Murder in
Victoria—An Abandoned Ship—Etc.
San Diego, Cal., Dec. 28.—Chief of
Police Coyne this evening received a
letter from a man visiting in this city,
from Independence, Mo., informing him
that the writer had met face to face ou
the streets of San Diego, the notorious
Missouri bandit, Jim Cummins, for
whom a standing reward is offered,
dead or alive. The writer refused to
give his name fromfearof the vengeance
of the Cummins gang, who infest the
locality where he lives.
FEE'S SAD FATE.
Lawrence Wlielan Confesses the Murder
But Assigns No Reason.
Victoria, B. C, Dec. 28.—The mur
der of David F. Fee, on Christmas eve,
continues to be the main topic of con
versation in this city. At first the feel
ing ran so high that if the assassin had
been caught, be would undoubtedly
have been lynched. Early Christmas
morning Lawrence Wlielan. an Irish
man, surrendered to the police, stating
that he was the man who shot Fee. He
declined to make any further state
ment, and was locked up pending the
inquest. This was held yesterday, and
the jury returned a verdict against
Whelan, who was formally committed
for trial.
An Abandoned Ship.
San Francisco, Dec. 28.—The steamer
Scotia which arrived from Tillamook to
day, reports that on December 24th she
passed the Norwegian ship Straun,
waterlogged, and with a number of her
spars gone. The captain and crew had
deserted her. The Straun was loaded
with lumber and bound from Port Dis
covery to Melbourne. The Scotia at
tempted to take the wreck in tow, but
it was too heavy, and the hawser parted.
The Scotia therefore abandoned her, and
it is believed the Straun has gone ashore.
A Rank Failure in Nebraska.
Omaha, Dec. 28.—The Bee's Hastings,
Neb., special says that the City National
bank has been forced to the wall, and
that the authorities at Washington have
been notified to send on a receiver. No
statement of assets and liabilities has
been made.
Why She Is Not Pretty.
A man's opinion about a woman is al
ways curious, so I asked one the other
day if a woman in front of me, whom I
had been admiring for an entire block,
was not what I call a pretty woman.
He said "No;" and when I asked him
why, he answered me thus:
"She is not pretty, because her hair is
in disorder, and a man likes a woman's
hair to look smooth when she is on the
street.
"She is not pretty, because there is a
line of black under the eyes to enlarge
them, and a man likes a woman to have
a clean face.
"She is not pretty, because she is con
scious that she is attracting attention,
and a man likes a woman to be so lady
like on the street that she passes by un
noticed.
"She is not pretty, because she does
not walk well, she minces one moment
and trots the next, and a man likes to
see a woman a little slow and dignified
in her movements.
"She is not pretty, because her mouth
is too big, and a man would rather have
a woman with no mouth at alt than one
with one that seems adapted solely for
electioneering purposes.
"She is hot pretty, because she is bad
form, and if you were a man you would
have seen that at once and would have
passed her by as undesirable." So
much for the opinion of a man.
Again I render thanks that I am a
woman.—[Bab's Letter.

IN FOREIGN FIELDS.
Captain O'Shea Abandons His
Libel Suit.
He Writes a Letter to Refute
Healy's Charges.
Restrictions to be Taken Off Ameri
can Pork by Italy.
Court Chaplain Stoecker Preaches His
Farewell Sermon—Slavin Suffering
From Influenza.
Associated Press Dispatches.
London, Dec. 28. —Having been ad
vised that he cannot bring suit for libel
with hopes of success, Captain O'Shea
has published a letter to disprove the
truth of Timothy Healy's taunt that he
bartered his wife's honor to gain a seat
in parliament. The letter is dated Stal
bridge, December 24, 1896. The writer
says:
"When I was a Liberal I did ray
best to promote your (Healy's) candi
dature as a Liberal and supporter of
Gladstone, in Middle Armagh, and after
wards at Liverpool, in 1885. I quote
from a letter from Chamberlain to me,
dated December 20, 1800, in which he
says: 'I assume that you will take some
notice of the brutal attack on you made
by Mr. Healy at Kilkenny, although,
unless I am much mistaken,
you will have no legal rem
edy. His statements are entirely
inconsistent with what I know of the
general election of 1885. According to
my recollection, Parnell neglected at
first to give yon any assistance, and did
not do so until ho had some letters from
myself to another person, pointing out
that the Liberal party had been of real
advantage to both, and that such ser
vices continue was equally necessary, if
it were desired to maintain any kind of
friendly relations between the Irish
Nationalists and the Liberal party.
Respecting Galway, I find that I wrote
you to this effect in January, 1880, which
letter I authorize you to publish if you
think it useful. This correspondence
ought to afford sufficient evidence that
no such complicity existed as your tra
ducer has been base enough to insin
uate.' "
The letter from Chamberlain is marked
"private," and is dated January 22,1880.
It contains the following: "In the pres
ent condition oi Irish affairs, it is more
than ever unfortunate that you have
not found a seat. Is there any cbance
of your standing for one of those now
vacant in Ireland? Surely there must
be an interest in the Irish party to keep
open the channels of communication
with the Liberal leaders. If any possi
ble co-operation is expected, it is clear
that a great deal of preliminary talk
must be had, and I doubt, if any Liberal
leader is at present in direct or indirect
communication with the Irish repre
sentatives. Certainly I find myself very
much in the dark respecting their inten
tions and wishes. Cannot you get Par
nell's exequatur for one of the vacant
seats! It is really the least he can do
for you after all you have done for him."
A PORCINE TRIUMPH.
Italy Going to Take Her Restrictions off
the American Hog.
Rome, Dec. 28.—The Italian govern
ment several years ago prohibited the
importation of American pork and lard,
and soon after extended the prohibition
to all countries. It has just taken a
step, however, which it is believed will
result in the removal of the restriction
against the United States. The minis
ter of the interior has issued a decree re
citing that Italy is satisfied that Ger
many is taking every safeguard to
insure the wholesomeness of its home
products. Inasmuch as the inspection
laws of Germany are no more
rigid than those existing in I
the United States, it is believed
that Italy, whose trado relations with
the United States have been rapidly
growing, until now they have reached
figures exceeded only by three nations,
will be willing to remove the embargo
upon American pork and lard upon sim
ilar assurances of the United States of
thorough inspection. It is known that
the government is highly pleased with
its increasing trade with the United j
States, which has been less affected by
the new tariff tlian that of other na- !
tions. It is believed that the matter has
been taken up by Secretary Blame, and
that negotiations are pending. The
agents of a number of American ship
pers are now in this country. They say
that the removal of the restrictions
against the United States would prove
of the greatest benefit, and that they are
satisfied a large market is awaiting such
action.
Copper Scarce In Fiance.
Paris, Dec. 28.—The Rio Tin to direc
tors have declined to enter into a year's
contract with a number of vineyard syn
dicates for a supply of sulphate of cop
per. The reasons assigned for the re
fusal, are the reduction of their stock of
copper ore and large exports of sulphate
of copper to America. The syndicates
want to secure great quantities of sul
phates, which they use to avert disease
from the vines in iheir vineyards.
Chaplain Stoecker Ooes Out,
Berlin, Dec. 28. —Dr. Stoecker, the
anti-Semitic agitator, preached his fare
well sermon as court chaplain today.
The royal pew was empty. The whole
discourse was devoted to his retirement.
He declared that Emperor William, the
grandest of present rulers, had approved
.his anti-Semitic campaign.
A Railway Manager Resigns.
Montreal, Dec. 28.—1t is auuounced
tonight that Sir Joseph Hic.hson has
resigned as general manager of the
Grand Trunk railroad. He will be suc
ceeded by L. J. Sergeany, general traffic
manager.
Slaviu Has the Orlp.
London, Dec. 28.—Slavin, the pugilist,
has declined to accept Corrett's terms
for the proposed match at New Orleans,
as he is suffering from an attack in in
fluenza.
CONGRESS THIS WEEK.
The Republicans Continuing Their Great
Game of Blnff.
Washington, Dec. 28.—The nature of
the proceedings in the senate this week
will be determined by the attendance.
If no quorum is present, there will
prpbablv be adjournments from day to
day. If there is a quorum, counting the
senators on both sides of the chamber,
the debate on the elections bill will con
tinue, and one of the features of the dis
cussion will be a speech by Senator
Hoar, the sponsor of the bill In the sen
ate. Should there be a quorum of Re
publican senators during the week,
something hardly probable, then may
be expected the transformation of the
light skirmishing which has been in
progress for a month, into a heavy en
gagement of the political forces; for it is
the intention to take up the new cloture
rule introduced by Senator Ahtrich as
soon as a Republican majority can be
assured. It is not expected that any
business will be transacted in the house
during the coming week.
Change of Time and Place.
New York, Dec. 28.—The Journal of
I Finance says: The date for the meeting
of the railway presidents to complete
the organization of the new association,
has been changed from January 6th to
January sth, and the place of meeting
has also been changed from Chicago to
the Windsor hotel. New York city. This
change was made Saturday by the exec
utive committee in response to President
Miller, who telegraphed asking if it
would be convenient to hold the meet
ing in Chicago January 6th. It was
found that quite a number of the rail
way presidents, some of them repre
senting the largest lines in the country,
could not attend the meeting on
that date and in that city. As the
result of this, a conference" was held
Friday between some of tho largest in
terests involved, and telegrams were
sent out asking if the sth of January
I and the Windsor hotel, this city, would
be a convenient time and place for
I meeting. Saturday responses were re
ceived assenting to the choice, and a
call will be issued by wire tomorrow by
Mr. Miller, naming the change of date
.md place. The best judgment of those
deeply interested is that at this meeting
the new arrangement will be unani
mously adopted, and will be put in
force at the earliest practicable day.
DEATH'S HARVEST.
DISTINGUISHED PERSONS WHO

GEORGE BULL,
■Milwaukee, Dec. 28.—A dispatch to
the Sentinel tonight, from Superior,
Wis., reports the death at Bingliamp
ton, N. V., of (ieorge Hull, who left Su
perior a few weeks ago to spend the
winter east. Hull was the originator of
the Cardiff giant hoax. The reports as
to his death are conflicting. One at
tributes it to suicide; another says it
occurred the day following the robbery
of his son-in-law, Mr. Gates, who lost
$2500 in New York. The Cardiff giant
was dug up on Hull 's farm about twenty
years ago, and Hull made considerable
money out of it before the hoax was
discovered.

Fruitless Negotiations.
Taiilequah, I. T., Dec. 23.—The nego
tiations between the United States and
the Uherokees have proven fruitless, the
two commissions disagreeing on the
rights of the Cherokees to enter the
United States courts, and also as to the
price per acre, the Cherokees asking $2.
A New Swindle.
The latest swindle is rxscomplished by
means of a double fountain pen, one end
filled with good ink, the other with ink
that fades away in a day or two. The
sharper's plan is to call on farmers or
others, make a trade so advantageous to
them that they are wiUing to agree to
it, write the contract or agreement with
the ink that fades, then manage so that
the victim signs it with the ink that
lasts. Then, in a few days, they have
the name on a sheet of blank paper on
which any sort of a note can be written.
People who read tho papers are careful
how they sign their names to any docu
ment offered by a stranger. Others are
faugh t in this new trap. — Lewiston
