Woods Court News. A sensation is likely to develop before the present grand jury has finished its session. An attorney, who has been identi fied with the anti-saloon movement in this city, held a brief conference with Prosecutor Wananiakcr, Tues day, for the purpose of calling-that official's attention to certain testi mony given at a recent hearing in this city, by one of the witnesses for the defense. The lawyer says that he has good grounds' for believing that a large part of it was untrue. If this can be proven, he urged that an indictment for perjury be returned against the alleged uiTeiider. The statutes make this offense a vt-y serious one. The case has not yet been taken up by the grand jury. , Attorney-Involved., w-..-. -": The grand jury considered a case, called to their attention by Green township parties, Thursday.

Nothing bettor in the way of band music hat ever been heard in the city of Akron. Yet,-notwithstanding the interna tional . reputation of this famous Italian baud, and its record in this country, there remained some vacant seats. The boxes appeared more melancholy than is usual on such occasions, and many of the melo dious notes were lost in the recesses of these yawning apertures. The music was severely classical, and in many places completely transcended the appreciation of the audience. As to the work of the band itself, Lit revealed that precision of move ment and mastery r intonation, which can only come by long and as sidious work and under the direction of a master hand.

Captain Tillson swore in three men at the recruiting office Thursday morning.

Team Allegheny College Players Had a Walk Away. The New York papeis, in com menting on the Ruhlin and Maher tight, give the Akron heavyweight credit for a much better showing "than the press dispatches sent out from. that city. Ruhlin should have been given the decision. He was the stronger at the finish and demon strated his superiority all the way through. "The result was a virtual vietory for Ruhlin and somewhat or a set back for Maher, as the latter had been classed above the German pugi list, says the Sun. In point of science it was about a stand-off. Ruhlin's strength and endurance, however, offset Maher's heavy hitting. But the Oliioau had not the power to deliver blows that could produce a peaceful sleep. Ruhlin had fifteen pounds the better of it in weight, and pos sessed an advantage in height and reach. He was also more skilfully The Journal sizes up the result as follows: "A huge surprise party was sprung at the Lenox Athletic, club Tuesday night. The betting said that Maher would win quick. A few thought Ruhlin would win if it went over ten rounds; and nobody had an idea it w ould go the limit. But it w ent, and it is likely can be. put down as the fastest twenty-round heavyweight light of history. It was a terrific af fair all the way. Mailer's eyes be gan to close in "he fourth round and just let in light at the close. He was punished worse than any man who has ever left the Lenox ring, and all doubt as to his gameness was settled forever. There never lived a gainer man than Peter Maher. He never faltered in spite of the gruelling and fought a great fight." Buchtel's Second. Attempt. Buchtel teani made its second at tempt to play the great national game on the College athletic field Wednesday afternoon. A crowd of 25 young ladies and half as many men witnessed the un equal contest. The visitors, repre senting Allegheny college of Mead ville, .Pa., had a walk-away. Tho home players were never in the run ning. " Buchtel was good in spots but these were few and far between. The Pennsylvanians persisted in knock ing the ball in other localities. With anything like decent support for Or rin, Buchtel's pitcher, the score of the visitors would have been much less. Bnjwnell u Hist, Eaves in center, audrriee at short played the game like veterans, especially Brownell, who will graduate this year, having taken a 20 years course in base ball ism.
