Made Ruhlin Factor Fistic World. in Jim Kennedy Throwing Boquets at Himself. Challenge to High School Teams Sporting News. Despite the assertions of many of the fistic critics that a manager is a useless luxury for the average fight er, the statement is not borne out by the facts in the case, as a disciple of Blackstone would say, says the Den ver Times. "While it may be true that the managerial expense may be cut off without much harm by a man who has reached the top rung of the pugilistic ladder, it is just as true that a manager has become an al most indispensable necessity for the scrapper -who is working his way up ward. Advertising has been an es sential element in the success of ev ery fighter that has become promi nent in the past decade or two. An example of the worth of a manager is to be seen right here in Denver at the present time. Before Ous fiuhliu passed into the hands of the wily Billy Madden the Akron giant was, not much of a cutter of ice. In the months that Madden has had him, however, Ruhlin has become a decidedly dangerous factor in the heavyweight circles. Madden in sists that he will make him the champion heavyweight of the world before the year closes. At the pres ent time a good many of the fistic critics rank Ruhlin high up, and no less an authority than Billy Delaney puts him only a peg lower than Jef fries. Madden's advertising genius has boosted several of the past Queens berry stars to the top of the ladder. When ho took hold of John L. Sulli van, the latter was looked upon as a lusty lad, but it was not until Mad den, through the judicious use of printer's ink, and his rnany news paper friends, had taken hold of him did Sullivan become a dangerous candidate for the championship laurels. Madden had him the cham pion before the mighty JohnL. earn ed the title through the fistic route. Madden figured in a similar capacity in the case of Charley . Mitchell. "When Madden got hold of Mitchell the bloody Hinglishman was noth ing but a diamond in the rough, so to speak. But Madden gave him the requisite boosting, and in a compar ative short space of time Mitchell was champion of England and was ready to dispute the laurels of the work witli the American champions. Kennedy In New York. Big Joe Kennedy, the San Fran cisco heavyweight, arrived in New York Thursday. He is to tight Peter Maher at the Lenox Athletic club on September 26. Kennedy comes well recommended, and Eastern experts think he is a championship possibil ity. He is said to have made it in teresting for Tom Sharkey in a train ing bout with the Sailor, and Billy Delaney, Jim Jeffries' trainer, is un stinted in his praises of Kennedy. Peter Maher claims to be as good as ever, and doesn't pretend to be scared by stories of Kennedy's great ness. Kennedy is a stalwart man, nix feet in height, and weighs when in condition ISopounds. He strips mil GENTS' FlTR-Disoount THE ii At SE Howard St. this sale will continue until now at about 198 pounds. He de clares he has never been defeated. Kennedy has a wonderful physique and stands erect as an arrow. He is smooth shaven and possesses more intelligence than the ordinary run of scrappers. He said: "I am here to flcrht Peter Maher, and If I win I will be after a match with either Sharkey or Jeffries. The talk that I will train Sharkey for the Sailor's coming fight with Jeffries is not so. I am notgoing even near his quart ers. This would be a foolish tiling for me to do, especially when I have serious intentions of tackling him some day. I know Sharkey's style like a book. I have boxed with him several times in Frisco, and I have been credited with sending him down on different occasions. I am not given to boastingj but' I know I out pointed him often. I was matched to fight Jeffries in Frisco a year ago, but the champion never kept the match, although I trained hard for it." Chance for A. H. S.

L1B0RI LASHED MEBCIER HARD. tl Would Have Glvrn It to Him stronger, but Jouaust and Some or the General Came to Hi Kescue Ter theleM .Accomplished 3Iuch. Rennes, Aug. 23. When the fourth session of the tiiird week of the second trial by courtniarrial af Captain Alfred Dreyfus, charged with treason, opened at the Lycee here, Colonel Jouaust, presi dent of the court, ordered that, the evi dence given by M. Penot, a friend of the late Colouel Sandherr, chief of the intel ligence department, be read by the clerk 1 of the court. It was to the effect that Colonel Saudherr said the Dreyfus family offered him 150.000 francs ou condition that he would clear Dreyfus. Maitre Deniauge, for the defense, dis posed of this allegation by reading the actual note on the subject written by Saudherr, thereby proving that the colonel's remarks had been distorted, Dreyfus' brothers having only said: "We are convinced of the innocence of our brother, aud will spend our en ure fortune to discover the truth." The testimony of the first witness of the day, H. Linolle, a former official of the government, was also in favor of Dreyfus, as it was in direct contradic tion of what M. Du Breuil deposed the day before regarding the allesred inti macy of Dreyius with the German at tache at the honse of M. Bodson, a mu tnal fricud. The president of the court then called the next witness, Colonel Maurel, who was president of the Dreyfus court martial in 18!U. As M. Labori lashed him with poiuted questions the colonel hesitated aud then auswered in a short, choppy niauuer, and, when M. Labori filially disposed of him, the witness left the platform with the pale face and scared look' of a man who has awakened from a nightmare. Counsel had drawn from the colonel a confession that the secret dossier was commnnicated to the judges of the courtmartial of 18!)4 by Colonel Du Paty de Clam. This avowal produced a sen sation in court. Colonel Maurel admitted reading one of the secret- documents to the court which had not been seen by the de fense. He protested that only one docu ment was looked at, alleging that this sufficed to euable him to form a convic tion that could not be shaken. This protest inado matters worse, be cause, as M. Labori poiuted out, if he perused one it was Ins boonden duty to peruse all. Colonel Jouaust upheld Colo uel Maurel in his refusal to indicate the nature of the document he read, but M. Labori announced that he would sum mon Captain Froystatter, another mem ber of the tribunal of 18!)4, and get his version of what then passed behind the backs of the counsel for the defense All tliis, however, was only prelim inary to a tierce battle that ensued be tween M. Labori and General Mercier, the latter receiving reinforcements from General Roget, General Gonse and Gen eral Do Boisdoflfre, as well as valuable assistance f roiu Colonel Jouaust himself. Much excitement was produced. M. Labori took General Mercier over the whole ground of his previous depo sition. Whenever General Mercier was cor nered he declined to answer and Colonel Jouaust invariably supported him. M. Labori protested most energetically. M. Labori's cross-examination was successful so far as it went, but Colonel Jouaust prevented him pressing his ad vantage to the utmost, In fact, Jou aust's hostile attitude toward the coun sel for the defense then and during the cross-examination of the witness, M. De Grandinaisou, evoked the severest criri cism on the part of the public preseut and bodes ill for Dreytus. Not ouly Colouel Jouaust, but the other judges displayed considerable impatience dur ing Labori's scathing cross-examination. The lawyer made a strong point on the part Esterhazy played. Mercier said he did not know Ksterhazy and only saw him once, at the Zola trial. "That is very interesting," exclaimed M. Labori. "But, surely General Mer cier was present at the Esterhazy trial?" The general replied that he was nut there and that he knew nothing about the evidence in the Esterhazy prosecu tion. "What!" cried M. Labori, "General Mercier, who was the chief accuser of Dreyfus, did not oven follow the pro ceedings in the Esterliazy trial?" A loud murmur of surprise and indig nant comment came from the audience, but Colonel Jouaust immediately sup pressed it. Counsel tneu brought General Mer cier to nis assertion that 35,000,000 francs were used by the defenders of Dreyfus aud asked the general to say how ho knew this, who spent it and other awkward questions which the gen eral was unable to answer. M. Labori questioned General Mercier with reference to a document in the secret dossier, which it is affirmed ex isted prior to J 894, and yet was not pro duced at the first courtmartial of the prisoner. The general confessed that he did not know of its existence, and the same btatemeut was elicited from General Oonse, who declared that Colonel Saud herr was responsible for its non-production. These replies were tantamount to a confession that Colonel Sandherr and Lieutenant Colonel Henry played with, the minister of war, and even that Gen eral Gonse, assistant chief of the head quarters staff, the chief of the intelli gence department, keeping from the two latter just what he pleased. M. Labori proceeded to take up the Panizzardi dispatch and to bring out the contradictory translations of it and the falseness of the final version. The iinpertiueut behavior of General Roget was strikingly illustrated when he interrupted M. Labori's examination of General Chamoin, which had re sulted in Labori's scoring heavily against Mercier with the exclamation: "This examination is a waste of time." The examination of Cliamoiu showed Mercier m a very bad light, as it brought out that he had privately communicated to Chamoin, ou the first day of the6e cret sessions, a. report on the Paniz zardi dispatch for insertion in the secret, dossier. General Chamoin admitted that he did wrong in accepting the re port, but pleaded ignorance in judicial matters. The report consisted of three pages, of which the second and third, Chamoin declared, contained fantastio and, in fact, false representations. M. Iibori brought General Mercier to the bar in reference to this. Mercier admitted that the reports emanate,! from Du Paty do Clam, but claimed that lie himself did not understand it contents, though he thought it would bo interesting and perhaps useful to Chamoin. eoaoaaetja Call on us for..

After hearing General Mercier and General Chamoin ou the bubject, Col onel Jouaust declared the court would rule the dispatch out of evidence. The examination of General Mercier haviug been concluded, Colonel Jouaust asked Dreyfus if he had anything to say, and the prisoner, m a calm voice, replied to Mercier's statement that he, Dreyfus, could have obtained the in formation about the artillery, prom ised iu the bordereau, while staying at Bourges, where artillery trials were beiug held. Dreyfus entered into an explanation as to how ho speut his time, showing that- ho did not inform himself about the trials of the new guubrake. General Risbonrg, who was comman der of the Republ.cau guard in Paris iu 1894, was the next witness. He de scribed the scene with Captain Lebruu Renault, when the witness learned of Dreyfus' alleged confessions to Captain Lebrun-Reuault, the day after the pris oner's degradation. After being asked the usual question, Drevfus nrotosted afcimxt frfiiifiral Ris. "bourg's evidence. "I am surprised," the prisoner said, "that ho, Captain Lebrnn-Renault, could have made the statements attrib uted to him. Ou the way from the prison of La tsautc Captain Lobruu Kcuaul shook hands with him, a fact which is in contradiction of his state ment. Besides, when such a terrible charge has been hanging over a man who has resisted it for live years, wit nesses should not come here merely to speak their beliefs, but ought to bring proofs, positive proofs. Otherwise I am completely nonplussed as to how 1 cm reply." Sensation. Dreyfus then proceeded to give the true version of his words ou tlie occa sion of the alleged confession and dwelt on his protestations of innocence to Du Paty de Clam. The prisoner's remarks deeply im pressed his hearers. At the request of M. Demango, Gen eral Mercier was recalled and asked to explain whv, having sent Du Paty tie Clam to Uroyfiis to discover the amount of the injury Dreyfus had done, he had not- followed up his investigations. At one point General Mercier replied: "I might, perhaps, have thought of it. But it did not occur to me." The prisoner agaiu protested that the inquiry ought to have been followed up. "because it would have served to de stroy the fiction of a confession to which such importance is now attached." (Sensation.) The remainder of the sitting was taken up with the deposition of minor witnesses, mostly M. Beahrepaire'a pup- pets, wnosc evidence, when it did" not bore the audience, produced merriment. Two interesting scenes, however, took place, the first when M. Labori asked General Roget to give his opinion of Esterhazy's role and his visit to the German embassy Oct. 23. 1S97. Roget replied, in the tone of studied disdain which he habitually adopted toward counsel for the defense: "I absolutelv refuse to tell you." M. Laborf warndy insisted, but thh president of the court crushed him wite a curt refusal even to allow General Roget to respoud. The second scene was between M. J-abori and Colouel Jouaust, after the deposition of the Royalist deputv, De Graudinaisou, which" consisted of a claptrap tirade against I oreismers inter vening iu the affair and tittle tattle quite outside of the case, delivered in grandiloquent style aud ending with the preposterous words addressed to the judges: "If yon think Dreyfus inno cent acquit liim. But if you decide he is guilty, yon must pronounce his con demnation." M. Labori, however, cdled the dep uty back, lie wanted to examine sev eral of M. de Grandmaison's state ments, but Colouel Jouaust refused to allow the questions to be put, at which couusel became tremendously indignant aud insisted upon his right to do so, and a warm altercation ensued between the president of ins court and counsel. The former, however, maintained his deci sion, which was indisputablv unfair to Dreyfus,' aud M. Labori "sat down, gagged and boiling over with indigna tion.

State Treaiirer-I.1EUTKNAJT COLO NEL JAMES IX BAKSETT or the Tenth I'emifeIvanla lleglment. The only discordant note iu the con vention was sounded by Senator Will iam Flinn of Pittsburg, chairman of the anti-Quay organization iu the last legis lature. Mr. Fliun opposed the plauk in the platform endorsing tin; appoint ment of United States Senator Quay by Governor Stone. A rollcall was taken on the adoption of the platform as a whole and it was adopted by' a large majority. The anti-Quay delegates gen erally voted against the adoption of the platform aud tho nomination of Mr. Ad ams. Before the result of the ballot- for su preme court was announced the friends of Judge Archbald of Scrantou and ex Attorney General Palmer of Wilkcs barro moved to make Mr. Brown's nom ination unanimous. Superior Court Judge Dimuer Becbcr of Philadelphia was named in opposition to Mr. Adams and received the. vote of many auti Quay delegates. Judge Beeber was ap pointed by Governor Hastings and his term expires tho first Monday of next January. Ho was not nominated be cause he was not in good favor with the frieuds of Senator Quay. The nomination of Colonel Barnett was made by acclamation. The nomi nation of a supreme court, judge is equivalent to an election, by reason oi two vacancies iu the court and no electoi being entitled to vote for moro than one person. Aside from the nomi nation of the ticket and the adoption of the platform, new ruins were reported and adopted for the government of the state organization. There was a large attendance at the convention for -an oil' year, aud the proceedings wero quiet and orderly. Tho star attraction was the presence of Senator Quay as a delegate from Beaver county. He entered tho con vention hall with Chairman Klkiu just before tho assemblage was called to or der. His friends instantly recognized libit and cheered and applauded as he took a seat along the center aisle. He remained until aftor tho meeting of the resolutions committee and then quietly retired. Colonel Quay started later with a small party of friends ou a trip to Hip head of the Restigoucho riv, in Canada, where he is expected to spend about three weeks hunting moose and fishine for salmon and trout. . Senator C. L. Magce of Pittsburg was conspicuous by his absence. He is con valescent from a severe illness and by tUe advice of the physician ho did not attend the convention. Uhairman Penrose made a strong speech. The following resolutions, introduced by General Wiley, were unanimously adopted by the. convention: Whereas, The proud distinction has been conferred upon the Tenth Pennsylvania vol. nnteers of being tho only regiment east of the Mississippi river that was sent by our gov ernment to tho far off Philippines in order to uphold the dignity and honor of our nation and follow the d'-stinr of tho Stars and Stripes; and Whereas, The patriotic men .who belonged to this regiment were led by our fellow citi zen, the lieruiu and chivalric Colonel Alexan der Ij. Hawkins, in the campaign around Ma nila with such devotion and loyalty as to win the admiration not only of our own govern ment, but of the civilized world: and Whereas. The command which he had the honor to lend and the people of our state have been called upon to mourn his death, which occurred after he had won honor, fame and distinction upon the battlefield and whilst he was returning to his native land; therefore, Kesolved. That the Republican party of lViunJlvania in convention assembled, spread on record this testimonial of his honesty and integrity of character, his worth as a citizen and his loyalty and patriotic devotion to dnty as a soldier. We extend our 'waniie.,t sympathy to his Imreavnl widow and family in tho irreparable loss they, in common with the citizens of this commonwealth, bavo sustained. He it further resolved. That a copy of this testimonial In- spread upon the minutes of the convention and another copy be properly en grossed and forwarded to his widow. The platform adopted by the conven tion was as follows: We congratulate the American people upon the results ot the campaign of 1896, the estab lishment of asouud currency, the securing of protection to American industries, and the election or that champion of the common pe-jplo.

Wc reaffirm the principles ot our party de clared in the national platform by the St. Louis convention. The Republican party of Pennsylvania stands unequivocally and unre servedly for sound money, and favors a cur rency with which to pay the wages of labor and the earnings of capital, the soldier and the pensioner, as good as gold the world over. To further these ends we believe in nmin'. lin ing the existing gold standard and are mi alterably opjocd to the free coinage of ;! vr at the ratio of 16 to 1. B We renew and emphasize our allegiance to the policy of protection which is the bulwark of our industrial development and the founda tion of the. prosperity of our country. in cordially endorse and heartily appiove trie wise course pursued by our rcpresenta tlis iii congress in the enactment of the Dingley tariff law. We congratulate the country on the successful termination of the war uith spaiu aud recognize thewiidoinof the policy President MeKinley h is inaugurated in the management of the affairs in Cuba and Porto Rico and promise him cur faithful sup port iu Jthe prosecution of the war in the Philippines in order that tb) supremacy of the &a; planted there by the valor of our army and navy may be maintained. Pennsylvania is proud of the record made by her soldiers at Gettysburg, Antictam, Fredericksburg, the Wilderness. Chickamauga and upon other battlefields of the Civil war, and glories in the fact that the spirit of the old veterans has been handed down to their sons, who heroically followed the destiny ot the flag at San Juan hill, Coama. Malolos, La ;, nuns church and Malate. We feel a patriotic pride in the fact that very battle.fought in defense of our national honor has contained a record of tho brave leeds of Pennsylvania soldiers and we extend to those now returning from the' Philippine .stands a hearty welcome and express our ad miration for the courage and bravery with a hich they upheld the Sag of their country, and tho honor of our state. The Tenth Penn sylvania, under the leadership of the courage ens and lamented Hawkins, occupies the hon orable position of being tho only regiment east of tho Mississippi ri ter chosen for cam paign servic- in the dl.lat Philippines, and is now a matter of national history that they met the highest expectations of those who se lected them for this patriotic service. . To giv,i coatinued employment to tho in dustry, ingenuity and skill of the American niech mii; and laborer wo must find new mar ket alnoud for our surplus products. The rom n; r--ial control of additional territory will afford new markets which will necessarily in creas our commerc- and develop our manu fnctitrin: interests. We have ceased to be content with supplying products for homo consumption alone. Wo must keep pace with other nations in :- eking new fields for our commerce and to Hits end we support the liolicy of industrial commerce and national expansion. We favor for our national defense and the promotion of closer commercial relations between the sec tions of our vast territory, now an imperative necessity for the immediate commencement aud early completion of a great canal that will give communication between the Atlantic and Pacifb; oceans as well as its protection against foreign control. We favor the building up of our merchant marine upon tho lines laid out by the bills re isirtcd favorably to the senate and house, sec ond session, Fifty-fifth congress, so that we may have a reserve defense in case of war and that 0),U"JO.OJJ of freightage now paid to foreign shins may remain to the American shipbuilder, the American ship owner, the American seamen and the American mechanic. We lKlieve the liest interests of the laborer will be conserved bj- the continuance of Re publican supremacy in state and nation. We express our approval of the right of labor to organize as well as capital, and believe that aucii organization, properly aud lawfully con trolled, will accomplish better riiults for both the employe and employer. We recognize thst the perpetuity of our institutions de pends uijii giving labor the fullest and freest opportunity to better its condition bysecur ing rmpl'u men! tinder the moM favorable circumstances. We commend the wise, businesslike and courageous administration of our distin guished governor, William A. Stone. As chief executive ho has shown a disposition to servo the best interests of the whole people and to conduct his administration oh lines of com mon honesty and businesslike sagacity. Like an individual, a state must live withiu its income. An individual who pays out more money than he receives becomes insolvent, aud a state that adopts the same policy must sink in credit. We therefore uphold the gov ernor in his policy of reducing tho expendi tures of the states so that they shall not ex ceed our income. The largest support should be giveu to our charitable, eleemosynary, penal and ciiarita ble institutions, but appropriations should not be made, even for those worthy purposes, beyond the annual revenues of the state. If additional revenues are required, we favor the taxation of incorporated capital and or ganized trusts su that the public burdens may be more fully and equally distributed. We commend the good judgment of the Re publicans of Pennsylvania in their selection of representatives in both branches of the na tional congress. They felt and properly rep resent the great commercial, industrial aud business iuterests of our commonwealth. The Republican party owes a debt of grati tude to her senior United States senator, Matthew Stanley Quay, who, for more than a quarter of a century, has stood iu the fore front of the battle for Republican supremacy. Our state is entitled to full representation iii the United States senate, and we endorse the action of the governor in making his ap pointment to fill a vacancy caused by the fail ure of the last legislature to elect. Ve commend the faithful attention with which the public business entrusted to our junior senator. Boies Penrose, has been trans acted. As a member of the committee on commerce he has secured the appropriation of millions of dollars for the improvement of slack water navigation in Western Pennsylva nia and for a deep channel hi tho Delaware river. He has been assiduous in the perform ance of the many duties exacted from him as a representative of this great state and merits the approbation of his constituents. We favor an economical administration of state affairs and demand the prompt settle ment and collection of all claims and taxes due by individuals, companies and corpora tions. Wo also favor tne prouipt.'paymentof school warrants drawn upon the treasurer so that each district shall bo paid as soon as the ap propriation is needed and demand made for the payment thereof. AVe believe in reducing the expenses of the judi:iai, executive and legislative branches of the state government to tho minimum so that the public expenditures shall not exceed the annua! revenues. It is a source of grattflca- to recall that our state has never lost a dollar by a reason of its accounting officers and we usiM-eially cinuinend the business-like and effi cient administration of the retiring state treasurer, -Tames S. Beacom. We welcome, thrice welcome, within the borders of cur magnificent commonwealth. and to our empire city, unequaled in her hos pitality, the bravo soldiers, sailors and ma rines who fought the long and terrible strug gle for the preservation of our constitution, the supremacy of law and the union of our stan-s.
