A BRACE OF BANTAMS.
Featherweights Fight, But Not to a Finish. "ONE AFRAID, T'OTHER DAREN'T' Eighty Bounds Fought and the Gate Money Divided Between the Pugs. I Associated Tress Dispatches to the Herald. 1 Chicago, March 31. —The long-talked of fight between the feather-weights, Ike Weir, otherwise known as the Belfast Solder, and Frank Murphy, of England, for the championship of the world, took place at Koutts, Indiana, this morning, but resulted, as so many fights have done recently, in a most unsatisfactory manner, the referee, after the eightieth round, being obliged to declare the fight off for the day, and announced that it would have to be finished some time be fore Tuesday. It is extremely doubtful, however, if the men will come together again—certainly not within that time — and another draw will probably have to go on record. The fight was a most pe culiar one. For eighteen rounds it was aB scientific and hardly fought a battle as has ever been seen, but the other sixty-two rounds, save the sixty-sevenih and sixty-eighth, amounted to nothing. In not more than ten of them was a blow struck, and most of the time the men did not even put their hands up. The ex planation for this lies in the fact that, after ten or twelve rounds, the Spider's hands went back on him, and he could do nothing with them. Murphy, who proved himself to be most plucky, but a most wretched general, failed to get any advantage out of the predl a ment of Weir, who kept dancing just out of his reach. Another thing was that Murnhy was not in the best of condition, as shown by the great welts left from each blow. Tbe Spider proved himself much the cleverer of the two, and the way in which he sailed at Murphy during the first few rounds, smashing him first on one eye and then on the other, then on the nose, and twice knocking him down with a sounding crack on the neck, con vinced many that he could have won the fight had his hands held out. There were others, however, who were loud in their assertions that Murphy showed himself the better man of the two. He certainly proved himself one of the gamest men that ever entered a ring, and with his two eyes almost closed, and in spite of having been Bent to grass twice, he rushed his long-limbed antag onist all over the ring. This was in the early part cf the fight, however. During the rest of it neither seemed inclined to do much of anything, and the two men alternately chaffed each other, the spec tators occasionally varying the monotony of the proceedings by taking a hand in the talking-match and urging the fighters to give them their moneys worth. After round after round had been fought without a blow, Weir made a splendid rally. The 67th and 68th were as lively as the most blood thirsty could desire and Weir had almost had Murphy knocked out. The spurt was a short one, however, and the old tactics were again resumed under the instructions of their backers. When the spectators saw nothing could be expected they soon tired of the show and the postponement was really made at their demand. Weir's backer acted very square, and before the rally repeatedly urged the Spider to go in and fight, even if he got licked. Par son Davies' management of the affair was Excellent, and bfs arrangements were all carried out well. After the fight Weir showed but little punishment, though he said his ribs were frightfully sore and he thought his jaw was broken. Murphy was badly bunged up. His eyes were almost closed, and on his ribs was a huge lump. During the morning there were one or two encounters between sports and the natives of Koutts that served to enliven the proceedings. Near the end of tbe fight the owner of the hall declared be had not rented the premises for a week, and unless the fight was finished pretty soon he would have it stopped. Fuller details of the fight, by rounds, are as follows: The first rounds as above indicated were rattling good ones, the Spider pun ishing his man very badly. Iv the sixteenth and seventeenth rounds not a blow was struck. In tbe eighteenth round both men sparred very cautiously for an opening. Weir finally led but fell short. Murphy did the same thing, and as the round closed Weir got in a good one on Murphy's ribs. In the nineteenth round Murphy's eyes seemed almost shut, but he made a vicious effort. The round closed without any damage to either. In the twentieth round Weir led. In the twenty-first another clinch for the opening as the result of Murphy's lead. Weir got in a good one on the ribs, but at the end of the round tbe Spider seemed out of wind and a little sick at the stomach. In the twenty-second round Murphy opened with a rush and got in a good crack on the Spider's ribs, which were by this time considerably cut up. Weir tried a vicious upper cut, but fell short, and as the round closed Murphy gave him another good smash on the ribs. In the twenty-third round not a blow was struck. In the twenty-fourth round Murphy cornered Woir against the ropeß and got in another crack on the Spider's ribs. This was the only blow of the round. In the twenty-fifth round Weir led and the men clinched. After they broke away, Murphy, with a rush, knocked his antagonist against the ropes. The twenty-sixth was a walk around. The men stood with their hands down during the twenty-seventh, twenty eighth, twenty-ninth, thirtieth, thirty first and thirty-second rounds, not a blow being struck. In the thirty-third Murphy made a little rush, but no result fallowed. The Spider seemed to have recovered his wind and spirits and resumed the dancing tactics practiced early in the fight, but kept well away from Murphy. The next thirteen rounds were without result. The Spider's hands looked badly, and there was a great, big swelling in his right elbow. Shortly after this a queer-looking speci men worked his way through the crowd, and cried, "This fight is stopped!" Be fore he had time to say anything more he received a crack behind the ear that sent him over the chairs, and, with the aid of several more vicious blows, he reached the outer air in a very dazed condition. In the forty-sixth McAvoy, the Spider's backer, told his man fo stand up in the middle of the ring and fight. Weir eeemed reluctant to obey, and the same old story followed until the fifty-first, when Weir varied the monotony by get ting a good one on Murphy's eye. They soon clinched and the fifty-second, fifty third fifty-fourth, fifty-fifth, fifty-sixth and fifty-seventh rounds passed without THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: MONDAY MORNING. APRIL 1, 1889 I a blow being struck. When the ' fifty-eighth round was called and the men resumed their old tactics, many of ,ttie spectators left, and the backers and seconds seemed to have no more interest in the affair. In the fifty-ninth both men started out ferociously as if they meant to kill each other, but the old game was soon resumed and continued till the sixty-seventh, when the Spider made hia splendid rally with bang, crack, smash, and seemed to hit Murphy where he pleased. Towards the end be had the little Englishman a bit groggy, and Mc- Avoy yelled to the Spider to finish him, but Murphy seemed able to take care of himself and time was called. In the sixty-eighth Weir went at it again but was not able to do much damage, and this proved the last fighting round of the battle. The men simply stood up during the next twelve rounds and at the end of the eightieth, Billy Meyers announced the postponement. Later—lt is understood to-night that the match will not be fought again. Parson Davies said that, to have the men come together again, would be brutal, and that he is willingto divide the $1,500 purse equally between them. If this is done it would seem that the fighters each would claim one-half of the net gate re ceipts. The purse and the gate receipts are one and tbe same thing. The affair,there fore, was practically a contest for the gate receipts, and one explanation of the listlessness of the fighters during the last two-thirds of the affair, is that, by that time, they were tacitly agreed that it would be most agreeable to make a di vision, and not to injure future business by spoiling either man's reputation by a knock-out. A I.ochlnvar Arrested. Nkwakk, N. J., March3l. —Herbert E. Coddington, alias Herbert Parker, a Colorado cowboy, was arrested here last night on charges of larceny, arson and kidnapping. The dispatch on which he was arrested came from Trinidad, Colo., from which place he abducted a 16-year old girl. In order to secure her he set fire to her father's ranch and then fled to New Mexico, where he married her. They came to this city and stayed with Jarvis Ayers, a relative of the girl. Ac cused admits the charges except that of larceny. He says the girl was willing to go with him. He is held for requisition. A Proposition From Gould. New York, March 31.—At a meeting of the Central Labor Union a communica tion was read, purporting to come from Jay Gould through Washington Davis, the railroad contractor, stating that Gould was willing to hand over to the Union $11,000,000 in gold, with interest from 1889, if the Central Labor Union would be willing to adopt a plan for a co-operating industry proposed by Gould. The Secretary will wait upon Davis to morrow to see what the communication means. CHURCH SERVICES. Subjects Ulscuasedby tbe Preacbers Yesterday.

THE MONGOLS MAY RAISE CAIN But three Gunboats Cannot be Spared to Replace Those Lost in the Gale at Apia. [Associated Press Dispatcnes to the Herald I New York, March 31.— Rear-Admiral Shufeldt said on Sunday night to a Tribune reporter who called on him lor information as to what could be done by the vessels of that squadron to replace the loss at Apia, said: "When I left the China station, on January Oth, the Swatara had not yet joined the squadron. The Palos was at Tien-Tsein, her winter quarters. Taking into consideration the news that there is trouble between the Chinese and Euro peans, as shown by the outbreak at Chefoo, she is in the right place, being a roomy vessel, with small draft, which could easily get down the Peiho, a river requiring a vessel drawing not more than fourteen feet. With regard to the Swatara, Cmaha and Marion, I see no reason why they should not be sent at once to Samoa. American interests are small in China. Russell & Co., being really the only big American house in that country. There are cer tainly a few ship chandlers and the mis sionaries to be taken into consideration, and in my opinion the greatest danger is at Canton, where doubtless an English gunboat is stationed which would give all necessary aid, for though I am against foreign aid, I must say that the English navy always is most kindly and considerate with the American nation. "It is a great mistake to suppose that the present Chinese outburst against Europeans is owing to America having forbidden the importation of Chinese la borers. Australia and the Phil lipine Islands have done the same thing. The ordinary China man makes due discrimination be tween the several "barbarian nations." They are all the outcasts of the world to him, and simply come to China as her servants. The mandarins curb the dor mant but ever present desire of the populace to exterminate the in truder. The few ships America has in the China seas would be of little or no use except to take off refugees in case of a general rising of people. The three ships named, there fore, could at onca proceed to Samoa and render such relief as is wanted to replace the awful loss which I heard this morn ing. Baseball. San Francisco, March 31.!— At the Haight-street grounds to-day, Oakland 17, Sacramento 4. Stockton, March 31. —The 'Stocktons defeated the San Franciscos this after noon in a fully played game. Stockton made one in the first inning and one earned in the sixth. San Francisco got an unearned run in the seventh, through the error of Bweeney in failing to hold a ball thrown by Hunolt. The feature of the game was the battery work of Hunolt and Depanger, and the heavy hitting of the Stocktons. Meegan was hammered for eleven hits with a total of sixteen bases. Stickney led In the Black work with a single and a two-bagger. The San Franciscos seemed unable to hit Hunolt safely, and got only five base hits. De pan ger's throwing to bases was superb, and not a base was stolen on him. San Francisco, March 31.—The Sacra mento baseball team made its first ap pearance at the Haight-street grounds to-day, and made a very poor showing, as. thß score of 4 to 17 indicates. A Brilliant Meteor. Portland, Ore., March 31.—Shortly after 9 o'clock to-night the heavens were lit up by one of the most brilliant mete ors ever seen in this city. The meteor was first Been at a point about 20 degrees southeast of the zenith, and, passing in a northeasterly direction, it lost itself when reaching a point 10 degrees from the horizon. It was visible for about fifteen seconds. While moving, myriads of stars were whirled off like rockets, making most beautiful celestial fire works. Its brilliancy was so intense that shadows were cast within twenty feet of the electric lights. A Veteran Laid to Rest. San Francisco, March 31.—The fu neral of Major Walter H. Holmea took place this afternoon from the Congrega tional Church. The interment was in Laurel Hill Cemetery. A large concourse of people followed the remains to the grave. Deceased was a veteran of the late war. In 1885 he was elected Junior Vice Commander of the Grand Army of the Republic at Portland, Me. He other wise had been very prominent in Grand Army and National Guard circles. Sam Jones I.caves 'Frisco. San Fbancisco, March 31.—Rev. Sam Jones closed his revival services in this city to-night. The pastors of different denominations who have united with him in the services, to-day say his work has been very successful. Successful Safe-mowing. Santa Cruz, March 31.—Burglars, last evening, blew open the safe at the railroad depot at Aptos with powder fuse. Thov secured $200. MISS AUSTIN CREMATED. Tbe Career of a Noted Woman In This State. Miss M. F. Austin, whose remains were incinerated at the Rosedale Crema tory yesterday morning, was a noted woman, and had made her name famous throughout California, as the first of her sex to demonstrate the capability of women to achieve fortune and indepen dence in a new and special field of indus try. She was not only tbe pioneer grower of raisins in Fresno county, but she es tablished a reputation as the producer of some of the best raisins overgrown in the United States. She was a native of Nantucket, Mass. She came to the Pacific Coast some years ago, and secured employment as a public school teacher in San Francisco, and soon became prominent in educational circles. As Associate Editor of the California Teaclwr, her contributions upon educa tional topics challenged much attention. Failing health compelled her to relin quish her chosen profession, and in 1875 she bought a lot in the Central California Colony, Fresno county, where in the fol lowing year Miss Austin planted her first raisin vines. She concentrated the facul ties of a brilliant mind upon the process of raisin-making, and after a series of careful experiments, wso the first to dem onstrate the adaptabiblity of the climate and soil of Fresno's irrigated land to tbe production of this choice fruit. Her charming home, Hedge Row Vineyard, is one of the most picturesque places in the county, and is regarded to-day as the model vineyard of Southern Cali fornia. About four years ago she was married to a Dr. Blatchley, but obtained a divorce a few months later, resuming her maiden name. In 1886 she was a candidate for County Superintendent of Public Instruction iv Fresno county on the Republican ticket, but was defeated at the polls. The immediate cause of Miss Austin's death was disease of the liver. She was always feeble, but she had extraordinary will power. She was aged 52 years and 10 months at the time of her death, which occurred in San Francisco. THE SEMI-TROPICS. How march Passed Out In a Blaze of Sunshine. Yesterday a Hebald reporter took a trip on the Banta Fe route to San Ber nardino. It was as we are all aware the last day of March, a date when in most latitudes Winter is found lingering in the lap of Spring. But in this section there is no suspicion of Winter even in Jan uary,and yesterday was very like a perfect June day along the Atlantic seaboard. The distance passed over is about sixty miles. The road lies close to the base of the mountains most of the way. No in telligent beholder can pass over this stretch of country on such a day and for a moment afterward doubt as to the great future of the semi-tropics. The valley, surveyed from the car windows varies in breadth of from ten to fifty miles in extent. It is at all points, without any exception, the most productive territory on the footstool. All along the road the natural grasses are a foot high. The mesas are clad in flowers of all the tints of the rainbow. The blue grass flowers, lilies really they are, the Indian pink or Queen of the Meadow, babyeyes, or the memophela in count less forms and hues, the California poppy, the wild heliotrope and many other fair forms and exquisite hues daz zle while they delight the sense of sight. The barley in some places is coming into head, and in all the fields it is vigorous and promising. Tbe apricot, peacb, pear and cherry trees are in full bloom. The sunny slope along the foothill with its friable, warm soil, disintegrated granite, made rich to a generous extent by decayed vegetable matter, is tbe ideal home of all the fruits. It is most grati fying to see the number cf new orange trees being set out. The plants look most healthy and show no sign of the scale pest outside of a few locali ties. All the new towns are growing more slowly than during the boom, but certainly as rapidly as can be ex pected in the long run. The latest one started is Rialto, and it is the nearest one to San Bernardino. Already there is a good showing made on the side of tbe mesa. A church, a hotel, a tine brick block or two, many snug cottages, a la'ge number of new fruit orchards set out, all bespeak steady progress in spite of quiet times. Here at the mouth of Lytle creek is a large body of most excellent fruit land. Warm, generous, easily worked with an absolute abundance of water, brought down with a pressure of any desired head. Some time ago it waß reported that 31,000 young orange trees were to be set this season at Rialto. The report came in such a shape that the impression was conveyed that a single interest was to put in so large an orchard. Then one re calls the fact that Sunny Slope, in its palmiest days, tinder L, J. Rose's own supervision, has only 6,000 orange trees on it, the mag nitude of the undertaking referred to will be appreciated. It was gratifying to learn that at least forty persons are interested in the planting of these trees at Rialto. A man can take care of 500 to 1,000 trees, but no man can take suc cessful care of 10,000 trees. San Bernardino wears all the insigni i of prosperity and progress. The floe streets are well paved and have good sidewalks. There are solid and artisti cally constructed blocks aligning these streets. Fine hotels, fine churches and schools all bespeak a pros perous, intelligent and progressive peo ple. San Bernardino has an excellent street-car service, and she has several tine motor roads. One runs out to Har lem Springs, and is to be extended to Ariowhead Springs and thence across the mountains. Another goes to River- Bide and South Riverside. These all bring business to the metropolis of the eastern end of the great semi-tropic val ley aud build up its industries, while they develop those of the country through which they pass. Fruit-tiro wers' Convention. The eleventh session of the California State Fruit-Growers' Convention will convene at National City, San Diego county, on Tuesday the 16th instant.and will continue in session four days. It will be held under the auspices of the State Board of Horticulture and fruit growers, shippers, packers, nursery men and others interested in horticulture and kindred pursuits are wanted to be pres ent. All persons having new fruits, and inventions of value to horticulture are wanted to exhibit them at the meeting. The Chamber of Commerce of San Diego and the Ban Diego County Horticultural Society have arranged various excui sions to carry all visitors over the motor roads to the Mexican boundary, to Oneonta, Otay and to the grand Sweet water Dam and Lake; also around the bay of San Diego on the Belt Line Rail road to the Coronado Hotel and other points of interest. Ho I ired a Salute. According to announcement, the cars on the electric road commenced running again yesterday, to the great joy of the inhabitants aloDg the route. Out at the end of the tracks, where the inhabitants have been cut off from rail communica tion with the heart of the city for some weeks past, they expressed their joy openly, one individual going so far as to give a salute of one gun. A policeman happened to hear the report and, rushing to tbe scene, promptly arrested the cele brator, changing his joy to grief in the course of a very few seconds. Subse quent explanations resulted, however, in tbe release of the breaker of the city's ordinances. A New "pera. Miss E. E. Steiner, who has charge of the musical department of the Conreid Opera Company, is about to produce a comic two-act opera, Heurette. It will probably be put on in one of the Atlantic cities during the coming season, and will be brought to the Pacific Coast later on. Heurette has been translated from the French, and is said to be a very spark ling, witty little piece. Miss Steiner has composed the music, and has introduced some very striking airs. She is the com poser of the song, "I'm So Cute." sung by Miss Delia Fox in the King's Fool. ANOTHER NEW ENTERPRISE. Prcparluß to Hske Plaster of Paris aud fertilizers. One by one the hitherto neglected resources of this region are being brought to light and developed. The existence of gypsum in this locality has long been known, but no one knew enough of the value of the mineral, or of the mode of preparing it for the market, to develop the deposits and derive any benefit from t'tem. So tho vast beds of gypsum lay undisturbed until some one with knowl edge of their value should come along and make use of them for the good of himself and of the community. C B. Hewitt, of the Southern Cali fornia Water and Sewer Pipe Company, had the matter called to his attention, and having some practical knowledge of the manufacture of phosphates and plaster, he looked up the deposit, and, being favorably impressed with the ap pearance of the raw material, bad sam ples sent to Syracuse, N. V., for analysis, with very satisfactory results. The sam ple submitted as a test with a view of as certaining its value for a fertilizer showed thirty-eight per cent, phosphate, thirty two per cent gypsum, and the rest lime md oh r substances. the gypsum that will be used for the manufacture of plaster of Paris is nearly pure. What cannot be used for plaster can be profitably worked up into a fertil izer. The pyp urn 'when burned and made into piaster will set in five minutes. Mr. Hewitt says that he can make an article superior to the "Golden Gate" brand. and he thinks it will equal the New York product. The Pipe Company has purchased this ledge, which is about five miles from town in the Temescal mountains, and will manufacture it at their works here. They are making a road to the ledge and will very soon be able to get to it with teams. As it is all down hill from the gypsum deposits, very heavy loads can be hauled and the expense of delivering it at the factory will be light. For the present, and until their product is intro duced, the company will manufacture the plaster and phosphates at the pipe works, but it will probably be necessary soon to put up works devoted to this branch of their business alone. The fertilizer can be delivered at Riv erside and other local points for about ! $18 per ton, which is about half as much as is asked for a similar article manu factured in Los Angeles. Mr. Hewitt informs us that at a recent stockholder's meeting it was voted to change the name of the Pacific Clay Manufacturing Company, which will be done as soon as the necessary legal steps can be taken. It was also decided to in crease the capital stock to $250,000, $130, 000 of which is paid up. The affairs of the company are in a flourishing condi tion. —[South Riverside Bee. The Library Directors. The Board of Directors of the Los An geles Public Library will meet this morning at 9 o'clock', at the office of Mr. G. A. Dobinson, No. 134 West Second street. It is probable that a selection of Librarian and assistant will be made. There are about forty applications for the various positions within the gift of this Board, which announced, at its first meeting, that it desired, for the benefit of the city and the Library, to secure the services of only those who were best fitted for the positions. During the coming summer the Library is to be moved into the new City Hall, and a change in the system is contemplated at that time at the furthest. Baldwin Retires. It is authentically stated in sporting circles that "Lucky" Baldwin will re tire from the turf at the end of this year's season, although he will still con tinue in the breeding and sale of thor oughbreds. Mr. Baldwin's career on the turf has been a remarkably success ful one, as the Santa Anita string has three times won the America Derby at Chicago, the lucky horses being Volante, Silver Cloud and Norfolk. The reason given for Mr. Baldwin's retiretaent is that he has certain business enterprises that will require his attention for many years to come, and he is therefore com pelled to abandon racing. The State Heform School. On Wednesday or Thursday of this week, the committee appointed to select a site for the State Keform School will reach this city, and will inspect the sites offered in this vicinity. Those who have propositions to submit are requested to forward them to Hervey Lindley. at No. 75 N. Spring street, before Wednesday, and those who have sites they desire to show the committee should be at Mr. Lindley's office when the Commission arrives. It is stated that not less than 40 acres will be needed nor more than 160 acres, and it should be in a con venient locality. The New states and silver Coinage Aside from the fact of justice in ad mitting the four new States to the Union, there is one other fact, which Bhould cause the friends of silver everywhere to rejoice, and that is, it will give the bi metallists a majority in both houses of Congress. This is something to be de voutly thanitful for. Upon whatever questions the political parties of these great States may divide, there is no di vision of opinion in the so-called silver States upon the question of the free and unlimited coinage of silver; and no man from these States could be elected to either hou?e of Congress, by either party, who would dare to oppose restoring sil ver to its ancient and honored place be side gold. This may be an unwelcome fact for the "Gold Bugs" of the East, but it is a fact, nevertheless, and they will have to abide by it. Year by year the great West is asserting her rights more and more, and as tbe center of population continues to travel westw-rd, that great section of our country will become more and more prominent in her influence upon all national affairs. It is time this fact was more fully recognized, and President Harrison will prove himself a wise man if ho lißtens to his western and not to his eastern advisers upoa the subject of finance. Wall street has all too long ruled the finances of the nation, and ow ing to her advice we are staggering un der one-half the great war debt, created a quarter of a centuary ago; while the losses entailed upon our farmers and cotton growers by the bad policy of Wall street, would have paid the entire war debt several times over. Let the new administrations cut loose from the tradi tions of the past, nnd set the mints to coining every dollar of gold and silver that we produce. This, put into the channels of trade, will give to the nation great prosperity, and tothe people a lontr sought for relief. All hail, then, to Washington, Montana and the Dakotas, who bear upon their banners the legend —Gold and silver for all.—[The Silver Dollar.
