may see that it is rather a harrowing
task to take the trip I took by the fact
that not over 10 per cent nf Brighton'?
biummer population never made the trip,
and what ls more, they express no anx

chasm, having on one Side a table land
over seven hundred feet above sea level,
from which a splendid panoramic view is
obtainable. On its. southern, side this
table land Is easy of access, but the.ap
proach from the north is barred by a
forbidding escarpment, and up to a short
time ago—that is a year—could only be
achieved in a roundabout though fairly
safe fashion.

The Champion's Coachman Has a Mo
ment's Triumph Over His Master
NEW YORK, Sept. 23.—According to
his own admission, "Bob" Fitzsimmons,
champion pugilist of the world, re
ceived a knock-down blow last Satur
day. "A harder blow than ever Cor
bett struck," to use his own words. But
the proud dignity of the red-haired
pugilist has been in no way impaired, as
he immediately "put out" his plucky
assailant, and for fully half an hour the
man who struck Fitzsimmons was dead
to the world.
There was no $15,000 purse at stake
when the champion gave the latest ex
hibition of his punching powers. The
trouble arose over a paltry sum, repre
senting precisely one-thousandth part
of the amount. Neither was the cham
pion's opponent a professional pugilist.
He was merely Patterson, the little
English coachman, of Mr. Robert Fitz
simmons of Rye, Westchester county,
New York.
Robert Beck of this city had been a
guest of Fitzsimmons, and wished to
catch the 12:25 train home. Patterson
was called upon to drive him. Mr.
Beck, however, missed his train, by
reduced to a very few mirvutese all the
Brighton visitors would take advantage
of the new route. So he gathered the re
mainder of his wits together, this genius,
and thought out a plan for a railway
of the most novel character. It was over
this railway that I took the trip spoken
of in the beginning of my story. And let
me confess right here—l nev*r want to
take such a trip again, nor anything
which approaches it
The new railroad extends directly
from the top of the table land to the plain
below, at a point about a quarter of a
mile from the -fillage of Poynings. It Is
only 840 feet long, but every one who
rides on It Is delighted that It Is no
longer. Double the distance traversed
under the same circumstances would
have made an Incurable lunatic of me.
Two cars are used for the service of as
cending this height, one going down
while the other goes up. The cars are
open, and are fitted with four sets of
steel jaw breaks, possessing, it is said,
sufficient grip to stop and hold the car
steady at any point on the line. Of
course, this assurance is delightful, but
if it should not happen that way there
would be absolutely no escape from a
death so dreadful that you do not care
to think about It on the trip—that is, if
you can help It. I couldn't.
Tou enter the car as I did at the foot
about a minute. He expressed a desire
to punch the coachman's head. Pat
terson Jumped from his seat and offered
the pugilist's guest an opportunity to
gratify his desires, and the two mixed
it up a bit, with honors about even, un
til "Bob" himself made them break
away. Then all three drove back to
the cottage.
Arrived there, Fitzsimmons expressed
his disapproval of the coachman's meth
ods, and tendered him his dismissal.
This was accepted with a stipulation
that half a month's wages due should be
paid. The champion declined, and a
war of words followed. Fitzsimmons
landed a heavy blow on the back of the
coachman's head. Patterson replied
with a whack on "Bob's" chest, which
sent the champion to his knees, and
which the Cornishman has since made
historical as a harder blow than any he
ever got from James J. Corbett. But
the coachman's triumph was hort lived
The next moment "Bob" landed on the
solar plexus, and Patterson lay uncon
scious for half an hour. The result of
these little episodes ln the life ot «

Fitsslmmons was arrested for assault
and was given a hearing last night.

No Room Here for Anarchists
There is a concerted movement
against the anarchists in Europe who
are carrying the doctrine of the incen
diary torch, the murderous bomb and
the assassin's knife into practice, and
warning comes from Paris that Louise
Michel and other anarchists are coming
here to make a speech-making tour for
the purpose of advancing the anarchist
propaganda. There are already enough,
and more than enough, of this class here
already. There ls not the slightest need
of Louise Michel and others of the kind.
We can have all the disorder we hanker
after without calling ln any more Euro
pean mischief-makers to furnish it.—
Clevevland Plain Dealer.
