The war ha* naturally had a depressing
effect upon sports, and, while the men ac
tually engaged and their friends take their
accustomed amount of Interest ln the vari
ous sports, the public does not care much
who rides the fastest mile on a bicycle or
who wins the championship of the ring so
long as. there Is a chance of reading about
a meeting between Sampson* ships and
the Cape Verde fleet. There Is something
going on, however, ln nearly every line
of sports, but it is not surprising that they
fall to receive the ordinary amount of at
About the most sensational announce
ment Is that by Fltzslmmons In which
he states he will give Corbett "another
chance," or will attend to some of tho
ether ambitious heavy-weight*. Martin
Julian, however, appears to have lost his
cunning, for he chose the very worst pos
sible time ln which to get advertising, and
where the papers would, in times of peace,
have given the preliminaries of the fight
columns eaoh day, the original announce
ment received about half a column in the
dispatches. There has been considerable
doubt expressed by well-posted men over
, Corbett'* sincerity In wanting another gn
at Fltzslmmons, but his course In the pres
ent matter will prove whether he Is a fakir
or not. -
The victory of Joe Goddard over Maher
last week came like a thunderbolt out of a
clear sky. Practically everybody, and cer
tainly those who saw Goddard fight Jef
fries In the pavilion some months ago, re
garded Goddard as a "dead one," and when
he left here It was never supposed that
be would venture ln the ring again, and
least of all against Maher. To do the Irish
man justice, however, he had all the best
of the round up to the time he received
the knock-Out blow, which was, no doubt,
accidental, but, ln spite of this apparent
fact, Maher Is now looked upon as another
"has been." There Is something; peculiar
about the defeat of a prize fighter. No mat
ter how brought about, the public never
looks upon blm In the same light as before,
and that defeat will forever cling to Maher
like the brand on Cain. The chances are,
however, that It la not well to over
estimate Jeffries as the result of Ooddard'e
victory. It is true that he defeated God
dard, and the latter whipped Maher ln
short order, but It is the general opinion
that Goddard laid down to Jeffries in his
fight In this city. He certainly ran away
from him, and It was clearly evident that
he did not make any attempt to even stand
up and make any kind of a showing, let
alone trying to flght as "The Barrier
Champion" had always done before. He
probably saw a chance to make a piece
of "easy money," and so worked the Los
Angeles public, without showing that he
really could fight. Since his meeting with
Jeffries Goddard has been "touting" tbe
local man as the champion, but the chances
are that he is saying six words for him
self In every dosen of praise of Jeffries.
Naturally, he wants to "square" himself
with the representation that Jeffries Is the
greatest fighter that ever stepped Into a
ring. His "talk* is a trifle raw, however,
and Jeffries should not be regarded as so
vastly superior to Mahor on account cf
the rankest kind'of a chanoe knock-out by
Goddard, when he certainly Is not. Maher
snd Jeffries are reported to be matched for
the latter part of the month.
It Is said that Billy Delaney took hold
of big Jim,Jeffries In a fit ot pique, says a
Chicago paper. At the Carson flght with
Fltzslmmons, Jim Corbett, who had previ
ously always been advised In his lighting
corner by Delaney, chose to listen to Char
ley White of New Tork. This caused the
faithful Delaney to yearn for a new man
for the championship, and J. J. Jeffries,
who was at Carson aiding Corbett to pre
pare for Fltzslmmons, struck Delaney as
the rlghf man. Delaney has bad the,big
new one for a, year, and In that time has
seen.his name spread to the four corners as
a wonder .and a probable coming champion.
The fact that Eddie Sentry of Chicago
fought Solly Smith to a draw shows that
the pace Solly has been going has begun
to tell on him, Solly has gone to New
Tork ln search of a match.
Dal Hawkins and Spike Sullivan are
practically matched to meet soon In New

Hank Griffin, the colored heavy-weight,
who Is bu|lt on line* similar to those of
Fltzslmmons, disposed of Llge Robinson
ln easy style Friday night at the Manhat
tan club. Robinson does not appear to Be
able to take punishment, and as soon ns
Griffin got in a few good licks he simply
fluked. Robinson crouched helpless ln his
corner and exposed his body to his oppon
ent, without making the slightest attempt
to get away or protest. He acted like an
ostrich and covered his face with his arms,
under the apparent supposition that Griffin
would be merciful and not hit him. Banks
and Brown, the little colored bantams, al
ways put up a good exhibition and are
neat, clever, fighters.
Griffin challenged Bob Jones to a flght
and Jones accepted the detl. with the condi
tion that he would not flght for a purse
less than 1200. Griffin's manager offered
to guarantee 8200 to Jones, provided he de
, feated the lanky man, but, as there was a
string to this offer, It Is not probable that
Jones will accept It. Swlfty also challenged
Griffin to another flght, and this meeting
may bs arranged if the arrangements for
the match with Jones fall through.
Bob Thompson and Billy Lynch are
matohed to flght during the latter part ot
this month. Nothing much Is known of
Lynch here, but some of the sports are
claiming that he Is a sure winner and ha*
been disposing of the various boxers who
tackled him at Santa Monica.
The Chronicle has the following nasty
statement regarding Furman:
"William Furman, the lengthy cracka
jack from Southern California, who rode
the last relay for the Bay City Wheelmen,
Is getting a slight dose of 'cold feet' dur
ing his short sojourn In the north, and is
not nearly bo anxious to talk racing as he
was upon first arrival. After backing down
from propositions to race either Wing or
Downing, he entered into negotiations to
take on a race with Russ. The latter of
fered him any kind of an event. Furman
asked time to consider this, but at the ex
piration he failed to put ln an appearance
and Is reported to have returned south."
The chances are that the Chronicle
been Imposed upon and Is also actuated by
jealousy of the local crackajack. Furman
rode a splendid race and defeated some of
the best men ln the north, and to claim,
after his creditable showing, that he Is
afraid Is unfair and unsportsmanlike. Fur
man has no cause to fear the best of the
northern men, and the chances are, if a
race Is arranged, he will demonstrate to the
northern 1 part of the state what he has
already done ln the southern—that he Is one
of the fastest men ln California.

There was an interesting pigeon shoot at
the Los Angeles Gun club grounds yester
day afternoon. There was a high south
west breeze blowing straight from the sea
and a good many of the birds were poor
flyers. The first event of any Importance
was a ten-bird race, 15 entry, with six men
ln the pool. The score was as follows:

A couple of small side pools filled a very
successful day's sport, which would have
been much better attended had It not been
for the rain In the morning.
The rain kept people indoors yesterday,
although the afternoon was pleasant, but
there was only a fair crowd out at the
coursing at Agricultural park. Those who
did venture out saw very good sport, the
ground being soft and ln fine condition,
and some very good dogs had been en
There were two stakes—an eight-dog
crackajack and a 24-dog consolation. In
the former some of the best dogs on the
track appeared, and in the consolation the

As üßual, there was a kick on the decision
ln the Van Brulle-Oraser race, but to most
people It looked perfectly fair. E. H. Dal
ton, the owner of Van Brulle, Romeo anil
a few other dogs which have won first
money on several occasions, has become no
elated over this fact that he think* every
race must go accordingly. Consequently,
when Van Brulle met hie match ln Graser,
there was a good deal ot loud talking and
several threats were made. However, as
on previous occasion*, nothing reiulted but
talk. It Is very easy to make a mistake in
a decision from the grand stand, as one
dog may often seem to be ln the lead and
yet be off the line of the hare. It was ex
pected that the course between Oriental
and Breach of Promise would be the race
of the day, as both dogs are nearly always
winners. They had a good hare, but tho
course was a short one. Before the after
noon was over the Dal ton affair culminated
ln a riot, and the valiant Dal ton, jr., led a
band of about 100 men to mob the judge.
Mr. Bradberry, however, refused to ho
mobbed and would not run, which seemed
to disappoint the crowd, as It dispersed.

Notwithstanding that the close season
for shooting doves under the state law be
gins in the middle of February and lasts
till July 15th, the birds are now being hunt
ed. Several Individuals with guns were so
Impudent yesterday a* to shoot at big
flocks of them ln the rolling land near the
Los Angefte Gun club's grounds and within
a stone's throw of the city limits.
Shooters all over the state are taking
great Interest ln the approaching tourna
ment of the California Inanimate Target
association, which occurs Saturday and
Sunday, the 29th and 30th of this month.
There will be Individual and team events
to determine the championships of the
state. This city will probably Bend a team
north to compete, as the local men have
always been among the leader* at all the
various tournaments given by thl* associ
The state live-bird tournament will also
be held June 3d, 4th and sth, under the
auspices of the Olympic Gun club.
The Riverside Sportsmen's club will give
v blue-rock tournament at that place next
Saturday. There will be single and team
shooting, open to all.
A preliminary field day was held last Fri
day by the cadet* of the Lob Angeles Mil
itary academy. The events were 60. 100.
200 and 440 yard dashes, jumping, shot-put,
baseball throw and hurdle races for points.
The winners were Sergt. Nevlll Wither
spoon, first; Earl Sanford, aecond; Sergt.
Geo. Rice, third. The regular field day will
be held a week from next Saturday.

went Into the senate restaurant at Wash

"How d'ye do, Elliot?" said the vlco
"Fine; how are you, Gus?" replied Elliot
Danforth, chairman of the Democratic
state committee of New Tork. Mr. Dan
forth was at luncheon with Senator Mur
phy and other New York Democrats. How
did It come about that the Republican
vice president and the chairman of New
York's Bryanlsed Democratic state organ
ization were on such familiar terms? Why.
they were boys together, school com
panions and juvenile fishermen in old Mid
dleburg many years ago. When Mr. Ho
bart waa nominated by the Republican
national convention for vice president ut
St. Louis In 1896, Mr. Danforth, although
on the opposite aide of the political fence,
sent him a warm dispatch of congratula
tion. Then Mr. Danforth went to Chicago
and took part In the Bryan convention. Ho
returned to his home in Chenango county,
was elected chairman of the Democratic
state committee which was to carry on the
flght for Bryan and Bewail and Incidentally
Tom Watson, and presided at Bryan's
demonstration ln Madison-square garden,
when the Nebraskan first entered" tho
enemy's oountry." After that Danforth
buckled down to defeat McKinley and hi*
boyhood friend, Hobart, ln New York
state. When tt was all over Danforth sent
quickly his warmest congratulations to
Hobart—hi* old school fellow and Ashing
lad companion—and so Mr. Hobart and
Mr. Danforth were delighted to meet
again the other day ln the senate restaur
ant at Washington.—New York Sun.

The Ineffaceable Blot
Tbe promotion of Assistant Secretary
Day to his place ln the cabinet adds no
strength to the cabinet, and the malign In
fluence of Mark Hanna leaves its mark per
manently on this administration.—»««»Qn
The firat lord of the treaiury sat tn hla
private room in the house of commons.
He waa making notes for a speech. Every
now and then he referred to a blue book.
Once he took a copy of last year's Kan
sard down from a shelf; he wished to
contradict what he said then as little as
There was a knock at the door. A mes
senger entered, hsnded a letter to the
i minister and then prepared to withdraw.
The envelope was pink and emitted a
pleasant perfume. The first lord was
about to call the messenger back and
cross-examine him when the firßt whiff
of heliotrope made him hesitate. The
beckoning gesture was discreetly turned
Into a thoughtful tapping of the fore
head. When the door was shut the leader
of the opened the missive. His hand
shook slightly. It was anonymous and
■read as follows:
"Walk along the committee room cor
ridor from east to west during the dinner
The minister's first impulse was to
throw the note contemptuously into the
waste paper basket. But a sharp glance
told him that the handwriting was Indis
putably feminine. He frowned. Then he
smiled', and placing the scented missive
In his breast pocket, went on with his
"I wonder what's up," muttered the
messenger to himself, as he retraced hU
steps to the lobby. "That's the third of
them fellly doos I've delivered to the
treasury bench today. And there's more
of 'em about, if] I'm not mistaken."
An important debate on imperial policy
was Imminent. The opposition contem
plated drawing a definite statement of
tbe government's intentions from the re
sponsible ministers of the crown. Later
there would be a division, and an urgent
whip had been issued to secure a full
attendance. But members required no
such reminder. It was the beginning of
the session, and the prospect of any ex
citement was sufflclent'to draw the entire
ministerial support.
A little disappointment was felt on ac
count of the prospective absence of the
Nationalist members during a greater
portion of the, debate, fora,general meet
ing of the Irish party was to take place
at 8:30 ln committee room 15. But the
Liberals had mustered) In full force, and
II was generally felt that the encounter
would prove a lively one, In spite of sub
sequent empty benches.
The attack was lead by the leader of
the opposition at 7 oclock. It was a mas
terful piece of logic, and there was a uni
versal feeling among the rank and file
of the supporters of the government that
only one ot the ablest debaters ofthe
treasury bench would be capable of mak
ing an effective answer. The speech had
lasted for an hour, and the house ad
journed until 8:30 for dinner.
After the Interval members hurried
back to take their seats. All eyes were
fixed expectantly upon the front bench.
A couple or so of under-secretaries, the
junior lords, the secretaries of the treas
ury and admiralty and several Scotch
and Irish officials were in their places.
But no member of the cabinet had taken
his seat. There was an awkward pause.
It was Imperative that somebody should
be put Up to speak. One of the Junior
lords hurried oft to find the leader of th*
house. The financial secretary arose amid
derisive opposition cheers.
It wtrsj Impossible for him to attempt a
proper defense of the government policy.
The task must be left to the first lord,
who had undertaken to reply. The tac-'
tics of the unhappy secretary were to act
as stop-gap and gain time until his chiefs
return. Ten, twenty minutes passed in
this way. The minister's circumlocution
created great diversion on the opposite,
side of the house. But in half anhour he
had exhausted himself. He sat down and
was followed by one of the skilled bores
to whom he had sent a whispered mes
sage. In this manner the debate dragged
on. Messenger after messenger was
vainly dispatched in search of the lead
ers. No trace of them could be discov
ered. None of them had dined ln the re
freshment rooms, of the. house. As hour
after hour passed and the responsible
ministers, failed to put in an appearance,
the supporters of the government began
to murmur. Their position was becom
ing supremely ridiculous.
By 12 oclock the debate collapsed. A
division was challenged. The speaker,
rising ln the chair, put the question. Hi?
call to "order" was followed by the In
verting of the sand glass. The division
bells rang.
They were scarcely, audibly in tha com
mittee room corridor so great was the up
roar that proceeded from No. 15. A wait
er, recentl} 1 , appointed, passing down the
passage shortly before 8:80 had asked the
constable on duty ln the immediate vicin
ity what the matter was. i
The constable laughed.
"It's honly a meetin' of the HirlsW par
ty," he replied.
The waiter stared.
"Well, It's your business, not mine," he
said; "but I should ha' said there was a
murder goln' on in there."
The row continued without Intermis
sion until midnight. Even the policeman'
acknowledged afterward that he had
thought once or twice "they was a bit
nolser than usual."
But the ringing of the dlvlslontbell was
the signal for the most unearthly tumult.
The constable expected every moment to
ccc what was left of the Irishmen rush
out ln order to take part ln the division.
But the dojor remaotned shut. Only the
sound of a form being used as a batter-.
Ing ram gave him an Indication tha:
something was wrong. He ran to the
door and tried to open it. It was locked.
He rapped violently against the panels
and shouted "Division!" Above the din
rose the cry distinctly and clearly: "Let
us out!"
"Bless my soul! However did they get
locked in?" muttered the constable. He
shouted and waved to his colleague at the
head of the western staircase. The man
hurried to the spot.
"What's wrong?" he aaked.
"They can't get out," was the reply.
"Put your shoulder to It, mate."
They burst open the door.
The first lord ot the treasury, his face!
streaming with perspiration, holding a
broken chair leg in his clenched hand,
rushed out and disappeared ln the direc
tion of the house. He was followed by
several oolleagues, all of whom bore sim
ilar traces of exertion.
But they were too late .to vote. The
doors were locked and when the .figures
were read out a few minutes later the
government was announced to bej tn. a
minority. Many of the ministerialists,
disgusted with the conduct of their lead
ers in absenting themselves at a critical
moment, had voted against their party.
Nothing was ever said about the pink
billets or committee room 16. But some
of the Irish members wore perpetual
amllea for several day* after the- occur
rence. And one of them waa dlacovered
putting the missing key back In the lock.
The constable stationed In the corridor
told his colleagues privately that he had
seen several gentlemen pushed Into No.
16 by Irish membera; but he thought
they were only Joking together.
Anyhow, the matter waa hushed up and
Inquisitive questioners) were put off with
jocular replies. But no member of the
cabinet was observed to pass by commit
tee room 16 after that eventful night
without en escort, and bearers of pink
billets are threatened with Instant dis
missal. — Harold E. Oorst ln London

Spain's Soldiers and Ours
An Englishman, writing ln a London pa
per, says that physically the Yankee
"Tommy Atkins Is a fine fellow enough—
deep-chested, bull-throated and hard as
nails. Tou will never find ln the United
States regiments the underslsed weak
lings so common ln many armies. The rea
son is that the high rates of. pay attract
to the colors many more recruits than are
actually required, of whom, of course, only
the best are enlisted. The men are, almost
without exception, excellent shots. The
reason tor this Is not far to seek. Sta
tioned for the most part In a wild and un
settled country, rifle practice, confined
with us, so far as the Individual soldier Is
concerned, to a few weeks in each year,
Is with them unceasing. There are no
costly ranges to maintain, nor is tt neces
sary to erect butts. The target, a paper
one on a framework of Iron, Is set up out
side the fort stockade and the squads go
down and blase away their hundreds ot
rounds before breakfast. Besides that,
there la usually more or less game ln the
vicinity and hunting parties are con
stantly being organised."
A Havana correspondent says that, com
pared to our soldiers, either of the regular
army or of the National guard, the gun
carrier of Spain now in Havana is a lugu
brious and ludicrous object. His uniform,
consisting of an ill-fltttlng blouse and
trousers of blue striped cotton drill, is beet
described as a suit of pajamas. Add to the
blouse and trousers a coarse, wide
brimmed straw hat and flimsy canvas
shoes with hempen soles, and you have the
full dress of a Spanish soldier. Put a
rusty, rickety Mauser in his hands and
you have the same soldier on duty. He Is
hollow-chested, underslsed, sunken
cheeked, unshaven, blear-eyed and gener
ally slouchy and unkempt. In Havana he
Is omnipresent—lo,ooo strong. He lolls ln
the cafes, drinking sugar and water. He
hangs about doorways and iron-bound
windows, talking to senorltas. He loafs
on the street corners, glaring at passing
Americans. He swaggers along Obispo
street, the Broadway of Havana, and be
struts up and down the plasa as though
monarch of all he surveys. When an offi
cer passes he becomes as humble as Uriah
Heep. When an American passes he
straightens up and transforms his bearing
Into that ot a latter day Caesar.—New
York World.
Ingratitude in Ireland
Ingratitude is a thankless serpant, but
not a fangless one. Dispatches from Lon
don show that while a large number of peo
ple of the United Kingdom are in sympathy
with the United States In its war with
Spain, and while Scotland is practically
solid for America, Ireland, except ln the.
north is hostile to America. The north of
Ireland Is largely opposed to home rule
and really mblght be expected to have very
little sympathy for the United States, as tho
people of this nation Were an active and an
earnest, and a most influential element in
favor of such home rule. But the rest of
Ireland, for which the citizens of this Un
ion have done so much, have contributed
untold millions, and have brought a moral
pressure to bear that contributed largely to
win the political and material reforms for
which the people of Ireland battled so long
—the Irish of that portion of Ireland should
have let their right hands wither before
they would prove rattlesnakes to the peo
ple who had generously fed, clothed, and
battled for them.—Sacramento Bee.
They Believe in The Herald
The Los Angeles Herald is one of the
best papers that comes to our table. It Is
bold and Independent, and has a most ex
cellent telegraph service. It has an intel
ligent newsgatherer at Washington, who
sends the best dispatches relating to the
war. The people believe ln this paper, and
for two months they have crowded ln front
of its office and bulletin board so that It
has kept the police busy to keep the side
walk sufficiently clear for pedestrians. It
Is the worklngman's friend and ts not con
trolled by plutocracy. In our judgment,
It has no equal ln Southern California.—

The People Will Take Them
There ought to be a universal protest go
up now by the people of the United States
■against the Issue of "gold bonds." There
will be no necessity for bonds to be made
payable ln gold alone. This country, ln all
the past, had no trouble to sell her bonds
payable ln "coin," which Is either gold or
silver; and If the government will now
Issue bonds In small denominations—say
In $10, $20 and $60—bearing about 3 per cent
Interest, the people will take up $100,000,000
or more of them, and will freely cir
culate as money. Unless the Mark Han
nas, the Plerpont Morgans and the Gages
are closely watched they will saddle on the
people a colossal debt of gold bonds.—

Ex-Senators in the House
John J. Ingalls ts said to have declined
a nomination for the house of representa
tives on the ground that the house would
give no glory to a man who had served ln
the senate. Several men, however, won
new laurels ln the house after leaving the
senate. Clay served ln the senate before
he did ln the bouse, and he could have con
tinued ln the senate, but he accepted a
seat ln the popular chamber in preference.
Moreover, he became a far more potent
figure ln tne house than he had been ln tha
other body. He returned to the senate
afterward, but during his service in the
house, especially at the time of the war of
1812 and during the Missouri admission cop
test he was the most powerful personage ln
the country. John Qulncy Adams was not
cnly an ex-senator, an ex-diplomat of dis
tinction and a famous ex-secretary ol
state when he went to the house ot rep
resentatives in 1831, but he was also an
ex-presldent, yet he won more glory ln the
house than he did ln all his other stations.
In the house Mr. Ingalls might carve out
for himself a brilliant new career.—St.
Louis Globe-Democrat.

The London papers have been devoting
considerable space to the etymology of the
word larrikin, a popular London designa
tion' of a tough. An ex-convlct who was
transported to Van Dlemen's Land states
that "larrikin" ts a common gipsy word
which has crept.into the vocabulary of all
jailbirds, and means 'rogue"—applied ap
preciatively to a really deft and clever
| rogue. (
