THE ATHLETIC EXHIBITION At the Wigwam Last Night Was Very Interest ing—Lynch Won the Two Mile Walk. All whet attended the athletic exhibi tion last night at the wigwam enjoyed the features of the programme. The one mile walking race was won by John Russell. Time, 11 minutes. Dan O'Leary, the champion of America, was matched to walk against Lynch of Gate City on a two-mile course. Lynch won, covering the distance in 18 minutes and 20 seconds. O’Leary passed the post at 18:10. The audience then wanted the glove contest. Cries of "let us have some fun,” were heard from the 400 spectators. Denver Ed Smith stepped into the ring and announced that a prize fight would not be attempted. He said that the laws were against it, and the exhibition would be only a scientific bout for points. Chief of Police T. C. McDonald, Captain Weir and a full corps of police officers were present to preserve order. After his talk to the audience Denver Ed called for his opponents. They were Quinlan, the stock yard giant, Slattery and Eugene McElroy. It was a contest for points, and Denver Ed did all the pointing, so to speak, that Is, he pointed out to the audience what a clever boxer could do with a novice. McElroy looked light besides Smith, hut he did some pretty sparring and handled himself easily on his feet. Slattery tried a pivot swing at Smith’s ribs In the second round In his bout, and landed sharply. The next moment, how ever, he was picking himself up from the floor, where a jab In the heck sent him. Chief McDonald was in the ring imme diately and would have stopped the con test If the boxers and the audience had not assured him positively that the Inci dent was only a matter of chance. Both shook hands and proceeded with a real light show of how hard a man can hit if his opponent will permit. Altogether the audience was well pleased. Many had never seen anything approaching a ring fight. Something may 'be expected from this fighter, Denver Ed. He Is said to be the most vicious puncher that ever entered the ring. Perhaps that Is a fault that may cost him dearly in his go at Fitz simmons or Slavln. Sporting authorities claim that Sullivan's forcing lost the fight to Corbett. Denver Ed claims the champ ionship of America, and is anxious to fight any living man, at any time, in any place. , ______ LOOK all over town first, then come see goods and prices at E.

Only one monument to the Confederate dead has been erected north of Mason and Dixon's line and that is the Chicago monument, which was recently dedi cated. But New York will soon have a Confederate monument lhat will rival the one at Chicago. The Confederate Veter an camp of New York city determined at a recent meeting to secure a burial pla;e for the members of the camp and their families. The Mount Hope Cemetery as sociation made a gift of a handsome plot containing ilOOO square feet and located in the most desirable part of the ceme tery. Mr. Charles Broadway Rouss gave $5U0o toward the erection of the monu ment. The monument will be 56 feet high and will be the tallest. monument in any cemetery in the vicinity of New York. The shaft will weigh fifty-six tons. The pedestal will be nine feet high and somposed oft hree stones weighing fifty tons, making the total weight of the monument over 100 tons. The material will be of the best Vermont granite. It will be formally dedicated on next Dec w:d iiij> up onr recent licit your visit, to MORROW & % oration Day. Northern veterans of New York have already notified the camp of their desire to be present and assist in the ceremonies attending the dedication. It will be a reunion of the blue and the gray, as was the dedication of the Chi, cago monument. The Confederate Veteran camp of New1 York was organized in 1890 and was the first Confederate camp In the north. The. Chicago camp Is the only one organized since in the north. The organization of the New York camp was originated in a newspaper account of the death of a poor Confederate soldier in that city. The object of the camp, as stated In its con stitution, is to minister to the wants of the needy Confederate veterans, to per petuate the memories of fallen comrades and to cement the friendship between the two sections. The camp has a ban quet each year on Lee’s birthday, and recently waited on Mrs. Davis and Miss Winnie at their hotel. Mr. Charles Broadway Rouss is a mem ber of the New York camp and a wealthy auctioneer on Broadway. He is an en thusiastic lover of the south. At the re union in Houston last spring he proposed to give $100,000 toward the erection of a memorial building for the collection of relics of the Southern Confederacy. His liberal offer was accepted by the United Confederate Veterans and the building will be erected, probably in Montgomery. The call of Major-General Ferguson Is meeting with a hearty response.
