tb e hampion featherweight of the worll,
„ n another victory to-night at Union,
y a rk Hall, this city, by defeating Tora
jjjv Connelly. ex-champion amateur
featherweight of America, in the fourth
rcur.d.
It was the most disappointing fight that
ba s taken place in Boston for years. Dix
tn learly showed his superiority over
Connelly while the fight lasted.
In the fourth round both men clinched
gI iJ Connelly suddenly went to the floor,
apparently knocked out, but not from a
blow. He lay there until the referee had
counted nine seconds, when his trainor
entered the ring and picked him up. Con
nelly was as fresh as when he entered the
ring As soon as Rereree •‘Bill" Dally
announced Dixon as the winner Connellv
aproaehed the ropes unassisted, and said:
•1 am not licked and will fight Dixon any
time.’’
From appearances it was clear to the
spectators that he did not care to go on
with the tight and laid down to avoid be
ing knocked out.
During the first round Dixon kept punch
ing his opponent in the ribs and stomach,
and rushed matters generally. .Connelly
got in but one blow on Dixon's face.
In the second and third rounds Dixon
resorted to the same tactics, following his
man about the ring and punching him
when and where he pleased.
Connelly got in a left hand upper cut
and a right swing on the Jaw in the third
round. At the close of both of these
rounds Connelly sought to avoid Dixon's
rushes by running about the ring.
in the fourth round the men were fight
ing about one minute when they clinched
an l Connelly fell, apparently knocked out.
Dixon was given the decision.
ALABAMA’S MIMS RIOT.
Ouly One Mnn Killed and Only Two
Other* Wounded.
rirmlngham, Ala., July 31.—N0 further
trouble has occurred at Brookside since
last night. The report is sent out by
special correspondents were greatly ex
aggerated. Only one man was killed, and
So far as known two others were shot
in the legs. It was no race war, but
u battle between officers and some negro
tenants whom the Sloss Iron and Steel
Company had notified to vacate. The
ottleers had gone there to serve notice
on them, when the negroes fired upon
them. Deputy Sheriff Wood was killed,
but If any others were killed their bodies
have not been found, and nothing is
known of it by the officers.
An Age-Ilerald reporter spent the night
at the scene of the fight and heard but
little talk of a race war, though there
was considerable Indignation expressed
towards the negroes engaged in the
shooting.
About a dozen negroes who are sup
pose to have been engaged In the fight
have been arrested and are now in Jail.
OKLAHOMA'S DIVORCE LAWS.
A Decision Which Knocks Out a
Large Number of Decrees.
Guthrie, Ok., July 31.—Following the de
cisions that probate Judges have no right
K> grant divorces in Oklahoma since Aug.
13, 1593, the supreme court to-day decided
that even before that time, their Jurisdic
tion was confined to persons who had been
residents of the territory two years or
mure, and that all divorces granted by
them to persons on ninety days residence
■ aid null and void, and subsequent mar-
I nagf-s bigamous. As al outsiders eom-
I :r.g u. re for divorces took advantage of the
■ ninety days' residence clause, this decis-
I. uvalidates between 3tM and DO divorces
■ granted to eastern people, in addition to
■ ■:.TO or 800 rendered invalid by tile de
flation of last Saturday.

St. Louis, Mo., July 31.—Louis C. Nel
son, president of the St. Louis National
Hank, has announced himself as an ad
vocate of the free and unlimited coinage
of silver at 1G to 1, and has beep chosen
as a delegate from St. Louis county to the
Herds Springs convention.
There is no reason,’ 1 said Mr. Nelson,
*hy a bank president should not be a
friend of free coinage. A silver dollar is
I as much a unit of value as a gold dollar.
I The former is the Alpha and Omega of
I cur money. The bankers who believe in
I diver are those who do not borrow

Mobile. Ala,. July 31.—There was a very
small crowd out,-this evening to witnejs
the Nashville team give Mobile the sev
erest drubbing that she has ever bad.
The visitors got on to Hahn in the third

of ball, the total being 16. Only eight
innings were played on account of dark

first inning and lit onto Dan McFarland
at every chance and when Evansvii’e
went to the bat in the seventh inning
with one out and the score 11 to 3 against
them, it looked like a lead pipe cinch for
the locals, but Zimmerman missed a
chance for a double play and they struck
such a batting streak that when the

port making but one error. Norton for
Atlanta was hit hard and often, and his

AM AGED FATHER’S JOKE.
He Gave Out a Bogus Notice of His
Son’s Marriage.
Waycross, Ga., July 31.—Yesterday
evening the Evening Herald printed a
long and complimentary notice to the
effect that Charles Hohensteln of Way
cross would wed Miss Jennie Matilda
Broadway of Savannah t’hls morning in
Savannah. Every one who read the no
tice believed that it was true, and many
people knew that Mr. Hohenstein was In
Savannah. However, it seems that the
article was a "fake." Mr. Hohenstein re
turned last night from Savannah and he
was the recipient of many congratulations
from his friends. He expressed surprise
and appeared to be ignorant of what was
meant by the congratulations. He was
shown tine article In the Herald, and Ills
discomfiture was great. Mr. Hohenstein
went to the editor of -the Herald and
asked for an explanation. The Herald re
ferred him to hie father, D. Hotien
stein, as the author of the
story. His father was seen by
the Morning News correspondent to-day.
Mr. L. Hohenstein is very old, nearly SO,
anl he seemed to be enjoying the Joke
he had played on his son. From what
his son says, Miss Jennie Matilda Broad
way is a fictitious name. Old Mr. Ho
henstein has had many good laughs at
the expense of his son.
A heavy rain fell here this afternoon,
and lightning struck several trees near
the city.
An excursion to Atlanta will he run
by the Georgia Southern and Florida rail
road from Florida and all stations on Aug.
19, and many people from all along the
line of the Savannah, Florida and West
ern and Brunswick and Western railways
will go on the trip.
PLANT SYSTEM ENGINEERS.
Their Contract AVlth the Company
Expires To-day.
Wayeross, Ga., Julj* 31.—This is the last
day of the gontract between the engi
neers of the Plant system and the man
agement, and to-morrow will bring no
change in tire situation, so far as can be
learned. The engineers have not given
publicity to anything that has been said
or done officially regarding the progress
made in their efforts to secure anew con
tract. The railway av.thoritics here had
heard nothing from the engineers regard
ing the matter up to last Saturday, and
while no inquiry has been made this
week, it is hardly probable that they have
yet heard from the engineers. The en
gineers will not talk on tne subject. They
have had meetings several times lately,
but that is all that has been done so
far as is known. The Plant system will,
no doubt, be willing to offer the engineers
a satisfactory contract, and this belief
has been expressed by some of the en
gineers.
OUTRAGED AND THEN KILLED.

Omaha, Neb., July 31.—Last night Dr.
s. J. Smithell, aged 43 years, wife of a
prominent farmer living sixteen miles
west of this city, was criminally assault
ed and murdered during the absence of
her husband. Her body was found in a
pasture near the house yesterday morning
and bruises on her body showed that 3he
had made a desperate fight for her Ufa
and honor. A negro named Watkins has
been arrested on suspicion and the evi
dence is so strong against him that he
will probably be lynched.

of the alleged seizure of the little island
of Trinidad by Great Britain, only through
newspaper reports. He had no ofticlal
knowledge of the incident whatever. He

HOW CHEWING Gl'M IS MADE.
An Interesting Expedition to a Fac
tory That Turns Out Sweetened
"Chicle.”
From the St. Louis Republic.
The manufacture of chewing gum, which
until the last few months was exclusive
ly an American industry, is decidedly of
more importance than the average and
casual buyer of the little packages of
glutinous substances imagines.
There are twenty-five large chewing gum
factories in the United States—to say
nothing of the smaller ones—each employ
ing no less than 300 people, the greater
number being women, making the total
of all engaged directly in the factories
in thts work 7,M0. But these figures do
not by any moans cover the entire num
ber of people in the United States that
are engaged in this business, for, accord
ing to even a rough estimate, there are
25,000 or 35,000 people earning a liveli
hood in one way or another with their
respective connections with the making,
selling and advertising cf chewing gum.
Though the manufacture of the chewing
gum originated in America, and has re
mained a distinctly' American industry for
twenty years, its fame has spread abroad,
and last year no less than $1,000,000 worth
of different varieties of chewing gum was
exported. Now chewing gum has been
declared "not a patent medicine" on the
other side of the Atlantic, and in. future
both England and Germany will make ana
sell at least a portion of the gum that is
used in those countries.
The habit of chewing gum has become
widespread in America within compara
tively the past few years. Until old Mr.
Adams—the father and founder of the
Adams Chewing Gum Company of New
York—twenty years or so ago discovered
that a Mexican tree, closely allied to the
India-rubber tree, was capable of pro
ducing a gum that wms most satisfactory
to chew, nothing in this line was known
or thought of but spruce gum.
This tree was first imported in 18G7, with
a view to Its employment in India-rubber
manufacture, but since the making of
chewing gum has become such an im
portant and wealth-yielding industry it
has an enormous value for that reason.
The gum from this tree is called "chicle,”
and from it the greater part of all the
chewing gum in America is made. The
care and propagation of the gum-pro
ducing tree is now also an Important
matter. Most of these trees grow in Mex
ico, Tuxpan being one of the principal
place* where their cultivation is car
ried on extensively, and from which dis
trict the greatest amount of “chicle” Is
obtained.
It may afford a certain amount of com
fort, and certainly satisfaction, to those
addicted to the habit of chewing gum,
and who find pleasure ln it, to know that
in spite of the rather horrifying stories
told of all the Impure things that chew
ing gum contains, in reality it comprises
but three ingredients: The chicle, or sap
of the Mexican tree, sugar and flavoring
extract.
Chewing gum in its crude state appears
something like great, rough stones.
These lumps arc of a light, brownish
color, and one can easily bite or break
off pieces which, when newed, form the
same substance as the finished chewing
gum, only minus the flavoring. This
shows that it is not dependent upon any
thing but Its own original quality to sus
tain it in Its proper consistency.
The making of the rough and lumpy
gum into the neat little squares and strips
that one can buy at almost every street
corner or store is simple enough, as far
as the main points are concerned, but
interesting.
First the chicle is ground into powder
and put into porcelain kettles, holding 18
gallons each, and boiled Tor three hours
over a slow fire of coke, a syrup of white
powder as soon as if is put on the fire.
All the kettles used ln the twenty-five
factories before alluded to have n capacity
of not less than eighteen gallons, and
eighteen of such kettlefuls are turned out
every day, thus making a dally output of
324 gallons apiece, or the total number of
gallons for the tweaty-five factories not
less than 8.100. This amounts to almost
1,000,000 gallons a year, which, when re
duced to its marketable shape and size,
forms an enormous amount of goods to
handle, and it seems almost incredible
that ready sale is found for It all, bnt
such is the case.
When the toiling mass has reached the
sugar and water being mixed with the
proper consistency it Is poured from the
great kettle* on to long, white marble
slabs, where, before it cools. It Is rolled
into the desired final thickness by enor
mously heavy steel rollers, manipulated
by steam. Shari/ knives, also governed
by steam or other motive power, cut the
flat sheet of gum Into uniform squares,
circles or strips, as the case may be.
After the guru is thoroughly ooolud— lt
is never wrapped until th day after It is
made—it Is turned over to a number of
young women, who, with deft fingers, put
on the little thin paper wrappers and nar
row little bright ribbons that tie into pack
ages the different fruit-flavored confec
tions for chewing that the enterprising
manufacturer turn out.
It requires men for the cooking and other
wise preparing of the gum, but women arc
always employed to puck It. It Is a very
cleanly and really dainty and feminine oc
cupation.
In the large factories a hundred or more
girls may be seen seated at long tables,
dressed neatly, and even becomingly, and
when work Is done In the evening their
white aprons are almost as fresh as
when donned In the morning, as there Is
nothing about the work to soil either
their clothes or hands! A vory munificent
salary cannot be earned through wrapping
gum, though it pays equally as well as
many another line of work that Is more
laborious and all together unpleasant. A
girl can earn at wrapping from $4 to $9
a week, according to the rapidity with
which she works. Forewomen of estab
lishments employing a hundred girls or
more are generally paid salaries of sl2 per
week. There are generally two or three
forewomen for as large a number
os this.
Mr. George H. Berry Of this city, the
largest chewing gum manufacturer west
of the Mississippi, in talking lately of this
branch of Fnited States Industry, said:
"It has grown amazingly In the last fif
teen years, and surprisingly. It is an ex
pensive business to establish and carry on,
or 1 think it would be even more engaged
ln than It Is now. All the materials used
In chewing gum are expensive, and there
are a thousand and one things besides its
simple cooking, rolling and wrapping to
be considered.”
In speaking of the heathful or hurtful
qualities of chewing gum, Mr. Berry said:
"It is quite conclusive, to me at least,
that the gum we manufacture Is as health
ful as we claim It to be, when I look at
those whom I have employed for years
who chew it constantly, there seems to
be something about the gum that makes
it healthful to handle. I have noticed
girls who have come here pale and thin
from shops and binderies soon grow well
and rosy. If it is good for them, I do not
see why It would not be good for any one
else, and as all the Ingredients are noth
ing but the purest, 1 see no reason why
people should discuss Its injurious quali
ties.”
Since 1882 Mr. Berry has been a maker of
chewing gum, and doubtless there Is many
an American, man as well a* maiden, that
by this time feels like rising up,and call
ing him blessed.
CHARLES B. ROFSB.
The Fnmons rx-Conlrilernte Million
aire In Losing His Eyesight,
The confederate memorial fund received
a few days ago the sun! of *IOO,OOO from
Charles Broadway Rouss, whose large
business house it as No. 551 Broadway
and his home at No. G 32 Fifth avenue,
says the New York Tribune. The object
of this fund Is to collect all confederate
relics of the war, and ln this Mr. Rouss Is ;
most Interested. He served throughout
the war as a confederate private soldier.
Mr. Rouss has had many ups and downs
in life, but his Indefatigable energy and j
pluck have to-day made him one of the
wealthy merchants of New York. But
after all his years of toll—he is 59 years
old now—has come a calamity that every
one of his friends, and he has a hot of
them, moat sincerely deplores. It Is feared j
that he will become totally blind coon.
The report that he wax so already is
false. A Tribune reporter went to the
Broadway store yesterday afternoon, and j
M. 8. Macon of the firm of Knox A Ma- j
con, lawyers, of No. 720 Broadway, Mr. I
LAST MONTH! LAST CHANCE!
m LARGEST REDUCTIONS!
In order to continue our grand REMOVAL SALE
we will otter from this day, and during this month, a
discount of
25c Per Cent, for Cash,
if charged IS per cent., and 10 per cent, if paid by the
15 th of the month following, embracing our entire stock
of Men’s, Boys’ and Children’s
Clothing, Furnishing Goods and Underwear.
Also a big lot of Men’s and Boys’ Clothing on
our bargain counters at ONE-HALF PRICE.
STRAW HATS ONE-HALFPRICE
Such a chance to get first-class goods at inferior
prices can be found only at
B.H.LEVY&BRO.’S.
Rouss's legal advisers, said that It was
admitted that Mr. Rouss's optic
nerves were fatally affected and that
total blindness was only a question of
time. At that moment the merchant came
unaided into the private room where the
reporter was talking to Mr. Macon.
"1 um sorry I cannot recognize your
face,” said he to the reporter. "I cannot
do that with anyone now, but I am not
as blind as some have said I am. I can
see those windows opposite there," point
ing across the room, "and I can see that
the blinds are half-i’own. I can see the
dim outline of the furniture about the
room, such as the chairs and tables. I
have little hope of regaining my sight. I
expect to lose it entrely, lyit I shall be the
last one to complain. I have had a hard
battle to contend with for the last thirty
years. I saw the losing of an Appomatox
in the south. 1 determined then to win
an Appomatox in the north. It has been
a hard battle, but I think I have non,
though at the expense of my sight. There
is one thing, the wife and Ittle ones will
never want.”
Taking the reporter Into his office he
ponited out the desk where he said all
his work had been done. "They want me
to leave it,” he said, "but how long should
1 live If 1 gave up my business? If I had
nothing to do and went into retirement
I think I should die In a month."
That fine old physical psycho, George
Kranlcs Train of the peanut complexion
and the creamy hair, occupies a corner
chair at the Continental hotel morning,
noon and evening. I was chatting with
him the other afternoon, says a writer in
the New York Press, when a barouche
drove up Broadway. In it was a short,
thick-set, oldish man with red hair and
stiff red mustache. He was bareheaded.
"Do you know who that Is, Mr. Train?"
I asked.
Train sprang up as the vehicle ap
proached, caught the man’s eye, and, with
a great flourish, took off his hat.
"There goes the only man In New York
I take off my hat to," he said. "Charles
Broadway Rouss.”
Countless strangers who have sought
Introductions to Mrs. Jefferson Davis and
her daughter, Miss Winnie, remember
meeting with them on almost every occa
sion a tall, dignified, gray-whiskered gen
tleman, who seemed to exercise a sort of
guardianship over them. He is Col. Robert
C. Wood of New Orleans. He was a bosom
friend of the president of the late con
federate government, and after hts death
became the confidential adviser and pro
tector of his wife and daughter.
He worships them, and they look up to
him as the best, the ablest, the wisest and
the kindest man in all the world. One of
Col. Wood’s warmest friends is Charles
Broadway Rouss. It was through him that
Mr. Rouss gave the fund of SIOO,OOO to start
the establishment of a National Memorial
Association. Rouss came to New York
after the war with SI.BO In cash and SII,OOO
In old debts against him. He is to-day
worth several millions. He Is the founder
of the net spot cash business system.
Ho tramped up and down Broadway, slept
In the parks, and In the Oak street po
lice station and lived at the lunch tables
of the Aator house and the Metropolitan
and St. Nicholas hotels. He is a groat en
tertainer. He loves to have his friends at
his table. Col. Wool always sits ut his
right hand, as genera! manager of the din
ner and guardian of the host, who is in
clined to partake rather too freely of the
gyod things set before him, especially of
the wines, which send him off to bed at
an early hour. After he retires Col. Wood
acts as host. His house, one of the finest
In Fifth avenue. Is opposite the cathedral,
and the latch-string Is always on the out
side of the door for every southerner who
happens to i>as* that way.
—Not an Encouraging Example.—“ ‘Give
me the man who sings at nla work,' " j
quoted the citizen who believes all he
