Show That Clilcngo Is Losing Its Prestige as n. Groin Center. A Burlington official states that the movement of corn on that line Is now about equally divided between Chicago and the Gulf ports. Railroad officials say that 1 "" ihre Is more corn going around Chicago than is coming to It, the Southern Atlantic ports Baltimore, Newport News and Nor folkgetting the benefit. New Orleans is Btlll leading all ports in the corn export trade. Twenty-seven million bushels cleared from that port in the first eleven months of this year; from Galveston, 8,613, 000, at both ports, 2S.9S3.000 bushels In ex cess of last year. Newport News and Nor folk have not suffered, but for the same time have exported 27,000,000 bushels, an-in-t lease of over 19.000,000 bushels over last j ear. Baltimore has made some gains, ex porting 30,000.000 bushels, against 23,000,000 bushels the first eleven months of 1S33. MAY' XOT BE RENDERED MOXDAY.

IN Rent the Australian Down "With n, Shower of Hard Blows Race NVinncrs at New Orleans nnd San Francisco. New York, Dec. 23 It took just twenty seven seconds' tlmo for Peter Maker, tho Irish pugilist, to again demonstrate his su periority in ring tactics and hard hitting qualities over Steve O'Donnell, the Aus tralian boxer, in the arena of the Greater New York Athletic Club, at Coney Island. Both men were in excellent condition and trained to tho hour. Each of them was confident, but Maher's backers made him a hot favorite by laing odds ranging from 3 to 5 to 1 on the Irishman's chances of winning. Trom tho outset Maher never left tho re sult in doubt. He rushed at O'Donnell the moment the referee called time, and O Don noil assumed the defensive. The big Aus tralian led his left for Maher's body, but tho Irishman blocked the blow with his right hand glove. Then Maher sent his left to tho chin and swung again with his left on the face. Ho put O'Donnell to tho floor a second later with a left on tho chin, and, after the Australian regained his feet, Ma her landed a left smash on the jaw, follow ing U quickly with a left half-hook, which sent O'Donnell down In a heap. Stevo rolled over on his back in a help less condition and the referee slowly count ed him out. The big Irishman stood about twelve feet away from his fallen opponent whllo the referee was counting oft the sec onds, and as soon as the refereo tallied ten a tremendous shout went up from the 1.S00 people who had watched the brief en counter, and the band played "Tho Wear ing of the Green" in honor of the victor. Thirteen months ago Maher and O'Don nell met at the Empire Athletic Club, Mas peth, L. I., and on that occasion Maher knocked out the Australian In slty-three seconds. Since that time O'Donnell and his followers havo frequently said that Steve would not rest content until ho had another try at Peter. O'Donnell was tho fifst to enter the ring Ho climbed through the ropes at 3 30 o'clock, clad in a gray colored bath robe. His seconds were Sam Fltzpatrick, Billy Madden, Mike Butler and Gus Ruhlin, the Canton, O , giant. When Maher emerged from his dressing room five minutes later a cheer went up which shook the building. As soon a3 he got Into the ring Maher bowed his ack low ledgment for the warm welcome extended to him, and he never looked better In his life. He was escorted by Peter Lowry of Dublin, Pete Burns of Harlem, Ills' sparring partner, and Jack Qulnn of Brooklyn. Maher when weighed tipped the scales at lTT-and O'Donnell at 181. The men shook hands at 3:46 and Ref eree Alec Brown lost no time in bringing them together. There was a dead silence in the house when the men put up their fists and Maher rushed across the ring al most to O'Donnell's corner. Both sparred for a fow seconds and O'Donnell led his left for the body, but Maher blocked the blow with his right glove. Peter then jabbed his left hard on tho chin and land ed a heavy left swing on the face. This staggered O'Donnell and ho seemed to be unable to avoid Peter's rushes. Maher sent O'Donnell to the floor with a hard left on the chin and tho Australian staed down four seconds. As soon as he got to his feet O'Donnell assumed a defensive attitude, but Peter quickly sent his left once moro on the chin and ns O'Donnell was falling, caught him quickly with a left half hook, kndcktng the Australian down and out. O'Donnell was counted out according to the rules, and Sam Fltzpatrick ana Madden, assisted by Lowry, carried him to his corner. As soon as it was seen that the Irishman had won a tremendous shout went up, and the spectators rose as one man to their feet, and hats, caps and umbrellas were thrown into the air. The official timer told the announcer that the time of the con test was ninety seconds, but John J. Qulnn, of Pittsburg, who was keeping timo for Maher, as well as many others, who held watches on tho contest, declared tho actual timo to be 27 seconds. Beforo the spectators left it was an nounced that in all probability the next contest to be brought oft in tho Greater New York Club would Be between Peter Maher and Tom Sharkey. Maher will leavo for Pittsburg to-morrow, and to-morrow night will spar with Joe Choynski at that place. WINNERS ATJJEW ORLEANS.

While the attendance at the Christmas day handicap sweepstakes shoot at Wash ington park yesterday were not as large as was looked for, the goodly number of sportsmen who participated in the event enjoyed tho shooting thoroughly, as the day was almost an ideal one for the sport and the birds furnished for tho occasion were an excellent lot. The entries in the big sweepstakes at J12 50 each were fourteen in number, and of these eleven shot out the full twent-tive birds, thrco withdrawing after missing enough birds to put them outside the mon ey. The winner of the sweep proved to be George Wnsson, who shot in great form from the thlrt ard mark, losing only his fourth bird, a difficult driver, and finishing with the fine score of 24 kills. W. H. Mc Gee, who shot from the twenty-eight ard mark, lost but two birds, and won second money with 23, while Dave Elliott, who shot from the thirty ard mark, was one bird behind McGee, winning third money with 22 kills. First money amounted to $56 SO; second money to $31 10, and third money to $23.75. The scores lollow: Geo Wasson (30).. 2110111111221121221121122 21 W. H.
