It all John.on (rotn the moment the men rsised their guard. Jeffries, though the heavier and more rugged iu build, lacked in apeed, itrengtb and endurance, a. well aa ability to withstand punishment. Johnson was a marvel of skill, science and power. Alter me nrsi re ruuu, in wnlcb he worked cautiously and took the measure of his man, the negro seemed to toy sum nis antagonisi, nimug mm almost at will, while Jeffries, though be bore In, cculd not reach the other fighter with any effect. In the whole 8gbt he planted but one blow that counted, body punch in the 11th. Alter tb. fifth, when Johnsou clooed Jeff's ey. with a bard blow, to the end be simply tore up the while man with savage face punches that toolt the itrewIh and pluck out of the latter, leaving bira unable to act on the aggressive. In the final rounds it was clear that nothing but chance blow could save tbe old champion. This John sou never allowed. Iu the 15th the darky seemed to make up bis mind that tbe affair bad goab long euougb and be jumped in to finish it. He caught Jeff nitb a series of jaw blows and nppercuts that tnsde blm sink to th. floor, with his arms over tbe ropes. He staggered up before the count. asisted by his seconds, but was seot down under a hail of blows. A third time be rci, and third time his dusky conqueror beat him to the ropes. He was helpless and almost insensible. He w not quite knocked out, but the end was so apparent that his seconds gave up for him, anJ the referee. Tex Kicard, promoter ot the fight, awarded the fight to Johnson. It was a clean victory for tbe black man. Jeffries, in spite of bis long training, "is unable to "come back." He bad almost none of his old power, and his endurance was gone. At the finish he presented a sorry sight, his lace cut up and covered with blood and one eve closed, while Johnson was almot iunmarksd. As a flgbt it was poor spec ilBclf, the men being altogether un- inatrbed. aiore miereu uwi this mill than any before. All of the well known figures in pugilism were in or about tbe ring, including Corhett, Hharkey, Hulllvan. Fitrsimmons, Bvan and fboyinski. Th. stakea were a for tune, ff 121, 000, of which the winner got Rn th. loer 40 i. There was bide. a bonus of 10,000 each to tbe fighters, ,000 tor t)a moving icb will be abown inson will get dVer si.10,000 and Jeffries over f 101,000 In all. tl. ..ki .Mn he to nun neoDle. includ- l UC B " I mm ' - ing 1500 women, and tbe admisions were over 150,000. The betting odds favored Jeffries at 10 to 8. It is considered likely that this wilt be ths last big fight; first, because Nevada is the only state that will now permit am-b mills, and may soon slop them; second, because few white men will challenge a negro. Tbe victory of th. negro resulted In clasbee between tbe rices and several deaths in various places. The Big Fellows In Politics.

The special village meeting Tuosrtay evening to consider the perennial subject of electric lights didn't determine any thing conclusively, nevertbeless no one present regretted it'tending. A great deal cf information on the matter was drawn out during the evening .nrl (he thru i hours' discussion brought forth much tbat is likely to bave an important bear ing on tbe final disposition of tb. sub ject. There were present C. D. Cushing, L. M. Heath and W. a Clifford, repre senting the White River Electric com pany, and Firl Kiziell, manager of tbe Consolidated Lighting company, snd Clarence H. Senter, so sttorney, of Mont pelier. Tbe special committee appointed to in vestigate, O. J. Marcott, A. H. Beedle and V. I. Spear, read their report, which bad been circulated in printed form and was published in these columns last week. It embodied propositions from tbe Bethel Power Co., the White River Electric Co. aud the Consolidated, and these were taken up and considered in general and detail, one by one. The offer of the Betbel Power Co. to ell the generating plant below Betbel to the villsge for fBO.OOO, or to lease it for a term of years with privilege of buying, waa passed over after brief consideration. Tb. White River company made two offer, concerning street lighting, under one of which the village may tak. over the present street system without cost and tbe company will supply current for at least 200 40-wstt lamps at 8c per k. w. hour. Under the other, the company will install tbe tungBten system of street ligbta and maintain it, furnishing cur rent tor 200 32 c. p. lamps until midnight sod four sll night st tbe rets off 11 per lamp per yesr; either contract to run ten yesrs. Mr. Cushing snswered various queries propounded, snd explsined the proposi tions, ss well ss the nsw meter rates for private lighting. He ssld the White Riv er company, which ia a distributing com pauy only, with s capital stock of flfl, 000, baa a contrsct with tbe Gaysville Power company by whom it i. supplied witb th. current needed for lighting this village. There ia machinery at Gavsville for handling and converting about U0 horsepower. The water fall there ia good, hut tbe reservoir small, and in times of low water tbe power fails. As reserve power for such times tbe company has at Betbel two large steam engines of 600 horsepower. It can also couple up with th. Bethel power plant whenever there is s surplus there. Mr. Lusning said that with th. saving that will follow metering tbe service he expected to sup ply day power end light. In .udh quanti ty as would likely b. needed. Certain speakers objected to abutting oft tbe street lights at midnight, as they havt heretofore run until tbe arrival of the night trains at 2 o'clock. Mr. Cusbing said that light, could b providsd until 2 If wanted, at s proportionate Increase in rate. Or It would be possible to wire up s certain uumbor of light, st corners snd expoaed points tbat could ba kept on la ter than 12. There .re now anoui zio oj c. p. carrion street ngrun iu n. which the village pay. f2200 per year. By putting in the superior tungstens it is thought 200 will suffice, which, at f 11. would niak. Ihe cost th. same, it only burnt till midnight. Tbe proposition of th. Consolidated company was explained by Manager Kiziell. Thia company oftera to supply Kaodolph village with electricity at Gran iteville, the transmission tine to connect there with the company's system, which cover. Barre snd Montpelier, Williams town, Watcrburv Snd Middlesex, with a large number of power patrons in the granite buiiness. Tbe village must pro vide the funds to build tbe transmission line from Graniteville to Randolph and tbe distributing and street lighting equipment within this village. Mr. Kiriell estimated tbe total expense would not exceed $35,000. From 10 to 12 was his estimate of losa In transmitting the current over the eighteen miles. Hie village pay. at the rat. of 5c. per k. w. hour for tbe current, meaiured at Gran iteville. It mav then s II to ssiatrons at 10 c, using tbe profit to -over tM dt of maiutenanre, the expense of street light ing or to pay construction bonds. Tbe Consolidated will construct the lines and install lb. svstem, if desired. Tbe Con solidated will, if the village desires, pur chase of tbe village the transiuision lines, rebating on the rates paid for cur rent for this purpose st the rate ol at lea.t 25 per year of the collections and raving interest on the umiuy iuvrcd by the village. Randolph must PV for a' minimum load of 273,750 k. w. hours per , year, whether used or not, at the rate i named. The contract is for fifteen years, j The company will provide 2t hour serv-1 ice, both light and power, in any quanti- i y needed, and has an abundance of I power without making any addition, to j its generating plants now available. Mr. Knitll said that he would give Isnv proper guaranties as to elrciency of service that might be desired. The villsire would he liable for any accident', fol lowed bv personal injury indemnities, as I long as it retained the system. The Con solidated does not want this contract nan enough to put up the f 35. 000 to install the system, though it w ill take it over and pav interest as above. Iu all other place ( it deals directly with the consiimer and i carries tbe current to him. He thought I the minimum load limit was a lair est i j male of the current ued at present. L"n- drr this rlan Randolph could supply cur ) rent to Brooktlrld. Randolph Center and otb-r villages if it wlhed. I Mr. l ushing stated ttist b'l company receives at present ahout f75iH a Vfr aro-s from Randolph, for street and rnv- i ' ate liihting, and called attention to the i f t tbat tbe Consolidated s minimum load requirement, 273.750 k. w. h. at Sc., would mean an exwniliture of about fit. ' 000 a year. This is what the village would have to pay, whether it could sell that amount or not. At lc. per k. w. b. ' etiid. it would evidently mean s i large addition to tb1. euro tbst privet ! users would bsve to pav, or tbe system would be a losing venture. Tbe meeting threshed th. .object ot In sll it. phases without indicting tb. trend of feeling and finally, on motion of . Dr. F C. Angell, adjourned until tbe first Wednesday in August, tor further consideration meanwhile, when it is probable that some definite step wilt be taken. The investigating committee waa continued and it was suggested tbat tbe several companies submit an sxact form ' contract to be acted apon at tbat time. i ., "''""'""" ""' The conjunction of Sunday snd the Fourth on the following dsy afforded s two day.' vacation tbat many sojourner, took advantage of to vi.it Randolph.

Use of Streets and Sidewalks. Mr. Edltor:- It is right that pedestrian, should havs si most exclusive use of tbe sidVwalks and crossings and ther. is a law which waa made to preserve to tbem tbst right. Law abiding citizens stem to bs st least the majority. Now let u. think it over. The drivewaya in tbe village are entire ly fit for bicycle travel. W. are all of opinion tbat coasting on tbe toy expresa wagona or any other vehi-' cle comes near being a nuisance to every body but tbe cosster, snd there is s lsw prohihitiug tbst. There is an element of danger in coast ing as above snd in ridings bicycle on tl.e sidewalks. Tbere Is practically no element of dan ger in the little express wagon being drawn by the handle or s baby carriage being pushed on tbe sidewalks. Now let us all try to arrange this bicy clelittle wagon buhy carriage difficul ty as law ahidiug citizens should; parents making proper suggestions to their chil dren sbout th. bicycle snd the toy wagon, snd the lsdie. with the baby car riages, giving tbs pedestrian, s fair (bare of the sitl.walk, and everybody willing to , help each other out. And there is tbe automobile; there are people wbo don't ow n automobiles, but wbo have horses and bar. an equal right to part of the atreet for horse carriages; aud pedestriana who hava equal righta witb tbe owners of horse and horseless carriages. Slow down in the streets and especially at street junctiona. And then tbere are the chickens and fools running at large. And about lead ing co vs to and from psstnre. and a few other things. There is room for us sll ia Randolph village. Think it over, every body, give every other body a "square deal." Daniel C. Woodward, Chief of Police.
