teat tot the world', heavyweight cham
pionship at Reno, Sev., July 4. 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

ing 1500 women, and tbe admisions were

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

GRANT'S DRUG STORE
LIGHT ON LIGHTING QUESTION.
Village Meeting Tueaday Developed
Much of Interest to Citizens.
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.

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."
