Mellody has written to "Smith's Hope" stating lie would fight any time in this city and that all that would be necessary would be a wire and he would leave for the west.

It is understood that the winner of this match will meet John Piening, the "Butcher Boy," for the Graeco-Roman championship of America. This match Is the outcome of the persistent challenging of John Pien ing by Charles Delivuk. As Pien ing considers Fred Mohl the best It Is not the conventional hand shake of tho politician. It Is the firm, quick grasp that acts truly the words Its owner repeats: "How do you do, sir. I am glad to meet you."

NEW YORK, March 29.—Much interest attaches to the examina tions to be held here and in other cities In different parts of the coun try of graduates of medical colleges who desire to become commission ed officers of the Medical Depart ment of the Army. There will be about thirty places in the grade of first lieutenant (assistant surgeon) to be filled by the preliminary ex aminations which are to take place on May 1, and end July 31. Some difficulty has been encountered hitherto in obtaining candidates who come up to the requirements, and this inability to keep the vac ancies in the corps filled has serv ed as an argument in favor of in creasing the higher grades of the department, s 0 as to facilitate pro motion and offer better chances of advancement to those who are dis posed to enter the corps. PROMOTIONS ARE BLOCKED (Scripps News WASHINGTON, D. C, March 29. —Many second lieutenants of the army are greatly disturbed over the fact that they cannot be pro moted. No officer of that grade of the Infantry army has been advanc ed since last September, This Is on account of charges pending against Lieutenant V. W. Poller, of the 20th Infantry. These charges reached the War Department, and although Boiler had been nominat ed for promotion, the Senate Mili tary committee has asked for furth er information concerning him, with the result that the court of in quiry has been detailed, and It will be several weeks, if not months, before the situation is relieved for the subalterns of infantry.

Victor Insists on Visiting Geneva This Spring and There Be in the Very Center of the World's An archistic Propaganda—Extraord inary Means to Protect Him. GENEVA, March 28.—King Vic tor of Italy wants to visit Geneva this spring, but he has been warned by the Swiss authorities that if he does so he will run a big risk of assassination. Victor will attend the opening of the Simplon tunnel in May, and after the ceremony, he has signifi ed his desire to visit Switzerland and see Geneva, the center of the world's anarchist propaganda. If the king carries out his resolve, the chances are favorable that he will fall a victim to an assassin's revol ver or bomb for the Geneva anarch chist3 have sworn to take his life as they killed the empress of Aus tria when she visited Geneva in 1898. Since the assassination of Franz Josef's consort, European rulers have been chary of going near Gen eva, for there is no death penalty Switzerland and the anarchists as sassins know that nothing worse than imprisonment can fall to their lot, with the possibility of ultimate pardon or escape. King Victor, however, is famous for his courage, and the Swiss gov ernment, though it is doing every thing in its power to dissuade him' from visiting Geneva, fears the young ruler will not be guided by the advice that is being offered him. The king has said that he does not fear all the anarchists in the world and that the best way to court as sassination is to be a coward. If Victor comes to Geneva, the local authorities will take the most extraordinary means to protect him They will either arrest or expel temporarily every anarchist and dangerous revolutionist in the city.
