Coming- Senatorial Contests.
Special to the Giobe.
New Yoek. Dec. 28.— The approaching
senatorial contest is looked upon by some of
the Republicans of this state with feelings
akin to alarm. There will be several changes
in the senate with the next series of sena
torial elections, if the plans of two or three
vigorous young Democrats are carried out.
Gov. Hill intends that the legislature of
New York, to be elected next fall, shall
elect a Democratic successor to Warner
Miller. Your correspondent was talking
to-day with Railroad Commissioner O'Don
liell, one of the best posted Republicans of
the state, about the Republican candidates
for senator, when he said: "I can tell you
that unless the Republicans wake up no
Republican can be elected United States
senator. We have got to catch this hare be
fore we cook it." Nevertheless the skir
mishes of an interesting contest are already
taking place in the Republican ranks. The
6tate senate, which Holds for two years and
organizes next week, has twenty Republi
can members. Ii will probably be increased
to twenty-two by contests, so as to give a
two-thirds majority. But the twenty mem
bers will organize ihe body, and there is
A QUIKT STRUGGLE
on the part of Senator Miller and his oppo
nents to capture the organization as a pre
liminary step in next winters senatorship
contest. Ttie senator pot forward Suite
Senator Pitts as a candidate for president
pro tern. The opposition combined on
State Senator Lowe, the oldest member of
the body. He showed such an element of
personal strength that Miller's candidate
has bet'!) oblitreJ to poll out and leave the
field. The clerkship has been held for sev
eral years by John W. Vrooman. apolitical
plbtege of Miller and secretary of the Re
publican state committee. He was conn
dent of election two or three weeks ago,
but as it began to be understood that he
the pins have been set up atraiust him. The
man who will most likely come to the front
to contest Miller's place is Levi P. Morton.
But Hiscock, ex-Gov. A. B. Cornell, ex-
Senator T. E. Platt and Ira Davenport,
who has recently been used to mop up the
floor by Gov. Hill, are talked of as candi
dates. I heard of Davenport's name in
this connection from Senator Cullom. It
has not been spoken of here, though it
seems to have been cauvassed in Washing
ton. The Democrats have no candidate
visible yet. They are going to carry the
legislature before they discuss the other
point, and being
UNFORTUNATELY QT THE MINORITY
in the legislature, need not raise the ques
tion before them. Another state where a
resolute young Democratic leader i 3 bent on
making a I nited states senator of his o\m
faith is Michigan. The leader is Don M.
Dickinson. I dined with him at the Hoff
man house to-day. He had come from
Washington and was on his way home to

made to my inquiry wliether the Democrats
of Michigan intended to try to carry the

was the emphatic response. There has
been some talk that Mr. Dickinson had dis
pleased tiie president m making certain rec
ommendations, where appointees proved
unfit. He said to me that the most com
plete answer to -all this froth was the fact
that the president sent in last week the very

was that of Judge Powers of Utah and his

furnish ar. addition. to the record in his case
that would effectually set at rest all the
stories about him. Mr. Dickinson said to

Washington, Dec. 28. — Speaker Car
lisle will not make public the house com
mittees until the reassembling of congress.
He is daily engaged in preparing the list,
but the work is as yet far from complete.
There is a general scramble for assignment
on the committee of labor. It is generally
conceded that either Foran of Ohio or'O'Neil
of Missouri will be made chairman. There
appears to be no doubt about Representa
tive Blaud's appointment as chairman of
the committee on coinage, weights and
measures. A great deal of pressure is be
ing brought to bear by the silver men to
have members who stand as they do on the
silver question, assigned to the committee,
while at the same time considerable influ
ence is being exerted looking to the con
struction of the committee so that it will
harmonize with the administration. Secre
tary Whitney is believed to prefer the ap
pointment of Mr. Hewitt of New York as
chairman of the committee on
naval affairs and, as heretofore
stated, the indications point to his
selection. In view of the changed rules
necessitating the distribution of the ap
propriation bills the probable make-up of
the more important committees is probably
in the dark, and predictions beyond those
heretofore mentioned cannot yet be made
with any degree of accuracy, and if the
(treat pressure from all sides "continues, the
speaker may be compelled to change his
assignments which all along have been con
sidered by many as foregone conclusions.
The speaker is extremely reticent on the
subject, as also his few advisers.
Carlisle"* (oranii tiee AVork.
Washhtotoh, Deo. 2S.— Speaker Car
lisle is about half tbroui.ii with his commit
tees. He has skeletonized the list and has
most of his chairmanships settled, and is
fitting the numerous members in their
places. The committees he is having the
most difficulty about are the foreign affairs,
labor and coinage, weights and measures.
The Star says:
It is settled that Mr. Bland is to hold the
chairmanship of the coinage, weijrhts and
measures, but the composition of the com
mittee is giving- the speaker much worry.
Pressure is beinp brought to bear by Mr.
Bland and the other silver men to have none
but advocates of the bill placed upon it.
There is on the other hand great influence
sxerted to have it constructed in harmony
rith :"cf administration. In this way the
ipeafeer is subjected to a heavy cross-lire
:hat is very harrassinjr. The secretary of
:he navy, it is said, will have much to say
»bout the composition of tha naval commit
tee. Mr. Hewitt, it is conceded, will be at
Hie head and a number of others whom Mr.
Whitney favors will be placed upon it.
Sparks Thinks He Will Stay*
Washington, Dec. 28. — Land Commis
llouer Sparks thinks he will not be exiled.
In an interview last evening he said:
If the president is not satisfied with my
management of the land office then I am
much mistaken. I have not seen him for
some time, as he has been busy about other
things, but I know he is pleased with the way
the office is being run. The statement that
my decisions have been overruled as
rapidly as I made them is man
ufactured out of whole cloth. The
secretary of the interior has never overruled
i v decision made by me, although he has some
times suggested changes. Complaints ajjainst
me on the management of the land office
come from people who are interested in land
frauds acJ jobs. The complaints in the West
emanate from editors who are interested and
from lawyers who have to get along somehow.
We have a great many from there. The
stories are, I believe, the work of people
whose interests have been affected by ray
methods in running the land office, and I
know that one of the articles printed in a
Western journal was written on the office
paper of a big- firm here.
Tbe Washing-ton Christmas Club.
Washington, Dec. 28.— Fourteen hun
dren poor children to-day enjoyed the hos
pitality of that charming organization
known as the Children's Christmas club, of
which Miss Mollie Vilas, daughter of the
postmaster general, is president and Miss
Nellie Arthur, daughter of the ex-presi
dent, one of the vice presidents, and which
every year furnishes a Christmas dinner and
gifts to the children of the poor of the city.
Each of the 1,400 children was given an ex
cellent dinner, a box of candies and a
Christmas card. The tables were waited
upon by the daughters of the most promi

Miss Nellie Arthur personally superin
tended the giving out of the presents. Tha

other people well known in society at

The "Kissing Post" Jlust Go.
The particular form of church fair abuse
which has attracted Mr. Moody's attention
is the custom of setting up a pretty young
lady in the midst of the fair paraDhernalia
and allowing her to be kissed, at 25 cents a
kiss, by any and all comers. Of course the
people who come to a church fair are sup
posed in theory to be respectable and other
wise unobjectionable from a kissers point
of view, but in fact there is no guarantee,
and no way of getting or enforcing a guar
antee, of anything of the kind. It is not
easy to understand how a refined young
lady could submit to become everybody's
sweetheart, even at a fair for the benefit of
the church, without more or less conscious
ness of degradation, and. no matter how
benevolent the motive of her submission to
the process, those who patronize the kissing
stand are very likely to entertain somewhat
less respect for her forever afterward.
The Wealth of Jay Gould.
At the close of the present year Mr. Jay
Gould retires from active business with
50. 000 shares of Manhattan, 200, 000 shares
of Missouri Pacific, 200,000 shares of West
ern Union. The aggregate of these hold
ings represents a par value of 845,000.000.
The above shares stand to-day in the name
of Mr. Gould on the books and are paid for
in full: not a single dollar does he owe on any
one of them. In addition, Mr. Gould has over
813.000,000 to his credit in various banks
and trust companies. Besides, he has not
less than 510.000,000 par value in the stocks
of the Wabash company, with, of course,
a large holding in the bonds of his South
western system. Mr. Gould owes not a
dollar on Wall street and he has nothing
that is not paid for in full. Mrs. Gould has
in her own name a large amount invested
in city and suburban property. All things
together, the wealth of Mr. Gould cannot
fall much below 3100,000,000. He can af
ford to retire.

Several leading newspapers are advocating
what would have seemed a preposterous
thing a few months ago, but which the revo
lutionary propositions for home rule and
practical Irish separation have prepared tbe
public to receive with oomparative patience.
This is no less than that the queen, in other
words the Conservative ministry, shall dis
solve parliament and order a new elec
tion, the pretext being afforded by
the submission of such measures
as shall force a campaign upon the
question of the secession of Ireland. Thus,
for the first time is introduced into English
politics the word which aroused such passions
in American politics twenty-flve years ago.
and which stands for so important a part of
your history. Secession is likely to be as hate
ful a cry in the mouths of Englishmen, using
it to arouse suspicion of
THE PAIIXKLLITES' PURPOSES,
as it was when uttered by the politicians of
the North to the condemnation of a threat
ened blow at the constitution. Probably no
rallying cry could be so strong in arousing
the prejudices and unalterable oppo
sition of every Briton, be he Tory, Whig,
or Radical, and Gladstone and Parnell would
be bold statesmen indeed if they were to face
it without modifying their supposed alliance
in some way as to rob the battle cry "seces
sion" of its plausibility. The provisions of
the measure to be proposed by Lord Salis
bury's government for the amendment of the
laws affecting Ireland were formally sub
mitted to her majesty to-day for approval.
They have been pretty thoroughly
VENTILATED IN THE PRESS,
having become known unofficially, but with
substantial accuracy in that sub rosa manner
which defies the long-keepingof state secrets.
The measure falls so far short of the
Irish demands and the Liberals' willingness
to concede, that public attention will be
naturally diverted from it to the measure
which will be brought forward by Gladstone
and over which will take place one of the
greatest contests known to parliamentary

SHORT WORK OF THE REBELS.
Successful campaigns in Burmah and
Egypt, even though they be of moderate im
portance, w#ll be something to point to in tbe
way of active achievement when parliament
convenes, and the argument may be made
that success in small things is better than
failure in the attempt to do great things, as
for example the Soudan experiences of the

London, Dec. 28. — It is asserted to
night in a quarter entitled to the highest
respect that Lord Salisbury will introduce
a bill into parliament founded on the report
of the trade commission. The bill will
largely affect important American interests.
The cabinet find themselves sustained by a
rapidly growing public opinion favoring the
imposition of duties on imported goods
coming'into competition with BritisrT pro
ducts. The heaviest exporter of such pro
ducts is America, and America
will be the heaviest sufferer by
the change. The free-trade interest
in the ministry is still large, and Lord Sal
isbury calls himself a free trader, therefore
the bill will be only moderately protective,
and then only to secure reciprocity. The
postion of the government is that the impor
tation of the productions of America and
foreign countries into England is free, and
the exportation of English products into
foreign countries is not free. From
the cabinet standpoint, this is not
free trade, and from the standpoint
of British material interests, calls for re
form. The report of Lord Iddesleigh's
commission of inquiry lays this down as the
most important result of their investigation.
Lord Salisbury has been preparing himself
to deal with the question since 1880, but de
ferred action until the commission had
reached definite conclusions. The remedy
proposed by the cabinet will be the one de
manded by the mass of the voting popula
tion of the ministry, and prove a mighty
lever in the coming elections if parliament
should be dissolved this year as expected.
The Cattle Dealers' Boycott.

Cokk, Dec. 28. — There is no longer any
hope of an amicable settlement of the
trouble between the Cork Steam Packet
company and the cattle dealers. The boy
cotting of the company's steamer has been
more strict than ever before. The cattle
dealers have issued their prospectus for the
proposed opposition line of steamers to ply
between Cork and Liverpool and to carry
no boycotted cattle or goods. They have
also issued an address to the people in de
tense of their course. The people are gen
erally favorable to the cattle dealers, but
much sympathy has been expressed for the
sailors and laborers hitherto employed by
the steam packet company, who were dis
charged when the company's steamers were
withdrawn through loss of trade caused by
the boycott. The cattle dealers now offer
to employ these men in preference to all
others on the opposition steamers and
An Arrangement With Gladstone.
Dublin, Dec. 28.— The Evening Mail

which Mr. Parnell will support Mr. Glad
stone in his effort to gain control of the

Mr. Gladstone will introduce on his ac
cession to power a measure for home rule

ments upon which there is a disagreement

patch from London to-day stating that the
police have been ordered to resume tlie pre

ment, owing to the excitement among the

Ft. Smith, Ark,, Dec. 28. — Another
bloody affray occurred in the Cherokee na
tion yesterday in which George C. Hines
was brutally murdered by Dave Mize and
Joe Hunter. The cause of the killing was
Hines' attention to Mize's wife. Mize and
wife had parted on Christmas eve. Hines
escorted Mrs. Mize to a party. This en
raged Mize, who swore vengeance on Hines.
Yesterday Mize anu Hunter went to the
residence of Hines' father and called their
victim out for the ostensible purpose of
talking with him. Taking youug Hines
away into the woods a few steps, Mize,
who had a double-barrelled shotgun, turned

by Hunter, he riddled the dying boy's body
with bullets and left it weltering in blood.
Both murderers escaped, but deputy mar

Flight of a Bold Forger.
Special to the Globe.
Newton, 111., Dec. 2S. — Joseph C. Lit
zelman, a contractor, has disappeared be
tween two days, leaving behind him scores
of victims who held nothing but his forged
paper. Litzelman has recently been en
gaged in buying and selling railroad ties to
the Peoria, Decatur & Evansville railroad.
He also bought up staves and hoops in
large quantities, and his transactions made
it necessary to handle large sujqs of money,
which he generally raised on forged notes.
The forger bought a 82,000 residence with
forged paper, and came into possession of
other property by the same methods. His
mode of doing business was always consid-
I ered by practical business men as very reck
less, but it was not until within two or
three weeks prior to his departure that the
people became suspicious of his actions.
Litzelman smelled a mouse, and carrying
previous plans into execution, escaped be

could be laid on him. The amounts of his
forgeries vary from S5O to $2,000 in each

went ashore on Duck island. She is said
to have had a crew of six men. A hulk,
supposed to be that of a bark can be seen
on the bar inside of Duck island and the
crew are probably lost. Many other

came acquainted with Joseph Merklen. He
is a Frenchman and served several years in
the French cavalry. In 1876 he came to
this city. His proficiency in horsemanship,
gained while in the army, gave him a place
in the riding school, where he became a
teacher. A few years ago Merklen bought
an interest in the business and has of late
superintended the school, doing little teach
ing himself. When Miss Unger became a pu
pil he devoted his personal attention to her.
She became pleased with his interest in he r
progress and spent more time than before
at the riding school. Some six months ago
Merklen sold out his share in the riding
school *r 880,000. • With this money he
went toTPans on the pretext of closing up
some other business in which he was inter
ested. In a few. weeks he was back in New
York. During his stay he saw Miss Unger
and informed her family that he wished to
marry her. This declaration was received
by the young lady's friends with astonish
ment and every effort was made to
dissuade her from marrying him.
As Miss Frida was of age
and Merklen was able to support her, the
matter lay wholly in the young lady's
hands. It was finally arranged by her
friends that she should make a visit to a
sister, who is living in Paris, and a*bout
four months ago she left here with a
younger brother for that city. By a pre
concerted arrangement, it is believed, she
met Merklen. who had returned to Paris,
and they were married. The family and
friends were told of the girl's determination
before the ceremony, but no attempt was
made to prevent the marriage. Merklen is
reported to be living in luxury in Paris,
where he intends to reside with his bride.

old man learned that Gannon and Rosa had
arrived there Christmas morning, and hav
ing a big roll were assigned to a parlor.
During the day they drove arouud the city
and made a large number of purchases. At

Dr. William McDaniel, a wealthy retired
physician of Calvert county, who is over
seventy years old, astonished his friends by
announcing that he intended to marry Miss
Carrie Gale, a young sister of Dr. William
H. Gale, member of the state legislature
from Calvert county. The physician who
had been attending Dr. McDauiel warned
him that marriage would be attended by

joyed a week of the honeymoon before it
became apparent that his mind was becom
ing affected. His wife, in great terror,
summoned several physicians, but all their
efforts could not arrest the mental decay.

greatly distressed and her friends claim she
has a most romantic and genuine , love for
her aged husband. ■ Miss Gale's friends
knew nothing of her contemplated marriage

Washington, Dec. 28.— 1n response to
the urgent telegrams from Senator Fair, the
secretary of the treasury has decided to send
a search party after the missing whaler,
Amethyst, supposed to have been cast

islands, and well up into the Behring sea.
The relief steamer will put in at Onalaska

Jack Burke Knocks Out Mike Gleaiy

Contest, Falls Senseless from a
Over 4,000 Enthusiastic People Wit

Chicago Ever Saw.
Some Lively Sparring at the Olympic
Between Local and Imported
Burke Whip* Cleary.
Chicago, Dec. 28.— Probably the most
exciting glove contest ever witnessed ia
Chicago occurred here to-night, in which
Jack Burke of Chicago in three rounds
knocked out Mike Cleary of New York.
As early as 7:oO o'clock to-night the atmos
phere of Battery D, exhaled by fully 4,000
pairs of lungs, reeked with suppressed ex
citement and cigar smoke. Half an hour
later a belated reporter lost half an hour
fighting his way through the condensed
mob that packed the building to its utmost,
and ran a hundred or two onto the street.
A more than usurious percentage ot the
crowd were enthusiastic admirers of Jack
Burke, the "Irish lad," and they were
awaiting with bated breath the sublime
moment when he should "knock out" the
New York celebrity, Mike Cleary. "Par
son" Davis, smooth shaven, with white

in the cut of his jib, well became the office
of manager of the entertainment. Pat
Sheedy, pallid, gentlemanly, nonehalent,
did the aristocratic feature of the occasion,
and Jack Dempsey, attracted all the way
from New York, Pat Killen, Tom Chandler
and other dignitaries beamed nnmistakable
approbation. The program said Marquis of
Queensberry rules, small, soft gloves, six
rounds. Though Billy Lakeman, master of
ceremonies, said the small fry of the pro
gram would be gotten out of the way in
short order, it was nearly 10 o'clock when
the lions of the evening made their appear
ance. In the preliminaries Boston was
creditably represented by Prof. Tom Chand
ler, who sparred four rounds for points with
Paddy Carroll of Chicago, in which neither
got any. "Jack Burke and Mike Cleary."
When the crowd had
CHEERED ITSELF HOABSE
at this announcement The master of cer
emonies said that William Bradburn of the
stock yards had been agreed upon as ref
eree, there were more cheers. Presently
the celebrities appeared simultaneously and
everybody got up and yelled and swung his
hat. Prof. Tom Chandler of Boston and
Capt. Dalton appeared as seconds to Cleary,
while Tom Chandler of Chicago and Jack
Flots performed the same service for Burke.
The timekeepers were Charles Benedict
and Tom Curley. Both men were in prime
condition and Burke tipped the scales at
165 pounds and Cleary about the same. At
exactly 10 o'clock the men faced each other,
sparred an instant for an opening and a mo
ment later Cleary went to grass from
A TEBKIFIC BACK-HANDER
from Burkes left, which struck him square
on the eye and brought blood. The round
finished with some ineffectual attempts on
Cleary's part to get in his right on Burkes
The second round panned out rather
favorably for Cleary. who got in a stinging
counter with his left on Burkes cheek. He
tapped him gently twice more and the
round closed with some continuous sparring
on both sides.
When the men stood up for the third
round Burkes pink and glowing skin
showed in strange contrast to the almost
marble whiteness of Cleary's fine face and
physique. Burkes whole aspect was elo
quent of vigor and confidence, yet Cleary,
pale and supple, looked well his match.
Early in this exciting bout Cleary got what
later proved to have been the blow that de
cided the contest. The New York man
FOBCED THE FIGHTING
at first but Burke soon crowded in on him
and impetuously forced him into his corner,
hit him two rattling blows on the face with
his left, then parrying Cleary's right with
his own right glove struck the New Yorker
heavily on the neck. Cleary staggered and
seemed dazed for a moment, then recovered
himself with an effort and forced Burke
desperately to the opposite side of the ring.
It could be seen that the New Yorker wa3
breathing heavily and shook slightly with
suppressed excitement, while Burke, per
fectly cool and collected, watched calmly
for his chance. It came, and quick as a
flash his right arm shot out and Cleary fell
like a log. The blow caught him fairly,
just under and behind his left ear, and
KNOCKED HTM SENSELESS
"My God, he's killed him," some one
muttered. The huge audience was perfectly
silent. Burke stepped up to his fallen ad
versary, and, when after he failed to move
for a few seconds but lay stretched at full
length on his back, the tender-hearted
Irishman stooped over and shook him gen
tly, his face exhibiting genuine alarm. A
little later Cleary's prostrate form showed
signs of life, and the crowd rose with wild
cries of "Burke," "Burke." It seemed as
though the platform would be torn to pieces
when the champion climbed over the ropes
and walked jauntily to his dressing-room,
every whit as steady as when he came out.
Cleary's seconds picked him up and helped
him to his dressing-room, where he revived
in a few minutes. Since Burke went to
California, after his set-to with Sullivan, he
has cultivated the offensive use of his right
hand, which is believed by many to be the
secret of his remarkable succest to-night.
Four Pairs Spar.
Thlng3 were quite lively at the Olympic
theater last evening when four different
teams sparred. The boxing was put in as
a part of the program for the reason that
the Tourists, who were to have appeared at
that place of amusement during the week,
did not show up. tarrying in Chicago. The
program consisted of a sparring match of
four three-minute rounds, and then a song
or jig dance. The first to spar were Barnes
and Hadley. The coming of these two to
gether so frequently is becoming less amus
ing each succeeding time, and in time can
only be endured. Hadley has no science,
but any amount of egotism and gall,
and his presence on the stage
is becoming a nuisaace. Trainer of
Montana, and Fenning of Milwaukee had
another go, this time Trainer getting ranch
the better of the Milwaukee N>y. Trainer,
under Barnes, is improving greatly, both in
science and force, and in another week or
two will make a good showing. The
Magoon brothers slugged each other with
lightning rapidity for four rounds, scoring*
draw. Then came the tug of war between
Black Frank of Mexico and Bob Frazer of
Charleston, S. C. They were both black
as midnight, and as soon as they entered
the ring they fairly flew at each other,
shutting their eyes and striking miscellane
ously. Their endeavors to make things
interesting for each other caused a good
deal of merriment to the audience. The
match was decided in Black Frank's favor.
The sparring program will be changed .every
night during tho week.
