Pugilist Brennan Fatally Injured.
• by Slugger Garrard, of Chi
Chicago, July B.— Jack Ashton was
to meet Frank Glover to-night at Bat
tery D armory in a hard-glove contest .
and 2,000 people * assembled to witness
the pugilistic encounter. The police
prevented the men from appearing, how
ever, owing to the fact that when the
time came another pugilist who had par
ticipated in one of the preliminary
fights that formed part *of the pro
gramme was seriously injured. The un
fortunate was Mike Brennan, of Boston,
who, in a clinch with Frank Garrard,
suffered a terrific fall. Brennan's
head struck the floor, knocking him
insensible. He had previously been
keeled over repeatedly by smashing
right and left-ban ers from Garrard.
The latter was arrested. At midnight
the death of the injured man is expected
at any time. The fight between Garrard
and Brennan, although a minor affair
to the supposed leading number on
the programme, was generally known
to be "for blood," as the sports
put it, tor the reason that Brennan only
a short time ago severely punished
Tommy White, a local favorite in fistic
circles, particularly among board of
trade men. White's friends wanted
to see Brennan punished in re
turn, knocked out if possible.
White led Garrard on the plat
form, and Brennan, who hailed
from Boston, was backed by John Mc-
Inerney and "Sailor" Brown. The first
round opened furiously, Brennan strik
ing with all his force and leading for
his opponent's jugular. Garrard soon
learned to duck the blows, and in less
than a minute
Countered With an Uppercut
that knocked the Boston youth
sprawling. The atmosphere of the hall,
where 2,000 spectators sal in their shirt
sleeves, was stifling, and both fighters
were groggy before the close of the
round, In the second round Brennan
saw that he was overmatched, and desir
ing to get out as gracefully as possible
made a deliberate foul by catching his
opponent by the leg and tripping him.
Referee "Red" Gallagher understood
the motive and refused to allow the
claim of foul. In the third round Bren
nan led again with his swinging blows, :
but Garrard, the more active of the
two, avoided them, aud invariably coun
tered on the body or jaw with telling
effect. During the fourth round Gar
rard began a series of knock downs that
continued throughout the rest of the
battle. As fast as Brennan Arose he
would go down again, each time grow
ing more weak until the fifth round,
when he could little moie than stand
lip and clinch. Garrard was also
partly exhausted, and when Brennan
lell against him in the sixth round
clinching, he simply pushed the
latter backward and both fell, Garrard
on top. Brennan _ head struch the floor
with all the force of the weight of the
two men. Garrard arose but Brennan
was unconscious, and was finally car
ried from the ring. He was undressed
and cold water thrown on him, but
without arousing him. Seeing that the
man's condition was more serious than
a simple knock-out. "Parson" Davies
Sent for a Physician,
and Dr. Francis Sherwood, of the Palm
er house, responded. He went up to
where Brennan lay stretched out on.
rugs like one dead, and at ohce pro
nounced his condition dangerous. His
pulse was slow and the heart beats barely
distinguishable. Every now and then
he would have a slight- convulsion,
gasping for breath, which was accom
panied by a dry rattling noise deep in
his throat. Tne room was cleared and
Garrard was turned over to an officer,
and taken to police headquarters under
arrest. Brennan's symptoms were
those of a bad concussion of the brain.
After two hours' working the physicians
said the unfortunate pugilist - could
hardly * recover. Besides - Garrard .. the
police also arrested Carroll, Gallagher
and Mclnerny.

A Family of Three Drown Their
Sorrows in the Hudson.
New York, July 3.— A man, woman
and child committed suicide in Hoboken
this morning because the father of the
family was unable to pay a mortgage of
$25 on their household furniture, which
was about to be foreclosed. Frank
Wertland, his wife and child . lived in
apartments at No. 146 Park avenue,
Hoboken. Wertland was a writer for
musical papers. He had but little to do,
and got behind in his expenses. A
friend of the family (a woman whose
name has not y.et been disclosed) loaned
the Wertlands $25 and took a mortgage
on all of their personal property. This
woman went before Justice Rush . and
secured an attachment on Wertland's
property. This worried Wertland great
ly when he heard of it. Landlord Henry
Kaiser, from whom Wertland rented,'
their rooms, got a letter this morning
from Wertland which said that on ac
count of the faithlessness of the woman
friend he and his family had sought
death by drowning. Kaiser immediately
went to police headquarters with the
letter. Sergeant Ratgeu told him that
the body of the woman and her child
had been found drowned at the foot of
Fifth street dock, Hudson river, where
upon Kaiser went to the morgue and
identified the bodies. The little boy
was but five months old. Wertland's
body has not yet been found.
Striking and Starving Cloak
makers Intimidate Their Suc
New York, July 3.— A mob of strik
ing cloakmakers, numbering not less
than 200 persons, assembled in front of
the firm of Meyer & Jonason on Broad
way and the Mercantile Cloak company,
884 Broadway, and set upon . the opera
tives who are* working in those places
shortly before 8 o'clock this morning.
For half an hour or so there was an in
cipient riot on the busy thoroughfare,
but the mob ; was dispersed .by
the police. Several persons were
slightly hurt but none seriously
and no arrests were made. Abraham
Rosenberg and a crowd of about thirty
other striking tailors visited the tailor
ing shop of Samuel Dillet, of 192 El
dridge street, this forenoon and began
an indiscriminate attack upon Dillett,
his wife and the workmen in the shop.
Dillett defended himself with his re
volver. He fired into the crowd and
shot Rosenberg in the back, inflicting a
serious and probably fatal wound.
Rosenberg was removed to the Gouv
erneur hospital, and a coroner has been
summoned "to take Rosenberg's ante
mortem statements.

They Cannot Acquire Real Es
tate in lowa by Inheritance.
Dcs Moines, 10., July 3.— Judge Kav
anagh, of the Polk county district court,
has rendered a decision to the effect
that an alien can acquire by inheritance
no right or interest to real estate in
lowa. On the 10th day of September,
1889, Barnard Calian, a resident and cit
izen of lowa, died in this county, leav
ing a small amount of personal property
and several parcels of real estate. He
left no widow or children surviving
him, but several remote heirs in the
state of Massachusetts and several
others who are citizens and residents of
Great Britain, and claims were filed
against the estate, to the allow
ance of which the --foreign heirs
objected. The-. claimants contended,
that the foreign heirs had
no standing in court for the reason
that they are aliens, and their . objec
tions should not be heard. The court
coincided in this view. The law passed
by the twelfth general assembly pro
vides that non-resident aliens are: pro
hibited from acquiring title to, or taking
or holding, any lands or real estate in
this state *by descent, devise, purchase
or otherwise. But an alien may. acquire
and hold real property to the extent of
320 acres, or city property to the amount
of $10,000 in value; providing that,
within five years from the - date of the
purchase of such property, the same is
placed in the actual possession of a rel
ative of such purchaser, within third
degree of kindred, or the husband or
wife of such relative, and, further, that
such occupant become a naturalized citi
zen within ten years from the purchase
of said property.

many things having occurred there that,
although he had thought he was there
■ himself, he bad come to the conclusion
, that he yas not there \at all. Now, 1,
have so many. fresh memories '- of that
grand review that I think I; was there,
and I think that' review occupied three
days. The first day the Army "of the
Potomac .had the floor, and I was
upon ; ; the : stage ..at that time,
as lam now, taking notes of the posi
tions, that 1 might profit by them. For
If- you remember, the armies of the
West did not have a fair reputation for
order, drill and discipline. You \ got
your news of this through rebel sources,
and we chased them for 1,800 miles into
your very camps. ; They had not a .very;
good V opinion of our. .Western < armies,
: and we . found ■: that 7 even the ; author
ities at Washington had , not 7 a very
: good opinion of our western armies.
They thought we were rather liable to
; disorder. Now, I assure 7 you, 7 ray
friends of the Army of the Potomac, we ;
were a v better drilled army than you
were . 1 know it because I was their
commanding general. Now let me give
you .^a - 7 little . . bit of private his-,
tory, v, which I have not given
,to any 7 except my . most inti
mate friends. 1 was on that
stand before Meade ;. was, and, : indeed,
before ; President Johnson and the cab
inet had gotten there. . Meade ; came
with his staff, as you have heard de-:
; scribed, and as he wheeled into the gate
-of the White house "grounds," up came
Custer, 7 and " some 7 lady- flung ; him a
; . wreath— one of those circular , wreaths—
'; and ; in trying to get : it his mare made -
off with him and he 7
'A : ' \ -Went by Like a Shot.
- And Custer was not reviewed at . all.
He and his brigade .of - cavalry would
not have passed .muster on the Champ
; de Mars in Paris.*' The horses were good,
(he men ; were sublime, but \ not good
'looking .-. for review. „ Now .- four corps !
: passed i in succession, and the intervals
•between them were too large. : I kept my
eye upon them; and watched them all the ;
time. And the worst . mistake -ii the ,
'Army of the Potomac made was that
you had two bands 7 loaned you by stay
at-homes 7 in : Washington. ■'■- There were .
those i elegant 7 bands, designed to play \
music of the highest order and the *• lat
est operas, v You could not understand ;
them, and .-I • don't : ; blame you for it.
You did not keep step. Now the first
duty of a soldier , is 7 to : keep ' step ; and
dress right,and keep his eyes to the fronts
Now, a good many, of them turned their
eyes g and S heads f around*, like ' country ;
gawks, looking at the big people on the
stand. « These ; are > little ' things. You .
know there are tricks in - every *. trade,
, my 9 young -7 friends v tricks *in war, as ■
> well ■-as- in - peace. I turned to Meade
'and said: "1 am afraid my poor volun
teer corps will make '7 a : poor ; appear
ance -' contrasted ': with > your ;-. well-fed
men." : And Meade .- says: : "Well,
: Sherman, * ! - the 7. people : in 7: Washing- :
; ton? are --bow /■-. so ■■-' well disposed ".,; to
ward 7 the I army - that "■ they will 7 make ;
all allowance. You need not be afraid."!
Well, : that v evening , I got •■■ word , -from
Gen. Auger - saying if l I wanted those
two bands;!- could have them; I said:
."Thank you. 1 think I will stick to my
old bands," and I sent : word that night
to 7 all _ my 7 corps commanders 7to .be
careful v about Intervals, according
to tactics, and keep your
dress to :v left, . towards the reviewing
stand, and don't let your men 7be look
, ing . around over 7 shoulders. We *js*ill
give them plenty of time to see the cap
itol, and see everything after the review
is over. Let them keep their eyes 7 fif
teen paces to the front, shoulders square
and march in .
The Old Accustomed Way.
They did so.- Well, after the review
ng was over, I guess your review was
over, but mine was not. The* two 7 con
stituted a thing of magnificent propor
tions, creditabie7 to both. As to the pa
triotism within their hearts, as to the
principles which - moved those great
. masses ot men to a common " pur
pose, we need not* speak, . ; because
historyhas treated of it .for twenty-five
years. But upon the simple question of
instruction and discipline we: can take
lessons to the 7 very last day of our
lives. .Now Gen. Walker, for whom I
have great affection as well as profound
respect, did not give an account of the
cost in human- life in furnishing that
bold cavalry, nor the great' corps
that furnished the war with muscle
and brain. I do believe, as 1 do believe in
Him who rules over us, that ; this coun
try spent one thousand millions of dol
and. one hundred thousand precious
lives to teach them the art of war. Now.
let your children digest these thoughts
well and give credit to all alike, and re
member 7: this' country extends
over the . continent and is l not
confined to one part, and that there are
good people everywhere." Hon. Han
nibal Hamlin was then called for and
was greeted with three cheers. He
spoke briefly, thanking the society for
the reception and expressing pleasure
in being present. Gen. 0.0. Howard
was the next speaker, and was followed
by Gen. Devens in an eloquent speech
of some length,; paying a high tribute
to Gen. Walker, the orator •' of the
day. Admiral . Gherardi addressed the
society briefly. Gen. Fitz John Porter

.-, Washington, July 3.— The president
signed the act for the admission of Idaho
as a state at 10 o'clock this morning.
In signing the bill admitting Idaho to
the sisterhood of states this morning the
president has disappointed a number of
people in that state who had. hoped
that the new state would take up her
position in line on the Fourth of July.
The reason for his action was an inter
esting one. The president, it seems,
found that the law ordained that a new
star should be placed upon the Ameri
can flag for each new state on *.' the
Fourth of July succeeding its admission
to the Union. The president left it to
Mr. Dubois, the delegate from Idaho,
to decide whether to have the bill
signed at once and . get the star, or
leave the star over until July 4, 1891.
Mr. Dubois chose the star now, and,' as
a; result, the bill has been signed and
forty-three stars are to be put upon the
flag to-morrow.
The Idaho . admission bill, which to
d\y became a law, declares the present
territory of Idaho to be a state and rati
fies the constitution framed by the con
vention of July 4, 1887, and adopted at
the - election in the following
November. The state is de
clared : entitled : to " one repre
sentative in congress until after the
census is taken. The usual. grants of
sections 16 and 36 of public lands in
each township for the support ; of com
mon schools; of fifty sections for pub-,
lie buildings; of 5 per cent of the pro
ceeds of the sales of public lands to con
stitute a permanent school fund is made,
and the state confirmed in its title
to seventy-two sections of land
granted the territory; for a university
and to the lands on which the peniten
tiary at Boise City is situated. For the
support of an agricultural college 90,000 '■
acres of land are granted; :< 100,000 acres
for a scientific school 100,000 acres for
state normal schools; 50,000 acres for the
insane asylum ,at Blackfoot; 50,000 ; for
'the. state university at Moscow, 50,000
for the Boise City penitentiary, and
150.000 acres for other -. state,-charitable, -
. educational . and .;•• reformatory >- institu
tions, none of the lands to be sold for
less than s lift; an „ acre. 7; General lauds
are *£ excepted ; : ;- from '>"*?,": the giants
made. An appropriation;: of $25,000
is made to defray the; expenses,
of the constitutional convention. The
state is made a judicial district to be
attached to the Ninth circuit court to;
be held at thecapitol. The usual court
officers 7 are ":• to .* be appointed and
proper ; provisions . made ; for trans
fer of suits. 7 The state v constitu
tion which :-;'': is :,: ratified by the
act contains a special" provision prohib
iting polygamy and declaring that no
person shall be entitled to vote, to hold
office or to serve as a juror who is a
bigamist or a polygamist, or who prac
tices or encourages plural marriages,
or is a 7 member of or countenances
any .-•- organization which teaches
such. * doctrines. The state has a
Mormon test oath which is required of
voters, and it was not until the supreme
court upheld its constitutionality that
the bill was considered by the; .senate,
territories committee, In the house the
Democrats refrained from voting, and
asserted an intention to make a test
on this bill of the speaker's right to
count a quorum.
Boise City, Idaho, July 3.— The long
looked-I'or news of statehood was re
ceived here Tuesday afternoon, directly
after the passage by the senate of the
Idaho ; admission bill. The people in
all parts of; the state are jubilant and
are now celebrating, lv Boise, the per
manent capital, all business was sus
pended upon receipt of the news, and a
general celebration was commenced
which will be continued till the Fourth,
when the president is expected to : sign
the bill. Delegate Dubois, chairman of
the Republican state committee, has;
.telegraphed a call for a meeting of the
Republican committee the. lsth inst. at

The Admission Bill Lacks a Few
Finishing Touches.
Washington, D. C, July 2.— The
senate amendment to the Wyoming ad
mission bill would have been concurred
in to-day by the house had a quorum
been present. The point of rio ; quorum
was made,' arid Mr. Cannon, of Illinois,
appealed •to the house to permit the
adoption of the conference report on
the District of Columbia appropriation
bill and concurrence in the amendment
to the Wyoming bill without the point :
of no quorum being raised, say
ing he would move an adjourn
ment immediately , thereafter. The
house, however, . adjourned with
out action. ' The Wyoming act' was en
rolled ready for the signatures of the
presiding officers, and it was believed
that had the house adopted the amend
ment day the president would have
approved the act before leaving the city.
Delegate Carey, of Wyoming, said this
evening that - the amendment concern-:
ing the Yellowstone Park had already '
delayed the admission ; of Wyoming for
a number of days, bvt the park was the
wonderland of the world and would be
worth many world's fares to the state in
■ the next century," and under the circum
stances the people would patiently, wait •
a 1 few days more -for the realization of •
their great ambition.

Plumb Wants to Cinch the Union
Pacific Railroad.
Washington, July 3.— the senate
this morning messages from the presi
dent were presented as to Indian lands
in Kansas, as to postal and cable com
munication between the United States
and the Latin-American states, as to
the celebration of^he Fourth centennial
of the discovery of America, and as to
the agreement between the Cherokee
commission and the lowa Indians in the
Indian territory. Mr. Plumb offered a
resolution, which was agreed to, calling
upon the secretary of war for informa
tion as to whether articles were
being manufactured at the na
tional military homes in competi
tion with private - enterprises, and
the reason and authority for it. Mr.
Plumb also offered a resolution calling
on the secretary of the interior to in
form the . senate whether he has any
knowledge of the guarantee, actual or
proposed, by the Union Pacilic Railroad
company of the bonds or stock of any ;
other corporation, more especially those
of the Oregon Navigation company, audi
of the Denver & South Park Railroad
company; whether the Union Pacifio
Railroad company has paid out of Its
surplus earnings or otherwise, the in
debtedness, or any part thereof of those
or other companies, and if so whethes
such guarantee or poyment, or both, is
in accordance with law, and consistent
with the obligations of the Union Pa
cific Railroad company to the United
States; and the secretary is directed to
communicate all information in the pos
session of his department in this matter.
This led to an animated debate between
Messrs. Edmunds and Butler in re
gard to the failure of the senate to
consider the report of the select com
mittee on Pacific railroads. Mr. Butler
ami Mr. Vest both expressed a warm
desire to have the matter taken up, and
in response to Mr. Edmunds' suggestion
that at least one of these railways had
deliberately. disobeyed the injunctions
of the Thurmad act, Mr. Butler said
that the senator from Vermont would
get the information which he sought on
this subject by a discussion : of the re
port of the select committee which had
investigated the question. The"resolu
tion was; agreed 1 , to. j Mr-Berry sent to
■the desk to be 'read- papers concerning
the charges that unusual facilities were
afforded a • firm, of ■■'.Washington, at
torneys in the land -7 office.-. -They
included; a " letter • sent by the
attorneys (H. W. Combs A Co.) to
the clerk of Columbia county. Ark.,
offering to supply patents in that
county for $4 each (the clerk to retain •
$1); a letter from Acting .Commissioner:
Stone, extending these facilities to the
firm, and a letter from Assistant Secre- .
tary Bussey, of the interior department,
certifying to the reputable character of
the firm. Mr. Berry said that one mem
ber of the firm, Thomas H. McKee, was
an officer of the house of representa
tives. The question was discussed
without action. The senate bill to es
tablish a court to settle private laud
claims was discussed until 2 p. m.,whea
Mr. Vest resumed his argument against
the subsidy bill. At the conclusion of .
Mr. Vest's address the senate adjourned
until Monday.
