Minneapolis, Minn., March B.—Dun can 15. Harrison is doing all the talking for Sullivan today. Sullivan himself will not say a word about the Corbett challenge. Harrison was seen at the West this morning, and said he •would talk for .John. He was asked what Sullivan proposed to do about Corbett's challenge. "Oh, that's all a bluff,'.' was the reply. "Yes, but the moneys up. That is pretty nearly business, is it not?" ••Well, Corbett will net all the chance lie wants in good time, but the man we ■re after now is Mitchell. The terms of John's ultimatum are before Mitch ell. Now, let us see wiiat he will do." "Well, Brady offers $5,000 forfeit for Corbett. If Sullivan thinks Jim is such a mark he ought to take that in some night after the show." "We are, as 1 have said, dealing with Mitchell now. 1 When we are through with him, there will be time enough to engage these other fellows. None of them want to tight, anyhow. They are all fakirs.'' PUT UP Oil SHUT UP. Mitchell and Slavin Throw in An other Shot. Buffalo, N. V., March B.— Charley Mitcheii and Frank P. Slavin were seen this morning and asked their intentions in regard to Sullivan's reply to Mitchell's ultimatum. Mitchell seemed nonplussed and asked the interviewer «s to the best course possible. "My ultimatum presented my case pre cisely," he said. "Mv money is up and now we wait for Sullivan to put up his money. lam ready to light Sullivan at any time. There is no reason why this newspaper talk should be continued. 1 am determined to fight." Slavin said: "Let Sullivan put up the money. Mine is posted." The pugilists left Buffalo . for Toronto today. CARROLL'S CAJOLERY. Pitz's Trainer and Manager in for Big Money. New Orleans, March B.— The news cabled from London iast night that Ted Plitchard was willing to light Fit/.sim rnons in America in ten weeks caused much interest among sport ing men and the general public here. The negotiations for a match be tween Sullivan and Mitchell may inter fere somewhat with a light between Pritchard and Fitzsimmons; but, if the big match is not made, the middle weights will surely meet next fall, if not sooner. Jimmy Carroll, speaking for I'it/.siinmons. said today: "Bob is ready to meet Pritchard at any time, He will talk business and make a matc^h when ever he is ready; but it is my judgment that it would be profitable to | wait until next Mardi Gras. The Sulli van-Mitchell tight will take place in tlie fall, and it would not do to have an other fight so soon upon its heels. The objection to a light in ten weeics is the warm weather, when the city is dull. If a match is made for next year, the Olympic club will enlarge its arena, and there will be room for 15,000 people. More than that number will want to see the fight. But we are ready to talk tight with Pritchard at any time, as Fitz wants to meet the Englishman. He won't offer any serious objection as to the time for the match." DIXOVS dignity: The Colored Boy Asserts It— Fight Prospects. Buffalo, N. XV. March S.— George Dixou, the colored bantamweight, who arrived in town with ■ his company last night, was refused dinner with white folks in the Geut'see hotel today. As he had eaten breakfast with Slavin and Mitchell in the same room this morning, he and his manager protested so lustily that the manager of the hotel backed down and withdrew the color line. - Dixon was asked last night as to his plans for another fistic battle. lie re plied that his backer, O'Rourke, was negotiating for a match with Fred Johnson, of England. The Olympic club, of New Orleans, offers a purse of •*S,<KX), but Dixon said lie would not fitrht there, as the color line is drawn too strongly. He preferred the Cali fornia club. If Johnson objects to com ing to America, Dixon is ready to go to England, if the match with Johnson should fall through, Dixon will meet Van Heest at IJ7 pounds, the men to weigh in at the ringside. TWO QUAKER CLUBS. The Eastern League to Put in a Nine. Philadelphia, March B.— ln all like lihood there will be two clubs in Phila delphia the coming season, and both will play on the ground of the Phila delphia league club and under the national agreement. Some time airo some Philadelphia capitalists bought the original Athletic charter at a judg ment sale, and immediately proceeded to perfect an organization. The new organization received its legal papers today, and has been capitalized at §50.. 000. The new club will enter the East ern league, which will organize at Rochester tomorrow. Col. John I. Rogers, of the Philadel phia league club, told a reporter tonisrht that he favored the new club provided that it would bind itself to do nothing, either now or In the future, that would prove antagonistic the National agree ment clubs. As a guarantee of good faith the new club will deposit with the Philadelphia club a majority of its stock as a guarantee of its willingness to live up to any condi tions that the local league officials may stipulate. C. D. White, the moving spirit of the Eastern association, believes that the successful establishment of his or ganization is in great part depend enu upon the admission of Phila delphia into the circuit, and as a consequence he has used his best en deavors to win around the local league people. Mr. White has been given full authority to act for the proposed new club at tomorrow's meeting at Roches ter. The new club has ample financial backing mid an excellent lield from which to draw support. THtt ROOM WAS QUIET. No Betting at the Mercantile Ren dezvous. Chicago, March B.— Little enthusiasm was manifested at Frank Shaw's pool room tills afternoon when it was an nounced that old Marty 15 had galloped home in front of his lield through the slush at Gutteiibere. This lack of ani mation was chiefly due to the fact that lew. if any, of the "good people" were on hand: and the loungers that occu pied chairs In front of the blackboard were distinctly of the camp-fol lower order. The real spoils stayed away because they did not wish another ride at the city's expense, and the out at elbows crowd that sauntered aimlessly about the room did not send any mercantile tele grams, probably Cor reasons best known to themselves. Capt, Shea, in speaking of the subject, said: "If they had Attempted to do any bus iness today we would have raided the place; we had men there to watch and if they attempt to open again we will pursue the same course as that of yesterday. Of course, we will do nothing without at first having a piima facie case, and they were too funny to be caught napping today." TONIGHT'S GAiUU For the Globe Trophy— Notes of the Tourney. This evening the North Light team will play its linal game In the tourna ment for the Daily Globe emblem. The Nushka club will be their oppo nents. The North Lights are the only athletes that have been able to bowl down the Kegels, and tl ey expect to defeat the Nushkas, who were de feated by the Kegels. The North Light boys spent a goodly portion of yesterday in training at Folcy's and are iv prime condition for the fray. The Kegels, also, are persistent train ers, and it is this fact that instills confi dence in the probability of their winn ing the only game they yet have to play —the meeting with the Humors. The latter aggregation do not train at all. They only appear ou the alley when they have a game to play and cannot be expected to develoo their full prowers in that way. Had the Humors practiced as regular ly as the other teams, they would have ended the series with a much better percentage. It is ex pected they will go on the alley today and tomorrow, however, for club work, and possibly for a short time on Satur day. Their great battle with the Kegels will come off Saturday evening.

The appearance of this familiar head line immediately suggests to everybody the use of that popular medicine, Hood's Sarsapanlla, with which it is insepara bly connected by many years of use in advertising. There is no question but that at this season nearly everybody needs to take a reliable blood purifier to cleanse the system of impurities which have ac cumulated during the winter, and the popularity which Hood's Sarsanarllla has gained as a "spring medicine" is simply wonderful. Druggists say the sale of this remedy-is larger than that of any other in their stores, and in many cases exceeds the sale of all other sarsa parillas and blood purifiers combined. It is pertinent to inquire the reason for this great business which lias grown up s<> rapidly as to cause amazement throughout the retail and wholesale drug trade. Followed down to rock bottom, the fact seems to be that the success of Hood's Sarsapanlla rests upon the basis of absolute merit. The medicine has proven so generelly suc cessful for those complaints and dis eases for which it is advertised that it has won its way to the front among medicines. Of course liberal advertis ing has helped greatly, but many peo ple have learned to their sorrow that the most lavish expenditure in adver tising avails nothing if not backed up by merit in the goods. Thousands of our readers will take Hood's Sarsapanlla this season; and to those who have never tried it, we say take Hood's Sarsaparilla for a "spring medicine." .;■';'.;:" Ohio Shocked. Findlay, 0., March —A nitro-glyc erine magazine located two miles west of this city exploded at noon today and caused a shock all over Northwestern Ohio, as if from an earthquake.

Nebraska's Deposed Usurper Alleged to Meditate a Further Contest. New Jersey Democrats Are Wrathy at a Contemplat ed Steal. Dkxveb, Col., March 8. — Several Eastern papers iiave stated that Senator Teller's opposition to the renomination of President Harrison was because of a personal grievance. Today State Sen ator Steck received a lengthy letter from Mr. Teller in which he de fines his position ou the pres dential question. He opposes the renomination of Mr. Harrison, he say 3, "simply because 1 don't agree with him on his linancial policy as applied to sil- J ver, and not because of any personal feeling." He trusts that Colorado will Send delegates to Minneapolis who will vote against Mr. Harrison and for a candidate who favors the free and un limited coinage of silver. THAYER GONE DAFT. The Old Man Prevailed on to Fight Further. Lincoln, Neb., March B.— There is a rumor afloat here that everything has been arranged to reopen the Boyd- Thayer fight. Thayer never surren dered the office voluntarily, as ho has so strongly affirmed, but took tlie course that he did only upon the earnest solicitation of his friends. While his attorney, John L. Webster, has repeated that he never advised Thayer as to what course lie should pur sue, still, he told one of Mr. lioyd'sold appointees that they had him to thank that they got back into office thirty days sooner than they possiblyjcould had matters been allowed to take their natural course. While the greater part of the Repub lican leaders have been in favor of the i contest and were glad that Thayer at last submitted to reason and surren dered, still, thero has been a ling of political hotheads and barnacles that have continued to howl that Thayer made his only mistake wiien he turned over the office. After Thayer left for Texas, certain gentlemen wrote him asking to be allowed to continue the light in his name. It is said that ho refused. Since his return they have I been after him again, and have pre vailed upon him to continue the the contest. A prominent Repub lican at Lincoln approached one of the officers this morning and askedJiim to tell Gov. Boyd that everythine had been arranged fora reopening of the. case when the mandate arrives. The j papers have been drawn up and signed. DEMOCRATS EXCITED. Republicans Would Annul a Big Victory. Mount Holly, N. J., March B.— The Democrats carried Burlington county today by a large majority, but it looks now as though the Republican candi- I dates may get the offices. The en- 1 tire county is in a stale of excitement. Under the state law, it is claimed, not a single ballot was cast for a Democratic nominee. The ballots were not printed according to law. The trouble seems to have arisen through a misunderstand ing. When the law was passed three, years ago, it was so framed that il did not apply to township elections. By the present legislature, the law was so amended that it applied to every election in the state, whether general, county, or local. It will now devolve upon the county boards of elec tion to pass upon the legality of the bal lots. No matter what they may decide, the case will be carried to the courts and the constitutionality of the Wertz law, which has been in dispute, but never before tested, will be passed upon. _ _ Camdex, N. J., March 8.-The Re publicans made a clean sweep at the municipal election held here today, electing the mayor* and twenty-eight members ot the common council. There is not likely to be a single Democrat iv the board. „ Atlantic City, N. J., March B.— The Democrats in today's election carried the city and elected William Wright, former postmaster, mayor; William Riddle, assessor, and Michael Devine, collector of taxes. The Democrats will have a majority in the common council. The Democrats have carried nearly all townships iv Atlantic county. This city goes Republican. Elizabeth, N. J., March B —With the exception of Elizabeth, Rahway and Plaintield, elections for freeholders were held throughout Union county today. The freeholders of the above-named places are holdovers. From late returns it appears if Rah way goes Democratic, as is most likely, this will give the Democrats control of the next board and the officers by two majority. Should they lose Union the board will be a tie. FIiOVVER ON FRANCHISES. He Believes Some Corporations Are AVorthy. Albany, N. V., March B.— Gov. Flow er has sent to the legislature a message upon pending measures, and in it oc cur thpse words: "1 have no sympathy for that Immoderate concern for public interests which sees a bogy in every corporate enterprise of a public char acter; nor do 1 approve that wholesale denunciation of men and motives with which a well-meaning, but somewhat short-sighted and hysterical press evi dently considers it a duty to greet every corporate attempt to obtain municipal privileges." MERCIER DEFEATED. Elected Himself, but His Follow ers Not Id It. Momtueal, Que., March B.— The gen eral elections for the province of Quebec were held today, and a very heavy vote was polled. The Mercier party has sustained a most signal uefeat. At the close of the polls the vote stood 53 Cou servatives, 15 Mercierites, 5 Independ ents. All the cabinet ministers iv the De Boucherviile government have been rw >3lli Baking U^.JiPowu'er. Use Jin Millions of Homes— 40 Years tlie Standard j returned. Four members in the late I Mercier government were defeated, Mr. i Mercier himself was re-sleeted by 350 m ajority. Seventy-three members con stitute a full house in the ■ Quebec legislature. Mr. Mercier had a major ity in the old legislature of twenty eight. Omitting the Independents, Mr. De Boucherville's majority in the new house will be thirty-eight. The battle has been waged fiercely on both sides, each party straining every effort to effect • a victory. The clergy, usually a prominent fac tor in Quebec politics, maintained almost a neutral position in this cam paign, Mr. Mercier fought desperately, appealing to his followers to rebuke Lieut. Gov. Angers and crush the usurpers who had succeeded him in the administration of , the province. His appeal was, however, in vain and his yarty was hopelessly beaten. It was a Waterloo. Mercier saved him self from defeat, but- his lieutenants, the members of his late cabinet, were almost annihilated.* It is now nearly certain that Mercier will be forced to retire from the leadership of the Quebec Liberal party, in which a revolt against him had already been started, and give way to some one better calculated to restore harmony. Summed up briefly, the re sult of the election is a protest against the corruption and scandals that marked the . Mercier administration and a de mand for a cleaner government. CAN HEMP DO IT.? Alleged That Chicago's Mayor Is to Resign. • Chicago, March B.— lt is asserted on good authority that Hempstead Wash burne has concluded to perform an act which is unprecedented in the his tory of Chicaeo— to tender his res ignation as mayor at an early day. He has been considering the advisability of retiring from office since the Repub lican newspapers of the city began an united attack on him on account of his approval of the compressed-air ordi nance. A prominent city hall official, who is close to the mayor, said: "I have reason to be lieve that Mr. Washburne will re sign inside of thirty days. He can bear honest criticism of" his public actions, but he cannot stand the attacKS that are being made upon him. It is under stood that the only thing that keeps him from quitting the office at once is that he does not like to give any one a chance to say that ho ran away when the batteries were turned on him." THATCHER BEATEN. Congressman Tracey Defeats Him in a Club Election. Albany, N. V., March 8. — John Boyd Thatcher, world's fair commis sioner and once an ardent Cleveland man, but who became a Hill convert, was defeated last night for the presi dency of the Young Men's Democratic club, the leading political organization in the city, by Congressman Charles Tracey, a "Cleveland.

It has a spur track run ning through it, connecting it with all the railroads running into either city, except one, and also with the Minne sota Transfer. It is one of the few tracts left in the Midway Dis trict, accessible to good railroad trackage, large enough to accom modate a large manufacturing: con cern, and is therefore very valua ble. The . Midway District, trav ersed in every direction by railroads and electric lines, and drawing population and business from both cities, is rapidly filling up, and a few years will see . property" there quadrupled in value. It is bound in the near : future to become the great center of population of our dual city, and the owners of land there will be wealthy. We can sell this fine property very cheap. ODIN G.
