"JULIAN CLAIMS THE FORFEIT MON

FITZ THEN HAS A PIT OF ANGER
And Declares the Fight Entirely Off,
But Negotiations Fix It Up
EL PASO, Tex., Feb. 17.— The fi^ht
$vas on and off and on again, all within
the space of thirty minutes this aft
ernoon. It is now definitely set for
Friday, and Buck Connolly has agreed
to post for Maher $1,000 additional for
feit, if his man is not in the ring to !
fight on that day. Julian made every j
possible concession, and finally turned
the whole matter over to a committee i
of five, all of whom were to be named j
by Connolly.. If this committee decided !
that he was not entitled to the forfeit,
he would agree to wait until Friday, !
and have the fight then. The commit- i
tee decided against him, and Julian
gave in accordingly. The conference I
was originally set for 10 o'clock. Stuart
was the only one present at that time.
After waiting a few minutes he went
away and did not show up again until
I o'clock. Meantime Julian and Con
nolly camwe, but made no headway in
the matter of an agreement. When
Stuart returned, the conference opened.
Julian and Fitzsimmons demanded the
$1 000 forfeit and announced that no
further negotiations would be consid
ered till that was paid.
"I wil pay no forfeit. I will take my
man and go to the ring to keep you out
of the forfeit," said Connolly, ignoring
the fact that Maher was at Las Cruces,
forty miles away, with no chance of
getting to El Paso before tomorrow
morning. -. - ;^ r - : :.
"All right," said Julian, "get him and
"The rings are ready," said Stuart,
""any time you gentlemen are ready."
"Will Maher fight if he gets to the
ringside?" asked Julian.
"No, he won't," replied Connolly. "He
Is in no shape to fight and I will not
take the chances of losing all the money
my friends have bet on him."
"You are not on the level, that's
what's the. matter with you," shouted
Fitzsimmons. "You know we are enti
tled to that money and you are trying
to beat us out of it."
"Why didn't you pay your forfeit
money to Corbett?" asked Connolly.
"Pay money to Corbett! that bloody
cur," ejaculated - Fitzsimmons. "Be
cause he had no right to it. If he had,
he'd have reached for it pretty quick, I
can tell you. But suppose I do agree
to wait until Friday, how ,do I know I
will get the $1,000 if Maher don't show
•up?"* ' :■: '• . *"" ;l
"I'll guarantee it," said Connolly.
FITZ USES CHOICE ENGLISH.
"What good is that to me?" said Fitz
simmons. "I was guaranteed $40,000
when I licked Jim Hall, but I never got
it. You don't want to fight" and you
: never did want to. Your man is not
.ready to fight and he is afraid to fight.
He is out of condition because he is
afraid. . You are a whole pack of bloody
curs." \'l~. '"
"I'm no more of a cur than you are,
Fitzsimmons,". said Connolly, rising
from his seat.* "You are a bloody cur,
and I'll bet $1,000 that Julian can lick
you in one round."
"You're no good. It's all off," shouted
.Fitzsimmons, turning to the crowd,
"These fellows are not on the level,
and I will have -nothing to do with
them. I won't fight unless I get the
forfeit that belongs to me. It's all
off, I tell you," and, -wild with rage,
Fitzsimmons broke from the room and
went into the street. .•,'i.v.v'
After a moment Connolly wanted
to know if Julian would fight under
any circumstances. Julian said it was
a matter he would discuss after the
question of forfeit had been settled.
He was justly entitled to the forfeit,
but, that there might be no question
of his sincerity, he " would leave the
matter to any ten or five men Con
nolly himself might name. Connolly
said: "Let Stuart name them."
Julian acquiesced. Stuart named
George Siler, Louis Houseman, of Chi
cago; William W. Naughton, of San
Francisco; Tom O'Rourke, New York,
and Hugh Fitzgerald, Houston, Tex.
Some one suggested that Dan Stuart
act as chairman of the committee, and
Julian again • agreed. He lighted a
cigarette and tilted back in his chair
as the committee repaired to the rear
room. Some one went for Fitzsim
mons, who soon crowded his way in.
He was still angry and profane. ."
--"I won't fight," he said. "They are
all a lot of Welshors. I've been fooled
and fiddled for all I'll stand. Then
he strode out, closing the partition
door with a bang. As he got out
" side he turned and shouted to Con
nolly: "You're not on the level. Your
bloomin' big stiff is afraid to fight.
I'll fight anybody, that other big duf
fer, Jim Corbett, or any one, bare
knuckles or gloves. But this thing is
off. It's not square.". ;. J : -
As - Fitzsimmons disappeared the
committee came - in. Houseman an
nounced the decision. It was that the
articles of December were void last
Friday. Under the circumstances and
the understanding at that time, the
forfeit money need not be paid."
"Will your man be ready to fight
Friday?" Julian asked.
Connolly said he would. Connolly
paid he would turn the $1,000 in the
hands of the stakeholder over to Stu
art and put up . another $1,000 this aft
ernoon, guaranteeing their appearance

KLESER AVAS UNLUCKY.
Defeat in the First Game of the Bil
The Twin City billiard tournament opened at
the West hotel in Minneapolis last evening
with a game for 105 points between H. Liver
man and Adam Kleser, which resulted In the
defeat of the latter by a score of 165 to 154.
Liverman is no novice in the art of controlling
his ball, and plays a very rapid game. It was
not his first meeting with Kleser, who wrested
the championship of the state of Wisconsin
from him in 1869. The two met again for the
championship of that state two years later,
and after a hotly contested game Liverman
won by a small margin.
The tournament continues for one week in
Minneapolis, and will be finished in St. Paul
during next week.
This evening, at the West, Frank Billiter
and Charles Capen will take the cues against
each other, and a hot game is expected. Mr.
Capen, the congenial manager of the West's
billiard hall, is expected to do some pretty
work at the table.

HE WAS OUTPOINTED EASILY.
IN THE "LAST BOUT 3IALLETT HAD
'EVERYTHING HIS OWN
REFEREE KASTEN IS SCORED
By Post Friends, but the French
Fencer Takes His Medicine
Like a Man.
Prof. E. Postel, of Minneapolis, made
an unsuccessful attempt to wrest the
fencing championship of the North
west from A. B. Mallett, of St. Paul,
last night. The contest took place at
the gymnasium of the Minnesota Ath
letic club, In the Drake block, and was
witnessed by 200 fencing enthusiasts.
With the exception of the last two
minutes of the last bout, the contest I
was thrilling. At that time Postel
gave out and his opponent made a
dozen points with but little opposition.
Mallett won by a score of 18—11. The
contest was given under the Ameri
can rules, with three five-minute bouts
and a rest of two minutes between
each. Mallett made an admirable
thrust at the instant time was called
for the first bout, scoring a point.
This put Postel upon his mettle, and
the rest of the bout was an excellent
exhibition pf the art, abounding in sen
sational thrusts and counters. .Each
man made two points, leaving the
score 2—3 in favor of Mallett. Postel
was the aggressor all through the sec
ond bout and made two points to his
opponent's one. The latter made but
few thrusts, and the Minneapolis man
was picked for the winner when time
was called. Mallett was unable to do
anything during the first three minutes
of the last bout. He made but few at
tempts to touch. His opponent seemed
sure of victory and made point after
point with apparent ease. At the end
of the third minute Postel had made
seven points and Mallett two. But
the former was unable to hold out, and
offered practically no opposition dur
ing the next two minutes, and the
dozen points made by Mallett won
him the contest.
Postel was at one time champion of
Paris, and most of the contests in
which he has engaged have been given
under the French rules. For several*
years he has devoted his time to teach
ing and has not contested for ears.
This combination of disadvantages was
the cause of his defeat last night.
Mallett has held the professional
championship of the Northwest for sev
eral years. The amateur champion
ship is held by a Chicago fencer.
Postel's seconds were F. R. Leroux,
C. W. Bennett; Mallett's were P. C.
and H. C. Hirschy; referee, A. C.
Kasten; timekeeper, Otto Dreher. The
referee's position in a fencing contest
is at no time an enviable one, and
Postel's seconds were loud in their
claims of Kasten's alleged unfairness.
The principal himself, however, re
fused to enter a protest and acknowl
edged a fair defeat. /:■
Previous to the contest a short pro
gramme was given. J. A. Shields gave
a clever, exhibition of juggling, fol
lowed by a turn of fancy bag punch
ing by George O'Brien. He is certain
ly an adept at this work and was re
peatedly encored. A. W. Shaw, of
Minneapolis, did some creditable work
in fancy club swinging. Prof. A. F.
Kasten entertained the spectators with
an exhibition of muscular contraction,

Crawford Livingston Doesn't Intend
to Leave St. Paul.
Crawford Livingston said yesterday
that there was no truth in the report
that, as soon as he had severed his
connection with the gas company, he
would leave St. Paul for the East, v
"No," said Mr. Livingston to a
Globe reporter, "I'm not going to
leave. I'm going to loaf. I've been
very, busy for many years, and I think
it's time I took a little rest. I haven't
the slightest idea of quitting St. Paul.
I'll be out of the gas company within
a few. days, and Mr. McMillin will, of
course, be elected in my place. Then
I'll have a chance to rest a while."
"Your predictions in the Globe
that the bond Issue would be sub
scribed for several times over seemed
to be well founded, weren't they?"
Mr. Livingston smiled. "Now, come
to think of it," he answered, "I be
lieve what I told the Globe when
the secretary of the treasury first is
sued his circular turned out about
right. You recall that I was almost
the only man the Globe reported
who hadn't any doubt as to the suc
cess of the new loan. Yes, I discussed
the matter about that time with one of
the leading capitalists of St. Paul. He
told me, privately, that he didn't' be
lieve the scheme would be a success.
He thought It was a dangerous ex
periment. But I explained to him,
just as I did to the Globe a little
later, that up to that time even in
the .midst of panics there had always
been a steady home market for vari
ous municipal bonds issued by reliable
'cities, and the rate of interest had
usually been about 3% per cent. But
just before the new loan was an
nounced the brokers who deal in these
municipal bonds suddenly found them
selves without a market, and, in their
anxiety to get rid of ther stock, they
began sending to every one who might
invest circulars offering to sell such
bonds at prices that would net 4 per
cent or more. I got dozens of these
circulars, and I concluded that the
usual purchasers of municipal bonds
were simply hoarding their money in
order to invest in the national loan.
I told my friend this, but he wasn't
convinced. He had been dealing all
his life in railroad bonds, and, as I
said to him, he wasn't familiar with
other Issues, especially municipal se
curities, v .*;"■
"But. after all, although I consider
a popular loan an excellent thing un
der any other circumstances, it seems
to me that, inasmuch as the, sole ob- :
ject of the last loan was to replenish
the gold reserve and to maintain it as
long as possible, it would have been
better If the government had dealt
directly with a syndicate even at low
er figures. If, for instance, a syndicate
had been allowed to take the bonds
at 107 and had agreed to secure all or
even one-half the gold from abroad,
and had also agreed to maintain the
full reserve of $100,000,000 for: a cer
tain length of time after securing the
bonds, why. then I think the govern
ment would have been better off. It
would have effectually accomplished
its main object of restoring and main
taining the reserve, and would have
secured a large amount of the gold
that has been sent abroad. *;i As it ; is,

A WONDERFUL SIGHT I
Thousands of People Avail Them
selves of the Generosity of the
Kickapoo Indian Medicine
All day long yesterday hundreds of
people, representing all classes in life, .
thronged the office » of ~ the St. Paul
Globe in response to the advertise
ment stating that every one who called
there would receive free a bottle ;of
Kickapoo Indian Oil. r Many hundreds
availed themselves 'of this opportunity
who had no immediate need for this
medicine, but who, having learned of
the wonderful curative powers of the
rare and costly oils ' of ' which it is made,
took the opportunity to procure a bot
tle for future emergencies. Others
grasped the opportunity to get relief
from temporary pain, J and in many in
stances the rapidity with which this
medicine always acts was fully dem
A poorly but neatly dressed woman,
evidently suffering; severely with neu
ralgia in her face, asked for a bottle,
and then made inquiries as to how she
should use it. She did not wait to
leave the office before applying the
Kickapoo Indian Oil, and the smile of
relief which illuminated her face al
most immediately was convincing to
the many onlookers that she was sure
ly rid of her suffering. Upon experi
encing such wonderful relief she step
ped again to the counter and begged
another bottle, stating that her hus
band had been flat on his back for six
weeks with Rheumatism, and added
that she had during that time been
the sole support of her family. Al
though the original intention was to
give but one bottle to a person, under
the circumstances an appeal like this
could not be refused, and the woman
left the office happy in the anticipa
tion of relieving her husband from
pain as quickly as she herself had been
helped, promising to return and let her
benefactors know the result. ,
Another incident which was rather
amusing was the case of a small
urchin not over twelve years old who
begged that some one would apply
some of the Kickapoo Indian Oil to
his ear which had been hurting him,
he said, as long as he could remember.
He evidently had great faith in the
medicine, for a look of disappointment
came over his face when he found the
minute it touched his skin the pain
did not cease. This, however, was rap
idly followed by the most intense look
of delight when.within two minutes, he
found himself relieved from his tor
menting earache. Carefully corking
the" bottle he departed, first asking,
however, whether it would be a good
thing for "me little brother, who is
getting some teeth."
Notwithstanding the storm yesterday
2,065 people availed themselves of the
offer, and the agents of the Kickapoo
Indian Medicine company will undoubt
edly be kept busy r for the rest of .their
stay in town, as the fame of their
wonderful medicine is rapidly spread
ing, and many others will grasp the op
portunity to procure a bottle of their
precious Kickapoo- Indian Oil as a pres

SUMMIT AVENUE BRIDGE.
Railroad Company Will Submit a
The assembly committee on streets
considered, a number of matters at its
regular meeting ; yesterday afternoon,
but spent most of its time discussing
a resolution requiring the Milwaukee
railroad to -build a steel and Iron
bridge over its tracks at the Summit
avenue crossing in place of * the pres
ent wooden structure, which is only •
forty-two feet in width, while Summit
avenue at this point is 120 feet wide,
according to the statement of the city
engineer. There were present besides
the. committee Assistant General Su- j
perintendent H. R. Williams, of the j
Chicago & Milwaukee * road; . Judge
Chandler, the general agent of the
road for the Northwest; Attorney
Squires and Aid. Markham, the au
thor of the resolution. .
Aid. Markham explained his object
in offering the resolution, which the
board of aldermen has already passed.
Nearly three years ago a similar reso
lution had passed the assembly, and
was then laid over by the committee
on streets of the board of aldermen.
At the beginning of 1894 the railroad
people brought in a petition asking
for a delay of one year. In view of the
hard times the matter was laid over
until June, 1894. Then the present
council came inland nothing has been
"My objections to the present
bridge," continued Aid. Markham, "are
that it is an old, unsightly structure,
more or less dangerous : and much too
narow in view of the width of the
street. The property owners on
Summit avenue have spent a
good deal of money in improving
boulevarding and beautifying this
thoroughfare, which is now the pride |
of the city, and I maintain that the !
time has now arriyed when a suitable
bridge should be built at this point." j
City Engineer Rundlett, in reply to
Attorney Squires, said that the pres
ent bridge was safe, and that he had
not heard any question . raised as to
the capacity of the bridge to accom
modate the travel.' The bridge is forty
two feet in width, J containing two six
teen-foot driveways, J and two five-foot
Assistant General -Superintendent
Williams,, on behalf of the railroad
company, admitted that during the
past few months the earnings .of the
road had materially 'increased, but
that the company did not consider
that there was any immediate need of
a new bridge at the point proposed.
The bridge was not a handsome struc
ture, but it was safe and ample to ac- i
commodate travel If the bridge were
not. safe the road would not hesitate
to build another. '■■'' *
Aid. Markham said that the Mil- \
waukee road had never admitted its
liability to construct the bridge on
Summit avenue, and he would like to
ask Mr. Squires if the road conceded j
such . a liability. Mr. Squires answered
that . the question was a broad one.
He thought, however, that as long as
the bridge was safe and adequate
there was a question as to the liabil
ity of the road to build a new bridge.
Finally the committee decided to lay
the matter over for four weeks, and
Instructed ,the city attorney to look up
the question of the liability of the rail
road company. At the end of the four
weeks the railroad ■ company Is to sub
mit a proposition. ; -''"-• v ;
The final ; order for paving Tenth
street, from St. Peter to " Wabasha

The old hospital association turns
over its property to the new associ
ation, which will assume the debt.
The new dispensary Is now duly in
corporated in legal form and can now
under the law for the first time hold
property. As soon as sufficient money
can be raised to pay the indebtedness of
about $3,000 on the property, mostly in
the shape of taxes and assessments, the
property owned by the old medical col
lege, which was originally bought for
$21,000, the stockholders have agreed
to donate the property to the new dis
pensary* incorporation. Nothing can
yet be done in the way of raising this
money until some sort of a meeting can
be called and the details of surrender
ing the stock can be legally arranged.

COUNCIL : METETING.
Nothing New or Sensational to Come
The regular meeting of the board of alder
men, to be held tonight, does not promise
anything sensational or new. The lighting
question has been temporarily disposed of,
the market house schemes are in abeyance,
and the garbage question has subsided.
Nevertheless, , there is . likely ', to be another
dispute over the salaries of tho police force.
Tonight the board will be confronted by the
assembly . resolution fixing the salaries ac
cording to the original schedule submitted
by Chief Clark. This resolution was adopted
as an amendment -to that of the board of
aldermen, which reduced. the salaries of the
officers only, and never touched the compen
sation ,of the patrolmen. _ The latter resolu- ;
tion, which was fathered :by Aid.' Brady, 'was :

considered unfair and unreasonable by the
assembly, and hence the substitution there
for of the resolution calling for a general re
duction, which, if adopted, means that the
patrolmen will hereafter receive $70 Instead
of $75 a month.
The pay roll of the fire department, which
the board at its last meeting referred back
to the flre board, may not be returned to
night owing to the absence from the city of
some of the flre commissioners. But when
the pay roll Is sent to the council for the
second time It will be the document already
submitted. The commissioners first arranged
the scale of reductions, and, having sole
power to fix the salaries of the firemen, they
say they will not permit the council to dic
tate to them in the matter.

J. M. CarlMOn Charge* an Ex-Em
ploye With Forgery.
J. M. Carlson, a contractor, doing
business at 154 West Fourth street,
said yesterday that he probably would
take steps today to procure the arrest
! of his former bookkeeper, J. A. Ry
j lander, whom he charges with forging
his name to three checks aggregating
$25.20. When he so informed a reporter
for the Globe yesterday, he was
talking to N. P. Lundstrum, a saloon
keeper, at 457 St. Peter street, who ex
hibited a check on the Union bank for
$7.20, made payable to C. A. Rylander,
purporting to have been drawn by J.
M. Carlson. Lundstrum said he had
cashed it for Rylander Thursday
morning. When the check had been
returned to Mr. Carlson he pronounced
it a forgery and immediately suspect
ed Rylander, whom he had discharged
two weeks ago, of being its author.
Suspecting also that his name might
have been used on other paper, Mr.
Carlson yesterday ordered all checks
made payable to or indorsed by Ry
lander, stopped, and set. about ascer
taining the extent of his former em
ploye's alleged crookedness. Two more
checks were found at the clearing
house, which Mr. Carlson declared to
be forgeries, though the imitation of
his signature was so perfect that he
was astonished at its seeming accu
racy. Both of the checks were drawn
I on the Union bank and purported . to
have been signed by Carlson. One
calling for $9, made payable to J. A.
Rylander, had been cashed by John
Boden. a druggist doing business at
Seventh and Pine streets, while the
other, calling for $10, payable to an A.
W. Anderson, had been presented by
a depositor whose name could not be
Mr. Carlson stated that Rylander
had entered his employ, highly recom
mended, last September, and though
he had several times noticed trifling
irregularities, he had not suspected
anything of a criminal nature until
two weeks ago, when he had sum
marily discharged his bookkeeper.
Rylander also acted as collector for
Carlson and it was in this capacity
that he was first suspected by his em
ployer, who said yesterday that he at
times failed to make proper returns
for his collections. Since discovering
the alleged forgeries, Mr. Carlson says
he has made searching inquiries re
garding Rylander's whereabouts, and
not being able to find him, is of the
opinion that he has left the city. Be
fore swearing out a warrant Mr. Carl
son and Mr. Lundstrum concluded to
delay action until today in order that
it might be ascertained if there was
any more of the paper in circulation.
Rylander, who Is about twenty-two
years old, is said to have originally
come from Wisconsin, where his fam
ily Is thought to reside at present.

was only partially dressed, threw her
dress over Nellie's face and together
they went through the flames. Lottie's
hair was burned completely off when
she reached the sidewalk, but Nellie
was burned only about her bare arms.
They were taken home.

MARTIN'S FERRY, 0., Feb. 17.— The Buck
eye glass works were destroyed by fire this
morning. The works were to have started
up today with non-union hands. The fire
was of incendiary origin, and the building
was doubtless set on flre to prevent the re
sumption. Several previous attempts had
been mado to burn the big works. It was
owned by A. D. Scamon, of Wheeling, and
was worth $150,000. -The fire was discovered
at 1 o'clock by Night Watchman Stewart.
