nna.ii not meet Jordan before
J*he Little Fighter Was Offered En
tlciiiK' Inducements to Go
Abroad, but He Didn't Care to
Make the Trip— Kid McCoy Gives
Ip the Wall Street Idea, and Par
chaxfN n Saloon on Broadway.
NEW YORK, Feb. 26.— Terry McGov
ern will not meet Ben Jordan on Derby
night at the National Sporting club, Lon
don. This decision was reached when Dr.
Ordway, the American representative of
the club, received a cable dispatch from
Matchmaker Bettinson calling all nego
tiations off.
About a month ago the club offered Me-
Govern enticing inducements to go
■abroad and meet Jordan. Knowing that
Terry would be a great drawing card,
owing to the fact that he defeated Pedlar
Palmer so quickly, he was to receive ex
ceptionally large expense money. Me-
Govern, however, refused to go across,
and the club cams to the conclusion that
j further dickering would be useless*. It
is doubtful whether Terry will ever get
a chance to box at the club again.
It is proposed to get a good American
pugilist to appear at the club on Derby
];Ight in place of Terry. An attempt
will be made to have the winner of the
Erne-Gans fight face Johnny Hughes,
the English lightweight champion. In a
fifteen-round battle. Should this be im
possible, Jack O'Brien, the local 133
--pounder, will be asked to take the trip.
lie Has Purchased a Saloon In Sew
NEW YORK, Feb. 26.— "Kid"' McCoy
has done as they all do. He has bought
a saloon. The "place" he has taken Is
known as the "Mirror Cafe," Fortieth
street and Broadway.
'•The deal has just been consummated,"
Bald the 'Kid' yesterday afternoon. *'l
didn't cut in until after I knew that a
fight between myself and Sharkey was a
remote possibility. I purpose to invest
$10,000 in the venture, and it"s up to the
decorators and others to make the place
the handsomest of Its kind on Broadway.
1 will give my personal attention to liV
but Julian Shachno, who has been my
friend for a great many years, will at'
tend to the details.
"1 don't know much about liquor, as 1
have not had time to give much atten
tion to the task of sampling the various
brands on sale on Broadway, but there
will be no bad stuff sold at my place. I
purpose to pay good money for the
liquors handed out at my establishment,
and I will have experts to look after my
interests in this respect. They might
ring in a bad brand of wine or whisky
on me. but I don't think they could fool
Shachno. ■ "
"Have T given up the idea of becoming
a Wall street broker? Well, I should say
yes. Game is too fierce for me. I also
figured on establishing a gymnasium, but
there's do money in it. "

If. C. A. Is Admitted to Membership
in the Association.
PARIS, Feb. 26.— The congress of the
International Cyclists' association con
cluded its deliberations today, after sev
eral stormy sessions. The question of
the retirement of the League of Ameri
can Wheelmen from the association and
the admission of the National Cycling
association in its place furnished the sub
ject for warm discussion.
The session was secret, but It trans
pires that President Blaurock, of the Na
tional Cycling association, was heard in
support of the reeffiest to enter the In
ternational Cyclists' association as a
body governing amateur and professional
racing in America.
The fact that Mr. Ocker, the delegate
of the L. A. W., was allowed to be pres
ent at the discussions and to vote, al
though the League of American Wheel
men resigned its membership, provoked
protests from the partisans of tha Na
tional Cycling association, especially as
the congress decided not to admit the
latter until notice had been received that
the League of American Wheelmen had
withdrawn from the association. A ca
blegram of Inquiry was subsequently sent
to the League of American Wheelmen,
which replied, confirming Its withdrawal.
A British delegate and the secretary,
M. Sturmey, then moved that the League
of American Wheeelmen, although no
longer governing American racing, should
remain affiliated to the International
Cyclists' association and that American
racing men be placed in the same cate
gory as Germans.
The motions were rejected and the con
gress voted the admission of the Nation
al Cycling association as the successor
to the League of American Wheelmen.
As a consequence of the definite settle
ment of the American conflict, the con
gress granted full amnesty to all racing
men who had been penalized by either
rival association.
The second important question before
the congress was the proposal to limit
the number of delegates from each
country to two. The British delegates
hotly contested this, because, they de
clared, it would curtail their influence
in the association, as at present England,
Ireland and Scotland are each, repre
sented by two delegates. *The upshot of
the discussion was that Secretary Stur
mey and the other British representa
tives left the meeting in a huff, declar
ing that the proposition would wreck
the association. The congress then voted
to censure Sturmey, but on motion of
the president rt-Vas decided to adjourn
action on the main proposal until the
next assembly.

Mont, President Zlmmcrmann Says,
That Cnt of Ice Conld Lower Lake.
The suit begun by Gen. J. B. Sanborn
and other White Bear property owners
against the People's Ice company, ask
ing for damages and for an injunction
to' prevent the defendant from cutting
ice on White Bear lake, President B.
Zimmermann, of the Ice company, de
clares Is absurd. He said yesterday: "1
have no doubt that the water comes in
from underground springs faster than
we can remove it. The company only
figured on taking about 15,000 ton 3 out
of ' the lake. A square acre of ice a
foot thick will yield about 100 tons. As
the area of the lake is about 15,000 acres
it can be readily figured out that under
any circumstances the water in the lak*
would be lowered only about two one
hundredths of an inch."

With Her Daughter, She Has Coma
AH the Way From Germany, bat
Death Overtook Her Here Before
Reaching Hetr Destination.
After traveling thousands of miles from
Germany to a new home In this coun
try, Mrs. Annie L. Matzka died sudden,
ly at the union depot In this city yes
terday shortly after alighting: from a
"Soo" train that brought her and her
daughter here at noon, leaning heavily
upon her daughter's 4rm. the old woman
walked feebly through the depot and
started to ascend the stairs to the emi
grant room. Half ' way up the stairs
she stumbled and sank unconscious. Sha
was assisted to a couch while City Phy
sician Richleson was qulfekly summoned
by Patrolman Andy Call, but before the
physician arrived Mrs. Matzka had ceased
to breathe. Death was due to heart
disease. *
Through an Interpreter, Lizzie Matzka,
the daughter, a girl twenty years of ago,
told the story of her mother's and her
own travels. They had left home in
Schleswig, Germany, to go to the home
of a friend, Charles Zregelmann, a farm»
er near Hanklnson, N. D., and all went
well until after mother and daughter left
Montreal, Canada. On the train Mrs.
Matzka complained of not feeling well,
but she was not believed to be seriously
ill. She was able to walk when she got
here, but her feeble vitality was ex
hausted soon after.
Coroner Nelson viewed the body and
decided an inquest unnecessary. At tho
request of the daughter Undertaker isfa«
gel took charge of the remains and will
today ship the body to Hankinson, N. D.,
where the funeral will take place. Mrs.
Matzka was sixty-six years of age. He*
daughter is the only surviving member
of the family.
Application for Payment Made by-
Certain of the Helm.
Judge Bazilie yesterday in probate
court took under advisement the matter
of Ihe application of certain of the heir 3
of Norman W. Klttson fpr the payment
of taxes on the Klttson Midway property.
The contest on the application was be
tween the children of the ?ate commodore
by his first wife and* the children by tho
second wife.
It appears that Commodore Kittson
made a will leaving the homestead to his
wife originally, butjshe having died in
the meantime he provided' that the prop
erty should go to the five children by
the second Mrs. Kittson, and offset at
the appraised value t in the probate court
as to the remaining .six. >Furthermore It
was provided that the amount so In
ventoried should be deducted from tho
amount coming to the five children and
be paid over to the otheriheirs, this con
stituting a lien against all of the prop,
erty in the hands of the executor.
In March, 1894, an agreement was en
tered into by and between all the heirs
that certain stocks should be sold and
divided among the heirs and in order to
accomplish this the six children by the
first Mrs. Klttscn agreed to release a:iy
claim they had on all the property and
to accept the Midway Park property to
the exlent of $40,000 each. It was pro
vided in the agreement that payment of
taxt3 should be made out of certain
funds left with the executor.
In April, 1894, a new agreement was
entered into to divide the amount re
served under the previous agreement
which left tho executor with little or no
funds to pay taxes.
The six heirs petitioned the court to
compel the executoT to pay the taxes of
1897, 1898 end 1809, or ' to sell a certain
portion of the property and devote the
proceeds to the purpose. The petition Is
opposed by the five younger heirs and
the executor.

Rui-K'larti HVork^d a 1 Third Street
Ssoff — Four SaWpeeis Arrested.
Burglars of considerable daring success
fully accomplished a bold robbery at the
stor« of H. Stelnmfieller'fe Co., clg-ar and
tobacco dealers, 47 East "third street, Sun
day night, when pVoperfy valued at $1W
was stolen and eaAried off In a wagon.
The burglars got into the. store by cutting
through a door from a, vacant . building
next door. Through this hole they carried
their plunder to the reaJr of the vacant
building and loaded! ,'it ort 1 the wagon.
From information gained by the police
it is evident that the robbery was the
result of well laid plans, and it is believ
ed that something must have gone amiss
with the burglars, or else much more
property would have been stolen, as
there was plenty of valuable stock where
the burglars could have easily appro
priated it. When the robbery was dis
covered yesterday morning it was at first
difficult to ascertain how an entrance was i
effects' "o th* hole «i the door was ob- j
flcured by boxes. Later the hole In the
door was discovered. Entering the vacant
building: the burglars had been able to
work on the second floor without fear of
detection, and, being unable to force the
door open, simply cut away enough of It
to afford an entrance. They confined
their operations to the second floor of the
store, where the firm keeps its surplus
stock and many articles used as prizes.
They rummaged through everything, but
helped themselves first to small articles
of greatest value, evidently Intending to
return for a second load. Among the
property stolen were three graphaphones,
a number of record cylinders, several
dozen pipes, six pairs of fur gloves, twen
ty-five pounds of tobacco, seven rugs, a
lot of fishing tackle and a box of chew-
Ing gum. ,
Detective Christian was detailed on the
case, and during the day arrested four
young men on the charge of committing
the robbery. The prisoners are Larry
Dunsworth, M. Conley, Thomas O'Malley
and Frank Lamb. Detective Christian
learned where several pairs of the gloves,
corresponding to those that were stolen,
were left as security for a wagon, which
it Is alleged some of the accused hired
Sunday night.
