NORTH JUDSON, Ind., Feb. 18.—The Mycr-McAuliife prize fight wua brought to ati iHHtiu about S):iiO a. in. Aftor the failure of the provious nt tciupt tlie'speci&l from Streator, buuring tlie "Illinois Cyclone" and 100 of his friemls, arrived in this village at 11:15 }). m. Another special left. Chicago at H:20 with local and eastern sports nuin bvi'mg 4U0, and the Brooklyn pugilist was stowed carefully away in a buggage ir. Alf Kennedy piloted the Chicago con tingent to tlio ring, and upon arriving found the Streator forces on hand. With big Alf at the head, the howling crowd trumped up North Judson's main road way. Tho thermometer at the station regis tered 10 dog. below zero. The night was clear and still, so that when some distance from the house, on the upper lluoi- of which the ring was pitched, a lull figure in white became visible in the road, the crowd laughingly called attention to tho White Caps. The in dividual was not a White Cap, but thut other terror of prize lighters in Indiana —the sheriff. When Kennedy aj proached the official the latter ut once Juude himself known and announced that lie intended the encounter should not take place. No parloying followed, but the crowd of muttering, disgusted sports scattered aUntt. tho village ana aiscussed the pre dicament in which they had been placed. This was just at midnight, and lieing thoroughly chilled and angered, word was passed around about 1 (/clock for all bauds to take the trains. A few wi.-to heads reiuixined behind, however, and others claimed to have had a pointer to go to Hammond, and still others, more completely disgusted, started to foot it to the nearest lodging places, wherever they might be. The trains pulled out with groat puffs, loud ring ing of bells, aud everybody heaping im plication* upou Nor„h Judson and its people, and the sheriff in particular. Hut this was only a bluit: The trains lolt the town, but only went about five nulus north and theVe side-tracked. In tho meantime Alf Kennedy, Dick Iiocho, and others interested remained in town—not to remonstrute with tho county's peace preservers, because th« law must be upheld nt all hazards -not to plead, for if it came to a showing of l'»v sjieriff and his posse, if there w,i6- r"0,~ could have littm annihilated nofrtfcviVreaten, for the oenaity for aid ing, abetting or witnessing a prize light in tilts common wealth is most severe. Why those leaders remained in town may never be known, but it is said that alter expressing regrets to the sheriil' aud partakiug of sotiiu brown liquid and bidding each other good night, tho up-, rightand law-onforcingguardian walked out of tho grocery, up tlie roail, and into the peaceful conlines of his happy family circle. It is further alleged (hat the good sheriff* complained *t feeling yiito ill and decided upon retiring at an earlier hour than u.ual. Whether this be true was not known, but at ubout the time such thing might have happened the trains, then live miles up the'road, started back for the second time, reach ing this place at 2:55 o'clock. Everyone was cautioned not to raise a voice, aiul slowly and solemnly tho crowd marched to the ring side, where tlie preliminaries to the great fight were soon in progress. Then 000 voices in subdued but earnest tout's, prayed to a kind providence that the dear sheriff, in yonder-dwolling, might sleep on, and on and on until Myer and McAuliife had decided the light-weight, champion ship of America, to ste which each of the spectators had given up his S'^O bill. With tho exception'of the one hitch in the arrangements, this mill wu excel leully handled. Not one of the 700 sports present, spectators and would be spectators, knew at what spot the nng would be pitched until his arrival at its very side. The green and red lights that dottei the railroad tracks in and around the town shown with un usual brightness through the clear and nipping night. North Judson is cot the largest muni cipality in Indiana, but its citizens aro wide awake. A visit here between niid night and, sunrise, when the good Hoosiers have been* 'apprised of the fact that a prize fight is to occur within the corporate limits, shows that the entire population is awake and exceedingly anxious to testify their hospitality by joining their visitors ut the ring side. Bo at theijr best they were found by tho crowd from Chicago that invaded and took possession of tho town last, night. The trip down was a wild night ritle. Three coaches, a car and sngina made up the special in which crowded and jammed tiio 100 who made Noith Judson their objective point. By circuitous routes and from many directions, the sports left the down-town resorts and gathered in the Siinte Ve freight yard. Once started the trip became a tour of merri ment, noise aiid whisky. Of tho 500 on board. 4J0 had each at least one brown flask with a smooth cork, and 500 were provided each with a gun of improved pattern, though none expected there would l« the least occasion to bring the weapons into actual use. A/ter tho thirty-nine, and up to the foity-foui th round, the fight was in fa vor of ilyer, and odds were loudly of fered on him by his excited followers. McAulitfe w#s yet-r however, far from a beaten iiinn. nnd tho light iu Itisoyes wits as wicked as ever, and .his friends felt that he- W'HS good for another hour's lighting. From the fdity-fourth to the hftieth round the fighting waa savage, with tho chances about even. McAulitfe had recovered his wind, and Myer's rushes were much loss furious. There was a great deal of hard-lighting in the fifty-first round, with honors easy, but after this round and up to the tifty-fifth the tide seemed again swinging in Myer's favor, and his adherents were wildly excited, counting on tlieir man as a. dead sure winner. Both men came up groggy for the fifty-sixth, but despite this fact went at it as wick edly as ever. McAuliffe got in several wicked jabs with his left, apd Billy's eyes looked tikji peep holes. But a gamer man never uvea, and ho fought on.. From this routid to the close in the hix^y-sliith, !xth men were sights. Their faces wore smeared with blood, and their strength' WOB so nearly gone that neither was able to strike an ^-effective blow. They were groggy and could but stand upon their feet. They had fought them selves out, and no more fighting could likve been made, as both men were about to fall I'rota sheer exhaustion. Realiz ing that neither could win by fighting in this pitiful condition, the backers agreed UJJOU a draw, and so the referee decided it. The fight lasted four and a half hourA. K: TASCOTT IN CHICAGO. Mr*. Hrl^an'a Burglar Believed to B« the I.ong Lout Willie. CHICAGO, Feb. 13.—The interest in Tascott, tho alleged murderer of A. J. Snell, has leeii revived to an intense de gree by a burglary which was committed at the house of J. W. McLean, 224 Bel don avenue, and in which it is supposed that the burglar is none other than tho long lost Willie. The house wasentered about 2 o'clock in the morning. The burglar proceeded to the bed-room of Mr. and Mrs. McLean, but the latter awoke, sat up in bed and shrieked. Tlie burglar covered her with a revolver, eyed her steadily and slowly retired from the room. Mr. McLean was. awakened by his wife's shriek and started to follow the burglar, but his wife threw her arms around liim, and before ho broke loose from her tho burglar had vanished. Mrs. McLean describes him as young and well dressed, wearing a round stiff hat and frock coat. His eyes were large and brilliant. Sho says she would surely know tho man if over she saw him again. It is said by those who know that Mrs. McLean's description tallies witk Tascott, and that there is no doubt that the burglar was he. When Mr. A. J. Stone was told of tlie affair and asked what he thought about it, he replied:. "1 had not heard any thing of tlie affair, and know none of the particulars. It has always been my opinion, however, that when .Tascott is caught it wilfbe in that sort of way. I would not be at all surprised it this was tho fellow, because he is such an invet erate thief that he could not stop steal ing if ho tried." "What do you think of the alleged statement of some of the officers tliat they have information that ho is in Chi cago?' "Oh, I have been of the opinion for a long time that he is in' Chicago. Of course, as a matter of policy and pru dence, we have thought it our duty to run down every clue and reports wo have received concerning him, though we did not take much stock in them at the outset. I have been of the opinion that, he is in Chicago for a long time, und I have lieen confirmed in that opin ion ever since I came back from the mountaiiu last April. His preseuce here would not be nearly so likely to create suspicion as would the presence of a stranger in a small place. There is no place where he would have so many friends and acquaintances to take care of him as here." Kennedy's Doom Seulod. DESMOINKS, la., Feb. 18.—The su preme court iilod a decision in the Ken nedy murder case, refusing a new trial or to interfere t,o stop his execution. The crime for which Bernard Kennedy was sentenced at Dubuque to be hung, was one of the most brutal and revolting kind. He was convicted' of having murdered his wife on April 25, 1887. Her body, horribly mutilated, Was found stout half a mile from the honse Uie next morning. The evidence on which he was convicted was chiefly circum stantial, the principal witness against him being his own child, a little hoy. Tho boy testified that his father came home late on the evening of tho 25th and askod him to get him a towel, lie Baid that the father's hands and face were bloody, and that the father wiped off the blood in his presence and then nsked him if he thought he could get along without hia mother. Every effort in court to break down the testimony of the little boy failed, and it had much to do with Kennedy's conviction. Kennedy and his wifo were both ac customed to drinking. He was sen tenced to lie hung ou Friday, March 1. next. The appeal to tho supreme court sets aside and roquires, in case tho sen tence is confirmed, that tho governor shall name either that or some other day for the execution. It is thought that Governor Larraliee will name the same day—March 1—that was named by tlie judgu of tho lower court. nr of the Grtng. RAPID CITY, Dak., Feb. 13.—Dougher ty, the last of the four men concerned iu the attempt to rob the Homcstuke pay oar in October, passed through here in custody of .officers, bound for Dead wood, where he will be tried.

A TALK WITH BLAINE. lfe Thinks fnlia a Desirable Posses sion at Any Cost. LET THE DOMINION ALONE And It Will Naturally Drift Into the Union in Time—Tlie Secretaryship Tendered Him Long: Ago uud .Accepted—A New Name. NEW YORK, Feb. 18.—The Herald's Washington special says: Recently Con gressman Millikcn of Maine and his cousin, Setli Milliken of New York, who is a large manufacturer and haa invest ments in the south, called on Blaine on private business. During the conversa tion tho merchant, who has known Blaine for years, asked him if he was in favur of tho annexation of Canada. Milliken b/i^h Blame replied that he was, but that he diil not think it would lie brought ubout by ugitution. In the course of time he thought the Dominion would naturally gravitate in tlie Ameri can Union. If we are reaching after territory to increase our' wealth and strength, he thought Cuba should be the place for us to secure first. "In its relation to health," said Mr. Blaine, "Cuba is the natural home of pestilential diseases, especially yollow fever. Under the direction of our eminent sanitarians I have not tho slightest doubt that the existing cause of this dreaded disease could be exterminated from every part of the territory of Cuba. In point of economy it would bo cheaper for the United States to buy the island from Spain at almost any cost rather than it should be a constant menace to the health and prosperity of the southern states. Tlie cost, directly and indirectly, to the business of the country during the last yellow fever was greater than the value of Cuba, even if you put it on a mere money basis. But when you consider the peril to life which the fover constantly brings, its purchase would be dear at any price. The next object which makes it valuable is its relation to the UriitedjStates aB a strategic ooint It actually commands positions which we ought, in tho natural order of things, to possess and control. In regard to its contributing to our wealth, Cuba in the hands of Yankee people— and by that I mean the thrifty, ener getic, inventive American race—would add immensely to our prosperity. Un der the control of skilled labor its pro ductive resources would be increased a hundred fold." Mr. Blaine also spoke with freedom about his acceptance of the position of secretary of state in Oen. Harrison's cabinet, aud said .Presidont-eleet Harri son tendered him the position a few days after thoelection and did it in such a cordial way that he at once accepted it in the some spirit. Oen Noble a Cabinet Possibility, TNWANAI'OMS, Feb. 13.—Politicians have discovered that Gen. Noble of St. I^ouis, one of the leading attorneys of that city, is among the cabinet possibili ties. He is named for attorney general, What particularly recommends and renders possible, if not probable, the se lection of (Jen. Noble is the fact that he is not identified with any party faction in the state. It is said that the with drawal of Hon.'John B. Henderson's name from the list of cabinet possibili ties waB -necessitated largely upon these groimds. Gen. Harrison had, perhaps, as many as 300 callers, chiefly delegates in at tendance at the third annual meeting of the Lineoln league of Indiana. Among ,the out-of-town visitors at the Harrison residence was J. C. Stewart of Webb City, Mo. Curter B. Harrison of Mur fresboro, Tenn.., brother of tlie president elect, arrived in this city and is a guest of his relative. To the Memory of Horace Greeley. CHICAGO, Feb. 13.—A committee has begun the solicitation of subscriptions for the bronze monument which is to be erected to the memory of the late Horace Greeley, In City Hall Bcjuare, New York, from the printers of tliis city. The idea of a statue to Greeley originated with Typographical Union No. 6, of New York, but has been taken up by tlie printers of all the large cities in tlie country. The monument, which will cost $!•'),000, has beendesigned by Dojde. Tho pedestal will be nine feet high, and the great editor is represented sitting in an editorial chair with his back resting firmly against tho frame, and his long coat hanging its tails over in front.. The right leg is thrust forward and his right hand grasps a copy of the journal ho founded. His attitude is that of of list ening. Under tho chair is a pile of hooks, just as Mr. Greeley used to have them lying near him in his ofHcd. Regarded of No Con^cquence* FORT DOI)GE,.-.|^,, Feb. 18.—The re ceipt of the nliv^b'f the passage of the Des Moines rivcrland bill caused very little interest here. Snell, a heavy owner of the lands, says he regards it of no conscience aud cares not whether it is signed by tho president or not, as previous dicisions of the United States supreme court have confirmed the title. Nearly all the settlers couuider the mat ter in the same light. Gutted by Fire. NEW YORK, Fob. 18.—Three upper floors of the buildings 603 to TF07 West Thirty-sixthstreet, were gutted by fire, causing a loss to the occupants roughly estimated at from $75,000 to 3100,000.

The shot that took ef fect in his shoulder and fractured it is the one to be most feared. He is resting easily, and prospects for recovery are good. Dr. J. II.

Devoy wrote: "Wo can't tolerate the kind of thing begun in Buf falo."

When Le Caron's testimony was concluded the witness gravely thanked the court and counsel for the courtesy shown to liiiu throughout his examination. Le Caron's evidence being concluded the commis sion adjourned. liiBinarck Cranky. BERLIN, Feb. 13.—Prince Bismarck's attack of neuralgia is complicated with rheumatism, renal disorder, want of ap petite aud insomnia. His visits to the chamber are marked with frequent out bursts of passion and other evidences of extreme irritability. Apart from his morbid physical condition, party in trigues aiming to sap hiB influence with the emperor worries the chancellor more than ever. Count Von Waldersee, whom the ultra-Conservatives hope to see Succeed Bismarck, scored against the chancellor" by getting the emperor to assent to the stopping of action'against the Kreuz Zeitung. The court report, says, when Bismarck went to Sell loss to protest that action must proceed, lie was kept waiting a quarter of an hour in the ante chamber, and that, in a fit of violent rage, he told the chamberlain that the dolay was an intentional insult, and that the emperor hearing the broil, left his room hurriedly, apologized to the chancellor, succeeded in calming him, and obtained his assent to the abandonment of the prosecution. Bis marck. if in health, would probably care little for the enmity of the ultra: Conservatives. Sympathy for O'Brien.

The presiding offioer then broke the seal of the certificate from Alabama and handed it to 8enator Manderson, one of the tellers, who read the dooument. The oertifioates of the O'iher states were in like manner read, and tbe ooudt.having been oompleted, Harrisoa and Morton were deolared eleated president and vice president for tbe term beginning Maroh 4th, 1889, and deolared that this an oounoement will be entered, together ith tbe list of votes on tbe journal oi the senate Bnd house of representatives. The oonnt of the electoral votes having been concluded and the result deolared, the joint meeting of the two hcuea wis dissolved. Not to be Blamed, but Ziuehy. Watertown Oourier-News: Col. 0. W. Ainsworth is one of those luoky mortals who came to Dakota and who had scarce ly been here long enough to gain a legal iwidenoe until he soooped in a soft snap at the expecBa of the tax payers of Da kota. We don't blame the "oolonel" for taking in the snap, for it was very buman, but is sample of the way things go in this territory. And the fun of it is (to the possessor of the snap) that while he, as superintendent, and his wife as matron, are paid handsome salaries and live in a S23.000 house fur nished by tbe territory, they have in their oare one negro boy and one girl the latter takenin out of obantjr, and therefore not properly to be counted as an inmate of this aohool. The expense of maintaining tbirinstitution with their inmates is said to be upward of $12,000 a year. Snob is the Dakota re form school at Plankinton. There.were more applications fnr divorcee than for marriage licenses in Sedgwiok county, Kansas, last month. ft* -UV F/T^i DAKOTA AHEAD. The HOUSA Drops New MU xl co from tha Bill.

Donald McKay, tbe Veteran »oout, who has served tbe government 22 years among the Indians of the Paoifio coast as guide and interpreter, waa found yesterday evening by a Dispatoh reporter, and, in the ooarse of a-lit tie chat, he said. "I might tell yon about tbe time when there were no people, so tbe li dians believe, and all were animals but they oould talk jast like you aud I oan. Tbe ooyote, be was tbe big man and ruled everything. The eagle, be was prettiest and most powerful among tbe birds. The ooyote waa always getting into a trap, but always getting out again. He was a mean fellow and used to ohange himself into any animal he wanted to be, and go around and see what was going on. It was be that Droke Dalles falls on the Columbia river and lettheBBlmtn go op. When he used to live way up north he didn't have any fish, because/ five young maidens, or swallows, owned all tbe finb, and blooked up tbe the river with five stones so they oouldn't get up. \fter trying every means to break tbe dam, tbe ooyote appealed to tbe lark witb tbe broken wing, who was his for tune'teller, and told him if he didn't tell him bow to break tbe dum be wonld make it rain. 80 tbe lark told bim to turn iato a little ohild and float down the river in bis canoe, end the five swal lows would piok him up. Tbia be did, and when tbe five maidens saw him they picked bim up and fed bim and kept bim in hollow tree and gave him eels' tails to suok to keep bim from crying and fed him on roots. Wben be grew up, one day he hied off to the falls,while they were digging roots, and there he found five bars and five oaps Wbioh the five maidens wore on their beads. He put these all on and oommensed to pry off the rooks. net as he got the first one off, tbe stiok that one of tbe maidens was digging roots witb broke nod, knowing something was wrong, tbey rushed to tbe rook and fell on him and beat him and broke four of the oap« but, just before tbey broke the fifth one, be rolled tbe last rook off and tbe salmon swam up the Columbia river. And then he aalled the meadow lark witb the broken wing and be said: 'Well done.'and told all the animals that whenever tbey saw the swallows oome up the river tbey oould always find salmon, and so it is to this day. After the ooyote was gone tbe five maidens' desoendnnts all looked innt like ooyote*, and tbey grew up and were very powerfui." Don't be Hambns:ed with the foolish idea tbat Catarrh can not be oared 1 The world moves, and medioal so'ence is progressive. The proprietors of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Hemedy will pay $500 reward for a case of Nasal Oatarrh, no matter how bad or of bow long standing, whioh they can not cure.

A man in New York city was acquitted of a charge ef breaoh of promise the other day, after long and exciting trial, and in his joy be kissed bis attorney with mueh fervor. Wben he comes to pay tbe bill he will find tbat kiss charged against him. A Terrible Misfortune. It is a calamity ot the direst kind te feel that one's physical energies are failing In the prime of life -to feel more nerveless, more dispirited, weaker every day. Yet this is the unhappy lot of hundreds who sarround us. A eouroe of re newed strength whioh soienoe approves in .-half of whioh mnltitades of the debilitated have and are every day testifying, and whioh, in countless instanoes, has built up oonstitu tiona. sapoed by weakness and infirmity and long nnbenefitted by other means, surely com mend* itself to all who need a tonio. Hostet ter's Btomaoh Bitters is such a medicine— pnre, botanio. soothing to the nerves, pro motive of digestion and a fertilizer of th* blood. Dyspepsia and nervousness—the first a oause, the second a consequence of laok ef stamina—depart whrn a oourse of the Bitters is tried. All forms of malarial disease, rheu matism, kidney and bladder trouble, constipa tion and biliousness are annihilated by this standard family m6dioine. Sanltton Market.
