Ciiixa war indemnitr to Japan will te called "taels of whoa." Ex-Sesator Kbask Hiscock. of New York, is endeavoring to find ont where he . at. Ir it is to be ex-President Harrison against the field, the field bet ought to be a giMxl one. Is that newlr published narrative calle 1 "The Land cf the Changing Sun" a romance of Greater New York in 191, Mr. Dana? asks the Chicago I'ost. It begins to look as if Editor Me dill and Col. (ieorge R. Davis were combining in Chicago to knock ont old Shelby. Mar the gods speed them, saj the people of Illinois, if thtT succeed. William Ccllex Brtaxt began to writ-i verse when he was only 10 years old. At that tender age he received a nirif-pcnny coin from his grand father for a rhymed version of the first chapter of tbe book of Job. It would be a joke if after the dig nified element of the republican party succeeded in ridding the state of the cold fossil from Sangamon, and then either Billy Mason or Clark E. Carr should walk off with the toga. The Union is exceedingly touchy altout the returns of the late election, but if the democrats are willing to discu them the republicans ought not to object. By the way, how much did the Union hare to do with any of the results of the election, any- If there were any further proof necessary of the brute instinct and impelling force of Pugilist Fitzsim raon than the fact that he killed his fparring partner, Riordan, in a mere exhibition, the attempt of the slug ger to lay the responsibility on the dead man by asserting that he was drunk is evidence enough in that di rection. The Union should post itself on the events that are going on in the coun try, especially those of a sensational nature. Yet-rday it editorially an. nourscd that Fitzaimiaons-in a prize fight at Syracuse Friday, with a man named Hiordan. administered a vic ious knockout blow to his opponent, from the effects of which Kiordan died." etc. Tie facts are that the event which in this instance termin. ated tragically, was a mere exhibition such as Fitz and Lis sparring part ner had been giving nightly. There was no prize tight about it. Os Nov. 6 the republicans carried Hamilton county, Ohio, by 22.000 maj'Tity. At a siiecial election held on Tuesday, Nov. 13, they lost it by 3,300 majority. The change in a week was over 2A,K)0 votes. The New York World, in calling atten tion to this fact, savs: "This is modern polities, and politicians of inn old school i partisan prejudice will do well to realize its meaning. The people have made np their minds to rnn the country, and they swing their balance-of-power vote backward and forward between the parties with crushing force. The knowl edge of this is one of the things re publican politicians will have club bed into item ir tney insist on be lieving that democratic defeat was their victory rather than the declar ation of independence of a self-governing people." The republican leaders appear to nave learned wisdom from experi ence and it is not likely that they will try further experiments in ex tremo protection. George R. Davis, candidate for United States senator from this state, announces his posi tion as follows: ! want to say fur ther that I would vigorously oppose anv kind of protection that tcnus to build up syndicates, trusts and monopolies. I am in favor of pnt ting necessary commodities on. the free lint as far as possible. This, I think, is the tendency of tariff legis lation. Kverv tariff bill that has been passed for years has extended the free list. The McKinley bill it self placed many articles on the free list that had ifefore been taxed, and the Wilson bill added a trreat many more. I believe any new bill that may lie introduced or passed will make still inriiier exceptions." At the presidential election of 1810 the whig party under the lead of licueral Harrison, grandfather of ilea Harrison, as their candidate for the presidency, rave the democracy an .overwhelming defeat, and the mo nopolists of that day shouted out ex ultantly, that is the end of democra cy. Bat the democracy undismayed by defeat, gathered up its scattered forces, and made preparations for the next presidential ttgbt, and it came, and the democracy elected its candidate for president in 1844, and also obtained a majority of the rep resentatives in congress. In 1852 the whir party died as a separate po litical organization, and fell into the ranks of the then newly organized know nothing party; and after a time both the whig and know nothing party passed into oblivion, and the democracy still lives though now under temporary defeat as it was in 1840 DEATH OF RIORDAN. ritolBMU Telle Haw It All Happened Deadly BMW a Very Llffct Oh. SyRACTSE, N. Y., Nov. 19. Robert Fitzsimmons knocked out Con Riordan, his sparring partner, in the first round of his usual exhibition, which cloaca the programme of his vaudeville show. Jacobs' theatre was crowded to witness the entertainment and the audience de parted for their homes, little knowing that Rlonlari was still unconscious. The blow was a ripht-hander and caught Riordan squarely on the chin He did not fall to the floor from the force of the blow. but sunk slowly until he measured his lenpth on the Mnptx The accident oc- curred at 10:9) o'clock and two physicians worked over him with applications of electricity for several hours but ho never rwraivcred consciousness and died at 3:15 a. m. Fitzsiinnions whs taken to jail to await the verdict of the c-jroner's jury. Fits Makn a Statement. AftT a nipht's sojourn in a nrtaon cell, Kitz-iimmoas hod the following to say: "Docs any one suppose I would strike my sparring pnrtniv with any force? 1 knew he had Ivcri drinking hard, but did not know he was in snch a condition. In varibly when I sparred with him he turned blue nrsmr.d the month and it was a mpi for mo to let up. 1 never struck him hard. 1 noticed after the first ex change of blows that he was rot right. The blow I delivered t hat caused the trouble was as light as I could make it. merelv slapping him with the back of the hand, lie staggvred aror.nl. I put my arm around hi?i to assist him off the stage, when he fell headlong. 1 thought he was taking, and was thoronirhly disgusted, be cause somebody in the house, thinking it wvs a fake, hissed me. I was never hissed before. Thought He Woal.l KeviT. "1 beenn to comprehend a few minutes later that something was wrong with my sparring partner, and I was horrifiod to discover him still unconscious. I attrib uted this to his drunken condition and thought he would revive from the stupor in a few minutes. I have known this man for eight years and he has alwavs been a hard drinker. Biting in p;ior con dition I presume he hoi some hea't difficulty that brought on the disaster. I am not fearful of mv prsition. Kverv- body in the opera house was aware that the blows which I struck Kiordan were light as I could possibly make them. Nat urally i. makes my blood run cold when I think of the condition of my friend, not because I have any fear of the." results, but I do not want that man's death laid ut nir door. I have seen many fighters un conscious, but they never remained out for that length of time." UrlraM-d on Rail. When Fitzsimmons anpcnrej before Judge Xorthrup for lip.il. it was discovered that his attorney fcnd failed to waive ex amination in his behalf. The raw w;s cnrrect-d and bail was fixed at 10,uiu, Yank Sullivan and Charles Gang siuticd the bail biui and Kitzsi lunulas was re leased. An autcpy was held on Biordaa's remains. The certificate issued gives as the cause of death "Hemorrhage within the cranial cavify. causing (compression of the brain." Kiordan was found to b5 in pcrf-ct health. Dr. D. M. Tot man, who conducted the autopsy says Kiordan must have been struck a UTriiic Mow on the chin, which communicated direc t with the base of the brain. The depression of the right side of the brain was very deep and remained for half an hour after the clot was removed. A Xtflioa Fnssdi.

Charles L Richards, night watchman at the Illinois hospital for insane criminals, had a des perate encounter with a maniac at an early hour In the morning. While mak ing his rounds at S o'clock he was met in the corridor on the first floor by Thomas Williams, an insane convict, who as saulted him with the iron leg of a bath tub, inflicting five gashes upon his head and felling him to the floor. Williams then ran oat of the corridor door into the main office and escaped through a win dow. Richards had recovered and followed him and fired five shots as he made his ex it. Williams is a big, burly negro and killed m man at Chicago during the World's fair, for which crime he was sent to Joliet prison for life Later he became insane and was transferred to the hos pital here. A reward is offered for his re capture and officers are scouring the country. Richards will recover. To Red nee the Fkm Oatpnt, Chicago, Nov. 19. Initial steps looking to the curtailment of the flour output of the country by six weeks suspension of the mills was taken at a meeting of millers here. The meeting consisted of twelve men chosen by vote, and In whose selec tion 5"H millers, representing a daily out put of 35U,000 barrels, were invited to tke part. The committee was unanimous in agreeing that the price of flour was below the profit-yielding point. An agreement was made to shut down the mills for a period of six weeks within the three months beginning Doc. 10. The agree ment will be enforced when mills rep resenting a production of IjC-.OOJ barrels a day sign the same. Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla. Consumption.
