The Union is attempting to revive by
gone questions which have no bearing
whatever upon the present campaign
with a view of diverting attention from
the study of the tariff issue, and the Mc
kinley bill which is playing tucb a havoc
among the people and wticb Oest sup,
ported so warmly. The Union very natut.
ally would like to fight the present cam
paign on any policy but the present, but
the masses of tbo people are not going to
have their minds so easily turned from
things which pertain so directly to them.
If the Union, however, has any time and

It it strange that in all this talk noth

Why, when so many say, "I am a re

there," do they hesitate. Whjn baa Oest
done to warrant his being sent back three

People at Washington will think we
only have one man in this district

Washington City. Oct. 24. -Senator
McPberson, of New Jersey, who was the
leader of the Democrats in the senate
against the McKlnley bill, has discovered
that section 80 of the bill, referring to in
ternal revenue, as agreed upon in confer
ence, has been nearly all omitted, there
being only about forty words in the "bill
as signed by the speaker, president of the
senate and President Harrison, of the 900
words in the section as finally agreed
upon. lie claims that the omission, which
refers to drawbacks on tobacco, makes
the whole bill iuvalid, and it is under
stood that Senator Carlisle agrees with
himv It la said In New York that Im
porters will take art vantage of this error
and pay all duties under the bi II under
Opinions IHHer, However.
But like everything else that involves
politics, it makea all the difference in the
world who you talk to as to the effect the
omission will have. If it comes to the le
gal test, the supreme court will have to
decide the matter. A telegram from Chi
eago says that Representative Adams,
when his attention was called to the mat
ter, declared that the omission had no ef
fect on any part of the bill except section
90, and that could be made all right by a
concurrent resolution which would be
paae(i at, the December session. He also
said that the Republicans knew of the
omission a few days after congress ad-
journeu, and that one object in the move
for a special session was to make the nec
Some Precedents Cited.
The matter was the topic of discussion
in omciai circl es yesterday and the senti
ment was a m wt unanimous that only
s.ction 30 was involved. Secretary Hal-
ford sa'd, in reply to the assertion that
the law signed by the president was not
the law passed by congress, that the bill
signed by President Harrison was the
same bill signed by the speaker of the
house and the president of the senate,
ami that thee signatures were the only
official notification the president ever re
ceived that a bill had passed. At t he
treasury department it was said that
omissions in bills were no new thing and
that even when they occtirteJ in a para
graph they were uot held to invalidate
the whole paragraph, but only the mat
ter involved in the omission.
Illustration of the t'ase.
For instance, the tariff law of 1864 in
creased the duties on brown and bleached
linens, ducks, drills, "coatings, brown
hollauds, clay linens, damasks," etc., fol
lowing the order in which the articles
were put in the old law, but in engross
ing the words quoted above were omitted.
At that time it was not argued that the
omission of "drills, coatiugs," etc., from
the paragraph invalidated the paragraph
or applied to any other articles than the
ones omitted or that the error in regati
to the paragraph not being complete,
tended to make void the bill as a whole,
or that the articles in being omitted be
lonced to the free lint, because they were
not enumerated in the dutiable list. All
that was done was to refund duties paid
on the quoted articles and correct the er
ror at the next session of congress.
General KftVct of tha Omission.
As it stands, it is the general opinion
that the paragraph will uot stand as law.
and that where it by construction refers
te other paragraphs, it may impair their
strength. Secretary Windom, however
says that it is not Lis business to question
the law's validity, and that he will en
force it as it stands until the matter is
decided by the courts.
"CAME FROM CUIPEPER, SAH."
A Couple Who Wanted Something- Now
In tha Wedding; Line.
Washisotos Citt, Oct. 24. There were
two visitors to the White House yester
day who attracted general attention be
fore they took their departure. They were
evidently from way back in the woods.
The man was apparently about 43 years of
age. His compauiou was a woman about
fifteen years his junior, pretty and mod
est. After an animated conversation on
the porch they timidly appoached Capt.
Dinsmore, the chief doorkeeper. In a low
voice the man informed the captain that
he wanted to get married. "What is your
name'' asked Capt. Dinsmore. "John
Gillingham, replied the man. "I came
from L'ulpepah. sah."
Victims of the Practical Joker.
Upon further questioning the captain
learned that the couple had been told by
some practical jokers in their native town
that if they would come to this city and
present tbemsel ves at the White House
the president would tie the matrimonial
knot. They were much chagrined and
disappointed upon being told that such
services were out of the president's line,
and that it would be impossible to be
married by the chief executive. Then
they consulted again and wanted to know
if they could not be married at tbe top of
Washington monument. The man said
that he and Sallie had been courting for
eight years, and that a commonplace
wedding would by no means be equal tc
the occasion. Capt. Dinsmore laughed,
and directed the romantic couple to the
city ball, where they finally procured a
license and were married in every day
ASSESSING GOVERNMENT CLERKS.
Commissioner Roosevelt Says Employee
Are Safe In Refusing to Pay.
Washington Citt, Oct. W. Commis
sioner Roosevelt, of the civil service com
mission, said yesterday in reference to the
alleged activity of the political associa
tions, especially in tha matter of raising
campaign f'inds among the government
employes in this city, that the commis
sion will pursue the same course it did
last year. "In former years," said the
commissioner, "these assessments were
levied openly; now they are levied in se

ploye need pay a cent unless he wishes to;
and we will welcome information from
any one as to any effort being made, no

sure that no cabinet officer would per
mit a man to be molested for refusing to

be a direct breach of law to permit any
one to be molested for such a caue. The
alleged threat to blacklist men refusing
to contribute is a mere piece of idle brav

GLADSTONE AND EIGHT HOUfiS
Ha Rejoices Over tho Keclea Election,
hut Shies at What Carried It.
I.OXDOM, Oct. 24. Gladstone addrewed
an immense gathering of people at West
Calder yesterday. He referred to the
Eccles election as a forecast of the trl
nmph of the Liberal party at the general
election. If the ratio of gain contin ted,
he said, it would give tbe Liberals a ma
jority of ninety. He objected to the
term "Separatist" being applied to the
Home Rulers, characterising it as on' rue
and unfair. There was now no question
of the Liberals desiring to remove Irish
representation from Westminster. 1 hey
did not propose to repeal the nnion, but
merely to delegate the control of local af
fairs to Ireland.
Kemarka on the Labor Issue.
He advocated shorter parliament and
commented on tbe enormous power wh ich
the workiogmen now possess. It wo ild
certainly prove beneficial, as judgment of
a great question by the masses was more
enlightened than judgment by the elu
cated classes. He wonld not, be said, ven
ture an opinion upon the question of a
general eight-hour bill until he saw a
itefiuite measure to that end. In spite
of the vote of the trades-unions he saw no
way to consider a general legislative ro
posal, but favored a special eight-hour
bill for miners.
Approves of Combination.
Alluding to strikes he aaid that do'vn
to the present time when contests be
tween labor and capital had gone to l he
sharp issues of strikes and lock outs, 1 be
lahorinir man had in tbe main been in I he
right, a.moiig the means which woi k
lngiuen ought to select in order to
strengthen them, legal combination was
the moRt valuable. It was a sound sys
tem and only ith rare exceptions harih
upon individuals. They ought not to
contract the habit of appealing to pari a
ment to help them in difficulty by a
special act. Freedom of action, reliance
upon themselves and Unity 'of policy
would lift them iuto a higher position as
Individuals and as a class.

Ha Refuses to Either Attend Rellrions

Them Repugnant to His IteliaMona Con
victions, Beeansa Ho Has None of tha
Latter, and Doesn't Adaalt tha Right
of The Faculty to RrqHire Such At
Chicago. Oct. 24. Foster North, a stu
dent, has filed a petition for a mandamus
in tbe supreme court of Illinois against
the trustees of the University of Illinois
to compel them to restore him certain
rights, which he claims to have lost
through being suspended from tbe uni
versity for refusing to attend religions
services in the chapel. In September,
1879, North matriculated aa a student at
the university and would hare graduated
as a bachelor of science in Juue, 13S5, if he
had been permitted to remain in the uni
versity. The regent and faculty never
charged North with any misconduct o r
delinquency, and he complied with the
rules and regulations except in one case.
Among tbe rules was one requiring stu
dents to attend chapel each morning.
Egress from the chapel during tne exer
cises was denied.
Refused to Attend Service.
During February, 18S5, and for the re:
maiuder of his attendance at the uni
versity. North did not attend any of the
chapel exercises. On April 1, IS85. North
received a notice to call at the regent's of
fice and explain his absence from chapel.
He called and explained to the vice presi
dent, who was acting as regent, that
compulsory attendance upon religions
services was prohibited by tbe constitu
tion of the state of Illinois. On April 3
he received a communication from the
secretary telling him that he would be
expected to conform to tbe rules of tbe
university during his continuance as a
Proposition of the Faculty.
He still absented himself, and on April
17 the faculty voted that if. he claimed
conscientious scruples against attending
chapel be migh'. be excused; if not ha
would be suspended. A petition was
drawn up for him to sign, stating that
"attendance upon and tbe listening to any
religious services are repugnant to my
religious convictions and in violation of
what I conceive to bo my rights of con
science; therefore. 1. Foster North, a stu
dent oi mature age. of said university, re
spectfuliy a.k of the regent and faculty
thereof that I may he excused from at
tending and listeuing to such religious
His Reasons for Not Signing:.
This North declined to sign first be
cause he had no religious convictions,
and, secondly, by signing it he would be
admitting that the faculty had the legal
right to compel attendance upon chapel
aerv.ee, which he denied, and would be
asking a favor which was denied to oth
ers. On April 30 North was indefinitely
suspended from the university. He ap
pealed to tbe board of trustees for rein
statement and to the acting regont but
was refused. In answering the com
plaint the attorney general says that
when North applied for admission he
promised, in common with other stu
dents, to perform all duties with fidelity
and to yield loyal and instant obedience
to all lawful authority.
The Rule He Wouldn't Obey.
One of the rules was to meet In the
chapel of the university each morning,
and as that was a reasonable and proper
rule it was tbe duty of North and others
attending tbe university to keep it. Tbe
attorney general denies that the board of
trustees at any time compelled North to
attend religious services, but they did in
sist on his complying with tbe rules
adopted for the government of the uni
versity. Claim of tha Plaintiff.
Messra. McDougall and Chapman, who
are attorneys for North, claim that tbe
reading of the New Testament, the sing
ing of hymns, and the repeating of tbe
Lord's prayer constitute the chapel a
place of worship for the time being, and
that the exercises constitute sectarian in
struction. The constitution forbids the
making of appropriations for sectarian
institutions, and yet the board of trustees
by tbe rule adopted made the university
a sectarian school of learning. North had
promised obedience to all lawful author
ity, but this onler was unlawful and he
j had no reason to obey it.
HE GOT HIS REVENGE.
A Desperado Who Took Seventy Lives

Mt'SKooEK, L T.. Oct. 24. "Old Tom
Starr," one of the most remarkable des
peradoes in this country, is dead. Ho was
Cherokee Indian, 6 feet 4 inches in

time of his death was nearly 80 years c-f
age. This remarkable man came wet
with his father when the Cherokees were

tne party on the spot, and then be began
a war on the enemy, in which seventy peo
ple, as estimated by the Cherokee coun
cil, were slain by him. About fifteen,
years ago the Cherokee council entered
into a treaty with Tom. since which com
promise he had lived a quiet and exemp
lary life. During the days of his warfare
iigalost his Indian foe there were many
deeds of desperate daring placed to his
credit. By him a tax collector in Craw

an npper pioweuinm box. The duke be
gs a to talk loudly directly after being
set.ted, and tbe actors and actresses looked
up in astonishment at him. The party
continued to talk, however, and the spec
tators in the orchestra looked up an
grily. The Actors Disconcerted.
Is the second set it was apparent that
the persons on the stage were becoming
disMncerted by the chatter of the bank
er's party, but tbe duke did not appear
to lie affected by the frowns on tbe faces
of the audience. Finally several occu
paiita of seats in the front rows hissed in
very decided disapproval, and It was said
that Mr. Sothern would have stopped the
pet formance on tbe stage had the talking
in the box not stopped.

T io dncheas of Marlborough made a
somewhat similar disturbance one night

Dixon, the Colored Pugilist,
: Wins a Fight. . - -

The White Maa Stands Forty Rounds of
Terrible Hammering, and Kvra Then
Doesn't Want to Give Cp A Rare Kx

ment The Result a Foregone Conclu
sion from tha Start.
Pkovihknce. R, L.Oct 84. The glove
fight between George D.xon (colored), of
Boston, and Johnnie Murphy, of Haver
hill, Mass , took place at tbe rooms of the
Gladstone club in this city last night It
was won by Dixon, Murphy's seconds
throwing up the sponge in the fortieth
round. It was seen at the start that Mur
phy was overmatched, but it took Dixon
2 hours and 43 minutes to whip him. The
Qght was for $1,000 a side snd a 11.700
trophy. There was an intruenae crowd in
attendance, sporting men coming from
all sections of the country. Dixon bad
trained down to 118 pounds, and Murphy
tipped the beam at the same weight
Murphy's fighting weight is 109 pounds.
Murphy's Phenomenal Knduranea.
Murphy's staying powers were simply
marvelous, and it is astonishing how he
managed to come np round after round
in the face of tbe terrible punishment he
received. It was thought by tbe way the
fight started in that Dixon would win in
short order, and at the sixteenth round it
looked as though the succeeding round
would finish Mnrphy, but be revived con
siderably after that round and took his
punishment gamely. He was badly used
up at the finish, and though barely able
to crawl over tbe ropi s, pro tented against
bis seconds throwing up the sponge. In
fact he went over to Dixon's corner sfter
the referee had given his decision snd of
fered to continue the fight He presented
a pitiable spectacle, his face streaming
with blood Snd his mouth open, gasping
Description of the Fight.
The men entered the ring at 9:35 and
tbe sponge was thrown np at 11:30. From
the first it was Dixon's fight Murphy
could hardly ever reach Dixon, while tbe
latter, although never striking a knock
down blow, kept pegging away at Mur
phy's face and stomach nntil it was the
wonder of all the ring side how the little
white man stood up to the fight From
the first to the sixteenth round it was one
smash after another in Murphy's face,
sometimes dazing him. and timS was
called very fortunately fir him in several
rounds. In the fifteenth foul was claimed
by Murphy's hackers, and although it
looked like a good claim it was not al
lowed and Dixon's seconds cautioned bun
not to lose the fight on a font
Murphv'a Beat Work.
From then ou Dixou fought more wari
ly, evidently intent upon tiring Murphy,
who was full of fight, and though leading
frequently, was unable to get anywhere
near the darkey. In the sixteenth, seven
teenth, and eighteenth rounds Murnhv
showed np well. In fact, he had the best
of the sixteenth round, and it was tbe
only round iu which be did any fighting.
He threw Dixon handily by a sharp twist
when Dixon rushed upon him, and tbe
fall rather rattled the colored pugilist.
Murphy started for him immediately
after he got np, and getting Dixon
against the ropes near his own corner,
gave him two or three abort-arm blows.
Then they were separated. Dixon was a
little groggy, but tbe round ended there.
Dixon Fights a Sato Fight.
From then on to tl:e thirty -sixth round
Dixon attempted no rushes. He fought
cautiously and safely, getting In when
there was an opening, and always get
ting away when Murphy tried to get in a
hit In tbe thirty-seventh round Dixon
got Murphy into the southwest corner of
the tweuty-four foot ring, and near tbe
close of the round rushed him with both
hands. He struck him right and left full
ia the face, and Murphy's head dropped.
It was thought that he was done for, but
he rallied, ducked bis bead under the
rain of blows and started for his corner.
Dixon caught him just befo re be reached
it, aud fought biui to his knees; Murphy
being nnabie to defend himself, fell pros
trate In his corner. He was picked up
snd Dixon started in to finish him, when
time was called.
Murphy Game to the Last.
It was believed that the thirty-eighth
round would finish Murphy, but he was
game. He struck back as well as he
could, and used the whole range of pugil
istic tactics to save his backers' money,
but without saving himself from terrible
punishment This and the tbirty-ninth
round were simply a series of blows by
Dixon, each one intended to be a finisher,
but at the fortieth round. Murphy stag
gered to the scratch again and tried to
stand up. He did it for one and a half
minutes and then fell into his seconds'
arms, not knocked out, but worn out
Dixon seemed scarcely fatigued, and was
tin injured save tor a bruise over the left
eye, ami a slight swelling across his nose.
