fought at ISS pounds.
Slat in struck the first blow, after cautious
sparring for a few sec nds on each side, and
then both men went at each other like de
mons. Great disorder prevailed among the
spectators, who thought that McAuliffe was
getting tlie best of it, but he evidently ex
cited himself too much at the b 'ginning, for
at the end of the round Slavin pursued him
around the ring and knocked him back upon
his elbow.
McAuliffe recovered at once, and neither
could be considered in the ascendant at the
end of the first round.
all SLAVIC'S way.
The second round belonged to Slavin
alone. He drew blood from McAuliffe's
left ear to start with, and then started ia to
make things hot for him. He pounded him,
he slugged htm, he drove hi in around the
rinj, he banned him in the front of his head
and the back, and then smote him where he
was the sorest and downed him.
-McAuliffe struggled to his feet, barely in

him. He knocked bim to the floor again
aud McAuliffe failed to rise within the ten
seconds permitted him.
After the referees hid given the fisht to

Burchell's Case lining to Look Hot
• WOODSTOCK (Ont), Sept. 26.— Miss Crom
well of Eastwood was the first witness in
the Burchell case to-day. She testified that
on February 12th she went to the station to
meet some friends who were to come in on
the 3 o'clock train. She met Burchell in a
lane coining from the Branford road to the
station. His slices were muddy and his
trowsers rolled up. He entered the station
and bought a ticket for Hamilton. She had
no doubt as to his identity with the prisoner.
James Haywaid of Eastwood testified
that he was "at the station on the day in
question. That lie saw Mi*.s Smith there.
He also saw Luiclieil with his trowsers
rolled up.
Henry Jones, porter a*. Eastwood Station,

did Mary Swaize.
George Hay, a brakeman on the Grand
Trunk Railroad, swore positively that he
saw Burchell get on at Eastwood, and saw
him last at Niagara Falls. After two other
witnesses were examined Osier said that
this was all the evidence he had
against the prisoner. In the after
noon the witnesses for the defense
began. John P.obb heard two sheets in the
swamp about dusk and shortly after saw a
man come out followed by another. A
neighbor, Mrs. Scbultz, corroborated this
story. John Burgh saw two men go
in? east on Governor's . road nnd
took them on his wagon to a
point opposite Perry's place, from where
tbey went on east. Neither of them was
the prisoner. Farmer Oliver said that two

Mangled by Hogs.
Special Dispatches to The Monxixo Call.
Boston, Sept 26, —A large audience Gath
ered at the Massachusetts Reform Club to
night to greet Henry Watterson of the
Louisville Courier-Journal, who delivered
an address on the political issues of the day,
including the Tariff Bill and the Elections
Mr. Watterson Introduced his speech by
saying: "Two dangers seem to mo at this
time io threaten the Integrity of the Union
and the prosperity of the people. One of
these is the gospel of force, and the other
is tlie doctrine of protection. The first is
expected to hold the country, whilst its fel
low skins it; and to both the Bepublican
party has committed itself."
Referring to the crusade of the extremists,
the speaker said that there existed at the
North a body of public men who were con
tinually ascribing to the white people of the
South a character entirely foreign to them.
He claimed for the Southern people a very
large degree of conservatism. In most of
the Southern States the negro was favored
by the laws regulating taxation and labor
and schools, nnd by the statutes relating to
crimes and punishments. He spoke of the
efforts of the people of Louisiana to stamp
out the Louisiana Lottery and of the (nines
tic affairs of the South in general.
He reviewed protection from the stand
point of a war tariff, and said he could not
see how tbe people of the North, and par
ticularly of New England, with its need if
cheaper processes and larger markets, could
fear a reduction of the war taxes to a peace
footing.- He warmly welcomed Mr. Blame
into the free-trade ranks, and reviewed
New England's danger from processes of
obstruction. He appealed from the poli
ticians of the Republican party to the good
women and men of the party, and said that
"ten t.i one when you scratch a rebel you
will find a Yankee."
Concluding his speech, hesaid: "Gentle
men, lam no politician. 1 want no ofllce.
I do not get my bread and meat or my
respectability from my party. I have been
used all my life to speaking out in meeting,
without much concern whom it pleased or
displeased. What 1 have said here to-night
I have been saying at home anil abroad
these twenty-five years; ami it embraces the
best observation and reflection I am able to
bring to the subject. 1 cannot believe that
1 am mistaken on any essential point. These
are great questions. Th"y involve the
present well-being and the future of the
country. That they may be settled soon
aud settled right is my earnest prayer to the
Ruler of us all."

The conferrees agreed to the Senate reci
procity and retaliation amendments, making
but one change, which was in the date,
which was made, January, 1892, instead of

Of the changes made in the agricultural
schedule, the conferrees' report says: "In
the agricultural schedule the House rate is
mainly retained on oranges, lemons and
limes, which the House made dutiable at
double the present rates in order to afford
protection and encouragement to the planters
of California and Florida. The Senate re
duced the rates somewhat above the present
ADDITIONAL duties. .
The House conferrees yielded reluctantly

30 per cent on packages in which oranges,
lemons and limes are imported.
The paragraph inserted by the Senate im
posing a discriminating duty of 10 per cent
on tea, the product of countries east of the
Cape of Good Hope, when Imported from
countries west of the Cape of Good Hope,
was struck out. .
The conferrees, in speaking of the effect of
the bill on the revenues, say they do not be
lieve there is any material difference be
tween the House and Seriate bills in the
matter of the estimated reduction made in
the dutiable schedules, namely 500,000,000,
aud their action has nut materially affected
that estimate, except in the restoration of
the internal revenue provisions of the
House, and on that point they say that
for the year ending Juno 30, 1890,
the receipts from special taxes on the class
of persons to be relieved by the bill were
$1,51.., 481; from the taxes on tobacco, $Is,
--235,432, and from snuff, $737,731. Ry the
passage of the bill the reduction in the
revenue from tobacco will be $4,581,370, and
from snuff $184,4-3, making from these two
sources au aggregate of $4,705,803. Adding,
these figures to the reduction which would
follow, in the abolition of special taxes
would make a total reduction in internal
revenue receipts of $6,281,284. It is probable
the reduction by the customs schedules will
be '.about $«,0.-0,000, which would give an
aggregate reduction by the bill of about
$00,000,000. .....
New York, Sept. 26. The Tribune
says regarding the conference repoit
on the Tarilf Kill: "Every Repub
lican vote iv tho Senate and House
ought to be recorded unhesitatingly in favor
of ihls measure. - Whatever changes in
dividuals might desire, they cannot
fall to see that the bill must now be passed
as it stands, or defeated for this session.
If It Is not quits all that this or that mem
ber desires, is he prepared to face his
constituents with the plea tbat because
be could not get everything he wished
at this session, therefore he would not
allow the country to secure inestimable
benefits. A bill to give employment to
100,000 moro American workers is not to be
set aside for such a reason."

Mormon Church Property.
Washington, Sept. 26.— Representative
Caswell to-day reported favorably from the
Committee on Judiciary the Senate bill to
amend the laws in reference to bigamy and
the restriction in the ownership of churches
to real estate above a fixed value. The
bill has particular refeience to the church
of tbe Latter Hay Saints, whose charter
was forfeited in ISS7; Tho proceeds of the
sale of its real estate were turned over to
the School Fund, but no provision was made
for the disposition of the personal property
of the corporation, which amounts to nearly
$400,000, and is awaiting the action of the

rived from the sale of real estate, and place
it in the School Fund. ; . -;

Edward Smith Has Mysteriously
When Last Seen He Was Basting at Tlbnron.
Two Overturned Whitehall! Found.
Was He in One of Them
Another mysterious disappearance has
been added to the already large number
chronicled in the history of this city. This
time it is Edward Smith, a teamster, aged 27,
in the employ of Lewis, Alberts & Co., 11
Steuart street. . .* 7
He was last seen, so far as is known at
present, by one of his employers last Sun
day noon, since which time not a vestige has
turned up to give the slightest clew to his
possible whereabouts.
Last Sunday morning, according to the
story of his wife, he rose up bright and
early, and after breakfasting, left his home
in lhe best of moods, bidding them his usual
fond good-byes. There was nothing strange
in his appearance or amiss in his conduct
that could possibly foretell his not returning
soon to the boson of his family.
Noon passed and then the evening came,
yet he did not put in an appearance. What
could have kept him, asked the anxious wife,
and the little child, just old enough to ap
preciate the existence of anxiety Hi others,
lisped her papa's name. .
The hours dragged heavily until from
twilight of the evening the darkness turned
again into the twilight of the morning and
still the head of the lonely family did not
come. Tlio wife grew alarmed, and, as soon
as possible, sent word to her brother, J.
O'Brien, who, in turn, communicated with
the missing man's brother, residing in the

grew alarmed with the rest at his protracted
absence, and the horror of a calamity grew
upon them all. William Smith began a
search for his brother, but did not know in
what quarter to look.
Yesterday morning Information was
brought to him that nis brother, with two
others, had been seen on Sunday in a boat
at Tiburon. Knowing his brother's penchant
for the piscatorial sport, he accepted the in
formation as being more iv the line of
probability than any other.
His conviction that his brother had gone
fishing and had met with an accident became
all absorbing, when a rumor was started, no
one knew where', that a couple of Whitehall
boats had been found upturned In the bay.
All day yesterday he went from station to
station on horseback looking for missing
boats, but his search was__ruitless until near
nightfall, when he learned that a boat had
been reported missing from Oakland.
"I'll go there to-night," said he, "and if
that is found to be an unfounded rumor, I'll
go to Tiburon tomorrow. I'm thoroughly
convinced that my brother had been acci
dentally drowned." That was the state of
the search late last night. What a few
days or hours may develop no one knows,
but all may hope.
Mrs. Smith, after living at her home at 416

J. O'Brien, a brother to Mrs. Ed Smith,
stated that the family relations of his sister
and her husband were excellent. "They
have two children, one aged 3 aud another
less than a year, whom both love too well to
part with. I'm sure, and so is my sister,
that Ed had no reason to leave. The only
explanation I have is that an accident has
happened wliile out fishing. He was a great
lover of fishing, and has surprised his wife
several times with fine strings of shiners.
It is certainly an accident."
Mr. Lewis, one of his employers, states
that while in his employ about seven years
Mr. Smith was a hard and willing worker.

McKenna's Fight for Sweet Wine—Mor
row to Take the Stamp.
Wasiii_.gto_., Sept Representative
McKenna Is feeling very happy over the
success of his wine clause In the Tariff Bill.
The Chicago liquor men and Ea-tern wine
merchants fought it bitterly, and for a while
the prospects for its success were dubious as
far as the Senate was concerned. It took
the combinea efforts of Senators Stewart
and Hearst and of Representative McKenna
to secuie the pledges of Senators on
the Conference Committee to retain the
sweet-wine clause. The House couferrees
were all right on the matter. McKenna's
position ou tbe Ways and Means Commit
tee secured its retention by the conferrees on
the part of the House. McKenna says that
the incorporation of this clause in the bill
will be of inestimable benefit to California
wine-growers, and will make the State
ono of the foremost wine-producing coun

official report of the trial trip of the cruiser
San Francisco to the Bureau Chiefs, it is

a knot behind the Philadelphia record of
19.07, but it said that the San Francisco will
be given credit for ballistering and other
poor management, which will probably bring
her record to 19.71.

Delegate Came of Utah publishes the fol
lowing communication in last night's Star:
There have recently been published la your
paper extracts from the ten repoit the Utah

vance of Its receipt by the Secretary of the In
terior. : These convey (lie Idea that ' polyga
mous marriages aie --till being entered Into
by Hie Mormons and that the leaner* of tba
Moiiiioii Chinch continue to teach and enlorca
th at doctrine and practice upon the adherents of
thai laltb. The object of tills and similar dis
patches about the practice of polycamy among
Ihe Moiiuous is well understood here.
There are pending before Congress two or
three bills, which, II enacted into laws, would
disfranchise every member of the Moimou
Church, by prescribing a lest oath such as uo
Mention could couscieutiou-ly subscribe to.
This proposed legislation would not effect poly
gamous -Mormons as ibey are alieaay
aistianchl-ed, and can neither vote, bold
oilice no,- . set *on - juries, but It ■ would
apply to dod- polygamous Mormon*), the young 1
men ol Utah, who have never violated ibe anil
polygamy laws and bave taken an oalb that
they - will not do so In the future; who bave
always been loyal to their country aud
Us laws. 'Ihey are to be disfranchised be
cause lliey would not vote to suit the radical
anil-Mormon ring al Malt Lake Cltv. The minor

mons, Ibe sons of lhe hardy pioneers wbo dis
covered and settled tbat arid region, must be dis
franchised and (or no reason but tbat some mem

heretofore practiced polygamy. Knowing as 1
do that the charges lately made against tha Mor- i
mon citizens ol Utah are false, and that audi
statements are Injurious to them aud damaging
to ibe best luteiests of the Territory, I call at
tention to the declaration of ibe President of

refutation of the malicious statements published.
