Since the an nouncement that the government of Nica ragua would bring suit against the Maritime Cunnl company , the question was raised whether a foreign government would have the right to sue a corporation or individual In the United States.

Cniciao , Nov. 'J2. The Ivcs-Schaeffor billiard contest was hard-fought nnd well- played tonight. Sclmcffer was Invincible. Aiiy thine seemed possible to him anil ho passed his own world's record of 2iH ) for a single run. Ho made 1UH before ho wont out on a dlnicult cushion bank shot to the corner from long rango. Never before wns there such excitement nt n billiard match ; never before such remarkable play ing in one Inning as SchaofCor did. When ho reached IVOR' record of last night , 181 , the nudlcnco cheered lustily , but thut was nothing to the enthusiasm displayed when he passed his own mark. Manager Parker announced before piny began that the game would continue this evening until oltnor man had 1,000 points up. Four thousand Is the total number to bo played in llvo nights. Schnoffor had then 800 and IvesGO ; ! , and It was Schacffer's Inning , ho not having llnisiied his run when the gnmo closed last nlgnt. Ho left the bulls In nts favorlto anchor position , and In this way ho added 7f ! to his score on his Ilrst play to night. Hulling llnril for Ives. Ivcs then took hold. Ho played slowly nnd studied hnrd for position , but the balls wcro loft bad and sttlvo as ho might ho could not got them a-rolllng right. Ho made thirty-nine hard billiards nnd went out. It wna In the fourth inning that ShaclTcr's big run was made. The way ho got * the balls together was amazing. Iv'os had loft all three of the balls well on toward the center of the table. When Schnoffor had scored eight billiards lin linil tlmm nnnhnrnd uTul tltnrn hn hnhl them until ho ran his hundred after hundred without getting them ever the line. Twice toward thn cud ho cot them broken nnd in- sldo the balk , but ho drove them out aud nursed them back again to anchor. IIo was then past ! )00 ) and it seemed as if nothing stood in the way of 800 more. IJut they broke sooner this time , and after nursing them the length of the table , he failed _ to count on a shot that was llvo to one against him. him.When Ives took hold again , ho tvas r 00 bo- hltul. Ho missed. Then SchnoiTer began nursing again nnd soon had the balls strad dling the balk. Ho got in a run of soventy- six. By this time ivcs had recovered heart nnd ho went to work cheerfully. IIo got In a run of llfty-threo and SchaofTcr followed with only two. Ives came back again and this tlmo got them ou the side rail and soon hunt ? up ninety-six. louni ; Nnuolcou Closing Up. On the thirteenth inning Ivcs began Schaeffer's deliberate tactics with im mediate favorable 'ttsiilts , getting in a run of U32. Soon Ives wclit'at'itiiRuiu and tals time played marvelous billiards. Ho got them at ono end and plumed ' -thorn In and out for 188 points. Two sctfj-c'df times ono ball made u circuit of the talilo , but when all stopped rolling they were in a cluster llko tlio sign over "uncle's" door. Tn order to sot out of the balk line duj'iug 'that ' run Ivcs was forced to make 'a long" range double cushion bank at the corner pocket. IIo made it aud brought downitbo hpuso. From then on Ivcs played as if for life. Ho quickly dimin ished the distance between himself aud Jako. In the sixteoutli tinning , after a run of U4S.xho WHS tied and hojcept on scoring. Ho made ii03. Ivcs'had'thyeo moro chances after that , but old 'riot 'do much and Schaeffer won ttittgiiino with a run of 115.
