GENERAL SPORTING NEWS OP THE DAT
Probably there is no subject of a sporting
kind concern! ag which there is so much
diversity of opinion as training. There
seems erer to have been almost as many
different methods as there have been train
ers. This variety is found in all branches
of sport, but perhaps there have been more
theories advanced in relation to training
pugilists than in anything else. During
the last few days the question has been
freely discussed by local sports. The dis
cussion has been prompted by the appear
ance of Jack Dempsey inthis city. Some
excellent judges expressed the opinion that
Dempsey's legitimate class was among the
lightweights and of course otters argued dif
ferently. Last evening, however, one of the most ex
perienced patrons of the ring in America ex
pressed himself fully on the subject He for
personal reasous objects to his name being
used publicly, but he is a recognized authority.
ABOUT DEMPSEY'S -WEIGHT.
"I feel confident," he said, "that if Dempsey
would train himself into a proper condition
that he would be no heavier than 133 pounds.
Had he lived in England when prize fighting
was in its glory he would never have fought
heavier than the weight X have mentioned.
The truth :s there is a mistaken idea about the
weight question. I have personally known
every leading pugilist, except one or tiro now
living, for the last 3D or 40 years, and all the
best men have won their victories and fought
their hardest battles pounds and pounds
lighter than they would fizht in America
according to the present training systems
Why, a man like Ben Caunt, who was a real
giant, used to light only a little over 190 pounds.
He was 6 feet 2 inches high and his chest was
46 inches. Tom Sayers was a 150-pound man;
Hecnan. who was a tall and powerful fellow,
used to fight lighter in weight than many of
the little chaps now. I could go on and give
instance after instance proving that for power
and endurance the best men have always been
trained down considerably below what is the
rule now. I contend that the extra weight is
not only superflous, but it is injurious, so much
so that bad Sullivan been much lighter when
he fought Mitchell than what he was he would
have won the battle.
"Now the great difference between old and
new methods is simply to understand, and the
consideration of that difference is instructive
to athletes of all classes. In ill illustrate the
entire question by pugilism. Nowadays
tutgilists take a long rest now and again. They
have a nice time drinking wine, beer, whisky,
or something of that kind. They get matched
to box or tight somebody and they at once be
gin to train themselves down again.
A VERY BAD SYSTEM.
During their rest considerable fat has be
come attached to their muscles, and as soon as
they commence to train, this fat, or part of it,
is rnbbed into a hard substance and the major
ity of people really believe that it is muscle.
It is no snch thing; it is simply worthless
m.Vter. This rushing system of training is a
had system. A man needs a reasonable amount
of exercise every day, and that keeps
the muscles right and when that is the case It
is quite easy to judge when a man is in his best
condition, mere is a notion abroad tbat wben
an athlete strips to the skin and his ribs look
like coming through the skin he is overtrained.
No such thing. It simply means that his mus
cles and bone are free from the encumbrances
of fat. Why how in the name of anything
could the pugilists of 20 or 30 years have stood
up and fought terriffically for hours at a time if
they had not been in the best possible
condition. They were always trained down
fine. Compare them with the men we now
have; men who scale from 170 to almost 230
pounds. It is a common occurrence to hear of
our championB being winded before a battle
has well begun. This is entirely because of a
mistaken idea about condition. A' irk this sys
tem of living in idleness for weeks and months
and then resuming general training by run
ning and walking about 20 miles per day, hit
ting the bag, etc. may do for tle glove con
tests or a limited number of rounds; but it will
never do for a thorough going prize fight. It
is this fact that enabled Mitchell to outlast
Sullivan, and the sooner our leading athletes
who take part in long contests of endurance
recognize tbis the better it will be for them.
Joe McAulitfe. Jackson, Sullivan, Dempsev,
McCaffrey, in short almost all of our pugilists.

About tbe Cincinnatls.
CcJCrsifATX, January 27. It would not be a
eafething to wager that the Cincinnati's infield
will be the same next spring as is now antici
pated. This afternoon President Stern offered
a snug sum JL500 for the release of a young
"Western player. Kicol has signed a provisional
contract, and may be called upon to play sec
ond base in case McPhee remains "on the
outs." Tbe Reds are after another battery
Hecker and Cook. To-day President Davidson
asked Cincinnati to waive claim to these play,
ers, but this was refused, and an offer of 600
for their release was made instead. "And I
will Veep them, too." said President Stern.
"Hecker may help us out in the box once In a
while." Smith and Viau have been sent con
tracts. Under the latter's he receives less
money than be did last season, but he will not
be called upon to pitch Sunday games, in ac
cordance with his expressed wih. From
Quincy. IlL, comes thenevts that "Kid" Bald
's in is now there, and he may be married before
spring. If he does, President Stern will give
him a handsome wedding present.
To Down Cnmpau.
There is a factional stife within the Detroit
Driving Club, and an attempt is being made to
supersede D. J. Campau as its President at the
annual meeting to be held on February 4. Some
members of the club take the ground tbat
Campau's rigorous treatment of horsemen
cnarged with violating the rules of the Ameri
can Association, which govern the Detroit
track, has militated against the best interests of
the club. Another charge is that the Presi

Ball Players Who lime Complaint! and
Kcqncsts to Mnltr.
Washington, January 27. Several appeals
for decisions by the Board of Arbitration have
reached headquarters during the past week.
James Daly desires to be released from reser
vation by the Portsmouth club. His appeal is
accompanied by a lengthy statement of his
case. In reply Mr. Young advises him to make
his appeal to the directors of the New England
League. If they fail to give him a hearing,
then his case may be considered by the Board
Frank L. Smith, who was blacklisted by the
Memphis club, applies for reinstatement. He
states that he was engaged by Manager Sneed
to begin playing with tbe Memnhis club at a
stated period, for 150 a month. One of tbe
considerations was that he was to have a cer
tain amount of advance money to enable him
to settle ud hisprivate affairs pnor to report
ing for duty. The advance money was paid,
and subsequently Manager Sneed ordered
Smith to report in Charleston upon the date
stipulated in the agreement. The latter re
fused to play until the time stated in the
original agreement. Manager Sneed there
upon demanded the immediate return of the
advance money. Smith replied that he was
unable to do so, but offered to renort for duty
according to agreement. Manager Sneed re
jected this proposal and blacklisted him.
S. J. Whalan, of Jamesburc, N. J., has
written to President Young, requesting an
opportunityto play ball in the National League.
He enumerates his good qualities as a player,
and winds up by saying that he only drinks a
little. In reply, Mr. Young heaves a few
chunks of wisdom at the youngster in the
"Your favor of yesterday received. Would
advise you to secure an engagement with one
of the minor league clubs, even on trial, and if
ou are a ball plater, vour services will very
soon be appreciated. Yonsayyou drink very
little. Why not commence at once, and say I
never drink.' The hardest drinker commenced
by drinking a very little. It is very important

may have an opportunity to show your ability
and prove a success."

THE NEW ENGLAND LEAGUE.
Hopes and Fenrs About Its Organization
for Next Season.
Boston, January 27. The admirers of base
ball in the towns scattered through New En
gland are hopeful that a league will be formed
to take the place of the one that met such a
premature death last year.
One thing is settled. Worcester is to have a
nine, and tbe first player it signed was Cam
pion, who guarded first for Lowell last season.
Of tbe cities which were in the New England
League last year it is probable Worcester and
Lowell will be tbe only ones in the new league.

Some of tbe other New England cities to the
north are looking about. Nashua may get up a
nine, and Concord has aspirations, but hardly
the necessary enthusiasm, to warrant joining a
new league. In New Bedford there are signs
of a revival, and in Holyoke thev are figurine
about casting in their lot with Worcester and
Lowell. The Springfield people may come in
Hartford wants to go in the field again and
is negotiating for fellowship. New Haven is
ambitious to figure in a contest for baseball
honors again, and Bridgeport is looking the
In all quarters there is considerable uncer

Tonng Mr. Mnbonc Threatens to Outrival
rSFECIAI. TELEGBAM TO THE DISPATCH.1
Washington, January 27. If the gossip of
sporting circles be true, Butler Mahone, the
somewhat notorious son of tbe Virginia ex
Senator, has become a worthy rival of Pitts
burg Phil as a plunger of the poolrooms. Some
months ago the law against the operation of
poolrooms in the city was enforced, and the
many resorts of that character driven to the
suburbs. One of tbe most profitable of tbe
concerns opened a large room on Seventh
street hill, just outside the boundary, which
was at once christened "Monte Carlo," and at
which there has been much lively betting.
The story goes that Mahone began operations
in an humble way several weeks ago, betting S5
or S10 at a time until he had won 1,000. Then
he began to bet SIM. Success again attended
him, and lately he bas been putting thousands
of dollars on bis choice, and nearl v always win
ning, until his bank account is 30,000 heavier.
Mr. Mahone's last big winning was 4,000. on
Englewond. on Thursday, and a combination
on horses worth $1,900 was alo cashed on that
day. He is said to have sworn that he will
burst the bank at "Monte Carlo" or go broke
THE BILL IS SAFE.
Little or no Opposition to the Poolselllng
It now seems certain that the poolselling
amendment bill, drafted by the Philadelphia
people, and known as the Richmond bill, but
introduced by Representative Lafferty, will be
come law. Last evening visitors from Harris
burg, and gentlemen who know whereof they
speak, stated tbat practically there will be no
opposition to the bilL
This will be good news to everybody inter
ested in horse racing, and also those connected
with the local tracks. The bill certainly is
modest in its demands and certainly short in
its requirements as far as many people's wants
are concerned. However, it will give a sta
bility to the trotting meetings which several
times during the year not only affords first
class sport but business to many of Pittsburg's

This is what Harry Weldon, of the Cincin
nati Enquirer says about the League's new.
salary plan: Baseball legislators have made
many mistakes and enacted many a "brass
knob" rale, but tbe League's graded salary
plan will so down to history as the most non
sensical, assinine and impracticable of all
foolish baseball legislation. The plan has been
in existence a little over two months, and it is
already a dead letter. It has been construed
in so many ways, and twisted and turned so
often to fit different cases, tbat it would give a
first-class attorney a case of the horrors to de
cipher it. Even the men who framed the rule
are not'able now to tell just what it does mean.
Poor little Nick Young had a herculean job
wrestling with the plan, but, as usual, be has
managed to figure out how tbe rule allows
every club manager to do just as he pleases.
Ice will be a foot thick and snowshoes and
skates out ot the nmket when Nick makes an
enemy by giving an opinion on anything. How
ever, Mr. Young is tbe right man in the rigbt
place. The Association has heretofore borno
the reputation of making legislative blunders,
but now tbey will have to take off their hats to
their colleagues in the older body. If the
American Association should finally conclude
to adopt a graded salary plan it M to bo hoped
that it will not be capable of as many different
constructions as the one now in vogue in the
Smith Must Get In Line.
New Yobk. January27. president Byrne is
going West in search 'of a catcher to help
Bnshong out. He has his eye on a man, but,
with bis characteristic shrewdness, he refuses
to divulge bis name. During his trip West he
intends to stop at Altoona, Pa., and see George
Smith, tbe short stop of the team. The Presi
dent hasrery decided ideas as to hii plan of
action with Smith next season. Somehow the
latter has never performed an entire season's
service since be has been a member of tbe
team, but. notwithstanding tbis, has drawn fnll
pay. Byrne says that the star aggregation
which he has signed for next season will be
too expensive to admit of his carrying any
dead wood, and every man mast either earn
his money or quit.
A Locnl Umpire.
John Arbogast, the well-known amateur base
ball umpire of this city, is In receipt of several
good offers to officiate professionally next
season. John so far has proven himself an
able man behind the catcher and probably it
would be a popular move If the local club
would give him a try during tbe exhibition
games in the spring. Certainly any effort made
to encourage home talent isalways appreciated.
Arbogast is in earnest and the home club might
do worse than give him a trial.
Ridge Was Game.
One of Joe Ridge's backers called at this
office last evening and said tbat Ridge will not
be likelv to run McClelland again for a long
time at least. Tbe visitor said: "Ridge ran a
game race, and after tbe first rate was handi
capped by being Injured by a fall. The tract
was only made 20 laps to the mile instead of 23,
by mntual agreement, so that it was considera

this afternoon and evening at "West Twelfth
street Turner Hall, by an alleged combina
tion of 21 so-called singing and turner so

executed and imprisoned leaders of the
Hay market massacre. The walls were
crowded with caricatures, one representing
a policeman being blown up by a dynamite
bomb, while on either side were allegorical
figures representing Christianity andJu

Other pictures were of a mote revolting
type, the subjects being the Bible, the min

tSFECIAIj TELECHAM TO TUB DISPATCH
SCEANTON, January 27. The watchman
of tbe Brisbin colliery, on the outskirts of
this city, reported to the police officers at
the station in tne Hyde Park division of
Scranton this evening that three tramps had
taken possession of the fire room of the water
tank near the mine. Officers Ellis J. Ellis,
Thomas Lewis and John Davis set out to
capture them. When the officers reached
the fireroom there was no light in it. They
entered and Lewis strnck a match. As soon
as the tramps saw the star on Lewis' coat
they began to fire from behind the heavy
posts snpporting the tank.
Ellis received two pistol bullets in the ab
domen. The officers then backed out and
fastened the door. The tramps continued to
fire as the door was being closed. Davis
and Lewis than began to look after Ellis'
comfort, and while tbey were doing so the
tramps broke tbe door open and made off.
Ellis and Davis fired at them several times.
It is believed that one of the tramps was
struck, but he managed to get away. After
walking about 500 yards Ellis fell, and was
.conveyed to bis home in an ambulance. It
is thought that he cannot live. The tramps
fired about 30 shots altogether.
The Hyde Park people are greatly ex
ercised over the affair, and numerous young
men have accompanied squads of officers
who have gone in search of the tramps. The
latter are believed to be part of a gang that
has come into this region from Schuylkill
county, and has been actively engaged in
blowing up safes and stealing goods from
stores in Scranton and tbe neighborhood.

Insolent and Haughty Conduct of Bismarck's Beetles!
Correspondent Klein's story of the late
slaughter in Samoa differs materially from
that iurnished by the German Consul. The
brutal conduct of drunken German sailors
precipitated the affray, according to his
narrative. The haughty conduct of the Im
perial Consul and the ill-treatment of Amer
icans is also dispassionately discussed.
New Yokk, January 27. John C. Klein,
the newspaper correspondent who, the Ger
man Consul says, led the Samoans against
the German sailors in the last battle, sends
the following narrative from Apia, under
date of January 5. Mr. Klein's account of
the gffair differs materially from that fur
nished by the German Consul. He says:
Never in the history of Samoa has the
situation been so alarming as at the present
time, not alone for the natives themselves,
hut for the American and English residents
also. Since my last letter as the result of
the continued tyrannical action of the
Imperial German Consul, Dr. Knappe,
twenty-two sailors from the three German
war ships now in the harbor have been killed
and 23 wounded,many of whom will also die,
while American and English houses have
been burned, together with the flags of these
nations, American citizens taken prisoners
by armed German men-of-war boats, the oc
cupants of which forced them to submit at
the muzzles of their rifles, and the Captain
and First Lieutenant of an English man-of-war
were nearly shot by German sailors
from one of the war vessels. All this has
happened within lour days, and the actual
trouble has only just commenced. Taraa
sese's loss in killed alone up to the present
time has been about 90.
MAXIETOA A CAPTIVE.
The German man-of-war Olsa, 15 guns.
Captain Von Erhradt arrived from Jeluil
about noon of the 14th. She lei t the deposed
King of Malietoa in the Marshall Islands.
His return to Samoa in the near future has
become almost improbable. A French
Catholic prist, who had gone to Tamasese's
fort at Lautuana several days before, to
attend the wounded and hold services, re
turned in tbe evening. He reported the fort
to be strong beyond belief, and added that
it was earrisoned by 1,400 men, who had
plenty ot ammunition.
December 15 the officers of the Olsa called
upon the officers of the men-of-war,JNipsic
and Royalist, but following tbe custom of
other German naval officers and the German
Consul, failed to visit the United States
Vice Consul, W. Blacklock.
A serious exhibition of German brutality
took place on the evening of the 16th, when
about 180 seamen from the men-of-war Olga
and Adler came ashore at Matafele, by
which name the lower Dart of Ania is desig
nated, and proceeded to terrorize the entire!
place, iney announced tnat tney were par
ticularly anxious to meet Americans or
Englishmen, as well as natives, and began
by looking for Mr. Cusack, an English
The sailors took possession of the saloons
and proceeded to increase their courage by
an unlimited supply of beer. In one saloon
they happened to meet George and 'Morris
Scanland. both of whom are American citi
zens, the former being United States Mar
shal for Apia. Half an hour betore they
entered Scanland's house, the Germans, of
whom there were over 50 in the saloon, al
luded to, made some disparaging remarks to
the Americans, whereupon George Scan
land knocked one of them down. He and
his brother were at once attacked by the
other German sailors, who drew their sheath
knives and stabbed both ot the Americans
twice in the back. Several half-castes and
natives ran in to assist tbe Americans, and
the fight became general.
BRUTAL GEKJIAN SAILOBS.
The fighters finally got into the, street,
where the natives and half-castes fought the
sailors with stones, having no other means
oi ceiense nt nana, xney were torced to re
treat, however, all the other German sailors
joining in the attack. The Scanland
brothers, covered with blood, were taken
to a native church about 200 yards
from the American Consulate, which had
been turned into a temporary hospital for
the reception of Mataafa's men wounded in
battle. Here their wounds, which were
quite serious, but not fatal, were dressed.
In the mean time the German sailors be
gan to run amuck through Matafele. Native
houses were entered and women and child
ren stoned and beaten, nearly all the men
being away fighting in the bush against
Tamasese. Half a dozen drunken sailors
from the Olga entered a native house ad
joining tbe residence of the English Wes
leyan Missionary Society, and attacked an
old, gray-haired woman while she was in
the act of defending her children. These
valorous men of war broke three ot her ribs
with stones, fractured both arms, in
jured her skull, and struck her three
times in the back, causing severe in
juries. A boy who stood on the outside
watching these men was struck several
times over the head with a paling torn from
a fence. Among the entire crowd of sailors
were six or seven German officers, who
joined in the fight. Several of the officers
were so drunk that they could walk but a
few feet without falling over their swords,
which they allowed to drag on the ground.
BLACKLOCK PBEVEKTS BLOODSHED.
Word had meanwhile been sent to some
of Mataafa's soldiers, who happened to be in
the vicinity of Apia, and they came in with
their guns, anxious only to begin shooting
the Germans, who still kept up their abuse,
which thev directed especially toward na
tive women and children. United States
Vice Consul Blacklock, who has great in
fluence over the natives, had been called
in the meantime, and went to Mata
fele lor the purpose of attempting
to stop the outbreak. He was ap
pealed to by the -Mataafa men and
asked if it would not be ad
visable for them to attack tbe sailors, the
natives being wild for revenge in view of
the countless wrongs which they bad pre
viously suffered at tbe hands of tbe Ger
mans, but which they had not resented"
through a aesire to avoid trouble. They
were urged by the Consul not to make any
demonstration toward the sailors, but allow
the trouble to be settled peacefully if possi
ble. They accepted his advice, fortunately,
and withdrew, thus saving a great loss of
life to the Germans.
United States Vice Consul Blacklock sent
a vigorous protest to German Consul Knappe
on the morning of the 17th, declaring that
tbe action of the sailors belonging to the
Olga and Adler on the previous night would
have been a disgrace to the sailors of any
nation, and also directing his attention to
the fact that when Dr. E. Z. Derr, of the
United States ship Nipsic came ashore, im
mediately after the fight, the German sailors
chased away the American sailor who had
been left in charge of the boat. Consul
Blacklock informed Consul Knappe that
the action of the German sailors had placed
American life and property in serious
AN INSOLENT GEEMAN OFFICIAL.
"Matters'have much changed since this
morning," said ConsuIKnappe. "Wehave
suffered very heavy losses. You will be
advised of our future -movempnts." The
Consul positively refused to give the
slightest intimation ot what steps he in
tended to take. "Why do. you, the Ger
man Consul, representing only one of the
.nations which made tbe treaty with Samoa,
take it upon yourself to stop the war with
out consulting with the American and En
glish Consuls?" asked -Captain Mullan.
"I will answer to my Government, sir,"
replied the Consnl haughtily. "Our men
were fired upon first," he added. "Even be
fore they'had landed," put in.Captain Fritz.
Both of these deliberate misstatements were
in the most positive manner.
"What were your men doing there, armed,
in hostile territory?" asked Captain Mullan.
"Have we not the right to protect ourown
property?" asked the Consnl and the Cap
tain together. Captain Mullan replied that
they certainly had snch a right, but con
tinued by asking why the Germans had
gone there in the dead hour of the. night,
and why the one boat had landed over one
mile from German property when it could
have easily landed immediately upon the
property in question. To this remark neither
Consul Knappe or Captain Fritz made any
reply. While on board the Adler three
shots of shell were fired on shore from that
ship and the Eber.
Mamea was also seen in the ward room
behind tbe captain's cabin during the
American officer's visit. (Of tbe battle be
tween the Germans and the natives you have
already been advised.) About 430 o'clock
in the afternoon an officer from tbe Adler
came on board the Nipsic with the informa
tion that the Adler and the Olga intended
to bombard the village of Laulii in the
evening. It was added that time would be
given all "foreigners" to secure their safety
by leaving the village. This was a
most magnanimous procedure, and may
be understood when it is stated
that there were no foreigners within
two miles of Laulii, except those on board
of the war ships. Captain Mullan sent an
officer on shore to notify King Mataafa
that he had better remove his women and
children to some place of safety. This he
did at once, and also left the village him
self with such soldiers as happened to be
E resent. The entire party, numbering pef
aps 500 souls, stampeded to tbe brush,
taking with them such of the possessions as
they could conveniently carry on their
flight. Captain Mullan in the mean time had
sent a protest to the captain of the Adler
against the bombardment of Laulii. The
latter promised to delay matters for an
hour, and later announced that he would
not bombard until the following morning.
At 5 o'clock in the evening the Eber left for
Apia with the dead and wounded, who had
been brought ashore from Wailaili during
the afternoon. At 2 o'clock on the morning
of the 19th, the Alder left for Apia, taking
Consul Knappe with her. The vessel re
turned at 8 o'clock in the morning.
A CUNNING CONSUL.
Captain Mullan had sent a boat to Apia
for Consul Blacklock, who arrived at day
light. Captain Mullan then sent a boat to
the Adler, which had taken up a position in
front ot Laulii for the purpose of bombard
ment of Laulii. In order to avoid meeting
the American Consul, however, the German
Consul had cunningly remained in Apia.
The American boat had not gone more than
200 yards from the Adler on her return to
the Nipsic when the German ship opened
fire on the grass huts, n hich chiefly com
posed tbe village of Laulii.
Before beginning to bombard, however,
the people of Tamasese who had come down
from the fort at Lautuann were allowd to
loot the village unmolested. Afterthey had
got safely out of the way firing commenced,
and the inspiriting sight was witnessed of
a modern man-of-war throwing 21 large and
13 small shells at a small native village.
Not a soul was in the place, and conse
quently the 34 shells did no damage be
yond tearing half a dozen small huts to
Eieces, the shells nearly all falling in the
ush beyond. Four heavily loaded boats
containing sailors from the Adler and tbe
Olga were then landed,and the entire village
burned. It was located on ground owned
by an English firm. Two large English
flags were flying there and were fired on by
the Germans. The Nipsic, followed by the
Olga and the Adler, returned to Apia as
soon as the village was destroyed, which
was only a matter of a short time. In the
morning three of the' German sailors and
Lieutenant Sieger, of the Olga, were buried
on Mulinnu Point by the men from the
Eber. In the afternoon ten more of the
sailors killed at Vailele were buried, two
officers of the Nipsic being present at the
AUGUSTUS CAZAURAN DEAD.
Close of the Career of a Well-Known Jour

fSrECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.l
New York, January 27. Augustus B.
Cazauran, wbo is so widely known as one of
the most successful playwrights of his day,
died shortly after noon yesterday. His
wife, her sister, Mrs, Hunter, and Mr. Hun
ter, were in Mr. Cazanran's room at the
Hotel Dam when he died. For manv
months past Mr. Cazaurau has been been
lying ill with dropsy, and has submitted to
many painful medical operations that
brought only temporary relief. His won
derful vitality has astonished his friends.
The body has been embalmed, but no ar
rangements have been made for the funeral,
which will take place on Tuesday. .
Augustus R. Cazauran was born in Bor
deaux, France, October31, 1820. His father
was shot in Algiers six months before Ca
zanran's birth, and his motherdied in child
birth. He was educated at the University
in Dublin. In 1848 he got mixed up with
an Irish rebellion and fled to tbe United
States. He soon spent the fortune he
brought with him and obtained employment
on the Herald as a reporter. Up to 1858 he
.continued in newspaper work on varions
papers. During the Crimean war he acted
as war correspondent to a London daily.
On his return here he was associated with
Plttman, in the publication of a manual of
phonography. Afterward he was connected
wilh the Cincinnati Enquirer, and at one
time managed Heller, the magician. Later
he became chief editor of the Memphis
When Lincoln was shot Cazauran was at
the theater as dramatic critic, and wrote the
first account of the assassination. He once
acted as manager for Theodore Thomas. In
1809 he came to New York again and be
came associated with Mr. A. M. Palmer,
then manager ot the Union Square Theater.
Here Cazauran did dramatic work, and

How a ritbbarger Obtained a Drink in a Host Un
The following letter from a Pittsburger,
who spends a great deal of time in New
England on business, will be read with in
terest by Pennsylvanians, especially as it
gives a graphic picture of a state of things
that may possibly exist here in case the pro
hibitory amendment carries.
rconnisrosnENCE of the dispatch, i
Portland, Me., January 26. If you
want to get a drink in a Maine city you can
get it without trouble. In Portland, Ban
gor and other places -I have seen hotel
guests order wine with their meals and it
was served to them with as little fuss as if
they had ordered cofiee. But iar some of
the smaller towns and villages it is
not quite so easy to get what
you want. Lremember my experience at a
small town in Western Maine. I wanted a
drink, and I wanted it badly. But as I
didn't know tbe ropes I felt as though there
was small chance of my wishes being grati
fied. Luckily I happened to meet a friend
and stated my case to him. He asked me to
come with him, and we entered a small
hotel. He called the proprietor into a
vacant room and whispered something in
his ear. The man, after looking around the
house and up the street and down, to see
that nobody was watching, toofi a bunch
of keys from his pocket and unlocked a
door, at the same time beckoning my friend
and myself to follow. We went down
a dark stairway and into a cellar, at the
further end of which was a small cupboard
or closet, built of rough boards. This was
unlocked by the landlord and the three of
us entered, filling the place so completely
that there was scarcely room to turn aronnd.
The proprietor lighted a candle and asked
us what we 'd have. I took a couple of
glasses of beer 10 cents each which he
poured from bottles bearing St. Louis
labels. My friend took mm, and said after
ward 'twas villainous stuff, but he couldn't
get any other spirits in the place.
STRICTLY ON THE QUIET.
We went upstairs preceded by the land
lord, who wouldn't let us come ont of the
cellar until he had gone ahead to make sure
nobody saw us. At another village I found
a man who sold liquor whose entire stock in
trade was kept in two jngs secreted in a
haymow in his stable. There are othes
places where they have portable saloons,
bottles and jngs which can be whisked out
of sight at a moment s warning, a ve neara
of "drop a quarterandget a drink" devices,
hut have no acquaintance with them.
Where the laws are enfored, and there are
towns that do enforce them, no one can get
drink unless he orders it Boston, aiul has it
shipped to him by express in Unoriginal
packages. A great deal comes into the
State in this way.
Massachusetts has a different method of
dealing with the liquor question. They
have a local option law and every city holds
an election annually to decide whether it
will have licenses or no licenses. In its
practical working this law is not enforced in
any town of sufficient size to make the viola
tion profitable. The first offense is seldom
punished by imprisonment, and only by a
fine. The proprietors change after one of
them is fined, so that when a new arrest is
made the man goes on trial and pleads as to
his first offense. In villages and rural town
ships, where the houses are not close to
gether, and where every native-born in
habitant regards it as a duty of the highest
importance to keep himself thoroughly
posted about all the details of his neigh
bors business, the law is entorcea. Ane re
sult is an increased travel between the vil
lage and the nearest city.
In the cities which have voted for no li
cense the evasion of the prohibitory law has
reached a refinement which is not known in
Maine. A stranger finds a large number of
restaurants and chop houses not the kind
they have in Maine, where the only eata
bles are canned goods on a few shelves in
front but real chop houses, where you can
get a tolerable meal at a moderate price. A
man who is not acquainted or who does not
make his wants properly known can get
nothing bnt things to eat.
Inside the door is the cashier's desk and a
cigar stand, or a case and shelves with an
assortment of candy, cakes and pies. The
confectionery is not frequently offered for"
sale, though the cigar stand is a profitable
part of the business. The candy and bakery
annex is used where tbe restaurant trade is
worth something and where the place is of a
high enough characler for a respectable
woman to go there for her luncheon. Beyond
the cashier's desk and'the cigar stand there
is a narrow passageway going back to the
main restaurant room, wnicn 13 use a room
in any restaurant, with tbe ordinary tables,
chairs, and arrangements. No liqnor is
served in this room unless every one in the
eating saloon is known to be trustworthy.
A spotter mieht sit in the restaurant part of
the saloon all day long without seeing a
drop of liquor.
The liquor is served in compartments off
the passageway between the entrance and
the restaurant room. Along this passage
way there are 10 or 15 little cells about lour
feet wide and varying in leqgth according
to the width of the room. One man cannot
pass another in one of these cells, and the
man sitting at the hallway end of each
bench blocks entrance.
HOW TO GET A DRINK.
Bunning near the ceiling of the whole
length of the whole hallway is a brass rod,
on which there are as many sets of curtains
as there are cells. The curtains are made
of dark stuff which cannot be seen through.
They are pulled back except when drinking
is going on inside. They fall short of the
floor by a coupleof feet. Their lower edge
comes about 2 inches below the edge of
the table and prevents anyone in the hall
way from seeing what is on the table when
the curtains are pulled to. The curtains do
not fall down far enongh to prevent the
trousers and feet of the men inside from be
ing seen, and the waiters can tell without
pulling back the curtains whether someone
is in the cell.
A man who wants a drink goes into a
cell, after looking at the waiter. The
waiter follows him and looks at him. He
looks again at the waiter. These prelimi
naries having been gone through, and the
waiter having made sure that the man
wants a drink, asks what it is. The man
tells him. Suppose he says whisky. Tbe
waiter pulls to the enrtains of the cell and
disappears. In a minute or two his head
appears over the partition, and lie hands
down a whisky bottle, a small glass, and a
glass of water. The man pours out the
whisky into the small glass and hands back
the bottle to the waiter, who disappears be
hind the partition. In a minute more the
waiter reappears, pulls back tbe curtain
and takes his pay.
There is no bar. The liquor is kept in a
cnbby hole, which has an entrance to a hid
ing place in the cellar. The police feel it
their duty at times to search these eating
saloons for liquor. When a search is to be
made the proprietor receives notice, and
takes all of his stuff down into tbe cellar,
except, perhaps, a demijohn of whisky,
which is seized by the police, confiscated,
and sold. As it is hard to run one of these
places without everybody in town knowing
about it. no drunkenness is permitted, and
the character of an eating saloon is far J
ahead of that of the Maine rum dive. The
respectable citizens of the city make oc
casional protests against liquor being sold
in this way, bat if the places are orderly
and well conducted little fault can be found
MUBDEKED IN BED.
Three Persons Shot Throngh the Window by
a Fiend Fearful Work of a Wloches
ter Kepeater A Son Impli
cated In the Crime.
Lansing, Mich., January 27. A hor
rible murder was committed last night
about seven miles from this city. Christian
Stochal, a Polander, resides on a small farm
with his family, consisting of his wife, aged
63 years, his son Fred, aged 20, and Minnie
Faltz, his 13-year-old granddaughter. The
family had just retired when a gun was dis
charged just outside the east window of the
cabin. The shot crashed throngh the glass
and struck Mrs. Stochal over the heart.
Minnie sprang up in bed at the sound of the
shot, and the gun was discharged a second
time, the load striking the child in the
breast. Minnie sprang up a ladder in tbe
corner of the room to the loft above, and her
grandmother was attempting to follow her
when a third load of shot struck the old
woman in the back, and she fell down the
ladder to the floor dead.
As Stochal sprang out of bed, dazed with
sleep, a fourth shot struck him in the head,
though but few of the shot bit him. He
cr.iwled out of bed, and, seeing the mur
derer standing several rods from the house,
slipped off in another direction and, bare
footed and clad only in shirt and drawers,
ran through a tamarack swamp in the in
tense darkness to the honse of Cornelius
Driscall, half a mile west. Deputy Sheriff
Cook and Coroner Bennett, of Lansing, were
telegraphed to from Holt and went to
Stochai's place at 2 o'clock this morning.
It required very little time to convince
them who the murderer was almost beyond
the possibility of a doubt. August Tanto,
19 years old, who is acquainted with the
Stochai's, yesterday borrowed a Winches
ter repeating rifle. Outside the window
were tound two empty shells, and one
loaded, which corresponded exactly with
shells Tanto had secured. After the shoot
ing Tanto .bought a ticket to Mason. He
has not yet been apprehended. Fred Sto
chal came to Lansing Friday. He was ar
rested to-day on suspicion of being impli
cated in evolving the crime. Minnie is in
a precarious condition but may recover.
Mr. Stochal is not seriously injured.
SCIENTIFIC SAUEE EEAUT.
Plaintive Wall of a Man Who Has Had Too
Mnch or Too Little of the Fairy Herb
Cabbages and Corrency.
It is on record that a Dutchman once com
mitted suicide because his kraut wouldn't
schmell. Whether the story be true or not,
it is suggestive of a plan by which the
immense cabbage crop of this season might
be saved for another year when the vegetable
may be scarce.
It is not many years since cabbage was so
scarce that only the well-to-do could indulge
in it, and, oh, how deliciously it tasted then!
It is rather a convenient and toothsome
vegetable to have in the house at any time,
sweet or sonr, and as there is more cold
storage capacity in the city than needed at
tbis time of year, why not fill it with sauer
kraut and erect more refrigerators by the
time they are needed?
Sauer" kraut, like wine, improves with
age; in fact, connoisseurs do not consider it
good eating nntil it is as strong as Limberg
cheese, and were it kept at freezing point it
might be preserved for use, not only in
years of scarcity, but might become an in
vestment security on which the Government
could issue money and some people of the
Greenback persuasion think tbat sauer
kraut, land, pig iron, etc., would make a
better basis ior currency than a debt any
how if the issue were limited to, say SO per
cent of the average market valne of these
articles. u t
The cabbage is a beautiful flower ro
bustly beautiful like the lasses of the
Netherlands, and was once cultivated by a
distinguished Bohian ruler, but it scarce
pays to raise such flowers at a cent a piece.
There are times when the infant plants can
not be bought at that price, and it seems a
great pity to allow them at maturity to be
hauled to the dump when they are not
needed for fish food. 'Twould be better to
make ensilage of the surplus and feed it to
