WONT HAVE BOXING,
The East End Gymnasts Don't
' ant the Manly Art
W PUBLIC EXHIBITIONS;
President Barber Mates a Statement
of the Club's Standing.
- BALL GOSSIP OF LOCAL INTEREST,
Hiller Offers to Join STrartwood's Projected
Team for the South.
'GENERAL SPOBTIKG KEWS OP THE DiT
It certainly trill be interesting to the
(sporting public to know that one of the
most prominent athletic clubs in "Western,
Pennsylvania has resolved to nave nothing
more to do with boxing exhibitions, either
public or private. The club- in question is
the .East End Gymnasium. The title is to
some extent misleading, because it is hap
pily an organization for the physical de
velopment of everybody who becomes a
member of it Of course boxing is a feature,
anfl a great one of all thorough-going or
ganizations whose object is to make mem
bers expert in using their arms and legs,
and to a great extent their brains. Many
members of the E. E. G. looked at the matter
in this light, and were disposed to have models
of fistic culture perform in the clnb's rooms
now and again. This meant tbe engagement
' of the best exponents of the "manly art," ana
the matter was decided at a recent meeting of
'the clnb's directors.
Tbe meeting, of course, was an important
one, because of the questions at issue. Here
tofore tolerably good exhibitions of boxing
have been given to the members of the club by
JfOT A LEGAL CUSTOM.
It was discovered that this custom was no
more legally or morally important than having
"McCaffrey and Dempsey there to give an exbi
"hitibn. The truth is several members, imbued
,with a desire to have the best quality of goods
pnt up, were figuring on having the two promi
nent exponents of-the "art" appear before the
The last meetine of the directors, however,
killed all hopes and expectations in this-direc-tion.
After a lig discussion pro and con, it was
decided that no more boxing exhibitions of any
kind be permitted in rooms controlled, owned
or leased by the club. The discussion on this
question, it is stated, was Interesting and in
strnctive. The opponents of boxing were, theo
retically. In favor of it just as much as they
were in favor of two contestants competing on
a horizontal bar. One gentleman, however, an
ex-newspaperman, very wisely pointed out that
boxing had degenerated to snch a low level that
no club of repute could well afford to encour
age it. He argued that to patronize the best
class of professional talent was cqnal to giving
business to men who are simply deceiving the
public whenever opportunity affords. He
further Claimed that the members of the club
could learn all the leading principles of either
boxing or any other athletic exercise without
connecting the club with any. professionals at
all. except the instructor.
tvtti. jroT axaow boxing.
As a result it was decided that the club will
not allow or tolerate any boxing exhibition out
side of its members, and then only as an occa
sional incident, under any circumstances.
Begardlng the above President Barker, of the
iE. E. G- was questionea yesterday by a repre
'sentative of .this paper. He said: "Of course
iwe have decided to have no more box! tic at our
'club, that is boxing exhibitions. Whatever
our various opinions about tbe art of self-de-jense
may be, it seems that public exhibitions
of that art will not add any prestige to our
club. Personally. I may say every member of
theclubrecoznizesthe worth of one using his
hands or fists in a time of need. We
can, however, learn this art at onr rooms with
out having public exhibitions. While we are
willing to encourace all legitimate sports by
our patronage we sire not inclined to connect
ourselves with aiding systems and men who are
very questionable in their dealings with the
public We have a wealthy membership, and
gentlemen who are disposed to aid anytbine
onest that is akin to our organization; but
speaking in bChalf of ourselves, I say that we,
in the light of modern transactions, are in
clined to remain free from anything that will
connect us with affairs that none of us care to
"We have engaged an instructor, at a good
figure, to take charge of the athletic features
of the gymnasium. He comes from Chicago
and will commence duties to-morrow. His
credentials state that he will teach members all
.the features of physical development. Now,
(really, that is what we want, and that ought to
'end ail talk."
THE COUNTY LEAGUE.
Haw the 10-Clnb Schedule Can be Carried
Secretary Barr, of the Allegheny County
League, last evening stated that the only way in
which a ten-club schedule coula be arranged
was to commence the season on April 13 and
finish on October 10. This arrangement would
result in .27 games for each dab, and that
would make an odd game. The difficulty,
therefore, 'would be to determine on what
ground each club would hare to play. Accord
ing to ordinary rules the home club would
naturally have the best of tbe bargain in a
monetary sense. This seems a stumbling
Alter considering tbe matter, however, any
body wfllsee that It ought not to De a stumb
ling block at all as far as receipts are con
cerned. Let each club in claying the odd game
.agree to divide tbe receipts. That settled, if it
becomes a question' of respective advantage as
far as grounds are concerned, a toss can be
made for choice of grounds. This is not only
fair, but under the circumstances is business
like; so much so that objectors will probably
be those who don't want ten clubs in the
DULLER. IS READY.
He Will Go With Swartwood If Jimmy
Jimmy Galvin is enthusiastic about the pro
jected baseball trip of Manager Ed Swartwood.
Yesterday Galvin received a letter from George
Miller, the popular local catcher, in which the
latter said that he will certainly go with Swart
wood if Galvin goes. "Gentle Jeems" states,
and very logically, that nobody can stop him or
any other player from going anywhere between
now and April L He further claims that a
hustling trip, snch as a Southern journey
would be, would do him and others good. Gal
vin also says "that if the combination starts
from here' they can pick up D unlap, Conway,
Beckley and Staley, and a team could be put
on the field to make It lively for anybody.
"And well all be the better for the contests,"
On the strength of Miller's letter and Gal
Tin's opinion. Swartwood has written Memphis
and other Southern towns to secure dates and
a guarantee. Of course the boys are not in a
position to run much risk financially, ana if
guarantees are forthcoming they will venture.

CLOUDS IN' THE BALL SKY.
Not a Bnll to bo Turned Till the Grade
Trouble Is Settled.
rBriCIiX TXXEQBAM TO THE DISPATCH.?
New Yoke, February 28. Dark clouds are
rolling up in tbe baseball sky, and as the Pea
son draws near the prospect .for trouble be
comes more threatening. The great horse car
strike of this city will be small compared
with the strike promised by the base
ball players, for tbey say that
not a ball will be turned by a League
player next season unless the present trouble is
settled. The whole trouble comes from the
new grading system, which cuts down many of
tbe players' salaries, whereas tbe League con
tract specifies that a player shall not sign a con
tract for less than the amount of salary he re
ceived during the season before.
Snwders received 2,730 last season, and has
been graded at $2,250. Glasscock received
$3,000, and bis grade calls for $2,500. Denny, of
Indianapolis, and Whitney.of Washington,have
the same cause for complaint. Tbe cases of the
two former men willserve as tes.s,and until they
are settled not a Brotherhood player who has
not as yet signed a contract wlU do so. In tbe
absence of President Ward. J. C. F. Blackhurst
will have charge of the case.
American Trotters In Demand.
The market for American trotters of speed is
spreading in all directions. An Austrian syndi
cate is endeavoring to purchase the famous
trotter Harry Wilkes, 243K. and Rosalind
Wilkes, 2JIH. from the Sire brothers. Harry
Wilkes is held at 20,000 and Rosalind Wilkes
Kcnilworth, tho trotter that was the star of
Mayor Grant's stable, and was sold at auction
last fall, is reported to have died of lung fever
while on tbe way to South America on the
steamship Advance. Kenllworth, while on the
circuit five years ago, under the care of John
Murphy, bid fair to work into the front rank of
trotters, but he appeared to lack the stamina
for braising campaigns. He waslnjnred on tbe
New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad
about two years ago, and that also set him back
for a time. John Scannel paid $3,000 for Kenll
worth at tbe auction sale, and the horse was
shortly sold at an advance to Mr. PeterDuryea,
who intended to enter him in trots abroad.
The horse was subsequently bonght by Mr.
Bicker for $5,600. His last owner thought be
would prove a winner on the track in South.

Brnddock AH Right.
Secretary Barr, of the Allegheny County
League, received definite word yesterday that
the Braddock club had secured grounds. The
club will, therefore, remain in the league, as
stated in yesterday's Dispatch. The Mc
Keesportand Homestead clubs are particular
ly glad of this, as it will tend to keep up an
enthusiasm in these localities that couldn't be
kept up were Braddock not in tbe arena. The
grounds have been secured from the officials of
the Bellevernon Railroad Company.
Season Bnsebnll Tickets.
The officials have decided on the price of
tickets for next season. In prices they have
drawn a wide distinction between the value of
a gentleman's ticket and that of a lady. Of
course the latter is favored, presumably be
cause tne presence or taoies aaas more caste to
the proceedines. However, the price of an
ordinary season ticket will be $33 and only 100
will be issued at that figure. Season tickets
for ladles will only be $10, but the number to
be issued limited to SO. The tickets above
named will be on sale on April I,

John C Eckel Answers the Buckeye
Governor's Recent letter.
MISTAKEN IS THE POLITE TEEM
By Which He Characterizs3 the .Version
Given bj J. Benson.
A DECIDED QUESTION OP YERACITY.
Foraker Was Only Too Rarer to be the Leafier of a
Blaine Stampede. '
The -Governor of Ohio seems to be in
volved in quite a controversy. John O.
Eckel, the Chicago reporter, has written an
answer to his recent letter. Some inside
history of the Chicago Convention is given.
His account of the now famous interview
differs materially from that of Foraker him
self. CrNCnnrATii' February 28. The follow
ing is from John 0. Eckel, assistant city
editor of the Chicago Times,' and formerly
with the Associated Press. It is a reply to
Governor Foraker's recent letter to Murat
Halstead, editor of the Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette,
and is as follows:
Governor Forakers letter to Editor M. Hal
stead, printed in many papers throughout the
country February 27, has been read by me and
its contents carefully digested. Coming from
so high a dignitary in the affairs of the State of
Ohio my surprise cannot be expressed in a
more befitting manner than to characterize tbe.
letter and Its entirety as a very curious docu
ment. Beginning with the statement that he
"never had any formal interview with anybody
at Chicago," he reviews the then existing con
dition of things and in doing so bears out what
I telegraphed in my interview of June 23.
Just what the Governor means by a formal
interview upon great public occasions wonld be
of considerable interest to tbe entire newspaper
fraternity. Upon the evening referred to I sent
my card giving my name and business to his
room. I was thereupon invited by him fo calL
Informing him at once what I desired to know,
be invited me to sit down with him on a sofa,
and began his talk as I reported it to the coun
try. That was formal enough for me and I
thought formal enough for any newspaper
HIS SECRETS KEPT.
That which he asked me not to publish Idid
not publish. I kept faith with him throughout
until his attacks upon the truthfulness of the
interview not alone in Ohio from the rostrum,
but also in a Chicago newspaper. Governor
Foraker is very badly mistaken when he uses
this language: "The statement that I denied
it is not true. I never referred to It, and. In
fact, never thought of it from that moment
unti) now, when it has been reproduced."
On Monday the day on which General Har
rison was nominated there appeared in tbe
Chicago Jribune my interview reproduced
from some out-of-town paper, and following it
was the first quasi denial of what I bad written.
The entire matter was under a display head
with' this caption: "Did Governor Foraker
Say It!" The'THoune interview concerning
my dispatch was then erven as follows: "Gov
ernor Foraker was asked last night if, he made
the statements contained in the interview."
'There is a great deal of misstatement and ex
aggeration in it,' he replied. The room was
crowded at the time, and I could answer tbe
reporter's questions only at intervals and
briefly. He has written up in his own language
and not mine. Tbe facts of the situation at tbe
time were just these:
The delegation had at tbe beginning requested
me to cast a solid vote for Sherman until such
time as they should demand a polL Before
going to tbe convention they notified me that
they should expect to be polled before I an
nounced Ohio's vote. Under these circum
stances, I told the reporter simply that a
was on the programme; that by the time Ohio
was reached it would be apparent whether the
programme was to be carried out, and that if
the stampede occurred there were Blaine men
in the delegation who wonld join in the rush.
That was the sum and substance of the inter
views, tbe rest is embellishment. As to
McKlnley I simply said, casually; that I did not
know whether he was in business for himself
yet or not. The interview, however, is of no
importance now, for the reason that "the situa
tion has changed, and Mr. Sherman's chances
have greatly improved. Ohio will cast her vote
solid for him and his forces all along the line
will stand firm.
'With the understanding that the final Issue
is between Blaine and Sherman, or the man
Sherman shall name?'
'No, sir; we are looking no further ahead than
Sherman, and nowhere else. Beside, Mr. Sher
man cannot transfer the votes of the Ohio dele
gation. They are not that kind.' "
In view of statements in his letter Governor
Foraker will find many matters in the Tribune's
interview which must nowappear alittle incon
sistent. How tbe room could be crowded with
only five persons in it wonld seem to requirean
explanation. Tbe statement that 'I could
answer tbe reporters' questions only at inter
vals briefly,' is also open to comment, for the
fact is that Governor Foraker and myself sat
off in one comer of the room together, away
from other persons. There was but one inter
ruption during the entire time, and that was
when a gentleman entered wbo, I bellevs, was
his private secretary.
EAST TO HTTERVIEW. '
The interview was given without restraint,
and it was the easiest one obtained by me dur
ing the convention. Everything was Blaine at
the time and the Governor was no exception to
the rule of those who wished to lead the proces
sion for the Maine man. Pleading guilty to the
crushinsaccusationtbat Mr. Eckels' interview
was written by him after he had talked with
me,' I submit that the worthy Governor had
f nil knowledge of tbe fact that he had been in
terviewed. He considered it an interview to
all intents and purposes.
After I had obtained it and was writing up I
was approached by several newsnaper men and
asked to furnish them with the balance of
what I had obtained, I declined, but they all
answered by saying that Governor Foraker bad
refused tbem any Information for the reason
that he had talked, fully to the Associated
Press. But by far the best opportunity enjoyed
by the Governor to repudiate in its entirety or
in the minutest detail the interview was when
I paid him a second visit on the evening follow
ine. He' received me' very graciously, and in
order to be alone with me, there being several
others In his reception parlor, he invited me
into his bedroom. I bad heard that he was
trying to throw discredit upon the interview,
from a delegate at large of the Ohio delegation,
and I called upon him to give him all possible
opportunity for any correction or denials.
Handing him a paper I asked him to
enumerate the errors which may have crept
in his statement as printed. He mentioned a
minor matter concerning Major McKlnley, and
I at once offered to telegraph correction, but
he insisted that it was too trifling a matter.
He then told me he was well satisfied with the
interview. On this same evening he furnished
a Tribune reporter with the interview I hare
above quoted. . John C. Eckels.

A stormy scene was enacted in the Lower

to a violent demonstration by the -members of
the opposition. After several members had

Minister von Tisza rose and attempted to re

hisses and groans from the opposition. The
disturbance was continued for several minutes
in spite of the repeated protests of the Presi

in ameasnre restored the Prime Minister began
to reply. He charged the opponents of the bill
with attempting to drag the crown into tbe

Hungary had been led astray by false issues.

to have spoken in the Italian Chamber of Dep

vote wonld have rendered it difficult for

the struggles of a young man to mount
fame's legal ladder under adverse circum
stances. About four years ago a. young colored
gentleman named Reed called at the office of
alprominent attorney in. this city, and asked
to be taken into the office as a student of
that somewhat inexact science "whose seatis
the bosom of God.' " After a cursory .exam
ination of the young man's powers and at
tainments the lawyer advised him to build a
concrete foundation for.future success by a
study of the American Encyclopedia and
then apply as a candidate for preliminary
The young man went away and the lawyer,
in course of time, forgot the matter until a
few days since, when his recollection was
refreshed by the appearance of the young
man, who announced that he, had conquered
the encyclopedia and was ready to be ex
amined on it The lawyer was, in a
measure, paralyzed for a time, but finally
recovered and asked the candidate for legal
renown some questions, which showed -that
he had really conquered that immense mass
of general knowledge from A to Zymosis,
and all the appendices thereunto appertain
ing. The lawyer was amazed, and scarce knew
for a time what further to advise. Finally
he thought of the young law students'
Moot Court Association, and suggested to
the young man that, if he were to familiar
ize himself with the Madison papers and the
Congreuional Globe to date,. he might, with
every prospect of success, demand the right
to membership, and, if refused, apply
"The rule in Splane's case" by application
to the Supreme Court of the organization.
The applicant heaved a 40-horse-nower sigh
as, by degrees, the heft of the addenda was
explained to him: but, nothing daunted, he
announced his determination. to get there if
it took all of several summers, and
Tbe lawyer quiets his conscience with the
reflection that, whether or not the student
finallv succeed in climbing to the fop of the
legal ladder, he will at least have the satis
faction of knowing that he is the best posted
man in general knowledge in the United
States, and will be a regular encyclopedia
of knowledge in law, art, science, govern
ment and general literature.
Some years ago a young manbent on
achieving legal distinction, received some
what similar advice, being recommended as
a preliminary to the study of Bishop on
Criminal Law, to read up Capital Punish
ment in the Encyclopedia. This man
hadn t.the sticktoitivenessof Mr. Beed,and,

Along Newspaper Row.
In Private Secretary Halford's quarters,
there has been more business than ever, to
day. Curing the seclusion of the General
in conferences he has been compelled to re
ceive most of the political callers, and he
has besides endeavored to make some ap
proach to keeping up with the correspon
dence that pours in mercilessly. He
took time during the afternoon, however, to
take a walk along Newspaper Bow, calling
at the offices of most of the leading papers,
renewing old acquaintances and forming
new ones. He seems very anxious to make
a good impression at the start, and has been
much worried over the criticisms aroused
by his notice that he would receive news
paper men at certain hours of the day. Of
fense was taken at this by some of the news
paper men, but the majority 'of them gave
it the liberal interpretation that the lan
guage permitted, and decided that for a Pri
vate Secretary to say that he would see
them at a certain time did not mean that he
would refuse to see them at' any other time.
And this somewhat free interpretation seems
justified from the fact that newspaper men
have been dropping in at 'all sorts of odd
times all day to-day, and have been re
ceived with uniform courtesy.
Son-in-law McKee accompanied the Pri
vate Secretary during his stroll among the
newspaper men and proved himself an agree
ble fellow for one that has never had any
thing to do with a newspaper.
Eussell Harrison, since he got control of
the Republican organ in Helena, Mont,

A NATIONAL 'BANKRUPTCY LAW
Demanded by a Meeting of Business Inter

tSrECIAL TELEGRAM TO TEX DISPATCH.
St Lottis, February ' 28. The business
interests of a large section of the United
States were represented to-day by 75 dele
gates who met at the Southern Hotel to dis
cuss the bankruptcy question. New York
and Boston were strongly represented, the
feeling among the jobbers in the Fast
being- unanimously in favor of a national
bankruptcy law. Mr. J. B., Goddard, of St.
Louis, President of the Wholesale Grocers'
Association, outlined the object of the
commercial bodies of the West, which had
long suffered from the evils of the present
bankruptcy sviftem. The Wholesale Gro
cers' Association of St. Louis sent out an.
inquiry to the commercial organizations in
the leading centers of trade, and fonnd the
sentiment unanimously in favor of a na
tional bankruptcy law. Then the conven
tion was called.
"We want a law," said Mr. Goddard,
"that will provide for the collection and
fair distribution of the assetsof an insolvent
debtor; we want a law that will have this
done quickly and economically; that will
punish fraud and give honest, but unfor
tunate debtors a chance to. resume, business.
We want a law that will allow all the cred
itors to share proportionately in the assets of
an insolvent. We want the little fellow to
have as good a show as tbe big fellow, and
not be frozen out as he is now. You, gen
tlemen, are here to formulate such a bill,
which will be' presented to the next Con
gress." Colonel J. L. Torrey. of St. Louis, was
made permanent chairman. Committees on
rules and bills were appointed and are now
at work. Copies ot a bankrupt bill, drawn
by Congressman-elect Nathan Frank, were
distributed among the delegates. Mr.

rSFXCni. TELEQIIJLM TO THE DISPATCH.
Philadelphia, February 28. One of
the most interesting incidents of the in
auguration day celebration aWashington
Monday will be the initiation into tbe
Grand Army of the Republic of ex-Speaker
Samuel J. Randall, who will be mustered
in under tin most flattering circumstances
that ever surrounded the entrance of a re
cruit into the order. By special dispensa
tion a provisional post representing George
G. Meade Post No. 1, of Philadelphia, will
be organized. . The officers of this
provisional post will be as follows: Com
mander, Hon. William Warner, Kansas
City, Mo., Commander-in-Chief of the
Grand Army; Senior Vice Commander,
Thomas J. Stewart, Department Com
mander of Tennessee; Junior Vice Com

Although a member of Congress during,
the war for the Union, Mr. Randall found
two occasions to tender, his services in the
field. In the outbreakof the war he was a
Sergeant of a Philadelohia city troop, and
he served in the Cumberland Valley in'
Pennsylvania, Maryland, and in the
vicinity of Bunker Hill, Martinsburg,
Harper's Ferry and Charlestown, W. Va.
During the Confederate' advance northward
into Maryland and Pennsylvania in 1863,
Randall was the Captain of the troop, and
served during the emergency. He was
Provost Marshal of Columbia, Pa., for a
time during the period of invasion.

Minneapolis, Minn., February 28.

biased review of each of the counties it was
deemed best not! to rely upon resident cor
respondents or upon communication with
politicians in the different counties. The
commissioner detailed from this office for
the work accomplished his task in exactly
'40 days. To cover a great State like Penn
sylvania, a State the area of which is 44,985
square miles, in that period is a some
what extraordinary feat.
In going from one count seat to tbe other
he traveled nearly 2,500 miles. Redneethis
to an average per day, and add to it the in
terviewing of a dozen -or more persons in,
each town and the writing of two columns
regularly every day, ana any newspaper
man will appreciate the amount . of labor
expended. Tho traveling, and writing en
route, was done by both night and dy. In
some counties feven in the advanced State
ot Pennsylvania) staging and travel by
horses was necessary. Tnese letters and
dispatches from pur commissioner amount
ed in the aggregate to 73 columns, which Is
equal to all the space in more than two
whole numbers of the eight-page Dis
patch. poor detjhjiebe3.
It is marvelous what widespread agita
tion there is on the issue. Onr commissioner
heard the amendment talked of everywhere.
On' lailroad trains, especially, the traveling
public discuss it, and there the people from
other States ask how the State will go.
Commercial travelers, (as a rule, are found
opposing prohibition. They do not fear a
stagnation of business as the resnlt so much
as they do the relieving of hotel proprie
tors from all compulsion in the matterif
caring for the. public. The "drummer"
says that under the Brooks law, and under
other license laws, tbe granting of liquor,
licenses is contingent upon the accommoda
tions a hotel or tivern keeper has for the
traveling public. If no licenses are to be
granted, they say, tbe tavern keeper can go
to bed at 9 o oclock if he chooses, and if a
traveler knocks at his door an hour later,
there is nothing to hinder him from ad
vising the belated drummer, from an up
stair window, to go to Gehenna or some
other lodging place until morning, as he
cannot be. disturbed. Several traveling
salesmen declare that has already been their
experience in some of the country towns of
Pennsylvania now under prohibitory law.
In every railroad station, and at every
countrv crossroads throughout the State
boxes nave been nailed up. bearing the in
scription, "Take one." They contain tracts
and all sorts of prohibition literature sent
out by the temperance societies.' The Good
Templars, who have their headquarters in
this city, have distributed among these
boxes 'nearly 200,000 of these documents.
Already the W. C. T. U. of the State, with
its headquarters in this city also, have sent
throughout the length and breadth of the
Commonwealth 10,000 copies of "The Dev
il's Toboggan Slide," 500 copies of "The
Overawing Curse"' and 50,000 copies of
"Thirty Reasons Why."
- Liquor men too are busily engaged pre
paring tracts for circulation at 'every rail
road depot, in every country store, and on
all the city streets. These will contain sta
tistics about the amount of taxable property
which would be swept out of existence and
the vast monetary loss thev would suffer as
business men if the amendment is adopted.
They are also preparing to make all the
capital possible out of any want of harmony,
or any weakness on the part of temperance
organizations, for, as one of their number
said, if this amendment is to be killed it
will" be by the temperance people them
selves as much as by us. What he meant
was that a great many drinking men were
too firmly fixed in their intention to vote for
the issue to be persuaded otherwise.
MILLIONS A.T STAKE.
As to the figures on their loss the liquor
men's tracts will show that distilleries in
this district- (Twenty-third Internal Rev
enue), use annually 1,472,000 bn:hels of rye,
which at 75 cents by the bushel, amounts to
f 1,104,000. About 328,000 bushels of barley
or malt is also used, which costs $1 per
bnshel. To hold the whisky 140,000 barrels"
are either made or purchased by the distiller
each year, and -cost $330,000. The whisky,
when new, is worth. f25 per barrel, ana the
total value amounts to $3,500,000, and the
Government fax on this at 540 per barrel,
aggregates ,$5,600,000. Their plants are
worth several millions more in this district.
Everywhere the tremendous importance
of tbe struggle is recognized. That the' peo
ple of the second greatest State in the union;
have been called upon to exercise their
sovereignty and decide the liquor question
purely on its merits, is to the minds of
thousands of thinking people, second in its
grave character only to the question of
abolition in ante-bellum days.
IMPORTANCE OF THE ISS.TTE.
In his travels The Dispatch commis
sioner was frequently-reminded that the
adoption of prohibitory amendments in
Iowa, Maine or Kansas was nothing to what
the victory or defeat of the movement will
be here. Those three States put together
didnothavf the population, nnder the last
census, which Pennsylvania alone had. The
Keystone State's population then was 4,282,
891, and is. now considerably over 5,000,000.
We have 1,000,000 voters who will vote upon
this question. The population of Iowa was
1,624,635; of Maine. 648,936; of Kansas,
996,096. And to crown the importance of
the issue, it will affect the second, city of the
Philadelphia and Allegheny counties
were not included in The Dispatch's
special canvass, because nothing definite
can be stated about the three large cities of
the State until the fight develops. However,
it is of course conceded that both the coun
ties will be against tbe amendment, and are
therefore put in the table above to make the
67 counties complete.

Am Opportunity for Mr. Blaine to 'Enforce
His Vigorous Policy.
Boston, February 28. Mr. Blaine will find a
Sonth American tangle awaiting bim when be
steps into Mr. Bayard's shoes. It is a small
tangle, but nevertheless one in which Boston
bas a-considerable interest.
The schooner Mattie A. Franklin left Boston
January 8 for Asplnwall with a largo of fee.
She arrived there January 25, and after dis
charging 30 tons ot ice was prohibited from
landing tbe remainder 'of her cargo by tbe
Colombian Government, and was put under
police surveillance from February 1 until
leaving port on or about February 15.
The Colombian Government had advertised for
bids for the exclusive right to sell ice in Colom
bia, and tbe right was awarded to a borne com
pany at $15,000 a year. As Asplnwall Is a free
port and tbe action of tbe Colombian Govern
ment is deemed a violation ot tbe treaty with
tbe, United States, the Boston Ice Company did
not bid for tbe monopoly.
The company appealed to the United States
State Department, and Secretary Bayard bas
notified tbe Colombian Government that its
action is deemed by tbe United States a viola
tion of rights guaranteed by treaty. Mr. Cook;
the manager of tbe Boston Ice Company, was
arrested forgiving away a small piece of ice,
and was put In prison, bnt released on tbe de
