In thc event of a.  general hand-to-hand conflict it is  likely that'blood will be shed and  surgeons  called.  The trouble began late on Tuesday  afternoon  on C.P.R. property, lluou-  n-h  which  passed the contested right-  of-way of the V.V. & E. The former  road had -ten or twelve men guarding  the     ground   when  a sudden  descent  was made by over a hundred V.  V.  & E. lahoiers.   The latter tore down  the tents   of the C.P.R. men      and  drove     them off the grounds.   Word  was     immediately sent  to Midway,  and all the available  men in       this  locality were hired and sent out   to  fight  the V.V, & E. men.  The relieving force reached ,the  disputed . strip yesterday  morning,   and  then   the   fun   began,   for  during  the  previous night the V.V.  &  E.      had  increased   its   fighting   force   lo  three  ���������hundred, nun.  and   the  C.P.R.  could  muster, but half  that  number.

Mr. f omeroy, who is in. the hcavyi  weight class, said   that he heard rapid footsteps following him as       he  turned   into  Prior  street  from Westminster     avenue.    He could  not see  three feet ahead,    lie was just turning around to ascertain the cause ot  tlie     rush,    wlun  two masi.cd men  loomed up out of the fog.   Then one  of them  u.mged him  o\er  thc top oi  thc  head     with  a blunt  instrument.  Mr.  Pomeroy  fell  in a heap, but did  not lose consc ...tisness.   The two hold  up men went through his  pockets but  Mrs. Win. Walker was the recipient  of a souvenir  from   Grace Methodist  Church     choir    on  Tuesday .evening  last.   The members of the choir,    of  which'   up to .the time of     her marriage,  Mrs.   Walker   has  been   a valued     moniker,  subscribed a handsome  gift in the form of a silver revolving   t.lie greatest   praise  for  butter  dish  and   Knife  and  a pair   'of (miiiiiW  jn   which' every  the     Order being  the  main  feature.

Already the Opera House is booked, for  two  benefit  concerts  and   dances;   the  Pomeroy    and  his   220  pounds  rose  from  the sidewalk.  In the excitement thc thieves .overlooked the bartender's diamond p/)n,  whose blinding sparkle, failed to pene-  tmte_ the fog. Mr. Pomeroy is employed at the Bodega.

One clay  during the manoeuvres of the army a  cavalry regiment charged at a strongly  entrenched   and   embattled  village,  of  which the  garden  Avails   were lined with marksmen.   "Mon Picu!" exclaimed   the  Russian .representative,  "That    regiment   is      lost."   "No,"  was  the Emperor's calm reply, "the  regiment isn't,  but the colonel   certainly is.".

DAILY LEDGER  ARE  WOMEN AN  UNDESIRABLE ELEMENT  Judging- by the newspaper comment  'on the lion Grover Cleveland's late  article against equal suffrage, the  public attaches little importance to  Ins elaborate dissertations on the divine intentions regarding woman's  sphere. The one sentence in his argument which is quoted and seems  to be regarded as carrying weight is  that -'the voice of the thoughtful and  m  vote.      They  are constantly  changing  their      residences.     and  their  names.'  They  do     not wish  to give any  dat-a  concerning  themselves, their  age,    or  number and     street.     They .prefer to I  remain  unidentified."  There is no evidence that women  are more thoughtless than men- and it ;  will hardly be claimed Ihat the.maior  ity of American women are purchasable. Ihe smaii number who can be  bought arc a mere drop in the bucket- compared wit-h the vastly larger  number who cannot. In three of the  four equal     suffrage slates,  it is not  conscientious   (among   women)   woukl  almost certainly he largely outweighed   by  those of  the <J..sreputable, the.claimed by our opponents  that any wo  ignorant,   tho     thoughtless,  the   pur- man has ever sold her vote  and in   the  chased and the coerced." the fourth, the number of women who  j Mr. Cleveland admits that this is liave done so are a mere fraction of  now the rase to a considerable extent'the number of men.  among men, but he claims that in or-1 But Jlr.

Jesse entertained the notion that the  present day type of lawyer was net  to be compared with the jurists ,of the  old days. One day as he was entering  the courthouse at Beattyville he noticed a group of lawyers who were discussing the points of a case that was  to come up that day. Cole, disgusted  by their conversation, stepped up to  them and said:  " 'Gentlemen, thirty or forty years  ������go the lawyers in this state were  ���������hen���������great, big, immense men, wearing fur hats as big as bushel baskets.
