Victoria, Nor. 32. ��� Magistrate Mac-
R��e, who, some time ago, wns suspended by the attorney general for
wrongful conviction of the; sailor, Liddy, was today formally dismissed. Mr.
MacBae requested an imparti*il investigation into the affair bnt this linn
not been granted him, no answer being retnrned to either of tbe two letters in,wh'ch he made and pressed
this request.
The vacancy caused by tbe dismissal
of Police Magistrate MacRae has been
filled by the appointment of Hezokiah
George Hall, barrister, of this city, to
the post of oity police magistrate and
stipendiary magistrate, and Jthe selection of Peter S. Lampman as ' magistrate to conduct the small dohts court.
Hitherto the police magistrate has been
paid by the city $200 a month, while
for his work at tho small debts court,
hs was reimbursed by the fee system,
the income from this source being
large. Tbe separate salary for the
stipendiary magistrate'was (SOO. By
the new arrangement Mr. HaU, while
discharging the duties of magistrate,
is permitted to follow his provincial
practise and the salary is reduced from
|S00 to $100 a month, payable > by the
city. He also disobarges the dtotios of
stipendiary magistrate without auy
additional emolument and is ex-officio
a member of both licensing and police
boards. In reference to tbe ainiill debts
court, tbo fee system of paying the
magistrate has beeu abolished and
henceforth, the fees will revert to thc
provinoial treasury and Mr. Lampman
will receive a salary   of   $400  yearly.

is 40 years of ago and was bom in Bin-
brook, Wentworth county, Ontario
He came to this provinco in 18b0 and
to the city of Viotoria in 1888. Mr.
Hall has long takeu a lively interest
in moral reform, and the appointment
to his present position gives lively satisfaction among those moving for n
change in tbat respect.
Mr. Peter Lampman was bom in
Thorold, Ont., in IH87, ami took his
degree as bucholor of "arts in Trinify
University, Toronto; Jul 888. He h lis

French Theatre Oo.
Those whom the inclemency of the
weather or the fear of a play in darkness kept from the rink last night
missed a real treat. Tbe "Danites"
wai the attraction billed and it was
put on the boards in right good style,,
but the audieuce was thin, a fact
whioh appeared to produce an allrouud
depressing effect. R. E. French as
Sandy, had all the dash of the man the
author intended, and went through1 the
varied soenes. whether as the protector
of Nanoy Williams or Billy Piper, or
the Widder's accepted, with the rough
and ready grace of a free miner. Miss
Blossom Bordman was particularly
pathetio as Billy Piper, especially in
the scene where hor identity is discovered by the widow or school ma'am.'
Miss French mado up well as Captain
Tommy, and acted the part to perfection. The parson was done amnio justioe to by C). A, Smiley while Kinney
McLeod and Fred Richards did effective work as the Danites. Wallace
Hoper was a typical judge ever loud iu
the praises of "tbis glorious climate of
California," but Paul Bordman is
Wishee Washeo, somewhat overdid the
part. He, however, provoked considerable mirth by his interpretation of
the character. All the characters were
very creditably sustained, and  a per
formance so excellent deserved a better
house. There were the usual high
class specialties between acts, Miss
Blossum, Mamie Holden, Jo epbine
Strong and Paul Bordman being the
���contributors. Tonight "Dad's Girl"
will be produced for the benefit of the
Nelson Hookey Club, and on Thursday

Rev. J. Irvine, rector of St. Michael's church, Vancouver, who is here
in the'interests of the Ancient Order
of United Workmen, says tbat the recent fire at New Westminster has
created quite a boom in tho Royal
���city. Building operations are very
active, and alre.idy some very substantial business blocks are being run np
on Columbia avenue and in other
quarters. The money which the insurance companies paid ou policies is

Dr. Arthur, coroner, was yesterday
apprized of the fact that tho seven
month old infant of G. H. Beardsloy,
of Goat Creek, had been smothered
while sleeping with its parents. The
dead body of the infant was brought

all the circumstances of the case, the
coroner decided tbat an inquest was
not necessary.

Mr. Henry Norman's cable letter to
the Times of Sunday put before the
people of this country a vivid picture
of -tlie -tremendous Enginery of war
which Great Britain is able to marshal
for the defence and Support of her pol-
| icies abroad. That invincible sea pow-
|-err is' impressive on paper as we know
it In naval annals. It is infinitely
more impressive when we see it
mossed, equipped, and despatched to
its station. This power is our closest
friend among all the nations of the
earth. Its interest, particularly its ii.tcr
eats in the far cast, are-interests it has in
common with us. A union of influence
and effort would afford a sure protection to those interests. They will be far
less easily and surely confirmed and
protected by independent effort. It
passes comprehension how President
McKinley could have committed this
nation to a policy of colonial enterprise in the far east without flrst com-
mp to a close understanding with the
great, power, whose alliance with us
would have heen a guarantee of peace,

The   Value   of the Fleet
The  International Conference May Settle
The Behring Sea Difficulty By Ratir
ing the Sealers By Purchase.
Washington, Nov. 22.���The Behring
sea question was the main topic before
the Anglo-American commission today, when it resumed its session after
several days recess. For the flrst time
the two sides were prepared to exchange tbelr estimates on the value of
the sealing fleet, the purpose being to
arrive at some fair valuation and retire
the fleet by purchase. The initio
steps in this direoton were taken
while the commission was at Quebec,
since which time Capt. P. T. Taylor,
on behalf of the Canadians, and Thayer
ou behalf of the Americans, have been
making the appraisement of the   fleet.
frer several weeks at Victoria, whore
the sealers rendezvous, Messrs. Tuylor
and Thayer have arrived hero, accompanied by Captain' Cox, who represents
tbe sealers. The two appraisers made
thoir reports to their respective governments nnd tbese reports in turn
were exchanged by the commissioners
with a view to common a ground of
agreement. It is understood that both
appraisals are considerably below what
was expected and instead of running
into millions, tbey do not exceed over
a half imUK-a U""3er tbe ���rirevwn-
stunces strong hopes ore expressed by
the members of tbe commission that a
sum may be agreed upon for the buy-
ing uf this industry aud the final settlement of this long pending and vexatious coutroversy. It is said, however, that there is still considerable
difference between the appraisals of the
Canadian aud American experts,
which will have to be reconciled before ou agreement is possible. After
tbo joint meeting if tha oommission,
a special committee, consisting of
Lord Herschell and Sir Louis Davies,
Senator Fairbanks and Secretory Foster, took np the Behring sea estimates.
Besides the written reports of the appraisers, the latter were called in person aud examined regarding the sealing fleet.
Furniture Ordered That May  Not Arrive This Year.
Dr. Arthur, secretary of the board
of school trustees, was seeu yesterday
by a Miner representative as to the
lack of accommodation, numerous complaints having beeu made as to the inconvenience which the children aro
called upou to endure. The doctor explained that so far back .is August last,
wben Inspector Wilson visited this
district, attention was called to the
overcrowded state of the school and
tbe want of additional desks, etc. The
requirements not having been atteuded
to, a letter was addressed to the educational department iu September, reiterating the wonts of the school.
Tbis communication appears to havo
been ignored by tbe department, and
again last month another appeal was
forwarded by the board of school trustees. A couple of weeks ago this letter was answered, aud the trustees
Vi ere authorized to secure the necessary
furniture for the additional class rooms
added to the building, a spocial appropriation of $350 being made for
this purpose. The ordor was ploced in
the hands of a local firm, ond by them
sent on to tho Ofrleo Spocialty Co., of
Toronto, with a request for prompt
Tho firm wrote back to soy that they
could uot fill tho order till ibe end of
the month, and then they were wired
to place it in the bauds of some person
who could fill it at ouce. Since then
nothing has boon heard of tbe desks,
and tho consequence is that in Miss
O'Reilly's room the children have no
school furniture. A few forms serve
all purposes, so that writing is out of
tbo question, and the slate work done
on the laps nf He little ones is unsatis
factiry. When' lhe desks will arrive

He Jumps Into the King to Tnterefere
With the Fighters-Referee Says
the Aotioi Waa Pre-arranged
New. York, Nov. 22., at the ringside, Lennox Athletic club.���The 20
round fight between Jamea J. Corbett,
of California, the ox-ohampion heavyweight boxer of the world, and Tom
Sharkey, of Dundalk, Ireland, who
first showed his prowess as a fighter
while serving the United States as a
blue jacket in the navy, drew an enormous crowd of sporting men to the
Lennox Atbletio   dub  honse  tonight.
In fact such a representative gathering of the sporting element from all
over the country was never within the
oity limits at one time before. When
the contest was certain to take place
without auy legal iutereference many
hundred admirers of the art of self defence were induced to make long journeys in order to be at the ring side
when tbe fight took plaoe. Nearly
overy city of any prominence in the
United States and Canada was represented by parties of at last a dozen and
in many instances delegations numbered over a hundred came from the
different sporting centers. A week ago
when the tickets fnr seats were first
put on sole, the shrewd people who
lived quite a long distance from this
city-pither wroteor wired for seats to
be reserved and by doing so thev saved
themselves a lot of trouble on their ar
rival here. Those who saw far enough
ahead to do this were only comparatively few, however, and for the past
few days there was a lively scramble
tu secure good seats. Today not a seat
was to be had at the club house after
1 o'clock and those wbo had not made
early provision had to pay exorbitant
prices to the wide awake speculators
who had snapped up the best seats
early iu the game. Tickets for seats in
the immediate vicinity of the ring
brought fabulous prices tonight. Tbe
original cost of these paste boards was
$20 eaeb, but tonight twice that sum
could not purchase one of them and tn
two instances they brought $100 apiece.
The otber tiokets costing from $5 to
$15 brought prices increased two and
three fold and the club management
did not put any of the $3 admission
tickets on sale. The anxious sports
who clamored for admission at the entrances gladly paid $6 and in many
cases $8 for the privilege of standing
up at tbe extreme ends of the building.
The doors of the big building were
thrown open shortly after 6 o'clock.
At that early hour hundreds of people
were waiting patiently in front of the
club house ou Lexington avenue. As
soon as tho first comers passed through
the turnstiles others took tbeir places
on the outside and tbis continued for
over three hours. The crowds were
kept in check by a large force of police
under the command of Inspector McLaughlin and Captain Brown.
Inside tbo building all was bustle
and excitment, hut at 8 o'olock the
house was scarcely filled. This was
easily accounted for by the fact that as
tho big event was not scheduled tu tako
place until about 10 o'clock, tbe holders of coupous for reserved seats were
in no hurry to get up town to be cooped up for any unnecessary length of
timo. The gambling instinct was in
evidence as soon ns tbe sports began to
.other in tho boxes.
The betting on the fight was $100 to
JW) in favor of Corbett and big wagers
were made. Both men were in splendid conditio::. Kid McCoy was admitted as a spectator under disguise. He
was immediately ejected by two police
detectives and be left quietly though
under protest, Sharkey weighed tbis
afternoon 175 and Corbett 183 pounds.
10:28 p. m.���The great crowd is notably patient and waiting without complaint for wbat is expected  to   be   tbe
greatest battle since the  Sullivan-Cor-
bett dispute in New Orleans.    Corbett
orrived at the Club house at   10:10 p.
ra. with MoVey and Considine.   Ohar-
lie Harvey, official announcer, entered
the ring at 10:25 followed by Sharkey.
Corbett bowed and smiled to the crowd
as he passed through   to  his dressing
room.    At 10:80 Sharkey and   Corbett
were both in the ring aud  wheu  Referee Kelly entered he shook bands with
both men.     Sharkey's  seconds  wore
Tom O'Rourke, Geo. Dixon and Jack
I Doherty.       Corbett's    seconds   were
j Charley White, George Considine  and
I Jack McVby-    Sharkey had  both  his
I bonds bandaged   whin   he  came  ou.
i Chief Deveny in full uniform   took   a
seat at the side of tne stage.    "Honest
John" Kolly, the referee, mounted tho
platform and shook hands  with  both
men. Corbett provided his own gloves,
whioh   t harkny   pronounced  satisfactory.    The men  discussed   as  to  the
rules to be observed,   Corbett arguing
I his own case.    The aunouncer stated
the terms of the contest to he 20
rounds, catoh weights, for heavy
weight championship of the world.
The men stripped at 10:55, both
looking well. Corbett wore a belt of
tbe national colors, whioh he removed
before the fight began. Sbarkey wore
green trunks with a flag for a belt.
Corbett wore white trunks. The referee
warned them tbat there must be no |
bitting in the clinches.
First Round.���The men fiddled for
several seconds and Jim made a left
lead for the head. Tom responded
with a left and right on the same spot.
Corbett led again, Tom responding
with a left swing for the head, which
landed. Sharkey ripped in left and
rights for the body with some effect.
Be kept forcing Jim into tbe various
corners, punching with right and left
on the body, which seemed to be his
objective point. Jim feinted and tried
to draw his man on. Sbarkey was
always ready with his left jab. aud
right swing, wbioh invariably landed
on the body. Corbett failed 'to show
any of the great cleverness which he
has been credited with. The round
ended with Sharkey at his mon.
Seoond Round.���Corbett landed with
the left lightly. Tben there was on
exchange with lefts and rights on the
head, in which Sharkey showed to
advantage. Jim kept trying to pnsb
his left mit into Tom's face and the
sailor would come right back with a
swing on tbe body. He was inclined
to be a trifle wild and was frequently
cautioned by O'Rourke, his chief second. Tom put a straight right on
Jim's nose, wbich seemed to bring
the blood to tbat member and then he
put in a right hand smash on the jaw
which sent Corbett down. He attempted to repeat the dose, but was foiled,
as Jim clinched. Tbe round closed
with Tom all over his man.
Third Round.���Corbett led with his
right for tbe body, landing, and Sbarkey responded in kind. Jim reached
the body several times, but Tom oame
right back with lefts for tbe head. A
right on the body staggered Jim.
Sbarkey whipped over a tremendous
right hand smash on the jaw. Tho
sailor's leads were ineffective, his
counters being the blows which cut the
flgnre. Corbett kept jabbing lightly
for the head and Sharkey came back
at him with a right smasher on the
Fourth Round.���The sailor was
rigbt after his man and assayed lefts
and rights for tbe head, landing every
time. Corbett clinched and acted entirely on tbe defensive. Corbett led
his left for tbe head, landing on the
neck and Sbarkey sent back a hard
right on the body. Corbett began to
do some punching and jabbed his man
at will, but at long range, Tom having
always a oounter ready. Corbett repeatedly led his left and damaged
Sharkey's faoe. The sailor charged
him into a comer and received a series
of jabs for bis action.
Fifth Round.���Jim reaches Sharkey's
month with his left and repeats tho
same thing twice a mon.ent later.
Tom reaches for Jim's eor. (Jorbett
counters with a right on the jaw and
tben lands two rattling upper cuts on
the jaw. Jim jabs his left on Sharkey's face and Tom chops bis left on
Corbett's oh in. Sbarkey misses a
swing but reaches Corbett's faoe with
bis left. Jim laughs. Tom scores half
a dozen misses. Jim jabs his left on
Sharkey's mouth as the gong sounds.
Sixth Round.���Sharkey rushes and
they exchange lefts on the head. Tom
lands his right on the ribs and then
jabs his left on Corbett's face. He
then swings his left to tbe jaw ond
pounds his right on Corbett's ribs.
Jim lands bis right on the stomach.
Jim lands twice on tbe stomach ond
Tom winces. Jim jabs Sharkey's
cheek and Tom puts his left on Corbett's jaw. Jim lands his left on tho
stomaoh, while Tom chops liis left on
Jims shoulder. Jim reached his left on
Sharkey's ear and jabs his noso with
the left. Tom gets back with u good
left on the chin. Corbett ducks a left
lead and jabs his left on Tom's mouth.
Sharkey plants his right on Jim's
ribs as the bell sounds.
Seventh Round.���Sharkey ran across
tbe ring and planted a right and left
on tbe head. Corbett acted on defensive aud seemed unable to withstand
Sharkey's rasheB. Tho latter whipped
in a beautiful book on the wind und
followed it up with a right on the
jaw. Tbe sailor kept doing all the
work und was always ready to mix up
on the slightest provocation. He alter
uately threw his left and rigbt on the
bead and body, occasionally changing
to left hooks on tbe wind which were
slowly but surely attending to Corbett's case. It waB Sharkey's fight so
for and the pace was tern tile.
Eighth Round.���Sharkey was the
flrst to land a left chop on tbo neck.
They clinched frequently aud the referee was kept busy separating them.
Tom tried a left chop blow which fell
short and Jim jabbed his left hard on
tbe nose. Sharkey Bent a rigbt straight
to tbe face which made Jim's head
rock, but Jim was ready witb a left
hook which grazed Sharkey's ear.
Both men foub d and clinched repeat,
edly. Jim hooked bis right burd on
Tom's jaw, half dazing bim. He
quickly recuperated aud wont bock at
his man, hammer uud tongs.
Ninth Round.���Corbett lauded  with
bis left, Tom getting right bock at the
same moment.   Clinches were frequent
and tbe meu refused to break together.
Corbett struck Tom rather low on   the
belly and Tom appealed to tbe referee.
Corbett shoved  Tom   from   him   and
said:   "Oh, you go away. "   The men
were in the centre of the ring  mixing
| it up in  a  lively  manner,   O'Ronrko
i culling to Tom not to  mind  Corbett's
' low hitting.   Just at this moment, for
! some  unaccountable    reason   MoVey,
lone  of  Corkbett's   seconds,    jumped
through   the  ropes,    protesting    that
Sharkey had done something wrong to

Tomorrow, Thursday Nov. 24, has
been set aside by the Governor-General
as a day of thanksgiving to God, for
tbe blessings he has bestowed on this
fair land. On the same day
the people of the great nation to the
south of us will also render thanks for
the great benefits they have received
from Him who said "seed time and
harvest shall not cease. " lu Canada
this has been an extremely prosperous
year. From one end of the country to
the other tbere has been generol activity. Miners, farmers, merchants, and
laboring men have profited as they
never did before. Tbere has been an
immense yield of grain iu the agricultural districts; there has beeu a general
revival in trade; lands foreign in their
remoteness if not in their relations,
have taken more from us and sent us
more in return than for many years
past and tlie good effect has been felt
everywhere. The year has nlso seen
a great expansion of tho mining industry, placing Oanada among the
foremost mining countries in the
world. And it is in these two lines
that Cannda will win great eminence���
in agriculture and in mining, the oniy
millings thai produi o something from
nothing, the only callings that arc deserving of all lhe protection possible at
tbo bunds of the government.
There ore few cnuutrios in the world
where there is so much prosperity, so
much comfort, as there is at the present time in Canada; no land of the
same population where so many, from
thc highest to llie lowest, own there
homes and where the home life is so
staid, so peaceful, s�� happy, and. the
home with the Anglo-Saxon is tho
foundation of the state. Through the
mountains, over the great plains1 and
by the hikes and rivers of the enst,
from ocean to ocean it may be said,
there is a buoyant, hopeful, confident
population, patiently and���persistently
working ont the great destiny of this
country under the guidance of Him
whojiolds the world in the hollow of
His haud; as virile, as true, as trustworthy a race of men as any country
could present. Tlieir land has been
productive and llie work of their
bonds has been rewmded. Pestilence
and famine, great calamities and persecutions, have troubled othei parts of
the world and the dismal roor of war
is hoard around the eorth. but they
havo dwelt in peace, secure under
God's providence from tbe afflictions
nnd misfortunes that beset the natious
leading wayward lives.
Canada has every reosou to observe
this day of special thanksgiving, enfolding ns it dues the principle that
men dn not live and prosper of their
own wills, but that thore is some
great directing powor that it is eminently proper Unit we should recognize
with praise nnd gratitude and devoutly
render thanks to fnr guiding ns with
unseen bunds intn paths of pleasantness  and peace.
Au investigation should be held into
the granting of bail to MnGinty, one
of the men arrested in connection with
the outrageous attempt to forcibly expel Chinese from the Saudon district.
It appears that he made application
for bail to one official who refused-' it,
but that a second one, a magistrate, to
whom application was made, grouted
on order. McGinty, upSn regaining
his liberty, immediately disappeared
and as there is little likelihood of his
return, he thus escapes punishment
for his offence, if he be guilty, whioh
he probably is. Bail should not hp.ve
been given in thiB case, arid' wiry it
wss given, thus affording opportunity
to the accused to escape, Bhould. be
enquired into.
The Chinese are not wanted here
and there wonlij be no regret  if tbey

to come here nud they purchase their

certificate entitles them to the. same
protection as any other denizen of the
oountry can claim. Those, who undertook to drive them out of the Sou-
don district were from the Coeur
d'Aiene country, where mtn oreoccusi
tomed to toke the law into their own
hands, but here Ihey set themselves in
Jeflance to British law, which is a
very different matter. Whenever a
mob in China assails English or American missionaries or travellers * the
representative of oither country nt Poking demands, an apology, compensation,, and the punishment of the offenders. A man of war drops around tn

same principle tho Chinese government
would bave good cause to demand reparation from Canadians' and Ameri-
niius for any wrongs perpe'troted on the
Chinese in this country. But they
happen lo be. weak aud snob a demand
on their port would bo laughed . at.
But the law here is no respecter of
persons and whoever offends against it
must take tho consequences.    .     . .

The people or Nelson ure desirous
that this city Bhould beoome a divisional point on the Crow's Nest Pass
railway, and the city council and tbe
board of trade will take action with
that end in view. As these matters
are regulated by distance, the railway
company may not be found williug to
acquiesce iu Nelson's wishes in this
respeot.    Divisional points are   plaoed
from oue hundred to one hundred   and
twenty miles apart, that being deemed I tlio emperor went to Koine with
The Emperor William has taken his
departure from the domaivs of 'tberSul-
tau, nnd the unhoppy subjects of that
potentate are now left to reckon up the
cost and settle with the tax-collectors.
The festivities incidental to the visit
of the imperial freak have eaten the
poople up. The magnificent presents
which tha Sultan gave his royal friend
will be remembered for many a day
by the Turks who will have to pay for
them. The generosity of th?' Sultan
cannot be doubted, but it is of the
Bame order ns that of tlie philanthropist, who out of compassion, gives
his overcoat to some coatless man he
meets in the street and then borrows
$20 of his nearest acquaintance with
which to get another. Whatever the
Emperor admired the Sultan gave to
him. Tho piece of laud at Jerusalem
which was graciously presented to the
German, was forcibly token from the
owner, who will not oniy not receive
anything to cover his loss, but may,be
severely punished for disputing the
Sultan's will. This is a way absolute
monarcliB hove. No wonder Europe
loughs at the royal pilgrimage. The
Sultan iB the hobo of continental royalties, and liko the common hobo he waa
extremely liberal with that which he
filched from those about him, nnd the
Emperor gravely accepted everything
us a tribute to his greatness. And he
leaves an impoverished people and deep
curses behind him.
One is remiuded of his unwelcome
visit to Italy some years ago. When
King Humbert and Queen Murguerito
arranged for the celebration of their
silver wedding, tbey decided that
thoso invited should be confined to
their immediate connections of the
house of Savoy, because tboy were poor
and could not afford an entertainment
consistent with their purse, they were
astonished to receive from Berlin an intimation that the Emperor oud his
suite would nil end the proceedings.
Tin ir feelings cau   bo imagined.    And
sufficient run for an ongine. Nelsou
is more than this distance from
on as a divisoual point, und is a much
less distance from Kootenay lauding.
However, the company conld stretch a
point iu favor of Nelsou if it wished.
Still, to make this departure from rule,
it is probable thot the compauy will
look for some inducement and what
that shall be lies with the board ot
trade uud the city couucil to  say.      If
Inch has been decided up-  and home
five persons in his suite nnd nearly eat
aud drank poor Humbert out of house
In presents nnd items of entertainment it must hove coBt the
economical king a fine penny, all of
whicli William accepted as his due.
But in private when Hurabort aud his
estimable queen come to go through
tlieir depleted bank book therej must
have boon comments strong enongh to
warrant penal servitude for life for
lese niujeste.

Corlieit. The moment MoVey climbed
through the ropes Pnli��� Inspector Mc-
LtiuKliliu grnbhed hold of him, while
the oorwd frantically yelled, "Foul,
Curhett loses. " "Look at his second
in the ring.'' Referee Kelly seemed
to pav no attention to the matter, but
stood* looking at the fighters, who continued their aggressive work. MoVey
tried to pull away from the inspector,
while tho spectators kept yelling at the
referee, who finally separated the
fighters und ordered them to their
oorners. Corhott seemed not to understand why the referee should interfere
and protested, hut Kelly wa, obdurate
and stopped the bout.
Meanwhile the spectators stood up
atd yelled that bets should be declared
oft, as they believed MoVey committed
the breach of ring rules intentionally.
It looked for a while as if a riot would
ensue, but as soon as the referee declared Sharkey the winner <>n a technicality, ho announoed that all bets
were off, stating that MoVey's action
was undoubtedly prearranged. Aa soon
as this announcement was mado the
spectators resumed their seats and
awaited the departure of the men from
the ring.
One of the greatest fights of the century waa a disappointment to the vast
crowd assembletd to see it. The referee's decision declaring all bets off is
taken as an indication that ho believes
the tight to havo beeu a fake. Sharkey's admirers are greatly pleased.
���We met her at the railroad station, ten
miles from the fort���a captain and sergeant and his squad���and she made the rest
of the journey in an ambulance, seated beside tho officer. It may have been known
among the officers aud their families for
weeks that sho was coming���a blue eyed,
fair haired girl of 18 from the east named
Miss Boll���but the first wo heard of lt was
when we went to the depot as an esoort.
*Ko did not know whether wo were to meet
man or woman until Captain Johnson
came out of the buildiug with her. We
oould uso our eyeB and talk to each other,
and we woro not two ralnutos in deciding
that tho now arrival was a "peach" and
that wo wero glad she was going to honor
tho fort with her presence. The escort
was more u matter of form than necessity,
although thero were rough, rude men on
thc frontier in thoso days, und there had
been Instances where half drunken men
had to be severely handled.
Miss Bell wub a regular chatterbox and
full of natural curiosity, and she'd hu\u
had a word with every soldier In tho escort
but foi the captain's admonition. Sho
couldn't understand ihowido gulf separating officer from private, but ln her awful
Ignorance a soldier was a soldier, no matter whether he carried a sabor or a swurd.
Being left ulono with Sergeant Larkins
for a few minutes While the captain sent
ofT a telegram for her, si ��� did not hesitate
to ohntternway as if she od been formally
Introduced pnd hod met before, and this
action of hers was to havo a strange bearing on after events. After a couplo nf
days wo noticed a chango in Sergeant
Larkins. H�� was a young man of 80, well
educated and evidently something above
the oommon, ar.d there wero rumors that
his father Was a wealthy Now Yorker and
that the son and entered tho army because
of a quarrel between them. Ho hnd beon
speedily promoted from private to sergeant,
and thero wero those who said that outside
Influence wns the causo of this. Howover
that may have beon, the sergeant was
prompt in h,s duties, respectful to his superiors and liked by all the men. I repeat
that wo saw a change In him, aud pretty
soon it came to us that he bad fallen in
love with Miss Hell at flrst sight. It wss
tho sheerest fully under the circumstances,
but these things are generally beyond oon-
trol. The feeling wns likely all on his
part, and military discipline would soarccly
permit him to use his eyes to see hor across
the parado ground.
A little ring of us laughed and made
merry behind the sergeant's buck, but later on lt sobered us to realize that he was
seriously in earnest. He committed a
breach of discipline ln placing himself
where he oould Bpeak to her, and he wns
sharply reprimanded for neglecting his
duties, and by and by half n hundred men
got to know that the sergeant had lost his
head over Miss Bell. If sho had ever even
mentioned his name after arriving at tho
fort, no one hail hoard of the Incident. Wo
came to know tlint she was of a stylish,
wealthy family, and we voted thot -Sqr-
geant Larkins ought to havo his Head
sandpapered fur making a dunce of himself.
Miss Hell Iuul beon at the fort about a
month when the Simtton the reservation
began to mako trouble, and tho Indian
police reported that a number of thein
had brnUeii away and woro marauding In
the foothills, Such stories were always
afloat, and no credence was given them
until some lined of vlolonco had been committed, lt had been planned by half a
dozen ollicers and their wives to hold a
picnic at the falls nf Buffalo river, and hut
for tao reports from tho reservation they
would have -tone w 11 bout escort. Tho colonel favored tho picnic, but Insisted that
an escort go along, and so Sergeant Larkins and llie same half dozen of us wire
again detailed. Without tho knowledge bf
thu ladies we were ordered to take u0
rounds uf cartridges per man, and all tho
officers weiv armed with revolvers. It
was 12 miles to tlie falls, and the picnickers woro loaded into two ambulances.
There were live offlcors, sevon ladles and
three children, and iho escort was ordered
to keep them In sight. While wo were
nominally under command of Sergeant
Larkins, Captain WiHinms would have
charge ln case ot any trouble arising. We
gavo the ambulance half tt mile the eturf*,
and then trotted after, and nothing worthy
of note happened on tho march out. To
reach the falls one hail to enter a gorgo
from a small valley and proceed up a narrow and rocky path on foot for half audio.
The ambulance and uur horses wero left in
this valley, and after two of the oscorts
had carried up tho baskets of provisions
they returned to us and we prepared for a
comfortable day.
From the first Sergeant Larkins sat
apart from us and soemod moody nnd
taciturn. There was no question butwbttt
Jealousy was at work, and he hadn't the
strength of mind to throw it off aud realize the situation. We had many a wink
��� and laugh at his expense, and yet wo felt
tc pity him As the wind blow down tho
gorgo we caught the luughtor of the women and the shouts of the children now and
thou, and tho hours passed away and we
twd no thought of danger.   We had bass

woro following the sergeant up. the gorj-.i,,
and In five minutes we came up*"*" ��m6
women aud children hidden away anion'?
the rocks and stricken with terror. A
quarter of an hour before. tho five officers
had caught sight of a cub bear on the oilier side of tho falls. They had gone up
stream a few rods and crossed on a lopr,
but the shon we heard had not been flivd
tt t he oub. A band of 20 or more renegades 'Who wero hiding in the foothills
bad discovered the picnickers half an hour
before and wero planning a wipe out of every soul when the officers moved. They
played right into the hands of the red mon.
In their chase after the cub they left the
falls half a mllo behind, ond as they came
slowly back they found the Indians confronting them. There was Uut ono cou. se
���to make a dash for lt���and lt was gallantly dono. The Indians were too strong
and too well posted, howqver. A Ilouten-,
ant was dropped dead ln his tracks and a
major and a cuptain wouqded, That would
have left but two men against 20 but foi
our presence.
The flrBt move on our part, seeing that
the womon and children wero safe, was to
secure cover behind the bowlders and opon
fire on the Indians. They had counted on
a sure thing, and their yells of rage when
they knew of our presence were loud and
long. We had them between two fires,
and yet bo well were they sheltered thai
we could not get sight of a head. The redskins knew that we had no means of knowing that they had ,only two unwounded
men ln front of them armed With revolvers. The women told us about the officers
going away ln a body, but'although there
had been severe firing we hoped none of
them had been hit.
After wo had fired three or four rounds
apiece thc sergeant called out to know how
it was with the officers. The major' answered, giving the names of the killed and
wounded. Three of the five were behind
the same bowlder and could uso their revolvers. It was a curious position in
which the three parties were placed, but
as the Indians wero ln such strong forco
they could defend their front and rear ut
tho same timo. If we left cover to cross
tho creek, wo would be exposed to cortain
death. If they left cover to attack the
camp, we had only to shoot them down.
What we feared was that they would got
out of the tr-.p bytfashlng upon tho officers In front, or work to the left, and
finally take them ln tho rear. The women
and children could have boen assisted
down the gorge and sent off at onco, but
no ono thought of retreat until tho order
came from the major. Three-quarters of
an hour after our arrival he hailed us to
sivy that Cuptain Johnson, wounded by
tho flrst volley, was dead. Lieutenant
Blaine, wounded at the same time, was
now helpless, nud the Indians wore working to their rear on both flanks. The two
unwounded mon must fall buck, carrying
tho llculena.it with them, and hopo to
roach a more seoure spot; The sergeant
was ordered to send a-messenger to tbo
fort and at tho same time got tho women
and ohlldron to the nmbulanco nnd off. Tho
escort wns to see them to the fort, nnd the
colonel would order out a company to return.
A messenger wos hurried off, nnd while
threo men remained ut tho falls, tho other
throe helped the women and children down
and soon had tliem loaded up. Then two
of the three i.;en left* at the falls appeared.
Bergerfnt Larkins had remolded b. hind t
hold thc bridge. Tho sharp eyed Indiana
would get-on to the retreat in front cni'.
rear, and they would no sooner become
aware of tl.e movement from the fall
than they would follow on. Hoth of tin
other two hud offered to remain, but* tlu
sergeant hnd ordered them on. The'Bin
tmluncehad scarcely turned awheel before
wo heard t'io report of his carbine and
realized that t ho Indians wero spoking to
forco the crossing. Wo counted a scco: d
and third shot, and then started off, every
woman and child weeping and wailing.
At any moment we might run upon inert
Indians, and It was not until wo 'met :������
company of troopers within a inilo of th
fort that we felt safe. 'Ihey halted for .
few seconds to ask for particulars, um'
then tore nhcad, ond.lt wus uiidiil iht b.'-
foro we knew I ho result of tbelr r'..lo. A>
they reached tho valley where we of thi
escort had dismounted, they heard ���o-cn
uional shots from up tbo gnr~B. .Mo. :y
thom wero the reports of Winchesters', uu
now and then thoy caught the heavi
sounds of an army carbine.
Sergeant Larkin wob still holding tl '
bridge, still wailing and hoping. Fiji,
dismounted men rushed up tho fcoi'30 ycli
lng and choiring as they went, and lou.
or five Indians roso up from behind Rl
many buwlders and too',; lo flight. Tw<
of them wero brought down OS they rr.1.
The others escaped. Tlie sergeant, ha
scarcely been luft ulono when tho India::
attempted to cross liy the log. Ho sin
two of them, und then a dozen ur more ol
theni worked upstream to another crossing ond can 1 crawling down on his side.
Ho soon discovered what they were at, bl I
he would not retreat.    Tbey said hu coal.I
hove passed down  the gorge to the vn!l*���}
and hidden awnynnd suved his life, hut I 1
probably hold his place undor tho Idea thn
he was' giving the rotreating ofnuorfl .*
ohance for their lives.    Foot by loot Un'
Indians had crept  upon him, ami  us tin
cheers of tbo  rescuers were heard  ho re
solved the   falal  bullet.    He could spca:
wheu they lli'tcd his head.
"They aro over that way," ho replied a
they asked about, the major's party. J
Two minutes later, ns his own captnl 1
bent over him and spoke words of sympathy and Wiped the bloody foam from hi
lips, tho Rer^cant asked :
"Did thoy reach tho lort sofelyf"
"I was ofrold they would be wiped out
unless I held the crossing,   gho���slie l-W*
er spoke to 11,0 once, and yet I���I did it fol
Ver sake���for her sake I" .
"For whose sake!'" asked the Captain.
But tho sprgeant was dead.
They found thc major and his two com'
railes posted iu the woods a mile awoj
waiting for rescue, but   ready to light to
tho last, while the dead oflloers hud been
spared the mutilation URimlly Inflicted by
tho heartless Hends.   At the fort somo said
that Sergeant Lorkins did not act with
good  judgment,  othors  that he was   a
hero.    Wint Miss Bell snid, if anything,
wo never heard. Shu was doubtless thank-
ful, os.w'ei'e the other ladies, but she neve:
suspected that the soldier loved her and,
died thinking of hor alone,    Some ont
ooiil'dlinve told her, but he never did.���
