GQ8T OF THE FIASCO
Cincinnati Saengerfest As
sociation a Heavy Loser.
BRADY AND MADDEN ALSO OUT
Jeffries' Manager In Disgusted With
Championship Contests Athletic
Club Pay Its Forfeit Gov
ernor Xnsh's Intentions.
CINCINNATI, O., Feb. 15. The Jeffries
Ruhlln contest, scheduled for tonight.
"was declared oft judicially yesterday and
officially today. Judge Holllster today in
dorsed the entry of the decree forbidding
the contest. A significant feature of
Judge Hollister's decision Is that the
Saengerfest Athletic Club Is enjoined also
from accepting hereafter from the Mayor
any permit for a sparring match, a glove
contest or a prizefight. The entry is made
bo sweeping as to apply to all such events
in Hamilton County and other places in
Ohio. Jeffries Is billed to appear at Co
lumbu tomorrow night, and Ruhlln at
Marietta. It "was announced today that
Governor Nash not only intends to stop
boxing contests in Ohio, but also Intends
to investigate these sparring exhibitions.
They will both keep their engagements,
and no trouble is feared, for they simply
give an exhibition of sparring.
Instead of an influx of visitors to wit
ness a championship contest today, there
has been a general "breakaway." About
550,000 taken in for tickets will be re
funded on the presentation of tickets.
After a Joint meeting of the Saenger
fest Athletic Association directors and
the fighters, the 510.000 forfeit this after
noon was turned over to Brady and Mad
den. They had each deposited 52500 of this
amount, and received the same back in
qual amounts. Of the 55003 forfeit de
posited for the Saengerfest Athletic As
sociation, Brady received 53750, and Mad
den only 51250. This was due to the fact
that Brady had borne all expenses, ex
cept those at the training quarters of
Ruhlin. Brady was the manager for the
Saengerfest Athletic Association, as well
as for Jeffries.
Manager Brady later, on behalf of him
self and the pugilists, expressed their en
tire approval of the course of the direc
tors of the Saengerfest Association and
their regret that the undertaking had
met with failure. Mr. Brady offered fur
ther to conduct an entertainment at any
time during the coming week for the ben
efit of the Saengerfest Athletic Associa
tion, and on behalf of himself and Jeff
ries. The association formally accepted
the nropositlon, and announced there
"woula be an auction of seats for the per
formance early next week.
George Moser, Eastern representative of
the San Francisco Athletic Club, today
telegraphed Brady an offer for the Jeff-rles-Ruhlln
fight, saying that the men
could fight under the same conditions
that were to govern the contest in Cin
cinnati. There were, in fact, other prop
ositions, but the managers of both Jeff
ries and Ruhlln denied the acceptance
of any of them up to the time of their
departure tonight. Manager Brady said
that he would not accept any proposition
for Jeffries to engage in any contests in
the future until there was a legal, as well
as a financial, guarantee.
"We will go ahead with our theatrical
venture for the present," said Brady,
"and will pay no attention to any propo
sitions for Jeffries to meet Ruhlln or any
other man. Our experience here has been
a warning to us, and I, for one, do not
care to go through the worry and loss
that this match has occasioned me. In
Tegard to the Denver offer, I will say
that the only condition under which we
will go to Denver is for Mr. Floto to offer
a purse of 523,000, the money to be de
posited in bank before the contest, and
to be forfeited in case the contest is pre
vented by legal measures."
The Saengerfest board, that lost 557,000
originally In the structure, Tecently ex
pended about 55000 more in remodeling
the hall for the proposed boxing contests,
and now. Instead of paying off deficits, is
settling on a basis of largely increased
expenses. In addition to remodeling the
hall, and thousands of dollars of other
expenses, it had the forfeit with the con
testants to adjust. Manager Brady can
celled profitable dates for many weeks
lor Jeffries and his company, so that he
could go Into training, and has been at a
great expense in maintaining his train
ing quarters. His loss is estimated at
about 518,000. Manager Madden has had a
similar experience In taking Ruhlin off
the road, and he estimates his loss at
Jeffrie and Ruhlln May Wreatle.
CHICAGO, Feb. 15. A special from Cin
cinnati says Manager Brady, on behalf of
Jeffries, today accepted the offer of a
purse of 55000 for a wrestling match to
take place in Chicago between Jeffries
and Ruhlin. Brady said the only con
ditions on which he would go to Denver
would be the offer of a purse of 525,000.
the money to be deposited in a bank be
fore the contest, and to be forfeited in
case the contest is prevented by legal
Not "Wanted In Louisville.
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 15. A report
having reached the city that the Jeffries
Ruhlln promoters were on the way to
Louisville to pull off the fight here, the
grand jury at once notified the city offi
cials that it would go into immediate ses
sion to consider the matter.
PIERCE SLUGGING MATCH.
Kid Parker Defeated By Buddy
King at Denver.
DENVER, Feb. 15. In a fierce 10-round
battle before the Colorado Athletic Asso
ciation here tonight. Buddy King, col
ored, of Denver, won the decision from
JKId Parker, in spite of the fact that
Parker was the aggressor throughout the
fight and landed oftener during the first
eight rounds. In the ninth and tenth
rounds King .jabbed his left into the
Kid's nose persistently, and had Parker's
face and breast smeared with blood. But
his Jabs were placed as he retreated" from
Parker's rushes, his long reach coming
Into good play. Both men were groggy
at times, as much from the pace they
were going as from the blows received.
It was a slugging match most of the
time, led by the Kid, who gave the
colored boy no rest. Parker lacked his
old-time speed and strength, but retained
his appetite for punishment.
Two boys from San Francisco fought
Jn the preliminary. Abe Attell had Young
Buck nearly out and was given the de
cision at the end of a five-round go. Eddie
Toy struck Danny Coogan. of Denver,
while he was on his knees, the blow put
ting him out. Because of the foul the
referee decided against him.

ST. LOUIS, Feb. 15. Hall AH, the "Ter

ling bout tonight. He agreed to throw six
local men within an hour. He disposed of
his first man in 2 minutes. His next and
last opponent was George Baptiste. a
well-known local athlete and wrestler.
Baptiste had no trouble in delaying the
rest of the hour, and made the Turk look
like a novice, being the aggressor through,

Indians to Move Back to Old Home.
TACOMA, Feb. 15. Alaska advices state
that the Taku Indians, of Juneau, are go

serted their village which they had found
ed 200 years before, and flocked to Ju
neau, where they have lived ever since.
They are now to return as the- growth of
Juneau has lessened the area of the lands
allotted to their use. Their old home Is

Cause of the Disturbances.
NEW YORK, Feb. 15. A special to the
Times from Washington says:
The disturbances which Geperal Wcy
ler is now trying to quell, are not. It Is
said, by persons familiar with the situa
tion, of either Carllst or Republican or
igin, although both parties are no doubt
active in trying to take advantage of the
trouble. It Is declared that the upris
ing is in reality an outbreak of the dis
contented. Those taking part In it com
prise all classes of malcontents, and Its
causes are like those which brought about
the French Revolution.
Poverty has been increasing, the bur
den of taxation has been growing heavier,
and the laboring classes are ripe for revo
lution. At the same time the ruling
dynasty is unpopular. All these compli
cations and a number of others have
brought about a widespread feeling of
unrest, and great events are looked for
in Spain unless the incipient revolution
is quelled. Spain has been tending to
ward a rebellion for some time.

LONDON, Feb. 15. King Edward, ac
companied by Queen Alexandra, today in
spected, at Buckingham Palace, 330 officers-
and men of Strathcona's Horse. His
Majesty presented the regiment with the

Roberts, In full uniform; General Buller,
the Duke of Connaught, Joseph Chamber
lain, the Secretary of State for the Colo
nies;. Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal,
who organized Strathcona's Horse, and
many army and court officials. The King
addressed the troops as follows:
"Colonel Steele, Officers, Non -Commissioned
Officers and Privates I welcome
you here to our shores on your return
from active service in South Africa. I
know it would have been the urgent wish
of my beloved mother, our revered Queen,
to welcome you. Alas, that was not to
be. But. be .assured, she deeply appre
clted the services, you have, rendered,
as I do. I felt sure that, "in entrusting
the King's color to you. Colonel Steele,
and those under you, you will always de
fend it and do your duty, as you have
done during the past year In South Africa
and will do on all future occasions.
I am glad Lord Strathcona is here to
day, and It is owing to him that this
magnificent force was equipped and scrit
out I can only hope your short sojourn
in England, will be agreeable, and that
you will return safely to your homes,
friends and relations. Be assured that
neither I nor the British Nation will
ever forget the valuable services you
have rendered In South Africa."

that King Edward has bestowed on the

of the Bath.

German Comment on KIiik'h Speech.
BERLIN, Feb. 15. The Lokal Anzelger
says King Edward's speech at the open
ing of Parliament yesterday Is more re
markable for what it omits than for
what It says, adding: "It passes over Eng
land's foreign policy, momentarily so in
teresting, with a meaningless allusion, and
entirely avoi-ls touching on the subject
of Emperor William's visit and the at
tendant circumstances which, at least,
open important prospects, unless changed
relations hnve intervened. What he says
about the Transvaal appears decidedly too
optimistic to any person who has fol
lowed South African events. Those who
indulged In hopes of peace will be thor
oughly disappointed with the King's
Empress Frederick's Condition.
NEW YORK. Feb. 15. A dispatch to
the Herald from Berlin says the condi
tion of Empress Frederick is causing the
most serious anxiety. All the physicians
can do is to mitigate the pain she is suf
fering and defer the Inevitable catastro
phe. The extreme danger of the Empress'
state Is proved by the fact that the Kaiser
and the members of the royal family stay
continually in the neighborhood.

CARTER AGAIN DEFEATED
FEDERAL JUDGE REFUSED TO AD

3Iust Walt Until His Case Is Decided

LEAVENWORTH, Kan., Feb. 15. Ex
Captaln Obcrlln M. Carter, United States
Army, serving a sentence In the Federal
Prison at Fort Leavenworth for defraud
ing the Government on harbor contracts,
today suffered another defeat in his at
tempt to tecure a release Judge Hook,
In the United States District Court, re
fused to release the prisoner on ball, and
ordered that he .be remanded to the peni
tentiary to await the action of the United
States Supreme Court on appeal in hl3
habeas corpus case. After a brief argu
ment by his attorney, J. H Atwood, who
contended that the court had the power
to admit the prisoner to ball, and the
reading of two affidavits of physicians re
garding Carter's health, Judge Hook
handed down his decision. He held. In sub
stance, that the Judgment of the court
martial was final, unless set asiue by
the Supreme Court of the United States.
"I cannot," said Judge Hook, "even
had the court the power, which is doubt
ful, feel a reason for liberating the pris
oner on bail. Such a case has not been
presented that would authorize anything
of th kind, and the motion is denied and

Carter flushed as these words were
spoken, but soon regained his composure,
quietly put on his overcoat and left the
courtroom with Warden McCIaughrey, to
return to the penitentiary.
When he appeared In court today to
hear the arguments in his behalf, Carter
was by far the best-dressed man In the
room, and appeared to be in good health.
There was a crowd of nearly 300 in the
courtroom and along the corridors, and
they manifested a great desire to get a
look at the prisoner. This annoyed Car
ter, and he flushed and tried to avoid
facing the spectators.
Before being taken back to the Federal
prison Captain Carter made the following
statement, through Warden McLaughrey:
"I am absolutely innocent. I was mis
takenly condemned by a tribunal which
had no power to compel the testimony of
civilian wltnessps, simply on a majority
vote, for an alleged civil offense which
the ablest engineers of America, both
civil and mlHtary. swore did not exist.
"When ex-Senator Edmunds, appointor
by Ihe prosecution to review the pro
ceedings In my case, declared that illegal
evidence was admitted on my trial, but
that, nevertheless, I was not proved
guilty of the offense of which I now
stand condemned, and It thus became
known that the verdict of the military
tribunal was a mistake, a man was em
ployed by the prosecution to conduct a
secret investigation. Thus, while I was
led to believe that my casp whs again
being passed upon judicially, I was in
fact being tried In secret on a mattpr
not before the military tribunal, not
taken In my presence, and Blrce proved
to be false. I pleaded for a trial In a
Court of Justice, but I was Informed
that Interests higher than mine might
suffer by the disclosure of the Incidents
attending my prosecution, and I was Im
prisoned, where It was known I was pow
erless to compel a trial.
"Now, for the Tlrst time, has a way
appeared In which I may secure a trial
in a court of Justice of full powers, and
thus establish my Innocence.
"I have, however, no word of criti
cism of the Army at large, which knows
nothing of the facts In this case, nor of
the President, who had no time person
ally to examine into my case, and who
had the right to assume b'is advisers In
this matter were honest: but I shall not
cease to demand an opportunity legally
to establish the truth, no matter whom
it hurts, !t only to Indicate my manhood
and the stain upon the honor of the
Army caused by the conviction of an
Mixed Motive at Seattle.
It would be difficult for the uninitiated
to determine, from the utterances of that
paper, whether the Seattle Post-Intelll-gencer
Is "afoot or horseback" on the
railroad Issue. It seems the Portland
Oregonlan, from hasty reading, derived
the Impression that It favored a railway
commission. But the Seattle paper glee
fully quotes from the Spokesman-Review
to prove The Oregonlan was mistaken
It Is a matter of small consequence, but
It is well to have correct understanding,
even of trifles. It Is an easy task to
"place" the Post-Intelligencer. Nominal
ly that paper is owned by ex-Senator John
L. Wilson. That Is, he holds a majority
of the stock; but the concern is bonded
for all it is worth, and the bonds are
owned by a distinguished railway king.
The bonded end wants no commission.

BETTER THAN YEARS
Only Paine's Celery Compound Did
Her Any Lasting Good.
It can be truthfully said of no other
remedy In the world what Is so often
said of Paine's celery compound, that
in no single Instance has it failed to
benefit, and benefit permanently and
there's tho point that no sufferer should
lose sight of.
The whole stock-in-trade of the ordi
nary, plausible-sounding, but wholly Ir
responsible remedies Is to bring about
the appearance of health, to cover up
symptoms and to stave off break-downs,
making the permanent cure all the more
Other remedies, because they can ef
fect no lasting cure, do harm.
The same words that fairly and ac
curately describe Paine's celery com
pound, a remedy that every day proves
Its worth, are boldly used to exploit con
coctions that can by no possibility do
anything but harm. More brains and
ingenuity Is expended on the label and
wrapper than on what Is put Into the bot
tles. Persons who try this remedy and
that. In the foolish hope that they may
hit on the right one by chance, and at
any rate It can do them, no harm, should
know that they are doing their system In
calculable mltchlef and putting off the
day of complete recovery by such experi
menting. Paine's celery compound must not be
judged by the standard of any of these
superficial medicines. It Is a great, re
sponsible, scientific discovery, singularly
unlike any remedial agent that ever aimed
to effect a similar purpose to make peo
ple well. It Is not an ordinary remedy.
The results from its use have been so
extraordinary and so gratifying that busy
men and women have gone out of their
way to send letters of thanks and to al
low their names to vouch for every state
ment they have made In praise of It.
The following acknowledgment from
Mrs. George F. Rouse, of Green Bay,
Wis., of the surprising benefit she has
received from the use of Paine's celery
compound is too valuable to be withheld
The stock end wants none, unlcrs the Wil
son political machine can dictate the ap
pointment of Commissioners through the
Lieutenant-Governor and the Auditor.
Thus the sheet halts between two opin
ionsis blown hither and thither by con
flicting motives. In this dilemma the

Wells. Richardson & Co.:
Gentlemen For the past 10 years I
have been troubled with neuralgia of the
stomach and dizziness In the head. I
have doctored with many doctors, but
found ,no relief until a friend of mine
recommended to me your Paine's celery
compound and I found it a great cure
for my sickness. Yours very truly.
MRS. GEO. E. ROUSE.
Public opinion In the large cities
throughout the country shows the reli
ance that hard-worked, often over
worked, men and. women have come to
place upon Palnels celery compound.
Nothing demoralizes the health sooner
or more completely than even the occa
sional loss of sleep. Paine's celery com
pound gets the brain out of this dangerous
habit of sleeplessness. It. feeds the ner
vous tissues all over the body, and doe3
not let the nutrition of these delicate
parts get low enough to permit of Insom
nia. One of tho earliest evidences of the
final success of this great nerve and brain
invlgorator in curing- neuralgia, debility,
rheumatism, headaches and Indigestion
due to insufficient nerve force, Is the joy
ous feeling of returning strength of mind
and body, cheerfulness and "well being"
that takes the place of the old, tired,
languid, morbid, melancholy condition.
If you are "played out." to use a for
cible street phrase, can't digest, can't
sleep, can't work. ind have lost cour
age. It is your nervous system that Is
"played out.' Try Paine's celery com
pound, and see how soon you give up
brooding over your health and how soon
you forget you ever had nerves that could
possibly ache. The dismal failures of
ether remedies must not prevent one from
taking the remedy that Is always suc
cessful. Paine's celery compound has
driven sickness frcm thousands of homes.
farmer's interests have no weight with
the tricky paper. The problem is one of
keeping faith with the railway owner of
the bonds not too much faith, but just
enough faith to meet the requirements
of prudence and of controlling the com
mission. If thre shall be a commission.
