but Police Inter,
fere la Time-
New York. Aug. S. Two men were
severely injured and the windows of
half a dozen houses smashed last night
in Brooklyn by the premature explo
sion of a lot of fireworks. The ar
rival of a squad of police reserves was
all that prevented a riot in the wake
of the explosion.
The St Alfonso Society was holding
a feast and celebration on a small plat
form and in the street was a big heap
f fireworks. The roman candles and
wheels and bombs were Just begin
ning to boom In fine shape when sud
denly there was an explosion which
scattered the crowd and knocked the
platform ta pieces. A fragment of a
bomb struck a policeman in the side
and knocked him down. Another man
was struck in the eye by a piece of a
tomb. The injured men were removed
to hospitals. After the explosion, the
members of the society were bent on
mobbing the master of ceremonies, but
the police took him in charge and he
was locked up on a charge of crim
inal negligence.

aolding a struggling dying companion
en the roof of a freight car for many
miles over the New York Central,
Robert Buchanan, a New York boy, ap
peared in the freight yards here and
asked a brakeman to take the dying
man from the roof of the car.
The boy had worked for and lived
with an elder brother, but in conse
ouence of a disagreement with him
decided to leave .home.
.? He boarded a freight train in New
York to go to Albany, where he thought
he might get work. A little later
man climbed Into the car and asked
him for a chew to tobacco.
"I told him that I had no tobacco,'
said the young man, "and be then drew
a revolver, pointed at my head and
told me to throw up my hands. I did
so and he went through my pockets
and got 20 cents, all the money I had.
Then he passed on over the train.
"At Spuyten Duyvll the train stop
ped and a negro got into the car. We
talked together and when the train
stepped at Peekskill we walked over
the top of it toward the locomotive,
I remember going through two tun
nels. Then I was struck by the wires
that Indicate another tunnel and
dropped quickly. The negro, who was
ahead of me, was struck by the tunnel
arch and thrown back against me so
hard that he almost knocked me off.
"He was unconscious and his head
was terribly cut I laid him down on
the top of the car and held his head
on my arm. After awhile he became
conscious and tried to get on his feet
and I had to hold him down with all
my strength. It was -at least three
quarters of an hour before the train
stopped in the freight yards in this
A watchman called an ambulance
and took the negro to the hospital,
where he gave his name as John Miller.
His face and head were crushed and
one eye was gone. His injuries are se
severe that he cannot recover.
Modifies His Challenge for Champion
ship. Billiard Contest
New York, Aug. 3. Jacob Schaefer's
challenge for a billiard match has been
greatly modified since it was first
given out by him in Paris Friday, on
flie eve of his sailing for America. As
now stated. Schaefer will make a
match to take place either in Paris or
3iew York next December and will toss
for the choice of cushions. The orig
inal challenge provides that the first
game should be on a new cushion for
attaching his name to which Schaefer
is paid a salary and the winner should
select the cushion for the second. The
difference in wording the challenge Is
very material since Schaefer has been
vsiog the new cushion nearly a year,
white all other leading players who
might accept have been playing on an
other cushion. The inventor of the
new cushion says he will provide

King James never missed a race it
he could possibly help It. On one oc
casion a match between the horses of
William Salvln and Master Maddocks
was put off nearly a fortnight to suit
his majesty's convenience; and again
we are told how James stayed so long
watching the races at Newmarket that
he was "forced to put in at an inn at
Whlchford bridge by reason of his
being indisposed, and came very late
in the night to Roysteon."
The "merry monarch" was never
happier than when he was on the race
course making merry, according to
Evelyn, "with Jolly blades, dancing,
feasting and revelling." On several oc
casions he acted as his own Jockey,
and won many cups, riding at the wel
terweight of 12 stone: and once, we
learn, on the way to Newmarket "the
king and duke of York had the mis
fortune to be overset at the king's
gate in Ho' borne, and the king all
dirty but unhurt" At Newmarket, too,
the house in which he was residing was
burnt down one March day in 16SJ.
with the result that Charles had to
leave Newmarket eight days earlier
than he had intended, thus defeating

The Dragon in America.
One of the grave questions that the
next congress wIJI have to meet Is the
new treaty arrangements with the Chi
nese government, as the period of the
exclusion act terminates in December.
The powerful Chinese Six Companies
is already at work in the Interests of
Its vastly lucrative traffic in Chinese
labor, and there Is every reason to be
lieve that the same lavish expenditure
of wealth will be made during the fall
that has marked the policy of this
powerful and dangerous body in past
years. In view of this fact, Dr. Charles
Frederick Holder's brilliant, exhaustive
and fascinating historical sketch of the
Chinese Six Companies, entitled "The
Dragon in America," which occupies
the place of honor in "The Arena" for
August will command general atten
tion, and to citizens of California, Or
egon and Washington it will occasion
particular satisfaction. Hitherto there
has been much heated controversy on
the Chinese question, but seldom if
ever has the true inwardness of this
issue been so ably and so Judicially
presented as has been done by Dr.
Holder in this remarkable paper. Cer
tainly never before has the un-Ameri
can character of the traffic in Chinese
labor been so clearly pointed out.
"The Arena" has again taken the
foremost place among the reviews of
opinion which discuss live questions
ably and in conformity with the prin
ciples of democratic Institutions. At
no time in its history has it been
stronger or more representative of the
best progressive and liberal thought of
the hour than at the present time.
