o'clock last evening by the Chinese
cook at the Columbia hotel.
Officers who were on the ecene shortly
after the event say the stabbing was the
result of teasing the Chinaman, and
provoking him to anger. . The stab
bing occurred on First street. Officer
Blakeney says he was told by a boy, an
eye-witness, whose name he cannot now
recall, that Daffron had been . fooling
with the Chinaman and strnck him.
The Celestial than ran into one of the
houses in the Chinese quarter, soon com
ing back with a knife which he lunged
in Daffron's back. After striking the
blow he re-entered the house, and has
not since been seen.
A reporter visited the wounded man
this morning. He was occupying room
13 at the Cosmopolitan. A phjsician
had attended to his wound, but his right
arm was stiff and he was incapable of
moving it from the wound's effects. It
is about three inches deep, but is not
dangerous, unless blood-poisoning sets
in from the knife not being clean. Daf
fron says he had not teased the China
man at all. 'that be was talking to
some comrades at the place aforemen

up from behind and plunged the knife
into his back. He believes he was mis

out of pure wantonness. He turned to
remonstrate when Daffron struck him

A round the-World.
There arrived in the city last night a
German youth who has tramped from
Munich eastward around the world as
far as The Dalles. He started oat with
the intention of tramping around the
world in 18 months, aided only by his
own resources on the way. . So far he is
a month ahead of time. -The world's

made bv an American in 24 months.
of hi? trip is through countries where he
can speak and nnderstand the language.
He started from Munich, Germany,
July 31st, 1895, passing through Austria,
Hungary, Rou mania, Servia and Turkey.
From Constantinople he took a steamer
to Caucasia, and arrived in Trabiznnde,
the very day a massacre of 8Q0 Armen
ians occured in that city, and was the
first to give news of it to the civilized
world. From there he proceeded to
Batoun, Russia, and on to the' Caspian
sea, aero b a trans-Caspia, and the Turk
menan desert, over the mountains to the
Russian frontier, then to Persia. He
arrived in Muscat, the principal city
after Teheran. He then crossed a des
ert 1,200 miles long to Belochistan,
which country he crossed to India.
Through India he went to the Himalaya
mountains. Here he found the people
intolerant of Christians (Stupp is a Cath
olic) and at one place he was stoned.
He then passed through Burmab, Anam
and Cochin. China, and took a boat for
His next point was Shanghai, where
be again embarked for Nagasaki, Japan.
This island country he traversed from
the south to the north, passing through
Tokio and Yokohama. . Here he took
passage across the Pacific, arriving in
Portland, Or., on the 6th of June last.
He was now two months ahead of time.
He wasted a month going to San Fran
cisco and return. He will now traverse
the Northern Pacific' route and will head
for New York City, where he will take
an ocean vessel for Bordeaux, and back
to Munich on foot, from whence he
Stupp started from Munich without
a cent and agreed to earn his passage as
he went. In reply to a question how he
got along in foreign and only partially
civilized lands, he said be had less
trouble than among those people whose
language he could speak. The mayor or
chief of any large town where he should
happen to be would always take him to
the rulers of the country Or those high
in authority, and these would invaria
bly offer him plenty of ruonej in return
for what information he would give
them concerning other countries of the
world and their customs. In English-
speaking countries he secured funds
mainly by writing for newspapers or
giving lectures on his travels, and he
has a mammoth fund of interesting ex
Walkiorl periencee. When be gets back to Ma
nich he will compile a book of his trav
els, containing as well the autographs of
many great men in the lands through
which he has walked.
