A TOUGH FIGHT.
Won by Thos. Ward in Thirteen Uonnd.
Astoria and Portland sports havo been
considerably interested for some time in
a proposed prize fight between Thos
Ward and Albert Johnson of this city,
the fight being arranged about three
weeks ago, a forfeit of $75 a side having
been put up. The intention first was to
have the fight in tho vicinity of Astoria,
bat it was finally decided to go up the
riv?r and fight in "Washington territory.
Accordingly the Clara Parker, accord
ing to arrangement, started at nine
o'clock yesterday morning with 74 on
boaid including the principals, their sec
onds and backers. When sho was half
way toward Tongue point,the Tom Morris
started in her wake with 31 more aboard;
as tho price of tickets on the Clara Par
ker was $2.50 "including admission," and
the TomMorris charged but a dollar tuoso
on the former boat concluded they would
mako it interesting for the others, so
tho boat was headed for Fisherton where
the party disembarked and went into Geo.
Myers' cannery. When those on tho Toi
Morris arrived on the supposed scene of
action they were told they would havo to
put up $1.50 spieco to see the fight, which
the most of them did. The wholo party
then went down to Hodges' point whero
they wont ashoro and a twenty-four foot
ring was soon staked off.
"Spad" Murphy seemed to be acting as
master of ceremonies, Hugh McCormack
being referee and John Curran time
keeper. Chas. Bamer and "Scotty"
were Johnson's seconds, Dick McCarron
and Win. McKenney acting in the same
capacity for Ward.
There was a look of settled determina
tion on the faces of the principals when
they came into the ring stripped to the
waist which betokened intent on the
part of each so win. Johnson appeared
in red tights with n red sash wound
round his waist, Ward in white with
a green belt buckled round his middle.
Both seemed in good trim, Johnson
weighing about 14G, Ward a fow pounds
more. Ward semed to havo less super
fluous flesh on him and was the favorite
in tho pools, bats being mado on tho oat
sido to tho amount of $1,01)0. The fight
was for $150 a side, the winner to bo paid
$330, to pay all expenses of boat, grounds,
etc., and to receive all receipts.
Johnson won tho tos3 and after it wa3
announced that the fight would be under
Marquis of Qaeensbury rule3, throo min
mVs to a round and ono minute lest,
"Time" was called. In the first round
Johnson seemed to take Ward by sur
prise: some science was displayed by
both with tho advantage in fivor of
Johnson. In the second round Johnson
got inacouplo of trcmend3U3 blow on
Ward's jaw and neck and a good many
present thought that he would have an
easy victory, but Ward showed consider
able grit and though evidently suffering
greatly from tho punishment inflicted on
him by his muscular opponent ho man
aged to come to tiuSe. Tho next five Touuds
were uninteresting, both doing thoir best
to damago tho other's frontispiece and
succeeding admirably, but displaying no
more science than would be seen in any
ordinary go-as-you-please-fisticuff. About
the eighth round it was anybody's fight,
when Ward seemed to "get his second
wind," and though both were pretty well
exhausted, they fought five rounds moro,
tho advantage being plainly on Ward's
side. At tho close of tho tenth round
Johnson's seconds throw up tho sponge,
and the referee declared Ward tho win
ner. Tho fight began at seven minutes past
three and lasted fifty-three minutes.
Men who saw a good many encounters in
their time say it was the Hardest iougut
contest in their experience. Both men
presented a horrible appearance after tho
fourth round, the blood flowing from
Johnson's mouth in a stream, and Ward's
head so badly battered that both eyes
were closed. The fight was over at four
o'clock, and shortly after tho party re
turned, bringing back two about as
badly battered specimens of humauity or
inhumanity as ever landed at Astoria.
Fort Stevens has mora attractions for
those who make picnic excursions than
any other place near Astoria. The work
now being done by tho engineers for the
improvement of tho river is enough to
pay for the trip. Tho fort and the largo
cannon, tho magazine, tho grassy parado
and tho freedom from dust and sand, tho
lako between tho fort and tho lighthouse
in which good bathing can ba had, tho
pleasant walks along the beach and about
the place, aro all enjoyable. Tho fort is
but seven miles from home, and but little
timo is consumed in going and coming.

THAT "STILL HU5T."
When tho "robbery" of $733 and sun
dry articles of jowelry at Mistres3 Tillie
Ford's establishment last Thursday night
was reported to the police.there were somo
circumstances in connection with it that
led Chief Loughrey to believe that the
lady herself knew more about tho matter
than sho told. Accordingly n successful
effort was made to keep tho thing shady
for a little whilo to 600 if tho suspicion
was well founded. Ho was pretty well
satisfied that a certain "friend" of hers
named Joo Baker, who seems to bo a sort
of capper for tho game, was tho party
that had tho roost to do with it, and
when the lady told ono of the police offi
cers last Sunday that "it was all right,
she had her money and everything all
back," ho was then cortain that his first
suspicions were correct.
It appears that the two thought if she
were "robbed" that sympathy on the
Eart of fishermen and others who owed
er money would cause them to pay up
their little bills thoy owed her beforo
theyjskipped for San Francieco, and in
that they argued rightly, for sho did, it
is said, collect considerable that only for
tho "robbery" sho wouldn't havo got.
It seems that Baker on the night of
tho "robberv" took the money, watch,
rings, chaini, etc., and carried them to
the wharf by Arndt fc Ferchen's,' under
which ho dug a hole and put tho plunder
there, unearthing it and returning it to
tho madam's trunk when ho thought the
thing had tean played far enough, upon
which sho kindlv informed officer Bucker
that the money'had been "found" and
that everything was "all right." So that
for ways that are dark and tricks that
aro not wholly vain, others beside tho
heathen Chinee aro peculiar. It is not
likely that there will bo anything moro
said or done about it.
Get Through In One Heat.
My sou, if you want to acquiro tho

trout that weighs 4K pounds," you can
believe him. But if ho begins by telling
whero ho bought his rod, how much Lie

it last summer, what kind of a reel he
had on, what fly ho used, tho length and
strength of his casting lino and how long
ho played the trout before ho landed it

No Still Hunt Here.
Wong Wa and Wong Choo, two mild

arrest of Wong Lung, who is tho third

IIo is also in bad favor with certain Cau

Where the Piano Gets ia Its Work.
With the savagery of former ages has
departed also their peculiar method of af
fecting the feelings of men. Formerly
men were more body than mind, and tho
only way of reaching the latter was
through vigorous applications of one kind
or another to tho former. Henco tho rod
in tho school room, tho lash, tho rack
and tho thumbscrew in the halls of jus
tice We havo changed all that, and the
refinement of the ago enables a man to
inflict moro paiu by m:ans of a taunt
than formerly would havo been suffered
by a blow. Modern nervous systems are
also developed so that tho torture of the
mind means torturo of tho body, and
right at this point tho piano gets in its

We were off tho Florida coa3t gather
ing sponges. In thoso days and tho
practice is still pursued by tho poorer
class of spongo gatherers wo got our
sponges in anchoring our small sloop or
sbhooner over tho bed and then diving
from hor rail to tho bottom of tho sea,
carrying a weight along to sink us tho
faster. A good pair of lungs and years
of practice enabled mo to reach bottom
in tiiirty or thirty-fivo feet of water and
come up with moro or les3 of a haul.
On that warm coast tho shark and tho
octopus and other horrible things belong
ing to tho fish or reptile species, are pros
oat, and often lying in wait. Tho diver
has a horror of them at first, but tho
feeling soon wears away, and some men
become perfectly reckless. Daring the
first year year I never went down without
a sharp knife in my belt to give any
prowling shark a thrust, but later on I
would take a header off tho rail when a
shark's dorsal fin was cutting tho water
not a hundred yards away.
During tho second season wo lost two
men by sharks, but I took no precautions
and had no narrow escapes. In tho bo
ginning of tho third soason wo anchored
over a splendid bed, in a location well
sheltered from storm and swell, and we
had reason to anticipate a profitable
Thero wore four of us on that trip, and
tho first man over the rail was an old
diver named Peterson. This was about
7 o'clock in tho morning, and although
wa had been up for two hours tho bay
had been clear of sharks. Wo watched
Potorson go over but wo watched in vain
for him to como up. Twenty seconds
passed then thirty then forty, and tho
captain leaned ovor the rail and cried
"Boys, tho old man has got fast down
thoro and is a goner!"
We waited ten seconds longer end then
fell sure that wo would never 03 the old
man alivo again. Wo wero in 23 feet of
water, and tho trawl showed tho bottom
to be clear of weeds and mado up of rock
and sand. It was hard to guess what had
happened. Ho might havo bumped his
hoad against a rock, or had his foot
caught in a crevice ho might hava burst
a blood vessel or boon taken with cramps.
None of us thought of an octopus in con
nection with his sad fate. Wo had seen
a small ono three day3 before, and wo
knew that the creatures lurked in tho
still waters, but somehow wo speculated
on all other theories but this.
As you may imagine, tho loss of old
Peterson upset us, and it was a good half
hour beforo any of us had rallied our
courage. It was my next turn down, and
as I finally got ready to go the captain
handed mc a long, keen shark-knife, on
which he had just put an edge. I accept
ed it, mora in hopes it might bo useful in
enabling mo to send up tho dead body
than through any bodily fear. If Peter
son had been caught in a crevice, or was
held fast by a marine plant, the knife
would loosen him.
Well, over I went at last, and it was
only a few seconds beforo I struck bot
tom close to a lafga-roc'k. Sponges wero J
growing all around mc, and as I reached !
oat for tho nearest I felt' something whip j
across my bare shoulders. All the dres.s

I tell you I was a frightened man, and .
for several seconds forgot that I had a

for it the octopus had dragged me into
the shadow of tho rock, and thero I saw
old Peterson's body. Two of tho creat
ure's arms were around it nud 1 was to
make a second victim.
My left arm was bound to my sido, but
tho right was free. As I drew tho knife I
caught sight of tho LoJy of tho reptile.
In facr?tbe arm3 were drawing me with
