Poktlaxd, March 11. -Talking with
Billy McCarthy, the Australian, in
relation to Jack JDempsey, he said:
"Jack is an exceptionally good man
and a friend of mine, but 1 wish T
had broken his jaw two wcelts
ago because it's business. "We
will go to the city to-night where we
will teach together in the California
Athletic club. I may stay there five or
six weeks, when I think 1 shall return
here and settle down, as Portlaud is a
beautiful city."
"Do you and Jack intend to make a
sparring tour?''
"Oh, I can't say, hut not at present,
"Is there any likelihood of you and
Jack fighting again?' asked The As
tokian reporter.
"It is possible, but if I meet Jack I
have to train too much to get down to
his weight"
"Will you fight La Blanche?"
"I'll fight him in May if he will
agree to match, but he ront. No,
Dempsey will never get a match
out of him cither, becauso he
knows he will be beaten," said Mc
Carthy. "That was a very pretty im
itation of La Blanche's whirling blow
you gave Jack last night' remarked
the reporter.
"That was no imitation. It was or
iginal. I'm infinitely quicker than La
Blanche. He is as slow a3 a stage
"Do you think Corbett will meet
Joe McAuliffe?"
"I can't say, but if he does, Joe will
demolish him. If he doesn't accept
the challenge though, he would bet

owners of the vessel. Dr. George 11.
Chance, president of the corporation,

Habighorst said that only a week ago
he received a report from the seh vn

Cltaiux? said he, "i3 all right, and so
far as inefficiency on the part of her
ollieers is concerned, that is all a hoax.
Captaiu T. W. Adams is one of tiie
bast known navigators on the coast,
andjias held papers many years. The
engineer is aUo a tirxt-elas- man in
every rcspeel, and has our unlnninileii
confidence. Jn facl, our vsel is
manned by a picked crew, from oilers
to commander. Manager G. V. Will
iams did visit Astoria about two weeks
ago, but he went there to look
after some real estate he owns and not
in the interest of the company. He
is now aboard of the schooner,
I believe. The revenue cutter Cor
7oin certainly would not go out to
hunt for our steamer unless wo or
dered her to, and 1 am not aware
that such a measure has been taken.
The Chance is all right and taking
lots of fish, too. The fact Is, that
story emanated from fishermen who
are jealous of our wonderful success."

Portland, March IL -Sylvester
Goddard, a young man 27 years of
age, employed as a section hand on
the Portland and Vancouver railroad,
was instantly killed at ItaseJnlc this
morning. As the train Trom the Co
lumbia river was, approaching Hose
dale station, which is between Wo d
lawn and East Portland, the engineer
saw two meu on the track ahead, but
before the train came very near to
them, they both steppe 1 from the
track, and were then entirely oat of
danger. When the train came to
where the men had b?en standing,
one or them suddenly stopped back to
the track with a crowbar in his hand,
and commeueed doing somcihiug.
The engine struck the heavy inn bar,
hurling in with terrific force against
the uufortunate man's head, throwing
him about fifteen feet from the track.
The train was iustanlly
stopped, but when the man was
picked up he was dead,
his neck having lieeu broken. A tele
gram was sent to his father, who lives
at ltogers, Benton county, Ark., ac
quainting him with the death of his
son and asking what disposition should
bo made of the remains It is evident
that Goddard thrust the crowbar in
front of the engine, but what his ob
ject was c.iau)t hi surmise 1. His
death was clearly the result of his own
carelcssnes-, and not the slightest
blame attaches to any one else. The
coroner's inquest was rendered accord
ingly, exonerating the railroad com
pain' from all blame.
