On the Bill Making Prize Fighting
in Texas a Felony Governor
Culbertson a Winner.
Austin, Tex., Oct. 2. Tbe bill making
prlxe righting a felony passed both houses
this aifternoon with but four discerning
votes In the house. The governor will
sign It tomorrow end the taw goes Into
Immediate effect.
Details of Che (Action of the Texas Leg
lature. Austin, Tex., Oct. 2. There will be no
prize flight at Dallas October 31, between
Corbett and Fltzslmmona. This fact was
settled today by the Texas legislature
In exactly three hours by the watch.
The two committees, one In the senate,
and the other in the house, biv.j an auJI
ence to tho Dallas at'orne;a all the mo; n
lng to ascertain their objections and en
tertain protcsta against the passage ot
the law. After hearing the gentlemen
the committees adjourned. This after
noon when the houses met ".ho committees
were ready to report and the senate bill
was promptly called. From the time tbe
bill was placed before the resolution com
mittee to the time it passed was exactly
66 minutes. The vote on the final passage
of the bill was 27 ayes and one no. The
bill was Immediately sent to the house
ant at o'clock that body began dis
cussing it, substituting the senate bill for
the house bill. After several gentlemen
bad spoken on the bill a final vote was
reached at 6 o'clock precisely, and the
bill passed the house by a vote of 111)
to 6. Thus -within three hours did the
Texas legislature forever put an end to
prize fighting In Texas. .
This time yesterday It would not have
been possible to have passed this bill with
the emergency clause. There were only
82 members present yeeterday, and ot
them 16 were opposed to the emergency
clause. The administration forces readily
saw that a minority would do them II
the matter cama to a vote, so they
promptly wired all their friends to come
here hnmedlately And set about killing
time until they could arrive. They had
only 82 last nigTU, but the absentees came
flocking In on today's trains, each addi
tional arrival adding to the administra
tor forces and when everything was ar
ranged a rush for the vote was made.
.The fight management was confused at
the way tbe colons swarmed in this morn
ing, and practically gave up the light
by S o'clock this afternoon. Governor
Culberson's friends consider It a great
victory for him.
Nets (Destroyed! and Violence Is Feared.
Eugene, Or., Oct. 2. Union fishermen
on the Sluslaw are on a strike and since
Monday the Ashing Industry on that river

tho river, 90 of which belong to the
Union. Fifteen union men patrol, the riv
er and bay, and any nets that may be
found are destroyed. There are some
fears of bloodshed.

Cablegram from Minister Terrell at Con
stantinople. Washington, Oct. 2,-Sccretary Olney
today received the following cablegram
from United States Minister Terrell at
"Monday several! hundred Armenians
morcrred on the Porte, professedly to ask
redress of grievances. The Patriarch
tried to prevent It, A conflict occurred
between the Armenians and the police.
Probably about sixty Turks and Arme
nians were killed and many wounded.
The Armenians carried pistols. Yester
day several more were killed. Last night
eighty -were killed and several hundred
Imprisoned. The Porte hod notice of
the demonstration, which they say was
organized by the leaders of the Huncharg
lat revolutionists, whom they captured.
Much terror exists. I think the Porte
wilt be able to resist the fanaticism."

Washington, Oct. t-Reports from St.
Paul, Minn., In which slate lives Donald
Grant, head of tbs American-Venezuelan
syndicate, which ryndlcate wili meet In
New York tomorrow, have awakened In
terest In Washington, owing to Its bear
ing on ths negotiations between the Unit

Ths St. Paul advices announced that
Secretary Olney has sent three letters to
Ambassador Bayard Instructing him to
notify Oreat Britain that unless ths
Venezuelan question was submitted to ar
bitration wfthin M days ths United States
would enforce ths Monroe doctrine. That
such letters have been sent cannot be
confirmed at ths stats department.
Secretary Olney will not admit that he
has sent one or three letters on the sub
ject, nor win bs glvs any Intimation ss
to ths status of ths quest loa, it is be
lieved that ths state department, with
due courtesy, bos suggested to Great

Commissioner Wade Hampton's Report
Is FHed.
Washington, Oct. I. Wade Hampton,
commissioner of railroads, has mads hla,
annual report to the secretary ot the In
terior. He says:
"In the hard times It appears that the
gross receipts of the Union Pacific sys
tem were (1,700,000 per month below the
normal. The commissioner says ths cast
iron rule as to payments cannot be ob
served, and thinks' there should be a
flexible adjustment of annual payments
to correspond! iwitb) diminished earnings.
He thinks the Thurman act will be found
to Justify the expectation of Its framers
If the following amendment are made;
1 To embrace within Its provisions all
Pacific roads which' have received from
the United States a loan of bonds in aid
of construction.
2 To provide for fifty per cent Instead
of twenty-five of the net earnings to be
S.-To extend the debt until It shall
have been discharged as provided.
4 To further provide that If any of the
companies abandon any part of the sub
sidized lines or divert their business from
subsidized to unsubsidlzed roads, the com
pany shalt In such cases be required to
transfer the Hen and condition which at
tached to the old subsidized line to the
new and unsubsidlzed line, In order that
the rights and Interests of the United
States may be protected.
The commissioner believes that such
legislation will hasten the payment of
the comvany's Indebtedness as they are
anxious to oe rreea from government!

American railroads hold all the records

Seattle, Oct. 2. In the United States
circuit court today Judge Hanford re
fused to accept tbe resignation of Oakes,
Rouse and Payne as recelvero-of the Nor
thern Pacific Railroad Company, but re
moved them because of their failure to
comply with; the order made In the case
a few weeks ago, and named Andrew F.
Burleigh, of this city, counsel for the
Oregon Improvement Company, as re
ceiver ot the Northern Pacific property
In this state.
' This afternoon (Burleigh qualified by
flMng a 1300,000 bond with Governor John
H. iMcOraw, M. (McDougall', S. L.
Crawford, Jacob Furth, A. B. Stewart,
C. J. Smith and H. C. Henry as sure

absolute, and other orders were signed,
Including orders) removing the receivers
and admitting the second and third mort
gage bond-hohlers to become parties to
the suit.
Burleigh left for Portland, Or., on the
5 o'cCbck train. He announced before

The appointment will be followed by ap

Brayton Ives said this afternoon that
he would yet force the receivers to an

In an Interview tonight says regarding
today s proceedings:
"Judge Hanford's taction marks the tor'
mlnatlon of a receivership which in many
respects Is unequal ed in the .history of
American railroads. Without Intending
tospeak disrespectfully of Judge Jenkins,
I must say that whenever we appeared
In bis court as petitioners for relief wc
seemed to find ourselves at tbe outset in
the position of wrongdoers instead .of
sufferers of wrong. It would not be
proper tor me to make any reflections on
Judge Jenkins' course within the teat
week, as I have no doubt he has acted
according to bis sense of right. I must
say, however,, that if he hod wished to
shield a party of men charged with
wrong doing he could not have taken a
more efficient course. I believe, however,
that Judge Hantordr) action today will
result In the near future In harmony of
action among the various Interests.

Will (Build Ship Yards If They Succeed
In Getting the Cont-aet. .
Seattle, Oct. 2.-Among the bids for the
construction of the six new gunboats,
opened at the navy department at Waeh
Ington yesterday, the lowest bid for two
single screw vessefls was by the Detroit
Dry Dock Company, and It was said
there would be a question as to awarding
the contract to this firm, because of the
treaty between the United States ana
Great Britain, whicn provided that ships .
of war cannot be built on the Great
Lakes, although intended for service on
the sea.

the old rookeries now covering an area
of 100x100 feet on the northwest corner
of Third and Washington streets. Report

to a late hour today the rumor lacks con
firmation. None of the tenants have so
far been notified to vacate their premises
at any given time, but most of them seen
by a Telegram reporter state that they
have either directly or Indirectly been
advised that a new building is to bs
constructed on that ground. The corner
referred to Is one of the most central
and volualMe In the city, and the erection
of a stately structure there will add ma
terially to the beauty of Third street.

Judge Eakln has won the hearty praise
of all those In attendance at his court

and the rapid way In which he disposed
of the business coming before him. John
Baslm, who killed John Flemmlng In the
latter' field, and who was Indicted for
murder in the Hrst degree, was found
guilty by a Jury of murder In ths sec
ond degree. There being only one sen
tence for that degree of murder he will
go to the penitentiary for life. Hiram A.
Perkins, who swore falsely to secure a
marriage license for a friend In order
to cover up the crime of seduction, was
found guilty and sentenced to two years
In the penitentiary at hard labor. By the

28 years old, a little over six feet tail,

Index finger. He escaped from the brick
yard, where ho has been employed as a

hundred for him to elude pursuit and re
capture, consequently his foolishness Is
painfully evident. Superintendent Gil

A valley exchange says; "Oregon Is
going through! a course of public as well
as private liquidations. We hear that the
finances of Jackson county, which owes
about (200,000, are In such shape that the
newly Issued warrant ore now selling
for 97 cents, though they have four or
five years to run. They have before been
down to 90 cents and below. Douglas
county, whlehi owes a large sum, has
so economised and managed that her
warrants now go at par, so we see by an
Item In one Of the RotWburg papers. Tilla
mook county's warrants, which have
been away below their face, are worth
nearly par. and will no doubt very soon
sell for 100 cents on the dollar. Marlon
county, although she has a- debt of half
a hundred thousand or so, finds her
warrants eagerly sought after, sometimes
at a shade above par. The papers at
The Dalles say Wasco county's paper
goes at Its fact, though the the debt Is
a considerable one. This is a healthy
Indication. We hope It presages the time
when all those counties wltt get out of
debt entirely and stay out-quit paying:
