I NEW YOIIK, April 4.—Sporting circles are on the qui vive over the expected advent in this city to-morrow of Jim Hall and Parson Davios and the prospect of the former coming into close quarters with Hob Fitzsiminons outside of a ring and without any Marquis of Queensbury rules to govern. Both men have been doing some decidedly harsh talking concerning one another during the past two weeks, and have been accusing each other at long range of cowardice. Fitz has put up a big forfeit to fight Hall at 158 pounds, and Bud Rcnaud of New Orleans has volunteered to find cither five or ten thousand dollars as a side bet for the Kangaroo's end. Hall declares, ho%v- ever, that this • is purely and simply a bluff, that FitzsimmonB knows that he (Hall) cannot train down below 103, and that Fitzsimmona wants to cut him down to this weight in a full knowledge that under such circumstances the odds would be against his antagonist. Hall and Davis arc booked to sail for London in two weeks, but Warren Lewis, Hall's backer, says that they will abandon the trip if necessary in order to bring Fitzsiminons to tune. Even among FitzsimmonB' friends a strong impression is gaining ground that he is afraid to face his opponent, and he has been advised by intimate friends that unless he shows up like a man he will soon fall into such disfavor in this country as to make it advisable for himi to return to Australia. Hall Is said to have expressed his intention of hunting FitzsimmonB out of his hole when he reaches here to-morrow, and if the two men should meet haphazard there 1B no telling what might happen.

Ex-soldiers arc here in force and are determined to maintain their rights under the law.

Is Pa was Councilman, but lie Could Not Run the School. CAUDBN, N. J., April '4. —Refractory pupils of the public schools must not be disciplined by having red papper put on their tongues. This is the dictum that will be laid down by the board of education this afternoon. The matter will come up in the shape of a report from Chairman Albert Barber of the district advisory committee, who recently investigated a complaint against Miss Marion Patton, a pretty young blonde teacher in the D. A. Stevens school, and who punished the 12 year-old son of Councilman George Hammond by compelling him to put out his tongue, and then placing there on a goodly portion of the pungent The boy, so it Is alleged, was addicted to talkativeness, and it is further claimed that he was extremely impudent and saucy, and that his example had brought class of forty boys to the verge of i subordination. The pretty blonde teacher haB admitted putting the pepper in his mouth, but says that the punishment hurt her more than it did the boy, but that she was determined to conquer him without worrying his father and that the result was effectual. At the same time, however, she says'that she won't doit again. The report of the advisory committee does not recommend that the teacher be disciplined, and the matter will be disposed of by the adoption of a resolution specifically addressed to the pretty blonde, but intended for all the teachers, setting forth that pepper- mouth modes of punishment are barred in the district as not being in accord- with Marquis of Queensberry Woman Suffrage In Illinois.
