Brady, representing Corbett and President Stuart and Joe "Vendig of the Florida Athletic club met in conference over the new condition of affairs. Three hours were consumed in secret session at the Oriental. It Was agreed as follows: 1. That within the next 48 hours, the Florida Athletic club shall name the time and place of the mill. 2. That within the same time, Julian shall decide (the others having agreed or not he Will accept for selection of six names Julian and Brady one, each selection on a slip of paper, and seal the slip in an envelope. These envelopes are to be deposited in a safe by President Stuart, remain secret till the day of the fight. If the names selected are not the same, one of the two is to be decided on a toss up. All efforts to get the battle ground named were refused, no one could even make a guess vipoii any hint thrown out by the conferees. Secretary Wheeler, Julian, Brady and Vendig have left to appear before the Travis county grand jury. There is little doubt that true bills will be found against Corbett, Fitzsimmons and Dan Stuart.

WA'SttiJroTOJf, Oct. 12.— Senator Sherman arrived in Washington this morning and expects to return to Ohio to- moitow. In an interview he said: "Times are better than (hey were. The business conditions have improved over what they have been but iu it there is no substantial revival and no promise of f etuitt of general prosperity tinder the present citcnmstances. In fiorne branches of business there has been material improvement, but the fe- vival is not general." "Do you expect congress to do anything this winter to improve the sittta- tion?" ' 'That depends ott the president. Tiie Republicans have complete bower in the house, but uncertain power ill the senate. I think something can be done but it will depend on the president. " Ail Increased Tariff. "You mean in the way of increasing tariff revenue?" "Yes; something cottld probably be done in that direction. Whatever is done must be on protective lines, how* ever, and if there is any tariff legisla* tion it will include a duty on wool." He would not discuss the outlook for financial legislation. To the question, "Will the Republicans reorganize the senate?" he replied: "We have a strong plurality in the senate. One vote would give us the organization. I do not think, however, that there will be any struggle over the small offices. I do not think there will be any combinations to get the organization. The most probable thing is a settlement between the Ilepubiiuuns and Democrats — a compromise." "SEE COLONEL NEW." mnm & 51HDAY QUICKLY.—^ THOROUGHLY, FOREVER CURED.

Governor of Arkansas Takes a Hand in the Prize Fight Arrangements. LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Oct. 18.—Governor Clarke, who has been examining the laws touching the gubernatorial power to prevent prize fighting, has outlined his intentions in communications addressed to the officers at Hot Springs and the principals in the proposed fight.

MANITOBA PRAIRIE FIRES. Harrison's Advice Concerning His Presidential Aspirations. LAFAYETTE, Ind., Oct. 14.—When ex- President Harrison was in this city the other day attending a meeting of the board of trustees of Purdue university, of which he is a member, he made a statement concerning his position with reference to the presidential nomination, which is probably as nearly a definite expression as can be had from him. The story has just leaked out, and is well authenticated. Asked by a friend in this city if he was a candidate, General Harrison said: "See Colonel New; he appears to know all about it." The general then disclaimed any responsibility for published articles, and declined in positive terms to make known his intentions, ending with the words: "When you see my signature to any statement, then you will know it is the —er—well, the genuine sarsaparilla."

JJew When the railroads first penetraied northern Michigan pine was looked Upon as the only timber really Worth the dignity and efforts of the genuine lumbermaiii The demand for hard^wood was comparatively limited, and the hardwood interests were left to the little operators to make oiit of it what they could.. Bill there lias been a great increase in the demand for hardwood t says the Chicago Journal, not obly in the form of lumber, but also In the manufacture of articles of commerce. Hardwood lumber is now considered game big enough for the best of the lumbering fraternity. As the pine resources of the state have become exhausted the successful operators In that line are turning their attention to hardwoods, bringing into it the fcame methods and energy which character* ized their dealings with pine, and the increased demand makes their operations financially profitable. Where a decade ago there was one hardwood mill in northern Michigan there arc now a dozen) and the number is still increasing. An important factor in the industry is the small mills scattered all through the country along the railroads, on the lakes and in the interior, near the standing timber, but far from the usual haunts of the traveling public. The big mills operate on much the same lines as the modern pine mills, and some of them can reel off anywhere from seventy-five to one hundred thousand feet of lumber a day, while the rural back country mills are often primitive affairs, with a capacity of from five to ten thousand feet a day, with water for motor power, and often With facilities attached for grinding wheat for the farmers. These small mills are individually insignificant, but in the aggregate they add millions of feet of hardwood lumber to the annual product of this section, and aid materially in the development of the country and in bringing prosperity to this section of the state. In hardwood lumbering operations are conducted on different lines than in the early days of pine lumbering. Of the pine fully as much was wasted as ever reached the market. The early lumbermen went into the forests entirely reckless of the future. They slashed and slaughtered, destroj'ing everything in their way, and left the country barren and waste and worthless. The state has thousands of acres of waste land to-day so poor and barren that weeds will scarcely grow, and it was thus left by the pino lumbermen, who abandoned it as soon as the forests were removed. The hardwood lumbermen are proceeding with more discretion and wisdom. They are sparing the young trees and saplings, that they may grow up for future cutting, and in some camps young trees arc being planted to replace those cut, down. But the hardwood lands are of a different character, than the .pine lands. Whon the forest is removed a rich soil is left behind for the farmer to cultivate. The farmer is following close in the wake of the hardwood lumbermen, and the demand for hardwood logs of all kinds aids him very materially in getting established. The timber on his land has a cash value at the nearest mill or railroad station, and the money thus earned will tide him over until he can realize on his crops. All through this section will bo found farms, many of them new and . still thickly dotted with stumps, but some that are as- rich, as well cultivated and handsome in appearance as will be found in the state. This section is especially adapted to potatoes and fruit, and has in the last four or five years become famous for its crops. Every fall commission men come hero to buy the crops and ship them out to other parts of the country. In the development of the hardwood resources of northern Michigan the Indian is a factor that must not be overlooked. The Indians do not lumber on a big scale, nor do they do it systematically. The Indian farmers often haul logs to mai-ket, but the largest consumption on their part is to inanu» facture the Indian baskets for the summer resort and export trade, These baskets are made of black ash, and, as they do not know what economy is in the use of the raw material, one tree will not go very far, The Indians are making baskets all the way from Traverse City to the Straights of Mackinaw, and each year many monarchy are sacrificed. They also make baskets of birch bark, and many trees are ftO' nually stripped of bark to supply them with material. A noticeable feature of the hardwood operations of the lumbermen and manufacturers is the strict economy observed in the use of materials in marked contrast with the methods that used to prevail in the pine mills, Nothing is allowed to gp to waste and the dump pile is unknown, The sawdust is used for fuel and the "timber that cannot be used is converted into firewood, in which form it finds a ready market' »t profitable prices, No kind of timber that grows is looked upon as worthless, and any Hind of a }og the farmer brings in has a value and will bring cash »t the mill or railroad station.

Plutome* was itt St. Paul the other day telling stories. He tells one about a judge, says the Pioneer Press, that was shaken from Hbrth ttakota to Mexico, and the peo* pie down therei whb tired ol conducting their owtt hangings, gate hini a. welcome and filled hiin up seven tiffies a week. One night, after pl&yiflg 1 poker all night on theldsing side of the table, he walked into the court vidth his hair pulling. He made tip his mind to Btii-prise the Mexico boys. There- Was a poof gfeasef to sentence for murder, and he let him have all he knew fight and left for an houis and wound up by saying: "titit hope is not for ydu. For you the zephyrs will not SUccessfuly combat, the ice king; the prairie will not endue its carpet of glory, and the little brook will never go singing and bounding on its way to the sea for the delectation of your soulj never again will the inoun* tains assume their green crowns, and blossom fof you, Jose Marie Jafafo, fof-" He looked about him and saw the crowd in court was staring athim wild- eyed; they had never heard him in that strain before. Most of them thought he had pone mad. "This won't do," he thought to himself. "These people will think 1 am crazy. I'll let 'em down easy." He fixed his oyc again on the prisoner. "These things are not for you, I say; for, Jose Marie Jararo, you will not be in it. It is the sentence of this, court that on next Friday you be hanged by the neck until you're dead—cuss your Mexican hide!" There was a sigh of relief from the crowd. The judge had saved himself by a timely return to the vernacular. And Col. Plummer's auditors were so wrapt up in the story that they didn't hear the suggestion for an extra session. he its A NEW RACE IN OLD EGYPT. Recent Discovery of Graves — Bodies. Which Were Not Muinmlfled. What is absolutely novel to Egyptologists is a recent discovery made by Mr. Quibell and Prof. Flinders Petrie of a new race inhabiting a large portion of the country, over an extent of one hundred miles, between Abydos and Ncgada, says Harper's Weekly. Over two thousand graves have been opened so far and the mortal remains, found, with the various objects, open an entirely new field of research. 'Side by side with the graves of this, new race are the well-known vestiges- of Egyptian towns, with the pottery, heads, scarabs of the fourth, twelfth, eighteenth and nineteenth dynasties, "exactly," as Prof. Flinders Petrie writes, "like those found similarly dated in northern Egypt." Here, however, is the strange anomaly. There is. i>o object found in these graves which is like anything manufactured by the Egyptians. There is not a sign of a, scarab nor has there been found on vase, amulet or bead' the trace of a hieroglyphic character. All the pottery is made by hand and "the wheel was unknown." The bodies found in the grave were not mummified and the methods of burial bear no semblance to Egyptian customs. Mutilation of the dead was carried out, for in the same grave there are skulls separated from the rest of the bodies. One marked peculiarity is that the human bones are "broken open at the ends and scooped out." This treatment, Prof. Flinders Petrie says in the Academy, "certainly points to ceremonial anthropophagy." From a study of the remains it seems to be positive that they belonged to a tall and powerful race, having a hooked nose, long, pointed beard and brown, wavy hair. There were no negro resemblances. Supposably the people •were allied to the Libyans and Amor- ites. MISTOOK THE OFFICE. Greets mwte have been the treasury ,gf the Mh§Riae8 at Pelty tfee iYenefe, £y. B^ag,g Seeking an Employment Agency, the Lady Stumbled Into a Matrimony Shop. There is a funny story current in the English papers about a certain elderly Irish peeress well known in London society. She was in search of a new manservant and heard of a registry office in a certain square on the confines of Bloomsbury. Thither she drove in much state,, and on arriving at the square in question her footman asked a policeman where was the "agency," A man in blue majestically waved the equipage to a certain house. Her ladyship was admitted, "I have come about a young man," she re- , marked to the bland proprietor. "Yes, madam; I quite understand," was the reply, "He must be sober and honest and used to good families," "Oh, yes, madam; I think we have the very thing on our books. Would you like to see Ins photograph?" "Ws photograph!' 1 cried Lady <—, "I suppose the man's straight?" "Oh, yes, madam-, a very fine man, a fortune is no object, I imagine?" This last with a movement oi the hand toward the carriage with its pawing horses, that eould be seen through the. window. ' 'A fortune v.: th my footman?'.' literally shouted the Irish lady, Then the proprietor- ex- - plained that his was a. matrimonial agency agd the registry office was on the other side of the square, &*e 9» the prjbyiofj islands, to the southeast of 44&§li#i probaWy frero law te ftve wUHon §§§W, Considering- that each, o&e o.f th.e?? will eat at least teu pj fljh per 4&y ( the fcer4 will w»s\Hiw ei* wilHwt teas el fish a As sow naturafets CI&JRJ that a ' December, ; May, tt$ B» ftitt is .a • - gecpjjd. hmjj fa APS has bee u put tesihs The itomou priesthood m Utah has » few of the May, , POfiK-Qotober, |8,i9; by feet tluvt the amount m i^#l»&4 p e f
