harked his oppoueut to win were sure
that ho was slow and that he wculd in

down to unconscious defeat in a fair

taught him a noarly perfect defense,
improved his foot movements and in

Jeffries was surrounded by a host of
friends who congratulated him on his

"I'lt.Mmtnons fought agood and game

whom I have been up against. He can
whip Sharkey in two louud-i. I would
train nothiug by meeting Sharkey again
but am williug to moot any man iu the
world in whom tho public has confi
dence, aud there noed bo no fear of my
putting tho ring for tho stage. I will
ilefcud my titlo as champion at a'.l
times and agninst all comers. At ua

feel any misgiviugs to my ability to

It is said that Germany is markedly
hostile to the arbitration principle and
is making an active canvass to secure
tho support of some of the second rate
powers in her opposition. If this move

degree, it is feared that arbitration is

concerned, for to carry any weight and
have practical results, the delegates !
must be nearly unanimous.

city of Morong, on the only land route
around the bay, ia garrisoned. All

refused as the city population is in

the insurgents are little more than
marauding bands, which will continu
