Corbel t Knocked Out.
The alleged out of Corbett by "Joe"
McAuliffe some years ago Is imw the sub
ject of au interesting story. Corbett was
at the time bolng instructor of the
Oljmplc Club, at Kali Francisco, the best
amateur club west of the Mississippi.
One day McAullffo's backer met Corbett
who was then locally noted for his match
less cleverness, and asked "Jemmy" to go
out. and show "Joe'' a few scientific
points and teach him new. tricks. Cor
bett promiwd to do so, and next day he
packed his grip and hied himself to Mc
Auliffe's training quarters The men strip
ped and adjusted the gloves, and then the
bout began. Corbett was making what is
known in sporting lurlance as a
"sucker" of bis man in hitting him and
evading blm, until the big tanner's right
band caught him fairly on the jaw, and
be went out as clean as any pug you ever
saw. When Corbett came to he went
" back to "Frisco with his head buzzing
like a swarm of bees AIcAuliffe's backer,
who was not present at the set-to, meeting
CorbettT. asked: "Say, 'Jem,' did you
get out there to-day?" "Yes," replied
"Jem," "but jou can't learn that big slob
anything" Going to the training quar
ters, he told "Joe" what Corbett had
said. "Why," said MeAulirfe, "I knock
ed that mug completily out." McAuliffe
was hot, and, putting tn his coat and hat,
he at once proceeded to San Francisco and
to" the OImplc Club in quest of Corbett.
Calling him one side, the big tanner said:
"I hear jou called me a slob. Vou put on
n set of gloves there and we'll have it
right out now." llr. Harrison, the presi
dent of the club, put an end to nnv hostili

Judge Bradley appointed Messrs.
T. K. de Graffenried and II. H. Jep
Iier, counsel for Sir. Edmonston,
receivers for the firm, and ordered them
to wind up the affairs of the concern. The
restraining order recently granted against
Edmonston was continued 1 effect.
Mr. Edmonston said In blsans wer that the
firm carried on the business at Eighth and
D streets as brokers in grocers' sundries.
He was to furnish the experience and
labor, he said, and Mr, Hartley was to foot
the bills. The business was carried on at
the place mentioned, however, only from
May 1, 1805.
He denied that be ever appropriated any
of the partnership property to his own
use other than that due him by agreement.
He denied the allegation that some of
the firm goods had been removed to Laurel,
Md., without Mr. Hartley's consent. Hart

defendant in the case called for strict proof
of the allegations of fraud, and said that

the cows. Tbe boys not returning, became

During the rirst mouth's play the Western
clubs more than held their own with the
talent or the East. They did their work, or
most or it, on their home grounds, and, on

phia, now in third place, was eighth.
Tlie Western teams continued to do well at
home, but when, about the 1st or June,
they opened their rirst campaign In the
East, wliile rour of them remained In the
first division, the leaders went down the
ladder, and after a hard fight with Pitts
burg and Cleveland, Boston and Baltimore
forged ahead, and on the loth of June the
clubs stood as follows:
The Boston team was now at the top of
the heap, and her pitchers kept her there
awhile longer, but finally Baltimore made
a purt and di-placed the Beaneaters. The
Wa&blngton team, during the visit of the
Western clubs to the East, increased their
percentage materially, and on June 15
stood belter t han at any time before during
tbe race, and better than .she lias stood at
any time since. The Western men, during
their visit, all sank in percentage, but on
their return to the West began to pick up

After the middle of July Baltimore and
Boston both fell Into a losing streak, while
