Austin, Texas, Oit.l Pursuant to the
t-ill of Gov. Culticrson the legislature con
idled today 111 extraordinary tesslon to
legislate against the Corlult-ritzsiouunu
After the roll had Ikh-ii railed the pre
siding officer of the senate briefly ex
plained the Governor's purpose in cnHing
the li-gi'lilure In special Msion He
expressed the Ipcllef that the promptness
with tvliit.il the senators liad resimudcd
was an indication that they would pass
the propocd anil fight measure, lie
cloed with Uiclinpe that tliv ic-Iou might
lie harmonious and brief.
Tile presence of a quorum being estab
lished, iii Iwtli houses, the Governor's nies
sage was thereupon laid liefore the two
bodies. It was short, sharp and doiislve.
It contained no uncertain sound as to his
altitude concerning prize fighting in gen
eral, and the proposed contest lietwecu
Corbetl and Fitzsimnions in particular.
The Governor reviewed the iiasl legis
lation relating to prize fighting, whK.li
sport he characterized as brutal and ilc
nioralizing and denounced by every State
in the union, lie enumerated the States
which li.ive enacted laws making prize
fighting a felony, and urged that such
'"""Maws should be operative from their jias
sage. DIG MONEY' INVOLVED.
He referred to the opposition to the
"emergencj" bill because or the large
amountof money involved by themanagers
of the Florida, Athletic Club and said that
such opposition was charactciUtic of such
"It rests," he continued, "upon the au
dacious proportion that a free people can
forfeit or have bargained away the right
to preserve the public peace, the public
morals and the public safety."
The message concluded in these words:
"If no law now exists the State does
not give any assurance or come under any
obligation that is legal upon the subject,
but the-eprincSplcsneod not bcherc invoked
by proclamation. All persons have been
given notice- that this exhibition would
not be permitted and what ever has been
done by its projectors was with full re
sponsibility for the consequences.
"The public interests require that this
exhibition especially should lie suppressed.
Discountenanced by Mexico and territories
outlawed and driven from every State, It
is proposed to assemble a horde of ruffians
and gamblers and offer here this command
ing Insult to publicdeccncy against theprlde
of the people, and your pn.mpt and resolute
action will spare them thelguomlny.
NO BUSINESS BENEFIT.
"It will do another thing. It will recall
to the great city of the State, Inhabited by
a manly and generous and enlightened peo
ple, too wholesale and assuring truth now
obscured by anger and misconception, for
which Itwlllbcrcafterthaufcjou, that nopart
of its material prosperity, no part of Its so
cial nnd Intellectual and industrial prog
ress, no parto t its splendid destiny, is hound
up in nn endeavor to hold within its limits
one of the most disgraceful orgies ever per
mitted to discredit and dishonor Texas.
Impelled by a sense of duty to exert every
executive power to avert this calamity, you
have been called in special session, and the
responsibility for the consequences is now
divided with you. That you will meet it as
becomes the representatives of the vtliolo
people anxious and ready to protect tho
fair name of the State Is not doubted."
LEWIS PRESENTED THE BILL.
The first slep In the direction of legis
lation inimical to prize fighllng was taken
In the senate by Mr. Lewis, of San Antonio,
who introduced a bill to that effect. It Is
understood to reflect the viewsot the admin
istration, and provides that any person
who engages in a pugilistic encounter be
tween man and man, or a fight between
a man and any animal, upon tho result of
Willi h money is wagered, shall be deemed
guilty of a felony, and be punished by Im
prisonment In the penitentiary for not
less then two years nor more than five
years. . The bill further provides that
public propriety demands that this law
shall take effect and be in force from and
after its passage. A similar bill was In
troduced in the house by Mr. Ward, of
Travis. The Lewis and Ward bills were
referred to Judiciary committee No. li, which
las Jurisdiction of criminal, as distin
guished from civil, rantlcrs.

body of a man was discovered jesterday

it Is possible that the skeleton was hidden

had been chopped up and placed In an open

not a verv strong man at the Kit. He
could locaie a bail ail rij,ht when he hail

Corbett is one or ti.e iiicasnutcsl fellows
in Hie world to me-t. He teems to jil
w.ivd lie in a good humor and has never
once been known to relue an interview,
as nuiny or the big "rnppcrs" do. Most
of Hie pugilists gel Hie- enlarged head
hi the worst kind of way as soon as they

When mvii at the hotel last nigh, the

Or course the rirst question asked "Jim."
nnd the one that he Has fired at Ins head

HE IS USED TO IT.
It's a foolish question, and "Jim"' always
6mlles when it comes, but he has become
used to it by this lime, and simply replied,
"Well, 1 certainly would not take a chance
of having my head knocked off and lin
niycnod colli ir 1 didn't."
"Will I winT"licsald. ''Well, you can bet
jour Hie oil It," and lie leaned back In his.
chair and stretched out his arms with an
expression that said "Just glvcmc a chance
at Mr. Fit7."
Ills next remark dissipated any idea,
however, tint he thought he had an easy
thing of It in his cuinlng battle.
"I don't want yon to tiilnk that I do not
appreciate thcluct Hut I have a hard Job
tut out lor me. Fltzslmmons is easily
the liest man that I have ever met an J l

lor some new tricks or Hie trade that I can

"Now this knee or mine," licsaid, as he
laid Ills hand ou the member that he bunged
up when he took a cropper olf of his wheel
atAsbnrj Park, "has given mea greatdeal
of trouble. Not but what I think it will
beperlectly well when I go into the ring nt
Dallas, but when 3011 hurt your kneecap
it takes a long time to heal It up.
"I would rather break an arm nnitime
than have anything serious happen to tny
knees. Every time 3011 touch jour foot
to the ground It helps to strain it and when
3011 think the whole thing Is well the

offer if by any chance things should not
come my wav when I meet rltz."
"Do 1 think the fight will come ofr?"
he said in reply to .1 query ns to the
possibility of cior. Culberson succeeding In
preventing the battle taking place.
POSITIVE THEY'LL MEET.
"Why certainly I do. I am Just as
positive that I will meet Filzsimiuons as
I am that I am sitting here this moment.
There Is a bare chance that it may not
take place in Dallas, but In case It
should not there are plenty of other
places where it could be pulled off suc-
"We could go clown Into Mexico or fight
hi the Indian 'lerrllory. I am going to fight

1 bv 8 room and take a 1 nance at him
there. If I cannot fight before some recog
nized 1 lub for. a purse, then I will right
for the side bets alone.
Tltz has made cracks at me about my
being afraid to meet him, and I am deter
mined to fight him. Tills will positively
be my last fight. I know that this is an
old stock expression peculiar to the pugil
istic fraternity, bat in my ease it goes.
"I do not like the lusiness, and only went
into It for what there- was In It. I have
succeeded In makimr money In It, and if I
win this fUht I will have enough to last
me the rest of my life.
"I will still stay in the show business,
however, and immediately after I meet
Fitz will go out on the road with a new
play. 1 have made most of my money in Uw
show business, nnd as there Is lots more
of it waiting around to be picked up I
might Just ns well have it as anyone else."
'Well," said Corbett, as lie rose nnd
held out his hand, "I don't like to rush
you hoys off, but my wire Is waiting to
go to the theater, and 3-ou know we cannot
disappoint the ladies, ir wc want to have
peace in tho house," and with a parting
clasp of the hand he called his brother
Joe and bowed Ills visitors out.
Corbett left artcr the second act, and
arter stopping at his hotel ror n moment
drove to the depot, where he took tho
10-10 train for Atlanta.
The combination will make a -stop of
a week In Atlanta, where Uiey will show
nightly. From there they will go to Dal
las, where Corbett will train for the com
ing fight. Ho will thus have only three
weeks in which to put In some hard work.

The moment the ble-achers caught sight
of the big man there broke fortli a storm
of applause, in resronse to wl.lcb Gen
tleman Jim politely dorrcd bU cap. He
caoght a few Willi Joe and then took his
stand at fKst ba-c. The very flrt lall
that was pitched him cauchl the end of
his finger and broke lib nail, causing, for
I Tew minutes, intense pain. He resumed
bis position, however, and continued his
practice, finding time eiery minute or

kept calling to him.

and SI r. Beits took tils staud behind the

went into tbe box for the picked nine
nnd his big brother took charge of things
at the flrsl bag. Through a combination
ot hits and errors the Bureau team opened
the iuuinc with four runs to their credit.

Corbett was the first man up m the second
half ot the first inning. Nichols twirled him
a little coaxer, at which be bit aud bit in
vain. A couple more were tossed him, but
he was ou let-the game. The next ball
pitched was a beauty and he struck at it
with terrific force, but did not get any
where near it. A straight ball was next
pitched and It failed to go out the plate.
GUYED BY THE BLEACHERS.
Things then stood two strikes and three
balN and the excitement "Hut preralleilat

the next ball would decide It all and betook
good aim. 'When fie spberecame t lib timelt

"Punch," shouted a small boy near the
"You've got to do better than that if
you want to lick Fltzslmmons," cried an
other. Jim gave the umpire a quick glance and
smilingly returned to the bench.
During tbe remaining portion of the
game lie fielded very creditably and bit
and scorid in the lat timing ju before
the game was called.
Joe Corbett was bit rather bard by the
Bureau boy", and it was those hard bits
nt the right time, together with snappy
Helding that won them tbo game.
After the game was called the occu
pants ot the grand stand maile a dart for
the field in order to get a good look nt
the world's champion. Corliett was will
ing to give them all tbc benefit or a look,
but time would not permit, and be hastily
made way for the dressing room. The
anxious crowd waited for him, however,
and when he came out there was a mad
rush for the carriage which he entered.
