Groin Xot Swelled- Heferee Karri
San Francisco, Dee. 10. George Allen,
Tom Sharkey's assistant trainer, occupied
the witness stand most of today in behalf
of Bob Fitzsimmons. His testimony was
strongly corroborative of that given by
Billy Smith yesterday, and tended to show
the alleged "conspiracy by which the Cor
iilshnian was robbed of thedecibion of the
Allen wild that Sharkey never talked to
him about the right, and lie knew nothing
berore the contest of any deal by which
Sharker was to be giren-the decision; lie
knew of no plan to have a friendly referee
named. The night of the fight witness was
in Sharker's corner in the capacity or. bot
tle holder. He could see the n.en clearly
and closely followed their movements.
In tin eighth round Fitzsimmons landed
his lea iu Sharkey's stomach , and Tollowed
it up Immediately with a n tipper cut on the
chin. It was a second or two before
Sharker fell alter receiving the last blow.
Allen was positive he did not see any foul.
lie was holding a towel and started to
toss it in the air in token or defeat, but
ajuis prevented from doing so. He as
aisled in carrying Sharkey lrom the ring
to his dresMng-room and while doing this
first hoard the sailor had been given the
decision on a foul.
Asked as to Sharkey's condition at
that time Allen said: "He wtw groaning
and limp. He was not knocked out, but.
he w.-.s limp."
Allen said that Lynch, William Abbott,
Danny Needham, liilly Smith, and a re
orter went to the dressing-room. Smith
and the witness began to undress Sharkey,
but Lynch objected. Sharkey asked Allen
to get some water and motioned for him
to bathe his groin, which he did. He
saw no swelling or discoloration.
Lynch refused to permit a doctor to
examine Sharkey until after lie was re
moved to his hotel. When the latter
reached his room Allen helped undress
him and again bathed his groin. Even
then lie saw no swelling or discoloration.
S on after Needham came m with a

Lynch and Needham remaining while the

of the series.
The Eastern eleven has been putting in
some hard practice since the last meeting
of the two teams, and they are confident
of making a much better showing. The
line-up of the team will be exactly the
same -as in the first contest.

FARMS TO BE GIVEN AWAY.
Seaboard Air Line Will Experiment
Baltimore, Dec. 10. It is announced
that the Seaboard Air Line, looking to the
benefit of the agricultural interests of the
country tributary to it and to the enlarge
ment of its efrorts to attract immigra
tion, has decided to establish 100 small
experimental rarms along the line of its
road, givingoneexperimeiitalfann to every
ten miles of its system.
It is proposed by the management to take
100 small tracts of land Immediately along
the line, and under the direction of the
best experts vto utilize these farms for
showing what can bedone in the diversifica
tion of farm interests and for the growing
of field crops not now raised in the South.
While each experimental station will
cover but a limited area, it will be large
enough to demonstrate the best methods
of crop growing and the best crops adapted
to the various sections of the country. It
is proposed to experiment with a large
number of crops not now produced in
that territory, such as hops, broom corn,
celery, sugar beets, and other products
which may be made to profitably diversify
the agricultural interests of the region
between Norfolk and Atlanta.
In undertaking this work the management
of the Seaboard Air Line has in view, not
only the possibility of attracting many
new settlers, by demonstrating the va
riety of products that can be profitably
grown in that section, but also to benefit
the fanners now located on the line of
its road, by this experimental work, in
showing the best system or crop growing
and the greatest variety or products that
can be advantageously cultivated.

remarked that the whole matter was -a
farce, and did not seem (.o realize the

it was suggested that the affair could be

Col. famuli asked lor a continuance of
the examination, and that Cuyler be ad
mitted to bail. The 'request was granted,
but the prisoner, being unable to secure
bond, was locked up. The court officials
were not very communicative, and the
atmosphere assumed an air of tecrecy.
On account or the prominence of the
parties interested there will doubtless be
a strenuous erfort made to prevent the
matter being thoroughly investigated,

dealtr, of No. 2148 Seventh avenue, was
not in his seat. There was nothing to do,
therefore, but to await his arrival. Mr.
Slawson had forgotten that court was
called at 10 o'clock instead or 10:30. as
has been customary. Juror No. 3 arrived
a little before 10:30, having been found in
the corridor readng a newspaper.
Then Mr. House began his summing up.
Maria cried softly and nestled closer to
Mrs. Foster. Mr. House commenced by a
slight reference to the death or Col. Fel
lows and his funeral yesterday. He dwelt
on the enigma of human life, the endeavors
or the world'sgreatest scientists and philos
ophers to solve it and their utter dereat.
"They appreciate," he said, -that it
came from a higher being, one Tar beyond
them, and that when the life was taken
there wasiioTorm in them to bringitback.
'The being who gave us lire gave it also
to her," pointing to Maria, "and now, gen
tlemen of the jtiry, it rests with you
whether she shall live or die.
"You are not here to set up a law of
morality for this community for the fu
ture; neither are you here to say that
other women shall not act as it is charged
this girl has done. You are here to say
whether you think this defendant is guilty
or not guilty, judging solely by the evi
dence that has been presented to you."
Mr. House spoke with great feeling. His
eloquence commanded the closest atten
tion. "THAT BLACKGUARD, CATALDO."
' 'When the razor Hashed across the throat
of that blackguard, Cataldo, the power be
hind the hand tltt wielded it was a power
above and beyond the possessor of that
hand, a power you cannot call to account,
cannot condemn a power that controls
each of us."
Maiia winced at the mention of Cataldo's
name, and her tears fell afresh. She was
plainly fighting with her heart. Mrs. Fos
ter spoke several worthy words to her and
somewhat calmed her.
The urst expert placed on the stand for
the defense," Mr. House continued, -'answered
tiie hypothetical question by saying
he considered Maria Barberi unconscious
of the nature and quality of her act and un
able to judge betAveen right and wrong.
When Mr. Mclntyre asked the wltne- if
he knew that Alexander the Great. Julius
Caesar, Washington, Bonaparte and Martin
Luther were epileptics.
"Why. gentlemen, you will rememberthat
once, after a victory, Alexander the Great
gave a great banquet to his followers. At
that banquet was one Clitus, the lifelong
friend of Alexander, the companion of hi?
boyhood, youth and manhood.
'During the feast Alexander arose sud
denly and drove his spear through the body
of his friend. After that he had no recol
lection of what happened. Was he te
sponsible? BLOOMERS IN LONDON.
London Lady CyelistN DIseu.ss Them
in Open Session.
Full reports of the proceedings or the an
nual meeting or the Lady Cyclists' Asso
ciation iu the Agricultural Hall, London,
on November 27, show that the discussion
or knickerlockers vs. skirts Tor women has
reached in England the point at which ac
tion is taken. - The matter came up on the
introduction of this resolution.
"That, without any desite to discourage
the wearing or a rational costume, but
simply in Justice to the many members now
belonging to the association who ride In
skirts. .1 skirted section be formed, to have
mid-week runs, with a separate captain,
place and time of meeting."
The London Daily News' report con
tinues: "Miss F.arland, who seconded, said
she did so with pleasure, although an ar
dent aclvocate of rational dress. She was
in favor of a liberal rendering of the word
rational,' and thought ir the monition
were carried there would be less friction
between the two sections or riders. (Hear,
hear). It would not be long, however, be
fore all lady riders discarded the skirts
for the newer and better costume.
A Member: It appears as though the
knickerbockers will have to tolerate the
skirts, while the skirts are to boycott the
knickerbockers. (Laughter.) The Secre
tary said many members would not ride
with ladies who wore rationals. and un
der those circumstances it would be well
to pass the resolution. Personally she
ravored the rational dress and always
wore it when riding. Miss Vance said it
was a fact that all Indies, when they
began to ride, declared they would never
wear rationals, but many soon altered their
Some ladies, however, were hampered
with husbands or brothers (laughter) who
strongly objected to rational. Although
in favor of that mode of bicycle dress, she
thought it was not fair to assume tlat
skirts were not rational. One section "iad
no right to force another section into
knickerbockers because they themselves
had found them comfnrtahle. Ladies who,
wore skirts paid the same .subscription as
other ladies, and if they wished to be kept
back by a good head-wind there, was no
reason why' they should not- have their
way. There was one lady in the room
who would have her bicycle taken away

or rode with those who did. (Cries or
"Shame."! The resolution was carried
by a large majority. The CountesH or

association for the ensuing year.

date for attorney general on the Mahone
ticket, and has been consistently since
that timea Republican withoutcompromise.
He had quite a number of interesting and
pointed things to say yesterday to a
representative or The Times, and par
ticularly as to the effort now making
Tor election laws anil methods in VirgiRhi.
which will be regarded with equal faver
by Republicans. Democrats, and all ether
Capt. Lurty admitted quite frankly thac
"the Republicans are not above cheating
when they arein power," but he stands fiat -fairne-
to all and a free field.
Among other thins;-, he said that they
were now contending for such jeftiriMs as
that a man coming from the North or New
Enghind ami invesli-i; in a farm or other
property may feel sure- that when he votes
his ballot will he counted whether fce
be a. Democrat or a Republican, and that
he will be respected, whatever his polwies-

especially do not watit the colored vote

or the white vote. We are realy now
to make the same fight In Virginia s was
made by Gov. Lowndes- iu Maryland, and
all that is required for success is a hr

for the Republican party r the State."
Capt. Lurty fee-Is confident that he will

party which has always been particularly
t friendly te his ambitions. "I never failed.

lie takesissue with Mr. Bowden. who was
quoted in a morning paper as making cer
tain representations as to the Republicans
"Mr. Bowden evidently," said Capt.
Lurty, "did not visit our section. We- are
positively not in favor of negro rule in
Virginia, but we do favor u antiood sov
ereignty and standing by our oaths and by
law and order. We want no cheating nor
rascality, no perjury, and we indorse the
efrorts of such men as Aleck Guigon of
Richmond and thousands or others in the
State who abhor the present election
Leniocrats condemn negro surf rage, yet
use is to overcome the wnitc- Repuehcaii

the rights or all classes, iu laese issues,
