voruhle Decision Expected
iv the Tent Case.
By the Associated Pre...
JacKsoMCTLL*, Fla., Dec. 24 —It ia
stated here officially that Governor
Mitchell will not allow tiie prise tight to
come off anywhere in the elate of
Florida. The governor's worda are said
to he as follows :
"This prise fight between C"rbett and
Mitchell ['bull not come off in Jackson
ville or anywhere else in Florida. I
have the power to etop it, and I shall
stop it if I have to exercise my authority
when the proper time comes. I have
given tbe sheriff ol Duval county in
structions to prevent it, and he shall
now have all the backing the Btate
authorities can afford him in his efforts
to maintain the public peace, and tbe
| state troops will be at bis call if neces
sary. Ido not think the promoters will
be silly onough to resist the stute
authorities, aud tbey will certainly have
to overcome the state authorities before
tbat fight can come off, of that 1 am
aure."
WILL ABIDU BY TUB LAW.
J. E. T. Bowden, general manager of
the Duval athletic club, aaid, when told
of the governor's intention: "I don't
propose to be a party to any unlawful
proceedings whatever. Our attornevß
tell ue tha conrta muat of necessity sus
tain us. So with a circuit court decision
in our favor and a city ordinance permit
ting the contest, thegovernor and sheriff
can do nothing. This conto3t will come
off in Jacksonville on January 25tn, un
cure aa tbe sun will riße tomorrow morn
ing.
"A teßt case will be brought in the
circuit court here Tuesday or Wednes
day, tinder the Floiida statute, and T
am perfectly confident Judge Call will
decide that there is no law to prevent
this boxing match, and none under
which the Duval club or its principals
can be interfered with. But if the judge
decidea the club or the pugiliete are
breaking the law or doing anything
illegal, then we will call the whole
thing off."

DEPEW AND THE POPE.
THE DOCTOR'S RECEPTION AT THE
VATICAN.
One of the Proudest Moments of the
Great Postprandial Orator's Life,
lie Wua Greatly Impressed
by Leo's Words.
New York, Dec. 24. —Cbauncey M.
Dapew, on his arrival from Europe to
day, talked entertainingly to an Associ
ated Press reporter of hia trip to Rome.
"I did Rome iv four days," aaid Doctor
Depew. "I wanted to see the pope, but
was told he gave no private audiences.
Nevertheless, I received a message that
he would ccc me the next day at noon.
As I entered, the pontiff aroae, came
half-way serosa tbe room, shook me cor
dially by tbe hand, requeeted me to be
eeated, and then resumed the papal
chair."
Dr. Depew aaid he found the pope
vigoroua and atrong in health, with the
vicacity of a man of 50 instead oi 85.
This was especially noticed whqn hie
holinesß was diecuesing the questions of
rights of property and of labor.
"When I rose to go," aaid Depew,
"he took my hand and aaid he had tbe
profonndest reaped and admiration
and love for tbe United Statee, and
wished I would tell tbe American
people he was much impressed with the
world's fair and had done all he could
to help it; that be wab much pleaßed
and gratified to learn 1 waa always kind
and considerate for the employees of
my company; tbat I bad never made
any distinction between those of the
Catholic faith and others. He also ex
pressed gratification when 1 told him of
Archbishop Corrigan.
"Thus ended for me one of the most
pleasant meetings with one of the most
eminent men of the age. The pope sent
a meaeage to mo, but I received it when
1 could not return to the Vatican. The
Vatican looks tv Americans with more
intereßt, in view of tbe rapidly increas
ing spread of socialism and the theories
as to her great field of the future."
A WIFE'S INFIDELITY
The Cause of au Assassination at
Sulltvnn, lad.
Sullivan, Ind., Dec. 24.—William C.
Holtz, a prominent attorney and former
public prosecutor, was assassinated by a
masked man this morning. Tbe assas
sin encountered Hultz on tbe etreet and
lired point blank with a shotgun,
wounding him in the right shoulder.
Hultz mit across the street for refuge iv
| a livery stable, and just in the doorway
; received the contents of the second
barrel of the shotgun in tho back, dying
in two or turce minutes. He lived loug
enough, however, to call out to tlie men
iv the stable that be had been shot by
Sam Willis.
The assassination was not .. matter of
much surprise, owing to the fact of in
timacy between Hultz nnd ttie wife of
Willis. Three or four months ago Willis
lay in wait and found the couple in au
incriminating poeition at his house. He
Bhotand wounded Uultz.hutthelattereß
caped and left town. A few days ago he
returned.
About an hour after the shooting Wil
lis waß met coming into tbe town by a
I constable aud arrested. He claims he is
iunocent of tlie shooting. Willis iB ex
eberill of the county a.nd lives on a farm
a mile from town. He waa divorced
from hia wife aoon after firßt shooting
Uultz, and then brought a damage suit
against him. The Buit haa not yet come
to trial. Willis bad refused an offer of
$1000 as a compromise, and had made
threats to tinißh Hultz. When arrested
thin morning Williß took tbe matter
eool\, saving it waa all news to him.
Kvidence collected during the day pointß
otrongly toward him as tho assassin.

Captain Picking's refusal to give

the eituation to the secretary of

to be abaolutely misleading, and they
declare a firm stand taken just now by

rado Midland would demand a separate
receiver, Collbran replica: "Not at all;
the caaea are entirely different. The
entire stock of the Midland was bought
by the Santa F'e and the English stock
holders can do nothing. The only re
dreaß they have iB to demand new re
ceivers in caee they are dissatisfied with
thoee appointed by the court."
Collbran Baid tbe Midland terminal,

The "hold-up" near Burbank of the
San Franc.bco train leaving this city at
10:40 o'clock Saturday night wae one of
the boldeat ever attempted. The facta
were exclusively detailed in yesterday's
Herald. Later developments show
that the robbery waa very systematic
ally planned.
LIITLE BOOTY SECURED.
It ia nßEuitt'd by tbe railway officials
tbat no more than $10 was taken by the
robbers. Express Messenger Potts
stated that no more than that amount
was secured, but more may have been
stolen. He says the damage done to
the car by the dynamite explosion
is slight.
The hold-up happened st Roscoe, the
little station just beyond Burbauk and
12 miloa from tbe city. The robbery
took place at 11:16 o'clock.
TUB MYSTERIOUS MAN.
The train pulled out from the Arcade
depot promptly on time. There was
a small number of passengers in the
day coaches while the sleepers were
pretty well occupied.
Just before the train started a rather
tall man rushed np to tbe ticket window
and purchased a ticket for Burbank. No
attention waß paid to the incident at the
time.
The man wore a da rk overcoat and a
dark, low-crowned hat. He had a Ro
man nose and very prominent features.
Nothing unusual occurred until the
train reached Burbank, At this station
the fellow jumped off the train from a
rear coach. He walked to the front end
ot the baggage car and got aboard.
ACTED SUSPICIOUSLY.
Deputy Sheriff Fawkes of Burbank hap
pened to be at tbe station. Seeing the
man board the "blind" baggage car, tha
officer pulled him off, thinking he was a
tramp. The fellow made a satisfactory
explanation and led the officer to believe
he waa a brakeman. Mr. Fawkes thought
tbe man acted rather suspiciously, but
