vantage, and sped over the line a winner.
In the intermediate doubles five crews

been rowed when the Nashua Boat Club
fouled and was declared out. Tiie race

PRISCE HENRI IN HIS GLORY
Has Acquired Much Fame at the
Cost of a French Duel.
A Small Piece of Court Plaster
Will Probubly Suffice to Stop
Any Flow of Blood.
London, Aug. 14 The coming duel be
tween 1'ibK.p Henri of Orleans and the
Countof Turin isexcitingsarcaaticcommcnt
here, but in Paris it is looked upon as a very
grave international event The prince has
always been a seeker after notoriety, and
in the present case he is in his glory.
What more could hcdcslie than to stand be
fore the world as the acceotnrof the chal
lenge of the Italian army and to know that
his every word and action are made the
-ubject of dispatches to the newspapers
everywhere? Cynical individuals wi-o have
grown accustomed to leading the head
lines of Paris dispatches giving the details
of the always well-advertised French duels,
have no idea that this meeting on the
field of honor will entail any risk to
either of the combatants. In fact, it is
believed that the presence of physicians at
the fight will be quite a superfluous de
tail, and that a verj small bit of couit plas
ter will be sufficient to blanch the flow of
the gore that Is to wipe out the stain that
has been put on the Italian army by the
The trouble arose from the prince's
letters to a Paris newspaper, giving the
detills of his recent trip to Abyssinia.
In these letters he told of the conduct
of the Italian soldiers who had been
captured by the Negus Menelik and his
statements excited the ire of the whole
army, a fact which goes far to piove
the truthfulness of his charges. The
prince has declared that he did not tell
half of what he knew, but at any rate
he told enough to cause in the Italians
a strong dslre to prod him with a sword.
The meeting will probably take place
on Monday near Paris. The exact time
and locality have not been ascertained
for the reason that all concerned are sworn
The prince is the idol of the hour in
Paris, and to Judge from the perfervid
dispatcles from the French capital, the
people, should hu by any mischance kill
his antagonist, would not hesitate to rise
in their might, overthrow the republic,
and hail him as emperor. Very likely,
however, any insurance company would
issue a policy on the life of either of the
bloodthirsty warriors at a very slight
advance on their usual rates.
The Time and Place for the First
Paris, Aug. 1.- The seconds appointed
by Lieut. Piri, of .the Italian army, whose
challenge was ignored by Prince Henri or
Orleans, have drawn up a"process verbal''
declaring that PrinceHenri refused to fight
Lieut. Piri contrary to all laws of chivalry.
The latest advices concerning the pro
posed duel between Trlnce Henri and the
Count of Turin say that their respective
seconds hae now definitely concludedtheir
pour paries, and agreed to the conditions
as to time and place for the combat. These
conditions are that all shall be sworn to
observe secrecy in regard to the encounter,
which. It is declared, will b3 kept in spite
of the fact that 100 newspaper reporters,
representing all countries, are on the alert
to obtain an account of the duel.

boys who had seen the man comiug from

he rolled precipitately Into the alley and
ran like a deer down'jjnto the darkness,

By this time Detective" Lacey, of the

Acting Sergeant Sullivan, knowing that
he was following a mere report, hesitated
about breaking in the door. He, however,
stationed a man at the back ot the house
and another In front, with orders to remain
there until a search warrant be procured,
or until the woman would consent to have
the doer opened.
Just at this time a great shout arose
from the crowd near Washington btrect,
and everybody but the policemen on guard
at Home's alley rushed back to the place
where the search had been made. A
policeman appeared haing in custody
a colored man whose head and clothing
were covered with blood. Someone cried
out: "Foultz is caught.'"
The cry was taken up by the crowd and

his source ot information, which he baa
