Corbett's long-expected letter in regard
to his attitude in the premised fight with
Sharkey was received here yesterday.
•'lt's all off," dejectedly stated Dan
Lynch when he glanced over the two
pages of typewritten matter. "The cow
ard has flunked, as I thought he would. '"
He then handed the letter over to Shar
key, and between the two, with the assist
ance ot Jim Groom, they managed to read
the champion's decision.
Following is a copy of Pompadour Jim's
strange deductions :
New York, October 6. 1896. "
Mr. Dan Lynch, care Groom's Hat Store, Bald
win Hotel. San Francisco, Cal. — Dear Sir: I
■wired you to Denver calling my match with
Shnrkey off, and 1 received a very impertinent
telegram from you in reply. 1 have bi-en train
ing down ai Astmry Park for five weeks, and
Mr. Fitzsimmons aud Mr. Sharkey are both on
the road niukiug money. Neither one of them
would make a cent it it were not for the fact
that they «re traveling on my name. How
ever, I \vas perfectly willing to do this at the
time as the clubs in Frisco offered purses that
■were satisfactory to me. They agreed lo put
up the money at a certain time, and Mr. Law
reuce of the "Examiner knows that 1 was ready
to start as soon as they pu: the money up.
However, they did not stick to their" agree
ment, and I gave them until a certain time to
put up their guarantee. They failed to do
this, and 1 called the match off. and went right
ahead and made other arrangements.
Now, Mr. Lynch, it is just like this. There
seems to be no interest in Sharkey outside of
California, which is a small part of this coun
try. Everyone wants me to right Fitzsimmons
and as thai is where the interest is centered,
and not seeing any chance if 1 beat Sharkey to
make more than $"4000 or $5000, 1 cannot see
(as a business man.) why 1 >hould come out
there and box him for such a paltry sum. In
the first place, ray contract wiih Sharkey is a
finish fight for $10,000 a side and there was
a purse offered ot $20,000. As soon as 1 made
a match with Fitzsimmuns it has dropped to
It will cost me $3000 to bring my trainers
out there and train, so there is no use wasting
any ta.k or time. 1 will not fight Sharkey at
present. Fitzsimmons is the man lam ambi
tious to meet, and I will attend to Sharkey
afterward providing the inducements suit
Hoping you will look at this in a business
like way, I remain yours truly,
James J. Corbett.
Corbett's attitude in this Sharkey affair
has excited much comment among the
patrons of pugilism. It is believed now
that Jim is positively afraid of meeting
defeat if he goes against the sailor.
Jim sees no wav of getting more than
fSOOO out of the affair if he wins, and he
claims it will cost him that amount to
come here with his retinue and train. Is
it then that he and Sharkey humbugged
the public here when they ciaimed to
have deposited $5000 each as a forfeit in
t c hanus of Danny filler at the time of
The National Athletic Club has put up
$6000 cash as a first deposit on a $10,000
purse, and with the $10,000 Corbett,
Lynch, Shansey and Miller ciaimed was
put up by the fighters themselves, Cor
bett, if a winner, certainly could draw
down a snug pot of money, far surpassing
even such extravagant expenditures for
an overland trip as $5000.
Sbarkey was very much put out after
hearing Corbett's letter read to him.
"He's a dirty cur; he don't want to meet
me. I have had Groom telegrap-h to Fitz
simmons that I will fight him for $10,000 a

no color, size or weight. If i can force
CorDett to meet me I'll bet $5000 on the
side he'll not be on his feet in ten rounds. 1 '
A casual remark made by a bystander to
the effect that Sharkey would have to
swim Cavill, the Australian, a match
across the Golden Gate, brought forth the

Hack-Driver Kinney Found
Dead and Floating in
WATCH FULL OF WATER
He Was Last Seen at Midnight
Going Toward His Lodging-
His Purse Is Missing and There Is a
Strange Blonde Woman
' in the Case-
The body of A. J. Kinney, a well-known
hack-driver, familiarly called "Johnnie,"
was found in the slip of Mission-street
dock 2 yesterday morning at 7:50 o'clock.
Several mysterious circumstances »nr
round his death.
Kinney had been a bacKdriver in the
City about ten year 3 and was a familiar
figure at the ferries, Third and Townsend
streets and downtown stands. He owned
his own carriage and team, dressed in
livery, was quiet, well behaved and did
not drink to excess. Knowing his steady
habits, all his friends are mystified at his
sudden death! Its suddenness is well
illustrated by the fact that one of the
men, W. H. Horn, who played shuffle-
board Saturday night with him in Cogh
lin's saloon at 1430 Market street, and is
employed by the San Francifco Under
taking Company, yesterday afternoon em
balmed the body of his friend and com
panion of the night before and prepared it
Saturday night County Clerk Curry, his
deputy, Harry Piper, Frank Corbett of
the San Francis.co Undertaking Company,
Harry Corbett and several others were in
Cogniin's saloon. They talked politics
and other things and played shuffle- board.
About 11 o'clock Johnnie Kinney and a
friend, J. M. Ferris, a silver-plater who
lives out in the Potrero, left the saloon to
go home. Kinney drank a little periodi
cally, and was somewhat under the influ
ence of liquor when Ferris left him at
Third and Howard streets, about 11:30
o'clock. Ferris says the last he saw of
Kinney was when the latter walked across
the street toward the Koster lodging
house at 205 Third street, where he
Ferris then caught a car and went home.
Nobody has yet been found who saw Kin
ney after this till his dead body was
found in the water. Shortly before 8
o'clock J. C. ParKer of the little steamer
Belvedere noticed the body floating in the
slip, and Edward Casey, a runner for the
New Western Hotel, assisted him in tying
it to the piling, when the Coroner's office
There are several scratches on the face
and the end of the nose is skinned, but it
is thought these abrasions were made by
contact with the piling.
The question which puzzles the dead
man's friends is Kinney's whereabouts
after 11:30 o'clock. Some think he was
drugged and robbed; others that he wan
dered down Mission street, Jell into the
water and being hravily intoxicated was
unablo to help himself. There io one fact
which supports the latter theor • It is that
Kinney's silver watch was full oi water
and it stopped at exactly 12:07 o'clock,
giving him time enough toiwander slowly
down Mission or Howard streets from
Third to the wharf.
On the other hand Michael W. Kinney,
the dead man's brother, snys he carried
from $15 to $30 in a purse. When the body
was recovered only 2 cents were in the
pockets ami the purse was missing.
Jack Marshall, a hack-driver, throws a
little more mystery into the case by mak
ing the statement that de saw Kinney
around the ferries at G o'clock yesterday
morning. But if that is so how did the
watch get filled with water at 12:07 in the
morning, his friends would like to
There also appears to be a woman in the
case. She is iot known to have been with
Kinney Saturday night. She is blonde
and fair. Friday morning she went to
the ferries to meet some friends. They
failed to appear, and Kinney took her
home in his carriage and made her ac
He told several of his friends among the
haefc-drivers that he had an engagement
with the woman Saturday night and that
she seemed to be a lady. It is not known
whether he kept this tngagement or not.
Kinney was always well dressed and was
rather a good-looking fellow. He was
about 42 years of age and was born in Wis
consin. He roomed with his brother. The
circumstances so far as known were re
ported to Captain Lees and he put Detec
tives Cody and CrocKett on the case.
R. E. Cole, liveryman on Third street,
where Kinney kept his horses and car
riage, said Kinney came in about 6 o'clock
Saturday night, about two hours earlier
It was also learned by a Call reDorter
that Kinney had a drink about 7 o'clock
with a stran.er at Ackerson's saloon at
Third and Howard. The bartender was
not able to give a description of this man.
Tlie autopsy on the body, performed by
Dr. Charles L. Morgan, demonstrated the
fact that the lungs were tull of water and
that the immediate cause of death was
submersion. No liquor was found in the

Undertaking Company on Mission street.

DIVINE REMEDY FOR SIN.
Text of the Sermon by the Key. Dr.
The Rev. Dr. Spaulding's sermon in St.
John's Episcopal Church yesterday was
upon "Sin, Its Consequences and the Di
vine Remedy." The healing of the man
with palsy suggested' the subject. The
rector called attention to the fact that the
Lord's answer to the palsied man, "Thy
sins be forgiven thee," would be meaning
less unless sin was the cause of the disease,
and then dwelt upon the physical and
moral results of sin. He said that there is
the slow suicide of bad habits and of evil
passions as well as the sudden ending of
life by pistol or poison. The moral re
sults, he said, are still more dreadful in a
lowered tone ot living, in the conscious
ness of being apart from God. which
means wretched restlessness. Forgive- j
,ness of sins of which the Master left the j
privilege in his church to speak for him
is the only cure for this wretched restless
