[Special Dispatch to The Call]
WASHINGTON. Oct. I.—ln the
heroic effort to "slue *em over
the ropes'' at the republican
national convention in Chi
cago last June. William Flinn, con-
tractor-boss of Pittsburg. Pa., spent
the collossal sum of $144,305.29 in the
primary campaign waged by Theodore
Roosevelt for the republican nom
ination
Making the reluctant admission that
he a?ave that immense sum of money
out of his own pocket Just for the
primaries campaign. Flinn. on the wit
ness stand, before the Clapp committee
Investigating campaign contributions,
at once obtained a place in American
history as the premier campaign con
tributor of all times.
If Flinn's contributions to the Roose
velt third party campaign equal the
amount he contributed to the fight for
the republican nomination. Colonel
Roosevelt must feel Indebted to him
politically to the extent of $250,000.
What Does Flinn Expect?
What is it. Washington Is asking to
night, that William Flinn expects to
get from Theodore Roosevelt in ex
change for the biggest campaign con
tribution in the history of American
politics?
The reluctance that Fiinn showed in
admitting the size of his total contri
bution only was equaled by his anger
when he was forced to tell how he had
entered into a contract signed, seeled
and delivered with the late Senator Quay
for their mutual political and business
advantage, whereby Flinn was to deliver
delegates to state and national conven
tions In re.urn for certain legislation
at the state capital involving Pittsburg
contracts in which the present Roose
velt leader was at that time interesrted.
It was with still greater sullenneas
that Flinn was forced to tell of his
ambition to succeed Senator Quay in
the United States senate; how a friend
of his. with his permission, tried to
induce Archbold of the Standard Oil
company to support him In his am
bition, and how he and his friends tried
to win the support of Senator Penrose.
Flinn denied that he had signed the
telegrams to Archbold. but admitted
that his friend. J. E. Splain of Pitts
burg, wrote them and signed his name.

had made a fortune out of mu
nicipal deals, and had offered
$!.000.e00 or f2.P00.000 to Senator Pen

AT DEATH'S DOOR
World Famous Ring Gladiator Is
Laid Low by Appendicitis:
Surgeons Lose Hope
[Special Dispatch lo The Call]
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. I.—-James J.
Corbett. former champion heavy weight
pugilist of the world, is dying here to
night at the Jefferson hospital follow
ing an operation performed as a last
resort to save him from peritonitis.
There is absolutely no hope, the sur
geons say, and his death is only a
question of hours.
Corbett is billed to appear here this
week, and his company came with him
Sunday. Last night he complained of
a severe pain in the right side. Toward
morning his condition grew worse, st.id
this afternoon it was found that he
had heci ssinTertßg from acute ap
pendicitis. Blood poisoning \ad set in
because the appendix had ruptured,
and It was feared he would die before
he could be hurried to the operating
table and placed under an anesthetic.
When the surgeons made the in
cision it was found that not only had
the appendix ruptured, but that part
of the wall of the intestines had been
torn so severely that there was no
chance for the surgeons to repair the
lacerated peritoneum.
They have sewed that portion of it
as best they can in the hope that the
dying hours of the gladiator will be as
comfortable as possible.

January 19, 1900.
Dear Senator:
The matters regarding which I wanted
to tall( with you this afternoon are those
of threatened and very objectionable leg
islation at Columlus. The »»-.>• is a bill
amending th* so-ru'ded "antitrust" law
in a way that mould be most objection
able lo corporate interest in the
State. i J robut>ly you are familiar with
this MBL
The second is a most malicious resolu
tion for an investigating committee to be
headed by Crirpn of Lucas, gnnrg them
power to investigate pretty much every
thing within the State, from the Supreme
Court down. The resolution does no',
limit the expense of the investigation, and
authorizes the employment of counsel.
It is said to be the intention of th: com
mittee to employ Mr. Monneii a< ■'-
counsel. We want to enlist you actively
and promptly to the defeat of these
measures. They are undoubtedly inspired
hy Monnett and his followers, and their
purpose is unquestionably of toe most
vicious character. Thai appointment of
die "marauding" committee comes up by
agreement en the 25fr\ so that it, as well
as the ether, should be attended to very
promptly. IVill you do everything pos
sible to compass their defeat? Shall be
glad it» hear from you promptly.
I inclose you clipping from the "Plem
dealer" describing the Willis resolution.
Very truly yours, J no. D. Archbold.
