New Orleans, March 2. The
Maher-Fitzsimmons fight, which
takes place to-night before the
Olympic Club, is the all-absorbing
topic among the dense crowd of
sports pssembled in the corridor
of the St. Charles Hotel and club
house this morning. Maher, ac
companied by Billy Madden, ar
rived yesterday and is keeping his
identity a secret. His friends say
he is mingling with the crowd at
the St. Charles Hotel. His antag
onist, Bob Fitzsimmons, arrived
this morning from Bay St. Louis
with his second, backers and
friends. He was met at the depot
by hundreds of his admirers, who
followed him through the streets
of the city. He looks in fine con
dition and says he will enter the
ring weighing 170, while Maher
will "pull the beam to 180. An
even money bet was posted in the
hotel rooms this morning until
Fitzsimmons arrived, when odds
were 9 to 10 in favor of Fitpsim
mons. Maher says he will push
the fight from the word go, and
try to best his man inside of six
rounds. Charley Mitchell is in
the city, and it is rumored that
Governor Stone of Mississippi has
sent detectives here to arrest him
for his connection with the Sulli-van-Kilrain
Five hundred people holding

Memphis, Tenn., March 2. A
double murder wa.1 committed at
Fayette Corner in Hardemann
county, Tenn., yesterday, a father
and son falling victims to the bul
lets of the assassins. A Demo
cratic primary was in progress
when Tom Rogers, a young man
went up to the poll and offered to
vote. He tendered his ballot to
one of the officers of the election
but instead of depositing the vote
in the box, that person said
Rogers was a Republican and had
no right to vote. With that he
took the ticket up and tore it to
pieces and stamped on them.
Sam Hunter a bystander drew his
pistol and shot young Rogers in
the head killing him instantly and
then shot old man Rogers who
was standing near by. The father
is resting easy at last account. It
is not known whether or not the
murderer has been captured.
