the whole length or a protectorate, and
th;t, it is needless . to observe, would be
tunousiy resisted by U3 Americans them
selves, and would of course saddle the
United StaU-s with the responsibility of
keeping them In order. It is absurd tc
suppose tliat the United States would ac
cept "such a Inu-dcn, and it is to be hoped
that the United .Mate government does not
Intend to. send a squadron to Venezuela,
as the presence, of a hostile force keeping

certainly tend to produce strained rela

Draws tbe Line on Venezuela aad
"Keep Off the ti ran."
The British ultimatum has, not of
course, been published; that would be a
great brettch of diplomatic usage. But a
semi-official statement has been made at
London which says that "it Is couched in
forcible terms and points out that Great
Britain will not permit Venezuela to over
step the boundaries marked by the courses
oft lie livers Cuyumc end Atnacura, but
Is willing that the question of the other
disputed territory should be submitted to
arbitration." Tho dispute at this time
seems more one of editor's than of diplo
mats, and London papers pay a good deal
of attention to what is said in the Ameri
Thus the West minuter Gazette: "Wo
are glad that tbe New York Post, which
had done such excellent service in pro
moting a better understanding between
tho United states and Groat Britain, will
unhesitatingly tell its countrymen the
truth in this Venezuelan business and
lso enlighten the blatherskite politicians
and newspupers who arc seeking to fo
ment trouble lietwcen the two great
branches of the English speaking world."
Tho St. James Gazette says: "The very
able New York Post fairly applies the
term blatherskite' to The Tribune and
similar publications and politicians whose
mouthing on the Venezuelan affair
are an example of their habitual use of
foaming tall-talk. Tho United Mates
government, however, is no blatherskite,
and does not listen to the opinions of ad
visers of that order."
Tho view of the Pall Mall Gazette is thus
expressed: "The Marquis of Salisbury
will find It convenient to kocp a litho
graphed supply of a special form of ultl
niatuiu for South American republics.
They are perpetually making trouble, and
the mongrel Spanish punctilio will not
yield to anything short of a threatened
blockade. There is no doubt that the re
public has grnhbrl a big chunk beyond
the Schomburgh line. We have no wish
to bully Venezuela; but we say -hands
off" all the same."

Whole Thtag After Julian Rejects His
Proposition,, One of Which Is to Fight In

HotSpijixgs, Oct. 22. Unless Robert
Fitzsimmona recants and through his
manager, Martin Julian, accepts the ex
traordinary condition which confronts the
light sit uation hcre.there will be no contest
between Corbctt and Fitzsimnions, unless
it be an impromptu one, shorn of purse
offerings, ring rules, ref.ree and seconds;
for Corbctt says that unless Fitzsimnions
acts the man and accommodates himself
to circumstances he will send him to the
hospital the first time he meets him, and
tlutt he will go quite a way out of his
scheduled theatrical route to meet the at
tenuated Cornishmnn. There was a con
ference between Dan A. Stuart, Joe Vcn
dlg and the fighters the latter by proxies
Brady representing Corbctt, Fitzsimnions'
alter ego being his brother-in-law, Martin
Stuart States the Situation.
Today the ruling of Chancellor Leather
man is to be taken before tho supremo
court by the attorney general, and the
tribunal of last appeal may consume sev
eral dnys in handing down a finul hear
ing. In view of this fact, and anticipating
a favorable decision, Dan Stuart called the
parties in interest together and stated the
conditions. Stuart wanted a postpone
ment till Nov. 15. He argued that even if
the court bf final resort sustained tho de
cision of the chancellor it would take that
long to restore confidence and get the

bett, wes willing. Julian was not. De
spite the fact that Corbctt went into train
ing a week before his prospective oppo
nent, Julian contended that his man was
"too fine," and that to train for several
days after the original time would militate
against the physical condition of Fita
simmons. Kefmed to Fight in rrivate.
Tbe proposition was then made to have
the inert fight in private for the main
stake, 10,000 a side. Here Htuart inter
jected nn offer of an added tlOmu. Brady
was again willing, but Julian demurred.
He opined that the club, if it pulled the
light off on the 31st of October, would
have to make good its full promise of $41,
ouo. In all equity, in the face of the en
tanglements which have In-set the path
of Dan Stuart and Joe Vcndig, this can
not be done. Where n month ago hun
dreds of excursion arti.-s were being or
ganized for tho trip to the fight, there are
none today. Stuart asked for time. Cor
bctt granted it. Fitzsimmons lias exact
ed his full pound of llcsh.
Harkett Says Fits Has Flunked.
As matters stand at the moment, to use
tho words of Howard B. Hackctt, the
highest pugilistic authority in America,
Corbctt wants to fight, Fitzsimmons does
not. There is even nioro doubt from in
dications at this writing of an agreement
lietween the fighters than there is between
the courts. It's no go. Corbett and Fitz
simmons will not light in this city. What
Governor Clarke has been making such a
display at doing Fitzsimmons has dono
easily and without much flourish of
FIUIIT IS I1KCLAKEO OFF.
Stuart Washes Ills Hands of the Affair, aad
Itrady Waxes Wroth,
The Florida Athletic club at 1:30 p. to.
yesterday declared the contest between
James J. Corbett and Roliert Fitzsim
mons off. Martin Julian, Fitzsimmons'
manager, refused to agree to the postpone
ment of the date as desired by tho club.
He 6aid Fitzsimmons hud trained to fight
October : and was unwilling to train
two weeks longer; moreover, Fitzsim
mons had contracted to fight Corbctt to a
finish and lie was unwilling to change the
programme, to a boxing match for points.
It is given out that Julian will have Fitz
simmons in Dallas on the 31st, where his
contract stipulates the fight should occur
and claim the forfeit of 2,500.
T'iiis is the latest status of the case and
the most decisive knockout in the whole
procrcdinirs. Anv anumni. r,r diwi, .n,i
disappointment is visible on all sides over
mm nuairs nave taKen. The Hot
Springs hotel owner, the owner of street
railway stock, t!ic merchant and the boy
who sells newspapers on the street are ex
coriating Robert Fitzsimmons for his re
fusal to comply with Corbett's terms. Tho
impression prevails in some quarters that
Fitzsimmons may personally repudiate
Julian's actions and fight.
The fight could not have come off any
how. Governor Clarke Ji.nl said so, and
governors generally "get there" in these
cases, vide Governor Matthews, of Indiana.
Stuart has positively washed hU hands of
the whole affair and declare he will ac
cent no proposition of nay kind now.
Brady is tearing mad, and says Fitz is a
