government of quite a large sum of money.
Since then I have become a Christina man

as I have made a little money, I have sent
It to the government, so that I have returned
all that was fraudulently taken, and the en

above the amount stolen. I pity any thief
if he must pass through the anguish of nun 1
that 1 have experienced; and even now,
though I have made restitution, yet my
conscience is under condemnation and I
suffer deeply. Do you not think that 25 per

bring peace to a sorrowing soul? Please see
that this money goos to the proper place.
There is no need of my name. "

now the Mississippi trouble has bee l settled
he wanted to attend to Jackson's cl Urns to
the championship. He is anxious to have
one more battle before ha retires from the
ring, and Jackson is the only man to be
thought of just now. Sully said that if the
California Athletic club, or any other club,
will put up a $30,000 purs? for a flht be
tween Jackson and himself h- will rieet him
in a battle for the championship, lie don't
care what the gloves ara go long as they

Sullivan continued: "I will not under any

Chicago, March 25. The colored pugilist,
Peter Jackson, sparred a three-round "go"

before over 5,010 people. There -ere sev

put in as sort of proloie and epih gue, two
or three of which were so hot that the au
dience fairly howled its joy. The par be
tween Jackson and A-hton was a c lever set
to, in which the Australian champion made
an xi-ee.lingy pood impression. His
superior reach told against Ash'.on,
but he was clever on his f.et and
quick as a flish in avoiding his op
ponent's b ows. 'o hard raps were giveu,

rei-ted somewhere between thesohs and skull

liht y, but in which thesciencj ot an artist
was brought into play, proved him to be a
dangerous customer if heated in a I ttle for
blood. Ashton showed much cleverness and
gave a good exhibition of scientific move
ments, but his cleverest motions failed to
catch Jackson off Lis guard.

Commissioner King by the Whiskers
and Proceeds to "Take It Oat of His
Hide" A Wrestle, with First Fall for
the Commissioner Two Stories of
Alleged Wrong and Injury.
Chicago, March 38. The spectacle of a
pretty and handsomely dressed young
woman darting out of the entrance of tbe
First National bank and seizing a dignified
gentleman by the whiskers while she casti
gated him with a heavy rawhide, was the
unusual and exciting event which com
manded the attention of passers-by on Dear
born street about 12:20 o'clock yesterday.
The parties were Mrs. Frank Kent, an artist,
who lives at Armitage and Columbia ave
nues, Hermo-a, and United States Commis
sioner Simeon W. King.
She Was Little but Wiry.
Mr. King caught the woman's arms and
tried to hold her, but if she Is little, Mrs.
Kent is wiry, and in the struggle which en
sued she twisted and iquirmed like an eel
until her foot lipd on the Ktoue steps of
the lwiik burbling, and an instant later the
struggle was being carried on on the Dear
born street pavement. As they fell Mrs.
Kent was undermost, and Mr. King was
able to prevent her doing hiin further dam
age until Otti.-er Rrett came to his assist
ance and took the furious little beauty to
the Central station.
Mr. Kind's forehead was cut.by the power
ful strokes of the rawhid. and his head was
very much waled up from the same cause.
The Lawyer Tells His Sim jr.
"Mrs. Kent was introdui-ed to mo ty J.
W. Smith, a west side restauratuer, some
time lsst fall," said Mr. King to a reporter,
"and 1 acted as ber attorney in some busi
ness connected w ith a panorama comptny in
which she was interested. Afterward she
came to me and told me she was in distress
and about to be turned out by her landlord
for not ikying her rent. I have a large and
sympathetic heart for a woman in distress,
and accordingly pu. chased an option on
some projierty in liermosa and allowed Mrs.
Kent to occupy it because of her poverty.

The Woiian Theory No Longer Believed

the Fatal Evening A Newspaper Man
Cros-ttiestiona the Suspected Brother
Suspicious Fact Noted.
Kalamazoo, Mich., March 25. The pros
pect of capturing the murderer of Albert
Fosdick seems to be growing less every day.
The theory that he was killed by a man who
wanted to avenge an injury to a woman has
been thoroughly exploded. It Stems that
Fosdick for years enjoye-i the reputation of
being a gay Lothario, but now that be is
dead there dixs not seem to be a man who
knows anything about bint except by repu
tation. Sheriff McFarland is devoting bis
w hole attention to Dr. Fosdick, tle dead
man's surviving brother, and s ill believes
that the doctor knows more e.lout the mur
der than he has told.
Interviews with tht doctor t-.nd his neigh
bors Me?m to confirm tbe shei i if impres
sions. The doctor stated on Sunday that he
had b?en Liking his meals at the Campbell
farm for a wvek, lcause he was afraid to
eat in his own home while Albert was there.
Farmer Campbell, who was lsrn and raised
in Van Huron county, stated ptisitively that
the doctor had eaten only one meal at his
house in the last year, and that was on the
night Alliert was murdered.
"Was the doctor in the habit of making
visits to your farm" Mr. Campbell was
asked by a reporter.
"Yes, hu came over mice in a w bile, gener
ally in the afteriio.-u. I was rather sur
prised w hen he came over oinvs t spend an
On the Morning of the Murder.
"What time di 1 he leave your house that
j night r
"It was exactly 10 o'clock. He was appar
ently in good spirits. I saw him again the
following morning before 6 o'clock. I was
in the sheep tarn just as the doctor came up
on a half run. He was very pile and very
much excited. I asked hini if anything had
happened. He said Alb rt had been killed
murdered. The doctor looked as if he had
not len alie l all niht, and his eyes were
so wild that I w as almost inclined to believe
he had been dreaming. Then I asked him
how he knew, and he answvret thai be had
opened the door leading into Albert's part of
the bouse, which was known as the office,
and that he saw Allrt dead, suting upright
in a chair."
In the Itlood Stained Koom.
A visit to tbe Fosdick bouse was made,
the doctor was found seated on n bench in
tbe room where his brother was murdered.
Almost under his feet were dark stains of
blood, anil ths wall before his eyes was col
ored a crimson hue. Tbe correspondent ex
p'ained his visit briefly, and th--n asked:
"Ioct or, did your brct her ever tell you o
any woman in whom was interested T
"No, be did not. Kd Overaker told
me yesterday that Albert cou'.d explain his
whereabouts the night I was shot if the
trial had ever gone to the ciivu.t court.
Albert was in Bangor the next monung.and
also in I.acota. I talked with Lim about the
case, and accusal him of having fired the
shot. I tiiiuk 1 told him that he would have
to leave the touse. I was afraid of bun then,
an I didn't want him nroun 1. 1 wanted to
buy all he had."
Some Discrepancies Noted.
"kVb,-n did you get home on Friday night
"It Was j,st In oM,h k."
"Mr. Campb 11 says it was Id oY.x-k lie-
fore you h-tt his house."
"Well, perhaps I was tnistnkeii. I lid not

see a light in his part of the hous I went

"I went there to see if A'drt was up. and

him, made a brief examination of his
wounds aud knew hu was dead."
"But Mr. Campbell says you told him that
you did n. t see the wounds," the r. fmrter
"Did lief" said the doctor. His fttCeseemed
to grow paler and his nervousness increased.
"Perhap, I was a little excited at the time,"
be said at last.
Another Fit nf Coughing.
"Did it ev.-r occur to you, doctor, that the
man who killed AHert was a supposed friend
Whom he allowed to approach his chair as if
he had nothing to fearr"
The doctor had an-'ther violent coughing
fit at this moment, but when he got through
he said he had given the subject little
thought, and then the interview closed.
One remarkable circumstau'-e that has
just cc.me to liht was the r jort of the
doctor's conduct Sunday night while his
brother's Udy lay on a temporary couch in
the lonely cottage near the swamp. A nuiu
lier of farmers' wives had elected U sit up
w ith the corps...
Invited Them to I-eave.
About St o'clock the doctor broke in on
them and announced that he was goinf- to
bed. "When you women pet ready to go,"
he raid cool.y, "you can blow out tbe light
and leave by the front door." They all went
within a few minutes. The invitation was
too direct to be misunderstood. On Satur
day morning bile the body of bis brother
was sitting upright in a chuir and tbe floor
and walls were spattered with blood the
doctor lighted a fire in the stove, before
which Al'iert had been assassinated, and
coolly cooked his breakfast. The sentiment
against the doctor is growing hourly.
