Washington CITT, March 24. Senator

of the president.to sign a little bill t jat the
senator had passed in the closing hours
of the late congress. The bill, had it be

AN Of r-.;Oi.O.0 AFFECTION.
A Lonj I.land Town Haa a Relational
Love Affair ou Hand.
Centkal Pake, L. I., March 24
Everybody here is interested in the case
of a colored man named Squires and a
young white woman named Ida May
Flock. The story had its commencement
several months ago, but every one had
forgotten the affair until it was suddenly
called to their minds by the appearauceof
Squires, who insisted that his pale-faced
sweetheart was being illegally deprived of
her liberty for the purpose of preventing
their marriage. Ida May is a daughter of
the late William KHinkle. Two yearsago
she became infatuated with Squires, and
when her relatives remonstrated with her,
asserted that her dusky wooer was a gen
tleman and that she would marry him in
Rpite of the opposition ot her family. As
the young woman was considerably under
axe. her lriends ha 1 her sent to the House
of Retuge for Women at Hudson, N. Y.,
where she still remaius.
The Girl ThinUs Hotter .f It.
It is now learned that Squiras has gone
so far as to apply to Judge Edwards for a
writ of habeas corpus, alleging that the
womau is desirous of fulfilling her prom
ise to marry him, and is being kept in
close confinement without her consent
and by force. The writ was refused on a
technicality, but Squires renewed his as
sertion that he would marry the girl
notwithstanding the protests of members
of her family. Mss. Flock herself is said to be
in ignorance of the steps being taken to se
cure her release. Her relatives say that
she has changed her mind concerning
Squires, and will h ive nothing to do with
him. She is alleged to Ik- perfectly con
tented where she is, and declines to join
in any petition lor her release.

San FuANtisco. March 21 Tha fistic
event which looms up most conspicuously
in the future is the Corltt-Jackson
meeting. Much genuine interest is taken
in the fight because both men are recog
nized as scientific fighters. Xeitherrnulil
be correctly spoken of as a slugger. Each
nas a bead on Ins shoulders well stocked
with brains. Both are quick and scien
tific; and the meeting between them
OUizht to come more clrslv tn th iiluol tst

any ot tne many prize-ring fights which
or late years have caused a sensation from
time to time.
A Well-Matched Couple.
In all of Sullivan's lights his superior
science or his superior strength have beeu
very obvious. In no instance has he been
met by a man in whom the combination
of science and strength was as evenly
allotted as will be the case ia the Jackson
and Corbet t meeting. Kilraiu was much
vaunted for his science, but that delusion
has Ions ago been dispelled. Charles
Mitchell is as quick as lightenin.tr, but lias
not Sullivan's strength. In this fight
bsth men have speed, strength and
general: hip, and the fight will be in the
fullest sense, a trial of skill rather than
of muscle and endurance.
SHORT STRIKE AT CHICAGO.
Northwestern Switchmen O ult, Hut the

Chicago, March 24. The switchmen
employed on the Chicago and North west
ern railway in this city went out ou strike
at C o'clock yesterday, but returned to
work a few hours later, the company con
ceding their demands. The trouble was
caused by the discharge of Switchman
Crowe last Saturday by Yardmaster Mc
Inerney. Yesterday a committee from the
Switchmen's union waited on the officials
of the road, and claimed that Crowe bad
been discharged without cause, and de
manded that lie be taken back before 0 p.
m. and Mclnerney discharged. These de
mands not being complied with at 6 p. m.
the switchmen in the city yards struck,
but after being ont a few hours the com

Pine Blltf. Ark., March 24. Owing to

months, they are in a destitute condition.
The mill owes the men all the way from

Attorney General Uogera Preparias t
"Get liimaeir IHaliked."
Nkw Oklkans, La., March 28, -Two
indictments were returned by the grand
jury last uight, supposedly against men
who were concerned in the alleged brib
ery of the jury which failed to convict the
murderers of Chief Hennessey. Attorney
General Rogers proposes to prosecute the
mob. "I Want ta say." he said, "that I
am not in sympathy with that uprising. I
regard it as a deplorable affair, and if in
dictments are returned I mean to fight to
fe outer end. I do ntit believe in mob
violence as a means of enforcing the law.
No J ut location for Mob Law.
"It may be true that the jury in the
Hennessey case was bribed, but that does
not justify the mob in assuming the right
to execute the law. I am in possession of
enough evidence to justify me in proceed
ing at ouce if I can get the grand jury to
help me." The attorney-general's pro
posed action is regarded as a reflection of
jov. .-wciioiis7 position. The governor,
though he was in New Orleans the day of
the uprising, and has been here ever since,
has not once given voice to his opinion
about the lynching.
