Ape-Like Creatures In the Mfumbiro
Xondon, May 12. E. S. Grogan, re
cently read un interesting paper before
the Rojal Geographical Society on hii
two years' Journey from the Capo to
Carlo. He went via the Cape 'to Tan
A" -gaw-a, Ujiji and Ufumblro and
jjjj? 'thence to'tluli&vja Highlands, whero
ps 'ho found tho'HCeiberx'a.uperb blend of
Scotland, Japan and tho South Sea Is-
- lands. He found scattered dead vel
canoes in porfect form and two active
ones. North or ifvu is a waterless
plain owing to the porosity of the
ground yet in enormons population)
obtain .'water by tapping the banana
palms. Tho forests are most luxurious
and are impenetrable to everything exj
cept the olophant. .
Thence he went-to tho Mfumbiro dis
trict, where he observed ape-like crea
tures leering at him from behind bun
ana plants, and after some difficulty his
Ruanda guido induced pne to come out
and bo inspected. He was tall, with
the long arms, pendent pouch and short
legs of un ape, and was pronouncedly
of tho mlcrocephalons-prognathous
stamp. Tho brute was very strong.
These people Mr. Grogan places lower
in the human scale than any other peo
ple in Africa.
Erom here Mr. Grogan went to
Katraa, Toro, Mbaga, Wandelai and
Bohr, and then, discarding everything
but necessaries, started on a 400-mile
tramp through unknown swamps. He
ff lived entirely on hippo and pelican
t meat. At Sobat he ran across an expo
w , dition and thence caino to Cairo.

WASHINGTON ELM A FRAUD.
Prof. Channing Doubts the Story
Which Gives it the Name.
CambridOk, Mass., May 12. Prdf,
Edward Channing, of Harvard, states
that the tradition that Washington
took command of the American army
under what has been known as the
Washington Elm, in this city, Is un
founded, and that it might have been
any one of the large trees in the vicin
ity. Ho says: "No evidence has yet
been found to prove that Washington
took command of the Continental army
under that particular elm. It is all tra
dition, every bit of it. The tree should
bo taken down. It is an unsightly ob
ject all falling to pieced and held to
gether by iron rods and rope. I have
no doubt that Washington took com
mand of tho army somewhere in the
vicinity of Cambridge Common, but it
is ridiculous to say ho -stood under any
particular tree. Lossing, when he
compiled his book in 1830, went about
tho country talking with old people and
some of them told hira that it was the
tree under which Washington stood.
That was all tho evidence he had. You
will find that no,other writer of history
attempts to point out the exact tree."
QUEER JUSTICE IN HAVANA COURT.
BullfighterVQueueCut Off and Fined
$10 for Intoxination.
Havana, May 12. Tho recent,deci8
ion of Major Pitcher, sitting as a
Jndgo in a police court, sentencing
Jose Macalvo, a Spanish bullfighter, to
pay a fine" of $10 and to have his hair
cut, has kicked up a fine row. Macalvo
wore a coleta, which is a queue worn by
all bullfighters, and without which
they cannot go into tho ring.
Macalvo stopped off at Havana on his
way to Mqxico, whero ho had a con
tract as a bullfighter. He got drunk
and was haulod before Major Pitcher
wno fined him 10. As Macalvo was
leavfng the court Major Pitcher no
ticed the coleta and ordered it cut off,
which' was done despite Mocalvo's pro
tests. Tho bullfighter declares that ho
cannot follow his vocation now until his
coleta grows again and has consulted a
lawyer about suing the government
for the amount of damages he has sus
tained. The newspapers, which aro unfriendly
to Major Pitcher's court, cite this act
as an unwarrantable infringement upon
personal liberty and an unblushing ubc
of the military power. The Lacha re
marks that the "pitcher has gone too
often to the well."

CORBETT MAINTAINED HIS OWN
Decided for a Consideration
Who Will Be the
New York, May 12. The smoko of
tho big battle has cleared away and
James J. Jefferies is still the heavy
weight" champion of tho world. In
twenty-threo rounds of the hardest
kind of fightlaghe finally Avon by knock
ing James J. Corbett out by a left on
the jaw. Tho talk of the town today
was the great showing of Corbett.
It was tho most complete reversal of
form over shown by any pugilist in the
history of tho ring. Round after
round ho danced round the boilermaker
and hit him when and where he
pleased. People who thought him a
back number were surprised. In
youth and strength against age and
cleverness, however, tho former had to
Refereo Charles Whlto, says: ."It
was a great fight. Corbett never
fought better. If he had put up such a
fight with Fitzsimmons at Carbon City
he would not have lost. His cleverness
astonished me. Jeft erics fought well
and was always there."
Jefferies, surprised at Corbett's re
markable showing, said: "I was never
.so surprised in my life as I was with
Corbett's boxing. I tried atr leasb-a
hundred times to obtain u blow with
a left hand poke and missed each tume,
until tho last, and that put him out."
Continuing, he said, "I do not bolieve
in waiting too long 'between fights, and
shall give any good man a chance as
boon as possible. I don't mind saying
that I got tho worst fight of 'my life last
night and that Corbett is the best man
I ever went against. "
Corbett declares that it was hard
luck that turned the tide against him.
Ho .said: "I had the fight won until in
a moment of carelessness I left my jaw
open to a left hook. I had him whipped
to a standstill, but for a piece of good
luck on Jefferies part would have won
the fight, I can whip Jefferies, and I
will do it if he will fight me again,
want another go and I believe I am en
titled to it."
Kid Mct'oy was enthusiastic over tho
showing mado by Corbett. Tho Kid
huid: "Jim Corbett lost his battle with
Jefferies last nighfc, but he mado a
magniilsent struggle, leading ulways
