Tho interest In the big contest at Corson Is more pronounced than It was In tho battle be tween Corbett and Sullivan, in that affair tho majority of sports contended (hat Corbett did not have a chance, whllo In tho mill of to-day both boxers nro considered to bo evenly matched. As already forcshadowod In The Bun, tho betting yesterday afternoon roso from 8 to 10 on Fltz to l to 10. In many Instances oven money was offered. Shrewd sporta still maintain thnt It will bo "even up nnd tnko your pick" before the men enter tho ring. Both sides yesterday complained thnt there was a dearth of rash about, but they confosacd that In tho end they were ablo to land sevoral wagers. Outside of money wagers many persons bnvo agreed to buy their friends casos of wine nnd now hats If tholr favorite Is put to sleep. Teddy Foley. Sam Fltr.oatrick, and George G. Smith expect to open a smnll-slzod hat store If Corbott wins. The Lambs Club, In West Thirty-first strcot, where most nil the prominent actors gathor, presented a lively nppenranco yesterday. Oilers to wager on Corbott were snnpped at with avidi ty and no Fitzslmmmis mnn was allowed to es enpo If ho did not demand any oxnrbltuntoiUls. Do WoU Hoppor, Hob Milliard, and Maurice liar rymoroled tho Corliett contingent. At Hilly Brady's headquarters a number of wagers wcro made on Corbett. Ed Kearney, Jr., was around town tn lug to get down about 2.000 on " l'oin-padoui- Jim "at 10 to 8, but claims ho did not succeed. Kearney nlso received a dispatch from Arthur Moore, from Carson, stntlng that Corbett Is In tho ilncst posalblo condition nnd cannot seo how he can lose. Monro also says that n number of big wagers have liecn mado at Carson on the Cnllforninn. At tho Astor Houso there was plenty of Corbott monoy in sight nt 100 to 00, but It practically wont ubegging. Only one wnger was mado at these figures. Eddie Tolcott could not find many takers for his wad on Corbett, although ho was ready to place It ut 10 to 8. Fred Ituppert, who has al ready about $2,000 down on Fitz. Invested ljH.700 more yesterday on Hob. Ho willingly took 10 to 8.

Frank McKco, partner of Charley Hoyt, tho playwright, laid 81,000 to $800 on Corbett with a Boston sport. Jack Smith also received it commission of $300 on Fitz, and did not hnvo to wait very long to place It. He gladly accepted even monoy. Ocorgo G. Smith, the Third avenue sport, was accommodated with a wager of $300 to $400 on Jim, and said that ho would have about $2,000 more to speculate at this jirlco this morning. Frank Mason, Into on Monday night, agreed to act as stakeholder for a wager of $500 even on Fltz. Teddy Foley nlso managed to llnd a cus tomer for tho rcmulndcr of his commission of $2,000 on Corliett, Ho consented to take $1,500 against this sum with a. Wcstorn sport. Tim McGrath, ono of tho men who trained Tom Sharkey for his battle with Corbett, believes that tho ox-champion has an Iron-clad cinch, and gave $.100 to $175 yesterday, ne also wagered 100 even with Tom O'Hourko that Dal Haw kins would dofoat Martin Flaherty. Solly Smith nlso hns a wager down on Hawkins with O'Hourko. Smith defeated Hawkins a fow yonrs ago and says ho will whip Flaherty quickly. " Mysterious" Billy Smith's admirers are not In clined to back him, owing to tho fact that they lieliovo bo will lose his head and commit n foul. J. Duko Murray, buslnoss manager of the Grand Opera Houso, yesterday accepted an oven-money wager of $200 on Fitz. Acting on a telegram from Jimmy Wakoly, P. Cllggett went down tho lino offering $1,000 to $800 on Corbott. Cllggett claims that he had no troublo in finding a taker for the amount. Charles II.

Tho sensational tight between Con Doyle of Chicago and Jack Held of Ireland at the Anieri canSportlngClub on Monday night made Beveral Fltzsimmons supporters give rout to their feel ings yesterday, ono of them said: "Wouldn't it lie funny If the big fight turned out the same way I Hero is Doyle, like Fitz Blmmons, a lerritlo hitter and able to receivo punishment, while Itcid, liko Corbott, is u clever boxer and a hard Jabber. Sup pose Jim cuts Bob all up In tho llrst ton rounds and tho latter receives his gruel with tho idea of landing a heavy fiunch on tho point of tho Jaw. Wouldn t hat bo a repetition of thlsafTair to-night I Well, that's what wo are banking on. Fltz, If ho can land, will score a knock-nut, whether ho Is badly punished or not. Just as Doyle has done." Scroral Corbett enthusiasts ridiculed thlB ar gument by declaring the Callforninn would seo to It that no knock-out blow reached his jaw, even If ho had to stay lntho ring for twenty-four hours. "Ho will simply tiro Fltz out, they said, " and will then rut him to pieces." SHEI13IAX AXD rOJlEiaif AFPAUtS. Tbn Xlcams-ua Cannl Cuba Abrogation or the Clajton-llulwer Treaty, "Washington, March 10. There Is every Indi cation of n much freer interchange of views and of confidences between the State Department and tho Committee on Foreign Itelations of tho Senate since tho advent of the new Administra tion. The visit of Secretary Sherman to the Capitol this afternoon was entirely unexpected, and tho llrst that was known of his visit was when, niter his lunch, a messenger Informed Chairman Davis that Mr. Sherman was at tho commlttco room. An impromptu meeting was called, and for an hour the commlttco and tho new Secre tary of Stato conferred about our relations with other powers. There was considerable discussion relative to the construction of the Nicaragua Canal. Mr. Sherman is favorablo to tbo1 project, but has taken thoground In his speeches In thoScnnto that tho canal should bo constructed through tho Instrumentality of the United States alono, rnthor than through the agency of a prlvnto corporation aided and assistcil by this Govern ment in tbo mntter of bonds. Only n few days before tho expiration of tho Fifty-fourth Congress, immediately following the protest of Minister Rodriguez or the Greater Ilepubliu of Central America, Mr. Sherman re ferred to tho Frellnghuyson-Znvala treaty sent to tho Scnoto on Dec. 10, 18S4, by President Arthur, and withdrawn by President Cleveland at the lnstnnco of Socretury Bayard within ten duvs after bis accession tn oflleo in Mnrch, 1885. Ily this treaty Nicaragua offered to give to the United States absolute control of her territory as far as tho construction of this cannl was con cerned. Mr. Shorman In his speech said ho hoped this treaty could be revived and as much us Bald that when ho should bo Socretary of State this question would lie investigated. It 1b understood bo told thu committee to-day he had hopes of securing another concession from Nicaragua, and tho Initial steps would Bonn bo taken with that end in view. It Is not bcllovcd by tlio committee, nnd Mr. Shorman does not, it Is said, dispute tho proposition, that tho Claytnn-Bulwer treaty will operate to prevent tho negotiation of a treaty with tho Greater Republic or Nicaragua. Mr. Morgan, howover, proposes to get rid of this ob jectionable convention if possible, nnd Inter In the afternoon, after tho conference with Mr, Sherman, olfered his joint resolution declaring tho Clayton-Bulwer treaty to bo abrogated. While Mr. Sherman was present tho Cuban situation was touched iion. It wus stated that the Senato and tho country would lie put In pos session of all tho fucta concerning tho troubles In Cuba, nnd thut tho policy of suppressing tho ncu'B would no longer prevail. As a result of Ibis conference It Is said that several resolutions may soon bo Introduced ask ing for Information and correspondence which hus beon suppressed, und which, tho committee has assurances, will bo promptly transmitted to tho Senuto and tho country.

Tho rough-and-tumble, catch-as-catch-cnn scramble for Federal patronago was repeated for tho tenth time beforo tlio doors of tho Whlto Houso wore fairly opened. Senators ami Representatives, many of them bringing friends and constituents, entered and asked to seo the President. Tho usual contingent of chronlo oflleo seekers found its way Into tho mansion beforo 11, the hour sot for the meeting of tho Cabinet. Tho fact that this was Cabinet day had Utile effect In keeping tho crowd In check. Between 10 and 11 tho President saw more men, per haps, than during tho samo hours on any other day since ho was Inaugurated. Only one branch of Congress was In session, nnd, as n conse quence, n good portion of the members of tho House colled, eomo to "pay their respects," others to oak for oflleo.

Ho camo early, soon after sun-up, nnd remained but n fow moments. Many Important events hnvo transpired slnco ho called nt tho Executive Mansion. Ho was out of Congress two years, having been sent to tho rear on a Republican tidal wave, but ho comes back ns cnthuslastio a champion of frco silver ns before. Another plcturesquo character that has lwcn haunting tho Whlto Houso for tho last ten days again appeared this morning. Ex-ltcprcscntn-tlvo Plcklcr Is tbo man. Ho wanted to be Com missioner of Pensions, but President McKInloy objected, and, It Is understood, has tendered tho place to tho Hon. II. Clny Evans. Major Plcklcr camo this morning, however, with n smllo on his face. It was tho llrst time ho bad smiled for a week. Every day he hod appeared with n down cast countenance, but to-day there was a change Ho camo with Senator Kyle, who spoke a good word In his behalf. Mr. Plcklcr left tho White Houso Impressed with tho belief that tbo polit ical whirligig would yet throw somothing tn his hat. Tall Senator Piatt of Connecticut camo early In tho day und was among tho llrst to seo tho President. There nro many nlco Foderal ofliccs In thu Nutmog Stato which Mr. 1'latt would like for his friends, and his visit to-day was to speak for three or four good olllces before they should bo parcelled out by tbo other Senator from Con necticut. Now that J.

He camo over from tho Arlington, where bo breakfasted with John Milholland, and bo wanted to seo tho President in the Interest of J. II. Drake, u can didate for Consul at Chemnitz, Germany. Mr. Drake formerly lived In South Dakota, but is now a resident of Now York, and Senator Kylo and Major Picklor vouched for him as a man of sterling integrity, great personal worth, and de serving of some recognition at tho hands of tho Chlof Executive. lloios Penrose, Pennsylvania's junior Senator, headed a delegation of llftecn or twenty Repub licans who had business with the President, Representatives Arnold, Connell, Butler, Urum, Bobbins, Culp, and Hicks were some of tho men with Mr. Penrose. Each man had somo sort of an nxc to grind, but the main purposo in tho delcga tlon's coming was to got acquainted with tho President. Many of tho Representatives nro new to Washington, and had never met tho Ex ecutive before. Representative Arnold recommended J. Irvino Shaw for Consul to Bordeaux, France. Hcn ntorPenroso bucked the request. Tho Presi dent talked with each member of tho delegation separately, and all came away much pleased with their trip.

Tho now tariff bill was considered to-dny by tho Ways and Means Committee. Tho morning session lasted threo hours. Mr. Russell of Connecticut, It appears, was largely responsible for the woollen schedule, which was explained by him. Tho changes in the ngrlcultural schodulo were Interpreted by Mr. Ilolllver of Iown. Tho Iron, steel, and glassware schedules wero explained by Mr. Dalzoll of Pennsylvania; thoso in sugar by Mr. Payno of Now York, and those In wood by Mr, Tawney of Minnesota, Mr. Dolllvor stated In rcforenco to tho agri cultural Bchcdulo that tho changes wcro moro In form than substanco. Tho duty on animals was less than tho McKInloy rate. As far as oranges wero concerned, tho duty was assessed by tho pound instead of by tho hulk, in order to socuro a moro cquitablo adjustment In tho collection of tho duty. Tho Increased rate on broken rieo was mado to prevent evasion of the present law. Cblccory root, hitherto free, was now dutiable at threo cents a pound. Inasmuch as an Industry hnd been rocontly established In tho West to prepare it as a substituto for coITeo. Mr. Payno was asked as to tho amount of rov cnuo tho sugar tchedulo would produce Ho could not say, but thought the lncreaso would bo about $111,000,000. Mr. Robinson of Louisi ana estimated the rcvenuo from sugar to bo $50,000,000 per annum. It mm decided at tbo afternoon meeting of tho commlttco that an adjournment should lie taken from this ovening until 10 o'clock Thursday morning. The purpose of this was to penult tho IJeniocratio members to study tbo bill nnd to prepare thu amendments which titer propose otfcrlng when tho commlttco reassembles. Tho minority will meet to-morrow afternoon at tho Capitol and decido upon tho lino of policy to bo pursued by them in committee nnd in the House. It 1b still undecided whether tho bill shall bo reported on Thursday, but tho Democratic members believe this to bo the intention of the majority. Tho understanding is that if tlio bill bo reported on Thursday It will bo taken up at onco for consideration without waiting for tho Democratic minority report. Somo of tho lto- Subllcan mcmlicrs think two weeks should suf co tor debuting the measure In tho House. The liquor schedule was tho first to bo con sidered this afternoon. Mr. Kvans of Kentucky explained Its provisions. He showed how the duty on brandy had been increased from $1.80 to S'J.OO n gallon, mid pointed to advantages tho winu producers of Franco would gain if that Government should give this country a cor responding advantage on our exports. Mr. Hussollof Connecticut was questioned as to tbo paragraphs constituting the cotton sched ule. Ho snld that this schedule did not differ materially from tho present law except that speclilc rates had been substituted for ad va lorem ones. Hose, underwear, combination suits, corset covers, &c, wore i!5 per cent. Iielow tbo McKlnley rnte. In uo case, he maintains, wero thu rates in tho now bill so excessive as In tho luw of 18110. Tlio schedule relating to flax and Juto was dis cussed by paragraphs and tho inquiries of the Democrats woroanswerod by Mr. Payne of New York. This schedule, ho snid, contained practi cally tho McKlnley rates. In reply to a query why cotton bagging, now on the frco list, had been restored to tbo dutiablo list nt h a cent u square yurd and 15 per cent, ad valorem, ho suited that, tho additional revenue was needed, and that tbo duty would not materially affect tho price of tho product. Mr. Hopkins of Illinois explained tho provi sions of the woollen schedule. Mr. Russell spoko on tho silk and paper schedules. It. was ex plained that buttons of all kinds were placed In u paragraph by themselves, nt a rate between the old nnd tho present law, in order to simplify the collection of the revenue. yoiiAKF.n Axn haxxa.

If the two Ohio Senators, Joseph Benson Forukor and Marcus Alonzo Hanna, aro tho bitter personal and polit ical enemies they are gonorally represented to be, tholr mannner townnl each othor falls to indicato it. Nothing could have been more amia ble than the conference these two political lead c.shnd In the Senate to-day durlngtbodiscusslon of tho eligibility of tho gentleman appointed by tho Governor of Florida to tho vacant Senator ship. The Ohio colleagues sat on a sofa in tho rear of tho senatorial desks, ns closo togothor as they could get, nnd talked long and earnestly. Fed eral patronago was evidently tho subject of tho conference, for Mr. Forakor had a paper with names written on it, nt which Mr. Hanna would glanco occasionally, bobbing his head in ap proval or disapproval. Mr. Forokcr would biuilo nnd look happy when tho heiul bobbed ap provingly, but ho would frown nnd talk moro curnestly. than ever when the head bobbed ncg ativiiv.

WOB, MXB EVeBVWBJBBla, j I ODD KIND OF KLEPTOMANIA TECVLIAR CASE 6F MRS. B1MFSOX OF XEWARK. She la Accused New of Swindling Several Women by means of Forced Notes from friends Asklnr ftor Loans Police Bay This Is the Third Time She Has Ileen Ho AfTccted. When tho police of the Fourth Precinct of Nownrk arrested Mrs. Carrie Simpson, 30 years old, of 200 Bruco street, on Monday after noon on tho charge of rwlndllng, n queer form of kleptomania was brought to light. Tlio formal chnrgo against Mrs. Simpson wns that of swindling Mrs, Aiinlo Chain boss of 3441 Bergen street and Mrs. Josophtno Elbrocht of 15 Sayro strcot out of $3 each. Mrs. Simpson was arralgnod before Justice Eggers yesterday morn ing and, tn default of $200 ball, was commlttod to the county Jail to await tho action of tho Grand Jury. In the latter part of February a small boy went to tho houso of Mrs. Chamboss with a note. The lady answered tho door horsolf, and the boy, handing her tho note, said: "Hero's a note a lady asked me to give you, and sho sold I wns to got an answer." Mrs. Chambos broko tho seal nnd fonnd that tho note was from her friend, Mrs. 1iulsa Payne, who lives at 40 Hay strcot, only a few blocks from tho Chnmboss rosldeneo. Mrs, Chnmboss Is fairly familiar with Mrs. Payno's handwriting and never doubted thnt her friend had sent tho note. It stated that a hill had Just been presented to Mrs. Payno, and sho found thnt sho lacked Just $3 of enough to mako out tho amount. Would Mrs. Chamboss bo good enough to lend her that amount until Mr. Payno camo homo nnd would she be good enough to send tho money by tho boarorot tho notol Mrs. Chamboss gavo tbo monoy to tho boy and ho trotted off. Night came and Mrs. Payno did not return tho money, Tho next day and tho next camo nnd went and still Mrs. Chamboss heard nothing about the loan. After nearly a week had passod Mrs. Cbnmlxiss was calling upon horslster-ln-Inw, Mrs. Klbrccht, ono day, and sho mentioned tbo fact that Mrs. Payno lmd borrowed tho monoy, and said that she thought It strango that sho had heard nothing of thu matter since. " Well, my dear, voit don't want to Judgo Mrs. Payno too harshly, said Mrs. Klbrccht. "You remember you never havo said anything about tlio :i j ou oorrowod of mo tho other liny. " I borrowed $3 of you!" exclaimed Mrs. Chamboss. What do you moan I 1 novcr bor rowed n cont of you in my life." Mrs. Elbrocht went to ntnblo drawer nnd got a noto which sho bunded to Mrs. Chamboss. Tho noto was almost tlio same in its wording ns tho one Mrs. Chamboss had received from Mrs. Payne, only thut It asked for tho loan from Mr. Elbrccht. " Whyl" exclaimed Mrs. Chamboss, "I never wrote that noto. I never saw It beforo. When did you got It t Who brought It to yout Did yon send tho money, ns this noto requests 1 While Mrs. Elbrocht was explaining whon sho received tho note, that a small boy brought it to her, and that sho certainly did comply with its request, tho door bell rang nnd who should como in but Mrs. Payne. There was n general explanation, and tho threo women concluded that the thing to do was to tell their husbands, which they did. In this way tho swindle was brought to tho uttentlon of the police. Dotectlvo Jocks, who was detailed on tho case, found that a similar attempt had been made to swindle Mrs. Elbrocht's father and had failod. In his case n little girl named Trayboldt. living near Mr. Elbrccht s cigar store, bad brought him a noto signed with the name of somo ono Mr. Elbrocht know, asking for a loan of 5. Mr. Elbrecht had refused to comply with tho request. Tho girl said a woman had given her the note. Detootlvo Jocks told the Trayboldt girl if sho oversaw the woman again to follow nor until shoonterod a house and then Inform the Urst policeman sho could And. Little Miss Tray boldt Is only 12 years old, but she remembered what the detective had told her. Last Saturday afternoon she saw tho woman In Market street, followed her from one plnceto another, and finally saw her enter the house at 201) Bruce strcot. Then sho told a policeman, who happenod to bo only a short distance away, what sho had been told to tell him byDctcctlvo Jacks. Tho policeman reported tho matter at tho sta tion house, and said that tho houso which tbo woman entered was ocouplod by a shoemakor named Simpson nnd his wile. Mrs. Simpson was asked to como to the station houso on Monday afternoon, and sho camo. Tbo Truyboldt girl ldenlltlcd her as tho woman who sent the noto to Mr. Elbrocht. Henry Smith of 2 Baldwin street, the boy who carried tbo noto to Mrs. Chamboss, could not Identity Mrs. Simpson as tho woman who hod sent htm to Mrs. Chamboss's house. After thut, Mrs. Simpson wns formally arrest ed. Site flatly dcnlod sending any of the notes, or receiving any of tho money, Or even having seen the Trayboldt girl beforo in life. When sho was arralgnod yesterday morning she asked that her futher.u well-to-do German be Bent for to furnish ball for her. The futbor positively refused to do anything for his daugh ter, and, in consequence, she wns sent to Jail. Tho police of tlio Fourth precinct say that Mrs. Simpson has a peculiar history. According to their story, she was murried nliout four years ngo to a very estimable man, who has always provided her with a comfortablo home. Nothing wns ever beard against her until shortly beforo tho birth of her first child, which is now about two years old. Then Mrs. Elbrecht missed avnluablo diamond ring and diamond broastpin. They woro traced to Mrs. Simpson, und Mr. Simpson returned tho ring when ho found out to whom it belonged. Mrs. Simpson was arrested for the thett, tried, and convicted, but, on lng to tho fact that sho was about to become a mother und owing to the good mime sho had always borne theretofore, sentence woh suspended. Nothing moro unfavorablo was heard of Mrs. Simpson until shortly beforo the birth of her second child, which is now about a year old. Then the widow of Mrs. Simpson's brother, so tho police say, missed, ono day, a bunk book, wlilcn showed a comfortablo balance to her credit in a savings bunk. Inquiry at the bank brought out the fact that a woman hnd presented the book, with a small deposit, somo days beforo, and shortly after ward had drawn out tbo entire amount there standing to tho Widow Simpson's credit, Tho police sny that tbo thett of tho bankbook nnd tho monoy was traced to Mrs. Simpson, but tho mutter was settled within the family instcud of in court. Mrs. Simpson Is now In a dcllcato condition, and her frlcuds do not be lieve she Is responsible for her acts. They believe thnt at such times she isselzod w 1th a manlu for stealing which she cannot con trol. Her husband Is nearly prostrated by his wifo's latest experience in alleged crime.

The Senator's Young Son to no Secretary of Our Bmhasay tn Itome. Washinoton. March 10. Prelsdent Mc Klnley will send to the Senate soon a second budget of diplomatic appointments, and in the list there will be one nomination that will bo received with surprise nnd severe criticism. Daring their recent visits to the White House several Senators have learned thnt the ap pointment of iho young son of Senato- Hale of Maine to be Secretary of the Embassy at Itome has already beon decided upon. Al though Senator Hale's colleagues naturally hesltato to express publicly their disapproval of such an appnlntmont they do not conceal In private conversation their opinions as to Its absolnte unfitness. The young man Is S3 veers old. and just out of college. lie speaks neither French nor Itnllau. has had no experience In public affairs whatever, and possesses no special qualifica tions for such un Important dluloraatlo DosU His appointment, it is said, has been deter mined upon at the request of Senators Hale and Allison. Senators and Reurescntatlves, whether displeased at young Mr. Hale's se lection or lndlffjr-nt to It, are inclined to think that it would have bosn much more In liar mony .with theTHtness of things had he -boen sent to Madrid, where, owing to his father's warm friendship for Spain and his cbamplon- hip in Congress cf Its Cuban pollov he would have boen persona grata. Tho bitch that has occurred over the appoint ment of Gen. Draper of Massachueetta may have had some bearing upon the determination of '.bo President and Secretary Sherman to send Mr. Hale to Rome. That there Is some serious troublo in locating Gen. Draper is cer tain. Ho was first slated for the German Am bassadorship; tben It was said that circum stances mode It necessary that he should go to Italr. Finally he got an offer of the post nf Consul-General to Cuba to succeed Gen. Fltz hugh Lee, which he somewhat testily declined. It is said that for climatic reasons Gen. Dra per prefers not to go to Italy, but as he has been told that tbe German mission Is out of bis reach he mar finally decido to accent tbo Ital ian AmbassadorsiilD, nnd thus be able to avail himself of the valuable diplomatic knowledge and experience of young Mr. Hale of Ellsworth, Me.
