CHAMPION JIM On the Proposed Change in Boxing Rules. He Disapproves of a Project to Put a Winded Man on His Feet the Second Time. By the Associated Press. Pittsburg, April 2. James J. Cor- bett talking of the proposed changes in boxing rules as advocated by the Olympic club at New Orleans, declared himself opposed to making five minute rounds and two minute rests. "It is not necessary," he said "to make any changes, and none are likely to be made. The present rules were adopted by universal consent and noth ing short of that can change them. If the Olympic club is allowed to make changes every club in the countrv can do the same thing and there would be no standard for boxing tournaments." He was opposed to a two minute rest because it would give a winded man too much chance to recover. A SOUTH AMERICAN GRANT. A Syndicate of Americans Have an Opportunity.

Wife of an Early Chief Justice of Arizona. The Detroit Free Press of the date of March 25, records the death at Flint, Mich., the day before of Mrs. Lucy Howard, well known and loved by the older Arizonians. She was the wife of Hon. Sumner Howard, who a dozen years ago was chief justice of the su preme court of Arizona. Though at that time the seat of government was at Prescott, in a social way Mrs. How ard was a resident of the whole terri tory and on intimate terms with the wives and members of the legal fra ternity and well remembered by many of the older residents ot rhcenix, par ticularly by the families of General Churchill, Col. Thos. Fitch and Mr. S. D. Lount with whose family the judge was distantly connected. IN A TIGHT BOX. Arraignment of the Youthful Postoffice Burglars. They Make Additional Confessions Concerning the Manner In Which It was Done. Eugene Bicknell and A. C. Parsons, the two boys arrested on Monday after- j noon for the postoffice robbery, were ar raigned yesterday morning before United States Commissioner Crenshaw. The examination of Parsons was set for this morning and that of Bicknell for tomorrow. In default of a bond of $1,000 each both were remanded to jail. A younger brother of Bicknell's, Ralph, 12 years old, was also arrested but his mother was given charge of him on her promise to produce him for examination on Friday. The two boys in jail are as communi cative as ever. They are constantly making new confessions which do not conflict with their stories when first arrested, but only corroborate them and throw additional light on the rob bery. They would no doubt have told it all at the beginning but there was so much to tell that one day was inade quate. Beside they were scared to the point of insanity. A night in jail, how ever, has restored a degree of calmness and brought a clear, though a not much more hopeful, view of the situation. How they got into the boxes was a mystery, since none of the keys found in their possession would unlock any of the boxes. They claim to have been prosecuting the business for some time and said they were first tempted by discovering keys left in Borne of the boxes by careless holders. This is on observation that a great many other persons have made at one time or an other, and when one comes to think of it it seems strange that more hardened thieves than these 16-year-old boys did not first see the possibilities for plunder offered by the theft of the keys. Parsons confesses that once they stole a letter containing a check for $20. Thev didn't know what to do with it an'l so they destroyed it. For the last three months there has been a great deal of complaint by pa trons of the office of lost or misplaced letters. These complaints have been recurrent in spite of the utmost care by the postoffice officials and now they be lieve a solution of the mystery has been found. A clerk sleeps in the office every night but his presence asleep or awake could not deter this kind of robbery. People unlock their boxes at all times of the day and night so that the open ing of a box by an improper person by means of a stolen key would not na turally arouse suspicion or even attract attention. The boys' mothers visited them in jail yesterday afternoon again. On their first visit they seemed almost heartbroken but now they have come to look upon the matter with Eorrowtul resignation. They say that according to the boys' own story they were not misled by evil companions, they en tered upon the crime contrary to the precepts they had received at home and. must now take what comes, whether it be Yuma or San Quentin. The Defendant Himself on the Stand. His View of the Alleged Mis appropriated Sum. A Self-Confession That Attorneys) at Law Are Unprofitable Tenants. The farther the examination in the Goodman embezzlement case progresses the more attractive it becomes to the curiosity inspired auditor. Threads of the tangled Daggs case run through it in every direction and threaten dire em barrassment to the defendant. The territory finished its case yesterday afternoon and the defendant himself was put on the stand. His direct exa mination was not concluded at 4 o'clock and a recess was taken until 10 o'clock this morning. The end of the case will probably be reached today. Yesterday forenoon was occupied with the testimony of the Daggs brothers. An attempt to idvestigate the title of A. J. Daggs to the property whose rent amounting to $321, the defendant is charged with having embezzled, was) continued until afternoon. The de fense contended that the introduction ot testimony on this subject was proper on the theory that any testimony not entirely irrelevant, and which would tend to attack the reliability of wit- . nesses on the other side, was allowable. District Attorney Millay on the other hand took the ground that any testi mony relating to the .title was irrele vant, and that whether or not A. J. Daggs, the prosecuting witness, was the owner of the properly he stood in that character to the defendant, who had accepted the agency for him. Against this theory JiKijje Campbell introduced an illustration. i"jMow,?' said he to the district attorney, "sup pose Justice Johnstone should author ize you to colh cS renrs from tenants in the Monition block, suppose you should proceed to collect them, put the money into your pocket and appropriate it to-your own use; could the justice charge you with embezzlement, seeing you bad no claim upon the proceeds from the building?" In reply to this suppositious case Mr. Millay said: ''Let's carry your illustra tion a little farther. Suppose th jus tice was not the owner of the building, yet had a claim upon its proceeds through a lease from Mr. Monihon, the owner; suppose he should sublet rooms in it to, say Mr. Willis, Col. Fitch and Judge Campbell (all attorneys for the defense) and suppose he 6hould then make me his agent " "You couldn't collect the rent," broke in Col. Fitch. "I couldn't collect it?" repeated Mr. Millay, with the surprise a man natural ly exhibits when he has brought np suddenly against a hidden law. "Not from that crowd," said the colonel, and the rest of the illustration was lost in a roar of laaghter. But the investigation of the title was allowed and the defense began it, bnt did not prosecute it very far, for it was developed that though there had been a kaleidoscopic shifting of Daggs' inter ests last summer, the shifting was regu lar and the title to tbe property in question was in A. J. Daggs to all in tents and purposes. The case of the territory was closed and the defendant was put on the stand. The beginning of his evidence was a description of his relations with, the Daggs brothers. The collection of rent amounting to $321 as charged was admitted but was regarded by him as an item in an ac count current running through a period of several months. The books of the commission house were produced in evidence and the account of the Daggs Bros. wascheckedup and balanced when it appeared that the defendant owed somebody that is some one of the Daggs, he didn't know who, the sum o( $16.75 which he stood ready to pay. At this point a recess was taken until this morning. Under the attachment proceedings begun against Mr. Goodman by Daniel Kloas last Saturday all the perishable stock remaining in the commission store was sold by Constable Garfias yes terday afternoon. It was ruinously cheap. Unions sold at from 65 to 85 cents a sack and thirteen boxes of oranges brought only 55. The pro ceeds of tbe sale were $46. The enormous crowds at the Bee Hive daily is ample evidence that the goods are attractive and the prices right. They'll Soon Know. San Fbancisco, April 2.
