Chicago the Scene of the Con cluding Chapter. Baron Kalnoky Loved Not Wisely But Too Well. A Real Duel Between an Austrian Noble man and a Bot-Klooded Southerner. Associated Press Dispatches. Chicago, May 24.—Chicago was today the scene of a denouement in a genuine romance with all the es sential features—wealthy nobleman, disinherited son, beautiful woman, duel and mystery. Baron Rudolph Kalnoky de Koraspatak, a nephew of Count Kalnoky, of Vienna, made his first yisit to Chicago above a month ago, registering at the Richelieu merely as as Rudolph Kalnoky, of New York. He was handsome and distinguished and appeared to be the possessor of unlim ited means. The object of his stay in Chicago was a mystery to all except the manager of the Richelieu, Mr. Carlson, to whom he partially told his story. Kalnoky according to his own con fession, was at one time a staunch de fendant and admirer of Queen Natalie. He had also been the chosen companion in the revels of the gay young crown prince, whose suicide shocked all Eu rope. Seeking a change in America, he accidentally met Miss Mittie Atherton, a member of the Duff company, during its last Chicago engagement. She lea the baron a doleful life, both here and in other citi»s. She constantly kept be fore him that she could never become his wife, as her heart was already given to one for whose sake she would shortly quit the stage. Kalnoky finally became convinced of the truth "of this and remained in Chi cago when the company left. Weaken ing, however, he went to Louisville in one last effort to conquer the pretty actress. While there he seems to have met one of his numerous rivals, though not the successful one. Last Friday he returned to the Richelieu, having given up the idea of following the actress. The same night the man whom he met in the south dined with him. A too free indulgence in wine quickly ended the friendly character of the meeting. A cry of rage was heard and a heavy fall. Kal noky had knocked his companion down for speaking disrespectfully of the wo man he loved. An hour afterward a , friend of the southerner appeared with a respectful note demanding # oteetMig. Kalnoky accepted. The affair was carried out with regard to every nice distinc tion of the code. Saturday night the baron was informed that a'l the details had been arranged, and that the meet ing would take place at Jackson park at daybreak Sunday. Rapiers were the weapons selected. At 4 o'clock this morning Kalnoky entered a carriage and was immediately joined by his second, stopping on the' •way to take in a physician. At Jackson park they found the opposite party. Shortly after 6 o'clock the men faced each other, and a moment later the word was given, and like a flash the southerner commenced the attack. After some sharp fighting, the southerner in flicted a slight wound in the right leg of the baron. A little later the baron, by a clever lunge, pricked the skin on the right shoulder of his adversary. The latter, however, parried admirably, and at this moment, to the horror of the seconds, the baron appeared to slip and literally fall on the point of his adver sary's sword, which entered his neck. A stream of blood gushed from the wound. The seconds immediately stopped the combat, and the baron's wound was hastily dressed. After ascertaining that the result would not necessarily be fatal, the southerner and friend left the field. Every effort to identify this man has failed. It is thought, however, that he is a son of a prominent citizen of At lanta, Ga., famous in the? south as an authority on the code duello, and who, though quite young, has taken an active part in several affairs of honor. Baron Kalnoky's exact whereabouts are kept secret. From conversations with Manager Carlson, he fears the baron's misplay was not a mere acci dent, but that, finding himself facing one not hie equal in swordmanship, he took that means of honorably ending his life. If this was the case, Carlson fears Kalnoky may follow the failure by a suicidal attempt upon his own life. DKCLAIiII) FOB BRIGGS. The Presbyterian Controversialist Finds a Champion In Chicago.

Nothing Heard of the Charleston Since She Lsft Acapuloo—The Esmeralda Well Supplied With Money. City of Mexico, May 24. —Advices from Central America say that on Wednesday last a steamer resembling the Itata was seen by a coasting schooner. The latter attempted to ap proach the stecmer, when the latter, which was running south, sheered off from her course. This was about thirty miles off shore. The reports published in the United States that the Insurgent warship Esmeralda is short of funds, are denied by her captain, who showed a newspaper correspondent letters of credit and cash amounting** Baore thaa |fjO,ooo. The Mexican government states no reinforcements have been sent to Aca pulco, as the garrison is sufficiently strong to prevent the Esmeralda from landing or taking coal forcibly. NO NEWS FROM THE CHARLESTON. Washington, May 24. —Secretary Tracy said tonight that the navy department had not received any news today of the cruiser Charleston, which is in pursuit of the Itata. This is the seventh day since any word has been received by the department direct from the commander of the Charleston. The secretary is of tiie opinion that the vessel will be heard of next at Callao, Peru, for he believes had she intended to put in at Panama, the place at which it was expected she would, she would have been heard of be fore this time. THAT. ALLEGED AGREEMENT. Secretary Tracy's attention was called tonight to the dispatches from San Francisco reiterating the statements heretofore made that an agreement had been entered into between the insurgent party and the . United States govern ment for the peaceful surrender of the Itata. The secretary, however, refused to discuss the question, merely saying that he had nothing to say about the matter. Inquiry of the state depart ment officials tonight regarding the al leged arrangement above referred to, elicited the reply that so far as they are no such agreement has been en tered into.

A Charter of Liberty as Well as Fit to Be Sung. The Westminster Faith Hard to Set to Music. Eev. Dr. Heber Newton Preaches a Sensational Sermon. lie Says the Reformation Confessions of Faith Must Be Simplified or Thrown Overboard. Associated Press Dispatches. New Yobk, May 24.—Rev. Dr. Heber Newton, of All Souls church, preached a 3ermon this morning which is calcu lated to evoke much discussion in re ligious circles. He made a succinct statement of his much-mooted views. His text was: Hold Fast to the Form of Sacred Words. The reverend gentle man said in substance: "It has been said of the Nicene creed that it was fit only to be sung. On the other hand it would be hard to set the Westminster faith to music. The Ni cene creed is the amplification of the Apostolic creed. Scarcely a doctrine which is in dispute in the churches round about us can furnish a proper ground for dispute in our roomy church. The only affirmation in the Nicene creed is the large elastic declaration : 'I believe in one catholic and apostolic church.' We can thus judge of the Catholicism which would rule out the foremost man in the church for the bishopric, because of his opinion concerning the episcopate. What must we believe concerning the Bible? Nothing beyond the simple declaration of the Nicene creed? Who spoke by the prophets? You may hold to the plenary inspiration of the scrip tures, and believe every word dictated by the Almighty, or you may hold that large and reasonable view which is spreading through our church so rapid ly, with equal loyalty to our only authority, the creed. What does the church bid us believe concerning the story of the Creation? You are equally free to read the story in Genesis as history or a parable. What does the church command us to believe concern ing the origin of evil, the fall of man? Nothing whatever. Concerning the atonement ? Nothing except the lan guage of the creed: 'Whofor us men and for our salvation came down from heav en.' Concerning future punishment? Nothing not contained in the language of the creed: 'He shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead.' "All theories of the character aru| duration of the punishment are extra . creedals. The first form of the articles coptained an article on future punish ment, and that article was afterward withdrawn. "What of the resurrection? That the dead are to rise into life immortal clothed in bodily form, I under stand to be the teaching of our great creeds. The natural of the resurrected body is not affirmed. You are free to believe this in the liberal sense of the body laid in the grave, or in the larger sense in which most men read it. "Concerning the sacrament and the Lord's supper, we are free to believe almost anything that commends itself to Christian consciousness. On all these themes on which the cieeds are silent, it is natural that men should think. Opinions must be formed and held, and the Christian—be he layman or clergy man —is left free to form his own opinion. The Nicene creed is a charter of liberty. It frees us from nine-tenths of the burning questions with which protestantism is on fire today." "Our great creed," concluded the speaker, "is the reconciliation of Chris tianity with itself. Christendom is torn and dismembered before our eyes. It is paralyzed with doubt, the strife of creeds is seen on every side. Man can not find a shelter under the Reformation confessions of faith with their long drawn metaphysics. He who reads the signs of the times sees the alternative to throw overboard the creeds or to simplify them. Today, could our Pro testant churches be content to part with their (Reformation confessions of faith and adopt that great catholic creed which has come down through the cen turies, there would be an end of strife and contention. Dr. Bridgeman would not have to leave his church for his views on the question of future punishment, and Dr. Briggs could excite no conten tion in his church on the question of in spiration. Our great creed is the recon ciliation of Christian faith and modern thought of theology and science." VOTED FOB FitKK COINAGE. The Western Delegates Dominated the Trans-Mississippi Congress. Denver, Col., May 24.—The Trans- Mississippi congress voted for the free coinage of American silver, and then ad journed to meet at Omaha next October. The extreme western delegates carried the convention by storm, and the agri cultural states had only a feeble hear ing; hence the result of the meeting re mains problematical. With a possibility of a more complete representation from the delegation who were this week in Cincinnati, the silver resolutions may be amended at the Omaha meeting, to provide for the coinage of American sil ver, only. The closeness of the vote be fore adjournment, demonstrates that the silver men overestimated their strength; although lowa, Louisiana, Kansas, Nebraska and Arkansas were not in the convention, the vote was 55 to 58 in favor of unlimited free coinage. Blame Getting on His Feet. New York, May 24.—Secretary Blame arose this morhing, ate a hearty break fast and sat up during the morning.

Johnson soon fell dead with three bullets in his body. Sprinkles died shortly afterward with a bullet in his left side. THE SLOOP HALCYON. One of Her Owners Refuses to Talk About Her Cargo. San Francisco, May 24.— W. W. Whaley, one of the owners of the fa mous sloop Halcyon, reported to be now lying off the coast of British Columbia, arrived in the city a week ago. Whaley was with the Halcyon on its trip to China and Japan. He left the Halcyon at Honolulu, recently, and came here on the Australia. He was seen by a re porter, but positively refused to answer any questions as to the move ments of the Halcyon or as to the dispostion made of the opium which it has been reported that she was carrying. A dispatch recently received from PortTownsend stated that the Halcyon had landed the opium which she brought from Hong Kong ,at Honolulu, but from the fact that she is known to be hovering on the coast of British Columbia, it is surmised tkat she discharged a portion of the opium only at the islands, and is waiting for a ' favorable opportunity to smuggle the [ remainder into the United States. Baron Hlrsch's Colony. Paris, May 24.—Baron Hirsch in an i interview said not Uruguay but the Ar- I gentine Republic would be the site for i his proposed Jewish colony.

Italian Justice. Rome, May 24.—The trial at Rari of I 179 members of the Mala Vita society, j has ended.

A White Prisoner Stabs a Black One Dur ing a Dispute About the Respective Merits of Corbett and Jaokson. San Rafael, Cal., May 24. —In a quarrel at San Quentin prison, yester day, one Vernon, a negro convict, was seriously stabbed by a white prisoner, named Ed. Williams. At the time of the affray the two men were in the yard before going into the jute' mill to work on the night shift. They were disputing as to the different merits of the pugilists, 'Corbett and Jackson, when as words waxed hotter, Williams drew a caseknife which he had obtained .from the dining room, having previously sharpened it, and plunged the blade in 7 the left side of the negro, pierefng his body just below the ribs. The com batants were then separated, and the wounded man conveyed to the prison hospital, where he is now resting quietly. The" attending physician con siders the wound dangerous and the man's recovery doubtful. The officials are very reticent concerning the affray and rather reluctant in giving informa tion. Williams is said to have been be fore this a very quiet prisoner, and his action has occasioned considerable sur prise, having only eleven days more to serve. He was convicted of burglary in the second degree at San Francisco and sentenced to three years imprisonment. WRECKED AND BURNED. A Freight Train Encounters a Burning Trestle In Oregon. Portland, Ore., May 24.—An east bound freight train on the Union Pacific was wrecked and six cars burned at a bridge near Viento, a few miles west of Hood rivv. las.t night. As the train came around the curve the engineer saw that the trestle was on fire. He was so close to the burning portion that it was useless to attempt to stop the train, so he threw the throttle wide open and dashed ahead. The track swayed and rocked with the weight of the en gine, but it crossed in safety, as did an empty car or two behind it. Following these were twelve cars loaded with stone. Under these, the trestle went down, and continued to burn till some three hundred feet of it was consumed, with the cars upon it. The passengers were transferred by boat at The Dalles and arrived here today. The trestle was repaired today. JIM AND CHARLIE. Pugilist Corbett on the Outs With His Manager. San Francisco, May 24. —Jim Corbett has quarrelled with his manager, Charlie Stenzel, and will not travel «ith him any more. Corbett rejected Stenzel's advice and accepted the $2500 offered by the California club, instead of half the purse for his fight with Jackson. Stenzel, who backed Corbett and paid all his expense", was much displeased at Corbett's action. Corbett denies that he has quarreled with Stenzel, bu| says he will not go on the road with him. He is considering an offer from the Olympic club, to act as instructor, and also an offer to travel with a minstrel company, A SPIKED SWITCH. Two Liv es Lost Through Some Mis creants' Deviltry, Jonesboro, Ark., May 24.—A passing train on the Cotton Belt road was wreck ed in the yards here last night by a spiked switch.
