Many People See Them and Converse With the Bandits. The Officers at Visalia Notified, and Again In Pursuit—The Nerve of Chris Evans Commands Admiration. By the Associated Press.] Visalia, Cal., Sept. s.—Evana and Sontag were found yesterday near tbe residence of Supervisor Ellis, twenty miles north of thia city, by two of Ellis's children. Tbe men were camped not 100 yards from tbe house. The children returned and had their aunt go with tbem. When she saw Evans, she aaid, "How are you, Chrie?" Evana then turned to Sontag and aaid: "We bad aa well go to tbe bouse now," which they did. As tbey appioacbed the bouse, Ellis met tbem and aaid, "How do you do, Chriß?" Evana, after a minute, replied: "I will shake bands with you, Sam, though I ought not." Tbe two robbers stayed at the house from noon till dark, when they took a cart and horse of Ellis and started away. Mra. Ellia bad been very sick, and a number of neighbors called to see her during the afternoon, and saw tbe rob bers. After the outlaws left a man came to town and informed Sheriff Kay, who immediately went to Goehen and asked for a special train, that he might meet the southbound train at Selma, and prevent the men from tak ing a train. Not finding the men, the sheriff immediately returned to town at 3 o'clock thia morning, and took the team to Ellis's house. Strik ing the trail of tbe robbers, be followed aeven milea toward tbe city, where the trail waa lost. There are three roads leading east, west and south. The rob bers took one of the two first named, but travelers had obliterated the tracka. Evana told Ellis that be had not been far away since the train robbery; that he was not leaving now. He bad some business to attend to, and then he would give bis attention to tbe Southern Pa cific. Ellia says Evana is very cool and col lected, but Sontag ia somewhat nervous. Sontag has not fully recovered the use of bia broken leg, nnd is lame. They feasted heartily at Ellis's, Sontag keep ing bis gun on his lap, while Evans placed his against tbe door, and near him. When they took Ellis's horse and cart, Evans told the owner he would pay for them if he returned alive. There is no mistake as to the identity of the robbers, as Ellis and others at tbe house have known Evans for years. Sheriff Kay is positive Evans and Son tag took to the plains. There are many places on King's river and tbe Kaweah where they can safely hide during tbe day, and then travel at night. Supervisor Ellia waa one of the pur suers of Evana after Beaver was shot, and Evana knew that, aa be said: "Ellia you must not hunt me again." It is believed here that tbe men will hold up another train before tbe week expiree. They were armed with two Bhot-guna, two revo'vere and Winchester rifles. They carried a can containing ammunition, or giant powder. EVANS'S NERVE. How He Has Baffled All His Would-Be Captors. Visalia, Sept. 15.—Deputy Sheriff W. E. Russell was the gentleman who brought the news to town that Evans and Sontag were at the residence of Su pervisor Sam Ellis, who is a brother-in law of Russell. The latter arrived within sixty yards of Ellis' home, and his sister-in-law, Mrs. Belle Scoggine, aware of his coming, beckoned him to stop. As he did not do so, she ran and met him, telling him not to come near the house, as Evans and Sontag were there and had said they would care for him. Mr. Gartner, also at tbe house, came and told him the same thing. Russell then turned about and came to Visalia, as hia six yeara' experience as an officer had satisfied him it would be useless to try to raise a poeee in the thinly settled section. Evana waa very communicative while at Ellis's. He said he was near where the cart and horee were found tbe night after the killing of Beaver. He and Sontag were bid behind a rock when Deputy Sheriff Hall and Constable Hall passed, and could have killed anyone they desired. The second posse whb camped on Nigger Greek, lay down near tbem and they heard all the conversation. Evans knew every man that passed, and bad he desired to kill any of them, he could easily have done co. Had a detective gone along the road he would have killed him. He said he intended yet to kill a man (mentioning no name,) who proposed firing into hia house the night it waa surrounded. "From Nigger creek," aaid Evans, "we went to Stoke'a valley, and have been there ever since." For three nights they were camped within 150 yards of Ellis's house, and took blankets from Ellis's barn to sleep in every night, returning them to the barn before day light. He told of different conversations be heard by those in pursuit, occurring on different occasions. He bad read tbe papt-rs carefully all along, and knew of current events and what bis pursuers aaid of bim. He Btated that there was no truth in the statement of Detectives Hume and Th acker tbat they bad . found money buried in hia yard in Viaalia, as none had ever been buried there. Neither Sontag nor Evana had had tbe use of razors since tbey left Visalia, as their long whiskers and hair testified. On top of Stokes mountain, where the robbers have evidently been located, one can see every town in the country. Anyone approaching the point would be discovered several miles distant before reaching there. There is a fine spring on the mountains, and 200 yards distant is a dense jungle, where tbe men could not easily be unearthed. At tbe mouth of a cafion near Ellis' ranch is a rocky Rorge, a good biding place, and there is only one trail leading up this cafion from Ellis' house. Located as the men were, they could with their guns' pick off all intruders, and their capture be impossible. Sbeep and cattle grazing in the mountains would furnish meat, while the neighboring ranches would furnish fruit and vegetables. Evans's house in this city was guard ed last night by trusty men, and, bad the robbers appeared, tbey would have been taken, dead or alive. Evans has numerous friends in tbe country, and men were beard to say, on tbe streets of Visalia, today, that they admired his nerve, and hoped be would escape. KEEPING OUT CHOLERA. SUCCESSFUL QUARANTINE REGULA TIONS AT NEW YORK. The Plague Thus Far Prevented from Landing—Several New Cases on the Infected Vessels in the Harbor. v. — . New York, Sept. s.—Fifty special physicians, to inspect the city with a view of warding off cholera, or other in fectious . diseases, were sworn in this morning, and began work at once. Captain Bartenheuser, superintendent of the Hamburg-American company's docks, went down tbe bay thia morning to take supplies to the detained ships. He brought with bim on his return a number of tele grams from passengers on tbe Norman nia. They had been written in Dr. Jenkins' office, from copies taken by himself from the ship. Dr. Jenkins had taken precautions, and felt justified in'sending them. When tbe messenger entered a Western Union company's office there was a panic, and the mes sages were refueed. The houae committee of the stock ex change ia preparing to fight the cholera, and ia taking precautions againat it. The board of health issued an official bulletin this afternoon! declaring that no cases of cholera had occurred in the city, nnd that the city is now more ex empt from contagious diseases than at any time in several years. Boarders are leaving the hotels along the shore near quarantine in large numbers, owing to the present pestilence. There is apparently no conflict be tween the state and federal authorities in the matter of detaining ships. A proposition will be made to Dr. Jenkins tonight to permit a telephone cable to be laid to the Normannia as soon as possible. Secretary Foster and Collector Hendricks arrived late this afternoon on the revenue cutter Chandler. A visiting health delegation also came to the quarantine pier from the lower bay, with Dr. Jenkins. An extended conference was held at Dr. Jenkins' residence. Tbe Normannia has three new cases, one of which died. He is Otto Engel, aged 20 years, one of the crew. The two other cases are William Queuf, 16 years, and Theodore Zimmzek, 23 years, both of the crew. The Rugia has three new cases of which one died. The other cases are Hendrick Storr, aged 6 years, Joa epba Pjekoska, aged 30 years, and Johanna Busb, aged 54 years. These three people are of families of other patients which preceded tbem, and have been isolated since their arri val. On the Moravia there are no new de velopments. Among the Normannia's passengers on Hoffman island, one new case was trans ferred to the hospital on Swineburne island. There was one child died today, aged 5 months. LF.Fr TRB TRACK. A Locomotive's Frightful Plunge Into the Hudson. Newburg, N. V., Sept. s.—As train No. 13, on the West Shore road, was ap proaching Cranston, this afternoon, it left the track, and the engine and tender ran into the river, which is very deep at this point, and at once sank out of eight, carrying down Engineer Isenburg and fireman Vanatyle. The coupling between the tender and train broke and the passengers on the train escaped with a bad shaking up, although both the baggage car and smoker went par tially into the water. It is reported, but not confirmed, that some Italian laborers were on the front platform of tbe baggage car and went down. M'KBLVEI'S MURDERER. Relatives of Torres Will Sue the Gov ernment for Damage. San Francisco, Sept. s.—Angel San chez, a relative of Francesco Torres,who was hanged by a mob in Santa Ana re cently, for the murder of Major McKel vey, foreman of Madame Modjeska's ranch, is in this city, representing the widow and children of Torres, and ia preparing to enter a claim against the United States government for tbe death of Torres. He claims he has evidence to show that Torres was not the mur derer of McKelvey, but that the mur derer was a Swede who is now living in Loa Angeles, CONDENSED TELEGRAMS. Daniel Dougherty, the silver-tongued orator of Philadelphia, is dead. There is no improvement in the poet Whittier's condition.

It Waa a Hurricane Battle From Start to Finish—Corbett Springe a Sensation in Regard to Sullivan, By the Associated Press.] New Orleans, Sept. s.—The Olympic club's bigh-priced pugilistic carnival waa inaugurated tonight with the light weight championship, under circum stances auspicious in all respects, save that of weather. But the weather did not dampen tbe ardor of the sports, er hurt the attendance. All afternoon the leading thoroughfares were thronged with an excited, troubled and enthusi astic crowd. Tbe early slump in the betting aroused the spirits of the band of McAuliffe men in town, and the Myer men were depressed. McAuliffe and his men preserved a.reticence about tbe condition of their man that wbb oppress ive, and no one but a small circle of the light-weights saw the champion in his room, which he did not leave during tbe evening, until li is friends came to take bim to the club. It was Eecrecy which kept McAuliffe the favorite. BAIN CHASED THE SPORTS down to tne club earlier than tbey would have gone otherwise. Long be fore twilight the cars headed down town began to fill up, and the crowds on the cars continued to grow. As darkness fell, carriages, cabs, tally-hoa and fur niture wagons, loaded to their utmost capacity, commenced a pilgrimage to the club. On either eide of the street, men, women and children lined up, yeUintr at the hacks as they flew by. Down at the club there was a scene of animation in side and oat. Police kept tbe streets leading to the entrance clear of the motley throng on tbe outside. Tbe club building was a blaze of light. The arena was a double-storied affair, with sitting room for something over 8,000, and never has there been a prettier bat tle ground than it presented this even ing under tbe brilliant rays of a dozen or more electric lights. The crowd was as varied in character as it was large in proportions. There waa no cheering among tbe crowd until Jack Skelly, tbe great ama teur, whoisto go into the ring tomor row night against the colored champion of his class, appeared. The crowd let their lungs loose in a mighty shout when Skelley presented himself. An event happened at the door just before the fight began that was NOT ON THE CARDS. Thomas L. Harris, of Louisville, pre sented himself with two slimly built young persons, handed up tickets and started for the arena. Something in the appearance of the trio attracted at tention, and Oaptain Barrett's officers followed them. It turned out that only one of the party was of the male persua sion. The other two were girls, and gave themselves away. Cf courae they did not get in; on the contrary, they were put under arrest, and taken out side. Myer waa first on tbe ground. After a day's rest in Oarrollton, he got into a carriage with Alt Kennedy and his train ers, and drove leisurely down te tbe club. Tbe Myer party went secretly to tbe room, with the crowd at their heels, and Billy stripped while waiting for time. McAuliffe and his body guard reached tbe club a trifle later. THE PRELIMINARIES. Ex-Mayor Guillot entered the ring ten minutes to nine, and as master of ceremonies, he made a speech. Imme diately after, Prof. John Duffy, referee, entered tbe arena, followed closely by Gapt. Wm. Barrett, who was in charge of the contest. Myer and McAuliffe weighed in at a quarter to nine, the former at 137 M pounds, McAuliffe at 137%. Captain Barrett weighed tbe gloves and found tbem according to tbe law, a full five ounces. Sixty-five hundred people were aaid to be present, and even that number failed to fill tbe mammoth arena. McAuliffe was the first to enter tbe ring, which he did at 9:15. Myer came a moment later; both men were re ceived with ovations. At 9:30 every thing was in readiness for the battle to begin. Both men sat in their corners, viewing each other closely. The men were ordered to shake bands at 9 :2b, and the gong for the first round sounded. Tbe men stepped to the center of the ring, McAuliffe looking pale and Myer rosy. . THE FIGHT BEGINS. First round—Mac led tor tbe stomach, slipped and fell. On regaining his feet, Myer landed a light left, and Jack smiled. Both men were extremely cautious, though McAuliffe was the ag gressor. It was a pretty round and the men were sent to their corners not a bit tbe worst for it. Second—McAuliffe landed a heavy right-hander; Myer clinched, delivering a heavy right himself. McAuliffe knocked Myer down with a heavy right on tbe eye. Just as the round ended, Myer was nearly floored with a heavy right and left on tbe face. McAuliffe looked ten to one the winner at this stage of the game, as he was fighting fast and furious. Third—Both men were weak from their tremendous exertion, though Mc- Auliffe seemed tbe stronger of tbe two. The latter landed several left-handed stomach punches and Myer clinched after receiving a right on the jaw. It waa McAuliffe'B round, and Myer eat in his corner for a minute's rest. He was plainly in distress. Fourth—Both men were eager to fight, and both landed light blows oa bead and stomach. Myer waa knocked down near the corner with a heavy right on the PRICE FIVE CENTS. forehead, and waa staggered from a left swing The fighting so far was some thing terrific. Fifth—The men mixed matters, and had to be parted at the end of the round. Sixth—McAuliffe landed a heavy left on the face, but received the same com pliment in return. Seventh-McAuliffe landed his usual left punch on the nose. Myer aimed a vicious right-hander, but it went into the air. Myer next stopped a heavy neht with his head, and clinched to avoid punishment. The westerner's chances were considered to be better now. Neither man was much hurt. m'auliffe gets first blood. Eighth—The round begun with a hug, and a great deal of clinching waß done in this round. Firet blood was claimed and allowed for McAuliffe. Ninth — McAuliffe nearly knocked Myer down with a right-hand swing. Myer fell from exhaustion, and refused to arise. Tenth—Myer was waiting for a famous right jolt and got it in with terrific force, though McAuliffe did not fall. McAu liffe received a heavy right on the side, and Myer got a double compliment. The round was MeAuliffe's. Eleventh—Nice boxing occurred; both missed light left leads. Twelfth—The referee jumped to the center of the ring and smelt Myer'a gloves, though nothing unfair was at tempted, and the men were permitted to box. Myer was brought to the ropes though the Williamsburger was fearful of a righthand cross-counter. McAu liffe walked jauntily to his corner while the westerner Beemed slow. No stimu lants were offered McAuliffe, though Myer was rubbed and fed with a lemon. Thirteenth—McAuliffe landed a left handed facer and the men clinched. In the rally both men landed blows on the head, Myer getting the best of the ex change. Fourteenth—Terrific blows were land ed, followed by a neat bit of boxing. McAuliffe attempted to feint with bis left for the stomach. Myer would not bight, and the round ended with hon ors easy. myer knocked out. Fifteenth—The opening was charac terized by several awkward attempts on the part of both men, and the audience cheered when Myer was knocked down with a heavy left. McAuliffe knocked him down again as he got op This time he lay helpless on the ropes until he was counted out. It was a heavy right-band awing that did the trick, and McAuliffe waa borno triumphantly on his seconds' ehouldeia to his corner. The 'Williamsburger waa made the recipient of hearty applause, notwith atanding the fact jhat New Orleans is known as a Myer city. MeAuliffe's sec onds opened champagne in their coiner, while Myer was offered a glass of wine by his conqueror, which was accepted, and a hearty handshake wound up the greatest battle recorded in the light weight class Bince the days of Billy Ed wards, Barney Aaron and Sam Colyer. POMPADOUR JIM. He Says the Champion Mnst Fight Fair or Not at All. Montgomery, Ala., Sept. s.—Corbett received a rousing reception at Atlanta, Ga., where a large crowd had gathered. He spoke to tbe crowd and shook bands with a dozen or two of them, who climbed up the platform, to offer their best wishes. From Atlanta to Montgomery great crowds gathered at every station. Corbett spent the day between stations quietly, having taken a good deal of lively exercise at Gaines ville. The party will reach New Or leans about 7 o'clock in the morning. Corbett will be driven direct to the resi dence of Mr. Walmslee, where he will remain until the fight. It was learned today that Corbett will serve notice on the Olympic club that unless Sullivan goes into the ring end. fights accordir.s to the Qaeeiisberry rules, there will be no fight. That la, Sullivan will have to show bare fleßh from his navel up. Corbett and his friends claim that in all of Sullivan's previous encounters he had his stomach bandaged up with heavy plasters, from half an inch to an inch thick, and thus protected his stom ach, and took an unfair advantage of hia opponent. This matter will doubtless create a sensation in New Orleans in the morning. THE ALL-ABSORBING QUESTION. Which of tho Two Monitor Gladiators Will be Victor on Wednesday. Never in the history of the prize rine in America has there been a fight in which public opinion was so scattering in its findings, as the great fight which takes place at New Orleanß on Wednes day night. Tbe oldest sporting men in America are equally divided upon tbe question, and while the Sullivanites are outbetting the Corbett party at the rate of 20 to 12, still this fight is hard enough to "get a line" upon as to the more proba ble conqueror. Most fighting men name Sullivan as the winner, simply for the reason that he has demolished every man that ever stood in front of him, ex cept the English champion, Charley Mitchell, whose ring tactics converted a fight into a foot-race. That fight ended in a draw, and it is claimed now that Sullivan's backers, Johnson and Wake ly, paid handsomely for the decision. Outside of that fight, Sullivan has had a "cake walk" over every man that he has met. Probably thehardest fight he ever had was when he whipped Flood, on a barge, in the Hudson river, sometime in 1882. Sullivan was then a comparative novice in the ring, and owed his success largely to the fact that Flood was no better boxer than himself. In his next fight, with Paddy Ryan, at New Orleans, now ten years ago, he met a much abler antagonist than- Flood, for Paddy had whipped old Joe Goes, who was regarded a good fighter in England, in bis day. But it is a notorious fact that Ryan was badly ruptured before he entered the ring; and that his truss slipped off three times'during the course of the fight. Hence Paddy had the worst of it from the very moment be faced hie antagonist. Sullivan was the younger and the fresher of the two, and when Ryan began to the, the sledge hammer blows of Sullivan broke through his enfeebled guard as though it was a girl opposed to him. In his fight with Kilrain he virtually had that [Continued on Fifth Page.]
