PELAGICSEALING. OOOOOOOOOOOO LittleRock, Ark., Oct. 18.-Notwlth-^standlng the many conflicting rumors^^a to .the probability of the Corbett-^Fitzslmmons mill being pulled off, prep^^arations for the affair are being pushed^right along at Hot Springs. This fact^Is oauslng some anxiety among those^who rely upon Governor Clarke to pre^^vent the fight. The railroads have a^big force of men at work building side^^tracks for the accommodation of spe^^cial trains, and the hotels at Hot^Springs are preparing for the influx of^ithe multitude. Wnlttlngton Park Is sit^^uated at the end of the valley and Is^surrounded on three sld.es by a steep^mountain slope forming a natural sup^^port for the seats. All that will be re^^quired will be the planing of the seats^on the mountain side in a stair-step^fashion. An immense canopy will cov^^er the park. Corbett, with his aggre^^gation of pugilists, is In Little Rock,^and gave a performance at the opera^house to-night. Hemight Hart llol^. HotSprings, Ark.. Oct., 18.^Corbett^was brought Into .the city this morning^by the sheriff and arraigned before a^Justice of the peace on the charge of^conspiracy to commit assault and bat^^tery on the person of one Bob Fitzslm-^mons, by agreeing 'to engage In a prize^fight with him. The affidavit of the^prosecuting attorney stated that there^was danger of such a meeting, result^^ing In the defendant doing Fitzsim-^mons great bodily lurm. Corbett was^released upon a petition to the Judge 1^of the chancery court, of whom he^asked for a writ of habeas cor^^pus on the grounds that he^was not contemplating to violate any^of .the laws of the state, hence he was^being Illegally restrained of Ma liberty^by the sheriff. The Justice thereupon^passed Corbett over to the chancery^court. The 'taking of testimony began^*t 1:45 o'clock, but adjournment was^had shortly afterwards, so .that Corbett^might take the 8 o'clock train for Lit^^tle Rock. A deputy went along to see^that Corbett got back In time for the^reconvening of the court. Tak of Declaring It Off. LittleRock, Ark., Oct. 18.^W.

Three hours after the child of^lluda SJ.^nbeig was born she took !t^to the barn and threw It Into the pen Iwith the hogs and waited to see Its^flesh torn fr m its bones by the anl- |mals. The town, as is natural. Is hor^^rified over the aot. 1*. Is believed that^the mother could not have been In her^right mind when she did the awful^deed. It became kn ^wn through her^confession to the physician who attend^^ed her after the birth of the little boy.^and has Just been iold to the sheriff^and county attorney Sixmonths ago Hulita SJonberg, a^g'.rl 19 years of age, came here from^Sweden and secured work as a domes^^tic in the family of John Loutz at Ford^River. Her conduct recently has been^suspicious, and last night she went^out Into the yard and wandered al^out^for a long time. Finally Mrs. Louts^went out and found her In terrible dis^^tress. Adoctor was at once summoned and^it was found that Mm girl had but a^short time before given birth to a baby.^The doctor asked her what disposition^sh- made of the baby, and he was hor^^rified on being told that she had fed It^to the hogs In the yard and waited to e that the Infant was torn Into shreds^and devoured by the hungry pigs in :her presence. IThe woman says the father of the^child lives In Sweden and that she^came to this country to keep the story^of her shame a secret from her parents.^She Is now lying ait the home of John^1/ .in/, in a critical condition. Awarrant has been sworn out for^her arrest, but will not be served until^she It well enough to ho removed to^the county Jail.

HeCriticises Garfield, Orant and Other^Statesmen-silver Also. Chicago,Oct. 18.^ The Intrigues, the^Jealousies and the traitorous knife^thrusts of the last half century of the^American statecraft are revealed in^the fierce light of stern criticism In^John Sherman's ^Recollections of^Forty Years In House, Senate and Cal^-^ent.^ Just published In this city. The^fear that the venerable senator would^reveal secrets long kept from the^public In his forthcoming work has^been to an extent realize!, (rrant.^Garfield, Illalne, Arthur, Harrison and^I other republican leaders are spoken of^with unstinted praise for their high^personal worthy statesmanship, hut^each is In guarded and covert lan^^guage, shown In the less commendable^, light of scheming politicians. The crit^^icism Is almost Invariably Implied^rather than direct, but it stands out^clearly in the work as a whole.^The feature of the book Is Its extreme^i frankness, the style In which Sherman^has expressed himself, showing the^statesman rallier than the professional^l^ook-maker. The work Is marked by^I ^dear-cut senten ^ s and blunt expn-s-^j (dons of opinion, and but little attempt^at literary grace Is made. The book Is^evidently Intend. ! by the author as an^exposition of the financial policy of the^republican party, which, to a great ex^^tent, is his own, and about the exten-^' slve and elaborate history of American^1 finances Is woven anecdote and per-^[ sonal reminlscenOS replete with Mt*f^^! est to every student of politics. Owing^to the close association of Sherman and^James A. Garfield, the criticism of the^nomination of the latter for president^of the United States is perhaps one o(^the most striking features of Uie book.^The author, WMtS carefully avoiding 11^direct charge of treachery on the part^of the ex-president, very significantly^makes It plain that Garfield was nom^^inated at a convention to which he had^gone as a truste 1 leader of the Sher^^man forces. Something of the polit^^ical scheming that again resulted In^^'he defeat of the Ohio statesman at the^national convention of 1888 and brought^about the nomination of ex-Prosldent^Harrison, can easily be read between^the lines In that part of the work de^^voted to this struggle. In discussing^the result Sherman says he became^satisfied that one delegate from New^York controlled the entire delegation^from that state and between Saturday^night,when the nomination seemed cer^^tain to go to Sherman, and M .nd ly^morning, when the tide turned In favor^of Harrison, a corrupt bargain was^made In the Interests of the latter^which secured him the support of N'.-w^York and gave him the nomlnati ^n.^Continuing, the author states In fair^^ness to the tx-president: ^But It is to^the credit of General Harrison to say^that If the reputed lurgain was made^it was without his consent at the^time. Sh.rman savs Oram's administration^was a perijd of scandal and slander.^Perhaps the severest criticism of Gen^^eral Grant's statesmanship is : and uiarkaT'.Son Killed. SanFrancisco.

Dun ^^Co. s Weekly Review of Trade, Which^will Issue to-morrow, will say: The^events of the week are promising In^general, though to speculative markets^not en. ouraglng. The great advance^In cotton has arrested exports and so^deranged exchanges that shipments ot^gold were for a time apprehended, but^the break in the market Indicates that^the natural movement of the product^may soon be restored. The hailing of^demand anl nio-t ; it ^ ^:^^: l.ng ^^:'^prices in the great Industrial markets^show that a season of reasonable at^^tention to natural condition ha* ar^^rived. The cotton market has been^l^artly cornered for early delivery by^New Orleans operators, as It has been^twice In no distant years by Liverpool^speculators. Spinners here and abroad^with much unanimity refrain from^buying largely at current quotations.^Until the price recedes fur enough to^bring out a liberal supply of cotton bills^there will be a possibility of gold ex-^, ports, for other merchandise exports^were small from New York for two^week.-, being 10 per cent, less than last^year, with Imports In the two week* of^October 29 per cent, larger than last^year. In Sept. mher dutlabla Imports^wero 51.2 and for nine months 53.8 per^1 cent, larger thin last year. Wheatdoes not go out freely, and^the attempt to advance prices on M.^n-^day was followed by an Immediate de^^cline. The Atlantic exports, flour In^^cluded, have been In the past three^weeks 4,558,455 bushels against 7,248,111^j last year. The rush of wheat to mar-^! ket and the largest output of flour ever^known at Minneapolis, are not evi^^dences of a great shortage In yield, but^I the price has changed only an eighth^I for the week. Corn Is stronger with-^' out clear reason, for while exports for^the three weeks are 326.840 bushels^against 2S6.703 last year, but an Insig^^nificant fraction of the great yield can^have been disposed of. TheIron industry la still fully en^^gaged or. old orders, but new business^Is so scanty that many of the works^are seeking It at some concessions In^prices, and inly large contracts have^been at $1.75 to $1.80 for bridge plates^quoted at $1 90 tn $2.00. Quotations ara^not lower though a good order com^^mands some discount. Billets sell at^$21. and rods at $28 at Pittsburg. The^wants of business In iron wire and nails^continue. 'Mills have to compete hi pig^Iron and other products with specula^^tors who took large quantities on ad^^vancing prices, and actual consumption^cannot !^^ f ilrly measured unless the^speculators are out of the way. Textilemanufacturers have a strong^market for materials to support them,^but scarcely any advance Is seen this^week In cotton goods, though the rise^for the month li ^ s a v. raged 4.1 per^cent., and there seems such a halt as^ap|^ear^ la month ago In Iron products.^The prices of some worsteds have been^advanced because of advances abroad,^but it Is as questionable as ever how^far the market can be held by | IBMstlS^makers, and woolen manufacturers^have n. ' only to f^ e foreign competi^^tion, but an especial tendency of pop^^ular demand toward worsted fabrics.^1 Failures for the week have been 263^against 25.1 last year. HeWas Well I'umprd.
