Naval Apprentice On Training Ship Cumberland Killed By Comrade. Newport, R. I., Jan. 18.—Following a list fight last Tuesday on board the United States training ship Cumber land at this port, H. A. Hartnett, aged 23 years, of Philadelphia, a naval apprentice, died today. D. M. Manning, 20 years old, of Middleton, N. Y., also an apprentice, is under arrest, pending investiga tion into Hartnett's death. Hartnett, who had been appointed an acting otfi.cer-at-arms, had trouble with Manning. When the day's duties were over the boys put on the gloves and began a battle, which, by agreement was to go It' rounds. With a crowd of 200 apprentices and seamen as witnesses, the fight was a hard one from the outset. In the eighth round Manning caught Hartnett on the jaw, sending the older boy to the deck. Hartnett took the count of 10, and when his seconds went to his side, they found, him unconscious. The first-aid meth ods usually employed in such emer gencies failed to revive him and he was removed to the sick ward. Today Hartnett died, without hav ing recovered consciousness. Death was due to a clot of blood on the brain. CORTELYOU WILL STICK. Secretary of Treasury Has No Idea of Resigning Present Job. New York. Jan. 15.—It became known today that interests identified with the re-organizaion of the Knickerbocker Trust company had considered the name of Secretary Cortelyou, among others, to take the presidency of that institution, and that an intimation, more or less pos itive in character, had been conveyed to the secretary within the past few days of the consideration of his name. One of the leading representatives of the re-organization was authority for the statement that the intimation had assumed a quite definite char acter, taking the form of a tender of the psesidency of the company. It was stated by this same authority that no response had been received, Lut that it was expected Mr. Cortel you had given out an authoritative announcement of his intention not to resign from the cabinet. In view of the latter announcement, it was as sumed that any tender or intimation of his coming to New York as pres ident of this company had been de finitely rejected. So seemingly authoritative were the reports, that circulated in the street this afternoon, that Mr. Cor telyou would resign to enter the Knickerbocker Trust company, that they persisted even after his denial was sent from Washington. A close friend of the secretary, who is in a position to know his intention, said tonight: "Mr. Cortelyou may or may _ not have been offered a position with a New York financial concern. Of that I am not prepared to speak; but _1 can say most emphatically that he is not going to accept any such offer.
