CONSTANTINOPLE, Aug. II.-The Im?
perial troops have occupied Krushevo, 23
miles north of Monastlr, which wtip re?
cently seized by the Insurgents. A forco
of four thousand troops beselged the place
nnd bombarded It with artillery. The

proceeding outside the, town.
, Consular advices from Monastlr and
Sal?nica endorse the belief that any overt
movement In those towns on the part of
the revolutionary committees will lend
to a massacre of the Bulgarian Inhabi?
tants by the Mussulmans,

particulars 9t a number of encounter?

Jett Heard Verdict With Apparent In

With Tears?First Conviction
for Twenty-Seven Killings.
(By Associated Press.)
CYNTHIANA, KY., August 14.?The
Jury In the case of Curtis Jett and Thomas
White, charged with the assassination of
James B. Marcum. at Jackson, Ky., re-,
turned a verdict of guilty to-day, fixing
the punishment of each at life Imprison?
ment. The verdict was returned at a
time when there were but f,ew persone
in tho court-room. The only attorney
present was County Attorney Webster.
Jett received the verdict with compar?
ativo Indifference and calmness. White,
who has been apparently under a severe
strain during tho trial, flushed up and
his eyes filled with tears. Tho verdict
occasioned little surprise.
The only question which caused the de?
lay. It Is said, was whether to make the
?punishment death or life Imprisonment.
Attorneys Blanton and Golden, for the
defense, were absent when tho jury cnme
into court, and Judge Osborne sent for
them and told them to make tholr motion
for a new trial. The motion wns there?
upon filed, and the court took It under
When It was announced thnt the Jury
had com? out a crowd gatbored nt the
court-room, hut It was quiet nnd orderly,
nil the mountain men hnvlng gone to their
homes. Colonel Byrd, who prosecuted tho
prisoners, said ho was disappointed In
the case, ns lie hnd hoped for a verdict
fixing the death penalty.
The ens? has been on trial almost three
weeks, having been begun July 27th. At
the first trini at Jackson the jury disa?
greed, and It Is believed that the verdict
to-day wns a compromise with a Juror
opposed to capital punishment.
The friends of Captain B. L. Ewen nnd
other witnesses for the prosecution, who
have suffered greatly nnd were living in
fear of their lives, are greatly relieved.
There have been twenty-seven lives lost
within the past two years in th? Cockrlll
Hargls feud In Breathltt county, and this
Is the first conviction. No arrests or In?
dictment? had been made until last May,
when the troops were ordered to Jackson
In order to protect the grand Jury, and
afterwnrds the trial Jury and witnesses.
Jett Is still under Indictment charged
with killing Town Marshal Cockrlll.
Jett said last night the rope had never
been made with which to hang him, but
ho made no remarks to-day.

NEW CASTLE, VA., Auguot 14.?During
a trip to the beautiful falls near here on
Wednesday by the guests from the hotel
at Bel Air, great excitement was caused
by the narrow escape of little Miss
Laura Catesby Jones, who slipped Into
the surging falls and fell thirty feot Into
a pool. She had sunk twice and would
have certainly been drowned but for the
heroic efforts of Mr. Hubard Floyd and
Albert Grant, who rushed down the slip?
pery rocks and jumped in the pool nt tlio
risk of their lives and rescued the young
lady from a terrible death.
She was uncousclous when picked up,
but is now perfectly well, as she did not
even get a scratch.
To those who have seen the place where
she fell her escape seems miraculous.

MECHANICS' PAVILION, SAN FRAN?
CISCO?, CAL., August 14.?James J. Jet
fries, champion heavy-wolght of th?
world, played with Jim Corbett for nine
rounds am a half to-night, and then
Corbett's seconds motioned to Referee
Oraney to stop tho fight in order to save,
their man from needless punishment. The
end came ehortly after the beginning o?
toh tenth round, -when Jeffries planted
one of his terrific left swings on Corbetfe
stomach. The man who conquered John
L. Sullivan dropped to the floor In agony,
and the memorable scene at Carson City,
when Bob Fitz-immous 'landed his solar
plexus blow, was almost duplicated. This
time, however, Corbett struggled to hla
feet and again faced his gigantlo adver?
sary. With hardly a^ moment's hesitation
Jeffries swung his right, and again landed
on Corbett's stomach. Jim dropped to
the floor, and then It was that Tommy
Ryan, seeing that It was all over, motioned
to Refereo Granoy to stop the punish?
The fight to-night demonstrated beyond
all doubt that Jeffries stands alone In hie
class. He showed remarkable Improve?
ment In both speed and skill. Corhctt
during the first, part of tho fight was al?
most outpointed, and the few blows that
he landed on Jeffries wore apparently
without sting. Jeffries was never in Wet
tor condition. Ho looked lighter thanusual
nnd tho way he maved about on his feet
and the frequency with which he coun?
tered Corbett's leads astonished every?
Corbett, In comparison with the big man
opposed to him, looked very light, but
was really heavier than ever before. He
appoared-to havo lost some of his old
time speed and! skill during the early part
of the fight, but this may have been due
to Jeffries' marvelous Improvement. Cor?
bett's physical condition appeared to be
all that he had claimed for It. He stood
may of Jeffries' terrific blows without
wincing, and came back swinging .lefts
and rights and landing frequently, but
his blows hardly stung. Jeffries was not
only stronger, faster and cleverer than
ever before, but he usedi his head to bet?
ter purpose, aand although Corbett hit
him hard enough to hurt an ordinary
man, Jeffries bored right In without no?
ticing tho blows and delivered telling hits,
which materially helpd In deciding the
result ot tho fight.
At first Corbett was very cautious and
apparently was out-pointed by Jeffries,
but later In tho tight he warmed up and
showed some of his old-time cleverness.
From tho first, however. It was general?
ly regarded ns a hopeless case for Cor
bott. Ho mado a gallant fight, but he
never stood a show to win.
After the right was over Corbett quick?
ly recovered,', wnlked over to Jeffries and
shook him warmly by the hand. He
said: "Jim, you beat me fairly. You
stand alone; no one can touch you."
Referee Eddlo Granley said after the
fight that It was a great heavy-weight
contest. "Corbett was very clever, but
Jeffries was almost equally so and_ show?
ed marvelous improvement. He' prac
tlonlly outboxed Corbett during the fight,
with tho exception of the eighth and
ninth rounds. Every blow that he land?
ed told, and his superior weight and
strength wns bound to wlti at the end."
Timekeeper George Plartlng stated that
the blowa that won the fight were a left
to tho stomach, followed by a right to the
snmo njaeo as soon a.s Corbett arose to his
feet after taking the count of sine.
Corbett said after the fight: "I did my
best and lost. I fought the best I knew.
Jeffries was too big for me, and he Is the
best man In the world. If the public Is
satisfied with my fight, I am. I nm glad
to give Jeffries all the credit that It' his
due. I have no personal feeling In the
matter. I have fought my last tight."
Hght by Rounds.
Round 1?They came together In the
center, Jeffries feinting and t'orbett step?
ping lively. Jeffries swung left over Jim's
hend. Jim cjime in quickly to a clinch
and they were very slow nhout breaking.
Jeffries put light left to Jim's eye and
they refu?id to break. Jim put right over
tho heart and clinched. Corbett stayed
close In and put hard short arm rights
on the body. They were exceedingly care?
ful In the break. Jeffries forced his man
across the ring and put left lightly on the
bodv. It was noticeli that Corbett did
very fast work, hut stayed close and put
two rights solidly over the heart. Jef?
fries missed right for the body, bul put It
on the chest lightly. As they broke Cor?
bett quickly stepped and put his right
to the heart. Jeffries laughingly remark?
ed: "Ah." Tho first round indicated that
Jeffries is very fast and that Corbett did
not do any fancy work.
Round 2?Jeffries came up quickly,
missed left for the head, and they cam?
to a clinch. -They would not bieik, Jim
claiming Jeffries was holding. In the
break Jeffries swung left on hack of the
head lightly. Corbett had failed thus
fnr to land a single left hand blow.
Ho attempted It at this stage, but was
too close In. Jeffries forced him to the
ropes, coming dangerously near th? Jaw
with a left honk. They Immediately
came Into a clinch, In the break, of which
Corbett hooked u ?ma?hing left to the
Jaw. Corbett sent In left and right to
body, but got left hook on the head.
Jeffries enme mi quickly, but Corbett
clinched. Corbett ?em in a peculiar right
iiaud hait uppercut for the Jaw, but wm
