Cdrbett-Fitrsimmons light take place in San Mateo county under too auspices of the Colma Athletic club. Months ago some prominent San Fran cisco sporting men got the officials in San Mateo county to allow prize righting. A strong undercurrent of influence was brought to bear on those officials, and the several figlus which have been held at Colma would not justify the amount of pressure which was put in motion to get the fiancbise. It is openly stated that the prize fight ing permit at Colma was obtained with a view of getting some big fight, tbe Oorßett-Fltzsimmons contest preferred. Dan Stuart, the manager ot tbe fight, said today that he had three places in view, two of whicl) he named as Mexico end the Indian territory. The third place be omitted to mention. It is believed that he had California in mind. WASHINGTON, (Jet. 3. —The treaties end laws of tbe United States with tho Indians of the five ci/ilized tribes are be irg examined on the announcement that tbe Corbett-Fitzsimmons tight will take place in the Indian territory. Under the provisions It is held that the govern ment can keep out the prize lighters un less the Indians agree to their entrance. Whether the federal government can, even if the Indians consent, prevent the tight is not quite so clear, and some per sons who hare examined tbe law claim that the tight can be brought about with out the violation of law by the Florida Athletic club leasing a part of tbe Indian lands. A'fuKA. I. T., Oct. 3.-The Choctaws here are sanguine that the council which meets at Tuskshoma on next Monday will pass a bill similar to the one passed by tho Texas legislature yesterday. Governor Wardner is a full-blood Choc taw Indian and his opposition to tbe fight will rival that of even Governor Culnerson. The statutes of Arkansas of 18S4 are in force in this country end they •re silent so far us they pertain to prize righting and there is nothing in the Fed eral statute books which would warrant the marshal to take a hand to prevent the tignt coming off. Tbe attorney-gen eral has aignitied his willingness to call out the militia to the assistance of tbe Choctaw tribe if requested to do so. It is not believeu that the council hss the authority to call upon the United States government to prevent the light in the absenoe of a law prohibiting it on the statute books ot the Choctaw nation. Unless tbe bill is passed there is nothing here to prevent tho mill being pulled oft. If it were possiole for the Florida Ath letic club to get permission of the coun cil then the Federal authorities would not interfere, even if requested to do so by Governor Gardner. A representative of Dan Stuart was here today and the general . impression is that an attempt will he mndo to secure a place two miles below here on Boggy creek tor the scene of the contest, it is about three hours' run from Dallas to this place. Sufficient lumber can be bad to build an inclosure. DALLAS. Tex., Oct. 3. —A large num ber ot propositions were received over the wires by Dan Stuart today by parties who desire to have tne championship contest nulled off in their respective cities or states. It is understood that Joseph Ven dig of New York and other interested parties have conferred and agreed on a place of meeting for the big fellows and the line of action to be pursued. COBPUB CHRIST I, Tex., Oct. 3.— When the Associated Press correspondent announced the legislature's nation of yes terday to Fitzsinimons he did not show much surprise. "It is only part of tbe game of Corbett and his gang," he said. "He selected Texas for the battle ground beciiuse he thought tbe light emild not oome off here. He will have to light me sooner or later or get out of the ring." The training quarters are finisned and Fitzsinimons Is working just as hard as if he was going to fight Corbett tomorrow. CITY OF MEXICO. Oct. 3. —President Diaz has given perempto-y orders that the Corbett-Fitzsimmons light sball not occur on Mexican soil. CHICAGO, Oct. :'.. — President Dan 6tuart wired the Associated Pres i from Dallas tonight as follows: "Everything looks favorable for ar rangements being completed within twenty-four hours. At present no one kiifowt) which way my fane is turned, but when I give the location I am certain that I have it clinched." AKDMOIiE. I. T.. Oct. 3.—Active efforts arc being made by the people of this place to have tbe Corbett-Fitzsim mona light take place. The best legal talent in tbe city concur in the opinion that there is no legal impediment in the way of tb,e pnysical culture contest tak ing place here, as the Arkansas state rules in vogue here make prize fighting a misJemeanor, or assault and battery, made pu cashable by a $200 line. Tbe Gnlf. Colorado and Santa Fe railroad has offered to- transport the lumber for tho large amphitheater from Dallas to Ard more free of charge. In Had Sates Marshal Stowe says: *'I am personally opposed to the fight com ing off on Indian soil, and can only obey orders as I shall receive them from tbe department at Washington tv prevent it.**" • Jurlge Gilgore s.-,i,!: "I have not made an extended investigation of the ques tion, hut I feel sale in stating that the criminal laws in force here afford tbo olfic'isls full authority to prevent the light in tho terriotry. My determination is to pretnt it in this district, and if we have the proper backing we will prevent it." United States Attorney Crime said: "I fully investigated trie question of prize rights and pugilistic encounters, and find it a violation of the law. There is ample authority to prevent the mill taking place in tho CLick;ts.:<v nation." Little Fellows May Fight TKRRK HAUTE. Intl..

But Sixteen HundreJ Operators Are Thrown Out ot Employment AMOdnted Prats Special Wire. WARREN, R. 1., Oct. 4.—One of the largest fires that ever occurred in South eastern New England broke out in one of the mills of the Warren Manufacturing company, situated about an eighth of a mile from the center of town, Just after midnight tonigbt. and before it was under control it had s,vept through three large cotton mills. Two warehouses, small sheds, freight cars and other property were burned, causing a loss which is estimated at more than a million dollars. The fire started in the wash room near the engine room of No 1 mill, and spread with grjst rapidity through the building. Within an hour after the blazo was discovered the tlames were roaring tnrough all three mills. A carload of tar and another of coat standing on a track in tbe mill yard, be coming ignited, furnished admirable food tor tbe lire in its sweep through tho great plant. The beat was insufferable and soon it was impossible to get within *JOO feet of the buildings. At 1 o'lcock the tiames were threatening two warehouses containing $100,000 worth of sea island cotton and completed sheetings. At 1:30 tbe lire caught anew ana soon became a roaring furnace. A tew minutes later the flames jumped from these buildings to the adjoining lumber of R. A. Martin and bis entire stock of coal, wood and dressed lumher were food for tbe tire. Shortly before 1 o clod: the walls of two of the mills fell in and tbe dwelling bouse occupied by the operatives also caught tire, so that it seemed to be spreading in two direction!. liy tne moat persistent and arduous efforts, however, tho firemen gained con trol of the conflagration, but all that was left of tbe big factories, warehouses and tenements was a blazing pile of ruins. The entiio contents of the plants were destroyed, with the exception of fifty bales of cotton from the warehous v, which, after taking tire, dropped into tho water and were carried down the bay a blazing mass, endangering vessels at anchor. Several persons in the crowd of spec tators w»re injured by flying ([bricks, but none were seriously hurt. When the roof of the warehouse fell four Provi deuce firemen were cautrht. They es caped by crawling down tne water pipe amL then jumping a distance of seven teen feet. Two were slightiy injured. The losses are estimated as follow*: Warehouse and factories, 1800.000! ma- 1 terial. $300.Out); lumber yards, $15,000; tenements. $10,000; total, $1,1*25,000. The local tiro service was ridiculously inadequate. The Warren Manufacturing company is one of the largest cotton roanu'act unng corporntiors in the country. John Water man of Warren is the principal owner ami Warren ami Providence people are the heaviest stockholders. The tnree mills destroyed were each 700 feet long, live stories in height and oOOtallied in all 87,000 iplndles. Sixteen hundred op eratives. Comprising nearly all of the working force of ihe town, were em ployed. The principal means of support in the town is thus taken away. It is said the plant will be rebuilt. The insurance of the whole of the com pany's porprrty amounts to $1,9*0,000.

Complaints Prom Los Angeles SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 3.—The board of railroad commissioners today listened to the reading of several complaints against excessive freight rates and pas senger faros. Ono matter which was given considerable attention was the complaint of B. E. Edwards of Los An geles, who prays for an immediate read justment of the local passenger rates now in vogue on tbe Atlantic and racilic west of The Needles. In a recent communica tion to the board Mr. lid wards called at tention to the fact that tbe local rates ap plying bewteen Mojnve and The Needlos are greatly m excess of tbe rates charged by the Southern Pacilie over the Yuma desert, where the conditions and circum stances tire alleged to be similar. K. H. Wado, general manage.- of the Southern California railway, to whom was referred tho first communication of Mr. Edwards, replied to the letter by as citing that tho Atlantic and Paoitic was constructed and is now beng operated un der the direction of the nationel gov ernment: that it reports to the secretary of the interior, and is therefore not within the jurisdiction of tbe railroad Commissioners, He further stated that the reports made to the commission were made merely as an act of courtesy, and as for tho rates charged, declared that the road had the right to charge 10 cents a mile instead of (I cents if it so desired. Commissoner Stanton, in commenting on the matter, denied ttiat the Atlantic and Pacific had the right to cha'ge 10 cents a mile tor passenger fares across the Mojave desert, lie thought that Mr. Wade's assertion that the road "has the right, with the approval of your honor able body,of charging 10 cn!s per mile," was worded in a manner that wns calcu lated to deceive, The road would have the right, with the approval of the com mission, to charge 10 cents a mile, but it has not yet obtained the approval of t he com mission. This brought up the more important matter of lhe committee's jurisdiction over the Atiactio and Pacific, and it was decided to obnin the opinion of the at torney general on that point before pro ceeding with the regulation of charges. Freight Rate Troubles CHICAGO, Oct. 8. —Utter failure at tended the efforts of the executive officers of the westorn roads today to secure an agreement for the restoration and main tenance of freight rates. Tho meeting was unable to agree on anything. There was only a partial representation of the roads, and it was deemed inexpedient by those present to attempt to do anything i until a full attendance could be secured. One of the absentees was the Missouri, Kansas and Texas, and the Missouri Pa cific said it would not he a parly to any agreement to which that road was not al- S3 a party. Under these conditions noth ing remained for the meeting but to ad > lourn. It did so with tbe understanding ' ihst Chairman Mirtgley should use his ■ utmost endeavors to bring about a gen i eral understanding among th« roads, i and learn from tuein wnether it will be 0 nvenient for them all to attend.

The propo sition was characterized as a molasses to catch Hies. The committee, however, will negotiate with the company accord ing to its proposition submitted Septem ber 17th. That there is vol a chance of coming to an understanding was shown by tbe adoption of resolutions by tho company appointing li. H.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 3.—The Eucharist Roman Catholic church completed its session.tonight.with a procession leu by Cardinal Gibbons and including most of tho archbishops, Dlshops and dignitaries of the American hierarchy through tbe Catholic university grounds to .the steps ot McMahon hall, where the cardinal pronounced the benediction, it was an imposing demonstration, being a fitting close of tho most notable gathering of clergy in tbe history of the church. Pri or to the procession tbe business of tile congress was concluded by.the passage ol a resolution embodying the results ac complished. A signilicant feature of the resolution was its strong statement in fa vor of Sunday observance ns a practical means of sanctifying the Holy Eucharist. The resolution also reallirmed full adher ence to the declarations of the third ecu menical conference at Boston The two sessions during the day wero occupied with tho reading of papers con cerning the Eucharist. The paper of Rev. Joseph Yazbeck, tho Armenian mis sionary, attracted marked attention, ow ing to the Turkish Armenian riots re ported by the Associated Press and the efforts of Pope Leo 10 return tbe east ern church to papal authority. Rev.Yaz beck said that ot tbo threo million Ar menians, only about 100,000 wero allowed to attend the holy church He doubted whether it would be possi ble" to bring back the princes and patri archs ot the east. Bui he pointed out that tho separation was formal to a large extent, tho only features being that the eastern church did not acknowledge the supremacy of tho pope. It had the Cath olic mass' and ceremony. Hundreds of Armenians had said to him, "There is 110 real difference Detween us; let the shepherds agree and we will follow" He closed with an eloquent exhorta tion that the eastern church might be brought back before Pops Leo's death in order that tbe pontiff's great wish might bo accomplished. Alter reading tbe paper Rev. Yazbeck said to a representative of the Associated Press that he believed the riots in Con stantinople resulted from tho desire to arouse (he iiritish to action. British war ships were now in the Bjspborus and the reports of the outrages would doubtless stimulate and urge England to decisive action. He said that the massacre of Armenians had been very grent, rivaling to some extent the massacres of Syrians by the Turks, where the number of killed reached thirty thousand. liishop Horsttnan of Cleveland pre sented the report of the supervisors of the Tabernacio society,showing the extensive work done by women in preparing vest ments aand altar futniture. Bishop Kceno maoe a similar report showing the work of Washington women in the same direc tion.

Rev. Walter Elliott of New York read the resolutions agreed on. Resolutions of compliment and thanks to the Catholic university were passed and the congress closed with the procession through tbe university grounds. SWORE LIKE A TROOPER . firs.

Henry of this place killed yester day the mate ot the American condor he killed last Apiil in the mountains north of this place about twenty miles. This gives him a pair of the birds, each meas uring ten feet, ami it is said that he is the only man on the coast who has a pair. He Killed the bird with a Win chester a thousand yards from whore she was sitting on her nest, tho ball piercing hor heart. It took an hour's journey and a faithful dog to iind the bird aftor he bad killed her. From the fact of her sitting on a nest, he has come to the conclusion that the bird was sitting on an egg or two, and a search has been instituted to ascertain if the supposition is correct. The place of tho nest is an almost inaccessible crevice in the mountufns, and tho search ing party will have to be lowered at least 800 feet by ropes to the spot, but they think the. risk worth Inking, for tlio value of a condor's egg •« $1500.

Roses in a Tomb 5,000 Years Old Flinders Petrie, the archaeologist, while excavating union"* some ancient Egyptian tornoa found a wreath of roses which had been bound into n garland and buried with the dead thousands of years ago. M. Urepin, the botanist and mioroscopist, made a careftd examination of this queer tind and prepared a paper on it, which be read before the Royal so ciety of Belgium.
