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.. Oct. 3.-The
twenty-round glove contest bewteen
Tom my White of Chicago and Johnny
Van Heest of Baltimore came off tonight
before the Terre Haute Athletic club. It
was one of the most scientific contests ever
seen, and White plainly outboxed Van
Heest. having him nearly knocked out
in several rounds. The contest was de

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.

The sugar estates have no money to pay

turned to this city, but be has not come
to explain his conduct while he was an
employee of tbe wheat speculators. He
has nothing to say in vindication of him
self. He has no excuse to offer for the
mutilation of the records which were in
bis possession. He has nothing to sny
about his sensational Might from the city
nor his connectiion with an affair wh eh
reflected credit upon nobody. Under tbe
protecting wing of his brother-in-law, S.
B. Carleton, ho refuses absolutely to be
seen. He appears to consider that silence
is a sufficient refuge utter the occurrence
of events which spoke very loudly for
themselves. When S. B. Carleton was
asked tonight to say something in vindi
cation of the good name of his young
broiber-in-law, he emphatically refused,
although Smith was in calling distance of
bun at the time.
Young Smith was bookkeeper for L.
W. McGlaufiin & Co., the big grain brok

wheat deal. Several months ago he dis
appeared . There were signs of a strug

lated. It was thougbt he had met with
foul play at first, hut investigation
showed that he had fled. The exact
amount of his shortage has never been
made public, and McGlaufiin & Co. have
said they did not intend to prosecute
him. One of the partners in McGlaullin
it Co. was Eugene Bresse, brother ol one
of the executors of the Fair estate. Bresse
has also disappeared and McGlaullin
makes some ugly charges against him.

pointment, and he is now making ar

said in regard to the appointment of Mr.

"I don't with to say anything more

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,

The miners Reject the Molasses Offered by

Sa.N' FRANCISCO. Oct, 3.—The min
eral land committee ot tho State Miners'
association today rejected the proposition
made by the Central Pacific on October
Ist for the reason that the proposition
does not clearly provide for the submis
sion to the mineral land commission of
any lands for examination. 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. Benjamin as
commissioner for the miners at a salary

But There Was No Explosion and Two San
Diego Boys' Parents Are Still
Happy
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 3.—George Bailey,
aged 13, ana James Johnson, aged 10,
were arreste d today for making a raid
upon a powder magazine wnich A. A.
Sparks maintains at the mouth of a can
yon on the outskirts < f the city. There
are stored thero twenty-tivo tons of ex
plosives. Tho boys broke off tbe padluck
on the door and gaining an entrance, car
ried off a great quantity of explosives, in
cluuing some sticks of nitro glycerine
and 5000 dynamite caps. These they
buried at various places. That the boys
and magazine were not blown to atoms is
a miracle, as they used a chisel and
hatchet to open the cans which contained
tbe explosives. Justice Hayes sentenced
tbe Bailey buy to a year in the county
jail.hut suspended sentence during good
behavior. The Johnson boy was allowed
to go free on account of extreme youth.

Significant Resolutions In Favor of

Hope Expressed That the Esstern Church

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. Father Timothy, ot tho Benedic
tine order, presented a report on the
work of the fraternity, sanctioned hv the
pope, with headquarters at St. Paul, for
the perpetual adoration of the blessed
sacrament.
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.

Billingsgate
J. W. Fuller of 627 North Hill street
has a tenant whom he considers very un
desirable, and yesterday in desperation
he applied to the district attorney for as
sistance in getting rid of: her. She is a
Mrs. Goodrich, at least that is the name
she gave to Mr. and Mrs. Fuller, and she
poses as an actress, but up to date a
thorough search has failed to discover
where she acts.
Mr. Fuller claims that the actress is in
arrears for four months rent and in ad
dition has disturbed the peace of himself
and wife by loud and tumultuous lan
guage, not to apeak of a heavy cannonade
of swearing. Wednesday night Mrs,
Goodiich, whose stage name is Blanche
Dixon, was sealed in'the parlor ' discuss
ing whether Shakespeare or Bacon wrote
Shakespeare, when the dissertation was
interrupted by Mrs. Fuller going out in
to tho front yard and chasing Mrs. Good
rich's pet dog from off the lawn, which
he had been chewing into fodder.
As soon as Blanone. who is nothing if
not versatile, saw what nad been done,

The first school report since vacation

J. U. 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. From this paper it ap
pears that in places where the flowers
were matted together thoy still retained
their color, ns well as a very faint odor.
The species to which tboy belonged is
now extinct, but a rose resembling them
lin several particulars is still grown in
Fjgypt and Abyssinia .
