Whether Sharkey Will Be
When He Has Polished Off Peter He
Will Tsekle Bob Fitzsim
mons Again
Associated Press Special Wire.
NEW TORK. June B.—Among those
who are considered to be authorities on
pugilistic matters ln this vicinity, there
is a great difference of opinion as to the
outcome of the heavyweight fistic con
test which la to take place tomorrow
night between Peter Maher and Thomas
Sharkey. Maher has three very decided
advantages. He Is three and one-quar
ter Inches taller, has a longer reach and
more ring experience and science than
the sailor man.
For the past seven weeks Sharkey has
made his preparation for tomorrow
night's contest at Behm'a hotel, near
New Dorp, Btaten island.
Never did a pugilist prepare for a
contest more earnestly,, carefully and
faithfully than Sharkey has under the
guidance and advice of Joe Choynski,
Tim McGrath and Tom Lansing. Cho
ynski has been very exacting and he has
found a willing pupil in the sailor.
Sharkey has gone through the ordeal
splendidly, and his trainers and spar
ring partners speak of him ln the high
est terms and are a unit In saying that
he will get through better than his coun
tryman tomorrow night.
This was the last day of hard work
for Tom. He got up this morning at 0
oclock and took a mile walk before
breakfast. After breakfast he took a
ten mile run and though the roads were
in bad condition he returned to his quar
ters in good condition. He rested a
while after this and then took a short
run along the beach. At 3 oclock he en
tered the gymnasium and for an hour
and a half he had not an Idle moment.
He punched the bag, skipped the rope,
used the wrist machine and dumbbells.
Then he boxed a few rounds with Cho
ynski and Lansing. He looked to be in
first-class condition and there was not
an extra ounce of flesh visible, while his
muscles stood out prominently.
When asked whether he would win,
he said: "Tell my friends ln California
and all over that I never felt better In
my life and am confident of winning. If
I win I will go after Bob Fitzslmmons'
again and I will meefchlm within three
months. If defeated I will have no ex
cuse to offer."
Choynski was equally confident of the
sailor's success, and said that he had
gone through his training much better
than had been anticipated.
"He now weighs 178 pounds," said Joe,
"and is as lit as It le possible for a man
to be. He will not do any more work un
til he meets Maher ln the ring, and I am
satisfied that he wIU win."
Dan Creedon and Kid McCoy have
been matched to fight at the Palace
Athletic club within the next six weeks
for s puree of 88000, the men to weigh 158
pounds. Each posted $1000 forfeit today.
At ths Prospect of Direct Negotiations
With Turkey
ATHENS, June B.—lt is said on good
authority that the powers are now try
ing to Induce Turkey to sign general
peace conditions, denning broad limits
within which Turkey and Greece should
afterwards settle details by direct nego
This news is regarded 1 at Athens with
dismay, as a breach of faith on the part
of the powers, and as leaving Greece to
the tender mercies of the sultan. It Is
believed by many good Judge* at Athens
that Greece may yet have to fight for
her very existence. Already there are
reports that the Turks have, advanced
in the Agrapha district, occupied several
villages, and are still advancing toward
. the town of Agrapha. Greece has pro
tested to the powers against this viola
tion of the armistice, and Cot. Tosa
, mados, the minister ot war, has gone to
The Greek newspapers publish the
statement, by Gem Miles, that the posi
tions at Thermopylae are impregnable.
LONDON, June B.—A dispatch to the
Times from Its correspondent at Con
stantinople eayv that the powers to
whom Greece has intrusted her inter
ests show no signs of yielding their
points ln the Turkish demand for the
annexation of Thessaly, the abolition of
the capitulations ln the case of Greek
subjects ln the Ottoman empire or an
exorbitant indemnity.
Killed Her Child
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., June B.—Mrs.
Jerry Holcomb, the young wife of a
West Franklin, Posey county, farmer,
sacrificed her four-year-old daughter
while laboring under the hallucination
that the Lord commanded her to do so
She has been regarded as partly Insane
for a year, but never regarded as dan
gerous. On Sunday, while the husband
was absent, she took her daughter Into
the bedroom and after a few momente
walked into the kitchen with the child's
head tn her hands and exhibited it to
the cook. Tbe latter, fled In terror.
When Holcomb arrived his wife was
bound with cords. A butcher knife as
shsrp as a rasor waa found concealed
In her dress. The child's head was sev
ered from the body just above the shoul
The Woman Lawyer
ANDERSON, Ind., June B.—Mrs. Hen
rietta Wilkte, of Elwood, has been ad
mltted to the Madison County Circuit
and Superior Court bars over the pro
test of Attorney John Beela of this olty,
who protested on the point of
unconstitutionality. The case has
been under advisement for some days
and this ruling Is a very important
precedent, as this is the first time the
question of legality of a woman prac
ticing law has ever been brought up ln
this State. The protest was based on
several sections, of which the principal
one was th* requirement of an attorney
to be a voter In good standing. Helen
Oougar and other women who are cham
pioning woman's rights have been en-;
couraglng Mrs. Wtlkle. She argued her'
esse splendidly.
Objected to Lickings
H. Lawson, a Methodist divine, was shot
and instantly killed today by his 15
--year-old son, Isbam. The father whipped
the boy Sunday for some slight offense,
and he left home. The punishment
rankled in the little fellow's heart and
he returned home today, and, finding his
fiather in a cornfield, slipped up behind
him and blew his head from hie should
ers with a shotgun. The murderer es

The Hew Board of Eire Underwriters
Has Very Serious Trouble on
His Hands
SAN FRANCISCO, June B.—When the
new compact between the fire Insurance
writers on the Pacific coast was formed
a few weeks ago it was thought that
troubles which have besieged the in
surance world for the last year or so
were almost over, but the sub-agents of
the city of Stockton refused to agree to
a cut of 26 per cent in their commissions
and the trouble has broken out afresh.
The board of underwritera have Issued
an ultimatum to the effect that a.l
country agents must sign an agreement
to the cut or give up the business.
The insurance compact has selected
Stockton as the place to begin its battle
against a league of Insurance men whicn
exists ln various cities, of California, In
cluding Stockton, Sacramento and San
Jose. The league was organized to re
sist what the insurance agents consldei
unjust action on the part of the board.
A meeting of the Stockton Insurance
men will be held at once to decide upon
their action.
SAN FRANCISCO, June B.—The news
from Stockton in relation to the refusal
of insurance agents to sign the compact
agreement is causing considerable un
easiness. It is the most serious trouble
the new board of fire underwriters has
encountered since Its organization.
When the board was formed and rates
were advanced the compact decided to
cut the commissions of agents to 20 per
cent for San Francisco, Oakland, Ala
meda and Portland, and IE per cent for
all other towns. The expectation was
that the agents would make pretty
much the same income on the higher
rates as they had made at 26 per cent
and 80 per cent on cut rates. Still there
was behind the reduction an intention tv
punish the interior towns for the ex
ception ln favor of Portland, which was
made solely because that city had form
ed a local board and had not participat
ed ln the slaughter of rates.
Even the local City agents demurred at
signing this agreement and thus far but
fifty signatures have been obtained. In
the meanwhile the state board, as It Is
called, has the matter of the action of
city agents outside of San Francisco In
regard to the agreement under consid
eration. The time within which all the
agreements must be signed is June 10th,
and until then the compact will take nc
action tn the matter.
The story which was current yester
day afternoon that the Thurlnga had re
signed from the board, was denied em
phatically by Manager Hall.

Under Consideration for
Next Spring
Racing Results at Denver and Graves
end—Philadelphia Team Play
ing Cricket at Oxford
Associated Press Special Wire.
ciflo Coast Jockey club Erectors are try
ing; to arrange an International handi
cap to be decided at Ingleelde next
spring. In all likelihood a $20,000 o:
$30,000 purse will be offered if the direct
ors can bring together the best of Amer
ican, Australian, Irish and English
thoroughbreds. It is a mooted question
as to which of the three countries pro
duces the best race horses.
For an international event San Fran
cisco is well situated. Australian horses
can be shipped here easily, and so can
English and eastern steeds.
President Henry J. Crocker, in speak
ing of the matter, said that efforts were
being made to arrange such a race.
"We have sent communications to
Australian racing men and our plans
are now known to them," he said.
"Probably we shall send an agent to
Melbourne to personally interview the
owners of the great handicap horses
We shall proceed the same way in Eng
land and Ireland. In, this country Ido
not think we will have any trouble in
securing the entries of the cream of the
handicap division. It will be a great
race if we can bring It about."

The Fhlladelphlans Flavins; Cricket
at Oxford
OXFORD, Eng., June B.—A cold rain
delayedi the beginning of today's play
between the American and Oxford crick
eters until 8 oclock. In spite of the
heavy rainfall the wlnd'drled the ground
rapidly, and the weather wae less cold
than yesterday.
At 2:30 p. m. rain was falling, and
Captains Cunliffe and Paterson, after
a conference, agreed to stop the game.
The score stood: Philadelphia, 1«3 for
seven wickets, with Lester 72 and King
0, both not out. Play will be.resumed
at noon tomorrow. The Oxford total i*
Lester'* flne stand wee universally ap
proved by the critics, who regard the
Ptriladelphiane and the Oxfordlans as
being much alike—good batters and
mediocre bowlers.
Da addition to Lester and King, who
are not out, tbe Americans have Clark
and Cregar to send to the bat tomorrow.
And Then Threatened to Kill Hie
James Temple, who has been doing; a
thriving business the past winter dis
pensing a bed and breakfast to the weary
for five cents at the Lulu shelter, 862
West First street, le ln a peck of trouble.
A few day* ago he got drunk and was
arrested. Yesterday Justice Owens
fined him 810. He did) not have an X.
and asked to be allowed to do a Uttlt
hustling around town- to raise enough
money to pay the fine, and thus keefc out
of the chain gang. He was out all after
noon, and did the best he could, but
no one pitied! him enough to lend him
any money.
When he returned ln the evening to
the police station ln company with an
officer, disheartened and weary, another
load was added to his burden. During
the day his wife had come to the police
court and lodged a complaint again*:
him for making threats to kill her while
het was drunk. He was brought up on
this charge, and his bond was fixed at
$1000. He was taken to jail to serve
out his ten day sentence, and it is doubt
ful if he gets out in a hurry.
Exeroises Last Evening in the Medi
cal College—Flowers, Addresses,
Diplomas and Music
When Dr. D. C. Barber went north In
April, 1895, and investigated the sub
ject of training schools and trained
nurses, he had only a vague hope that
LO9 Angeles should one day have one
of her own, with its alumnae of Flor
ence Nightingales. When he came back
from San- Francisco, Dr. Barber had
convictions, of which he had the courage
and for which he proposed' to fight.
With the efficient aid of Mrs. Fred T.
Griffith and one or two other intelli
gent and able coadjutors, Dr. Barber
proceeded to interview the board' of su
pervisors early and often, until that au
gust body was persudad to make the trl
at of a training class for nurses ln> the
county hospital, and the graduating ex -
ercises which were held last evening in
the medical college on Buena Vista
street of the first senior class was the
The experiment has proved an un
qualified success from the start; there
has been no additional experse attend
ing It, and facluty, supervisors and
nurses were all active factors ln a de
lightful' interchange of courtesies and
compliments, which was enjoyed by an
appreciative audience that quite filled
the amphitheater at the college building
last evening.
The decorations were gold andi white,
the class colors, and the class motto,
"Semper Fidells," was suspended' above
the heads of the class. Dr. Walter
Llndley presided, and introduced first
the Rev. A. S. Clark, who offered a
prayer; then Dr. Jay H. Utley, who
gave the opening address on behalf of
the class. Dr. Utley first thanked the
board of supervisors, through whose ef
forts and co-operation the school had
become possible, and then he addresser*,
the graduating class, who were a.i
garbed in their dainty uniform of blue
gown and white apron, cap and collar.
Dr. Utley presented his-congratulations
to the class, andi spoke some kindly
words of warning, of advice, of encour
agement for the future endeavor, and
of unstinted praise and commendation
for past accomplishment.
Hon. E. S. Field made an address on
behalf of the board of supervisors, Mrs.
Murray on behalf of the board of man
agers, also addressed the class, and then
Dr. Llndley presented them to Mrs. T.
B. Brown, president of the board of
managers, who conferred the diplomas.
Dr. Joseph Kurtz was also called upon
for a speech, and in all were cordial ex
pressions of congratulation and en
couragement; and the exercises closed
with a benediction by Rev. A. S. Clarke.
There were quantities of beautiful
flowers presented to the graduates, some
of which were from the juniors of the
training school, who acted as ushers.
Between the addresses there was music
by a string orchestra, and the evening
was as a whole and ln detail an unqual
ified success. Tho class of '97 Is as fol
lows: Miss Rebecca Alberts, Tehachepi,
Cal.; Miss Elizabeth Uergher. Hanovei,

A Set Screw Caught in His Sleeve and

His Neck and Chest
Raymond Wetzel, a young; man em
ployed in the Southern Pacific machine

last night and killed. The accident hap

Wetzel, who Is an apprentice ln the
shop, was working at the drill when his
sleeve caught on the point of the screw.
He attempted to free himself, but was
unable to do so. The screw held' to his
coat sleeve and kept drawing him to
ward it. Finally he was drawn slowly
but powerfully against the upright bar.
Expecting every second that his coat
would give way and free him, the young
man made no outcry, and other em
ployes near knew nothing of the acci
dent until afterward. Finally the grip
around his chest and neck tightened,
and) he was slowly squeezed to death.
