Atlanta, Oct. 22.—At the Cleveland din ner President Cleveland spoke for a min ute congratulating Atlanta and the south on the exposition and expressing his pleasure at being here. He said: "I know not hardly how to reply to this and shall attempt to do but little more than return thanks for the^ kindly atten tion that has been shown me. Ever since my visit to your city I have been remind ed constantly that I was tn a country of hospitality. Nothing reminds me of this fact more Lilian now. Hospitality devel ops Into fraternity, and the hospitality as shown between the people of the north and south has developed a fraternity w hich knows no section. Northern hos pitality vies with you an northern hospi tality Is no less strong than yours. If this hospitality means union what else could unite a country in stronger bonds? It means devotion and attachment to the flag we all love. I feel then while I am al visitor to this community that I am among those who are determined, not to be outdone In anything that is patriotic. When I shall recall the Incident of this visit I am sure none shall find a warmer place than those present on this occasion, and before I close I wish to say that you have here a city for which fate has re served all that Is good and prosperous.” Governors Coffin of Connecticut, O'Fnr rall of Virginia and Stone of Mississippi were among the distinguished guests.

San Francisco, Oct. 22.—The defense closed In the Durant case this morning without introducing any further testi mony, and the prosecution immediately began to put in its testimony in rebuttal. This was damaging to Durant and in cluded evidence as to the notes of Dr. Cheney’s lecture on the afternoon of Blanche Lhmont’s disappearance, which he obtained of a fellow student. Five trustees of Emanuel Baptist church were called and denied that they had about the time of the murder given any instruc tions to Durant to repair the electrical apparatus of the church. They admitted that previous to that he had been re quested to make repairs, and in January had been asked to correct a defect in the apparatus corjiected with somie time bells, but none of them had spoken to Durant at any time about repairs con nected with the sunburners. Among the trustee® was C. G. Noble, uncle of Blanche Lament. The treasurer of the church said he had allowed Durant $450 for material used In repairing the elec trical api>aratus In January. Adolph Hobe. an old schoolmaster of Durant, testified that he had seen him at the ferry on the afternoon of April 12. the day of the Minnie Williams murder, with a young lady of Miss Williams’ stature and with a cape such as she wore at 5:05 o’clock. Duranl testified that he left the ferry before 5 o’clock. Some of the most im portant testimony of the trial was then introduced in the evidence of E. F. da rter, a fellow student of Durant’s. He DUKE Cigarettes MADE FROM High Grade Tobacco ** AND ABSOLUTELY PURE 12-30-»u-wed-frl-wky-ly testified that on the 10th of April he, with Durant, went into a room at the college and while he read his notes- of the lecture on April 13 Durant made notes in his note book. They discussed the points of the lecture. Durant did not read from his notes during the three-quarters of an hour in which they were engaged. ’ Prof. Thomas Price, the leading chemist of the city, was called as an expert and disposed of the mysterious shoe found in Pastor Gibson's study with a stain on the sole by saying he had found the stain to be a grease spot and not blood. Price went into details as to illuminating gas in use in this city. He said if Durant had inhaled it over the sun burners, as he said he did for four or five minutes, he would have been entirely overcome. Had he remained two minutes he would have been overcome. Charles Morrison, a reporter, testified that Durant had told him he went to thcl church on the afternoon of April 13 be tween 4 and 4:30. instead of 4:55, as Du rant had testified. J. S. Dunnlgan, another reporter, testi fied that he and Dr. Gilbert F. Graham had visited Durant in prison on April 20. He was requested by Durant to step aside while Graham talked privately with the defendant. Tt was Graham whom it is alleged Du rant asked for his notes. Graham talked with Durant about a: half or three quar tern of an hour. Dunnlgan said. Dr. Graham testified that he had such an interview with Durant in prison. Du rant had asked Dunnlgan to step to one side and then asked Graham If he would not lend him his notes of the lecture of April 12. He said he had notes and with the aid of Graham's he could prove an alibi. Durant had said in bis testimony that Graham joined with him in asking Dunnlgan to step to one side. Roth Gra ham and Dunnlgan disputed Durant as to this and Graham said Durant used the word "alibi,” although the defendant had said he did not at that time know the meaning of tli*e word. Dura,nt suggested as to the notes that Graham should leave them at his house or commit them to memory and come to the prison and re cite them to him. The prosecution expects to begin its ar gument this w-eek. We will make a special dis play of diamonds and watches for today only. H C. Abbott & Bros., 121 Twentieth street. 100 POEITICAB meetings. The Campaign in New York Is Getting Bed Hot. New York. Oct. 22.—New York was ablaze with political meetings from City Hall park to Kings bridge, the number reaching nearly 100.

All shades of politics were represented, from the mass meet ings of the democrats and republicans to the tall cart brigade of the Good Govern ment club. Chauncey M. Depew was the star at the big republican meeting and Perry Belmont at the democrats. The republicans opened the campaign at Car negie hall. The immense auditorium was crowded to its utmost capacity. Mr. Ed ward Lauterbach presided. After De pew had been heard Ex-Congressman Cjulgg took occasion to give Governor Morton a personal boom.

In addi tion to the meeting In the main hall there was a meeting of Germans in the base ment and overflow meetings were held outside of the wigwam for the benefit of those who could not gain entrance to the building. Charles A. Jackson, formerly a member of the Stale democracy, was chosen chairman of the meeting. Mr. Belknap closed his speech by say ing: "I am not pleading for free rum or free trade In intoxicants for an alcoholic city, but for the right of the voters in this county to manage their internal af fairs and their Sunday affairs In their own way. I am pleading tonight as the democracy Is pleading everywhere in the slate for a return of this city to a gov ernment by the mayor, aldermen and commonaliay, for a real legislative body created by a majority of the city voters, and riot by a counterfeit body as now."

FITZ IS EVICENTLY AFRAID For He Won’t Agree to Any Prop osition. 15 DENOUNCED BY CORBETT Who Says He Will Meet Him on October 1 and Fight Him for Nothing in Private. Hot Springs, Ark., Oct. 22.—There may be two or three more fights pulled off within the next two or three weeks, pro vided the decision of the supreme court is favorable, and that, as is expected, the governor will not further interfere, but there are less propsects of Corbett and Fitzsimmons meeting than there were twenty-four hours ago. Corbett came to town from his training quarters this evening'for the express purpose of meet ing Martin Julian, the representative of Fitzsimmons, and as the result of a stormy Interview, in which Julian reject ed every proposition made by the cham pion, the latter washed his hands of the whole business, to use his final expres sion, and left the conference room with the announcement that he would go out of training ut once. President Dan Stu art of the Florida Athletic club, who goes to Dallas in the morning to return on Sunday, said that the club had still under consideration the idea of matching Corbett with another man and the pull ing off of the two remaining tights. Julian also leaves in the morning for Corpus qhristi. His final announcement in the imbroglio is this: T will have Fitzsimmons here on the 31st ready to light, as provded i}>' the articles of agree ment. If the Flortda club is no longer connected with the affair and there is no purse in sight then we will be willing to light in a private place, to be selected by1 a Chicago man now here, for the side bet of $10,000. If Corbett will not consent to tills, then we will demand the forfeit of $2500, and as the people identified with the Florida club are supposed to be all honorable men we assume they will pay over promptly.” i urueu » nurnuu vibii ivrr u ***+•* precipitated by the Information convey ed to his training quarters at Sprnglake this afternoon by Manager Brady that Julian proposed to go away in the morn ing, leaving Corbett without any Idea where he was at. The champion was engaged in a boxing bout with Prof. John Donaldson, having earlier in the day badly flattened Steve O'Donnell’s nose by a chance blow, put ting that worthy hors de combat for the time being. On arriving at the Arling ton Corbett sent word to Julian that he desired to see him at once, and in about ten minutes Julian appeared in the man ager’s office, which was placed at the dis posal of the party, which comprised Corbett, Julian, Brady, Dan Stuart. Ven dig and representatives of the press, Corbett insisting that the latter be ad mitted. Corbett and Julian faced each other about 3 feet apart, and for several min utes neither said a word. Corbett was the (irst to break the silence. Then fol lowed a war of words In which Corbett offered to fight Fitz for nothing Ootober Corbett wound up by denouncing Fitz us a cur and the biggest coward on rec ord. At 10 o’clock tonight the situation took a decidedly new turn. After the meeting with Corbett Julian was in consultation for a considerable time with a myste rious individual who hag been around the Arlington hotel for several days, and who is now understood to be a represen tative) of Kck’ art & Co., the New' Orleans) people, whose dispatch to Julian have conveyed the impression that they rep resented the parties who were to put up Fitzsimmons' Side stake of $10,000, At. 10 o’clock Julian and this individual, who is understood to be, a rich Chicago sa loon keeper named Jack Dalton, entered the hotel and called for a carriage to take them to Spring I>ake. Julian was non-communicative concerning his mis sion, but from side remarks the impres sion was conveyed that a. purse of $10,000 would be hung up in the name of the citizens of Hot Springs for the men td meet on the 31st. Not a member of the citizens’ committee could be found to night who knew anything about the pro posed purse, and it is therefore assumed those behind Fitz have decided that inas much as the Florida club has called the mill for Friday of next week they are ready to take the matter absolutely out of the hands of the club and put up an Independent purse. Julian and Dalton returned at 12:50. They reported that Brady had refused to recognize Dalton as having authority to make any proposition and charged him with being an emisary from the Fitz camp, which he denied. Brady then stated that if the proposition was made through Mayor Waters, or any responsi ble Hot Springs citizens, it would be squarely considered, The party then left, with the understanding that Brady would come to town in the morning and confer with the mayor and citizens’ com mittee. BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT. Corbett's Habeas Corpus Case May Be De cided Si.t'.irday. Little Rock. Oct. 22.—The supreme court took up the Corbett habeas-corpus case here at 10 o’clock this morning and attorneys for Corbett presented their side of the case. Judge Holiingway is assist ing attorney-general Ktnsworthy. The governor prevailed on the supreme court to change the time for hearing the case from Wednesday morning to this morn ing. He also objected to a nolle pros be ing entered in the case as he wants the supreme court to say whether or not the fight law now on the statute books Is valid and sufficiently strong to enable the governor to prevent the prize fighting In this state. A decision will be rendered, It Is thought, by Saturday. Governor Clerk’s Bluff. Little Rock, Ark., Oct. 22.—Notwith standing the favorable news to the anti prize fighting element of the state. Gov ernor Clark is ready for another move ment In case the supreme court renders adverse to his side of the prize fight question. "Will you call a special session of the legislature?” he was asked. "I am not quite ready to say. If I find that I have not only the prize fight ers to fight, but the contingent includtng the courts of the state, I shall certainly convene the legislature as a last resort; but I still believe there is law enough In the state to take care of the state’s wel fare and the extraordinary session will be called only In extraordinary emer gency.” Preparation has been made and the legislature will be convened In a short time If necessary. Quinn’s Opinion of Maher. Hot Springs, Oct. 22—Joe Vendig re ceived this morning a dispatch from J. J.

Parte, Oot. 22.—Premier Ribot and Vice Admiral Beanard, minister of marine, were summoned to attend a meeting of tha budget committee of the chamber of deputies last evening. M. Rlbot support ed Admiral Besnard's urgent demand for a supplementary credit of 7,500,000 francs for the construction of new ships and ha val works. Admiral Besnard contended that It was Imperative that France should reserve her position In the Medit erranean and the north and place new vessels upon the distant naval stations. After the departure of Minister M. Ca mille Pelletan, reporter of the committee, proposed that 4,000,000 francs be appro priated on account of the new naval con struction programme. This proposal was rejected by the committee, which also rejected all other proposals for cred it for new vessels. M. Pelletan thereupon resigned, but his resignation has not yet been accepted.

The opposition newspapers de clare that the government will meet the chamber of deputies in the same manner in which a bankrupt would encounter his creditors.

Imports and Exports. The Imports of merchandise Into the United States for the nine months ending September 30,1895, were valued at $43, 052,276 more than the exports of mer chandise. For the same period the exports of gold were $44,350,343 more than the Imports. This export of gold more than paid the apparent adverse balance of trade, but besides this there was a net export of sliver valued at $30,682,496. This was applied In part payment of the Invisible balance of trade, which is made up.of freights on merchandise Im ported In foreign vessels, expenses of American tourists abroad, remittance by Immigrants to the old country. Inter est on American securities held by for eigners, etc. How much this Invisible balance of trade amounts to is unknown to any one, although some of the leading dealers In foreign exchange might estimate It with some approximation to accuracy. 'The lowest estimate that has been made In recent years of this invisible balance Is $100,000,000 annually. The estimate that has received more general acceptance recently Is $150,000,000. but some exchange dealers believe that It Is as much as $300,000,000 every year.
