STUART ADMITS HIS FAILURE All Fights but the Big One Are Officially- Declared Off. SPORTS ARE DISGUSTED. Have Given Up Hope of Seeing a Contest Between Maher and Fitzsimmons. JULIAN AGAIN QUIBBLING. Refuses to Enter Into a Conference to Arrange for a Meeting on Friday. EL PASO, Texas, Feb. 16.— Dan Stuart announced to the crowd of correspondents and sports in his office at 8 o'clock to-night that the Everhardt-Leeds, Walcott-Bright Eyes, MarshaJl-Dixon and Barry-Murphy contests were officially declared off, and that he would pay the forfeit of $500 on each contest to-morrow. The announce ment was not coupled with any reasons for this step, but later it was stated in Stuart's behalf by one of his associates that as one of the fights was already past due and another was scheduled to-morrow he regarded it useless to carry out the lesser features of the carnival so long as the big fight was undecided, and more over, as the little fellows were beginning to "kick," the conclusion had been reached to sponge off the slate, beginning with the second line. It is now. more likely than ever that the first line also will be wiped off to-morrow. Some complications between the fight ers are likely to arise as a result of the abandonment. Leeds and Everhardt, who were to have fought on Tuesday, should weigh in to-morrow under forfeit of $1000. Everhardt, however, recognizing several days ago that the game was up, has been taking things easy and gaining flesh, with the result that he tips the beam to-night at 140, or eight pounds over weight. Cap tain G!ori, Leeds' backer, insists, however, that the weighing-in shall take place, and says he will claim the forfeit if Everhardt fails to appear or if he is over weight. The consensus of opinion among the ex pert sports remaining here is that the rights, having been declared off in advance of the weighing-in, Glori's position is un tenable. The question of fight or no fight, so .far as the big 'uns are concerned, has been put off for one more day. After having dragged Maher's representatives down from Las Cruees to-day Martin Julian re fused to go into conference, contenting himself with the oft-»epeated statement of "We will make known our position to morrow," as for two weeks before the Ozark fiasco he chirruped. "We will be in Hot Springs on October 31." Fitzsimmons privately expressed him self this morning to the effect that he re garded the "jig" as "up," and this is taken as forecasting his attitude for to morrow. Both Dan Stuart and Maher, the latter having been telegraphed for to night, will have something to say on the question of forfeit, and the chances are that the Irishman will not find himself able to carry things his own way. Julian and Fitzsimmons came across from Juarez this morning for the purpose of meeting the Maher people. The con ference had been set for noon, but the train . from . Las Cruees was three hours late, and after hanging about for a while the pair went back to their quarters. When "Buck" Connelly, who was accompanied by Joe Wolcott, also of Pittsburg, arrived at 3 o'clock the : crowd was on the way to the bullfight and headquarters were deserted. They at once started for Juarez in a fast rig, and en countered Julian just as he was entering the amphitheater. In reply to Connelly's request for a conference in the evening at headquarters, with the promoters and cor respondents as auditors, the brother-in-law manager reported that Fitzsimmons had a dinner party for 6 o'clock, and that it would not be possible for either of them to come to town until to-morrow morning. Connelly asked if • Fitzsimmons would consent to another postponement until Friday next, with the proviso that if Ma her's eyes were still affected on that date no objection would be raised to Fitzsim mons receiving the forfeiture. To this Julian replied : "We will give you an answer to-morrow morning." "Why not now," persisted Connelly. "I have made a journey of several hun dred miles at your request and some little consideration is due me as much as to your dinner party." "We will answer to-morrow," cuckooed Julian. "Give me a straightforward answer here and now," ejaculated the now thoroughly aroused Connelly. "I know your mind is made up and it is as well to answer now as it would have been three hours ago if my train had been on time." "To-morrow." lisped Julian. Connelly turned on bis heel and bought a ticket for that section of the amphithea ter farthest from the seats occupied by the Fitzsimmons crowd. Oncoming back to town he went at once to headquarters and wrote a dispatch to Maher, telling him to come down on the morning train, even if he had to envelope his head in a Mexican blanket. This done, -he said: "We will see whether or not Fitzsimmons takes the forfeit in the morning. Friday next Peter will be in shape to fight for certain, but we will not put him in the ring a day ear lier unless we are compelled to. Rather than concede the" forfeit we will have Maher in the ropes so that his condition may be apparent. By doing this we will save our purse, and the decision will' be upon the referee. It must not be forgotten, however, that under the articles the pro moters must give us twenty-four hours, notice to get into the ring, and must also advise us privately where that ring is lo cated and how we canireach it. We have The San Francisco Call. not heard a word from them yet. How ever, I would like to see the man who would nay over our forfeit money under such conditions." Dan Stuart ana his colleagues listened to this talk, but said never a word. The proposed conference of the welter and feather weights and bantams also failed to materialize. Marshall, who was to have met George Dixon, came down from Las Cruces to-night for the purpose of weigh ing in to-morrow. He was told by O'Ronrke, however, that the formality would bs waived. Governor Ahnamada sent his secretary over from Juarez this morning to procure a supply of the latest American papers published East of Kansas City. To a rep resentative of The United Press the Gov ernor said this evening that he was still on the alert and proposed to remain at the post of duty until the lighters had for a certainty abandoned their plans and Mexican soil was free from their invasion. Dan Stuart was pressed acaln to-day by a number of Eastern men, who are wail ing over and whistling to keep up their courage, to give them a candid opinion upon which they might determine whether to go home at once or wait a while longer. One of these, Wells Weidman of Balti more, spoke his mind freely to the big promoter. Said he: "Here I have come nearly 2500 miles on your say-so, because it was given out that Dan Stuart had this time a sure-thing con cession for a fighting carnival and a bull carnival. Your bull carnival was stopped and your lights have not materialized. What sort of a game is it, anyhow? Does Dan Stuart's word go, or doesn't it?" But the Baltimorean and those in the same boat with him are still without satis faction to-night. Maher's eyes have improved wonder fully during the past twenty-four hours. The catarrhal discharge has been ar rested, the spots within the lids have van ished and very little blood remains about the eyeballs. The face above and below the eyes, however, is seared from the blis tering lotions applied by the physicians, while around the left eye there are several incrustations. . On the whole, however, the improvement has been more rapid than the physician expected. New articles of agreement are being drawn up to-night for a fight between Fitzsimmons and Maher on next Friday. Buck Connelly says he will deposit $5000 to be forfeited if Maher does not enter the ring or. Friday. The new agreement will be submitted to Julian and Fitzsimmons in the morning. Stuart will use his influ ence in getting Fitzsimmons' consent to the new agreement. Dixon and Marshall have already been matched to meet before the Long Island Club March 8 and Bright Eyes and Wal cott before a Boston club March 15. The Olympic Club of New Orleans has wired for the Leeds-Everhart contest, and date and other details will be settled to-mor row. TAME HVTjT.-FIGBTIXG. ! Governor Ahuamada a Spectator at a Sickening Exhibition, EL PASO, Tex., Feb. 16.— The bull-tights at Juarez this afternoon attracted a crowd of 4000, two-thirds men and women from the American side. It was a brutal and disgusting exhibition. The first two bulls looked more like milch cows and were as harmless as septuagenarian cats. The prodding of the bauderilleros, instead of working them into a frenzy only resulted in their getting down on their haunches and bellowing piteously, as though they could not understand what was required of them or why they should thus be tor tured. The matadors also were mere novices, and one of them broke three sDears in one of the helpless animals before giving it its coup. The remaining two bulls put up a lively fight, with the result that two pica dors were severely injured and one horse killed. Governor Ahuamada with his staff, Col lector Bauche and the entire force of Chi huahua State officials, was present. Lieu tenant-Governor Cortes presided over the fight. The sight of a horse whose abdomen had been ripped open by a bull's horn was so sickening as to cause numbers of the American spectators to leave the amphi theater. At the' close of the fights Fitzsimmons, who had occupied a box, asked Governor Ahuamada if he did not consider bull-fight ing more disgusting than prize-fighting. The Governor smilingly remarked that it was the custom of the country, but that he deprecated the use of horses in bull fights. — — — — — — — — — — — - TWO ItRVTAV MTRI>ERS. A Kentvckian Confeamett That He Killed Hit Wife and Xiecc. Z AUGUSTA, Ky., Feb. 16.— Robert Henry Laughlin to-day confessed that he brutally murdered his wife and his niece, Mary Janes, yesterday morning at his home on the Rock Spring turnpike. Laugh lin seemed easy when the visitors arrived, but as the Marshal asked him about some blood on his clothing this manner left him and his hands shook as he grasped the arms of the. chair. After persistent questioning by the Marshal Laughlin half rose from his chair and burst out weeping as he groaned: "I did it. I killed 'em both, God help me, and then tried to kill myself." , v- After further questioning he acknowl enged that he had attacked his niece, and after killing both her and his wife set fire to the house. MRS. LEASE IX A FULPIT. Thousands Assemble to Hear the Re- formed Reformer Preach. WICHITA, Kans., Feb. 16.— Mary E. Lease began her ministerial career in this city to-night, and it is safe to say that no minister ever entered upon his labors with more flattering prospects than did the noted Kansas woman. The Central Chinch of Christ, one of the largest in the city, was crowded to the . limit of its capacity, and many thousands were turned away. It had been expected that Mrs. Lease would deal largely in sensationalism, but her theme and its exposition were far re moved from anything of that nature. Many noted divines have spoken to Wichita audiences, but none of them were accorded such an enthusiastic reception as was Mrs.' Lease. It is predicted that her fame as a pulpit orator will far exceed that which she achieved us a reformer. Champagne Imports in 1895. According to Customs Statistics G. H.

CAPTIVE CUBANS PUT TO DEATH Prisoners in the Cabanas Said to Have Been Slain. GOMEZ WILL RETALIATE He Will Take a Life for a Life if the Rumor Proves True. CONSUL WILLIAMS DENOUNCED. An American Correspondent Claims He Was Denied Protection by Our Representative. HAVANA, Cuba, Feb. 16.— The air is full of rumors. One is that twenty-four political prisoners in the Cabanas were shot Wednesday night. General Weyler says he knows nothing of it. It is also said Gomez has notified Weyler that if Cubans in the cities are shot he will retaliate by shooting Spaniards in the interior of the island. . vj.vi' ;^, V; "- : ; Gomez and Maceo are both in Havana province. The latter moved eastward after the Candelaria and San Cristobal en gagements, crossed the military line south of Guanajay, passed' around Guira de Melena and is near San Felipe. Gomez has been a few miles east of San Felipe for several days. A detached column of rebels moved north and engaged Managua, fifteen miles from Havana, where the volunteers surrendered, joining the in vaders with arms and ammunition. Other parties moved even to the outskirts of Havana, taking the horses of milkmen in the suburban town of Juburbana, and ex changed shots with the garrison in the house at Jesus Monte. With Castillo's party of 2000 men in the east and Maceo's force from the west, Gomez has 6000 men under arms operating in Havana province. Skirmishes between the outposts are of daily occurrence. The Spanish officers of minor grades generally magnify these into battles, but since the arrival of Weyler the official reports are much nearer the truth than formerly. Volunteers are being sent from Havana to the field. ■ ■' < The order forbidding correspondents to accompany the columns of troops is strictly enforced, making it difficult to ob tain reliable news. Very little is given out officially. The American correspondent, Mannix, ordered to leave, owing to having pub lished obnoxious news, sailed on the Oli vett for the United States yesterday. Mannix hied a formal protest with Ameri can Consnl Williams. Mannix claims the latter aided the Spanish Government more than the American citizen. Williams en deavored to induce Mannix to leave volun tarily. Mannix refused until served with an official order. Williams then cabled a protest to the Washington State Depart ment, which replied that it saw no cause for interference. Mannix shows the fol lowing copy of an official cablegram said to have been sent to* the Foreign 'Minister at Madrid on February 8: El Duan, Madrid: There is no American cor respondent in jail in Havana, nor - has this Government threatened any such representa tives with imprisonment. There is a party, however, against whom we have received in dications that his presence here was prejudi- : cial; he having, it is claimed, written ob- I noxious news. The matter being laid before the American Consul, he suggested and under took to inform tne party that his departure from the - island was advisable. INo j threats were made. The Government has^wortred hi full accord with Mr. Williams, and as a result, the obnoxious party will- embark to-morrow, voluntarily, and without 1 compulsion on the part of this Government, direct or indirect. By his excellency, El Secundo Cabo Suarez Valdea. Consul Williams declined to talk, under the rules of the office prohibiting the giving of information to the press. __J. Frank Clark. WE JEER ISSUES A UKASE. Captured Friaonera Will He Subjected to a Moat Summary Trial. HAVANA, Cuba, Feb. 16. — Captain- General Weyler to-night issued a series of proclamations, in which he still further defines his proposed policy toward the in surgents and their sympathizers. The first proclamation reads as follows: Article 1. All inhabitants of the district of Sancti Spiritus and the provinces of Puerto Principe and Santiago de Cuba will have to concentrate In places which are the headquar ters of a division, a brigade, a column or a troop, and will have to be provided with docu mentary proof of identity within eitrtit days of the publication of this proclamation in" the municipalities. < r~?'.'-7£- Article 2. To travel in • the country in the radius covered by the columns in operation it is absolutely indispensable to have a pass from the Mayor, military commandants or, chiefs of detachments. iT--W Article 3. All owners of commercial estab lishments in the country districts will vacate them, and the chiefs of columns will take such meat ires as the success of th«ir operations dictates regarding such places which, while useless for the country's wealth, serve the enemy as hiding places in the woods and in the interior. Continued on Second Page. Ex-Queen Liliuokalani of Hawaii, Whom President Dole Has Granted a Fa 1 I ar Jon [From a. recent. photograph.] .. LILIUOKALANI IS FREE AGAIN Granted a Full Pardon by the President of Hawaii. BUT ONE RESTRICTION. Must Ask the Consent of Dole Should She Wish to Leave Oahu Island. THE EX-QUEEN IS PLEASED. Now at Liberty to Roam Over a Por tion of the Domain of Her Ancestors. HONOLULU, • Hawaii. Feb. 7.— Ex- Queen Liliuokalani has been granted a full pardon by President Dole. The decree was signed last night. Tbe only restric tions it 'placed upon Mrs. Dominis are that she shall not leave Oahu island with out the consent of the President or his Cab inet officers. The document which restores the ex- Queen to full freedom would have been I signed on the 17th of January, but it was | thought that it would have been distaste ful to her ex-Majesty to receive it on such an unpleasant (for her) anniversary. It was then decided to postpone the matter until after President Dole's return from Hawaii. He came back on Tuesday after noon and the pardon was signed yester day afternoon. It was written on two sheets of paper of the kind usually em ployed in diplomatic correspondence and sent from the Foreign Office to the ex- Queen's residence at Washington place by a special messenger. It reads as follows: Executive Building,* Honolulu, Feb. 7. 1806. ) Mrs. LiliuoJcalani Domini*. Washington Place: With the advice of the Cabinet I take pleasure in modifying the restriction placed upon your freedom at the time of your release from your confinement. Until further notice only the observance on your part of the following conditions will be required by the Government: Not to leave the island of Oahu without the consent of the President or a member of the Cabinet. . ,' ■ I desire to express my appreciation of the good faith with which you have observed the requirements of a former letter. Sanford B. Dole. The former letter referred to in the fore going was as follows: Executive Chamber, Honolulu, Sept. 6, 1895. j Madam— By the advice of the Cabinet and Council of State, I have this day signed an order releasing you from confinement in the Executive Building, which order provides that you may be remanded to confinement at any time upon the order of the President, and also that your enlargement is subject to such con ditions as the President may from time to time require. BfiP Until further notice, as conditions of your enlargement, you will be required to occupy Washington place in Honolulu as your resi dence .and will not be allowed to absent your self therefrom over night without the written consent of the President or a member of the Cabinet. During the term of your sentence, or until the same is modified as to time, you are re quired to live In a quiet, unostentatious man ner and to abstain from having political meet ings or other gatherings at your residence, or attending such meetings elsewhere. You will not be allowed to have a retinue or guards, and your attendants will be limited to necessary domestics, the number of which is hereby fixed at thirteen meu and eight women, besides children. Mr. Wilson an 1 family will be allowed to reside at Washington place, if you desire. In regard to receiving calls, I would call your attention to the impropriety of receiving others under, the circumstances than personal acquaintances and those coming on business. Trusting to your own judgment and good faith to carry out the spirit of these instruc tions, I would intimate that your conduct will nave influence upon any future consideration of the further modification of your sentenc?. Sanford B. Dole. To Mrs. Liliuokalani Dominis. It .is understood that the ex-Queen is very much pleased with the removal of all restrictions on her personal liberty. As she never had any desire to leave the islands the proviso that she cannot leave without permission cuts little figure. It is generally understood that the present state of affairs has been brought about by the persistent efforts of Charles B. Wilson, her late marshal and present »qen4v under whose advice she has been acting since her arrest last year. . •;•. V<r IX TAD Eli HI J~A.FA.NESE. Hawaii Overrun by Merchants and Tradesmen Fr om the Orient. HONOLULU,- Hawaii. Feb. 7.— The new Japanese. Consul and Diplomatic Agent, Mr. Shimamura, left for the island of Hawaii to-day to personally examine into the condition of the Japanese laborers on the sugar plantations of that island. Mr. Shimamura has been working hard since his arrival to familiarize himself with the needs of the Japanese colony in tnese islands, and there is little doubt but that the Government will soon hear from him on several matters pertaining to the welfare of his countrymen. Leaders of the different Japanese socie ties are already discussing and drafting petitions to the coming Legislature for the passage of bills enhancing their business opportunities here. The principal aim of these discussions and petitions is the plac ing of Japan on a parity with the United States in regard to the importation of ex? clusively . manufactured Japanese goods which do not enter into competition with those of the United States. Local Japan ese merechants want all these goods ad mitted duty free into the Hawaiian repub lic. Another matter which will have to be considered by the Legislature is the re quest of numerous Japanese for the is suance to them of letters of denization. Thus far the Hawaiian Government has denied these letters to Japanese, or rather has dallied with the matter without giv ing ' a decisive answer. This is probably the entering wedge in a further demand for suffrage, which the Japanese have always claimed under the "favored nations" clause of existing treaties. Honolulu's white merchants are begin ning to feel the encroachments of the Japanese in various lines, of business to an alarming extent, but they seem to be powerless to prevent the constantly in creasing number of stores and consequent competition. Three years ago the Jap anese stores in the city could be counted on the fingers of one hand. To-day there are over a hundred of them. Japanese stores of all Kinds are to be found in every block; there are over 150 barbershops and bathhouses run by Japanese. They have even started blacksmith and harness stores. Japanese . carpenters, painters and paperhangers underbid white con tractors 33 per cent, and the Japanese quarter of Honolulu is daily becoming more and more Orientalized. SHOCKED AY A TEMBLOR. Subterranean JHaturbance* Give Renewed '■ Activity to a Volcano. '- HONOLULU, Hawaii, Feb. 7.— There were several slight shocks of - earthquake on the island of Hawaii a few nights since. One peculiar effect from the shaking was to to cause lava in the pit of Kilauea volcan to drop suddenly about eighty feet, caus ing a crust to form over the surface. Fire broke through the next morning, however, and the volcano is now more active than before. The earthquake evidently opened up some subterranean fissure into which the molten lava dropped. When it was filled the flow of lava went on as usual. Tourists to the volcano express themselves as highly pleased with the wonderful sight afforded them. Cruise of the Jtoaton. HONOLULU. Hawaii, Feb. The cruiser Boston left yesterday morning for Yokohama. She took on board 650 tons of coal here, of which. 150: was carried in sacks on deck. It is expected she will make Yokohama without difficulty unless she experiences bad . weather. If so her i coal supply will run short. PRICE FIVE CENTS. MRS. NANSEN IS IN DOUBT. She Has Received No News From the Fram or Its Crew. REPORTS ARE VAGUE. Scientists Not Yet Prepared to Believe That the Pole Has . Been Reached. THE OPINION IN WASHINGTON. Rumor of Nansen's Success Believed to Have Been Started Through Some Misunderstanding. NEW YORK, N. V., Feb. 17.— sDecial dispatch to the Journal from Christiania says in regard to Dr. Nansen's reported discovery of the north pole: "The news, though exceedingly vague, is believed by some authorities to have some foundation; others are in doubt, be cause of the source from which it origi nates. I have not the least conception of where the Fram is now, or when it may be expected. Eva Nans ex." WASHINGTON, D. C, Feb. 16.—In credulity still reigns supreme among the scientists in Washington best qualified to form an opinion on the subject as to the reported return of Nansen, the Norwegian Arctic explorer, and the still more re markable story, without details, of his having drifted to the north pole and drifted back again. Dr. William 11. Dall, one of the most experienced paleontologists of the United States Geographical Survey, who has made Arctic matters his particu lar study, to-day said : "An examination of the telegrams re ceived shows that the only facts in our possession are that a rumor has been received from Yakutsk to the effect that Nansen is on his way from the polar sea. The telegram from Archangel is probably the result of the receipt there of the same rumor from Russian sources. Since no message from Nansen himself is received and no statement of bi3 whereabouts it seems probable that the rumor is due to a misunderstanding of some expression of his anticipated _. arrival by, persons, In "Northern Siberia, who had been notified ■ to be on the lookout for Nansen's party. "It is quite generally understood among Arctic experts that the alleged discovery of Jeannette relics on the coast of Green land was due to a foolish prank of some persons connected with the naval vessel which visited Greenland the season of their discovery and that the guilty parties, after finding their hoax taken seriously were afraid to confess the truth. Conse quently the basis of Nansen's theories, so far as it was formed by these fictitious relics, is of little weight. "That drift from the Bering Strait re gion might, in the course of years, find its way out of the passage been Iceland and Greenland is entirely possible, as the incident of the Alaskan throwing a stick proves; but the particular instance is due to the special circumstances of the case — temporary winds, currents, etc. — in all probability, and there is as yet no evi dence of any permament system of drift. "If such a system existed it would be incomprehensible why nothing has ever been found of the multitude of wrecks which have been known to drift into the polar basin from the Bering Strait region, and of which nothing has ever turned up." The El Dorado Floated. NEW YORK, N. V., Feb. 17.-The steamer El Dorado, Captain Byrne, re ported ashore on Oyster Island, was floated at high water last ni ht after discharging E'art of its cargo.

The result of his study improved by thirty years of practice is embodied in Dr. Pierces Fa- vorite Prescription. It serves but one pur- pose.

It gives weak women the strength and health necessary for the production of healthy children and it makes the bearing of those children easy. It is sure to cure any weak- ness "or derangement peculiar to women; stops pain, soothes inflammation, strength- ens, purifies, invigorates. .Thousands of homes have been made happy by its use. Thousands of letters like this one from Mrs. W. P. Cain, of Clinton, Allegheny Co., Pa., who writes : "1 was affected with all sorts of fe- male trouble. I tried three doctors, and seven kinds of patent medicine, and found no relief. My husband said 'try Dr.' Pierce's medicine."
