All Fights but the Big
One Are Officially-
Declared Off.
Have Given Up Hope of Seeing
a Contest Between Maher
and Fitzsimmons.
Refuses to Enter Into a Conference to
Arrange for a Meeting on
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
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
"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
"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
! 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
The matadors also were mere novices,
and one of them broke three sDears in one
of the helpless animals before giving it its

so sickening as to cause numbers of the
American spectators to leave the amphi

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.
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
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.

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
Consul Williams declined to talk, under
the rules of the office prohibiting the
giving of information to the press.

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

Queen Liliuokalani has been granted a
full pardon by President Dole. The decree
was signed last night. Tbe only restric

that she shall not leave Oahu island with
out the consent of the President or his Cab

Queen to full freedom would have been
I signed on the 17th of January, but it was

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:

in modifying the restriction placed upon your

your part of the following conditions will be

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
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.

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
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
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.
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
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.

Scientists Not Yet Prepared to

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."

healthy the organs distinctly feminine. It
gives weak women the strength and health
