Sugar King Havemeyer ami Searles w ill have to face the music to-morrow as broker Chapman did. —-O The report that McKinley may send a Cuban message to Congress has put the country upon the tip-toe of expec tation. -o The photographer, who "took" Mur derer Hoetman during his gallows re hearsal. probably just from sheer force of habit asked him to "look pleasant." -o A verascope view of the proceedings during the division of the West Vir ginia patronage at Washington would make an interesting exhibit to take through the State. -o Mr. Gorman has made the Mug wumps fighting mad by remarking that Mr. Cleveland's latest utterances amused him. Mr. Gorman should have had enough consideration for the Mug wumps to ,Uave kept a straight face , whiie Mr. Cleveland was talking. Uncle Sam has kept hands off Cuba thus far. but it's hard work, and if ever he turns himself loose on Butcher Weyler, there will be but cne thing for that personage To do—turn tail and fly as fas' a* ship can carry him back to Spain. -o If we are to do noihing to aid Cuba let us at least do something to relieve the suffering of our fellow countrymen , in the island who are kept penned up by the Spaniards without food. Every American heart demands that some thing be done and quickly, in the name of humanity. ------ The general move, particularly in th’’ smaller towns nil over the country, to adopt curfew ordinances, which shall keep young children off the streets after dark. hns struck \Y est Virginia hard and our State exchanges are full of curfew talk. The fact is ap par ntly not appreciated that it is not the young and innocent children caught playing out of doors after dark who do the mischief, but their elders. How would it do to let the babies alone and turn our attention to framing a law to catch the grown night owl loafers? And now Tillman threatens to poke i his pitchfork into the rumor that Sen- •; ators have recently speculated in sugar j stock and discover what there is in it. | What with that threat, the continual | warwhoops of Morgan and other fiery gentlemen on the Cuban question, the rustling about of the tarifT lobby and the scrapping over appointments, things are pretty tolerably lively in the usually quiet, dignified and somnolent Senate. — Till I IM} li \ \M> rill- !• 111 The camera has frequently played the part of detective and revealed wrong-doers in acts that had escaped the human eye. and now the same »1 1 icate. lightning-like and accurate in strument has revealed with its tell tale film a fact that is calculated to set th sporting fraternity by the ears and cause no end of talk among the patti- ; sans of Messrs. Corbett and Fitzsim- ; mons. The verascope. whose pictures of the fight at Carson City, by the way. are said to be as clear and clean cut u> cameos, notwithstanding the statement that they were failures, which evident- i ly was given out to stem the tide of ad-1 verse legislation against the proposed | exhibition of them—a ruse which was most successful—shows every move ment of the fighters with perfect accu racy. and it reveals the fact that the last blow struck by Fitzsimmons was ! a palpable foul and landed on Corbett's jaw while the latter whis on his hands and knees suffering inkgonv from the terrible blow on the s kr plexls. which rendered him hors deieombat. The final scene as revealtl by the vera ecope is thus described: Wr.en the knock-out came Corbett wa» | on a *!ow retreat before FltzsimmonS. * no was sliding forward In a knock-kneed - ri of shuffle. He had grown strong since rh -ix;h round and was on the aggres j Suddenly, as the bald-headed man comes 1 for'.v ini. Corbett lunges out with his left. ! Then th-re Is trouble. Fitzsimmons ducks ! (0 ,he right. In the pictures you can see t’orbi. tt's left arm line a holt of iron over Fixsimmona s left shoulder. Her is wher the solar plexus punch ......... n. The left lead has left Corbett’s stomach comparatively unguarded, t i.z- | mmons steps quickly forward, sliding ^ ,' rbett's arm over his shoulder to the el- j bow. Then he hooks his left fist into the i pit of Corbett's stomach. The sight of thes- pictures ends all dis-| to how the "c^up1' was admin- j .-•-red. Corbett is seen toppling slowly l rward with open mouth. His right hand j reaches for the floor. His right knee fol [ ; ,ws. He seems to be helpless. The him pictures indicate the greatest . excitement about the ringside. The men : n iron: of the ring bob up and down and I -wav from side to side. As Corbett sinks to the floor with Fltz . turnons looming above him. \ou ma> see 1 m the pictures the long left arm of the I Australian swing back then come forward a swift uppercut for the left point of 1 Corbett’s jaw. As the blow starts It seems that Fitz immon- real.z s what he is doing. He ap pears to try with all his might to hold the blow ba, k. But it lands, nevertheless. Oorb* it's right glove is on the floor when *. catches It. Fitzsimmons's hack is turned to the spectator*, but the pictures -how the sw-ep of the glove very plainly. T, r, f. r- -‘ands beyond both men. at a distance of about six feet. As to the fact of the foul there is no question: it is revealed in the photo graphs as plain as day and. indeed, it was noted by several spectators who were n a position to see it; but it was j evidently unintentional on Fitzsim- j man's part, that is. the blow landed be- j f..re he realized the big Californian was ■ down, and had little or nothing to do j with ihe knockout, which, it is gener ally conceded, was accomplished by the fearful punch in the pit of the stomach. That is Corbett's own ver sion of the knockout and he entered no claim of foul. It seemed evident that if Corbett had not been knocked out when he was it would have been only a question of a few more rounds, for after missing his opportunity to “finish" Fitzsimmons in the sixth round, which came so near proving fatal to the Cornishman that it was claimed he was down consider ably over the ten seconds limit, while Corbett seemed to grow weaker Fitz simmons appeared to gain strength. The result of the battle showed it to have been one between stamina ami science, in which the former proved the winner. ' -O " AN IMPORTANT MEETING.

DILLON. WHEAT & HANCHER CO. 1 Special to the Resister. Sistersville, W. Va., May 15. Treat & Crawford's Asher No. 1 is making 13 barrels an hour from the first pay. They will drill it to the second pay some time this week, and if it acts like other gushers out there it will be a big producer. The B. F. Hawkins No. 1 of the Atlas Oil Company's, situated about 1,000 feet northeast of the Elk Fork Oil and Gas Company's No. 1, is com paratively a dry hole, making the first one drilled in out there and as it is just above the country store up the hollow, it will put a stop to the premeditated work in that particular portion of the field. This well coming in dry is the first black eye administered this field which now has about a dozen big wells and it is thought they were over the line. Work Bros. & Henderson will case Sunday on the Lowery farm, and since the advent of the Asher well this ven ture looks a sure thing, and as they have to go about 1.900 feet with this well owing to it being located on top of a 350-foot hill, it will be about the last of next week before its result can be ascertained. We hope for a good strike. The Henry Oil Company, which has a lot of work going on out there, wil* put the casing in their Joe Williams to-morrow and drill it in about the middle of the week. This well, like that of the Work Bros., looks like a sure shot, and if it is it will put an impetus on the work in that particular part of the fieM. This location is south of east about three-quarters of a mile from the first strike out there. Barnsdall & Nichols will rea,ch the pav at their Maxwell No. 1 about next Thursday, and if this well comes in a gusher it will make a large tract of territory available for developing. I his well is the farthest in advance out there, and is being watched with con siderable interest by the talent, as its determination will either put a black eye on the territory in that neighbor hood or make it worth a fabulous sum of money. Nichols & Co. are casing their Woods No 3 with the 10-inch. and are rigging up for their No. 4. Their No. 3 is the largest producer out there, making a : total of 288 barrels a day. No. 1 and , No. 2 Elk Fork are making 240 con- | jointly; Venus Oil Company’s church | lot well 135: Huling's school house well 180; Brenneman’s Joy No. 1, 80; Treat & Crawford’s No. 1 Hawkins 168. and their Asher No. 1. 312. St. Mary’s W. Va.. May 16—Ballard & Co. arc puttirg up a rig on the A. B. Core farm on French creek. Seldon & Johnson drilled in a well on I the E. M. Cook farm on French creek, j bur no definite information has been j obtained respecting its production. i Mallory Bros, are moving their tools i from the dry hole at Vanduse to the Cornwallis field. TheCarson City Oil Company has ! about finished a rig on the C. W. Bills j farm. Spudding will commence in two j or three days. Crosper, Wolf & Co. will clean out the No. 1 on the C. W. Bills farm the coming week and pump it. The Franchot Bros, have located a well on the J. S. Smith farm and are j getting ready to start the drill. The Franchot Bros, are drilling on I th% Gallaher farm. This well and the Carson City Oil Companv'9 well on the j C W. Bills farm are matters of interest. | as they will decide the value of a com- j parativelv new field. If these two , wells are good producers there will be . a boom here. The Wilson & Campbell well on the Dye farm is going down slowly. Part | of the casing had to be drawn and some reaming done before the work could proceed further. Special to the Register. PARKERSBT'RG. W. Va.. May 15.— Col. W E. Chilton, of Charleston, who wns here this week, made another invest ment in oil territory in the Hendershot field. He has purchased Dudley & Car n< \'s 10-22 working interest in the Samps Al'eman farm, on which there is ore good producer already drilled in. The price 1» private. The remainder of the farm will be fully developed. Special to the Register. C.LENVILLE, W. Va.. May 15.—The Mil ler Sibley well, drilled in about a year ago on the Hardman farm and abandon ed. has been cleaned recently and is mak ing about five barrels. The same company moved a derrick up to the Wiant & Bennett lease, in the same county, and will begin spudding in a few days. The company have many thousands of acres under lease in that county. I, at was drilled into the Cow Run sand Friday right, and proved to be a dry hole. The sand was reached at a depth of *'>1S feet. There whs 25 feet of sand which had the appearance of being a good producer, but the greasy fluid was not there, and the drillers are now engaged in pulling the casing. The lli< ks well is down about 1.315 feet in the Salt sand, and has about 4*1 feet to go before reaching the Big Injun. There is every indication that it will make a producer. Mr. Baird, the man ag<r. is r.ow in New York, and is expected in Moundsville the first of the week to watch the well come In. SHOT THEIR WELL. The North Per.n Oil Comvany have shot their No. 2. on the Rogerson, and while the result cannot be definitely ascertained ! until Monday, the indications are that the ; production will be doubled.

"The Geisha” has passed its 375th performance at Daly’s London Theatre. The city fathers of Aix-la-Chapelle have prohibited the performance of Of fenbach's “Orphie aux Enfers” for mor i al iea9ons. Messrs. Jefferson. Klaw & Erlanger have decided to erect two new theatres j in New Orleans. In Nat Goodwin's production of the "Taming of the Shrew” Maxine Elliott will play Katherine. Sir Henry Irving will unveil the stat ute to Mrs. Siddons on Paddington Green at noon on June 14th. Grace Golden sang the title role in the Washington Castle Square Com pany’s production of “Erminie.” At Chicago, May 7. Laura Joyce-Bell celebrated her birthday, and the twen tieth anniversary of her debut. Look out for Della Fox in vaudeville. The Russel-Fox-De ^Angelis combina tion will probably not be in existence next season. Villa Knox, the prima donna of the Lyric Opera Company, takes her name by transposing the words of her native town, Knoxville. Tenn. Clara Morris vuade her vaudeville debut at Gilmore’s Auditorium. Phila delphia. last week. Fanny McIntyre will appear at that house this week. Edgar Smith and Herman Perlet have completed a new opera that has not yet been named, but which will be produced in Kansas City in June, j Sarah Bernhardt ha9 recently given ! her “annual performance to the stu : dents of Paris.” “La Tosca” was the I play. There were no women and no bald heads present. Thomas W. Keene has received a flattering offer to enter vaudeville. If ! he does appear in "The Continuous” it j will be in a condensed version of "Drink.” Two dramatic eitorts or me vtueeu , of Roumania, who writes under the non i de plume of Carmen Sylva. have re I cently been produced at the Royal The ; atre, at Bukarest. The French government ordered all of the subsidized theatres of France to 1 be closed until Saturday of last week because of the great national calamity , in the burning of the Charity Bazaar. What is known of the “normal pitch" (diapason normal) is making such head way in European countries that foreign ! musical journals express the hope that it will soon be known as the interna tional pitch.” The Russian traveler, Obrutscheff. speaks admiringly of the arial concerts made by pigeons in the Celestial King dom. it seems that a sort of aolian ( harp is attached to each pigeon, either to make music or to frighten away birds of prey. For a nickel at a Chicago theatre last week one could witness a vaudeville programme headed by Maurice Barry more in “A Man of the World, and in cluding Hutch and Clifford and other first-class people. William Mullaney, the critic of the Albany Express, has secured a continu ation of the injunction restraining F. F. Proctor and his managers from keeping him out of the Leland Opera House in that city. There are several “Uncle Tom" com- - panics on the road. The first dramati zation of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” was pro duced at Welch’s National Theatre. Philadelphia. Pa., in 1852. The copy right on the novel expired in 1802. and anybody has a right to dramatize it now. A story comes from the Pacific Const to the effect that De Wolf Hopper and his wife. Edna Wallace Hopper, have decided to separate. The trouble, it is said, arises from an idea on the part of the genial comedian that bis wife has ! too many and too devoted admirers, and | that she has accepted too many pres ; ents.—New York Mercury. Helphurn Johns declares that “Shore Acres" is the best American play yet written, and one of the gravest the world has ever known. The only draw back the success of "Shore Acres en tails is that it is keeping Mr. Hearne from putting on a new play. Mr. Hearne. has completed at least one dra ma of as great importance as "Shore I Acres. Eugene Cowles, the basso of the Bos- | ; tonian Opera Company, is now on the I rack answering: a suit for separation in ’ the New York Supreme Court, brought hv his wife for incompatibility of tem 1 per. Mr. and Mrs. Cowles have been married fourteen years, and have one child, a son. who lives with his mother ! in Harlem. Mark Twain says he is going to write a play. It is a fair surmise that it will he a stage version of his "A Connecticut ' Yankee at King Arthur’s Court.” Mark Twain is the only American writer of books who has drawn a fortune from the use of his mat'er in theatres. Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe would have i been enriched if she had protected her dramatic right in “Cncle Tom s Cabin. Edward Harrigan. in a series of local 1 sketches, under the management of W il. j liam .T. Gilmore, will appear next season at the Philadelphia Auditorium for a long engagement. It is more than likc lv that many prominent stars of the theatrical profession will appear at this house during the coming season, as i* is not in the syndicate, and is tho new ' est and most modern of all the Quaker , City's theatres, and is in a location to attract patronage from every section of the city. Manager William A. Brady does not propose to submit to the decision of 'he Board of Director? of the Actors’ So 1 cietv of America, under the terms of which he would be compelled to pm* four salaries for Hob’ Week to the siv < members of the "Under the Polar S*ar • company, who compelled the m.v’ager to Close‘the tour at Fall River after the second act of the performance, b ur thermore.
