The photographer, who "took" Mur

A verascope view of the proceedings

Mr. Gorman has made the Mug

Uncle Sam has kept hands off Cuba
thus far. but it's hard work, and if

to Spain.
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

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

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.

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
Work Bros. & Henderson will case
Sunday on the Lowery farm, and since
the advent of the Asher well this ven

350-foot hill, it will be about the last
of next week before its result can be
ascertained. We hope for a good
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;

Seldon & Johnson drilled in a well on I
the E. M. Cook farm on French creek, j
bur no definite information has been j

Mallory Bros, are moving their tools i

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.

PARKERSBT'RG. W. Va.. May 15.—
Col. W E. Chilton, of Charleston, who

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.
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.
