Tom. Hobiiison and those who accom
panied hiin to Circletille to see the fight
with I.e Hlanche, the "Marine," retunitd
home at 2 o'clock this morning. The entire
iwrtv was disgusted because the "Marine-
did not put in his appearance at Circletille
at all, and Hobliison's friends and backers
are not backward in say ing tint I.e Hlanche
wis afraid to face Kobinson, and that lie Is
a cow anlly sneak.
I.e HIatiehe's backer was on the ground
and belicuil up to the last minute that his
man would be on hands. Kinally. how
ever, a telegram was received iroiu i.e
Hlanche dated at Chicago, and stating that
he had joined the John I. Sullivan paity
and was just about to depart for California
and could not, therefore, meet his engage
ment to liirht lfohlllson.
This knocked the
tli. .oI,iil.iti.,tiw .if flu. iuirtliif ttien skv-
wanl and thej began to steer for home.
I.e Blanche's backer wasnighl indignant
and denounced him as a coward and sneak,
and declaied that he would publish him
from one end of the country to the other.
The gentleman had put up his money. 5300,
in good faith, and he did not relish the idea
of being euchred out of it in any such man
ner. A representative of the Gi.oiiE-rtE-ri
m.ic saw John Coh.in. the stakeholder,
today, and asked him if he had turned over
the stakes to llohiuson and his backers.
"Xo. I haven't." replied lie. "I still
hold the money, and probably will hold it
for several days. There is a difference of
opinion as to whether Kobinson's backers
get all the stakes or not, and as 1 am not
alxnit it inv self I shall write to
Richard K. Fo, of New York, who is tin
highest authority in this country on -sport
ing matters, and ask him what I shall do.
We shall abide bj his decision."
Concerning the proposed tight the Times
published lat evening a purported com

Circleviiie in which it was stated that Le-
Hlanche was there, that the fight would
tike place at S o'clock last evening, and that
tickets were ramdlv selling at 52 and S2.S0

When they reached the yard, the young

James then picked up the chickens they had
killed and started for the city.
The were pursued by the fanners, but
escaped when thev got within the corpo

The twenty-second annual convention of
the l'lii Camma Delta fraternity of the
rniled States will convene in this city to
morrow and continue for three days,

Chapter, of this city, has made elaborate
preparations for the convention and the
work of the three dajs will all be of inter
est; chiefly, however, to members of the
fraternitj. Tlio proceedings of the con
vention, as a body, will be similar to the
deliberations of a chapter, and consequently
of a "seerect society" nature. On tills ac
count a full programme of the convention
cannot be given, but a good idea ot the
character of the work can be given.
The business sessions of the convention
will take place at the K. of 1. hall, on
Market street There are thirty-two chap
ters of the fraternity in the country", repre
senting almost every state, and these will
nearly all send delegates. Oue hundred to

gleston, the author, of Brooklyn, N'ew
York; J. Clark liidpath, the noted
historian, a niemlier of the faculty of
De Pauvv University, flreencastle, Intl.,
and others. Some of the most distinguished
men of the countrj are members of the Phi
Gamma Delta fraternity.
The chief event of interest Is the banquet
at the Arcade hotel Friday evening. It will
probably be a "stag" affair, purely, but one
ot great brilliance, nevertheless. Thomas
J. Kirkpatrick, of this city, will act as
toastmaster. and among those who will re
spond to toasts are Hon. I-eroy 1). Brown,
state commissioner of common schools;

will be remembered there was a pacing race
last week at London between "Gray John,"
owned by Frank Sultzbach of this city, anil
managed by John Clark, aud Dr. West,
trained at Mechanicsburg, but owned by
Johnny Kilej, of London. The race in turf
parlance was "fixed" so that Dr. West
would win, but the driver of Gray John,
acting under instructions, endeavored to
beat his rival, but got left
This little, break created bad feeling Le
tw een the backer, of the horses, and thej
dared each other until finally a race was ar
ranged, to be paced on the Fair ground
track in this city, on November 4th. for
3500 a side. A 3100 forfeit has already
been deposited, and if the weather is favor
able the race will surely be a go.
On the same day tlie three-minute trot
that was to hav e come olf during the fair,
but was post polled, will be raced, and it
promises to be very interesting.
The follow ing horses will take part: Wm.
It. Burnett's "Ilailmonf," Yeazell's mare,
"Ixm Miller;" a black horse owned by
Welch, of near Plattsburg; J. L. Kidder's
"Kittle Kid:" ai.d Grove InsersolPs "Hosa
Willis." The race is for a citizens' purse
of 5200.
There will undoubtedly be a big turnout
to vv itness these races.

Hon. C. A. Flickinger, member of the

Section ninth prot ides that all ordinances

Mr. Prince then read the proposition of
tlie Springfield Gas Light and Coke Co.,
which is in substance as follows:
First That the companv will furnish gas
of standard quality for lighting the streets
alleys and public grounds of the city, and
will light and extinguish the lamps and
keep them in repair (tlie city to pay for the
necessary material for repairs), the lights

the price of 321 per lamp per annum, paj-a-ble

gas of like quality to the city for its public
offices and buildings and to all private con
sumers for 51.00 per 1.000 cubic feet

for use for 317 each.
The abot e propositions are subject to the
following conditions: That council
shall adopt and establish the
above prices for not less than lite
years, beginning at the expiration of the
present contract and further, that the num
ber of lamps shall at no time be less than
set en hundred.
Mr. Prince then re-1.-' the proposition of
the Champion Electric Light company-,
which is, in effect that the company pro
poses to light for such term of jears as
council may decide, fortj-fite electric lamps
of the same power now in use, to be located
at such points as may be designated, not

companj-will furnish from fifty-four to
fifty-six lights 3t S1S5 each per j ear, the
right of waj- to be granted on streets and
alleys for erecting joles and wires as may
be required. '
Tlie propositions were referred to the
committee on light, and a report maybe ex
pected next week.

tall, or the riir.ult ami Arre.t.
Yesterdaj. about noon. Marshal Hughes
received a dispatch from Warden ( iiftin. of
the penitentiary, stating that a prisoner by
the name of Francis, who was serving a
term of sixteen jears for murder, had es
caped. The telegram gave a minute de
scription of the convict and offered a re
ward of 350 for his capture.
The dispatches to the Gl.oiiK-I.i.ri in ic. j
J esterday afternoon, told how Francis,
while at the court-house as a witness m the '
tally -sheet forgery case, had coolly gotten
up and walked out of the building, thus
making his escape. Intense excitement
was created by the discovery of the escape,
and immediately detectives and policemen
were flying over the city in search
at the escaiei prisoner. Detective White
who is well known in this city, accompani
ed by Ollie Hauler, jumped Into a buggy
ami began to scour the roads running south
from Columbus thinking that Francis would
probably endeavor to escaie that way.
They tinallv met a blacksmith on a by-road
and asked him if he had seen such a man as
Francis, giving a vivid description of him.
The blacksmith replied, "Yes, I saw just
such a man as you describe on tlie road a
little ways east and I think he went into
the Spring Grove garden," which is about
four and a half miles from the city. The
detectiv e hurried on to the place so described I
and kept by a German woman named
Auchenbaclu Toe place is a public resort '
and known as the Koad house, and is fre
quented by a class of people who are out on t
a lark, regardless of color or sex. Vpon
entering the house Detective White
addressed the landlady- as follows :
"We want to see tin. young man
who ;ame here this morning on mi-1
portant business." Mrs. Auchenbach re
plied, "Why. he has gone avtay some time
ago." "That won't do." replied White. "I
know that he is here and we want to see
hlru right away. We are very good friends
of his," and the detectite mentioned the
names of well known friends of Francis. ,
This seemed to be the "open sesame" and
the woman replied, "AH right, gentlemen,
come this wn The lYinni' mnii Is lin .tnra

lying down In bed; he is very tired,'' and
from the actions of the landlady it seemed ,
that she had been posted as to w ho should
and who should not see her guest and also
that luckily he mentioned the right names.
Upon arriving at Francis's room up stairs, a
rap on the door by Mrs. Auchenbach brought
no resjionse. A second rap brought a reply
from the occupant as to "Who's there'"'
Mrs. Auchenbach replied, "Why,
it's two of your very best
friends, who want to see you a mo
ment" and she mentioned the
Barnes of the friend giten her by tliedetec
tire; whereat the lodger jumped up and un
latched the door in eager expectation of '
seeing the parties w hose names had been
mentioned, and instantly White grasped
I-rancis by the throat vv ith oue hand ami

his face and pushed him back over the fcot
of the bed. Francis commenced struggling.
whenMr. Hamer grasped oneof France's
hands and shoved his revolver in his face.
when rrancis, seeing that he was done for,
exclaimed, "I give up." He was then se
cured w ith handcuffs and taken down to
the buggy and taken to the city. Francis i
had gone to bed in the I'.oad house with his
clothing and shoes on, and et en iiad his hat
on when he openwl the door. On the road
to the city he abused Detectite White tio-
lently, calling him all the foul names he
could roll off the end of his tongue.
Francis was finally landed safely w ithin
the walls of the "jien," but even there he
made a t icious assault on Detectit e White, '
and had to be ironed. White received the
550 revv ard.
