BIG PUGS ARE IN UMBO.
CORBETT AND MITCHELL VOLUNTARILY GIVE THEMSELVES UP VO SETTLE THE QUESTION Whether tho Big Fight Shall Come Off in Jacksonville or Some Other Place — Trial to Take Place Jan. 2— The Duval Club Is Confident of the Final Outcome. Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. Those Who doubted the sincerity of Champion Jim Corbett and "Charley" Mitchell in their individual efforts to pull off the big fight here in January must give way now to the stronger evidence of facts. The big lighters today voluntarily gave themselves up the authorities in order to forestall arrest at a later date, and to test the legality of their proposed con test. It was all a prearranged plan, and so far as the plan itself goes, it was cleverly devised and satisfacto rily carried out. It had its" amusing features, too. for Corbett was not on hand at the appointed hour, and Mitchell raged and fumed when he dis covered that he had to face the court alone. Champion Jim had all along Viewed his possible arrest with feelings akin to horror, but towards the close of the afternoon he came up from his training quarters and took the sheriffs warrant without a mur mur. Manager J. E. T. Bowden. of the Duval Athletic club, has schemed for days and nights, so that there might be no interference. It has been a cher ished dream of his and of the other club magnates that the fight Should occur under the supervision of the Duval Athletic club, and right here in Jack sonville. But the vague rumors which have filled the air that the authorities would step in and take a hand, and the strange uncertainty as to the real move ments in the executive offices, have thrown a damper on all these plans and projects. Last night the officials decided upon a final effort. They gathered in the closest consultation, and then Attorney George F. Acosta, who lias worn an anxious look throughout the week, Was with them. A plan had been hit upon, and Mr. Acosta, having carefully searched his law books, sailed forth and PKOCLBED WARRANTS for the arrest of the two pugilists, on the gn und that they had agreed to participate in a light which was to come off within the boundaries of Florida. Both Corbett and Mitchell were apprised of what was in store for them, and neither offered serious ob jection. This morning Mitchell was arrested at the Everett hotel and taken he-ore Judge Baker, of the county court. The pugilist was more than surprised not to find Corbett in cus tody, but when informed by Bowden that Corbett had been sent for and would appear during the day.he calmed his. troubled spirit. The warrant was then read lo him, and he immediately gave bonds in the sum of $1,500 to ap pear before the criminal court Jan. 2, 18114. Mr. Bowden and Charles Rich ardson, also of the Duval club, signed the bond. Mitchell and his party left shortly afterwards for the training quarters at St. Augustine. About 4 o'clock in the afternoon Corbett came down from his Mayporr. cottage. "Jim" did not seem to mind the little part he had to play any more than if he were again on the boards. He looked as rugged and hearty as though he had always been enjoying the exhilarating breezes and the healthy fare of May port, and genial Billy Brady was behind him. Delauey and a small coterie of faithful adherents were also there, and accepted Sheriff Howard's kindly hospi tality with customary grace. Corbett also will be taken before the criminal court on Jan. 2. Then they left the court and declared their intentions of rem lining in Jacksonville until the next morning. ill- LATEST MOVE on the part of the managers of the Duval club was entirely unexpected by the outsiders. On Monday, Jan. 1, either Mitchell or Corbett will be sur rendered by his bondsmen. After he has been taken into custody a writ of habeas corpus will be applied for. If it is decided tiiat the arrest was an illegal one, then prepara tions for the light will continue With increased vigor, as that will be looked upon as evidence that no further opposition to the light can legally be made. If the arrest is considered legal, then the Duval managers say that the battle will be declared off, and all work will be stopped. The managers are confident, however, that the decision will be favorable to them, and this feeling is shared by the majority of the citizens. Work on the big arena is being pushed rapidly forward, and tickets for the contest are being sold in iarge numbers. Those who are opposed to the tight claim that the action taken by the Du val club is simply a blind. R. B. Arch ibald, one of the most prominent of the opposition, said tonight that whether the criminal court decided that the ar rests were illegal or not, it would have no bearing on the case. He said that such a decision would not prevent the stopping of the light by Gov. Mitchell or by the sheriff. This view was not shared by the majority of attorneys in this city, the general opin ion being that, should the decision of the court he favorable to the Duval club, further opposition will necessarily cease. Prosecuting Attorney Christie and District Attorney Harlridge have wired Gov. Mitchell, who is at present in Tampa, asking him to send Attorney General Lamar to conduct the case for the people. No reply has as yet been received. THAYER VANQUISHED. Thomas Sets a Face Too Swift for Him. The match game that was arranged to come oil in the Foley billiard tourna ment last night between Thayer and Clow failed to materialize so far as Clow was concerned. He was unavoidably detained at Minneapolis. Thomas was substituted, and the game went on. Thomas played steadily through out, accomplishing his 300 points in forty-six innings, making an average of 0, Thayer made 210 points. Us seemed to be not in his usual perfect condition. Thomas came to the hall apparently loaded with pyrotechnic shots, ami seemed disposed to discharge them with the slightest provocation. He is certainly one of the most graceful D'ayers in the tourney, and, like Schaef lei*, his stronghold is in the line of fancy Bhots. His coolness did nat desert him, BAD COMPLEXIONS Vimplcs, blackheads, red, rough and oil;,' ,]■. / e~_ and hands, dry, ihin, aud fall;, E-j^jt and haa la, dry, baby blem'ti ■'. hair, and /\?( $ "'" prevented and cured by Ci". . vra* cvr.A Soap, most effective nk;: I _i*~\ purifying and beautifying soap i: V >Oc '•'■-' world, us well __ purest ace — *■—*-—• sweetest of toilet and nureerj l^x_)_., Sold throughout ths world. • and he was quick to see and appreciate every good shot or run made by Thayer. Thayer was suffering from* a slight in disposition, which undoubtedly helped in making matters go against him. This is the first game he has lost thus far in this tournament, but was peculiarly un fortunate for him at this time, as Thom as is now placed in, the lead. In the matter of high runs, Thomas got in double figures ten times. Among his nigh runs may be given 21, 17, 11, 12, 12, 13. The three latter were made in suc cession in the 32d. 33d and 34th innings. Thayer made doubles only four times, his highest run being 10. Thayer took his defeat very manfully, and he de clares that he will make things very warm for his next competitor. There will be no further billiard game in the tourney until Saturday night, when Wilmot will play Bunker. Clow and Thayer will meet on Tuesday night next, and the excuse of detention else where won't go again. THREE CONTESTS. Preparing for the Milwaukee Bon spiel.

WIDOWS' HOME FUND Raided by Prominent and Well- Known Parties. Cincinnati. Dec. 28.— Sensational re ports have come from the grand jury this week over the investigation ,of $-163,438 raided from the treasury of the widows' home. The grand jury has not yet reported, but it is given out on good authority that J. D. MacNeale, W. B. Burnett, Powell Crosier. W. J. Mitchell, W. A. Thompson and George M. Ltighton have been indicted as prin cipals and accessories to obtaining money under false pretenses. Mac- Neale is a son-in-law of Edward Sargeant, formerly head of Sar gent, Wilson & llinkle, school book puplishers. Mr. Sargeant is a millionaire devoting time and money to charitable institutions, and is a trustee of the widows' home. Powell Crosley was ex-Congressman Butter worth's law partner, and prominent in state politics. Burnett was also prom inent in politics, and United States at torney under Cleveland's first adminis tration. He tried Harper, of Fidelity bank wrecking fame. Mitchell, Thomp son and Ltighton are equally well known. * MacNeale was the attorney for the officers of the widows' home, and in giving tips as to when money was in their treasury to be loaned out on mort gage security, is regarded as next to Leighton in working the game. Bur nett is in New York, and Leighton it) Chicago. The names of other promi nent citizens are being freely mentioned as dupes or accessories, and their cases have been considered by the grand jury, but only six indictments are officially reported. Vacant lots were purchased in obscure subdivisions' for nominal amounts. Fictitious values were put on the same by frequent transfers to each other and to their wives. At every transfer the compensation was put higher. When' the limit of inflation was reached a mortgage was executed for many times the real value. Some of the lots are on almost perpendicular hillsides.and were recommended as good mortgage security by the attorney of the widows' home. ___ A CLEVER SWINDLER Operating Extensively Through Eastern Cities. Sax Fran- Cisco. Dec. 28.— The Asso ciated Press was informed today of the operations of a clever swindler who has been traveling through the Eastern cities representing himself as agent of the wholesale dry goods firm of Murphy. Grant & Co., of San Francisco. W. E. Baxter, as the crook calls himself, has victimized numerous firms in a great number of cities. His method of operation is to enter a wholesale dry goods house and present a card bearing the name of W. E. Baxter, agent for Murphy, Grant & Co., San Francisco, also forged letters of introduction from the heads of the firm. He states that the object of his visit is to select and purchase goods to replenish the stock of the firm he represents. He buys large bills of goods, orders them sent to San Francisco C. 0. D., and before leaving asks the favor of having cashed a small draft of $150. which amount he needs immediately for personal expenses. This comparatively small request has never been refused him. He also succeeded in having a number of checks cashed by jewelers ami other people to whom he has become indebted for tri fling purchases. Scott, Stamp & Coin company, of New York, and Otto Sutro, of Baltimore, are among his latest victims. A number of "these drafts, amounting to many hundreds of dollars, has already been sent to Nevada bank, this city, for collection, and great quan tities of goods purchased by Baxter, marked C. O. D., are arriving" for Mur phy, Grant & Co. CHILI WILL CONTEST. The Claims for Damages Settled by the Arbitration. Sax Francisco, Dec. 28.— F. Alleyne Orr, attorney for Patrick Shields and Andrew McKinstry, sailors ou the American steamer Keeweenaw, who were brutally beaten by the Chilian police in Valparaiso at the time of the Baltimore riots iv IS9I, has received notice that the Chilian government will contest the effort to have the claims of Shields and McKinstry for damages settled by the arbitration com mittee appointed under the treaty to settle the question of damages toAuier- ' ican citizens, on the ground that Shields and McKinstry are not American citizens. Minister Egan, while nego tiating with the Chilian government for the treaty of 18'J2, under which the claims for damages were to be settled by the arbitration committee, reported to Secretary of State Foster that he had asked if it would be necessary to insert a special clause in the convention to include this case. Egan says that the minister and also the siibsecretary to the minister of foreign relations assured him that it was not necessary; that no question would be raised on this point, and that the rights of Shields as an American citizen will be admitted by Chili before the arbitration tribunal. Shields' claim was for 5100,000, and McKiustry's for $25,000.* Considering these state ments of the Chilian officials to Minister Egan, the action of the Chilian govern ment at this late day in entering a plea that Shields is not an American citizen, and that his case therefore cannot come before tho arbitration commission, has caused great surprise here. «—_. HAVE WORKED FAITHFULLY And Diligently in the Interests of the Road. Milwaukee. Wis., Dec. 28.— Receiver Henry C. Payne, of the Northern Pa cific, said, in regard to the petition of the stockholders of the road seeking the appointment of new receivers, that he and his colleagues have faith fully and diligently undertaken to administer the trust placed in their charge, having in view ouly its preser vation and management in such a way as in the quickest time to place the com pany on its feet. The old manage ment has not in the least degree tried to influence the action of the re ceivers. He cited the s*and taken concerning the Wisconsin Central lease as an illustration of this. The insinuation that the receivers are incompetent needs, he said, no answer in their own communities. Ha asserted that Mr. Oakes is one of the ablest railroad men in the couutry, while Mr. Bouse is quite as well known, being the present chairman of the executive board of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas railroad, one of the leading Hues in this country. Mr. Payne looked upou the movement as a transfer to the courts of the 'Wall street feud, which has long existed between the two opposing factions of the road. He personally disavowed any intention to do anything for other than the best Interests of the company, and characterized the charges and counter charges in the Wall street controversy as mere braggadocio. Mr. Cromwell, the Eastern attorney for the receivers, did uot think the efforts to oust the receivers would mend. He said: "1 know of no receivership which in the short space of four months has met so many serious questions with i such marked success." He then reviewed * the work done by the receivers, and said: "There are others seeking the places of the present receivers. We understand that all in terested in the company, save the Ives faction, are opposed to this movement." Mr. Payne aud Mr. Cromwell left to night for St. where they will, with ■ Mr. Oakes. hold a conference with the ■ employes of the road iv relation to the proposed cut in wages. • .

Fortunately, Only One Besides Herself Partook of the Poison, and That One Was With DII-; Acuity Saved. - : ] 7---77777 : "'7-7 1 7' ■ i ' '-■ " -'> > Grand Island. Neb.. Dec. 28.— Miss Adele Egge, a young lady aged twenty five years, a daughter of one of the old est families in the city, arose this morn-: ing, mixed strychnine into a batter of cakes, baked them aud ate of the food. She lived with her widowed mother, Mrs. Augusta Egge, a brother and a sister in a home of their own in this city. The mother and son had not yet arisen, but her sister. Miss Margaret Egge, came into the room where she was eating her breakfast and also began to eat. Margaret noticed that the cakes were bitter, and questionhd her sister the reasou therefor. The young lady answered with a smile that it was better thus" for all of them. Her sister became alarmed, a doctor was called, who iv turn called assistance. Five minutes after the arrival of the physician Adele was a corpse, having died in intense agony. The youngest sister was given an emetic, which acted promptly and she was "saved. She had not partaken of a fatal quantity. The deceased had always been of a bright, cheerful disposition nnt'l the widowed mother and the family's money became tied up in the bank which failsd. There upon the family became quite distract ed. It is clearly evident that the un fortunate girl had intended to poison all the members of the household. After having taken the strychnine she pre pared more cakes for them and urged her sister to eat. Just before death came she said she was glad she and her sister were out of misery, but was sorry her mother had not partaken of the deadly food. SAN DOMINGO OUTRAGE. American Sailors Shot Dowm by Soldiers. New York. Dec. 28.— The steamship G. W. Clyde, from Turk's island, which arrived here today, brings report ot an outrage inflicted on the crew of the American schoonerHenryCrosby, which, having lost her bearings, put into the port of Old Azua, San Domingo. The first officer and four seamen got into the boat and pulled for the shore. When about three hundred yards out a file of soldiers in the uniform of the Domini can government came running down to the beach, and. leveling their carbines at the men in the small boat, fired. One of the rowers threw up his hands aud fell over into the bottom of the boat. The others paused in surprise and af fright, when suddenly another volley was sent among them by the soldiers on shore. This time the first officer was struck. The other three sailors turned the boat about and desperately pulled for the schooner. The men were taken on board, when it was found that the first officer had leceived a bullet in the shoulder, and the seaman was struck by several balls. The bad wound in the back made it doubtful if the man would recover. A report of the affair has been made to the United States government by the consul general at San Domingo city. AFTER THE JURY. Deliberate Attempt to Tamper With the Coughlin Jury. Chicago. Dec. Martin Burkes connection with the alleged conspiracy to kill Dr. Cronin was the point on which the prosecution in the Coughlin trial created its testimony today. Jonas Carl sou, the owner of the Carlson cottage, was called to the stand. Carlson's testi mony did not differ materially from that given by him on the former trial. Upon cross-examination the old man became ill-tempered, and the defense experi enced considerable difficulty iv getting him to answer questions. The Coughlin case sustained another jury scare today. What may prove to be a deliberate attempt to tamper with the jury in open court was brought to light. This time the supposed emissary of the conspirators is a short, heavy woman, with coarse and heavy features. It is known that she has been making remarks against tbe character of Mrs. Foy ever since that state witness was on the stand last Friday. With the sus pected woman are , associated in the minds of state officers, a vulgar-looking man of low stature aud heavy build, and another woman of like beauty. The prosecution received this start ling information through two different sources. One of the jurors informed the state officers a few days ago that a woman, who had been in constant at tendance at the trial, was acting sus piciously. He believed she was trying to communicate with him by means of certain signs made by the hand. Today Hie woman was barred from the court room, and a watch is being kept upon her and her companions. Mrs. Carlson, the wife of the owner of the famous cottage, gave substantially the same evidence as her husband, uothiug of importance being brought out, however A Woman in the Case.

Dec. 28.— Attorney Wade addressed the jury in behalf of the pris oner in. the Prendergast trial today. , Mr. Wade's address created consider able interest because of his introduc tion of the quaint practice of address ing the jurors individually. He closed f with an eloquent plea for his .client's life. " Succeeding Mr. Wade, Attorney .Trade made the closing speech for the 'prosecution. His address was eloquent, -and at times bordered on the sensa tional. In pleading for a death sen tence, he said: - "The Harrisons would be the last to ask the execution of an insane man. The "question is. are we to live under the s;ars and stripes or the red rag of anarchy?" 7 "I was not animated by malice; I swear before high heaven that I was not; you are my. murderer if I die.". This was the language with which Prendergast inter upted Mr. Trade to day. For four, hours Mr. Trade had been speaking, growing more and more earnest and personal. As the afternoon wore away he assailed the prisoner with all the invective at his com mand. As the assassin spoke Mr. Trade turned the incident to account by asking the jury: "Is he insane now? Does he act like an insane mail?" The lawyer also alluded to the day of the funeral, and the fear that the prisoner showed when the procession passed the jail, and the prisoners shouted "Hang Prendergast." Mr. Trade said that even these men accused of crime re sented the act of Prendergast, and the prisoner broke out with: "Yes, they were friends of Harrison whom he had pardened out of the bridewell." Mr. Trade proceeded to goad the in furiated prisoner by alluding to -him as a coward, and once more the assassin sprang to his feet and shouted: -•iou are the coward: you deserve to be hung." Later, when a sarcastic allu sion was made to Prendergast's ambition to be corporation counsel and the re mark made that he was unfit for the position, the prisoner lost his temper again, and shouted: "I am fit— lam fit for any job you are, Trade." The court told him to keep quiet, and he subsided. Mr. Trade will finish his argument in the morning, and the case will go to the jury by noon. DESERVED IT ALL.

Montgomery, Ala., Dec. 28. — A special from Troy says: At Brantly, a town twenty-six miles below here, on the Georgia Central extension yester day, a negro named Mack Segars met a youug lady, the daughter of a well kuowd farmer of that section.

The wonders of architecture, the glories of nature, the triumphs of art, all combined and gathered from - — OP— Make up that remarkable work which the GLOBE is now offering to its readers. SIGHTS AND SCENES OF THE WORLD is the title of this magnifi cent series, and a better name could not be se lected, for it expresses fully the almost unlimited scope and character of the work. Think of a collection of three hundred and twenty perfect views, of large size and unequaled workmanship, being sold at such a price! But this is an unusual season. Labor is cheap, paper is cheap, and even art work is cheap in price. There fore, the GLOBE, taking advantage of the necessi ties of these hard times, is able to offer to its readers this greatest of all premiums at the mere price of handling only. We ask this of those of our readers who have not seen these portfolios. Do not confound this with the usual run of newspaper premiums. It is not in the same class. These are works of art, and of the highest merit. , We request you to ex amine them carefully, and to inspect the character of the selections, the quality of the workmanship and material, and to read some of the interesting descriptions. Then compare them with some of their would-be competitors, and you will be fully convinced of their ABSOLUTE SUPERIORITY SIGHTS AND SCENES OF THE WORLD con sists of a magnificent collection of 320 photo graphic views, 11x13 inches in size, ot famous places in all parts of the world. With each view is a very interesting description, giving historical and other data, intended to convey a thorough un derstanding of the subject represented. These photographic views are bound in parts, there being TWENTY parts altogether, each one containing sixteen views. These several parts may be ob tained by our readers by bringing or sending to the Coupon Department of the Globe THREE cou pons, such as may be found upon the first page"of this issue, together with ten cents, upon receipt of which the part called for will be mailed by us to the address given. THE BACK NUMBERS. We have been trying to give you fair warning to begin before the prices advanced on the "back numbers." The first seven parts are now "back numbers." We still honor the Coupons for those parts if you have saved them, but if you have no Coupons you can obtain any or all of the first seven parts for Twenty-Five Cents each without Coupons. By securing them and cutting out Coupons here after, you can get the remaining 13 parts at 10 cents each. ;.V. Summer's 40 Hours Away.
