Little Ruck, txt. 31. The net result of
yesterday's operations In tho matter of tho
prize fight Is that an agreement has been
reached between counsel for tho Hot

vided the club people entered into the
agriement in good faith. Knrh one of the
opposing forces seems to lie iuletly resting
on its arms each confident of the victory?
Tho day waa replete with exciting Inci
dents in which tho militia took a loading
pirt. Ilrlgndler General Taylor, of the
Arkniims state guard, came in at an early
hour In the morning from his homo at
Fom-st City and held numerous confer
rneea with the governor, as a result of
which the state militia wasonlered to hold

companies, wa ordered to report to move

continued with renewed energy his efforts
to bnr the gates airnin.t Kllz.lnimons.snd
sheriffs and deputy aheriff were sent hur
rying to block every piiMo point of in
gress agalnat the New Kralomirr. The sit
uation tircamc extremely liidli-rous, for It
was plain to every one that Sheriff Iloupt
and rheGarltml county authorities bml
arrayed themselves on the aide of the
sporting element, and the spectacle, of
two sl.ertffs, each armed with warrants,
fine to prevent a flght the other to facili
tate It, and tbe pmhnhillty of n row be
tween the two officers over the powrulnn
of the coveted pugilist, was a very pretty
tiovcrnnr Clarke received a telegram
early In the day stating that In the race
between the rival sheriffs, lloupt had
won. and that the Garland county officer
bad met t Itzslmmona party at Marslull,
Tex., from which point the whole party.in
rharg of Houpt. had liken a special train
for Shrcveporv Lav, Intending to reach
Hot Springs by a circuitous route. Tele
gram went quickly dispatched by the gov
ernor to the sheriffs of the counties
through which tbe special train was to
Ma. These - '"grimi laid; . ''Soare no
Effort; capture mtEsimmoos ana noia turn
tor the sheriff of Pulaski county."
Thn came the information that the
Special train would avoid stops at all
point where officers were liable to be en
countered and the excitement Increased.
The governor's Information tea that the
special left Marshall at b:9u in the morn
tns;, but BO one not even the railroad
authorities knew when it wo-ild reach
theArkansas line. Governor Clarke was
greatly chagrined at Sheriff Houpt's ac
tion and said that he ought to be punished
for conspiracy, and in tho district attor
ney' office it was said that a warrant for
the sheriff's arrest on such a charge would
be npplied for.
Chancellor Martin, who Issued the
Pulaski county warrant for "Corbett's ar
rest, came to the governor's assistance and
telegraphed to Corbctt at Hot Springs that
If ha engaged in a light pending a
hearing on the warrant he would be in
contempt of court and liable to twelve
months' Imprisonment in Jail. Colontl
Muphy, one of the club' counsel, was then
consulted and it was agreed that after tho
disposition of the Hot Springs case Cor
bett would be brought to Little Rock to
make answer before Chancellor Martin.
This decision was communicated to Attor
ney General Klnsworthy, who is at Hot
Springs. Klnsworthy at once telephoned
Governor Clarke these facts and it was de
cided that the soldiers should not be sent
over at present.

HOW HOLMES tlD
Story of tho Woman Whose Hus
band He Murdered.
FEARFUL 8TRAHT OH THE WITHESS.
Mrs. Fttxel Tells What She Knows of tba
Arch-Villain; of the Disappearance of
Her Hnaband and Children, and the IJes
Holmes Told Her About Them Prisoner
the Only One In Co art Cnmoved by tha
Philadelphia, Oct. 8L Four long
hours,under the scrutinizing gaze of a court
room crowded with strangers to her, a
pale, worn woman underwent an ordeal
which well might have broken the nerve
of many a strong man. She was Mrs.
Carrie Alice Pitzcl. With bravery and
fortitude she stood the test, in spite of the
fact that her physical condition has been
o shattered by the woes under which sho
has all but succumbed that sho waa
obliged to interrupt her pitiful narrative
at frequent intervals to tccept spoonful
of medicine from the trained nurse who
attended her. In a voice broken with
grief she told the whole distressing story.
Forced a Tear from the Prosecutor.
Bow her husband was spirited away
from her and murdered out of sheer greed
of gain; how she bodo her little ones
good-bye, confiding them to the charge of
tho man Holmes in all trustfullness, lit
tle thinking that when next she should
set ryes on them the two little girls
would be lying side by sido on the marble
slab of a morgue, cold in death, and the
boy a parcel of mouldering bones. Be
tween her bitter sobs she related every
detail from ' the first meeting with
Holmes, and so affecting was tho story
that even District Attorney Graham, long
nsed to tales of misery and distress, paused
in the examination to wipe away a fur
tivo tear. The woman's physical condi
tion was such that the court crier had to
repeat her testimony after her because of
her weak voice.
Holmes Didn't Bat an Eye,
Throughout it all the shrunken, pallid
figure in tho dock who to one unfamiliar
with the shocking story would never bo
taken for the arch-criminal of tho age sat
unmoved. Not a muscle quivered, not a
lash moved, even when the strain became
so great that the hearing halted to give
the wretched woman an opportunity to
recover herself. Indeed once or twice, as
somo statement from her lips struck a
chord in his breast, a malicious sneer
played around his thin aud bloodless lips.
But never once did the woman look to
: Prisoner Still His Own Chief Counsel. '
i Tho other incidents of tho" day wore tho
reading of the statements made by Holmes
to the Boston police when first arrested
there on Nov. 1? last, telling the story of
the conspiracy to swindle the insurance
company out of the tlO.OOO on Pitzol's
life. The-cross-examination of tho wit
nesses was conducted actively by Shoe
maker and Hot an, but it was apparent that
it was really Holmes himself who was con
ducting the defense. He continued to
tako copious notes and almost momentarily
his attorneys were at the dockeido accept
ing suggestions from him.

Holmes told her that her hnshaml v.a

to i-nuaueipmaio laentiry "ferry's" body.
She next saw Holmes Sept 27, ISM,
when he asked her to let her children,
Howard and Nellie, go with him, saying
that Alice was at Cincinnati and ho would
take tho other children to her. Next she
saw Holmes Oct. 22, and he got her to pay
to,(XX to him to pay off a note, he said, on
some property ho and Pitzel owned. Sho

band. Then Holmes went to Indianapolis
to see the children, he said, but she got a
letter from him dated at Detroit in which
he told her to go there and sec her hus
band. But she, of course, did not s.-e him,
and Holmes sent her to her parents at
Galva, Ills., later.
Holracjdid not explain why her hus

took her to Toronto and told her that Pit

pher letter from Nellie, which he had to
read to her, saying that the children were
all well. The poor woman gave a long
account of her jonrneyings with Holmes,
never stopping long in the same place.
When she wanted to go to Indianapolis
to sect lis children he told her "not until
you seo Ben" llltzel. Then he safti he
had taken the children to Toronto. Then
he lied and lied and lied again and the
