Kilrain Says He Will “Put Up” Today. Sullivan’s $5000 to be Covered by™Whom? Rnor Connects a Boston Mao With tie Enterprise. Mitchell Will “Probably” Arrange With Dempsey. Rattling Opening and Work for Judges at the Pelican Club. New York. Dec. 14.—Jake Kilrain, after a consultation with Charles Mitchell, today decided that ho would iro to Hie Clipper otli e tomorrow and post $5000 and accept Sullivan’s challenge. It took a week for Jake to arrive at this conclusion, but he said today that as ho had done so nothin? would deter him from meeting Sullivan in tho ring:. Mitchell said to a Globe reporter: “The gentleman who is putting up the money is a friend of mine. No it is not Mr. Fox. He has decided not to haveanythmcr to do with it. His business will not permit him to do so. Ho cannot stand bein? arrested, and so has nothin? to do with the affair.” When The Globe man asked Mitchell if the money was his, he replied: '“No, I am not putting up the stuff; lam ouly Stettin? it. I don’t want to Ii? ire as a backer of fielders, or as a fighter. I am a manager and boxer. I do not want to break the law, and I will not do so witn my eyes open.” From another source it was learned that Mitchell leaves this country in January to j-ee Arthur Wli Ie and a couple of others in Enid md who are warm tv ends of Kilrain. These, men will put up all Hie money necessary for .lake. who thus becomes Hie representative of En?lish capital handled by En?! sh trainers. Holdock Is said, be sent for to train Kilrain against Sullivan. The truth of some of th s is however, denied by Kilra n and Mitchell. Kilrain said: * The money put up w ll be that of native New Yorkers. However. I don’t see what difference it makes where the money comes from as loin as it is up. My money no matter who furnishes it, is Hood, and Sullivan will be aide to pa s it if he can win it, hut I don't think lie cun. I would not make a rn itch wild him if I didn't think I could whip bim, and I guess when the battle is over people will agree with me that I am the champion. Sullivan has s ud some bard things about me, but I won’t talk about him now. i’ll wait aud meet bim in mo fin?. I know I can whip bim aud I will make him feel so:e for the way he has talke !.” Mitchell doelines to say anythin? about his matches with Dempsey, any more than lie “would piobahlv make arrangements with Dempsey to box him IO rounds in the East aud tight him to a filii h in San Francisco.” He also said that lie would goto Chicago with Kilrain tomorrow “to begin a week’s engagement at a theatre there Monday night,’ James Keenan to Back Kilrain. [By A»soclated Pre**.] Nitw York, Dec. 14.—Kilrain has accepted the challenge of John L. Sullivan to tight to a finish for $10,000 a side. An unknown friend will cover Sullivan’s money tomorrow, aud rumor has it that Jim Keenan of Boston is the man. PEUCAUrB PLEASED. Some Battling Work with tile Olove* Last Nlclit. The Pelican Club, under new management. gave its opeuiu? exhibition last night in the presence ol a large and orderly crowd. The rooms looked well, aud the size of tho ring ensures lots of work to men who alo eager for it. The sport was good, though tho two main events were spoiled by the repeated fouling of two of the principals. Tom ii.gham was an efficient muster of ceremonies, but the next time an exhibition comes off some one should be appointed to enforce the referee’s order as to breaking. Before tho Brut event was called tho mummer announce i that'wing to the dissatisfaction over recent ffco sums in glove contests it baa been decided to invito three representatives of tho press to act in the juiluuicnl s< ats. and two G obi*. men and a Herald representative took office. A feature of the e oiling was the introduction oi To rn my Dames, who lought Tommy Warren a 63-round draw, and flurry bartlett. Hie Englishman, who stopped Jack Farrell in three rounds, Tommy Kerrigan and George Dixon were first intro,meed, and. with well padded hands, tho little fellows .sparred three lively rounds in a give-and-take fashion, which seemed to tind laver with the audience. Dtxuu stood a good deal liver his opponent and was in far better trim, but the youngster showed (levelness aud made a pretty even thing of it. Next appeared Jimmy Carney and his younger bi other, Eddie, xx ho is a well set up lad, fully as tall as hts brother aud as clever, l he work was o the lightest order, but the younger man showed that he had a clever pair of hands, f ile brothers were given a liberal round of applause. Now one of the gieat events of the evening. Frank Maguire and Faddy Kelly were ut reduced. They were pre ty evenly matched in weight, and claimed to be bantams. though they looked to he more iii the featherweight class. Maguire was looked alter by .inn Norton, while Jimmy Conley seconded Kelly. At the sta t both men were too eager, and Maguire landed on him heavily,* and scored two clean knock-down blows, drawing tho ruby from a gash under Hie r ghteye. fie tact his man on e or tty ice with his left, and it looked as ii another rouu t or two would finish it. iii the second round tho sumo conditions were hsorved. and the mon hammered away right and left, most OI belly's blows un-sing tho r mark, while Magui e broke ground prettily and show d generalship in getting away from his man. B th wine tired when the third round was called and there was a good deal mom sparring The fourth began to go all in favor of Maguire, who had lots of chan es to finish his man lie hung t ack andtowaids the end of the round Maguire wont down once suspic.ously. In the fifth round bely rush. d all over the ring after his man, and Maguire slipped down once or twice, but Hie judges a1 owed the n ;ht to continue. Kelly was by far the w’orst punished man. Hound six saw sumo good Je't hand work by Maguire, but one or two fails wore not above suspic on. In the eighth round Maguire nrohab y fell without cause, and the awarn was given to Kelly. Maguire's hands were oadly broken up. but had ha stood on his feet it looked as if his work won d have won for him, as Kelly was too weak to hurt bim. fhen came Hie event of the evening, the contest between Uri > n and Badger. Griffin was attended bv Jimmy Carroll, while a gum y sport looked alter Badger. The first round was pretty even, but at its close it was palpable that Badger was not Ha condition. Both got In some wicked right-h nders. but Griffin managed to escape ail Badger’s savage upper-cuts. Each had a mouse on tho left side of their faces, but came up to the call for the second roun I livel-y. Griffin started I to work with a will and Badger once or twice dropped his hands as if he Dad euougu of it. Griffin did some good loft- hand work on Badger’s face. Badger started to clinch to save time in the t im round, and the effect of his squeezes was apparent on Griffin. but the Braintree man st ck to hun and had him nearly gone at the call of time. In the fourth round Badger’s tactics were most foul, and he deliberately threw Griffin twice and onl. failed to lose the fight because Griffin did not w ne to win it on a foul. In the fifth the Quincy man’s tactics were too appal o ff, and the ud? sstO 'ped proceedings and awarded the decision to Griffin. WEIK, TO MTRI’HY. His Answer to the EnsU*l*maii end to Other* of tils Class. Tho "Spider” was very wrath at the published statement of Frank Murphy, and called at The Globe office last night with his usual three words. He wants to call the attention of his would-be antagonist to tho fact that his money is posted for a fight, in responsible hands. He only wants Murphy to make a deposit, to ensure his getting to weight, aud there will be no difficulty about, getting on a tight, Fina'ly the "Spider” offers Murphy $5.0 to come and spar him three or lour rounds at his benet.t, and if Murphy do snot Bant to come Griffin can have the same money: while if Griffin does not want it Ti niray Barnes can earn $26 for the same business.

Blaine Will Get There Eventually. ’lot Yet Offered State Portfolio, However. Indianapolis, Ind., Dec. 14.—The city ami State are in considerable excitement oxer frosh rumors connecting Mr, Blaine with the new cabinet. Telegrams from (New York report that the Press ana Star of that city state positively today that the president-elect has offered Mr. Blaino tho position of secretary of state, and that he has accepted it. One of the pacers announced that tho correspondence between tho two men would bo made public in a few hours. In the Cincinnati Enquirer today appears a telegram from VV. C. MacBride. in tx Rich he ait,ruts tho truthfulness of the report, “w.thout re nervation, because the information comes to me from a source not to be challenged or questioned.” Interviews regnidiug ihe matter with several of Mr. Blaine s friends in Washington, among them Senator Halo and Cong e s-nion Boutello aud Hood. are published. They do not confirm tho report, but they think it is true, because they believe that Mr. Blaino ought to be secretary of stale for purely patriotic reasons. 'Die report Is not believed here. Leading Republicans who, it is supposed, know something ot tho inside, say that they are conficient that nothing has been offered Mr. Blaine, and they have strong lea ens for believing that lie will not be in tho cabinet. It is suspected that Hie report was started by friends of Mr. Bla ne, who have evinced a determination to force General Harrison lo take him into the cabinet. "But,” remarked one of the friends of the president-elect to a reporter, "General harrison is tho kind of a man who can withstand such pressure.” A telegram from New York credits Thomas C. l’latt with referring to the story as bosh.” He does not believe that the position has been Tendered Blaine. and he says that the report was started by a correspondent of a Cincinnati paper. It was sent to every iiewsua; er in New York, but o liters who detected its character threw it into the waste basket A ropy of Hie Associated Kress telegram, stating thin Mr. ii ainu had been o cled and had acce. ted tho position of secretary ot .'-tale, aas taken to the residence of General Harrison by a reporter, mid was handed to Lrivate Secretary ilulforff. with Hie request that the pieside t-elect should be asked if there was that he would bo willing to say about it. After reading the telegram. General Harrison came from his library with the despatch in his hand aud greeted the reporter with tho remark. "i thought it wn understood that I was not to be interviewed? ’ “I have no intention of trying to interview you if you do not care to talk, general,” replied tile reponer. “I have stated repeatedly to representatives of tim press that I would have nothing to say at any time iii un uterview, .special correspondents ha e come to me w ith ques. tie s that, in oho or two iii .lances, I have ii tex en permitted th'in to ask, aud I have said t mo and again that I would not tai v upon any subject tor pu Boation. I supposed that it was understood, and if it is not I want it thoroughly undo stood all to nd that I can not hiiu will not allow myself to he placed in tim position of either affirming or d« Hying any reports that may be put in circulation by nuwspauers, Even if they should be tm , I wou d have no.

I might as well undertake to keep the public informed as to what I have in mind, aud it would amount to that if I should take up the newspaper reports every morning and s ty tins is true or that is not true.

Washington, Dec. 14.—A telegram to Captain Boutello today from an excellent source in Augusta states that no information there warrants the newspaper revival of the talk about General Harrison having off et od the secretaryship of state to Mr. Bl ilia. The Maine men in \\ ash agt on are as confidant as ever in their p.siLotious that Mr. Bla ne will go to Hie State Department. but they did not accept the rumors of detin to action current last n gilt ami this morning. ( Whenever ‘he thing drops they expect to j hear it quite as soou as the (State factories in the liewspap r o ces. Hence the despatch to Captain Boutelle thoroughly dis-j credited the gossip w th them. Ex-Governor Dingley said this morning that he had not heard of the offer and had not looked for it for two or three weeks yet. He did no! doubt the report, because it was in the least improbable, but merely because lie had got no word of it. .and if the 0 ie.r had teen made lie did not think that either Mr. Blaine or Mr. ilarrison would say anything about it. At least, he thought Mr. Blaine would speak of the matter first to his iriends here. "But if the report is not true.” he said, “I think it is ouly a little in advance of the truth. " I he only way I can think of,” ho added after a moment’s though!, thatanauthori-tative statement to that effect might get to the public is that Mr. Morton may cave telegraphed the fact to some fnend in New York who incautiously spoke of it. I ha e never had any doubt that the position would be offered o Mr. Blaine, but I did not expect it for two or three weeks yet.” The ex-governor was asked if bethought Mr. Blaine would accept. "I do not see any reason why he should not. He is as vigorous aud active as any man in public life, and is taking an acti . e interest in affairs. Ile is not the sort of a man to retire from public life there is too mu ii valuab.e service in him. I know that there is nothing in the objection that his health is not good. There are vcrv Jew men in this Hon e more active or in Dotter health th ii lie is. All these reports of ids breaking down have been without foundation, and haxe been set agoing for a purpose. Their authors, when known, have been men who are never brought into contact with Mr. Blame. His friends who are intimate xx itll iiirn have known ail along that the reports are Without Truth. I have been with Mr. Blaine within a few days. I hax e never seen ;him looking better than he does now, and thoro is no questioning liis interest in affairs. Why, it would exorcise some of these men to wa k with him. I consider rn self a pretty good walker. I al wavs walk at a brisk pace to tlie capitol from my hotel and hack. I am a brisk walker, hut I found it somewhat diftn ult to keep up with Mr. Blaine. I walked with him -onie time. He moved with a bold, firm stride, that showed Hie remarkable vigor there is in him. Ile takes long walks every day, and is in robust health. He is too actixe a man and ta es too much interest in affairs to retire, and I do not see why lie should not serve the public from this post.” Senator Hale said that he had not yet heard anything from Mr. Blaine about his being tendered the secrctar siiip of State. lie did not want to convey tim idea that he expected any such a message, but merely thai if a tender had been made lie would ho likely to bo informed of it. He added that lie felt ouite sure that Mr. Blaine would ho offered the Place. He did not sneak by any information from General Harrison. He concluded that Mr. Blaine would bo sci rotary of state under the noxv administration, because it was a most natural thing to expect. Mr. Blaine’s name was naturally the firs! one associated in the public mind with tho position. It was a place he had held creditably for a short while, and oho for which lie was most em -nently fitted. It was because of his position in the party and his pre eminent qualifications that the euator o\p cted Mr. Blaine would he offered the portfolio. Senator Fr e and Air. Reed are two Maine men who are not in as tine a touch with Hie B aine sentiment as then associates. Mr. Reed long ago made it a rule never to express any opinion publicly concerning Mr. Blaine and his affairs. Senator Frye is not quite so re Kent, and lie is said to have answered au inquiry about the rumor in this way: "No, I have not heard that news yet. It is not likoly that I would know immediately. however, for I ain not exactly in Tim Blaine King, Senator Hale would he more apt to be informed. I have expected that Mr. Harrison would offer Mr. Blaino the place, and he could not off er it to a better man. Thoro is no man in tho country so well qualified for the office as Mr. Blaino. nud if we are to have a secretary of state we may as well have a good one. It is time we had a sucre tary of state of soul* kind. Don’t jeu think so? We certainly have not had one for four ye us.” Mr. Blaine will uo doubt enjoy this hearty indies merit. Mr. Milliken and Captain Boutwell are as sure tis their colleagues that Mr. Blaiue will go in. Tho delay of six weeks which has taken place seems not to bulbel any of Hie Maine men. Nevertheless, there is plenty of tall guessing here that General Harrison will nut uudortaKO lo get along with Mr. Blaine in the , ahind. An old observer expressed a common view tonight in this way ; "It is a hal'd nut for Harrison to crack. No president over had a t uglier catenet problem than this man ha . Garfield was iii about Hie annie situation exeunt t nit ho was not as serious a man as Harrison I toll you Harrison hasn’t the ie.aper to net along with Blaine 1 here must bo a tight, and I believe the only question is. when shall it begin. It seems to DI that the ai oner ii is begun the better it will he for the administration, ll is a simpler thing to keep Blaine out than it would be to put him out. Let Harrison strike now Indole the udiniiiistrat on bas made atty enemies aud when everybody is look ng for rewads, irs let him sir ko now uml try my word for ii. the mob will lynch Blaine. But if the blow is not struck lor a year or two it wdl be bad for Harrison. flu will thou have eneuuosovery where aud they will ca cliv ruby to any standard of re ult. Besides, lf Air. Blame should go, then he wo Id bo able to march out to a jingo tune and the jingoists would all say thai he had been Mien ii, od by a timid aud puuhtii moils president.” Another phase of the matter is furnished by the delay. It is argue i that if Mr. Blame were destined to be the premier, there would have been no hesitation aud delay. 'Ihe President-elect would not have held hun off all these nix weeks, lf Mr. Blame were to receive the recognition that Ii is friends assert is due him it would havo been con fern d election nigiit Tho Indiana neo Ie have pooh-poohed tile Blame talk. They say that it is all an effort to stampede Harrison and they feel sure that it will not work. Blame and Manley Interviewed. Augusta, Me., Dec. 14.—Mr. Blaine was seen at h a residence today. Ho was very courteous. Ho had heard tho rumors atloat but had nothing to say. Mr. Manley thought it might safely be stated that tho rumors were not true, a1-though lie Do! ovod that Mr. Blaine would finally be offered the portfolio of state aud would accept.

Dec. 3, the Columbian National Bank, 60 Devonshire street, received from Washington, through the Adams Express Company, a bag containing $4000 in gold coin, which was handed over to Teller Charles G. Davis. That gentleman hurriedly examined the contents of Hie bag, closed it up and tossed it on a desk at hi* right or Jolt hand, it matters not which. Ho intended, undoubtedly, to place the gold in tho back vault at the close of business for Hie day. but as it transpires, this intention was not carried into effect. Thursday. Dec. ti, the bauk officials discovered that the bag and its valued contents had disappeared. They reported the loss at police h. ad quarters, and also employed Messrs. Cornish ai d Hanscom on the case. The Pinkerton detectives immediately proceeded to shadow such person* as had access to tile interior of the bank, among others their attention being directed to (-amuel Allen, colored, who for IS months had been employed as janitor by tho Columbian bank, having previously worked eight years in a sun Jar capacity for the New > uglaud National Bank. Allen’s movements were carefully followed, storekeepers with wh"Oi he traded were shrewdly induced to report His trans* actions.amt tim umountof his expenditures, as well as the kind of money used by the suspected janitor, were known to the Pinkerton agency. But shadowing amounted to nothing unt I Thursday of this week, when Hie detectives struck a rich lead.
