WI1L TRY TO CLAIM THE FORFEIT. Corbett He Will Send the New Koalauder to the Manner of Overtm'eg liejectrd by Julian- Some thing Sensational Was Expected. HOT SPRINGS, Ark., Oct. Unless Bob Fitzsimmons recants and through his manager, Martin Julian, accepts the extraordinary condition which con- fronts the fight situation here, there will he no contest between Corbett and Fitzsimmons, xinless it be an impromtn one, shorn of offerings, ring rules, referee or seconds. For Corbett says that unless Fitzsimmons acts the man and accommodates himself to circum- stances, "he will send him to a hospi- tal" the first time that he meets him, and that he will go quite away out oi his scheduled theatrical route to meet the attenuated Coruishman. There has been a conference between Dan A. Stuart, Joe Vendig and the fighters, the latter by proxies, Brady for Corbett and Fitzsinnnons' repre sentatrve being his brother-in-law, Martm Julian. The ruling of Chan- cellor Leatherman will be taken before the supreme comt by the attorney gen- eral and the tribune of last appeal may consume several clays in handing down a final hearing. In view of this fact and anticipating a favorable decision, Dan Stuart called the parties in inter- est together and stated the conditions. Mr. ytnart wanted a postponement till Nov. 15. He argued that oven if the court of final revolt fhe decision of the chancellor it would take that long to restore confidence and get the crowd to Hot Hpriugs Brady, tor Corbett, was willing. Julian was not. Despite the tact that Corbett went into training a week before hih prospective opponent, Julian contended that his man was "too and thai to train for several days after the orig- inal time would militate against the physical condition of Fitxsimmous The proposition was then made to the men fight in private for the main stake, a side. Here Stuart interjected an offer of an additional Brady was again willing, but Julian demurred. He opined that the club, if it pulled the nght off on Oct. 81, would have to make good its full promise of In all equity, in the face of the en- tanglements which have beset the path of Dan Stuart and Joe Vendig, "this. cannot be done. Where, a mouth ago, hundreds of excursion parties were be- ing arranged for the trip to the fight, there are none to-day Stuart asked for time. Corbett granted it. Fitz- simmons has exacted his full pound of flesh. As matters stand at this mo- ment, to use the words of Howard B Hackett, the highest pugilistic author- ity in America, Corbett wants to fight, Fitzsimmons does not. The fight is di- vided between Little Rock, Hot Springs. and Corpus Christi, The local part of it is before the supreme court at Little Rook, while the pugilistic is on long range between Corbett in Hot Springs and Fitzsimmons in Corpus Christi, represented respectively by their man agers. There is even more doubt from indications at this writing about an agreement between the fighters than there is between the courts. Governor Clarke was expected to throw a bomb with sensational effects. It has been broadly intimated that he has one loaded and primed ready to hurl, and the general opinion was that it would be a military missile He has not yet thrown it, however, and the in- dications now are that he concluded to be a little more careful about handling it than was supposed two days ago He has concluded to await a deliverance from the supreme court upon a review of Chancellor Leatherinau's decisions It's no go; Corbett Fitzslmrnons will not fight in this city. What Gov- ernor Clarke has been making such a display at doing Fitzsimnious has done easily and without such flourish of trumpets. The Florida Athletic club hus declared the contest between James J. Corbett and Robert Fitzsimmous off. Martin Julian, Fitzsimmons' mana- ger, refused to agree to the postpone- ment of the date, as desired by the club. He said Fitzsimmons had trained to fight Oct. 81 and was unable to train two weeks longer; moreover, Fitzsim- mons had contracted to fight Corbett and was unwilling to change the fight to a boxing match for points. It is given out that Julian will have Fitzsimmons, on the 31st, where his contract stipulates the fight should oc- cur, and claim the forfeit of This is the latent status of the case and the most decisive knockout in the whole proceedings Any amount of dis- gust and disappointment is visible on all sides over the turn affairs have taken. The programme now is to sub- stitute Peter Al aher for Fitzsimmons in a contest with Corbett and another man to be found will be depended upon to entertain Steve O'Donnell. Esuaped Fiom tier Guards. HUNTINOTON, W. Va., Oct. Polly Lambert, the woman who shot Saneko Corah, an Italian stonecutter, at Bnrk, last Friday, made her escape to the woods while being guarded by five men. It is claimed that the guards went to sleep and the woman stole quietly away. Eight Men Seilously Injured, ANDERSON, Ind., Oct.

BITLER, Pa., Oct. closing sessions of the meeting of the Presby- terian pynod of Pennsylvania was crowded with business. The report on temperance, which had been laid aside for future discussion, came up. Every- thing in the report seemed to have the Unanimous approval of the synod, ex- cept the recommendation relating to the use of unfermented wine in the sac- rament of the Lord's supper. The address of the day, and, in fact, of the entire nieetii-g, was made by Rev. Dr. J. D. Moffat in the interest o'f Washington and Jeffersonr college, of which he is president. Rev. Dr. R Hunter had read the report of the com mittee appointed to visit that inst tu tion aud had highly commended what he had found there. The report on to1 eigu missions was presented by Rev.

Ethelberfc Warfield pre- sented the report on home mi-sions. He approved of the work of the women, aud appealed for more money for the work of the boaid The pies- byteries of Butler, Philadelphia, North Hhenango, Pittsburg and Westminster constitute the roll of honor this year The complaint of Rev.

The threat- ened strike in this part of the coal re- gion has been a complete failure. Less than one-third of the miners called out have quit work, and those struck are in consequence ready to return as speedily as possible.

Will Not Jofn the Strike. TOWANDA, Pa., Oct. The acft ooal miners are all at work this re- gion and wiH the rtrikt The Durrant Case May Go to the Jury Next Week. IMPORTANT EVIDENCE TO COME. The Impression Now That the Defense Has Materially Strengthened the Piosecntlon'g Op- penhelm a Disappointing Witness. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. de- fense in the Pnrrant trial is practically closed. Another witness may be exam- ined and then the prosecution will be- gin the introduction of testimony in re buttal. Although nmch important evi- dence for the prosecution is yet to be 'submitted the case will probably go to the jury at the close of next week. The impression now prevail that the defense materially strengthened the prosecution's case by failing to estab- lish a single fact that Attorney Deuproy, in his opening statements.said he would show. Although he announced that an alibi would be proved, no witness ap- peared to swear that Durrant was else- where than at Emanuel Baptist church when Blanche Lemoni was murdered. Failing to show that Duirant was not at the church the defense has attacked the creditabihty of the witnesses who testified that they saw him in thot vicinity in company with Miss Lemont Dr. B. C. McDonald was called to give expert testimony on the halncina tions of the elderly women. He ad- mitted that in a time of great excite- ment over an extraordinary crime elderly women often became possessed with the delusion that they had knowl edge of the existence of alleged facts. He denied, however, that .elderly women were more likely to have such hallucinations than anybody elhe. The question was plainly tor the purpose of throwing discredit on the testimony of Mrs Leak and Mrs. Vogel, two of the strongest witnesses of the prosecution. Pawnbroker Oppenheim proved a dis- appointing witness. He made several conflicting statements, among which the assertion that it was in the after- noon Instead of in the morning that he tried to pawn a ring at Oppeuheim's. The defense sought to show by R. N. Lynch, Rev. George Gibson'a pri- vate secretary, that he gave Miss Cun- ningham, a newspaper reporter, the first clew to the fact that Mrs. Leak had seen Durrant aud Miss Laniont enter the church on the afternoon of April 8. The object of the question was to impeach one" feature of Mrs. Leak's testimony and to show that Rev. in his zeal to convict Durrant, had been instrumental in making pub- lic damaging evidence anainst him. Lynch said he did not tell Miss Cun- ningham of what Mra. Leak had seen, as at that time he did cot know that Mrs. Leak had any information on the case. Attorney Dickinson was sworn, and took the stand himself for the purpose of identifying a leather strap bearing Blanche Lament's name, which he had said was sent to him by mail last July by unknown parties. There was ob- jection to the admittance of the strap as an exhibit The court withheld the ruling on the question until to-day. Fatally Shot In a Quairel. SETJMA, Ala., Oct. fatal shoot- ing affray has occurred at Uniontown, Perry county. The city marshal, Robert Britton, and V. G. Metzger, a merchant, had an altercation over some trivial matter at an early houi, but did not come to blows. Later they met again in front of Metzger'a store and the quarrel was renewed. Both men drew and commenced firing at each other. Britton fell on the pavement and was carried to his home, where his death is momentarily expected. Metz- ger was shot in the head, but will live. Cause For Much Rejoicing. TIFLIS, Oct. received here from Ezeroum, Armenia, say that the issuing by the sultan of the irade has caused great rejoicing there. Thanksgiving services have been held m the cathedral and rigorous measures for the protection of the Armenians against the Kurds aud Turks have been adopted. Memorial Church Consecrated. BERLIN, Oct. Ernperoi Fred- erick memorial church has been conse- crated in the presence of the emperor and empress, who subsequently attend- ed the unveiling of the monument erected to the memory of the late Em- pi ess Augusta Bioke Two Itoad Records.

Furyman has wheeled the double cen- tury course from Buffalo to Erie, Pa., and return, 200 miles, in 11 hours. 58 mmutea, 15 seconds This breaks both the state and American bicycle road records. ______________ Fought With a Wildcat.
