THE CHAMPION IS ON HAND, He Went Into the Lobby of the Hotel ai#d Awaited the Minions of the law, but They Came Not—Latest Gossip About the Bis Fight. HOT SPRINGS, Oct. 17.—Excitement in Hot Springs is still at fever heat. The F.ttitudo of Governor Clark toward the proposed Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight has been the sole topic of discussion on the streets and in the business offices of the city. The original talk of Governor Clark served only to intensify the public feeling. Everybody was anxious to know what was going to occur, particularly when it became knrwn that Corbett would arrive in town. A bombshell was exploded when it was learned that Brigadier General C. P. Taylor, in command of the state troops, and George Neely, captain of the Neely Rifles, had arrived and had instructions from the governor to see that Corbett and Fitzsimmons did not meet in Arkansas. Shortly after General Taylor's arrival ho was asked what his purpose was in coming to Hot Springs. "To set that no prize light takes place between Corbett and Fitzsimmons," was the reply. "I have brought letters of in- JOE VENDIG. etruction from Governor Clark,'' he continued, "to Sh<yiff Houpt, Judge Duffie and State Attorney Teague. They will act under those instructions. l am invested with full powers to stop this contest in its incipiency." 'Under what law or by what authority of law?" was asked. "I know nothing about the law. I am acting under instructions. I do not consult my own feelings in the matter. To indicate my personal preferences I will tell you that I had obtained my ticket to the fight at Dallas and intended to go there to see it myself. The governor," he continued, "acts under the law of 1838. That law was passed in times of border terrorism and outlawry, when the sheriff stood in with the outlaws and the governor was empowered with rights perhaps never before conferred on the civil head of any state." A few moments later Manager Vendig approached General Taylor, and the two men exchanged a cordial greeting. "Circular Joe's" Statement. The general told Vendig his1 mission. Vendig replied: "The governor seems to have been laboring under a misapprehension of our intentions. The Florida Athletic club did not come to Arkansas to make an invasion. Individually and collectively we are all law abiding and have had and have now no intention to violate the laws of the state.' We come to Hot Springs at the earnest invitation and solicitation of its chief executive officer and attorney, with a promise of protection and the understanding that no statute of the state law shall be infracted. When we discovered that a finish contest was a misdemeanor un3er what we understood was the law, we changed- the articles of agreement from a finish contest to one of a limited number of rounds. Here are the new articles of agreement." Here Vendig handed the general the new articles of agreement, which read as follows: "The Florida Athletic club, party of the first part, and James J. Corbett and Robert Fitzsimmons, parties of the second part, hereby agree to abide by the conditions of this contract, which are as follows: "First.—The parties of the second part agree to box 25 rounds under Marquis of Queensberry rules, with soft gloves which shall weigh not less than five ounces, on Oct. 31, 1895, at Hot Springs, Ark. "Second.—The party of the first part, In consideration of such services, agrees to pay said parties of the second part the sum of $41,000. "Third.—This money shall be deposited and shall be paid to the contestant who shall be declared winner in scientific points of the above mentioned 25 rounds boxing contest. The party of the second part who is not named as the winner shall have no interest whatever in the aforesaid purse. "Fourth.—The referee is hereby vested with full power to stop this contest whenever, in his opinion, it becomes brutal. " "W. A. BKADY, : "For James J. Corbett. "JOSEPH H. VENDIG, "Manager Florida Athletic Association." The general read th,e articles and returned them with the statement that he bad seen the substance of them at Little Rock. The general was then called to a conference with the citizens' committee, the prosecuting attorney, Judge C. V. Teague and Chancellor Judge. Feather-i w g s e f c . ' ^ i - ~ % \ In the committee room was also Judge J. D. Kimball, who had returned from a conference with the governor, to whom he submitted the new articles of agreement and with a view to a cessation of hostilities until the matter could be passed upon by the courts. It was understood that upon the arrival of Corbett he would be placed under arrest. Corbett came into the city at 8 o'clock and received an ovation. He was driven to the Arlington hotel with his wife and party. After obtaining a room he appeared in the hotel rotunda and was quickly surrounded by a crowd at a respectful distance. He was evidently awaiting tk» arrest, but it was not made. Ho fiDall} walked away. Judge Kimball said that the programme arranged is to arrest Corbett upon the charge of a threatened breach of the peace and require a peace bond. The bond will be refused, and the case will come up before the chancellor, Judge Feathermore. A habeas corpus will be applied for to make a test case to determine whether the courts or the dictum of the governor is superior. The governor cannot go behind the writ of habeas corpus under the law, and to suspend the law requires an act of the legislature in session assembled. The only way that this can be overcome Would bo by declaration of martial law, and citizens do not believe that the governor will declare martial law to prevent a misdemeanor of the sort contemplated. The .people seem to feel confident that the combat under the revised agreement will take place. A Railroad's Confidence. ST. LOTJIS, Oct. 17.—That the Iron Mountain railway feels assured that the Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight will take place at Hot Springs is evident from the conference of passenger agents at the headquarters of that company for two days past. Nearly every passenger representative ol the Iron Mountain road in the principal cities between New York and Denver has been in attendance at the conference, which was presided over by General Passenger Agent Townsend. The number ol persons who will attend the fight' is estimated by the outside agents at 30,000, and it is probable that the figure will be increased if the public become satisfied that the fight will surely take place. New Mexico Declines Without Thanhs. SANTA FE, Oct. 17.—Governor Thorn' ton, when approached by emissaries ol the Florida Athletic club, declared thai under no circumstances would he permit Corbett and Fitzsimmons to fight in this territory. He added that he had confidence in every sheriff in New Mexico doing his full duty in the premises, but if need be he would call on the national government to aid him in suppressing anything of this sort. El Faso May Get It. EL PASO, Tex., Oct. 17.—A telegram has been received from Dan Stuart stating that the Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight would be pulled off in El Paso if this city would pay the Mexican concession. At a meeting of the business men of El Paso $15,000 was subscribed to pay for the concession. PATAL EAILR0AD COLLISION. Two Men Killed and Several Injured on 8 "Pennsy" Branch Line. ALTOONA, P,a., Oct. 17.—Two men were killed, one fatally and several slightly injured in a wreck on the Martinsburg branch of the Pennsylvania railroad. The dead are: W. F. Good of Henrietta, fireman of the Martinsburg train, killed instantly; J. Q. Woodring of Tyrone, front brakeman of the water train, both legs cut off and head crushecl. The wreck occurred between the Martinsburg mixed train, hauling milk and Altoona shop workmen, and a watei train, a mile west of this city. The watei train, consisting of soveral tank cars, had been ordered to proceed to the "Y" switches near Hollidaysburg to get watei for the Altoona shops and was just pulling from a siding to the main track when the Martinsburg train came around the curve at full speed. The collision completely demolished both locomotives and derailed several of the tank cars. The passenger cars kept the track. Besides those already mentioned, the following were injured: David Arthur of Altoona, engineer ol the Martinsburg train, badly scalded and injured internally; cannot recover. Henry Blackburn, engineer of the water train, seriously, but not fatally, hurt. William Jones of Burket Station, a passenger, was thrown through a door and painfully injured. Benjamin Weyandt of Roaring Springs, .a passenger, badly cut about arms. Conductor Davis of the passenger train, escaped with slight injuries. A number of others were more or less cut by flying glass. A confusion of orders is responsible for the accident, which is the most serious that ever occurred on tho Altoona division. A Hloomer Cafe, Now. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 17.—This city has had bloomer balls, bloomer marriage and now a bloomer restaurant has been opened in the very business center of the city.

Con-ime foi Great it now The ihe pro- BERLIN, Oct. 17.—A special frj stantinople says: Said Pasha has accepted the so reform in Armenia drawn up Britain, France and Russia, an awaits the signature of the suit; scheme is almost identical with posals of last May, which, in substance, were that the governors and vice governors of Van, Erzerum, Siwas,| Bitlis, Khartut and Trebizond be Christian oi Mussulman according to the inclination of the population, but either the gpvernol or the vice governor is to be a Christian, and the appointments are to be confirmed by the powers. Local and ncrt sthte officials are to collect the taxes, andlenough money is to be retained before ij; is forwarded to Constantinople to pay the expenses of local administration. Complete changes will be made in the judicial system, torture will be abolished, thefprisons will bo under surveillance, the police will be composed of Christians and; Turks equally and the laws against compulsory conversion to Islamism will be strifctly enforced. J The embassadors of tho powers expect that the whole question will be;finally settled during the course of the Week by the promulgation of an imperialfdecree. Contrary to general expectation, the high commissioner who will be .charged with the execution of this scheme of ire form will be a Christian. This was the hardest pill for the porte' to swallow, anjl for a long time it threatened to bring abjbut the most serious complications. | A Russian warship has arrived liere. The situation at Ismid is critical. Tht> Christians are apprehensive of a Turkish outbreak. | More Turkish Outrages. | LONDON, Oct. 17.—The News] todaj prints a dispatch from Constantinople saying that the agitation there is being renewed owing to the neglect of Turkish officers to fulfill their promise of security given to the Armenian refugees; when they left their churches. -• Another attack was made on Kassim Pasha and other Armenians, when foui were killed and a number wounded.' It is alleged that the police refused to interfere. The embassadors hold identical views, but their governments are not so unanimous; hence the hesitation to use force. The key to the situation is Russia's unwillingness to see Armenia'oi'ganized with autonomy. It is a very serious fact that this last proposal reverts, with slight alterations, to the scheme of May 11. The demand for a Christian high commissioner to be appointed by the powers is dropped. An Armenian shopkeeper was arrestod on the same day as a revolutionist because he had sought refuge in a church. Ho showed tho police a Russian dragoman's card pledging him security. A policeman seized the card and tore it into fragments, at the same time uttering a curse. The Armenian protested against this conduct and received a cut from the policeman's sword. It is said that the man is dying from the effects of the wound. Several other Armenians who possesseu similar cards were treated in the sam6 manner. On account of the attitude of the police the Armenians are again flocking to their churches for protection. Details have been received pf an organized attack on Armenians by a Moslem mob at Akhissar on Oct. 9. Forty-sii Armenians were killed and a large number wounded. . e The Grapliophone Patent Salt.
