Little Ko.k, Ark., Oct. 1?,.—"There may ,
be a light at Ho.t Springs, but it won't be a j
prize fight," said Governor James P. Clarke i
to an Associated Press representative this
"The administration is committed to that |
policy, and the entire strength of 'the state, j
if necessary, will be brought iniv. action to j
carry than poii'ey out. I earnestly hope, |
however, that extreme measures will not j
be necessary. I hope that the Hot Spring's j
people will see the situation as it really is j
ami understand that 'they must not at-
tempt to bring this fig'ht off, and that Miry
will abandon the effort to do so. I know
those people, every one of them, and 'they
are my friends. I should, therefore, very
much regret to be compelled to adopt
harsh rm'thods, but the law gives me the
authority ami supplies the means, and if
the necessity arista 1 shall certainly pre-
vent the ftg'ht at any cost. The adminis-
tration decided upon this policy after a
thorough examination of the laws and al-
*mos<t reluctantly, unvlers.tand'ing as we do,
but now that that policy ha-'. been adopted
it will be religiously adhered to.
"So positive are we that we ..re rigtht in
•the matter that you can state tha<: it is
just as impossible for tlvose people to ven-
due* that tlgM at H-<>t Springs as it would
be for them to make the rain cease fall-
Govcsrn'or C'.arke declined to state what
course he would pursue should an emer-
gency arise. When asked about bis i».'~
ported intention of causing the arrest of
Cc.bt :t and PJiza'mmcn^ j - soon .is they
entered Uhe state, 'he remarked that th rt
was one of the points which 'he did not
<are to diiseuss.
Referring 'to his apparent change of front
Plivce the famous interview in which lie
positively stated that he would not con-
vene the legislature in special sv.-^lon to
stop t'he contest were they to light in the
state hou.-e yard, Governor Clarke c\-
piai'neid t'liat h1 had not at that tima fully
ej.umlned the law on the subje-t and was
not t'he.n aware of the extent of hi5? au-
•thori'ty in the premises. Upon the receipt
of Judig'e Duffle's letter he began an Inves-
tigation of the law and made ".wo Import-
ant discoveries. He found that the law of
1891 was not legally enacted, leaving the
; late without a law on t'he subj' 't of prize
tivibting. He then discovered the law of
]&18, w'hi'ch, in his opinion, invests in the
executive ample authority for carrying out
the policy outlined above. This law, how-
ever, does not refer 'to prize lights, ft in-
fers rather to riots 'and rebellion. I'nd -r
its operation the governor is allowed al-
most unMrmited latitude, and could declare
the district in which the "disturbance" ov-
eurs to be in rebellion against the state,
and could not only drive out by force .'11
t.he parties connected with the tiisturbancc
but coi'Id arrest and imprison without pro-
cess O'f law.
"You will see," said the governor, after
explaining this law. "how far my authority
as an execi.Mve extends. We could stop a
dozen prize tights without exhausting one-
half of the measures authorized by law."
The governor declined to outline definite-
ly a course of action to be pursued in pre-
venting the light, and sought to dismiss
the subject by saying he hoped the light
would, so far as Arkansas is concerned, be
declared off. Future action on his part
would depend entirely1 on circumstances.
"My position is similar to that of an Irish
commissary in a southern regiment," said
he. "The boys wanted beef and insisted
on the commissary supplying it. He did
not do so, and finally they presented liim
with a written threat that if beef was not
forthcoming by a certain date he would bo
lynched. 'Very well,' the Irishman replied,
'there's no use of supplying the beef until
the emergency arises.' "
If the light does not take place in Arkan-
sas the primary cause will not lie with
Governor Clarke. When the project v.as
first undertaken an intimate friend of the
governor's mentioned the subject to him
and asked him if he would stop it. He
then said that he would not, unless called
upon ly the local authorities. Hot Springs
had suffered great financial losses on ac-
count of the smallpox epidemic last spring,
and this contest would bring a very large
amount of money there. The people of Hot
Springs wanted the contest and would de-
rive a great benefit from it. The local au-
thorities were amjdy able to enforce the
law, and if a violation occurred the vio-
lators would be punished. This attitude
encouraged the promoters of the enterprise,
and arrangements were pushed rapidly.
Then a thunderbolt was heard. One day
Judge Duffie of the circuit court called iri
the sheriff and told him the fight must not
occur. This was opposition from an entire-
ly unexpected quarter, and a strenuous ef-
fort was made to down it In its incipleney.
The newspaper correspondents at Hot
Springs suppressed the news, and it was
told exclusively by an Associated Press
dispatch from Little Rock. Attorney Mar-
tin hastened to Little Hock to confer with
the powers, but Judge Dufiie's letter to the
governor had preceded him. and, as the
matter had been brought to him in an
oflicial way, Governor Clarke at once began
t'he investigation which has resulted in
the declaration that tlie light shall not
take place in Arkansas.
SAY IT WILL TAKE PLACE.
Hot Springs, Ark., Oct. 13.—The attitude
of the governor and the county authorities,
as shown in their expressions in the past
day or two. has resulted In a new pha.se of
the situation as regards the Corbett-Fitz-
simmons exhibition. There can now be no
possible question that it will take place in
Hot Springs October 31, 'but under a pro-
posed modification of the articles of agree-
ment. At a meeting between the citizens'
committee and Manager Vendlg of the
Florida athletic club and Mr. W. A. Brady
to-night it was agreed that there should be
no 'infraction of the state laws, and the
change In the articles of agreement is that
instead of a finish contest the men shall
box a limited number of rounds with soft
gloves, the referee being vested with au-
thority to stop the contest if it becomes
brutal. The ablest legal talent In the state
'have examined the law and say that this
•will come within Its provisions. The peo-
ple of Hot Springs desire that the -event
Shall take place. Sheriff Houpt says that
he will do his duty under the law. Cor-
bett, accepting an invitation from the citi-
zens of Hot Springs, will give an entertain-
ment here Monday in the opera house. He
will be installed at Spring lake, where he
will do his training. Fi'tzsimmons has not
been heard from to-day, but Martin Ju-
lian. his manager, is expected to arrive to-
morrow. Fitzsimmons will be "at home"
at Mountain Valley when he gets here. The
Florida athletic club headquarters will be
established here to-morrow.

the long grade coming Into West End on
its way to Pittsburg. Just as the car
started down the heavy grade the brake
broke and it was soon beyond the control
of the motorman; the speed became ter-
rific, and when a sharp curve near the
foot of the hill was reached the car made
a worrderful leap, landing trucks upper-
most in McCarthy's run, six or eight feet
below the track grade. The accident oc-
curred at a lonely spot, and it was quite
a while before assistance reached the suf-
ferers, who were wedged tightly in the
wreck, which was most complete. When
the conductor saw that the car was be-
yond control he laid down on the floor and
advised the others to follow his example.
The killed were found wedged under the
roof of the car, which had been smashed
in upon them. The escape of any of those
on the car was miraculous. The dead were
brought to the Pittsburg morgue and the
injured to t'he several hospitals.

DRIVEN TO INSANITY.
Sad Fate of a Beautiful Young Nihilist in
New York. Oct. 13.—A beautiful young
Russian princess, Vera Keknatoff, who has
been living in exile with her husband here,
is insane and confined in the Bellevue hos-
pital. Prince Keknatoff was exiled from
his native country two years ago on ac-
count of his connection with the nihilists,
and belongs to a prominent family. His
wife followed him a few months later.
They secured rooms in the house of Dr.
J. J. Sullivan, presdelent of a vigilance
league. The prince made several ineffec-
tive attempts to obtain employment. The
remittances he received every month from
home barely supported him and his wife,
and at last ceased. The rent became d*ue,
but Dr. Sullivan was lenient with him and
•allowed him to retain his room. According
to the doctor the couple have frequently
gone two or three days without food, be-
ing too proud to ben or let their neighbors
know of their condition. The young wife
a few days ago began to show signs of in-
sanity. She began to act strangely, and at
last grew so demonstrative that her hus-
band was reluctantly induced to agree to
her removal to the hospital.

Amcr.-g the multitudinous documents in
the library at FV>rt Monroe there is not
one cf more absorbing interest than the
diary of Brevet Lieutenant John J. Craven,
surgeon of United fita'tes volunteers, who |
was the physician In cSiarge of the fort
when Jefferson Davis wa>s a prisoner with-
in its walls. The diary gives a graphic ac-
count of the prison life of Mr. Davis and
contains many incidents that reflect his de-
votion to the lost * a use. Its pages are not
colored -by sectional feeling, but, on the
contrary, they bear the unprejudiced testi-
mony of a medical adviser who was not
blind to the character and attainments of
this patient. It covers a period of about
><ix months, during whloh time Dr. Craven
attended the president of the confederacy
The propellor William P. Clyde, having
on board several Important prisoners,
dropped-anchor at Hampton Reads on the
19Uh day of May, 1865. The prisoners were
Jeffer-on Davis, president of the confeder-
acy; Alexander H. 'Stephens, vice presi-
dent; John II. Reagan, postmaster general;
Olement C. Clay and others of less note.
'Mrs. Davis and her four children were also
on board the Clyde, which lay in the roads
several days before any move was made
to transfer the prisoners. On 'May 21 Mr.
Stephens and Mr. Reagan were removed to
the gunboat Tusoarora, which immediately
stai'ted with t'liem for Fort Delaware.
General Nelson A. Miles arrived at Fort
'Monroe from Baltimore on the afternoon
of May 22. He relieved Colonel Roberts of
command of t'he fort and -at once made
preparations for the transfer of Mr. Davi-3
to his prison house. Rows of guards were
stationed on either side of the route from
the engineer's landing, where "tfcA* prison-
ers were to be put ashore, to the water
'battery postern Thiat waig done to keep
'back the crowd that had gathered to catch
a glimpse of 'the distinguish; d prisoner.
The landing of Mr. Davis was undsr t'he
immediate inspection *of Major General
Hv.i'Ueek and the Hon. Charles A. Dana,
Who was at that time assistant secretary
of war. Colond Pritchard of the Michigan
cavalry, who immediately effected the ar-
rest Mr. Dav'is, wen in command of t:he
guard from the vessel to the fort. Fir-'t
came Gene ml Miles, holding the arm of
'.Mr. Davis. Following them came General
Pritchard and (Mr. Clay, wl'.'h a squad of
soldiers in I'ivc rear. Mr. Davis wore a
plain suit of con-federate gray and a gray
slo'ucihf.d hat. He loo-ked much -worn and
very haggard. He was placed in casemate
No. 2 and Mr. Clay In No. 4. In. No?. 1, 3
and 5 guards of tfcH&lers were stationed.
On the morning of the 23d of May tihe
proud spirit of Jefferson Davis underwent
a severe trial—a trial which was probably
severer than haw ever In modern times been
inflicted upon a man of such eminence. On
that morning he was shaokled. Lieutenant
Craven's story of the circumstance is as
Captain Jerome E. Titlow of the Third
Pennsylvania artillery entered fhe prison-
er's cell', followed by Uhe blacksmith of the
fort and his assistant, the latter carrying
in hl's hands some heavy and harshly rat-
tling shackles. Mr. Davis, feverish 'after a
sleepless night, was reclining on his couc'h
when they entered. Ills fowl of the day
boTare wa« «tlU lying untouched on a tin
plate near him.
"Well," said Mr. Davis as they entered,
slightly raising his head.
"I have an unpleasant duty to perform,
sir," said Captain Titlow, and as he spoke
the blacksmith took the Shackles from his
The prisoner leaped from his bed with
flushed face, and his countenance grew
livid and rigid as deat'h. 'He gasped for'
breath and clutched his throat with the
thin fingers of his right 'hand. Then, re-
covering himself slowly, while his wasted
figure towered up to its full height, appear-
ing first to swell witih Indignation and then
to shrink with terror as he glanced from
the captain's face to the shackles, he said
slowly and with deep emotion:
"My God! you could not have b'oen sent
to Iron me?"
"Such are my orders, sir," replied the of-
ficer, beckoning to the blacksmith to ap-
"Thfe is too monstrous!" groaned the
prisoner, glaring around the .room as if for
some weapon or means of self destruction
"I demand, captain, tljat you let rne see
the commanding officer. Can he pretend
that such shackles are required to secure
the safe cutsody of a weak old man in
such a fort as this?"
"It would serve no purpose," replied Cap-
tain Titlow. "His orders are from Wash-
ington, as mine are from him."
"But he can telegraph," Insisted Mr.
Davis, eagerly. "There muFt be some mis-

the wind Ibat n.ovts the leaves on the
trees, and, determining ertd the inter-
view and put t'he orders Which h:ut been
given him into eff.-ct ;u swa as possible,
he called in a sergeant and fif.e of soldeirs
from the next room. The sergeant ad-
vanced to seize the prisoner. Immediately
•Mr. Davis flew at 'him, SThEed his musket
and attempted to wren ih it from his grasp.
«>f course, such a scene could have but one
is.vue. There was a : hont, defermin-ed strug-
gle. In a moment Mr, Davis thrown
on his bed. and before t'he soldiers re-
moved their hands the blacksmith had done
This done. Mr. Davis lay for a moment
as if In a .-tupor. Then slowly raising him-
self and turning around, he dropped his
shackled feet to the floor. The clank of the
chains seemed to recall him to his situa-
tions and, hiding his face in his hands, he
sobbed passionately and cried: "Oh, the
s!hamv\ the shame!'
With his feet bound by the heavy and
rudely constructed shackles, Mr. Davis lay
on his couc'h for j-everal day^. The tray
bearing food similar to that which was
furnished to the 'hearty soldiers of the fort,
a tin plate and a ^poon, we plajced be-
side him at regular intervals each day and
taken away untouched.
Dr. Craven saw that if 'Mr. Davis re-
mained in shackles his death would soon
follow. His constitution was broken down,
his nerves shattered and hie mind bur-
dened. Accordingly, at the earnest i.-o-
lieitatlon of t'he doctor, the shafckles were
removed on the 2kfh of May. Dr. Crav. n
also recommende\l that his patient be al-
lowed the use of tobacco, and this was
For some time after his incarceration a
Bible and a prayerbook were all that Mr.
Davis was allowed to read. Newspapers
were strictl\v prohibited. On ^une 24 per-
mission was"given him to have miscella-
neous literature. On tile same day he was
informed that he would be allowed to
walk on the ramparts one hour each 'day.
Dr. Craven notked that Mr. Davis' meals
were rarely touched, and asked permission
to supply from his own table the prisoner's
food. After seme delay this request was
granted, and the* idea that the prisoner
would attempt self-destruction with a
knife or fork, should they be given him,
was abandoned. Mrs. Craven and her
daughter prepared with their own hands
such delicacies as they thought would,
tempt the appetite of the fallen leader.
Mrs. Davis wrote Dr. Craven several
touching letters, containing anxious in-
quiries regarding her husband's treatment
and his health. She had rea 1 in the news-
papers the most distressing reports as to
his critical illness and cruel treatment, and
begged for a line that would convey the
truth. Dr. Craven was not permitted to
answer these letters, and the grief-stricken
woman was compelled to bear the sus-
pense. Mr. Davis and his physician be-
came very friendly. They discussed art,
science and literature, and derived mutual
pleasure from interchange of opinions. The
president of the confederacy often spoke
of slavery. He laid aside the prejudices
of a politician, and spoke of it as a phi-
losopher, and as a friend of fhe negro.
Of all the criticisms of his enemies, there
was no other that affected him as much as
the odious, absurd and malignant insinua-
tion that he was in some way connected
with the assassination of President Lin-
coln. "Of Mr. Lincoln," says Dr. Craven,
"he spoke not in affected terms of regard
or admiration, but paid a simple and sin-
cere tribute to the goodness of his char-
acter, his hones-ty of purpose and his
Christian desire ,to be faithful to his
On November 10 .Dr. Craven was ordered
that in future, when attending Mr. Davis,
to conline his conversation strictly to pro-
fessional matters. This edict precluded a
continuance of the relations that had ex-
isted between the two men for months. At
that point the diary closes.
Splendid self-control was the element of
Mr. Davis' character that most forcibly
impressed Dr. Craven. He appeared to
have accepted in good faith the new order
of things which the great conflict and the
defeat of the south had made necessary.
"His feeling for friends and those who
were friendly toward hifn," says Dr.
Craven, "was strong, and his fidelity to
them was remarkable. Of none of God's
creatures, not even his most bitter enemy,
did he wish or speak unkindly."
