Admiral Walker Speaks Concern-
ing Our Coast Defense.
EL PASO GETS A FIGHT
"Corbett Hu Retired” So We Can Only
See a Tight Between Maher and Fitz-
simmons—Frank 31avin Eas Accepted
Maher’s Challenge and Will Deposit a
forfeit of $5#0 Today.
Washington, Nov. 15.—Admiral
Walker adds his testimony to that
of General Miles, concerning the
weakness of the government coast
defenses. He says as follows: "We
are not prepared today to engage in
a war with any first class powers;
we are in the same position that
China occupied in her recent strug-
gle with Japan. We cannot main-
tain an offensive or defensive atti-
tude against any one of half a dozen
foreign countries. It is true New
York and San Francisco are better
protected than other commercial
cities, but even they would be help-
less against the assaults of a dozen
powerful ironclads. The remaining
cities have no protection whatever;
congress ought to make liberal ap-
propriations for coast defenses and
for additional ships of war.”
EL PASO GETS A FIGHT.
New York, Nov. 15.—William
A. Brady has received the following
dispatch from Dan Stuart under an
El Paso date: "I have the spot.
Has Corbett retired?”
Brady wired back: "Corbett has
retired. Maher will fight Fitzsim
mons on the spot."
The place secured by Stuart is in
Mexico, just across the border. If
Fitzsimmons will agree to fight
Maher, a great fistic contest will be
New York, Nov. 15.—Frank P.
Slavin has issued a formal accept-
ance of Maher’s challenge and will
today deposit $500 as a forfeit for a
battle for $5,000 a side in England
or America. John J. Quinh, Maher’s
backer telegraphed from Boston
that he would cover Slaviu’s forfeit
as soon as he returned to New York.
San Antonio, Tex., Nov. 15.—
Fitzsimmons and Julian arrived
here today. Julian said he had
received a telegram from Dan
Stuart saying that he had made
satisfactory arrangements for a bat-
tle ground between Corbett and
Fitzsimmons. Julian said Fitzsim-
mons had signed a new agreement
to fight Corbett at El Paso for a
purse of $20,000, hung up by Stuart
and a side bet of $10,000, and Stu-
art would go to New York and
force Corbett to either fight or back
MORE ABOUT THE “HEALER.”
Denver, Nov. 15—Although it
is generally believed that the
whereabouts of Francis Schlatter,
"healer,” is known to his closest
friends in this city, the federal au-
thorities have not succeeded in lo-
cating him. The case against the
men who advertised to sell,and sent
through mails, handkerchiefs which
they claimed had been blessed by
Schlatter and would cure all ills,
has been continued until Saturday.
In the meantime efforts to find
Schlatter, who is wanted for a wit-
ness, will not be abated. A great
crowd of afflicted persons seeking
treatment at the hands of the
"healer” assembled again this
morning at the residence of ex-Al-
derman Fox and many were sorely
disappointed because he did not re-
sume his labors. It is generally
believed that Schlatter is with
friends not far away and not un-
likely that he has begun another
Kansas City, Nov. 15.—A special
to the Star from Beatrice, Neb.,
"At 9 o’clock this morning a man
came in over the Union Pacific,
went direct to hotel and registered
as Francis Schlatter of Denver, in
plain hand-writing. He went to
bed and asked not to be called un-
til 3 o’clock. The clerk says he
distinctly resembles a picture of
Omaha,Nov. 15.—A special to the
Bee from Beatrice, Neb., says a
man who registered there as Fran-
cis Schlatter, is not the alleged
healer who disappeared from Den-
A BIG BOAT.
Galveston, Tex., Nov. 15.—The
steamship Kintuck, from Cardiff,
which arrived today, is the largest
steamship that ever entered this
port. The vessel is 410 feet long
and has a net registered tonnage of
2880. She was built at Belfast and
was launched three months ago,
tnis being her maiden voyage. She
comes for cotton.
FLY WHEEL BURST.
Albany, N. Y., Nov. 15-—The
monster 20-ton fly wheel in the
power house of the Albany railroad
busrt this evening and the hurling
fragments inflicted injuries, from
which James Pied died this even-
THE BANK ESCAPED—THE SHERIFF
Woodsfield, O., Nov. 15—An at-
tempt was made early this morning
by four men to robjhe Monroe
county bank. They drilled holes
in the vault and destroyed the lock,
but failed to get in. Just before
they began work in the bank Sher-
iff J. P. Keyser had occasion to go
to the stable in the rear of the bank
and while walking down the alley
four cracksmen pounced upon him,
bound and gagged him and robbed
him of $60 They then placed him
in the stable where he was found
THE ATLANTA EXPOSITION.
Atlanta, Nov. 15.—The exposi-
tion was turned over to the men of
Massachusetts today, with Gov-
ernors Hastings of Pennsylvania,
Lippitt, of Rhode Island and At-
kinson, of Georgia as interested on-
lookers. Gov. Grcenhalge and
staff were tendered a special
reception at the Cap-
itol City club last night
and this morning escorted to the
Massachusetts building, where
Governor Atkinson welcomed the
visitors. Governor Greenhalge
responded. Curtis Guild of Boston
also spoke and the state building
was formally tendered to the Expo-
GOLD FOR EUROPE.
New York, Nov. 15.—Lazard
Frerts will ship $i,25o,ooo gold to
New York, Nov. 15.—Lazard
Freres lias withdrawn from the sub-
treasury for shipment $1,250,000
gold to bo forwarded tomorrow
Sub-treasury officials have been
informed by L. Von Hoffman anc
Co., that they will not withdraw
today $1,000,000 gold which was
ordered by them this morning.
CONFIRMS HIS WORDS.
Chicago, Nov. 15,—The Associ-
ated Press today received the fol-
lowing from Dr. M. M. Manga
Sarian, leader of the society of ethi
cal culture in this city, and one o:
the most eminent and best known
Armenians in the United States
"Very recent massacres of Ar-
menians, reported from Trebizonc
Ezeroum, Moosh and Diaribekir,
fully confirm the words spoken by
the Turkish commissioner general
to the Worlds Columbian Exposi
tion, to llakki Bey: If we (Turks)
cannot have their country, we shall
see that you (Armenians) don’t get
it. There is verv little doubt the
Turks believe their days are num-
bered and are therefore determinec
to exteminate the Armenians root
and branch, before they themselves
have been finally and forever driven
out of the civilized world. If Eu-
rope is to act at all, it must act at
once, for soon it will be too late to
undertake the salvation of Armenia
as there will be no Armenia left to
Constantinople. Nov. 15.—It is
announced that three prison officials
of Moosh, dismissed some time ago
upon the demand of the British Am-
bassador, owing to maltreatment 0
prisoners, have been reinstated.
The British charge-d’-affaires, Hon.
Michael Heibert, has demanded of
the Porte that they be again dis-
There has been rioting at Sivas,
which was attended by great blood-
shed, but order has been partially
restored, and Turkish officials are
protecting foreigners there.
Albanian regiment and a Tripoli
regiment at Yldiz, Kisok, has not
been confirmed, although it is well
known that there has been bad
blood between the guards at the
palace ever since the Tripoli regi-
ment furnished the sentries instead
of the Albanians, as a result notes
were left with different palace offi-
cials, saying their lives were in
danger, and that there was a plot
to assassinate the Sultan.

says: "A narrow gauge box car

The fire gained such headway that
it was impossible to extinguish it.
