Intr last night's
fight' in this city, Choynski.. fought
-against odds-and fought well. After this
J'few' will dispute Jeflries' claim to be

championship. . H&. is a clever boxer,

start. - Jeffries was decidedly rattled
until several rounds ,bad; elapsed that
? he regained his natural color and began
tb fight with' confidence. Possibly the
v idea of going against such a celebrity
as Joe'Choynski had this disturbing ef
fect. Once Jeffries did extend himself
' there 'were no signs of white feather
about him. " .
'.Choynski covered himself with glory
and has never shown ud to such dis
advantaged He is as clever and as quick
;asever, and 'last night he ""fought the
"first calculating battle he has ever been
J mlxedij in. Contrary to his' general
"tactics, he was not reckless for a min-
. ; ute, and every round shpwed that he
r'was feeling his man's power like a past
Qiaster. A noticeable change 1 in his
, attack., He fought Jeffries with his
body -well open,' and faced liim almost
-sauarelv in the Australian stvle. Since
'he met-Billv Woods in . this oA tv in 1 891
;and knocked him out, Choynski has not
- fought so loner or so well as'he dld last
v nfeht The -fact that he was not the
aggressor, probably considered by Mac
' Donald. when he rendered his decision,
Jought not to have counted against him,
for the reason that with fifty pounds
, disadvantage in weight it was 'the best
jkind of generalship to keep away , from

With bullets
A SHERIFFS FOSSE "WAS MET
NEAR VALDOSTA, GA.
An Angry Mob Was Anxious to
Stretch His Neck, But He Was
Lodged in JaiL
Taldosta, Ga.. Dec. I. Further de
tails have beenreceived of the desper
ate battle between a sheriff's posse and
James Henry, the Florida outlaw, a few
miles from tins place at sunrise Sunda
morning. .
A heavy detachment of civil officers,
consisting .of Sheriff Hawkins, of Su-
wanee county, Fla.; Sheriff Chisholmi; of
this (Lowndes) county, and deputies un
der each .officer, early ; in the morning
congregated at Lake Parkto accom
plish the capture of James Henry, who
is wanted for murder in White Springs,
Fla. Henry was.living in a small house
near Lake Park with his wife, her moth
er and three sisters-in-law. He was
known as a determined criminal and the
officers expected a hard battle.
Led by a negro guide, the posse . ap
proached Henry's house, under; the be
lief that he was yet sleeping, and that
it would be an easy. matter to secure
him. When ' within fif ty; feet , of J Ui6
hut Henry, who was far from tielng off
his guard, as supposed, thrust , his Win
chester out of the door and opened fire
on the -posse. - His first shot tore , a rag
ged hole-in" the side of Deputy James,
of Florida, , and that official went down
like a log. His companions quickly re
turned the fire, but Henry fearlessly ex
posed i himself , and a : second bullet
from- his" weapon struck Marshal Hine-
ley, of Lake Park, in the head inflicting
a probably fatal wound. : A heavy fusil-.
ade. then ensued. Shots poured from the
windows and roof of the house into the
midst; of the officers. .The latter re
treated to trees and from behind these
kept up a; steady return volley. Jt was
evident that the women in the houe
were also taking part in the battle...
Two hours of this novel duel followed,
and Henry only " surrendered when
from a chink in the roof one of his sis
ters saw a mob hustling along toward
the cottage. He then surrendered and
the officers rushed him off in another di
rection, finally bringing him into jail
here. The mob pursued, but were un
able to catch up with the officers.
An examination of the women in the
house disclosed that Mrs. Roe, Henry's
mother-in-law, had been fatally
wounded.

THE- MURDERER A BOY IN HIS

DYING STATEMENT
OF THE
MDRDERED MAN.
The Murderer Claims That He Com.
mitted the Deed In Self-Defensa and
That He Was Being Punished by
His Victim.' -' .
Dayton, Tenh., Dec. 1. Rhea county
has another murder to her discredit,
and the murderer is a boy not yet out
of his teens; not only that, but the mura
derer and the murdered were prisoners
in the county jail. ;
For some -time Aaron Johnson, col
ored, has been. an inmate of the county
Jail, charged ;with carrying a. pistoKv
few days ago John. Morris, aged 16,
alsocolored, was sent to Jail in default
of bond, charged with assault. An en
mity arose between them, which was
intensified Monday by Johnson cursmg
Morris, when i'the latter threatened to
"evenup the ihatter"' with Johnson s
soon as possiijle. The time came yes
terday at noon in' an altogether un
looked for way; '
Late Monday afternoon Dave Day
was Jailed for some small offense. Al
though searched he managed to secrete
and take his pocket knife in with him.
By some meahs Morris learned of this,
went to him at jnidnight and borrowed
it, telling Daythat Johnson had been
cursing and abusing him and that he
intended to kill. him.
Soon after noon yesterday the oppor
tunity came, and he plunged the knife,
ah unusually large' one, into; Johnson's
side. It entered between the foiirth and
fifth ribs, cut the left lung open and
penetrated the heart. It was some time
before-any pf 'the persons notified the
Jail officials. ;yho hastily summoned
Drl AbernathjV: but nothing could be
done for the . unfortunate man, and - he
died in a short time.
Johnson's dyins statement is . to the
effect that theattack was wholly un
provoked, and that he did not know that
Morris intended'to do. him bodily harm.'
On the other hand. Morris claims self
defense, and that Johnson was the better-
man and;as punishing him severely-.
. ;i';-V' :-';,' . ,
An Inqestwlheid over the remains
of Johnson last hlght,; but -the verdict
has not as yet odeh given out. Morris
does not bear ary good name and is
considered a banegrb. He is how serv
ing a long Jail sentence for- throwing a
stone and strilcifigr Claude Givens, in
flicting a very gainful wound, several
months ago, an3has figured in a num
ber of misdemeanor cases. Johnson was
serving a Jail sentence fpr whipping nis
wife, but has heretofore been a quiet,
peaceable kind of.a negro, and the gen
eral opinion isthat he was not so much
to'; blame in this case as Morris, would
have them believe. ' , .
Jailor Vaughfi is put of the city, and
his family were looking after the pris
oners during his absence Morris does
not seem grieyer over theaffair,, and
Claims he has no, reason to regret it. He
may change his mind when he realizes
the fact that he is a murderer.

- Chicago, Dec. L Charles : Warren
Spalding, ex-president' "'of ' ,the -' Glotoe
Savings Bank,'-was 4 today- sentenced to
an indetermlnaie term in the peniten
tiary. ; He was charged with, embezzling
funds of .the .Und vefsd ty of"' Illinois,; of
which he was treasurer- ?
.The court proceedings which, termin
ated in Spaldiii;s' sentence : were, of a
highly dramatic! character. Judge Hor
ton" reviewed the case in a highly "elab
orate opinion which. -he-' had prepared
beforehand.; 'One as sertion Jn tbe opin:
ion seemed i.tovunneryerpaIdtng.:--.Thds.
was when thecourt said. that. SpaldUng
admitted-his , guilt. -'-'' -'-l . ,
"I wish,' cried", Spalding, v,"td?deny

guilt!" ' . s. . r ' ; i ' ' -. !?
- Judge rHortpn 1 had . ask ed Spalding - if
he had "anything " to vsay why sentence
should 'not' be passed -onhim; - "
"Tes," exclaimed the banker, standing
up. His face was pale and he. spoke
as if laboring "under- strong agitation.
In a few rapid wordshe made denial
of ever having : admitted his guilt and
then said: ' 'Every dollarV I "-received
from the university; has been applSiedto
its benefit. I protest against this unjust
verdict, which- hIv feel.-would not have
been returned had your honor permitted
certain . facts to be considered, by the
Jury. ';Jr ' -V -' , ' ' ' ' :

which have been passed "in this: comim'U
nity. I challenge any man to stand up
before me and -say I ever did' him a
wrong. y ' -
'.'Your-honor may.abrMge my days of
usefulness, but you : cannot take from
me the honor of the past." '
At this point Spalding's voice failed
M m and he began to dhoke wi th j emo
tion. Judge Horton then Imposed ; the
sentence. . . . i ' ' I '
" It was announced in behalf of tb ex-banker-
that- an appeal would be taken
to the supreme court, pending whloh he
will be kept in : the Cook county Jail,
where he has been J confined since last
sprang. j
The charge on which Spalding! was
convicted ' was the embezzlement ; Tof
$204,000 of Macoupin credit ' bonds, ; the
property of the university. , Banker
Spalding made a etubhorn fight in the
courts in the endeavor , to preserve ; hfls
good name. Besides being in Justices'
oourts and before masters in chancery
several times,, he twice stood trial: on
the charge, of illegally diverting funds,
intrusted to hds care.. The first itime
the verdict was - not guilty, r but on the
second trial, which was on a different
count, the Jury brought In an adverse
decision. , '.. , j
The indiiotment and strbsequgnt con
viction, the romantic love story under
lying the dry details of his alleged of
fense and his self-possession under the
most trying circumstances, all com
bined to make, his case an unusually
interesting one. . ; j ' : ! ,

Paris, Dec. 1. MaJ. Cdunt Ferdinand
Walsin Esterhazy, the retired Frehch
army officer who is charged with having
written, the letter which led to the" im
prisonment on Devil's Island of Alfred
Dreyfus, the-former captain of French
artillery, who was convicted by Court
martial of selling military secrets to the
agents of a foreign power, is said today
to have acknowledged the authenticity
of the letters recently published by the
Figaro, with the exception of the one in
which the count is said to have ex
pressed the i following sentiments:; "If
tonight I were told that . I should be
killed tomorrow as Cantain of ;TJhlan.
while sabering Frenchmen, I should cer
tainly be perfectly happy. I would not

It is understood that the report of
Gen. Pellieux, who was appointed by
the military governor of Paris, : Gen.
Saussier, to investigate the charges
against Count Esterhazy, states that he
is satisfied as to the guilt of Dreyfus.
There is. however, general indignation
here at Gen. Pellieux's statement j that
he has not Inquired into the possibility
or JEsternazy naving written the mem

"With the ' tradter exftingiiished, Indian
