John L. Sullivan, by his wild spree at
Chicago and bis unfeeling disregard of bis
parents' feelings, seems to be losing all of
his best friends. His trainer, Wrestler Mul
doon, now talks plainly of John's faults and
foibles. John T. Norris.the Ohio detective,
is about as angry at Kilrain, who, he
claims, failed to pay him for his services,
and he is now chasing the entire pugilistic
party, with warrants for their arrest.
rtrECIAL TEI.EOKA1I TO THE DISPATCH.!
Sot York, July 15. If John L. Sulli
van could be chained up when he misbe
haved himself, and kept so until be re
formed, he would be a great man for many
years to come, and would have hosts of
lriends. The story of his behavior in Chi
cago, which was published to-day, has
turned many of his lriends against him, and
unless he mends his ways he will receive no
welcome when he arrives in thU town, ex
cept from the army of parasites which has
always surrounded him when his star was
in the ascendant.
Billy Muldoon talked bitterly to-day of
Sullivan's conduct. "He is as thorough
paced a loafer," said Muldoon, "as I ever
bad anything to do with. All these stories
about bis great love for his parents and his
generosity are the veriest bosh. A more un
appreciative fellow I never saw, and now it
appears to be useless to try and induce him
to behave himself. The sooner the truth is
told about him the better.
A Man Willi No Filial Affections.
"Shortly after the fight the telegram from
Sullivan's father arrived, and Johnson and
I had cleared the room of everybody and
then read the dispatch to the big fellow.
He didn't pay the slightest attention to it.
His indifference so enraged Johnson that
he told him he oifght to be ashamed of him
self. 'Your poor old mother is lying sick,'
said Johnson, 'and you don't seem to care a
cent. "Why can't you be a man?'
"The matter with Sullhan is that he
hasn't got any brain. After the fight the
proprietor of the Spanish Fort, a resort just
out of New Orleans, sent word to Sullivan
that he would give him 81,500 if he would
appear there once and be introduced from a'
platform to the patrons of the place. "Let
him go to ," was Sullivan's response.
The next day the proprietor called on the
big fellow and offered him
The Entire Receipts of the Place,
with a guarantee that the amount wouldn't
be less than 51,500. Sullivan declined this
offer just as brutally as he did the first.
This will give you an idea of his business
"Sullivan is a man with the lowest kind
of tastes. It was difficult to prevent him
from gratifying his low desires. That he is
giving full play to them now is clear from
the character of the locality in which he
is frequently in Chicago. As for rum, why
he loves it. He is a stubborn brute, and ft
is a mighty hard thing to compel him to do
anything that he does not want to do. This
talk about his being tempted to drink by
friends is bosh. He drinks in order to sat
isfy a craving for liquor, and not because
he is a good fellow."
Mr. Muldoon was asked regarding his
statement that Sullivan was in Canada.
"That was made in good faith," he replied,
"and if Sullivan had
An Onnco of Senao or Honor
he would be there now. "When I left him
the address of a man in Canada, near De
troit, was given him, and it was fully un
derstood that he would go directly there. I
assured him that he would he well taken
care of, and that he could remain
there and get thoroughly rested and
permit his hands to grow strong again.
He promised faithfully to do so. He was
to send me a telegram as soon as he arrived
there. I have been waiting to get that tele
gram, and the first thing I hear is that he is
acting the drunken loafer again in Chicago.
Jly interest in him ended when the sponge
was thrown up in Kilrain's corner, last
Monday, but I was still anxious to be a
friend to him. Disinterested friendship is
something that Sullivan doesn't know any
Sulllrnn's Share of tho Stakes.
Mr. Muldoon was asked concerning the
stake money, and what share of it Sullivan
would probably receive. "His share will
be mighty small," was the reply, "unless
he stops drinking. He has no right to a
penny of it, but both Johnson and Wakely,
I understand, were resolved to give him
their share of it. Under the circumstances
money might just as well be thrown into the
gutter. If it was given to him he would
probably spend it in drinking saloons
and less respectable resorts. His bickers
intended to act generously toward him, but
they may change their minds now. It is
not likely that a very large amount of
money will be given him at once, but that
small sums will be doled out to hira at dif
ferent times. I did more for Sullivan than
I would lor any other man in the world. I
liked him, and believed that if he could be
knocked into shape again he might behave
himself. I sent my family away, and
turned my home into training quarters, and
Labored Ilnrd With Him.
"When he came to me his stomach was so
weak that it could retain only the lightest
kind of food. There was a hole in his neck
big enough to hold your fist, and his flesh
was as soft and flabby as a baby's. He looked
like a man who would not live three
months. I laid out between $300 and
$400 in fixing the place np to accom
modate him, and in other necessary ex
penses, exclusive of the household bills.
My butcher's bill, while he was with me,
averaged $100 a week. I intended to ac
cept nothing for these services, but to tell
Sullivan that the only pay I wanted was to
see him behave himself and act like a man
who had some respect for himself. If hit
backers intend to surrender much money to
him while he is making a beast of himself,
I may as veil nut in my bill and get some
of 'the money."
Muldoon is pretty well tired out, and he
intends to spend a few days out of town.
The Stakes Awaltinc the Clnlmnnt.
Arthur Lumley,oneof Sullivan's backers,.
said that it depended entirely upon the
backers what amount of money the big
fellow would resoive. The entire stakes of
$20,000 belongs to the three men whoNwcked
Sullivan, and it will be turned over to tnem
in a few days. Stakeholder Cridge said
that he was anxious to get rid of the money,
but that he wouldn't surrender it until he
received a formal notice from Beferee Fitz
patrick, stating the winner of the fight.
When this notice comes Mr. Cridge will
notify both sides, and appoint a time and
place ior paying over the money. The
place, he said, will probably be in the office
of some disinterested newspaper. f
Charley Mitchell arrived in town to-day,
and early in the afternoon he appeared at
the office of the .Foftce Gazette. He was in
a snrly mood, and positively declined to be
interviewed. "The other side has been
doing all the talking eo far," he said, "let
them continue at it"
Mr. Kilrain Has Jake's Money.
In reply to a question regarding the state
ment that Kilrain owed him $2,000, and that
he was going to attach the defeated pug's
share of the gate receipts, Mitchell said that
Jake didn't owe him a cent, and thai'Kil
rain's share ot the gate money, amounting
to $3,G00, had already been serii to Airs.
A discussion has started as to the natnre
of Sullivan's title to the championship belt
The fact it,-according to those who claim to
know, that he can accept it only on the
same terms on which it has been held by
other champions. He must deposit $1,000
bonds to insure its safety, and he mnst de
fend it against all comers. If Sullivan gets
possession of it, and his backers refuse to
give him any money, it is likely the big
fellow will ascertain its value by selling it.
The Ohio Detective Who Worked for Kll

ISFECtAL TELEGRAM TO TBS ItEPATCH.1
Sfbingfield, O., July 15. Detective
John T, Norris left to-day in pursuit of
Slugger .Kilrain and party. He has requi
sitions for 20 of those who took an active
part in the Mississippi mill, among whom
are Sullivan, Kilrain, Muldoon, Cleary,
Yank Sullivan, Mitchell, Bony Moore,
John Murphy and Donovan. Norris now,
instead of aiding the sluggers to escape the
penalties of the law, is in the employ of
Governor Lowry, of Mississippi, for the
purpose of bringing them to justice.
Norris is not madt the fighters, but his
feelings are hurt Kilrain and his party
bunkoed him, and for once Norris found
himself beat, so that he swore vengeance,
and sought it in the employ of Governor
Lowry. Charley Mitchell, trainer of Kil
rain, and Bony Moore, Mitchell's father-in-law,
employed Detective Norris to get them
through the State of Mississippi and out of
any State the fight might occur in.
Whnt Norris Was to be Fold.
If Kilrain won the fight Norris was to re
ceive $500; and it he lost, $200; unless Nor
ris was compelled to go to Jackson, then he
was to receive $300. ThU the detective did
The night after the fight Mitchell came to
Norris and said they would settle in the
morning. Norris went to his room and
slept. He was aronsed early in the morn
ing by the proprietor of the hotel, who noti
fied him of Kilrain and his party's flight.
This left the detective In a predicament. He
was forced to settle his hotel bill out of his
own pocket, and received nothing for his
services. He went to Jackson on the first
train, and after Governor Iiowry had re
ceived a telegram from Governor Foraker,
recommending Detective Norris, he em

of Ohio, on or about Jnly 3,1889.
bone Singular Cognomens.
The affidavit was sworn to before "Be
corder I. Wonderhoo." The State witnesses
were "Richard Forrester," "Adam Good
sell," and "L. E. Bhant." The warrant
was indorsed by Kilrain, Mitchell and Bony
Moore, A-ho were willing to return to Athens
county with the detective, waiving their
claims to a requisition. In every State they
went, one of these affidavits was made out;
had they been arrested, Norris would have
held them as his prisoners and had the best
right to them, owing to the priority of ar
rest. The construction of the affidavit was
perfect, and was greatly praised by South
ern lawyers who read it.
Concerning the fightj Detective Norris
said but little. He claims Kilrain did all
the fighting, but that he mieht as well have
hit a sofa as to strike Sullivan. Every
time Kilrain struck the big fellow the lat
ter would smile at Jake. Kilrain was a
sick man, and returning from the fight
Mitchell forsook him.
MBS. KILRAIN SOUR ON NEWSPAPERS,
She Thinks They Have Kept Jake From
Reporting at His Home.
Baltimobe, July 15. Mrs. Kilrain, the
wife of the erstwhile champion of the prize
ring, is beginning to lose her good feeling
for the newspapers. In fact, she openly
denounces them for publishing every move
ment Kilrain makes, and she thinks that
if the newspapers had only kept quiet, her
husband would have been home before
"I believe they want to see Jake ar
rested." said Mrs. Kilrain to a reporter,
"and publish all they can find out about
him. If he did get home, and the news
papers would publish it. Governor Lowry
would then send word to the police here to
arrest him. I wish they would let him
alone and give him a chance to get home," I

New Tokk, July 15. All of Sullivan's
friends who saw the big fight at Bichburg
agree that the champion was spiked by Kil
rain in a most shocking manner. To-night
at 6 o'clock Jimmy Wakely came into
Bryan McSwyny's and turned over to him
the shoes worn during the fight by John Ii.
They are mute witnesses of what Sullivan
must have suffered from having steel prods,
three-eighths of an inch long, planned into
hisieetagainandagain by Kilrain. Tbeyhad
box toes of three thicknesses of leather, bnt
even those bad been jammed flat. The
spikes in Kilrain's shoes were three in num
ber, each three-eighths of an inch in
length from the surface and not
sharpened like spikes in sprinting
shoes, but one-eighth of an inch
across at the point. On the left shoe from
the upper instep toward the great toe, there
is a gash two and one-half inches long
which tore the leather on the uppers clear
to the sole. There is another spike hole'
directly on top of the big toe.'anotheron the
base of the middle toe and one on the ex
treme end of the big toe. The inside of the
shoe is stained with blood and shows that
the injuries inflicted must have been severe.
Kilrain must have inflicted these jabs with
the front spike of his left shoe when they
In the wrestling Kilrain got his chance
to ge in his work on Sullivan's right foot
by stepping on it when the, men came to

on theVleft side of the instep and
another n inch below it .on a line
with the second toe. There is also a spike J
bole jnst over the middle toe, and the inside
of the shoe isValso stained with blood. Mc
Swyny made the shoes used by Sullivan in
his fight with Byan, and says that
after the fight Vthey did not show a mark.
Kilrain's shoes in the late fight are also said
to be free from any evidence of their wearer
having been spiked, Sullivan's shoes will
be exhibitied to-day in McSwyny's window

rsriciAL telegram to thk dispatch.!
CHlCAGp, July 15. John L. Sullivan is
still in Chicago, and .seemsk to be enjoying
his visit. If enjoyment can, be found in
booze, John L. certainly ought to be happy,
for he has done but little else
since his arrival in the city than pour in
grape and corn-juice. He doesn't talk or
act as thongh he was in any hurry, to leave,
and in all probability be will be here during
the rest of this week. He was up bright and
early this morniug, and the turn, about
the levee he took last night with PatS.beedy
and Tom Cnrley left no traces on his face of
any evil efiects it might have caused. V
John was down town at about noon to
day. He visited a number of popular
Clark street resorts, and 'finally drifted intb
the Turf Exchange. Here the big fightetf
continued to pour in bad whisky till his
knees quaked and he couldn't tell one glass V
from two. He staggered about tne place lor
awhile, and was finally taken out through a
back door by bis mends, and went nice to
Oirrley's. Meanwhile, the proprietors of
the Turf Exchange did a great stroke of
business by causing it to be announced that
Sullivan was asleep in one of the rear rooms
of the saloon. Hundreds tof people crowded
the saloon, the sidewalk and the street, all
eager to get a glimpse of the great Ameri
can prize fighter.
Sullivan tooK a short layoff from his
spree and started out again after supper.
He proceeded to do the levee in the neigh
borhood of Curley'ssaloon, in much tho '
same manner as he did last night.
Numerous complaints have come
into the police stations asking that
Sullivan be placed under arrest or be made
to leave town. The police all make great
boasts of their ability to. keep their districts
quiet, but Sullivan continues his debauch
in spite of them.

Baltimobe, July 15. Charley Mitchell
evidently does not intend to set foot in
Baltimore, and the reason of it, it is said, is
that he has been informed of the hostile feel

than ever convinced that the Englishman
betrayed their favorite. This morning Mrs.
Mitchell received a telegram from him,
telling her to meet him at her uncle's, in
Harlem, and to bring all the "traps" with
The rumors that Mitchell would try to get
some of Kilrain's money from Stevenson,
and then take the first steamer for England,

her suspicions of the sincerity of Mitchell
ever since the fight, so when she learned of
the telegram she also packed her grip and
accompanied Mrs. Mitchell, to be on hand
and represent her husband's interest with
Mrs. Kilrain's suspicions were everything
but nllaved by a letter she received from
C. W. Hudson, a Chicagoan, who said that
he had gone to the battlefield prepared
to bet on Kilrain, but changed his
mind when he heard Mitchell
give a tip to an Englishman to
put money on Sullivan, and assure
him that they would make $40,000 on the
fight. He also declared, after the third
round, that he saw Mitchell telephoning
with his eyes to Muldoou. The "spec"
statement Hudson declared he had heard
Mitchell make was that Kilrain was beaten
two weeks before the fight.

that while be was illegally imprisoned and

the State's Attorney, who tried to induce
him to make certain statements, the facts so

of Beggs, and that in tbe conversation the
State's Attorney said in substance:

"If you mean by 'stand with you,' that .1
shall eive von testimony by whicb any per
son or persons might be convicted of the.

rSPECIAL TXXXOBAM TO Tin DISFA-CS.I
New Yobk, July 15. People in this city
got information to-day that the State De
partment at Washington had received a
letter bearing date July 12, and signed by
Johannes Haustedt, the agent of Hippolyte
in this city, stating that two French war
vessels filled with troops were on their way
to Port-au-Prince, to aid Legitime. The
ships were part o'f the regular French squad
ron, stationed at Port Royal, Martinique,
and, it was stated, all the French troops
that could be spared from Martinique were
aboard of them. The letter stated that this
was positive information, got from confiden
tial sources. It called upon the United
States Government to notify the French
Government that interference in behalf ot
Legitime would not be tolerated.
Mr. Haustedt dodged the questions about
the letter to-day. He said he did not believe
that French gunboats were going to Bort-au-Brince.
Minister Breston said he did
not believe it either.
HINTS OF COLLUSION.
A Brooklyn paper of Sunday had a long
letter, dited Port-au-Prince, complaining
that the United States Navy is continually
escorting merchant ships from New York
into Legitime's "blockaded" northern ports,
while the law firm of Tracy, McFarland,
Boardman Ss Piatt, of which the Secretary
of the Navy is now the head, acted as coun
sel for Hippolyte's agents in New York in
getting men-o'f-war off to reinforce Hippo
lyte's navy. It was also complained that
his firm is still counsel for the merchants
who are running Leeitime's "blockade,"
wbich neither this administration nor its
predecessor has ever recognized. Minister
Preston, when asked' about the matter to
day, said: "Well, perbaps in America such
a state of affairs is all right and proper, but
to a foreigner it looks, queer. To be sure.
Secretary Tracy did not enter the firm till
after the Carondelet and Madrid trials were
all over; but it is a well-known fact, never
theless, that the firm are retained yet by the
sib, tbacy's paetneb speaks.
MJvPlatt, who was special counsel for
Hippolyte's representatives in the trials,
said to-daythat General Tracy did not en
ter the firm until after his appointment as
Secretary pf.the Navy, and long after the
Carondelet and Madrid matters were ancient
bistrt. "I doubt," said he, "if he knows
anything at all about the matter, or about
our connection with it, I see no impropri
ety in representing a reputable client in a
reputable case. I have all along believed
Hippolyte's was the right side, and the win
ning side. Legitime.is only a pretender.
We took the case because most of the mer
chants on Hippolyte's side of the fight were
clients of ours and wanted us to."
The statement that the revenue cutter
McCulloch had been sold to Legitime for a
gunboat was denied to-day by John G. Bol
ander, who bought her in Baltimore last
February at auction. Stephen Breston,
Jr., the son ot Minister Preston, was the au
thority for the story.

A Bank OflUer Who Has Crossed

Washington, July 15. A number of
perplexing questions have been presented
to the Treasury Department in regard to
the enforcement of the alien contract labor
law so far as it applies to persons employed
in this country, but who reside just across
the Canadian and Mexican borders. Com
plaint has been lodged against an officer of
a bank in Vermont, near the Canadian
border line, who has his residence in
Canada. He has crossed the border line to
his business nearly every day for the past
40 years. It is charged that his employ

Columbus, July 15. W. T. Lewis, Sec

Miners, has sent his resignation to Pres
ident John McBride. He writes a long let
ter in which he goes over the labor field
and expresses the opinion that miners all
over the country will be compelled
to accept a reduction of wages, and
refers to the point that the miners
are divided into so 'many factions that
they have lost a great deal of their power.
Mr. Lewis does not wish to act longer as a
general officer, and improves the oppor
tunity to rake the K. of L.
pretty strong. He goes in a few days
as a representative of Scripp's league to
Europe. Patrick McBryde, of Pennsyl

SHRIMPS WRECKING A FLEET.
$175,000 Worth or Coal Placed la Jeopardy
by the Appetites ot the Pests.
Memphis, July 15. For a week past the
coal fleet, moored a few miles above the
city, has been in jeopardy, and only by
strenuous efforts and a large outlay of
money have the owners succeeded in keep
ing tbe boats afloat. The fleet consists of 75
barges, containing 050,000 bushels of coal,
valued at $175,000. The trouble was brought
about in a most singular and unexpected
manner. Shrimps, in countless myriads,
have eaten out the oakum in the seams of
the boats, letting the water in and render
ing the' services of a large cumber of men at
the pumps necessary to keep the boats from
sinking. The boats have been moved into
the current which washed the shrimps off,
and sawdust rammed into the leaks. Sev
eral days of labor will yet be required be
fore the fleet is considered safe.

TTaea Taey Seeded It
At a mass meeting of tbe Homestead
strikers yesterday the new wage scale was
ratified and adopted. There were but four
or five dissenting voices against it. The
strikers' open demonstration was not held.
The fires were lighted yesterday, and the
whole plant will be in operation by Satur
day. The residents of the thriving borough of
Homestead enjoyed one night's rest last
night, the first they have had for a week.
The town presented a different scene from
those the people had .been accustomed to
since the day of the inauguration of the
strike. A stranger could have
walked anywhere within the limits of
the borough without being compelled
to state his business and what reason he had
for being there. Instead of meeting crowds
of determined-looking men, armed with
clubs, firearms, etc., one could walk the
whole length of the borough without en
countering anyone bat the few regular po
licemen, who seemed to long for the former
excitement. The male portion of the town
who had been kept awake guarding their
property and interests in the event of an
outbreak, retired early, thoroughly fatigued
with the excitement attendant upon the
At Carnegie, Bhipps & Co. 'a mills the

diflerent departments, turning a screw here,
twisting a crank tbere and making a general
overhauling ot everything connected with
The first move toward a resumption of
"work was made early yesterday morning by
Superintendent C. M. Schwab, who posted
the following notice outside the mill yards:
AH mechanical engineers, laborers, etc.,
will please report to their respective fore
men at 1 o'clock: to-day, July 15.
CHEERING THE SUPEBINTENDENT.
When the first notice was posted, a few of
the men, who had already congregated, sent
up a hearty cheer for the Superintendent,
which was echoed by others down the rail
road track. In less than one hour steam
was seen issuing from the machine shop and
the gates leading into the yard were
thrown wide open. This was the
first sign of welcome to the
strikers, and those who were not ready to go
to work went inside just for the purpose of
once more re-entering the yards. They joked
and chatted with the watchmen and others,
and discussed the happy termination of the
trouble. The men connected with the fin
ishing department, who suffered the greatest
reduction, said they were a little sore, bnt
were willing to stand the 25 and 30 per cent
cut for the benefits the majority of the men
got by the new scale.
Superintendent Schwab stated yesterday
that the whole plant would be running to
its fullest capacity by Saturday. He said
it would take several days to get the fur
naces heated and complete their repairs.
As soon as this was done, the town would
reassnme its former bustling air.
The non-union men who had been hired
by the firm, and who had been quartered at
the company's hotel in the rear of the office,
left for their homes in the forenoon and by
2 o'clock all of them bad disappeared.
Nearly all of the men were skilled work
men, mostly mechanics, and came from the
East. Their presence at the hotel had been
entirely unknown by the strikers, as they
came singly and departed in the same man
ner. Upon leaving, they shook hands with
Superintendent Schwab and thanked him
very effusively for his treatment while they
were under his care. None of the strikers
bear any ill will toward the Superintendent,
with whom they are on the best of terms.
A mass meeting of all the men engaged in
the strike was held yesterday afternoon in
Monitor Hall. The latter was almost too
small to contain the 3,000 or more men, who
were very enthusiastic President Weihe
and Secretary Martin, of the Amalgamated
Association, appeared on the ground and
requested the men not to be too outspoken
in their feelings at the termination of the
struggle. The men conld not be controlled
and kept sending up cheer after cheer.
PRESENTED BY SIR. tVEIHE.
At the meeting President Weihe presided,
and made the report of the Conference
Committee. After summarizing the report
of the committee, he carefully detailed all
the proceedings of the conference with the
firm. He read the agreement and then re
viewed the scale seriatim. Each depart
ment was taken in turn and the wages to be
paid each man noted. As each department
was read off a vote was taken to ratify or re
ject the scale. The sentiment to do
the former was almost unanimous,
only four or five negative votes being
voiced. When the question to adopt tho
whole report was put,'o deafening "aye"
that could be heard blocks away was sent
up. With a wild hurrah the men dispersed
to carry the news to their wives and tell
them what wages they were to receive.
After that the scenes of Sunday night,
when the news was received, were repeated.
All the fireworks in the town were eagerly
purchased and set off.
The demonstration which was to have
been held last night did not take place,
owing to the death of John Alku. one of the
strikers who was run over by a ''Pemicky"
train at Braddock Sunday afternoon. The
executive officers also caused the men not
to have any jollification meeting, as it was
out of place.
At the meeting yesterday a collection
amounting to several hundred dollars was
taken up to defray the funeral expenses, and
the entire seven lodges of tbe Amalgamated
Association will attend in a body. The
funeral will take place from St. Mary
Magdalen Church, and the remains will be
interred at Braddock this afternoon. AH
WILL TAKE UP A COLLECTION
for the relief of the dead man's family. A
special meeting of Armor Lodge will be
held this afternoon for this purpose and to
farther consider tbe new scale.
Nearly all ot the PinKerton men who came
here from Chicago and Philadelphia have left
for their homes. It was rumored around
Homestead last night that several of them had
been engaged to watch tbe strikers, and bad
reported every movement that bad been made.
It was stated that if tbe men had been caught
they would never have been able to get back
to the city to report It,
It is not senerally known, but the strikers
had stacks of arms secreted on the hillside,
where they could be secured ata moment's
notice, In tbe event of any tioublo with 'Tints"
