announcing thut Secretary Cieorge Stev
ens, of the llolingbroke club, had of
fered a nurse of JI2.IMMJ for u light be
tween forbett mid Mitchell to take
place before that club 111 London, wus
continued by a cable despatch received
today by l!i hard K. Fox. of the Police
(Jazette from London, signed by (ieoige
W. Atkinson, editor of London Sport
ing Lite, The despatch reads as fol
lows: London, Murch 23.
To Richard K. Fox. Police Uazette, New
Itollngliroke club offers $12.Ai for
Mitchell ami Cot-belt with Vt" expenses.
.Mitchell urcepts. Does Corbet!'.'
Mr. Austin, sporting editor of the Po
lice (iuzetle. commenting on the dis
pulch, staled lo a t'nlted Press reporter
that the club had evidently taken Fltz
slmmons at his word in his refusal to
meet Corbet! before the club for a
purse of ss.uon. and would have nothing-
more to do with Kitzsiiumons be
cause of the hitter's peremptory and
emphatic declination of the club's oiler.
"Corhett." Mr. Austin added, "is now
playing with his company in Cincinnati,
and we will at once ciimmunicute to
him the club's offer."
Mr. Austin expressed some surprise
nt the club's offer of such a large
purse for a light between Cnrbett and
a man whom he so easily defeuted only
a short time ago, and could only ac
count for it by the belief that Mitchell
still continues to be looked upon us the
lending Knglish pugilist.
Cincinnati, Ohio, Murch 23. James J.
Corhett when told of the offer of the
llolingbroke club of London for a light
between himself and .Vlltchel. said:
"Let them scratch out Mitchell'. nat.ie
and put in Fitxsimmoiia', and 1 will
sign only too iiuick. 1 want to Unlit
Fllzslmmons and no one else. There is
nothing in whipping Mitchell again.

Jlavunu. March 23. Here is the
proclamation of fieneral March, com
nuindlng the third division of the first
army corps, recently Issued from head
(Itiurters at Holguln, Santlugo prov
ince: "He It known that the forces operat
ing In the territory of this division have
orders to lire without giving: the signul
to hull to any persons who travel ut

and hamlets, and for the purpose of
preventing- accidents, this is hereby
published for generul knowledge."
This Illustrates the kind of war Spuln
Is giving Culm, even the Spanish ottic
eis are disgusted at the methods used.
Much dissatisfaction in urmy circles
exists. Three hundred officer have ap
plied foe leave of absence, and others
ure hcliiff sent home, having incurred
Cetierai Weyler's displeasure. The fol
lowing generals have fulled to resist
the enemy's operations In the prov
inces: Onerals Navarro. Cunnelo. Mel
la. Aizpuruu. Macon, Ordonox nnd Cor
nell. Recent army operations against
(lenerals Humes and Maceo have com
pletely failed, and apparently the only
resource left is harsh measures against
the unarmed residents, whether Cu
bans, Americans or other foreigners on
the ground that they extend aid and
sympathy to the insurgent forces.
The fnlted Press correspondent has
treated these mutters conservatively,
but has reported muny affairs circum
stantially during the past month, none
of which have been controverted.
Foreigners here wonder how long
civilized nations Intend remaining pas
sive. The authorities fall to protect
the property and, lives of foreigners.
They continue throwing Into prison
French. Knglish and American citizens
for political reasons. There Is no evi
dence to warrant their arrest. The at
tention of the fnlted States govern
ment should be called to the arrest of
eight American citizens, namely: S.m
KUilly. Cepero, Dygert, Rodriguez, So
nielllan (father and son). Qulntera and
Aguro, who are In prison. Cepero is
the only one against whom evidence of

AVift'L TRAGEDY AT DUBOIS
An Explosion of lias at the Berw lad
White Shaft-l ist of tha Dead.
Four Man In tha Mlaa
Biibols. Va., March 23. The first
great mining dlsuster in this neighbor
hood In all of the fifteen years since
mining became an industry of magni
tude, occurred at S.20 o'clock this morn
ing ut the lterwlnd-White .shaft, just
east of town. It came In the form of
an explosion of mine gas and resulted
In the death of thirteen men, all of

Smith, Llndsey F. Bradley, Andrew
Mow uk, Duvld Keil, Reuben Noble and
All of the deud leave fumlllea except
James Oruhum, jr.
A soon a the explosion occurred and
before the extant of the dlsuster wa
known, messengers were sent into tow n
to summon all of the physician who
could be found. When the new
reached Itochester mines, which are
three mile from the shaft, the men
working thero rightly divined that the
set-vice of good, practical men would
be wanted under the ground, and about
forty at once came out and Btarted to
the Hhaft. Conveyance were found
for some nnd other went a far as they
could in the street car and walked the
remainder of tho way. Superintendent
Reed, of the Itochester mines, followed,
and a soon a he arrived nt the shuft,
went below with a cage full of hi own
The air was so bad below that the
men, who went down In gangs of about
ten, could not stuy long at a time, but
the opening seemed to clear up later on,
und better progress in geetlng ut the
extent of tliu disaster.
SCENKS AT THE SHAFT.
About a thousand, people were at the
scene lu an hour. Including many of tho
friend of those underground, but a
far u possible the reporta were kept
from the families of those who were
deud until the bodies could be recov
ered. Seventeen men went down the
Hhaft at 7 o'clock In the morning:, thir
teen going Into a heading north of the
.shaft, and the fount ther in the oppo
site direction, and the batten, with the
mine boss, were the only ones to escape
the terrlllc shock. The four men were
hulf a mile awuy from the shuft nnd
shortly after 9 o'clock they felt whut
they believed wu tha shock following
nn explosion of gas. Immediately after
Mine Bos Harvey came running to
ward them and directed them to hurry
to the foot of the shaft. Then they
came to the Hhaft they ran Into a body
of gas and knew that there hud been
an explosion. Their llrst effort wa to
put up Home brattices which hud been
blown off by the explosion, hoping- thut
it might possibly have the effect of
turning an uir current to their com
rades In the other part of the mine,
but before they hud accomplished much
they were being overcome by the gas
und hud to be taken up in the cage,
one of them then being In a very serious
condition himself. Then it wa thut
the new reached the outside world.
The shaft I close to 300 feet deep, and
for Home time there ha been known to
be truce of git in the chamber, but
precautionary meuures were observed
to avoid a dlsuster. The mine Is a new
one und is yet 111 early stage of de
velopment and for that reason there
were no more men at work at the time
of the explosion.
Twelve of the thirteen bodies hnve
been recovered from the shaft. It 1
not known whether the remaining body
i that of l!ell or Noble, as the body of
the last victim brought to the surface
is mutilated beyond recognition.
