In to-day for n round of rtbuse from tlir
frlonds of Ollilions, also from those who
had nlaoed their money on the New Jer

flght and, consequently, tho 7,090
purso to McAullfte. Tlie Drooklyp
boy's supporters, however, are In high
glee, and declare that Dnnn could not
have dcolded otherwise and acted fairly.
Some of them go so far as to declare that
police Interference was n prearranged
scheme to save Gibbons from defeat. At
any rate It was a little rough on the sev
eral carloads of sports who came from
Boston, Troy, Philadelphia and other
distant points, to be deprived of seeing
the fight out.
The general opinion nmong uninter

that the deellon was unfair to Gibbons,
on the ground thnt the articles called for
a finish fight, and thero was 110 finish.
Tho point Is accentuated by tho fact that
when the match was made McAuIlffo
wanted It bo for 15 rounds, but the Gib
bons party, appreciating McAulllTo'a
cleverness, and seeing that ho might
win on points in a stated number of
rounds, insisted that tho torms should bo

the articles with a clause to that elTuct
It Isn't often reoorded that tho winner

MoAuliffo Bcored first blood In tho sec

blows in return.
Tho third round saw several hard
blows exchanged and Uluoons' left eyo
received another fierce right-hander.

Muro Tluin Idkuly,
New YonK, Sep. 1M. It is now claimed
that Mrs. Hopkins-Sonrles, who left all
Iter property to her second husband,
Decorator Edward F. Soarles, whom she
married in her old age, made a will in
1887, at about the time of that marrlngo,'
in which she left hulf of her ?75,000,003
to her adopted son, Tim Hopkins, and
his wlfo, who was her favorite uiece, and
thnt she divided tho other half among
her cousins and nlecos,
This will form the basis of tho coming
contest of tho other will.
Jano A. Hebbard Smith and Harriet
Hubbard, cousins of Mrs. Soarles, aro not
among tho contestants of the will,
though they were both remombered
in that 18S7 will and omitted
from the will now under contest. Other
people uro appearing nil over Now
England as relatives aud lawful heirs of
Mrs. Hopklns-Searlos; but it is said that
Timothy Hopkins is tho only contestant
with a leg to stand on, and it U whisp

would break up 11 vast block of South

that road have joined with Edward F.

Some 1'rlsnd Who Whs With Curtis at
the Time of His Arrest, Itut This Will
Hnrdlr Held Th Aeented Almost Fran
tic Irtim Worry ami Fear.
Xew York, Sep. 12. The announce
ment from San Francisco that M. II. Cur
tie, "Sam'l of Poen," had shot and
killed a policeman in that city oame as a
great shock to his many friends and ac
quaintances In the theatrical profession
Sinee the failure of "The Schatehen"
last year Curtis is known to have lieen
drinking heavily. He always carried a
pistol about with him wherever he went,
but was usually quiet and peaceful, oven
in drink, say his friends.
Charles Klein, who was Curtti' under
study during "The Schatehen" tour, said
this morning: "Curtis was one of the
liest-tiatured fellows I ever knew. He
was always helping his brother actors out
of a hole. Why, Christmas before last
he returned a whole lot of promissory
notes, amounting to several thousand
dollars, as a Christmas present to the
j fellows who owed him the money.
I "Curtis has been acting very strangely
1 for n long time past. The failure of
j "The Schatehen" broke him all up, I
1 don't believe he can have been in his
riKut mind when he shot that man
Sports from 'Frisco convey the lnfor-
rnatlon that Curtis is almost frantic with
worry und fright over the terrible charge
against him. When arrested, the police
f;ay, he was either very drunk or under
the effect of some powerful drug, and he
was a pitiable object as he sat in the po
lice station wringing his hands in despair,
running from one officer to another to
protest his innocence and telling in an
Incoherent, drunken way of bis doings
dining the night. Ho was intoxicated,
and as he staggeied up from his seat
some one would puBh lilm back again.
Time and time again be started to his
"My God," he cried, "If I could oaly
recall the last four hours of my life. I'm
no murderer, gentlemen; 1 had no pistol.
I shot nobody. 1 haven't an enemy in
Vainly he protested his innocence of
nny offense and wanted to go homo to
his wife. In a rambling way he told tho
story of his business and his affairs.
Although Curtis persistently denies
nil knowledge of the crime, yet circttm
stanoeH at present look very dark for
him. Some of his friends, however, in
sist that lie may be telling the truth in
I the matter. Thoy say that, although
tho policoman was shot and killed only
half it block away from tho station
house, it was not impossible for soma
' ono othor than Curtis to havo done tho
One theory advancod on behalf of tho
I accused is, that some one was with him
I when tho officer took him into custody,
nnd that, ns bo was also likely intoxi
' catod, he followed and coming up behind
1 the policeman shot him dead, dropped
111s revolver ana lieu.
This theory will hardly held even if an
nttempt is made to establish It, as there
were two witnesses to tho shooting. They
are young men and stood directly across
the street and heard tho policeman say:
"Come along now." There was no reply,
but at almost the same Instant the youmr
1 men saw a flash. A pistol shot rang out
in the quiet street, followed in quick sue-
1 cession by two more reports. The officer
fell to the sidowalk without a groau, and
j Curtis, who a moment beforo had boen
' bis prisoner, turned and fled' up Folsom
I Police officers state that Officer Grant
had unquestionably placed Curtis un
der nrrest for disturbing the peace, and
that Curtis shot the officer while being
taken to tbe station.
When the ease of Curtis was called be
fore Police Justice Worley the accused
looked pale and trembled perceptibly,
; evidently not having slept
the shooting ocourred. By consent the
case was postponed until Monday, to
await the action of tho coroner's jury
nnd to allow the attorneys to prepare
Curtis was born in Detroit, and is
about Bo years old. He mudo his first
appearance on tho stage in Daltimore
about 18 yoars ago, playing small parts
in the stock company for several seasons,
and then went to San Francisco.
Not long ago he told a friend of his
that until ''h-am'l of Poson" was pro
duced. In 1881, he had never earned moro
than 20 a week as an actor. He starred
in "Posen" for six or seven years, and
produced in this olty "Caught in a
Comer," a sequel to the former play.
Curtis appeared last in a production
ot "The Schatehen" last September.
The play was a failure and Curtis took
to drink. One night while playing an en
gagement in tbe Iee Avenue Academy,
Brooklyn, Curtis mysteriously disap
peared. Nothing was heard of him for
several weeks, aud then reports reached
this city that he and his wife, Albina do
Mer, an exceedingly pretty French Cana
dian, had returned to their old play,
"Sam'l of Posen," aud were acting out
Until recently Curtis was extremely
well off. He owned a great deal of real
estate in California- In fact a small
town out there, about half of which lie
owns, has been named Posenville. Ha
tried to build a big sum user hotel there
last year, but it is still in an unfinished
condition owing to lack of funds to
carry It through.
