clared that tlie stories alleging tin

seen either Mr. McKinley or Mr. Hanna
since the election and had had no cor

most, ordinary character, chiefly for
ward! rig applications for otticc made
through him. There hud been no ar
rangements for conferences of any
kind as to office.
As to whether he would be a candi
date for re-election to the Semite, Mr.
Sherman said lie had not thought any
thing about It and therefore would
not answer any <|uestlons on the sub

Hanna, who, he said, was a strong
friend of his and a man of attainment*
and ability.

for a fight between Corbett and Fitz

on District Attorney liaekus to

refused to grant it and said that lie
would not allow the fight to take place,
as he understood it was to lie a prize
tight and not a contest for points, and
he added that if an attempt was made
to tiring tlie men together in a ring
they would lie arrested.
Lewis directed the district attorney's
attention to the tights that took place
at the broadway Athletic club, to
which backus replied: "it make- no
difference to me what they do in New

violated in Kings county.”

thirty-five years ago a stage was robbed
at lielmont, and the robbers buried the ,
$3.1,000 in gold they took from it on the
highest peak of the bluffs northwest of

been handed down since that time, and
a great many people believe it. John
ivrainbeuhl, a grocer at Water
and Pauline streets, believe* that
there is plenty of gold buried on
the hills, and he has been searching •
for it. Three months ago he hired a j
number of men and set them to work j
on the hills. They have excavated in
several places and the trees near the
summit have been taken out by the
roots. Home of the excavations are :
thirty feet deep and forty or fifty feet j
across the top. A great trench has j
