however , Mr. Barker's evidence in thn

many atlldaviU that Church Howe ha

like to have made public , now that hi

that Al Marx , who Is in training to bo
Michael Fitzgerald on the 8th instant hai
been thrown from a Imgey and scriousl.
injured. Notwithstanding the raii
Colonel Forbes hitched up hie eli
Dexter , and drove out to Marx'
training quarters. Ho found tha
the "Texas Cowboy" had boon throwi
out of a buggy as reported , but ho hai
sustained no injury vhatovcr , but on th
contrary was in the very best of condi
tion. Ho is confident of his ability ti
down the young Irishmen , and as ho ha
the "hurricane lighting" tactics and i
several pounds heavier than Fitzgoralt
ho will undoubtedly make things live !
for Michaol.
The hitter came up from Bellevue las
night to order a now boll ; the star am
stripes above the green. Ho looks like i
young giant , and as ho expects to hav. .
a match In Chicago very soon and has ti
return to Utah to fight Jack Murphy , i
Uocky mountain champion , ho says hi
wishes his match with Marx was to conn
oil'nt once. Fitzgerald depends inainl' '
on his science for victory on the 8th , ani
scorns to have no fear ot the result. IL
returned to Hollovuo this morning , am
will continue his training until the eve o

arranged that a brnkumnn can , befor
leaving the platform , pull a lever , ci
after stopping down on the ground tur
a small crank" , which will cause an adu
tional step to extend down from undei
neath the Jo\vest permanent stop ani
about equally divide the distance be

thereby making it more convenient fo
passengers , especially ladies , to get o

fort. The device is simply constructed
and in point of safety , durability nn
cheapness of construction seems to carr
its own recommendation.

a pet of the llannnill household , as wo
as a general favorite with all who kno <
her. yesterday about noon she went t
the grocery store on an errand , 01
dorcd the articles purchased sent liomi
but never returned Herself. When IK
absence became prolonged beyond
reasonable time , anxiety suggested
search , but notwithstanding the fact tin
all places where she might have visit o
andjill the outgoing trains wcro vvatchei
no tidings of the missing one wore fouiu
There is a vein of sensation in tills iHsiq
pcnranco. Some thrco years ago tli
Kev. Mr. UamtnlJl adopted tli
little girl with the full coi
sent of her mother , who was loft a wldo'
in very poor circumstances in New Yor
City and with six children to care foi
Her husband was an extensive dry good
merchant in the metropolis , anil while o
a visit to the Montreal ice carnival i
18S2 lie contracted a cold which deve
oped into pneumonia , which resulted fr
tally. After his death it was diseox-oro
that all his money had been invested i
his business , and further oxamlnatio
showed that there were no assets whai
over for the widow and children. It wa
at this time the Rev. Mr. Ilamnnl teethe
the child , Fannie , and provided her wit
the best of homes , in which ovorythin
that ail'ection could suggest was pr <
vided for the Httln one. The niothu
seemed overpleased that her daughtu
had such preseutgood fortune and Jutur
bright prospects. Sometime afterward
she visited her child and was n
joiced to see how contented sh
was in her happy home. Tli
mother subsequently remarried a ma
by name of Edwards and moved to Kan
sos City. Hev. Mr. Ilammill and funi
ily came hero , the former to assume tli
responsible position of rector of Trinit
cathedral. The mother never visited he
child again until about a fortnight ag
she asked permission to call at Air. Ham
mill's on her way , , "Us she alleged , ti
San Lrancisco. Tbis , Was readily grautoi
and the meeting took .place , the child
of course , after the absence of so man'
years , and considering her tender age
not recognizing her , v iother. Notlnnj
was then said a ? , Jo .any change in tin
Homo of the child [ being made , nor wa
there the least suggestion of any inten
tion on the mother's ' part to take tin
child. Mrs EdwAvds loft , apparently ti
continue her trip lo San Francisco. Tin
disappearance oiFiinnjc yesterday make
Mr. Ilammill morally certain that tin
woman remained in-tlio citv or had ai

been taken away. Mr. flanuuil
can ' account Mr - , her absence ii
no other way. ri.13 6 ; will leave 111
stone unturned 'ascertain Fannie'
whereabouts. Hoas Ueoply grieved n
Mrs. Edwards' action , if slio really ha
spirited the child away , especially is In
us willing to 'submit the question o
vrhich home is the better one for tin
child to any selected friends of boll
parties. There is a bare possibility tha
the disappearance of the little girl ma ;
bo attributed to some other cause , bii
there is very little foundation for an'
other theory than abnetion. The pres
unt husband of the mother is said to b
opposed to having the child back oven i
the mother should wish it. Mr. Hammil
telegraphed to Kansas City last nigh
and personally visited all the trains , am
is determined to throw some light on tin
mystery no matter what It may cost.
