A ROW OVER LANGTRY
Fred May and a New Orleans Gambler
Exchange the Lie.
PYom the Philadelphia Press.
New York, Sept. 27.—'That imperturb
able and blase man-about-town, Fred May,
bad about as close a call the other night in
one of his numerous escapades up town as
be is ever likely to have again, and get
clear with his life. He has pulled himself
out of a good many scrapes, but the last
one was considerably more dangerous at
one period of the row- than any of his recent
escapades. Perhaps the best known New
York gambler, and a man who never speaks
in superlatives, said in relation to the mat
ter to-night: “May came as near losing his
life as possible, considering the fact that he
was not touched. He was nearer to the
verge than 1 ever want to be.”
The row was in Valkurbaugh’s saloon,
which is next door to the Hoffman House and
under the Albemarle Hotel, and the princi
pals were Fred May and Mike Duffy. May
is a man of the world in every sense, has
hosts of friends, and despite no end of talk
be is unquestionably a man of high personal
courage. His name has been familiar all
over America ever since his duel with
James Gordon Bennett. His latest escapade
was smashing in the door of an inoffensive
citizen named Bates, who lived in the
Berkeley apartment house, Newport.
Mike Huffy is regarded as the most dan
gerous man in New Orleans. He is about 83
years old, of erect carriage and handsome
presence. He dresses faultlessly, is slim,
dignified and quiet. He wears a moustache:
he is a typi'al gambler, cold, calm, resolute
and dangerous. He is on here on a visit,
and he sat in Valkenburgh’s saloon at a
very early hour this morning with several
friends when Fred May walked in. Detec
tive Sergeant Hickey, Harry Perry, Paul
Arthur, the actor, and half a dozen men
about-town were entertaining Duffv. May
joined the group. He was introduced to the
Southern gambler, hut he either did not
catch his name or did not know who he
After talking a while the men fell to try
ing different feats of strength, such as put
ting down arms, twisting coins, lifting
chairs and the like. In all the contests
May’s tremendous muscles placed him ahead
of the others. Duffy set and smoked as he
watched these different amusements, and
finally someone mentioned the name of
Mrs. Langtry, and the crowd fell to discuss
ing the latest creation of the Jersey Lily,
“As in a Looking Glass.” After they had
talked a few minutes May drew himself up,
and, dropping his fist on the table, said:
“I don't, care to have that lady discussed
here,” staring sharply at Duffy, who hap
pened to he speaking at the time.
Duffy looked across the table at Mr. May
a moment and then said: “Mrs. Langtry is
a public character; she advertises herselt as
such; forces herself dow-n the public throat,
and as such any man in the world has the
right to discuss her in public whenever and
wherever he chooses.”
“No man can do it here,” said Mr. May,
“On, yes he can,” drawled the Souther
ner, quietly. “I can and I will. I have a
good mind to send around to her house now
and see if she won’t go out to supper with
me.” Duffy leaned forward, with his elbows
on the table, and stared directly in the eyes
of May, and both the men sat looking at
each other, while the others pushed their
ehairs hack from the table. There was a
moment’s silence and then May said taunt
ingly; “Oh, no. you won’t.”
“Yes, I will," said the other. “You are a
liar!” shouted the New Yorker.
The men jumped to their feet and Sergt.
Hickey threw himself on May, who jumped
toward Duffy. Capt. Morgan, who was
also in the group, took Duffy's arm and at
tempted to draw him away. Duffy shook
him loose and walked up in front of May,
who towered above him, and said to Hickey
and the other men who were holding May
hack: “Ijetlgo of the big stuff. He is a rank
coward and a liar. He is afraid you will let
him go. If you take your hands of him he
won’t come near me.” He stood with
in half a foot of May’s face and taunted
him in the quietest manner in the
world. Men ivho knew Duffy made up
their minds that the jig was up with May,
for there is no questions about the tactics of
a man who has made the reputation that
Duffy has in a land where the revolver is
the gambler's bible. The others held May
back and forced him slow'.,’ towards the
door, while Duffy walked slo ly after him,
taunting and insulting him as he went.
Finally the proprietor of the place got a
hearing, and the men were taken away by
Harry Perry and Hickey then quarreled,
and Perry was knocked down. Two police
men arrested the detective sergeant, but re
leased him on the way to the station house.
The Difference Between the Large and
Small Ones—The Lick Telescope.
From the Forum for September.
It is frankly to be admitted that for ordi
nary work enormous instruments are not
advantageous; those of moderate dimensions
will do far more easily and rapidly the work
of which they are capable. It would he
poor policy to shoot squirrels with 15-inch
cannon. Observers with smaller instru
ments, if they have sharp eyes and use them
faithfully, can always find enough to do.
and can do it well. But the great tele
scope has two advantages which are de
fcisive. In the first place, It, collects more
light, and so makes it possible to use higher
magnifying powers, and thus virtually to
draw nearer to the object studied than we
can with a smaller one; aud, ill the next
place, inconsequence of what is known as
“diffraction," the image of aluminous point
made by a lage lens is smaller and sharper
I ban that made hv a small one. The smaller
tbe telescope the larger are the sh-called
“spurious disks” of tee stars, so that in the
cate of a close double star, for instance,
where our fi-inch telescope shows only an
oval disk, the 23-inch shows two fine dis
tinctly separated jxiiiUs. It ia true that the
atmospheric, disturbances, which always
prevail to a greater or less extent, very se
riously affect the “seeing” with large in
struments. The “power of the prince of
the air,” which is to an astronomer the very
type of the “total depravity of inanimate
things,” on nine clear nights out of ten, de
prives a great telescope of much of its just
superiority, so that on an ordinary night a
good observer with an aperture of 12 or
15 inches can make out all that can he seen
with 21 or 150 inches at the same time. And
yet the writer has constantly verified in his
experience the observation of Mr. Clark,
“Yoii can always see with a larger tele
scope everything shown by a smaller one—
a little better if the seeing is bad; immensely
better if it is good.”
But when a really good night comes, as
once in a while it does, then to a great tele
scope heaven opens, new worlds appear,
new forms and features are discovered, old
illusions are dissipated and observations and
measurements before beyond the reach of
human skill liecome possible, easy and ae
curate "in fact, the reasonableness of want
ing stilllarger telescopes is identically the
same as t-bat of wanting a telescope at all.
Of course, it is impossible to predict what
discoveries will be made with the great
Lick telescope when it is erected on its
mountain of privilege —very likely none;
it is not possible now to go out at night, as
some seem to think, and pick up “discover
ies” as one would gather flowers in a forest
But we may lie sure of this, that it will
collect data, with micrometer, camera and
spectroscope, which will remove many old
diffioulities, will dear up doubts, will actu
ally advance our knowledge, and, what is
still more Important, will prepare the way
. and hew the steps for still higher climbing
toward the stars.

DESPERADO CORTINA FREE.
Eleven Years in Prison Without Trial
for Expediency’s Sake.
From the .Veto York World.
City of Mexico, Sept. 27.— The release
of Juan Cortina, after more than eleven
years of imprisonment in the military prison
of Santiago Tlaleloleo revives the story of
the mail’s romantic and picturesque career.
Intelligent public opinion here has always
condemned the policy of the Mexican gov
ernment in imprisoning him at all, and in
numerable have been the indignant and con
temptuous criticisms in consequence. From
Fresident Diaz down, almost everybody
knew that. Cortina was an offender not
against Mexico but of Texas: that it was be
fore a Texan not a Mexican tribunal that he
should ha ve appeared and t hat it was not in a
Mexican but in a I nited States prison that
he should have expiated his crimes. Still
there was a loud and bitter outcry against
Cortina along the Rio Grande, on the Texas
side of which Cortina was persistently cred
ited to Mexico, and when Diaz, after his
successful revolt against Lerfto de Texada,
in 1876, became President, he found it would
be better for him to accept the situation at
the American estimate, and, since the United
States authorities would not do so, arrest
the tumultuous Cortina himself. He issued
orders accordingly and Cortina was soon
lodged in the prison of Santiago, where he
has remained ever since, though latterly
some little freedom has been allowed him.
He was never brought to trial because, in
fact, he had violated no laws of Mexico.
He was heid in obedience to an idea of in
ternational expediency. That was all.
That Cortina was a ruffian, a murderer
and a brute is not doubted by any one who
knows his history. That he was the guiding
spirit of that vast cattle stealing organiza
tion which ravaged the Texas frontier
during the sixties and the early seventies
there is good reason to believe. But the
truth is that Cortina was born in Texas, not
far from Brownsville, where his mother
lived all her life and where she owned an
estate of some value. He was a desperado
of brilliantattainments.and long and bloody
and cruel is the record attributed to him.
Many army officers will recall him, fifteen
or twenty years ago, as he would ride into
Brownsville or Matamoras, a nervous, mus
cular, little figure, magnificently attired in
the most picturesque style of*the Mexican
caballero, superbly mounted and bristling
with revolvers. He rejoiced in a lightning
“pull” and a deadly aim, and the highest
ambition of the prudent tradesman in either
town was to shut up shop as soon as Cortina
Decidedly it was in the interests of civ
ilization that Cortina should he locked up.
The only trouble was that the United States
and not the Mexican authorities were the
ones to do it. Relations, however, were
strained at the time. Diaz did not feel se
cure of American sympathy, and he finally
decided, it is believed here by the advice of
Minister Foster, to remove the firebrand and
restore good feeling. It is only fair to say
that the United States authorities recip
rocated in 1877 by seizing a lot of arms
about to be crossed into Mexico for the
purpose of equipping a counter-revolution
against Diaz, organized by the deposed
President Lerdo, then living in New York,
and of which Gen. Escobedo, since pardoned
and reinstated, was to he the leader.
All the same, however, Cortina was a
citizen of Texas, an offender against the
laws of the United States, and should have
been dealt with by that government and
not the Mexican. Indeed, he was at one
time during the war between the Northern
and Southern States in the military service
of the Union.
He is nearly 60 years old now, and much
enfeebled by his long imprisonment. It is
not thought he will do much if any harm
when he returns to his old haunts on the
THEY WILL DODGE HIM AGAIN.
A Demented Father Accuses his
Daughter’s Lover of Crime.
From the New York World.
About 4 o’clock yesterday afternoon a
closed carriage drew up at the office of
Justice Weed, on Henderson street, Jersey
City, and a nattily dressed young man
alighted and inquired of the Justice whether
he could conduct a marriage ceremony.
Justice Weed answered affirmatively, and
the visitor helped from the carriage a young
lady of about 20, whose beauty impressed
even the phlegmatic Justice. The couple
were shown into the parlor while a petty
case progressed below, but were soon joined
by Mr. Weed.
As he was about to commence the usual
form of the marriage ceremony, loud voices
were heard below, the girl turned pale and
clutched her companion’s arm and hoarsely
whispered, “It’s father.” The Justice
stopped his preliminary talk just as an ex
cited man burst into the room and began an
unintelligible rant of which the Justice
could make nothing. When he became
cooler he told a story which convinced his
judicial hearer that he had struck some
thing big. The story told was to the effect
that he was Lorenzo Goulin, of Santa Fe,
and that his daughter, Eugenie, the pros
pective bride, had eloped with her com
panion, a bank clerk, named Herman von
Lahr, who had not only robbed him of his
daughter, but had absconded with #20,000
of the funds of the First National Bank of
Santa Fe, of which he, the relator, was a di
rector. He had followed the couple ever
since their flight, three weeks ago, and had
at last, tracked them to the Justice s office.
During the recital of this strange story
the young couple frequently attempted to
interrupt the old mail, and the girl wept
bitterly all the while. Mr. Goulin turned
on them fiercely every time they spoke, and
at last, advised by the Justice, they allowed
him to talk on. When he finished he de
manded that the Justice arrest the young
man, but was quieted by Constable Budden
while the accused man told his story. Taking
Justice Weed aside a minute he'hurriedly
whispered:. “He is insane,” and then aloud
proceeded to state that he was Herman Von
Lahr, of Santa Fe, and the girl he proposed
to make his wife was. Eugenie Goulin, and
the daughter of the strange visitor. They
had left the Southwest a year ago, Eugenie
traveling with her mother, her demented
father and himself. The old man was
crazed on the subject he had l>een talking
of, and hated the sight of his daughter’s
lover. They had consulted Mrs. Goulin re
garding their marriage and, acting on her
advice, had Some to Jersey City from their
boarding-house in West Seventy-eighth
street. New York, to avoid the old man, but
somehow he hail learned of their intention
and followed them. Goulin had another
raving siiell after this story and shouted
that Herman was a “liar and a thieving
In the midst of this noise another visitor
Appeared who embraced Eugenie and, intro
ducing herself as Mrs. Goulin, told the Jus
tice that her husband was demented, as
Herman had said. Justice Weed believed
her and offered to go on with the ceremony,
hut all seemed to think it advisable to dodge
the old man again, and the strange party
left the office, the father muttering all the
