Mrs. McCabe, the murderess of Judge Max Stein, whose escape from the Iatamoras jail, and pture at Alice, Tex., has already been reported, was brought to this city last . night and" placed in jail. Owing to her appeal to the American ladies come months ago, which was given wide publicity by the newspapers, it is unnessary to state how and why She killed Stein. To a correspondent "this morning phe gave a ifraphie account of how she escaped from the jail Saturday nignt, February . 4. lane, had already lieen tried, but sentence had been with held for reason unknown to her. She was not confined on the mine floor with the other prisoners, but occupied a room on the second floor, which privilege was accorded her At an extra cost of If20 per montn lor tne special - guard tarnished bv the Mexican government. :. About 1 o clock on the above night she executed her plans for escape. The guard, think ing she was asleep, left his station for Some purpose, when she auicklv with drew from her trunk a lone rope with Knots tied in it about twelve inches apart.. This she tied to the baluster. The distance- was sixteeu feet to the ground, but owing to weakness, caused bv Ion-; confinement, there . was not enough strength in her arms to support the-weight of the body, consequently she fell heavily to the ground, breaking two bones of1 her right foot, while another was driven through to the bot tom ol her toot, tn tins paintul state the brave woman and - fleeing fugitive crawled seven blocks to the Ri Grande river, where a boat lay in waiting. She was taken to Brownville, opposite Mat- a mora h, and there kept, until last Hun day night, when she was put on a fast horse anil rode to Alice, a distance of 130 miles. She made the distance m three days and was accompanied by Dr. Headley. It is feared her foot will have to be amputated. Mrs. McCabe is 19 years of a.e, of large 8 tat tire and very graceful, and might be termed pretty. She has a luxuriant growth of black hair, four feet in length. Her case will be argued here on February 24. AX KASTKRN- MAN'S OPINION. " Why Work I pon the Portland & Seattle I. Ine Was Stopped. There has been a great deal written and said in explanation of the reasons the new management of the Union Pa cific had for suspending work on the Portland & Seattle line, and why there has been delay in paying oft laborers and contractors. An Eastern railroad man, who is now in the city and who professes to understand the inside of this matter, gives the following as ' the true version of the affair. The real cause of the stoppage of-work on the Portland & Seattle branch and in manv other places on the Pacific system and the cause of delay in paying laborers and contractors, was that when Gould secured control of the Union Pacific, and Adams and the other Boston men went out, they took all the money in the Un ion Pacific treasury to pay call loans, and t-TOUld found that he bad the road on his hands with u floating debt of $12,000,000, and nothing in the treasury. He had to stop all construction work, all shopwork the depot works at Omaha and the depot work here; in fact, all expenditures of money. There was considerable talk of the road coins into the hands of a re ceiver, 'and orders were sent to Omaha to pay no voucher amounting to $115 or up wards. This is the real cause of the stoppage of work and the shortage of funds, which was made a much more serious matter than it would .otherwise have been by the stringency in the money market which arose about the same time. The reviewing of the line and all that sort of thing were merely secondary matters, and were only made to see if some less expensive line could, not be found." . HOCKLE8S JURY. The Advent of the Kansas Statesman In - Washington, Kepreeentative-elect Jerry Simpson of Kansas, while in the hands of King master Bill- Springer today, created more of a sensation in the democratic lobby of the house than a managerie, Not only did the members flock about him and gaze upon him, as if he were a a new kind of an animal, but the people in the galleries, the pages and. the house employes looked upon him as the wonder 'of the present day the man who was elected to congress because he did not wear socks. After Springer had seen to it that every democratic member was introduced to him, Kelley, of Kan sas, took him away from the democrats and introduced him to such repnblicans as wished to become acquainted with the eockles8 statesman. The comments of the press have made Simpson famous, He looks like a man who would be very likely to avail himself of any demagogic argument to secure an election. Before the next congress is over he will have sunk into insignihcance, only to De heard of from time to time as ridiculous. Will Settle np the Business.. . Spokane Falls, Feb. 16. H.

The determination to check and regulate the gambling evil in this city is receiving the sanction of public sentiment, and Corporation Coun sel Jacobs has drawn up a bill for this purpose, which will be presented to the legislature Wednesday. The bill im poses severe penalties on all cut-throat games, and legalizes certain forms of gambling, such as . faro, roulette and hazard, by requiring a high license of from $600 to $3000 per game semi-an nually, in advance.- This, it is believed, will eradicate the worst features of the evil, by suppressing gambling in many of the lowest dives, and will materially decrease the number of gambling houses,' while exacting of them some degree of respectability.

James Corbett, the young California pugilist, is very confident of the outcome ol his battle with Peter Jackson, which occurs May 21, but is not inclined to be boastful. He said : "I consider Jackson one of the best men who ever donned a glove ; purely scientific, a tremendous hitter, and a great general. Of course, if I did not consider I could defeat him I should not have signed my name to the articles of agreement. Reports recently circulated regarding my health are much exagger ated. I never felt better in my life than I do at present. After my engagement here I shall start west, filling a few dates which Parson Davies has booked for me. Stenzell, my backer and manager, will accompany us across the continent, and make arrangements for me to commence training soon after we arrive in San Francisco, which will be about the let of March.
