NEW YORK, December 28. — Among sporting men here the report is current that James J. Corbett, the erstwhile champion pugilist, has good reason for quitting the prize ring.

The first to recognize the trouble is said to have been "Billy" Brady, who is now on his way to Australia. Brady, it is said, knew that Corbett's method of life was the cause of his trouble, and at least a year ago warned him that a physical as well as a mental collapse would be inevitable if he did not face squarely about. Letters in which Corbett acknowledged his mistakes are said to be in existence. In them he promised to reform, but if the reports of his present condition are true he certainly has failed to make good his promise, PULLMAN AIDING THE CUBANS, George Gould Aluo Said to be looking Out ITor Concessions, Ky,, December 28,^— George Scrughain, an electrical engineer who has been in New Orleans constructing an electric street railroad, "has just arrived, from that city, and in an interview said: "I became acquaint< ed with the Cuban who is at the head of the movement in New Orleans for sending recruits, arms and ammunition io the insurgents.

December, Si—Somfc sxcitement was caused hefe b£ the discovery that the navy department • had decided to let contracts for large quantities of projectiles for which no appropriation has been made t)y congress. Small contracts aggregating ; $100,000 have been awarded within the past four days to the Carpenter Steel Company and to the Wheeler-Sterling Steel Company, and these will be followed by others, which is expected to bring the total amount Up to something like 8000,000. The department has observed some secrecy about the matter, the contracts already let having been awarded without the Usual public advertisement, The entire ( contracts will call for BOO 13-inCh artnoi' piercing projectiles; 600 i^incb. &emi-armor piercing projectiles; 600 12-inch armor piercing projectiles, and 1,800 8-inch armor piercing projectiles. It has been practically decided by the authorities to give slightly more than half of the order to the Carpenter Steel Company, while the remainder will go to the Wheeler-Sterling firm, tt is said that the Midvale Steel Company, another firm which manufactures projectiles, did not care to take an 31-der for shells from the government tit the present time. There is no reason for alarm over the large orders which the department has decided Upon making. The shells are needed for the new battle ships. The Indiana has not her full supply of projectiles, and the battle ships Oregon and Massachusetts, which will be completed within a few months, must be given their share of projectiles when they go into commission. The authorities declare that the orders have nothing whatever to do with the Venezuelan question now pending. They are desirous, however, of being prepared for emergencies and desire to have a supply of projectiles on hand. It is the intention of the firms which will be given the contracts to put on an extra force and turn the shells out as quickly as possible. The Carpenter Steel Company can turn out. a couple of hundred shells per month' and more if their force is increased, and the Wheeler-Sterling Company, it is thought, can make about the same average. There is no appropriation available' for paying for the projectiles, but the authorities are confident that congress will not fail to make good the amounts the contract calls for. It is thought that the secretary will report a deficiency if he does not ask congress directly to make an appropriation. THE POPE WILL SPEAK. An Encyclical on tho Armenian Situation Being Prepared.
