COLOR LINE INVOLVED.
There is. therefore, much res-ting upon
the result of the board's Investigation that
was begun today. It is practically, to de
termine whether the color line shall be
drawn In the United Mates navy.
The board is merely an Indicting body,

"What opportunity," asked the recorder,
"has the officer or the day for observing

The 10,000 spectators begin to show

As thesetond anil third animaU proved
eiiuallv had an unknown individual luirlrd
a plank at one of the fizbUrs in the ring.
This act served as a signal Tor the ex
cited multitude to behave in a like man
ner, with tl e result that the ring was
itrewn with chairs, cushion and lumber,
which had been thrown lnm the botes
ami fences surrounding InecoIlLseum.
The bull lighters ran Tor their lives. It
was only on account of the presence of the
large body of soldiers, who threatened to

of the structure was- averted.
The mnnasfuient was lined 5500 and
ordered to return the admittance price,
which was $i per capita. Several people
were more or less Injured.
This demonstration Is likely to result In
the suppression or bull fighting for mime
time to come.
