DickLewis and Kid Callahan, of^this city, indulged in a fierce encount^^er at the Tivoll theater last Friday^evening. The fight was advertised as^a twenty round one but it lasted only^seventeen . Lewis seemed to have the^best of the mix throughout with the^exception of one round, when Calla^^han floored him for the count of nine.^He gamely stuck at it throughout the^round, however, and by stalling man^^aged to save himself. Callahan was^a surprise to fight followers In this^city and he put up a good exhibition^and took a wonderful lot of punish^^ment. Lewis excelled him in science^and generalship and should have had^the decision had it not been for his^desire to end the fight In the seven^^teenth round, when he let his enthu^^siasm get the better of him and rush^^ed in on the Kid and struck him when^he was on his knees. There was noth^^ing left for Referee Bebb to do but to^give the decision to Callahan. There^eoiiiu be no objection to this decision^as it was clearly a foul and could be^uealt with in no other way. As a^whole the light was one of the best^that has been fought In Lewistown.^Callahan out-weighed his dusky oppo^^nent and they both had knockout^blows on hand, which, if they could^have landed them, would have settled^the fight on short notice.

Withthe first of the year Um old^officers of the county will^and the new ones take tli^with the exception of those^lucky enough to secure a re-election.^Another exception is that of the coun^^ty treasurer, who will hold over until^the first of March.
Muchwork has been done at the^court house In the way of repairs and^the new officers will get the benefit^ol these Improvements. The space^formerly occupied hy the old Jail has^Leen renovated and Its appearance^much changed. Lavatories have been^installed In part of this space and a^large office fitted up for the use of^the county attorney and the county^surveyor. The commissioners have^decided that the county attorney^should have his office in the court^house, and this is the reason for the^lilting up of the new office. The sur^^veyor has formerly occupied part of

ofschools, but this room was hardly^large enough for the two offio s, so^the change will be made.
