?Wes 1-luiLchlns and Hall called at our
office end stated that there were Omt
three constancies prescn t?Oonstablee
Hall. Elliott and Ilutchlns. Mr. Hur.ch
Ihs said that about 11 o'clock Monday
night that he and Constable Hall were
sitting In Jncobson's store, on Omiiity
street extended, wihen two young -nun
came in and said: "Ilutchlns, d'.d you
know that there Is to he a prize fight
between mldrright and morning near
the olty limits somewhere?" He replied
"No." and the young men said: "Well,
there is. You and Hall Vume with us and
we will put you on to It." The four left
Jacotoou's, came'bo town, went in Wae
semnan's place. While ither^ one man
'remarked: "My tchlns would not pull us."
Ho and Hall'went out and left his -two
j friends In there, and then kept
watch and yaw line wag-on loaded with
men staut from "Wasserman's, a.nd an?
other from th:- corner of King and

an oath, and asked: "What do you fel?
lows want In my territory? I am here
to see that the fight comes off, and it
?will, and it will not be well for you
?to livterferu." They said: "Ned, come
i outside an?'-lalk. We are brother olli
eers and let us discuss this matter." At i
this lime several men under the Influence j
> of liquor rushed at them, and would j
have done them bodily harm, but for
some intimate frionds of theirs from
I Portsmouth, who interfered. Th- y found
it was useless to try to break up the
light, 'which they claim was Intended to
be a. finish, but seeing "that they were
inclined to imak? trouble, a boxing
match between tho young men was
j given. Soon after the crowd came, ami
with them tihe fighters. A ring was
t pitched and the lighting began. Only
six rounds were 0 light. They did n it
Interfere, 'because it would have been

I was in the bands of the Common?

that they can prove every word that
they have stated, and In doing so they
wll' bi lng to c iitrl a number of pers ins

forward near the bow were from the
bottom of the ship. There Is a gnod
deal of speculation as to what caused
this, many contending that the posi?
tion of the plates show that the big
magazine forward did not explode. The.
divers, it. Is believed by many, will
find very little of the structure of the
ship forward of the ten Inch turret.
It is possible that the wrecking tug

people, and the ashes of forty Jesuit

burled in a tomb In the cemetery of

Those engaged In examlng the wreck
or the battleship .Maine hope to-day lo
settle the question definitely as to
whether the ten-Inch magazine on the
starboard side forward blew up.
It Is suggested that the public should
bear In mind that a war ship is not easy
to get about In. even when afloa-t, and
the difficulties are therefore much great?
