Two Gladiators in the
THE FIGHT DECLARED A DRAW.
Burke Evidently Got the Best of
the Great Dempsey Through
out the Fight.
\ Special to thl Herald bu the Associated Press,
San Fbancisco, November 22.—1t
was supposed by some that the Sullivan-
Ryan glove contest would dwarf the in
terest felt in the l'urke-Dempsey tight
whioh look place to night. If, how
ever, public interest iv the two contests
is to be measured by the results, then
the Burke-Dempsey affair has proved
itself a much more interesting and im
portant eveut than was tbe great knock
out of Ryan by Sullivan.
Burke and Dempsey were both known
(o be good men aud evenly matched
Dempsey has the reputation of being a
hard hitter, while at the same time he
went into the ring with the prestige o
being the wUner of thirty battles
Bui ke, on the other band, was said to
bave gained in hitting power, to hive
had the advantage of more scientific
training, and tv be in better liglitim
condition than hia opponent. Besides,
it was well known that both men meant
business, and that if not stopped by tbe
police neither would give way unlil
forced to Everything, consequently
contributed to make the match one o
the most interesting and best contested
ever witnessed in this city. As early as
4:30 o'clock tbis afternoou Larkin street,
in front of the Pavilion, was tilled with
people, each determined to got a front
place tbis time, it he never did again.
By 7 o'clock the crowd bud so increased
in number us must have brought delight
to the hearts of those destined to share
in the receipts. When the main doors
were thrown open it took the combined
efforts of a squad of the police and door
keepers to keep the crowd from rushing
in without bunding out their money or
tickets. For a few moments ii looked as
if the match inside would be preceded
by a more dangerous oue outside, but
when the crowd saw tbey would not be
permitted to iorce their way iv, they
good-naturedly fell back, each one tak
ing his turn.
After tho usual preliminary exhibi
tions by local pugilistic celebrities Ed
McDonald and the Monta a Kid ap
peared in the ring. This event was a
very spirited one, and was noticeable by
the evident viciousuess of the contest
ants in their endeavors to prove to the
audience their respective excellencies.
The contest ended slightly in favor of
McDonald, who succeeded in getting iv
some heavy blows, though ge did not
corns off without considerable punish
ment himself. In tho third round the
Montana Kid was knocked down but
qu'ekly came to time. George Hamill,
of St Louis, and Zick Cook, of Michi
gan, then fought four rounds in most
ordinary style. Tue audience took
little interest in the contest. Before th
round was over the announcement was
made that afler tbis event
Burke and would appear.
"Parson" Davies, manager lor Burke,
took much trouble to .fleet good ar
rangements for a punctual start, which
was timed for 10 o'clock, but 10:20 ar
rived without any sign of the "stars."
The audieuoe, which hoped for better
things, manifested impatience by stamp
ing, whistles and cat-calls. At 10:24
Burke forced his way through tbe
crowd and jumped through the ropes
into the ring. Ue was greeted with
loud applause. Quickly following him
name Jack Dempsey. His appearance
increased the applause, which continued
until both were quietly se tied. Cap
tain Hiram Cook, of this city, was an
nounced as referee. Loud calls for Cook
followed, but he failed to put in an ap
pearance. Cries for Sullivan and Ryan
then were heard on all sides, but al
though they were present they made no
response. Sever d others were requested
to act aa refcre-', but th ey all declined.
At this moment a lond crash was heard,
the Hayes street side of the hail near
Polk street, followed by the breaking in
of the doors, aud the entranoe of about
a hundred men who thus suoceeded in
witnessing the contest tree of charge.
Steve Taylor announced that tbey
were ready to take auy responsible man
in the house. Yells of "Pad ly Ryan,"
"Billy Joardan," "Seymour," and
•'Charlie Rooney," quickly followed.
These either refused or were not ac
cepted. Taylor then agaiu asked for
silence and said: "We are willing io
take Sullivan, a sqnare man to every
body," but Sullivau also stoutly refused.
After much further parleying Frank
Crockett was mentioned. He was dual
ly seleoted as referee. A struggle for
time-keeper, began, but was dropped
upon objections to Crockett by Burke.
The matter was finally settled by
Crockett being chosen referee for Burke
and Jack Hallinah for Dempsey. As
soon as time was oalled at 1:08 P. m.
both men promptly responded. No
sooner did they come together than
Dempaey let out his left and reached
Burke in the small ribs. Both men then
becngie wary. Burke then lead and
reached Dompsey a smart blow on the
chest. Dempsey got a left bander in on
Burke, who later repaid him in tbe
same style. Caution on both sides was
then notioeable. In the latter part of
the round fighting occurred which re
sulted slightly in favor of Burke. A
clinch followed and after some more
sparring time for the first round was
Second round—The men came to the
scratch promptly, sparring cautiously
for an opening, Dempsey leading with
his left twice on Burkes stomach. The
men clinched but broke away, Dempsey
landing a heavy right bander ou Burkes
wind. Burke got in two right banders
on Dempsey'a month. Burke forcing
the light with a terrifio left bander on
Dempsey'a neck and following it with
another on Dempsey'a ribs.
Third round —Dempsey led with hie
left for Burkes body. Some rapid ex
changes followed. The round was
marked byquiok exchanges.
Fouith round—Demp<ey led off with
his left on Burkes stomach, each scoring
a like blow. Burke following it up
with a heavy right humier on Dempsey'a
neok and Dempsey next led with left;
reaching Burkes wind. Dempsey was
forced against the ropes and slipped but
Burkes right bander was too high. He
next took Dempsey on tho throat and
maintained the aggressive throughout
the ronnd. Dempaey was more careful
Fifth Round—Opened with a quick ex
change. Dempsey aimed a vicious left
£der M at Burke', .tomach, bnt mianed.
Burke countered with effect twice,
which caused Dempsey only to give a
wicked smile. Some in-lighting aud
more exchanges ended the round.
Sixth Bound—Opened with liurke de
cidedly fresh, Dempsey a trifle worriad
and apparently somewhat winded.
Buike lunded another heavy right
hander on Dempsey's head, followed
closely by an upper cut with his left,
Dempsey landing a straight left-hander
on Buike's mouth Dempsey again got
in a right-hander on liurke's bellows,
liurke several limes making pretty stops
and landing his right heavily on Bern*.
Seventh Round—Both men appeared
to be weakened from their efforts, and
the first part of the round was sparring
for wind. Dempsey again hit Burke a
light body blow. Burke then began to
force the righting and succeeded in get
ting in two heavy body blows.
Eighth Round—Both men were in
good order, Depmsey leading short aad
being soon after countered by Burke.
Dempsey again led and was met by
Burke with a heavy right-hunder on the
throat. Burke from this point forced
Ninth round—Burke got in one on
Dempsey'a nose, but honors seemed des
tined to be even. Demp.-ey got back
with a good swinging blow ot his left
on the aide of Brrko's face. Towards
the end of the round Burke took tbe
offensive, and with credit to himself.
The fighting then became heavy, but too
close to end decisively.
Tenth round—Dempsey led short,
Burke counteriug; Dempsey again led
abort, and was caught with another
right-bander on tile neck. Some one
called time, and the men censed fight
ing, but on beiug called back Burke hit
Dempsey v light body blow. The men,
on time beiug called, retired to their
corners, Burke taking off bis
gloves, while Dempsey remained
seated. Burke cried out that
tbe match was for ten rounds, and as
they hail been fought the match was
over. The audience cheered Dempsey
and yelled at Burke, the latter going
back to his corner, und on Captain Doug
lass signified his willtnguess to coutinue
tho tight, Burke agaiu donued the mit
tens. Finally tbe principals' seconds
und referees discussed the situation aud
the master of ceremonies announced thai
the license called for teu rounds, aud
that the referees were unable to agree,
auil therefore the match was called a
draw. Both men, who were seeu imme
diately after the tight, were apparently
still fresh aud none the worse for their

Emporia, Kan., November 22.—A
most unprovoked aud fiendish murder
was committed in this city this
evening at tbe resilience of S.
V. Buudrum, on the corner of Mar
ket street and Ninth avenue, about 8
o'clock. It appears that L. D. ( oilier,

that he hud neglected bis business. Yar
borough being then under the influenoe
of liquor, became furiously augiy and
struck Collier, whereupon Collier re
turned the blow knocking bim down.
Parties then separated them, Yarbor
ough declaring that he would shoot Col
lier. Collier went to a hotel, where he
ate supper, ami from there to his ro >m
at tbe residence of Mr. Bundrum. Short
ly after arriving at his house a knock was
heard at the dining room door. Mr.
Collier stepped to tne door und upon
opening it saw his assailant, who in
stantly raised a revolver and tired upon
Collier, the ball evidently taking tffect
in or near tbe heart, killing him almost
instantly. Yarborough is now in jail.

ed that Gardiner's liabilities are
two hundred thousand dollars.
Most of his creditors are poor
people and his reported defalcation has
caused much grief aud indignation
among them. Gardiner has a family

ber of smaller brokers. Gardiner was

dication of his whereabouts.

A bond Deal of Talk. Indulged in;
Hut a Scarcity of Candidates.
The mass convention of the Prohibi

Brunson's court room, met last night
and consisted of twenty-three prohibi
tionists, two male sot Hers, four ladies,
otic policemau and oue small boy who
gave a copy of the Weekly Censor to all
those who would accept one. E. K.
Green occupied the chair aud J. T.
Handsaker acted as Secretary. Will D.
Gould read a set of resolutions stating
tliut prohibition was the only remedy
for tbe great crime of the uge—the drink
traffic, and its brood of evils, tobacco,
gambling and houses of infamy. The
sixth and last resolution was us follows:
Resolved, lhat we pledge our nomi
nees, if elected, to reduce taxation in
this city one-half' and at the same tiitf ?
greatly improve every depar.m-mt of the
city government, and help make this
city in every way worthy of v patriotic
and Christian people.

amended to exclude the words "oue
The business of nominating city offi
cers was then proceeded with and oue
hour was consumed mainly iv speeches
about the candidate tor the Mayoralty,
A. M. Hough nomiuated Dr. Coch
rane for Mayor. A Mr. Davidson ob
jected to the nomination. He wanted a
prohibition Mayor and a man who
would help the prohibition party in its
struggle for power. He nominated,)esse
Yarnell, who deoliued. The nomination
of A. M. Hough was seconded by Will
D.Gould and Jesse Yarnell. In reply
to Julius Lyon, who doubted the policy
of nominating Dr. Cochrane, A. M.
Hough said that if there wero to be a
division in the Republican party the re
spectable part of it would come out
squarely for the candidate of Prohibi
tion. Me advocated the making of con
verts, as the party does not command a
sufficient uumber of votes to elect any
ono of their number. If Cochrane, who
is a prohibitionist at heart, is elected,
it will be bruited all over the State lhat
the Prohibitionists of Los Angeles have
elected the Mayor. Dr. Sinsabaugb,
President of the City Council, had lold
the speaker in the afternoon that if tbe
Republicans wauted to kick about Coch
rane's nomination by the Prohibition
ists, why—let tbem kick. So far as tbe
speaker knew, he believed the Doctor
would accept tho nomination of this
Several speakers followed in opposi
tion to Dr. Cochrane's nomination, one oi
whom said that if be were nominated
by the Prohibitionists it would surely
defeat him at the polls. Mr. Hough
finally withdrew Dr. Cochrane's nomina
tion aud the place went a beggiug until
Julius Lyon finally nominated H. C.
Witmer. After a little kicking the
nomination was made nnanimous. Tbe
only time that was lost with the re
mainder of the nominations was the
trouble in finding candidates that wanted
tbe honor of getting knocked ont. All
nominations were made unanimous, and
were as follows:

The First Sunset Excursion.
The lirst Sunset excursion over the S.
P. Co'a lines, and under the oare of Mr.
Cbas. B. Turrill, from New Orleans, ar
rived hero yesterday. There were two
Pullman palace cars full, with a few
stragglers in other cars, and tbey came
attached to the regular passenger train,
coming through in four days. The
party was composed of very well-to-do
tourists, who came to see California for
the first time. Among them is Mr. W.
E. Webb, some time since agent
in the East for tbe Kansas
Pacific land grant. He is reported to
have doubled the population of Kansas
in an incredibly short time, so inteligent
ly did he manage the lands of that com
pany. He is here now as the eastern
Land Commissioner of the International
Land Company of Mexico. This com
pany has a grant of nearly all the good
lands iv the Peninsula of Lower Cali
fornia. The c are some millions of
acres of it, and Mr. Webb is
confident that he can people this
region, which is now a waste, with
an industrious colony, part of whom are
to be drawn from Europe.
These Sunset parties will be kept up
all the winter and under Mr. Turrill.

New York, November 22.—At the
trial of ex-Alderman McQuade there
were few present who were not actively
engaged in ihe trial. Shortly after 11
o'clock Nicol resumed tbe cross-examin
ation of Alderman John O'Neil. At the
conclusion of the examination of the
witnesses, Newcomb introduced the
minutes of the Board of Aldermen for
1884 to prove that McQ iade had twice
voted against the railroad bills of the
Jersey City and Brooklyn and Thirty
fourth Street roads. Ex-Alderman
Charles H. Reilly swore he didn't at
tend any of tbe meetings of the "com

FullgrafiV plaoe of business, for any
purpose, in his life. His testimony,
however, had little significance as affect

He Aesures the President that
He Won't Hurt Hliu.
Nkw York, November 22.—The News
says that while President Cleveland's
carriage was waiting for him at the curb,
the President having followed the re
mains of ex-President Arthur into the
Grand Central depot, a young man
dressed in a faded coat fastened across
his breast by a wooden pin ond wearing
a faded brown ha', worked his way
through the police Hues and stepped
upon the wheel beside the driver and a
reporter. Handiug bis caid to the re
porter he said: "Will you please give
that to Mr. Cleveland and tell him I
won't hurt him." Tbe reporter read the
card aud saw the name of Nathan Schu
ler, Rondout, N. Y. It was a crank
who was arrested at the Albany bi-cen
teunial for an alleged attempt upon the
life of the President. "What do you
want with the President?" asked the re
porter. "I want you to tell him that I
am harmless, lam the man who was
arrested at Albany, bnt I did not want
to shoot bim. lam a friend of his; 1
conld not hurt him. Please give him
my card and tell him so, will you?" The
President's face appeared at the New
York Central door aud Schuler became
more importunate. An officer pullel
him away from the carriage and he ran
aronnd to the other side and tried to
climb up on tbe seat. Detective O'Con
nor approached the carriage and the
fellow ran away from the depot. The
Presidential party left for Washington

The Chicago Anarchists (Jetting
Heady for mischief.
Chicaoo, November 22.—A looal Ger
man paper in its issue yesterday asserted
that the Anarchists of this city have re
newed their agitation, and that calls for
meetings — "Groups" — are circulated
openly. Monday evening, the article
says, in a hall on Claybourne avenue, a
meeting of the north side "group" of the
International Working People's Associa
tion was held, at which various plans
were discussed. Some persons present
thought that on a stormy night, with a
few pounds of dynamite, the water tower
could be blown up and fires started at
some different places. The water works
destroyed, the fire department oould
have no water, half the city would go up
iv a blaze, and in the confusion thus
cau ed reorganized "groups" and com
panies could easily capture the city. Po
lice Captain Sohall says he has no fear
of any tiling happening at present, and
his men are keeping sufficiently close
watch on the "groups."

CONVENTIONS AND FAIRS.
Which Are lo lie Held la Los
Angeles Next April.
Frem State Commissioner of Horticul
ture B. M. Lslong, who ha* just re
turned from the Fruitgrowers' State
Convention at Sacramento, it is learned,
that that body has decided to hold two
conventions yearly hereafter. One in
Southern California, to ba held in April.
The other in Northern California in
November. The first one of these con
ventions will be held in Lo* Angeles
city in April, 1887, though the exact
date has not yet been determined upon.
The year after, another Southern Cali
fornia city. Riverside or San Diego
will probably be chosen. At the time
of the holding of the drat convention in
this city, the United states Pomolog
ical Society will also be in session here,
and simultaneously the Orange Growers'
Protective Union will hold a grand
citrus fair in a pavilion, which is to be
erected on Fort street by a stock com
pany. At the exhibition about $1000
worth of premiums will be distributed,
open to the State, nation and foreign
countries. Mr. Lelong reoorls the con
vention at Sacramento a very great suc
cess, but believes from the promise
made by northern fruit growers, who
have pledged themselves to come and
bring valuable exhibits, that the joint
convention and fair here in April will
be even more successful.
A Med-Haired Moak.
The Chief of Police yesterday re
ceived a telegram from Oscar Palmer,
an indignant father at San Diego, re
questing him to arrest Sarah Palmer, his
daughter, and a man named Moak. The
couple skipped from San Diego for the
purpose of getting married, and Mr.
Palmer wanted the County Clerk to be
notified that no marriage license should
be granted the couple. Moak is a barber
by profession, short of stature and red
haired. Perhaps that is the reason
Palmer objects to the alliance. In the
event of his daughter being found here
he wanted her sent back and he would
hear all expenses, Investigation by tbe
police showed that Moak and Miss
Palmer did not reach Los Angeles but
tbey probably have gone to Sau Bernar
dino and are Mr. aud Mrs. Moak by
