mjii Tommy "White's Defeat.
Billy Madden expresses himself ah well
satisfied with the showing of his new find,
Gus Ituhllu, against Auctralnn Tut Ryan.
Madden says he has never claimed that
Ruhlin wai going to be a world-beater all
at once, but that he has always maintained
that, with the experience to be gain! in a
few fights Willi good men, Ruhlin would
bother the best of them, if he did not prove
to be the fitting occupant of tile top rung
oftheladdet. Whllesatlsf Jed with Rnhlio's
work, Madden is not over-elated by the vic
tory of his man. and Ruhlin himself is
rather disapiolnted .
The big uhloan thought he could do the
175-pound Australian quicker than in
ten rounds, and when Ryan was&tiU ju his
feet at the end of the limited bout Rihlin
was fad. If the affair had been for two
rounds more, Ruhlin sayo-, Rjan would
have been out, lor he was very weakat-the
end of the tenth. Ruhlin, it seems, while
the recipient of nnny stiff body punches,
was not hurt hytheih to any great extent.
Ryan'b entire game waa to fight at dose
quarters, a directed by Jim Hall, -ind in
pursuance ot lilr own chciice of method.
The Australian proved to be a hard hit
ter, but not severe enough to worry the big
man from Akron, whose long reach enabled
him to hold his opponent away while the
latter v. as endeavoring to swing for the
Jim Hall, who backed Tut Ryan against
Gus Ruhlin in the recent bout at New Or
leans, is making strenuous pfforts to have
tne Ohio giant fight Peter Maher. Hall
says that he is assured of the financial
backing, and scouts the claim that Ruhlin
has set up of being the champion of the
The Ohio man is modest in making this
claim. He says that he is simply iaying
claim to tlie championship bec-a-iae both
Fitzslmmons and Corbett have retlr. d.
Ruhlm has made a great manyfriends here.
While he is still awkward, experienced
judges say that he has the finest physiq le
of any man in the ring, FitzsimmonB e-c
cepted, and that if he fs j.roierly handled
will make a great fighter. The club is
busily arranKlng for more fights, b'lt all
lovers of the sport agree that the limit
of ten rounds which has been placed on it
is too strict. Under such a limit th re
is hardly any iwssibility of a knoekoi.t.
Chatlle Horan ban received a telegram
from Tom O'Rouke, manager of Gecrge

The news of Tommy White's defeat by

considerable regret in sporting circles.
Whitchas.Boto speak, an unblemished rec

WOES OF OYSTER DREDGERS
jlisnsed, Ill-Fed ami Unable
Collect Their Waares.
Police Applied to by Three Men
lor Hedrehs, Hut Unable
to Afford It.
John Matron, Theodora Regan, and Jumcs
Earner, three oyster dredgers, applied to
the police yesterday for redress against tlie
captain of an oyster boat, whom they al
leged had cruelly beaten them, and put
them ashore twenty miles from Washing
ton, when they applied to him for .heir
wages. While, ot course, the matter being
outside ot the Jurisdiction of the local
police, nothing could be done by them, m
the mattei, but to assist the unfortunacs
to their homes.
The stories ot the hardships imposed
upon both the white aud black dredgivs
and the cruelties, which they undergo ot
tne hands ot unfeeling captains, are nost
shocking in their details. The pay is very
small and is suppot-ed to include pro
visions, which in every instance, is of the
cheapest and commonest kind, and insuf
ficient in quantity.
William lohuson, colored, wa3 another
oyster dredger who asked Sanitary Of
ficer Frank to assist hini yesterday after
noon. After working mora than a month
without pay on an oyster boat captained
by George Trader, and much of the time
having nothing but beans to eat, he wis
put ashore at Noininl Creek. He confirms
the story published ill The Times a week
ago regarding the killing of three -r
four men by an oyster boat captain abcrit
November 15. Two ot the men, tie fays,
were negroes and were knocked off the
boat during a fight with the enptain.
The bodies are said to have been washed
ashore neai Cedar Point and tak-.-n by
the boat on which they shipped back to
Baltimore with the statement that they
fell overboard while at work.
Johnson's experience on the Cape Charles
was thrilling, to say the least. One white
man, who asked ror some meat, was hit in
the head with a shovel by the captain. The
man endeavored to defend himself , and was
then hit with the sharp point of an oyster
hammer. The dredger was unconscious for
several hours, and it was days before Tie
was abb' ro rise on his feet. The capta-n
had lert him unattended, and the mly
dressing his wounds received was at the
hands ot his companions.
The man's name was Adams, and he,
too, was put ashore at Nominl Creek, but
rot given auj money. This was two weeks
before Johnson left the boat, and though
Adcms started for Washington to get trans
portation to Philadelphia, he has not beea
heard fiom since- Johnson ''la'ms to have
slipped at Ba'timore. The men on the
Cape Chaili'R, he says, were terribly tre.it
cd, the captain often dumping on some
woikman and beating him unmercifully.
Trader is an Old oyster captain from
Matthews county, Va., aud is much feared
by river men. Johnson applied to Capt.
Frank foL transportation to Baltimore, and
as he 1 In a precarious condition from
