ARRIVAL OF Till GIAN1S.
Shortly after 9 o'clock a great shout from
the multiiude proclaimed the appearance of
Sullivan, who jumped lightly upon the itsge
and took his position In the upper comer.
His eyes were bright, there was a smile or
confidence on his face, and his whole appear

There was another roar when his opponent
showed his huje frame upon the platform.
Slade looked confident and resolute as he

Both were dretsed in the ordinary boiicg
costumes, being bared to the waist. Sullivan
was attired in white undershirt, flesh colored
tights, while stockings and black palters.
The Maori wore a white undershirt, white
ghls and black gaiters, with low white socks.
ney look seats In opposite coiners. A num
ber of sporting friends and backers clustered
around Sullivan, while I'm Mace was at the
back of Slade.
The Australian looked fat, but alsj muscu

evidently received a thorough training . After
the men had been carefully rubbed down Pop
Whitaker announced that Barney Aaron had
been chosen referee and Jack Davis time
keeper, and that there was to be no wrestling;
the contestants must obey at once when the
referee told them to break.
Time was called for
HIE FIRST ROUND
at 9:17. The men shook bands and went at
each other in hammer and tongs style. Sul
livan was by far the most alert, and planted
his blows wherever he pleased", receiving very
little punishment in return. Sullivan deliv-

ters and rapid exchanges took place. A
"break" was called by the referee and they
then sparred for an opening which Sullivan
obtained. Suddenly his right flew out with
tremendous force and the Australian giant
measured his length on the floor. The spec
tator,! threw up their hats and yelled them
selves hoarse. The excitement was tre
mendous, but the men in the ring were at
work again, and soon a breathless silence suc

then Sullivan closed in and began raining
blows all over his opponent's face and chestt
but the Maori soon had enough, running to
the ropes, Sullivan assisting in the movement
by a heavy blow on the back of his head and
neck. A well directed blow sent the Maori
between the ropes and off Ihe platform head

scenes at the first knock-down were repeated.
Slade climbed upon Ihe platform again, and
after a little sparring the round came to
I.VTIIE SECOND ROUND
Sullivan took things a little more easily, con
tenting himself with flooring the Australian
once. Both were slightly winded; the Boston
man, however, being in much the best condi
tion. Slade's blows lacked force, and only
once did he come near slugging Sullivan. The
rouna ciosea witn the .Maori in evident dis

apparently, to settle the thing then and there,

blow with his right hand under the left ear,
lifted him off his feet and sent him sprawling

When Slade lifted his head blood was pouring
from his nostrils, lie appeared dazed and
unconscious of his surroundings. Sullivan
stood over him. Inspector Thome and Cap
tain Williams then rushed upon the platform
to stop the fight, but Slade made their inter

and when he was helped to his feet he limned
slowly to his corner and almost dropped into

Sullivan was at once declared the winner.

hands with Slade.
The opinion was freely expressed that Slade

he completed arrangements for a set-to be

How to Remove a Tight Ring.
From tho Langon Oaz. des Hop.
A novel method of effecting the removal of
a ring which has become constricted around a
swollen finger, or in other similar situation,
consists simply in enveloping Ihe afflicted
member, after Ihe manner of a circular band'
ace. in a lcocih of flat India rubber braid.
such as ladies make use of to keep their hats
on Ihe top of their heads. This should be
accurately applied beginning, not close to
tne ring, out at tne up 01 tne linger, and leav
ing no intervals between the successive turns.
so as to exctt its elastic force gradually and
gently upon the tissues underneath. When
the binding is completed, the hand should be
held aloft in a vertical position, and in a few
minutes the swelling will be prcceptiblr di
minished, i fie bram is then taken oil and
when, after another five minutes, the finger, If
again rapidly uncovered, will be small enough
or tne ring to De removed witn ease.
Decrease of Immigration,
The report of the Chief of the Bureau of
Immigration to July I, 1881, shows that
while for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1882,
the number ol immigrants into the country, by

A proposed French law provides that every
head of a family who has more than four

this country needs is a law giving married
