Chicago, Oct. 3. Bruised, battered, and
bleeding, the contending city and county
factions In yesterday's Republican pri
maries retired from the field of conflict to
tnkoabrlcf rest preparatory to fighting
the battle to a finish in today's conven-
- tion. Broken heads and block eyes in
more than a score of primary precincts at
tested the fierceness of the battle waged
betv.-ecu tho city and county factions for
control of tho convention nnd supremacy
In tho load party organization. Never be
fore, it U said, in tho history of Cook
- county were such scenes enacted as were
witnessed at many polling places In the
First, Second, Third, Fifth, Sixth, Sev
enth, Ninth, Tenth, Twelfth, Twenty
third and Thirtieth wards. The disrepu
taMo element, irrespective of party poli
tics, was attracted to the polls by the bitter
pnrtlwin surroundings, and rioting and
wrecking of polling booths was the gen
Il-!ga of Terror in the Wards.
The reMilt of the riots at many polling
places will lie made manifest in the con
vention. There will bo contesting delega
tions from tho wards mentioned, and the
bitterness aroused by the events of the day
will seriously interfere with the prospects
of harmony. In tho First Ward gangs of
toughs kept the ward in a reign of terror
from the time the polls opened until they
closed. Neariy every polling place in the
ward was raided by a gang which was
working for the city faction. Barricades
erected by the county faction were broken
down, ballot bozes seized, and the city
faction held possession during the re
mainder of tho day. In other wards sim
ilar disgraceful scenes were witnessed. In
tho first precinct of the Ninth Ward a
county faction gang raided tho polls,
threw tho judges and clerks out and took
possession of the ballot box. The judges
and clerks thrown out opened another
polling place next door. -
IK':ent Citizens Stayed at Home.
In the fourth precinct of the Twelfth
ward the city gang raided tho polling
placj and threw the judges and clerks
who belonged to the county faction into
tho street. The evicted judges went across
tho street and opened another polling
pluoe. but the gang followed them up.anil
breaking the ballot-box into splinters
drove tho judges away from tho vicinity.
The Sixth ward was also a scene of dis
order nnd fighting. Several bloody fights
characterized the primaries in this ward.
So f;ir as can be learned nobody was kilted
at the. primaries, but scores of persons
were more or less injured. In tough dis
tricts decent citizens remained away from
tho primaries, not caring to imperil their
lives by attempting to vote. At n lato
hour last night returns Indicate that the
county faction will have a majority ol
about sixty in the convention.

Austin, Oct 8. There will be no prize
tight at Dallas Oct 81 between Corbert
and Fitzsimmons. This fact was settled
yesterday afternoon by the Texas legisla
ture in exactly three hours by the watch.
The two committees one in the senate
and the other in the house gave an audi
ence to the Dallas attorneys all the morn
ing to ascertain their object ions and pro
tests to the passage of the law. After
hearing the gentlemen until .noon the two
committees adjourned. When the two
houses again met at 8 p. m. both commit
tees were ready to report and the senate
bill was very promptly considered. From
the time the bill was placed before the
senate until it finally passed was exactly
fifty -five minutes. During this time Sen
ator Bean opposed tho bill and Senator
Laskcr spoke in Its favor.
Only Six Men Against the BUL
These were tho only two gentlemen who
spoko on tho bill, tho balance satisfying
themselves by voting. The vote on the
final passage of the bill was 27 ayes and 1
any, Dean being the negative voter. The
bill was Immediately scut over to the
house and at . 4 o'clock that body began
discussing it, substituting the senate bill
for the house bill. After several gentle
men had spoken on the bill and the
emergency feature pro und con a final
Tote was reached at 6 o'clock, precisely,
and the bill passed the house, by a vote of
1 10 to 6. Thus within three hours did the
Texas legislature put an end to prize
lighting in Texas. On Tuesday it would
have been impossible to pas3 a bill with uii
emergency clause. The administration
forces readily saw that the minority
would "do" them if the matter came to a
vote, so they immediately wired all their
friends to come here immediately, and
then sat about killing time until their
forces could arrive.
How n Great Mute Was Rescued.
They bad eighty-two only Tuesday
night, but the absentees came flocking in
nn yesterday's trains. Each additional
lirjrVd aded to the adminisiration forces,
aiii&wlicn everything was arranged tho
rush' for tho vote we nu-.de. The fight
management was confused by the way
the solons came in aud practically gave up
tho fight by 3 o'clock in the afternoon. It
was almost a certainty in the inornlug
that the Populists would be called over to
the Dallas side of the question, but a cog
was slipped and on the vote they voted
with the administration forces, which
cinched the matter. Governor Culber
son's friends consider it a great victory
for him and lost no opportunity to con
gratulate him on tho outcome. The. bill
is so strict that a gymnastic association
could not have a boxing contest for a
medal among its own members.
WHAT IS SAID AT DALLAS.
Stuart Declares That the Fight Will Coma
Off, bnt Not in Dallas.
DALLAS, Oct. 3. Dallas people thronged
tho streets discussing tho news from Aus
tin last night, and the general sentiment
is that the question is finally settled, and
that all idea of holding the fciill here must
be abandoned. Said Dan Stuart to an
Associated Press reporter: "The contest
will not come off in Texas. We have pro
ceeded so far under the law. The legis
lature was called in to remedy the defec
tive law, and that is an end' of it. Tho
officers of tho club will meet here or in
New York and decide what to do. We
have three points in view as a location."
All ho would say about tho governor
was: "He has done what he thought was
his duty. Nor' do I look upon the result
as any reflection upon my course. I have
proceeded tinder the law as it was, fairly
and squarely, doingTny best to keep my
contract with all concerned. I will pro
ceed under the law as it is, and hunt other
fields. You sec I am now and have been
"Then the contest will come off t" was
"Yes. sir; the contest is coming off. but
more of that hereafter."
Another Goveraon Sorely Worried.
f Louisville, Oct 3. The authorities of
Louisville do not propose to have the fight
between Griffin and Murphy next Mon
day night interfered with by the governor
of tho state. Chief Taylor says be has al
ready given his consent to the fight, but
will have a man present and if it becomes
brutal will have it stopped. Sheriff Plhiiiz
is not concerned over the governor's atti
tude, lie says the governor cannot call
out the militia except by request of the
sheriff of the county in which it is needed,
and that there will bo no occasion for a
request. Governor Brown, meantime, is
determined that the fight shall not take
