New Orleans, July 8 Authentic
news from the great pugilistic battle
ground is meagre and unsatisfactory,
owing to the difficulty between the Wes
tern Union company and the manage
ment at the last moment. It had been
the original intention of the company to
string wires to the scene of the light and
send the news direct, but this scheme was
objected to by the fighters' managers on
account of the publicity it would give the
afTair previous to its transpiring. Con
sequently the general manager of the
Western Union save orders that no of
fice but the oue at New Orleans should
send any news of the tight.
New Okleans, July 8. 10 a. m.
News from the battle field is unsatisfac
tory and meagre, and nothing definite
can be obtained. First came a rumor of
a victory for Sullivan after the eighth
round, but this was subsequently con
New Orleans, July, 7. 11:80 a. m.
A dispatch just received, reports the ar
rest of both Sullivan and Kilrain by the
New Orleans, July 8. 2 p. m. It
is now reported that Sullivan won the
fight at one o'clock, after seventy-two
hard fought rounds.
The fight commenced at 9:30 a. m. and
was concluded at 1:10 p. m.
Both Fighters aret Mafely Away.
New Orleans, July 8. It became known
last night that the place finally selected for
the fight was Ricbbiirg, or Rich's mills, in
Marion Cuunty, Mississippi, 103 miles from
New Orleans, in tbe midst of a dense pine
forest. The fighters are safe iu Mississippi
beyond the troops, and are now at Richburg,
where the battln will take place. The troops
by constant marching cannot hope to reach
Ricbburg before noon to-day.
The Tit-krt-Holders' Predicament.
Those who have secured tickets to the mill
are hopeful 1(f (retting through to Rielitmrg
without any interference, claiming that as
they are not principals they are not
amenable to the law. The governor
of Mississippi has authorized the sher
iff at Nicholson to obstruct the track and
prevent access to the battle ground. This
action comes too late to prevent tbe prin
cipals from reaching the point, but if carried
I ut will prevent the ticket-holders from get
No Trlefrraphta Earllkie.
Owing to discourteous treatmeut by the
management of the fife-lit, the Western Union
Telegraph comtiany has abandoned its in
tention of giving special facilities for tele
graphing from the liattlftlel.I. The manage
ment has treated the press very shabbily,
and the leading papers and the Press associa
tion have been compelled to pay large prices
for tickets. Reports of tbe fight will have to
ho filed at New Orleans, and will be consid
erably delayed in consequence. The tele
graph compnny m art t every effort to give the
press nn.l sporting people gooil service,
rut tbe managers of the fight would not coj
operate in the effort.
JAKE GETS THERE ON TIME.

New Orleans, July 8. The train bearing
Jake Kilrain arrived here Saturday at 10:50
a. in. The train came through without stops
except for coal anil water, and was not in
terrupted in its trip through tbe hostile ter
ritory overjwhich Governor Lowery presides.
It did not take long to get the party into

Southern Athletic club, a reception commit

Jake Attends a Benefit.
After a dinner at a restaurant at which
Kilrain ate a good-sized chicken and ap
pealed for a second one, a compromise being
made on a small pullet, he went to the gym
nasium and went through a series of exer
cises, and at night be attended a sparring ex
hibition at the St Charles theatre for the
benefit of Mike Donovan, of the New York
Professor I)-nnis Butler, of this city, pro
posed three cheeri for Kilrain, winch were
given with a will, followed by three rousing
cheers for Snllivun and a tiger for Mitchell.
The windup of tho entertainment, at 10:10.
was four rounds between Donovan
'id Mitchell, in which tbe En
glish Ik.xci- showed to good advantage. Just
previous to the close, in response to repeated
cills, Kilrain deseended from the box to the
stage uii'l, after bowing in resmnse to the
cheering h received, spoke as follows:
"I thank you for your kind reception to
myself and party this eveniug, and I will not
detain you with a speech, but kindly bid all

OFF FOR THE BATTLE FIELD.

New Orleans, July 8. Boih Kilrain and
Sullivun left the city yesterday afternoon
for the point selected for tho h'lit. A train
consisting of a locomotive, a Luggage car
and two passenger coaches was made up at
tbe Queen and Crescent station and left at 4
o'clock, one car being occupied by Sullivan
and seven of his friends, ami the other by
Kilrain and some of his friends. At 6:30 p.
m. tbe arrival of both principals and their
friends at tbe battle ground was wired to
this city. ' Kilraiu's condition re -nied greatly
improved, and bis eyes were brighter and
bis movements much more active than Sat
urday. Mitchell said: If Sullivan don't
lick him in twenty minutes be won't do it in
Will Be Back With Uoml News.
The members of the athletic club, some of
whom were disappointed at Kilrain's appear
ance Saturday, changed their minds and
expressed astonishment at bis physical
development, as well as the improvement in
his demeanor. Kilrain acknowledged the
introductions to those present at the gym
nasium in a graceful and quiet manner, and
remained iu conversation until tbe announce
ment was made that carriages were in readi
ness to take the party out for a drive. Kil
rain, Mitchell, Murphy, Moore and some
other frionds then retired to their rooms and
packed their grip. When they reappeared
it was evident to all that their carriage was
not one for pleasure only but that they were
prepared for travel. As the party drove
away from the gymnasium, Kilrain called
out: "Good bye boys, I'll be back with you
shortly, and 111 bring you good news." These
confident words were accompanied by a look
of determination, and evoked loud cheers.
A Company of Artillery on Duty.
Saturday night Capt. Beanhara.of the field
artillery, received orders from the governor
to have bis command in readiness to move
at a moment's notice. At 8 o'clock yester
day af :ernoon tho artillery company, which
numbers about fifty men, assembled at the
armory, dressed in fatigne uniforms and
armed" with Springfield rifles. The appear
ance of the troops at tbe armory caused
some etcitement, but nothing is yet known
of the! iutended movement
The Sale of Tickets.
By Id o'clock yesterday morning tickets for
all tbe S00 seats in tbe ring bad been sold,
and speculators began to advance prices for
them. In some cases inner-ring tickets sold
as high as (40. It was expected that about
3,500 pople would witness the fight, and
that thi gate receipts would be (80,000.
The understanding was that if the fight
was prventsd, ticket holders would get
their n oney back except the 93 fare. Tbe
net proceeds of tbe gate money (say f 35,000)
60 per cut to the winner and 40 per cent
will go -o the loser.
The Betting All for John L.
The St Charles hotel was crowded with
sporting men ad yesterday. Sullivan was
the fav irite. so far as having a money
backing indicated. The non-betting ele
ment of the community Seemed to mpe that
Kilrain would win. Kilrain's friends de
mand tv o to one in the betting, but only 100
to seven v-flve was conceded by the Sullivan
men, and this was not readily taken. Among
tbe visitors at Sullivan's headquarters were
Sheriff Malloy, Chief of Tolice Hughes, of
Louisvil e, aad others. They were enter

HAD TO LOCK JOHN L. UP.
Muldoon Sits Down on an Inclination to
Go on a "Bat."
New Orleans, July 8. While Kilrain
bad the run of the town Saturday night the
Boston b y was closely confined in his room.
The door of the room was locked on the out
ride and Muldoon had the key in bis breeches
pocket By the letter's orders Sullivan was
not at homo to even his meet intimate
friends. The champion was growing tired
of the cloie restraint to which be has been
subjected since bo was placed in Muldjon's
hands, and Saturday morning he manifested
an inclin it ion to make a round of the town,
with a nerro can-can at night as a finale.
Thereupon Muldoon turned the key in the
oor and from the outside proceeded to read
the riot act The time, Muldoon said, was
no time for foaling; he had himself put in too
much woi k and too much money was up to
take any i isks at this late stage, and he pro
posed to bs master until the beginning of tbe
"There h one thing I want you to under
stand," he remarked to Sullivan, "you are
in for a ttree hour mill two hours of mon
keying an l one hour ef solid work. "Three
hours be d d," was Sullivan's morose re
sponse. "' dd n him, I'll whip him in
A good deal more talk of the same charac
ter was in lulged in, but it ended in an ex
pression ol unreserved willingness on Sulli
van's part to leave himself in his trainer's
Governor Nlcholls on Guard.
New Or leas, La., July 8. It is stated on
good am he rity that Governor NictmlU will

by steamboat across the lake to Hone Lsland,
where the governor believes tbe fight

gun in this city on July 2 which on Satur
day gave Duluth her first baptism of blbod.
Tho trouble was first with the gas and water
company's employes, wbo demanded tit 5
per day for labor instead of tl 50, which
they had been getting. They were joined as
the week went on by nearly all the other la
borers in town. There were, however.
few who would not quit work, and the po
lice have been guarding these men from at
tack by the strikers, wbo were eager to get
at them. The police protection was suf
ficient until Saturday afternoon, but the
chances of a riot were so good that (Sovernor
Merriam had ordered Company K of the
state militia to be in readiness for a sudden
The Strikers Gather a Mob.
About 4:M) p. m. Saturday a mob of strik
ers, headed by a number of hot-blooded men,
rallied and started for a sewer trench where
about seventy laborers were at work guarded
by alKMit thirty policempn, and made a rush
for tho cordon of police. Tho police drew
clubs and revolvers. Seeing that there was
no use to bother with i-lulw, they fired into
tbe angry mob, who also carried clubs,
pistols and stones. A volley was fired and
o:io striker lay dead, while seven more were
wounded, some most seriously. One police
man was shot in return through the jiw.
How the Ficht Itegatu
The strikers started from Twentieth ave
nui', nhile another body came down from
Third street by Fifth avenue, and made a
rush with clubs and stones. The police
stool their ground, nnd then the carnage
began. t ho did the firing first is not known.
As the st rikers made a rush a single shot was
fired. Then crack, cnu-k, crack went the
nfl.M of the- polit, followed by a fusillade
from the strikers' revolvers. Alter the first
fire came an awful hush, as though the com
batants were apprdled at the awful result
of their work. On the walk in front Qf Pied
mont, as it joins Garfield avenue, lay a man,
shot through the heart ; several more were
bleeding from ghastly wounds.
An Hour of Fusillade.
The fiht broke loose agaiu, and the strik
ers, stationing themselvn around the build
ings in different paits of the block between
Garfield and Eighteenth avenues, jwured in
a steady tire on the oliee, who were sta
tioned near the sewer ditch. From 4 o'clock
until after 5 the horrible work went on, and
the battle did not withhold its fury lo ng
enough for the wounded to leave the fi-.-lA It
was alter 5 o'clock when tbe last shot was

Over thirty were known to have been
wounded, and two innocent victims, who

tne navy department has issued an order

request irom tbe assistant trvamirar

The officials of the revenue marine bureau
which distributes flan to tha mrtnm knn,
revenue marine boats, etc, hold that a flag
with forty-two start i not a Jegalflagand
will not be until the next Fourth of July.
The law says: "On the admission of a new
state into the Union, one star shall be added
to the union of the flag, and such addition
shall take efTsct on the Fourth day of July
then next succeeding such admission.''
One Year Ahead of Time.
"Tbe flags with forty-two start are just
one year ahead of time," said a revenue ma
rine official to a reporter yesterday. "The
local contractor who furnishes our flags saya
that all the flags which he makes for private
individuals coutain the increased number of
stars. That ib all right so far as private par
ties are concerned, but the government must
have a legal flag or none."

there was not sufficient waste-weirs
nor was the dam constructed strong enough,
nor the proper material used to withstand

owners of said dam were culpable in not
making it as secure as it should have been,
especially in view of the fact that a popula

Washimwos ClTT, July 8. C. E. Creeey,
of the Pneumatic Gun Carriage company,
has filed a caveat on a device by which he
hopes to use the old monitors for coast de

any protection against modern guns. Mr.
Creeey pri.poses to take the turrets off the
monitois, and to place on each two large
cannon mounted on disappearing gun car
riages. They are to bo bighted and aimed
from below decks by the intervention of mir

water-line.and hoisted into place by pneumat

back lielow decks, and it is above the deck
