At. 1i:.'t o'eloti yesterday morning the
United States forces dismounted near
Ketamnl by Cap,Hin Hourke's order and
advan'-ed carefuity on the revolutionists
with orders to make no reply to challenges,
nnd soon the enemy's pickets started the
battle. Captain Rourke then fiave the or-

made the revolutionists break and run.
Deputy Tomas Garza esraped during the
confusion, it being very dark, and not

not pursue hut returned to the river, where
he heard the revolutiont.-ts had three skiffs
ready to cross.

After staying a short time Captain

THE MV tR-CARROLL FIGHT.
Myer Kucek Out His Man in the Forty
Xew ORLEANS, Dec. '21 The Olympic
Mub was crowded with sports from all
parts of the country last night to see the
fight lietween Myer, the uStreator Cy
clone," and Carroll. The fight was well
contested in the main, Myer winning in
the forty-third round by a knockout blow.
For the first few rounds both men were
cautious, each apparently trying to dis
cover the other's tactics. Myer did most
of the leading, and, in fact, almost killed
his chances by rushing himself out of
breath. Carroll exhibited clever dodging
tactics, but was unable to escape Myer's
left in the fourteenth, and was knocked to
Twenty Rounds with Honors Even.
Neither man had much advantage up to
the twenty-first round, though both hail
taken considerable punishment. Myer's
youth and fine condition began to tell in
his favor, and in spite of the fact that he
had lx-en doing most of the leading he
showed up the fresher of the pair. After
this Myer had it mostly his own way', and
did most of the work. He knocked Can-oil
down frequently. In the forty-third th
little cyclone found the opening he had
lx-en looking for, and with a swinging
right bander landed squarely on Carroll's
jaw. Jimmy went down like a log and re
mained unconscious for several minutes ill
spite of the efforts of his seconds to revive

An Operation Performed at New York b
Save His Life.
New York, Dec. 23. Lyman J. Gag
has come very near to death, and even now
its shadow is hovering over him. At mid
night he seemed comfortable, but the phy
sicians say that no one can tell for twenty
jour hours yet whether he will live or die.
The chances of his life are in the ascen
dency, because the patient has rare nerve
and has a well cared for physical system

Mr. Sage's illness was caused by that

done yesterdav morning at 1 o'clock and
the patient rallied very satisfactorily after
the operation. and hope is entertained that
he will reeowr, but as said altox-e it cvx

"WASHINGTON", Dec. SI. A telegram was
received at the state department yesterday
from tfce United states consul general at
Ijiredi, Mexico, stating that Captain
Hardee, of the Third cavalry, together
with the United States marshal were sur
rounded near Fort Mackintosh, Mexico,
by the insurgent lead-'r. Colonel Garza,
and his band of Mexicans, General Stan
ley telegraphs Major General Schofield
that he had heard the report of Captain
Hardee and the Third Cavalry being sur
rounded by Garza's band and had sent a
troop of cavalry to ascertain the truth ol
Seem To Have Found Him at Last.
At the war department the report is dis
credited. Garza is at the head of a baud
of Mexicans which for several months has
infested the Mexican border. Garza pre
tends that he is at the head of an insurrec
tionary movement to overthrow the Mexi
can government, but so far has confined
himself to pillaging the inhabitants on
both sides of the Kio Grande and stealing
cattle. United States troops have be-n
looking for Garza for months, but his fol
lowing is so small that he has easily
escaped detection by hiding in canons.

Ho much is definitely known. After that
her identity seems to have been ex

may have compelled her to seek refuge in
