Terry Mcflovem Defeats
fEATHERWEIGHT'S HOT RUSHES
And fiery Attacks Knocked . Out
Erne In lhree Terrific
NkwYoRK, July, 17. Last night In
Madison Square garden, Terry McGov
ern, of Brooklyn, defeated Frank Erne,
of Buffalo, for the lightweight cham
pionship of tfce world. It was & hurri
cane fight from bell to bell, without a
seconds' let tip, except when one of
the contestants was lyinon the floor
of tho ring. McGovern used the tac
tics he said lie would. He rushed in on
Krne at the very beginning" and sent
loft and right in such quick succession
that Erne, fastas ho is, was nonplussed.
Fa-no undoubtedly is tho cleverer of
tho two. but his cleverness availed
him nothing against the bull dot' rushes
and fiery attacks of tho little feather
weight champion. Erne, of course,
trained far below his usual weight as
ho had agreed to meet McGovern at
12s pounds, which is five pounds below
Tho fighting vas so fast, that it was
impossible to keep track of the blows,
but Terry landed three blows to Erne's
two. Clinches wore frequent.
In the third round Terry floored him
twjee and, it was with difficulty
that Erne arose the aecond time. He
was gasping for breath, the blood was
running down his .tbiou partially
choking him. It was evident' that
Erne Tvas'how a '"beaten '-man and Mc
Govern started in to finish him. Terry
sent a smash to the face which landed
on Erne's-noSe, and with a couple of
blows the littl& fellow paved the way
for a knockout swing, but Erne's sec
onds seeing their man had already
enough threw up the sponge and saved
the Swiss boVer from a knockout.
A Now York paper says that DoWolf

GENERAL MILES GIVES ADVICE
Chinese Officials Who Petitioned
Prince Tuan Promptly Put
Washington, July 17. Tha deci
sion of the administration at the end of
the most eventful day is that the United
States' government is 3till not at war
with China. The big happenings at
Tien Tain, comit.g on top of the stories
of tho1 last struggles at Peking, have
not al?ected tho attitude of the admin
istration on rtiis point. The United
Statesandisa are toclmicafly t
peace'. But this statement sho'dU nAt

the part of the United States go;eivV

Iho Chinese, without regard to station,

rages of the past few weeks. 16 means
simply that the government of the
United States feels that it can best
achieve that purpose by regarding tho
status officially as ono of peace. To
hold otherwise wouVl seriously cripple

satisfaction for the outrages Americans
in China have suffered. We should
find ports of China, now open to us,
closed and all sorts of impediments
would be encountered wplch are now I
Without exceptibn to Jay the forei
r representatives in. Washington, accept-
I ed as practically certain that the for-
. eign legationsand ministers at Peking
have been wiped out. At the same
time there Is not a word confirmatory
from, any of the foreign offices, and the
conclusion is based on accumulating
unofficial data that the slaughter oc
curred about July 0th or 7th. Even
among tile high Chinese officials hope
has been about given up, but they
maintain that thero is no official infor
mation and that they are as much in
tho dark as others.
General Miles had an extended con
ference yesterday afternoon with tho
secretary of war concerning tho dis
patch of reinforcements to China. No
statement could bo
secured, but it is
understood that Miles strongly urged I
that troops be withdrawn immediatel. i
from the Philippines so that a large ;
army could be thrown into China with-1
comparatively a few days, instead of
awaiting the slow proeessof assembling
an army in this country and Cuba and
getting it to China. Notwithstanding I
General Miles recommendation, the ap-.
parent policy Is to forward troops to I
China from this country and Cuba as,

TARANMAS BJTr TRAINMFN.
These Pests and Scorpions So Thick
as to Delay Mexican Traffic.
CVRRNAVACA, Mexico, July 17.
Scorpions and Tarantulas have made
their appearance in such numbers at
Iguala and other points on tho Mexico,
Cuornavaca & Pacific railroad as to in
terfere with the operation of that line
and the transaction of other business.
So many of the trainmen have been
bitten by tho poisonous insects that the
running of trains is delayed. At Iguala
a bounty has been offered by the mu
nicipal authorities for tho killing of the
pests, and hundreds of men and boys
are employed jn slaughtering them.
Legal Tender Only to August.
Washington, D. V., July 17. Gov
ernor Allen called at the treasury de
partment yesterday and discussed with
Rican allCer for United States coln.now
being used at San Juan, Ponce and
Mayaguez. Something more than half
of the volume of money already has
been changed, but the governor thought
that the business might be greatlj
facilitated by increasing the number of
points at which (he exchange could be
made. Under the law Porto Rlcan sil
ver opasos to bo a legal tender on Aug.
1, and in view of tho shortness of tho
remaining time it is likely that Secre
tary Gnge will designate all of tho cus
tom houses and postofficas at a number
of iho principal towns at which the
people may receive American money
in exchange for their own. No defi-
nito conclusion, however, has yet been
reached on tho subject.
