been dragging along ever since.
Under thn Norton art, repealing the

can be bad tir a greater crime than
manslaughter, in rases committed
prior to it-s piussage. Loskn was never
charged wiih actively participating in
thn murder, but was charged as an ac-
cnss'iry before, thn fact, and as the

of manslaughter the defendant was
released. Schullz will be tried fur

Fits May Fight.
Buffalo. N. V., June 14. John L.
Sullivan arrived in Buffalo this even
iug, in company with bis backer.
Frank B. Dunn of Boston, and linrae
dialely started on a hunt fur Champion
Bt Fitssininioiis. The rival pugilists
came together at the Lceum theater,
where Fitssimmnnii' Vaudeville com
pany is holding forth.
Sullivan wanted to talk fight light
away, hut was prevailed upon to wall
until thn conclusion of tbe per
formance. At 11 o'clock to-night Sullivan, Filx
Simmons, Qui mi, Martin Julian and n
host of other sports met at the Tiff
ham. Sullivan Issued a formal chal
lenge to Fitcsimmons for a finish fight
for the world's championship aud n
aide bet of 95000. Dunn produced
91000 to bind the match. Fitrslm
uiuus at first declared tbat he thought
be bad earned a rest and did not In
tend to fight again for at least a year,
but on Sullivan urging him strongly
to arrange a match, tbe champion
promised to take the matter under con
sideration and give Sullivan a definite
answer shortly. Tbe meeting between
the fighters was quite friendly.

terrific combat iimk place this after-'

never be seen again in the United Stales
at any rale. A io)al Bengal tiger, sup

As soon as I lie, side allows have fin

some of the laigest xerpenl.s ever seen
in this L-ountn, appeals in llm side
show and just as aim was almut to
leave for dinner, it nccuried lo hnr to
give a big boa constrictor a little ex
ercise in the grasj, of course in charge
nf a competent attendant. She look
the snake nut of its Imix and placed ii
upon tbe ground, outside the side, show
tent and adjoining thn shin wall of the
menagerie. The man was left to
watch bis snakeship and the enrhanter
went to the dining tetit. But hn at
tendant thought it wasn't necessary to
herd thn snake ton closely, for it didn't
seem inclined to move an inch. So
he went tn the front of ihn tent to
rbat with somn of thn men. He
turned around after a miniiin'biit his
snake had disappeared. Not raring
to have hla lapsn from duly discovered
the pan started tn find him. But the'
snake was gone and not a "ijjn of him
could he see all where. Within iiIhhii
two minutes fioui the time he dixnp
peaied thele came from the meiiaeiie
a flightfiil. eai-plilling )i- thai
hi ought every sleepy aniin.il and man
in lb" lilacn lo his feet in an iiislaiil.
The shllek ratlin fiora the lljfei'a cige
where it HeniuiMloiis suailiog iiiiil
thumping was olng on. Th uei
milled up tn sue, what w.ts tin uii'iei
and they found the big lliii l-f.i..i
snake. He had ciawled under the
side wall, enteied llm cagrf of lh ti
gers, pounced upon one of lliem lhat
was asleep and in an ineitul had his
deadly folds till ice around the ) el low
striped body. It was the application
of a murderous pressmn that caused
I he fearful shilek. Iron feeding folks
prmta, pole., cluh.1. anything and
everything that canrn to hand were
used to beat the serpent off. The ti
ger's throat was in a coil and so were
his forelegs. He was powerless, des
pite his tremendous strength and was
slowly but surely strangling to death.
The oscillating bead of thn monster
swayed to and fro, five feet out of his
reach aud bis vicious roils grew tight
er and tighter. At this juncture the
snake charnier rame in on a run, hav
ing been called by tbe shiftless attendant
before she had reached the dining tent.
She saw tbn situation at a glance and
uttering a sharp command in some un
intelligible language, reached through
the bars aud caught the boa' by the
neck In a second or two his coila
relaxed peiceptibly. He had the tiger
unconscious now and almost squeezed
into. Reluctantly he unwound his
writhing body from that nf his victim
and a few afoxuils Uter wits pulled out
through the feeding grates, as limp as
a wet rag and returned to his cage.
HaA not a re8-uer appeared in the
pei sun nf a snake cbaimer, Ju't when
he did, it thousiind-dollar gT would
have been charged to profit and lo-s.
I he cncus men say they never expect
to see such a thiilling tight agaiu.
