BALTIMORE, Sept. B.—The contest be tween the rival delegations from New York to the convention of the National Associa tion of Postofflc© Clerks, now in session here, consumed the greater portion of the morning session. Branch 3 being denied ad mission, a motion to restore its charter was lost. Prior to resuming the discussion of this vexed question, a committee of seven on resolutions and nine on the classification bill now before Congress was ordered to be appointed by the president. Committees to secure the passage of a pension bill for post office clerks and to obtain leaves of absence for clerks in * minor post otllces were also appointed. The con vention then took up the New York contest and heard a statement from John Keegan, of New York, a member of Branch 3. A heated discussion followed, after which a motion to restore the charter to Branch 3 was lost by a vote of 70 to 35. At the opening of tfte afternoon session Miss Rich, of Minnesota, who was formerly secretary of the association, was introduced by the chairman as ‘ one of the boys."

WAGON WHEAT, ©So ACME MILLING CO., Old 352 West Washington St. FITZHUGH LEE RETURNS AND TALKS BRIEFLY ABOUT THE SITUATION IN SUFFERING CUBA. He Says the Cause of Ex-angellna Was Injured by the Newspaper Hubbub—l,4oo Needy American*. NEW YORK, Sept. B.—Consul General Fitzhugh Lee, accompanied by his son, Fitzhugh Lee, jr., arrived from Havana on board the steamship Seguranca to-day. The general said that he had been suffer ing with biliousness for some tim’e past, but he felt very much better after the s‘er.. trip. When asked as to whether he would return to Cuba or not, the general shook his head and said: “I cannot answer that, and I would rather not talk on Cuban af fairs until I make my rVport in Washing ton.” In speaking of the case of Evangelina Cisneros, the general said: ‘‘The young woman is nowcomined in Casa Rechohidas. She has never been tried, and I do not think that It was ever intended that she should be banished. The stories of her ill treatment are very much exaggerated, and were it not for the hubbub which has been raised about her the girl would probably have been released long ago. In fact, I was given to understand that her name was on the pardon list. She has comfort able quarters and is treated as well as pos sible under the conditions. •‘‘There is a good deal of suffering in Cu ba, but the Americans, numbering about 1,400. are being cared for from the fund of sef which was appropriated for that " pflse. They receive relief daily and up the present time about 515,000 has been expended.” "Is there any sign of business improving or a change for the better in Cuba/" asked the reporter. "No, I am sorry to say there is not,” re plied the general. “And there will be no improvement until the war is ended.’.’ "When will that be?" To this last question General Lee replied in Spanish, a free translation of which is "that is too much for me; I cannot say.” General Lee and young Fitzhugh Lee went to Wtest Point to-day to see his other son, George M. Lee. who is at the Military Academy there and to-moriow they will leave for Washington. Among the other passengers on board were Robert L. Oliver, UniCed State® con sul at Marlda, Mexico, and George W. Fishback, of this city, who was said to have been sent to Havana on business for the United State® government. Mr. Fish back said that his trip to Havana was purely on private business. Mr. Fishback said thtere was a great deal of suffering all over Cuba and that the condition of the people was even worse than when he was there last as secretary to Commissioner Calhoun, when the latter was investiga ting the Ruiz cas’e. He saw Miss Cisneros at the Casa Rechohidas, and said the re ports regarding her treatment were great ly exaggerated, and that the young wom an was fairly well treated and did not complain when he was sp’eaking to her. Spaniards Fight a Duel. HAVANA, via Key West., Fla., Sept. 8. —lt is reported that the military com mander at San Nicholas, province of Havana, and the instructor of military trials under Captain General Weyler, fought a duel on account of the instructor’s charging the military commander with maladministration, with the result that the military commander was wounded. It is probable that the instructor will be sent to Spain, as duels are prohibited between military officers in active service. Denied by Spain’s Premier. MADRID, Sept. B.—lt is officially denied that the premier, General Azcarraga, has written to the leaders of the political parties saying that the government at Havana would prefer war with the United States to the intervention of that country in the af fairs of Cuba. It is also officially denied that an attache of the Spanish legation at Washington has drawn upon himself the suspicion of espionage. Train Derailed. HAVANA, Sept. B.—A train having on beard General Corral, who was on his way to take command of a brigade, was acci dentally derailed while on its way from this city to Pinar del Rio.

B.—Miss Dale Al len, of Phelps City, Mo., took an involun tary dive through space last night, landed on the ground and rose to her feet laughing and without a scratch. While sitting in a third-story window of Christian Female Col lege she lost her balance and fell out of the opening. Her body struck on a projecting roof and, glancing like an arrow, landed on the ground at least tlilrty feet from the building and forty feet below the window from whicli she fell. Her mother and sev eral girls who were conversing with her when she took the frightful plunge rushed to her side, expecting to And a mangled corpse, but she rose to her feet without aid and declared smilingly that she was not in the least injured.

INDIANAPOLIS, THURSDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 9, 1897. TWO TRAINS CRASH e- t FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT ON THE SAN TA FE NEAR EMPORIA, KAN. Collision Between the Fast Mail and an Express While Running at For ty Miles an Hour. SCORE OF PEOPLE MANGLED TEX OR ELEVEN PERSONS KNOWN TO HAVE BEEN KILLED. Two Postal Clerks Among the Dead, and a Dozen or More Passen gers Seriously Injured. * W. J. BRYAN IN THE WRECK ■ ♦ HE W AS NOT HURT, AND ASSISTED IN THE W ORK OF RESCUE. The Accident Caused by a Miscarriage of Orders—One of the Cars Burned and Others Splintered. EMPORIA, Kan., Sept. B.—One of the worst wrecks in the history of the Santa Fe Railroad occurred three miles east of here at about 7:30 o’clock to-night. Ten or twelve persons were killed and as many more were badly hurt. The known dead are: JAMES BRENNAN, engineer, Topeka. NATE HOLLISTER, fireman, Topeka. WILLIAM FRISBEY, engineer. GONZALES, fireman. J. F. SAURS. express messenger, Kansas City. R. A. DORAN, postal clerk, Emporia, died at 11 o'clock. SHURLEY, fireman. DANIEL M’KENNON, boy, Kansas City. UNKNOWN MAN, tramp. BEN WALTERS, fireman, of St. Joseph, Mo., is missing. Among the seriously Injured are: CLAUDE HOLLIDAY, Lawrence, ex press messenger, both legs broken. D. C. ERTER, Kansas City, express mes senger, legs broken, will die. JOHN DAGAN, Topeka, face smashed. J. T. BUTLER, county attorney Chase county, hip broken, may die. WILLIAM F. JONES, Kansas City, leg and arms broke. PHIL SCHIER, Kansas City, hip crushed. C. A. VANFLEIT, brakeman, Kansas City, badly bruised. WILLIAM PATRICK, Kansas City, leg and arm broken. C. D. ADAMS, City of Mexico, painfully bruised. MIKE SWEENEY, Gainesville, Tex., back hurt. B. P. METIK, Atchison, badly bruised. The fast mail train going east and the Mexico and California express, west bound, collided head on. The Mexico and California express was pulled by two loco motives, and when they struck the engine drawing the fast mail the boilers of all three engines exploded and tore a hole in the ground so deep that the smoking car of the west-bound train we.it in on top of the three engines and two mail cars and balanced there, without turning over. The passengers in the smoking-car escaped through the windows. The front end of this car was enveloped in a volume of stifling smoke and steam belchirfg up from the wreck below, and the rear door was jammed tight in the wreck of the car behind. The wreck caught fire from the engines. The cars in the hole and the smoking-car burned to ashes in no time. In climbing out of the smoking-car several men fell through the rifts in the wreck below, and it is impos sible to tell whether they escaped or were burned to death. * The west-bound train carried seven or eight coaches, and its passengers included many excursionists who had been to hear Hon. W. J. Bryan at the county fair at Burlingame. Mr. Bryan himself was on the train, but was riding in the rear Pull man, some four hundred feet from the cars which were wrecked. He states that nothing but a heavy jolt was experienced by the passengers in his coach. Mr. Bryan helped to carry out the dead and wounded. One poor fellow who was badly maimed called to Mr. Bryan and said: "I went to hear you to-day; I am dying now, and want to shake your hand and say God bless you. If you possibly can, Mr. Bryan, get me a drink of water.” Mr. Bryan went into the fas£ mail car, one end of which was burning, and came out with the drink of water., which he gave to the suf fering passenger. He brought out cushions for others of the injured and was every where .present to minister to the wants of the suffering. The engineer of the west-bound train had received orders to meet the fast mail at Emporia and was making up lost time. These two are the fastest trains on the Santa Fe system, and the west-bound train must have been running at a speed of at least forty miles an hour. The west-bound express was going around a slight curve, and met the fast mail probably within two hundred feet. Os the seven or eight cars making up the Mexico and California ex press, only the mail, baggage and express and smoking cars were destroyed. The coach following this smoker was badly splintered. There were not more than a dozen passengers on the fast mall, all In one coach, and while none of them were seriously Injured, their shaking up was Ter rible. Every set in the coach was torn from the floor and many floor planks came up with the seats. One man, John Sween ey, was thrown over three seats and through a window, but escaped with only scratches and bruises. The other cars of the fast mail, a baggage and an express, wero wrecked. First Reports Exaggerated. EMPORIA, Kan., Sept. B.—At midnight it became apparent that the earlier estimates of the number of dead wero exaggerated, and it is now apparent that the number of dead will not exceed ten or eleven. During the excitement early in the*evening it was reported that nearly all of the six postal clerks on the two trains were killed or miss ing. Two of the clerks were killed. All of the others, save one, are more or less seri ously injured. The mail clerks who are hurt are W. F. Jones, R. O. McGee and Claude Holliday. The latter may die, as both his legs are broken and he is otherwise badly hurt. Clerk E. C. Fletcher escaped serious Injury. The dead were brought to Emporia. At midnight a special train left Emporia, bearing seventeen of tl.e Injured to Topeka, where they will be cared for in the railroad hospitals. It is stated that the wreck was caused by a miscarriage of orders from the train-, master. At Emporia the east-bound fast mail train receiver ord'ers to pass the Cal ifornia express at Lang, seven miles east. Another order was sent to Lang for the California express to take the siding there, but this order was not d’elivered, and the west-bound train passed on, the trainmen expecting to pass the fast mall at Empo ria. • ' SHOOK MANY HANDS. Public Reception by President McKin ley at Somerset, Pa. SOMERSET, Pa., Sept. B.—The streets of this town were thronged to-night with peo ple, one thousand of whom were visitors from different parts of the country, the oc casion being the public reception by Pres ident McKinley, held at the Endsley resi dence, where the President and Mrs. Mc- Kinley are .visitors. The reception began at 7:30 o’clock, and for two hours a line of visitors passed through the house, each grasping the President's hand. In the par lor sat the President's wife, Mr. and Mrs. Abner McKinley, Dr. and Mrs. Endsley, Miss Mabel McKinley, the Misses Kitty and Ella Endsley and Mr. and Mrs. P. A. Schnell. The President this morning announced his determination to remain here till Mon day, and this afternoon declined an invita tion from a delegation of prominent citi zens of Johnstown, headed by the mayor, who invited him to visit the flood city be fore gdlng home. ATTEMPTED ROBBERY. Bandits Pile Ties ou the Track and Fire on a Train. LATIIROP, Cal., Sept. B.—The Southern Paciiic express train, No. 17, from San Francisco to Los Angeles, was held up at a switch near Morrano at 9 o’clock this even ing. Elaborate preparations had been made by the train robbers, who piled ties across the track and had set the pile on lire. As the train slowed up, the robbers, who were standing beside a fence near the track, tired live shots at the train. A tramp riding on top of the baggage car was tne only person wounded. Two deputy sheriffs, who happened to be on the train, tried to return the lire, but the robbers, becoming fright ened, ran across the fields in the direction of the San Joaquin river, without making any further attempt to loot the train. OHIO GOLD DEMOCRATS. They Decide to Pat Up a Ticket, and Will Make Nomination* To-Day. COLUMBUS, 0.. Sept. B.—Quito a num ber of the delegates to the state conven tion of the National Democratic party ar rived in the city this afternoon, and about fifty were present at the preliminary con ference held at the Neil House to-night. S. 11. Holding, of Cleveland, presided at the conference, which was held behind closed doors. The committee on nomination of the state ticket decided that a ticket should be placed In the field, there being only one dissenting vote on the committee. Hon. John H. Clark, of Youngstown, has posi tively refused to be a candidate for Gov ernor on the ticket, and the place now lies between A. E. Merrill, of Sandusky, and Judge Thomas A. Beers, of Bucyrus. The committee on resolutions was in session un til a late hour, and its deliberations were carefully guarded. It is understood the res olutions will reaffirm the Indianapolis plat form, favor the nomination of a candi date for United States senator and advise the nomination of legislative tickets in Cuyahoga, Lucas, Hamilton and all other counties where such nominations shall be deemed advisable. The convention will meet in the morning at 10 o’clock, and It is expected that fully 150 delegates will be in attendance when the convention is called to order. Judge Thomas Beers, of Bucyrus, will be the temporary chairman and Max May, of Cincinnati, the temporary secretary of the convention. The organization will probably he made permanent'. Ex-Con gressman W. D. Bynum will make an ad dress, which is expected to sound the key note of the campaign. Letters will also be read from ex-Secretary of the Treas ury John G. Carlisle and Hon. Henry Wat terson. Out of respect to the authors the central committee refused to make these letters public until they are read to the convention. Mnssa ell u Mettz Prohibitionists. BOSTON, Sept. B.—The twenty-seventh annual convention of the Massachusetts Prohibition party w*as held in the Young Men’s Christian Association Hall to-day. The Rev. B. C. Oates, of Beverly, was per manent chairman. The platform condemns both of the old parties of the State, both containing, as asserted “within their ranks a large saloon element, and both for the sake of political ascendency, or the greed of office, are cowardly subservient to the saloon parties. Such parties,” the resolu tion continues, "are not only powerless to remove the evils we deplore but a vote given to them implies an indorsement of the license policy and Involves a political alliance with rum sellers, distillers and brewers, of which these parties are in a measure composed; an alliance which fur nishes to every true and consistent friend of prohibition ample reason for a separate political organization.” The following ticket for state officers was chosen by the convention: Governor, Prof. J. Bascom. of Williamstown; lieutenant governor. Willard O. Wylie, of Beverley; secretary* of state, Edwin Saw telle, or Brockton; treasurer, Robert C. Habberly, of Hyde Park; auditor, Herbert M. Small, of Templeton; attorney general, Wolcott Hamlin, of Amherst. Raines Excise Law Denounced. SYRACUSE. N.

RESTS WITH INDIANA SETTLEMENT OP THE MINERS’ STRIKE DEPENDS ON HOOSIERS. If the DelesratM from Thin State Vote Agninst the Columbus Agreement the Strike Will Go On. NOTHING DONE YESTERDAY EXCEPT TO FIX REPRESENTATION IN THE CONVENTION. Majority of the Delegate* Now at Co lumbus Seemingly Opposed to Ac cepting the 65-Cent Rate. COLUMBUS, 0., Sept. B.—'The interstate miners’ convention adjourned this evening' without having taken a vote on the ques tion of accepting or rejecting the settle ment of the strike. The prospects for the acceptance of the 65-cent proposition afib somewhat doubtful; in fact, a canvas of the situation shows a majority of the votes, unless some changes should be brought about, will be cast against it. The greater part of the afternoon session of the convention was secret, the delegates listening to speeches from National Presi dent Ratchford and State Presidents Firms, of Ohio; Knight, of Indiana; Car son, of Illinois, and Dolan, of Pittsburg. All of the officers, with the exception of Mr. Carson, argued in favor of the accept ance of the Pittsburg operators’ proposi tion. They told the delegates very plainly that if the proposition was rejected the strike would fall utterly; that the contest could not be continued, as all resources had been exhausted. They advised that, irasmuch as the strike had been precipi tated In the Pittsburg district, it was very prop'er that it should be settled. President Carson, of Illinois, told the del egates just as plainly why he could no*t support the proposition for a settlement. He said the Illinois miners were practically ignored by it. The operators of his Statta had notified him that they would not abid'e by another settlement made with the Pitts burg operators. In many of the Illinois districts, moreover, the miners had signed ironclad contracts which run until next May. Should the Pittsburg, Ohio and In diana miners reeunm operation, the Illinois operators would bo compelled to open their mines also and the only resource the min ers of the State would have would be a lo cal strike, for which thvy were unprepared. The best they could do would be to accept the operators’ terms and that would even tually force a reduction again in the other States. The most important action of the con vention to-day was in determining the ba sis of representation. Some of the dele gate® wanted a rule that no delegate should cast more than six votes. This, if adopted, it is claimed, would have settled the. ques tion of the acceptance of the strike settle ment very quickly. It was the sentiment of the convention, however, that represent ation should be fixed so that all miners should have a voice in the settlement. Ac cordingly, it was decided that one vote should be cast for every one hundred min ers represented- This makes the votes, to be cast by each State about as follows- Western Pennsylvania, 230; Ohio, 280; West Virginia, 110; Indiana, 60; Illinois, 200. The Illinois vote, which will be cast against the acceptance of the operators’ proposition, will about offset the vote of western. Penn sylvania (Pittsburg district.) The vote of Ohio is about equally divided on the propo sition; also the West Virginia. This prac v tically leaves the balance of power In the hands of the Indiana delegates Should they vote with Illinois, which some of the delegates say they have instructions to do by inference, if not by direct language, the proposed settlement will undoubtedly be de feated, The Indiana delegates say they are instructed not to vote in favor of the op erators’ proposition unless a general settle ment will be effected by It. In view of the position of the Illinois miners, they do not see their way clear to vote to accept the proposition. It develops to-night that the vote of the Pittsburg district will not be unanimous In favor of accepting the settlement, as some of the delegates have stated openly they would not vote for It. The leaders of the miners are doing some quiet missionary work to-night and have hopes that they will be able to turn the tide in favor of a settlement. To-morrow the members of the national executive board will be heard by the convention, and as they strongly In dorse the settlement, their views may have considerable weight with the delegates. The convention is one of the largest delegate gatherings the miners have ever had, there being ISO delegates on the ground and more expected to arrive during the night and morning. WILL NOT SURRENDER. Strikers Will Continue the Fight Against the De Armitts. PITTSBURG, Pa., Sept. B.—The fight of the miners against the New York and Cleveland Gas Coal Company Is to be waged to the bitter end. If the strike is declared off in the rest of the district at the Columbus convenion it will still be kept up at the De Armitt mines. A secret confer ence between the leaders of the miners and the camp leaders has been held and a plan outlined for the continuance of the fight. This plan took definite shape, and will be presented to the Columbus conference, where its adoption is almost a foregone conclusion. The idea is to wage a national fight against this company. The miners of the Pittsburg district, it is argued, cannot hope to maintain a mining rate or 65 cents a ton for any length of time if the mines of the New York and Cleveland Gas Coal Cos. are to be allowed to work at a rate qf 54 cents a ton. This would give the latter company an undue advantage over ah the rest in the matter of selling their coal, and it would not be long until the other operators would begin to ask their men to bring down their price. Consequently, the strikers argue, it behooves the miners of the Pittsburg district especially to see that the De Armitt mines are kept idle until such time as the company sees fit to give its men the same price for their work as the other operators. The plan which was formulated at the secret conference is that a national fund shall be established to curry on the fight. It is proposed tc pay the men at the De Armitt mines who remain out on strike a certain amount of monev which will be sufficient to prevent them from go ing back. It is expected that all competitive fields will be brought into this arrangement and that the scheme will be successfully carrieu out. __ In Destitute Condition. CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Sept. Repre sentatives of the striking miners in upper East Tennessee are in Chattanooga beg ging for aid for their brethren. The men asking for assistance say that the condi tion of the strikers and their families at stations along the Cincinnati Southern road io East. Tennessee and southern Ken tucky is indeed pitiable. They declare that PRICE 3 CENTS. hundreds of families are without food and decent clothing and that men, women and children are suffering for the necessities of existence. They say there is no prospect of a settlement of the strike, whioia has . been going on since May 1, the strikers, they declare, beinif willing to suffer hunger and privation rather than work for the low scale of wages offered by the operators. Funds for Miners’ Relief. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. MUNCIE, Inti., Sept. S.—At a meeting of the committee, headed by Mayor Cromer, to collect funds for the striking miners to night, another 3100 was reported as having been collected to-day, making a total amount of 1633.35, which has been for warded to headquarters- In Indianapolis, or will be after the collections of to-day have been remitted.

B.—The annexationists are very much w-orried over the discovery of an alleged at tempt on the part of tho anti-annexatlon ists to influence Senators Morgan and Quay, who are expected to arrive here soon on a tour of investigation. They say that Senators .White, of California, and Thurs ton, of Nebraska, w-ho will lead the fight against annexation in Congress this winter, will also visit Hawaii and attend the mass meeting of the natives, which, it is alleged by the annexationists, has been called , for the purpose of convincing the senators that the natives bitterly oppose annexation. It is stated that Senators White and Thurs ton will superintend the drafting of a mon ster petition to Congress in which the Ha waiians will assert that the-government was torn from them through the action of American Minister Stevens. It is also al leged that the mass meeting will be con ducted entirely by Hawaiians and will be made as dramatic as possible. The idea is to work upon the sympathies of Senator Morgan and persude him, if possible, that the natives have been deprived of lands and power by a handful of rich and powerful v/hites, backed by a treacherous American minister. It is believed that the ex-Queen may arrive on the same steamer as the senators, and that she will address the people at the mass meetings. The second ceri of the anti-annexation ists will be played on the arrivel here, lade In September, of Senator Pettigrew, of 3outh Dakota: Lee Mantle, of Montana, and Frank Cannon, of Utah. They are now in Japan and China, studying the silver question. Before they sailed on the Em press from Victoria, B. C., they secured re turn passage by the Pacific mail steamer Doric, due hejre from Yokohama on Sept. 24, and announced their intention of re maining over a week in this city to study the annexation question. The ambition of the North German Lloyd Steamship Company people is to extend their lines on all waters, and they will, sooner or later, make a bid for Honolulu business. Already the company has issued a large number of charts and maps, which have been distributed freely about the city, containing the proposed routed from Yokohama to Sun 1 Francisco via Honolulu, Australia to San Fran cisco and from Yokohama to Victoria, B. C. Some of the company’s big steamers now traversing the Atlantic hnve been found too slow for the service on that ocean. Boats are now being built which will make twenty-three knots an hour. The North German Lloyd Company people are equipping tho Atlantic service entirely with these fast boats. The slower boats, ca pable of going from fifteen to seventeen knots an hour, it is said, will be brought to the Pacific ocean to establish the Austra lian-Victoria-Honolulu and San Francisco routes. Tho Supreme Court has decided that the income-tax law- passed by the last session of the Hawaiian Legislature is unconsti tutional. Alvin R. Havkins, a young man from jalesvllle, Tex., died in this city yesterday morning from blood poisoning. The de ceased was a nephew of the Governor of Tennessee The United States steamer Marlon left for Mare island on the 27th. President Dole has issued a proclamation calling the Senate to meet in special ses sion on Sept. 8. instead of the 14th, as previously announced In an Associated Press dispatch. After the annexation treaty is ratified the Senate will adjourn until the regular session. An attempt to bring negro laborers to this country has failed. The matter was re ferred to some Southern senators for an opinion. A telegram brought here on the 26th by the steamer knocks the scheme in the head. The Southerners, including Sen ator Morgan, object to any attempt to take their labor from them. NEGRESS PRACTICING LAW. First Woman In the South to He Ad mitted to the liar.

B.—Pursuant to the request of the state board of live stock commissioners the Governor to-day issued a proclamation prohibiting the importation of any cattle from Tennessee and Arkansas into Illinois except In accordance with the regulations prescribed by the board for the handling of Southern cattle.

George Slier said to a press representative after tho row had subsided: “Ryan had the better of the last round, but there was only one decision possible under the cir cumstances and I gave it. There W'as no necessity of police Interference, as both men were strong enough to continue the fight." Ryan said: • “I had McCoy whipped as sure as preaching. I started him with a series of inside upper cuts, and I would have finished him before many rounds were over. The cut which you see over my right eye was caused by McCoy’s elbow, and was unquestionably a foul blow. I stand ready to meet tho •‘Kid” again at any time and at any weight. He can weigh 185 pounds If he chooses to do so, and I will whip him without tho shadow’ of a doubt.” MoCoy said: "I was not hurt in tha least. In the last round 1 was just let ting Ryan wear himself out and then I would have started in to finish him. As for the cut over his eye, if he got it it was his own fault for not looking after himself. I w’lll fight him again If he wants another chance.” “Nat” Fenton, McCoy’s hacker, created a scene by jumping Into the ring and shout ing that the thing had been fixed. "This man,” ha said, pointing to Police Inspector O’Brien, “knew’ at 6 o'clock that he was gojng to stop the fight, and I knew it, too.” There was a scene of the greatest confu sion, and, had not a strong force of police men been on hand, trouble would have en sued. There were 3,500 people In the rink, with McCoy a strong favorite in the betting, and many of them thought that they had beer* bunkoed, and did not hesitate to expreog their feelings.
