That the probabilities of a settle ment by the opposing interests in Chi cago are as remote as ever was plain ly demonstrated today, when Henry C. ,"Wallace, of Des Moines, and A. . !Ames, of Buckingham, called on the packers with a proposal from the strike leaders offering to concede the most important points in the contro versy if the employers would agree to renew the peace negotiations. Mr. Wallace and Mr. Ames were told by the packers there was no possible chance for any further conciliatory move, and that the packers were now In a position where they could Ignore labor unions, and they proposed to Ig nore the strikers.

K San Francisco, Cal., July 29 In one of tho fiercest battles ever witnessed in this city "Battling" Nelson of Chi cago tonfeht defeated Eddie Hanlon of San Francisco, the end coming iu the nineteenth round. From the time of the ringing of the Mgnal for the commencement of the fight the youngsters commenced mix ing matters In the liveliest manner. Hanlon fought In his usual fashion, but the Chicago lad early penetrated the guard of the Callforniaa, who bore several facal marks before the tenth round, testifying to the accuracy and force of his opponent's blows. It was almost an even thing until the fif teenth round, with the boys fighting fiercely. After the fifteenth the tide of battle began to go toward Nelson, who throughout, although very heavily punished about the face and body, had manifested his usual powers of en durance and assimilation of punish ment. The sound of the gong In the eight eenth saved Hanlon from defeat at that period, but In the next round he came up so badly dazed that Nelson bad him at his mercy, and was batter ing him around the ring until the local lad became so helpless that the spec tators made pretest against the con tinuance of the now one-sided fight. Simultaneously with the signal from the police caption to the referee to stop the contest, tha towel wa3 thrown Into tho ring from Hanlon's corner, and Referee Billy Reche pronounced Nelson the victor. Throughout the affray the blows of Hanlon did not have any apparent ef fect whatever upon Nelson, who came up gamely and stubbornly to the fir ing line, and always carried the bat tle to the other man's territory. At the conclusion of the battle he did not display a bruise, while Hanlon's face was bleeding and cut. m.
