The fight was to a finish, two-ounce gloves, purse $500, Queens berry rules. The battle was for blood from the start. Ryan, who was evidently the most scientific of the two, managed to avoid Doyle's heavy laR-handers, and in turn hammered the Chicago boy's face and breast almost to mince meat. At the end of the twenty-seventh, it was evident Doyle was used up, but nevertheless he wanted to fight further. Despite the fact that his eyes were closed, he staggered to the center of the Ai._,, almost crazy, and insisted on right ing it out rough and tumble. His second threw up the sponge, however, and Ryan was declared the winner. Pittsburg, Oct. s.—William Bissell, of McKeesport, and George Gillen, of Mansfield, fought this morning on a boat on the Ohio river near Rochester.

WANAMAKER'S ARGUMENT IN BE HALF OF HIS HOBBY. He Sa»s He Wants to Dovetail Two Great Machines Together for the Benefit and Convenience of the Dear People. Washington, Oct. s.—Postmaster Gen eral Wanamaker tonight made public a letter recently addressed to the chairman of the house committee on postofHces, embodying an elaborate argument in favor of his limited plan for a postal tel egraph service. Appended to the letter is a mass of matter pertaining to the sub ject, making altogether 225 pages, closely printed. The postmaster general in his letter says in part: "After" standing for a year past in the midst of the controversy over postal tel egraphy, that for over forty years has gone on with a sharper tone "and widening range, I am more than ever convinced of the wisdom and practicability of restor ing the telegraph to the postal service, and making it.what it was originally in tended to be, part of the postal system. I say this after closely studying the ar guments against the bill, made so vigor ously by the great telegraph company which is now its only visible opponent. I do not believe it is possible to argue this question down. There is a deep and far reaching conviction among the people that the telegraph service is by right part of the postal service. The measure is to give the country a vasi. en largement of the postal systec, and bring home to the people the cheap use of one of the most powerful agencies of modern commerce and civilization." As to the constitutionality of postal telegraphy, the postmaster-general says in part: • "It has been argued by learned law yers for a score of years that the gov ernment is unconstitutional. The mo tives of these gentlemen have been un true. In all cases they have been paid attorneys of those corporations whose special" interests have demanded that their monopolies should be in no way interfered with. Among other oppo nents were those who imagined the con stitution would be exposed to every sort of outrage, were they to fall sick for a day. The courts of highest appeal have settled this question; Congress set tled it in j advance of judicial action, by making the United States the owner, and the postal department the manager of tne first line of wire con structed for commercial and public use. The old government telegraph schemes were constitutional. What shall be said then of the limited postal telegraph plan which is being criticised for its bringing forward ? There is no' doubt that it is constitutional. The attorney general for my department has assured me that the conclusion that the scheme is constitutional, cannot be resisted." In concluding the postmaster general says he has alw..;'s invited the most rigid scrutiny and criticism of the measure. "It is not," he says, "a proposition to take money from the treasury, or employ additional civil servitors. It is not a proposition to put any power whatever in the hands of the government, which is not at present greater and more dan gerous where it is. It is a proposition simply to dovetail together two' great machines, co that the one shall do business equitably, and by that means make more money, which shall be will ingly accorded to it by the people; the other to utilise its present skilled and faithful energy to help supply the people with still better means of communica tion, furnished still more cheaply. It is not a proposition to buy the railroads or coal mines, sawmills or bakeshops of the country. " If others speak out for the telegraph stockholders, some one must stand for the people in the interest of the.iheaper telegraphy that they want. L believe it belongs to this department to take this stand, and 1 propose intelligently and persistently to keep this subject be fore you in the strong confidence that it will not be long before your committee will take steps to give the people tlie re lief prayer l , for."

Chicago, Oct. 5. —A Daily News Washington special says: General Pe raza, the Venezhelan minister, was seen this afternoon regarding' a sensational cable from Carracas, which says Vene zuela is on a verge of revolution, and ef forts are being made to upset the government of General Palazio, and bring back from Paris ex-President Blanco. The dispatch concludes with the declaration that Peraza is about to be removed from bis mission here be cause he published in a New York mag azine a map showing England as being, the possessor of guano territory which Venezuela is trying tahold. Peraza made short work of the cable, by showing a letter just received from the president of Venezuela. It was writ ten Sept. 26, and contains most cordial expressions of good will. President Palazio concludes by saying the republic was never in a more stable condition. Peraza feels that the cable referred to was a scare, emanating from some ma licious source. As to the map used in a New York mi gazine, Peraza says that appeared eight months ago, and the mistake in using'it was fully explained at the time. He wanted to show the route of the nroposed inter-American railroad, and for this purpose utilized the first ?outh American map available. Great Britain makes these maps, and they therefore show lines of territory as the government seeks to locate them. THE NEW TARIFF LAW. It Does Not Grow in Favor With Foreign Powers. Vienna, Oct. s.—The Austrian news papers are full of angry articles on the new American tariff, which receives more downright abuse than gen uine criticism. The government is trying to allay the excitement over the measure. The minister of finance, in addressing a deputation, frankly de clared that he was unable to exercise pressure in Washington, because Ameri can imports into Austria were so small, but he promised to try to induce Presi dent Harrisftn to grant facilities ft- the mother of pearl industries. London, Oct. 5. —The Daily News says: "The European expectation of a revolt among the American farmers against the artificial clear ness caused by the tariff, has never been realized. It is always threatened, but pVavs postponed. The idea that th»' tariff is a blow at Canadian inde pendence, is as absurd as the talk of the excited people here, who h3'Btencally dccl Vreit '.a an attack upon England." Madrid, Oct. 5. —The cabinet has de cided to suspend the application for a new Cuban tarnf, pending a reply to representations to be made to the United States government, by the Spanish minister.

San Francisco, Oct, s.—The police here express some amusement at the dispatch telegraphed from New York last night, stating that Louis Bessant, a young medical student from Paris, had been swindled out of a fortune of $15,000 by Blanche Richardson, a scheming American] girl and graduate of Vassar. Two weeks ago a woman who has an unpronounceable French name, and who speaks very litte Eng lish, arrived in this city and has since been an inmate of a house of bad repute. Soon after her arrival Chief Crowley received a telegram from Detective Ful ler, of New York, to locate the woman and keep her under surveillance. He did so and ascertained the facts stated. Bessant is also in this city and has re sumed his former relations with her. The police say that instead of being a medical student, he belongs to the class of men who are supported by fallen wcimen, and that'the only foundation for the story is the circumstance that the woman left New York before him, and carried off his life insurance policy in her trunk.

She Dies of Poison Taken With Sui cidal Intent. Wedding Bells Give Way to the Funeral Dirge—The Husband Completely Heart-Broken. Associated Press Dispatches. Redwood, Cal., Oct. 5.—A sensa tional suicide occurred here this morn ing. Last night Louise Esslinger was married to George Wehrlein. This morning she was found dead in bed. The marriage took place at the residence of C. Gonor, an uncle of the bride, and was attended by a large number of friends. During the festivities none seemed happier than the bride, who was a handsome German girl aged 22 years. When the guests were retiring, she grew hysterical, but this was not considered of much consequence by her friends. At 4 o'clock she and her husband went to their residence, a pretty cottage re cently purchased and furnished by the groom. She refused to allow him to en ter her room, and after remonstrating vainly, he was compelled to return to the residence of Mr. Gro ner to pass the remainder of he night. On again entering the house at 6 o'clock he was horrified to find his wife lying unconscious in bed, her wedding garments and bridal wreath were scattered about the room in dis order. Physicians were hastily sum moned, but pronounced life extinct. The unfortunate girl left no letter to tell why she wished to end her life. On the floor near the bed was found a piece of paper crumpled up, and in bed were some grains of a crystal substance, probably poison, the nature of which has not yet been certainly determined. Miss Esslinger had been in|Redwood six j weeks and was engaged to Wehrlein I only four weeks. It is said that she was anxious to have the wedding hast- j ened, but as the day approached she be came despondent, and at the time acted as though she was not in her right mind. From remarks frequently made by her it is surmised that a former lover in Portland, Oregon, proved false to her. Her husband is well nigh heart broken. The funeral and inquest will take place tomorrow. A Fatal Passenger Wreck. Tim Dalles, Ore.. Oct. 5. —No. 4 pas genger train was wrecked near Celilo, Dr. make.

She Is to Look Out for Poachers and Smuggled Chinese. San Francisco, Oct. 5.—-The revenue cutter Oliver Wolcott was noted as hav ing sailed from Victoria to Bering sea on the 28th ult. Today a reporter learned that the Wol cott has certainly sailed for Sitka, and intends making a cruise of surveil lance in and out of Alaska, terminating in a tour through Bering sea. It came to the knowledge of the government a short time ago that a fleet of piratical Canadian sealers had fixed upon Bering sea as a winter sealing ground. It was decided to send the cutter Wolcott to Bering sea to intercept the' poachers. But detecting and possibly seizing ! some of the Canadian sealers is one of I the smallest items in the mission out- I lined for the Wolcott. She haa also I been instructed to exercise a close sur veillance over tbe cannery stations and ! other Alaskan points, with the view of | trying to detect Chinese trying to smug- I gle themselves into the United States. Since the vigilant customs officers along the northern border have bagged big batches of Celestials who sought to cross from British Co lumbia, the Chinese have commenced to operate the new method of getting into the country through Alaska. It is believed that they are assisted by the owners of small vessels at Victoria and other British colonial ports, who take them to Alaska and manage to elude the few customs inspectors there. Arrived there, the Chinamen either go down the coast under the guise of fishermen re turning from the canneries, or land from chartered schooners at coast points of fering easy means to reach the interior. After a preparatory cruise about the Alaskan coast for the purpose mentioned, the Wolcott will proceed to Bering sea and intercept Canadian poachers. Or ders haye been given to seize any vessel found sealing in closed seas. Nominated by Acclamation.
