ALL BUSINESS IS AT A STANDSTILL Many of the Merchants and Bankers Who Are Disgusted With Genera Weyler's Mismanagement Have Ofl'cred Money to Gomel and MacooTexas Cowboys Perform Excellent Service With Maeeo's Cavalry. New Turk, Dec. 2. The Ward Line steamship, Yumurl, recently up from Huvamt, brought news of the revolu tion which lias greatly encouraged the Cubans in this city. The Yumurl was in the harbor of Havanva on the day of the second departure of Captain General Weyler In quest of Maceo. A Cuban who had escaped to Mexico was one of the llrst cabin passengers. He came on a secret mission to the Junto and traveled under an assumed name. He said this morning that ev erything was in confusion In the city. Soldiers were tramping through the streets and officers were dashing about with orders. The moat rigid watch was kept on persons leaving the city far fear that news of the movements of the Spanish army would reach the In surgents. All the efforts of the Span iards to prevent this information from reaching the Culmns, however, were futile. The Cubans knew Weyler's every move. They had spies distrib uted all through the city and the Span lards had no means of detecting them. These spies were in constant commu nication with the armies of Gomez and Maceo. business In Havana was at a standstill when the Yumurl sailed. Half the stores were shut up and scarcely anybody except Spanish sol diers were to be seen in the streets. Persons suspected of Insurrectionary leaniiiKS were watched by spies and were in contant dunger of being thrown Into prison. In a letter to a Cuban In New York, which escuped the Spanish censors, Is the statement that a number of Havana bankers who have hitherto held aloof from the revolution huve sent word to Gomez and iMnceo that they would let them have money to buy arms with if they would hurry the war to a conclusion. These bankers, It Is said, are very much annoyed at Weyler's mlsmun aKement of affulrs, and in consequence their business hus been seriously Im paired. TEXAS COWBOYS GOOD FIGHTER Austin Aguero, who left this city on one of the recent expeditions, hus written on account of Weyler's recent defeat in Pillar Del Kio to friends here. Augcro is In Maceo' cavalry and took purt In the battle In the Kubl Hills. Augero says that there were a number of Txas cowboys who have Been service in the Hanger corps on the Kio Grande, with Maeeo's cavalry. They have proved themselves to be very during soldiers, always ready for any service that requires physical en durance and desperate enterprise. Since the defeat of Weyler. Maeeo's soldiers see very little of the Spanish soldiers in Pimir Del Itlo. They do not venture from their strongholds ex cept In large bodies. The Cubans are always on the alert, and when they catch small detached bodies they in variably destroy. A great many of the Spaniards captured have Joined the revolution. They say that Spain's commissariat has been so frightfully mismanaged that half the time they did not get enough to cat. The Spani ards cannot get anything by foraging, because they are afraid to forage. The Cubans, on the other hnnd, nre living well. The people of Pinar Del Rio are thoroughly patriotic and the atrocities of the Spaniards have aroused their resentment to a high pitch. They voluntarily contribute to the support of the Cuoan soldiers. ATTACK ON GUANADACOA. Havana, Dec. 2. A party of rebels made an attack last evening upon the town of Guanadacoa, In the province of Havana, near this city. The fire of the attacking party was returned -y the garrison and the rebels were re pulsed. Before retiring the rebels set fire to a house, which was destroyed. The rebels left one man dead on the Held and the garrison also had one man killed. Nothing Is known here regarding General Weyler's movements and no news has been received from his forces No engagements Have occurred be tween Weyler's troops and the rebels in the Pinar Del Rio province. News received from Les Palaclos is to the effect that General Melqulzo has had an engagement with a force of Insurgents, which resulted In a victory for the Spainards who dispersed the rebels comletely. Seventeen of the insur gents were killed. SWINDLERS IN THE TOILS. Postoffice Department Hunting a (tang or Rogue at Pottsvillc. Pottsvillc, Pa., Dec. 2-Charles Ru blnsky, of the firm of Rublnsky & Freedman, of Shenandoah, was arrest ed this evening by Deputy United States Marshal Meyers, and Hugh J. Gorman, postoffice Inspector attached to the Philadelphia division charged with making illegal use of the United States mails. He, with Harry. Charles and Abe Yarrnwsky, have been charg ed for tlve or six years with defrauding merchants in Philadelphia, Chicago, New York and Boston out of many thousands of dollars' worth of good. Their method was to order goods through the mails, which upon arrival were stored In some out of the way place and were dispersed of at leisure, the shippers never being able to dis cover their whereabouts. They operated under the following firm namps: Conrad Herrj. Catawis ra. Pa.; Bernard Wilson, Lykens, Pn.; Harry Miller, Berwick. Pa.; John If. Schmidt, Bloomsburg, Pa.; CharI"S Sherman, Nanticoke, Pa.; Bernard Warner, Danville, Pa.

New York, Dec. 2. United States Senator Wolcott, of Colorado, and Senator Carter, of Montana, are at tne Waldorf hotel. They are en route to Washington. Senator Wolcott de clined to commit himself on either the tariff or the financial questions when asked for his views on these subjects. Neither would he talk on political con ditions In the west. Senator Carter thought It would be unwise to pass the Dlngley bill. He would prefer to have an extra session of congress pass upon the tariff ques tion. He would not be surprised, how ever, to see a substitute for the Ding ley bill offered for consideration at the coming session, but it Is his opinion that the Dingley bill Is dead. lie thought there Is a disposition on the part of the president-elect to recognize the Pacific coast by an appointment to the cabinet if the right man is pre sented. He declared that suggestions of Mr. Bliss, of New York, and Mr. Payne, of Wisconsin, for cabinet posi tion, met with approval everywhere. DREADED THE INVESTIGATION.

Ely was on the witness stand yester day when court adjourned and was to have gone on again when the case re sumed today.

FIGHT IS AWARDED TO TOM SHARKEY He is Knocked Out By a Foul in the Eighth Round. TOUGH BATTLE WITH FITZSIMM0NS Tbe Australian and His Manager Ob ject to Referee Earp, but Finally Allow II I m to OlhcinteAUcr a fiamy Strngglo Sharkey is Knocked Out by a Foul IIlow and is Awarded the Fight. San Francisco, Dec. 2. Not since Peter Jackson and Jim Corbett danced about each other for nearly live hours before the members of the California Athletic club has such enormous inter est been aroused in a fight between heavyweights as that exhibited tonight at Mechanics' Pavilion between Fltz simmons and iSharkey. Sharkey's personal popularity was in a measure responsible for this, although Fitzslm mons' reputation among the knowing ones had not a little to do with It, The long Australian came over from his training ground early this after noon and rested at ma Baldwin hotel. To a representative of the United As sociated Presses he remarked Just be fore entering the ring: "I am suffering from a severe cold, as you can see, and it has settled In my bones, but this will not Intel fere with my putting the sailor to sie. p in short order. I wei;;h just 171Mr pounds, which Is more llesh than I have ever carried into the ring, but I expect I shall need it all to sttnd off Sharkey's bull-like rushes. I nope he will make a hurricane fight of it. That will just be to my liking." Martin Julian was equally confident. He viewed Fitz's red nose witji some concern, but when his eyes dropped and took In the Cornish man's massive chest and shapely arms his confidence returned and "Hob will win in four rounds" was his verdict. Jack Stenzeler and Hickey, who as sisted Fltz In training were beside Ju lian In Bob's corner both wearing black eyes and sundry sears as evidence that the Kangaroo had not lost any of his hitting powers. Kadi of the trainers was confident that Fitz would make u short fight of it. despite the cold. No man ever entered a ring with more confidence in his ability to win than did Tom Sharkey. "1 have always been a short ender," he raid, "and I have always saved money of my friends. I am strong enough, and heavy enough and clever etioush to whip Fitzsimmons and I In tend doing so Inside of seven round if possible. If I fall it will be becauso he Is the best man." Sharkey was trained to the minute. He weighed 176 pounds, three pounds lighter than w hen he met Corbett, and many thought he was a trlller drawn. THE SLUGGERS APPEAR. Fltzslmmons entered the ring at 10.03 followed by his seconds. Bob's many San Francisco friends shrieked them selves hoarse when tiielr favorite ap peared, but their efforts were nothing compared to the greeting which Shar key received live minutes later as he vaulted into the ring. Fltzslmmons sat quleily In his corner and eyed tho sailor, while Sharkey sur veyed his opponent critically for the first time. The gloves were Inspected and laid In the centre of the ring, but where was the referee. As Earp stepped through the rope Julian eyed him suspiciously, evidently having In mind fouls and hugging bouts. The cause of the delay was explained a second later when the master of cere monies announced that Mr. Julian re fused to accept Mr. Earp. Julian secured an audience and ex plained that he had accepted every reputable man's name which had been suggested, but did not propose to take any chances with a man who was pro fessedly irnoront of the rules. Lynch, Sharkey's manager, announc ed that he had signed the nrtlcles In behalf of Sharkey and that his man had lived up to them. The Fltzslmmons crowd and he could not agree on a man, consequently the selection de volved on the club. Earp had been named by President Groom, he was here ready to olliciate and Sharkey was readv to fight. After a great deal of wrangling Fltz slmmons nrose and shouted: "Gentle men: I have given In to everybody In all my fights and I will give In to this. lt Sharkey take the banduges off his hands. I have none on mine" and Im mediately the crowd stood up and cheered for the Cornish man. Sharkey's bandages were removed and the men shook hands at 10.35. THE FIGHT IS ON. Mr. Earp removed his coat and the fight was apparently on. Round 1 They were both cautious. Fltz slmmuns followed his man, led and closed with Sharky. Tom led and missed. An other had from Tom caunht Kitzsim mons on the shoulder. Sharkey was very active while Fltzslmmons seemed cool and settled down to his lannerous crouch. After clinching. Tom hit him on the neck. Fitzsimmons' leads on the sailor were unproductive. Fltzslmmons put his right on the neck liirhtly and In the clinch Sharkey lifted Fltzslmmons like a baby. The sailor was now doing all the leading, but a sharp hook from Fitzslmmons sent him down. A second later Hob had his left In Tom's Jaw and down went th sailor Just as the (tons; sounded. It waa evident that Fitzsimmons hail lost none of his cunning and already had the sailor in "cueer street." ... Round 2 Fitzsimmons landed a stiff left on the Jaw and a clinch followed. Fitz simmons shutlled after his man, while Sharkey seemed rattled. A hard risht sent Tom reelin. but he rallied and land ed a hot one on the wind. Tom attempted to land a loft, but failed and the men clinched. This was repeated a second latpr after Hob landed a stiff rlajht. Sharkey Kot another hard right a moment later and clinched to snve himself. Fitzsim mons was puffin?, but confld'-nt and fol lowed hi man carefully. Tom got in on the shoulder with the left and a re 1 splotch resulted, and received a hot one In the Jaw whlrh staprered him as the popir sound'--!. The sailor was clearly I'lavlnr la hard luck, as Fitzsimmons seemed to have him Just where ha wanted him nt the call of time. round 3 Sharkey clinched T!nb and cot a left on the neck. Another I ad l.y r ifz slmmor.s was m-t wl'h anotVr cl'm-'i. Fltz pot in a hot left on the f.ice. hi.; it was not In the riifht spot and Shark-y clinched. A little InflKhtlna; followed In which Shnrkev held his own. Just befor the bell sounded Tom made an iiu'y swing which, had It l.mrled. would havi been a palpable fntil. The sailor was pnf flng. but not d'streed. There were shouts of foul, and Sharkey was eau- Round 4 Fitz led and a clinch followed. In the break away Fltz slipped and fell and as he rose Sharkey went at him I'ke s hull, landing two hard blows on the wind. Rob sent a swine blow on the neck and as he recovered Bob followed with another on the breast, taklttr a hot one In the neck In return. A rally followed, and the men clinched, 8harkey hittinir first In the clinch. Bob not his left In on Tom's Jaw and upperciit him on the heart. Tom tried an uppercut and got another block on the head. Hob warmed up and sent In two terrific rights, closing Tom's left eye. Sharkey clawed his man on the arm and seemed to be decidedly weary as the round closed. Father time came to the relief of the sailor and saved him. Round 5 Bob lead and landed a right. Sharkey clinching and throning Fitz heavily. Another left started a stream of gore from Sharkey's damaged eye and angered Sharkey, who rushed wildly and tried for the wind. A hard left sent Tom to the ropes and he clinched again. Tom was very groggy and Fltz hit him hard twice in succession and for the fourth time Sharkey was all but out when the gong tapped. Fltz was little distressed. T"e only signs ot troublo he showed was un abrasion on the left arm. Round 6 Sharkey did not rush a Btlff as before and after feeling his man Fltz landed a left punch and followed It u moment later with a hard left hook. Shar key was leading for the stomach and clinching continually, lifting Fitz from the floor every time. A heart blow from Bob forced Tom to clinch and he hit Hob foul In the break. This angered Fltz, and he went at his man, staggering him with a left, also landing right and left on the chin in rapid succession. Sharkey grabbed the Australian around the knees and was hanging hard when the gung sounded. Sharkey was taking fearful punishment but still had a lighting punch left. Round 7 Sharkey rushed and caught a left on the face. He wrestled Fitz and struck him in the clinch, but still Earp could not see. Sharkey was slow and made a futile lead for the stomach. Bob sent a stiff left into Sharkey's face and the sailor clinched after an upper cut on Fltz before breaking. He repeated this a moment later and wrested Fltz all ov"r the ring. The crowd yelled foul, and Btlll Air. Karp was blind. Fitz landed two hard rights and a left. Sharkey clinched each time, holding Fltz by the knees. The sailor seemed to be strong and fresh at the close of the round, but should have lost on foul at least a dozen times. Round 8 Sharkey led and missed. Again he led and clinched. Bob put his right on the face twice. On the break away Shar key hugged his man. Fltz led again and landed, only to be smothered once more. Sharkey was doing nothing but wresting. Bob got In two hard rights, but could not reach the spot. A hot exchange followed In which Fitz landed right and left, up percutting his man and breaking away easy. As Sharkey rushed attain Fits got in his left hook twice and the sailor's ca reer was checked. Sharkey rolled over on his back and threw up his left lez. Fitz rmi!cii and returned to nts corner, ine ft-ruiiiis m-ip cuumeu oil ui'U Biiumcy was curried to his corner limp as a dish ra. Hh had to be carried from the ring and appeared to be distressed, while Fltz was spry as a lark and did not bear a scratch. The crowd yelled Its approval and shout ed lustily for the Australian. Order could not be restored long enoush for the refer ee's decision to be heard. When order waa restored the referee announced Shar key had been given the decision, he hav. Ing been hit foul by Fitaslm aj mis. It was clearly an unfair decision, as the knock out blow was a fair punch. The crowd became boisterous and cursed Karp loud ami long. The unanimous sentiment was Fitz had been robbed in tint most cold blooded manner. RIOT AT NEW TRENTON. Hungarians and Kalians Driven Away By Other Workers and Then tbe Shooting Began.

Among the other callers today were Commander in Chief Clarkson, of the Grand Army of the Republic and his staff. General Henry W. Klne, of Penn- i sylvanla, and Mrs. A. L. Conger, of Akron. The belief that Mr. Hanna has agreed to accept the position of secretarv of the navy Is strengthened by develop ! ments today and there Is more talk than ever about Nelson A. Dlngley, of j Maine, for secretary of the treasury. Mr. and Mrs. Hanna returned to Cleveland this evening. I Milwaukee, AVis., Dec. 2.

Water Continues to Rise and tbe Des truction to Property Will Be Enor. mous Business Abandoned. Chippewa Pulls, Wis., Dec. 2 The situation grows worse hi-re hourly. The water continues to rise .and the de struction of property Is reaching enor mous proportions. The loss Is already nearly a million dollars, nnd the indi cations are that it will be much greut er before the waters subside. Fifty business structures In this city have been abandoned and the thoroughly alarmed people are maKing every ef fort to leave as little for the Incoming waters to destroy as they possibly can. Two hundred teams and arays have rushed hither and thither all last night and day, and the streets are littered with various kinds of merchandise which spilled over the sides and ends of the overloaded wagons as they were hurried to places of safety. The water remained stationary until about 3 o'clock this morning. Then It began to rise rapidly, and inside of four hours an additional rise of eighteen Inches had been registered. The river at 10 o'clock was twenty-four feet high nnd rising. The Spring street merchants who had stored goods in second Hoots determined to take no chances, and everything was moved. Business is abandoned and the city is In a state of turmoil. At 2.30 the water was twenty-seven feet above low water mark and still rising. A large quan tity of dynamite was brought litre, but there Is little or no hope of break ing the Ice gorge. That the city is doomed Is the peneral belief. The river at Durand has fallen, but the town will be in dunger until the flood sub sides. MR. VAC11ER0VS TRIAL BEGUN. Tbe Assemblyman Accused or Drib cry to I'iic' ii Jury. Albany, Dec. 2.
