Hansen, of this city, and Jaok Munroe, the Butte miner, were treated to a sight, which, it is very probable, will never be seen in this city for a long time. Instead of a wrestling match it was a regular pugilistic encounter, and it seemed as it' Munroe was getting in* trim for his battle with Jim Jeffries instead of giving a wrestliug exhibition. He struck Hanson nuinetous blows in the face, neck and chest, and the match was finally called off in favor of Han sen, by Referee Jones, who had warn ed Munroe that the way he was acting was not right. The police had to in terfere once for the fistic encounters were getting so warm that blood was being spilled freely. It was 9.U0 o’clock when both wrest lers came into the ring, looking in the best of condition. The crowd looked on in amazement, for the miner was a giant compared with Hansen The match was oatch-as-catch-can \ style. Both tried for the neck hold but each was afraid of the other. Munroe would not let Ran sen get near his reach, he kept slapping him in the face all the time so as to keep him off. Suddenly Hansen changed his course and instead of trying for the neck hold, he grabbed the miner by the right leg and they both fell to the mat. Munroe tried to get away, but Hansen wa6 too quick.

Referee Jones said it was only a neck hold. But the wait for the referee’s decision had given Munroe what he wanted and he rolled over, flat on his stomaoh and refused to budge. He remained there and continued to cry that he was not being, treated fair. Suddenly Hansen tried for the neck hold, but Munroe put out his power ful right fist and caught H. P. a blow over the left eye. This was some thing new for Hansen and he asked the referee if it was allowed in the game of wrestling. The referee warn ed the miner not to fight. This Mun roe refused to do and he hit the Dane several hard blows. This got Hansen (angrv, and like a wild bull he went for the miner and caught him under the nose and the miner’s blood flew in all directions. / Munroe tried to give Hansen the | upper out with his fist, but the Dane } was all there and again charged with his head down.

Both men got at it again but they mixed up so much that the bout was stopped. Some of the crowd felt sore at this and ories of "fake” could be heard in part of the hall, but Hansen says he has $25 whicn he will give to anyoue j who can prove that he faked the match. In the preliminaries Jack Dwyer, of North Amboy, and Stephen Decker wrestled for forty minutes, each try ing to throw the other, the style be ing catch-as-catch-can, but the bout was finally called off because of the late hour. John Jones, of South Amboy, was the referee and H. E. Pickersgill held the watch. Before the main bout the Prussian giant Pascal was seen in the crowd. He said he was working for a return match with Hansen and would be ready for him within four or five weeks, if a fair side bet was put up. MUCH WORK FOR MASONS. Large Number of Brick Buildings Being Erected For Factory Purposes Here. WILL LAST ALL WINTER. There is a big rush of work for masons in this oity at present. They have so much to do that it is almost impossible to hire a member of that trade in this city. In noarly every other city in New Jersey tho same state of affairs seems to exist. The regular scale of wages is 45 cents per hour for eight hours work, but several of the local bosses are paying 55 cents. The masons have never experienced such srood times in this city, and they are of the opinion that it will last all winter. The soarcity of masons is due to all of the large brick buildings for fac tories that are being built. One of the boss masons said to a News re porter this morning: “I have been in business in this city for a number of years and I never found masons and bricklayers so scarce.’ ’ The union men declare they have plenty of work for all masons who want it.
