G. Broughton, o? Atlanta, and Chief of
Police R. XV. VVestbrook were tho central
figures In a sensational fight which oc?
curred about 6 this afternoon In ?he bar?
ber shop of Levi Dav.'son, on Broad Street.
Tho fight was the outcome of charges
preferred against VVestbrook In a sermon
by Dr. Broughton Sunday afternoon in
the Chautauqua Auditorium. He alleged
that Wcatbrook was a drunkard and that
he could bo found at all hours In the
lowest dives in the city. Ho claimed to
have? affidavits In his possession to prove
his charges, and said ho was ready for
an investigation If one was desired by
Westbrook.
Great Sensation.
Tho sensation of Broughton nml West
brook lias been tho sole talk of the peo?
ple On the streets of Albany to-day, and
a fight was freely predicted should West
brook and Broughton meet. When West
brook, entered Dawson's 'shop Broughton
was In a chair, being shaved. As soon
as WestbrooH saw him he went for him.
Broughton was struck several times by
Westbrook, when friends of Broughton
Interfered nnd hauled Wostbrook off.
Four or five hundred people collected
quickly in frcr.l .:.*' tho shop, and for a
while it appeared tlnvt a general mix-up
?as Imminent..
Tho affair hi-? caused a great sensa?
tion, and It is freely predicted that more
trouble will result from Dr. .Broughton's
charges.

brook, and the senator-elect from this dis?
trict In th?? present Assembly, had a fight
with Mr. R. Vf. Jordan, It being believed
that Jordan is the man who furnished
Broughton with his evidence. Jordan
was knocked down, but suffered no se?
rious damage.

SHANHA1KWAN. June 27.??
No doubt ,is* felt here that the
battle which is to decide this
campaign in Manchuria is now
being fought and below Hai
cheng. From New-Chwang and
Sinmin-Ting practically the same
story comes of desperate fight?
ing all the way from Kaiping to
Haicheng. From these reports it
would appear that Stackelberg's
corps has been cut off below
Tachichiao and Kuropatktn with
the bulk of his army has gone
south from Haicheng to his relief.
Kuroki has cut in behind Kuro
palkin at Haicheng and has also
sent a force estimated at from
25,000 -to ,40,000 men against the
weakened- Russian garrison at.
Liao Yang. The Russians up to
the last advices received here stii?
hold the railroad at all points
above Kaiping, but are being hard
pressed by at least three heavy
Japanese columns; at Kaiping,
Tachichiao and Haicheng so that
three battles really are in progress
with Tachichiao as the centre of
fighting lines. The sound of con?
tinuous artillery firing can be
plainly heard from New Chwang
and reports reaching there say
that the Russians are being stead?
ily driven back, that heavy rein?
forcements are constantly arriving
for the Japanese and that nothing
short of a miracle can prevent the
Japanese from capturing the im?
portant strategic point, the junc?
tion of the branch road which
runs to "New Chwang.
Practically , all the Russian
troops at that place have been
? withdrawn and sent to the fight
! ing line. One late report says
! that the Russians have been
j driven back to Hat Cheng, leaving
the Japanese in control at Tachi?
chiao and that the combined ar?
mies of Kuroki and Oku are press
: ing home an attack on Haicheng.
< Whether Stackelberg's corps suc
j cecded in withdrawing or is be?
tween the two Japanese armies,
this late report does not say.

"The feature, which stands out In the
