ila'» Capital.
Harkisbirg, March 30.—The much
talked of prize fight, lietween Joe McAu
liffe, of San Francisco, nnd Jim Daly, of
Philadelphia, took place in the vicinity of
this city last night, nearly 300 spectators
witnessing the mill. The terms of the
fight were that- Jim Daly should stay six
rounds, for a purse of $1,000. This he man
aged to do, and although receiving a lot of
punishment was almost as fresli as his
burly opponent, at the finish. It is only
fair to McAnliffe, however, to state that
he broke the first knuckle of his left hand
in the fourth round, and was incapacitated
from hitting the Quaker City man as hard
as he might otherwise have done.
Daly Greatly Oil t weigh teil.
It was exactly 10:07 when McAuliffe
stepped into the ring, followed three min

that Daly would have to fight hard to win,

Round 2—The Quaker City hoy cleverly

McAuliffe a hard one in the wind. The

Tho Legislature Will Investigate the Sol*
dlers* Orphan School».
Habrisbuho, March 30.—Mr. Parker, of
Delaware county, introduced a resolution
in the house, which was unanimously
adopted, authorizing the appointment of a
committee to consist of three member» of
the house of representative» and two sen
ators to investigate the amount expended
by each of the soldiers' orphan schools each
year from 1875 to 1889.
This is a result of the charges published
in the Philadelphia Record to the effect
that recent revelations at Mercer, Pa., dis
close the fact that the state had been
robbed of over $1,000,000 in the manage
ment of the soldiers' orphan schools. The
committee is directed to report the result
of their investigations at as early a date as
practicable. The senate subsequently con
curred in the resolution.

He Had an Accomplice, Who Him Disap
Nkw York, March 30.— District Attor
ney Fitzgerald, of Richmond county, said
last uight that the mystery of the murder
of Carl E. Ruttinger, whose body was
found in the water off Tottenville, traten
Island, on Wednesday of last week, was in
a fair way of being solved, and that one of
the murderers would probably be captured.
He came to this conclusion yesterday from
evidence that was given to the Staten Isi
and authorities by a young Englishman
who was a fellow passenger of Wright and
Ruttinger on the steamship City of Chi
cago, which arrived on Jan. 10.
This young Englishman »uid he had
lived near Wright in England and knew
him well. Wright, he said, was a man of
bod moral character. On the voyage over
the young Englishman saw a good ileal of
Wright, aud Ruttinger. Ruttinger had a
big roll of money, but Wright apparently
had none. Ruttinger paid for everything.
Wright and the young Englishman often
t alked t ogether.
"Once Wright told the young English
man t hat Rut tinger had 115,000 in cash in
his possession uud that he was a laee man
ufacturer. The tariff bill hod ruined bis
business and he had sold out for the $15,
000 and was corning to America to start a
new laee factory. Ruttinger acted very
roughly toward Wright, and ordered him
around. Once on the voyage over he had
heard himcall Wriglitavilename. Wright
had said to him that If he had any one to
help him he would throw Ruttinger over
It is believed that Wright plotted with
one of his bad companions to kill Ituttin
ger and rob him of the $15,000 he had re
alized from the sale of his business. The
confederate came to America on the steam
er ahead of Ruttinger. Wright then in
duced Ruttinger to go wit h him to Totten
ville, possibly to look at a site on which u
laee factory might tie built. After getting
him down there he drugged him or the
confederate sandbagged him and robbed
him, and then Wright returned to New
York and killed himself.
When tile young Englishman was asked
by the authorit ies how it was that such an
apparently weak man us Wright could
not only arrange such a plot but assist in
carrying It. out, he replied that Wright
was not such a weak young man as he
looked. He had on one occasion whipped
a London "bobby," who was a good deal
bigger than himself and who was armed
wit h a club besides. When he was arrest
ed, though, his nerve gave out. He paced
up and down iu Ids cell and cried and
screamed like a ernzy man.
It was argued from this Mint he might
have the courage to plot the murder of
Ruttiuger, but, that after the deed was
done it was very natural that he should
come back to New York, anil in a moment
of fear or remorse commit suicide.
The young Englishmen gave a picture of
their confederate to the authorities and
told them that the man was still iu Mus
couutry, that lie was a robber by occupa
tion, aud that he had a police record in
London as a thoroughly I cut man. Dist rict
Attorney Fitzgerald balievea the young
Englishman's statement.

by the agents of the press in this country as
well as in England. Their mission was to
ask those who believed in an independent
Irish party in parliament to come to their
uid, so that they could light every seat in
Ireland and restore unity by wiping from
public life tbe men who had betrayed the
trust reposed in them. Mr. Kedinond and
Mr. O'Connor also spoke. At tbe close of
