More Specific Results Demanded of
the Court.
The Washington correspondent of the
Tribune transmits the following:
UNSATISFIED RESULTS.
The Jeannette investigation will not
down. The ghosts of the starved and
frozen men who gave their lives at the
far north still stalk, and seem likely to do
so when the next Congress meets. The
friends of Collins, dissatisfied with the
privileges accorded them in the investiga
tion, and the widows of the dead men,
who have not been in any way provided
for in their loneliness and want, will call
upon the powers that sent their loved ones
to that inhospitable region to perish, to
grant them some recognition.
"What will this demand be?" your cor
respondent asked of a party here who is
preparing to take charge of the matter
before Congress.
"The plans are not definitelytlaid," was
the reply, "and of curse could not be all
given to the public it they were. Collins'
friends, however, are not at all satisfied
with the way they were treated in the in
vestigation, and they are determined to
ask a thorough overhauling of the matter.
Then the widows of the men who lost their
lives there have had no recognition. They
ought to be cared for by the government.
I believe everybody admits that. Then
there are many points of peculiar bearing
that were not allowed to come out on the
other examination. I know that to be a
fact, for I sttended it daily and heard every
scrap of the testimony. For instance, the
fact that one strong, able and willing man
was forced to walk behind the ship's com
pany all the way down under arrest and
not permitted to take any part in the work,
when he might have been of material aid.
Then there was a mysterious delay at Her
ald Island not satisfactorily accounted for.
Of course the navy people were willing to
protect their officers as far as was reason
able, and the result was that a good many
points were passed over lightly which
ought to have been brought out clearly,
and might have made a great change in the
general result."

Dufur In tbe Match with Boss Wins
Two In Three Falls and the
$1,000 Prize.
ROcHEsratR, April 2i.--A wrestling
match for $1,000 atnd the Police Gazette
medal, between Duncan C. Ross and H.
M. Dufur, champion collar-and elbow
wrestler of the world, took place here this
evening, and resulted it a victory for Du
fur. The Grand Opera House was crowd
ed. The betting was in favor of Ross.
Charles Perkins of ,this city was umpire
for Dufur. and N. P. Wilbur, also of this
city, for Ross. the referee was W. E.
Harding.
The first bout was collar and elbow, and
was won by Dufur ic four minutes after
one foul fall. The second botn. was catch
as catch can, and lasted fourteen minutes,
resulting in favor of Ross. The third bout
was to decide the contest, and when time
was called there was much excitement.
The bout lasted five and a half minutes,
and was won by Dufur. who threw his
antagonist hbard. Richard K. Fox came on
the stage and presented the money to the
referee, who handed it over to Daufur.
Both men wrestled well. Dufur won ap
plause for his quick movements. Ross
hung back and tried to tire out his an
tagonist.
Capt. James C. Daily telegraphed a
challenge from New York to wrestle the
winner, and Dufur accepted it.
BOSf ONSi (IIAIPIPO 1N PPUGILIST.
He Denies that he hat IIeamorrhage
of the Luage. and says that he is
All Right.
BosToN, April 26.-I called on John L.
Sullivan at his lodgings this evening. His
powerful form was stretched at full length
in bed, and there was nothing about his
appearance that would indicate any ma
terial loss of his muscular powers. His
face showed no signs of suffering, and he
seemed to be thoroughly enjoying a little
rest and quiet. His bed was covered with
sporting and other papers with which he
was engaged when I entered the room.
"I am all right," he replied in answer
to a question as to how he felt. "There's
nothing the matter with me. I shall be
out to-morrow. That's all a mistake about
the hemorrhage of the lungs. It was only
from my stomach. I haven't been doing
justas I ought-have been drinking too
freely. Every man errs, and I haven't
been taking care of myself."
"What does the doctor say ?"
"Doctor! Why, I haven't called a doe
tor since Monday. Dr. Thayer was in yes
terday, and pronounced me all right, I
should have gone out to-day, but I am a
little feverish from lying in bed, and want
to be caseful."
Further questioning could not make
Sullivan acknowledge that he was fright
ened when the hemorrhage first came on,
but the fact that a priest was called proves
either that he or the lady of the house,
who, by rue way, Sullivan introduced as
his wife, thought that his time had come.
Among Sullivan's most bitter enemies
(and they are not ta few, although they
dare to say little) it ,is whispered that a
slight touch of thejimjams wa- the only
trouble with the champion, and that he
had the story ot the hemorrhlage eirculat
ed toserve a purpose.
