Ti/est BOXERS MAKE A FARCE OF THEIR BOUTS Russell Wins on a Foul, While the Police Stop the Turner-Reilly Bout. The thirty-live rounds of boxing outlined ca the gramme of the National Ath letic Club for last night dwindled down to six, and of these there was only one round of clean give ■id take hitting. Both Tur ner and Reilly gave a brilliant exhibition in the first round of their bout, In the second round li Illy went down twice and the police stopped what at the moment seemed a one-sided match. It was said afterward that Reilly went down to draw his opponent's fire, thinking he would rush In blindly to finish him. Tho event of the evening was a roaring farce from first to last, and as such was hugely enjoyed by the spectators. It came to a sudden stop in the fourth round, when Referee Jordan gave the de cision to Russell on a foul. The foul con sisted in Van Buskirk biting Russell's ear until the blood llowed freely. It was an nounced that the nun would box straight asbery rules, but the bout developed into a rough ana tumble, eaten as catch can affair almost at the nrst Bound of the £OI)£. Contrary to the reports sent out from Van Buskirk's training quarters he was palpaDly not in condition for a fight. Fat nurig in rouis about ins belt while he was t-tiuggnng lor breath after the nrst scrim mage, rtusseii carried do superfluous tiesh, but be was an exploded "phenom" alter tne first exchange of blows. He had no guard apparently, simply standing and waiting for a blow to land and then clinching. Alter each clinch he showed he was pos sessed oi great strength by rushing \'an Busk to the ropes, where he neid him in a deathlike grip. Two. \\.isiier\>omen with wet towels could do more execution than the big fel lows while they were boxing. Russell Clinched peatedjy and Van buskirk pep pered him at snort range, but without seeming damage. They were roughing it so much in the first round that Captain of Police Gilien warned them to desist. The spectators made preparations to leave after the first round, as that showed them the caliber of the men as boxers. In the second round each landed some blows, but none were effective. Toward the end of the round Russell followed Van Buskirk around the ring, hitting him at will, but not hard Van Buskirk tried some wild swings in the third round, all of which went wide of the mark. The only effect was to leave him putting like a wheezy bellows at the end of the round. In the fourth round the men hugged one another like dancing bears, while Referee Jordan grew purple in the face trying to drag them apart. The round was hardly halt over when Jordan stopped the men and awarded the bout to Russell. Tha foul consisted of biting his ear. The bout between Turner and Reilly was merry milling while it lasted, which was less than two rounds. When the men came together In the second round they assumed he crouching position so mucn favored by "Kid" McCoy. Both feinted fur a few moments, when Reilly caught Turner heavily with a left swing on the he-ad. This aroused Turner to action and he promptly eked Reilly down. The latter took a reasonable time before facing the music again. When he did so Turner promptly knock him down again. At this juncture Captain of Police Gilien 3tepped into the ring i (stopped the bout. Reilly jumped to his feet and walked to his corner with a crestfallen manner. The spectators called for a draw. Referee Jordan said that as Tur ner had the best of it up to the time the bout was stopped by the police he would give him Ihe decision. Reilly forced the going In the first round and made a good showing against Tur ner, who is a marvclously clever boxer and stiff puncher. In one exchange it was give and take, with a chance of either man going out at any moment. Near the end of the round Turner knocked Reilly down and huer caught him twice with left hocks. Reilly returned the compliment in kind, drawing blood from Turner's mouth. When the out was stopped Reilly looked in much worse condition than he really was. but with the Franey fatality fresh in mind Captain Gil len took no chances of a recurrence of I bat affair. The betting was 10 to 5 on each fight throughout the day. Turner and Van Bus kirk being the favorites. The Paris mu tti.ils at Harry Coibett's paid $* 25 for each dollar played on Russell and $7 "> for Turner. Russell was seconded by Munroe. Martin Murphy and "Jimmy" Lawlor, while in Van Buskirk's corner were Frank Bur ton, Al Neill and ".lack" Morris. AMERICAN JOCKEYS WIN. "Skeets M Martin Lands Two Mounts and Lester Beiff One.

The boxing bouts at the National Athletic Club last night did not consume much time. Referee Jordan stopped Heavyweights Van Buskirk and Russell in the fourth round of their bout. He awarded the decision to Russell, as Van Buskirk was biting his ear. The police stopped the Turner-Reilly bout in the second round* a contract by the terms of which they are to furnish Sunday baseball, to be played in Maryland, five and a half miles out of this city, during the championship season of 1900. The other parties to the contract are owners and operators of a street railway. PLAYS EXCELLENT GOLF. Mrs. Fox Defeats Miss Sands on the Philadelphia Links. PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 12. -As good an article of golf as any one would care to see was played to-day in the second round for the woman's championship of the Uni ted States. The stars of the day were Mrs. Caleb F. Fox of the Huntingdon Valley Cricket Club, Rydale, Pa., and Miss Anna Sands of the Newport Golf Club, Newport, R. I. Although Miss Bands was defeated by Mrs. Fox, the Newport player was by no means dis graced and was heartily applauded for her uphill work. The golf of Mrs. Fox has been the sensation of the tournament, although in the preliminary round her name was little mentioned for champion ship honors. Mrs. Fox's opponent to-morrow for the semi-final round will be Miss Marion Oliver of Albany, N. Y. Miss Oliver is another player who has surprised the talent. The other winners to-day were Miss Ruth Underhill of Glencove, L. 1., and Miss Elsie Cassatt of this city. REMEDIAL MEASURES FOR THE ARMENIANS Ottoman Government Making Rep aration in Part for Past Oppression. CONSTANTINOPLE. Oct. 12.— impe rial irade has been issued abolishing all measures that prevented the free move ments of Armenians. It also orders the rebuilding and repairing, with Govern ment assistance, of churches, schools and monasteries destroyed during the troubles and the payment of sums due officials or the families of officials who were expelled or killed in the massacres. In addition to these remedial measures the irade pardons fifty-four prisoners and commutes to imprisonment, for life the sentences of twenty-four j persons con demned to death. As this action on the part of the Otto man Government is accepted by the pa triarchs as satisfactory, these dignitaries will withdraw their resignations. m SMALLPOX AT ASTORIA. ASTORIA, Or.. Oct. 12.— A cose of con fluent smallpox has been discovered in this city and the usual excitement over the appearance of the disease prevails. It was thought yesterday by physicians that the case was one of varioloid, but an other examination to-day showed it to be smallpox in Its worst form. The patient is Beecher Slooo. a milk man.

LEXINGTON, Ky., Oct., 12.— The trot ting races were postponed to-day on ac count of rain. There will be a double programme to-morrow. TWO CHOICES BOWLED OVER AT OAKLAND Horton Had a Narrow Escape. Novia and .Wyoming Earned Brackets. The light downpour of rain left a vel vety surface to the track at Oakland and yesterday the members of the "patched up" brigade ran like two-year-olds. Of the five favorites sent to the post three, Wyoming, Tenrlca and Horton were re turned winners. It seemed as if Galen Brown's Wyoming could be half good and beat the bunch he was pitted against in the first event, a six-furlong selling run. The ring laid as good as 6 to 5 about him, and he came home alone, three open lengths before Don Luis, an 8 to 1 sled, well supported. Rosalbra made a bid for the purse, but stopped noticeably the last part. Novia, the speedy Islington mare, carry ing the Spreckels colors, pocketed the sec ond purse. She was third choice in the betting to Yule and Sorrow, and with Jack Ward in the saddle was never head ed. Alicia, contender from the jump, was beaten but a neck and could have scored had the distance been further. Mounce, on the favorite Yule, rode in wretched form, running unplaced. A selling handicap, over one mile and a sixteenth, turned out "oil from the can' for Tenrica. Tommy Walsh, the protege of "Butch" Fisher, sat on her back, and reserving his rush for the last furlong won galloping. Postel with the leg up on Anchored found the longest way around the track, and at the wire was downed a neck for the place by Stromo. Mon rovia, the second choice, undoubtedly pre fers the sprinting distance. For the fourth event, a scramble over the Futurity course, Horton was served up a steaming hot 2 to 7 choice. Frawley nearly gave the chestnut colt's backers heart disease, as at the paddock Horton looked beaten. His gameness pulled him through, for he forged ahead from there, leading I Don't Know over the line a scant length. Whitcomb ran third. Beyond peradventure of a doubt, if Frawlev were to get lost on the burning sands of Death Valley he would stumble across a hitherto unknown well and fall in. In a race he can find pockets that would shame a classic member of the light-fingered fraternity. In the conclud ing chapter he had the mount on Polish, the favorite, and the books were to have received a jarring. As the field broke Frawlev managed to get his mount's head through the webbing, taking all but the posts and Ferguson with him. He lost several lengths, but hugged the rail and lost the decision by less than a length to Ringmaster. The latter horse, however, won cleverly. Tiburon, which made all the running, finished a close third. To-Day's Entries.
