Sax Fraxcisco, Nov. 13.— An appeal rras made yesterday by the Society for Suppression of Vice, to Mayor Bartlett to lave him withdraw the license granted for •he Sullivan-Ryan glove contest to-night »ut the mayor declined to take any further tenon in the matter. Owing to the fashion-; tble entertainment (riven to-night in the Srrand opera house for the benefit or the Charleston earthquake sufferers, the man tgers of the contest arranged that Sullivan md Ryan should not appear until 11 o'clock, io as to give those who attended the Tharlestou benefit entertainment op portunity of reaching the Pavilion ii time to witness the Sullivan-Ryan performance. The men will light with bur-ounce gloves and under revised Jueensberry rules, the agreement being ;hat the winner shall take 75 per cent, and :he loser 35 per cent of the gate money. Pat Sheedy. Sail, van's manager, says to light that the match will not last fifteen ninutes; that Sullivan intends to KNOCK RYAN OUT to suddenly that he wont even give the police a chance to interfere. The great )ulk of the male population is on the tip toe of excitement at the prospect of a clean "knock-out," and although the Charleston Benefit may not suffer, it would perhaps nave been better for it had the double event not occurred on the same night As larly as 7 o'clock the doors of the Pavilion ft ere beseiged by eager crowds, impatiently ■raiting admission. When at last the doors rvere thrown open the rush to obtain good •eats was so meat that many people were >adly crushed, if not seriously injured. (Then- all were inside, the Pavilion con tained 9.000 people. Sheedy was surprised. Be says he nev» r saw such a house before sxcept once in Madison garden. New York.

There were the t'SUAL PRELIMINARY SET-To's jet ween local celebrities, alter which La Blanche, of Boston and Jimmy Carroll, of New York, who came out with Sullivan. put in an appearance. La Blanche had a lame right hand, and d d not use it. The first round was a pretty exhibit. on of sparring. "The second was more serious. La Blanche caught Carroll under the law with his left and sent him spinning to his corner. The third and last round was a "•guy" all the way through. La Blanche let Carroll get in on him with his right, and to the great amusement of the audience went over very neatly in aback lomersault Just as the round was over one of the side doors of the Pavilion was Burst open, and about seventy outsiders rushed in. At 10 o'clock the proceedings were en livened by a tremendous crash in the left gallery.

The patience of the audience be sanic* exhausted. Whistles and groans were continuous, until at last the conclu sion was reached that something had happened to one of the principals. Billy Jordan did his best to keep the people quiet by telling them he had just received word the men would be on hand in a few minutes. This after a while became an old story, and cries of "chestnuts" were hurled at him from all corners of the building. Exactly at four teen minutes past 11 the two stars, SULLIVAN AND RYAN. made their appearance. Ryan was the first to trip lightly up the stairs of the platform. As he stripped off his coat he was loudly cheered. Sullivan quickly followed and was greeted with deafen ing applause. Capt Hiram Cook of this city was chosen referee. Daniel Murphy was timekeeper for Sullivan, and Charles Smith timekeeper for Ryan. Five minutes went by before the men took their corners and another four minutes elapsed before time was called. After shaking hands the two men sparred for five seconds for au opening, when Ryan suddenly let out with his right, catching Sul livan on the right cheek. From this moment both fought savagely, Ryan lead ing throughout. Ryau followed up with another right bander on the cheek and at tempted to follow up with a stomach blow. The hit was short For the first minute the fighting was so severe that Ryan began to show signs of failing wind and Sullivan lock advantage of this and made a rush at Ryan, when both clinched, but were quickly separated.

The blow ! rattled Ryan so thai it was with some \ difficulty that he staggered to his feet. He i shook himself together, and in a dazed way led off with his left for Sullivan's face. The latter stopped it prettily, aud then re- ; peated his right-hander on Ryan's ' jaw. The blow was so violently ; struck and well directed that Ryan ! went down as if shot out of a cannon, it < was a knock of the cleanest kind, i Ryan laid on the floor utterly unable to! move. The police rushed in but it was too late. There was nothing for them to do. The fight was ended.

The Great Uicjcle Kace in Minne apolis Ended — Schock tails to Overtake the Leader. The six-day bicycle race came to a close at the Washington rink, Minneapolis, at 10:30 o'clock last evening, Morgan being an easy winner. When the race opened in the afternoon he had a lead of over two miles on Schock. and before 6 o'clock he had doubled it The latter, seeing that he had no chance of winning, took matters easy and during the evening left the track six times.

Manager Wallace complimented him upon the showing he had made in spite of the accident that betel him. Morgan made a speech, in which he scored Wood side and Prince for not appearing. He slated that he had come to Minneapolis in order to meet them and that they had broken their promise by failing to appear. T. W.

A Determination to I'm a Strong 'Seat- in t_e field in ISS7. Special to the Globe. Eau Claire, Nov. 13.— The members of the Eau Claire Athletic association held a meeting this week to discuss base ball matters in general, and especially the out look for next summer. Several prominent citizens of wealth and nigh standing are in terested in base ball in this city, and they ate enthusiastic in the determination to do all they can to raise Eau Claire to the high est place in the' Northwestern league next year. The meeting referred to was in formal ami entirely private. "Our plans are for the present strictly sub rosa," said a prominent base-ballist, "but next season we will get there, and don't you forget it."" In spite of the privacy of the consultation, however, it is learned that the association sees the necessity of signing some players for next year at a very early date. It has been generally supposed that the three members of last year's nine now in the city — Stockwell. Beeves and — would all be secured for Eau Claire for next year. Stockwell declares that neither be nor For rest will play next summer anywhere, but they will probably be persuaded, as well as Reeves. Xagle has signed with Oshkosh, and it is reported that Burdick and Doran have also agreed to sign with that club. The composition of the Eau Claire nine for next year is as yet rather indefinite, but will doubtless be determined very soon.

He was originally a blacksmith. Being very economical, he managed to save a little, and in a few years he mar rid a widow named Mrs. Fudge. She had about §5, 000. A certain patent bucket ap pearing about tins lime, took the black smith's fancy, and dealing in it he realized largely. Several successful deals in real estate augmented his fortune. In the panic of 1573 both he and his wife made large amounts of money. Their combined for tunes ate by many placed at 5200.000. The life of the couple was as peculiar as the indi viduals themselves. Though living under The same roof, the Whellers were a seperate in the majority of matters as different fam ilies occupying a double house. Mrs. Wheller conducted her own business affairs, and Wheller knew nothing of them beyond what she chose to tell bim at the nightly i chats before the kitchen fire, when they ate their supper and drank their beer. He was equally silent about his own money affairs, and always addressed his wife as "Mrs. Wheller," instead of "Jane." It Jane did anything to gratify Wheller or made any improvements in his clothing she charged him money for it and he paid it. Did Wheller have anything in his possessions that his wife wanted SHE HAD TO PAY __*_ FOR IT, although it might have been a trinket of ■ scarcely any value. Many stories float about the neighborhood concerning the business deals the Whellers had with each other. Although rich, both dressed in the poorest style, and the old man wears a coat that ragpickers would hesitate to bargain for. Friday night about 9 o'clock, accord ing to W heller's story, the old couple were sitting in the office of their resilience as usual, reading a news paper, when the door was thrown open and Patrick Graves came in. Graves struck Wheller with some heavy instru ment, felling the old man to the floor. Wheller says that after this he was muffled and his hands were tied, and then he re members little that occurred after, except that he managed to crawl along the floor to a front room to his bed. He looked around before going into the front room, and saw nis wife at the office door struggling with Graves. The old man finally reached and got into his bed, where lie lay for an un known time, and by repeated efforts finally succeeded in freeing his hands from the cords that bound them. He then gave the alarm. After the old man had left the room it is presumed Mrs. Wheller was at tacked by Graves, and, despite her struggles was thiottled and laid on the floor. After th is the murderer escaped. Such is the story told bj Wheller. Suspicion was directed to him and he was arrested along with Graves, who claims that he can prove an alibi. The house was ransacked, and the claim is put forward that robbery was the motive of the robber, whoever he was. .tlurder and Suicide. Wixfiei.d, Kan., Nov. 13.— A fear ful tragedy occurred in the Bretton house in this city early this morning. Lillian Quinn, a waiter girl at the hotel, shot Frank E. Lockwood. the ball from a S3 caliber revolver entering his head above the left eye. She then shot herself through the head and died instantly. Lockwood is still alive but cannot survive. Lockwood was formerly a conductor on the Southern Kansas railroad, and later the landlord of the Grand Central hotel at Medicine Lodge. While in that business Lillian Quinn was in his employ as a waiter girl. He paid her assiduous attention, and she became infatuated with him. Since then she has been with him often. She has been in the employ of the Bretton house for some time, and has been fearing that Lockwood was going to abandon her. During the morning hours she went to Lockwood's room with the above result.

FRANK AT THE FRONT. j Congressman Lawler Takes a Hand in Discussing the Great Chicago Strike. A Eeport That Powderly Has Declared the Strike Off Eather Coldly Received. The Day at the Stock Yards Marred by Only One Serious Col lision. The Central Labor Union Advises Workinsmen to Pitch Into Politics. Chicago, Nov. 13.— A. A. Carlton, rep resenting the general executive board of the Knights of Labor, beingjinterviewed, would not commit himself. He said, however, that while the strikr was still a local affair only, he was here to look after the good of the entire body, and the terras of its settle ment would need to have more than a merely local significance. He did not think there was any probability of a boycott being ordered, the packers having rescinded their resolution to employ non-union men only. The strikers were thus disarmed so far as a boycott was concerned, and the question at issue was simply that of hours. A call was made on several of the packers down town, and neatly all of them said they were ignorant of any contemplated conference. A further hunt was instituted and at last a gentleman, closely associated with some of the members of the packers' executive committee, was found. He said that a conference would take place in a few hours and would be attended by Mr. Carleton, Mr. Hately and Congressman Frank Law ler, who would act as mediator. Later this important formation was confirmed by no less a person than Mr. Hately himself. He was found alone in his office, and promptly r.c cnowledged that he was awaiting Con g essman Lawler and Mr. Carleton. Mr Lately declared he did not know how Con gressman Lawler came to interest himsel** f in the matter. "All I know about it," he said, "is that I received a message from Mr. Lawler asking me if I would be willing to meet himself and Mr. Carleton at my office this morning. 1 said I most certainly would and I now am waiting for them to come. i What the outcome of the conference will be, I, of course, cannot say." This is the first intimation received that Congressman Lawler has taken any interest in the stock yards trouble. AT THE MEETING Mr. Hately called the attention of Messrs. Lawler and Carleton to a schedule showing the rate of wages paid at Chicago and other points. He claimed that the rate in Chicago, taking into consideration the ten hour day, was 35 per cent, higher than any place else. The conference lasted until high-noon, when Mr. Carleton and Con gressman Lawler were bowed out by Mr. Hately, who was evidently in a very happy state of mind. None of the trio would give any information about the talk except to say that it was of an uno.liial and purely private nature. Mr. Lawler appeared very anxious to have the fact of his presence kept from the public, fearing, as he said, that a knowledge that he was interesting himself in the matter would lead the strik ers to think that the negotiations had as sumed a political complexion, and lengthen the deplorable contest. Mr. Carleton said he had nothing to say beyond the fact that he had a very full and pleasant discussion of the situation with Mr. Hately, who is a member of the executive board of the Packers' association, and was in hopes that an amicable solution of the knotty problem would be reached at an early day. Mr. Hately was in a non-communicative frame of mind. He was willing to say that Mr. Carleton was the MOST CONSERVATIVE AND REASONABLE of the many men he had talked with, but . beyond this he was not willing to go. All was quiet and orderly at the stock yards to- ; day. About 4:30 o'clock this afternoon a \ crowd of nearly 2,000 strikers gathered ! about the dwelling of the Armour em ploye who was attacked yesterday while at ; tempting to move his household goods to ; another neighborhood. The ire of the : strikers against this man is owing to the fact that he is a Knight of Labor, and re fuses to go out with the others. He again had his goods upon wagons this afternoon, when he was SET UPON BY THE MOB. Company E, of the First regiment, ar rived before much damage was done, and charged the mob, which fell back. Company E then divided into detachments, which were stationed at the street corners in the vicinity, a patrol- wagon load of Pinkerton's men being left to protect the goods of the unpopular employe. Another crowd ..was '■ I quickly organized, and had nearly overpow- ; '■ ered the Pinkerton guard, when Company ; C, of the Second, arrived on a double-quick , and. charging through the mob, arrested , six men and put the others to rout No casualties are reported. At a meeting of the strikers to-night a dispatch was read by Mr. Barry from Mr. Powderly, ordering the strike off and the | men to return to work. The sentiment of the meeting was equally divided and further action on the matter was postponed until . Monday. • I It appears that Mr. Barry has had the . order in his possession since Wednesday. He claims to have delayed its PROMULGATION solely for the purpose of satisfying himself of its authenticity. The scene in the meet ing when the order was read, in many re spects was an extraordinary one. Mr. Barry had not finished the an nouncement before the assemblage was in an uproar. Men rose to their feet and shouted they would never go back, that they would starve before they would sur render, and that they would have eight hours or nothing. At a late hour Mr. Barry, looking weary and careworn, made the following statement to reporters: The ball was crowded to-night; filled to ( overflowing". My order to the men to return | to work at ten hours a day and Mr. Pow derly's dispatch to me were both read. They were received with anger by the men, who manifested their displeasure in loud protests and a general cry of "no ten hours," "We won't go back," "eight hours only," "we'll die first." It was the most excited body of men I ever saw. I and others counselled them to obey the order and return to work, and not to take action to night wben they were excited, but to attend the meeting of the assemblies to-morrow and then cecide on the matter. My judgment in ordering them back would have been other wise than that of Mr. Powderly and the gen eral executive board, and I think if the other members of the Doard had been here they would have thought the same. I do not care to give my reasons in detail. The Knights of Labor favor the eight-hour plan. The view of the general board was that so many people worked from eleven to sixteen hours a day that they had better seek to have I the ten-hour plan established first. The j packers refused to submit to arbitration and they made a mistake at . first. The closing of | the strike depends on the men, whether tuey 1 obey or not. lam in hopes that they will obey. THE CENTRAL LABOR UNION. It Issues an Address to Organized Labor 'I hroug the Country. New York, Nov. 13. — The campaign executive committee of the Central Labor union, of this city, has just issued an ad- | dress to "Organized Labor Throughout the | United States." After referring to "the ! great moral victory" achieved in securing 68,000 votes for Henry George, for mayor, and expressing the belief that a successful national movement may be organized, the address says: This campaign has shown us that in spite of all differences and divisions it is possible to unite the political power of labor upon a platform confined to fundamental principles. What, we have done in New York has been accomplished in the face of greater obstacles than exist anywhere else throughout the country. We. see that it is only necessary to | improve our organization here to carry this city, and we believe that general organization must result in the formation of a national party that WILL SWEEP THE COUNTRT. We call upon organized labor throughout the country to form political associations in each locality upon these principles, and having in view political action, local and general, when the time for it shall come. It is proper that organized labor, wherever It exists, should take the initiative in this movement. But it is our opinion, confirmed by our recent ex perience, tbat the most effective organiza tions lor political action are to be formed outside of labor associations, though as far j as possible animated and controlled by their I members. In this way we may avoid any j conflict with the rules and regulations that forbid political action on the part of associa tions primarily designed for industrial pur poses, may bring into our ranks a large class ! now outside of labor associations, but whose sympathies are thoroughly with us, and may secure that organization by election districts which is necessary 10 efficient political work. This is THE COURSE we have resolved to adopt In this city, and we commend a similar course to our brethren 1 throughout the land. 1* is not our desire to in- erf ere in any way with existing labor organ- j izations, or to divert any energy from their extension, but we believe the time has come when, for the accomplishment of its purposes, labor must step into the political arena and, rallying all the forces that are upon its side, make an open light for the assertion of those equal rights which the great charter of Amer ican liberty guarantees to all, but wbich both the great political parties have heretofore ig nored. The difficulty which everywhere con fronts us in our efforts to raise wages and se cure leisure, is the existence of an impover ished mass forced by their necessities to ac cept work on any terras. Until we can lessen the intensity of that struggle for existence which makes so many men aud women ready to do anything to provide the necessities of life, the work of our labor associations must be conducted under tremendous disadvant ages. Men who cannot find employment aro everywhere the force which those who oppose us utilize to resist our just demands. It is, therefore, necessary that WE SHOULD MAKE WAR UPON the great wrong which makes poverty the primary injustice which makes tho laud on which and from which we must all live, the exclusive property of individuals, and denies to the rest of us the right to live and to work unless we pay blackmail for the privilege. We. therefore, ask you to everywhere form political associations based upon the princi ples set forth in our platform, and through he central committee which has beeu ap pointed for that purpose, to put yourselves in communication with other similar associa tions throughout the land. The work which we ask you to undertake is in its preliminary stages, mainly educational. We wish to see .ortned all over the country open associa tions or clubs, which, by means of reunions, lectures, debates, thedissimination of litera ture and the comparison of opinions, shall prepare the way for such a political union as will result in the formation of a national party powerful enough to re-write the laws and carry into execution the popular will."

Sev eral witnesses testified to Mrs. Sebright's worried and excitable condition during the period immediately following her marriage. Concerning the allegation made on the peti tioner's behalf that one of the means by which Mr. Sebright forced her to marry was a threat that if she refused he would declare that during their secret engagement he had obtained a surrender of her virtue, the judge said that no evidence had been adduced to sus tain the charge. Mrs. Sebright's counsel thereupon withdrew the allegation, which Mr. Sebright declared was a "base lie." Lady Scott, the mother of Mrs. Sebright, testified that when she heard of the alleged threat by the resDondent against her daughter's char acter, she had the petitioner examined by a physician, who found that the facts refuted any possible claim that Mr. Sebright might make against the young lady's honor. The case has been adjourned until Tuesday next, when judgment will be rendered. Benedict Arnold's Defense. Rondout, N.

A Determined Contest Between the Louis ville firemen and a Serious Conflagration. Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars Worth of Property Beduced to Ashes, While an Explosion Kills One Man and Injures Several Others. Details of the Burning of the Beau tiful Cathedral at Allegheney yy City, Pa. Louisville, Ky., Nov. 13.— Three alarms at 8 o'clock to-night called out all the fire engines in the city to suppress a fire, which began in the middle of a block of handsome business buildings in the tear of Robinson Bros.' wholesale hardware store, and spread rapidly to the surround ing buildings on the north side of Main street, between Sixth and Seventh streets. The flames originated in a defettve flue, and had such headway that Robinson's store and that of William Cornwall, wholesale notions were completely gutted before the fire was under control. It was thought the Louisville hotel was on fire, and a great crowd gathered in time to see the large cistern at Sixth and Maine explode and tear up the street. This was caused by foul gas. There was much excitement" Two fire engines were demolished by the explosion, and James Connell, engineer of No. 1 company, was killed outright. Charles Obst, captain of No. 9 company, had three ribs and a leg broken, aud Denny Hamilton and Sam Scanlan, firemen, were painfully injured. The fire was under con trol by 9 o'clock, but not before it had spread to the stores of L. L. Warren, boots and shoes, and Grauman & Shuttlewortli, wholesale clothiers. The following is the loss and insurance: Robinson Bros., loss on stock and building &B."*>. 000, insurance $60,000; William Corn well, building and stock SSO.OOO, insured ESS, OOO; L. L. War ren, loss on stock $70,000,. insured $60,000. The other losses will be about $10,000, cov ered by insurance. Fatal Boiler Explosion. Sheffield, Pa., Nov. 13.— boiler in Mapes' mill here exploded with terrible force last evening, instantly killing Miller Manes, owner of the mill, and his twelve year-old soil. Three employes named Rob ert Menross, Link Comstoek and Harry Knowles, were seriously, if not fatally, in jured. The cause of the explosion is not known. A CATHEDRAL DESTROYED. Details of the Destruction of St. Peter's Yesterday by Fire. Pittsburg, Nov. 13.— The Cathedral of St. Peter, the pride of the Roman Catholics of the twin cities, is a mass of smoking ruins. A half hour after midnight Arthur Uuggins, district messenger boy, while passing the corner of Sherman avenue and Ohio street, Allegheney City, saw flames in the interior of the massive structure. The boy gave the alarm and ten minutes later three districts of the fire department were at work. The tire, however, had made great headway before it was dis covered, and while the firemen were fight ing it in the basement, to which it was at first supposed to be confined, and had gotten it under control, the flames were dis covered in the great auditorium, where they had eaten their way through flues and ven tilators, and were creeping in and out among the rafters just beneath the vaulted roof, licking up in their furious greed the beautiful frescoes and magnificent oil paint ings with which the walls were lined, and were bursting through the costly and ex quisite stained-glass windows. Meanwhile a great crowd had gathered and looked on appalled, while the magnificent structure slowly crumbled before the relentless prog ress of the flames, faithful churchmen mourning as it became apparent that their religious refuge was doomed to destruction; Protestant neighbors mourning with them in the loss to the city of so costly and mag nificent a church edifice. The fire pro gressed from the front to the back, the roof being consumed and falling with its ad vance. In interior furnishing the paint aud varnishes supplied fuel, and the ceiling beams aud the pews hissed and beckoned to each other as the progress of the conflagration showed that but little of anything other than the movable articles would be saved. In the rear of the church Bishop Phelan and a number of friends who were early on the ground, were busily engaged in saving the gold and silver ves sels of the altar service. The majority of them, with the chalice and many of the vestments, were gotten out. the worker? being urged on by the crackling of beams, the falling of timbers and the near ap proach of the fire on the floor. Even then, a few efforts were again made to again BEACH THE ALTAR, in an attempt to save some of the many orna ments which had made it one of the most beautiful and costly in this state, but in vain. The fire refused to be governed by the fire men, who now were delivering theii streams of water from every availa ble point, including the rear of Sap son's stable on an adjoining prop erty. Steadily and without apparent diminution of its force, it progressed to ward the rear, and the constant stream of water rose in clonus of steam. One squad of firemen with a stream made their way inside the small apartment in the rear, and from that vantage ground tried to save the altar. Although from the first the fiercest fire had been at the front of the church, the tower, having but little inflammable mater ial in its make up, was almost uninjured. The edifice is of stone, and cost, when ready for its interior furnishings, $125,000. The cost of the finishings and furnishings added to the cost of the building at least $50,000. The frescoing was the finest, as indeed was every particle of the furniture. On the walls were fourteen oil paintings descriptive of the life of the Savor, which were imported for the church. THE ORG AX, which was one of the best in tbe two cities, cost $35,000, and the altar, with it furnishings, about $5,000. The stained glass windows were all memorials. In the altar were a number of valuable relics from Rome, and also the archives of the church, which were saved. When the fire burned itself out nothing but walls were standing, and over $150,000 had gone up in smoke. The strong easterly wind which prevailed at the time carried th. embers and sparks in a cloud to the surrounding buildings, but the dampness of the roof's saved them. The tire was caused by the register becoming overheated • from natural gas, which was only put in the building last Saturday. The loss will not exceed the first estimate of $130,000. The sp : re is uninjured, and the stone wa'ls. which were lined, with brick ana cemented, are intact The building was *> :. d for $40,000 in Eastern compa nies-, bu the list is not now obtainable. The chin.en will be rebuilt at once. A Blaze at .Mew Brighton.
