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

rvere thrown open the rush to obtain good

"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

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

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. Time.
Second Round — Ryan again forced the
lighting, but with less apparent effect. Al- I
though he reached Sullivan's face and body j
several times he had lost some of his |
power, through becoming winded.
Sullivan, on noticing this, started to
force the fight, and leading reached Ryan,
who countered it effectually. Sullivan i
then again reached for him, and landed a
body blow, which downed Ryan, amid loud j
applause. This was repeated twice. At
the end of this round it was apparent that ;
Ryan's chances for victory were gone,
was a regular slogging match. Sullivan |
being in better wind forced the fight from j
the start, but both men showed signs of ]
heavy punishment Alter the thiid pass, ;
Sullivan got in a terrific right-hander I
on Ryan's jaw, which sent
him spinning to the ropes, making I
a clean knock-down. 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. When lime was called Ryan was
still on the floor, Sullivan then stooped
down, raised him up and carried him to his
corner. The crowd quickly dispersed amid
shouts for Sullivan.

BASE BALL AT EAI CI.AIHt.
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.

snow is twenty inches deep. Trains on all
the roads cent-ring here are two hours late.
Os.VEuo, N. V., Nov. 13. — A blizzard
struck Oswego at 9:30 last night and it is
still blowing and snowing hard. Trains are
delayed and the street railway is blocked
for the first time since its operation. A
fleet of ten light vessels left for Canada
about dark last night, and grave fears are
felt for their safety. Up to this time but
one, the Snow Bird, has been heard from,
and she was ashore at Charlotte.
THE CREW ARE SAFE.
The wind blew forty miles an hour on the
lake and the snow was blinding. It is
feared the damage to shipping has been
Buffalo, X. V.. Nov. 13.— Snow to the
depth of 83_ inches fell here last night.
The highest velocity of the wind was
twenty-six miles per hour. No disasters
are reported at this end of the lake, but the
water is the lowest in several years and a
number of vessels are aground in the har
bor. Railroad traffic was somewhat im
peded this morning by the snowfall.
New York, Xov. 13. — The severe snow
storm which has prevailed thoughout the
state and New England yesterday afternoon
reached here this afternoon. The wind is
blowing half a gale, and the white flakes
are now falling in blinding masses, but only
to melt as soon as they reach the ground.
Ineom ng trains from the north and west '
are somewhat delayed, but as yet not seri

state show no abatement in the storm, and
should it continue through the night, a
serious bockade of traffic will occur.
Contests in Indiana.
Indianapolis, Ind.. Nov. 13. — The ten
days allowed by law for the tiling of notices
of contest after an election expired yester
day, and the privilege has been exercised to
an unusual extent. The legislature elected
on Tuesday. Nov. 3. as shown on the face
of the returns, will stand on joint ballot
seventy-six Democrats and seventy-four Re- .
publicans, giving the Democrats two ma
jority. The Republicans will have control
of the house and the Democrats of the
senate. The coming contest hinges on the
election of a United States senator, and
both parties will make a stubborn tight for
the prize. The Democrats have filed no
tices of contest against four Republican '
members-elect of the house, and against six :
of the. nine senators elected by the Republi
cans. The charges on which these contests
are based include ineligibility on constitu- ;
tional grounds, bribery, corruption, etc.
The Republicans propose to contest the
seats of three Democratic members of the
house and one senator. The legislature
will assemble on Thursday, Jan. 6, and an
exciting time is considered certain.

boarded at Berthei Hess' house. Lieut.
Walsh could take no action, as it was out
of his jurisdiction, but he instructed the [

the city. 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

their supper and drank their beer. He was

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.

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.

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
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**
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
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

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 .
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
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
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
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.
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."
By order of the executive committee,
John McMac_in, Chairman.
The Sebright Scandal.
London, Nov. 13. — The hearing in the Se
bright divorce case was resumed to-day. 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.

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

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.
