Thief Riveb Falls Minn., Aug. 9.
— Tne announcement that the Red Lake
reservation would soon be opened for
settlement lias caused large numbers of
people from Wisconsin, Dakota, and the
adjoining Minnesota counties to squat
tipon valuable land on the reservation.
The Indians have become incensed at
the squatters and have been drinking
heavily for several days. Last night
they held a war dance and threatened
Io make a night raid upon the camps
unless the whites left the reservation.
Thief River Falls is seven miles from a
railway station, and its 250 inhabitants
have become so alarmed at the outlook
that they have asked that a company of
troops be sent here to guard the town
and remove the "too previous" settlers.
The reservation cannot be legally en

The Senate Irrigation Committee
Entertained by the Helena Con
Helena, Mont., Aug. 9.— The con

Joined here by Senator Plumb, of Kan

resources of Montana, and who ex
presses himself highly pleased with all
he has seen. On proceeding to the court
house to head a session of the com
mittee, the senators received a formal
invitation from the constitutional
convention to address that body.
The invitation beiiiff accepted,
Senators Stewart. Plumb and Reagan
ppoke. All naturally referred to the
interest attaching to the work before
the convention— the preparation of the
first constitution of what is destined to
be one of tho greatest states in tins
Union. The importance of irrigation
was dwelt upon at some length, and the
many other interests of the West, In

Which topic Senator Stewart spoke fully
and Senators Plumb and Reagan briefly
but warmly, all in advocacy of a
RESTORATION OF THK METAL
to its former position as a money body.
All the speeches were enthusiastically
received, and a vole of thanks was tend
ered to the senators. Maj. Powell,
director of the geological survey, also,
by invitation of the convention,
made a brief address, confining
himself strictly to the irriga
tion problem, but arousing the
applause of the audience by
the interest with which he invested the
subject. The committee then held a
session for the taking of testimony bear
ing on the subject of their mission.
The large number of persons in attend
ance attested the interest taken in it by
the people. A number of prominent
gentlemen were examined and their ev
idence showed that they had for a long
time been givinc thought to the subject
of irrigation. All agreed that the inter
ests of Montana would be benefited al
most beyond computation by a proper
utilization of the water lying in its
lakes artd rushing through its rivers.
To-morrow morning the committee goes
to Butte. When the convention re
sumed business the opponents of Hel

but the friends of Helena carried a mo
tion to adjourn till Monday.

Hudson, Wis., Aug. B.— A mysterious

Mr. Olish lives in the *>dge of the city,

Pittburg, Pa., Aug. 9.— This after
noon while a thirty-inch natural gas
main was being tested the dead cap on
the end of the pipe blew out, scattering
the debris in every direction. Several
hundred workmen employed in the iron
mills near by were just returning home
and a number of tliein had stopped along
the trench to watch the work.
They were struck by the debris and fly

heavy timbers, and these were hurled
into thecrowd with terrific force. Work

A general stampede followed this

HUNS ON THK RAMPAGE.
Ignorant Aliens Destroy Property
in Their Frenzy.
• Scottdale, Pa., Aug. 9.— The Hun
garians at Morewooil refused to go to
work this morning because they did not
understand that the strike was settled.
Hearing that the 'Alice and Bessemer
works were running they formed a
howling mob of about 500 and started
for these plants. The men at the Alice
mines were warned in tune and fled.
Upon reaching the tipple the mob tore
boards off and started coal wagons
down the 6lope to wreck them and
block the entrance so that no coal
could be hoisted. They then went to
Bessemer, and on the way met John M.
Dagton, who was riding in a buggy. He
tried to persuade them to stop and re
turn to work, but the infuriated mob
overturned his buggy and beat and cut
him so badly that his life is despaired
of. The Huns reached Bessemer and
went to the house of an old man named
Gilhooleyto look for the mine boss.
Failing to find him there the old man
was beaten and the windows of his
house broken. A man named Love
was also caught at the pit mouth and
treated in the same manner. They
next made a descent upon the store,
and after breaking the windows and
doors in carried off all the bread and
bologna they could find on the
premises. By this time Secre
tary Watchorh arrived in company
with James Keegan, another of the
leaders. Watchorn addressed them and
finally succeeded in making them un
derstand that the strike was over and
in their favor. The Huns then retired
to their homes. The operators and dis
interested persons say that but for the
opportune arrival of Mr. Watchorn the
mob would not have left a vestige of
the company's property standing, and
much blood would have doubtless been
shed. The whole affair was caused by
a misunderstanding. To-night the scale
as signed is being printed and will be
sent through the region. No further
trouble is likely to occur. The English
speaking miners are all satisfied with
the settlement. The leaders deeply de
plore the unfortunate outbreak and will
use every precaution to prevent a re
currence" of the same.

crossed the threshold of the Blame cot
tage last night, he was handed a tele
graphic statement that new '. and im
portant evidence in -the case of Jack
Spaniard had been forwarded,
and there was a suggestion
by the acting attorney gen
eral that a respite be given. In
view of the new evidence that is now
said to exist, a respite until Aug. 30 was
telegraphed last night. This morning
another telegram reached the president
from the United States judge at Fort
Smith, Ark., suggesting in order to
avoid two executions in the same month,
one to-dify and one on the 30th, that a
respite to the latter date should be
granted to William Walker, who was
also to have been hanged to-day. This
suggestion was also adopted. These
have been the president's only official
acts since he arrived. In Bar

letters are sent on from Washing

addressed to the president here have
been received, making his mail consist
of perhaps a dozen letters. To these his

though almost entirely consisting of
summer residents of the place, but na

Ainoug them were Hon. John R. Thom

minister, and Capt. Wils, of Minnesota.
These visitors came at different hours

Meanwhile the Bar Harbor band

one of a private dinner party, which
included Senator and Mrs. Hale,
Mrs. Chandler, Mrs. H. A. Palmer,

evening the Kebo Valley club, of which
Mr. Blame is a member, will hold a re

Sunday no definite arrangements have
been made, but on Monday morning
after breakfast the president will go to
THE GUEST OF SENATOR HALE.
He will remain there till Tuesday
when he will return to Bar Harbor in
time for lunch, and Tuesday afternoon
he will probably witness the floral
parade. Wednesday morning he will
start for Bath where he is to lunch with
Arthur Sewall, and examine the ship
ping, and Wednesday afternoon he will
go to Manchester, N. H., spending the
night with ex-Gov. Cheney. Thursday
be goes to Concord, where he will be
received by the New Hampshire eover
nor and .: legislature, and Thurs
day afternoon he will besin a
quick return trip to Washington. ;
If the anaigemeuts made agree with
the present intent he will reach Boston
in time to take the train for Fall River
Thursday evening, and he will co on •
by boat and by train to Washington and
the White house, where he is expected
Friday- afternoon. Mrs. Harrison, who
is at Nantucket with her sister, may
join her husband at Fall River, if siw
does not return to Washington before

since the president's arrival here, and
it will be noticed that they include no

To the Last Moment He Pro

Letter to His Daughter and
an Address to the
Peculiarly Affecting Scene
After the Hangman Had
Done His Work.
Special to the Globe.
Helena, Mont., Aug. 9.— George
Duncan Bryson, the murderer of Anna
Lindstrom, paid the penalty for his
crime to-day at Boulder, to the last pro
testing his innocence. Bryson's last
night on earth was filled with hopes of
a commutation of his sentence, the
sheriff at his request remaining up
until after midnight to receive word
from the governor. During the nisrht
Bryson prepared a letter to his daughter,
now with his people in Howick, Canada,
ana also a statement addressed to the
people of Montana. In his letter to his
daughter he says:
"lam writing this letter to you in a far
distant laud, where they judicially murdered
me. your father, for another man's crime.
Your rnotner may teach you to hate my mem
ory, but don't do it, Maud, for just as sure as
there is a Goa in heaven, just so sure am lan
innocent man. The reason I write this letter
to you, Maud, is because I want you to know
me as I am, not as others have painted me.
The reason I left your mother will never be
knowii to any living person in
this world, for 1 took her for
good, better and worse. I don't
thiuk I ever said an unkind word to her in
ty&JO. S v^ft W^orr-^
my life or raised my hand la nnger. Still I
leh her. At the same time cherish a love for
•your mother when old and liever say an un
kind word to her. Have heaven for your
guiding star, God for your spiritual adviser
and never depart from the path of virtue
and righteousness. Standing on the brink of
the grave, as I am at the present time. I
thought it proper to wiite this letter to you,
for I love you with a love bordering on
frenzy. This letter is to be delivered
to you, years after written for you
are scarcely six years of age and don't
know riulH from wrong. Ten years later
when it is delivered \ ou wili have good sense.
Would to God you never could have known
my sad fate, but will have heard it, lam
positive, long before this reaches you. I
Snow you'd feel unhappy if you thought me
guilty. Knowing this, Maud, you'll believe
ma, a"s lam about to be ushered into the
presence of my Maker, I wouldn't lie to you.
Your grandfather will deliver this to yon.
This is my dying request. If you can help
assuage in the future your grandfather's
bnJken heart, do so. Be kind to him; love
him, and on the day when erandfather de
parts this life (may it be far distant) be it
your hand that cools his heated brow aud
noble head. Maud, be a Christian. Meet
in heaven, and all will be well. Don't
get to love things of the world too much. If
you find that you have anything in the
world that keeps you from loving Jesus deny
yourselt that luxury and put it to one side.
Bryson's statement, addressed "to^the
citizens of Montana and the world," re
views the evidence Kiyen at his trial at
great length and continually reiterates
his innocence. He devotes considerable
attention to the press, singling out the
Helena Independent, which he calls a
bigoted partisan newspaper. It was
through the Independent that the body
of Anna Lindstrom was found and the
cime traced home to Bryson. He con
cludes with expressions of his faith that
the guilty man will one day be found.
CALLED FOIt A FINAL INTERVIEW
at 8 a. m., at which,time a message was
received from Gov. White, stating that
there was no hope. Bryson seemed re
signed to his fate. His interview with
his father lasted over an hour, and was
carried on in the French language.
Rev. Wickes and Mrs. Reeves came at
10 o'clock for the final religious ser-
vices. The governor's dispatch was
first read to Bryson, after which Sheriff
flalford read the death warrant. Bry
son greeted all with handshaking, and
spoke pleasantly to every one. He re
sumed his religious worship looking hag
gard and gliost-like. A laree concourse
of people thronged the jail to take a last
look upon the condemned man. Leon
ard Paw, of the Salvation Army, arrived
and held brief prayer services. At 10:20
Bryson changed his clothes for a suit
sent to him from Minneapolis. His fa
ther was still with him, but left promptly
at 10:30, crying bitterly. ;At 10:45 the
march to the gallows commenced, led by
Sheriff Halford. Bryson walked firmly,
"assisted by Jailor Ellis. At the gallows
he read his statement in a loud, clear
voice. At its conclusion he turned to
the officers and said: ■,

neck was broken. The execution passed
off without a hitch of any kind.
Bryson was pronounced dead in
seven minutes after the drop fell.
His body was cut down at 11:03 and
placed in a plain casket. Bryson was
cool throughout the entire affair, even
more so than the officers and spectators.
The body will be buried at Boulder.
The most affecting scene of the day was
■witnessed after the execution. Bry
son's father, during the execution.stood
in front of a hotel. Suddenly a little
express wagon, containing a coffin in
which were his son's remains, rolled out
of the jail yard. When it reached
the spot where the father stood the old
man walked into the street, and with
bared head and tears streaming down
his cheeks, followed the remains of his
dishonored son to the undertaker's,
where for more than an hour he was
left alone with his dead. The entire
community deeply feels for the brave
old man, who struggled so hard to save
his son from the gallows.
BRYSON'S FAST CAREER.
History of His Life and the Crime
That Led to His Execution.
HHelena, Mont., Aug. 9.— The latter part of
July, 1888, George Bryson and Annie Lund
stro'm came to Helena and took rooms with
Mrs. Sarah Bennett. No. 310 Bridge street.
He said they were from Minneapolis. Bry
son introduced the woman as liis wife.
While at Mra, Bennett's they were continually
quarreling, and Mrs. Bryson told Mrs. Ben
nett frequently that she was afraid of her
life. She said Bryson was continually asking
her for niouey : that he gambled it away, and
she would let him havo but a little at n time,
enough to procure his meals. She told Mrs.
Bennett she was so afraid that her husband
would rob and leave her that she had her
rooney (she led Mrs. Bennett to infer it was
in drafts) sewed up In her clothing, in dif
ferent dresses, so that if Bryson did manage
to steal some of it he could not procure it all.
Mrs. Bryson wore a heavy gold chain and
had a handsome gold watch. Mrs. Bennett
describes the woman as apparently forty-five
years of age and quite bald on the crown of
the head, wearing a heavy switch to hide it.
She seemed to be completely infatuated with
Bryson, who was about twenty-eight or
twenty-nine years old. The couple remained
at Airs. Bennett's about two weeks. The 13th
of August, according to Mrs. Trunk, the 4th
of August, according to Mrs. Mixture, Mr.
and Mrs. Bryson engaged a room at Mrs.
Trunk's, No. 516 Eighth avenue, the woman
paying a month's rent in advance. At Mrs
Trunk's roomed Mrs. Mixture and Mrs. Hard
wick. When Bryson and the womau first
went to Mrs. Trunk's, Mrs. Mixture had an
adjoining room and Mrs. Hardwick a room
near by. At this house were repeated the
quarrels which marked their stay at Mrs.
Bennett's. Mrs. Bryson and Mrs. Mixture
became very well acquainted, and Mrs. Mix
ture did some sewing for Mrs. Bryson, matt
lug the dress she wore
WHEN SHE WA9 MURDERED.
Mrs. Bryson frequently told Mrs. Mixture
she was afraid her husband would kill her.
The latter part of the Brysons' stay at 516
Eighth avenue Mrs. Mixture was in a room
down stairs and did not hear the quarrels,
but Mrs. Hardwick did. Aug. 21, Bryson
came home shortly after noon, aud at 2
o'clock he and Mrs. Bryson left the house
togetner. ostensibly ts get their dinner. She
was seen to leave the house dressed in the
same clothing she baa on when her dend
body was lou nd in the prospect hole. .At 4
o'clock Brysou returned alone. He went
immediately to his room, but did not remain
there lone:, coming out and goiug up-town.
He came back at night, and Mrs. Hardwick
says was moving around the room most of
the night, and if he slept at all it was early
in the morning. Shortly alter daylight Bry
£on was heard moving around, taking things
from the wall, and when he went out about
7 o'clock it was found that he had packed
the trunks. He came back shortly with Joe
Ryan, an expressman. Mrs. Hardwiek asked
Bryson where his' wife was, and he told her
. she bad gone to Butte. When Mrs.
Mixture learned that Mrs. Bryson had
left she said it was very strange, as she
came to her shortly before she left
the house the day before and got her to
c-hnnge n $10 bill. She gave her ass bill
and ?5 in silver. Mrs. Bryson handed her
the $5 bill and told her to keep it until she
returned. She put the bill in her purse, and
thought it strange that Mrs. Bryson hud not
called for it Then it was learned from Mrs.
Trunk tha f . Mts. Bryson had paid a month's
room rent and that they had occupied the
room but two weeks and that no demaud
had been made for a rebate.
Three weeks went by. Airs. Mixture was
uneasy in her mind. She suspected a crime,
but didn't have a shadow of proof. Finally
she concluded to inform the police. She
had a picture of Bryaon and one of Airs. Bry
sou also, which she gave to the officers to aid
them in their investigations. While search
was being made for Brvson a woman ap
peared at the postofflce and asked for his
mail. The clerk jokingly told her that if she
was Mrs. Bryson s>he was
SUPPOSED TO BE DEAD.
He informed the uolice of the woman s
visit, and a watch was kept at the postotßce
lor the mysterious stranger. Within a day or
two she appeared again, aud when she left
she was shadowed by Marshal Hard to a
small hotel near the Northern Pacific depot,
kept by a woman named Porter. She was
Mrs. Flora Thompson. The marshal, by fol
lowing her, found the man he wantea and
■ arrested him. Bryson took the arrest coolly
and refused to talk, further than to state,
when he was arrested, that the woman was
in Seattle. He positively refused to tell
where the trunks were. On the preHniinary
examination it was ascertained that when
Bryson left olti Eighth avenue he had the
the trunks taken to the Lenoir house, where
he registered August 23 as J. D. Luudstrom.
He remained there one night. He registered
at the hotel where he was captured under the
name of Barnes, from Seattle. The prellm
iuary examination was held before Judge
Sanders, who held him to the grand jury de
spite the fact that the body of the supposed
murdered womau had not beeh found. The
mystery surrounding the case hsd created so
much excitement that Mayor Fuller offered a
reward of $3 >O for the recovery of the
body, which was found in an old pio-;
peci. hole, Oct. 1, northeast of the
city, by a blacksmith named Dixon.
An inquest was held on the remains, and the
verdict reached that Mrs. Lindstrom came
to her death at the hands of George D .mean
Bryson. The grand jury found a true bill
against Bryson, and he was arraigned for
trial before Judge McConncll, who granted a
change of venue to Jefferson county. Bry
son was corn and reared at Howick Station,
Canada, where his father, David Bryson,
now lives. In 1881 he married Aiiss Emma
Chase, of Howick, and a few days aiterwards
Airs. Bryson received from her mother a con
siderable sum of money, with which Bryson
started a grocery store iD Montreal. He con
tinued in that business for awhile, but was
leading a fast life and broke up. Through
his father's influence he was appointed sta
tion agent for the Grand Trunk railroad at
Howick. He sold out his store, aud on the
night following the sale he entered the store
and carried off everything he thought he
needed for housekeeping. While * station
agent he used the Grand Trunk & American
Express company's moneys for his own pur
poses, then reported to the company that the
station had been burglarized. Suspicion fell
upou Bryson and he left, going to Detroit,
Mich. "His wife left a few days after
ward for Port Colborne, Canuda. On her ar
rival she told her relatives that Bryson had
ski pped and that the railroad detective was
after him. She followed her husband to De
troit and warned him that the
OFFICERS WERE OX HIS TRAII,.
In the meantime Bryson's father sold out
and made good the defalcation of his son,
and as matters were squared Bryson went
to Port Colborne, where he proeurrd a sit
uation as a clerk in R. Smith's grocery store
While there he became intimate with a mar
ried woman named Graham. The liaison
was discovered, and Bryson left the city and
secured a position on a small steamer plying
between Alontreal and Toronto as a news
agent. His stay on the steamer was brief, as
he was discharged for his conduct with fe
male passengers. Obtaining work in a cloth
iug store in Toronto, he robbed his employer,
fleeing to St. Paul in 1883, where he secured
a position with the New York Tea company,
whose funds he apDropriated July 8, 1885.
He was arrested for the crime, tried, con
victed and sent to the penitentiary at
Stillwater for one year and ten months.
He was discharged Jan. IS, 18sS7. He re
turned to St. Paul and served several short
terms in both the St. Paul and Minneapolis
jails. He finally secured a place with the
Union Pacific Tea company, 471 Cedar ave
nue, and embezzled their funds, but made
restitution, the company promising not to
prosecute. During the winter of 1887-8 he
met Mrs. Annie Lindstrom at 1416 Washing
ton avenue, and stole 8200 from her.

murder of Carlson at Anaconda a year

Second Place in the
Chicago, Aue. 9.— The big event of
the Pullman regatta was captured by
the New Yorders this afternoon in spite
of Boston's best efforts. Record-smash
ing in t'iree other races and close h'n
inhes throughout made the day doubly
memorable. Spectators to the number
of 1,800 were present, with a goodly
representation of ladies. The water
was smooth as glass, not a breatn of
wind being noticeable, and the clouds
overhead threatening rain, but rain did
not fall, and the result was a fine day
for rowing. The climax of interest was
in the race between the two famous
eight-eared crews, the Atalantas, of
New York, and the Bradfords, of Bos
ton. Considerable money was up on the
lants. The Bradfords passed before
the grand stand at 5:25 on their way to
the starting place, and were erected
with hearty cheers. But when the At
alantas pulled out ten minutes later, the
applause was deafening. They rowed
past the grand stand pulling a long,
steady and beautiful stroke. They ap
preciated the compliment paid "them
and tipped their brown caps to the
crowd. This little act wa9 also per
formed by the "Wood Sawers," as the
Bradfords were termed. Neither club
wasted time about the grand stand, but
answered the referee's steamer whistle,
and made for the starting point one and
a half miles away. Five minutes after
being in position,
ITITE TWO CREWS "WERE OFF.
The Bradfords took the water first,
aud held a small lead at the half mile.
They also held the lead at the three
quarters. The Atalantas now gained a
point and were in the lead lor a short
distance, but the Bradfords were again
in the lead by a half length. The Brad
fords started out with a thirty-eight
stroke, but lowered to a thirty-four at
the mile, while the Atalantas kept up a
thirty-four all the way through. The
Atalantas' steady stroke, even rowing
and marvelous precision told in the re
sult. They did not spurt at all, but
kept up the long strokes that drove the
shell forward at a rapidity that was ab
solutely dazing. The] Bradfords' row
ing was ragged; some pulled harder and
longer than others, and the recovery
was relatively not easy or graceful.
The Boston boys seemed to labor too
m uch. and their boat rocked about, while
the Atalantas were humming along
as smoothly as could be. The Atalautas
gained the final lead, however, only
when on the last few lengths of the fin
ish. Here the Bradfords tried hard to
forge ahead, while the Atalantas never
changed their powerful, steady stroke.
The Bradfords made a grand struggle,
but their style of rowing defeated them,
and the New York crew crossed the
line just half a length ahead. The yell
that went up from the spectators was
cut short as two of the winning crew
were seen to fall over
FLAT IX A DEAD FAINT.
It was a tough race and the victors
were badly used up, but soon were in
good hands. The Bradfords gave no
outward evidence of the strain. The
time was: Atalantas, 7:41; Bradfords,
7:44. This time breaks the record, the
best previous eight-oar time being made
in 7:46:45 on a running river (Charles)
at Boston. The pair-oar record was also
beaten, 9:18, on the Pullman course,
against 9:24 on dead water at Watkina,
N. Y. The best previous time on double
sculls was 9:18:45, at Saratoga in 1879,
while the record made to-day was 8:45.
One event still hangs in the balance—
the senior doubles. This was one of
the grandest races on record,
two of the competing crews, the
Metropolitans of New York aud the
Bay Sides of Toronto, rowing a dead
heat. The bow oar of tile Bay Sides
rowed himself completely out during
the contest, and when the time came to
row over again, according to the orders
of lleferee Lyman P. Glover, he was
more dead than alive. Pilkington, the
stroke and captain of the Metropolitan
crew, might have claimed the race by
simply rowing over the course, uut he
magnanimously waived the right to the
championship under such conditions,
aud agreed to contest for the emblem
again to-morrow, when the disabled
crew will be in trim. The latter ac
cepted the proposition with every evi
dence of gratitude. The pair oar race
was something of a surprise, everybody
assuming that Standish and Lyon, the
Detroiters, would have a walkaway.
The two strapping
LADS FKOM SALT LAKE CITY,
O3borne and Webber had things about
their own way and passed the flag in

behind. The double sculls was a battle
of aquatic giants. There were the Met
ropolitans, the Farrasuts, the Don Am
ateurs, Catlins and Bay Sides, the Ka
venswoods and Winnipegs. The Metro
politans and Kavenswood were the fa
vorites in the pools. For the first three
quarters of a mile these stayed close to
gether, and then the Jerseymen fell
away. The Farrasruts put on a spurt
and kept level with the New Yorkers
for a quarter of a mile, then they,
too, succumbed. Next the Winnipegs
made a burst of speed that caused
Pilkineton to yell to his stroke to "sock
it in," and the stroke went from 30 to
38 like a flash, while the Canadians
went to the rear. Pilkington tborg it

Special to the Glodr.
Ashland, Wis., Aug. 9.— The chain,
pionship light-weight fight to a finish
between Prof. John 11. Clark, the well
known St. Paul boxer, and Jinnnie
Griffin, the clever St. Paul light-weight,
occurred just before midnight at the
Olympic theater, and the capacity ol
the house, which is 800, was completely
taken up. The tight was six rounds ac
cording to Police Gazette rules, and vir
tually to a finish. Gloves nearly as hard
as nature's own covering were worn
by the contestants. Among the spec
tators were many distinsuished men,
among them Congressman "Van
Schaick. of Milwaukee, ex-Lieut.; Gov.
Fifield, Win Nowell and a prominent
Badger politician, all of whom occupied
seats on the stage. Both men came on
the stage at 11:15 p. m. Edward Joyce
and Billy O'Brien, of St. Paul were at
tending to Clark's wants, while William
Qualey and .limmie Kinunick. the well
known welterweight, went behind Grif

consequent wait over the selection of a
referee, but Ed Welch was finally
chosen to act, and at 11:45 time was
Round One— Clark landed first, securing a
clear body blow. Then Griffin did some
leading and rushed Clark against the ropes,
failing, however, to inflict any punishment.
Clark lauded a good left-hander on (irimn's
neck, and the men were in a clinch when
time was called.
Round Two — Griffin got a couple of swing
ing upper cuts as he came up. Clark, how
ever, was countered, and striking his man
fairly on the jaw with his left, knocked him
squarely down. It looked as if the tight were
finished and Clark the victor. Griffin was
very groggy, and kept clinching to avoid
punishment. Call of time saved him.
Round Three Griffin camo up looking
very weak, but he soon recovered and rushed
Clark into his corner, lie was unable to
punish his man. very much,. lle_gQt in a
sounder on Clark's bread basket, and when
the round wus finished it looked like any
Round Four— Both men fought hard and
furiously and Griffin gave some good blows,
while Clark got back on the St. Paul man's
body. Clark cleverly ducked some rather
vicious swinging blows. He was puffing
hard and was evidently short of wir.d.
.. Round Five— Griffin landed a hard one, but
received some smashers in return. Clark
was bleeding from a cut over the right eye.
Some terrific slugging ensued, Griffin getting
a little the worst of it. Qualey claimed first
blood for Griffin and it was allowed.
Round Six— Griffin made several leads but
did not land. Later one he got in one or
two. and chased Clark around the ring. . He
caught Clark off his guard and hit him a ter
rific blow that sent him to the floor like a
shot. Time was called for the end of the
sixth round and called again for the seventh.,
but Clark failed to respond, aud the referee
gave his decision in favor of Griffin. The
crowd nearly went wild and cheered Griffia
to the echo. ' , -v v
SEA FOX AND TITANIA.
They Win in the Ocean Regatt*
Newport, R. 1.. Aug. 9.— The Goelet
cup race to-day was sailed under favor
able conditions. The wind this morn
ing was fresh from the southwest. Over
150 yachts were in the harbor. The
Electra steamed down through East
channel to her station opposite Brenton
reel lightship, where the sea was very
smooth and the wind constantly fresh
ening. The Block Island course, which
was selected by the committee, was
about thirty-seven miles from an im
aginary line drawn from the Electra to
Brenton reef lightship, to and around a
murk boat northeast from Block Isl
and light distant about two miles
and due east of Block island buoy
about one mile, thence to and arouup
a mark boat about two and a half miles
west southwest from West Island light,'
and finish over a line drawn as for the
start; the mark boats to be left ou the
port hand. The starting gun was fired
at 11 a. m., and in less tian eight min
utes after all the competing yachts had
crossed the line. The Electra waited
for the Gorilla and Marequeta, which
had a race to the first mark boat and
return, the Gorilla winning by twenty
minutes. The Dauntless carried away
her jib stay and returned. The Katrina
led the sloops and the Alert had the
windward position over the schooners,
though the Grayling led the other
schooners, and was aDparently ahead of
the Alert as the- Electra passed Point
Judith. The Titania was gaining on
the Katrina, having perceptibly de
creased the advantage at the start.
About 1:05 the Sea Fox and Graylingr
A VERY INTERESTING BRUSH,
'resulting in the former's favor. Mean
while the wind had slackened, and the
Alert was losing her advantage, and the
Sea Fox led the schooners. The yachts
were making good time, and had gotten
well together by the time the first mark
boat was reached, when the Katrina
was blanketed by the Grayling, falling,
away leeward so far that she had to
make a short tack to round the mark,
and allowing the Titania to pass her
to windward, being badly handled be
sides. Sea Fox set her spinnaker after
rounding, and Titania,' in following
her example, carried away a fly spin
naker boom, losing the advantage just
gained. Katrina set her's all right and
gained rapidly. Capt. Haff, however,
had his boom spliced quickly and event
ually won the race for his boat. The
order of the leading boats around the
second mark was Sea Fox, Constella
tion, Katrina and Grayling. A heavier
sea and wind prevailed from here to the
end of the race. Katrina and Constella
tion were both badly handled coming
around the stake boat, and these mis
takes beat the Katrina. The winners
are the Sea Fox and Titania. The
yachts will leave for the Vineyard at
8:30 a. m. to-morrow.
