SL The Knights of Labor bare begun to make tbuir power felt Auvicea from Texas are to the effort that they nave taken virtual possession of the Gulf, Colorado & 8ante Fa railroad throughout its entire length. PasMnger trains are allow to run, but all freight trains are being rua into rouml-houso, and "killed." At Galves ton the trouble has assumed a serious aspect. The company's yards and shops are in possession of the ntrikers. Ooud care is being taken of the company's property, and were are no ceues of drunkenness or violeare. The railway managers have calUd up'u the mayor to extend theui necessary protection mi that they may be enabled to carry ou their business. He is power- i, however, as public symiiaUiy seems to be larzely with the strikers. The municipal authorities along tiie line have been notified that they will be held respons ible for all damages caused by injury to rolling stock and suspension of business. The commanders of the various military organizations have been notified to hold themselves in readiness to move at a mo ment's notice. Shou'd the troop be called out there will be hot work all aloug the line or the Santa Fe. Home surprise is expressed among railway officials over the great strike while negotia tions fur a settlement are iieudiug. 1'roini- neut Knights of Labor iu this city, however. Ultimate that this is just what they desired that it had beeu arrrangod tor, and is being carried out according to design. The unex pected demonstration of their power in Ti-xas, they say, will be likely to convince Mr. Taliuadge that the sooner be compro mises with tne Wabash men the butter it will Iw fnr Mr. Mould. They feel confident that the Wabash troubles will be adjuste.l next week, and that the end of the strike on tne gulf will immediately follow. Threatened Strike in the Iron Mill. I'tTTSBLKu, Fa., Aug. 31. "Monday morn ing every slioet-iron null in the district will be standing idle unless the manufacturers coniu up to the mark in the meanwhile and sign the scale," said a well-known sheet roller on the street Fridny afternoon. "There certainly will be a stnki," he continue;!, "if the scales are not sinod." "Have any sheet scalos been sent into your office f" was asked of President Weiue. 'Ve have received none yet, he replied, "but we expect some ia I think the 'ill ail be signed." "if not, what will happen!" "Wait till Monday morning and you will see;" and the president smiled in a know iug way. If a strike occurs it will throw out a largi number or workmen from the mills, lie sides the sheet-rollers, mauy other workmen are indirectly concerned, and the striK Till lie a larger one than many people hart in idea of. The workmen are confident chat th-- scale will be signed and that the strike will lie averted. They say they are pre pared to strike if this is not dona The manufacturers are very reticent, but it is geuerally believed that there will he no strike, or if there is it will be of short dura tion, from the facj that the larger number of sheet-Iron manufacturers outside have already signed.

The much mooted meeting between John L. Sullis van, the Boston giant, and Dominion Mc Caffrey, of Pittsburg, occurred late Sat urday afternoon at Chester 1 ark race track, a short distance outside the city imits. The attendance was estimated by good judges at 15,01X1. The ring was pitched on a platfarm live feet high in the home stretch in front of the grand stand. The principal event of the day was pre ceded by spirited settos between promi nent pugilists. At 5:20 Sullivan aps peared in the ring, accompanied by his seconds, Tom Deloy and Arthur Cham bers. Ten minutes later McCaffrey drove up in a hack with Billy O'Brien, his man ager, and Alt Iluut and John McCaffrey, m his Seconds. Iiolli men were loudly hecred by the crowd, with whom the ittle man seemed most popular, more for his nerve evidently than for Iheir hope of his success. Sullivan looked big, al though he claimed to weigh only 208 pounds. McCaffrey was in the pink of ondition, and lti.j. Alter a liltle wran ata. William Tale, of Toledo, was chosen referee. The combatauts shook hands and Pete Donohue, of New Vork, called time at 5:45 The men wore gloves weighing about four ounces. They came together promptly and went to work at once. Sullivan tried to force the tights ing, but McCaff rey, by quick dodging and scientific work kept away from the giant's meshes. The little man went down against the ropes in the first round, but more from a push than from a blow. The same tactics were pursued throughout Ihe next three rounds, McCanrey showing great agility in escaping punishment, adopting Ihe Tug Wilson tactics ol falling at the least provocation. He was squarely knocked down iu the third round, and fell in the liflh with Sullivan over him. The fifth and sixth rouuds were quiet as a hurra picnic; neither man seemed diss posed to fight. Why this was so did not appear. 1 he contest closed in the sixth round under the articles of agreement.aud the referee gave the tight to Sullivan on account of afoul. Vhat the foul was nobody could well explain, but it was claimed that McCaffrey kicked Sullivan as the former fell. People are in doubt whether the tight was a genuine contest ir a hipoodrome. The details of the rounds are as follows: Hound 1 McCaffrey made the firsl ead. Sullivan replied, but McCaffrey got ml of Ins way. McCaurvy then got in a iglit body blow. Sullivan responded with a terrific Wow, striking McCaffrey's body, and knocking him against the rope and on his ken s. A strong lick lrom Mc Caffrey caught Sullivan on the back of lbs bead as he dropped . Sullivan then struck McCaffrey, and he fell against the ropes. They then clinched and sepa rated . Iioiind 2 Sullivan caught McCaffrey in the jaw. lie then ducked, and Mc Caffrey struck over him. They then clinched, and then a straight right haud lick on Sullivan's neck from McCaffrey followed. Another in Ihe same place was rapidly repeated by McCaffrey, and a light blow from Sullivan led to a clinch and fierce fitruliug, McCaffrey hitting Sul livan in the face. Sullivan led and missed. Then came another c.Iiuch. Sullivan led again, but again missed, striking lightly on the second turn. McCaffrey led, but missed his man. Sullivan reached for the plucky Pittsburger with a heavy body blow. Just before time was called Mcs Caffrcy struck two blows iu Sullivan's lace. Honors so far were easy. I he crowd cheered enthusiastically each hit. and there were loud cries: 'Go for him, Sully." "liullv for you, Domiuick." Hound it Sullivan opened with a body blow and then chuched. McCaffrey led back without effect, lie then led with his right, but did uot reueh his man . Sill livan then led and ceught McCaffrey, who fell to his knees. Sullivan then led with his left and then with his right, but failed to reach the Pittsburger. Sullivan led again, and again uid not reach McCaurey. A clinch followed and he touched McCafs frey. Sullivan then led with his left, but the blow was nicely stopped by McCaffrey, who countered, but without effect. Sul livan then aimed a terriffc blow at Mc Caffrey's chest, but hit. biiu only lightly They cliuched. McCaffrey then led. but overreached himself. Sullivan ducked aud avoided the blow. This was Sulli vau's opportunity, and he aimed a blow at his o ponent which floored him. It was a straight blow from the right band and took McCaffrey tairly in the face Suilivuii then fought McCanrey to Ihe ropes. Hound 4- Sullivan led and then clinch ed, forcing MeCufliey through the ropes. Another clinch followed, and Sullivan led for his optienenl's body and touched it lightly. McCaffrey led back and struck Sullivan a stiuger on the law. 1 lieu two clinches followed rapidly, McCaffrey fight ing off, clinched to avoid licks. Sullivan reached for McCaffrey with his right, ami Ihey clinched. It was apparent that Sullivan would win. Sullivan hit Mc Caffrey two terrible blows on the jaw and forehead, knocking hun 10 nis Knees. Then Sullivan reached for McCaffrey and a clinch followed. McCaurey hit Sullivan shortly with his left aud a rapid exchange of blows followed, ending in a clinch McCaffrey continued to clinch, so as to avoid blows. Sullivan was now evidently becoming angry, and began forcing the fighting. McCaffrey reached Sullivan with a right aud cross counter, and then again he hit him in the face. Then Sul livan planted a straight right bander in McCaffrey s face. First blood for Sullr van. The fighting continued, aud both elinched. Then Sullivan reached him with his left and McCaffrey weut to bis knees, but reached Sullivan as be went down. McCaffrey was a little groggy The excitement by this time had become indescribacle. At the end of the fifth round a tight in the crowd somewhat di verted the attention of those near enough to see it. Round 5 McCaffrey, though badly punished, came pluckily to the front and reached for his big and angry antagonist with a blow from Ins left list straight in Sullivan's face. Sullivan was showing seme signs of exhaustion, and was blow ing hard. McCaffrey was evidently wait ins for Sullivan to force the fighting. slight blow from Sullivan caught McCaf frey in the back of the head. Both were meeting each other warily and playing for wind. McCaffrey led without effect and Sullivan followed his example, reach ing for his body and failing to touch it. McCaffrey then led back, but struck over. A clinch followed. Sullivan reached McCaffrey lightly on the shoul der. Time was called at 6:35. Hound 6 Sullivan was manifestly forcing the fighting. He led out for Mc Caffrey's head, but McCaffrey ducked and they clinched. McCaffrey now reached for Sullivan with his left, but Sullivan forced him into the corner. Both fell against the ropes, McCaffrey presenting bold rront, but Sullivan still forcing the fighting McCaffrey led back, but failed to reach his man. Sullivan then planted a heavy one on McCaffrey's neck . Straight blows from McCaffrey followed, and landing squarely on Sullivan's fore bead. Another clinch followed. Billy O'Brien, on behalf of McCaffrey, tonight deposited $100 as a forfeit to bind a match with Sullivan for the cham pionship of the world, lie stipulates that the men are to a finish with bare knuckles, for $2,500 a side, the tight to take place within three months afUT sign ing articles, in either Wyoming or any part of the United States where it can take place without molestation. Billv was very enthusiastic over the showing bis protege had made against the cham pion, and said: "VMiy anybody can see McCaffrey is away ihe better man of the two. Liider the Londou nrize rinir rules McCaffrey would make a sucker of Sulli van, lie has no head on him at all and could be easily defeated by such a man as McCaurey, who is a general. Last night the menus of McCaffrey were in lignant at the decision of the referee of Saturday's contest, and claimed that he first declared it a draw and after ward an nounced his decision in fuvorot Sullivan. At the time that William Muldoon an nnunced to the audience the referee's de cision there was so much noise and con fusion that it was impossinle for him to be heard ten feetawav. That gentleman n reference to the match said: "The referee, when asked for his decision, besis tated, ami then said: 'I decide that John Sullivan won the tight.' The referee afterward said lliat McCaffrey had caught Sullivan by the leg twice, and in his opinion this was a foul."

It is a positive fact, and has been so effectually demon strated that no one to-day denies It, that Hood's Sarsaparllla coutains more real nicd cinal value than any article before the people.
