?li. IT. 1W. O. tt vrv o TtLEGRAPHIC. GENERAL NEWS. A Fatal Frlr.0 Fight. San Francisco, August 20. It has just transpired that a prize fight occurred across the bay near Sauce lito, in Marin oounty, yesterday. The contestants were Clias. Oram, an En glishman, and George Warsen, an American, both heavy weights, boat . men of Saucelito. The fight grew out of a disputo as to the pugiiistio merits of Sullivan aud Tug Wilson. The match was made for $250 a side, two weeks ago, and both went into training. The matter was kept very quiet "and only a few spectators were present. The rules wore a modifica tion of the Queensbury and London prize ring. The interval between the rounds were reduced to twenty seconds. The gloves used were a more pretext, being hardly thicker than driving gloves, Emerson weighs about 175 and Oram ten pounds less. The fight.beganat 3 p. m. and lasted about three-quarters of an hour, seven rounds being fought. Oram was overmatched and would have withdrawn after a round or two had he been permitted. He was terribly punished and Emerson was also con siderably used up. When Oram was whipped to a stand still his seconds threw up the spouge. He complain ed of pains in the head and chest, and against tho advice of friends took a stiff glass of brandy. He was taken to his honse near the scene of the fight whore he lived alone, and early in the evening, feeling better, sent away his attendants. This morning Charles Dexter, steward of the Pacific Yacht Club, which has its club house near Oram's cabin, sent a messenger to inquire as to his condi tion, he was found dead and cold in his bed, having evidently been dead at least six hours. Emerson has been arrested and jailed and officers are seeking the other parties to the af fair. Not a person could be found in Saucelito to-day who witnessed the fight, though all admit that they havo heard of it. LATER. San Francisco, August 26.

The coroner's jury found a verdict in aooordance with tho above state ment. No arrests.

The pivot on my left, at the dam, we took yester day, and swung around my right to take the enemy's position in the flank and drive them into the fresh water canal. I also sent cavalry completely around their position, to occupy the railway in their rear and if possible capture their engines and rolling stock. 1 his operation was very well carried out.

At daylight it was found, to tho great disappointment of our men, that the main body of the enemy had with drawn.

One death from the disease occurred at Odessa. lueer Pranks ot Canoeist. The last race was a quarter-of-a-mile paddle, half-mile sail, upset, and come in with all gear. The entries were the indefatigable Heighway in the Nina, Whitlock, of tho Now Yorks, in his big Pearl Rippfe, and Cook, of the Lake Georgo club. Heighway won, with Whitlock se cond, and after finishing the race the contestants performed some ap parently immpossible feats In tho water. Whitlock, running forward on deck, climbed half way up his mast before upsetting. Cook upset his boat and righted her while re maining inside concealed beneath the gunwale, and Heighway capsized his canoe and righted her without allow ing any water to enter her. This latter feat was accomplished by tho aid of a false cockpit of canvas made fast to the coamings of the regular cockpit and provided with handles on the buttom, by which it could be quickly lifted and what water it con tained, thrown out. Ex-Gov. Gosper was next escorted forward, and he made things lively. His tone and action indicated that he was very sore, and he claimed tho in dulgence of the convention until he could explain the position of his can didacy. Not until three months ago, said he, did I consent to renounce my intention of not again entering public life, until after a rest of ono year,and when I did conclude to become a Candida Congress it was at the earnes station of Gov. Tritle and Mr. Churchill. When he returned here it was to find Mr. Churchill es pousing the caust of some ono else. Mr. Gosper stated &at he did not ex pect to receive the nomination, "the thing is all fixed," but a number of representative Republicans of the Territory wanted to go down under his banner, and with them he would "suffer defeat like a little major,with his colors flying." Ho endorsed the platform. Churchill arose amidst cries of "nol" "no!" "Set down!" "We -want no personal fight here !" and like re marks. Gazette. The above described scene consti tuted a part of the proceeding of the lato Republican convention, and is thoroughly illustrative of the exquis ite harmony, existing in the ranks of the Republican party. Gosper ac cused Tritle and Churchill of being political liars, and had tho sense to recognize the fact that "things were fixed. You are exactly right, Mr. Gosper. Things were harmoniously fixed, on a basis of the legislative ap portionment, and you were not counted in. Still, what are you going to do about it? The political caldron is red hot in Cochise County. The Independent is slashing it into Purdy and his whole outfit. Mr. Hamilton, go for thorn. There aro plenty of these birds all over the southern part of the Territory, who would foist themselves on the dear people, aud cry "Good Lord, good Devil," anything for an office. Domocrat. " Purdy" is obliged to Mr. Master son, but as he is not an aspirant for office, the force of the above brilliant piece of wit, is somewhat obscure. We, of Southern Arizona, sometimes accept office, when it is tendered to us, but, unlike the gentleman of the Democrat, who lives in the north, we never accept a seat in a conven tion for- tlnr'pui'poae o7 securing uui own nomination. We, of the south, havo sensibilities, while you, of the north, have only census. We are curious to know what ac tion Hon . M. W. Stewart will take, in the coming campaign. Porter did more than any other man, to defeat Stewart, two years ago, for Congress, and now the former is an aspirant. Party allegiance cut no figure with Porter. He thought ot nothing but vengeance, and worked bitterly to that end. Yet there was no reason why Mr. Stewart should not have re ceived Judge Porter's support. He is a good man, and had never done anything to gain Porter's enmity, except to defoat him for the Repub lican nomination. The New York Herald goes for the Republican party as follows: The past Congress has almost en tirely neglected the necessary public business. The Supreme Court ought to be reconstituted in the interest of the whole country, but this import ant business got no attention; a new bankrupt law was urgently demand ed by business interests, but none was passed. In fact almost every important business before this Congress was neglected, and the net 'results of its operations is that it has spent $294,000,000 of the people's money, refused to reduce the taxes with an immense and increasing sur plus staring it in the face. Judge Porter, the Republican nominee for Congress, desires that the people of Arizona- rebuke the Ad ministration for having removed him from tho Territorial Supreme bench. His election is to constitute tho re buke. As he attempted no defense against charges preferred, it is to be concluded that he had none to mako. Therefore, as he could not fight his own battle, it is hardly to be expected that either Democrats or Republi cans will flv to his rescue. Tin: 30,000 inhabitants of Yavapai county, recently called from spirit land for tho purposes of a census, refuse to bo resurrected for registra tion. Better have tho chairman of the Board of Supervisors and, Churchill, with some other Republi can witch, deliver an incantation to the gods of fraud. Politics is the bane of an editor's existence. Each individual candidate believes that the head of a newspaper must be able to foretell his success or defeat. The fun of tho matter is that, if successful, he generally for gets the newspaper, and, if defeated, he never ceases to curse it. FIVE DOLLARS A YEA Tombstone District is to bo con gratulated on the settlement of the Bon Ton-Addie case, by judgment of the referee. In all mining camps, legal complications constitute the most dreaded affliction. In this in stance, over $100 per day have beon lost to Tombstone, which would have been spent in the development of the Addis mine during the .year .past; Therefore Jud.-j LV' ' !o's decision s beneficial bnth finLLiallyand in 'the direction of a chockT& questionable ' litigation. There is no-doubt of the correctness of the findings, as the ablest lawyers in Tombstone sustain, in pronounced opinions, the solidity of the legaljdeductions of the referee. By his determination, in the prem ises, one of the most promising min ing properties in tho district is de clared unclouded in title. The Addie shows every indication of being a permanent mine, by virtue of situa tion and prospects. It adjoins, on ono end, tho Flora Morrison, which is an acknowledged leading mine, belonging to tho Contention Consoli dated Mining company, and is sur rounded by good properties. A number of men will be put to work at once, by Mr. R. Cohen, the owner ' of tho Addie, thus assuring an in crease of revenue and prosperity ti Tombstone. Judge Dibble's decision is thorough and voluminous, ably covering every point of law and fact embraced in the case. Republican papers are generally apologizing for the nomination of Judge Porter. No need to do so. Porter is as good materia as there is in the party, and deserves some credit in the fact that, he is the only representative Republican in Arizo na, who had the courage to fight the old corrupt federal ring. It is stated that Leslie F. Black burn and Clark Churchill, are con stantly in active correspondence. Blackburn owns the Republican party of Cochise county, and Church ill rules tho whole Republican Terri tory. The Republican candidate for Del egate to Congrcssislike unto a fly struggling in a bowl oi'-ajrujj, por ter's raco for the ultimate edge of political success, is too heavily olog- nron r nig rainrn r tinea TlfllriArtwIs any uneasiness. Some of the representative Demo crats of Maricopa County, showed much courtesy to members of tho Republican Convention. It is a good idea to always treat your enemies better than your friends. It is understood that a half-dozen men have agreed to divide tho county offices, from justice of the peace up. It is usual for the people to have something to say about such things. An honest expression of the will of the majority always satisfies the min ority. No one can consistently growl at losing a fight, if he has been given fair play. The Democratic County Central Committee met Tuesday night. It took docided action in the matter of fraudulent Ward registration. The registration, in Yavapai coun ty, does not keep up to the census, because the County Recorder is a Democrat, and honest. Every safeguard against fraudu lent votes, should be placed about the polls on the day of the primaries. An Independent is a needle in the political hay stack. Thero is only one in the whole of Cochise county. Democrats all over the county, are taking an active interest in the approaching primary election. The Republican candidate for Su perintendent of Public Instruction, will not carry his own county. It is not characteristic of the Amer ican people to stand bull-dozing with equanimity. Clark Churchill is the Blue Beard of Arizona politics. Mr. Oury's friends in Tombstone are anxious to sec him. Gosper's friends are, seemingly, a long way from home. Who can cast a stono at the hon esty of Grant Oury? Voters should register, or they will be disfranchised. A close mouth brecdeth political success. Do not fail to register.
