There was scarcely room to breathe In the Berried ranks which packed the arena when the combatants stepped Into the 21-foot ring. Uproarous applause greeted tlio darkey , who first appeared , and another wave of Hearty cheering burst over the theatre as Nunc Wallace walked to his comer. Some tlmo elapsed before sllonco sufficient to Hear the referee's voice was ob tained.

Lord Lonsdnlo Interposed for order nnd at the same tlmo nodded to accept a big wager In support of Dlxon. . There was wonderful contrsst between the competitors. The Englishman looked much stronger , with his bulldog visago.conventioii- nlly typical of our best style of bruiser. The colored gentleman , who , save gloves , black pants and narrow breech cloth , was In purls nnturulibus , seemed the beau Ideal of a wary , sinewy athlete. Alf Greenfield and Dick Roberts seconded the Birmingham man , while O'Rotirko and McGotigh did simitar office for George Dlxon. Jack Anglo presided on the ros trum ns referee and Wukefield uotoJ as time keeper. There was a hush as the men shook hands , each as patient as the other , but Wallace was first to begin , and amid subdued ex citement the Englishman led throughout the first round. Ho followed up tills success in the next bout and with slightly less effect In the third , but his work had no effect ou the mahogany nudity who showed no trace of rough treat ment. \ % In the fourth round there was a wonderful change , Dixon simply walking round his an tagonist in every round till the tenth , where in , after u desperate rally , the Englishman suffered dreadfully. There were yells and counter yells , j and' the whole throng arose , for at S tlijs point It looked as if the contest was - / " "About to bo closed. The call of time mercifully - Jr . fully gave breathing space , but that round Y virtually determined tlio match , for from this forward there was little hope for Wallace. A fearful right-hander in the eighteenth round knocked the Birmingham lad silly , and driven Helplessly into a corner , iio was at the mercy of the colored man , who pinnniclcd him till "Nunc , stretching forth his helpless Hand , acknowledged an overwhelming dofoat.

[ Special to Tun BEE. ] The case of Lydia Belle Woods vs George W. Poole was decided by Judge Post last night , the veruict being for the defend ant. This is n case with nn interesting his tory. George W. Poole , a well-to-do bach elor , thirty-two years of age , living on n farm near this city , had for many years been pay ing Ills addresses to Miss Woods. In fact , they had courted since they were in their swaddling clothes. The young woman was not averse to receiving the attentions of the man who was ten years her senior , but her father objected to tlio match , and for this rea son the time when the two should bo united in marriage was not set. On December 20 , IbSU , Miss Ward was in vited to the Poole residence , as she supposed , to witness the marriage of Miss Nellie Poole , but , > vhonsho.loft , tho.premises , she dis covered slio was n wife Instead of a maid. It all happened like this. Miss Poole and her intended husband , Oscar Peterson were called onto the floor , when someone suc- gcstcd there bo u bridesmaid and a bride groom. George took advantage of the oppor tunity and taking Lydia by the hand , led her out before the audience , who-o the Hon. George II. Thomas performed the ceremony , marrying both couples. Congratulations were offered but Lydia was nn obstinate bride and would not have It that way , still clinging to the idea that she was not a wife , nt least that is the storv she has always told. After this she returned to her homo and Instead of living with Poole , who commenced suit to have the marriage sot aside , on the grounds Unit if it was a marriage , it was procured by fraud and de ceit. ceit.Tho The tale that Poole unfolded on the wit ness stand was of a different character. He swore that on the day of the wedding ho told the girl that ho had pro cured the license and had bought many things with which to go to housekeep ing , and just bcforo going into the room where the ceremony was performed Lydia had remarked , "George , I love you well enough to marry you. " They then took their places before the ofllciating olilcer ami the usual questions were propounded , to all of which the girl answered in tlio alllrmative. Tlio decision is no surprise to the people of this vicinity , as in their minds they have al ways considered the marriage n legal one and have been surprised to think that Miss Woods would enter into such un agreement and then deny Its existence.

WASHINGTON BUIIBAU THE OMAHA BEE , ) 513 FOURTEENTH STIIBBT , [ WASHINGTON , D. C. , Juno 27. ) Senator Manderson , who has been punch ing up the treasury officials In reference to the Omaha publlo building silo , received an other letter from the supervising architect today in which that gentleman says that ab solutely nothing can bo done by his office under the law until the court officials in Omaha report that the tltio to the site to bo vested is vested in the United States. Al though more than a month has elapsed slnco the money to pay for the block was sent to Omaha , the department has not yet been ad vised that the title lias been perfected. Un til this is done nothing can bo accom plished in tlio way of clearing the lots of the buildings which are upon them , and the law prohibits the expenditure of a single dollar on the plans , consequently the whole matter is nt a standstill awaiting the action of the United States district attor ney at Omaha.

General Kcnncdyof Ohiowho made n repu tation a few years ago for brilliant partisan republicanism by deadlocking the upper branch of the Buckeye legislature , made ono of the most intensely interesting speeches this afternoon that has yet been delivered on the federal election bill. Ho declared that President Cleveland was elected by virtue of the suppression of votes and challenged the democrats to contradict the statement. Ho said the negroes had been frightened away from the polls and there was , a diabolical in trigue in the cities of New York and Brook lyn and portions of Indiana us well as a general conspiracy in close southern states to secure solid electoral delegations for tbo democratic candidate. His speech was so pronounced as to stnte- ment'of fact that no effort was made on the part of the democratic side to contradic.t him. General Kennedy is ono of tlio most aggressive " sive followers "of Senator Sherman and handles the southern subject very much like his old leader. Some of the speeches which have been made in tlio house on the federal election bill have caused n good deal of com ment hero. For instance , Mr. Hempliill of South Carolina , in his speech yesterday , made this remarkable statement : "We know wo must cither rule the south or leave it. Now for myself , before tlio people of the United States and be fore God , in all reverence , I swear wo will not leave it.

I do not hesi tate to say tlo colored man has as many rights as I have , but ho cannot have his rights and mine , too. And this law is intended to put him again in control of tlio southern states. " Per contra , Mr. Rowoll of Illinois , chair man of the committee on elections. In defend ing the proposed election law said that In some districts of the south armed bodies of men went from poll to poll and destroyed the ballot boxes , in others ballot boxes were stuffed and true ballots were thrown away , in others military companies were organized to fire cannon morning and night to lot the darkles know that "there is going to bo a fair election. " The cabins of the negroes were fired into , and if they were not successful and the negroes turned out the military olll- cers made the polls a target for their target practice. Every effort is being made by Speaker Reed and other leaders of the house to have present on next AVedncsday as many republi can members as possible , so that the federal election bill may receive a majority. Not a single democrat will support the measure , it is stated , and there are vague in structions that a lew republicans in the north and a half dozen or moro in tho. 'south will vote against the measure , so that its fate is doubtful. Speaker Reed , Major McKinley and Mr. Rowcll confidently believe , however , that the bill will receive a majority in the house. It was feared that the democrats would attempt to break a quorum and compel the speaker to count as present those of thorn who would leave their seats In the house just bcforo the vote was culled upon the bill , but the leaders on the democratic side say they have no intention of doing this and that they intend to remain in their seats and vote , bo- Moving that they can defeat the bill.

[ Special Telegram to TUB BBB.I Tlio surprise of the day was the sudden cessation of Lawyer Francis 'AI. Charlton's warou thogroutChlcago gas trust. A little after IS o'clock a son of C. 1C. G. Billings , president of the trust , appeared in Judge Collins' court and filed a paper signed by Chnrlton and the defendants'attoinoys , In which It was stipulated by the complain ant and defendants that the case bo dismissed without costs to either party. The stipulation was entered on record and Charlton's trial dismissed. Tlio was . settle ment carries with It the discharge of Colonel George R. Davis us receiver , though no formal order to that effect has been entered. Parties Interested were reticent about giving the cause of the dismissal of Charlton's suit at least such of them as could be seen. Mil ton J. Beck , Charlton's law partner , said : "I did not know tluiftho suit was going to bo dismissed until yesterday , and when Chavlton told mo of It I strongly urged him not to do it. I told him that everybody would say ho had sold out. Charlton replied that ho had not received a cent and would not receive any 'money ; that ho was not in the case to Uo bought. " "What reason , then , did ho assign for dropping the easel" "Ho said that from what ho could see tlio litigation promised to bo an endless one , with some doubts of his being successful after nil. Ho said ho Had already been asked by his lawyer for money to carry on the suit and that ho did not see his way clear to got out even. I don't believe ho has received money or that he expected to make a cent , except to protect his ten shares of stock. " Other people differ from Mr. Beck. It was always claimed by W. C. Goudy that Charl ton's suit was nothing but a toclc jobbing scheme. The street reporters have it that Charlton has all along been the agent of Sid Kent in the manipulation of a gigantic deal in Chicago Gas and that his suit was in Kent's interest , and that Kent now comes out of tlio transaction with a cool million made by the decline when a receiver was appointed and the rebound now to increased points , TMIK SOUTH IfOttK JtA.V.

[ Special Tele gram to TUB BBH. ] There are prospects of some lively times during the convention of civil engineers now in session nt Cresson Springs over tlio action of the committee ap pointed almost a year ago to investigate in regard to the condition of the South Fork dam bojorc the Jouujtown flood. The com- mlttco fiTvestiglitod the matter thoroughly and scaled its report , but did not baud the latter 'in at the last meeting of the society held in January , . The reason given by the committee was that thuy did not desire to be come involved in the litigation over the Hood pending then. At the present meeting the committee lias given It out generally that no report will bo made unless It Is forced by the society. The sealed report Is said to contain some highly interesting data concerning the condition of the South Fork dam , prior to the fiood. It is stated on good authority thut the report states that the dam was structurally as perfect as it could bo made , evidenced by the ciremiistaaeo that at the time of the fiood a foot of water poured over the dam for two hours , and that when at last the dam broke It did so from the top. It is said that the report will further state that a largo waste weir might have prevented the fiood. Many members of the society are al ready clamoring for the report and many stories nro current. The report will bo in order Saturday , when the business session will bo held. ' SOVTJf AMEHIC.IX PKAVK. A. Ui'azlIinii-1'criivinn-A.rKRiitliia Al- llutiuo Against Chill.

This word was re ceived hero yesterday by mall from the Ar gentina Republic. In confirmation of this news Is an article in the Parvenla Militia , the organ of the Argentine army , which says : "Chill without doubt believes that someone ono desirca to wrest from it the territory it acquired and which has produced good'rcntals slnco it was taken from Pom and Bolivia despite the efforts made , particularly by tlio former nation , on battlefields. By thus acting Chili proves that it is bomowhut unquiet re specting the deeds , which have not yet been qualified by history , and that In hostile and well prepared attltudo It awaits judgment. Happily , however , the interests of tlio whole of South America .aro higher than those of Chill and an effort is being mada to check its advance.

[ Special Telegram to Tin : BEB. ] The slough of despond wnsv reached today by central traffic lines when , they met the Wubosh-Cunadlan Pacific rate of 1)0 ) cents on dressed beef , Chicago to Bos ton. This reduction was accompanied with n reduction to 18 cents on live cattle. The tall has now verily gone with the hide , for both these rates are non-paying , The Id-cent rate on dressed l > oof and 10 cents on cattle marked the line where the traffic could bo made to yield expenses. Should the rates go lower the efforts of nil lines will bo to shove the traffic upon their neighbors. The Wubash-Cunadiun Puolfio line lias como in out of the wet by making contracts with a number of shippers whereby they get their business nt. DO cents whether rates go lower or not. The Grand Trunk has probably made the same kind of contracts. The Wabash-Can- ildlan combination has woaked Its argument for a differential rate by claiming to make bettor time than any of Its competitors and It is well known the Canadian Pacific can make n paying rate further below than is possible in tlio United States. Thu argument for a differential lias always been a poorly equipped or longer route and the central tnilllc fines nro laying In ammuni tion wherewith to light thu Wabash in futuro- on account of Its assuming the right to make n differential rate while , at the same tlmo claiming to bo n part of the best route to > Ne\v England.

The plan has been so amended ns to include nn advance to the . old basis of every western freight rate excolit the east bound rates on grain from Kansas and Nebraska and the proportion of the through rate from Chicago to St. Paul on business from the seaboard. The only hitch in the proceeding comes in right here. It Is impossible to raise this proportional r.ito on account of' lake and Canadian Pacific competition mid. the divergence will bo presented of a 00 cent , rate , Chicago to St. Paul , and a 71 cent all rail rate from New York to St. Paul.

Should thero- bo an objection , However , It will bo argued that it is compelled by late and foreign com petition. Should the advance to 00 cents to- . St. Paul bo made there will bo opposition to. a 75 cent rate to the river. The effect of the low rate mid Canadian. rates is foil as far soutli as Sioux City , however - over , and a compromise of a li.r > or 70 cent local rate to that point is being canvassed. If this , compromise is not affected it will bo because the linen to St. Paul with branches west of tlio Misslppi , agree to ignore the long mid * short haul clause in cuso local rates to St. .
