A Wisconsin Man Commits Suicide
on Acoovnt of a Crime.
NEW YORK, April 8.—A World
special from Tekonsha. Wis., says:
William Watson and his wife were
divorced in 1886 and soon afterward the
ex-wife married Randoyne Shedd. Wat
son went to Kansas, but afterwtrd re
turned and was here when Shedd and his
wife were found dead. Mrs. Shedd's
throat had been cut with a butcher knife
and her head split with an axe. Mr.

BOUIH the Battle
Raged With Unexampled
Keferee Finally Declared There Had
Been No ontest and the Crowd
Heat Hose.
ORLEANS. April 8.—The Bowen-
Burfce fight at the Olympic club was the
tamest affair ever seen in the ring here.
Tt ww stopped in the 110th round by
the referee, who declared it no contest.
The pnrse will probsblr be divided.
Bo wen wanted to tinian. Bones in
both of Burke's hands were
broken early in the fight, bnt
in breaking them he seemed to
do little harm to his opponent. Up to
the 80th rtfund the sport was what
aporting men would call good. After
that there was no fighting of conse
quence, and from the 49th to the
93d round the men simply walked around
the ring and made few attempts at
fighting. The audience kept up a con
stant tumult of whistling and
catcalls. At the beginning of
the 93d round Bowen showed a
little life and occasionally landed his
right on Burke's body. His blows,
however, lacked force, and at no time
did Burke fear a knockout, ^e Texas
lad's hands were in bad shape and prao*
tically useless for hitting. He only
kept his arms moving in order to keep
Bowen on the alert. In the 94th round
Referee Duffy was obliged to leave the
ring on account of fatigue and Presi
dent Dickson assumed charge for one
round. Duffy returned at the beginning
of the 95th round, and again the
"walk-around" began. The succeeding 10
rounds were tame affairs and both men
showed the effects of the long drawn
out contest. In the 105th round Bowen
fell to the floor from the force of his
own blow, which met no greater resist
ance than the heavy air of the club
house. The men simply jabbed at each
other until the end of the 110th round,
when the audience demanded that the
referee declare it a draw. After a few
minutes consultation with President
Dickson Referee Duffy declared it "no
manner. During the night he cut his
tbipat and died.

populous suburb of this city, had a nar
row escape from wholesale gas asphyxi
ation. At midnight the gas suddenly
ceased to flow a ad in another moment

rooms where gas jets had been left
burning. Several citizens detected the
escaping gas after almost simultan
eously and started out to warn tbe
neighbors of their impending danger.
Many persons had left all night lights
and the calls of the relief party were
none too soon. Mrs. Agnes Ross, an
Invalid who lived at 2510 Commercial

finally resuscitated. As far as can be

respectful but pointed protest or re
monstrance on the subject will be pre
sented to the prince.

Xhe London ancet'* Representative
Sees the Noted River.
LONDON, April 8.—The Lancet's rep
resentative has jus returned from Chi
cago, where he went to inquire into the
city's sanitary condition. He examined
several samples of the water from the
Chicago river and found out a fact that
everyone in America is acquainted
with, namely, that it is the vilest in the
world. The Chicago people, however,
do not drink river water. The samples
of lake water examined were found free
from ahy substance deleterious to
health. The Lancet representative
thinks, however, that filtering or boil

whole the Lancet found out just what
ordinary people have always supposed
to be true. They have now the highest
n^effical authority for their belief.
