He was not drunk or we wo'ild liave taken care of him.'' The police have been hard at work on the and have learned that a friend of Murray ran into him late at night wandering around on First avenue, near Enst river. He advised Murray, who was then quite drunk, to take a Belt Line car for home, and that is the last trace that can be found of him. Late that night Capt. George Wallis, whose canal boat was unloading coal at the foot of East Thirteenth street, heard the cry of a man in the water near his boat. He searched long and thoroughly with his lantern to see the man whose shout he had heard, but failed to find him. There was no sound of a struggle. Capt. Wallis told the police and there was no one in sight on the docks. The detectives believe that the man whose drowning cry was heard by Capt. Wallis was Murray. They think he fell into the water while too drunk to help himself and was drowned. The closest search has not revealed the slightest evi- dence of foul play. BILLY MURRAY KNOCKED OUT. BITTING BULL. When the police reached Sitting Bull's camp on Grand river, about forty miles from Standing Rock, they found arrange- ments being made for departure. The cavalry had not yet reached the camp when the police arrested Bull and started back with him. His followers quickly ral- lied to his rescue and tried to retake him. In the fight that ensued Sitting Bull was killed. Five of the Indian police wers also killed. One of the police rode back to the cavalry and infan- try and after telling them to harry up to the stippart of the police buried on to the agency with news of the battle.

When the Indian police whonumbered about twenty men reached Sitting Bull's village, they found the Sioux all ready to depart for the southwest and instant action was net-essary to prevent this movement. The police at once made a, rush for Sitting Bull, surrounded him and telling him he was a prisoner started ar once on the trail for the agency. The old chief made no attempt at re- sistance. Hardly ha.l his capture been made when his son headed a party of Bull's followers and attempted to rescue their chief. A desperate fight and the police were gettiug the worst of ifcin the skirmish. Bull attempted to get awa; from his captors and to join the attacking pany of bis iriends. He fought wildly and was killed with several of fol- lowers. Seven of the Indian police n fell dead, and the whole band would prob- ably have been massacred had it. not been for the timely arrival of the cavalry. The St. Fa.nl Kid After a Rattling Fight of Thirteen Bounds. NEW YORK, Dec. much-talked of prize fight between Jimmy Kennard of St. Paul and Billy Murray of this city, 110-pound men, took place early yester- day morning near Stamford, Conn., and was witnessed by 300 sports from this city and vicinity. The fight was for a side. The men were in perfect form. Kennard was handled by Joe McAuliffe and Joseph Quinn did the honors for Murray. Frank Stevenson acted as referee. Ken- nard began the fighting, Murray acting on the defensive, but up to the eighth round very little execution was done. The eighth, however, was a rattler. It was give and take all the way through. Murray had a shade the best of the round. After this there was a lull until the twelfth round, when there was another rattling set-to. Kennard had much the best of this round. He landed heavily on Murray's stomach and face time and again, and had Murray groggy before the call of time. Murray planted many blows in Kennard's face during the round, but they lacked force. Both men were com- paratively fresh when time was called for the thin eenth round. Kennard began rush- ing matters and put in some heavy blows. He bad his man dazed, and before the round was half over he got in a stinger on Murray's jaw, completely knocking him out. About changed hands.
