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. CHICAGO, Dec. following tele- gram was received at army headquarters: ST. PACT., Minn., Dec. 15. Col. Corbin, Assistant Adjutant General, Chicago: S tting Bull arrested this morning at daylight "by Indian police. Friends attempted his rescue; fight ensued. Sitting Bull, his son Blackbird, Catch Bear and four other, were killed: also Indian police. Capt. Fietchet arrived just in time witli two troops. Hotch- kiss _'n'i Gatiin guns drove Indians away and secured the body of Sitting Bull. By command of Gen. Miles. MATTS, Aide. ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. 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.

Carl Holtz, nn aged widower, lived in the upper fl it of a tene- ment house on West Chicago avenue with his son Paul, aged 16. The two slept in the same bed. Monday night tho boy went to bed first. He took with him an old table knife which he tucked under his pillow.

LOXHOV, IX-c. ugly feeling be- tween Isi-h factions has bes'ii growing more inti-nse Mnce Healy's unsparing de- nunciation of Parnell Sunday, and every- body has predicting bloodshed. It came yesterday, and for the time, also, in many vears priests took a per- sonal part in the fray. The excitement in London is intense, and it is sai-lto be even greater in Dublin. Mr. Balfour has ordered the concentration of a large force of constabulary at Kilkenny, to be ready for prompt dispatch to any place where serious violence is apprehended. This is a change from the orders formerly given, which were to interfere as little as possi- ble, and let the Parnellites and anti-Par- nellites have full latitude so long as they broke nobody's heads b-.r their own. Mr. Balfour is criticised for not having guarded against yesterday's riot, which narrowly escaped being an immediately fatal one. Fortunately owing to the severe enforce- ment of the law restricting the of fire arms there are very few of these in the district where the strongest animosity prevails, and fatalities are therefore less likely to occur. At the moment of the at- tack upon Davitt's crowd, the one-armed patriot bad just been denouncing Parnell as a shameless reprobate and traitor to his friend's and to the Irish cause. The words were uttered in so loud a tone that they were plainly audible to the people in the Parnell meeting. One of these jumped up, and flourishing a blackthorn ex- claimed: "Let at them out the gang of Gladstone lickspittles; no English dictation; God save Ireland." The cries excited the crowd to fury and though Mr. Parnell held up his hand dep- recatingly, they rushed with one accord upon the Davitt men. The priests who were npon the platform with Davitt were the first to rise and leap down among the combatants, Eavitt and Tanner following. Davitt, not being in good physical condition, was carried along and almost trampled down in the rush of his own followers, and there is some doubt whether he received the blow on his head from an enthusiastic admirer who aimed it at a Parnellite, or whether it was in- flicted by a stone thrown from the Par- nellite ranks. Both crowds, as they fought, shouted: "God save in- termingling this with that of "Parnell and "Down with the "Davitt's the man for etc. A priest whose name is not learned, was conspicuous in the Davitt ranks by bis height and strength of arm. Just as the Davitt men were giving way, this priest, by two powerful blows, right and left, laid low two of the foremost assailants and revived the courage of his own side. The Parnellites, however, had the ad- vantage when the interference of the police resulted in restoring quiet. Dav.tt's injury causes him much pain, but it is not considered alarming. In the cases of some of the wounded serious results are dreaded. The organ of the McCarthyites has assumed the name of "Insuppressible the court having enjoined the use of the title "The Suppressed United Ireland." The London board of works has decided to have two-thirds of the city's streets lighted with electricity. At present not a. single street is so lighted. A nickel mine ha? been discovered near Frankenstein, Prussia. pacing JIUJ') tO .'ittl'J.! was ho'-f'l, i-l Davitt Lent word to Pat- iicll tl'- ii hi" uouid corao and standby him he v.o-jld irr ,-j him a pi-aeea! 1" lu-a-.ing Mr. Pa nell replied. "I am not in a pe- tition to treat; I am cnly in a r.os.tioTi to fight." 'Il'tti Addressing a- audience he said he valued the quality and not the quantity of his hearers. He expr ssed confidence that tbe voice of K iken-ny would be for him. He spoko in an impassioned vein, de- claring that he would not. assail any one, nor would hr- ask permission to speak from a cock-sparrow, like Tanner or a jack- daw, like Davitt. A body of Davitt'a up, another row occurred. During tbe scrim- mage, some miscreant threw a of lime at Parnell. It struck him full in the face and the lime filled t-yes, blinding him and causing him intense pain. His carriage was just driving away when the lime was thrown. After riding some distance he was ooliged to alight at R laborer's cabin in a fainting condition. A doctor was called, but could do little to assuage the pain. He urged that Mr, Parnell should be driven immediately to Kilkenny for proper The start w as made, but Mr. Parnell was unable to endure the agony, and another stop had to be made at a hotel on the road, where another doctor endeav- ored to relieve the sufferer by applying castor oil to his eyes and attempting to scrape off the lime with tbe point of lead pencil. Some slight relief was thus afforded, and Mr. Parnell finally reached the Victoria hotel in Kilkenny, where nfi bad to be led to a room, being unable to use his eyes.
