Held In Defl of

1 Bo wen, tbe lightweight champion
pugilist of the South, died at 7 o'ciock
this morning from the effects of the
punishment received in his fiffht with
George Lavigne of Sagiraw, Mich.,
Wore the Auditorium Athletic club
last nifrht The light was a most
desperate one, in which Lavigne had
all the best of it after the first round
and made a chopping block out of the
fame but out-classed Crescent city
The knockout blow was delivered in
the eighteenth round when Lavinge
fplanted his left heavily over Bowen'a
iheart and crossing savagely with his
fright, landed a terrible O'Ovv on the
'ano-le of the jaw. liowen felt back

the floor heavily. Lavinge walked to
his corner, while Referee Duffy count
ed the ten seconds.
The beaten man was picked np
limp and to all appearances lifeless,
by his handlers and carried to his
dressing room. He remained uncon
scious from the time he received the
blow and was conveyed from his
dressing room at the club to his home
Ion Thalia street near Magazine.
I The scene at the house this morn-
i. ing was a most pathetic one. Dr. Ed.
Martin was called in at an early hour
land did all that human skill could
; do to save the life that hung
in the balance, but to no
avail The mother, of the pugilist,
when he was carried into
the house, predicted that he
Iwould never recover, while his young
"wife grew hysterical in her agony.
;They sat beside the unconscious man
and wept and prayed as only women
can, but of no avail. His eyes had
looked on them for the last time and
he never opened his lips.
I At 5 o'clock Dr. Finney thought
Bowen had improved and at that
hour he did not think that the fight
would have a fatal termination. n
reply to a request from the chief of
police. Dr. Finney sent a certificate
paying that Bowen was better. It
was a message of relief to Lavigne
and Duffy and the seconds, who had
been arrested when Bowen'a condi
tion became alarming.
The doctor remained with Bowen
the end. Just as the hands of the
ock were nearlng 7 Mrs. Bowen
eaned over the bed and said: "Oh,
Andy, say something to me." Andy
shivered and groaned, his frame
shook and then, without ever having
come back to consciousness after La
vigne had landed, he breathed his
i i ... a vn minn A novel. i
The news of Bowen's death was
ade known to Lavigne and his party
hortly after it had bsen communi-
ated by telephone to the central
station. Lavigne had been detained
;;at the station with his seconds and
'and attendants all night and he slept
but little, being anxious every mo
ment to get tidings from the bed
side of the wounded pugilist La
eigne, when he heard of Bowen's
death, expressed his profound sym
pathy for Bowen's wife.
,. In answer to a question he said
that he did not feel that he had been
the direct cause of the death of the
pugilist; in other words, the blow
iwhich he delivered on the jaw of the
dead man, he did not consider, had
'been sufficiently forcible to have car
fried with it fatal consequences. He
. said he believed that when Bowen
fell that his head had struck the pine
flooring and that the concussion had
been the cause of his death. He was
inot oniy sorry ior uowen s
death, but he ' was in much
apprehension as to what would be-
come of himself in connection with
ithe fignt and how long it was likely
rthat he would be kept it prison.
Friends assured him that he would
jprobably have no difficulty in obtain
ing bis release after the usual formal
ities of the law had been complied
with and that he need have no fear
of lack of friends and influence to
help him out of his unfortunate di
lemma. f Lavicrne was admitted to bail in the
turn of (10,000, the others $5,000.
Duffy, the referee, and Spitzfaden
Were the only ones to furnish bond.

Pay Roll for ovemhr Show an lav
ereaae of Earning of IB Per Cent.
New York, Dec 17. R. G. Dun &
Ox's weekly review of trade says:
Dun's review is enabled, by the
kindness of several thousand manu
facturers who have forwarded state
ments of their pay rolls of November,
this year, in 1803 and in 1803, to make
a very encouraging comparison of
earnings for that month, which
shows an increase in total payments
of J5.8 percent over last year, but a
decrease of 18.3 per cent in compar
ison with 1802. A statement of bands
employed shows that in tbe same es
tablishments 10.3 per cent more per
sons were employed than a year ago,
but 8.S per cent less than 1893. The
average of earnings for over 350,000
hands is 4 per cent larger than
in 1893, but 13.5 per cent
less than in 1893, and this
statement takes no account of
hours of work in the months com
pared, or of the establishments now
working at all this year. In some of
the industries more hands are at work
than in 1893, but in others the de
crease is large. Contradictory changes
in business are quite in order at in is
season. Neither the larger orders in
some branches nor the depression of
prices in others afford a safe indica
tion of the general movement But
the working foroe does not lessen
more than usual for the time of a
year and the demand for goods does
not seem to diminish, though in some
departments it is considerably below
the capacity of works in operation
and the volume of business transacted
is a little larger in comparison with
last year than in November.
The speculative markets have ad
vanced a little, through reasons hard
to find. Whea t is unchanged in price,
although , Western receipts are as
large as they were last year and At
lantic exports are 831,305 bushels,
against 1,039,000 a year ago. Corn is
a fraction weaker without any im
portant change in movement though
the receipts continue - remarkably
large. The heavy receipts of cotton
have broken down the price to $5.75
in spite of a strong speculative in
terest looking for some recovery from
the lowest point on record.
HER LOVE HAS COOLED.
Sirs. Brandt, Who Eloped With Preach
er Haney, Leaves Him In Anger.
Chicago, Dea 17. A morning paper
says that the Rev. Conrad Haney of
the Lake Avenue church, who de
serted his wife and children and fled
with Mrs. George V. Brandt has in
turn been deserted by . the woman,
the pair separating in Cincinnati af
ter a stormy interview between the
fuilty couple and a Mr. Huttig of
luscatine, a brother of Mrs. Brandt
The paper continues: "Mrs. Brandt
returned to Chicago last Thursday
night for a final leave taking of her
children and last night left the city
alone. She was accompanied to the
train by Mr. Brandt, who purchased
her a ticket to an Eastern seaport,
from whereit is said, she will take a
steamer to Europe. Those who saw
the parting say it was a tearless one."1
Where Mr. Haney has gone :s be
