11IE GETS DECISION
BESTS JIMMY CARROLL IT
OLD RIVALS MEET AGAIN
Carroll Had Mac Going : In the Tl.lri
Itouml , bat "VVus Unublo to Follow
Un the Gnlt General Opinion
Among : Sporting : Men That
Moth Have Outlived
Sax Fuaxcisco , Nov. 23. Jacli
McAulift' , the lightweight champioi :
pugilist of the world , and Jimmy Car
roll , his old-time rival , and three times
his antagonist in the ring for thai
honor , met last night before St.
Georges club in a ten-round bout tc
forever settle the question of superior
ity. In all their previous battles Me-
Auliffe has been the victor , though
never without a hard fight.
Although Carroll has passed his 40th
year , he is a well preserved man , and
has trained long and faithfully for
this , perhaps his last fight , and was in
prime condition. IcAuliffe was also
in good condition. Five thousand people
ple witnessed the fight.
Betting on the fight has been quite
brisk , with IcAuliife ruling slightly
favorite at odds of S'J to S10 , though
considerable money changed hands at
' " "
At the beginning ot the fight Mc-
Auliffe adopted rushing tactics , forc
ing his opponent to the ropes repeated
ly , but the pace was too hot to last ,
and at the end of the third round he
had bellows to mend. From that time
on until the last round his blows
lacked steam , and it was noticeable
that whenever he got Carroll in a tight
place , after one of these rushes , he
dropped his bauds and retreated to the
center of the ring. The men frequent
ly indulged in conversation during the
last few rounds , but in such low tones
as to be inaudible to those at the ring
side. The consensus of opinion was
that both men had outlived their repu
tation as fighters , and that they had
agreed to make it appear a genuine
fight , but to avoid a knockout.
The last round was a series of
clinches , neither striking an effective
blow , although frequent openings oc
curred , lleferee Armstrong gave the
decision to McAuliffe. The audience
was not entirely satisfied with the
manner in which the men fought the
last round , but the decision seemed to
meet the approval of the majority.
REVIEW OF TRADE.
Gain in Volume of ' Business Continues
New Yoijk , Nov. 23. E. G. Dun &
Co. ' s weekly review says : The gain in
volume of business continues entirely
without precedent. More than 3110 es
tablishments have started work since
the election , which were idle , and at
least 300 have increased working force ,
making G00 concerns which are known
to have added largely to the number of
[ lands at work , and those are only part
? f the whole number. Every day thus
ulds thousands to the number of those
, vho are able to buy a week's supply of
provisions and to make up gradually
* or many months of enforced economy.
\lready this brings a great increase
.n the volume of business and the clear-
ng house figures , for the first time in
several years , not only exceed those of
asc year by 10 per cent , but also exceed
hose of the same week in 189.by 0

Spain Tiring of Weyler.
Washixgtox , Nov. 18. It is learned
here on authority that the Spanish
government has given General Weyler
to understand that he must push his
operations against the insurgents ag
gressively and vigorously. Unless he
soon achieves a decisive victo ' over
the Cubans it is believed he will be re
called. General Weyler , it is tinder-
stood , is aware of the alternative and
his present campaign in Pinar del Rio
is expected to result in an engagement
that will put a new aspect on the
Cuban situation one way or the other.
General Weyler has all the troops
that he can use. There are over 200 , -
000 Spanish soldiers in Cuba and the
force under the captain general in his
present operations in the field in per
son is over 00,000 men. Maceo , against
whom he is now operating , has under
him , it is estimated , about 7,000 men.
Spain having fulfilled all of Genei'al
Weyler ' s wishes as to troops , now ex
pects results from him. Consul Gen
eral Lee has acquainted the adminis
tration with these facts and the Presi
dent is at present simply awaiting
events and will shape his course by the
It is the hope of General Weyler that
he will be able to score a decided vic

lion within the next two weeks , if pos
Eleventh Census Labor Statistics Mil
lions Without Work.
Washixgtox , Nov. IS. Hon. Carroll
D. Wright , commissioner of labor , in
charge of the eleventh census , has
transmitted to the secretary of the in
terior a special report on the statistics
The most interesting feature of the
report relates to the qnestion of the
unemployed. Similar data relative to
the unemployed were collected at the
census of 1880. but were not compiled ,
30 this is the first time in the federal
census that information of this char-
lcter has been presented in connection
ivith the statistics of occupations.
There were 2.i,73r , ( j61 persons 10
pears of age and over engaged in gain
ful occupations in 1890 , of whom 1S , -
521,090 were males and 3.9I4.57L fe-
nalcs. Of these , 3.013.117 males and
10G13 females , or a total of 3.f 23,730
icrsons. were unemployed at their prin
cipal occupations during some part of
; he census year ending May 31. 1890.
Of the whole number of persons so
memployed , JS1S,8(55 ( were uni'in-
iloyed from one to three months ,
. .318,313 from four to six months and
13(5.447 ( from seven to twelve months.
L'his is equivalent , approximately , to
,139,072 persons unemployed at their
irincipal occupations for the entire
welve months , and this number would
epresent 5.01 per cent of the total
lumber of persons engaged in gainful
iccupations in 1390
Divided as to s x , the approximate
lumber of males unemployed at their
• rincipal occupation for the entire
ensus year was 972.000 , representing
.10 per cent of the whole number of
aales at work , while the approximate
mmber of females unemployed at their
irincipal occupations during the same
period was 107.072 , representing 4.2S
> er cent of the whole number of fe-
lalcs at work.
VEYLER NOT DOING WELL.
he Spanish Captain General May Ho
Outwitted by the Rebels.
IIavaxa , Nov. IS. No news , official
r otherwise , is obtainable here con-
erning the movements of Captain
eneral Weyler and his army now in
ursuit of the insurgent forces under
ntonio Maceo in the province of
inar Del Rio , and the insurgents are
irculating reports of Spanish defeats ,
here seems to be ground for the be
ef that the captain general has not
tet with the success he anticipated.
It is no longer denied that the in-
irgents have captured the two quite
nportant towns of Cascorro and Guai-
lara. in Puerto Principe. As intimated
> me time ago , there is no doubt that
a insurgent army of about 10.000 men
advancing upon the city of Puerto
rincipe. capital of the province of
AIR WILL CASE ENDED.

J. 1' . Bishop and Colonel Drake met fl
yesterday and decided to open a church ' V
of non-sectarian character , at which' '
silver as well as religion will be con-

attitude of some pulpits on the finan- * < V

her of church people from sympathy | S
with existing organizations. It is not fl
proposed to have Mr. Brobst preach. M
nothing but silver sermons. The > H
founders said yesterday that the pure. • M
gospel from the Bible would bur / M

church can extend its good influences ' < fl
through humanitarian work , uncL t fl
demonstrate the usefulness of a prac- j" > S
tical religion to those who care little J *
for it now. H
