Johnny Hoagan met this morntngup the Hud
son nnd fought to a finish for the middle
weight championship of America and fJ,000
irl/onionej1 , London pure ting rules. The
ling was pitched near the shoic and the fight
began about S'HO. Ten illo lighting was done
rout the stait , clinching nnd pounding being
the oulcr. In the second round Dcmpsej'
'laltned ' that Kcagan was fouling him bjf
piking , and the icfcrcc cautioned Heagan
; igalnst it. In the thlid , however , Ucngan
incidentally spiked Dempsey In n teirlble
: natiner on the loft leg. The cut was so deep
that the bone eould bo seen. Theio was much
w i angling , Deinpsey's umpho claiming the
light. The icfcieo o vet looked it , however.
In thcllfth lotiiul the tide , whicii was well on
he Hood , began to ciccp into the ling and
Dempsej was compelled to move paitlyout
of his coiner. Still the men fought on des-
> eiatcly until the eighth i omul , which was
fought vvit'i ' water tluce Inches deep all over
the img. Dempsej's leg was now in a tcirl-
bio condition , rtnd as it pained him more , he
.coined . to fight moic despoiately , if possible ,
than before , punishing Reagan quite scveiclj' .
Thcro was no doubt bj' this time that Heagan
was no match for Dcmpsey In the matter ol
wiestling , and the latter had th'iown his op
ponent with ca'jo and vigor each tlmo thej1
clinched. At the close of the eighth i omul
the icfcrcc stopped the light until another
ring could bo pitched on diy land. The time
occupied dm ing these eight lounds was
eighteen minutes. All went to the boat and
thcpilncipals went to bed. The wiangling
between the pmtics continued loud and long ,
\t 12:10p : m. the light was resumed in a mucl
better place. Dempsey went right at Iteagan
and a clinch ensued , during which tcrnllc infighting -
fighting was done. It ended bjf Dcmpsej
back-hccling-Hcagaii and going down will
him lie.uily.
In the tenth Dempsey smashed Kcagan or
the nos with his loft and on the iiflso vvitli
his i igia w ith ten ifio force , drawing blopd
which was claimed but not allowed for Demp
scjas llcagan had got litstblood in tin
seventh. Heagan fought hind and fast am
elicited much praise.
In the eleventh and twelfthioundDempscj
pounded and tin ew Keagan again. It was
rv idcnt that the latter had the vvoist of tin
baigain in agicclng to London rules. Hi
went on , however , like u Spartan.
In the thlitccnth Dempsovagain attcmptci
to b lekhccl his opponent , who went down or
hU ! : " " " : { avoid a fall.
Kcagan was tliiown hard i : : b"Mi the four
tccnth mid fifteenth , while the infighting wai

In the sixteenth and seventeenth wcie lvv <
more falls for Dcmpscy , who also gavi
Heagan a tciriblc smash on the nose.
In the eighteenth and nineteenth the sami
thing was kept U ] ) , although Heagan fouglr
gamulj' and did the best ho could.
In flio twentieth Dcintisey kept up a tatto <
on Hcagan's ribs until the oo mg blood made
his bodj' appear law , when Kcagan wen
down to avoid another.fall. Dempsey cutset
him and told him to got'up nnd fight.
Keagan came up angi y for the twenty-firs
and the fighting was fmious , Dcmpsej're
letv'ing some hcavj' blows Heagan w.V
tin own , however , in this and the next lound
Hound twentj'-fivo was a savage one
Dempsej' pounding hK adveisatj's face in <

Hounds thiity-fivo'to thirty eight wen

quel to un alleged mutdcr mjsterj' , that for

iwrtion of the citizens of Dauphin county ,
Pcnnsj Ivnnln , vps brought to light hero j cs-
tc'nlny by the dlsco\cry of the supposed vic
tim , anil Identification by an old fiicnd after a
Inpso of jnoro than twenty j ears. The case
as related to the Utn coricspomlcnt by the
gentleman In question , Mr. riank ( . ! . Sliott ,
Is of a decidedly Interesting imtuic , and is in
substance us follows :
In the fall of 1MV3 and for many jcois pre
vious , there lived on the ontskli tsof the town
of Mlllcrburg , Dauphin county , Pennsylvania ,
aQeiman stonecutter and family named May-
cison. The family consisted of the man nnd
wife nnd two sons the elder n favoillo of the
old man and the joungcr the mother's pride ,
and for whom the father seemed' to
have an unicasoniiH , ' hatred. Dining the
excitement subsequent to the picsidcnt's
call for voluuteciH , ncltl/cn'fi meeting was
held for the pin pose of forming it company
and marching to the fi out. Young Mavei-
son , who was about nineteen jeais of ago ,
cvpiessed a w Ish to attend the meeting and
enlist. The father objected , and cxpiossed
his objections with a threat to "bleak his
neck" If ho went. In spite of this the young
man attended the meeting and enlisted.
After the meeting Majerson ictiirncd home ,
was mot in the barn by the angiy father , and ,
neighbors asserted , a teiribfb FLCIIC ensued.
The old man's ' oaths and tin eats \\ero plainly
heard , and a woman's tea iDlc screams , and
then all was quiet. The j oung man was ncer
seen again. As ho failed to join his company
thci o could bo but ono conclusion diawn as
to the sect ct of the quarrel between father
and son that the missing man was murdcicd
and the body put out of the way , the old man
claiming himself that the j oung man sti uclc
him nnd then disappeaicd.
The case v as never fully investigated , but
as the body could not bo found no an ests
wore made , and old Mnvcrson's wealth
and previous Inllucnco in the neighborhood
sen ed to quiU any public expressions , of ills-
plcasura that might otherwise have been
made. Forscveial jcars tho-family lemaincd
in the neighboi hood , micLtha affair was al
most foicottcn. The mfflicr , it was Jtnow n ,
had rot left nor loom since the eventful
night. The clilcr son asset led tilfit li ! mother
wus hopelessly insane , and was kept a pi is-
oner in the house. Old Alaveison letircd
fiom business and lemoved his family to
Philadelphia , whoio his wife soon died. In-
tcicst lu the affair was lovlved , however ,
some time later , when it was learned that
before his removal from the place old Majer
son had 'disposed of a man's skeleton to a
local physician , but nsido fiom commenting
uixm it nothing lurther was done , and doubt-
! ? J * > ' thjs time , the entire affair Is forgot
ten In the iicfehbnruood of its occuucnccand
the sequel will bo n gie.-it surpiise.
Mr. 1 < \ A. Shott is a tie inspector for the
Missouii Pacific laihoad , and was a personal
fucnd of joung Majeison befoio his
mjsterious disappearance , mid vividly
iccalls the circumstances , which aio
coioboiatedbvsovcial gentlemen wht ) were
neighboi a of the family at the time. In visit
ing this city sometime ago Mr. Shott met and
f 01 mod the acquaintance of Mr. John.T. Tiuo ,
a well known and wealthy farmer icsiding
about fourteen miles noithwcstof the city ,
and upon leal ning that both hailed fiom the
same place in Pennsj Ivania , accepted an in
vitation to spend a week at tho'latter's home.
The old home was talked about , icininisences
related , and then , . Mr. True betnned his
identity by undue interest in the fate of the
Majeison family. Mr. Shott rccogni/ed in
Ti uo his old boj hood friend , Gcoi go Maj er-
son.mul the iccognition was acknowledged
by True , who related the circumstances of
his mjsterions disappcnianco from his lio'mo
in the fall of IStU. Upon his return fiom the
meeting on the evening in question his father
attempted to chastise him for disobedience ,
his mother pleaded for the boy , w lieu the
father lost contiol of his temper and struck
thojoung man over the head w ith an axe
handle. Thtf blow knocked him sense
less , and when ho recovered coneiousncss
how as alone and decided to run aw nj' . He
made his way to Ilauisbuig nnd enlisted in
company H , Sixteenth United States infmi-
tiy , under his assumed nnma nnd was soon
ordered to the fiont , and with his company
was ordered fiom place to pfaco until ho was
woundejl whifb doing picket dutj' , on the 2Mb

diublcdhim. Ho was sent fiom ono hospital
to another nnd dragged mound over the coun-

up in Harrisburg , Pa. Horecei\ed his dis-
( luugo and upon learning of his mothci's
death and that his father was suspected of
his murder , ho decided to leave suspicion icst
upon his hateful patent nnd came west , locat

moved to his picsent faun northwest of this
