of the employers hnvo given In. London's
grcatcartlngagonclcsarn threatened , the van
drivers expressing a determination to go out
before the end of the week. There appears
to bo a universal demand for nn increase of
wages and almost every trndo Is seizing the
present opportunity to prosunt Its demand.
The dock laborers , with whom the strlko
originated , still ronmin firm and have re
ceived many additions to their ranks , They
have also perfected n system of pickets , who
arc on duty day and night nt the dock gates ,
railway stations In the rTver and along the
streets , who intercept and generally bIng
over the laborois brought from the provinces
by the dock authorities to assist In unloading
ships. Never before has the business nf the
great port of London been in such a paralyzed
condition as It Is to day. Cargoes of meat
from Australia and fruit and eggs from the
continent are rotting in ship holds.
Interviews were hold yesterday between
the representatives of the men and the em

The rather radical move of Mr. Hulskamp
in deciding to nrrest Mr.Vest was the ro-
suit of an all night conference between the
present proprietors of the Times , Messrs.

About 3 o'clock this afternoon Mr. West

Deputy Sheriff Hnstko , appeared nt the

ranco long enough to produce an Injunction

ho meeting to an abrupt close , and at 3:30 :

Messrs. Hulskamp and Dunlopnnd , their

plan of action , while Messrs. Wist nnd

Just at this juncture Constable Lavvler

MILWAUKEE , WK , August 27. [ Special
Telegram to THE BUB. ] Yostcrdav was the
day of hand shutting nnd sociability among
the veterans. No ordnr was thought of , and
the private was , as great a man as the gen
eral and was on familiar terms with him.
To-day the conditions nro different. This
Is thn real Grand Army day , when the men
fall Into line und obey orders , whou the oni
cer receives as his right the regulation salute
of his subordlnato.
The old soldier this morning as ho rolled
out nf his bunk of straw or from under the
counterpane , as the case might bo , Instinc
tively gave himself an extra shulto for uppoar-
auce's sake , smoothed out a few wrinkles in
his clothes or brushed from them the dust
of travel. It was the day ot dtcss parade ,
and the veteran who was not anxious to look
well and desirous that his company or regi
ment should make a coed appearance was
not worthy of his name.
This morning the cities and towns of the
state seomoa to have emptied themselves In
Milwaukee. In the hotels the crush was
terrible. It was all ouo cauld do to force his
way through. In the Plankmton house espe
cially , whcro General Sherman , General Al-
ger , Commissioner Tanner and Mrs. Logan
were , crowds wcro standing around wait-
ng to got a glltnps'o of the distin
guished parties. Mrs. Logan , coming
down the st6ps from the largo
dining hall about 9 o'clock leaning on the
arm of General Algar , was forced to hold
nn Impromptu reception , as a crowd of vet
erans from ouo direction nnd a bevy of la-
die ! , from the opposite direction rushed to
Mrs. Logan had n distinguished appear
ance us she stood a stop above the crowd before

silver white hair wreathed in smiles She
seems never to tire of receiving the greet

never tire of greeting her. She divides
the honors with General Sherman.
Though the parade was not to start from
Twenty-second street until 10 o'elock'psoplo '
began to seek advantageous positions from
which to view the line us early ns 8 o'clock.
In fact these from the interior towns who
came in as early as 7 o'clock hied them at
once to suitable positions and there held
their ground till the veterans had passed by.
The day was perfect , despite the premo
nition of rain during the early morning
hnurs , and everything favored the success
of the grand parade.
The parade , while not so largo as some an
ticipated , was well managed , n fine spectacle
and n complete success. Athingromarkablo
in the history of big processions was that it
started on time. Tno hcud of the columns
began to move at 10 o'clock and reached the
reviewing stand on Grand avenue at 10:8l : ) .
A conservative estimate of the number of
men who passed that point plaios it at
A noticeable incident of the parade was
the enthusiasm of the old veterans when
ever they caught a glimpse of General Sher
man. Ho was greeted with round after
round ot cheers while the bands forgot their
admonition not to ' '
play 'Marching Through
Gcoruia , " and the grizzled old hero of the
triumphal march through the south had to
listen to the tune that has dinned in his ears
ever since the war closed. Occasionally a
veteran in the ranks would break out with n
sally at his old general , ' 'Oh , you'll live to
flcht through another war , " while another
shouted , "How about these chickens ? " To
the latter's Interrogative General Sherman ,
wha was as tickled as a school boy , replied :
"Oh , I never took the trouble to inquire
whcro they cnmo from. "
The Pennsylvania delegation made the best
appearance of any post in the line , and were
conspicuous for their soldierly bearing
throughout the entire parade.
There were two magnificent spectacles to
bo seen about the time the paraao started.
Ono was obsorvublo.f rom the intersection of
Eighth street on Grand avenue. Looking
down the avenue to the bridge , with the
gaudily bedecked bridge as a background and
all the way up on both sides of the street as

sented a panorama which no one- who saw it
is likely to forget In a lifetime. It was grand
and imposing , und how gay it looked withal.
Thcio was breczo enough to keep the banners
and floes fluttering aud tbo lively movements

SAN FHA.NCISCO , August 'J' . f Special Tele
gram to Tin : Bee , ] Great Interest was
tnkon to-night In the fight between Jack
Dompso.V and La Blanche , 'Tho Marino , "
which occurred under the auspices of the
California Athletic club. Four thousand
porsous witnessed the set-to ,
Hiram Cook acted as referee.
The betting for several days has boon in
Dcmpsoy's favor. Both men entered the
ring in flno condition , Dempsey weighing 107
and La Blanche 101 pounds.
Tluio was called at 0:35. :
The Marino forced the fighting in the
early part of the contest and several sharp
blows wuro exchanged ,
In the fifth round the Marino clinched nnd

hisses nnd applause. Sharp in lighting fol
In the sixth ho lifted Dempsey on his hip
and tried to throw him , following this with
several rushes nnd accomplishing little.
In the ninth La Blanche clinched and
throw Dempsey again amidst cries ot "foul , "
During La Blanche's rushes In the tenth
Domoaoy struck him two staggering blows
on tha JaW ,
After the gong had rung for the close of
the round the Marino struck Dempsey in the
face and retired to his corner. Dampsoy
walked over to him and landed a hard one on
the Marino's neck \\hleli made the latter
In the thirteenth and fourteenth Dempsey
got m several had ones on the Marino's * Jaw
and chest und the Mat ino seemed unsteady.
In the sixteenth LaBlancho resumed his
rushing tactics , but after a clinch Dempsey
landed with awful force on his nose. Ho
repeated some of these staggerers in the
seventeenth , eighteenth und nineteenth ,
iu the latter round gaining the ilrst knock
down of the light by a tremendous blow on
the Marino's nock.
Dempsey continued to pursue his aggressive
sive- tactics , nnd in the twenty-third round
the Marino was showing the effects of his
punishment. During the clinch , however ,
ho pounded Dempsey hard on the ribs. In
the twenty-sixth Dempsey forced his op
ponent into his corner and pounded him in
the neck. La Blanche slugcrorod like a
drunken man. Before the close of .tho
round , however , ho recovered astonishingly
and caught Dempsey hard.on tbo neck.

Not 1 heir 1'irst Fight.
All day yesterday and up to la to last night
tbo ono theme of conversation among the
sports wan the Dcmpscy-Marino fight , and ,
while the majority of the knowing ones ex
pressed themselves as confident that Jack
would win , there was a goodly number who
considered the Marine's chances of victory
very good , and some considerable- money at
the odds of UVo to ono was laid at the Dia- ,
mohd last night to this effect.
This was not the first meeting of the two
men. They fought a most desperate battle
a little over three years ago , at Larchmont ,
on Long Island Sound , Dempsey knocking
the Marino out in tha thirteenth round. It
was a Quccusbcrry fight , but the bloodiest
and hardest over fought in this country. Lo
Blanche hold his own m gi eat form for seven
or eight lounds , in ono or
two of i which ho had much
the best of the Nonpareil , but In the tenth
round the tide of battle turned in Jack's '
favor. In this round , in breaking away from
a Plinch , Dempsey lauded his right ia on Lo
Blanche's Jaw , knocking him off his feet and
all but knocking htm out. The Marino's seconds
ends were loud In their claims of a tout , but
this the rcfcrco would not allow , but ordered
the men to go on and fight it out , and m the
thirteenth round Lo Blanche succumbed ,
being literally cut to pieces and Jabbed
into insensibility. Lo Blanche in
this fight was clearly outgoner-
allod , for ho was in the very pink of condi
tion , and bigger and stronger than ho will
ever bo again In his life. By clover ducking
and dodging Dempsey won the fight. The
Marino went Into It lllto a mad bull and un
dertook to rush the wiry Nonpareil oft the
face of the earth , but every rush was mot
with sallies of rights and lofts that soon
knocked the Ufa out of the ferocious Marine.
Although Dempsey was whipped , he docs
not lose the middleweight championship , as

When the history ot the United States
man-of-war Texas Is written It will bo likely
to dim some of tho- luster with which tiia
democratic ! organs have surrounded the east
administration , and especially that ot Secre
tary Whitney. Secretary Whitney began
Lho rehabilitation of the American navy
because congress first appropriated tha
money necessary for this just us Mr. Whit
ney began his term , The secretary
Imd about him all the sumo
naval constructors nnd' designer *
Lhat had been In the department for years ,
The saiiio men in ado the plans for the most
of the ships for which contracts are now out ,
who would have made them had It been a republican
publican Instead of a democratic administra
tion In control , but Mr. Whitney's backers
paid no attention to this. They were deter
mined that the first democratic secretary of
the navy sluco the war should hnvo the ere Jit
of expending Iho money which a democratic
congress Had provided and which the sumo
democratic- congress had refused to provide
for republican administrations.
Among the vessels to bo built were the
Mnlno nnd the Texas , two enormous battle
ships , which it was determined to construct
In the navy yufds Instead of permitting them
to bo built by contractors. Mr. Whitney
offered a largo sum for plans , which sum wna
finallyawarded to nn English concern. Tha
plans were nccopted and the vessel was
named the Texas and work begun Iu tha
Norfolk navy yard. Shortly after the keel
had been laid exports in naval construction
announced that there was some
thing wrong , nnd that the Texas
would never float If completed under the de
sign. Mr. Whitney caused the matter to ho
nvestigutod , mid criticism was hushed up
ay the statement that the experts had dis
covered that the Texas was all right. The
worB which had been suspended was begun
again and continued until a short time ago ,
when Secretary Tracy had his attention
called to the matter , nnd ho determined
to make a now investigation. For
SOUIQ weeks the ofllcors of the
construction bureau of the navy department
iiavo been making a careful estimate upon
the displacement of water which will follow
the launch of the Texas with her full ui ma-
ineut of heavy rifle guns. These calcula
tions have been drawn up In a formal report
nnd uro awaiting the secretary's return.
Willie the navy department pcoplo do not
feel warranted in giving out information con
cerning the matter , it is known that the
experts have convinced thcmsnlvcs that the
Texas cannot weather a five-knot breeze if
completed under the plans upon which she Is
being built. In fact it is said that she would
sink with the weight of her gun metal.
The Texas was designed to cost $3,000,000.
More than $330,000 have already been ex
pended upon her and this money is prac
tically wasted. It is believed that she will
have to bo cut In two and length-
sued out a great many foot to
bo of quy service , and that it will bo impos
sible to'malto her a first-class vessel-in - spite
of anything that can bo dono. The chances
arc that she will bo abandoned entirely nq'd
that the money will bo used In the construc
tion of an entirely now ship. 't
