Twenty-three was apparent
this round that it was n question of cndur-

wure exchanged. Twice Costello essayed lo
knock out his opponent and each timu Groe-
gains cleverly uuekod to save himself from

by plaining 'i wicked loft-bund blow on Cos-
li'llo's lace mid getting away without return.
Both men fougnt Ilko wild cats in ihla round , *
und it was only the superb condition they

In the next four rounds there was little pun
At ttiu end of tbo thirty-seventh It was

Scnm * and i'ubit , tiib latter with Us four
auxiliaries , with noipital slock of $10,003-

000,0011. to supply the world with hoer Is the
gigantic enterprise which Is being fathered
by the Hothschllds ot ICnglnnd , nnd the cnn-
suraniiitlou of which Is nuiong the possibili
ties. That It will bo ultimately nccom-
pllshod , Mr. Adolphus Busch , pwaident of
the Anheuser-Busch Brewing company ,
Mates there Is reason to bollnva , nua when
scon by n reporter lust night the millionaire
brewer seemed enthused over the nroposl-
tiun. Tlio fact that the Rothschilds are ut
the botlom of It makes possible tha carrying
out of such n mammoth scheme , but It does
not mean that is to bo nn English enter
prise. In the words of Mr. Busch It 1s to bo
im institution of the world , und interests lu
It are to bo hold wherever the bonds can bo
Will Control llio World's Trnilr.
\Vitn the four breweries mentioned con
solidated In ono enormous interest the
world's market will bo controlled from
America even moro oftoctually than it Is at
prosent. The combined output will bo some
thing enormoui , as tbo schema involves an
Increase of the capacity ot each brewery
conccrnnd , and it Is claimed that the com
bined interests of the world ouUddo of the
now ontcrprlso will not reach the .niter's
capacity. For several months past rumors
have been rlfoof a tremendous browcry
deal. None , however , have oven "hinted at
ho true state of affairs , 'and , nltboQgh a
'ouroscntativo ' of Ibo Hothscbllds hus visited

vcro nt'gotiatoa by M. do Fries of Londoh ,

He arding ino negotiations. Mr. Busch
iays : "When 1 was in Europe last summer
bad conferences in London nt which M. do
.ries urged upon mo the value of such un
nlcrnrisn and wont into details concerning

imo is not yet ripe. lu tact , tbo mutter has

hat Iho scheme is nn assured fact. It is
mnrcly a proposition. I have not scon und
.ulkod to any of the people Interested In the
matter on this side and will say that it has
ot yet reached any'definite stage. "
On nn i\port : Trade i\uluslvely.
As stated , the breweries involved are en
gaged In filling the export trade almost ox-
: luslvcly , und are the four principal export
jrutvurios of the country aim , Indeed , of the
ivorld. It will bo seen , therefore , that Iho
breweries whicn manufacture for homo con-
umplion are not Involved. This accordingly
ixcluaos the KngllsB syndicate breweries of
St. Louis , U3 well ns . .nil the local independ
ent , breweries , with the exception of the
William J. Lomp , they manufacturing , ac
cording to Mr. liuich , for homo consumption
3iily. The combined output of the four con
cerns mentioned is now nearly 4,000.000 bar
rels annually. "
Say it is rulm-Iiooil.
Mn.w.tuKic : , Wts. , Nov. 23.The brewers
of Milwaukee indignantly deny too state
ments coming from St. Louis regarding the
consolidation of breweries. They charaotor-
zo tbo whole ufTuirus nn advertisement , sent
out fora certain St. Louis brewing company ,
tending to show that this brewing company
manufactures moro ueur than anv other in
llio United States. To substantiate this
otatumont the brewers refer to ibo attempt
to loy creat stress on the comparative
output ol tbo thrcn largo breweries ,
which would have but little to do wuh u
oona lido statement. In a report from St.
Louis the capacity of the Pubst company Is
placed ut l.OOJ.OJO birrolsof boar annually ,
when In realltv Iho capacity Is 'J.OOO.OOU
barrels , without the addition of the Falk-
.lutifT and Borchcrt plant , which wus burned
down and not rebuilt. The actual output ol
the Pabst breworv from Dccombor 1 , IS'Jl ' ,
to November 2S , IS'.U ' , was 1OTO,000 barrels.
Dunug thu year 1701 the Anheusor-Busch
company turned out tJO'i.OOO barrels aod the
Scblilz company ,551,01)0 barrels. Captain
I'aost said that Iho St. Louis report was a
silly attempt to advertise a brewery.
