Ross's action on the Sullivan-Kilrain fight, which he preventedjrom coming off in Texas. Gov, Culberson has several copies of the order made, and it is certain he proposes to prevent the fight, Texas has a ranger force controlled and governed by special laws, and they can be ordered anywhere in the state by the governor without military red tape regulations, and their special province is to prevent infractions of laws. Culberson will probably use this force. Ross directed sheriffs to call on the military if necessary, and Culberson's actions unmistakably indicate he will do the same and prevent the fight at all hazards. ,». ¥., the International athieli6 6'ofi* tests between ttr§ representatives oi fieglafcd, the Ldtd8« Alfaletfe asso elation, afid the representatives of America, the New Iroffe Athietid association^ New ¥ofk Witnessed the greatest efent iil the history of the athletic World, falgatrickj of New 1 iTork, won the 880 yafds fun, time Ii53 2-5, beating the world's fedord by one second.
