The whole neighborhood was literally torn to pieces. Almost everything within half a mile Was raised from the ground.

LASOI.EY-, Texas, February 22.— Peter Maher was knocked out by Bob Fitzsimmons in 1 the first ro und after one minute and thirty-five seconds of actual fighting. Fitzsimmons played the same old game he lias so' often played before, leading on his opponent until he had him where he wanted him, nfld then landed a lightning right 'hrvud swing on the ja\v, and it was over. It was the identical blow that knocked out Jim Hall in New Orleans. For the first part of the round, Maher had thp better of it. He led often and forced the fighting. In h is eagerness to get at Fitzsimmons, he committed a palpable foul during a clinch and was warned by Referee Siler tluit its repetition would cost him the fight. Maher f taught well, but he was no match for his opponent, w ho proved himself one of the craftiest men that ever stepped into a ring.

VENEZUELAN AGREEMENT. aw minors and says the saloonkeeper shall not permit .them to enter his place of )usiness. The evidence was to the effect that the son of a tailor on the East Side had entered the saloon on numerous occasions with a letter from his father directing the saloonkeeper to let him have beer in a pail. The old tailor went on the stand and testified that he had arranged with Miller for this, and that the boy went there at his direction and for the purpose of buying ^beer for him. Miller admitted having made sales to the boy, but claimed the right to do so with the parents' written consent. The court in instructing the jury directed it to rotur$ a verdict of guilty if it found the bpy had been permitted in the pl»ce arid ;had purchased liquors there. The, yerdict was fcmnd op this instruction, It is'claimed ,by the prosecuting attorney that under the, law 9 father is not guardian of his eon when it comes to permitting him to enter a s»' loon before he arrives ,&t'age, and that' every saloonkeeper Avlia "permits » minor to''ente/ih|8 place $f business is guilty ofjft>Matf TO w the' fa $PWl&*m °*« be^jertafned, 375, by various other <?thar City, wwty.

Tlio • authorities in Washington feel that they have reason to be gratified at the outcome of the case which as revealed by the cor respond' ence came nearer thao the public was a ware -at one time of leading to a severance of the diplomatic relations between the United Ktrttesund France. The point -at issue was, not whbthc.r Waller was guilty, but whether our government had the right to i«i>U>t on satisfying itself that justice had been done him, France submitted evMejut'e to the United State* authorities that satisfied them of WulJcr'v feoiilt, and hi« release was a great evidence ol the § ood feeling of France for the United tates.
