PRICE FIVE CENTS  1ESUING CHAMPION WINS  After a Hard Struggle Jen  kins is Victorious Over  Beele  They   Wrestled    for One  Thousand Dollar Side  Bet  Now York,  June   10.���������In  a private  gymnasium    before a select      crowd  of sportsmen,   Fred   Heel,  of Wisconsin, and Tom ; Jenkins, of Cleveland,  Iiavc  wrestled   for $1,000.a side. Heel  of  whom little was  known, wrestled  1 lie old  champion  to a standstill and  then threw jhiin after ,a '.struggle, lasting  two hours and  43 minutes.  Jenkins      eventually *   won      the match,  , through superior weight, 1M'declared  -when it was over, that. Becl was the  hardest opponent  for his size      and  weight that, lie had e\er met. ���������  Only  about one  hundred  men  saw  the match, ; which   was  the best two  out of thice, falls, catch-as-catch-can,.  ami any hold but  the strangle allowed.    For nearly  an hour if was     a  fierce struggle.    For  minutes' at '    a  time  both men >stoo<l with, beads lowered like bulls,  their arms locked behind   each  other's  necks  and strain-  ing until  their muscles stood out like  whip-cords.    At last  they were over.  in  one  corner  of   the  ring  and   Jenkins .secured a half nelson and     was  about  to turn  Heel over.   Becl,'however,      wrenched himself loose,  and,  catching Jenkins olt luis. balance, turn  ed  him over like a flash" and pinned  his  shouldcis to the mat.    After     a  short  rest the  men came on for the  second  bout.    Jenkins was  thoroughly aroused and   went at Heel like   a  tiger.    After   (en   minutes  of wrestling, he hurled  the,little fellow wiHi  tenific   force  against   the  south wall  .and Heel came to the mat half ^azed-  It  was easy  work then for  Jenkin;  to get a   fall with a half nelson, lie  followed  with a.second" fall and   secured      the decision  in  quick  order.  Jenkins  weighed   190 pounds  and Heel  about   105.  WITHDRAWING  BATTLESHIPS FROM CHINA  John Bull's Rights Will Be  Protected by Cruiser  Squadron  And Britain's Naval Power  in Home Waters Will  Be Even Greater  *  London,  June  10.���������The decision of  lie  government  which has  been    announced     tin    telegrams  fromi l-Iong  Kong,  to send home the battleships  from   China,   the  British   China squadron  to consist henceforth entirely of  cruisers,  is interpreted as  the     outcome of  the destruction  of the Russian   fleet and   causes   much  satisfaction,  as  it  will   permit  Great  Britain   to follow .the example of   Germany      and     concentrate  her- naval  strength to a greater extent in home  waters.

'You   can   say for   me,"   said   Mr.  Parisi     June ���������*���������Citizens -audisoldiers are still   talking about   the unusual features of  the case in   which  one man held up an "army of nearly-a  thousand men for over a week,   then  succeeded in making bis escape, from  the/'castle" only.,to be captured   by  the peasants.    What adds to the gaiety of the nation .is the*fact that the  man was over seventy years of age.  The      Jesse James  ot  France was  formerly     a gamekeeper at Usseau,  near Chatellerault,  in  Haute Viennc.  He turned his house into a new Fort  Chambrol and  was captured  iu     the  small hours of the morning as he attempted  to  escape   across   the   fields  from his residence,  which was partly  destroyed by  the engineeis, who used  melinite.   General  Rabin superintended      the operations.    The affair has  been     treated as a joke by thePaiis  papers, but the fact remains that for  a whole week Roy defied the authorities of the department and  the government as well.   He shut himself up  in a' fort after having  fired at   and  severely wounded M. Grandpied, who,  he said, prevented  him  from  obtaining      employment.    M.   Grandpied's  daughter was also injured, but only  slightly, by a bullett. fired by Roy.  ��������� Roy next barricaded himself in his  house, whence he fired ^anfl wound  ed a law official, two gendarmes and  an infantry surgeon.    Troops had  to  be mobilized for  the purpose of taking this extraordinary septuagrnarian  whose audacity and  determination  also required  the  presence at  Usscau  of a general division, a colonel ?nd a  dozen army officers, not to spejk of  the department prefect and all     of  the local judicial  authorities.     The  soldiers employed  in  watching     the  house and approaches thereto at one  time numbered more, than eight liuu-  dred,-^-w,ith-tJiem  being =-a contingent,  of engineers from  Algiers. These engineers, under the order of a lieutenant, set to work at midnight.      All  the houses in the vicinity of the Roy  residence were emptied of their occupants, and the people were kept back  for nearly a mile. Nevertheless, thousands turned out to witness-the excitement, and the roads were''.blocked'  with motor cars.   Toward 'one .'o'clock!  in the morning, when everything was  ready     and the  men  had  put down  their  melinite bomb or  petard,   they  hurried      fcack    to   their  temporary  qluarters   in' the  village.    Suddenly,  there was a fearful explosion, aiid   a  blue  and      red   flame  shot  up   over  Roy's horse,    followed by smoke and  the fall of rut&ish. - The,little wing  of     the habitation   was  completely  shattered, -but   the  soldiers, did   not  dare  to enter until  daylight. ������������������ When  they did effect an entrance Roy  had  disappeared,   but   was   found  by   the  natives of the town wandering in the  The troops  and  gendarmes  JEWISH RIOT IN WESTERN  RUSSIA  Jew Was Beaten by' Sol  diersTfor Theft oi  Purse     U  i*  His Co religionists [Come to  His Rescue and Troops  Wire Summoned ���������  REPRESENTATIVES OF JA^  PAN & RUSSIA WILL MEET  Minsk,,  Western   Russia, 'nunc  10.���������  The report published in Ltwdon news  papers   that   100   persons, were  shot  during  the rioting here recfntly     is  incorrect.
