Ban Francisco, October . The decision
"Smith wins," rendered by George Green,
referee of the Smith-Dixon fight on Mon
day night, doe. not deprive Dixon of
the feather-wetght championship of the
world. Th. Marquis of Queens berry rule
stipulate that all championship battles
shall be to a finish. Had 8m!;h knocked
Dixon out In any of the V round or
had Dixon's seconds thrown up the
sponge, or bad Dixon failed to respond
to the call of time in any of the rounds.
Smith would today be the feather-weight
champion of the world. But as It was,
Dixon at the end of the th round was
strong and belligerent, consequently he
did not surrender the champloshlp by
world he must fight and beat Dixon to
a finish, which he declare, he S ready
to do at any time.
Green's decision Is universally accepted
a an eminently fair one.

letter received from St. Michaels vlt the

It is not to guard against piiu':s thnt

i Chicago, October . Fanned by a strong
wind from the west, the fire which broke
out In the Dexter park pavilion at the
Union Stock Tarda this afternoon spread
to the district between Halstead street
and Union avenue and 40th street, de
molishing business houses and residences.
The worst sufferers among the residents
were those living along Halstead street,
between 43d and 44th streets. The busi
ness houses and residences alike were
all of them fram structures, and fur
nished steady material for the flames,
which raged from 3 o'clock until 3 o'clock,
and then yielded to the vigorous work
of the fire department.
The total damage to the pavilion is
estimated at more than JCO.OoO, but it
may exceed that, as the exact number
of horses burned in the fire Is not known
and the calculation of the amount of
feed stored in the pavilion is yet to be
A number of persons were injured dur
ing the fire, and one man, according to
an employe of the stockyards, wus burned
to death; Patrick Casey, employe of the
stockyards, not serious; Maurice Molo

and heat, will recover; W. P. Shea ha n,

Tide of War Turned Against the Rebels
New York, October 6. A dispatch to
the Herald from Gautemala says:
Official reports from all points today
give accounts of many victories for Dic
Now it begins to look as if the tide of
war has turned strongly against the
rebels. According to official reports Just
received the city of Quesaltenango, w"hlch
bad been occupied by the rebels for
several days, was occupied this morning
by federal forces without firing a shot.
The rebels in the city fled toward San
Marcos, leaving a large quantity of arms,
ammunition and several field pieces in
the plaxas and streets of the city.
General Sorroco de Leon and several
other rebel officers' were captured.
General de Leon at the beginning of
the rebellion was sent with a battalion
against the rebels, but Instead ot at
tacking them he turned h!s command
over to the rebels. He will be imme
diately court martinied and shot. The
government's advices from the city of
Totonicapan report sever, fighting there
Sunday with complete triumph for the
government arms. The fighting be?nn at
11:30 o'clock in the morning and contin

In Chief Medenzlbul. in his dispatch to
Gautemala, says the defeat of the rebels
was complete. They were repulsed and
22 were taken prisoners. A quantity of
arras and. ammunition were also cap
lured. The number of dead and wounded
is not reported.
On the government side Colonel Fal
