THE NEWS OF EUROPE


Fight Between the Forces of Buffalo Bill and Dr. Carver.

LONDON, Aug 25.—Meagre details have just been received here of a fight between the cowboy and Indian companies of Buffalo Bill and Dr. Carver in the streets of Hamburg. [1] It is understood that a fierce conflict took place, and that but for the interference of the police in force life would have been taken. Nothing else is talked of.

Dr. Carver's company is but lately away from Ruseia, where in Moscow it had great trouble with the police, when blood was shed.

For a long time there had been great rivalry between Dr. Carver and Buffalo Bill. The latter opened his show in Hamburg yesterday.
