Great Disappointment in Albany at the Result of the Fight

(Special Despatch to The Boston Globe)

ALBANY, N.Y., February 6.-Intense excitement was created here this afternoon by the Sullivan-Ryan fight. The telegraph and newspaper offices were thronged with anxious people making inquiries as to the result. Hundreds of people gathered about State street, where bulletins were posted as soon as received. The final despatch was not believed at first, but when Sullivan's victory was officially announced there was great disappointment, since an immense amount of money was staked and lost on the issue.
