Itcldy, tho blacksmith, won, Kennedy
not coming to tlmo for the seventh
round. Tho start for tho fighting
ground was mado fiom Ileagan's boat
house, near tho Long Bridge,
about 5 o'clock. Tho llttlo steamer
Cccllc carried such snorts as had
tlckcls-.i tho principals, seconds and
stake-holders. A hundred and twenty
people cot on tho boat at Ileagan's.
Then when all was ready, tho skipper
of the llttlo craft, which has carried
more prizo-fight parties than any other
on" the river, started to go down tho
river. Hut ho didn't go, becausa tho
Cccllo was stuck fast on tho bottom,
: hard aground. For ten minutes sho
puffed nnd roared, but didn't budge.

Cvfntnodoro refused to help things
niong y towing iuo prize-tigiitcrs' boat
off. Somo of tho sports had to disem
bark to lighten tho boat, nnd when sho
got off they wcro taken on again at
nnothcr wharf where tho water
was deeper. Tho boat was crowd
ed, and a fow sports refused
to go on her and chartered
n tug-boat for s50 to tako them to tho
fight. Tho sun was going down behind
tho heavy clouds when tlio Cccllo got
well under way. Tho nollco boat fol.
lowed her ns far as tho District lines to
seo that uo landing was mado In tho
District. Nobody know where tha flirht
was to be. Dcforc a half hour a heavy
rain began to fall. Tho Cccllo landed
at l'ort Washington and overvbodv
thought tho fight would bo in tho
abandoned barracks whero tho Dully
McMillan mill was. Tho principals
nnd seconds got ashore, and llcldy's
second fduud n placo up tho ltlllrolT tho
Government reservation, whero a ring
could ho pitched. Then the skipper
said that It was Illegal for him to land
Ihem, nnd refused to mako tho landing.
Ho said If they started n fight
ho would leavo nnd let tho fnnnv
walk back. This settled it. and ovcrv-
body re-embarked. Acres! tho ilvor
was Collingwood Beach. Tho Cccllo
Steamed for that. By this tlmo tho lug,
with a dozen or so of thojo who fulled
to get on tho Cecllc.cnmo up, It waited
out In tho stream whllo tho Cocllo
mado toward tho pier nt Collingwood
Beach. As sho scared tho wliarf a
couplo of men could bo seen coining
out towaid tho end. Ono had a blue
uniform nnd a deputy sheriff's badge.
Ho was tho watchman employed to
look after tho excursion grounds. As
tho boat camo within shouting dlstanca
lie waved his hand majestically and
said, "Don't you land hore." Ho was
n blginan and woro n full black beard,
Coining down tho wharf behind him
was a countryman with n shotgun.
Somebody on tho uppor deck of tho
boat held up flvo fingers. Tho whisk
ered watchman shook his head. Tho
sport held up ton flugers. Tho black
whisker wagged back and forth again
v,,il DlmiPlir n.i.t Inoo nnell I .! rPI.
J tho man on tho boat held up nil
las lingers nnd shut and oponcd
them Ouco, meaning 20. Tho
watchman knew that If ho did let
tho crowd ashore ho would never get
tho $20, nnd still shook his head.
It Is tho law that a boat may forfeit Its
license if It makes n landing when told
not to by tho pcoplo In chnrgo of tho
landing. Besides, a couplo mora men,
each with a shot-gun, had joined tho
man with tho whiskers. An old negro
nnan nulled un her skirls and scur-
lied through tho grass over tho top of
tlio hill to call moro countrymen with
slot-guns If thoy should bo needed to
repel tho Invaders. Tho -010110 turned
around ami Mcamcd out Into tho river,
nnd tho crowd jeered- tho watchman.
They sang "Johnny, Oct Your Gun,"
and promised to ruin his whhkcrs tho
'next tlmo ho camo up In town. Onu
6i)0i t offered to givo him tho pilcoof a
shavp If ho would let tho party
land. "All wo wants Is (o get
a drink," ho added. But tho watch-
.man guessed tho real errand nnd re
fused to nllow tlio boat to land. Then
tho Cccllo steamed down river and
across to tho other sldo and lauded at
itlvcr View, Tho tones nnd stakos
wcro unloaded and tho pcoplo who hail
been saying that thcro would bo no
fight changed their minds. It was

cSiough for a ilug and then tho
ling was pitched. Tho giound was s)
:. slippery that tho men had dllllcutty In
keening their fcot. Kennedy was lint
In tlio ling. Ho weighed 103 pounds
and was In poor condition. George
Nortluldgo seconded him. Uo
seemed confident as ho sat In his cor
ner. "Where's tho other fellow?
"Whole's my fi lends?" ho said sarcasti
cally. It was ten minutes boforo Itcldy
stepped over tho ropes with McMillan,
his second. Then thcro wero n fow

wcro shouted, and finally McMillan,

stepped Into tho ring nud rcfcrccd. As

nnd but fow blow3 wero, struck, though
thoso that wcro, wcro smashing onos for

most sclcnco and tho way ho dodged
and countered and got away
won hlin lots of ndmlrcrs, thouili
ho had scarcely any friends In tho
crowd- Tho gloves wcro sklu-tlirht
kids, Kennedy's tan-colorcd and Kcldy's
ilnik brown. Kcldy struck tlio first
blow, a light lcft-hnndcr on Kennedy's
breast, and tho Philadelphia boy clov
crly dodged tho blacksmith's right and
landed on his check, following It with
another good ono on his stomach. Then
they clinched and after thoy wero sep
arated and squared awnjr nt each other
Kennedy landed on Kcldy's neck and
Kcldy clinched. Tlmo. Kennedy had
tho test of tho round nnd showed great
cleverness In placing his blows. In tho
second round Kcldy was on t'ao
defensive. Ho dodged a blow
nnd landed heavily on tho Phila
delphia boys stomach, and from
this on tho light loooked ns If It must
go to Kcldy. Lnlcr In tho round ho
got In his favorite blow, a swinging,
ciushtng right-hander, on Kennedy's
stomach. This round was tho prctliest
of ilia mill and tho crowd was In mi
uproar. Nearly everybody howled
"foul" becauso Kcldy struck Kennedy
whllo they wcro clinched, not knowing
that fighting could bo continued till tho
lefcreo put his hands on tho men.
Kcldy opened tho round with a blow on
Kennedy's stomnch, nnd Joo countered
heavily on Kcldy's face, they clinched.
Again tho crowd yelled "foul," and
whllo the men woro waiting for tlio rot
crco to decide Kennedy waived tho
claim and the fight proceeded. Kcldy
got In n crushing blow on Kennedy's
breast, tho hardest blow of tho fight.
It-fiilrly lifted Joo oft his feet, hut ho
rushed back for Mlko ami they
clinched. Kennedy hrtidcd n heavy
blow on Kcldy's neck, breaking tho
skin, and was awarded first blood.
Then followed rapid In-fighting nnd tho
round ended with tho men clluched.
Tho fourth round was lively. Mlko
landed on Kennedy's body and
again on his breast. Kennedy
got hack on Kcldy's body
uim liiey lliuuiicu. . illlS SOU 01
fighting was continued, Kcldy getting
a little tho best of It, till tho eiufof thu
round. In tho fifth round Kcldy landed
n heavy ono on Kcencdy's neck and
another on his Jaw nnd this ."r.izzled"
tho strawjer. Ho was still careful, but
wns seen to bo weakening. At tho end
of tho louud Kcldy was knocking his
lighter opponent about tho ring and
they overfought tho tlueo mlnutC3 by
nbout a minute. Kennedy was Iwlly
punished, nnd tho men wcro finally
separated In the midst of deafening
uproar. Kcldy seemed llko n mad
bull, and chased tho stranger
to tho ropes with a ton Iflo shower of
blows. It was two minutes boforo tho
men wcro back in tho ring. When tho
sixth lound wns called It was so dark
hardly anything could ho seen. Tho
whlto bodies nnd arms of tin men
seemed to bo dodging nbout In tho ntr
lko somo wlehl soit of butterflies,
their black fighting tights being In
Uslblc. Koldy pounded Kennedy ter
ribly, knocking him nbout, though tho
Philadelphia!! stuck plucklly at It and
got In four or flvo blows on Reldy's
Finally Rcldy landed a heavy blow
In his ribs nnd fio slipped nnd fell In a
sitting postureon tho soggy turf. "Whllo
down Kcldy hit him heavily below tho
loft ear, and tho crowd yelled "foul," 09
did nlso Kennedy's second. Tho uproar
was greater than it seemed posslblo for
so small a crowd to make. Kennedy
was helped back to his corner, and
stripped off his gloves nnd to33od
them out Into tlio ccntro of tho
ling. Ho did not come to tlmo
nt tlio expiration of a mliiuto and tho
fight was awarded to Koldy. Tho ref
eree said that ho didn't seo Kcldy strike

durlug tho past month. No sooner did
I have them cleaned nnd In ohapo from
tho great freshet than they wcro again

ona Is lesponslhlo. I cannot afford to

I am sure that I havo very good grounds
for doing so. No ono lias suffero.l

Somcthlue: must ho tho matter with tho
sewers that drain this part of tho city.
Tho water seems to How toward tho
houso Instead of tho river, and tho
sowers arc cither filled up or aro Inade
quate to carry off the water. My losses
by tho Hooding of tho kitchen will
amount to $200 or $300, and I nm tired
of paying for this sort of thing."

must bo half filled with debris, It Is
almost useless for tho purpose, and I

that this Is tho case." Nearly overy
