On Saturday jilght In the eighth
round of what was scheduled to b.
a twenty round bout) Dick Sullivan
knocked JacR Cordell out and re
tained the middleweight champion
ship of the Hawaiian Islands. j
Cordell was. .to all Intents and
purposes, out In the seventh round,
and he had takeV tho count of eight
when tho gong1 wenj, and his coc
omls were able to drag him to his
corner to get him fl to get up (or
tho eighth nnd what! turned out to
be the last round of the contest.
The eighth round was simply a
succession ot knock downs by Sulll
Min, who. made Cordell take the
count ot nine three times and Anally
administered the coup de grace that
put the man from the coast to the
floor tor the full count of ten. I
Ot course It may hare been that In
the first and second Sulllvan-Cordell ,
contests the champion was not fully
'extended and was fighting under
I weaps, thinking that, anyway, he
could earn tha decision on points'. I
Then on Saturday night he cut

old time style andseemingly, put It.

Sullivan held Cordell too cheap on
tho two previous occasions of their
meeting' and thought he could g'et
the decision without having recourse
to his sleep-producing right.
Then' on Saturday, he took no
chances and threw In hla right where
It would do the most good.. That's
the case Jn a nutshell, and' the
writer has heard enough "Insinua
tions of a fake fight, pure and sim
ple, to sicken a man ot the game
When Cordell was first, matched to
box Sullivan, an authority on the
game told the writer that the man
from the coast had as much chance
ot defeating Sullivan aa a hack
(horse would of running- away from
However, let It go at that, and on
with the story.
The "house." although not as
large an at tho last match, was fair
ly big, and certainty was a represen
tative one. Quite a number of prom
inent men were around the ring
side, and In the boxes were to be
seen many well-known faces.
Terry vs. Sarconi,
When the preliminary between
Sarconi and Terry was started the
excitement was Intense. Sarconi,
right from the Jump, was In trouble,
and Terry got In some good right
swings that rattled the bugler a lot.
Barconl showed none of "bis usual
free atyle of boxing and alwaya rush
ed Into a clinch. Thereupon some
fierce slugging would take place un
til Jlmmle Fox, the referee, would
tear them apart.
The first round was Terry's by a
mile, but In the second both men, al
though warned by the referee, did
some dirty work, and the round was
about an even thing.
Then In the third and,, last round
the foul blows were fierce, and Fox,
after repeatedly, warning Sarconi,
very properly stopped the' contest
and awarded the fight to Terry.
Then there was a ten minute In
terval, during which Jack Doyle,
who was at his' best, did some great
stunts. The versatile Jack, would
pick out' somo prominent lawye'r;Jor
judge In the crowd and cause all
eyes to be focussed on htm, much to
the disgust of the eminent personage
who only wished to see the flgbt on
There was an air of suspense no
ticeable when Sullivan climbed
through the ropes and took his seat
In the Kwa corner. Cordell quickly
followed the champion and took the

After tho men had been Introduc
ed to the audience they and Mike
Patton, the referee, held a short con
sultation In the middle of the ring.
The usual argument about the
rules under which the contest should
be conducted took place and al
though Cordell hung out for some
time for a clean break, ft was final
ly announced that the7 men would
box "straight rules."
The decision aroused a hostile ele
ment In the house, and pandemon
ium reigned for a while. The bunch
evidently' wanted a "clean break"
However, the gong went for the
first round, nnd' the men advanced
and shoo khands.
Itlght from the start Cordell forc
ed the fighting and kept 'Sullivan
backing away from him. The crowd
was very much excited, and every

fans would yell to Mike to separate
