AFTER thti 0"Br1n battle, Kid Mc
Coy lJd off for th. summer and
la th. fall went out to Los
vng.lei and n.-t Jack (Twin) Sullivan
at Haaaird'a Pavilion on September tl
in a twemtar-rmind hmrt. McCoy
t nought Sullivan would b. ea.y j.t kn,
'nut found Jaok a hard nut 10 crack
whan h. (rot Into the ring nith him.
McCoy', .tomach had Ron. hack on
him, and aeveral yrara Of hlKh living
j .id not dono htm any good. The men
fouctit th. full twenty rounds. Mc
Coy's ring generalship and aggressive
work Moured th. decision for htm, At
though It wh the opinion of many of
th .pectators that Bulllvan waa en
titled to a draw. Certainly had McCoy
faced a better man, he would have
t: m. down to defeat. On. .tiff punch
In th. atomaoh took all th. nr. out -(
him for a little while.
Tho rly part Of .aw the Kid
down at Hot Sprlnna, Arkans.
While there he knocked out a local
PllftlUfi named Jack Crawford, In one
round, the battle taking place on Murcn

York and .tarted to be a business man
H dabbled In Wall Street, ran .af.
and hotel., tried to elevate the stag'.',
had a diamond establishment and
undertook many other venture.. On
Oct. 16, Mfftj afoOOjr endeavored to
com. back" and engaged In a six
round bout at the National Athletic
Club her. In this city with Jim Hew.
art. a youthful aiirnnt for heavy
weight honor.. The "battl." was a
harmless little comic opera affair.
Stewart waa .cared nearly out of hts
wits and McCoy was a shell c' Ml
Kid Scared Stewart.
An amusing Incident happened In th
ring Just before the IhhiI DOffOn. The
foxy Kid knew that he Would stand
no chance With Stewart at clot range,
and he wanted to "get Pt.wart'I
goat," which he did In the following
manner. When tho referee called th
men to th. center of the ring to give
them tneir inoiniroon.. ne ion me
men they must break clean. The Kid
put one of hl gloves up around Stew
art's neck and, al he forcibly Jerked
Jlm'o head toward him, brought the
other hand, with the palm open, up to
Ih. (Id. of his opponent s face, saying,
"W.ll, Mr. Keferoe, does this go?"
Stewart's Jaw dropped and he stared
at the Kid In ludicrous open-mouthed
astonishment. It Wat so funny that
th ref.re. had to turn awaty to hide
th. amlle he could not keep down.
Hut It eerved to thoroughly sear.'
Stewart and to convince him th it Mc
Coy waa still a strong and powerful
fighter, which was what the Kid
wanted. He was thoroughly buffaloed
before th. men put up their hands,
and throughout the entire light, eve y
time McCoy made a feint. POOr Stew
art almo.t doubled into a knot. Th
affair only served to consinco the lar-'e
crowd that M-'oy could not "come
b.ok." No decision WaJ given.
Aald. from a little private bout over
In Philadelphia with "Tony" Blddle. t lie
ooloty boxer, and a dull und uninter
esting alx-round bout In the Quaker
City with Jack FHtagarald, a clumsy
heavyweight, last March, the Kid stop
P.d fighting altogether. He Is now out
In California selling some kind of an
athletto hameea for which great medi
cinal propertle are claimed The Kid
still entertains th. delusion that he
can "com. back," and In a recent let
ter to a N.w York frt.nd has s'ated
that h. will try to get In shape to
tackle Jaok Johnson within another
MeCny was one of the most plctur
aojuo characters In the entire history
of th American prize ring. Books
oould lb. filled with anecdotal concern
ing Mm. In spite of the many shady
affair In which he had u hand, the
Kid waa one of the most popular light,
era of modern times A a middle
weight h. was a worthy auooaggor to
Dempaey and FltaalRlfflona, ami, like
the latter, he retired from the I ilddle-
waaght class its undefeated champion.
No more scientific, (lever fighter ever
tapped into the ring. Had MoCoy pos
aeaaed fifteen or twenty poinds more
weight he might have been the heavy
weight ohamiplon of the world.
With the .xcnptlor. of the great Fltz
aatagOam no man of hi. weight could
Ml harder Mow thau McCoy. Bait
from his linyhnnd handicapped by laeh
or weight, the Kid made eood th de
ficiency by hi. extreme cleverness, hla
anility to conserv. every energy, to
make every movement ..nr. aome pur
pose. To elude a damaging blow he
moved away not an inoh further than
was necessary. He evaded by Inohea
and fractions of lnchea where other
flxhtws evaded by feet. The Kid's auc
cess In the fighting game waa won by
specialization. Footwork, feinting, clever
Infighting, the elimination of waste mo
tion, he had everything that go, to
irke up the expert. His famou. "cork
screw punch" that brok. or badly dam
aged whatever It hit, travelled a dis
tance of only alx or eight Inches. In
order to land a blow of the aarne foroe,
other fighters' fists travelled two feet
Had IfoCoy specialized in some other
field of endeavor as he did In the
lighting game, he would undoubtedly
have won a prominent place In it. He
was a man who had the ability to
make good In almost anything. But
nothing held him long enough to bring
the sue, ese that rewards only persistent
application, Of a mechanical turn of
mind, he was an enthusiastic autnmo
blllst, and even wanted to enter one of
tho Vanderbilt Cup races. He was a
good Judge of horseflesh and owned a
stable of racers lie was a crack pistol
shot, a good fencer, a clever athlete
While he stuck to It, his diamond shop
wus a success.' His athletic school was
a paying venture until he neglected It.
To the Kid everything new glistened
and iparklad attractively.
Didn't Look Like a Fighter.
Of the many stories that are toll
about MoCoy, quite a number had their
origin in his deceptive appearance.
While the Kid was In Philadelphia he
was walking down the street one even
ing, accompanied by a fine bu.ldig.
The animal attrai ted the envy of two
"pugs," who ventured to take tdm away
from his mild-spokes. Immaculate
owner. Whereupon the Kid tied his
cog to a neighboring lamppost and
poodtly cleaned up th. pair, after wh!"h
he untied the dog and resumed his
stroll, leaving the plug-uglle. prone on
Another time, while McCoy was run
ning a cafe up on Broadway, five col
lege students, all bearing large eargnei
of liquid happiness, t ame In. The party
was quite hilarious and called loudly
for Kid McCoy, whom they had never
seen, telling the occupants of the ad
1, Inlng tables Just what would happen
I i the famous Kid. McCoy, who had
baan walking around the cafe, ap
proached the students and asked them
to keep quiet. Taking him for the head
waiter, they asked for McCoy, and were
tola that he waa not around. The up
shot of it was that one of th. students
ruohed for the Kid, and in the mlxup
that followed tho supposed head waiter
put all five boys In the land of dream.
am! had t iem taken nutsiao.
Still another time the Kid laid out
four husky life-savers down at Brighton
Urn ih who had forcibly objected to his
tricky method of getting up to tiie
ticket window of the bathing pavilion.
Tho Kid was fond of practical Jokes
and played them on friend, and
stringers alike, one evening. In his
cafe there sat a party of men, one of
whom livid out on Long Island. About
11.30 the suburbanite looked at his WatCtl
and saw t hat he had about fifteen min
utes to get over to the Thirty-fourth
street ferry. The Kid. who knew this
man slightly, offered to take lilm over
to tho ferry In his own auto. The offer
was accepted anil the two started off.
Hut McCoy turni.l up Broadway, and by
the time that the scared subtirounlte,
wall visions of a domestic tempest
awaiting Ml homecoming, had induced
the Kid to stop, the auto was up at
Klngabrtdga, To the man's angry
protests at being compelled to spend the
night In New York, McCoy said npolo
getlcally: "Why, I understood that you
lived In Vonkers. That's her. 1 waa
