Th run to Koutts Is about two hour i

arrived there In the neighborhood of
13 o'clock. The hall sele 'ted w is over I

liilreri by smoky oil lamps. To IhUl

through t.i seemingly bottomless In
diana mud, with n dreary, drleallng rain
railing steadily. Kvery one was warned
to be quiet for fer of disturbing th.1
sleeping rustics and arousing the loel
authorities, so the procession wound its
Micky way to the hall aa silently as
funeral train. When the loo men had
got into the hot. stuffy hall the doors
were locked nnd a keeper placed on
vnard. The local authorities had been
"seen evidently, for none of then
came to disturb the ftstlc pro-etwllngs.
S.-voral grafter did attempt to Imper
sonate officers of the law, but they were
tit rngnon lOOely kicked out Into the
rain And darkness.
"What's in a Name."
Tiie ring bad been ercted In the mid
dle of the Moor and elevated about three
feet. In Murphy corner sat Capt. Bill
Ialy and Mike raly: In Weir's sat lid
MoAvoy, Hill Richards And "Handsome
Dan" Murphy. The latter wn appointed
ofticlal timekeeper. When Weir heard
this he objected MoAvoy said:
"Dag 1 my friend and If I'm willing
to tru.t him with mv money I don't
ou have any kick coming.-'
"Hut bis nattlO Is Murphy and the man
I'm to light Is named Murphy also, and
the Murphy; always stick together," re
Don't worry about that, (io on anil
fight, you 11 get a square deal all right."
So W. lr withdrew hi objection to the
goad old Irish name. The betting was
not very hrlk. and ruch of It as was
don favored Weir.
Murphy proved to be fighter much
on the stylo of .lem Mace and Jim Kear
ney. He stood straight up and de
pended mostly on straight .labs. He had
a healthy wallop In his right mit, which
lie used with very good effect on Weir.
As usual. Ike played for his opponent's
face, particularly the eyes, but Murphy
proved himself very clever and, while
Weir cut his opponent's optic quit a
bit, the Birmingham nian was by no
mean blinded. Murphy played for
Weir's stomach, and waa very success
ful In lauding that right on th rll as
he ducked Ike's lead for the face. He
was by far the cleverest proposition
that the champion hau yet faced.
Weir's Hands Bad.
Murphy took things quite seriously.
On th otner hand, Weir, s usual,
played lot of his tricks, and for a
While had the c rowd In a gal of laugh
:er. but he wasn't very successful In
brhigtng smile to the fac of hi sturdy
little opponent. Cp to the seventh round
Weir bad the better of th fighting,
Bnd Minphy was pretty wall banged up
around th head. But the little Kn-
nn draw and that the men would light
until onn was knocked out. The bel
ting had now swung over to -Murphy.
However, Murphy had no more chance
of knocking out Wrlr than Wctr had of
putting the BlrmhiKliarii boy away to
dreamland. At times the men would
have a npurt of fast lighting for it
round, and then they won).', loaf for
four or five sessions. Whenever Weir
chose to lake the offensive he hail no
difficulty in landing when and where hn
1 it--i-c. i.Ol mrc ic.iiiuM rt-IH et.o,e
I worse, and all he could hope for was a
draw. Murphy wa Pretty Indly cut
un, and one of nil arms Waa In bad
ehape. So the affair dragged on, while
the crowd yelled for action,
Finally, about fl.30 on Sunday morn
ing. Just as the men were taking the
centre of th ring for the eightieth
round, the sheriff, nccnmpan'ed by most
of tile townsmen, arrived and ordered
the tight stopped The referee refused
to call the affair a draw, a. id announced
that the men must finish the tight a
week later. This was not done, how
ever, and eventually the purse and Ittti
receipt were divided. Both men weft
badly cut up and totally exhausted.
As usual. Weir's hands wi-re a'siut the
slse of ponges, and the glove had to
be cut from them. Baoh mn agreej
that the other was the best flgiitor he
had ever met.
Next flundav, at the plonk ami games
of th i '.iv. m Men's I', anil H. Asso
ciation, the two teams will face MCk
other again They will be on the Held
sharp at 3..m. The Wegfordl and Ar-
magna will kick mutc h at I.M, Tip-
perary will meet Clare la a hurling
match nt 6 I. Mm to be followed oy
conteata in Irian danolng; o it ihould
be a great day for Ireland.

HUMPHRIES TAKES BLACK
RUNNER UNDER HIS WING.
Joreph Humphries Jiit muTt hve
ome sort of an athlete tucked under
hi managerial Wing or else he feels en
tirely out of the sporting r ime. Until
now ,ioe lias made it a practice to
handle flffhtera only, and It will sur
prise the public to hear that he has
taken oharge of a dually professions
distance runner. The boy name la
.loe Trent, and he declare he will be j
the only "blax-k hope" to n.art against
Bill (Jueal and the bunch of cracks that
will toe the mark Iti the vpeojal hour
race to be held bv the Irish Volunteers
at Critic Park, Aug 13 However, there
seems to be some doubt aa to Whether
or not Trent's entry will be ncceptci by
lice manayeineiu of the race, anil he
may have to put off meeting the great
lineal until some time In the future.
lh m p i o ii l.arned Una l.anie Arm.
William A. learned, holder of the na
tional lawn tennis title, has a lame
rlgbl arm, and he may not bo able to
meet the winner of the tournament at
Newport. He went to Chicago to get
treated, and the doctor told him that
he mustn't use the member for some
time to come. Kven if he is all right by
the time of the tourney he won't be In
good form to play on account of lack
of practice, and It In llhely that he will
forfeit tho championship.
