for a few moments, the "coppers" scoring'
MTersl touchdowns. They chased tho Sulllvnns
est of tho ring, just as Harvey told tbo crowd
that Bplko had won.
The decision of Itcforce Iloche was received
favorably by tho crowd. Tho fight was ono of
the roughest that has taken place hero slnco the
florton law went Into effect. Both men wcro
Ibout equally guilty, although Downey started
ho troublo with somo wrestling. Sullivan,
hough not nearly so clever as bis an
tagonist In point of science, was mora power
ful In point of condition and strength, and,
therefore, gradually wore Downey out. Tho big

latter was in the act of ducking, and brought a
torrent of blood.

was very slow in the fourth round, which- was
probably duo to lack of wind, and tho crowd be
ran to chirp. Burke mixed it in tho fifth, and
came near knocking Pat's head off with vicious
swings. Scully was bleeding, too, at tho end.
The sixth round was even up, Scully showing
very little speed and Burko lumbering around
the ring like a cart horse. Both were tired in
the seventh round, and Scully received a blow
ssder his left eye. Scully cut looeo in tho
t!(hth round and had Burko going, but the lat

right-hand pile-driver on the jaw ho staggered
Pat, but thero was not enough time left to finish
Bnrke was a cyclone In tho last round and had
Bcolly groggy after a minute of terrific righting.
The ulihman was strong, though, nnd refused
to be sent down. The crowd was excited over
the bout and cheered tho verdict, which was a
draw. Both men were badly punished.
Billy Staffers of Toledo, who once knockod out
Kid McCoy in a round, met Paddy Kenton of
Boston In lbs second bout of ten rounds, at 135
Gunds. Just before tbo first round ended Fcn
a scored a clean knockdown by landing n left
hand swing on the jaw. Stcffcrs was down seven
seconds. In the second round Stcffcrs was floored
three times, but was game to tho coro and con
tinued the argument notly.
Steffers's nose and cheek wore bleeding in the
I fourth round and he was groggy w hen tlmo was
called. Kenton's left eye was split open in the
fifth round, but ho sent his opponent to the
floor three times. Steffers, however, got up
quickly In each instance and finally staggered
the Bostonian with a clip on the Jaw. In the
sixth round Fenton finished his task by whip
ting a right to tho jaw and a loft to the stomach,
which knocked 8toffers out. The time or the
round was 2 minutes and SI seconds.
Downey and Sullivan camo on at 10 o'clock

favorite at about 100 to 70. Tho conditions were

Amendments Favorable to Ilunnlng and Trot
tine Signed by Hot. Illarh.
Albany, May IT. Tho amendments to tho
8tato racing law Introduced by Assemblyman
CarllS. Durrof Commack. Suffolk county, wcro
signed by Gov. Hlack to-dny. Theso amend
ments are expected to go a long way toward re
storing pool selling nnd bookmnklng on tho
trucks, nnd are Intended to follow tho lino laid
down in tho opinions of tho Court of Appeals in
tho cases of President Lnwrcnco nnd Dookmnkcr
Sturgis of the Morris Park track.
The first amendment provide for forty days
racing on a running course, fifteen days on a
trotting course and five days on a steeplechase
course. This amendment is read by somo so as
to allow forty-llvedajtt running and stccplcchas
ingon aslnglo track, five days to bedcotcdto
steeplechase racing. Trotting races nrc brought
within tbo earns privileges under the Statolnw
as are now enjoyed by running races, nnd tho
effect will bo that viol ttlons of tho law on a
trotting track will now be subject only to the
penalties prescribed in tho State racing law, in
stead of the much more severe penalties pro
vided In the Penal Code.
The provision In tho original racing law pro
hibiting tho ottners of a running or trotting
truck from accepting compensation from any
person for tho privilege of maklngnnd record
ing bets orwngcrt Is stricken out. The elimina
tion of this prohibition was greatly desired by
tbo track owners, as it la claimed under the
new Ilurr law they ran charge persons for tho
prlvilcgo of making and recording bets, tho
same us was donn formerly, when the book
makers paid largo sums for somewhnt similar
Another nmendment provides that tho penalty
for selling pools on a trotting or running course
shnll bo tha forfeiture of thoMilucof nny pool
or Interest therein, to bo recovered in a civil
action by the person or perrons with whom tho
sale of the pool Is mndo. Under this nmend
ment it Is not bcllctod thero will lo much hin
drance to the selling of pools on the tracks, nn
the ncnnlty is minimized to an extent that will
not be felt.

Llko those who had preceded them, they struck

a Commuter I'nrrell Had Ilerrlended,
Nanoet, N. Y., Mny 17. John Fnrroll, onco
able seaman on tho United States ship Phila
delphia and now a farmhand on tho Wldomnn
placo here, has been nil over tho world nnd has
worked at over) trade from fighting to washing
dlshcfl. Until yesterday ho novcr got Into
troublo or broko tho law of tho land In which ho
was a sojourner.
On Sunday hu wnsj arrested for unlawfully
ploughing and planting nhalf aero potato patch.
Farrcll was born Itlsh, Tho Indhldual who
caused his arrest Is a Herman. As Farrcll him
self says, ho should hno known better than to
try to run a polatoo patch next door to a Dutch
man. Tha scat of the International complications
that onded In Farroll's arrest was tho Wldcinnn
placo, noar Kanuct. To one going over tho
ground In tho warm sunlight of this afternoon It
did not seem a fit placo for squabbles. Folks who
do not find it convenient to lonvo Manhattan
Island just now do not perhaps roalizo It, but
It Is spring. Tho loaves aro utl unfolded on the
trees; tho crass Is thick nnd short and soft, with
novera traco of dust; the scont of applo blos
soms Is wandering across tho roads and fields,
and tho brooks nro full of water and chucklo In
foolish Inanity undor thoroodway culverts. Two
weeks or moro has this sort of thing been going
on, and It stirred John Farrall to a dcslro to
John went to Mr. Theodora Ilrokaw, a com
muter, who has a cottago noar tho Wldoman
place, nnd asked whether he might not culllvato
Mr. Drokaw's orchard lot and thus ourn a llttlo
extra monoy. Mr. Ilrokaw consented gladly.
IIo was really glad, ho said, to havo a chanco to
return in kind ono of Fnrrcll's many favors
and acta of consideration townrd Mrs. Ilrokaw
whllo her husband was away In the city. Ono of
these fnvors was tho procuring of a hired man.
Farrell brought Hern llernhnrdt to Mrs. Ilrokaw,
who hired him with tbo understanding that ho
should work during tho Inst week In April for
his board, on trial, and during May for wages.
, llernhnrdt was not fully Hnttsfnctury. Ho didn't
llko his duties, tho nature ot which may bo In
ferred from tho fact that It is slid of
him thnt "ho brnko a great ileal of crockery."
Another derogatory habit of Ilernhnrdt's was to
drop bis work nnd go to tho house of ono Joseph
Fink, a Oirmui tenant of tho llrnkuws, nnd
there converse with his countryman In tho
speech of the Vnterland. llernhnrdt was tin
duly prompt, it wns discovered by Farrcll,
In observing tho noon hour. Farrcll reported to
Mrs. Ilrokaw that Hcrnbordt spent half nn ho-ir
beforo noon waiting for thu hell to ring
nnd nn hour nfier 1 o'clock In decid
ing how to go to work. On Fnrrcll's
suggestion llernhnrdt wus not continued
In the employment of the Ilrokaw s after M.ty 1.
Thero wns n dispute over Ills wnge, whkb Mr.
Ilrokaw settled on terms which Farrcll insisted
wcro " tocilllx'ral fornny Srhueltrorknsp Dutch,
man." All this embittered llernhnrdt nnd his
lomp.itrlot. Fink, against the oung Irishman.
They sworo vengeance lu complicated Oerm.in.
There wns no collision until ycstvnl ty.
Farroll's only importunity to avail himself of
ciiltlutiug the Ilrokaw orchard lot is tin Sun
dnjsund nt odd momenta during the week. I In
took a horse and plough to tho orchard on Sun
dnj morning nt a Utile after 7 o'clock. Mrs.
Ilrokaw saw him nnd tame tn the doorway to ex
press her displeasure nt seeing him working nn
1 .Sunday. She had no right to stop him, she stld,
bill sho felt It hcrduty tnspcnk to him. F.irrcll's

drlUcrlnir a rambling oration frnm the stnno

llttlo brown house In which Pink lived. Fink
c-nme nut Inncrenl state of Indignation.
"Here, ou !" ho cried; "here, Jim. Mnp those)
workln's on Sunday. I warn )uii now, right
away, to stop."
"Mint jour face, jou Dill' hman," responded
Farrcll irayly. " I don't ncd n license from 3 011
to work or to quit working. '
Finkillsnppc.ired. Aftcrdmner Farrcll brought
two barrels nt potatoes tp the orchard and bcimn
planting the tn. Ho was well alon in Hie work
when (Ills Schneider, thu Niuiuct ctmstablc,
came nut of the woesls tnwnrd him.
"Say, Jack," he said, "I'vo i-omo to arrest
" Yo're jokln', "snid Farrcll. And then, h
there wns n great outburst of ercllcnient and
