NEW OF NEREST FROM AND NEAR
On tIe Firing Line at Caldwell
(Special Correspondent of the Bulletin.)
Caldwell, N. J.. Aug. 15.-I have
nothing of importance .to occupy my
attention today, as 1 failed to respond
to the roll out call at 5:15 this morn
ing. being decidedly under the
weather with a severe cold and gen
eral tough feeling. Have taken
several different doses of as many
different, remedies on advice of thy
friends. Am feeling somewhat re
lieved, but still weak.
Was entered in today's match, the
r1apid-fire match at 200 yards, call
ing for 10 shots each in the kneeling
and sitting positions. However, was
)in no condition to shoot. One does
not stand mitch cllance if nc t in con
dition and you need all the best of
the breaks to even come close to the
leaders. The U. S. marine is uphold
ing his reputation as a straight
shooting asset of our defensive
forces. I look for the marines to
capture the majority of all contests
held during the matches at Caldwell.
As an illustration of how the ma
rine is trained in the use of the rifle,
I will state that the world's record
was broken last Tuesday by a ma
rine; Coi-poral Clarence P. Kennedy,
who was not considered as anything
out of the ordinary as a rifle shot.
Kennedy was not good enough to
make any marine team, but attended
the matches as an individual. He
entered the members' match, which
calls for two sighting shots and 10
shots for record at 600 yards, posi
tion prone, any rifle, any sight and
any ammunition. Kennedy began
shooting on target No. 60 about 11
a. m., under what riflemen consider
ideal conditions. He used a Spring
field rifle as issued on the grounds,
and ammunition as issued. He did
.not have the use of a telescope, field
glasses or anything whatever, com
monly used by many riflemen. This
rifleman laid down in the mud with
nothing but a rifle and ammunition
and after using what ammunition
he had, called to different persons
in the audience for more ammuni
tion. His record was 45 straight
.:'j.bullseyes, going out on his forty
This constitutes a world's record
for long runs in a recognized match.
The longest being 53 straig'ht at 600
yards, but it was not shot in a match.
The longest previous run in a match
was 24 straight. Kennedy seemed to
look lightly on his achievement, al
though he stated that his highest
previous score had been but 46 cut
of a possible 50 points at 600 yards.
There were many other excellent
scores made in the members' match.
but thPey were overshadowed by
Kennedy's exhibition. Those who1

Yesterday saw the last stage of the
Marine Corps cup match, the 1,000
yarnt stage completed after a post
ponement of half a day on account
of rain and wind. lack Derville was
the high man from Montana, with
95 at 600 yards and 90 at 1,000
yards, for a total of 185 and twenty
second place. The 1,000 yards saw
a lot of trouble in front of most of
the rifle experts. You could view
many complete scores of 22 shots
having been fired and not a hit hav
ing been registered on the target.
Also several scores of but one and
two hits on the target. It is not all
the man's fault who does such
things, but luck or chance plays no
little part in your score. If you are
fortunate in being able to get on the
firing point when conditions are fav
orable, you will more than likely do
well. Hlowever, get down in adverse
conditions and away to a poor start,
many men get worse instead of bet
ter as his score increases.

When England Feared Black Su
The dark cloud of black suprem
acy having passed over the American
prize ring, it is interesting to note
that an American negro gave Eng
land an awful fright in the very hey
dey of her boxing patronage. It war;
in 1810, and I take the facts from
an old English print.
The subject of the sketch was Tom
Molyneaux, a slave who took his
name from his owner, a wealthy
planter in Virginia. It was commono
practice to pit "niggers" against each
other for the! amusement of their
masters, and Tom showed marked
skill. Algernon -Molyneaux, the
planter's son, had hbacked the negro
in several fights, and on one occa
sion while with a gay set in Rich
tmond and under the influence of li
quor (a fluid used in the United
States prior to July 1, 1919) accept
ed a challenge involving $100,0011.
On account of the great stake young
Molyneaux offered his slave his
freedom as a prize for winning. Tom
won the fight and with it his free
dom. After about five years in New
York, during which he fought sever
al battles, the ebony one was the first
to claim the American championship.
iAs the game was then, however, al
most an exclusive English sport, and
no white Amerlcan would probably
have fought a negro, Molyneatx
made his way to England to chal
lenge Tom Cribb for the champion
ship of the world. For a man of this
despised race having sprung from
slavery, to show such pluck, though
it offends racial pride, arrests at
tention and forces respect. Of
course the idea of fighting the Eng
Slish champion seemed rather ambi
tious and the sable gladiator had to
"go get a reputation." He battered
down two worthy Englishmen, and
then came his opportunity with Toum
Cribb. The great battle was viewed
by distinguished sportsmen and aris
Imagine, if you will, this illiterate
black brute who, besides his color
and lowly origin, had the additional
handicap of an ugly face, entering
the ring to fight a white man, a very
popular white man, the recognized
premier fighter of the white race,
and doing this in a foreign land
where not a friendly eye or tongue
greeted him. indeed, it was a chal
lenge to the whole assemblage, for
everywhere he turned he saw defi
ance envisaged. To win would mean
to be mobbed and yet he dared to
try. Could human courage be more
Molyneaux enters the ring under a
pale of silence. Cribb enters with
thunderous applause, Time is called.
The gross Virginia nigger stands be
fore the English gentleman, and the
world's championship is at stake.
The betting odds are 4 to 1 on the
gentleman. A tense moment ensues
as the men eye each other, when of
a sudden Molyneaux lands a power
ful blow on the ribs, but following
a few exchanges the Britisher fells
the black, and a tremendous cheer
arises. The second round is furious.
but Cribb delivers a head blow that
lays Moly.neaux full length on the
earth. The cheering beaaars descrin
tion. As if the negro's beginllings

lie takes two blows for every one he
gives buit he holds his feet. His ugly
visIe assuimes hideous proportions,
butl his fighting spirit never wanes.
and as the rounds rotate, he knocks
his opponent to his knees time and
time again. The black man's strength
seems to mount up as the English
man's seems to recede. The ring
side grows nervous and the question
arises, "Should the black win after
all?" So it seems, for he fells Crihb
with a painful blow. Bill Richmond,
ollolyneaux' negro backer, yells,
"F'our to one on Molyneaux." For
the conclusion of the hattle 1 quote
from the English narrative: "The
moment ('ribh was lifted to his feet.,
burist forth a cry .that was almost
pathetic in its earnestness. 'Now,
Tom, now, for God's sake, don't let
the nigger beat you. Go for himi.
Tom, go for him; old England for
ever!' In the twenty-eighth round
Thomas Mlolyneaux fairly won the
fight, and the black awaited the
award of victory, his just due, in the
center of the ring. intt during the
excitement Joe \Ward rushed across
the ring to Bill Richmond, and nc
cased him of having placed two bul
lets in the black's fist. Mlolyneaux
was requested to Open his hands,
proving that nothing was there. The
ruse, however, succeeded, and gave
Cribb the opportunity to come
around. As they faced each other
again the champion dodged his man,
and by good luck succeeded in knock
ing him down. Yet nobody was
quite prepared for what was about
to happen. The cold had at last taken
serious effect upon lhe ligger. He
was seized with violent shivering,
and all at once he seemed to col
lapse. Cribb, seeing his condition,
Idashed in at his foe, knocking him
down. I1 the next round, however,
the black caught his man taround the
waist and threw him heavily, but in
doing so pitched over him, and bi'ing
ing his head in contact with one of
the stakes, he lay there upon his back
in a semi-stunned state.
When Molyneaux was set up for
the next round, he staggered, and
could hardly lift his arms. Cribh
struck him in the throat, and down
he went again, like a log of wood.
Molyneaux feebly lifted his hand and
said to his second, 'Mssa Riclhmond,
me can fight no more.' "
And so Tom Cribb was lucky
enough to remain chamulion of Eng
land; but a more unfairly fought bat
tle for the championship had never--
up to that lperiod, at any rate, hbeen
