luncheon with bis boxing partner, Thomas
Corbet, his brother, Joseph; "W. A.
Brady, and John AlcVey, a member of
Corbott's company, were standing near
tho clerk's desk at tho end of the bar as
FitzMmmous and Forrest passed in. The
Corbett party had been drinking and in
a fcpirit of braggadocio Corbett attempted
to pull Fitzfehnmous' uobo.
Tho latter backed away, but Corbett
followed up and linally Fltzsimmons re
sisted. In a moment there was a general
melee. Brady picked up a chair and at
tempted to brain Filzsimmous, aud the
latter threw hun to one bide.

game. He struck 1-ltzslininons in the mouth,
cutting his lip. I orrest came to FiUsirn

the struggling crowd.
Seeing the odds against him, Fitzsim
mous picked up a heavy water decanter
and hurled it at Brady and Joe Corbett.
The lllng bottle went wide of its mark,
and striking a heavy iron column was

As soon as thoy could recover from their

rushed at the struggling crowd of excited
pugilists aud attempted to separate them.
But it was n, hard Job and a reserve
forco of police officers were called in
aud in a few moments the men were separated.
