examined for the defenso the last
thing yesterday afternoon, but their
testimony was not relevent. Neither

lay in the street. Stone had simply
passed by about the time of the- af
fair. John Twomey and M. J
Brown had also been summoned by

For the prosecution, Thomas Mar

a Main street saloon a few nlg'jts i'go,
and there discussed the details of the
match, finally agreeing on a side bet
of $ 100 and a division of the gate re
ceipts. When it was suggested that the
number of rounds be limited, both
fighters said that it would suit them
better to have the contest go to a
finish, and without delay an agree
ment to that effect was made.
The side bet of $100 Is now posted
and in the hands of the stakeholder.
Sevral other bets are said to have
been made with Strinker the favorite
