After n long- line of lamentable lizzies,
Scranton admirers of the llstlc art last
night enjoyed a rattling good mill. It
took place at Music hall under the
auspices of the Excelsior Athletic club
und was witnessed by about three hun
dred sports, who paid a dollar apiece to
The fighters were Joe Bernstein, of
New York, and Danny McMahon, of
Philadelphia, one hundred and twenty
two pound men with national reputa
tions. Bernstein has been fighting for
three years befoie the athletic clubs in
and around Now York and was never
defeated but once and that was, It is
claimed, on a iluke. McMahon is the
best man ot his class around Philadel
phia and last Monday night won the
battle of his life by defeating Aus
tralian Billy Smith.
It was a twenty-round go.MarquIs of
Queensbury rules, with " six-ounce
gloves, for a purse of $200. Bernstein
got the decision but the crowd evi
denced that it would have been better
satisfied had it been declared a draw.
There was a preliminary three-round
bout between Toby Gardner and Paddy
Durkin, trainer of the 'Excelsiors, which
wns declared a draw, after which John
J. Dm kin, president of The club, made
the announcement that Joo McNally
had been chosen referee and James J.
Coleman, Slg Cohen and Jolin Kennedy
timekeepers. The principals then came
on with their seconds and were pho
tographed by DeWltt. "Dolly" Lyons,
the champion bantam weight of Ameri
ca, Vic Whitman, of New York and
Larry Ketrlck looke'd after Bernstein.
Hugh Kennedy, of Philadelphia and
Walter Schllchter, of the Philadelphia
Item, went into McMahon's corner.
Both men wore in the pink of condition
and were as evenly matched to all
outwnid appearances as two fighters
could possibly be.
BEGINNING OF FIGHT.
Time was called at 9.45 o'clock. The
men came u:i to the scratch with a
bound and began business directly.
THE BLOW THAT
U'ONS DJ0 SOME
Both evidently Intended to rush matters
from the beginning for theie was no
preliminary sparring and ineasuiing,
both being anxious to mix up right
away. After they had had a lively two
minutes of givo and take with four
clinches, they began to have a little
more respect for each other and played
more cautiously for some time. Bern
stein fought fiom the center of the
stage all the time, McMahon doing the
most of the leading, Bernstein confin
ing Ills leads almost entirely to right
hand upper cuts after n feint for the
head with the left. He would get Mc
Mahon In a corner and when the latter
would make a rush to get out, Bernstein
would invariably drop low and allow
McMahon to go over his back, tossing
him heavily in this fashion several
This continuous use of the shoulder
however did not seem to effect the
doughty little Phlladelphlan's wind in
the least, but once or twice after being
tVirled In the air he came up a little
dizzy and as may be believed very
much mad. Bernstein's ducking was
the feature of his fighting. He either
escaped the blow entirely and tumbled
his opponent over his shoulder or else
got In so close that the blow would
over-reach and land on his back. Mc
Mahon's forte was his punching rather
than his ducking. When he did go un
der he was content if he escaped with
a thump on the top of the head and a
clinch. He v. us however the better hit
ter of the two landing cleaner blows
oftener and better than his opponent
and leading three times to the other
Honors were even In the first and
second lounds, both men sailing in
hammer and tones fashion and each
occasionally landing a clean out swing
or cut which would have meant sleep
were they bigger men. In the third
round Bernstein got McMahon on the
run and kept him oh the defensive. In
a vicious exchange of swings in the
center of the ling, Bernstein drew first
blood from McMahon's nose.
M'MAHON WAS ANXIOUS.
From this time on Bernstein would
come up each time spry and cool while
McMahon seemed Just a little flustered
and anxious. McMahon kept on doing
the leading and trying for a knock-out
with a swing. Bernstein never hesL
tated to fight when his opponent
started the play and In almost every
exchange got In the last blow. His
favorite scheme was to slowly edge
McMahon into a corner or against the
ropes and If an opening presented Itself
send In a right-hand uppercut, or as
described before duck and use his shoul
der. He -was McMahon's superior on
In-fighting atid the latter was not
slow to recognize It for after the sixth
round he carefully avoided short arm
encounters. He also seemed to bo
stronger than McMahon as he fre
quently pushed him against the ropes
and dumped him Into a corner when
they got Into a clinch.
McMahon had the best of the sixth,
seventh and eight rounds, landing clean
and hard several times in each round
and escaping with short arm Jabs which
did not do any harm.
In the ninth round neither man had
the advantage. In the tenth Bernstein
showed a desire to bring things to a
Cjcl-f Hg "
finish nnd started Into do some leading
keeping It up for two rounds. Mc
Mahon seemed to be losing a little of
his aggressiveness and for three lounds
Bernstein forced matter. Several times
lie got McMahon's head In chancery
and tried to Jab him out, but McMahon
succeeded each time In protecting his
chin. The fourteenth round saw Mc
Mahon doing must of the dodging and
Bernstein trying full arm blows. In
the fifteenth McMnhon landed a clean
left hand swing on the right Jaw but
it did nflt do any more damage than to
make Bernstein groggy for tile remain
der of the round. From the sixteenth
to the twentieth round the men went
at each other in the most vicious man
ner, disregarding their guard In tt reck
less way and swinging, hooking nnd
upper cutting nlmost continuously.
It was any man's light when they
shook hands for the twentieth round.
THKKE VALUABLE MINUTES.
In three minutes one or the other of
them would be three hundred dollais
richer. Their work just then was
worth $100 a minute. Bernstein landed
a lucky right upper cut. This gave him
confidence and made McMahon a trllle
weak. He followed It up with short
punches. Then McMnhon rallied and
the men came together with terrific
force In the several fierce lushes. Nei
ther wnvered. Both then stntted up
per cutting and the round wound up
with a pretty straight punch from Mc
Mahon which landed on Bernstein's
Heferee McNally without any delay
declared Bernstein the winner. The
crowd was surprised, but knowing Joe
to be a good fellow and strictly honest
it did not make nny hostile demonstra
tion further than to shout "draw,"
"draw" to let McMahon know it did not
agree with the finding' of the referee.
McMahon also lost $25 of his own
money by reason of being one minute
late in wolghlng-in. The men put up
a forfeit of $50 each to be on hand
at the Excelsior club at 3.30 yesterday
afternoon to welgh-ln. Owing to rail
road delays McMuhon did not arrive
until 3.31. Bernstein demanded the
forfeit and It had .to be given him. He,
however, compromised by taking half
in consideration of the fact that It was
no fault of McMahon's that he was not

Dnngel Langowski, the publisher of a
Polish weekly, who was arrested on a
charge of criminal libel, preferred by
Rev. Bronlslaw IwanowskI and given a
hearing by Alderman Millar Thursday
afternoon, Is having some difficulty in
furnishing the lequired $1,000 bail. He
was released on Thuisday evening on
