THE PICTURES SHQlAf A FOUL
Verascope Indicates That Fitz
. siuimons Violated the Rules.
WHAT THE CHAMPION SAYS
He Gets Very Angry and Declares
That the Pictures Are "All Blooui
ints Fakes" The Cnllforniaii In
sists That the Pictures 31ake It
Kecessary for Fitz to 3ieet Him.
New York, May 22. That Fitzsimmons
fouled Corbett in the Nevada fight is prac
tically proven by the verascope picture of
the fight shown, here today.
Tlic most interesting detail in the pho
tographic record is the plcttue which shows
Fif.slmmons striking Corbett with his
left fist on the point or the jaw wneii the
Californiun liad sunk to the floor.
The blow, technically, was a foul, but
It wasdellvered withoutinteuttodo wrong,
to far as can be known, and it had no ma
terial effect upon the issue, llut the rea
fcon why no official notice was taken of it
was that not only the referee misled seeing
It, but so did every one of 'the other
6,000 persons present.
Up to the beventli round Corbett divided
his efforts Impartially between punch
ing and patronizing Fitzsimmons. When
the red-headed one, by cliance, struck
liliu below the belt in one or the early
rounds, Corbett smiled good-natuiedly,
like u fond teacher, contacting an error
of a pet pupil. He seemed to be sorry for
his inrerior, who couldn't help making
such a mistake; yet, as a matter of duty,
lie jolted him in the Jaw and prodded his
uoSi and banged him in the ribs until the
poor CnrniMiman ought to have felt that
his last day had come.
Bob fought back gamely, never ceasing
the grins aad winks to Ids wife, by which
he signalled that he really dida't mind tlie
grueling he got. His moral courage in
fighting away under such heavy punish
ment Is a fine example for every man in
this world who lias to fight for ids living.
Hut Corbett' s blows were fast weakening
the lanky fellow. In the fourth round he
began to be a little slow. In the liftli lie
was tiring fast. In the sixth he was in
distress. His battered nose and mouth weie
bleeding so that his front was ail smeared
with red from cheekbotre to waist. His
lower lip was so split that smiling must
have hurt sadly, yet the red-headed man
was always grinning.
At the end or the sixth round, as shown
by the verascope, Corbett all but had the
Cornisl.man out. The latter was down on
his knees, but rose before the referee count
ed eight, and from this time on Corbett per
He was no longer on tiptoe sprinting
after ins adversary. He appeared to
have worn himself out punishing Fitzslm
mous, who was now improving every min
ute and constantly tak.ig a more prominent
part in the fighting.
The fourteenth round began with no more
Interesting features than the thirteenth or
anyother sine: h sixth. It had progressed
for little more than a minute and a half
when Corbett ducked forward aad made a
long, low plunge for FitzsJmmons' abdomen.
The verascope shows that at the moment
Corbctt's fist came forward Fitzsimmons
drew In and contracted his abdominal
muscles so that the blow, if it landed at all,
did practically no harm, and at the same
time he started to side-step toward the
right. The picture also shows that Corbett
ducked unhurt under Fitzsimmons' ex
tended left fist, sentforward in an attempt
.t a counter blow.
Quicker than the motion could be fol
lowed by uny of the 5,000 pairs of eyes
foeussed on the ring, Fitzsimmons con
tinued ids side-step, thus placing himself
In a tare position defensively; and at the
bainc instant lie drew his left fist back
ward and downward and then hurled it
upward in a long, heavy, swinging upper
cut. He at the samemoment huiiedaround
oil the weight of his body, using his right
.foot as a pivot, and thus every ounce of
bis great frame was concentrated upon
driving home that awful punch.
In the verascope picture Corbett is shak
ing and tottering. Slowly, very slowly,
ho begins to pitch forward and down
ward. His left hand clutches at his
side, and his right arm hangs swing
ing helplessly In less than one-fifth of
a second the Cornlshman's Wow is carry
ing on its work of destruction.
When Corbett began to fall Fitzsimmons
made as though he would hit him wjthhis
right fist. He reconsidered this, how
ever, and swung around so as to bring his
left into range. He drew back that arm
and again swung the fist upward, throw
ing behind it all his great weight.
When that blow struck Corbett he was
technically "down." He was resting on
his left knee and right foot and right hand.
The blow Is a foul, technically, under the
Quecnsberry rules, which governed the
contest. But. the rules are so interpreted
that Intent is always considered by the
referee in deciding a foul. For example,
when Fitzsimmons hit Corbett below Uie
belt in one of the early rounds it was
plain as day that he did not Intend to
do so, and therefore he was not even
warned by the referee.
The strangest thing in the whole history
or the right is that Referee Silers, a fight
ing man or great experience, the highestin
tcgrity and excellent sight, should rail to
see the technical foul blow. He was near
est to it. His eyesight is easily excused,
however, by the fact that not one of the
thousands of spectators saw it. The vera
Bcope record cannot be denied.
If the referee had seen Fitzsimmons'
blow while Corbett was down and deoided
it a foul Corbett would still be champion of

However, I am willing to leave the matter

Martin Julian, Fitzsimmons' manager, re
ceived a telegram from New York late
last night to the effect that the Academy
of Music was packed and that the vera
scope showed Bob to have been the ag
gressor throughout the fight, knocking his
opponent all around tlie ring.
Mr. Julian said to a Times reporter last
night that the result of the exposition
yesterday is in the nature of a quietus to
the claim of some that a foul blow had
been delivered by Fitzsimmons.
VVIIAT COKBETT HAS TO SAY.
Insists Thnt Fitz Must Now Con
sent to Meet Him.
New JTork, May 22. James J. Corbett,
after being shown the reproduction from
the verascope pictures toduy, said:
"That picture means Fitzsimmons must
fight me again. He has to; there is no
getting away fiom thatuftcr thatpicture,
which does not lie, and will be seen by the
people of tills country.
"I want to tell you that I was the most
surprised man in the world when I saw that
picture on the verascope. Brady began to
talk about a foul blow tome after the fight,
butl 6aiditwasall bosh.
"I don't remember getting that punch
in the Jaw, I can tell you. The reason is
I was dazed after that body blow.
"At the same tlmelt will prove toevery
one that it is worth while having another
fight to find out which Is the better man.
I can't get that fight back, that's sure;
It's lost all right, but he must fight me
again, and then if ho whips me we will
let it go nt that and have no more talk
"If I thought I would never get another
fight with Fitzsimmons I would stick to
It and say there was no foul, and let it go
at that. But there's no denying that
photograph, is there? Fitzsimmons can't
say it doesn't tell the truth, can he?
"Now, when he hit me In the stomach
all my wind went. Everybody knows
what it is to lose his wind in that way.
Then, when all my breath is gone, I get
hit again In the Jaw, ns the picture
shows. Now, that last blow didn't help
me in getting my wind back again in
time to go on with tho fight, did it?
"It surely lost me one or two secouda.
And every one knows that I was strong
and able to fight eleven or twelve seo
onds niter that punch in the stomach.
No quo can say that if 1 had not received
that last hook on the Jaw I might not

numerous friends will never rest satis
fied, after seeing that picture, unless
Fitzsimmons agrees to fight me again.
Ana it will bring the next fight about
quickly, too, and that's what I want.
"Now," continued Corbett, "let me tell
you something you douH. know, probably.
In the bixth round, when I had Fitz going,
he clinched to save himself and I knocked
him down. What did he do but fling his
arms around my legs and hang on to me.
He clung there for three or four seconds
probably, until I cried to Referee Siler,
'George, make him let go.' But even then
I had to break away from him
"Listen. The verascope shows that Mnl
doon, who was timekeeper for Fitzsim

went to the floor And the pictures show
that lie counted off ten before Fitz got on
his feet again. What do you think or tint?

only when I pulled my legs away from

mc in the attempt to throw

"Of course, his idea was that, as he
felt ho was losing, he would throw me,

"I tell you that, although I have only
seen seven rounds of the fight In the

C. A. C. LOST THE SET.
Baltimore Catholic Club Howlers
Won the Final Gaines of Series.
It -was a merry crowd of howlers, com
posed of members of the Columbia Athletic
Club and the Washlncton Saengerbuml,
which greeted the howling team or the
Baltimore Catholic Club in the alleys of the
Saengers lat night.
The occasion was the meeting of -the C.
A. C nnd B. C. C. for the fifth time in
an intercity series of ten-pin bowling
games, and the visitors last night handily
won the full set of three games. Each team
had upon the return visits to each other
always won six games, and the Saengers'
alleys were chosen as the neutral ones upon
which to bowl off the tie. The result was,
of course, mot pleasing to the visiting
players and the large numliers of rooters
they brought with them.
The failure of the Columbias to make a
1-etter showing last night must be at
tributed to the lack of practice with the
two new men on the team. All things
considered, however, the Winged Arrow
team played a steady game, though not
strong enough for the mighty howlers
from the Monumental City. "Old Reli
able" Jal-e Jones led his team, with 179
as highest game, with 153 1-2 average.
Little Deyo led the team, with 161 aver
age. "Papa" Blake led the vi3itois, with
173 2-3 average.Lemkul coming next, with
174 1-3 The visitors' Work was of high
crass throughout, strong team play being
a feature of their work. Tlie team
Is one of the strongest that has visited
here this season.
