Lenox Athletic Club, New York. Jan.
10.?Tom Sharkey, the American sailor,
stands to-night the only heavy weight
possibility for championship honors and
the title now held by Bob Fltzslmmons.
He whipped Kid McCoy good and hard
In the tenth round of what was to have
been a twenty round battle, and by
doing- so the Irish-American pugilist,
forged his way so positively and un?
deniably to the front rank that Fltz?
slmmons must now consider the sailor |
pugilist's claim without delay.
SHARKEY A REVELATION.
Sharkey to-night was n revelation t<>
those who saw him a couple of years
RgO. His ring work and generalship are
so vastly superior to his exhibitions
when he first came to the Bast as a
fighter that the improvement Is almost
Great bunches of muscle, with un?
limited confidence ami a. cool head, are
the Qualifications which have enabled
Sharkey to light Iiis way to the front
rank of heavy weight pugilists, and no
one, not even McCoy, who suffered de?
feat nt his hands to-night, denies tho
full measure of praise that is due to
M'COY'S FOOT WORK.
McCoy's marvelous foot work and
that long left jab. with which he has
put so many of his opponents to sleep,
nre two factors in his make up that
must always appeal to lovers of tho
fistic art. He used every artifice known
to the advanced school of pugilism In
his contest to-night and bis defeat must
not be attributed to tiny lack of close
study on his part of every trick in the
Many of his friends feel to-night that
lie ought t? have gone ~up ugainsT
smaller game than Sharkey.
SHARKEY KNOCKED DOWN TWICF.
When McCoy sent Sharkey twice to
the floor in the third round to-night no
one doubted the Kid's ability lo bit
hard, and many thought that he had
Sharkey nt his mercy. This Idea was
soon dispelled when the Irishman
begun to get to his man.
McCoy's seconds were Doo Payne,
t'ou Rellly, Frank Erne, Timekeeper
Nate Fontnn, of Buffalo. Sharkey'a
seconds were Tom O'Rourke, Tommy
Ryan, Syracuse; George Dixon and
Jack Dougherty. Timekeeper, Prof.
Jimmy DeForest. Tim Hurst was re?
feree. Sharkey's weight was 17:1 pounds,
McCoy's l.r.S pounds. MeCoy wore w hite

Both men were sparring at the gong.

the ropes and caught a light left on the
nose. Tom came to centre of the ring
and tried left and right without effect,
and again the Kid sent his left lightly
to the face. McCoy continuously kept
side-stepping and evaded Tom's at?
tempts for a lef hook or swing very
cleverly. McCoy put a light lert on
Tom's face \\*hen near the ropes on the
west end of the ring, and Sharkey sent
a hard left hook to the ribs just as
the g'">ng sounded.
Tom tried to Tore.? matters, and Mc?
Coy, at close quarters, tsent his left to
the ear and ducked away from a left
swing. Each sent lefts to the head at
close quarters with little effect, and
McCoy's foot work puzzled Tom, who
could not land until Mac stopped after
g< ttlng a left on tho breast. Tom then
sent his left t<> th^ neck and Mac Jabbed
a hard left on tho nose. This seemed
to annoy Tom, who was unused to
Blich quick font work and Mar lilt Iiis
opponent will? another quick jab on
the nose. Twice around the ring Mac
side-stepped and at each step forcing
his left jab, landing lightly. Suddenly
the Kid stood rigid nnd sent his right
to the face, repeating the blow within
two seconds so hard that Tont fell to
til. llflor, Tom jumped up like a rub?
ber ball rebounding and again he fell
to the floor. The bell found them
McCoy's font work was marvelous,
lie cut out the pace and Sharkey could
not reach him through the Kid's clever
side-stepping. Once in a while Mac
would stop and send that long left to
the body or head. Torn tried all sorts
of dodge to bring his man to him, but
the Kid side-stepped all the time and
Tom's swings fanned the air. Sharkey
rushed and tried for the body, but the
Kid side-stepped again and sent two
hard lefts to the face. These blows
stung Tom, but the hitter stuck his ton?
gue out, ns much as to say: 'Those
don't count, hit heavier."
McCoy rushed across tho ring and
the men clinched In Sharkey's corner.
Sharkey tried left and right swings,
Luit the Kid dodged cleverly. Tom tried
left and right again, but the Kid dodg?
ed away from him. Tom crossed the
ring and caught .Mac in the neutral
corner, sending- his left to tho stomach
and a right on" the car. McCoy coun?
tered heavily with his right on the
head. Tom kept rushing ineffectively,
and once he caught Mac on the ropes
and tried to land a left hook, but Mac
rebounded from the'ropes like a rub?
ber ball and Tom sent his left to the
right ribs, only landing a glancing blow,
lloth men were fresh at the end of the
Sharkey on the aggressive; Mac very
weary and using his feet to advantage
Tom caught him side stepping, lalvding
a left hook low on the body and an?
other on the ribs close to tho heart.
Mao jabbed left to tile face and body,
but faded to dodge a left hook from
Tom, which caught him on the neck
under the ear. Tom kept on the aggres?
sive and caught Mac on the ropes with?
out gaining anything. Tom caught Mac
in lite coiiiec and gave him two lefts
in the face. Mac jumped to the middle

Both blockod cleverly. Tom swung
his left for the head. Mac blocked the
blows with Iiis elbow and side stepped
out of harm's way. Two clinches fol?
lowed, in which the referee had to go
between the men to separate tlinn.
Coming together at close quarters, Mac
got his left to the wind and Mae landed
his right on tho head. Leading and
blocking cleverly on both sides was
then the order and Mae succeeded in
landing a left hook on Tom's right eye,
raising a mouse under the cheek bone.

They rushed to a clincli with nothing

head, Tom upper-cutting with left to

any injury to cither and then Tom
shouted: "I'm tired." The Kid led n
beautiful left for the bend, but Tom
twisted around, bringing his left to the
ribs- In n. rush Tom played for the
body, lauding his left seemingly low,
and Mac dropped to the floor of the
ring, where he riggled for eight seconds.
It looked as if Mac were down about
twelve seconds, but the referee's count
was only eight. He came up again

A SENSATION on PICKtiE for

Columbia, B. C, Jan. 10?The liquor
selling monopoly maintained by South
Carolina under the name of the dis?
pensary system, already attended by
grave and frequent scandals, is about
to develop <>n? more which will make
a profound sensation.
In the campaign for the Democratic
Gubernatorial nomination last summer
the incumbent, Governor William H.
Ellerbee, was a candidate for renomi
nation. He supported the dispensary
system. His chief competitor was C. C.
Featherstone, an advocate of Pro?
hibition. The rules of th?> primary re?
quire a ma jority vote to nominate, pro?
vision being made for a ?erond primary
in case of need, in the first primary
there were .? * candidates for Gov?
ernor. Governor Bllerbee received a
plurality, hut not a. majority. Mr.
Featherstone rams next. In the inter?
val before the second primary every
daily newspaper in South Carolina,
with the excention of the Columbia
;-tate. supported Featherstone and bit?
terly attacked Governor Ellerbee
There was such antagonism to the dis
pensary system and to Ellerbee per?
sonally that it was generally predicted
and believed that the vetes of ths can?
didates distanced in the first primary
could go to Featherstone on the sec?
ond and nominate him. The state
newspaper was anti-dispensary and
anti-Prohibition and has been for a
y< ar supporting a mode of settlement
t y county option between high license,
prohibition and the dispensary. On ac?
count of the absence of its editor in
Cuba it had not taken on active part
in the campaign- A few days before the

Though its offonsivo features
nro sometimes almost unbearable,
few people are awnro of the danger
of which Catarrh is tho forerun?
ner. Catarrh invariably loadB to
Consumption. Growing worse and
worse each winter, those who roly
upon the usual treatment of
sprays, washes nnd inhaling mix?
tures find that it is impossible to
check the disease with theso local
applications which only reach the
surface. The offensive discharge
increases all tho while, causing a
feolingof personal defilement, and
gots deeper and deeper until it is
only a question of a short time
until the lungs nro affected.
The importance of tho proper
treatment can therefore be readily
appreciated. But no good what?
ever can bo expected from local
applications, ns such treatment
never did cure Catarrh, and never,
"I had such a severe case of Catarrh
that I lost ray hearing in one ear, and
part of the bono in my noso sloughed
off. I was constantly treated with
sprays and washes, but each winter
the disease seemed to have a firmer
hold on me. 1 hud finally been de?

ed to his nost nnd three days before
the primary in a signed editorial came
out for Ellerbee, promising tho local
option nnd license ndvocnies that II
would bo to their Interest to support
him. The second primary resulted in a
scant majority for Ellerbee. Efforts to
draw an explanation from the State
, newspaper were unsuccessful. It asked
j its friends to awair the meeting of the
; Legislature. The Legislature convened
I to-day and Ooverr.or Eilerbee's mes
j sace ivns read. It suggested county
option between the dispensary and pro?
hibition system, but -with such onerous
conditions on counties voting for pro?
hibition as to dlseourare the adoption
! of that system. It ignored high lic

ELLERPEE'S WRITTEN PLEDGE.
In the state newspaper to-morrow
Editor Gonzales will have a signed edl
! torlal printing - pledge in writing mad*
?y Governor Ellerbee before the second
primary that lie would recommend to
the Legislature that each county be
permitted to settle the Honor question
for i:s:-lf. nnd slating that he fully
concurred In the views held and ad?
vocated by the Slate as to the best so?
lution of the liquor question. This
pledge, he declares, was the condition
he exacted for the support of Governor
Ellerbee by bis newspaper, when the
Qoveroor pledged for such support, and
has been held by him for public justifi?
cation of ids course if the Governor
should break his word. The pledge
having been violated he prints it with
the remark lhat the Governor lias
