tho round Maher had tho better of It
He led often and forced the fighting.
In his eagerness to get at Fitzsimmons
he committed a palpable foul during a
clinch, and was warned by Referee
Siler that its repetition would cost
him the fight Maher fought well, but
he was no match for his red-headed
opponent, who proved himself ono of
the craftiest men that sver stepped in
the ring. Fitzsimmons is now, by Cor

3:30. The battleground was a sandy fiat
upon a big ucnu in tne wo uranue
river on the Mexican side. It was just
two miles from the
'village of Langtry.
In tho center of a
canvas wall, about
200 feet in diameter,
tho ring was
pitched. 'I he board
fioor was covered
with canvas, over peter mahek.
which rosin was sprinkled. At ono
side was tho frame compartment for
the taking by the kinetoscopo of the
pictures of tho fight as It proceeded.
On tho opposite side of tho ring wero
two little tents for the principals.
Little time was lost in getting ready.
Fitzsimmons went to his corner and
doffed tho bath robe. Julian and
Evcrhart removed Fitzsimmons' re
maining raiment and the Australian
stood forth in short thigh trunks of
dark blue, with a bolt showing the
American colors. Ho had on black
hose rolled down upon the top of his
ring shoes. When a similar office
had been performed for Mahcr ho
showed up in black trunks, half way
to the knees with a green belt. His
hose and shoes wero similar to those
"Shako hands," Referee Miller said.
The men advanced, Fitzsimmons with
the air of confidence still showing
plainly; Maher promptly, and with
more of a familiar air than he had yet
shown. They rotired to their corners.
In an instant tho whistle of warning
sounded, five seconds later the call of
"Time" followed. Up sprang Fitzsim
mons, advancing with his little eyes
flashing like balls of burnished blue.
Maher's advance was rapidly enough
to meet Fitzsimmons almost in the
middle of the 24-foot ring. His eyes
were circled from tho recent attack of
"alkali eye," and seemed staring liko
a stage inakc-up without the deceptive
footlight glare. Tho big fight for the
heavyweight championship of tho
world was at last a reality.
Fits led with his first; Maher backed
toward his corner. Fitz landed with
his right and a clinch followed. Mahcr
struck Fitz with his right hand whilo
thoy where clinched and Referee Siler
warned him that if he did so again he
would give the fight to Fitz. After a
breakaway Peter landed his left on
FItz's neck. Close infighting followed
and Mahcr succeeded in landing his
left on Fitz's upper lip, drawing blood.
Fitz landed with left and right A
clinch followed. Mahcr feinted and
Fitz led with his right, but fell short
A mix-up followed, in which Maher
landed both right and left on
either side of Fitz's head. Maher led
with his left and another clinch fol
lowed. Fitzsimmons seemed a bit
bothered and broke ground on Maher's
lead. Maher followed him up and led
with his left, when Fitzsimmons side
stopped, and swinging his right, landed
full on tho point of Maher's left chin.
Maher measured his length on tho
floor, his head striking tho canvas with
great force. Ho tried to rise, but could
not do more than raise his head.
Ills second called to him to get up,
but he failed to respond and sank back
to tho canvas and Fitzsimmons was
announced the victor after the minute
and 35 seconds of rather lively fight
ing. Fitzsimmons' admirers cheered
him to the echo nnd Maher's seconds
carried the defeated Irishman to his
corner. It was several minutes before
he realized what had happened and
Fitzsimmons walked over to his corner
and shook him by tho hand. Fitzsim
mons also shook hands with Quinn and
tho seconds in Peter's corner. Rarring
tho Blight bleeding at tho nose occa

toon filled tho entire house and caused

ONE IS ENOUGH.
Minister Terrell Says the Tnrklsh (Jnvern
ment Would Nut Allow a Multiplicity of
Armenian Keller Agents.
Washington, Feb. 21. A cablegram
received by Secretary Olney from Min
ister Terrell says that the American
public should be given to understand
that a multiplicity of agents to dis
tribute relief in Turkey can under ex
isting circumstances produce nothing
but discord and can be given no assur
ance of being admitted. Miss Barton,
who possesses the confidence of tbe Tur
kish government, with her agents now
in the interior will be sufficient, says
the minister, to distribute all charity.
It is quite unlikely, Mr. Terrell adds,
that naturalized citizens or newspaper
correspondents would be admitted.
