LAMBERT IS THE VICTOR.

Crowd of Sports Witness an
Billy Lambert, 01 Iowa Cut. was
the victor in his battle with Jim Mo
Coy, of this city, last night. McCoy
was knocked ont in me second
round, 'ine mm was pulled off in a
convenient second floor room, where
some one hundred and fifty tri-city
sports assembled about a 12-foot
ring. The fight, which all seem sat
isfied was on the square, was given
tinder the auspices of the Moline
Athletic association, and was for
f200 a side. The place where the
pugilists were to meet was kept a
secret until last evening. Those
who had tickets were told to meet at
a certain place at 10:30, when they

north windows which were pulled

hung on the wall and the quicksilver
ran up against tne top and rapped
for release. The spectators sat there
and sweltered in the heat. A num.
ber had fans, but it was a hard mat
ter to stir up a breeze sufficient to
keep one form out of torture. The
crowd arrived shortly before 11
o'clock and grew restless because
the gladiators did not appear imme
diately. There were numerous at
tempts at raising a racket by stamp,
ing on the floor and shouting, but
those who realized the necessity for
keeping everything serene, said
"sh," and all was quiet. There was
warning against anyone standing
outsiue.and the master of ceremonies,
an auburn-haired fellow, 6aid that if
the sports wanted to see a go thev

being rubbed down in an adjoining
ante-room in the meantime, entered
the ring at 11:30. It was a few min
utes of midnight before a man who
would act as referee could be se
cured. The master of ceremonies
brought out a red band box and
opened it before the spectators. It
contained the gloves which the fight
era were to use.
"These are th' 4 ounce regulation
mitts," he said, "an1 if there's an
officer ia th' place he is welcome to
examine them. Now, gents, this is
to be a 10-round glove contest; so
that we keep within th1 limit of-th
law, you understand. But if neither
man is finished at th1 end of th1 10th
why th1 referee can keep on adding a
round until either is knocked out."
Then time was called and the
fighters shook hands. McCoy was
the aggressor from the start and
landed several hard punches on the
utue englishman's physiognomy

warding off a few knocks which were
aimed at bis lace and which echoed

who was down. But Lambert came
up, carrying a sort of smile, yet he

right to take children under the cur

years shall not be upon the public
street or in any public place
after 9 p. m. from March 1 to Sept.

custodian, or unless in the perform

police are empowered to arrest and
detain without warrant all children
violating the ordinance, which in

stated this morning that he would
give his official sanction to the ordi
nance, and that he would issue a
proclamation Betting forth its pro
visions and requirements, and there
after it would become the duty of
the firemen at the three houses of the
paid department to tap the bells of
their respective buildings at 9
o'clock each night to indicate that
Curfew is in force. With such an
ordinance in operation grave respon
sibilities will be imposed upon the
police, who will be called upon to ex.

cretion. Chief Pender said last night
that he recognized this and that
he proposed to instruct his men ac
cordingly. The arbitrary detention
of a child under an accidental in
fringement might work a greater
wrong tnan it is the purpose of the
law to avoid.
