STATE MILITIA FAILS TO STOP THE
M'FARLAND-HERMAN BOXING BOUT
Captain Kulpof Company B May
be Court Martialed for Re

DECISIONS WERE TABOOED
Packey Showed Class by Having It on
Opponent All Way and Almost
Knocking Him Out.
Des Moines, Iowa, Nov. 22. Because
they refused to obey oroers issued by
Governor Cummins to stop the prize
fight in Davenport last night, Captain
Kulp and Lieutenants Mason and Ev
ans will be arrested today at the in
stance of Adjutant General Thrift. Cap
tain Kulp wired the law had not been
violated, but the executive holds he
had no right to interpret the nature
of the bout.
That Packy McFarland is qualified
to travel with class A boxers In the
lightweight division was demonstrated
last evening to the satisfaction of all
who witnessed the 15-round contest

Mr W t-t i V
with Kid Herman at the Davenport
Coliseum. Although there was no de
cision given, it was his fight clearly.
In but two or three rounds did the
Ghetto lad hold his own, and for the
remainder of the distance he was out
classed. For the last four rounds he
was compelled to stall desperately to
last till the bell sounded. Only a de
gree of gameness seldom exhibited in
the ring or anywhere ,else, and a won
derful capacity to absorb punishment,
prevented his being counted out at al
most any stage from the 11th round on.
McFarland was the aggressor from
the start, even though anxious and
even nervous for several sessions. He
carried the fight to his man from cor
ner to corner of the ring, and Herman
put in the greater part of the time get
ting away and holding on. After he
was floored and took the count in the
only knockdown of the bout and of the
evening, which occurred in the 11th
round, Herman never landed an effec
tive blow. lie made almost no attempt
to fight, although his cleverness in
ducking and covering up was not lost
at any stage in the proceedings. For
the first half of the bout Herman was
practically invulnerable. He had a
trick of ducking under Fackey's left
and coining up with a jolt that kept
his opponent, worried for a time. Mc
Farland tried every plan he could think
of to break through scientifically with
out resorting to desperate milling,
which he seemed to fear would wear
him out in case it did not get 'results.
Thrown Away Sctcnrr.
It was not, however, till Packey
threw science away and went at his
adversary hammer and tongs that he
was able to straighten the latter up
and push in blows that counted. When
Packey made this discovery ho was
too tired to follow up his advantage
effectively, though he still had steam
enough to give the Kid one of the
worst beatings a man ever got with
out going down for the limit.
That no decision was rendered was
due to the action of Governor Cum
mins, who called out tne Davenport
company of state militia and ordered
the exhibition stopped, stating he was
convinced that it was to be a prize
right, not a boxing contest such as Is
sanctioned under the laws of Iowa.
Soldiers in uniform were lined up
in the hall. Captain Kulp of
Company P. was at the ringside, and
with the restrictions that were thrown
around the evening's program, made
no attempt to interfere. It was an
nounced before the first contest began
that there would be no prize fights,
and anyone who had come with the ex
pectation of seeing such a contest was
requested to get his money back and
leave. Nobody went. Each of the
three contests was specifically an
nounced in advance as a "friendly box
ing" affair, and the semi-windup un
questionably was such. The others
bore a tinge ' of malice 'at certain
stages. Before the principal bout all
bets were officially declared off. No
challenges were read at tbe ringside,
and other formalities that usually at
tend such entertainments where they
savored of the grim reality.
Delayed lit the Door.
One of the most unsatisfactory feat
ures of the evening was the delay in
opening the doors. It was not till
8:30, and after thousands had stood
out in the cold an hour or more, that
the doors were finally swung, and then
the jam to enter was terrific.t It took
two hours for the crowd to get in. It
is estimated that there were 6,000 men
in the building. Hundreds left wiicn

that sat eating peanuts and marshmal-
lows and chewing gum during the con
tests. Today it was rumored that Captain
O. W. Kulp of Company B would be
court martialed for his failure to obey
orders of the adjutant general and ab
solutely prevent all contests. It was
stated positively that no terms of. any
sort were 'made with the governor,
whose directions were that no fights
should take place either in the Daven
port Coliseum or anywhere else in
Up to late this afternoon Captain
Kulp had received no word from his
superior officers at Des Moines. He
stated that he felt he had done his
duty in forcing the promoters of the
boxing tournament to conform to the
laws' of the state in conducting the
program and if accused formally will
defend himself on that ground. In
case a court martial is ordered the
first step will be for the adjutant to
order the second officer of Company
B to place tho captain under arrest,
but this had not been done at last re
ports this afternoon.
The first preliminary was between
Young McGovernof Chicago and Young
Giese of Davenport. Both boys rough
ed it and Giese had rather the better
of the argument, though neither scored
a knockdown. The semi-windup was
to have been a 10-round affair between
Bix Mackay of Cleveland and Young
Wolgast of Milwaukee. It was cut to
six rounds and was a fiasco, Wolgast
showing up the better on points.
Story of Fight by Rounds.
The story of the main fight by
First Hound Herman stepped in,
landing a left to the body. Packey re
turned with a right and left, crowding
Herman into a coi ner. He landed right

Fourteenth Round The Kid rushed
into Packey's embrace and hung on
grimly. Packey got to the- jaw hard
in the clinch, shaking the Ghetto boy
uesperately. Packey fought as hard
to get loose as he did to punish his
man. Suddenly he got a fair shot that
sent the Kid reeling along the ropes
The exhibition was pitiable at this
stage, Herman simply being nothing
but a chopping block. He could scarce
ly hold his arms up and when the
bell rang he fell into his chair, spit
ting blood. Only his extreme game
ness saved liim
Fifteenth Round The Kid was sur
prisingly fresh for a moment, but the
first rally sent him to pieces again
and he started to grope Tor a hold,
amid cries of "Hold on!" and "Stick,
Kid, stick." Packey was tired, too,
but that fierce fighting spirit was .ever
there. Gradually Herman,,vwith de
spair written all over him, dropped
away and at the , end was all but
knocked out. ,
