THE rRQQR TBISPrP ATTGUB . TUESDAY JULY 9, IB39.
THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
Tuesday, Jcly 0. 1883.
For State' Attorney,
BtJGENK LEWIS, of Moline.
"What's the matter with Sullivan T"
Boston, the hub of culture, was no
doubt painted red last night over the
news of Sullivan's victory.
Democrats can have no excuse for not
voting for Lewis, and he is entitled to
every democratic vole in the county.
Sturgeon is said to be approaching
democrats of this city and soliciting their
votes on the ground that this is not a po
litical campaign, hut that its simply a
contest between Rock ImIhoiI and Moline,
This is not true. It is a fit'ht liHwcen
Lewis and Sturgeon, ilh the chnurrs In
the former's favor.
Boss Wells is getting "narvous." and
as usual when in an excited state, rushes
into print. He sees evidrnre of Stur
geon's probable defeat, and he exhorts all
republicans to stand by the nominee.
But will the republicans as a party follow
the Ross' behest? Not by a good deal if
half what they say is true.
Notwithstanding the repeated ami
emphatic statements of the governor of
Mississippi and the executives of adja
cent southern states that the Sullivan
Eilrain flsht would not be tolerated with
in the territory over which they waved
the wand of authority, the mill came off
according to programme. In fact there
was no attempted interruption by the
authorities outside of the appearance of
the sheriff of the county where the fight
occurred, with a command that the pugil
lata should not break the peace of the
state of Mississippi. Shortly after this
official's disappearance the slugging com'
menced and seventy-five rounds were re
corded as the sum total of the fight, with
Sullivan the victorious combatant.
Carthage Republican: The demo
cratic club of Keokuk not only maintains
its active organization with regular meet
ings, but is proposing to build a commo
dious hall for its use. If the democracy
everywhere- would imitate this example
in the matter of keeping up an active or
ganization, the party would be in much
better shape for effective work in the
general campaign. Illinois will have
such a campaign next year one involv
ing the election of a United States sena
tor and in which from present indica
tions the democracy have every assur
ance of success. Spasmodic organize
tions merely for campaign purposes have
little permanent value. They should be
kept up, with at leant semi-monthly
meeting and a full attendance, if any de
cided success is to be achieved.
According to the official proceedings
of the board of supervisors yesterday,
Superintendent Murphy, of Coal Valley,
made a motion that the Argus be in
cluded in the list of official county pa
pers compensation per annum.
The motion was voted down. The ac
tion of Mr. Murphy was unexpected by
the Argus, but none the loss appre
ciated. When the question of printing
was disposed of at the firt meeting of
the present board, Mr. Murphy voted
with the majority against the Ar
gus, but probably since then be
has realized tht the board did
an injustice to the democratic
voted" "imtUihSJ T n'1 ,ne board j
Murphy's motion, the Arols wonld'noi
have accepted the work at that figure, so
its failure to pass was the best thipg that
could have occurred. The supeivisors
have made a mess of the publication of
their proceedings already, and they had
better not aeitate the matter any further.

crowd-; that hung around and there appeared
to be more polo about after th train left

guards which had ben prepared with so
much elalminiion by the management came
to naught. Tiiose who bid tickets, it is true,
got in, but the)- needed strength and courage
besides and these, in no small meiisure, and a
mull with pluck, strength and gall was
roally tietter .-quipped than a man who had
only a tu-k.-t.
The Trip To Kii-hbnr.
The ride was a rough one, the cars being
poor nnd the road dusty and dirty. There
was considerable disorder, but no violence.
A company o' militia stood at the state line,
JOUM U SLIOJVA.il.
but the trains dashed by them, and shouts of
triumph were wafted back at the soldiers.
When the trains stopped at the station' a
rush was made for the ring half a mile
away. The flbt took place at Richburg,
which is ninety-two miles from Meridian
and U)3 miles from New Orleans. So perfect
were the arrangements that there was abso
lutely no fear of military interference. Rich
burg is virtually owned by Mr. Rich, and
the place covers an area of 10,0w0 acres, ex
tending over three counties of Mississippi.
Air. Kicn is the owner of an extensive saw
mill, and this place was picked out simply
because of the bars it offered to suspicion.
The Location or the Ring.
Sunday night after dark a body of lttO
men went to work by the aid of bonfires to
perfect the battleground, which was on the
sawdust of the mill, and seats for 1,.00 peo
ple were hastily constructed!.
The owner of the propertv had made
splendid arrangements for the pugilists, and
room on the property was provided for Kil
rain. (Jimrtere wore also fitted up for Sulli
van and his party. In these apartments the
fighters speut the last night before the tight.
The ring was pitched ami everything in
readiness for the ft.bt to take place at $
Selecting m Keferre.
Iong before the liht commenced every
seat and every spot available for a view of
tbe tight was occupied, a crowd of country
people who had come in wagons surrounding
tbe ntiUlde ring, and tbe trees lie inn full of
small boys. When the principals and sec
onds appeared there was a cheer, and the
quration of a referee was taken up. Tbe
iUivn party seemed to have set their
and refused to lmve the "feuitNew Orlitans,
and Kenrick. Mitchell's choi.-e, to a toss ar
to let both m.'ii act, and finally Mitchell said
Fitzpatrick would do. The latter at the out
set acknowledged that be knew but little
about the rules, but promise! to act fairly.
Appearance of the Men.
After tbe men had each put up 1 1,000 to
win, the stripping was completed, and Sulli
van's superiority in the matter of size and
muscular development was at once com
mented upon. As the sun was clouded when
the fight lgan, there was no advantage to
either men in reepect of position. Both the
men wore pine-pitch plasters. Sullivan
wore green knee Itreeches and white socks.
The American ft ig was wound around his
waist when he entered the ring before strip
ping. Kilraiu wore black tights and
blue sock. Kilrain's conditiou was
tbe siihj.-ct of universal and
surprised comment from the start. He was
sallow and uu-diorn and looked tired an I
nervous. His chest was narrow and his
whole physique compared badly with Sulli
vim's. It is asserted thut he weighed 105
and Sullivan pounds, but there seemed
to be at leaot twenty -five minis difference
between them. Kilraiu looked serious, not
to say apprehensive, as he entered the rine.
He seemed fully a ware of the task before
him. He was loudly cheered by the crowd,
out the enthusiasm was greater when Sulli
van, a moment later, stepiied over the ropes.
Tbe big fellow looked confident and com
DECRIPTION OF THE FIGHT.
Jake's Performance Itoesn't Ilelie Ills Ap-
Tbe men faced eacb other at 10:10 a. m.
and Kiiruiu opened the fl,'lit with a pass at
tsullivan with his right, taking effect on the
neck; a clinch closed the round, iu which
Juke was on top at the full. The second
round consisted in a feint of Sullivan and
another clinch, Sullivan throwing Kilrain
heavily. Juke did tbe rushing in the third
round, trying to clinch again, but Sullivan
wouldn't have it, avoided the rush and
punched Kilrain rapidly on the neck, Kil
rain returning the compliment with two
blows below the belt for which a foul was
claimed, but not allowed.
In the fourth round both men were pant
in? heavily and thore were load cries of
"Sullivan is licked." Before it ended Sulli
van made tbe first of bis famous rushes,
driving Kilrain to the ropes. Kilraiu recov
ered and succeeded in getting John's head in
cuancery. M bile in this position Sullivan
gave Kilrain a g.xxi blow in tbe nose and
ooth went to the ground, Sullivan on top.
Many of the rounds following wen merely
walk-arounds, with a clinch in which Jake
went down to avoid punishment The rounds
of which no mention is made in tho following
lines were of this character, and the reader
will please understand that they were not
First lllood and Knock-Down.
In the sixth round Kilrain drew first
blood by a blow on tbe oar, and then Sulli
van went at him riirht and left trilri -
treated, but Sullivan followed him nr. ...h
gave him a right-bander in tbe neck fol
lowed by his left in the stomach. John L.
came up bleeding upon tbe seventh o,.r.H
and also evidently bent on getting even for
that claret. He went at hia onnnnent k. m.

well directed bljw on the face, seat him to

progress of Ae ninth round Hwding sGouted
'foOO even on Kilrain." "Taken, " responded
Sullivan, as he handed out the money in crisp
1 10 bills. .
Disastrous Work for KlTrain.
The tenth round was a disastrous one for
Kilrain. 6 alii van delivered heavy blows on
Jake's chest, neck, ribs and nose, and finally
lint him to earth again. In the thirteenth
round Sulli an beat Kilrain all around the
ring and finally with a heavy blow felled
him like an ox. At tbe opening of the nine
teenth roucd the referee demanded that Kil
rain wash 1 is hands, as he believed be had
rosin on them. Donovan protested, but Kil
In the twenty-fourth round Kilrain suc
ceeded in giving Sullivan several powerful
nreast Diov s, but before the round ended be
received in return one in the neck which
floored bit:, and for a moment he was
thought to be senseless.
Th Crowd Derides Jacob.
Twenty- ighth round Kilrain came up
smiling to the scratch. "Easy little fellow,"
be remarked to Sullivan as tbe latter gave
him a ktiiif w in the right cheek and an
equally st-ong delivery in the left rilw.
Several mi re blows were exchanged and Kil
rain bad tj drop again. The same story
was now repeated round after round, tbe
excited crowd yelling derisively and suggest
ing that Joke ought to fight only a woman.
It was app irent that Kilrain was determined
to be game so long as be could keep on his
lees, but the crowd was not in a humor to
admire his courage and brute tenacity. Now
and again lie managed to get in some good
blows on various parts of Sullivan s anatomy,
but he in ariably dropped when it seemed
certain thut retaliation was inevitable.
Felled Like an Ox.
In the tl irty-lourtb round a blow behind
and under the right ear fulled Kilrain like an
ox. There was some good fighting in the
thirty-nftli round, Kilrain getting two tre
mendous upper cuts that made the occupants
of the stand give vent to a prolonged "Oh !"
In the thii ty -sixth and thirty-seventh rounds
Kilrain walked around too much for Sulli
van's patu nee and a thousand voices in the
crowd ysllod "Coward." It was light
touches on both sides, walk arounds, clinch
ing and dropping on the part of Kilrain from
Sully Deals Tenderly with Him.
Sullivan evidently pitied his opponent, for
times witi out number he gently pushed him
away with his open bands w hen he could
have delivered blows that would have set
tled the mill then and there. Ia the thirty
eighth round the referee again insisted that
Kilrain sh uld fight, and not walk around.
Donovan objected, but the spectators
howled hiin down. Sullivan delivered two
terrific boly blows in this round, and a third
in the br.-ast that sent Kilrain two feet
backward to the ropes, where he fell in a
Ki rain's Chivalry Rewarded.
In the f trty-fourth round, as soon as be
reached tl e center of the ring, Sullivan be
gan vomit ing freely, and it looked as if bis
stomach v as weakening. Kilrain asked him
to make fie fight a, draw, but Sullivan re
fused. Tlie Kilrainites shouted to their man
to go for Mull i van "in the belly." Kilrain
could not be persuaded, however, to put up
his fists until bis opponent had indicated his
readiness to proceed. In return for his con
sideration he got a blow in the nack that
foiled him like an ox. In the forty-fifth
round Sullivan smashed Kilrain in the ribs,
then landid on his jaw, knocking him down
and stamping on him. A loud claim of foul
was not a dowed.
The Baltimore Roy Weakening.
The seonds of Kilrain knew their man
must lose after this round unless a chance
blow cot Id save him. Sullivan, although
slightly inded, was able to deal sledge ham
mer blows and Kilrain was getting weaker.
His blows had no strength in them and bis
left side ?as evidently giving him consider
able pain. He pursued bis usual tactics of
retreating whenever Sullivan advanced, and
the jeers of the crowd became more and
more mai ked. So it went on round after
round, every one ending in Kilrain going
lake's nead In Chancery.
In the fifty-fourth round, Kilrain succeeded
in getting in on Sullivan's face, but the latter
got Kilrain's head in chancery and pum
meleil hiri to his heart's content The next
round ended by Kilrain falling to the ground
completely exhausted while endeavoring to
spar. K Jrain was knocked down in tbe six
tieth rcun L In the sixty-second he
wound hi arms around Sullivan until the
referee was forced to toll him to break away
and Sullivan himself urged Jake to be a
Harimer and Tone for Kilrain.
In the i.ixty-third round he received a tell
ing blow just under the heart, and in the sixty-fifth
Sullivan went at him with a rush.
In the ntxt round tbe Boston boy forced him
against the ropes, and banged hi in right
and left In the sixty-seventh and sixty

Lays It to Charley Mitchell.
He said he had not been properly trained
and that he was not in condition wboq he en
tered the ring. He ' would work and get
some mon-y together again, he said, and
would once more make a trial for the cham
pionship. Ha was willing to fight Sullivan
again. He complained of the manner in
which Sullivan had jumped upon him with
both feet while he was down, but he
should'nt find fault with this, but be had
trusted too much to his friends. Kilrain laid
down on the seat and coats being placed over
him he soon fell asleep. When tbe train was
crossing the trestle about eighteen miles
from tbe city Mitchell for the first time en
tered the car.
Reproaching His Trainer.
Kilrain awoke shortly after this and re
proached Mitchell for the condition he (Kil
raiu) was in when he entered the ring. Mitch
ell attributed KUrain's defeat to its being
one of his off days. A number of sporting
men who had seen Kilrain in training seemed
to think that he had been tampered with, as
they bad never seen him bit so feebly before.
The Sun Didn't Shine on John I.
Johnny Murphy said it was not Sullivan
but the sun which knocked Jake out KU
rain's condition was mysterious and he had
lieen overtrained. Professor Butler de
clared that be had announced his belief in
Kilrain, and he had stuck to him through
thick and thin. Mitchell had dropped him
like a dog when the fight went against him,

Sullivan's Scientific Tactics.
Sullivan's fighting was the most scientific
he has ever done. He abandoned his old
rushing tactics, husbanded his strength, kept
cool, and seemed to recognize and inspect the
merits of his adversary, while maintaining
abundant confidence in his own abilities.
It was evident that he had a good reserve of
force, which would have been available had
Kilrain been in condition to compel him to
do his best

The Sheriff Has His Say.
Just after the men had taken their posi
tions for tbe fight, tbe sheriff of tbe county
appeared, and formally, in the name of tbe
state, commanded all present to observa the
peace. He then retired, this being all tbe
action he was authorized to take at this
stage of the proceedings. There was no fur
ther movement on the part of the authorities
toward interfering with the fight.
Arrival at New Orleans.
When the train reached tbe station at the
head of IVess street two carriages were pro
cured for the Kilrain party, and Kilrain,
Donovan, Stevenson, Murphy, Butler,
Mitchell, and "Pony" Moore were driven up

Knthusiasm Over John L
The crowd was so enthusiatlo over Sulli
vans victory that his friends had a task to
get him ba k to his coach, where they took
care of him. His coach was not attached to
the specials but was left until the regular
train came along, and the champion did not
reach this city until Up. m., when he was
quietly taken to his apartments. His friends
will get up a banquet for him if he can stay
in the city long enough to attend it.
Snlllvan Will Never Fight Again. "
Sullivan, in an interview last night, said
he would never enter the ring again under
any consideration, lie said Kilrain had
made a good fight and had thumped him
more effectively than any one he had ever
fought with liefore.
Mitt-hell Will Challenge Sullivan.
Sullivan dislocated a knuckle bone on the
first finger of his left hand early in the fight,
and he says that he had to make the rest of
the fight almost single banded. Charlie
Mitchell says he will challenge Sullivan to
fight for 5,000 a side in America within
three or four months.

To Interference with Canadian
THEY LIKE THINGS A8 THEY ABE.
Numerous Protests Against Laving Any
Legal Hardens on the Canadian-American
Railway System Received by tha
Senatorial Investigating Committee
Local Interests Subserved by the Present
Bostox, July 9. The senate committee In
vestigating the relations of Canadian rail
ways to commerce In the United States has
struck a lead of information which is in di
rect opposition to that heretofore given to
it At Saturday's session numerous repre
sentatives of New England business pro
tested vigorously against national interfer
ence with the business of the Canadian roada,
and on yesterday this line of action was con
tinued. A delegation from Bangor, Ma,
was present, and its membere were unani
mous against interference. Resolutions
adopted by tbe Bangor board of trade were
presented by Presideut Neally in which it
is declared that good faith requires non-interference,
to say nothing of the advantages
obtained for New England ports by then
connection with Canadian roads. The
Canadian Pacific having built a road through
Maine under a charter granted by the state
legislature, the resolutions claim that said
railway company should be granted all the
privileges now allowed by the laws of the
United States for tbe transportation of
merchandise through the state to and from
points in Canada, and that all facilities
should be given for tbe transportation of
bread stuffs and other merchandise to and
from all ports in Maine and connecting
History of the Itoad In Question.
Corporation Counsel Stetson addressed the
committee. He said Bangor began many
years ago to build the Bangor and PUca tog-
ins railroad, ninety miles northwesterly to
Moorebead lake to connect with a con
templated road westwi . 1 which was to con
nect with the Canadian roads to the west,
and had put over 1,00U,00U in the enterprise.
Bangor completed its road, but the origin
ators of the connecting link failed, and later
tbe Canadian Pacific got the charter granted
by the state, completed the road and con
nected it with the Maine Central, tbe prin
cipal railroad in the state, thus establishing a
route from Minneapolis to Bangor and SL
John, tbe distance between Minneapolis and
Bangor being about tbe same as that be
tween Minneapolis and Boston. It was tbe
desire of Bangor's citizens that the city be
come a distributing point for north and east
ern Maine. The interest of the entire sec
tion imperatively demanded that nothing be
done to limit international commerce as it is
at present. The Bangor and Piscatogins is
proctected by a state charter from ad
verse influence from the Canadian Pacific.
The new Canadian branch is expected to
make a material cheapening in westarn
Farther Objections to Interference.
J. M Devereaux, of Bangor, Me., repre
senting Castine, Me., read a set of resolu
tions passed by the Castine Railroad and
Navigation compauy. also protesting against
interference, on behalf of Castine.
Ex-Governor Smith, of Vermont, and
James Eurber, manager of tbe Boston and
Maine railway, thought that tbe Grand
Trunk and Canadian Pacific were comply
ing with tbe inter-state commerce law in
every point, and believed that any legisla
tion looking to non-intercourse, if certain re
strictions were not obeyed, would be far
more disastrous to the very roads now ask
ing for it. The subject, they thought, was
one for treaty regulation and amicable dis
cussion, and tbe solution of the problem lay
in such friendly intercourse and negotiation
between tbe two governments as to bring
their policies into harmony.
Resolutions from the Lowell board of
trade were read, protesting against hostile
action against Canadian roads, and Presi
dent Borden, of tbe Fall River board of
trade, talked to the same effect.
Jerome Jones and ex-Govemor Ciaflin tes
tified that the merchants of New England
desired to have the competition of tbe Cana
dian roads continued. F. F. Emery, for the
New England Shoe and Leather association;
Hon. Jonathan Lane, president of the Mer
chants' association, and others svoke in the
same rein. The committee adjourned to
meet at Detroit.
