Comgtock.Apparently no Match for
the Little Iowan-
AXD WASXT IX IT AT ALL.
The Wresting Matrh at Iiarprr'M
Theatre l,a Kvenius The
lchigantler no -oocl After
the First Fall.
The event toward which the local
sporting community has been lookio"
sometime, took place at Ilar-
pet 8 theatre last evening. It was the
much-talked of wrestling match between
"Farmer" Mart Burns the Iowa champion
and J. C. Comstock champion of Miciii
gfn. for h purse of $150. Burns
was already a favorite, having become
well known through former visits here.
Comstock, too, had won many friends in
his wrestling match with Carkeek at Har
per's theatre 10 days since. The match
was for a S100 bet between the men and
a purse of $50 provided by the Rack Isl
and Athletic club. The conditions were
three out of five falls, two points down.
There was a fair sized audience present
at 8:45 when the commencement of trie
contest was announced. A good sprink
ling of the sporting fraternity from Dav
enport and Molina were present, but the
sporting element did not alone predomi
nate, as quite a number of business and
professional men from this city occupied
boxes and apparently greatly enjoyed the
exhibition of skill and strength. At 8
o'clock Johnny Gipson, who acted as
master of ceremonies, introduced the two
men. Con Dojle was time keeper, aid
Jim Sweeney, of Davenport, was referee.
Biily Gibson handled Burns, while Johnny
Cowden was in Comstock's corner and
looked after his wants. When time was
called the men came forward and
both dropped to the floor and after each
in turn pressing the other bead to the
floor and attempting to throw the other
bodily, Comstock gave Burns a dizzy
headspin and the first flying fill was at
tempted but failed. Burns then got a
half Nelson and was on the point of
bending him to thejloor, when Comstock
bridged and turned on his side. Burns
then got the same hold again, and again
be failed to floor his mm. Comstock
then took the aggressive and after getting
a kip lock on Burns be raised him with
main strength and apparently gave Burns
a flying fall, but as a referee will not call
one unless he sees it plainly, Conutoek
did not get the credit. Then he got a
half and a double Nelson and with his
weight he pressed Burns' shoulders to
tie floor, at the same time asking the
referee if he "wished him to nail him to,
the floor," but Referee Sweeney called it
just at that minute, Comstock winning it
in 19 minutes. The men rested 10 min
utes, which was spent in putting themv
selves in shape for the next bout . The
interest among the spectators was in the
meantime increasing, and when the men
again appeared they were cheered lustily,
and both went at it with a will. Fly
ing fallB were again attempted by both
men and neither met with success. Burns
then went at it with a will and after get
ting and losing several good holds, he
got a front Nelson and a hammer lock
and by pressing his weight steadily on
Comstock he touched his shoulders to the
floor, and won the fall in five and one
half minutes. Another rest of 10 min
utes was indulged in, at the end of which
the men appeared, both apparently con
fident and aaxious for the bout. In this
round the same maneuvers that had char
acterized the other two were again dis
played, but when they had only been
wrestling two minutes Comstock's nosa
began to bleed and the referee gave him
two minutes' time, after which the men
again closed in, Comstock acting on the
defensive all the while, and at
the same time doing some
very pretty bridging while Burns
worked away manfully. Comstock be
gan to show signs of exhaustion and was
getting surly and he showed it plainly,
but his good nature overcame it again and
he smiled. Burns kept a cool even tem
per all the while, and he attempted to
give Comstock a number of falls in quick
succession, but Comstock though he
looked weak and winded, thwarted him
each time with surprising agility. Burns
then raised his opponent and gave him a
pretty head spin and attempted to send
him to grass, butComstock twisted and
landed on his side. Burns followed it
quickly with a half Nelson and arm lock
and bending his adversary on his side put
two points down in iust 25 minutes. The
cuBtomary rest was taken; Burns went to
his corner and did not appear greatly
fatigued though Comstock was plainly
short of wind and his attendants put in
the time fanning him and getting him
ready for what proved to be his "down-
fail." The two men came out smiling
tbongh Comstock was plainly not in the
best of shape, but they took holds and
Burns secured almost every hold he wished
and though he did this he fcad by no
means a walk away, Comstock showing
some very skillful work in this line. At
one time Burns had him almost to the
flocr but with a mighty effort Comstock
wrenched himself from the "farmerV'
grip and turned again upon his side.
Burnt then obtained a double arm lock

two shoulders to the floor in 12 minutes
thus winning the fall and match, and the
purse offered by the Athletic club was
paid to Farmer Burns, the winner.
At the outset Comstock seemed to have
much the best of it being a much more
powerful man than Burns, though
youriper at the business, and Burns pro
nounced him "all tired strong," wten he
went to his corner after the first fall, but the
wonderful alaciitv and endurance of the
"farmer," which has been so frequently
spoken of, won the night and he ap
peared as fre?h at the close as he was at
the start. Comttock on the other hand
wasn't in it after the first bout. He had
exhausted bis strength in attempting to
master the tough little wiggler and he had
not even resistive power when it came
Burns' turn to assume the aggressive and
the latter simply wore his big rival out.
There have been a great many conjec
tures made today as to whether the match
was or was not "put up." Those assert
ing that it was, base their opinion on the
fact that Comstock did not handle him
self as he did in his match with Carkeek.
and that he has since said that it was a
"job." Burns himself says that the
first fall was a "fake," and that he was
down twice before the referee called the
fall. Comstock this morning stated
tha'. he will now quit wrestling. Burns

The Iowa-Illinois base ball league
season opened yesterday, the Davenport
and Aurora clubs meeting at Davenport
and the Iowa boys won by the score of 10
to 1. The batteries were Nicol and Sage

backstop, distinguished himself by many
brilliant plays. The same two teams
play today and tomorrow and will haye
good crowds on each occasion, no doubt.
