Al Owens returned this mornicg from
New Orleans, where he has been during
the past week attending the great fistic
Mr. Owens was one of the party who
went by special train from Streator, he
being an intimate friend of Billy Myers.
Wtec seen by an Argus reporter this
morning he expressed himself as being
perfectly satisfied with the outcome of
all the fights, remarkicg that sciecce was
the victor in each.
"What kind of a fight did young Skelly
put up?" asked the reporter.
"He was mainly outclassed, be re
plied. "Dixon had him whipped from
the start, and although the Brooklyn
boy at times showed some clever points,
he was not in it at any stage of the fight."
"How about the Myer-McAuliffe bat
tle?" Well, to be plain," replied the
speaker. "Myer was whipped in the
second round. He told me in
a conversation with him after the fight
" that he was so groggy in the latter part
of the round that he could scarcely han
dle himself. 'Why.' sid Myer, 'I
couldn't have whipped Jack McAuliffe
witbTV base ball club." Our party lost
lots of money on Myer but got some
back on tee last fight."
"What is your opinion of the Sullivan
"Sulliyjan was the worst whipped man
I ever raw. He was knocked out plain
and simple, and it was science that did
it. Corbett, I believe, could whip 10
Sullivans. He played all around the
big champion, who was simply unable to
defend himself. When he went down
he fell like a ox. and his efforts to rise
were pitiful. The will was there but the
power was not, and he lay like a log and
ws counted out by Duffy, the referee."
Mr. Oens brought home many
mementoes of the fights, having photo
graphs of all the contestants ani a piece
of the towel with which Corbett was
rubbed down, which was given him bv

. LOCAL SPORTIXG NOTES.
Tonight at Turner hall occurs the
wrestling match between Farmer"
Burns atd Hugh Dougherty, the Eng
lishman. The match is to be catch-as-catch-can,
two points down, best three in
fire falls, no holds barred, for a bet of
$50 a side. The money is up and the
men have been in practice, and the re
sult will no doubt be as fine a contest of
athletic skill as ever took place in the
city. The friends of both men are con
fldent of success and it will be for blood.

lie birds, the result being that Rogers
