A Large Crowd Witnesses the Contest
Kefore the Crescent Club The Long

Hall in True Yankee Style -The Fight by
New Orleane, March 8 The battle
of the rci-ldle weigtits ia over. The
March carnival of pugilism becomes
prizs rirz history, aud Bob Frziin
tnons stands before the country as
IIhII'c conqueror and the winner ot the
largest purse ever foaht for. A mat
niQc(rit crowd in punt ( f s:'z3 and psi
soimel saw tb.4 g-a", battle tonight.
Cluts a id managers trie! for fts-veral
months to bring the Australians to
gether, and it was onls sacceisf ally as-
complished after numerous dis tppoiot
ments and failures in t equations.
Each of the i nocipals were regarded a
a woDder in his class. Th-y are men
somewhat; riorjar in build Both are
giants in strength, healthy, big boned,
long armed, stubborn, formidable
lighters, adepts in science, experienced
in the ring, bard punchers, and each
with a distinctive style. So close was
the match considered for a long time
that even money was wagered. Today
Hall was strongly the favorite, but the
influx of Fitzsimmons men and money
beat down Hall and made Fitzsimmons
for a time the favorite. Neither man
worked hard on the last day. Each re
mained quiet except when Fitzsim
mons went to take out his naturaliza
tion papers and Hall to dine with
Charley Mitchell. The arrangements
at the rinz-side were perfect. The
crowd was renreseatative in cnaracter
and thoroughly cosmopolitan.
The two principals reached the arena
in ample time to prepare themselves
for the battle. Both men were trained
to a flte poinr, but neither bad taken
off much nsb. The men entered the
ring at 9 promptly. Hall leading the
procession. lie was loudly cheered, as
was Fitzsimmons, who came in waving
au American lUg.
The men chosen to look after Hall's
interests wan thelight-weigbtchampion,
McAuliffe, Charlie Mitchell, Squire Ab
bingdon Baird, and John Koiue, hold
ing the watch. Fitzsimmons had
men with less reputation out
not lets faithful than Hall's
attendants, Billy Fitzsimmons, h s
brother, Martin Julian and Frank Bos
worth, D. G. O'Malley keeping time.
Referee Duffy made a neat speech,
counselling the usual good order, and
cautioned the men about fouls and the
usaal club rules. Capt. Barrett weighed
the gloves, finding them of lawful
weight, and handed them to Martin
Julian, who took them over to Hall for
choice, and Mitchell selected the princi
pal's gloves. .Referee Duffy announced
that the pivot blow was barred and the
iiound l. ine usual handshaking
was indulged in and both men stepped
mmb.y to the center and reinted for the
opening. Fitzsimmons attempted a
left ujp-r cut, but Hall backed away.
He failed a eecond time and clinched.
Hall then 'e3 for the stomach and re
ceived a tap on the shoulder. Fitz
Bcored a heavy left on . Hall's mouth
and a right on the heart without a re
turn. Hall made a wild left swing and
Fitz smilingly dodged. Fitz landed a
heavy right on the ear and Fitz
clinched. Hall hit Fitz on the head as
the round closed.
Hound 2. Fitz missed a left on the
stomach and immediately after a right
oa tha body, because Hall clinched.
The men were extremely cautions.
Hall received a heavy left on the
stomach, responding with a heavy left
on the head. Hall landed a heavy
left and received a good return in the
head. Fitz forced Hall into a corner,
but the latter clinched to avoid punish
ment. Fitz tried to land a lef t.but was
neatly stopped. Both men in a hot
raltv Bcoied bits on the bead.
Iiound 3 Fitz was the aggressor,
landing on the stomach ; later on the
body and heal. Then Hall landed two
heavy lefts on the face and a heavy
right upper-cut. Fitz clinched to save
himself, and Duffy had difficulty in
parting them. Fitz continued clinch
ing to avoid punishment.
HoaDd4. Hall came up the aggres
sor, and Fitz landed a heavy right on
the jaw, knocking Hall into the middle
o&tbe ring. The blow was a tremen
dous right hand swing and landed full
on the pint of the jaw. Hall was a
long time coming to, and was finally
helped to his corner by Fitzsimmons. "
The referee awarded the contest to
Fitzsimmons who, waving a United
States fla-g above his heao, walked to
bis opponent's corner and shook bands
and as he was leaving the ring received
a tremendous ovation.
. The fight was the easiest Fitzsim
mons has had in America, and the blow
that knocked Hall was universally said
to be the hardest that any of the old,
prze ring habitues ever witne sed. The
audience rcs- to its f c?et and a tremen
dous shout went up. Hall lay uncon
scious ou the carpet, with a look of
agony ou hn face. It was feared he
bad suffered serious injury, but Lis sec
onds, with the club officials and a doc
tor, ran quickly to the prostrated man,
and, appiyiog restoratives, gradually
brought him back to consciousness.
Fitzsimmons ran around the ring,
hastily pulling off his gloves, anl
helped resuscitate his conquered foe.
When Hail was brought to ne was car
ried limp to a chair, where he remained
until he was able to go the dressing
room. Fitz was frenzied with delight
over his comparative easy victory.
After Hail was brought back to con
sciousness Fitzsi minens skipped nimbly
to tharooro, acd without putting ou
his ciotnea orew on his heavy overcoat
and jumped into the carriage with his
wife and drove to their quarters. A
gr?at crow! congregated in front of the
winrer on Canal street, giving him a
rousing welcome as fce drove up. Atter
he had gone up stairs. Fitzsimmons
came ouo on the bi'cony and made a
modest speech After aidi in his room

"Hall is the cleverest man I ever met.

For three rounds it was a superb ex
hibition of clean bitting, deft maneu

ing. There was more righting in those
three rounds, according to rales, than
iu the entire battle between Sullivan
and Corbett last September, and mem
ory does not supply in the ring history
a match of men so difficult to pick
their superior. Hall felt that be

gone. He meant to force matters in
the fourth, but for the moment he was
unguarded. In that moment he lost a
Hall remained in the room an hour
after the fight was over. For a long
time he was dazed and uncommunica

meant a volume. "I got it on my jaw

The men fought at catch weights for
superiority only. The purse was for
840,000; 82,500 went to the ioser. and
the remainder to the winner. The au
dience which rilled the immense audi
torium was variously estimated at be
tween 4,000 and 4,500. The financial
result of the tight is not yet known, but
it is the general opinion that the club

Mr. i?iithorlnnil pot hold of a prodig
ious Clarendon and Enrnet and made it
the richest and most r-stensivc pictorial
history in existence or ever likely to be
in existence. He found nearly 19,000
prints and drawings for it and no less
than 731 portraits of Charles I, 518 of
Charles II. 352 of Cromwell, 273 of James
II and 420 of William III. If, remarks
Mr. Percy Fitzgerald, we only think
how few are the tmrtaits of Charles I,
and these mostly copies after Vandyke,
we shall have an idea of the labor and
exploration necessary to gather up the
731. Think also of the pains and cost in
cleaning, "laying down," "insetting,"
and ''inlaying" these portraits, the bind
ing, arranging, etc., and we shall not be
surprised to learn that this folly occu
pied the fanatical Sutherland such a
lengthy portion of his life.
"SVhen finished, it filled 67 huge vol
umes and had cost i2,000! We may
conceive all the visitings of print shops,
the turning over boxes of prints, the
groveling among winds and lanes, the
correspondence and the endless paying
of money! To give a finish to his labors
a catalogue was prepared of all the en
gravings. This filled two great quartos.

ried on by his widow, who ts reported to
have given as much as S0 for a single

Peculiarities About Tramps.
"A fact about your professional vagrant
or tramp is that they never want to go
back to the place from where they were
sent," says a ienitentiary superintendent.
"For instance, if one is sent in from along
the Susquehanna road, ou his discharge
he usually requests to be sent north, east
or south, or any direction that will take
pim away from that in which he was ap
prehended. "Only the other day a tramp sent from
Otsego begged to be sent to Hudson. He
begged 60 hard that I gave him a ticket to
Hudson. The next day he was back again.
'They pulled rue as soon as 1 6tepped from
the train,' he said. County officers, you
see, are always on the lookout for tramps
because of the mileage received for bring
ing them here. Work? No, they wouldn't
show any inclination or desire for work if
they had to lay in the penitentiary for
months. But we compel them to earn
their keep, very much to their disgust.
Usually I set them to work cane seating
chairs." Albany Journal.
It was raining in torrents.
"Julie!" said madam to her maid, "be
quick and run across to the milliners and
tell her not to forget my hat."

A young lady through her knowledge
of housewifery rather turned the tables
npon a would be jester one day and. let
that individual, who was of the male
persuasion, into a little secret of con
siderable importance to those who have
occasion to work in the kitchen as ama
teurs. The two were members of a party vis
iting an Adirondack camp in the Sara
nac lake region. Every one was well
acquainted, and the days passed merrily
away until a heavy rainstorm drove
the ladies and the less enthusiastic fish
ermen indoors and compelled them to
seek other forms of amusement. The
rain continued to fall almost without
intermission for several days, and as a
moans to relieve the monotony the gen
tleman already referred to proposed that
the various members of the party try
their hand at cooking the next meal.
Permission was obtained from the host,
-.he r.iemlors of the party laughingly
agreed to the proposition, and the guide,
whose duty it was to act as cook, was for
the time sent about other business. The
gentleman acted as chef, and with a
knowledge obtaiTied from serving on the
house committee of a prominent New
York club proceeded to assign various
work to hi:j aids and appointed the young
lady first vegetable took for the express
purpose of lnakill.,' her peel onions, the
odor cf winch she lor.thed.
When t he part y ad j ou med t o the kitch
en to begin preparations, a large supply of
strong odored red onions was brought to
the lady, and she was requested to remove
the outer cuticle. The acting chef and the
others who had boon let into the secret
made merry over the snppcsed discomfi
ture of the first vegetable cook, but the lat
ter smiled sweetly and uttered no protest.
"Briug rue a di-ep pan," i.he Mid to her
helper, and when this v.'p.s produced she
filled it to the brim with water. Then
she tucked up her sleeves to the elbow,
showing just the pic ttiest pair of arms
in the world, said removing her rings set
to work peeling the onions under water
with a deftness that showed how famil
iar she v.-as with the v.-ok and depriv
ing it of all its effectiveness.
It was a revelation to the man, who
had looked either for n vigorous protest,
or had expected to see the eyes of the
vegetable eeolc vrater from the effects of
the onion juice. Ihe amateur dinner
was in every v;:y a success, but none of
the cooks achieved a greater triumph
than the one whose practical experience
