It was reported this morning that

Both ships left Tacoma on the

Special 7 The TJsrrD Press.
PoBTiiAXD, Dec 27. A glove con
test between Dave Campbell, the Port
land boy, and Larry Sullivan, of As
toria, occurred this evening in the pa
vilion. The attendance was about
1,500. Campbell was an easy winner,
it requiring oulthree rounds to de
feat his man. !
Sullivan and Campbell entered the
ring at 1020 o'clock.
In the first round Larry got in a
good facer but Dave retaliated with- a
knock-down blow that possibly was a
slip. The round ended in a clinch,
savoring of London rules instead of
Queensbnry,and Sullivan secured
first blood. Larry did tho leading,
and raised the hopes of the Astorians.
The round, although tame, was in
Larry s favor.
Second Bound. Sullivan fought
and showed his cleverness to great ad
vantage by neatly ducking several
savage swings. Near the end of the
round both clinched and fell, with
Sullivan on top, when time was called.
In the third round, and the last,
Sullivan resorted to tantalizing tactics
and scored several good jabs, which
whsre heavily countered by Campbell,
and as both afterwards resorted to
straight slogging Sullivan gave way
from a heavy blow on the neck, going
down. Ho rose while groggy, receiv
ing another fall and while in the act of
recovering he received a third blow
which sent him into tho audience.
When replaced on the stage ho was in
a helpless condition. He attempted
to again face the heavy sledge ham
mer blows of Campbell, when a blow
m the region of right ear sent him to
grass, he being knocked senseless.
Beferee "White of the San Francisco
Examiner gave the fight to Camp
bell. Campbell was seconded by Charlie
Gleasou and Charlie Traung, while
Joe Baker and Billy Scott acted in
like capacity for the Astoria favorite.
The people were surprisod to seo
Sullivan go out so quick, and Mark
Sohlnssel and others of Astoria claim
that Sullivan was knifed in tho leg in
the last round. Physician's advice
will be asked.
