TOO MANY COOKS ON HAND.
II , C. Ilonney of Vlnton , la. , who Is hero
as the representative of Grand Chief Ham- ,
nay of the teler.raphcrs , stated to a Ileo re
porter yesterday that there appeared to
ho a wrong Impression abroad In regard to
the position of the members of the federated
board toward the members of the American
Tlio federated board Is composed of the
representatives of the various organizations
on the Union Pacific system which had con
tracts with the company before It went Into
the hands of the receivers and which they
maintain are still binding upon the receivers
of the company. The American Hallway
union Is not one of these and the members ,
of the organizations which are say that the
coming In of any other organization now only
means a ncedle s comp'.lcatjon of present dif
ficulties. They nay that the organizations
represented In the federated board , comprise
a very largo majority of all the men on the
system who are affected by the present dif
ferences and that as they have a standing
both In court and before the receivers they
have ! i moans at their disposal to Bottle the
differences which an organization outside
lilts not and cannot have. If they succeed
In Bottling the matter 'those who are not
members of the organizations they represent
will derive the sarno benefits from that
settlement as the members themselves.
l.io receivers tnd the courts have recog
nized the right of the members of the
federated board to speak for thp men In
the departments of the service they repre
sent and have declined to meet others. Any
attempt to forqe recognition on the part of
others will only result In detriment to the
whole of the men employed on the system
wlio are affected by the present differences.
In this position Mr. Honney said there was
no Ill-will toward any organization which had
for Its object the betterment of the condition
of labor , but In this Instance the American
Hallway union only represented a small portion
tion of the men on the system who were
affected and the special organizations of each
class of employes represented practically all
of them. For this reason they thought the
other organizations should stand aside and
not needlessly antagonize the position of Mr.
Clark when no good and only harm could
come of It.
There was a rumor In circulation among
the men yesterday that Oeneral Solicitor
Thuraton was about to retire from the con
ference between Mr. Clark and the men con
cerning the wage schedule. The rumor was
scoffed at at headquarters , however , and no
authentic confirmatory news concerning the
matter can bo obtained.

The first anniversary banquet and cele
bration of the Commercial club was held
last evening. Two hundred representative
business men , capitalists and professional
men of Omaha assembled at tlio club roams
at fi o'clock.
The banquet rooms were profusely deco
rated with red , white and blue bunting and
"Old Glory. " A largo shield In the nation's
colors adorned the wall In the rear of the
loastmastcr's chair. Above It , framed In
smllax , was a likeness of the Nester of the
club , W. A. L. Gibbon. The tables were
artistically decorated with palms , Binllax
and potted plants , some of the latter being
In bloom. The tables were arranged In T
shape. A flood of electricity gave an en
chanting appearance to the scene , while
the Sutorlus Mandolin club added to Ilia
pleasures of the occasion by beautiful se
lections. Chief Wright and a picked corps
ot trained waiters expedited the service of
supplying the euosts with 'a menu , which
was fully up to the usual standard of ex
cellence prepared by Caterer Fred Hartman.
The responses to toasts were limited to
ten minutes each and the reports of officers
were also brief , necessitated by the length
of the program.
President Gibbon occupied the chair of
honor. A shamrock nestled In his coat lapel
In commemoration of St. Patrick's day.
Upon President Gibbon's right were ev-
Governor Saundcrs , John L. Webster and F.
A ( Fltzpatrlck , while Lr. ) George L. Miller.
Edward Hosewatcr and W. H. Hoberson oc
cupied scats upon his left.
At 8 o'clock the dishes were cleared away
and the president , called the anniversary
meeting to order.
PRESIDENT GUIDON'S ADDHESS.
The opening address was made by Mr.
Gibbon. Ho revlowc < l the history of the club
since Its organization. The speaker dwelt
upon the object of the club and Its work ,
past , present and future.
He said that some had erroneously criti
cised the club because It was large and un
"Wo bend the knee at no particular
altar , " ho continued , "we worship at no
political shrine. Our only motto and creed
Is 'Omaha. ' The time has come when we
must stand together on every Issue where
the Interests of Omaha are at stako. We
must see to It that railway rates are fair
and do not discriminate , or else we cannot
build up our manufacturing Interests.
Omaha has been discriminated against for
years by the railways , not because the rail
ways are particularly malicious toward
Omaha , but because this community , until
ono year ago , was behind other cities In con
centrated effort for better rates and Justice
In transportation. United action and or
ganization o ( business men Is a solid
phalanx which will bring the railways to
terms. You cannot expect too much from
a child only one year old , but the Commer
cial club has accomplished considerable
toward securing a revision of tariffs favor
able to Omaha. "
The speaker then cited a number of In
stances to substantiate his assertions , Mr.
Gibbon reviewed the progress made In secur
ing favorable responses from the owners of
industrial plant's In other cities which con
template removal to a transmlssourl local
ity. There was some p'rospect , ho said , of
securing a now sugar refinery , tannery , dry
goods house , shoo factory" and several other
Industries which would Increase the popu
lation of Omaha and odd to Its commercial
development. He , said that the excuse of
many railways thaf'Omaha was entitled to
the "In anil out" basis , was because this
city was regarded by somo. as not being a
terminal. He thought that the lever to
bring about a radical change of sentiment
In this respect would bo a new union depot.
Commissioner Utt and Chairman Weller
of the executlvo committee wore on the
program , but were unavoidably- detained In
Texas , where they are upholding Omaha
commercial Interests at the cattlemen's con
vention at Fort Worth.
Secretary Drexel read his' official monthly
report and briefly reviewed the progress of
the club. He said :
"Tho growth of the club has been pheno
menal , Increasing from sixty-three to 722 in
nine months. Since January 7. fifty-seven
names have been added , making the total
membership to date 779. It Is hoped that
this membership can be Increased to 1,000
before July 1 , 1894. A box , to be termed
the suggestion box. will bo placed In a
prominent place In the rooms at once , and It
is desired and hoped that any member hav
ing a friend or acquaintance who he might
have reason to expect would wish to become
a member of the club , drop the name In this
box and the secretary will gladly call upon
the party and endeavor to secure the appli
cation. This box will also be , as Its name
Implies , a receptacle for suggestions or com
pliments of any kind.
"Sixty-three meetings ot various kinds
by club committees , bureaus and outside
renresentatlvo bodies have been held In the
rooms since the first ot the year. Those
by the executive committee have been espe
cially well attended and not only profita
ble to the club , but especially
profitable to the city at largo. Espe
cially have efforts been put forth to secure
the > location o profitable enterprises. Several -
eral looal Interests have been materially
strengthened financially , giving Increased
output and correspondingly Increased em
ployment. One new bureau has been created ,
that for arranging for a system of autumnal
festivities. This Is with a view of securing
a largo Influx ot visitors at stated occa
sions , greatly benefiting the commercial and
especially the hotel and restaurant Inter
ests. Conventions have been secured , nota
bly that of the Interstate Irrigation asso.
elation , and of the Congrogatlonallsts , to bo
hold hero In May , I think. These will bo
two of treat pecuniary value to our hotels ,
"In conclusion I must again acknowledge"
obligations to the olflcera and members of
of the club for the kindly assistance afforded
mo at all times and beg the privilege of
again soliciting an Increased effort from one
and all to swell the membership and the at
tendance , In which case I promise you that
the club will wield an Influence for the good
pt Omaha that will fully compensate you for
any energy displayed In that direction. "
REPORTS FROM UUREAUS.
Chairman George M. Tlbbs of the bureau
ot Jobbers and Importers made an encourag
ing report ot tho. work accomplished by an
organized effort on the part of the Jobbers.
He cited a great growth In the Jobbing In
terests of the city ns a result of "pulling
together" for the commercial Interests of
the Gate City and said that Omaha In the
future would occupy a position In the west
ern Jobbing world second to none.
Ex-Governor Alvln 'Sounders , as chairman
of the real estate bureau , reported that n
part of the recent work- accomplished by
the bureau was bringing about uniformity of
property valuation for the benefit of people
at homo and abroad , who raada Inquiries
with relation to realty. The speaker re
ported an Increased activity In real estate
circles and that Omaha realty was In better
shapa now than It 1ms boo a for three years.
Values were firm and there , was an Increased
demand for good property , Ho advocated
the I'lattu canal project.
George H. Payne of the liureau ot In
formation followed with a brief report In
which LB advocated Judlcloua advertising of
Omaha as a magnet nround which success
will always cluster. Ho ad | that the eyes
of eastern capitalists were now on the great
Intermediate country of the west , of which
Omaha wan the heart and lungs. Now was
the tlmo to strike , he said In concluttlon , and
sat dawn amid prolpriged applause ,
C. W. Lyman spoke on "Credits and Col
lections , " and discussed the present sys
tem on "country checks , " and upheld the
action of the Omaha Clearing House asso
ciation In rescinding the old system last
July. Ho tmU the tesult had boon satisfac
tory tu the banks , but U had stepped upon
the toes of people who had received benefit
under the old system.
MR. H09EWATER ON OMAHA.
Mr , Edward tlosowator responded to th
toast of "Omaha , " He spoke as follows :
"There never has been a time since I firs
set foot on Omaha soil that I have not been
gratified to speak upon the subject of Omaha
I have seen Omaha grow from a village t <
Its present metropolitan magnitude , and
liopo to see It attain a place as the greates
commercial and Industrial center of the now
"Omaha has proudly passed through the
recent financial depression more satlsfac
torlly than any other city of Its size In the
United States. During the trying times o
the recent financial distress , Omaha has stoo <
with financial solidity and met Its obligations
with comparatively few failures. Other
cities were not so fortunate. I am not going
to dwell upon any statistics of our wonder
ful resources , because they have been pub
llshcd time and again. Omaha Is the center
of a great agricultural belt. What Omaha
needs to assUt In Its development Is more
factories at.d Increased Jobbing facilities
The growth of Omaha to Its present
proportions has been a gratlfylnt
one. Within recent years there have
boon many public Improvements , Including
many miles of paved streets. Omaha busi
ness men should cultivate the Iowa trade ,
bccauso Iowa territory , from a commercial
standpoint , belongs to Omaha. Council Uluffs
la only a suburb of Omaha and If the proper
effort of capital and energy Is made Plaits-
mouth and other adjacent towns will bo
suburban possibilities of the near future.
"Omaha must go forward or else stand
still and there arc too many public spirited
citizens In this community to allow It to
stand still. The future of Omaha depends
upon unanimity of action , the confidence ot
capital and the establishment of factories
which will give work to the unemployed
and create a permanent Industrial and com
mercial activity. "
Dr. George L. Miller spoke upon "Omaha
In 1900. " Ho referred to his predictions
made years ago when his Ideas were laughed
at as visionary. Ho complimented Mr. Rosewater -
water a3 the "little giant of the western
press , " and heartily commended him for the
sentiments Just expressed In his response to
"Omaha. " Dr. Miller said that Chicago at
one time In Its earlier1 history was disheart
ened , but the marvelous enterprise of Its
business men and the confidence Of Its
bankers pulled It through and rescued It
from the gulf of despondency. The doctor
proceeded to give some medicine In alopathlc
doses to some of the bankers and capitalists
ot Omaha who sit back In their easy chairs
and ruminate too much on "cent per cent"
and frowned on some public enterprise
which would , If properly encouraged , blos
som Into a reality which would build up
Omaha. Much also depended upon the
newspapers. He had always preached the
gospel of "Omaha" since the day It
was the grazing ground of the buffalo and
the home of the Indian. He praised ex-
Governor Saunders for the valuabld services
rendered In pioneer days. Omaha's' position
In 1900 , he thought , depended upon the men
of Omaha whom ho faced.
Unity should bo the watchword. Greed
for personal wealth should be secondary to
creating a wealth of commerce and Industry.
The other would be the ultimate-sequel. Dr.
Miller said that none of the great cities
were created solely on commercial lines.
Factories are what build up communities ,
and what Omaha wants Is an Impetus to Its
Industries. Build the canal , ho continued ,
and utilize water power. Some capitalists
who were suffering with apathy and dis
couraged Industrial development could "post
pone the glory of Omaha , but that was all. "
Foreign capital would possibly step In. He
stated that Mr. Ferris and others of na
tional renown wore becoming Interested In
the project , and It would be built. In con
clusion , Dr. Miller predicted 500,000 Inhab-
Itlans within the next decade , and 250,000
people would be the census of Omaha within
five years. The greatest enthusiasm greeted
Walter D. Wllklns sang a vocal solo ,
which was heartily encored.
Warren Swllzler"dellvered. an able address
' ' ' " "and dwelt
on the "Duty of''Membership"
upon the advantages thereof.
Luclen B. Copeland's vocal solo was well
received , after which W. 'H. Hoberson re-
spo'nded to "The Influence the Club Has
Wielded. " Ho complimented the ofllcers
of the organization and Its worthy object ,
coupled with the Interests of Omaha. The
club has demonstrated what has hitherto
been regarded as Impossible In Omaha ,
namely , a harmonious unity ot action among
business men. As a sentiment-maker he
said the club was only second to the news
papers : It has brought railways to a realiza
tion of Its power ; there were bright pros
pects of new Industrial plants being secured
through the Influence of the club. Mr.
Robeison presented a new Idea for the con
sideration of the ciuu. lie inougni. it wuum
be a good Idea to establish a bureau of pro
motion to encourage Increased facilities of
liome Industries and assist deserving busi
ness men of limited means to develop their
plants. He believed In such Judicious as
sistance. It would 'build up commerce and
make the people who render them help" at
the right time a substantial return for their
substantial evidences ot confidence.
"What the Club Can Do" received the at
tention of John L. Webster , who , In sub
stance , referred to the progress of Ne
braska and Omaha and said that while the
agricultural resources of the state ha.d been
a potential factor In the prosperity of the
commonwealth , a country given up entirely
to agriculture can produce no great-city.
He cited New Orleans , Charleston and other
localities as cities that attained a certain
growth and then stood still , Manufacturing
industries , he said , constituted the life-blood
of commerce. The club should encourage
manufacturing. Homo Industries should bo
encouraged. The Investment of capital In
'actorles meant employment to wage earners ,
who would spend their money In the com
munity In which they resided and stimulate
growth of all pursuits. Ho urged the club
to secure factories for Omaha. . .

LONDON , March 17. the fifty-first boat
raca between crews representing Oxford uni
versity and Cambridge university boat clubs
took place this morning over the usual
four-mile two-furlong course from Putney
brldgo to the ship at Mortlako. Oxford
won by three and one-half lengths.
There was no wind and the water was
smooth this morning when boat enthusiasts
commenced at gray dawn to gather on the
tow paths bridges , river banks and other
points of vantage. On all sides were to be
seen the colors of the rival universities , the
dark blue ot Oxford and the light blue of
Cambridge , but these coloro were plentifully
Intermixed with the 'green of Old Erin , for
this year , for the second time only In the
history of these great aquatic contests , was
the race pulled on St. Patrick's day. The
race of 1869 , when Oxford won by three
lengths , was also rowpd on St. Patrick's
day , the time of' the * winner then being 20
minutes , CO seconds.
Oxford was the favorite In the betting , odds
of 2 and 3 and G to 1 being laid on the dark
blues. Cambridge did , uot go to the water
for a breath this morning , but the crew se
lected to defend the Ught blue Indulged In a
walk before breakfast. At 0:10 : a. m. the
mist was clearing away and at the beginning
of the race the haze. , lifted almost com
pletely and showed the old river covered
with vessels of all so tB and sizes and many
thousands of people lining the banks , crowdIng -
Ing the windows and' making the house tops
black with sightseers. The duke of York
was on the umpire's launch In company
with other distinguished people. Almost at
the last moment a change was made In the
Cambridge crew. Finch' being substituted
for Hope as bow oarsman of the light blue
Loud cheers greeted the crow as they made
their appearance above Putney' bridge pre
paratory to taking up the positions for the
start. Cambridge was the first to show up
on the water and the blue boat was also the
first to take up Its position preparatory to
HOW THEY PREPARED.
After the customary course of strict trainIng -
Ing at home , the two crews arrived at Put
ney on Monday , February 26 , and since that
time have been practicing dally on the
Thames. Crowds of sightseers each day
thronged both banks ot. the river when the
men were out and the boat houses of the
two universities were a , constant center of
attraction. The crews were out generally
twlco a day , and both , tlews have frequently
rowed the full course aw a racing pace. Dur
ing these trials Oxfofll'obtained a good mar-
tow paths , bridges-1 rlvpr banks and other
quently the dark blue was a strong favorite
In the betting today and durnlg the past
week. - . .
The Oxford crew Improved very much In
form and speed slndeylfs arrival 'at Putney
and showed that It \ \vas'composod' ' a power
ful and even pulling lot ot men. On the
other hand , the light-blue rowed very neatly
and prettily , but during the trial work on
the river It was sdnn tBatithoy were wantIng -
Ing In quick 'worfa.and required a longer
finish. A'coach"'cif'tlitCantabs did his ut
most to remedy these defects , and It was be
lieved that ho had been to' a great degree
successful. As rcgafda condition , the Cam
bridge men appeared to bo well able to stand
all the work requlred of them and"Vere not
looked upon as overtrained.
In the Cambridge boat four ot the men
had previously rowed In the Interunlverslty ,
whllo Oxford had five old hands In Its boat.
Of the Oxford crew , the largest number
were New college men , four of the oarsmen
hailing from that college , three others from
Magdelen college , ono from Brazenoso college -
lego and ono from University college. H. B.
Cotton of Magdelen again took the bow oar
In the Oxford boat , but the Dark Blues
had a new stroke in C. M. Pitman of New
college. In the Cambridge boat , T. Glewes
of Third Trinity pulled stroke , the same posi
tion which ho occupied In last year's raco.
The Cambridge crew had a''new bow oar and
a new coxswain. The names and weights of

DARK BLUES' ALL THE WAY.
Oxford won the toss and took the Surrey
side of the river. The start was made at
9:20 : , Cambridge getting away first with a
) retty forty-two-to-the mlnute gait and Ox-
'ord starting with a lung and steady forty
stroke. The advantage to Cambridge was
soon lost , for oft the creek , which was
reached In 1 minute 11 becomls , the boats
were oven. At the soap works Oxford Vad
the lead , though a grand race was being
lulled , Cambridge being less than half a
ength behind. Both crows were rowing a
steady thlrty-slx-to-the-mlnute stroke. At
Craven steps there was a marked contrast
ibservabla between the two crews. The
Dark IJIues were working llko clockwork
and the Cantabs were already pulling In a
short and scratchy manner. Their boat
lung between each stroke , and at the steps
Oxford was o few feet ahead.
Both crows were well over toward the
Surrey shore and , as the one-mile tree was
passed , 4 minutes aUd 25 seconds after the
start , Oxford led , by , 'threo-quartera ' of a
ength. Hero the Cambridge crew spurted
and pulled up In smtb'nf their wild steering
and succeeded In 'RcYtlng within half n
length of the OxWrll ' boat. But Oxford
put a little more s'pica Into their boat and
drew away. " ' , n J
Opposite the lead'niflls and ncarlng Ham-
nersmlth brldgo Oxford put on a beautiful
spurt In order to liaV'i' ' tlio honor of being
Irst to pass under ui'd''ttrldge ' , and this honor
.ho Dark nines W&n 'handily , driving their
long shell under "thtf brldgo a full length
ahead ot Cambridge. ' The time of passing
Hammersmith brtd' & 'was S minutes 1C seconds
ends from the Btarl.c '
The gallant Dai'R ' 'Illucs pulling strongly
and finely started' ' ' ' ffnlsh the second half
of the race with ' 'Cambridge apparently a
> enton crew. AtfThorncroft's works Ox
ford seemed to IiatfU' hi race so well In hand
hat they cased up dnd yet Increased their
cad to about four lengths. Here , however ,
the Cambridge men made a splendid spurt
and , cheered on , by their supporters , suc
ceeded In cutting 'down Oxford's lead to
about three lengths at the Devonshire
neadows. The next point Was Barnes' rail
way bridge , and there Oxford was leading
> y a clear four lengths , tu spite ot the
efforts of the Cambridge crew , who were ap-
mrently demoralized. '
Finally Oxford passed the winning line at
itortUke , a winner by three and a half
eiiKtlm. In 21 minutes , 39 seconds. The race
of last year w > a won In 18 minutes , 45 seconds
ends , and by two lengths.
In spite ot the apparently lone gap at the
vlnnlng Hue it was a line race. Oxford
showed rare pulling pqwer and , after pa -
ng Hammersmith bridge , scorned to leave
ho Cambridge crew as though the boat of
ho latter was at anchor , Considerable en-
liuslaum was aroused when the Cambridge
crew made their spurt as the boats
voro making for the Devonshire meadows.
U WAS a beautiful exhibition ot rowing under
discouraging circumstances , but there was
not that degree of machine work In the
Cambridge boat which was exhibited by
their opponents. The Cambridge shell rolled
badly , and at the end ot the spurt at the
Devonshire meadows It was evident that all
the life was out ot the Cambridge stroke ,

NEW YORK. March 17. The steamer
Vogn , which arrived here today from Portuguese
tuguese port , rind the Azores brought the
full story of the bark Montgomery Castle ,
which left this port with a cargo of oil on
January 27 and put In at Fnyal , In the
Azores , recently , with the captain , first ofll-
cer , second olllcer and seven of the crew
missing , the ten men having been drowned
In a storm which the bark encountered u
short time before. The Vega had been
sighted some duys before by a passing ves
sel , drifting helplessly about , and a party
ot sailors went tp rescue her. The sur
vivors of the crew reported that their comrades -
rades were lost near the Island of Pico , In
the Azores. A tremendous sea boarded the
vessel , washing ofT everything moveable
from the deck und smashing In the cabin.
The loss of life was not discovered until
the waters jnibslded , and then not a trace
of the men was seen. Only six of the crew
were left , and these were mostly boys. Not
an officer had been saved. To aggravate
matters , the compass and all other nautical
instruments had also been washed over
board. The bark was 871 tons burden and
the captain who commanded her was
'named Bones. .
A F o that Wns Not ICscnpod.
An eminent French surgeon , who arranges
his scale of fees according to the means of
his patients , not long ago told one of his
visitors that he could not charge him less
than 30,000 francs for a certain difficult oper
ation. " The applicant retired in blank
amazement , and was not seen again In the
private consulting room of the famous prac
titioner. Some time afterwards a servant
man in stylish livery , and clean shaven , pre
sented himself at the hospital which Is at
tended by our surgeon , and was accommo
dated with a bed In one of the wards. The
surgeon took the case In hand and paid sev
eral visits to the honest valet. When he was
so far recovered that he could leave the hos
pital , Dr X. sent for him and said :
"I know you very well from the first ; you
put on your servant's livery In order to
save 30,000 francs. You will now please to
hand over thin amount In charity to the
Assistance Publlqtie , ' otherwise I shall
bring the affair under public notice. "
The poor baron was forced to submit. Ho
has now betaken himself to his seat In the

There were lively times at Green's saloon ,

to make both of them drunk , were they not

them as to who should pay for them. They
decided to settle It by fighting and at once

CHICAGO , March 17. ( Special Telegram to
The Deo. ) Inspector Shea hammered his
silver-headed cane furiously on the plno door
of a sixteen-foot ring at the Second Reg
iment armory tonight and ordered the
glove contest between young Grlffo and Ike
O'Neal Weir to cease. In his estimation It
was too brutal to continue.
This happened whllo the third round was
scarcely a mlnuto old. "Tho Belfast
Spider" was In the game at no stage of It.
Ho seemed utterly unable to land on Grlffo ,
who tantallzltigly danced out ot roach of his
opponent's harmless , but well .meant blows.
Alfred Griffiths again demonstrated that ho
la a wonder. Ho did not act like the same
chap who boxed with George Lavlngo
In the same building a few weeks
ago. Ho was really In something
like condition , and as strong us n young bull ,
The Spider had no chance to cut up any of
hli famous monkey shines. Grlffo had him
going almost from the start. The canvas
flooring In the ring had to bo removed be
fore the boxers would go on. At best the
ring was a slipshod affair. The armory
probably never held a larger crowd. There
was not an Inch ot room and the atmosphere
was suffocating. Inspector Shea and a de
tail from the central station occupied seats
close to the ringside. In the crowd were
scores of aldermen and every sport who had
the prlco was there. It was so hot that
hundreds of men and boys sat In their shirt
It was after 10 o'clock when the loose
canvas was ripped out of the ring. Grlffo ,
who were blue trunks , climbed through the
ropes and was wildly cheered. Weir , who
were green tights , a black shirt and red
stockings , also received an ovation. Weir
looked as If trained a bit too flue. Grlffo
was seconded by Steve O'Donnell , Sam Fltz
patrlck and Jack Costcllo , whllo Solly Smith
and Harry Gllmoro did honors for the
"Spider. " Jerry Daly held the watch for
Grlffo and Malachl Hogan for Weir. George
Slier was the referee.
Grlffo were a bandage around his left
wrist. Hla flesh was clear and firm and
ho looked llko a fighter. The gloves , four-
ounce affairs , were quickly donned , and It
was seen from the start that Weir was
outclassed. Ho began to cut a slashing
pace , but , to his disgust , found that well-
Intended blows failed to connect. Grlffo
Jumped around llko a dancing master.
Every now and then he let go his left and
ho always landed. Weir became despcrato
and attempted a hurricane mlxup. In which
ho got the short end of the bargain. "Ho
can't _ hit him at all , " shouted a score of
vplces. And Weir couldn't. The round
ended decidedly In Grlffo's favor. U was
evident that the Belfast Spider had tackled
the wrong man.
The second round was a rusher. Weir
came up smiling , but as weak as a drunken
sailor. Grlffo had him going soon with
right and left-hand swings In the neck.
Weir made a vicious uppercut , falling three
feet short. Th'eti Grlffo's mlt tickled him
on the Jaw and ho rolled In a heap
on the floor. The Spider was going fast.
As fast as Weir staggered to his feet the
Australian sent him down. Weir was too
excited to take advantage , of time. He had
been keeled over five times" In succession ,
but came back as gamely as a man could.
When he went down the sixth time he waited
until the referee counted seven. A second
later he was again sprawling on the floor.
Once again and again he was floored. This
time , the eighth knock down of round two ,
ho took full advantage of his time. Grlffo
keeled him over for the ninth time , and the
call ot time saved the Bostonftm ftom a clean
knock out. >
The end came early In the third. Grlffo
had hardly received a blow and was not In
the least winded. Ho warded oft Wolr's wild
rushes handily. Then he let loose his left.
Weir sank' ' down , but was up In an Instant ,
only to receive another crushing blow. Inspector
specter Shea commenced to pound with his
cane , but the referee did not hear him. As
AVelr went down for the third time. Shea
attracted Sller's attention.
"This flght must stop , " he said.
The crowd howled and sent up three cheers
for Grlffo. There was no decision , but
Grlffo received the winner's end of the nnrsn.
