Four hundred spectators witnessed a glove contest Tuesday evening at the Lloyd opera house between Brown, an employe of the local shops, and Muggsy Shoels, of Cheyenne. It was a ten round go, and there was not a round in which Brown did not hnve the big end of the fighting and time after time Shoolswns floorejl by Brown's trip hammer blows. In the first roundBrown floored his man, drew blood from his nose and broke the cuticle on his cheek, and from the first tolapt Muggsy was almost at the mercy of his adversary. The final round saw four or five knock downs and in the last time'Jdown Shoels was counted out nnd the fight awarded to Brown. Both men weigh about 145, and while Brofn is not a scientific fighter, he is aggressive, his blows had steam behind them and he forced the fighting at all times. Shoels was in no condition to fight, so his friends says; he was "soft," lacked wind and force in his blows, and seemed to lose confidence after the first round, which ended disastrously to him.
