T&e Great Twenty Rounds Contest Is the All Absorbing Topic. Enthusiasm is now at fever heat over the great Murphy and Byers con test. It is the one great topic dis cussed by the lovers of boxing. Never before have two men met in this city who were so evenly matched and where the outcome looked so uncer tain. This battle means much to both men, as it will determine who will be matched against the top notchers of the profession. Murphy is now at New London under the charge of Mart Goss, who trained him for his contest with Lane. 'He realizes, the impor tance of this engagement and will leave no stone unturned to get in the best possible condition. Byers is at a suburb of Boston training under the veteran, George Godfrey, and word comes that he is already in the pink of condition. This contest is sure to be the fastest battle ever seen here, as both men have confidence in their ability to defeat the other. Peter Ma her will be the referee and his name is enough to satisfy everyone that the most important position will be filled by a capable and honest man. The great interest manifested in the Mur phy and Byers contest is so all absorb ing that the contest between George Giddons and Walter Campbell is over looked, but in these two men Manager Hammond has two of the most scien tific men of the club, and this contest is sure to be one of the best fought battles ever seen. Siddons twenty rounds contest with Flaherty, who de feated McBride last Thursday, shows that he is still a great boxer, and Campbell's draw with Griffin will give the Waterbury people an idea of his caliber. Farrington and Brooke are both training hard and from their ap pearance look fit for a warm contest, which they will surely make. FOUND AT LAST. Enrtnear John Foyle'a Body Taken From the Hudson River. POTJGHKEEPSIE, N. Y., Nov. 1. Yesterday afternoon the Pou-gtfikeepsie volunteer life saving corps, composed of Captain Isaac H.
