THE BUTTE I TER MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXII. No. 331. BUTTE, MONTANA HURSDAY APRIL 9, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS DEATH ENDS A RING BOUT Grim Specter Stalks in at Prize Fight and Car ries Off Boxer. HENRY TAYLOR DEAD Fails to Recover From a Knockout Blow at a Local Gym. HAD DISEASED HEART Said Blow Would Not Have Hurt a Well Man Opponent Jailed. Death ended a boxing contest at the Broadway gymnasium last night. Henry Taylor, a negro bootblack, went down and out in the second round, never to recover consciousness. A diseased heart and hard ened blood vessels caused a concussion of the brain, which brought an end to life. At a post-mortem examination held in Sherman & Reed's undertaking rooms, Dr. Haviland and Dr. McCarthy discovered this fact. Harry White, the man whose last blow sent Taylor to the mat, was ar rested this morning by Detective Barney -McGillic and Sheriff Quinn. He wi'l be liberated this evening, it is stated, at the close of the coroner's inquest. When Taylor entered the ring he was suffering from what physicians term a schleoritic heart and blood vessels. This was, the ductori state, caused by previous disease. The man had complained of pains in his heart while at work at his bootblack stand during the week. He fought through one'round last evening and was clearly to the bad. During the s-rond round White closed in and delivered a series of light right and left blows, the first on the jaw and one or two following on the head. Taylor sank to the floor, turned over and lay there. The crowd filed out laughing. The man went down so easily they thought it might be a fake on his part. NEVER RALLIED FROM BLOWS IN THE RING But Taylor's seconds did not laugh. Their man failed to come to. They took him to a Turkish bath. Thence he was removed to St. James' hospital. Dr Dogge and Dr. McCarthy attended him. He never rallied. At $ o'clock he died. When White was arrested he said: "I don't see how it could have happened. I struck him lightly. I would not have had it occur for a thousand dollars." According to the physicians who per formed the post-mortem the concussion which Taylor suffered would, in his case, result from a light blow, In a healthy man it would come from nothing short of a hard swing. With Taylor it was, they say, undoubtedly superinduced by what, in plain English, are hardened heart and blood vessels. The man was not fit to enter the ring. Coroner Egan examined into the cir cumstances of the case. He expressed himself today as very positive that White would be liberated from custody this evening. He will hold an inquest at 7:3o at Sherman & Reed's undertaking rooms. The Broadway Athletic club will turn over the gate receipts to pay the expenses of Taylor's funeral. So far as it is known the dead man has no relatives in this city. ORDERED TO PAY ' TRUSTEE SPENCER MUST GIVE UP FUNDS IN HAND IN A BANK RUPTCY CASE.
