Duriug the early part of the week handbills were distributed in Douglas City and Juneau announcing that a glove contest would take place in this city 011 Wednesday evening at the Douglas City Music Hall. In the amusement line the two cities have really been very quiet this winter, and news that such an event was to take place was received with considerable satisfaction. There are many objec tions that can be urged against a bru tal prize fight, and, of course, some peo ple object to even the most refined glove contest; but in the exhibition i given last Wednesday evening a close observation of everything that took place failed to develop anything of an objectionable nature. The people at tending were not all sports by any means, and some of the l>est people in both cities were there to witness the ' sparring. : Gallagher and McLaughlin came over from Juneau on the 4:45 boat. There were also many others that came on the same l>oat to witness the contest. The 9:15 ferry from Juneau was crowd ed and not a few brought women with 1 them to see the fun, for of late years it is considered all right for ladies to at- i tend glove contests. Of course Tread i well, the Mexican, Ready Bullion and Seven Hundred each sent a large dele gation and by 10 o'clock it was pretty lively around town. The Standard was the principal ren dezvous for the crowd, but they kept coming and going between that place and the Douglas, where the exhibition was to take place. 1 Tickets were in good demand at $2.50 each, and a little after half past ten ticket holders commenced filling up the chairs and benches around the ring. C. McLaughlin, one of the contest ants, is a native of Florida, thirty-five years of age, five feet ten inches tall, and weighs 160 pounds. He has been in Alaska for the last seven or eight months and until a few days ago was employed at the Ready Bullion as an j electrician. He came from Tacoma to Tread well, and expects to soon leave this place for either Atlin or Porcu pine. He never engaged in a prize fight or even a public contest with gloves, except in the Athletic clubs and gymnasiums in his native state. He is a pleasant appearing fellow, and from the talk the News mau had with him we should say he is a man of edu cation and refinement. He has known his opponent for about two weeks and there is no bad blood between them. McLaughlin had for his seconds, Smith, Broughton and Hall, who are also from Tacoma and persoual friends of his. Kid (Jallagher, the other principal, is twenty-seven years of ago and was born at Xortonville, California. He lias been in Alaska for the past fifteen months and has put in his time mining and prospecting. He is live feet nine and one-half inches high and weighs but 115 pounds, being one half inch shorter and fifteen pounds lighter than his adversary. The Kid has had con siderable experience iu the ring and he has been, with only slight exceptions, a dead winner. In all he has won thir ty-seven contests, had three draws and suffered one defeat, which was in 1S0(>. He was .formerly sparring partner of Dol Hawkins, who was a hard man to beat in his class. The Kid, it will he remembered, defeated Charley John son at Anaconda, Mont., in 1HJK>, Ed. Kurkeat Jhitte in 1893, and Denver Cyclone at Phillipsburg, in the same state in 181)1. llis last contest was at Wallace, Idaho, with Dick Carroll, which resulted in a draw, after tift.een rounds, on account of his breaking some of the liones in his hand. He was seconded by Jimmie Kelly, Tim Conley and Theodore Carson. THE RING was eighteen feet square, roped, and was in the back part of the large room occupied bv the Douglas Music Hall at the corner of News avenue and First street. At 10:15 the Kid made his appearance in the hall with his overcoat on and closely buttoned up. The crowd gave him a hearty greeting by clapping of hands. Later on McLaughlin entered the room with a heavy overcoat on, closely buttoned up, and he 'too was recog nized and appropriately greeted. Me was not as well known to those present as the Kid for he is of a more quiet disposition and he has been working way down at the Ready Hull ion where people did not have the best opportu nity of making his acquaintance. WHILE WAITING the Standard Orchestra dispensed some music that was very agreeable to the large crowd that was seated and stand ing around the ring. For a change one of the Standard girls gave a skirt dance that pleased the audience very much. The dancing was of the best while the kicking was "out of sight." The crowd clapped their hands and cheered in such an enthusiastic manner that It left no doubt of the appreciation of this part of the entertainment. At 11:40 the master of ceremonies announced that a bout would take place between the Dago Kid and John ny Smith. The Kid smiled while he sat in his chair; he is a most innocent looking fellow. He is a blacksmith's helper and is only twenty or twenty one years of ago and weighs probably 120 pounds. Really, those who looked at him for the first time expected but little from him. Smith is smaller and younger and weighes probably live, or perhaps ten pounds less than the Dago Kid.- He wore a brighter look and was the fa vorite of the crowd. He showed by his face that he didn't lack 'in nerve aud grit, and the crowd was in no way dis appointed in him. The selection of Johnny Clark aa referee was announced and then tin* two kids were ordered to shake hands, whieh they did. Time was called and the boys went at it for four rounds. 1st ROUND. Smith led with a smart blow on the Dago's face and one ou his head, and gets one in return. Dago backs off and gets several in the face. Smith pushes the fighting and shoves the Dago to the rope with a rush. Dago comes back with a stag gering blow on Smith's face. Dago's eyes show punishment. Round closes with honors pretty even. 2nd ROUND. Kid gets a good blow ill 011 Smith's face and Smith lands lightly with his left. Kid. bracing up, lands on Smith's face, which gets red. Round closes about even. .'Ird ROUND. The boys jumped in to the center of the ring and com menced pegging away in great shape. It was a hot numlier. They clinched but 011 command broke away. Then stood up and were more cautious and neither made a good hit until round closed with honors even. 1th ROUND. Smith gave the Dago a tap 011 the right cheek and following up the blow rushed the Dago onto the ropes in his own corner. Smith reach ed for the Dago's neck and made a good landing. Smith made another pass with his right, but missed and fell down. Smith lauded several blows on the Dago's face and the round ended with honors even and referee decided it a draw, which was a very just deeis j sion. The boys handle the gloves well and each one did his best. Smith was the lighter of the two, but he rushed the i fighting. The Kid is not as quick as ' Smith, but he held his own all the way through. Smith seemed the more tired of the two when the bout closed. At the close of the contest lietween the Kid and Smith "llabe" Chancy did some dancing to the time of the music of the orchestra which was fine and turned the crowd wild with enthusiasm. There is something about dancing that pleases everybody, and it don't make any difference whether it is a man or woman. Good clog or skirt dancing never gets old and never will. The artist, for "Babe" is an artist in dancing, was handicapped by the resin which had been sprinkled on the floor, and she made it a short dance. The people were drawn to the Douglas City Music Hall to see McLaughlin and Gallagher and the time had ar rived for their appearance. Of course everybody knew that Kid Gallagher was a good one, but Mc was unknown, 110 one seemed to know anything about him. It was 12:1.1 when Kid Gallagher and McLaughlin took seats in the ring. Gallagher had won the toss for cor ners and took the one most distant from the door. Jack Fletcher was cho sen referee and each contestant named a time-keeper. "Shake hands," said referee Fletcher and the two fellows advanced to the center of the riug and obeyed the or der. 1st ROUND. Time was called and the first part of the round was a hot number. Both men got iti their work very rapidly. The Kid would tap Me lon the face and Mc. would return the compliment. Both men landed good blows on the face and IhhIv. One of tlu? latter near tho end of the round surprised Mo. rery much. Honors about even. '2nd ROUND. Mo lands with his right on tlio Kid's face. Ho trios to ro piest but falls short. Again ho lands on tho Kid and tho Kid wont down on tlio lloor and Mo laughed. Mo. landod hard 0:1 tho Kid's head and for a wliilo just pouudod him on tho lioad and ho siMunod to enjoy it. Thoy olinohod and tlio Kid wont down on tho rn|M?s. This round was notorious for clinchos and tho roferoo had trouble in keeping thorn apart. The round ended with about an even show down, a littlo in favor of Mo if thoro was any difforonce. ?iivi linrvn Mi? 11 ?r 1 flu* fluid inc and t li<* Kid was on the defensive. Me. landed on the Kid's face and lie tried to retaliate, hut his blow fell short and from the force of it he fell to the floor. There wasn't much done in this round, but. such as it was. was in favor of Me. 4th ROUND. Mc. landed a Imdy blow with his right, then landed one on Kid's face followed by two more. The Kid slip|xid and fell under the ropes. The Kid landed good and hard on Mc's face and after fid dling round the ring and laughing the round ended with honors alxiut even. 5th ROUND. Mc landed on t he Kill's face three or four times. He did some fine floor work in this round. The Kid lands three Rood blows and Mc return ed the compliment. Mc was surprising his friends with his shiftiness on the floor and the work he was doing. Oth ROUND. Mc landed on the Kid's face. The Kid warms up and lands blow after blow oti the head and face of Mc. "(?ood,"says Mc. and gave the Kid a left jab in the face, and the round ends with things nearly even. 7th ROUND. This round started with pair of good taps on the Kid's face by Mc. Kid landed hard on Me.'a face and slipped and fell backwards. The Kid again lands on Mc.'s face and body getting the lienetit. Mc. retali ates with some daisy landings and it was Mc.'s round. 8th ROUND. Me. lands his right and left on the Kid's face, follows it up with a light tap and once more catches the Kid in the same place. Then they liecome cautious and do no effective work for some time. The Kid breaks the monotony by punching Mc in the face aud Me says "good." Then they tiddled around to the end of the round and honors were about even. nth ivuuisu. iuc. spaiiea i\hi m face and both exchanged Mows of all kinds in rapid succession. Me. gets a punch that sends him onto the ropes. Me. lauds on the Kid's Ixwiy and the Kid gives him oue lietter and lands heavily on Me.'s face and body. It. was nip and tuck, probably a little in the Kid's favor. 10th ROUND, The Kid starts things rolling with a good body blow on Me, and follows it with one on the head and another on the face, and then rush - es his big antagonist into the Kid's cor ner. They spar for an owning. The Kid gets it and lets fly on Mc's head and body. Mc looked tired and the round ended decidedly in favor of the Kid. 11th ROUND. Mc led the fighting f CONTINUED ON EIGHTH PAGE.)
