GALLAGHER WINS ON A FOUL.
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
: 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
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
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.
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
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
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.
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
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
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
"Shake hands," said referee Fletcher
and the two fellows advanced to the
center of the riug and obeyed the or
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
'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.

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.

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
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
