Cincinnati, Auguit 20.?In the Sullivan-McCaffrey
contest to-day, at Chester
Park, considerable time was spent in
choosing a referee. Conferences between
Messrs. Lunt and O'Brien, McCaffrey's
seconds, ?nd those of Sullivan, were held.
William Tate, of Toledo, Ohio, was called
[or, but he declined. Subsequently be
reconsidered and accepted, and at 5:21
the men shook hands, and the first round
began amid almost breathless stillness.
McCaffrey made the first lead, but8ullivau
stopped him easily, and in the
cautious work which followed both succeeded
in setting in slight blows. McCaffrey
ducked to- avoid a blow, and as
he arose struck wildly at Sullivan and was
pressed to the ropes, where he fell to his
knee. Rising, they clinched, Sullivan

as they did so. This was repented and
the round doted.
. Second, ronnd?'There waa hot a minute's
breathing spell. Sullivan opened
the fight this time by a blow, which McCaffrey
arlfnlly evaded. McCaflrey then
made n tierce drive at Sullivan, which lie
lodged gracefully,' but McCaffrey gave
him a resounding tap on the back el the.
Deck as he recovered, which: started a
chorus of cheers. 'Another of the same
kind, set McOaffiry's admirers T?ild;? A
clinch followed, Sullivan getting another
blow on McCatTrey. He then pushed MoDaffrey
to the ropes, where danger seemed
imminent, but McCaffrey slipped away,

bnt to no purpose, and in the quick work
that iollowed McCaffrey slipped down.
Sullivan'then: began to push McCaflrey,
and tbe latter took up the tactics of running
away, bnt finally made a stroke wliich

Sullivan closed on McCatlreyaud pressed
him down, firowing apparently vicious,
he drove McCaffrey towards his own corner^ancLpwhed
him across:the ropes.
Here some one called time,: and, many
thought the round 'had closed, " but'tho
referee told the men to go on. and the;,
did, Sullivan driving McCaffrey over to
his comer; where, the latter fell; either by
Sullivan's blow or tripping againstaobair

round with a blow on McCaffrey's jaw. It
looked as i? McCaffrey's powers were wautag,--while
Sullivan was apporeutly freab.

clung to Sullivan. 8ulllvan managed

light blow in on Sullivan. Then Sullivan

latter returned the attack, which Sullivan
escaped by bis favorite method of docking.
"After more play, with ho work, the
time expired.
Sixth round?Sullivan now seemed desperate,
though It was apparent that he
was growing weary whilo McCaffrey wan
fresher. Sullivan doeed and they gave a
number of lu-blows and separated. Sullivan
kept poshing his adversary around,
and when near the ropes they clincbod
and both fell. Arising, Sullivan cloeed
again, but this time McCaffrey got away

on Sullivan, who tent a terrifff blow back,

Fight and tli?i Contestant*.
After the last round a shout went up
from the vast crowd," which by this time
eemed to havoawelled to 7,000, in honor
of McCaffrey, whom they all supposed .had
won the match. He had atood np against
Sullivan through six rounds, and seemed
able and willing-to go on to a finish. He
wii overwhelmed, with congratulations,
while Sullivan win left to-be cared for by
his stage attendants only, it the crowd
understood the terms it waa a draw, and
thna a virtual victory for the young Pittsburgh
boxer. Bat after some time, when
three-fourths of the people had started for
tho train, and while the remainder were in
loud diairai8ori of the meritsof the match,
Mr. -Mnldoou made an announcement,
which only a few heard, that the referee
had dedded to give tho'matcbi to Sullivan
on the ground ^that'tohadmade the
greater numberofpoint*. Thia announcement
was wholly, inaudible at the preta
seats, and vationa versions of it wcre circulated,
among others, that it was given
because of a fonl.
Sullivan left the platform with no demonstration
in his honor, but McCaffrey's
referee's adverse decision, andthevllfted
him to their shoulder* sntf.l&reWm smid
the cheers of thespectstors to his carrisge.
The decialonwas decidedly unpopular,
owing to the doubtful understanding of

that Sullivan was to knock JlcCaflfey out
in alx rounda, or Jew, in order to win/and
McCaffrey himself anted alter the match

wanted to eo on to a finUh, but that was
impoaible, aa Sullivan had left the platform.
Being asked if there waa any ground
for a claim tor a foul, in that he had kicked
