Mr. Conger says the Filpinos are
better marksmen and arc not so easy
to capture as at first. However,
nothing con be accomplished by
either side, if not done before the

The Greatest Contest of
Recent Years.
Macon's Comment on the
Big Fight.
Ruhlin Matched Against the
Irish "Champ."
Baseball Games Played Saturday
Sporting News.
The fight between Gus Ruhlin and
Peter Malier at the Lenox athletic
club, in New York, will go down in
pugilistic history as one of the great
est of heavy weight contests.
Macon, in commenting on the fight
hChe Enquirer, says the following:
'Thoso who could, but didn't, see
the, fight between Peter Maher aud
Gus Ruhlin before the Lenox club
last Tuesday night will only regret
the failure once and that will be as
long as they lh e, for it was, far and
away,-the best heavy weijjht contest
ever -fought under Queensberry rules.
As the advertisement writers say
; about funny farces, 'there wasn't a
i dull moment in it,' and when it was
over and Charley White's verdict, 'a
draw, was proclaimed, the happy
j 5,000 lovers of fistic" sport who wit
nessed it were radiant with delight.
"How human flesh could stand the
buffeting each man was giving and
taking was a wonder, to the specta
tors. A dozen times it ieemed as
though" the end would come the
next moment, but either the gong
would prevent or the men would
spar a moment fo: wind aud unex
pectedly freshen up. That each had
trained hard and well was shown by
thcway they endured their fearful
punishment and the . quickness
with which they recuperated from
it. Matter's face was a fearful sight.
No such visage was ever seen in a
ring since the old days of the Lon
don rules, and no caricature of a
beaten mug in .i comic paper was
ever half as bad as it. Ruhliu's
countenance was also badly disfig
uied, but his body under his heart
and left "ribs were as raw and as red
as beefsteak. Still Maher was the
aggressor, but neither man had
agility enough left to plant a knock
out blow. '1 wish it could be ended
now,' said Martin Dowling during
the fight. 'It's anybody's battle
and a chance hit may decide it. I
like boxing as well as any man, but
this is too hard for me.' I confess T
felt as Dowling did." -
''In order to reinvigorate them
each man Vas plentifully dosed with
whisky between the rounds. Ruhlin
was given the most. He was miser
ablv seconded. Most of tho time ho
was allowed to sit bolt upright, with
no rest for his back, and it was not
until about the twelfth round tliat
his legs.were stretched out and rub
bed. He was hardly allowed a mom
ent for breathing. He was either
being dosed with tea or whisky or
made lo suck a piece of lemon. This
treatment called out very stioug
' nntnmfintR frnm Tninmv Rmn. Snm-
my Kelly and'.Iack Daly, while Billy
Delaney manifested his disgust at
such handling in language that
would hardly do to print.
"I saw Mahar in his room five
minutes after the end. He was a
horrible looking object and he com
plained greatlyof pain in hiAift arm
near his elbow. Some parties who
came out of Ruhliu's room told me
that he was acting like a c,ra.y man.
1 presume the large amount of liquor
be had taken somewhat affected his.
head. He rose visibly in the esti
mation of the spectators aud many
weie of Jim Jeffrie,-, V opinion that
Sharkey's punch, whiclr knocked
him out at Coney Island uashuta
lucky fluke."
Ruhlin Matched Again.
Billy Madden, Huhlin's manager,
I has made another important match
ifor his protege. .
A special from New York says:
Gus Ruhlin has practically been
matched to meet Mike Morrissey,
I the heavyweight fighter of Ireland.
who is at present on his way to this
l country. The men. will hex a 20-
round bout at the Lenox Athletic
club either in June or July.
Mike Morrissey, the heavyweight
champion of Ireland, is enroute to
this country. It had been intended
to match him -against Malier, but
because of Ruhliu's splendid show
ing last Tuesday night, he has been
selected to meet the scrapper from
tho Emerald Isle.
