[Speclal to The Tltnes-Diepatch.] NKW YORK, February 20.?All New Y'ork talked to-day of tho sensational ten-ro.und hattio between Jcrn Drlscoli and Abo Attell. whlch took place at tho Natlonal Academy Frlday night. Pi'od nt-ly no glovo contest in years caused such a wlde ? dlfference of oplnion among' sporting men. To uu unprejti diced observed, competent to judge tlie respectlve merlts of th'o boxcrs, tuere waa nothlng to lt but Drlscoli. In : polnt of quiukness, head work, accu raey und gencralshlp, the Welshman I had Attell clearly beaten; yet along . Broadway to-day mitny persons could ; bo found who wero lnslstunt in declar ! ing that Attell won "'by a. mlle." In I almost every case, however, these per j sons were either infiuenced by the bets they made agalnst Drlscoli. which they | were anxious to save, or wero in direet ; Bympathy wlth tho American eham plon. Tblukn Abc Won. Torn O'Rourke, who was in Attell's j corner, tor lnstance, deciared thnt Abo ! won ln a walk. O'Rourke'a oplnion as a rule is worthy of passlng notlce, be j cause of his long oxperience wlth pugl r lists, but In this caso he was govcmed solely by a personal grlevance. Before Drlscoli camo to America O'Rourko trled to obtaln the management of the clever Brlton, but Charley Harvoy got ahead of Slr Thomaa. Then, When Drlscoli arrlved here, O'Rourke declared that he wa3 not a hlgh-class "feather," and to prove thls assertion Sir Thomaa became Attell's chlef advisor ln the big bout. It was natural, therefore, for O'Kourke to claim a victory, -but abso lutely fulr-mlnded observcrs?and thero were hundreds of them?were positlvo that Drlscoli hau a formldublo lead on points when the bout ended. but the fact that there was no ref eree's declslon and no kuockout leavos the questlon ot' whlch ls tho world'a feaUierweight chaniplon sllll in doubt. Ilmit PoNtponed. Because Ifugo Kelly and Joe Thomaa wanted two more days to train, the Falrmont A.
