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
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. C. has postponod Its ten
routvi bout to next Thur'sda*/ night.
|Thls ls only temporarj*. howevor, as
j ihe Fiiifinont A. C, will not ho too

Kelly has nevcr been seen in the
IJast. and as he recently boxod a twen

thero is much interest ln hls appear

from away back. ,

PARIS. February 20.?Sam McVey,
the California libavyweight, and Joe
Joanette, both negro fightera, boxed
twenty roiinds at the Circe dc Paris
to-nig"ht. Nelther of the fightera was
serlously injtired, and both fintshed
without sbowing Sny signs of exhans
tlon. McVey got the declslon on poiuLs.
Thls seemed to satisfy the audlence,
which had been warned by the sport
ing newspapers for several days that
when two negroes fight IL is not llkoly
thnt one will knock the other out
.Ien.notte's hclence and nuiekuess seem?
ed lo be superlor to tbat of Mr-Voy. but
hls b|owa lacked fbrce, McVey had the
power, but laeked the ability to profit
by lt.
In the fourteenth round, Joe aaved
himself by continued hugglng, at whleh
tho spoctators hooted aud y'elled "tbat's
wrostllng, not boxing." Cllnchea wero
tho main feature of the Inst two
rounds, and tho matbh left many of the
spoctators convinced that Lhe fightera
were awaltlng u second contest to
show thelr real powers.
Another meeting between theso two
