THE FISTIC ARENA.
The "Belfast Spider" Meets His Fate. FOURTEEN ROUNDS ENOUGH. Billy Murphy Was Too "Fly" for Him—The Sullivan-Jackson Match Assured. I Associated Press Dispatches to the Hkrald. San Francisco, January 13.—The fight to a finish between Ike Weir, tbe "Belfast Spider," featherweight cham pion of the world, and Billy Murphy, featherweight champion of Australia, took place at the California Athletic Club tonight. Before the fight President Fulda an nounced that John L. Sullivan had agreed with an accredited representative of the club on a purse for which he would meet Peter Jackson in the last fight of his life. The amount was $15,000, and Jackson had accepted the terms. By unanimous vote the club an nounced its approval of the proposition to empower the directors to make the match. Jimmy Foley, of Boston, and Frank Olover, of Chicago, were Weir's seconds; Paddy Gorman and Martin Murphy were Murphy's seconds; Hiram Cook was referee. Weir's weight was announced as Murphy's as 118&. Time was called at 8:35 p. m. The men started in at a lively pace, Murphy's body blows being met by Weir's rapid undercutting. The first round ended with Weir slipping to the floor from Murphy's rally. In the second Murphy reached Weir's nose, and was caught by the neck and punished by uppercuts, causing his nose to bleed. From the third to the eighth round Murphy swung his right ineffectually, in return receiving at close quarters Weir's left full in the face, with astonishing rapidity. In the fifth round the men fought each other from corner to corner, Murphy avoiding Weir's rushes when ever possible. Weir's antics and clever fighting created great amusement. In the sixth round Weir landed a sounding right-hander on the Australian's ribs, and after some by-play received a stag gerer on the right jaw that nearly floored him. In the seventh, Weir got a light tip on the nose that brought a trace of blood. Murphy landed heavily on Weir'a ribs. In the eighth Weir was brought to the floor by a right-hander on the neck; as he slipped Murphy nearly knocked him out by a right-hander, while lighting furiously. « In the ninth Weir again fell while tap ping Murphy lightly on the breaßt. Murphy tried to pen the "Spider" in his corner, out the latter evaded him each time, and Murphy would go spinning around the ring. He appeared red and nncomfortable, while the ''Spider" was still cool and confident. From tbe ninth to the twelfth round little effective fighting was done. In the twelfth the Spider swung his right with telling effect on Murphy's left ear and jaw, again planting his right and left in the Australian's - eye as he came on fiercely. Murphy's left eye was bleeding freely. In the twelfth he fought desperately, and drove Weir through the ropes and around tbe ring. In the thirteenth round there was one of-the greatest surprises ever seen in the club rooms. Murphy came up almost hopeless, but fought fiercely. He landed right-handers on Wier's bead that stag gered him, and in a minute was apt n him, swinging uppercuts with his right, Bending the Spider down eigbt times in rapid succession. Twice the latter w s nearly counted out, but rose with tbe last second, and with a courage born of desperation, planted his right feebly on Murphy's ear, only to go down. In the fourteenth round both men, though apparently too groggy to stand, • came promptly up for the, last round. It was a short one. Murphy again led, Weir countered, and in a second received another blow that sent him down and decided his fate. He writhed in agony for ten seconds, and when he rose at the call of time he was holding his righi wrist painfully with his left, claiming tc have broken it. Murphy, though show ing more signs of punishment thai Weir, and at one time nearly knockeu out, freshened wonderfully in the last round, and jumped lightly from the ring at the end of the fight. Weir was seen in his dressing-room after the fight, and, though in consider able pain, showed little outward signs of punishment beyond a swollen wrist and lips. His hand, which was believed to be broken, sustained nothing more seri ous than a sprain. He expressed him self as at a loss ; s to how he lost the fight, beyond the statement (in which President Fulda concurs) that he re ceived a blow in the wind in the thir teenth round that sickened him, so that he lost his ability to withstand Murphy's blows on the head.

The remarkable effect of Hood's Sarsaparllla in tho following case illustrates the power of this medicine over all blood diseases: "My son, 7 years old, had a white swelling come on his right leg below the knee, which con tracted the muscles so that his leg was drawn up at right angles, l'hysicians lanced the swelling, which discharged freely, but did not help him materially. I considered him A Confirmed Cripple. I was about to take him to Cincinnati for an op eration, expecting his leg would have to be taken off, and began giving him Hood's Sarsaparilla in order to get up his strength. The medicine woke np his appetite, and soon pieces of bone were discharged from the sore. Wo continued with Hood's Sarsaparilla, as it seemed to be doing him so much good, and the discharge from the sore decreased, the swelling went down, the leg straightened out, and In a few months he had perfect use of his leg. ne is now apparently at well as ever."
