The "Belfast Spider" Meets
His Fate.
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
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
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." John L. McMubray, Notary Pub
