He Defeated Peter Maher in the Fifth
Superior Science of the Kid Proved a Great Help in the
Battle—Long Wrangle Over the Selection of a Ref
eree—Both Men Were Confident of Victory—Rec
ords of the Two Pugilists—There Were Several
Knockdowns During the Encounter of Today.
Ringside, Coney Island Sporting Club,
Jan. 1.—The Maher-McCoy fight which is
to take place here this afternoon has
brought a fairly large gathering of the
sporting element to the island, but the
cold weather made a great many late In
arriving. There was a generous sprink
ling of out-of-town sports abong the
crowd. Maher was a pronounced favor
ite in the betting at 100 to 70. The betting
has fluctuated a little slightly In Mc
Coy's favor. Several bets were made on
Maher at 100 to 80. The seconds for the
men will be as fellows: For Maher Pet
er Lowrey, Spike Sullivan and Jimmy
Maher. For McCoy, Homer Selby, Jimmy
Deforest, Mike Sullivan and Frank Hart.
The betting is now even money, McCoy
money being so much in evidence as to
forree the price to this point.
It is now 3:40 and the crowd is becom
ing Impatient. It is 11 minutes afte>r the
scheduled time for the men to enter the
ring, and there is no sign of them. The
squabble over the referee is probably the
cause of the delay. Another reason for
the delay In the appearance of the men
is being circulated. It is to the effect t,hat
the purse money has not been put up as
yet, although the club officials claim that
it was put up yesterday. McCoy is now
the favorite at 10 to 6.
Wm. Brady and two other representa
tives of the club where both McCoy and
Maher are stopping have made good the
purse. The men are ready to come to the
club house, the only deterring factor be
ing the dispute as to the referee.
Charles White has been selected as
referee. Both men enter the ring. Mc
Coy gives his weight at 163, Maher 172.
The men have agreed to fight for the
grass receipts of the house, about 316,000.
The principals are wrangling over the
gloves. McCoy insists on wearing his own
gloves. The referee is determined both
men shall wear the gloves furnished by
the club. The spectators are very impa
The announcer has explained to the
multitude that McCoy refuses to wear
other Chan his own gloves and that Ma
her will not. consent to fight unless the
kid dons the club's gloves.
The referee gave MtcCby ten minutes to
comply with his orders. McCoy backs
down und dons club's gloves.
Round 1.—The men shook hands at 5:17.
The Kid Immédiat el y took offensive. The
Kid feiinitcd with his left. Then led a
left hook to tihe jaw, flooring Maher.
Maher was up in two seconds. The Kid

attempt to return the blow, slipped and
ft'll bult regained his feett quickly. They

ropes where he put a niglhlt on the Kid's
Round 2.—Both came up laughing.
They mixed it up. Miaher landing right
and left to the body. In breaking away
Maher put a leflt to the body. COming
together again the Klid landed on the ja.w,
putting Mother to his hands and knees.
Maher was up in four seconds.
Maher forced the Kid to the ropes and
the Kid slipped to the floor. As soon as
he got up he sent a left 'to Maher's face
sending his head back. The Kid sent
two leflüs to the jaw. following with a
right which turned Maher's head side
ways as the gong sounded.
Round 3.—Peter forced the Kid to the
ropes but the latter hooked a left to the
Jaw and escaped a return. Twice the
Kid jabbed the left to Maher's stomach.
They came to a clinch, each landing light
rigti.lts to the ribs. The Kid sent two
left hooks to the Jaw which sent Maher
back and forward with another which
knocked the big fellow three yard's back. '
They came to a clinch but in the break
the Kid secit a straight right to the face
and beEy. Muher tried to mïx It up and
force the Kid to the ropes but the Kid ;
foughit back. I
Round 4.—Maher forced McCoy to a
neutral comer and landed a left on the
face, jarfling McCoy. McCoy stepped to
the left and Peter struck out with his left
but fell short. In the mix-up peter got a
light to the head and McCoy was cau- '
Honed for ho'ding. McCoy hooked a left
to the face and Peter followed with a left
on the body. Maher Jabbed.a left straight
in the face at close quarters without re
turn. The Kid broke ground repeatedly. 1
Peter chasing the Kid sent a left to the
face, but Peter hooked two 1'fts to the
head and then used Vs left twice more to
the Kid's head while McCoy Jabbed the
'eft to the wind. They carne to a clinch in
which Peter was cautioner] for holding,
but at the same time he sent a left hook
to the Kid's face. This was maker's round
Round 5.—Peter forced the pace. Both
landed lefts to the head. Then Peter
sent another left to the face, the Kid
countering. Peter shot a left to Ithe
throat and tried to cross with the right
but missed. Maher led, McOoy landed
two hard lefts on the jgiw. McCoy
crossed the right over <to the point of the
Jaw. Peter was fofleed to a clinch.
McCtoy dropped the big fellow with a left
swing on the jaw. Maher was counted
ouit. Time of round two minutes 22 sec
New York, Jan. 1.—For their battle at
Coney Island, which means so much to
each in a pugilistic way, Charles, bet
ter known as "Kid" McCoy and Peter
Maher of Ireland were in perfect physi
cal condition, the result of six weeks of
training. Both Maher and McCoy con
cluded their preparations for the battle
yesterday with mild exercise. All the
box seats were disposed of. While the
crowd was as large as that which wit
nessed the Fltzslmmons-Jeftries and
Sharkey-Jeffries fights, the receipts were
not so large, as the prices asked tor the
tickets were much smaller.
Maher left his training quarters near
the Morris Park track at 10 o'clock this
morning and immediately went to Coney
Island, where he remained until called to
enter the ring. McCoy started from
White Plains for Coney Island at 9
o'clock. He made his headquarters at a
hotel near the Coney Island club house.
This was a fight concerning the pro
bable outcome of which any of the ex
perts would speak with any degree of po
sitiveniss. There is nothing in the past
to throw any light on what may happen
Mahar is a new man, a cleverer, strong
er, better conditioned man than he ever
was at any previous stage of his ring ca
McCoy, the most skilled fighter in the
world, lias gained what he thinks he al
ways lacked—weight. The Maher of to
day is not the Maher who was beaten by
FRzsimmons and Goddard. For the first
time in his life, Peter has trained hard for
a fight. He is married and he has settled
down to work seriously. He has not been
burdened with facts, fancies or theories,
and he has not worried about his weight.
Over McCoy. Maher had whatever ad
vantages go with greater weight and
height, but the kid outreached him and
this alone in the reach, coupled with his
superior skill, he counted as a winning
combination. But he was no more confi
dent of the success of this combination
than Maher was of triumphing by his
greater weight and strength and what he
believed to be his harder hitting powers.
When it comes to punching there are not
many men, if indeed there be any, who
can punch harder than Maher. It w'as
McCoy's constant endeavor to guard his
Jaw- and body carefully and try to Jab
his opponent to helplessness.
In looks Maher and McCoy wore fit to
fight or a kingdom. Each was confident
that he was in condition to battle for the
purse of 320,000.
In a statement last night Maher said:
"I will defeat McCoy In about ten rounds
of our battle at Coney Island tomorrow
afternoon. This is a pretty confident pre
diction to make but I don't really think
It will be necessary to battle any longer
than that time to prove my superiority
over the kid. I suppose If other boxers
were as confident of winning as I am
they would probably call the turn on two
or three rounds.
"One reason that I predict that It will
be a short battle is because I expect to
score a knockout. It may come off in
the first few rounds, but it is safe betting
that the story will be told before the tenth
has been reached.
"It is the general opinion that I will
have difficulty In reaching the kid. To
me it Is not a question of the number of
blows. One blow will be enough and I
think I can afford to take one of ihe kid's
light taps to send a good one home. I
Intend to force the fighting from the
start. The kid does not like to fight fast.
He would rather stand off and do some
of his pretty Jabbing. There will be no
Jabbing In this fight. McCoy will have to
fight me.
'I intend to mix it up and if McCoy can
defeat me at that game he Is welcome to
the fight. I know McCoy will try to k< e;i
away from me by his ducking and side
stepping. but he cannot keep this up long.
I will give him more than he can send, no
matter what methods he may employ. If
I defeat McCoy I will be ready for Jeffries
or any of the other heavyweights. But I
suppose they don't want any of my
Kid McCoy said: "Well, It will be all
over in a few hours and we will know
who was correct in their predictions al
though in my mind there is no doubt as
to the result. Those who have bet on me
will surely get a run for their money be
fore the battle is over. I feel more and
mare confident of victory as the time for
ns-to enter the ring draws near and, bar
ring accidents, I think I will win in a
"I am trained to the hour and prepared
to put un a hard battle. I don't, however,
bank on an extended argument, as I am
Of the opinion that the bout will be short,
decisive and in my favor.
"The fact that I expect to defeat Maher
should not be taken that I underestimate
Ohe Irishman. I know what he can do and
taJce him for what he is worth. I have
studied his methods and have come to the
conclusion that I am the better man and
only long for the tap of the gong to call
us to the center of the ring.
'"Phis talk about Maher stopping me
by a punch is all well enough, but better
fighters than the Irishman have failed
to dc^ the trick. While Maher may be
fairly clever and a terrific hitter, he is
not what you would call a scientific fight
er. He is more of a slugger and today I
will prove to him that he Is far from a
champion when it comes down to real
elevej fighting."

But Were Later Rescued by
Their Comrades,
And His Men Refused to Leave Him
—The Success ol This Little Party
Raises the Hopes of the British
London, Jan. 1.—Owing to the lack of
news from important points, interest in
the war centers on the comparatively un
important skirmishing near Dordrecht.
Captain Montmerency's sortie with a pa
trol of 120 men of the Twenty-first Lanc
ers and his retreat December 30th, were
followed the next day hy a successful
British engagement and the rescue of a.
small party supposed to be men Captain
Montmorency left behind him. Under
Captain Goldsworthy a force of 12-5 men
with four guns accompanied by Captain
Montmorency's scouts sallied out of
Dordrecht during the morning of De
cember 31st, to relieve Lieutenant Turner
and twenty-seven men left over night at
Laonshagns. The Boers were driven back
and Lieutenant Turner's party was res
cued. Eight Boers and thirteen horses
are known to have bien killed.
The Times in its second edition pub
lishes a dispatch from Sterkstrom, dated
December 31, which says:
"Captain Montmorency's scouts are cut
oft owing to their refusel to leave a
wounded officer, Lieutenant Warren, of
Brabantshorse. These men under Lieu
tenants Milford and Turner of the fron
tier mounted rifles defended themselves
most gallantly against the repeated at
tacks of some 800 Boers. The enemy re
sorted to snipping during the night but
were repulsed with loss. At 5; 15 this
morning Captain Goldsworthy with the
Cape mounted rifles arrived and the ene
my fled to the hills. Turner's party, whose
horses had nearly all been killed, were
) rescued. They displayed splendid pluck
and the brilliant manner in which Cap
tain Goldsworthy effected their relief on
I his own responsibility is deserving of
tile highest praise, dur loss was two
j men wounded. The Boers loss about
thirty men including eight men killed."
I Another account says: "The success of
this little i>arty will arrest the progress
; of the enemy's recruiting in that vicinity.
, A dispatch from the Modder river says
' December 3i the naval guns planted a few
! excellent »hells without reply. The ene
J my's position on the left is apparently
i considerably weakened."
j But neither Modder river nor the Frere
camps send any news tending lo show an
impending change in the. existing im
passe, nor confirming Hie impression
created by yesterday's dispatches that
General Huiler meditated an immediate
i forward movement.
: Count Gleichen of the Grenadier guards
land a distant relative of men Victoria,
who was wounded at the battle of Modder
river, has recovered from his wound and
has left Capetown for the front.
A Capetown dispatch dated Sunday
December .'list, published in the second.
, edition of the Times says:
"For the moment there is a general lull
in active military operations pending the
arrival or General Roberts. It is general
ly hoped that he will, for some time at
hast, direct the op nations from here.
I The absene of General Huiler, however!
unavoidably, lias left the colony without
that central organization and vigorous
j control at headquarters essential to the»
conduct of a campaign along so vast a
I The same correspondent says: "i n view
of the fact that D>\ I.eyds and other Boer
agents seem able to cable freely to Pre
toria the British censorship will be even
stricter henceforth."
A De Ear dispatch dated December
31st, says a mounted patrol has gone from
there and that other arrangements have
been made to prevent looting in that
! neighborhood by small Boer forces.

i Reinberg, Cape Colony. Jan. 1.—General
French has completely defeated the Boers
und occupied Colesburg. The general
continued to keep the Boers on the move
and pressed them closely Saturday and
(Sunday, giving them 110 time to make a
prolonged stand, ami when day broke he
was within striking distance of the ene
my. Last night all the cavalry, artillery
and infantry, the latter riding in wagons
to increase, the general mobility, started
upon a night march, with the object of
turning the Boers right. The flank op
erations were successful. The infantry
and field batteries immediately made a
feint attack on the Boer front, oml while
this was preceding the cavalry and light
artillery got completely around the ene
m.iy's right tlank as arranged. The pro
gram worked without a lilt oh. The Boers
were utterly surprised, and finding their
re:: at thr<atened, lied in disorder to the
eastward, leaving Colesburg in General
French's hands.
