Said to Have Occurred Last Night
East of Richmond.
In the Cincinnati and Hamilton
papers for the past few days the fol
lowing notice appeared :
"Fight at Richmoiad, Tuesday
night, between Jim Fields of Cincin
nati and Hank Griffin.
The advertisement is a modest one.
nevertheless if one could read be
tween the lines it meant a good deal.
Prize fighting is barbarous, and is
not sanctioned by law or good order.
Fights are arranged for quietly and
without much publicity. We under
stand that the fisrht did occur at some
point east of Richmond, and that a
good-sized crowd was present. e
were told that the bout was not very
exciting and that it terminated in
Hank Griffin's favor.
