Show That Clilcngo Is Losing Its
Prestige as n. Groin Center.
A Burlington official states that the
movement of corn on that line Is now about
equally divided between Chicago and the
Gulf ports. Railroad officials say that
1 "" ihre Is more corn going around Chicago
than is coming to It, the Southern Atlantic
ports Baltimore, Newport News and Nor
folkgetting the benefit. New Orleans is
Btlll leading all ports in the corn export
trade. Twenty-seven million bushels
cleared from that port in the first eleven
months of this year; from Galveston, 8,613,
000, at both ports, 2S.9S3.000 bushels In ex
cess of last year. Newport News and Nor
folk have not suffered, but for the same
time have exported 27,000,000 bushels, an-in-t
lease of over 19.000,000 bushels over last
j ear. Baltimore has made some gains, ex
porting 30,000.000 bushels, against 23,000,000
bushels the first eleven months of 1S33.

MAHERION WITH ONE PUNCH
WHIPPED STEVE O'DONNELL
Rent the Australian Down "With n,
Shower of Hard Blows Race
NVinncrs at New Orleans
nnd San Francisco.
New York, Dec. 23 It took just twenty
seven seconds' tlmo for Peter Maker, tho
Irish pugilist, to again demonstrate his su
periority in ring tactics and hard hitting
qualities over Steve O'Donnell, the Aus
tralian boxer, in the arena of the Greater
New York Athletic Club, at Coney Island.
Both men were in excellent condition and
trained to tho hour. Each of them was
confident, but Maher's backers made him a
hot favorite by laing odds ranging from
3 to 5 to 1 on the Irishman's chances of
Trom tho outset Maher never left tho re
sult in doubt. He rushed at O'Donnell the
moment the referee called time, and O Don
noil assumed the defensive. The big Aus
tralian led his left for Maher's body, but tho
Irishman blocked the blow with his right
hand glove. Then Maher sent his left to
tho chin and swung again with his left on
the face. Ho put O'Donnell to tho floor a
second later with a left on tho chin, and,
after the Australian regained his feet, Ma
her landed a left smash on the jaw, follow
ing U quickly with a left half-hook, which
sent O'Donnell down In a heap.
Stevo rolled over on his back in a help
less condition and the referee slowly count
ed him out. The big Irishman stood about
twelve feet away from his fallen opponent
whllo the referee was counting oft the sec
onds, and as soon as the refereo tallied ten
a tremendous shout went up from the 1.S00
people who had watched the brief en
counter, and the band played "Tho Wear
ing of the Green" in honor of the victor.
Thirteen months ago Maher and O'Don
nell met at the Empire Athletic Club, Mas
peth, L. I., and on that occasion Maher
knocked out the Australian In slty-three
seconds. Since that time O'Donnell and his
followers havo frequently said that Steve
would not rest content until ho had another
try at Peter.
O'Donnell was tho fifst to enter the ring
Ho climbed through the ropes at 3 30
o'clock, clad in a gray colored bath robe.
His seconds were Sam Fltzpatrick, Billy
Madden, Mike Butler and Gus Ruhlin, the
Canton, O , giant. When Maher emerged
from his dressing room five minutes later
a cheer went up which shook the building.
As soon a3 he got Into the ring Maher
bowed his ack low ledgment for the warm
welcome extended to him, and he never
looked better In his life. He was escorted
by Peter Lowry of Dublin, Pete Burns of
Harlem, Ills' sparring partner, and Jack
Qulnn of Brooklyn. Maher when weighed
tipped the scales at lTT-and O'Donnell at
181. The men shook hands at 3:46 and Ref
eree Alec Brown lost no time in bringing
them together. There was a dead silence
in the house when the men put up their
fists and Maher rushed across the ring al
most to O'Donnell's corner. Both sparred
for a fow seconds and O'Donnell led his
left for the body, but Maher blocked the
blow with his right glove. Peter then
jabbed his left hard on tho chin and land
ed a heavy left swing on the face. This
staggered O'Donnell and ho seemed to be
unable to avoid Peter's rushes.
Maher sent O'Donnell to the floor with a
hard left on the chin and tho Australian
staed down four seconds.
As soon as he got to his feet O'Donnell
assumed a defensive attitude, but Peter
quickly sent his left once moro on the chin
and ns O'Donnell was falling, caught him
quickly with a left half hook, kndcktng
the Australian down and out. O'Donnell
was counted out according to the rules,
and Sam Fltzpatrick ana Madden, assisted
by Lowry, carried him to his corner.
As soon as it was seen that the Irishman
had won a tremendous shout went up, and
the spectators rose as one man to their
feet, and hats, caps and umbrellas were
thrown into the air. The official timer told
the announcer that the time of the con
test was ninety seconds, but John J. Qulnn,
of Pittsburg, who was keeping timo for
Maher, as well as many others, who held
watches on tho contest, declared tho actual
timo to be 27 seconds.
Beforo the spectators left it was an
nounced that in all probability the next
contest to be brought oft in tho Greater
New York Club would Be between Peter
Maher and Tom Sharkey. Maher will leavo
for Pittsburg to-morrow, and to-morrow
night will spar with Joe Choynski at that

WASS0N W0NJHE BIG SHOOT.
Handicap Sweep at Wnnhington Parle
Yesterday Offered Excell
While the attendance at the Christmas
day handicap sweepstakes shoot at Wash
ington park yesterday were not as large as
was looked for, the goodly number of
sportsmen who participated in the event
enjoyed tho shooting thoroughly, as the
day was almost an ideal one for the sport
and the birds furnished for tho occasion
were an excellent lot.
The entries in the big sweepstakes at
J12 50 each were fourteen in number, and of
these eleven shot out the full twent-tive
birds, thrco withdrawing after missing
enough birds to put them outside the mon
ey. The winner of the sweep proved to be
George Wnsson, who shot in great form
from the thlrt ard mark, losing only his
fourth bird, a difficult driver, and finishing
with the fine score of 24 kills. W. H. Mc
Gee, who shot from the twenty-eight ard
mark, lost but two birds, and won second
money with 23, while Dave Elliott, who
shot from the thirty ard mark, was one
bird behind McGee, winning third money
with 22 kills. First money amounted to
$56 SO; second money to $31 10, and third
money to $23.75.
