GAMEST HEAVY-WEIGHT CONTEST t OF THE GENERATION. An American and an Englishman Fight 106 Rounds for the Interna tional Championship on French Soil. LONDON, December 19.-The interna tional contest between Jake Kilrain of Baltimore, and Jein Smith of England, for a diamond belt and the championship of the world, took place on the island of Saint Pierre, in the river Seine, France, to day, in the presence of about 100 persons. G. W. Atkinson, referee, performed his duties with satisfaction to all concerned. Smith was seconded by Jack Baldock and I Harper, and was attended by Jem Howes and Dick Roberts. Kilrain was seconded by Charley Mitchell and Ned Donnelly, t and was attended by Charley Rowell. i Messrs. Fleming and Harding acted as time keepers and umpires. The party in cluded lord de Clifford, marquis of Queensbury, Sir Hugh Drummond, Hon. M. Sandys and captain Leicharber. An excellent ring was pitched. Kilrain fought at 184 pounds and Smith at 180. Smith's castor was thrown into the ring and was immediately followed by Kil rain's beaver. The fight commenced at 2 P. M. and it was A LIVELY AND ENERGETIC BATTLE. For the first three rounds there was a 1 quick give and take, with close sparring. In the fourth round Kilrain got in, giving Smith a smash on the ear, which appear ed to stun him. In the wrestling, which formed a feature of a number of rounds Smith was no match for the American. He had the worst of every fall, Kilrain I each time coming down hard on his pros trate foe. THE BETTING WAS ON SMITH at the start, veering to Kilrain later. In the 18th round Kilrain hit Smith on the left ear, causing a swelling the size of an egg and knocking him down. Kilrain's right eye was closed. The flight varied until the 15th round, when Kilrain led un til the 19th. knocking down Smith three times, and being knocked down himself. Smith's ear swelling burst, to his great relief. After the 19th round Smith's strength returned, and he held his own. He had the best of the last six rounds, both men fighting as quickly and as strongly as at the start. The referee or dered that the fight be resumed, tomor row, but later Smith and Kilrain express ed mutual respect for each other, swore I eternal friendship and agreed to consider the fight a draw and pledged each other to fight Sullivan. The general opinion is that the fight was the gamest heavy- I weight contest of the generation. Smith's seconds chose for him a corner which gave him the benefit of fighting with his back to the sun, which was shining bril liantly. AN EVEN BATTLE. Smith worked with splendid pluck, took his punsshment without wincing. 1 Although knocked clean down in the i eighteenth round, his slugging blows began to tell heavily on Kilrain's right eye, which became rapidly bunged up, much in the fashion in which Sayers treated Heenan in the famed fight long ago. As a set-off Kilrain got well home with his left on Smith's ear, which soon swelled up to an abnormal size, and had to be lanced by his seconds. Kilrain's back heeling at the finish of each round told heavily on Smith, but certainly up to the fortieth round, when the men had been fighting fifty minues, there was very little to choose between them. Before the fight began odds of three and four to one were freely laid on the Eng lishman, but all betting stopped as the fight narrowed down to a question of en durance. Not once or twice, but many times it looked like AN EASY WIN FOR EILUAIN, but the indomitable pluck of the burly 1 Englishman, who invariably came up 1 with a smile, equaled matters. Not to enter into an elaborate description of each of the 106 rounds, it may be safely said that a fiercer, fairer fight has rarely been seen. There were cries of "foul,,' but a "foul" was never seriously claimed by either side. The seconds were smart in their duty, bringing their men back to their corners, and the umpires, Charles Johnson for Kilrain, and John Fleming for Smith, had few difficult points to set tle. Hard hitting and tough work were the order, with a concluding throw at the end of each round, of which the long American, who is tough and ugly, but withal an excellent wrestler, generally had the best. Howv this remarkable fight might have terminated had it been fought to a finish, it is difficult to say. Kilrain undoubtedly showed qualities that even his backers never dreamed of, and had fathee the best of the fight as they fot into the sec ond hour. On the other hand, Smith's determined rushes, indomitable pluck over and over again raised the hopes of his b SULLIVAN'S OPINION. In the 106th and last round both were fighting as quickly as at the start, when Mr. Atkinson ordered an adjournment of the contest until the next aay amid the loud cheers of the spectators, who were delighted with the pluck of both men. In Suilivan's opinion today's fight was the gamiest witnessed in many years between big men. MUST FIGwr TO A fINISH. NIw Yonx, December 21.-Richard K. 00, yvd]Qt4y aejt a message to Oeorge W.

NEW YORK, December 21.-The World published the following telegram in rela tion to the Kilrain-Smith fight. ,LONDON, December 20.-Richard K. Fox, New York: Just arrived. London crazy over the fight. Battle greatest on record. Kilrain strongest at finish. Kil rain pronounced the best fighter ever seen in England. Conceded he would have won, only darkness ended the bat tle. What about stakes? Wire Atkinson immediately. Signed, HARDING. FOX TO KILRAIN. This went to Kilrain: Jack Kilrain, champion of the world, London: My warmest congratulations on your great fight. The press and public all do honor to the American champion, and hail you champion of the world. Will back you against any man in the world for from $2,000 to $10,000. Signed, RICHARD K. Fox. JOHN WANTS TO FIGHT. LONDON, December 21.-John L. Sulli van has issued a challenge to Smith or Kilrain for $5,000 a side. What Dempsey Says. NEW YORK, December 19. - When Jack Dempsey walked into the office of the Police Gazette the other day to re ceive his check for $2,000 and the dia mond-studded belt, no one would have supposed that he had fought a battle of forty-five rounds with so good a man as Jack Reagan the day previous. There was not a mark on his face. He limped slightly from the spurring inflicted by a spike in the toe of Reagan's shoes. Mr. Fox handed Dempsey $2,000 and a box containing Kilrain's colors with the re mark: "Well, Jack, I hope Kilrain will do as well as you did." " It was a pretty hard fight," said Dempsey, "and though I do not think that Reagan is any match for me, you can bet he is a game man. The way I was spiked was outrageous. Reagan, in stead of wearing the spikes in his shoes about an inch from the sides and toward the ball of his foot, had one of the spikes right under his big toe. He spiked me twice. The second round he spiked me, tearing the tendons right out of my leg, and the shock was so great that it ran right up the cord of my neck. It was a deliberate, intentional foul." Frank Stevenson said he did not be lieve that the spiking was intentional on Reagan's part. Reagan had a way of stepping forward and throwing out his left foot. If any one was to blame it was the man who ordered his shoes for him. Sullivan's Backers. In the Sullivan-Mitchell matter it is imagined by a great many knowing ones that Mitchell knew what he was doing in making the match, and that Sullivan will not be allowed to win. The stake holder is Chippy Norton-the bookmaker who cut the ropes in the Smith-Green. field fight, and who was followed by a Birmingham gang that used knives and brass knuckles to help Greenfield. Sulli van is not worried, however. One of ten men who are to be on his side is a genial former Texan sheriff, who has shot four men and is prepared to show any Birm ingham tough that there is an American institution that beats knife and knuckle duster hollow. The other nine men will be picked fighters, and all will go armn ed and ready to handle any ten Englishmen whom the other side may bring.-Ex change. Retaliation on Iowa. CHICAGO, December 20.-Considerable stir has been caused here by the fact leak ing out that the Keeley Brewing company has instructed its brokers to buy no bar lay grown in or shipped from the states of Iowa or Kansas. The secretary of the company says: "If they won't buy our beer it is quite proper that we should not buy their barley." Louis Huck, a million aire malster, said if there was a general movement he would join it heartily. He declared the farmers of Iowa were hypo crites, pretending to believe in prohibition and at the same time are raising barley for the nianufacture of whiskey and beer. Appointed. WAsaHINTON, December 20.-Secretary Fairchild decided to appoint Percy C. Smith, of New Jersey, as chief of the appointment division of the treasury department in place of Eugene Higgins, resigned. Mr. Smith is a cousin of the secretary, and holds the position of dis bursing clerk of the postof ice depart ment, and was personally complimented for his business capacity by the post master general in his last annual report. He will relieve Mr. Higgins in January. Slaughtered in Kentucky.

Hopkins4 28 years of a died here redcently from the efecta laudapoun , tke l n o it is Wi ionable boarding house here in the pres ence of two young women. He had achieved considerable notriety both here and in other parts of the country by his reckless and eccentric conduct, most of his exploits being in the nature of the lavish expenditure of money. He in herited a large fortune some years ago, and has been conspicuous before the public ever since. A short time ago he went to New York on his way to Europe, and while there had some difficully, which gave rise to a widely circulated newspaper report that he had engaged at a considerable salary a pugilist to accom pany him on his travels, and to punish anyone who gained his ill will. He had been drinking heavily for several days before his death. In 1882, while hand ling a shot gun, it accidentally exploded, and the contents struck his wife, ter rng her head to pieces. A singular feature of this tragedy was that Mrs. Hopkins was reading the novel "A Day of Fate," when she was killed. Since that time Hopkins led a wild life. Sam Randall Firm. WAsmHINGTO, December 20.-Sam Ran dall, on being approached by a free trade democrat with the question: "Would you make any concession to be made chair man of the ways and means committee," Randall looked at him about a minute with one of his scowls and replied: " I thought you knew me too well to ask a question of that kind. No, sir, I would not compromise my principals to be made president," and turning on his heels he left. OYAL!I POWDER' Absolutely Pure. This Powder never varies.
