A crow d of about three hundred people went to Philadelpliia last night to see the Daly-Lavigne contest and all were pleased, as Daly certainly made a great showing. Lavigne is a clever lad, but Daly is cleverer. Captain Kane was tlie first man to congratulate Daly after tlie contest. Most all tlie sports from here don't see | how Lavigne can stay fifteen rounds with Italy. If last night's contest had i been longer there is hardly a doubt but that Daly would have put hint out. !

When the ex-champion ar rived oil the coast lie was challenged by Sharkey, but ignored the sailor's deli. told Sharkey to go ahead and meet Jim Jeffries. Frank Erne and llaray Lemons the clever colored leightweight, have been matched to box twenty live rounds at the Olympia A. Buffalo, on April 25. The bout is likely to create a great deal of interest, as both men are hard hitters. Lemons recently knocked out Mike Leonard. Me in Kid McCoy's declaration that he will not fight anybody in a club managed by Tom O'Rourke, simply because tlie latter has "treated him meanly" by accusing him of unfair tactics in the fight with t'reedon, is nothing if not absurd. If McCoy wants to fight Riihlin, Maher, Choynski, Jeffries or Sharkey in a heavy weight bout, and O'Rourke offers a liberal purse or guarantee of gate re ceipts, such an excuse by the alleged heavyweight champion will not be ac cepted by the public. a the deal the de as CYCLING.

Why the con test between Jack Daly, of this city, and Kid Lavignc. And to say that the reports sent from Cleveland on March 17th were correct when they said that Daly had the best of it would he telling no lie. In last nights fight Paly without doubt had all the hist of it with tiie exception of thesecond and fifth rounIs. In the second round La vinge landed a terriffic right hand swing over the heart and in the fifth the Kid landed a straight left hand lead that caught Daly square in the face. These two blows were the only ones that were worth speaking of. During all the rest of the fight Daly was all over Lavignc. particularly so when the Kid started to rush him. As every time he did Daly fought him to a standstill and forced the Kid away. With but one exception every Lavigne landed Daly always had return mostly with his left. Jack certainly has a great left, and did most of his work with this hand. Lavigne's most dangerous blow is his right hand swing for tlie heart or ribs. Lavigne is a very clever man, but it seems that the only place he could hit Daly was with light blows on the bodv. Last night's contest at the Arena was one of the most scientific that was ever hdil in the building, and it would be hard to find two such scientific boxers anywhere. Following is the fight in detail: Daly was tiie first to appear, w ith .Sam Fitzpatrick, his manager, and Tony Stannard, and got a royal send-off. A second later Kid Lavigne, his brother Killy and Jack Fogerty appeared; they also got a round of applause. When tlie Kid stepped in the ring he nodded to Daly, and Jack spoke to him. lias that al his and tlie liis To First Round—Daly opened the battle with a straight left on Lavinge's jaw.
