The boxin? match at Fry's Opera House last evening resulted as The Palatka News predicted in a lively and exciting contest. The hall began to fill at 8:30 o'clock with a merry throng to witness the boxing matches for the colored championship of the State of Florida. Some six entries were made, and as Thomas A. Edwards, master of ceremonies, entered and introduced Masters William Bell t nd Tom Bradley as contestants in the 'moke tight hearty round of cheers arose from many throats. Both were short, stout, black chaps, and proved to be pretty evenly matched. The gloves were dipped in Hour, and every time a lick was made a white target appeared upon the victim's skull or chest, with a beautiful back ground to offset it. After two good rounds Bradley came off victor. Each round lasted one minute, and the same length of time was allowed for resting,' while ten seconds were given for a knock down. Mr. J. W. Scott was re feree. The next entry was made by Henry Jones and Sam Newman, for the heavy weight championship of Florida in a fight to a finish. This match consisted of eight rounds and was decided by a good contest. They were of pretty near the same height and weight. While Jones was study and put in some power ful and telling strokes, Newman played all around him and consequently lost more or less breath. In the third round the latter hit Jones a tremendous lick in the stomach and "winded'' him just as the referee called time. After eight good rounds Newman was com pletely tired out and withdrew from the battle, whence Henry Jones was pro nounced to be the champion of the State. Next appeared the middle weights, the participants being Moses R. Tysen, for The Palatka News, it was an nounced, and Jack Turner, an employee of the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railway, for the State's champion ship. Three rounds were placed as the limitation of the contest, but as they loth started out in a lively manner and Tysen in working his opponent to the front of the stage, caused Turner to make a misstep and fall over the foot lights into the orchestra circle, the third round was considered a "foul" and a fourth was called. Some heavy pound ing was experienced by the contestants and finally "The Palatka News man" came out a gallant Tictor amid rounds of applause. At this point Moses Tysen was brought to the front of the stage by the mister of ceremonies who stated that Tysen challenges any man of the same height and weight, with soft or hard gloves, ' for any sum within the limit of $50 at any time and place. The last entries were made by Harry Singleton, of South Carolina, and Charlie (livings, of Tallahassee, in a fight to a finish for the lightweight chamuionship of the State. Both contestants were short and thick-set, in fact they were perfect specimens of the African type, and made the best con- test, by far, of the entire event. Each worked hard throughout the seven rounds that followed and some well di rected blows were delivered by both par ties, but the fight terminated in the last round by Givings giving Singleton a ter. rific lick and knocking him off of his feet and completely out of the ring. For some minutes Singleton was unable to get up on his feet again. The evening's entertainment was in terspersed with music by the First Battalion band and the occasion was one of considerable amusement for the spec tators. Givings challenges any one of the same height and weight for the sum of $100. As some twelve applications were made for the Gala Week boxing tour nament, the remaining contestants will fight to-night at the colored Odd Fel lows Hall, on Lemon street. Among others are E. R. Clinton, of Boston, and O. J. Eastman, of Battle Creek, Mich., lioth white, who will also fight for the State's championship. to-day's programme. 10:50 a. m. yacht race first class yachts. .... 1 :30 p. m.
