Philadelphia, Jan. 26 Packey Mc
Farland of Chicago had a decided ad
vantage oyer Young Erne of this city
in their six-round bout before the
National Athletic club last night.
There was not a moment after the
first round that the Chicago boy did
not show his superiority.
In the opening round Erne broke
even but from that time to the end
of the sixth McFarland made him
look like a novice. He was slow and
missed many left and right swings,
which left beautiful openings for Mc
Farland. . In the fifth round McFar
land rushed Erne and had the Phll
adelphian covering up.
Erne weighed at least ten pounds
more than his opponent. j

while it lasted.
The third round was th hottest of
the go, both men trying desperately for
a knockout. It ended in a clinch. In
the fourth Lewis rushed Summers to
th eropes and knocked him out with a
straight right to the jaw. After Sum
mers had taken the count' Lewis pick
ed him up and carried hi mto his cor
ner. The men were matched at 144
