T� AH.Y HKRATiD -r/L> ro ALL THE LOCAL *ND WOWLO'� FOWEMOST EVENT> er mm m the Wll te race champions Jim Flynn Totally Outclassed - Fight was Stopped in Sixteenth Round With the Ex-Fireman on the Receiving End of a Terrific Bombardment of Punches PRIVILEGED DOG ILL tos Angeles, Dec. 10.-McCaithy TNon In a IG-Tound battle from .Tim riynn tonight. The police stopped the fight. McCarthy weighed in at L'05, Flynn nt IPi'.. McCarthy and Flynn entered the ling at 6.55. Belting at the ring-�i\le was lively. McCarthy carried the fight to Flynn throughout the first round and the fireman spat blood from his corner. McCarthy continued to force the fightinc In the second, and. Flynn seemed unable to reach him effective-l.^. Near the end of the round Flynn ^.�Hs staggered by a scries ot rights and lefts to the face, and appeared jiroggy. He came up with a rush in tlic third, but McCarthy stopped him vitli a blow that drew blood from the fireman's nose and forced him to stall. I'lynn evened It up In the fourth, rushing McCarthy Tepeatedly and liooking him with an uppercut that rocked the Missourian's head. The fifth -was a hammer and tongs Htfair, ending with a fierce mixup in the centre ot the ring. In the si,\th I'lynn staggered McCarthy with a left .swing that sent him - against the ropes. The seventh was bitterly contested throughout and ended with the honors even. Both men showed signs of wear when they went to thei-r corn- ers, and the succeeding, round was tame. In the wnth, McCarthy landed a hard right to the jaw, putting the veteran down for the count ot nine. Flynn arose groggy and holding on. Following up this advantage, the Missourian dropped Flynn for a second and a third time, but the fireman made a remarkable rally and lasted out the round. McCarthy tried hard lo end it in the tenth, but Flynn showed strong recuperative powers, and held his heavier opponent fairly even. Badly battered and rushing blindly, j Flynn %vent through the eleventh rocked repeateiliy by the blows that McCarthy landed almost at will. It was the same in the twelfth, the fireman's stamina arousing the wonder of the crowd. Flynn kept boring-in in the thirteenth, swaying his head under the fusiiade ot blows that McCarthy rained upon his puffed and bleeding face. The next two rounds went the same way, the Missourian having his antagonist at his mercy, but lacking the driving power to stop him. ? ? ? ? � ? � ? London.

SKAIG Big Crowds at Lake-Street Cars Reap Harvest-More Dressing Rooms Tile street railway system has struck a gold-mine-producing revenue The crowds that arc 'taking advantage of the excellent skating conditions at the lake ate responsible for the coin of the realm that has been pouring into the cofters of the system this last three or tour days. Sunday a great throng of skat4;rs were at the lake as well as onlookers. Monday night the cars to and from the park registered near eight hundred fares. Last night the nrnn-bcr of people skating at the lake appeared to b& la third as much again as on Moniiay evening, and with weather and ice conditions remaining on j a par with tliat of the present there Flyun seemed almost helpless when , is no doubt but what the crowds at the outset Qf the sixteenth he was sent down for the count of nine, and when a moment later a smash to the jaw dropped him for the second time. Referee Eaton stopped the fight and declared McCarthy the winner. AN UNPARALLELED INCIDENT OF THE PUGILISTIC ARENA London, iJec. 11. - -Johnny Sum-nier.s, the welterweight boxing chami-pion 01 England, wiio retained Lord Lonsdale's l)elt, symbolizing the distinction by defeating Sid Burns at the National Sporting Club on Mon-liay night, is a devout Catholic. lust before tiie light began Sum-nicr.s knelt in his corner, bowed his lit-ad rcventiy and made the sign of the ero.ss. Then he sprang to Uis feet liki' a panther, dashed at his man, and, with both liands did his best to Jiaminer the sense out of him. At the cud of each round Summers turned down his left sock and touch-I'li a rosary that was wound around liis ankle, and at tlie call ot lime lo .start each round lie dropped on one knee and passed his right hand across his face. Wiicii the tiglit was over and. lie had rf)iiqiiercd on points after twenty fierce rounds, .Summers again dropped to his knees in his corner. Al- though in such a place and at such a time the actions of Summers seemed utterly incongruous, there was not even a titter from the asseiw-hlage of sports, and lighting men say indeed that riot a man present but what was moved by the simple iaith and courage of the man. Summers has always been very devout, lie is simple minded as a child and as honest and upright as the day is long both inside and outside the rinu. Although his opponent was cautioned several times (or holding,- Summers was scrupulously fair in all he did. INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE will even be double that of last night. ! The street railway seems to have come in for an iinexpectwl harvest. To meet the demand ot tiic increasing number of skaters at the lake and to taild to their convenience, the city will have more dressing rooms and a number of benches located there. .Another sliack the size of the present one, is (being sought -and a smaller one for the use of the children. Henderson' lake is proving popular as a .skating rink far beyond apny-one's expectations and anything that the city can do- to make the piistime more favorable will be appreciated by the patrons and will certainly prove profitable for the city. .\ perfect system of nooding the ice is an apparent necessity and shouldn't prove a difficult thing to do. .'\. policeman on skates would find his services in demand in keeping order. There is the speed mercliant who is always a dangerous indiVi-dual who needs to be relegated to some corner ot the ice. The vaudevillo artist with his fancy cuts and turns needs to be chased to a distant corner, too, also the crack-the-whip performers.
