How Jack Sullivan Won.
Now York World : The Sullivar
family Is on the map again , for lasl
night at the Olympic A. C. Montanr
Jack Sullivan gave Sailor Burke tlu
trimming of his young and oventfu
Behind this fight there Is a story
a little "human interest tale , " as tin
Sunday editors say.
The Montana boys , Jack and Dan
came to New York a few months ag (
backed by a long record of succcssfu
western fights. Jack , the older of tin
two and the more clover , had beatei
Jim Flynn , who knocked out Al Kauf
man a few months ago In Kansas City
and had fought a tweny-round drav
with Ketchel. Dan was younger am
less experienced , but stronger am
more rugged as well ns more tin
fighter In appearance. The two begai
training together at Brown's , ver ;
quietly , and waited for matches. Be
cause of their western reputation the ;
found opportunities hard to find. Botl
had been beating heavyweights , whll
either could easily make the eli
Tommy Ryan middleweight limit 15
pounds ringside. Mlddlewelghts win
beat heavyweights aren't popula
among other aspirants for the middle
Jack Sullivan fought Connie Smltl :
and won easily. Then along cam
Frank Klaus. He was willing to flgh
anybody , whether the name was Sull
van or Bachlgaloupl , and with entlr
disregard for western performances
Klaus fbught and stopped Jack Sull
van In three fierce rounds , the refere
ending the bout when Sullivan wa
helpless on his feet after several bar
knockdowns. Brother Dan , In Jack'
corner , was almost broken hearted. 1
was up to Dan to save the family re ]
utation , and ho determined to do It b
walloping Sailor Burke.
Jack stood In Dan's corner the
night nt the N. Y. A. C. and saw th
younger brother , after a terrific , sei
saw battle , beaten so badly that th
fight was stopped at the end of th
ninth In response to the demands c
the spectators. It was a crilshln
blow. Everybody laughed at the Su
llvans now. Dan wont west to flgl
his way up again. Jack stayed in Ne' '
York. His ono desire was to fight an
whip Burke. "I'll whip him sure , " li
declared. "If ho can whip me I'm n
fighter , and I'll go back to Montana-
back to the mines. "
The Olympic was packed last nlgl
an It always Is. The crowd know
all about the tragedy of the SulllvaiiB.
It wan curious to neo this scono. Itn
Bontlmont was with Montana Jack ,
but UB money WHB offered on Uurko ,
odda two to one , with no takers.
In his corner Montana .lack seemed
to bo not In the Icnnt nervous. Uo
started nenma at Burke , not very am
iable. When called to the center ho
argued with thu roferco and looked
Uurko over truculently. Uurko only
mulled his superior smileHo Intend *
od to Blow Mr. Sullivan away In n
round or two.
And for the first thrco rounds It
looked as If Hurko would make good.
In the very first clinch ho used hla
favorite uppercut that brought n
trickle from his noattlls. Jack only
looked grim and fought carefully. In
fact ho was HO careful for three roundfl
that the spectators grew restless. Ho
ducked low to avoid Burke's anxious
swings. Ho clinched and wrestled ,
and as ho was n slim , bony middle
weight compared to the robuat Bailer
( who was at least ton pounds heav
ier ) It scorned that ho couldn't last
long at that game.
But to the surprise of the specta
tors , Sullivan showed a wiry strength
and a skill that enabled him to tto
Rurko's hands and foil his furious ef
forts. Hurko couldn't Und an effec
tive blow. Ho grow more and more
exasperated , while Sullivan laughed
and "kidded" him continually. Once
Burke wrestled Sullivan down , but tin
they fell Jack twisted clear and foil
on top. Burke butted deliberately.
Sullivan butted back , two for one.
Burke used his elbows. Sullivan el
bowed too. The sailor couldn't under
stand It. In the second round Sulli
van brought color from Burko's nose
with a Jarring right. In the third
Hurko rushed and Sullivan bent over
with almost grotesque awkwardness to
avoid his HWlnga. Ho clinched , and
as he closed In hit a short , snappy
blow at Burko's left ear.
Then , in the fourth , Sullivan dropped
bis caution and began to light. Ho
landed fierce rights that drove the
sailor back and broke his rushes. In
the clinches ho hammered at Burku's
loft ear deliberately , llko a football
team hammering at ono spot In the
opposing line. Burke heeled and el
bowed and roughed. "Whore's your
smile , Burke ? " jeered a spectator.
Burke forced n grin , and Sullivan
wiped It away with a right. Sullivan
was laughing and talking as ho fought.
He was "getting Burko's goat. "
The light went along plenty of
mixing all the way. In the sixth
Burke jumped suddenly and began to
shift , Ketchel style. Instantly Sulli
van leaped In and met hjii ( savage left
and right. Burke clinched , and Sulli
van never lost a cbanco to hit at that
left oar. It wa sswelllng. Burke put
his hand up to feel of It. He didn't
llko the Idea of losing his beauty. Ho
was exasperated. Ho rushed and
shifted , and Sullivan drove him back
on his heels before he could start a
punch. "Good boy , Sullivan , " yelled
the crowd. "He's yella , Jack , "
whooped some one back near the wall.
The fight was turning all Sullivan's.
Ho was too shifty , too fast , too good
a sharpshooter for Burke. In the sev
enth Burke set himself and drove a
heavy straight right to Jack's jaw
his famous knockout punch. Sullivan
countered almost before the thud of
Burko's punch had reached the rlngsld-
ers. And the counter was as heavy
as the hit. Burke began dancing. Sul
livan nailed him with a right , and
Burke , clinching and holding , used his
elbows. There was fast fighting. Sul
livan rushing Burke around the ring.
He landed a straight left on the sail
or's jaw so hard that it knocked Burke
groggy. Ho staggered away , with Sul
livan pounding him , and the boll rang.
They were In Sullivan's corner. Burke ,
laughing , pushed Sullivan Into his
chair. It was a bit of stageplay of
"goat-getting. " But Sullivan reached
up and gave Burke's head a jerk , and
laughed at him.
In the ninth Burke drove a crushing
right to Sullivan's chin , and again
Jack took the blow without flinching
and sent back a counter. "Go get
him , Jack you've got him ! " yelled
the crowd , as Burke's knees shook.
The yelling was all for Sullivan now.
But Burke stood him off. Sullivan
had only a llttlo the better of the mill
At the beginning of the last round
the handshake was at arm's length ,
both being wary of trickery. At once
Burke began mixing furiously. It
seemed sure that ono of his blows
must find the mark , but Sullivan's
head was elusive. Sullivan took the
aggressive again. "Sullivan wins by
a mile ! " Jeered the crowd. Burke ,
furious , rushed and got the worst of
it. At the end Jack Sullivan had It
all his own way. Burke's loft eye
and left ear were showing signs of
wear , and no music ever sounded bet
ter to him than the last bell.
After the bout , ns the boxers were
leaving the hall , there was a discus
sion. Sullivan punched Burko's mana
ger , which was piling It on a llttlo.
And then ho walked down the struct
to send a wire to brother Dan.
