The glove contest between McCormick
and McDonald attraileU a largo crowd to
Cunningham Hall last evening. It was a
very orderly throng , composed of repre
sentatives of almost every class in
At 9 o'clock , "Baby" Barnes , as master
of ceremonies , stopped into the 21-foot
ring , and announced the first event of the
ovoninir , a four-round sot to between
Matt Richardson , the champion middle
weight of Alinnosota. so called , and
Steve Carroll , of Dos Moincs , la. It was
an amusing affair. Carroll played with
lUchardson just as ho pleased , hitting
him all over the face , HOOK
and stomach. Richardson was ganio ,
however , and took all that was given him
with tlio utmost good nature. Carroll
was nn easy winner.
"J don't allow no nigger to do mo up , "
was the remark of a big , over-grown boy ,
Charley Short , who faced Jesse Sinitn ,
the colored pugilist , in tlio next contest.
The bout was of short duration. The
"coon's1' blood was up. and ho sailed
into his opponent in the most lively
manner , knocking him down four times
in less than that many minutes. One
round was sulliolont to convince Short
that ho was no pugilist. The crowd fairly
shrieked with laughturo at the white
man's discomfiture. Smith Is a nifty
quick little lighter , and prevented Short
from getting in a sinclo blow.
The main event of the evening , the
glove contest between James McCor-
mlok , who claims the championship of
Nebraska , and Duncan McDonald , of
Butte , Mont. , was announced at exactly
five minutes of 10 o'clock. Shortly after
that time , McDonald appeared in the
ring , Ho is a line looking man , of splen
did physique. Ho Is six foot in hoig'it ,
weighs 101 pounds and is twenty-four
years of ago , Ho appeared in a ring
costume of white trunks and black hose.
McCormick is five feet eleven in height ,
weighs 108 pounds , and is 28 years
of ago. Ho was attired In tlio
snmo costume which covered his form
when ho met Marx.
William McCunn was chosen to act as
referee. John P. Clew acted as time
keeper for McDonald and Jack Nugent
for MeCormlck. "Baby" Barnes and
Sherman Tlmrston were selected as
Judges , to score points ,
McCormlok's seconds were Prof. Patsj
Fallen and Harry Gordon. Mlko Ritchie
acted as second for McCormick.
A few minutes after o'clock both
men were ordered together. "By , "
said McCormick to his second , Ritchie ,
as ho ovod McDonald curiously , " 111show
that dude something about light
ing , I'll break his jaw worse than 1 diil
Marx's. " But ho was badly fooled ,
McDonald , who is a litho , active , clean
built man , quick as a oat , and familial
with alt the scientific points , demon
Btrated from the start that hg was vastlj
McUonulok's superior in everything bul
miihclo , In fact ho handled his oppo <
nent exactly as ho pleased , playing wit )
him in very much the same manner thai
n cat does with a mouse.
The first round opened with cUrcfu
biiarrtngon the partof botlunon. Finally
McDonald got h\s \ right homo on MuCor
' licok effectual astc
ulck's in such style as
knock that worthy fiat on his back. Mc
Cormick stumbled to his feet and re
turned the assault with a counter or two
which did no harm. McDonald hit his
opponent several smart blows in tlio
stomach with the evident intention of
winding him. The round closed with
McCormick puffiing like a grampus.
SKCONl ) KOUNI ) .
Both men rushed together and some
lively short-arm work was done , honors
being about equally divided. In this
round McDonald confined his work prin
cipally to round arm blows , which ho
worked in cleanly , taking care to avoid
McCormick's return blows by quick
dodging. It was evident that ho had the
latter completely at Ins mercy.
THIUI ) HOUND.
McDonald came to the center smil
ing and fresh as a daisy.
* 'Ilow do you like the dude style of
sparring ? " ho facetiously asked McCor-
mick. The latter gritted his teeth and
said nothing. Some lively cross-counter
work followed , both men getting in some
After two or throe preliminary rushes
McDonald throw his right square at Mc
Cormick's ' neck. Tlio blow wont beauti
fully homo , and knocked the heavy man
down against tlio ropes. McDonald
waited a moment for his antagonist
to recover himself , and then tapped him
lightly in a playful sort of a way. Me-
Connie ! ; replied feebly.
THE OTIIKIt HOl'NDS
were but a repetition of the preceding.
McDonald toyed with his antagonist ex
actly as ho pleased , rustling in and tap
ping McCormick and getting
away before the latter could re
turn the compliment. On two occasions
ho made a iiunn into the air , wiiiriod
clean around anil hit McCormick a sound
back-arm blow in the nock , before that
worthy could recover from his astonish
ment. The eighth and last round closed
with lively sparring , in which both
men did good work.Vhen the bout was
closed McDonald was still smiling and
easy , though a trillo winded. .McCor-
mick was not injured to speak of , though
ho was bleeding a trillo at the mouth and
nose. The four ounce gloves which
were used precluded any such thing as
a jaw-breaking blow.
At the close of the contest the roforco
awarded the honors to McDonald , who
had scored 1UG points against McCor
Taken all in all , the evening's sport
was a pleasing entertainment ,
and gave ample satisfac
tion. The managers of the
afl'air tloservo credit for having adhered
strictly to their promises in making the
contest a strictly scientific out' , for points
only. Just before ho left the ring Me-
Cormiok was given a handsome box of
llowors from one of his lady admirers.
Jqhn P. Clew , the Colorado champion ,
who was present , challenged the winner
to an eight round contest. McDonald
will meet him next week to arrange the
date and terms of the contest.

For the last sixteen years Mr. Dayitt
has given the use of ills time and his pen
to the advocacy of the cause of his coun
trymen. A writer of depth ana power ;
a speaker at once polished and convinc
ing , ho might have lined his pockets with
gold and acquired for himself the luxury
of his titled persecutors ; but no , ho
thought not of self ; his only care was the
elevation of his fellow-man and tlio
protecting of him from the brutal rapac
ity of onobled villainy. To-day ho is a
poor man , No inducement could lead
him to accept anv gift , however small ,
from his impoverished but grateful coun
trymen. His admirers in Omaha will
see to it that ho is honored on Tuesday
night , as becomes his exalted worth.
