Tlio Story of lomi nly'fl Defeat.
Howard Rutherford , a 'Frisco newspaper
man and a member of the California athlotio
club , spent an hour at Tun BUR ofllco last
evening. Ho talked entertainingly of the
recant affairs before the California clubs ,
particularly on Dompsey's defeat at the
hands of Georeo La Blanche.
"Tho Marino , " ho said , "never was Jn
such condition , whllo Jack was all awry.
In the Ural six rounds La Blanche rushed
and Dempsey showed his skill as a ducker
ana jumper , but ho never lost an opportunity
to Jab his burly antagonist In the face. * La
Blanche was ucly nnd showed n tonaonoy
to light foul , and ho should have been called
down In the seventh round. " Up to the
eleventh round It was rush und sing by the
Marino nnd dodco nnd stab by Jack. After
this La Blanche adopted the long range tac
tics. Ho made no headway , whllo Dempsey
began to swing hia right nnd was rapidly
nailing the light. In the twenty-sixth round
ha thought bo saw a chance to knock the
Marino out. Ho pushed him Into his corner ,
but to the surprise of everyone , barely saved
himself from being knocked out. as La
.Blanche Inllictod BOIIIO awful punishment.
In the thirty-second ho wont after him
again. Ho llddlrd the Marino to the ropes ,
then , after a feint , lot p.o his loft , following
with bis right on La Blanche's Jaw , but the
next instant the doughty Jack lay on the
floor an Inert mass. The knotty right list of
the Marino had collided with Dorapsoy's
nose with tremendous force , and tbo Nonpa
reil was a vanquished man for the first time
in his life. "
