contest arranged by Promoter McCnroy.
Tho winner of tho bout will be balled as
the whlto heavyweight champion. In as

tho following statement after the fight:
"McCarty Is a big. strong, clever fel

beat Jim. to every punch and It Is need
less to .ay that It whs a Miirpilie. Only

McCarty said the fight resulted Just us

able to reach him effectively. Near the
end .of tho round Flynn was staggered
by a series of rights and lefts to the
face and appeared groggy. He camo up
with n rush In the third, but McCurty
stopped him with a stinger that drew
blood from the fireman's nose and forced
him to stall.
Flynn even It In the fourth, rushing
McCarty repeatedly and hooking him
with an uppercut that rocked tho MIs-
sourlan's head. The fifth was a ham-mcr-ond-tongs
affair, ending with a
fierce mlxup in the center of the ring.

The seventh, bitterly contested through
out, ended with honors even. Both men
showed signs of wear when they went
to their corners and the succeeding round
was tame. In the tenth, however, McCarty
landed a hard right to the Jaw, putting
the veteran down for the count of nine.
Flynn arose groggy and hung on. Fol
lowing up this advantage, the Mlssourlan
dropped Flynn again, but the fireman
made u remurkable rally und lasted out
the round.
McCurty tried hard to end It In the
tenth, but Flynn showed strong recuper
atlvo powers and held his heavier oppo
nent fairly even. Badly battered nnd
rushing wildly, flynn went through the
eleventh, rocked repeatedly by the blows
that McCarty landed almost at will. It
was tho same In the twelfth, tho fire
man's stamina 'arousing tho wonder of
the .crowd.
Flynn kept boring In In the thirteenth,
shaking, his head under tho fusllade of
blows that McCarty ruined upon his
puffed und. bleeding face. The next two
rounds went the same way, the Mis
sourlan having his antagonist at his
mercy, but lacking the driving power to
stop him.
Flynn seemed almost helpless- when at
tho outset of the sixteenth he was sent
down for tho count of nne nnd when a
moment later a smash to the Jaw dropped
him for tho second time, Heferee Kyton
stopped the fight and declared McCarty
the winner.

Itudy Unholz, tho Chicago Boer cham

Omaha fought eight rounds to a draw
last night before the Flambeau club.
The match, which was merely an exhibi
tion, was well taken by tho club mem
bers, of which almost 700 wero present.
Although no decision was given, it
was the opinion of the fistic fans pres
ent that the match ended wltli honors
even. However, Unholz ld not exert
himself at any stage of the bout and
hud he opened up he could have put his
man out nt any time after the third
Gorman. however, deserves much
ciedlt for putting up a clever exhibition.
He was fnft on his feet nnd covered In
fine hhapc. Unholz plainly showed that
he was a master at the ring game from
the start. He tried out his man until
he knew his tactics and managed to get
away from harm. I'nholz used a left
hook very effectively during the first
few rounds of the fight, but towards the
last he opened up with a now style of
fighting In which a right swing was
the fcatuie.
