THKEE POLICEMM • Witnessed the Span-In* Exhibition at the Kink Last Sight, JOT FOR THE LITTLE FOLES. And no Hard Blows rt'ere Struck— Tne Crowd Sumbered Nearly Two Hundred. Whatever the Intention of the managers may have been, the presence of Captain Foley, Sergeant Morris and Patrolman Costello at the rink last night, bad a tendency to discourage the expectations of the two hundred old and young men who lad gathered to witness the sparring exhibition advertised to take place there. To those accustomed to such sights, the arrangement of the ring looked very much like "the real thing" &nd had a tendency to quicken the circulation. The ring was regulation size, twenty-four feet, and was elevated about three feet above the floor. The floor of the ring was covered with canvass and the posts supporting the ropes were padded. There was also a gong which announced the beginning and end of each round. Charles Nye acted as master of ceremonies, "Regular" Bay as referee, and Frank Duckworth as timekeeper. The exhibition opened with a five- round gc between Wort Hoffman, a local blacksmith, and Dick Johnson, an ex-Panhandle switchman. Eight- ounce gloves were used, and notwithstanding the fact that Johnson gave the beat exhibition -of science, Hoffman got the decision. The second event was the attempt upon trie part of two professionals "Kid" Hennessy Tierney, to give and Prof. 'Jack a reproduction of the Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight at Carson City. It was a fair exhibition of scientific boxing, and in the end FltEslmmons' famous knock-out blow was repeated by Hennessy, and was plainly seen by those seated nearest the ringi Tierney is by far the cleverest of the two men. The last event was to have been a six-round cop test between "Pomp" Bailey, colored, and Jack Kennedy, of Indianapolis, but as the latter failed to appear, Prof. Tierney was substituted. The men sparred three rounds, during which Tierney made a monkey of the pretentious colored fighter. CHICAGO MAJRKKTS Manager* of the Kindergarten Schools Wire the Children a Treat.
