He opeiied Mail's eye. early in the light and concentrateu on tlic injured optic for the remainder of the bout. The colored boy dropped the Irisher in the, thhv round with a stiff right on the chin and Jloored him again in the seventh. The surpHsc bout of the evening was another eight-rounder.

When time for the bout arrived An-, nouncer Chick KqWy informed tin crowd that Moore would not appeal as iie had been rushed to the hospital early yesterday suffering from •ptomaine poisoning. The Kubstiln- tion brought, forth the usual "Brooklyn cheers" from some of thr fans when Indian Gome/, of Havana, Ouba, entered the ring id match swings with p.Jorello. But— from the llrsl couple of swings a"' the fighters bad sixed up their ponents—the fans had their flil oj enjoyment with an exhibition o; bull-dog scrappi'ng that had them on their feet until the llnal gong it was a wow and, coupled with tbc other bout between Will-ii Hoach and • Dougherty, will undoubtedly keep Promote)' Gcorgi- Mulligan busy next week answering 'phone calls-for reserved seats for the card nc'xt Friday night.
