Of the World.
The Two Men Fought One
of the Fiercest Bat-
tles In Fistic
New York.Nov. 4.-In the most mar
vellouB fistic encounter that has re-
cently attracted the eyes of the sport
lng world and before the greatest
crowd of people that ever assembled at
a ring side to witness such a pugilistic
encounter James Jeffries was ' given
the decision over Tom Sharkey in the
twenty fifth at the Coney Island Atb
letis club last night tby referde Geo-
Silcr and he still retains the cham
plonaiiip of the world.
It was a battle fought surely on its
merits. A comparison between the
condition of the two men could scarce-
ly be drawn as they both entered the
ring fit to make the battle of their
Sharkey forced the fighting and
showed himself to be remarkably
clever and w swift Ion his feet. With
his terrlfio punches he kept Jeffries
continually on the aggressive and
showed by bis bard hitting that he had
no superior not even in Bob. Fitzsim-
mons who was credited with being one
of the hardest hitters that ever pulled
on a glove.
Jeffriee' style showed that he had
improved sinoe his fight with Fitzslm-
mons and he further showed himself
to be remarkably clever shifty on his
feet and while he did cot show any
great ring generalehip he made up
for this lack of tactics by his punching
For twenty rounds Sharkey kept
Jeffries moving at a rapid pace but
in the twenty-second round Jeffries got
in a couple of vicious uppyer cuts that
made Sharkey groggy.
Jeffries received terrific punishment
and with his eye ear and nose split
came back at Sharkey more viciously
in an effort to retrieve himself.
Shortly before the gong sounded
Jeffries' left glove came off and the
contest was practically over. The
crowd urged Sharkey to rush in and
finish it but Referee George Siler pre-
Jeffries used his weight to good ad-
vantage. THE FIGHTERS RESTING.

ter the battle Jeffries and his party
went to Ben Choen's resort wbere a
few bottles were opened. Then they
all took cabs and were driven to
Wakeley's hotel where the jollification
was completed. Jeffries and a few of
his friends then went to the Murray
Hill bathe. The champion left no call
and wili probably sleep through the
day. This evening he will leave for
Sharkey was driven in a eab to
Evard's baths and after a rub-down
went to sleep. Tim McGrath and Dr.
Francis E. Cutler are with him. Dr.
"Sharkey has a lacerated coaluslon
on the left shoulder and his muscles
are sprained at this point. There is a
cut over his left eye. On his left side
over the sixth rib the flesh is swollen
and the skin is black and blue. Ap-
parently no bones are broken."
SHARKEY SHOWS PLUCK.
Doctor Crammer the athletic club's
physician attended Sharkey alter the
battle and said that with the physical
pain that Sharkey must have suffered
he gave a wonderful exhibition of
pluok. It was fully half an hour be-
fore he was able to dress and leave
the club house. He was very weak and
could hardly walk.
Jeffries knew after the engagement
that he had been in a prize fight.
Sharkey rapped him hard and often
and he is a bruised and battered man
