in balancing himself to take a
shot at. something or other he
must have slipped and in so doing
the gun was thrown into a posi
tion so as to bo in line with his
neck and in this place exploded

DICK DILLARD WON
Decision was Given Local
Man in Sixth Round on a
Sing Hosan and Dick Dillard
boxed a very pretty match last
Saturday night at the local opera
house. Not only was it pretty
but clever, a contest where skill
counted above all else.1
Both men were in the pirift of
condition when they entered the
ring though a strongly assorted
pair, Dillard was tall and rangy,
while the boxing china.manx.was
short and compact.
Until the fourth round neither
man ' could have been said to
have the slightest advantage, in
the fifth Sing was warned sever?
al times to be careful about foul
ing, this round was Dillards In
the sixth up tq the time? Sing
fouled Dillard, the round was
Sings but the decision was given
to Dillard when Sing uninten
tionally fouled him and doubled
him up for a second or two how
ever Dillard was on his feet and
vva3 willing to continue in a short
time but the referee gave him
the decision on a foul.
A Chinese boxer is a novelty
and a fair, sized crdud was pres
ent to witness the match. Sing
proved to be a clever boxer and
possessedof wonderful appitude
for taking punishment, had the
foul not occured, it is doubtful
$o say just how the contest
would have -gone as neither man
was winded at this time, both
seeming capable of going the full
ten rounds. It was a clever con
test, full of snap and action and
was greatly enjoyed by those as
sembled to witness it.
The preliminary match be
tween Ira Bradford and Fleming
Goss was called off at the end of
the second round on account of
a cut over Gosse's eye which
while being in no way a bad cut,
