JUDGE WON 'THE BATTLE
Defeated Nike Duddy After a Hurd
ELEVEN ROUNDS WEKE FOUGHT
Tills Was tho Star Feature of tho Tonrnn.
meat of tho Nonparlcl Athletic Club
at Weber's Kink and Attracted a
Largo Crowd of Sports.
Steve Judge, or the South Side, de
feated Mlko Duddy, of Old Forge, in
the eleventh round nt the boxing tourn
ament In Weber's rink, Taylor, last
night. They met in a lif teen-round con
test for a puree of $10 a Bide and half
the gate receipts.
Entertainment that was well worth
tho dollur price of admission was the
card furnished by the Nonparlcl Ath
letic club, of Taylor, nt Weber's rink
last night. In the center of the hall
a roped arena, twenty-four feet square,
was erected, nnd there the pugilistic
gladiators engaged In tho struggle for
the mastery. Sports from up and down
the valley wore among the spectators.
The crowd did not total more than 250.
Tho loud checked trouser and feBtlve
red tie were very much In evidence. It
had been advertised as a 'tournament
under the auspices of the Nonparlels,
nnd such whs tho fact: but the attrac
tion that drew most of tho sports to
gether was the spi-clal fifteen-round
"go" between "Mike" Duddy, of Old
Forge, nnd Stevo Judge, n brother of
Champion James Judge, of South
Men Wcro In Condition,
The men have been In training for the
past threo months nnd they were In the
pink of condition. Delay had kept the
entertainment from beginning until 10
o'clock. Then tho first event was a
three-round bout between Tommy
Gardner, a lithe youth from the Ex
celsior Athletic olub, of this city, nnd
Danny Hayes, of Taylor. P. J. Murphy,
Instructor of the Scranton Athletic
club, was the referee.
Hayes was the heavier of the two and
seme In tho audience pitied Gardner,
but they had no occasion for their com
miseration. Tho first novmd was spent
in parrying blows, but Gardner got In
a few stiff punches on his opponent's
proboscis, that made the olfactory or
gan change to the brightness of a July
sunbeam. The second round was of
the give and take order, but In the third
the fireworks opened nnd Hayes bit the
sawdust several times. The latter was
thoroughly whipped If not practically
knocked out, and the decision of Ref
eree Murphy, In favor of Gardner, was
a mere perfunctory task.
Announced us n Friendly Sctto.
Two members of the club delighted
the spectators with what the referee said
would be a friendly bout. If friendly
meant a hammer and tongs slugging
match, then indeed It was quit friend
ly. They parted in the last round with
peeled noses and the claret flowing free
ly. The sports went out and refreshed
themselves In the Intermission that fol
Impatince was shown In the shouts
and stamping- of feet that awaited the
coming of Duddy and Judge. At 11.15
they entered the ring. Duddy wore
black trunks and had his hair shorn;
Judge's body was almost bare. Cham
pion James Judge and Richard Eavers
acted as seconds for Judge, and Tim
Murphy, of Rendham, and Thomas
Murray, of MInooka, performed a simi
lar office for Duddy. The latter tipped
the scales at 130 pounds and Judge was
a quarter of a pound heavier. They
tossed for corners and at 11.17 Referee
Murphy ordered the men to shake
hands and begin the de-bate. Joseph
Geueke, of the Nonparlel club, was
First Round In buddy's Favor.
The first round was slightly In Dud
dy's favor and twice Judge clinched to
avoid punishment. Blows rained hard
and fast and the excitement became
so Intense that Chief of Police John H.
Evans threatened to put an end to the
proceedings If better order were not
The second round was spent In vigor

smashes on the face, but ho delivered,

punches Duddy received seemed to have

The third and fourth round both were
pretty well winded. At this stage it
