DWVER THE VICTOR.
Secured Two Straight Falls from
Gideon Perry, at the Scranton Bi
cycle Club, Saturday Night.
Prof. M. J. Dwyer once more demon
strated his skill as a wrestler, Satur
day night, by throwing C.ldeon Perry,
the Canadian wrestler, twice In succes
sion at the Scranton Bicycle club, In
the presence of over 1100 persons.
The two men stepped on the mat
shortly after lo o'clock, and when they
had thrown aside their dressing robes,
appeared to the casual observer to be
very unevenly mulched. Perry, who
stands feet ! inches tall, weighed In
at 100 pounds, while Dwyer, who is six
Inches shorter, weighed about lliO. Those
who had seen Dwyer wrestle here last
winter and who knew of the strength
resting in his phenomenally broad
shoulders ami well-develoiied biceps,
realized that Perry hud a pretty big
job on bis hands.
Perry was the aggressor at the stmt
and kept Dwyer on the defensive for
upwards of fifteen minutes. Try as hard
as he could, however, he could not se
cure a fall. Dwyer's remarkable quick
ness enabled him to wriggle out of
many a dangerous hold, mid when he
got his second wind lie started in on
the offensive himself.
Dwyer finally got Perry on his side
and secured a half-nelson. He twisted
his right leg around the big man's anil
began to force him over on his back.
Perry apparently realized that the
game was up, but he died hard. The
muscles mi Dwyer's back stood out like
knotted cords as he slowly, but surely,
forced Perry inch by Inch over on his
back. It took him about four minutes
to do so, and when the full hud been
secured he was loudly applauded. The
time of the fall was .'!1 minutes, 10 sec
onds. After a ten minutes' Intermission the
two men went at it again, and this time
Dwyer was the aggressor all through.
He sailed 111 from the start and never
gave Perry a moment's rest. The latter
was game, however, and within ten
minutes had worked himself out of
three holds In an almost miraculous
muuiicr. Dwyer llnnlly secured another
half-nelson and bore the big man down
a second time.
The match was for a side bet of $100
and 7."i per cent, of the gate receipts.
The other -'3 per cent, of the gate re
ceipts went to the loser. Hugh Keeniin
acted as referee, while Smith Gorman
