in which the Fitsaia monsSharkey
1-rize fight was "fixed," and they
were not disappointed. If credence
is to be placed in the 3tory told by
"Australian" Billy Smith, Sharkey's
trainer, Fi'z-ummons was a defeated
man before he left New York. Ac.
cording to Smith's testimony, J J
Groom, J fl Gibbs, U.tnny Lynch,
Sharkey's manager, and Sharkey
himself were the men who composed
the National Athletic Club, before
which organization the now notorious
contest was fought. Thtse four
men, Smith swears, engaged Wyatt
Errp as refrree with the understand
ing that he was to award Sharkty
the fight directly Fi.'z-immcns land-!
ed a body blow or stomach punch
which might be stretched into a
a foul. Erp was to receive $2,500.
for his services. j
On crocs examination Smith
stuck to his story and could not be
shaken. He. also disclosed the fact
that Dr. .Lee was not summoned to
Sharkey's bed-side until two hours
and a half after the fight was oyer.
Lynch, Groom and Gibbs denounce
Smith's te-itimcny as rank perjury.
They claim that Smith demanded
51,000 for his services as trainer, and
declined to accept the 100 tendered
him. Allen, who promises to cor
roborate Smith's testimony to-morrow,
was offered 200, but attempted
to blackmail Sharkey and Lynch in
to paying him double that amount.
Lynch asserts that Alien and
Smith, finding that their attempt at
rxtortion would be futile, went to
Fitzsimmona' attorney and offered
to make certain discourses concern
iug alleged jobbery, which can easily
be disproved. Col. Kowalsky, Fi?z
