was too badly beaten to allow any squabbling over that fact, the Yankees
are busy getting up lies to show that there was foul play.
The lying is so especially characteristic of the Yankees
, that we give an example from the Philadelphia Inquirer
, who went to Europe
to witness the great fight between Heenan
, have returned, and tell, to say the least, a strange story, one, if true, which speaks but poorly for "English fair play." Among these parties returned are Tim Heenan
, Con. Fitzgerald
, John Goope
, and Frank McIntyre
These men corroborate the testimony heretofore published of the unfitness of Heenan
's seconds, who failed to claim "time" on one or two stated occasions, when king was unable to "put in an appearance," owing to his weakness from Heenan
is accused of being under the influence of two frequent libations, showing himself a better bottle holder
His treatment of the "Boy" was said to be rough and unnatural, grabbing him by the head and ears.
Jerry Noon, so Fitzgerald
says, white Heenan
was lying on the ground, attempted to dislocate his thumb, exclaiming: "He'll have no more need of that hand." The falls given King
are said to have been terrific, and King
's second is accused of catching him once under a heavy fall, which would have probably laid him out. A letter, received by a well known "billtardist." in this city, from England
, (and from one who knows what be is writing,) says that "Heenan
was drugged." He says, also, that four physicians, who attended Heenan
after the fight, stand ready to publish their sworn affidavits to the effect that his system was full of chloroform, but Heenan
will not permit it.
