KILRAIN WENT DOWN O'Donnell Has the Best! of the Coney Island Fight. FOUGHT OVER AN HOUR. The Bout Is Then Stopped at the Request of the Police. FOUGHT AROUND THE RING. One More Heavy Punch From O'Donnell Would Have Settled the Baltimore Fighter. CONEY ISLAND, New York, May 6.— Since Goddard and Maher fought here in December, 1892, there has not been a heavy-weight contest brought off in the vicinity of New York. The fact that Jake Kilrain of Baltimore and Steve O'Donnell of Australia were to meet here to-night at catch-weights in a twenty-five round go at tracted a large crowd of sports, as every person who had an opportunity was anx ious to see these heavy-weight pugilists prove which was the better man after the very unsatisfactory ten-round draw which they fought a short time ago in Balti more.

Both the entries of the Elmwood stock farm, Don Ctesar and Roma, ran very disappointing races. Small fields were the rule yesterday. There were but thirty-four starters in the different events.
