    Xaat Nights Boxing Contests


    A large crowu in which were scores of leading citizens of Paris and dele- gations


    from Lexington Georgetown and Millersburg saw two lively box ¬ ing contests decided at the opera house last night under the auspices of the Paris Athletic Club Tfae principal event was a ten round go between Kid LaEeber and Louis Heller of Cincinnati which referee Desha Lncas declared a draw Though Lafeber forced the fighting Heller had decidedly the best of the contest cleverly avoiding Lefebera swings and punishing Lefeber considerably The fighting was fast in the fifth sixth and eighth rounds Heller landing often on Lafebers libs and lace and several times on his stomach Lafeber weak- ened


    considerably in these rounds but made a game fight throughout

    The preliminary contest was a swift fifteen round contest between Eddie Parker and Warren Brooks two local boxers Brooks had the advantage in weight reach and quickness but Parker made an excellent fight Louis Lafeber the referee declared the fight a draw

    A ludicrous contest was a free for all scrap between five colored middle weights who did much promiscuous pounding

    Heller and Lafeber were seconded by their brothers

    G T Fields registered at the Hotel Fordham January 10th He was ac- companied

    on a charge of fraudulently ob obtaining lodging the first case of the kind ever tried here A hung jury re ¬ sulted at Wednesdays trial but yes terday in Judge Webbs court a jury fined Fields 15

    Fields was then arrested on a charge of larceny on a warrant sworn out by Mr E M Dickson charging the theft of two valuable law books It is alleged Fields check from Robt Clark Co was in payment for the stolen books Mr Dickson having recovered one of them in Cincinnati The trial was set for Monday at ten a m

    An officer yesterday told The News that it was thought Fields is a slick confidence man Report alleges that law books have been stolen in Winches ter and other Central Kentucky towns by a party who gave the name of Fields to book buyers in Cincinnati

    Fields visited the Paris newspaper offices soon after his advent in the city and represented that his object here was to get up an elaborately illustrated write up or Paris He told The News that he had published twenty two such write ups

    Fields was in no way connected with any Pari6 paper
