Daily Alta California – November 23, 1885

GRASS VALLEY, November 22d. – In the wrestling match held here last night between Jack Carkeek, champion Danish wrestler of the coast, and J. D. Cudihea of Leadville, Col., for $100 a side, Cudihea won the choice for first style of wrestling and chose his own style, collar and elbow.  There was some fast work done for half an hour or more, when Carkeek finally threw his man to the floor and fell heavily on him, Cudihea sustaining a bad wrench of his shoulder, so that he was unable to continue the match, which was awarded to Carkeek, with the stakes.
