Wrestling Match

Sacramento Daily Record-Union – December 7, 1885

GRASS VALLEY, December 6th. – The wrestling match last night between Jack Carkeek, of this place, and J. Cudihea, for $250 a side, took place before a large attendance, at Empire Hall.  The match was to have been best two in three falls at collar-and-elbow style.  Although this was Cudihea’s favorite style, he acted on the defense, while Carkeek forced the play for two hours without getting a fall.  At the end of that time Cudihea wished it to be called a draw.  Carkeek refused, unless he got the whole of the gate receipts, which were finally awarded to him, Cudihea declining his proposition to change it into any other style of match and wrestle it out.
