The Pawtucket Times – January 15, 1914
ATTLEBORO, Jan 15. – In a wrestling match at Brownell Hall last night Cyclone Burns of Boston put an end to “Scotty” McPhee’s ambitions when he threw the Scotchman twice in succession. Although the first fall took some strenuous exertion on Burns part the second fall came shortly after the start of the last bout and Burns showed some flashes of his real speed for the few minutes they were on the mat. Lawson Pinkham succumbed to Crackerjack Butler of Brockton but it took three falls before a decision was reached. Burns secured the first fall on a head chancery and arm hold in 24 minutes. The second came in 24 minutes on a crotch and arm hold. The first fall in the prelim went to Pinkham in 26 minutes on a rear half Nelson. The second was Butler’s in 9 minutes and 28 seconds on a wrist and crotch hold while the third went to Butler in 12 minutes when he got a toe hold. The Pinkham-Butler match was not very fast although interesting because of the tactics of the two men. Butler used the better style and had some real speed at times.
