Loughery "was in a wobbly state in the second and third rounds and had McFarland been able to land the right kind of punches, it would have surely ended the bout then and there. (...) While (McFarland) won hands down, the rally by Loughery in the fourth and again in the fifth certainly took a whole lot of glory off Packey's victory. In fact Loughery virtually fought McFarland to a standstill in the fifth round. It was in this round that the boy from the Hill showed his strength and ability to come back when things looked the darkest for him. (Washington Post) According to the Philadelphia Item, McFarland won five of the six rounds.

Precise date, location and type of decision (L-KO5 in most versions of McFarland's record) are unknown at present.
It is likely that this is actually the 1903-11-16 bout where Dusty defeated Eddie McFarland by disqualification.
"It has been generally supposed that Packie McFarland is an unbeaten wonder. This sentiment was broken recently when Dusty Miller came forward with the proof that McFarland fought him six rounds before the Watita club in Chicago some four years ago and Miller won an easy decision." (Colorado Springs Gazette, 1908-06-21)
