By covering 100 meters in 10 3-5
seconds at an indoors meet a few
, nights ago, Alvah T. Meyer, reprc-
senting the Irish-American Club of
Nuv York, bettered by one-fifth of
'a second the world's record held
jointly by James Rector and Reggie
, Walker in the London Olympics of
I'JOS. Six watches timed Meyer
mnd five agreed on his record per
; formance. Meyer is the sensation
of the athletic season around the
Metropolitan district and is touted
by the experts-to equal 9 3 5 seconds
between now and the time of the
Olympic panics. Bernie Wcfors,
one of America's greatest sprinters
in the late 80s, in speaking of
Meyer's showing, says: "Meyer is
truly a wonderful runner and unless
the unforeseen occurs, I look for
him to beat hc best time for the
century. He is just the caliber of
a sprinter America needs to trim
our foreign competitors in the
Swedish games this summer.
Seven years after Corbctt whipped
Terry McGoern at Hartford the
two fighters were appearing on the
stage together in Philadelphia.
During their exhibition - Corbett
smiled at Terry and chirped:
"Know what day this is?"
"No,"' was the reply.
"Well, seven years today I flat
tened you and sent you on the
toboggan," blurted Corbett.
Terry's eye gleamed with ven
geance and with all his power ho
cracked Corbett on the jaw. The
latter dropped cold . Joe Humphries,
who managed the show, saw what
came off, und in a flush was on the
stage and dragged Corbett to the
"Hoy!" yelled Joe. "Get the
carpenters. Uoroett tripped over
this nail and hurt himself.''
The carpenters rushed on the
stage and started slamming the
floor with their hammers. The
audience never wised up to what
happened, but after that Humphries
got big gloves.

no intention of coming back into
the ring in person, reports to the
contrary notwithstanding. But ho
is coming back as the backer ol his
husky son. Bob Fitzsinnnons Jr
whom he has been secretly training
'as a white hope" at his place at
Duruiellau, N. J. Tho junior Fitz
simmons is a good-looking, husky
young fellow of 1G. He is 6 feet
" tall, weighs 1G0 pounds of solid
muscle, and has a punch in both
hands, hacked by all the ring craft
and generalship that his clever sire
has been able to impart to him in :
'long and careful training. Fitzsiin
mons, lather ami sou, live on a
largo farm at the little village of
Dimnelliui, and spend their time in
summer tilling the soil and plant
ing, and in the winter in roaming
around the grounds, sparring and
training. Both are fit to fight at a
minute's notice, but the boy is th
; only one likely to take up the fight
question seriously. Bob Sr., has
great hopes of the lad winning as
many laurels as his illustrious
As, in view of the younger's age,
it is not likely that any very serious
attempt will Ikj made for a year or
two to snatch the championship
wreath from Johnson, it is probablo

fundamental is on a business basis
So uncertain did the project
seem ttiat up to tlie present no
general canvas has been made for
subscribers for the stock. A num
ber of people, nearly all of whom
arc directly interested in tlie sugar
business here, and who heard of the
matter through their friends, have
sent in subscriptions, and more
have asked to bo notified when it
was decided to go ahead."
The capital of the company has
been placed at $400,000.00 divided
into -10,000 shares of $ 10.00 each.
It U planned to issue all at once.
The stock will be sold at par, 10
of the purchase price, that is SI. 00
per share to be paid on dall, and
the balance probably at a rate not
exceeding 10 per month. Later
bonds will be issued for a similar
All of the Directors have sub
scribed for stock on identically the.
same terms on which that not yet
taken will be offered for general
subscription, that is at par.
The Company's mill win be locat
ed less than a mile from the town
of San Carlos. Hero an excellent
harbor one' of only two on the
island is formed by a projecting
point of land and an island, and
water sufficiently deep for ocean
going vessels will bo reached by the
Company's wharf. This will enable
sugar to bo shipped direct.
For the present it is planned to
construct alxmt ten miles of per
manent railroad. A sufficient area
will be tributary to this track to
enable tho mill to turn out about
12,000 tuns of sugar in a season.
By the terms of the contract,
which runs for 30 years from 1914,
the Mill Company is to receivo40
of Jho sugar produced for hauling
the cane, manufacturing sugar and
providing containers for same. Tho
planters are at present grinding
their cane with antiquated three
roller mills, Owing to the great
waste incurred by these methods,
in contrast to tho efficient results
obtained by modern mills, the Com
pany will bo able to realize a hand
some profit and at the same time
tho planters will not only bo saved
the expense of grinding their cane
but will receive more from their
G0 of the 96 sugar turned out
by a modern mill than they now
get from their total output of low
grade sugar. The result is that the
Mill Company has already received
requests from planters in tho south
ern end of the district to bo allowed
to sign the contracts and it is
planned to ultimately grind for all
the plantations in the district,
which has been estimated to be
capable of producing 20,000 tons
when fully developed.
Tho Mill will bo ready for opera
tion by tho latter part of 1913, and
as the cane is already growing,
grinding can be commenced at once,
so that the Company should be on
a dividend paying basis in tho fol
lowing year. The Company's earn
ing capacity will of course be affect
ed by many factors, such as price
of sugar, quantity of. cane ground,
etc., but, taking as a basis 12,000
tons of sugar and 3.75 as tho aver
