Great Fight Is
Joy of Joygl An International
boxing mntcli right In our midst!
How tho sports wakened up when
the news that Peter Qunstret of the
Rood ship Cambrian wns tnntched to
light Nelson, the durable! Say, a
real howl of delight went up from
the fight fans, and many a staid pa
ter began to frame up some kind of
decent oxcuso to hand out to mater,
for his trip down town on Saturday
night. K or) oiio who can possibly
manage It will bo crowded .within
the Orphcum walls and the show
should bo n magnificent one. Three
inellinliiarles nil of which under or
dinary conditions would be star
turns will bo pulled off. Why tho
Quorstret-Nelcon fight nlono would
draw a full house. Then consider
the McCollough-Sharkey bout: that
too will bo n stellar event which will
touch tho nudlencp In tho right spot:
Then tho comet net between "Kid"
Terry nnd Corporal lllrd will begin,
and If anyono Is not satisfied wltn
this turn ho had better not go to
Paradise when he pegs out, because
he would at" once roglstcr'n kick
about the fit of his hulo nnd get Into
plllkla with Peter.
Tho Sullivan-Peterson scrap Is sure
going to be a rnttllng one, and one
thut will stir tho "possum" In every
body who Is lucky enough to be prcs.
It Is hard to say who will win tho
big fight, as both men nro fit to fight!
ror u kingdom, nnd are out after
each other's scalps, lloth feel as con
fldcnt as possible, and, although tho
two men are, of course, n bit anx
ious, that feeling of unrest will pibti
ably wear off as soon as they Btep
Into tho ring.
Judging from the former fight put
up by theso two boxers, there can bo
no doubt nbout what sort of a scrap
Is coming off tomorrow night. It Is
going to bo a pench, and It will prob
ably end in a knockout. The referee
will no hayo much trouble this time
na the affair Is to be a clean-break
fight. In fact, all four matches aro
to be fought under the no-hlttlng-ln-clinches
clause. And n good Job It
Is, too, for the weary hanging on
nnd wrestling business tires nnd dls
gusts spectators who pay their mon
ey to seo boxing, not n luiKcv-niucuv
love nffalr. Wo can see plenty of"
tnni Kind of dope around the narks
any old evening. Well, ono thing Is'
sure, and that is that this scrap Is
going to bo -no sweetheart stunt, and
will be more like a Texns feud of
the old days, than anything else.
Sullivan, as usual, seems to be tho
rnvorlte, although Peterson has many
friends who swear by his chauci.
There Is not much lovo lost between
tho two training camps and every
thing points to a terrific fight. Jack
McFudden reckons his man cannot
lose, whilst Hlnes, Peterson's train
er, says Pete will put It all over Dick
on Saturday night.
Quastrct comes Into the limelight
with great reputation. He Is cred
ited with hnvlns remained In tho
ring with Joe Walcott for twelve
sounds. It wus a decision fight and
Walcott got tho verdict by u nanow
Thlu being a fact places Peter In
Class Ono at his weight, and tho lo
cal lag will have to extend himself
a bit to make good. Hdwover, Nel
son has had no trouble so far In any
ot his fights, and lias won them all
easily. Tho llrltlsh bluejackots will
no 'doubt bo present u't the tleht In
Inrgu uiimbets nnd thulr officers will,
prob.ihly line the ringside to cheer
their countryman on to victory. Oh!.
It sure is going to be a great night's
fun, so go' busy nnd grab u ticket
pr elre you'll bo left as sine us fute.

is sojourning In San Francisco. He

from 10 1-2 seconds to 9 2-r seconds,

and football clubs; Tt)e flrBt was won
by St. vMarys, time IMS 2-5; tho sec

Prcd. Kobson ot Ilromborough, the
young player who hus come to t,hc
fore this year by tlelng for eighteenth
place In tho Open Championship, and
reaching the final ot the $1200 tour
nament, has Just given further cvl
denco of his ability by beating Geo.
Duncan, tho famous Stanford Hills
professional, in a match of 3G holes
at Conway, on the Carnarvonshire
Club's course, by 6 up and 4 to play.
At times Kobson displayed histoid
weakness thut tendency to hook his
tee shots, which was so noticeable
when ho met II. Taylor In the final
of tho tournament ut Mid-Surrey,
but, taken all round, he showed
splendid form. Ills short game wus
particularly good.. At tho outset the
strugglo was of tho ding-dong sort,
but by winning the eighth and ninth
holes In the morning' Robson'lald tho
foundation of a very creditable vic
tory. Turning 2 up, ho had In
creased his adynntago to i at the
end of tho morning round. In the
afternoon u very strong wind sprung
up, nnd this bothered both men con
siderably. Kobson, howeyer, alter
being brought back to 2 tip at the
eighth hole, drew away again, nnd
finished tho mutch on tho 14th green
by holing an 8-foot putt. The weu
ther was tine und warm, and the
tour se, situate In one of tho most pic
turesquo parts ot Wules, was In first,
class condition. Neither pluycr's
stroke round touched the record ot
C9 which Duncan established when
ho was professional to the club

their stroke round did not trmililn
them, and rlchtlv so n n ,r,wui
match player does not care two
straws about his round. Ills only
aim Is to beat Ills opponent. Dun
can's play throughout was much more
studied and careful than usual, as
for once, at any rate, he abandoned
much of his seemingly reckless and
careless style of play. '

V. C. Ilergln of tho Wnlklkl Inn
having como through with an offer
of nn order on Mclnerny for a pair

Works nlso presented a turkey nnd
two cases of assorted Bod,ns. respect
ively. Progrums will be distributed gratis
ut the sturtlng pluce and theso cards
will show the complete list of the
competitors, and the numbers under
which they will run.
Nigel Jackson has been doing some
fine runs lately, nnd has cut out fif
teen miles In one hour fifty minutes.
Ills opinion Is that the race will bo
won In nbout four hours. Cheatham
Is another man who Is making good,
and Srharsch may be depended upon
to run a great raco.
Jay Kuhns is not feeling very well
lately and It is a great pity. This
)ouug athlete' was Injured at foot
bull some time ugo and still feels
the effect!. Kuhns Is a noted tied
on the big Island and has been all
over the couutry on foot. A stroll
fropi Wulplo (lulch to Hllo, 7fi miles,
used to be one of his fuvorlte stunts.
Another Jaunt that he often made
was from KuKulhnole to Wnlmoa und
back. This was only 28 inlles, up
tho side of a .mountain, 'and wus
treated usnn after-dinner stroll. It
II real html luck for Ifuhns having to
quit running Just now, us he would
huvo gone' so close to winning tho
llalelwa Miirullmn Unit there would
huvo been1 nothing In it.
