A PICTURE OF

lather unceremoniously two months ago,
stood In the pilot house of the tut; W. B.

An Interviewer had Just Inquired If
the Australian would be willing to flght

sorbed In tho contemplation of the tall
ti'Wtr of the Woolworth Building, Finally
he shook off the spell of wonderment
The great Leslie spoke. i
"I have been told that Wlllard U

thfUf i I will flght him, or any other 1
in In America." he said to the re
porter for Tub 8pn, who was the only
representative of a morning paper on the
To the deep chagrin of a host ofi
American handlers of boxern, Darcy i
brought his own manager In the person
of E. T. O'fiulllvnn. The pair had left
the steamship Cushlng at Quarantine
and were on board tho Dalxtll, chartered
by Tex Hlckard, when the Immigration
officials arrived on the scene. To say
that the Immigration men were Irritated
le putting It mildly.
They megaphoned the captain of the
Cashing asking what he meant by per
mitting the boxer to leave the C'uahlng
before the Immigration Department had
an opportunity to examine Into Darcy's
condition, mentally, physically and
I.onli Into Hare's Health.
The captain made his excuses anil then
retired to his cabin. Whereupon the Im
migration officials turned their attention
to Tex rtlckard on the tug.
"Darcy must go back on the steamship
till we have looked Into his case !"
shouted Dm otilclal.
"Why not come over here on the tug?"
queried Hlckard with customary suavity.
A compromise was finally effected un
der the terms of which Darcy and his
manager climbed aboard the Immigra
tion boat and submitted to an examina
tion by tho representatives of that de
partment. After a close Inspection of the lighter,
who looked for all the world like a pros
perous tradesman, one of the Immigra
tion squad asked, "Are you In good
"1 could go Into the ring on ten days
notice." said the champion.
After satisfying themselves that Darcy
was not likely to become a charge on
the nation, that he was not afflicted with
contagious disease and that h wan
po'sewed of sufllclent funds to maintain
him in comfort till he found work,
the ofllclals passed him back to the tug
and he went on his way rejoicing.
Muscular Power Apparent.
Those who expected that Darcy would j
oe iciunu negnmeu wiin uiri in mo
stokehold of the Cushlng were disap
pointed. On the contrary', they saw a
nitty looking man, wearing a dark gray
soft hat, a tasteful suit of dark hlue

Fifth and sixth places went to the Dro-bach-lllll

after thc fifteenth Herlln sptlnt, forcing
Drulinch to do all the riding, the team
finished as low as It did.

Kgg ami Dupuy struck their knockout
blow Just as the Harden was filling tip
ami tho spectatorj were getting ready
for tho Herlln sprints. Tluee primes at
one imln had been held. The last mm
had been won by Itegglo McXamara
after n clotfo race.
Mc.Namar.i's strenuous excttlons nan
left him spent and winded. Most of the
other riders also were pulling and blow-

mem to do or die.

Hunehlng himself far over Ills handle ,

aii'l was away "on a mad hurst before
the other ruler knew what had hap
pened. Twice Kgg circled the ttack at
n oyelonlo clip beforo he was relieved
by Dupuy. In quick reliefs the Swiss
and thc Ilclglau bang-banged away In
terrlllo sprints. Flashing up the
stretches Ilk streaks of lightning and
swooping tho curves like striking hawks
,tho two Kuropeans etretched their lead (
from n quarter of a lap to half n lap.
Mlder after rider was passed, and soon
thn two Kuropeans had lapped all teams
except the McXaniaro-Hpears, Madden
Itoot and ilill-Drobacli combinations,
McNamaro, Madden and Hill were '
only a quarter of a lap in front of Kgg.
Ileggle wan practically dead on his
wheel. He was laboring badly and his i
wheel was ilgt-igglng as he htrove '
McWiiiiaran 1 desperately to prevent Kgg irom eaten
... I.apolnt I Ing him. Pedaling for dear life Kgg
crawled up and upon the trio that re
malntd untapped and Anally caught and
passed them. Victory was his and ho
raised his hand partly to call the atten

had succeeded In gaining tho coveted
laps and partly as a gesture of triumph,
Tin building hud been a I lei! lam dur

under the ro.ira that greeted Kgg and
Dupuy after their successful coup. Tho
fans were almost frantic with excite
ment and they cheered tho victorious
riders for several mlnules.

Just after Kgg and Dupuy had gained
the lap tho sprint was brought to nil
end by a spill on the Twenty-sixth
street and Fourth avenun embankment.
Madden and Cameron, circling the, turn,
rubbed wheals willi McXamara. Ileggle
went down and took Do Uncles with him,
Tho Helglnn was knocked unconscious
by his heavy full, hut revived quickly.

James Iirooks of the Mohawk Athletic
I Club. Kyronen ran the distance In !
'hours .11 minutes nnd 51 2-S seconds.
Tho Finn was cold and fatigued when
ho staggered across the finish line, but a

him, and after declaring that the rogrso
