I Roped Arena,
I COLMA ARENA. SAX FRANCISCO,
m. Sept. 9. Battling Nelson clinched his
claim to the lightweight pugilistic
championship by defeating Joe Gans for
1 1 the second time at Colmn arena thin nft
I. ernoon. The fight ended in the twenty -first,
round, when Gans., beaten down by
a succession of blows from his sturdy
conqueror, failed to get upon his feet
within tho count of ten. The veteran
colored fighter was severely punished,
but tho champion, too, bore the marks
of battle. From the first clang of the
L pong to the last, moment Nelson forced
T tho fighting, never giving ground, and
t gradually battered down his older and
I less vigorous opponent.
Gans succumbed in t ho twenty -first
round, after being most unmercifully
jj trounced by tho Ind from Uegcwisch.
j; Nelson, in this round, rained right and
j left blows to jaw and body and Gans
J eank to the floor. Mechanically the

Iy Eddie Smith wave his hands, apparent-
j 1' too far gone to hear him count. Not
J until the count of ten was finished did
, Gans, with his face terribly cut and
J with his eyes glnssy, attempt to rise,
f He realized, however, that it was too
p late and feebly declared: "I have posi-
tiveb' fought my last battle."
Fight Is Spectacular,
jr . Tho fight -was spectacular, and at no
jn time did it appear that Gans had a
. chance to win. Timo and again ho
r "would Ehoot wicked puuehes to Nelson's
face and bod.y, but the latter never for
nn instant -wavered. Failing to arrest
tho rushing champion at any stage, Gans
seemed to lose heart and gradually
weakened, though ho often rallied and
fought back fiercely.
Eefereo Smith, after the fight, gave
out tho following statement:
."Gans -was all in after the ninth
round. In the twenty-first both th'e
timekeeper and myself counted ten,
therefore making Nelson tho -winner.
Gans, I believe, did not know he was
nilTlfol Auf Vlllf ?f la -ilief n rr rr.nl! 1, n 4-
lie was, as Nelson had him completely
H. at his mercy and it -was useless for the
game colored lad to take a further beat-
When Gans was seen in his dressing
room -his face presented a terrible pic
j ture. His right eye was closed, tho left
partially so; his lips and noso -were bnd
. ly lacerated and his face puffed out
1 like an inflated balloon. He mumbled
Hp out the following statement:
Hr "I made ono fight too many. Ncl-
Hi Bon is a tough boy and beat mo fairl-.
Hf I will never fight ngain. This is no
Patti farewell, but indeed in enrnest,"
Willio Kcefe. one of Gans's principal
Eccords, said after tho. fight:
"Gans was in after the ninth round.
In tho eleventh I begged- him to allow
me to toss tho sponge into tho ring.
Hj This he would not allow me to do, say-
Hj ing ho preferred to bo knocked out and
j would fight as long as he had tho
j strength to stand. For eleven rounds
Hj: Gans fought on his courage alone, as
he could not land a damaging punch."
K. Nelson said:
i "Gans wns tougher than before. He
1 was in good shnpe and he fought me a
1 diffcront kind of a fight, but I proved
conclusively thai I am his master in
f' any kind of a fight. From now on I
H, will never fight a colored mnn again. I
j shook hands with Billy Papko today,
and we both made this compact.
"I hurt my hand in tho second round,
but kept on .using it, regardless of the
Fight by Bounds.
The first round was In Cans' favor, but
the second went to Nelson. Ho forced
Gans all through and was strong and con
fldent. while Gans appeared worried.
The third round ended In Nelson's fa
T vor, though lie took many hard blows
about the face. Nelson forced Gans at
j every stage nud drew first blood from
1 1 the colored man's nose,
j ' The fourth was about even, with Nel-
j son carrying the fight to Guns every mo-
In the fifth round Gans had the ad
1 vantage, landing repeatedly without a re-
1 turn and without stopping Xolson's
1 ruHhes, Nelson woro n smllo of confi-
1 dence all through the round. Tho sixth
was even, with Nelson devoting his at
r tontlon to Gnns'H body and landing an
occasional good blow,
f Gans had a decided advantage In tho
H fighting in tho seventh round, though 'the
J champion showed no ill effects of the
r innny stiff blows he got. Nelson camo
11 ( right back and took the lead In tho
tj ' eighth, bringing hlood from Gans's mouth
f and hammering the body. The ninth was
1 ' also slightly in Nelson's favor.
. The- tenth was even, but the eleventh
was decidedly In Nelson's favor, and at
Its close Cans appeared quite tired and
his seconds worked vigorously over him.
i J It looked at the close of the twelfth as
Hl If Nelson would win and that It was onlv
K a question of time until ho got the de-
jj clslon. Nelson wore his man down with
fi his ceaseless rushes.
Hf Nelson Is Strong.
Hl Gans held Nelson off for a time In the
j thirteenth, but Just at the close of the
V' round the champion landed a hard loft
H' to the mouth and started the blood afresh.
Nelson was strong and confident while
Hl. Gans appeared to he tiring.
Hfj The fourteenth was even. Gnns taking
a brace and gave as good as he took from
K' tho rushing Dane.
The fifteenth was the hardest of the
D fight up to this lime. Gans caught Ncl-
R 4 eon with a terrific right on tho mo -th and
f nose and brought tho blood in n s'reani.
tf Both were bleeding freely ns the round
closed, but Gans appeared tired and his
blows lacked force.
To the surprise of thf crowd, Gans ral
H: lied In tho sixteenth and battered .Nelson
about the face with avery variety of
blow, taking a good load for the round.
Signs of Defeat.
H' It was all Nelson In the twentieth, and
t the close it looked as if Gans would

not bo ablo to stand the pace much
Nelson fought Hko a demon, landing
some awful blows on Gans's face and
body, and defeat wns written on Gans's
face ta he tumbled into his chair.
The end came in the twenty-first. Nel
son sent In rights and lefts to tho jaw
which staggered Gans. and then delivered
a rain of blows to the body and head.
Gans sought to cover up, but Nelson was
merciless. Ho rushed Gans to the ropes
and landed practically at will. He drove
hlni to tho ropes, Guns finally dropping
to the mat. more from weakness than
from the force of the blows He tried tt5
get up within the ten seconds, but was
slow, and was counted out.
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 9. Stanley ICet

pugilist, who was so badly beaten about
the fnce by Billy-Papko In their fight

automobile and go to tho baths. Ho is

team entered. In the International balloon
race to take place in Berlin on October 11
has lost another member in Allen R.
Hawloy. who llnds that business will not
permit of his sailing for Europe today as
he Intended. Ir. Hawloy's Inability to
take part In tho race follows closeiy on
the decision of Gen. Allen, chief of tho
army signal sen-Ice. that Lieut. Frank
P. Lahm cannot be spared to go to Ger
many to compete.
Lieut. Lahm is superintending, with
other army officers, tho tests that aro

more use hero at present than com
peting in the b.'Uloon trophy at Berlin.
N. H. Arnold will take Lieut. Lahm's
placo and ho will bo the pilot of the
new balloon St Louis, which the St.
Louis Aero club had constructed in Paris
for the race. Mr. Arnolo. is a compara
tively new aeronaut, having but lately
received his pilot's license, but he ' has

KEENE IS DISPOSING

Tribune Special Sporting Service.
NEW YORK, Sept. 0. .Tames T?.
Keeno's decision to look for n market
for his horses in foreign countries
means a tremendous loss to tho thor
oughbred interests of America. Of all
the great breeding farms in the coun
try, tho best blood is to be found at
Castleton, nnd tho loss ofi even a part
of its product is a blow to tho turf.
Some weeks ago twenty of the Cnstlo
ton yearlings were sent to England and
disposed of at the Newmarket July
sales, whero they brought, nn averago
price of over $1000 npiece. More re
cently lie shipped n largo number of
sires, brood mares and yearlings to tho
"It lias been reported that I intend
to raep a string ol horses in England,
but T have no such intention, ' said
Mr. Kecnc, in conversation with an in
timate friond tho other day. "It is nn
I awful wrench for me to part with my
! yearlings, but it seems tho only thing
I to do Were- I to go to England to
rneo for my pleasure, as I havo done
here, it woulrl mean setting up an es
tablishment nnd living there. To race
horses for sport a man must give up his
time to n certain extent, and at least
ho must bo on tho ground. I havo uo
desiro to leave this country, and I havo
bred moro horses than T can possibly
raco under tho present conditions.
Therefore somo must bo disposed of,
and tho only question is to look for
tho best market."
AT TRAYERS ISLAND
Tribune Special Sporting Service
NEW YORK, Sept. fJ Entries havo
poured in for the 6enior championship
of the Metropolitan association, which
aro to bo held at Travers Island, tho
summer homo of the New York Athletic
club, on Saturday next. All tho larger
clubs in tho Metropolitan association
havo their full teams in training for
tho events, nnd many of the athletes
who won national honors at tho Ol3'mpic
games will participate.
Advices havo been received from
nbroad stating that the full team that
competed in tho Olvmpic games repre
senting America will have returnod to
America by the timo of the games, and
the track, and field championship com
mittee of tho Metropolitan association
took this fact into consideration when
setting the date for the meet.
It is the intention of the Metropolitan
track and field championship commit
teo to invite as honorary guests to tho
meet all the athletes from other asso
ciations than the Metropolitan who
represented America in the Olympic
games who arc in the East at tho time
of the meet.
Empire City Costly Meet.
Tribune Special Sporting Service.
NEW YORK, Sept. 0. Tho Empiro
City meeting cost President James But
ler at least $JO,000 i good, hard cash
and no end of annoyance nnd trouble.
Ilia sole purpose, however, was to live
up to his obligations to horsemen and to
do what he could in the interest of
the turf. That ho feels confident that
lime will straighten out racing affairs
is positive, and he, no doubt, has been
well advised on tho subject by his coun
sel. This should givo lovers of the
thoroughbred somo heart for the futuro
of the turf.
Prom a racing standpoint tho meeting
was a. success. Tho sport was good, and
tho track holds a world's record, which
is something that will stay on tho an
nals of the American turf. Beforo an
other season dawns it is moro than prob
nblo that Mr. Butler will bo a much
moro important man in racing affairs
than ho has ever been. That ho de
serves pronounced recognition is the
universal opinion of nil interested in the
Dolanoy's New Champion.
Tribune Special Sporting Service.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sopt. 0. "Tom
my" Burns, when he returns to theso
shores, will have another formidable
challenger in "Al." Kaufman who has
been held in reserve by "Billj-" Dela
noy for some mouths, and who so clearly
outclassed Flynn in his mntch last week
that he must bo classed with the stars
of the heavyweights, Dclauey inado
"Jim" Corbett a world's champion and
then took up "Jim" Jeffries and made
a champion of the boilormaker. This,
in itself, must make fighting enthusiasts
take "somo stock" in what Dolanoy
Delanncy declares Kaufman is tho
best heavyweight working today and
with a little more experience he is go
ing to bo the world's champion. Burns
will be compelled to give him a match
nnd if they ever meet Kaufman will
show his su'pcriorit'.

NEW YORK, Sept. 9. Mllwaukco may
soon be the scene of operations of an
other fight trust, not, of course, on as
largo a scale as that In San Francisco,
but of scope enough to handle tho boxing
proposition In that section of tho country.
Tho would-bo magnates proposo that the
officers of the thrco clubs in the city
get together and arrange dates satisfac
tory to all, besides determining the maxi
mum percontago to be paid star boxers.
Such a combination Is a wlso plan, for It
Is almost a certainty that If tho threo
clubs do not combine forces nnd work In
harmonv their Houabblcs will sound the
knell of boxing In Milwaukee.
