(XewYork, Oct 31. The grent Choyn-sW-Goiifrey
fight crowded the Coney
Island Athletic Club to-night, and the spec
ulators felt that they had the worth of their
nibney when they saw the blonde Hebrew
bay knock out his dusky foe in the 15th
round. Preceding the great $5,000 battle
vps a lively go between Dolly Lyons, of
2ew Xork, and Kid Hocan, of Brooklyn.
T3ie Kid fought Bill Plimmer once and
Lyons was George Dixon's sparring
partner. There was a purse
.hung up for a ten-round scrap
' between these two at 115 pounds, but Lyons
forfeited part of the sum by not being at
weight. The men fought at catch weights
for the remainder. The youngsters fought
a rattling bout, Hogan knocking his man
down three times and Lyons scoring one.
Hogan's superior work got him the decision.
On the conclusion of the Hogan-Lyons
fight the 6.000 persons present chatted ani
matedly about the merits of Godlrey ana
Clioynski and commented upon the proba
bility of Hogan going under had he fought
Lyons to a finish.
The Big Men Appear.
At 9:50 o'clock official announcer Fred
Burns entered the ring and told the assem
bly all about the contest between the stars
for the $5,000 prize. He told tbem xhat
Dominick O'Malley, of New Orleans,
would time for Clioynski and that Ilobert
Stoll, of New York, would look after the
club's interests at the gong. "Win. lleedy,
of Lewiston, Me., held the watch for God
frey. At precisely 9:55 Choynski's blond
head showing above the upturned collar
of a huge ulster towered above
the crowd leading from the dres
sing room. At bis heels trotted
"Old Chocolate." as Godfrey Is called. The
colored fighter's bulsins calves.Iong, stronir
arms, and small, cone-shuned head have
been familiar In the prize rin-j for many
years, both J".:ist and West of the Rockies.
Chovnski's lace Is brisht and intelligent,
Ills skin as pink and white as a dairy maid's.
Like Corbett he w ears his hair pompadour.
Al Smith, who has acted for the Coney
Island Club for some lime, declined to act
owing to indisposition, and the club ap
pointed John Eckhart in his stead. lie
fore commencing hostilities there was a
spirited talk in the middle of the i-lngie-gatdlnfr
the rule governing clinching.
Clioynski wore red tiithts, while Godfrey's
netiier limbs were clad in blue. Both wore
leather fighting snoes and were stripped to
the waist. Cboyniki was seconded by John
WcVey, of Pnllartelphla: Jimmy Carroll, of

lie planted his left m the colored man's
stomach as the round closed.
In round three Clioynski began with a
Jett-nanderon tho wind, and dodged God
frey's louime. GodfreV then chased the
white boy, but Chovnski was as elusive as
Corbett. Ilo was finally corneied. but got
three terrific lefts on Godfrey's juw. Choyn
skl. by beautiful struight-arm work, held
GoJfrev off. Godfmy's eyes wore closed
hon the round ended.
In the fourth round Choynskl got in twice
on Godfrey's wind, milking tho colored man
wince. Godfrey tried all tho rushes used by
lilm with so much success In his other bat
tle", but tho wliito lad was too clever and
was never w here Godfrey thought he was.
In the last halt minute Godfrey planted his
right twice on the Calllornian's back. One
hundred dollars to $00 on Choynskl was
whispered In the boxes.
In the fifth ronnd Godfrey camo in,
Clioynski side-stepping away Irom danger
and giving the colored man a rib roaster as
. lie wont. Joe gave Godlrey two stinging
" blows on the back. "Old Chocolate" de
livered a terrific right hnnder over the
lieart, stacgering Choynskl to the ropes. ne
followed it with a teniflc smash with the
right oil the eye that drew blood.
Godfrey Slakes a Good Rally.
In the sixth round no execution was done
on cither side until Godfrey hit his opponent
on the mouth. Ilo got two left banders on
the neck in return. Choynskl appeared to
be losing his stile, nnd missed two right
In tho seventh round Godfi ev lea oft nnrt

' white man's head went back with a Jerk.
Choynskl missed a left hand swing, but bit
the colored man twice on the stomach and
neck heavily. They fousht on the ropes,
Clioynski escaping a wicked upper cut nnd
getting in a hard left hand drive on God-
,. frey's stomach.
Eighth ronnd Godfrey got a straicht left
on the stomach. Godfrey then got home on
Choj n ski's so re eye. The latter landed on
the chin. Both landed in two splendid
rallies, and as they stepped back Godlrey
scoied a pretty knockdown. Battling flut-ln"-,
ensued until tho gong rang. "
In the ninth round a pretty counter saw
'both get home on the stomach but the
white man got in two hard smashes on the
stomach in quick succession and followed
It up with another. He then hit Godfrey on
the damaged eye.
In tenth lound Choynskl landed twice
-.getting one on the neck in return. Both

bis man to the ropes and smashed him on
the month. Choynskl was careless and like
a flah Godfrey upper cat him with terrific
force. Joe squared matters by repeated
thrusts on the stomach.
It Was Hot and Furious.
In the eleventh both men fought for tho
" body, Godfrey assuming the offensive. He
left an opening, and got one on the ear and
another on the chin. Choynskl again got in
on the chin twice, and then on the stomach.
The colored man's mouth was swollen and
uoairey ica on in tne twelfth with his left
on Joe's stomach, and got a hard strai'Mit
left over tho heart. Choynskl then visited
the colored man's mouth, and was thrown a
moment later. He then jabbed Godfrey
twice on the month, and In the rally on the
ropes cot a right and left on the mouth and
ear. Before the gong sounded there was a
rapid exchange, and Choynskl slipped to
the ground, many thinking It a knock down,
bnt It was not. r
In round 13 Godfrey rushed in and
Clioynski went to the ropes, then ran out or
danger on nil fours. Choynskl got In two
rattling blows on the stomach and neck and
followed It up with blows on tho breast,

of the ring, Choynskl scoring three times on

WA8HrRQTO!f. Oct. 3L According to the
latest baseball story here, BuckEwingls to
become a member of the local team, an
agroement naving been made between the
Wagners and tbe New Tork management to
that effect. It is understood, also, that
Danny Richardson Is to return to the New
Tnrks as a part of this deal, and that a good
stiff price has been promised for the king or
second basemen and shortstops. It has been
suggested that by this means Klchardson
could be prevailed upon not to push his
threatened suit against the local manage
ment lor advance money paid to him. The
local patrons of the game are up in arms
against such a deal as has been proposed.
Thev contond that if Ewlng 1b not good
enough for New Tork, he certainly wHl not
benefit Washington, for new and stronger
plnyers are needed to keep them out of the
last hole. One thing is certain, however;
the Wagners will have to stir themselves
considerably to retain the confidence of the
lovers of tho national pastime In this city.

The L. A. W. Racing Board Has a Diffi
cult yuestlon to Tackle.
New Yore, Oct. 31. Since the meeting of
the Bacing Board of the Leaguo of Ameri
can Wheelmen, held at Chicago last week,
much speculation has been .indulged In as to
the decision arrived at regarding the ama
teur question. There has been preserved a
decided silence by all the members of the
board bearing on this subject, which Is of
such vital Importance to the membership of
the organization at large. That a change
has been decided upon is admitted, and only
tbc necessary care which must be exercised
in formulating the wording of the new rules
accounts for the reticence displayed on the
There are to-day in tho amateur fold of
the League of American Wheelmen two
classes ot racing men tho fast, and, conse
quently, prominent riders, who takd ad
vantage of the loose provision of the pres
ent amateur rules to gain a vlehood
thereby, and the amateur whose lack of
any great speed rolegates him to a minor
position In the racing world, and who pro
portionately has no market value. The
lormer class are regularly paid by the man
ufacturer to ride his make of wheel through
the medium or various clubs, who put out
the racing teams under their colors and
These men are admittedly receiving the
same supportas the amateur who lacks the
advantage of first-class trainers and all ex
penses paid. This, briefly, Is the only one
which confronts the racing board, and a
solution or the difficulty is not easy to ar
rive at. It is plain that the men must be
separated. In Justice to all, that an equal
b.isls must be established, and yet not split
the organization upon the rock of profes
sionalism. At present the amateur rule is a
farce, and the powers that do cannot Ignore
the tact that while it Is not possible, exoept
in raro cases, to proclaim men professional
under Its pi ovlsions all the evils ot makers
amateurism prevail. The change necessary
Is of a constitutional nature, and such action
is dependent upon the favor of the National
Assembly at a constitutional convention
called for the purpose, and the powers of
the racing board begin and end with the
offering of suitable amendments, which will
be taken care of by the present noatd.
These amendments will be the result of
carefnl study, derived from the experience
of the past season, which has been the most
energetic in the history of the League. From
what can be learned, the changes that will
bo advised by the racing board will not in
clude a recommendation for cash prizes.
They are steadfastly opposed to such a so
lution of the question, and believe that the
method will simply precipitate the down
fall of the organization, w inch has been built
up to its present prominent position by 13
years or progressive management.

under tbe lav against soliciting political
contributions, the case of .Samuel Thomas,
Treasurer of the Republican State Commit
tee of Kew York. Three separate offenses
are charged, consisting of sending letters of
solicitation to Government clerks in this
city. The documents in each case are for
warded with tbe report.
The letters call for no specified sum, but
request the contribution of such an amount
as the recipient may choose to give toward
the necessary and legitimate expenses of
Mr. Boosevelt, to-day, inco mmenting on
the commission's action in the Thomas case,
This is the first time the Civil Service
Commission has ever actively interfered, to
prevent tho collection or political assess
ments during a Presldental campaign. The
commission has been obliged to suggest the
indictment of a number of chairmen and of
ficers of Kepnbllcan State and county coin
mltteec, but I am delUhted to say that noth
ing in anv war reflecting on the Benublican
National Committee has yet been laid before
us. So far, it seems beyond a doubt true,
that tbe Kepnbllcan National Committee
has been carefully respecting the law. This
is a pleasing contrast to what was done by
the Democratic National Committee, four
years ago, when they not only assessed the
postal clerkB and tetter carriers in tho local
offices, but when actually tbe Chairman, Mr.
Barnum, came down to Washington and
took up bis quarters here with the avowed
purpose of seeing personally to the assess
ment of tho thousands of government em
ployes In the departments.
Attorney General Miller, when ques
tioned on the subject this afternoon, said
he had just received the papers in the case,
and had not yet had time to examine them.
He added that he would investigate this par
ticular case himself, but certainly would
not act until Mr. Thomas bad been given
full opportunity to answer the charges
againBt him. There is nothing unusual in
this course, as it is the practice in all cases
of this kind.
A telegram from New York says: The
report irom Washington alleging that the
Civil Service Commission hnd recommended
the criminal prosecution of General Thomas
was treated lightly at Republican State
headquarters this afternoon. Chairman
Hackett was seen on the subject Ue
smiled when told of the report, and said:
I hardly credit tho report. However, I
can Bay that there is positively nothing In
the charges upon which it is 8'ated that
they have asked the Attorney General to
Crosecnte General Thomas. The letters sent
y this committee to Republicans asking
lor contributions to legitimate campaign
expenses are exactly such letters as Tam
many and tho Democrats at large are send
ing out. There is no demand made for
money, and the recipients of tho letters are
not addressed as office-holders. If office
holders under the Government receive such
letters they get them at their homes, Just as
other Republicans do. There Is nothing in
It, you may be certain.
FEMENTED 0B TJNFEBHFHTED,
One-Third of -American Pastors Still Stick
to the Old Style Wine,
Denver, Oct. 31 At to-day's session of
the 'W. C. T. U., the subject under discus
sion was a change in the constitution, giv
ing only one delegate for every 1,000 mem
bers of each State organization of the Loyal
Temperance Legion. Notice of the pro
posed change in the constitution was made
increasing the membership ot the Execu
tive Committee by SO. The Department of
Physical Culture was represented lr Mrs.
Francis W. Seiter, of Mansfield, O.
At the afternoon session Dr. Hopkins,
President of "Westminster University, of
Denver, was introduced and withdrew in
favor of his wife, one of the crusade women.
A call for the original crusaders resulted in
the rising of C7 nomen. A brief but spir
ited discussion as to the obligation of the
W. C. T. 17. to the railroads resulted in the
voting of a circular of thanks, to be sent all
railroad employes in tbe United States.
Mrs. It. A. Esmond, for 13 years superin
tendent of the unfermented wine depart
ment, reported that one-third of our pastors
men of iron will still insist upon using fer
mented wine. The Methodist Church, in
its discipline, discountenanced tbe use of
fermented wine; but our Bishop ot the Epis
copal Church was reported as opposed to
the use of unfermented wine. Becipes ior
the making of unfermented wine have been
sent out to all churches.

in port was handsomely decorated and the

flag in sight.
This morning Commander Brownson, of
the Dolphin, and Lieutenant Schroeder, of

Thousands of visitors are expected in
Charleston this week. To-night there is a
beautiful display of fireworks. In defer

the time ot the American revolution, when
Sir Peter Parker, of the British forces, put
to sea under fire from guns of Fort Sulli
