•*• Mike Twin Sullivan of Boston
and Jimmy Gardner of , Lowell will
hook up In a 25-round battle for Ibe
welterweight near-championship of the
world, and the pia,-o will be opened.
Th.' local fight bugu will gladly wel

ance will bo watched with much in
The first bout in the new arena will
start promptly at 8 o'clock with
Leonard Lauder and Kid Poll, the hard
little dusky fighter, in a 15 -round pre
liminary. Both these lads aro game
boys and hard hitters, so their tight
should prove a good appetizer for the
The Gardner-Sullivan match may
turn out to be a real tight. Both boys
say they are going short Into the ring
with the expectation of putting the
other out in the shortest possible time,
and perhaps It will be a CMS of fight
from start to finish. Mike Twin has
promised to put up the fight of his life,
and with Jeff at his side to make him
stick Mike will undoubtedly put up
a good, slashing battle.
If the Twin falls to make good with
the fans in this fight he will be? down
and out for keeps as far as getting an
other chance around these dlgglns Is
concerned, iitilllvan, however, realizes
this as much as any one, and he has
come out in a statement that lie will
retire. If he loses in his fight with
Jimmy Gardner knocked off work
yesterday afternoon at his Arcadia
training quarters and he will take it
easy until tho time to go Into the ring.
Jimmy Is In perfect physical condition
and says that he never felt better In
"If Ibis fight last over ton rounds
then I'll he very much mistaken," said
Gardner when seen at his training
quarters yesterday. "I'm going Into
Hie ring with the Intention of winning
by the knockout route', and you can
take it from me that I'll be going some
from the first clang of the gong 'till
the finish. If Sullivan doeß happen to
win then I'll be the most surprised kid
that ever stepped out of a prize ring.
I've got -the punch and you'll see ma
deliver the goods."
Twin Is Confident
Mike Twin gave his last performance
before the fight at his training camp
yesterday afternoon. Mike and the big
sailor, Sclilossberg, roughed It for sev
eral rounds. After he had' laid aside
his training togs Mike said: "You can
say for me that I'm going to win and
I also expect to win In a walk. I am
feeling tiptop and expect to put up the
battle of my life. I am going to show
the fight fans around here that I can
fight, and you can bet your last dollar
that they will have a good word to say
for the Twin after my tight with Gard
ner. Moreover, I expect win by a
knockout, and If I fall to deliver tho
goods before the fifteenth round then
I'll lie mighty surprised, that's all."
Gardner and Sullivan have met In
the ring throe times. Two of these
fights went six rounds to a draw, and
the third bout went twenty rounds be
fore the Frisco club, the Twin getting
the referee's verdict by a small mar
gin. Gardner lias It In for Sullivan be
cause he claims ho was robbed of the
decision In this fight.
Gardner has fought seventy-two men
in his career as a fighter and during
this lime ho has never been knocked
< tit or even knocked off his feet. The
Twin has engaged In thirty-five fistic
contests since 1902 and has handed the
sleep medicine to ten men during that

RAIN STOPS SAILOR BOUT AT
THREE CHAMPIONSHIP BATTLES
ON FOR TODAY
Kid Pluvius Proves Superior to Fleet
Boxers and Chases Them from
Ring Amateur Goes
What was about the fiercest and most
Interesting bout of the fleet champion
ships now pending at the Chutes was
stopped in tin' third round yesterday
by an unwelcome guest. Kill Pluvius.
The Kid butted In on the show just,
before Jeff was ready to call for an
other round to decide the battle be
tween Trulnor of the Vermont and
Tlgho of tho Alabama, who had cut and
slashed each other for three periods.
Thus the question of supremacy in the
middleweight ranks is still pending,
The Tralnor-Tighe session was almost
as good as the Johnson-Flynn butcher
ing match of Tuesday night, ami when
the flag of truce was unfurled because
of *v... falling rain the spectators were
on their feet madly yelling at the gladi
ators, impartial because of tho even-
ness of the fight.
Tlgho has enough cleverness to satisfy
an ordinary man, hut against Trnlnor's
aggressiveness he was forced to call it
' all out to keep the. other boy away. A
fierce exchange right o * the reel found
both men swapping wallops which cer
tainly stung, and as they broke from a
clinch Tralnor let go v a right, cross
which caught Tlghe on the point, send
ing him to the mat.
On the advice of his seconds the
fallen man took the count of nine, and
then went at Trainer just as though he
had never been hurt. The bell found
them whanging away with every kind
of a wallop in the Police Gazette blue
book, and the crowd was on Its feet,
filled with the lust for gore.
It was Trainer's turn to take the
floor In the second period, and he fell
with a thud when a wicked left to the
chin connected. As lie rose to his feet
Tlghe was waiting with a well placed
right to the jaw, and again Tralnor
hugged the canvas. He took his time
about rising, and for the rest of the
period it was give and take between
the fighting demons. ,
Jeffries Calls Halt
Part way through the third round
Jeffries decided that it was too sloppy
for either man to do his best, and called
the. bout off, with honors even. They
will light it out this morning, along
with the Altleri-Schlossberg heavy
weight match, and the Rafferty-Fred
rlck feathehwelght mill, all for naval
championships. ;v . ,
Previous to the sailor fight, and also
before the rain began to fall, four am
ateur bouts were decided, and the vic
tories were so clean cut that no extra
rounds were ordered anywhere along
the line. One knockout was recorded,
and the sport was generally good.
Two little fellows In the 105-pound
division, George Hugo and K. Macchers
roll, opened the show and put up an
even battle for the first two rounds.
In the third period Hugo went to the
high speed lever and on his wlndup
showing the Judges gave hlr. a well
earned verdict. -
Another member of the Hugo family.
John, scored over Charles Boscha when
the 125-pound men were called forth,
and he used up about every known
punch In doing so. Boscha . proved a
bear for punishment and was repeat
edly rapped on the snoot with hard
wallops, but stood up to tile end, al
though nearly out on several occasions.
Ivan Kahn of the Los Angeles Ath
letic club gave W. J. Martin an awful
trimming for two rounds and A half
and then was knocked out. Martin was
a sight from Kahn's jabs to the face,
but stuck to it and finally connected
with Kahn's paper jaw. Then it was
curtains for the club boy. The scale
weight for the pair was 145 pounds.
Not many wallops were exchanged
between H. J. Lelande of the 1,. A. A.
C, and C. R. Campbell, unattached, in
trie closing bout of the amatei section,
but when they did connect the punches
counted for something. Lelande was a
bit more effective than his opponent
and was awarded the decision at the
end of the third round. These lads
wore in the same division as the boys
Who preceded them.

for Wear, but Opportvi> Is Con.
fined to Home with
Jim Flynn, the gamest man who ever
drew on a pair of gloves, was around
town as good as ever yesterday, but
no Battling Johnson, equally as game,
appeared on the scene. The Russian is
confined to his room with about the
swellest looking face any fighter ever
paraded, but at that he manages to
blurt out the fact that he is willing to
go up against the Fireman again.
Manager Games is undecided what to
do with Johnson. Ills best friends have
been advising him against sending the
big fellow into the ring again for at
least a year, and He may do as they
say. It Is thought that with a year's
careful coaching under his thick dome
the Russian may amount to something
besides a punishment asslmtlator, and
it Is possible that he will be turned
over to De Witt Van Court for a thor
"I'll fight Johnson again all right,"
said Flynn, "but first I want a rest.
While iVrhlpped him decisively In both
our meetings, it was none too easy a
job, and lt looks like I had a rest com
ing. It's a nice time of year to bum
around In, and before I make another
match I'll see a little of the country."
Neither fighter made any too much
money out of their grueling battle, for
the house was about as slender as any
thing that can cast a shadow. John
son's end was $400 or thereabouts, and
for the beating he took ha doesn't feel
any too well satisfied. Flynn's portion
of the coin amounted to less than a
thousand bucks, which was also but
slight reward for his magnificent effort.
It Is possible that the next time they
meet Flj'nn and Johnson will go over
an extended route. The Jeffries Ath
letic club would like to get them for the
Decoration day afternoon date, and all
who saw- the Tuesday night affair will
agree that Jeff and Long could look all
over the country and not find a more
attractive card. Twenty-five rounds
ought to be enough to settle all differ
ences between tho Fireman and the
Russian, and there is no doubt that
while it lasted the bout would be fully
as thrilling as either of the two they
have already participated In.
CLAIM COLLEGE GIRLS
STUFFED THE BALLOT
TOO MANY VOTES CAST IN BAR.
It Is Hinted That One Candidate for
President of Undergraduate Asso

with Theater Tickets
NEW YORK, April 22.—Barnard col
lege has just had an election for presi
dent of the undergraduate association
and some of the young woman students
would like to have the whole proceed
ings declared .null and void. Some
thing is not quite as it should be about
the ballots, for there were 350 of them
cast by 325 girls. Of these votes the
tellers report "approximately" Miss
Eleanor Gay received 230 and Miss
Florence Symms Wyeth 120.
The discrepancy Is Mid to have been
due to the fact that some of the elec
tresses promised to vote for both nom
inees. It will not do to be too pro
cise- about such matters, but is it con
sidered fair in politics and all right
for a nominee for president to give
away theater tickets, supposing, of
course, she could not use them herself
becauso she had to go to a dinner
party? Is opening a window for an
other girl or paying her carfare a
crime against the sanctity of the bal
There is something about the elec
tion having been held in violation of
the constitution, as, Indeed, it seems
to have been, but that Is such a little
matter it ought not to count, for no
body undersands what the old con
stitution Is about, anyway.
Tile- argument against the recount is
that even if there was a block of
twenty-five votes too many the rela

SUICIDE KITTIE HAS
FOOLED THE "FINEST"
SAIl) SHE WAS BRIDE OF RICH
New York Police Greatly Wrought Up
Over Girl's Story of Robbery.
Has Record as a
NEW STORK, April 22. Miss Kittle
Joyce, alias Donnelly, Of upper Ten
derloin circles, whose name is a house
hold word in the police stations of the
upper West Bide, although she never
really has done anything serious,
caused a stir in the detective bureau
•yesterday by imagining thai she. was
the wife of a wealthy ranch owner
from Flagstaff, Ariz., and that she
had been robbed of $1700 by a girl she
met in a Broadway restaurant. A
woman who had never seen Kittle be
fore was hustled down to headquarters
and locked up before the detective
] finally remembered who Kittle was.
Miss Joyce arrived at the detective
bureau early in the afternoon sobbing
so bitterly that it was some time be
fore Inspector MeCafferty could get
her story. In an hour he got her
calmed sufficiently to say thai she was
Mrs. John J. Donnelly of Flagstaff,
Ariz., and that she had married Mi.
Donnelly, a rich ranchman, only a
month ago. She said that she and beT
husband had come hero to buy furni
ture for their new house In Flagstaff
and were staying at the Herald Square
Yesterday noon, so Kiitio said, she
i ii.i Mr. Donnelly of Flagstaff, were
having lunch In a Broadway restaurant
when at a table near by they noticed a
poorly dressed young girl dining on
nothing but a cup of tea. Kittle told
Mr. Donnelly, she said, that the girl
looked as if she needed the best the
house afforded, whereupon Mr. Donnelly
told tin poor girl to go as far as she
liked. Then Mr. Donnelly was called
away. Kittle and the girl went out
shopping, and as It was pretty warm
work she and the girl had several
drinks. Suddenly the girl disappeared
and Kittio noticed that her dress was
open in the front at the exact spot
where- she had had $1700 in bills, Mr.
Donnelly's reserve roll.
Feared Her Husband
Kit tie told Inspector McCafferty that
having been Mr. Donnelly's bride for
only a month, and never having lost
$1700 of his money before, she didn't
know how he would take the loss. Site
thought it best to try to get the money
back before she faced her husband.
Inspector McCafferty asked her if she
would recognize the girl if she saw her
again. Sure, said Kittle, so they took
her to the Rogues' gallery. If Kittle
saw her own picture. No. 39, she didn't
say anything about it. At last she
spotted one which she identified as that
of the girl who had repaid her gen
erosity by touching her for her roll.
Detectives Carbonnel, Carette and To
ner were assigned to go out with Mrs.
Donnelly of Flagstaff and get the girl.
They learned her address, but on the
way uptown they forget whether the
number was 247 West Thirty-eighth
street or No. 245. Carbonnel finally de
cided to try No. 247 and the other de
tectives took Kittle Into No. 245.
The person who opened the door *t
No. 245 was a pale, thin little woman,
whose name proved to be Prue E. Fal
ky Before any one else could get in a
word, Kittle cried, "That's her," and
tried to get her hands on her. The de
tectives held her back. The frail little
woman, who was nearly fainting from
fright, retreated into the room and Kit
tie dashed in and seized a scarf lying
on a table.
"Here's the very scarf she wore this
afternoon," said Kitty. "Give me back
$700 of the money and I'll call it
The detectives told the woman to put
on her things as soon as possible, as
they would take her to headquarters.
When they got outside they found De
tective Carbonnel with the woman
whose picture Kitty had picked out.
Kittle then said she had been mistaken
about the picture after all.
When the detectives got to headquar
ters they had Kittle tell her story
again. This time she said she was
staying at the Hotel Empire. They
got suspicious then, and when Kittle
again offered to settle for $700 they
asked her pointed questions.
She said: "If you don't think I am
all right just ask Inspector Russell."
The Inspector was in the building and
he was brought before the supposed
Mrs. Donnelly. "Hello, Kittle," said
the inspector. She told him he must
be mistaking her for her sister, but the
inspector led the way to tho rogues'
gallery and pointed out Klttie's pic
ture. She was still unconvinced that
she wasn't Mrs. Donnelly of Flagstaff,
so she was locked up for disorderly
conduct, Intoxication and using inde
cent language, which charge was made
because of her tirade against the ac
cused woman in a subway train on
the way to headquarters.
In the night court Prue E. Falky
promptly was let go. Kittle had
thought up a now story in the mean
time. Sho told the court that her
mother died two weeks ago In Pitta
ton, Pa., and left her $1700. Grief over
her mother's death and Joy over get
ting the money led her to Imbibe a
little, she said, and when it was stolen
from her she hated to go to the police
about it. because she didn't want them
to know she had boon drinking.
A few years ago Kittio was wearing
at least $50,000 worth of diamonds, and
then she started to drink. She did
several things that gave her the name
Suicide Kittle. Once she plastered red
ink over her hair and shot off a revol

and the surgeons worked over her for
a long time before they found that she
At another time she sprinkled car
bolic acid on the Boor, lay down beside
it and appeared to be dead. When the
police came In they thought she was so
dead that they didn't bother about call
ing in a surgeon. They sent her to the
morgue and there she revived. When
she is in good trim she takes a fancy to
cab rides. On more than one occasion
she has jumped up on a cab box when
the driver wasn't around and lias gone
for a long ride. Several horses died
from their experiences with Kittio on
She also likes to drop Into a police
station and announce that she is the
wife of the captain In the district just
above, whereupon she usually receives
the courtesies of the place.

Proposal and Weds the
Back of lie marriage of Miss Adah
Pratt of 1437 Irving street, Washington,
to B. Frank Hoover of Philadelphia
last Saturday, lies a story of unusual
romance and Interest.
Miss Pratt lived until she was 29
years old without forming the acquain
tance of a. man. She was born and
raised In a community of women taught
in believe thai, marriage was a sin. She
was bound by teaching ami belief al
ways lei remain single. Then she mar
ried th" first man to whom she ever
had been introduced. More,' than that,
she did more than half the courting
The' story is not unlike' that of the
plot of Tennyson's "Princess." And as
In tlie poem, the principal character
fulled in her vows.
Nearly thirty yean ago in Texas,
where Mrs. Hoover's mother lived at
the time, a Mrs. Martha McWhlrtcr, of
Waco announced that she had had a
visitation from th" Almighty, and hail
been told that it was sinful to live with
man. Accordingly she left her husband
and gathering about her a small party
of women who were brought to her be
lief, she went to the little town of Bel
teen, and there established headquarters
of the new creed.
It was called "The Women's Com
monwealth," its members were all
well to do and self supporting. Some
were spinsters, some were married,
some had children. Mrs. Pratt was one
of the converts to the religion, and,
leaving her husband, she joined the
colony, where two months afterward
the present Mrs. Hoover was born.
There were ten children In the col
ony, all girls. Ten years ago the com
monwealth moved to Washington, tak
ing up a farm of 172 acres In Mont
gomery county, Maryland, and a largo
house In the city. The children were,
taught to.beware of men. They never
were permitted to have acquaintance
with any of them. They were Instruct
ed In work, and were sent regularly to
church, although never permitted to
affiliate themselves with any particu
Of course they saw men. Mrs. Hoo
ver says she often had noticed them.
But she never paid attention to any of
them until she met Mr. Hoover. Yes
terday she told her own story.
"Five of the girls grew up," she
said, "and then slipped away to bo
married. Of course, they were re
garded as sinners. I thought them bad,
as did all those In the 'commonwealth.*
But about a year ago I went down
town with a girl friend, and she Intro
duced me to Mr. Hoover.
"Somehow or other I could not get
him out of my mind. I found myself
wishing I might see him all the time.
I knew It wasn't right; at least, I
thought it wasn't. But I couldn't get
him out of my mind. Later I met htm
downtown again, and several times
after that. Then he told me he was
going to leave the city, and asked me
to write. I told him I would."
From her story of the romance, it
seems that Mr. Hoover originally came
from Mechanlcsburg. His father is
living there at the present time. Mr.
Hoover Is a hotel clerk, and after
leaving Washington he went to Chi
cago. Later he decided to come to
Philadelphia, and wrote his intention
to Miss Pratt in Washington.
"I was crazy to see him," she ad
mitted yesterday, "and decided to risk
the fear of my mother's displeasure
and give him a surprise party. So I
slipped quietly out of the house In
Washington and came here. When I
found Mr. Hoover he was greatly sur

marry me?' he asked.
" T don't know that I thought much
about that,* I replied. T just felt I
had to see you again.' ,
'Well, will you marry me?' he
asked. It took me by surprise, although
I was not wholly unprepared for it.'
" 'I'm willing,' I said finally.
" 'Right away?' he asked. This was
so sudden It took my breath away.
"Can't you wait until tomorrow
night?" I asked him, and ho said he
The ceremony was performed by the
Rev. Dr. J. B. G. Pldge, pastor of the
Fourth Baptist church, at the parson

Mrs. Hoover is tall, of a striking
figure and stylishly dressed. She has a
wealth of chestnut hair, brown eyes
and an expansive smile. She was in
