I WITH THE SPORTS.
It begins to look as though Pete
Sullivan was going to kick over the
traces and that the Cyclone Thompson-Sullivan
match, scheduled for
Ogdcn on L bor day, may not ma
" terializc, Sullivan says he cannot
make the weight. He also says he
will not fight if Tom Painter is the
referee. He has also failed to nut
up his forfeit money and has said he
doesn't want to fight, because lie
thinks there will not be a sufficient
house. To a man up a tree it would
look as though Sullivan knew lie
stood no show against the "Cyclone"
and wanted to crawfish.
. After seeing his team unmercifully
4' trounced by the Telluridc team on
Monday, Father Dubci announced
that he was about tired of trying to
support a ball team in Salt Lake, and
it is probable the Tailors will dis
band. Dubci lias tried hard to pro
vide amusement for the baseball fans
but finds that knockers arc too num
erous and the patronage not suffi
cient to justify a continuance of the
game, and he intends to let go be
fore he gets further in the hole.
In the fastest fight ever seen in the
state, in the welter weight class, Rube
Smith of Denver was given the de-
Icision over Frank Mantcll of Faw
tuckctt, R. I., at Ogden on Monday,
the bout going the full limit of twen
ty -rounds. Smith sprained both of
his hands during the bout, which pre
vented a knockout, as he had Mantcll
; all but out in the ninth. The fight
fans of the state certainly got their
moneys worth, and the decision of
Referee Painter is regarded as a just
At last Tommy Burns has let
down the bars on the color line, and
Jit is probable that he will take on
Jack Johnson, the negro who put
II Bob Fitzsimmons down and out. The
latest dope is for a forty-five round
go between the negro and Burns at
Colonia on September 9th, and should
Burns win, it is figircd he will add
$25,000 to his pile, while Johnson will
get enough out of the scrap to buy
pork chops for many a day.
The Tailors won in a comedy of
k f errors from a team from Telluridc
on Sunday, the score being 4 to 5, the
Salt Lakers having eight cr'rors
chalked up against them and the Co
loradons.four. Sponburg was the big
guy, as usual, and but for his head
work and good pitching, Father
John's boys would surely have been
given a trouncing by the brushcrs.
John I.. Sullivan, in an interview
published in a local paper, is quoted
as saying that Jeffries is a dead one;
that he couldn't win another fight
1r if he tried, and that he won't try.
Well, John L. is a dead one, so far
as pugilism is concerned, but he is a
sure enough ivc one with the "Con,"
and knows about as much about Jeff's
condition as a hog doc? about the
Sabbath day. ,
It is announced that Ogdcn is to
have three days of horse racing, com
mencing on Labor day, and that $1625
has been hung up in purses for the
run three best heats out of five, and
will be governed by the rules of the
American Trotting association.
Kid Bell of Denver and Kid Sclby
of Reno, have agreed to go in tlw
ring together at Murray on August
.31, in order to amuse lovers of box
ing contests and incidently to sccurr
enough coin to get out of town on.
Both men arc to weigh 133 pounds
at the ringside, and each declares
that he will knock the other guy's
Many people arc now wondering,
since Walthour failed to win against
Downing with a four-lap handicap in
a ten mile race, just what Downing

Roy Castlelon, the Salt Lake side
wheeler, is making good in the South
ern league, being recognized as the
best pitcher in the organization. At
last report he had won thirteen
games and lost five.
A feature of the outing of the tra
veling men at Lagoon today will be
an alleged baseball game between the
fate and the leans. Ben Haywood
will act as umpire providing he
doesn't get killed in the first inning.
Hardy Downing has been indefi
nitely suspended ffom the saucer
track for striking Pye, the Australian
rider. There had been bad blood be
tween the couple for some time.

There is no ficd offering greater opportunities for dis
crimination in buying, than in buying coal.
You can buy coal that will merely burn, nothing more,
or you can buy coal that burns brightly, quickly, and gives yon
satisfaction in every way.
You'll get coal that gives that satisfaction when you
buy Castle Gate or Clear Creek. . 1
It's good coal to keep for winter.

Some of the Park City sports are ij
