Twelve thousand spectators saw the
star of Jimmy Britt, the Californian
idol, go down to defeat in his battle
with the wonderful black gladiator,
Joe Gans. After Britt's seconds saw
that there was no hope nor help for

him to throw up the sponge by feign
ing a broken arm. However that
may be, Gans won, Britt lost, and we
are proud of the results.
