WHO WILL WREST
' BELT FROM NEGRO
Fight Followers at Sea as to Whom
They Can Turn.
Xew York, July 6.-For the first
time in the prize ring, a negro is the
undisputed - heavyweight champion of
the world. And what white man Is
there in sight today who can wrest
that tit'e from John Arthur Johnson?
That is the question which the fight
followers of New York, as well as of
the whole country are asking today
The only answer is an echo "Who?"
The only hope the fans can see to
day lies in Al Kaufman, but it is ad
mitted generally that this hope has
not a very solid foundation. Kauf
man, while young, big and strong, ha
hardly given evidence as yet of pos
sessing the qualities of a first-class
fighter. Aside from him the pugilistic
horizon can be scanned In vain.
Despite this situation, however,
followers of the game are cheering
each other by recalling some not too
ancient ring history. It is pointed out
tha after Sullivan had defeated KH
rain. It was predicted that no man
could be found to defeat the mighty
John L., but along came Jim Corbett.
the young ex-bank clerk, who sent
Sullivan down to bitter defeat. Ad
mirers of Corbett. calling attention to
his admittedly great cleverness and
quickness, were equally 3ure that
there was no man in sight to wrest the
title from him. And yet Bob Fitzsim
mons. at that time fighting as a mid
dleweight, came out of his class and
took the crown from Gentleman Jim.
And so. they reason, somewhere there
may be even now a sturdy youth who
is destined to bring the ring laurels
back to the Caucasian race.
CEDAR CREEK PICNIC.
Quite a number of our people went
to the picnic at Cedar Creek bridge
today, including all the candidates.

apprised of the doings of the day.
The candidates spent yesterday at a
barbecue at Milllcan and today at Ce
dar, forty miles away, which, to say
the least, to giving them a run for
their money. Tt to so strenuous some
of them declare they wished the elec
tion was today instead of the 23d.
