Sllngluff And Guy Forbing
Which Was Most Exciting To
A Few Spectators
But Not Much Of A Surprise
To The General Public
A most exciting fistic encounter,
not much of a surprise to the general
public, but at the same time most
thrilling to a. number of spectators
for a few moments, occurred on East
Gambler street, but a short distance
off Main between eight and nine
o'clock Friday evening between
Harry G. Sllngluff and Guy J. Forb
ing. According to tho version of Forb
ing, It appears that Sllngluff was go

going in tho opposite direction. Tho
two men passed and after they had
sepai ated a few feet, Sllngluff mado
some romark, according to Forbing,
which Forbing uld not hear distinct
ly. The latter turned around and ad
vanced towards Sllngluff and In
quired what he had remarked. Sllng
luff is said to have again repeated
what he had said, which evidently
did not please Forbing; for in an In
stant tho struggle commenced. Not a
word was spoken, but the twp men
clinched for a .iecond and then Forb
ing shot a blow at Slingluff's face
which sent him to the sidewalk.
Forbing followed this punch up with
two others of equal severity which
caused Sallngluff to fall to the side
walk. After administering these blows,
all well-directed towards Slingluff's
face and all of which took effect.
Forbing resumed his' walk towards
Main rtreet and Sllngluff disappear
ed in the darkness.
It Is said that Forbing came out
of the encounter without a scratch,
while Slingluff's face was quite badly
bruised and cut up.

Declare That If Roosevelt Duplicates

8erlout Crimp Into President Taft'i
Political Aspirations May Result
In Bringing Forth New Candidate
In Person of Justice Hughes of
Washington, April 13. Followers
of the political game here are almost
unanimous In their opinion that to
day's primaries In tho state of Penn
sylvania will be tho crisis In tho
Taft-Hoosevelt campaign for the
Republican presidential nomina
tion. The managers of both wings
of tho party are keenly alive to the
great stakes at Issue In tho contest
and both sides are showing more
nervousness than thoy havo at any
other time In tho light
Republicans generally acknowledge
that If Roosevelt sweeps Pennsylva
nia tho way ho did Illinois, it will be
a blow from which tha Taft boom
will have great difficulty In overcom
ing. President Taft's own political
managers realize that tho eyes of
tho Republicans in the south are cen
tered on this Pennsylvania contest.
Southern delegates to, the Republican
conventions in ycara past havo been
notorious for jumping, to the winning
bandwagon, and if Roosevelt should
add Pennsylvania to tho prestige
that ho gained through the Illinois
victory, many Republicans fear that
tho president would find some of his
southern strength 3hpplng away.
Defeat for the president in Penn
sylvania, too, would give Impetus to
the talk now heard In many quarters
of the possibility of bringing forward
a compromise candidate. In the
opinion of many political observers
the turning of Pennsylvania against
Taft would make the selection of the
third candidate, avman like Justice
Hughes absolutely" necessary; inas
much os It would demonstrate that
President Taft could nothold tho
Republican strongholds of tha coun

Circus days are rainy dayd.
But the circus brings its crowd rain

not many years ago.

Indoor circus at the Y. M. C. A. Ev

for it the night had been more pleas

have been Insufferable. All seats were
filled and standing room at a premium.
Fully COO people viewed the perform
ance. Not enough can be said In praise of
the performance. It Is a very difficult
task to tako 100 green men and work
out a smooth-running program. Those
having the acts in charge should be
congratulated over the results at
tained. The mass acts as the flag and
wand drills, the rings and tbe paralell
bars surprised all. The pyramids were
tho height of perfection In the preci
sion with which they moved. Between
20 and 30 men trotted out to one rud
