Br Wrestling Bout.
The Gotch-HSckenschmidt -wrestling
match .chednled for Chicago Labor

biggest attractions of he kflnd jevei

mendous endurance and strength of the
two men. Hackensphmidt was in poor
condition at that time and the wonder
is that he was able to continue as long
as he did:
Picks Gotcfe to Tln.
"I have been requested by several
parties of the west to give my views
Too-nrrHno- t"hf nomine match, having
hAon connected with W. W. Witte In i
handling the first one. From what I
know of the two men, my choice would
fall on Frank Gotch to win, as I con
sider liim more scientific with wonder
"It will not be surprising to me If
the match would result in a draw, for
with the two men In the best of condi
tion, and not overanxious to take too
many chances they are liable to stretch
the contest into hours. As the match
will be held in theiopen, and darkness
corms on quite early nowadays, it is
easy to be seen how the men might
wrestle on to a draw, even if one
should gain a fall, for it is to be de
cided best two in three. It will be a
much more spectacular match to watch
than the previous one for the reason
that Gotch will not be on the defensive
and .will be willing to take more
chances than he did before.
"R. B. Benjamin of London, who has
the famous Indian wrestlers in charge,
and. who Is determined to force the
winner of this match into a contest
with one of his men, says that he will
be in Chicago with his men and will
be ready to challenge the winner.
He says he will be" there ready to post
-$2,500 to go as a side bet."
That.hustling young manager of
boxers, known as Kid C. W. Galvin of
B-och ester, K. T., is certainly making
them take notice in London and Paris.
The Kid has been over there for some
time with the Dixie Kid, the colored
welter weight and other boxers. In
a letter at hand he says: "Have Jeft

Hackenschmidt has worked even
harder than Gotch. Vhen he boarded

Roller, the Seattle physician-wrestler,
who is believed to know more about
rsrttnh'a tvifi than anv other man,
While his manager. Jack Gurley, stay- I

Russian Is Confldeat.
I waylaid the big Russian in lii
north shore establishment tonight just
as he was contemplating an early visit
with the "sand man," and asked him
whether he was confident.
"Confident? Qf course I am," and
the Russian giant smiled blandly, pat
ting his enormous chest. "No. no, do
not ask me to set a- figure on the time
it will take me to beat Gotch. I am not
a xapld worker, but I should say that
I will win two falls in less time than
was consumed in our first match. No,
I would not say that I am going to win
in straight falls. He might get one; I
cannot tell. But I will be the ultimate
winner, you may be sure of that.
"I never would have been Insistent
for a return meetings but for that con
fidence. I would have permitted the
public to keep on guessing.
l,And another thing you may be cer
tain of. Gotch will never trip me into
a quick fall the way he did Zbysco. I'm
ready for all that sort of work.
"Yes, I will admit that perhaps he
is the fastest man, but I an far the
stronger and have superior pndurance.
I think that tells the sory of how I
feel about this match.
"It will be my chief aim to redeem
myself in the eyes of the American
people for all that has gone before "
The Russian confidence, of the sim
ple, plain foreign manner that is all
his own, Is contrasted in a, unique yay
by that of Gotch Although the cham
pion does not say it will b a "cinch,"
he leaves the impression that that i3

- Remembering the terrible strain of
his long match with Hrfck in Chicago
three years ago and jthat strength,
confidence, the snap, ebbs as the match
draws on, Gotch -declared that he was
planning on a quick ,finish to the
match. Instead of tugging with his op
panent and trying to find out just what
his strength and presept knowledge of
ths game is, Frank is going right In
from the jump to bring home a victory.
He does not say he wll try the same
rick that he worked ou' Zbysco in gain
ing the first fall, but he says he has
a better and more effective one and
pne into which Hack' will surely fall.
If confidence and the perfection of
condition will carry any one through
to victory Gotch has as good as retain

the world. A defeat at the hands of
Hackenschmidt would be the great

down here and that is that the cham

Gotch Must Work Fast.
There have been many who believed
that Gotch's chances of winning would

One thing that struck me particu
larism was the difference in the at
mosphere around the quarter of the
rirnls At Hack's stamping grounds.
f there was an air of secretiveness. No
one was there excepting those wno
were actually needed to care for the
Russian. But Gotch was surrounded hy
a circle of friends, wrestlers and sport
ing characters, all chatting pleasur
ably of the coming match. Gotch did
not seem a bit worried, and the con
fidence pervaded his entire caravan
sary of trainers and others who wor
shiped at his shrine.
Farmer Burns, who supervised the
camp of Jeffries before the Johnson
fight was one of the most sanguine.
He has had personal charge,, of the
champion's work during the last month
and declared he was In a position to
know what he was talking about.
"Gotch's condition is great," he said,
'After working on the 'mat with him,
I have learned that he is in better

now by far the greatest Gotch I have
Big, awkward Zbysco, who was. de

other of those on hand. He expressed
the opinion that Hack didn't have a

manager, Jack Herman.

During the day and evening I "have
run Into bevies of prominent sporting
characters who have come hundreds of
miles especially to see the match. I
encountered them on street corners,
in hotel corridors and in short, every
other kind of place where you would
ho nkpiv to find a snorting character.-
LEugene Corri, the famous London ref
eree and promoter, and manager -oem-son
of the National .Sporting club of
London were "fanning" genially with
Billy Muldoon, the celebrated physical
culture expert and Harry Pollock, the
New York sport authority, when I came
upon them. The two Englishmen were
drawn clear across the ocean and half
of this continent by the magnet of
attraction. H. H. Frasae, the theatrical
magnet "who once proposed a, world
tour for Jeffries and his camp In the
event of a. victory over Johnson, was
another. Paul Armstrong, the play
wright and pioneer sport writer, was
also well to the fore with hts jovial
good nature and keen humor. Other
dignitaries on hand represent the
"higher walks" judges, poets, con
gressmen, et al.
They are all talking "about the eveat
of the century."
