WITIE LAUDS ROOSEVELT.
Praises the President in Strongest
In a private letter received at Berlin,
M. Witte expresses the following opin
ion of President Roosevelt:
"Prom a moral standpoint the presi
dent of the United Stales is a states
man of large caliber. Horn in a time
when politicians are more children of
their country than of their history, he
owes his high position, which he fills
more worthily every day, exclusively
to his personal qualities as revealed in
actions requiting dignity, tact and
dear vision. The world recognizes
"When one speaks with President
Roosevelt he charms through the ele
vation of his thoughts and through
that transparent piii.osophy which
permeates his judgment. He has an
ideal, and strives for higher aims than
a commonplace existence presents. In
UlO stubborn struggles of our day men
like Mr. Roosevelt have no leisure, for
they are soldiers who can not be re
lieved from the danger line."

KNOCKED OUT JIMMY BRITT AT
They Fought 13 of tne Fastest Rounds

San Francisco. —In a fight that will
long stand In a class of its own in the
history of ring contests, Battling Nel
son, the sturdy little Dane from Il
linois, knocked out James Edward
Brill of San Francisco at Colina Sat
The end came in the 18th round and
was a clean cut, tairly won victory.
This is a simple statement of the re
sult; the story of the battle itself fur
nishes a thrilling siory. No element
that goes to give the fight the superla
tive title of "greatest" was missing.
It was the story of many another
ring contest —the success of the strong,
sturdy, enduring lighter against a
clever, cool boxer. This, in brief, is
me description of Nelson's and Britt's
characteristics, respectively. From the
very first moment of the fight until
Referee Graney finished the count of
lv, Nelson forced the fighting. Though
battered by innumerable bruising
blows upon tne face and body and
at times very tired, Nelson never for
one moment gave ground. He came
back after every vicious attack by the
clever Britt, always ready to exchange
For these rushing, forcing, persistent
tactics of Nelson Britt could find no
etiective counter. '1 ne Californian
tried every blow known to him—and
he apparently knows all of them —to
stop his tireless opponent. In every
was he failed. It is true Britt pun
ished Nelson severely, knocking him
down once and staggering him several
limes, but never was he able to beat
him back and change tue aspect of the
All Britt's in the Third.
Only once, in the third round, did it
appear to those close enough to judge
the tide of battle mat liritt might
win. In this round he reached the
most vulnerable spot on Nelson's mus
cle armored body —his stomacu —with
two terrmc right hand blows that car
ried punishing force behind them. Nel
son faltered lor a moment and doubled
over. Quickly turning his attention to
Nelson's face, Br.a sent in a terrific
right cross tnat dropped the Dane to
his knees. There was a great shout
from Britt's friends, but the elation
was shortlived. Nelson got up Hjatfure
the timer could reach the count of two
and fought the only way he knows how
to fight —always coming toward his
man. At this critical for Nelson
the gong sounded for a rest, a most
cheerful note to the Nelson supporters.
The call of time for the succeeuing
round, however, found Lie much bat
tered Battler fresh and ready to re
Nelson was always the first to begin
rounds, though not always the first to
land a blow. Time after time he would
glide along after Britt, much after the
style of Fltzelmmonß, never clever on
his feet, but always seeking to shorten
tne distance between his opponent and
himself. This tireless persistency—a
most discouraging unng to the oppos
ing tighter—and his marvelous disre
gard of physical punishment, won the
tight for Nelson.
After his «iost successful rally in the
third round, the popular little Califor
nia fighter woanened. Many of his
friends seated very ciose to the ring
side saw the change and ventured the
prediction that nelson would win.
Britt had done his beat In the third.
He had used all his strength, all his
cleverness and all his blows; yet, he
failed to achieve a knockout.
He appeared to realize as he took
his corner after the fourth round that
he was unable to hurt his opponent.
Nelson also seemed to reach this de
cision at the same ume and subse
quently took Britt's blows with more
confidence and without flinching.
Except in spots the rounds were all
pretty much alike, Nelson always forc
ing, Britt always giving ground; Britt
trying to keep Nelson at the end of his
snappy left hand and the' Dane using
every means to get inside the circum
ference of the clever Californian's two
good hands. Whenever Nelson broke
down the defense or accepted the
blows aimed at him, he would hammer
away at the body, always coming out
of a clinch with swinging attempts at
Graney Gives Orders.
The agreement of the two men to
break at the command of the referee
and the referee's interpretation of the
rules and their strict enforcement
were much in Nelson's favor. Graney
told them before the fight commenced
that they must break at his command
—that he did not propose to lay his
hands on them during the fight, ne
carried out his intentions, and his
work was probably tue most success

At his training quarters, Nelson
"The fight turned out just as I ex
pected it would. I knew that if I got
a square deal and no favors were
shown that I would win. Referee
Graney was perfectly just in his de
cislons. as my manager was sure he
"It was • blow la the pit of the
stomach, followed by a left book to
the jaw that gave Britt his quietus.
He did not have me distressed at any
stage of the game, even if some of
my friends thought that I was going
once or twice. On the other hand, I
knew early In the fight that I would
conquer Britt and that it was merely
a matter of rounds before I would put
him out. But I must give my adver
sary the credit of having fought very
"Honor to Victor," Says Britt.
"1 battled Nelson at his own particu
lar style of fighting. Of course I used
my cleverness. I was stronger than he
was at the finish and was gradually
wearing him down. My hands were
swollen and had burst the adhesive
bandages, I was a be'ter man than
Nelson when the fight ended. I don't
say It was a lucky punch, but Nelson
was particularly fortunate in landing
that punch at that time. All honor to
the victor. I would nKe to fight him
again. I am not hurt, nor was I hurt
at any time in the battle. I was not
exhausted. My condition was perfect
and I was never better than when I got
that punch in the ISth round. I have
no excuse to make, but desire to give
all credit to Nelson. He is a strong
fellow and aggressive."
