Miss Patterson heard the news i i

As soon as the jury was locked up

her father a tearful farewell and was
escorted to her cell In the Tombs.
The girl who showed such courage
through the long trial is almost a
nervous wreck. The great strength
she formerly evinced has failed and

Nelson and Corbett Now.
San Francisco. Cah, Dec. 23. It's
Nelson and Corbett ; at least that's the
handwriting on the wall. Although the
men have not actually signed articles.
each has signified his willingness to
do battle, and Alex Greggains, match
maker of the San Francisco Athletic
club, is more than willing to act as
impresario. Nelson plans to make a
visit to his home in Hegewisch, 111., at
New Year's time, but if he is matched
with the Denver fighter he will re
turn for his training, and the battle
will be staged in Woodward's pavilion
the latter part of January.
Within a day or so some definite ac
tion will be taken. Nelson intends to
siend Christmas day in San Francisco
and leave for his home near the shops
the day following the big celebration
Greggains is. accordingly, attempting
to clinch matters before the Dane
leaves, and in everything he does he
has the hearty concurrence of Voting
Corbett. The Denver fighter's plans,
in fact, are to spend at least five weeks
in the country and to practice the sim
ple life. Promoter Coffroth has prom
ised him a match with Britt before
March if he can score u knockout over
Nelson before the 20th round is reach
ed. In an uptown cafe last night Cor
belt outlined his proposition to Britt.
There was a deal of discussion yes
terday afternoon and last evenine
about tne Britt-Nelson battle. Referee
Roche's decision came in for criticism
from some quarters, but taking the
general opinion the decision was sat
factory. The general opinion was
that under the rules Roche could have
given no other verdict. Nelson's game-
ness was commended on every side
and he lost no friends by his fight.

behalf of Terry McGovern, yesterday
issued a formal challenge to Jimmy

fur back he cannot fight again are all
wrong." said Harris. "McGovern, in
my opinion, is now better than ever
He has had a long rest and is enjoying
tine health. McGovern is ready to
meet Britt any time he sees fit. We
are willing to wait six months or until
after Britt is through with White if
