RULES FOR Ml
Referee Jack Welch Tells Gan
and Herman Terms of New
MEN MUST NOT HOLD 0
Straight Marquis of Queensberry Rulee
Will Govern Must Break
: - -
Tonopah. Xev., Dec. 2S. Referee
Jack Welch hit town Wednesday
light. The big Californian who, is to
be theJhTr.(V3iian in the Cans-Herman
rjontest eflth7e""early as the articles of
agreement are. that the referee must
be here at least 10 days bfore the fight.
The first thing that Welch did was
to locate Cans and Herman and talk
matters over. For fully an hour the
two fighters and the referee discussed
matters pertaining to the fight. Welch
stated his interpretation of .the rules
very clearly and when the conference
was at an end all parties had a clear
conception of the rules which will gov
ern the contest.
After the talk Welch gave out the
"The boys are to fight under the
straight Marquis of Queensberry rules.
This will allow of fighting in the
clinches as long as one or both men
have an arm free. I particularly cau
tioned the boys that I would not stand
for any half mile waltzing and that
they must break on my order.
"During my career as a referee, I
have always held that fighting in the
clinchings should always be allowed
as long as the men can get an arm
free to punch with. On the other hand,
I hate to see two fighters hanging on
to each other with arms bound and
not do any punching. I was particular
to caution the boys that I will not per
mit any of this and that my word to
break must be imperative.
"I told them that in case they do not
break on my order I shall use any ne
cessary and dennite means to oreali
them. I do not want to go between the
men at any time and will not do so un
less! find it absolutely necessary."
"' IMirtell tlrtn a Match.
Arrangements have been made for
b"oxing match in one of the three
cities at an early date between Jack
Purtell of Kansas City and Jack Gary
of Ottumwa. It will be a select party
and it is given out that there will be
rfb use for the general run of sports
rying to break in. Purtell has been
camping in .Moiine since tne zseary-
Farmer hour In Davenport, and looking
for a match. Gary bases his claim for
fame on a recent decision over Milt
Kinney of,Des Moines.
Manager Fred Donovan of the
Blooniington team, has a deal on with
another Three-Eye team to trade Wil
son, Vogel and Gray for a couple of
new players, the names of whom arc
not given out. Jack Herbert has sign
ed for 1907.
President Kinsella of the Springfield
team, has "not selected his captain, but
understood to have made an offer
for Bill Conners, late of Bloomington.

President Holland has suggested that
tne annual business meeting of the
Three-Eye league be held in Chicago
Jan. 8, the same time as the meeting
of the national board in New York
city. Holland's reasons for selecting
the date are based on the belief that
several problems will arise for solir-
tion at the Three-Eye league meeting,
which may require immediate advise
ment with the national commission.
One thing which will cause complica
tions is the $50 fine hanging over ev
ery member" of the Distiller team for
participation In games after the season
had closed with Jimmy Callahan's Lo
gan Squares. President Bartson has
flatly stated that if the board and the
league compel the payment of this
money, the Distillers will take part in
no game in this city, or in any other
on the circuit, against a team contain
ing a single player who participated
on either side after the season closed
last fall. This includes forty or fifty
men now under contract in this league

SOYS IN TROUBLE
Doxee and Henry Bell, of
Cable, Accused cf
IN ALED0 JAIL UNDER BOND
Circumstances Indicate They Broke
Into Stores of John Chilin and
Will Doxee and Henry Bell, two Ca
ble youths, are lying in jail at Aledo
waiting for someone to furnish $500
bail upon which each is held on the
charge of burglary. The authorities
have worked up a strong case against
them, though neither has confessed.
Wednesday night the shoe store of
John Chilin and the restaurant of Wil
liam Caddy were entered, the former
by breaking a glass door and the latter
by forcing open a rear door. From the
shoe store several pairs of shoes were
taken, while $25 worth of tobacco, ci
gars, and other articles was removed
from the restaurant.
Found the Goo1m.
Suspicion from the beginning was
fastened upon the two boys and jester
day a search at the home of John Nel
son, southwest of town, discovered the
loot, which had been hidden there. As
the Bell lad was employed by Mr. Nel
son, the chain of circumstantial evi
dence was considered sufficiently
strong to warrant arrests.
The two suspects were arraigned be
fore Justice Shroyer yesterday after
noon, plead not guilty and were sent to
jail under bond.
MAKING EFFORT TO
SECURE HIS PAROLE
Friends of John Allison Seek to Bring
About His Release from Peni
tentiary at Jackson, Mich.
It is understood that an effort is be
ing made by people at Detroit to se
cure a parole for John Allison, the es
caped convict from the Michigan peni
tentiary, who was arrested here last
week and returned to the penitentiary
at Jackson, Mich. Moiine people who
knew Allison, or Ed Wilson, as he was
known here, will do all possible to se
cure Allison's release. . Requests have
been received for statements from
those who knew Allison during the IS
months or more that he was employed
in Moiine, and these will be presented
to the prison authorities. Allison's rec
ord in Moiine was a creditable one, and
should have considerable weight in the
