BIGGEST AFFAIR OF THE KINO

Chicago, April 3. Everything is .in
readiness1 for the world's champion
ship catch as catch can wrestling
I match between George Ilackenschmidt,
champion of Europe, and Frank Gotch,
champion of America, at. Dexter Park
pavilion tonight The foreigner de
clares he. is fit for the battle and
Gotch, excepting a slight cold,' says he
is in good fettle for the fray. Neither
venture a direct opinion as to the out
come of the match, but both talk as
if confident of winning.
Toe Hold to ne Allowed. ':
, Ilackenschmidt and Jack Herman,
Gotchs representative, met yesterday
to talk over the rules. The Russian
objected to Qotch's favorite toe hold
and also to kneeing the legs and
ankles. He said it was to be a fair
wrestling match and not a bone break
ing affair. Herman, however, held out
rrwpjj's style of wrestling and in
formevir Hackenechmidt that the ham
merlock one of Hack's favorite
holds, was as "dangerous as the toe
hold, that both were bone breakers and
that what was fair for one should be
fair for the other. They finally settled
the argument by agreeing to wrestle.
Chicago style, rolling and flying falls
not to count, the referee to decide all
technical points and to declare the fall
with a whistle. '
The match is the greatest in the his
tory of American wrestling and it is
expected will be attended by a mam
moth crowd. The gate receipts also
should be of the record breaking "or
der, as the choice box seats have been
sold at $30 and the second class seats
from $15 to $20. ,
I'urne of 910,000 for Men.
The men will grapple for a purse of
$10,000 and it has been reported as
high as $13,000 will be given them. It
will cost Promoter W. W. Wittig $28.

tonight. In this amount is included
the expenses of "Wittig a three trips to
England to secure Ilackenschmidt and
all ' the incidental moneys connected
with the affair. This Is more money
than any promoter of a sporting event
dug into his pockets for, and demon
strates the confidence Wittig had in
its success.' ' " " . ' " - . '
What the gate receipts will amount
to. is impossible to state, but Judging
from the advance sale the management
expects a $40,000 house. Wittig is a
resident of Milwaukee, but has inter
ests in Chicago, being connected with
several local theaters. .

was relieved, and in three days the
