SAVED BY POLICE
Rudolph Unholz is Severely Punished
by Johnny Thompson and
Fight is Stopped. ; "
NEVER HAD- A CHANCE
Boer Is Knocked Down Twice and
Finally Sent Through Ropes in ,
' Bout at San Francisco.
Shn Francisco, Cal., Oct. 30. Police
interference stopped the Unholz-
Thompson fight here in the 11th round
to save the Boer further punishment
and probably fatal injury. Knocked
down twice by Thompson and then
sent through the ropes and out of the
ring, Unholz received one of the worst
beatings one fighter can administer to
another. Rudy had no chance against
his bull-rushing opponent and the ac
tion of the police saved him much un
It was quite possible that he was
thoroughly satisfied to have a halt
called when it was, and for that mat
ter a large percentage of the sports
considered that Unholz wa more the
victim of weak heart than of Thomp
Unholz met with his first mishap in
the fourth round, when he was sent
to the mat with a left swing while
backing into a corner. He was down
ain in the eighth round, by which
time it was noticed that he was not
using his right hand.
After the Tenth.
As he left his corner after the tenth
round he signaled to an acquaintance
at the ringside that his right hand
When he started on the 11th round
his left hand might have been injured
also for all the use he made of it. He
shouldered his way along the ropes,
whisking his head out of the way of
Thompson's punches, at times barri
cading his jaw with crossed forearms.
He made no attempt whatever to fight I
back and the spectators began to hoot
and dub him a quitter.
Thompson all this time was lashing
with both gloves and making connec
tion occasionally. It may have been
that the fast work and the continual
roughing weckened the Boer complete
ly, but, in any case, he began toj
spreadeagle on the floor. The last
punch that reached him sent him out
on the newspaper benches and while
he was being pushed back into the

'The Man From Home." In Daniel
Voorhees Pike, a young Indiana law
yer, who is the leading personage in
the now famous play, "The Man From
Home," the shrewd Yankee who dec
orated the stage in the- days of our
fathers and our fathers' fathers, is re
turned to life. He is Asa Trenchard.
and Solon Shingle advanced a peg or
two in manners and clothes to suit the
added years and the newer dignity
our country boasts. He does not chew
tobacco and he has quit for the time
being whittling pine' sticks. But he
is the same keen-witted, crafty, taci
turn, nasal toned, big-hearted in-tbe-nick-of-time
hero we have always
known him to be, and edges his way
into your heart with every wiggle of
his peaked shoulders and every twist
of his homely face. In other words,
"The Man From Home" is a Yankee
"I call him an egotist," says one of
the characters in describing him, "be
cause he is so content with being him
self that he has not the slightest de
sire to be like any one else.""
This is a pretty good American, sen
timent. The country Is for vPaniel
Voorhees Pike because " he 1s Amerl-
can and proud of it; because he lives
in Kokomo and is proud of that, and
because he Berved in the legislature
of Indiana and lives to boast of it.

Illinois theater Sunday, matinee and
night, and Monday evening.

pany has presented it, society turning
out in force and Getting its seal of ap
proval upon the wholesome fun pro

ARE IN FINE TRIM
High -School Football Players Hold
Last . Practice . Before the
Match .With Peoria
AT THE DISTILLERY CITY
Opponents Have Strong Team and
Hope to Win Moline Has Under
taken a-Big Contract. "
The last practice before the game
with Peoria was indulged in ty the
high school team this afternoon and
Coach Powell seemed "pretty -well
pleased with t the performance of the
team in practice. The local teem will
need all its strength and strategy
when it meets the Peoria boys, tomor
row in their city, as Peoria has always
had a good team and this year is no
exception to the general rule. The
Rock. Island squad will present its
strongest front in the game, . except
that Frey will be out of it on account
of an injured leg. The rest of the
men are all in &ood trim, however, and
can be depended upon to do the school
justice. ' r
The Moline high school boys will
have their hands full from indications
when they meet the team from the
McKinley high school of Chicago Sat
urday. The Chicago boys are reputed
to be among the best in the -windy
city but as Moline has trimmed Chi
cago teams before without much
trouble no gieat fears are felt for the
Still In Rasslng.
Moline and Rock Island followers of
the game are objecting to the articles
which are appearing in the supers of
Rockford which state that the cham
pionship of the state lies between that I
city and DeKalb. Moline wishes to
have it understood that they will make
a bid for the state honors and that
they are entitled to consideration.
Nothing has been heard from Rock-
ford lately in regard to. the game with
Moline but as the visitors have been
onerea everyinmg iney asicea ior
there seems to be no reason why they
should refuse to play the game, other
than that they have coM feet.
