New York, March 27. As derisive
a beating as ring followers ever saw
was handed to Jack Denning by the
PL Paul middleweight, Mike Gibbons,
at tho Fairmont A. C. last night. The
battle lasted the ten round limit, but
at no time did Denning have a chance
He was outboxed, outpunched and
outgeneraled. Gibbons came within an
ace of scoring a knockout in the
fourth round. He landed left and
right hand swings on Denning's law
and Jack tumbled helplessly to the
floor. At the count of eight he strug
gled to his feet, and a moment later
he was saved by the gong. After that
Gibbons did not seem to over-exert
himself. He had Denning partially
groggy on several occasions, but fail
ed to put him away. It would be un
fair to say that Gibbons purposely
let his antagonist stay, for Denning
received a terrific beating before the
battle ended. Denning boxed well and
scored some points with a swift left,
but he could not punch hard enough
to break a pane of glass. He bruised

Chicago, March 27. Packey Mc-
Farland yesterday accepted the offer
of a $16,000 purse made by the Na
tional Sporting club of New York for
a ten round bout with Matt Wells,
English lightweight champion. The
only things that stand in the way of
the match are the questions of weight
'and division of the money. It is
likely that McFarland will hold off
for the big ed of the gate, as he fig
ures he is the drawing card. It is
not likely that either the McMahon'
brothers or Billy Gibson, other New

present big figure, as this sum is as

No more, in years to come, will the
actor or actress have cause to com
plain of tate transitory, the ephemeral
nature of their act. It has been
Thespian's complaint from Elizabeth-
an days to the present that whereas
the labors and genius of the past, the!fun lovln8 youngster, who proceeds to
author, the artist, the musician and
the sculptor have been preserved
through the years, the genius of the
actor dies with him. "What proof?
the actor , has cried? "What proof
have we that Macready was ever
more than a member of stock com
pany in Llewellyn Wales? Absolutely
none!" Of Thackeray, his contempo
rary, we have In his books a substan
tial proof of his genius. Of Bee
thoven, we have his immortal corn -
positions; of the sculptors and the
artist 8 of the early part of the last
century, -we have evidences of their
artistry in cold marble and paintings
which, grow more valuable with ev
ery decade. As for the actor,- how
ever, bis art dies with him and the
only memories of his genius lie bur
ied in the files of crumbling newspa
pers and in the word-of-mouth evi
dence that generally impresses the
younger generation as being the fan
cies of one who is living over the
past with a rose colored pair of spec -
tacles perched on the bridge of his
nose. Now comes word, that Sarah
Bernhardt has played "Camille" be
fore the clnematrograph. "I have
conquered a new world," she writes
exultingly of her latest fad. "I rely
for ray immortality for these film
'records." Bernhardt will be seen In
pictures at the Illinois next Saturday
"Louisiana Lou" abounds In comic
scenes that grow so naturally out of
the story and plot that they are really
situations. Whatever their classifica
tion in the philosophy of the critic and
playwright, the fact remains that the
new musical comedy for the La Salle
opera house, Chicago, Is well supplied
with what is (generally termed com
edy" by actors and fun by the gener
al public Act one contains not fewer
than six of these scenes; while act two
has seven. Notable because they are
original are the dancing lessons in act
one, the (elopement conspiracy In act
two. the presentation .of the Mardi
Gras sceptre in act one, and the now
famous rehearsal of the wedding In
act two. The dancing lesson shows
the loverB" conspiracy in its first im
portant manifestation. Old ' Lidoffski
is desirous "of going to the Mardi-Gras
ball because his foster-daughter, Lou
isa-Lou, will be there, and it will be
her first ball. He cannot dance, and
asks Jack Konkarney to teach him.
Now, although, Jack Hs bethrothed to
Louisa-Lou, he is in love with Delia
Fair, and also, he is aware, of the fact
that Louisa-Lou herself is in love with
Nixon Holme, who has been dubbed
"the leading fleet young man of New
Orleans," in which city the scene of
act one of "Louisiana Lou" is laid. So,
Louisa-Lou, Jennie Wimp, her chaper
one, with Delia and Jack, tell old Lid
offski that Nixon is the man to teach
dancing properly, and send for that
make use of the lesson to Ingratiate
himself . with Lidoffski. while at the
same time stealing a tete-a-tete with
LouiBa-Ixu. Lidoffski protests that
Jack and Louisa-Lou should serve as
one pair of teachers, and Nixon should
illustrate the lesson with Delia; but
Jack proceeds to dance so clumsily
that the old fellow in disgust, asks
that Nixon pair with Louisa-Lou.
When, later, Lidoffski catches Jack
dancing quite as gracefully and well
'" Nixon, himself, he becomes susplc
ions. "Louisiana Lou ' will be shown
at the Illinois April 1 with the special
company organized by Harry Askln to
take this successful musical comedy
on tour, for the reason that the first
company, now playing in the La Salle,
will run the season out there. .
