THE ROCK ISl.AXD ARGUS. THURSDAY. JULY 24, 1913.
SPEEOY BOATS AT
New Records Expected at Pow
er Boat Association Meet
August 26, 27, 28.
EYES OF THE FANS
Commodore J. Stuart Blackton of
the Motor Boat Club of America,
whose Baby Reliance III broke all ex
isting world's records at the annual
regatta of the Mississippi Valley Pow
er Board association at Davenport,
last summer, has notified Chairman
Charles P. Hanley of the racing com
mittee that he will send two new
Reliances to the association's races
which will be held this year at Keo
kuk. Iowa, August 26, 27 and 28.
The motorboat men of Rock Island
declare this means that the Missis
sippi Valley will again set up a world
record for high Fpeed power boats,
for Commodore Blackton has had ex
perts working ever since last year on
a boat that would pass the 60-mile-an-hour
mark. Whether this will be ac
complished, remains to be proven, but
It seems certain that it will, for' last
year's Eaby Reliance slid over the
dew at B3.9 miles, nearly 10 miles
faster than any previous record.
There is prospect of the keenest
rivalry for the championship honors
at Keokuk next month. Commodore
James A. Pugh of Chicago has wired
the committee that he will be at the
starting lino with Disturber III, the
big 40-foot hydroplane which has TOO
horse power stored In 2 cylinders.
This is the largest power plant ever
packed into an American racing hull.
Last season Disturber was too power-
ful for her fittings; something was
tonFtantly wrong. Commodore Pugh
has had two experts at work on her
Mnce last fall. In trials in Chicago
harbor a few days ago she is said to
have made better than 55 miles an
hour. This would seem to Insure an
epoch making race at Keokuk, where
the new 30-mlle lake, created by the
127,000,000 power dam, is said to form
the finest race course in America.

It will surprise a great many people
to learn that John L. Sullivan never
at any time in his career held' the
world's championship. Sullivan wae
champion of America, but never was
champion of any other country than
America. During Sullivan's time, or a
great part of it, Peter Jackson, a col
ored man, was champion of Australia.
As Sullivan drew the color line, he
never had a match with Jackson.
There was a dispute between
Charlie Mitchell and Jem Smith as to
which was the champion of England.
They never fought It out. Richard K.

Gazett, brought out Jake Kilrain

who challenged. Sullivan. Sullivan
didn't c hoose to fight Just when Fox
wanted him to, so Fox advertised that
he had given the American chainpion-t-hip
to Kilrain. However, as Fox
didn't own the championship, the
American public paid very little atten
tion to Kilrain's claim on it. The peo
ple couldn't understand how Fox
could give away something he didn't
own. He did, however, send Kilrain
over to Kngland to fight Jem Smith.
They fought cbout 100 rounds to a

of these two fights settled any cham

States, and in September, 1S92, fought

With three ribs broken . from his
spinal column, and exhausted by pro
fuse hemorrhage from a severed tem
poral artery, August Holtsman, a tim
berman, was brought out of the Alden
Coal company's mine at New Gilchrist
Tuesday morning, after a narrow es
cape from instant death under a fall
The accident occurred about 5:30
o'clock in the morning. Holtsman was
riding down an entry on the rear end
of a coal car, driven by a Slav mule
driver. The mule and the front end
of the car on which the driver sat
had passed before the fall of slate
occurred, and the heavy mass crashed
down on the rear of the car, partially
crushing Holtsman under its weight.
The driver gave the alarm and help
was speedily at hand. The prostrate
man was released from his perilous
predicament with great difficulty and
hurried to a place of safety. A deep
scalp wound, severing the temporal
artery, caused profuee hemorrhage,
and the man had nearly bled to death
before a surgeon arrived. In addition
it was discovered that three of his
ribs had been driven from the backbone.
The man's' condition is serious, ow
ing to extreme weakness from loss of
blood, but it is believed that he has
a chance of recovery.

London July 24. The body of An
thony N. Brady, who died at the Carl
ton hotel Tuesday night, was sent
to Liverpool last evening. It will be
shipped to America pn the Baltic,
which sails today. After lying several
hours in a private mortuary chapel
in Horseferry road in London, the
body was removed to the Catholic
chapel in Westminster, where nuns
watched over it.
After a certificate was granted set
ting forth that Mr. .Brady died of
angina pectoris. Consul General Grif
fiths and the vice consul general dis
patched the necessary formalities. The
body was embalmed and placed in a
lead coffin. Mr. Brady's secretary,
Mr. Dahlstrom, will accompany the
body to America.
The officials of the Carlton kept the
fact of Mr. Brady's death a profound
secret and yesterday afternoon when
the news was communicated to several
of the financier's friends,, they were
overcome with astonishment
The degree of secrecy exercised by
the Carlton management can be imag
ined from the fact that A. B. Wise of
the American Tobacco company called
to see Mr. Brady and was told that
he could not be seen. -
Another friend who had an appoint
ment to meet Mr. Brady called at the
hotel and was Informed that Mr. Brady
was out, which was sadly true, as
the body had left the hotel several
hours before and was on its" way to
Liverpool. The' explanation of the
secrecy of the officials of the Carl
ton Is that they were given strict In
structions by Louis Sherry and other
friends of Mr. Brady not to communi
cate the facta to any one.
There was a big ball at the Carl
ton Tuesday eight and it was feared
that the enjoyment of the night might
be lessened if the dancers knew that
death had come to one of the hotel's

AN ACTION FOR DIVORCE

Grant, whose second marriage took
place in San Diego last week, filed
suit for divorce in the District court
yesterday morning. Grant has resided
in Goldtield for over six months. His
headquarters have been at the Gold
The complaint is a brief document
and etates that, Jesse Grant and Eliza
beth Chapman Grant were married in
San Francisco Sept. 21, 18S0; that
there are two children, a son and a
daughter, both of legal age, and that
there. Is no community property. The
ground on which the divorce is asked
is simple desertion. Mr. Grant's daugh
ter was recently married in San Fran
cisco to an officer of the navy.
In J896 Mr. Grant caused a sensa
tion politically by forsaking the re
publican ranks to become a populist.
In explaining his reasons for the
change he said he felt debarred from
the republican party by reason of his
conviclons both on the silver question
and on the government ownership of
telegraph lines and railroads, and that
he found the platform of the people's
party came nearest to coinciding with
his own view 8. .
