Hurtling said McOovcrn wns In u

"It wim my way of winning the
fight," said Young Corhett. after tho
fight. "I fought cautiously In cverv
round and felt McGovorn weakening
toward tho end of tho content. I
ciuiKht him with a loft on the Jaw and
went him back ngalnst tho ropeH. Ho
dropped hln hands to IiIh Hide, which

Tho tlnal blow wiih n right uppercut to

"It was tho rreatest. robbery In the

BIk Croud on Hand Knrlr.
By S:30 o'clock, when the contestants
In the first preliminary entered the

with a cheering, Impatient crowd.
Outside u drizzling rain was falling,
but this did not dampen the enthus
iasm of the crowd, which Htrctched for
half a block on either side of the door
and even blocked tho streets In front.
It was estimated at that time that
nearly eleven thousand people wero In
Hlde the hall, tho biggest crowd that
ever saw a light In San Francisco.
IteportB from McQovern'H and Corbett's
heudquartera wuro equally bright. Both
men had rested quietly after weighing
In during tho afternoon and expressed
attsolute confidence In the outcome.
The flmt preliminary was a ton
round go between "Dixie Kid." a
colored welterweight from Los Angeles
and Kddle Cain of Brooklyn, McOov
ern'B sparring partner. "Dixie Kid"
won In tho second round with a right
to the Jaw. Cain was not out, hut
when he went down he turned his
ankle badly and wa unable to got up.'
The slralu wan a bad one and It was
necessary to carry Cain from tho ring.
Tho second preliminary, a hIx rounTt
go between Cal Mcjim nnd Jimmy
Caroll, Jr., both" of Han Francisco,
wua declared a draw.

The most notable Incident connected
with the president's departure arr6
out of the presence at tho station of
Baron Speck von Sternburg, the Oer
man minister. He wns tho only mem
ber of the diplomatic corps who went to
the depot to see the president off, nnd
the president greeted him most cor
dially, telling him that he greally ap
preciated the courtesy. During their
chat the president asked the baron
whether he would bo here In June,
when he returned, and upon teeelvlne:
an afllrmative reply the president laid:
"That Is good: we will have aomo
long rides together "
The baron told the president that his
horses wero In India and would hot be
hero for some time. Instantly the
president turned and gave orders thnt
during his absence his riding horse
and that of Mrs. Roosevelt should bo
placed at tho disposal of Baron and
Baroness von Sternberg. "I should
be very much pleosed," hald heMo the
baron. "If you and tho baroness would
ride them while I am away." ,
As tho train drew out, the president
"Good-bye, Baton, I appreciate your
coming very much."
No member of the president's hnmed
lr e family except his sister, Mrs.
