Mother and Bride.
Up in a box in the center of the
grandstand, sat two women who did
more perhaps to cheer Gotch on to
victory, than all the other persons in
the audience. They were his mother
and his young bride.
Frequently in the thickest of the
fray, Gotch found time to look to
ward the two women and smile. Dur
ing the ten minutes intermission, be
tween falls, he did not go at once to
his dressing room, but stood for a mo
ment in the corner smiling and wav

Hack Heartbroken.
Hackenschmidt was heartbroken ov
er the result. In his dressing room
for a half hour he sat in his wrest
ling garb crying and refusing the pro
per attention and cheering words of
his trainers.
"Go away," he said to all of them.
"Leave me alone," and then his broad
chest would heave and the tears
would flow unrestrained from his
eyes. Gotch only smiled after the
match was over. He said the result
was exactly as he thought it would
Story of the Match.
The story of the actual wrestling
that was done, is soon told. Time
was called at 3:15 o'clock. The con
testants immediately locked hantis
and began feeling each other out. For
five minutes, they tugged at each oth
er's neck, wrists and arms, but neith
er obtained a dangerous hold. It was
Gotch who first turned attention to
the legs. He made several fake pass
es at Hackenschmidt's knee, befortf he
finally obtained a hold at the end of
eight and one-half minutes. Once the
Iowan's massive hands were fastened
on Hackenschmidt's left leg, the Rus
sian went down. He struggled out
of that and another hold of the same
kind and then became the aggressor.
At ten minutes Hackenschmidt got a
body hold and put Gotch to the mat,
but he was down only an instant.
After fourteen minutes of wrestling,
Gotch started Hackenschmidt down
with the neck hold, faked a crotch
and then quickly worked the Russian
into a half Nelson. They struck the
mat together, head to head. Then
Gotch pivoted on his opponent's stom
ach, clamped on a reverse body hold,
and the first fall was over. j,

The first five minutes of the second
bout was a repetition of the firBt,but

The committee which made this important selection

What can I say? I was beaten, and
that fairly. Gotch did not use the
tactics which characterized our last
meet, and for that I am glad to give
him all the credit and prestige due
him. 1 have no kick coming and was
beaten by the better man.
I suffered in the last two weeks
from a couple of sore ligaments in
my leg, but they did not bother me
in the match today. Gotch is a won

that one is in danger at all times.
I was nervous and did not have
the command over my muscles that I
should have had in that first fall,and

1 shall leaVe Chicago immediately
and probably will not return to this

Gotch once more, but not for a year
or more.
Gotch won honestly and fairly.
Hack did not show his usual game
ness or aggressiveness. I do not
doubt that he was not in the best nf
condition, for he looked worried and
frightened when the match began. He
begged Gotch to release his punishing
toe hold and evidently was in great
pain when Gotch forced him to defeat.
On cleverness alone Gotch should
easily remain the champion for ten
more years. He is without doubt the
most scientfic man I have ever seen
on the mat.
His work in the first fall was mar
velous and so fast that I could scarce
ly follow it myself, altho I was witn
in a few feet of the men.
Gotch first faked a crotch hold.
Then suddenly he secured a half-Nel
son on Hack. In the wink of an eye
Gotch pivoted on Hack's stomach,
switched to a reverse body hold and
had downed his man. It was the
speediest shift I have ever seen made
on the mat.
Hackenschmidt was in great pain
during the period when Gotch had the
toe hold on him. "Don't hurti, my
toe," he cried at first. Bui Gotch con
