SPORTIHGJEVJS. Terry McGovern and Frank Erne Matched at last. To Fight July 16 at Madison Square Garden, A BOUT OF TEN ROUNDS To Weigh in at IUngside at 128 Pounds Each, Light Weight Must Stop Feather Weight Before Limit. New Tork, June 26. Frank Erne and Terry McGovern have a,t last settled all the conditions for a match and will meet before th Twentieth Century Athletic club at Madison Square farden on July lj in a ten-round bout. After spending several-weeks in haggling over the terms of the match, the fighters came to an agreement yesterday- and signed articles. The articles call for a ten-round bout at lcs pounds at the ring side, and Erne un dertakes to knock Terry out before the limit has been reached or lose the de cision. The winner is to take the whole purse. More than two weeks were spent over a difference of one pound, McGov ern holding out for the weight at which the match was made, while Erne wanted to tight at 129 pounds. Only a short time ago it was reported I-rne had difficulty in making 133 pound.-. 1' those reports were true, how is he go ing to get down to 128 and remain strong? l-'rank is long on science and ring gen eralship, but a bit short on hitting pow ers. Not that he cannot hit hard enough for ail purposes, but he never meandered fa round with a chip on his shoulder as a JviiLK'kerout. True, he put some of his opponents down for the count, but not until after he had almost battered them Into submission. In "Terry" he will meet a boy with a face and jaw callous to punches. One that cari and will wade in with head ilown, jaws firmly set, ready and willing to exchange blow for blow, He can rip ip into the stomach with either hand and never overlooks an opportunity to slip a ft-w over on the jaw. He carries steam enough behind his blows to compel any lightweight to take the floor for a count of ten. He is a knockerout in every sense of the word, and that is more than, can be said of Erne. Such being the case McGovern's chance of scoring a knockout is the better even though tiie conditions call for Erne to do the trick. It will be a treat to followers of pugil ism to see "Twry" acting the defensive jart in a fight. He hns always been up tuid after his opponents to put them away in as quick time as possible, and will be tip in Uh air should he attempt other t iCtics. If the makers of the match and th public are of the opinion that Mc- Invern is giving any weight away to 3ano it. would be just as well for them to disillusionize- themselves. Erne will have considerable trouble in making 128 pounds. McGovern would have quite a bother in coming in at less than the weight h greed upon. It is a question .whether there will be over a pound's dif 1'Tenee K-tween the pair when they meet and so far as handicapping Erne is con cerned the impost should be the other way. At 128 pounds McGovern has as much of a chance as Erne, WILL GO CAMPING. Jim Jeffries and Sam Humble Have a Trip Arranged. Columbus. O., June 2S. Champion Jim Je?trU;.s appeared before a crowd of 1.5UU people as an umpire at the Interstate h-ague ball grounds. After the game he put In the evening in visiting relatives in this city, whose name is legion. He was born in Fairfield counts, not far distant, ii ml many members of his family have since emigrated to Columbus. About the middle of July he will return to this city and spend several weeks in visiting his old home and getting acquainted with his relatives. On this trip his mother and Ktster, now in California, will accompany him. and at least one week will be spent Su a camping trip with Detective S. B. H umble, of this city, together with a party of Columbus friends. Jeffries, through- his manager, Mr. O'Neil, expressed his willingness to fight any one at any time. His hands are now in perfect condition, and his arm, which has been In a cast ever since his last fitrht. has regained the former vigor. He broke a small tendon in his left elbow in his right with Fitzsimmons, and during his fight with Corbet t he was unable to use this arm properly. His physician placed it in a plaster cast, and it has retrained tone, so that now the cast may be ripped off whenever it is desirable to do so. Owing to this temporary disable ment he has been unable to keep up his dumb-bell work and boxing, but declares that he never felt better in his life than now. After he finishes his vacation in this city he will go east to rehearse for his part in the play which Brady is now having written for him. and in which he takes the part of a western sheriff, in a talk with a partv of friends Jef fries commented on the manner in which 3 Mxon, Corbet t and other pugilists who were considered the best of their day had gone back, after a career of hilarity, which left them in most instances with neither monuy nor health.

Mike Donlin, the present center fielder of the St. Louis baseball team, has a badly cut face to show for some uncalled for boisterous ness on his part in "joshing" an elderly gentleman with whiskers, name un known, and a cardinal-topped youth, also unknown. It all happened close to the hour of 3 o'clock yesterday morning, when Don lin and another member of the local team, believed to have been Pitcher Gus Weyhing, were enjoying themselves in a saloon at Eighteenth street and Wash ington avenue. The ball players, ac cording to Detectives Zeigler and Brady, who have since worked on the case, were strictly sober and had been out for a quiet time. They were in the best of humor and while waiting for the owl car to come along entered the saloon. They were feeling good, not gay, it is said, and when the elderly man with the profuse whiskers was noticed Don lin centered his remarks on him. "What a treat for the wind," and "The 'old boy's' got his face fenced in," were some of Mike's witty remarks. Apparently with a desire to avoid trouble, the old gentleman left the tavern, followed L.' the youth with the raven locks. Donlin and the pitcher followed the pair out, and Mike continued his re marks. Then the youth, who had all thistimekept in the background, sudden ly drew a knife and whipped it across Donlin's face. Mike fell to the sidewalk and took the count before the pitcher could revive him. Immediately the elderly gentleman and the youth de parted, leaving the two players together. Donlin was led to the city hospital, where his face was dressed. CHAMPION ATHLETE3. Some of the American Men Who Will Contest in Europe. During the past week there sailed from America 25 as fine athletes as ever trod a cinder path. They represented various colleges and universities in the east and west, and were but a portion of the quota of American athletes who are going abroad to carry America's colors to the front in the English cham pionships and the Olympic games. The plan of both the Pennsylvania and Princeton teams Is to appear in but the London championships and in the Olympic games. The others will content themselves with the Paris events. When the personnel of the American representation is considered it will be found that it is well worthy of consid eration. It contains the holders of eight world's records and no less than six American champions. The principal star and main depen dence of the American team is Alvin C. Kraenzlein. In form there can be no question but that Kraenzlein is the su perior of any hurdler and broad jumper in the world, while as a sprinter it is doubtful if many excel him. Kraenz lein will be counted on to win at least three events abroad, and possibly more, while he may win as many as six. RYAN-DONAHUE FEUD. Chicago Catcher Says He Will Retire From the Club if the Captain Will. Chicago, June 26. "If I am a disturb ing element in the Chicago baseball team I am willing to get out. As to whether Ryan or me has been the knocker in the team you can find out from Captain Anson or Tom Burns. I want to say right now that if Ryan will agree to leave the team I will. WTe will both get out. He's better fixed than I am and can afford to quit baseball bet ter than I can, but I'll promise to cut the business if he will. Ryan told me when the team was in Boston not long ago that I was in line to be traded. That was the first I heard of the matter. I never had a word with Ryan in a quarrelsome way, but we don't agree, that's a cinch." This was the substance of Timothy Donahue's statement respecting the al leged difficulties between himself and Captain James Ryan. Tim pleaded that he wished in all statements to be con servative, but that if it narrowed down to a question as to whether he or Ryan had been the disruptionist in the team, he could bring proof for his side. "Ryan broke into print with the state ment that he would not play ball on the same team with me any longer. Thai makes me sore. I don't care what Ryan thinks of me privately, but I don't like him to get into the newspapers with a wallop. I never said anything for pub lication against him." BURNS TALKS About His Meeting With President Johnson at Indianapolis. Detroit, Mich., June 26. President Jimmy Burns has reached home from Chicago, where he finished his confer ence with President Johnson. Not find ing that official there, he went on to In dianapolis, where he overhauled him.and alter a talk on Wednesday they re traced their steps to Chicago. "I laid the matter before him in a manner a little different from other kicks he has received," said Burns. "I told him what I thought and what ev erybody here believed to be true, that we were being discriminated against. I left no room for a misunderstandin between us, and am satisfied that I did not hurt the team any by seeing him. That Burn3 accomplishd something is shown by the fact that Elberfeld was not suspended forSdays after he was put out of the game by Dwyer, as the league president said would be the case on the third offense. KID LAVIGNE ARRESTED. The Ex-Lightweight Gets Into Jail For Assaulting a 'Woman. New York, June 26. A Paris cable to the Journal says: "Kid Lavigne, the prize fighter from Saginaw, Mich., has been painting Paris lurid lately. Not finding any men to fight he set upon a poor little French woman. "With her eyes black, her face bleeding, she entered the United States consulate and said Lavigne had beaten her, but all she wanted was that he be sent back to Saginaw, where he might be out of temptation and do better. Consul General Gowdy persuaded her to have the 'Kid' arrested, and he is now in the bands of the police." TWIELEE PETTINGER And Jack Barry Fanned Out by Bos tonOther Matters. Boston, June 26 Pettinger, the young Boston pitcher, has been farmed out to Worcester, as Boston will not carry over five slab artists. Pettinger is one of the most promising pitchers seen in the league for a long time, and there are several league clubs who could use him to advantage. Barry has been loaned to Montreal until Manager Dooley recovers from his injury, so that Boston must depend on Hugh Duffy for in and out field substi tute. As an infielder Duffy is positively the poorest in the league. Ted Lewis is laid up with a bad stone bruise and Bill Clarke is nursing a lame side. NATIONAL LEAGUE. AT BOSTON.

There is one man in the United States who has perhaps heard more women's secrets than anv other man or woman in the country, these secrets are not se crets of guUt or shame, but the secrets of suffering, and they have been confided to Dr. R. V. Pierce in the hope and ex pectation of advice and help. That few of these women have been disappointed in their expectations is proved by the fact that ninety-eight per cent, of all women treated by Dr. Pierce have been absolutely and altogether cured. Such a record would be remarkable if the cases treated were numbered by hundreds only. But when that record applies to the treatment of more than half-a-mil-lion women, in a practice of over thirty years, it is phenomenal, and entitles Dr. Pierce to the gratitude accorded him by women, and the honor paid him. by the profession as the first of specialists in the treatment of women's diseases. - Every sick woman may consult Dr. Pierce by letter, absolutely without charge. Every woman's letter which contains her secret remains her secret. It is read in private, answered in private, and its contents guarded as a sacred con fidence.
