TOPEKA STATE JOUKNAI WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE 27, 1900. SPORTIHGJIEWS. Big Ous Rulilin Knocks Sailor Sharkoy Out. Did the Trick at the Close of Fifteenth Round. 'TWAS A HARD FIGHT. Tom Almost Had Akron Giant Going ia Fifth. Betting Had Been All in Favor of Beaten Pugilist. Sea Side Athletic Club, Coney Island, June ?7. For the first time in his pugi listic career Tom Sharkey went down to decisive defeat last night in the historic arena of the Sea Side Athletic club, and big Gus Ruhlin, the Ohio pugilist, was lils conqueror. It was. a clean knockout after 15 rounds of fighting that made a memorable ring battle. Save in the matter of aggressiveness Ruhlin led from the first in every feature of the frame, and at all times had the fight well in hand. There was apathy as to the flsht, and while there was some spirited betting, Ruhlin never showed better than ten to seven, and it was even money that he would not last tenrounds. (The management in fact, decided to put the general admission down to $1. There iwas a big crowd on hand, however, and they were treated to a rattling good light, with surprising results. Sharkey was the first man to come, and it was 1U:06 d. m. when he ap peared. Ruhlin showed to great advantage from a spectator's view point when the men stood up together. He had height and weight and reach, and looked big and muscular. His condition seemed Iierfett and his work as the battle pro gressed showed that it was. Sharkey was not lacking in the matter of con dition either, and that can not be urged In explanation or extenuation. At 10:15 when the men, answering the pong, came to the center, speculators went through the crowd offering two to line on Sharkey. Sharkey entered the ring, attended by Tom O'Rourke, Jack Sullivan, Jimmy Iiui -kit y and George Dixon. The sailor n-aa clad as usual, in green trunks with the American flag as a sash. Ruhlin entered a moment later with Hilly Madden. Kid McCoy. Charlie Goff and Jim Corbett as his seconds. The men tossed for choice of corners, and Sharkey won. taking the corner he oc cupied w hen he met Jelt'ries. Both wore bandages and little time was lost in rutting on the gloves. Roth men looked to be in excellent condition, but when they shook hands in the center of the ring Ruhlin showed a remarkable ad vantage in height over the more rupired bailor. Roth were met with loud cheers when introduced. Referee Johnnie "White gave the men their instructions enrt t he- gong rang for the fray. Round 1 Sharkey immediately as sumed the aggressive and rushed Gus to a neurrai corner, where they clinched. Tom rushed and led again, sending' both hands to the bod v. Gus was rattled but soon collected himself and landed nam witn a straight left to the Jaw. iorn rusnea again, right to the bodv but was short for head and Gus again nailed him with both hands on the head, shaking Tom up, but he came back with a rush and was mixing it up whfn the bell rang. Round 2 Tom rushed over to Ruhlin's corner and swung wildly for the head Gus planted a right over the heart and a straight left to the face, but Tom would not go back and corninsr strona- flammed his left hard to the neok. Gus then took a hand and jabbed his left bard to the face and followed with his rignt. lorn steadied himself and work ed both hands to the bodv and Gu landed left and right to the'heml The fighting was remarkably fast. Round 3 Tom rushed, and Gus met Mm with both hands to the head. "Hook low and wallop," yelled O'Rourke. but Tom w as mad and again rushed wildly. Gus slammed him with both hands, but could not keep him off. Tom then drove both hands to the body, and Gus coun tered with his left to the head. Tom dropped to escape punishment. He was right up. only to get both hands to the face and head from Gus. Tom was bleeding at the nose when the bell rang and both were tired. Round 4 Gus danced about when Tom rushed but when Tom closed planted a hard right on the sailor's body. Then they mixed it up in Sharkey's corner. Gus was very tired and Tom was little better. Tom rushed and jabbed his left to the face. He repeated the blow- and Gus sent him H'.vay with both hands to the- body. The round was much slower than the preceding ones, and both were glad to liear the bell. Round 5 Tom was first on his feet rind meeting Gus in the center planted liis I"ft to the bwly and swung his l.-ft to the jaw. Again he landed the same l unch and Gus .countered with rieht jolt on body. Roth roughed it on the rope. Gus shot a straight right to th H ue and Tom rushed him across the ring and landed a right behind the ear. Cus labbed back but was very tired ond Tom banged him with hard rights to the body and both hands to the head. Gus wast stasravred when the bell rang. Round 6 Ti m rushed and hooked his left to the jaw and Gus jabbed his left cutting Tom's right eye. Tom was wild and rushed and sw ung his right heavily to rtuhlln's jaw. They mixed it up hard b"th landing left and right swing to the head at close quarters. Tom hooked Ms left to the jaw and Gus crossed with his right, sending Tom back, and fol-lo-.ved with a hard left to the wind Roth again landed both hands to the face and were mixing It at the belL Round 7 -Tom rushed and swung left to jaw.

Gus closed and landed left and right to the facce. Tom was still aggressive and rushed Gus about the ring. Again Gus jabbed and followed with a right across to the jaw Tom dodged it. Tom rushed only to take a left to the face and a right on the jaw. Tom staggered and Gus rushed and banged with both hands to the jaw and Tom went to the floor, tak ing the count and only got to his fet as the bell rang. Round 9 Torn rushed and Gus met him w ith a straight left to the face that Jitnvd him. Tom swung wildly, but his blows landed around the neck and Gus planted both hands to the body. Tom still came on. but Gus measured him and sent a crashing ri-jht U the jaw. He could not keep the sailor away, but every time he came Gus was ready for him and sent left and right to the head with telling effect. Gus looked the best at the bell. Round 10 Gus stood in his cornet in a crouching position, and when Tom came in sent him back with a straight on the jaw. Tom rushed back and sent a terrific left to body. He tried to re peat the blow, but Gus blocked it and sent a left to the head. Gus mixed it with him and Tom made him wabble with a right on the jaw. Gus then swung a right to the body that could be heard throughout the building but the sailor was good yet and was rushing again when the bell sounded. Round 11 Tom rushed and swung left to neck. Both steadied themselves and Gus jabbed left twice .-to., the- faces Tom responded with a right on the-jaw-and Gus broke ground. Tom followed and jabbed his left to the face and up percut his right to the chin. Both were so tired they were hardly able to stand, for the aggressive sailor rushed only to take a right swing on the " jaw that staggered him. Tom swung for the body but fell short and hit Gua on the thigh before the close. - Round 12 Again Tom rushed and landed on the body. Gus jabbed his left to the face and sent Tom's head back- Tom was bleeding badly from the eye and nose. Tom rushed to a elinch and pulled Gus across the ring. They broke and Tom sent a hard right to Ruhlin's body. Ruhlin shifted about the ring.but met Sharkey s rushes with left jaos. Neither man's blows were carrying any force. Round 13 Tom rushed, but Gus danced away and Tom grinned. Gus labbed his left to the face and, torcing Sharkey to his own corner drove both hands to the head. Tom forced his way out and bore Gus across the. ring and sw ung a hard right to the head, Gus was cool and fought cautiously. He jabbed Tom hard on the face and hook ed his right, to the head, at tne same time blocking Tom's swings. Both were resting at the bell. Round 14 Tom rushed and fell short with his right for the body. Gus jab bed his left to the face, and almost took Tom off his feet. Ruhlin now seemed stronger, and three times jolted his right for the head. Tom was bad, and Gus banged him around with both hands, playing heavily on the head. It looked as if he would surely go, but by hanging on he managed to stay the round. Round 13 Tom was up first.He closed but Gus sent him away with short and right jolts on the head.Tom looked tired and Gus followed him and jabbed his head back and across his right to the jaw. Tom staggered, and Ruhlin step ped in and banged him with both hands until the sailor staggered to the tioor. He was up at the count, but unable to make a defense, and again he went to the carpet from Ruhlin's blows. With bull-dog gameness he struggled again to his feet. Gus by this time was hardly able to use his hands. When Tom again gained his feet he staggered to the sail or and sent short lefts and rights to the head that looked as if they would not hurt a child, but Tom was so badly done for he again went down under them. Again he rose blindly to his feet and Gus walked to him. Tom tried to clinch but Gus stepped back and put a straight left to the face and a right hand uppercut to the jaw. Tom toppled forward all out and Referee uohnny White waved Ruhlin to his corner.while the sailor pugilists seconds carried him to his corner, where he gradually reviv ed and was soon able to leave the ring. AFTER THE FIGHT. When seen in his dressing roomRuhlin acted like a big child. "Well, what did you think of it?" was his greeting to the interviewers. "Did not 1 go all right? i m a big slow fellow and can t fight, maybe, but I won, didn't I? Tom's a tough, game fellow and gave me a good fight, but I had not any doubt as to the ending. I'm not hurt and feel fine and whatever Billy Madden say goes with me. if he wants to right, I'll fight, I uon i care wno. - His manager, Billy Madden said: "Well, we're now ready for Mr. Jeffries and hope he will come to time without delay. I think I have the champion and will make a match as soon as Jeffries signifies a w illingness." bharkey was much downhearted, but said he had no excuses to make. He was willing to meet his conqueror again ana naa iu,uw to wager that there would be a different result on their next meeting. Jim Corbett was highly elated over Ruhlin's victory. He said Jeffries had done a lot of talking lately and will now nave to make good his bluff or quit. LAJOIES RETURN. Philadelphiana Know Not "Whether to Rejoice or Hiss. . Philadelphia, June 27.

It was his own proposition. . .ot only have I all of Mr. Robison's correspondence regarding the deal on $1,000 basis, but I also have O Con nor's evidence to produce.

An Occupation Tax and Dog Tax the Sole Income. Marshal Collects Enough to Pay Salary and Resigns. No One to Act and Those Who Have Paid Are Mad. Hunnewell, June 27. The "leading question that agitates the present city administration is the way out of the present financial embarrassment in which the city is placed. At present there is no money in the treasury and the city is in debt, the council at its last meeting having allowed bills to the amount of $10 more the treasury con tained. The occupation and dog taxes as they are now re.Vjiated will amount to about $100, if collected, and for one month S. M. Epperly was paid a salary of $10 and instructed by the council to at once col lect these taxes. During the month he collected $23.10 and lighted a few street lamps. Out of this amount he received. $10 for his services; then he resigned. Of the bills, perhaps the largest amount allowed was 30 some dollars for putting a pump in the city well at the crossing on Main street. But some of these workmen who were a little slow in getting around to the city treasury the next day were left or at least until the city collected more dog or occupa tion tax. Now that Mr. Epperly has re signed and no one chosen to succeed him, there is no one except the clerk or treasurer to collect this tax. It is evident that a warm fight will ensue in the city council soon, over a proposition to refund all dog or occupa tion tax already collected, or to imme diately collect the rest of it. But there is no money in the treasury with which to refund, and no city marshal to collect the tax; neither can the bills be paid. RUNS BANK FROM THE RANCH. A Harvey County Capitalist Too Busy With Farming to Waste Time. Burrton, June 27. John W. Shive, president of the Burrton State bank, is farmer. Five miles out of Burrton Mr. Shive owns one of the largest and finest ranches m Kansas. Thousands of fine cattle and horses roam over his broad acres, and the value of the crop raised on the ranch in a single year would make any man independent for life. In managing the affairs of the ranch and the bank ' at Burrton, Mr. Shive found that the ranch required most of his time. He accordingly put in a pri vate telephone connecting the bank with his residence on the ranch, and now he conducts the affairs of the bank over the telephone. In the ordinary course of business the cashier of the bank calls Mr. Shive up by telephone from 15 to 20 times a day, but only four times during the last three months has he found his presence at Burrton actually necessary. Mr. Shive. who is one of the wealth iest men in Kansas, made practically all of his money on the farm. He came to Kansas in the first of the 70s with hard ly a dollar, and took up a claim, which is still his homestead. He has added to it until he is now, with but one or two exceptions, the largest land holder in Harvey county. By -his keen business sagacity and adaptation to the circum stances, he has amassed a competence, while others who started under more favorable conditions, left the state and pronounced farming a failure in Kan sas. CLOUD COUNTY'S CROP. Wheat the Best in Yield and Quality Ever Known in Its History. Concordia, Kan., June 27.

Think of Brooklyn outbatting Philadel phia nearly 2 to 1 and yet being beaten. This is worth a place in the League Guide. It Is related that Capain Ryan, of ha Chicagos, took a sudden dislike o the de livery of Deacon Phillippe the day after the big fellow had fanned him a couple of times. It was impossible to get Ryan to go into the game again during tne Pittsburg series. The Indianaoolis club is severely crip pled, which accounts for its wretched showing. Hartsel. its star outfielder, is still sick with typhoid fever. Seybold is so lame he can hardly hobble about the neia. Philadelphia papers are lambasting Orth for his ninth-inning let downs. "Hank," according to the dictionary, is a skein liable to get badly twisted. O'Day lives up to his name. Philadel phia Xorth American. Chicago should profit by the short right field fence at White Stocking park. Any hard fly to right will carry over the fence. So far, however, the Comiskeyites have placed only two hits over this fence. If Zimmer has not grown gray-headed in the service he certainly Is bald. When he takes off his cap his head looks like a billiard ball. Ebbets says there is no truth in the re ported transfer of Brooklyn to Washing ton. "I think Garvin Is having the unusual experience of a youngster coming into the leagues before he hardens." says one man. "If you hurry them in before they have passed through the American or Eastern leagites they are bound to show the in- and-out form. Then, again, it you sena a player to the American the wealthy clubs get the good ones. So it's a big chance you are taking." There has been a good deal of scrib bling about the Detroits losing games by one run. The statement is true, but mis leading. In a majority of instances their opponents have not played the ninth in ning, and in others the winning run was scored before the ninth was finished, the winning hit bringing in runs that could not be scored. Detroit Journal. Pitcher Jack Katoll, of Chicago, has good reason to be proud of his feat of shutting the Hoosier champions out twice in one series. . Perry Werden, the big and popular first baseman of the Minneapolis baseball team, has been suspended without pay. That was the story which caused much speculation among the fans. President Saulpaugh refused to talk on the sub ject, referring all questions to Manager Wilmot. The latter admitted the truth of the rumor, but refused to talk further about the matter. "When Werden gets ready to go to work again he may be re instated." said Wilmot. "I do not care to say anything else about it." Chiles, and Flick, of the Phillies, each won a silver pitcher for making home runs. I,eave Cross has again won a verdict in his suit for J3u0 salary from the Phila delphia club. One of the chief weaknesses attributed to the Bostons is stupidity on the bases. This, it is said, has lost them a number of games. There are some of the Brook lyn players who could give them lessons about what to do, how to do it and just when to do it on the bases. Douglass is off in his catching and throwing this season. He has at least one passed ball every game, and the run ners have a picnic stealing bases. BURLINGTON ROUTE. New Through Train to Portland and Puget Sound.
