Great Interest Exhibited in the Coining Battle . Between Frank Erne and Fight ing Terry McGoTern. BILLED FOR JULT 16. Brooklyn Lad Has AH the Best of the Conditions In "Weight and Terms of Bout Both Are Confident. New York, July 10. One of the most novel pugilistic attractions ever arranged by an athletic club la the ten-round eon- teat between Frank Erne, light-weight champion, and "Terry" McGovern, feath erweight champion, scheduled to take place under the auspices of the Twentieth Century Athletic club, at Madison Square Garden, ore July 16. No former feather weight or lightweight champions have ever been matched and there is much speculation as to the. outcome of the meeting between McGovern and Erne. Of the two men Erne has the greater task before him. The light champion has agreed to knock McGovern out inside of ten rounds. At 133 pounds, his normal fighting weight. Erne would likely be an overwhelming favorite, but as he fights McGovern at 12S pounds many guod judges have expressed the opinion that the Buffalo pugilist has undertaken too great a task. Erne dues not think so. He is confident that he can be strong and light just as well at 125 pounds as he can at l-si pounds. There is no doubt of McGovern's ability to make the desired weight without im pairing his strength. On paper the little Brookivn boy seems to have all the bet ter of the match. That McGovern is un willing to take any chances in training for the fight, however, is evidenced by ttie fact that he has engaged George MeFad den, a local light weight of considerable prominence and a boxer whom Erne has fought shv of, as his sparring partner. McFadden will begin his sparring bouts with McGovern tomorrow at the feather weight champion's training quarters in Jerome avenue. McFadden is a very shifty two-handed lighter and one of the best blockers in the prize ring today. With such a clever man to work with him McGovern ought to improve over his usual condition. McGovern is doing all his work with the understanding that the tight with Erne will be one of the hardest he has ever had and so will leave nothing to luck. Erne is doing faithful work at Fair Haven on the Shrewsbury, and with the help of his sparring partners is gradually reduc ing his weight to ISs pounds. If the light weight champion is successful against Mc Govern, he intends to visit England and meet the best men the National Sporting club can find. There is quite a difference in the ring methods of Erne and McGovern. Erne, who is remarkably clever, depends more on scientific tactics to score a victory than hard blows. He can hit effectively, how ever, but it is really his generalship and cleverness that win battles for him. Mc Govern, while fairlv clever, represents the slugger type of tighter. He relies very largely on swift rushes and hard blows to win. rather than scientific methods. That McGovern and Erne will make a great battle no one who has followed the careers of the two men in the prize ring doubts, and the winner will certainly know that he has been fighting when it is all over. The Twentieth Century Athletic club Is making every possible preparation for the accommodations of an enormous crowd on the night of the battle. The seating arrangements of Madison Square Garden have been changed and the total seating capacitv is now 14,000. BOTH FIGHTERS CONFIDENT. "I don't see any reason why I should not stop Erne, let alone nis stopping me. I'm strong and tit as a fiddle. Erne will find he has undertaken much more than he can handle when he tries to put me out in ten rounds." Terry McGovern. "I'm going to get down to 128 pounds if I have to saw one of my legs off. I'm no bigger than I was three years ago and I see no reason why I should not make the weight. At any rate, I intend to work as I never worked before, and my friends can rest assured that I'll face the Brook lyn boy in first-class shape." Frank Erne. NOT MUCH BETTING. It Is an extremely hard task to get any of the well known followers of the ring to express on opinion on the result of the fight. Erne naturally has a large fol lowing, but it seems that his backers are afraid to stake their money on a possible knockout. McGovern's followers are not betting much at present because the odds are not what they desire. The men who follow "Terrible Terry" imagine that Erne's friends should give at least 2 to 1 that Erne will win. McGovern has absolutelv nothing to loe in his fight with Erne. Should he be de feated lie still remains the bantam and feather weight champion. Many seem to think that Erne made a great mistake in signing to meet McGovern. JEFF-EUHLIN BOUT OFF. Fitzsimmons and Ruhlin Will Now Fight in Early August New Tork. Julv 10. James J. Jeffries will not fight Gus Ruhlin. This decision was reached last evening at a meeting at which fighters, managers and stockhold ers were presnt. jertnes' injured arm is at present in bandages and the elbow Joint is under the treatment of a physician. When the fighters met each side thought that a match would be made and a date set for some nieht in August. Al Smith held $2,500 of the champion's money and was readv to receive a like amount from Ruh lin as a forfeit. Ruhlin was ready to put up the money, but refused to do so when he round that tnere was a condition at tached to Jeffries' forfeit money. He would fight on any date provided his arm was well enough, but it not tne turieit money was to come down. Ruhlin and hi .niiinjitrer refused to enter into an agreement of the kind. They said: "Make the match, put up a loneit and h ior any reason either man fans to enter tne ring on the given date let the other take the forfeit." No satisfactory agreement could be reached. Swine- no chance to fiirht for the cham pionship. Madden and Ruhlin turned their attention to making a matcn witn me next best man. Bob Filzsimmons. They met with immediate success. Fitzsimmons wanted a fight and next to Jeffries, would rather fight Ruhlin than anybody. He was readv to talk business at once and today the men will meet and arrange the details of the fight. As for the date. Ruhlin is ready to tight at any time, the sooner the better, and Fitzsimmons wants the battle to come off in the first week of August. Fitzsimmons will begin training at once for the bout. Jeffries says that he thinks his arm will be ready for ring use by August 15, and if Ruhlin beats Fitzsimmons and wants a tight with him between that time and September 1 he can get it. He also says that when fighting is stopped in this state he will 1 erht in California or Nevada. The club offering the biggest purse or the greatest percentage of the gate re ceipts will get the Ruhlin-Fitzsimmons tight. CYCLE DATES ARRANGED.

The famous Sto ney Ford stud farm, near Middletown, N. Y., has been purchased by WTilllam C. Whitney. He will breed thorough breds on the pastures over which have roamed some of the greatest trotters and producers in this country. Lovers of horseflesh everywhere were interested in the announcement today. It was known that Mr. Wrhitney had been trying for a year and a half to se cure the farm. The recent death of the owner, Charles Bachman, cleared the way for the formal transfer, and Mr. Whitney will take possession immedi ately. Mr. Whitney's stallions and brood mares are now at H. P. Headley's La Belle stud in Kentucky. He will send them to Stoney Ford farm as soon as possible. Among them are the imported stallion Meddler, the native stallion Lis sak and about 50 brood mares. Gen. Benjamin F. Tracy has had pos session of the farm for some time and has had a number of high-bred trotting mares and several stallions there. A special arrangement has been made with Mr. Whitney by which Gen. Tracy wiil be allowed to keep the animals there. The Stoney Ford farm is known throughout the world on account of the famous horses bred there. It consists of about 700 acres of land. ROOT AND O'BRIEN Will Meet at Tattersall's in Chicago Tonight Chicago, July 10 Jack Root will make his first appearance in Chicago since last February tonight at Tattersall's. The western champion will face the hard-hitting and willing Dick O'Brien of Lewiston, Me. Since Root's last ap pearance here the middle weight has gathered a deal of experience. His four weeks' work with Sharkey and with Fitzsimmons in the east must have ben efited Jack a lot. In a talk with the writer recently in New York Fitzsim mons made the statement that he had never seen a man grow so strong and speedy in a twelvemonth as Root. "When I first started off with Jack this last trip," explained Fltzaimmans, "it took me a couple of days to realize that I had not gone back, but that Jack had come forward. In hitting power, foot work, and feinting he has improved 100 per cent." Root's opponent is no mere tyro at the game. He stood up under grueling punishment to Tommy Ryan for 14 rounds, and went over the same distance of ground with Joe Walcott. Aside from these two engagements, O'Brien twice fought "Kid" McCoy, once getting a 25 round draw out of the Hoosier, and los ing to McCoy two years later in a 10 round bout. O'Brien's most notable achievement, possibly, was his jig-time win over Frank Craig, the "Coffee Cool er." He scored a knock-out on Craig in five minutes' boxing. FUNDS FOR COACH WARD. Alumni of Pennsylvania Arrange to Buy Him a Home. Philadelphia, Pa., July 10. Alumni of the University of Pennsylvania have opened a subscription list for the pur chasing of a home for Ellis F. Ward, the coach of Pennsylvania's crew. One graduate has contributed S100 and oth ers have pledged lesser amounts. Ward is known as the father of rowing at Pennsylvania. At that institution he is ranked above Courtney, to whom Cornell presented a beautiful home. TO STUDY AMERICAN CRAFT. Sir Thomas Lipton's Skipper Starts For New York to Study Sailing Conditions. London, July 30. The yachting corre spondent telegraphs from Liverpool: "Captain Sycamore, skipper of Sir Thomas Lipton's proposed Watson de signed cup challenger, sailed today for New York to study American craft sail ing conditions. "I watched the Sybarita, Watson's latest yacht, at the Kiel races, and was unfavorably impressed. It is Valkyrie HI over again, with all its defects, and was r.o match for the Kaiser's Meteor in any weight of wind. Wratson's designs are receding rather than progressing." MACK DISCIPLINES HUSTING. Milwaukee Pitcher Wanted More Sal ary and Was Laid OS. Milwaukee, Wis., July 10. Pete Hust ing, the crack Wisconsin university pitcher of the Milwaukee team, is out of the game for the season. Not because he wanted to be, but because Manager Mack found it necessary to teach him a lesson. Husting has been pitching grand ball, and was counted next to Dowling, who is admittedly the star of the league. When he got his salary today he went to Mack and told him $150 a month was not enough; he wanted more. "That is what you agreed to play for, isn't it?" asked Mack. "Yes, but I'm worth more now. I want a raise or I won't pitch." "All right, you don't pitch then," said Mack, and he means it. Mack won't release him, he cannot go anywhere else and Mack Bays he will spend $1,000 for a new man before he will allow Husting to earn another cent this season. DROPS FIGHT ON SUNDAY BAIL Good Government League of Detroit Is Worsted in the Contest Detroit, Mich., July 10. The Good Government league, which has been fighting Sunday baseball in Detroit, has given up the job. Sheriff Stewart send ing its officers an ultimatum stating that he "will not interfere with such nice fellows as Burns and Stallings." The supreme court recently decided that it was the duty of the sheriff to enforce the law. The league proposed to manda mus the club, but this would be carried to the supreme court and the delay would outlast the baseball season. The fine on conviction is only $10 and, in view of Stewart's refusal to inter fere, the league admits that no good could be accomplished by continuing the fight. Sunday baseball In Detroit is well supported. Attendance at Ball Games. New Tork, July 10. Over 1,000,000 peo ple have paid to witness league games up to date. The figures given out make the number 1,070.000. This will amount in money to $400,000.By the time the league has played one-half the season they will have taken in money enough to pay the running expenses for the year, that is if the money would be divided up into eight equal parts, giving each club about $58,000. As it is. Pittsburg and Philadelphia have been the big winners, while Boston and Chicago are on Easy street. St. Louis and Brooklyn are sure of a handsome profit. Cincinnati will make something, and New York will be a good big loser again. As a whole the big league should clear over $300,000 this season. Did Robison Get an Injunction? Pittsburg. Pa., July 10. Followers of baseball here are watching with interest the trouble Barney Dreyfus and Frank De Haas Robison are having over the purchase of O'Connor. Many believe the St. Louis owner has secured an in junction preventing the big catcher from- playing. The trip of the local team to St. Louis may result in some solution of the difficulty, and the team's return is anxiously awaited. Zimmer is doing most of the catching for the locals, while O'Connor remains on the Dencn. The League Pennant Race. New York, July 10.

KANSAS Wellington Gold Seekers Reach Cape Nome Safely. Several Letters Are Received by "Home Folks." IN HARBOR JUNE 20. Meal of Beans, Bread and Coffee Cost a Dollar. Wages Are 810 Per Day and With Team $10 Hourly. Flour is $8 Per Hundred and Bread 25 Cents a Loaf. Wellington, July 10. The wives of the Cape Nome gold hunters received letters last night which were mailed from Cape Nome June 21. The Centennial, on which the party sailed, discharged her cargo of passengers the 20th. She was still engaged in unloading her' freight when the letters to Wellington relatives were mailed. Elmer Layne, writing to his wife says he is camped near the beach at Nome, and is enjoying good health. He says that A. Murphy is suffering with chilis and fever and looks bad, and that Joe Piatt is not well and has a bad case of blues. The health of the rest of the Wellington crowd is not spoken of, but they are all supposed to be well. The Centennial left Dutch Harbor the 14th and reached Nome the 20th, con suming seven days in making the trip. The voyage was much pleasanter than they expected, the sea above the Aleu ian islands being quite calm. Lots of ice was encountered above Dutch Harbor. There were 22 vessels in the harbor at Nome when the Centennial arrived. At Nome, bread sells for 25 cents a loaf. Meals cost $1 each. Lumber enough to make a tent pole cost him $2.50. Nome is a larger place than they expected to find, and the number of people there is surprising. The beach are all taken up, and the Wellington people will have to go a good ways Inland to get claims. The country at Nome is level, and rises gradually back from the sea to the mountains. Lawlessness is rampant at Nome. The night the Centennial pulled into the harbor, two men got to quarrel ing over a lot, and both were shot and killed. The next night another man was killed in a quarrel. The government boat had not arrived and little law was enforced except by common consent. The sun is still above the horizon at 10:30 p. m . At 1:30 a. m., it is as light at Nome as at 12 o'clock at Wellington on a cloudy day. Wages are about $10 per day, and a man and team gets $10 per hour and has all the work he want3 at that rate. We found a good many vessels here that succeeded In getting through the ice and lots of people, many of them from the Klondike, that came over the ice and beat us in here two weeks. Prices of everything are high; flour $8 per hundred pounds; coffee 50 cents to $1.25 per pound; butter 50 cents per pound; bread 25 cents a loaf, and lum ber too high to look at. One writer says: There are now on the ground 20,000 human beings and probably as many more five or six miles out of town. This is a city of tents and there are many hundred thousand dollars worth of mer chandise and machinery piled for miles along the beach. Seems as though the whole world has gone crazy and I am sure that we will have to go at least three miles to find room to put up our tents. The country is over-estimated in my opinion and the whole tract for miles is taken up, but has not been worked to any extent on account of the cold weather. Wre can only expect to work here about 90 days at best. It is still frozen and only thaws out about three to four feet in what is known as the summer season. One night about ten days ago we were within 34 miles of Cape Nome but were driven back by the ice almost to the Arctic ocean. SMELTER FOR CHANUTE. A Good Proposition Offered by Out side Capital. Chanute, July 10. A good proposition was made to the city at an adjourned session, of the council. Thos. J. Mosier, representing the Independent Smelter company, of Webb City, Mo., came be fore the council and said his company wanted to put a large smelter in at this place. He said if the city of Cha nute w-ould pay them a bonus of $6,000 to be paid when the smelter fires wet'e started, they would agree to put in a plant that would employ 200 men, and have a $10,000 a month pay-roll. They would also buy their own land. Action on this proposition was delayed. A PHILIPPINE SOLDIER Thinks the Filipinos Not Fit Sub jects For Civilization. Burlington, July. 10. Otto Kirkbride has written home from Luzon. He eays: "I tell you I am no longer an expansionist. I think there will be an insurrection here twenty-five years from now. The natives are not civil ized, and they will always fight. They pursue no course of civilized warfare, and it will be a great task to civilize them. It will require an army of 75,000 men to be retained here." SWENSSON TO STAY. Will Not Quit to Accept Presidency of Augustana College. Lindsborg, July 10.

Bethany college is only nineteen years old, has forged to the front most won derfully, had 650 students last year, and has improved financially most sat isfactorily during the past four years, but it is as yet practically unendowed.

ARRESTED FOR ARSON. Proprietor of a Store at Caney Accused of Setting Fire to It. Independence, Kas., July 10. J. J. Hoops, proprietor of the "Dollar" store, which was one of the stores destroyed in the recent fire at Caney, southwest of here, in this county, was arrested Monday, charged with arson. At the time of the fire, Hoops had his stock insured heavily, and the belief that the store had been set on fire was very strong among the people of Caney at the time. Two store buildings, toeether with the contents, and several lawyer's offi ces in the second story were destroyed. Hoops left for New York immediately, and during his absence the burned-out attorneys unearthed evidence which they think is sufficient to convict him. CHAUTAUQUA BEGINS.
