Bob Fitzsimmons o( Australia, but now an American citi zen, met Gus Ruhlin, the Akron giant last night before the Twentieth Century club.at Madison Square Garden and won by knocking the Ohioan down and out in the sixth round. Before the fight and for some weeks past there have been many reports to the effect that Fitz was too old to cope successfully with his younger opponent. It was argued that Fitz's well known knowledge of the game and his capability of hard hitting would not be able to counterbalance the youm arm strength as well as the recently acquired ring tactics of the Ohio man. Now. how ever, all this has been changed. Fitz did the trick cleanly and cleverly. It was a fierce and bloody battle while it lasted and at times it looked as if Ruhlin would would get the better of the older man, but Fitz at the proper time would cut loose with bis fearful body blow, which finally snuffed out the Ohio boxer's light. The betting all along had favored Fitz. many wagers at the rate of 100 to 80 on Lanky Bob being made. But at the ring side, there was a flush of Ruhlin money which forced the odds to take a turn in Ruhlin's favor at the rate of 100 to SO. This state of affairs did not last long, however, and by the time the men put up their hands for the opening round they were equal favorites, even money being the rule. Fitz conceded about 32 pounds to Ruh lin. and this in itself was a serious han dicap. But, as the result showed, Fitz was equal to the task he had set him self and won out with that terrible solar plexus blow which, whenever it landed, shook Ruhlin from head to foot. From the word "go" the men started in with hurricane-like force. Both men were wild at times, but Fitz was always the quicker to steady himself. Ruhlin clinch ed a good deal, and for three or four rounds was the aggressor. He landed some hard stright lefts on Fitz's face and swung his right to the body and head with fearful force. Several of these blows staggered Fitz but none of them landed on the mark, as Fitz was too shifty. At times both missed swings with either hand, but many of Ruhlin's were dodged in the cleverest manner. Fitz forced Ruhlin to break ground and in a hot mixup the Ohio man was al ways the- first to ease up and take ref uge in a clinch. Time and again Fitz forced Ruhlin to the ropes, from which position Ruhlin got away rather clum sily, while Fitz was always very quick in his foot movements. When Ruhlin's rose began to bleed from a left punch the sight of the blood seemed to have a deterrent effect on him and Fitz waa quick to see this. On the first signs of weakness on Ruhlin's part Fitz began his attack on the body and each blow which he landed there made Gua winch with pain. Fitz's handlers kept urging him to play for the solar plexus, but Fitz only tried it occasion ally. Evidently he was waiting an op portunity for a right swing to the mark. In the fourth and fifth rounds both men showed plainly the effects of the stiff and rapid work they had done in the preceding rounds. Both were tired and leg-weary, but Ruhlin showed up much the worse of the two. Fitz was always the quicker on his feet at the call of time, but now and then during the rounds he seemed to stand still and glare at his opponent. Ruhlin at these times also stood still, being evidently grateful for the chance of breathing which Fitz afforded him. Just otiee Fitz. touched the floor, when he slipped down from a clinch at the end of a round. In the sixth round Ruhlin was slow in coming to time, while Fitz Jumped at his. man. Fitz got around Ruhlin and while the latter sent stright left for Fitz's -head Bob sidestepped safely and landed lefts on the body and right to the head. With a volley of lefts and rights to the head and neck, and with a fearful left on the solar plexus, Fitz sent Ruhlin in a heap to the floor. This was the beginning of the end that soon followed. Ruhlin, after takjng nine seconds of the count, arose to his feet groggy from the effects of the blow. Fitz knew he had his man and .was ready for him. As soon as Ruhlin got up Fitz rushed, sending two lefts to-the face and then shot his right with fearful force to the point of Ruhlin's jaw. Gus pitched forward as if struck with an ax and fll on his face to the floor, where he was counted out, and had to be carried to his corner. Wild scenes were then en acted in and about the ring. It seemed aa if everyone in the building wanted to greet the winner or sympathize with the loati, auu ine ponce officers had a busy quarter of an hour in getting the people out of the building. Fitz left the ring five minutes after he had delivered the winning punch, but it took Ruhlin 12 minutes to come around sufficiently to be able to walk to his dressing room. Round 1 They met In the center of the ring and began feinting. Fitz landed a lightright ontheear and Ruhlincoun tered with a light right on the chest Ruhlin bored in, putting his left across the chest, sending Bob back to the ropes. Fitz broke ground and came to the center quickly. He fell short with the left and right to the body. . Fitz hooked left to the chin and Gus came back with left and right on the chin. Fitz missed left and right swings to the head. Fitz bored in, but in the mix up Gus beat him off to the ropes with left and right to face. Ruhlin went at Bob with both hands to the head, cut ting Bob's left eye, and Bob slipped to the floor. As he got up Ruhlin, who did not hear the bell, swung on Fitz's face, Bob's seconds claimed a foul, but it was not allowed. Round 2 Gus was the aggressor. Bob ducked a left swing and they ex changed right and lefts on the face and a rattling exchange followed. Fitz hooked his left to the nose, bringing blood, and another rapid mix-up follow ed. Bob bored in, but Gua met him with left and right to the face. Both were fighting wildly. Fitz sent a hard left to the body, which made Gus wob ble, and he clinched. Ruhlin sent a left to the face and repeated the blow. Fitz shot his left to the ear and brought his right up to the body. A left jolt put Gus off his fee. He tok the count. Neither of them heard the bell, and each was so rattled that he did not know his corner. - - Round 3 Gus came out very slowly 1 but sailed in and exchanged lefts on the body. Fitz missed a left swing to the head but followed with a right on the law. Fitz hooked a left to the head. They exchanged lefts to the face. Gus kept jabbing until Fitz suddenly side stepped and swung his right to the head. Both men were wild, missing several swings. Fitz was the steadier and drove a hard right to the body, but Gus countered with a left to the face. The men stood still glaring at each other. Fitz sent a hard left to the wind. Gus clinched and held on, but broke at the referee's bidding. At the close of the round Fitz sent left ana right to the face. Both were tired when they went to their corners, but Fitz seemed the fresher. Round 4 Fitz was first up.but Ruh lin met him with a right on th chest and Fitz swung left and right to the head and they came to a clinch on the ropes. Gua tried a left to the head, but fell short. Gus clinched. When they broke away Gua put left and right to the head and jabbed a left to the head. Fitz missed a left swing and Gus got his right to the body. Gus sent three lefts to the face and then sent a left and right in that shook Fitz to his toes. Clinches were frequent and both men were very tired. The work on both sides was wild. After a clinch Gus sent right and Jeft to the head three times. Fitz went back with left to the solar plexus and forced Gus to the floor, where he took the count. Gus came up very groggy, but knew enough to hold out his left. Fitz missed a swing for the head, Ruhlin ducking underneath at the clang of the bell. Round 5 Fitz came out the fresher. Gus tried a left swing, but Fitz dodged. Fitz sent a left swing to the face and they clinched again. He dropped his left to the stomach and right to the jaw. They exchanged lefts and rights on the body. Fitz jabbed left in face and Gus swung his right to the nose. Both countered with lefts on the body and clinched. Gus jabbed left to the face and Fitz sent left to face. Fitz then put a hard left on the body and threw his right over. Fitz sent left and right to the head and sent Gus reeling around the ring. Both men were bleed ing from mouth and nose. The round ended with Fitz smashing Gus on the face with both hands, the Ohio man be ing on the ropes when the bell rang. Round 6 Gus was very slow coming out. They exchanged light lefts and clinched. Gus got his right inside land ing on the chin and Fitz countered with a left on the eye, raising a big lump over Gus' eye. Gus broke ground with Fitz following him. Ruhlin man aged to stave off Bob's leads with a straight left. Fitz bored in. sending his right to the body and Ruhlin clinch ed on the ropes. After they broke away Fitz followed Gus up with lefts and rights to the head. With lefts to body and jaw he dropped to the floor. Gus took the count but when he arose Fitz gave him no time, but landed a right swing to the jaw and put him out. Ruh lin was carried to his comer, and Fitz was declared the winner. Time of round two minutes and ten seconds. AFTER THE BATTLE Fitz "Was Somewhat Dazed Ruhlin's Friends Claim He Was Overtrained. New Tork, Aug. 11. Fitz was still a little bit dazed when he reached his room on the Fourth avenue side of the garden, and of some of those who gathered about him he asked if it was not the fifteenth round in which the fight was finished. He soon recovered his reason, and then in dulged In a hearty laugh. "Well." he said. "I'm an old fellow and a has-been, eh? Well. I guess I was good enough for Mr. Ruhlin and he was not so bad, eh? That was as tough a battle as I over went through, but I'm still good enough for a few more. Ruhlin is a good one and with a little more experience he will about do. M& hit me some corking wallops, and al though I did not realize It at the time. I can tell vou he can Dunch a bit. I was very tired, but the further the rout went the more positive i reit tnat i couiu nnisn him. Toward the close Ruhlin grew very weak and I knew I had only to steady my self a little in order to get him. He gave me a good fight, and I can give him noth ing but praise." Hob s seconds wished him to so to a bath right away, but he refused, saying his wire was waiting nim ana ne must ko home. And as soon as he got his clothes on he left the building, followed Dy an aumiring ana eneenng crowa. Ruhlin when he reached his room was in a sort of a trance, and it was a long time before he fully understood that he had been defeated. He was badly bruised about the head and both eyes were almost closed. He did not care to talk, but man aged to say: "1 did the best i couid. and no man can do more. Fitz whipped me, and that's all I can say about it. Billy Madden. Ruhlin s manager, de clared that Gus' defeat waa due to over training. James J. Corbett, who acted as one of Ruhlin's seconds, also declared that Ruh lin was overtrained. "I know this," he said, "for he waa with me during my preparations for my bout with Jeffries. "After that Gus continued training for his battle with Sharkey and worked even harder after that for his bout with Fitz. I warned him that he was doing too much, but he imagined that he could stand it. Anybody could see last night that something was wrong with him, as he sent the right to the jaw repeatedly, but the necessary strength was not be hind the blows."

The public will never 'get ' a line on Norwood Gibson's -ability as a pitcher until he is played in a National league game, and given proper support both with the bat and in the field. Why not try Gibson in a champion ship game? Allen's men will hardly be able to nose out Brooklyn. Manager George Davis didn't wait to try Matthewson, his college twirler, against the Lonesomeville team. He patted the young fellow on the back and sent him in against Brooklyn after the champions had a big lead on the Giants. That is the way to try out a pitcher. "Brooklyn has struck Its old form again, and the western trip of the champions opens auspiciously with two straight victories from Chicago. Over 18.000 persons witnessed the two games. Pittsburg is playing strongly, and in Saturday's game pulled the Philadel phians down. The two teams are not far. apart, and Pittsburg has a good lead on third place. The western series may again force the Quakers out of second place. Pittsburg seems to be the team most eligible for the job. St. Louis has taken a good long lead on the Giants." New York World.

Two Train Kobbers Killed in Battle at Goodland. Bandits Who Recently Held Up Passengers at Hugo. " ONE SnOT, ONE BURNED Located by Officers on a Ranch Near Town. Two of Sheriff's Posse Badly Wounded in Melee. Goodland, Kan., Aug. 11. Both of the bandits who robbed a Union Pacific train near Hugo, Col.,last Saturday night, kill ing W.J. Fay during the affair, were killed by a posse four miles north of here Friday. Before they were killed they shot and seriously wounded two of the possemen, George Culllns and J. B. Riggs. One of the robbers was shot in the forenoon as he was making a break frTTi a ranch house where the posse had the two surrounded, and the body of the other is in the ruins of the buuaing al ter it had been burned by the posse yes terday afternoon. Whether one of the many shots fired Into the building killed him, whether he shot himself or whether he died in the flames is not known. The two robbers came to the ranch of D. E. Bartholomew, where they were killed on Wednesday. They asked for shelter and something to eat. Bartholo mew gave them the best he had and asked few questions. They volunteered the information that they did nqt want to go to town, as they were ragged ana unpresentable. The first suspicion that was aroused against them was wner they sent a boy to town to get the Den ver papers. The boy gave a full account of the men to the officers here and his description convinced Sheriff William Walker that they were the Hugo rob bers. Friday morning Sheriff Walker and a posse, including E. C. Biddison, J. xi. Riggs, George Cullins and several others, went to the ranch. Sheriff Walker and one of the others dismounted and went toward the house, but their approach was seen by one of the men, who closed the door and remained passive until it was kicked open by the sheriff. Then a general fire began. After several shots had been exchang ed and the other members of the posse had joined thier comrades, one of the robbers jumped through a window and endeavored to make his escape, firing repeatedly. He tried to reach the horses but before he could get away he was shot and instantly killed, but not before he had shot Cullins and Riggs. Biddison fired the shot that brought the robber down. After the killing of the first robber the posse withdrew, leaving the dead body where it lay, but carrying away the wounded Cullins and Riggs. Sheriff Walker telegraphed to Denver for a can non to batter down the cabin, and while waiting for its arrival a desultory fire was kept up on the refuge of the remain mg bandit. The man inside the house was armed with a Winchester and a too near ap proach drew his fire.' About 4 o'clock some men, by crawling through a corn- held, got to a shed near the house and from this place threw two railroad fusees to the roof of the house, setting it afire. It was not many minutes until the entire building was in flames, but the robber made no sign and if he waa not shot by a bullet from the many that were fired at the house from the outside he found his death in the flames. A rifle shot was heard in the building while the fire was burning, and is possible that the robber shot himself to avoid crema tion. His body has not been recovered trom tne ruins. There is no doubt about the men beiner the train robbers. On the body of the man shot in the morning was found a watch, two black calico face masks, a lady's chain and charm and an opened envelope addressed to some unreadable name at Hugo, Col. He was tall, with black mustache and commonly dressed. The body was brought to town last ev ening, where an inquest will be held. Both men were about 30 years old, and or the desperado style, having threaten ed to shoot several farmers who refused to keep them. The house on the ranch, with its eon tents, was valued at $1,200 and will be paid for by the county. JKlgga and cullins, who were shot in the fight, are doing well and may re- CITY WANTS PAY. Pittsburg Seeks to Recover Money .Expended on Smallpox Patient Pittsburg, Aug. 11. Mayor Brewer went to Girard this morning to have an interview with the commissioners in regard to the future care of smallpox patients. . In the past year Pittsburg has been obliged to pay out $3,500 for the care and quarantine of its smallpox pa tients. The county pays the expense of these smallpox patients in the event the claim comes in from township and the city is anxious to understand where the commissioners find authority for defraying the expense of caring for and quarantining smallpox cases at Yale, while they can find no authority for paying charges connected with small pox patients in the city of Pittsburg.
