SPORTJNGNEWS Hanlon Defeated bj Battling ' Kelson at San Francisco. Fight Was a Stubborn On For Fifteen Koundsl ' ONESIDED AFTER THAT In the Eighteenth Round the Callfornlan Weakened. Police Signaled for Bout to End In the Nineteenth. -, San Francisco, July 29. In one of th fiercest battles, ever -witnessed In this city "Battling Nelson" of Chicago, last eight defeated Eddie Hanlon of San Francisco, 'the end coming in the.nlner teenth round.- From the time of the ringing of the signal for the commence ment of the fight the-youngsters began mixing matters In the liveliest manner. Hanlon fought in his usual fashion but the Chicago lad. early penetrated the guard of the Callfornian who bore sev eral facial marks before the tenth round, testifying to the accuracy and force of his opponent's blows. It -was almost an even thing until the fifteenth with the boys fighting fiercely. -After the fifteenth the tide of battle began to go toward Nelson," who throughout, al though very heavily punished about the face and body, had manifested his us ual powers of endurance and assimila tion of nunishment. The sound of the gong in the eighteenth saved Hanlon trom defeat at that period, but in the next round he came up so badly dazeu that Nelson had him at his mercy and was battering him around the ring un til the local lad became eo helpless that tha sDectators made a protest against the continuance of the now one-sided fleht. Simultaneously with a signal from the police captain to the referee, to stop the contest, a towel was thrown into the- rins: from Hanlon's corner and Referee Billy Roche pronounced Nelson the victor. Throughout the affair the blows of Hanlon did not have any ap parent effect whatever upon Nelson, who came up gamely and stubbornly to the firing line and always carried the battle to the other man's territory. At the conclusion Nelson displayed few bruises, while Hanlon's face was bleeding and cut. E. R. Thomas Buys Reliable. New York, July 30. The horses in training owned by J. J.

SET FAST PACE. Saints Get Back at Fort Scott Giants. Take Second Game of Series bj - . Score of 10 to 8. DID GOOD HITTING. Durbin Was Batted Hard from the Start. Spectacular Work of Olson Is a Feature. The four runs which the Saints made in their first inning at the bat, served as a. corkscrew to pull the cork out Of the ginger bottle in the game witii Fort Scott on Friday afternoon, and led the way to the triumphal arch. Then Olson aouble-crowrted ' the vic tory in the ninth inning, when the score was 10 -to- 8 in favor of the Ce- lestials, by climbing up- on Jacob's ladder and pulling - Jones? i line drive out of the ozone, with two men on bases and one out. and completed a pretty double play, which rung down the curtain. The little Swede was made the object of an impromptu re ception in front Of the grandstand by the overjoyed fans, and incidentally they lined his palm with silver, when they stretched out their fins and yelled "Put her there." Shiriners Scores the First Run for - Topeka. And while the praise Is being scat tered around, a sheaf of palms must not be denied Cole for his brilliant work at center and to Carter for his pitching. The big Adonis of the Saints was in good trim and incidentally mad from Thursday's horror. Before going into the fracas he shouted to his team mates: "If anyone says anything to you, cuss 'em." And then he went In and pitched one of the best games of his season with the celestials. Nine were found off .his slants, but at least half the runs followed errors., White on third. 'Is- still an experi ment, as is Shinners on short. The big fellow mixed up with three errors, and the little sorrel-top had two fast ened against record. The trouble lay with their- .throwing rather than fielding. CR5. Armsthong Has . Little Argument with Mr. Cusack. An infant, named Durbin was in the square for Ft. Scott. Armstrong had to continually feed him from a nurs ing bottle, labeled "Advice From An Old Head." When the supply ran out, the whole Ft. Scott team would come in and hand the kid teething rings to cnew on. Let mm alone: Let him alone!" yelled the fans and they were right. He was hit safely 12 times and was execrably wild. Six free passes were his contribution to Topeka, with a ball planted in Olson s slats. This same cherub pitched nineteen innings the other day against Pittsburg and gave but three hits. - It is a case of Off agin, on agin, Finnigin" with him. Harrington Slams One Against the Left Field Fence. Armstrong met with a broiling mass of roasts from the fans. His attempt to bluff Umpire Cusack in the fifth inning over a decision at first, came nearly costing him his privilege of be ing on the grounds. The big indicator man gently waved his hand at him, a la, "Back to the timbers" and Army sought the bench. His mouth bubbled over again a little later, and Cusack handed him another bunch much like a mother to a naughty child: "Be DCHAflA J An Arrow Collar ' I l WVMBJBJIWIinBJSJPMSiMt.,1 Fifteen Cents Each ?Two for 25 Cents CLOCTT, PEABOOY A CO. win or ouiett ano mohmoh (Hurra V Fifteen Cent Each I quiet." .The Tpela -runaway, closed his face. i i .-- The Saints "won 3the -game in their first and second times at the bat. They oattea around entirely In the first in ning with Shinners- lopping oyer, Dur bin gave three passes, Jones made an error, and Schrant,. Corr, and Olson hit safely, making four runs. Then in the second, hits by White, Corr, Olson and Liming, .coupled with another err ror py Jones, and a base on bails, net ted three more. . Another trio came in in the fourth "off hits by Corr and Carter, a base on. balls, a hit batter and clever base running. In fact the latter was a feature -of the Saints' work throughout the game. Oleson Ends the Game with a Spectac ular One-handed Catch. Ft. Scott scattered its run-getting through the whole game. Hits by Fredericks and Henderson and a base on balls netted two- in the second, two errors Dy wmte ana a long hit by Horath gave another brace In the fourth, bunched hits by Graves, Downs and Harrington, with a base on balls and another error by White on third, sent three Saints across the pen All tne way through it was a pretty contest, tnorougmy saturated with spirit of redemption and renewal of The score: "' - .

Springfield. '. Leavenworth at Sedalia. Iola at Joplin. Jack Frell.' whose eye was hurt in practice on. Wednesday, will not be able to play until at least the middle of next week. White will take care of his sack at third. Olson will go to second, and Shinners to short. Liming will play in the left field and one or the, pitchers in the right garden. Sedalia Democrat: "The names of Abbott and Schrant would . look well in the Sedalia line-up." There Is one thing abont it all anyway, fie Sedalia ana Topeka newspapers can sympa thize with each other just now. Captain Abbott would like to get Murray, Pittsburg s center fielder, to Topeka. But he might as well knock his head against a stone wall. The Pirate "syndicate," as the manage ment there is known, will not let the little middle field gardener go under any circumstances. There will be no Sunday game in To peka tomorrow. The syndicate at Pitts burg played the part of the poiana Chinas and wants (193 to come here. At first the Pirate agreed to make the trip to Topeka for $85, which represent ed the railroad fare. To that tne to peka management accepted. But Fri day night a telegram reached Secretary Logan from the 'Syndicate demand' ing J193 or no game in Topeka. 'rne claim was Itemized in this way: Rail-1 way transportation, 186; hotel bills, 149; street car fare, $18; loss on grandstand because of not playing at home, $40. Then on top of all of that the "Syndi cate" wanted one half of the gate re ceipts.- For genuine, wholesale, hog- gishness, the Pirates have them all skinned a mile and then some. Topeka must certainly look easy to those people down there. The management at once refused the demand and- wired back that it-would take the Saints there to play Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, ac cording to the schedule as first made, But getting right down to it, this busi ness of trading Sunday games is prom ising to prove a loss to the association. Last Sunday Leavenworth was guaran teed $150 as Its share of the receipts, and all of the receipts above the guar antee of $25 which was taken in at the Oriole-Saints game at the soldiers Home in Leavenworth on Tuesday. Figuring up the receipts of both games, and dividing them on a 12 per cent basis, it lost the Topeka management about $35. If Leavenworth's and Pitts burg s action may De taken as an indi cation of what the other clubs of the league will want for bringing Sunday games here, the association mignt 3ust as well cut out all idea of having Sun- on v baseball in Topeka. It does seem strange that such a spirit of "wanting the earth" should prevail oyer the cir cuit. , A telesrram was received Friday af ternoon bv President Sheard from Sec retary Codding of Sedalia offering Rohn and Lee for Abbott and Schrant. It didn't look good to Sheard ana ne Turn ed it down.

A clipping from the Sporting News On Harry ivane, raprmisiieiu a iiata pitcher of 1902 and 1903: "Harry Kane rithprl -52 innings for the Clarksdale club of the Delta league and the game in which the first or nis opponents made the circuit ended in a 1 to 1 tie. If the Delta were a more important lensnie Kane's performance would be accepted as the record. Chesbro went 41, Wiggs 44 and Young 45 innings with out yielding a run. Chesbro's feat was against Pacific-Northwest and Young's against American league sluggers. Kane has control ano is pracwcany invinci pppppl urn !! H H I 1 1 I i I 728 Ind. Phone 1325.

Clarksdale patrons consldei Harry the premier of his profession and want to match him and his team mates against the Memphis Southern league team for a big amount. Their challenge has not been accepted." It is probable that Dolly Gray, the Miners', first baseman will go to tha right garden and Crum, now number nine on the score book, will be brought to the initial Back. Both of the players want to make this change. Gray was Sedalla's crack outfielder last year and likes work in the garden. Evidently Umpire Owens also made a hit at Joplin. The News-Herald ex presses itself in this way concerning his initial appearance: "Not a ripple of discontent at Cox park, either from the grand stand or any of the players during the four games that have been umpired by Owens. He has put a new phase on the baseball situation in Jop lin. No more do visiting players delay the game with senseless or sensible kicks and grumble over decisions at bat and in the field. Owens Is quick, accurate, reliable and positive and has always been exactly right, according to universal sentiment. President Shlvely cannot possibly improve upon Owens. Joplin wants him to call every game that is scheduled to be played here." The baseball team will be back next Saturday to open a series of four games with Iola. According to the original schedule they were to have played here with the Gasllghters on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and then to have gone home with the Iolans for games on Sunday, Monday and Tues day. Herman Tholen, who owns the Lamplighters, is willing to give To peka a Sunday date, without askinr for the railroad line between Topeka and his town for condescending to come here. It is assured that To peka will have a game here tomorrow a week.
