WESTS FOLLOWING ON THE PACIFIC COAST WINS OVER WELLS English Champion Knocked Out in Second Round. For Gold a. Crown Exciting Contest at T. A. A. Clab Rooms Last Sight. Tfc, T f Jess Willard Worked Out for Benefit of Friends. Dick Wolf "came back" and defeated Louis Hoffman in an interesting wrestling bout before the members of j the Topeka Athletic association last ' night. Wolf showed a decided improve- ! merit over his performance with T. S. ' Doctor, which was staged a week ago, j but Hoffman was a worthy contestant. Wolf got the first fall in 46 minutes and the second in 29 minutes. j The Wolf-Hoffman bout was equally as interesting as the Doctor-Wolf match, but was won in shorter time. Both men are training for future events and for that reason were in excellent condition for a gruelling contest last night. Wolf is one of the leading wel terweights of the country. Hoffman will meet Kid Jordan at Burlingame tonight and expects to get a match with McGovern at Osage City. The Zimmerman twins, of Osage City, were the feature attraction of the preliminaries. These boys are but six years old. They gave a three-round boxing exhibition and then a finish wrestling bout. The boys have been giving exhibitions of this kind for three years and have appeared in prelimin aries to a number of championship bouts. j Young Gotch defeated Robert Falkcn ! in a finish bout in the preliminary. Con- , siderable enmity exists between these boys and the contest was bitter from beginning to end. Young Gotch got the first fall in 38 minutes and the second in 18 minutes. Jess Willard. claimant for the heavy weight championship over Luther Mc Carthy, convinced his friends that he has some speed and ability. Hob Kerns worked, out with Willard. and the fans were highly pleased with the exhibition. Willard measures six feet four inches tall and has an exception ally long reach and showed exceptional fast foot work and some shadow box ing which was exceptionally clever. Willard is visiting at his home in Emmet and came to Topeka just to ac commodate his friends. Luther Mc Carthy is given credit for being the white champion, but Willard contends that he is entitled to the honor on ac count of having won decisive victory over the Missouri youngster in Madi son Square Garden. August 10, 191i Willard will probably leave his home in a week or ten days and go to the Charlie Jaeltaoa.

SPORT NOTES. New York. March 15. Gunboat Smith, the California heavyweight, knocked out Bombardier Wells, heavy weight champion of England, in the second round of a scheduled ten-round bout at Madison Square garden here last night . A right on the point of the jaw was the blow that finally put the British champion out after he had weakened under punishment. Wells had all the better of the first round, jabbing his left repeatedly to Smith's face and cleverly blocking Gunboat's attempt to counter. A 1 hard left hook followed with a left ! and right to the wind puzzled Smith. I He made wild attempts to land, miss- I ing several swings while Wells ! got in lefts and rights to the face and a right upper cut on the neck. Smith was wild throughout the round, only succeeding in landing a couple of lefts on the face. Wells came out of his corner for the second round smiling and confident, but Smith rushed at him, landing a : hard right in the stomach. Smith j rushed again, hooking his left to the head and landing a right overhand ,' swing to the jaw. Wells went down for a count of five seconds and got up dazed. Smith was right on top of him, hooking left and right and with a left hook to the jaw and a right swing to the back of the head, sent Wells down again for count of nine. .Wells struggled to his feet, but was hardly able to raise his hands in de fense, while Smith crossed his right full to the point of the jaw, sending Wells down and out for good. While Wells was on the floor for a count of six the bell rang ending the round, but he still lay helpless. He had to be carried to his corner and it was nearly ten minutes before he was able to leave the ring ana then ne had to be assisted. The result was a complete surprise, as after the first round the majority of the onlookers thought that Wells would win easily. He outpointed and outboxed Smith so decidedly in the opening session that no one thought the Californian had more than a lucky chance for victory. But Smith's rushing tactics and swift work with both hands in the second round nonplussed the British boxer and from the time of the first knockdown Wells was unable to put anvthing in the line of defense. The men weighed in at the ringside as follows: Wells, 192; Smith, 182,i pounds.
