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

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
