"O Fu:dge."
Said Manager Jack Flannery of the
senatorial aspirants for a place in the
Pacific Northwest league, in the sixth in
ning of yesterday's game with the Blutte
team when the latter made 7 runs.
Flanntery probably said thingls more
forcecale than "Oh fudge," to Mr. Willie
Wizard \Wiggs. but his remarks in toto
were not audlible in the grandstand.
Flannery was angry-real angry. When
Flannery des get angry everybodly knows
it. He actually swells up, bhentd his
breast, gnashes his teeth aidl occasionally
gives vent toI a cuss word that would not
look well in print.
Mr. Willie Wizard \\'iggs played the
title role in the comidy portrayed by the
Ilelena tteam on the field yesterday, and
FIlanntry ;Id thel tlher membllelrs of the
teanm lent their errneollu'tl's sllltport to the
playing which w.util have put a hmuch of
sncool loys on a vaca it lot to shame.
\\'iggs was hit hard thr g:i.hoit the first
five innintgs tof ithe game and in the sixtb
inning the lBft.es junlped onto him vi
ciously and pIIndtll his dielivery until they
got ashaield ll f lthemselvs'es.
The uoislatlugl.ht continuel until Flannery
who was playing sicond base. li'st his tIm

SANS WILL MEET
GEORGE M'FADDEN
FORMER HAS BEEN SUBSTITUTED
FOR JIMMY BRITT, WHO INJURED
HIS HAND IN RECENT BATTLE.
San Francisco, June 6.-Joe Gans and
;George McFadden have agreed to fight
in July before the Ilaycs Valley Athletic
club,, though articles have not yet been
signed. They will mneet at about 135
pounds. Gans(; has been substituted for
Jilmmy lBrit, who withdrew on account of
his injured hands.
(ais and McFadden last met in a ten
round contest at D)enver a year ago. The
mI.ieting resulted in a draw. The men
fought tunder the Chicago revision to
Queensberry rules-hit with one arm free
and protect themselves in the clinches.
While hnt satisfactory from a sipectators
point of view it was one of the clever
est battles ever fought in l)envcr.
The mlen were in a conest:ant mix through
the ten rounds. lThey were in excellent
conldition and both fought rantiolus.
MclrFaddel is unlquestiotlably one of the
cleverest light weights in the busi.ness ;ind
will give (;:ans a hard game.
Int view of Gans' rece'('t easy victory
over Frank Erne,. lie will no ldoulbt be
the favorite in the betlting against Mc
I'nitil (;ais eat ErneI and reclaimel him
self, he has teen under the stigmta of the

GOSSIP ABOUT SPORTS
It is just such fiascos as King and De
I.one, the pool players, attempted to put
ulp on the public that ruins the legiti
nate sport. King admits that he went into
the contest for the purpose of rusing the
public whlo might patronize the exhibition,
to say nothing of what miigiht happen to
those who Iliglht be inclined to bet mnoney
on the result. No wonder that pool and
I,illiard conllteCsts have never beeni popular

The ltutte league tianr is playing good

out of third place and with a percentage

RAIN INTERFERES
WITH THE RACES
SCEPTER FINALLY WINS A RACE
KING AND QUEEN GET A
DUCKING AT THE DOWNS
London, June 6.-Ladies' day at Epsom
was marred today by the weather. King
Edward, the Prince of Wales and other
members of the royal family started for
the course in a downpour of rain and con
sequently the roads leading to the Downs
lacked much of their usual picturesque ap
pearance.
Many of the race-goers preferred to
travel by train, but a sprinkling of people
adhered to the time-honored custom of
attending the Oaks in coaches and other
conveyances and at intervals between
showers the enclosures were gay with
bright dresses.
Sceptre Makes Good.
The race for the Oaks stakes of £4,0ooo
for 3-year-old nllies, about one mile and a
half, was won by it. S. Sievers' bay filly
Sceptre. Col. H. McCalmont's chestnut
filly, Glass Jug, was second, and Lord Cad
ogan's bay filly, by Prisoner out of Simoon,
was third.
The betting was 5 to a against Sceptre,
io to I against Glass Jug, an. 65 to t
against the Simoon filly.
Fourteen Horses Ran.
Fourteen horses ran. Sir J. Blundell
Maple's bay filly Simoon led to the straight
where Sceptre, who started well, took com
mand apparently at will, drew to the front
and won easily by four lengths. A length
and a half separated second and third
horses. Ballantrac was fourth. The time
was 2:46 3-5.
The race was run while the rain was
falling. Mr. Sievers and Sceptre received
a rare ovation.
The Simoon filly was ridden by Maher,
the American jockey.
Sceptre in April last won the 2,ooo
guineas stakes, and in May captured the
zo,ooo guineas stakes.
KING AND DE LONE
POOL MATCH OFF
DE LONE SAYS KING IS A FAKIR AND
QUIT BECAUSE HE WAS
FAIRLY BEATEN.
The pool contest between W. \V. King
and young DcLone of Great Falls was not
resumed last night. It is off for good.
DeLone most emphatically dtleics the
statement made by King that the former
intended to give him the double-cross,
and further says that he can beat King
honestly and that King knows it.
Speaking of the affair, DeLone -ays:
"King's statement that I was giving him
the double-cross is absolutely untrue. lIe
refused to go on with the game unless I
would allow him him to will and this I re
fused to do. Hie then called the match off.
King knows I can beat him any mark of
the road.
Broke King in Great Falls.
"I broke him when he was in Great
Falls before he came to Butte. He mis
represented the situation to me about the
game drawing in Butte. We had an at
tendance of about to each night. As there
was no money in my going on with the
match, and as Mr. Carson, at whose place
I am employed in Great Falls, desired me
to return to the Falls, I threw up the
match. King's statement that I agreed to
permit him to will is also untrue. He
made all the arrangements and did all the
planning, but I never consented to permit
him to win."

The catcher has not yet been selected.
Roger Skelley is manager of the team
and has placed himself on the substi
tute list, together with Frank Jacquemen.
Joseph Callahan, Sheriff Jeff O'Connell,
Fred Agatz and Sidney Miller. The chal
lenge issued by the Helena Elks' has
been accepted by Butte's Elk team, and
the game will be played during the gatm
bol on the green of the Elks' in this city
next week.
When Young Corgett was asked con
cerning the deft of Benny Yanger and the
posting of $i,ooo as a forfeit he replied:
"We will take care of Yanger at once.
Johnny will be in Chicago in a few days
and will then settle all arguments. I am
ready to meet Yanger or anyone else, and
think the outcome will be satisfactory to
my friends. When we were in Chicago
last spring tiertz was making the same
kind of talks. I suppose when we get
there it will all go up in smoke. They
will impose such conditions it will be ab
solutely impossible for me to comply with
them. If the conditions are fair you may
state that Yanger and myself are as good
as matched right now. Benny is pretty
wise; he don't forget the beating I gave
him in Denver a little over a year ago.
In his heart lie knows I can beat him."

DAY IN COURSING.
Probably the best card of the coursing
season will be presented at the Wes
Side park Sunday afternoon and if the
weather is pleasant there will be a large
crowd out to see the dogs and rabbits
scamper.
Owing to the fact that part of last
Sunday's card is left over the races will
commence at I o'clock in the afternoon.
The first round of the 24 will be run
down, then the second round of the post
poned stake, and the rounds will then
be sandwiched until the end.

"The American pugilists in London are
nearly all installed at the Tw'o Brewers,

Hertfordshire, about 30 miles from I.on

his brother Jacob. Johnny Gorman, Kid
McFadden, Tom Sharkey, Eddie Vernon,
Yank Kennedy and Tommy llogan are in
the camp. Gorman is to meet Tommy
Ryan, so it is announced. McFadden
meets Jinm Williams on June a. Williams
recently lost to Tokell, but the champion
refused the match when it was offered
him, so Williams was taken ou. The
pugilists are all in good condition. Al
most daily fashionable parties from I.on
don go out to the catnp in automobiles
and four-itn-hands. The tmen are behav
ing themselves and have created a good
impression. llogan has challenged any
126-pounder. Sharkey got a great recep
tion when he arrived on May 14. lie was
driven from Waterloo station to the Na
tional Sporting club in a four-in-hand
coach, withl a brass band ahead. At the
club he was given a banquet.
"Sharkey, in a speech, said that after
his fight with Ruhltn he would fight
Jeffries, if the tatter were still champion,
before any club in the world, and would
bet $5,00o of his own money on himself.
"In addition to training, Sharkey is
keeping an eye on the' races. He brought
six trotters with him. They will prob
ably be seen at the Wembley and Parsoles
park meetings.
