DE FOREST COULD BE MADE TO DO THINGS Byron De Forest, the Great Falls ath lete who won the all round championship meldal at the track and field meet, July ta, at Columbia Gardens, gives promise of be coming a world's record-beater in the run ning long jump. Without exerting himself, De Forest cleared z: feet and 7 inches at the gardens. This is a phenomenal jump. The world's BYRON DE FORESTI record at the present time is a2 4m inches. This was established by A. C. Kranzlein, the famous University of Pennsylvania athlete inl New York city, May :6, i89o. De Forest has had but little practice, and lie clearly shows this in his lack of formi. lie approached the mark with a few long, easy strides and made his dis tance with as little effort as a kid who hops across a ditch. Unmder a good coach he would be given, careful trainin:g ;a to how fast to run and| how far to stride. lie would be instructed as to how to rise from the mark and how \'iilnecock, 3 to I, and Idogm, iS to I, led all the way to the 4o-yard pole, where Nonie passe'd and woIl by a head; four lengths between second and third.

With improved form there is every reasoIn to believe De Forest can better the recrdl he established at the gardens by three feet, and if he can do this he will break the world's record for the jump. It is not only as a long jumper that the Great Falls athlete excels. He is a sprinter of no mean ability and a good pole vaulter. He is awkward looking on the field, but this gawky appearance hides an ability sel dom found. It is said De Forest will enter Notre Dame university in the fall. If so, his friends in Montana are sure to hear from him. Dc Forest was born in Missouri March 2Q, 1877, and is therefore 25 years of age. He has lived in this state for one year. t present he is a stenographer for J. M. aZint of Great Falls. When he enters pleoge lie will study law. lie has announced that he will take part in Montana field meets in the future. Met.ra, 104 (Frawley), 3 to I, second; S. Polk's ch g Charles Lamar, 119 (H.

Time, ':5 1 --, PRESIDENT LUCAS TO HOLD ON Baseball Magnate Will Not Resign, As Was Rumcred By His Enemies--Joke on Jim Corbett--News of Sporting World. It is refreshing to know President Lucas will not resign. Rumors were afloat for weeks. Some said the president of the Pacific Northwest league would become the manager of the Portland baseball club; others said he would resign and hie hint out to parts unknown to escape the un pleasant criticisms being hurled at him in buzchos, while otjers whispered he had a stilf higher job in sight. But the erstwhile league president has set all false alarms at rest by announcing he w.old continue in his oflicial position. Why' shpuld Lucas get dywn and out? True hle si not popular with the manage nden't of see'ral of the teams, but his work must be satisfactory if the league prospers, nid such is the present condition. Let usaa alone; the less friction among the several clubs this fall the more -chance of running along in harmony next. One on the Pompadour. CJtarles B. Ward, the song writer and wejJ-known vatudeville singer, has played it low di.on ahl mean on poor, helpless James J. Corbett. the latter is billed in large three-sheet prs, hearing a picture of himself. 542, asurroumled by smaller scenes of his k ' burly existence, to appear for a one ,Wjc's, tand al Rockaway Beach, and tell thl vlsitqJs "all about it." Ward somehow or other became aware of tiis fact, atd had his printers strike off go,ooo little slips, about the size of a visit The little dodger bore the following: Ask JIM CORBETT to Sing h "Fare Thee Well, a. Molly Darling." All f these small invitations to perturb t matter of the monologue pugilist . di tsated through Far Rockaway, re, A er(ie and Rockaway Beach, an th c ty of the thing can only be 14 - the friends of Lorbett. gt f t.. maJter is that ex-"Pom sor. l t distinguish one note RL e r u t, f Jey are green or yel l.:wpb: % d h" o e, r• the ?rndition a tittal ng, is on a par with the m wh disturbs early morning slumber by v hding, with the aid of a rancorous voice, the erstwhile denizens of the deep. Stinson to Take a Rest. P. O. Sheehan, manager of Will C. Stin son, the rpgo middle distance champion, has decided to keep his rider off the cycle track for two or three weeks until he thor oughly recovers from the fall that broke his collar bone. To fill the dates for which the Rambler rider was engaged Sheehan has secured Hugh McLean of Boston, who has been doing some fast work behind the motor tandems. Hurst to Umpire Fight. Tim Hurst, the baseball umpire of national reputation, has been selected to act as referee for the McGovern-Corbett Seventh race, quarter mile, purse $zSo: John Vinson's b g Populist, by Rena-, 129 (Bloss), a to r, first; A. W. Coffey's b m Queen T., 127 (Collis), 3 to r, sec ond; A. Neal's b g Pat Tucker, iz6 (Mc Donald), 1s to r, third. Buck Wall, mS to z; Silver Dick, 6 to S; Tommy Tucker, 20 to z; Joe Jewett, too to r; Gypsy D., ioo to z, and Clay, 30 to z, finished as named. Good start. Won by half a length; three between second and third. Time, :z2a. fight, which will take place in New Lon dun. Conn., August a9. The committee which uccided on Mr. Hurst was composed of Harry Beecher, sporting editor of the New York Journal; Otto Floto of the Denver Evening Post, and C. E. Lambertson of the Cincinnati Enquirer. When the articles of agreement were signed and the boxers failed to agree on a suitable referee It was tinally decided to leave the selection of that official to the above named committee. In considering the various names the committee followed a rule to keep from naming a mat who might not be suitable to either one of the boxers or their managers. Among the names mentioned as desirable for the place were Charley Wnite, "Phila delphia Jack" O'Brien, Jim Corbett, "Red-. dy" Gallagher of Denver, Harry Corbett and one or two others. Objections were made to George Siler when the match was first made, and for that reason his name did not come up for consideration. That Tim Hlurst is a competent man for the place goes without saying. IIe has been a prominent figure in the sporting world for nearly a quarter of a century, and besides being a caretul and considerate judge he is one of the gamnest men in the business. Accepts Curran Challenge. Tony Harris has accepted t.ie challenge of Jack Curran to wrestle in Dillon the first week in August, on the condition he (Har ris) throws Martin August i. The men will wrestle mixed style. The one who wins the quickest of the first two falls wilJ have the choice of the style of the third fall. Curran is doing his training down in Dillon.
