the iutlaws a hard tight.
When the outie ta;in opens tiup here
this year there will be a lIt of fans on
hand to give a warmn wcteoiiie to Billy
Nash. That old-tinler has a lot of friends
io this city. and when it became known
that he hald broken inito the game again
a:nd wouihl play in this league there was
a lit of favoralle continent. U'ntil he was
hit on the head by a pitched ball Nash
was the peer of any outfielder in the busi
neI-. That accident made him a little shy
at the that. howeser, anld he dropped out
of the big leaiague ranks.
Anothier old leagtuer who may have a
nItw lease of life this sumlnler is George
I reailway. who began last season with
:uttle. Treadway is inl Itter physical
codition now than lie has been for ten
ycars. lie has lietn working hard all win
tf r and has cut out the amnler stuflT. He
i, ot at the park working every day, and
lhe way le cliouts the hall is somnething
lierce. It woull n t lie surlrising if the
hl hti-s was given a chance lby Dugdale
this year, for cyrln if he is a little slow
in the tiell, his hatting will miore than
iake tup for it. It is remembtlered here
that Tl'radway did snime great hitting for
Iutte at the bIegiinnitg of last season, but
he got to dissipating and it was all off.
lit onet i.uieu he hit Stovall so hard that
lie made that youngster wobhbly on his
linuity Br itt came back here fromnt his
wild goo ,e iha-e to IButte thoroughly dis
gutsted witlh iltily Bishop, and said he
was sorry that he did not take a punch at
Hilly after tearing tiup his ioney. The
Scattlc hports who have seent Jitmmy in
the ring think lie is the real goods, and
that nIo lightweight in the country has
anything oit him. lie is strong, fast,
game and intelligent, a cuombiination hard
to Ieat ill the squared circle.
The ,boxilng gamlle Sill olpen up here next
month. The grand jury will have died of
old age by that time and the embargo will
bIe removel, A better class of fighters
swill be seen here than in the past, and
the coutests will have to be on the square
or the kihlslt will be clapped on again for
kcep,. If the right kind of an opponent
canl be foundl for him Blritt ill probably
light here in the Inear future, No dub is
Santed. but if a mtan canll be found who
will give him a good stilT argumtent the
deal will be fixed utp. lie is the greatest
trausing card on the coast today.
There will be a large delegation of Se.
title sports at the ringside when McGov
cirn and Corbett square off in San Fran
cisco March 3t. Opinion is about equally
divided as to the outcome of the fight.
If it were certain that Corbett is in good
shape the bulk of the Seattle money would
go on him, for he is as strong as McGov
ern, doues not flnich from the gafl, has all
the better of it when it co:mes to coolness
and generalship and has the advantage of a
knockout to give hint confidence. It is
known that lMcGovern is as fit as a fiddle,
and it also known that Corbett hates to
train as badly as the small boy hates to
wash his feet in the sumnter time. If the
writer is permitted just one guess, he will
pick Corbett to win if lie is in the shape
lie ought to be for a fight of such import

"'o the Sporting Editor Inter Mountain t
on the Eastern boy. It is the consensus
of opinion among local sporting men that
(Corbectt cannot duplicate his performance
at Hartford when he laid Mc(;overn low
in the second round.
Harry C('orett is one who thinks Mc
Govern will land the long end of the
purse. "I will admit that Corbett is the
cleverer of the two youngsters," said BIar
ry Corbett this morning in answer to the
lntter Mlountain's representative, "hut .Mc
(;overn can hit faster and other things
being equal I think this is the point that
counts. I will be at the ringside ready
to wage.r any part of $5,0oo that Terry is
the goods."
MlcGovern has quit training hut Corbett
will have to keep continually at work in
order to reduce to tile required weight.
"Please decide the following bet:
"A man buys a pair of boots from a
cobbler for $5 and tenders a $1oo hill
in payment. The cobbler, not having
the change, goes to the bank and gets
the bill changed and gives the man $os
in change and, of course, the boots. The
bank finds the $too bill to be bogus, and
rmakes the cobbler redeem the bill. What
is the cobbler loser by the transaction?
The correct answer is: The cobbler
loses $os and the cost of the shoes.
Rut what has that to do with sports
atnd sporting? Our inquiry department
deals only with matters of interest to the
sporting world. Hereafter all catch-ques
tions and puzzles outside of sporting mat
ter will be ignored and only legitimate
questions answered.
Next to Harry Corbett, Eddie (raney
was the best possible selection for referee
of thle McGovern-Corbett fight. Grancy
has refereed several big mills on the coast
of more than usual importance and has
done well. Eddie Smith, who refereed
the Britt-Erne bout. Is a good man, too,
but Graney stands with the 'Frisco sports
like Dune McDonald does with us, or like
George Siler does in Chicago.
Butte is surely getting a reputation as a
fight center. l.ctters come to the lIiter
Mountain sport department every day from
eastern managers who want to match their
men with local scrappers.
J. Alex Sloan, sporting editor of the
St. Paul Daily News, wants to know if
there is a welter or middleweight in this
part of the country with whom a match
could be arranged. Hlis man is Hugh .Mc
Mahon of Chicago.
MeMahon would hardly draw well in
Butte as but little is known of him.
Frank J. Kelly, manager of Tommy and
Jimmy Reilly, asks the Inter Mountain to
arrange a match with any local men and
his fighters. Jimmy Reilly was knocked
out by Rufe Turner only the other day and
would therefore hardly be a drawing card
here. His brother, Tommy, however, is
one of tile best in the business and would
bring tile crowd at any old place.
But as the game is dead here for awhile
it is not at all likely that outside scrap
pers will get any Butte money.
This is a time when patience in fighters
is a rich jewel.
* *
Butte is sure to have that promised rac
ing meet. A letter from 'Frisco has it that
Kit Chinn will be starter again this year
and Fred Mulholland, a sporting editor of
San Francisco, judge.
Work begins today on the race track.
Horses are comling in all the time and the
meet will probably open the latter part of
June. JOHN II. MclN'T'OSll.
San Francisco, March 3o.-It is ex
pected that the Corbett-Jcffries fight will
break all coast records as a money drawer.
Ruhlin and Jeffries, who fought the last
time here, showed to a $SJ,ooo house and
about the same amount was in the box of
fice when Fitzsimmons and Jeffries entered
the arena. It is thought that the receipts
can be swelled to more than $40,000 with
the two Californians as opponents.
The bout will be well advertised and
methods heretofore not followed will be
resorted to to draw people to the city.
Indianapolis, March 3o.-There are iro
entries in the Indianapolis comlbination
meet for July 4-11.
The purses amount to $Jr,ooo. Entries
now in are front many states. There
will be running events on the first, third
and last days. The Indianapolis derby
for $2,Soo will be run July 4,
The most loathsome and repulsive of all
living things is the serpent, and the vilest and
most degrading of all human diseases is Contagious Blood Poison. The
serpent sinks its fangs into the flesh and almost instantly the poison passes
through the entire body. Contagious Blood Poison, beginning with a little
ulcer, soon contaminates every drop of blood and spreads throughout the
whole system. Painful swellings appear in the groins, a red rash and
copper colored splotches break out on the body, the mouth and throat
become ulcerated, and the hair and eye brows fall out but these symptoms
are mild compared to the wretchedness and suffering that come in the latter
stages of the disease when it attacks the bones and more vital parts of the
body. It is then that Contagious Blood Poison is seen in all its hideous
ness. The deep eating abscesses and sickening ulcers and tumors show
the whole system is corrupted and poisoned, and unless relief comes soon
this serpent disease tightens its coils and crushes out the life. The only
antidote for the awful virus is 8. S. 8, . It is matune's. eaurd com.
S posed entirely of vegetable Ingredients. 8 8. 8.
destroys every vestige of the poison, purifies the
blood and removes all danger of transmitting the
awful taint to others. Nothing else will do this.
Strong mineral remedies like mercury and potash,

New York, March jo.-As the Corbett
McGovern fight approaches and news
from both camps is received in Gotham
sporting men in this locality are experienc
ing a change of heart. Only i week ago
the Brooklyn "terror" was a red-hot favor
ite with the wise ones, lut today they are
even money choices.
An offer to bet $,o,ooo at evens on Terry
McGovern against Young Corbett in their
fight at San Francisco next Tuesday night
has been made here. Three well-known
sporting men have pooled their money, it
is said, and ,have more to offer at the same
odds. It is believed the offer will be
quickly taken, and from present indica.
tions Corbett will be the favorite before
the night of the fight. News from Camp
Corbett is most encouraging, and it looks
as if the Denver champion has regstined
his punch. Up to this time the betting has
been to to 7 in favor of McGovern.
After the state bowling tournamlent
which was held in Butte recently that
branch of sport suffered from inertia. Now
things are stirring again. The Pfister al
leys have an individual tournament on and
the old winter league series has been re.
sutmed at the Thornton alleys.
In the list of individual averages at
the Thornton alleys Ellis leads with a
safe margin. Out of 6o games played he
has made a total of z t,6ot pins or an

New York, March 3o.-The Union Boat
club today reinstated C. S. Titus the oars
lman. The club passed a resolution which
recited that there had been an irregularity
in his expulsion and added: That the
said expulsion be rescinded solely on the
ground of such technical irregularity."
President Sitnnot of the club said to
night: " We want to be perfectly just in
