MUNROE A MYSTERY fNOBODY KNOWS WHAT THE BI0 . HEAVYWEIGHT FROM BUTTE CAN DO JUST YET. Jbhn Herts, manager of Benny Yanter, who was recently defeated by Eddie Hanlon at San Francisco, has returned from the coast and still claims, as he did immediately after the contest, that Yanger was entitled to a draw, says George Slier. To make good his claim, he says that such good judges of fighting as Eddie Graney, Jim Coffroth, manager of the Yosemite club, Timekeeper George Harting and Morris Levy, manager of the Hayes Valley club, under whose aus pices the battle was held, were loud in their denunciation of the referee's de cision. "Benny," said Hertz, "had all the bet ter of the fighting during the first 14 rounds, was worsted in the s5th, and in the last minute of the aoth and held his own in the sessions between those rounds. Referee Smith acknowledged that before hte left the hall, but could not explain why he had decided in favor of Hanlon." Jack Munroe is as much a pugilistic mystery as ever. His first and only live match arranged since he became known as a "pug" was that with Jack McCor mick, which was slated for issue at the Washington Sporting club of Philadel phia last Monday night week, but, un fortunately for the fght fans and those desirous to learn just how good or how poor a fighter Munroe is, the contest did not take place because of poor attendance. If there was one match that had the ear marks of drawing big box office receipts it was that between tnese two big "Jacks." It appears, however, the recent bturlesque bout between Fits and Cough lit, which took place under the auspices of the same organization, killed that be tween Munioe and McCormick. The lat ter's ability as a fighter is well-known in the East, and, as Munroe did not show any class in his various exhibitions, the suffering public passed the bout up. Despite the fact that the match did not draw a paying crowd, it would have been a corker from a rough-house standpoint, for, as neither of the men is overbur dened with science, the bout would have resolved itself into a slugging match. Terry McGovern, once the kingpin of all the, featherweights, after lying on the shelf of idleness for several months, took a hand in the game in Philadelphia re cently against one Billy Willis, and, not only failed to stop him in six rounds, the limit, but broke his fighting tools, which will keep 'him out of the running for some time. There was a time-and not so long ago-that Terry could clean up a ring ifull of Willis', but it appears his knack of trimming aspiring featherweights in short order was taken from him when he went down to defeat before Young Corbett. The little ex-champion bad a number of interesting matches booked for the fall and his mishap is to be deplored. He had hopes of winning enough fights within the next three months to force Young Corbett into giving him another chance to regain the championship, which now, it seems, is improbable. Sam Harris, who still looks after Mc Govern's interests, nas Terry's brother Hughey ln tow, and is making efforts to secure st match for hiin against Frankie Neil, the bantamweight champion. Young McGovern has been in the fighting game nearly two years, cut as yet he has not shown championship caliber. He is still in his "teenq" and may yet blossom out as did Terry.

But he is going to use Hank Griffin, the Pacific coast heavyweight, as a sparring partner while training for his fight with George Gardner. Consistency, thou art a paste jewel on the frontispiece of some boxers. The boxing season will open at Detroit, Mich,, tomorrow, when Harry Forbes, the ex-bantamweight champion, and Tommy Feltz, his most strenuous rival, will do a star stunt of so rounds at 8S pounds. The fight will be held under the auspices of the Metropolitan Athletic club. The swollen condition of McGovern's hand has prevented an examination under the X-rays. So far the doctors have been unable to say whether any bones are broken or not. Should the examination show that it is only a sprain, McGovern will continue his road work, and be ready to enter the ring with Jimmy Briggs In Boston on October so. All the bowling clubs are getting busy, and in a few weeks the big tournaments will be under way. Never before in the history of the sport has there been so much interest shown. The dates for the college baseball games at the St. Louis Fair are fronm June so to as, and for football from November at to a6, 1904. The question is often asked: "Which league has the strongest pitching staff the National or American ?" While a hard matter to decide, if averages are a good criterion, then the palm must be awarded to the American. As a sample: "Cozy" Dolan batted at a .311 gait in the Na tional, whiile he could do but .277 in the Amer ican. In order to show its appreciation for all who have at any time taken active part in defending the America's cup, since the days of the Puritan, the New York Yacht club will tender to them a reception on October S at the clubhouse. It will be quite a large gathering and a proud mo ment for all who have been instrumental in keeping the "mug" here. Having held the featherweight cham pionship of th ( German army for three years, Gus Klein thinks he is fitted to go up against the top-notchers here, He says he has $5oo to post that he can best either Burns, Marto or Terry McGovern. He is even ready to take a fall out of the real champion, Young Corbett. This sounds well. Pugilists as a rule do not underrate their services, but they all will take off their hats to Jabez White, the English lightweight champion.

Honolulu, Oct. r3.-Very little interest is being taken in the present political cant paign in Kauaei county, where the home rule ticket has been withdrawn, its chance of success being considered hopeless.

A suit has been brought in the federal court by G. O. McFarland against the State Savings bank, Lulu F. Largey, T. M. Hodgens, Edward Donlan and the Missoula Lumber company, to recover I,ooo shares of stock in the Largey lumber company, valued at $25,ooo, and for other things. McFarland asks the court to appoint a receiver for the I.argey Lumber company; wants Hodgens restrained from interfering with the business of the company in any way, and wants an order from the court allowing him to examine all the books and papers of the company. McFarland alleges that he organized the Largey Lumber company in partner ship with Mrs. L.argey, and became its general manager, and that his agreement with Mrs, I.argey was that he was to have half of the stock and to pay for it out of the proceeds of the business. He adds to this that he was induced to transfer lis rights to the stock to the State Savings bank to secure a loan which the bank made to' Mrs. I.argey, and that he was afterwards ousted from his position and paid nothing for his services. lie says the capital stock of the lumber company is worth $50,ooo, and that he is entitled to 'half; also to a salary for the time he was general manager of the com pany. lie alleges that Donlan succeeded him as nmanager and is paid $6oo a month. McFarland asks that his alleged agree. ment with Mrs. Largey be carried out. I am going to be a heavy villain or lead ing lady. I am not a bit stuck on these costume plays, They don't look good to me, and problem play is another one that I will have to pass up. I suppose they will hand me an easy ofre, where all' I will ha've to do is to drop the villain out of a sixth-story window, grab the heroine and cry 'Me chee-ild!t' Now, something like that would fit me like a glove, don't you think so?" Mique Fisher denies that he is nego tiating with Tacoma parties to have the franchise in the Pacific Coast league trans ferred from Sacramento to Tacoma. He went over to Tacoma one day last week to size up the town. He may have talked with some baseball enthusiasts there, but he mentions no names, and is emphatic hfi his declaration that there is no proposition now being considered to drop Sacramento and take up Tacoma for next year. "You may say this for me, however," he said. "Sacramento cannot support a team in the Pacific league when salaries are as high as they are this year. I have been drilling all year just to give a lot of ball players a good time. What do I get out of it? Nothing. "Tacoma looks mighty good to me, for I believe it is a good ball town. But I could not go there if I wanted to, without the consent of the league. The transfer ring of a franchise is something that can be done only by the league, and as the annual meeting does not take place until after the end of this month there is noth ing on now. "I have been quoted a number of times as saying that unless the people of Sacra mento patronized my team 'better I would abandon the town and take up Tacoma. I have never made such a statement, but I did say that with the patronage I have been getting this year Sacramento does not deserve league ball. "If anyone wants to get in Sacramentoj he is welcome to do so, and he can have Fisher's blessing. I ,will have to go to work in the shops of the Southern Pacific this winter to make a living, but I have been giving the ball players a good time all summer." "Syracuse" Tommy Ryan, middleweight champion of the world and boxing In structor of the Missouri Athletic club, and Zachary Tinker, the power behind the throne in the same club, held a conference reently,. the result of which will be the departure of Ryan from the new athletic institution. Ryan and Secretary Gens linger of the organization have been at outs since the opening of the new club. Ryan claims that the position he holds was not what it was represented to him and that he has met with constant friction from Mr. Genslinger since his arrival to take charge of affairs. Ryan will open a boxing school of his own, with Frankie McHugh as a side partner, and the Mis souri Athletic club is scouring the woods in search of a new boxing instructor, -.n Jordan, the E'nglish fpathe A ht champion, and Benny 'anger, the "Tipton Slasher" of Chicago, have been practically matched for so rounds at za6 gl4nds be fore the Hayes Valley Athletic eitb of San Francisco, in the first week of December. Charley Horan, looking after the interests of Jordan in this country, and Jbhn Hartz of Chicago made the arrangements. The only hitch iq the match at present is the $5oo expense money which Jordan insists he be allowed. TROOPS CHARGE MOB DISTURBANCES OVER TRAN6FERRAL OF ARMENIAN CHURCH PROP ERTY TO CZAR'S MEN.

CITY'S CHANCES TO GET COPY OF THE TAX ROLL County Clerk Has Turned Them Over to County Treasurer and Is No Longer Responsible for Them. Tax receipts and notices are being drawn up i3 the county treasurer's office .t present from the county tax roll. It will take four or fi've weeks to complete the work. and the clerks are working on the roll from 4 o'clock in the morning to 33 at night. Since the county recorder has turned the roll over to the treasurer, it is bIe lieved by some people that the mandlamus proceedings brought in the supreme court by the city to conmpel him to furnish a copy of the city tax roll will come to nothing, as he has thus ceased to be the custodian of the roll. 'IThe transfer of the roll to the treas urer seems to have increased the city's quandary, for there is no law requiring the treasurer to copy the roll for the city, and if the latter undertakes to make a copy for itself its clerks will have to work from midnight till morning, the roll being accessible to them only during that time and there being no duplicate roll this year.
