PROTEST BY BONNERS SAY LOU DILLON USED A SULKY WITH BALL-BEARINGS AND A WIND SHIELD. " Y ASSOCIATIED PrsERs. New York, Dec. 29.-Robert E. and Frederick Bonner, sons of the late Robert Bonner, ihave lodged with the secretary of the ~4merican Trotting Registration asso ciation a protest against the offlicial recog nition of the record made by C. K. K. G. Blillings' mare, I.ou Dillon. which, at the (;lenville track at Cleveland last Septem her started to beat the record of a:8 t;, made by Robert Lonner's great mare Maud S. 18 years before. Lou Dillon trotted the mile in a:oS. Maud S. made her record hitched to an old-fashioned, high-wheeled sulky, and was not aided in her performance by any of the contrivances now in use. In their protest the Homiers assert: "First-A wind shield preceded l.ou Dillon: but no wind shield was used in Maud S.'s performancce. "Second-According to our information and belief, Lou Dillon was assisted by a sulky with ball-bearing axles." The protest declares that the sulky used by Maud S. could have been secured from the Bonners for the asking. TO LOSE HIS CLUB BISHOP'S OAKLAND ,ENTERPRISE IS TO BE SHUT DOWN BY THE MUNICIPALITY. Biddy Bishop is likely to lose his Sequoia club at Oakland, and with it the boxing game will be shut out of the towtl. T'his condition has been brought about through the frequency of boxing contests and the fact that it is claimed Bishop has no legitimate club. Mayor Olney has announced that he will 'have the ordinance repealed that per mits boxing contests, and stated his reason for so doing was based upon the fact that the bouts were being fheld too fre quently for the good of the sport. Before the Sequoia entered the field there were two clubs-the West Oakland and the Reliance. Then came Bishop and pulled off the Woods-Reilly match. Pre vious to the match Bishop appeared before the mayor and announced that he had a legitimate club, and was permitted under the ordinance to operate. Now it is alleged that ]tisbiop is an itinerant fight manager and has neither club nor apparatus. Besides this, the debut of the club as a fight institution did not take well. The go was held in the old Dietz opera house, and the next time a permit was issued one of the prin cipals did not show up and toe match fell through. This gave the club another black eye. When Bishop cut in lie matched Reilly and Woods, and was in Woods' corner at the go. For this reason it is claimed that Bishop was running the club for his own scrappers, rather than for any who would meet before the organization. It is claimed that the opera house is used merely when fights are pulled off, and that the Sequoia is not a domestic corporation, as is called for under the ordinance. The Sequoia is the disturbing element, and the mayor announces that although the other clubs are up to requirements, he will have to put a stop to all in order to get at the Sequoia. Bishop's program is to push Woods to the front, and hoped by getting the Se quoia to be able to match him often as his chief drawing card. It is further understood that there is some jealousy existing owing to the fine article of fight Woods and Reilly put up. The San Francisco papers spoke of the go as the best ever pulled off in Oakland, and it is thought this has something to do with the fight against Bishop. Evi dently some of the Reliance or West Oakland people attempted to shut Bishhop out, and the mayor, rather than discrimi nate, will close all. ARTIFICIAL EYES That Mrs. Dr. Frank's artificial eyes are the best is not a matter of hearsay, Hun dreds of eye witnesses testify to the fact that they have had artificial eyes inserted painlessly-eyes that are guaranteed to move and rest naturally in the orbit.

SPORTING NEWSI BIG BATTLE TONIGHT CORBETT AND HANLON ARE BOTH IN GOOD SHAPE, WITH THE CHAMPION A FAVORITE. 6Y ASSOCtATEt t'REtSS. San Francisco, Cal., Dec. ao.-Every thing of a preliminary character has heen settled for the fight tonight between Cur bett and Eddie lanlon, the California aspirant for championship honors. It was annolunced at Corbctt's training quar ters that the Denverite is down to weight and that there is no possibility of him tipping over Ia' pounds at weighing time. lie is pIronounced to be perfectly fit atnd will not have the excutse to oiffer this tite of lack of condition preventintg him squelching I lanilon's atibition, as it did at their irevious meeting. At that time the champion put a low estimate on the ability of the little westerner, slighted his training to such ani extent that he barely pulled out of the encounter with a draw. llanlun is a lad of steady hnIlits andl conseilquently always in fair trim and as he does his training conscientiousoly there are always good re ports from his camp. The selection of (;raney as referee bIrought out some deferred betting anid mtIost of the money was placed at to to 8 with Corbett favorite. Young Corbett and Eddie ilanlon will meet tonight inl San Francisco to lo o battle for the featherweight championlhip of the world, and not since the days when (;eorge Dixon stood as tlte peer of them all has there been such widespread interest msani fested as in this contest. When Corbett defeated McG;overn the first time there were many who looked upon the battle as a mere walk-away for McGovern and the betting was all one sided. Then again when the little Denver ite consented to give Terry another imatch the public considered Corhett's per fortmance as a mere chance proposition and waited for the outcome with misgivings. Since that second defeat Corbett has held the championship with all the hon ors that go with it, and has been abile to defend it as a champion should. In Eddie lianlon. Cortwett will meet the most dangerous antagonist in the ring to day. This fact has been emphasized by the careful preparations of the champion for the match. There is now no doubt in the minds of the ptddic that Corbett will make the weight, and there will be no excuse in case of defeat either for Hanlon or Corbett. The champion is the favorite in the bet ting at to to 8, and there is a good-sized bunch of money wagered on the contest. ('orbett's manager has taken all the Hanlon money lie could secure and if Hallnlon suc ceeds in wresting the championship from the chamlpion he will also cut a good-sized slice out of his bank account. (Cobhett, as has been stated before, is the legitimate betting proposition and will be rconsidered as such bIy the followers of the game in Butte. So far there have been few wagers laid on the result, but ('orbett btands favorite in the estinoaion of most of those who keel) their eye on the game.

Kid Tredericks has again stepped into the ring and has been heard from in Bluf- I falo. -r Fredericks fought a 1s-round draw'withi ('y Flynn at a private match in Buffalo. The men entered the ring at 137 pounds. Frederick is one of t4ie luckiest lighters in the business. lie has either won his battles on knockouts, or allowed the other fellow to get no better than a draw. So far he has but one defeat to his credit, that by Herrera, when the Mexican put the Kid away in three rounds in May of this year. GIVE CLUB A NAME "OLYMPIC ATILETIC CLUB" CHOSEN * BY LOCAL ORGANIZATION-TO MEET. AGAIN TOMORROW. "Olympic Athletic Club." That is a name which promises to become "famous throughout the United States as being the appellation signifying the finest insti tution of its kind in the Northwest. At a meeting of the board of stewards of the new organization last night in the Butte Business college chapel, it was de cided.to give the above name to the asso ciation for which the foundation was laid a week or more ago. At the previous meeting a president and ii stewards were selected and the meet ing last night was the first held by that body to consider a name and arrange the constitution and by-laws for adoption when the club meets as a whole. President A. J. Davis presided last night, and much business was transacted, among which was tile question of quarters - for the cluib. A committee consisting of P. C. Gillis and I. Kreuger was appointed by the chair to look into the matter and report back to the next meeting, to be held tomorrow night at the business college. A set of by-laws was ordered engrossed and presented to the next meeting for adoption. The matter of incorporating the club was referred to C. P. Connolly, an en thusiastic legal member, who will look up the law and arrange for this feature of the club, which will be completed at the earli est convenience. The report of the stewards showed that there were a22 charter members and 75 applications for membership. It was de cided to make the initiation fee $mo and the dues $a montdly. The applications will? not be acted upon until after the organiza tion is completed and the club Is ready for entering upon the work outlined in its first accepted principles. All members are enthusiastic over the bright prospects of the organization and if the enthusiasm holds out the club will be spreading its fame throughout the coun try within a few months. It has been about definitely decided to place Dune McDonald at the head of the institution as athletic instructor. IT MAY BE SHORT HERRERA MUST WALK INTO NEARY AND WIN QUICKLY TO WIN AT ALL. Although C(tarlie Neary is a larger man thian Ilerrera, the Mexican should have no tliuble in defeatingi the Milwaukee lad. I:i Neary's fight with Kid Broad he al liwed the latter to put It all over hillm for t'ree rounds, which seems to ibe Broad's I nit, and then SNary walked in and won iu a walk. As Ilerrera has a puinh call hi of putting ally of the light ones to the b.lil anld also possesses as much .ccince as It h,:id in the boxing game, 'lie ought to Ii able to land the punc.h int the early .:,.tes tif the game .ttand take the monei'y. Ilerrera's right hand is not what he w thl wish it to he. bit lie tw ill chance it on a knockout. It is lIcrrera' illention te tly for the knockoolt ill the first rotndil al lnot wait for the tight to drag alomg, f, r fear of waiting too lung. If he can get in his work early in the glue hlie will win, otherwise there is a chlance of Neary beingl able to hold the thixsicanl down. Nothing woutl please the Butte contin gent more than to have the little birown bly di tlc trick in a round. Fronm the enthu si.istic welcomle extended Ilerrera while hire Sunday it was demonstrated that lhe Ivtl manyIII warm frietlds who hope to see him again the drawing card in Montana's ig:hting circles. SPORTGOSSIP I)tring Jack Munroe's recent stay in lltilc lie paid a visit to the Inter Mountain office. About the same time as Jack ar riled Billy lush, the stereotyper, caine into the editorial rooms. lush is a aoo pounder and will stack up well in any llbunch of athletes and has an arml like a shouldtler of meat. Munroe began sizing tip the man who mnakes the mats for the daily Inter Moun tain and asked who he was. "This is the unknown," said the assist anlt foreman of tile complliosinlg rooml. Munroe took a good look at the stereo tIper and announcllced that he had dtrolppedl in to let the sporting editor know that he coild lint appear against the mlant selected by sonicme of the local sports for the exhibli tion Christmas night. O)n the otheir hand, Billy thought lie was up against a hot gamle for keeps alind hurried to annlounce that Ihe was not in the scrapping Ibusiness. Munroe drew a sigh of relief and said he would call again when the sporting mtan was in. "That fellow looked like the side of a house and as vicious as a bulldog," said Jack that night at the Broadway. I thought if I had to put him away it would take an axe to do it. Of course, I did not know who they had picked out for mtie. and as I had been informed that they had a man who would attemllpt to knock site out as soonl as we faced ealis other iin a friendly bout. 1 thought the big fellow tould conime about as near doing it as any one if he got a chance." All the boys about town are having a good laugh over the incident. L,anky Blob Fitzsiimons is having a Iard time rehearsing for his allppearance in "Peck and Ilis Mother-in- Law." I.t) hits, three songs to sing---"A I'ipe DIream," "if I (nily flad the Dough Like Mr. Morgan" andl "ledelia." While rehearsing the othr day olob heard a rap on the door anil on opening it was conlfronted Iby a inegro, who announlcedl that ali OctIoroni troupe was rehearsing for a minstrel bhow in the next room and could not proceed until the noise in lilbi's room ceased. Fit. toork the count on the song and adjourtncd ti next day, when he tried it on the roof of his flat, where the police could not iter fire. Fitz is said to be a star at managing a mother-in-law, but when it colmes to punching holes in a song Fitz has to pull down his forfeit money before it is cov cred. Jim Jeffries will not fight a negro, but lie does not draw the color line in referee w·ork, and his latest stunt is refreshing a champion cakewalk at Madison Square (,:rden Christmas night. There was some (.hjectiiin to the chanlpion, owing to the f:rt that he drew the color line on Jack Johnson, ibut the W asilingtonsl andI Jack ;,IIns were in the majority, anll Jeff won. J, ff took along a formidable battery in the shape of Tom Sharkey, Terry MciGovern, Jim Corbett and Frank Erne, so there was i, one with a rarer who cared to dispute the decisions of the champion. The proposed match between Harry Foley and Jim Scanlan, which was to have taken place before the Reliance club, ()Ok. lind, January 5, has been called off. Foley anlted Scanlan to make 165 pounds, and the latter claims all he can do is 170. 'I here is a probability that Joe Millet, a comer, will meet Scanlan before the Colina club in the near future. One of the features of the All-Cali fornia football game was the playing of Nickofer Shouchuk, the Eskimo, center fr the Carlisle Indians. Nickofer is one of the best natured fellows imaginable, a.:d takes to football like a duck takes t., water. I there is anytihng an Indian likes it is the test of skill between men. lie in l, rits this spirit from his ancestors, who s.ought the most strenuous sports that could be imagined While in the savage state. 'his taste for thrilling experiences, wherein the muscle and endurance is up permost, extends to the remotest tribes of the United States, and no sooner does an Indian enter school than he wants to show his prowess, and as football is more to his liking than anything else, he natur ally plunges into the game with such zeal as was never manifested by his white brother. "I could not, to save my life, say whether the sulky Lou Dillon pulled in 2:o5 over the Cleveland track to heat Maud S.'s record .had ball bearing hubs or not," says Millard Sanders, the driver of the noted Billings mare, when asked concerning the report that the 'heirs of the iBdnoner estate intended to protest the record claimed by Lou Dillon. "I do know no wind shield was used and that I am willing to bet $5,ooo that Lou l)illon can pull that same sulky, which, by the way, weighed 5s pounds-ia more than Maud S.'s sulky--in less than a:o5. "Members of the Bonner estate have for years offered $5,ooo for any driver that would break Maud S.'s record.
