Downey Out of Condition
Downey was fat and out of condi?
tion and was tired when the wearisome
mis-up came to an end. Wilson
?coked to be in fine shape and it was
prt'bebly this fact that enabled him to
withstand some of the hard right wal?
lops that bis opponent put over in the
'last five rounds. The champion
seemed contented to stall along and it
was a question whether he lacked the
slightest semblance of real ability or
?imply didn't want to try.
In the best bout on the program,
Johnny Buff, flyweight champion, suc?
cessfully defended his title against
Indian Russell. He knocked Russell
out in the fifth round after a two
fisted tussle that had the crowd on its
feet from start to finish.
In the first preliminarv, Willie Spen
eer, of tha East Side defeated Solly
Epstein, of Indiana, in eight rounds,
wcile in the second Dick Griffin, of
Texas, otrtpofnted Matty Herbert, of

staggered him with hard rights to the
jaw. In the second round it looked as
though Solly was due for a nap, and on
one occasion he was knocked half
through the ropes when Wilson caught !
him flush on the point of the jaw with '
an uppercut that started somewhere
near the floor and went straight to the '?
mark. Epstein, however, hung on and
weathered the gale and came back I
strong in the third and fourth sessions. ?
Both Display Grit
Both men took a lot of punishment
in these rounds, but they were in such
splendid physical condition that they
could stand it.
In the fifth round Spencsr walloped
Solly all over the ring, and when tho
bell rang the Western scrapper steered
a groggy course for his corner. The
crowd begged SpencerVto put over the
skep producer, and V'iilie tried so hard
that an one time he fell from his own
exertions. j
The bout was refereed by Phil Ear
hart, who had a tough time keeping
clear of the wild swings that the scrap?
pers hurled about promiscuously. The
crowd gave the victory to Spencer.
He won by a comfortable margin.
There seemed to be more interest
taken in the battle between Mike Mc
Tigue and Panama Joe Gans, the colored
star, than there was in the main event.
This was something of a grudge affair,
as both boxers and their managers
have been saying unkind things for
months. There was a lot of lively
betting on this scrap, the backers of
Gans covering every cent of McTigue
cash that made its appearance. Early
it* the game the wagers were made at
even money, but by the time the men
climbed into the ring Gan3 was ruling
a 2 to 1 favorite.
The second engagement on the pro?
gram brought together Matt;.* Herbert,
of New York, and Dick Griffin, of
Texas. Jimmv De Forest was the third
man in the ring. Humphries, the
golden-voiced contralto, told the crowd
that both men weighed 125 pounds.
They were slated to go eight rounds.
Fiddling and Shimmying
The boys fiddled and shimmied about
the ring in the first round until the
crowd howled for them to get together.
There wasn't a real blow struck until '?
the second round, when Griffin laid |
Herbert flat on his back with a neat
paste on the point of the jaw. Matty
hit about the same sp<>t where
90,000 thousand persons saw Georges
Carpentier counted out on July 2.
Matty didn't stay down, however.
Jimmy De Forest hadn't started to
count before he was up and mixing it
with the Texan.
Griffin carried the fight to Herbert
throughout, but his blows did not ap?
pear to bother the New Yorker to any
freat extent. Dick kept boring in.
ut slowed up considerably in the
sixth round, when Matty landed sev?
eral solid lefts to the jaw. In this
session Matty brought the blood trick?
ling from Griffin's nose, but the latter
retaliated by opening up Matty's lower
lip. It was Griflin's fight by a slight
Johnny Buff, flyweight champion, en?
tered the ring and got a great hand.
He was followed a moment later by
Indian Russell, of Harrisburg, Pa., chal?
lenger for the title. The weights were
announced as 114% for Buff and 109V.
for Russell. The title holder looked to
be in fine shape. The little fellows
wasted no time in getting together. The
clang of the first bell had not died away
before they were battling viciously.
Russell was a willing challenger, but he
found himself up against a crafty and
experienced ring general.
Buff's Rapid Left
The Harrisburg battler kept boring
in, but ho was a mark for Buff'.-t rapid
fire left, which landed almost every
time it was started. In the second
round the flyweight king shook the
challenger to his heels with fierce rights
and lefts to the jaw. He landed three
blows to every one put over by the
The third round was a slam-bang af?
fair, with Johnny doing most of the J
slamming. He could hit the Indian at j
will, and the latter seemed willing to ?
take- it in order to get near enough to j
put over one solid smash.
In the fifth round Johnny toppled the j
Indian with a hard left to the jaw. The ?
challenger took the count of eight and i
then staggered to his feet, only to be I
met by a storm of swings that sent him j
down again. This time he was in such ?
bad shape that Referee De Forest
stopped the bout.
The end came after two minutes and
ten seconds of fighting in the fifth
round. Russell was completely out?
classed and never had a chanco to grab
tho title. <
The Wilson-Downey disturbance was
put on immediately after Buff had
disposed of Russell.
The, challenger was the first to enter
the ring, climbing through the ropes
at 4:15. A broad piece of adhesive
tape was pasted across the bridge of
his nose to protect the cut which j
Bryan received in the Cleveland battle. ?
Wilson made h?3 ^npeararce ?> few sec- ;
onds later, but didn't receive any over- ,
whelming ovation. Downey drew most i
The first thing that Wilson did was j
to inspect Downey's bandages. The two i
wasted no pleasantries, the champion j
giving the challenger a glare and pass- ]
ing immediately over to his own corner.
Downey wore a bathrobe of toweling,
while the champion sported a green
and brown dressing gown.
Wilson's weight was announced as 159 !
and Downey's as 154. The- match w.-ts |

?N THE last five rounds of the fight in Jersey City yesterday. Downey directed his attack to
Wilson's body and landed a number of blows to the midsection that raised red welts over
the champion's ribs. One of these blows landed with such force that it carried the title
holder half way through the ropes, as shown in this picture. He would have fallen out of the
ring if the challenger from Columbus had not caught him and pulled him back to safety.

Regatta H Dominated by
Crews of Quaker City
Organizations; Kelly Star
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. ?^Philadel?
phia oarsmen won fifteen of the eigh- ,
teen races in the Middle Stales Asso?
ciation's thirtieth annual regatta on
the Schuylkili River to-day,
The races, which were close, wera .
rowed over a one-mile straightaway
course under" ideal conditions, before \
hundreds of enthusiasts.
The double victory scored by the
Potomac eight, of Washington, was the
i feature of the day. This crew, made j
up of high school boys, defeated the
New York Athletic Club by nearly two
lengths in the intermediate eight
oared shell contest and in the senior
event two hours later, by a wanderul
spurt in the last fifty yards, won from
the Union Boat Club of New York by
six feet.
The youngsters are finishing their
f first year's rowing. The time for the
! intermediate was 5:03 4-5, and for '.he
? senior 5:04.
In the latter event the Union crew
: entered freslv, having competed in no
1 other race. The New York Athletic
Club crew finished third. For two
! thirds of a mile the three crews were
close together, the Potomac3 having a
, slight advantage, with Union second
and the New York A. C. half a ?length
i in the rear.
In the last quarter Union began to
shoot ahead, gaining a quarter of a
length on the Potomacs. The Wash
ingtonians rallied, however, raised
: their stroke and by a pretty effort
i forged into the lead just at the finish.
The Metropolitan Boat Club of New
j York won the junior doubles race.
Paul Costello, of Vesper, outclassed
; W. E. Garrett Gilmore in the cham?
pionship singles race, winning by ten
lengths in 5:53 1-5. Jack Kelly, Vesper's
, famous crew man, stroked the winning
' senior double, senior four-oared gig
and senior quadruple scul?3 crews.

Smith, of Geveland, Sets
Extra Base Hit Record
CLEVELAND, Sept. 5.?Elmer Smith,
' Cleveland right fielder, has established
a new major league batting record.
: Starting yesterday at Detroit Smith
i made seven consecutive extra base hits
for a total of twenty-two bases, and
was robbed of another when Williams
made a sensational catch of his sacri?
fice fly in to-day's afternoon game with
St. Louis. His batting accounted for
twelve runs.
I Four cf Smith's hita were home runs,
three coming in succession. The others
were doubles, one of which barely
missed clearing the field wall. In ad?
dition, Smith received four bases on
balls, three being intentional. His bat?
ting average to-day was perfect.

At Larchmont
Nautilus Wins With Bor?
rowed Stick; Fleet of 63
Out in Spankinsr Weather
?Larchmont luck was very much in evi?
dence to-day or. Long I.land Sound.
The popular club held its annual fall
regatta with a fleet of sixty-tbrr
yachts coming to the starting ?in* oS*
Larchmont Breakwater. When Howell
C. Perrin, chairman of the race commit?
tee, set the course signals there w^s
blowing an east, northeast breeze that
was the best racing wind of the sum?
mer. It was of a good twenty knot in
strength, and as it came the committee
was able to pick out splendid courses
for all the craft.
The larger divisions had a triangular
race of twenty miles. It was a good
stiff beat to Greenwich Point for the
first leg. Then came a reach across the
Sound to Oak Neck for the second leg,
followed by a run home. Interest cen?
tered in the race among the fifty-footers
of the New York Yacht Club. In the
class the winner was Istalena III. the
property of G. F. Pynchon. The thirty
nine-footers of the Larchmont Yacht
Club covered the same coarse, the win?
ner being Gray Dawn.
Nautilus Wins With Borrowed Mat*
An indication, of the spirit of Long
Island Sound yachting was seen in tho
thirty-foot class of the New York
Yacht Club. On Saturday M. E. Hat
field's Nautilus lost her mast in the
race of the Se3wanhaka-Corinthir.*!
Yacht Club. To-day she appeared here
with a new srick which had been bor?
rowed from Banzai, the property of
Edmund Land, a thirty-footer not in
commission this summer. With the
new stick and a rig not setting the
best Nautilus won in the division.
Regardless of the fact that the wind
?was kicking up whitecaps all over the
Sound practically all of the yachts
finished without any accidents. The
only one of importance to be reported
was in the third division of the handi?
cap class, in which Rascal, the prop
? erty of E. Jacobson. was dismasted. In
the division the winner on both actual
and corrected time was Robin Hood IIT.
The Victory class and the U class
of sloops filled in a nice manner. In
the former the winner was Mongolia,
| the property of H. M. Curtis. L. Her?
zoges Top led home the Class U sloops
and a!so won on corrected time. In tho
popular Star class the winner was Irex.
Young T. J. McCahill jr. again was the
wjjiner in the Southampton one-design
class in his Liris.

Perfect Conditions Make
the Sea Gate-Bensonhurst
Contests Fair Boat Tests
Perfect weather conditions were
given to lower bay yachtsmen for the
annual regatta of the Atlantic Yacht
: Club yesterday. The wind was east
southeatst and fresh, with enough
strength to kick up a decided sea in
midchannel. The course chosen by
the regatta committee, made up of
, Ira L. Beebe jr.. chairman; Rear Com?
modore Edmund Land and Richard
Rummell, gave the craft a reach from
the starting line off Sea Gate to a
mark off Bensonhurst, a run across
the channel to Craven Shoals and a
stiff beat home.
The course was covered twice. In?
terest centered principally in the race
for the Victory Class. At the end of
the first round, Bois de Belleau, the
property of Commodore Francis R.
Mayer, was leading by 22 seconds. The
times taken of the Victory yachts wero
Bois de Belleau, 12:08:46; Nieuport,
12:09:08, and Cantigny. 12:10:50. On
the second time around the positions of
the craft were unaltered. Bois de Bel?
leau winning by 55 seconds.
In the handicap class, first division,
the winner was Arethusa. Sh'- was the
only craft to finish. Kewpie was the
only knockabout to complete the
course In the third division of the
handicap class the, winner was Bug II,
the property of H. Rottammer, who,
incidentally, was taken to a hospital
