Boxers That Have Held More Than One Championship. Many boxers have held more than one cliampionship. Fltzsimmons in his career was the possessor of three titles?middle weight. heavyweight and light heavyweight ?but it is questionable if any fighter has heretofore held two championships simul taneously. Therefore. Joseph Gans, the holder of the welter and lightweight titles. Is entitled to unusual consideration. He captured the lightweight honors from Frank Erne at Fort Krle on May 12. IIKRS. and he won the welterweight title from Mike "Twin" Sullivan in San Francisco recently. In doing this, Gans has shown himself to be one of the most remarkable boxers of the age. He won the lightweight title from Erne at 136 at 7 o'clock in the evening, which weight was dictated by the champion, but ?which suited Gans very well, although there is no doubt that Erne had much the better of the weight on the night of the bout. \\ hen Gans met Sullivan fur the welter weight title he was asked to do 142 pounds at 3 p.m., and once again the cham pion had. all the better of the conditions regarding avoirdupois. Gans weighed l?are ly 14<> pounds stripped and trained down he would have have scaled about 135, which is his best weight. The only singular thing about Gans is the insistence of some persons in the claim that he is not the lightweight champion, because he does not weigh 133 pounds at the ringside, which, it is alleged, is the limit for championship bouts In that divi sion. But ?when pinned to a request for information as to where the authorltv comes from to make 133 pounds at the ringside the lightweight liml' 'he support ers of the claim cieuend on the assertion that it is the limit and that no one can win the championship excent at that weight. If that Is really the case, then there 7" V y on" ''animate lightweight champion from the time of McAuliffe to the present.

Insists that Gans has no m?etlnt0thhe tltle" blU ls backward In meeting the negro on the ground that he J.? ' , lat ^?lson should presume > ""f?? t0 dictate to the champion is oilnciilt to explain. All the preceding: champions dictated the weight at which they would tight, and there is no reason why Garis should not do the same. The al leged championship weights of 116 for bantam. 122 feather. 133 light, 14.', welter and IrvH middle?all nt ringside, were never suggested by those in a position to speak authoritative y. but cropped up here and there from time to time. It would lie an excellent thing if the ' weights were enforced, but there is no one to enforce them, the boxers having no as sociation with a governing body. There fore. it is foolishly unjust to say to Gans that he must live up to certain alleged rules that never have been observed by his predecessors in the championship. Gans can tight strongly at 135 pounds, and any one who desires to meet him for the title should not hesitate to accept a match at those figures. He would be fool ish to listen to the clamor about 133 pounds ringside, as, while he probably can make the weight, he would weaken himself and thus not be able to fight at his best. When in condition and trying to do his best. Cans is the most formidable Uoxer in the world at 13y to 140 pounds. With a khockout punch in each hand, a puzzling I defense and a courage that always sus tains him, he can undoubtedly beat any man in the world within eight pounds of his weight He is the coolest, craftiest fighter In the ring, and the jolts he hands to his opponents are very' effective. Edward Hanlon. tlie San Francisco light weight, lias reconsidered his determination to quit the ring as his health Is improv ing rapidly. He intends to take a rest and then re-en ter tlie ring. When he fought Herman he was suffering from catarrh. It bothered him badly, but he is now under the care of two specialists and is rounding to form. I have certainly been a hard-luck fight-^| er," said Hanlon recently. "You see, 1 I lost the first fight with Corbett when I j really licked him. Just think what it would | iiave meant to me if I had won that light, j I would have been champion of the world at seventeen. My showing was so good that eastern theatrical men offered me Sl.OtK) a week and a three months' con tract. I don't know why I did not accept that offer. Perhaps I was badly handled. At any rate, that was not my only piece of hard luck. In my tight with Nelson I also ?had a poor break. Just when I was fight ing hard my second tossed the towel into the ring.

I can see where we ruu second to night.' Had I been anything like myselt 1 would have won. "I never felt better in all my life. I was coming fast until I Ion to Herman. This was through sicKness, however. When I thoroughly recuperate I will get back into the game, and I am going right out after ti.e best men in the business."

Barry then decided to take a course in foot ball at the Northwesteri University. Last fall he played fullbac* for Northwestern for more than a monti and made a brilliant record. Just on th: eve of the big games It Was discovered that Barry, the fullback, was Dave Barry the pugilist. He was disqualified as a pro fessional. His means of earning a liveli hood gone, Barry left college and then h? resumed his former occupation. * * * The death is announced of Joe Vickera the old-time British fighter, and later wel known a3s the maker of portrait watches Vlckers was a game and skillful fighter and In lSKi he frequently challenged all England at 7 stone 8 pounds.

THE INCOMPARABLE W THE CAR FOR SERVICE. WHITE RELIABILITY. The silent, swift and sturdy White steam car starts on its sixth year of successful service with a sweeping victory in an im portant competition. The Los Angeles-San Diego endurance contest, held January 25th-26th, was won by a White steamer, carrying five passengers and 150 pounds of baggage. The winning White, driven by Charles A. Hawkins, made a perfect score ?1,000 points?and consumed but seventeen gallons of gasoline on the 180-mile mountainous journey. Four other Whites par ticipated and all of them received first-class certificates. Three of these were driven by private owners, who lost but one, two and three minutes, respectively. The results of the above competition, except for differences in dates and places, read much like the summaries of every other reliability trial which has been held, starting with the New York-Rochester run of 1901. In other words. White cars are consistent winners where reliability and serviceability are the standards of comparison. As regards touring, the records show that each year the longest, the hardest and the most interesting tours are made by owners of- White steamers. Owing to our unequaled manufacturing facilities, we can make prompt deliveries of the Model "F" White steam cars with no less than eight different styles of bodies.

Special Dispatch to The Star. NEW YORK, February 10.?"If Sysonby is not a better horse this year than ever hifore I will be the worst fooled man in America." This declaration was made this week by one of the best trainers in the country, a man who lias seen the Keene champion al most every day during the winter, and has watched him closer than a mother does her first baby. "I have kept my eve on that fellow," he said, "because he already has knocked me out of many big stakes, and I have been hoping that I could even up the account the coming season. But there Isn't a chance? not a chance in a million. Sysonby today is the grandest specimen of a race horse I ever have seen, and when he strips for the races next summer all the other horses might as well stay in their stalls. "Today Sysonby weighs at least 400 pounds more than he did when he was re tired last year. At least that's the way he looks to me. And it isn't 400 pounds of flabby flesh, either, let me tell you that. It's 400 pounds of good, had flesh and mus cle that Is distributed where it belongs. "Jimmy Howe has wintered Sysonby in the only rational way to take care of a horse. He has avoided the mistake made by some trainers for millionaires of hous ing their horses in overheated stables and treating them as if they were hot-house plants. Rowe has recognized the fact that Sysonby Is a horse, and that nature never Intended that a horse should be a parlor ornament. Every day this winter Sysonby hat been out In the open. In a big paddock all by himself lie has romped and played and grown stout and lusty. Promise of Blair Athol. That Roseben's three-year-old full broth er, Blair Athol, Is a horse of some promise Is evidenced by the fact that Maurice Hay man has put him in the Flight staKes for next fall. Hay man made the nomination on the recommenda'lon of David Watkins, a man who knows pretty well what to do with a horse. Blair Athol is a fine look ing colt. He was developed by Bud May for Walter Scheftel, and Scheftel took a chance in the Saratoga Special on him. The colt did not win the Special, but he took a brace alter the Saratoga meeting and landed a good race and a good bet for his owner and his owner's friends at Sheepshead Bay. He looks something like Ills brother and he has plenty of speed. If Blair Atliol is a horse of the Roseben kind -he will improve with age. Roseben, It will be recalled, did not race as a two-year old. He was so big and bulky Enoch Wlsh ard did not want to take chances with him. Horses of Rosebon's heft break down easily when raced too young. It was not until the fall of his three-year-old season that Rose ben got out of the maiden class. Roseben also Is in the Flight, and it is safe to figure that he will do his running this year in seven furlong races of that sort. Why he was put In the mile and a quarter handicaps is not clear. It was demon sirated last summer by his easy defeat by Molly Brant tiliat Roseben was no distance horse. He was unable to carry his speed one mile even. Training a sprinter like Roseben for distance races is a bad busi ness; It Is likely to deprive him of the speed he needs to win within bis distance. Odom May Bide Again. George Odom may find his way back to the saddle during the coming season of racing. The young man from Georgia, who announced his retirement a year ago and started In as owner and trainer on his own account, has about reconsidered his deter mination to quit the ranks of saddle artists, and is thinking seriously of training down to 115 or 118 pounds In order to place him self in position -to make a contract with one of the more prominent metropolitan stables to ride in stake and handicap events during the season of 1906. Odom Is satisfied that he can never again reach even moderately light weight. It was his Increasing avordupols that induced him to retire last year. He does know, however, that there Is always a mount In a stake race for Jockeys of his caliber. No better rider has been seen in the east during the past ten years than George Odom, nor has a boy ever ridden in America who enjoyed more fully the confidence of horsemen and racegoers alike. His record when he re tired was absolutely without blemish. Odom could, without much trouble.- reduce to 115 or 118 pounds, a weight that would allow him to take part In raccs like the Brook lyn, Suburban, Brighton and Saratoga han dicaps, the Futurity and the great weight for ages events, in addition to minor fix tures and overnight handicaps. Odom's String'. At present Odom is wintering a small string of his own at Sheepshead Bay. and believes he has some winners in the lot. They are all two-year-olds with the excep tion of Cassandra, the Horoscope three year-old, with which he made a. killing last fail. Cassandra has broadened out con siderably since -the close of racing last year, and is now a One looking Ally, likely to make good in fair company next season. Of the two-year-olds the most promising is My Addle, a slashing looking daughter of My Boy-Addie Mac, and therefore a half slater to the good racer MoAddle of a few years ago. My Addie is a. chestnut of fine propor tions, well set up, and on looks, at least, is destined to become something of a racer. Oraculum. a bay colt by Sorcerer; Encore, a bay core by Plaudit-Iona; Rye Boy, a chestnut coit by Favordale-Mlss Rye, and a filly by the Pepper are other Juveniles In the Odom string. All are wintering well and will be out early this spring to be pre pared for racing. Should Odom decide to ride again a rearrangement of affairs may be necessary. He could ha cdly care to train and ride horses at the same time, although Marty Bergen combined the two vocations law year. The owner-trainer-Jockey would tx> an innovation, but the Jockey club could hardly find ground for objection, provided he Aid not ride against his own horses. www ,iwwwww^1ii*www?www?si?i> THE GREAT MEDICINAL WHISKEY.
