Oscar Gardner arrived In- the city last I
night from Wheeling:. He was accompanied
by John Arthur and William
Winder, sporting men from Wheeling.
Gardner 1s one of the moat gentlemanly
boxers In the business and knows a
whole lot besides the boxing game, being
well Informed on current events. He I
will remain here until after his contest i
with McMahon, August 17. He Is ia the
best fettle possible, but will go down to \
Volk's road bouse at Presque Isle, and I
put the finishing touches on his train- I
1ng. He is dtrfng more boxing than any ,
matt now before the sporting public and
has matches made with several of the
top notohers. He is a man of good I
habits and Is constantly In condition to I
fight at a day's notice.
George, "Kid" Wanko, is desirous of |
getting on a match in the near future,
and Intends to have a busy season of It
this coming fall and winter If it is pos- I
tible to do so. Last night he authorized i
the Intelligencer to issue a challenge to
any 138 pound man In the business for
a. limited or finish contest. Wanko is I
especially desirous of a battle with Les- I
Me Pearce, and agrees to meet the Phlladelphlan
at any time he may name.
Wanko Iscoming up the ladder of pugilistic
success. He Is a clever strong
boy, always willing to give the crowd a j
run for its money, has never been defeated.
and can make some ?f the "looking
glass pugs" take a trip to dreamland.
Wanko may never be a champion,'
but he'll beat a good many of them in \
his class.
