No dyed-ln-the-wool lover of Rood losing will be marked absent when the roll Is called at the Metropolitan club to-night, for the Indications point to a banner attendance. There ought to lie a Jam, for the club's enterprise deserves It from all points of view; Doubtless two oettcr men at the weight do. not exist than Leslie Pearce and fUanton Abbott. They are hooked for twOntyflve rounds to u decision, and' |f the limit I* reached George Slier, of Chicago, will make a decision. The club Is Incurring great expense In securing Siler's cervices, and'-has brought him here from Chicago for tonights entertainment. Slier made his name at Carson Citf, ivhen hu counted the fatal ton that .sent Jim Cotiiett's pompadour into the row of bnett':nunbers. and he has since ollleiatcd at all the I'iF: lights in tho west. H^^vas :i fjir boxer In earlier years, and ' few lightweight* could put It over him. He Is an authority on boxlny rules and was for many years the sporting editor on a Chicago dally. Both the principals for to-night's battic have completed their training and ore reported to be In tip-top shape. What betting has been done was at oven money, although naturally locnl admiration centres on Pearce. Hifi opponent has a brilliant record, and owing to his retirement from the ling for a year during which period ho has been Instructor of the Providence, it. I., Y. M. C.

Abbott look? a trine Ik-shy, but he says that's his customary appearance, he preferring to qo In a light prepared to lose fftnr or live pounds than to step on the tr.it trained to the limit nnU then AvoaK?;i. Every lighter has his own condition powders, however, and while -Abbott's theories might not suit others, lik^v'se unique are Oscar Gardner's nn?'. Lanky Hob's. Pea roe's friends are jubilant over his condition, for he looks huskier than he has for many moons, is .hard and strong, with lots of wind. He stated v.fterday that he never felt better, and he certainly does look out of sight. lie Jiis trained faithfully and Is very eager t.i win over Abbott, while the latter Is Just as anxious to beat Pearce. Defeat will mean much to either man, for It will prove a halt In his career. The l)ig bout will start nt 9:30 o'clock, ami should It go the limit, the crowd will be able to leave the club-house on the 11 o'clock motors at the latest. But the man wanting t > get his money's worth will be at the ringside at 8:."?0 o'clock, when the six-round preliminary between George Carle, a local man. and <Ieorse (Kid) Wanko, of Little Washington. Hashes across the boards. They me matched at 150 pounds, and a hot time i.? promised when they open up shop. A large Benwood delegation will br on hand to cheer for Carle, and the Interest taken in the main attraction also extends to surrounding towns.

Mr. flcorge Slier, the famous* referee, who is to officiate In the Aobott-Pearce contest at the Metropolitan club, arrived from Chicago, at 1:15 o'clock this rooming. He was met nt the Baltimore <0 Ohio station by President Maurerand Secretary Daily, of the club, and was escorted to the White Front cafe.where !ir was tendered a complimentary luncheon. The guests Included the club members and representative.* of the press. Herr Otto prepared an elegant thread to which full justice: was done. All were impressed with Mr." Sller's unassuming manner, and were delightfully entertained by brief recitals of his experiences at the most Important battles of the past decade. Mr. Slier will be the gues: of the Metropolitan club during his stay in whe ling, and is registered at the McLurc.

III. uj> of Aetnavllle; men, edited on the Wheeling manager' ami assured him that the over-the-rlvw millmon wnnW I liberally support Sumfay'ball. - Several professional and business men liave made similar expressions, during; the past week. On Saturday, President Ilowell anil Manager Lytle hud conferences with officials of the Wheeling & Elm Grove road, relative to the playing of Sunday ball. They inspected the most likely site, the Thompson lot Just beyond Fulton,. which is only sixteen minutes from the city via the Elm Grove electric line. If Sunday ball Is played the park will be located on this site. The railroad officials are holding out for the playing of both Sunday and wpek-day games at the park they propose to build for the club, but so far Mr. Howell insists upon the club playing at the Island park during the week. The-Island park has an unequalled location, being easily accessible both from Wheeling and the over-the-rlver towns. The chance to play Sunday ball Is a tempting bait,.however, and It may influence the club to the- point of deserting the ipi?uu puin.. ai^mmier win dc aemcu In two of thre^f days. Tom Pastorlous, formerly of the West Virginia University and Fairmont teams, is to be-?lven a trial on the Wheeling team. A contract will beforj warded to hlm^fq'r signature this week. ! ]topre?cntatives.of the Wheeling: club I will call on theiball cranks to-day, so! llcitinKT the sale of season books. As the I team Is,a promising pennant probability ! under excellent management, which insures the playing out of the season In the/fastest minor league in the country, the base ball .public will doubtless encourage the club by readily taking up the one hundred books that have been put out. Wheeling has four pitchers under reserve, Dolan, Crablll. Wells and Poole, and a flfth will be added to the staff in n few days. He Is an ex-N'ational league star, whose face Is not unfamiliar here. Fifteen minutes before Mr. Howell closed for the .Springfield franchise, he offered Jack GlajMcock a half Interest. Jack declined, owing, he said, to the fact that he could not throw down NlchoJ. Lytle has not yet received an answer to the letter he wrote the New Castle club, tendering his resignation as manager of the Quakers. Negotiations are off with Xagle, the twlrler who was given a trial by ChJca'go last year. It is not thought he Is j fast enough for the Inter-state clip. Tom McXamara, the umpire,who was last seen in Wheeling as an Tnter-state umpire in 1S97, will wield the indicator in the Western Association this season. Charley Mitchell has signed as a mpmbci* of tho tnJr>r-crn??> gfnff c\t um- I plres. He is a pood one. Nearly all tlu? members of the Toledo ball team have been signed and will report for duty on the first day of April. Contracts have been received from Gllks Smith, Grlffln. Bishop. Arthur, Ewing, Myers, McDonough, Butler and Wiitse. A new phase in the base ball fight bobs up serenely about every day, says the Springfield Republic-Times. Both sides are shrewdly constructing a network of evidence with which to catch th?' adversary and have been using public opinion as a teeter to play upon for tl? past few days. The latest, development. is a suit that Is to be begun in the court ?*f common pleas at no distant date In which Trustees Edwin S. Tlouck, Julius Stern and Charles Ridgely ore to be the plaintiffs and the Springfield base ball company will be named as defendant. The ground for lhis suit is an old story having jtsopenina chapter at the time the trustees ! took charge of the game last summer. When the franchise was forfeited it is siat?d the old club ow??s the players noout $2o0; league dues $.10: Pratt & Co. $21, and other bills amounting to i nearly $100. These bills were paid by the trustees so they assert, In consideration of their receiving *he grounds and club property. As is- well known, the Mad River batik disposed of this property at sheriff's sale recently on an execution against the old company. Now the trustees maintain that In view of this proceeding. they received nothing for their money and will sue to recover the same. The end is p.far off. HOWLING. MUSEE LEAGUE. w on. i,ost. ret.
