Panama-Pacific International Exposition San F;ranciaco 1915 Visit Glacier National Park, June 15 - October 1 elicited uproarious cheers from the crowd. The fighting was fast and exciting from the start. Williams held the center of the ring and kept Coulon sparring near the ropes. When the former champion received ihe blow which deprived him of his title he fell nearly under the ropes, within a f< • feet of Williams' corner of the ring. As Referee Eyton raised the new champion's arms, the crowd cheered him. Both boxers left the ring before a crowd, usually over-anxious to reach the -xits, had moved from their seats. For right minutes' work in the ring and taking a beating at the hands of the champion, Coulon received about $8,000. Before he would agree ti. meet Williams he demanded a giiai antee of $5,000, which was granted, with the privilege of taking 40 >er cent, of the gate. The crowd was one of the largest seen at Vernon *n months and Coulon took the gate per (-. ntage. In addition to this he received $ 1,000 from the new champion, which was an agreement between the two •nen. Besides acquiring the bantam weight title, Williams received $2,500 as his end of the purse. The men weighed in at the ring. Coulon was the first to enter i le ring, appearing with his seconds, ai 9:22. He was 'loselv followed by Williams, and together they shared Hie cheers of the crowd. Wi'li.ims was the :i st to weigh in. As he stepped on tlio scales set at ID! pounds, the beam wavered even ly, arid he retired to permit Coulon to take his place Without any per ceptible difference botii fighters made the !l(i pounds to the satisfaction ot the ring officials. Round l—Coulon led off with a left to the body. They clinched. Will iams attempted sharp infighting and was blocked. Williams landed an overhand right to the body. Coulon then drove left to Williams' face, They clinched and on the breakaway Williams landed to face and Coulon got in rigli. o body. Round 2—Williams reached the kid neys over (.onion's shoulder repeated ly. Williams chopped Coulon on the chin. Coulon was on his knees while the referee counted up to seven, when the bell rang. Round 2—Both men rushed to the' center, Williams making wild plunges without damage. In the clinch he de livered several kidney punches over ('onion's shoulders. Coulon landed a straight left to stomach and ducked a wild left swing. Williams seemed more reckless than in former rounds and closed in on his man with a riKht uppercut to the chin, sending Coulon tc the floor. He attempted twice to arise as Referee Eyton counted, but was unable to do so until the end ot the count, and Referee Eyton declared Williams the winner. M'MRTV~WAS NOT III BEST CONDITION FOR LAST FIGHT Tommy McCarthy arrived in town yesterday from Lewistown and after a day or two spent, in greeting ac quaintances here he will go to Alham bra springs for a -few days before starting training for his coming bout with Jack Lester in Helena during the Eagles' convention, says the Great Falls Tribune. Tommy is looking fine and feeling fine and is confident that he will be able to dispose of Lester again. It appears that McCarthy was not in the best of condition for his recent bout withvJoe Bonds, and as a result, lie didn't show as well as expected. Some fans who saw the fight have expressed the opinion that Tommy was stale from too much training and that he is in need of a rest period Evidently McCarthy thinks there is more truth than fiction in this, for he is going to rest up for a spell at the springs and then go at his train ing in a less strenuous manner. Many a fighter has gone stale from too much fighting or too much training, and this may he the trouble with the Mon tana "white hope." However, much credit must be giv en to Joe Bonds for his showing against McCarthy and no one want to get the idea in his head that the Washington man isn't a shifty oppo nent for McCarthy or any other light heavy. Those who saw the recent bout in Lewistown have exhibited a desire to see the men in the ring again, and according to reports, it would prove a hard battle from start to finish, with no choice for winner at the start. mordecaTbrown liif NOT BE DEPOSED AS MANAGER ST. LOUIS, June 9.—Rumors that Mordecai Brown would be deposed as manager of the St. Louis Federals were dispelled by President Steinen ger and Director Otto F. Stifel. Stifel issued a statement in which lie said the former Chicago pitcher would be retained and that the club owners wore satisfied that it was no fault of Brown that the team was in seventh place in the league standing. Steinenger announced no attempt would be made to sign Marsans, Cin cinnati outfielder, until the Cuban was a free agent. Marsans, who lias been here since his suspension by Manager Herzog last week, announced that he would sign with the local Federals probably Saturday when his ten days' notice to the Cincinnati own ers had expired. ASSOCIATION AGREES UPON DEFINITION OF AN AMATEUR LYONS, France, June 8.—The defin ition of an amateur was agreed upon today by a committee of the Interna tional Athletic association. It follows closely the definition to the federa tion congress, held in Berlin in 1913, and embraces the following rules: "First—An amateur is one who com petes only for the love of spor.t "Second—Competing for money or any other pecuniary reward in any sport considered as athletic sport makes the competitor a professional in all sports considered as athletic sports." THE CNAMRER OF (MCE TRANKS THE AUTO OWNERS The Lewistown Chamber of Com merce wishes to publicly express its appreciation to the citizens of Lewis town who so generously gave the use of their automobiles in meeting trains and for the automobile excursion, as well as all others who were instru mental In making the federation the success that it w-as.

CHAMPION COULON CONFIDENT OF HOLDING THE BANTOM TITLE LOS ANGELES, Cal., June 8.—Fan dom is predicting tonight that a knock out will settle tomorrow night's ban a mweight championship contest be tween Johnny Coulon of Chicago and "Kid" Williams of Baltimore. General opinion is that Charles F. Eyton. the referee, will not be called up< n to make a decision at the end of the 20 rounds, but that the affair will ei'il before the eighteenth round. Coulon, present world's champion, says he is as fit as he ever was in his life and that he has come all the way back after an illness that took him our of the boxing game for a year Williams believes he will win because lie is stronger and more aggressive 'h..- Coulon. Eight fans figure the bout to be about an even chance, with the prob haility that the winner will secure his victory by a knockout. WILL ATTEMPT TO CATCH BASEBALL DROPPED FROM AIRSHIP SAN FRANCISCO, June 8.—An at tempt will be made tomorrow at the opening game of the Coast league se ries between San Francisco and Los Angeles to break the world's high catching record, made by "Gabby" Street and Billy Sullivan, when they caught baseballs thrown from the top of the Washington monument. "Nig" Clarke and Louis Sepulevda, two Seals catchers, will try to catch balls dropped from an aeroplane by Silas Christofferson, 600 feet above Ewing field. The feat will be more difficult because of the wind which usually blows over the new baseball park. JACK JOHNSON'S WHITE SLAVE CASE IN COURT AGAIN CHICAGO. June 9.—The United States court of appeals affirmed a previous decision reversing portions of a decision of the lower court which convicted Jack Johnson, a negro prize fighter, of violating the Mann white slave act. It was also ordered that Johnson be resentenced. The negro originally was fined $10, 000 and sentenced to a year and a day in the penitentiary. He fled the country and now is in France. On the petition for a rehearing the dis trict attorney argued that the lower court should have been sustained in every instance. OBSERVATORY 14,000 FEET UP. A new astronomical abservatory is about to be established on Mount Blanc by the French Academy on Sci ence, before which the plans of the building have been laid by Maurice Hamy, director of the Paris observa tory. The first observatory o nthe moun tain was erected by Joseph Vallot at his own expense 25 years ago on the Rocher des Bosses, at an altitude of 4,000 meters (15,084 feet). Two years later M. Jansen, a member of the French institute, built one 250 meters (820 feet) still higher up, or prac tically on the summit. Unfortunately it was found that this building ultimately must be aban doned, owing to the fact that, in the absence of stock support, its founda tions were built on snow. Time passed and the observatory began to sink inch by inch until 1909, when, on Jansen's death, the two observatories were combined and that on. the sum mit was demolished, although on its site is still left a small copper sheathed, felt-lined chamber for oc casional use. Farther experience has shown that the observatory on the Rocher des Rosses is too high and too cold, as a number of astronomical observations require considerable time and conse quently, a new site has ben chosen on o solid group of rocks called Petit Flambeau, situated on the center of the Du Geant glacier at an altitude of 3,450 meters (14,700 feet).
