I ILL kI H Salt Lake Fans Fail to En D It thuse Amateur Curtain- Ijj raiser Is Event of Evening. Illj SALT "LAKE, Feb. 5. There were Ijjj no real features at Hardy Downing's ffl n Manhattan club show in the Grand m last night; in fact, the best bou of the SIS oveing, from tho spectators' stand N 1ft point, was the amateur curtain raiser l) SI between a pair of Italian feather hUI weights from Fort Douglas, and they t p were brothers, even though Referee jW Dowing introduced them as Kid Spa ll HI ghetti and Kid Macaroni, j IS These boys just could not resist the temptation to get after each other. Lj IB When getting instructions from Hardy H m one squared away and took a poko at IB his brother. When the bell rang at Bljfl the end of the final round, neither jJj wished to quit, and they kept right on Inj despite all "Fat" Schuler could do with m tho bell and what Downing dared do I'd in getting in between the two garllc jlj eating wild boys. Hardy finally i M grabbed one in him scsas and hostili u ties ended. The supposed headliner between MJ Heinle Schuman and Young Kid Davis 1 n was far from satisfying. Heinie ap I peared in new "tights." They were 9 of rather flowing character and of S spotless white. The crowd commented 3 on his outfit- and Heinle must have ' jj taken It to heart, for it wasn't the I class of a fight he was expected to i give that ho handed the spectators. I 11 1 l v mzzzxam in , . mfrmi hiiiii.i 1 1 i . . i Kid landed the most blows in the first, but they were of the open-glove va riety. They sparred and fussed around throughout the second, third and up until near the end of the fourth, when Kid landed a real punch, which started Heinie going, and for the balance of the canto the Denverito was really aggressive, reddening the Kid's nose, but doing no real damage. The fifth and sixth laps Avere fast, but neither broke any eggs. The draw decision was right. Battling Charlie Midkiff and Mys terious Jimmy Brown, both with ag gravated grouches, went through six rounds, which Charlie won by a mile. In fact, after the third circuit about all Jimmy did was to try and keep the Battler from messing up "his bread basket Before that, Brown managed to get in a number of his famous hay makers. It looked as though tho Og denite might have made a clean-up in the second round if the bell had not clanged just when it did, for he had tho Battler in a bad way. But that was his last chance, for Charlie's body attacks from then on had tho myster ious one hanging on at every' clinch, and covering when the Battler rushed. The expected caveman bout be tween Ogden Kid Davis and Young Al Palzer was fair. Both tried and their hammer and tongs milling at time3 had tho crowd really enthused. The Kid kept piling up a slight lead In each round and had such a lead when tho sixth round was over that there was nothing to it but a decision for him, which Hardy Downing awarded him. The only K. O. of the evening camo in tho third round of the Kid Hanson Nick Boles bout. Both aro Twentieth infantry Sammies, from companies D a'nd E, respectively. Nick had all the better of the going In the first, but the Kid's heavy hitting wore down the E company boy in the second lap and ho was glad to taketen" in tho third circuit after a clip had put him down for the count of eight. Fighting Kid George waB far out weighed by Pat Haley of Garfield. In explanation after the bout, Referee Downing said that ho was Informed by parties ho considered posted that Pat would weigh in at 117 pounds. In stead, the Garfiold boy was closer to J 137 pounds, and the twenty extra Til III ; Information concerning the Wyoming Proven Oil Fields. II - OIL INFOMATON BUREAU Box 205 .

COLD KEEPS BOYS AWAY FROM TRAPS BACCHUS, Feb. i Only five mem bers turned out for tho regular prac tice shoot of tho West Mountain Gun club Sunday. Tho cold wind blowing across the trap was probably respon sible for the small attendance. Con ditions were anything but pleasant and favorable, and low scores were the rule. Chaso headed the "gunners" with 35x50. Eudey had to be content with 32x50. Stewardson beat out McLean for third place with 24x50. McLean let thirty get away and finished with 20x50. Moore awoke from his "beauty" sleep In timo to get to the club and shoot 25, out of which he accounted for 19. The next shoot will be held Febru ary 17, when tho "boys" say the scores will bo different. MOSTON, Feb. 4. An almost un broken lino of men, women and chil dren today and tonight passed before the biol of John L. Sullivan, the last of the old guard of heavyweight pugil ists. . In full dress, the body of tho dead champion lay in the darkened parlor at tho homo of his sister, "Mrs. Annie E. Lennon, in the Roxbury district, while relatives, friends and admirers of tho old gladiator called to gaze for the last timo on his features Meanwhilo, final arrangements wpre made for the funeral which will be hold from St Paul's church, Roxbury, Wednesday morning. Hundreds of men prominent in tho sporting world, rep resentatives of temperance societies and others from far and wide, sent word that thoy would bo present at the funeral. It was hoped that Rev. William W. A. Sunday, tho evangelist, who de clared John L. Sullivan won his great est battle when he "gave booze the knockout," would attend the funeral. "Jake" Kilrain, tho pugilist who bat tled seventy-two rounds with Sullivan in tho old days, is also expected to be here. Plans for a memorial for the dead champion wore being, considered today, but no definite decision was reached. Contrary to popular impression, Sul livan did not leave much of an estate. Although he had received a fortune in the ring and later in theatrical ven tures, his friends say today that the veteran's estate consisted only of his farm at Abington and a few securities.

PETER MR SS WINNING FAME Peter VJsser, former Ogden city fire man and a grappler, is acquiring a reputation in Illinois, Iowa and other central western states that is causing his admirers in this section of the country to believe ho is scheduled lo eventually wear Frank Gotch's toga. Of his latest wrestle, at Moline, la., January 25, in which ho put Paul Martison of Chicago, on the retired list, the Dispatch of that city says: "Pete Vlsser of Davenport did an other let; on his way to tho world's heavyweight championship Saturday evening, when he capsized Paul Marti son of Chicago. Joe Stecher's neme sis, In jig time. Visser had his man facing the ceiling in thirteen minutes, and by that time Martison was ready to quit In doing the submarine he twisted muscles of his leg which dis abled him for the evening. "Martinson is the man who has met Steelier on two occasions without tak ing the count The first time they struggled an hour and In the second bout they were on the mat 60 minutes without either getting a fall. Both were handicap matches. Being press ed for a finish bout by Martinson after failing to make good in tho two handi cap combats, Steelier agreed to go the limit with Martinson In Columbus, O., February 6. It Is doubtful, however, whether Martinson will be in shape to fill this engagement due to his injured leg. "When Martinson accepted Andy Steelhammer's invitation to come to Molino to clash with Visser, the Chi cagoan allowed he would have some thing soft, but when forced to forfeit tho match to the youngster Martinson was a sad, disappointed man."

DEMPSEY BEATS MORRIS. BUFFALO, N. Y., Feb. 4. Carl Mor ris of Oklahoma was disqualified in the sixth round of a ten-round match with Jack Dempsey of Salt Lake City here tonight. Dempsey weighed 198 pounds and Morris 226. Dempsey had the best of the fight all the way and had his opponent groggy when the refereo stopped the bout. Morris had been repeatedly cautioned for hitting low. An amusing lot of argument has been started in various parts of the country by sporting editors and telo graph operators who aro trying to "claim" Jack Dempsoy, the heavy weight, -who is now very much in the public eye, for some particular locality. Tho truth of the matter is that both Colorado and Utah can lay "claim" to him. Jack's sister last night told a rep resentative of this department some thing about Jack's past which should at least put California out of tho run ning. Jack was born at Manassa, Colo. When but a mere child his parents moved to Provo and they resided there until about seven years ago, when they took up their residence in this city. They havo lived here over since.
