BOXERS MAKE
A FARCE OF
THEIR BOUTS
Russell Wins on a Foul,
While the Police Stop the
Turner-Reilly Bout.
The thirty-live rounds of boxing outlined
ca the gramme of the National Ath
letic Club for last night dwindled down to
six, and of these there was only one round
of clean give ■id take hitting. Both Tur
ner and Reilly gave a brilliant exhibition
in the first round of their bout, In the
second round li Illy went down twice and
the police stopped what at the moment
seemed a one-sided match. It was said
afterward that Reilly went down to draw
his opponent's fire, thinking he would rush
In blindly to finish him.
Tho event of the evening was a roaring
farce from first to last, and as such was
hugely enjoyed by the spectators. It
came to a sudden stop in the fourth
round, when Referee Jordan gave the de
cision to Russell on a foul. The foul con
sisted in Van Buskirk biting Russell's ear
until the blood llowed freely. It was an
nounced that the nun would box straight
asbery rules, but the bout developed
into a rough ana tumble, eaten as catch
can affair almost at the nrst Bound of the
£OI)£.
Contrary to the reports sent out from
Van Buskirk's training quarters he was
palpaDly not in condition for a fight. Fat
nurig in rouis about ins belt while he was
t-tiuggnng lor breath after the nrst scrim
mage, rtusseii carried do superfluous
tiesh, but be was an exploded "phenom"
alter tne first exchange of blows. He had
no guard apparently, simply standing and
waiting for a blow to land and then
clinching.
Alter each clinch he showed he was pos
sessed oi great strength by rushing \'an
Busk to the ropes, where he neid him
in a deathlike grip.
Two. \\.isiier\>omen with wet towels
could do more execution than the big fel
lows while they were boxing. Russell
Clinched peatedjy and Van buskirk pep
pered him at snort range, but without
seeming damage. They were roughing it
so much in the first round that Captain
of Police Gilien warned them to desist.
The spectators made preparations to leave
after the first round, as that showed them
the caliber of the men as boxers.
In the second round each landed some
blows, but none were effective. Toward
the end of the round Russell followed Van
Buskirk around the ring, hitting him at
will, but not hard Van Buskirk tried
some wild swings in the third round, all
of which went wide of the mark. The
only effect was to leave him putting like a
wheezy bellows at the end of the round.
In the fourth round the men hugged one
another like dancing bears, while Referee
Jordan grew purple in the face trying to
drag them apart. The round was hardly
halt over when Jordan stopped the men
and awarded the bout to Russell. Tha
foul consisted of biting his ear.
The bout between Turner and Reilly
was merry milling while it lasted, which
was less than two rounds. When the men
came together In the second round they
assumed he crouching position so mucn
favored by "Kid" McCoy. Both feinted
fur a few moments, when Reilly caught
Turner heavily with a left swing on the
he-ad. This aroused Turner to action and
he promptly eked Reilly down.
The latter took a reasonable time before
facing the music again. When he did so
Turner promptly knock him down
again. At this juncture Captain of Police
Gilien 3tepped into the ring i (stopped
the bout. Reilly jumped to his feet and
walked to his corner with a crestfallen
manner. The spectators called for a
draw. Referee Jordan said that as Tur
ner had the best of it up to the time the
bout was stopped by the police he would
give him Ihe decision.
Reilly forced the going In the first round
and made a good showing against Tur
ner, who is a marvclously clever boxer
and stiff puncher. In one exchange it was
give and take, with a chance of either
man going out at any moment. Near the
end of the round Turner knocked Reilly
down and huer caught him twice with left
hocks. Reilly returned the compliment in
kind, drawing blood from Turner's mouth.
When the out was stopped Reilly
looked in much worse condition than he
really was. but with the Franey fatality
fresh in mind Captain Gil len took no
chances of a recurrence of I bat affair.
The betting was 10 to 5 on each fight
throughout the day. Turner and Van Bus
kirk being the favorites. The Paris mu
tti.ils at Harry Coibett's paid $* 25 for
each dollar played on Russell and $7 "> for
Turner.
Russell was seconded by Munroe. Martin
Murphy and "Jimmy" Lawlor, while in
Van Buskirk's corner were Frank Bur
ton, Al Neill and ".lack" Morris.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL. 'FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1899.
BOXER VAN BUSKIRK LOSES TO RUSSELL ON A FOUL.
The boxing bouts at the National Athletic Club last night did not consume
much time. Referee Jordan stopped Heavyweights Van Buskirk and Russell in
the fourth round of their bout. He awarded the decision to Russell, as Van
Buskirk was biting his ear. The police stopped the Turner-Reilly bout in the
second round*
a contract by the terms of which they
are to furnish Sunday baseball, to be
played in Maryland, five and a half miles
out of this city, during the championship
season of 1900. The other parties to the
contract are owners and operators of a
street railway.
PLAYS EXCELLENT GOLF.
Mrs. Fox Defeats Miss Sands on the
Philadelphia Links.
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 12. -As good an
article of golf as any one would care to
see was played to-day in the second round
for the woman's championship of the Uni
ted States. The stars of the day were
Mrs. Caleb F. Fox of the Huntingdon
Valley Cricket Club, Rydale, Pa., and
Miss Anna Sands of the Newport Golf
Club, Newport, R. I. Although Miss
Bands was defeated by Mrs. Fox, the
Newport player was by no means dis
graced and was heartily applauded for
her uphill work. The golf of Mrs. Fox
has been the sensation of the tournament,
although in the preliminary round her
name was little mentioned for champion
ship honors.
Mrs. Fox's opponent to-morrow for the
semi-final round will be Miss Marion
Oliver of Albany, N. Y. Miss Oliver is
another player who has surprised the
talent. The other winners to-day were
Miss Ruth Underhill of Glencove, L. 1.,
and Miss Elsie Cassatt of this city.

CONSTANTINOPLE. Oct. 12.— impe
rial irade has been issued abolishing all
measures that prevented the free move

SMALLPOX AT ASTORIA.
ASTORIA, Or.. Oct. 12.— A cose of con
fluent smallpox has been discovered in
this city and the usual excitement over
the appearance of the disease prevails.
It was thought yesterday by physicians
that the case was one of varioloid, but an
other examination to-day showed it to be
smallpox in Its worst form.
The patient is Beecher Slooo. a milk
man. He recently visited Salem, this
State, where the disease is prevalent, and
it is presumed he contracted it while
there. The house in which he resides has
been temporarily quarantined pending the

Bain Prevents Racing.
LEXINGTON, Ky., Oct., 12.— The trot
ting races were postponed to-day on ac
count of rain. There will be a double
programme to-morrow.
TWO CHOICES
BOWLED OVER
AT OAKLAND
Horton Had a Narrow Escape.
Novia and .Wyoming
Earned Brackets.
The light downpour of rain left a vel
vety surface to the track at Oakland and
yesterday the members of the "patched
up" brigade ran like two-year-olds. Of
the five favorites sent to the post three,
Wyoming, Tenrlca and Horton were re
turned winners.
It seemed as if Galen Brown's Wyoming
could be half good and beat the bunch he
was pitted against in the first event, a
six-furlong selling run. The ring laid as
good as 6 to 5 about him, and he came
home alone, three open lengths before
Don Luis, an 8 to 1 sled, well supported.
Rosalbra made a bid for the purse, but
stopped noticeably the last part.
Novia, the speedy Islington mare, carry
ing the Spreckels colors, pocketed the sec
ond purse. She was third choice in the
betting to Yule and Sorrow, and with
Jack Ward in the saddle was never head
ed. Alicia, contender from the jump, was
beaten but a neck and could have scored
had the distance been further. Mounce,
on the favorite Yule, rode in wretched
form, running unplaced.
A selling handicap, over one mile and
a sixteenth, turned out "oil from the can'
for Tenrica. Tommy Walsh, the protege
of "Butch" Fisher, sat on her back, and
reserving his rush for the last furlong
won galloping. Postel with the leg up on
Anchored found the longest way around
the track, and at the wire was downed
a neck for the place by Stromo. Mon
rovia, the second choice, undoubtedly pre
fers the sprinting distance.
For the fourth event, a scramble over
the Futurity course, Horton was served
up a steaming hot 2 to 7 choice. Frawley
nearly gave the chestnut colt's backers
heart disease, as at the paddock Horton
looked beaten. His gameness pulled him
through, for he forged ahead from there,
leading I Don't Know over the line a
scant length. Whitcomb ran third.
Beyond peradventure of a doubt, if
Frawlev were to get lost on the burning
sands of Death Valley he would stumble
across a hitherto unknown well and fall
in. In a race he can find pockets that
would shame a classic member of the
light-fingered fraternity. In the conclud
ing chapter he had the mount on Polish,
the favorite, and the books were to have
received a jarring. As the field broke
Frawlev managed to get his mount's head
through the webbing, taking all but the
posts and Ferguson with him. He lost
several lengths, but hugged the rail and
lost the decision by less than a length to
Ringmaster. The latter horse, however,
won cleverly. Tiburon, which made all
the running, finished a close third.
