Bowker, Feather-Weight Champion of England, Praised by Nolan
Englishmen Are Eager to See
Attell Fight Their Star
R. A. Smyth
Manager Billy Nolan has returned
from London full of admiration for the
fighting qualities of Joe Bowker, the
champion English featherweight. He
pronounces Bowker the greatest fighter
of his inches in the world and thinks
he could clean up the class in this
country without much difficulty. Bow
ker is boxing instructor at the National
Sporting Club and fights only in the
ring of that exclusive organization.
Nolan will try to take Abe Attell back
with him to London in July to fight
the Englishman for the world's title in
their class.
Nolan says Attell can win more
money if he defeats Bowker in England
than he can make by defeating any
other boxer now In the ring. The Eng
lish admirers of Bowker will back
him for an unlimited amount. He Is
a particularly clever boxer and is also
a hard hitter, being of rugged build.
There is «o boy in England at the
present time who has a look in with
Nolan is building high hopes on the
English boxing tournament in which
he is interested and which will be pro
moted at the Olympla, five miles from
the center of London, about the middle
of July, He plans contests in the
featherweight, lightweight and heavy
weight classes. For the lightweight
division Nelson will be one .of the
principals. Attell is the choice for the
featherweight fight. The man for the
heavyweight bout has not been selected,
although Sam McVey is In line for the
honor. He is winning consistently and
seems to be coming on steadily.
Boxing Is In great vogue in England
at the present time among all classes
of people. Bouts are presented night
after night in the Whitechapel district.
A small admission fee is charged. In
some places the bouts are held In public
houses, where all that is expected of a
spectator is that he patronize the bar.
The bouts .are not limited as to the
number of rounds, which range all the
war from four to twenty. '
The National Club Is an exclusive
place for which tickets are hard to se
cure. The hall seats only about 600
persons. Each member Is allowed one
ticket In addition to the one upon
which he Is admitted. Big prices are
paid, for .the extra tickets, especially
when ,,.an .English boxer is pitted
against an American.
• • •
Nolan describes Gunner Molr as a
man who looks like Sharkey. He Is a
bit heavier than the sailor and possibly
an Inch taller. He Is no longer In the
service of the King, but still retains his
military title. He was formerly the
wrestling partner of Hackenschmidt,
but gave up that strenuous form of
sport for the gloves.
Battling Nelson Is heartbroken. The
name of his beloved home town. Hege
wisch, has been wiped from the map.
While on the train recently en route
to his old home he asked one of the
tralnhands when they were due at
Hegewisch. -^7
. "There Is no such place,** replied the
railroad man.
Nelson then learned that the name
of the town he had made famous had
been changed to Burnham during his
absence In Europe. He has threatened
to appeal to the President in an ef
fort to Eave the unpronounceable name
for the suburb of Chicago. Nelson has
been "of Hegewisch" bo long that he
does not want to lose the distinctive
title. He has also jocularly taken the
title of "Mayor of Hegewisch.";
Nelson has invested considerable of
his money in his adopted town and has
taken much pride in its development.
He bought $41,000 worth of real estate
tfiere recently and is now building cot-;
tages on it.
It was necessary for Joe Thomas to
go east to get a reputation as the best
welterweight in the country.* His re
cent showing against Honey Mellody
has sent his stock booming, and now
he finds it difficult to find an opponent.
He has challenged everybody ' from
Tommy Ryan to the last - man- in the
division without being able to get a
match. Thomas received $1200 for
beating Mellody. He has under consid
eration a boxing pilgrimage to^ Eng
land. From the class he has 'shown
here he should be able to give a good
account of himself across the* water,
as none o£ the lighters there seem to
class with him. His style of boxing
should be pleasing to the British sports,
as it resembles that of some of their
old-time favorites. Thomas' style is
patterned after that of the boxers of
many years ago and is still effective,
as has been shown by his recent es
says in the ring.
Thomas is willing to let Tommy
Ryan name his own terms and weight.
He has also made the liberal offer of
meeting any of the men who weigh"
between 145 and 154 pounds. Joe left
the ring after his recent fight without
a mark,; and the spectators pronounced
him a second Kid McCoy for cleverness.
The boxing promoters, having given
up all hope of inducing. Champion Jim
Jeffries to re-enter the ring, are now
trying to induce him, to agree to pose
for the moving picture machine down
on his alfalfa farm. They want to
show him milking the cow. pitching
hay and in other pastoral pursuits of
the farmer. Jeff has the matter under
consideration and will probably agree
to the - terms offered him. The only
hitch at the present" time Is that he
has set a high valuation on his serv
The following telegram was received
yesterday from Battling Nelson: ; V.
CHICAGO. March 16.— William Lincoln Bal
lincer has just operated on my 'throat. Removed
both my tonsils. Great operation. Doing fine.
Will be here In Chicago Eye, Ear, Nose and
Throat Hospital until Monday, or Tuesday. -Then
I leave for the South for c few weeks. - \u0084 \u25a0
To what extent the operation will
affect Nelson's movements In the box-
Ing Jine withln'the next two months is
hard to determine. The opera
tion is not a severe- one and
the rugged Battler may" want
to fight within a short- time. It
is possible, however, that his next im
portant ring engagement ! "will • be an
international match at the Olympla,
London, In July. He Is interested .in
this with Manager Nolan and is anxious
to meet the best lightweight in Eng
land at that' time.
The sporting men "of Marysville were
so satisfied with the success of the
boxing bout they promoted there on
Washington's birthday between "Cy
clone" Thompson and Rufe Turner that
they are preparing for another match
on the Fourth of July. Thompson made
such a good showing that he has been
offered another match, for which -a
$5000 purse will be hung up. An op
ponent has not yet been selected ' for
Thompson, but some promising light
weight will be matched with 'him.

shortfleld. The throw seems too long
for him from that position, while Samp
son is believed to be even better at
shortstop than at second base. With
the exception of the "outfield, where
Owen, Gore,\pudley,- Scott "and Wlrt
are still being tried out,- the .m akeup
of the team, as it will finish the sea
son, has been determined. Behind the
bat thero .is still • some doubt. Stott
and Dailey are both out of * the game
with injuries, and at the time; of their
retirement, neither. had s a commanding
lead for the position.
Coach Lanagan's resignation has not
yet been officially passed upon, and the
student body seems willing to accept
the delay as meaning that some sati3;
factory arrangement whereby the
coach's services, may be retained is un
der consideration. In fact, the solu
tion of tho question in all probability
will be the adoption of a coach system
similar to that at Yale. Lanagan will
be retained in an advisory: capacity,

as a try. ( Formerly, it was required
that the ball be on, over or touching

Twenty-Six Millions' Expended in
Manufacture of Motor Cars
During Year of 1904
That the automobile is not a passing
fad, like the bicycle,; and 'that it has
come to stay, are the opinions ex
pressed by the Government agents .who
have .been r investigating the -„\u25a0 Industry.
Not only- were automobiles to. the value
of more than $26,000,000 manufactured
in. America ; during the year of 1904,
but Yankee cars were shipped to every
corner of .the globe. They have found
their , way. Into » Peru, • China, South Af
rica, Java, and all parts of Europe. A
bulletin .issued by the Department of
Commerce and Labor says on the sub
ject: .
/'ln five {years the manufacture of
automobiles in the United States 'has
grown ? from an- Industry so unimpor
tant .that it . was not .reported separ
utely at the census of 1900 to one with
products valued \&t $26,645,064 at the
census .of 1905, which -governed .the
calendar year 1904. This- remarkable
growth Is not like that "of the bleycle,
based on fad. and so liable to as sudden
a 1a 1 decline."' Unlike the bicycle,' the auto
mobile is . not .essentially ;\u25a0 a . new ; ve-'
hide, -but ,merely\a: carriage or : truck
with^a new. means of propulsion/; pos
sessing many advantages over -p. ve
hicle 'drawn ' by horses. - As- a means "of
amusement Its popularity, may fluctu
ate ;or - decline,^ but Its ; practical ; value
has been; demonstrated so 'thoroughly
thatlts use' will doubtless become more
general\each succeeamg , year, ; until* It
Is ,• displaced Iby - some vehicle *as much
its .superior.- as the automobile is the
superior, of the horse and -wagon."

Burlew and O'Neill entry, Sir Toddlng
ton and Judge Post, were lukewarm- fa
vorites at 2 to 1. They opened at 8
to 6. but so much money was placed
on Yankee Girl that the odds on tha
favored entry dropped back. The book
makers opened the price against Yan
kee Girl at 6 to-1. "Blond Charley"
went around the ring, stopping at each
layer long enough to offer $100, $200
and $500 bets on his filly. His friends
followed him, and In a few minutes
this weight of money forced Yankee
Girl's price to 14 to 5. Temaceo, win
ner of the California derby, went to
the post with 12 to 1 against him.
Yankee Girl's victory was due In a
largo part to the clever horsemanship
of Jockey Mountain. He rode her per
fectly.' The rider came from Hot
Springs under special contract to Elli
son, who had informed him that tha
filly would win, barring accidents.
The field passed the grandstand after
the start with Sir Toddington two
lengths in front of Jhe others, closely
bunched. In the back stretch Judga
Post, on tho rail behind Sir Todding
ton, looked like the contender, but
Yankee Girl passed him on the outside
and began to overtake the pacemaker.
Sir Toddington was game and whirled
Into the stretch still in front. Yankee-
Girl made a well-timed and game spurt.

to Protect Her and

Mrs. Louise Madru, 20 years of ago

for protection from her husband, a
bartender, who she declared had br\i

older than his bride of sixteen. Her
husband earned good wages as bar
tender and was kind to her. "His
kindness lasted," she said, "until Louis
was. born, three years ago. Then his
manner changed. He did not love his
boy and he began to hata me, I gues£;
anyway he used to abuse me, though It
was not until recently that he ever
struck me full in the face with closed
fist. He used to kick me instead and
pull my hair; perhaps he was afraid
the neighbors might comment on 'a
bruised face. These beatings have be
come a sort t. of semiweekly event."
she continued with a forlorn; smile that
showed lacerated lips where the teeth
had sunk into the tender flesh under
the impact of. a blow, "and so when ha
came home andbeat me last night, and
repeated the attack this morning,' I felt
he should be put where he couldn't"
harm his babies."
She stated her husband was night
bartender at the Art Cafe. Seventh and
Market streets, and that ha earned
good' wages. She denied he "was an
habitual drunkard, and said that ho
beat her whether he was drunk or
Accompanied by the woman and tho
.little family, Patrolman Isaacs went; to
the accused man's place of business,
where Mrs. Madru said she would
point out her husband.
