Manager Nolan Resents the Sim
About the Dane by the Baltimore Boxer
If Joe Gans expects a return match
with Battling Nelson he will have
to make 133 pounds in his fight
ing togs. This was virtually decided
last night when Billy Nolan, the
Dane's manager, announced that he
would never agree to any other
weight terms and that unless Gans j
came to time he would better seek
a match with some other glove
wielder.
Nolan announced that he has Ja.OOO
\u25a0which he would deposit with The Call
any time Gans consented to make the
prescribed weight. Xolan said that
Gans could have the match as soon as
the Britt-Nelson contest was decided
and defled the colored man from Balti
more to come forward with his money
and cease talking.
"There is nothing to be gained by
haggling over this matter.'" -said Nolan
last night. "Gans knows the terms on
which Nelson will agree to a return
match. Now. If he wants to flght the
Dane so badly, why does he not come
out like a man and sign the! articles?
Gans will have to make 133 pounds and
weigh In with his fighting togs on. Just
as he did in Goldfleld. This- is final, and
I wish it to be understood.
••Gans is a confessed faker, yet he
comes out and states that he wants the
match with Nelson to be strictly on the
leveL It Is not necessary for me to
make reply to this other than to say
that the Dane has never been mixed up
!n a shady ring transaction In his life,
while the man from Baltimore has
faked all over the country. He admit
ted this before and yet he has the im
pudence to come out and- make an as
sertion that nobody who takes an in
terest in ring affairs would stop to con
sider."

Nelson will arrive from Lake Tahoe
tomorrow evening and without loss of
time will pitch his training tent at
Colma and begin work. Nelson trained
for his memorabale battle with Britt
at Colma and Billy Nolan is of the
opinion that the suburban village Is an
Ideal spot for a fighter to work out.
Nelson is in fine trim, according to
Nolan. Since he arrived at Lake Tahos
several days ago the Battler has led a
strenuous life. He indulged In all sorts
of mountain climbing, fished and
hunted and virtually lived out of doors.
A few days' work in the gymnasium
\u25a0will put him into condition for the
fight of his life with Britt on'the last
day of the month-
Britt is due to arrive from Harbin
Springs this evening. His brother,
Willus, wired him last night to make
haste, as he was anxious to see him at
work at Shannon's. Jimmy will have
to submit to his manager's orders,
though he would like very much to
remain where he is.
in a letter to Willus, Jimmy says he
is doing the work of his career in the
mountains. Like Nelson, he has take*
to the outdoor life and already feels
the improvement. On Sunday Jimmy
headed a baseball team that invaded
Middletown and took the natives into
camp to the tune of 34 to 12. Judge
Mogan umpired the contest.

Nolan. Willus Britt and Greggalns
did not meet last night to select a
referee for the coming battle. Britt
was anxious to have the matter dis
posed of. but Nolan pointed out to him
that In the articles all parties agreed \
to meet and name the referee 10 days
before the date of the contest. This
will be next Monday night. The choice
lies between Jack Welch, Phil Wand
and Jack Gleason of this city, Eddie
Smith of Oakland and Charley Eyton
Billy Nolan Is anxious to back Kid
Ketchell, the sensational Montana wel
ter weight, against Joe Thomas for a
20 round flght In this city or a finish
flght in Nevada. Nolan is confident that
Ketchell can knock Thomas out and
will post a forfeit of $5,000, which also
will go as a side bet.
"If Thomas thinks he can beat
Ketchell I will give him a chanjee," said
Nolan last night. "I have 95,000 which
I will post with The Call to bind the
match and If It is agreeable to Thomas
I will let this money bo as a side bet.
Ketchell is a grand fighter and can
beat Thomas. Joe says he needs a re
turn match to demonstrate his su
periority over Ketchell. If he is sin
cere I will accommodate him and get
the match, too. A 20 round affair in
this city suits me, though I would
rather have Ketchell meet Thomas in
Ne%-ada and let the nght go to # a fin
ish."
Ketchell is but 21 years old. Five
years ago be was given his first fight
by Nolan in Butte< Mont. Since that
time Ketchell has been beating every
man around the northern , country, and
his admirers say he is the coming wel
ter weight champion of the world.

Bill Squires has at last reached his
level. He has taken to the woods of
Humboldt county and intends to fol
low the occupation of a wood chopper.
They &ay that Bill is a very clever man
with the axe and has a solar plexus
stroke that can stow away any red
wood. He is ."credited \u25a0 also with being
possessed of the real footwork in the
forest, so it is conceded that he will
make good In Humboldt. , Bill set sail
for -the north last night and says he
will stay there for at least two months.
Incidentally, Bill cut loose from Jack
Wren and Barney Reynolds before em
barking for the pines. Squires signed
a document in which he severed all
further ring connections with the Aus
tralian book maker and the man who
steered him across the broad Pacific
Harry Leap will ship Jim Ford, 130
pounds, Charley Reilly or Al Emmick,
125 pounds, Jimmy Carroll, 115 pounds,
and Harry Bell, 103 pounds, to Los
Angeles to fight the clever boys of their
weights In the south on July 26 before
Tom McCarcy's club. McCarey was un
able to secure a big match for this
month,, so he concluded to put on a
flock. of short distance lads and make
a sort of ring carnival- of the event.

Nelson Will Fight Gans if He Makes Weight
Nolan Issues a Defi to Gans,
and States His Position
Billy Nolan
I HAVE read Gans'- statements in reference 5 to the terms
for" another match with Nelson, and also his speech, in
which he says that Nelson will have to fight on the square.
As to the raising of the scales, I will state that- 1 stand now
just as I have always stood. If Gans is not satisfied with our
weight proposition he had better begin negotiations 'for a
match with some one other than Nelson.
Gans maintains that he gave Nelson the worst drubbing
of his life at Goldfield. Admitting this to be true simply 'for
the sake of argument, why does'he not repeat the dose under
the same conditions? Nelson will meet Gans under the same
terms that prevailed at Goldfield and at no other weight This
is absolutely final. The sooner . Gans realizes this the sooner
the negotiations for the match will be taken up. Nelson's for
feit of $5,000 is ready and will be posted as soon as the Balti-.
mbreanseesfittocover.it. .
We do not change our stand every few minutes. Gans
can have the Nevada battle over again as- soon as he wishes.
We will cut the purse any way he desires. , ; .
As to Nelson's fighting on the square, I wish to say that
it is not necessary for me to reply to any such charge. This
i accusation comes from a cowardly faker, whdr has fought
crooked fights in every city of the country where the boxing
game is known. Faking is one subject that Joe Gans should
not touch upon. A more notorious faker never entered the
ring than he. If it is a mud slinging battle that Gans is looking
for he surely will get enough of this sort of game.
If Gans means business he should' post his $5,000 forfeit
with a reputable stake holder, and he will get a fight with
Nelson, who will make him quit like the yellow cur he proved
himself to be at Goldfield, when he was knocked out as fairly
as any man that ever tasted defeat and claimed a fouL

IX»nDON. July 16. — Th© . American
tennis players at the Wimbledon court"
today lost by the narrowest of margins
their chance* of challenging for th«
Davis cup. the ' International . trophy.
Beats C. "Wright. American, succeeded
In winning against A. F. Wilding, Aus
tralasia, thus making the points equal.
but Norman Brookes. Australasia, was
too skillful for Karl H. Behr. Ameri
can. Behr. after the first : set. * -was
clearly outplayed, by hi? older oppo
nent. \ , '
i A large crowd watched the struggle
to see whether the Americans or the
Australasians were to have the xlght
of challenging the English holders of
the ciip. All of the tennis experts had
believed that Behr had not had enough
experience to defeat Brookes, who haa
been playing in England ' tor ' several
years and has taken part In every Im
portant tournament.
