Crack Feather Weight Boxers End
Their Heavy Training Work *
R. A. Smyth
,'. Abe Attell has carried the public 1
money so safely for so many years In
his ring engagements that he is still
assured of the strongest backing. He
has been made a 1 to 2 favorite over
Eddie Kelly, who looks to be fully as
good a ' bet a« Owen Moran. The peo
pl« who wager on him will surely get a j
run for their money if his record in the j
ring and his showing in training count j
for anything.
Both boxers have completed their
training and will do no more work until
tomorrow night than is necessary to
keep them in health and at the required
weight. Although Kelly looks the
larger boy of the two he weighed a
half pound less than Atteil yesterday
afternoon. When Attell had completed
hit -work for the day he balanced the j
he'am at 122 pounds. Kelly shaded this '
a- half pound, weighing just 121 j
pounds. He expects to go to bed to- j
§ ; ght weighing 121 pound* and will re- i
am about that notch until tomorrow j
Attell is not holding his opponent
lightly, and has trained particularly hard ;
•.during the twt weeks at his disposal, j
: He has built up tinco his fight with j
\u25a0Neil and h*s tritd to retain this weight \u25a0
throughout his training. Before meet- i
Ing- Neil he was as light as' 118 pounds, !
vthile this tin:e he has been above the j
322 pound mark until yesterday. His I
work yesterday consisted of three fast j
rounds each with his brother, Monte,
and with Dick Cullen. He did some in
door gymnasium work and was on the
road in the morning.
He will go on the road for a short
timo U:is morning and will do some
shadow boxing in the gymnasium in
the afternoon to keep his muscles in
trim. His work tomorrow will depend j
cbiefly upon tils weight. If this is at
the proper point to allow him to. weigh
in he will 'do but little work.

• Kelly did no boxing yesterday, Jimmy
Carroll, his favorite partner, being stiff I
from some severe work of the previous j
ay. Kelly worked on the apparatus and i
punched th^ bag, besides tossing the j
medicine ball. He put so much strength J
Into th£ latter exercise as to knock one i
or his partrcrs off his feet. In all his j
boxing and .bag punching' Kelly uses |
only straight punches. He shows great
*peed in his work with the gloves. In
boxing he wastes no motions, keeping !
up close *t'> an opponent and sending)
in hit blows «vith great rapidity.
Kelly has fought men of all weights
In his ring career. One of his oppo- j
nents was "Medals" Dukelow, .who won i
several amateur fights here. "Medals" I
weighed 145 pounds when he met Kr-lly
and he "was knocked cut in seven
round*. Another of his big opponents
wa* Jack Hamilton. He also weighed
14 5 pounds, and he \u25a0was stopped In two
rounds. The showing on which his
friends go most was that with O'Toole.
\rho is pronounced the cleverest boy of j
hit eight in the east. Kelly knockde |
him down In the first round of their J
figrht and repeated the performance sev- j
eral. times. On this showing Attell will |

Berger could not give him such as

Horse Trader Turns Pistol on
Her Husband, Then Kills
PORTLAND. Ore., Feb. 26.— Made
jealous because of the refusal of Mrs.
Omar Klum 1 to receive his attentions,
William Durrell, a horse trader of Ore
gon City, about 3 o'clock this afternoon
shot the woman three times and in
flicted injuries that may prove fatal,
attempted to shoot the woman's hus
band and then shot himself. Durrell
died a few moments later.
The shooting occurred in Eleventh
street near Stark, In front of a fashion
able apartment house, less than a block
from Washington street, and was with
in view of hundreds of people who
were passing along this prominent
Mrs. Klum and her husband were
walking down Eleventh street, when
Durrell, who had apparently been fol
lowing the pair, approached. When
but a few feet away he drew a pistol
and, without a word of warning, fired
three shots at Mrs. Klum. The woman
fell to the ground, screaming, "He has
shot me." v
Durrell pointed the weapon at Klum
and pulled the trigger. The gun' missed
fife, and Durrell, seemingly having
saved the last bullet to commit aul
clde, fired it Into his own body.
A letter was found In Durrell's
pocket addressed to his brother, G. R.
Durrell, Oregon City, In which the
slayer said he had been discarded by
most of his family, was homeless' and
lonesome. A postscript to the letter
contained the follqwing:
"If Portland would close her saloon
doors to women, how many . happy
homes there would be."
Klum says that Durrell had been in
fatuated with his wife for some time
and had followed the woman about, be
seeching her to leave her ' husband.
Klum says his wife repeatedly repulsed
the man's attentions, and that this
probably prompted the shooting.
At the hospital it.-was, stated tonight
that Mrs. Klum has a bare chance of
recovering, but in case she does she
will be a cripple for life,, one of the
bullets having struck her Bpine.

Three Hundred Delegates Hear
Agrarian Speech of
ST. PETERSBURG, Feb. 26.— Emperor
Nicholas received at Tsarskoe Selo.to
day a deputation from the duma num
bering 300 and representing all parties
except the constitutional democrats, the
radicals and the Poles. His" majesty
made an address In which he said that
the adoption of measures for the speedy
solution of the agrarian problem on the
basis of the observance of the rights
of private property was the most im
portant task before parliament. In
making this , recommendation the em
peror appealed again to the loyalty of
the peasant masses of the empire.
Standing in the center of the hall
Emperor Nicholas addressed the assem
bly in a most friendly manner, iHe
said he was glad to be able to tell them
the duma had proved itself capable, and
he hoped it would carry through the
important measures for agrarian re
form. He Insisted, however, that the
rights of private property must, be held
inviolable, and he would never sanction
a departure from principle. The speech
was received with -cheers.
The empress and" crown prince then
arrived and with the crown prince be
tween them the imperial pair moved
through the assembled ranks of/ dep
uties, stopping to greet the delegates
from each province. The; little crown
prince was in high spirits, and it was
with difficulty that his tendency to wan
der among the guests, was controlled.
. During the course of the audience the
emperor complimented; M.'.Guchkofl as
president of the .committee on 'defense.
He- thanked Count Vladimir. Bobrlnsky
for his patriotic speeches and talked
with M. Tchelishoff, the temperance ad
vocate. He totally ignored M." Purlsh

speeches in the duma, attacking -both

Faints Twice on. Witness Stand,
Then Refuses to Testify
Against Surgeon
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 26.— After twice
fainting on the witness stand in a
justice court Mrs. Alice Hudson, a
wealthy English woman, sister of Ed
win Cawston of the ostrich farm, re
fused to testify today against Dr. F.
C. S.- Sanders, a young Southern Pa
cific surgeon from Globe, Ariz., whose
arrest she had caused on a forgery
charge. The case was dismissed.
Mrs. Hudson had accused Sanders of
forging three drafts on a London bank
for a total of $33Q. They had known
each other well at Globe, their, friend
ship dating from the time, he was a
surgeon on a Hongkong liner. He had
her power of attorney and there were
hints of &; budding romance. Then
Sanders married another woman. Later
came, the charges, and now th« sequel,
with Sanders free.
"I never will testify," Mrs. [Hudson
declared .on taking the witness chair
today. "It's all a mistake, all a mis
take," she insisted.
When urged by the court to tell how,
she fainted, falling; from; her chair.
Once again she lapsed into unconscious
ness. Then the district attorney asked
that the case be dismissed, puzzled at
the woman's strange , change of front.

May Quit Academic

OAKLAND. Feb. 26.— The Oakland.
Alameda and Berkeley high schools may
decide to withdraw from the Academic
athletic league because the latter or- !
ganization has refused to grant a re- j
quest recently mado by the schools that [
they be allowed 50 per cent of the gate j
receipts of games in which athletes]
from the schools participate. Hereto- 1
fore the students have received nothing I
from the gate receipts, and they believe |
that they have been discriminated!
against. ''^ ; V* i
Each of the high schools named has!
appointed two delegates to attend a j

at the Oakland high* school. . Efforts \
will there be made to have representa- f

reopen the matter allowing 50 per cent
of the gate receipts to the student ath
letes. -If no progress can be made in i
that direction It. is very likely that the [
Oakland, Alameda" ; and Berkeley high |
schools will refuse to -longer afflllata

The Thomas Detroit Forty "Snow
Bird," the car. which only travels at
high speed, because all other gears,

trip and all the way on high speed.
C. A. Hills, the driver, said that thi.«
was the most difficult trip he had ever
undertaken or ever expected to under
take. The roads have been in such a
condition from the storms that farm

towns for a week a time. Tha
Chicago automobile club is so enthu

its return trip to Chicago a few day
ago, escorting it back to town. ' \u25a0 '
