Sam Lang ford, of Boston, fought "Philadelphia Jack" O'Brien to a standstill in four and one-half rounds to-night at the Twentieth Century Club. Referee Chas. White prevented a knockout when he stopped the bout In the mld-j die of the fifth round. O'Brien prac-' tically was out from the effect of a hard left hook to the jaw and had to be helped to his corner. i It was the old story of a clever, game boxer pitted against a naru-uit-ting fighter and from the start the Boston heavyweight had O'Brien's measure ta!;en. Lanford's blows were on the sledgehammer order,, while none of O'Brien's swings and hooks had sufficient strength to' bother Langford. The fight was fast! ?vfi O'Brien showed clever footwork, rs well as scientific boxing. Then was no question as to O'Brien's gamrness, as he took a lot of punishment. ; Nashville baso hall fans are ing with all thir might and that the home team may land root main away up in the rvst division.

Probably Mcintosh Is the only man alive who knows how much trouble he had in landing Johnson. He has been camping on the trail of the black ever since the latter landed in England. He has been with him at all hours of the day and most of the night. Johnson is naturally a suspi cious man and Mcintosh found it dif ficult to win his confidence. As mat ters stand at present the Australian is practically the black man's mana ger. He superintended the making of Johnson's agreement with the English syndicate that is bound to drop a pot of money on the coming Johnson-: Wells fight. I The champion actually received' $10,000 down, will receive the same amount in a few weeks, and the re-, maining installment of his $30,000 j before he enters the ring. If for any', reason the syndicate is unable to go: on with the fight Johnson keeps the; money he has received. As Wells is to receive $10,000 for his end and the expenses will eat up at least the' same amount, it is aimcuit to ima gine the backers going through with it. The best opinion in this coun try is that the fight would not draw Johnson has $125,000 in Sight Under contracts already signed Johnson is assured of 1 is ring engagements $125,000 from: alone during the next year. With moving picture rights and theatrical engagements he should have no great difficulty In doubling that. Jack says he doesn't want to box in the United States yet awhile. Guess not, when he can do as well as that elsewhere. Some of the English papers, bank ing on Johnson's supposedly amiable disposition, are saying that the black will go easy with , Bombadier Wells in their coming match. It wouldn't be wise for any one to bet much money on that. Johnson will put the Englishman away Just as quickly ;is he possibly can. He won't play with him" a minute and if WeTls goes five rounds it will be because John son is unable to "catch him bending." VISITING CHATTANOOGA.
