San franelsoo, Cul., Oct. IS. Jack Johnson vindicated bis right to the heavyweight title Saturday afternoon by knocking out Stanley Ketchcl In the twelfth round. The end came so suddenly that when Ketchcl rolled. O tho Moor and Referee Welsh counted him out, the ten thousand persons crow ding the arena remulned aim -lutely quiet for a full minute. Even Johnson, leaning against the ropes, half dazed by his own fall a moment before, did not seem to know what had happened. The climax was crowded into thlr-ty-four-seconds. At the beginning of the last r'aind there was little to Judge from the preceding rounds as to win would win. The men began In the center of the ring. They clinched and wrestled to Johnson's corner. The ne gro broke away and poising himself, dashed at Ketchcl, who sprang to meet him. Ketchcl drove a right at the black man's lowered head. Johnson ducked nnd the blow landed behind the ear. He stumbled and fell heavily, stretched on th floor. Ketchcl backed toward tho ropes, a smile glimmering on his battered and bloody face. Johnson roso slowly, s though dazed. As he straightened t) his knees, his eyes encountered Ketch el's and with the fury of a wild beast he leaped across the ten feet separat ing them. His right list shot to tin white man'a Jaw. His left crashed tc the stomach and Ills right sw ung agal l with the speed of lightning, catching Kctchi l's head as he reeled back from tho onslaught. Ketchcl dropped In a heap an J Johnson, unablo to stop lhls Tirsh, sprawled across his beaten rival's legs and fell full length himself. The negro sprang tip, but Ketrh'1 was out. once only as the seconds were sounded, he feebly moved b'v arms and rolled his head. When hi? seconds picked him up he was barely conscious. Ketchcl said after he recovered thai a chance blow finished Mm. "I am In better condition than Johnson now.' he said. "Iook at Mm. ho Is dazed Put for that one blow, I would have oe aten him." Tho nht attracted the greatest crowd In years. Over ten thousand were ndmittcd and three thousand wer turned away. Promoter Coffroth stated that $40,000 was taken In.

American Girl Sought MSS MAJORIE GOULD AND ONE OF HER SUITORS, PRINCE FRAN CIS JOSEPH OF BRAGANZA. New York, Oct. IS. Two rival suit ors for the hand and millions of Mar jorie Gould are coming to America to present themselves in person nt the feet of the American girl. One is kinsman f the cxar of Uussla and the other Is backed by Emperor frauds Jost-ph of Austria. One Is f rands Joseph, brother of Prince Miguel of Pragan.a, who re cently married Miss Anita Stewart. The oilier Is Prince Alexander e org levitch Koinanow ski, w ho Is alto duke of I.cuchtcnbcrg. If ever an American girl lived in a real fairy story It is Miss Marjorie Gould. Put the two kniglilly courti ers who ask the ri;ht to make her a princess have yet to obtain the sanc tion of a father h i can never be blinded by tho glitter of coronets or the fame ef titles. Geolg.- Gould, It is understood, re ceived the overtures ef the rival nobles with the courtesy which their royal backing demanded, but no word of en couragenunt Is known to have been given by him. The recurrent trmibl of lils sister, the former Countess He Caste Hane. now Princess de S.igan. could rot help but make him refuse his consent without absolute assurance of his daughter's future happiness. Put. after nil. it Is Miss Marjorie w ho must decide. m According to the advices from Paris, a representative of Prince frauds Jo seph of Prnganza made the formal ap plication to Mr. Gould while the family was in that city last month preparing to return to Now York. An attorney Try the name ef Thomas is slid to have opened the negotiations.

The Lean team will be drawn from all over the townh!. and will i i prise some of the l.,--t players of Indoor baseball in Calu met, while the Y. M. C.

In Paris, to take counsel regarding the outfitting of ihe duke' for his trip to New York. Such a magnificent vvardrobo "will n. ver have- hit Paris before-. Piv iously the titled seekers of the hands f he ir-i-sses such as the Prince- de Sagan and Count Pun I do Caste Han.- - were outlined on agree-ment.H to pay double price's when the heiress was won, but I. uchtonhe-rg paid down $:'i.imm cash for his outtit. So f.ir he has every reason to bn content with tho progress of his suit. Whep Miss Gould was at the Hotel Pitz he was always a welcome visimr and was often a dinner guest. Mis Gould in triii- American fashion, unat tended, made frequent automobile ex cursions with him. Pnlecd. the prince is very hopeful of taking back to Kus sia a fortune for greater than that won. by Prince Miguel of Prugati.a for Aus tria. In Leuchtenbe-rg's favor are the facts that he Is only 2S years old. dcddc.lly g.ol looking, very rich, a royal prince1, and owner and proprietor of tie Twenty-second regiment of dragoons, sta tioned nt Kh v.

Tin elukedom of LcnhtonbeTg Is a P.a varlan title cnf rred by Nap.le.n. Should Miss Gould marry him fho would have othr titles besides those of princess and duchess, for lu-r suitor Is also called imperial highness, royal I r ichness and sen n. highness. Tho titles of other American tirls would look rather dingy compared to these, nnd MNs Gould would take precedence of them all. More-over, her marriage to Prince AKsand. r would unite h r with France and Uussia and. open tfcloT every court In Europe. Put the Prime nt Pnicanza may hn counted on to make a valiant contest against the distinguished Prussian.
