St. Paul, July 21On Wednesday the owueinhlp of $11,000 of u twelve thousand dollar purse aud the lnlddlo welght championship of the world will bo decided between James Hall uid Robert Fitasimmoiis In what Is expected to bo tho fiercest and most scientific battle of the year. If splendid physical condition, an apparent bitter personal animosity aud perrcotly fair auspices aro thoelement& of a rattling good light, this ono will be a b.tttle royal. It will occur under the auspioesof the Minnesota Athletic Club of Ht. Paul and not the Twin City Club, as has been the erroneous impres sion, aud this being the inaugural event of the club the most elaborate arrange- ucma jive wuu iii iue. aii octagonal pavilion, with a seatlm? eunnnlrv nf 7 . (,u0, has been erected especially for tho necaslon aud arranged In accordance with sugvfestloiis fiom tho iirnmlimnt: sporting men of the country. If tho uiBuv is iiur, me ngnc win oe under the cuuopy of heaven, but if otherwise a waUrproof cauvas will be in reud iuess and so arranged as to completely shelter the amphitheater while freely admitting (lie air. Tlie iwttle will be to a finish iini nr tho (iueengbtrry luloe, and will bo knockout or no pmse. Tho club name i the referee and reserves the rltrht to withhold tha purse should the light appear otherwise than on 1 s merits. There is, howover, no indication but that it will bo a battle for blood, as wolL as for fame aud boodle. Both men are conildont, as each has staked overy- imiig uu uiu result. i'iuslmmotis backs himself nnd linn placed au outside bet of $0,000 with Parson Davles, the backer of Hall. Fitz-dmuions is training at White Hear L.U1W, justouteitie this c tv. and Hall does his fitting work at Bufolt, over the Wisconsin border. The S1.500 forfeit for appearance in ring costumo under los pounds weight lias been kept care fully in sight and neither aspirant for middle weight honors will run any risk. Kach weighs to-dny within three ounces of 150 pounds, aud tho all tlay rest on Wednesday will add lour or iivo pounds anil leave a good, margin. Whilo most of tho betB thus far havo been at oven figures, Fitzsimmoiia will liavo tho call from this lime for ward. His victory without pain over Jack Dempsey gives him prestige which counts with tho average sport. Tho fact that Hall's record contains a defeat of Fitzslmmons cuts no figure with the latter's friends. They believe his story that ho was In his ( ugillstlc lufauoy aud "laid dowu" for money, and then they point to the fact that Fitz easily whipped Hilly McCarthy, tho Australian who reoantly basted Hull In eight rounds. Fitzslmmons is himself very confident, aud has com municated this feeling to all with whom ho lias come In contact. Tho fact that "Parson" Daviea Is backing Hall will induce many to follow hla lead in pla 'ing their money, though Davies has before now backed a loser. He had in $500 of Hie Fltzjimmona backing against Dempsey, but grew nervous and sjld It for $75 before the fight. Tho Kangaroo, Fitzsiinmons, la cer tainly a physical peculiarity. His broad shoulders, deep chest, long arms aud wonderful muscular development of back, arms, shoulders and chest aro In striking oontrust with his narrow hips and long, thin legs. But thoio legs are wrapped with teudons and sinews like wrought stoel, and thero is no weak spot vlnible. His hands are like mauls, und Ills wrists, measuring eight inches, run iuto forearms so hard aud tough as to niako a veritable list from wrist to elbow. Hall Is of bolter proportion, with no remarkable de velopment unless It be that of his legs aro unusually strong far his body. But arm, shoulder anil cheat muscles aro nieces of a perfect mechuulsm and his lung power is phenomenal. If liecim Inllict the sumo punishment that tho public knows is within Fiizmnmon's power to administer und can exhibit tho same power of oudurance, the light will eclipse anything In llstlc uunals for years.
