i .-, LOSS VOLUME i, NUMBER 26 PRICE FIVE CENTS GANS-NELSON PRIZE FIGHT Qans Wins Fight After Dirty Treatment Arena, Goldfield, Nev., Sept. 3.— Battling Nelson deliberately fouled Joe Gans in the 42nd round of the best and longest fight seen here in many years. Both men were tired when the fight ended, bat Gans was apparently the stronger. He was away ahead on points, and had smashed and cut Nelson all through the fight without being badly hurt himself. Shortly after the 42nd round com menced the men were in their usual clinch. Nelson had his head on Gans' shoulder and his arm down. Several times he hit Gans below the belt, apparently feeling for the vital spot. At last he drew back his right arm and hit Gans a vicious blow square in the groin. The colored boy sank to his knees and rolled over on his back. Referee Siler without hesitation ordered Nel son to his corner and awarded the fight to Gans on a foul. Siler's deci sion received almost unanimous ap proval. The foul was so obvious that even the men who bet on Nelson could not say that it had not been committed. All throughout the long oontest Nelson had employed rough tactics. He repeatedly butted Gans and had to have his head hauled away by the ref eree. Siler stated to the Associated Press that while he would not say that the foul was intentional there was no doubt but that it had been committed. Nelson, he said had used his usual tactics all through the fight, and while he knew that Nelson was but ting whenever he had an opportunity he did not disqualify him for that, because he saw that it was not hurt ing Gans, and as no other referee had ever disqualified Nelson for doing the same thing he did not feel like doing so. Besides, the people were there to see the fight and he did not want to disappoint them. Siler was loudly oheered as be left the ring, as was Gans, who was car ried to his dressing room. Nelson! and his seconds were hissed as they departed. Billy Nolan, Nelson's manager, made a disconnected state ment in which he said that Gans had promised hot to claim the decision on a foul and yet he jumped at the very first opportunity to make such a claim. All Nelson would say was! that Gans was tired and quit. ■ Gans, in many ways, put up a most remarkable battle. Of course, his skill as a boxer was expected to be shown, but his endurance surpris ed everyone.. His work was the more wonderful when it is known that in the 33rd round he broke his right hand. Never after that did he strike BANK WRECKER CAUGHT Tangier, Sept. 4.—The arrest of Paul O. Stensland was due to State's Attorney Oleson, a telergam from his son announcing an important remit tance, and which was addressed to Tangier, putting justice on the track. Oleson, who was in Paris on a vaca tion, was at once instructed to fol low up the clew and arrest the fugi tive. On his arrival at Tangier he was convinced that he was on the right track, as Stensland had present ed himself at several banks and tried to get letters of oredit for large sums. It is a strange coincidence that the fugitive had assumed the name of Oleson and profiting by this fact, the attorney presented himself at Stens land's hotel representing himself as his son, and learned that the later had just left for Gibralter. Olson was just in time to catch the boat. Reaching Gibralter, he found that Stenslnad had just started back to Tangier on board a German steam er. Oleson immediately chartered a steamer and by traveling under full steam arrived at Tangier before the German steamer, which be boarded on its arrival. He recognized the fugitive and dogged his steps until 9:30, when Stensland went to the British postoffloe and requested that all mail addressed to the name of Oleson be forwarded to Mogador, At .Be was signing the request form, Oleson interposed, saying: "I am Oleson, sign your name, Stensland." « blow with it, with the exception of a few short arm jolts while clinch ing. He did all his work with his left hand and put it all over Nelson. Gans' generalship was shown when he broke his hand. In the 33rd round he landed a hard right hand punch on the side of Nelson's face. A bone is in the hand snapped, and Gans stepped back with an expression of pain. He limped around as if he had stepped on his foot or turned it, and no one realised that he had bad ly injured his right hand, although it was suspected that it might have been injured. Gans stated after the fight that Nelson intentionally fouled him. He said he knew he could have fin ished Nelson, as he waa comparative ly strong and Nelson was growing weaker all the time. "Larry" Sullivan announced for Gans that he would meet Nelson in two weeks in another fight, as he was sure he could whip him and did not want to take advantage of the foul. It is hardly probable, however, that the men will meet again in that time. Gans explained his course of battle by saying that he did not want to box Nelson for fear of tiring himself. He found early in the game that he could protect himself in the clinches, and also realized that the exertion in fighting that way was much lees than if he stood back and did some showy boxing. He was hitting Nelson all the time and maneuvering so as to make the Dane do most of the work first. The first 15 rounds were very fast. After that the men slowed, and only at intervals was there a rally. Although Gans was far ahead of Nel son in points and most of the time looked a sore winner, Nelson put up a wonderful fight on his side. GANS FIGHTS CLEAN BATTLE. One time, when one of Gans' punches knocked Nelson through the ropes, Gans picked him up and help ed him to his feet. As the colored boy stood with his hands down wait ing for Nelson to steady himself the Battler gave him a vicious blow in the stomach. He was roundly hissed for this by the crowd. Gans was undoubtedly the favorite with the people. His gentlemanly behavior won the admiration of the Goldfield people, and they showed it. Gans is a hero in Goldfield tonight. The attendance was about 5000, al though estimates were made as high as 8500. The Goldfield Athietio club arrangements were perfect. There was not a hitch of any kind and the fight could be seen from any part of the arena. About 200 women were in attendance. Stensland was thunderstruck and, after vainly protesting for some mo ments, allowed himself to be con ducted to the American legation, where he is closely guarded awaiting the arrival of a warrant, which has been requested by cable from Wash ington. INDEPENDENTS IN LATAH Will Put Up a Ticket Against Machine. Moscow, Idaho, Sept. 4.—The fact was .given out officially yesterday that there will be no democratic tic ket in Latah county this fall. The convention called for September 27, will be held merely to organize for the state and congressional campaign. Then the delegates will adjourn to at tend the independent republican mass meeting called for the same time, where they will aid in nomin ating a county ticket, one half repub lican and one half democratic. The independent republican move ment is intended as a token of disap proval of the action of the so called machine. The call is signed by W. D. Smith, former editor of the Mir ror; H. C. Shaver, editor of the Jour nal; J. Ricbcreek, a former mail carrier; W. G. Barth and F. M. Johnson. All of these men have been lifelong republicans but are bitterly op p ose d to machine politics.

INLAND BUILDS TO LEWISTON Surveyors Are In the Field Near Julietta Lewiston, Idaho, Sept. A.—A large gang of Inland Empire survey ors is camped on the west side of the Potlatch creek between Julietta and Arrow. Indirectly from them it ban been learned that the electrio road, from Spokane to Lewiston, will prob ably seek the Clearwater river by the middle fork of the Potlatch. That means that the road after leaving Moscow, will run south to a point somewhere between Joel and How ell, at the headwaters of the Middle Fork, follow its grade to Julietta and from there follow the Potlatch to Ar row. At Arrow the Clearwater river is encountered. From that point the road will run along the north bank of that river to a point opposite eith er Lewiston or Clarkston before cross ing the Clearwater. If the Clearwater is crossed after passing Lewiston, and below the mouth of the Snake river, which now seems probable, it means two new bridges for this city and Clarkston— one across the Snake below where the Clearwater empties into it, and an other over the Snake into Lewiston above the steel structure erected by the Lewiston Clarkston company. At oue time it was thought that the Inland Empire would reach the Clearwater by the Little Potlatch, running though Genesee after leaving Moscow, but it has been found with in the post two weeks that the grade will be too steep. There was also some talk of the electrio line coming south along the Hathawai creek, but that grade, which would bring the road out on the Clearwater about six miles above the city, has had to be abandoned because of the grade from the prairie into the canyon. LUMBER BLOCKADE Northern Pacific Adopts Arbi trary Methods. Tacoma, Wash., Sept. 4.—Lumber men are aroosed over the arbitrary action taken by the Northern Pacific in shutting off all forest products for a week from September 1 until midnight, September 8. The order to refuse shipments of forest pro ducts for eastern points for one week is made in order to clear up accumu lated loads that now encumber nearly every sidetrack from Portland to Spokane. These loads are estimated at 1600 to 2000 cars, tbs latter figures prob ably being more nearly the correct one. The Pacific division can han dle more than its share of the traffic, but the Idaho division extending eastward from Ellensburg can handle bat 250 loads a day. Figuring on that basis the Northern Pacific pacta to clear its sidetracks of loaded lumber cars by next Saturday night. This means that at least 10 trains a day of lumber alone must be mov ed, but this will not relieve the Northern Pacific of arrearage in car orders. S&ndpoint Election. Sandpoint, Idaho, Sept. 3.—Sand point's school election today was the hottest event of the kind ever held in the city, a total of 444 votes being polled.

The oonditiens are such that most of the voters of the county are against Halt man and they will do all they can to beat him in the tall election. O. L. Peavy, contractor and build er and n republican, Mid: "I shall rapport Wall and the republican tick et aa put up at the convention. I cannot ray what the result will be." Judge R. B. Morris: "I don't re gard it as a Morgan bolt. Judge Morgan coaid not get his friends to rapport the republican county ticket. I think 1,000 republicans will vote the democratic county ticket and that Is amply sufficient to elect. " Fred J. Keller, merchant, a repub lican: "The remit will be that the repnblioan ticket will not be elected by more than 300 votes in the coun ty, and there is no doubt but that the democratic judge will be elected. Dunn will loee Shoshone county by 800 votes." State Senator Herman H. Taylor, a republtan: "In the first place it ia not Morgan's bolt. It la a bolt of 1,000 or more good republt is. The result will be that the democrats will largely be successful. This is not a bolt of disgruntled candidates, for the force of the bolt haa oome from the voters and friends of Judge Morgan who demand that the republican county ticket be de feated as a rebuke to those who use high handed methods in making nom inations. I think the result would be the same If Judge Morgan and the rest of us had announced no bolt whatever, for the reason that the peo ple had already declared In large numbers that they would not vote the republican ticket although they were republicans. 1 am not a sorehead candidate and would not let my name replace that of Weil's under any cir cumstances, aa this is a fight for principle and not for office. " T. J. Stoneetreet, dealer in poles, a democrat: "Well I think It means a success for the democratic party in the county. I feel satisfied it means the carrying of Sandpoint for the democrats on the county and stats. I especially believe it means the elec tion of Judge MoClsar for state sena tor. " G. H. Hipke, republican, manager Humbird Lumber company's store: TO HAVE CONSTITUTION Pekin. Sept. 4.—-Tbe emporor bus Pekin. Sept. 4.—-Tbe emporor bus issued an edict promising constitu tional government when the people are fitted for it. Tbe edict says: "Since the beginning of our dyn asty there have been wise emporors who have made laws suited to the times. Now that China haa inter course with all nations, our law and political system has become anti quated and our couutry Is always in trouble. Therefore, it is necessary for us to gather more knowledge and draw up a new code of laws, other wise we shall be unworthy of the trust of our forefathers and the peo ple. '' Tbe edict cites the fact that travel ing commissioners report that the cause of China's weakness ia antago nism between tbe rulers and the rul ed. and promisee administrative and financial reforms. When these are accomplished and the people are edu cated to understand their relations to the government s constitution will be framed. Tbe time for putting this into effect, the edict says, will de pend upon the rapidity of the na tion's progr e ss towards enlighten ment. WARM SCHOOL ELECTION A- W. Branson and F. D. Winn Ara Elected Directors. Yesterday witnessed tbs hottest election of school trustee s ever held in tbs city. All tbe afternoon, from tbs opening of tbe polls at 2 o'clock, the Branson-Wist supporters, and "I think it will have very little in fluence as to the defeat of the repub lican ticket." W. E. Hutchinson, democrat: I olaim that It means a clean sweep tar the democratic ticket In the coun ty. I don't see how the republicans can get any votes when they turn down such men as Judge Morgan and Senator Taylor. They will see tbe result on November 6." O. E. Riggs, democrat, enabler of Traders State bank: "1 think It will elect the democrntle tioket in the county. Judge Morgan and Mr. Taylor were justified in bolting.** E. W. Drelsbaeh, butcher, a demo crat: "It means a democratic rao eeas. I have been over the county a great deal of late and every one I have met believes It la the best thing that could happen for the democrntle party. Every one feels that It was the proper thing for Morgan and Tay lor to do. It appears to be tbe de sire of everybody to get rid of Helt wao." Ignatz Well, republican nominee for state senator, refused to be Inter viewed. Robert Campbell, Laclede: "This district admires Judge Morgan very much and he and his friends can rest assured that a solid democratic vote will come out of tfats place." 0. S. De fen bach, manager of the Northren Mercantile oompany, and a republl an: 'The disruption of the republican party In this oounty means, It seems to me, a democratic success this fall." J. P. Dunn, democratic nominee for county commissioner Is here from Moravia, and said: "The turn In the situation makes me feel good." F. W. Whitaker, banker, gives the following extended interview; "It la not s disaffection; It Is purely and simply s dissatisfaction with the methods pursued by the majority un der lash and spur. We think the chances of success are bright. We expect to place tbe ban on boss Ism, we expect to settle tbe question as to whether we are living in Idaho, U. B. A., or in Russia; we expect to place tbe republican party In Kootenai oounty on tbe basis of govermsnt for the people by the people, of the peo ple, not government of the satellite* by the boas for the sycophants. Ill oar opinion, there are 1500 dissatis fied republicans in Kootenai county, s large percentage of whom are in favor of the present movement to stifle 'boseiam. ' How it will affect the state ticket we are not in a posi tion to say,'' the Williams-Campbell supporters hurried their people to tbe polls, and there was an endless chain of car riages arriving at the school boose. At tbe la-ginning of the voting, It ap peared that the last named were in the lewd, and there was but little op position. but by four o'clock each side was doing Its beat to run in their votes, and the voting was fast and furious. This condition lasted until the polls closed at 7 o'clock. At the closing of the polls tbe votes were counted by Dr. H V. Heal Ion, Capt. Ciacho, and T. A. Daughter), who acted aa judges and clerks, and at ten minutes after 8 o'clock they announced the total number of votes cast, as 455; giving A. W. Branson 325, F. D. Winn, 316; A. A. Campbell, 142 and B. H. Williams 127. The successful candi dates nre comparatively new men and the vote of confidence In their abili ty is quite a compliment. Both stated to tbe Frew that they will en ter upon the duty of school trustee unpledged to any one and tree to do that which they believed to be for tbe best interest of tbe school without fear or favoritism.
