ST. PAUL., Sept. 3.—James J. Hill addressed the Minnesota Fair association, which opened today, dedicating the immense live stock amphitheater. He said that not wlthstand the addition of more than 1,000,000 people this year from abroad outside cities was never so scarce or wages so high | as at present.

Both entered the ring clad in heavy bathrobes. The Gans people objected to Ulmer as official timekeeper on the ground of inexperience. Gans addressed tho newspapermen saying he want ed them to understand that he did not want any of his men enter the ring or throw up the sponge for him. The only thing that would go would be if Slier asked him If he had enough or was counted out. He did not want to take chances on a foul by any of the men in his corner or any one else, co Gans won the toss for cor ners. He selected the southwest ern corner by which the sun will bo at his back. In the list of seconds Tim Mc- Grath is placed in Nelson's cor ner, not in Gans'. Gans wore short blue trousers and shoes. He wore no socks. Nel son was clad in light green trous ers entwined with red, white and blue ribbons. Botoh men weighed in at 3 o'clock and came within the re quired weight. Sullivan announced the men weighed 132V4 pounds each. Nolan contradicted this, saying that the weight was not made pub lic. Gans had $2000 in bills in his hands to bet Nelson at any odds the latter chose. As usual Nolan was there with more objections. He claimed that Gans should have weighed In with bandages. Gans said: "I don't want any tape any way," and the crowd cheered. Nelson's arms are bound with white tape. Gans' timekeeper was Jack Welch of San Francisco and Char lie Dixon of the same place Is act ing for Nelson. The betting climbed up to 100 to 60 on Gans, but there were no takers. After the short but interestiug preliminary contest between Lun die and Clifford the crowd settled down for three quarters of an hour wait in the hot sun. Tempting offers of $10,000 to $7000 on Gans did not moot with any response. At 2:33 p. m., Judge Hoggett, the timekeeper selected by the club, failed t<> respond and another man had to be selected. Here was another chance for Billy Nolan to got in an object ion, and ho pro tested apainst any California man being selected to act. However, Bert Ulmer of Qoldfleld was dually ■elected. There was no objection to Slier. GOLDFIELD, Sept. 3—Both Nel son and Cans weighed in promptly at noon in full ring costume. Neither man tipped 'ho beam, which was set at 133 pounds. With so much Gans money in evidence odds of 10 to 6 on the colored fellow now prevail. There is a boiling hot sun today, j ■early this morning a number of • specials arrived and tho camp as sumed a busy aspect. Both fighters got up early and neither did any work beyond Um bering up stunts. Nelson is confident and seems happy. Gans wears the same old' j worried look, but is confident. Ho! is in good shape, although a trifle lean and Insißts he will have no' 'trouble in cleaning up the Dane. | Gans selected Jack Walsh m ducttvlty of soil. Only half the land in private ownership is now tilled, "On new lands in the west where the wheat yield should be 20 and 30 bushels per acre, where it now is 12 and IS. This is attributed to wearing out of soil. Agriculture in the most intelligent meaning of the term is something almost unknown in the states.

There must be a, revolt against the worship, manu facture and trade as the only forms of progressive activity." timekeeper. Others in his corner are Frank McDonald, Jim Griffin, Bob Turner, Kid Sims. Behind Nolson will be Nolan, Bob Lund 16, Johnny Reid, Young Kid McCoy, Tim McGrath. Nelson will go in the ring weighing 131. The "tip" comes from Nelson's camp this morning that nobody there believes ho will win. GOLDFIELD, Sept. 3.—At the final moment It is agreed that Nelson Is to get $22,500 and Gans $11,000. The club had to come through with an additional $3500 to make a toial purse of $33,500. Both fighters stood for the holdup, de claring they wouldn't fight If the demand was not granted. Rlckard balked a little, but came through as soon as convinced they mean business. Looking over the crowd there appears to be about 200 women present. They do not seem to be of the type one would expect to see at such an event, but on the contrary appear to be women of refinement. They are accompanied in most instances by escorts and conduct themselves as though wit nessing a presentation of some theatrical performance. There will be a ten round pre liminary between Lunelle of San Francisco and Jack Clifford of Montana for a $1000 purse. The men will tight at 133 pounds ring side The preliminary is sched uled for 2 p. m. Pacific time.

FAIRBANKS AT BOISE TODAY BOISE, Sept. 3—The 14th na tional irrigation congress was called to order at 10 o'clock by Vice President Shurleff. President 'members came straggling along R'verside avenue in a humorous en-leavor to get together in some Bort of order. Several blocks away sounded the cornet wailing for someone to come and lead him to where the rest of the bunch was. But it seems there want any rest of the bunch for it wasn't bunched yet. More blocks away the bass drum was trying to locate itself and boomed like a battery. Then the slide trombone wanted to find out where it was and commenced blaring for help. About that time a dark eyed bounty looked out of a fourth story window and the trombone imme diately commenced a flirtation and the notes of "Not Because Your Hair Is Curly" filled the air. Half a block away the cornet was deep in a flirtation with a lit tle blonde and you could see her blush from the sidewalk below When the cornet peeled forth the air of "Because I Love You."

The rubes with the horns had the drummers cheated for the best the snare drum could do was make a noise that sounded like "Johnny Get Your Gun."
