SPORTS and the THE STAGE LADIES’ DAY NEXT THURSDAY AFTERNOON, JAN 12, at R. M. A. A. Much is to be had when the ladies come down to the association rooms Thursday afternon. There will be special entertaining, and it is hoped that all the ladies will be in attend ance. BRUCE & WILLIAMS. Kid Bruce and Scotty Williams are going to do a battle in the near future at one of the clubs in Cheyenne. Wyo. They are both in hard training and will probably make a good fast bout. Scoty Williams was one of the star football players with the Y. M. C. B. team that played here in Denver Thanksgiving. SAM LANGFORD AND JOE JENNE TETTE TO FIGHT TUESDAY NIGHT. One of the largest crowds that ever entered a club is expected at the Bos ton Armory club Tuesday night when Sam Langford and Joe Jennette will do another big battle, *nere is very little betting, as Langford is a two to one favorite. But I am thinking pret ty strong that Sam is a beat man when he meets Jennetette, as Joe is going to either win or die trying, and if you want to make money bet on Joe Jennetette. NETTIE GLENN AND FIVE TAR BABIES. Miss Nettie Glenn and her clever company are doing all of the big time they can fill. Sne is an up-to-date en tertainer, cannot be excelled and her support makes the managers of dif ferent meatres say that she is in a class by herself. JOCKEY JOE SMITH The clever Negro jockey, who has been riding on the big southern cir cuit. will leave for Australia the first I of Feoruary to ride at $5,000 per year. 1 THE THREE GILMORES AT PANTAGES. The Gilmores closed a very success ful week at the Pantages th night. Their act was one that was \ full of life and ginger. Their singing i was a hit and the people of Denver , will always remember them as clever j entertainers. BUCK DANCING CONTEST. There will be a buck and wing con test at the R. M. A. C. the 14th of J~.n. ! All entries must be made at once. See ' Little Mack Smart. CLARENCE CAMERON WHITE, The noted colored violinist of the world, was out to the Smart Set Vaudeville show last Monday evening and was much pleased with the peo ple in attendance and the program. He says it could have been a w’hole : lot worse than it was, and advises ! some to study, as there is the making of good performers in many of them. Mr. White is one of the finest men there is. He is clever, intelligent, and so jolly, a gentleman that makes friends and not enemies. THE GRIFFIN SISTERS. About the cleverest- colored, sister, act in vaudeville is that of the Grif- THE STATESMAN, DENVER, COLORADO. By LEON PRYOR fin sisters. They are playing the East and taking every town they play by storm. They are good singers, good dancers and good lookers, so they have no holdback. MAYME SEELEY. Probably the youngest colored wo man performer heading a company of her own in vaudeville is that of Mayme Selley, who is making a big hit with her own company, The Kol ored Kandy Kids. SAM McVEY, THE CHAMPION OF EUROPE. A few days ago Sam McVev, the clever colored heavyweight boxer, formerly of this country, knocked out Big Jim Johnson in the eighth round, who was considen d the champion of Europe. And now Hugh Mclntosh, the Australian promoter, wants to sign McVey and Jack Johnson to do a battle as soon as they can get every thing all fixed. ROSAMOND JOHNSON AS PLAY WRITER. It has been rumored that Mr. K Johnson, late partner of Bob Cole, will venture into the fieli. this season as a vaudeville play writer for the negro performer. OLD JOE GANS STATUE FOR BAL TIMORE. Mr. Joe Cans and Attorney Cura : inings were in Washington last week 'to inspect the bust of Joe (Jans, the famous ringmaster, now nearing com pletion at the studio of Isaac Hatha way, the sculptor. The unveiling will take place in Baltimore shortly, with some of the prominent men of that city as attendants. j JACK MORRIS. I Jack Morris, the clever middle i weight boxer, who has been in D< n ver for some time, says that he is II now in condition to meet any man ir the world at 158 pounds ringside barring Sam Langford. THE SMART SET SHOW A GRAND SUCCESS. To the amateur performers that ap- , peared in the show last Monday night much credit is due. There are so few good negro acts that come as far as this city that in away we are i working in the dark. The first num- i ber, Mr. Carter Harris, comedian, was i somewhat of a hit in his bits of com edy, but should improve in voice. The musical team of Gauss and Anderson was good. Mr. Gauss played some | very difficult music from noted com posers, such as H. J. Kate, and will in the course of time be one of the j leading violinists of the race, as he is a hard student. Elkins and Tumlin were a hit in their clever dancing, receiving plenty of applause and mon ey from the audience. Hattie Me- , | Daniels is always a hit and deserves all the credit bestowed upon her. She is as clever a young colored singing and* dancing comedienne as there is jin the country. The quartette which lias been making good for some time, was there with the goods. Thomas Berry, basso, was pleasing. Julius Ragsville, tenor, knocked a hole in the ceiling. Officer as a leader i 3 good. Leon Pryor as a baritone needs a new voice. The company of Pryor. ■ Fitzpatrick & Edwards was fair. Mis* j Ida Fitzpatrick's singing of ‘Suga; Moon” took t house, and on the whole considering the performers as amateurs, the show was very good. Go to West Bros, for fried spring chicken. MERRY WIDOW MASK BALL GIVEN BY THE Y. M. A. C. The Colored Young Men’s Athletic Club PRIZE CONTEST--Prize for the Finest Costume.
