v flGHIS MID FIGHTERS.- The Courts Knock Out McGovern and Corbett. , The Injunction is Not Removed and the Contest for Monday Night is Off They May Come Together One Week from Monday A Purse for Tommy Ryan and Jact O'Brien. Louisville, Sept 20. Judge White, of the Kentucky court of appeals, sitting at Frankfort yesterday,, refused to dis solve the injunction granted Thursday by Judge Field to prevent the fight be tween McGovern and Young Corbett. This means that the bout cannot go on. It is a knockout for the Southern Ath letic club and also for tho strenuous fistic game in the state. The Southern-Athletic club is out about $5,000, including the forfeit of $2,500 pnt up to insure the bringing off of the con test. Politics has cut-a leading figure in the court proceedings in Louisville and at Frankfort. Judge Guffy was se lected to hear the case for the court of appeals, but he is a candidate for re-election and refused to be mixed up with it. Judge White recently failed of re-nomination and he -was the only member of the court who could be in duced to take the case under judg ment. The other members sal: by courtesy. The Southern Athletlcclub will organize itself into a -political club and begin to pay off the scores that have been made by the fight against the contest ' , It was learned on good . authority yesterday that if Terry McGovern and Young Corbett really come together the scene of their contest will be Fort Erie. It Is said that negotiations have been quietly going on to have the combat held there, and that the only drawback now is the question of a suitable purse. - " It was learned , yesterday that as Boon as it Is definitely known that the combat between McGovern and Young Corbett cannot be held at Louisville Jack Hermann of the International A. C. -will offer the fighters a purse and agree to -hold the scrap a week from Mouday night He will not give the pair what they were to have received at Louisville, which was announced as $14,000. He will, however, make ; them a liberal inducement . . , ; Cincinnati, O., Sept 20. The news i that the injunction against the Corbett-? McGovern fight bad been sustained was received -with tears at the camps of both pugilists. Corbett was heart broken -when he was told that there was no chance for the battle to take place. "It Is lust my luck," said he. "Here 1 have been training for two months, and am in great "shape, and there can be no fight That makes about four . straight contests which have been called off against me for some reason or other. .1 don't know "what we will do about it ... It is too soon to make plans, but I'm willing to go anywhere JtO.Ha IP Jthe JBght.QQmeff,, The' champion had" tears in his eyes and spent half an hour looking at the celling without speaking . a single word. . Manager Sam Harris was dumb founded when told that the injunction naa been sustained. "Why, I did not expect that I thought It would .come off, sure, not withstanding- the fact that the lnjune tion was granted. . I don't know what we'll do, but I shall have, a talk with Corbett just as soon as possible and make some plans. Frisco seems to be the only place where we can fight, and we naturally want good induce- ments before we will go out there." ; Corbett and McGovern will meet this afternoon and talk over the fu ture. At present they do not know srhaj they can dov;; v s ,. L, -o :,, The rather successful career of Pe ter Felix, the colored heavyweight champion of .Australia, came to an end at Sydney, Australia, on July 8. Felix, who had held the title for years, and who was a pupil of Peter Jackson's, met Bill Doherty, another Antlpodena, 7They fought for a purse of $750, sub scribed by a syndicate of sportsmen A large crowd was present and the gate receipts amounted to $5,000. The London Mirror of . Life in describing jthe fight has this to say of the tilt: "Both men were in good condition. Felix gave his weight as" 13 stone 3 pounds, and Doherty 12 stone 3 pounds. Paddy Basto acted as referee. Wally Smith was Felix's principal second and Jack Marshall Doherfys Felix was the favorite. The display was far below championship form. Felix, who took full advantage of his long reach, had all the best, of the opening rounds. In the second he knocked Bill clean off his feet with a straight left on the face. Felix kept up a steady fire with the left on the dial, but his right was practically useless Doherty exercised better generalship. being very clever with feet and head work. He took his gruel unflinching ly, and kept steadily working his way to close quarters. Finally, in the thir teenth round, Doherty got within shooting distance, and sent in a crash ing right, then a solid left on the nose. Felix commenced to rock, and before he had time to recover Bill gave him one. two, three, : and, battered and bruised, Felix fell, and-. remained down many seconds after being count ed out" . Acting on the defl of Jack O'Brien of Philadelphia to Tommy Ryan, Jack Hermann of the International A. C, Fort Erie, has already hung out lines to capture the bout According to a dispatch received by Hermann's rep resentatlve In New York, the club is ready to give the men a purse of $j, 000, to be divided any way suitable to either side. The club Is prepared to hold the "go" next month. It is not likely, however, If Ryan even accepts, that it will be held as . early as this. Before Ryan left for his home at Kan sas City he had a talk with O'Brien, who saw Ryan defeat Kid Carter on Monday night The interview between the opposing pugilists was cordial and of course the chief topic of the conver sation was relative to Tommy and Jack coming together. Ryan said that while he regarded. O'Brien as eligible to face him the fight could not be held until at least two months as.he (Ryan) was suffering from a heavy cold and c!ld not care to take any chances. He promised, however, to set a date for the encounter as soon as - he .arrives at Kansas City. ;,, -The-London Mirror of Life in dis cussing the recent ; Jeffrles-Fitzslm-mons fight at San Francisco, throws some light on Lanky.

The paper further says of the marvelous wrestler: "Hack enschmidt is an all around athlete, lie can make crand circles on the bar, he can throw, back somersaults and, most wonderful of all, he" can jump more than his own height t .

" The visit of Young Acton of Ameri ca to Engldnd 'has not 1 apparently, been crowned with anything like the success expected. ' Acton and Lniiii- entz Neilson of Salford, England, met at tne uroughton Rangers' football grounds, Manchester, on September 9, In the presence of G00 sports. The conditions were best of three back falls at catch-as-catch-can style for a stake of $250. . Neilson had an ad vantage of ten pounds in weight and possessed a longer reach, although Ac ton was the sturdier built Acton se cured the first fall, but Neilson gained the next two, winning the match. John E. Kelly of Waterbury and Oscar Johnson of Hartford have signed articles for a wrestling match to take place In this city between the first and fifteenth of October. It will; be a mixd match, first fall catch-as-catch-can, second fall Graeco-Roman, and the third fall to be left to the man se curing a fall In the shortest time.

In case this should occur there is an other matter under consideration. Some of the Waterbury players in oth er leagues notified the president of the league that they would get together! a team and play the winner of the City league pennant for any part of $100.

Heatherbloom, the holder of this, record, made the Jump in Chi cago last year. It t was the same Heatherbloom. that established new figures for the high jump at Bryn Mawr yesterday. lie cleared 7 feet 5 inches. The trial was not made hi regular ring but in the rear of . the show ring where the footing, was much more secure. Richard Donnally had the mount. ' The bar was first placed at 6 feet, and the record-holder cleared it with ease and grace on the first trial. The obstacle was then raised, to C feet 5 inches, and the animal cleared this height with as much ease as he did in the first trial. The bar was then raised to a height of 7 feet 5 inches. Heatherbloom made his usual start, but just as he wa3 about to jump he balked, and then tried to leap the . bar from a' standing start. The result was that he fell across the rails, and rider and horse fell in a heap of wreck age. Both were soon on their -feet and unhurt. The fence was quickly adjusted, and on the second attempt his rider urged him forward from the start with somewhat more speed and he' galloped fearlessly up to the timber, reared high in the air and cleared the bar. .
