Krnest Sieg fried, the champion heavyweight wrestler of Germany, will make his first appearance in this country at Madison Square garden January 28. He sailed from Bremen December 27 on the North German Lloyd liner Brandenburg. A reception will be tendered to him at the dock on his arrival by the United German so cieties and Turn Vereins. Siegfried will be matched against the best heavyweight wrestler that can bo se cured. The newcomer is (3 feet 3 inches in height and weighs 235 pounds and is 37 years of age. He was a lieutenant in the Hussars, tho kaiser's own bodyguard regiment. Toni Connors, the English veteran grappler is now located in Pittshorg. He still claims the world's rjiildle weight championship . Fritz Hanson of Worcester and Young Pardello will meet at Put nam Monday in a finish match. The Brook line Gym A. A. has se cured a high class feature for the night of -January 16, when George Bothner, the former world's cham pion, will wrestle J. Leonard Mason, the physical director, who is a mat performer of more than ordinary merit. Although not engaging in a wrest ling match, Frank Gotch. who is showing in England in a sketch, con sented to meet anybody the newspa pers of Sheffield, England, selected. George Dlnnie, the best man in that part of the country was trotted out. Gotch went at him like a whirl wind and pinned him in 1 minute 1 ."i seconds for the' first fall, and downed him a second time in 50 seconds. The result must have gratified Gotch, as Dlnnie lasted 10 minutes with Zybsco and 8 minutes each with Haokensc.hmidt nnd Madralli for a single fall. A London letter says: Now that. Kelly, the Hull fireman and winner of the Olympic games heavyweight, wrestling has agreed to meet Lcinni of Switzerland we can look forward to a treat. The way tho men have arranged matters is in pleasing con trast to the methods of other stars and it. is to be hoped the public will recognize this. Kelly is a fine big man and has been well tutored, but he will be meeting aried and ex perienced wrestler in I,emm, who has a fine reputation here. The public certainly show a liking for wrestling and should the Britisher prove successful, one can easily imagine another big furore for the catch-as-catch-can method. At. Rochester, X. Y..

WILL CHALLENGE JOHNSON Chicago Heavyweight Had the Beat of the Conteet For the First Twenty Rounds or More, Landing Many Heavy Blows on His Opponent's Face and Head Then the Pacific Slope's Favorite Son Rallies and Tide of Battle Turns, Los Angeles, ("al., Dec. :!L The great havy weight light between A I Kauf man of- California anil Jim Harry of (')lilcHgo ended at: .'): a. tn. today (eastern time). It ended in a victory for Kaufman in the thlrty-nlnlh round, Harry's sec onds at that lime throwing up the sponge. The contest was scheduled tn Inst fnrty-tive rounds. Barry had tbe best of the first twen ty or more rounds, but the Pacific slope favorite rallied at the end, and the tide of battle turned. l ast sparring marked the first round, with Barry landing most blows. At the end of the fourth round Kauf man was bleeding at. tbe month from many head blows dvlivercd by Barry. Barry had Kaufman all but out nt the end of the eighth round. Ife lnnd- AL KAUFMAN. ed a terrific right on the nose that, rat tled Kaufman and followed a moment later with a rain of rights and lefts to tbe face that dazed Kaufman. In the thirty-first round Kaufman received n badly bloodied nose and mouth, but Barry seemed much weak er. Barry at last complained that both his hands were broken, and his sec onds gave up. it is said today that Kaufman will waive his objections to meet In;; a col ored man nnd will agree to meet Jack Johnson. The fact that the winner of the Kaufman and Barry fight at Jeffries' arena was destined to be tbe next chal lenger for the heavyweight champion ship of the world Ie;it greater Interest to the contest than to any other that has been held for a long 1 1 inc. Kaufman was a heavy public fa vorite in the belting, and few picked the Chicago ninn as a likely winner. It was stated that Barry had backed himself to win al odds of 2 to 1. Some other bets were placed a I: 10 to H and JO to 7. It Is probable that the winner of the battle will first meet Mr. B. F. Holier of Seattle, who has already chal lenged, before a tight with Johnson takes place. Kaufman bad the advantage over Barry in weight of at least len pounds, the Cslifornhm weighing about lit". The fight was for ."() per cent of (he gate receipts, with a guarantee to each fighter of $2,500. HEAVYWEIGHT FIGHT TONIGHT Hart and Schreck In Twenty Round Contest at Lexington, Ky. Lexington. Ky.. Dec. .11. - Tonight Marvin Hart of Louisville and .Mike Schreck of Cincinnati, heavy weights, will get together in a twenty round fight in the opera house here. Although Hart calls himself former heavyweight champion of Ihe world, declaring that Jeffries gave -the title to him when the big Cailfornian re tired from the ring, he Is no longer taken seriously by sports. This Is due In part to his defeats at the hands of Tommy Burns and others. Scbreek Is also riot a bright star In (be pugilistic skies, but tbe two men are pretty evenly matched, and a good scrap is expected. Battling Nelson says he has retir ed temporarily from the ring and will not. fight again until some wor thy opponent comes to tbe surface. The light weight champion of the world says that there are six pugi lists who are in the running lor the title Freddie Welsh of England, Packey McFarland, Tommy Murph. Young Otto. Leach Cross and Cyclone Thompson. Possibly he has overlook ed Frankie Madden, who Is making ' rapid strides in the lightweight rii 1 vision. Nelson suggests that Welsh should meet McFarland, Murphy ! fight Cross and Otto tackle Thomp i son and in t lint way the public j would soon learn who is the proper man to meet the Dane for the title. Nelson believes that Joe Cans can beat any of these boxers and that if the former han'pion has not retired he should make a match with the boht uf them. In other words. Nel son does not want to enter the ring again for some time to come because of outside business ventures. He thinks that Otto can best McFarland. while on the coast the experts say that McFarland is not in the same class with Welsh. Madden has knocked Cross out and will meet ' Jfr Murphy in a ten round bout at the National A. C. In this city on Jan uary 8. Such competent Judge of pugilism as Jim Corbott says that Welsh is the only lightweight who has a chance with Nelson, and Welbh has been trying to make a match wllli the Battler for tho last month. It would appear, therefore, us If It. was up to Nclfon to take on Welsh for tho championship. Whilo Jem Diiscoll, the KnglisU champion featherweight., was further demonstrating his greatness as a pugilist ill defeating Matty Baldwin In Boston on Tuesday night, Abe Al tell, tho American chamjdon, who serins averse t, meeting Jlrlsioll u.i dor any conditions, was putting It all over n second later name I Hi, Mack ay of Cleveland at New Orleans. Mackay was knocked out in the eighth round ami Atlul, picked uo some more sure money. Attell lias lost, many friends by bis refusal to meet Lriscoll and ln created the opinion that the KniflUiiMian won, J summarily dispose of him in a twenty-live round bout. Billy Madden and Gus Ruhliu have declared without reserve that Jack Johnson could defeat Jeffries if tho latter should ever consent to come out of his retirement. They say that Johnson would simply cut. Jeff into ribbons, and use as an argument that when the big boiler maker was in tbe ring It. took hlni twenty-three rounds to stop Corbott, while he could not score a knockout in twenty and twenty-five round bouts wllli Sharkey. Hut. other experts who have figured i! all out. inslsl that, be cause Johnson beat Burns the negro is not a real world beater, for in Burns he mot an overrated pugilist who never classed with the star heavyweights of ten years ago. When Joe JeauneUe, the local col ored heavyweight, who has met Johnson seven times, sailed for Eng land and France yesterday he said that If be got a match with John son in London lie would put the new champion to a severe test. "If Johnson will meet, me jn a twenty round bout,'" said Jeannette, "he will not. put me away, and you cau bet that, he'll know bo's seen in a fight. He is not a phenomenon by any means, and in Burns he met, the biggest, false alarm that has been in the ring in many years." Chief Secretary Wood of New South Wales says that the govern ment authorities in Australia may amend the law so that there can bu no more heavyweight championship matches In the Antipodes. Secretary Wood declares that, the recent. Burns Johnson mill was not, a boxing match but, a brutal prize right, and that the men will not be allowed to meet In Australia again. Hob Fit zsiinmons and Jack (Twin) Sullivan have cabled to Promoter .Mcintosh at Sydney that they want to fight Johnson. Fitz adds that he will ask Johnson for a match when the big negro arrives in England. 'Battling" Hurley defeated John nv Dwyer at the Shamey A. C. last ni,;ht in one of the fastest ten round bouts held in New York in many years. From the third round to the end it was all Hurley, although Dwyer kept coming all the time, and at the end Hurley knew that he had been in a contest. In the prelimi naries Frank MK'ormlck knocked out Jack Graney in two rounds. Billy Ieary beat Pat Powers in three lounds and Frank MangD won from Jimmv Moran in six rounds. LUMI5LEY OR SE BRING. Brooklyn Management Likely to Jbi by One of Those Two Players. The long deferred selection of a manager for the Brooklyn baseball team Is likely to end next, week with the reinstatement by the national commission, when it meets in Cin cinnati on January 4, of Jimmy Se luiug, ihe outfielder, who for sev eral seiuoiis past, has been li Ihe 'fri-Slate league.

President Eb licts, however, says thai such is not the case, I liai Sebring will play I he outfield, but that somebody else will he the manager. He doesn't say who Hie manager will be, but Harry I.unilcy looms up a prominent fig ure for the berth. Hummel in left, Sebring in center and Manager-Captain Luniley in right is the way the outfield is expected to be made up. Sebring played wilh Pittsburg and Cincinnati in the National league.

It re sembled a battle roval sometimes, where one man is trying to get the better of flvo or six others, but. usu ally gets the worst, of It. They did everything but bito each other and they might havo done that on the quiet while the referee and other of ficials were busy In somo other quar ter trying to stop the slaughter. If moving pictures could have been taken of that contest the promot3iS could reap a few barrels of com by showing them around the circuit. Company O went, to the front early in tbe battle and soon had a good advantago on the Alumni boys. But in tho second half was where the High school lads made things hum. It was give and take and almost, ev erybody did his share. Fouls Were plentiful, but not. half of them were seen, or else they were overlooked.

Por ter, tho champion jumper who has been suspended for alleged padding of expense accounts, said yesterday: "The story coming from New York that. 1 said In a letter to Major Wolf I was going to Buffalo for the pur pose of having a good time there at the expense of the Seventy-fourth regiment is an unqualified falsehood. New York reports had it that I had declared then that as a business man I could not be expected to attend an athletic meet, without compensation, but this is without a particle of foun dation, for I never either said or wrote any such thing. "What. 1 did say in a letter to Mr Obertubesslng, chairman of the reg istration committee, was in effect that a busy man like myself could not bo expected to be away from his business at least two days and trarel nearly 1,000 miles without being properly compensated therefor in amount of recreation and sport pro vid3d, which is certainly legitimate. As a matter of fact my actual ex penses for the trip were somewhat in excess of the amount charged tho Seventy-fourth regiment, but I con sidered that, said amount was a prop er share for them to bear, to which they concurred."
