The mistake or the Golih-Perrelll wres
tle was that the preliminaries were ni t
elaborate enough. There will be no such
mistake at the Gotch-OIson match at the
Auditorium next Monday night. Manager
Glllan has contracted with two giant.
Charles Chapman, who has never appeared
In Omaha, and Charles Jensen, a police
man, and also with the Teddy brothers,
Jnhanson and Kounaeman, for the pre
liminaries. These ought certainly to supply
a vast am'.unt of Interest. In addition to
these. Mr. Glllan haa secured a talented
colored quartet to furnish music, when
there Is a moment not taken up bv the
wrestlers. He proposes to give his friend
who attend this match three time th
worth of thoir money.
Ootch took on all comer In Salt Iake
Cltv today and now he pri poses to come
directly to Omaha, getting here a day In
advance of his match with the big Swede.
The champion Is In great form; he haa been
working dally for months and Is gaining
speed every day. Olsnn. however, Is a top
notchor. and will make Gotch work to
throw him Olson hss thrown Beell within
the last year and la getting better every
day. He Is ambitli us and doe hi best
all the time. He la far and away ahead
of either Ferrelll or Bransfleld. the two
last men seen here with Gotch.
In all probability this will be the last
time for Gotch In Omaha. He expect" to
retire after his wrestle with Hackenschmldt
In January.
Manager Glllan still hopes to get Dr.
Roller and W'estergaard for a match early
In June.

Has Ruelhach won a gme this season?
These pitchers who require until the mid

are. at least, not the most valuable.
The prettiest race Just now Is that be
tween New York and Boston National.
They have tied for days. Which remind
one of the fact that Detroit ha no walk
away. Cadman is needed with thst stick of his.
He certainly made himself an Idol bv

looked like Topeka s gsme up to that

with Washington aa It first baseman and
captain bv eelting three hits In three times

to him.
The showing .Isck Johnson made against
O Brlen should be a cue to those folks who
are talking about his whipping Jeffries. If
Jeff ever Rets that fellow In the ring the
result Is liable to be a crime.
Gotch and Olson will he here nxt Mon
dsv night for the last big wrestle of the
season at the Auditorium. This man Oleon
Is a tnuah proposition and the fans are
likely, to see some fine work on the met.
Austin made six assists and five putout
placing short Wednesdav. As Im Porte,
the" second baseman, didn't have a putout
and hut one chance st an asisl which he
took, it is evident Jimmy was sent over
each time to cover the bag. Alao he got a
hit. Bad player, that.

who did the ratchlng for the Olsnts ao

so envious of each other.
Chances are if the fight had gone on
O'Brien would have whipped Johnson. If
there's anv posslhle mav bv which Johnson

would lve wise to locale that wav He

failed to win over Jack O Brien. the Phila

alx-round bout. The fight waa even and
the consensu of opinion wa tht It hould
have been a draw, had a decision bean
permissible. O'Brten'i marvelouiy faat
foot work and hla superior boxing saved
him from damage' In aeveral close mixes,
and three time he waa forced to hi knee
by the great strength of Johnon In the
It wa a fain fight, O'Brien doing th
greater nart of the leading. Johnson wa
low on hla feet, and appeared not to be
In the best condition. Repeatedly the
champion rushed hi smaller antagonist,
but seldom larded effectively. A right
hand counter In the fifth cut O'Brien'
right eye and thla was the sum total of
damage done In the six round.
O'Brien wa In and out like a flash In
nearly every round, stabbing Johnson In
th face, but the blows lacked force and
had no effect other than to make tg big
black man grin and wave hi hand at the
crowd. The spectator cheered wildly every
lime O'Brien lnnded and hooted Johnson
for his apparent rough work In the clinches.
Referee MeGulgun said after the fight
that O'Brien did remarkably well undor
th circumstances. He weighed 1024
had no effect other than to make the big
weight waa 206.
''Johnson looked tired and anxious In
the fourth round and O'Brien appeared con
fident throughout the bout. He certainly
fought a game fight," said McGulgan.
Johnson had nothing to say after the
bout except that he thought he had the
better of It. O'Brien wa enthusiastic over
f his showing. H said today he had accepted
a proposal to meet Al Kaufman In San
Francisco In th near future.
Preliminaries Cause Delay.
Three tiresome six-round preliminaries
prolonged the wait until 10:20 before John
son, the first to appear, ahouldered hi
way through the crowded aisles and
climbed Into the ring. Hla reception waa
cordial, but not enthusiastic and there wa
even some hooting by the galleries. O'Brien
came on a minute later and sprang nimbly
upon the platform. The crowd cheered
him frantically. He grasped Johnson'
hands perfunctorily and took his corner.
Johnson quickly came over, looked over
O'Brien bandaged hands and appeared
satisfied. A telegram was read from Billy
Delaney challenging Johnaon on behalf of
AI Kaufman for a fight at San Francisco.
Johnson had Yank Kenny, George Cole
and Frank Nadoll, while O'Brien a were
Abe Attell, Joe Riley, Jack Havilon and
Jack Hagan.
"I weigh 162 pounds," said O'Brien, aa lie
