C. Miller, promoter of the Willard-Fulton heavyweight boxing con-teat, declared today that the fight would be hald in the Twin Cities July 4, if business men raise a bonus of $10,000. F. E. Turgeon of St. Paul, representing hotel-men of ths two cities, stated that virtually the entire amount had been pledgad. Governor Won't Interfere. St. Paul, April 18.-Governor Burnquist indicated this aftei^ noon that he would not interfet* with the fight so long as the state taws are carefully observed. "So far ac the governor is con-cirhid", the only authority he has, is to see that the provisions of the taw are mat. i can do nothing more in this case," he said. ((What Otto Floto Says) Kansas City.-Wonder whether ap-1 pearances are deceiving? We ask! this question because -^hen we gave | Jess Willard the up and down and all around in Chicago recently he appeared to be fit to battle for his very life. All winter lang we had been reading stories concerning his condition. Most ot these yams led us to form the conclusion that Willard could have at any moment stepped into the sideshow of his circus and taken the fat man's job. Nothing could be further from true oi the optic with -which we measured him is deceiving. True, we ' saw him in street clothes and perhaps supporters and other braces might be concealed beneath his outer garments. But to the naked eye he looked fit to start right there and then. Three years from actual encounter in tbe ring (we of course eliminate the affair with Frank Moran in New York because that was the camouflage for fair so far as test of the respective merits of the men were concerned) has not made him any better. Boxing continually with one sparring pattner naturally forces him to absorb the style ot that partner. V/ould you think this acts as a detriment rather than an advantage for liim in bis coming bout? Three year's absence from the ring has probably dimmed his eye when we take distance into consideration. It will make it unhandy for him to block blows with the same accuracy he once knew. He may not be able to assimilate the punches of Fulton with the power of withstanding the shock he once did. His footwork must be amiss, for a new style of boxer confronto him and he cannot anticipate the movements of Fulton as he could those of Monahan, his daily boxing opponent. There are a lot ot things to t�ke Into consideration and weigh carefully before forming a conclusion as to which of the pair will prove the winner. We still maintain condition to be t!ie vital factor of Willard's chances in the coming bout. Men cannot get into shape iu a moments notice. Fighters who have laid dormant for a long spell'>of time cannot hope to round into physical perfection In the s.pace cf a few months. Yet Willard intends to prove all previous tlieo-ries in this direction are amiss and that he is going to upset established precedent in this direction in his coming bout with Fulton. No champion who has laid off for a long time ever came back and made good when he attempted to do so. Recall how Jim Jeffries had lieaten every opponent, not only one. but two and three times, and was forced to retire from the ring by lack of antagonists. Then when he did essay to come back and restore the crown to the pale-faced race he failed. He failed for many reasons, and not because he lacked condition, for lim was as physically well on that occasion as he was when he retired six years previous. If Willard defeats Fulton it will certainly upset precedent. Either then Willard is better than his predecessors who attempted tUe feat or Fulton is a poorer opponent than faced John L. Sullivan at' New Orleans, Bob Fitzsimmons at Coney Island, Jim Jeffries at Reno and Jack Johnson at Havana. BASEBALL RESULTS AiMERICAN Won Lost Pet.

Bronson was fighting for somethin far dearer to him than the Pacific coast title. He was in to hold his own, if possible, and by so doing, win the heait and hand of pretty Miss Dorothy Curtis, of Hood Iliver. Ore. Bronson failed to defeat Ingle.but he held the champion to a draw, and lor his rewa/d signed a contract with Miss Curtis as his manager-for life.

Generally speaking the British battle line ii; more secure than it has been for days, justifying the belief that the enemy may be hefd in their present positions. The arrival ot the French support is regarded as most important. They are described as splendidly seasoned men. The sight of the long blue lines marching up the roads heartened the British, giving them a fresh sense of securit.v, and the news of the French aggres-sive stroke sonth of Amiens still further heartened the anxious watchers at home. Ttte British withdrawal east of Ypres was due to the Gsmian advance from the south along the Lys Valley threatening communications of the Ypres army.
