Close up the interest Intensifies itself in "picking tho wlnn'>." and this is done, or atiriinptod without reference to Die colors the t anilklateB wear. One who Is Imbued with tho real sport afflatus recognizes "neither color nor� coiiiitry." All this hlfternoBSof feeling between races that is supiioaed to be engendered by tho eohlest Is a mere mnltor of publicity exploitation. Outside of that It has no c.vhuence. 'iho underlying iirlncipic Is embodied in the words "may the- best man win," no matter whence he hullo or where the championBliip finds lodgement. We heard of a lot. of ' race bntred" prcvioun to the Inttle between .lohnson and .Fcffrloi;. yet wc saw none of it at Reno. The cheers thai greeted the laising of .lobnaon's arm by tho referee were genuine and seemingly unanlraouH. .\nd there was the "dreadful crisis" which seemingly sano newspaper folk had calculated would :>rovokp the murder of .Tohnson and the starling of a general "racewar." When you get close to the heart of it the sporting world doesn't care much or long who wins If the contest I.s clean and the victory decisive. If the victor happens to be one of one's own breed .so much the better, but it la not necosstiry to the cordial ac-cUiimliig of the bero that bo be snrih. We hear a lot now and we'll hear iiioTe aboui the "true American senti-ment" tiial is massed behind "our own l'"'ianU Gotch" in his ponding wrestling match with George llackenschnildt. The echo of this piffle abroad may create the notion over there ihi^i the best 1 lackenschmidt can get over here even though ho is a belter man, Is the worst of it. .\s a matter of fact, how-over, those who will be divided only as their bets divide them, and the belting market will be ruled by calm' sporting jiulgemonl and not by the Ciilors d;aped in the ."leparate corners. 11 will be hard to tell In the volume of (boors that will go up which iH the favorite. Hack will have no ] reason lo feel that ilie Is 11. stranger in ia strange land with every man's hand against him. Around that arena will be thousands ready to resent vociferously any uiisiiortsmanllUe advantage liial Gotch may feel at liberty to take 'of biin. Gotch. because of the time ]und place, and the fact that only iCiotcli's fellow countrymen are on ; guiir.-d will not be allowed to "get away. I witl." anything lhat does not break icvenl- for his adversary. Hacken-i Schmidt will have no one to wrestle I with, even by siiggeBtlon, but Gotch. jlf he wins fairly the sweets of victory will bo his without any iiancld In-;gvedienta. The applausR lie will hoar I will be none the loss hearty than It I the American had earned it, even Itliough he lakoa the championship out. I of America, perhaps never to bring it 1 back.
