Expert workmen rreat Interest Shown Here in Outcome of Welsh-Ritchie Encounter Tuesday There is ,more> interest being dis- ilayed locally, and probably at oth- T places, over the result of the com- ng pugilistic London on 'uesday night than there was in the esult of the meeting of Johnson and nigfct in Paris it is conceded on all sides that Velsh and Ritchie are about the most dmirably-matched pair of Queens- ury gladiators-that have put their ames io an agreement to fight in a cng time, and this with'the interna- iorial character of the affair with fie world's lightweight, title involv- ed, arouses wonderful, nterest in the oitoome. The interest around tho "Alexandra hotel has been so worked iip in the scrap ithat J. H. Lee, manager, has cabled to the London pa- per, asking for a cable on the result of the fight as soon as it terminates. London reports indicate that a ter- rific, battle is being looked forward to there- How the London sports ar- rive at that conclusion is something of a mystery. Welsh is not in the habit of'mixing things with a man of Ritchie's calibre, and U-Ritchie- fails Welsh's defense, it may be' a very tame affair. If it is bound to be a terrific affair look out for Rjtchie. The betting is even.

'tho city foothall championship, eluding Tahcr. Both teams will Iio on their mettle for this match, and it is generally agreed that Uiey are very evenly matched, as their record shows, and from general appearances. They have lost a game apiece, the Uniteds luiv- ing gone down hcfore the Gallics ear- ly in the season in a high class cxhi- hitipn of football skill. The football enthusiasts arc tilt on the qtii vive over the game and the biggest- crowd of season surely be on deck at tlie Fernie, B.C., July feature of -ne holiday evening's doings here 'was he boxing contest in the Fernie rtjna, .ausnjcea of the Ath: tic association, where Billy -Weeks f Vancouver was matched to box fteen rounds with Joe ..Uvanni of ome, N.Y. This event was preceded y a preliminary of four rounds he- ween .Kid Brown of Great Falls, :ont, and Young Dunlop of Blair- iore. These- aapirants went after one nether-hainis'er and tongs, and gave three hundred spectators a very ood exhibition. Dick Marshall, >ho efereed this bout gave a draw deci- on, which was well received. At Joe Uratinl entered the ring jr the main bout with.his retinue of econds, and about ten minutes lat- WCB'-followed by Weeks. Both fight- tfra received abundant applause on entering the'rlhg. Iteferee George O'Brien introduced tho principals, and also introduceil Dick Marshall, who issued a chal- lenge to the winner; Mr. O'Brien an- nounced that the bout "was for the middleweight championship of Canada and that it was to be under the Mar- quis of Queensbury rules, but that clean breaks must tie made. The weights were to 158 pounds but Uvanni balanced the beam at 160 pounds. Weeks, however, consented to this slight "advantage, and at 9.45 the gong sounded for the first round. By Rounds Round advanced to the centre of the ring. Weeks leads and lands heavily to the body. .Uvanni clinches. Weeks iippercuts. Weeks uppercuts again, but catches Uvanni below point of chin.

Decidedly Weeks' round. Round appears refresh- ed. Weeks leads and drives hard to body. Uvanni lands punches to ja'w and body. Weeks retaliates effect- ively to body. Uvanni vainly endea-; vors to land effectively, but his blows have lost their power. Weeks lands. hard .punches to. body. Uvannl groggy, but still game. Weeks misses vicious uppercut. Weeks lands clean left to solar plexus, and Uvanni goes down and out. Weeks' style of fighting was a rev- elation to the fans of this city, has force combined with lightning speed, and the kick of a mule in both hands, and we feel sure that he will give a good account of himself when he meets Frank Barrleau ,Qt the Nel- son Chaako Mika cm. the 17th of this month.
