Accuse had it all over Longboat at all stages of the dis lance. Ixuigbimt ran like a man with! gout; in fact there was a decidedly "lias been" savor about his style from start to finish. His trainer claimed that lie was in condition "but his per-] fonnance did not sustain the asser-' tion. After the tirst couple of miles he plodded listlessly, only flashes of -the siwed that one made j him the ideal of the athletic tion. He created very little at. tine 10 1-2 mile distance when he calmly trotted into his dressing room.' He was five laps behind his opponent: then. The latter was running with judgment and an even pace.

The Battler will be trained to guard and block and hit straight for the mark without misns- j ing his own energy. The Battler is now said by some to fallen a victim ,to science. The last lightweight fight of importance, that between Harlem Tommy Jlurphy and Owen Moran, was another scienti- fic contest. For years lightweight fight- ing had been a reckless sort, of fight- ing, for the Batuer, with his marvel- lous speed and stamina, was able tc all the scientific hammering could be heaped upon him while he fought back without a thought of defense. He struck out aparently blnd- iy and if the punch strucK, well and good. If it missed, the Battler tried again. No more of the frail tactics for the lightweight From now on, for a time at least, we shall see the boys doing some real boxing. S.tamina is all very well. It downed Young Corbett. Terry McGovern, Joe Cans and the other old- time stars, bat if ihe Battler had mix- ed some science with it he might still be wearing the chaplet of the light- weight king. Nelson is the only man that Joe Gans ever feared. The Baltimore dar- key thinks "Wolgast is easy, and he classes Welsh, Moran, Murphy and the others as the ranKest amateurs. Ganf feels that he could get back in the game now and win back some of his old-time laurels. Bat showed in Chicago this week in vaudeville. Within a fortnight he will start upon that much advertised rest Better wait 2. bit, Joe, before you stan challenging. Poor Old Terry Terry McGovern wants to buy a farm and get back to the real fight for life. NOT SIGNED TO IN FRISCO Los Angeles, Mar.
