Tho foul was ho obvious that not even
jjien who had bet on Nelson could say
that It had not been committed. All
through the long contest Nelson had
employed rough tactics. He repeat

.Lead hauled uwny by the referee.
Slier was loudly cheered as he left

ried to his dressing room. Nelson and
ills seconds were hls&ed as they de
parted. Gans, In many ways, put up a most
.remarkable battle. Of course IiIb
skill as a boxer was expected to be
shown, but his endurance surprised
-everyone. His work was the more
-wonderful when It is known that in

aright hand. Never after that did he
.strike a blow with It, with the excep

The first fifteen rounds of the fight
were very fast. After that the men i

ihere a rally. Although Gans was far
ahead of Nelson In points and most of

(occasions, when It seemed another '
Wow would put tho white boy out, the 1
gong rang and saved him. On several
occasions, however, Nelson apparent-
3y had the advantage. He would hit j
Gans as they broke from a clinch and i

Although Goldfield Is a mining
camp, It Is seldom that a more orderly
