Sports Are Drifting In.
Now that the fight fans have satis-
lied their Interest In the recent Sulli
van-Davis light at Gregory , they are
turning their eyes hack to Norfolk ,
where they are expecting "something
good" to bo pulled off soon. Who are
to be the principals In the mill to be
pulled off In this city soon is not yet
known , although there are many can
didates. Sullivan's scalp is being look
ed for by local promoters.
Trainers are slowly coming back to
this city with expectations of "work
ing out" some candidate for a big
mill with the O'Neill fighter. Arthur
Davis , known as "Long Distance , " sud
denly appeared hero a few days ago ,
and Is quietly "on the job" at the Oxnard -
nard hotel , substituting for the regu
lar porter there. Frank Osborno , who
helped train Kid West , also made a
sudden reappearance and Is acting as
fireman at the Pacific hotel. Ho has
been in the roller skating racing game
for the past few weeks at Gothenburg ,
where he defeated local talent.
Young Denny has sold his farm west
of the city and although his crop did
not goltli the deal he has finished
corn picking and is reported interest
ed ln a coming light here. Kid West
is probably well satisfied with Omaha
for a winter roost , but declares he will
soon be hack In Norfolk. Ills gym
nasium proposition went up in the air
in a controversy befoie his battle with
Claude Housh declares he is now
through witli the game , while Lee
Hoot could he tempted to go once
more with some good featherweight.
Gene Sullivan , the lightweight brother
of Montana Jack , also has a tender
spot , in his heart for Norfolk , and has
declared he would like a little mill
with some good lightweight. Bresna-
han was suggested for him , but that
Omaha fighter , atlhongh willing to
come to Madison county , cannot make
A fight , however , is looming up on
the horizon from Hastings , where Kid
Pierson , who has been undergoing a
lot of heavy training , is casting his
battling optics-Norfolkward. His ob
ject looks like Sullivan , who Is > vlll-
ing to go on with the Hastings lad.
In the meantime Sherman Poling ,
and a number of other promoters here ,
are keeping the mails busy through
Clarence English and other well
known lighters , who have already .sug
gested many fast boys all the wiy
from Hugo Kelley to the fast Laup.ford
to come for the scalp of Montana Jack.
Jack Is willing and has not yet turned
down anything , although the idea of
bringing in the "big ones" does seojii
logical. An enormous guarantee is al
ways required by them. Sailor Kelluy
of Lincoln , who has asked for u fight
in Norfolk , has not made connections
up to this time.

Athens , Nov. 28. Elections are in
progiess in Greece today to choose
the members of the new national as

Imve been made to prevent an out

LONG AND SHORT HAUL.
Washington , Nov. 28. A bearing ol
representatives of both railroad com
panies and shippers was commenced
today by the interstate commerce com
mission , to decide differences resulting
from the construction of the long and
short haul order.
Under the decision of tlie cunimis
slon the railroads must maintain the
present rates until Feb. ' 17. next , ir
conformity with the law which pro
vldes that no changes are to bo made
for a period of six months. The com
mission some time ago announcer
that no changes in rates would be
permitted in the interim which in anj
way affect the existing relationship be
tween the long and short haul.
After Feb. 17 , under the order ol
the commission , a lesser rate can no
be charged for a longer than a shortei
haul , except In special cases to be
determined by the commission.
The railroads are required to applj
to the commission for each group o
rates where It is desired that the loiu
and short haul principle shall apply
Specific reasons must bo given In eacl
application for the suspension of tin
law which provides that no railroat
shall charge "any greater compensa
tlon in the aggregate for the trans

kind of property for a shorter than i
longer distance. "
Tlio commission Is granted dlscre
tlon in the law to prescribe , after in

may bo relieved from the full force o
this provision. This has led to mi

and from the jobbers and buulnes
