Sulllvans Make Good In Gotham. "Those Sullivan boys , Jack and Dan , from Montana , have made good In Now York now and are right In the running for the middleweight title , " says Robert Edgren , sporting editor and sporting cartoonist of the Now York World. Mr. Edgren has taken a great fancy to the two O'Neill fighters who left this vicinity some time ago after defeating every fighter they came in contact with. Mr. Edgren knows a fighter when he sees ono and In the Sullivan boys ho sees two clean men who have taken to the professional prize ring after having made their way through a series of athletic contests beginning with polo vaulting. "Dan and Jack Sullivan are real Sulllvans and of good Irish stock , " continues Mr. Edgren in his Introduc tion to New York of the O'Neill fight ers , and then ho adds : "Paekey McFarland told mo that Jack Sullivan , who trained with him In Los Angeles , was the best middle weight in America. Ho hadn't seen Dan. It's a question , now , which of the brothers will go to the top first They are both genuine middle-weights. Jack fought n twenty-round draw with Stanley Kotchel , and has knocked out a lot of good middle and heavyweights. His first trial in Now York was at the Olympic Monday night , and he made ; Connie Schmidt look like a clown in a circus. "When the Sulllvans landed in New York no eastern middleweight would make a match with them. It was a case of 'none so poor to do them rev erence. ' 'Who over heard of the Sulll vans ? Let. them get a rep , ' was the cry. The real trouble was that the Sullivan reputation had been passed around , and the local champions didn't want to meet middlewelghts who had f been lighting heavies all over the country and heating them. 'Dan couldn't find a middleweight opponent , so he fought Reynolds , a dangerous heavyweight , at Brown's last night , and knocked him out in a round a one-punch knockout. "That middleweight title Is running around loose like a stray dog , and if 'the best middleweight in America' Isn't entitled to it , who is ? " Edgren gave the two O'Neill boys n feature place in his sporting page of last week. Mr. Edgren certainly knows how to pen the face of a pug and he has both Jack and Dan standIng - Ing with gloved palms up under the plum tree of the middleweight title waiting for the lonely plum to drop Into their arms. Other pugs arc in the distance with their hair on end yelling disapproval. John Pollock in the World tells the following of one of Dan's latest featf in New York : "Montana Dan Sullivan won the easiest kind of a victory over Jacl < Reynolds , the Brooklyn heavyweight at Brown's Gymnasium A. A. , puttlnj him away in the first round of a ten round bout with a short right ham swing to the Jaw. This was Dan's in Itlal appearance In a contest in thii vicinity , and the neat and quick wn ; in which ho whipped over the sleej punch made him an instant favoriti with the large crowd of club member who saw the scrap. The blow tha finished Reynolds was the only gooi one landed , as Reynolds bad previous ly missed several swings for Sullivan' jaw before Dan got over his wallop. " The Philadelphia Public Ledger , 1 telling of how Dan put the torrlfi Billy Berger to the bad in the sixt round says that the O'Neill fighter ha not yet struck the six-round gait an that he Is not taking any chances t let the middleweight title slip hi grasp. "Sullivan Is apparently a long dii tanco lighter. " says the Ledger. "I the first round he jolted Berger's ja' with a terrific right , and after tlu round Berger had n wholesome rcspe < for his opponent. " Before his fight with Berger th Evening Times gave Dan's history i detail as follows : Dan an Olympian Athlete. From the amateur realm of Olyr pic athlete to the commercial aspei of a tin-eared pugilist is a conside able leap ; but that Is the chasm whic Montana Dan Sullivan bridged wlthl a year or more. Montana Dan , in accordance wil the almost unvarying custom of fi tiana , is decorated with the name i the silver state because ho was hoi In Nebraska. His first appearance : the effete east will be tonight , wh ( ho barters blows with Pittsburgh ben cat , Billy Berger , of the Dendy ontou age. age.Now Now a little of the personal histoi of Montana Dan makes an intcrcstii perusal. He has four brothers , and ; are fighters , or at least three of them rc. Jerry , the youngest of the pug nacious quartet , thought that ho wan. But a few minutes' fistic converse with our own Wllllo Moody took that bollof out of Jeremiah , and ho has never regained his faith In his person al ability to make a dent In contem porary llHtlc history- HOWOVIT. back to Dan. Statistically speaking , Daniel stands 5 feet 1014 Inches In his stockings , and has seen twenty-six summers pass over his youthful head. When he fights ho tips the bar of the scales at If.S . pounds , and claims , with propriety and truth , too , that he Is a legitimate middleweight. Of his prowess as a disciple of fisticuffs one must learn later. Until his forthcoming argument with Billy Berger ho has fought a dozen times. Each was a victory. In his twelve fights he has never known the sensation of the ominous "ten" being tolled over his prone body. Has Never Been Staggered. Indeed , he has never felt the punch that made his knees sink with help less until he toppled to the lloor to await the count of "nine" to rise stag gering to his feet. Not only are these facts true , but Dan himself states that ho has never been smote with such fierce attack that ho was even dazed. But , historically , the fighting epi sodes in the life of Sullivan are scarce ly worth an extended mention. But his general athletic prowess Is such to mark him as n considerable boy In thrft particular Held. Sullivan was born in a little town known as O'Neill , Neb. As a boy he was a rugged chap and naturally took to athletics. He devoted himself to no particular form , but gave his efforts to many diversified forms of many-ave- nued sport Dan began , of course , as a slmon- pure amateur. His success became a matter of such neighborhood moment about the town in which ho was born that he early was looked upon with considerable respect , even by those whose athletic activities took them out of Uie horizon of the little Nebraska community. The Sulllvans slipped away from Ne braska several years ago and went into Montana. Here a larger field of endeavor was offered to Dan. Hero ho found athletic clubs appointed In the best of style and furnished with the necessary paraphernalia to bo reckoned as splendid organizations in every respect. In Ail-Around Championships. It was nuts to Dan to join ono of them. Ho speedily became reckoned as ono of the best athletes in Butte. Ixical meets always found him in the list of prize winners , and his trophy room looked like a jeweler's. Along in 1905 Portland , In the neigh boring state of Oregon , wanted to show its appreciation of the explorers who comprised the Lewis and Clark expedition that revealed to the coun try the fertility , the wealth and the nature of that great part of the north west. So n gigantic exposition was held. Here , too , the national amateur ath letic championships were held in con nection with the exposition. Athletes of various degrees and stations flock ed to the Oregonian city. Sullivan went with the team from Butto. Ho entered the all-around champion ships , and in this strenuous competi tion finished fourth. Ho won the pole vault with a flight of 11 feet over the bar. He was first also in the high jump with a leap over the stick of S feet 8 inches , and also took the junioi 56-pound weight throwing for distance with a putt of 24 feet. After the exposition , and when the American team to visit the 1906 Olym pic games was made up , Sullivan wuc taken as a member. Ho made the trii to Athens with the team and cngaget in the heavyweight wrestling contest He tussled two and one-half hour ! without a fall , against the toughes opponent in the competition. Becomes Pugilist. After a short period in amateu wrestling , when he reached homo hi found the step into professional rank ; an easy one to make. Ho had a sue cessful career as a professional , bu when the game seemed to be ebbini decided that ho would take up som other branch of commercial activity. Professional pugilism seemed nntui ally the next move , and into flstlan Montana Dan went. His career in thi form of sport has also proved as su ( cessful as his efforts in other fioldi 's Through the west he is known as Hercules who disdains to pick oppoi c-nts according to weight. Anything that savors of heavyweigli or middleweight does for Dan. He ha a match with Pueblo Jim Flynn , wh lias forty pounds on this lad. Th ic match fell through. Then Dan shoo the west.

Under cros * examination today Enrico Alfano ap- licnred to less advantage than ho did under direct Interrogation yesterday when his vehement denials that he was cither the head or the tall of the Caniorrn or had guilty knowledge of the deaths of Gennaro Cuoccolo and his wife , fairly stampeded the audi ence. He fended skillful blows not so convincingly. "If you were Innocent , " asked Pres ident Blanch ! , "why did you fieo to the United States ? You did not take your lllght immediately after the crime you were accused of. In fact , you delayed and were arrested. But following your release you fled .when Abbatemagglo's revelations began and In so doing you showed that you felt that the informer spoke the truth. " "I lied , " answered Alfaco , "because for the second time I TS.IS experienc ing an attack of intestinal trouble and I feared that it would bo aggravated by confinement If I was held in prison for some years preceding my trial. Of my ultimate vindication , I had no doubt. " "And what of the Camorra today ? " pursued the president. "It no longer exists. " "That assertion , " retorted the presi dent , "Is explainable when It is re called that a rule of the society obliges Camorrists to deny to the au thorities their affiliation with the Ca morra , this repudiation of their po- sltou not implying cowardice in the eyes of the Camorra.
