Mayor Dahlman and six members of th

merotal club discussed the consolidation
of South Omaha, Omaha, Benson and Dun
dee at a meeting at th Commercial club,
The meeting waa an Informal one and
the situation was simply talked over, no
action being taken or determined upon.
A great many South Omahan who
formerly opposed consolidation are now In
avor ' of rt," said the mayor.
To take In Benson," said David Cole,
It would be first necessary to bring within
the oorporate limit the area between
Omaha and Benson, but this can easily be
done by the city council."
Mr. Col said that he thought Benson

crops, when In fact Campbell had got

dissolved th restraining order without

Campbell made a showing In court that
although hi tenant had paid him half of

weed were spoiling the crop and per
manently damaging the property.
Judge Troup granted him a temporary

case waa being unduly delayed and the

Snreesa -Madera Flatter Try
to Appear Well When In
NKW TOR If,. July 1 -The physical and
mental qualification that go to make up
a crackajack pugilist differ from those of
any other class of athletes In the world,"
said the old New Tork sporting man the
other evening. "There arc many strong
points about a fellow who becomes a
champion fighter that are not generally
noticed by the fickle fight fans of today.
In the first place, the successful pugil
ists must have the rugged physique
brokd shoulders with big punching mus
cles In the upper part of the back, a
good thick neck that can stand a strain,
heavy, well set Jaw that denote bulldog
tenacity; a (moll, rather flat nose, not
easily broken; small, sharp eyes, with th
fighting glint In them. Th arm of course
should be long and muscular, yet not
bound up like those of a lifter of heavy
weights, while the waist and leg should
be small In comparison with th dimen
sion of th upper part of the body,

mons. Tommy Ryan, Oeorge Dixon, Joe
Gans, Frank P. Slavln. Young Grlffo and
a host of other famous pugilists with com
paratively stal I lower limbs. It's that
way with sprinters men, horses and dogs.
Footwork Is Important.
"The fighter of today do much mor
peedy footwork than those of the old
school. Take Stanley Ketchel for an
Illustration. With what wonderful rapidity
he get around an opponent in a twenty-four-foot
ring! HI speedy legs certainly
play a most Important part In all of hi
fights, lie's lightning Itself In the arena
nd by means of his rapid footwork he

large and unprotected. An old London

th colored champion' optics with those
of Billy Edwards, which were small, deep
set and protected by overhanging brow

speed. He . will discover this fact when
he get Into th ring with Ketchel, who
will force him to move quickly or take an

American Fighter Dreeay.
American fighters from Tom Hyer down
were always mor dressy than English or
Australian ecrappr. John C. Heenan waa
on of the neatest and most fashionably
attired men I ever met and that was forty
years ago. When Heenan went to Oreat
Britain In ISM to fight Tom Sayres for the
International championship he made; a hit
with the English nobility by his swell ap
pearanoe. They inviud the Tankee gladia
tor to their clubs and estates and gave hTht
more recognition In a social way than any
foreign pugilist ever received before or
since. Heenan was a gentlemanly fellow
and always tried to conduct himself In a
modest way. Heenan did more to raise
the standard of the American prise ring
than any other man who has stepped
through the ropes.
"Peter Jackson set a good example
among the colored fighters, for although
Peter was as black as tho ace of spades
he tried to dress and behave like a gen
tleman. Jnckton. was no piker when It
came to a matter of fine olothe and a
good living. He would buy wine with any
of them, yet he wo never boisterous or
too fresh, like some of the coon fighter of
the present day. H eldom talked upon
flstlo topic and never mixed In tough so
ciety. A a fighter he was far superior
to Jack Johnson In both science and hlt-
tlrifc. But he loved the grape Juice and
fell by the wayside.
'A classy fighter must hove a clear
brain. No dull wltted. bull-headed renow
can ever hold wy among the topnotoh-
ers. The modern flstlo champion must be
hHht. Intelligent walloper. He must
be a good ring general who can plan his
battle and be able to carry It out by skill
and science to a successful flnluh. Take
the American ring star of today and
you'll find they ar all bright, olean cut.
smart fellows, with other qualities that
were unheard of In olden time."

FOR DAVIS CUP TRIALS
English Lawn Termit Cracks Who
Will Oppose Out Experts.
FOUR OF THE BEST AXE COMING
W. Gore, Present English cham
pion, Veteran of the pnrty
J. O. Ritchie and HI
NEW TORK, July 17. That the Davis
cup trials this year will be productive of
some gilt edged lawn tennis Is beyond
question, for England will be represented by
Us foremost cracks of the present time
and surely only the best will toe th base
line for the Stars and Ntrlpes. Though
there may be some changes as time wears
on, the English team spoken of Just now
are A. W. Gore, Major J. O. Kltchie,
Kenneth Powell and J. C. Parke. Of these
perhaps Richie and Tarke are best re
membered on this side on account of their
effort In previous contest for the Davis
cup, but because he 1 th present English
champion at singles, A. W. Gore com
mand the most attention.
His recent defeat of Richie In the chal
lenge round at Wimbledon was remarkable,
especially as In years he Is long beyond
the climaterto when most players are sup
posed to be at their prime. Today he Is
41 years of age, but the flight of time has
detracted nothing from Ms ability as an
all around man at trie game. liher at the
net or at the base line, he Is equally ef
fective, while hi resourceful tactic ar
Inexhaustible. It I a fact well demon
strated that no man can ever say he ha
Gore beaten till the last point ha been
tallied against him. It has been said of
him that fortuns'seem to smile upon him
at Wimbledon above all others, but maybe
whatever success he ha attained there
la due more to hi clevernes than to luck.
Oei-e l Well Knows.
In 2 Ml when Oore first won the cham
pionship title, O. W. Hlllyard had him
virtually defeated and only failed to gain
the victory by a net oord stroke, but to
the surprise of the spectators at that very
last instant the tide turned Gore' way
and every stroke was a winning stroke
until he won out. Gore needs no introduc
tion to Davis cup matches, as he played
with H. Roper Barrett against Brookes
and wilding, tn Australians, two years
ago at Wimbledon. Thl match will never
be forgotten by those who were fortunate
enough to witness It. In the early part of
the fray the Colonial appeared to have
the Englishmen at their mercy and won
the first two sets handily. Brookes was
serving his terrific break-backs, and the
Antipodeans were 40 to 16 when the specta
tors rose and prepared to leave the courts
thinking It was all over.
Brookes, first service ball aras a fault,
and he served an easy on the next,
which Oore killed by a nice drop shot and
won the point. Then came the turn of the
tide again for Oore, and the people sitting
around who knew him smiled when he
won the game, and there were miles, too,
on many a face when the Englishmen
won the set and the set following It, mak
ing th score 1 all. Then came the final
tussle, which ha left an Indelible mark
on the history of Wimbledon. Gore and
Barrett actually romped the, first four
games of the final set without giving the
Australians a chance to score, but at that
stage the Englishmen faltered and their
opponents took advantage of the moment.
Finish of Oreat Match.
Gradually Brookes worked back Into
his fearful service and won ace after ace
until the score stood 4 all. Then the
Englishmen did some bracing and won
the next game, making the tally t to 4
In their favor, but the Australians were
there with a rally and won the two next
games, giving them the lead with I to S.
When the score reached 9 games to S the
Australians were ahead and then Came
a deadlock struggle the likes of which has
never been seen In a championship. It
was smash, bang every shot until Oore
and Barrett won with a eor of 11 to 1L
No such excitement ha been seen sine
or before at Wimbledon. In speaking
about it afterward, Oore said that It added
year to hi life, that he could talk about
It for da, a every stroke waa so In
delibly fixed on hi memory. It will be

Major J. CI. Ritchie was her' last year
