By Little Mexican
' NKW YORK, Jan. IS. Joe Rivers, the
Mexican lightweight, outpointed Leach
Cross of this city In a ten-round bout
Rivers had the better of the first two
rounds. While the Now Yorker was show
ering rights and lefts to the head In the
first, the Mexican slipped to one knee at
tho ropes, but was up In an Instant,
Rdopted blocking tactlc and proved
Cross' superior at infighting. In the sec
ond round Cross scored the only rel
.knockdown of the bout with a left hook
under the Jaw.
. Thence on Rivers fought cleverly and
nas so rapid in movement that Cross fre
quently could not find him, losing his
range and missing and becoming de
cidedly wild at some stages. Rivers'
showing in the last eight rounds earned
lilm a victory by a comfortable margin.

for the Hotel.
Further steps In tho construction of
Omaha's new million dollar hotel will
wait on negotiations that aro pending
for a suitable tenant to tako tho lease,
so that the plans and general stylo of
architecture may bo made acceptable.
This Is tho concensus of opinion arrived
at at a meeting of the board of directors
held at the office of G. W. Wattles, tlie
president, to hear a report of progress
from the snb-commlttee previously ap
pointed to look Into this feature Of tlie
"We have had a great many appli
cants for the leases." said president
WattleB, "but not all are going to be
able to qualify. A man to get this lcaso
must convince us that he Is a man ot
sufficient experience to hundlo a hotel
of this kind, and make It a success. We
have, however, now a number of appli
cants on our list who It seems will be
able to qualify, and convince tho board
that they 'can deliver the goods.
"Wo did not want to put a million dol
lars into a hotel here ncrore w.e had
leased It. and then hav a man como
along and tell us that If we had Just buUt
It a little different, or arranged It a little
different In this, that, or the other
respect, ho would have given us so and
so much for it. We want to build it right
when we build It."
The hotel will rent for approximately
JC0.000' per year, as the directors aro fig
uring on about 6 per cent on tho Invest
ment. It as also reported that the deeds of
the lots comprising the site hod been ex
ecuted, giving clear title, and that the
udjolnlug property would be held tem
porarily subject to possible requirements
of more ground for the hotel.

Big Herds in the

"The herds of cattle are becoming
smaller and smaller In tho Big Horn
Basin of Wyoming," said J. Dougherty
of Ton Sleep, Wyo., when In Omaha.
"There aro few of tho ranchers In tlie
bnBln now that havo over 1,000 head of
cnttle. The big outfits have sold out and
tUo ranges hove been cut up largely.
Thoro will never bo the cattle In Wyom
ing again that we had years ago. I can
notice a great difference In the number of
cattle In that country since I wont theru
some twelve years ago,"
Mr. Dougherty says It Is, of course,
also noticeable that the grade of cattle
has become better as the numbers de
creased, because the smaller ranchers nnd
farmers have stocked up with better
breeds of cattle.
Mr. Dougherty does not look for a
diop In pricos, as tho supply is limited,
and he docs not look for the west ever

Jack Fltr. Gat-ran says he has been
walking In n circle In Omaha for two
days. The circumference of that circle
Is about twenty-flvo blocks, nnd ho has
followed In quest of a room ho rented
when he landed In Omaha Monday night
from Tellurldo, Colo. He don't care so
much about the room, for he has not
even slept In It yet, but he does care
for a grip, containing a good ran or, a
bunch of good cigars and a $.1,000 In
surance policy, that, he left there. Jack
told his troubles to Ralph Mason, mull
clerk of the Rome hotel, 'as he casually
drifted Into tho lobby whlto on his
rounds. He sayn ho la an expert In
concrete work ami that ho expected to
get work on the now reinforced con
crete, building at Sixteenth and I-eavcn-worth
streets. He got Into tho city
late In the evening and rented a room
at a rooming house, which, the land
lady told him, was four blocks from
Sixteenth and Leavenworth.
"That's fine, thinks I," said File
Garran. "But I goes out for a bite to
eat and when I turns a few corners I
loses my bearings. Now that's north.
Isn't It?" he asked as ho Jerked his
thumb In the direction of South Omaha.
He was corrected on that point and
soon look up his search for his room
again. He said ho thought It would
bo easy to find his way back to the
rooming house bo he did not bother
to take the number. When he found
himself lost he remembered only that
the landlady had told hlrrl his room
would bo four blocks from Ulxteenth
and Leavenworthi so he strolled to that
point and carefully stepped off four
blocks. Here he bogan to walk In a
great circle, keeping four blocks from
Sixteenth and Leavenworth and nt tho
same time keeping his eye pealed for
aii'thmg that would look llko the door
he entered to rent the room. Tho cir
cle took him down Into the railroad
yards under the viaduct. Knowing for
certain that he had not engaged a room
there, he backed up and got a fresh
