Mclntyre got seventy-fivn per cent of
the receipts and Stout the balance.
Members of the Lincoln Athletic As
sociation, which association embraces
nearly all the sports in Lincoln who are
entitled to be known as "dead game,"
waited for two weeks to see Stout of
South Omaha, stand up before Mcln
tyre, of Lincoln.
The match that was arranged between
Mclntyre and Billy King has been de
Having waited two weeks they had
the felicity of seeing the puny man,
Stout, stand up in front of Mclntyre's
strong right hand for about 30 seconds.
O'Neil who is Mclntyre's sparring
partner, has been matched to box Stout,
and this will be tho next erennt in -tho
THE NATIONAL) GAME.
That was all there was of the tight.
At this second "social" in tho Athletic
association's popular series of entertain
ments the attendance was, if anything,
larger than at the first, but not quite
so distinguished. The "boys" and men
about town were out in force; but that
portion of the city's masculinity that
expresses its gentility in the length of
its cutaway coats and the pointedness of
ite patent leather shoes, was not as con
spicuous as before. A roll call of the
Pleasant Hour club, for instance, would
have brought out but few responses.
But some of the men who affect society
were there, as well as represetatives of
the legal, medical and dental profess
ions. There wero a few well known
and moderately sedate business men
there. One of the most striking figures
was a be-whiskered lawyer who was
formerly attorney general. He stroked
his beard in token of keen" enjoyment.
While the crowd was waiting for the
fight to begin someone suddenly said
"There's Chancellor Canfield!" There
was a man present who looked like the
chancellor, but he assured The Courier
pugilist that he was not Canfield.
It was pretty late when the president,
who is very imposing at these socials,
with his soft hat and crooked stick, an
nounced that the fight would begin.
Chief of Police Melick and a goodly
number of officers were on hand and
the president discreetly announced that
the contest would be "twenty rounds for
points." But he gave the wink and the
crowd settled down to witness a fight to out an error and batted up to GU

Mclntyre weighed in at 145 and Stout
at 125. Stout is a little bit of a fellow,
almost a head shorter than Mclntyre.
Stout started out in a manner that
promised a hot fight. He smashed his
antagonist. Mclntyre thereupon stop
ped smiling and went after the Oraahog.
He knocked him into the ropes and
pounded him all over the face and body.
The gladiators were pulled apart, and
then Mack continued his belligerency.
He landed a blow that sent Stout to the
floor in a weakened condition- The
little fellow got up slowly in time to
receive another blow on the face that
knocked him over backwards. He
struck on his head with an audible
thud. By this time he was badlydazed.
He managed to crawl outside the ropes
and time was called. Mclntyre was de
clared the winner and he was lifted on

It was claimed that Stout was intoxi
cated and not in a condition to fight.
His friends, were, however, willing to bet
money on him.

The New York Howlers are making a

Pittsburg Post: Good reports come
from Lincoln, Neb., of the work being
done by George Speer and Billy Taylor,
the Pittsburg boys who are playing for
the team of that city. Although Speer
is considerable over weight, he is putting
up a fine game.
Spaulding, the sporting goods man,
started his professional career in Rock
ford, and this season he made the
Rockford boys a present of all the balls
they will use for the season, as well as
furnishing them with uniforms and
bats, free of charge.
Voungey Johnson has made his bow
in Scranton, Penn., and the press of
that city is industriously puffing him.
Youngey is a great pitcher no one will
deny this but he is the hardest man to
handle that Lincoln had last year. He
is very fond of what he calls ''Cold Tea."'
In looking over the national league
batting averages of last year it will be
seen that Ouffy of the Bostons leads,

it must make a pitcher have the funny
feeling to face Thompson, Delehaunty,
Turner, Hallman, Cross and a few of
those kind of hitters.
The report comes from Jacksonville
that Bobby Carrutbers will manage the
team in that city. Carru there was at
one time considered a king pitcher in
the old American association. Unlike
the usual run of pitchers he devoted
much of his time to hitting and days
when he was not in the box he played
the outfield and is what is termed a
"hitter from his heart.'
Among the best players who gradu
ated out of the "Nebraska state league
which was organized in 1802 may bo
mentioned: Clark, the fast outfielder
of the Louisville team; Moran, of
tho Chicago club; Kennedy, of Lincoln;
Holihan, who played short for Sioux
City last year; Jo nes, Howo and Gate
wood, who are with St. Joe; McKibbon
and Moehler of Des Moines, and Fear
of Grand Rapids.
Some people imagine that the life of a
base ball player is tho snappiest kind of
a snap, and that to receive pay for play
ing the great national game is like
getting money from your wife's folks.
They seem to think that all tho sphere
tosser has to do is to get out on tho
diamond and play ball when tho season
opens, filling the rest of hisexistenco by
trying to make a corpse of time. Those
who have visited tho bail park this
spring, in the morning, when Manager
Ebrgbt had his colts at practice havo
seen their error in this regard. A regu
lar course of exerciso has been dished
up to tho players for the last three weeks
and it seems to have taken all tho gin
ger out of them; but after a time they
will feel the good effects of their hard
Last season there was not a second
baseman and catcher in the association
with the exception or Ebright and
Speer who could work the throw back
and get his man. Patrons of the game
will remember that when a man was at
first and another at third the instruc
tions were for the man at first to lead off
for second and coax a throw down to
Becond; and if the catcher did throw the
ball for tho man at third to score. The
teams worked this play in every city
until they struck Lincoln; and after
they had tried it several times on Ebright
and Speer they were told to look out, as
they were powerful sure on that return.
This season will be the same in that
respect, as last. In the Des Moines
exhibition games Traffley's Indians
tried to see if the Old Man and the Kid
were as sure on the throw as they were
last year, and they found they were.
