THE COURIER. LOGAbPUGILlSM. 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 clared off. 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 pugilistic events. 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 a finish. Frank Parkington entered the ring as referee, and then came the fighters 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 me snouMeis oi a dozen or more thueiastic sports. en- 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. yes, he is an amateur. The Bee intimated that Manager Ebright offered to trade Gragg for Slage this must have grown in tho mind of S. V. Griswold. The opening game of the city league will take piece at M. street park next Monday evening between the Clarksons and the Herpolsheimers. Preston has not been in tho game foi some days at Louisville and it may be that he is hunting another job Ho would be a fast man in this league. Jacksonville has released its man ager and Devinny has charge of the team the first man he got hold of was Katz of last year's Rock Island club. The New York Howlers are making a terrible ado about the way Stafford is showing up at second base and it is pro bable that Johnnie Ward will be back with the team before a great while. Californians are after Chicago to sign Ebright. a phenomenal second base man of the Pacific slope. Boston Glnbe. They may as well look some where else Buck will stay in Lincoln.

Ebright caunts on Clem Kimerer, and he will probably develop into the star pitcher of this league. He has all the necessary qualifications of an A 1 pitcher, height, strength, weight, speed, good control, and above all a cool head. 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, and then comes three Philadelphia players go down thecolumn three names and you will find two more Phillies 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 work. 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.
