SAN FRANCISCO. Sept, 10. (Special.)
This is the day aftor the day after
James Edward Britt. the pride of Cali
fornia, fell bleeding and beaten before
the terrinc blows of Battling Nelson, the
Dane whose head is made of boiler iron
and whose chest and stomach are of cast
iron. Naturally, yesterday afternoon's
fight was the sole eubject of conversa
tion on the street and in the clubs to
day, and while there are some of the
Britt admirers who believe that Brltt can
yet whip the Hogewlsoh boy, tere are
hundreds who saw the battle "who are
willing to stake their all that Brltt neverl
saw the day he ooult? strike the colors of
the Chicago lad.
Few of the case-hardened fight-followers
ever saw a more terrific battle than
that of yesterday, and while it hurts the
majority of the Callfornians to aBmlt It,
they agree that Nelson has It on any boy
at 183 pounds in the boxing game today.
Jimmy Brltt is among those who do not
bdjeve that Nelson is the king of the
lightweights. I saw him this aftofnoon,
and while he is willing to give all the
credit in the world to Neleon for defeat
ing him, he still thinks he can boat
"I'm not going to hound Nelson for a
match," he said to me, "but I will want
another fight with him. Other fighters
have been knocked out, and they have
come again, and I think I can do the
same. Nelson is at the top of the ladder
and is entitled to all the money he can
make before he fights again for the title.
"When that time comes he will find mc
ready to meet him, and I feol confident
that 1 can give a better account of my
self. My hands wont back on me, and at
the end I was unable to hit him without
causing myself groat pain. You can say
that I'm not out of the game, and will
fight many times before I quit the ring."
Condition of Fighters.
Nelson was around last night and today
showing very little Indications that he
had gone through IS rounds of tremen
dous fighting. Aside from the flattened
noee and the cabbage-like ear, which are
marks of his previous battles, he has
hardly a sign to Indicate yesterday's
fight. Hie nose is pooled and swollen, and
his left- hand is done up with bandages,
but aside from this he is in splendid
Britt. on the other hand, has a pair of
painfully swollen hands, and, in addi
tion to his face being puffed and swollen,
his uppor lip protrudes as if he had been
ftung by a bee. It is Nelson's intention
to rest up for a time, and in view of tak
ing this rest, he has gone to Larkspur.
After he has rostod there, he will make
a tour of the East.
Points or the Battle.
A day's view of the fight has brought
out many things. It has shown that the
man .who Is constantly coming forward
is going much faster than the man who
Is backing up. In his battle with the
Dane, Brltt was always breaking ground,
and he never got a chance to set himself
for a punch, while Nelson was forever
coming forward and behind his ability
to deliver a terrific punch was the for
ward movement of his body.
Brltt outscienccd Nelson and outclev
ored him, but the best of his work was
done at long range, ami there never was
a time when his blows had enough steam
behind them to stop the Hegewisch lad.
The Dane simply would not be stopped.
Nothing but an explosion of dynamite
would have kept him from going for
ward. Perhaps in the momory of the present
generation there will be another such
battle, but 'I doubt it. All the hate, all
the bitter rancor that can accumulate In
the human breast, surged in the bosoms
of both fighters. The handshaking they
indulged In at the beginning was a farce
they wore looking over each other's
shoulders as they clutched with their
clumsy gloves, which later were to be
come an outlet to their feelings as they
smote. There was hatred in each blow,
in every folnt, in every Jab.
It was well that the gloves were not
keen-edged blades. Yet they might as
well have been, for the blows severed the
skin and brought almost as much blcxxL.
v Both boys fought as you would expect
the prohistoric animals to have fought,
"with a blind fury for more existence.
Brltt was the more intelligent animal of
the two. and for that reason the blows
that fell upon his Jaw and stomach
caused him to show quicker signs of dis
tress. Nelson, with his animal ability to ab
sorb punishment, seemed to gloat on it,
and the more punishment he received the
more he wanted. He was callous to
pain and shock, and though at times
his senses seemed to reel and falter,
there was always concealed behind
those supple shoulders that awful punch
that has sent all of the men he has faced
to the canvas. He is a modern savage
niui a. uvuiBiiuuus capacity 10 move lur-
ward In spite of a punishing opposition.
Brltt was more sensitive. If Nelson has
a seat of sensation, Britt could not find
it, and I don't believe there is a fighter
today who, at 133 pounds, ringside, can
And the spot that -will stop this "Terrible
This fight will end the fighting in this
place for some tlmG to come. Fight pro
moters are Inclined to lay off for a -while,
In spite of the fact that this 'fight has
given the game a, great boom. Naturally,
if Nelson fights another big battle, it will
be held here, for there is no other place
where such crowds can be gathered and
such money offered to the fighters.

Hugo K. Ahor. of San Francisco, grand
president of District Grand Lodge No. 4,
"independent Order B'nal B'rith. who has
been making a tour of the Northwest In
the Interest of his order, and who Is con.
sidered well Informed In matters pertain
ing to local politics of the California me
tropolis, spoke freely yesterday concern
ing the efforts of Republicans and Dem
ocrats to unite upon a candidate with
a view of encompassing the defeat of
Mayor Eugene E. Schmitz, the labor union
nominoe. Incidentally Mr. Asher had
considerable to say relative "to the mo
tives that have inspired political history
leading up to the present chaotic sit
uation. "To -give you a fairly correct concep
tion of the political outlook of San Fran
cisco, it would be necessary to go back
almost ten years. I would have to show
you a boss-ridden and bos?-govefned
municipality, with all its shortcomings,
its corruption and shame. A government
in which the Mayor was the figure-head,1
and the boss owned the Board. of Super
visors, the seat of governmental power.
I spoak. of course, of the rule, for clean
government was the exception.
Compliments James D. Phelan.
"Then came the administration of James
D. Phlan, and the adoption of a new
organic law for the municipality, the
new charier of the city. It gave great
power, too much power, as future events
proved, to the -Mayor, which made him
the absolute and responsible head of the
"It is a-charter that proceeds upon the
theory that thence forward It would be
impossible for anyone but a man of the
highest tj'pe of civic virtue and civic
ability to attain tl)e office of Mayor. The
charter worked satisfactorily while we
had that type of man In Mr. Phelan, but
Just at the end of Phelan's administra
tion there came the great teamsters
strike of San Francisco, which resulted
In the formation of a new political party,
the Labor Union parts. This brought
about the election of our present Mayor,
Eugene E. Schmitz, and his course in of
fice has quite changed the views of the
average citizen with reference to the vest
ing of almost autocratic power in one in
dividual. Administration Is Corrupt.
"All who know, and are not personally
interested in the present regime of San
Francisco will admit that Mr. Schmlts's
first administration was poor and tainted
by public scandal an'd that his second ad
ministration Is corrupt.
"During both of the elections that re
sulted In the return of Mr. Schmitz, the
old partfes had each a candidate and be
tween the two Mr. Schmitz had little
trouble In being elected. Of course, when
we of San Francisco say Schmitz, we
mean Mr. Ruef, and whon we saj' Ruef,
we mean Mr. Schmitz; they are inter
changeable terms, but Mr. Rucfs name
should really "be placed first, for he does
not only the campaigning for his can
didate, but muoh of his governing after
wards. "The best intentioned in the two old
parties are anxious for a combination be
tweon them that may result in sweeping
Mr. Schmitz and his administration out
of office, and they are trying to shape
their course In that direction. Those who
know th,e game of politics are quite sure
that unless such a combination is made,
Mr. Schmitz will again be reelected and
even with the combination they do not
underestimate his strength. Whether
such a combination will be made is still
Talks, of Ruef.
"As Mr; Ruef, who, two years ago, was
no small factor In the Republican con
vention, while absolutely dominating the
labor convention, will have less voice In
the former by reason of his recont defeat
"in the primaries; it Is likely that a mer
ger of the Schmitz opposition .may be
achieved. At any rate, matters are shap
ing themselves. In that direction.
"The labor convention has already met
and renominated Mr. Schmitz. The Dem
ocratic and Republican conventions are
not likely to meet until towards the ond
of this month, and if the expected takes
place, San Francisco will prepont the
most active political campaign it has scon
"These of course are only the views of
one whose very active political interest
is a matter of the past, for while I am
a member of the present Democratic con
vention, I am rather a looker-on than

Marine Garvin made his reappoa ranee at
the Vaughn-street grounds yesterday af
ternoon, and Just to show the Seals that
his week of rest had no 111 effects upon
his pitching ab.illty, the long fellow oent
them to their train with the third shut
out of the week tagged on their baggage.
The final glance at the scoreboard told
the tale of the fifth whitewash victory
of McCredie's men of the past week, for
the sum total 'of the scores registered
yesterday was two for the Giants and
naught for "Protestations" Wilson and
his crew from down 'Frisco way.
Esrfctf and Corbett blanked the Oakland
team in two games ast Monday, and
Jones, Cates and Garvin came through
with the hencoop wash on the San Fran
cisco club, and the other two games dur
ing the series were undecided extra In
ning contorts which were called on ac
count of darkness. From the above sum
mary of the Portland club's? performances
it may be readily seen that they smashed
a few records, ami In addition, have
climbed back to the .50) per cent mark,
which has been so difficult of attainment
during the past two days, when they bat
tled seven extra innings In two games
Garvin was pretty much the whole
menagerie In the, Anal contest, although
McHale and McLean ably assisted him
in preventing the scoring of a ran by
the Seals. With HlkJobraad on third and
Irwin on second in the fourth, by virtue
of a pass and a hit by pitcher and the
double steal, executed because Pcrrine
failed to notice that Spencer had fouled
the ball, of which they took advantage.
McHale captured Spencer's long fly and
by one of the prcttlost and most perfect
throws ever seen at the local park, caught
Hildebrand at the plate, completing a
double play and retired the side. It was
a great play, and Hlldy was so surprised
that he could hardly believe the ball bad
reached McLean's mits before he slid Into
Waldron and Mohlcr started trouble in
the eighth by leading off with a single
apiece, but clever work on the part of
McLean again prevontod them from get
ting within hailing distance of the plate.
The big fellow, who went into the game
in spite of the fact that his hand is not
thoroughly healed, capturod Hlldebrand's
foul near the stand and a few moments
later threw "Waldron out at third, when
that worthy and Kid Mohler were at
tempting to work a double steal.
Hltt's wlldivoss was practically respon
sible for tho two runs scored by Port
land In the third, for he walked three
men, by one of which he forced In the ;
first run scored by the locals, and allowed
a couple of safe hits, the second of which
was a scratchy one by Schlafly and scored
the second run.
Park Wilson's dilatory tactics sot the
bleachers after him. and they kopt up
a torrent of badinage during the whole
game, which plainly had the Seal leader

STORY OF H00 H00. -
Boiling -Arthur Johnson Tells It at
Hoo Hoo, the Concatenated Order of
Hoo Hoo, in all its mysticism, was dis
sected and Its precious history divulged
last night by Boiling Arthur Johnson,
Seer of the Hour of Ancients, before an
Intensely Interested audience, which filled
the Auditorium at the Lewis and Clark
Exposition. Mr. Johnson, who is general
staff representative of the American
Lumberman, published in Chicago. Is the
originator of Hoo Hoo, this mysterious
name which savors of the " Orient. The
story of Hoo Hoo, as given by Mr. John
son last night, was Illustrated with many
beautiful stereopticon views. This enter
tainment was extended to the members
and friends of the Concatenated Order of
To say that the story of Hoo Hoo, as
rendered by Mr. Johnson, Is Intensely in
teresting is hardly half enough. It was
absorbingly interesting, and those who
attended In the Auditorium last night
were given a treat which they will al
ways remember whenever the word Hoo
Hoo Is mentioned. To begin with, Mr.
Johnson Is an orator of note, and Is en.
dowed with a strong and pronounced
nse of the richest and most wholesome
humor. He has a personality which cxp-j
tlvatcs his "audience and leaves a lasting
impression. Mr. Johnson Is a natural as
well as cultivated speaker, and has a
charming delivery, distinct pronunciation,
and a concise manner of expression,
which never falls to hold the rapt atten
tion of his listeners.
As told last night, the words Hoo Hoo
came to Mr. Johnson one .morning. In the
year of 1E92. when he was arising from
hi? bed in the Hotel Midland, Kansas
City, Mo. They came to him In a sort of
a revelation, as described by Mr. John
son, as never before had ha heard of the
words Hoo Hoo. They preyed upon his
mind and later, while delayed In a rail
road wreck in Gurdon.' Ark., the Idea
occurred to him and a. party of lumber
men to form an order and name it after
Hoo Hoo. The Idea of using the black
cat as an emblem of the order was
taken from the ancient history of Egypt.
Mr. Johnson last night told (he story
of Hoo Hoo from tho events leading up
to Its beginning to the present day. The
Illustrations showed the scenes connected
with the history of the order, starting
with a view of the room In which the
words Hoo Hoo first came to Mr. John
son. Nearly all the Important events In
the history of the order are illustrated.
Mr. Johnson preceded his lecture by
reading a translation of a poem, supposed
to have been written in China. 1S00 yearsj.
ago. It was a poem -about the Chinese
lumbermen, who used the word Hoo Hoo
in connection with their vocation. Mr.
Johnson's attention was called to this pe
culiar coincidence at only a very recent
date. Ho read the poem to substantiate
his theory that the words Hoo Hoo cams
to him as a revelation. Music for the en
tertainment last night was furnished by
Parsons' orchestra, and there was also
singing by a quarter.
The illustrated rtory of Hoo Hoo has
been growing under Mr. Johnson's direc
tion since August. ISM, and was first pro
duced at the Broadway Theater, Denver,
September 12 of that year. Its patronage
was begun under the patronage of the
then snark. Nelson A. Gladding, of In
dianapolis, Ind., and since then has been
produced in many of the largest cities in
the United. States.

TELEPHONE SHOWS SPEED
Makes Down Trip From the Locks to
Portland in Three Hours and
Thirty Minutes Carried
With the two splendid bands of the
letter-carriers on board, one at either end
of the vessel, discoursing their best airs,
with banners and flags streaming out to
tne wind, and the Jolly, good-natured letter-carriers
and their friends to the num
ber of 617 on board, the steamer Telephone-
made her Initial run as an excur
sion boat up the Columbia to the Locks
and back yesterday.
It had been planned to leave at 3:15. but
on account of the slow arrival of some
of the excursion party, the steamer did
not get away until S:4i. at which time
she steamed away from the dock for her
first trip on the waters of tho Columbia.
At Cape Horn, auhrce-mlnute stop was
made to examine the machinery and ad
Just some of the pins. At Bonneville, a
stop of one hour and a half was made, to
give the carriers a chance to eat their
picnic lunches on shore. All the other
up-river boats passed her at this time, on
their way to the Locks- At 2:45 P. M.,
she left Bonneville for the Locks, passing
the other boats on their way back at
Moffatt's. about two miles below tho
Locks; this was at 3 P. M. She contin
ued on to the Locks, and, turning around
for home at 3:1S, arrived at the Oak-street
dock at 6:4S P. M., making the run down
in three hours and thirty minutes.
The carriers and their friends seemed
to be pleased, and were profuse In their
praise of the new steamer. Both Captain
Cochran and Captain E. W. Baughman
are delighted with her, and both expect
great things of her. Captain Cochran
has not as yet made any definite plans
for her run. but expects to do so soon.
The boat is the largest excursion steam
er on the river, and Is allowed to carry,
