Gill GETS DECISION
Has Holly Groggy, but Fails to
Knock Him Out.
LOSER CLINCHES OFTEN
Fight at Seattle Goes Twenty-One
Rounds Seats' Collapse Under
Crowd, but None Su- .
lers by Fall.
SEATTLE, Wash., July 23. Joe
Gans was given the decision over
Dave Holly at Pleasant Beach tonight
after an Interesting battle that went
the limit, 20 rounds. Holly Insisted on
clinching; repeatedly and used bis
weight to advantage.
Gans had his opponent groggy In the
last round, but could not put bim
down. During the second preliminary
a crowd kicked in a side of the pa
vilion and a tier of seats collapsed.
No one was seriously hurt.
The exhibition very much disap
pointed the crowd. Gans had absolute
ly no chance to show his science in
clean Ashling, but was forced
throughout to fight the battle at
which Holly is best. It was not until
the 18th round that Gans began to
make his work tell on - Holly. Then
Tie landed several rights and lefts
that drew blopd and closed one of
Early In the contest Gans received
a punch in the right eye that cut a
deep gash and a little later Holly
landed again and during the remain
der of the contest Gans was fighting:
wich one eye- closed. The last three
rounds were the fastest of the battle,
and it was then that the enmity be
tween the two fighters was shown. In
the last round Gans landed hard on
Holly and for a minute It looked as If
the Baltimore boxer would win.
Holly's great strength came to his
rescue, however, and he was able to
fight back and bring Gans into a
clinch. When the gong that marked
the close of the fight sounded the men
were clinched. '
Referee Morrison had no hesitancy
In awarding the decision co Gans aria
the decision met with almost universal
approval. Gans did all the leading,
blocking and clever work, while Holly
was on the defensive all the time.

In Vaudeville Houses
BY A. H. BALLARD
YOU MIGHT think that when I say
"the ten-cent houses," that I re
ferred to a class of theatrical en
tertainments that were inconsiderable.
The term Includes all. the Grand. Star
Pantages, Baker and Lyric Theaters,
which now constitute the sole attractions
that bid for popular favor in town.
It Is the good, old Summertime now In
earnest. Many of our regular citizens,
their wives and their families, are away
visiting at the Coast, basking on ocean
sands or breathing the clear mountain
air. But it is. a fact that the incoming
population during the hot weather days
is so large in Its entirety that the ac
tual number of people In Portland dur
ing July and August is greater than dur
ing the months of January and Febru
ary. Thus, the low-pmiced theaters havei
Just as big crowds from which to gather
their audiences as they have in the sup
posedly busy Winter months.
Again, the populace within our gates
at the present time of year is in a mea
sure unsettled strangers, visitors, sight
seers; and therefore, they are more read
ily . amenable to the allurements of
chance theatrical offerings. They are
not the regular theater-going patrons.
They are here in great part for amuse
ment alone, and right merrily and hope
fully can (and do) the theaters that are
now open, make their appeals to catch
THUS, AT PANTAGES last week, the
bill was excellent, particularly mere
torious, and therefore the response from
the public was immediate, and the box
office receipts were about twice as large
as during the week previous. The ' pres
ent week the till at Pantage's is up to
an excellent standard the bill that
opened yesterday afternoon. Much com
ment will be noised around regarding the
appearance of M. B. Curtis and com
pany, at this vaudeville theater, in a
condensed version of "Sam'l of Posen.
The veteran is here, and it is the same
old play. He is "packing 'em In" all
along the circuit, largely on account of
his reputation. Twenty years ago he was
a dude with diamonds, silk hat, etc He
still plays "Sam'l of Posen," and he still
draws the crowd. He Is having a theater
built for him In British Columbia. Mac
kenzie and Harland lead off the pro
gramme, with a jolly and swift-running
sketch, and the Garcia Sisters sing some
sweet duets and solos that are enticing
In reality. Will Eska, the "Phoenix of
the Wizards," does the regulation sleight-of-hand
stunts. Danny Ahearn startles
you as the phenomenal boy whistler.
Jean Wilson's agreeable baritone wells
forth In mellow richness in the Illus
trated song, "Star of My Life," and
Curtis and his confreres close the inter
esting performance. Rather good not
quite up to last week, but good enough
to please anyone. ,
EBITH DOMBY, with the assistance of
three other persons, enact the
sketch "Her Last Chance," as ths head
liner at the Grand. The new list of acts
for this week was Tbrought out yester
day afternoon, the usual day for making
the change for the week, and the sketch
made a hit. Cora Beach Turner In her
"Carisslma" act, with special scenery
and Individual drops painted here, caught
the enthusiasm of the assemblage. She
has two people helping her, and all are
clever. The Life Boat Quartette, lately
from San Francisco, four men who
know how to sing and have personalities
worth contemplating, presented some
music to charm and please the multitude.
Maude Beattl, late of the Tivoll, also
from San Francisco, is billed as a so
prano, and showed not only that she has
a dulcet voice, but physical perfections
that make one loath to leave the theater
after she has stepped out before the foot
lights. She astounded people. And Port
land is hard to wake up. Vivian and
Ryan, Roman ring artists, followed, and
James Burke sang the Illustrated song
"Sister," the "Terrible Kids" and their
brlndle bulldog friend (a film that proved
Itself "all the money" last week) Is re
peated this week by request.
PANNY FOLSOM (don't be afraid it
isn't Mrs. Grover Cleveland) sings
some illustrated songs with special drops
of her own design as the top-line spe
cialty at the Star this week. They are
presented artistically and are arranged
in detail to give many thrills of pleasure.
Al Johnson reels off a monologue of the
ordinary kind that hasn't much new in
It. The "Only Helen' 'sings, "I'm Long,
ing for You", with some pretty pictures
that help the Illusion and musical at
mosphere. . The farce this week Is en
titled "Three Men in a Cupboard", which
Vs sufficiently suggestive of the hilarity,
devilment,, burlesque and rollicking that
It contains. It engages the same artists
that appeared last week, and goes with
a vim and effort at nonsense that is
pleasing to the wayfarer out for an
LYRIC IS BECOMING a name that
stands In high repute In town. This
cozy theater Is calling attention to itself
by dint of sheer merit In the acting on
Its stage. They do not pretend to be
any great shakes In the magnitude of the
productions, but the players work like
Trojans, individually and collectively, and
the result 'is that the performances to be
seen three times a day at that playhouse
are notable for their strong and good
professional quality. "A Wife's Peril" is
the play this week a powerful and emo
tionally strenuous drama of the old
school in England. A wife deserts her
husband, and the usual trouble inter
venes before they are reunited over the
tender forgiveness brought about by the
thoughts of their child. The situations
are bright and dramatic, the dialogue
clean-cut, the comedy pungent, and the
acting generally good. It serves to give
Miss Howard, the leading woman, ample
opportunity to show that she is an emo
tional actress of considerable effective
ness. She has temperament, good looks,
industry and some charm. She is above
many leading women who assume to be
far her superiors.
PICTURES portraying the San Fran
cisco disaster and great fire are being
shown at the Baker Theater for the sec
ond week. B. S. La Muerte is owner and
manager of the collection, and it is the
best representation I have seen of the
effects of the great earthquake and fire.
There is some humor thrown into the lec
ture and occasional pictures of a brighter
nature put before the eyes of the audi
ence, that all may not be so terribly som
ber as the nature of the general exhibi
tion would necessarily otherwise be. Sky
scrapers swaying like reeds, the total col
lapse and destruction of block after block,
the population In its mad rush for safety,
the struggles of the heroic firemen, sol
diers and citizens, the utter ruin from
Barbary Coast to the Nob Hill jnansions,
shooting the vandals and looters, dyna
miting and cannonading the buildings,
Golden Gate Park covered with the tents
of millionaires who are now reduced to
poverty oh! it all makes up a harrowing
experience enough to suit the morbid in
stincts of anyone, and, of course, interest
ing merely as the faithful and correct rec-
ord of the worst catastrophe since the
