OFFERS TO THROW SIX
PRAXKLIX, Or SEATTLE, W ANTS
TO CLEAN OUT WRESTLERS.
Says He Will Guarantee to Pin Down
Six Portland Grapplers in
9 0 Minutes.
Portland wrestling fans have seen a
number of. wrestling bouts, the majority
of which .have been good, but next Wed
nesday night the stage of the Heillg the
ater will be the scene of a unique con
test. On that night Joe Carroll, of SeatUe.
manager of Dr. B. F. Roller and Charles
Franklin, the two Seattle grappling stars,
will bring the latter to Portland and send
him against six wrestlers of Portland.
Franklin agrees to throw each of them In
90 minutes of actual wrestling. This
match is the outcome of the recent visit
of Dr. Roller to Portland, and In a sense
was Inspired by a desire on the part of
Carroll to get at Eddie O'Connell, the
premier wrestler of his division In Port
land. When Carroll made his boast, he
believed he'd get O'Connell Into a bout,
but so far O'Connell has refused to have
anything to do with the proposition.
John Berg took Carroll at his word and
forced him to post a forfeit immediately
to guarantee the match, and both men
deposited the forfeit money, with the
sporting editor of The Oregonian. In a
letter to the promoters who will handle
the coming bout, Carroll writes as fol
lows: Seattle, Wash.. April T. Gentlemen:
Your proposition la all right and I will
cc-mply with your wishes aa rear aa I
possibly can. When I placed my money
the other night in Portland and said I had
a man that I would back against lany six
men In Portland, I did not do so as a bluff,
or to belittle any of the good wrestlers in
Portland. Far from It. 1 know Mr. Berg
is a first-class wrestler and I will also
add one of the best In the world at his
welght,but I know there are a few dubs
hanging around Portland, the same aa In
every town where wrestling Is going on,
and I wanted to give them a chance to
how just how good they really are.
I have noticed the past Winter many
Challenges from wrestlers down In that
country and have noticed that they always
make the cry that they cannot get matches.
Well, I do not figure that the Ave wrest
lers, cutslde of Mr. Berg, will make such
a showing against my man. I also figure
that If my man cannot defeat Berg in 90
minutes' wrestling, he cannot beat him at
all. I do not figure that the other Ave
will last 16 minutes each with my man.
Now. gentlemen, you - may or may not
know that I am a wrestler myself, but
I know it. and I ruesa Berg can tell you.
if asked. I have been in training all Win
ter and am better than at any time In the
past ten years. Now I do not say that I
am the unknown and do not intend to
unless I have to. My man's name is Frank
lin and I will bring him to Portland to
do this wrestling, providing he Is not hurt
In some way while training. Now I would
not want to bind myself down too tight,
fo.' my contract calls for' a man at 173
pounds and I am going to say that either
Franklin or myself will be the unknown.
That ought to suffice. Now you may
doubt my ability as a wrestler, but If so
I have $1000 that I will bet that I can
defeat Berg in an even match. He can have
the match after this match, even if I do
not wrestle the coming match m self. Or
I will wrestle any man on the Pacific
Coast for that amount.
I am not going East with Roller, owing
to the match at Portland on the 14th
Roller starts tomorrow night. He hurt his
knee in his match with Berg and so had
to cancel his match with Westergaarde
He will be at the ringside to challenge the
winner of the Gotch-Turk match. Of
course, when I said I would wrestle any
man on the Coaat. I do not Include Boiler
in that challenge. I will . have Dr. Roller
send a check to The Oregonian for my
forfeit. I want to say one thing, and that
is this: I am coming to Portland to win.
if I can. and If I cannot. I will lose like
a man and all 1 can says Is. that no mat
ter whether Franklin or myself does the
wrestling, you will see the best match
that ever took place In Portland. 1 hope
particularly that you can get Berg to get
O'Connell on and I will show you that
O'Connell Is overrated, and I will prove
it if he ever gets on that mat. I am will
ing to bet B0 that he will not be amongst
the alx. I will make him a present of 20
the minute he steps on the mat. So in
151, w.ay h wl" have a chance to win
70 before he starts wrestling. I want to
say. however, that I am confident, he will
not take ud any part of this offer, for he
win have numerous excuses why he does
not want to go on Anything I lave said
in this letter regarding him you may tell
