Frank A. Qoteh. of Humboldt. Ia-.
rharrplon taavvwtrit wreetler of the
world, threw Gor- Roeber. of New
Tork. In two etraiirht fall at Merrill'
n.i Laat nlaht before a crowd that
f.i:l the hall to capacity. The bal
waa entirely too small to accommodate
all who wished to see tne famous lowaa
and conaueror of Hackenschmldt.
Koeber waa hardiy an even opponent
for Gotrh. even thouch he ttpa the beam
onlr two pounds shy of the champion's
mark, for the New Yorker, while
iron, well built young- athlete, can
not be said to compare with Gotch In
hi knowledge of wrestllna;.
ftMrt -ver la Daaarrr.
The champion simply toyed with his
burlr opponent, and time after time
bandied Koeser'a 16 potrnda as though
he were fondllnr a child. At other
times be rouKhed It with the New
York frappler. and on these occasions
rtAhr was prone to start whirlwind
tactics on the champion, only to find
fit the Iowa itlant waa more than his
equal at this. Gotrh came bark at Mm
si stronc that Roeber waa well satis
fied to resume the under position and
enjoy the few momentary resttne pe-
H-!i allowed htm by the champion.
Throuchout most of the match Gotch
smiled and the only moment the -golden
srln. for which he le so famous, left
bis face was when Roeber. assuming
trie oprer bold momentarily in the first
fall, attempted to fasten the toe bold
on the champion, whereupon Gotch'a
features assumed a tigerish expression,
and In one of the moat lla-htnlnir-like
traps the rhamplna burst Roebers hold,
catapulted Ms opponent clear across
the rtner. and was on Ms feet In a
twinkling-, and leaped on top of the
prostrate New Torker before that
worthy could realize what bad hap
Gotch'a quickness and agility were
marvelous. For a man pf his weight,
314 pounds, the champion leaped about
the ring as llthely and quickly as
class A tumbler of an acrobatlo team.
Rrss la Referee.
The champion secured the first fall
In 10 mlnutea and le eeconda and the
hold nd In accomplishing this was
a body lock and reverse Nelson. Tommy
Ryan, retire. 1 middleweight champion
rx.cillat of the world, and boxing In
structor .of the Multnomah Amateur
Athletic .". uh. waa referee and was
given almost as big an ovation aa waa
;otch wien be appeared. Ryan gave
every satisfaction and In the second fall
many thought the champion bad accom
plished a fall on Koeber In about two
minutes, but Ryan watched the position
of the grappiers closely, and Koeber
succeeded in evading the fall for the
lime being. However, at the end of six
minutes and Is seconds he succumbed
to a crotch hold and half Nelson. Tb
champion did not resort to his famous
toe bold, and thle evidently disappoint
ed some of the fans, who kept contin
ually calling for him to do so.
This hld Is a most cruel clutch and
It Is probably Just aa well that Gotch
resorted to etraiKht wrestling tactics
without bringing thla painful grip Into
play. At any rate those who saw the
match went away well satisfied with
bsvtng seen a first-class exhibition, for
the preliminaries were also first-rate

Tbe nrt of these was a bout be
tween local talent. Walter Arndt. who
haa appeared In a number of prelimi
naries In this vicinity, auccurabed in
one f.tll after IS mlnutea' wrestling,
to "Kn1" Williams. Thla bout earned
frequent applause, for the boys ap-r-e.tre.1
quite evenly matched.
In the next two preliminaries, Tou
sout Mahmout, a giant Turk, who la
said by Gotch to be the next best man
In the world to himself, appeared as
principal. Mahmout'a first opponent
wss Jack Root, a Portland baggage
smasher, who attempted to stay with
the giant Turk for IS minutes for a

his friends Imagined be would, for be

of the Turk for IA mlnutea and I acc

charged from the Twenty-second Regi
ment of the New York State Militia,
