BT PICK SHARP.
Four of the rive matches that will
comprise the opening boxing card of
the season under the auspices of the
Portland boxing commission at the
Heilig theater next Wednesday night
hate becD arranged by Matchmaker
Hobby Evans. The fifth contest will
be signed today.
fr-'am Langford, the greatest negro
heavyweight of all times, who will
nii't "Tiny" Herman in the main
event of ten rounds limbered up at
the armory yesterday, where he will
train for his battle. The Boston tar
baby will do some boxing this
afternoon and settle down to real
work tomorrow, Evans is finding it
difficult to line up heavy sparring
partners for Sam, but hopes to have
a couple of bruisers on hand today.
The long ride from Chicago left Sam
stiff in the joints, but another day
and lie will be on his sea legs.
Herman Trains In Tacomn.
"Tiny" Herman will tlo the brunt of
his work in Tacoina at Chet Mcln
tyre's place, but will be here in time
for several days of boxing before
the local fans. After looking over
the available crop of heavyweights
that could be secured to box Lang
ford, Kvans came to the conclusion
that the big Astoria- heavyweight
wa the only man west of the rockies
who would be able to stand the gaff
with the famous colpred scrapper.
Kvans even went as far as New
York to get a suitable opponent, but
none were eager to test conclusions
with Sam. Herman is a rough mixer
and strong as a bull. His defense
i good and he has a heart that will
stand up under almost any kind of
"Tiny" Murk Improved.
"Tiny" is said to 'have improved
vastly since he fought a ten-round
draw with Frank Farmer here last
season. On that occasion many of
the fans were of the opinion that if
he. had sone in and roughed Frank
up a little more he would have
trimmed the Tai-oma boxer. It was
Herman's first fight against a man
of farmer's caliber and since that
time has been tak:ng them all on
and battering them down.
It seems that Leo Cross has taken
a powder, so the scheduled semi
wlndup between him and Ole Ander
son has been canceled. Young Sam
Langford, the San E'rancisco boy, who
gave Johnny Fiske a socking at the
-Milwatikie arena Wednesday night,
will meet Weldon Wing in the eight
round semi-final. Langford fought
like a champion against Fiske the
other night. Wing has been clamor
ing for another chance to get under
way and has promised to wade in and
battle or quit fighting.
Four, bantamweights, who aspire to
Billy Jlasnitt's crown, will show their
wares in the two six-round special
events. Hahy Blue, the Sacramento
tornado, will meet Frankie Howard
of Chicago, while Johnny Coy of Los
Angeles will meet Allie Taylor of
vJoe Andersonand Johnny Fiske are
both making the rounds with scars"
from their bouts Wednesday night.
Fiske has a cut over his eye and two
on his head that he will have to
give time to heal before he can box
again, while Anderson has a beautiful
The exhibition that Anderson put
up in his first ring battle is worthy
of comment and the same goes for
Bert Taylor, who was his opponent.
It was the latter's second professional
bout, but he has been working around
the Olympic gymnasium for nearly
six. months assimilating knowledge
by working with such men as Fred
Fulton, Gunboat Smith, Jack Thomp
son and lighter boxers of note.
As for Anderson he has had but
three or four weeks' work in a gym
nasium and picked up all that he
knew about mixing in that time. He
held up his hands like he had had a
dozen fights and hit clean. The beet
thing that he showed, however, was
that ho has a fighting heart. Joe
may never be a champion or even a
near-Pacific coast champion, but
there are a lot of so-called heavy
weight boxers who he will be able
to beat with a little more experience.

NERVY ENGINEER KILLED
HEROISM OF BUTTE RAILROAD

Forty Runaway Cars Crash Into
Gravel Train on Grade and
Six Deaths Result.
BUTTE. Mont., Sept. 30. The hero
ism of A. E. Muts, engineer, who
endeavored, despite the fact that he
was not on duty, to avert the crash,
was the outstanding feature of the
wreck late last night, caused when
40 cars of a westbound Chicago, Mil
waukee & St. Paul freight train broke
loose and started down grade near
Piedmont, east of this city, crashing
into a gravel train near Piedmont
station and causing the death of
Mutz and five other men.
Besides Mutz the victims were:
James Murray, Butte.
Art Digman. Missoula.
Roy Somnos, St. Paul.
R. Fassin, St. Paul, and two un
According to a Three Forks dis
patch, one of the unidentified men
may be C. A. Hanson. An address
found in a cigarette ease in his pos
session gave the address of 6316
Maple street, Omaha, Neb. He was
about 22 yearB old.
Engineer Mutz, who was not on
duty on the gravel train at the time,
was standing with his wife at the
station at Piedmont preparatory to
boarding a passenger train for Three
Forks. Observing the runaway cars
tearing down the hill, he jumped-into
the cab of a motor standing near by
and attempted to pull a string of
gravel cars, into which the runaway
afterward crashed, into a siding.
He had succeeded in getting most
of the train into the clear when ap
proaching cars struck the gravel cars
from the rear and a flying insulator
from an overhead power line passed
through the cab window and killed
Mutz. A car striking against the
power line pole is said to have sup
plied an Impetus to the missile which
killed the engineer.
As a result of the collision,
wrecked cars were piled more than
40 feet high for a distance of several
hundred yards and it probably will
be several days before the lust of the
wreckage is cleared.
