renovated, every table being relined.
BT HUGH FULLERTON.
EW YORK. Sept. 11. Jack
Dempsey is the fastest big
man I ever have sen. In
some respects Jim Corbett, when at
his best, was faster on his feet.
Corbett, especially just prior to his
fight with Jeffries at Coney Island,
was declared to be the fastest
heavyweight the world ever has
known. Tommy Ryan, whose speed
of eye and hand ranked him as the
fastest man in that regard in ring
history, told me that Corbett was
as fast with his hands and as fast
to see an opening and to shove a
glove through it as any heavy
weight he ever saw.
Dempsey's speed of eye and hand
is even greater, yet queerly enough
his speed is deceptive. The spec
tators watching him box get the
idea that he is a bit slow. The
truth is that Dempsey wastes' less
motion than any boxer in history.
He bores in steadily, weaving for
ward with an odd shifting motfon
of head and body, and finishes fast,
fast as a streak. He wastes few
blows. But when he is ready to
launch a blow he jdrives it like a
streak of lightning.
Dempsey's Work Studied.
I studied Dempsey in fights, in
the gymnasium, in private, watch
ing his movements and then turned
to Wills to see how they compare,
Wills wastes a tremendous lot of
power and motion. He does not
compare with Dempsey in speed of
foot, does not shift as quickly and
he takes much more time in launch
ing his drives at least- the ones
that do harm. His fastest blow
seems to be a ripping left, to the
body, which he shoots out unex
pectedly. He almost murdered poor
Tut Jacksoirwith that blow, and
not because of his own timing or
his own speed in starting it, but
because the inexperienced boy from
Ohio ducked into it at every move.
With his right, which is his most
deadly blow. Wills hits very slowly;
with almost the old Peter Malrer
slowness at times. To get the full
power behind It he has to draw far
back to launch his attack and when
he Is planning such a punch he
slows up all over.
Wills' Poise On Feet Bad,
His poise on his feet is bad and he
appears inclined to tangle his feet
in moving ardund, a-s Willard did so
often, and his work in dancing in
a flash to get out of range if he de
cides to change plans. Wills is
positively awkward in retreating. In
fact, neither man ever has met a
fighter who could compel him to re
treat, eo that- they may lack prac
tice in that respect. Dempsey is
much the quicker in jumping in to
follow up an attack if he lands an
Both men being tremendously
powerful, have been used to forcing
the attack and boring in steadily,
following a victim around, so that
what will happen when they clash
depends upon their physical power.
Where they get this "brown pan-
J ther" stuff is a puzzle. There is
nothing pantnerisn aooui nr.
attack is not the sinuous, menacing
advance of Dempsey, but rather the
charge of a bull or the sprawling
leap of a lion. In fact, his wide
spreading arms remind one of the
lion. It is Dempsey who has the
feline style of assault.
Strength Is Compared.
In the question of strength I be
lieve that Dempsey is stronger of
leg, of back, of shoulder and of up
per arm. His conformation indi
cates that. Wills seems to have a
stronger forearm and wrist. The
only manner in which to judge the
force of their blows is what they
havA done. Wills mauled Tut Jack
son in slovenly, unfinished manner
almost foul. Dempsey roughed
Camentier somewhat and his at
tack upon the Frenchman was some
thing like Wills' attack on Jack
son but his blows were cleaner and
fairer. In fact. Dempsey witn snon
arm drives, traveling scarcely ten
inches, did more damage to Jess
Willard's huge hulk than Wills was
able to do to the slender Ohio negro
who was outweighed Zi pounas.
In his fight with Brennan in Mad-
innn Knuaro Garden Dempsey iin
ished his man almost exactly as
Wills finished Tut. Jackson, a hard
left to the stomach which .doubled
the opponent over, and a half-foul
blow on the kidneys tnai eprawiea
him on the floor. In delivering that
right on Jackson's back Wills hit
much harder than Dempsey did.
Watching the two men work with
sparring partners gives the idea that
Demosev hits harder. In fact, he
cannot pull a punch, although he
tries. His blows travel mucn less
distance than do those of Wills,
travel straighter to the open spot
and i seems to time them better,

NEW YORK, Sept. ll.-r-The Aus
tralian trio Gerald L. Patterson,
Pat O'Hara Wood and James O. An
derson maintained their places in
the all-comers' national lawn tennis
championship singles here today.
All won in straight sets. Patterson,
chiefly by the employment of crush
ing speed, defeated W. W. Ingra-
ham, the Rhode Island junior star,
6-3, 6-3 and 7-5. x -. '
Wood, by his accuracy, and his
ability to deliver the decisive shots
at the critical time, mastered Wil- i

tally 6-2, 6-4, 6-4. The match be
tween "Big Jim" Anderson and Lu

scarcely came irp to expectations.
Williams was nervous and did not

FISHING SEASON OPENS
FALL OPERATIONS ON CO
LUMBIA RIVER START.
ght Catch Reported Afternoon
and Night on Lower River;
1 2 Canneries to Operate.
ASTORIA, Or., Sept 11. (Spe
cial.) The fall fishing season on
the Columbia river opened at noon
yesterday with quite a number of
gillnetters operating. Several of
the traps and some of the middle
river seiners were at work. The
catch yesterday afternoon, and last
night was not large, the high boat
reporting1 about 700 pounds. Ac
cording to some of the packers the
weather is too fine for good fish
ing and no large catches are looked
for until the rains set in.
The heavy run of salmon in the
river at the close of the spring sea
son has gone up stream and the
wheels 'and seining grounds in the
upper Columbia are expected to
scoop them in As nearly as can be
ascertained the catch in the lower
river district was about evenly di
vided among the chinooks, sliver
sides and steelheads. The opening
prices were 3 cents a pound for
chinooks and silversides, and 6
cents for steelheads and green stur
geon and 7 cents for white sturgeon.
A few buyers, however, are said
to be paying 4 cents for silversides
and chinooks, so the average for
those classes of fish is about 3
cents. What it will be during the
balance of the packing period will
depend entirely on the snpply and
demand. Twelve canneries and at
least one cold storage plant are said
to be taking fish. One of the can
neries will be operated on the co
operative plan, the fishermen turn
ing in their catches and taking
their pay from the profits on the
sale of canned products.

Total of 28 Ballots Needed to Tie
Kirkwood and 29 Are Needed
to Defeat Him.
With only- 50 more precincts un
counted, John B. Coffey's chances
of overcoming the lead of R. J.
Kirkwood as a republican nominee
for the state legislature are slight.
At the close of the recount pro
ceedings last night he still needed
28 ballots in order to tie Kirkwood
and 29 to defeat him.
At one time last week Coffey had
cut the Kirkwood lead down to 21
votes, but he has been consistently
dropping behind since that time
At one time yesterday he had lost
five votes on the day s canvass, but
before nightfall had gained back
two, leaving a net loss of three.
To date Coffey has gained 70
votes and lost 58, Kirkwood gained
26 and lost 76, a net gain for Cof
fey of 62 votes. Kirkwood led by
90 votes on the official count.
