Joe Waicott, ebon pugilist, and modern
gladiator, quailed when, Pete Grant ap
proached him in a corner of his training
quarters yesterday. ' .
"This gentleman," said the debonair
fight manager, as he Indicated my retir
ing self, "wishes to Interview you."
Mr. Waicott vras much flustered.
"Ma sakes, Mr. Grant," be expostulat
ed, "I'se no talker. You tell him some
thin', and I'll jlst nachelly keep punchin
the bag. But," he added, as Grant
turned away, "be sure and tell him I kin
beat that Peter Jackson nghtlnV
Before the squat, gross figure of the
Barbadoes Wonder swung a regulation
punching bag and to It Waicott, eager
to perform his part of the Interview,
turned his undivided attention. With
easy grace, the muscular arms beat the
leathern globe to and fro. At each re
bound a ready fist met It, and as it
flashed from side to side the tattoo grew
more rapid, until the drumming swelled
Into one continuous roar.
"Bifflty, blfflty, bang," sang the bag,
and as the fighter stepped In closer to his
work the rhythm changed. "Bifflty,
bang," it went; "bifflty, bang!"
In another corner another bag pattered
against its bulling platform under the
fistic energy of some minor light of the
pugilistic world, and In still another por
tion of the room two copper-hued gentle
men, clad in ragged bathing trunks and
gymnasium shoes, wrestled fiercely with
each other. For the training of a fighter
for a fight is a serious matter, and en
tails' the keeping of a stable of athletes,
on whom the pugilist may practice the
dizzying short-arm jolts, half-hooks and
swings with which his prospective oppo
nent is to be induced to He quiet while
the referee counts the decisive ten sec
Around the room stood various expo
nents of the sporting life, and as the
principals in the coming fight are of the
race who usually expiate their crimes by
being lynched, the exponents were chiefly
decided brunettes.
If He Only Beats the Race.
"If Ah can beat the races good on
Wednesday," said one of these to every
body, "I know what Ah 11 do Thursday
with ma money."
A nearby friend helped him along by
inquiring what would bo done with the
"Ah'H sure bet it all on Jackson," said
the Ethiopian gentleman defiantly. "Ah
can't see no way for him to lose."
And between 18 and 23 of the spectators
informed the Daniel in the lions' den that
he could bet with them.
"Walcott's going to be the favorite,"
said a snort at my elbow. "Ten to
The tumult of the wrestlers and the
minor bag-puncher had died away, but
still the black, bull-necked Waicott fought
his leathern foe. Apparently tireless, he
beat the bag In varying rhythms against
its platform for a full ten minutes longer,
and then, with a smash, behind which
Dressed all the giant muscles of his
mighty shoulders, he tore the bag from
its fastenings of Manila cord, and sent it
"bouncing across the room. "Get a new
rope for it." said he. and half a dozen
trainers and rubbers-down jumped to do
his bidding.
"Come on, you boxers." cried the
quencher of pugilistic ambitions, as he

raw-boned, slmlan-skulled, prognathous
negro arose to afford Waicott some prac
"Walcott's training hard this" time,
explained a fight follower to me. "He
didn't train to fight "Mysterious Billy'
Smith last month, because he knew he
could whip him easy."
"Is Jackson going to be a tough nut to
crack, then?" I queried.
Afraid of Jackson's Head.
"It Isn't that so much." the admirer of
Waicott hastened to explain, fearful of
making any admission that there- was a
question as to who would win. "but, you
see. Jackson fights in a crouch, with his
head down, and Waicott is afraid that he
may break his hand on Jackson's head.'
This is without a doubt the gospel truth.
Personally. I would as soon pound my
fist against a cannon ball as against the
cranium of either Mr. Waicott or Mr.
As the boxers mixed It a little, some
youth. Inexperienced In prize ring ways
laughed as Waicott blocked a slow lead
and slapped his opponent twice In the
"Gee!" said the youth.
"Sh!" came the sibilant warning fipm a
dozen bystanders, and Pete Grant ex
plained it.
"You see," said he. "when men are box
lng. they have to be very careful not to
let their tempers rise. It Is hard work
for men to play at fighting. Some men
can't help becoming Infuriated after box
lntr even one three-minute round. And so
no comment or laughing is allowed. This
helps the men to keep their tempers while
they are practicing."
It seems hard to believe that Waicott
could ever lose his temper. From the
fiercest mix-ups he always emerged smil
ing an expansive smile, measuring about
three feet In diameter. At times he would
bubble" over with mirth. His sparring
partner swung heavily on his Jaw, once,
twice, three times.
"Huh. huh!" giggled the burly African.
"Keep peggln away, huh, huh."
Presently wa proceeded to the training
quarters of Young Peter Jackson to give
him his official title and as we journeyed
on the street-car, I asked Pete Grant
about the betting.
Not Much. Money in Slsrkt Yet.
"Not much money in sight yet," he
said. "The colored sports will make the
betting, and they won't .start until within
21 hours of the fight. Walt till Wednes
day." At Jackson's headquarters we found the
pugilist busy skipping vigorously round
the gymnasium. Watching his every
movement stood a limited throng of men
who would gain wealth by predicting the
winner. Every movement of the swart,
amorphous-eared fighter was noted. The
bullet head, the massive shoulders, the
easy play of the muscles, the sturdy
trunk, flat abdomen and agile step, all
went to swell the total of his charms.
For his mind or morals the watchers
cared not, they asked only that he be a
fighting machine, a man in whom the lust
of battle grew with strife, and in whose
heart the yellow fear had never entered.
"Oh, but it'll be a bruising fight, all
right, all right," crowed a bediamoned,
patent-leathered and fancy-vested ex
jockey. Al Herford, Jackson's manager,
heard the remark and sighed. Herford
knows the value of a fight wherein two
bruisers, mixers or lnfighters are matched.
"If the game was open in New York,"
Tie complained, "and these two men were
matched, we'd have a $20,000 house. Both
Jackson and Waicott are known to be
men who gladly carry the fighting to
their opponent, and in the East the sports
would travel many a mile to see such a
In the ring Jackson was boxing with a
member of his training stable.
- "Jackson has had . three tries at Wal
oott," resumed tho ex-jockey. "If he
can't beat him this time, he'd better draw
the color line."
"He'll beat him easy," the next man
assured the Jockey. "Walcott's got a
Jonah in his corner. There's a feller
called Sad Sam handling a towel for Wai
cott that'll sure hoodoo aim."
"I dunno," insisted the doubtful horse
man. I dunno. I figure like this: Jack
son go$ an awful beatln from Waicott at
tneir last fight. A fighter never gits over
beatln. He never forgets it. Them
sore, spots Is always there, -and they .com
mence palnin' him whenever he steps into
the ring with the tame maa as gave 'cm
to him in the first place. When the fight
in' commences, and Joe begins dlggln' into
Peter, Peter will sure remember them
sore spots, and them sore, spots 11 beat
him sure."
The next man began searching his
clothes for money.
"If you think so," he began, "if them's

'I wouldn't bet. I done lose my money
already," said the Jockey. "An , anyway.
it's too tough a fight to bet on. I'm

The 13-year-old son of Gould raised his

WASCO, Or.. June IX (Spe
cial.) Eugene Cattron has been

handsome majority over C J.

Judge at the last state election.
Mr. Cattron is a native son. -was
born at Monmouth 37 years ago,
where he received his education
at Christian College. He is also
a graduate or the State Normal
School. He Is now serving hla
third term as Mayor of Wasco
and in a measure the city's
splendid financial showing Is due
to his honest, outspoken and
well-balanced executive abilities.
Politically Mr. Cattron is a

pany. according to tne terms of the city charter
and previous custom, attention was called
to the amendment of the Australian ballot
law, passed at the last Legislature, pro
viding that the cities of over 2000 inhab
itants should bold their municipal elec

raised that as the amended law was now
in effect, the elections in The Dalles
should be held under Its terms, rather
than under the provisions of the city
charter, obviating a conflict of legal
In order properly to inform -themselves
the Council referred the matter to the
Judiciary committee, consisting of At
torneys F. W. and H. S. Wilson, and G.
J. Farley, adjourning until the next day
when a report should be made. This
committee reported on the following even
ing, that the provisions of the amended
Australian ballot law practically repealed
tne election provisions in the city charter.
and advised the Council to proceed with
the announcement of Judges and clerks
and to post notices In the various . wards
according to the emergency clause in the
Australian law.
This advice was complied with, and the
Council announced that the ward meet
ings for the nomination of members would
be held in the several wards on the fol

nominations and to nominate a Mayor and
urty Treasurer. At the ward meeting all
retiring members were renominated with
the exception of H. S. Wilson, In whose

eral Impression being that owing to the
doubt attending the procedure no change
in me council was advisable.
At the mass meeting the next evenine so
much doubt was manifested concerning

lng that if later on It should be concluded
that this was not a lawful Council, the
