Discarded His First Manager.
SAN FRANCISCO. Sept 23. Special.)
Cella Fay, the "woman of the under
world, who won the heart 61 Battling
Nelson and whose liberty from the coun
ty jail was secured with JS00 of the Dur
able Dane's easy money, appeared before
Superior Judge Lawlor this morning for
arraignment on a charge of grand lar
ceny. Her- attorney. General McGdwan,
asked for continuance to prepare a plea,
and was given until Tuesday. On that
date - if -the woman answers when her
nalne is called' her case will be set for
It was known that Cella Fay left the
city with. Battling Nelson after her re
lease from custody, and It was predicted
at that time that the' tenderloin had seen,
the last of the woman who had toyed with
men's hearts and pocketbooks until she
finally- landed In prison. She -reurned 'de
spite predictions, and seemed the least
concerned of any person In the courtroom
when advised of her rights in a felony
action. .When the formal arraignment
was concluded she left the hall of jus
tice in the company of her legal repre
sentative. Cella Fay Is the woman from whom
Teddy Murphy, ex-manager of Nelson
tried to wean the Dane by a flight east
ward -with the bank roll. Ho thought
Nelson would desert the woman and fol
low him. But his reckoning was wrong.
The pugilist sent a private detective in
stead. Murphy was overhauled In Stock
ton, there was a brief Jail session. Nel
son's money was restored to him, and in a
few days after he was lpoking for a new
manager. It was then (hat Billy Nolan
fell in for hl& fat plum.
Meanwhile Cella Fay had been operat
ing on her own account and for the al
leged theft of a pocket-book from Philip
Bauer, a traveling salesman, ran afoul
the police. She was arrested charged,
with the larceny of J1S0. and was- held
for trial before the Superior Court with
ball fixed at $500 cash. One of Battling
Nelson's first acts after winning his fight
with Jimmy Brltt was to visit the woman
at the county Jail and secure her release
from custody. ,

the big fellow was missing. He had gone
Into the clubhouse and donned his street

that he would again be called upon to
take his position in the batter's box.
The consequence was, with a man on third
and second, two men gone and a chance
to tie the score, McCredie was forced to
substitute Conrad, his "bush league'
catcher, who was easily retired. McLean
was due for a hit. and the game might
have "been pulled out of the fire then and
there, "but the sulky backstop thought
more of arranging his attire than of win

The new clubhouse is situated on the

afforded by the placid slough on tho cast

Battling Nelson Goes Route of
END-OF PUGILIST IN, SIGHT
Billy Delaney Picks Young Kauff-
man for a Coming Champion.
Dick Green and Sailor Kelly
Matched at Vancouver.
Without much effort the end of Battling
Nelson can be .seen. 4He has left San
Francisco, the scene of his hurried fistic
career, while his mud-sllriglng. vilifying
manager. Billy Nolan, has been arrested
for trying to beat a tailor's bill, and will
no doubt be compelled to tell what he
knows about the corruption fund which
he alleges was used to defeat the Ralston
bill. Nolan, and Nelson were about to
leave the state together, but the tailor
man got after the manager and he was ar
rested by the sheriff. While Nolan was
trying to fix up this matter he was served
with a summons to appear In Sacramento
before the grand pury.
In the meantime, so as not to be lone
some, the Battler picked up a young wo
man of the town and took her East with
him. This woman, so the prints have It.
had been under arrest for some time
charged with larceny. As soon as Nel
son could get his check cashed he put up
collateral ball for the woman and has
taken her with him as his traveling com
panion. Such action on the part of Nel
son has cost him most of the friends he
made Saturday afternoon In "the ring at
Colma. and those who had counted on a
long and brilliant career for the Dane,
frankly admit that they can see the hand
writing on the wall. Followers of the fist
ic game would have had no cause to quar
rel with Nelson had he gme East and
picked up all the easy money he could for
the next year. They would not have cared
very much about his taking up the stage
for a while, but when he starts out by
throwing himself away, they know he will
not last long.
It would be natural to suppose that after
Nelson had won the championship for
since the trimming that Mike (Twin) Sul
livan gave Joe Gans the other night, no
one stands In Nelson's way to the title
of lightweight champion he would take
some care of It The Dane seemingly does
not see any honor or very much money
In the title. In taking to' women and the
stage, the conqueror of Jimmy Brltt Is
simply following In the footsteps of John
L. Sullivan. Jim Corbott and the rest of
the small army of fighters who have be
come champions. All the champions, save
Jim Jeffries, "followed the siren song, and
all went to the bad. What saved Jeffries
was that he never took up and became In
volved In a scandal.
Nelson has started down the toboggan
and It will not take long for him to hook
up with some lad that will give him a lick
ing. He will have some money left, for
his father had that planted in Hegewisch
real estate- Nelson is a boy without edu
cation of any sort, and has just enough
natural shrewdness to carry him through
the world. He Is a boy that Is easily led.
and with a manager with character and
some manhood there would be yet a
chance for him.
The only real live bit of fight news
worth considering during the past week
was the announcement that Billy Delaney.
the man who made- Jim Corbett and Jim
Jeffries champions, had taken up Al
Kauffman, the Olympic Club heavy
weight, Kauffman came to Portland to
take part In the amateur boxing tourna
ment held in connection with the Lewis
and Clark Exposition, but as there were
no heavy-weights on tap, he was forced
to return without a battle- The kid is
only 19 years old, and while I have never
seen him In action. I was told while in
San Francisco that he was' the best heavy
weight ever turned out by the club. Since
he was taken up by Billy Delaney, Kauff
man has renounced his amateur rank and
has become a professional. As soon as
the announcement had been sent broad
cast over the world that Delaney had a
new champion In view, tho wires began
tingling with challenges. Marvin Hart,
who Is burdened with the belief that ha
Is the heavy-weight champion, was among
those who wanted to fight Kauffman.
Eugene Van Court, the Olympic Club
boxing Instructor, who has been the dis
coverer of all the clever boxers that the
club has turned out, found Kauffman and
was the first to pjroclalm him the succes
sor to Jim Jeffries. It was through Van
Court that Delaney became interested In
the big lad. The following shows how

Abe Attell, who Is matched to fight
Bowker. who whipped Frankle Nelll, has
returned to America. The' New York Tel
egraph says of his return:
The return of Tttell proved to be a big
surprise to every one along the Great
White Way. 'The little fellow dropped in
Saturday afternoon, and he brousht back
none of the airs of most of the fighters
who make a trip across the pond.
4 The trip waff something of a record
breaker. He has been gone little more
than the length of lime necessary to make
the round trip, yet he Is matched to fight
Bowker, the champion of England, before
the National Sporting Club, and has post
ed a side bet of 1000. The battle will
take place November 23.
"England If a great country," said At
tell, last night, "but it is some distance
from Broadway and Forty-second street
too far. In fact, and that le why I am
back. I-will return to England In about
five weeks, and the next time I come back
to New York It will be as a world's cham
pion. "Right now I want to arrange a fight
with Nelson. I will agree to fight him any
old time or place. It he will -make 130
pounds ringside, I will give him a side bet
of J5C0O, or any amount he wants. He has
been kicking. I hear about Gans, Gard
ner and a lot of others being too big for
him. and out of his class. I do not see
how he can refuse to fight me after that.
I 'will make any weight he does, and I'll
tight hint whenever he llkesv I'd rather
go to England and whip Bowker first hut
I'll fight Nelson flf-st If he wants to meet
me now. I'll fight him tomorrow, next
week, next month, or any time ha s&ysv
but he must agree to give aae a battle
some time and sign articles for a scrap.
I'm ths next noa he should fight; and I
think he will see It that way hlsaself:" '
' Attell leeks to he .la. aplendld shape. He
