FRIENDS ANXIOUS FOR
RYAN TO RETIRE
Tommy Ryan may now retire from
the fighting game. He will if he lis
tens to the advice of his most Intimate
friends in Chicago. He successfully
withstood Jack O'Brien's hid, for the
middleweight championship in Philadel
phia laat week. He nearly had O'Brien
out In the fifth, the bell alone saving
the Easterner. And at that Ryan was
not in the shape he would have him
self. It is kiiown that Ryan's friends dis
cussed the O'Brien fight for some time
before tho match was closed and almost
made the champion promise to retire
from the game after this bout The
only break in these plans wiit'oa-mai
Ryan, having made such a strong show
ing, may find It Impossible to force him
self down and out of the game he is
the master of after many years of fight
lng. One part of the plan talked f Is to
have him give over the title .to some
strong young fellow like Hugo Kelly,
who fought Jack O'Brien a draw in
Kansas City. Kelly is young and a
comer and while lacking a Ryan head,
is a tough middleweight customer. If
. . jr a 11 uiu 1 1 tiw
vclop Kelly. .
After Ryan boxed six rounds with
xwuy livip lie wa r ' - - j
and said to the writert
"Six rounds real fighting won't be as
hard as this."
It wasn't, for he finished strong
enough ,to accomplish what he set out
tO dO. . . " ' '
One thing which speaks against the
retirement proposition was the fact that
apparently Ryan let O'Brien stay in the
sixth.- Why did he do this? Did O'Brien
come back strong? "Or was there .in
mind a 20-round fight with this same
man? Or was Ryan tired himself?
Ryan's plan of battle was to cover
up for three or four rounds and then
come hard. - He did this. O'Brien sent
him down for the count In the fifth with
a right-hand lead to the stomach. It
is asked if this sting" didn't mean that
O'Brien lost v sight of a longer fight
possibility and tried to land the cham
pionship by the double-oross route. If
he did it was to his undoing, Just as
Eddie Santry is alleged to have failed
with Terry McOovern here. It looks as
though Ryan simply followed out his
plan of battle and cut loose In the fifth.
He had two rounds to go and eould
afford to work it fast.' He had strength
enough for that. O'Brien copped him a
lucky one. It stung Ryan to fight and
the picture of O'Brien hanging' on, pray
ing for the bell at the end of the fifth,
was the result. " .
Ryan drew down $2,500 as his share
of the fight . O'Brien -probably got no
share of the purse, being declared In on
the club, it is tnougnr-
Notwithstanding all the talk regard
ing the retirement of Ryan, the dis
patches state that a 20-round match has
been arranged between the two fighters,
to take place before the Tosemite club
of Ban Francisco this month.- Such a
contest "would be a star attraction and
every! effort la Jxlng -put forth tocllnch

POETRY INSPIRED
BY TWO PUGILISTS
A yoang poet'iiamed Potter-of Phila
delphia,; courted the pugilistic muse last
week and suddenly burst into . rhyme,
making Jack O'Brien and Tommy Ryan
the subjects of his story. Verily, when
prlxo fighters can Inaplrejnen to poetry
the art should be encouraged and care
fully fostered. The lines are full of
sentiment and runneth thus:
I.
Come all ye gallant pugilists,
"le coves wot loves a mill;" . ,
Hie now to. Philadelphia
To see both Jack and Gill.
-: . - . II.- ...
The scrap will be a sweet one,
Just like a donkey's trot.
Months and years will pass away
And will not be forgot. y
HI.
The good old town of Phllly, '
By some considered slow, -..
Has proved to be a fast one
In a pugilistic go. -
These scientific boxers, .
Now long been known to fame.
Will boom the art of- self-defense,
Uphold the manly game. -V.
If the most suspicious sire
8hould take his son along
His morals won't get ruffled
When he hears the mystic gong.
I do not know so fine a sight.
That stirs the dormant nerves.
Than two athletes in combat
With lightning Jabs and curves.
. vii. .
The ancient Romans and the Greeks
Pursued the . self same game.
And what a name in history
They've handed down to fame.

WRESTLING CRAZE
ANNOYS TACOMA
, (Journal Special SraTlce.)
r-Tacoma, Teb. 2.-r-Tacoma la to have
another wrestling -match as a natural
sequel to the Person-Youseft match here
two weeks ago. No sooner do the pro
fessional wrestlers get a foothold in a
town than they begin to work It. to
death as they have, done at Bellingham,
Reports from that city,-where wrestling
has been, the rage for - months, - and
where professional " , wrestlers have
reaped, a rich harvest, ' state that the
Jenklna-Gotch match', about which some
ugly , charges have been at least insin
uated, will prove the last bout In the
town of Bellingham. Tacoma was for a
time last year the center - of the mat
artists in the Northwest, but they were
speedily unable to draw a house here.
The double match between Chris Person
of Tacoma and Frits Herman of Seattle
pitted against Young Youseff. the Turk
from Montana, brought out a large
house here and Herman and Person have
now agreed to meet here 'on' Friday
evening for a $100' side bet.- Young
Youseff threw Herman here before, but
could not throw Person and lost huf
forfeit money.-
While wrestling -was all the rage in
Tacoma last year, several professionals
appeared here under assumed names, in
cluding Frank Gotch 'himself, who wres
tled Person here under the name of
Kennedy, and Davles, who refereed the
Jenklns-Gotch - match, who appeared
here tinder the name-of Hector. Wrest

Although official confirmation is lack
ing, the fact remains, nevertheless, that
thieves have been unusually busy In
Portland over Sunday. How many cases
of sneak thievery have been reported
the police refuse to state, but judging
by what can be seen and heard It Is
probable that the number Is not less
than. a dosen since Saturday.
The department is In a state of alarm
today because of the operations of the
busy burglar.; Its only hope' is chat he
will continue until he Is caught. He
seems to work in every portion of the
city, his specialty being to enter resi
dences during the absence of the family.
The burglar changed his field of oper
ations Sunday night and - succeeded . in
turning two -residences upside down
while the police "were expecting him to
go to work again on the east side.
Between the hours of 7:80 and 9:30
p. m. he broke into the homes of Marks
Rybke, a tailor, 496 Clay street, and
John Jarvta, 362 Thirteenth street. Jew
elry, was his reward.
The Rybke family left home about
7:30 o'clock and were gone until 9. When
they returned -they found '. their
house in complete- confusion. . Every
thing had been pulled from its place,
Bureau drawers were dumped on the
floor, the beds pulled out and even the
pillows and mattresses searched ' for
money. The thief got $15 in. money, a
gold watch, two pairs of opera glasses
and other articles of Jewelry, valued by
the owner at $200. The housebreaker
entered by prying open a back window.
He had pulled down the blinds, lighted
the lamp, and made himself at home.
Tho. same thief visited the Jarvis
home a short time previous, the fact
that the work waa similar, that the two
robberies occurred In the same neighbor
hood and about the same time satisfy
ing the police that the Jobs were both
done by one man. . .
The Jarvis family was also away from
home. Miss Jarvis returned at 6 o'clock
but did not enter the house. She pro
ceeded to make a visit toxrelatlves. The
blinds were then up and a lamp burning
dimly. At 8 o'clock Mrs. Jarvis re
turned and found the curtains drawn.
The house was turned topsy-turvey,
everything having been scattered on the
floor Just as waa done In the Rybtfe res
idence. Three watches,, two bracelets
and a chain were missing, but the thief
overlooked the money. It is thought
that he was frightened away by the ap
proach Of Mrs. Jarvis, and that he es
caped out the rear door, which was left
unlocked. The . intruder entered by
breaking a rear window opening on a
porch.
Mrs. M. J. Janney of-the Tamarack
boardlnghouse, 263 Sixth street, was
robbed of a watch and diamond ring
valued at $360, and $20 In money Bun
day forenoon by a sneak thief who en
tered her room while, she was in another
part of the house. A strange man who
applied for a job carrying In wood is
under suspicion. The police are working
on the case.
Jewelry valued at several hundred dol
lars was taken from the residence of J.
W. Hickman, a wholesale liquor dealer,
living at 600 Second Second street, Sat
urday. The matter was soon reported
to the police, and Detectives Day and
Welner recovered all of the booty in
various pawnshops where it had been
sold. The theft is said to have been
committed by a former inmate of the
state reform school. He waa arrested
and sent back to that Institution. Mr.
and Mrs. Hickman both refused to give
tne details or the robbery.
Another bold robbery occurred be
tween 8 and :S0 o'clock Saturday night
at the residence of D. C. Powell. 29
East Eighteenth street north. The
burglar climbed the back porch to Its
roof from where he. succeeded in open
ing a window. The house was thor
oughly ransacked. At first all that waa
missing was a raior and 25 cents in
money. Later it was discovered that
the burglar had taken a child's gold
neck chain and a child's gold band ring
on a chain set with rubies.
It is believed that the same house
sneak robbed' the home of Samuel
Veatch, 575 East Burnslde street, be
tween 4:30 and 8:$0 o'clock Saturday
evening. The family was away during
these hours, and the thief entered by
prying up a side window. He ran
sacked the house and stole a lady's gold
watch and a pair of gold bracelets set
with diamonds. Matches half-burned
were found on the floor, showing what
method the Intruder took to provide him
self with a light It Is believed that
the return of the family frightened him
away, because a sum of money and other
valuables were left untouched. Mr.
Veatch Is a conductor on the Southern
Pacific railroad.
To all appearances this burglar went
direct from the Veatch residence to the
Powell house, but a short distance away,
for his work appears much the same
in both cases.
At the home of Edward Campbell,
1 Willamette boulevard, Ockley Green,
thieves secured Jewelry valued at $40
Saturday night. Mr. Campbell and his
family were attending a party and upon
their return at 11:30 p. m. they entered
by the rear door. They heard the un
welcome Intruder rushing through the
house for the front and Mr. Campbell
started In pursuit around the house.
However, "the thief was too quick for
him and made his escape. Among the
articles taken was a pair of opera
glasses In pearl and gold belonging to
Mrs. Campbell.. During his residence of
three years at Ockley Green Mr. Camp
bell's house has twice been robbed, and
the former occupant also was twice vis
ited by burglars. The, detectives be
lleve that thla Job, also, was done by
the same smooth Individual Who visited
the other dwellings earlier In the evening-

Helena.' Mont., Feb. 2. F. Aug
ustus Helnse suffered the most
crushing defeat of his career when the
supreme court yesterday in a unanimous
opinion declared the Amalgamated Cop
per company to be not a trust, and
thereby released dividends upon 88 per
cent of the shares of the Boston & Mon
tana company, amounting to more than
$2,000,000. It was the action of John
MacQlnnls, who owns 100 of the 150,000
shares-of the Boston & Montana com
pany, which resulted in the receivership
proceedings against that constituent of
the Amalgamated, two years ago,Nand
Incidentally It was the cause of the re
cent shut down of the Amalgamated
properties In this state, while MacQln
nls Is nominal plaintiff HetnsW Is the
real power behind several ' suits. The
propriety of the action of the district
court in granting the injunction re
straining the payment of dividends by
the Amalgamated on its stoftk. held by
it in the Boston A Montana, amounting
to several million dollars, depends upon
two fundamental questions:
"Did the transaction by which the
Amalgamated acquired the majority of
shares in the Boston & Montana have
for Its purpose or result In the forma
tion of a trust, within the .meaning of
the law, and If not. Is it in violation of
the rights of the plaintiff (Heinse) for
the Amalgamated to own and vote
shares of stock in the Boston & Montana
so long as the power la not used to the
detriment of the plaintiff r Both are
answered In the negative. The right of
MacQlnnls as a private cltisen to bring
the suit on the ground that the Amal
gamated Is a trust is also denied. - The
court holds the same In the suit brought
by Lamm and MacQlnnls against the
Parrott, another Amalgamated constitu
