riations of last night's- fiasco. - Person

Here are a few: ..

fellows for a. grandstand finish.
' F1ghtng has . started again In Mew
Tork and Nelson, has received an offer
to box Jimmy Brltt at Madlnon Square.
He had to get out of this thing the best
-way he could;
Herrera did" not like the outlook and
was looking for a hole In the fence.
Nolan has been -thinking things over
ami be knows that Herrera Is the port
dangeroua man that Bat could meet.

i versions of the mystery. Knowing all
I do, I cannot help wondering If it is
not a case of too much Nolan. I am
I not decrying Mr. Nolan at, that. In the
St rnatn, I believe him to -be wellmeanlng
" and particularly loyal to any man he has
"1 Jn his" ear -He 1s suspicious to an ex-
if tent which makes him morbid. aniLin
addition he courts any kind of publicity.
t Ha loves 'the limelight and he does not
cars what the comments are so long as
1 he enjoys the full glare. Taking; the
. . two strong characteristics of Mr. Nolan
X .should ay that If ha could only keep
. In mind that It Is Nelson and not Nolan
who has to -do the fighting there would
v 1 be fewer complications and fewer
i: hitches. Nolan sees a Job in everything.
" "TTWiTXOOts TwrrrwiMa."
: He suspected big Jim Jef fries when
(i, Brltt and Nelson were to fcox in thexipen
air in San Francisco last September. If
OTebodyhad not given way to Mr.
J Nolan on that occasion there would have
' :' been no fight. Everything came Mr.
. - Nolan's Way. .And Mr. Nolan was voted
Va smart manager. It looked' last flight
mm It Hr. Nolan might have . varied Yhe
' performance by giving way to some
body else. I for one have always up
- held Nelson ss a man who feared neither
.-God nor devil., but who would fight any--1
thing1 -living -on anything Uks . equal
( iterma. A few months sgo 1 changed my
. views of .Mr. Battling Nelson, the
! durable Dane, to a certain extent. I
I made up my mind that there was one
(man at his own game that he did -not
care to meet and that Is Joe Qans. 1
'blamed Mr. Nolan for Nelson's reluw
tam-e then. I am inclined to blams him
f ifor Nelson's limits In last night's affair.
