Chicago. Sept. 6. That George Hack
enschmldt quit cold in his match witrt
Frank Gotch, champion wrestler of the
world, and that the fiasco will put a
crimp in the grappling gamn In Chicago
for years to come, was the consensus
of opinion here today. That Jack Cur
ley, manager of the Russian Hen and
secretary of the Empire club which
staged the bout. Indulged in some par
ticularly smooth work in manipulation
of the llon'B end of the purse was de-
nted by none. .
The total receipts of the match ag
gregated $87,053, the hea-vlest in the
. history of the game. The club's ex
penses were 14000. Gotch, by previous
arrangement, received $21,600 and 60
per cent of the receipts from the sale
-ofr the moving pictures. Theoretically,
Hackenschmidt was to draw down 70
par cent of the remainder, amounting in
this case to $43,000. He did not get the
money. Curley paid mm jii.ooo casn
and $!S00 additional for training ex
. pen sea, leaving the astute manager the
very neat little sum of 129,937 to salt
down against a rainy day. Curley also
received a quarter of the club'a profits,
' bringing his total share up to J34.591.
to say nothing of one quarter of the
moving picture receipts.
Sack's Dys Are Over.
It Is generally believed that Hacken
schmidt, having received his payment in
advance, decided that there was little
-to be gained by going through an ardu-
ous course of training and really strug
gling against the Iowa strong man. Ha
quit, and' it is probable that his wres
tling days. In America at least, are
ended as a wrestler.
Strung along with hot dope about the
lion's fierce determination to gain the
mantle of the wrestling champion of tha
world the sporting public shelled out Its
coin in large gobs. It Is deemed highly
Improbable that it could be induced to
do so again.
Gotch will make a tour of the world,
starting in about two weeks. He arose
at 9:80 this morning and outlined his
plans to a United Press representative.
"I expected Hackenschmldt to make
a better showing," he said. "I never
worked harder preparing for a match
than I did for this. I thought sure we
would go the limit of three hoars at
least and was prepared to go ffve. For
"months I have endured the physical
exertion from three to five hours. "

"My future plans are perfected. I
will go to Humboldt at once to arrange
my affairs for a tour of America, Eng

Although the incessant rain of yes
terday Interfered with the opening of
the big harness race meeting at the
Country club. It did not keep awav a
half thousand of racegoers, who gath
ered at the track and watched the four
running rai-es put on by the manage
ment as n substitute for .the harness
events. Every one of the running
events saw a driving finish, and In all
of them the spectators wore on their
feet rrorn Mart to finish. The going
was sloppy and the horses and riders in
the rear resembled animated mud balls,
but that only added to the Interest dis
played in the races.
During tliu races the management an
nounced that while the rain kept up the
runners would be put on each after
noon to entertain the spectators. The
rain of Funday and yesterday has mad
the track exceedingly springy, and the
time made In the mud by the runners
is only an indication of how fast the
surface will be when the wind and sun
dry it for the trotters and pacers.
Old Campaigners in Baoes.
Several old campaigners on the west
ern tracks whose names are known from
Los Angeles to Banff, wer centered In the
races, and added considerable interest in
the events, two of which w;ere on tho
regular program for the afternoon,
while two were added to fill out the
In the first race, a half mile event,
Bell Reed captured first money with
Special Delivery second and Oyptes
third. The also Tans were Maxim
Wheeler and Miss PowelL The time
was 50 seconds, mighty good In the
heavy going. Tedwell, upon the Reed
horse, got off In the lead, with Special
Delivery in second place. The pair
made a two horse race of it, and it was
a whipping finish, with Bell passing
the stand a neck In the lead.
The veteran Al Powell slipped one
over on the other entries in the mile
dash. With Siscus scratched, Harka,
Abella and Soon faced the barrier. Pow
ell maneuvered Harka so that she got
away in the! lead, and was never In
danger, although Abaila challenged into
the Btretch and Powell had to urge
Harka to beat the brown mare off. Soon
was two lengths in the rear. The time
Host Club Rorse Wins.
Portland Hunt club's colors flashed
Into the lead In the second half mile
raoe when "Pike" Davis" old campaign
er and splendid hunter, J. H. Bennett,
captured first place under a good ride
by Jockey Molero. The big horse ran
neck and neck with Princess Viola Into
the stretch, when he gradually drew
away, and without urging, remained In
front, while Viola, under the whip,
staved off Jark Root. The time was
53 seconds. The also ran were Jane
Laurel and Miss Comerton.
What proved to be the feature of
the afternoon was the five elghths'-mlle
dash, which went to Platoon. Fix
horses most of them well known to race
followers, faced the starte. There was
considerable Jockeying at the post and
several false starts were caused by the
stubbornness of Platoon and Leondeo
sha. Finally Starter Tongue got the
entries awayln good shape, with Leon
deosha In front, Platoon In second place.
Len H. third and Hector In fourth po
sition. Foustlng was fifth and Redan
lasf. They opened into the stretch in
this order, when the race began for the
wire. Leo H., Platoon and Hector
gradually drew away from the others.
In the drive to the wire Platoon shook
Leo H. off and finished ahead by half
a length, with Powell compelled to use
the whip on Lea H. to get the place
from the fast coming Hector, who cap
tured show money. The time was 1:03,
considered fast on thV track, which by
this time was pretty soft.
