course for Gould to adopt. At the

of the directors since May 21st, and a
regular election could not have tiken
place until May 2Sth.

Omaha Man Knocked Oat
In Great Shape.
Special to The AstoriaxJ
San Francisco, May 26. Joe
Choyinski, the well known local heavy
weight and Jack Davis, of Omaha,
fought to a finish with five-ounce
gloves at the Occidental Athletic club
to-night; 1,500 members were present
The mystery surrounding the record
of Davis caused the talent to be leary
in betting and as the result little
money changed hands, with the odds
of 2 to 1 with Choyinski on the long
In his fight with Jim Corbett he
demonstrated beyond all question that
he was nimble on his feet, and could
hit a terrific blow and was a glutton
for pirnishment. With these facts in
the wind the average sport attended
the exhibition to-night with, full ex

Choyinski entered the ring at 915,
and was soon followed by Davis. The
former weighed 165 pounds and the
latter tipped the beam at 170. Time
was called at 925. Both were of
about equal height, Choyinski looking
to be the heavier of the two, and both
were in perfect condition. The fight

furious ever witnessed in any athletic
club on the coast
In the second round both men were
very weak Choyinski having a shade
the better of it, using his left to good
advantage driving Davis' head back.
Just as the gong rang at the eighth
round Joe gave Davis a terrific left
hander under the chin that knocked
When he came to the scratch of the
9th round, he was so weak that
Choyinski had little difficulty in put
ting him to sleep. The Omaha man's
cleverness was a surprise, but he can
hardly be considered a good match for
so hard a hitter as Choyinski.
