St. Paul, July 21On Wednesday
the owueinhlp of $11,000 of u twelve
thousand dollar purse aud the lnlddlo
welght championship of the world
will bo decided between James Hall
uid Robert Fitasimmoiis In what Is
expected to bo tho fiercest and most
scientific battle of the year.
If splendid physical condition, an
apparent bitter personal animosity aud
perrcotly fair auspices aro thoelement&
of a rattling good light, this ono will
be a b.tttle royal. It will occur under
the auspioesof the Minnesota Athletic
Club of Ht. Paul and not the Twin City
Club, as has been the erroneous impres
sion, aud this being the inaugural event
of the club the most elaborate arrange-
ucma jive wuu iii iue. aii octagonal
pavilion, with a seatlm? eunnnlrv nf 7 .

necaslon aud arranged In accordance
with sugvfestloiis fiom tho iirnmlimnt:

uiBuv is iiur, me ngnc win oe under
the cuuopy of heaven, but if otherwise
a waUrproof cauvas will be in reud
iuess and so arranged as to completely
shelter the amphitheater while freely
admitting (lie air.
Tlie iwttle will be to a finish iini nr
tho (iueengbtrry luloe, and will bo
knockout or no pmse. Tho club
name i the referee and reserves the rltrht
to withhold tha purse should the light
appear otherwise than on 1 s merits.
There is, howover, no indication but
that it will bo a battle for blood, as wolL
as for fame aud boodle. Both men are
conildont, as each has staked overy-
imiig uu uiu result.
i'iuslmmotis backs himself nnd linn
placed au outside bet of $0,000 with
Parson Davles, the backer of Hall.
Fitz-dmuions is training at White Hear
L.U1W, justouteitie this c tv. and Hall
does his fitting work at Bufolt, over the
Wisconsin border. The S1.500 forfeit
for appearance in ring costumo under

fully in sight and neither aspirant for
middle weight honors will run any
risk. Kach weighs to-dny within
three ounces of 150 pounds, aud tho
all tlay rest on Wednesday will add
lour or iivo pounds anil leave a good,
Whilo most of tho betB thus far havo
been at oven figures, Fitzsimmoiia
will liavo tho call from this lime for
ward. His victory without pain over
Jack Dempsey gives him prestige
which counts with tho average sport.
Tho fact that Hall's record contains a
defeat of Fitzslmmons cuts no figure
with the latter's friends. They believe
his story that ho was In his ( ugillstlc
lufauoy aud "laid dowu" for money,
and then they point to the fact that
Fitz easily whipped Hilly McCarthy,
tho Australian who reoantly basted
Hull In eight rounds. Fitzslmmons is
himself very confident, aud has com
municated this feeling to all with
whom ho lias come In contact. Tho
fact that "Parson" Daviea Is backing
Hall will induce many to follow hla
lead in pla 'ing their money, though
Davies has before now backed a loser.
He had in $500 of Hie Fltzjimmona
backing against Dempsey, but grew

hips and long, thin legs. But thoio
legs are wrapped with teudons and
sinews like wrought stoel, and thero is
no weak spot vlnible. His hands are
like mauls, und Ills wrists, measuring
eight inches, run iuto forearms so hard
aud tough as to niako a veritable list
from wrist to elbow. Hall Is of bolter
proportion, with no remarkable de
velopment unless It be that of his legs
aro unusually strong far his body. But
