BOUTS SHORT BUTEXCITING Johnny Billeter, of Toledo, the champion 128 - pound wrestler of the world, won both his matches last night at the Oayety, defeating both W. J. Lewis, of Shelby vllle, and Rans Pulliam, of Indianapolis. Pul - liam, the local man, was taken on first In a handicap match, by the terms of which Billeter was to win a fall in fifteen minutes or forfeit 125. Pulllara was in poor condition, but nevertheless put up a stubborn fight for five minutes. Billeter won the fall in that time by twisting out of a leg lock and f orclng - Pulliam to bridge. The rest was easy for the Toledo man. W. J. Lewis, of Shelbyvllle, was almost as easy for the champion. Lewis some time ago stayed forty minute with Billeter at Shelbyvllle, but the champion claimed that he had an Injured finger and could not do his best work. Lewis expected to win last night's match, and consequently was on the aggressive part of the time. i : Billeter. Has Great Strength. Billeter was as strong as a bull, however, and had little trouble in throwing his man, obtaining the first fall In seven minutes and the second In three. By the terms he was to win two out of three falls. "Here" Clark, the local wrestler and star football player, refereed both matches. Freddie Cole and Fred Laffen acted as time - keepers. Billeter and his manager are now going on a tour which will take them to the Pacific coast. On their return in a few months, they will in all probability stop In Indianapolis for a time and arrange matches with Pulliam and Billy Schober, both of whom are anxious to be tried out when In Condition. hen in tone .

EXPECTED TO MAKE GOOD Reports from Macon, - Ga., where the Cleveland baseball team s doing its spring training, phow : that Indianapolis fans are likely to' be disappointed m their hopes of having Jake Thlelman with them again In 1907. Thlelman was drafted last fall by the Naps.' but at the time Indianapolis and American Association fans did not take the move seriously. Of late, howeverj developments have shown that Thlelman may be kept. The last werd from Macon was to the effect that "pitcher Thlelman gives promise of developing Into a wonder."' ' : With such news as this, Indianapolis fans have cause to do some worrying. Thlelman was: counted on to be the mainstay of the local pltchlngt staff this season. His work last season, when he was in form, stamped htm as one of the best In the association, and he was expected to be at his best In 1307. Thlelman was well liked In Indlanapo - livand although local fans will be sorry to lose him, they will at the same time be glad to see him make good with what should be one of the greatest teams in the country1 this season. Cleveland has strengthened during the winter montns. and is expected by many to win the American League pennant. - Brlggs Trains with Boxers. Pitcher "Buttons" Brlggs," obtained by Indianapolis from Brooklyn, has been getting into shape the . last few weeks by working out on the road and the gym nasium with 'Cy" Flynn, the Cleveland prizefighter. Handball and long distance running1 have aided Brlggs ma terially. He has not played ball for two years, but with the work he has done, and the preparation at French Lick Springs next week, he should be In hla oia - time rornu - TWO MORE PURDUE GAMES.
