The feature bout was clinched after much dickering on the part of "Tex" Hollistcr and it is expected to bo one of the most sensational arguments ever witnessed within the squared circle showing local fights. .There is a long story connected with the fistic career of Jce Ferraro of Palo Alto and Billy Llndes, of Pottsville. These two punchers were once stablemates, but when each slugger, due to consistent victories, gained county-wide recognition, there arose the question. "Who will occupy the King Chair at this royal house of punch?" Both wanted this throne and bitter feeling toward each oth er gained fever heat until one day It was only the interference of seconds and attendants that prevented a fight many fans would have paid cash to witness. .Both boys are anxiously await ing tire starting gong in tonight's battle and there should be plenty of fireworks. Neither of them wants a decision victory. Both have said: "A knockout or nothing at all." Newsboy Ben Perry of Hazleton, working his way up for another shot at Joe Borelli, the leader of ths class, will take on the well known "Fumbler" Martin of New Philadelphia in the semi-windup. These two dynamoes of punch are clever mittmen who rate windup spots but were forced into the semi only of the importance the windup bout shares which is the feature contest to decide the leadership of the county. The popular Al Mack of Min-ersville will attempt to outpunch the tough, aggressive, Giffje Ken- vin of Mahanoy City, in the main preliminary. Kenvln is known as one of the toughest boys in the coal regions and anyone who has seen him go down in defeat has marveled at his stamina and limit of en durance for taking punishment before being counted out. This bout will probably end in a knockout as round-house punches will predom inate. . ... Joe Straiges of Seltzer City, will pair off with Rex Fallable of Haz feton, in the second bout. Fallable is a crafty ringman who packs a J sleep-producer In either mitt. It will require an alert and clever Straiges to get "by" this highly touted Hazleton boy who appeared here during the open air season. Midget Cool of New Street, latest product of the "Bud" Haskin stable, who won his initial bout here last week, will oppose Young Casper, of Shenandoah. Cool will be trading punches with a more experienced opponent but local dopestars who have watched the "Midget" , in training declare this youngster will be classed with the leaders here In a short time.
