' I la the Meeting With Johnson, but Coffroth Befttied and Declared There Will Be Either a Fight or a Forfeit. When Stanley Ketchel and hla manager, Wlllui Britt, arrived In Friaco Thursday night they lost no time In taking Fro moutr Coffroth to poitpone the date of the fight with Jack Johnson to October It Just whv this-delav waa aousht no body seems to know unless there Is some-thing the matter with Ketchel's hand, which he disabled In the recant bout with J'apke. Hut at any rate promoter woi- frdth AftAf a finnfiilltntlnn With JolWSOII, Informed Ketchel and Brltt that the fight would take place on October 12 and that If Ketchel was not ready to go on then Joimeon would receive a tuw iorien. wlilrh Pnfrrnti hl,i do Ketchel will have to meet Johnson on the original date or loae the above aum, together with a i-hance to win the heavyweight Chan.-plonship. Johnson la very decided In regard to this matter. He saya tie has acted In good faith with Ketchel and Brltt ejin win De m tne ring on me piviiiic duy ready to defend his title. The negro declares that as this match was mado 1-st raring Ketchel has had plenty of tui'p io prepare tor it, ana is nuimi unreasonable demand for a postponement. When Ketchel left New York Just after his bout with Langford had been called off he waa apparently In splendid oondl-tion. Tie said he waa absolutely fit for Lungford and declared that he could not improve on his condition ror me juiiubwi mill. He left this city last Saturday and did not stop off during his trip to California. With three weeks left for training purpurea before tackling Johnson. Ketchel s reauest for more time has caused ennaMrtriihle sneculatlon. Brltt, It is said, told a lending sportlii man iKKt wnnk that Ketehel'a right har !3 waa Vona" aim! that If he met Langford the latter would surely win. For that reason it has been pointed out mat wnen the bout was called off Ketchel and Brltt lost no time In starting for California. If Ketchela hand is really useless It Is foregone conclusion that Johnson will beat him easily. The big negro Is usually rendy to take advantage or most anything, and as Ketchel doesn't appear anxious to fight him on October 11 It is but natural for Johnson to refuse to make toncesslons, feeling as he does that he will catch the Michigan pugilist under a hand loon. Johnson is after money and Ketchel's S5000 forfeit is not to be overlooked by him. It is apparent therefore '.hat Ketchel will have to fight Johnsu'i aocordlng to the articles of agreement signed last spring. WOOL WINDER BAN FIBST. In the Autumn Handicap at Hamil-' ton Ontario.

A frood part of the equate had been played befnre they were ever ahlo to inaKe the first down. tTp to today some doubt had been entertained as to the kind of a team tho Texas Christian university would put up. Tho exhibition this evenlnK. however, dispelled all the shadows ami proved conclusively that this year's eleven was fill y equal, If not superior, to that of last season. With six of last year's men already In tho game ami Inn more who probably will return, the team will be a close contender for all the honors this season. The forward pass was used to great advantage by the local team and several clever trick pays retted good gains. Most of the long gains were made, however, bv short end brushes.
