He selected thc brewery about ������i  half mile from town last evening and  with it a cottage near by. This  morning he was informed that, owing to illness in thc cottage, he  could not be accommodated there.  Now the Dane has about decided to  take quarters at a private hotel  in the town. He is looking for a  suitable place toelay.  Gans went over his seven miles of,,  road today and returned alittle before noon in splendid spirits. His  training quarters are complete and  a throng of visitors .watched him at  his exercise this morning. In an  exultation of spirits Gans said:  "I'll fight him in a ten.foot ring  if he likes." V  To the newspaper men he said :  'VPlease deny that_I am opposed to  any referee���������George Siler, Bat Mas-  terson, Eddie Graney���������they're all  good to me." I  While following Gans along the  load on horseback this morning Larry Sullivan Has thrown hard to the  ground.

JUobfcie Lundie, the clever lightweight boxer who gave Kid Krant  the money punch at Pleasant Beach,  will fight a 10-round preliminary  with Jack Clifford at Goldfield, Labor 'Day. Johnny Rcid, manager of  the little boxer, made tho final arrangements for the match yesterday  anil leaves Seattlc tonight for Gold-  field. Tom Corbctt will, accompany  him. Lunelie has been engaged to  train Nelson for his fight with Joe  Gans and .would have gone to Gold-  field, even if he was not billed for  a preliminary.
