"Come again," says Nevada governor

RENO, Nev., July 5, 1910 (UP) - "The fighting game is not dead in Nevada," Gov. Dickerson told the United Press today.

"Billy Muldoon paid a compliment highly appreciated by Nevadans yesterday, when he referred to us as "the one remaining state in the union whose citizens are still free," said Dickerson. "Nevadans are proud of their liberties, and the sporting spirit, a prominent characteristic of the pioneers, forced to make a gamble on life, has not died out.


"I expect considerable agitation against boxing contests between this and the convening of the legislature, but it is widely known yesterday's contest was on the level, and I don't anticipate any movement to limit rounds of glove contests."
