Trio of Speeders Want to Take
Him on tor Relay Race Over
the Ten-Mile Distance
It looks natural to see Soldier King
around town again, and followers of
foot racinir are honing that some
cinder burner willshow up who is
able and willing to give the soldier a
brush. King left hereTEST March, and
has been on the Coast ever since, but
he did little running there, only meet
ing Jiramie Fitzgerald a couple of
times in two mile races.
King put on considerable welgU
while away, so Tuesday night he went
to Athletic Parkland went a mile at
s need, lust to see whether he had
Rone off any. He carried a watch
himself, and to his great surprise
found that at the end of the run it
marked 4:38 3-5. King thinks .that
this is correct, for he said he -never
felt better or went stronger in his
life, but if the clocking was accurate,
he certainly gave a remarkable per
formance, for the former Island re
cord, held by himseif, was 4:48 1-5.
King will not have any great diffi
culty In getting matches, for already
three runners are out with chal
lenges. A team composed of An-
tone Kaoo, Frame Scharsch and Nigel
Jackson wants to take King on' for
a 10-mile relay (event, and Jackson Is
out with an Individual challenge to
race King on the road over the Hale-
iwa-Walkiki course for a side bet of I
$50 or ' more. . " - ,' ''

There are some classy drivers in Honolulu who have a penchant for connecting with the high spots only, and
when they see the above picture, which was not made from a photograph, there is sure to be talk of organizing
a local team. Captain Frank Edwards and Ed. Lord would make a good team to string along with.
Effective, clever left-handed pitcters

In the season of 1911 there were ex

league and one of these did not finish
the season. Five can be said to have
done active service througnout- the
schedule. They, are Leifield, Sallee,
AJarquard, Wlltse and Rucker. The
work these five accomplished was briF

against-all clubs. There are twenty-

WEW TALES TOL
AT THE RINGSI
By A. W. PHELON.
A PORTABLE ATHLETIC CLUB.
Fight clubs may come and fight
clubs may go, but there will probably
never bq a boxing organization like
the Portable Athletic Club, which
struggled hard to live in the Middle
West a few short years since. It was
quite unique, unapproachable and, as
a rule, uncatchable. To this day the
pugilists who fought fo that club, the
fight fans who patronized it and the
sheriffs who tried to overtake it, tell
of it with shaking sides and unani
mously assert that its like will never
be seen again.
Cal Harris, a tall, slender fight pro
mDter, originally of Cleveland, was the
president, treasurer, matchmaker and
sprinter of the club. The equipment
of the club consisted of four slender
posts, with long screws on the lower
ehds, and a coil of rope that was? II.

hope that on dry land IKey-'ViTl show
the best turn of speed.'
- This afternoon's game starjLs at 4:15
and no admission will be -charged.
James Jaeger, president of the Hea
lani club, will hold the indicator, and
good sport is promised.
. The. teams will line up as' follows:

Wherever he could gain temporary
permission from local officials he an

-Hammond A. C." or the "Fairfield
A. C' according to his temporary
resting place would hold a boxing
carnrval in the immediate future. He
would get in the best presswork pos
sible in the near by city from which
his trade must be -drawn, engage a
varied and variegated set of boxers
and give his shqjv.l In some tiny hall,
summer garden or lodgeroom, the four
posts would be set up by the simple
process of driving the sharp ends into
the floor; the "ope would be strung
through holes in the posts; chairs
would be set in the corners; somebody
would be at the door and the ticket
window, and the Portable Athletic
Club would be in full swing. It only
swung once in each place the re
formers so numerous in tiny towns
would invariably arise and chase it
forth on or before its second evening.
Sometimes the reformers would get
the club- ejected three or four 'days
ahead of time and occasionally the
hostile posse would only arrive just
as the second show was about to be
gin. In this event, the audience would
go through doors or windows as best
it could; the fighters, as a rule, were
caDtured as they would be out of !
their street clothes and clad only in
boxing togs, and far in the distance
Mr. Harris, with the stakes and rope
coiled beneath his arm, would be dimly
descried as he fled uo the railroad
track. The Portable Athletic Club
had moved again.
The newspapers dubbed it "the
Portable A. C." after it had been
chased out of sixteen towns in Illi
nois, five in Wisconsin, nine in Indi
ana and three in Iowa. No matter
how often it was driven out, it reap
peared jauntily within a few days, lo
cating in some new burg and fitting in
the imminent future. Its shows were
not exactly gold mines the largest re
corded house was $319.55 and the gen
eral average was about $63 but the
club lived on. Its purses, of course,
were not of Jack Johnson size. Two
dollars was the price of a preliminary
! boxer's services and the windup men
from $10 to $25, according to the
'size of the house. Yet the club kept
moving; it always found boys willing
to do deadly battle for the tiny purses
and some of its fights were much
better than those you see in clubs
