1 The Latest Germans
m In Sports Advance
t What the Wrestlers, Boxers and Base
Ball Artists Are Dping.
Apart from the offer of a 830,000
purse for Johnson nnd Langford,
scarcely a word has come over the
cables from London since the Lang
Langford fight. There never was a
big ring affair, in fact, with so little
aftermath. The inference is that
there is nothing further to tell and
nothing to argue about. Langford
polished off the Australian so com
pletely that Lang or Lang's friends
cannot think of anything on which
to basea demand for areturn match.
Now that society men have taken
up boxing and are inviting profes
sional pugilists to join them in the
pastime, there is danger of some of
the journeymen bruisers getting too
big for their gloves. It was all right
for Bobby Beresford and Drexcl of
the Upper Ten to have a little set-to
on their own account, but when
Tnnv Riddle of Philadelphia, who
is called ''the pugilistic champion of
thoFour Hundred," or something
like that, arranged to do a few
rounds with Packey McFarland he
started something that may result
in class distinctions arising among
the fellows who fight for a living.
It wouldn't be unlike McFarland to
tell his next challenger too and
get a social reputation.
And after all there is to bo no
world's championship wrestling
match between Frank Gotch, the
American Bear, and George Hack
enschmidt, the Russian Lion. At
least that is the latest report that is
being spread in hammerlock circles.
Hackenschmidt, they say, is
thoroughly disgruntled at the turn
affairs have taken, and he criticises
Gotch without reservation. He says
"Gotch has not only fooled me, ho
has fooled the, public. He gave out
that ho was debarred from wrestling
because of a promiso made his wife
Personally, when I heard this I did
. not press matters, but when it was
told that Gotch's wife had with
drawn her objections and that he
was prepared to defend his cham
pionship, I looked for an early meet
ing. He hasn't made the slighest
move towards accepting my dial
lengo, however; and as I am leaving
the country in tho near future, it is
verv evident there will bo no wrest'
ling match between U3 for a long
time at least." Jack Curley, man
ager of Hackenschmidt, declares
that Gotch has carefully avoided
Hackenschmidt from first to last.
"Since Gotch announced his re
turn to tho mat ho has confined
himself to wrestling hired men and
giving exhibitions," says Curley.
Sl The fact that "Duke" Farrell is
.'going south to coach the young
Yankee pitchers this season means
tho passing of Lou Criger from major
league ranks whero for years ho
shone as one of the greatest back
stops tho game ever produced. Chase

there is no place on tho team for tho
aged and respected veteran Criger.
No waivers have been asked on
Criger. He will in all probability
become a freo agent through tho club

March 1. Chaso has made no pro
