CROSS WINS IN A 1
Shugrue Boxes His Best,
Too, but Bows After Ten
:>-,i:-h Cross, of the Kast Si?ie, outpoint?
ed "Young*4 Joe snugrue, of Jersey City,
after ten rounds of cyclonic boxing at the
Empire A. C., last night
Th.- boat was one of the best in many
moons, and if Shugrue wan beaten he area
far from disgraced. Cross, however,
gained the advantage in at leaet six of the
?ound?, and in the fouith period it ap?
peared ?is if he would win by a knockout
It was a much Improved cross who en?
tered the arena. He had all his cunning,
his Speed and hi.s hitting ability. When j
he landed the Jersey lad generally re- .
coiled under the shock. Try a*-- he might. I
and he tried his mightiest, Leach could
not land a finishing punch, and at th? end
Joe was there, smiling a weary, batteret
smile, but fighting with all his waning
There was no waste of time in prelimi?
nary sparring as the men toed the j
ecratch for the opening round. Croes
jabbed a light left for the head, and his
opponent dove to cover in a clinch ?and
ripped several short uppercuts through to
the face and 'aw.
Aft? r the break Shtigrue took a hand
In the landing and played B tattoo on tbe
dentist's face with a short, snappy left.
At close range- Cross had all the better
of the work, but Shugrue covered nicely
and avoided a lot of punishment.
Shugrue did th?? heavy work In the sec?
ond round and scored by a wide margin
He htoo'i off at long range, b'ixlng pret?
tily and landing almost at will. Hi? leads
were not powerful, but he landed three
clean punches to one. Cross was a trifle
?rented and lucked accuracy In his de?
livery. His heaviest swings whisked
through the empty air, ?rtd every miss ?
was punctuated by solid jolts on the face
The tide turned in the third round.
Croe? torceA the Issue, and had hi? op?
ponent holding on to avoid punishment.
It was in the following period, however,
I that the Ea?t Side boy showed at his beet.
I and the wonder Is that Shugrue lasted
I through until the bell.
Cross walked In, tipping off the ?pite
1 ful left hand leads that Shugrue shot at
j him. and, hurling home heavy right hand
l hooks and swings, soon had matters all
I his own way. Shugrue dove in and held
? for dear life, while LeBCh, with both hands
I free, rained thort arm punches into the
tx>dy. At last the bell clanged a welcome
After being sadly abused in the fifth
sr-ssli.r: Shugru?- assumed command again
In the sixth round. Me caught I/each com?
Ing In wide open, and ctulcker than light
nlng ?mashed bOHM a ?rushing right on
the tip of the chin. Cross reeled a pa OS.
?nit drove In again, booking that right
Shugrue, however, was n??t to he denied,
and stood In, attending fo the matter at
band. He seemed to Rain fr?-sh courage
with every fi'-sh punch landed, and it
assuiad m if be might ?pull oui a victory,
It was not to be J? oaal hi? heaviest

I LEGAL SHOT FIRED
IN BASEBALL WAR
| Way Now Open for a Test
Case on Much Mooted
1 Grand Rapids. Mich, March _0 ? The
first legal sho*. of the baseball war of 1914
was fired here to-day by the Federal
League in filing a petition with th? T'nlteJ
States District ?"out for the western dis?
trict of Michigan, asking for an Injunc?
tion to restrain William J. Killlfer, Jr.,
formerly catcher of the Philadelphia Na?
tionals, from playing baseball with any
other than the Chicago Federals.
Killifer signed a three-year contract
with the Chicago Federals, but afterward
was persuaded that tho reserve clause In
his old contract with ?he Philadelphia club
The stilt involve.?! the legality of the
reserve clause, long regarded as one of
the bulwarks of organized haseball. Tho
suit was brought In the Western Michi?
gan district because Killifer is a resident
of Paw Paw, Mich.
The complaint, which was signed by
?""hartes Weexhman, presid?-nt of the Chi
cago Redara1 League club, told of the
.signing of the contract by Killifer, who
S freist! to play for three years for the (*hi
engo Ferlerais for a total of |17fM#, or
IS.I3J Uli a year. The contract, a copy of
Which was attached to the potitlon for an
enjoining order, expressly stipulated, the
court wan informed, that Killifer agreed
to devote his entire time and attention to
the service of the Chicago Federals.
The court was Informed that JiV?0 w.s
advanced to Killifer on account, and was
accepted by him and Is still retained.
Kalluro to report for practice In accord?
ance with his contract was alleged against
The bill set forth that one of the
principal positions on a baseball team is
that of catcher: that on account of Us
Importance and of the extraordinary tjklll,
adaptability and training necessary for
the expert playing of this position It is
more dlttlcult to secure an expert catcher
than any of the other players."
A paragraph informed the court "that
I the defendant Is a baseball player, to
wlt.: A catcher, of unique and extraor?
dinary ?kill and expertness and of such
personal and Intellectual character that
his loss cannot be substantially compen?
sated for by the services of some other
The bill set forth that the ?hlcago Fed?
erals would suffer Irreparable Injury un?
less a restraining order was issue?! en?
joining Killifer from playing with clubs
other than the ?hlcago Federals.
naoanas Ol the absence of I'nlted States
Judgl Sessions from the city, It was Im
posulblt? to secure a temporary restraining
order, as originally planned. The prayer
for this was stricken from the bill, and
instead Airll 3 was fixed as the date for
the hearing on the question of a tempo?

Ritchie, lightweight champion of tbe
world, a pui se of IMM for a ten-round
bout at the Empire Athletic flub, of tills
city, some time In May, or, in fact,?
.whenever Ritchie sees ut to accept. Mor
i gan telegraphed his offer to the chana?
rlon yesterday afternoon.
The "silent one'' believes that Brltton
has more than an even chance to defeat
the champion over any distance, but more
especially ?n a short bout.
"Brltton," says Morgan, "is one of the
cleverest men In the lightweight division
to-day. He has gone along with few
| checks aud no serious reverses, and no
mnn in his own class has ever been uble
to defeat him. Ritchie may be a great
lighter, but he ha? shown conclusively
that he i? not a boxer. Brltton would box
him Into kinks.
"None of the lightweights will meet
Jack, and he has been forced to go out
of hi? class to secure engagements; but
even when giving away weight he has
been able to win handily.
"There Is no excuse for Ritchie declin?
ing this chance, but If he prefers n long
distance bout Britton will i>e equally glad
to sign articles."
The New York State amateur boxing
