Boston. Mass.. Nov. 14. The second
and closing day of the Boston terrier show

success, showing an unusually good at
tendance despite bad weather. Though
the Important classes were well finished
up, to-day was given over to the Breeders

LEACH CROSS KNOCKS- OUT
One Bound Person Looks Full of
Fight When Deciding
Leach' Cross, the Bowery dentist,
knocked out One Hound Hogan of Cali
fornia In the third round of a scheduled
ten round bout at the Forty-fourth Street
Sporting Club last night. Hogan was eas
ily outboxed In the first round, but In the
second In a desperate attempt to beat
Cross down by sheer strength he shot his
bolt, so that In spite of another rally at
the beginning of the third round he had
little or nothing left. He had Cross under
fire for a moment when suddenly the New
Yorker caught the One Round person with
a one-two punch, a left to the Jaw and a
short powerful right hand swing to the
point of the chin. Hogan fell backward
to the floor and was counted out. Hogan
didn't recover his bearings until he had
been helped out of the ring. Then he
wanted to know how It all had happened.
As a fighter Hogan never amounted to
much and' his signal defeat did not come
In the nature of a shock.
The biggest crowd since the Wolgast
Brown battlo last year packed the arena
to the doors. Every seat was occupied
and many late comers had to stand up.
The management charged 12, $3 and IS
for tickets and the receipts amounted to
more than 6,000. After several rattling
four round bouts. Cross and Hogan up
peared and1 got on the scales at the ring
side. Both men tipped the beam at 137 pounds.
Young Corbett was the referee. Bight
after the handshake Hogan missed with
a hard right. Cross met him with swift
hooks In the body and a clinch followed.
Cross stepped In with a left uppercut on
the Jaw and' Hogan staggered to the ropes.
He mixed It as .Cross followed with a
right hander on the neck and then
clinched. Cross kept on fighting at close
quarters until Hogan held on tightly. On
the break Cross resumed his fierce at
tack, paying no attention to Hogan's wild
swings. Hogan was sparring for wind
at the gong and Cross had the round on
work and blows landed.
When the second round began they ex
changed lefts and walked Into a half
clinch. Hogan forcing Cross to the rones.
Hogan scored with two hard1 lefts to the
face and Cross clinched. Again Hogan
landed several hot Jabs and hooked th
right Into the stomach. Cross clinching and
covering up. Hogan planted nnother stiff
left to the mouth, CroRs punching him In
the stomach with both hands until locked.
In a fierce mix Crops let go two right
banders that made Hogan reel, but he
clinched as Cross repeated his attack.
Hogan rallied and was slugging like a
blacksmith when time was up. Cross had
the round by a small margin.
Hogan ran out of his corner for the
third round and with a great right hander
on the Jaw he made Cross back Into the
rnpro, Hogan went after him with a
furious assault and' Cross used his foot to
get away. Suddenly Cross turned and
with a left hook followed by a terrific
right hand swing flush on th point of the
Jaw, he flattened Hogan on his back. Ho
gan's head hit the canvas with a crnsh
and he lay motionless for a few seconds.
Then as the referee counted the sixth sec
ond1 Hogan weakly tried to lift his head,
hut It was all over. He was rounted out
before he know what had happened. Cross
helped him to arise and then left tho ring
In tho other bouts Willie Chandter put
It nil over Harry Winters In six rounds,
the latter being knocked down four times.
Billy Meyers outpointed Young Itaskln In
four rounds. Jimmy Lennon defeated
Young Goeckte over a similar route, while
Young ni It on and Young Foley boxed a
grilling four round draw.

BIG SHAKEUP IN GIANTS;
O'BRIEN ANDWHALEN OUT
Secrclnry nnd Treasurer Itcslgn
Their Offices Ono Man
HE IS II. n. McCUTCHEON
Old Friend of Brush, He Mdkcs
No Comment Also a Now
The business management of tho New
York National League club, which pays
salaries to the alants, was subjected to
rudlcal changes yesterday, Joseph D.
O'Brien, It was announced' nt the club's
ofilces In the Fifth Avenue Building, has
resigned the position of secretary, while
former Corporation Counsel John Whatcn
has been relieved of the duties or treas
urer at his own request, though still re
maining a member of the board of direc
tors. II. N.' Hempstead of Indianapolis,
John T. Brush's son-in-law, has been
elected vice-president of the club.
O'Brien's successor Is 11. H. McCut
cheon, an old personal friend1 of Mr.
Brush, and Edward Brannlck, who was
O'Brien's assistant, will be Secretary Mc
Cutcheon's right hand man. Mr. Brush
has been reelected president and the old
board of directors has been reelected, too.
Secretary MoCutcheon was seen by Tub
Son man at the club's offlocs late yester
day afternoon. He said he didn't care
to say anything about himself, except that
he had known Mr. Brush since 1888 and
that It was not until a few days ago that
Mr. Brush asked him to accept the com
bined offlce of secretary and treasurer.
"I have consented to fill this ofllce as
a favor to Mr. Brush." he said. "I know
very little nboUt baseball affairs, but will
begin to learn tho ropes Immediately with
the assistance of Mr. Brannlck. I cannot
say why Sir. O'Brien resigned. As a mut
ter of fact I do not know. But Mr. O'Brien
probably will be here to-morrow and may
have something to say."
The resignation of O'Brien, which was
announced In yesterday's. Sun, came In the
nature of a big surprise.' He left here on
Saturday for the minor league meeting
In Mllwnukce, presumably for the purpose
of securing some new players for the
Giants. O'Brien Is not In poor health
and the fact that he has Just leased an
apartment here for a year Is taken to
mean that his decision to withdraw from
the affairs of the club has been hastily
made. O'ltrlen was selected by Mr. Brush
to succeed William Oray as secretnry a
year ago. He was formerly president of
the American Association, but was prac
tically out of baseball when he received
the offer from the owner of tho Giants.
O'Brien, a thoroughly capable baseball
man. seemed to be wclP fitted for his new
position and maijie many friends. He
travelled with the Giants on all of their
trips and during the recent world's series
he was extremely active In looking after
the business affairs of the club.
It was rumored yesterday that there
had been some friction between O'Brien
and Vice-President Hempstead during the
world's series and that O'Brien was forced
to resign, but this report could not be
confirmed. Hempstead left here for the
West last night. Some time ago It was
common gossip that O'Brien might be
electee president of tho National League
In place of Thomas J. Lynch, but when
asked' about the matter O'Brien said he
wouldn't even think of such a thing un
less he could be elected for ten years. In
fact O'Brien, nt that time, seemed to feel
confident that he would remain secretary
of the club for an Indefinite period.
Mr. Whalen explained to The Sun man
yesterday morning that, owing to the
death of several relatives, lie had asked
Mr. Brush to relieve him. Mr. Whalen
stated that the duties of treasurer of the
ball club had steadily Increased until he
found that he was taking too much time
away from his law practice. He declared
that he did not know of any friction which
had led to the resignation of O'Brien.
"I shall remain a director of tho club."
he continued, "and do all 1 can to help
Mr. Brush, who Ns still very 111. Mr.
Brush has not been suffering from pneu
monia, but has been seriously crippled
since an automobile accident In Harlem
In which he auslilned a broken hip. Mr.
Brush, In spite of his Illness, Is In full
charge of the club's affairs, which are In
splendid shape. There arc no debts and
the club Is In need of no assistance. If
Mr. Brush should be compelled to give up
active Interest in, baseball there might be
serious results. He lovfs the game and
takes pride In the fortunes of the Giants."
When the nCws of O'Brien's withdrawal
I became known yesterday, an attempt was
made to verify It. Mr. Brush's apart
ment In tlie Hotel Imperial was called up,
with the result that the word camo that
news would be handed out at the club's
offices In the Fifth Avenue Building.
When the offices were called up the In
formation was forthcoming that nothing
WK-x known of o Brten's status, that no
body believed that he was out of the
rluh and that It was Impossible to say
when there would be either a denla' or a
confirmation of the story. A visit to the
offices later In the day developed tho
same air of mystery. Assistant Secretary
Jlrannlck said that he knew nothing and
conifquently rotildn't say a word. At I
o'clock the new secretary, MrCutcheon,
arrived and formally took charge of the
It was the prevalent opinion last night
that Brannlck would be the real secretary,
Inasmuch as he has gained much practical
experience under O'Brien nnd Oray and
knows baseball from A to 7.. It Is prob
able that Manager JIcGraw will attend to
the signing of the players and wHll send
out contracts for next year after consult
ing with President Brush. McCutcheon
will look after the finances and will travel
with the Giants as a sort of business man
ager. Hempstead will supervise every
thing except the players. Mr, Brush
could not be seen In connection with the

BRICKLEY FAILS SIX TIMES.
Sncary Ball Too HI Handicap for
Harvard Toe' Artist.
CAMnmna. Mass., Nov. 14. The Har
vard varsity tram was on a wet and
Bousy field for an hour and a half to-day
playing with a slippery ball. Both the
varsity And the first substitutes worked
against the second team, but there was
much fumbling nnd no scoring. Brlckley
tried to kick some field goals, but each
of his six attempts to drive the soggy
leather between the scrub team's uprights
Before the scrimmage the backs and
ends worked with a football that had been
purposely soaked In water, although this
hardly was necessary In the afternoon
drlzsle. There was a lot of muffing, and
while the exhibition was poor, the backs
had a lot of much needed practice. The
regular team played to-day, Wendell be
ing tn tho lineup longer than at any time
this week. He finally was replaced by
Bradlce, but not until he had done his
share of the work,. Trumbull was In tho
rusn line at his regular nlaeo during tne
entire time the varsity played and Brlck
ley was not ravored either, o Brlcn, me
right end, however. Is not feeling quite up
to the mark and Dana was In his place
during tho greater part of the practice.
There Is every Indication that Harvard
will have Its best team ready for Dart
mouth, the only question being how long
Capt. Wendell will be willing to take
chances of hurting his ankle again.
Go Through Two Hours Practice
for Ells on a Muddy
PniNCKTON, N, J., Nov, 14. The Tigers
had their last hard workout of the sea
son on the freshman field this afternoon,
slipping around on a muddy gridiron for
oer two hours. Coptrary to general ex
pectations a light scrimmage was held,
but this lasted only fifteen minutes, Its
purpose being merely to give the first
eleven a light defensive drill and an op
portunity of running through their forma
tions against some opposition. This was
followed up by a long Interference drill
In which the regulars merely trotted
through their playa whlls the second team
attempted to break through and tear up
the formations. No tackling was done In
this part of the workout. Walter. De
Witt and Penfield all had a long drill In
punting, getting their ktckoffs from the
regular scrimmage formations. Capt.
Pendleton, Emmons and the two Bakers
were on the receiving end of the twisters
and the ends were drilled In running down
under the punts.
Signal work lasted over an hour. All of
the regulars with the exception of Dunlap
were In the lineup, Wright taking the lat
tor's place on tho right wing. Dunlap
took part In the signal work, however, and
there Is a slight chance that he may get
into the fray on Saturday. Walter, Capt.
Pendleton and Baker alternated at the
two halfback positions, Baker being used
alternately at right and left half. Hoby
also did considerable place kicking.
For the first time In several years the
team will not leave town on the day be
fore the game. The eleven will report for
practice as usual to-morrow, but will In
dulge In only the lightest sort of wofV.
Several more coaches reported to-day
and for the first time In several days the
entire graduate advisory committee was
on the field. The committee, will probably
remain In town from now until after the
As a result of last night's rain the var
sity gridiron was fairly soggy this after
noon, but will probably dry off In the
next day or so If the weather clears by
to-morrow. It Js being covered with a
thick layer of straw very night to keep
tho ground from freezing. Princeton fol
lowers are hoping for a hard, dry field,
as they feel that a wet gridiron would
favor the Ells.
FINAL TEST OF ELIS' DEFENCE.
Scrubs Hammer Line for One Tonch
dnTrn llomelsler In Aetlon.
New Haven, Conn., Nov, 14. In the
final scrimmajje of the Yale team before
the game with Princeton the defence of,
the varsity was thoroughly tested and the
result was satisfactory to tho coaches.
The coaches gave the ball to the scrubs
and told them to make a touchdown, and
mouth the varsity held the scrubs for
downs, time nnd time again the scrubs
were allowed to retain the ball. Thirty
minutes after the scrimmage started the
scrubs finally succeeded In putting the ball
over the line for a touchdown. There was
no goal. The tduchdown was made by
Beckert and followed a short run. That
was all the scoring of the afternoon.
Though It was raining, Bomelster played
nearly through the game at right end,
and this shows that the coaches plan to
use him In the game on Saturday. Oal
lauer got In for a while, but the regular
left end was Avery. The only regular
not In the game to-day was Phllbln, who
rested, Pumpelly playing In hts place.
There will bo practice at the field early
to-morrow afternoon and the squad will
leave for Frlneeton In the evening. The
team will be accompanied by the largest
crowd of rooters that has ever accom
panied a team to Princeton.
I.ehlgh Practice by Eleetrtc Maht.
BimiMtHitM, Pa., Nov. 14. Because of
the bad condition of Lehigh Field follow
ing a heavy rain last night, the contem
plated scrimmage was cut out to-duy. Only
light work was done, but a great amount
accomplished toward perfecting the team
for the Lafayette struggle. As It gets
dark so early these evenings, electric
lights have been strung all over the "cage"
and the dally practices will be continued
there. Four changes were made on the
varsity lineup to-day, Vela supplanting
McCaffery at end. Vannert taking Wylle's
place at centre, Houser replacing Bailey
at tackle and Keady taking Crlchton's
place at fullback.
Shift In Navy Bark FIcM.
Annapolis, Md., Nov. 14. A big shift
was made In tho navy backfleld by the
coaches this afternoon, and a llttlo more
spirit was noticeable In the general work
of the team. Capt. Bodes played at
quarterback, and was the only one of the
first team backs who played yesterday
who held his place In the backfleld this
afternoon. Ingram wna placed on left
end. The scrub was particularly strong
this afternoon, but the regulars managed
to score three touchdowns, and Brown
kicked a field goal from placement.'
Local Amateur Cueist Wins,
New York started with a rush ln the
National Amateur Three Cushion Billiard
League last night, when John Dankelman
took the measuro of Dr. A, J, Harris of
Chicago at Doyle s rooms, score 60 to 48,
It was a rattling contest. In the seventy
first Inning Harris led, 48 to 48. While
Harris took three zeros, Dankelman mado
one, a sero and a three, this final cluster
being made up of spectacular shots. The
gamo was unuMially rapidly played, re
quiring only 45 minutes. To-night Dan-
kelman will meet James Shea of Chicago.
Williams Knors Its Ills flame,
Willi amstown, Muss., Nov. 14. The
Williams College varsity has ended Its

Do Wonders in Forward
One of the best high school football
games of the season should result when
Poly and Adelphl meet at Washington
Park to-day. The teams arc about evenly
matched and l( Is a tossup which will win,
although Adelphl Is favored slightly, as
two of Poly's best men will not he able to
play. They are Neurohr, centre, and
Adelphl Is making mora of this game
than Poly Is. All season the team has
been watching Poly play and Coach Mc
Clave has drllletl It on how to break up
Poly plays and formations and how" to
get through Its defence. He has trick
plays that he thnlks are the best he has
ever Invented, and that Is saying a great
deal, Poly on the other hand Is not spend
ing more time or care In preparing for
this game than any other. Coach Selgrlst
gave the team some hard scrimmage
against t,he second team Wednesday and
a light signal practice yesterday. Poly
outweighs Adelphl by five pounds to the

Edward B. Cochems, the old Wisconsin
star, has consented to conch the Boys High
football team for the remainder of the
season. Cochems ts a brother of the Wis
consin politician who aided Theodore
Roosevelt when the latter was shot In Mil
waukee. In 1907 and 1508, when he was
coaching the St. Trills University team,
Cochems was considered the best In the
Southwest. The St. I.ouls team before he
took It In hand was a second rater, but for
the two years he coached It It swept the
West. That was when the forward pass
was first used. He developed a man. Brad
Robinson by name, who still Is considered
the most accurate and longest forward
pass thrower ever developed In that part
of the country. Cochem's fame earned
him the assignment to write a chapter In
Spalding's "How to Play Football" which
dealt exclusively with tho forward pass.
When You Ride
In An Automobile
You want plenty of power, speed and absolute free
dom from trouble. You're not interested in
statistics, bore, stroke, axle size, etc.
When a prospective purchaser asks us "What's the
size of the axles?" we answer "We've never had
one broken; therefore, the size must be right."
"How large is the motor?" "It's one of the most
powerful ever built, we've never had any serious
trouble with it." Which indicates a motor of ex
ceptionally good design and material.
"What is the rated speed?" "The car shows its
heels to many that are rated far in excess of it."
And so on through every detail of the
You see reliability and efficiency tell the story
not figures. "Figures" are of little use if your car
doesn't run sweetly or when something "fails."
In other words, you want a real automobile that
proves by every known test to be a good car. iWhen
you ride, you ride in the car, not on statistics.
Figures don't keep an automobile out of trouble, but
the Chalmers "Thirty-Six" keeps out of the repair
