A game between the Giants and
the. Senators which was played at
* Newport News, Va., recently might
b 14b described as the biggest 10-cent
g°ame on record, for that was the
price of admission charged to all
men in unniform. More than 5,000
soldiers and sailors took advantage
of the bargain offer to see two ma
jcr league teams in action. The
grounds were so crowded with dough
boys and gobs, besides about a. thou
sand civilians, that it was necessary
to enforce ground rules. As both
teams furnished a fine brand of ball
the fighting men considered that
their dime was well spent, especially
when they took into consideration
the vaudeville show provided by
Nick Altrock, who performed as usual
on the coaching line.
Manager Robbie of the Robins is
jubilant over landing Lee Magee
from the Reds, and is now more con
fident than ever that his team will
be a dangerous contender for the
National league pennant. Magee re
ported to the club shortly before the
season opened, and as he has been
playing ball with the University of
Cincinnati, he was in shape to get
into the Itohins' bhatting order as
soon as he joined his new outfit.
With the infield composed of lMagee,
Schmandt, Olson and O'Mara the
clubh is greatly strengthened, both on
ithe defensive and offensive sides of
the glame. Magee's presence in thll
inner works also adcids inuch ne.ledl
pep to the team.

A-nniversalry of Birth of John Ifeclian.
When Jess Willard won the cham
pionship title lie afforded one of the
few exceptions which prove tile rule
that giants seldom make good in the
ring. Willard is a good four inches
taller than the most altituttiinous of
previous American chamlpions. John
C. Heenan, the celebrated Trojan
who fought Sayers and King for the
wbrld's title in England half a cen
tury ago, held the record for height
and reach amlong American chullmps
until Willard's victory.
John Carmnel Ileenan, iinmortal
ized as "the Benecia Boy," was lbornt'
inl Troy, N. Y., 84 years ago tolnor
row. May 3, 1835. At the uage of 11
he hit the trail for California, and
was employed as a machinist a en
icia, where he got into the limelight
by licking the town bully. in 1858
lie fouglit John Morrissey for thle
American chamlpionship, and was
having a soft time of it. until he
stmashed his fists on a. post, after
which Morrissey put him out. John
Morrissey refused to fight again,
however, and in 1860 Heenan was
recognized as the American chainm
pion, and went to England to fight
'Tomli Sayers for the cht,nltiionshin of
the world. The fight ended in a
brawl, and both sides claimed the
victory, although Heenan was ap
parently entitled to the honors. Lat
er lie was defeated by Tom King, the
English chamlpion, but the friends
of the Benecia Boy insisted that he
had been drugged.
H-eenan was aidvertised as a giant,
being six feet two inches in height.
No other American champion reached
Ileenan in height until Willard ap
peared on the scene. Paddy Ryan
was five feet eleven inches, and his
conqiiuetror, lJohn L. Sullivan, half aill
inch shorter. Jim Corbett was six
feet one inch; hob Fitz.intmons
lacked a quarter of an inch of being
six feet. and .lin JefIfries is six fee'
one and a half inches, approaching
the nearest to Heenan's stature.
Johnson was half an inch over six
feet. Tommy Burns was the shortest
of niodern chalmpions, being only
five feet seven inches. The tallest
of the American contenders for the
title was Ed O'Baldwin, ti!e Irish
nlan who flourished half a century
ago, who was six feet five and a half
Gardtlnerl-Santriy Batltl es.
Oscar Cardner, known as 'th,
Ontaha Kid," knocked out Eddy San
try in the fifth round at Louisville
1l years ago tomorrow, May 3,. 1900.
Oscar was one of the best little fight
Iers the nlodern ring has had, al
lthough never recognized as cham
pion. At one timne or another, how
ever, he defeated several title hold
itrs. He whipped Solly Smith both
before and after the Californian was
featherweight champion, won from
Australian Billy Miurphy after the
latter had lost the featherweight title,
kInockced out Dave Sullivan only a
few months after the Hlibernian box
cr had lost thie chatmpionship, ant
put IHarry Forbes to sleep the year
before the Chicagoan succeeded to
Itle ttantantweight honors. The Oma
hIa Kid was twice knocked out by
Terry McGovern, and Young Corbiett
also turned the same trick, although
that was when the kIid was on the
downward liath. During his ring ca
reer of 10 years, Gardner imet the
best men of his weight, and was sel
dom defeated. Santry was also a
classy Iboxer, and since his retirement
from the ring has been elected to the
