I SALT LAKE TEAM
Elders Are Playing
Big League tall.
Pitching Staff Looks Bettor
and Fans Now Have
alnto'May Yet Land the Pennant
Other Baseball News and
sflNHE pcr?rrm.ince of the Salt Lake
U basebnft team has been the causo
1 of a Joyous surprise nmonf? the
Bfans of this city. To ece the team
representing this city get out and play
ringB around their opponents on differ
ent occasions has caused a new hope
to spring up within the breasts of
many a hope that we may yet land
the coveted Pacific National league
pennant. If the Elders keep up the
merry lick they have started during
( the past, few weeks, the old rag may
yet float from a flagpole In Zlon. But
can they do It? ,
There Is no disputing the fact that
I the Saints have been playing winning
ball upon various occasions of late. Its
infield has conducted itself in true blg-
league fashion, and the team as a ,
I whole has been .nltting the ball at the
proper moment. If the pitching staff
can only keep in shape and prevent the
opposing batters from knocking the
cover off the ball, "Honest John" Mc
Closkcy," "Big Chief" Rellly and
1 "Wily Walter" Wilmot will have to go
some to head the Saints off. Tho fans
nro getting enthusiastic, and If tho
team keeps up Its gait, during the- next
two weeks thero will be a noticeable
swelling In tho gate receipts.
The record made by Tozor in Fri
day's game against Boise is one of
which "Cy" Young himself need not be
nshamed. Four scattered hits In nine
Innings and a shut-out game Is a. most
unviable performance and one of which
the Salt Lake slab artist has good rea
son to be proud.
Hannlvan, the new outfielder, who
made such a brilliant record with the
willow last season, has not been hitting
in his usual form during the past week.
Hannlvan walloped tho ball pretty
hard while away, but since his visit
to thlB city his batting eye has become
dulled. However, It Is no doubt only
temporary, nnd "Hann" will bo hitting
with the best of them ere long.

Salt Lake has had better luck with
Its players than any other team in the
league. Rellly has Frary and Stanley
on the injured list, Joe Marshall Is suf
fering from an attack of typhoid ma
laria, "Rnsty" Wright has a bad hand,
Swindells of Butte Is out of the game,
and most of Wllmot's pitchers are suf
fering from lame arms. The Elders are
still In fighting shape.
Manager McCloskey this week pre
sented to All Hallows college three his
toric balls that have figured In league
games this year. One of them is the
spheroid with which Joe Marshall won
an organ at Boise by hitting an ad
vertisement, one is the ball used In the
twelve-Inning game at Spokane two
weeks ago, and the other was one
knocked over the fence by O'Conncll
at Spokane, scoring the winning run.
"Slats" Davis, ex-Elder and now um
pire, had a stormy time of It at Butte
last week when he made his debut with
the Indicator. The players did not take
kindly to some" of "Slats's" decisions,
and for a time riot was threatened.
Davis has umpired before, thoujjh, and
he ought to give "satisfaction once he
gets settled down.
The umpire proposition in this city
has become what might be called
"fierce." Most of tho games during
the past week have been marred by
the unpopularity of the umpire's de
cisions, which has caused endless
wrangling between the players of the
different teams,' besides one very un
pleasant scene participated In by sev
eral of the spectators.
The weather is still very cold up In
Butte and the ballplayers are having
a hard time to play fast enough to keep
warm. Between snowstorms and sand
storms, the attendance figures at the
Smoky City are kept down very low.
The Boise team Is scheduled to re
main over in this city and play on Mon
day (Miners' Union day). Wednesday
Wllmot's pets will arrive and for the
remainder of the week will do battle
with GImlln's Elders.

shifty little follow.
The fight was fast enough for anyone,

I cannot, of course, tell, but ho showed

Six-Day Champion Talks of
the Racing Game in
Will Return About tho Middle of
Next August to Paris,
AFTER defeating the best riders of
Europe, Bobby Walthour of the
Columbia , team returned from
abroad layt week bearing the ti
tle of "the world's champion cyclist."
Not alone has ho beaten the greatest
men of Europe and America Jn paced
races, but he is also the long-distance
champion, having twice evolved a win
ner of New York's great six-day bicycle
race. With him were Gussle Lawson,
his pacemaker; Manager Ell WInsett,
Mrs. Walthour and tlrfce children.
Although offered every Inducement to
remain abroad, Walthour preferred to
come here for a few months. He will
go to Paris again about the middle of
"1 am well pleased with my work on
the other side," said Walthour, after
leaving the boat. '"I competed In
eleven races, winning len oi mem ana
losing the odd one only because my
pacing apparatus went wrong. I de
feated such men as Robl, Ryser and
Salzman of Germany; Contlnet, Brecy
and Dangla of France: Hall of Eng
land; Brunl of Italy, and Jimmy Mi
chael, who has again entered the racing
game, but who Is not moving very fast.
"There were tremendous crowds at
the bicycle races In Paris, Berlin and
Dreoden. At one track there were al
most 30,000 paid admissions. This way
on May 15, when notwithstanding the
time I lost changing wheels, I rode fifty-three
miles In the hour, beating Hall
and Brunl. Sometimes there were 5000
people at the track to watch me train.
All the race meets are held on Sunday.
"I consider Rutt the best sprinter on
the other side, while Dangla 13 the best
man behind pace.. Michael iy not going
very well, and I am sure his fall in Ber
lin hurt hlr head so badly that his rea
son Is effected.
"My shortest race was ten kilometers,
while my longest was at 100 kilometers,
which lt about sixty-two mllee. I broke
the record on every track at which I
rode, and with the new twenty-four-hon?a-power
molor-blcycl pacing ma
chine which I brought over expect to do
likewise In thlB country during the
summer. The machine la tho largest
air-cooled motor fitted to a bicycle that

Ryan's punch had little chance to land
effectively In vlnw of the clever defense
of Gardner. That boy Is certainly a sur

added knowledge that will coma from

now hns, ho certainly ought to make a

that left hand of his has a fortune In It.

Charlie Neary returned to Milwaukeo
Wednesday morning after his six round
draw with Clarence English In Chicago
the night previous without a mark on his
person to Indicate that he had participat
ed In a grueling six-round fistic combat.
The Milwaukeo boy Is not satisfied with
the showing he made against hi? opponent
and attributes the decision of a draw to
his being a trll'e nervous and over anx
ious to make good before a strange club.
There can be no denial of the fact that
Neary s milling was a distinct disap
pointment to his many local friends and
to himself, but It should also be known
by the Milwaukee fight fans that the
Chicago sporting writers In chronicling
the Monday night event did not voice the
opinion of tho spectators. It Is true that
Iscary did not live up to his reputation
and tho Windy Cltw fight fans who had
looked to see tho Mllwaukecan make short
work of English were surprised at the un
satisfactory showing of Neary. But not
withstanding this Charlie made a pro
found Impression on those who saw him
struggle In his first contest outside of tho
lines of the State of Wisconsin.
Tho men In Chicago that make a prac
tice of attending every card of bouts that
promises Interesting milling arc more
lenient than are the pugilistic writers of
tho big city dailies and It can be said
without fear of contradiction that Neary
pleased the largo crowd with his persist
ent and fearless fighting. Although ho
was never Jn danger of being distressed
by English, Neary worked like a Trojan
to decisively defeat his antagonist, but ho
could not land with his stiff blowa except
upon the body at closo range
After tho affair was over and the largo
crowd was filing from the hall nine of
every ten of the witnesses spoke most fa
vorably of tho local man. The one ex
pression on every tonKUo was: "This
Neary Is a great' little fighter and when
he has been schooled In the finer points
of the sport there aro few men of his
weight that can take his measure "
Malachy Hogan said that he had given
tho decision of draw because neither of
tho contestants had advantage enough to
merit being returned winner and there
was not a dissenting volco In the club
when the announcement was mado. Hogan
eald also that had the combat gono three
or four more rounds Neary would cer
tainly have beaten English and, perhaps,
have put him out.
