JOKE BOOT 11 By
Demelral Put i Away in the
Fifth Round of a Com
BOTH WITHOUT SCIENCE
Large Crowd Witnesses Show
for Benefit of Murray Fire
Twclvo liiiiulroil fifthl fans, many of
them from Salt Lake City, witnessed
thu nirotinj: af; Murray last niplifc of
Jack Leon and William Dcmctral in
what was intended to l)c a twenty-round
boxing exhibition, but which was ter
iniuatcii early iu the fifth round when
Leon landed two body blows followed
by a swiii;; to the jaw and Dcmctral sur
rendered his ambition to become a
white hope. If any of the fans present
attended tho show in tho expectation
of seeing a real boxing match thoy wcro
greatly disappointed but tho exhibition
as a laugh-producer was a complete suc
When the boxing commission of Salt
Lake City advised against permitting
tho "bout to be staged Lore on the
grounds that tho two Lea vy weights
were wrestlers and not boxiirs, the
members know whereof thoy- spoke.
Leon and Dcmctral hve achieved some
degree of success in the mat game, but
they never wore, arc not and nevor will
be exponents of tho manly ait of self
defense. They arc entirely devoid of
science nnd their wild swings, which
would usually miss the mark by several
I feel, were excruciatingly funny. In fact
the crowd derived so much amusement
from the exhibition that the members
forgot lo be peoved. at tho shortcomings
of tho bout from a standpoint of scien
The promoters of the bout did their
part in good style and Referee Frank
Armstrong made a favorable impression
on the fans.
The boxers wcro content to spar at
long range during tho first round and
both swung wildly and ineffectually. Do
motral. landed once on Loon's face, the
only real blow of the round. Honors
were even at the tap of the bell.
The big fellows went .into repeated
clinchos in the second round and the
reforco was kept busy breaking them
apart. The wrestling habit was strong
in both men and they tugged away at
each other much as t'li03p did in former
wrestling matches. Leon .jabbed away
with his left at Dcmctral 's face but
the blows had littlo force. Both were
swinging wildly and an occasional hit
would be scored. Little damage was
done by either.
The third round was Leon's by a
shade. The Greek lauded two of Ins
wild swings, but Leon rocked Lis op
ponent's Lead with a straight loft and
jabbed away lightly at; Dcmctral -"s
face. There was plenty of action but
Demctral sont Lis larger opponent to
the floor m the next round, but the Jius
sian went down not from tho force of
the blow, but. because ho got Lis feet
tangled. TLc tap tLut upset Leon was
the third of three successive lefts to
the face. The "Bear Cnt." was on his
foot at onco as tho bell ended tho round.
The fifth round lasted only 40 sec
onds. Demctral landed a straight left
and after a minute's sparring Leon un
corked a weird lunge, which landed on
Dcmctral 's body and. tho Greek wont
to the floor for a count of six. When
he arose, another body blow sent him
down again for a 7-aecond. period and
this time ho arose to meet a swinging
right to the head which put him down
for the count.
Tho first preliminary, intended as a
four-round no between Jack Keep and
''Kid" Irish, lasted only a brief frac.
tion of a round, two blowH to tho face
causing Irish to give, up the bout. Mo
claimed that ho was blinded and unable
to continue. "Vankeo" Allen ,and
"Young Abe Atlell" then went, on for
four rounds and furnished plenty of
action, their exhibition goine far to re
deem the disappointment of the main
bout. The rnfereo decided the contest
a draw. Harry Harris and John -Mr-Grocvy
wont oh for the semi-final, the
latter taking tho placo of another who
failed to appear. Ho was greatly out
weighed hy IfarriB and lasted loss than
one round, being knocked out by a
swintr to the ,iaw. Ed Wright referred
tho first two bouts -and Con Gallagher!
The entertainment was witnessed by
the newly-appointed boxing commission
of Murray, Nophi Gibbs, Judge Carl
Mark. Dr. W. If. Kothwoll and D. W.
Moffatl. This commission was appointed
by the board of county commissioners lo
aco that no law was violated.
Giants Have Shade on Sox
In Battery Department
Pitchers About Equal But New York Catchers Over
shadow Boston's Best Two Receivers
(Thlf; article comparing the world's
series batteries of the Red Sox and
Giants, Ik the first of a serlea of throe
dully articles, the last two of which will
deal -with the relative merits of tho in-1
fields and outfield?.)
''How yuh bottln' on the Decree;:?"
Tills bromidiom calls the debating
clui) to order on tho street, eornoi. in tho
office or any place where men can pau6ts
for a moment. Tho affirmative grabs
off a generous allotment of time for tho
opening argument and lends off with,
for instance, this harangue:
"They're all talking Sox, just like they
all talked Jeffries. And tho. Giants ?re
going to surprise them, .lust like John
son did. And I'll tell you why. Joe
Wood Js Boston's ono host bet. Tf bo's
off color It's good night Sox! Now, listen.
Tou know what winning nineteen straight
did to Marquard. And Too Wood has
Just finished the American league's rec
ord run, Well, tho nervous strain lias
got him so wobbly that "
"So wobblv that, tho Yankee ham
mered him for a total of two hit in tho
firm game ho pitched after his run was
broken. He is so wobbly that his Jump
ball wobbles out of the way when a bat
ter swings at It. Yes, lie's gouo so far
bnclc that they would begin making hits
off him if they could only see the ball
when he shoots it over."
"That's all right Tho Yankees are a
bunch or dubs. I loll you thnt record of
Wood's has put lilm on tho blink for the
scries. As T was going to say. In a short
series It's all In the pitching and you've
got to have men you can depend upon.
Tho Giants can depend on Mathowson
and Tcsreau. Tesreau is the sensation
of this season. Tie haa got better every
dav since spring, and tho way he's go
ing now tliey can nover stop him. And
Mutlicwson is the greatest pitcher in the
"Maybe ho is, considering what be has
done in the past. But what a man used
to bo able to do won't count In decid
ing tho baseball championship of tho
Matty Greatest of All.
"All rlghL You say Matty used to be
tho greatest. Well he's as good today aB
ho used to bo and the figures show it.
What do you thlnlc of that? Last year
he won twenty-four guinea and lost
twelve. This year he has won twenty
six and lost thirteen Just the same per
centage, and this year he has had the
greatest control in the world, averaging
less than one base on balls to a game,
and, moreover, he has had moro games
kicked away by bad support this year
than ever before."
The debaters are certainly right about
the Importance of pitching in a short
serlps like tins great classic. The death
dealing war club of John Franklin Baker
relegated box work to the shadows last
vf;af, but most world's series aro like
those which were featured by tho twirl
ing of Bill Denccn, Mordecal Brown, Jack
Coombs, Ed Walsh, Chrlstv Muthcwson
and Babe Adams. Mathowson Is the
greatest of all world h series heroes. He
set a mark for them all to shoot at
when he won three straight shutout tri
umphs over the Athletics In 1003. He
had tho Whito Elephants eating out of
his great right paw Ho bent Eddln Plank
3 to 0 in the firnt game, trimmed Andy
Coaklcy f) to 0 in the third game and
blanked the great redskin, Chief Bender.
2 to 0 In the fifth and deciding gamo of
Bcdlcnt, who will likely be Stahl's third
choice in the box. with Jon Wood and
Ray Conlllns, makes a mighty strong
looking triple alliance, but "mighty
strong" describes New York's slab squad,
Thoro la no gainsaying1 tho fact that
Mathewson Is still the steady, relia.blo
busman ho was of old and that he ia
pretty certain to pitch at least one bril
liant gamo n gainst tho Sox. Tho best
pltchor in tho world would havo hl
hajide full opposing Jess Tesreau, and
then there i.t Rubo Man-ward. It Is far
from Impossible that thfi holder of the
world's record for consccutivA victories
will prove tho hei-o of the series.
Pitching' Staffs Equal.
Everything connldored, It la nonsense
to say that cither ono of thesn pitching
staffs outclassed the other. They are
Just about equal. This would bo by no
means true If Joo Wood were to miffer
a reaction on account of his record run,
but judging from tho way ho pitched
against the Highlanders I1I3 slump lasted
about as long an the flight of a shooting
star across tho sky. Rav Collins, the
second best pltchor in tho Stahl orew,
while not generally figured as formidable
as either ilathowson or Tesrnau, is a
consistent winner and his portslde deliv
ery may prove even moro effective against
tho Gianta than Wood's right-handed
smoko balls, for tlm GlantB do not hit
up to form against fork-hand lingers.
Tn the post-season aeries plo.ved by the
Giants and Red Sox in 100.0 Mathowson
defeated Wood, but was conquered by
Collins. The sturdy Vermont youth won
undying fame in Boston in that vlctorv
over Matty. TTo held the Gotliamltcs lb
live scattered hltH. twn nf whinh
decidedly lucky ones. Whllo Collins has
not had world's series oxporlenco. this
previous appearance against ,tho Gotham
ltos will tend to mako him l'eol at hom
and anyway his record shows him In tho
light of a fine riser to big occasions He
has done his best work In crucial games.
Bcdlcnt s excellent record for tho sea
son places him on n. par as rescue
man with "Old Doctor" Otis Crandall,
New 1 orlc'3 most illustrious Havlor of los
Giants Catchers ExceL
Now let uh turn our attention lo Carrl,
gan and Cadj-. and, on the other hand.
Meyers and Wilson. Hardly anyono outside-
of Boston will dispute the auporiority
of tho latter pair. The supportern of
these two stars of the Giant squad have
a pretty clear case. Meyers and Wil
son arc groat both In batting and field
ing, and have no material deflcloncios,
while both of tho Bostoncso havo weak
nesses. Tho indictment or Carrlgan's
batting eye is a. true bill and it Is like
wise tnio that Cady's fielding game doca
not mcasuro up to world's championship
standards. Until the laiit few weeks Chief
Meyers was the one and only receiver for
New York, but when his illness gave
Arthur Wilson a chance to show his
wares that young man came through with
a, string of performances; no consistently
grand in all dcpiivtmenls that many are
now clamoring for McGraw to givo the
youngster a ohance In some of tho big
games. Tho fact Is tho Giants have two
catchers In the forefront of tho list from
which tho greatest catchor in the gamo
would be chosen. Wilson is a decided
favorito over Cady, hut the difference be
tween them Is not so great as tho In
dian's advantage over Carrigan, for the
Chief is batting nearly 100 percentage
points better than Big Bill.
New York's regard for Meyers is no
greater than Boston's admiration for
Carrigan, but the Chief's reputation is
based on something that will count for
moro in tho scrios, namely, his tremen
dous hitting. Carrigan won his fame aa
tho dovelopor of Boston's famous pitch
ing staff and as a ma-sler of lnsido base
ball. Tn this last respect ho will doubt
less prove a greater asset than Moyers.
New York, however, is not worrying about
tho matter of generalship, an long as !
Mr. Xapoleon McGraw if on tho bonch.
Tho Giants, thon, huve the edgo on the
.Red Sox In hattcries. Tfie pitching
stalTs are even, but there Is a marked
dLfcronco In tho catching corps.
Doyle's Injured Ankle Well
And New York Fans Rejoice
By International News Service.
NI3W YORK, Oct. 1. A great load of
anxiety was lifted from tho minds
of John J. McGraw, Lite Giants and the
root era today when Larry Doyle, second
baseman and mainstay of tho Giant out
field, appeared at his post lu the gamo
against tho Dodgers and when he an
nounced a-flor tho game that his injured
ankle had ao far improved that, barring
another strain, he would go into the
world's series without an ache. Doyle
limped off the field after Thursday's
gamer with a badl.v wrenched ankle that
required medical attention. McGraw was
exercised over tho prospect of having
Doyle incapacitated and not until this
ovouing did ho regain his equilibrium.
Doyle. n attested by his winning an
automobile as the most valuable man to
his team In iht: National league. Is the
pivot of the Giant Inlleld and his loss
would be irreparable.
Joe Wood will report for duly against
the Giants next Tuesday with the great
est pitching record hung up since A G.
.Spuuldlng tore off a percentage of .Sl'D In
1375. Wood pitched thirty-four victories
out of a possible thlrty-J.ihu: lilts season
an average of .S7- Mathewson led with
.SOU In 1000 and King Cole led in 1310
Giants' Catchers Best,
Statisticians universally give the Giants
the bulge over the Red Sox In the matter
of catchers. The reason Is Chief Meyers.
His hitting and throwing are far ahead
of tho best performances of Carrigan and
Cady. the Boston mainstays. Carrigan is
largely responsible for tho Red Sox ma
chine. He is 11 quick thinker and n
stoacUwvetcrun, lxit his throwing la medi
ocre. Wilson, the cliief's aid, about off
sots (he ability of Cady, Wood's battery
male, although the latter excels all other
world's series catchers in tho record for
fielding with an average of .097. having
mado only one error in forty-six games.
Cady -will catch Wood In tho scries
and likewise Wilson will probably be used
only with Jeff Tesreau. Wilson litis a
fielding avorago of .062. His batting av
oragu is .278, Cady'ji is .U7U. In the mai
ler of experience Wilson excels. Thon
there aro Hartley, little used by the
Giants, and Nunnmaker of the Jlcd Sox
pinch staff. Comparing tho three back
stops of each side as a. whole tho Giants
arc shown to have a batting advantage
over their opponents of fortv--:ilx points,
but fall behind tho fielding of the Red
Sox twelve polios.
Two Managers Compared.
Just how much advantago a bench
manager has over a playing manager, if
ho has any, is a question that tho com
ing scries may go a long way toward
solving. In McGraw and Stahl tho ticrlos
will produce tho best typo of each Kpccios.
McGraw, conceded to be the greatest
manager of his day and perhaps of all
time, will do most of the thinking for his
men. He is the brains, the ma.-itcr tac
tician. The Giants will do what McGraw
thinks they should do. Stahl, conserva
tive, where McGraw in aggressive, will be
at Ural base, in the thick of the battle.
It remains to bu seen how much of a
tactician he is and whethor ho will be
able to cope with a man who has had
greater experience than himself and a
man who will lake greater chances.

way the dope favors U10 Giants the Bos- j

Wyoming Team Here for Its
Annual Clash With Utah
on the Gridiron.
On the eve or tho game with tho Uni
versity of Wyoming today Coach Ben
I have never sent a team into a
game with such well founded confi
dence aa T will this afternoon when
my men line up aga.inst tho Cowboys
from Laramie. I base this statement
to a great extent upon (he condition
of tho men. It has been apparent for
Rlx months that th rivalry for places
011 tho team would bo Intentie. and
for that reason almost, every candi
date began tho airly training In fine
condition. This gvaduaJly improved
jtud as early aa two weeka ago I ho
men were in good shape Then
there was a little slump, but n. few
good jolts at the bands of I ho fresh
men waked them up tuid I think
that right now they arc In 50 per
cent better shape than they were
last year at this time. Indeed, in
yesterday'.') practice they showed form
equal to that of any time last sea
son. Then, again, we have two full
teams of almost equal strength and.
if need be. half of the team can bo
fresh all tho time. Under these con
ditions T don't sco how we can lose.
Captain Dune Gardener says:
Perfect harmony exists throughout
ihc squad, and with mom than
twenty first-class -men in good shape
wo will have 110 excuses for losing.
Up to date ovorylhlng points to a
crackor-.lacic battle this afternoon whim
the teams representing tho Universities
of Utah and Wyoming tanglo on Cum
ming3 field. This will be tho first big
battle of the year for both teams and
the interest among the pigskin enthusi
asts is In tonne. This feeling exists not
alone In Utah but has entered with
equal fervor into tho ranks .of tho Wyo
ming boosters, and several inquiries
have come to Salt Lake from that part
of the country in tho past few days re
garding thu condition of the east bench
ers. Despilo tho rain that fell yesterday
afternoon tho men were all out and went
through secret practice. For the past
ten days the sod on the gridiron has not
been watered and It soaked up the rain j
so fast that one would not havo been
aware of the rain had he seen nothing
hut tho field. In fact, the players' stilts
were scarcely wet and in all probability
the field will be In fair shape today,
despite the rain or last night. The
coach had a bunch of men work
ing on the stnndfi yesterday after
noon, nnd by evening they had all been
scrubbed and put in shape to uccommo
dnto a largo crowd.
The walks leading to and from tho
field are In water-proof condition and
there is no need of any body getting wet
