ALL THE DOPE FROM THE SPORTING WORLD
Ed Walsh of the White Sox
sent his first letter of the winter
to Manager Callahan, promising
to meet the boss in New York
Monday at the schedule meeting.
Big Ed will then come to Chi
cago, and be on hand when the
train pulls out for the coast Feb.
20. Walsh is always in shape,
winter and summer, and much of
his time at the training camp
will be put in teaching the young
flingers some of the tricks of the
trade.
Local baseball hangouts will
be deserted tomorrow night. All
the leading lights will be on their
way to New York. Evers and
Murphy leave tonight, as they
ha,ve some trades in mind and
want to get in on the ground
floor.
Jimmy Archer's contract has
been returned to the Cub offices
unsigned. Murphy does not be
lieve there will be much difficulty
about bringing the star receiver
in the fold, though Jim will have
to lower his demand for $10,000
for the season.
That story that Murphy has in
sured the lives of Bresnahan,
Evers and Archer for $50,000
each sounds like an effort to
make news on a slack day.
Heckinger, the Chicago boy
signed as catcher by the Cubs,
has not been released to Denver.
A Denver paper said he would
play in the Colorado city this
summer.
The course of true love is
again bumping the bumps. Blos
som Seeley, actress, and Rube
Marquard. Giant pitcher, cannot
be married for ninety days be
cause of a clause in the divorce
decree obtained by Blossom's
horrid husband.
Arthur Wilson, Giant catcher,
has deserted the holdouts and
signed his contract.
The Pal Moore-Charlie White
bout, scheduled for Kenosha
Monday night, has been called
off because of the .antagonism of
the Kenosha mayor, who threat
ened to have the fighters arrested
to make a test case of the boxing
laws. Promoters of the fight did
not care to take a chance on the
legal tangle, though the fight
would have been allowed to go
on. Milwaukee was offered the
bout and turned it down, so the
two boys have no chance to ex
change punches. For the present
the match will be allowed to drop.
Zbyszko and Cazeau were on
the mat for 46 minutes and 15
seconds last night at the Globe
theater. Forty-five minutes was
devoted to punching, gouging,
kicking, ear-chewing and other
forms of roughhouse work. The
other minute and a quarter was
what the Pole needed to pin Ca
zeau's shoulders to the mat twice.
Both men seemed to hate to
waste even that much time grap
pling. Barring boxing and al
lowing this stuff to go on is the
acme of inconsistency, whatever
that is; it sounds like what we
mean.
Charley Murphy, in a jealous
rage, so to speak, says his Cubs
will play more games on the
