Side last fall, and impressed Cal
lahan with his ability. The In
dian drew pay from St. Joseph in
the Western league in 1912. With
his battery partner, Gossett, he
was grabbed by the Sox. Jack
Holland, the St. Joe manager,
gave Manager Callahan a glow
ing account of the ability of the
pair. Johnson will probably
stick.
Gossett will have a hard row
to hoe, and must show excep
tional class to prevent being
farmed out to a minor league. He
must buck Kuhn, Schalk, Easter
ly and Billy Sullivan. That is
some job. Kuhn and Schalk are
both brilliant youngsters, Easter
ly is one of the best pinch slug
gers in the game, and Sully will
be carried to tutor the young
pitchers. It looks bad for Gos
sett. Rube Waddell, who has been
suffering from pneumonia for
ten days at Joe Cantillon's Hick
man, Ky., home, has recovered.
McGraw's Giants took a light
work-out at Marlin Springs. Jim
Thorpe performed well at first
base and in the outfield.
Ad Wolgast is a 10-to-9 favorite
over Harlem Tommy Murphy
for their fight Saturday on the
coast. Ad is within a pound of
the required weight, and looks fit.
The exhibition bout staged in
Madison, Wis., (for members of
the legislature who are consider
ing a boxing bill, was a success.
After Jeff O'Connell and Jimmy
Travers of Chicago had traveled
ten fast rounds to a draw many
of the legislators declared they
would vote for the bill. The same
plan could be followed in Illinois-.
Tom McCarey, Los Angeles
fight promoter, has received a re
quest from the manager of Bom
bardier Wells, the Englihs heavy,
for dates. Wells is willing to
meet any one, color, being no bar.
The match between Ernie
Zanders and Jimmy Clabby, bill
ed for Feb. 27, at Hammond, Ind.,
has been canceled because of an
injury to Zanders.
Johnny Coulon, bantam champ,
has telegraphed Tom McCarey he
will be unable "to meet Kid Wil
liams of Baltimore before April.
Coulori's doctor will not allow
him to fight for two months.
Pal Brown and Steve Ketchel
have agreed to terms for a ten
round go at Hibbing, Minn.,
March 3. They fought a draw
there recently.
Johnny Kilbane squared up for
his recent poor work in New
York by knocking out George
Kirkwood in six rounds. The
feather weight champion uncov
ered the best stuff he has shown
since winning the title from Abe
Attell. Kilbane was a whirl
wind, feinting Kirkwood into
knots, and putting over a daz
zling bunch of rights and lefts
when his opponent came in close.
In the third and fourth rounds
the Cleveland boy began to draw
ahead. After the fifth it was only
a question of how long Kirkwood
could last. In this session Kirk
wood was dropped twice with left
hooks. The first caught him as,
he was side-stepping, and did Iit-r
tie damage. The second put hirq
