'Attell Wins Again.
Cubs Home For Exhibition Games
Sox Teams Win.
Billy Nolan, manager of light
weight champion 'Willie Ritchie, to
day intimated, in response to a chal
lenge, that his fighter would meet the
winner of the Leach Cross-Joe Rivers
match to be staged in New York next
Nolan said Ritchie was tied up with
theatrical contracts which will pre
vent him entering the ring before
July 4. Nolan believes that Rivers
will whip Cross, and be the logical
contender for the title.- Ad Wolgast
by his showing with Murphy is not
entitled to m'uch: consideration, and
Packey McFarland' can't, inake the
Abe Attell is parading along the
come-back path without a stumble.
He cleaned up Jimmy Walsh last
night in easy style. At the' end of
the tenth round the 'little Hebrew
was strong, and appeared able to
travel twice the distance. He did not
have a lot of steam in his punches,
but possessed his former cleverness.
Chances forsthe passage of a box
ing bill in Colorado are good. The
state senate yesterday passed an
amended resolution, and put it up to

The Northwestern League opens its
season tomorrow. Fielder Jones, fdr
mer manager of the' White Sox, is
president-of -the- league,
Johnny Evers limped into town
this morning from Kansas City at the
head of his 1913 Cubs, touted by Mur
phy as the" greatest hitting aggre
gation which has, ever represented
Chicago in the National League.
The peppery manager will probably
remain out of the games with Indian
apolis, which start today on the West
Side, because of an injury to the same
ankle-which he broke a few seasons
ago just before the Cubs-Athletic
world's series. John started in the
game yesterday, but intended to quit
before'the end of the pastime. He
was saved from removing himself by
the umpire, who .did not take kindly
to big league "oratory.
-All of the players appeared to be
in fine fettle, and declared the train
ing trip-was one of the most success
ful' they were ever on. The weather
at' Tampa suited them, and boiled out
aching muscles quickly. Flood con
ditions on the latter part of the jaunt
broke uj' theN arrangements, and the
players were glad to reach home.
..The last game away from home
was" a defeat, Kansas City winning,
13-to 4. Bill Powell-was not a.success
in the town he formerly infested, and.
lasted only two innings against the
Blues. Seven runs were scored,
against him. BUI only allowed three
hits. This was because none of the
batters had a chance to whale the
pill, eight of them being passed. Lou
Richie attempted a jovial brand of re
lief, but the stuff was off, and he was
laced for ten hits before the ump
stopped the slaughter in the eighth
Frank. Schulte pulled a" Merkle
when he pounded the pill over the
fence and then forgot to touch third
