Flyrin to Try Come Back Brown
and Anderson on Coast.
Cub Defense Weak Pitchers Fail
1 Coaching Beats Sox.
Jim Flynn will make an effort to
come back tomorrow night at Phila
delphia, when he meets Heavyweight
Champion Luther McCarty-in a six
round go. The battle is not over a
long enough route, to get a line on
Flynn's ability. He can easily last
the distancej'and may make as good
a showing as McCarty, who hasjittle
experience over the six-frame track.
McCarty, too,, will be on trial. The
champion has not been in a mix-up
since he eliminated Al Palzer New
Year's day, gaining a clear title to
the championship, and theatrical
work does not keep a scrapper in
perfect condition. The gb does not
look like a proposition to spill muph
enthusiasm over.
Betting is even for the Kayo Brown
. -Bud Andersop tussle at Los1 Angeles
tonight and a hot battle is 'looked
for. The last engagement between
these two boys was a slashing affair,
with Dan Morgan's ligh'tweightshav
ing a "slight advantage. Brown land
Anderson have made the weight easr
ily and 'are in perfect condition. The
fight should be. won by .a knock-out,
and luck will probably decide the win
ner. On their last fight there is little
to dope the victor. Each man was
nearly out at the finish.
New York is provided with a great
fight card tonight at the. St. Nicholas
A. C, when four crack lightweights
and two welters meet in three elimi
nation bouts. Matty Baldwin is pair
ed with Jack Britton, One-Round Ho
gan with Willie Beecher and Knock
out Brown, of Chicago with Billy
Grupp of' St; Louis. The winners of
tthe Britton-Baldwin aVid Beecher-.
Hogan fights will engage in a fight
later in the month. Britton, Brown
and Beecher look like the best bets
for tonight.

After having used up nearly all of
his pitching corps in the first three
games of the season, Manager Evers
of the Cubs had a hard time deciding,
on his hurler for today, but fixed on
Lavender shortly before the game.
Saier worked out at first base, and
there was a possibility that he might
be used, at least for a short time.
Ten hits were jammed out of
Southpaw Robinson and Camnitz yes
terday, three of ; them being collected
byginks who horned into the fag end
of the pastime. This hitting should
have been powerful enough to win
ah -ordinary game, but yesterday's
fracas was not of the ordinary va
riety. In the first j)lace, neither Richie,
Toney or Humphries, who pitched
in the order named, had anything to
