BOXING ALL. THE LATEST :DOPE BASEBALL
Kilbane Makes Poor Showing
There is considerable cloud on
Johnny Kilbane's featherweight title
this morning. A draw was the deci
sion given by the referee after twenty
, rounds of milling between the Cleve
' land midget and Johnny Dundee in
Los Angeles last night. The majority
of the spectators thought Kilbane
.was entitled to the verdict on points,
but Referee Eyton decided Dundee's
aggressiveness counteracted the
shiftiness of the champ.
Kilbane lacked a punch. Frequent
ly he tried for a right snap blow to
end the fight, but it landed seldom:
Dundee always, saw the hook com
ing and danced to a safe distance.
Kilbane landed one damaging blow,
which:.forced his opponent to break
There was. more footwork than

Kilbane plainly showed the effect of
his long lay-off-and needs much more

Johnny Coulon is due for a try-out
tonight in Windsor, Canada, when he
meets Tommy Hudson. The bantam
champ from Logan Square watched
the White Sox beat Detroit yester
day. Johnny went'to a poor place to
learn anything about hitting or foot

win or lose, for his ten-round meet

an hour's work.

Larry Cheney is beginning to show
the strain of overwork. This is not
a reflection, on the work of the big
spitballer yesterday, when he beat
the Reds in the first game of die
series.'. Cheney pitched a good game,
but he saved himself whenever pos
Unless he was pressed Larry was
puttings very little stuff on the ball.
He stuck the first one straight across
and trusted to his mates to do the
rest. They did. Al Bridwell and every
man in the outfield pulled sparkling
plays. Two drives went to Mike
Mitchell in the corner of left field and
Mike grabbed them both.
In the first six innings Cheney al-.

:first and yielding a run. Then the
Cubs took a commanding lead arid
Larry eased off. He was hit harder
in the last three frames. That is the
Christy Mathewson system, and is
the secret of the Giant's .long stay
m the big. show. He reserves the
fool' stuff in his arm until in a hole
and. then turns loose everything.
When he is out of danger he doss
not exert himself.
