Jack Britton and Eddie Murphy of
Boston. "Both boys are in town and
look ready for a fast milL If the
North Side Irishman really fights and

a time in Philadelphia he should get
The feature heavyweight scrap, of
more importance than the engage
ment between Luther McCarty and
Arthur Pelky Saturday in Calgary,
Alberta, will be between Gunboat
Smith and Jess Willard in San Fran
cisco, Tuesday night The winner will
have a clear claim to a match with
McCarty for the championship. Wil
lard is much bigger than his sailor
opponent and has been made favorite
by the coast fans.
While the heavies are swapping
punches in 'Frisco, Joe Mandot and
Bud Anderson, a pair of classy light
weights, will be tussling in Los An

has flashed to fame in the last few
mouths, and if he disposes of Mandot
he will be in a position to ask for
a crack at Willie Ritchie's title.

All Frank Chance got out of his
four-day stay in Chicago was a floral
horseshoe, cheers from the fans and
a big reception. There was nothing
doing for him in the line of winning
games, the white Sox making a -clean
games, the White Sox making a clean.
Chance is not to blame for the poor
showing oMiis team. 'He took ho
of a hopeless tail-end aggregation
when it was too late to strengthen
by trades or purchases. He is build
ing for next year. He needs a strong
er defense at second, third and short
It may come from improvement of
the men already holding down the
positions. If it doesn't the P. L. wfll
get better men, as-he has an unlimit
ed amount of money back of him,
and wants a winner at any cost
