Flashy Fielding in Cub-Card Came
-Sox Play Twice Tomorrow.
Calgary authorities -will rash Ar
thur Pelkey and Tommy Burns,
charged with manslaughter in con
nection -with the death of Heavy
weight Champion Luther McCarty,
to trial June 23. No postponements
will be allowed.
It will be a good thing to have the
trial at once and get the matter done
with. Then it can rest and -mH not
be hanging as a blot over boxing for
nearly a year.
Football players have been killed,
auto racers have been dashed to
death and there was a fatality in the
motorcycle races at Riverview only a
short time ago. There is no agitation
to stop these sports, but the reform
ers will never let up in boxing ber
cause of Mccarty's death.
w If the trial is held at once the trag
edy will be forgotten that much
Burns today said that Mccarty's
estate is in the neighborhood of $12,
000. He declared the figures sug
gested by the fighter's wife, $65,000,
were grossly exaggerated.
Leach Cross boosted the advertis
ing of his bout with Bud Anderson
on the coast July 4 by trimming Ted
dy Maloney easily, over the ten-round
route iu New York last night. The
East Side dentist -tfas cautious in the
first three rounds,, then cut loose a
dazzling attack that overwhelmed, his
Philadelphia opponent Maloney was
almost out in the last spasm.

innings of baseball entertainment for
the usual price of nine yesterday,
which is our idea of real generosity.
The 17-round battle was the long
est on the West Side since 1902,
when" the -Cubs walloped the Pirates
in 19 Innings. Yesterday's combat
was long enough, however, and
caused several cases of indigestion
among dinnerless fans. Several gents
