Mahoney Fights Good Battle
Dundee Choice Over White
Cubs and Sox Win Because Cheney
and Reb Russell Pitch.
Racine, Wis., is acquiring a repu
tation as a breeding place for slap
bang featherweight prizefighters.
First it was Matty McCue, who
copped, his fights with a knockout in
a round or so. Now it is Kid Ma1
Mahoney looked every bit as good
as McCue last night, fighting Patsy
Brannigan to a draw in Milwaukee.
If there was any shade at the end of
the tenth round it was in favor of
the Racine youngster.
Brannigan started fast and took
the lead in the first and second
rounds. In the third Mahoney ral
lied and belted the Pittsburgher all
over the ring. This punishment tohk
most of the fight out of Brannigan
and the closing rounds were an even
The result was a big surprise, as
Brannigan was touted to make short
work of Mahoney. Promoters now
are trying to match Mahoney and
McCue before a Milwaukee club.
Such a fight would be worth going a
long way to see.
Johnny Dundee is a 10 to 8" favor
ite over Jack White of Chicago in
their twenty-round fight tonight in
Los Angeles, but there are. plenty of
White backers on thexoast Victory
in this fight means a lot to each man.
If Dundee wins he will have the right
to go ahead and battle the leaders of
the bantamweight division White
will be given a crack at Harlem Tom
my Murphy if he wins. That would
mean a big gate and a lot of coin
for th Chicagoan.
Coast promoters seem to have
passed up Johnny Kilbane since his
fight with Dundee, There is no de
mand for a return match, and the
general opinion is that Dundee Is
the more willing fighter and a better
xnan than the. champion,

With a regular pitcher doing duty
the Cubs played 'real, baseball for
eight innings yesterday. There was
some punk work in the first, that
would undoubtedly have worked dis
aster with anyone but Cheney, Over

But Cheney was out there toiling
on the mound, and the punk stuff
did not cost anything. Paskert, the
first man up, singled cleanly to left.
Dolan then laid down abunt between
Safer and Cheney. Vic and Larry
dashed for the pill and the pitcher
gathered it in his mitts and turned
to throw Dolan out at first. No one
was covering the bag. Boss Evers
lingered midway between'second and
first, instead of chasing over to take
