BOXING ALL THE LATEST DOPE
Kid Williams Makes" Fair Offer to
Kid Williams, the" Baltimore ban
tamweight pugilist, is in Chicago en
route to his home from San Fran
cisco, where he cleaned up Eddie
Campi', the Coast pride, and Charles
Ledoux, French champion.
The first person Williams asked
for when he got off the train was
Johnny Coulon, champion of th.e
midget division, and he was much
disappointed to learn that the Logan
Square lad had left the city in search
of health on a Michigan farm. Wil
liams has been after Coulon for some
time, buf the champ's physical con
dition has prevented the match.
Williams and his manager, Sam
Harris, were quite temperate in their
conversation regarding Coulon and
his long absence from the ring. The
Baltimorean did not accuse Coulon of
being "yellow," and talked like- a
dandy little sportsman.
"I am sorry Coulon is still sick,"
said Williams, "and I am willing to
concede him every chance to regain
his health. But you know I want a
fight with that boy. I think I have,
been patient in the past, but when
John- comes out of the woods this
time I'll demand' that he set a definite
date to defend his title. If he refuses
I am liable to lay claim to the cham
pionship. "If Coulon "does not feel up to the
twenty-round route at first I am will
ing to arrange a six-round go in Bal
timore or a ten-round engagement in
New York, to be followed by a fight
over the regular distance on the
coast. I think any one will admit
that is a fair proposition."
Williams leaves for Baltimore to
night. Harris said it was possible
-he would take1 his fighter to England
before challenging Coulon again.

If newspapermen had not been a
little precipitate Ty Cobb, the fa
mous Tiger outfielder, would have
been wearing a Sox uniform during
the series just concluded with Bos-
And Larry Chappell, Jack Fournier
and Bill Lange would have been
been decorating the Detroit line-up.
According to a hot report President
Comiskey of the Sox and Owner
Navin of the Tigers had about agreed
to the deal. It was about ready'to be
put through last week. Then a bare
mention of the rumor appeared in the
newspapers, and the deal was off,
temporarily, at least Not another
line was printed about it.
There are numerous circumstances
that make the trade talk Bound plaus
ible. In the first place, Cobb is not
satisfied in Detroit, and did not hesi
tate to give an interview to that ef
fect several days ago. Naturally the
Peach does not feel the same interest
in the success of the team. Not say-
