BOXING ALL THE LATEST DOPE BASEBALL
Al Palzer's Light Blown Out
Mo ran -Shows Wallop.
Al Palzer for several weeks has
been threatening to fight a negro on
'foreign-soil. White boxing fans kick
ed strenuously on the proposal. Now
they are willing for Al to go against
Johnson, Langford or any man he
Frank Moran, the Pittsburgh
heavy, put an effectual period to Pal
zer's career last night by dropping
him in the seventh round in New
York. Moran led from the first gong,
and in the third round knocked Pal
zer down for the count of eight. He
floored him again in the sixth, and
put over the final punch after ten
seconds of the seventh had ticked off.'
Much blood was spilled during the
affair, Palzer opening a cut over
Moran's eye. The latter belted the
Iowan in the face at will.
The finish of Palzer will not cause
much grief. Two years he was the
most promising of a poor crop of
budding heavyweights. Wise old owls
of the ring declared he only needed
schooling to make him a champion.
But Al and his backers were not con
tent to wait and tackled the big game
too soon. He was knocked out by the
late Luther McCarty and then began
a publicity campaign which was dis
gusting. He professed to be after a fight
with Jack Johnson. This was at the
time the negro was convicted of vio
lating the Mann act, and Palzer's
attitude did. not meet with great
'favor among decent fight bugs. In
.reality, Palzer never had any inten
tion of meeting Johnson, realizing
tthe latter could whip him.
Moran, who clouted Palzer last
night, is a husky, slashing scrapper,
'and has a strong punch. He can
'stand heavy punishment Carl Morris
.will probably be matched with Moran.
There .wilTbe no interest in the bout.

- Heinie Zimmerman and Johnny
Evers are loose again, snapping at
each other and running around the
ball field with their tongues out and
their teeth flashing in the brilliant
sunlight These two gents simply
cannot dwell in peace and harmony,
and it is becoming more apparent
each day that one of the pair will
have to depart from the West Side.
Zim is top slugger of the team,
and a,, valuable man if his heart is
in-his work, but Evers is manager,
and Murphy must support him in or
der to maintain a semblance of dis
cipline in the team.
The latest blow-off occurred in the
second inning of yesterday's game in
St. Louis. Evers was on second when
Zim bumped a slow one to Mike
Mowrey. Mowrey pegged wide to
first and Zim was safe, Evers taking
third. The Bronx biffer, for some un
known reason, did not halt at the ini
tial station, but legged it for second.
While the Cards were chasing him
Evers raced for the plate, but was
tossed out Then he roasted Zim with
some warm oratory.
Heinie in a loud tone advised his
