Champ Kilbane Beats J. Walsh
Nelson After Wolgast.
Johnny Kilbane featherweight
champion, is out to'prove that he is
still the top man in his class, despite
the questionable draw he got with
Johnny Dundee several months ago.
Kilbane secured a verdict over Jim
my Walsh in 12 rounds at Boston last
night, the first battle he has fought
since the Dundee affair. In two pre
vious meetings the best Kilbane could
get with the Boston lad was a draw.
Backers of the champion are point
ing to his last night's performance
as an indication that he is as good
as ever was. The only way Kilbane
can prove this is to continue to fight
the best men in his weight. Dundee
has graduated to the lightweight divi
sion, so there is no chance for him
to get another crack at Kilbane.
Charlie White, who won a hollow
victory over Mickey Sherjdan in Ra
cine Monday night, wants p whack at
Dundee. He also is willing to hook
with Leach Cross or Willie Ritchie.
White is not yet ripe for the Ritchie
game, but if he gets matched with
" Dundee the argument should be close
and hotly contested.
Bat Nelson, whose typewriter has
been idle for some months, is pound
ing the keys again. The former
champion is now after a bout with
Ad Wolgast, also a former light
weight champion. Bat proposes to
have the scrap pulled off in a Mil
waukee ring Oct. 13. He agrees to
-concede catchweights, and promoters
are trying to get Wolgast's name to
articles of agreement.
Leach Cross and Joe Rivers have
.signed for a twenty-round bout to be
pulled off at Vernon, CaL, the 7th or
14th of October. They Tiave met
twice before, each time in a draw.

After looking over the-records of
the Giants against the Cubs, Pirates
and Phillies this year, their license
to head the National League pennant
flight is not "shrouded in mystery,"
using the language of our best little
McGraw's men have met the min
ions of the Trojan twenty-one times
this year, and 14 times thev eot the
verdict, for a percentage of .667, only
two points unaer tnelr mark made
against the other clubs.
With the Pirates McGraw has made
Just as good a record. Trouble was
encountered in Phildelphia early in
the year, but the Quakers broke be
fore the Giant attack in a mid-season
series and were knocked so far down
they never fully recovered.
There lies the secret of McGraw'-s
success the consistent performance
of his team against every club In the
league. He has not fattened off of
the lowly boys and broken even with
the first division sauad. All looked
alike when stacked " against' the
