BOXING ALL THE LATEST DOPE BASEBALD
Welsh Wins From Saylor on Fou!
White in Hard Luck.
Freddie Welsh, English lightweight
and champion shadow boxer of the
world, was awarded the decision over
Young Saylor in the ninth round at
Winnipeg on a foul. The fight was
scheduled to go 12 rounds. Welsh
was knocked out by the foul punch.
Saylor "had been warned against
striking low, but failed to heed the
referee's words. Up to the ninth
round Welsh had all the better of the
milling. He reached his opponent at
will in several rounds and opened
cuts on his nose and mouth.
Welsh's cleverness entitles him to
consideration from the leading light
weights now doing business. He will
go after a match with the winner of
the Leach Cross-Willie Ritchie battle,
and failing to land one of those boys
may book up with Johnny Dundee.
Milwaukee promoters will have to
come across with a big guarantee if
they expect" to secure Harlem Tommy
Murphy to box Charlie White. Fol
lowing Wolgast's injury, which forced
him to cancel the fight scheduled
with White for Friday night, Cream
City ring men got in communication
with Murphy. Tommy was severely
punished by Packey McFarland last
week and it will take a big money
plaster to heal his wounds soon
enough for him to meet the Milwau
The fight will be at least postponed
until next Monday, and may be can
Efforts are being made to match
Mike Gibbons and Packey McFar
land, the star 140 to 145-pound light
weight. Packey will let Gibbons
come in at 145 pounds ringside.
Eddie McGoorty will start training
here this week for his bout with Jack
Dillon in Milwaukee Nov. 3. Dillon
is tough game and McGoorty wants
plenty of preparation for the tussle.
Bresnahan May Manage Dodgers in
1914 Also, He May Not.
Roger Bresnahan may be the man
ager of the Brooklyn National League
team in 1914.
This rumor, which gained circula
tion here in the middle of last sea
son, to be emphatically denied at the
time by Presidents Murphy and Eb
bets, has been started anew in Brook
lyn, and surrounding circumstances
bolster it up.
Actually no definite negotiations
have been opened in regard to the
Dodgers securing Bresnahan. Wheth
er Brooklyn will get him in exchange
for other players, whether he will
be bought outright, or whether ha
will go to Brooklyn at all is a matter
of conjecture, but President Ebbets
js hot after the Harp, and it is under
stood the two have held several con
ferences in the last few days. It is
significant in this connection tha't
Bresnahan has not been with the Cub
barnstormers on their present trip.
Brooklyn fans and critics are de
manding the scalp of Bad Bill Dahlen,
who has piloted the Dodgers for sev
eral seasons. The clamor is so in
sistent that Ebbets will probably have
to yield to it, though he is personally
a great admirer of the" former Giant
Two men besides, Bresnahan have
been mentioned for the managerial
berth. One is Jake Daubert, first
baseman. The other is Harry Smith,
manager of Newark, pennant win
ners in the International League.
Ebbets does not favor the player
manager system, looking back over
the long list of star players who have
failed as leaders. Smith is an idol
in Newark, and the fans 'there will
set up an awful holler if he is 'taken
With these two names eliminated,
Brooklyn must turn somewhere else
