Dillon Whips Cus Christie
Jimmy Duffy in Bad.
Jack Dillon had a field day with
Gus Christie in Milwaukee, winning
an easy decision in ten rounds. Dil
lon's first blow floored Christie, and
he increased his lead with every suc
ceeding punch. Christie was almost
out in the seventh, but managed to
stall through to the gong.
Jimmy Duffy of Buffalo is in a
peculiar position. He has u match
carded with Charlie White in Mil
waukee next Monday night. He has
wired that he has a match with Willie
Beecher in Syracuse the same night.
Duffy said he would fill the latter en
gagement, as he feared the wrath of
the New York boxing, commission if
he ran out.
The Buffalo boy seems to forget
there is a commission in Wisconsin,
and one that will stand for very little
fooling. It has just inflicted a six
months' suspension on Eddie Mc
Goorty for passing up a fight he had
Judge Uhlir in the court'of domes
tic relations insulted Spike Kelley
yesterday. Kelley's wife charged he
did not support their child. The pugi
list told the judge he could not pay
his wife $6 a week, as returns from
his ring engagements were small.
Judge Uhlir then told him to go to
work and earn enough to pay the
Packey McFarlarid arranged for
two more fights yesterday, the first
against Kid Alberts at Syracuse Nov.

will celebrate McParland's entry into
the 142-pound class.

Koestner, New Pitcher, Signs Up
With Cubs Murphy Leaves.
Spring was in the air -around the
Cub offices yesterday. The reason
was the arrival of Elmer Koestner, a
pitcher last season with Oakland of
the Pacific Coast League.
Koestner will be a Cub in 1914,
during the spring season, at least;,
and drifted in to sign his coutract,
showing commendable enterprise.
The promptness with which he sign
ed up, however, does not argue well
for his success as a big league star.
With Koestner was Buck O'Brien,
who was sent to the coast by the
White Sox last -summer. Buck did
some fine press work for Koestner.
The latter lives in Illinois, and stop
ped off on his way home to fix up the
Koestner is no raw recruit. He has
been voting for quite some period,
being with Cleveland when Addie
Joss was fighting pitching duels with
Ed Walsh. He was not up to the
mark then, however, and was shunt
ed back to the "sticks." Now he is
thoroughly seasoned, and says he will
be a winner with the Cubs.
Needless to say, Koestner is a "tall
and rangy" guy.
President Murphy of the Cubs but
toned up his desk today and hopped
a rattler for New York. He will sail
Thursday for England. He is not tak
ing a typewriter. Curses!
Joe Mandot, the New Orleans
lightweight, who arrived here yester
day, has signed to meet Al Gilbert in
St. Louis New Year's Day.
