The best indication of Johnny Cou
lon's condition is the fact that coast
fans who have seen him at his train
ing stunts have established him a fa
vorite over Kid Williams in their im
pending clash for the bantamweight
The fight followers of California
have also seen Williams in action re
cently, and are in a position to judge
the merits of the two little fellows.
They watched Williams put away
their own idol, Campi, and know that
he is a tough puncher.
Coulon is now working diligently
with his sparring partners, as the
fight is only eight days off.
Negotiations are on for a fight be
tween Charlie White and Johnny Kil
bane, featherweight champion. White
is willing to make the match if the
weight is fixed for 133 pounds ring
side. Kilbane can make much less
than that, and may balk at giving the
Chicagoan so much poundage. The
fight would draw a big house, how
ever, and Kilbane would not lose pres
tige by a defeat, as he would be go
ing out of his class.
Willie Ritchie will leave Chicago
Wednesday for New York, from
whence he will sail Saturday for Lon

Pirates Slip Reds a Sensation
Benzln No-Hit Class.
Fred Clarke trundled his pulpy
Pirates into town this morning for
a two-game series on the West Side,
and there was not the same air of
confidence among the Pittsburgers
that marked their work on their last
From leading their league by a
wide margin the Pirates have slid to
third place, and the pace they have
been traveling the last two weeks is
