Charlie White may not be the rec
.ognized lightweight champion, but
'the way he and his manager, Nate
Lewis, are going after the coin, indi
cates that the Chjcagoan is ably
qualified to hold down the crpwn.
White, on the strength of his win
over Willie Ritchie, is in great de
mand now, and offers are coming in
for fights from all over the counp
try. Purses are being tendered him
that would have been snapped up a
few months ago.
Charlie's latest is to refuse a $5,000
purse for a meeting with Young Say
lor in Milwaukee July 4. White is
booked for a theatrical tour, and
Lewis said the purse was not large
enough to tempt Turn.
Nothing more has been done about
the proposed go between White 'and
Freddie Welsh in London. It is doubt
ful if the Englishmen will offer the
coin demanded by the local scrapper.
Knockout Brown is getting some
good fights. He is, billed to fight
Mike Gibbons in Boston Tuesday
night. The go wll be fpr 12 rounds
and a decision will be rendered,
Brown is doing iris training at a local
gymnasium, and will not arrive in
Boston until the day before the bat

Both the National and Federal
Leagues can learn a lesson from the
American in the niatter of hurrying
games and sustaining the interest of
the fans. t , .
Yesterday's combat between the
Sox am Naps'require.just an hour
and 23 minutes to run off. True, it
was a light hitting affair, and only
two runs were made. But during the
recent Giant-Cub series one of the
games, in which the score was 3 to
1, lasted twq hours and 32 minutes.
The practice of throwing out a new
ball as soon as a foul is hit is re
sponsible, for part of the speed in the
