. Fred Fulton won a decision victory
' over Porky Flynn in New Orleans
last night, but the Rochester masto
don is not championship caliber now,
and his showing proyes he has a long
i and rocky road to travel before he
can challenge for the crown now held
by Jess Willard and receive any con
sideration. On the fight Fulton made last
night there are several men who are
his superiors. Frank Moran would
surpass the brand of battling put
up by Fulton, and so would Jim Cof
fey. Jack Dillon, light as he is, would
be a fine little investment in the bet
ting line if matched with the north
The fight went the limit of twenty
rounds, and only in the last few did
Fulton do any execution worthy of
note. He woke up then with his long
straight left and planted it to ad
vantage in Flynn's midsection. But
earlier he had been completely out
fought He knew nothing about in
fighting and was completely mystified
every time Flynn came to close quar
ters. Fulton had no defense for that
land of attack.
He was peppered by Flynn's short
jabs, receiving a cut over his eye. In
the fourth round Fred claimed he had
been hit low, but the referee disal
lowed the claim and the crowd howl
ed at Fred derisively.
Lumping the results of the battle,
Fulton showed himself a novice in
ring generalship, a willing man, but
1 one knowing little about his work.

franchise, for $500,000.
And now comes Harry Ackerland,
holder of the 10 per cent remaining,
and disposes of it to Weeghman for
$75,000 or maybe more. The price
was at least the figure named. Figur
ing the value of Ackerland's stock at
the value put on the Cubs when
Weeghman bought, he should have
been bought out for about $55,000.
All of which gives rise to a suspi

Maybe it didn't include the value of
