Merrill, Acker, DeLappe, the Me.
BFaddens, Hempel and Hamilton
.Expected to Work In To*
morrow's Game
• Several days of hard and consistent
training has put the All-Coach football
•,team into good condition and they are
going {into the gam^ tomorrow confi
dent of their ability to t?Jce the meas
ure of the Indians. The fact that cv-
Vry man on the eleven Is an old player
who thoroughly understands the points
of the game has enabled them to get
Into. form much quicker than a college
.While every position will be filler! by
a player who Is a real football man
there are certain men who, outclass
their team mates, and who are count
ed on to win the game.
I The fullback and the man on each
side of him are unequestlonably the
three best backs that ever lined up be
hind a Southern California line. "Big
Ed" Merrill, last year's Occidental
coach, and for four years one of Be
lolfs stars, will play teft half. He Is
a giant and in spite of his weight he
Is the fastest man on the team, with
the possible exception of Hamilton.
Acker and DeLappe, the great U. S.
C. backs, stand In a class by them
selves and are expected to do great
work. If the line can give the backs
the proper support the Indians will
have to look to their laurels.
, McFadden at tackle will prove a
tower of strength 'to his team and the
Shermanttes will probably steer clear
of his side of the line after a few
tries, for he proved the Waterloo of
some of the greatest line' plungers
Berkeley ever produced, when he
guarded the left side of Stanford's line
for four, years.
:His brother will play the end next
him and this assures the safety of
l ;that flank of the coach team. Heinpel
will hold down the other end, with two
of his Pomona. stars l^etween him and
center. In case one of the backs is
knocked out Hempel will shift and
Hamilton, who was tttr four years the
star end of the University of Penn
sylvania, will take his place.
The , remainder of the . team are J
decidedly the fastest company they
have ever played in, but they are all
consistent and heady players and can
be counted on to do their share.
' Following are the weights of the
men and the positions they will oc
cupy: '. " :
;■; Hempel, left end, 168; Moorman, left
tackle, 185; Lull, left guard, 183; White,
center, 176; Handel, right guard, 185;
McFadden, right tackle, 180; McFad
den,' right end, 176; Roesch, quarter,
148; Merrill, left half, 205; DeLappe,
full, 1 172; Acker, right half, 180.

pire, and Traeger referee.
Champion Jim Gauges His Blows, as
; He It Not Booming the Under
taking Business
.Champion Jim Jeffries was In a story'
telling mood the other evening, during
which he said:.
: "You know that fellow Munroe knew
right down in his heart that he did not
have a ghost of a show and that his
part in that fight was a gigantic bluff.
I tried to put him out in the first punch,
but the lucky dog ducked in time to
keep me from knocking his head off.
He saw I meant business and as ws
clinched he said: Jeff, don't make
a sucker out of me, let me make a little
; "I stepped back, looked him square in
the eye and replied: 'You did knock me
down, in Butte, did you?' and then,
whang, I caught him square on the
jaw, ' knocked out two teeth and sent
hlmfdown for the count. I had .to
laugh at the big dub, as he slowly got
up in time to stop my right, which
closed one of his eyes and broke his
nose. I rushed him again. Intending to
give him the haymaker, but the gong
sounded for the end of the round.
"When we got up for the second
round I hit him again and sent him to
the ' floor. Just then I saw Graney
look ■at Munroe and I saw what was
coming. I tried hard to get him again
before Graney could stop the fight, but
Eddie was too quick for me, and I
didn't have the satisfaction of seeing
Just how hard I could hit him."
.Jeff was then asked If he ever hit a
man as hard as he could. The cham
pion held up his right arm, and doub
ling his flst, replied: "No, I never did.
I don't want to go to jail. lam afraid
if I ever let that fist go as hard as I
can there would be a funeral. No, I
generally gauge my blows and make
them Just hard enough to make the
other fellow know he was hit.*'
J When asked who had stopped- thn
hardest blows from his fist, Jeffr!en
said that he guessed it must have been
Sharkey, for the ex-eallor had his ribs
done, up In a plaster cast for several
weeks and he haa never been able to
fight since. r -

Coast State Has Turned Out the Best
Scrappers During Past Years.
Massachusetts Second
An expert on fistic affairs figured out
the other night just what state has
turned out the best pugilists during the
last ten years. It took him just ten
minutes to hit on California. Not be
ing satisfied with this, he calculated
what state came next, and he picked
out Massachusetts, and chose New
York for third place.
Pugilists are usually developed In the
localities where boxing is allowed by
law, or where the sport has plenty of
encouragement. Little ' fellows witn
ring ambitions, who want to see their
names in the - newspapers and enjoy
the praise that is the lot of the suc
cessful fighter, take to the game quick
er than the big nvsn, and consequently
the business has more representatives
among the smaller fry than among the
Natives of California
California has been the stamping
ground of bruisers for years, and that
Is one of the reasons why that state
produced so many of the boxers who
have made fistic history. Natives of
that state point- with pride to the fact
that Jim Jeffries, Jim Corbett and Joe
Choynski came from California. Jef
fries was born In Ohio, but he was so
ycung when he teft that state that He
objects to being called anything but a
Callfornian. Jeffries is a champion—
the best man, experts admit, that the
ring has seen, or will see in many a
day. . . . ,
California has contributed to the
ring such fighters as Solly Smith, who
at one time fought George Dixon for
the feather weight championship of
the world at Coney 1 Island; Georgo
Green, the original Dal Hawkins; Jack
Clancy, the hero of many contests in
England; Al Nelll, a clever middle
weight; Atec Greggains,- who fought
over eighty rounds with Martin (Buf
falo) Costello during the good old
fighting days at Coney Island; Dal
Hawkins, the lightweight who could
punch like a heavyweight, and others.
Of the recent men who have done
•well with the gloves it has produced
B'rankle Nell, the former bantan:
champion of the. world; Abe Attell, as
good a little man as ever put up his
hands; Jimmy Brltt, the pride of San
Francisco; Eddie Hanlon, the young
ster with the heavy blow, and Monte
Attell, brother to Abe, who many
think will shine as a boxing etar later
on. This Is an array that no other
state can boast of.
Massachusetts Looms Up
Coming east, Massachusetts looms
up as the locality where oome great
fighters came from. First we have -the
once mighty John L. Sullivan; then
th<> late George Godfrey, the good ne
gro and the pride of his ruce; I'atny
Sheppard, a kingpin In his day; Dick
O'Brien, a corking good middleweight,
end Mysterious Hilly Smith.
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 31.— The
news has been received here by the
owner of Chamalon Senator P. that
the great Held trial winning pointer
has died at Brucevllle, Ind. Senator I*,
was the winner ot the champion stake
Pacific coast field trials lit 1899 and sec
ond in the all-age stake of the same
year. He - was sent east to compete
with the best dogs there and won
many prises, notably the Manitoba
champion stake In 1902. v|Mgffil§t
It Is Hinted That Boston Club Will
Offer Mike Fisher a Job— An.
gelcno Hears Story and Talks
This is no joke or pipe dream. It Is
straight stuff, though many won't be
j lieve it. There was a real live rumor
on the street yesterday that Mike
Fisher would be tendered the position
of manager of the Boston National
club. Others besides Fisher heard the
rumor, so it is not a piece of pre.ss
agent work on the part of the kinc:.
Fisher was called upon by two corres
■ pondents of eastern papers yesterday
and interviewed in regard to the offer.
Fisher freely imparted to the seekers
of news all he kne^v\ which was not a
terrible lot. He said he had heard
that Boston wanted his services, but
as yet no offer had been officially ten
dered him. "I want them to under
stand that I'm no cheap guy," observed
Angelo, lighting a fresh Owl. "Mind
you, Boston as yet has not asked me
for my terms, and it may not. How
ever, If it does I will come high. I
am not a petty king, who can be bought
for 10 cents."
"Would you go if they offered you
Mugsey 1 McGraw's salary, $10,000 a
year?" asked the writer, to feel Mike
"I can't say that I would, but I
would consider it," retorted the tiger
tamer with a serious face. "Because
McGraw is willing to work for $10,000
don't think that I would jump at the
chance. I'll bet if Igo back there I'll
be before the limelight oftener'than
McGraw. I would .shake that Boston
club up and give the fans something to
talk about." ;";.,.',;
■ "Would you take back any of the Tig
ers?" he was asked.
"Now, wait until I have been offered
the job and I have accepted before you
ask me to discuss plans," said the king.
"Then it will be time enough to talk.
In the meantime I will continue to de
vote my time to the interests of the Ta
coma club."

"There seems to be a general im
pression that I got my nickname of
'Silk' through some quality I may pos
sess &a an umpire," said "Silk"
O'Laughlin, in response to a query.
"When I was a boy I had long ring
lets, of which my mother and sister
were very proud. Boy-like, however, I
never exactly liked the adornment and
many a scrap I had with the other kids
over the curls. v
"At last, I begged so hard, my mother
decided that I might have the offending
curls cut oft, much to my delight and
the grief of my sister.
"To the. barber's we went then and
the scissors man made his attack on
my pate. , As he Was clipping the curls
my sister, a few years older than I,
began to cry. ■■'':','■':■:''■
"It's a imrning shame to cut off the
beautiful silk," she said, stroking one
of the fallen curls.
"Next day, as I was passing the sh/Dp,
the barber spoke to me and, not know
ing my name, called me 'Silk.' The
name stuck and it's still with me, as
the boys who were with me at the time
passed it on to others."
Brownsberger Reception
The public is invited to an entertain
ment at the Brownsberger Home school
953 West Seventh street Tuesday, Janu
ary 3, at 2 o'clock. Dr. Glen Me Wil
liams "the laughing man," the gifted
humorist and lyceum entertainer of San
Francisco, will be the attraction of the
hour. Occupying a field peculiarly his
own he aims to Instruct as well as to
Operations Not Always Necessary
Doctors Frequently Mistaken.
"I suffered untold agony with piles
for over three years. Two doctors
told me nothing but an operation
would cure me. I tried different
remedies, but nothing did me any
good until I used Pyramid Pile Cure.
I bought six fifty-cent boxes at the drug
store and now I can do my work and
go out, where before ■ I spent most
of my time lying down. I thank God
for giving the discoverer the knowl-
edge to make such a cure. I recom-
mend It to all my friends, and If I
ever have piles again will certainly
use this remarkable remedy. You can
use this in any way you wish to make'
known the wonderful merit of Pyramid
Pile Cure."— Mrs. Win. Mucky, 81 Mar-
shall Street, Elizabeth, N. J.
The experience of this lady Is that
of thousands of others who have been
assured that nothing short of an oper-
ation would rid them of this distress-
Ing complaint. On the face of it, it
appears as If too many surgeons oper-
ate in order that they may keep their
hand In, and lose no portion of their
skill; then, again, too many surgeons
are anxious to experiment (like the
scientific man in Mark Twain's pa-
thetic story of the dog and her little
puppy), and do not have proper regard
for a patient's physical welfare or con-
We advise every sufferer to think
twice' before submitting to an opera-
tion tor piles, and suggest that thOße
interested write to the Pyramid Drug
Co., ■ Marshall. Mich., for their littlo
book on the causes and cure of piles,
which Is neat free for th« a«kln«.
