FEATURELESS DAY GOES TO
REGAN AND FRIENDS CLEAN UP
Back Colt Heavily and Cash Tickets
on Easy Victory — Col Jack
and Orilene Win
J. G. GRIFFIN
An almost featureless afternoon greet
ed turfites at Santa Anita yesterday, and
were it not for the fact that four post
time favorites and an opening first choice
came home to reward their backers even
the fall Burs who make up the form
playing brigade wo\ -d Have fe'.t the gen
eral depression. The one race In which
a favorite did not score was won by Hal,
which Frank Regan and his friends
backed from high price of 6 to 1 to 16
to 5 at ihu bugle's call.
The nearest approach to a big race
was a seven-furlong purse affair, which
called out a fair field of seven. It was
by far the claesy event of the card, and
Col. Jack, on the strength of the mediocre
bunch opposed to him, as well as his
last good race, was installed favorite at
odds-on. Sir Edward being next in fancy
and Timothy Wen having third call.
The way the public went to him would
not allow of Col. Jack to lose, and al
though Uugan had to really ride at the
end to stall off Sir Edward, the Holland
colt was returned a winner by a length.
After Sir Edward finished Summer Cloud,
again the victim of a bad ride, although
Dennison, who had the mount, was con
sidered a good boy last year in the east.
From the spectators' point of view the
race waa a good one. for the first three
horses rounded for home well bunched
and the winner could not be called with
certainty until the paddock had been
reached. Sir Edward was allowed to
make the pace clear to the final turn,
with Col. Jack lying second from the
»^x-furlong pole and Summer Cloud third.
Once straightened out Dugan Sat dow-n
to ride the favorite and with the better
going on the outside soon caught Sir
Edward. A sharp brush a hundred yards
out quickly put Jack in the lead and he
rolled home by r. length. Summer Cloud
fell away In the final sprint by virtue of
poor pilotage, and although third, was
four lengths behind when the winner's
head bobbed past Judge Hamilton's look
out. Dulcinea was gui:ty of a little early
speed, but had no chance when it came to
a real run.
Hal Well Meant
Althougu Senator Beckham and Barney
Oldfteld were fancied by the rabbis' to
beat him, Hal came in for a brilliant
play with the educated scrip, and Frank
Regan and his friends knocked the bot
tom out of 6 to 1 and sent the colt to
the post heavily backed. That the time
was ripe for a cleanup was shown by
Hal's clever performance, for he never
left the result In doubt and was an easy
winner over Senator Beckham and Bar
ney Oldfleld, which ran two-three re
Barney Oldfleld broke In front of the
field of six opposed to him, with Hal In
close pursuit. At the first calling sta
tion Barney decided to linger in the rear,
an.. Hal was sent to the front for his
own pace. Turning for home a lead of
two lengths was in order, with Senator
Beckham second and Charlie Doherty
third. Barney Oldfleld was fourth, and
at this point began to move along again,
but the leaders were too far ahead to
be caught. Hal was goirife easily at the
end, with Senator Beckham in no danger
of losing place honors to Barney.
Bellemence was well played In the
second nui.. er, but a short nose cheated
those who backed him out of their money.
The Sultan, coming from behind, was
just good enough to get up and won on
the post, with Lady Chiswell third.
The stare was good for all that had a
chance, and Bellemence broke out of the
mile chute like a winner. At the quarter
pole Prince of Orange and John C. Grauss
came along to take up the running, and
Bellemence was dropped back to third.
They turned for home with Grauss in the
lead, followed by Prince of Orange, Belle
mence and Joynei" in the order named.
The two front ones began to back up
at this pclnt, and Bellemence went on
about his business. Kunz had been tak
ing his time with the Sultan, but in the
stretch he made his move and soon over
hauled everything buY Bellemence. The
latter stuck on and was nailed just at the
•wire. Lady Chiswell made up all kinds
of ground, and was ready to grab the
show money wuen those in front of her
Shields Wins Another
John Shields turned loose his second
live one in as many starts when he sent
Adelbert Belle out to gather the change
. In the third race, a five and a half fur
long sprint for maiden 3-year-olds. The
farther she traveled the better Adelbert
got, and at the end Knapp was pulling
her head off six lengths in advance of
Pacific Electric, which waa in turn four
paces ahead of Andoche.
Knapp broke flying with Adelbert Belle,
and wastad no time In sending her along.
At the quarter and the half calling sta
tions Pacific Electric and Andoche were
close up in the order named, but just
before the final turn Big Bill gave the
filly her head and she tore along to amble
into the final stretch by five lengths.
This speed was maintained until near the
end, and six lengths were recorded as
separating the first two. [Both "Pacific
Electric and Andoche held onto their
early advantage and managed to gather
the short ends of the purse, although
Nadzu made an awful bid for the show
from a poor beginning. Banellen might
have had a chance with an even break,
but the getaway cooked vail hopes her
backers had to gather any clearing house
certificates. The same goes for Evran,
which will do to watch in a smaller field.

Vontellus was bumped all over the track
shortly after passing the stand for the
mile and a sixteenth journey, but after
getting out of the crush Burns worked
him up gradually and had no trouble In
annexing the purse. Foncasta and Elle
were next in line, with Mary Candlemas,
which showed all kinds of speed in the
early going, nowhere when the drive hap
Everything in the field got away on
time and Schilling broke his luck by
rushing Mary Candlemas across the
track in front of her field to assume the
lead. This happened right in front of
the judges' stand, and was so flagrant
a violation that the pagoda occupants
could not overlook it, lining Schilling
fifty bucks as soon as they could get
Mary Candlemas Stops
Mary Candlemas cut out some nice
running all the way around, with Elie
and Foncasta sticking along in close
attendance. Avontellus was last at the
quarter and Burns took him to tha out
side in order to get clear sailing. Turn
ing for home Mary Candlemas was still
in the lead, but she had shot her bolt
and Foncasta rushed In ahead of Elie.
Avontellus was well up by this time
and Burns set him down to win by three,
lengths. Foncasta and Elie finished
lengths apart, the next batch being heads
and noses apart at t" wire.
With going to suit her and a rather
poor lot opposing Orilene had to win the
closing number, and despite the short
price laid the, Curl mare got up from a
poor beginning in time to get home half
a length in front of J. R. Laughery, with
Stray set out from the seven furlong
chute like a wild horse, leading by five
or six lengths at every post. Into the
stretch the Ualney colt was five lengths
in advance of Nonie Lucille and .Bryan,
with Orilene fifth and J. R. Laughery
After seeing the bunch safely around
Stray shot his bolt and was accompanied
by Nonle in his retreat. Orilene and
Laughery rushed by Bryan and in a
Oriving finish the mare hung it on Laugh
ery by leHS than a length. Bryan just
nipped Stray at the wire, being a scant
head in front to gather show honors.
BANTA ANITA SMATTERINGS
O. C. Berdle, Arcadia's marshal, made
what he considered an important pickup
when he arrested Richard McKlnney and
sent him to Oakland for the offiqlals
there to deal with. McKinncy is accused
of rolling a pair of Inebriated "gents"
at Emeryville and was much wanted to
answer to the charge, when Berdle un
veiled his eagle eye and gathered him in.
Charlie Van Dusen will put his good
horse Dusty Miller, by Montana. What
Not, up for auction in the paddock Sat
urday. Dusty Miller won some nice
races at Ascot last year, and will un
doubtedly call for some lively bidding
when Smith puts him under the hammer.
A swltclr in Jockeys at the last minute
helped the play on Adelbert Belle, win
ner of the third race. Hennesey was
slated to ride the fllly, but his name
was taken off the jockey board and
Knapps substituted. The change was
evidently well meant, for Adelbert Belle
won winging far enough in advance of
her field to have time for a meal.
The fine handed Schilling by the Judges
will undoubtedly keep that capable
young man in a thoughtful mood for a
few days. Schilling la not winning with
his accustomed regularity right now, and
the fifty bucks he must pay the associa
tion would doubtless come in handy for
a New Year's present.
HENRY MAKES NOISY PLEA
FOR FOSTER PRODIGIES
Backer of Christopher-Levys Optimis
tic Over Winning Class Shown by
Proteges and Prophesies
Pennant for Them
Lea Henry, is now giving vent to a
piercing scream, and above the din you
can hear something which sounds like a
prophecy concerning the likelihood of his
recent foster horsehide acquisition, the
revised Christopher-Levys, crawling un
der the folds of the Winter league cham
The most lucid translation of Les'^ety
mological agony is offered in simple
verse. He will soon be prepared to fore
close on all local options held on thja
leadership rag— provided his prodigies
maintain their present formful stridt.
Almost the debut performance which
dragged the flock of young bloods under
the notice of the hail of fame directors
was the' stubborn refusal they made to
being annihilated completely by the
hurled abuses of one Johnson at Santa
Mister Johnson works under the eagle's
wing in the American league and la good
enough to go back down east to usher
at the next baseball hague. The Henry
prodigies, despite this array of royalty,
were unabashed, and while barely de
feated brought back a good account of
their visit in Podunk.
On the membership roll of the new
Chrlstopher-Levys may be found attached
the signatures of Buttrlck, Whitridge,
Klmmerle, Heinzman. Jim Dear, Reed,
Howard, Gilbert Dear and John Dear.
According to the names there is noth

M UDDERS TO
HORSES THAT LIKE GOING ARE
CARDED TO START
Feature Event, a Six Furlong, High
Weight Handicap, Draws Out
Nice Field and Should
IRVING B. CLEMENT
If the downpour continues during the
night the track will be a sea of mud
and the "web-foots" will have an inning.
There are plenty of mudders entered,
and every one carded to start in tho
feature event, a high weight handicap,
can negotiate tho going that will pre
vail, so that the contest Bhould alone be
worth the price of admission. Secretary
Smith allotted the weights bo cleverly
that it should be a hotly contested af
fair from the rise of tho barrier to the
finish. The other events bring forth the
best of those eligible and it will be no
clnc.i to pick the winners.
Two-year-old maidens are asked to go
seven furlongs in the first race, and if
form Is lived up to these three look like
the most likely contenders— Velma C,
Burnell, Waldorf. Velma's last two
races were excellent and she may lead
her field the entire distance. Burnell has
been running well of late and a little
Improvement may be looked for, so
should be second. Waldorf has not run
to his best form, and third is about all
for him today. Lois Cavanagh and Cru
zola have outside chances to be in tho
The second race is a hard one, as the
field is large and usually in such a
sprint tho«« with an alert boy at the
post as pilot have the best of it, so look
for Teacress to do the trick, as she is
a fast breaker. Escalante has been go-
Ing along well In his work, and should
be a dangerous factor all the way, with
a chance to beat Teacress. Bryan on his
race yesterday will have a look-in, as
he needed that heat to put him on edge.
Escamado Is the three-star danger, and
if, an outsider wins this Is the most
likely one to do it. Revolt is fit and
ready and bears watching.
King Wilda to Repeat
King Wilda likes a heavy track, as
he proved Saturday, and as Niblick and
East End don't like mud, has an ex
cellent chance to get first money. Gio
vanni Balerlo figures next best and if
Ryan gives him a good ride should be
a bang-up second. Sir Russell ran as
though short In his only effort here and
likes the mud, so look for him to be in
the money today. Ed Sheridan, Phil
Igoe and Harry Scott have an outside
chance to split the top three. Line of
Life cannot go in the sticky stuff.
The handicap is a tough proposition
and they figure so close it Is hard to
separate them. Magazine is a good
weight-carrier and likes mud, so may be
the one the winner will have to beat.
Sir Edward ran a good race yesterday,
and if he goes as well today should be
the contender. Gen. Haley had no
chance his last time out, as he was
practically left, but if Musgrave gets
him away today should be third with a
chance to win. Creston and Lord Nelson
have run some clever races and they
have to be given some consideration.
May finish Magazine, Sir Edward, Gen.
Jocund ran a grand race his last out,
when he was away poorly, then ran a
bang-up fourth behind some good horses,
so look for him to beat out Baron Esher
today. The latter Is in good form, but
can hardly trim Jocund. Mamie Algol
is fn good form right now and should
hold Big Bow safe as far as third money
Old Settler beat Harvel last time they
hooked up and there is no reason why
he should not do so again, as he Is a
fair sort of horse and can run from
anywhere. Ruscimo, if she runs back
to her last race, will be a dangerous
factor all the way, as she has speed and
can carry it a distance. Baboo likes a
heavy track and has a good chance to
be among the first three at the finish.
Outside of Altar Boy the others have
only a slight chance.
HUNTERS FIND DRAPERY
FOR TOAST AT CASTAIC
Hunters who tqok advantage of the
good weather Sunday to journey to
neighboring styx report verylng luck, but
the ones who braved the waves for the
week's stock of meat are unanimous in
telling of a plentiful crop of ducks.
The Venice coast was the most heavily
besieged an the blinds in that vicinity
were filled from daybreak to dark. The
ehootirg was almost as good in the open
also, except that the fowls persisted In
taking a little too far to sea.
Les Henry can speak for the gunners
who cruised In those parts, with a dozen
feathered sailors in his bag after two
hours' work. The rest of his party, in
cluding Bernal Dyas, continued the pic
nic and "loated in with forty quacks.
The quail eeekers are not quite co op
timistic, but several stocked the larder
fairly well, considering the widespread
dearth of birds.
Those who hive had such a warm
spot in their affections for the San Fer
nando regions are beginning to chill a
little, and more than one hunter found
nothing to bang In the cactus country.
Some of the fall ones, however, took the
third speed farther up the valley to
Castaic and found a bonanza of drapery
for their toast at the whiEtling station.
The falling off of the qu«il eupply
around Ban Fernando is attributed to the
native nlmrods who bombarded every
thing with a topknot that flies for miles
around. The birds hereafter should take
the Coast line.
W. R. Sterling was one of the travelers
who fell but little short of the limit
around the Castaic water banks.
FOR BEACHERS' CLAIM
The Santa Monica baseball team posted
$100 yesterday against the same amount
already put up by the Pasadena team as
a bet that the beach nine can defeat
the Crown City club with the same line
up as was used recently when the play
ers from the City of Roses chut out the
Seaslders on their own diamond by a
score of 2 to 0.
Considerable rivalry exists between
these amateurs as to their relative might.
The dispute will be settled in a double
header at Chutes park Sunday afternoon.

bNHOLZ MAY HAVE TO WAIVE
Watchers at Cabin Can See Nothing
but Dark Days in Store
for the Boer
With his battle with Boer Unholz only
a few days off it looks as though George
Memslc would be unable to make the
weight required in his articles of agree
mont and would go into the ring weigh
ing close to 138 pounds. Although he Is
working daily George seemß - indifferent
to the poundage question, and finds him
self heavier after each afternoon's labor.
If he pursues this lino of action and
falls to hit the beam at the 135-pound
mark Memsic will lose but little, unless
the Boer wonder refuses to meet him.
Agreements entered into by fighters/ are
usually loosely drawn documents, and this
is especially true with a battle of the
caliber which will top-line Friday's show.
About all that will happen should Memsic
fail to hit the Fairbanks In the right spot
is a chance for Unholz to withdraw,
which he will hardly do.
With things as they are it looks like a
-bigger cinch than ever for Memsic. While
his tonnage refuses to drop he is daily
gaining strength, and even the Boer's
most ardent supporters fail to see where
their man has a lookln. Unholz Is noth
ing but a hit-or-mlss sort of boy, and if
Georgio uses his cleverness this should
get the South African nothing but a
Memsic was watched by an admiring
throng at the cabin yesterday afternoon,
and those who witnessed his performance
went away well satisfied that he would
win. He is more aggressive and more
rugged than ever, and if allowed to make
his own weight will undoubtedly be an
Unholz is working away at the East
Side club with Rawhide Kelly and his
sparring partners, and la confident that
he will give Memslo a hard argument.
The Boer slams away at his opponents
with plenty of force and roughness, but
when they stand off and box him he is
at a loss for a style that proves effective.
The weight question is easy for Unholz.
Without doing an extra amount of road
work he Is already at the desired figure,
and were he called on to do so the Boer
could make the 183-pound mark and not
lose a bit of strength.
So the question of the minute Is: Will
Memsic spoil his strength by artificial
reducing, or will he make Unholz waive
the weight question or else give up all
hopes of a battle? It's one or the other,
and if the Boer lets him In at above 135
it's a nice little bet that Memsic will not
have much trouble in being returned a
FATHER AND SON

SAN BERNARDINO EDITOR WILL
TRAVEL MANY MILES
Boy Six Years Old to ' Accompany
Parent on Jaunt Across Coun.
try and Back to This
And now comes a perambulating
"Lochlnvar out of the west from the
vicinity of San Bernardino with a
brand new plan for annihilating dis
tance and incidentally the reputation
of the walking- Weston via the shanks
route in the person of J. A. Seabury,
formerly city editor of the San Ber
nardino Index. Mr. Seabury will bo
accompanied by his little son Arthur, a
midget six years old.
As named by the pedestrian himself
the pedal performance is entitled "A
Ten Thousand Mile Father and Son
Teddy Bear Trip." The general limi
tations of the Jaunt are to cover on
foot a route through every state and
territory in the Union and return to
the starting place, Los Angeles, be
fore August 3, 1911. The first step will
be taken at 10 o'clock New Year's
The route planned is almost directly
across the United States through the
desert and southern states to the At
lantic coast and back again to this
side of the continent in the boundaries
of the northern territory.
The first few days will be taken by
easy stages to become accustomed to
the pace, but before two weeks are
passed the travelers will be well upon
their way over the desert. On account
of the sandy and waterless wastes at
the beginning of the trip the start is
made at thia season when water Js
plentiful on the desert.
It is the plan of the walking firm to
carry all camp accessories with them,
but these will be limited to the plain
necessities for comfort. The kit of the
senior partner will include a etn-pound
haversack, miner's silk tent, nine
pounds; canteen, four pounds; revol
ver and cartridges, one pound, and two
blankets. The care of a Jointed tent
pole and the tent stakes have been en
trusted to the smaller traveler.
Such expeditions are not strang;e
the elder Seabury, who bears a world
wide reputation among walkers, and
even the young' adventurer has an ex
traordinary pedigree as a ground
gainer, considering his brief years for
experience. The aptitude of the child
for such Journeys was first noticed by
his father when the lad was a midget
of three, In long Jaunts over the San
Bernardino mountains. Since his first
trials at pedaling the boy has paced
up to thirty miles per day on speed
A similar trip of the same distance
as the one now being: undertaken was
started by Mr. Seabury a few years
ago In company with another news
paper man, but the expedition waa
abandoned at the request of Mr. Sea
bury's partner, who quailed at the
dimensions of the long 1 stride.
Regardless of other failures, which
by no means have been as numerous as
his successes in the walking line,, the
present trip will bo completed unless
sickness or the condition of the infant
plobe trotter demands a stop. Mr.
Seabury is confident of the strength of
his son, however, and says the little
one has long be*n in training for the

MEN GO TEN FAST ROUNDB AT
Fight Looks Like Decision for Spring
Valley Boy in Ninth, but Kelly
Evens Honors at the
By Associated Press.
MJL.WAUKEE. Dec. 30.— Hugo Kelly of
Chicago and Billy Papke of Sptlng Val
ley, 111., fought ten fierce rounds to a
draw before the Badg-er A. C tonight.
Both fighters started in hammer and
tongs fashion at the first tap of the gong,
using right and left with frightful effect.
Kelly knocked Papke down, tho Spring
Valley boy taking advantage of the
The first round was easily Kelly's. The
second round ended with honors even,
Kelly having the first half and Papke
evening up In the last half. In the third
round Papke drew blood from Kelly's
right eye and Kelly in turn jabbed
Papke's face, also drawing blood, the
round ending with an even break.
The fourth round was easily Paqke's,
he having floored Kelly with a vicious
right to the body, following this up with
rights and lefts to the face with good
effect and drawing blood freely.
The fifth round was fast and furious for
the first half, both fighters easing up to
ward the end, Kelly seeming to have the
better of the round.
Both men bored in with rights and
lefts to the head and body in the sixth,
Kelly uppercuttlng with good effect.
Papke slipped to the floor In this round,
but recovered without losing any ground.
Hnnnrn were even.
The seventh round was Papke's, Kelly
being well winded at the end.
In the eighth Kelly did considerablft
clinching and seemed very weary, but at
this point the honors were a standoff.
The fight In the ninth looked very much
like a decision for Papke, who had Kelly
wobbly from a fusillade of rights and
lefts and uppercuts to the body and head,
the gong alone saving the Chicago man.
In the last round Kelly came up strong
and evened up any advantage scored by
Papke up to that time. Kelly used right
and left with good effect, keeping up a
hot pace until the zong sounded, leaving
nothing for the referee to do but to de
clare the bout a draw.
The decision was well received.
JEFFRIES DECLINES TO NAME
Englishmna and Hebrew Both Down

Asks for Fast, Clean
By Auoclated Press.
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 30.-James J.
Jeffries, the champion heavyweight of
the world, who is to referee the Morafl-
Attell contest for the featherweight
championship of the world, arrived, here
today from Los Angeles. Referring to
the coming contest he said:
"I hear that the Englishman Is a tough
nut. If he is ' the man they say he is
he ought to give Attell a hard rub, but
I won't attempt to name the winner. It
wouldn't be the right thing to do."
Jeffries vigorously denied the imputa
tion published in the east that he was
Inclined to favor the Englishman. He
"All I can say is that both fighters
will look alike to me, as they always
have. If they clinch and hold on I will
step in and break them, but so long as
they keep fighting I will not interfere.
They can fight their heads off, and the
harder they fight the better I will be
pleased, for it will mean less work for
me. Moran need not have any fear about
me butting in. When I was fighting I
liked to have my referee officiate."
Moran will do no boxing before his
contest with Abe Attell for the world's
championship on New Year's day. His
work for the next two days will be prin
cipally on the road with the lightest of
gymnasium work as a Sort of finisher.

INSURANCE MEN I
DETERMINED TO STOP
Machine Burglars and Whittier Crimi
nals Not the Same, but Confess
staiis Are Expected tg
Clear the Mystery
The Firemen's Fund Insurance company
of San Francisco le badk of the prosecu
tion of automobile thieves which is about
to be inaugurated in Los Angelea with
the avowed plan of driving such male
factors out of Los Angeles.
Further inquiry yesterday by the police
and the Southern detective agency oper
atives revealed that six men compose the
"gang which has been stealing autos in
the flower city and that the Whlttler
robbery was the work of other criminals.
It was at first thought both operations,
were by the same gang.
The head of tho auto gang Is declared
to be a young man of an estimable fam
ily, who, by hla knowledge of the ma
chines gained through experience as a
chauffeur, has been able not only to get
away with five machines, but to so dis
guise them by interchanging parts that
the work of Investigation has been ren
dered much more difficult.
The insurance company officials have
grown weary of paying damages, on ma
chines which had been ruined after be
ing stolen, and instructed Attorney
George L. Sanders and the Southern
agency to stop the practice at any cost.
It Is believed that through confessions
by the men now held in jail the en
tire plan of operation will be known to
the police shortly, and for a time at
least auto owners need not worry aVout
their property on wheels.
