THE championships of the fleet and
the amateur championships of
Southern California, which have
been pending all week, were finally set
tled at the Chutes yesterday morning.
Fierce milling marked most of the card,
and only one unsatisfactory bout or de
cision was recorded. There was no fight
in the 145-pound division, because W.
J. Martin did not show up, the honors
passing to H. J. Lelande of the Los
Angeles Athletic club without a strug
The big event of the day, that for the
middleweight championship of the
navy, resulted in a victory for Heine
Tlghe of the Alabama, who gained a
decision over Henry Tralnor of the
Vermont at the end of six hard rounds.
On the previous day the boys indulged
in a grueling mill for over two rounds,
but rain Interfered before a verdict
could be rendered.
This time the husky sailors went right
through to the end, and, although the
loser, Tralnor was cheered by every
one of the 6000 spectators because of his
gameness. Tighe had it on him all the
way and gave him an awful beating,
but Tralnor's spirit made him stay on
his feet in the face of certain defeat.
Tighe made his own fight right from
the start, and in the first, second and
third rounds floored his opponent re
peatedly. The Vermont's representa
tive came back stronger in the fourth
period and Tighe was forced to give
ground before his fierce onslaughts. The
Alabaman protected himself well, and
most of Tralnor's wallops were futile.
Tighe Scores Often
The fifth and sixth found Tighe again
scoring the effective punches, and at
the end there was nothing to do but
award him the plumb. His footwork
and general knowledge of the game
were far superior to that of his adver
sary, and the only thing that kept
Tralnor in the ring was his courage.
The New Jersey added another cham
pionship to the one gathered in by
Lullnski earlier In the week when
Schlossberg won the heavyweight scrap
from Altieri of the Missouri. The vic
tor seemed afraid of being hit, and
went to the mat under mild punish
ment, but at the end of tbe. poor bout
he was strong and Jeffries handed him
the belt.
Tighe's running mate, Rafferty,
scored a victory over Fredrick of the
Illinois when the featherweights were
called on to perform, being awarded a
decision at the end of the sixth round.
Fredrick proved himself to be a willing
youngster, but without any punches,
and Rafferty's straight left played hav
oc with him all during the engagement.
Rafferty unshipped a right to the jaw
in the third round that sent the other
boy through the ropes, but he, came
back for more—and was accommodated.
Walla Wheeler and Gus Fratello,
both of the Los Angeles Athletic club,
acted like they had it in for each oth
er, and a slashing battle was the result.
Wheeler had it on the other lad, and
was given the decision at the end of the
scheduled three rounds. Fratello was
outclassed all the way, and when the
fight was over was the first to congrat
ulate his successful opponent.
Hugo Wins Finals
F. McDanlels stacked up against a
live one when he tackled John Hugo in
the 125-pound finals, and after being
floored in the first round and beaten
unmercifully in the second was saved
by the officials, who stopped the show.
It was thought that after being sent
to the mat twice in the second act Mc-
Danlels didn't have a chance, and Jeff
was saved the trouble of counting the
necessary ten seconds.
Sam COUlter, L. A. A. <'.. was too
much for Jack Hpyes, unattached, and
in the second round the club man
whipped one over on the point that put
an end to the battle. Hayes dropped
like a log. after making a gam.' show
ing, and the death toll sounded over
him. . . „,,
Cliff Reuman, the champion middle
weight of the Pacific coast, appeared In
line for a bit of trouble when he hooked
up with George Shia. but class again
told and Reuman won In the first
round. Shia started out like a wild
man, and had Reuman blocking and
stalling to recover from his surprise.
Finally Cliff made up his mind and
planted his opponent with a left on the
jaw. When he arose Bhia found a
right waiting for him, and Jeff called
a halt. Shia refused to believe he was
out of it, and he and Reuman got to
gether again, the seconds finaly pull
ing them apart.
C Jorgstoff, the Athletic club heavy
weight, put E. D. Morrison, sporting
the same colors, out In the first round
of their battle. Jorgstoff stalled around
for a minute, waiting for an opening,
and when he found it there was noth
ing to do but ring down the curtain on
Morrison. -~*

Magnificent Arena Contains but" Few
Fans and the Club Is Forced
to Meet a Big '
MIKE -Jeffries' Vernon, fight
Jlin Jeffries' new Vernon fight
JJJL arena last night by decisively
whipping Jimmy Gardner for twenty
five rounds and at the same time show
ing about a thousand fans that his op
ponent is a muchly overrated man.
The Twin was never in danger, and
with the exception of about two rounds
was never outpointed or outfought dur
ing any stage of a poor battle.
Not much of a bunch turned out to
the ..arming, if you can call sit
ting around for three hours without any
overhead shelter, by that name. Less
than a thousand spectators shivered
around in tho big arena, and there was
no fighting on the bill conducive to cir
culating their blood until overcoats
were not in demand. Everything tend
ing toward a perfect evening's sport
was there— the fighters.
To do the new club Justice, lt must
be said that the depressing surround
ings, including the vast expanse of
empty seats and the distance of some
of the customers from the, ring, went a
long way toward making the fights ap
pear poorer than they really were. Had
the Sullivan-Gardner mill been held in
the Cabin, where the fans were per
fectly at home, there would have been
some racket, but as it was nothing In
the line of noise was very much In evi
dence. ;--'; '';''?'■';''. - >i ' -'■ '^
The appointments of the new club
were perfect, and there was none of the
crowding and disagreeable hunting or
seats experienced at some- shows staged
not so many miles away from here. Ihe
size of the house was a huge disap
pointment to Jeffries and Long, and
they were forced to dig into the old
gray sock and meet a big deficit be
fore Sullivan and Gardner could be In
duced to go on. At that the new pro
moters were game, and sooner man
disappoint their few patrons they
coughed up to the demands of the fight
ers. _ '•.
Not Much Good
To get back to the fight itself, it was
not well liked in many ways. Ever
since the match was made we have
been hearing what an unusually top
notcher welter Jimmy Gardner was, but
if last night's sample Is to be taken as
the regula- stock, he is the rankest
kind of a dub and ought to be mingling
in the preliminary ranks instead of
claiming the highest honors in his di-
V Sullivan was there all the time and
did all that he said he would Had It
rested with his opponent there would
not have been even the semblance of a
fight, but Mike kept after Jimmy and
with long Jabs and an-occasional swing
to the face or body cut him up so that
he bled freely. Any credit for amus
ing or Interesting the spectators must
co to the '."win.
g For the first few rounds every one
present thought that Gardner was Just
feeling Sullivan out but as the fight
progressed they awakened to the fact
that Jimmy w-as nothing but.a dub
Along about the tenth round the crowd
which had been yelling for .Gardner
in the spasmodic periods when any
kin* of a noise resounds through the
empty pavilion, began to warmi up to
the Twin, and from then on to the end
he was easily the popular mMI ° the
two. He was deserving of ".too, for
in addition to his cleverness Mike was
at times prone to mix and make Gard
ner _-ive ground before him.
With the bum preliminary, which
was won by Lauder over Bell out of
The way, the main eventers lost no
rime in crawling under the ropes and
In the depressing gloom harkened to
Jeffries' instructions Sullivan looked
strong and well trained, and Gardner
also loomed up in the best of shape.
in the first rally Mike sent a hard
right to Gardner's stomach which half
twisted Jimmy around He came back
with one to the head, but fotind lt
hard work to get one through Mike
guard and the Twin had all the best
of the argument. The second was
about the same. Mike getting out of
the way of some well meant wallops,
and returning with straight lefts to
the head, despite a hard left which
caught him high on the nut.
Gardner Opens Up
Sullivan did all the work in the third,
and in the fourth Gardner opened up
a"bit but at the end of the period
Mike was still on the Job. A left to
the law and a right to the stomach
made the Twin wince-in the fifth, and
after a short stall he began his Jab
bing tactics again and had a shade
on the round. ' , .
The sixth was the same in almost
every detail save that Sullivan escaped
"all punishment, and in the period fol
lowing he closed Gardner's left eye
an made the blood trickle from his
nose A hard one on the neck in the
eighth sent Mike back for a couple of
seconds, but he came on again with
the relentless, prodding left, and again
Gardner was bleeding at the close of
Gardner opened up a little in the
ninth but it got him nothing but some
Jabs to the sore beak. The tenth was
a.l Sullivan s, and he showed Jimmy
up as the rankest kind of a champion
ship aspirant. The crowd began to
Sot for' Mike about this time, and
he rewarded them by stinging Gard
ner repeatedly. Gardner exposed hs
law an deliberately let Sullivan wal
lop him three soft ones, but when
Mike set for a good punch he covered
up and backed away. •_'-;.,,_
The name of Sullivan waved on high
from here to the eighteenth, which

Gardner went a little faster at the

Black Boy Wanted to Quit Every Time
He Hit the Mat, but Walsh's
•vfi'i-j Fancy Counting Saved *
Him I'l-J'i;
The fifteen-round preliminary be
tween Lauder and Bell went the limit
In every sense of the word, and after
a great display, of yellow on Bell's
part the decision was handed to the
white boy. Lauder had the harps
playing slow music around Bell's head
from the first of the opening round un
til the finish, but was not there with
the wallop to put his man down for
the count, although Bell was on the
mat for the, greater part of each
round, partially from telling blows re
ceived, but generally with the hopes
of avoiding light punishment. ■
In the first round Bell went down
four or five times, but only one blow
was dealt out that carried the real
stuff behind it to do the work. The
other falls were mostly due to the Raw
canvas. The rounds from them up to
and Including the seventh were tame.
The eighth saw Bell go to the floor
three times with an expression on his
face as though he were looking for a
guiding star to steer him out of his
trouble. He was down repeatedly in
the next four rounds and was only
saved from being counted out in one of
these by Tommy Walsh stopping be
tween seconds to warn Lauder's sec
onds .and those along the ringside for
handing out words of cheer to the
alligator bait, dusky, dinge or what
ever other pet name that happened to
come to them. .... \ ...7'- .
The call for the last round must have
sounded like the call for chicken to
Bell's ears, and when the three min
utes were over he lost no time In
heading for his dressing room. The
yellow showed up In him so much that
his black skin seemed to change to a
new color that would make any orien
tal envious.

Seals Are Outplayed In Every Depart
ment and Never Have Chance
-„ to Take Game at
Los Anegelea 4, San Francisco 2
Oscar Jones' goat was found wan
dering around the Chutes yesterday
afternoon, and every . member of - the
Angel team took a rap at the animal
before they handed him back to his
owner. Dolly Gray, opposed to Horse
car, left his nanny at home, and after
he was once under way the Seals never
had a chance.
Some way or other these Frisco
players came here greatly overrated.
While they are fast enough all the
time, there Is nothing wonderful about
the stick,work of the club In general,
and without batters it is pretty hard
to figure where they will have the pen
nant nailed to the mast before the sea
son is half over, as was predicted.
Some way or other Jones Is a mighty
fine slabster in any other burg on the
circuit, but when he hits these dig
gin's ' every tar on shipboard slams a
poke at him. Frisco made a tally In
the opening round, and then the An
gels got after' Oscar and scored three
runs in the second off five hits. , The
Seals climbed up a peg In the seventh
act after the locals had tallied a man
In the sixth, but were kept runless
from there on. j .7 -'.
Piper was the first man to face Gray
after O'Connell had blown the whistle,
and a grand young single to left was
the result of his effort. Curtis sacri
ficed him to second, and Piper stood
there,, while Williams flew out to
Oakes. Melcholr whanged tho leather
into right for a single, and Kitty
Brashear fumbled, the ball, giving
Piper plenty of chance to register. •
Make Three Doubles
With Smith out, Wheeler rapped out
a double to the center field fence In
the second round, and Delmas repeat
ed the performance, scoring Wheeler.
Easterly singled to center, putting Del
mas on third, and a -moment later the
two men worked a double steal, scor
ing Delmas. Gray popped out to
Mohler, but Bernard accounted for an
other double when he rapped the pill
on the snout for a pair of bags, scor
ing Easterly. Oakes was there with a
single, but Dillon refused and was out,
McArdle to Williams. .-
With three runs under their belts
the Angels went right ahead and at
tended to their business, keeping the
Seals out of the running altogether
until the seventh period. Williams,
the first man up, flew to Oakes, but
Melcholr was lucky in his effort and
got one by third base which went as
a single. Zeider batted one straight at
Gray, which was whipped over to Ber
nard in time to retire Melcholr, and
Mohler's neat triple to right gave the
man on first plenty of excuse for
romping the rest of the way : around
the stations.
Previous to the doings by the Seals
Los Angeles made a run in the sixth
spasm. Easterly followed Delmas' out
with a single to center and second on
Gray's two-sacker to the right field
I fence. Dolly died on the keystone
sack, for Bernard and Oakes were both
killed off.
In the eighth Inning Wheeler brought
down the house with a swell one
handed catch of Jones' sharp fly to
left field. It was the best thing of the
day, and so dazed the Seals that they
forgot to make a hit in their other
chances at bat. The score:

of the big swimming tryout. Several
surprises were registered, the greatest,
being In the 220-yard dash, when W.
Kyle lost to Holborow. Much was ex
pected of Kyle, but he did not live up
to the advance dope. However, lt was
evident that he Is not the same swim
mer of two seasons ago, when he stood
head and shoulders above the rest. At
the finish of the 220 he showed signs
of fatigue, which were never present at
the finish of his former races.
Frank Hollborow was again the par
ticular star of the day, winning all
three of the evening's races.

race on the program, was ■ contested
by Gordon Crary, Frank • Holborow,
Howard Taylor and Earl Kyle. All got
a flying start, but Holborow > took a
sudden spurt and kept the lead to tho
end. Kyle, who took second place,
swam a good race and • lost by . only
four feet. Taylor was third. Time,
29 2-5 seconds. '
The entries for the second race were
Gordon Crary, ' Frank • Holborrow.
Howard Taylor and Wilbur Kyle. Hol
borow came In an easy first, with Kyle
second and Crary third. Time, 1:9 1-5.
The 20-yard dash was won by Hol
borow, with W. Kyle second and Harry
Crumm third. Time, 3 minutes 17 sec
onds. E. C. Bornwell also entered but
