Mickey Sheehan of Salt Lake City

[Special to The Herald.]
SAN PEDRO, Sept. 18.—Frank Ficato
added another knockout to his record
here tonight when he stopped Jake Ar
nold of Whittler In the ninth round.
They put up a great scrap for eight
rounds, with Arnold having at least an
even break until this session. His su
perior cleverness enabled him to jab
Picato effectively and his speedy foot
work helped him out in avoiding the
terrific leads of Ficato. But in the
eighth round Plcato got a right swing
over and wobbled Arnold, who was be
coming tired from his speedy pace
making. In the ninth round Picato put
him down twice before the knockout.
The winning punch was a right swing
Jiush to the chin and Referee Tommy
Walsh had counted six before Arnold's
seconds realized that their man was
out. Then they tossed In the sponge
and saved the final count. Arnold was
much praised for his game fight after
getting the terrific wallop In the
The preliminaries furnished much
amusement for the large crowd of fans
that attended. Kid Martin of Long
Beach knocked out Kid Adams of Los
Angeles in the second round and Char
ley Johnson of East San Pedro won
from Mickey Sheehan of Salt Lake City
In the second round of their scrap,
Referee Charlie Anslinger awarding
the decision on a foul. This latter bout
really resulted In two fights. Sheehan
fought foully and Anslinger disquali
fied him in the beginning of the second
round, but a row between the seconds
resulted in Anslinger ordering them to
go ahead and fight it out. Sheehan
again fouled Johnson and the police
interfered, refusing to allow such a foul
fighter to go on further.

Vice President Frank Garbutt of the
Los Angeles Athletic club lias offered
the Los Angeles police department $100
reward for the arrest and conviction of
the person or persons who removed the
Bilk banners and club standards from
the Auditorium theater. With the per
mission of Ernest Crawford, manager
of the Auditorium theater, the boys
were allowed to decorate the box with
the banners and flags.
The decorations were intact when the
audience left the house, and when the
lights were put out aftur the perform
nnce Tuesday night, and had disap
peared Wednesday mornii"* when one
of the club attaches had been sent for
Careful inquiry among the employes
of the theater by Manager Crawford
and the club representatives failed to
cast any light on the mystery.
Vice President Garbutt was Indig
nant when he heard of the loss, and
ordered that the case be put Into the
hands of the police immediately. This
was done, after allowing the manage
ment another day to search for the
emblems and f.ags. The case now Is Jn
the hands of Detectives Boyd and
Manager Crawford asserted yester
day that he was under the impression
that the banners had been removed by
the members of the club as souvenirs.
This is not true, however, as two of the
members were in the theater until the
lights were put out, and assert that the
decorations bordering the box, and
many that they could see in the box,
Edward Dietrich and Art Howard
left Thursday morning for an extended
hunting trip in the mountains sur
rounding Mt. Wilson. Both boys car
ried a large assortment of camp outfit

mainder of the journey. This is the
beginning of a long period of training
by both boys, who already have signi
fied their intention of entering the next
It is interesting to note that the
largest gymnasium class on record this
summer turned out Thursday noon.
Regardless of the many new faces that
■were in the class, everything went off
like clockwork. Physical Instructor Al
Troloar has a system of exercises for
the new member that does not lame
him on the first day and tends to bring
him back regularly.
The bont house at Naples for the use
of the members of tlio rowing cr^w is

Al Treloar Is hoping that everything
will be ready today for the preliminary
rowing. About ten aspirants for the
senior crow were on the floor yester
day and many of them worked out on
the rowing machines. Captain Isaaci

days to recuperate from his bard

So many remarks have been passed
among the members recently regard
ing the way Jack Watlington has had
his hair cut that It becomes necessary
to make public mention of the fact.
Yes, it is true that Jack is aspiring to
boxing honors. In fact, he is deeply con
sidering challenging Stanley Ketchel.
He v/as asked regarding the rumor
yesterday. "Well, why not?" he said.
"Don't you think I look enough like
Billy Papke to scare this Ketehel boy?"
As many of the members know. Cliff
Jleuman, amateur champion middle
weight boxer of the Pacific coast,
Htralned one of the tendons In his arm
while boxing with Jorgstoff at the re

mishap is the cause of keeplnnr CHIT
out of the rowing squad. Nevertheless,
he Is Improving rapidly and hopes to
be back at the game within a few days.
Messrs. Witt and Guernsey are re
quested to call at the office at their
earliest convenience and receive In
structions from Assistant Secretary
Henderson, which will be to the effect
that any decanters found outside of

Is Attacked Again with
Slumps in American
The pennant hopes of the New York
club took a tint undeniably roseate as
the result of its work on the diamond
yesterday. There was nothing inde
cisive about the results of its clash
with Pittsburg at the Polo grounds,
and as a consequence of New York's
double victory and Pittsburgh corre
sponding two-time defeat, a still fur
ther gap has been opened between the
leaders and their nearest rivals. Chi
cago went to second place despite the
loss of a close game to* Philadelphia.
The leaders, however, still have two
more games with Pittsburg and then a
series with Chicago, and will be forced
to keep continually on the keenest edge
to hold their advantage. The standing

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATTTftDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 10, 1908.
Gossip of The Rialto
KACINO In Kentucky will bo resumed this afternoon
for the fall season, the Lexington meeting starting
off. Meetings at Louisville and Latonia will follow
in the order named. All these meetings will be conducted
without bookmaking, the ptiri-mutuel system having been
adopted at the suggestion of the state racing commission,
which refused to give dates to any track that would not
agree to bar the bookies. The mutuel system is unpop
ular with some of the oi'tlcials al Latonia and they made
a statement last (spring that ihe track had quit the spring
season at a loss because of tho change, but the fuot thai
the management has accepttd dates for a lall meeting
under the coiiUitionu imposed by the stato racing commis
sion seems to indicate that the story of losses lv the
spring hardly can be accepted as true.
Followers of the ponies in the touth find some con
solation in the announcement of the new officials selected
Thursday as Dr. J. S. Gardner, .Dick Dwyer and Jf. P.
Pomeroy will be buck, as will Ed o'Alalley in the oalltr'a
box. All these officials have made theniselven popular
with racegoers and their return next winter will bu most
satisfactory. Sorry the same cannot be said regarding
the other Judges and a few of the other officials. C. V.
Henderson will be most satisfactory to horsemen, but,
of course, is not so well known 10 the general public bo
cause his relations with the public have been so slight.
Jake Holtman will officiate at the barrier at the Lex
ington Louisville and Latonia meetings before coming to
the coast It is understood that Dick Dwyer will start
the season at Emeryville and Holtman will send the nWils
away at Santa Anita in ihe first weeks Of the meeting.
This will send Dwyer south tkbout New Year's day, as
they alternate every five weeks.
Herman B*randt, chief trainer for the Barney Schreiber
string and owner of Tom McGrath and a few other htgh
class horses of his own string, will be among the new ones
to race at Santa Anita next winter. Brandt will bring
Jack Atkin, the best horse in the Schreiber string. Ho
also will have Tom McGrath and Chapultepec for .his own
account, having purchased Chapultepec from Burlew &
O'Neil. The latter racing firm will ship to France this
winter and had intended making a high class jumper of
Chapultepec, but Brandt thought too well of the good
3-year-old to allow him to get away.
Eastern turf critics are predicting that coast racing
next winter will be as hitjh class and on as elevated a
plane as is usual to the metropolitan courses and that
they are Justified In this opinion is proved in the fact that
such good horses ns King James, Montgomery, Uncle,
Meellck, Rapid Water, Tony Faust, Gretna Green, Cha
rultepec Jack Atkin, Rosegal, Colonel Bob, Big Chief and
Firestone will be raced here. All of these horses, with
two or three exceptions, were stars in the east last year
nnd this season. Just what these horses will be able to
do to the world records when running over the lightning
fast course at Santa Anita can be predicted only.
Battling Nelson has ended all discussion regarding: a
match with Packy McFarland over a short route. He
says that there Is nothing doing, and the Dane never
"kids" when talking business. In a telegram to the writer
Wednesday nlgbt Bat said that he had turned down an
offer of $10,000 for a six-round, no-declsion bout with
Packy before a Philadelphia club for three gnod reasons.
His chief objection is the distant He is no six-round
fighter, being unable to get up a sweat in feuch a short
distance. Then he has so many fat theatrical engage
ments that he could not think of losing for a $10,000 scrap,
while the date, in October, Is too early for him, as he
wants to rest awhile before going back into training.
Fact is. Bat Is in no hurry to fight again. He has the
right to take things easy now and pluck some of the sweet
grapes off the financial bush and he will avail himself
of the privilege. It need not be surprising if he never
fights again, as he has Indicated recently H his Inter
views here and in the north.
Fight fans can make no complaint regarding attrac
tions this week. Beginning last Tuesday night they had
the opportunity of witnessing four scraps at McCarey's
pavilion. The next night San Berdoo entertained with
three. Last night San Pedro kicked in with three more
and tonight the Venice club. Just organized, will put on
three more. As all these clubs are making money and
attracting large crowds to all their shows and other clubs
are springing up regularly. It would seem that the sport

Nat Miles and Irving Wright Are No
Match fop Pacific States Cham
pions, Despite MeLaughlin
[By Associated Press]
DEL MONTE, Cal., Sept. 18.—Cali
fornia won another victory over the
east on the tennis courts here today.
L C. Wright and Nat Niles of Boston,
winners in the flnul matches in men's
doubles, challenged MeLaughlin and
George Janes, the California champions,
and went down to defeat.
But it was not by any means en
tirely a satisfactory victory. Me-
Laughlin, on account of a strained
back, could not show his best form
and Wright's play showed the crippling
effects of his last attack of rheumatism.
He seemed unable to put any power
cither in his service or returns.
The easterners opened the ilrst set by
taking three straight games before the
Californians scored more than four
points. McLaughlln then took the game
on his service, and, with his partner,
worked up to , .c all, with only one
deuce game in ten. Here Weight and
isliies began to play a cautious wait-
Ing game, taking the set 7 to 6.
In the second set, Wrlght'a stroke
lost all force, b'-t both he and Miles
played all balls to Janes, who proved
equal to the occasion, California tak
ing the set 6 to 4. At the end of this
set, MeLaughlin and Janes were only
one point ahead of their rivals.
The third set was one-sided, the east
ern team not making one game. The
fourth set also fell to McLaughlln and
Janes. The full score of the match was
7 to 5, 4 to 6, 0 to 6 and 2 to ti. The
easterners only took fifteen games to
In the doubles Miss May t'utton and
Miss Ryan challenged last year's
champions, Miss Florence button and
Mrs B. O. Bruce. Neither Miss Flor
ence Button nor Mrs. Bruce could of
fer any effective opposition to the vig
orous smashing and driving and mathe
matical precision of Miss May Button
and K. Ryan's strong passing strokes.
The latter team won the match and
champions ip with a score of 6 to 2 and
C to 1.
POMPANO RUNNING FREELY
AND ANGLERS HAVE SPORT
PORT L.OS ANGELES, Sept. 18.—
Good fishing was the rule here today,
and white no record catches were made
on unusually large number of anglers
took part in the sport.
Pompano predominated in number,
large schools coming and going all
day. Mackerel, trout, bass, jacksmelt
and halibut were also running all day.
A. Staff of Experts \
Dugan, Guy Burns, Sweet, Schilling, Musgrave and others
nearly as prominent will be on the job early in the season.
An illustration of the efteot of defeat in the ring la
given in the dispatches from the east to the effect tnai
Joe Gaus had been offered *S!0Ou to box six rounds witn
Leach Cross, Tommy Murphy or Packy McFarland. a
few weeks ago Gans could have Mined almost any price
for a match with either of these boys, but since losing »'»
tiUe he is not the attraction that promoters can affora
to secure at princely sums and as a down-and-o\u scrap
per he is not worth much M a drawing card. Ketcnei
also furnishes another example. A few weeks ago ne
could have demanded and received $15,000 for his end of
a match—win, lose or draw, and always good for a bonus
of from 10 to 20 per cent. Now, he must plead for
matches and take what Is offered. Nothing fickle in all
Ad Wolgast, who is matched with Danny Webster for
a twenty-five-round bout before the Jeffries Athletic club
the night of September 29, arrived last nlghl and went at
once to Jack Doyle's club, where he probably will train
for this scrap. Wolgast was accompanied by his man
ner Frank Mulkern, nnd Maurice Sayers, the Milwaukee
lightweight, who wants to box any of the lightweights in
this neighborhood. The party was well worn by the long
journey and made no dilay in getting out to their training
camp. The articles of agreement between these boys
have not been signed yet, but all conditions and terms
have been discussed by wire and the formality of signing
up and posting forfeits will occur this morning. As thero
is nothing over which to start a quibble there will be no
difficulty whatever in getting all signatures affixed to the
articles. Both boys realizo the importance <: this battle
and will get into training at once. Webster has been at
the Arrowhead hot springs for several days, taking mud
baths, and is in fine condition for starting training. Wol
gast must win to amount to much on the coast, despite
his great eastern record, while Webster must win to prove
his championship caliber. It will be a battle.
Freddie Welsh has agreed to fight the winner of the
Lauder-Trendall scrap that is to be McCarey's main event
offering next Friday night. This makes the Lauder-
Trendall match all the more Important, not only to the
fans, but to both boys. Lauder never has been whipped
and his cleverness and punch make him a contender in
the 130-133-pound class. Trendall has complained that
he could not get good matches here, so he will have only
himself to blame now If he falls to get on with Welsh.
Trendall came west after Packy McFnrland': scalp. He
can get in that class by whipping LauOer next Friday
night. It is up to both of them now.
Young Otto has made a big hit since returning to New
York and is setting newspaper space without limU. His
quick knockout of Joe Bedel!, one of the best boys down
east, which occurred In the second round, made Y. O. a
prime favorite with the fans and is being touted for
matches with all the topnotchers. It Is real nice of the
eastern sports to recognize this great little lightweight,
but Packy McFarland knew him first and has shown good
judgment in changing the subject every time ho Is offered
a match with the knockout kid. Young Otto writes as
"Just a few lines to let you k iow I brought back my
wallop I used It Thursday evening and added another
K. O. to my record. Bedell and I boxed before a packed
house and everybody seemed anxious to see me perform,
and since them all the lightweights around here are dodg
ing me, the same as they did out there, so I am In a
pretty bad fix as regards future matches, unless I take
on welterweights. Give my regards to the Loys and tell
them I may return to Los Anjeles somo day."
It Is a pity that such a good and classy scrapper should
be allowed to get away from Los Angeles. No better
match than Young Otto and Packy McFarland could be
arranged and It will be good news. Indeed, If one of the
local fight clubs announces the knockout kid as principal
lna match of some class on the other end real soon. ;

GARDEN CITY, Sept 18.—Play in
the United States Golf association's

ch&Tnplonshlp progressed today to the
final stage. With the close of the day's
work on the links here only two of the
original 133 starters survive. These are
D. Travers of Montclalr, N. J., and
Max Behr of the Morrla County club In
the same state. The Jerseyltes, there
fore, will meet In a 36-hole final match
The mutch between Travers and
Travis was an eye-opener for today's
big gallery from start to finish, and at
the end of the first half of the match
Travis had the champion one down on
the eighteenth! green. The afternoon
play, for the greater part, was In favor
of Travis, but when the young cham
pion reached the thirty-second hole
and found himself two down he braced
up and to the end of the match he
played all the golf of which he Is cap
He simply mowed down the veteran's
lead, taking the last four holes In
grand golf and-.nnlshlng up with three
to six on the home green, the veteran's

STRIPED BASS' BITE HARD
AT SAN GABRIEL'S MOUTH
Some remarkably line striped bass
fishing is reported at Alamltos bay.
Good strikes were frequent yesterday,
but no big fish were landed, as the
hooks in use were small. Some of the
bass are said to measure three feet
or more in length. Some were stranded
last night in shallow water.
The San Gabriel's mouth at Ala
mltos bay was stocked with bass from
the Atlantic coast some time ago by
the government. The fish are now
coming from the river In large schools.
They take sardine bait readily, ' but
prove themselves game fighters.
These bass are the genuine "Squid
hounds" of the Atlantic coast. They
are in some places looked on as the
greatest game fish of the deep sea.
Along the rocky shores of Rhode Island
they are taken in the surf and run
up to sixty pounds.
Sportsmen are delighted to hear this
magnificent fish Is proving a good
breeder and a game fighter along the

PLAYA DEL, RE^Sept. 18.— Anglers
who visited this place today were treat
ed to some good sport among the jack

running In big shoals and large num

Some of the larger varieties followed
the little fellows In and were landed by
local fishermen. Al Green got a 2V4

Ollle Morosco took a little time away
from his duties of amusing the public
and was rewarded by catching a spot

Mr. McJohnson of Hollywood carried

which he took in the morning hours.

The dove of peace la about to alight.
The spark of athletic discord having
been fostered and fanned at U. S. C.
by Coach Harvey Holmes is about to

at the meeting which representatives
of Pomona, Occidental and "Whlttler
will hold at Occidental college this
morning the conference probably will

a triple formation, with the University
of southern California as Uie fourth
All four schools are in a receptive
mood and anxious for peace and har
mony In intercollegiate athletics. For
the last two years there has been little
athletic competition save that dual en
thusiasm which has existed between
the CongregatlonallHts and Presbyteri
ans. Except for basketball, the addi
tion of Whittier to the conference has
meant little added rivalry, us at tire
Quaker college there la such a scarcity
of athletic talent as to render the vari
ous teams unable to give substantial
competition to the other 1 two colleges.
U. B. C, since their breach with the
Saints, has been more or less an ath
letic outcast, with only .Whittier and
the local high schools and outside
teams which could be brought here to

■ There seems no doubt of an amica
ble settlement, for the university lads
an» willing now to agree to the clauses
for which the conference so long has
held out. Occidental and Pomona are
willing to agree to having the students
of the affiliated schools of the univer

work in the professional school equiva

In the college of liberal arts.
To the eligibility rule, requiring one

freshman, a point where the Metho
dists always have balked, they now are
willing '• to agree. The' rule barring
preps from all branches of college ath
