Fireman Picked by Fans to Take New Year's Day Bout
FAVOR FLYNN TO
WIN FROM CAPONI
Betting Operators Declare Fire
man Two to One Choice.
Dope Justifies Odds
Jim Flynn and Tony C;iponi, princi
pals on tho first card at Vernon Mon
day afternoon, will ease oil
work today und content themsi Ivea
with light exercise until it la time to i
trawl through the ropes. Reports
from Vernon, where the fireman Is
training, and Arcadia, Caponl's strong
hold, ' .ye it that both men are In
prime eonu.tion and will be able to go
alone at a stirring pao
The fans, remembering Flynn's many
sterling battles befon local amli' nces,
are stringing with the Pueblo citizen
to an alarming extent. While some
of the money handlers are calling it
a ton to right proposition, efforts to
get a bet down on Flynn at that price
are unavailing- Two to oik- or ten to six
is much nearer the truth when U comes
to wagering, but at any price Caponl I
coin is not abundant.
While Los Angeles ring followers
have decided in caucus that Flynn Is
tlif logical choice of the talent, his
opponent of Monday has such a recom
mend him. In his Oakwoml quarters
tin: Chicago man has put in grueling
two weeks of work, and i; condition
goes for anything should come through i
with ■■ good account of himself.
(m inn. Flynn figures as far and
away the better of the pair as the)
money marts indicate. Caponl's efforts '
against men his own poundage, such as
.Hilly I'api. ■ and Hugo Kelly were i
when in- met them, resulted in defeat,
and his record shows scarcely a no
tabie achievement while posing as a
middleweight. Flynn, on tin: other
hand, has lost to none but the cream
of the heavyweight brigade, and no i
one anywhere near his heft, with the ,
exception of Sam Langford, can point i
to where the fireman was on a decided I
loser's end. Caponl followers' only twist
ot the records to favor their man
might lie in the fact that he bested
Montana Jack Sullivan, while Flynn: 1
lost a. newspaper decision to the same
Tile bout between Young Rivers and
Billy Cappelle will be of ic4ual Interest
in many with the main event. These | |
boys have been trying to get at each
other for the past year, and Cappelle
believes lie will be able to show the
fans he has greatly improved and will
be there at the finish with the victor's i
This bout will lead off the program,
which will be started at 2 o'clock
p omptly, and if Rivers and Cappelle i '
go the limit of fifteen rounds Flynn ;
and Caponi will go on immediately, as !
thirty-live rounds are about ull that .
can be pulled off before dark. If the
first bout is shortened by a knockout a
four round contest will be inserted into j .
Seats for the Monday contest are on '
sale at Greenewald's. Reservations
have been large and the sale so far
}i;is exceeded the estimate which the , I
Club made for the initial showing.

Occidental Tennis Champion Has
Easy Time in Winning
at Mt. Washington
Win Mace's handling of his opponents In
open and college singlet proved the feature of
the second days teuton of the Mt. Washing
ton tourney, the Occidental star making two
appearances on the courts and each time win
ning In straight .sets.
It was a case of Occidental against I*. B. C.
when Mace, and Morrow met In the morning

representative easily demonstrated his superi
ority over the Methodist delegate. The sets
were run out 6-1, 6-2. In the open singlet
after lunch Mace opposed Tuttle In the open
singles and won 6-4, 6-1.
Occidental scored another triumph over 1".
P. C, when Barker, the Tigers' standard bear
er, won from oxnam, IT. S. C, 6-2, 6-0. Some
good tennis In both open and lnterseholastlc
singles was developed, although the play
dinged a bit, due to non-appearance on
scheduled time of some of the contestants.
Thla brought forth a protest from Managi r
I;. .Ml. who announced a rule governing de
faults for those who failed to he ready to
play at the proper hour. Yesterday's results
were us follows:
College singles—Barker, i">xv, defeated Ox
nam, U. S. C, 6-2, 6-0; Mace, Oxy, defeated
Morrow, T. 9. C, 6-1, 6-2.
Open singles—Beldon defeated Hall. 6-1, 6-4;
Wolfe won from 'Meyers by default.

Open singles—Beldon defeated Wolfe., S-C, 8-6;
Burllhy defeated Atterhury. 9-11, 6-4. 6-3;
Shook defeated Warren, 6-3, i"-7, 6-2; Mace de
feated Tuttle, 6-4, 6-1; Horrell defeated llar
rlman, 6-1, 6-1.
Interscholastlc singles— Herd. Throop, de

OAK KNOLL COMPANY SUES
FOR BALANCE ON NOTE
To collect $17,122.60, said to be due on a
promissory note for $33,825, the Oak Knoll
company of Pasadena yesterday filed in the
superior court a suit against the Went worth
Hotel company and its assignee, H. S. MeKee.
After reciting that the Went worth Hotel
company, which has experienced many legal
and financial troubles, was declared Insolvent
by the superior court July 12, 1907, the com
plaint asserts that July 6, 1906, the plaintiff
In the present action made a loan of $33,-825 to
the defendant, the latter giving a promissory
note for the amount, the instrument bearing
the signatures of the vice president. D. P.
Hatch, and the secretary, E. !•. Bean.
In addition. it Is asserted, the note con
tained a clause to the effect that if the Oak
Knoll company found It necessary to sue for
the money, the Went worth Hotel company
would pay a reasonable attorney's fee, as
fixed by the court.
The Oak Knoll company now asserts that
only 126,000 has been paid on the note, that
amount being the proceeds of bonds given us
security, and wants $17,122.60, averred to be
flue as Interest and part of the principal.
