I JOE MILLER ONCE MORE PROVES
I HE HAS THE PUNCH WITH WHICH
TO KNOCKOUT HIS OPPONENT
I The boxing Tans sow one of the besl
boxing shows last night that has ever
born pulled off in Ogden. there brine
two bouts by very fine talent Joe Mil
ler was the winner over Frankle Gage
when the latter took the count in ihe
ninth round after showing Bome of the
wonderful class that he brought here
from New Orleans. Although Cage lost
by the very derisive k. o. route, he
won a host of admirers among those
who witnessed hi3 work last night.
And there are many who saw that
bout, whirh was lightning ast, who
feel that another session between the
two boys would be justice to Gage
and that it might not end In favor of
Gage had not been here lone enough
to become acclimated and early in the
bout he began to show signs of heavy
breathing about the middle of each
round. During the minute rest he re
cuperated, however, and began each
round apparently as fresh as a daisy.
Miller has a bearing and manner of
movement in the ring that very much
resembles the old -time work of Jim
Corbett. though if the difference in
weight is considered. Miller hits like fl
pile driver beside a tack hammer so
far as Corbett la concerned. It was
sometimes paid of Corbett that he
couldn't break an egg with an iron
ball, but he could box with astonish
ing cleverness. Joe Miller can box with
astonishing cleverness and he can
break two eggs with an iron ball. Mil
ler has a punch in either hand that
carries a sleep potion. When it lands
squarely on a vital spot "he boxing
contest is always over. As for Gage
it is only fair to say that he has a
good deal of the .same stuff, though his
style of milling is different from Mil
ler's. Miller has one very bad habit that
ioes not please some of the fans. The
habit is bad for his opponent and those
who havo any money bet against him
and the fans who are not pleased are
those who are "rooting'' lor Miller's
opponent. This habit is that of sud
denly sinking a submarine left into the
midriff of an opponent without warn-
Iing. These ruthless t.irtirs spell disas
ter for the ship goes down with all on
board. Gage got one of them Jusi under
,nhe heart last night and Pat Gilbert
cot one when he met Miller.
It was during the ninth round, and
after one of the finest boxing exhibi
tions the local fans have ever seen,
that Miller suddenly drove in to the
midsection of Gage a short distance
blow that sent the southerner down
for the count. Gage gamely rose to his
feet at the count of nine, just as Ref
eree Thornton was about to declare
him out, and tried to face Miller again.
Another tap and Gage was seeing only
pretty things in the sky for BOme sec
onds while his assistants helped him to
Lee Morrissey. the pride of the Og
den fans for the lightweight division,
outboxed and outfoaght lleinie Shu
man during their eight round go and
was given the decision at the finish
by Referee Hardy Downing of Salt
"Lake. While Leo did not perform lat
night according to his usual style, he
was too much for Heinie. Lee injured
his left hand early in the game and
had to depend on a right for the rest
of the bout, but be was too elusive
for the struggling Heinie. Roth boys
got a little peeved at the finish of their
bout and continued scrapping in ear
nest after the last bell. The referee
separated them, however, and Lee
grinned as though he was as good nat
urod as ever.
One of the features of the nrnzrram
I was two flyweights from Tremonton
who gave four one-minute rounds of
exhibition work. They were little fel
lows, a couple of kids, who rhum to
gether at home and box because they
like it. They were Rud Robbins and
Cyclone Meldrum. The fans like their
work so well that the little fellows
were caught in a shower of coins at
the end of the go. They were busy
for several minutes picking nickles
and dimes from the mat of the ring.
Gage Asks for More.
Gage asked Miller for another
chance and Joe said he would give him
one if the promoter, Billy Glasmann.
believed the fans would care to see
them again. Gage said. "All 1 want is
two weeks more to get accustomed to
this altitude. Then let me at him. I
will show the fans h r. BOme of the
finest stuff they hae ev. i seen in the
ring. And I will humble Miller to the
floor. I can master him, and I know
There are many of the fans who be
lieve it was a lucky punch that ended
the match last night and that Gage
would have a good chance to bring
home the bacon. But if they meet
again Miller will carry heavy odds.
Injured at Fight.
A tier of bleachers on the south side
of the armory hall on which about
DmO f.-ins were silting at the boxing
contest, fell to the floor with a era b
just at the end of the Morrlssey - Shu -man
semi-windup bout last night.
Morrissey was given the decision at
tbe end of eight rounds and the fans
on the south bleachers were cheering
loudly when the crash came. Most of
them were fitting on their seats when
the section began to fall and were
carried to the floor still sitting. Oniy
for the fact ih.-n the seats went down
so that the planks were lying like a
"riffled' pack of cards, here would
have been some serious cases of in
jur. , but only a few were injured at
all and none seriously.
None of the fans was so injured
that he could not remain for the finish
of the program.
Fred Brophy and Lewis Hall were
the two most seriously injured, both

BEES DOWNED BY
Jack Quinn Hands Salt Lake a
Beating 8 to 3 McCabe
Gets Off Wrong.
SALT LAKE. May 2 Jack Quinn,
Vernon's classy right handcr, had tho j
Bees beaten before the second game i
yesterday was well under way. It wai
one of those days when it wasn't in,
the cards for Salt Lake to win and
about all Jack had to do was to throw
his glove OU there. Anyway. Yernon
won the game, S to 3, and also took
back 'he league leadership which the'
Bees held overnight as a result of
their opening da victory
It was somewhat of a listless game ,1
Salt Lake did not seem to have a look- I
in at any stage and especially not
after Tim MeC.ibe had found the go
ing so hard at the outset that the vis
itora nailed up five runs to the good.
McCabe again failed to deliver the'
kind of pitching which we have seen j
him dish up and he was wild on top,
of that. He walked four men in the'
first two frames and three- of the1
passes were converted into runs by the
opposition. Ken Penner succeeded him
in the sixth, but Ken. too, got away
to a bad start which dented him for'
three runs before he was under way
Ken looked like a million dollars, j
however, after he had gained hjs bear
ings and the Tigers could do little or j
nothing with his delivery in the last,
Too Many Walks.
McCabe got off wrong at the start !
by walking Daley, for Pete stole sec
ond and came in a moment later on
'hadbourne's double The latter
scored when Jack Farmer, in his
mightiest efforts to help Tim out of
the hole, dropped Moore's fly.
Tim also started the second wrong
bj walking the first man, Hosp in this
case esterzill's single put Hosp on
third, and then Tim also passed Quinn
Konnick made a bad peg to third in
an effort to catch Hosp off, and the
latter waltzed over. Another walk to
Daley filled the bag- Mitchell's sin
gle accounted for WesterslU, and
Chadbourne's sacrifice put Quinn
Yernon's other runs came in the
sixth before Penner could get the lay
i of the land We lerzill singled on the
first ball pitched, and Quinn sacri
ficed. Daley drew his third walk of
I the day (he hid four by the way), and
then Mitchell singled, to score West
erzill. Chadbourne doubled a Becond
time and rang up both men ahead of
Salt Lake Scores.
The Bees did not get a sign of a
hit off Quinn until 6rr shot one to
right center in the fourth.
Salt Lake counted once in the fifth
on a clean single by Sands, Konnick's
I safe blow and Farmer's fielder's
choice. Another came in the sixth on
clean bingles by Ryan and Chappell
and Sheely'e sacrifice fly. The run in
ihe ninth was partialh a gift. Sheelj
'singled and was permitted to steal
second and third, ami he scored on
Konnick's out at first
