BIS LEAGUE PITCHER

B FIGHT WILL TAKE PL
FRANGISGO. IT II
AGE IN SAN
San Fra-nclsco, Gal, Jan. 11. At last
the cat Is .-out. The "big Jeffries-Jbhn-son
mill Is to be fought in San Fran
cisco, or near enough, for all of the
'Frisco sports to reach the ringside on
a street car. All the stalling' about'
Salt Lake, Ely and. otherDowns getting-
the big fight is a bluff.
San Francisco is the logical place for
holding the big scrap and the applica
tion of Jack Gleason for a permit to
bold a 45 round fight in or near San
Francisco is the first step fin the ar
rangements for the championship bat
tle. The laws of San Mateo county
do not permit fights, to go past 20 rounds
but the petition of Gleason for an ex
tension of this limit to 45 rounds has
beeno'eferred to the police committee.
Gleason stated ilonday that the fight,
-would not be held in Utah, Nevada or
elsewhere, .but -would frbe held In San
Francisco or its suburbs. Jack says
that as soon as his application -for an
'extension of ihe permit is acted upon
lans would be drawn for the arena,
which -will shelter the two big fellows
'in their fight. "The fight will be held
In San Francisco," Gleason .said. "1 do

it is, the fight will come off here."
HOPPE GETS MATCH.
Ptttsburg, Pa,. Jan. 11. Willie HoppeT
the boy bilhardist. and Ora Morning- j
star liave been matched for a billiard
contest at 18.2 balk line billiards here
'on February 2, 3 and 4. 'Each player
has posted a forfeit of $250 for the
match, and it is understood that the
winner of this contest will play Calvin

Harry Mdntyre Can Bowl
as Well as He Can Pitch,
"Which Is Some.
Harry Mclntj're, Brooklyn's best
pitcher last season, is In El Paso. Hear
ing of the fine climate here. Harry de
cided to spend several weeks in the
Southwest away from the Brooklyn
brand of fog and he arrived Monday
for a month's visit in El Paso and other
parts of the cactus country. Harry as
a pitcher is some few. As a. bowJer h
is as much plus some more. Last' night
he went up to the Y. M. C. A., "where
the memory of one Christy Mathewson
and his checker playing was still fresh,
and he "rolled 'em, down the other
alley, pally," until the pin hoys had
paralysis in their arms setting up pins.
While here Mdntyre has found an
affinity. It is jockey Mclntj're, who is
riding at the Juarez track. Harry
stands about six feet in uniform, whilo
jockey Mdntyre rides at about 77
pounds. Both wear the latest in the
glad clothes line and they have become
real chummy since they met each other
in the lobby of the Sheldon last night.
Bowling Is Mr. Mclntyre's hobby.

hobbies aside from his ball playing. Ho

forget the slow ones over the left cor

and follows the fighters wdth the eye of

win from the dinge without any trouble,
using the old and very logical argu
ment that Jeffries is the one man to

The Brooklyn pitcher is a big, healthy
out of door chap with a clear eye and a
quiet manner after the styTe of the
modern ball player. Being sewed up in
a contract to Brooklyn, he does not
know yet -what his immediate future
will be. "I may be traded, retained or

depends upon the outcome of the meet

National league teams I play with .next
season." Judging from his record of
last year, the man from Babybuggyville
is due to make good and good where

EL PASO MAI M DELEGATES TO

Bowling congress with two associa
tions, the local bowlers are discussing
the advisability of sending a represent

A farewell bowling tournament is be

is to be a free for all and will consist
of individual contests and two and five
men team contests. An entry fee of v

When Dr. Roller's in condition it's hard to find a learned physician,

a Russian giant under, and slew a Cherokee. He's second in the great

Frank Gotch, the horny-handed farmer, is still his bugaboo; he spoils the
Bulgars and -the Russians, and puts the lid upon the Prussians, and makes
the Poles skiddoo; and when he seems without a rival an illustration of sur
vival of him who is most fit from Iowa there comes a granger, with per
fume of the mow and manger, who gently whispers "Nit!" If Gotch is
ever sick and dying, and other doctors,, after trying to save, have made
