That Edward Peyton Weston is a
fake and that his sun would quickly set
but for the newspapers, is the opinion
of one Henry Stewart, aged 60, "who
claims to be some walker himself. He
pulled up on his shin ponies Thursday
morning, coming through the union
station, where he attracted more at
tention by a big lot than Paul Morton,
wlio arrived on the Mexico Central from
the interior of Mexico.
Stewart, whose makeup is more like
that of a yo-ho sailor than a land
lubber, confesses that he is the booster
of the Panama-California exposition, to
be held in San Diego on and after the
first of January, 1915, on the occasion
of the completion of the Panama canal,
and he is a lot more enthusiastic over
the exposition than he is over the sub
ject of walking or baseball.
Speaking of "Weston's much exploit
ed feats or feets (either way around),
booster Stewart thinks that If the news
papers would quit marveling over what
is only ordinaryy hoofing, the old man
would have to go to work. Stewart is
an Englishman, though he calls himself
a galvanized American, and, of course,
they have something "just as good at
"There was a book agent in any town
in the old country by the name of Dan
O'Reilly who attached a pedometer to
his legs and beat Weston's record 35
j-ears ago, when Weston was in his
prime," said the Booster.
Stewart carries a blanket, a water
I bottle and a grip, and is padded with
literature boosting the Pan.-Cal. expo.
He has the signatures of prominent peo
ple with whom he has talked since he
left San Diego on the first of Febru
ary. Don't take him for a rube, for
he isn't: he is a philosopher. Hear
him: "People of all kinds have all kinds
of minds, and the man who minds his
business Is the man who succeeds: so
when we get to the stale of Nobody, it
is everybody's business to know How.
How is an Indian exclamation, a broth
er to Lo, the poor indian." And he
says a lot more like that and invites
you to meet him at San Diego at the
expo. He is on the way around the
world, with no form of motor power
save his feet and the steam of enthusiasm.

I've seen Jeffries and I believe he will

Honus "Wagner "Why shouldn't Jeff
come back? Pittsburg nearly won the
world's series with Boston in 1903. Then
they said we were dead ones. We came
back all right, and I'm saying Jeff will
also come back."
George Gibson "If Jeff is 50 percent
as good as he was, he'll win in a can
Babe Adams "Believe Jeffries will
finish the job inside of 10 rounds.
When he gets in the ring, hell forget

as quickly as he can."
Tommy Leach "Ball players stay up

Keep their speed even after they are
out of the game for a season or so.
My opinion is that Jeff will be pretty

of his loan and a dissolution of part

of the mortgage was the impending
The trainer was well avare that the
summary sale at auction of thtf'Tforses
and training quarters which Crawford
would insist upon regardless of loss to
himself was not likely to net more
than one-third of their value and that
he would be left penniless to all in
tents and purposes. His association
with Crawford, therefore, instead of
bringing the substantial advantage he
had anticipated and which its con
tinuance would have insured, for the
Dusmess was beginning to prosper,
had left him in a worse position than
he was in before. He could not even
