Chicago, III., 3Iay 3. Jack JoknKon wired a friend here last night telling
Mm not to bet any money on the comias fight until advised farther.
The telegram also stated that the death of Tommy McCarthy had given tho

UP FOR THE FIGHT
The Big Fellow Is Glad His
Brother Will Join Him
Ben Lomond, Cal., May 3. Jeffries
and ginger mixed so well yesterday
that the big fellow crammed a full j
day's work In the morning hours. Be
sides his regular apparatus routine, he
chased Bob Armstrong around the ring.
Afternoon Jeff took to the wilds, while
Billy Papke and Joe Choynski mixed it.
Jeff says that If he felt better he
wouldn't know what to do.
He is pleased to hear that his brother j
Jack will join him later in the week.
"I'm going to lick Johnson sure at
rate I'm going. I'll enter the ring at
215 pounds. Talk about being fast.
I'll carry Johnson along at a clip that
will make hlfl head swim."
So spoke Jim Jeffries last night, vol
untarily and in the exuberance of hia
"Jeffs getting garrulous," was the
comment of the camp. There was cause
fr the remark, for as a rule Jeffries
Is as taciturn as a pedagog with the
imimps. But with his back healed and
only a little stiffness remaining, the
big fellow is showing much zest now
for hard training and the month of
3Iay will see severe and unremitting
work at Ben Lomond.
X.OCALLY KIVOWX PITCHERS PLAY
IX BIG LEAGUES MOXDAY
Two "known in El Paso" pitchers
worked In the big leagues Monday. At
Pittsburg, Harry Mclntyre, the boy
vith the diamond cluster, who started
his season right by working out his
pitching arm at Y. M. C A. bowling this
spring, pitched before his majesty. Bill
TafL Handsome Harry did not gat to
going good and Pfeffer relieved him on
the order of manager Chance, of the
Chicago Cub club when It was seen
the former baby carriage pusher was
not hitting his stride,'
At Brooklyn, Christy Mathewson and
big chief Myers formed the New York
battery and got away with it, winning
the game and allowing Brooklyn but
one hit. This single hit was a scratch
one and Christy had the credit of pitch
ing a near no hit game.
JtV TYLIE. the last
of the last
A season's club,
tiifi vounester who has been
making such a good showing as pitcher
this season, are to be released, ac
cording to aamnager F. Harbuck. This
is nothing against either Wylie or
Harbin. The El Paso clut, as It .stands
at present, is too fast for these two
men. and they have had to retire be
fore the inevitable.
With Gray. Eumsey and Booles, the
Tuning staff of the El Paso club is
L mser than any in the league, and
the serviced of Wylie and Harbm are
not now needed.
"Wylie has no been in condition this
reason, altnougn ne giie "'"-"-' --,
getting away fine when he startea to
work in the spring practice.
As a pitcher he has a collection of
curves and enough speed to make him
invincible providing he can get in
shape to deliver his article of ball. But
he cannot bat and cannot run bases.
Neither Is he a utility man, and, as
the pitching staff has been filled up
with men thought to be faster, he has
been dropped from the payroll.
Harbin is a youngster and has all
kinds of promise. He needs experi
ence, and lots of work. He is fat and
should reduce his weight to the point
where every ounce is playing muscle

He comes with all kinds of recommen

Is no outlaw. He does not like his
herlh with Shreveport and came to El
Paso. As the Cactus league is recog
nized by the other leagues there is no
danger on Booles's pa-t of being dis
ciplined for playing with El Paso, and
he expects to spend the remainder of
the season here. Booles was sold to
Cleveland last year and sent to the
aps farm, which is Toledo, but the
cold weather hindered his work, and he

referee question will be settled this

another conference will be held tomor

UP BEST FIGHT
No Decision Allowed, How
ever, in His Match With
Lexington, Ky., May 3. Although no
decision was allowed. Jack O'Brien
without question outpointed Mike
Schreek, of Cincinnati, in a grueling
10 round go here last night. Mike was
game throughout, but he lacked both
stamina and skill to stand the punches
of Philadelphia Jack. Schreek weighed
in at 195 and O'Brien at 167.
In the first few rounds the Cincin
nati fighter led, but by the sixth go
he was getting the worst of body
punches, also carrying a bad eye. In
the eighth Mike became groggy but
came up in the ninth with gamencss
which pleased the crowd. O'Brien kept
hammering at his man's nose, with
Schreek fighting wild to the end.

is a left hander, and is said to have
all that a big league pitcher needs.

regiment were brought together in the
battalion, which is now stationed at
Fort Bliss, and on the way over the
club played a game with the Honolulu 1
team, the score being 1 to 1 "nhen the
troopers were forced to get back on
board the transport to sail for the
states. The same teams also played
a series of three games with the AH
Star team from the two big leagues
which toured the Orient last year, get
ting one out of three games from the
leaguers. The mainstay of the soldiers'
team is the pitcher, who Is now touted
as an unknown, nut whose identity
will be revealed Wednesday afternoon
in the game with the El Paso club.
That Stanley Gray boy inaae a big
hit with the El Paso club at Cananea,
on the recent trip to the copper camp.
Gray got away with the Saturday
gsme, and then turned another trick
by catching the Sunday game after
Merritt had been hit by a pitched, ball
while at bat and had his wrist slightlyy
sprained. He also hit like a fiend, the

bat with three men on in the Saturday
game and slashed a line drive to the
center field fence, scoring the three
runs and landing safely at third. It Is
this kind of batting which wins games
these days, and El Paso "looks to be
due for some great baseball as the
offering of the local club.

( manager Harbuck's statement, the man
ager stating that he delivered his re
lease to the new umpire from Vic Wall
ing, who is handling the umpires in the
league this year. In place of Woods,
Mackey will probably be taken on to
make the other umpire for the league.
This gives satisfaction here, as the
Irishman has the knowledge of the
game and ability to handle players
which is necessary for an umpire to
be a succebs in any league, and espe
cially in tills one. where there is no
tangible way of enforcing his authority.
Harbuck, roundup .foreman of the El

one of the depot cars -with a flat wheel.

It is reported that Olin Mills, who
has been plaving center field with
Shreveport inhe Texas league, is to
be released for the present season. Man
ager Harbuck said Tuesday morning
that he had heard of this report, and
if It -was true, he would bring Mills on
to El Paso to join the club here as
a number of the Cactus clubs -were af
ter him, and If he was good enough for
Douglas or any other teams, he was
too good to let them have him. Mills's
raine did not appear in the last game
the Shreveport club played, and it is
understood ' that he is to be given his
release for this season and returned
i.ext year for a regular place on the
Texas league club.

The Commercial league is the latest
organisation of baseball bugs that has
broken into thf local field. The Com

Southwestern Portland Cement club
will double dates in both this league
and the city league; the Butcher boys
will cut up (joke?) in the league and
