JEFFMESWORUIG EL PASO LOSES
OUT IN SPLENDID SU1DHTS GAME
SKAPE.SPORTSSAY TO DOUGLAS
Ben Lomond, CaL. May 23. Chief of
police Martin, of San Francisco, visited
Jeffries's camp Sunday, and after expressing-
pleasure at the fighter's fine
conditon, surprised everybody with this:
"I am going to take personal super
vision of all fighting- from now on. That
goes with the big fight as well as for
lesser bouts. The fight fans should be
protected, nnd I believe I know enough
of the game to see that its patrons do
not get the worst of it- The moment
a fight looks peculiar to me. I'll stop
it without consulting either referee or
Fifty members of the Olympic club
and a number of San Francisco sport
ing men saw Jeffries work out Satur
day in his fastest boxing bouts of the
training season. It consisted of nine
fast rounds with Jack Jeffries. Joe
Choynski and Bob Armstrong. Besides
chief Martin, the camp was visited for
the first time by Jack Gleason. He
merely paid a social visit, talking no
business with anybody.
The fighter followed the glove work
with shadow boxing, rope skipping and
two fast games of handball. All thi
labor followed five miles on the road
and an hour's row on the river. No
work was. attempted during the after
noon, Jeffries with his partner, Jack
Kipper, and chief Martin leaving for
Santa Cruz in Tex Rickard's automo
bile. Jack Gleason paid his respects to Jef
fries for the first time since the estab
lishment of the Ben Lomond training
camp. The copromoter was merely
making a friendly call and bad no busi
ness chat with Jeffries.
Hughie Jennings, manager of the De
troit Tigers, is not only a great baseball
player, but he is a brainy man as well.
His opinion is of value on the chances
of the teams in the American league
despite the fact that he is an interested
He predicts that he will duplicate the
feat of Charlie Comlskey, who is the
only big league manager who ever won
four consecutive Championships. The
latter turned the trick with the St.
Louis Browns of 1S85, 1886, 18S7 and
18S8. Frank Chance nearly duplicated
Ihis record with the Chicago Cubs. That
aggregation won three flags and then
finished second to the Pirates. The Pi
rates also won three flags, in 1901,
1902 and 1903. Ed Hanlon's Baltimore
Orioles grabbed a trio of champion
ships In 1894, 1895, 1896 and finished
second to Boston In 1SS7.
Jennings now says that he will win
the flag for the fourth time, and will
cap It by winning the world's cham
pionship. He says:
"Detroit is in splendid shape to re
peat this year. We won our first pen
nant in 1907 and came right back with
two more flags In 1908 and 1909. Chi
cago beat us for the world's champion
ship in 1907 and 1908, but Pittsburg
had to hustle to whip us last year.
"Baseball is a wonderful Institution,"
also says Jennings. "Just think of it,
the Detroit team made $200,000 last sea
son. That's going some for a little
town like the Michigan metropolis. But
we drew big coin on the road; in fact
the Tigers outdrew every other club
in the American league away from home
by more than 25,000.
"The present owners of the Detroit
team bought the club, lock, stock and
barrel, five years ago for $30,000. Since
then the team has made more than
$500,000 and you couldn't buy the plant
today for' 5500,000. The Detroit team Is
liberal with its players and that is one
of things that makes the boys play
hard. Ty Cobb draws $9000 a year
and others of the team draw big sal
aries. Last year the bonus handed me
by the management was more than ten
times what my salary was the first year
I played professional baseball. This spir
it is what makes the team the solid or
ganization that it is and enables us
to win pennants."

There was a game played at El Reno,
Okla., last week which will probably

about to pick up the ball and toss it to

on a player who was working with a
semi-pro team in Denver and he ran
away to see the youngster perform. In
the third inning, with no one out, the
bases were full and the batter up hit
a high fly. The pitcher was standing

hands, hit him on top of the head and
bounded on the fly to the third base
man, who touched third. The umpire
called it a double play Instead of allow
ing the infield out. and the game was
won right there.

Douglas, Ariz., May 23. Booles with
a snre arm and Kane going good tells
j the story of the Sunday game, the final
one of tne uemon-iia.vtrnun. '.
Booles was able to stay but three in
nings because of his arm, which had
been bothering him since coming to
Douglas, but during those three innings
he allowed seven Tuns. He was then re
lieved by Rumsey, who started the game
Saturday. Five hits and three runs
were made off of Rumsey's delivery but
the runs were credited more to El Paso's
errors than the pitcher's work. Rum
sey batted better than usual, getting
three hits in four times up. Both Ketch
urn, of El Paso, and "Walters, of Doug
las got home runs during the game and
the' hitting was heavy throughout the
game, although many easy chances went
for hits because of the ragged fielding
of -the two clubs.
El Paso demonstrated an ability to
play losing ball in the third game. At
one time the score was 10 to 0 and the
Mavericks kept up their nerve and saw
the game through, scoring nine runs
and allowing the Douglas club to score
but two more, making the total 12 to 9
in favor of Douglas, after E-J Paso had
won the first two.

portation good for the round trip to
Ward and Ford in the first and fifth in

during the session. Jackson fared bet
ter, allowing but two hits in the last
three innings. He also got away with a
batting record equal to Gray's of the
day before. In five times up Jack hit
four safe ones and negotiated a home
run in the sixth inning off of Pitts.
Walters succeeded Pitts in the box and
finished the game without letting the

Booles's sore arm was the cause of
Jackson being shifted to the box. as it
was not certain that the redhaired
pitcher could go in Sunday, and Gray

proved that El Paso has another utility
man In addition to Stanley Gray, who
has mtde as big a hit -here as at home.

THE GAME FROM
JOHNSOM SJIYS HE IISBEE WINS THE
San Francisco, Cal., May 23. At last
Jack Johnson has shown his spunk. He
is afflicted with too much fan, it seems.
Saturday Jack did no training, and all
sorts of rumors started. "He is going
stale," said some; others, "He is losing
too much weight."
"I am going to train just as suits
myself and not the puDlic," declared
Johnson somewhat angrily when ques
tioned why he did not go Into the gym
nasium. "As I said when I first came
here, no one in the world is going to
dictate the amount of work that is done
except Jack Johnson. I have always
attended to my own training and I am
too old to let the public disturb me. I
did not go into the gymnasium today
simply because I did not need the work.
With as much time ahead of me, I
would be a fool to knuckle down to
boxing. I would be sure to go Into the
ring stale and f want to be ght for
"Ordinarily I box three or four weeks
for a fight, and as I will work right
up to July 2, you can see for yourself
that there will be enough time. I c
easily have postponed my work until
the first of June. As soon as 1 am
good and ready I will box four "times
a week, but that Is all."
"It was the same old story on the
road this morning," declared Sig. Hart
as he returned to camp, lagging be
hind Johnson. "Jack is In great shape
for road work and he sprints a lot."
BIjr Crowd Sunday.
But Sunday found Johnson at it be
fore even a larger crowd than on the
opening day. He worked rapidly, send
ing Cotton to camp with a bleeding
mouth after a punch In tha stomach In
the fourth round. Cutler, complaining
of ill health, stalled until George Little
called time at the end of another four
rounds. The negro ai.co went after the
bag and the mediclr.e ball aid some
new exercises with "weights.
Following the workout Johnson
weighed 218 pounds, as against 224
pounds of just a week ago. His bay
window has receeded out of sight The
negro will box no more until Wednes
day, but he promises to work in he
gym everv morning. After June 1 J" 1 n
son says he will box at least four limes
a week, and perhaps every day.

In a grand slugfest off Max Reardon,
including four three-baggers in succes-
slon, Bisbee took the first game from
Cananea at cananea oaiuiuaj auci
noon. Reardon lasted until the eighth,
when a sucucession of doubles and
triples netted seven tallies. He retired
in favor of Wylie in the middle of the
Bisbee scored two in the second by
consistent clouting. Cananea came
through with three in the fifth, but in
the eighth Reardon went to pieces.
The game was devoid of any wrang
ling and apparently Cananea and Bisbee
were the best of friends. Mackey um
pired and the decisions went unques
tioned. Last night the Bisbee players were
the guests of the Cananea club for a
ride about town and Into the moun

Cananea for the two games. The root

In view of the crowds that Bisbee,

more so by the cognomen of "Dolly,"
Is acknowledging a huge joke on him
self due to unfamiliarity with the cli
matic conditions and waterless water
ways of the district.
Gray Is a great sportsman, likes hunt
ing and also likes his fishing. When
he packed up at Joplin, Mo., to come
to Arizona among the first things he
thought of bringing, outside his collec
tion of baseball bats and gloves, was
three rifles. The rifles were all right,
but second only to their importance he
stored away in his trunk about $30
worth of the finest fishing tackle one
could find west of the Mississippi.
Fancy flies, rods, hooks, lines, reels and
tackle of all descriptions were among
the outfit, and Gray came to Bisbee
fully expecting to revel in the glories
of trout fishing in the mountain
streams. When he told his friends here
about it he was subjected to the big

might fish out a few boards from the

San Antonio, Tex., May 21. The con

New York Giants, who is ill at the St.
