Americpi Defeats the Pole
in ITwo Straight Falls
Chicago, 111., June 2. Frank Gotch.
tho Iowa farmer, remains the mat
champion of America as the result of
his defeat here last night of Stanislaus
Zbyszko, Polish champion. The Amer
ican won in two straight falls at the
Colliseum. The victory was made by
skill, speed and head over brawn, bulk
and ignorance of the game.
Gotch outclassed his bulkier oppon
ent in every department of the game.
After Gotch had won the first fall in
the phenomenal time of siz and one
quarter seconds, it was only a question
of how long the Pole couW hold out
against the attack of his more skilled
The hold that sent the Pole down was
a bar lock and half Nelson".
Warned by his sudden downfall,
Zbyszko was more cautious, and it took
Gotcn 27 minutes and 3G seconds to win
the match with -a bar and wrist lock.
The result demonstrated that Gotch
must have been out of condition when
he lost the handicap match to Zbyszko
at Buffalo. In that encounter Gotch
agreed to throw tne Pole twice within
an hour. but failed to get even one fall
in the allotted time.
The American champion -was tendered
a great ovation at the conclusion of
the match. He was borne from the
ring on the shoulders of a howling
mob, while the defeated Pole, with a
look of pain on his face, wa5 barely
able to stagger down the ladder from
the raised iuare.
Reft roe F.emmg said that there was
no doubt in his mind that the first
fall was clean and decisive A feeble
piote was registered by Jack Herman,
tho Pole- manager, b 't apparently he
realized n at he hud no grounds on
nhieh to base it

Ben Lomond. Cal , June 2. There
was some lively boxing- in Jeffries's
camp yesterday, the first for a week.
Jeffries laid down the law to his
sparring- partners before he began, in
timating that if they did not slug hj
would, and the result was Immediately
Bob Armstrong was the first man up.
He rushed Jeffrie from the start and
cut a-llvely pace for three rounds. Just
P before time was called for the bout.
Jeffries drove his glove Into Bob's mid
section and Armstrong- doubled up wiih
Joe Choiskl came next for thre-s
rounds and the pair stepped around in
a clever sparring exhibition, Choynski
displaying much skill.
The main event was a two round go
with Sam Berger. who came last. Jef
fries was evidently saving up for hts
manager and they went at it in a siam

Jeffries replied In kind, much to Ber

bout. These bouts were the nearest
approach to the real thing seen hera
since Jeffries started to work.
Then followed a bit of road work,
and after the boxing came a fast hand

after losing a handball game to Cor

One Hole Tie
tomobile last evening with a party of
friends, Jeffries narrowly escaped an
accident. While rounding a sharp curve
Jpff ries's car suddenly came onto a horse
and buggy. Prompt application of the
brakes averted a collision, but the horse
reared over the front of the car and
overturned the buggy, throwing two
women into the road.
The animal, tearing itself Ipose irom
the buggy, ran away, but was caught
by Jeffries and Dick Adams. Tnev
righted the vehicle and reharnessid
the horse, after which the party con
tinued on to Santa Cruz, where Jef
fries went to take a sea bath.
A signed statement was issued y
Jeffries today with respect to tne recent
discussion as to the possible retirement
of Tex Rickard as referee and the sub
stitution of Eddie Smith. The btate
"In reference to the referee matter,
my position is this: I have accepted
Rickard after stating my preference for
Smith. After accepting Mr. Rickard. in
whom I have every confidence, I can
not very well ask him to resign. He is
good enough for me. But in the event
of his not wishing to act of his own
feeling that it is against the best i -terests
of the match for him to offi
ciate, then ilr. Smith is acceptable to
me- This, however, is decidedly up to
Mr. Rickard, as I can not accept a man
and then ask him to resign. Either
man is acceptable to me. James J. Jeffries."

What Benjamin SA YS
Organization in bnseball Is as much
needed as It Is In any other business.
The 1 roubles of the Cnvtus club, this
yenr is the best jioxslble boost for the
real Cactus lengrue which I.s coming:.
ISBEE or bust and back home
busted if the Mavoru'ks do not do
their expected Sapolio stunt to
the Maroons on Saturnav and Sunday.
The club is going over in state 3'riday
r.lght, not the saire kind cf state I hat
the good old sport, kin.? Edward, was
put away with, but the best the full
man company can suppiv. A shift in
the arrangements has been made by
which the team will go ovir to Bisbec
Friday night instead of Thursday as
firt planned and the fan who wiB go
to Bisbee for the ser'es v. ill have an
opportunity to rub elbow: wth the
aright and shining ons of in 3 Maver
ick layout. A private ir is even
hinted at for the trip, to liv manned oy
one of the best sports among the fans
and, should this be attached tc the
private Pullman in whi-h the club and
rooters are to make tsio irin, the en
trance into Bisbee will be second only
to Caesar's entrance into let's see,
where did old Cae. enter?
Bob Wright has it. In his first prac
tice on the local field Wednesday,
Wright went the distance like a handi
cap winner a:d has everything needed
to fill Flick's place down shortstop
way. Wright will be a permanent fix
ture to the Mav. club from now on and
the Hewitt boy will sh'ift back to his
third base position, where his weight
Is needed to head off the hot ones that
come down that waj. For the present,
McCarty has been berched. His hitting
-lump has put him out of the running,
an)l. for the Bisbee series, manager
Harbuck will fill tne right field posi
tion with one of the three husky
pitchers, who are likewise husky bat
Speaking of pitchers, the local club
has the hitt'enst bunch of pitchers that
ever got together on one club in this
or any other league. Gill slaps the
ball out like a second Wagner. Booles
can be denenden upon for it hit when
needed and Gray has the goat of every
pitcher in the leagu The old story
J that a pitcher need not hit as he has
enough to do to pitch a game, is all
foolishness. A hitting pitcher is as
much of an asset to a team as any other
player and there is no reason for a
slabmen throwing off on his batting
just because he happens to be in the
pivot place. Mister Rumsey. who got
away with his game so w'ell Monday,
Is working better every day and prom
ises to have enough to outguess the
best of the Cactus batters by the time
he works again. Booles is also going
good after his temporary attack of
Charley hrse and will be due to
pitch Sunday's game against Bisbee.
Gill will probablj' pitch the Saturday
game and it will be either Gray or
Booles for Sunday's job with the pitch
ers spelling each other in the sun field.
Flick booted another but his work
in the Fort Worth-Shreveport game at
Shreveport Tuesday was to the good,
aside from this one bingle. He did not
get In on the hitting but had one put
out, four assists and "one lonesome
error. Shreveport won the game from
Ft. Worth in a fast two to one game.
'The managers of the different clubs'
have a hard nut to crack. The ques
tion has been raised by Bisbee and
Cananea as to the propriety of counting
the Friday games in the standing of
the clubs. Harbuck and O'Donovan say
they should bo counted. Walling and
Dalrymple say they should go as exhi
bition games It is presumed that the
matter must be submited to arbitration.
Bob Krakauer. Harry Potter, Edgar
Kayser. Garnett' King, E. P. Kepley,
Dr. Gerome Triolo, Art Woods, E. R.
Thornton, and Jose Peralta are going
to Bisbee for the Saturday and Sunday
games. Tickets, $9.90 plus Pullman
fare $2 each way, is the total damage
for the roundtrip. A number of other
local enthusiasts are expected to join
the party before it leaves Friday een

special Pullman for the trip and, as
the club will consist of VI players
and the manager, the 18 has already
Dalrymple and his men returned to
Bisbee with as raany honors as If thev

of a draw as the best they, could get

wheel because of a collision with a
motorcycle down town Saturday:

he got Monday and Kelly returned

To prove that the baseball writers
are not as devoid of sentiment and real
feeling as the average person'-and espe
cially the ball players would believe,
the following is offered in evidence.

Bob Wright, the new infielder of the
local club, says he has been enjoying
the hot weather immensely, as he was
unable to get good and hot all season
at that East Liverpool place.
In hte polite way Dalrymple has re
