Fiji Islands Have Great Time G-oing Over
and Become Members of l the
Order of Neptune.
(By T. S.
Oct. 15. The
Suva. Fiji Island,
American boxers have had the finest
kind of a trip across the -wide Pacific
and when thev reach home they will
have as many yarns to tell to their
friends as the: Jackies of the American
fleet -when they returned from their
tour of the world- The weather has
been excellent. There has been no ill
ness whatever among' the boys. They
had a splendid time during- their stay
at Honolulu, and -were entertained
royally. Arrangements had been made
for an exhibition, but owing to the
Supposed late arrival of the Zealandia
the promoters had decided to call it
off, and instead of giving a display
of their fistic poewrs they were the
recipients of a grand -welcome on the
part of many sporting men and busi
ness men Interested in sports. Tf
Battling Nelson had been along it
-would have given him all kinds of op
portunities to rival Jack London as a
descriptive writer. The stop at Hawaii
was just enough to give the boys a
chance to get their "sea legs" in order
for the remainder of the voyage to
At Honolulu there were several
American boxers who were anxious 'to
join the quartet and visit Australia,
among them heing Charlie Reilly of
San Francisco; Jack McFadden of the
same place and brother of the well
known Kid McFadden, and Dick Sulli
van, of California. Reilly intends to
follow on the next boat to Sydney.
Jola "tke Order of Xentnre.
Crossing the equator the boxers were
given a test of real sea life, when
they were made members of the Order
of Neptune.- They were put through
the rites in royal style, Bronson,
Clabby, Thompson and Papke, being,
given -the bath and all that goes with
it. Fiv5t they- were placed under arrest-
'Then followed the usual shave
by the ship barker and his -wooden
ranor. The doctor followed with his
terrible medicines, and the policeman
helped them Into the tank of water,
a hig -sheet of canvas being used lor
the same. The court of Neptune
looked like a gathering of Zulu war
riors. Bronson said It was worse
than going 40 rounds with Rudy Un
holr.. Another amusing feature was
blindfold boxing by the .Americans and
some of the Australian-cadets. It -was
something new in the line of boxing.
CyclOHe Tkempson Caujrht Geld.
Cyclone Thompson had a cold for a
lew days, 'ana it stopped nis training,
but he soon recovered and resumed
"his work. After passing the equator
"the boys got down to real -work so as
to be in shape for exhibitions at Suva
.and Bris'bane, the first city on touch
ing Australian soil. Bronson and
Thompson sparred lightly every day and
Jtfe--from thr"ee to five miles on the-i
"4eck every morning. Clabby did no
boxing , until . he. . reached Suva and
Papke also held off until the Fiji
Islands -were reached, although they
both did considerable walking and
running. Thompson and Bronson had
the sailors make an improvised punch
ing bag which they installed on the
deck of the second cabin and made
good use of it. In this manner- Cyclone
took off about ten pounds and )got
down to near his fighting weight.
Bronson also took off conslderahle
-weight, as he had gained quite a bit
the first -week out and is now almost
In shape for any of the Australian
lightweights. Clabby -was anxious to
add a few pounds to his bones and he
Is just a little light at present and
prefers to be near the 150 pound mark
than at the -welterweight limit of 145

spirits and says he has no fear of the
outcome of his four battles no matter
whether thejr are middleweights or

Fighting Game Loses Picturesque
Character In Death Of Ketchel
(By W. W. Naughton)
San Francisco, CaL, Nov. 3. With
the untimely taking off of Stanley
KetcheL the fighting game loses its
most picturesque characJ-er. The p"ty
of it is from the present outlook of
things, Ketchel at the time of tbe
-tragedy was about to enter into the
simple life in earnest and endeavor
to atone to himself for the inroads he
had made on his wonderful constitution
by careless living.
If a letter received from XTetchel
not long before his death can be taken
as an earnest declaration of his in
tentions, ,he proposed to devote himself
to the lumber business and to that end
had. purchased a tract of timber land
near Springfield, Mo. He intimated
that he was through with the game
of the gloves, but Til be bound if
Ketchel felt his dash returning after
a sojourn in the big tree country, he
would have been found fighting again
and fighting the very hest.
Ketchel's Fame Meteoric.
Ketch el's rise to fame was indeed
meteoric. A little over three years
ago the youngster -was unknown.
While Bill Squires and Tommy Burns
were preparing for their 4th of July
contest In 1907, Ketchel found his way
into California, and secured a match
with Joe Thomas, the San Francisco
favorite. They were to box at Marys
ville, and when Ketchel arrived in the
town mentioned, unkempt and un
shorn, some one asked, "Who's your
"Trainer!" replied Ketchel; "I'm
lucky to be here myself."
He was morl anxious about being
sent to the nearest restaurant proper
ly credentialed, then he was about
Marysville training facilities, and it
might really be feaid that it was on
square meals Ketchel conditioned him
self foC the match.
His confidence -was intact. He wrote
' me from Marysville prior o the fight,
"You don't know me; but I want you
to watch my career, and give me a bit
of a sendoff if you think I deserve
Shared J?ame With Burns. - -
Ketchel and Thomas fought on thei
English champon, for the title of
Great Britain. Piipke also plans a
fight or two in iaris after his English
engagement; in lact he may take on
an extra man if afcked to do so before
starting for England.
Bronson is hot after the lightweight
and if he wins all his battles in Aus
tralia he will immediately go after Ad
Wolgast for the championship and en
deavor to get on with Freddy Welsh in
England before Packy McFarland gels
to the other side of the pond. Pro
moter Mcintosh has offered a purse of
$20,000 for a contest between either
Bronson or Thompson against "Wol
gast. to ake place in Australia, the
distance to be 20 rounds. This Is prob
ably more than any club in America
will offer at the present time. Bron
son can easily make the weight for
"Wolgast, but with Thompson it will be
a harder job, although the Illinois
cyclone says he will make 133 pounds
ringside whenever the champion will
agree to a match, and he will also
wager ?5000, but this only for a cham
pionship match. Clabby will in all
probability be matched with Young
Joseph or Harry Lewis in England for
the welterweight title of the world, as
Mr. Mcintosh has intimated that he
will make the date for the Milwaukee
champion some time in February.
Walter Owens, the Indianapolis
trainer, who is with Ray Bronson,
will have a busy time on the trip, as
he has" practically arranged 1o train
Thompson and Clabby in addition to
Bronson, and lie will also help Papke
In case Duke Mullins does not arrive
in time from England. Owens has
been a trainer the past five years
and has made a success of his work.
It Is the intention of Owens to open a
school of physical culmrs after nis re
turn to the States.
Tvrfsted on Birthday.
A peculiar incident in connection
-with the chanin of lime at the
equator or after passing it. to be cor
rect, was the wiping out of Ed K.il-
patrlck's birthday. Edward is a
brother of Charlie lCllpatri-;k the well
known American cycle performer, and
Intended celebrating his loth birthday
aniversary on Sept. 25, but in this case
the 25th does not come around at all,
for when they -ent to bed on Saturday
evening, the 24th, they woke up next
morning to -find that they had lost a
day, it being the 26th. Now Ed is
-wondering whether he is 40 or 39 years
of age. He -will have no i chance to
celebrate now until Sept. 25, 1911.
The Story of Ah Fong.
Many American people remember the
story of Ah Fong, the rich Chinese
merchant of Honolulu, who some years
ago left his wife in that city and re
turned to his native land because of
the request -of. high officials in China. J
This was 15 years ago. Air Fong was
immensely wealthy and had 17 chil
dren by his Portuguese wife, 14 of
'-whom were girls anil three boys. Ah
Fong settled something like 20,000
on each of the children before leaving.
Since that time most of the girls have
married, some of them to very promi-
boys are also manned. Two of thai
sons are prominent brokers of that
city. Mrs. Ah Fong remained a -widow ,
until two years ngo, when she was
wedded to a Japanese merchant. Mr.
Ah Fong has ever returned to 'Hono
lulu since his departure 15 years ago.
Leper Colony De-ireaes. j
The leper colony in Hawaii is de
creasing, according to officials at
Honolulu. The colony, -which is
located on the island of Mola
kai, contains 1200 of the poor wretches
now, -whereas there were some 1800 a
few years ago. The new treatment
which -was recently introduced in
Europe and which proved very success
ful in many cases, has been in use at
Molakai and several cures are reported,
but the doctors do not seem to have
the same confidence in the new toxine
that the Europeans have. Great; care
same day as Burns and Squires, and
when the world was ringing 'with
Burns's praises, the wonderful showing
of novice Ketchel provided a com
panion topic Ketchel certaintly de
molished the California idol; and so
that there might be no doubt about it
administered defeat to Thomas a sec
ond and third time. '
Ketchel's wonderful natural fighting
talents were quickly recognized. He
-was compared to Fitzsimmons on ac
count of his, employment of the shift
punch; but it is doubtful If Fitzsim
mons in his palmiest daj-s ever kept
an opponent guessing theway Ketchel
did. With his swaying, twisting mo
tion, his undulating shoulders and his
feet almost aligned, there was no tell
ing which side the fearful shift was
coming from, and when it landed, it
was certainly a deadening smash.
Failed to Conserve Hiss Nerve Force.
If Ketchel had only conserved hia
nerve force and stamina, there is rea
son to believe that he' would have be
come not onlj- the hope of the white
race, but its reliance in the mainte
nance of pugilistic supremacy.
A gamer lad never peeped over a
glove. Many of the men who have
attained greater heights in the pugilis
tic profession have shown unmistaka
ble signs of trepidation in their early
fights; but to see this fellow enter the
ringwasi to know that he loved fight
ing for the excitement it afforded
If it ever came that he was sus
pected of .avoiding a prospective op-
t ponent. it was because of the common
human failing that he had tasted the
delights which hinge upon popularity
and was averse to taking any chancel
that might tumble him from his proud
There were others before him that
felt that way about things when they
became acquainted -with the higher
rungs of theV ladder of fame, and I
have no doubt it -was the same, far
back in the misty past.
Wen a Likable Fellow.
Ketchel was a likable fellow and will
be remembered kindly by all who have
taken an interest in the pugilistic hap
penings of the past few years.
Iwo Great Horses Adopt
a Dog Apiece For P
Minor Heir's mascot on the left; Dan
Great horses, like great men, haa
their peculiarities and have to be hu
mored in their fads.
Dan Patch, the greatest of harness
horses, is no exception to thl3 rule.
The peerless pacer has several fancies
that Hersey and the caretakers lenow
and carefully heed. Among the most
unusual of these is the horse's love ib?
The haughty Dan, who has lowered
the colors of the proudest pacers of the
world, and who accepts the homage ni
multitudes, is meek and gently
thoughtful of the canine pet lhat is
lucky enough to have won his favor.
It is the little, dog that Dan cares
most for and he is never more contest

shire terrier. The favorite is known as
is taken in all the islands to see that
no lepers are permitted to mix with
other people, and in this manner the
terrible disease is being kept under
control. One of the real heroes of
Molakai is Joseph Dutton, an American
officer, who has sacrificed himself to
the cause of the lepers. He has.-Jbeei
on thei sland 20 years and will remain
there until the end.
Think Var Will Come.
People in the states have the im
pression that there is no chance o?
a -war between Japan -and the United
States, but the residents of Honqlulu,
especially the soldiers, have a very
different opinion.1 You can hardly
find a soldier there who does not be
lieve there is grave danger of a con
flict, if not in the near future then
within' the next ten years. They will
tell you that the IS. S. government is
not putting in great defences at Dia
mond Head and Pearl Harbor for mere
play, and that ' there is something
slgnificent in the order to increase the
number of regulars Yrom 1500 to 4000. j
Every one seems to have the Japanese
bugaboo and they are all praying for
the early completion of the Panama
canal, for they say they are at the
mercy of the Japs until the big canal
is completed, when Uncle Sam can
send his Atlantic squadron through at
a moment's notice. In the meantime,
Honolulu is fast being made a model
city and very much American, despite
the fact that there 'are 60,000 Japs
against 20,000 whites in the islands,
and 60,000 natives.

HORSE AND TURF NOTES.
f By Bert E. Collyer.
. . -.
r . T ! t
Chicago, HI., Nov. 3. Tre close
proximity of the National Horse Show,
Madison Square garden, November 14
to 19, is productive of the information
that never before in the history of the
great annual horse conclave has there
been such an astounding amount of
enthusiasm. The public, the horsemen
and the exhibitors, are all counting
upon an entry list that will establish
far and away a new record.
The Messrs. "Vanderbilt have ex
pended great quantities of money
again this year, not only aiming to
make the Madison square affair the
rival of London's famous Olympla, but
best of all to bring before the .proper
people the real worth of the horse.
Speaking of the Vanderbilts brings
to mind that Alfred G. has notified
the management of the International
that he -will act as judge of the heavy
harness classes. The directors of the
Chicago conclave naturally feel elated,
for Mr. "Vanderbilt is universally re-
garded as the world'.s most enthusias-
tic patron of horse Bhows and one of
jthe greatest authorities on heavy har
ness horses. Mr. Vanderbilt has also
consented to enter some of his prize
winning ponies. .
Another and interesting .feature, of
the announcement of the acceptance of
Mr. "Vanderbilt to officiate is that It
marks the burying of' that now famous
feud hatchet of a few years back,
FANCY BATTLING NELSON IN
IHE OL OF
(By W. W.
San Francisco, Nov. 3. -If the line
separating amateurdom and ithe domain
of the professional bruiser becomes a
little, more indistinct we may have
Battling Nelson applying for reinstate
ment among the fellows who box for
badges and tin mugs.
Wouldn't that be a corker? Just
fancy ofd Bat promising reformation
and attempting to explain away the
wealth he garnered through beating
Gans, Britt and a few others. "
It sounds like a far-fetched joke, but
just listen. Bat is matched to fight
"One-Round" Hogan In San Francisco
this month and ihe promoters who
lhandle Hogan and boys of his stamp
are virtually indignant because the
police and district attorney prevented
Hogan gracing an amateur exhibition.
They take exception to the claim that
he is a full fledged professional.
Will Have to Tone 'Em Down.
The police and district attorney seem j
to liavo made their point this time and
the purveyors of '"amateur boxing'
will have to confine their attention to
glove men who are so humble in the
walks of pugilism, that there Is no tell
ing whether they are amateurs or pro
fessionals. The rumpus of the iduchly-billed
four round go between Anton LaGrave
and "One Round" Hogan was the
"steenth" that had been started in
connection with the amateur phase of
pugilism. District attorney Fickert
made several complaints about the way
the promoters had been doing business,
but somehow it seemed as if the hand
lers of bogus amateur sport had friends
at court and could laugh at all Fick
ert's threats and warnings. Now that
Fickert has put his foot down firmly,
it will be interesting to note what the
Friday night -shows of- the 'future will
Here is a brief review of the ama
teur situation. Years and years ago
Alex, Greggains, who ran a develop
ing school on Sixth street, started a
series of Friday night entertainments.
He arranged weekly series of four
round goes and as far as could be seen,
kept his colts within the limits of the"
Greggains in time withdrew from the
business and other promoters sprang
up. The Friday night shows became
popular and profitable, and cheating
began. A "past-board of supervisors
sought to regulate the sj5ort and
framed an ordinance -which provided
that ,any club -with the necessary cre
dentials and equipment could promul
gate amateur boxing., by the payment
of a yearly license of $250.
Amatevtrj-.clubs sprang up oyer. ,nlg.ht
like mushrooms. They all professed
which at the time threatened the life
of the International Horse Show, and
in which the Moore horses were open
ly alleged to have been "favored" over
the Vanderbilt, who at the time was
supposed to have an invincible string.
At the time the Vanderbilts announced
that thev never would again exhibit I
The minority stockholders of the
TVpKtrtlipster Racinsr association are
! soon to call to account their directors
for having failed to conduct the at
fairs of their property to best advan
tage, by not making use of the dates
asigned them by the Jockey club this
fall for racing. These dates were fori
12 days' racing, from September -6 to
October S. The, outcome of this suit
will be. awaited eagerly by those in
terested in the welfare of the turf,
since a question wil be raised as to,
the constitutionality of the Agnew-j;
Perkins law. i
The directors of the Westchester
Racing association -will make answer!
by stating- that under the clause of the ;
Agnew-Perkins law, which holds di
rectors responsible for any illegal act
committed on the premises under their
jurisdiction, they -were unable to con
duct a race meeting without running
the risk of a jail sentence, since, CFe
spite any or all precautions, which
they might take, there would in all
likelihood be found persons 'who would
bet regardless of the law.
It will then be for the courts to
While a feeling of -unrest or uncer
tainty apparently permeates the east
ern turf, with little or no hope- being
held out by the solonatic body that
the sport will be continued in New
York tracks in 1911, it is interesting
-to chronicle that R. T. Wilson, jr., the
dominant factor In the Saratoga Rac
ing association, states that there will
be 40 days of racing at the Spa come

'Saratoga profited by the chaotic con
ditions that existed about New York
to such an extent that not since 1903
has the association been able to show
such a handsome balance on the right

course prevailing at other "palatial
courses," when threatened, the dlrec

planning great things for next season.
Abe Attell Is Willing
To Tackle McFarland
Chicago, HI., vNov. 3. Abe Attell,
the greatest little man who ever
stepped into a ring, today announced
his Intention of seeking a match with
Patekey McFarland. Abe, however,
stipulates that the stockyards fighter
must "do some weight."
"I dont intend letting- McFarland
come in as a full fledged welter," said
the versatile Abe. "I don't mind giv
ing away a matter of 10 pounds, but
over that it's taking too many chances.
You see I only weighed 124 pounds
when I fought White in Milwaukee,
and I a'm past the growing stage.
Til Allow McFarland- In at 1S5, but
not a pouod- over. I understand that
Packey has been doing considerable
tailking. Just by way of making it
interesting Til bet him $1000 ringside
odds. Tha'ts some inducement,
pecially in view of the fact that I am j broken In his recent mill at Fon Du
going- out of my legitimate class. Lac, will have completely 'healed.
Speaking about "class" brings to j The trouble with Wolgast's left
mind the Attell-Whif e battle. In his j arm, his chief reliance, was that the
gymnasium work, 'White showed up original break had not quite healed
like, a- whirlwind, he pummeled his j and was susceptible. An X-Tay pho
sparrlng partners about as so many j tograph of the fracture snows the -new
nne pins, but when he faced the "hu- ; break to be considerably longer than
man fox," he was at sea. White's Dest
punches were easily parried, in fact It
? the same principles. All they wanted j
was to give- the . public shows long
enough to gather the .money to buy
gymnasium paraphernalia and make
the clubs comfortable for their mem
bers. It was all a huge joke. It stopped
genuine amateur clubs from fostering
amateur boxing and as the thing went
on, no secret was made of the fact
that the amateurs were paid in money.
Lately the promoters have intro
duced scrub professionals into the
Friday night bouts. As a matter of
fact, it seemed to be a case where
there was no attempt to cover their
Hogan and Burns.
Two of the greatest rivals in the
amateur ranks were One Round Hogan
and Frankie Bums. They fought sev
eral times and the question of su
iorfferity was never definitely settled.
The pair were advertised to such an
extent that the professional promoters
made bids for them. An effort was
made to match " Hogan and Owen
Moran, but the terms offered didn't
suit Hogan's manager.
Frankie Burns quickly accepted
when he was given a chance, to meet I
Moran and the nair boxed at Dream- I
land several weeks ago. Burns put up
a pretty good fight at that, several of
the critics being of the opinion that 1
he held hjs own with the traveled
Britisher. ' As Burns has boxed for
some of the Friday night clubs since
then, it is very evident that his little
venture into the professional ranks
was not looked upon as a detriment to
his "amateur" standing.
Hogan was matched with Anton La
I Grave, a, professional -who "has no less
a manager than our old friend, Sam
Fitzpatrick, and -who Is known as the
pride of Butcher Town. La Grave has
boxed in the dayllglit arena at Colma
many a time and has often appeared in
the rings of the big clubs in this city.
This Hogan-LaGrave go was the one
that Fickert and the chief of police
squelched a few nights ago.
Even while Hogan was training for
LaGrave, it was given out that Hogan
had been matched with Battling Nel
son and that the pair would be handled
by promoter Griffin in this city during
Such has been the amateur situa
tion in San Francisco. The Hogan
LaGrave fight was stopped, -but the
Hogan-Nelson match will go on. So
far no pretense has been made that it
is to be an amateur function. In view ;
of the district attorney s auicuae, u .
looks .as though Hogan will have to
remain a professional after he gets
through with the terrible Dane

t Cananea, Son., Mex., Nov. 1.
Editor El Paso Herald:
In regard to the question of who is
entitled to the championship of the
Cactus league, while there is no de
bate about it either in Bisbee, Douglas
or Cananea, in order that your fans
may know why El Paso is not entitled
to it, will you kindly publish this let
ter. The standing of the clubs in the Cac
tus league on Sunday, October 9, after
Cananea had beaten El Paso, 3 to 2,
in El Paso, was as follows:
Cananea 53 30
Douglas 54 30
El -Paso 51 .28
Bisbee 53 .23

Before October lo, however, Bisbee
advised that its club had disbanded
and would be unable to meet Cananea'
for the balance of the schedule. There
were but two propositions open fori
the other teams in the Cactus league; j
either the Cactus league closed its sea- I
son of 1910 with the disbanding of thej
Bisbee - team or the season continued f
until October 23 as per schedule witli
Douglas playing- El Paso, and Bisbeo
forfeiting the four scheduled games
with Cananea on account of having no
team xo pui m me iieiu. in order to
show that Cananea is entitled to the
credit of these four forfeited games,
the 1910 code of playing rules for play
ing baseball and which rules governed
the Cactus league, states under "for
"Rule 26 A forfeited game shall be
declared by the umpire in favor of the
club- not in fault, in the following
"Sec. 1 If the team of a club fail
to appear upon the field."
In the event of the clubs deciding
that the season closed after Bisbee dis

card. The race was one of the prettiest
seen at the local track since Sonoma
Girl appeared here three , years ago
with McMahon up. The first half of
the first heat was a neck and neck
race and the two beautiful mares fin
ished almost in a dead heat. Wallace
handled his own -norse so did McMa
hon and both displayed excellent
horsemanship. "Wild Girl got away a
little to th'e good in the second heat
with McManon using his waiting tac
tics.. Wild Girl led to the stretch of

strong and won by another close finish,
each heat being- run in 2:20 flat. Fair
Maiden took the third and final heat In
the same easy manner, the: time of th
three heats being the same.

Dr. J. A. Edmond's Bobs failed to do
as well Wednesday In the county pace
as on Tuesday when he won the county
trot. Bobs had not been in a pacing
race for five years and ae broke his
stride on every occasion. Dan M, owned
by J. W. Gale, won both heats of the
pace from Bobs and Annie Laurie, W.
J. Harris's little mare, driven by John
Freed. The time of the three heats
was 2:41, 2:38.

Hoyle surprised the field by running

The mile run was called for four
horses all starting. Misprison took
command from Johnnie Sparks, which
showed a burst of early distance speed.
Cardinal Sarto, the favorite, was
never in the race and just did manage
to finish third in a field of four. Mis
prison, which was given away at the
close of tfne winter meeting last year,
came up from the outside and took the
race away from La Dextra, -which was
a contender to the last.
