The third baseman star of the Cleve

management of the outlaws in Cleve

on the earnestness of the outlaws.
Bradeley in his prime was one of the
freatest third basemen that ever lived,
he only man who has the right to
challenge him for the honor is Jimmy
Collins "Brad" always was recognized
as a player of exceptional cleverness,
and today there are no better fielders
than he. Bill could take the stars of
the two major leagues right now and
post them up a bit on accuracv in
throwing from third station to first.
The reason for Brad's leaving Cleve
land for the Toronto club was a slump
in his batting.

Prize Fighter and Trainer
Goes Through En
Route to Coast.
Jimmy McDonald, prize .fighter,
trainer and one time sparring partner
with such ring stars as Wolgast, Ad
Moran and Freddie Welsh, anjl who
has lately been wearing the gloves o
spar with Jimmy Burns in Los Angeles,
stopped over in El Paso long enough
Wednesday afternoon to take in tile
sights of El Paso and Juarez. '
Jimmy is making the journey from
Los Angeles to Anson, Tex. to take in
hand the training of the latest hope
that has dawned, on the white fighters
horizon. This hope bears the name of
Cass Tarver, and is the heavyweight
find of one Or. Jack Piatt, of Jones
Cass Tarver is a husky, six and a
half foot fellow that tips the beam at
285 pounds, is Just 29rausVoML and
according to reports tteF areT being
circulates, is ine most active uig man
J in the ring that has been seen for some
time Jimmy Mac says tnat lr tne iei
low has half the stuff in him that his
friends claim .he will .sure be some
Tarver has been giving some exhl
tion bouts in Jones county and has the
population quite worked up to the pos
sibilities that in the confines of Texas
this hope may yet wrest the- heavy
weight title from the big smoke. It
wouldn't be half way bad idea for a
white man from this state to -win back
the title, inasmuch as the big "spade"
came originally from Galveson.
Jimmy McDonald is taking Charlie
Cavanaugh with him as an additional
sparring partner for the new hope, and
in the party that came to EI Paso are
Bobble Waugh and Jake Burk. These
two latter will remain in this vicinity
for a while, sight seeing.
According to Jimmy. Tom McCarey.
the fight promoter of the Pacific coast,
has no hankering for staging heavy
weight fistic encounters. Lightweight,
and featheweight bouts, traveling 10
short fast rounds are the thing there,
and the longer mills don't go. Jimmy
says McCarey is considering the ar
rangement of a match with Sam Lang
ford and some hope, to be staged at
Los Angeles, but this is very doubt
ful at present
If the hope doesn't pan out as ex
pected, Jimmy will go on to Oklahoma
City, which has just been opened to
the fight game again, and arrange to
take part in some matches there, as
he Tiad fought several bouts In Okla
homa and Is well known.

English lightweight, was completely
outclassed by Packey McFarland Jn 1
tneir six rouna wui ueiuie me -ttonal
Athletic club last night.
The Englishman was apparently be
wildered by the Chicago boy's speed,
and in the second and third rounds he
scarcely laid a glove on MoFarland.
In the third round in particular.
McFarland smothered Ward with left
jabs and right swings.
In the fourth round McFarland struck
Ward several times with his open glove
and early -in the fifth round, when he
again tried those tactics, the crowd
hissed and called for more action.
Toward the close of the sixth round.
McFarland drove the Englishman
across the ring with right swings, one
of which caused Ward to go to the
mat. He was up in an Instant and
fought back hard until the bell rang.
It was the consensus of opinion that
McFarland was an easy winner.
