Austin Slumps and Beaumoat
Jumps In the Texas League
Houston. CwlMi, Up, Too, and Lively
AN ANTONIO. Tex
May 28- The woe
ful slump of Aus
tin and the re
shown by Beau
mont, which has
routed Waco out
or first place with
every Indication of
sticking around the
top for a time,
were the features
of the Texas league
during the past
week. The Beaumont team cleanly
and fairly earned their right to first
place as a result of a thrilling series
of ninth Inning finishes at the expense
of Waco. To beat the leaders shows
the team climbed there by virtune of
superior playing and not as result Of
jumping on the little ones.
Beaumont's principal success lies as
much in the loyalty of the fans as in
the excellence of the players and with
both pulling together it has not been
surprising that the team is now hitting
a 2:40 gait on the Texas diamonds.
Onternal differences has disorgan
ized the Austin team. At the first of
the season the Senators started out in
brilliant style and it looked as if the
team was a sure repeater in the pen
nant race. Suddenly Red Downey and
his players began to scrap and the re
sult is that Austin is now fighting-for
cellar honors The release of Parrish,
one of the best pitchers -in the league,
started the trouble. Downey accused
him of 'laying down." Since that time
it looks as if all the other players were
also inclnied to soldier on their Jobs.
Unless there is some ginger thrown
into the team it looks like Austin was
destined to make a mighty poor show
ing. Fort Worth has been showing im
proved form of late. Fresh from a
scries of defeats in the north, manager
Morris Invaded the south and more
than held his own on the home
grounds. The Panthers now have far
from a weak club and as the season
advances this team must be taken into
consideration in figuring which one
will head the list.
Morris has been spending money
freely in the attempt to get new men
and has greatly improved his team.
Down In Galveston Maloney and the
fans are at outs despite the fact the
old veteran of the Texas league is giv
ing the city a good team and the out
look is good for still better baseball.
The rumor had gone over the circuit
that the financial affairs of the Gal
veston club were in bad shape and that
the franchise might be transferred or
the team disorganized. This Maloney
most emphatically denies. He declares
the report that he intends to dispose
of Gene Moore, Clemens, Maag and
Madden, stars of the team, is all bunk
and that the men will continue to play
on with Galveston. Maloney Is a hard
worker. He had little material to work
with at the start, but if Galveston fans
stiok with him it Is pretty certain he
-will be well up in the percentage col
umn at the close of the season.
HBton Demise; TJp.
Houston is showing up stronger. The
team has always been of good ability,
but they have not been hitting the gait
of which they were capable. Houston
has been more or less crippled, due to
sickness and accidents, but has been
going well just the same. Cy Lan
dreth is suffering from rheumatism.
There is no hope that Rlggs or Fill
man will show up in uniform for some
time. In yona; Dooo, who is playing
Fillman's bag. a good utility man hs
been found. He le not sticking much,
but is fielding in fine shape. When
WITH AUTO RACE
Packy McFarland and Ray
Bronson to Go 10 Before
Races at Indianapolis.
Indianapolis. Ind., May 25. Con
tracts and articles have been signed by
Packey McFarland. of Chicago, the
world's 135 pound champion, and Ray
Bronson, of Indianapolis, welterweight
champion, for their 10 round boxing
night in this city on May 29, the
night beforethe big 600 mile motor
race at the Speedway. This boxing
match the most Important that has
ever been held in the middlewest. will
be staked at the American association
baseball park and interest in the com
ing meeting between these men is
growing every day. As it will be given
the night before the biggest auto race
in the history of the world, attendance
at this boxing contest will be enor
mous, as the city will be overflowing
with visitors and already hundreds of
reservations are pouring in for fight
tickets from those who have already
made arrangements to attend the mo
tor race on Decoration day.
The boxing bout will be given under
the management of the Indianapolis
Athletic club, one of the oldest promot
ers of boxing in the middlewest. For
three months negotiations were car
ried on between the club and these two
well known men before contracts and
articles were signed. The weight
agreement is 138 pounds at noon the
dav of the bout. This weight is easy

fighting weight, as it permits him to

Houston gets all regulars In line the
team may be expected to take a win
ning spurt and make some of the other
organizations sit up andTtake notice.
Edmundson, for the team, is doing seme
mighty fancy pitching, having won six
out of eight games pitched. Foster
has won five out of seven, while the
others are not showing up so welL The
team's batting average Is picking up,
Davis and Whiteman batting over the
.300 mark, Landreth, Britton and Rey
nolds showing well up over .250.
Thej umpire trouble is ripe again in
Texas and there is much dissatisfac
tion both on the part of the fans and
with the players and owners. Some of
the kicking seems Justified. Umpires
were employed at low salaries to save
expenses, and most of them were col
lege coaches with little or no experi
ence. The result is constant squab
bling. The sepctators are getting dis
gusted and several games have been
forfeited. President Allen is growing
in unpopularity and there may again be
an attempt to unseat him. Last year
the attempt to put him out as presi
dent was almost of monthly occurrence
and it looks as if this was to' be re
peated again this year.
Mere Cola In Sight.
The outlook over the circuit is for a
better financial season than last year.
The attendance at every point has been
better and despite the fact many
games have had to be postponed on
account of rain the total receipts have
been much larger. Austin's slump has
hurt the attendance there ' and Fort
Worth's gate receipts have' fallen off,
but thi loss has been more than over
come by the gains at other points.
San Antonio is look ins: up somewhat.
Breitenstein. an outfielder, but former
lv a Ditcher, has been pressed into
service in the box and Is showing even
better form than some of the regulars.
He will probably be kept there regu
larly. The batting streak of San An
tonio continues and if the pitchers can
only strike a winning gait the team
will soon be well in the running. Man
ager Leidy is not discouraged and the
team is not so far behind but It is
still in the running and can. by a spurt,
Jump to the top of the column in short
Since going to Beaumont, little The
bo, one of -the Texas veteran players
who was fired by Galveston for break
ing training rules, has taken a mtcn
in his conduct and is behaving himself.
He is makihg a good showing with
the team. He is a popular player in
the circuit and will remain on the pay
roll if he will only behave.
Xewnam. who came to Houston from
St. Louis, is having a good season. He
has always been a speedy first base
man for this company and has appa
rently got back his batting eye. He
has quit baiting the umpires and is
altogether behaving himself In an or
derly and creditable manner.

If the scouts for the big leagues over

for Houston, sems to be a find and
aae greatly stiengthened that depart
ment. He will develop Into a very
tiresome training of reducnlg -weight
and strength. Bronson held out tor
weeks for 142 pounds, but finally
agreed to McFarland's demands. Bron
son lias been in active training for
two weeks and now declares that he
can make the 138 pound figure at the
hour stipulated and enter the ring in
perfect strength and condition.
McFarland and Bronson are old riv
als. When both were legitimate light
freights they boxed a 20 round draw
at New Orleans, in September of 190.
Early in that bout Bronson pnt Mc
Farland down for the count of nine.
McFarland coming back strong and
during the remaining rounds of fierce
mining earned a draw. McFarland con
tinued to box around the lightweight
limit following that fight, although
he had many matches at 135 to 1SS
pounds, his most recent important bat
tle being his defeat of Matt Wells for
the International 135 pound champion
ship in New York last month. Bronson
made a toor of the world and returned
a full fledged welterweight.
In addition to the main bout the club
will give two 10 round preliminary
bouts, bringing together some very
classy boys. After considerable wrang
ling over the matter of referee, it final
ly was agreed that El W. Smith, sport
ing editor of the Chicago American,
should be the third man in the ring.
Owing to the fact that so many box
ing enthusiasts have requested permis
sion to take their wives to this show.
the Indianapolis Athletic club an
nounces that women. wiU be XeaiUed.
As the surt.ug' rapacity at the In
dianapolis Baseball park is enormous,
the promoters have decided upon popu
lar prices for this big show. The ring
will be erected Just south of the home
plate, which will permit an excellent
view of the bout from all seats. The
stands and ring will be brilliantly
lighted with electric lights.

Beat up negro street cleaner in De
Champion Ad Wolgast Very
Nearly Defeated By Willie
Ritchie's Showing Proves That a Champion Is Tottering, and Excuses Regard
ing Hie Showing Did Not Deceive Anybody at AIL
SAN FRANCISCO. CAL.. May 25. All
that Willie Ritchie, the San Fran
cisco lightweight possesses in the
way of prestige is due. directly or in
directly to champion Ad Wolgast. It
was through Wolgast being taken
down with appendicitis that Ritchie
was sent for in a hurry to box Fred
die Welsh at Los Angeles. Prior to that
time Willie was a plain, ordinary four
icund specialist at the Friday night
shows in this city.
As Wolgasfs understudy he per
formed so weU against Welsh that his
star Iwrnti tn umnd. He went east and
commanded matches. He did so well
that he came to be looked upon as a
good, serviceable lightweight.
There is scarcely any need to recall
how Ritchie acquitted himself In bis
recent short bout with Wolgast. He did
so extremely well that those who wit
nessed the bout considered Wolgast a
lucky boy to exoape with his laurels
When anything sensational like that
occurs people at a distance are disin
clined to give full weight to the glowing
accounts that emanate from the seat of
the disturbance. Allowance is made for
a very common human error, namely, a
tendency to exaggerate tne menia oi
the under dog. In a fight crowd par
ticularlv. the hODe of witnessing: the
unexpected sways the emotions, and to i
attach wrong values Is akin to travel- i
Ing the lines of least resistance. j
In this particular instance, however, I
the fact remains that a champion of the
world had 'a remarkably close calL The !
tUng to be avoided is the making of a J
wrong analysis of Wolgast s showing,
that is so far as it appears to indicate
or suggest a permanent-floss of fighting
strength or talent Wolgast was evl
aently distressed after a seemingly
light bumping match with Ritchie, so
much so that the chances are his work
during the remainder of the bout was
Influenced. Wolgast said that the
wrench revived an old Injury to his
back, sustained In a contest some years
His Days Are Over.
A great many when they heard this
murmured "that's all fiddlesticks!" The
operation he underwent has left a weax
spot and that is why he hurt himself
when he slid up on Ritchie's soulders.
A year ago he would not have minded a
little bump like that. His ruggedness is
Impaired and his championship days are
Ad still Insists, however, that it was
his back that was- twisted, and says
there was nothing at any stage of the
contest to remind him that he had ever
been knifed for appendicitis.
It may be as he says and in any case
there Is no harm in waiting for further
light on the subject. If it was merely
a twist of the back that Wolgast suf
fered from, he would soon be- in harness
again. If it was some physical flaw
traceable to the operation we can ex
pect to hear of some of his ring con
ti.aj.ts iulnsr cancelled.
Whatever It was, it must be said
that Wolgast was ill advised in getting
back into harness ao soon.
In the aftermath of ne Ritchie af
fair great stress was laid upon Wol
gast's deficiencies in the boxing line.
He certainly showed poor Judgment,
both of distance and direction, but a
good deal might be said in extenuation.
The most pertinent argument in the
connection is that Wolgast practically
aa not trlve and take work in his
practice sparring before the bout.
The idea that possessed his manager
and himself was that the question of
assimilating was the main issue. The
thlnsr to be proved was whether the
Wolgast midriff could stand rough
ttaage and Wolgast's sparring part
n&cs were under orders to slam away
at oor Aa's stomach region without

was te measure a lay figure. He

that Wolgast is a back number by any
means. Willie entertains a very lively
recollection of the first knock down
he suffered at Wolgast's hands or
rather at Wolgast's left hand and is
satisfied moreover that Wolgast, in ad
dition to being a cruel hitter is be
wilderingly fast and shifty.
An apparent shortage on Wolgast's
part Ritchie attributes to insufficient
lapse of time since the operation and
insufficient training. Willie has no
means of knowing what Is passing in
Wolgast's mind in regard to future
ring engagements, but is satisfied tuat
