It is fortunate that the card will
bring on two straight up boxers, and
bottt bad eggs with the gloves. It will
be boxing, as both Kills and Moran are
of the old school of give and take, not
deigning the crouch, but hitting
straight from the shoulder. Mills has
something of a rep as a hefty hitter,
and lately has been fighting in those
weekly four round boats at San Fran
cisco. So it is believed that the negro
will go his best in the first few
rounds, as he has been accustomed to
do. and they say he has a terrible

As the time draws nigh we can think
of nothing to say of the Johnson

of it already. It is one of those
things where a prediction is a reflec

whether Flynn wins or Johnson wins
will make no difference. A clnmsy
slugger like Flynn ought to be
ashamed of himself even if .be wins,
and Johnson cannot be proud of him

White Hope of Anson, Tex..
to Challenge Johnson
Plainview. Tex., July 3. Dr. Piatt, of
Baltimore, exhibited his recently found
"white hope." Cass Tarver, of Anson.
Tex., in a five round sparring match
with Frank Mayo, of Chicago, in this
town. The bis young fellow looked
mio-htv srood to local fight fans, and
had an easy time handling his veteran
sparring partner from Chicago, who
has been working with him for the last
three months. ,-.,.
Tarver's measurements are: Height,
6 feet 6 Inches; arm length, 35 Inches;
reach. 81 inches; neck. 13 inches; waist.
36 inches; chest. 4G inches; weight, 246
pounds. He has been pronounced by
Harvard university physical culturists
to be the nearest perfect specimen of
manhood, over 6 feet 2 inches, that
they have ever come across.
In several private bouts In Texas,
no one has been found who could
stand before him longer that 30 sec
onds. Dr. Piatt expressed himself as
being considerably peeved over losing
a chance to put his charge up against
Carl Morris, in Oklahoma. July 4. The
bout was matched with A. C. Framp
rm who manasred the Morris-Schreck ,
affair, when Frampton became a little
nervous and sent a "spotter" to Anson
to watch Tarver work, about June 15.
The spy wired back to Frampton, so
Dr. Piatt says: "Call off bout; Mor
ris no match for Tarver."
The party was on its way to Las
Vegas, where the winner of the Johnson-Flynn
fight will be challenged.
Both Piatt and Mayo say that the
negro will win, and that the odds
should be 10 to 1 against Flynn. Mayo
has sparred with Flynn, and says that
Tarver is many times the better man,
and that he' will be the one man to
meet Johnson successfully after the
"little vaudeville act" as Las Vegas is
over. Tarver is booked to meet Dan
Daly, a Pennsylvania "white hope,"
whose manager is Jimmy Dine,
and a Chicago "white hope." who
is yet unknown to the Texas boy,
in New Mexico, probably at Clovis and
Albuquerque. Dr. Piatt says that his
man will take on any reputable fight
er In the world, and that all challenges
should be sent to "Cass Tarver, Anson,

INTO BASEBALL STAR
RTHUR SHAFrT. is
coming to the front
very fast as tuo
youngster on John
McGraw"s staff of
second string play
ers. In fact, the
youth can hardly bo
classed as a substi
tute, because ne has
played in as many
games as some of
the regulars, and
has established himself as having abil
ity enough to hold his own with any
of the first string men.
It has been said, and with much
truth, that no team is any stronger
than its substitutes, and young Shafer
is an apt illustration of the reasonable
ness of the statement, Shafer can
play any infield position, with the
possible exception of first base, and
right up to big league class. He has
already filled in at short stop, -second
base and third base, and has been
equally good at all.
Shafer has all the requisites, men
tally and physically, to enable him to
develop into one of the stars of the
baseball firmament, He is.of the real
speedy kind that McGraw insists on
ir the selection of his new men. and
It was the youngster's sprinting quali
ties and natural aptitude for the sport
that appealed to the shrewd manager.
Shafer holds the amateur record of
the Pacific coast for 100 yards, and
that be is entitled to it, is shown al
most daily, when he dashes from first
to third on a hit to right field, or when
he beat out a bunt or slow infield
Is Lightning Fast.
He is lightning fast and. according
to the judgment of his fellow Giants,
can beat any player in either big
league as a sprint runner. His asso
ciates on the team are willing to back
him against the best any other club
can produce. It is possible that Shafer
will be entered in some of the baseball
sports next fall.
"When Shafer first joined the Gianta
in Marlin, Texas, he was a mere "kid."
That was three years ago. At that
time he was fresh from college, and
while he gave great promise from the
start, he could not be made to take
baseball seriously. He was a great
favorite with the other players on ac
count of his general liveliness and sky
larking proclivities, but they did not
appeal to McGraw, who in the training
camp is something of a martinet In
his Insistence on a strict training
But "Tillie" was kept, just the same,
when many other recruits were let go,
the manager knowing full well that the
oier exuberant youngster would tone
down in time and live up to the prom
ise he gave of becoming a great ball
During the winter of 1910-11 there
were rumors that Shafer was to be
sold, traded or exchanged to the Boston
National league club.
Boston AVnntcd Him.
Fred Tenney, then manager of the
Bostons, did try verv hard to secure
the speedy kid, but McGraw refused all
of Tenney's overtures. Fred had been

Shafer heard of the rumors that he
was to be shifted to Boston and imme
diately closed negotiations that had
been going on for him to coach a col
lege team of native players in Japan.
He and pitcher Thompson, who was
also once a Giant recruit, but discard
ed, went to Japan together and met
with great success in teaching the
Japs the American national game.
Shafer. although young in years, has
been called the "father of baseball in t
Japan, and is even now the recipient
of many letters from the players
whom he developed in faraway Nip
pon. Shafer had plenty of time to join
the Giants in the spring of 1911. had
he been so inclined, but he remained
in his home at Pasadena. Calif..
the entire season, being unwilling to
leave his mother, who was an invalid.
Now Is a New Boy.
This spring, though. Shafer was on
hand with the earliest of the recruits
and went at his training with surpris
ing eagerness, ambition and activity.
He was a changed boy.
From being out for pleasure alone as
seemed to be his exclusive bent- in
1910, he became one of the most con
scientious workers among the tryout
squad." He was even speedier than the
first year he reported. He had "filled

bases were amazing and he soon found
