Jack Eritton, Of Chicago, Is
Making Good As A Lightweight
"Kid" Williams Not Missing Any Chances to Add to His Record and Really
Seems Like a Candidate for Johnny Coulon's Honors Jack
Lester a Failure as "a White Hope."
By T. S. ANDREWS. :
JACK BRITTOX, the Chicago lad who
Bill Phelon first chased into a. ring1,
has been making- rapid progress as
a lightweight star of late and there is
no reason why he should not be glren
a chance at the crown worn by1 Ad
WoJgast. Britton left the coast last
summer and made for New York where
he looked the ground OTer and decided
that he had better make for Australia!
Jack signed a contract to go to the
Antipodes under the care of Hugh Mc
intosh and was ready to sail in Sep
tember, but there came a chance fora
bout in Boston, which he won, and this
was followed with more offers; in fact,
so many offers appeared that he forgot
about the land of the Kangaroo and
remained in the east. Whether Jack
intends to fulfill his contract with Mc
intosh remains to be seen, but it is a
good bet that he will not leave while
the 10 round bouts come so frequently.
And with a match in sight for the
championship it will be doubly hard
for the young man to think of leaving.
Jack wants to get a match withTack
ey HcFarland first and then, if he can
win, go after Wolgast. His win over
Jack Redmond, of Milwaukee, in New
York this week showed that he is get
ting what everyone said he lacked
a punch for he put Jack down for the
count of nine and Jack is a pretty
tough nut to put down for that length
"Kid" Williams, who I have tipped
many timeB of late as a likely candi
date for Johnny Coulon's title, is not
missing any chances of late to add to
his record. He has been fighting regu
farly and has not been picking easy
fnarks, either. The Kid bumped up
against a tough youngster in Young
Diggins at Philadelphia, but the Balti
more boy won all the way and had
plenty to spare at the end of the bout.
Williams is training hard for his com
ing match with Coulon, which is billed
for New York, October 18, and It prom
ises to be a treat for Billy Gibson's
patrons. Williams has what nearly ev
ery other opponent of Coulon's lacked
the knockout punch. Johnny Is train
ing harder than ever, for he Is taking
no chances, having been warned by
eastern friends to get in the best
shape for the match. The little Chi
cago wonder has been taking life easy
all summer and doing plenty of rough-
work outside, so that he will be In bet
ter physical condition than when he
fought Frankie Burns and" Harry
Forbes last winter. Johnny will be
kept busy with high class opponents
If he accepts all the challenges, for
there are several after him, including
the Frenchman, Charlie Lredoux, John
ny Hughes, Eddie Morgan and Digger
Stanley, all high class boys of Eng
land, and Frankle'-Burns hankering for
Jack Lester, who was sent over to
Australia by Tommy Burns as the Teal
"white hope," has proved a frost in
Kangarooland. Jack was beaten by
several heavyweights and also whipped
by Cyclone Johnny Thompson, but his
latest defeat is at the hands of Bill
Turner, an Australian heavyweight,
who has only a fair reputation. Turner
knocked out Lester in eight rounds
after a hard battle, Lester showing lit
tle Inclination to fight when he had a
chance to clinch. The Lester patry lost
heavily by backings their man. Turner
rushed continuously and It the eighth
put over a right cross to the jaw which
put the American dpwn for 15 seconds.
The fight took place at Hobart, in Tas
mania, and was scheduled to go 20
rounds. Turner is now after a match
-with- Bill Lang, the Australian, who
fought Al Kaufman in Philadelphia
over a year ago, as Bill Is back in the
"The Dixie Kid." who used to fight
around Memphis and Boston, before
going to England and France, has got
himself "In bad" on the other side by
alleged attempts to fake matches. He
has been under a cloud for some time
and has found it hard to get matches,
even In Paris, where he was quite afa
Torite at one time when Charlie Galvin
had him in tow. He claimed the wel
terweight title, but no one ever gavo
him credit for it, as Jimmy Clabby had
beaten his head off in the states before
he went away and Clabby was the real
holder of the crown at that time. Dixie
has discovered that the straight path
is the best and now he offers to fight
any welterweight in Europe at 142 or
147 pounds, that being the English
weight, and if the fight Is not on the
square he does not -want a penny. At
the present time the two boys entitled
to the most credit for the welterweight
championship at 142 pounds are Ray
Bronson, the Indianapolis boy, and
Clarence Ferns, of Kansas City, known
as the Kansas Wildcat. Bronson has
fought Ferns and the result was a
draw, and as the Hoosier was the first
to claim the title and also defend it,
he is certainly entitled to the crown
as much as any one. Therefore let
Bronson and Ferns fight It out as to
who is the real possessor of the title.
A 20 round contest between them
would be a match worth a lot of money
to any club.
Petitions have been circulated
through the state of Wisconsin on the
boxing question. The fans are clam
oring for boxing and the promoters
have got out petitions with the ob
ject in view of voicing the sentiment
of the people regarding the same. It is
expected that in this way over 50.000
names will be .attached to the petitions
so that when the legislature convenes
and a bill is presented for considera
tion the members of the legislative
bodies will have something to guide
them. "Three "years ago a bill passed
the Wisconsin legislature," in both
houses, but was held up by the govern
or at that time, Mr. Davidson, after he
had promised to sign it.

New York. N. Y., Oct 3. For failing
to keep his contract to box 10 rounds
with Frank Mantell, of Providence be
fore the New York Athletic club in this
city, Billy Papke, of Kewanee, I1L, was
suspended for an indefinite period by
the New York state athletic commis

permitted to box in New York state un
till reinstated. Also it may have the
effect of cancelling his match with the
French chamnion. as the following ca

"Paul Rosseau, French Federation of

NEW YORK, N. Y., Oct 3. Charles
Ebbetts, of -the Brooklyn base
ball club, will suggest to the
National commission a new plan for
drafting players from the class AA
league. Ebbetts says the present plan
is unfair to club owners who are In
need of raw material. Speaking of his
new proposition, he said:
"I have given the matter much care
ful thought lately and I believe I've
hit upon a scheme that will meet with
general favor. There are 16 major
league clubs. Let the, American
league, for instance, take the odd num
bers, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15 for each
club, while the National league clubs
are numbered 2, i, 6, S, 10, 12, 14 and
16. Assign these numbers in accord
ance with the order in which the teams
in each league finish at the end of each
Give No. 15 and No." 14, the tailend
clubs, first chance at all the players
subject to draft If No. 15 needs a
shortston and a first baseman, the
entire field Is open to choice. If No. 16
wants a catcher, second baseman and
a lett fielder, the same privilege Is ex
The second drawing I3 allotted to
No. 13 and No. .14, and so on up to the
top., In that way each team will have
an excellent chance to secure desirable
talent and will not be compelled to
take players that really are not needed.
To use a few illustrations with names
the Boston Nationals, tailenders, need
a first baseman, a shortstop, a pitcher,
and perhaps a catcher. "Under my plan
president Gaffney at the recent draft
ing session might have landed catcher
Schang, of Buffalo, a prize; shortstop
Derrick, of Baltimore; pitcher Powell,
of Kansas City, and third baseman
Dolan, of Rochester, all of whom would
have strengthened this team. The
Highlanders, too, could have picked up
players of more value to them than to
the other big clubs that got them. I
maintain' that clubs like the Giants.
Red Sox, Cubs, Pirates, Athletics and
"White Sox should stand aside while the
weaker teams have first crack at de
sirable playing talent
"The player end of It Is Illustrated
by many cases. Take the case of
catcher Wells, of Jersey City, for in
stance. Wells came near being sold
to the White Sox for $6000; also "to
the Clevelands for less. He was men
tioned several times in the list of ten
tative drafts, but when the names
came out of the hat catcher Rondeau
of the same team got into the major
league class, while Wells was lost in
the shuffle. Wells is a fine catcher,
capable enough to play in fast com
pany, but under existing conditions
his ambition cannot be realized. If he
is disgruntled he cannot be blamed.
I intend to make a suggestion on
these lines to the commission and the
major leagues in December, and I be
lieve I will" receive much encouragement"

Such odds, however, are an excep

World's Series In the Past Have
Exploded Baseball Theories
Modest Player of a Season's Race Sometimes Becomes a Hero When a Hit
and Run Are Needed to Win a World's Series Game.
By TED SULLIVAN.
THE coming world's baseball series
between Boston and New York
is bringing up discussions of the
merits of both leagues and teams and
what they will do in the coming race.
What a team and players will cVd in a
six months' race and what they will
do in a seven games' race no one
knows, but possibly a clairvoyant
Every new world's series has ex
ploded the theories and sophistry of
the past The batting hero and a
pitching hero of a long schedule some
times utterly falls in a crucial series
of seven games where the friction of
the game is intense and the tension
high. The modest player of the sea
son's race sometimes becomes the hero
In those world's series contests. Ba
ker's batting of the Athletics demon
strated this assertion last year. You
cannot weigh the quality of a diamond,
any more than you can weigh the nerve
and gameness of a player when it is
put up to him in a short world's series.
It makes quite a difference when a
player has six months to make a base
hit and to make one that counts in one
of those games when it means either
the winning or the losing of the game.
First World Series.
The first world's series In 1884 be
tween the champion Providence club
of the National league and the Metro
politans, of New York, champions of
the American association, when the
series was set at five games, showed
pitching skill on the part Of Rad
bourne, pitcher of the Providence club,
that-had no parallel before. He pitched
the first three consecutive games,
which took three consecutive days, and
in each of those games did the Met
ropolitan team make less base hits,
and the record states that In those
three games, not one of the Metropoli
tan players got a base on balls.
Harper, pitcher of fair ability of the
Pittsburg club, became the pitching
hero of the world's series between De
troit and Pittsburg fn 1909. The great
world's series of 18S6, between the
great Chicago club under Anson and
the St Louis Browns under Charles
Comiskey where the entire gate re
ceipts went to the winners exploded
other theories of supposed baseball su
periority In those contests of seven
games. In that great battle between
those clubs the Browns did not match
with the great Chicago club In me
chanical baseball speed, yet they de
feated the Anson club by the baseball
genius of Comiskey and the gameness
of those fleet footed Browns.
The Chicago Cubs defeated the De
alnrost consecutive games. In the first
game of the first series between De
troit and Chicago, the lack of temerity
on the part of the Detroit catcher In
the first game where the Detroit club
had the Chicago team beaten in the
ninth inning with two out and two
strikes on the batter, lost that game
trolt team in every world's series in
to Detroit which seemed ever after
ward to have a "hoo-doo" effect on
the great Detroit team in playing
against the Cubs. It can be most log
ically said that the longer a man is in
the practical machinery of baseball,
the les3 he" knows about it for the
reason that the uncertainty of the
game in general and particularly in a.
world's series makes a wise man un
wise on the outcome of-some of those
world's series contests.
I want to state to the " American
baseball public, and I say it from the
position of a man who has been one of
the builders of the game, that those
world's series contests from '84 down
have been honest and straight The
outcome of these great world's con
tetss have shattered the theories of
those skeptics of honest baseball in as
many pieces as Buffalo Bill does the
glass balls with his rifle and I want
to pay a further tribute to the expo
nents of the national game that there
is no class of men in any profession
where" temptations and laudations are
heaped upon them that compares with
them in sobriety and thrift I say
this In the face of what I hear about
drinking of men in the baseball profes
sion. If the Chicago Cubs, as out
siders claim, are indulging in alcoholic
spirits, then their "winning of pennants
and world's pennants for the last five
or six years Is the worst recommen
dation for the temperance ball player
ever known and a great boost for the
players who Indulge in spiritous beverages.
