Wildcat and Panther To Meet
When Mike Gibbons Meets Ferns
Both Fighters Have Met Some Corking Good Boys Billy Papke May Be
Barred From Future Ten Round Bouts Hughey Mehegen
Not Coming Over Soon.
By T. S. ANDREWS.
WIL be a clash between the -wild-
I cat and the panther when Mike Gib-
bons, the St- Paul marvel, and Clar
ence (Kid) Ferns, of Kansas City, meet
at Indianapolis. October 16. Ben Crose
and Ed Bingham, who are promoting
the match, write that the bout has been
sLrned un and that the boys are to so
ten rounds, weigh in at 145 pounds at,
3 oclock in the afternoon rne day oi me
fight. Ferns has not Deen before the
public a great while, but he has met
some corking good boys the past year
and has given such a good account of
himself that the Hoosier promoters did
iot hesitate to stack him up against
the toughest piece of fighting machin
ery in the country at the weight: that
is, the best of the boys at the poundage,
which is a trifle above the recognized
American welterweight limit. Hereto
fore the weight has been 142 pounds at
3 oclock or 145 ringside, so that they
cannot claim It is the championship
weight. Ferns in all of his bouts has
also displayed considerable cleverness.
In his bout with Ray Bronson he
showed great speed and hitting pow
ers that reminded Ray of a mule
kicking, and there are few who can
take a punch like Bronson and come
back for more. Therefore It will bring
together the slugger and the clever
man, whioh combination always results
In a great battle. These combinations
always bring about the kind of fights
tnat set a crowd crazy with excitement,
and if Ferns follows his former tactics
lie vrll make the speedy Mike move
at a clip that will startle the Hoosier
fans. Gibbons says he can make the
weight all right and be strong, which
will again prove that alike is not the
big middleweight that some people
claim, although it -will still be evident
that he is at his best around 150
pounds, at which weight he fought
most of his battles In the east.
The IndianaDOlis promoters will try
to match up the winner with Ray Bron
son, but as there will be no decision
given they will depend upon the usual
popular verdict to select their man.
Bronson and Ferns for a return match
would be real contenders for the wel
terweight title; in fact, Bronson has
claimed it and has been defending It
against all comers at the American lim
it of 142 pounds. That weight also
Bults Ferns to a nicety and the chances
are that his manager, Jimmy Hurst,
will be tickled to sign up under those
conditions. Jimmy Clabby relinquished
his claim to the welterweight title a
vear ago when he found his weight
above the limit and be advanced into
he middleweight division.
The action of Billy Papke, the for
tner middleweight champion, in refus
ing to meet Frank Mantell before the
New Star A. C. in New York the other
night because, as the club claimed,
there was not 'sufficient coin in sight
to satisfy the Illinois Thunderbolt, may
cause his disbarment (fom all boxing
clubs in New York state. Papke had
been matched to box Mantell ten rounds
and never a word was said until he
got into the clubhouse and saw the
crowd. Then he suddenly changed his
mind and refused to go on. Later it
was said he hurt his hand getting out
of thp automobile, but the club officials

Many Homeruns Made By Giants
During the Season Just Ended
WHEN the Giants and the White
Elephants battled last fall for
the championship of the
world, J. Franklin Baker, with' his
home run wallops, decided which team
should draw down the big end of the
prize money. The best known citizen of
Trappe. Mi, will not have a chance to
participate in the contests for the
world's title which started today, and it
is possible that the coming series- may
develop a home run hero on the other
side of the major league horizon. Mc
Graw certainly has on his team several
persons who have made it a habit to
insert four-bagggers just at the psycho
logical moment "Chief Meyers's first
assistant in the backstopping depart
bent Arthur Wilson has hit for the
grand tour thrice this season and every
time he has done so his clout has meant

my Gardner and Jack Dougherty. It
was apparently a fine match. The
boys were to get a straight purse, with
Gardner having a guarantee. "When the
time came for the boys to start Tim
Coughlin (now dead) president of the
club, came to the writer, who was also
interested, and said: "We are just ?9S0
shy. What will we do?"
The fact is, there were all the old
regulars on hand 'and a fair house, but
the loss was there Just the same. It
was suggested that we take our medi
cine and give the show.
"That suits me all right," said Tim.
"but there is one thing l insist on, and
that is, that we bar all the doors and
let us enjoy the show for once. I
haven't seen a whole show in years."
The result was that the doors were
closed and Tim Coughlin and the
writer occupied a box all alone, to tbe
tune of ?9S0, and it was some show,
too, foe Gardner and Dougherty put up
a crackerjack of a bout; in fact so
good that; they were matched again
later on and made up for the first loss.
I must give Jimmy Gardner credit for
his action that night Jimmy offered
to forego his guarantee and take his
chance, which he knew would be a
loss, but the club did not ask it and
paid him his price and took the loss.
From information at hand it is not
likely that we will have a chance t
see Hughey Mehegan, the Australian
champion, in action here before the
year 1913 sets in. It was expected
that the Australian lightweight cham
pion would set sail for the states after
his match with Matt Wells, but I am in
receipt of a letter from his friend and
advisor to the effect that he has some
good matches in sight in London and
will remain there for a while. He has
been offered ' big money for another
match with Matt Wells, the British
title- holder, the latter not being satis
fied with the way he lost on a foul to
Mehegan in their recent bout Wells
and Freddy Welsh were matched some
time aco and a title contest and as
soon as they are through Mehegan will
meet the -winner. In the meantime he
will probably be matched with Jack
Ward, another challenger for the Brit
ish championship. Hughey has been
the recipient of repeated offers from
Huh Mcintosh to return to his -native
land and meet some of the Americans
vho are therf now, among them Grover
Hayes, the Chicago 133 pounder. Cluus
In the states have also offered Mehe
gan good Inducements to come hero
to meet Ad Wolgast the champion,
also other stars in that class, so that
it will take a bit of thinking for the
Australian to make up his mind just
what to do. From the present outlook
Huehev will remain in England until
after the Chrlsmas holidays, after,
which he will start for home, ifr-STl

and have everyone disgusted with their

Jim Corbett's fame is at last fixed.
Jack Johnson has announced that he Is
the greatest scientific fighter the
world has known, meaning Corbett
and not himself. The : egro qualifies
it by saying that Corbett is the great
est fighter, which leaves "black man
Jack" is the king of the pugs in all de
partments, according to his estimate.
When Johnson heard that his old time
verbal opponent was ill in a Philadel
phia hospital he rushed into the near

eulogy of Corbett which ralrly dripped
with honeyed phrases and affection.
Johnson all but admitted that Corbett
was the best of the ages and had It
not been for his own shiny self, he
would have admitted it right out in

as the cleanest, cleverest gamest

Boston rooters, the "Royal rooters"
they call themselves, have let out one
long wail which "was not a eheer for

either. The Boston fans and all others
outside of New York, claim that they
are being discriminated against by
New York and that only the New York
baseball crowd can get anything but
the most undesirable seats in the Polo
grounds. This is not as it should be
for the outside followers of the game
have as much right to choice seats as
the Broadway crowd, regardless of
what this same New York bunch think
of it The sun may rise and set in
New York, but the outside world is
entitled to a look in during this world
series, and it is obviously unfair for
the New Yorkers to discriminate
against the outsiders, especially Boston.
Suppose Boston would do the same
th'ng when the crowd goes down there
to see the second game of the series.
What a howl there would be from little
old New York.

ton a championship. But there are
other players who were a bfg help to
Stahl in his pennant fight and their
services in the present struggle will
be just as valuable, although their
names are not mentioned as often.
Not the least of these Is Charley Wag
ner, a former Giant player.
Without the aid of the veteran
shortstop the Sox might never have
won the gonfalon. Jimmy McAleer
admits as much.
In speaking about his team's suc
cess, McAleer states plainly that it
was due to the work of Wagner as
much as anything else that made them
champions. "We started out with
practically the same team that fin
ished last season," says the Boston
I magnate, "with the exception tnat
Jake Stahl returneo to tne game anu
Heine Wagner 'came back.' With
these two positions filled and all the
rest of the boys just reaching their
stride we simply had to win."
Ty Cobb also praises the veteran
Infielder, and in discussing the Red
Sox gives it as his opinion that Wag
ner deserves more credit than any
other player for the showing the
team made in this year's race.
Wagner "Came Back."
Last season Wagner was a storm
center of the team. JFor years regard
ed as one of the best shortstops in
the. American league, his work fell off
because of injury and being shifted
in position as well as uncertainty as

club nest year. .
Bob Hoffman, me of the best ends
on the Illinois squad, has quit the
game. Reasonf Parental objection.
Joe Finneran, the former hurdler
and sprinter, has been engaged to
coach the Yale track team, because of
the absence of coach John, Mack,
who is busy as trainer of the football
squad. Finneran and captain Wagner
have already sent candidates to work.
Dr. Woodbine, of the faculty, has
