Last Strike As
Pilot ef tle Beaton Taileaders Has Converted Any Humber of Joke Clubs Into
; BY W. J. MacBETH.
rEW YORK. N. T.. Jan. 4. Three
strikes and out. is one of the
J- nrincifud rules of baseball. But
;h last strike is far more important
than either of the two preceding ones

i hem Some first ball hitters are as
good as nailed up the minute a pitcher
gets two strikes on them. Other free
hitters like Ty Cobb. Hans "Wagner or

is liable to step up on one and clout it

Which little preamble has no reference
whatever to any Cobb or Wagner or

whether or not the "Big Chief fans, a.
humiliation he has never yet suffered
in his 20 years of baseball.
A Hard Proportion.
Some pretty wise baseball men will
be mightily surprised if Chief Stall
mgs makes a failure of 1U as skipper
of the Hub trailers. It is true that he
is up against a rather blue outlook for
the immediate future but he could be
situated worse and not have to travel
out of his own circuit. His lot should
be easier than that of any one of three
new rival managers Johnny Evers,
Joe Tinker and Miller Huggins.
Tinker and Evers have something to
work with at the start for they take
the helm of Jirst division clubs. Miller
Huggins. who succeedp Bresnahan. has
a club that ranked sixth in a flight of
-ight But Stallings takes hold of an
absolute ruck runner. He cannot pos
sibly do worse than his predecessors
and any improvement in the final
standing of his glub will redound to his
credit. , . ,,.
In his long experience Stallmgs never
et has been at the head of any joke

long He has converted anv number
of jokes into real classy aggregations.
In 20 years he has never finished worse
than fifth in any company and has had

one is willing to concede that the Big
Chief is a minor league marvel. They
will not go so far when a question of
big league class dobs up.
Record Stands For Itself.
The only wav to judge a man is by
his record. Let Stallings's record
speak for itself. Stallings took hold
of the New Tork Americans in the
spring of 1909. The previous year, un
der the direction of Clark Griffith and
Kid Elberfeld, a sorry mess indeed had
been made. Grift, broken hearted,
threw up the sponge in mid-season.
The team started out like a world's
champion, stumbled, collapsed and
finished the most horribly out-distanced
last ever seen in the American league.
It was a far more discouraging season
than the Wolverton regime of sad
memory for some of Harry's woes may
be laid to the most persecuting train
of hard luck known to the game.
Well Stallings took hold of that ter
rible wreck of 1908. Frank Farrell had
absolutely no outside resources. He had
just one claim in the minor' league, an
option to pick from the Atlanta team.
That option brought Russell Ford to
the Hilltop. Bv dint of scheming and
hard work Stallings gathered together,
little by little, some sort of half way
decent representatives. Cree. Warhop,
Engle, Gardner, Austin, Laporte, Quinn.
McConnell and a number of others that
escape memory were added imme
diately. Though the team was harrassed
by the unfortunate attack of smallpox
upon Hal Chase such an improvement
was made the first year that Stallings
was barely nosed out of the first di
vision. He finished a good fifth. The
next year Fisher. Caldwell. Wolter and
Daniels were snared. Again the Stall
ings aggregation was buffeted about
by sickness and injury and though the
"Big Chief was dropped like a live
coal three weeks before the end of the
season the team finished a bang-up sec
ond, right in the hunt till the last
three weeks. That is the first year the
Athletics made a show of the field.
Sent Back to the Minors..
Stallings, almost broken Hearted,
went back to the minors for the second
time from the American league. Ban
Johnson willed it: Ban is absolute in
his bailiwick. Once before he had put
the ban upon the Georgia planter. That
was some 10 years ago after Stallings
had taken the erratic Tigers of Detroit
to second place in a whipping drive
Ban believed or imagined that George
was trving to sell, out the American
league. He never forgave him; if he
has no one has learned of it.
They do say that Ban Johnson forced
NQWS CO. 1C6
Farrell to get rid of Stallings. Frank
signed the "Big Chief to a two years'
contract without consulting the czar
He didn't know that Stallings stood so
badly in the graces of the big "poo
ban.'1 So Stallings has taken two strikes as
a major league manager. He's back
there 'again at the plate with a new
bat, a new umpire and against a new
kind of pitching. Tom Lynch, "the
king of umpires" admires the ability
of Stallings. George will get none
the worst of the decisions. If he
whiffs it will be his own fault. He
will have lots of opportunity to foul
off a lot anyhow for he has a five years'
contract if .contracts are any good in
the National league.
Owner Encourages Pilot.
Stallings lias a host of friends in the
game and out of the game and all-are
pulling for the Success of his third
dip into the big show. They are pull
iner no less for him than for Jim Gaff-
l ney, his employer. There is a sports
man, unnappny too lew among me
magnates of toda A prince of good
fellows. Gaffney will lend every en
couragenient to his pilot. He is no tin
horn who wishes to run a shoestring
into a million in no time. Jim Gaffney
expressed his modest hopes in a man
ner that spoke the man during the
annual meeting of the National league
in New York recently. Some friend
expressed the hope that he would be
up among the leaders the coming year.
"Now listen." renlied Mr. Gaffney. "I
j am not foolish enough to expect a
pennant winner or even a iirsi uivimun
club the first year. I will be quite
satisfied to improve our present condi
tion. Seventh place is far more honor
able than last place. If we should by
any good fortune finish as well as
sixth I would be the happiest man in
baseball. I have every confidence in
George Stallings and will tender him
even- aid in the uplift of the team,
which I realize must be slow. But no
matter where we may finish I would
not dispose of the Boston franchise for
double what I paid. I am out to give
the town a winner and I think I can
do it with Stalllngs's aid. We're not
going to shoot at the moon. w e re
going to rebuild from the bottom. And
in time well. I think there will be
more than one worthy baseball club in
And everyone who knows Gaffney and
Stallings sincerely- says: "Amen."

New-Weights May Bring New Champions
Battlers Would Soon Adopt Standard if Prise Belts Are Offered by Commis

By J. W. NATJGHTON.
SAN FRANCISCO., CALIF., Jan. 4.
The New York Boxing commis
sion's revised schedule of weights
is causing lots of argument and that
in itself is a hopeful sign. Now. if
England or France or Australia will
refrain from submitting a somewhat
different classification the boxing cen
ters of the world may be able to adopt
a common schedule, something they
have never been able to do up to the
The trouble with these things is
that whenever anyone submits a new
list some one else is ready with one
that it is claimed is ever so much bet
ter and, after a little desultory dis
cussion the older order of things goes
Fighters Offer Objection.
As a matter of fact the New York
schedule is nothing new. The weight
limits mentioned have been suggested
over and over again during the past
dozen years but never adopted for
the reason that there was no commis
sion anywhere to take the matter up.
Now that a duly constituted body in
control of boxing has taken the ini
tiative in the matter there Is good
prospect of universal adoption.
Of course, there will be objections
to the extension of the boundary line
in -some of the classes and needless
to say these will come from champions
who wish, for personal reasons, to con
tinue along old lines.
Already one promoter has saiu:
"What is the use of a standard of
weights if a world's champion insists
upon all his opponents, coming to a
notch that is a couple of pounds be
low the official scale?"
Well if a world's champion becomes
hoity-toity, in the direction named it
will be hard to discipline him at least
until the new schedule has world
wide adoption and support. But so
far as this country Is concerned there
is no way in which the , New York
Athletic commission can exert its' au
thority. i Prize Ilcltx For Champs.
Taking as the basis of argument that
the New York commission is the only
committee in this country bearing any
semblance to a parent bpdy and that
there is an 'inclination in other cities

from the state revenue derived from
boxing, which is said to be consid

NEW YORK BOXING RULES
TIE HANDS OF REFEREE
NEW YORK, N. Y., Jan. 4. In the
set of "new" rules promulgated
by the New York State Athletic
commission last week a number of com
paratively unimportant features are in
troduced, while certain crying needs
of the sport are entirely overlooked.
The rules are just what should be
expected from a collaboration by the
two men directly opposite in their
views of how boxing should be con
ducted and are a great disappointment
to those who have the interests of the
sport at heart. ..... t.
Commissioner O'Neil, to give him
credit due, realizes that professional
boxing is no parlor game and is anxious
to govern the sport accordingly. Ma.
Dixon his associate, is apparently In
fluenced very much by his experience
In amateur sport with which he has
long been identified.
There are several paragraphs out
ling the duties of the referee, but after
reading them through carefully one
wonders why a referee at all. The job
calls for nothing in the way of knowl
edge of boxing or experience in any
capacity with the sport. A clerk from
the ribbon counter who had never wit
nessed a bout could perform the du
ties assigned to the third man in the
" i.ie rules lie a referee's hands so
effectually tiiat he scarcely has more
authority than the average spectator.
In fact, as I understand them, the only
authority vested in him is the power to
stop a bout when it is so one-sided as
to be obvious to everybody present. He
is not eren allowed to disqualify a
foul fighter. There is not a line to
govern his actions in such a. con
tingency. And as for having the ref
erees render decisions that would be
playing right into the hands of the
horrid gamblers and too terrible to
The commission has also undertaken
the regulation of weights in the dif
ferent classes and to help out matters
has created two new divisions or
classes paperweight and commission
weight the former to be limited to 10a
pounds' and the latter (a new name
for the light-heavies) set at 175
This is in accordance with a request
made, it is said, by the ring authorities
of England and France to assist in com
piling an international scale to govern
the various divisions.
This is a step in the rigHt direction
and anv movement that has as Its ob
ject the establishment of worldwide
standard should be supported. Still New
York state is not the entire IT. S. A.
and it strikes me that those interested
In the sport in other boxing centers
of the country should have been con
sulted upon such an important matter
as revision of weights, before the com
mission submitted the new scale to
, medals or other insignia Indicative of
These trophies need not be expen
sive, but you can bet your life they
would be prized once the commission
let it be known that no championship
would be complete without one.
These championship belts or badges
or whatever they are, would have Jo
be worn in contests in which the new
weights were abided by and they
would, for obvious reasons, be simply
emblematic of the boxing champion
ships of the United States. It is not
to be supposed that New York would
care to furnish regalia for king pin
boxers among all nations.
It may be that New York would be
in a better position to inaugurate a
movement of the kind mentioned if it
would"amend its boxing law so as to
have boxing matches passed upon by a
referee. Then the big city itself no
doubt would be the scene of the great
est of the championship events.

What a flutter there will be among
the front row men in the lightweight
division if it is decided that the" high
water mark of the class will be 135
pounds instead of 133 in the future.
Already Ad Wolgast. who seems to
think that he is merely away from his
championship stronghold on vacation
has "let out a yell" that might have
been heard on the Atlantic seaboard.
It can be seen at a glance that if Wol
gast is restored to power he will -insist
on doing business at the old 133 pound
standard. New York or no New York.
As for Willie Ritchie, he is such a
pleasant mannered, mild spoken fellow
that there is no telling how the two
pounds uplift appeals to him. A little
bird whispered though, that Willie will
take very kindly to the extra weight
even though he may make it appear
while doing so that he is merely con
senting to the extension out of cour
tesy to the men of the commission back
Packey McFariand will certainly re
joice in his heart if the new schedule
takes root, for a bare two pounds has
kept Packey out of the lightweight
lists for years. Jack Britton will also
come under the head of "new light
weights" and there are others, no
It is a notorious fact that while
there is no apparent reason why there
shouldn't be as many 133 pound men as
135 pound men. the number of genuine
133 pounders at any time since glove
fighting began has been remarkab.y
Are Introduced While Important Needs of
the ring authorities of foreign coun
tries for approval.
The moat radical changes in weights
in the New York scale are made in the
smaller divisions. It is more difficult
task for the average bantam weight
to concede one pound than for a
heavyweight to give away ten times
as much. Yet the local body had
widened the breach between two of
the smallest classes by increasing the
limit in the featherweight class to 125
and reducing the bantam limit to 115.
From this it is evident that the com
missioners have a great deal to learn
about classfying boxers according to
Sam Langford will have to come back
home now and to Joe Jeannette. He
played his last string out in Australia
when he put Sam McVey away in 13
rounds and now it's a case of home.
McVey was a good meal ticket while
he lasted, and the pair fattened finan
cially on the proceeds of no less than
five battles before superiority was
satisfactorily settled by the knock
out. Just a year ago the two Sams met
for the first time in Sydney and McVey
was awarded the decision after 20
hard rounds. The battle had beeli
billed for the "championship" of the
world, as it was thought at the time
that Jack Johnson had quit the game
for good, and when the California
negro copped the verdict the Aus
tralians proclaimed him the "champ."
As an illustration of the value a
clever manager Is to a fighter. McVey's
case is cited. Langford left this coun
try rated second only to Johnson and
many were of the opinion that he
could have beaten the larger negro if
given the chance. When McVey
"copped" the decision he had the
chance of a lifetime to gather some
big money and to gather it fast. A.
manager "onto his job" would have
taken McVey back to America by first
boat, where he could have booked at
least a year's theatrical engagements
on the strength of the victory over
the sensational Boston negro. Fur
thermore. McVey would have been in
position to challenge Johnson and the
papers would have forced him to make
the match or quit
I understand that Langford has
split with manager Joe Woodman and
will shortly sail for this country to
challenge Johnson and the white
heavyweights. Nothing is said about
Jeannette, but Sam will first have to
make good against Joseph, who has
been patiently awaiting Sambo's re
turn. It will be recalled that the boys
were matched over a year ago by Tom

to see him against Luther McCartv

both were green as grass, but big Wil
lard had a bit the better of the argu

that Kearns beat him with a "luck "
