St Louis Fans Plan "Bresnahan Day"
Royal Roger Rooters "Will Be Out in Force When Former Cardinal Manager
Plays with Cubs Against His Old Team Jinx Stays With Club Owner.

ST. IXHJIS, Mo, Jan. 22. 'Bresna

fans, a diamond or two and other
eclat, will be celbrated at Robison
Field when the Chicago Cubs cali for
their first 1913 collision with the Car

"Count" Henry Hoffnwnn, the world's
champion rooter, who, single handed,

worker when there's a benefit for ball
players on the books. He glories In
buying precious stones and presenting
them to the downtrodden athlete who

Caught in the act of accepting a sub
scription for the Bresnahan fund, Hoff
"When I'm for a guy I'm for him
strong. I'm a friend of Rogers', so
he's a friend of mine. And I'm going
to give him the biggest send-off he
ever received on the diamond. When
the Cubs cor. o here for their first
game next April we'll give Roger one
of the nicest presents he ever got.
Something big probably a diamond.
Never A Rain for Hoffmann.
"We'll have music and the Royal

and screeches and a riotous reception
for the greatest living catcher. I In

turns for the first time with the Cubs.
After I give him his present and show
him how he stands with the St. Louis

Former Bantamweight Champion Will
Meet. Kid Payo Frank Fouser Will
Meet Solly Barns, of Los Angeles.
A fight card is being ribbed for next
Wednesday night at the El Paso thea
ter, when the El Paso Amateur Athletic
club will have its opening. Frankie
Conley, former bantamweight cham
pion until he ran foul of Johnnie Cou
lon's fist, will be the big act and will
go over the short course in a friendly
bout with Kid Payo, the postoffice pug,
who knows how to use his mitts. Payo
has defeated the other aspirants for
fight honors hereabouts and, while he
does not expect a decision over Conley.
he will take care of his corner of the
ring against even the ex-champ. Solly
Burns, Los Angeles lightweight, is also
matfihed to spar four Tounds with
Frank Fouser, the blacksmith "battler,
who fights between shoeing horses in
an Overland street shop. Burns has
defeated Battling George, Louis Reese
and other likely fighters and is well
thought of on the Barbary coast. Two
other fighters from the fort will ap
pear in the preliminary program. Kid
Rossins. of the 22d infantry and Sergt.
Cole, also a fighter at the fort, will
fight at 150 pounds.
Conley came into town the other day
as modestly as if he naa never worn
the champ, crown and defeated Monte
Attell. His trainer. Will Champion, is
a welcome exception to the usual fight
manager, for he does not carry a cane
and tell what a wonder his boys are.
Conley and Burns are getting down to
work at a local gym and will give a
fast exhibition for their part of the

THE EXIT OF
Tales Told At
By W. A.
; i-kETER JOHNSON, featherweight, was quite an earnest little battler round
I Jf the middle west some 18 years ago. He wasn't exactly a star, but he was
. "- vastly popular, and was given many bouts in many cities. Johnson's genial
I face and charming grin seemed to melt the stony hearts of the promoters and win
the constant friendship of the fans. No matter what might happen to him,
glorious victory or a sudden finish lie could always come back, and the populace
would turn out to cheer him.
One night George Dixon came to town, and sought action on all and any of
the local boys who might oppose, him. Peter Johnson, who was now rather near
the slope of Hasbeen Hill, but still retained much popularity, was urged to go forth
and seek war with Mr. Dixon. After much cogitation, Mr. Johnson agreed to en
counter Little Chocolate four rounds, Dixon to stop the aging but frisky Johnson,
and Mr. Johnson to receive $100 if he wasn't stopped. In his heart of hearty
Johnson felt that his chance of getting out alive was an extremely slim one. Even
in Ms niftiest days, he had never approached the Dixon fighting standard, and now
with gray showing in his hair, what show had he to stick four rounds with the
But there was craft in the head of Johnson craft and guile. As the gong rang
for the first round, he walked out, seized the hand of Mr. Dixon, and retained it
firmly, speaking meanwhile in honeyed words.
"Mr. Dixon," said he, "I'm proud to shake the hand of a real champion."
Mr. Dixon returned the friendly grasp. "Mistah Johnsing," smiled he, "Ah
'predate yo' admiration. Yo'se evidently one good fellow."
knd they sparred tor a minute, Dixon being too full of kindliness to land a
hard one. Finally Little Chocolate rushed and swung. Johnson dodged, clinched,
and remarked in Dixon's ear: "They tipped me right about you, Dixon. You are
certainly the grandest little fighter of them all."
"Thanks fo' them kind words, Mistah Johnsing," beamed Dixon, and Pete I
slipped away unstung. The end of the round was near, and by ducking and foot
work Peter escaped destruction.
When they came out for the second round, Johnson again grasped the negro's
hand. "Never, Dixon," said he, "have I met so gentlemanly a fighter. It's a real
pleasure to box with you."
"Yo's all right, Mistah Johnsing," grinned the champion. "Yo', also, am a
gemman an' a scholar."
Towards the end of this round the going grew stormy. As they reeled along
the ropes, Mr. Johnson squeaked, hurriedly: "Your right hand is a great deal
larger than the left, isn't it, Dixon?" And Dixon, stopping the attack, glanced at
his glove-shod paws. "Ah, nevah noticed, Mistah Johnsing," said he, perplexedly.
"But puhhaps it's so. Ah'm right handed, so Ah spose de right one done develop
biggest." And the gong rang. They came out in the third, and Johnson was see
ing golden visions of fame, plus 100. "Mr. Dixon," he whispered, side-stepping a
left hook, "you are, indeed, a peerless champion, the wonder of the world."
Dixon halted, and a sudden light of comprehension came across his counte
nance. "Mistah Johnsing," hissed he, "you done almos' mek me f ohget dat ah's got
knuckles on dese hands. Ah jest done recommember it right now."
F. Johnson is now a prosperous hackman in the quiet town of Cincinnati.
Fans Will Follow Chance To Training Camp
Peerless Leader Wants the Yankees to Be Officially Known as the "New

By DAMON RUNYON.
NEW YORK, Jan. 22. Many local
fans are planning pleasure trips
to Bermuda when the Yankees

familiar with the climate of the islands

short space of time this winter, which
practically revolutionized' tho local
The first and most important, ot
course, was the signing of Frank

any man in baseball; a. move that is
almost certain to put Farrell's club in
the pennant race from start to finish
in 1913. Then came-the Bermuda an
nouncement, and finally the arrange

the new plant is .finished.
Thus Farrell will be in a position to
take care of the enormous business
which is certain to follow the reju

Yorks," as Chance desires them called
and the wishes of the Peerless leader
in this respect will undoubtedly be

New York city promoters are en

is a clever boxer and would give the
coast favorite a hard fight. Both men
have met and defeated Leach Cross.
It is probable that the winner would
be matched to meet Willie Ritchie next
Fourth of July.
Manager Charles Dooin, of the Phil

closed for a spring training camp.
Dooin will confer with president Locke
about the advisability of invading

his contract to play with the Browns
next season. Baum is wintering down
In Virginia, where he does a song and

of predicting the "greatest season of

as to whether he resigned or whether
they beat him to it.

each realizes the ability of the other.
Chance has seen Chase play and knows
what he can do. The only Hal will be

other clubs of the American league.
There has been some talk that
