Jimmy Clabby and "Gunboat Smith all
ha" their doubts which they believe In
Hicfttive of a victory or defeat.
After his defeat by Frank Mantel!, two
vears ago in Los Angele.s, Jack swore off
on the Superstition stuff. While training
for thi. encounter, he picked up every
horseshoe nail which he came across whi e
doing road work each morning. This Is
also a hobby of Benny Chavez, Kocky
motnin bantam chpion. -The Picture
shows that Charlie Eyton was holding Man
tell up to give him the decision' saia
Jack. "I didn't get a fair deal in that
bout, as Mantell used his head and elbows
to good advantage."
Joe Herrick. manager of his brother, has
received an offer for toe big middleweight
to box Al Smauldtng at Albuquerque, after
his fight with. Luis Gonzales. Smaulding
defeated Gonzales in the fourth roan '
scheduled 10 round eo at Silver City sev
eral months ago. Hte success in obtaining
a draw with Vic Hanson over the short
route also boosted hia stck several Points.
Joe .started hard work at 116 North Ore
gon .treet Saturday afternoon preparatory
to his contest with Kid Ross, at Clifton,
Ariz. Jark, who is in much better ' shape,
having traveled the derby route Sunday,
will start either Monday or Tuesday. The
Ross bout will be Joe's first battle since
the celebrated 32 round bout with Bart
Gordon. After meeting Ross on January
10. at Clifton. Joe will journey back to Sil
ver City, in order to handle--Jack for the
Gonsales battle two days later.
Eddie Duffy worked with Joe Saturday
afternocn. Eddie has received an offer to
go jo New Orleans, and fight there. He
wants to go to California, however. He
has developed a lot of cleverness since his
la' t appearance at the Juarez arena, being
a shifty, cool lltt'e boxer.
Earl Puryear. the'Denver bantamweight,
who is well known In El Paso, will arrive
day morning. A. S. Ross, manager of the
Coloradoan, wired transportation recently.
Cal Mitchell, manager of Battl:ng Miner,
wants o match his charge against Battling
Mantell. Mitchell wants the fight to be
for 2t rounds and a side bet to be involved.
SPORT EDITORS AGREE
San Francisco, Calif,. Jan. 3. All the
sporting editors of San Francisco agree
that the fight between Gunboat Smith and
Arthur Pelkey was a disappointing exhibi
tion, if considered in the light of a stellar
heavyweight contest. The gunner won in
the 15th. knocking Pelkey out with a full
arm right-hand swing, followed by a
clubbed right chop to the base of the skulL
Pelkey showed cleverness only in the first
three rounds. There is loud complaint
that, though the gunner won, be was as
wild as a hawk, fought wide open and
would have been a mark for any man who
knew how to deliver a straight punch or
could tear in at the body at the clinches.
Many of Smith's supporters, however,
are Inclined to believe their man did all
that was expected of him and deserved
considerable credit for his showing.

nle. the local Uehtweight, here this
week, demonstrated that he has a great
left hand, as fast. If not faster, than
Charlie White, of Chicago, although he
does not hit quite so straight out with it
as White does. He is a splendid boxer and
feints his man well before letting go with his

one of the nervow kind of 'boxers, the same
as Kid McCoy and Jim Corbett when they

It is no wonder that some of the

WlHard Gets Real Match.
Jess Willard. the big white hope, who
has made some miserable showings about
the country the last few months, got into
a real match this week at New Haven,
Conn., and knocked out George Rodel, the
Boer champion, in the ninth round. When
these men met in Milwaukee a few months
ago Rodel outfought the big man and won
handily. He never gave the white hope
a chance to get started, beating him to
the punch every round. Only once did
willard nit tne uoer ana ne nurt him. bat
the latter recovered quickly and kept beat
ing him to the punch after that At New
Haven Willard put Rodel down in the fifth,
eighth and ninth rounds and seemed to
have him beaten throughout, using rongh
tactics which would not have been toler
ated in the Milwaukee ring. Willard is
surely big and strong enough to beat all
Carpentler Too Self Important.
It looks as though Georges Carpentler, the
French champion, is going to make thfa
same mistake that j. great many other
white boxers have made in the past Car
pentler, after his defeat of Bombardier
Wells in London, beoame imbued with the
idea that he was almost invincible an.
ready to tackle any heavyweights in thfc
business. Joe Choynski, one of the great
est fighters who ever put on a glove was
in the same frame of mind and went out
of his class to tackle all the heavyweights
going. Joe, however, really was a wonder
ful fighter, although he scaled when at his
best only 160 to 165 pounds, but he dem
onstrated that with all his great fighting
ability he could not cope successfully with
men much bigger than himself Carpen
tler. from all accounts, has proved a very
formidable fighter, but he weighs when
in condition, only about 168 pounds and
it is a question whether he can give away
25 pounds or more to a veteran fighter like
Joe Jeanette. The negro has been
one of the hardest fighters in the country
to beat, as Sam Langford and Jack John-

making a mistake in going against such Morgan's
a bard game and giving away that amount
of weight Of course. If he can defeat
Jeanette. he will, be hailed as a world's
champion: that Is, among the white men.
Bobble DiTubs Came Back.
Bob Fltzsimmons, the exchampion heavy
weight and without doubt one of the great
est fighters that 'ever trod an arena, was
as successful In trying to make a "come
back" at the age of 51 years, as Bobbie
Dobbs, the negro fighter of Minneapolis
of nearly .half a century ago. Fitz claimed
that ha could defeat all the white hopes
in one ring'' and wanted to be matched
against any of them the. New York clubs
might select during January, but the box
ing commission, decided thtt Fitz, even
with all his fighting ability, was too old
to. reenter the game. They put up the
bars. Bobble Dobbs, who is nearly the same
age and who has been fighting off and
on daring the last 3 years, made a "come
back" not long ago in Vienna, Austria.
Bobbie had been teaching boxing at Buda

Clabby is Picked to TVln.
Jimmy Clabby, who is a real middle
weight and who lays claim to the cham
?lonahip of that class, has been matched
d meet Mike Gibbons in Los Angeles
January IT. It Is stated that this will
be one of the elimination contests for the
middleweight xtitle. There is hardly any
reasonto stage an elimination toernament.
for Clabby today has more right rb the
title, that is, at 15S pounds ringside, than
any other man. Of course, if Jack Dil
lon could make the weight he would have
aa much right to lay claim to the title as
any one else, but he admits he cannot do
tetter than 15S pounds four hours before
a contest George Chip, woh defeated Frank
Klaus twice by the knockout route, is also
a contender, but in a long battle with a
clever man Hke Clabby, he will figure in
the short end of the betting. Clabby and
Gibbons should put up a very scientific bat
tle and it will not be surprising to hear
of Gibbons outpointing Jimmy for the first
eight or ten rounds, but after that, look
opt for the Clabby boy, for he will begin
to beat the St Paul lad toward the end
Of the contest or I am badly mistaken.

discovery was recently nude by secretary
Charles Harvey of the New York boxing
commission, who cabled tte astounding
information to pari , reapense to a query
from the French boxing authorities con
cerning Johnson s status aa a pug.
It appears that certain promoters on the
other side are peeved at- &e champion be
cause he has refused to-do business at
their clubs. I suppose there la Just about
as much jealousy and Bickering over there
among the backers of Oght dubs as on

refusing to meet Sam Langford, had for
feited his claim on the title.
Naturally the local people could not do
this, much as they might have wished to.
There Is no possible way of taking the
title away from Johnson excepting by kil
ling hin in a alr fight in the ring, acci
dent or through his voluntary retirement
There is nothing In the rules (what a joke
those rules) which compels a champion to
defend his title any oftoner than he feels
like it In the old days a champion was
supposed to defend his title at least once
a year, if anyone challenged, but nowa
days conditions are different and he ls ex
pected to fight only when broke or his

It would be a good idea -If the authori
ties of the different countries were to get
together and adopt an international rul
which would force all pugilistic champions
to defend their titles every so often, but
how are you going to bring them together?
It might be possible to ret the French
promoters to consent to such a convention,
and in England whatever the National
Sporting club decides is accepted as final
by the smaller fry, but in the dear old
V. S. A. how about It? Why over here
the aathorities in one state will not even
respect the rulings ef - the moguls In an
other. For recent example, take the Wis
consin ruling-- against Packey McFarland.

"harmonious" rnnrHtlsas exist in this coun

ing. Johnson's latest appearance in the ring
indicates that he has hit the down grade.
Apparently it would not now take a really
great fighter to defeat him. Jim Coffroth.
of San Francisco, has the right idea. First
find a battle ground, then offer the big
smoke a fat purse and see how quickly be
would grab it The greatest difficulty Cof
iroth will experience Is finding the com
munity where they will stand for John
son. Ritchie is ruder Suspicion.

Tommy Murphy. If anything should hap
pen to the champion necessitating another
delay he would have a very hard time ex
plaining it to the satisfaction of the Pan
Francisco public. Since he abandoned the
Welsh match in Canada, and then had to
ask a postponement of the bout with it-.ir-phy.
the champion has been under sus
picion on the coast
Like Ad Wolgast. Willie seems to be un
lucky in many ways. Here in the east,
where we know Tommy Murphy's limits
and have a fairly good idea of what Ritchie
can do we figured the bout with Murpny
as some easy money for the champion.
Bat out California way, where Tommy has
fought several good battles, they look at it
in a different light and several critics
have even accused Willie of harboring no
desire to test his vaunted skill against that
of the New Yorker.
Since Ritchie has gone on record In favor
of raising the lightweight limit to 13i
pounds, a howl has arisen from different
parts of the country that he is really a
welterweight From what I had been told
I was under the impression that the light
weight champion could no more make 133
pounds and be fit than I could. But when
training for the New York bout with Leach
Cross I watched Willie jump on the scales
several days before the fight, and he bal
anced at exactly 133 1-2. And. mind you.
the conditions of that match did not call
for 133 but for 135 at S oclock in the even
ing. As this weight was what Ritchie
scaled two or three days before the bout it
is easy to imagine that 133 ringside would
be no great hardship for him.
Murphy's Manager Likes to Talk.
Jim Buckley, manager for Tommy Mm-
fitly, likes to talk a lot Jim is a good fel
ow and all that, but never feels so happy
as when he has an audience. Anyhow, a
day or two after the recent postponement
all parties interested met in Jim Coffroth's
office to arrange a new match. Ritchie
wanted the same weight conditions to gov
ern. Buckley made a spiel about Murphy
wanting the weight 133 ringside, that his
boy was entitled to some concessions in
view of the fact that the postponement
was no fault of his, and that he (Buckley)
would bet 15000 if the champion would
consent to that weight Ritchie came back
so quickly with the coin that it made
Buckley's hair curt But Jim got out of it
by saying that he meant he would bet the
money at the prevailing ringside odds, and
not at even money.
Anyone who thinks that Ritchie can't
make 133 has another guess coming.
Talk of Canning Wolgast.
Now the Wisconsin boxing moguls are
talking of suspending Ad Wolgast If they
keep on the members of the boxing com
mission will have to furnish Wisconsin's
fistic entertainment themselves. There will
not be a boxer worthy of the name who
will care to take a chance in the state for
fear of suspension for something or other.
George Chip may eventually be middle
weight champion, but I don't know by
whose or what authority he is now re
ferred to as champion. There are several
other good men In the division he will
have to beat before the public will be ready
to accept him as Stanley Ketchel's suc-
could enthuse very much over the Klaus
type of fighter. That kind do not appeal
to me as first class men. Frank's greatest
feat was stopping Georges Carpentler and 1 1
is a question if there is a middleweight of
any account in this country who couldn t
torn the same trick
Second Match No Surprise."
The result of the second match between
Chip and Klaus, as I say. did not surprise
me in the least I said in this column two
weeks ago in commenting on the fighters:
"Chip is likely to beat a fellow like Klaus,
who has little science, any time they meet
Both depend on hard hitting and Chip
probably carries the heavier guna"
I would like to see that Los Angeles
middleweight tournament of Tom Mc
Carey's go through. But I understand that
the match between Jack Dillon and Jimmy
Clabby. which had- been arranged for Jan
uary 15, has already been called off. and
that McCarey has grown tired of the job
of trying to bring the leaders In the divi
sion together in the ring
Chip, though, intends to take on all
comers in the middleweight class, so It is
announced He will in all probability be
seen in New. York shortly. Several local
clubs are competing for bis services and It
Is a sure thing that he will grab one of
the offers. It has not yet been decider
who his opponent will be. but if Billy Gib
son grabs the bout for the Garden it may
be Mike Gibbona But Chip would have
to do 158 ringside to get a match with the
St Paul man and I doubt If he can make
that weight .
Gibbons would show us Just how good

ir -r ERY often a "bone" on the part of some player who believes Uiat
f he Js pulling something new causes trouble galore.
In a game played last summer between two prominent semi-
professional chit, with. the. score a tie in the ninth, one down and. runners
on second and third, things began to happen. The catcher of the visiting
team noticed that he runner on third was taking a big lead on each
baH pitched. He decided that an accurate snap throw ought to catch
him napping. The play worked as he had expected, a pretty throw getting
the runner on third flat footed. Thera being no chance for the runner to
get back to third, he made a dash for home. A run-up then ensued,
practically every player of the team in the field joining in the play to
retire the man who had been caught off third base.
In the meantime, the runner on second, belteving that the other
runner was sure to be retired, advanced to third. Upon reaching that
bag, he had an inspiration, said inspiration creating all the trouble and
argument that followed. He decided' that while the other players were
busy trying to retire the man who had been caught napping, he would
slip by them and sre the winning-run. Following out his plan, he got
under full speed and dashed by the other players, crossing the plate a
fraction of a second before the other runner was touched out on the
lines. A goodly portion of the crowd surged on the field and began to
celebrate the supposed victory. What was the proper decision, and what
do you suppose the Empire was finally forced to do?
(Copyrighi. 1914, by the Wheeler Syndicate. Inc.)
Answer to Yesterday s Problem.
k EARING that the man on third might attempt a steal of home, he
being noted for such stunts, the backstop of the visiting team was
catchinsr very close to the batter. The batter struck rather late at
the ball, which he pipped up to, the first baseman for what appeared the
third out. Unfortunately, the catcher tipped the bat of .the batsman as
he was about to swing, interfering with his efforts. The umpire could
do only one thing, grant the batter first base and allow all the other
runners to'"be advancers as they were forced to do so to. make room for
th batter. This sent the ran across the plate that tied the score, while
the single by the next batter won the game that seemed lost. It is
needless to add that the umpire had a very strenuoue afternoon of it, for
he had to shift with the teams to the other city.
