AN AMATEUR ATHLETIC
CLUB IS WHAT THIS CITY
NEEDS TO HELP SPORTS
This la a clubby town. If reports are true, there have been
organized In this city three athletic clubs to put on boxing matches,
and the fans have yet to see the first smoker.
Joe Qmm*B was the first man in Tacoma recently to break the
Ice when be announced that the Hillside Athletic club was ready
for business. Joe fixed up a pretty good card, but the smoker faded
away when Frank Riley organized the Bualnaaa -Men's Athletic club
a week later. Riley prepared for a good card, signing up Denver
Kd Martin with Battling Uramlt for 10 rounds, but the coppers put
a stop to the affair, and the Dullness .Men's club had to call off
Now Joe ISonds comes back. Joe says lie wants to organize an
athletic club stamped with the approval of the A. A. 11. While it is
Improbable and Impracticable for an amateur club of that nature at
the present time, this plan Is by far the best that has been Submitted
to Insure clean sport In all lines of athletics for Tacoma.
An amateur club would guarantee the fans a good card, and it
would bring to this city several men from other similar organiza
tion* In the northwest. Vancouver, I!. C.. Spokane, Seattle and
Portland have splendidly equipped clubs which compete not only
in boxing but In all other lines of sport, and the quality dished up
to tIM fan« has built up a patronage that has made these organi
Why can't Tacema have an amateur athletic club to competet
with theso cities'.'

game and lost it. The next year,
however, Maul was right and was
the best of the Oriole pitchers.
