"YOUNG JACK" WILL BE CHAMPION OF FOUR CLASSES, SAYS
"PHILADELPHIA JAWN;" ANYHOW, LITTLE BROTHER HAS

John Thomas Augustine Hagan,
knonn as "Vounj; Jack O'lirien,"
in characteristic flghtiiiK poses.
"Young Jack O'Brien." who
left college to become a prize
fighter and save the family name
when Sam Langford defeated his
brother, "Philadelphia Jack," has
started oft like an all-conquering
He is regarded today as a pos
sible lightweight champion, and
his brother predicts he will suc

classes up to and including the
No one will deny that "Phila
delphia Jawn" is qualified to pre

experience enough to know a
future great Irom a bloomer.
When enrolled at Mount St.
Mary's college, "Young Jac**" was
John Thomas Augustine Hagan,
but when he took to the ring he
adopted the name made famous
by his brother, and as "Young
Jack" O'Brien is picking up fame
This youngster, but 18, is de
clared to be the fastest light
weight that ever pulled on a
glove; to be as scientific as his
brother ever was; to be a ring
general of ability and to "pack a
punch" that has chloroform beat
en a whiff, as a sleep maker.
After "Phllly Jawn" had been
defeated by Ketchel and ).;nir-
ford, the young brother quit
school and demanded that Jack
But "Old Jack" refused. He
doubted the boy's ability, so the
youngster began teaching him
self. In May, 1911, in an ama
teur tournament, in Philadelphia,
"Young Jack" did things to his
opponent that were sinful.
Promoters hailed him as a fu
ture champion, hut his brother
was not convinced. In August,
1911, a preliminary boxer "ran
out" at O'Brien's club at the last
minute and O'Brien was in de
spair until "Young Jack" begged
for the chance to go on.
Big brother grudgingly gave
little brother a chance with fear
in his heart, and was the most
surprised man in the house when
the "kid" made his opponent look
like a novice.

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 3.—
Nothing in the greasy picturesque
old China town of former days
was worse than the conditions
found in a Pertola alley slave den
by federal officers in a recent
It was thought that the "Old
Chinatown" was no more—thalt
its cellars and subcellars li.-id

for a New Chinatown. Occasion

passed with the fire.
Perhaps a posse of policemen
could not have penetrated the cel
lars of the Chinatown before thp
fire. It was said that even the
police who were must familiar
with the district did not know alp
its depths and tunnels, and that
their secrets were obliterated by
the fire of 1906. However that
may be, there has beeu reared
above the ground a maze of corri
dors, trap doora, secret passages
and barred doors that illustrate
the working of the Oriental mind
as faithfully as did the subter
ranean network before the fire.
The Portola alley house is said
to be only one of several places
similarly equipped where the law
of the state and nation are con
sistently defied. Th« difficulty

made by the Chinese to protect
their system from outside Inter
There are no stairways in the
four-story brick building and
every window is covered with
heavy bars, besides a screen that

In case of fire they would have
been burned like rats in a trap.
The rooms are elegantly fur
nished, but otherwise bear all the
marks of a prisoner's cage. Once
inside, escape is impossible with
out an ax and a ladder, and then
it is necessary to know the secret
pennels and the covered trap
doors that offer the only opening.
When the federal officers and
their police escorts broke into
the den they had to search the
walls and ceilings in each room
