NO CHAMP EVER MATCHED
M'CARTY'S PAST-OR FAMILY
SIDNEY, Ohio, Jan. 10. —
"Wham!" said a man near tUe
ring side, ag a left hand swing,
delivered by Harry Holliiiger, an
obscure laborer in a local tan
nery, knocked out Luther Mc-
Carty—and ma<le McCarty cham
pion of the world.
Hollinger, a giant, put over the
epoch making punch in a vacant
mniv in this town, one August
night in 1911.
Incidentally, MeCarty's remun
eration for the pummelling was a
quarter, and he received this sum
because, he explained, "I needed
two bits to buy some hash."
In this, his first boxing contest,
McCarty was literally beaten to
a pulp. When he regained con
sciousness Luther offered his
hand to the victor and exclaimed:
"You made a dub of me, Harry,
but I'm going to stick to the
game and. show up some of you
fellows before I'm through."
There Is just one subject dis
cussed on the street corners In
Sidney these days and that is the
meteoric ascent of "Lute" Mc-
Carty.
"Why, me and 'Lute' used to
work on the South Water street
paving job together," one fellow
proudly exclaimed.
"Many'a the time McCarty
washed them there windows," !■
the now threaadbare explanation
of a Railroad street barber.
"Lute was one of the best sew
er diggers in the county, and I
ain't no slouch myself," is the
egol Ist leal confidence oft repeated
of another native.
The heavyweight champion was
not born here, but on a ranch on
Driftwood creek. In that portion
of Nebraska known as Wild
Horse Canyon, March 20, 1892.
McCarty took up his residence Jn
Bidney In 1907.
The boy'g father, "Dr." Anton
P. McCarty, known as "White
Eagle," was for yearn proprietor
of a traveling Indian medicine
show. He lives Jn Plqua, 10
miles south of herp.
"Sure I'm proud of my boy,"
said "Dr." McCarty, "but his be
ing champion is no surprise to
nie. I predicted that years ago.
And do you know why? Well,
sir, because Luther told me he
would b« champion.
"He was always 'daffy' about
prize fighting. Even as a boy
the little cuss never said bed do
a thing but that he did it.
"But don't think my boy's be
ing champion would keep me

It!" and the father of Palser's
conqueror drew up his C feet 5
inches and his 315 pounds of an
atomy with pardonable pride.
"Luther'B a fine boy, but he
hasn't won a decision over his
dad, and he won't until he be
comes of age next March.
"I've only one regret," and the
giant's eyes were suspiciously
moist, "and that is that Luther's
mother didn't live to see him
champion."
Luther's mother weighed 200
and was six feet In height.
Until she retired recently, Mc-
Carty's sister, who lives at
Boise, la., was konwn in vaude
ville as Hazel Kirkman, world's
champion woman bag puncher.
Luther McCarty was married at
16 to Miss Rhoda Wright, 19.
A daughter, Cornelia, aged 20
months, is their only child. Mrs.
MoCarty in the daughter of Theo
dore Wright, a prosperous farm
er residing several miles north
east of this place.

Some call him PalSer and oth

Joe McGinnlty stopped off at
Chicago today to look into the
capabilities of several young
sprouting ball players. There
will be another message tomor
row telling that he walked up
State street and shook dice for a
cigar aud lost. By the first of
next week it is expected he will
send a sizzling message that he
failed to pay the conductor his
carfare, and then Joe will start
for home and the sport scribes
will have something to sting the
typewriters about on the baseball
line.

MAY LEGALIZE
BOXING HERE
It is said that a plan Is on foot
in this state to legalize boxing
in the future and to pattern a
law after the Frawley act of New
York, which permits 10 round no
decisions, but prohibits the hang
ing up of purses.
The Frawley act has done a lot
in eliminating crooks from the
boxing game in New York, and
the game nas tnrlved.
Should a law be enacted here,
only competent hands could make
it a success, and the handling of
fights by irresponsible alleged
flght promoters and others look
ing for a sure graft would be as
sassination.

COBB'S DEMAND IS HONOR, NOT ORBED
Ty Cobb's friends say greed isn't back of his demand for an
increased salary. It is the unique distinction he is after. Hans
Wagner has been paid in the past $10,000 a year. Cobb's last de
mand for $9,000 was only a step in hi.s ambition, these friends say,
to surpass Wagner's mark. Probably Navin would give him $11,000
this minute. But Cobb wants to set the figure so high that it will
take a long time for another star to reach it, so he demands $15,000.
If he gets that high figure just one year he will not worry about
the next year.
CHICAGO CVIVS NOW ON
AYATKR WAGON FOR YKAR
According to a rule recently
laid down by President Murphy
of the Chicago National league
club, the baseball players of his
organization are now on the "wat
er wagon" Toi- the 1913 season.
Murphy's edict precipitated
heated words from Frank Chance,
the late manager, who claimed
that his players lost no games on
account of too frequent tippling.
Manager Evers, who succeeds
Chance, says the orders of tTie
president must be obeyed. It was
understood that the order was to
go into effect at the beginning of
the new year.
