CINCINNATI, Jan. 7. — The
Baseball Flayers' Fraternity scor
ed a distinct victory ln their meet
ing with the national commission,
practically all but two of their 17
requests being granted by the mo
guls. Most of the requests were
in regard to the releasing and
signing of players, and the waiv
Dave Fulls headed the delega
tion from the Fraternity.
Short Sport |
Boxing fans are glad that Joe
Bonds and Frank Farmer are go
ing to get together at last.
Mike Lynch hot, decided that
Danny Shea will do as his chief
backstop and has traded Marry
Hannah for Jimmy Lewis of Sac
While Hannah Is a good man,
Lewis has always been one of the
best hitters on the Sacramento
team, and lt is surprising that
tha Wolverine management Is
wining to let him go.
Wattalet of Vi«-t««rla is looking
for a second baseman who can fill
the shoes ot Johnny Rawllngs.
There has been easier tasks.
Victorians expect Outfielder
Wotell to be a sensation this year,
but he will never be able to take
tho place of Harry Meek. Not
In one thousand years.
In fact, it seems rather foolish
of Watty to let Meek go. In ad
dition to his value as a batter, the
Mg fellow was a great drawing
card. Hundreds of fans went to
see Victoria play because Slugger
Meek was on the lineup.
Houghhouse Burns must be Im
proving. He held Sammy Oood
to a .-round draw at Steveston
Willis, a pitcher well known ln
this league, having been with
Spokane and Vancouver, Is now a
member of the Kansas City team.
Duddy, the new lnflelder Seat
tle secured from Butte, Is said to
bo a corking hitter and third
Dugdale is now on the lookout
for a good rlghtflelder, as Lee
Strait will not return.

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 7. —
Ills real name Isn't "Texas" —
they call him that because he
halls from the Lone Star state.
It's Albert B. Ritchie.
He can bend inch and a half
pipe over his neck, stomach or
forearm; he can drag twenty
drays with a man on each, all
attached by ■ single rope passed
around his neck.
I He can take two decks of cards,
put them together and tear off
i every one of the four corners be

He can take an Inch pipe be

Here's a bit of his history:
"Texas" went to Chicago when
I five and sold papers on the
i streets. When 11 he weighed ir-x
pounds and couldn't get auybody
1 to believe that he waß under 15
Then he heard the call of the
West and arrived In San Fran
cisco after a six week's Joruuey,
di>*lng which ho worked himself
across the continent, arriving
with $310, earned selling papers
. and shining shoes.
Then he dreamed he was San
dow. This took him on the stage.
He's been at it In one form or an
other, doing his strong-mrn
stunts ever since.
"Texas" put ln two terms at
Stanford, ills folks were ambi
tious to make him a doctor. It
couldn't be done. He got revenge
on them by making himself Into
a man who never needs a doctor.
"The good things of the body,
like the evil ones," says Tex, "are
the result nf mental rather than

BONDS TOUGHENING UP
FOR BOUT WITH LOGGER
Joe Bonds is going to lie pre
pnreil to withstand a few hard
punches when he meets Frank
Farmer. He is toughening up by
letting his sparring partners cut
loose with tlie haymakers while
he thrusts out his jaw and tukes
the wallops with a smile. Joe
Hill spared several rounds with
him yesterday and Bonds took
my number of his choice swings.
Claud McQuillan Is working
out every day with Joe, and ke
generally mukes things pretty
lively. Claud is a good sparring
While hundreds of fans turn
out to Sehock's to watch Bonds
train, Farmer may be said to be
almost conducting his workout lv

There Is considerable talk go

Tlilb might be true —If Farmer

GAME LAWS CONFLICT IN
Quite a few of the local hunt
ers are up in tbe air in regard
to the way th efederal and state
laws conflict in regard to the kill
ing of ducks and geese this
The federal law states that the
season closes January IS, but the
state law says it is lawful to hunt
and kill this game until the last
day of this month.
Naturally, the sportsmen want
all the hunting they can get, and
some of them don't see why they
can't shoot all of this month, re
gardless of the federal law.
Game Warden Ira Light has
been given orders by Darwin, the
state game warden, that the fed
eral laws must be enforced, and
the game warden Is prepared to
report any one who hunts ducks
to the federal authorities. He has
no right to aurcst a hunter for
breaking the law ln this case.
The question of whether the
state law is co-hstltutlonal or not
is now up before the supreme
court, and If it Is decided favor
ably, of course those who hunt
the latter part of the month will
