friends here by his good ball play- i,

sports of the city in the role of a
boxer, but he is said to be fast.
Fitzgerald, who will go six rounds

as a hard man to best. Their bout
tonight will be for a decision.

Tommy Ryan and Jack Root. They
have settled the "pound of flesh"
wrangle and are now waiting bids
from the various clubs. Fort Erie
has offered a $70u0 purse for the
battle, and as it is the highest bid
offered it will probably be accept

A thousand dollar purse was "a
fortune for an ordinary fighter 10
years ago. hut at this stage of the
game any fighter who Is touted as
a championship possibility can de

any champion who fails to connect
with the long green this winter
should retire to the tall uncut.
Frank Erne's defeat at San Fran
cisco by Jimmy Brltt, the light

The contract which brings" the
heavyweights together is only one
of mutual agreement and may be

pot ice by either. If the tour is
financially successful, tbey will
probably remain together for some
months, touring the world.

He emphatically denies tho re
port:; that they will stop over for
any fistic encounter at the present
iattle and Portland. How an all-
I coast league will pay is a conun
drum that is bothering more than
one baseball fan. Portland is not
an exceptionally good ball town
;anJ the proposition in that town is
which one will freeze out first.
Magnates of both leagues say
i.ioy are determined to tight to the
end and it may be expected that
| both sides will have good players
and play good ball. Perhaps both
will be content to lose money rather
than back down in the matter.
Baseball fans, of course, will
patronize the league which puts up
j the best ball, and, as both are de
termined to have the best, one
thing is certain —the joyful fan will
not be the loser. Why not take
Salt Lake into the Pacific North
west league? It is a far better
ball town than Portland.
Portland, Ore—Director J. P.
Marshall of the Portland team
states that Portland Will represent
the Pacific coast league next year,
and that a majority of the players
have hern signed. Sain Vigneux
will probably manage.
