Chicago, May 19. One three-base
blow by Harry Desmond Lord broke
up the final White Sox-Yankee ball
game yesterday and enabled Ed Walsh
to add one more triumph to his long
string without pitching anything that
would dent a wire screen. Score,
5 to 3.
Lord put-his three baser into right
center field with all the bases inhab
ited in the third inning, spilled the
inhabitants onto the pan, and com
pleted the circuit himself a moment
later on an infield killing. The four
tallies for which he was responsi

could amass off the Big Reel in nine

Earl Henderson of this city put up
the battle of his career yesterday aft
ernoon, and after outpointing his op
ponent, was awarded the decision In
I the sixth inning after Eddie Hart of
j Chicago had deliberately fouled him.
By mutual agreement the battle was
continued after both men had rested,
but a resumption of questionable tac
tics on the part of the Chicago pug,
was the signal for the affair being
called off by Referee Dennis Bennett
in the seventh. A big crowd of fans
made the excursion trip down the
EARL 1 GRE1AT.
When it ,was announced that Hen
derson was matched with Eddie Hart,
his many friends in the city were
somewhat dubious as to the outcome.
One week ago it will be remembered
that Hart won the decision over
"Trouble" Burgeson, in one of the
fastest fights ever pulled in this lo
cality. Burgeson has met alot of the
bine book boys but was clearly out
pointed by the Chicago pug, whose
youth and endurance gave him a big
advantage over the Kansas City vet
eran. Many opined that Henderson's
manager was making a big mistake in
matching Earl against a man of Hart's
class. But there were a lot of sur
prises yesterday. Henderson showed
the goods all the way, and at the con
clusion of the fight, ie was handed a
bouquet by Jack Redmond, one of the
real sports, who is conducting Hart's
ring campaigns. Listen to what Jack
said:' "Henderson certainly is a w-on-derful
little fighter. He has got the
makings of a champ if he takes care
of himself and is careful. He has got
a wallop 1n either mitt, and his foot
work is great. He in so shifty that it
is almost impossible to land on him
squarely. I take off my hat to him."
Earl entered the ring at 138, while
Hart had a shade the best of it on the
weight, probably by two or three
pounds. Both boys put up a beauti
ful fight for five rounds, neither one
gaining much advantage. Neither one
got to his opponent for any extensive
damage, and neither one bore any
marks of the conflict.
The first round was even. In the
second Earl showed a flash of form
and clearly outpointed Hart. The
third was even. In the fourth Hart
made his best showing of the after
noon, and had a shade. The fifth was
see-saw and then came that fatal
In this stanza both men advanced
cautiously to the center of the rin?.
Henderson then became, the aggressor
and pressed the fight in great shape,
using both mitts with telling advan
tage. Earl followed Hart all over the
ring, and was sending in crashing
right and lefts at will. Hart forgot
his blocking game and came back. It
3s one of those old time slugging
matches for a minute, and then the
Windy City product began 'o show
signs of wear. Watching his chance
he deliberately whipped over one be
low the belt, and Henderson doubled
up I ke a log, crashing to the canvas.
Referee Ilennis Bennett immediately
awarded the tight to Henderson and
The crowd was no' satisfied with
j so brief an engag"inent and clamored
for more. With a desire to give the
bugs a run for their mcney,.both men
aiain entered the ring by mutual
agreement, after a 15 minute rest.
MOKE HOI 1,11 WORK.
In this rornd Hart again s'arted his
rough tatics and was repeatedly
warned for butting with h!s head. Hen
derson came back strong, and Hart
made five plays for wallops below the
belt, when the referee again stepped
in and called the fight off, awarding
Henderson the decision.
In a four-rodnd preliminary. Kid
Racer got the decision over Young
Brondel', a brother of Harry, the
wrestler. Both hil from D.venport.
Brondell was considerably punished,
and besides a couple of bum lamps
was rather freely decorated over his
