There is an excellent opportunity "at
the present time for some earnest,
hard-working young man, with a well
planned physique, a large amount 'of
momentum ia the swing of his arms
and a little natural boxing talent. Per
haps never before in the history of
the fight game was there such a beau
tiful chance for someone with the
goods to come forward and claim the
bay leaves. The fair Miss Title is wait
ing only too eager to embrace the first
thing thai shows up and seems to re
semble a soul mate. She has plenty
of suitors, but they're net a very in
teresting crowd and it is to be hoped
that she won't have to take any of
them in holy wedlock in want of a
j regular groom.

Outfielder Larry Chappello, the

Closky, III., the first tidings the White
Sox had received since ChappeUe
wired that he had left Milwaukee on
Ithe day of the sale.
According to the long distance con

Manager Callahan was asked wheth
er there was any dispute over salary
to account Tor Chappelle's nonappear
ance. "There couldn't be," said Calla
han. "The only word I have had
from him was the telegram saying
he had left Milw aukee. He telephoned
one of hio friends that he had taken
a few days off to visit his home as
he did not expect to get back until I drive, as was illustrated by Billings,

Owner Comiskey did' not take kind-
i Iy to the reported protest of New York
in regard to the Chase deal.
"Somebody must have told New
York that Hal Chase is playing great
ball. He was offered to several clubs
before we got a crack at him. Borton
played for several weeks, so there
could be nothing wrong with his con
dition. He fell off in hitting, but he
can hit yet.
"Regarding Zeider, there didn't seem
anything the matter with his condition
the day he beat us in New York after
the trade was made. We were playing
him before the trade and there was
nothing the matter with him when he
left the Chicago club."
II OTHER SHEETS
dick smith falls down.
Because of the sad showing made
by his Scranton, Pa., team In the
New York State league race, Dick
Smith, the former Decatur manager
is slated for release. Scranton is now
at the bottom of the league and the
i fans have lost so much interest in tVs
game that the scores are no longer
published In the. home newspapers.
When Smith leaves Scranton it Is
probable that he will become mana
ger of the Ironton, Ohio, club in the
Ohio State league. Irontcn Is Smith's
j home town and the fans there are
i aware of what he accomplished under
j Dick Kinsella in Springfield and thty
have much confidence la him. DecatuT

sore over what he considers "shabby
treatment" received at the hands ' of
American judiciaries, jurymen, police
and other officials. Paris is the ,city
that Johnson plans to honor with his
residence anu Paris can have him for
all of us. He will no doubt find a con
genial circle of acquaintances there,
as the Frenchmen are said to be very
fond of tha "cullud boxers." It seems a
pity that the big smoke had to be such
a simp as to trifle with public senti
ment and get in bad, when he might
have remained here in peace and lived
happily to his retiring years.
However, unpopular with the Amer
ican public at present, thera is no
denying that Johnson was a wonder
ful worker in the ring and his shoes
will be hard to fill. Surely there is
no one at present at all capable of
taking his 'place. Look them over.
Gunboat Smith, Jim Flynn and Al Pal

the heavyweight claimants at pres
ent, and of thess Gunboat Smith seems

out of the game with a case of blood

played to nearly 50,000 people up to
the middle of July and on Sunday,

HOW THE BOYS LOOK.
The fielding of the Blue Sox was
brilliant and only one error was chalk
ed up against them. Flaharty dropped
a fly after Koepping and Neer be
came mixed up over the high one that
Flannagan polled in the right garden.
Crouch had the locals eating out of
his hand all during the fray. Several
times he grew unsteady, but always
came back and retired the side.
Harry Kelly robbed himself of a
double, the finest hit of the game, by
the way, for neglecting to touch first
j base. To the man in the stands it
looks like inexcusable carelessness to
j miss tne cushions and on a par with
the declination to run out an infield
and the team on runs by this over
sight this season. It was a crime to
see that fine double of Kelly's go to
the discard. Umpire Johnson stood
right over the play and there was no
kick coming. Bloomington Para

THAT XEW PARK.
During the coming two weeks the
new Bickhaus park, will be a busy
place. To get the grounds in playing
shape, considerable dirt will be hauled
on the Infield. This, will be soaked
and rolled and rolled and soaked until
it is perfectly smooth and hard and
presents a perfect playing surface. Af
ter this work has been completed, the
infield will be cf the turtle back type,
insuring perfect drainage. Later on
the Infield will be sodded and then
the new park will be equal to the
best in minor league balldora.
The cost of the new park exceeded
the estimated cost by $2,500. When
the association decided to build it was

JOHNSON SEES SOX
AS FLAG WINNERS
' Detroit. Mich.. Julv 18. President
iBan Johnson of the American league
j alighted here yesterday and said
enough to convince the most skeptical
he is the best P. Ag'- " 3 business.
Byron B. started by saying that he
will not interfere with the sudden
change made in the Boston American
management; took a few shots at Um
pire Evans for inviting a fan to fig'at
under the grandstand at St. Louis;
promised to settle the trouble arising
between the Sox and Yankees over
the Chase deal and lastly made the
statement that the Athletics are by
no means the flag-winners.
Johnson thinks the White Sox Is the
club to five the leaders a fight for the
flag. He says the Mackmen must slow
up after the terrific pace set up to
the Fourth of July and that the other
clubs will gaid strength enough to
make a creditable showing against
Philadelphia. Much depends on the
rounding to of Walsh, so far a3 the
White Sox are concerned.
"I will investigate the Chase-Zeider-Borton
deal as soon as T rMi n
official report," said Johnson. "Chanee
uas niea complaint claiming that Calla
han misrepresented the physical con
dition of tle men given for Chase.
If I find that the Chicago officials did
misrepresent matters I will force them
to recompense the New York club.
This has been done before.
"Evans had no business to engage
in a brawl with a spectator, continued
Johnson, in referring to the mix-up in
which the umpire engaged yesterday at
St Louis. "I was surprised to learn
of the fight Evans is protected by the
park police and should have appealed
to them if any fan was annoying him."
President Johnson also'said in case
the Athletics and Giants' did win their
respective league championships the
world's series games would, be played
ou alternate days in New York and
Philadelphia. Should the winning
teams be separated by a greater dis
tance of travel than these two cities
then the series would be played two
games at home and two abroad. All
umpires in the world's series will re
ceive ?1,000 each for their wofk.
