Chicago, Sept. 16. Just by way of
tuning up for the classic October
stakes Mr. McGrsw's finely balanced
speed machine stocked with Giants
peeled off a 13-lnnlng finish on their
ancient enemy the Cubs, in the second
battle cf the set at the West Sido
grounds yesterday. With eight and
two-thirds rounds cleared, JeCerson
Tesreau looked to be an easy winner
via the shutout medium, then tho
scene shifted, a homer by Vic Saier,
serving to knot the count at two-all.
New York forged ahead in the 12th
only to be overhauled again. By lin

Racine, Wis., Sept. 16. Charlie
White stopped Mickey Sheridan 48
seconds after the bell started the sec
ond round of the wind-up on Racine's
big boxing card last night He did
not knock him out, except technically.
He dropped Mickey with a straight
left to the chin while they were in a
sharp mixup. Mickey went down heav
ily, uut the fighting spirit was still
there. He clamored to his feet at the
four count, then dropped to one knee
again when he heard Fred Gilmore
shout to take the count He glared
savagely at White while waiting to get
up, but when he clambored to his
feet was decidedly unsteady.
White started right after him, but
when Referee Haggey observed the
unsteadiness of the Irishman, he
stepped between the men and called a
nait. The crowd veiled. "Let thpm
fight," and Harry Gilmore. Sr.. shoutpd
to Haggey that Sheridan was able to
continue. But Hagey had stopped it
and his word was law.
A few seconds later Sheridan was
revived enough to protest and danced
around the ring to show the crowd that
he was all right Mickey was a sadly
disappointed ringman when he started
to his dressing room.
Mickey might have been able to stick
a little longer, but the chances are
White would have stopped him cold
in the second round. Charley was all

strong of Chicago boxed the greatest
eight-round semi-windup we ever saw
in these parts. A just verdict Is a
draw, because Armstrong outboxed his
more inexperienced foe for the first
six rounds. But young Mr. Sinnert
sent out in the last two rounds by
Larney Lichtenstein, stood the tans
on their heads. with a whirlwind finish.
It was his first fight of any import
ance, and he made good with a ven
geance. In a long figbt ho would have
won to a certainty. He hud Armstrong
weary and sick at the finish. Arm
strong popped the boy often in the
early rounds and slashed his left eye
open. But the kid kept coming and
coming, and at the end Artie was
legging it to save Jiis scalp.
Sinnett can take a punch and he
can land one, though his delivery is
wild. He will learn, though, and if
he stays at the same weight he will
be one of the best in the business in
a year. It was a great little scrap
and we are glad to have seen it :
