Oahu Maiil 11. , The narrow margin of one goal gave the Oahu team the inter-island polo championship for 1914. Yesterday afternoon, on the fast Schofleld bar racks field, and before an, enthusiastic rrowd of Dost and town polo fans, the Vaiipv Island and Oahu fours battled rfonrtelv for the coveted title, and ' tthen the final bell' rang Maui was ' driving the ball toward the Oahu goal at the rloae or a rany wrucnnaa su- rdv resulted In one score in .the : eighth period. There was a good chance that another , minute's play would have tied the score. The game' was marred by an accl- drnt to David Fleming, who was forced to retire from the game while 5 mlnutea of the play in the third period stm remained. Fleming had . possession of the ball on the south boards, and hit out towards goal Har old Castle, rMing Sailor Boy, entered the right of way safely and was man- euverlng to back the ball, when Flem- ' Jng came -up from behind, following his owtf. shot. The players were at close quarters, and Sailor Boy lashed out behind and placed his hoofs cn Fleming's chest with a terrific crash. Castle. and his mount went down in a heap, the rider falling clear, while Fleming went a few yards further and then slid out of his saddle, , The wind was completely knocked out of . him, and besides this v examination showed that several ribs were bent After 10 minutes - Fleming made - a game effort to return to the game, -but he was In -no condition to play, and r his presence wculd have been a men ace to the safer of the game. He w as finally persuaded not Jo vtry' It Maul had no substitute ready to play, but W, A. Clark, who plays regularly cn; the Valley Island, was 'on hand, and was hustled into riding clothes to , fill In. Clark's regular position is iacki and at first he merely took Fleming's plnce on the team. This, however, left a rap in Maul's defense, as Clask, going" in cold, cculd harCly be expected to ft smoothly into the Maal machine. AdlpylMv&Iiifteiinu "a'U. "3. Harold Itlce going to back. After a rerlod of play still another combina tion was tried, Maui lining up with Clark 1, Collins 2, Baldwin 3, and Rice back. This worked to good advan tage, Clark having instructions to pay lees attention to stick work and col lar the Oahu back, Arthur Rice. ' J lis riding off was exrellent and on sev eral occasions he cleared the wayfor long runs.- . : W; The star playing-cf ; the day was done by Arthur CoUIns, who had a preat chance to show his hitting abil ity when relieved of the riding-off re Fpcnsibllltles of No. 1.

One in the seventh - period was especially brilliant the ball being Btarted along the sideboards by Har old Rice, who did a dare-devil stunt astride Cf the boards and then passed to Collins,'" who drove the-ball down field in three terrific ..swipes, scoring cn the third from an angle.v ' ; The change from Mbanalua to t.eile hua was a happy one as it turned but and the players cf both teams were most appreciative cf - the hospitality shown by the pest commander and the array polcists.

CORBETT. NEW YORK. Freddy Welsh, chara pion lightweight of the world, is not being annoyed to any extent with. 'of fers, of matches. Fred has been back in this country about two weeks, and there appears to be no greater demand for his-ser vices than before be beat Ritchie for the premier honors of the division. Freddy never did star in these parts. His local exhibitions were hardly of the sort to interest the fana in hi3 future appearances. .Strange, too, be cause there is no denying that the lit tle Englishman iSy an iuusually clever boxer. But something is lacking in his methods. Welsh's style of play ing the game as safe as he possibly can is no doubt the explanation. Fans Like the Fireworks. ' Latter day fight fans I am speak ing of Americans like plenty of fire works in matches even where the men are clever exponents' of the art of boxing. Welsh has been going along for years working just hard enough to attract the referee's eye in a decision bout for the popular verdict over the decisionless route. As a local expert aptly puts it, Freddy. Is a believer in the "safety first" plan of fighting his ring battles, and 'the boy who plays only a defensive game will never be much of a drawing card with Ameri can fight fans. Unless some big a traction, such as - Ritchie or McFar land, is booked to bos Welsh a bout in this city would not draw very much money. ..; . - '; Briton Wants a Match. There is some talk of Welsh meet ing Jack Britton at a local club. But; so far as I can find the talk is all on the Britton side. A match with the hard-working Jack wouldn't be- half ; bad, and while we would much pre fer to see the champion in. a return stunt with Ritchie, one with Britton would satisfy. Britton is not the best of his .weight, but quite good enough to give any boy in v the . lightweight; division a stubborn argument for ten 1 rounds. His exhibitions with Packey McFarland stamped vritton as a boxer of considerable class. "vZ--''1 j Little Doing in Heaviea.1 . J r-WhiI ';theT"ha fccen' etrtsftfeTable talk of matches of "class in the heavy weight division, nothing baa yet been . announced; that appeals specially to local fans. When Gucboat Smith came back from England it was expected that something worth while would be : staged, as Jess Wiltard waa "hanging around with a chip on .his shoulder.. As yet, however, the match is still In the air. 'V','''--- -',,-i" ;?X'VJ Jim Buckley, the Gunboat's- man ager, doesn't seem to be quite so en thusiastic over his protege as he was a few months back. Can It be that the Gunner's showing against Carpen tier disappointed "Buck," . Whatever, the. reason, the screppy manager Is not going around defying anybody and. everybody in the heavyweight class as was the xase before the Carpentier fiasco. v:. :v;:';'v - Buckley .Wants Big Guaranty. r ; I am told on quite "good authority that Buckley refuses to talk business ; with rthe promotera regarding a match with Willard unle33.a big guaranty is. forthcoming. This Is different from Ws methods of not so long ago. when: Buck and the Gunner were willing to gamble : on the house any old - time. But in the 'Willard match one can scarcely blame both for holding out for good money. l Gunboat and Jess fought 20 rounds in San Francisco nearly two years ago, , and Jess ? was then . hardly more than: a big novice with a single idea in his cranium about fighting, which was to avoid punishment as much as possible and let the victory light where it might Willard at that fought like a good man in pots whenever the Gunner would sting him and while Smith' was awarded the verdicW by Referee Jim Griffin, who ought to know, a number of experts contended Jess had earned a draw. : " Manager Buckley has : been quoted as saying that Willard is too big and altogether too dangerous a man to risk the Gunboat's reputation . against unless the latter.iswell paid for said risk. - Which ' may or may not be "a confession of fear for the Gunner in a bout wjth the gigantic Kansani ; ' 'V Gunboat's manager has also turned down en offer to box Sam Langford a return match In Boston, but naturally enough Buckley is quite, satisfied with the result ortholr; former match-in which Smith was given 'the decision. Buckley knows that when Langford Is "right" he is more than likely to beat any heavyweight In the ring Iri a few rounds. And stories are coming from Boston that Langford fias been train ing .faithfully the last few weeks pre paring for what Jie fondly hopes will be a busy campaign during the coming fall and winter months.
