SPORTING NEWS OF THE DAY, GATHERED FOR THE DETROIT TIMES
UY FIRE IF
SMOKE IS SO
PLENTIFUL
JEFFRIES MEANS TO FIGHT IF HE
IS RIGHT, REASONS TAD, AND
HERE IS THE NEW YORK EX
PERT'S LOGIC.
By TAD.
NEW YORK. Jan. ll—Out In Lo*
Angeles Jeffries is working like a
beaver. It is doubtful whether the
big ex-cbamplon ever worked auy
harder for a big ring battle than he
la doing now, and be says it's all for
g sparring stunt he Is to do in vaude
ville.
And the strangest thing about it all
Is that Jeff began his strenuous train
ing Just as soon as possible after lit
tle Arthur Johnson administered a
sound thrashing to T. Bums in Aus
tralia and incidentally annexed the
heavyweight title which Jeff laid aside
In flavor of the Canadian.
Yho long and short of the whole
thing la that Jeff Intends to tight John
son. If It Is possible for him to get
Into fighting trim, and this is why he
la now doing such laborious stunts in
tba gymnasium, bursting gloves and
punching bags and disfiguring slightly
tba personal appearances of his spar
ring partner. It Is simply a case of
tbsfO being a lire somewhere around
tslMlW there's a lot of smoke to be
seen. DESPITE ALL HIS ASSUK-
AjrCZ TO THE CONTRARY. JEFF
REALLY WANTS ANOTHER HAT
TDUft— AND WANTS ONE WITH
JOHNSON.
Os oourse, the big ex-champion
doesn’t Intend to take auy long
chances, and this early preliminary
work la for the purpose of finding out
Just what condition he can put him
self In for a ring battle.
Thera Is more thau one reasou why
Jeff should fight Johnson —reasons
from the Jeffries standpoint. His end
of the purse would be an amount
which the btg Californian could not
well overlook at thie time. Personally
h# would rather whip Johnson than
any othsr man hs ever fought, and
then the ex-champion would take a pe
culiar pride and reap an abundant fin
anclal harvest by regaining the title
from the present Negro champion.
Jeff wants the title to remain with!
the white race, and if his training
warrants his belief that he can again
get into condition it’s a safe wager
that Jeff and Jack will have it out In
the ring.
CHICAGO NEGROES
WILL BACK JOHNSON
CHICAGO, Jan. 13. —A purae of
SIOO,OOO, wherewith to back Jack
Johnson against any white pugilist in
the world, bids fair to be a rer’tyi
soon. Promluent and wealthy mem
bers of the colored race In this city
have such a project in mind, and in
dications now point to a speedy con
summation of the idea.
Leading colored men say that the
money will be bet against Jeffries Just
as quickly as against any other w'hile
pugilist. They profess hope that Jeff
will agree to meet Johnson, as in that
case they figure that odds will not
be demanded of them, while they are
aura the present champion could eas
ily win from the retired one.

MURPHY WILLING
TO PHY UP IF --
CHICAGO, Jan. 13 —President Mur
phy. of the Cubs nays he is going *o
give his ball players that slo.Otto he
promised them for winning the Na
tional league flag, but that he will do
It in such a way as to get the most
advertising. The West Side magnate's
scheme to ha\e a committee of hi*
players go before the commission and
ask that he be allowed to hand them
the bonus he considers a master stroke
In promoting publicity.
"I am going to get all the advertis
ing out of this gift of SIO,OOO that l
can,'’ said President Murphy yester-
I day.
"i think that's a great advertising
stunt. It's something like John T.
1 Brush s play in giving SII,OOO for
Pitcher Marquard. Now, everybody j
ought to know that Marquard. an In- ,
experienced minor league pitcher,
isn’t worth SII,OOO. But that was a I
great move for Brush and I have beeu
kicking myself because I didn’t pay i
$12.000 for the same player, although
he isn’t worth half that.”
“There Is no occasion for any play
ers to appeal to the commission." said
Ban Johnson. "Business between the
commission ar.d Mr. Murphy has al
ways been handled by Murphy himself
in the past. He knows that his re
quest for permission to give his team
SIO,OOO for winning the last National
league pennant will be granted. So
what la the use of dragging in the
players—most estimable men but nor
needed in tills transaction?

THE DETROIT TIMES: THURSDAY. JANUARY 14. 1909-
SURELY THIS WILL I
BE SOME SHOW 1
New York will contribute somewhat
to the tlnery at the Detroit automobile
show which will be held during the
week of Feb. Ip at the Wayne casino.
E. l.eKoy Pelletier, who is managing
1 the show for the local dealers, goes
u» New York Saturday and while there
he expects to absorb a few ideas which
will serve as a flulshlng touch to th-j
work here.
As it If the staff work for the col*
umus. ornaments, medallions and other
parts of the decoration is couiiug
through nicely. Men have beeu «u
gaged on it for weeks, aud Edward
Wagner au eminent New York sculp
tor. is designing some clever conceits
in clay. it is the first pretentious
bit of deco ration a Detroit show over
has known, and will open the eyes
of those who ure used to colored buu.-
ing effects.
The Detroit show will be better than
either of those in New York because
it will have cars from both brauches
and will not be a half-show, as each
of them necessarily must be Close to
( 200 automobiles will be ou the floots
of the caalno that week putting the

It has been stated several times
that Jeffries never weighed less ihuu
220 pounds in the ring When he
came east for the first time aud boxed
10 rounds with Bob Armstrong, a Ne
gro, at the old l.enox A. C . Jeff S'ai
led at 245 pounds stripped. But when
,he met Fitzsimmons at Coney island
in 181*9 he weighed about 20k. A
j week before this mill Jeffries, who
was training at Loch Arbor in New
Jersey, got on the scales one day in
his street clothes— trousers, sweater,
jacket and heavy soled shoes and
weighed exactly 212 pounds. He said
after he hud beaten Fitz that he would
never tight at so light a weight again,
and he kept his word, for he met
■Corbett. Sharkey and other pugilists
afterward weighing close to 225. When
'he knocked Corbett out in 10 rounds
, four years ago Jeff scaled at 220
pounds and never gave a finer exhi
-1 bition of skill. If he should decide
Ito fight Johnson the boilermaker
! would be compelled to reduce grad
ually. which would be accomplished
by long runs on the road, steady work
in the gvmnasium and dieting.
YOUNG SIS II
BOSTON CONTRACT
BOSTON. Mass.. Jan. 13 —Cy Young,
the greatest pitcher of them all. sent
in his signed contract for next season
today.
"So far as we know now.” Manager
Lake said. "Young will play with Bos
ton In spite ot rumors. The fact that
he signed the contract shows that he
Is satisfied."
PAYNE SIGNS HIS
CHICAGO CONTRACT
Fred Payne, of Detroit, received his
contract with the Chicago White Sox
on Tuesday and loaf no time In slgulng
it and forwarding It to President
Comlskey.
Payne was entirely satisfied wtih
the terms of his agreement and ex
pects to be one of the regular catchers
of the team next year, He feels that
he has had more than his ahare of
baseball mlsfortuue and believes that
he should have a good season in 1 901.
Those who recall his successful work
with Detroit until Illness arid broken
digits laid him low, will concur in this
belief
Nobody Wants Larry.

D. U. S. SHIFTS TEAM
FOR SAGINAW GAME
When Detroit l Diversity school
stacks up against Saginaw East Higu
in the D. U. S. gymnaslnm Friday
evening, it will appear with a team
considerably shifted. The most Im
portant change Is the placing of Ja< k
Miller, the teams star, at center,
where he has never played before. All
places look alike to Jack, however,
and It is believed that he will be aid.*
to score just as fust from that position
as from any other.

"SULLIVAN NEVER
DREW COLOR LINE"
Mil’ll l H DtltK.t.
By ARTHUR DUFFEY.
BOSTON. Jan. 13. — Despite many
statements to the contrary that have
been published. I fail to find any dis
tinct record where John L. Sullivan
in the heyday of his ring career drew
the color Hue. While It is true that
John never fought a colored man In
; the ring, It is a matter of record that
he signed to meet Godfrey, the old col
ored heavyweight. In this city; also
to fight Peter Jackson In San Fran
cisco.
Neither battle took place, but, ac
cording to my authority, this was not
I due to any color objections on the
part of Sullivan, but the threatened
j stopping of the battle by the police in
| the rase of Godfrey, and a disagree
ment of the promoters In at Frisco.
ATHLETfPALS
RIDICULE ROSE
...
By IGOE.
! NEW YORK. Jan. 13.—You should
hear 'em roar. The athletic pals of
Ralph Rose, 1 mean, when they heard
that Rose Is brushing up for a fling at
Jack Johnaon. One man prominently
connected with the A. A. 1. told me
yesterday that the Idea of ever whip
ping Rose into line was preposterous.
"Why, he Is the moat notorious
coward In the athletic world. He Is
a joke with all the boys when It comes
to a question of spunk. He's big and
powerful enough, but the smallest
sprinter in the world could walk up
and pull his nose and get away with
It. He seems to have no Idea of what
his giant frame and power are to him.
Otie the ship over to London he was
unmercifully goaded and tormented by
the little fellows, and he never once
I showed anything that resembled gump
tion. Ralph Rose has as much chance
of whipping Jack Johnson as little
Johnny (’onion has Why t’onion can
whip Rose himself ’

Where it Clarence Fox?
Anyone possessing the address of

ball player, will confer a favor on the
