Myl what a jar that gives usl Just imagine anybody being able to drag wiley Tommy Hyan through the ropes when "Red Roblert" sits in a corner of that ring. Somebody must have had a pipe dream. But iio: the Associated l'ress dispatch tells us that Jack Ilerlnn, manager of the Fort EIrie club, has wired Tommy at his home in Kansas City, asking him if he woubl fight Fitz if the club gmarantecd a $S-'5.o, purse. Ryan telegrltaphed hack that he woutdd agree to meet the ('ornish mtan on the oniditii n that the latter mtade the middileweight limit.

Will others who are enaritably inclined Just say they are sorry when a human being is sutlering a living death in a place not tit for a toad or I at to disell ilt Here are the facts: "Jockey" McCauley was once a splendid jockey. lie often rode on the Blutte track. Eight years ago he was terribly injured while riding a vicious horse in a hurdle race in Ana conda: his spine was fractured and the doctors thought lhe would die. To relieve his awful sulicring they gave him cocaine. He acquired the taste and is now a men ber of the ulnfortunate class comlonly called "dope fiends." lie lies oil a filthy cot in a Pl'lasant alley hovel, unable to move. Ilis only colpanlliOns are dope fiends, his only food--offal front the ash barrels. Ills back and legs are covered with bed sores. Some of thelt run pus, hut he is never attended. lie is dirtier than a hog in a wallow and lie cries all day for help, but there is no one to listen. If $zoo can be raised McCauley will be removed from his quarters in the reeking hovel and will be treated by a pIhysician. He has not long to live, but lie is human and the little time left to him on earth should be spent in comfort. His system requires a certain Iamllountl of the drug which has brought so many to the lowest depths, and if cared for int the future he will be given what he tieedi by someone In authority, If enough money can he raimed to re lieve McCauley for the prestt and to have his awful sores treated, an effort will he made to have the county take cars of him, possible use and the little fellow's suffer tng will be relieved. Small boys can make good bowlers. This was demonstrated the other night at the Pfister alleys when Herbert Tighe iAn John lHawkins did somle work. In the same game Hawkins made a score of at and Tighe aoo. 'This is splendid work. The boys are each is years old and play like old-timers. If they can beat the aoo mark now, what will they be able to do at ao? The ma:itch game betwen M|udro and Mc lMillan will take puace on the PIfister alleys 'Tuesday night, and the Thornton Wednesa day night of this week, five games on each alley.

Pi;tzsinimonis was not bitten by a pet mnoinkey as the dispatches would have ha4 is believe. The great fighter is now ini Illver and the following little item fromu the I)enver Post tells the truth: "'I he story sent throughout the country ;lnd publlished in the t'incinnati I:nqtuirer alrd other papers that Fitzsimmons was b)ttni by a pet nmonkey is iin keeping with the stories sentt from Ilutte that Munroe knocked Jeff downi.

TACOMA SECURES BACKSTOP KLING STAR CATCHER OF THE CHICAGO NATIONAL TEAM IS TO PLAY IN THE P. N. L. NEXT YEAR. BY ASSOCIATED PREs'. Tacoma, Wash., Jan. a6.-The Ledger will say today: John Kling, the star back stop of the Chicago National league team, has been signed by Manager B. E. McKib hen, to play the coming season with Ta. coma in the Pacific Northwest league. Kling is rated as one of the greatest young catchers in the baseball business and both the American and National league ac ents have been hard after him during the past winter, Ilh did practically all of the backstop work for Chicago last season. pie for me, and whenever we meet again I will show the public how easy he is."

There will be no more bulletins. The lights have gone out. Butte will have a chance to see the greatest trotter in the world this coming summer. 'this will be good news to the many race goers in this city, especially since it is rumored we will have no more race meets here. A dispatch front Toledo, Ohio, says: Cresceus, the king of trotters, will never again go as fast as he did last year. (George H1. Ketchum, his owner and driver, made the statement on his arrival in the city yesterday morning for a short stay, this being his first visit this season to the theaters in the circuit of the Valen title company, %f which he is president. "The reason that Cresceus will never go fast again," said Mr. Ketchum, "is be cause he will never have the opportunity. It takes time to prepare a horse, and with the stud duty in the spring I would hate but a short time to get him ready. "That is why I will never enter him in another race. His period in tile stud woultl call for a htasty preparat.on and it would weaken him. You know the old horse is c years of age, and he doesn't get into con.di tion as fast as these young fellows. So I announced he would never be entered itl another race. Tlhere is nothing in the talk about my horse racing I.ord Derby at Cleveland next summer. "I am now arranging a tour of the Northwest for next sumntmer. I will take ('rescues as far West as P'ortland and Vancouver, and with that trip finished we will have visited every quarter of this country. I had thought of taking the horse to Europe. but I ant now anxious to go to tlhe Northwest. "Ottn ebruary 5 we leave for Ottawa, where Crescets will go against the world's ice record. hlte best time made is 2.18Y4, and we are going to beat that. M1y horse has never had atly experiellnce in traveling ,,n ice, and with this soft weather I have had no chance to work him. The regular rubber-tired sulky will be used inl the ice contests. "I wil also drive I)e \egas, a .: t l4 pacer, inl three races there. tresceuls will also get away on the ice at Mlntreal. \\e will return Flebruary 25." (eorge I'Pheasey at 1t :3o Saturday night went down to the Pfister with three other gentlemen and rolled a game of ten-plns. .fr. Pheasey's friends rolled Si. 88 and 67. Mr. Pheasey made more than all three put together, having to his credit 243. He got in just In time to carry away the $5 cash prize given by the Pfister alleys each week for the high score. McKinley had 237 and it looked like he would save the s-spot but he didn't. Mr. t'heasey is a good howler, having bowled over aoo in perhaps So games last year. Just prior to his departure for Boulder aprings with his fighting protege. Aurelio Herrra, Biddy Bishop was interviewed at the Butte hotel by the sporting editor relative to different styles of fighting as employed by the present-day champtons. "The one great fault with most fighters is that they are inclined to fight too much on the defensive," said he. "In looking over the top-notchers you can easily see that a big portion of them are defensive scrappers, but the boys that like the heavy going are the ones in demand by club managers, and, as a matter of course, they are getting the money. People don't want to pay big idmission fees to see a couple of fellows spar, get away and block; they want to see them fight, and if pugilists ex pect to draw big houses they must expect to give the public what they want. Of course cleverness antd ring generalship cuts a big lot of ice, and I don't mean to say that it should be abandoned alto gether. A fellow can be aggressive and still employ clever footwork and all-round ring generalship. Jim Jeffries is a de fensive fighter, but he will mix at times. lie prefers the other fellow to carry the battle to him, and in this style he has been very successful; but how much more of an idol he would be if he was as aggres sive as old John 1.. was. It would have enriched hint to the extent of several thousand of dollars more than his present system has, for people would clamor for his services. Look at the big money Sul livan used to draw for little four-round goes. In his contests with Choynski and Corbett, Jeffries had to cut out his defen sive methods and bang away or he would have lost the decision on points. As it was, Choynski drew with himi, and Corbett would have defeated him if he had not got careless with victory staring hint in the face and courted-defeat in that twenty third round, "Jeffries' defensive methods won him his two victories over Fitzsimmons; he would have been defeated sure had he carried the fight to Fitz. Jim Cobett is a typical defensive fighter: he seldom mixes, yet is on top of his adversary all the time and is continually leading. His long suit is hit, block, side step and get away, and in the art of avoiding punishment he has no equal. Corbett can hit much harder than most people imagine. Yes, he will defeat Jeffries sure if they meet again; I know for a fact that Jim is in good shape and is anxious for a chance at Jeff. It is said that Corbett has never had a bloody nose, which is proof of how cleverly he has defended himself in battle. Bob Fitz simmons, Tom Sharkey and Peter Maher are not so careful and their style is to wade in and bang away, regardless of the punishment handed out them. Ruhlin is not altogether a defensive fighter, yet he is not an ag"ressive one. Tommy Ryan adopts slugging or clever methods, to suit the opponent, although he leans a bit to the defensive end. "Mysterious" Billy Smith is an aggressive fighter and has always been in big demand, even though (Continued on Page Nine.) For Excellence of Flavor For a healthy and nourishing beverage Try lontana's Leading Beer CE NT NNIAL FAST BOWLING IS OFTEN FAKED UP MANY ALLEYS NOT ON THE LEVEU AND SKATES ABOUND WHERE EVER THE PINS STAND UP. CORREAPONDeNCI or THE INTER MOUNTAINt. New York, Jan. *6.-The archdiocesan bowling tournament has been held for many years and antedates most of the existing tournaments. At the national convention of bowlers held in the West about two years ago the delegate from the Archdiocesan Union league (Catholio Young Men'p societies), moved that an inspector be appointed to visit the various alleys and see that the regulations were complied with, but the motion was voted down. The necessity for responsible inspection is recognised by those interested in clean sport. The high scores so frequently rolled nowadays may indicate an improvement in howling, but the use of pins smaller than the regulation pins, and the consequent change in the spots, are the real cause. Here lies the secret of the so-called fast alleys, according to a prominent alley proprietor. Records made on such alleys are worthless, but they are foisted upon the public as authentic. One might as well use a go-yard track to make too-yard records. Bowling as a sport can stand consider able cleansing. A match game for a stake' was rolled a few days ago on a certain alley that is fast acquiring a questionable reputation. Just before the game one of the contestants, who is an habitue of the alley, said to the proprietor: 'nIave you got up the ..eavy or the light pins?" "The heavy," respondc. the proprietor. "Put up the light," said the contestant. This conversation was overheard by a bystander, but did not reach the ears of the other contestant. ,he latter, of course lost the game and his money. 'I he moral here is plain: Keep your money in your pocket unless you are certain that "things are on the level." Snarks infest the bowling alleys as well as the deep seas, but they are a meaner lspecies. Il hey are really eneap "skates" with a shark s appetite, and any Sandy Hook fisherman will tell you that a sate is of no use except to steal bait. The proprietor of an alley owes it to his patrons to see that they are not buncoed, and if he fails to deal honestly with them it will not be long before his place will be classed among the "joints" and avoided by respectable people. SAY YOUNG CORBETT IS NOT THE MAN HE WAS Tim Sullivan Says McGovern Will Whip the Champion if They Ever Get Together Again. Says the Denver Times: The course which Young Corbett. cham pion featherweiht of the world, has been pursuing since he won that title has not gained him many admirers front a fight ng standpoint. There is no doubt that he has been neglecting his athletic work for his social duties, and there can he but one result tront following this course. There is probably not a better judge of fighters in the country than Senator Tim Sullivan of New York, and ever since Corbett won the championship from Mc Govern he has been boos.tinlg the game of the Denver lad as hard as he evtr boosted for anything, and has announced time and a.ain that Corbett could beat McGovern at any time at any weight. The New lork man was in Hlot Sprnigs when the champion met Austin Race, and he is now out with the statement that he be lieves that Terry McGovern can whip Corb)ett in six rounds. There must be something to back such an opinion fromt such a man. The story sent out of the tight showed that thie champion was in very poor form and swung wildly, without any idea of time or distance, but this was just a duplication of the work he has been doing in all his recent fights. He is a long way front bl'ing itt the condition in which a chamlpion should keep himself, and unless he takes a brace he will lose a great many imlore valuable friends. A talk from Tim Sullivan such as has been sent out all over the cotntry will do more to hurt the Denver boy than any thing short of an actual defeat in the ring. Corbett objects to criticism so strenuously that he a ill undoubtedly charge the New Yorker t ith knocking, but the story of tile fight will bear Sulli van out. Almost every dae there are new evidences that the chamnpion needs his old trainer, Johnnie Corbett, badly. It was believed at one time that John Corbett was not the righlit kind of a man to have charge of a fighter like (orbett because he did not have enoi(ughi infIluence over him, but compared with the influi ence which his successors have had, John Corbett was a czar. It is high time that the champion was taking a brace on the level, as he cannot afford to lose admir ers like Tim Sullivan. Pains in the Stomach.
