New York, April 1R.--In a ragged gamne ot Soullth field today, tHa rvard defeated Coluntbiai, G to 4. I_ - ----- T - *1 I~i< f during the lanst three days. On Wlttlnestdal he was hit once by the pitchuhr and received a rap in the rils \ ohen he was standing on third base. (In Thursday, Annis hit him once in the ribs and once in the foot. The bhw in the foot was painful and yes torday a peg to second caught the (ieruan in the same spot. When one of the pitchers cracked him on the arm, he almost turned in his suit. If this sort of thing keeps up for an other weck I)asc'h will be in the hos lital when the seasoin opens. Some of Fred ('arman's admirers who were sitting in the bleachers dur ing the pIractice started a heated argu ment concerning the speed of the big follow. 'They declared that Carman c(an beat anyone in Missoula in a century dash. Somte university students were sitting in tlh stands and they rose to atnntoulnce that C'arman could never catch Jimmny Brown. The argument is really an old one, for speculation concerning the relative athletic ability of such ball players as Cobb and such attlets as Thorpe will never cease. A good t any people say that the major leaguets hold the finest athletes in the worll, while others support the famous amnateurs. It may be that a race can he arranged between Brown and Car man in case the varsity hall team plays the Highlanders next week. It would he a big attraction. }Brown is the fast est man in the state in the century sprint and Carman can beat any man in the Highlander club by yards. COAST LEAGUE Standing of the Clubs.

FRISCO FIGHT FANS FAVORING WOLiCAST San Francisco April 1 .-Ad Wol gait, former lightweight champlion of the world, and "Harlem Tommy" Mur ph)y Vwill meet here tomorrow in a 20-1 rontld bout. A match with Willie Ritchie. who holds the lightwveight title, hangs on the outcome of the battle. The betting remained at 10 to 8, favoring Wolgast, tonight, but there was no strong sentiment one way or the other. It is thought 1lurphy's ad tmirers have been holding out for longer odds. Since January of 1910 the reciord looks give Murphy cretlit for 30 bouts, but in none of them tdid he secure, a I knockout. In Vilgast's last three years rl' fighting he has aehie ved seven knockouts. WESTERN LEAGUE Standing of the Clubs. Clubs- Wan. Lost. Pet.

BLANK DEVELOPED HIM Hamiltonians Remember That When Bush First Appeared at Training Camp Peerless Leader Declared Him a Second Walter Johnson. Hamilton, April 18.-(Special.)-The splendid showing made by Pitcher Leslie ,Bush against the Boston cham pions yesterday was the subject of much comment here today by fans who are interested in the former Mis soula player. Bush reported to Man ager Ilaun.kenship little more than one year ago on the local grounds. Many fans of this city recollect the Impres sion the speed-boy made locally when Blankenshipi first sent him into the box. As a local fan put it this morn ing, "Bush' had everything but form." The foxy Missoula manager realized this before Bush had heaved three halls across the plate. The second day that Blush reported his manager went into the center of the diamond with the Brainerd lad and started his work of making a top-notch heaver out of the promising youngster. Men were put onto the bases and Bush was told to pitch. .After this practice Blankenshir p was heard to remark:. "'That boy llush has everything that Walter Johnson had when he went up. Hughie ('ampleoll discovered a future big leaguer when he dug Bush out of the bushes in Minnesota, unless I miss my guess." It would seem that Bush started from that day to make good his manager's assertion. L6Cal fans have been mulch interested this spring in Bush's work, and all are pulling for his appearance as a wilnning pitcher. in the world's series this fall. BLACKSMITHS 'GATHER.
