New 'ork, Dec. 1.-There's trouble
brewing for some of the wrestlers-if
any of them want it. Tarro tMiyake,
'the great Japanese jiu-jitsu man, who
has been beating everyone in England
for 10 years, is here with one of the
most widespread challenges ever is
sued. Tarrp Miyake looks the part.
He's a head taller than most Japanese
'athletes and weighs 160 pounds, a
large part of which weight is com
posed of neck.
They say Miyake can let a street
car run over his neck and then get up
with a smile. He's always smiling,
"I have come to America to wrestle
anyone," said Miyake. "I should like
to wrestle either Gotch or Zbyszko. I
challenge them. If either Gotch or
Zbyszko will meet me-their wrestling
against m'y jiu-jitsu--I will make anyI 1
wager they want. I agree to beat
either in five minutes or forfeit the <
side stake. I issue the same challenge,
to any of the big men. I weigh 160 1
pounds, but if I can use jiu-jitsu it i
makes no difference how big they are. i
In England, I have beaten all comers (
for 10 years and have never been de
feated. Jiu-Jitsu is allowed there.
"If none will meet me, I am willing
to wrestle catch-as-catch-can style. Ii
should like to meet George Bothner
and agree to throw him three times id
an hour that way."
When asked if he had ever tackled
Hackenschmidt on the other side
Miyake grinned more widely than
Hack Backed Down,
"When Hackenschmidt was at the
Empire music hall in London," hei'
said, "I jumped on the stage and chal
lenged him. I offered to make a match
with him right then for any stake he
-wanted, jiu-jitsu against his wrestling,
and to beat him in five minutes
forfeit the money. Hackenschmidt's
men tried to push me off the stage
and Hackenschmidt said 'no, no.' Also Ii
I challenged Johnson in London andl
offered to let him box or wrestle, and
agreed to heat hint in five minutes. i
would make him any bet, but lie
wouldn't do it. They are afraid of the
jiu-jitsu, as they don't know what I t
could do. I could beat Johnson very
Miyake is quite a hero in England.
When he arrived, another Japanese
named Tani had beaten a nnumber of
English wrestlers and seemed to beI
invincible. Miynke beat Tani Casily.

IDr. E. J. Stewart, coach of the Ore
gon Agriculturatl college team, has
signed two games in California in 1915,
one with Pomona college, November
2-., and one with the University of
Southern California at San Francisco,
November 27. That means that if
Washington insists upon meeting a
conference team Thanksgiving day
next year, either Idaho or Whitman
must be brought to Seattle. Neither
team has ever been . serious con

neither would draw very large crowds.
For that reason, it looks as if Wash

Ne\w York, Dec. 1.-There is now a
loud and continued howl for decision.
in boxing bouts in Wisconsin, .whicl,
are operated under the same sort of
Slaw as prevails in New York. The
differences of opinion which grew out
of the recent bout between Freddie
Welsh and Charley White was the
cause of it. No westerner can see
where any harm could.be inflicted on
the manly art by a rule allowing the
referee to decide the winner.
When the howl grows a bit louder
throughout the country, in states
where boxing is tolerated, the various
boxing commissions may conclude
that the rendering of decisions is one
thing which will save the sport.
:Man will ever err. At the ringside
in Milwaukee, there were probably
two dozen newspaper men from vari
ous parts of the country. When they
got through summing up, the fight
opinion was about equally divided on
the result. Nearly as many declared
White the victor as declarer for the
Briton. Not quite, but very close,
about one-third said tha thing was a
Scribes Abused.
There was a whole lot of betting on
the result, and right away those a\\'
ful losers began saying things about;
the men who decided against their
money. It w'ould be much better to:
have one lone man accused of every
thing under the sun than have a whole
community of sporting writers con
demned as first-class burglars. Evenj
with a referee giving a decision, there)
would be few losing bettors who would.;
think much of th. officialsnchance in
the hereafter. It's often bleen said
that a gambler is a good, igaine fellow,
who takes his losses with ,the same
good grace that he takes h~i~8winnings.
That was said a long tim ago, but
not in this twentieth centulr:.
There are more substa nial argu
ments in favor of decision.- the ref
eree than there are again8 t. If it's
fear of encouraging betting' that de
lays such action, the crmlnissiona
should not lose sight of the4*act that
betting in New York state is cbtntrary'
to law. There, too, is a rule, which is
supposed to be posted conspicuously
in all clubs, forbidding wagers being'
made on bouts, a violation of which is
punishable by a severe sentence,
As it is, there is just as much bet
ting on various bouts todlay as there
would be if a referee handed, down de
cisions. The one danger lies in se
curing the right men to judge the con
tests. There are just as many honest
men today as there ever were and
some of these honest men are not
ashamed to say that they know box
ing and would have no scruples
against officiating in a contest. Of
course, today in New York we have
some fellows acting ias referees who
woud scuttle a ship, raid a church, or
even strangle a child, but their re
moval would be an easy matter, and
the board of referees could be made
up of men beyond' reproach.
The western writers are going to
keep yelling for decisions in bouts,
and the chances are they will win
Chicago, Dec. 1.-Thle fate of the
surplus Federal league ball players,
left jobless by the decision of the
league to carry only 20 men for each
club, probably will be decided at a
meeting of the National B3aseball com
mission in New York next Monday.

summoned to a meeting of the copn
mission which will he held just a day
before the annual league meeting.
Several ball players who were on
Federal pay rolls, last year, but who
have been notified that they will not
be needed in 1915,. have applied to
clubs in organized baseball for jobs.
The commission, it was said tonight,
would consider whether to welctome
these players back to their fold, or
whether to discipline, them, for de

"Ever and anon since the an
