West Side Bantam Comes Baok Like a Champion Against
Popular Midget in Twelve Rounds, Offsetting Rushing At
tacks With Skillful Boxing and Hard Hitting.
By Vincent Treanor.
OE LYNCH, the west side bantam,
and Johnny Buff of Jersey City,
tn a match for the bantam' Cham
Plpnahlp la the noxt thing of Im
portance on the flstlc calendar. No
date has been sot, but Tex Rlckard
. let It be known laat night after Lynch
had beaten Midget Smith that ha trU
sign 'the pair up as toon aa possible.
"Then," he aald, "for the beat fight
between little men that haa ever been
seen anywhere' Rlckard was greatly
Impressed, by what he termed Lynoh's
comeback, lli'll beat anybody that
ha can atay away from for a couple
of rounds, for he aura U a finisher,"
'added the promoter.
Lynch held the bantam title once,
'taking It from Pete Herman, only to
lose It baok -to him. Herman then was
beaten-for the honors by Johnny Duff,
- Lynch fought Iwt night at the Oar
den In something like the stye that
woo him the MMe from Herman two
years ago, and, accordingly, game
little Midget Smith, was a badly beaten
ilyal at the end pf, twelve rounds. Joo
fought with Ills head as well aa his
hands from tl)e third round on, He
didn't make the mistake of fighting
Smith's way this time aa ha did when
(hey laat met. Instead he forced the
Midget to match, his boxing wtta with
the Lynch brand and they, weren't
good, enough.
Lynch really left-handed, his way
' to "victory In one of the snappiest
" bout between little men that has
been seen In a long wlule.' Ho pt his
right, go not more than half a dozen
times up to the tenth round, but each
time It lashed out ha hit the mark
like a sharpshooter,
Smith really won only three rounds
of the twelve. These ware the flrejt
and second and the fifth. Lynch won
the third, and the fourth was even,
but from the sixth to the finish the
' west alder waa well tn front.
Smith started out to make It a
rushing, crowding battle. He began
pounding Joe's ribs at close' quarters,
breaking from one clinch' and dvng
Into' another. Anything, t seemed,
to keep on top of Lynch whllo he
hot rights and lefts into Joe's body
as If he figured, that was the Lynch
weab. spot. Joe tried reselling in
,wlth Tils long left for the face, but he
never got, back, to position without a
hard counter by $mttt). In the sec
ond It was much the same. Joe overt
reached with a left -for the face fad
Smith planted, his right solidly on the
chin. Joo tapped Smith's face With a
left' twice after this, but be cquldn't
escape the Smith speedy right crpits
, to the law. TheMJdget then pounded
Joe with two more rights on the jaw
and It began' tq. took as If Lynch
would again prove a victim of the
Bmtfa style.
But enough of that stuff, probably
ehoiucht Joe. as he 'came out for the
third. He nut four' straight lefts to
the Midget's face, .and hooked the
sesae band to the boar- was m.
tag It a boxing match now. Three
snore stiff lefts to the face by Lypoh
', had' Smith flustered until he sue
' needed In curving an Inside right on
- Joe's chops as he came, reaohlng (n
w)tb the hts left. ,
After this round Lynch depended
almost solely on bis left, and those
tbaf: reached Smith's face had 'Plenty
. of snap and force to them. The Mld
"' get had little choice in the matter of
fighting now. He played for joe's
ribs, now and then catching Joe with
rianelnr rights on the Jaw. It was
p!ajn, however, tbaf; ft long range
w. pmlth waa cnaing nimseii us against
. It. "
r.Vnch didn't really go at top speed
unUl the seventh. I?o hod Smith
ewlnglng wildly for the Jaw then and
. mjsslng, while' he atabbed the mouth
. with his left until there was a crim
son streak from the Mldgofs lower
tin runnlncr down his chin. Joe out
manoeuvred and outspeedod Bmlth,
and once when, the Midget swung with
his left and then with hit righ.t Lynch
was very much out of the way.
Joe kept up his left stabs to the
Mlderet's face and began bobbing all
around. Smith, plainly up In the air,
let go a long right. It htt Lynch on
the jaw, but Joe was more than arm's
length away. Joe stabbed and
stabbed with his left, but the Midget,
always willing, finally got over a nice
right cross to the jaw. He followed
with a right to the body, but Joe got
hts piston-rod left working again, and
Smith waa away off In distance with
Jen ana right swing xor me neaa,
. scrappy bantams at the bell, but they
continued a wicked exchange long
. after It rang. There, was no blaming
either for the slight infraction of the
rules, so they shook and called It even,
- Vrtm then pn the fight waa Lynch's,
although there never was a moment
when Smith wasn't In there doing a
lot of stuff and dangerous,
Toward the end Joe began pep
per)ng Smith with his right and
onoe nearly turned Smith around
With one on the Jaw which followed
J left to the mouth. Joe repeated
ONLY PiBEW $17,604.40.
The twelve-round bout between
Joe Lynch and Midget Smith at
Madison Square Garden last
night, which was won by the for
mer, only drew a crowd of 0.500,
of which f,67 paid for tloketa.
The gross receipts, including the
Government tax of 10 per cent.,
brought the gate up to $ 1,804.40.
The net receipts amounted to
$16,101.80, from which each
fighter received 17 per cent.,
whch gave them $2,660.(8 apiece.
The State drew down C per cent,
of $16,004, which gave It $100.20.
The tickets were sold for the
show, Including the Government
tax, as, follows:
1,938 at 81.10 (2,120.60
610 at
1,044 at
729 at
. 7,480.00
and Smith took on the look of a beaten
Lynch showed unmistakable superi
ority In the twelfth and last round.
He bounced here and there around tho
Midget like a Jumping jack, hitting
him from all angles, and finally cut
ting a nasty gash under Smith's left
eye. Thero was no doubt about the
verdict even before Joe; Humphries an
nounced It. Lynch had won and no
one knew It better than Bmlth.
Two fighting fools, Johnny Coonoy
and Jack Stark, met In ono of tho
prenms. wnal tney didn't know
about the art of hit, stop and get away
tboy made up ln speed. Both swung
their arms continuously for general
results and every punch landed with
resounding thud. They went six
slashing rounds and the Judges and
rereree very properly called It a draw.
Kid Sullivan of Brooklyn and Bat
tling Reddy of Harlem were the scml
flnallsts. Sullivan weighed 127 and
Reddy 12 even. Reddy Is a trickster
and because, of a superior knowledge
of this end of the game held Ills own
until toward tho end of twelve lonr
rounds. Then Sullivan camo to tho
fore. He didn't havo enough left to
put. Reddy away but he was entitled
tp the declsqn the Judges gavo him.

called any minute, the 'enemy forged
to tho front. This forging was due
to a wet, soggy boll that played havoc
with the control of Joe Bush and of
sundry Inflelders. The pill continu
ally slipped out of their hands and
skidded. The cause mattered not Tho
result counted.
There were two on bases In the sev
enth Inning and none out. The Yanks
were one run behind. Ruth was at
bat. The game was likely to be called
any minute.
The moment the Bambino appeared
at the plato outfielders began back
ing up to the fence. It was possible.
of course, hat Ruth might' polctlie
old pill Into the stands. But the
Babe took no such chances. He delib
erately pulled his gtroko, trying for a
short hit over the Infield.
Luckily, tho ball went Into right
centre Instead of left It hit wlr-o
the enemy outfielders wero ot sta
tioned and rolled to the fence for a
three bagger. Two runa scored.
The Yanks were In the lead. Ruth s
act of self-socrlflco, as he had In
tended the fact that ho had played
for the team Instead of himself had
won tho ball gamo.
As we have said, Ruth Is above all
a ball player. Had he playcu foi his
record as a home run hitter his sldo-
wlso wallop would not have won that
ball game. Did he think only cf him
self, he would not be a great per
sonality. That's the thing about Ruth
that many people do not understand.
In an early Inning tho fourth, to
bo exact tho mighty Bambino really
gavo the cuo as to what ho Intended
to do for tho afternoon.
At that moment tho Red Sox wero
threo runs In the leud. Joe Bush had
been pitching as hard as he could, but
notning seemcu to mutter, a iuu.y
stab was Just as good as a scientific
Ward started some trouble for tbe
Yanks with a clean Blngle.
Hit It In the standi" the gang
yelled to Ruth. "Bust one, Babe!"
But not so. Uaue is a ball player.
Sensing trouble J. Collins, the Red
Sox right fielder, backed himself
squarely against the fence. Ho
thought, as did the crowd, that Babe
would take a sock from but shoe
Babo has a baseball brain. In-
Ktend of taking his "Morlarty, as
expected, he snapped at tho ball, a
regular Wllllo Kceler cut, and poked
a single over Del Pratt's head. J: Col
lins was caught flat In his tracks tmay
back against the fence. Tho drive put
Ward on second, though he could
have gone to third. Aaron played It
Frank Baker, following tho Babe's
load, did exactly the same thing. Ho
choked his bat and lowered his range
to a single, again catching Mr. Col
llns far back. Tho upshot of this
was that tho Yanks scored a couplo
of runs and got within shooting dls
tanco of tho goal.
Babe had played ball for the Yanks
Instead of for Babe. Tho champs won
themselves a ball game.
"Say," Bald Miller Hugglns after
the game, "a lot of you fellows don't
seem to got the Babo right. I, don't
care whether he ever hits a homo run
or not. It 'Is tho singles and the dou
bles and tho real baseball that he
plays that mako him worth a lot of
money. Ruth Is a bull player at
heart. Ho Is one of the best ball
players In America. Sometimes
would like you fellows to forget his
home run record and consider him on
his merits as an everyday working
ball player."
Tho Babo was not alone In his plans
for winning this ball game, played In
a Bteady downpour of rnln. Ho was
nbly aided und abetted by Aaron
Ward, Frank UtiUer and Wullv Plnn.

Suspension of Smith Will Give
Young Alex Gaston a Chance
to Make Good Behind the Bat
for the Giants.
By Robert Boyd.
BOSTON, Mass., June 2. Since
tho world's champion Giants fell Into
their present slump that Is slowly but
surely forcing them to relinquish
their leadership tn the National
League race, Manager McQraw has
coolly and collectedly drawn all his
resources and reinforcements In to
stave off constant defeats.
The Inability of Earl Smith to ad-
hero to the training rules of the club
has proved costly to tho world's
champions, Smithy was a clever
catcher, an excellent batter witn an
arm of ateel but short on head work.
The rough and rugged Arkansas
youth, once a great asset to the New
York Club, now becomes a liability.
Before Smith was suspended by the
manager of the Giants, Kaiser WU
helm was about to hand ovor "Butch"
Honllno for him. But after Manager
Wllhelm heard of Smith's constant
breaking of the training rules, he
said: "Tho deal is off."
Now Smith will lie deadwood on the
roster of the Giants aa no major
leacue manager wants a player of
Smith's 'type. If McQraw haa failed
In his attempts to keep the blond
haired catcher on the straight and
narrow path, what chance have some
of tho other weak-kneed leaders. 7 So
the problem of Smith will bo one of
srroat concern to Mcuraw,
Much of a loss as it will be to me
world's champions and Smithy him
self, there Is a certain catcher of the
Giants who has warmed me Dencn
for the last two seasons who is going
to profit by the Indiscretions of
Smith. He Is Alex Gaston, once of
the Milwaukee Club of the American
Association. Out In that class minor
AA league this etocky backstop was
a sensation and thero are many good
Judges of catchers who think he will
continue his greatness far Into the
National Leaguo beforo bo concludes
his major league days.
Frank. Snyder will be unable to
catch all the games that are to be
played and Smith will not be rein
stated by McQraw for como time.
This may mean that Qaiton will
head Into the game in tne near future
McQraw thinks welt of Gaston and It
is a wonder np never gavo mm more
chances to work behind the bat.
Strange as It may seem, the Giants
have not a catcher, Including Smith,
who Is fast on his feet. Bnyder, Has.
ton and Smith are all clever catchers
but are throo of tho slowest major
league plnyera n their feet.
If Qaston comes through McQraw
will havo "pulled" another clever bit
of ganewlng his forces to meal U

be settled for a while at least. Bill
Cunningham has made himself a fix
