DON'T KNOW IT ALLnoer
Many Experienced Referees' Show
Ignorance of Rules of Pugil
ism, Says Omaha Kid.
Siler Wrong in Stopping Jeffries
Sharkey Bout When Jeff
Lost His Glove.
"It is funny how many of the. finer,
points of the rules of pugilism are un
known to some referees," said Oscar
Gardner, the "Omaha Kid," recently. "I
do not mean novices, but men who have
had experience in decldln.gr. bouts, and
wh om you would expect to be fully up in
"Now, recall the Jeffries-Sharkey bout
at Conev Island about four years ago,
when Jeffries lost h is glove, and George
Slier, one of the best referees in the
country, stopped the round to let him
regain the mitt. Siler made'a bet of
$1,000 with Hone st John Kelly that his
ruling w as right on that point, and they
left it to me to decide. As soon as I ex
plained the matter Siler agreed that he
had lost. Here la the point:
"When a fighter loses his glove he
must be allowed to go on fighting with
his bare hands. The reason is this: Each
man's second is supposed to tie on the
gloves of his opponent, and he is sup
posed to make sure that they are tied
securely. Then if the glove comes untied,
it is the fault of the other man's second,
and he must suffer for it. As soon as a
fighter drops a glove, the referee should
pick It up and ascertain whether the
strings have been cut. If they have not,
but have come untied, the fight must go
on, one man fighting bare handed.
"Here,is another point, which is seldom
observed: One second for each fighter is
supposed to stand in the corner of his
opponent all during the fight. H e is not
to leave the corner, because then he
would carry tips to his own principal, bu,
lie stays there, until the fight is over, to
ee that there is no crooked work, suoh
as untying a glove, or anything of that
Corbett Still After Jeffries.
In England no champion pugilist can
retain his title without defending it with
in a. reasonable time of receiving a chal
aenge from any fighter whose record en
titles him to serious consideration. There
Is no such thing as waiting two years to
arrange a match, to allow the champion
to finish a theatrical engagement. If the
holder of the title fails to come to the
scratch the belt goes by default.
Things are different in America, as
everyone knows. That is why two spec
tacles are just now occupying the atten
tion of the fighting world. Tt is a ques
tion which is the more amusing. Corbett's
frantic efforts to get on a match with
Jeffries or the wild attempts of Young
Corbett and McGovern to find a place
where they can dispute the title and the
long end of a $5,000 purse.
Jeffries' latest communication says that
he is making big money on his tour with
Fitz: that he can see no reason why he
should do battle with Corbett again/ and
that he does not think the public expects
it of him.
m Correct In One Point.
What the public expects, of course, and
what it wants, are two different things.
Jeffries Is probably correct in his diag
nosis of what is expected of htm. He has
shown so plainly during the last few
weeks that he does not want-to fight any
body, that, there is only ground for one
kind of speculation. There is no doubt,
however, that, there are many persons
who would like to see Jeffries and Cor
bett come together. Two or three good
heavy weight contests a year arc none too
many, and the only show for a first-class
mill Is to get Corbett and Jeffries together.
Corbett couldn't knock the bpilermaker
out in a. thousand years, but he would
sta nd a good show of getting a. decision,
and would make things lively for Jeff as
long as he kept away from the champion's
Moreover. Corbett is just now the only
worthy opponent for Jeffries, unless a
third bout with Fitzsimmons should be
arranged, and that, in all probability,
would not prove a good drawing card.
In view of Jeff's two victories, of the
btory of fake following their last mee t
ing, and of the fact of their combination
on this last barn-storming tour. McCoy
probably would keep clear of Jeffries none
Of the light heavyweights appear to want
any of the champion's game, Kuhlln and
Sharkey are dead ones, and Jack Mun
roe. who would prove a good drawing
card, isn't ready to fight yet. Still, as
long as Jeff keeps on making money on
the road, there isn't much chance of get
ting him into the ring again.
Munroe Is Well Advertised.
This same Munroe, by the way, IB get
*tng an immense amount of free adver
tising in N ew York, and he certainly
ought to be worth $1,000 a week to the
jRoad to Ruin company, or any other the*
fctrical venture. Perhaps it would be bet
ter to say that Clark Ball is worth that
much, for it is easy to see Balls fine
Italian hand behind the press notices Mun
roe has been getting.
Some of the N ew York dailies, not con
tent, with publishing Munroe's face, his
full figure, his different punches, and va
rious boxing attitudes, have split the
physiognomy of the miner into sections,
and published learned dissertations upon
the physical and mental qualities shown
by his eyes. nose, mouth, etc., each dis
sertation accompanied by a cut of the
particular feature mentioned. They have
a dictation of Munroe's own story of his
fight with Jeffries, and lengthy biogra
phies (probably written by Ball, but signed
l " SATURDAY - EVENING,' *- '
by Munroe, and e\idently paid for), also
th statement that Munroe neither smokes
drinks. One paper prints a two-col
utnn editorial, drawing a moral lesson
from Munroe's tempeia te habits and his
gi'eat physique Did any one e\er hear
of a new pugilistic star that had e\er
smoked or drunk? Corbett ne\er smoked
or drarik (if jou belie\e what you hear)
until he lost the title Fitz didn't, Jeffries
didn't. Terry .McGovern didn't, and a lot
more can be mentioned in the same class.
How easy it is, if you know how to
Meanwhile Terry McGovern is after
Young Corbett and Corbett is after Mc
Govern. They might have put on a bout,
in Rhode Island, but a young amateur
unfortunately was killed in a contest
there, and.the governor said Nay, Nay!
It, looks very much as If Young Corbett
might hold the championship indefinitely
if he continues to be shunned by the au
thorities ,of the different commonwealths.
THREE FAST COAST BOXERS
Nell, Hanlon and Foley Are Promising
Men Jn Their Classes.
The Pacific coast has furnished more*
ring champions than any other section of
this broad land. James J. Jeffries, James
J. Corbett, Joe Choynskl. Jimmie Britt,
Abe Attell are among the first-class mem
bers of pugdom, who were born and
brought up in sunny California.
Just now Frankie Neil. Eddie Hanlon
and Harry Foley are the three most pro m
inent members of fistlans in California.
Neil is the bantam weight who recently
lost to Harry Forbes, and last week put
out "Brother Clarence," who was sub
stituted for Harry when the latter was
"doped" and unable to perform. Barri ng
Harry Forbes, Neil has proven his com
plete superiority over the other 110-pound
boys in the far west. ,. ,
Eddie Harilon is a featherweight, and
has won a lot of battles during the past
eighteen months. H e is now matched to
meet Abe Attell.
Harry Foley recently gained promin
ence by knocking out At Neil, who was
considered a top-notcher among the wel
terweights. Foley is a sure confer, and
will be winning his share of the battles in
the 145-pound division.
Neither one of the trio has yet fought
in the middle west or east. It won't be
long, though, before they are brought
this way. Manager Haughton of the
West End club of St. Louis, is extremely
anxious to put on both Hanlon and Neil.

We readily imagine what Elmer E. Shan

be sent out and accepted by the press

that they would not hold a live bird event

CUT OUT DISTANCE FLAG
H.-K. Devereux Thinks It 1$ Useless in
IT. K. Devereux. the Cleveland amateur
reinsman. believes that in order to make
amateur, races fill the place they ought to
in public esteem, there should be no bet
ting on them, and there should be nodis
tance flag. He asserts that with the flag
out of consideration, the question of lay
ing up heats can be easily settled by dis
qualifying any horse that is obviously laid
up. The objection to the distance flag is
found in the disgrace which, in the eyes
of an amateur, is attached to being dis
tanced. No one is better qualified to tell
what course should be taken to increase
the interest in amatur racing than is Mr.
Devereux, and if his advice is followedi
no very glaring errors will be made.

out the bank fishing, the' boat about a

the woods behind us came a long wailing
cry. It was too dark to see, but I knew
without asking that BilPs hair w as stand

"'Must be a panther.' said Joe, try
ing to act as scared as Bill was. Then
Joe and I told a few pipes about men
we had known that were killed by pan
thers, and how the beasts would creep
up behind a man and grab him.
"Bill suggested that we go back to
the boat, but we laughed, him out of it
H e w as ready to drop right then, but
didn't want us to catch on. Then Joe
whispered to me: 'Next time. we hear
that drop our poles and cut for the boat.'
"We did, and got twenty yards' start
before Bill noticed we ' were gone. Then
maybe he didn't hot foot after us. He
came boiling up the gang plank Into the
cabin forty miles an hour, gasping. "The
beast followed me right, up the plank.'
"In the morning Bill bet" Peg Sharp
a dollar Peg couldn't tell him what the
thing was. "It was a screech owl, you
ninny.' said Peg.
" 'Take the money.' said Bill, 'I'd have
given $20 to know if I had to.' "

club's insurance of Infielder Wallace's
life as a protection against loss of a large

While the records ma de last week in
the league games were not so sensational
as those of the week before, the bowling

Judging from the present standing of
the contestants, it will take an average
of 185, or pretty near that, to get a place
on. tne Indianapolis team. with the
schedule more than half over there are
five men above that mark, and others
whose reputation justifies the belief that
they will go over 185.
