NEW YORK. June 1.?John A. Johnson, leavyweight champion of the world, re ently accepter! an invitation from the National Sporting Club to see the ten -our,d bout tonight between his most angerous rival, Samuel Langford. esq., ic.d Farmer Jim Smith of West theater, i rugged white hope. The big negro Joesn't want to be called "Jack" or "LIT Arthur" any more, but refers to himself is "John A. Johnson"?more dignified, lie ays. and in keeping with the custom of ormer champions, John L Sullivan, tames J. Corbett, Robert Fitzsimmons Uid James J. Jeffries. Bitter words have passed between ?lessrs Johnson and Langford within the ast two weeks regarding the old topic, . fight for the former's title, either in England or France. Langford wanted to lave Johnson at the ringside tonight for everal reasons. and that is why he re lueeted Manager O'Rourke to extend a ormal invitation to the champion. In he hr?t place Langford was eager to ihow Johnson how easily he could dis <ose of Smith, also how much he had mproved since the memorable scrap In "helsea. Mass . a half dozen years ago, ?hen langford. then a welterweight, mocked Johnson down for the count of tine tn one of the early rounds. Then t*;ain l^an??f?rd desired to make a few emarks in Johnson's hearing regarding proposed match, which, he believed, loukl place John A. on the defensive. But Champion Johnson sent word to ?lanaeer O'Rourke yesterday that he vould be unable to accept his hospitality, > he had suddenly been called to Chi cago. When I^angford heard the news he laughed and said: "Misto Johnson doe.sn't like to be around where I am!" This pleasant controversy adds interest to the Langford-Smith bout, whether Johnson appears or not, for Smith, who Jias shown wonderful improvement, actu ally believes that he has a chance to win. The members of the club have seen Smith in several battles. More than a year ago, when a mere greenhorn, the Westchester farmer liad nerve enough to go up against the late Stanley Ketchel. He also had sufficient courage to rush in tvlth a terrific attack, which, during the first four rounds had Ketchel in a state of worriment. But lack of experience and overanxiety proved Smith's downfall, for he suddenly left himself open for a hook on the jaw that quickly put him down and out. Smith did not lose heart, though, and kept on struggling for a front p!a'-e in the light heavyweight di vision. He improved rapidly and two weeks ago he handed a severe defeat to Morris Harris of Philadelphia, who was stopped bj* I^angford two years ago in seven rounds. Smith therefore believes that he will make It extremely interesting for I^angford, especially in view of the fact that the Tar Baby probably is over confident. Langford cannot afTord to stall In this affair, and by defeating Smith in decisive fashion he will strengthen h:s position in demanding a mill with Johnson. Lang ford is regarded as the* best heavyweight in the ring with the possible exception of Johnson, and his appearance is awaited with unusual interest. THIS DAY IN BASE BALL.

TECH AND WESTERN WILL DECIDE TITLE TOMORROW What Promises to Be Great Scholastic Bat tle to Be Played on Georgetown Field?Other Amateur Gossip. Tomorrow at 3 o'clock in the afternoon Jt is probable that one of the greatest scholastic games ever played in the Dis trict of Columbia will begin- After los ing1 the first game of the season to West ern, Technical High has come to the front, and owing to the loss sustained by Western in the game against Eastern is to get its much coveted chance to play again for the championship, and the two mentioned teams will fight it out tomor row for the premiership of the scholastic league. To.attempt to predict a winner would be impossible, because there are so many things which govern the result of a scho lastic game that form is a very poor criterion by which to judge it. Tech ad herents have claimed from the first that if they got another chance at Western they would show the Red and White that the first victory won by that team was in the nature of a fluke. Whether the Man ual Trainers will be able to make good their boast remains to be seen. Over at Western they are saying nothing, but there is not much time being lost in the way of preparation. If Western had the team which first appeared against Tech it would have about an even chance, and at that, even without Howard, It cannot be seen where Tech has so much on the Western nine as a team. It is true that Western did not hit Eastern, but there is not one chance in a hundred of Garland getting away as easily as did Lignon, not withstanding the fact that he ia con ceded to be a better pitcher. On the other hand. Tech has made such an excellent showing in the games it has played recently that it would seem that It stands a good chance to win. It shut out Cathedral School, beat the Preps and won from Eastern, ft to 1. It is almost sure that Garland will go to the mound for the Tech nine, while Holden will again be depended on to take up the burden of box duty for Western. Garland got away to a poor start when he faced Western in the first game of the season, and what he will do on his I return trial against the same team will be interesting to note. In the first game Holden had the Tech batters at his mercy, but the Tech crowd claimed that it could hit him easily if given another chance. The grandstand play which Tech is making now in regard to saying that It wants Western to use Howard is rather ridiculous on the face of it, and seems to be a sort of lame excuse for the stand which it has taken in the matter. How ard has been declared by the board of principals of the high schools to be in eligible to play in the high school series, and with that knowledge to back It there is no doubt that the Tech coach is per fectly safe in making the statement that he would like Western to use Its regu lar shortstop. Probably the game that McArdle put up around the short field in the game against Eastern influenced the declara tion. It is certain that no other shortstop could have done better, the Western cen ter fielder who was sent in to take the place of Howard getting everything that came his way in good style. If the Walford club is able to win Its game tomorrow from the New Wlllard team it will go into the lead in the Com mercial League, and if it doe* it will be a hard matter for any of the other clubs in the circuit to displace it. The St. Martin's club In the Inde pendence League seems to be coming into its own. The Churchmen are making the spurt which has been expected of them all season, and it is not going to be easy for any team to stop them, once they are fairly started. It seems that several of the defeats which were sustained by the club dur ing the first two weeks of the season were the result of the failure of star players to report for the games in which they were depended on to play. Four Catholic University men were on the nine and It was only once in awhile that they showed up, although they were depended on by the St. Martin management. The controvesy which arose recently in regard to the eligibility of the St. Mar tin's players seems to be rather out of place. The names of the players in ques tion, who, Jt was claimed, were played without being registered, were placed in the hands of the .president seven days before the required time, and under the constitution of the league they were in good standing and eligible to participate In games in that circuit. The Walford club is apt to be minus some of its stars tomorrow, when it lines up against the Willard team in the Com mercial League. Two or three of the men on the Technical High team are members of the Sporting Goods Men's club, and if they are not able to play it Is more than probable that the team will be consider ably weakened. The Walford club will not be lacking in Rood twirling material, though, as it has Herrell to depend on, and that gent has done some mighty good work this season. It is more than probable that the West ern batting order will receive a shake-up before the game tomorrow. The absence of Howard makes a change necessary, in order that it may be as well balanced as before. Whether or not it will be shoved up so that the men will bat in the same order or whether they will be switched around is not yet decided. A great deal depends on the sort of game Catcher Morris of Tech puts up tomorrow whether he will be given the job as All-High catcher. A man can't be given a Job on an All-High team for the work he has done outside the series, and as matters stand now both Parker and King of Eastern and Central, respectively, have just as good a call on the position as has Morris.

Parkes Beat Britton ? Touchard Starts Today. Nine matches were played at the Chevy Chas? Club's annual invitation tennis tou*-name:>t yesterday afternoon before th? rain came up, the third round of the men's singles being completed, the preliminary and first rounds of the wom en's singles and the preliminary round of the men's doubles. The beat match of the day was that between Parkes and Britton In the third round of the men's singles, Parkes win ning In straight sets, H?3 and 6?2. The winner, who hails from New York, la a former Washingtonlan, and several years ago. as a member of the Bachelors' Club, was considered one of the best of the local talent, so his good work In the tournament is not much of a sur prise. He showed lots of speed yester day and a great deal of ground-covering ability, getting Britton's hard returns with very little trouble. His service is good, being unusually accurate, and his opponent had some difficulty In handling it v. ith any degree of certainty. Britton played well, displaying the form which has been bringing him near the top in other tournaments, but he was simply outplayed. Parkes leading throughout both sets. This victory puts Parkes in the semi-final round, he and Lee Mc Clung being scheduled to play today to see which one meets Conrad B. Doyle In the finals. The McClung-M. A. Colton match at tracted lots of attention, but mainly on account of its importance in the tourna ment. as with the exception of the first set, which went to Colton, it was rather one-sided. McClung allowing his opponent but two games in the next two, the score for this match being 4?6, 6?1 and 6?1. Three matches in the men's doubles were decided, one going by the default route. "Freddie" Colston, the Baltimore crack, who was paired with Touchard, has sent word that he will be unable to play in the tournament, so Wood was substituted for him yesterday, and this pair was awarded its match over Hellen and Blair, as the latter pair was not on hand when the match was called. In the other two matches played John Britton and N. W. McLean defeated Lewis and C. M. Wood, 6?1 and 6?2, and Brown and Wilcox were returned the winners over Moore and Towneend, 6?3, 5?7 and 6?O. The losers weakened In the last set, after playing exceptionally well in the first two. The women's singles brought out two matches, which were nothing out of the ordinary, the favorites winning in each rase. Mrs. Gunner defeated Miss Smith. 6?1 and 6?1, and Miss Holmes of New York captured her match from Miss Lay. G?1 and 6?2. The two winners will fight it out this afternoon in the semi-finals and an unusually good match is looked for, Mrs. Gunner being picked to win be cause of her recent victory over Miss Marie Wimer In the Middle Atlantic States tournament.

The Southern Whist Association, com prising the cities of Baltimore, Norfolk, Richmond and Washington, held Its an nual tournament at the Grafton Hotel in this city last Monday and Tuesday, many players from the four cities named taking part. The play was exceptionally Interest ing In all the contests, the Baltimore team, comprising Beverly Smith, H. Mc Cay, Thomas and McEldowney, winning the coveted trophy. This team has a na tional reputation and the other teams in the association will have the greatest difficulty in keeping the silver cup from going into its permanent possession. Last year the Washington team captured the cup at the Norfolk tourney. The pair contests were the most popu lar, as all the whisters took part, Mrs. Carpenter and Mr. Taliaferro, with a plus score of 11%. making the top score. This score was the best of the tourna ment in all the pair matches. At the regular meeting of the associa tion it was decided to hold the next tour nament at Richmond next year May 29 and 30.

Less than four months ago Ad Woigast, lightweight champion of the world, cam* , out of his "hole" on his Cadillac farm j determined to show the fistic world , whether or not he was rightfully named the "cheese champion," as a number at fight critics attempted to make their readers believe. Tom Jones, who man* ages the "Little Iron Man," sent him ! against one of the toughest hoys In the country in the person of "Knockout" Brown, and there were few of the opinion giving Woigast a shade at the end of I their six-round session. At that time It ?H figured Woigast the winner because of his wonderful aggressiveness and ability to outslug any lightweight in the world. On the other hand, the New York critics were unanimous In declaring Woigast to be the real thing in the papler-ma5ne"TTn? They could not see him even as a good preliminary boxer, and panned him un mercifully becsuse he did not stop the boy who knocked out Tommy Murphy In forty seconds. There was a repetition of the roast when i Woigast met Brown In a return bout for i ten rounds in Brown's back yard ("New York city). Bob Edgren was among the critics who fairly slaughtered Woigast with his pencil. In declaring Brown the winner of the fight, although he did say that Woigast finished like a house afire. Yet he never made mention of the fact that Brown did" nothing but clinch and hug from the fifth round to the end, with the Cadillac plowboy doing terrible ax ecu ti on inside all the time. Hounding Into Form. This bout showed conclusively that WOl gast was fast rounding to the form that entitles him to foe called the real bear cat of the prise ring. He was beginning to hit his stride, the stride he lost when he wss compelled to lay off six months with a broken forearm. Naturally he was out of form and needed a few fights to restore him to his normal fighting con l dition, and the two he had with Brown I brought him back. After the Brown fight the little champion jumped to the coast. I nursing en route a torn ligament in his right forearm, but it did not deter him from Jumping into the ring with George Memsic a few weeks later and beating him into submission in five rounds. I After this Woigast took on Anton La grave, touted on the coast as a second Eddie Hanlon. Woigast finished him in a jiffy, and then jumped back to New York and battered One-round Hogan so badly in two rounds that the referee had to stop It. Back again to the coast went Woigast, and after a vicious fight, prob ably the best fight staged In California since Woigast won the title from Nel son, the plowboy put the quietus on the championship aspirations of Frankie Burns, one of the best boys they havo out that way. Of course, it^is campaign shows Wol. gast to be a "cheese" champion. Some thing awful in the pugilistic line. Not much. Six fights in four months, is which be was compelled to travel twice from coast to coast, with hardly a chance or time to train, proves him to be what? The best lightweight since the davs of Kid Lavlgne. He Is not % pretty fighter. Not a Packer McFarland or Owen Moran in action, but my. what a bearcat he Is. The present crop of lightweights had better take to the woods when the kid from Cadillac heaves in sight, because this ferocious pugtlist la going to establish a record as a cham pion that will stand for year* to come. Yes. he is an awful cheese champion. He is only an ordinary card. Yes. very ordinary. So much so that he only |40,00o for himself since he came out of the wilds of Michigan to fight Knockout Brown less than four months ago.
