Pelkey Trial Begins Today irt
Calgary Murphy Wins.
The trial of Arthur Pelkey, charg
ed with manslaughter in connection
With the death of Luther McCarty
in the heavyweight championship
fight a few weeks ago, began today
at Calgary, Alberta, the scene of the
There is intense feeling in Canada
over the McCarty-Pelkey affair, but
it is not likely that Arthur will be
given any very severe punishment,
even if convicted. The law was vio
lated by the fight, but Pelkey is not
the man to be censured. The killing
of McCarty was an accident, pure
and simple.
The Canadian Northwest Mounted
Police condoned the fight by being
present and making no effort to stop
it There is where the blame rests,
if anywhere.
Since his arrest Pelkey has been
in training south of Calgary, His
declaration that he would retire from
the ring has been reconsidered, and
if he is acquitted he will take on
Gunboat Smith for the champion
ship. Eddie Murphy of Boston got the
decision over Harry Trendall at the
end of eight rounds of milling in St.
Louis last night, but the result added
nothing to the laurels of the Hubite.i
Trendall made a great finish and
clearly outfought the Easterner in
the last four rounds. Murphy had
piled up a big lead in the first half
of the battle and got the verdict on

If you've been out at the West Side
park to see the last three combats
between the Cubs and Phillies you
have watched two of the best short
stops in the business in a fielding
This serves as an introduction to
Al Bridwell of the 'Cubs and Mike
Doolan of the Phillies, both of whom
play anywhere between second and
third, and from the pitcher's box out
to left field.
Each player can throw from al
most any position, with Doolan a
shade better at contortions while
getting the pill to first base a step
ahead of the batter. Each can go
either to the right or left after sharp
bounding grounders and Bridwell fs
slightly better on balls driven
straight at him.
It is on pop flies that Bridwell
