San Francisco yesterday, the coast
man losing in the fourteenth round,
being knocked out "on his feet."
Logan was sick of Clabby. It is
doubtful if he ever before met a man
'he had so little use for.
Clabby ran the gamut of fighting
tricks. He opened up with his clever
ness and speed, and relied on this
style for five rounds. Logan partially
solved this offense in the sixth, and
drove home a few stout punches.
This nettled Jimmy, and in the sev
enth, after his lip had been cut, he
tossed his false teeth to his seconds
and tore after Logan in approved
slam-bang fashion. Logan's stom
ach was Clabby's objective, and the
Hammond man shot blow after blow
into the coast fellow's turkey reposi
tory. Logan made frequent claims of
foul, but they were unfounded. Frank
simply had enough. In the 14th Clab
by scored with a heavy stomach blow
and Logan backed up. He claimed to
have been struck Iqw, but the referee
held Clabby's glove aloft in token of
victory. Logan was in distress at the
close of the thirteenth, and his sec
onds advised him not to start what
proved to be the last round.
Clabby came in for considerable
ridicule by training for his battle on
the tennis courts. He declared that
the net game was great stuff for a
fighter, and was given, the merry guf
faw. He showed 'em.
Baseball writers are th.e most un
grateful cusses we ever heard tell of.

The chobby Dutchman, to sHow
his sympathy for the dopists, has so
far refrained from signing a new

Here in Chicago they are picking
Tinker to come back to the West Side
and do some shortstopping during
the coming season, under the boss
ship of Johnny Evers.
Hey, men! The sun hasn't shone
in this village for three days. Why
attempt to increase the blackness
Tinker and Evers inever did get
along. Joe 'has had a taste of leader
ship in the past year, and he and
Evers might have even greater diffi
culty living in peace and amity. That
isn't a knock for either man, but both
are human beings.
"Picture Tinker, Evers and Zim on
the same team, without the iron
hand of Chance to keep them in or

lad rushed to the attack, and a cou

first round and took some smashing
punches- He allowed Dundee to step

fear of a return. This made, the mill
