t Umpire Billy Evans, , who Is a
porting scribe In the Winter time,
and . thus keeps before" the public,
does the talking for the other um
pires in both the American and Na
tional Leagues. Evans is of tho
' opinion that the baseball reformers
are inclined to go too far in attempt
ing to make the fans adopt pink tea
manners at a ball game.
Kvans says: "There 'are a lot of
people who favor a rule providing
for the immediate ejection from the
grounds of any fan who hoots or
howls at the umpire. Now, to my
way of thinking, that would be alto
gether wrong. The warwhoop of the
fans is music to my ears." It used
to hurt, but it doesn't any more. The
fans have an idea that the home
team outclasses the visiting team, and
If the home team doesn't win the
umpire is at fault.
"As I was leaving the ball field af
ter a same in F allade'.r' la one day
a game In which the "thletlcs beat
their hated rivals, the Tigers by a
great ninth-Inning rally, I heard a
man say: 'We'd never have won that
pwn out for the way we got after
that umpire. He was afraid to give
us anything but a square deal at the
"Now, this fan thought he was
right. He imagined that because I
had declared Schmidt safe at the
plate on a desperate slide In the
eighth that the hisses greeting the
decision had been a factor in my de
cision that the same player, Schmidt,
had failed to pet the ball to first
ahead of Captain Davis in the ninth,
and that the last decision had paved
the way to the Athletics victory.
The average fan is all right. He
Imagines a lot of things that don't
exist. 'but let him go on so thinking.
It makes him a fan. and it is to Just
such fans as this that the national
game must look for Its support and
Its prosperity."

Chicagos Feb, 21 Bronzed, rugged
and full of confidence in his team
Manager Frank Chance has returnod
to Chicago ready to take the tiller
preparatory to piloting the Cubs in
the coming National league race.
The Cub leader not only thinks his
team will win the pennant again, but
is willing and able to tell why he
thinks so, and this is It.
"We will win,'! he said, "because
we won easily last year with' a team
that was not at its best. With Just
the same men in the ranks the Cubs
will be stronger than last; season. I
do not look for any such run of hard
luck as we encountered all through
1910. But the race will be a harder
one. because the other teams have
strengthened. To offset that we
have picked up a lot of promising
material from which we certainly
ought to gain as much new strength
as that added to. the other teams.
New York and Cincinnati have brac
ed " their teams and Pittsburg . must
always be - counted in the running
Fred Clarke is a grarfd fighter and
you have to figure him in ail the time
no matter . what they may tell you
about his team.
"The Beds will be dangerous If that
man McQulllen Is right Much de
pends on him, but I believe Griffith
can got the best . he has, and that
means he will be a grand pitcher.
With McQulllen added to the pitching
staff Griff's .bunch will be a tough
proposition. His men are fast on
the bases and in the field, while they
are likely to break things .up at the
bat any minute.
"Nevertheless, I don't see anything
but a. win for the Cubs in the end.
We are hot going to have Reulbach
sick from diphtheria and. weak from
the effects of it for the greater part
of the season. We missed him last
year. Then Ffiester just as he" was
going right -broke his wrist. Overall
twisted a ligament in his pitching
arm, and could not help us In the lat
ter half of the season. If we could
win in the face of all that happened
to us last year, I can't see how they
can beat us if we have only the av
age amount of tough breaks in a sea
son. "We have some mighty good ma
terial among the recruit, and a lot
of them are pitchers. We need only
one good one out of the lot. Vic
Willis will bea big help. I shall al
ways believe he pitched Pittsburg
into the championship in 1909. He
did not go back as fast as many per
sons think in a single season. I at

Boston.Feb. 21. President A. Law
rence Lowell of Harvard is authority
for the statement that the revised
football rules have reduced materially
the injuries which have heretofore
characterized the game. He made
this statement in his annual report
to the board of overseers of the uni
versity. President Lowell holds that the
changes made in the rules govern
ing the game have not detracted
from the spectacular features of the
sport and Intimates that when the
players become more familiar with
the new rules the Injuries will de
crease in proportion. In his report he
"The feeling that Intercolleglatte
games of football were too danger
ous to life and limb has resulted in
an effective revision of the rules.
These have not, perhaps, been in $p
eratim lonr enough to produce their
ultimate results. ,
"It would seem that the teams In
some of the colleges have not yet
become accustomed to them, but the
changes have certainly not made the
game a less Interesting spectacle.and
among Harvard players, at least, the
Injuries have been greatly reduced.

(Special from United Press.)
London, Feb. 21 Race prejudice as
strong as ever manifested itself in the
United States Is cropping out here in
connection with the 20 round fight, to
night, between Bam Langford. the
Boston Tar Baby, and Bill Lang, the
Australian. Hundreds of letters have
been received at Lang'a camp from all
over England wishing aim luck in his
effort to uphold the white race.
Last evening a large delegation,
most of whom were women, vjs'ted
Langford's headquarters and openly
insulted the black man by telling him
that they hoped he would "have his
head knocked off."
While the public is pulling for Lang
to win it doesn't let its favoritism get
the better of its Judgment and Lang
ford is still the long end in the bet
ting at odds of B to 4. It is Isestlmat
ed that 1175,000 has been wagered on
the fight in big bets alone.
Physicians examined Lang, today,
and pronounced him the finest physi
cal specimen they had ever seen.
Langford is in h's usual jolly mood
and repeated his prediction, today,
that he would put Lang away inside
of 12 rounds.
"My match with Jack Johnson is as
good as made," said he. today, "If
Johnson sticks to his promise to meet
the winner of tonight's fight." .
Langford will enter the ring weigh
ing about 185 pounds whereas Lang
will carry all of 190.
Mcintosh, who Is Lang's manager,
has repeatedly announced that the
Australian is the best white pugll st
In the ring, not excepting Al Kaufman
and other "hopes." but in this coun
try many .sporting men do not hold
this opinion, with the result that
Langford has been heavily backed
here as well as In Great Britain and
will be the ringside favorite.
Langford was born In Weymouth,
Nova Scotli in 1880 and is 5 feet 7 1-2
Inches tall , He has a phenomenal
ring record. Starting out as a profes
sional in 1902 he began . to attract at
tention in Boston ind New England.
He wasonty a wefterwe'ghf then.; but
he rapidly forged to the front by de
feating such men as Tim Kearns,
Walter Burgo. Belfleld Walcott, Young
Griffo, Patsy Sweeney, Joe Gans,
Charley Johnson, Willie Lewis, Geo,
McFadden, Young Peter Jackson, Lar
ry Temple and Joe Jeannette. He
met Jack Jnhnson at Chelsea, Mass..
In 1906. and the latter got a. decision
in a fifteen round bout, although
Langford knocked the big negro down
for. the count in the second round. Af
ter that Langford went to , England
and stopped Tiger' Smith and Jeff
Torne in JigtJme.
Coming back to America he whipped
Jim Barry, Jim Flynn, Sandy Fergu
son. - Al Kubiak. Morris Harris and
John Wille, after which he made an
other trip to London and knocked out
the English heavyweight champion.

Baseball players who retire deliber
ately when they have plenty of good
playing days ahead of them are few
and far betweeen.
Cases like that of Jake Stahl are
very rare. Stahl. from the form he
showed with the Boston Bed Sox last
year, could go on placing indefinite
ly!. Other notable Instances of this kind
were those of Fielder Jones, Bill
Lange and John M. Ward. Jones
stopped when he was right at the
top of his ability. He hadn't reach
ed the downhill stage and had shown
himself to be a star manager as well
as a ball player. Fruit raising In
Oregon held out allurements which
he couldn't resist, and with his re
tirement the game suffered the loss
of a player of rare skill.
- Bill Lange wa-j another shining
light which the sport could ill afford
to lose, although the defection of
any one player, no matter how ef
ficient, makes only microscopical Im
press on the national game. As a
fielder, batter and base runner,
Lange towered far above the general
run of players, and he probably
wasn't even at his best would have
improved still further when he
dropped diamond activities for good
and all and settled down to business
in California.
John Ward, may have seen his best
days as a player when he f orsoook
baseball for the law. but a man of
his type and ability would have gone
on for a good while longer as a man
ager had he cared to. Like the oth
ers, however, when he said he was
through he meant it.
Mike Donlin gave up the game
when he was at his best, and men
who could hit aa he could are a loss
when they and the diamond come
to the parting of the ways. When
Mike quit he quit, though with him
had the sufficient money incentivj
been forthcoming he probably would
have come back to the game. Billy
Lauder, the third baseman, stopped
playing of his own free will and for
no other reason than that he prefer
red to" do something else.' He could
have held his own In fast company
for some time longer, as also could
Ted Lewis, the pitcher, who gave up
baseball without waiting for the first
symptoms of a decline.
(Special from United Press.)
New Haven, Feb. 21. The bantam
title is at stake in the 15 round bout
between Frankie Burns, of Jersey
City, the present world's champion,
and Alf Lynch, of this city, Canada's
champion, scheduled for tonight's An
nex A. C. stag. Johnny Waltz, also
of Jersey City ,wiU meet Jeff Doherty,
w a to r i aKv t
tralia, refused to abide by his agree
ment. - Langford boxed six rounds
with the late Stanley Ketchel in Phil
adelphia last year, and though under
a pull he clearly outclassed the form
er middleweight champ on, who re
fused to meet him ia another fight to
a finish.
Langford for personal reasons refus
ed to meet - Al Kaufman in Philadel
phia last fall, but he went to the Coast
and stopped Jim Flynn in a few
punches. He challenged Johnson ' re
peatedly, after that, but the latter
persistently- Ignored him and refused
to cover his forfeits. They finally
met in Boston to arrange a battle, but
the conference ended in - a war of
words. '
It is believed by many that barring
Johnson, Langford Is the hardest hit
ter in the world. Though he is a bit
short he is aa quick as a. cat and is
all aggressiveness. He is scientific
and can hit from any angle, 'but his
most effective blows are delivered at
close quarters and generally travel
only a few inches. He is a quick
thinker and in point of physical con
dition it may be s:d that he always
takes excellent ears of his health. Be
caus of his speed and punching pow
er, coupled wfth his long ring exper
ience, he ls! flicked to win, and If he
scores a knockout it will not be sur
prising. . '
Lang is a typical Australian, game,
strong and willing. He met. Jack
Johnson several years ago and was
taking a hard beating when the au
thorities interfered. ' This battle took
place in Australia when Lang was
little more than a novice.' Tommy
Burns knocked him out in six rounds
in 1908, but last year in another scrap
Lang managed to stay- twenty rounds,
though Burns received the referee's
verdict on points. Lang came to
Axnerlca last summer to see the Jeffries-Johnson
mill. He hooked up
w:th Kaufman In Philadelphia in the
fall and was clearly outpointed in a
six-round contest. In that affair
Lang broke his wrist and was unable
to do himself justice,- at the same time
I being compelled to ,take va-? long rest.

vv nn Juang rpatneu .Engiana no was
hailed by Mcintosh as the coming
champion of the world. He proceeded
to beat Jack Burns of Callforn'a, a
fourth rater and then lost on a foul
to Petty Officer Curran In the first
round. -
Lang is a slow coach. He can hit
with either hand and Is fairly clever.
His best quality is physical strength,
which goes hand in hand with remark
able pluck. He can take a beating and
for that reason Mcintosh does not see
how Langford can put him to sleep.
The Olympia Annex can accommo
date nearly 10.000 spectators and the
fight has attracted so much attention
on the other side that an Immense
crowd will attend. The prices range
from S3 for- an admission to 150 for

60 per cent of the gate receipts. Eu

Jersey City is represented for the
third time in the preliminary between
Young Shugrue of the Mosquito State
and Joe Marcks, a local lad.
Cheer up fanatics, the baseball sea
son is not many days off. Just work
ahead a bit, the Connecticut league
opens two months from today. The
Mechanic recruits will be bounding
into Bridgeport In about six weeks.
Can you v wait it out? Not necessary
to state that some of the fans are
counting the time between now and
the. start by the days. Then again,
the reports from the training camps
will be now piling in daily, so that
uvery one will be supplied with the
veal stuff at every meal.
Having noted what most of tho
Connecticut league manager have
been doing, how do the clubs size up?
The opinion goes around the circuit
that Bridgeport and Hartford will be
the big noises this year. Lay a bet
down that Manager McCann will not
be caught as he was last year, he'll
be there with the utility stuff when
anything goes wrong, meaning that
first place looks good to him. From
the appearance of his pitching staff
and from those other players he has
signed up for other positions, in ad
dition to the number yet unannounc
ed, who are in the training camps, it
does appear that the Mechanics of
1911 will be 100 per cent, speedier
than McCann's hirelings of 1910
and that was some sweet outfit. As
for Hartford, Manager Tom Connery
will be back In the game this season,
signifying that the Senators will be
in the hunt from the start. Not' a
peep has been heard from O'Neil In
New Britain; not much is known
about the Canal Diggers, Winkler will
bring to Holyoke; Owner Gil Edwards
of Northampton has not given out
anything that- would cause alarm;
Waterbury is in an unknown state,
because of the uncertainty in man
agement; New Haven i.nay be gcod,
they have men who at one time did
know how to play the game they
may yet show something; in Spring
field, Manager Jack Zeller has been
real busy and has signed -up men who
appear to have the stuff in their
makeup. He has corralled a bunch
of promising youngsters, and ought
out of the large number he will fead
at Asbury Park get some who will be
future stars. The Ponk outfit ap
pears to be the best sent out from
Springfield since Zeller took hold. But
looking them all over, the Mechanics
do appear to be the headliner. yet
you never car tell, It's baseball they
are going to play, while baseball pen
nants are not won in February.
The Mechanics, have an extensive
pre-season schedule this year. Mc
Cann has picked up most of the
games he Intends to play before the
Nutmeg race and any spare dates will
be used for games with some of tho
city teams. The schedule follows:
HAVE always wanted a good definition of " Getting Hurleytized,"
1 but the one a customer gave me off-handed the other day seems
the truest. .
"Wm," sez he, " 'Getting Hurleytized' is like getting 50 inches
to the yard; or 30 ounces to the pound; or 3 pints to the quart." .
ThaVs the way all my customers feel about my great values.
Another one said: nWm., when the day comes that you can pour
the Atlantic Ocean into one of Ruppert's beer bottles, I'll believe that
the ground-floor stores can out-value you but understand, not until
then." ;
What "Getting Hurleytized" can yield you depends on yourself;
not on me.

That's a chesty list of exhibition
games Manager McCann has arrang
ed to get the lines on his players.
Not only will they give McCann a
chance to pick out those who will
grace the Mechanic pay roll, but will
also afford the fans a chance to com

Boston, Mass., Feb. 21 The inter
national curling championship and the
Gordon medal was won by the United
States at the Boston Arena after nve
hours of play yesterday when the
Canadian teams were derated by the
total score of 149 to 137. It marked
the nineteenth annual tournament,
during which time Canada has won
thirteen times and the United States
six times. Canada won last year.
The Unittd States teams won in five
of the -eight rinks today, twenty-one
enda being played at all the rinks by
agreement. '
The closest match was that between
the St. Andrews of Montreal, and the
Jersey City Curling club, which was
not decided until the last stone was
skipped. Measurements of the three
nearest stones gave tne match to St.
Andrews by one point, the score be

New Orleans. Feb. 21. The betting
odds on . the ' Coulon-Conley fight
jumped to 7 to 6 with Conley the
favorite, today, following the choos
ing of Tommy Walsh for referee, last
night. The choice lay between Walsh
and Dr. Wallace Wood but in a
stormy conference no agreement was
reached until the tossing of . a coin
was suggested and Walsh won.
A grand rally by Paddy Sullivan i
the last few rounds enabled him to
draw last night with Kid Burns, whom
he met in a ten-round bout at the
Olympic A. C-, in New York. The
bout went the limit, neither man ever
being in danger of a knockout. Sulli
van's hard right failed to work at
opportune moments. Sullivan's poor
showing was due to a large extent to
a foul blow which Burns unintention
ally sent to his groin in the fourth
round. Burns had the advantage
when the gong sounded for the
fourth session, and, eager to follow it
up, Burns rushed out of his corner
and hooked a hard right for Paddy's
body. Had Sullivan remained In his
position he would have received the
blow in the pit of the stomach. In
his anxiety to avoid it, Paddy jumped
back and the blow struck him in the
groin. Sullivan was hurt by - the
punch and was unable to continue
until after a five-minutes' rest.
Just to show that he Is in the best

The story deals with the decay of ;
the vast old Southern estates through
the depletion of the fortunes of the
Southern aristocracy, and draws a
striking contrast of patrician indo
ience of the South with the plebeian
push of the Ndrth. "Pedigree is very
important if you are buying a Jack
ass, but it'e out of date when you are
sizing up a man." is one of the bolt ,
that John Marshall, the stranger from
the North, hurls Into the startled,
group of representatives of the oldest
families of the South. Again he says.
"The old social prejudice of the South,
stronger than the Rock of Gibraltar,
and sometimes. I think, stronger than
the strongest thing in the world."

honorable son has under the Southern
code of ethics, no claim upon social

Marshall's flght to overcome the es
tablished order of thin, social and
business wise In the South. Is the '
theme of the play. Mr. Lackaye gave
a convincing picture of the hustling
business man of the class that doesn't
give much thought to women in gen
eral, but forgets almost everything
else when the one woman in particu
lar arrives. Mr. Lackaye's handling
of the intensely dramatitc situations,-
of which there are not a few. was m
his accustomed thoroughly masterful
manner. No less than 12 calls were
given his company and himself upon
the climax being reached.
Muriel Starr presented a fascinating .
picture of the spirited. Southerner wh -is
won over ' to Marshall's idea of
thinking. The cast furnishes several
excellent "character" players, lnclud--ing
Frank Burbeck' as Judee Carter,
Charles Reigl as General Warrington,
the grizzled Confederate warrior; E. .
M. Kimball, who scored In the pic
turesque role of the auctioneer and
Justice of the peace; and Harriet
Brent as the "mammy." Harry O.
Stubbs as Theophilus Pmkney. an
other Southerner being enlisted In the
Northern school, injected many flashes
of fun by his breezy Interpretation of
the part of the pickle drummer. Edna
Conroy. as Venetla Warrington,
Mary's confident! added another to the
enchanting picture of the South. Oth
ers who rounded out the capital cast
were Louis Thomas, Osborne Searle,
and H. S. Northrup. Mr. Northrup
as the younsrer Carter gave an effec
tive enactment of a part that fairly
reeked with villainy.
