Andrews.) f Probably it-would be a good thing for some of the boxers 'and the box ing promoters in this country If - the former were held more strictly to.acr count as. regards contracts, etc.,"1 the same as in England. There are many times when boxers in the United States enter into contracts and break them with : impunity " Of" course, in - states iiike New York and Wisconsin, where the .sport is legalized the boxers are held strictly "to account regarding the making- of contracts, "but there are so many places where the sport Is not le galized that "they do ' about as the pleastt. .A:A-i-."j;r: C";-:;. ;,The only safe way forpromoters, it seems," is to have" a casli-' forfeit up to protect , fhem. .. In-. England the courts recognize the factfthat boxing in a way is a . legitimate sport and fighters ;who enter into contracts are held just as , liable as an actorwho makes, a 'contract , for his -appearance at any theatre.

There are many cases of that kind In the States, but-; few have ever ; got into the courts. .,' ?,;J- -'" ': The stellar -boxing attraction of the year -will no doubt be the ten round clash': between Willie, Ritchie. , light weight champion;, and Ad Wolgast, ex champion, before the Queansbury Ath letic, club : of Milwaukee, -March. 12th. There is no doubt but that this contest overshadows the proposed - battle be tween Mike Gibbons and Packey Mc Farland. . The latter contest, had it taken place," would have attracted a great deal pf attention in the East and in fact all over the country, but in the case of Wolgast. and Ritchie, the enr tire sporting fraternity throughout the United States seems to have gone daf fy ever it and It is no exaggeration to say that , the "biggest crowd that lias ever attended a contest-in. the middle west, will be present the night , of March 12, in the big Milwaukee Audi torium. .. y. .

' KING COLE OF N.'Y. PITCHING STAFF VERY j FOND OF SOFT WORDS l : King Cole, the. pitcher who was res cued from the minors bythe Yankees, who jumped to the Federals and then back to the Yankees, is the type of player 'who thrives on . flattery. . To charge Cole with being' a quitter takes the heart put of him;, to make , him be lieve ; you .think.- he ; is ; a. , wonderful pitcher is to transform him into a real .wonder. , 1 .-' i ': .. When Cole joined , the Cubs some years.' ago Frank '.Chance, then mana ger -of the : team, " soon learned; that Cole --was susceptible , i to r flattery. Chance qlclty,.VUpped .pfit?, the vet-; erans on the team to his finding with excellent: results. .. Whenever . it was Cole's turn; to pitch some of the Cub regulars would manage to' get within ear shot 'ol Cole 'and then edge in a few rexnaj&s about: " , . 'J "Say, Km't that Cole a wonder?" . '.

It made him pitch himself into the ' leadership of the league in that year; 110 'and his thirty-three victories materially aided in landing the Cubs at the top of tha National league heap.'. ; i , In some of -.the games Cole at times would show signs of weakening". This always was a signal for his teammates while -sitting - on the bench - between innings to carry .':, on a conversation among themselves on this order; i: AThose other guys think the King is wobbling, but 'the joke, la on them." "I should say it is," another- would chine iu. "They don't know the King. Why, that boy . simply lets 'em get a few hits, and runs, that- last inning so they wouldn't be altogether mninmsl to show1 their faces .to-morrow." . . i "Right you are," would be the re mark from another.' "Watch the King next inning. He'll stand 'em on their heads.";- t r . All this would : reach Cole's . ears and s all this would cause,-an instant stiffening of - Cole's backbone.

But, anyway you look at it, the Detroit aggregation this spring makes you ask: "Where do they drift to?" - "Well, there's Wild Bill Dcrnovan managing Providence in the Interna tional league, j Tom Jones is with Milwaukee; Herman Schaefer plays with the Senators: Jimmiii irchw m Jimmie, who couldn't bat hard enough ior me ugers, is with the Cubs; Charlie OTjeary ' is out on the coast and Claude Rossman ls in the west.
