MILWAUKEE, Aug. 16—Will the
New York Boxing Club make the
same mistake that has been made
in some of the large cities and kill
their own game now that Doxing
contests have been legalized by the
state legislature? From information
at land it is eident that some of
the prompters in the big city are fall
ing into a hole that may make trouble
for them later on, and it is hoped for
the good of the game, that they will
see their mistake before it is too late.
The game in Chicago would be go
ing today if it were not for the fact
that the promoters themselves made
it impossible for the authorities there
to countenance it. The same trouble
has been experienced in other cities,
but not to such a great extent, and
now there is danger of the New York
promoters making the same mistake.
The commission appointed by Gov.
Dix of New York and which is made
up of very conservative men has not
had an opportunity yet to operate, but
the chances tare that when it does be
gin there will be some very explicit
advice given to the promoter in the
city, who are inclined to overstep
their bounds.
It was shown that within the past
week some of the New York promot
ers have endeavored to annex all the
high class matches in sight and have
even gone so far as to try and induce
boxers to break their contracts.
James Coffroth, the San Francisco
promoter is already complaining that
the New Yorkers are going to ex
tremes in their bidding for matches,
and ding things that would hardly be
called legitimate. This is pretty
strong when you consider that Cof
froth is one of the kind who will bid
all kinds of prices for a good match.
If reports are true about the great
number of boxing clubs springing in
to existence in the great metropolis,
it will be only a question of time that
many of them will be wiped out, and
it will simmer down to the survival
of the fittest. However, the commis
sion will, no doubt, take a ban- and
see that only legitimate clubs are per
mitted to operate, and that everything
will have to he done above board.
There is no doubt that New York
has the edge on other cities in hand
ling high class matches, for they have
the population to draw from, and a

class of men who will pay good prices
to witness a good contest. The con
ditions, however, are similar to base
ball that is when New York is strong
for baseball it is a pretty good sign
that the rest of the country follows,
and so it is with boxing. With the
fistic game legalized in New York
state, it should prove a good boom to
the game all over the country, and it
will not be surprising to see other
states fall in line and legalize the
sport, where the bouts are limited to
not more than ten founds. In the
meantime, let us hope that the New
York promoters will not try and kill
the goose that laid the golden egg,
the same as was done when the
Horton law was in Vogue.
Matt Wells, the English lightweight
champion, who came lover ,'to this
country under the management of
George McDonald with' the express
object of getting on with A1 Wolgast
or Packey McFarland is very much
put out because he has got to lay
around until the two American stars
get ready for him. From a real"box
ing standpoint there is no doubt that
Wells is the man who should be
favored with a bout with Wolgast, for
the reason that he is the legitimate
champion of Great Britain and has the
right to demand a contest for the
world's title. He should get first
call over Freddy Welch, whom he de
feated for the championship of Great
Britain, but in this case he has been
sidetracked as Wolgast has practi
cally arranged a match with Welch,
for Thanksgiving day at Los Angeles.
Wells claims that he can make the
same weight that McFarland is mak
ing for Wolgast, for their match Sept.
15 in Milwaukee, and if necessary he
can do even lower weight. He is at
the point where he says he will force
Wlolgast into a match or make him
give up the title. The only way he
could do this would be to post' a sub
stantial forfeit for a contest and
leave the same up for six months
the same as Jake Kilrain did with
John L. Sullivan, twenty years ago.
The public, however, did not recog
nize Kilrain, and it is a 100 to 1 shot
they would not recognize Wfells as
world champion unless he should ac
tually beat the Michigan boy in a ring
battle. There is no reason, however,
why Wells should not be given recog
nition and it is hoped that he will get
what he is looking for after Wolgast
and McFarland have had their ten
round go.
It is a problem to understand why
the New York sports should install
Ad Wolgast a two to one favorjte over
Packey McFarland in their ten round
no decision contest, to be held in Mil
waukee September 15. Both boys
have boxed In New York city, and
from the newspaper accounts of the
contest, McFarland was considered
the biggest favorite of the two and
was also picked to defeat Wolgast in
any kind of a contest up to twenty
rounds. Probably the decisive victory
Wolgast scored against Owen Moran
has changed the minds of the sport
ing men. But why one battle shouid
bring about such a change is ham to
understand. There is no doubt that
Wolgast is a wonderful little fighter,
and in a long contest he would natur
ally rule favorite over any opponent
put against him, but to make him a
two to one favorite in a short bout
where no decision is given, it seems
uncalled for. It is admitted on all
sides that McFarland is one of the
cleverest boxers in the country today,
for it takes a mighty clever boxer to
outpoint Freddy W/elch, and that is
what McFarland did in England But,
despite thfe fact, Wlolgast is given
the calL Of course these betting pro
positions will be left to newspaper
decisions, and there will be all kinds
of arguments as to who is right, for
unless one of the men has a decided
advantage there will be mil kind* of
v£" fiftfwi/.WiyifcWJ^'l^.'A
decisions handed out by the writers.
The fight itself should develop into
a grand one, for the simple reason
that their styles are entirely opposite,
and when you get a clever man
against one who is going in and mix
ing the result is usually a battle of
the highest class, and that is what
is -expected when they clash Sept. 15.
It may mean a twenty-round battle
following this one, but even if it does
it is a positive fact that they will go
at top speed in their ten round con
test, because Packey will be looking
for a chance to win decisively, which
would mean a turn of fortune for
him, and you can bet all you have
got that he will not overlook the op
portunity if it presents itself.
There was a story sent out the
other day that Toni Capponi, the Ital
ian middleweight, of Chicago, who
had signed a contract to go to Aus
tralia the coming season had given
up the idea, because of dissatisfaction
over the terms. The fact is Caponi
was getting a guarantee of nearly
$1,000 more than he had accepted,
due to the mistake in the wording of
the cablegram, which was afterwards
corrected. The real cause of Caponi
not going to Australia is due to the
fact that his little wife strenuously
objected to parting with Tony six or
seven months, and gave the husky
middleweight to understand that she
would not remain in Chicago alone
while .her spouse was meeting all
comers in the Antipodes. Tony would
have been tickled to death to make
the trip, and is now trying to fix
matters whereby he can take his
better half with him on a tour through
the southern hemisphere in +914.
The elimination tournament for
middleweights, which will be staged
by the West Side Athletic Club of
New Orleans this fall, is bringing
into the limelight several new men
who have had very little boosting in
the past. Among the new comers
who fiave entered for the contest
are Billy Uvick of Omaha, Tommy
Gavigan of Cleveland, Jack Dillon of
Indianapolis and a protege of Frank
Mantell of Providence, R. I. These
boys have all entered, and in three
cases have offered to pay their own
transportation to New Orleans in
order to get trials against such men
as Eddie McGoorty, Bob Maha, Billy
Papke. 'Johnny Thompson, Frank
Mantell. Jimmy Gardner and others.
From the way the boys are entering
the spirit of the thing, there prom
ises to be some very lively contests,
and if Jim Sullivan th#" English mid
dleweight would enter, it would give
the tourney quite an international air.
The most talked of featherweight
in the country today is Jose Rivers,
the California Mexican, who lias been
defeating all comers before Tom Mc
Carey's club in Los Angeles. Abe
Attel is champion, but there are a
great many who look upon Rivers as
the coming champion, and his man
ager, Joe Levy, is already billing ulm
as the world's champion feather
weight and successor to Abe Attell.
Tom McCarey thinks so well of the
boy that .he has been endeavoring to
sign up Abe Attell for a world's
championship match, feeling that
Rivers would defeat the several boys
he is now matched against. Joe Levy
Intends coming east with Rivers
early in October, and there is a
scramble on between the numerous
featherweights as to who will get
first chance at him down at New
Orleans, for with the good men there
he will draw big money. Jimmy
Hearst of Kansas City, who pilots
Tom Dixon, has been begging for first
chance, claiming that his boy had all
the best of Rivers in their battle at
Los Angeles until he was disqualified
for an accidental foul. Jimmy John
son also wants another match for
Joe Foster, while Manager Smith is
more than anxious to put Patsy Kline,
the New York featherweight, against
the Mexican. Harry Gilmore is just
as anxious to match Frank Connolly
for the title. Tom McCarey has been
staging a sort of elimination tourney
for the feathers, and the West Side
Athletic Club of New Orleans is doing
the same thing. Between the two
there should be a clearing up of the
featherweight brigade, and when the
winner of these tourneys is picked
Abe Attell will have a real champion
ship match on his hands.
Cyclone Johnny Thompson is de
termined that Billy Papke will have
nothing on him when it comes to
claiming the middleweight title. John
ny is out with the announcement that
he is the legitimate middleweight
champion, having beat Papke for the
title at Sydney, Australia, and that
if Papke wants a match for the
championship he will have to make
the recognized limit of 158 pounds,
otherwise he (Thompson) will ignore
him. Thompson says he is ready
to fight any man in the country at
the middleweight limit, and will de
fend the title at any time. He is now
matched to meet Frank Klaus, the
Pittsburg middleweight, who is with
out any doubt one of the toughest
nuts to crack in the country today,
and the result of this contest will be
awaited with interest. Papke has
signified his willingness to meet
Thompson over the ten round route
in Milwaukee, but is holding off for
a twenty round battle at New Orleans
until later on. In the meantime aAdy
McGoorty, the Oshkosh boy, and Bob
Moha of Milwaukee are hot on the
trails of both Thompson and Papke.

Baseball! Faculty vs. Students.
Faculty won to 3. Where were
the students? They did well but they
had entirely underestimated the abil
ity of the faculty members in the
game. The faculty had a good bat
tery in Thordson and Houseman and
with SP /eral good men at the bat they
played a good game. At first the
8tuden*« were in the lead and were
full of confidence when after two in
nings the score stood 3 to 0 in their
favor. But just at the psychological
mome some admirer of the faculty
called "Ice cream if you win," and
this call seemed to change the fort
unes of both sides as can be seen by
the final score given above.
(N. B. The faculty players have
not seen or tasted the ice cream yet.
Should they not see it there may be
danger of the call losing its charm
before another year.)
It was interesting to note the di
plomacy of the rooters for the stu
dents. At first the cry was "We saw,
we saw we saw wood. The faculty
it's no good." But later in the
game these polite students who
expect grades by the end of the sum
mer school, changed the call to, "We
saw, w« saw, we saw wood. The
faculty has made good." And of
course the grades will be forthcoming.
Mr. Correll and family left May
