Former Woman Tennis Champion of the World
Arrives From Scenes of the Great JRacquet
Contests— Public Reception Will Be
Accorded Plucky Young Player
Special to The Herald.
PASADENA, Sept. 12.— Quietly Miss
i:ay Sutton, former woman tennis
chnmplqn player of the world, and her
sister, Miss Florence Sutton, returned
to Pasadena and their arrival was so
entirely unexpected that no one save
Charles Sutton, brother of the two, was
on hand to greet them. The athletic
young women returned on the Salt
Lake train which reached Pasadena at
about 7 o'clock this evening and the
first words of the little champion, for
Miss May Sutton is still the premier
player of America, were: "My, but it's
good to get back home."
The sisters hastened at once to their
home at the corner of Mountain street
and Hill avenue, where their father,
Capt. A. de G. Sutton and the other
members of the family, warmly greeted
Miss Sutton returns to Pasadena
with one very important championship
still remaining, that of the Trl-State
Tennis association. Both Miss May
and Miss Florence worked up to the
finals for this prize and the latter
finally went down to defeat in straight,
sets at the hands of her plucky little
Both of the young women talked
freely of their experiences while away
in s?arch of championship honors,
thought Miss Florence Sutton made the
most pertinent remarks concerning the
reason for her sister's defeat at the
hands of the English champion, Miss
"My sister was not playing in any
thing like her top form," said Miss
Florence Sutton, "or else I do not be
lieve Miss Douglass could have beaten
her. I hope May will be able to have
another try with her and I am sure
she cftn win. I don't believe Miss
Douglass had Improved so greatly as
some say. but think that my sister was
not in her best form."

at home quietly for a time. That will
be change enough ! for us. It seems
awfully good to be back In Pasadena
again. We have no games in sight just
now and 1 think we both have had
enough of tennis tournaments for a
while at least. Our hope is that if my
sister has another chance she will do
better." •
When asked as to the reception ac
corded them while away, both sisters
said they had a perfectly delightful
time and had received splendid treat
mentl from everyone with whom they
came In contact. Miss Florence Sutton
said that the thing, the family Is the
proudest of Is the way in which Miss
May took her defeat.
"I think the was a perfect sport,"
said Miss Florence. "It is a hard thing
to take defeat gracefully, but I think
my sister took her losses as well as
anyone could. The English people
seemed to think more highly of her
than ever before because she was such
a sport when Miss Douglass won."
In spite of the extremely quiet home
coming of the former champion, promi
nent citizens of the city are already
talking of a public reception to the
Sutton sisters. Many feel that the lit
tle player who fought so pluckily for
her title as champion of the world is
entitled to a welcome fully as warm as
the one accorded her last year. Presi
dent D. M. Linnard of the board of
trade says that he believes a committee
to arrange for a public redeptlon should
be appointed and he offers the Hotel
Maryland as a place in which to hold
such a function.
Dr. W. Edward Hlbbard, who had
charge of the reception to Miss May
Sutton last year, is expected back in
Pasadena In a few days and he may
again have charge of the welcome
which the public practically insists
shall be given. to the little woman who
did her best to retain championship
laurels for this state.

Dalton and Attell Are Expected to
Put Up a Fast Battle — Eddie
Meeney Hot After
Betting was 10-8 with Jimmy Burn*
as the favorite last night. Montana
Kid Is deemed to be against a very
difficult proposition though there are
those who pin their faith on the husky
cattle state boy.
Tommy Burns who brought Burns
(or Memsic) to the coast probably had
visions ,of a dark horse coming away
winner. The crowd caught wily Tom
my In the act, however, and have
been looking up the Memsic boy's rec
ord. According to Burns his protege is
as good ad over.
Everyone will have an opportunity
of realizing Just how good a dopester
Tommy Is after the decision. The
chunky champ has seen both boys box
and if will be professional judgment
backing Memsic.
The latter is an extremely well set
up youngster and appears to be capable
of a gruelling go. He may exptct that
of Montana provided the Kid enters on
a mixing game. ■ .
Caesar Attell and Kid Dalton will
shadow much of the limelight tomor
row evening when Tom McCarey's try
out menagerie puts in an appearance.
Rumor hath it that Dalton, who halls
from Rome, Italy, has referred in no
gentle terms to his Yiddish contempor
ary, while the pawnbroker says there
will be a monk on a string as an asset
to the three-ball house when he finishes
with the banana vender.
Caesar was clever or at least ap
peared very much to the good as
against his last opponent, having train
ed more or less conscientiously for the
fray. The Jew boy used his left like
a triphammer with the result that the
other lad resembled the much lamented
Bat Nelson after Joe Gans waxed tired
of mauling him.
There seems small possibility of Caes
ar's putting Dalton away and should
the latter go In as he is probably
capable of something may be doing in
the way of a knockout.
Those who have witnessed many of
the recent goes at Naud Junction com
plain that altogether too much care
has been taken by the respective op
ponents as regards their personal
safety. Avoiding punishment is pretty
play, but the chance of . a possible
knockout has been rather too upper
most in the minds of certain youngsters
performing at the east end arena.
The tryout£ are popularly supposed
to be given with a view of bringing real
championship form to the front, and
while a certain few have gone at It for
all they are worth, others appear to be
of a sort that is perfectly willing to go
and come so long as they are given an
opportunity of pulling down prelimin
ary coin.
Those are not lacking who believe
that the Dalton boy possesses cham
pionship timber. He gave Harry Ba
ker a good run and has defeated many
of the local comers. Should he sail in
for fair tomorrow there should be
thi.igs doing.
Nearly as much interest is attached
to the Eddie Meeney-Torres go. The
last battle between the two was
stopped and a decision given to Torres.
While it lasted the affair was a furi
ous one, Torres going down for eight
under a wallop of the slender Meeney.
After the fray Eddie was loud in his
protestations that he had been robbed,
declaring that he was stalling. Chance
that he won't try stalling again.
Tommy Leahy is a boy who has been
going a mediocre route during the past
months. He should best the Terrible
Turk's cousin or whatever relation the
new comer is, or send a substitute the
next time. .
Leonard Lauder and young Berry are
both green ones, but willing.
In the bantam class come Scotty
Johnson and Jimmy Ervin, who should
make things lively for a while.

Easing Off
Hearing Intimations thnt the winner
of the Montana Kld-Jlmmy Uurns'bout,
scheduled for tomorrow evening, might
be matched with Herman, Hrltt or
Neary, Johnny Thompson comes' along
with the following line:
"If either Burns or Montana are
looking for a match with some one that
will give them a side bet, they will not
have to leave town to secure a match.
I have fought both of these boys, lun
ing a six-round decision to Burns' and
securing a ten-round draw with Mon
"I am satisfied that the Los AngtHes
ring followers know why I did not win
from Montana, and as to losing a six
round decision to Burns, 1 .will simply
say that I am not a six-round fighter,
I would like to meet Neary, Herman,
Brltt or Qans myself,- but at the pres
ent time the men mentioned seem to
have other engagements. Consequently,
If the winner of Friday night's contest
will come through with a good-sized
bet, say $600 or $1000, I will post my
money Inside of twenty minutes after
the winner has signified his willingness
to cover it.
"Both of these men are hard boya to
defeat. Montana Is shifty, and has a
good punch. Burns. Is a- mixer and has
a jolt that will put any lightweight
away if It lands in the right spot.
"However,! believe that I can defeat
either of them, and as the best proof
of my sincerity is a side cask bet, I de
cided yesterday that, (would challenge
the winner. All I ask is that the 1 con
test be a twenty-round affair and 133

One of the roadhounes jual outside the
east city limits on Slauson avenue was,
according to the belief of the police, re
sponsible for a vicious assault made by
an unidentified man upon a woman who
In believed to be a member of one of
the most prominent families of Los An
The assault occurred Tuesday night
aijout 10:30 o'clock at the corner of
Mor.eta and Slnuson avenues.
The persons concerned In the attack
are believed to have been members' of
an automobile party which visited thu
Outside Inn earlier In the evening.
According to the statement of the
barkeeper at the Outside Inn the party
left the place about 10 o'clock and all
seemed to be In good humor. Evidently
there was a quarrel, however, as the
man and woman who were concerned In
the assault did not enter the machine
but walked from the roadhouse at 400
Knst Slauson avenue to Moneta and
Slauson avenues, where the assault oc
David Pitt of 618 East Slauson ave
nuo saw the assault and made the fol
lowing statement:
"I left the car at Slauson and Moneta
avenues to go to my home.
' "As I stepped from the car I noticed
a man and woman standing on the
northeast corner talking angrily.
Fells Woman With Fist
"At first I paid no attention to the
quarrel, but when a second later the
man struck the woman with his fist full
In the face I went over to see what was
the trouble.
"The woman fell unconscious to the
"The man seized her by the hand and
tried to help her up but she could not
"I noticed that the woman had a dia
mond ring on the hand which the man
grabbed, but I thought nothing of that.
"A few seconds later a car came and
the man swung on it and disappeared.
"Soon the woman recovered con
sciousness and I telephoned for a cab
for her.
-"After she had steadied herself a bit
she said that she had been robbed of a
diamond ring.
"Then I thought of the man taking
her by the hand and told her of it. She
would say nothing beyond that It must
have fallen off her finger and she would
not believe that her companion had
taken it.
Well Dressed and Thirty
"She was a well dressed woman about
thirty years old, I should Judge, and
she wore a flat hat with an automobile
veil around it. She was dark com
plected with rather reft cheeks. Her
hair was black.
"Men who were near by when the
two appeared at the corner told me
that they had been at the Outside Inn
drinking heavily and that both were
under the influence of liquor to a very
noticeable degree. I myself saw that
the woman was not able to take care
of herself and Indeed she could hardly
walk. .
"The blow which the man struck her
cut her cheek and the blood was flowing
"I do not remember what cab com
pany it was that sent out a carriage
after her." . ,
After the woman went down town In
the cab bystanders searched for the
ring which the woman claimed to have
lost, but it was not until yesterday^
when a Herald representative went t<S
the scene of the assault that the jewel
was found. ■• - • ,
Ring Is Found
The ring is at present in the posses
sion of a man . who can be found by
applying to ..The ' Herald, and- when
ownership is proven It will be given
over. . ,
It is judged by the size of the stone
that the value thereof is not far from
$150 and may exceed that amount.
Shortly after the cars started run
ning yesterday morning a young man
went to the scene of the attack and
searched for the missing jewel. He
stated that he was sent by the man
who committed the assault, but refused
to give either his name or the name of
thejnan who sent him.
A report of the loss of the Jewel was
made to the police and they. worked In
the city on the. case all day yesterday,
while Constable de la Monte endeav
ored to ascertain the particulars of the
assault. ' ■-"»■«
It was stated by residents of that sec
tion of the city that assaults of a like
nature were of constant occurrence in
that vicinity, near which there are thrae
roadhouses. . - . . ■
Masquerade is In order at the Ange
lus rink this evening when the skaters
