FIGHT TALK IS ABUNDANT MNY MATCHES MENTIONED BY I MANAGER McCAREY h-fIOMAS AND KETCHELL MAY BE NEXT BIG CARD [AHe Attell Also Slated for Go with I Either Weekes or Driscoll. Gossip of Local Ring J»ght talk fills the air In Los Angeles t *c days, and if any one of a dozen ta^ed-of matches is finally made up the BFJcwts will have a chance to see some th ng besides the dub pork and bean af fa rs which McCarey has been responsible From 'the looks cf things It Is possible that Kid Ketchell and Joe Thomas will be the next big card handed out by the Pa cific Athlstic club. Thomas and Ketchell recently fought a draw at Marysville. and a comeback between them might prove In teresting. In spite of the draw Thomas ou«ht to be able to get his opponent, for heprobably thought he had something spongy Mlhen he fought him before and did not train properly. But If they do get together the fight Bhould be a good one. According to his press agent Ketchell had all the best of thq last mill, and is a tough boy who can make any of them hump. Thomas haa whipped them all in the welterweight brigade, and is Just as much entitled to the championship as anybody. Another ticket which McCarey may spring is Jimmy Burns and some other good lightweight. On the strength of al most nothing Burns is running around telling how he would like to fight (Jans, and his backers are also tossing off a lot of bull about being willing to bet real money on the outcome. Of course Burns Is entitled to all the space he can get, but the sports are beginning to get tired of it. Almost any fighter of no more prominence than Burns is willing to meet Gans, for in addition to the small chanco of winning there is always the short end to consider. «k£ might be a good idea for McCarey, since he seems bound in some way to put up both Tommy and Jimmy Burns, to give the latter a fight with Packy Mc- Jj«and. Both Packy and Jimmy whipped Tsutch Charlla Neary, and from the way the battles went they ought to bo able to VBV'up a pretty battle when they get to gether. ' Able Attell anil Freddie Weekes are also among the possibilities. Weeks is com ing right along all the time, and while 1l Wee who have seen Attell polish off everything he tackled cannot give Weekes a chance In the ultimate summing up, they figure he might be able to give Able an * awful run for the change. Attell and Driscoll are also on tap, and may be brought together in Los Angeles. J^riscoll is the English boy who proved J|jl " batter in the ring than most of his gK»ntrymen, and a fight with Attell would (HI a real test as to how fast and how far fjMrcan go. the only match of which McCarey (¦•kes no mention Is an affair between HSiar champion Tommy Burns and some- Wfcere near champion Mike Sehreck. This «l»t>ne fight that the sports would like to see, and if McCarey should land It he •nnjuld play to standing room to a cer •tMnty.

PHILADELPHIA. July 17.-Jack John son stopped Bob Fltzslmmons in the sec ond round of a six-round boxing bout bo fore the Washington Sporting club. Fltz simmons did not show a trace of his former prowess, and It Is probable that Johnson could have stopped him in the opening round if he had cared to do so. The blow that put Fltzsimmons out was a light right to the jaw. The old man fell to the floor, and as he made "no attempt to rise the referee awarded Johnson the bout. The hissing which usually follows a knockout of this character was alisent, the spectators evi dently taking compassion on the former pugilistic star. Referee Keenan refused to act In tho ring because he heard that Fitzsimmons had a badly sprained arm. The manager of the club then entered the ring and watched the uneven match. In the opening round Johnson tapped Fltzsimmons when and where he chose, but the latter was unable to even land his famous counters.

At least thlß is the way hunters who have been out after the festive dove look at It, and they all declare that too many water holes and running streams are responsible for the scarcity of ltmlt bags. All over this section of the country the canyons which are usually dry after the end of May are filled with water. This gives the birds plenty of chance to quench their thirst without picking out any one watering place, and the result is that hunters find it much harder to locate their game. But the birds nre there all right, and what little shooting there is comes on a moat open order. As yet the birds are comparatively tamo, and do not mind the guns as much as they will later, and the field shooting is easy all around. The deer hunters are also howling about the superabundance of water in the moun tains where the big fellows are wont to congregate. With plenty of water holes to visit the deer manage to evade their encmi" s with more than usual success, and the number of bucks killed this sea son will undoubtedly fall below that of other years. Reports from the scene of activity fail to tell of any record kills, and about the only country hereabouts where a deer haw been toppled over is up around La Canada. A young fellow named Hall landed a buck yesterday in the hills back of tho Griffin ranch, getting it in comparatively open country. Henry Stockhrldge of the Burbank also sighted a small buck in that vicinity yes terday, but could not get close enough to try a shot. The animal was in thick brush, and as Stockbridge's time was lim ited he could not go after it. George Cline and Dick Garvey took a run out to the Garvey ranch Tuesday aft ernoon to take a try at the doves and mot with Indifferent success. Cllne's bag was but six birds, while Garvey fnred but lit tle better. They say that the birds stay in the close ouuntry more and don't have to come out to the water holes as they did in other seasons. Birds nre abundant in the country up above SauRUS, but the distance away from town keeps the local nimrods from going after them. The little valleys and flats which open out of the Santa Monica mountains are also well stocked, and they aro visited much moro than the Saugus fields. Although the woods are full of game wardens no arrests have been recorded for violations of the new license law. The fact that Count.- Clerk Keyes ran out of tags Borne time ago does not help matters much, but the hunters seem willing to pack around their receipt rather than take chances on being pinched. AUTOISTS EXPECT TO HOLD BIG CUP EVENT New Jersey Senate May Act Favor ably on Bill Which Will Permit Running of Van. derbilt Race By Associated Press. NEW YORK, July 17.— Secretary Fred erick H.

TELLS STORY OF EXPLOSION CAPTAIN OF BATTLEBHIP LAUDS MEN'S HEROISM SAYS ONE SAILOR GAVE LIFE FOR HIS FELLOWS Describes Terrible Scene Following Disaster on Board the Georgia In Which Nine Men Lost Their Lives By Associated Press. I BOSTON, July 17.— 0n board the ' Georgia in Boston harbor this afternoon ' Capt Henry McCrea told to the Asso ' elated Press the story of the on board the battleship on Monday which hns cost the lives of nine men ; of tho fnited States navy and caused Injury, In some cases probably ratal, to ' thirteen others. Cafct. McCrea said: •I was on the bridge making tho run i for the practice. I was taking observa- I tlons of each shot. As shot after shot 1 was fired from the eight-inch guns I saw ! we were beating the records of tho other ships ot the fleet. On the bridge I could : hear tho command from the after tur ret. So I knew when the next shot was °"I heard tho shout 'fire, 1 but there was no shot and then I saw men run aft and get the lire hose th.it Is always laid out in readiness whon firing Is going on. "I rushed to the after bridge near the turret to see what was the matter. Ihe water already was being poured Into the turret. Tho boatswain and Midshipman, Gravescroat led the way for their men with the hose. I tell you there was courage. No man know What had hap pened nnd no man know into what dan ger he might be rushing. But eight men never 'thought of self or of danger. This brave act will look well on their records. Bring Out the Dead "Then they began to bring out the men One of the tlrst was the one In whoso hands the powder was when it flnshod Ho was laid down on top of the lower turret with a blanket under his head. I went to him. I could not recognize him. His hands were burned to tho bone. The flesh was gone. With those hands raised above the chest and the tips of the fingers bent toward each other I could hear him whisper: " "Oh, God, Oh, God, Oh, God!' He could not move his lips enough to utter other words. "I bent closer and said to him: 'My clear fellow, God has henrd your prayer. He was breathing but in short gasps. He soon died. "Tho men were brought out as fast as they could be taken from the turret. Most of them felt relief as soon as they got to tho open air. The gases from smokeless powder are terrible. That's what kills. The external burns are hid eous, but to breath that stuff is fatal. One Man Escapes "One man in that turret was not hurt, Midshipman Kimball, and I do not un derstand how he .could have escaped. He helped take out the men. He, too, showed grit after the shock he had met. "Lieut. Goodrich set an example to his men that none but a courageous officer could set when he plunged right into the flame and gases to lead the way to safety. I told his father, Rear Admiral Goodrich, that it was such officers as he that make a great navy. His example will not be forgotten. After he got to the deck he threw himself overboard. If our launch had not been near by on Its return from the examination of targets he would have been drowned. "Probably one act of ono of the men prevented a far greater disaster. I don't know his name. He Is dead. Ho and one other stood by the second gun that had Just been loaded. The last powder bag that had been put in was protrud ing a little from the gun. When he saw the flash, Instead of dashing for the lad der to save himself, he crowded home the charge in the gun and with the help of other men got the gun closed before the flame reached the bag. Gave Life for Others "If the flame had touched the bag there would have been an awful explosion, for the powder was confined in the gun and would not have flashed as the other did, but would have exploded. Not a man in the tunet would have been left alive and other damage might have been done. That man gave his life for others. "I am told President Roosevelt has In quired about a man that gave his life in closing the shutter from the ammuni tion room to save tho ship from blowing up. It would be very wrong to have a story like that go out, because I can not find that there is any foundation for it, or any need for any man to make an attempt to do anything of the sort, but if the president wants heroism let him look up this brave man who stood by his gun to save the rest. "Since wo went back to the target grounds the men have been shooting better than before the accident. We haven't finished practice and we are go ing back to the targets and break the record." f Inquiry Board Acts The national hoard of Inquiry appointed to investigate the cause of the explosion on last Monday visited the United States naval hospital at Chelsea today to take the depositions of the Injured men. The board of inquiry is composed of Capt. Seaton Schrooder of tho battleship Virginia. Capt. W. W. Kimball of the bat tleship Now Jersey, Lieutenant Comman der Mark Bristol, chief ordnjfnee officer of the fleet, and Lieut. Kenneth Castleman, attached to the flagship Virginia. The hoard carefully inspected the turret in which the explosion occurred and took the evidence of such officers and men as aro familiar with conditions about the turret at the time and who witnessed the affair. The Georgia steamed up the harbor this afternoon and the board transferred its inquiry to the naval harbor at Chelsea. Owing to the critical condition of the In jured men In the hospital, four of whom it was feared might not survive the night, the surgeons in charge permitted the board to examine only three of the Injured men. Among the naval officers of tho fleet there is a growing sentiment to reject th« theory that the powder was set afire by a stray spark from the funnels of the ship. It is known that the crew of tho after superimposed turret had an Intense zeal to become the crack crew of the fleet, and it is thought that overzealousness and disre gard of precaution in rapid handling of the guns might have caused the tragedy, the explosion being due possibly to un turned grains of powder in the breech igniting the bag of powder. Tonight it was learned that the dead seaman" known as George Miller enlisted under an assumed name. His right name was Benjamin Krelger. He left his home in Brooklyn and enlisted in the navy. His mother Is believed to be either in Los Angeles or some place in Georgia. Condemning Right of Way By Associated Press.

PASADENA, July 17.— There is now a movement on foot to make the top floor of the new Chamber of Commerce building headquarters for the Overland club, the fashionable organization of South Euclid avenue. At a meeting of the directors of the club tonight a proposition from the owners of the building will be submitted and considered. Pasadena club members have in mind the luxurious quarters of the millionaire Jonathan club of Los Angeles on the top floor of the Huntington building, and think they have something as nice here. Many new members have been added to the Overlanders in the past few months and the need of more room than the pres ent quarters afford is now apparent. In the new building there would be ample room and a magnillcent outlook over tho San Gabriel valley and the moun tains. Pasadona's tallest building, the Chamber of Commerce on -East Colorado street, is approaching completion. Ono of the four store rooms on the ground floor is already occupied by the Kacket store. Plastering in the office rooms on the upper floors is nearly done. This will be much the largest and most expensive office building in Easadena. It is built on a lot 117x1123 feet in size, front ing Colorado street and Broadway, at the northwest corner of these two central streets. It is a steel frame and pressed buff brick structure, six stories high, with four store rooms and 200 offices, and Is being erected at a cost of $300,000. While this is known as the Chamber of Commerce building and is being erected by a corporation chartered as tho Cham ber of Commerce company it is a private enterprise, having nothing whatever to do with a local chamber of commerce. The board of trade and the Merchants' asso ciation, which represent what a chamber of commerce would stand for in Pasadena, have leased and nicely fitted up commo dious quarters at 43 West Colorado street, and will not even occupy the new build ing, at least in the near future. It was expected when the building enter prise was begun that the board of trade and Merchants' association would occupy quarters in the new structure, perhaps ons whole lloor, but the negotiations to this end~tailed. So now there will exist what will appear an odd situation to strangers, a chamber of commerce building with no public com mercial body having anything to do with It. One of the upper floors of this building would be a magnificent location for a commercial and advertising exhibit for the city, and it Is possible that at some future time such an exhibit will be provided for. At present, with the very complete ex hibit of the Los Angeles chamber of com merce so near at hand, it was felt that the local organizations for advertising the city would not be justified in Installing an expensive exhibit in Pasadena. +-+-* ! PRESIDENT'S SON IS ON VISIT AT SANTA BARBARA Guatemalan Says Affairs in His Coun try Are Not .So Bad as Re ported — Is Enthusiastic Horseman SANTA BARBARA, July 17. -Diego Es trada Cabrera, eldest son of the presi dent of Guatemala, is a guest at the fashionable Potter hotel here, accom panied by an officer of the Guatemalan army, Col. de Clalremont. Whatever may be the precarious posi tion in which his father rinds himself, the son does not seem to worry. He Is living in the best of style. He Is an en thusiastic horseman, and goes every day for a ride into the country. He denies that he is a refugee from Guatemala. "I have been in this country since last September," he says. "I shall leave for Europe very soon, and after a year spent there shall return ,home. "I do not think the situation in my country is so bad as represented. The attempt on my father's life was very nearly successful, but his enemies have been suppressed, and I do not think they will try it again, soon." The last word he adds with a smile that conveys his opinion of the nature of the repressive measures which his father Is using. REV.
