it became almost unbearable. Brilliant

Seals took up the running in the fifth

I Angels were to be treated to a dose of

always seemed to have the Indian sign.
The .Seal fielders were backing up
Oscar in greVt fashion and were doing
. so many sensational stunts and per

chances to scon* that Kid Mohler ac

But the Angels and their loyal friends
in the grand stand and bleachers had
a : different. idea and never gave up
hope. --~« ,

Sports Widely Differ in Opinions as to Probable Victor and Agree
Upon Giving White Boy Shade the Best of the Odds.
Thirty-eight Rounds of Mauling Scheduled
at McCarey's Pavilion
THE betting sports have Installed
Leonard Lauder as favorite at
10 to 9 to win his fight tonight
with Bubbles Robinson at McCarey's
pavilion, and despite that the boys are
graduates from the local prelim col
only, the speculators are putting up
real coin on the choice of winner. To
the average fight fan the match ap
pears to be the most evenly balanced
card that McCarey has arranged In a
long time and In most cases the odds
would be even-money-take - your
choice, but the betting fans have
agreed that Lauder may have a shade
the best of the fight on dope and for
this reason the odds have been set at
the figures named.
Ordinarily prelim boys are unable to
arouse enough interest In their fighta
to excite the gambling blood of the
fans, but any time two fighters of any
sort of class are so evenly matched as
Lauder and Robinson a great fight
naturally is expected to result and
opinions of the fans are widely sepa
rated. Proof that the Lauder-Robin
son scrap has aroused an unusual de
gree of interest Is found in the fact
that It has proved to be a warm bet
ting match and the ticket sales add
testimony to the popularity of the
match. ,
The scrap will be a pretty exhibition
of scientific boxing, with enough stiff
punching to satisfy any fan who dotes
on rough house work. Lauder never
has been whipped, although he has
frightened his friends several times
by tackling larger, heavier and more
experienced opponents. But confi
dence In him was Inspired by th« reg
ularity with which he brought home
the winner's share of the purse. The
fans are willing to support a consist
ent winner and such a fighter Is Lau
Lauder Has Big Job
He is remarkably clever for one so
young at the game, has great speed,
good footwork, Is a fine ring general,
cool headed at all times, game in taking
punishment and while not being a
knockout specialist, he has a punch
that stings and one which his op
ponents have learned to respect. He
ha 3 what the fans are pleased to term
class when they want to express the
superlative of admiration for a fighter
and long since he has become a main
event scrapper.
Robinson was discovered and devel
oped by McCarey, as was Lauder, and
under the tutelage of Joe Gans he has
Improved wonderfully In the scientific
end of the game. Always a clever
boxer, he has learned many of the fine

The challenge of John Mlddlesky, the

offers $100 to the man who will throw
him within twenty minutes, has been
accepted by Starr Roberts. The bout
is to be wrestled at Chutes park im
medtatJly after the ball game Sunday.
Roberts weighs 210 pounds, but says
he will make up for the difference in
weight by tiring the Indian and then

points of the game from the great mas
ter of art and in his recent fights he has
shown an Inclination to mix it with his
opponents, at which times his punch
has startled those at ringside, who pre
viously had refused to credit him with
anything that resembled a wallop.
He will have a distinct advantage
over Lauder in that he Is taller and has
a longer reach, while his punch Is
stlfTer and more In evidence. Few fans
will believe that Lauder has anything
on Bubbles in cleverness and speed, and
while Lauder has whipped more promi
nent fighters than Bubbles, he has not
whipped Bubbles yet. U Is the best
fight In the world for the betting sports
to stay off of, as the boys are too evenly
matched for good Judgment to figure
out either as a sure winner. It is ex
pected, however, that It will be a pret
ty fight to watch and the ten rounds
should be required In full to enable the
spectators to arrive at a decision as to
the winner.
Webster Is Back In Ring
Danny Webster always has been pop
ular with the fans because he puts so
much action Into any fight In which he
engages and because he Is forever ham
mering away for a knockout, wtilch he
usually scores. He Is returning to the
game after a vacation of about three
months, and Is matched with a young
wonder from Ban Francisco whom re
ports credit with ability to defeat Dan
ny. Now If this newcomer. Tommy
Hennessey, can whip Webster decisive
ly, he will win a home by turning the
trick, and until he performs the stunt
local fans will be from Missouri. Web
ster adds class to the card and Is a
legitimate contender for the 116-pound
Mike Kutchos, a chesty little Greek
who hits like a mule kicking, will give
Jap Oyama a longer route In which to
prove his claims of superiority. Kut
chos obtained a decision over Oyama in
their previous scra~ at six rounds, and
Eddie Robinson has been clamoring for
a return match for his Jap over a long
er route. Eddie has been instructing
Oyama in the art, and predicts that the
Oriental will take Kutchos Into camp
via the knockout route. All of which
means a hustling fight all the way.
Prank Plcato, a recently discovered
mauler of good promise, will get a real
tryout when ho tackles Oscar Astle, a
more experienced fighter, who has a
good -ecord in the ring in Colorado.
Jimmy Donovan, who made a hit with
the fans in his first appearance a few
months ago, takes on Young Stadllle in
the curtain raiser for six rounds, and
it will be a hummer until one of them
drops for the count, which seems Inev

High school players are on pins and

the other night in not granting them
permission to play In Sunday games
where semi-professional players are

ferty, the crack pitcher of Polytechnic
high school, desires to play, but is pre

as much about an amateur now," said
Lafferty, "as I would know if I never
had attended this meeting."
Notwithstanding the fact that the A.
A. U. has ruled that if any high school
player takes part in any such game he
will prejudice his amateur standing,
several players say they will play, and
if it comes to a showdown the matter
will be taken to the courts to be de

yesterday, renewing old acquaintances
and at the same time witnessing the

I found Kid Moliler, junior, yesterday
afternoon playing ball with the "gang"
down on Colyton street, and when he
spied me he bawled out: "I am going

good, too, like my dad."
The friends of Bertie Whaling of the
Portland team are arranging a warm
"reception for him when he arrives next

By the way, speaking of the Whaling
family, they cannot be beat on the dia

Greatest Race of the American Turf
to Be Run This Afternoon at
Sheepshead Bay—Has Gross
Value of $25,000*
I By Associated Prese.
NEW YORK, June 18.—All roads will
lead to the Sheepshead Bay race track
tomorrow for the twenty-fifth running
of the historic Suburban handicap. Fif
teen horses will run. At their head is
Ballot, a son of Voter Cerito, carrying
top weight, 127 pounds. Ballet's stable
mate, Celt, a fleet 3-year-old Comman
do colt, is eligible, and if he goes will
carry 106 pounds, and with either Bal
lot or Celt J. R. Keene hopes to win
his first Suburban.
August Belmont's 3-year-old Hast
ings colt, Fair Play, which, with 111
pounds up, horsemen generally believe
will take a lot of beating, also will
start. Master Robert, Dorante and
King James, all high class animals,
bring up the 3-year-old division.
Precedent is somewhat against a
3-year-old capturing the race, for, from
the previous twenty-four years of run
ning of the classic, only one youngster
has done it—Africander, in 1903. The
entries for the Suburban, with weights

All the turf world on both sides of
the Atlantic is interested in the result
of the Suburban, as It is the greatest
race of the American turf today, ana
always brings out the highest class in
the 3-year-old and older divisions. Los
Angeles followers of the ponies are In
terested more than ordinarily because
Montgomery, which won the Burns
and California handicaps last winter
and was raced r.t Santa Anita in tho
closing weeka of the meeting, will go
to the poet to try for glory and the
winner's share of the $25,000 guaran
teed offering as the Hildreth candi
date. Although Montgomery Is the
only Santa Anita racer named to go to
the post, half h! dozen others are eli
gible and one or more may be added at
the last moment.
The Suburban has succeeded the
American Derby as the greatest race
of the year on the American turf. It
will have a guaranteed value of 125,000
and will be worth {16,800 to the owner
of the winning horse. It is one and one
quarter miles and is for 8-year-olds and
upwards. The stake was established
in 1884, when it was won by Gen. Mon
roe. Since then such great horses as
Pontias, Troubador. Racelatid, Salva
tor, Montana, Henry of Navarre, Ben
Brush, Imp, Kinley Mack, ..lcedo. Gold
Heels, Africander, Hermis, Beldame,
Go Between and Nealon have won It.
Go Between, the great horse that
John Shields brought to Los Angeles
last winter to prepare for a hard sum^
mer campaign at New York and after
wards sold to Phil Chirm, won the race
in 1906. Nealon, bred at Barney Schrle
ber's stud In Missouri and raced as a
2-year-old and 3-year-old on .the Pa
cific cbast, won it last year, beating
Montgomery, which raced at Sa"nta
Anita last winter. Nealon and Mont
gomery are eligible this year, but It is
probable that Nealon will not start.
Uncle, for which Hildreth entertained
such great hopes last winter, bas been
retired and will not start. Rifleman,
owned by R. F. Carman and which did
a mile in 1:37 3-5 at Santa Anita last
winter, also is eligible and may go to
the post.
