Fails to Receive McCarey Offer, but Is Free to Consider It Upon
Receipt—Has Asked Recently to Be Given Mtach Here and
Is Known to Desire Scrap with Pueblo Fireman—May
Meet January 18, but Other Dates Will Be Agree
able, Even if Set Over Until Next February.
Memsic Is Gaining Many Followers
ACCORDING to the way Manager McCarey has it figured out,
there is less than one chance in ten thousand that he will fail
to match Sain Langford and Jim Flynn for a ten-round scrap
before his Naud Junction club this month. .Manager Woodman, for
Langford, wrote to McCarey a few days ago especially pleading for.
a match for Sam. Since that time Langford has been matched to
light Dixie Kid the night of January 10. Owing to his presence in
the Tennessee city, Langford has been unable to get in communica
tion with McCarey to receive the offer of the Flynn match. Mc-
Carey wired him last night at Memphis and expects to receive a
favorable reply this morning. There is some doubt as to the date
of the scrap, as January 18 may be a bit too early for Langford to
get here and train properly, but the match is as good as made, and
will be staged within the next four weeks.
Langford is an excellent drawing
card anywhere ha Is staged, and this
is especially true as regards Los An
geles. The hefty negro mauler has
made himself popular with local fans
by his unassuming and quiet manner
and by his championship work in the
ring. He outranks all other negro
fighters because of these facts. He
copped Flynn when they met last
time, turning the trick with one punch
In the first round. Flynn became a bit
too careless and did not see it coming
In time to take siding. „-
Notwithstanding this speedy result,
Flynn is more than anxious to get on
a return match, and as soon a3 word
comes that Langford has accepted the
offer Flynn will settle down to hard
training. He will bet a small fortune
that Langford does not put him away
in one round next time and says he
really believes he can whip the demon.
McCarey prefers to stage this bout
January If, during Aviation Week, but
it looks so good to him that he ■wfU
put it on regardless of the date. Flynn
wants to fight as often as possible,
and Langford is more anxious than
Flynn in this regard. It seems, there
fore that there is only a mere chance
that negotiations ■will fail.

Training Nearly Ends
Both boys are working hard and
each is supremely happy in the belief
that the match is something of a ben
efit fur himself. Despite that Memsic
already has defeated him at this dis
tance, AVolgast seems to believe he
has grown so much better as a fighter
in recent weeks that he will not have
to extend himself to win. In this he
may be mistaken, so he will not neglect
training for the affair.
Another change was made in the
Friday night preliminary card yester
day, when Arthur Collins declined the
match with Jack Tippptts, owing to a
lack of time in which to get back into
training. This bout \\ i off

Captain Lee's Indoor baseball team
was declared the pennant winner In
the Polytechnic Indoor Baseball league
last Monday, when Captain Paul Basle
forfeited the deciding game. Those
that compose the winning club are:
Lee (captain), Blasdell, .Adams, Sans
trum, Haney, Halns, Casey, Brown
and Metz.
Jay Davidson
manager, stockholder, horseman and
contract employer of a jockey iunl was
interested in the bookmaking end of
the sport, there is mud] to justify the
belli f that he will flnd it difficult to
convince Condron and his associates
that be la rut it leii to another term in
office The fact that his hoi:
ment was dlaquallfled at the fall meet-
Ing for carrying five or ten pounds less
than the scheduled weight doei not
help his causa any.
In this connection it is justice to J.
W. Hayman of Los Angeles, whose
name appeared upon the programs of
the fall meeting as clerk of the scale?,
to inform the public that he did not
fill that position, having been trani
ferred to the post of associate judge
before any trouble occurred in the
matter of weight, and had absolutely
nothing to do with the weighing part
of tin: game. It is to his credit that
when tfie hlßh-welght events sudden
ly became popular (?) there he was
askod to accept the associate judge
ship and relinquish the office of clerk
of the scales. Hayman is well known
throughout the country for his long
and honorable official career on the
turf and his name never has been
connected with any scandal of the
turf. It Is a safe bet that there would
have been no trouble at the scales had
he been kept on the job.
John Harding, happy and cheerful
despite several days of marooned ex

floods, arrived yesterday from Salt
Lake City and will remain for a few
days visiting friends and relatives. He
intends going to San Francisco to take
a whirl at the Emeryville game. John
did not come back broke, because he
is too discreet, bvit he did not go into
ecstasies regarding the prospects for
making a living following the races in
the tall brush.
Barney Oldfleld, the daredevil auto
mobile racer, returned yesterday from
San FrandSCO to fill his southern en
gagements. Barney claims Los An
geles as his home, and, like everybody
else who has lived here, finds the at

Tom Jones created quite a stir at
Jeffries' cafe yesterday morning when
he walked up to the bar and asked the

employed by the chump of champs,
the bar boy did not tumble for a few
moments, but he finally—and silently
walked over to the case goods depart

Continued knocking of the Juarez
race? meeting and having fun at its
expense aroused a prominent horse
ui in to write a letter to the sporting
editor in which he vouches tot the
facts set forth. He says that the daily
attendance has been gradually to
creasing and that it was 50 per cent
better last week than during any pre
vious week of tile meeting. Ho pays
the climatic conditions are ideal now
and that the game has improved so
much that eight books are operating.
He winds up by saying that "the
meeting will run out its ninety days
notwithstanding the knockers, and
planned improvements will be made
without delay In anticipation of a
more successful season next winter.

Pertinent Questions Put to Prisoner
as to Flaws in His Story
Are Met With No
Mr, and Mrs. A. G. Stone, In whose
Home at Han Gabriel Morgan Sliive
ley, a Pacific Electric conductor, re
ceived wounds which resulted In his
death early Sunday morning, si ill are
held in the county jail and no charges
have been filed against either of them.
Both Sheriff Hammel and Detective
Brown of the district attorney's office
worked all yesterday on the case and
took up every shred of evidence in
their possession.
"We are morally convinced who the
culprit is," said Sheriff Hammel yes
terday, "but we must prove that the
person accused committed the. crime."
Searching examinations behind closed
doors were conducted at the district
attorney's offices yesterday and Detec
tive Brown appeared well pleased with
the result, although no definite state
ment was. given out. An investiga
tion of the past life of Mr. and Mrs.
A. G. Stone and Shiveley is being con
ducted, which, it in believed, will be
productive of results, although this
may take several da] s.
Stone Confined Closely
Stone was confined closely yesterday,
no persons other than his attorneys
being allowed to Interview him. Ho
still maintains an air of Indifference,
although admitting that circumstances
point to him as the guilty party. Late
in the afternoon Stone made a state
ment through one of his attorneys.
The man in whose homo it is believed
his supposedly best friend met a
frightful death still adheres to his
story that he believes Mexicans entered
the house early Sunday morning ami
attacked Shlveley. When the weak
points of his statement were pointed
out to him he simply replied: "I
know things look bad for me."
In his statement •dellveied through
his attorneys yesterday, Stone said:
"On the night that this affair hap
pened my wife and I retired about 9
o'clock, leaving the lamp burning for
Shiveley as usual. Toward- morning
we heard, practically at the same
time, a cry of 'Help! Help!' from
Shiveley. My wife and I got up Im
mediately and I started downstairs.
As I neared the foot of the stairs I
heard a crash of glass and turned back
to procure my revolver, which, In my
excitement, I had forgotten. I got
my gun, loaded the weapon, and came
down, firing n shot in the house. All
was quiet, although I found blood over

New York's Chief Executive, Just In.
ducted Into Office, Receives Pred.
ecessor's Enemy in Cordial
Manner at City Hall
[Associated Press]
NEW YORK, Jan. 4.—The Tammany
tiger took ore his hat to William J.
Gaynor again today.
Charles P. Murphy, leader of Tam
many, walked up the city hall steps
to call on New York's new Democratic
mayor, and ho waited his turn in an
ante room just as others did.
When lie wns received he spent an
hour- in conference.
Tammany Hall has gotten pretty
slim patronage from Judge Gaynors
hands, although without Tammany
behind him he probably would never
have been mayor of Greater New
York—not on the Democratic ticket,
at any rale.
When Murphy left the mayor's of
flce In; was besieged by interviewers.
"Did you meat the mayor by ap
pointment?" asked- one.
"Ask tho mayor," was his re-ply.
' "Do you expect any appointments?"j
"Ask the mayor."
"You look happy and smiling," sug
gested one.
"I always am." said Mi-. Murphy.
Judge Gaynor discussed the Tam
many leader's visit more freely. Their
relations were cordial always since ho
first met Mr. Murphy a year ago.
Mr. Murphy had called merely to
offer congratulations. They had dis
cussed no appointments, at least no
names. Whether Mr. Murphy would
call again lie did not know.
linidentallyr though, the mayor did
not speak of it, it was Mr. Murphy S
first visit to the city hall since ho whs
commissioner of docks in tho Van
Wyck administration.
His relations with Mr. MeClellan
were not always cordial, and never
onoe during the MeClellan administra
tion was Mr. Murphy a caller.
This, tho second official day of tho
new city administration, started off on
businesslike principles. William A.
Prendergast, new Republican-Fusion
comptroller, Issued a sweeping order
that "joy tiding" in municipal auto
mobiles In all departments must cease.
He announced that any employe oc
the city above the grade of laborer,
excepting policemen, firemen and
school teachers, must have time cards,
upon which will be recorded their com
ing and going when on duty. He am
not say whether the mayor and com
missioners would be Included.
In this way the comptroller hopes
to ascertain just how much of Now
York's $80,000,000 salary Hat la earned.
