JONES CALLS BLUFF OF HESTER
IN NELSON-WOLGAST NEGOTIATIONS
SIGNS ARTICLES PREPARED BY NORTHERN PROMOTER WITH
ONLY CHANGE IN NAME OF STAKEHOLDER
Puts Issue Squarely Up to Him by Agreeing to Everything Except
That Club Forfeit Must Be Deposited in Cash with John
Clarke — Writes Letter Fully Explaining Demands and
Requires Boy Operator to Show Good Faith or Lose
Fight—Milwaukee Dutchman Disgusted and Is in •
Favor of Calling Off All Further Negotiations
JAY DAVIDSON
SID HESTER, promoter of the mythical fight club somewhere
above the Tehachapi, responded yesterday to the ultimatum of
Tom Jones, manager for Ad Wolgast, with a sixty-five word
telegram, sent collect, in which he avoided the main issue and main
tained his procrastinating tactics as to the deposit of the club guar
antee of $2500 in cash that he will pull off the Nelson-Wolgast
championship scrap according to agreement. These sixty-five words
were so unsatisfactory that Woigast advised Jones io reply in CuCCt
that negotiations are called off, but the more patient manager com
promised by writing to Hester, enclosing the articles of agreement,
properly signed, and giving the promoter one other chance to make
good. Forty-eight hours will tell the tale—whether Hester is four
flushing, as now seems to be the case, or whether he simply is a
erees country boy with no idea of business methods.
Hester wired as follows: "If you
mean business, sign and return arti
cles. Then, as long as Dillon don't suit,
I will deposit with Anglo-California
Trust and Banking company $2509 cash.
You deposit like amount with your
bank and have same transferred. Sure
ly they are more responsible than
Clarke. You want cash forfeits, now
set busy. I have waited upon you for
■ a long time." This message was sent
"collect $2.05." Jones promptly read
the telegram and declined to pay the
charges, so Mr. Hester got another les
son in advanced and jJown-to-date
methods in vogue among real fight
promoters who know their business.
' Jones laughed when he read the tele
gram. Wolgast snickered, and then
the crowd that was standing by mar
veled at the supreme nerve of the man
who has earned an unenviable reputa
tion as an intermeddling match buster
and, seemingly, insincere when it
comes to a showdown for him to make
good.
In order to fully test the sincerity
of Hester, and at the same time show
beyond all question that he Is dealing
square cards, Jones dismissed all idea

ther with a man who has shown all
along an utter lack of knowledge of

changing them in one particular only,
that of substituting the name of John
Clarke for Tom Dillon as stakeholder,
and forwarded them to Hester. Ac
companying the articles is a letter
clearly setting forth to Hester in terms
plain enough for a schoolboy to un
derstand just what the alleged pro
moter must do in order "to close ne-

ALTHOUGH Bakersfleld will not be
represented by a baseball team in
■*-*• the State league, San Jose having
received the vacant berth in that or
ganization, the oil metropolis of the
San Joaquin valley will put in the field
one of the strongest independent base
ball clubs in the state of California the
coming season. At a recent meeting of
the directors of the Bakerstteld Base
ball association it was decided to in
. orporate the association, with a capi
tal of $10,000, and at an enthusiastic
meeting a great portion of this amount
was subscribed. Brick Devereaux was
elected the playing manager, while J.
P. Carroll was chosen, to succeed him
self as the business manager of the
organization.. That Bakerstield is a
( good ball town was shown by a state
ment presented at the meeting, which
showed the gross receipts of last sea
son's games played on the home
grounds to total over $10,000. When
Brick leaves to take his new position it
is expected that several of the local
crack players now playing winter ball
, will go with the veteran.
Following is the schedule of the Mc-
Cormicks for several Sundays to come:
McCormicks vs. Ventura at Ventura,
January 16; McCormicks vs. Pasadena
at Pasadena, January 23; McCormicks
vs. San Diego at San Diego, January
29 and 30; McCormicks vs. Occidentals
at Chutes park, February 5 and 6.
The Occidental colored team has com
piled the following schedule: Occident
als vs. All Stars at Chutes park, Janu
ary 16; Occidentals vs. San Diego at
San Diego, January 22 and 2:1; Occi
dentals vs. Santa Ana at Santa Ana,
January 29 and 30; Occidentals vs. Mc-
Cormicks at Chutes park, February 5
and 6; Occidentals vs. Santa Ana at
Chutes park, February 13.
It is expected that the All Stars will
close a data with the Santa Ana team
at Santa Ana for February 6.
Ted Easterly, when leaving Cleveland
last fall, was induced to sign a two
years 1 contract with that club. Press
ure was brought to bear to have the
clever backstop attach his name to one
for a five-year period, but Ted held off
on this" proposition. Since arriving in
the city from the Imperial valley, where
lie has been playing with the El Centro
team, Easterly has been approached by
Manager Crolic of the Santa Ana club
to receive Hendricks and Johnson in
the double-header they are to play
; against the San Diego team in the
.southern city next Saturday and Sun
. day. This proposition has met with
Ihe approval of the Clevelander, and
the mighty Walter Johnson can cut
. . loose with all his smoke and craft in
the coming game, as his shoots will be
•properly; taken care of.
' Outfielder Coy of the Vernon club will
be back at his post with that team the
1 online season.

bra preferred. Answer through The
Uarald, or telephone 1012, or Main 3180.
W. H. Palmer, manager of the San
Diego club, Is passing a few days In
the city.
The continuation of last Sunday's 0
to 0 twelve-Inning struggle between
Newton's All-Sttrs and the Occidentals
will be staged Sunday at Chutes park.
Since this last hard contest the rivalry
between the two teams is keener than
ever, and Sundays exhibition should
gotlations successfully. Upon receipt
of the letter Hester is required to tele
graph his reply.
Hester will have to show his hand
when he receives Jones' letter. The
articles of agreement drawn by Hester
are unchanged except as regards the
stakeholder, Jones substituting John
Clarke for Tom Dillon. Jones In
formed Hester in the letter that if the
articles of agreement, as changed and
signed, were satisfactory, lie should
deposit $2500 in cash with Clarke and
have Clarke wire Jones to that effect.
Upon receipt of the telegram from
Clarke, Jones will deposit his forfeit
of $2500 with his local bank and have
It transferred to Clarke by telegraph.
If Hester complies with these emi
nently fair and reasonable terms he
will get the match. Otherwise, he will
stand convicted before the , sporting
public as a four-flusher and a match
buster purely and simply. It has been
suspected all along that he was acting
merely as a match .buster Instead of a
fight promoter, and it remains to he
proved whether he intends to stage this
light or merely break up the match
for McCarey out of pure devilishness.
Jones will take Wolgast to Wheeler
Springs this afternoon, and they will
remain there for a week or two resting
and recuperating. This trip will cost
Jones about $300 or more, and he is
making it in good faith, expecting Hes
ter to come through with the right
sort of stuff. In that event, Wolgast
will go to Frisco about February 1 and
begin training for the fight. Jones and
Wolgast have acted in good faith all
through the negotiations and are en
titled to more courteous and business
llke treatment from Hester.

PLANNING TO HOLD AN
AQUATIC PURSUIT RACE
Bimini Bath Management Arranging
to Introduce New Sport Here.
Others to Take It Up
Arrangements are being made at the
Bimini hot springs to hold an aquatic
pursuit race in the near future. This
will be the introduction of this branch
of water sports in Southern California
and as the race is said to be popular
elsewhere it is presumed it will become
a fixture in local water sports.
Tile entries for the evarit should not
exceed eight, one swimmer starts the
race and the others follow at a cer
tain distance, each contestant striving
to overtake the one ahead, and when
one is overtaken he withdraws from
the contest. This pursuit of the one
ahead continues until the race dwin
dles down to only one contestant, who
is declared the winner.
Prizes will be given at the Bimini
race. Several bath house managers in
Southern California ive expressed
the desire to have the sport added to
their list of water sports.

as Well as those who visit the

scenes along the primrose way every
afternoon. Tin- aviation fevet was
more nronounoed yesterday than at
any time since tin- airships began to

the Rlalto to collect ;i crowd Of one
or two thousand persons is to stand
oil iii the street or on the curb With
another conspirator and point to the
skies, look in the samp dircriion and
shako the fingers as if tracing the
flight of an airship. About 40U0 per
i sons between Second and Fourth
! streets on Spring yesterday afterndon
Cell tor tha old trick :tn<i gaaed for
long periods of time nt the skies in
an effort at.seeing an airship that was
not in sight. So intently did they look
that all of tin in were able to distinct
ly see the evening star directly over
head at broad A, despite the glare
of brilliant sunshijie. Tom Jones,
Jack Kipper and Hen Berry had heaps
of fun trying to show tha multitudes
the airship that was not there.
Tom Jones is to be highly com*uend
e'd by fair-minded sportsmen for his
stand tn the negotiations with Sid
Hester for the Nelson-Wolgast light.
It begins to look like Hester was en
gaged only in the task of breaking "P

In his efforts to get the match lor his
unnamed and unlocated club that may
never exist. Jones is looking after the
interests of Wolgast and is showing
rare business acumen in the manner
in which ha has conducted the nego
tiations.
Hen Berry and his three brothers,
Frank, Clarence and Fred, left last
night for Bakersfield to look over the
extensive oil interests there. Those oil
fields have made multimillionaires of
the Berrys and inasmuch as they al
ways have been high class sportsmen,
their good fortune is received with
much pleasure by their friends and
associates in the business and sport

how Danny Long is getting along be

Contracts for 1911 will be mailed to
all Angel players today and aa they
must report to Cap Dillon the last day
of February, it is expected that all con
tracts will bo signed and on file In the
club offices within a fortnight, For
tunately, there are no grievances or
salary questions to adjust this season.
Dillon begs to assure the fans that the
rag for next season will be captured
and brought back south without mifeh
trouble.
Gray is of the opinion that major
league players should not engage in
winter baseball games, owing to the
unreasonable risk taken thereby. A
player who engages in winter base
ball takes the risk of being injured
and put out of the game indefinitely,
accompanied by loss of salary and pos
sible reduction of his mothly stipend;
as the lase of Jack Bliss proves. Dnlly
is in excellent condition for spring
practice and will be one of the main
stays of the Washington club next
season if given a chance to work often.
Mexican Pete Everett may be a man
killer in the ring, but it seems that he
is taking an unusual risk of losing his
prestige in failing to train properly for
his scrap with Jim Cameron next
Tuesday night. Cameron is no bear in
the ring, but he is long enough and has
arms long enough to make a biff fat
overgrown boy hustle to get to him, as

BUICK AGENT SATISFIED
KAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 13.—Charles
S. Howurd, head of the Howard Au
tomobile company of San Francisco,
who are Pacific coast distributors of
Buieks and Oidsmoblles, has returned"
from Los Angeles with most encour
aging reports of conditions in the
south. "It is not a question of proph
esying what we believe will come to
pass when the busy season begins,"
said Howard, 'but it is already a fact,
and our Los Angeles branch has been
kept hard at work to its fullest ca
pacity through the entire winter sea
son, and our demonstrators are hardly
given a moment's rest. The recent
success of the Byick '40' in the fifty
mile race at Ascot park, following
ly upon the lH'd.s of winning Hint
milling race across the desert fnini
Loi Angeles to Phoenix, has materially
added to the popularity of tho Uuick
in those sections."
Arcadia village blacksmith. Before the
fight is h:,lf over Tuesday night Pete
may he wishing that he had trained a
bit more Industriously.
Molly Cray, the premier southpaw,
who was sold to the Washington
Americans last year, came in Wednes
day night from Laguna Beach, where
several coast and major league play
ers are passing the winter. Dully
came in to have a talk with his chief,
Jimmy McAleer, the new manager of
the senatorial aggregation.
Danny Webster is one local fighter
who assuredly has earned all the
honors ho lias attined In the ring.
Nothing has boon presented to hint.
Ho is training- just as hard for his fight
with Curly Ol'onnel as he would train
IT he uere. matched with Monto Attell
or Jimmy Walsh. This industry is onfi
of the explanations of his rise to the.
top of the heap, nnd it will lie a fur
ther explanation of why he will stay
there for a long time, if ho. is not the
undisputed champion of the world In
another year I am no good as a tight
prophet.
Zybszcko, or letters to that effect,
which means the imported wrestler
whan properly Interpreted, wants to
come to Los Angeles and wrestle Qotch
for the world championship. He s;iys
ho does, anyway, and Johnny Herman,
nil manager, corroborates the wish.
Gotch Win be along this way iv less
than two weeks and then this unpro
nouneable name may get an oppor
tunity to be attached to articles of
agreement If it can show anything that
will make a noise like a financial flurry.
Freddie Welsh writes an interesting
letter from London, in which he tolls
of a recent trip to Paris to attend the
Willie Lewtt-Bld Russell fight. His let
ter is made more interesting by tin
fact that lie discusses the fight situ
ation in Fiance and F^ngland at length
and talks about other fighters than
himself, a modesty that the average
fighter never attains. He says, how
ever, that he is anxiously awaiting
pome news from Hegewlsch and also
will welcome Mr. Patrick McFarland to
the hospitable shores of the tight little
isle.
Newi that Frank Picato has been
matched with Fighting Dick Hyland
at New Orleans probably puts an end
to discussion of a match between him
and Powell. Anyway, George Momsic
Is the logical candidate for this match
and since he has shown that he has
come back into his old-time form the
fans prefer to see him tie up with the
Frisco crack. This match would be
a great drawing card beyond all ques
tion.
Jimmy Griffliv, one of the new fight
promoters of Frisco, Is after Memsic
for a scrap January 2" with McCarthy
In the northern city. They exchanged
wires last night, discussing? terms, and
probably will arrive at an understand
ing today.
Dispatches toll us that the American
league magnates have decreed that
spik.es may be used by the players
next season. Spikes, they say, are es
sential to good playing and they can
find no substitute that would be satis
factory. Undoubtedly a soik with a
brick in it- or a machete would fill the
bill and do the work more humanely.
The Oakwood stock ranch, which
firm is composed of Mcl Lawrence and
Harry Comstock, both well known in
Los Angeles and Arcadia, cleaned up
handsomely yesterday at' Emeryville
with Velma G and Minnedocia, both
of "which stood out like sure winners.
They also own Buckthorn and Silvia
Fir, which are some better in class
than the other pair.

AUTO MAKING ON PAR
WITH OTHER LINES
Fully 200,000 Cars Scheduled for 1910
and They Will Be Made in
Twenty.One Styles
Motor car making now is a national
industry and on a par With any other
line of manufacturing in America.
This la bust evidenced by tlio show
which opened at Grand Central palace.
New York, New Year's eve, when 325
exhibitors showed product! from
every nook and corner of the United
States. That the industry is national
is proved, too, by the statistics show
ing the millions of dollars of
involved, the thousands of cars made
and sold and the thousands of em
ployes of motor car and motor car
parts factories.
Figures that are conservative iv
every way made it appear certain
that 200,000 motor cars are scheduled
lor 1010. They Will be made in twen
ty-one different states by 263 makers,
located as follows:
Michigan 49, Illinois 39, Indiana 30,
Ohio 30, New York 23, Pennsylvania
IS, Massachusetts 14, Missouri 12, Con
necticut 10, lowa 7, Minnesota 6, Wis
consin 5, New Jersey 4,, California 4,
Khode Island 3, Nebraska 2, Maryland
t, Colorado 1, Nevada 1, Texaa 1, Kan
sas 1.
Many Legitimate Makers
Of this nurrrbor it may be said that
100 are legitimate makers turning out
cars that are factors in the market.
Seventy-five others produce fewer than
seventy-five cars each and are little
heard of, while the remainder may bo
considered beginners whose products
may not get beyond the experimental
state. New York, for example, al
though credited in the above official
list with twenty-three makers, has not
more than seven substantial motor car
factories.
Taking eighty of these leading- mak
ers and compiling their estimates for
1910, coupled with the reports from
the parts makers and the inspection
made \Vhile visiting sixty-two prom
inent factories last spring, shows that
the 200,000 cars for next year will be
divided primarily among five states.
Michigan is king, for in 1910 it will
produce not fewer than 10:i,000 motor
curs Illinois will turn out 15,300; In
diana Ohio. 22,750; Wisconsin,
11,000; New York, 10,400; Massa
chusetts,4luu; Pennsylvania, 3250; Con
necticut, 2100.
Millions Invested
When it is taken into consideration
that the capital involved is between
$150,000,000 and $175,000,000, that there
are 5200 agents for motor cars through
out the country maintaining garages
and salesrooms, the whole employing
more than 200,000 employes, no ono
can deny that the making of motor
oars is now one of America's most im
portant industries.
With the rapid growth of the Indus
try there has been a general improve
ment in the good roads system
throughout the country and a general
increase in business among hotels and
madhouses and a general increase of
trade among tho hundreds of concerns
that BUPPIv parts, materials and acces
sories for tho motor car and its fol
lnwers.
