THE HERALD'S SPORTING NEWS 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 BY 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 Wolgast advised Jones to reply in effect lhat 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 gree?i country boy with no idea of business methods. Hester wired as follows: "If you gotiations successfully. Tlpon rece pt mean business, sign and return artt- of the letter Hester is required to telc < l.s. Then, as long as Dillon don't suit, graph his reply.

The aviation fever «as more pronounced yesterday than at any time nince the airships began 1" fly. All one has tv do nowadays along the Rlalto to collect a crowd of one or two thousand persons is to stand out In the street or on the curb with another conspirator and point to tin 1 skies, look in the same direction and shake the Sngers as if tracing tin; (light i>r an airship. About 4000 per j sons between— Bscond and Fourth i streets on Spring yesterday afternoon tell lor the old trick and gazed for long periods of time at the skies in an effort at.seeing an airship that was not in sight. So Intently did they look that all of them were able to distinct ly see the evening; star directly (iver | head at broad noon, despite the glare jof brilliant sunshine. Tom Jones, jack Kipper and Hen Berry had heaps of fun trying to show the multitudes the airship that was not there. _ Tom Jones is to be highly comniend e'd by fair-minded sportsmen for his stand In the negotiations with Sid I Hester for the Nelson-Wolgast fight. I It begins to look like Hester was on gaged only in the task of breaking up the match, Instead of bring in earnest 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 h© has conducted the nego tiations. Hen Berry and his three brothers, Frank, Clarence and Fred, left last night for Bakersfielcl 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 ing world. Hen vffll be gone until Mon day and may^o on to Frisco to see how Danny Long is getting along be fore he returns. Contracts for 1911 will be mailed to all Angel players today and as they must report to Cap Dillon the last day of February, it is expected that all con tracts will bo signed and on filn 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 mifch trouble. Gray is of the opinion that major league players should not engage In winter baseball game", 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 tho game indefinitely, accompanied by loss of salary and pos sible reduction of his mothly stipend/ as the lase of Jack Bliss proves. Dolly 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 big fat overgrown boy hustle to get to him, as he proved when he twice stopped the PREJUICIO IS LEFT AND MADMAN ROMPS Bedwell Sprinter Takes Mendota Han. dicap—Oakwood Stock Ranch Annexes Two Races with Its Velma C. and Minnedocia OAKLAND, Cat, Jan. 13.—Madman, one of the stars of the Bedwell string, won the Mendota handicap at Emery ville today in a heavy shower of rain.

Howard, head of the Howard Au tomobile company of San Francisco, who are Pacific coast distributors of Buicks and Oldsmobiles, 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 puss 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 Rulck '40' in the fifty mile race at Ascot park, following closely upon the heels of Winning Hint (rilling race across the desert from Loi Angelea to Phoenix, has materially added to thii popularity of tho Buick In those sections." Arcadia village blacksmith. Before the fight is half over Tuesday night Pete may be wishing that he had trained a bit more Industriously. Dolly Gray, the premier southpaw, v. Mo was sold to the Washington Americans last year, cane In YVc.inos- I day night from Laguna Beach, where several coast and major league play ers are passing tho winter. Holly came In to have a talk with his chief, Jimmy McAleer, the now manager of the senatorial aggregation. Danny Webster is one local fighter who assuredly lias oarned all the honors ho has attined in tho ring. Nothing has boon presented to him. He is training just as hard for his fight with Curly O'Connel as he would train if he wore matched with Monte Attoll | or Jimmy Walsh. This industry is one ; of the explanations of his rise to tho top of the heap, and it will be a fur- ! ther explanation of Why he will stay there for a long timo. Tf ho is not the t undisputed champion of the world In another year I am no good as a tight prophet. SSybfzcko, or letters to that effect, Which moans the imported wrestler when properly Interpreted, wants to come to Los Angeles and wrestle Gotch for the world championship. He says ho does, anyway, and Johnny Herman, his manager, corroborates the wish, notch will be along this way in less than two weeks and then this unpro nouncable name may pet 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 ho tells of a recent trip to Paris to attend the Willie Lewis-Sid Russell fight. His let ter in made more interesting by the fact, that lie discusses tho fight, situ ation in France and Kngland at length and talks ahout other fighters than himself, a modesty that the average fighter never attains. He says, how ever, that he is anxiously awaiting some news from Hegewlsch and also will welcome Mr. Patrick McFarland to the hospitable shores of the tight little Isle. News that Frank Picato has been matched with Fighting Dick Hylnnd at New Orleans probably puts an end to discussion of a match between him and Powell. Anyway, George Momsic is tho logical candidate for this match and since he has shown that he has come back into his old-timr. form the f.ms prefer to see him tie up with the Frisco crack. This match would be a great drawing- card beyond all ques tion. Jimmy GrifflrH 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 tell us that the American league magnates have decreed that spikes 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 lock with a brick in it- or a machete would fill the bill and do the work more humanely. The O.tkwood 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 Vclma C 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. PRINCESS INDUSTRY PROVES CLEVER FILLY Again Wins Juvenile Event at Juarez.

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 ami on a par with any other iinL' of manufacturing in America. This is best evidenced by tlio show which opened ;it Qrand Central palace. New York, New Year's eve, wlien 325 exhibitors showed products from every nook and corner of tlie United Stiiti-s. That the industry is national is proved, too, by the statistics show- Ing the millions of dollars ot involved, the thousands of cars made and sold and the thousands of em ployes of motor car and motor car parts factories. Figures that aio conservative iv every way made it appear certain that 200,000 motor cars are scheduled for 1910. They will bo made in twen ty-one different states by 263 makers, located as follows: Michigan 49, Illinois 39. Indiana 30, Ohio 30, New York 28, Pennsylvania 18, Massachusetts 14, Missouri 12, Con necticut 10, lowa 7, Minnesota 6, Wis consin 5, New Jersey 4,, California 4, Kliode Island 3, Nebraska 2, Maryland 2, Colorado 1, Nevada 1, Texas 1, Kan sas 1. Many Legitimate Makers Of this number 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 aro 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 While 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 102,000 motor cars. Illinois will turn out 15,300; In diana, 21,025; Ohio. 22,750; Wisconsin, 31,000; New York, 10,400; Massa chusetts,4loo; 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 thera are 5200 agents for motor cars through out the country maintaining garages and salesrooms, the whole employing more than 200,000 employes, no one tan deny that the making of motor cars 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 roadhousess and a geneval increase of trade among the hundreds of concerns that BUPplv parts, materials and acces sories for the motor car and its fol lowors.
