Morris Bloom, the clever Chicago light
weight whom Joe Levy brought to Los An
geles to begin a chase after the lightweight
championship, made an inauspicious start
last night when he wan lucky to (tot I draw
in hi» ten-round debut with Kiel Daiton.
In the early rounds lie seemed to bo doing
nicety and sure to outpoint the spaghetti
champion, but h« weakened in the Ins:

Dalton was outclassed as far as clever
boxing goes, as Bloom kept sticking his left
Into the mush of Dalton ■until It eeemed
that It might got stuck In the mire after
awhile, but Kiddo did not falter for a
moment and kept on slamming away with
rights and lefts that got to th» i.hlcago
iboy's stomach and ribs with great regu
larity and effect. Bloom rallied In the ninth

work, but In the final round, when both

Jihln« Dalton. It was a good fight and the
fane had plenty of opportunity to yell their
heads off, regardless of who they war. root-
Ing for. The fight by detail follows:
Neither did any damage or any very effective
work In the opening round, sparring ann
clinching mostly, with Daiton aggressively
forcing the issue! Bloom did a .Tack O'Brien
etunt with his feet and hands In bong
constantly on the move and avoiding anything
that looked dangerous.
Bloom opened up nicely IB the second, when
Tialton came running to met him In the center
of the ring, and showed a punch that was a
most effective accompaniment to his clever
ness He Jarred Daiton several times with
I pretty r.irht hooks and tippercuts, and easily
had the shade in this round.
Dalton went after Bloom sgirresstvely In
the third, and while he stopped many a.
straight left with his mouth, which soon he
gan to grow red with a tiny stream of claret,
he did some effective work and had a slight
shade at the gong. Tie sat Bloom on his
haunches with a left hook to the jaw as they
broke out of an early clinch and kept Bloom
on the go all the time.
Dalton continued to Increase his lend In
the fourth by an oggre?slvo policy which was
most effective, despite the footwork and clev
erness of Bloom. Palton played his right
effectively to the wind and ribs and occasion
ally chased It over the head. Bloom u«ed a
right uppercut that was a dandy and effective,
but he could not Flow down the spaghetti

The final round was fought desperately by
Jmth boys In an effort at puttlnE a winning
touch upon a close score. Each punished the
other with stiff punched and swings to the
body and head, and at the eong it was about
on even thing: for the round.
Cornell Fefeats Fusco
The first preliminary was a six-round bout
t>etwoen Willie Cornell and Mike Fuuco, wel
terweights, neither of which seemed to know
anything at all about tin- business In which
they were engaged. They were so awkward
that they fell down and tumbled over the
ropes In their wild rushes and awing*, but
they did some slugging at that. The affair
■was so unsatisfactory to the fans that they
threw oranges into the ring and expressed
their disapproval in hoots. Cornell probably
had a shade the better of whatever slight
milling was done, hut he achieved nothing to
he proud of. Artie Reynolds, the new pre
liminary referee, made his maiden appearance
In the local ring and handled this bout, Ha
tied nothing 10 do beyond assisting the? clum
■y fighters to arise from the mate after they
had stepped on each other's toes and fallen.
Rees Stops McFarland
The second preliminary was a classy exhi
bition between Kid Rees and Tommy McKar-
Jand. scheduled to go ten rounds, but It ended
in the third round up*.a orders from the po
lice, after McFarland had bee.n put down
three times. Up to the moment that Reea
connected with McFarland's jaw with a slag
ccring right hook the fight was very even,
■with both boya goint? at v fast clip and show
ing good class. This punch to the Jaw made
2VJcFar!aJil groggy, and a moment later, after
11 fierce mlxup, rura whipped a hard right
under the heart und McFarland went d/jwn
find fell 11s he tried to arise. He was up in
a moment, however, and went Into Another
liard wallop to the riba that Jtgttin put him
down. When he arose this tinie he was so '
irrOKfry thai he could nut adequately defend :
himself, and was again put down with a
body blow. Then the police, through Danny

the stiff, pace he set. It was lie vt tho fas-test
and most exciting minor event battles itaged.
at Naud Junction It) many a day and, while
Rivers won In every round, Cappelle put up
a good fight, but Rivers was entirely too
Bpeedy for him, outboxing and GUtaluggtng

boys of better class than Cappcll and prob

Usual Downtown Parade, Beginning at
1 o'Clock, Precedes Initial
Contest for League
n\" Mt n.vvmsoN
League baseball comes Into its. own again
today, when the 1910 Coast league pennant
race starts In Los Angeles, Ban Francisco
and Sacramento. The local end of the Heaeon
will begin with the opening game of the six
game series between the Angela and the Vil
lagers. This gam» will be a tiger fight all
the way, as the Intense rivalry between the
two tcani« and their club officials has reached
a state where It Is almost a personal affair,
and the winner today can be heard crowing
until lorn? iift*-r the chickens leave- their roosts
next morning, while the losers will feel about
as badly as Jack a da Kip after he loses a
p-ball game.
The formal ceremonies of opening the. season
will not vary much from those of other sea
sons, beginning with the usual downtown
parade at 1 o'clock, starting from In front of
the city hall. At the park, after the parade,
the ceremonies will be simple, as there will
be no pennant to unfurl th;- year, owing to
the fact that the Cripples of 1909 were unable
to hold onio tho prized trophy. Mayor Alex
ander and the city official escorted by a
platoon of police, will participate In tin
parade, and bis honor will toss the first ball
over the plate Aside from this, and the
musical program thai will be rendered by the
attending bands, there will be no ceremonies
at the park.
Both captains were very confident last night
of winning the opening game, although Ho
Kan's plans were badly disarranged yesterday
by an Injury sustained by Schafer, one of his
star twlrlcrs. who was selected to take the
firing line for the Villagers today. While
playing second ba.*e yesterday morning In lie
final workout. Schafer misjudged a thrown
bail and the sphere severely Injured hla lit:!
--finger bj the right hand This will put him
out of the game for nearly a week, but will
not cause Hogan to lose hli services for a
longer period, ax '!■' bones were broken.
The lineup as announced by both captains
yesterday will be as follows:
Dairy cf Carlisle
Bernard rf Coy
Murphy If Martlnke
Dillon "' Fisher
Howard Sb R. llrushear
.1. Smith 3b Hurrcll
I.ielmaß w Lindsay

Xagle 1' .Hltt, Stovall
Judge Nagle, by reason of his seniority as
a member of the Angel twirling staff and his
great form shown In the spring training se
ries with the White Sox, draws the honor
that goes with the Job of pitching the open
ing game, and Roy Hitt probably will be sent
In to oppose him. With Bchafer out of It,
Hltt figures as tlie strongest twlrler on the
Vernon staff, and the veteran, If he should
be back In bin old-time form, would have all
of them skinned to death. He Is showing in
such good form now that he may be depended
upon to do valiant service while on the mound
and make a lively game of It, anyway. Um

will call the game promptly at ;:3u o'clock.

CHICAGO, March 29.—The arena at
Emeryville, where the Jeffries-Johnson
tight is to take place on July 4, will be
"dry" on that day, according to James
Gleason, one of the promoters, who Is
in Chicago.
"Even if 1 were offered J3OOO in cash
for the bar privilege at the arena, I
would not consider the proposition,
said Gleason.
"I am afraid that if intoxicants were
sold at the ringside, a race riot might
be started by the followers of Jeffries

thirsty during the battle, for there will
be no drinks served."
Final arrangements for handling
tickets for the fight in Chicago and

Decision Holds Second Clause of Act
Repeals the First and Releases
Bookmaker Whose Case
Was a Test
[Associated Pre.«sl
SAX FRANCISCO, March M -A decision
written by Justice Luelen Shaw of the su
preme court and handed down today declares
that the second clause of the Otis-Walker
anti-betting law Is "Irreconcilably inconsist
ent with the preceding clause, and as such
operates as a repeal of the first clause."
The decision ordered the. raelaaa on a writ
of habeas corpus of W. W. Roberts, who was
arrested recently at Emeryville for acting aa
a stakeholder for a bet on a horse race.
Referring to the flrist clause, th» decision
■ays: "As plainly as words can declare It for
bids every person from receiving money bet
or wagered by or for any other person upon
the result of a horsa race or upon any con
tingent or unknown event. It may require
some stretch of credulity to believe that th«
legislature could have enacted a penal law
making un act which may be so trivial a
felony, but when a reading of thai act dis
closes that It has been enacted there can be
no misunderstanding of its meaning or ef- |
feet, if it stands alone and without qualifi- i
Tha decision then recites that both ele

Roberts did not own, lease or operate a place
for accepting such wafers as he was accused
of taking, as provided for by the second
clause of the Walker-Otis act he could not be
guilty of the offense charged. The statement
that the second clause is irreconcilably In
consistent with the Brat was given us the
j point of the decision. Shaw's interpretation
of the law was concurred in by Justices An
gellotti and lloes.
In a concurring decision written by Justice
F. W. Henanaw and concurred In by Juatlca i
I .origan the tame conclusion is reached, but ;
based on the decisions of the New York I
courts sustaining oral betting in that state.
Henshaw summed up his opinion as follows: .
"As the law does not denounce the laying j
of a wager, It would be preposterous to say j
It denounced as criminal one who became a i
depositary of such wagers."
The release of Roberts and the return of his
bonds were ordered by the court.

[Associated IT
CISCO, March 29.—After buttling nine
teen Victou* and bloody rounds, and ap
parently enjoyinj? a slight lend over h's
opponent, Jack Burns of Salinas, cai.,
tonight lost tiie fight in the twentieth
and linal round of his batle with Jim
Barry at Dreamland rink. Burnt took

Mas lived from a knnrkmit by the lull.
For ii shorl-ender Burns, m.nlr .( r.
markable showing, and m> to the nine
iDili it looked as if he mißiit earn
the decision. Aa early m the Mcond
round Hums brought blood Streaming
from the Chlcagoan's lefl eye, a ter
rific right-hand punch opening the rush
an Inch wide. The blood from tins out
flowed ceaselessly during the entire
combati Burns freequently making it a
target tor left and right punches.
Burns also devotefl much of his at
tacka t« Barry's kidneys, landing often
with solid right clouts. The tide of
battle ebbed and flowed without deci
sive advantage for either man until the
nineteenth. Angered by the constant
right-hand smashes that Bums landed
on his Jaw and eye in the eighteenth,
| Barry opened up the following round
with a do-or-die expression, Ke caught
the lanky Salmis man napping and
I landed several full-arm right and Jeft

started his opponent's downfall with a

round and fight terminated, tiius de
priving Barry of a clean knockout.
Referee Jack Welsh promptly
awarded the decision to Barry.
Both men's faces presented a badly
