THE HERALD'S SPORTING NEWS BARRY WANTS TO USE LANGFORD AND BURNS AS STEPPING STONES Declares That Prospect That He Will Be Substituted in September Battle with Canadian Lends Additional Incentive to His Best Efforts Against Boston Terror in Their 25- Round Scrap Next Thursday Afternoon at Vernon. Shows How He Figures to Win After Having Been Beaten by Sam in Other Bouts JAY DAVIDSON SAM LANGFORD has worked so hard during tho training period in which he has been preparing- for his fight next Thursday afternoon with Jim Harry that his manager, .Too Woo rlman, forced him to take a day oft' yesterday for the purpose of relaxation and rest. Jim Barry kept pepsins away in Ills Venice training quarters, and probably did the hardest day's ■work since he lias hern training for th is fight. Both will be going full tilt today and tomorrow, nml then hnth wi 11 sit around nnd rest up for the twen ty-five round argument at Vernon th c following day. Biirry was told that T,nngford was taking a day off, and he said that after the scrap Thursday afternoon Sam will be wishing he had stayed on the Job, instead of taking vacations. "They tell me that L.angford Is unbeat nhlo, and that I am going into the ring to take a beating Just to get the short end of the fighters' share," said James. "Now, I cannot figure that any fighter, none barred, Is so awful good that I would have no chance with liim. I know I have not made such a good record with I^angford that I Should be made favorite over him, but who else has been beating me? "Just look over the T,angford-Bar ry dope and see how many timea w« have fought ten or twelve-round fights. All the fights In which we have met have been routed over short distances, which made conditions more favorable to Langford than to myse If. Langford, in fact, is a limited round fighter. After he goes ten rounds he has had n plenty, and Is down on a. par with the average fighter In his division. He fights at such a fast pace that the .short limit affairs are ma do to order for him, and a fighter who likes a distance is at a disadvantage before he goes into the ring. T hnve figured all these things out for myself and believe that I am his master at twenty-five rounds, and that T will be able to prove it Thursday afternoon. "Many fans think I nm stalling In my talk along these lines, but I will surprise thorn. T have bright, weight nnd reach on him and I know that I can hit just as hard as hp can. All that I must have, then, Is downright courage, to go In nnd fight the battle I have mapped out, and after the scrap nobody will accuse me of not having that necessary courage. Txing fights are to my liking, while Langford wants the short bouts. All right. For the first time In nil nur fights I have him just where I want him, nnd I •will whip him sure, If T do net knock him out before the twenty-fifth round. "I expect him to outpoint mo in the first eight or ton rounds because of Ills speed nnd cleverness, but T nm sure I can get through those early rounds In food lhape. After thn tenth I will go nfter him fearlessly, because T know he will be tired and I will be fresh and strong. When I start after Jilm T shall do what T always have had to do In our short fights—stand ton -10-toe with him nnd swap wallops, knowing that I then run outslug him, and 3 shall hope to ho able to land the knockout blow before the fifteenth round. •1 have put him down several times, and now that we are going the long ro'fto, I will make my wallops count for something. "Knowing that I am the better fighter over a distance, I have gone Into training fiis time with tho best heart I ever had In me before my fight. I ■will go into tho ring ready to fight for my life, and will be n far different Jim Barry to any that eve.r fought before. I will be, in condition to go the long route to ■ decision, if necessary, and In the last half of the fight, when I fim going nfter him with the Intention of knocking him out, my condition nnd my stamina will be superior to hi I and we will bo fighting on more, oven grounds. If J can whip him I can get that fight with Tommy Burns, and these two fights will be my stepping p tones to better engagements, for I Intend t" become champion of the world before I quit the ring, and realize 1 must force recognition from the fans and thp promoters before I can get ■ whack at those In the near-championship division." Both fl;.-hters have worked themselves Into good condition, nnd show by their appearance whllo working In their training quarters that little more could bo desired In this line. Nolther will be able to complain of lack of condition. However, they will work this afternoon and tomorrow, and then cut it out, resting the remaining twenty-four hours preceding the fight. Harry figures that he will weigh about 190 to 19.". pounds, whllo Langford will go into the ring nt nbout 165 pounds. Tender these conditions It looks like a real light, and should be more exciting than the Langford-Flynn fight, which was a hummer all the way. Th« advance sale of tickets Indicates that another packed house will witness the mill. Jimmy Austin returned yesterday from Frisco, where he was declared tho loser to Bddle Campi In their four-round fight a few nights ago. He claims that he had a Rood lead In the first two rounds and no worse than an even break in the last two, ho that he should have hf»en given the decision. As the boys were fighting on a winner-take-nll basis, Jimmy did not pick up anything by this scrap. Austin brings back clippings from Portland papers to prove that he earned the decision over Jimmy Carroll, who has been matched with Johnny Coulon for next month. Two of th c papers, in giving the decision, declare that ' arroll never laid a hard glove on Jimmy during the fight, ajid say that Austin won by such a wide margin that there was left no room for argument. The Bast Side Athletic club will again become the Mecca of the fans, after M luiis' letup, as IMnny Webster has established his training quarters' there «nrl will do hI! his training for the fight with Conley in the club gymnasium. The East Side club Is one of the best equipped training camps In the wert! being equipped with a model gymnasium In every detail, and la go located that road work over the best roads In the county can be started and fin ished right there. Al Rosen also U working there for his scrap Thursday dfternnnn with Morrie Bloom. BURNS SHOWS HE HAS GONE BACK Has His Troubles Winning Unpop ular Decision Over Poor ROId Bill Lang .'

ELECTRIC WIRES THREATEN JEFF Tree That He Cuts Down Falls Through String of Power Lines Near Him CLOSE CALL SCARES HELPERS Big Fellow Again Postpones Box ing and Assigns No Reason for Doing So [Associated Proas] ' BEN LOMOND. April 11.— old question of whether hard luck Is camp ing on the trail of James J. Jeffries, determined to put the champion out for the count before he gets a chance to show what he ; can do against Jack Johnson on the Fourth of July, came to the • front again ; today at j Jeffries' training camp, when the big. fighter had a close call to death or injury through a live wire. Jeffries went out to chop down a red wood, accompanied by Farmer Burns and Jack "Wooley, an Oakland sports man. When the tree fell it crashed through a string of power wires and two ends of a telephone line dropped close to the Jeffries party, hitting with in a few feet of where the champion stood. All near 1 the champion were frightened thoroughly, but Jeffries did not allow any emotion to escape him. He went right to work again cutting logs and chopping wood. Kaln.made outdoor work impossible in the morning. The sparring sessions were postponed again, without any ap parent reason other than that Jeff did not feel in the mood to box. In place of this, Jeff went through the full list of the gymnasium apparatus, working himself into a fine glow. The monotony of the camp was broken during the afternoon by a wrestling match between Farmer Burns and Baron Carl Henkel, an of ficer of the German army, who was a visitor at the camp. The Baron thought he could win from Burns easily, and several wagers were made on the out come of the match. Burns, however, kept up his reputation by scoring a fall in 2:35, ■ . . Sam Berger, Jeff's manager, arrived in camp today, after having completed arrangements for the outfitting of the gymnasium. . Berger would make no announcement aa to the first boxing, a I performance which is looked forward j to anxiously, as giving the only true j light on Jeffries' condition for a ring i battle. Carpenters will begin work in the i morning, lifting the roof of the gym- | nasium to permit light and good air to fill the place. Mrs. Jeffries was taken slightly ill today and will leave for Oakland to morrow. tßm - - -■ JOHNSON BEGINS HIS WORKOUTS ONCE MORE Spasmodic Training by Galveston Dinge Continues with Usual Interruptions CHICAGO, April 11.—Jack Johnson started training in earnest today for his coming battle with James J.

Savage Arranging National Tour with His Celebrated Quintet in Summer DAN PATCH HEADS THE LIST Hedgewood Boy, Lady Maud C and Two Others to Be Shown on Coast (Special to Th« Herald.) MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., April 11.— Having: secured five of the fastest pacen in the world, M. \V. Savage Is now preparing for a campaign that bids fair to excel anything ever known in the exhibition line.

As yet Savage has closed no contracts, but within a short time will make a route that will Include a large percentge of the big state fairs and will probably extend from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and from ocean to ocean. Since Hedgewood Boy and Lady Maud C, the world's champion team, WU received at the International farm a week ago, the Minnesota horseman ] has been more certain of the attrac tions lie would have to offer, and Is making definite plans for the cam paign. Ui-prespntatives of some of the big gest harness and sulky manufacturers visited the Savage farm the first of last work, and there was much busi ness In the way of measuring horses and discussing models, plans and specifications. As a result, within a few weeks there will be delivered to Savage two sets of specially made double harness, three sets of single harness, two racing wagons for the teams, four new specially mado sulkies, a large amount of special boots and equipment and an exhibition outfit that is expected to surpass ,-niything ever seen on a race track for the cham pion Dan Patch, whose role will be that of interlocutor during the com ing season. Superintendent Hersey was given in structions to go the limit in the matter of equipment, and when he had fln- I ished with the order blanks a few days ! ago he remarked with a smile, "I guess j we will make people sit up and take | notice this year, for I don't believe 1 | have overlooked a bet." Savage Is enthusiastic over the out- I look for the coming season, and Is anticipating much enjoy niont from watching his famous horses struggle for supremacy and for world's cham pionships in straight races, team races and races against the watch. Hedgewood Hoy and Lady Maud C. have shown no ill effects from their Journey by freight from Taylorvllle, 111.

Williams, manager of tho Be kins Motor Car company, has been do ing some wonderful time-making stunts up in tho hilly country of tho oil fields around Bakersfleld In his big seven passenger American-Simplex oar, and on Sunday drove from BaKcrsfiold to Maricopa in one hour and twenty-five minutes, establishing a new record for the distance of forty-three mlleß across the alkali desert. In the car that made this phenomenal run were Dr. R. H. Stevens of Lot Angeles, Tom Kingston of Bakersileld, F. W. Train, editor of Maricopa Oil News, W. S. Bogg and James Bloom of Bakersfleld, the aggre gate weight of the load being 1235 pounds, exclusive of a number of bun dles of a miscellaneous character, of whicji no account vu made. This 1h an extraordinary record, In view of the fact that the roadway for the twenty miles across the alkali des ert is about as crooked and chucky an nny road could possibly be and still be called a road. Xix other machines, one of which was a big White steamer, that left from tho same starting point—the Southern ho tel —all the way from a half to three quarters of an hour In advance, were passed in crossing the desert-. The enr in which thll record run was made is the Amerlcan-Simplex's 1910 model.

Bo«d«l hav ing a tremendous power, it ia ipcedy, neat appearing and an eaßy> rider. The car is expressly built for a rough, hilly country, and Is therefore especially adapted to an oil field section.

His time for the half-century Is 40 minutes and 13 seconds, or 4 minutes and 20 seconds lower than the former record. His average mile was 48 sec onds. ' Tho fastest mile waa made in 44 2-5 seconds. This record Is official and is exj" to stand for snmo time. The timers were Klby, Latham and Johnson of the Los Angeles Motorcycle club.
