PAL MOORE RUNS OUT OF MATCH
WITH CONLEY FOR CHAMPIONSHIP
Freakish Fate Selects May 14 as Bright and Shining Mark and
Causes Postponement of Three Important Battles Scheduled
for That Day in This State-Joe Willis Hurt in Auto Ride,
and Match with Burns Set Over One Week. Causing De
lay in Burns-Ferguson Bout at Vernon - Eastern
Bantam Wants to Stay East to Meet Driscoll
EVERYTHING went wrong yesterday with the plans of California fight
promoters, nn<l it Beemed thai a freakish fate has settled upon Satur
day. May 14, as tl>" one day In the year when to send all tho pro
motors into conniption [its. as this da te was selected for three important
battles in the slate, ami every one of them has been postponed for some
reason or other. Manager McCarey was most affected, as well as being first
to receive a visitation from this thing called fate. His card for Vernon
j>ert Brftiirdny was n rlassy one. wit li T,e\v Powell nnd GeorEre Memslc in
the points, but an injury sustained by Memsio caused this bout to be post
poned for one week. Jack Burns, who was scheduled to tackle Sandy Fer
guson over the twenty-five-roun.l rout.> May :'l at Vernon and to take on Joe
Willfs at roalinga next Saturday, had to ask for a postponement of both
scraps because Willis had to take an a uto ride nnd get hurt. Then, to cap
the climax, the district attorney of San Mateo county issued a statement
last night to the effect that he will not permit the Bill Papke-Joe Thomas
scrap, scheduled for Saturday, to be held at Colrna, and It is to be post
poned for a week and transferred to San Francisco. Truly, trouble always
comes in a bunch.
Manager McCarey was affected by the postponement of the Memsic-
Powoii scrap and also by the postponement of the Burns-Willis affair, as
the latter postponement means that the Kurns-Ferguson scrap cannot be held
until June 4 or later. But, to add to his misery, he received a telegram last
night from Tal Moore asking that he be given further time in which to re
port at Los Angeles for the 25-round scrap with Franfcie Conley at Vernon
for the bantam title, intimating that he very much desires to run out of
the match. McCarey refused to permit Moore to delay his arrival, and in
asmuch as Moore gave as his excuse that he wanted to fight Jem Driscoll in
New York before coming west, which looks like an invitation to McCarey to
take a beaten fighter for a championship battle, McCarey has ceased to
consider Moore any further and is looking around for another opponent for
Conley, who (it-sires to stay here and fight lor the local promoter.
It is probable that if Danny Webster wants to try his luck again with
Conley for the championship and the diamond bolt hung up by McCarey he
will be substituted for Moore at the 25-round route and that the battle will
be staged at Vernon about June 4 or June 11. While both these boys have
fought twice, Conley winning a ten-round newspaper decision each time,
Webster is not fully convinced that Conley is his fistic master yet and may
be induced to try it over once more. Somebody will be found, anyway, to
take the place of Moore and Conley will be given an early date at Vernon.
George Memsic will resume training this afternoon at Doyle's club at
Vernon and expresses the opinion that hi 1 will bewible, with the additional
ten days given him, to get into his best fighting condition. The injury to
his leg is improving so fast that he w ill be able to start work this after-
noon without taking any chances of further injury, according to the doctor
in attendance, and as George had worked himself into good condition before
sustaining the injury, he will be able to fit himself for his best efforts if
he can stand.up to the work aa he ex ytn. t.-* to be able to do.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 11, 1910.
HERALD SPORTING PAGE
Halley'l comet or some Other freak
ish thing put the kibosh onto the press
boys yesterday when they lined Up at
Chutes park for the annual baseball
same with the plugugly priie fighters,
The score stood 10 to .". in favor of
the fighters at the end of the eighth
inning, when everybody concerned, In
cluding the spectators, wire so tired
and thoroughly exhausted that the
was stopped by mutual consent.
This la the Mrsl defeat the press team
has sustained in eight years, and it
does not count, as the fighters slipped
in a professional battery on us and the
pro-twlrler was curving them over a la
Krapp or Cy Toung all the time. The
classy batters on the press te;un
lammed h.im good nnd hard at times,
but. were unfortunate In not being able
to get enough hits or runs to hold onto
the long end of the score. Then. Tom
McCarey, Ken Berry and Judge Parker
were of the opinion that it was a joke
game, and perpetrated several alleged
jokes in the form of decisions on balls
and strikes and base-running stunts.
Neither of these umps will be recom
mended to the major leagues for pro
iimliuii on iiir showing ttt<jy :r.;;;!c ycr,
unlay. The classy third baseman of
the i ress team left the grounds with a
broken thumb, a splintered forefinger
on the same hand and two other
strained fingers, so that the left hand
looked like a crazy quilt creation In
loops, curves and beautiful angles after
the game. Other players on the press
club lineup were equally maltreated, :
and running a typewriter last night
was so painful that further comment
on the doings during the game are re
garded herewith as wholly unnecessary. ;
A return engagement will be played
soon, when the professionals will be
barred and the glory and honor of the
press team prestige will be fully dem
onstrated.
Baseball fans are hereby notified
that the series between the Angels and
Beavers will start this afternoon at
2:30 o'clock at tho Chutes, and as it
is to be a hard fought series, if there
is anything in dope. Hen Berry wants
the fans to turn out nnd help root the
home team into the long end of every
day's score. The top of the heap is ]
so near, and yet so far, that if the
Angels win half a dozen games this
week they will be on top, or there
abouts, next Monday afternoon when
they hook up for the final game of,
tho series. Beginning today the fans
will have more than continuous base
ball for two weeks, as there will not
be an idle day until May 21, which
means fourteen straight games be
tween teams that are fighting it out
for the early season lead of- the league.
Paul Roman leaves today for San
Piego to go into trajnlng for a twenty- ;
round -scrap there May 27 with Sailor

FIFTH IN SHOOT
Local Military School Team
Makes Great Shoyving in
National Competition
ABRAHAMS TIED FOR FIRST
Surprising Record Made by Cadet
Causes Much Jubilation
at Academy
<
The National Rifle association of
America announces the results of the
second annual competition among the
preparatory, public and private schools
of the United States for the Astor cup
and rifle shooting team championship
for theoyear 1910.
This match, which is held under the
jurisdiction of the national association,
is shot by school teams on hoir.e ranges,
under" the supervision of judges ap
pointed by the national association. The
targets used in the match are forward
ed to the headquarters of the national
association, and the scores are deter
mined by a committee appointed for
that purpose.
The match wag open to teams of ten
pupils from any public or private school
not conferring a degree, each boy tiring
ten shots standing and ten shots prone
aj fifty feet on a target having a bulls
eye counting ten, one-half inch in di
% aihetcr, with nine graduated circles
counting from nine to one, using a 22
--caliber rifle with open military sights.
Forty-two teams entered the match,
but eight schools either did not com-
pete or failed to send in their scores.
In several cases schools entered two
teams.
These schools'cover ft territory em
braclng the entire United states,
stretching from New York, Baltimore,
Philadelphia ami Washington across
tile continent to LOS Angeles and Ban
Rafael, Cal., and (ram Portland, .Me.,
south to San Antonio, Tex.
For the second time the trophy went
to a public school of the city of New
York, thus demonstrating the fact that
'the rifle shooting now being canted on
in these schools, under the auspices of
iiio Public Schools Athletic league, is
developing some tine marksmen. The
scores of tho winning team compare fa
vorably with those of tin college and
Civilian club teams which shoot under
similar condition*.
It will be noted also that the second
team was from the public high schools
of New Ytnk city. The score* then
take ■ considerable drop until it would
appear that there was another class
competing. The third, fourth, fifth and
sixth team! were from military acade-
mies, whore title practice is carried on
at .1 part of the curriculum.
The De Witt Clinton high school of
New York, winner of the m;tteh, has an
age average o* 17 years and 4 months;
the score of IS2I showed an average of
lsi'.l of a possible UOO for each boy. By
military count the score would be 955,
or two points better than the winning
score of last year, made by the Morris
high school of New York, who were
second this year with a score of 1802.
A member of the De Witt Clinton team
also carried off the honors for the best
individual score—William Krefeld hav
ing made a score of 93 standing and 97
prone, or a total of 100. The best
standing score was 93, made by C.
Brown and \V. Krefeld of De Witt
Clinton high school and H. Llnfcui of
Morris high school. Five boys tied
with the top score of 98 for prone shoot

Ritie shooting among the schoolboys
of the country Is rapidly Increasing in
popularity. The president has declared
his belief that training the schoolboys
in marksmanship is v sound principle
for national defense, and the secretary
of war in his last report said:
"The encouragement of ritle practice
among our dtlsens and schoolboys is of
the greatest importance in this coun
try, where preparedness for war is
largely based on the employment of an
army of volunteers, and wisely framed
laws will give a healthy stimulus to
this'branoh of military preparation."
A bill is now pending in congress,
carrying an appropriation of $100,000
and a free issue of rilles and ammuni
tion, to carry on this movement on a
broad and national basis. The bill lias
been passed in the senate and is now
pending in the committee on millitary

JEFFRIES ROUGHS
IT IN TRAINING
Gives Choynski and Armstrong
Severe Maulings in After
noon Boxing Bouts
APPLAUDED BY MRS. JEFF
Shows All His Old Time Speed and
Punching Ability in Live
ly Sessions
[AsßOOJatcci Press]
BEN LOMOND, May 10.—With Mrs.
Jeffries applauding Jeffries roughed It
for six rounds witn Joe Choynski and
Bob Armstrong in his gymnasium
i.i.iiy with his pye still blackened
from the rap whien lie received Mon
day he seemed anxious to give a good
arc nunt of himself, and his two spar
ring partners seemed glad when the
bout was over. He 1 was faster than at
any tiui" since beginning training, and
after three miles of short sprints on
his road course announced that he haa
taken off about 2i pounds since be
ginning training, now tipping the
scales at 226. NothiiiK was done dur
ing tii early hours of the afternoon,
but shortly before evening the tiKhter
indulged in a little fast bus.'ball prac
tice. .
Jeffries' workout in the morn'ng was
decidedly reassuring after his 'umber
ing exhibition yesterday afternoon. He
romped through the two clou tins
matches as if he enjoyed it and In ono
of the- mlxupa playfully sei Armstrong
<mi iiis back as if tie were a small boy.
Today's experiment will be repeated
In the road workouts fm- the next threo
weeks, splitting up the distance into
100-yard .-print.-, Instead of the usual
ten-mile drill,
JOHNSON WEIGHS IN AT 220
POUNDS AFTER ROAD WORK
SAN FKANCISeo, M;, y 10.—n.-olar-
Ing that bis Flrai day on the r<>ii<i did
m>t stiffen up hla mum lea In the least,
Jack Johnaon was out on the road
again tins morning fo» another twelve
mile jaunt If anything 1, he t""k his
camp followers over the roada In
Qolden Qate park ;it ■ faster iiip than
on the previous day and he f( n ao good
on hla return that he loaned the med
icine bail around and played a little
ii.i ■ i>.iii before he took in* rubdown.
Johnson's trainers declare themselves
as highly pleased with the condition of
the fighter and say that the easy way
he has fallen into the preliminary
training vra»rk is the best proof of
Johnson's condition at ill.- outset.
The tm .-1 baaportant phase ol the day
at Johnson's camp waa the weighing
nf the colored fiKiit.r. Jack has not
been on the'scalea since be arrived in
California and there waa lorpriae on
his part, as wi'ii as his trainers, when
the beam tilted al 220 pounds,
"I must have been way off in my
cal' ulatlons," declared Johnson, who
hail previously estimated that he would
strip at IM. "Hut I Ktiess the two
days on tip' road have taken off some
Of the weight. 1 want to tell you now
that the weight is not bothering me.
All I want is to he right l"r this fight
and any extra weight that Jeffries
may have he is welcome to. Mi' will
n i that much of a handicap when
he lt|s into tln> :-ing."
Johnson was accompanied on thjs road
in the morning by five or tin- mm
in his camp, Including Big Hart, Tom
Little, George Cotton, Barney Purey
and Marty Cutler. The same course
was taken ns on the first day nnd as
an catiy start" was made, Johnson was
over with his rubbing down before 10
o'clock,
"I have been with Johnson a groat
deal," said sit; Hart, "and I never saw
him in better shape. He has i r,
taking good long runs, nnd hut Tor the
rest of us be would nave slaved out
lunger. People don't need to worry
about Johnson's condition."
Little spent the afternoon in San
FrancitCO, discussing with attorneys a.
suit that Bam Fitzpatriek has brought
against Johnson for past services, but
Johnson stuck c'.nse to bis quarters.
Doc Cornell, trainer for the Portland
baseball tram, arrived today from the
north and announced that he would
join Jeffries next Monday to act as
trainer for the California heavyweight.
PAPKE-THOMAS BOUT
MAY GO TO FRISCO
to Thu Herald.]
SAN FRANCISCO, May 10.— There Is
a strong possibility that the 25-round
flsht between Hilly Papko and Joe
Thomas, scheduled to take place next
Saturday afternoon at Coffroth's
Colma arena, will have to be trans
ferred to San Francisco and take place
the following week. In such an event
the date will be decided upon later by
the principals and the bout will be re
duced to a 20-round affair. District
Attorney Joseph Bullock of San Mateo
county is out with a statement that
his previous announcement that no
more fighting will be allowed in San
Mateo county "holds good for this
coming Saturday." Coffroth will hold
a conference with the district attorney
today to ascertain just what he pro
poses to do and in the event that the
district attorney stands to his guns
there will be no tight. Inasmuch as
Coffroth has a fight permit for San
Francisco which he has not used he
can make the transfer without loss.
