Fans May Have Chance to Witness Good Bout on Holiday
Local Magnate Figures on Either Antone La Grave or Winner
of Frayne-Hogan as Fit Opponent for Hard Luck Bohe
mian-Baron Long Coming on Visit and May Land Match
for Montana Dan Sullivan—Powell in Great Demand
Around New York and Plans to Fight There Until
After First of Year-Freddie Welsh Cleaning Up
Easy Money in Weekly Mills in England
Local fight fans will get a holiday attraction—perhaps. Uncle
Tom McCarey is burning tlie wires between here and San Francisco
in an endeavor to land one of three boys, with George Memsic as
the other half of the match. Antone La Grave, One-Round Hogan
and Johnny Frayne arc the northerners McCarey is trying to swing,
and any one of them will do.
The Los Angeles magnate thinks well of Memsic as a drawing
card, and with a worthy opponent George should be able to demon
strate whether he is as good as his friends think. The Bohemian is
really a hard-luck kid and lias never been able to show just what he
can do. With a match in sight he has already started in light train
ing and can get in shape for a gruelling mill on two weeks' notice.
Frayne and Hogan meet this week in San Francisco, and Mc-
Carey is hoping for the winner. Should Hogan prove victorious he
will be in great demand all over the country, for he is looked upon
as one of the best boys the northern lightweight inspectors have seen
in years. This is his first attempt to travel a route, and it remains
to be seen if he can go the pace with a hustling miller like Frayne.
Even should he fail to gqt one of the San Francisco trio Mc-
Carey can fall back on others for a holiday card. Jack Kelly, the
former star jockey, is here representing Tony Ross and Patsy Bran
nigan, and figures either of them could come on from the east should
they be placed by the local magnate. Jimmy Dime is managing the
boys and has written Kelly from Pittsburg to do what he can. Tom
McMahon, another of the Dime string, is clamoring for a chance to
show his class in the middleweight ranks, and if Brannigan or Ross
g-cts on he will come along in hopes of finding a job.
Baron Long, whose efforts to get n
match for Dan Sullivan received so
much attention a few days ago, will be
in town this week on a visit and has
written that he hopes to swing a bout
for the Montana middleweight. Those
•who have seen Sullivan's recent per
formances are enthusiastic regarding
his capabilities, and In all probability
McCarey will make another stab at
giving him a fight.
An effort to get Long to bet on Sul
livan's chances against Tony Ross
has been turned down by the big boy.
The Italian is a full-fledged heavy
weight and Long fails to see where
Sullivan can go into the ring with
more than 160 pounds on his frame.
Frank Mantell has been doing well
in the east and he may be brought
here to tackle the Montana mauler.
Lew Powell is finding things rather
soft around New York, and has worked
up quite a reputation because of his
ring performances. Two bouts with
Young Otto sent the Frisco lad away
to a good start, and he is in big de
mand. . .The Yid's knockout wnllop

Hen is accused of obtaining ducks by
false pretenses, and dire things are in
store for him if any one of the quartet
lands liis prey.
This is the way they tell it:
Hen, accompanied by Jeff, Hill and
Oldlield, returned a week ago from sev
eral days' hunting near Jlakersfield.
Several"hundred ducks and Reese were
killed, and everything waa shipped to
Jeff's place for cold storage.
As soon as he hit the home village
Hen grabbed his share of the birds ami
beat it for hcme. To everyone lie met
the baseball magnate extended an in
vitation to go to Jeffs anil grab a
couple of ducks or geese. With Kipper
Jiolding the keys to the ice box many
invasions were made, and Jack began
to wonder how Hen had so many birds
lor his share.
Finally the truth leaked out—and
With an'awful roar. Jeff and Oldfleld,
■wishing to present a friend with some
food, journeyed down to the. ice box
and found it empty, so fur as birds
were concerned. Kip was Interviewed
and Berry waa found guilty. Now the
searching parties are after him, and
tiomething 1 is bound to pop.

Local Lightweight May Be Given
Opportunity to Prove His Worth
Quartet of Great Racers Enjoying
Well Earned Rest After Rec
ord Breaking Trip
MINNEAPOLIS. Dec. 11.—After the
most remarkable racing- and exhibi
tion season ever made in any stable
of horses, M. W. Savage's champions
have returned home for the winter.
They are now enjoying a Well earned
and needed rest on the International
farm at Savage and will not leave it
again until next summer.
The racing season of 1910 was re
markable in many ways. In no way,
however, was it so remnrkable as in
the alteration of world's records. The
American and National association
statisticians are authority for the
statement that never since harness
horse records were first compiled have
there been so many changes in one
season. Several of these have been
made necessary by the performances
of one or two great trotters, but the
big- majority of them are due to the
efforts of the pacers. The only pacers
that have captured world's records
this year are those belonging to Sav
age's championship combination.
The tour of the horses was remark
able in more ways than one. All long
distance traveling records for harness
horses were broken. During the sea
son, which began last July, these
horses traveled practically 20,000 miles.
Their journey extended from Canada
to Mexico and from Pennsylvania to
Arizona. They showed in sixteen
states and in eighteen different towns.
Notwithstanding some very bad luck
in the matter of weather the combi
nation gave exhibitions before record
breaking- crowds at a large majority
of the country state fairs and returned
to Minneapolis with profit as well as
glory for their season's spoils. Inci
dentally Minneapolis and Minnesota,
as the home of these famous horses,
were advertised in every state in the
Union, and it is safe to say that more
people over the country know of the
North Star state as the home of Dan
Patch, Minor Heir and company than
for any other one reason.
The artistic success of the tour Is
proved by the enthusiasm of fair
managers oil over the Vntted States.
Already Savage is in receipt of a
large number of requests for oxhi-
Mtion dntes next year. The plans for
1911 have not as yet beeen taken up
and will not lie for some time. Every
effort will be made to give the great
pacers the most careful wintering, and
on results of this largely depend their
chances for the breaking of more rec
ords next season.
It is in the matter of breaking rec
ords, however, that the Savage stable
made an unprecedented campaign.
Never did Dan Patch in bis palmiest
days shatter so many records or bring
home so many honors from one cam
paign as (li.l Minor Heir this year.
Minor Heir was closely followed by
Lady Maud <'. while Hedgewood Boy
and George Qano performed remark
able feats and Dan Patch drew the
crowds, held receptions and acted as
impresario for the younger horses.
Of course there never has been a
combination like the one, that hails
from Minneapolis. Thin is admittetd
by horsemen everywhere. Notwith
standing the extraordinary class of
the quartet that were racing, their
performances during the season just
closed were a surprise to the experts
and form one of the most remarkable
chapters in American turf history.
Altogether the combination lowered
,i state record nineteen times. They
lowered the world's race record six
times and lowered the record of every
track over which they started. Minor
Heir holds two and Lady Maud C three
new world's race records, and Minor
Heir during the season paced four
miles In a raco faster than any other
harness horse ever went.
The Ollnda first team yesterday
afternoon trimmed the Hughes club
by ;i score of B to 3. Cripps of the
Oil Writers twirled In big league
stylo, striking: out ten of his oppo
nents. Next Sunday the Oil Welters
will travel to Olivo for a diamond bat
tle. Tin' List time these two clubs
clashed It was a toss-up us to who
would win, the Ollnda team winning
out In the seventh Inning.
African Traveler Brings Back
Tale of Extraordinary Ath
letic Feats of Natives
NEW YORK, Dec. 11.—Reports that
would be set down at once as incredible
if not actually fictitious were they not
backed by such excellent authority,
come from the heart of eastern equa
torial Africa. They record athletic
leats on the part o£ the natives which
make reading alongside ot which any
thing in Col. Roosevelt's accounts of
his African adventures must assured
ly appear very tame. Incidentally they
will cause the much vaunted prowess
of athletes ancient and modern, wheth
er Hellenic, Celt, Teuton or Yank, to
sink into comparative insignificance.
It is the tribe of the Watussi, dwell
ing within the conrines of Kuanda, who
appear to be destined to go down into
history as the world's record-breakers
of all time. The seemingly impossible
height of S feet 2% inches stands to the
credit of one dark-skinned athlete in
the high Jump.
To the Duke Adolphus Frederick of
Mecklenburg, one of a small group of
princely explorers, the civilized world
is indebted for the information con
cerning a race possessed of such su
perhuman and undreamed of powers.
Africa is forever beating records,
whether in the size of its diamonds
(not baseball) or its cricket scores.
The latest revelation of the mysteries
of the dark continent is of a kind to
stagger humanity. In the recently
published account of his travels In
German East Africa the Duke Adolph
us Frederick of Mecklenburg tells of a
tribe o£ athletic blacks who in their
daily exercises make the deeds of our
Olympian heroes ridiculous. If there
was nne performance on the list of au
thenticated feats which seemed insur
paaaable it was the high jump of M.
P. Sweeney of New York, carefully
measured at 6 feet 5% inches. Duke
Adolphus Frederick has assisted at the
sports of the Watussi and has seen
them overlapping this height by a
couple of feet, more or less. His vol
ume -shows the photograph of one
Watussi clearing by many inches a
tightly stretched cord, beneath which
a couple of stalwart white travelers
Btand with upturned gaze, "like some
watcher of the starry skies when a
new planet swims into his ken." The
jump was measured at 24 motors, no
accounts being taken of beggarly
Inches, to say nothing of eighths.
It i.s true that the African jumpers
"take-off" from a little round ant hill
of a foot or so in li<-i«lit, but what of
that? Even tho committee 'if the
Amateur Athletic association, one
would think, could hardly be so mean
as to quibble at such an informality
when there i.s another foot to spare In
a claim for the best on record.
\nd what after all are our modern
champions? Between the Homeric
heroes who tossed landmarks and mill-
Btom ai each other's heads, the lone
Jumpor Phayllua, who cleared BO feel
(In round iigures), the weight-lifter
Jiilo and the modern black barbarian
of tin- iieart of Africa, whose high
jumps are reckoned In meters, how
futile must .seem our Vast stadiums
and puny antics! Let us try to im
agine the effect of a wireless tele
gram arriving iit Stockholm in 1912 to
Inform an enthusiastic; Olympic crowd
that the (white) people jump record
has Just been equaled at the Pan-
American games by a negro without
a pole.
Further particulars are to be had
from tlio duke's book on his travels.
It transpires that the performance oC
eurrel lit the course Of a sporting pro
gram which formed part of the festivi
ties arranged in honor of the exploring
party. This part of the hook reads
like a fairy tale:
"A line which could bo raised or
lowered at will was stretched between
two slender trees standing on an In
cline. Th« athletes hud to run up to
this and .lump from a small termite
heap a foot in height. Despite these
unfavorable conditions exhibitions
were given which would place all Eu
ropean efforts Jn the shado. Tho best
Jumpers, slender, but splendid figures,
with an almost Indian profile, attained
the Incredible height of. 1.80 meters (8
feet -'-i Inches), and young boys made
the relatively no lesa wonderful per
formanc* of 1.50 (4 feet 11 inches) to
Our old friend Clifford C. Cravath of Santa Ana is the real leader of the
club men in American association circles, according to the batting averages
for the recent season just forwarded by President T. M. Chlvington. Two
men were ahead of Cravath in the standings, but as neither played in many
games the palm must be given to th* former Angel for h»s .326 percentage.

The shooting average at BO meters (161

too, were organized, but owing to a
lurk of the necessary measuring in
struments I am unfortunately not in a
position to give the times. I have no
doubt, however, that in this depart

at least equaled."

Becomes Loquacious on Subject
of Proposed Bout and Praises
English Pug
CHICAGO, Dec. 11.—Ad Wolgast is
talking favorably about the proposed
,Moran-Wolgast bout. He believes that
Moran would be a fine drawing card
since the Englishman defeated Nelson,
and Wolgast also says, that the inter
national asrect of the match would
help the gate receipts.
Apparently the lightweight champion
has been doing Borne thinking on his
farm. He is quoted with some Interest
ing opinions. In the first place Wol
gast says that he would never meat
Moran in England because the Ixmdon
fight fans would have no use for hts
style of work. "They are good fel
lows," says the champion, "but they
have different ideas about the game
over there, and my methods would not
be liked."
In speaking of Moran himself, Wol
gast says: "He is the roughest and
toughest clover fighter I have ever
seeri. His reputation as a rough man
In the ring is growing every day.
Moran boxes much like Abe Attell,
standing straight much of the time.
As an Inflshter he. is clever, but I think
that I have considerably the better
of him In that department. His clean
job at taking Nelson under his wing
has mado Moran popular, and we
should draw a much better gate than
another bout between Nelson and my
Wolgnst has been taking good care
of himself on his Cadillac farm, spend
ing considerable time on horseback
and in his training quarters. Wolgast
is still nursing the arm which he in
jured in Milwaukee. "In snme re
spects," says the champion, "the in
jury did me much good. I havo been
forced to use the other arm almost
exclusively in training, and its hit
ting power has increased Immensely. '
Wolgast Is closing up his business
affairs in Cadillac as fast as possible
and is placing his farm and sheep
ranch in the hands of his parents and
other reliable persons. By the latter
part of December he desires that every
thing be closed, as far as his personal
attention is concerned, for a year at
By January 1 he wants to bo ready
to start in vaudeville again and will
stick to that for a couple of months at
