the floor senseless with a righthand uppercut
Fitzsimmons had not appeared in the
ring in Australia since he left here for tile
nited States many years ago and when

Wnen the twelfth and last round

Fitxsimmons took the count of nine and
rose groggy Lang was at him fiercely
as soon as he regained his feet battering
the tottering veteran about the ring He
forced Flu against the ropes and with a
hard right uppercut on the Jaw sent him

Boston Dec HAt the beginning of
the 1909 season Owner John I Taylor
u f the Boston American league team
mol < le a unique offer to hte players
B cause of a desire to stimulate bat
ting he promised to add 500 extra to
t players salary who hit 300 or bet
ter for the season Whether or not the
plan was > a goud one is a question but
behind the scheme is an interesting
The only two men who made John I
Taylor come across with the bonus
wre Third Baseman Harry Lord and I
outfielder Tris Speaker Lord managed
tj roll up a swat record of 311 for the
> iar while Speaker fell two points be
Jow J the high water mark of the bril
jmt third baseman Jake Stahl Harry
titssler and Catcher Bill Carrigan and
Infielder Gardner were the unlucky
members of the Red Sox
Bill Carrigan lost his 500 simply be
t ause he lacked one measly single Bill
v urlted in ninetyfour games was at
hut 280 times and made eightythree
hits for an average of 2X Had Bill
Lurded eightyfour hits for the season
ins record would have been an even 300
which would have made it necessary for
John I to come across
Jake Stahl played in twentyseven
games was at bat 127 times and
cracked out 128 hits which gave Jake
a record of 284 for the season just six
points shy of the mark Had Jake made
three more hits during the year his
slug total would have been just a trifle
over 300
Doc Qessler was hitting well over
300 something like 317 when Boston
sold him to Washington When the i
trade was made Gcsaler didnt know
whether it let him out of sharing In the
profits Since the close of the season
he has failed to get any check from
John I so Gesaler hag decided there
is nothing doing for him in the bonus
When the offer was made it was stip
ulated that a player must take part In
over twenty games to share in the
bonus money Infielder Gardner was
shy In two respects He worked in
nineteen games one shy of the required
number was at bat thirtyseven times
and made eleven hits for an average of
297 just one hit shy of getting into
the 300 class

Only One Like Him in Century and
Johnson Sure to Meet
New York Dec aTom Sharkejf says
its a hard matter to try to dope out a
fight seven months before the men climb
into the ring but looking over the situa
tion of the Battle of the Century he feele
confident that Jim Jeffries will collect the
large end of the purse when he meets
Jack Johnson on July 4
Now before 1 go any further he said
today I want to say that I am looking
at this great contest from the outside
It Is only natural that I should hope that
Jeffries wins the battle if only to have
the titie remain in the white mans class
Many may shriek that there should be no
color line In the fighting game but there
is and always will be as long as we are
on this earth This does not mean that
I am knocking Johnson If there was
ever a colored man that was really white
Johnson Is the man If he had been born
light Instead of blackwell there might
have been a different story I have met
both fighters time and time again and
want to go on record as saying that 1
claim that I consider the pair two clever
men in the ring and outside of the
squared circle they are men that are
worth knowing
There Is one wall that has never
stopped since Jim Jeffries signed up for
the battle The croakers have chirped
without drawing a long breath Jeffries
will have to get back his wind Thats
the best joke I ever heard since Joe Mil
ler stopped kidding the public One would
think Jim Jeffries was an ordinary mor
tal Let me tell you a thing or two Jim
Jeffries is a fighter that Is produced once
in a century He is composed of tough
fibers incased in a bulk that is almost
With all respects to Jeff he is like a
big black bear weighing a ton full of
ginger and aching for a fight And they
ask How about his wind That is the
best joke of the year If he has no trou
ble with his wind there will be no fight
Instead the coroner will have a job on
his hands trying to find out what killed
a tall wiry colored man As long as you
asked me I want to give the Inside
dope on this fight and you can bet the
family jewels that Tom Sharkey knows
what he is saying Let Jim Jeffries en
ter the ring onehalf fitremember half
fltas the day he met me at Coney Isl
and ten years ago and he will win in a
cantermm TO SPEND
Log Angeles Dec 26 Jimmy McAleer
the new manager of the Washington team I
of the American league accompanied by
his wife is on his way to this city from
the east via Seattle and Is expected to
arrive about January 1 He is coming on
a visit to his brothers Owen and Tom
McAleer and is to be the guest of
Brother Tom at 723 Kensington road
In February Jimmy is to start for Nor
folk Va where the Senators are to train
and he will probably take his California
players with him He was here seventeen
years ago and will be unprepared for the
many changes that have been made in the
city since then
McAleer is considered to have been the
greatest outfielder the game of baseball
has ever seen although he was only an
ordinary batter He played his greatest
ball with the Cleveland Spiders wheil
that team was in the old National league
He learned his lessons under Patsy Te
beau and was on the team with such
men as Ed McKean McGarr Young
Cuppy Zimmer and others
When the American league was formed
in 1900 McAleer was chosen manager of
the St Louis Browns and continued In
that position for eight years He has
signed a contract to manage the Wash
ington team of the same league the corn
ing season
Despite the move to the new quar
ters 117 Plerpont street across from
the National Guard armory the Man
nattan club expects the usual big crowd
at its boxing card tonight With a bat
tle royal to top off the fun and four
fast goes on the regular program the
card is a good one
Many of the boys have been boxing
with Pete Sullivan and his training
methods have started a lot of amateurs
down to hard work just for the fun of
the thing With three of the four bouts
in the bantam and featherweight class
the card has plenty of speed and the
boys are known to be both fast and
Joe Burns who is to referee the battle
royal says that he has five live oneb
who have got to show a fast clip in or
der to get a slice of the chicken
The fourround goes will be Ban
tams Hal Selby and Tommy Gethin
and Mickey Sullivan and Young Forbes

Erne welterweights Kid Williams and
Young Rickard

I have the fight on a platter and

ishing a close third by riding all around
all the contestants on the final stretch
Last years 100mile race was run In 9
minutes and 55 seconds but much bet
ter time should b made this year as
mOt of the riders are equipped with
faster and more powerful machines I
looks as though the race will be done in
80 minutes and De Rosier his

time to defeat him
Otto Floto writing In the Kansas City
Post says that Hylands fight against
Thompson was below p He says
Sometimes we fall to realise how much
importance a knockdown figures I the
mind of th referee when rendering his
decision Yet last night when Johnny
Thompson and Dick Hyland met at the
Hippodrome in their tenround Delsarte
movement i is very probable that Ref
eree Owens would have given Fighting
Dick as good as a draw but for the two
dives he took to the mat I
Outside of that round he held his own
with Thompson and when the end was
announced its a question whether or not
Thompson was as strong as his game lit
tle opponent from the Pacific coast The
pace at which they fought eU its own
tale and while its conceded that Johnny
l something out of the ordinary when it
comes to endurance yet he I only hu
man and must tire himself Especially
1 this true when h is pitted against an
opnet quite as tough a be 1 him
I 1 fartherest from my intention to
take any credit away from Thompson for
his win last night Nor did I ever wax
enthusiastic over Hylands fighting abil
ity But I will vouch for the fact that
Hyland fought worse last night than he
ever did in his life or modifying that I
never saw him fight s bad and I have
seen him in action on numerous occasions

That Abe Label the clever boxer who
appeared in amateur bouts here last
winter is still going some is seen from
the following report from L Angeles
Abe Labels defeat of Jimmy Fitten at
Hollister last Saturday night should
boost the Hebrew scrappers stock with
local promoters far above p I was
one of Labels best fights and the
fighting caliber of Fitten needs no in
troduction t the transbay fan L
bels knockout of the tough Oaklander
leaves no doubt of his cleancut victory
tory There can be no argument from
Oakland over the score
Fitten was knocked out in the seventh
round and for a time I was feared that
Label had seriously injured his
Lbl srIously Injurd oppo
nent The punch which ended the bat
tle was a short righthand cross which
landed flush on Flttens jaw Up to
this stage of the battle Label h out
boxed Fitten and would have won on
points When the crushing blow was
delivered Fitten was rendered uncon
scious for fully fifteen minutes and
pending his recovery the referee with
held his decision
Label Is now in line t meet any of
the 125 or 130pound brigade I One
Round Jack Hogan chooses to turn
professional Label will offer himself
a the stepping stone maybe T
Hebrew scrapper is also willing to bet
Hogan a snug sum on the side and let
the winner take all This def goes
for all others if Hogan Is bent upon
sticking boys to the ranks of the medal

Kidert o HM 1910 Racing
Will Suffer
New York Dec 28Jockeys for racing
will be a question of importance next
season as it was last there being put
very few who can b termed anywhere
reai firstclass Unless the winter insti
tutions turn out some new material ther >
will b a scarcity of good rider
At present there are about four wor
thy of mention Powers But well Dugan
and Archibald Considering that at least
12 firstclass riders are needed in the east
to make good and consistent racing i
number is too limited
There are about three others who can
be called acceptable Burns Musgrave
and Kederis the latter being the winter
find s far and it may 0 he will turn
out a firstclass jockey after this win
ters experience Beyond these seven the
possibilities are very slim
Kederis is a rider who has elevated
himself from the coal mines to the Bad
die He was discovered at Seattle last
summer While racing was in progress he
applied for a position in a stable and was
8 quick to learn that he soon became
prominent and was in demand He 13 im
proving every day so it is claimed by
those who are capable of judging
Archbald who has been riding for three
or four years is at Juarez but was th >
star rider at Oakland before leaving for
Mexico He has ridden for the latt twc
seasons at Los Angeles and is a capable
jockey He Is in about the same class
as Butwell and hardlyas good as Dugan
and Powers He IB not as tricky as IJu
gan riding fair and square races wifh
out resorting to artifices of the trade HH
will be quite an acquisition to the ranks
in the east next season if a contract can
be procured on hiu services
Musgrave II a middle class rider but
he will np doubt do duty on the Canadian
circuit u a he is engaged by Mr Sea
gram who rarely races in New York until
the Saratoga meeting begins I may D
that Fain and King will develop some
ability during their experience at Jackson
ville Both are lightweights and a winter
will do much for their progress
Considering that there will h much
better horses racing around the local
tracks next season the Jockey question
track one as the fields will b
larger and bad riders on good horses
bd go
frequently upset all form and destroy thj
chances of their mounts
