S I Keeps Promise.
I, SAN FRANCISCO. Dec. 21. If
H St Henry Berry makes good his promise
H W to let Charley A. (Spider) Baum go,
the veteran pitcher will be the now
I manager of the Sacramento ball club.
3 Some weeks ago Henry Berry told
top-notch condition when the gong
rings. Pat declares that he will be in
shape for one gruelling match and an
ticipates a tough time. But with one
Patrick Gilbert farther advanced in
pugilistic circles the show is over.
Baum he would let him go if he could
better himself, for he said the Spider's
record of fifteen years in the Coast
league entitled him to his release and
a chance to manage a club.
Baum talked things over with Char
ley Graham before the latter went to
Los Angeles to attend the annual
meeting of the league, and there will .
bo no trouble about thair coming to
terms. It is distinctly up to Berry- If
he lets Baum go, Sacramento will
gladly take him. Baum wants to go,
for he figures that would be a nice
way to round dut his long career In
the Coast league. He Is deservedly
popular in Sacramento, for he pitched
there in 1909, 1910, 1911 and 1912, and
ho knows all the fans of that town,
and many of them by their first names.
It would start the new club oft right to

would fall through.

HAS 'STRING ON IT'
Champion Will Meet Any
Man in Ten-round No-decision
Bout Fulton Wants
Affair to Be Real One.
NEW YORK, Dec. 21. There is lit
tle likelihood of Jess Willard and any
of tho contenders for the stellar title
In pugilist circles meeting in tho ring
very soon. Willard's dofl to box any
man for the benefit of the Red Cross
has a "string" attached to it '
The champion is willing all right to
meet any man in tho ring, but his
charitable effort Is to be limited to ten
rounds with no tittle at stake. In other
words he wants a "declslonless con
test" Fred Fulton Is willing to meet the
champion, Tho big .Minnesota giant
believes ho can tako tho champion's
number. But Fred wants the battle to
be real championship affair. There Is
little likelihood of the title changing
hnnd in a ton-round affair and Ful
ton wants the bout to go at least twen
ty rounds if not longer.
Fulton Is the most persistent chal
lenger of Willard. Willard says he is
ready to meet him. But so far the two
have not come together to talk busi
ness. Sam Langford, tho Boston "tar baby"
is also angling after Willard's scalp.
But It is doubtful whether Sam will
get a chance. Willard drew the color
line after he wrested the championship
from Jack Johnson, and it is not likely
that a negro will again have tho
I chanco to win tho premier honors in
Meanwhile fight promoters are not
hurdling over one another in an effort
to stage a heavyweight combat. Wil
lard has not been a popular champion.
He has mado only one appearanco In
the ring since ho won the title that
was against Frank Moran in New York
in which ho defeated the blonde Pitts
burgher in ten rounds.
Willard has devoted all his time to
his circus. This has brought him con
siderable money, but little popularity.
Perhaps Jess sees the light. Ho came
out today with a statement that he
wants to" sell his circus. He is now
going to live a life of ease and is ready
to meet anyone in the ring. It is
problematical who the second man
