Hr Chicago, Nov 7. Eruil Thiry entcr-
H fained us for the greater part on
H I . Lour last eening with a discussion
H ' on the fight situation in general, and i
H incidentally furnished us some in-J
H formation on the prospect of a match
H v between Patrick McFarland and his
B i most hated and respected ring en-1
Hf ., cniy, Jack Britton. From what Emil
H had to say on the subject of that
H excellent match, we gather that Pat-
H rick and Jack- are slated to settle I
H their differences In a New York ring
H about the middle of December.
H "I went to New York after Packey
H beat Jim mi Duffy in Buffalo the
H other night and talked matters over
H concerning a Britton fight," said
m Thiry., "I gave the promotors to un-
H dorstand that Packey was ready for
m tho BrlLton party any time he got
H i enough money to repay him for tak-
HT Ing the time to got in shape for a
H i . clever fellow like Jack. Thoy thought
H I the thing oer and decided that Dec,
H 1C in Madison Square Garden would
H be about the proper time.
HL "You see, the only other available
Hj.i i garden date before that time is Nov.
1L This will be a big match, and
j,t Billy Gibson and his aides figure that
H' there is not enough time left prop-
' . orly to advertise the mill If the boys
H?v I meet early In November. After Nov
Mw, p 11 the garden will be in use for a
few weeks for flower shows and such
, foolish things.
Ik I "Anyway, Packey Is not himself
KL J now, and I deem it advisable to wait.
IB , I dragged him out of a sick bed to
IK box Duffy so as not to disappoint our
IS I friends In Buffalo. He did not go
IK very well, but will be all right in a
RK week or so. In tho meantime we
IMP will pick up what maiches wq can
mr- before closing with Britton for that
r December date Thoj want us to
box Jack O'Brien in Philadelphia
Nov. C, and I guess that match will
go through Jack's big brother Is
trying to dictate to us on the weight
but he can't get away with that kind
of stuff.
j "There Is only one man who can
I nose Britton out of the December J
date with McFarland That man isj
Ad Wolgast, and I hardly think Tom
Jones wilf let Ad sign ud, though the
I fighter himself is perfectly willing At
I least hesays he is, and J Imagine he
is conceited enough to think he can
whip my champion. That will be
about all for this evening, but re
member that one Jack Britton is due
for an artistic lacing next December"
I A most curious alibi was sprung
recently for losing a baseball series,
but it Is one which has more truth
than fiction in it, accoding to scien
tific rensons which are judged to be
correct It relates to the failure ofi
the Minneapolis team, thrice cham
pionso of the American association, to
triumph oven the Denver team, Win
ners' of the Western league
Denver won four of tho five games
played and accomplished it so easily
that there was every reason to be
lieve that the Denverites, although
In a circuit of a lower classification,
were far superior in plaving ability
to the class AA flag winners
Jack Hendricks, manager of the
Grizzlies, gave out an Interview be
fore the .games started stating that
he thought the Denver climate would
prove a serious handicap to CanUl
lon's men
And so it proed Hugh McCredle,
Sr . on his way to Portland from a
trip to Oklahoma stopped in Denver
land met a number of the Minneapolis
players the night after they lost the
j third game.
Rcnlized Difficulties.
They had just begun to realize that
they were up against a stiff proposi
tion in icgard to the climatic condi-
tion and altitude Dropping the first
two contests had been thought to be
the result of their long, hard trip
across tho country, blU when the
third also went by the board there
was a different storv to tell
The pitching staff of the Millers
had been complnining of the difficul
ty to get their curves to break prop
erly, and had practically .given It up
as a bnd Job on account of the rare
condition of the air
Denver Is hung up nearly one mile
above sea level, and the resistance to'
a ball is much less uuder normal
playing conditions Accordingh the
visiting pitchers were obliged to use
fast ones in preference to tho curves,
and oven hero thev were placed at a
disadvantage because a hard-lilt ball
will carry much farther than in a
lieavlrr atmosphere
Players Get Mad.
Mr. McCredic said that the entire
club were as mad as a kid who had
just had an Introduction to a hornet,
and were trying to discover some rea.
son to claim the had been jobbed
Denver having the advantage in being
accustomed to the conditions, had a
much easier time than it expected.
The same conditions held good re
garding the base running of the two
teams In the rarefield atmosphere
the Millers were down and out after
they had made a sprint between the
sacks, and it took a three-baggor for
them to completo a half Journey of
tho diamond
At least this is the story which is
being peddled around in the east as

Ing tho fact that an edict from Ptesi
I dent Ban Johnson barred Schacfer and
AllrocU, Griffith's comedy pair, irom
doing their sketch during a ball game,
Manager Griffith has decided to re
tain his two comedians net sensou.
There Is no doubt that these two et
erans did much to help the Nationals
instSeason Their coaching, even al- I
tor the comedy had to be cut during!
contests, was ot the best, for both j
know the game thoroughly and dls- j
played intelligence In directing bade
runners. Griffith considers them
drawing cards as well. Schaofer, bv'
the way, is a useful hand to have
around for utility purposes, while Al
trock can earn his salary by pitching
to his team mates in practice on days
wlieu thoj arc slated to face a left
hander Thoio hae been innumerable of
fers made Griffith for Schacfer by mi
nor league teams In search of a man
ager, yet Griffith has refused to part
with Ucrmanj Schaefer also has a
staudlnd offer from John J. McGraw
of the Giants, who would pay him well
to do his stunts on the coaching linpb
for his team. But Griffith does not
intend to part with cither of his co
medians. The srherae of having them
on the lines to amuse the crowds was
original with him and he figures that
tho salaries paid them are well spent.
Schaefer and Altrock arc doing a
turn on the vaudeville stage this, win

I Pitchers, to be successful, must
Keep cool and collected during eveiv
stage of a battle The moment they
get a trifle llustratcd or winded they
are liable .to grow unsteady. Often
a twirler when at bat drives out a
long hit, a triple or a home run. He
races aiound the bases as fast as he
can make his legs wiggle A few
moments later he is llkel to be on
I the mound again, hulling to his oppo-
j nents.
Then, If over, he has a tendency to

1 he is wise and believes he fs a bit
i wobbly he will resort to all sorts of
j tricks to delay the pastime until he

j out all they can. But even then he
is likely to "alk or hit a man. or
I somebody may nail a base hit. Be
ta! e he can recover all the good pitch

to bo wasted.
Some clever infielders, when they
I get a pitcher on first, can run him
until he's all petorcd out They let
lilm take a good lead off the bag and
then trap him between the bases. B
fast work in rnsslng the ball back and
forth they can chase him until the
twirler is almost ready to drop In his
tracks. Unless ho is a mass of iron
he cannot work the next round as
steadily as before Then often the
batter who follows him fouls off a
couple of balls, giving the hit-and-run
sign, and gots him winded before be

of meat into the gloves to protect' the
palms of the hands when under a hot
lire from the box.
One of the first National lp&?ue
catchers to use a left-hand glove with
fingers was Meyers of Indianapolis,
more than 27) earb ago. Somebod
made a glove for him that caused a
general laugh. The fingers were so
long and the surface of the glove was
so broad that Meors found it difficult
at fiist to hold a pitched ball lie

Meyers had broken all ol his fingers
also both thumbs. In handling Boylo
with tho flngerlcss gloves, so that he
readily tried the nev (one, apd after
much perseverance he proved that It
had merit After that all the catcher
adopted n finger gloe tor the Wt
hand The glove was improved lpon
when tho manufacturer put solid
leather tips on the ends of the fingerc
to protect the nails Even tlen catch
ers were not envied by the other play
ers, for their right hands usually wer
mangled until physicians had to !io
called In.
Buck ICwing, Sliver Flint and Char
ley Bennett, threo of the greatest
backstops the game ever produced",
were among the first to ndopt the
mitt, which was a comparatively llsht
affair, but made it impossible to In
jure the fingers of the left hand. In
cidental these star catchers began
to show that one hand was sufficient
to catch a pitched ball. They discaid
ed the right hand glove and soon per
fected a moement of the left wrist
that placed the mitt in the right posi
tion to receive the ball. ,
Kwing once told the writer that dur
ing an entlFc season ho ''didn't catch
more than a dozen pitched balls with
his bare hand He used to enjoj
catching the puzzling curves of Keefc,
Welch and Crane with the mitt, which
made It almost Impossible to have a
passed ball With the right hand
gloveless catchers gradually learned
to throw to bases with greater speed
and accuracy than ever before, for a
ball thrown with a gloved hand nat
urally traelcd slowl and without the

,Thcro Ls one among the number,
however, who might be clasped a?

was. This is Eddie McGoortv of Osh

Intelligence (han any of the other
One who has been connected with
the fighting game for many years de
clares that Tommv'Ryan never was
much better as a hover than McGoor
ty, although the latter lacks Ryan's
aggressiveness. It was only the" lat
ter's niggedness. ir, is said, his game
ness and ability to hit that made him
such a wonder, as he was not clever.
Fight fans declare If McGoorty could
absorb tome of Knockout Brown's
fighting spirit ho would be leader of
the lvS pound division within a short'
Billy Papke seems to be looked up
on as being nearer McGoorty's claso
than nn other boxer in the gamo.
He Is not quite as sc'en,tific, but, Is
fast and a rough fighter when rightiv
conditioned. Negligence Iu training
Is said to hive kept him from leading
the division in the last few years
However, he seems to have reeovorpd
Trom his dormant state and Is again
fighting with the same vim that made
bis bouts with Ketchel and Hugo Kel- '
ly memorable. If Papke can train
down to 15S pounds and retain his
rtrength he Is the second best candi
date for the laurel wreath.

superior of the trio and should put in
a strong bid for the title if an eliml-'
