M Chicago, Nov S. That Hughey Me- j
H j hcgnn, Australian champion light-
H -weight, and victor over Mntt Wells, 1
H English ' champion, on a foul in 14 1
H rounds, will be a big factor in xthcj
H , boxing game in this country when he
H lands here, is the opinion of at least
H , one good American judge who saw
H j the young man perform against Wells
H ' in London a short tlmo ago.
H ' William J. Snyder, one of the old
H I lime fellows of the game in this city
H and once a liberal backer of Frank
H Garrard and other good local boxers.
H has just returned from a trip abroad
H I Snyder is a court reporter, but al-
H ways takes the deepest interest in the
H boxing game, and his long connection
H with It makes him one capable of
I judging.
H j Listen to what Bill has to say about
m thiB young Australian, who is said to
H 1 be on his way to this country:
H "If over a boxer had a chance of
M making good In a foreign land, this
HI ' chap, Hugh Mehegan, Is the man,"
HI '. Bill told an interested group the other
H ovening, "I saw him in a battle with
H I Mat'. Wells and he certainly made a
H great shewing against the conqueror
of Freddie Welsh.
H f "This boy is a fighter pure and '
H ' cimplo, and as such should make a
H ( ' great hit on this side of the vater ifi

"But I don't think that is going to
happen to Mehegan, although he is

t ways willing to go In and take a
chance. lies a big, rangy fellow
very much of the build of our old
I Frank Garrard, who Is now a letter
j carrier here. But Mehegan boxes in
I an altogether different stylo from
! Garrard, who was a clever fellow and
stood up straight to the work. He
ur.cd a dandy left straight and in hook
and a right cross that was a dream.
"Mehcgu. i docs not work that way.
lie crouches a great deal, has u heavy
hook nnd a short swing with the
right that is a deadly weapon when
ho gets It in around the head He
simply smothered Wells after the
first six or olcht rounds of boxing
but during the cary rounds Wells got
in many damaging punches, at least
some that looked damaging.
Can Take It,
"But one of the remarkable things
about Mehegan Is his positively un
canny ability to assimilate punish
ment. The stiffost punches to head
and body seem to havo utterly no ef
fect upon him. Wells used all of
his best stuff on Hughey, hut couldn't
budge him It was a slugging match
after the tenth round, and Mehegan
J had all the bettor of that style of
1 milling. '
"As a matter of fact, it would seem
to me that Hughey can force most
of the clever fellows to box his stylo
unless he is put away in a hurry.
The foul at the finish looked rather
deliberate to me."

I Ing to Manascr Chance llafman was
the club s leading hitter and base run
ner up to the time he had his claBh
with Murphy In the winter of 101 1.
I'or three years he had led the team
In every department of the game, but
after this set-to he lost 'Intel est, grew
sour and refused to give the team his
best cfiorts becauso there were sov
ral playeis who were getting a high
er salary. Had Hofmnn been paid ac
cording to hJs true value to the team
he would have been the greatest out
fielder In the league, Chance thinks.
"Murphy ruined Ilofman when he
wanted to givo him only a salary of
?n,G00 a year after leading the club
I in hitting and base running," said
I Chance "If It had not been for rac
I Hofmnn would not have signed for
$5,300 Ho did it to please me. There
. were a few players getting more mon
ey and ho wanted as much and ho
was entitled to it. Murphy tried to
I trade him fir three seasons, but I op
posed it, as I knew ho was a great
player. Ho kept at mo so long that
l finally consented.
"Hofman Ib not through by any
means, nnd if he recovers his health
he will give Pittsburg the greatest
outfielder It evei has had Arthur
is a corking good sticker and thero
ie not a better base runner in the
league. Dreyfuss will pay him the
money and he will have a wonderful
season next year As a fielder Hof
man is remarkable, and I was sorry to
lose him."
Chicago, N'ov. S President Murphy
of the Cubs must be planning the
writing of a book entitled "Sherlock
Holmes In Basohall." This is Indi
cated In revedations mnde by a Cub
player, who stated that the Cub mag
nate admitted to him the engaging of
detectives to report club house saying
to hoadquarterHh
Moreover, the mysterious party
horned into tho players' Innner circle
because he adopted the clever ruse of
reporting at the west side and intro
ducing himself as "Pitcher Stone from
the Southern league
Tho fact that Murphy employed de
tectives to spy on the players and re
port whatever they said Involving the
club owner is not news, as it bocame
known more than a week ago, when It
was also loarned that a player who
had been with the club for several
years was engaged 'n tho role of
"stool pigeon." The latter has been
reporting to Murphy throughout the
year, while the detective worked only
durln? the c'osing dnys of tho last
season and throughout the city sc
ries. How he went about his taBk
is tho now angle. The "stool nlceon"
stunt was even unknown to Frank
Chance, who only last week rffeie:!
$500 to any one who would give him
the player's name The fired man
ager wanted to know simply to sat
isfy his own curiosity.
The mysterlots "Pitcher Stone" who
reported reams of typewritten (matter .
to the waiting ears of Mr. Murphy,
got away with his gamo without even
putting on a uniform. He simply was
lutroduccd to the players by the in- '
dividual to whom Murphy later ad
mitted the whole affair. None of
the men asked any questions and it
was the easier to hang around un
noticed because Manager Chance wub
not with the club just then and the I
men were more or loss careless about
what they said before strancis.

Chicago, No. S. Unless Gurry
Herrmann relents and makes a "bet

John Evers of the Cubs will not trade
tho veteran shorUtop to Cincinnati.
The new Cub leader gave out a
statement .o this effect boforo len
Ing for his home in Troy, X. Y, Said
"Mr. Herrmann gives us the choice
of any two of the following- Mitch
ell, Bates. Kn'rely, Kyle. Egan, Grant,
Almeida and Phelan Well. I consid
er MIkfU Mltr.hrll n f-orl hnll ntnvor
but he can't play short stop. I would
hardly consider any of the rest. What
wo want Is Tinker hlmBelf, or a short
stop somewhere near his equal. If
Herrmann can get a real shortston
from some other club and then will
oifer him to us w may talk business
with him. We don't nee I outfield
ers, nor do wo need third basemen,
second basemen or first basemen The!
3horston job s a mighty important
one. Tinker can take care of it ns
well as any one I kiiaw of. and J am
not goln? to lot him out at the e.v-j
penso of the Cubs'
"It hns been said that Joe and I
could never get along together with
me as manager In answer to that
I will say that we have been 'scrap
n'lis" ever since I joined the team.
Wo had a fist fight the first yenr I
wa6 hero. Bet that m'xup rnd our
subsequent quarrels did not affect oun
ball playing. We gel along all right
on the field Wo would set along
'all light next year if Joe would slay
hero and plr.j ball
"But I am not standing In his way.
I will trade him to the-Reds in "a
minute If they will make us a lair
offer for h'im I have other trades
in view Involving Tinker, but I would
prefer to let him go to Cincinnati,
for that la the placo he wants to go."
I tBy Tom O'Rourke. Famous Riug
i Promoter and Now Manager of
Al Palzcr )
! Al Palzer is rushing up the pugilis
tic horizon toda as the real and only
r-uccessor to Jack Johnson. He is a
physical marvel and needs only a Ut
ile more expcrlenco to round Into ihe
greatest fighting machine tho world
has ever Been.
I long tried to get a match for Pal
ber with Johnson, but the negro al-,
ways evaded it. Now, In flew of the,
notoriety attached to Johnson, I do
not expect an club would stage him
Hc'o Sure of Al. '
I shall not claim the title for Pal. I
er (as I suppose a lot of pugilists
I ind their managers will do), but I will
match him against nil of the best men
In the world In the elimination bat
tles nnd I know Al will come home
Ihc winner.
I have handled scores of fighters in
my time, but none of them have had
all the qualities Palzer possessqs. His
240 pounds of bono and muscle are
well distributed over his six feet
throe Inches of frame He has a
nunch even more powerful than a
mule's kick and he can stand up un
der punishment and comes back
stronger than any man that ever
stopped IufWo the ropes.

i New York Xox S P.elationa be
tween the two major baseball leagues
have become perfectly amicable as a
i result of the sensational world's
series Just closed. For soveral voars'
tho National and American circuits
I worked in close harmony, because It,
was to the interest of each or us to
do so. But behind the mask of I
friendship there still rankled a bit I
ol ill will, with Ban Johnson, presi
dent of the American league, on one
side, and John T. Brush and John J.
McGraw of the New York Giants on'
the other.
The world's series between the
GInnts and Red Sov brought about a
complete reconciliation among these
three powors of organized baseball.
John T. Brush and his time-honored
foe burled tho hatchet at the confer
ence in Mr. Brush's home, prior to
the opening of the blue ribbon classic
of baseball, a month ago.
McGraw and Johnson shrink hnmlc
and called everything quits on the
way back from Boston. It was the
first time the two had spoken to each
other In ten years.
Desertion Threatened Leaque.
Ban had been after McGraw's scalp
ever since the New York leader de
serted the American league and Bal
timore in the old davs of the war and
lumped to this city with the best of
his players. This desertion for a
time threatened to break up the
young American league, but it event
uallv resulted In its salvation. The

The reconciliation between Ban
Johnson and the New York National
management signifies much to close
followers of baseball. It has been
'riven out officially that the New York
Highlanders will play next season at
the Polo grounds Such an arrange
ment with the local owners was en
tered Into last month
Mr. Farrell has Insisted that this is
but a temporary move, a step to avoid
,'resignlng of a long lease on the Hill
top property He Insists that work
will be rushed on this now plant, 'at
225th street and Broadway, and that
he will remain Et the Polo grounds

Improved for baseball purposes
One of the main arguments ad
vanced by the New York American
league club against pooling interests
with the Giants in a playing field has
been that this step would leave a I
loophole for some new league to
break into New York. Mr. Farrell has
tied up considerable capital in real
estate at 22oth street and Broadwa..

any possibility of invasion by a third
