Astounding Scandal Develops From
Los Angeles Fight
R. A. Smyth
LOS AXGELES. May B.— An ugly
rcandal nas fiereloped over th* Barns-
O'Brien fight, acd O'Brien, who has
been held up before the public ac • a
model both In and out of the rlnc has
had his reputation for honestly, sadly
besmirched. In addition, he must bear
tha ignpsslny of being called a craven j
coward- The expose came after the :
calling off of the bets on the light by
Referee Eyton last night, and Burnt :
was the man to give the facts to the
pcblic. *
Burps told how O'Brien had visited
him at his home In this city last No
vember with the proposition that they;
hay« a return match and that O'Brien
be declared the winner. Burns was co
eacer for a return match and at the
same time «o certain that be could
never get O'Brien Into the rlna; for a
square, fight, he said, that he agreed
to lose to O'Brien, intending to go on
and win one* he had the Philadelphia
In front of him.
O'Brien also has made a statement
'.n which he shift* the blame to Burnt
and McCarey. All of the principals to
the,; affair absolve Billy Nolan from
complicity in it, although he knew on
tbe morning of the fight that all was
rot right with the matchl
KIGHT FIXIXG INDUSTRY
If tbe charges and counter charges
of th« principals are to be believed, tbe
matter of fixing fights has developed
lato c~lte an industry here, it being
claimed that a series of four fake fights
was to hay« been held, tbe betting on
which would yield tbe manipulators a
tidy cum. It is acknowledged that ths
first fight between Burns and O'Brien
was prearranged, but Jeffries, who was
tbe relerea la absolved from having
had any knowledge of tbe fake. Burns
was thoa to have fought FJynn, and. its
the supposition would be that he bad
pone back. It was expected tbe bet
ting would be even money, instead of
2 to 3. as It should have been. Burns'
backers counted upon him knocking
out Flycn in 10 rounds and getting
another match with O'BHea. These
1 1 arts were cot carried out.
Out of, the maze of contradictions In
the statements of the men Involved, It
Is Impossible to get at the truth as
to who first proposed the fake fighf.
Burns and his party claim that O'Brien
wasted the credit of winning and was
-willing to pay bis opponent $3.500 if
be would "go out" to him. O'Brien
claims, on the other band, that be was
the party approached.
Up to tbe moment that bets were de
clared off O'Brien thought he was slated
to win, and he was stunned when he
learned how matters stood. He turned
to Nolan and said:
"Well, It looks Uke I have to fight."
Nolan replied: "Go on; you can win
anyhow.**
In the third round, daring a clinch,
O'Brien eald to Barns: "So you are
double crossing me, are you?"
Burns replied: "You have to fight on
the level tonight.*'
BIG PUBSB O.VL.Y A MYTH
At the gate 121,503 was taken in. Of
this. McCarey said, he paid Burns $16,
000 and O'Brien J6.390. Referee Eytoa
received $200 for bis services. There
never was a $30,000 .purse and McCarey
is blamed for carrying out the decep
tion regarding this. Back of it is a
.•story told by O'Brien that this was of
fered in an attempt to draw a higher
htd from the Rhyollte, Nev., promoters^
McCarey was to have received one-half
of any increase over this bid. The Ne
vada men did not bid and the plan
failed.
O'Brien. In ovnosing the work of the
fUjht fixers. p,ald that his first match
with Burns was to have been a draw,
but that he tried to run it out on his
opponent. He was getting on well for"
four rounds and then came the blow
on the nose which took all the fight out
of him and spoiled his plans. The day
before the signing of articles for the
fight which developed the scandal,
O'Brien claims, he was approached by
Burns with the requent that O'Brien
aJlow himself to be knocked out.
O Brien spurned the proposition as
would a hero In melodrama.
Among other cnarges made by
O'Brien is one that McCarey held a
conference with him recently and said:
"Burns will flip a coin with you to
see who will be knocked out"
McCarey is eaid to have then made
the r statement that Burns would go
out if paid $2,500. O'Brien claims he
replied: "That is a serious matter for
a man to do so cheaply."
PROMOTER McCAREV'S THRIFT
. .Later McCarey eaid he could get it
flon« for $3,500, to be paid out . of
O'Brien's share of the purse. McCarey
was there again with the business
proportion, demanding 5 per cent for
himself as commission. The' upshot of
the negotiations was that the men were
to break clean and O'Brien was to get
the decision. When bets were declared
off O'Brien knew for the first time that
he was to get the double cross. He
was dumfounded and when the gong
sounded he did not sftva to hear it,
and the referee had to take him by
the arm and cay. "Come on."
Burns stood to win $8,65(0 in bets
which did not stand, owing to the de
cision of the referee to call all bets off.
His trainers all backed him and they
had no inkling of tbe framing up which
was going on around them.. The ex
pose is expected to have a bad effect

O'BRIEN AS A ;FAKER
Philadelphia*! Is Without Standing
in the City He Calls Home
PHILADELPHIA. May 9.— Despite all
his shrewdness. Jack O'Brien haa final
ly overreached himself. The Philadel
phlan's bout with Tommy Bprns at Los
Angeles last night, which he 'lost by a
decision after 20 rounds, not only puts
an end to his pretensions to the boxing
championship, but it adds final convic
tion to tbe opinion held by followers
of the ring that no fight in which he
figures can be on the leveL
Thoae who watched his fights closely
discovered that he never showed to
good advantage in a first bout with a
man. George Cole, Jack Williams,
Jack Bonner, Peter Maher, Kid Carter,
Twin Sullivan and Bob Fitzsimmons all
made good showings with him in first
bouts, but In a second or third meet-
Ing O'Brien would defeat them with
ease. \u25a0'
Gradually the method of his system
leaked out The public began to se«s
that he regarded the initial bout as
only a feeler for a second and longer
contest Those who paid money to see
a first contest were simply cheated, for
Jack never cut loose.
Here is the explanation of O'Brien's
unpopularity in his home town, which
haa puzzled many. In six round bouts
permitted by local law's he loafed so
often that he actually became a poor
attraction, being forced to fight at the
Broadway for the small purses offered,
because the big clubs did not regard
him as an attraction.
But the first actual scandal was
O'Brien's fight with Walcott in Boston,
April 20, 1903. This was so. raw a
fake that the crowd quit the hall be
fore the bout was half over. Hissed
for his share of the crookedness, Wal
cott confessed that he was hard up
and bad to have money, hence had lent
blraselT to a scheme by which he
agreed not to knock out , Q'Brlea *on
pain « of sacrificing a greater sum of
money than was offered from the bout.
To make the bargain sure. Jack in
sisted on. having the cash put up la
advance.
The method worked so well that with
variations it waa employed in subse
quent contests. The most notorious of
these was the bout with Tommy Ryan
at the National athletic club, January
27. 1804.
Four months later, almost before the
howl over this bout died out, O'Brien
went still further in a meeting: with
Kid McCoy. Almost every newspaper
in town roasted the pair for fakers,
and O'Brien was hissed for some time
afterward every time ho entered a local
boxing club as a spectator.

Bent r the .first fruits of : the' searching

into' the form • reversals that proved so
disastrous to the patrons of the. track on
Tuesday. The • stewards of the ! jockey
club'devoted all of their spare time yes
terday to the. investigation* begun the
day before. * Twenty persons who were
supposed "to-be in a position to -supply
Information bearing upon : the races of
Woolma,"; Ethel Day, Bob Ragon, Cloud
light, Meringue, Hedgethom, Logistilla
and : Gossiper were summoned, before
them ; and V questioned at 'length. .The
results; the stewards felt, warranted the
suspension' of Trainers Cotton and Far
rell:; The latter, ': It was ascertained, in
formed ; Jockey : Keogh .when he I gave
him I his instructions „• tho ; paddock
that It was his . opinion that Cloudlight
would, riot >un, her 'race. ' The mare
was ; a ; heavily played favorite in the
Flying Squadron: handicap, and rah =as
her trainer had predicted, finishing next
to last. .If the" mare was sentito the
post unfit to -race it was an outrage on
the racing public,' ".and the punishment
which has been meted our to Farreli
cannot :be; considered at all severe. In

lightly. ' \u25a0*'\u25a0-\u25a0

i Trainer Cotton gave as an excuse
for. the confidence with vwhich Wbolma
and Tonic were, backed, coincident with
the sudden improvement of the two
horses, that they had worked. well be
tween ; races.. ,; ; The . stewards regarded
this L as :a - nimsy pretext, especially In
vlew J of . the .way ... in -which, the Apple

throughout the season. r
.The suspension of these two trainers
undoubtedly, will exert a .wholesome

RACE P.VTHOXS PLEASED
The suspension of Trainers. Cotton
and Farreli will ; not only prevent the
starting of their horses during the re
mainder' of the meeting, but carries
with. It \ an odium, which is not the
least undesirable phase of their pun
ishment\u25a0'\u25a0; Woolma and Tonic, two of
the Applegate & Cotton horses that
were carded to start today, are ren
dered ineligible under the ruling..
The announcement of the determina
tion of the offlclalsno longer, to toler
ate in and put running was received
with marked approval, by the patrons
of i the track and constituted the prin
cipartopicof. conversation In turf cir
cles. It is on all sides that If the
reputation of the local track .for clean
sport is to be maintained vigilant' and
decisive measures must be resorted to.
The racing: yesterday was of the or
dinary sort.; Only, one favorite figured
in the list of winners^ but this was not
"surprising, , In. view of the mediocre
fields that made, up the card.
LO.\G SHOT AVIXS THE FIRST
-/The 2 year old race, which came first
on 'the program, had such an open look
that 4 to 1 could be had against the
favorite, Swaggerlator. The latter got
away': from the post last and failed
to. Improve hi* position. Arthur
Hyman Jumped out in front right after
the "break and set a merry 'clip to the
paddock, where he succumbed. Grant
Edison's Iridio fllly, Sadie 11, and Rey
Hindoo fought It out to the wire and
the former won a nose decision. Be
Thankful; closing stoutly, took third
money from Arthur Hyman, less than
a length behind the leaders. The win
ner was as high as 60 to 1 In the bet
ting and was little fancied." despite her
previous good race.
Z' Mina Gibson." well ' backed at 7 to, J
on the strength of a paddock tip. made
her field-look cheap in the second.
"Cricket"- Kelly ; beat the barrier with
her and. after galloping along in front
all the way. she won as far off as her
rider -pleased. Michael Mulvaney out
lasted Kumiss, ; the favorite, by a half

R. A. SMYTH
length for the place. Kumis3 wu
away from the post poorly and had ti>
make up much ground to get near the
money.
Peggy O'Neal, backed into favorit
ism over Bell Eeed. disposed of tha
moderate field with which she ran in
the third.. Bell Reed went to the fron;
right after the break, bat found seven
furlongs too far and blew up in tfca
stretch.
Pickaway, second choice In th«
fourth, had the speed to hold Prtaco
Magnet, the favorite, safe at al! stages.
Lucrece finished a close third.
DAY'S SECOND .SURI'RJSE
Daniel C. displaying marked Improve
ment under Jockey Fischer's guidance,
was able to score an easy victory In th©
fifth, at a mile and a quarter, after
Markle Maye'r. the favorite, had stopped
to a walk as a result of having, been
injudiciously rushed into a Ion«r lea<l
In the flrst part of the race. Fury
just did last, long enough, to save the
place from the stoutly dosing 'AdonU.
Thanks to "Cricket^- Kelly's vigor
ous ride. Miss Officious,'' whose price had
| receded to 5 from' Z in spite of sub
stantial stable support, scored a nosa
! victory over The Mist, favorite of the
last race. Jockey Keogh . managed to
get The Mist cut off when the barrier
went up and had a world of ground to
make up. Getting up on even Urais
; with Miss OScious on the far turn, th»
\ two fought it out all the way to the
wire and Kelly put it on Keogb when
\it simmered down to the final drive.
Miss OScious proved herself to be a3
game as a pebble. Star of Kunnymede, on
which the Los Angeles contingent un
belted, had dazzling early speed, bus
failed to stay and could do no better
than finish third.
Gossip of the Track

terday from Manager McElroy of tho

to the front at Emeryville. The lad
was the only boy to pilot two winners

earned, and if he continues to show his
present form in the saddle he will be
the find of the season in the jockey

H about as capable a. rider aa Emery
