RICHMOND BOOSTS
FOR THE BIG BATTLE
Work on the Arena Is Being Rushed and
Structure Will Be Ready Soon"
WILLIAM J. SLATTERY
The N"e!s6ii-\Yolgast boom lias struck Richmond with a thud, and every
tight fan on both sides of the bay has taken up the" cry till it seems to
resound from all the hilltops. If the citizens of the progressive Contra
Costa county town can do any good for the match it bids fair to result
in one of the greatest ring attractions that California has ever known. All
they nrc praying for now is fine weather for Washington's birthday. If they
are :h;;s favored everything will work but to suit everybody.
True to his promise, Pat Dean >tartcd in on the mammoth arena
yesterday morning. Before nightfall 40,000 feet of lumber had been dumped
ai the ball park and a large squad of carpenters got busy with saws and
hammers.; Dean hopes that the arena v.ill be ready within 10 days. It will
be one <•!* the finest that the stale has ever known and will seat something
like -20.000 persons. Surely no more can". be expected to witness the battle.
The chamber of commerce, city officials, leading businessmen, and in fact
everybody iii Iht transbay city are boosting the right right up to the skies. A
comrfaiUce has been appointed to confer with the railroad companies regarding
special rates and f fta >t service on the day of the contest. This committee will
confer with the officials of the railroad today and it is expected that the details
v>fll be adjusted to lhe satisfaction of all concerned.
SMITH MEETS WITH APPROVAL
The selection of Eddie Smith as referee for the great championship
contest al>o seems to <have met with the approval of both lighters, their
managers and the patron- of the game. Tom Jones, speaking in behalf of
"Wolgasi. plainly stated hi^ position yesterday afternoon, which removed all
*]oi:bi that he feared he would iu>t get an even break.
"1 held out l\»r Jack Welsh because he is a personal friend of mine and
because he referced for VVolgast before and gave satisfaction." said Jones.
"Rather than put the match in jeopardy 1 finally agreed upon Eddie Smith.
Ijn not sorry, cither, for ! feel certain that Wolgast will get what is due
him. Anyhow, all we want is an even break. I trust Smith to give us this."
Jones and Wolgast are as confident that the little fellow will beat Nelson
as Nelson is that he will be returned the winner. They realize that there
v iil be no chance lor a decision to be rendered, for the reason that one of the
lighters vi!l surely take the count before the forty-fifth round has been
reached. This is a foregone conclusion.
As far a> Nelson i> concerned he is easily pleased. All a referee has to
• !'» when he fights is to stand back and watch for a foul. The Battler has
never been known to hold an opponent and so long as the other fellow does
not clinch him and hang on. the light is bound to be a clean, open one, which
i lie fans like so well to witness.
BOTH EAGER TO VISIT ARENA
Doth Nelson and Wolgast arc eager to go over to Richmond for the
purpose of looking at the town and sizing up the arena. The Battler probablj'
will make the trip sonic day during the coming week. Woljast also plans to
pay the city a vi?-i: very sliortly. Needless to say. both will be welcomed
v kit open arm- l<y the citizens across the bay.
John K. Robinson. Nelson's manager, accompanied by Billy McCarncy.
the Philadelphia promoter, will cross the bay this morning for the purpose of
coVifcrring with Dean relative to various incidentals regarding the bout.
-They will be met by a committee headed by Dean and Mayor Willis, who will
i urn over 10 thorn the keys to the city.
The Battler lias lost another pound and a half. Yesterday when lie
jumped on die scales he discovered that he was down to 134JS. lie shook
hi> head and decided then and there to cut out his hard work for a few days.
Hal would be better satisfied if lie weighed about about 138 pounds, for then
he c««nlii bank on something to work off.
Nelson stepped six lively rounds yesterday afternoon with his brother
Arthur, Abe Silvermari and Joe Myers. A big crowd reported on the job to
watch him go through his stunts and he «howed them aj.l that he's the same
old lighting Dane that they know so well. He looks to be in grand shape
aiid boxes taster and better than ever.
WOLGAST IN GREAT SHAPE
Wolgast, on the other hand, proposes to increase his work daily. He
<ays that he i^ heavy enough and that he can afford to box from 10 to 20
rounds a day right up to within a couple of days of the fight. Me is doing
more and harder training for this fight than for any other which he ever
had in his lite.
Wolgast boxed 10 rounds yesterday afternoon with Hobo Dougherty and
;\vo more youths who were hanging around looking lor excrci>e. Manager
Jones wants to keep his little fighter busy all the time. If he is beaten by
NeUon, Wolgast can not say that lack of condition lost the battle for him.
J lc has everything in his favor so far as good form is to be considered.

LANGFORD SEEKS
A RETURN MATCH
Black Demon Sore and Believes
He Was Robbed; Flynn
Alter. n. etc tic I
[Special Dispalch to The Call]
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 9. — Following
the remarkable showing made by Jim
Flynri against Sam Langford at Mc-
Carey's pavilion last night the air to
day is full of challenges. Langford is
sore, believes he won and wants-an
other chance at Flynn over any route.
Flynn is out after Ketohel and chal
lenges the erstwhile Montana cyclone
to a bout, either 10 rounds or 45, win
ner take all, and a side bet to boot.
Jim Barry is after either Flynn or
Langford and probably will be put on
with the former at 45 rounds March
17 at Jeffries Vernon arena. Fight fol
lowers and puglHstic experts are di
vided in the decision. The third morn
ing paper gave it to Langford and an
evening sporting extra. calls it a draw.
Joe Woodman, Langford's manager, de
clares his man was robbed of the de
cision and threatens to . never allow
him to light' again in Los Angeles.
Undoubtedly Flynn made a better
showing than was expected even by
his friends. He made his good show
ing by keping right on top of Lang
ford all the time, and the. black ter
ror could not open up the fireman's
defense to land a knockout. Both men
fouled so repeatedly by butting each
other in the face that many fight fol
lowers declared both should' have been
disqualified and the match stopped.
Portland Fans Rejoice
Over Seattle Decision
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
PORTLAND, Feb. it. — Portland base
ball fans are rejoicing over the assur
ance brought from Seattle tonight by
W. H. Lxicas, president of the North
western league, that there will be no
Portland team in the class B league
this year. This also shuts out" Aber
deen's aspiration;?.
President Lucas says the court de- j
eision in Seattle Monday denying j
Aberdeen's injunction against comple
tion of a four team schedule has for
ever settled the controversy \u25a0 which i
broke with such force when J. Cal !
Ewing introduced and had passed his
resolution for Manager Rowland in the
recent meeting' of the Coast league
magnates.
"Walter McCredie is relieved of fur
ther.worry, and Congressman McCredie
is not in a position to come to the res
cue, much as he might desire.

BILLIARD CRACKS

Large Crowd Views First Game
Between Demarest and Cut*
ler at the Graney
! ' ; \u25a0
Local billiard enthusiasts enjdyed-;a
rare' treat in the Graney billiard room
last night, when Calvin Demarest 'of
Chicago and Bert Cutler of Boston per
formed in the first of a series of exhi
bitions that will! continue \u25a0' for , the next
; two "weeks. A crowd of 500 was" on
hand to see the sport.
The experts first engaged ..in a game
of "red ball," which^Cutler won, 10 to
7. This style of billiards proved an in
teresting novelty and at- the conclu
sion of the match the winner- was
\u25a0warmly applauded.. . ' •"• ~~
A 200 point 18.1 balk line game fol
lowed, which -Demarest won after a
keen contest. The Chicago '• l^d' broke
into his best stride right off the reel
and, despite lack_ of practice,', com
pleted his string of 280. in eight shots..
He finished with, an uncompleted 'run
of 01.
Demarest's style , of play was a. sort
of a revelation to the spectators. The
Chicagoan steps around the play at a
10 second clip and shoots : so. rapidly
that he seems -to; take 'no aim what
ever. --Being especially sure of his
masse shots, he frequently indulged in
them, which adds much of the spectac- %
.ular to his game. He gave a startling*
exhibition of fancy shots just before
the red bail game.

JERE LYNCH MUST
PAY ARCHITECT
Ordered lo Settle Bills That
"Stupefied, Paralyzed, Terri=
fied and Horrified" Him.
v The bills that "stupefied and para
lyzed and terrified and horrified" Jere
miah Lynch must be paid. A jury In
Judge Sturtevanfs court returned a
verdict yesterday afternoon after brief
deliberation directing the politician
and" Egyptologist to reimburse Henry
H. Hedger, the architect. In the sum
of ?4, 375- for the preparation 'of plans
and specifications for the Ibis build
ing in Bush street near Kearny. This
is in addition to $500 already paid
Hedger.
Lynch's cross complaint for $75,165
damages for alleged neglect on the
part of the architect was Ignored by
the jury. The amount asked for by
Hedger was $3,450, but the jury fig
ured his percentages upon a some
what lower total. Yesterday's court
proceedings consisted of lengthy argu
ments by the attorneys, Arthur H. Ba
rendt and Frank McGowan striving to
convince the jurors that they should
award Lynch vast damages, while
Louis Beedy urged a verdict in favor
of Hedger. The personal Integrity of
Lynch was attacked by Beedy in his
argument.
"The testimony of Lynch is not
worthy of credence," said Beedy to the
jury. "The defendant is not to be be
lieved. He said that he and Hedger
agreed that the building was not to
eosfmore than $85,000. but this could
not have been so, because in his ap
plication to the board of works for a
permit he estimated the cost of the
structure at $125,000. He is. in fact,
contradicted by his own handwriting,
by his statements made on the witness
stand, by his statement made in a
deposition in October, 190 S. as well as
by the application for a building per
mit."
McGowan and Barendt contended
that Hedger was not entitled to more
than the $500 he had been paid for
his plans, because, as they said, he had
told Lynch the building would cost
but $85,000. Avhereas .in fact it had
cost $170,000.
"As an instance of the unreliability
of Hedger," said Barendt. "he tolii
Lynch the ibis panels would cost $50.
But when the bills came to be paid
each of these sacred scavenger birds
of the Nile cost Lynch $100."
SONOMA COUNTY EXPECTS
BIG HARVESTS THIS YEAR
Every Condition Favorable for
the Most Bountiful Crops
[Special Dispalch to The Call]
SANTA ROSA, Feb. D.— A4l indica
tions point to 6ne of the best crop sea
sons in tlie history of Sonoma county.
Not in many years has there been such
an evenly distributed rainfall as dur
ing this winter to date. The first
rains came early and gave progressive
farmers and ranchers opportunity for
early plowing and seeding. Through
out the winter there have been fre
quent rainfalls of sufficient quantity to
keep the ground soaked.
For. the : first time in many years the
rain has been so distributed that there
has not, been any high water in streams
and overflowed lands anywhere in the
county. The weather has also been
Just cool enough to hold the" growth of
vines and trees back so that they are
all in excellent condition for the spring
growth.
The hop growers declare that roots
never before came through the season
in such fine condition and "a bumper
crop is looked for this year.
Vineyardists ar* now in the midst
of trimming and all unite in the state
ment that the vines have wintered in
magnificent condition.
The fruit industry appears to be at
its best this year. Large quantities of
new apples are being set out in the
Gold ridge section about Sebastopol.
while all over the county new trees of
various kinds are being put out.
