THE BATTLER TAKES
RICHMOND BY STORM
Veteran Billy Delaney Gives Wolgast
Good Advice About Training-
WILLIAM J. SLATTERY
LAST night \vas Xelsbn night at Richmond, and it was one of the
greatest nights that the thriving city across the bay has ever known.
The Battfcr was there in all his glorj-, accompanied by his manager,
John R. Robinson, and Promoter Sid Hester. He has several old
lime friend 5 ; in Richmond and ncedlef-s to they were among the
hrst to rush up ruui grat-p his good right hand." Bat seemed very proud of
the honor.
Kelson and his party were met at the county line by the businessmen's
(\u25a0ommittce in automobiles and the procession made its way along the
boulevard and up the main street of Richmond. Everybody in the city
was out and there was also a large delegation of Oakland sports, together
with quite a crowd from Martinez, Antioch and other places along the line.
Bat and his party were taken first to the Pioneer club, where everything
was in readiness for them. Nelson had his hand ready and shook the hand
of every member and invited guest of the club. He made a speech in
which he praised the city, praised the gamencss of Sid Hester and assured
the people of Richmond" that he will make the fight of his life to retain
his title when lie step» into the ring with Wolgast on the afternoon of
February 22. Bat's speech was heartily applauded.
BATTLER SURPRISED AT NUMBER OF FRIENDS
The Dane left Richmond shortly after 9 o'clock and chugged into
Oakland. Though his arrival was pot heralded, large crowds gathered o»
the corners and cheered tlic champion. He stopped in several sporting
headquarters and delivered liimself of more speeches and bowed and scraped
:;<• more applause met his effort?. The Battler never dreamed that he had
-o many friends in Oakland. Kverybody in the city seemed to know him.
Nelson did no training in the gymnasium yesterday. That troublesome
tooth began to buck again and the Battler was forced to admit that
he lo?t the decision to the dentist. He went on the road in the morning
snd as he was a bit light he was just as well satisfied that he did not put on
the gloves. The Battler will continue to ease »:p in his work from now till
the clay of the fight. He does not want to go stale at tliis stage of the game.
Promoter Sid He.^tcr ha? secured a splendid schedule from the Santa Fe,
ihc Koy Route and the Oakland traction -company for the day of the fight.
The Santa Fe will have the mammoth ferry steamers San Pablo and Ukiah,
;hc largest boats on tlic bay. besides two of the Key Route boats, in opera
tion. They will leave the Santa Fe depot in this city as follows: At 9:45, ;
10:30. 11 and 31:30 a. m.; 12 m.: 12:30, 1. 1:25 and 2 p. m.
Those w3io prefer may go by the Key Route every 20 minutes. Special
<-.;•,> will run from Fortieth and San. Pablo avenues, Oakland, direct to the
arena: Special boats and trains will be in waiting to carry the crowd home
immediately after the fight.
GOOD TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES ASSURED
The Santa Fe and Key Route officials have assured Promoter Hc£.ter_at:d
iJic Richmond people that they will be in a position to easily handle 25.000
people on the day of the battle. It is expected that several hundred auto
mobiles will make the trip from Oakland, which is a direct run of about
40 jniiuitti to Richmond by way of San Pablo avenue.
Among the noted visitors at Wolgast's camp yesterday afternoon was
Billy Delancy. former manager of two champions and one of the most famous
men ever connected with the American ring. Dclaney watched the little
man from Milwaukee very -carefully and was very much impressed with his
"His only fault is that he works too hard,"' remarked Delaney after
Ad had torn around for an hour or more. "He is making the mistake that
all challengers make. He should not use up so much of his energy and his
strength in the gymnasium. He will need it all when he steps into the ring
\u25a0with that Battler, for the latter is without doubt the toughest and most
rugged man who ever drew on a boxing glove/
Wolgast is keeping near the weight. He tipped just 134 pounds when he
completed his work yesterday afternoon. He is much faster, than he was
when he trained for Lew Powell three months ago, and as all the fans know,
he is positively certain that he can remove the crown from Nelson's head.
The Richmond people will entertain Wolgast tomorrow^ evening. The
fighting Dutchman from Milwaukee is very anxious to make the trip across
the bay and the citizens of Richmond are just as anxious to show him their
hospitality. Very' few of them have ever laid eyes on him.
HEAVY WEIGHTS PROMISE LIVELY BATTLE
All is in readiness for the 10 round main event between Jack Burns and
Toe WiDis in Piedmont pavilion tomorrow evening. Both men are very well
ihought of by the Oakland fans and a big crowd is looked for. It promises
to be one of the best fights staged in Oakland for months.
Burns rules a favorite at odds of 10 to 8, but there are many who believe
that Willis will handily outpoint the big fellow over the short 10 round route.
Burns as a rule can not get a good start till about the fifteenth or sixteenth.
He is very much like Battling Nelson in this respect, while his opponent is
clever and shifty and always gets away to a good start. Both men are in
line shape for the battle. S ;
Jim Coftroth lias matched Kid Harrison and Antone La Greave to furnish
!he preliminary to the Murphy-Moran fight \rtuch he will pull off at Dream
land the evening of February 28. Both are tough, rugged fighters. La Greave
has never been knocked out and he has met the best of the second raters in
i he lightweight class. The only man who has it on Harrison is Lew Powell.
He has beaten most of the others. As a curtain raiser Dick Murray, the
fighting elevator boy, will tangle up with Tony Earle of Oakland.

AMERICAN LEAGUE
STACKS TO SPIKES
Special Investigating Committee
Can Not Find Satisfactory
Substitute
CHICAGO, Feb. 15. — The lirst day's
session of the annual-. schedule meeting
of. the American league proved unevent
ful. No -action ..was 'taken on tho 1010
schedule; and tlic adoption' of a, new
agreement to continue the leagtie was
also pbstpojied! until tomorrow.
Tho adoption. of a new agreement. to
replace the-. 10 year one, which ends
next November,' was discussed and
there appeared some. difference of opin
ion, as to the length of the agree
ment. All the club owners agreed that
the league; should continue and many
favored a- perpetual agreement. The
discussion on this question will be con
cluded by a. vote tomorrow. -.
The report of a committee consisting
of President IS. li. Johnson and Presi
dent Charles A. Comiskey of Chicago
: recommending/ tlie' use .of __; the present
' style of spikes on shoes~!thls season
was adopted. The committee was sat
isfied that none of the suggested de
i vices would be an improvement over
1 the present style. ' • . .„
. "To discontinue the- present style of
! spikes would slow up the game," said
\u25a0Comiskey. "None of; the substitutes
that we have examined .will have the
effect of the old spikes. I admit that'
they are dangerous, but think it would
bo better to "adopt safeguards such as
shinguards or something like that in
stead ,6f doing away with them. In
my mind baseball is just fast enough;,
and we should take no chances of re
ducing that speed in any way."
. It was. decided that the Philadelphia
club should settle on the same receipt
basis as the. other- teams in the future.
On account of the former inadequate
stands in Philadelphia tha.t club_ for
merly settled on the basis of 12% cents
for- every admission, on its , home
grounds -and received the same on the
road. In the future it will settle* on
the basis of 12^ cents for each 25 cent
admission and 25 cents for all other?.
This will put all the clubs on the same
basis of settlement.,.
Six managers of the league were
present, but none apparently was able
to make any trades with his fellows.
President Xavin of Detroit ", an
nounced that the Chicago club would be
Detroit's opponent .upon the day upon
which he raises the pennant for 1903.
The date will not be decided until the
schedule is adopted.-"*
Fail to Reach Agreement
NEW YORK,' Feb. 15.— Magnates of
the National 'league of professional
baseball clubs failed" to reach any
agreement in New York today on a
schedule of games for the coming sea
son." After indulging in heated debate
from 2 o'clock untll-after 9 o'clock to
night adjournment was taken until 2
o'clock tomorrow afternopn.
Garry Hermann, chairman, of the
National commission, stated this aft
ernoon that Catcher Kling would .be
reinstated. . .
President Murphy of the Chicago club
said tonight that if Kling were rein
stated he would not sell him.
"Why," .said the president of the
Cubs, "1,000 Chicago fans sent me a
letter ' demanding that Kling be kept
in Chicago if he were reinstated. If I
let him go I might as well put a pad
lock on the park gate."
Western League Meeting
CHICAGO. Feb. 15.— The Western
league will hold : its annual schedule
meeting here tomorrow. It is not
known whether a 154 or 168 game
'schedule will be played. It is believed,
however, that a majority of club own
ers will declare in favor of the shorter
schedule.
Donald C. Despain of Lincoln, chair
man 'of the schedule committee,, said
that, while he favored the longer list,
he would make no fight for it if there
were any determined opposition.
The substitution of St. Joseph for
Pueblo will be ratified. •
Opposes Umpire Drafting
CHICAGO. Feb. 15.— President B. B.
Johnson of the American league is op
posed to the proposition to have the big
leagues adopt a -rule so that umpires
can .be drafted from the lower by the
