The Call’s Page of Sports THEY ALL LOOK GOOD WHEN THEY’RE FAR AWAY. WALLFLOWER CHAMP SIGHS FOR PARTNER Burns Seems to Be Bashful and Promoter Mil ton Clark Is in a Quandary There is no telling at■the present time who will go against Ad Wolgast, j the world's lightweight champion, in j this city on the last night of the ' month. Though saddled and buckled and ready to come back to the zone which wafted Its championship breezes his way, the' holder of the lightweight i title must wait for a day or two at j least, while they dig up a suitable op ponent to pit against him. Promoter Milton T. Clark, the ,man \ behind the match, is bent upon Riving the fans the best that he can deliver. | He has his eye set upon Frankie I of Oakland, conqueror of One Round : Hogan, Lew Powell and countless oth- '< ers. Burns, however, Is not quite will- Ing to take the chance against the J champion. • Perhaps he does not realize I his golden opportunity .or perhaps he j Is not sure of himself after his last start agralnst" Powell, but at all events he still '.remains 'on the fence. Both Antone La Grave and Johnny McCarthy . are eagerly watching and waiting for the: time to come when they in tear into Wolgast All Clark has to say is the word and either; match is made. These boys realize that the one chance of their careers is at hand,-and they are 'bent upon era-* bracing it. Financial terms are not standing In their way. They are look- Ing 'forward to the future an«J the "chance of making such a future by a ■how against the title holder. "La Grave Will make 133 pounds at 8 o'clock or at ringside for Wolgast." pays Manager Sam Pitzpatrlcjt. "This is our means of showing the public that my • man is a real, legitimate light weight. willing and ready. for the best of them if hft gets the chance., Any for feot up to $5,000 will suit us and we ■will deposit It as soon as the match Is "made." * Harry Foler, in behalf of McCarthy. Is equally anxious to get a crack at the champion, though he did not mention any such liberal weight terms as those advanced by Fltzpatrick. The chances are that McCarthy can not make such a low weight, though in all likelihood he ■will came to the bat and act within reason If Clark selects him. Perkins and Clark had a long and varied conference about the match yes- | terday afternoon, but at the conclusion they were apparently as far away from a settlement as when they opened negotiations several days ago. Clark offered the managrer of the Oakland boy a guarantee of $2,000 for his eiyl, win, lose or draw, with a priv ilege of 20 per cent if the house draws $13,500 or more. This looks like a very ! reasonable proposition, especially when j one stops to consider what Wolgast was forced to afoept tnr his en,d in both his contests with Battling Nelson. Burns has not been in the business half as long as Wolgast was at that time and the latter was forced to go against much harder opponents. Burns' manager wants a flat guaran tee of $2,500 or 20 per cent of the re ceipts, no matter what the house amounts to. Clark, howevgr, could not take a like view of the. situation. He has guaranteed Wolgast $7,500 for his portion of the house, which is a lot of money, though not an excessive demand for & champion when one looks back at Xelsoji, Gans and others. "I want to give the fans of San Fran cisco the first real championship match of the year," says Clark. "I am look- Ing for class, anil I am willing to go a long route In ortler to secure it. Wol gast is costing me $7,500, and I think that a $2,000 guarantee for Burns is fair enough, especially when one con siders trie difficulties i will encounter In getting a pavilion in which to stage the contest. "Champions come high, and Wolgast 4t no exception to the general rule. But he is the big attraction and. of course, 1 must eater to him first of all. Now J if Burns thinks he can beat the title i holder, here is his chance. If he wants * to make a side bet he can get the bet- < ter of the odds. If he thinks he is a < great card let him gamble with me, for * I am willing to give him 20 per cent of ( the house if it goes over $13,500." i It must be said for Clark that he is < acting the part of the real sportsman < who is doing the best he can to give ' the patrons of the game a match which j ' will attract practically every one of its ] followers. He has to figure on an even , break at least, so the $2,000 offer to' < Burns looks reasonable on the face of it. La Grave Is just aehfng for a chance ' to Jump into the ring against the champion. One word from Clark and the Butchertown boy will agree to all the terms, including a ringside weigh ing or jumping on the scales at 8 o'clock, each weight to be 133 pounds. According to Manager Fitzpatrlck La Grave scaled just 138 pounds yester day afternoon. "I want to meet the champion at the championship weight," said La ' Grave over the phone from San Raj fael last night. "I will leave the de tails of the match to my manager, and the rest will be easy. I think that I can beat him, and I am looking for ward to becoming the lightweight champion of the world. Let it go at j that." Wolgast promises to be in this city j immediately aft«r his battle with I George Memsic In Los Angeles tovnor -1 row afternoon. Apparently he is tied i up with Promoter Clark, and, appar i ently, he wants to come to San Fran cisco to vindicate himself, to show the severe critics that he is a real 20 tound performer and not a wall flower as he ha« been dubbed. At all events, the fans wil look forward with grea^nterest to the Wol gast match, no milter who is selected as the opponent for the champion. He ; is the one big attraction, the man whom they are all Itching to cast their eyes on, so it is to be hoped that a real live opponent will be selected to give him a battle worthy of his 1 title.

WHISTLING RUFUS AND TAR TO SPAR Fans Expect a Typhoon When Sailor and Coon Mix Again The double attraction which the Dreamland club is staging tomorrow night at Dreamland rink Is creating more than usual interest. T^he v bout Between Rufus Williams, the colored middleweight, and Sailor Bowers, and the contest between Eddie Dennis and Abe Label should draw a big house. Williams will be matched ' against some good middle weight of reputa tion if he wins. The colored fighter Is being trained by Ed Schivo at Shan non's resort in San Rafael and will be in perfect shape. The colored fighter looks like one of the most likely big fellows that has been developed around here. Bowers in down at Millett's quarters getting ready. The tar will be heavily backed, as he has many admirers in North, beach who will back him to win. Williams is a 10 to 8 favorite over the white man. Eddie Pennis will probably go east If he defeats Abe Label decisively. The local scrapper has practically cleaned up his division with the exception of Labeli and if he is victorious he plans to go after bigger game. Label is one of the hardest hitters in his division and he is a good rushing fighter who likes to swap blows. He should extend Dennis to the limit. In anticipation of a big crowd, Matchmaker Schuler proposes to put up the bleachers so as to accomodate the crowd. Along with the top. of two bouts, there are six other events on the card between some of the likeliest boys boxing in the short distance game.

EDITED >w ■rarDiAM tr.« Goldberg JOHNSON’S PROTEGE SUNK BY “GUNBOAT” Monohan Show Streak of Yellow and Smith Flattens Him in Four Rounds 'Walter Monohan, Jack Johnson's white hope, was flattened in foijr rounds last night at the Oakland wheelmen's club by Gunboat Smith, the heavy weight. There was nothing to it, as the former jackie tore right after his man, and Monohan was hop scotching around the ring from the outset. The end came in the fourth when Gunboat landed a haymaker on Monohan s point and he took a long sleep. Smith showed good form, but just what he is capable of doing in the ring is hard telling, as Monohan was not much to beat. He showed a decided streak of yellow. Johnson was behind the latter and kept advising his man to hold on. Monohan heeded the advice, of his second throughout. Gunboat tore after his man from the outset and with well directed body punches had Monohan weak as ear « as the second round. In the third frame Monohan went the canvass twiofl anil it was only, tie bell that saved him. Smith was right after his oppone i.i the fourth and sent him reeling the mat. It was evident that the flnl was there, and Eddie Smith wave. Gunboat to his corner, as he knew th the "hope" was fast asleep. Ed Oampi and Jimmy Fox. a coup c of shifty bantams, boxed four fa rounds, which were refereed by Chan plon Jack JolinsT»n. He called it a dra nnd the decision seemed to meet wi approval.

S .S # is so successful in the treatment of Contagious Blood Poison is that this medicine strengthens and builds up the stomach and digestive members while it is purifying the blood. . A great many of the medicines used in treating Contagious Blood Poison are composed largely of Mercury and Potash, and are recom- -,". mended to the sufferer because they are intended to dry up or remove*, the humiliating outward symptoms. But such treatment cannot cure the disease, and its continued use wffi often so weaken and disease the * stomach as to make a ntrvous wreck of the patient. And too, when these mineral medicines ere left off the smouldering poison takes on new life, and soon the'old symptoms of ulcerated mouth and throat, brown scaly splotches, falling hair, sores and ulcers, etc., return with increased virulence. Then the disease makes more rapid headway because the weakened system offers less resistance to its ravages. - S. S. S. cures Contagious Blood Poison and it does so by purifying - the blood and keeping the stomach and digestive members in perfect V condition all the , while by its fine tonic effects. S. S. S. is a purely vegetable remedy, made from the extracts arid juices taken from natural v> roots, herbs and barks; it does not contain a particle of mineral in any f form. S. S.
