BARRELS OF QUEENSBERRY JOY IN SIGHT NOW
Big Uns and Little Uns Are Signed
For Matches, So Smoke Up, Gentlemen
WINNER IN LOCAL
FUSS OF HEAVIES
TO MEET CHAMP
That Is, He'll Meet Winner!
of McCarty-Palzer Go
at Los Angeles New
Year Day
WILLIAM J. SLATTERY
With a pair of formidable heavy
"weights and a pair of lightweights of
the upper ranks in line fi»r 20 roun<i
bouts, the fight fans of San Francisco
can rest assured that they will witness
two rattling goo. mills within the
next two weeks. The big: fellows. Gun
boat Smith and Frank Moran. are
signed for the evening of Frid.y. De
cember 27. for 10 rounds at Dreamland,
and the little fellows, Frankie Burns
and Harlem Tommy Murphy, will step
around in the Eighth street arena on
New Year afternoon. This combina
tion ought to prove a great boost for
the local game, despite the fact that Al
Palzer and Duther McCarty are
matched for New Tear day at Los
Angel p«.
The coming matches are vital affairs
and will figure conspicuously in deter
mining the lightweight and the heavy
weight championships of the world.
The winner of, the Moran-Smith affair
certainly will be pitted against the
winner of the Palwsr-McCar.y mlxup
down s'-'uth. and the man who wins ths
final bout will reign as the heavy
weight champion. The winner of th*
Murphy-Burns battle will be sent in
against Ad Wolgast. and the man who
gets away with that one will be sent
in against Willie Ritchie for the cham
pionship.
YEP—BUSINESS IS GOOD
Thus the local fighting game is _a_l
smoking up. It probably will be a bat
tie between Los Angeles and San
Francisco as to which city will land
the great matches, but the very fa<*t
that they are in sight is enough to sat
isfy the fans. Competition is needed
to make the game good, and there is
plenty of competition right now. with
Jim Coffroth of San Francisco and Tom
Mrrarey standing out as the head
liners. Mcl Moffett of Oakland lost out
in his first attempt to pull a big one.
hut he may get lucky later on.
Dick Donald, the game sport ffom
Medford, Ore., arrived yesterday after
noon, ready to bet his money on his
northwestern light champion. Bud An
derson, In a mixup with any of them.
Donald hoped he would arrive here in
time to get his slashing fighter on with
Burns or Hoppe, but was disappointed,
as Coffroth already had made up his
December an4. January cards.
MEDFORD M _N WILL WAIT
But the Medford man was not so
soreiy disappointed, after ail. He ex
pressed his willingness to let it go over
for a couple of months and send his lad
in against the winner. Donald believes
he has the makings of a champion in
Anderson and will bet his bankroll on
the boy.
"We are looking for a 20 round
battle, not a 6 or 10 round one," said
Donald yesterday afternoon. "Ander
son has cleaned up all the boys of his
weight In the northwest, and he and I
believe that he will clean them up here
also if he gets a chance. All we want
Is a start. We will bet our money, and
if we are beaten we will go home good
losers."
It's a pity that Donald did not-arrive
a few days sooner, for If he had been
on the job the chances are that he
would have secured a match with either
Burns or Murphy. As jt is, the dates
are all filled in, for nobody has even
suggested that Moffett would run an
opposition show over in Oakland with
Coffroth operating on this side of the
bay.
DVENLY MATCHED
The contestants in each of the com
ing matches appear to be evenly
matched, and undoubtedly will bring
out the full strength of the betting
fans. The four principals are in line
for the championship crowns in both
divisions. This meai.s that they are
sure to wade in and give the fans
exhibitions that will be worthy of men
tion on the great Queensberry book.
Burns has a big following over in
Oakland. The transbay sports always
have backed little Frankie heavily in
his ring encounters. ev«*n when he
fought Wolgast a year and a half ago
and looked like a hopeless shortender.
They were loyal to him then and went
the limit, but since then Burns has
come back and aided them in cashing
many a juicy bet.
The little Oaklander would not fight
Wolgast for the price that Coffroth
offered him. He admitted at the time
that he figured Wolgast the toughest
one of the entire bunch and made a
proposition then to take on any of
tie others. Murphy was the first avail
able opponent over the 20 round route,
so the Oakland blonde quickly consented
to give him an engagement.
Ml RPHrS REPUTATION
Murphy has always been a good card
M Francisco. He has lost only
one fight here, and that was to Packey
land on Thanksgiving day. 1911,
but he was coming like a Battling
Nelson at the end of the twentieth
round, and the majority of those who
saw the battle firmly that
Harlem Tommy would have laid the
Chicago lad low had the battle been
■scheduled for 30 rounds Instead of 20.
Packey was very weary when the final
gong sounded.
Burns is in line for a crack at the
best of them. The form that he dis
played against One Round Hogan three
months ago stamped him as a regular
puncher and a wonderful defensive
fighter. He was so very good that
bay- been sidestepping him ever
f-ince. Although he would not con
sider Wolgast for an ordinary guar
antee, he will gladly consent to go on
with Murphy, Ritchie or a few of the
others who have been shouting their
challenges.
As for the big fellows, they are sure
to stand out as great cards. With
Flvnn back among the bushers, the
heavy weight title lies between Mc
carty, Moran. Palzer. .Smith and per
haps a couple of others on the far side
of the Rockies. But this quartet has
been an active one and is deserving of
recognition from the fans all over the
country.

COPPER AT DREAMLAND
WILL HAVE TO BEHAVE
Supervisors Order This and
Other Reforms at Local
Boxing Arena
All fighting at Dreamland pavilion
must be confined hereafter to \he ring.
and there must be no shoving around
of spectators by special policemen.
This edict was issued to prize fight
promoters who attended the session
of the supervisors' police committee
yesterday.
Supervisor Caglieri said that one
special policeman had the bad habit
of "tossing around" unsuspecting spec
tators who happened to be watching
the encounter from the aisle, and that
this practice must cease. Instructions
also were given by Supervisor Hocks
that seats should be properly numbered
and that no benches "without backs"
should be sold under the guise of $1.50
reserved seats.
The supervisors will visit the pa
vilion with the fire marshal in an en
deavor to arrange a better system of
seating patrons of the Queensberry
sport.
Hocks further complained that per
sons occasionally managed to come
down from the gallery and obtain a
reserved seat by tipping an usher, and
that in consequence the* man entitled
to the reserved seat was out. and in
jured.
Supervisor Hilmer insisted that the
100 chairs which were reported broken
should he replaced by safe seats. The
supervisors will take up a number of
proposed improvements with the owner
of the building, as they do not con
sider the promoters responsible for
many unsatisfactory conditions.

CHANCE CERTAIN
TO LEAD YANKEES
Frank Farrell Makes Up His
Mind He'll Have Peerless
Leader or Bust
Deal Practically Assured,
Though Foxy Orange
Picker Saws Wood
Special Dispatch to Tbe Call
CHICAGO, Dec. 13. —Frank Farrell,
owner of the New York American
League club, announced today before
taking a "train for the east that he
would summon Frank Chance, deposed
manager of the Chicago National
league club, to New York the first of
the year and if possible close a deal
with the former Cub leader to manage
the Highlanders in 1913.
This was Farrell's first public state
ment on the proposed Chance deal.
The New York magnate would not go
into details.
"I plan to open negotiations with
Chance immediately after' my arrival
in New York."" Farrell said. "I have
not communicated with him up to this
time, hut I have heen assured that he
is* willing to manage my team and I
will talk business with him as soon as
I am ready. The sooner I reach an
agreement with him the better.
TICKLED TO DEATH
"I might add that I am more than
elated over my success in obtaining
Frank as a leader for my club, and
I can honestly say I expect him to
make the greatest manager we have
ever had. I will do all in my power
to aid him to get a strong club. I
will not stand in his way in anything.
He will have full charge of every
thing as far as selecting the players
is concerned and also as to directing
the club. I do not believe in interfer
ing witb my manager and, as J un
derstand it. Chance wrvuld not accept
a club unless he had full control. He
is going to_ make the American league
stronger in New York. I . think we
will outdraw the Giants if we have a
winner, and I surely am going to aid
Chance in getting one.
HIGHEST SALARY EVER
"I can not say what terms I will
reach with Ch—nee. I understand he
desire* a big salary before he will
handle the club. I expect to give it
to him. It would be indiscreet for me
to say how much I plan to give him
before he has signed his contract.
Would it be wrong to say he will be
the hierhest manager in baseball? No,
I do not think so. You can say for
me that I think he will be, and that
I will not bar McGraw of the Giants, who
receive- $18,000 a year. The. American
league is eager to obtain Chance, and
I am more than desirous of getting
him and am sure we will have no trou
ble in agreeing -to terms."
Chance is expected to stop in Chi
cago on his way to New York about
January l to meet Farrell and talk
over terms.
TROUBLES FOR EVERS
Baseball critics' predict a falling out
between Manager Johnny Bverwief the
Cubs and "Red*' Corridon,. the young
ster that comes to the Chicago Na
tionals from Detroit in the trade with
Cincinnati that will make Joe Tinker,
veteran Cub shortstop, manager of the
Reds.
Corridon. like Evers. is an aggres
sive ball player, and local critics say
Evers and the youngster may not be
on speaking terms after the first week
of the 1913 season. Corridon is said
to be hard to."-*manage. He is painted
as an irritable player with something
of a temper. Evers styles himself the
"human crab.''
Hank O'Day. last year's manager of
Cincinnati, is undecided what he will
do next year. It is understood that
both the American and National
leagues are seeking his services as an
arbiter.
Chance Himself Says Little
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 13.—Before
leaving for his ranch at Glendora to
day, Frank Chance declared that he
had received no official communica- •
Hon concerning the offer said to have
been made by the New York American
owners.
"I only know what 1 have seen in
the papers," said tlie former Chicago
National manager, so I will have noth
ing to say until I learn officially what
is going on. If any one has been
delegated to come out and see me
about managing the" 'Highlanders I
have been given no advance notifica
tion."
Chance denied emphatically that he
had made any statement to the effect
that he would not return to baseball
unless he was offered $20,000 a year.
"I neve-jr said anything like it," he
said. "It might be foolish to knock
my own game like that, because I
might get more," he added wilh a
smile* "I did say that I had not de
cided to return to baseball, and as I
have not as yet received any offer
to manage the New York Americans
or any other team, I have not made
up my mind whether to play ball again
or stay out here and pick oranges.
"At any rate, I do not think I would
accept any offer until I had an op
portunity to talk the matter over per
sonally with those making it."
Two Leagues Pull Together
Special Dispatch to The Call
NEW YORK, Dec. 13.—An interest
ing feature in connection with the mul
tiplicity of trades that Were necessary
to make Frank Chance manager of the
i Highlanders is that for the first time
' since the baseball war began the
j American and National leagues are
I really trying to help each other out.
Five years ago anything that gave
an intimation of strengthening a team
in the rfval league was promptly
blocked. Time proved that the second
major league, instead of being a detri
ment, really has been of benefit to the
National league. Incidents prove that
where there are two teams in a city,
one has kept the interest stimulated
while the other was away, and the
patronage instead of being cut down,
according to the strength or weakness
of the rival clubs, has increased enor
mously.
When the Highlanders broke Into
New York they were regarded as Inter
lopers—as enemies to the old league—
and National league men looked upon
their partial failure with a chuckle of
satisfaction. Now it has come to the
point where the Giants would like to
see the Highlanders succeed, because
It helps the patronage of both teams.
McGraw was strongly in favor of
Chance, a great manager, going to the
Highlanders. In fact, he was instru
mental in bringing about the deal. It
was In the power of the Giants' man
ager to block it. He not only waived
claim on Chance, but was among those
who from the beginning urged Frank
Farrell to secure tha famous Cub
leader.

British Polo Challenge Formally Accepted
Tryouts Will Be Made for American Team
Special Dispatch to The Call
NEW YORK, Dec. 13.—An international polo match for the Hur
lingham cup, emblematic of the world's championship, will be played
in this country next summer between teams representing the United
States and England.
This was decided upon at a meeting of the executive committee of
the Polo association held at the Whitehall club today. Chairman Her
bert made the formal announcement that the English challenge for a
aeries of matches, which recently was received by the association, had
been accepted and that a formal acceptance would be mailed to the
English polo authorities within a few days.
It was further anndunced that Harry Payne Whitney had been
selected to captain the American cup deferfding team of 1913, which
apparently sets at rest the rumor that Whitney would not play in any
further matches wherein the Hurlingham cup was at stake. The further
personnel of the American team is still in doubt. The cup defenders
will not be selected for several months, in all probability, as a series
of tryouts will be held in the various polo centers of the United States
in order that the best combination may be available to meet the English
quartet.
No dates have as yet been selected for the matches. The English
authorities in their challenge requested that dates be named during the
month of June, if possible, in order that the English team might return
home in time to compete in the national championship series. It is
thought probable that this request will be granted, unless unforeseen
obstacles arise.
Those present at the meeting of the executive committee, in addition
to Chairman Herbert, were R. L. Agassiz, Joshua Crane, John C.
Groom, August Belmont, W. A. Hazzard and Harry Payne Whitney.
FORM PLAYERS GRIN AT

Special Dispatch to The Call
EL PASO, Dec. 13.—Friday the thir
teenth, hoodoo day, failed to make
good, for the form players landed the
coin today. Three favorites and two
heavily played second choices won for

fair ones crowded the grandstand and

The only form reversal of the day
occurred when Black Mate, at 15 to 1,
dropped from the clouds to win easily
from the heavily played favorite. Eye
White. The third race run on the thir
teenth day of meeting, on Friday the
thirteenth, did not deter the public
from plugging on the favorite, Bal

ner. He was bid up to $500 by N. Vail,

EXCLUSIVE POLO CLUB
SNUBS LUTHER M'CARTY
Pasadenans Refuse to Let
Young Ring Giant Play
in Game Today
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 13.—Luther Mc-
Carty, pugilist, will not play polo to
morrow with the mallet wielding horse
men of the exclusive Pasadena Polo
club.
The announcement that the young
heavy weight, who learned to play polo
in Canada, would participate in a game
at Pasadena tomorrow brought forth a
protest from Frank C. Hogan. president
of the club. He said that it required
the sanction of the executive committee
to extend an invitation, and none had
been formally issued to McCarty.
The youthful scrapper said he had
been led to believe that he was confer
ring a favor on the club by accepting
an Informal Invitation and postponed
a trip to the mountains in order to take
part. The announcement of the presi
dent was a surprise, and McCarty said
he had no desire to participate if there
was any question about the invitation.
So, instead of playing polo tomorrow,
Luther will he trying to push a pair of
pack mules up a mountain trail.
Jim Flynn, defeated here Tuesday
night in his heavy weight fight with
Luther McCarty, left today for New-
York, where he said he would rest a
while and then try to fight his way
back into the championship line.

POMONA RUGGERS
PLAY PALO ALTO
FOR SUPREMACY
North and South Clash This
Afternoon <on Stanford
Turf Field for a
Championship
Special Dispatch f© The Call
STANFORD UNIVERSITY. Dec IS.—
Eighteen strong, the husky Rugby foot
ball players of Pomona high school ar
rived in Palo Alto this morning, fit and
ready for the championship game here
tomorrow afternoon against Palo Alto
high. The team was accompanied by
Coach J. ■VVilsoneroft. Prof. H. P. Rey
nolds, principal of the high school, and
Superintendent V. R. Murphy.
Tomorrow's game will decide the
championship of the Academic Athletic
league of northern California and the
Acadamic Athletic union of southern
California. The game will not be for
the state championship, however, as
'Berkeley hierh school, which is not affili
ated with the Academic. Athletic league,
defeated the lor-al champions of that
league. Pomona was defeated by Los
Angeles high school hy a score of 3 to
", but. the Pomona team was given the
game by the league officials after they
had protested owing to the fact that the
Los Angeles team had played three In
eligible men.
The Pomona team went through their
pacs on the Stanford turf field this
afternoon tn get accumtomed to the
alien soil. They are a fast lot of play
ers, judging from the "pep" they put
Into their practice.
The game tomorrow is bound to be a
fast and hard fought one from start to
finish. The two teams are the pick of
the northern and southetm schools, the
local team being practically on a par
with the Berkeley fifteen, as Palo Alto
was not defeated in the game with
Berkeley until three minutes before the
finish gun.
The reputation of the Palo Alto team
for speed and knowledge of the fine
points of the Rugby code is well known
In this part of the state. The southern
players are a bunch of speed burners
likewise, so tomorrow's matching of
skill, speed and wits will be worth go
ing a long way to see. The game will
be called on Stanford field at 2:30
o'clock.
With the exception of Ktrksie. who
replaces Bowie at fullback, the local fif
teen is identically the same as the com
bination which defeated the Htookt'-n
high school ruggers on Thanksgiving*
day. Captain Davidson and Coach
"Jumbo" Morris have been putting on
the finishing touches of their training
routine with a light workout today.
The Pomona team outweighs the col
lege town fifteen by seven pounds per
man in the scrum and 11 pounds per
man in the back field. Local supporters
do not consider this fact a serious dis
advantage, however, as the way the
lighter Palo Alto scrum held the heavier
Berkeley pack proved that they \\-e rP
capable of holding a heavier team. The
average weights of the teams are: Pi..,
Alto scrum. 149,- backs. 143; Pomona
scrum, 156; backfield, 154.

St. Mary's Again Defeat
The Mission Five
OAKLAND, Dec. 13.—St. Mary's col
lege second varsity basket ball squad
defeated the Mission high school team
this afternoon in a closely contested
game, 23 to 22. It was the second vic
tory for the college team.
The collegians led from the start
and at the end of the first half the
score was 16 to 8, but the play of the
high school team improved in the sec
ond period and the college team was
closely pressed. Gillen for the Mission
team and Moy for the collegians were
the star point getters.
Tomorrow night the varsity candi
dates will have another tryout against
the artillery team from Fort Barry.
The final game of the interclass tour
ney has been set for next Monday aft
ernoon, when the seniors meet the,
commercials for the championship cup
offered by the student body.
