Gunboat Smith Wants Another Chance SoMatch
May Be Made If Willard Keeps His Word
■ ;i evidently is the mag-net that is drawing all the heavy weight
in the United States. According to the latest dispatch from Chicago,
d in The Call yesterday morning, Jesse Willard, the much heralded
y from Missouri, is making arrangements to forsake the Windy Ciiv
about the first of next week to come to San Francisco and try his luck over
20 round route. The presence of Willard on the job ought to liven things
up ;i bit, though the next thing to do
will be to dig up a suitable opponent
for him. The only one in sight at
the present time is Gunboat Smith,
and, r . lie is ready to do the
"I want to go out to San Francisco
and travel over tht- 20 round route,
just to show them that I am there.'
Willard. "I realize that I will
have to win the heavy weight cham

L<M Angelea, and I may as well start
now. T can't do much more good
'» d the < ast"
•Willard and his manager, Charley
Cutler, have been living- in hopes of
setting a crack at I.uther McCarty in
New York in the latter part of the]
present month. How they ever were
deluded in such a manner is a mys
tery. The -whole world ought to know
by this time that ItcCarty is following
in the footsteps of the champions who
came before him. lie is playing- for the
vaudeville stage and not the ring, and
Wβ may as well forget him as a fighter
for at least four months to come.
While Willard and his manager are
twirling their thumbs around Chicago,
Tom Jones, manager of Ad Wolgast, is
back to the Windy City as
fast as the Overland limited will carry
him. Tom hopes to Induce the mam
moth cowboy to take refuge under his
managerial wing, for Tom believes that
he can yet make as much money out of
• avy weight as he did out of his
little fighter.
But Jones may find his task far more
difficult than he has been figuring on.
In a special dispatch to The Call on
Wednesday evening Willard stated
emphatically that he intends to stick
right by Charley Cutler and that he
will be advised by this man. whom he
Fives all the credit for bringing him
to the front.
But Jones has plenty of nerve and
an excellent line of talk. Tie can lie
n>oended upon to wade right in and
make hi? talk to the cowboy. The
Wirt that he might be robbing
another of his meal ticket will not
bother Tom in the least. He hap bp»n
in the game so long that he has be
come absolutely cold blooded like the
f them. All he can see. is him
self and possibly his own fighter or
liis own fighters. He never has been
known to overlook a single bet.
If. Jones gets Willard he will take
ght t<> L»oa Angeles and there
V acrainst Bull Young or one
other big hulks who
are at present stalling around the
southern city looking: for a match. But
if WilJard sticks by Cutler he will come
right out to this city and take a
chance against any of them whom the
promoters can tumble up for aext
month. I hope that Willard

Jim Buckley is still confident that
Gunboat Bmith, can put

though the sports of San Francisco
will agrr-e with him. Jim is
Ing around in the hope of landing
Willard for the Gunner. When he
■<i that Willard was bent upon
•j; to San Francisco, the veteran
New York manager was highly elated.
He now feels certain of a match.
'They can't blame Smith for the last
-rlit." said Buckley. "It was all
Mnrans fault. The Gunner did the
tie could. The other fellow kept
running away and holding on all the
time, so Smith could not get near him.
Had Moran stood up and fought the
bottle would not have lasted six rounds.
Just give Gunboat a chance with a
]i»e one and he will show you all a
few wrinkles."
In the event that he dots not get a
crack at Willard, Buckley probably
•will take Smith over to London and
pit*'him against Bombadier "Wells for
a 20 round go before the National
Sportine club within the next few
weeks-:. Buckley received a cablegram
from the London club yesterday offer
ing him the match. He asked for more

summer and he probably realizes that

_At< Welle i« a- clever big feliow and
pressed of. a, eiiss jaw. it must be
admitted that Smith ought to stand an
excellent chance of stowing him away
inside of 20 rounds.
It looks as though Tom McCarey. the
Los Angeles promoter, has stolen a
march o n Jim Griffin and nailed Knock
out Brown for Joe Rivers in the south
ern city for the afternoon of February
Zt. The latest reports from the south
say as much and Griffin evidently has
come to the conclusion that Brown Is
lost to him, for he received no reply to
the wire which he shot to Knockout
two days ago.
Rivers in the meantime is billed to
take on Leach Cross for 10 rounds in
New York next Wednesday evening.
The Mexican figures to hold his own
J all right, but it will not occasion much
I surprise if Cross outboxes him. The
Gotham dentist is a bear over the 10
round route, for he knows every trick
of the game, and it is hard to get a
line on his peculiar style of defense.
Bud Anderson, the lightweight cham
pion of the northwest, seems to be out
of luck. Ho is patiently awaiting a
match and he bars no comers. Bud
could break into the four round game
and start as a star, but as he is a
Marathon p. rformer, he refuses to take
a match under 10 rounds, and he pre
fers 20. Like Battling Nelson, he gets
better as the battle progresses. He
never has been known to back up.
With Frankie Burns eliminated,
there is no lightweight in the local
field to put up against Anderson. They
may possibly induce Willie Hoppe or
Butchertown fame to divorce himself
from the four round ranks, but as Wil
lie is still young and inexperienced, the
chances are that he will decline all
overtures, especially as he is a great
card in the little bouts and can al
ways pull a heavy purse.
Willard Versus Bauer
CHICAGO. Jan. 10.—Jess Willard, the
■ heavy weight, who claims a victory
lover Luther McCarty. was matched to
|day to meet Frank Bauer of St.
I Charles, 111., in a 10 round bout be
fore a Fort Wayne, Ind., club on .lanu-
I ary 22. They met once before and the
affair was stopped in the sixth round
with both fighters in bad shape.
Errors Spice of Life in the
National Game
CLEVELAND. Jan. 10.— J!m Dele
hanty. whose trusty club whaled tli*
Millers into a third championship, is
i spending- the winter in Cleveland rest
ing up from the rig-ors of the year and
preparing for the spring training of the
Millers. He is said to be much heavier
than he was at the end of the season
and in greatly improved health. He is
entertaining himself with the Cleveland
ortera and the other day dealt out
the following brief and argument for
the appellant in error:
"Fans generally roast a player when
he makes an error that results in a run
or two. It's dead wrong. They forget
that the player never makes an error
intentionally. At least, I never knew of
a man to throw a ball game. Errors are
the staff of life of baseball. They are
to the national game what good food is
to the human stomach. Without the
latter one would not be able to subsist
lung—minus errors they would soon
; write the obituary of the one and only
J sport.
"A player takes a fozzle more to heart
j than anything else, not even excepting
failure to hil in a pinch. I know, for I
have been playing th<> game for 10 years
i now. Some players are more fortunate
than others when it comes to making
"I guess I am one of the unforunate
j kind. Donie Bush belongs to the same
i'tol as yours truly. I venture to say
that Bush and I have not made 10 errors
between us in the almost three seasons
\vr- hnv." been working together that did
j not result In runs for the other fellows.
1 >u« or the other of us seems to have
I the unhappy faculty of kicking the ball
or making a bad throw when a perfect
play would refire the side.
•'There are others just like us. Larry
j Lajoie is very unfortunate in this re
spect. Few and far between are the mis
j plays that are chalked against the
I Frenchman, but the percentage is all
against him when he does make a bob
"Every one who knows Larry knows
that an error hurts him to the quick. It
!is bad enough to make the misplay
without having the fans hoot the un
lucky player. They should bear in mind
; that any time errors are eliminated
I from the srnat national game the inter
. est would die and the magnates could
i raze their $500,000 plants."
Holds Red Watson to Draw;
Zotte Puts Bellhop Out
• of Business
l,pxv Powell's comeback stunt in the
roped arena last night at Pavilion rink
might be termed fairly successful, as
he held '"Red" Watson even for four
whirlwind rounds. The boys set a ter
rific pace from the sound of the gong
until the final bell and there was little
to choose between them at the finish.
Referee Foley declared the contest a
draw and the verdict seemed to satisfy
the crowd—the largest one that has
attended a four round show in this city
in some years.
Powell took an early lead and boxed
in his oldtime form. W r hen the first
round was over it looked as if he would
peck Watson to pieces, as he was using
Ins hand as he did of old. He
jabbed Watson incessantly and shot out
a right which might have brought the
battle to a close, but it was a little
high of its intended mark.
Watson put up a gritty battle, as he
kept right after his man and by his
aggressive work at close quarters man
aged to slow up Powell with his bat
tering blows to the stomach. The An
geleno scrapper put up an excellent
uphill battle and in the last round he
was fighting the better of the pair.
Watson landed a couple of hard
rights to Powell's jaw near the bell
which put Lew a bit to the bad. Th*>
boys were fighting like a couple of
gamecocks when the bell sounded for
the end.
The opening round was Powell's by a
wide margin and he had a slight shade
in the second. However, Watson was j
landing some telling body smashes in
this period which were affecting Pow
ell, but the latter's clean work gave
him the edge.
At standoff boxing Powell was the
more finished of the pair, but Watson
carried his man along so swiftly that
he was not allowed to stand up and get
set. Watson was the aggressor in the
third and looked to have the edge, as
his body blows were telling.
The fourth period was full of action,
and Powell fought gamely, though
Watson seemed to be the stronger and
had more left than the local boy. The
work of both men was clean. Watson
sent a couple of rights to the ja.w
during this round which appeared to
be the most telling of the contest.
Ad Zotte, the 12S pound Mexican boy
from Stockton, showed up in sensa
tional form by knocking out Marty
Kane, the fighting bellboy, in two
rounds. Zotte had a big lead in the
opening round, as he sent Kane to the
mat, and was giving the bellboy a thor
ough lacing.
Purlng the early part of the second
round, Zotte landed a right to the jaw
which raised Kane off his feet, and the
latter went down* with a thud. He
gamely regained his feet, though he
was staggering around the ring. Ref
eree Foley refused to allow the bout
to continue, as Kane appeared thor
oughly whipped. He gave the contest
to Zotte.
Willie Meehan stopped Young Joe
WalCOtt, a colored middle weight, in
three rounds. Meehan put up his usual
aggressive fight and won all the way.
Young Abe Attell, a feather weight
from Denver, boxed like his namesake,
nnd won easily on points from Freddy
Couture. «Willie Robinson won on
points from Frankie Edwards, after a
slow battle. Ed Kennedy knocked out
Ed Willis, a heavy weight, in four
round?. Jack Herrick won on points
from Stanley Dean. Young Lanum
and Walter Scott boxed a draw. Joe
Ketchel won a decision from Young

First Blow
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
NEW YORK. Jan. 10. —The sporting:
writer of the New York G]obe has this
to say about Joe Rivera:
Honest to'goodness, that Rivers fel
low Is the most vicious looking crea
ture we ever looked upon in the ring.
He acts the part of one who would as
soon cut the other fellow's heart out
right on the spot as to bid him the
time of day. He sends the shivers
down one's back to see him tearing
after the boys who are boxing with
him. helpii>g to get him in shape. If he
doesn't srare Leach Cross, then Leach
isn't going to he scared by anybody.
But Rivera has a whole lot more
than his dangerous look. He is a little
felloiv compared in size to Cross. From
toenail to the last hair in his bead he
is about 5 feet 4 inches. That' 3 about
4 inches shorter than is Cross. But
Rivers has a reach that is a bird. It
measures about t>9 inches.
Rivers is a tearing , , ripping, hard
hitting lightweight. He is built from
the fifth rib up like a middle weight.
The muscles on him stand out like
mountains in the native land of his
forefathers. When he is dressed up
he gives one the impression that he is
round shouldered. But he isn't. It's
just chunks of muscle that stick out.
His legs are those of a bantamweight,
but lie says they are big enough to
carry him about. And on those legs
he moves around like a bantam weight,
too. His footwork is one of the nicest
things he does, outside of his own

nent's features.
En his training lie forgets 'all about
his sparring partner's inferiority to
him in the boxing line, and he Just

General Manager of Course
Refuses to Agree to Rul
ing of Stewards
The last issue of the Racing , Calen
dar, which is the official organ of the
stewards of the New York Jockey club,
contains a report of correspondence be
tween the general manager of the
Laurel racecourse, Henry D. Brown,
and the stewards upon a decision ren
dered by those gentlemen which affects
the treasury or race fund of the Laurel
track, and which Brown saj'3 he will
not accept.
The matter hangs upon its stew
ards' interpretation of the conditions

, order run for at Laurel and won by
the Oneck stable, 11. C. Hallenbeck and
Thomas C. McDowell. The last named,
I who is the Laurel steward when his
(horses are not racing there. Joined
j with the other two owners interested
and protested at the valuation set upon
j the stakes by the clerk of the course,
but later McDowell withdrew his pro
Then the matter came up to three
stewards on duty at the Laurel meet
ing, but they could not act in concert,
and the case next was brought up to
the stewards of the Jockey club. They
decided that the Laurel racecourse must
pay to the two owners larger sums
than Brown thought was in accord
ance with his Intention when he ad
vertised the stakes and invited owners
to make entries. This decision Brown
declined to accept, and, with his letter
placed on file with the secretary, the
matter now stands.
A definite decision must be reached,
horsemen said, before the resumption
of racing in the spring at Jamestown,
because many stakes and races have
conditions based upon the amount of
money won in single races by horses.
In the cases now in dispute, In accord
ance with the decisions of the stew
ards, the horses Yankee Notions and
Coy, owned by the Oneck stable, and
Azyiade, owned by H. C. Hallenbeck,
must in future take up penalties for
having won amounts of money, which
Brown asserts it was not his intention
to award when he drew up the con
Turfmen who have for some weeks
been aware of the disputed decision
fear that if Brown's attitude is per
sisted in the Laurel racecourse will not
be recognized by the Jockey club when
it asks for dates next October.
Another source of friction which is
causing some discussion by the stew
ards is the fact that the Havre de Grace
management has asked for dates from
April 6 to 26 next, and the application
has been held over by the Jockey club
stewards, as some of those dates were
in 1912 used by the Jamestown track,
and its manager some time ago asked
for spring dates which would not be
claimed by the Maryland Jockey club.
Experienced turfmen say that a har
monious arrangement is possible where
by Jamestown, Pimlico and Havre de
Grace can all be granted dates in April
and May, which would satisfy all three
of the managements. Laurel's charter
limits it to the month of October, so it
would not be considered in the spring.

Indiana Auto Manufacturers
Will Start for San Fran
cisco in July
Ford Cuts His Visit in This
City Short —Notes
for Motorists
The proposed tour of the Indiana
Automobile Manufacturers' association
from Indianapolis to San Francisco Is
not by any means going: to ne an idle
dream. The Hoosier state boosters are
alrpady actively engaged in making the
preliminary arrangements for the
cross country journey, and according
to the reports the tour gives every
promise of attracting betwen "i and 50
entries. The tentative date for the
start to California has bpen fixed for
July I, and from present Indications
the central route is the,one that will
be tak^n.
Details of the proposed coast journey
were made puWli- in Chicago yesterday
by H. C. Bradfield of the Cole Motor
Car company. The plan of the contem
plated tour as outlined by Bradfield in
his announcement is as follows:
"Our expedition will be the boldest
trip ever attempted. It will not be a
contest, but will be patterned after
the two events which the Indiana man
ufacturers ran in 1911 and 1912, and
will be a trip promoted for the pur
pose of showing the products of Indi
ana concerns. Only the Hoosler makes
are eligible.
"We purpose to make our getaway
from Indianapolis July 1. although the
only points which are certain to be a
part of our itinerary are St. Loots,
Kansas City, Denver, Salt Lake City.
San Francisco and Los Angeles. Be
tween these points there are choices
of direction which are fc»eing investi
gated. There will be few rules to
govern the tourists. Two divisions will
be maintained—one for pleasure cars
and the other for motor trucks.
"From Indianapolie to Kansas City
the tourists will sleep in hotels. After
that the nights will be passed in or
ganized open camps with the exception
of the stops in Denver and Salt Lake
"The party will probably remain in
San Francisco for three or four days
and then tour southward to Los An
geles. It has been suggested that we
ship our cars from Los Angeles to
Portland by boat, a visit to the great
northwest being contemplated."
