Little Ad About Ready to Tackle the Sturdy
Harlem Lad on Washington's Birthday
For $9,000 Guarantee
Ad Wolgast has about made up his mind to change his mind and do battle
*ith Harlem Tommy Murphy in this city on the afternoon of Washington's
birthday. After a desperate hand to hand combat with the former champion
over the long distance telephone to Portland last evening, Promoter Jim
Coffroth was about readj/to announce that he had induced the former light
weight champion to take Joe Mandot's place against the Harlemite. A later
dispatch from Portland said that Wolgast had practically accepted Coffroth's
The Portland advices say that Wolgast is to get $9,000 for his end. A
few days ago he asked for $10,000 after Coffroth had offered him $6,500. The
local promoter is not in the habit of taking the general public into his con
fidence when it comes to big financial deals in the ring, but Wolgast was quick i
to announce that $9,000 was his price.
The fans may rest assured that they will witness a great battle if Murphy
and Wolgast come together, and, judging from all that has been said and done.
j|'* looks as though they will. This is the encounter which the whole country
Jias been looking forward to ever since Wolgast lost his title to Willie Ritchie
and Murphy so decisively stopped Frankie Burns.
Murphy is in Chicago awaiting orders to leave for the coast, and H is j
likely indeed that he will be on his way to this city some time today. In the
meantime Wolgast will pack up his duds and shake the mud of Portland from
his feet as quickly as possible, for he will need all the time he can get in
order to fit himself for a battle with the fighting harp from little old New York.
Before getting a line on Wolgast Coffroth spent a small sized fortune in
■wiring fighters from different parts of the country, and also in paying for
collect telegrams from others who sought to fill in for Mandot. He had about
given up all hope till yesterday morning, when he lay in bed thinking it over.
Suddenly an idea flashed through his mind. He grabbed the telephone
and asked the operator to get WolgasJ at the Imperial hotel in Portland.
Five minutes later Promoter and fighter were in communication.
"I will give you to come down here and fieht Murphy," said Coffroth.
"Well, I'm afraid I won't have time to get ready." replied Wolgast.
"You know that you never work more than six days for any fight, co
why do you want two weeks for this one? Come down here and fight.
"I will wire Tom Jones in Chicago and find out what he thinks about it.
I will wire you later on. Good by."
Coffroth did not hear any more from the sturdy little former champion,
tut later dispatches from Portland announced that Wolgast had made up hia
mind to accept the offer, and that he was busy getting ready to make the trip
to this city and start work at his favorite place out on the ocean beach.
Barring a match between Ritchie and Wolgast, or Ritchie and McFarland
or Murphy, the Wolgast-Murphy affair looks to be the livest lightweight at
traction on the cards today. There is no doubt that Wolgast will rule a
favorite over the Harlem lad, but still there are thousands- of fans hefe in San
Francisco who really believe that Tommy will get away with Ad.
They fought six rounds back in Pittsburg shortly before Wolgast won the
lightweight championship, and although it was a no decision affair, still the
majority of the fans thought Murphy won. That contest was regarded as one
of the greatest ever staged in the Smoky City, and ever since Murphy has been
clamoring for a chance to get at the Michigan lad again.
"The terms suit us all right," said Jim Buckley, manager of Murphy, last
night. "Tommy will fight any of them. He never sidestepped an opponent
yet. He will leave Chicago tomorrow and will be here on the job to get ready
for Wolgast. I hope that he is on the short end. He always fights better
when they make the other lellow the favorite, and, besides, we like to get odds
for our money."
That Mandot deliberately ran out is the opinion of Coffroth. He has come
to the conclusion that the New Orleans boy finally made up his mind that
Murphy was a bit too tough for him and that he would use the sick stall in
order to get out of* the match. Coffroth may congratulate himself if he is
successful in getting Wolgast, even if he does cost more money
Beaten by McFarland He flakes It a Draw
After being practically out in the
first round of his contest with Tommy
McFarland at PavT'on link last night,
lied WatFon weathered two stormy
rounds and then got his bearings and
fought rings around get
ting an even break from Referee Eddie
Hanlon. The decision was a fair one,
but it was mighty lucky for McFar
land that the *ont*at was not of longer
duration, as Watson was fighting his
way to victory when th-e r>o'it ter
minated, while MiFarland was fast
wilting under the- slashing blows that
Watgon was administering to him.
It was a whirlwind battle and Wat
j»on waa ih«i star performs to
Ms game exhibition. It looked as
though he were destined to ture defeat
in the opening round, as McFarland
landed a heavy right to the body which
was followed by a sweeping left to the
jaw that sent Watson staggering half
way across the ring. He finally went
down in a heap near his own corner.
Watson was in very bad shape and
it locked doubtful that be would be
able to get up. However, he got up
before the count, and then McFarland
turned loose his batteries on his groggy
opponent. Watson was in his own
cerner with his arms wrapped around
his head trying to stave off d. knock
out. He was not fighting back. His
sole purpose was to stave off a knock
McFariand was handing out every
thing he had, but Watson held his
McFarland was tiring from his
«ii efforts. The bell sounded and
Watson staggered to his corner.
The second round was slow. Wat
son had not recovered entirely from
the opening session and was fighting
cautiously. McFarland landed hard
blows to the stomach, which mad* Red
wince but he took them all. McFar
land seemed to light faster than usual.
Near the end of the round both boys
engaged in a slugging bee which Mc-
Farland had a bit the best of. There
wa« not a great deal of fighting in
this round, but what honors were
gained belonged to McFarland.
Watson started to regain the ground
he had lost in the opening two sessions
and answered the gong in the third
with plenty of tight left in him. lie
tore loose some hard body blows which
had telling effect. McFarland ran into
a hard right which Bent him staggering
back. Watson followed this advantage
with' a hard right to the stomach and
McFarland complained to the referee.
Watson was outfighting McFarland at
the bell.
Watson made the flght in the fourth
and was beating McFarland to the
punch. The latter held on a great deal,
but in the clinches Watson shoved in
both hands to the stomach and these
blows were causing McFarland to slow
u p. Watson was always the aggressor.
The ilphting was fast and the crowd
was in a constant uproar. It was the
whirlwind finish in the last two rounds
that gave Watson an even break after
a hard uphill climb. The decision of
Referee Hanlon appeared to satisfy the
Johnny O'Leary's hard fighting in the
fourth round gave him an even break
■*lth Roy Moore, who surprised all by
iSuiaghtlng the northwestern boy in the
iirst two rounds. O'Leary did not seem
to tight in hie usual good form and was (
not going right until the fourth session.
In the concluding round lie was the
aggressor and landed three hard rights
'that staggered Moore. It was O'Leary's
round by a good margin. In the *irst
two sessions Moore appeared to have
the best of it. as he was boxing as well
as O'Leary and outfighting him in the
clinches. Frank Schuler refereed this
contest and his decision for a draw
seemed to be fair, though Moore had a
slight edge.
Joe Murray of Sacramento knocked
out Joe Greggains in a round. The up
country fighter proved too strong and
rugged for the local welter weight.
Murray landed several stinging left
handed hooks which sent Greggains
down for tho count.
Ray Campbell was given the decision
over Montana Kid by Referee Frank
Schuler. There was considerable clinch
ing throughout the b«ut. Campbell had
the best of the first three rounds, while
the Montana Kid made his beet show
ins in the fourth round and had the
Antohe La Grave outfought Romeo
Hagen and was given the decision. Kid
Bertelsen and Eddie Miller boxed a
draw. Miller appeared to have a lead
on points, but Referee Schuler thought
it was even.
Pete Blake knocked out Youngf
Lanum in a round. The bout between
Charley White and Young Ketchel was
declared a draw, but White appeared
to have a clear lead on points. Soldier
Murphy outboxed Red Murphy Un four
rounds. Tom Nickola knocked out
Young Joe Walcott In two rounds.
The Royal club, which will stage the
next show at Pavilion rink, hae
matched Herb White, the Stockton
lightweight, with Tommy McFarland in

key, the conqueror of Charles Grande,
the local middle weight, and Otto Berg
of Astoria will be the next card to be

Charles T\ Grennan of the Palm Athletic
cl-üb. The bout will be for 20 rounds
and will be for the middle weight cham
pionship of the Pacific coast.

night of March 5, when the scheduled
bout will be held.

Sacramento Magnate Bids
Fair to Produce a League
Leading Com
Jack Atkin, the financial man behind
the Sacramento club, is in the lime
light these dayg as a result of his
endeavors to grt a winning: team. At
kin has secured so many promising
ball players that the critics are now
proclaiming the Senators as contenders
for the 1913 pennant.
It is hoped that the new boss of
the Senatorial crew lands a winner, as
he is a popular fellow, as well as
being game. The fane of Sacra
mento can depend upon Atkin to go
for his bankroll to land the town a
winning team.
Harry Wolverton, who will lead the
Senators, is another favorite with the
fans along the coast, and with a com
bination like Atkin and Wolverton and
a hustling team, the Senators are sure
to be great favorites. The Senators
look good on paper and it is to be
hop«<i that they live up to their figures.
* * *
Bill McCorry. the Seals , hustling lit
tle pitcher, is satisfied with his con- j
tract, which the local club received
yesterday. Some days ago BilJ wrote
to the management that he was satis
fied with the terms offered him, but he
did not send back his contract. He said
that he would sign it on his arrival
The local management was not afraid
that Bill would change his mind, but
is contented now that he has cent
it in. With good assitance, McCorry
should prove a winner this season.
McCorry will probably be a passenger
on the Chicago White Sox team special
when it comes west. He is now at
his home at Waverly, N. Y.
# * *
The Seals' holdout list remains in
tact. Baker, Wuffli and Cadreau are
battling for more money and Ish and
Ewing are holding their own at the
other end of the line.
Delhi has not signed the contract
offered him, but he has written the
local management asking them not
to consider him a member of the
holdout list. Flame figures that his
persuasive powers and by pitching a
few good games he can get Ewing to
his way of thinking about what he
wants in the salary line. Delhi seems
to be going about what he is seeking
in the right way.

J. Cal Ewing and President A3 C.
Baum have departed on a duck hunting
trip to the marshes in the country
around Stockton. They afe expected

It looks- as though the Seals would

training at Boyes springs. During the
time that the White Sox are here one

Harry Walton, secretary of the Seals,
said something yesterday afternoon at
the ball park when he declared that he
would dispose of a -player sooner than
cut his salary.
"When it is.necessary to cut a play

time to dispense with his services.

CHICAGO, Feb. 7.—Del Howard, the
slugging Sati Francisco player, was en
gaged to act as scout for the Cubs
before he started for the Pacific coast
last night. Prestdent Murphy and Man
ager Kvers engaged Howard's services

McCarty's 'Color Line' Overlooked for Gold
Offer Made to Fight Negro for $30,000
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 7.—Luther McCarty, who claims to be the
white heavy weight champion, will fight Jack Johnson at the Circle
de Paree, in Paris, if the club will guarantee McCarty $30,CC0 or give
him the privilege of 30 per cent of the gate. This statement was made
by Billy McCarney, the Philadelphia boy, who is managing McCarty,
when the entire training camp arrived hefe this morning. McCarney
says he believes that McCarty can lick Johnson without half trying and
that he has given up the idea of drawing the color line for two years, as
he had announced previously.

fullbacks; Burns, Price and Wyant,
halfbacks; Pellas, B. Erb, A. Erb, Hig
gins and Pratt, forwards.
Sullivan Opposes Greater
Hammer Weight
While the Intercollegiate Athletic
association la eeriouely thinking of
changing the hammer event from the
universal weight of 16 pounds to one of
21 pounds, with the corresponding,
shortening oX the handle from four to
three feet. James E. Sullivan, the A.
A. U. secretary, is bitterly opposed to
any such move.
"If the Intercollegiate Athletic asso
ciation has no other idea In connection
with the changing of this event than
the safeguarding of "spectators," cays
Sullivan, "it would do well to abolish
the game altogether and place in its
list of it a discus or '56' event.
"It has been ehown that the hammer
throwing event can be made absolutely
safe to spectators by the use of such a
eagre as has been employed for several
years at Travere island, where the best
hammer throwers in the world have
contested with no semblance of acci
dent to any one occurring.
"It has taken 10 years to place ham
mer throwing as an event in which
Americans lead the world, and the wire
Randle with the double grip helps to
form a combination which warrants the
hammer being thrown farther and with
a greater degree of accuracy (that is,
within a given radius) than under the
old. time scheme of the whipcord
handle, which was so easily broken.
"If Americans generally were to give
over the nerw accepted style of hammer
throwing and take on the proposed
scheme of throwing a 21 pound imple
ment they wouJd find themaelvee at a
distinct disadvantage when it came to
the next Olympic gamee in Berlin In
1916. when a 16 pound hammer will be
thrown, as it war at Stockholm and
previous Olympic sports. All the for
eign athletes having come to view the
present style as the accepted one will
continue to perfect themselves in the
art, and will probably be«throwing the
hammer which will be named for tbe
Olympics 170 feet, while Americana, if
a 21 pound hammer is taken up, will be
so handicapped as to be almost unable
to use the Olympic hammer.'
Races Also Will Be Held on
July 4 and on Sep
tember 9

The California section of the Am«rl
j can Power Boat association yesterday
