(Special Uispat'h to The Cnll'i
BOSTON, Feb. 14.—Jim Thorpe of the Carlisle Indian school,

today. He is entered in the all round events at the professional meet
ing in Mechanics' building tomorrow night.
He will appear in the 40 yard dash, 45 yard high hurdles, running
high jump, 16 pound shotput and 440 yard run. His opponents will be

Somerville, Jack Keliher Smith pi Lynn, and possibly Jack McDonald,

fessional athlete.
The Indian, who says it will be his last appearance as an all round
athlete, will endeavor to make a new professional record in the events.

Speedy Bout Furnished by
Lightweights — Heavy
Weight Go a Joke
Tommy McFarland of this city and
Herb White of Stockton went four fast
rounds to a draw at the Pavilion rink
last evening. The battle was a bitter
onp and both men threw science to the
winds. There was a little too much
holding , on to suit the fans, but at
that the pace was fast all the time, and
many good solid wallops were landed
by each man.
The first round was rather a tame
one, as the boys were feeling each
other out. McFarland had a slight
advantage, but no damage was done.
He also had a slight lead in the
second, and in the third he slipped
down and through the ropes, and his
opponent was right after him. The
fourth was even, so Referee Eddie
Hanlon called the affair a draw.
The go between Porky Flynn ana
Charley Horn, the heavy weights, was
a joke. Flynn could have knocked
his man out at any time, but he seemed
to take pity on the helpless lad, and re
frained from hitting him. Flynn seems
to have class, but always stacks up
against a man who can not fight. Harry
Foley referred that bout, but called it a
draw. It should have been called no

Pitchers' Box at Local Park
Is Six Inches Too Far
Away From the
Home Plate
Jack Gilligan, the erratic Sacra
mento pitcher, became a Seal yesterday
afternoon when Cal Ewing purchased
him outright from the up country club.
The consideration was not nifcde pub
lic, but it is understood that Ewing
was forced to give up quite a chunk,
for Manager Wolverton and President
Atkin of the Senators wanted to trade
Gilligran for either Corhan or Wuffii,
two of the Seal stars.
After the deal had been put through
Gllligan was moie disappointed than
pleased. He announced that he wanted
to go east and would endeavor to bring
about some sort of a deal that would
land him on the other Eide of the
"California does not seem to agree
with m&- wife's health," announced Gil
ligan. "and I am anxious to go east
again. I can't do myself justice here."
This is not the right sort of spirit
for a ball player to show, and unless
Gilligan experiences a change of senti
ment very shortly the chances are that
Ewing will dispose of him to some
eastern or middle western club. He
can not affoni to have a pitcher on his
staff who will get into the game and
show the fighting disposition.
The big pitcher came to Portland
last season with a grreat reputation.
But he could not get along with the
umpires nor MAnager McCredie, so he
was traded to Hacramen.to. He fared
little better there, and announced that
he would not pitch for the capital city
nine again.
The startling discovery that the
pitcher's box at Recreation park is six
inches farther away from the plate
than the rules allow was made yes
terday afternoon when workmen start
ed to put in a new box. According
to the rules, the pitcher must stand 60
feet 6 inches , from the batter, but those
who have heaved at the local park in
the past have stood 61 feet away.
According to this, all the teams who
lost games on the local lot since it
was opened up have a license to pro
test. But, of course, there will be no
protests filed. They would not avail
anything in the first place, and in the
second place the fans would only laugh
at such action. But, .nevertheless, the
box is , too far away to conform with
the rules and it wust be changed.
Workmen are now engaged in put
ting- in a new rubber and also a new
heme plate. The constant spiking of
these stations by the pitchers and the
base runners save worn them out. But
for the fact that new material was
needed,\ the oham-es are that nobody
ever would have discovered that the
San Francisco ball club was for years
violating one of the niQst ancient rule*
of the diamond.
Little Wagner, the Seals'' second
baseman, will be there when the train
ing btll rings. He wrote Ewing yes
terday from his home at York, Pa.,
saying that he intends to take the
White Sox special out of Chicago and
that the contract sent to him was en
tirely satisfactory.
But Wagner did not say a word
about his physical condition. Several
weeks ago he wrote that he had in
jured his ankle and probably would
be unable to report. Ewing - was very
mitch worried in. the meantime and
he is still a bit worried because Wag
ner did not say in his latest letter
whether or not he has recovered.

that things are breaking right for
him and that he will join the others

February 25. Del recently returned
from his old home in Illinois and is
the guest of his brother, Ivan, in the
southern city.
Southpaw Jesse Baker is still hold
ing out and it is barely possible that
he will not wear a Seal uniform this
season. It became known yesterday
that Baker was asked to stand for a
cut in his salary. He was a very ex
pensive experiment on the local lineup
last season, so Kwing decided to do
the shaving act till such time at least
that Baker can show him some win

Union Pacific Pays $75 Per
Share for Securities It
Will Soon Offer
(Special Dlspatrh to The Call)
NEW YORK, Feb, 14.—The Southern
Pacific stock underwriting syndicate
has been considerably oversubscribed,
says the Wall Street Journal, and con
sists of over 500 participants, distrib
uted throughout the United States
and all Europe.
The combined European syndicate
amounts to about $50,000,000, or 40 per
cent of the whole.
Union Pacific paid, on the average,
$75 a share, or $95,000,000, for the
Southern Pacific stock it is about to
sell at par. The profit on the invest
ment which E. H. Harriman made in
Southern Pacific for the Union Pacific,
aside from the enormous advantage of
control of the latter's central outlet
to the Pacific during the last 12 years,
is $31,650,000.
In August, 1909, a short yme before
Harriman's death, Southern Pacific
stock sold at its highest price on rec
ord, 139 %, and it finished that year
around 130.
Harriman hoped that Southern Pa
cific would prove in time to be worth
in one way or another not less than
$200 a share, or the equivalent of $80
to $120 per share of Union Pacific (ac
cording as Union Pacific preferred was
or was not included). As it is Union
Pacific stock holders will receive and
hold for appreciation if they wish one
quarter of a, share of Southern Pacific
for every share of Union Pacific they

and was occasionally very violent. ll
declined to help pull a sledge and hit
