Miller and Smith Ready to
Punch Each Other on
Friday Night
NEW TORK, Oct. 28.—0n account of
the Ritchie-Cross bout, which was
scheduled to be held at Madison Square
garden tomorrow night, being cud-
di nly postponed*till November 10, con
, ,s;derable confusion was occasioned in
* local boxing circles. Because of the
scheduled leader boat most of the
other clubs did not arrange star bouts
for this week. The postponement of
the big garden event started the other
boxing promoters scurrying around to
arrange "rush" cards.
The Atlantic Garden Athletic club
is on deck with a 10 round bout be
tween Gunboat Smith and Charley
Miller, the California heavy weights.
The native sons will crawl through
the ropes at the Bowery' club on Fri
day night. To the lovers of real old
fashioned slugfests the bout should be
a treat.
Through his aggressive battling in
hia bout with Al Palaer at the St.
Nicholas rink. Miller won a warm
, spot in the hearts of local lovers of
fisticuffs). The big Greek from the
sunset slope of the Rockies did not
show any great knowledge of the
manly art. Hia marksmanship was
poor and his punch did not appear
particularly strong.
Hia willingness to fight and fight
at .top speed all of ths way took with
the, fans, however. • Miller never
backed up and never stopped trying
to "get" his opponent. It doesn't
seem probable that .Smith will at
tempt any stalling in the coming cn
countei. "Gunboat" Is anxious to re
habilitate himself with local fans for
his poor showing in his bout with
Carl Morris. >
Many of the fans thought Smith
showed the white feather in the re
cent Garden affair. Jim Buckley's
protege knocked out Tony Ross in
Boston last week and will try to
hand Miller a dreamland pass on Fri
day night.

DEATH OF CHRISTY MATHEWSON
Writmn for IMS
LEE W. NELSON
His beard was long and flowing as he stepped into the box;
His cap was pulled down o'er his eyes and hid his hoary locks;
The wrinkles of full sixty years set plain upon his brow-
He looked to be the ling'ring leaf upon a withered bough.
Down beside him on the grass he laid a single crutch,
And grasped the horsehide baseball in a feeble, weak'ning clutch.
For nine full innings now he pitched, this old and weary man,
He made the sluggers pop 'em up and often made 'em fan.
And when the game was over and this pitcher gray had won,
The other team had been shut out, they hadn't scored a run.
But when the bleacherites had gone and grandstand fans had fled,
The pitcher flopped down in the box, and there they found him—
dead!
To discover who this phenom was I searched the sporting page.
And found, "Chris Mathewson drops dead at hopelessly old age!"
You See, It's This Wav
ED. W. SMITH
WiiK.X two ringaters wbo de
pend largely upon their right
hand punches to win them
their ba>tles get together there
usually is something well out of
the ordfnary cut loose. Two
right banders must necessarily
try to "beat each other to lt"
with the right and thus create a
lot of excitement. This is ex
actly what happened when
George Chip, the Scranton middle
weight, met Frank Klaus of
Pittsburg the other night in a
Pittsburg. ring. Klaus was
knocked cold as a wedge in the
sixth round because Chip "hap
pened" to be the man who got
there first with a terrific right
swing. It's not often that one
tan call a punch lucky, because
in the very nature of things
every punch that is let fly cer
tainly is meant for some vulner
able point on an opponent's
fighting front. Therefore It can
hardly be called lucky when such
a punch lands unless it happens
that the man who lands It is
groggy at the time and doesn't
know what he's doing.
* * *
IT UAS\T luefc that enabled
Chip to knock Klaus out either,
according: to Jimmy Dime,
Chip's manager, but was a clean
cut victory In which the winner
constantly tried the trick that he
finally succeeded in pulling off
In the final round of the affair.
There was a trick to it and a
quick one that completely frus
trated any move that Klaus might
have made to save himself. It
was a heavy right swing to the
mid xectlon, followed by a swift
left (lip to the chin that put
Klau* down and out for the first
tine in his long and honorable
career.
SO we'll have to score one
more notable achievement for
that good old left punch as
against the right hand driva. Ac
cording to Dime, it waa some
fjuick thinking that brought home
the scads for the Scranton man.
They had been trying heavily
with their rights for several
rounds, each anxious to get home
with this member. Tha fight
ing had been very close up to
the sixth round. Jn that period
they hsd been at lt hammer and
tongs for about a minute, when
Klaus advanced rapidly with his
head down and swinging his
right. Chip stepped close, Ist go
of a powerful right uppercut that
landed Just over Frank's belt.
It straightened the German In a
flash and he dropped his hands
for Just an Instant. Already Chip
was hooking his left to the spot
•where he figured Klaus' chin
would be when he stood upright.
THE calculation couldn't have
been better had it been made
with the finest mathematical
instruments. The left crashed
m
Call's Eastern Fight Expert
against that prominent chin of
the Plttsburger and down he went
for a count of nine. He helped
himself to his feet with the aid of
the ropes, but he was so groggy
that, as he attempted to move
out of range of Chip's rush, he
fell again and took another
count. Then, as he arose, he ran
plumb Into another right cross on
the chin and fell, completely out.
The closing punch was a right,
but the one that did the real busi
ness was the old reliable left
hook.
* * #
AT least six times during: the
battle the men landed right
punches simultaneously and
both were staggered heavily. The
Pittsburg papers call it the great
est go they've had there In years
and are wild to see the men re
matched. Klaus entered the ring
with the greatest confidence, but
wan in great shape. He admitted
afterward that he never looked
for such a happening, although
conceding freely that he knew
Chip to be a heart walloper.
# * ♦
DIME, wk* once was a star
lightweight boxer and a foot
racer of hlg;h speed, thinks
that perhaps the beating Eddie
McGoorty gave Klaus in Milwau
kee may have had something to
do with his weakened condition
in the sixth round at Pittsburg
and concedes that the Oshkosh
man is about the only one that
stands in tha way of the middle
weight title right now. He
doesn't think so highly of Jack
Dillon of Indianapolis, inasmuch
as Klaus already has beaten Dil
lon in a 20 round engagement. He
thinks that Jimmy Clabby also
is entitled to a look-in.
MICH fortune appear, to be
following tha footsteps of
the Newcastle manager, who
has a big string of fighters on
liis staff and all of them pretty
good, too. Dime brought Patsy
Brannigan to Racine for the con
test there with Kid Majionay Fri
day night and jumped right back
to Pittsburg In order to second
Dan Dalley, his big whits hope.
In his winning battle against Al
Palzer" Saturday night. Last
night he was in Brooklyn with
another of hia stars.
* # #
AMI still they are bobbing up
day by day. The latest whits
hope to make a bid for fame
is a man named Jack Moran of
this city, discovered and now be
ing developed by Charley Burns,
formerly of Cincinnati and once
known as the. original "rough
house" among the fighters of the
welter weight division. Moran is
working out daily at the Lewis
gymnasium and is regarded by
many as likely io he a factor
among the big ones some day. He
is only 19 years old, stands an
inch over six feet and weighs 175
pounds now, but getting blggar,

JOHNSON IS
STEADIEST
PITCHER
Great Washington Heaver
Taken Out of Box But
Once During Season
' Walter Johnson not only twirled
more victories last season than any
other American league pitcher, but he
pitched more complete games than
any one else. The Chalmers car win
ner went the route 29 times, only be
ing knocked off the rubber once. An
other hard worker was Jim Scott of
the Chicago White Sox. "Death Val
ley Jim" labored in 26 complete
games, while his teammate, Reb Rus
sell, did almost as well, figuring in 25.
George Baumgardner of the Browns
pitched 24 full contests, Yean Gregg
and Fred Falkenberg of the Naps
each 23, George Dauss and Jean Du
buc ot the Tigers each 21, and Ray
Collins of the Red Sox and Roy
Mitchell of the Browns each 20.
Of the champion White Elephants,
Eddie Plank pitched more full games
than any of his teaVimates. The "Get
tysburg Guide" was in 18, while.
"Chief" Bender was only in 16. The
Indian was often used by Mack as a
rescuer, none of Mack's young pitch
ers, except Shawkey, showing much
cleverness at being able to go the dis
tance.
MACK SWITCHES OFTEN
Mack changed pitchers oftener than
any other American league leader.
The Athletic slabmen twirled only 67
complete games, the Brown's gunners
turned In 104 full contests. The num
ber of complete games pitched by the
other hurling staffs was as follows:
By New York, 76; by Boston, Tfi; by
Washington, 78; by Chicago, 84; by
Detroit, 86, and by Cleveland, 96.
All told there were just 71 gun
ners who were able to twirl complete
games last year, the men who pitched
10 or more full contests being as fol

OUTLOOK IS
BLUE FOR
M'GOORTY
Wisconsin Commission Likely
to Bar Him for Running
Out on Match
By E. J. GEIGER
CHICAGO, Oct. 28.—Eddie Mc-
Goorty, Oshkosh middle weight, who
shares with Jimmy Clabby the right
to the middle weight crown, may
never don another glove in Wiscon
sin, and for that may be barred from
participating in any of the rings
where boxing is legal. Steps were
taken today to have the middle
weight barred because of his failure
to go through with his November
match In Milwaukee with Jack Dil
lon after he had accepted terms and
agreed to the meeting.
The Wisconsin state boxing com
mission has the case in hand and
will decide it at the next meeting of
that body. Should Eddie be at fault
he will be barred from Badger rings

Konetchy, Declares
Official of Giants
OTTUItWA, la,, Oct. 28.—President
Hempstead and Scout Kinsella of the
New York Nationals, stated today
that there was nothing to the report
that First Baseman Konetchy of St.
Louis would become the property of
the New York club in exchange for
any New York player. A letter was
produced to show that New York was'
not ready to make a trade.
and a request will be sent' to other
states where boxing ls handled by a
commission asking that they bar him.
Recently Tom Andrews of Milwau
kee signed Dillon, and then negoti
ated with McGoorty's manager.
Tommy Walsh. All was set for the
occasion until two days ago, when
Eddie sent word that, besides the 30
per cent offered by the club, he must
have a guarantee of $1,750. The club
balked and Eddie canceled the match.
It is believed that the Indianapolis
promoters had something to do with
the change of mind. Incidentally, the
mlxup cost Walsh his job, for Eddie
declares he never authorized the mak
ing of the match.
Milwaukee has decided to lift the
ban on heavy weights, and November
10 is likely to see Carl Morris and
Jess Willard in action. Tom Jones
practically closed negotiations for
that date, and the promoter is now In
communication with Morris. Jones
declares he still is manager of Wol
gast and that Ad won't fight for sev
eral month 6.

Taylor Sells Half
Interest in Famous
Boston Red Sox Club
BOSTON, Oct. 28. —Half ownership
in the Boston Red Sox club will pass
Into new hands within a few days or
the prospective new stock holders
may come in under certain conditions
with less than half of the 1,000 shares.
Negotiations for the sale of part of
the club have been going on for over
a month.
Attorney Charles If. Hill, who has
already acted several times as agent
in the sale of minor league fran
chises, is believed to represent the
prospective new owners of stock in
the Boston club, whose names are
withheld for the time being.
Mr. Hill when seen today would
neither affirm nor deny he was up to
his tricks again. It is known here
that General Taylor, one of the large
stock holders of the club "is desirous
of limiting his investment in base
ball. As' the Taylors hold 50 shares
of the common stock of the Red Sox
,club, which stock carries the voting
power, it is safe to assume that the
Taylor end has been the object of At
torney Hill's diplomacy.
