CUBBY IS JH FINE SHAPE Malachy Hogan, the Chicago Sport ing Writer, Will Referee the Bout. Probably the greatest boxing con test that has .ever been seen in this Princepal in West city will be pulled off in Mika's hall, 107 One Hundred and Fifty-fifth street, I tomorrow evening at 8:15 sharp. j The Chicago Kecord-Herald's writer on pugilism, Malachy Hogan, will ref eree the main bout, which will be be tween Jimmy Clabby, the Hammond pugilist, and Dick Fitzpatrick of Chi cago. One could not followthe ring career of Jimmy Clabby of this city without taking a great deal of pride in his per formances. He began his athletic ca reer as a member of the Joe Long Jun ior baseball team of Hammond and still plays on the team. His successes have been almost con tinuous since he left Hammond for Milwaukee, where he was taken up by the fight fans and taught the game. Gardner Fistht the Biggest. Probably his greatest fights were the two he had with Jimmy Gardner. In one, Gardner was given the decision against the protest of the fight fans, and in another Clabby was given a draw with this shifty boxer. Dick Fitzpatrick is a boxer who is worthy of Clabby's best efforts. It is expected that the Hammond man will have to use his best tricks and his hardest punches in order to put away the Chicago fighter. For this reason the fight tomorrow night will be of great interest to local fans and also to the entire pugilistic world. It is already known that Dick Fitzpatrick's brother has arranged for a special train over the Lake Shore railroad to bring the f.ght fans to Hammond. The management announces that the hall will be open at 7:30 and the bouts will begin at 8:15. Both of the pre liminaries are good. Kid Lavin of South Chicago will meet Jack Tlerney of Chicago In one of the prelims, and' Billy Sullivan, who Is well liked here, will meet Kid Murphy. It Is expected that all of the lights, flickering and brightly burning, in the pugilistic world will be in the city to morrow night to see the big show and it is expected that standing room will be at a premium before the prelimi naries begin.

STILL WANTS NELSON BOUT Says That "Battler" Will Have to Agree to a Higher Pound age, However. Packie McFarland can no longer make the lightweight limit of 133 pounds ringside. This was admitted by Manager Harry Gilmore Jr., who re turned yesterday from the Pacific coast. "I have been keeping this quiet for nearly a year," said Gilmore yesterday, "and, although Packie is still willing to make 133 pounds early in the day, he will never box again at that weight Hammond Fight v vs.. JIMMY CLABBY. ringside. He 'probably scales 138 or 140 pounds ringside. "I don't intend to move him up into the welter class, however. I hear that over In England there is a lot of talk about making the lightweight limit 135 pounds. This would suit us down to the ground. "This Is the real reason for the Welsh bout falling through. Welsh is afraid of McFarland and learned in some way that Packie couldn't make 133 ringside and be strong. He has kept insisting on that weight ever since. We found there was no use In trying to get him into a match, so we called the deal off. "We intend to stay here for about a week and then expect to go east again and take on Tommy Murphy. We have also been offered a bout with Driscoll and would like to take on White. Driscoll, I believe, would be willing to move up a few pounds in weight. Stor ies about McFarland going to England are not correct, for we can make as much money over here. "Because Packie does not want the ringside. weight any more does not in dicate that he Is a welter-weight. He has been with me three years and has only picked up two pounds In that time. We still want the bout with Nel son if he will make a higher weight."

Hi DR1SGQLL GIVE A POUriD EACH Attell Fights Briton Friday in New Work Weight, 125 at 6 o'Clock. New York, Feb. 16. After thre hours of wrangling yesterday after noon Abe Attell, champion feather weight of the world, and Jem Driscoll. champion feather-weight of England, were matched to meet in a ten round contest at the National Athletic club on Friday night. The men agreed to weigh 125 pounds at 6 o'clock or to forfeit $500. Driscoll held out for 126 pounds at 6 o'clock and Attell for 124 pounds at 6 o'clock, but they were finally forced to compromise. Attell said afterward he did not care much what the English man weighed, but he wanted him to get on the scales and let the public know his weight. Attell said he would enter the ring under 122 pounds. The battle will be an international contest for the championship title, ac cording,, to the English weights, the first to be held in New York in many years. Unless there is a knockout, however, the championship will not be decided, as the National Sporting club does not permit its referee to give a decision. Although 122 pourds is the feather weight limit in America, in England 126 pounds is the limit, and it was at that weight that Driscoll" won his present title. German Proverb.
