Among other things Mr. Sullivan aid: "The Olympic club and the Pacific association of the A. A. V. await the coming of the athletic stars of tho world. The Olympic club will leave no stone unturned to have a cham pionship team in the field. "Before leaving San Francisco Pres ident Ilumpries informed me that tho club had secured a two-year lease on the ball park in the heart of the city, in which it will build a quarter-mile running track and athletic tidd where the athletes of the world can -train when they are in the Golden Gate city in 10 lo. "I predict that the total number of entries received will be between 8.000 and 10,000. All of these blue ribbon events of tho athletic world have been assigned to the exposition and there is no doubt that the attractions will bring to ,an Francisco teams from each and every country in the world that is athletic, and the world will witness contest that will be hard ly second to the Olympic games."

Jack Johnson, despite the reports to the contrary, is keeping himself in fair ly good condition and will be at his best when he enters the ring to de fend his title against Frank Moran. Such was the statement of a man well known to the boxing world who re turned from Paris a few days ago and who, while in the French capital found time to watch tho neero cham pion indulge in some light work. Johnson is by no means r-ady to step into the arena now, but he is by no means in the poor condition that friends of Moran would have it be lieved.

Vrvd Clarke thinks that if I pick the Pirates to win the National league pennant the Pirates will bo jinxed down into the second division. There fore, we must be content to say that the Pirates look to be strong contend ers. Clarke, by making the most spec tacular trade of recent baseball his tory, has cleaned his team of clash ing elements, and he has in the field a fierce hitting infield; a pitching staff that docs not seem as strong on paper as that of last spring, but is now a working staff; a catching :-taff above major league average, and an experi mental outfield. I,et us examine the infield, th real strength of the team. Kon'tohy at first was for years rated among the lest, and this season, away from tho Cards, and inspired with new ambi tion, he probably will come into his own.

The ambition of Wag ner's life is to quit while at the climax of his career. He reported this spring lighter and better than in three sea sons. Then there is Mike Mowrey at third. For ten years Mike has suf fered from stomach trouble a form of nervous dyspepsia. He claims he is entirely cured. He looks better, and is faster than he has been In several years. That veteran infield is to be flanked by a makeshift outfield. Carey will be one, and probably the two slashing youngsters. Jim Kelley and George Watson, will fill the places vacated by Clarke and L ach. Jim Kelley looks a corking outfielder. Joe Kelly from St. Joe is promising. Mike Mitchell is there to fill in any position If the youngsters slip. Add to that Ham Hyatt, who can hit with the best of them.. but never can play any position veil enough to oust the regular, and it lo'd-s good enough. Gibson may or may not be great this year. He was the best in the land or.- season, slumped miserably tho DILLON BEATS K. 0. BROWN Affair Was Tame With no Knock down Brown Claims Verdict. MLMPHISTenn., March 2 4.

Coleman is the second-string catcher: Brennigan from Norfolk, Walt, a St. Louis semi-pro, and Ka- fora, a Chicago youth, are the other catchers. Babe Adams, Cooper, McQuillan, the come-back: sensation of lajrt season. and Bob Harmon are the slab steadies. Besides those. Clarke has gathered a bunch of promising material. Flamo Delhi, once a coast sensation; Kant lehner from Victoria, who will bear watching; Mamaux Is promising; Ful lerton from Seattle, Duffy from Great Falls and McArthur from Hopkins villo are tryouts. There Is an immense amount of good material there. Barney Dreyfuss digs them up from somewhere and finds mor than any one other magnate. Usually they look fine in figures. This spring they look good on the field. There Is one element that must be considered. Clarke has the best be haved ball club In America. I doubt if there is one man on the entire team who will drink even a glass of beer. McHENRY POOL CHAMPION WItls Tournament at Golden 3IaniTs Hall.

Vi rL- ' t veg t" t TEA! WILL WEAR SOUS OF GRAY Smith Orders First Batch Caps and Sox of Blue May Give Benders Title of "Blue Sox." Pilot Smith's Benders should pre pent a natty appearance on the dia mond this season. The suits for the local athletes were ordered Monday afternoon from a firm in Cincinnatti and the wearing of them will give the Benders at least the appearance if not the stuff of the New York Giants, jus they are to be of the same fashion that tho National champions wear. The suits themselves will be gray with a light blue stripe running through the goods. The breasts ot tho nlavers will be graced with a blue monogram. the letters B. The running gear of the athletes will bo encased in blue stockings while blue caps will adorn their heads. The new suits provide an abundance of sugges tions for a suitable name for the team. "Blue Sox," "Giants," "Grays," are a few that might do. That the Benders will play a series of games with Notre Dame lies upon the possibility of Manager Smith suc ceeding in finding open dates in the university team's schedule. Coach Harper gave the schedule to the pilot of the Benders Monday night, and if he can find open dates that do not l conflict with the schedule of the big nine, a series in all probability will be ' played. Smith's mail continues to be clut- ; tered with an abundance of corres- j pondence from ball players both tal- 1 ented and otherwise. Lots of chance has been given the local magnate to j take on men from smaller leagues j who are out of berths for the coming i season, but Smith says he has to know that they are ball players before he j will send for them, and that he is not on the market for every little man I that ever swung a bat. j WILL LAY OFF FOR TY COBB JACKSON, Miss., March 24.

Pirates and Braves Have Chances to Heckle McGraw's Men But Must Add to PapiT Strength to Cop Pennant. nv fiiank a. mi:xki:. XKW YOKK, March -1. It looks i just now as if the New York (Hants j will cru.b oil the 1014 I't-nn.int in th. i National league, therehy turning the trick th.it no team in modern h.is N.ill I has beena hie to turn winning jx u- ant lour times in a. row. i Tho lhillie.s looked upon a. ing I able to she the Giants a nal ::ght a'a the way to the wire, have l.e n ohot to Ii.'Ces by the invadiny I't-derals. With Beaton and Brennan nov itcft'orv.ir, in Federal uniforms. the i'hilii-" pitching strength in at least i r cent weaker tlian it was at the clo oC the The lilo season, actions of Second Baseman Knabe and Shortstop Doolan in going, over to the Federals has wrecked th inner breastworks of the Phillies and Manager Dooin has no one. among hi-, recruits that looks able enough t jump into the vacated spots and p r form in real style. The Cubs are not looked upon ti furnish any real trouble this season. The Cubs in the old days stacked up as one of the best aggregations in baseball history. But the going of Tinker, Chance, Bvers. Brown, lieul bach and a few of the other stars has reduced the outlit to little more than a second division organization. , H raves Hao Chance. Pittsburgh and pssibly the Boston Braves, are the only teams that loom up just now as strong enouga to heckle the Giants. The Pirates seem to have been greatly strengthened in the intield by the trade with the "ai dinals, but the showing of the club de pends quite a lot on what the pitcher:, will do. Jf the. hurlers can strike a steady stride at the start of the sea son and keep it up. Waknor. Vio. Mowry et al. makv be counted upon to do their share in the uplift work. Tho Braves are a problem. The acquisition of Bvcrs has strengthened the team materially and on paper they look like one of the very bei little aggregations that has worn a Boston uniform since Lot's wife took another squint and was transform d into a bag of salt. But what will they look like and what will they do when they begin cavorting on the. greens next month? Giant Have PitHicr. The Giants' pitching staff sizes up as the very bet in the league, Math ewson. Manpiard. Demaree and Tes reau constitute a quartet that seem to have enough skill and power to grab off about 70 per cent of their games. In addition to this quartet tlo New Yorkers have a few n w Uingers who may breeze along at a winning gait and who may not. At any rati . they'll get a chance to show their wares during the summer, and if tin y succeed in annexing at least half of their games, and the "Big Four" shows ui to standard tho Giants oiilil to rornp home with an average arounu .G7f a mighty husky one for tho other contenders to rhoot at. The Braves, with the addition of Bvers. seem to have a stronger infield than the Giants, who have been weak ened by the loss of "Tilly" Shafer. the temperamental third basing person, who announced that he was through with the game because the gano worried him so that it created "silver threads among the gold". lint the Braves' pitching staff on past per formances, seems inferior to the Giants. Tyler stacks up as the Braves best bet in the hurling line, with Per due a close second. Hess, Dickson and James are good pitchers. Pet baps they'll show something startling this year. And perhaps a few of the? new 'Brave recruits will uncork some Hinging stunts that will win th in places near the top of the list. 1 i these little possibilities happen, t.io Braves will have a look-in. SupnbaN Haw Strength. As previously stated. Brooklyn might cause a little trouble with fre quent spurts during the season, but it's quite unlikely .that they'll sc-are anybody with pennant ambitions. Wii bert Kobinson, the new manager, fell heir to a mighty good outlit, but it hasn't developed enough to warrant any pennant-possibility predictions. Charles Lincoln Herzok, after giv ing his crowd of Cincinnati Beds a close scrutiny has not rushed up to any newspaper person and claimed the pennant. Which vindicates those who often have stated that Charles Lincoln was a rather brainy person. Miller Hoggins, who is serving tim--as manager of the Cardinals, has hopes that his team will emerge from the cellar and make things exciting for the persons occupying the ground Moor and upstairs rooms in the Na tional league. But Miller always w;n a hopeful fellow, and his motto al ways has been: "Where there's l;fe OUTCLASS! S BIGGINS. PHILADKLPHIA. Pa.. March 24.
