Morenci, Ariz., April IS. ilorenci de feated Clifton in the first clash of the season, 11 to 6. Despite the fact that it was slated as an exhibition game a large crowd turned out. including- a big delegation of Clifton rooters Morenci outplayed Clifton in every stage of the game and -won out in rather hollow style. The local team is going in mid season form, while on the other hand Clifton showed lack of team work and bad throws were plentiful. Ashley, who started off on the slab for Morenci. was very effective but Cumm-ings who relieved him was wild and only the gilt edge support he re ceived held Clifton down. Stanley, who started for Clifton, comes from the coast and is not vet used to the altitude. He wore hims'elf out in the first four innings and then Morenci put the game on Ice. Clifton finished the game but also got his share of the bumps. It was only during the last two innings that Clifton showed any kind of form when they cut Mor enci's big lead down, but the rally came too late.

New Orleans J has been the running race center of the south for years and has been the dumping ground for all of the dis reputable characters in the game since the track was built. The same hardened faces that were seen on the streets and around the bet ting ring of the Juarez track may be seen on Canal street in New Orleans any day and some of the same persons who were here last winter for the late unlamented race meeting are to be seen around the Louisiana city selling sou venirs and profane postcards to the crowds as a means of making a living between the racing seasons. Depravity In nil Forms. Those. who claim that racing and its accompanying carnival of gambling is a good- thing for a city, should have been on Canal street last Thursday af ternoon during the reproduction of the Mardi Gras, which was arranged for the entertainment of the Shriners. From 6 oc?ockin the morning until 6 in the evening all the crooks and tough char acters weregiven licence to parade be fore a crowd of decent pdople. Things were to be seen on the streets in broad daylight that would shock the moral sense of any-sane person. Women ap peared half clad and alley negroes pa raded the streets in suggestive cos tumes and with their faces and hands covered to disguise their color. When the 6 oclock limit had expired the maskers were ordered off the streets by the police but were to be seen in the restaurants and on the side streets until after mindight. . Accumulation of Vice. I This accumulation of vice in New I Orleans is one of the direct results of the encouragement of racing and sim ilar occupations which attract the dis reputable characters from all parts ot the country. Each year these unde sirable citizens flock to New Orleans for the racing season in order to get in on a little of the easy money which is the lure of the race track. Each year when the races close, a large percent of this horde of human driftwood is left there to make a living :n any way possible until the racing opens again. Spoiled for honest work by the easy money around the track, these char acters seek to live by every possible hook or crook. Robberies, holdups and similaT crimes result. Shall We Imitate New Orleans? El Paso is just starting with the races in Juarez. Although they have been running but one season, the police rec ords show a decided Increase in crime. Each year when the races open, a flock of these undesirables will come to El Paso, as they have been going to New Orleans for years. Each year when the races close across the river, a horde of camp followers will be dumped on El Paso because they are broke and can not get away. Should this dumping process continue indefinitely as it will with the continuance of the races in Juarez, El Paso may expect to see the same civic conditions existing as ex ist at the present time in New Or leans, where morals are lax and where a carnival of disreputable characters is permitted each year. portlet I By Tim Ted Coj', of Tale, the greatest foot ball player of all time, almost, is go ing to be a newspaper man.

"Flying Fish," the Herring-Burgess aeroplane. made three successful flights yesterday over the marshes of Plum island. Jem Briscoll, featherweight champion of England, knocked out Spike Robson, also of England, in the fifth round ofa one sided mill at London, Eng., yes terday.

The Greys, a fast amateur club of Clifton, are now organized for the sea son and ready to meet any team In the southwest outside of the "big league." In the personnel of the team appear the names of some of the fastest amateur and scholastic stars of the vicinity. The Greys have been playing for several seasons with clubs around the county, but this year are out for bigger game. Already they have given the Regulars a couple of hard runs. All communica tions should be addressed to the man- ager, M. C. Whitacre, Clifton, Ariz. Tiie Thatcher Academy defeated the Clifton high school in a 15 inning game by the ore of 6 to 5. Both teams played snappy ball and the contest was an Interesting one from start to finish. The umpire is a most unhappy man. Ask Jacobs. Ballplayers should never talk to the grandstand; It makes them unpopular. Mathewson's name is not Christy, and he doesn't act like It, either. Those gaffes, Mr. Groundkeeper what are thej for? The crowd will not run out until the game is over. Open them. Gowan is doing some fine stick work this season. Hewitt is still our of the game on account of a bad ankle. Kernan will have to get some ginger if he expects to make good. The meal tickets are no.t so plentiful and the pitchers better warm up and get into the game. Harben ought to take a few Turkish baths and get rid of some of that fat; he can't go nine innings in his present condition. El Paso got only half as many hits as Douglas Sunday, but should have won the game at that- The crowd in the. grandstand is grow ing as the car service is being Improved. as well as in grand physical condition. Treatlnjr Nervous CeHier. "I have in my trunk quite a bit of. paraphernalia for ascertaining nervous faults and will use the appliances on the big fellow. I have a new form of therapeutic lamp that will be used In diagnosis and remedy. "For years I have remained station ary in weight, and only weigh 167 pounds today. But I am gaining in weight. I have applied the nervous center treatment upon myself despite the fact I thought I was about the healthiest man in the world and It is resulting in a gain of flesh. But I'll be pretty light to meet the onslaughts of a 225 lb. boxer. There will be no malice or grudge work in our -oozing, but I'll try to hit him and he will try to hit me. I will not wear a pneumatic pad over my heart. It will be my task to keep him from landing those crushing blows." The sun is strong In right field and Kernan is not used to It, but he may get there yet. Jackson never touched the sphere Sunday, but he had to rest after Satur day's swatfest- Double plays always make a. hit -with the grandstand. El Paso will soon have a real live umpire. Jacobs Is obliging, but he has been out of the gams too long. The boys on the fence are roosting" high and enjoying the game. It is a good idea to keep them all away from the players's bench. "Go-on-now" Is about the way the name of the new ump. will be pro nounced; It Is easy enough. ART AND MUSIC ON A PRIZE FIGHTER Jeff's Trainer Will Work a Nev Wrinkle in Prepar ing His Man. Chicago. 111.. April l. "Music, art, psychology, painting, poetry, literature all of these are going to be .tried on the former champion at his training ' camp by yours truly, providing I find i that as chief boxing partner and su j perlntendent of training, I am given the latitude I should have," says Joe Choynski, who Is on his way to join Jeffries. His unique ideas about, train ing a pugilist continue: ( "I shall permit no one to indulge in fight talk or pugilistic fanning with Jeffries when he is at the tralnnlg table or when in the evening he elects to rest on the porch as a reward for strenuous road and gymnasium work. "It will be my duty to get him back into condition and I have my theories on how to dissipate his nervousness and his tendencj' to develop grouches. "When we are out on the road no automobile or rig will be permitted to accompany us. I will, try to be with him every minute. If he wishes to slow down to a walk, loaf under a tree, or even ruminate in some beautiful nook of the country over which I rode a mustang in my younger days and before anyone else thought of putting in a summer resort camp, he can do so. Training the Xcrvea. "In training I would have any one who dares to talk fight with Jeff do so until his tongue is sore the more fight ing talk the better. But music art, painting, etc, must be the subjects of conversation at the training table. "I have theories about the nerve cen ters and their effects upon a pugilist in training. "They all have been commended and corroborated by a number of Chicago physicians, some of the highest medi cal authorities. I will stake my life on them, and likewise my ability to get Jeffries Into a pleasant frame of mind REAL BALI, BUG $ BACK TVJTH PIXS. Big Bill Crawford nas rii"neJ frcm Turson and Ios Angele?, wner- he ha been spending the past six weeks. Bill has been out of baseball as much as the law allows, but the bug is in the blood with him and he talks, eats and sleepa the national game wherever he is. "While in Los Angeles he was discov ered in the recesses of the Hollebeck hotel by G. H Clements and Col. George tipped it off to the Los Angeles news paper men that a real, live baseball man from the cactus league country was in town. In some way it leaked out that S. William was in quest of plaj'ers for this neck of the country and a mob of favorite sons, star performers, eighth wonders and phenoms went gal loping Into his abiding place in the hig hotel, looking for bed, board and Bull Durham smoking for the summer sea son. Bill modestly but firmly declined each and all offers. From. Los Angeles Crawford went to San Francisco and to Jeffries's training camp at Ben Lomond and had it slipped to him on the quiet that the big fellow was not working overtime in training for the fight with tne big dinge and that he would not get down to brass carpet clinchers until a month before the match. Returning by way the Grand Canyon, Crawford is now a mem ber of the fan colony and has a fa vorite seat on the shady side of the grand stand for the season. 1 Wwmh i Wnen having pictures made vrhy not get the best?
