If Johnson wants to meet Jim in a
sparring- match he -will have his -wish
satisfied to the full. "When news of
Johnson's challenge reached Corbett's
ears he accepted it at once, and ac
cepted it with a joyful alacrity that in
dicated a profound gladness to get a '
chance at the burly black fighter whose
enmity he has aroused by adverse critl- '
cisms. After Corbett had read John- i

But when news reached camp that
"the governor had denied any such

Before the denial came, Jeffries said:

How are the mighty fallen, and how
do they take the trend of things. Can
anea has been a consistent winner for
as long as baseball history dates back
in this circuit. She cleaned up in the
tournament last year, four games
straight, with El Paso, Bisbee- and
Douglas as opponents. Now she's hold
ing onto a Pullman berth and finding
the cushions thereof anything but a bed
of roses. But the fans, game to the
core, aren't whimpering. They rest upon
their oars and with a knowing smile
pass out the information that the boys
are bound to round to when the real hot
weather graces their particular spot of
the universe. It may be, or it may also
happen that the Qulen Sabe bunch will
need to strengthen.
Fat Wylie, since joining Cananea, has
had a little hard luck. Thes' say he
pitched a peach of a game Monday
against Rube "Walters. One run was
all Douglas got, but it was enough to
win, errors being responsible for the

Speaking of Fehrman, he has also
come in for a share of the break-wrong
kind of stuff. He got away all right
in a BIs-bee exhibition game, after Pitts
had been batted hard for four innings.
He held Douglas until the Maroons
could overcome the lead acquired off
Pitts- and pound out enough to annex
the session. Fehrman went from here
to Abilene, Kansas, where he's now
pitching good ball for Affy "Teddy
Bear" "Wilson's club in the Central Kan

Maybe War-Horse Dal, of Bisbee,
thinks a change of name will likewise
bring a change of luck. Since his re

a signed preamble stating that he

is figuring on strengthening before they
'start in next week to battle with the
other four. He's now in town, accom
panied by judge Andrews, a prominent
fan of the hill top town. They're go
ing to Fort "Worth, Houston and a lot
of other places. It is suspected that
their trip has to do with signing play
ers, although they won't sdy. Appar- I
ently, however, Morenci has the play
ing goods right now. Messrs. Tyler and
Andrews have been getting acquainted
with Harbuck and his Huskies.
There's a likely looking player ca
vorting about the local lot In practice.
He's Gable, a third baseman, of Chicago,
who's played with Callahan's Logan
Squares and a bunch of other semi
professional clubs there. He came out
here to get the lay of the land and
may drop into a berth with one of the
clubs of the circuit.
They're at it again. How many times
has that Cactus league standing got to
be gone over before it is finally
straightened out? j
Down at Douglas they recently stated
that, according to "Walling's instruc
