ON PLEASURE BEN!
To Go Abroad, Not to Fight,
But to Hare a Joliv
Chicago, 111. June 18. Packey Mc
Karland is going to succeed Jack John
son, Harr Lewis. Willie Lewis and a
score of other American boxers on the
boulevards of Paris and London.
The Chicago boxer has decided to
make the trip on pleasure bent and not
to fight. Packey wants a rest. He
thinks he has made enough money to
last him for several days, and he wants
to spend some of if having a good time,
and incidentally seeing some of this
world. He expects to sail from Xew
York June IS and will make Stock
holm, where he will take in the ath
letic games there before hitting the in
ner sights of Paris.
Mcr'arland expects to be gone for
about two months, and will not come
hack then unless his manager can
ome to some agreement with Adolph
Wolgast for a battle for the lightweight
i nampionship. When Wolgast passed
through CMcago a few dajs ago he
said it would be next to impossible' fcr
him to arrange for McFarland until
;.ext fall, rega diess of the fact that
then, were several big clubs bidding
most extravagantly for the services ,of
those two Packey is disgusted witn
the dickering and wants to get as far
away from it as possible.
The local man intimated t-uat he
might be induced to give the Parisians
an exhibition of how to fight while
there if they saw fit to offer enougu
money. Packey may take on Georges
Carpentier, the French middleweight,
in a sparring match, if that can be

Big Rumpus Over Films of
Johnson-Flynn Fight, Why?
Something Like Row Over Johnson-Jeffries Pictures; Authority Says White
Man Has No Chaace Unless Kegre Has Gone Back; Compares
It to Historic Sayers-Heeaan Battle.
MILWAUKEE. Wis, June 18.
The Johnson-Flynn champion
ship latUt set for Lae Vegas.
X. M., July 4, has dnwn the attention
of the United states senators and con
gressmen: in fact, so much so that they
have practically put through a bill pro
hibiting the sending of fight films in
interstate commerce. That Is certainly
going pretty far to try and prevent a,
boxing match. No doubt the whole af
fair 's the result of the agitation in
1910 when such a. howl went up about
showing pictures of the fight, wherein
the colored man was victor over the
white man. No doubt, too, the same
impression prevailed when the Johnson-Wells
fight was stopped in Eng
land. HoweTer. the legislature of New
Mexico had no feeling in the matter,
one wav or the other, for they passed
a law legalising boxing bouts, and not
to be outdone, her sister state, Ariaona,
also passed a law legalising boxing
to the extent of 28 round boats. While
there are many mollycoddles who want
to prohibit all kinds of sport, boxing
included, still there are hundreds of
thousands of men and boys who like
the sp'ort, the same as they like base
ball, and who demand to have it. This
move of the senators and congressmen
seems ridiculous, although it may be
doing some good in stopping the spec
ulators in picture films from mixing
too much in boxing matches. It is not
so much sport any more; it is all com
mercialism, the same as baseball, with
the sporting sentiment taking a back
Still, the Johnson-Flynn fight Is as
sured and if pictures are taken there
may be such a thing as transporting
them about the country in aeroplanes
or automobiles. That would be a new
stunt and Barney Oldfield being a good

In the war beneath the Bluffs five years ago;

And I never, never heller Thtefr at Hank CDay, poor feller.
But I miss the pleasant days I'm here to telL
I'm the guy that favored lynching Pflester, Brown and Johnny Kling
Oh. the cubs have grown to grisxlies since that time);
And I've heard from certain sources since I took my final swing
That Chicago is a town, and not l crime.
Oh. my hair is gray and thinning, and I don't care much who's winning.
So long as it is the Giants, as you know
Though I'm sitting here so quiet. I would like to see a riot

"Was Preparing for Scries of
Springfield, 111.. June IS. Mrs. Julia
Clarke, of Denver, an aviator, wae killed
during a practice flight at the state fair
grounds last evening. Tne tip of the
ing rf the biplane in which she was
flying struck the limb of a tree in the
center of the race track enclosure and
the machine dashed to the ground.
Mrs-. Clarke's skull was crushed. She
was rushoj to a hospital in an auto
mobile and died a few minutes after
ward. The woman was unconscious from the
time the accident occurred until the
time of iier death. Only a few specta
tors w the tragedy, as Mrs. Clarke
was making a practice flight prepara
tory to the exhibition to be giwn here

friend of Jim Flynn's, would hardly ob
ject to making a record breaking trip
to Chicago after the fight to produce
the films at some theater, and then rush
on to New York with another set. It
might make some of the railroad mag
nates jealous, but there is always a
way to set around some laws. As to the
fight Itself, why. that is another Ques
tion. Boxing critics will not believe that
Flynn has a chance against the colored
man. unless "Mistah" Jack has gone
back, the same as Jeffries did when he
laid off several years, and that ap
pears to be their only hope. Flynn has
one of the greatest trainers who ever
donned a mitt Tommy Ryan and if
good advice and careful training
amounts to anything, then the Pueblo
fireman is liable to give a good ac
count of himself. I bad a photo of
Johnson taken in fighting pose the oth
er day and the colored champion sure
looked heavy and fat. It will take
some hard work to get all that fat off
during the few weeks left to train, but
even with this apparent handicap John
son will figure a big favorite, at least
three to one. It took Johnson 14 rounds
to beat Tommy Burns and then he
didn't stop him and Tommy is no big
ger than Flynn, so taking all matters
into consideration, there may be hope
for Jim. If Flynn remains on the de
fensive for 15 or more rounds and
weathers the storm there is no telling
what may happen then. If Johnson's
condition is not the best why then is
the time that it will tell and it will be
up to the fireman then to do his work
There will be a difference of 50 pounds
in weight, but remember that when
Tom Sayers fought John C. Heenan for
the world's title back in the SO's, Say
ers weighed only 156 and Heenan about
223. Therefore let us hope that Flynn
-will prove another Sayers.

She became acquainted witn the fryers
in camp and last fall went to San Diego,
Cal., to learn to operate a biplane. With
several other aviators she was under con
tract to fill s series of engagements in
the central west this summer.
Mrs. Clarke was a native of London,
England, and was married soon after her
arrival in America. She had not been
living with Mr. Clarke for some time,
friends say. She was arranging for a
two weeks' practice course at the Chi
cago field, having had no practice for a
month after getting her license, when
the engagement at Springfield was made
and she felt she would be able to keep
it in spite of her little recent flying prac
tice. Second Woman Thus Killed.
Mrs. Clarke is the second aviatrice to
meet death in an aeroplane. The first
death was that of Miss Suzanne Ber
nard at the Kansas school at Pau
France, two months ago. '
