Sport apid. Society Section Chicago Cabs Are Confident of Winning the Pennant This Year EL PASO HERALD y i Ritchie Has Made Good as Substitute Champion Wbese Fighting Name Is a Substitute Continues to Sabstitute Hardaflips ef Ring for Glare and Jangle of Footlights. KANSAS CITY. Mo.. Feb. 14. It is just a possibility that Joe Rivers, son of Mexico, wilt get the first championship fight with Willie Ritchie. Two other persons nave bobbed into the limelight as mare probable candnidates for a July 4 contest in San Francisco. One is Packey McFarland. who is fa- ored by Billy Nolan, manager of the campion, and the other is the winnre f the Wolgast-Murphy fight in Frisco, February 22. -, Nolan, Ritchie, T&eiry- aed Packey net privately here and discussed the j.ossibility of a fight between the pair for Jujy 4, th first real chance Packey has had to meet a champion, because all the others who held the title dodged him. Of course there will be that old v. eight question bobbing up again, but they are going to consider that in a v ery sensible mannerihis time. . Mc Farlend says he cannot do 133 ring side. Nolan says he can. Being better acquainted with what he actually can do than U Nolan. McFarland agreed that if the match is made he will go to California in advance ef the engage' isent and train. If he 'can do 133 he will and if not 135 is to be the weight. This did not suit Nolan exactly, as he wants Packey to agree to 133 and post a forfeit guaranteeing that he will make -the weight. However, as each is anxious for the fight to -take place, the weight question may not cause It to fall through. Nolan says Ritchie can whip. MeFar land at any old weight. If so he should not let two pounds stand in the way of a victory that would make his cnam-' pion 100 percent more popular than he Is to day -with McFarland undefeated. The reason Nolan wants Ritchie to fight McFarland is that -Packey is the best drawing card in the ring today, and Nolan made this statement himself. It is altogether likely that exchani pion Ad Wolgast and Tom Jones ahve actually split this time and that Jones' will hunt up another meal ticket. Wol gast accepted the match with Tommy Murphy . against the wishes of Jones, which is the cause of the trouble. But Jones is capable of managing good men and should not be out of a job long. Those who have hammered "Cherokee Tom," should r4tt overlook th fact that he has piloted two good men to championships Papke and Wolgast and he is liable to pilot a third before long, especially if he gets the right man in the heavyweight division. Jones is after Jess Willard, but to date has been unable to make satisfac tory terms with the manager of the Kansan. Jotaes may have been right In his con tention that Wolgast should not fight Murphy. Tom believed he could get an other fight with Ritchie for July 4, and Wolgast did not think this possible. Now if Wolgast loses to Murphy, Jones will be given credit for having used good judgment. Murphy is a tough one to whip. He can travel 20 rounds at top speed. Since his operation Wol gast has not been at his best. If Mur phy is in good shape he will give the Michigan boy oae of the hardest fights of his career. Frank Gotch is a very modest cham pion. 'There is nothing Frank won't do for the "dear public" If given his price. Gotch has given out a state ment that he will gladly return to the mat and wrestle If the public demands It and will pay him the insignificant sum of $20,060 for his services. uo i .4.wr vrv m.s T-rrrt "Some" folks ftRe Line CDeR-sweer ENOUGH UNTIL IT& 71MB TO WOK" lst (rENTLEMEfl BE THFriTEO Tamdo- Mi&Tflrf jortwsory, D'ye NOW ,Ur1 ft H THINK WOMEN IS AWFUL.

President Comiskey has received the signed con tract of "Ping" Bodie to play with the Chicago American league team this WILLIK RITCHIE, who dispos sessed Ad Wolgast of his crown of lightweight cham pion pugilist of the world, was born in San Francisco on February 13. 1891. Ritchie is a living negative of that good old-fashioned warning of "avoid substitutes." In the first place, his fighting name is a substitute. He was born Geary Steefen not Steffen. His first appearance in the prize ring was in 1909 as a substitute for a boxer named Willie Richardson in a four round quarrel against Monk Enoch. Ritchie won by a Knockout in the third round. Incidentally his fighting name was attached at- that point, as he deemed it more prudent lest the family punishment rod be substituted for the padded gloves of his opponent on his arrival at the Steefen residence. Makes Good 'as Substitute. Ritchie's first jump into the limelight of pugilistic prominence likewise was as a substitute and as a substitute for the man whom he defeated for the title. When Wolgast was stricken with appendicitis just before a scheduled fight with. Freddy Welsh, the Bri Usher, a year ago last Thanksgiving. Ritchie, on 24 hours' notice, was assigned the job and gave Welsh a terrific battle of 20 rounds at Los Angeles, losing a shade decision. Then, to complete the picture, just a year after date. Ritchie substituted his own name for that of Wolgast be hind the magic wortl champion. But from infancy Ritchie was cast for the substitute role. He substituted for two older brothers as the youngest member of the Steefen family. That brought him a plentiful supply of sub stitute clothes during boyhood and early boyhood days. Some times they did not fit Willie and he was lost in their recesses just as some puglistic critics thought Willie was lost in his desire to fill the shoes cobbled for Wolgast. But this substitute boy had a habit of accomplishing what he went after, and he grew to the clothes just as later be grew to the shoes. Saboiltuted Marmalade. The earliest recorded instance of sub stitution which bears the earmarks of authenticity is related by Ritchie him self. It occurred when he was 4 years old. Mrs. Steefen. capable German housekeeper, was making that wonder ful California marmalade. Little Geary knew the good things of life, especi ally when made by mother, and sub stituted himself aa a receptacle for one jar of the preserved stuff, depositing the empty can on the pantry shelf. At school young Steefen was not pug nacious, contrary to the usual biogra phy of exeat names which occupy a setting in pugilism's pages. The substitution of a fighting spirit for that of a meek receiver general came after he had accepted a position, as office boy in a hardware aind ma chinery concern. No self-respecting of fice boy can stand taunts and gibes from his fellows wltnout proving his mettle, and Geary lived up to the or thodox opinion of the genus office boys. Then he secured work in an au tomobile repair and machine shop, la ter becoming a demonstrator. At this stage of his career the future great joined a boys' athletic club, where boxing was one of the features. It was the custom for the members to change each other's facial maps for the mere love of demonstrating the art of self defence, although It was more often self-defence. Ritchie, however, proved the class of this company and earned a reputation among bis fellows which, eventually brought him the chance against Monk Enoch. Since then Ritchie has bad 43 fights, losing only four pf them. With the title safely packed away in moth balls. Ritchie by direction of his manager, the same BlBy Nolan who managed Bat Nelson in the heyday of the pane's success. subatKoted the hardships and uncertainties ef the ring for the glare and jingle of the footlights.

While here for the National - league meeting Charlie Murphy, of the Chicago Cube, was in an un usual state of high good humor. Murphy and his manager, Johnny Bvers. spent an afternoon in a tour of inspection at Ebbeta Field. Murphy returned from Brooklyn .uite satisfied that the Cubs would be next world's champions. "I'll win by three and -a quarter games at least." declared Chnbbv j Charles though he wouldn't take any wree to one on bis opinion. "We II walk in if Evers can get Orvie Overall to return. "I'm glad all the papers have us down and out," Murphy ontinued, "tor then is the time we always slip through. I can pick out 11 Cubs who show a bat ting average of .305. What other big league club ean do that?" , Murphy looks for great things from Powell, of Kansas City; Gilbert, of Zanesville. and George Pierce, with the Gianta last spring. Gilbert and Pierce are southpaws. Powell is a big right hander, the sixe of Jeff Tesreau. Evers seconded every speech made .by his boss. Johnny declares his pitchers will be far more effective than the staff of 1912. He realises that in Tinker he lost an important cog in the infield, but thinks that Al BridwaU will fill the gap nicely. "Bridwell is a young fellow," said Evers, "and he writes me that his foot is entirely well again. He injured it on a rusty nail. Bridwell ia a modest fellow, and when he tells me he is all rght I am willing to beHeve him. Give me the Bridwell ef two years ago and ril show you the greatest Cab team of them aa' T "Smoky Joe" Wood, the here of the last 'world's championship series, was on hand to greet McAleer. Jee ran over from his farm in Pennsylvania, to talk terms. All but five of the world's champions have signed for 1913. But these are the big five" of the club: the entire outfield trio Speaker, Hooper and Lewis Wood and Charlie HalL McAleer ia sure that alt of USem will be members in good standing be fore tne Sox set out for Hot Springs, Ark., on March 7. Murphy had aa alibi ready against the arrival of Frank Chance. "Irresponsible aewanaper men are guilty- of ail the criticism of Chance whiten- Baa. been attributed to me." he said. I think Chance is a great man ager and a fin baseball asset. I hope and trust he win prosper in New Tom.'
