"Sinister , Toronto club, New York, Dec 17. Jess Willard, whose stock did not rise an enormous amount because he outpointed Carl Morris at Madison Square garden, will face George Rodel, Boer heavyweight, in New Haven, December 29.

When the articles were signed for the contest, Gasser stated that, being interested In both boxers, it Gonzales did not have the money to pay them for their services, he would make up the amount from his own pocket, which he did to O'Rourke. Gon zales had nothing to do with that mat ter O'Rourke said Tuesday afternoon: "1 hated to see Mr. Gasser remunerate me from his own pocket. I gave him a note to S. G.

Willard Intends to go to California after meeting Rodel and there will seek a bout with the winner of the Pelkey-Smith fight, which takes place in San Francisco January 1. Pelkey and Willard met In New York two years ago, Willard coming out the victor. In turn Willard was beaten on points by Smith in 20 rounds on the coast about a year ago. aicFARLAND IS SUSPENDED BY WISCONSIN COMMISSION Mllwaukee, Wis., Dec 17. Packey McFarland has been suspended by the Wisconsin boxing commission from taking part In any boxing contest In this state because of his failure to give a satisfactory "performance" in the bout with Jack Britton in Milwaukee, on December 8.

It apepared to many that the English boxer had gone back. The players living In the west -will assemble at St. Louis, and it is ex pected that most of the veterans will be ordered out with the very first del egation. The easterners will gather in New York. Jack Murray and George Burns are about the only regulars who reside in this part of the country just now, but there are a number of re cruits. Then there are several youngsters living in the south, who will probably report at St. Louis. They include Davy Robertson, the slugger of the Southern league, who is expected to take his place as a regular in the Giant out field at once. There will be five catchers In the first training party, unless one or more are released before February 15. They are Meyers, Wilson, Hartley, McLean and Elmer Johnson, the latter a recruit from Cuba. Long Larry McLean Is about to leap out in vaudeville, but he will surely be a member of the first bunch. It Is quite unlikely that Mc Graw will carry all those catchers very long, and, while he finished with four last season, it Is believed he will cut to three this season. It is likely that some veteran back stop will be hired to take Wllbert Rob inson's place as coach of the young sters. Duke Farrell has been mentioned for the job. aicGrarr Due Mnrch 10. At the present time McGraw Is up to his limit on men, and he cannot hire anyone else until he cuts down. Unless he left definite instructions to that effect. It is not likely that there will be any cutting until he returns. The world tourists will reach New York about March 16. and McGraw will hurry right on to Marlln with Merkle, Doyle, Wiltse and Hearn. The Giants will again stop at the Arlington hotel in Marlln, and the which will also train in the Texas town next spring, 'will probably be housed at an institution Known as the Majestic However, the Toronto delegation does not reaoh Mar lln until just shortly- before the Giants leave, so the camp will not be over crowded. Games at New Orleans. It is known that the Giants will be In New Orleans three days next spring, thus resuming relations with the fam ous Southern city that were shattered st-me years ago. Last spring, when the Giants were coming up from the south, headed for Mobile, the New Orleans club found Itself with an open date on the exhibition schedule, and offered It to McGraw. On account of the trouble they had there when they started to play the Athletics a spring series, the Giants were supposed to be in very foreign with the fans of New Orleans, but they drew well in spite of bad weather, and then McGraw decided to make as long a stand as possible there in 1914. New Orleans will take the place on the Giant schedule formerly held by Mobile, where they used to spend several days. Mobile took the place of Atlanta. Will Play At Mobile. The Giants will again nlav at Mo bile, but will make no .extended stop there. Mike Finn, former scout, and farm agent of the Giants, has gone to Memphis, and McGraw would like to get a date there. Harry McCormlck, late pinch hitter, and now manager at Chattanooga, is after the Giant date usually assigned to Birmingham. This has always been the most In convenient stop the club makes, but one of the best paying. Harry will have to show John Foster something to get that date. Last season both the first and sec ond Giant teams more than paid ex penses on their trip north, which is believed to establish a record in base ball. The second team, with Jim Thorpe, proved almost as great an at traction as the first team. The famous Indian paid for himself on that jaunt alone. hitter 'seldom Improves, according to the Georgian. Confident that he -can easily defeat Charley White, when they clash at Mil waukee Friday night. Ad Wolgast will, wind up his training' shortly. Wolgast says that every fight in which he has participated Nelson pieked him to lose. "I have met boxers with better left "mlts than White, so that will not bother me," said Wolgast. Operations will be begun In the east ern half of the American association about April 10. A 168 game schedule will be adopted. The schedule and play- ring plans of the association will not be arranged until tne meeting of the mag nates in Chicago. According to ad vices from Chicago, the association will go back to the three trip schedule plan. Joe Tinker was heaved out of the edi torial rooms of a Chicago newspaper, when he endeavored to force an en trance to the sporting editor's desk. The doorman, whose name is Walsh, said to be a former prizefighter, knocked Tlnlcer unconscious. The ex manager of. the Reds was also struck a number of times. Jack Everhart, former lightweight fighter. Is here from Boston, where he is now a business man and is visiting his old friend Billy Smith. Everhart will stay in El Paso for the winter. Wolgast andWBteTo Meet Dec. 19 -Bearcat" Will Have a Hard Battle Billy Evans' Baseball Problems Written Especially for This Paper by the Famous American League Umpire. SEVERAL years ago a very interesting play, which created considerable discussion, came up in the In ternational league. Plays which create argument and discussion are always unnatural plays, and this one was no exception to the rule. The contending clubs were two of the leaders in the race, and, since the result of the play determined the winner of the game, the con test went to protest. i In the ninth inning, with, .the home team a run be hind, things started to happen. With two out, the home team managed to get men on first and third. A hit would at least tie the score. The batter responded with a safe drive $o left, on which the man on tbird jogged home. The runner on first went to third on the hit, while the batter managed to reach second on the throwin. In going from first to third, the runner originally on first had ne glected to touch second. The umpire had noted the omission, and so had the shortstop of the team in the field. The latter called for the ball and touched second, the umpire thereupon calling the man out who appeared safe at third. This out retired the side. The umpire allowed the run to score, which tied up the game, and the home team managed to win out in extra innings. If you had been umpiring Oat contest gentle reader, would you have allowed that run to score from third on the dean hit to left by the batter? (Copyright, 1913, by the Wheeler Syndicate, Inc) Answer to Yesterday's Problem. THE run couate. Tie play was discussed at the same meeting of um pires that took Mp the Ainsmith play. It was unanimously agreed that no matter where the runner was at the time of the third out, he was entitled to score. It was contended that, with the bases full and the batter receiving a base oh balls, all runners must advance, which would send the man from third home and score the tally. The base on balls gave the man from second no rht to overrun third base, bat his third out, eien though it was madt before the run was over the ptate. had no bearing on the score. That run was forced over pure and simple. B. K. Nelson's Taunts Were Effective AMATEUR GOLF CHAMPION WILL COMPETE IN ENGLAND Boston, Mass., Dec 17. Francis Qui ment, the American amateur golf cham pion, of Brookline, who made such a sensation in the golfing world last summer, by defeating the English pro fessionals, Harry Vardon and Edward Ray, will compete next summer "in the British amateur championship tourna ment in England. ' t BY THOS. S. Aij nuuiiui is goiiiij io mau one more effort to show the fight fans that he can deliver the goods. The Michigan bearcat is matched to meet Charlie White, of Chicago, before the National Athletic club, of Milwaukee, Dec 19, over tfie 16 round route, at 133 pounds and if he can defeat the windy city lad and convince the fans that he is right for a big match he will go after Willie Ritchie again. In his match in Mil waukee with "Battling" Nelson, the Michigan exchampion showed that he could hit as well as ever, but he tired toward the end and he found that the Hedgewisch mayor was still tough even though his hands were battered to pieces. White has been doing exceptional work of late, his one drawback being with Johnny Dundee at New Orleans, but it was merely one of those no decision arguments and soon forgotten. On form Wolgast should have it on White, but from the improvement shown by the Chicago lad of late I look for him to give Ad the hardest kind of a fight. Unless Ad can land some of those famous left hand hooks he is liable to find himself outpointed at the end of 10 rounds of milling. A vlstory for White over Wolgast would mean much to the Chicago 'boy. It would bring him into the big money, as matches with Leach Cross, Joe Rivers and such boys would be in order and it is a pretty good bet that Johnny . ANDREWS. KJlbane, the featherweight champlo'n, would be willing to match up with him at the lightweight limit. White and Kilbaae would make a good match and would attraet a lot of attention. Johnny finds that he cannot get Into the big coin with the present flock of feather weights and he is willing to take a chance at a little heavier game. The quick defeat of Bombardier Wells, the British heavyweight cham pion, by Georges Carpentier, the French title holder, in London, puts an end to the championship aspirations of the Englishman, for no dub over there will want to take another chance with hint. "Wells has been a peculiar fighter. He has shown remarkable cleverness in some of his battles and great hitting power, but his weakness about the midsection became known to all the fighters and that was one mark they played for until they could get his guard down so as to leave an opening for a hard smash to the vital point. Wells had everything in the line of cleverness for a boxer, but he lacked the strength and stamina for a cham pionship fighter. PHOENIX PLAYER TO TttOTRE IN TEXAS-OKLAHOMA LEAGUE Proenix, Ariz., Dec 17. Ed Franz, former third baseman of the Phoenix Senators, has signed up to umpire dur ing the coming season in the Texas Oklahoma league. Franz umpired the series in Phoenix between the Sena tors and the El Paso Mavericks. I I l' J. . . . . . . Frank Chance Likes Berth No. 13 "H BY Britton, since when did you begin fighting heavy weights?" The above ques tion an many other of a similar nature, are blamed for the poor work of Packey McFarland, in the Britton fight at Mil waukee recently. Battling Nelson, an cient enemy of McFarland, who was at the ringside, hurled the taunts at the Windy City welterweight. McFarland has been dubbed the title of "beauty pug," because of his ambition to leave the ring without a mark. Joe Tinker is the highest priced base ball player now in the game. Marty O'Toole held this distinction until Charles Cojniskey, of the Cchlcago White Sox, purchased Larry Chappelle for $18,000. Frank Farrell, president ot the New York Yankees, paid $18,066 for little Fritz MatseL Tinker says that he cannot see why eastern magnates are dickering for his services, as he will play nowhere but the west next sea son. When Informed that manager Frank Chance of the Yankees always insists on berth "13" when he travels, Charlie White, the Chicago boxer, reconsidered his determination to call off his pro posed fight with Ad Wolgast, at Mil waukee, December 19. White, on look ing over his records, discovered that It would be his 13th fight of 1913. Aimed at champion Willie Ritchie, Packey McFarland, Britton, Welsh and Eddie Murphy, a number of notable 133 pounders, are getting up a union to force Willie Ritchie to defend his crown at the legitimate lightweight limit and not at 135. Nate Lewis and Tommy Walsh respective managers of Charlie White and Joe Mandot have communicated with a number of good boys over the country, and a union was the result. Plajtrs and monei will iie sacrificed to make the Chicago Cubs a pennant contender, in 1914, according to Charles W. Murphy, who recently arrived from -uuwf. muipuj lias UDU1CU 1UU1U1J) i that Johnny Evers is to be suDDlanted. Of the 12 touted twirlers taken south by the Cubs last season, only five sur vived the season. 5fr -9fr Jimmy Coffroth at first balked at the demands of champion Willie Ritch et. The San Francisco titleholder will not be able to box before two weeks Coffroth finally consented to give the champion a guarantee of $15,000.
