took a jump on the Harlem, boy to win the
proposed contest.
In addition to skipping the rope for three
rounds, Kelly shadow boxed for an equal
number of sessions. The Harlemite is ex
tremely fast and is a swift, snappy puncher
witli a lot of force behind his blows. Lefty
Floyd, the Uttle negro lightweight, boxed
three fast rounds with Kelly, and the Mack
and white mixed the going freely. Floyd has
shows a big lmprorement orer his form of
several months ago in Juarez and to all ap
pearances will glre Cordova a hot battle as
the seml-windnp to the Gage-Kelly contest.
Kelly appears to be in excellent physical

Monte 1th, the weight of 132 pounds will be
exactly right for the little eaterner. Kelly is

J. Johnny Dundee, ef Hew York, left El
Paso Monday afternoon for Los Angeles.
where he is signed to battLf Johnny Kilbane
i or me ieauirwetgacCfiamptonsBip on some
date during early September. It Is probable
that Johnnie will return to Er Paso before
the Kilbane battle, however, as manager
Scotty Monteitb and sparring partner, Eddie
Kelly, who has a fight on his own hands,
remained in the city.
Lugging two big grjps, each nearly as big
aa .himself if set on end, Dundee hopped
aboard the rattler bound, for California, amid
the good luck wishes of his manager and a
crowd of fans.
On arriving at the union station from the
hotel. Dundee began a search for Scotty. He
found the diminutive manager glancing over
a punch of pink sheets and .scowling over
the newspaper reports of Sunday's fight. '
Besides being one of the greatest little
fighting machines of his weight in the world,
Dundee Is remarkably clever and bright. AH
of his business Interests are attended to by
Scotty Monteith. one of the shrewdest char
acters of the glove game.
Grover Hayes, the veteran Philadelphia!!,
was accorded a similar leave taking when
he left for Michigan, accompanied by his
manager. Bemy Dorr. Monday morning.
Hayes, who made a hit with El Paso fans.
is now signed to box Jack Britton some time
during the middle of August.

featherweight champion of the armv.
who defeated Frankie Martin at Fort Bliss
several days ago, is in the Fort Bliss hos
pital suffering from a severe eye ailment
that may result in the permanent injury of
one optic and leave the other In such a :
weakened condition that the great little
scrapper will have to retire from the ring
and give his ambition of becoming the mid
dleweight champion.
Physicians at the post in. response to the
many inquiries, however, believe that his
eyes can be saved and that they will be as
strong as ever in time. Tuesday night one
week ago while training for, the conteat
with Martin, a sparring partner acddentlly
butted the little boxer over the Jeft eye.
When Papke entered the ring the eye was
swelled and blue. In spite of this handicap
and a pair of badly skinned knuckles, ha
defeated Martin well within the limit.
Sunday morning when John Manyon, his
manager, -went to the hotel, Papke could
barely see out of his eyes and was groping
for a glass. He was Immediately removed to
the Fort Bliss hospital, where the eyes were
attended to by the post surgeon.

Well boys. It's all aver. Toss away your

At least this is the view -of an editorial
writer in the Cincinnati Enquirer, who de
clares: The national sport. If it has not been slain
outright, lies apparently mortally wounded
upon the altar of greed.
Playing upon the credulity and cupidity of
the athletes themselves, shrewd and calcu
lating promoters have brought about condi
tions in baseball that have injured the sport
beyond repair - - Greed, a supereem
merclallzatlon. has served all too quickly to
Impair that confidence and to destroy the
unquestioned belief of the public In the In
tegrity of baseball aa a sport.
The spectacle of contract Jumping, the
utterances of athletes that they are In the
pastime only for the money that Is In It.
the indifference, expressed or implied, cf ,
many of the athletes to moral or iri nUi. !
rations, has oulcklr resulted in a lax f in.
terest on the part of the public. That apathy
and indifference will become more marked
year after year.
Just the same. It's even money the Cin
cinnati writer will have a bet down on the
world's series outcome In IIM. At any rate
the folly of a few men today cannot uproot
a recreation with as itrasr fiAid ..
American public as baseball. The promoters
may die, and the greedy athletes; but not
the love of the game. That will effect a re
organization of baseball on better Hnes. and
very soon.

French Wnen)Attend.
It ls nothing new to find hundreds of
women- attending these boxing matches in
Paris, but it waa something of a novelty In
London. However, these ar sot the only
cltlea where women attend boxlar eooteata.
for in Milwaukee last winter, maay women
attended the matches at the aaditeriam ana
they seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. Most ot
the women who attend these contests wero
very out-spoken aad aaid that they could
see no reason why the fair sex could not
attend them Just as well as watching a
football match.
As long as boxing znstches are properly
conducted and held ln respectable quarters,
there la no reason why women cannot at
tend them. Of coarse. It has always, been
a supposition that boxing ls a man's sport,
but nowadays the women seem to be tak
ing up all kiBds of sports snd they have
included boxing Is the list. So that settles
Cross Meets TIflman.
Leach Cross, the New York dentist, who
haa been apeadlng the summer at Loa An
geles, will meet Johnny Tillman, the Min
neapolis lirhtwdarht. on Julv lath, hefor
Tom MeCarey'a dub at Vernon. Cross was
originally matched with Joe Rivers for this
4ate. but for some reason the Mexican
dropped out and as the Minneapolis boy waa
on the ground, ho was given the chsaco
to show his wares against the hard-hitting
New Yorker. TUlmas. has been Mmlnr
I along very nicely of late and showing good
ions ia ma contests arouna toe middle
west. He ls a verr cool lad ln tha rlnr
with a long left hand, and unless Mr. Cross
should happen to put over a K. O. early la
the conteat. it will not be snrarietnt in ha
that Johnny outpoints Leachey at tho end of
the 3 rounds. Cross mar lmaclne that he
ls picking a soft one. but he Is liable to
bump Into a very big surprise party.
Charley White, the Chicago lightweight,
demonstrated ln his battle with Stanley
Yoakum Is Denver, that ho can travel the
Marathon route without the least bother
aad finish like a race horse. There was
some doubt about Charley being able to go
the distance, aad maay of the boys around
the country have intimated that hT he tried
to travel rounds with Willie Ritchie, that
the latter would have all the best of It.
