NATIONALS NEW YORK, Deo. 22—fienify Kaufr, star outfielder of the Brooklyn Federals, jumped to the New York Nationals yeelerdar afternoon, signing a three-year contract with that team. He will be paid $8,500 for the three years, with a bonus of $5,000. Ever since peace negotiations began, fans have been woaderinn what would happen to K»nft Kauff has been the leuilhm performer In the Federal league for two years and there is not a club In the National and Ameri can leagues right now, with the exception of Detroit, that could not make good uhb of him. Jennings already has the best outfield in the majors in Cobb, Crawford and Veach. The next best outfield Is that of the Bos ton Red Sox, composed of Speak er, Hooper and Lewis. Next to Kauff, the most want ed player will be Lee Magee, who managed the Brooklyn Feds part of last season. Magce was a star with the St. Louis Cardinals be fore he jumped to the Feds and played great ball this year, ran't lng next to Kauff in several de partments. Besides Kauff and Magee, there are not many players in Fed for whom much of the battle will be made. Kauff went from the bushes to th« Indianapolis club of the A mum- lean Association but Jumped to the Feds in 1914. He helped the Indianapolis Feds win the pen nant. He led the league in six Sam Howard Wears Glad Rags and Has Diamond Teeth; He's Live Wire Whatever else Frank Farmer may have done in the year that he has been traveling through the east, we've got to hand it to him for one thing. Frank has made the reputation of being the only Jacoma boxer to have fought himself into fame in the east, and incidentally to have brought back with him a regular, sure-enough, case-hard ened manager of the old school. Farmer's manager is Sam How ard, manager of the Athletic club of Oshkosh, Wis., and the Vernon A. C. of Marinette, Wls. Sam is known throughout the boxing world ;is the only diamond tooth ed personage connected with the game. Sam has a couple of »park lers set in his Incisors which dazzle his auditors when he ex pounds upon the capabilities an I future of Farmer, whom he terms a prospective champion. We might call Sam a runt, only we don't know yet whether he is endowed with any fistic abilities of his own. At least, he is a very diminutive person whose everyday attire would satisfy some of us common persons even for such a SABLE SAMS ARE LAST NOTABLE SURVIVORS OF RAGE OF FIGHTERS Everybody laughs when, every few weeks, Sam MoVey and 9am lAngford are matched, but them to a good rouoii why theee two negro tighten keep pummeltua: on. mother.

And he has a per petual grin that extends from ear to ear. Maybe the diamonds have something to do with the grin, I but it seems to be genuine. alee for them to fight. Langford and McVey are the last notable survivor* of a race that produced come mighty clever performers — Joe Oans, Peter Jackson, Ueorge Dlxon, Joe J«an Brooklyn and kept up his great work at bat and on the bases, leading In both departments. At one time during the season he Howard represents a well known type of eastern boxing promoter. He knows all there is to know about the game. Among other things, he has a half inter est in Fi»d Fulton, and he seems In earnest when he Bays that he believeß Fulton has a good chance to stow away Jess Will ard. The promoter is enthusiastic over Farmer. Some of his press clippings from the east, especially one from the New York Globe of August 20 (in which throe-quar ters of a column are devoted to the Tacoma boxer) give Farmur laudable reviews. Tacoma friends of Farmer be lieve that the big logger has really made a great improvement, or he would not have a live wire like Howard managing him. They look for a real battle when Farm er and Bonds meet Monday night. Paul Steele announced two other bouts for his card today. They are between Young Benja min, of the Tacoma School of Boxing, and Leo Crevler of Se attle, at 122, and between Lee f'ohn of Centralia and Young Mahoney of DuPont. ette, Young Peter Jackson, Joe Walcott, Jack Blackburn, Bob Armstrong and others. Jack Johnson hurt the game for the men of his race. His actions put the negro boxer in din repute. He tore down prestige built up by dans, Dlxon and oth ers. McVey and Langford were real ■tars. lfoVey at one time held the the championship of Franc*. Few white hevles wanted any of his game. Langford ruined his chances for matches by trimming Gunboat Smith.

Fox suffered intense pain, but tried to jump to the National league, but couldn't get away when it was returned to Brook lyn. PEER'S jgw- IFFLE Eddie Pinkman, the Se attle boy who put up such a good match with Sammy Good here last week, boxed his last professional match in Seattle last night when he met Danny O'Brien of Portland. His announcement that he would retire from the ring game came us a dis tinct surprise to Pinkman's many friends in Seattle and Tacoma. Fight fans are at a loss to understand why Johnny O'Leary and his manager, A. W. Madden, should enlist to fight with the allies. John ny has always managed to find enough fighting in this country, without going to Europe to do it. His last bout will be with Kid Sealer in Kdraonton New Year's day. He enlisted at Sarka toon.

The 20 players, coaches and managers, were given a re ception here last night. "Rube" Kv.imm. big south paw of the Portland Coast league, has been sold out right by Walter MuCredie to President Farr of the Spo kane Indians. Evans form erly played with the Cleve land Americans. Last sea son, however, he had all kinds of hard luck and came through the season with nine wins and 22 losses, accord ing to the official dope. Anyhow, Farr got him cheap, and he may come back in 1916. . _ Chief liOomis says he came near stopping boxing In Ta coma several weeks ago, when they began importing boxers for the local matches. He says that if the local pro moters hadn't become over anxious to reap a few sheck els, and had confined their bouts to local boys, there wouldn't be any lid on the game January 1. "These promoters don't know when to take a warning and they don't know when they have a good thing," says Loorals. Sfanlslaus Zybszko, wrest ler of several hundred poundi, will arrive In the U. S.
