TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 190*.
Local Bowling, Foot-ball, Pool and Box ing Both Jack O'Keefe and Kid Park er are in fine shape for the com ing fight to be held at the Spo kane Amateur Athletic club Friday night. O'Keefe and Parker are anxious for the night to come when they will enter the ring for the light of their lives. The two boys are both at weight and will do no more boxing until they enter the ring. The boys are not half as anxious for Friday night to come as are the lovers of the sport. Everywhere in the city can be heard discussion as to the winner. A few bets are be ing made. O'Keefe Is a slight fa vorite. The bets are 25 to 20 on the Chicago boy. Both O'Keefe and Parker are confident of winning the"long end of the purse and both will fight as he never did before. ® ® ® Big Mike Lynch to head the Ta coma team and the Tigers to be in the Northwest league for the com ing season, is a practically settled program. H. I). Merritt of the Spo kane team returned to the city yes terday and made the statement that he thought Tacoma was a sure go for 1906. Lynch Is a Tacoma man and well liked over in the Sound city. ® ® ® In last night's poo] contest at the POster parlors. W. P. Ridgway defeated Edgar Boobo by a score of 125 to 49. Beebe made several costly mlsplaya which were readily . taken advantage of by his oppo nent, who secured a good lead and held it until the wind up of the game. Neither player was in the nest of form, but the game proved very interesting to the many spec tators. Wednesday evening, Ridg way will have as his opponent Dean of Coeur d'Alene City, and if Dean plays in the form he showed last summer, a good game may be expected. ® ® ® E. E. Bmathers, the millionaire horseman, has been accused of knowing that drugs had been ad ministered to Lou Dillon, C. K. C Billing's famous trotter, at Mem phis. Oct. 19, 1901. Bmathers, driving his own horse Major Delmar, beat Lou Dillon. A gold /up, worth $5000, which Bmathers' norse won, has been tak en by a deputy sheriff out of Sum thers' suite of rooms in the Pierre pout, New York.

Mr. Smathers denies any knowl edge of the affair and states that if dope was used on Lou Dillon ho knew nothing of it. ® ® ® Connie Mack favors changing the foul strike rule to exempt the bats man from a strike for a foul tip. "The batsman doesn't live who can intentionally foul a ball so that it will go straight back from the bat toward the grandstand," says Con nie. He thinks it wrong to penal ize a man for such a foul, and he Is right. ® ® ® Jim O'ltourke has been playing baseball continuously for .'59 years. It is estimated that ho has faced the pitcher 18,000 times. He has traveled 5000 miles on the base lines, has spoken cross to the um pire seven times, drank 6000 gal lons of water, said "gosh all hem lock" 46 times, was benched 341 times and had 3,578,042 different expressions of disapproval hurled at him by the bleacherites. ® ® ® Joe Walcott was ordered from the ring by tho referee in New York the other night because ho was faking a fight. The referee overheard tlie two flfighters talk ing while in a clinch, and as they had repeatedly missed swings at each other he at once stopped the bout.

Hart made a few remarks about Jeff after the Hoot light in Reno last summer. Reports say it cut the big fellow to the quick and he has confided to a few of his friend! that he wouldn't like any thing better than a chance to make the Louisville fighter eat those bit ter words.
