"RED" HUGHES, CRACK S. A. A. C. FIGHTER,
WILL BOX AT 105 AND 115 THIS TEAR
"Red*' Hughes, the seventeen-year-old boxer of the S. A. A. C,
and the cleverest amateur in this city, will uphold the colors of the
local club at two weights this winter, the 105 and the 115. His
fights to date have been at 105, but Boxing Instructor Creel of the
S. A. A. C. considers that his protege is well able to defend the 115-
--pound class against all comers.
Last year Hughes was one of the greenest lads that ever donned
gloves. He showed plenty of speed and stamina, however, and after
a severe course of training during the summer, his work at the last
smoker was a revelation. While the other club boxers were taking
things easy throughout the summer, "Red" was pegging away in the
gym, and was amply repaid for his efforts at the smoker held last
Hughes Is the cleverest and quickest fighter Creel has on his
staff. The lad's work Is showy, but, better yet, he has a good punch
and is capable of standing an immense amount of punishment.
"Red" will represent the local club at Seattle on the date of the
return smoker, either at the 105 or 115 weight. If either of these
weights are chosen by Seattle when that club comes here on Novem
ber 10. Hughes will be the man to represent the S. A. A. C.
Kaye, Carter and Hughes are the boxers who will be pushed to
the front this year by Mr. Creel. Kaye is probably the best 125-
--pounder in the northwest and is expected to win new laurels this
season. Carter is a 158-pounder, good for the heavyweight division,
who has a punch in either hand and is a glutton for punishment.
He Is not the finished fighter that Kaye and Hughes are, but is ex
pected to bring home the bacon every time.
15-MILE RACE THE EVENT OF THE YEAR.
The 15-mile race between the greatest long distance runners of the
country, scheduled for this city on October 31, will be the greatest
sport event of the year in this city. Unless something unforeseen
arises, Henri St. Yves, Johnny Hayes, John Marsh and other world
beaters will tear around a six-lap course at Recreation park one week
In Seattle 8500 people witnessed St. Yves establish a new Mara
thon record, and John Marsh beat the former mark. The 15-mile
race will prove even a more interesting affair than the Marathon, as
McLean aud Fitzgerald will have a better show, together with Hayes
Tim McGrath left last night for Seattle, where he will put the
proposition up to the runners. If it meets with their approbation,
training will commence at Recreation park next Sunday morning.

circles, won his 100 th race last Friday at Latonia, Jockey Eddie

one of the narrowest wins of the season. Hedwell denies the re

WINTER LEAGUE GRABBING COASTERS.
IMPERIAL, Cal., Oct. 20— The Imperial Valley league has not fin
ished signing players for the winter season, which opens next month.
Altogether there will be about 25 players who will make expenses, and
perhaps a little bit more, playing Saturday and Sunday games in the
far south. Players who have already come to terms are: Wheeler,
Nick Williams. Nagle. Fisher.' Easterly, Krause, Berry, Zeider, Gandil.
McArdle, Wiggs, McCormick of the Milwaukee club, and Scott and
Sullivan of the Chicago club. Mohler, Henley, Baum and several
other players have been made offers. The clubs are paying the play
ers about $100 a month, which is not bad money for winted months. In
the Imperial valley there is an abundance of small game, like quail,
rabbits and ducks, and when the players were idle last winter they
killed the limit every time they went out.
Today the heavyweight champion Is a negro: Stanley Ketchel, mid
dleweight title holder, a native of Grand Rapids, whatever national
ity that it; Battling Nelson is a Dane; Abe Attell is one of the chosen
tribe, and Danny Webster is an Englishman.
Billy Smith, who was let out by the Atlanta club owners, just after
winning the Southern association pennant, may have charge of the
Buffalo team next year. Smith, who is a clever baseball man, has
been highly recommended to the Buffalo people, and it Is likely that
be will be given the situation, in case it has been found impossible to
secure Jimmy Collins.
Three of Detroit's seven regulars are McAleer discards, towlt: Da
vid and Thomas Jones and James Delehanty. Hill Armour willed Craw
ford and Cobb to Jennings, while Hughy purchased Moriarity from
New York and dug Bush out of the American association.
With the exception of Newark, every city in the Eastern league has
won a pennant at one time or another. In the association Toledo, Mil
waukee, Minneapolis and Kansas City have never been able to float the
championship bunting at the ball yards. Columbus has won it three
times, St. Paul and Indianapolis twice, and Louisville once.

According to an eastern report, every city in the Eastern league ex
cept Jersey City and Baltimore made money this year. The latter club
showed a deficit. Jersey City broke even. It is common talk that
Rochester and Newark were the only cities to clear a substantial profit
and that Baltimore, Jersey City and Montreal dropped a hefty sum.

Raseball is a pretty good paying proiiosition, once you get out of
the bushes, but life isn't lower berths and dining cars over the horse
and buggy circuit. Charley Adams, who has kept Pittsburg in the
world's series, started out in 1905 with the Parson team of the Mis
souri Valley league. He got $30 a month that year.
Of course, you know Emil Frisk. He was that ponderous thinker
and bewildering gardener who used to chase flies in the St. Paul
environs a couple of years ago. Emil has just finished his season's
toll with the Pacific Noi lowest league and was one of three men to
finish in the .300 class. "Pug" Hennett led the league with .313,
"Buck" Connors was second with .308. Emil had .307.
The clouting wasn't very heavy in the Northwest. Capron, the
former Minnesota quarterback, hit'for .274; Dick Breen, whom To
ledo wanted one time, got .260; I-ou Nordyke, .238; Joe Sugden, .233;

class to this league, but it had a very successful season. —Toledo
