LIVEST AMD BEST' M THE WORLD ©F SPOUTS MAY SHIFT CONLOK- CONLEY FIGHT WEST (By United Press Leased Wire) NEW ORLEANS, La., Dec. 19.— Johnny Coulan and Frankie Conley will meet for the bantamweight championship of the world in Iyjs Angeles, if Tom McCarey's plans mature. The little fighters are without a battleground as the result of the temporary quietus put on the "mitt game in Louisiana, and unless they DR4SCOLL DUE FOR BEATING, INSISTS NELSON'S CONQUEROR TALES OF GREA T UNS "Dummy" Hoy and his bride of an hour were sitting at a table-for two in the dining room of the New York hotel where the teams stop ped several years ago. when Roger Denser and a couple of other play ers appeared. "Well, well, Dummy's certainly got a peach, hasn't he?" said the big pitcher to his companion, as he took a seat. Hoy was watching Denver's lips and half an hour later, as he and his bride left the room, he laid a card beside Oenzer's plate, on which was written: "Yes. dummy*! got a peach. Thanks for the compliment." "Silk O'l .oughlm called me out one day last summer when 1 was pretty sure 1 was safe," said Ty Cobb, during the world's series In Philadelphia. "'Pretty close, wasn't it?' I asked as I came In. "'Close! 1 should say not! You were out at least an eighth of an Inch.' " "Yes, and he pulled one on me," asserted Hill Donovan. "I laid one straight across for a third strike on Itolly /.elder, but 'Silk' called it a ball. "'What was wrong with that?' I asked. " 'Too high.' replied Silk. " 'Why, it wasn't up to his knees.' I jflsw eivd. thinking I had him. "•AH right; then it was too low; I'll not quarrel with you. Go on and pitch,' said he." In the spring of 1901 Rochester •f the BaitCl'D league started the season with a long losing streak. One afternoon there were 88 people at the game, by nctual count. "Are you going to pluy?" asked "Scoops" Carey of Umpire Has kell. course; why not?" Haskell demanded. "I jilst thought If we happened to Win there wouldn't be enough here to prove it," said Carey as he am bled toward first. A play, the dupllcato of which Will probably never be made again, Occurred in New York a few years ago. Pittsburg was playing the Xlants and with the score S to .1 i the ninth and Wagner on third, Rltehey, who was on first, started to steal. Wlthdut noticing that tyasner was almost half way home. Jack Warner lined the ball to sec ond like a flush. Mathewson took in the situation at a glance and Jihoutcd to Warner, he leaped wild y Into the arr, and with his gloved hand actually batted the ball back toward the plate Warner got it and succeeded in retiring Wagner. agree on another meeting place their dispute must remain unset tled. As soon as McCarey was ap prised of the existing circum stances, he got into telegraphic communication with the boys. He made them a proposition, and is now waiting for their final replies. If he lands the fight McCarey will stage it at Vernon in January. Owen Moran, the little, duck who put the k.o. on Bat Nelson, picks Freddy Welch to defeat Jem Dris coll when they hook up at the Na tional sporting club, London, to morrow. Moran Insists Driscoll can beat Attell in a 10-round bout. "He is so fast that he can make Abe and me look as if we were anchored," says Owen, "but he's giving away height and reach to Welsh, nnd you know this Welsh got a 15-round de cision over Attell in Los Angeles. Driscoll shaded Attell in 10 rounds, but they tell me Freddy had it on him in every one of the 15 rounds. "I figure that if Welsh beats Abe easily and Driscoll just shaded him Welsh with his height and reach — skill being equal, at the worst — will win. Driscool isn't the boy he was a couple of years ago. He's been hitting the high places, and you know what kind of a chap Welsh is. I like his end." The Boston American league team will make a tour of south ern California during its training season next spring. And the New York team won out in the tenth inning. "The first ball 'Nig' Cuppy ever pitched to me was lightning fast and straight at my head, and if 1 hadn't dropped it would have beaned me sure," says LgVO Cross. "While I was trying to thing of something to say to hini, he shot two strikes across. " 'What are you trying to do, kID me?' I asked him. "'No;' he said, as he shot the third straight strike over, 'just teaching you not to be too fresh.' " SUCCESSFUL SMOKER One of the successful smoker events of the season was pulled off by the American Engravers' union at Waiters' hall Saturday night, when nearly 100 members gathered to witness a first-class program, The Kdmonson twins put up a fast three-round boxing bout; Jack Kayo nnd Jack Brechin went on for four rounds, and "Kcd" Jiughes and .lerry Lueento boxed four rounds, in the best bout of the evening. Songs and instrumental music completed the program. SUITS AND OVERCOATS WHICH WE WILL SELL FOR ONLY Uncalled for tailor made suits that were made to sell for from $:?0 to $33.

The bases were full, when a liner was hit over the pitcher's head, and Jahnke, the Skadan sec ond baseman, jumped for it, pulled it down, Stepped upon the bag to retire the man who had just start ed for third and then threw to first in time to catch the man who had started for second. The two games played yesterday, with the exception of this triple play, were not up to the standard I set by the first games of the sea son, and were both very much one sided.

Excitement over the game runs high in Wenatchee, and the mer chants of the central metropolis are willing to back their team to the limit to take the scalp of the proud eastern champions. Also, the backers of the Oak Park bunch are willing to do a little wagering themselves, so it is Bafe to prognos ticate that considerable coin will be wagered on the result of the game.
