Kid Stinger put Frankie Paul away in the second round of their bout before the Long Acre Athletic club last night. It was scheduled for six rounds, but it was apparent before the end of the first session that Paul had no chance. After he had been knocked down in the first time was cut to save him. In the second Stingir went after Paul from the -bell and had htm so well beaten that the fight was stopped. A real good contest came out of the four-round meeting between Bert Keyes and Owen Fllnn. Keys was touted as being the class and it was supposed that Fllnn would do well if , he was there at the end of the fourth ! round. He was a trifle more than there, for be kept Keyes busy all the time and had a decided lead in the swapping of punches at the end of the bout. ' j- Other entertainers who went the draw route were Emergency Kelly tnd Harry Morts, George Hoey and oe Bedell, and Charlie Keeger and Young Joe Grim. DISPATCH AND ANSWER, f H. L. Baggerly, sporting editor of the San Francisco Bulletin, ran the following dispatch from Yerington, which is considered good enough to be passed along down the line: "The Yerington Chamber of Com merce had an inquiry last week from the San Francisco sporting frater nity, asking what the camp would put up for a prize fight and request ing an answer by wire, saying 'this will be worth millions to your camp as an advertisement. All the Neva da camps are having them. Look at Goldfleld, Tonopah, Bullfrog, Searchlight and Ely. " 'It you will put up liberally we will give you a mill that as an ad for the camp will knock the stuffing out of the event Tex Rickard prom ises to pull off In Ely next spring.' "The chamber of commerce in structed the secretary to turn thecp down cold 'We don't want any of that sort of ruffianism here.' , "The secretary sent the following dispatch: 'Letter received. Nlxy. No opening here for your art. Only thing chamber will put up for prize fight is Jail with iron-clad guarantee, bread and water thirty days. Yering ton not doing any mining above ground and doesn't believe in scan dalous advertising. " 'Got Ely skinned a mile for cop per and willing to let her have all the flim-flam advertising she can se cure from prize fights.

New Britain, Jan 24. In a game which at the beginning showed fast clean playing, but which toward the end was marked by roughness, the home team defeated New Haven in roller polo last night, 10 to 4. The visitors were outclassed from, the start and at no time was the result in doubt. . ' POLO W HIFFS. What a walloping! . , New Britain must have been sore. r New Haven will certainly have to do better than she did last night In New Britain. : " Waterbury goes to New Haven to night and perhaps Bone will have his new players on the firing line. Dave Cusick, who was to have' signed as goal tender with New Ha ven, is playing with Youngstown of the Ohio league, v ? - 1 Hartford' arid Bridgeport are call ing each other pet names now about the ability of their teams. It looks as though Bridgeport had it on the Hartford company, by long odds. ' Some of the players are getting weary of the west and there are a whole lot of good ones out In Ohio. If Vvallingford wants to strengthen and will put up the money she can get almost a whole new outfit. If Meriden has a rink and coudl be induced to take the Walllngford team and then wake up from her sleep, polo might go there again as It once did. It is hard to wake up Meriden though once she has gone into her Rip Van Winkle sleep. Waterbury has taken the last two games she has played with New Ha ven and the latter team is more than anxious to 1 win the game in New Haven to-night. It would be a good Joke to have the improved New Ha ven bunch go down again this even ing. Beaver Falls beat Niles the other night by the score of 1 to 0. Not one ball got by Sutton which shows lust what kind of a game the local boy Is playing in the west. Jimmy Canavan brought out Sutton and said that he would make the best goal tender in the business, . : Frank Sutton of .this city, who is the star goal tender of the Ohio league and is playing with Beaver Falls, will quit that team Saturday night unless he receives more pay. He wants to come east and here is a chance for some of the managers to get a champion goal tender. RACINU o r4.wr.-M 8ANDS. Haadrat Mlla Evaat For Mlaaaaaalli Cop Woa kr E. B. Blakalr.

John Moran of this city, for the past three years a regular pitcher on the Niagara university baseball team lias been chosen captain for the com ing season.

The City Amateur league is due for a meeting pretty soon to prepare for the summer. : There is a whole lot of business to be -done, the election of a new president with the other offi cers and the adoption of new rules.

Hummel may also be given a trial at the Initial sack. Morning baseball on Sundays, will not be allowed this year any more than in any other year and the lea gues that have been formed lately with that Intention will only ruu up against a snag if they try it on.
