New York, Jan 25. 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.
" 'Yerington has the greatest con
per deposit in Nevada greatest op
portunities.
" 'Glad hand to all honest miners
and prospectors; marble heart to all
brands of flim-flammers see? This
is not confidential pass it ud to vour
local newspapers, so that the public
may xnow and Yerington will ro
member you all in its prayers.' " ,
FORD WHIPPED COSTELLO.
New Haven, Jan 23. Music hall
was packed with about 000 members
of the local sporting tribe Wednesday
night to watch what proved to be the
best caw or bouts put on In this town
since Uio 1M was mangled.
The big event was a 12-round af
fair between Bunny Ford and Andr
Costello for the bantam weight
championship of ' Connecticut and
from gong to gong it furnished as
neat a portion of ring work as could
be expected by the most exacting
Dgm ran. ...
No decision was given by Referee
Mose King, but the fight and title un
questionably belong to Ford.
DIXON A WRECK.
Goorga Dixon is a physical wreck.
When the former featherweight
champion put up bis hands In an ex
hibition at the McGovern benefit ex
pressions of pity were beard on aU
sides. The little fellow does not
weigh more, than 110 pounds and Ms
movements In the ring indicated ex
treme weakness. H blew in a

A NICETY
New Britain Rudely and Unmerci
fully Thrashed New Haven
Last Evening.
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.

John Moran of this city, for the

ing season. Captain Moran has been
Niagara's mainstay . in tbe box aud
It is in part due to his generalship
that Niagara has attained her present
standing In the baseball world. The
candidates for the team have started
active practice for the coming season.
About sixty men reported to Captain
Moran in the new cage last Monday
aud judging from the material Niaga
ra will have a strong team In the field
Mils year. The injury which Captain
Moran sustained last year has fully
healed and under the careful treat
ment of Trainer Hogan, Captain Mo

The latest from Brooklyn is that
Manager Patsy Donovan will cover

refusal to sign a contract uulcs.i
given $5,000 annually. 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
