M'FARLAND IS GLASSY FIGHTER CHICAGO BOY HAS NO SUPERIOR AS A BOXER. WANTS THE LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE Stockyards Terror Says He Will Make 33 Pounds Ringside for Wolgast In Twenty Round Bout He Should Outpoint the Champion. f By TOMMY Ct.AKK. Tacky MiTurluiid , the Chicago whirlwind , bus convincingly demon- iiratiul In iccent inntcliu-i Hint he lit the classiest boxer doing business tnioug thu iiuniller men. In fact , there lu nut one boy In the world to- ilny who has the remotest chance of outpointing him In a limited round battle al ! ; ) , * > pound * throe houn be- tore a battle.

At 130 pounds McFarlnnd ( q the boat boxer In America , but at 133 rlngalda he would not posaeaa stamina enough to cope with Wolgast In a battle over twenty rounds.

"Ty Cobb N not such a vllliiln- nuft villain us he Is pnlnted" Ho dednres Hobby Wnlluce , Ihe new lender ( if the St. Louis Browns Bobby ml m I res "Tyrus the Ter rible" and thinks Ihe "Georgia Pencil" ilcmniidx the respect of every limn who loves good base- ball. Wallace has bullied with Cobb since the latter broke Into the big league , mill lu all that limn they hnve never clashed In n serious encounter. Cobb spiked Wallace once. He Indicted a slight gush on the top of Bodt'rIck'Hhead _ _ " _ It waa u mere scratch "and I be only wound Inflicted on the Browns' manager by the star of Tiger- land Wallace believes that Cobb will play fair with all who ploy fair with him "The bix o runner ban the right of way , " declared Wallace re cently , "and Cobb only demands that his rights be respected. If you get In the base line yon are In danger of being cut down , for Cobb comes In determined to make the bag. If the baseman takes his proper position Cobb will never cut him. " EDDIE COLLINS , NOISY CHAP. Athlatict * Star Keeps Up Running Firs of Jawing During Gamo. Few baseball funs know that Eddie Collins , the great second baseman ot the Philadelphia Americans , Is not only a rival of Johnny Evers In field ing , hitting and base running , but also In Jawing and In yelping at other performer - former ! ) . The Imprenslon seems to prevail that Collins Is a brilliant ball player , but a allent one. He Is far from nllent , being one of the noisiest ball players there are. His face always Is open , and some of these days he will Inhale n grounder If he Isn't careful. "Get a wiggle there ! For the love of Mike , do you think you're playing checkers ? Ah , sny , If I had a four- year-old baby and he couldn't stop that one I'd disown him. What ! Call that bane running ? You look like a goat tied to a pout ! Say , look at him now ; didn't .slide and caught standing up ! Hate to soil that nice white uni form , huh ? G'wan , now ; tell It to Sweeney , you big Ivory head ! " Thus doth Mr. Collins keep things stirred up vocally throughout a game , and the effect upon the Athletics Is the same as produced by Johnny Evers' diamond tribes when he upbraid * the Cubs. And maybe the Cubs didn't miss that How of Inngnage In the world's series last full ! Zimmerman , who held down Kvers' place at second , In no howler He went two weeks once without saying anything except "PI MBi puns the snlt , " and what good Is that M > r ( of oratory on n ball Held ? And another thing might be added Eddie Is always jawing at the news paper puotozraphera. When this pic- CHARtOTKR SI DOT 07 ED OOLLIK9 , COM- NIK UA.OK'3 OIIUAT STAIt. hire was taken Mr. Collins heaped all kinds of abuse on the camera man and gave him a few seconds to get out of the way or there would bo something doing. * Still , It would bo a good thing for Eddie to keep In mind that If It were not for the great amount of publicity given the game by the newspapers Mr Colllnn would really be working hard for a living at a salary much leas than he la receiving from the Philadelphia club for engaging In a game of sport.

SIGNS GO TO SHOW THAT GREAT MACHINE IS BREAKING UP. DISSENSION IN THE RANKS Many of the Leading Players Are Dis satisfied With Places on Team and Would Relish a Trade Kllng Isn't In High Favor. Is the great Chicago Cub Imsebnll machine lu the process of disintegra tion ? It looks that way to uiauy fol lowers of the game When the team waa going good , nil the athletes workIng - Ing together like clockwork , Chance's club jvajj the greatest lu the baseball world. Three straight pennantn were won and two world's championships. Then John Kllng , known an the great est catcher In bnneboll , dropped out for a year. Kllng's absence apparently started the shattering of a great club. The Cubs were whipped by Pitts- burgr the year Kllng wan out. The Cub players and followers of baseball ev erywhere held the opinion that Chicago cage would have fronted the Pirates lu the pennant race had Kllng been In the game. The next year , last season , Kling returned to the Cubs , and the Cubs again won the National league pennant. That was sufficient proof for the bugs. Kllng's absence lost Chicago a pennant the year before. Sure , Mlkel 9OMH OP CHICAGO'S it canons TUTINO UAUD TO LAND PLAOB ON THAU. Didn't Kllng come back the next sea son , and didn't the Cubs again fall into Uielr winning stride ? Can you doubt It ! Everything went smoothly enough last season while the Cubs were walk ing away with the pennant But when things went to the bad in the world's series with the Athletics trouble broke In the camp of the Cubs. Chance "called" Kllng , and there were words between the manager and the catcher. Kllng expected to be traded during the winter. lie believed ho would play much better ball with some other club Now that he is dissatisfied will he work with the Cuba in the same old way 7 Tinker Is not pleased with his berth at short and waa auxioua , to re place Stein fleldt at third , bnt Chance said no.

Hofman baa had a run In with Owner Murphy and would have qnlt only for Chance. If the team strikes falls by the wayside Artie Is apt to qnlt and put In his time at the brokerage busi ness. Overall la tired of pitching and IB anxious to try something else. But Chancu says he must stick to the slab. Brown talked of quitting the gam early In the year. Ho la dissatisfied alee and would like to be traded. With Bach lack of harmony among the club players Manager Chance will hare bit hands full this year. The Cubs may come back and show all other ball clubs the way this sea son. but there'll be many an eye on the lookout for open breaks , showlus dissension In the Cub ranks.
