Not a sacrifice or base on balls marred
the events of the going. The Portland

of two or three Innings, this same fate
was meted to the blacks.
The two first basemen enjoyed a busy

JOHN L TALKS FIGHT
Ring Game to "Come Back,"
Says Heavyweight Dean.
YOUNG COMER LOOKED FOR
Sullivan, at Pantages This Week, Is
' of Belief Tliat McCarty Won't Do
and That Jack Johnson Will
Xot Re-enter Ring.
John L. Sullivan, in Portland after an
absence of more than two years, be
.leves that the fight game Is "coming
back." The 54-year-old 285-pounder,
who was once the greatest heavyweight
of them all, either with bare knuckles
or the padded mitts, can't see much
light ahead for the public among the
big chaps, but thinks that within a few
years every state in the Union will
legalize 10-round boxing.
"The trouble with the fighter of to
day is that. Instead of devoting his time
to advancement In ringcraft. he Is en
gaged In counting his money and
squabbling with the promoters over
guarantees," said the grizzled veteran
yesterday afternoon in his reception
room at the Pantages Theater.
"It's, 'How much do I get, win lose,
or draw?' and the public Is disgusted.
"Some of these days a young fellow
weighing about 200 pounds and stand
ing six feet 11 or 11 1-2 Inches tall, will
come along, act more like a boxer than
a hold-up rr.an. agree to fight for a
percentage of the gate receipts, and
win the confidence of the public. Then
the heavyweight division will be re
Instated in public favor,"
John L. does not like to talk about
fights and fighters at least he so as
serts but almost every conversation
winds up with more than a few words
anent the ring. He expresses few
opinions regarding present day fighters,
confessing ignorance of their merits as
he has not seen them in actton, but
takes the word of many critic friends
for It that Luther McCarty will not
"Jack Jol'nson Is through; he will
never fight again. No one would dare
to put him in the ring In this country;
the public won't stand for it." Is Sul
livan's expression regarding the ring
future of the man who holds the
world's heavyweight championship.
Unlike Corbett, who disparages John
son at every opportunity, Sullivan
thinks that the negro would have been
a great fighter had he used his head.
"Johnson Is like many other fighters;
he lost his head when he reached the
top. so. Instead of being listed as one
of the greatest champions in history,
he will be remembered by the next
generation as the man who defeated
Jeffries when the Callfornlan would
have been prey for almost any second
rater In the country." says the ex
fighter and vaudevilllan on his fare
Sullivan likes to talk of his farm
back near Boston, where he devotes
much of his time at home to ploughing
and other agricultural pastimes.
The famous old ringman was a guest
of the Portland Press Club at Its St
Patrick's day jinks last night, and
was also entertained by Pete Grant, an
old-time friend. J. J. Fitzslmmons and
many other friends visited Sullivan dur
ing the day.
