Handsome Prima Donna Off
to Hollywood Lures.
Bout Abandoned After Officials
of Fistiana Hold Seance With
Joe at Liondon Club. -
The Joe BenJamln-Jlmmy Sacco
bout is off. Another thrilling epi
sode of the "off again, on again"
film, featuring the handsonje and
temperamental Benjamin, was en
acted at the London club.
In aome unknown manner the
railbirds caught the rumor that
Handsome Joe was to do his stuff
yesterday afternoon. This attrac
tion acting aB a magnet filled the
training Quarters to the; roof with
. hangers-on eager lor a glimpse of
th matinee idol. Joe breezed in
about 2:30, nattily attired in a light
checkered suit. He was preceded
by Willie Bernstein, who some
times travels under the nom de
Dlume of Jack Kearns" western
Mystery Enter Into Plot.
Stennlnsr liehtly SO aa not -to
throw his housemaid's knee out of
gear, Joe passed through the crown
into the dressing room where the
door promptly was bolted to keep
out the curious. The crowd was
satisfied for the time being, for was
nnt thft trrpai Joe Benjamin him-
, self on hand ready to work outT
Then came Drs. Tom Koss ana
Cenrare Parrlsh. the former a mem
ber of the Portland boxing commis
sion, the latter city healtn nicer,
After giving the mystic rap and
password they were admitted to the
prima donnas own dressing onaia
The railbirds began to buzz. What
was up? Was Joe to have the Knee
amputated and go in on crutches
against Sacco Friday nigntr
Matchmaker Also - Appear. .
Thpra wa another stir when
Matchmaker Hanson appeared on
the scene. Surely the matchmaker
would know what was going to
haDDen. but it developed that he
was as much in the dark as any
one. He also joined the conclave
In the star chamber session.
Another wait of several minutes
and then the aces got busy. Even
money at first was offered that the
Benjamin fight was off. There
were no takers. Then odds were
offered but still no one felt like
risking anything on the housemaid's
knee of temperamental josepn.
The tension was relieved a little
when Bernstein slipped out of the
dressing room and went bustling
through the crowd. He declined to
commit himself, but was back in a
minute with a calendar and a couple
of almanacs.
Fight Declared Off.
Aba! Then the secret came out.
They were to postpone the bout.
Another wait of a half hour and
then Dr. Ross issued a bulletin stat
ing that the fight was off indefi
nitely. The knee la still on.
Handsome Joseph, the boy prima
donna, is off to Hollywood to cool
his heels and his knee in the con
genial and sympathetic company of
movie stars and staresses. He ven
tured the opinion, but wasn't sure,
that the knee might be ready by
October 10 and then again it might
not. .
Clinton -to Meet Sacco.
In the meantime, though deprived
of the presence of the great Benja
min, the boxing commission will put
on a show Friday night.
Johnny Clinton will fight Jimmy
Sacco in the ten-round main event.
Clinton has fought Leonard two
ten-round no-decision bouts, has
done the same with Lew Tendler,
and he won a close decision over
Sacco some months ago in Boston.
From all accounts he is a real
scrapper, not a motion picture one,
and he is not temperamental, neither
is he handsome.

C. Williams Enters Championship
Flight, Carrying Roy Sloe
Into First Division.
Several changes have been made
in the original-pairings for the
first elimination round of the city
championships at Eastmoreland,
After working several hours Sun
day night completing the draw, the
committee found several qualify
ing scores next day that hatt no
been figured in on the original
draw. This made It necessary to
rearrange several matches.
m C. Williams, who turned in a 78
in the Qualifying round, but whose
card was not discovered until af
ter the pairings had been made,
has been placed in the champion
ship flight. This change forces
Roy Moe, who was last on the list
of the 16 qualifying scores, into the
first flight. Williams plays John
Rebstock in the first elimination
round Sunday.
In the first flight Moe playa Eddie
Allwenn. Those were the only
changes necessary In the champion
ship and first flights but in the sec
ond flight there was a complete re
vision of the draw. The second
flight as it now stands is R. Tag
gesell versus F. E. Harrigan; T. E
Cummings versus bye: P. C. McDon
ald versus R. Tasker; T. E. Bowers
versus bye. t
Other changes ' in the additional
flights are: Fourth flight, R. A.
Camp versus V. Perry: tenth flight,
T. A. Duthle versus Chester Amos;
11th flight, T. Osmund versus T.
Knobal; 12th flight E. R. Hawkins
versus H. W. Hamilton: 13th flight.
T. B. Hardy versus E. D. Plerson.
In the absence of King Shanks,
chairman of the handicap commit
tee, who is out of the city, the
changes in the first round pairings
were made by A. K. Trenholme, one
of the directors of the, Eastmoreland

Baker Has Only 4 Letter Men.
BAKER, Or., Sept. 12. (Special.)
With but four letter men in
school and with none of the 3-0-odd
candidates who .answered Coach
King's call on . the gridiron today
possessing weight or experience, the
outlook for a championship foot
ball team for Baker high school this
year appears gloomy. It Is apparent
that Coach King must rely on speed
and open formations unless heavier
talent can be located.

Special Patrolman - Whiteside Is
Exonerated by Coroner's Jury
From Blame for Killing. ;
Mystery that has shrouded the
youth killed while prowling in the
Im. A. LewlB home, 70s jfark avenue.
Sunday night, September 3, promises
to follow him into the-grave. His
identity is still hidden and official
dom knows him only aa the "boy
After the Inquest held, by Earl C,
Smith, coroner,' at the courthouse
last night, identification was still as
apparently impossible as ever. The
jury found that the youth came to
his death as the result of pistol
wounds inflicted by Robert L. White
side,' special patrolman, who came
upon him while the boy was In the
Lewis home, from, which the family.
was absent.
Whiteside was exonerated In the
jury's verdict from all blame in the
circumstances and was "commended
for tils vigilance in the performance
of his duty.
Whiteside told his story of the
shooting at the Inquest. He had no
ticed a man' about the Lewis home
and made 30-minute calls there dur
ing the evening, knowing the family
io do away ana me nouse unoccu
pied. Late at night a side door was
found open and the patrolman en
tered the house, he said. Going up
stairs he - heard a noise and the
burglar ran into a bedroom. White
side followed and the prowler turned
a riashllght upon the officer and or
dered him to throw up his hands.
Whiteside fired' and the burglar's
.career ended in the darkness.
Jewelry and other loot was found
in the dead youth's pockets that was
identified as taken from the Graham
Glass home, and the Earl Shea apart
ments at ArDor court the night be
bore. A Belgian pistol, identified bv
Mr. Glass as" his own property,- was
found in the burglar's shirt pocket.
It was unloaded, but shells were tin

This completed the recital of facts
at the official hearing conducted by
Coroner Smith. .The story was am
pllfled'by statements by Lieutenant
Thatcher and Inspectors Ackerman
and Tackaberry of the police bureau.
It is understood a church at Lenta
has agreed to defray the expense of
runeral. Arrangements have not
been completed, however, and the
time has not been fixed for services.
These details probably will be de
cided today.
