New York Sporting Cartoonist Says
Portland lightweight Is Being
Ile-frarded as Comer, Although
Yet Par From Finished.
BT HARRT B. SMITH.
SAN FRANCISCO. July SI. (Special.)
That Freddie Welsh Is largely to
blame (or the comatose state ot the
bozlna; crame In New York is the asser
tion made the other day by Roy Ripley,
a sporting- cartoonist on the New York
Globe, who has been visiting- friends
tn California for the past two weeks.
"It's Welsh more than any other
thing." said Ripley, "that has brought
the fistlo game In New York to a lower
level and that Is killing off Interest.
Tho lightweights have always held an
interest in Gotham, and there would be
a revival If we had a champion who
would stand out. But Welsh thinks oi
nothing but protecting his title and
simply will not take a chance.
Welsh So Drawing Card.
"Personally, you can't help but like
the fellow. At the same time, as a
card, he Is minus. Welsh doesn't take
any care of himself and is mciinea to
stav out late of the evenings. When
be fights, he leads just for tha sake
of going into a clinch. Then ha
will pump his arms to fool the specta
tors Into believing he is really fight
ing. But ha can only fool some of the
bleacherltes who are so far away they
can't see all that Is happening. Close
at hand, he Is roundly hissed for his
tactics. There isn't one chance In a
million for anybody to knock him out.
and that Is what has dlsgustea tne
patrons of the game.
"If he would take a chance occa
sionally, he could be as popular as any
champion, but that Is something f rea
die is dead set against. The result i
the bouses are falling off. The fan
ill not nay the big money to see
Welsh anv longer, and with the other
cards, the same decrease In attendance
Is Indicated. Some of the boys have to
fight for as little as 12.50 and you
often see a fight house where there
are no more than 150 persons on nana
for the bouts.
White's Boxing Puxxles,
Ripley also says that Charlie White
Is much of a mystery. Tne unicagoan,
to a certain extent, so he explains. 1
perfect in his movements, but just
about the time you think he Is going to
do something remarkable, he falls
short of accomplishing his end. The
cartoonist says he saw the White
Welsh fight and after It was over.
Harrv Pollock, who manages Welsh
remarked that White could have won
had he known anything about what
"Qlv me a day with White." he re
marked to some of his intimates, "and
I would have him so he could stop
Welsh in four rounds."
One of the best boosts that Ripley
has Is for Ralph Gruman, the Portland
"He Is a cleancut chap," says Ripley,
"and the New York fans have taken to
him In a kindly spirit. Of course there
Is a need for some polishing, but he
smears to be a comer and he is
prime favorite with the fellows who
regularly attend contests. Of course
there isn't much of a chance for him
to pick up any money during the Bum
mer months, as that Is the quiet season
in New York, but this coming Winter
he ought to do well.
Gruman Is Promising.
"I have seen Gruman in his Eastern
starts and think he is the most prom
islng material that we have. Young

I didn't earn my salt while I was in

Reno Fight Recalled.
Memories of the Johnson-Jeffries
fight at Reno on July 4, 1910, which
was promoted by Jack Gleason and
Tex Rlckard, are called to mind in
suit brought this week by Miss M. E.
Hogan, as an assignee, of Gleason,
against the San Francisco baseball club,
Frank M. Ish. Cal Ewlng, Henry Berry
and other defendants to compel them
to acknowledge the right of Gleason to
10,000 ahares of stock In the corpora
tion that owns the Seals, as well as to
set aside a sale of this same stock for
an assessment -that went unpaid.
Just before the Reno fight Gleason
and Cal Ewing were thicker than two
thieves. They were botn concerns
the local ball club and there was in
general circulation a report that Glea
son owned stock in the Seals Then
came the securing of the big fight by
Gleason and Rlckard, Still another re

TI1XX.OCK TO PLAY CHEHALIS
Game Today to Be Step In Settling
Southwest Washington Title.
CENTRALIA, Wash.. July 31. (Spe
cial.) The championship of Southwest
Washington will be one step nearer
being settled tomorrow, when the Win-
lock and Chehalis Athletic Club teams
mix. Chehalis was defeated by Doty
last Sunday, and another defeat this
week will put the team out of the
running. Cole will pitch for Winlock
and Huff for Chehalis.
South Bend is putting up a strong
bid for the championship. Louis K.a
tula, a Pe Eli boy, pitching for South
Bend, has not been defeated this year
and promises to go through the sea
son with a perfect record. His oppo
nents have made an average of less
than five hits a game off his delivery.
Brooklyn papers era wonderlnc what tha
Nationals will do with Pitcher Walter Malls,
who has bssn secured from Seattle. The
scribe points out that the Dodgers already
have seven star moundsmen drawing; pay
from Ebbetts and can't solvs the problem of
what use Malls will ba to the club even
should he prove a winner.
The Nebraska State League lasted a little
after July 4, but not much. The season was

was found that deficits Instead ot profits
By winning- 13 straight recently the St.
Paul team broke the straight-win record of

Topsy Hartsel, the famous veteran out
fielder who drew pay from Connie Mack for
several seasons. Is through. He was reoently
released by Fort Wayne when he proved too
slow even for that company. He was for a
time manager of the Toledo club In the As
sociation after leaving the Athletics. Topsy
will go into business in Toledo.
Lines to P. Schulte.
How does It feel to hold your stride
Alone with memories to guide.
Where tineckard starred at Hof man's side?
Or does your backward vision glanes
Where Steiny, levers, Tinker, Chance
Once led the league a Merry Dance?
Or do your memories take wing
Hack where the vanished echoes ring
With "For Chicago Brown and Kiing?"
Llks spectra! shadows down the lea
I wonder If you ever see
Gray ghosts of Cubs that Used-to-Ber
Gray ghosts that gather, one by one,
To frolic once more in the sun
From lost campaigns, forever done?
Gray ghosts that gather and careen
In Dhantom wniri across tne green
To mold again the Old Machine?
Or, sole survivor of the east
Of fame endurins; to the last.
Are such dreams hurled with the past?
