Death of McCarthy
May Stop the Rig
Fight in 'Frisco
Clergymen . Start Agitation and
Appeal to Governor Gillette and
SAN FRANCISCO, April 30.-(Specinl
Telegram.) The clergy of San FranclRco
and tho bay counties are aroused because
of the death of Tommy McCarthy, killed
In the prise ring, and have already started
anagltatton against the holding of tho
Johnson-Jeffries fight at Emeryville on
July 4. The ministers will appeal to Gov
ernor Gillette and the district attorney of
Owen Moran, the English lightweight
pugilist, was formally charged with man
slaughter today as a result of the death
of Tommy McCarthy, his opponent In last
night's prize fight. Five other men, sec
onds and attendants of the two fighters,
have bten booked on the same charge.
When the principals and seconds later
were arraigned before Pollen Judge Conlan
Willie and Johnny McCarthy, brothers of
the dead fighter, were released on their
own recognizance, while the others were
held on S00O bond each or $100 cash bail.
None of them has yet secured bonds.
Sporting circles here are obviously dis
turbed over the latest prize ring fatality,
fearing Its effect on the Jeffries-Johnson
fight. Johnson has cancelled his engage
ment to appear In a public exhibition to
night. Chief of Police John D. Martin said to
day: "The game undoubtedly will be given a
black eye In this town for some time to
come because of McCarthy's death. As
far aa I know, no official action will follow
his death unless I am satisfied that the
regulations governing such contests were
violated In last night's fight.
"To me it seems Just one of those un
fortunate accidents that. sometlms mar the
pugilistic' game, as well as the game of
McCarthy's skull was fractured from the
Impact with the mat after Moran had sent
him to the floor.
Owen Moran and hla seconds, Jeff Perry
and Jimmy Carroll and McCarthy's broth
ers, William and Johnny, who acted as his
seconds, with Bernard Treanor, were all
placed under nrrest.
What effect this ring fatality will have
on the coming Jeffries and Johnson fight
is causing speculation among fight fans
After sixteen rounds of' clever and
hard fighting, with little to choose
, bt-tween the men fhf, Tti ltiohtir ain-iimr a
right with tremendous force that landed '
squarely on the local fighter's Jaw.
McCarthy dropped to the canvas as If hit
with a hammer, his head striking the floor.
He was quickly carried to hla coiner,
where he lay rigid. Restoratives were ad
ministered, but without effi-ct. Finally
"Spider" Kelly, the chief second, becoming
alarmed, hastily summoned two doctors
who were In attendance at the ringside.
Powerful stimulants were applied to the
unconscious boxer, but there were no vmp
toniB of returning consciousness. After
twenty minutes had passed and McCarthy
showed no signs of life a hasty examina
tion was made.
Dr. J. M. Meyers then announced that
McCarthy was suffering from a fractured
skull, with possible Internal hemorrhage. At
11 p. m., twenty-five minutes after the
knockout, the Injured fighter was hurried
Into a waiting auiomoblle and whisked to
fit. Mary's hospital, a few blocks from the

BIG MEET OF HIGH SCHOOLS
Over Two Hundred Athletes Will
Compete In Interarholastla
ISventa on Nebraska Field
LINCOLN, April 30.-(Speclal.)-InJurla
to two of the record holders on the Ne
braska track team have practically shat
tered all chances that Coach Cherrlngton'8
athletes ever had of winning either of the
dual meets this spring or of making even
a respectable showing In the Missouri val
ley conference meet at Des Moines In June.
Amberson and Andeisoa each sustained
severe Injuries In training on the new
cinder path over a week ago, while It waa
In the course of construction, which hav
made it a certainty that neither of them
will be able to do any such work as has
been expected of them.
The special events for Anderson and
Amberson were the half mile and two-mile
runs, respectively. In the meet with Kan
sas last spring Amberson clipped off a
second or two In his race, and at the
Omaha Indoor meet the first of this month
Amberson lowered the Cornhuskor record
In the two-mile by going the distance In 2:56.
His race at Omaha marked him aa a man
who would win this race against both j
Kansas and Minnesota, Amberson stood aa
excellent chance of getting the half mil
race In both of theso meets.
Slight as Uie Injuries to these two men
appeared at first, when each of the runner
stepped on a raised pack of cinders, they
have proved serious enough to keep the
men from training, and Coach Cherrt-rftoa
now declares It will be Impossible for the
athletes to get Into form to run their re- '
spectlve races In fast time. Amberaon'a
ankle crippled him and he has not been
with the squad for several days. Ander- '
son's right leg has caused him to limp for
two weeks and there 1b no chance of hla
getting Into the running for several days.
Will De in the Meets. '
Coach Cherrington says the two cripples
will probably recover sufficient form bo
that they may be used In both the dual
meets, but he thinks neither of them will
stand any chance In the meets with either
Minnesota or Kansas. In the half mils
run McGowan will have to take Anderson's
place as the leading runner. Mellck will
be about the only runner whom the coach
can depend upon to run the two mile.
The crippling of the two star runners of
the long distance events has discounted all
the plans that Coach Cherrington had
laid for making a respectable showing In
the coming meets. He never had hoped
to win' either of the dual meets with Ne
braska's strongest rivals, but he has been
planning right along to sent a team to the
conference meet In June that would sur
prise all the other schools. He had fig
ured on his long distance runners for many
points and had expected that some of his
men might score In the shorter dashes.
Two places In meet of the long distance
runs had even been his dream, and he had
many reasons for building his castles.
But now the best tnat he can dream of
doing with his team this year Is to win the
triangular meet with South Dakota and
Mornlngsllo at Sioux City next Saturday.
Yet, he has no high hopeB of defeating the
Morningside athletes In that meeting un
less South Dakota happens to have certain
men who are better than the Sioux City
athletes In Just tho events In which Ne
braska la extremely weak.
Only one thing Is causing the Corn
huskers to look forward to the meet next
Saturday with a display of Interest and
that Is opportunity which will be afforded
them of learning Just what their repre
sentatives can do. Most of the material
that the head coach will send Into the first
meet of the year will be new and untried.
For this reason tho exhibition of the ath
letes will be watched with close attention
by all who are following the work of the
First I.lne-l'p tilven Ont.
For the first time this spring Coach
Cherrington has ventured to announce the
men whom he thinks will be his choice for
the respective events. He lias determined
Just whom he shall take to Sioux City
next week. In all his planning for the com
ing rrjit with the two northern colleges he
has left out of consideration both the
cripples, Amberson and Anderson, for ha
says It will bo Impossible for those two lads
to get Into form for the openln? test.
In the 100-yaid dash there Is but a single
runner who Is likely to count for the Corn
huskers. He is Reed, a young lad who has
hud but little experience In the century
run and who la making his first attempt
to score for the locul school In that race.
He is doing excellent work for his con
dition and may spring a surprise before the
close of the season. Ho was timed In prac
tice this week and went the distance In
ten, flat. He Is slow at tho start, but runs
the lust halt of the distance In very fast
Reed will be about the lone dependablt
In the 2:M-yard dash, also. He runs this dis
tance In very fast time. Campbell, a runnel
uf last spring, who was entered In butt,
the 100-yard and 220-yard dashes will prob
ubly be second man for both these runi
this spring. He has been handicapped In hit
training this spring by sickness and ha
been at practice only a few times. He d!4
very good work last season, but will liavt
a hard time attaining the form he dis
played them. Ankeny and Powers are train
ing for this event, but as yet have not dis
played varsity form.
For tho 440-yard run It looks as though
Nebraska lias a record breaker in Captain
Burke, who last spring tied the Nebraska
record in the Kansas meet. Ho Is a power
ful runner for this ex'.remely hard raoa
