',J?AN FRANCISCO. June 21-1 have yet
to .read a "statement" from Jack' John
eon in which reference is not made to
the terrible mauling that awaiu Jim
Flynn at Las. Vega on July 4.
Now, one might think that, having so
much the better of the prospect from
the ordinary methods of doping out
pugilistic results, Jack could afford to
be" both chivalrous, and "magnanimous
acg refrain from the threatening lan
guage that emanate from his . training
camp every few days. Jack is' laying
himself open to the suspicion that he is
not as consummately confident about the
July scrap si he pretends to be. ; ;
Qne thing is certain, however. If Jack :
isihent upon Intimidating Flynn,' his ef-:
forts will fall flat, for Flynn Is a feUow j
wnpse courage Is undaunted. Pity it is
that his other fighting qualifications are
. not on a par with Ms grit If they were j
he- would permit some of us to think j
more kindly of his chances. - ; v
, For weal or woe, Jim will surely battle
like a tiger when he goes against the
champion. And even If he succeeds -no
better than he did when he faoed the
big colored man In Ban Francisco In No
. vrmber, 19OT, he will command the respect
; of the spectators. For a tribute ef praise
I is never withheld from the ring man
who puts up a bravs struggle In the .face
of the overpowering odds. ; -
, 1, Just now the sports of San Francisco
are refreshing their memories In con
nection with the last eleven-round bout
between Johnson and Flynn at Coff
roth's arena. They recall that Flynn tried
to fight close from the first smash of
the gong and that even when tossed
back by the force of Johnson's uppercuts
he returned to the charge again and
again. He fought, right into Johnson's
hands. In fact All the big negro had to
do was to set himself to meet Flynn's
rush and the unfortunate fireman kept
hurling himself on the spears. : vv.
. Friends of Flynn OuUide the ropes
fool friends they surely wers-kspt urg
ing the fireman to leap at Johnson, and
Flynn did so unflinchingly. And for fear
Flvnn might forget that he, was feeing
urged . to Jump at the cannon's mouth,
Johnson, with sneering sarcasm, kept
'"Come on, Flynn. They're telling you
Flynn took a fearful whaling that day
and took it like a Spartan. He was
bruised and battered, but full of fighting
spirit deer to the finish. ' '
Toward the end of the tenth round
the last but one he glared good-humor,
edly at Johnson out of his undamaged
eye and with a shake of the head re
marked. "You're a clever guy.''
In the very next round, while still
hurling himself at Johnson, Flynn bumped
x into the uppercut which brought hlro face
downward to the floor. He was game to
. M last ditch. . .""' .
f i l to wonder If that affair oarrted
Three. Stars, Kept Out 6f, 'Spotlight by Lagging. Teams,.;
-o tfvF'W- WK1 he go at the
stalwart negroid the sams fashion and
run the risk of Impaling himself upon
the same old hooka , and uppercuts, or
will he dsnce around and -insist upon
Johnson making the pace. And in this
connection It can truthfully be said that
Johnson's biggest successes more par
ticularly . when opposed to shorter men
than himself have , been achieved .-by
taunting the other man into doing .the
rushing. Johnson's long suit Is taking
care. of the lads who tear after him.
Flynn has said many times that he is
building upon the effects that a couple
of '.years of fast living have had upon
Johnson. Of course it. wilt require a
hrid. bustling fight to- tell whether
Jensen's stamina has been depleted, but
It must be said that the photographs of
J on taken since he began training
do" not carry any suggestion that the
c: zjnpton will prove less of a strong man
ti ' n hs was two years ago. When Peter
Ja ison returned from England ant h
g n ' to train for his contest with Jim
Jeffries, It . was noticed that , the Aus
tralian negro's shoulder knobs had flat
tened to some extent and that the mus
cles of his upper frame generally bad
softened. , .
There Is no suspicion of muscular de
generation " In' Johnson's case, if " the
camera has pictured him faithfully. He
tiv the same, big bleeps, powerful shoul
isTs and bulging back muscles ha had
when he .boxed Jeffries 'at Reno.
To put it In a nutshell, there la not a
thing about Johnson to favor the sus
picion that he, has , deteriorated physio-
ally. For all that, however, the . two
ars sojourn on Easy street may have
taken something out ef him. For Flynn's
sake It is to be hoped that such Is the
case, , -

NEW TORK. June 22.-An expensive
stone In a cheap setting Is no more out
of place than a start ball player with a
tallend club. The pitiful part of it Is the
hopelessness of his situation. ' There Is
s chance for some one to buy the, dia
mond and. have; It reset; there Is no
chance fora tallend club to part with a
star under any consideration. At times
this almost leadst one to doubt the; wis
dom at least the Justice of the reserve
clause of organized base, ball contracts
that binds humati property to club own-
ers Indefinitely. : . '
One does not have to look around very
far to find plenty of base ball Idols
worthy of pity. ! Two of the greatest
pitchers the : game ' has ever developed
have for years hidden their lights under
a bushel, said bushel belng'support riot
fast enough to get 'out of the way of a
truck. Nap Bucker of the Dodgers was
king of the southpaws of the National
league until "Rube" Marquard de
throned him. If." this ' pair swapped
clubs how about it then? Do you think
that Marquard,' brilliant as he Is, could
go on day after day throughout a whole
season to a brilliant record with a club
that was as' likely as not Jo boot away
yie only run of, the game In the ninth
Inning? Walter - Johnson, the speediest
pitcher since Rusie. has won about half
Washington's . games the ' last several
years. Until this season his case was Iden
tical with that of Rucker, Johnson has a
better club behind him this year and a
better lot of slab mates. The result Is
Washington's sensationally unexpected
right among ths top-notchers. v
s.Closer at homo we may find a . few
examples. . There are three or four with
Wolverton's Highlanders. Russell Ford,
"Birdie" Cree and Harry Wolter would
look bad on any championship" club,
wouldn't they? With a club that finished
sixth In 1911 Ford won twenty-two and
lost eleven games. In 1810, Ms first sea.
son out with the tag shows, Russ peeled
off twenty-sl victories against six de
feats. This year, with a club that is In
the dumps,, he seems destined for little
better than average rating. Cree hit .0
last season for a. club that went about
Its work "every man for himself.". He
was also one of the best base runners 'n
the big show and this was with no assist
ance irom nis mates, wolter, laid up a
great deal through sickness,, was never
theless one of the best all around gar
deners In the national pastime, ; v
Hal Chaser like Ty Cobb, has estab
llshed such a. reputation for himself that
he would corns In for his lion's share
of glory If he were' to play with a lass
Z outfit. Chase has come to be regarded
as an Insltutlon. There la no doubt that
he was one of the greatest diamond sen
sations of the, age. As a kid breaking In
he made "Jlggs" Donohue and Fred Ten
ney look as If they were rooted .to the
ground. . Chase played the greatest ball
of his career In 1911 as manager of the
Highlanders. .. This spring he has been
very, backward in striking his gait owing
to a long spell of sickness. When he
does get right and as long as he stays
right Hal Chase will be the king of all
first sackers. ;'-,, ".-,: '.-v-;.
Many will tell you even now that Chase
ranks second to Jake Daubert.' And her
ws are getting back to our theme of
stellar performers not fullly appreciated
because . of environment.: s Certainly the
boosters of the Brooklynlu have every
reason just now to assume this attitude
Next to Chase, Daubert Is the finest
fielding' piece of work . in organised base
ball. . He is every blt'as handy ,at kill
ing off sacrifice hits, though' he is not
so quick.- He has a wonderfully accurate
throwing arm. and Is much surer In both
his pegs and clutches. While Hal pulls
more sensational stuff thst any two con
temporaries, he also, muffs more easy
tosses than any three. . The hardest sort
of 'wild chucks he nails with pne hand
and simply eats up . apparently impos
sible pickups. Daubert has neither the
reach nor the range of, Chase; conse
quently, his infield takes a trifle' more
care. In throwing than do the Yankees.
Where Daubert lays It all over Chase
this year Is In hitting. Jake, has been
going along at a terrific clip and after
more than two months of the fight 'has
been left behind finds himself well above
the .350 mark. He is a pretty shifty fel
low on the paths, too, and If with a club
that was encouraged to, use : Its speed.
would undoubtedly be a base runner of
more than average ability. Daubert Is
a far better ball player this season than
he was last and in 1911 he was GO per
cent better than In 1910. He'll, be better
still In 1913 for he Is learning all the time.
He has to learn for he is pot a genius like
Chase. ; But he'll wear Hal's crown If the
latter doesn't wake up prety soon.

His Victory Otcv Carl Morris
Waa ihe Climax of Several
Months of Hard -
CHICAGO. June 2l-Luther McCarty,
the youthful - giant who surprised the
world by tumbling Carl Morris to the
ring floor, Is not the fortunate child of
a lucky punch, as some' have Intimated.
Rather he la the embodiment of all that
goes to make the -ring champion, the
possessor of speed, hitting ability, an
aptitude for learning the finer points of
the fistio sport, and one of the gamest
men; who ever laced on a glove. His
vlctoryxover Carl Morris was the climax
of months of training, with one object
in view, that of defeating the big en
gineer. At' no" Urns had hi any doubt of
tho result of the contest with .Morris.,
Ons way In which Luther McCarty was
fortunate was In being substituted tor
Garry Goets of Chicago an an opponent
for Jos Cox at Springfield, Mo., last De
cember. He was also fortunate tn meet
tng up with Billy McCarney. who Is now
directing his affairs. Another fortunate
happening In the career of McCarty was
the meeting with Tommy Burns, ex
champion heavyweight of the world, at
Calgary, British Columbia,, In April, 1911.
McCarty had not taken the boxing game
seriously at that time, but after seeing
Mm In action Burns took it upon' him
elf to tell McCarty that a. brilliant fu
ture awaited, him If he took care of him
self. It was this talk with Tommy
Burns that-induced McCarty to. take, up
the boxing gam with the avowed pur
pose of making a name for himself. ,
In January, 1911. . McCarty got his first
chance. Watt Adams, known as the Ca
nadian ,- heavyweight . ensmpion, . was
booked to fight ".rYank" Kenny of Chi
cago. Mccarty came to uumertson to see
the bontvonvthe iday before the bout
Kenny disappeared. - McCarty was asked ;
to go on as a substitute and he readily
agreed. He , put Adams to sleep in the
seoond round. -1 Watt then engaged Mc
Carty to aocompany s him pn a tour
through lower Canada.. On April 4 they
arrived In Calgary, B. C .'and there they
encountered Joe Orlm-the '"Philadelphia
Iron Man." Grim offered to fight any
man In the world and McCarty took him
on.r McCarty won Ih the fourth round.
, It was after ths bout with Grim that
Tommy Burns, the former heavyweight
champion;' advised McCarty to take ear
of h!mself,.predlctlng that he would some
day be a champion, and McCarty for th
first time began to take boxing seriously
From that s flay to the' present McCarty
has been gathering knowledge wherever
he "could, get it, being always ready V)
box anyone.-.-;' -v.' -.i..; '":'-
The - Adams-McCartv - combination
Worked back to Fargo, X. D., where they
dissolved partnership. "Twice h knocked
out a big heavyweight, who called, .him
self Al Withers of Boston, first on June
9 and then on July 4. Then he went to
work In a hotel and did no more boxing
v;U October 7. when he knocked out
X -imy Crawford of Philadelphia in tue
first round. The next -day he left for thf
east and reached Chicago, on October 10,
friendless and almost penniless. ; ,"
McCarney' Steps In. 5-
In the Windy City he sought out O'Con
nell's gymnasium, the haven of all boxers
in Chicago, and there he met Sig Han
at the time -manager of Jack. Johnson,
Hart got him a bout with Jack Heinen
of Chicago' at South Bend, Ind., on No
vember E0 last and McCarty won In, throi
rounds.. The. Hart-McCarty . combination
broke up after this bout and Billy Mo
Carney took hold of McCarty. - -
The next bout In which 'McCarty fig
ured was against Joe Cox at Springfield.
He had the latter practically out In' the
first round, but decided to give the spec
tators a "run for their money," so he
let the bout go six rounds before he 1 -
livered the knockout. Then came tw
bouts which McCsrty did not win. Jeff
Clarke of Philadelphia bested him, and
Harry Wuest of Cincinnati held him to o
draw after being floored twice in. the sec
ond round." McCarney . then engaged
Clarke as ; Instructor and McCarty has
shown wonderful Improvement In his four
bouts under Clarke's tutelage. ' ' . '. .'
Jack Harper of Kansas City lasted half
a round and' "Big Bill" Schults vt 8t
Louis stayed less than two minutes. Both
of these bouts were scheduled to go ten
rounds and were fought In ths same ring
where Carl Morris later met his Water
looo. One week prior to the bout with
Morris the young giant went, down t
Bartlesvllle, Okl.. and tucked away a big
fellow named Joe Hagen of' Denver ' In'
the third round.. '; ' ' 'V'
Then came the contest "with, Morris.
From the first bio lan'ded. ' a, straight,
solid left by, McCarty, that found a rest:
ing place on the smelling apparatus of
the famous Oklahoman, .the result was
never In doubt' From the beginning Mc
Carty outboxed .and outhlt the man who
was supposed to ln bark., the heavy
weight title, for the white race. Twice
once in '.the fourth' and. again in the fifth
round-MorrIp was nearly . dropped,; sav
ing himself by . grabbing his, youthful
opponent. In the. fifth" round Morris was
punished severely "and went, to his corner
in-Evident distress.;1 Th sixth saw the
"end of Morris as a factor In- pugilism.
He was jabbfd. hooked, upper-cut. and
buffeted around the5 rlng.; until McCarty,
seeing he had him ready for the finisher,
stepped back. '. just like - an 'old rlngster,
then snot, out a straight left, followed
with a lightning-like right upper . cut,
and Morris measured his, length on-thjs
canvas. It was the first time In his
career hs had, ever been. knocked off his
feet Even Jim, FVnn could not accom
pllsh this feat , , ...
Morris rolled around., tried to struggle
to his feet got as far as one kneW when
he , wabbled. - lurched " forward. and
steadied .himself with, his hand, on, the
Poor. He .was In this position whn
the retereen. declared McCarty ths victor.
This bout realty made McCarty, and he
Is now the . most talked-of white ,heavy
weight He has boon besieged with Offers,
but his manager,, Billy McCarney, is dis
posal to take Ws time, allow McCarty
further schooling' under Jeff Clarke, and
then go after the championship, " He
stands ready, however, - to- take on :' Al
Palser at once, then go after Jim Flj'nn
or Bombardier' Weir. .After that It will
be Jack 'Johnson, according to the pro
gram. 1 - -, - . -
