They had tin horns and megapauncs. and as livey w.-r... a lasty-lunged crowd, they fairly made the place ring every time that Kerns landed a telling blow. Gross is a dealer in old bottles, and is well known to every saloon owner and. barkeeper almost in the city, as it is with these people that he lias dealings in following his cailiny. He a jolly, good-natured lellow. load of joking and skylarking and is w-!l liked by everybody who knows h;::i. When Gross heard that Kerns'.-, followers were to be out in tore- to root for the western man h- was determined not to be oubione and e hired a brass band and early in the evening of the contest he paraded the principal down-town streets at the head of the band. Gross was dressed in a swell suit of clothes and wore a high hat. At the head of the band he entered the boxing club, ami it is safe to say that never before in the history of boxing in Philadelphia did a boxe!' tnakc a grander entry into a local boxing hall. The principal attraction ' the- nigh' was the contest between Jack Rlaokhurn ami Joe Grim, ami between ihe two events the place was packed to suffocation, and early in the evening the police compelled the proprietor to stop selling rickets, and several hundred sports anxious to gain admission were turned away ;j.;k1 even newspaper mm who came lite were refused admittance. Just before Gross and Kerns started to box the former was presented with a big floral horseshoe. It was not an emblem of good foe nrnss toct the mutest in ihp fourth round, the bout being stopped to prevent his being knocked out. The band played its loudest every time Gross landed a good punch, and the Kerns rooters, with their tin bonis and megaphones, tried to rirewn .it out when the western man sot in a. blow. When the end came in the fourth round Kerns's iusiy-lunged henchmen broke loose, ami th" place was in an uproar. No championship decision ever rendered in the country .was greeted with more noi--e and good-natured racket than Hob Kerns's victory over Ed.

NOW CItOKER FIGURES IN NEW YORK BASEBALL. BILLIARD SHARPS ALL SIDE-STEPPING HOPPE. (Special Dispatch to The Tree Press.) New York. January 21. Senator Jim Frawley, the heroic young man who has threatened for years past to rescue the noble art of self-defense from its present unpleasant position of enforced retirement and stealth, has again disclosed the real object of his flowery orations. Regularly at the beginning of every session of the legislature Frawley has announced that he had a bill ready for introduction calculated to restore the sport to the legal favor it enjoyed during the life of the Horton law. Then, when his measure has been examined, it has been found to provide for boxing bouts under the auspices of the Amateur Athletic union. This has been the result of his efforts the present season. The Frawlev mountain groaned and brought forth the A. A. U. mouse. Of course it would not prove a mouse fm- ttio Jim Sullivan and his coterie, providing such a bill got through. No one in this state would be able to hold a boxing bout without first geting the sanction of the genial James. First of all. an ambitious promoter would have to organize an A. A. U. tnh -o-,,i -ret into the told, after which. if his credentials were acceptable to 1 ne seniai james, itr imtiiii b;. t mit to hold bouts. It would be a delightful thing for Sullivan, and tha money that he and his clique would make out of the same would enable all to purchase cottages at the seashore in very short order. The pretense that the sport under the A. A. U. would be conducted on a purely amateur basis is the baldest tommvrot. For years the chief source of revenue of the A. A. U. was derived from the boxing tournaments held bv the organization, and there, was not a bona fide amateur in the entire union. When they received medals they pawned them, but more freouentlv they were paid for their services in coin of the realm. This suited them much better, as it saved them the annoyance' of r-oing to tne pawnshops. Finally the thins became such a stench in the nostrils ot th nubile that Father Bill Curtis sudden; lv disqualified 400 of the "amachoors. a'nd brought the game to a standstill. The "amachoors" were compelled to soout and fight with their brother professionals, instead of masquerading as amateurs. At the present time there are no amateur boxers in the city,' and to talk of putting the sport into Sullivan's bands on the plea that it will be conducted on a high plane ot amateur purity is a nowling farce. It would simply be putting the game i o boxing into the hands of a clicttie. an t is doubtful if the legislature, will repeat that blunder. . The expenenee with the Horton law -was a sad one What was deemed to be a wildly sensational story has just been given publicity here by a morning paper. It K to the effect that Richard Croker i"s the real owner of the National i'ei"iic ball club in this city and that Andrew Frecdman is merely h agent in the cond.ict of the or-amzation That ' is ancient history, but it has charms for those not in the game here when Frepdman sot control ol u n-.ajoritv 0f the stock of the New York ep-b That happened in 1S94. and was the forerun oer of tempestuous times for the league as a bodv. Although 15. IS. Tuleott was an enthusiastic supporter ot the game, yet he found it took too much of his valuable time. He was enga ed in malting a million in Wall street, and so he decided to sell out his baseball holdings and Tot out of the game. Ho told a reporter that he would sell his shares for fifty cento on the dollar, and the statement was printed. Freedman was then in a la a- office and had iust done very well as the receiver of the Manhattan Athletic club. Through Peter F. Meyer Free'i-man had become acquainted with Croker. and the Tammany chief took a fancv to the young man. When Freedman's eye felt on the Talcott proposition. Ho at once went to Croke" and got the cap'tal necessary to buy a controlling interest in the club. There is no rea-on to believe that Croker has ever relinquished his ownership of the shares that his money then pur chased. Frecdman has .since got into the subway and is new a very wealthy man. so that he dot's nut need tho bnseboH money. Ol' course, the announcement Ilia! Brush bought the club from Freedman was provocative of merriment among those who knew the Inside facts. Brush is simply the paid manager of the club, and in addition h? holds some stock that he acquired. Ions before Freedman got Into the game. There is a disposition on the part of some of the billiard fossils in this neighborhood to belittle Willie Hoppe, who is anxious to play some of thS fossils fur a side stake. One of them recently made the slurring remark thai aits' of the first class players could casilv .discount the boy. 1m-mediatelv following that assertion the little fellow beat Ed MeLairthlin 300 or 400 points in l,iO). and then defeat .1 Sehaefer by 1.200 to 909. Of course the boy and ihe Wizard are on an exhibition tour, and the games are Mot fought as desperately as though for money. The youth is naturally playing as hard . as he knows how. and while Schaefer may not be breakitur his neck to win. yet he would not permit the kid to make a "show" of him. However, none of the first class players will be asked to discount Hoppo, and anv of them who can beat him on even terms will be able to make a lot of money. Slossou sidestepped the bov and indications are not lnckins- that others will follow suit. Nothing can prevent Hoppe from winning the championship of tha world within the next year or two.

C. of Lansing had offered a J5.000 purse to Tommy -Ryan and Jack O'Brien for a bout for the middleweight championship, to be decided in, June, the contest to be in the daytime, at the Lansing ball park. Some folksvgreeted the announcement with smiles, but subsequent events proved that the story, as first printed in these columns, was correct. It was substantiated both by the matchmaker of the club and by the financial backer of the organization. And in this connection it may be said that no boxing club out in the state has as substantial backing as has the Lansing organization, which has the local trolley system with it. Ihe street railroad man behind the. club is both wise and game, and when, he announced that he stood by the Ryan and O'Brien offer he meant every woid that he said. The bout would he one of the most attractive that could lie arranged, and the offer, $5,000. is a perfectly safe one. if the club is certain that it can pull off a match under the conditions that it has named. Lansing would draw from both Detroit and Chicago, as well as from all over Michigan and from the various big cities of the middle west. The Metropolitan A. C. working in a nan wnose seaians wvawny necessarily much more limited than a baseball park, could well afford to offer the same purse for the same match, if the peculiar conditions under which the good people of Michigan live did not make one city's pastime another city's crime. Lansing has a show this week, on Thursday night, this being the first of four contests of considerable importance scheduled before Michigan clubs inside six days. Dick Fitzpat-rick, who got a decision over Otto Sie-loff at Kalamazoo a decision that has caused some criticism is to meet Jack Robinson, another Chicago boy, in the main event. Robinson is not well known this way, but in Chicago is said to be fast and to be a willing mixer. Fitzpatrick is a husky youth, and save Martin Duffy a good battle at St. Louis last Tuesday, where the boys went to a draw. Some surprise was manifested when it was announced two or three weeks 'ago that Joe Cherry had been matched back with Harry Forbes for the Saginaw club. VVhen the boys had their previous meeting, a couple of months ago. Forbes scored a decisive victory over the home boxer, Cherry's seconds being forced to toss up the sponge in the thirteenth to stop a beating that Joe had been taking from along in the fifth round. It has since been claimed by partisans of Cherry that his defeat was due not so much to superior ability of Forbes as to the weakening effect of weight making. For the bout of next Friday the scale is made 122 pounds, as against liu on the previous occasion. There is no question that the heavier weight is the lightest that Joe can do now, to be lit and strong, and the interest will he in noting how much two pounds handicapped Cherry on the occasion of the earlier meeting. In Saginaw they claim that Joe is a great deal stronger than he was before, and also that he is developing a punch that he did not show against Forbe3. In Cherry's home town there is no doubt that the mill will draw better than had Joe been matched with some boxer who never had beaten him. If Cherry keeps away from the punch with which Forbes beat him last time, the spectators will see a pretty bout. Forbes is slow to do business with the National Sporting club, of London, which has been trying, to match him with Bowkcr, but which offers him a smaller' purse than he can demand on this side of the water, without losing a month or so of time traveling nearly 7,000 miles. Cherry would like to beat Forbes, because he thinks that th" English club would be willing' to consider him in Harry's place. It Is said that Frankie Dwyer. one time a Saginaw boy, now a sporting man. better known in London than In his home town, is willing to take Cherry abroad if he can heat Forbes. Bowkcr is a much harder puncher than Cherry, and. is clever. Joe would have a hard time doing weight for the English lad. Tt is a safe statement that the Metro-oolltan Athletic club will not open its doors during the present winter, and that the local boxing public must content itself with what is offered by the other clubs and it may be stated that the minor club matchmakers are framing un some cards that call for no scornful smiles. The D. A. C. will be first in the line of the locals, with the Snracklin-Miiler match one week from Monday. That's a bout that ought to pack the clubhouse. On the following evening Delray will open its doors, with Coffey and Sieloff in a return bout, the Cobb-Coffey match having been called off for the present. Anyone who saw Sieloff and Coffey in their previous contest knows that the bout will be well worth the ride to Delray. On the next evening the head-soinners will entertain at the D. A. o.. teeakes and Cutcher being down for their return match that night. For one week that is packing things pretty e.loselv. There are other clubs to be heard" from on February shows. The Wheelmen will get into line as soon as the new entertainment committee ts selected. The Polish-American club haa threatened to run another show, tmf has not made good as yet. It is supposed, also, that the Hillside A. C. will have a card of bouts at some time in February, though no official announcement has been made. This eluh was verv lucky in that It had Smith and Thompson on ia Monday's bouts. This pair gave . atf exhibition of pure walloping that saved a show that otherwise would have been queered by Scheer's sudden discovery j The Latest Method Treatment ts a heaven-sent boon to nervous sufferers. There ro scores and hundreds of persons suffer-lae- from severe nervous disorders resulting fmm mTvnrir hum', worry, business and Wodtiward Ave. that hj didn't care to go any further, In the third round. Several local matchmakers had something on Referee Ryan in this bout. He stopped at "ten" when he counted out Scheer. All of the other matchmakers kept on to "twenty-three." That record of Dick EMand's the lad's real name, by the is Willie Murine printed in The Free Press a few days ago, caused the local students of form to sit up and take notice. A boy who can score more than thirtv knockouts in forty-three four-round bouts must have something in him. The record will give real interest here to the Neil-Hyland mill, which is set lor January 31. During the present week there are a number ot bouts ot interest all over the country. 1 nese, as usual, will be considered in the Monday issue of The Free Press, which will present its customary list pt events for information of the light fans. ' Our boys the Tigers are a little slow in getting into line. That, in fact, is the case with most of the American league teams, with the possible exception of Boston, winch isn't asking its players to stand for a cut.

EVER THINKS SAYS HE IS STILL GOQD FOB MAJOR LEAGUE TWIRLING. Edclie Siever, the local twirlcr who seems destined to be forced back to the minors through an arrangement hi- which he. with Mike Kahoe, is released by St. Louis to Indianapolis, isn't mightily pleased with the prospect. Not that he has any objections to Indianapolis city or club-but that he does think his trip back into the association is a premature thing. Siever claims that he can catch on in the National league if the. American is done with him, and says he would like a try in the big circuit before going to a minor league club. The tno vears (hat Siever spent in St, Louis were not good ones. He never had the form with the Browns that he showed his last year with Detroit, though he pitched some brilliant 1U at times. In 1302. as a 1 1-ger twirler, he was the steadiest lett hander in the country, and was one of the leaders in the. matter of percentage of runs and base, hits made off him. He was bad in a thirteen inning game that he pitched against Waddell. at Bennett park. His arm gave out along towards the ninth, and ho asked to be taken out. He was ordered to keep on. He had nothing left, and he lobbed it oyer and trusted to luck, finallv being beaten out The strain of the long game hurt his arm. He did not get baok to form that fall, and was let St. Louis got ready-to release Bieyer last surhmer. but was forced to hold him, the other ' pitchers coins baa.

In other words, Michigan is getting ready for the spring athletics. Trainer Fitzpatrick is up against about the hardest proposition in his lite to make Michigan again a champion on the track and if he can turn the trick it will look as if he had a corner on the wizard business. With only two men Nicol and Garrels who are left here of Michigan's point winners in the conference meet OL 1D04, things do not look bright, especially when these two men barely succeeded in getting under the "oats" money. But Fitz has been stacked up against it almost as hard in some of the past years and his grit and determination have been productive of wonderful results in makin.g some well touted favorites from outside see the heels of the Michigan runners. Un Work for Candidates. Just now 100 men are working gut daily in the gym, and that loejts encouraging to Michigan's peerless trainer. The biggest bunch are enrolled in the distance runs. The great success which Michigan has had in the mile and two-mile events has naturally aroused a great deal of interest In this department, and the practical assurance that Michigan would again send a team to the. Pennsylvania invitation meet has served as a magnet to draw out a large number of candidates who desire to lug away gold watches from Philadelphia during the latter part of April. Michigan has won the four-mile relay national championship two years in succession, and it is only athletic etiquette to send another team to defend that title. So large has the number of distance runners become that Trainer Fitzpatrick has been obliged to divide the men In three squads, so that the track will not be overcrowded. Of the new men. Schenk, of Chelsea, has shown the greatest Improvement In stepping into varsity company. Schenk ran second to Hogenson in the state interscholastic meet last year. His greatest fault was in not getting a fast start, and a man who cannot get off the mark at the crack of the pistol is generally among the "also rans" In the sprinting class. Fitzpatrick has seen the possibilities of Schenk and has shown him the new kinks in getting away. Now the youngster runs well along with Keeler and will be a ten-second man before his college career is done. Annis. another freshman, gives good promise of being a fast one. In the hurdles. Nicol is working faithfully and shows much Improvement over Inst year's form in skim-mine the fences like a McLean Or a Maloney. lie is likely to push Catlln of Chicago harder than he did last year. Johnny Garrels, notwithstanding his 197 pounds, has taken u liking to the hurdle game, and he may be seen going over the bars this year. Mcliols Good at Polo Vault. It looks as If Walter FIshleigh, the all-around man, who has returned to colleee, will negotiate a good height at pole vaulting. With little practice he did 10 feet 6 inches Saturday. That is only two inches 'short of his best Indoor record, and considering the time of the season, is really an encouraging performance. Garrels, Dunlap and Ackerman aro working with the 16-pound shot. The latter is a freshman from Mercers-bur- academy, and is doing 40 feet. Carter, the 240-pound guard of the football team, has signified his Intention of trying for the shot-put event. He has never attempted the stunt, but says he Is willing to try and see if he can make good. Said Keene Fitzpatrick: "Really, I have not had an opportunity as yet to get a line on the new men. Niexl Saturday I will give the entire squad a preliminary work out for the express purpose of seeing what our TRANS! EUlilili SliUVlJiK. When they did put him in to help the other boxmen he proceeded to pitch as good ball as any man in the country, pitching eight good games ft wind up the season. He lost to Detroit. 2 to 1. won from Philadelphia. 4 to 2. won from Boston, 3 to 0. lost to Chicago, 1 to 0, won. from . Clwe-land. 1 to 0. lost to New York, 7 to 2. lost to.

Bright Baseball Outlook. But every cloud has a silver lining and while track athletic prospects look gloomy, the outlook for a winning baseball team-one that will land the western championship are bright indeed. Michigan will probably have the finest line of pitchers In the west . or a number of years the mainstays in the box for ihe ..U. of M. have been Detrolters. It seems to be a sort pt heritage for Detroit to have the mam squeeze of the university baseball team.

They are Martin and Finnerty and their names alone sound as if they could go some in the basketball game. Martin pitched for Leland Stanford two years ago and Finnerty did the box work for the Santa Clara preparatory school. Lew McAllister, the coach, will riot get a crack at his pupils until the middle of next month, but the seventy -five candidates for the team are itching for a chance to get at the work and occasionally a little catching practice is indulged In. Wtih eight veterans as a nucleus and a -big bunch"of willing and promising material, McAllister ought to be able to grind out something of a team that will remind the old fans of the. days when Michigan was as successful on the diamond as she is now on the gridiron. Eastern Tribute to Michigan, The eastern papers are throwing kisses at Michigan over the action In the Rose case. The following is taken from the New Haven Register, published at the home of exclusive i'ale. "It seems as it this was a case which "shows up the western universities in a different light than the east is in the habit of regarding some of them. No eastern college ever gave an example of a stiffer backbone than Michigan has in the present case. Rose is one of the greatest athletes in the country. He was the mainstay of the track team and was calculated as a coining star in the foot-boll rushline at Michigan. Tet there was not a moment s hesitation In his case Out he went when it was shown that he had broken the rule. universities have wobbled sadly when ; the test came.

BigtaHttohllliMii METROPOLITAN TURF TOPICS EAST HAVING ITS OWN FLURRY OVER RACING DATES. BELIEF IS WESTERN WAR WILL BE A SHORT ONE. TWO STATES MAY BE ADDED TO THE RUNNING LIST. ( Special Dispatch to The free Press.) New York. January 21. While New York racing men have been watching and talking about the dispute over racing dates in the west., which may-develop into a disastrous racing war. a bad mix-up over dates has developed in our own midst, so to speak, .which, while it will not develop into any thing like" a war. has, all the same, given the racing powers more than one unpleasant nuaiwi i hour, and will give them many more before it is straightened out. J It all comes about through the ouild- , Rtmnnt iiri und the tranBier to the new traek of the racing engagements of the Westchester association Mr. Belmont, who is the head of the new enterprise, wants the dates sev aside for the Morris park track, heretofore, but Dan Hennen Morris says no. He wants those dates for the Ne' York Jockey club. If his claim that the dates of a right belong to the track and not to the association, thwij the only way dates can be assigned for the Belmont park track is by cu-ting down the allotment of the otuer metropolitan concerns, and each of these declare that they have not a-day they can spare, inasmuch as the racing period in this state is limited by law, the season cannot be extended, even if any of the recognized tracks wanted dates before or after the present season, which they do not. The best judgment of racing men is that Belmont Park will get the dates and the Morris Park combination will be frozen out. It is the sincere wish of eastern racing men that the western situation could be cleared up without a ught, but there seems to be little hope for this consummation. In fact, uews from sources which niay be considered reliable is to the effect that racing will begin at the Panama, track early next month, and- with a tirst-class lot of horses. I understand that the new jockey club will be formally organized next week, and that it will certainly Include . Maw OHMng kscay Park. Hot Spiings, Churchill Downs. Louisville, iiawcnorne aim nwui. "u pes haps Washington Park. Chicago, with Lexington, Nashville.- Kansas City and Union Park. St. Louis, strong probabilities. With such a list the new organization will be a powerful one. If the war does not become too bitter, it is thought here .v.. ,k, nn nf fi?htine will satisfy all hands, and next season a compromise win oe renuueu. New Jersey and Pennsylvania may soon be added to the list of racing states. I understand that in .both states bills are under consideration legalizing racing on the model of the New '"York state law and with fair chance of success in both. I am inclined to believe If such action is taken in New Jersey two or more tracks can be made successful if run for the small owners wno nna tne metropolitan circuit too strenuous. In Pennsylvania both Philadelphia and Pittsburg could easily support first-class tracks andhave high-class racing. For several months there has been considerable talk of Senator Joseph W. Bailey, .of Texas, breaking into the running game. It is true that he has contemplated such a move, and has taicen in several head of runners, but he will make no particular effort for the present, as he regards it a rich man's game, and claims not to have enough ready cash to make a success of it. According to his notions, an expressed during his last visit to Lexington, Ky., he thinks that for a man to make a success at breeding thoroughbreds he must have at least $100,000 which he is prepared to sink in It. a stallion of great reputation, and at least a score of high-class, well tried brood mares to begin, with. Without such a foundation, Senator : Bailey declares, it would, be useless to compete against such established breeders as J, B. Haggln, owner of the Rancho del Paso and Elmendort studs; August Belmont, of the Nur-i set" stud; J- R- Iteene, of the Castle- ton stud: Milton Youne. of the Mc- frathtanet. stud, and others of that OtoM. , , , Among' the -westenjers jrtio are go tar to tnake an eastera canipaign dur- PATJT ONE. ing the coming season is w. v den.
