ORIS DITEB mim EDDIE TONY FAUST PROVES HIMSELF WITHOUT PEER AS 2-YEAR-OLD GREAT VICTORY HLLDRETH COLT EASILY DEFEATS A SPEEDY FIELD. Meada Wins at 40 to 1, Furnishing the Surprise of the Day. Tha warm sunshine of the past two ' days has had a wonderful effect upon I the condition of the track at Williams Park, and with Indications of mora fair ; weather, horsemen axe Jublllant over the prospect of a good track for the running of the New Year's Handicap on Tuesday next. The path is gradually ' widening, and It Is not unlikely that , there will be enough of the dry In evl-' denoa today to keep the overnight fields I well together. There were a few scratohes i yesterday, and the events had for ; starters In most cases, the original number carded to go. Yesterday the feature wal the bringing together Oi the crack , Tony Faust, F. v. Barr, Collector Jessup and Llsaro, In the Fallen Leaf Handicap, I over the Futurity Course. The attend- anoe waa far above the average and con- elderable money changed hands. FIRST RACE) The opening event eaw the defeat of Bedford from McCafterty's ' barn. This bird was made favorite In ' the six furlongs sprint for three.year-I olds and up. Escamado. at S to 1, turned 1 up the winner of this event, after look-i in hopelessly beaten, (Hersain shot to the front and was three lengths to the good' In the stretch, but Escamado came with a marvelous Durst or speed and : won going away. Hersain lasted long-' enough to get the plaoe from, Marie H. by Ave lengths. SECOND RACE Another favorite was bowled over when Cheers, held at 3 to 6, finished third. Bushthorpe, held ; at 8 to 1 in the betting, well ridden bv Knapp, had all the racmg luck and came I on the outsiae, got up to grab the purse . from Johnny Lyons, who in turn beat the ' fast tiring Cheers. The latter ran well , up the first part, but seemed to go all topieces when the pinch came. THIRD RAC7 Three favorites in a , row failed to gather when Lord Nelson finished second to Banposal In the Fu-' turlty Course sprint for three-year-olds. Iord Nelson with Miller up was held at 9 to 10, while Banposal was as good as S to 1 In the betting. S anta Ray was an easy third. FOURTH RACE The claim that Tony Faust Is the best colt In training In California was established beyond a doubt yesterday, when the Hlldreth two-year-old 1 defeated older horses aiter giving away ' weight to each of them. In the Fallen Leaf Handicap, over the Futurity course. Held at 16 to 5, and third choice In the -beting, Faust was badly overlooked ' and only a few bets went in on him. tne playing being on the other contenders. F. W. Barr was favorite but did not get any of the money finishing In Indifferently last. Tony Faust won easily I by two and one-half lengths with Col-- leotor Jessup second and Lisaro third. FIFTH RACE Another surprise was sprung on the unlucky publlo when i Meda,held at 40 to 1. easily took the one mile dash from El Chihuahua, the even-money favorite. Yellowstone sulked but got up In time to take the short end of the purse. , SIXTH RACE Anvil shot to the front as soon as the barrier was released, and ' Bimply spread-eagled his field, winning , as he pleased. Hooligan ran an improved reoe and got place money from the fast i coming Ray. Lord Nelson, the public's choice to take , the futurity course affair, dogged It bad-; ly. e The defeat of Cheers put a gloom over the talent after the Keene gelding met Us defeat In the seven-furlong dash. Banpasal, which won at 40 to 1 the other day. Is the same horse which won yesterday at 3 to 1. Trainer Dave Henry, you are tho real thing. Meada, which woo the mile dash, was the good thing that waa not bet on. Bill Curtis was In line again yester-day. The Emeryville contingent, headed by Owner Jack Case, mado a clean-up when Escamado fell from the clouds and won the curtain raiser in a common canter from Hersain. Puss Wright on Anvil was the eombl-. nation that went through in the closing : race. The Jungleltes were up against It when their Idol. F. W. Barr, had his measure taken in the handicap. The MIssourlans. who are lovers of the thoroughbred, should he jvroud of that good piece of horseflesh. Tony Faust. Clocker Larry Sullivan wired his clients Banpasal and Anvil yesterday.

The Thistles are a newly organized team, under the management of J. W. King of San Francisco, who claims to have a bunch of players that will take a lot of beating. The team comprises in part, men who are well-known to the football fans around about the bay, such as T. Lydon, J. Smith, T. McGregor, P. Turney, the Disher brothers and others. The Rovers will line up very strong, and tomorrow's team will, in all probability, be the ones to face the Independents a -week hence. Albion line-up will be as follows: Marru, al; John and Woodend, fullbacks; Ridehalgh, McLoughlln and McKiernan. halfbacks; Petrie, Milne, Anderson. Dingwall and Russell, for-words. Kick off at 2:30 p. m. C. W. Irish, referee. OAKLANDS TO TRAIN IN nODESTO Judge McCreedie has decided to send his bunch of ball players to Modesto to train for coming season. The team will sart practicing at Modesto on the first of March. The personnel of the team has baen considerably changed and few of the old faces will be seeen the coming season. Six pitchers will accompany the team and try for permanent places. Henderson, Moore, Califf, Groom, McKenzle and Schimpff have been selected to try for places. Donahue arid Carson will be seen behind the bat, while Newman at first, Pokorney at second. Staton at short, and McElveensle will make up the infield. Shinn, McHale and McCreedie will be found in the gardens. This leaves the champions with seven new men in the initial make-up of the team.

JEFF SIGNED TO FIGHT BILL SQUIRES FOR $30,000 IN RHYOLITE NEXT APRIL Agreement for Big Battle. By an agreement entered into this twenty-eighth day of December, 1906, between William Delaney, representing James J. Jeffries, and B. F. Taylor, representing the Rhyolite Athletic Association of Nevada, Jeffries agrees to box William Squires of Australia, in a finish fight for the championship of the world, with five-ounce gloves, under Marquis of Queensberry rules, on some date in April next, exact date to be fixed later. Squires is to be allowed the cost of transportation from Australia to California for himself and trainer, the same to be paid by the Rhyolite Athletic Association, independent of the purse. B. F. Taylor, for the Rhyolite Athletic Association, agrees to give a purse of thirty thousand dollars ($30,000) for the championship contest, of which the wirmer is to take sixty (60) per cent and the loser forty (40) per cent. - MEN QUICKLY COME TO TERMS Billy Delaney. representing Jeffries, signed the big fellow to fight Bill Squires in Rhyolie, Nev., next April for a purse of $30,000. When Delaney sat do-wn with B. F. Taylor, of the Rhyolite Athletic association in San Francisco yesterday, they were able to come to a satisfactory understanding in a few minutes. The upshot of it was that Delaney accepted the offer of a purse of $30,000 for the tight, which is to take place on a day in AjTil yet to bo selected. The winner is to receive 60 per cent of this amount, while the loser will receive $12,000 as balm for his wounded feelings. Transportation was cabled Squires when the negotiations were concluded and he was urged to leave for this country as soon as possible. His intention was to come on the liner Sonoma, which left here yesterday for Sydney, but in view of the Importance of the match it is expected he will take the next steamer for this country, arriving here late in January. WILL FIGHT TO FINISH. The paper signed yesterday binds Jeffries to meet Squires before the club at Rhyolite in April. The signing of the formal articles governing the contest has been deferred until the arrival of the Australian. When he arrives the conditions under which the fight will be held will be decided by the principals. The only detail definitely settled Is that It is to be to a finish, which is permitted under the laws of Nevada. The Rlolite promoters have gone about the arrangements for the fight in a business-like way. As a starter, they raised $50,000 for the purse , and Incidental expenses within an hour and a half. The clubmen were told there was as much more to be had whenever they needed it. The promoters have already arranged for a special rate of $20 for the round trip from Los Angeles to the mining camp. The distance is about 40 miles. JEFF WANTS MORE. There is a slight difference of opinion regarding the match between Jeffries and Billy Delaney, who has acted for him in all his big fights. Jeffries gives out word from his ranch at Bur-bank that he expected a purse of more than $30,000. He professes to know nothing of the match. Delaney stands by his guns and says Jeffries will be on hand when the time comes to fight. He says the big fellow will undergo a long preparation and will do a lot of boxing to get back his old judgment of distance. There Is a general opinion that I Squires has not the bulk necessary to make a winning ngnt -vitn jertries. Even though this be true, the fight will attract widespread Interest, as would any event in which Jeffries is a principal. . HARRISON TO LEAD CLUB RUN SA7 FRANCISCO. Dec. 29.

"It's news to me if I have been matched to fight Squires," said Jeffries last night at his, Burbank ranch. "I wired Delaney at San Francisco last night not to do anything and have not heard from him. Of course I would trust Delaney for almost anything and probably would ' agree to anything he said, except as to the amount" of the purse I would fight for. I want more than $30,000." "Weil," he was asked, "if you could not (Bet anything better than $::0,00l, would you tight for that?" , "I don't know. I might not agree to that sum. Of course, the articles, for a tight are not signed yet by me, but if 1 should sign for Squires I would begin training right away and probably would do most of my work in Los Angeles, where I could get Into a handball court." In all his conversations about a $30,- 000 purse. Jeffries has never told the Call correspondent that he would not right for that amount, but always maintained that he wants more. It Is safe to guess that he would take $.i0.0u0, although he may get the "champion's bit" on the side ss a bonus for fighting. DELANEY CONFIDENT. When Billy Delaney . was told of Jeffries' statements, he said: "I do not care whether Jeffries fights or not, but you can say for me that he will, fight. 1 can hardly believe that he has said either that the match was made without his knowledge and consent, or that he will not tight. If he had any intention of refusing to 'meet Squires, why, when Taylor went to Los Angeles to see him. did lie not say at once that ho would not consider a match, instead of referring Taylor to me? , "So far as this match Is concerned. It is not only the best that we could do. but I consider $30,U00 enough for any two men that ever entered the ring. It is, moreover, the largest purse evtr offered in the historv oi the righting game. Why, Corbett at- .Sullivan fought for the championship of the world for a purse of $25,000. and Jem Mace and Tom Allen fought at New Orleans with bare knuckles for the world's championship for $10U0 a side. THEY MEAN BUSINESS. "Another thing that influenced me to clinch Taylor's offer was the fact tluit these Nevada people have proved tlmt they mean business from the word go. 1 would rather have an offer of $S0.u00 from Nevada for April than an offer of $:u,iG0 from any place In California for a later date, for in the first place we are absolutely sure or the money, and I am not so sura that there will be any more Lig hglits in California, "Still another reason for my accepting Taylor's offer is that if I had refused his olfer. which he assured me wa.s final either he or some one else -would have matched some one wilh Squires, and that would have completely shut us out. Until Jeffries tells me flatly that he will not meei aquires und I see him refuse to enter the ring on the dav of the match I shall not believe that he will not fight 1 shall go right ahead with my preparations for the match and we shall see whether Jeff turns me down In the end which he has never done yet. Jeff hasn't wired me not to make the match." : Courant's TMannattan Cocktails Are the talk of the town. For mixed brinks go to the Gallndo Hotel bar. . FUTURITY TO HAVE MANY ENTRIES Although entries for the Futurity do not close until January 2. a great many nominations have already been made. In light of the heavy entries for the Hopeful and other produce stakes already closed, a big entry is looked for the big Sheepshead Bay special. While it is not believed that the highwatet mark will be reached, there is good ground for the belief that the record of recent years will be broken. There Is small chance that the Futurity will ever be worth mote than $70,000 as it was in Potomac's year. Produce stakes were scarce in those days and the Futurity had a clear field. But the Introduction of varieus other rich events of this character has nat urally hail the effect of forcing the breedersrto parcel their entries among several if them, and the Futurity has I suffered tn consequence. It will, how- J ever, always be America s big two- year-old event, whatever success may I come to the others. On the same date January 2d en- iries win ;iose lor vne jsngnion rrou- Iuce of 1907.

Betting Odds on Colored Fighter Have Dropped From 3 to 1 to 10 to 4l2. TONOPAH, Nev., Dec. 29. It is the last days of training for Joe Gans and Kid Herman who battle for the lightweight championship honors here In Tonopah on New Year's day. These are strenuous days. In the camps of the two fighters there seems to be no knowledge of the word rest. Gans 13 working as lie never worked before as he had found 4he weight problem quite ! a bit tougher than he ever anticipated. The colored champion has been brought to the realization that In the cold weather, and with his age against : him, he cannoi wear off the poundage v as he was wont to do in his youftget " days and in warmer climes. This hord work which Joe is compelled to do is causing his admirers in' this section of the country to worry, over his chances. The champion during these latter days of training, Is forced to work to the border of overexertion. He was never called on to mill it so hard and among those, .who want to get their coin down on' his chances, there is a fear that Joe cannot be at his best when forced to .worlti as he is working. It is this fear, no doubt, tffht is causing' Herman to be , much move of a favorite in the bet ting than it wfts ever thought he would figure. , When the match was first made, the sporting writers throughout the country figured Herman's chances at about one to three. According to the dope . this figuring was correct, and if ' J09 ' Gans has shown a disposition to come to weight easily these odds -would have no doubt been prevalent at this tfime. But Herman is not figured at one to -three in this neck of the woods. The lowest he has been at any time is ten; . to four and a half, and only one bet ot any magnitude was plated at these odds. Most of the betting has been at, . ten to five, while not a small amount! of coin has been wagered on the Kid at seven to ten. These would appear to be false odds if one was to go only by the dope book, but up here they have cast the dope book aside. They are banking on 'the condition of the two men and their showing in training, and this Is the reason the odds stand as they do. They, figure that Herman with his great strength and his youth, has at least a one to two chance with the: champion who must toil long and hard to get to get 133 two hours before the fight. That Gans will be at weight, there is no doubt, whatever. Whether he will be at his best remains to he seen. New Year's dav will tell. WILL NOT REOPEN . .
