Ten SATURDAY MORNING, THE PITTSBURGH POST. APRIL 27, 1012. Packey McFarland Has Easy Time Defeating Matt Wells TEH V J 15 . Br luur r. macihemox. am. Jut Walt Awhile. OP course very tame coaati. but the fans need not become too greatly alarmed because the Pirates have failed to connect with the ball with any decree of regularity. Sooner or later the batting slump Is going to pass and then watch for the Corsairs to murder the ball. With the exception of McCarthy and Leach. he team is far below Its form, but ere Is every reason to believe that fore another 10 days roll by the club will strike its gait. Look at the other teams In the major leagues. The champion Athletics aren't setting the world on (Ire with . tbeir slugging. Mack's twlrlers are going good and the team usually manages to win on a few hits. Next week the Pirates will be home for practically an entire month, which will give Clarke an opportunity of having his men out for morning batting practice. Don't be discouraged, the club hasn't yet rot:- led into form. but the class is there and it's bound to come out. PACKEY HAS EASY TIDE DEFEATING ENGLISH FIGHTER McFarland Gets Nine of the Ten Rounds Is Like Lightning. HOUSE GOES OVER $30,000 Wells Fails to Show the Form That Many Claimed He Would Eaey for Packey. THE result of the McFarland-Wells light last night was no surprise to those who had sized up both men beforehand. That Packey would . come out a winner was the belief of nearly every fan in the country, but they did not think he would have such an easy time of it. Reading round by round it will be found that the Briton failed to show much class, la all probability McFarland could have scored even more heavily had he extended himself from stort to finish. As It was. he saw in the early part of the argument that he would have a soft snap and rdid not cut loose, being satisfied with winning on points. Carry IHart Favored. SLOWLY but surely the major league clubs are abiding by the wishes of their patrons la one -respect. Ball games that have usually been schedule) for 3: 30 and 4 o'clock are now starting 13 minutes to half an hour earlier. The latest magnate to announce his decision Is t Charles Ebbets. of Brooklyn. Yesterday the owner of the Dodger crew gave out the statement that hereafter the games would commence at 3:30 every day with the exception of Saturday when the umpire would call play at 3 o'clock. Hithertofore ball games In Brooklyn started at 4 o'clock. Baseball is exceedingly popular with the masses, but a goosi hot dinner goes it one better. Win Hank Vpnet Precedent? SHOULD Hank O'Day pilot his Red brigade to victory this season, say. Into the first Jivlslon. he will upset precedent, for. although many umpires have tried their hands at managing a ball club, none has succeeded. Tim Hurst thought he could turn out a winner at SU. Louis 10 years ago. but it didn't take him long to realise that he was badly mistaken. O'Day was a good umpire, la fact, the best In the country for many years, and so he should know ike game and players alike. And. furthermore, he should make a success of his new job. WEATHER permitting the local amateur teams will get away to a grand start this afternoon. Present Indications point to the local sea-. son. so far as the future greats are concerned, being one of the best la years. There are more ball clubs saady for the bell than ever before i and there Isn't a youngster who Is not anxiously waiting for the first Can-- As usual, the amateur field M Western Pennsylvania will be care- fully scrutinised by minor league v coauta. This to known as one of the r best sections la the country for de-l Yslopin? young ball players. iCIIKNT CREELEY and Harry Palmer slxe up pretty evenly for their K-rouad argument tonight at OK , City kail. Every indication points to It being a dandy battle, with Creeley coming out the right end by caall margin. The Brooklyn boy vtn hare a slight advantage la '- weight, aad when he Is allowed to jse? through the ropes around 122 ' pounds there are few In this county try who have anything on him. Pah-v-ier Is a mighty good boy. In f set. atside of Patsy Brannlgan. the best Cantam la the city, but Johnny looks the least bit better.

BT ASSOCIATED PRESS. NEW YORK. April 2fi.-Packey McFarland. who was introduced tonight, at Madison Square Garden, as Chicaos flshtlnr Irishman, administered a severe drubbing to England's lightweight champion. Matt Wells. The man went tea rounds, and while McFarland was a 10 to 7 favorite, nobody thought that his task would be so easy. Wells was a deeded disappointment, the Englishman's much-heralded cleverness not being in evidence after the opening- round. iMcFarland. at all stages, was cool and collected, while Wells lost his head early in the game. Packey Jabbed, swung and uppercut his man at will from the opening of the second round till the final clang of the "bell ended the tenth round, and Wells made, frantic efforts to land a telling blow, but Packey invariably made him miss by elever side-stepping and ducking. Wells did not land ten clean blows during the entire contest, but on the other hand he was kent buav on ths rwoivinc end with Packey's unremitting stinging Jabs and uppercuts. It was a one-sided fight, and McFarland upheld everything that his friends had claimed for him. It was estimated that about 9.000 persons were in the house and that the receipts will be over $30,000. ROUND ONE Wella tried a left swing, but missed and then landed left to the body. Packey feinted and put his left on the neck. Both were wary.

Another Forbes Field game was prs-vented yesterday, by bad weather, making five postponements In which the Pirates have figured during the 16 daya that have elapsed since the National league season was launched. Thus far every other day in the week has witnessed a postponement for the Pittsburgh club. A game was played on Sunday in Chicago, but' on Monday, rain caused the matinee to be called off. On Tuesday the farewell fray in Cubland was brought off, but on "Wednesday the weather gave the Buccaneers and Reds an idle day in this city. They were permitted to clash on Thursday, but next day it rained and nothing was doing. Both the Pirates and Reds were eager to pley yesterday. Hank O'Day's men are going at their best and are anxious to increase their lead as rapidly as possible, for they fully realize that this is just the time to hop after any team that is in a slump. The Corsairs too. are aware that they are sadly in need of practice. Morning drills on the home pasture are especially desired and these will be the order of the forenoon whenever the club Is at home and the weather will permit. Fred Clarke Heeds Warning. Fred Clarke consulted with the weather man yesterday and was assured that more rain was certain to fall during the afternoon. He therefore decided to take no chances and play was called off. Both teams had turned out, but only light practice was indulged In. Some of the Cincinnati boys started kidding their rivals about refusing to play ball because they were afraid of getting beaten. Clarke's action proved wise after all, for the shower resumed operations at 3:30 and kept up a constant downpour the rest of the day. According to predictions It Is likely that showers will fall this morning, but there are indications that the afternoon will be fair, in which case a game of ball will be played at 3 o'clock on Forbes field. The canvas cover waa kept over the infield during yesterday's rains and the ground should be in excellent shape for a contest. Distinguished Guests Expected. Lawmakers and dignitaries of two nations will watch the Pirates and Reds clash at Forbes Field today, provided PITTSBURGH'S OFFICIAL COLORS WILL BE WORN BY NEW BALL CLUB Filipinos Receive Uniforms Trimmed in Black and Gold Will Present Stunning Appearance in Patriotic Togs Special Train Will Carry Fans to Cleveland. the weather permits. Pittsburgh will have as its guests Vice President James S. Sherman, Congressmen Frank M. Nye, of Wisconsin, and Edgar D. Crumpacker, of Indiana; Senator Charles Curtis, of Kansas; Lieutenant Governor J. M. Reynolds, of Pennsylvania; Adjutant General Thomas J. Stewart, of the National Guard of Pennsylvania; Willis L. Moore, chief of the United States weather bureau, and General Carmen Diaz, of Nicaragua, consul general in New , York. This party will be guests of President Barney Dreyfuss and will occupy box seats in section 6, which is directly opposite the home plate at the side of the grandstand on. which - the Pittsburgh players' bench is located. The visitors will be escorted from Hotel Schenley at 2:30 o'clock to the Forbes Field stadium. Vice President Sherman Is an ardent admirer of the National game, and seldom misses an opportunity to see the big league players in action upon the diamond. Whn t h. YPf1r!rmi tmA Vail field next Wednesday at Cleveland fcr the opening of the season in the United States league, they will without doubt be the most attractively dressed outfit in the entire circuit. They will wear the colors of their home city black ani Cold, The new uniform arrived in Pittsburgh yesterday and are stunning. It la an original wrinkle, to attire the athletf in garments trimmed with the official hies of ' their own town. The traveling costumes are grav and those to be worn on the home field are wh!te. Tho caps are black and each U adorned with the letters P. A., which, stand for Pittsburgh and Allegheny. th real name adopted by the ciub. These letters are alFn worked into a monogram on tn loft side of the blouse. Th caps have high crowns after the style worn by the Philadelphia team. The stockings selected for the Filipinos are black with a wide gold stripe. Big Doings in Cleveland. Much interest Is being shown by the public Rs the time draws near for tre open!ng games in the new league. Pittsburgh fans have besieged the railroads and as a result a special train Is being arranged to carry the crowd from here to the Forest City to see the Filipinos and Invaders lift the lid. Manager Phillippe was anxious to have his warriors secure a good workout yesterday but the practice was cut short by the shower and it is feared that the all-night downpour may make it impossible for the exhibition game to be played at Irwin this afternoon. All the players appear to be in pretty good shape, "but it is important at this period to give them every bit of exercise possible. The Trip to Cincinnati. Yesterday's postponement will be played off on Friday. July 5. Cincinnati will be the attraction here on Independence day in morning and afternoon games and the fifth having been an open date, it was chosen for filling In with the fray that failed to materialize yesterday. This will give the Pirates and Reds a series of four games in three days In Pittsburgh at that time. After today's game, both teams wltl hustle for Cincinnati where they are scheduled to play tomorrow and Monday. Tuesday will be an open date, but Wednesday will find the Pirates back on their own lot for a four-game series with the Cubs. Fred Clarke will take 13 players along. In addition to himself, on the trip to Redland. Secretary Locke, three war correspondents and Trainer Laforce will increase the baseball party to 24 people. Peitz and His Famous Laugh. Henry J. Peitz. the famous old catcher, who Is now coaching for the Cincinnati Reds, paid a friendly visit at the office of the Pittsburgh Baseball club yesterday. He looks fully as rugged today as he did when he formed the receiving end of the Breltenstein-Peitz combinationone of the greatest batteries of it time. Heinle's coaching is considered one of the big factors in the present winning streak of the Rdlegs, an'l Manager O'Day evidently made a wia move in signing him. He still possesses his sharp voice that penetrates every part of the playing field, and his sarcastic and cutting laugh is always sprun? at a moment when the opposing site must observe great care to prevent a rise of temper. Peitz does not resort to profanity, but merely keps plugging away with that derisive laugh which has more than once been known to rattle a pitcher. It sometimes grates upon the nerves of an umpire, too, but of course the arbiter could not logically find fault with a fit of laughter if judiciously handled, and the former Pittsburgh back, stop knows exactly when to spring th-J the giggle in order make it effective.
