The young 'irst-sacker says the Pittsburg Dis- patch, is just now hitting at a sensi- ble pace, and Ms fielding is all that could be asked. Jack has been the means of winning many games for the Pirates. His batting is timely and he is seldom called on but he "deliv- Astonished When He Was Fined For.Speeding Cleveland, Aug. Johnson, heavy-weight champion, was knocked out of and costs by a feather -weight. Justice J. J. McEwen, of Lakewood village, 'to-day, and John- son had the aid of Maurice Maschke, Republican boss of Cleveland, too. The boss wrote the Justice a note asking him to favor him by remitting Jack's fine for automobile speeding. Mc- Bwen was adamant, however, when Johnson appeared. I'll plead guilty to said Johnson, who was accompanied to Caurt by State Representative Eu- banks, colored.

"You just want to say you fined Jack Johnson, that is all you want" the big black cried, "Why John D. Rocke- feller was only fined and they let him send some of his men into Court in. his place. I've driven clear here from Cleveland (its ten miles) and you soak me." Then he flashed a huge roll and paid up. OLDFIELD TO TOUR WORLD Calgary, Aug. won the de- cision here tonight from -Eddie Mar- ino in a fifteen round contest. It was a stall from start to finish on the part of Attell. It was easily seen that the world's featherweight champion was pulling his blows to let Marino go the limit. At that Marino received a ter- rible punishment. Attell would use left jab time after time, just hard enough to cut up his opponent -with- out knocking him out. The first round was fought under straight rules, and Marino received several left jabs fol- lowed -by -rights to wind or kidneys. The mounted police interfered and threatened to stop the -contest unless the contestants fought under the clean break rules. The result was a tarce as far as clean breaks went, and 'both men lived up to the rule for a round and then both hit time after time in clinches. Marino fought a very game fight. He was -bleeding from the mouth and nose in the second, which continued up till the end of the fight. Some of the rounds were cut down to two minutes, one only going a minute and ten seconds. The last five rounds was nothing but clinches on the part of Marino. Attell did not try to knock Marino out but was perfectly satisfied with continued jabbing which was enough to give him the de- cision. Marino only landed aibout three times his 'blows always falling short of the shifty champion. The house was a poor one and on this ac- count the preliminaries -were cut out- much to the disappointment of the crowd. Jimmy Sewell refereed the fight, but could not keep the men un- der control.

The splendid showing of the Ath- letes on the Western trip must make it plain to all that Connie Mack has not been drawing to a four flush this season; instead he was there strong before the draw with three big aces. The most interesting feature of the trip was the work of the Mack men at Detroit. It was common talk yitb the Tigers that the Quakers would quit and would go all to pieces when they went to Jeiiningsville. but this they failed to do. The Boston Red Sox put a bad crimp in the Tigers' am: bitions when they broke a long string of victories and forced Jennings to realize that he was not so strong as last season. Th oft repeated remarks of Ty. Cobb to the effect that the Athletes were not a game bunch, must have hurt the Mack men, judging from the way the Tigers were forced to take the count No team can a champion- ship .unless they are game, and the Athletes have shown ihcy are fully as game as Mr. Cobb. The Quakers are a modest bunch that play clean ball and never attempt to bulldoze, while the Tigers are Just the but this time they are out of the run- ning and will have to work overtime to hold a respectable position. The Boston Red Sox were going nicely .until after the first two games at Cleveland, -when the machinery com for a fight is fighting.

He says that Jef- fries was -whipped by his training be- fore he stepped into the .'ring on July fourth. He writes further: "The Jef- fries grouch was proof enough of his precarious physical condition, and 'this is not a case of hindsight.

Just before leaving my quarters for the ringside, I sent a mes- senger to Johnson to ask if he would take all the purse and let it go as a draw. It seemed hours before an ans- wer came.
