First, Kaufman decided not lo go, then Flyniu They dropped-away one by one, in fact. Even Jack John- son, ou whose "good faith" in ihe con nettiun, secured in surancG from Lloyds of London gave out that i.ne preferred retirement to a. trip across the ocean. Johnioh's Bactt-Qut This latter was the iinkindesL cut of all us Mack expected to use the cham- pion us a ball-wether. First of all, each of'.his trails-Atlantic pilgrims was to be'assured a number of matches and tlie chance of a crack at Johnson and tho championship was to be his if lie worked Ma way up to it. When Mointosh began to start the works at his summer atadlum, the only new arrival at his disposal was Sam McVea. Sam was sent against Jack Lceter and Bill Lang in turn, and whipped thorn lioth. Then tho Situa- tion -became The cable was brought -Into requisition and 'the hurried flight to Vancouver of Lang- ford, Porky and others was .the re- sult. It; is understood that Langford has six matches and ithat similar terms have been made in itlic case of ,FJynn. It will lie easy enough for the .head of match-mak- ing bureau' to secure up opponents for Fly n ti, :aijf there" are quite ii number of second and third rale heavies around Sydney, who are fairly popu- lar with the patrons of the sport..But aafd to he negotiating with .the Tor- onto people to effect a salo or ex- chango tho deal. er, while McKoy and McAleer are his hi rod men. -Take Slahl, banker-hall player, las Deeii .tinneed out of retirement by Jimmy iifew mmsjiwor of t s.o Chicago Sox, and the flrat. will cf vort nbout the "Initial ouahion for Jimmy MoAleor's Bosloii Hod Sox, :u.t, ui Mold mid .lack Lester, who .defeated Lang, haft been defeated by Sam JfcVea, who fought a twenty round draw with Sam..-- ]-.angford in Paris. Under the off- ices it cannot be soon that tho Sydney sports, fight 3mngry though they may be, cnn be got to regard a Lang ford-Lester bout an event of promise. A newly arrived Australian man says he docs not aea where Sam Langford's six fightu are to come from unless he fights McYea, six times. They have the repeating habil, though, in Australia, and Mclutwh who knows the business ifchoroughlj-, will hatuile Langford so that a cer- tain degree of. interest will attach to each of S-am's appearances. First of nil if Lang can be patched up he will, in all probability be trotted out as an opponont for Langford. Mclntosii, wh has always been ai strong believer in Bill's fighting prow- ea, and who held that Lang was turn- ing the tables on Lartgford in Lon- don, when the unfortunate foul caused the Australian to be disqualified, will contrive to make the result of this match seem doubtful. When Langford defeats Lang, ho iiirely will, Lester, the..man who de- feated Lang will be signed with UKI "Tar and after that is all over, there will he little the de- laying of Hie day of reckoning be- tween the two and Langford. If Langford insists on his six match- es. Cyclone Johnny Thompson may ob- lige. The Cyclone went on-the same steamer with Langford, and any one who knows Johnny, knows that tho size of his opponent does not bother film at all. He. would just as soon tackle Langford as Packy HicFarland. H may be that Dave Smith, the Aus- tralian middleweight clmmpfon, will iie sent lo the front as a customer foe Lai'.gford, the grand finale will -be fur- nished by the two negroes. And if Johnson still adheres to bis notions about retirement, McIatOBh will of course, advertise the iMcVea- -nngford go as a fight for the world's ihampionship.
