If Kaufman puts up a good battle against the Boston negro wonder his championship aspirations will receive a big boost. Jack Cororigan, manager of the Min- ers last season, is leading the league with his Rochester, Minn., team. The class of ball there is about the same London sporting writer declares "thai Wells is a wonderfully clever boxer, being the equal of Jem Driscoll. Ha stands 6 feet 2 1-2 inches, weighs 192 pounds, and has a reach or 70 1-2 in- ches. There is talk of matching him against the winner of the Jeffries- Johnson battle. V V" A match which may be pulled off Stanley Ketchel is apparently in good shape at present. The Michigan fighter has cut out the fast life, ac- cording to reports, and has got to serious business. Stanley is a great fighter, but is careless in his train- ing habits. England has a new heavy weight who is declared to be a marvel. His name is Billy Wells, and he was for- merly a soldier in the British army in India, and then went to London. A wculci have him in "tne arena in the finest seat, and it wouldn't cost Hans a penny. Jeffries is exceedingly fond o: baseball, and he think3 tfrat WagMff i.- tne greatest ball player that ever lived. It is dangerous to say any- thing bad about Hans ia'Jeff's pres- ence. .-i- >K Oven Moran, who hag been train- ing at Venice Cal. for his mill en Tuesday night, with Frankie Conley. has been arranged between Lew Pow- jjeff Perry has been assisting-in-get nil i- _ I ting the English light weight into shape for Coniey.

If Jeff ever heard that the great and only Hans wu champion back from Addispn Wol- gast, that he is still using his old time visiting cards inscribed thusly: "Oscar Matthew Battling) Nelson, Lightweight Champion of the World.

"You said Bat, "I didn't de- stroy those cards after my fight with for I figured out that I j would need them again. It wasn't 'economy that made me hold on to them, but I had a sort of a hunch that I could use them in me future." If developments are satisfactory we may look for some such organization as "The Aged and Agile Society for Pedestrians." If John Ends, aged 68, makes gooilo his effort to beat the Skier-continental Journey of Edward Payson Weston. Ennis is a native of Ireland, and despite his years, he is as spry as the proverbial cricket.

Weston, who McKELViE McGUIRE Sole Agents for is three days older tnan Ennis, chose the early spring, when he had the ad- vantage cf better weather conditions. The distance between New York and Frisco is 4300 mile0. Ennis says that Weston really walked only 3500 miles, the distance between Los An- geles and New York. 4- Clarence Beaumont Is doing the best stick work for the Chicago Cubs. His average is .288. There are three Collinses in the American league Two of thorn are second basemen -Eddie, ct the Athletics, and John, of the Sox. Ray Collins, of the Red Sox, is a pitcher. Ben Lomond, Cal., June was the order to-day at' Jim Jeffries' camp when the former cham- pion began boxing again after a lay- off of more than a week. Jeffries laid down the law to his sparring part- ners'before he 'began, intimating if they, did not slug, he would and result was immediately noticeable. Bob Armstrong was the first up. He rushed Jeffries from the start, and set a lively pace for ihre-J rounds. Just before tine was called for the bout, Jeffries drove his into Bob's niidsection and doubled up with a grunt. Joe Choyuoski came next for three rounds, and the pair stepped around in a clear sparring exhibition, Choy- noski displaying even more skill than usual. Jeff Bests Sam Berger. The main event, however, was a two-round go. with Sam Berger, who caiue last. Jeffries was evidently sav ing up for his manager, and they, went at it in slam-bang fashion, rough- ing it around the ring looked like a good old knockdown and drag- out battle. Sam hit hard and Jef- fries replied in kind, much to Ber- ger's discomfort towards the close of the bout These bouts were next to the real tiling- seen here since Jeffries start- ed training. They followed a bit of road work, and after the boxing came a fast 'handball game with, Jim. Cor- beit, who hugely enjoyed the ring work as a spectator. Corbett will not do any sparring until Monday, when he expects to be in good shape. Jeffries was in a working mood, and losing a handball game to Corbett, punched the bagxfor half an hour and wound up the day with his abdominal exercises, to which he attributes his success in reducing his waist line. He started for Santa Cruz after noon, in- tending to take a plunge in the suri before returning. The inception of Jeffries' private eating establishment, watched over by his wife, was another event of the day. Jeffries, his brother, and their wives, will belong to this mess, which will be served from a private kitchen by a private waiter. Backs Up Rickard as Referee. A signed statement was issued by Jeffries to-day with respect to the re- cent discussion as to the possible re- tirement of Tex Rickard as referee and the substitution of Eddie Smith. The statement follows: "In reference to the referee matter my position is this: I have accepted Kickard after stating iny preference for Smith. After accepting Mr. Rick- ard, in whom! have every confidence, I can, not very well ask him to resign. He is good enough for me, but in the event of'h imnot wishing to act or of his feeling that it is against the best interests of the match for him to offi- ciate, then Mr. Smith is acceptable to me. This, however, is decidedly up to Mr. Rickard, as I can not accept a. man and then ask him to resign. Eith- er man is acceptable to me." Before leaving for San Francisco this evening, Berger ordered the er- ection of a new outdoor ring in front of the gymnasium. It will be con- structed as an exact duplicate the one in which Jeffries and Johnson will meet. The suggestion was made by Corbett. While on his way to Santa. Cruz this evening in his automobile with a party of friends, Jeffries narrowly escaped an acdident. While rounding a sharp curve, Jeffries' car suddenly came in to a horse and buggy. Prompt ap- plication of the brakes prevented a collision, but the horse reared over the front of the car and overturned the buggy, throwing two women into the road. The animal tearing itself loose from the buggy, ran away, but was caught by Jeffries and Dick Adams. They righted the vehicle and re-harnessed the horse, after which the party con- tinued to Santa Cruz, where Jeffries went to take a sea More sold than eJl other, brands combined Miss Erucsiine Miirrle, hi "St. Elmo" :J the Majestic A.
