GIBBONS QOITS By Jack Velock. .New York.--After 10 years in the ring .Mike Gibbons, famous St. Paul "phalitom" has announced that he is through with the game. Gibbons has taken on weight. He has grown too heavy to i-educo to the middleweight limit of 15S pounds, and as he has piled up a fortune he is satiefied to quit. His brother, Tommy, will take up the trail where .Mike left oft and carry the name of Gibbons along for a number of years. Tommy is almost a double of Mike. -Mike Gibbons ranks as the greatest middleweight boxer ever developed who finished his career without having won the championship. Time after time Michael laid claim to the title, but though his claims were well based he was never acknowledged the title holder. There has never been a more graeful, scientltlc boxer than Gibbons was at the height of his careei-. Fitzsimmong was great, and a terrible puncher, but he.had nothing on Mike in cleverness and speed. The "Phantom" was a veritable willo'-the-wisp in the ring. Ho wae one of the hardest men to hit who has ever drawn on a glove and lie could hit some himself. During his long career Gibbons met ' all the good ones in his class. He i fought -AIcGoorty, Clabby, McFarland, I Dillon, Ahearn. .McCoy, Barttleld, Jeff ! Smith, -Moha, Ferns, .McAllister, Howell, Wlllio Lewis, .McCarron, Brown and all the rest. Lewis, .\hearn, Ferns, McAllister and some of the lessor lights were his knockout victims, and though most of hja bouts during the last five years of his campaign were no-decision affairs, he never left the ring a beaten man. Boston, June 2t'.-Although lie gave eight bases on balls, Shellenhach hold Detroit to two hits today and Chicago won 3 to 0. Score: . Chicago ..........110 000 100-3 S 2 Detroit ...........000 000 000-0 2 1 Shellenhach and Schalk; Dauss and Yelle, Spencer. St. Louis, June 2().-Cleveland and St. Louis split another double header today. Cleveland won the first game lu the third inning, driving Sothoron from the box after two errors by him had paved the v,-uy for four nins. A double by Hendrlx with the bases full in the eighth Inning, gave the locals the second game. Scores: Cleveland ........014 000 000-5 7 0 St. Louis ........000 003 001-I 7 2 Coveleskie, Bagby and O'Neill; Sothoron, Houck and .Vunamaker.

At the recent meeting of the .National Trotting asBoclatiou in Chicago there w-as considerable argument regarding the timing of races, the engagement of incompetent timers. Judges, etc. It came about over the penalizing of the trotting mare Wilkes Brewer, and A. G. .Asdikian, In reviewing the case, has' the following to say: The correct record oi: the Younga-town owned mare. Wilkes Brewer, which came before tho .National Trotting association's hoard for an official decision is a sample of numerous similar Incidents happening on harness racing tracks every season, due directly to the manning of official stands, hotlv Judges anWtlmers, by incompetent men. very often under the excuse of prominent citizens, because they either cost very little to associations or often nothing but the gallery play that goes with It. Cut Time One Second. The winrace recoid of this mare at Colnmbus in the 2:07 trot, the only race she won all last season, was reported as 2:07V4, and so published In the dally press, but it seems that the timers, for reasons of their own, corrected it as 2:0()U. compelling hnr owner, (Jr. \V". H. Buechnor, and driver Fred Jamison, a lot of unfair annoyance, also unnecessary expense and trouble to apply to turf officials for a correction which was directly the fault of timers who apparently knew nothing of the rosponsihlp work assigned to them, nor had the least knowledge about rating the epeed of race horses. Why the Penalty. Whatever the reason for taxing Wilkes Brewer with a whole second faster wini-ace and thus throwing her out of the rich stake events for 2:08 classes to which she rightly 'was eligible, is not known, except that It was not only so recorded, but the same approved by the judges equally Ignorant of racing experience and knowledge. �  : .
