While MoFarland had the hettflir-ot the argument on the �ihole, Britton made,the better showing in Jtbe final round! 7 Neither of the two lightweights, whose long talked of match has ex-ciiied much interest, boxed up to the jBspeetations, of ttose who have been anxiously looliing {or a meeting b�-twesii them. �Packey showed that he was the cleverer iboxer, but "Britton pro'ved that .h^'isl^thb hardest hitter.

The fact that L. T.

These critics have strong opposition. A writer in the Cincinnati Entiulrer, one of the i strongest sporting papevs 1� th^ States, sizes Washington up somewhat to the contrary: He says: Washington had an exceptionally lucky year in 1912. Walter Johnson is a whole show In himself, but, ot course, he cannot hold a team up Iri the race entirely unassisted, though he could do so if hc could pitch every day or even three times a week. He will be good, as he always is. He is of a class that cannot he anything but good. But last year the team was very lucky In having Groome a.nd Hughes pitch wonderful ball all season, and it is too much to expect that they will repeat. Cashion may develop, but there la" a big "If" In his case. He Is the kind that would number among the top-notchers if he toad control, hut he never had it, and a smart club with good pitching of its own can always get to him and' win -it out on bases on iballs. Cashion " may turn out to bo a wonder this' year, hut the odds are against him. If be does, with his size and strength, he would make a great running mate for Walter Johnson, and th^ pair of them would keep Washington up In the race, no matter how many mistakes are made In the conduct of the team. But Cashion is;very uncertain, and the club has no good loft-hand pitcher. Washington has a good in-field, though uncertain at second Vase. Gandil] has. been a great help to the club, which had a percentage of .420 when he joined early In June last y^ar, and soon Jumped up among the leaders.' Th^, outfield is fast and high, class, while, if Henry is in good shape to work this year, tlie catching lA great. But it is hard to see this club contending seriously 'with such teams ag the Athletics and "^ Bostons. It is more likely to finish In the second division. The team that-has a.better .Chance td give the 8trong"eastcmers a hard flght is the Chicago club. The White Sox are the best of the west-ern teams this year and look capable of trailing close to the two leaders, . and perhaps upsetting one ot them. Nor is it safe to absolutely count the Tigers out ot it, as nearly every one 18 doing. , This club, has inferior pitching; but hits so hard and runs so fast that it wins many a game by sheer force of attack. Jennings has a good chance to run In the first division. The othe'r nluhB do not need to he considered In' a terious manjier. The prediction here is that the.,flnish'in the American League race will,be about Is follows: Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Wash . Ington, St. Louis and New York.
