A TORONTO BOY MAKES GREAT SHOWING BIG BOWLING EVENT AT ST. LOUIS IS .SCHEDULED Game Will Get Boom by Rolling Tour- ney After' New Year's St.'Louis is in the thick of prepara- tions for the coming national tourna- ment of the American Bowling con- gress, scheduled at the Coliseum from January 21 to February 6, 1911, and the Mound city promoters are talking up an expected entry list of some 450 clubs, 50 more than turned out for De- troit .last-spring. The greatest reason for an expected gain in the number of entries is down, to the early date of the opening, which is set for January, nearly two months earlier than, the usual open- ing-games have been rolled in the last few years. Chicago held the first meeting of the congress back in 1901 and games were all -rolled "within the two weeks or New Year's day.- SincVthen the date for starting has steadily grown the -tournament later until at Now that the lamb has got the butcher groggy, as we say down in he yards, we are once more numbed! with surprise. There was something wrong with lie dope this year. Perhaps the come has something- to So with it. There have been so many favorites in bet- ing gone wrong that the sure-thing 'layers will have to eat snowballs until long after Christmas. First it was Battling. Nelson who big favorite "in the books to etain his lightweight crown, when he met Ad' Wolgast last Washington's irthday. There was a wail from the inchers when -Bat bowed before the ough little Dutchman. We no sooner ad recovered than everybody began tell how Jim Jeffries was going o crush Jack Johnson into a grease pot. Well, we saved up our wages nd went with, the wise geeks. You all know what happened, but some of Jimmy Archer, the Toronto boy with the Chicago Cubs, has had fewer bases stolen on him during the past season than any of his other 22 -rivals. The Chicago star in 49 games allowed 37 pilfers, or .76 per game. McLean, of Cincinnati, ranked second. Gibson, of Pittsburg, maintained his reputation as an iron man, Ms 143 games being high for the organization. In this Marathon stunt he allowed 135 steals., an average of 94. "per game. Kling. of Chicago, did slightly better, allowing .91 to steal. Carrigan was the only catcher in the league to take part in over 100 games, while he was one of the four to allow more than century of steals. JACK JOHNSON GOING TO FRANCE TO FIGHT New -York. jNTov: 'John- son, the heavyweight pugilist, is go- ing to try'to find a ioeman worthy of his steel in Europe. He said yes- terday that he would sail for France about 15; with-tine possibil- ity that he would do some fighting abroad. "I am sure there is somebody to fight in France or said Johnson. "After'I got through at thought I would never fight Pretty soon I came to the Reno I again conclusion fight in ,a year. Now and the quicker got tired of loafing, I can make a good match, the better satisfied I will-be." Johnson said he would consider an offer from Joe Jeanette if a purse was arranged, as intimated by a Paris promoter. Louisville a fashion for beginning on St Patrick's day was set and it has been adhered to pretty much ever since until St. Louis made a big pro- test at Detroit -and-carried its point by getting the dates in January. Baseball "interferes Starting the meet in March has al- ways cost the'' promoters. a lot of. en- of baseball and.'fans alike turning from the Indoor game to the diamond sport, and showing only lukewarm interest in the annual tour- nament. With an early date it looks as though a lot, of diamond stars will take part in the meet this year, while xnewspapers all over the country "are expected to devote more space to the meet, as their columns will not be filled with reports of the spring training trips7 of their, ball clubs. The Missouri promoters are, almost A match has been_ clinched-between, without exception, different men from those who ran the 1907 gathering, the Owen Moran ami Knockout Brown. They will meet for 12 rounds before the Armory Athletic Association of Boston on Tuesday eveniog, Nov. 22. Danny Morgan, manager of Brown, MI cepted the terms and telegraphed Ms acceptance to tbe club officials. Brown, is also matched to fight Tommy Mur- phy at the Olympic Athletic Club to- night. are still wondering how we could ave been so foolish as to be touted n a cripple. Come Surprises in Baseball In a baseball way, a couple of sur- rises came this season when the orld's champion Pirates failed to now what was expected of such avage maneaters. Also the Tigers, 909 champions of the American ague, went the same way and shock- d the Detroit fans. There is more to come.

B. C. contests. In that year the players were given sectional alleys, a poor building located a long distance from the center of the city and a jum- bled schedule, and to cap it all a warm wave hit the town that forced 'the players to shed their ordinary coats on the street and to walk around in their shirt sleeves, the temperature being absolutely against nigh scoring. Brief and Breezy RING GOSSIP Who is middleweight champion? Sam Langford, Billy Papke, Joe Thom- as, Hugo Kelly, Frank Klaus and Frank Mantell are scrambling for the Utie. "Tex" Rickard and Jack Gleason, promoters of the Johnson-Jeffries fight, are telling New York newspaper men they will open a Broadway office November 1 to receive subscriptions to start a new league. Red-headed boxers aren't usually quitters, but "the critics are accusing 'Sandy" Ferguson of having a yellow streak. He simply refuses to stand the gaff in a gruelling fight Jim Barry made him quit recently. Willie Lewis and.Dixie Kid, the ne- gro fighter, are going to battle again. I om O'Rourke has .matched them to meet for ten rounds'at 'the stag- of the national Sporting .Club of New York NOV. is. Lewis begged O'Rourke to put him on again with Dixie Kid, and as the latter was perfectly will- ing the bout was quickly arranged. Jack Johnson has received an offer of to appear in Paris and it ig likely that Jack will accept. He will go west again before -crossing the water. "I will be in -England in April, says Johnson, "so I might as well skip over, collect the coin and give the Parisians a glimpse of the real stuff. Just whom little concern. I hope something classy. It I meet is of they uncover would liven things-up, for I see no chance of a good bout in this country." The crucial test to ascertain'wheth- er or not Battling Nelson can go the route "against a good, fast boy will come when he meets Owen Moran at Jimmy Coffroth's club in 'Frisco Nov. The contest will be fought in the afternoon and will be- an open air affair. If Nelson makes a creditable fight against Moran he will get a cnance at Ad.Wolgast, who won the title from him at Port Richmond, CaL, on Washington's -birthday, February; BASEBALL NOTES The Athletic did not draw as well the past season as they did in 1909, bowing a decrease of A great crop of ball players is ex- pected to attend the major league'base ball convention- in New York.
