Did Not Box Johnny Dundee last
Night, Though Scheduled.
NEW YORK, Feb. 5. Tommy O'Koefe. of
Philadelphia, did not box at the Federal A. C.
Inst nlgnt, and It may be said In paaslng
that Quaker City athleto li not likely to per
form In this city, nor Stato for somo time to
come. Tommy, who has met Leach Cross, Jack
Brltton and numerous other stars, was to hao
tried hli skill against Johnny Dundee, tho
West Side lad, but for some reason, as jet
unexplained, he walked Into the clubhouse, nnd
as the onco popular song has It. "ho walked
right out again." Tommy was guilty of a
double breach In that ho never lingered around
to say goodby. He simply folded his trnts
and disappeared Into the exterior darkness.
Tho promoters will enter charges against
O'Keefe nt the next meeting of tho State Ath
Barney Ford, tho local boxer nho took tha
trip with Tommy O'Kecfo, of this city, to
New York last night, said this afternoon:

I did not go through with tho bout In Now
iorK wnn uunaee. Tommy wbh suffering
from a high fever, and I adWsod him not to
box, as thero was not moro than JI50 in tho
houso. O'Keefe was to fight for 20 per cent
of tho gate receipts.
"Bofore leaving Philadelphia, Tommy com
plained that he did not feel well His head
and mouth were glilmr him a grent deal of
iwln. but he sold that he needed tho money
nnd would tignt Dundeo as scheduled. When
wo got to New York I left him In tho hotel
and went to the club myiclf. Tommy was
never near the club.
"The gallery os Jammed, but the other
section of the houso nas half empty nnd those
who did occupy seats wore 'dead heads.' Had
there been sufficient money In the house Tom
would havo taken a chanco to box, but with
a small purie evident I decided not to let
O'Keefe Injure himself. Tommy Is sick In
bed at home at the present time. '

Turning" again to that matter of
brains vs. courage In sport, there isn't
any doubt but that what is generally
known as brains on the field is three
parts courage and stamina.
Take tho case of Ty Cobb. T. Ray
mond, of Royston, has brains enough,
but most ot his success is due to a mix
ture of courage and stamina, plus, of
sourse, sueh physical qualities as are
necessary to forwarding the rest of it

Th- winners proved thcmsclvis the fastest and
best-balanced awlrnmlng team In Philadel

of C. M. Rlttcr, the German ex-champlon
ur Immer, they did not get a first placo in
any of the luUng events except tho 1'uo-yard

Cobb's courago and stamina and speed.
Ho la nover beaten. Ho goes In with his
head up and his eyes open, brimming
with contldenco in his own ability to
turn the trick. If tho occasion arrives,
ho Is ready to take tho opening at top
speed. An aggressive ball player Is
pretty sure to be a brainy one, for he Is
always In the thick of the game.

PACKEY HOMMEY PUTS UP
FORFEIT FOR THREE FIGHTS
Little Battler Wants to Meet Williams, Kilbane and Welsh,
; in Order Named, and Agrees to Make Weight
for Each Contest,
Packoy Hommey, who Is making his
Iiomo here, aspires to become all-around
right champion or tne world. Packey
proposes to whip Kid Williams, bantam
weight champion, then set sail for
Johnny Kilbane's featherweight crown,
and lastly attempt to beat Freddie Welsh,
the lightweight tltlo holder. This Is not
Josh, but the self-announced plan of Phil
adelphia's hardy pugilist.
Harry Lenny, with Packey Hommey In tow,
bustled Into tho sports department of the
livening Ledger thla morning and announced
his willingness to baitlo tho three muck-talked
of champions, To show that ho means busi
ness, Hommey had Manager Lenny deposit
MOO with tho Sports Editor of tho Evening
Ledger to be a part of a $2.'0 sum to go for
weignt ana appearance against cuuer m
lams, Kilbane or Welsh Hommey sayB he
will fight Williams at 122, Kllbano at 12S
and Welsh at 13J.
Hommey has mado a fine Impression In his
battles In thla section. In his last fight that
with George Chancy at Baltimore this wcek
the local battler was outpointed. However.
Hommey and Lenny both think a draw would
havo been fair. Chaney Is one of the most
serious contenders for tho featherweight cham
pionship, and Packey by his showing In 10
rounds with tho shifty and hard-hitting llaltl
morean has proved conclusively that he has
tho class. Hommey weighed 10 when he bat
tled with Chancy. Ho says ho can train to
122 without weakening himself.
Hommev has been rcmatched to fight
Chaney February 22 at Baltimore, Later .n
the month ho will meot Tommy Lowe, of
Washington, at Ardmore, Md,
Orover Hayes will appear tonight In his sec
ond bout of the week at the Quaker City A.
A. The veteran lightweight fought a 10-round
draw with Harry Condon, of Brookljn, at
Montreal. Canada, Tuesday night.
The program follows:
First bout Frankle Krause, Nlcetown, vs,
Billy Lehman. Manayunk
Second bout Johnnv Gorman, Kensington,
vs Johnny Morgan. Kensington. ,
Third bout-Sailor Butler, Itochcater, vs. Abe
Sherman. San Francisco,
