INTERNATIONAL TO HAVE SHORTER SEASON WILLI AMS-KILBANE MATCH HANGING FIR
WILLARD WILL LOSE FIGHT
PREDICTS SPORTING EXPERT
Frank G. Menke Says Jack Johnson Has Gone Back But
, Little and That White Hope Jess Will
. , . Never Be His Equal.
And now that the Jack Johnson-Jess
"Willartl affair stems fairly certain of be
ing staged, Frank-d. Mcnke, of the In
ternational News Service, comes forth
with this prediction:
JOIW8XJN WILt. WIN WITH COM
FAItATIVE KASE IP TlIK FIOHT IS
ON THE LEVEL.
Thcro nro a number of reasons why wo
pick Johnson, but the most Important one
Is 'that he comes of the negro race of a
raco that can grow old In years and yet
retain Its endurance; of a raco that can
indulco In wild dissipation and not lose
much of Its physical power.
Those -ho believe Wlllard tins a fair
chance for victory come to such n be
lief not bcrauso they think Wlllard Is a
great fighter. They know ho Isn't n
wonder but they think that the neKro
champion has "none back" so far that
any ordinary fighter can bent him. They
think that added years nnd an Intem
perate life .have reduced the one-time
king of the pugilistic world to a point
Where ho wilt become cosy prey for any
typo of ring foe.
Those who figure thusly flguro wrongly, In
our opinion. Johnson Is RB years old. There
la no denying that, nor la thcro any denying
of tha fact that he has dlastnated. The extent
of hi dissipation I" an open question, but
those who are close to Johnson pay that tht
reportB or hla swimming In champagne and
doing like stents are grote exaggerations
IJut In our opinion the added jenm and tlio
dissipation, no matter how wild It lias been,
have rift reduced Johnson In the point where
M will not be able to hand Wllllard, the
while giant, n beautiful lamming.
Johnson was no jears old when, ho fought
Frank Moran, In Parle, last June. At that
ttmo many .figured that Johnson had "gone
tiack." to far that Koran had a chance against
him. What happened?
Johnrnn, the "'physical wreck." simply toyed
with Moran during thoie SO round He could
hava knocked out Moran In any round that he
chose, but ha elected that the white man
should atay the limit. Sloran did not furnish
Johnson a battle. The negro didn't have to
xtend himself, yet several times during thoee
20 rounds he cut loose. Those who wero at
tlc ringside ray that the old Johnson speed,
the old Johnson endurance and the old John
son Bunch are still there.
Johnson. .10 J ears old. and reported as a
physical wreck, came out or that scrap wlllt
hardly a mark on him. l(e was as fresh nnd
att root as when he entered the ring. On the
other hand, Moran. who. Is nine ears younger
than Johnson, nnd who wax touted as being
(ihyslcally perfect, wad near a point or col
arse when the gong sounded,
.But you needn't stop with Johnson In putting

AMONG tho list of Jobs for which Vvo
xxhavo no ecstatic relish Is that which
confronts John J. McGraw this spring,
when It comes to the matter of chopping
down his forces to 21 men.
This task will not light on Stalllngs
so heavily, as ho has a young machine
and Is In tho position to stand pat with
such people as dowdy, Rudolph, James,
Tyler. Schmidt, Uvers, JInrnnvllle,
Smith, Mugee, Connolly and Whlttcd.
To these 11 men, eight of whom are
under 25, Stalllngs is permitted to add
ten moro to round out a machine of first
THE NEW YOKK HANDICAP
But McGraw Is up against an entirely
different proposition. Where Stalllngs
has a machine that Is coming, a ma
chlno still young In years and experi
ence, McGraw has a machlno that has
started slipping and a line-up for tho
most part that Is fairly old In wars.
So McGraw, for the most part, must
either stand pat on his veterans or take
an enlarged gamble by crating several
vets back beyond tho trenches and tak
ing a chance with his youngsters.
THE GIANT LINE-UP
It Is admitted that to curb or suppress
tho Braves, John J., of Gotham, must
dig up more than one young Btar. Un
like Stalllngs, he can't afford to stand
pat upon a winning nucleus, composed
of eight young stars and four high

Tesrcau, Marquard, Fromme, pitchers;
Merkle, Doyle, Fletcher, Lobert, Grant,

and Robertson, outfielders.
Tho tough part Is that McGraw must

BERT KENNY SCORES
Joe McCarty Saves Himself
First Time by Trickery in
New York Fight.
NEW YORK. Feb. 16. There waa action
of a weird and unusual kind at the
Broadway Sporting Club during yester
day's matinee. Jon (Twin) McCarty was
knocked out not only once, but twlco for
good measure. In the first round of a bout
w$th Wild Bert Kenny, who substituted
for Jack Reynolds.
Kenny, 'who has been out for several months
with a broken hand evidently has recovered
hla wlldneae. He hit twin brother right on
(he Jaw; Joe was knocked Into the corntr on
lb ropes and waa out standing up, Iteferee
Haukup was about to wave him away a beat,
en man wben Joe came to long enough to
say. "Didn't you hear ttl Didn't you bear
ItT The bell, the belL"
Too trick worked, for the referee pulled
Kenny away and went over to ask the time
keeper about it. by the time he had found
out that the bell hadn't rung the twin had
recovered Then the referee ordered the
carnage to continue.
Kenny responded by knocking Joe into
another corner, where he fell In a sitting posi
tion The referee was obliged to grab Kenny
around tha waist tbla time and throw the
wild one clear across the ring Hut Uert came
tack at full till Tha referee thought Jt was
meant for btuiself, so he squared off with
Bertram. He finally dragged Bert away and
jtothar knockout was chalked up against the
elan McCarty. though there bad been no op
portunlcy to count him out.
rh crowd waa bewildered fey tha autcls
aueeeasiea ot events and alter the bout it was
necessary for Johnny Puan to hear the ref

his yoke to appease the popular clamor.

TRISTATE LEAGUE FUTURE
CLOUDED IN DARHNESS
Two Cities Will Not Be Able to Sup
It became evident at tho annual meet
ing of the Tristato League In the olltel
Majestic this afternoon, presided by
George M. Graham, that the prospects of
the continuation of tho circuit this sea
son as not very bright.
President Graham read a report to the
effect that he had visited all of the cities
composing the organization and that
things wero very discouraging. He said
that It Is understood that Wilmington can
not go through with a team this year. It
Is also doubtful If Reading will have a
franchise In the circuit. However, It was
Bald that several business men were witl
ing to put up money to back a team In
the latter city.
At the request ot several of the league
magnates. President Graham decided not
to make a definite announcement relative
to the continuing of tho league. He said
that the owners cculd havo a month
longer to make their plans before giving
out a statement whether the league would
be abandoned or not.

Unless Jack McGulgnn, matchmaker of
the National A. C, can get Sammy Har
ris, mnnafjer of Kid Williams, to elgn a
contract for the proposed "Wlllloms-John-ny
Kltbane fight, the two champions will
never come together In n Philadelphia,
ring. This fact was brought out at the
meeting enrly this morning In tho Hotel
Ulnghom between Promotero McQulgan
nnd Harry D. Kdwards, of tho Olympla
A. A., nnd Harris nnd Jimmy Dougherty,
representing Jimmy Dunn, Kllbanes ad

Tho meeting which was scheduled nt
the Bingham nt 12 o'clock midnight did
not tnko place until 12:30. At the begin

had secured Dunn's signature to a contract
calling for a purse of J5O0O for Kllbane to
meot Williams nt 122 pounds, ringside,
for a date tho early part of March. The
National promoter also Bald that Dunn
did hot attneh his narno to tho agreement
until the Cleveland man had spoken to
tMwards yesterdny nfternoon relative to
Increasing his bid of eSOOO for Kllbane's
It wns brought out that Dunn had
promised to box for McQulgan and that
unless Kdwards would give Kllbane JCOOO
tho former would slgij up with McQulgan.
Ddwardn refused, Dougherty said, speak
ing for Dunn, which wns also corrobo
rated by Edwards. The Olympla lmprcs
sarlo stated that ho offered Dunn $5230
and not more. Dunn then got In touch
with McQulgan nnd penned his John
Hancock to tho aforesaid contract.
After wrangling for more than an hour
and a half nt tho conference, Edwards
finally boosted his bid to both Williams
and Kllbane to $3500 each. Dougherty,
however, said that ho was Instructed by
Dunn not to consider anything less, JCOOO,
and oven not then unless McQulgan would
release Dunn from tho signed contract
tho latter had In his possession.
Edwards' offer of $5300 appealed to Hnr-
to whom he lost. And tho Gunboat
