GRAHAM SCORES HOMER
SEW YOIIK, Feb. 10. They nto tho
dovo of pence at tho anniversary dinner
of tho National Lcnguo nt tho AValdorf
Astoria last night. It was good Ico cream,
too, They made speeches nnd drank
toasts, and altogether they mado merry,
for tho denr old National Lcaguo la 40
years of ago, and thoy gathered to cclo
brato In rltting fnshlon.
On tho corner of Great Jones street and
llroadway, In 1S76, the Nntlonnl League
was born. Long slnco It reached tho ago
of discretion (In splto of reasons to doubt
It nt times In tho last two or thrco years)
Hut now that It has reached n tlmo In Its
life when dark days, momentarily nt leait,
have passed, nnd when tho futuro looks
bright nnd prosperous, It was only moot
and proper that Its birthday should bo
eclobrated and that It should tako tho
form of n dinner.
(lathered about the hoard woro men of
affairs In tho professional and commer
cial life of tho city and country and base
ball owners magnates Charles II. lObbcts
Insisted upon calling thorn and those men
lost no opportunity to express hy tonguo
or handclap their Interest In tho great
national game and their sympathy for a
sport which ranks with tho greatest and
Sparo Is lacking to mention moro than
a fow of the COO or moro who sat about
t!u tables, but a few may be named.
John K. Tericr, massive and mannered,
president of tho Nntlonnl League, pre
sided, and ho made n speech, too a
rather short speech In which ho said:
"Kvery nation has a sport It calls Its
own, and as wo bcllevo that tho United
States Is destined to sit at tho head of a
table in tho councils of tho world (great
applause), so wo believe bnsebatl Is des
tined to bo tho greatest game In tho
world, even ns It Is tho national gamo
In this country."
And then he wound up by adding "Ilase
balt Is tho banner of American sports
even as Old CJlory Is tho banner or sym
bol of American liberty."
This was tho cuo for tho band, which
struck up "My Country 'tis of Thee," and
Then there was August Herrmann, ro
tund and rosy, chairman of tho National
Commission; Colonel John Jacob Iluppcrt,
handsome nnd dignified, nnd Captain Hus
ton. Jovial and Jolly. Comptroller Premier
gast. who was introduced as ono of the
most popular city officials, denied It.
Senator Morgan J. Hulkeley, former Gov
ernor of Connecticut, nnd the first presi
dent of tho National League, made a little
speech In splto of tho protest of tho "head
of tho family." Colonel A. G. Mills, tho
third president of tho league, also had a
fow words to say. as did Charles II. Eb
bcts. Irvln S. Cobb, William II. Taft and
Dudley Field Malono among others.
George A. Graham, representing tho
press, made, perhaps, tho homo run of tho
night. Ho analyzed tho development of
tho gamo and showed how It had grown
from it "stick" to a column. Yes, baseball
Is popular. .

BOXERS' TACTICS TO GET
COIN HURT BOXING GAME
Fans Rebel Against Methods and Object to
Continue as the Gold Goose Few
Matches Draw Big
MONEY-MAD tactics of modem dny
boxers are riding the grand old gamo
of flstlculllng to a stato of collapse.
Although promoters in this city have
been attracting capacity houses, from
practically every ring ccntio of Import
ance In this country como reports of a
noticeable falling off In tho attendance
at boxing contests, and men who lollow
the trend of the times In affairs pugilistic
unhesitatingly declare that tho lighters
and their grasping managers alone nro
to blnmo for this regrettable condition.
In searching for tno cause of decreased
patronage, promoters havo found conclu
sive evidence to show that tho fans are
wearying nnd rebelling against tho fren
zied financial methods of so-called stars
of pugilism and beginning to object to
continue as tho golden goose that fattens
tho purses of this gentry.
Instances where boxers nnvc earned
from J5000 to J15.000 and $18,000 for ap
proximately 30 minutes of actual fight
ing nro so numerous that they causo
little comment at tho time, but when tho
fighters In question begin to boast of
their earning power, rather than their
lighting prowess, then tho public starts
to nit up and tako notice.
Tho money received ror c nnd 10 round
battles by (lstlc celebrities often repre
sents tho amount that makes up tho
average man's yenrly Income. When tho
worklngman or sinnll business or pro
fessional man begins to think seriously
of this discrepancy In earning power ho
resents tho fact that tho averago lighter
Is capablo of drawing down enormous
pay for his services.
Boast of Earning Power
Investigation of present-day conditions
has demonstrated that this feeling on tho
part of tho general public is tho root of
tho lndlfferenco that is affecting tho box
In tho old days, when fighters really
fought, weeks wcro spent In preparation
for ring engagements. Today conditions
aro reversed. About all the training somo
of these notublcs do Ib a. day or so of
quels, will play a match with Jock Mul
llns, tho New York professional, who is
camping on tho trail of Soutar.
Plot by J. P. McEvoy

I M I
shadow boxing and road work, nnd then
they nmiouncp loudly that thoy nro lit
and "eager for a hard battle.
Recently the public ptlnts carried tho
story that the ambitions managers of
Ted Lewis and Charley White were In a
spirited dispute over tho earning ability
of their respective scrappers Each man
ager called attention to tho long list of
engagements that his man had filled,
quoting llgures of purses received and
outlining a list of futuro battles that
would keep the boxer busy Indefinitely.
In some cases it was stated that two
matches woro scheduled for ono week.
It Is Incidents like this that havo sick
ened the paying public of tho boxing
game. Naturally, It stands to reason that
when n lighter hus so many engagements
to 1111 his innln object when engaged in
battle will bo to protect himself from in
jury, and he accomplishes this by adopt
ing safety-llrst tnctlcs. Tho result Is that
the match le clops Into a boxing exhi
bition rather than u light, and tho fans
who havo paid nut good money to sco a
real scrap do not get an honest return for
These match-making mothods of certain
boxers piobably could ho curtailed, by tho
way, If the commissions that hnvo control
of the spoil In tho lending fistic centres
would co-opet.ite to put n stop to tho
practice. It ought to bo n simple mntter
to adopt a uniform rule barring a scrapper
from engaging In matches too closely In
succession, nnd If this rule Is backed up
by another one which would suspend a
tighter for several months If he failed to
put forth his best efforts In a light, then
tho evil besetting the sport would quickly
bo eliminated. Thero would bo honest, de
cisive lighting then and not so much Jab
bing and clover footwork.
When men like Ketchel, Papke, McGov
crn, Corbett, Cans, Wolgnst, Nelson, etc.,
wcro In their prime tho gamo flourished
nnd prospcted, but the present-day meth
ods of cortuln lstlc celebrities, who aro
safety-tlrst boxers nt all times, cannot
help but make pations sour on tho sport.
It hns been noted that slnco tho stnrt of
tho present season thero have been only
Ilvo matches that drow receipts running
Into ilvo llgures. New Yoik city had
three of these. Now Orleans ono nnd St.
Taul tho other. In practically every other
boxing ccntro tho average gate for a show
ranges from $2000 to JSOOl It takes a
match of exceptional promlso nowadays
to draw out tho funs. In tho metropolis
thoy like tho ring mastodons, nnd any
tlmo tho headllners In this division are
matched a big house Is sure to result, Tho
Crescent City Is partial to tho mldgots
and lightweights, whllo tho Saintly City
falls hard for any attraction In which
tho peerless Gibbons Is featured.
New York Money Centre
Tho big matches of tho 1915-10 season
to date drew gates as follows:
New York naturally has been tho big
money centre, but thero Is only one match
now remaining for tho metropolis that will
attract tho coin In bundles from fight
fans. This Is the proposed heavyweight
tilt botween Wlllard and Moran. Receipts
of $100,000 aro forecasted for this con
test. Minnesota enjoyed Its record gate under
legalized boxing when Gibbons and Ahearn
met recently. Thero are two matches in
