f , Local fight fans will see a real
championship battle to-morrow.
While Johnny Gill is scheduled to
battle ten rounds with Jack Brttton,
the welterweight champion, to-mor
row afternoon at Stcelton, those who
know the game say this is long
enough to decide who is the best man
In the welter weight class. Gill is a
strong favorite.
There are many wagers on this bat
tle. Gill Is picked to win In less than
10 rounds bv a number enthusiasts
while others are wagering that the
fight will go the mlt. and that Gill
will have the best of "• all through.
The contract calls for laO pounds for
each flghtei it no. n to-morrow. The
battle is the wlndup of a bill that
starte at 3.0' P. M. Brltton has a
number of h ckers who are of the
opinion that lie Deal boy will not
, stand up. Britton has a dangerous
k punch.

11 looked as though Mike was due for a
. : short sleep. Shortly after the bout
i started Britton sent his right crash
. , ing against O'Dowd's jaw and the St.
■ Paul lad fell against the ropes. Brit
> ■ ton went after him and pummeled
; him all over the' ring, but Mike
i ! weathered the storm until the bell
l came to his rescue.
"O'Dowd outweighed Britton by six
l ! and one-half pounds and this handi
i i cap at times made the welterweight
i I champion wary of his aggressive op- i
' ! ponent. The St. Paul boxer showed :
! a rushing style which, while it failed
i | to phase Britton, nevertheless earned !
: O'Dowd considerable favor with the i
i large crowd of spectators.
"The majority of O'Dowd's rushes j
In the direction of Britton were
i cooly avoided and his blows were |
I cleverly "blocked, or Britton stepped
I nimbly inside the guard of the St.
[ Paul man with effective coun'ters
' with either the right or left hand to
j the face and stomach alternately.
! "After the first round and until the
' final bell Britton contended himself
| with giving an exhibition of his skill
| and seldom became aggressive."
Other* on the Bill
i Work is progressing nicely on the
I arena, at the corner of Front and
i Chestnut, Steelton, and Barrett says
everything will be set by to-morrow !
j night. Every man on the card has
, reported himself to be in good con- '
{ dition. Young Fulton, of Allentown, i
! will meet Mickey Dougherty, of Bal- |
! timore; Little Jeff, of Baltimore, will
I meet Mickey Devers, of Allentown,
j while. Kid Richmond, of Baltimore 1
j will open the show against Dick Got
walt. of York. Several other matches
| are in the making, and will likely be
j put on by Joe. Judging from the ad
vance sale of tickets, over 2500 will
greet the boys when tliey square off.
I The seats are going rapidly—so 1
I fast that Manager Barrett was
obliged to arrang for more seats
for the Olympia A. C.
Both Philadelphia and Chi
cago Are Making Bids For
I .
t hli'.iKo, Dec. 31.—l ew real base
ball trades have been mentioned
Since ilie close of the season in Sep
, tember, but that is no indication f
. that the presidents of the major i
league clubs, especially those in the j
. National League, have none in mind, j
| Some of them have. It would not!
be startling to ltear of a big deal or '■
two being closed this week, and the
• Cubs, pith President Veeck and Man-'
. ager Mitchell on tlie scene, are likely
to put over one of the biggest of the j
season with the Philadelphia club. I
t President Baker of the Phillies was .
i in Chicago -for two days in confer
, ence with Veeck, which adds to the !
possibility of a deal being made.
What the Cubs need is a left
handed pitcher. Eppa Rixey would
be a lucky strike and surely would
look fine on the staff with Grover
" Alexander and Jim Vaughn. A left
■ hander is what Manager Mitchell
I needs to beat teams like New York !
, j and Cincinnati, the two clubs that
are expected to stage a terrific fight i
for tlie championship again next sea- i
son. Rixey always has been effective
against both those teams and would 1
be a tremendous asset to the North
! Side team if lie were obtained, and
that he will he obtained is not at all
unlikely. •
"What will Manager Mitchell do
; with three southpaws?" may be
asked. He is not going to have three >
of them unless George Tyler does a
remarkable comeback after having!
nearly all of his teeth extracted. It ;
is not certain he will return to his I
old-time form, and because there is a '
possibility he will not. President '
Veeck and Manager Mitchell are
looking into the future and striving
to obtain a pitcher who will be
capable of taking Tyler's place in the
event he does not return to his
normal condition. Should he do so
i Mitchell will be able to use three i
I left-handers of unusual skill with
out worrving how to operate them.
Rixey is one of the best southpaw
pitchers in the National League. He ,
was developed by Pat Moran and for j
that reason is a clever ilinger. With
the cubs he would be a whale be- j
cause it would be the first time ne ,
was ot a real team, and he would be j
more than delighted to come to Chi- j
cago. according to a letter received |
here by one of liis former team mates ,
in which he is credited v ith saying ]
She would like to have a -nance to
| work again with a tevr. Dial had a|
1 chance to win the pennant He a.so ,
! likes Chicago and would welcome a
| transfer.

Victors Meet Independents
Tomorrow Night; Prob- j
able Lineup
Locust Gap cagers last night
triumphed over the Trenton Eastern !
League team, score 50 to 20. This
means that the local Independents j
will have to go some to-morrow night \
to win. It will be a much different
team representing Locust Gap than \
was here early in the season.
The victory at Mt. Carntel last I
night was due to the accurate shoot
ing by Moraski and Betz, who scored !
six and nine respectively. Harry j
Hough, the Trenton star, was unable !
to do better than one goal. Lynch i
was the big league star.
Probable Lineup
On the Trenton team were, Lynch, j
Hargraves, Davis. Hough and Watts. !
Reports say it was a great game
with Locust Gap doing sensational j
stunts all the time. 'The teams to- j
morrow night will line up as fol

days have seen the Oregonians in- :
dulging in only light practice. More 1
than 30,000 people will see to-mor- j
row's game.

realizes he will have to be in first

hitting Gill, and will continue
training until the day of the con

"Britton has been matched to
meet Benny Leonard at the New

Willie Loughlin
j That the Gill-Britton bout to taka
place at Steelton to-morrow after
noon. is an important battle is
| shown by the many inquiries from
I protors all over the State, and from
some outside of Pennsylvania. While
Johnny Gill has met boys in the

honors is stirring up m-nagers.
There is a difference of opinion us
to who is the best boys to meet in
order to get a light to a decision.
In a letter to the sport editor of

manager for K. O. Willie Loughlin
reters to Britton as the man who re
fused to meet Loughlin. He says:
AT ulsa, Oklahoma, promoter
offered Jack Britton a match
with K. O. Loughlin, and al
lowed Britton to name his own
terms, his own referee, the weight
and the number of rounds. After
everythnig for which he asked had
been agreed to, and forfeits posted,

a perfectly good reason for refusing
