Sunday, September 27 1908 -- Herriman comments on a pair of boxing stories today. First, Jim Barry is apparently considering a fight against Jack Johnson (it would never come off). Second, lightweights Danny Webster and Ad Wolgast are set to meet in the ring next week at Jim Jeffries' Arena in LA. Wolgast would win that night, and had a long boxing career, but his is a very sad story of a punch-drunk fighter who ended up in and out of mental sanitariums.
