THE SATURDAY MORNING COURIER
.IwrkMin Wetrameit Home.
Tho White Star liner Teutonic, which
arrived at her dock hint week from Eng
land, had on lmnril pugilist Peter Jack
on, the heavyweight champion of Eng
land and Australia. Peter waa dressed
in a stunning ault of black English
broadcloth, Prince Albert coat, n wltlo
Piccadilly collar, ami russet shoos. Ho
wore a high shining k hat, and
carried an umbrella, sovornl exKnsivo
canea and a largo grip. Voter wbh ac
companied by Ainbroao Precco, a well
known English Jockey, and ThomiiB
Davis, whom ho mot for tho first timo
on shipboard. "Parson" Davlea waa on
hand to welcomo tho colorol pugilist,
and tho party nt onco wont to tho Occl
A press representative mot Jackson at
tho hotel lato In tho afternoon and ac
companied him to tho Grand Central
depot, whoro tho party left on tho 0:10
o'clock limited express for Chicago.
Peter looked tho picture of health,
although hid former mamlvo frame la
somewhat attenuated. Ho Bnya ho
nhvaya loses flesh on an ocean trip.
"I had an enjoyable time In Lunnon,''
raid Jackson, with an unmistakable
Cockney accent, "and I disliked to
return ao soon'. If tho 'Parson' had not
arranged a match with Corbott, to tako
place next June, I would bavo remained
on tho other aldo until tho latter part of
next month. Tlila proposed tight with
Corbott also compelled mo to abandon
my trip to tho West Indlea to aeo my
people. And then, you know,lt'a cheaper
to live in England than it la hero. I've
been practising economy of late, you
know, too," and he smiled aa ho aaid
"I auppoacd you received the nowa of
your being matched with Corbott Joy
fully!" waa asked.
"Yea, indeed," waa tho reply. "I know
H would conio Booner or later."
When asked where ho preferred to
v have the fight take place, he aaid it waa
immaterial where ao long aa ho waa
assured that there would be no Interfer
ence, and where he could get the biggeat
puree. He doesn't like to tight south
because of the race prejudice that exlsta
Jackson will remain in Chicago about
fortnight or thereabouts, when he ex
pects to visit Mount Clemens and
recuperate there perhaps a week. Then
. he will ko to Ban Francisco, He will
return east about December with his
V'Uaole To Cabin" company. Peter
aM he never knew until bow tae great
reevect entertained for' him by the
American public. Fully BOO persons
surrounded him as he stepped off the
gangplank ' of the Teutonic, eager to
shake his band and wish him luck in all
, his undertaking. The "Parson" showed
Jackson a copy of the articles which he
had algned for hia match with Corbott.
The latter read them over carefully, and
declared that they were perfectly satis
factory. "Jackson will -require only threo
months to.traln," the "Parson" said. "I
.haven't made up my mind as yet where
we will train. I can assure you, how
f ver, it will be near tho place where the
fight comet of."
Peter met both Jaek McAulife and
Charley Mitchell In London. He spoke
In the highest terms of hie kind treat
ment at their hands. Mitchell assured
him that he would be on hand to tight
Gorbett before the club that offers the
most money. Jackson further said that
fighting is dull abroad and that America
can expect a big consignment of English
"pugs" over here in the near future.'
.. HhMI van Mill Hold Title.
Corbett signs himself champion of the
world by virtue ot his defeat of John L.
Buillvan. It must be remembered that
hla title ia that ot boxing champion.
There ia a wide difference between box
ing and fighting. Buillvan, by defeating
Ryan on the turf, won the champion
ship of the world, and again when he
defeated Jake Kilrain, and he is still the
prite ring or lighting champion. Cor
bett and Buillvan mot and contested for
the boxing championship ot tho world
under Queensberry rules and Corbott
won; therefore the latter can claim only
the boxing championship. To win the
prise ring championship Corbett must
meet Sullivan on tho turf and do battle
according to the London prize ring rules.
As. the old style ot fighting is rapidly
degenerating it is very doubtful if Sulli
van i 1 ever be challenged by Corbett
or anyone else to defend the title of
prise ring champion. Jackson had
almost glyen up hopes of meeting Cor
bett untlj the other evening at the
Columbian Athletic club, where Jack
son's manager, Parson Davies, and Cor
bett each deposited 11,000 to bind a
match between the two boxers, and
even now it .Is far from a certainty
whether they will meet. In fact the
colored boxer la impressed with the idea
that Charley Mitchell will surprise
Corbett when they meet in the ring, and
In the event ot Corbett being defeated
by1 the Englishman that would let Peter
out of it for at least a year. If Corbett
Oon't sign with Jackson, now that the
rdsjposlt awmeyia put up by both, it ia
..- doubtful It they will ever come together
''The sjsm tiskeg jfeyara ,W pugilistic
results aro not over anxious to lay threo
to ono that George Dixon, tho world's
featherweight champion will defeat
Eddy Pierce on Monday, August 7,
before tho Coney Island Athletiu club.
These sngo gentlemen aver that tho
colored lad has "gono back" decidedly In
tho past two years, and is no longer tho
the midget phenomenon ho was when
ho defeated Niinu Wallace, of England;
Abo Mills, of Austrnlia; and Cal Mc
Carthy, of America. Constant work and
an Indulgence in tho good things of life,
they claim Impaired his physical (towers
and deprived him of that wonderful
celerity of action which, up to tho pres
ent time, has always brought victory to
his standard. Pierce, they assort, is
young, strong, temiHiratonnd courageous.
Ho is nearly, If not quite, as clover as
Dixon, as nimble in his movements as a
panther and n veritable tiger In buttle.
Jlls stamina has nnver been weakened
by alcoholic or other excesses, and in a
bruising contest these qualities aro suro
to operate to his advantage. Moreover,
ho Is ambitious to a degreo, and brainy
jib well. Ho knows that a victory over
tho gallant llttlo mulatto who has so
long held tho world's championship
means fortune, as well as famo to him,
mid ho will sparo no effort to wrest tho
sceptro from his grasp. Dixon, however,
Is not caring what tho public thinks,
mid Is preparing himself for a good stiff
encounter. Ho is at Coney Island and
does his work with a will. Tho lads will
weigh In nt 120 pounds on tho day of
tho battle. Six thousand will reward
tho victor for his prowess, whllo $500
will servo to solace the loser for his
bruised body and tho mental disturb
ance ho is suro to undergo.

Gus Tuthill on behalf of Jack Dempaey
to fight Dick Uurgo ot England for

tho articles havo been forwarded to
London for tho Englishman's signature.
Tuthill at onco wired Dempsoy what

Billy Smith and his trainer visited
the Police Oatette office yesterday
morning, and after discovering that
money really had been posted on behalf
of Dempaey to fight' Burge, Smith burst
into a flood ot angry passion. Ho said:
"This is a ttno how d'ye do, isn't it?
It's a cloverly concocted plan to do me
out of a match with Dempsoy; but I
don't care. Tho American) public aro
not fools, for they will see at a glance
that It is not my fault. I havo tried
everything to bring Dempsoy to time.
There is ono consolation, however, I
know I can lick him." Ho subse
quently sent tho following telegram to
Joe Lewis ot Boston)
"Send 81,000 at once to tho Police
Oatette office to cover Dempsey's money,
I will make him tight, or prove to tho
sporting world that ho is afraid."

Joe Lewis, Billy Smith's backer,
arrived in town from Boston Monday
morning. In tho afternoon ho went to
the Police Oatette office and dettoslted
$1,000 on behalf ot Smith to tight any

Dempaey preferred, for $10,000 a Bide.
Gus Tuthill, Dempsey's financial sup
porter, met Smith at Warren Lewis's
late on Tuesday night, and in tho
presence of a Sun reporter said:
, "I took on Burge first because I
believe he ia easier game than you are.
I will give you a chance to tight Demp

Boston, August II. Special Count i:u
Correspondence.- Tho tlrst chapter In
tho history of miniature vehicles must
bo do voted to a study of tho little
mechanical hobby horse, which is well
known In Franco as tho dada. At first
sight It seems Btrango that tho modern
voIocIihmIo should bo in any way related
to this child's toy, which Is set in motion
by cranks that are placed in tho horse's
head and are moved by tho hands. Tho
connection, however, Iwtweon tho two
mnchlnoH Is clear, and Is but another
proof that tho history of tho velocipede
is inseparably connected with tho history
of veloclmanla. Of thia there aro abun
dant traces In tho numerous inventions
which have been inndo since tho most
remote time. It la alleged that tho
Egyptians and tho Latins, in engraving
Ukhi their obelisks Images ot persons
mounted on two-wheeled vehicles, had
at least somo idea of tho velocipede.
M. Baudry do Saunior, an authority
on this subject, has tried bard to find
out from libraries and from tho reminis
cences of all the old cyclers tho various
stages through which tho machine had
passed, and he has discovered traces of
it as far back aa the fifteenth century.
1IIHTOKV OP TUP. WIIF.F.I..
Other traces appear in tho sixteenth
century, and in tho seventeenth century
an English chronicler roports that a
Jesuit named Hiclus traveled through
a part of China on a machino with threo
wheels. Until 1700, however, there is no
evidence that cycling was practiced in
real eumest. 'At that dato appeared
for tho first time tho "celerlfores," de
signed by M. do Sivrac. This machino
consisted of two wheels, moving on tho
samo axis and fixed below a woodon
beam, which waa fantastically carved
and otherwise adorned. On this tho
rider mounted in such a manner that
his feet touched tho ground and, wero
thus ablo to give an impulse to tho
ontlro machine. Next In order ia tho
machino which Baron Druls perfected
some time afterward and to which in
consequence tho name Draislenno has
leon given. Beforo this time, howover,
the prototype ot our graceful bicycle
waa known by another name, that of
"veloclforo," which by the way, waa tho
titlo ot a comedy by Dupaty and Mo
reau, which waa presented at tho
Vaudeville in Parle in 1704. In 1818
Baron Drals modified tho machine. Ho
convinced tho idea of a guiding wheel,
that la to say, he provided the front
wheel with jointa and a ateerlng appa
ratus, which permitted the rider to fin
whatever direction he pleased and with
out necessity of descending from tho
MIOHAUX'h OHKAT IUntOVKMENT.
Ono can readily imagino that all these
novel changes furnished tho French
wits and humorists with an occasion1 for
making numerous jeux d'eeprit and
caricatures, which, on account ot their
originality, aro today tho delight ot
Though Franco was tho only country
which at this period took an interest in
cycling, It was not long before England
enmo into tho field with numorouB Im
provements, among which may be
mentioned those appertaining to the
hobby horse, tho facilitator and tho
various vehicles moved by hand. Tho
next great improvement waa made in
1855, when Michaux and his eon con
ceived the ingenious idea of adding
cranks and eda)s to tho guiding wheel.
There has been much discussion of lute
aa to whether tho elder Michaux or hia
son waa the real initiator of the pedal,
and the conclusion arrived at, ia that
each of them is equally entitled to praise
for thia improvement. Anyhow, tho In
troduction of tho pedal gavo a great mi
pulso to tho practice ot cycling, and
this impulse has continuedto grow -ever
greater up to tho present time.
Tho history of cycling in Franco since
tho days of Michaux is well known.
Everyone remembers tho largo ma
chines, through which the TerrontB,
tho Duncans and the Mcdingers ac
quired reputations. Great,-howi'vr,'UB
wero the records that wero mado on
this machino with the immense wheel
and extraordinary as woro tho .perfor
mances, it is certain that many'.pcrsoiiB
held aloof from the sport on account ot
the great size ot tho wheel. In 1800 a
number ot wheelmen made tho run
from Paris to Rouen, a distance of about
125 kilometres, in 10 hours and 34
minutes, the winner being I.-Moore,-an
Englishman. Another great race was
the one from Paris to Brest and return
1,200 kilometres which was orga
nized by Pierce Glffard, of tho -Potl
Journal. This memorable test of skill,
which was carefully prepared and ad,
mirably advertised, and moreover, was
favored by tino weather, waa u wonder
ful success Charles Terront covered
this long distance without stopping in
72 hours, and at the end of tho race
felt none the worse for tho work. A
hundred competitors victorously trav
elled over the entire course, a signal proof
that cycling had at length become a
practical Bport and that tho bicyclette
had won an enduring favor in Franco,
From day to day the number of cyclora
increases. There is no sport which ia
more healthy, more easy and more
practical than cycling.
Several races have taken place in
Franco of recent years, esjicclally nota
ble being thoso between Paris and Nan
tes and Paris and Trouvllle, tho former
of which was organized by tho ltevuc
ilea Sport and the latter by tho Matin,
Great interest was also taken in the
1,000 kilometres race, which was run on
February 24, 25 nnd 20 last by Charles
Terront and Corrc, in tho presence, of
50,000 spectators, over tho wooden track
in tho winter Velodrome. This race
attracted great attontlon from tho press
of tho ontlro world, and gavo such a
"lioom" to cycling that all tho French
and foreign manufacturers found them
selves suddenly Hooded with orders.
To persons who aro thinking of buy
ing u machino this advice Isglvent Bo
foro you buy examine tho various kinds
of machines thoroughly, and, abovo all,
make up your mind clearly as to what
you want. Just as n horseman ought to
know something about tho nnntomy of
his horse, so tho cycler ought to make
himself thoroughly acquainted with tho
machino to which ho intends to trust
himself during his rides. W.
WOMEN AND BICYCLES.
Doctors Hay tho Wheel" I Unhealthy
Every fair night there may bo seen
numbers of men and women on bicycles
whirling through our streets. It is
wortli spending somo timo to watch tho
frogdlko bend of tho male riders, who
look as it preparing to leap into a pond,
nnd tho oscillating feet and rebellious
skirts of tho women. There will como
necessarily visions of spinal diseases
and muscular contraction for males nnd
of tho ailments which overtake females
and which often bnfflo the skill of the
doctors. Our medical men have long
known tho vnluo of heeding their advice
that women climb as far as possible,
and abstain from tho too frequent and
consequently unhealthy use of the feet
at Bowing machincB, which frequently
produce ill-health and often untimely
death. Very llko tho treadmill action
necessary to operating a sowing machino
is tho movement of tho feet of females
on bicycles. Of courso it is conceded
that tho bicycle is hero to stay, and bo
aro tho doctors. The prescribing gentle
men will havo enough to do in tho
futuro unlcsB tho single-wheel riders
straighten their spine, and women cease
to use the single wheel with its stingy
little pad altogether. The temalo form
was not mado to rido straddle. Men
like to accompany females, but how
many of tho former would marry tho
horoino of a bicycular adventure? One
look at the ungraceful attitude of the
rider would cause most men to seek
wives among women who still cling to
tho aide saddle, the modest contrivance
of their mothers and grandmothers. If
Eros does not laugh ho certainly must
weep when ho Bees beauty on a single'
wheel. T. H. S.
