JOHN WILL FIGHT PETE.
Arrangements for a Contest
Between Sullivan and
Jackson for a
Purse of $30,000.
Buffalo, N. Y., Dei-. 10.Arrange-
ments are being made by the New Erie
County Athletic club for a glove-fight in
this city between John L. Sullivan and
the Colored pugilist Peter Jackson. A
purse of $30,000 is being raised, and the
officers of the organization saj that they
have received word from Sullivan that
he will meet the Colored fighter for that
much money, which shall-go to the win
ner. The contest is to come off about
March 1, according to the present plans
of the officers. The club intends oc
cupying the Geneva hall on Genesee
street, near Michigap, which will be
handsomely fitted up as an athletic club
house, and the big fight will be the fea
tuie of the opening. Lawyer James C.
Fullerton, president of the club, said to
day that he had no doubt that the fight
would be arranged. Parson Davies,
Jackson's manager, has not yet been
heard from, but an affirmative reply is
expected from him. The club is com
posed of leading citizens wno take an
interest in sporting and athletic matters,
and there seems to be no reason why
the purse can not be raised.
There have only been three noted
Colored pugilists until Jackson came to
the front, these are: Thomas Molineux,
Robert Smith and Charles Jones. All
were Americans but gained their notor
iety in England. Jackson who promises
to rank in history with the immortal
Molineux, is a native of the West In
dies, and was born in 1861, In fighting
trim, he weighs agout 200 pounds. He
stands 6 feet 1 inches. He is a ma
chinist by trade, and did his first fight
ing in Svdney, N. S. W., during the
early part of 1882. He knocked Jack
Hayes senseless in eight rounds. He
was defeated by Billy Farnum, of Mel
bourne. He whipped Tom Lees in
thirty rounds for $2,000 and the champ
ion ship of Australia. The battles which
brought him prominently to notice on
this continent were with Joe McAulifle,
Patsey Cardiff and George Godiray, all
of whom he easily disposed of.
The atttempt to belittle the achieve
ments of Peter Jackson, the Colored
pugilist, has called out the following
witty effusion from the pen of Hugh Ke
ough of the Chicago Sporting Journal:
Peter's skin may be against him
Blacker than a rainy night-
But the blokes that stood forninst him
Learned too well they'd had a fight.
There's that dusky gent from Boston,
He don't want no more of Pete
Then McAulifie ran against him
Do him? Yes, like thrashin' wheat!
Then before him Cardiff stands up
Just to get it on the neck.
Smith had hardly put his hands up
When he got a sudden check
Smith, who carried cockney money
By the hundred thousand pounds,
Proved to Pete as sweet as honey
Punched out in a brace of rounds!
Fair and squate he made his record,
Always treated people right
Be his skin black, blue or checkered
Scratch him and you'll find him white.
Dignified you'll find him standin'
In the head set of the dance,
No concessions he's demandin'
Give tne Colored gent a chance.
"Coons is coons?" Well that's anrasin'
Now admit that pugs is pugs *r

Got no right to put on lags.
