The formation of an Eastern League of
amateur athletic clubs would be a very good
way to promote harmony In the ranks of the
warring athletes. This Leaguo would con.
solldate under its own organisation the elubs
now arrayed under the hostile banners of the
N. four A's and A. A. U. President White,
of the Berkeley Athletlo Club, would make
an able President of the uew League. His
remarks regarding National champlonshlph
hit the nail squarely on the head. The
Berkeley C ub, though a member of A. A.U..
still In reality ocouulcs a neutral position be
tween the two existing organisations.
It is a new and prospectively influential
club and its mediation ot the deplorable hos
Ulltyof thotwo factions could not te objec
tionable to either. As President While says,
tho ohampiouship in either the N. four A. or
A. A. u. does not count for what it should.
The athletic supremacy, in any event, of tho
N. four A. and A. A. U. combined would
mean a great deal,
Tho chief athletic event of to-night is the
annual amateur boxing and wrostliug cham
pionship meeting of tho N. four A's at Tam
many lull. The following aro the events to
bo contested: Doxing, bautam-w eight, 105
pounds and under : feather. 115 pounds aud
under ; spec.al. 125 pounds and timlor s
welter, 140 pounds and under; middle, 158
pounds and under. Wrestling, 135 pounds
and under. Gold medals go to first and nil.
ver ones to pocoud in each ovout. In tho
preliminaries. Saturday, John Laik ns. of the
Hornbachor Club, and J. J. Gorman, of the
Star Athletio Club, were the winners of
the 125-pound boxing bout. T. ,1. O'Dav.

Otto Cramer, Hornbaoher Club, won
the 135-pound wrestling. The winners
of the 1 IB-pound loxing bonis were A. Trie

John Kelly, National. The winner of the
105 pound boxing wero F. liaudall, llorn

Trof. Graves, the colored pugilist, who
seems to have a hard time to get on a match,
now wants to meet Peter Jackson. Graves
is tho winner of thirtv.four battles. He has
suftered but one defeat unci that at the hands
of Jimmy Carroll, of Brooklyn, four years
ago. He has improved vastly since then.
Jack Lyman desires a benefit. His pluck
in standing Hill v Murray off during thirty
nine bloody rounds, when ho claims ho was
sick, is phenoineual. Lvman was trained
down seven pounds in one day the day he
fought. His Illness prevented his eating anv.
