ARCTIC STEAMER REPAIRED.
The Windward Will Soon Stau to
St. John's. Newfoundland, June J The
Peary Arctic Meamer. Windward, is ready
to inme out of dry dock to-day, having
fully completed the extensive repiirs
whkh have been in progress for several
months, anil will snoulv tail for bdnt.
Cape Ilreton. in command ot Captain Sam
uel W. Ilartlctt, to take on coal and sup-T-liex
for her voyage to the North.
While the new engines desired have not
lcin obtained, in consequence of the uttr
inability of manufacturers, both In Gnat
Britain and in America, to t ike up th!
contract, a new shaft and propeller have
been supplied, the old engines thoroughly
ovtrhauled and put in the best possible
order, so that at least a knot and one-halt
an hour In sieed has been gained, bring
ing the lndward up to the Kile of the
iyi-lS3 and 133 expeditions. Jn addition.

the Windward, as a whole, is In far bet
ter condition than he has been for year,
new boilers having Leen installed by Jlr.

over lo Jlr. Peary in 1S33.
The Windward will this year jull as
an American ship. the. necessary legisla
tion by Congress having been approved by
President ilcKInley, though, tiot having en
teted an American port, the formal regis
ter has not jet been Issued. Captain Bart
lett has however, a copy of the act. cer
tified by the Secretary of the Treasury,
upon which the United States Consuls and
foreign authorities of any port will per
mit the Windward to llv the Stars and
Stripe-. The rebuilt Windward will be.
therefore, the first Arctic expedition steam
er to carry the Stars and Stripe", at the
peak since the ill-fated Polaris left the
Brookbn Navy Turd In July. 171. 'tnder
command of Captain Charles F. Hall, who
died on board a few months later.
The expedition will sail from Sidney
about Julv 1 and proceed directly, with
a call at Disco, to Etali. North Greenland,
Mr. Peary's winter quarters, where In
structions from him will doubtless bo
found, or. If not. will be awaited. The
Windward will take with her tho maxi
mum quantity of coal whkh she can car
ry, additional lumber, oil. sugar, arms,
ammunitions, provisions, scientific instru
ments, and everything else necessary for
Jlr. Peary's work. The Wlndw,ird also
take two new whaleboats, built at Ne.v
Bedford for the Peary service, thorough
ly equipped In everv detail.
It is. however, quite possible that Sir.
Peary may have attained the pole this
spring, in which case he will, of cojrc. re
turn with the ship. If not. the addition)!
equipment, with what remains of the forty
tons of hupplies left at Etah by the Diana
last vtar. will be ample for the remainder
of the time which ha wilt devote to hU
work. Upon the arrival of the Windward
at Etah, Air. Peary will assume command,
and her further movements will be sul
ject to the conditions of his work and to
No passengers will be taken on the
Windward. a.s the Danish Government
qualified Its permission to land at the
Greenland ports with the conditions that
tourists should not be carried. Mrs. Peary
and Miss Peary, however, will go North
on Ihc steamer as far as Etah, and it is
possible that the Windward. If she re
turns, will bring home the Robert Stein
party, landed near Cape Sabine by the Di
ana in August last.
The Pourr In n Ponnil of Coal
From Casslcr'si Magazine.
Eet us take a pound of what we will call i
average coal, containing, say, 19,000 heat
units. This woJld be somewhat smaller in
size than a man's fist. A pound of this
coal. If expended in mechanical work,
would give us 255 horse-power. Imagine at
the time of the Pharaohs two long lines of
men extending over half a mile all pulling
steadily at the command of the task mas
ter at a great rope to nls some huge obe
lisk, and as ou tee them pweatlng. tug
ging, and straining think again of this
unall lump of coal. In which nature has
pi. iced an equal amount of power. In some
countries men who have been specially
trained as porters to carry heavy loads on
their backs will, as a full day's work,
carry a total of from KO to (Mo pounds a
distance of one mile. And jet each has
expended but one-third of the power stored
up In this pound of coal.
An exceptionally strong man haR been
known to be one-half horse-power of work
as his mightiest effort, but In two and :i

Fuch men putting forth such extreme ef
fort at rope or crank or crowbar: as they
fall bick, red-faced and pulling to catch
their breaths, we might Imagine this little

much as jour whole companj'. and then

Turning to the typo of submarine torpedo
bott, we find that many of the desiderata
for such a craft are found to be Impossible
according to the showing made In the
"Holland." which Is undoubtedly the most
advanced example. -For instance. It is de
sirable to get speed as great as that of the
fastest torpedo boat; to have every great
radius of action; to have a means of direct
ing the course by vision upon a moving ob
ject while remaining Invisible beneath the
surface: to have the vessel very habitable
and comfortable for great lengths of time:
to have unlimited quantities -of air for
power and for respiration bj the crew.
These are not attainable at present, and
there Is no prospect that they will bo until
some entirely new and most efficient way of
acquiring power be discovered and until
some startling discoveries In chemistry are
made. Admiral Hlchborn, U. S. N., In the

i-ernj jntn. norse racing Is a pecullir
sport, and the unexpected often liapjxi.s.
There Is no ue den Ing tbe fact that Sam

memlier he was jj, all O.!ds-oii favorite

Burn, the peer of all Western jockevs. will
lie astride or the wn of St. F.otI.iii ai d

Sam Phillips will lie a pronounced lavorite
at post call next Saturday afternoon.
The winner of the Tennessee Drby, Flor

Florizar belongs to the Scroggan Bro...
and i by imp. Florist out of Czarina II.
He has proven himself as game ami as re

he was kicked at the post in his 1 it,t out at

"It is the unexpected which most frequent

big, freckled south paw Is festered and
fevered, and his surgeons have warned
him that it would In- foolk-h on his part to

For tbe sake of the Ilstlc jrarno I should
hate very much to see Fitz permanently
dL-ablcd. I would much prcrcr lo see his
hands well nnd lit. and ee hint pilled
against Buhlln. In a talk with Jim Corbett
the other day, I said to him: "Now. Jim.
lell me the squire, level truth about this
young fellow Buhlln. Has he got anything
lik an even chance agalnts FitzsImmonsT"
Tho response was: "Ys. he has, on my
word of honor. Of course. Fltz. well and
tit. Is llaLle to knock any one out. But. let
me tell ou this; Buhlln Is 6 feet 2 nUh,
weighs Ko poiindj". stripped, and Is the
bukiest, stiffest fellow I ever had a glove
on with. You saw bow I Jarred Jeffries
and shook him up when I hit him on the
Jaw in tho ninth round of our fight. I
made him rock from head to toe. Well. In
my bouts with Buhlln, I hit him on the
Jaw just as hard as I ever hit Jeffries, and
It took twice as man) punches to shake him
as It did to Jolt the boilermaker.
"Talk about Sharke) or J Srks having
the ability to stand punishpient. I'll bft
no man alive can stand more punching with
eqiianimltv than Itiililln e..n tji . ,i n -..
for It, lie has a chance wliii any of those
big, husky fellows."
And now to think that Gu Isn't to get
his charce at II fj. this month .is ho rnmllv
hoped and exrected. It Is a disappointment,
inuexil, for the levers of ptirfiliiui.
They will rot lx wholly unconsoled. ho.v
evcr. for Billy Madden and Tom O'Rourke

and Sharkey to take place at the Seaside

of June a. They will probablv box the best

My talk with Corbett the other tlav was
a most interesting one. I called his atten
tion to the statement Jeffries had made In
Di)ton. O. last week thit Corbet-, had
ditnanded half or the fighters' portkn of
the gate money when they met at Corey
Island, ard a-ked him how he liked b-.ln-r
designated "a short skate" by Jeffries. Ho
fiishrd up Inilgnantly and replKel: "lie's,
a II ir. ami I'll tell him s0 to his face. He's
a nice one to talk about any one being 'a
short .kate.' Why. where would he Ik but
for me? The fitst I ever heard of him was
when I began training for my light with
rl zsimmons at Carson I'lty. Gere Van
Court, a friend of mine, wrote me from Los
Angeles that there w is a big. h'jskv fellow
down there named Jeffries that he 'thought
might be userul to help me In my trtlning.
As I wanted a man or that kind I sent for
him., nm! when h arrive.! he hadn't decent
clotnes to hi. hack, and I gave 1 Im a hun
drd dollars to bu) him to-ne. lb- didn't
know an) more about tightln-r tlwi than a
hog does about a holidii). anil the big bull
don t know much more )t. Now, 111 tell
yon the racts about the division of the,
money. When the match wa made Mr.
Slick Billy Brady thought that his chir-i-pion
was going to have a regular plcnk;
with me. '1 hat's why he was so willing to
have me mtt Jeffries. Ho proposed that
we cut the money up n third.- ore-third to
Jeffries, one-third to himself nnd ene-'hlrd
to me. sa)lng: You Have ro manager to
divide with. Jim. so thta will te fair all
round. I rerlied. 'Well. I'll have goeid big
expenses any way. I'll tell -mi what hl'i
do Give me S2,U ovr and aliovc my one-tl-lnl.
to compensate me for my training
and lncl lental expenses. "It's a go." aid
"Well, early on the night of the fiijht
the prospects for a big house dldirt look
erv bright, -o what does Mr. Sllpnery
Dkfc Brady do but come to me with a
proposition thit instead of dividing th
money, as we had agreed, we split the re
ceipts In two, one-half to go to Jjffrles
and himself and one-half to me. Ann see
he thoiuht that if he gave me the JJ.V0
over nnd above my third of the receipts
that he would get rruch the worst of It.
I accepted this last proposition, which re
member. John, was made by Mr. Brady and
not by me. Later on the house filled up
nnd then when Mr. Brady raw tint be
had made a mlstnke he came bark to me
and wanted me to agree to go back to the
original proposition. What a sucker I
would have been to let him plav fast and
loose with me. I wouldn't do It. "I held hl-n
to his own proposition, the last one he
made, and the result was that, though I
lo-t th tbht. I got as much money as
Mr. Brad) and Mr. Jeffries put together.
That's what has made the big fellow sore."
Sneaking about his fight with Jeffries.
Corbelt said: "Had 1 fought as I or.S.n.,Hy i
pianneo m) n.utie i woum nave won. I icei .
Just as sure as that I am alive. M original !
intention was to so far outrolnt Jeffries i

would hive a decided lead over him. Then I
In the twent) -fourth and twentv-fifth
rounds I Intended to throw science to the
winds and having weakened him down, to
go right at him nnd slug with him until
I put him out. But I got along with him
.o much better than even I expected that I
thotght I could do the trick inside or ten
tounds Hnd so I slugged with him In the
eighth and ninth rounds. Unfortunately for
me. while I punched him almost out. as
every one saw. I hurt my hand very se
verely in so doing, and consequently I had
to let up In my hard hitting, and I was
saving m)self for the last two rounds
when the end ca.ne so Unexpectedly.
"Irf-t mo tell you that that hit was an ac
cident. I was as strong and as quick and
ns fresh In the last round, comparative!)
speaking, as I was In the tenth or fifteenth
and Just as sure or winning. To show you
how perfect my condition was, let me give
jou my word of honor that for the first
ten rounds I didn't even take a drink of
water. When my seconds asked It they
would ruh my legs I answered: No: leave
them alone. There's nothing the mutter
with my legs.
"I didn't tell them anything about my
hands being hurt nt that time, because I
feared that ir I did they might say some
thing about It between tho rounds to some
outsider and that the knowledge might be
passed rrom man to man until It reached
some rrlend or Jewries, who might inrorm
I him of It and so give him fresh confidence.
It was a very uniortunatc thing tor me
that I did not pursue my original plan of
liattlc. Believe me. If I ever told tbe truth,
had I not got overgay and fought my slug
ging fight too early in the contest I would
be the champion to-day and not Mr. Jeff
ries." W-hen I asked him about his future plans
Jim replied: "I am going to fight Jeffries
again next jpar Just as sure as he and I
live. When Brady said that I would have
to fight Jeffries again in two weeks or for
ever lose my chance at him he was bluffing,
and no one knows It better than he and Mr.
"He knew that the condition of my hands
would not permit me to fight, even If I
wanted to. but he also knew that the con

Kid McCov's relinquishment of his match
with Tom Sharkey does not surprise me.
I watihed him very closely during his fight
with Jack Bonner and I saw then that, de
spite his marvelous cleverness, three times
during that contest he had a very close call
lnde-ed from defeat. I was not the onlv one
who saw- this, for dozens of men around the
ringside momentarily expected to see the
burly miner land one of his rlghthand
swings and put him out. I think the kidney

or mree rounds nun mm rar more severely

k(1J. 0r Jefrr.es he would be In great danger
of still more severe body punishment than
he got from Bonner,
Either of there men Is far stronger, more
PoerruI and more weighty than the miner,
and consequently either of them Is likely
In close quarters to break his fine waist In
two with kidney punches.
In my opinion. McCoy Is the best IdO-pound
man the ring has known since the advent
or the Queensbcrry st)le or fighting, but I
think the thamplonshlp or the world Is be
vond hlr reach. Of course, my thinking this
does not make it so.
I would like to see Charley attain his su
preme ambition, Tor I am a believer In fistic
skill over mere brute force, and I believe it
ls well for the pugilistic game whenever a
skillful man defeats one whose main ability
lies tn brute strength, but. as I snlrt before,
skill without strength Is hardly capable of
attaining the supremest honors of the ring.
Tommy B)an declines n mectlns with
Jack Boot, and thus are the Eastern ad
mirers of fistlana debarred seeing a match
which many expected to end disastrously
to the Syracusan. In meeting with Boot,
Bjan would have to accept the handicaps
of youth, height, reach and strength. leav
ing him only the possible advantages of
skill and experience.
He has. weighed all his chances carefully,
and he has corre to the conclusion, appar
ently, that defeat was Ircvltable. Besides.
In his encounter with McCoy, he Injured
hLs back, and It has been lame ever since.
I think he Is wise in taking the stand he
I would suggest as a good substitute for
B)an against Hoot, Joe Walcott. The Bar
badoes Demon Is now convalescing from
a very severe attack of typhoid-pneumonia,
but I think that In a few weeks the chances
are that be will round Into perfect health.
Joe Cho)nski has wisely. I think, recon
sidered his determination tn meet Walcott
again, and Boot would be Just the man to
put the Demon to his trumps.
