Apropos of tlit- coming great tiattl-1

want to sav that Robert Fitwdmnitms
is the tno:-t deceiving person mat ever

"Why, Fit.simmons will be so weak
when he takes off the weight that I

fay to his manager and backers.
Well, the night for the fight rolled
around, and while Jack trained faith
fully, he was not in the shape he had
been in his previous battles. Demp

OPINIONS OF THE
As the time nears for the contest!
tomorrow night between old Bob
Fitzfcinimons and young Philadelphia

singular division of opinion amotig
the followers of the fighting game as
to who will be the winner.

ditions point to O'Brien's having an
easy thing or it. " Only 27 years of

golden of a pugilistic lifetime. More

with him through the allotted number
of 20 rounds. As to his condition
unless the ancient is Indulging in one
of his fakes to give him a better
shade in the betting market it can't
be any too good. Only recently he
was re-ixirted to have lroken down on
the read while training.

occasion because there were so many
