GOSSll' OF TUE BOXEKS.
When Jack Daly, the. light weight tham
plou of Delaware, returned to this city
from Wilmington yesterday lie brought a
story of tbe actions of Johnnie Glynn, since
the night of his fate exhibition wJUi Joe
Batcmun, that verify the exposure of the"
disgraceful affair as published lp The
Times the morning 'nfier the "contest."
Inspcakingof the fight Dalysaid:"GIynn
not only does not deny that the fight
was fixed, but he baa openly boasted to
his friends In Wilmington that he agreed
to lay down to Balenicn, and that he made
$700 out of the deal. Since he returned to
Wilmington he has been running around
spendiug money right and left and seemed
to havu an unlimited supply of ready cash
at all t linos."
"But ma) Im those people arc not sore
on him," continued Daly. "He is strutting
around the streets as if he owned the
town, but you can bet your life he takes
good pains to steer clear of- 'Skimmer'
Ryan's place. 'SLlmmcr' was one of his
bi-st friends and would put up for him at
any and all times. This did not cut any
ice with the kid, when he got ready to
pull off a fake, and the idea of tipping
ltyan and the rest of his personal friends
off to the fact that crcrtlilng was not
right never seemed to enter bis head.
"As tu that card that he published In one
of the Washington papers Ust week,
stating that llateman had whipped lilin by
chance-ami was not really his superior, it's
all rot. Every one knows that liateman
cannot whip one side r him, but Glymr
tiasn'l one chance in a thousand to get any
baiklng for another 'g"' with the Wash
This shows just where Mr. Glynn Mauds,
and it also sues to show thatHicstatcment
a local paper published to the effect that
he was "penniless nt ills home In Wilming
ton, Del.," was also "all rot." Those who
are ou the level paid no more attention to
this pipe story than they did to the balance
of the article.
Possibly the "hnir-.vlse men who hyp
notized themselves Into the bet left bat 01 nn
deliberately laKl down and stiHHl In with
those who had backed llaleman" had been
dreaming. The facts are, however, that
both of Glynn's seconds Ilobby Frankfort
nud Tony Stannanl say they knew he was
faking, and tried to make him go In and
fight. Perhaps then. Sir. Self-ordalned
Critic of honest criticism is the one who
has been asleep.
The affair was such a pahiable fake that
a novice at the business who didn't know
one fighter from the other could have seen
that It was noton the level. It should take,
then, a tremendous amount of nerve for an
old-timer' to attempt to smooth It over
by sajlng, "Oneof the strange, unaccount
able things about boxing Is that those un
familiar with the game arc nut satisfied
unless the boxers wade in one another's
gore, and this class fail to appreciate a
clever contest If It be bloodless.".
"Jim" Janey "and his backer called at
The Times office last night and posted a
forfeit of $100 for a fight with Billy"
Nally. As Hilly has announced on several
occasions that he was anxious to get on a
go with Janey, he now has a chance. He
made no reply to the challenge that Janey
recently issued, and unless he is simply
trying to imitate the example given pugil
ists by the Hon. Jim Jawful Corbett, It is
about time he came to the scratch.
Janey will leave his forfeit posted for n
weik, and In case Nully falls to materialize
with his end of the game, he -will meet any
l-ir.-KHind man in the country, "into,"

exception to the rule.'
At that time there was a minister named
Staples In Washington, one ot whose sons,
then aged 10, bad a desire to go to the
front. Lincoln heard ot him, and, after a
conference, selected him as his representa

The appoiutment of committees by the
Speaker will probably be earlier this year
than usual, as Mr. Reed, certain of his
election, is said already to have made up
the lists. This may enable Congress to
beat the records of years past and do
some business before the Chri-lmas holi
days. Owing to 1ESC being Presidential
election year, it is generally believed the
session ot this Congress will be a short one'.
Among the questions to be discussed as
party policy will be free silver, the tariff,
Hawaii, Venezuela, Cuba, bond issues and
tbe perennial pension laws. An authoriza
