SNARLING ON BOTH SIDES
Tommy Ryan's Advent Has Not Pro?
duced Good Feeling-Bolli Men
Cautious as to Publi.: Claims.
Corbett's Body Punch.
(Special to The Times-Dispatch.)
SAN FRANCISCO, August 1,?Prior to
tho advent of Tommy Ryan on the scone
Jeffries and Corbett spoke In a dignified
way of each other, and the Inmates of
tlie opposition camps patterned them?
selves after their chiefs. Now a vast
change Is noticeable. Tommy's presence
seems to hairo engendered maid feelings,
nnd tho rival factions are snarling nt each
other and saying the meanest things they
can tlil/ik of.
Home one told Jeffries that Ryan would
give ten thousand dollars to see him
licked. Jeffries remarked that lie'was sure
Ryan had been misquoted, ??she did not
believe that any kind of a mundane hap
uenlng would reconcile Tommy to being
separated from that amount of treasure.
Jeffries' henchmen employed coarser
sarcasm and aired their several opin?
ions as to tho extremes Tommy would
go tn retain his grip on a much less sum,
Of course, Tommy responded. Said he:
"I didn't say I'd give ten thousand to
seo him defeated. I told Iho truth when
I said that I had no idea of joining Cor?
bett when I came to the coast. Now
that the gauntlet has been thrown down,
though, 1 will say that I would part with
five hundred dollars to see Jeffries de?
feated. In any case I'm going to be In
Corbett's corner and do all ln my power
to got Jeffries whipped. I want to go on
? ecord, too, as saying that I am fully
convinced Corbett will take the champ?
ionship away from him."
Jim Corbett was rued because a whole
afternoon at the Jeffries camp was de?
voted to a discussion of the manner in
which Corbett had behaved under fire In
pnst fights. Delaney, it was said, de?
fended Corbett from Imputations ot lack
"I don't know who roasted mo and
who didn't, and I don't care," said Cor?
bett. "I'd like to ask i/elaney, though,
If he remembers the time he came to me
In New York and asked me to see Jef?
fries and Jolly him up a little bit. 1 was
playing at Kostcr and Elal's at tho time,
nnd Jeffries was training to f.ght Shar
koy. Delanoy told me that Jeffries was
scared to death, and ho wanted me to
give him some kind of a talk that would
make him feel good.
These are but ?amples of the bitter
things that arc being said from day to
day. and it Is beginning to look as lf
mutual ri?crlmlnatlon will be In order
right up to the day of tho contest.
Jeffries has worked with more regulari?
ty since tho doctor gave him permission
to resume training. Dally reports from
the camp go to prove that the champion
Is particularly anxious to be wind per?
fect and Improve his speed. All he does
Is with those particular ends In view.
As a rule Jeffries is rather guarded
when asked for an opinion respecting the
fight. His usual reply Is to the effect
that he holds no man cheaply and will
box as cautiously as possible when he
faces Corbett. He talks in an entirely
different strain when chatting with bis
cronies and makes It clear that he will
cut loose at a hurricane clip with the
man he helped to train at Carson City.
"They talk of Corbett's speed, but lf I
? don't carry Wm along fast enough to
make his head swim you may call me a
falso alarm." said Jeffries to a close
friend the other day.
"I know already that I can outpunch
Corbett and I am equally certain that I
can stand wear and tear better than he.
I am now satisfied, after various tests,
that I can cover ground just a.s quickly
as he can and as I have absolute contempt
for his new muscle and his up-to-date
The bronze statue of Dr, Hunter McGuIre to be placed In the Capitol Square
has already been caet, and little Is to be done before its shipment to Richmond.
The statue was designed by Mr, William Couper, an artist of admitted ability
and a native Virginian. His present work Is considered a masterpiece in concep?
tion and execution. The model has been cast In bronze by the Gorham Manufac?
turing Company, of New York, and their work also Is considered excellent. The
Gorham Company lips one ot the largest bronze statuary foundries .In America and
receives a gratifying share of the patronage of all the leading American sculptors.
The date of the unveiling ceremonies has not been fixed, but the event will be
Kome time In October. It Is also rather soon to pi epare the programme, and this

VC y "'' CORRETT'S GAME.
Corbett, so far as known, hasn't out?
lined IiIk light to anybody and ? person
who watche* Jim at work would be puz?
zled to fathom his intentions, l'or in?
stance part of his trninlng-nntai ]>? the

stand to his guns, while his shadow box?
ing and footwork with Rerger maid? it
appear as though Jim looks forward tonn
eiignRenient where he may be called upon
to employ get-away tactic?, it ?? more
than likely, however, thnt Corbett Is
Schooling himself for any kind of
emergency thnt arises. If he finds after
the first brusii nt close quarters thai Jef?
fries Isn't such n. fire-eater after all. he
may elect to make a breast to breast
fight of It and rely upon his hewly-doveU
oped punching force. If. on the other
hand, ho receives n. warning In the shape
of a wandering wallop, then be may play
plisa In the corner with the big fellow
and see how fnr his legs will carry blm ?
on tbe twentv-rour.d Journey.
Corbett appears to have great faith
In his new henrt punch. He receives
unsolicited testimoniale in regard to It
every ,iny from Sam Berger nnd big
Yftnk Kenny. Roth of the gentlemen re?
ferred to declare with emphasis thnt It
Is tho most distressing thing of the kind
thev ever bumped Into. "It's no use
talking," Raid Kenny, while In ? con?
fidential mood the other day. "I've been
with Klt?slmm?nfl for years nnd 1'vn
sampled some of hi? hard ones, but ?
don't know of anything I'd sooner avoid
than Corbett'.?? body punch. I guess It
would be pretty linrd to make the ave?
rage person believe It. I will frankly
say thnt I wouldn't hnve believed It my?
self, thnt It wns possible for ? man like
Corbett to get Into his present shape
nnd become such p piinlsher."
Rut even some of those who listened
open-mouthed to Yank's tribute to the
punching power of his chief remarked
afterwards: "Oh. sparring partners nl
wavs talk that wny. They have to."
The general situation Is such, in fact,
that if Corbett succeeds In turning the
tables on Jeffries the crowning sensa?
tion of pugilism will result

and thut the evening had been unusually
?inlet. From other sources, however, It
win' leurned thnt a shower of stones was
hurled at a Manchester car on South
Seventh Street, Richmond, near tho Byrd
Ktieet Station, early last night. No one
wns struck, but the car was hit by sev?
eral of the missiles, whlcli were thrown

was no repetition of the offense during tlio

but it did not materializo, A tie was
placed on the track of tho Seven Plues

Perhaps no man Identified ln any way
with the strike has been more freely and
unjustly criticised recently than Mr,
Orr, tho national representative. Ho
hns not sought publicity nor explana?
tions nor deemed any necessary, but ln
a talk with a reporter for The TtmoR
Dlspatch and In answer to questions, he
explained that bo bad not the power to
order a strike In tho first Instance, and
has not the power to declaro ono off.
As a matter of fact, tlie men nlono could
determine to strike, nnd they alone by
their action can declaro a strlko off.
The men reported to the general organi?
zation that thoy hnd presented nn agree?
ment to the company, and hnd been un
nlilo to secure any concession. The na?
tional officer was sont here ln his official
capacity to endeavor to effect on agree?
ment and nn amicable adjustment of
some kind to tho mon, and after familiar?
izing himself with the locnl situation
and tlie nature; of tbo demands mude, ho
sought to adju?t tho differences. Foil?
ing In this, he imported his failure to tho
local organization, which thereupon de?
termined to order ? a strike. The men
knew, says Mr. Orr, what to expect In
the way of support before they went out.
Now Hint the strike Is on, only tho men
In the local association have tho power
to call It off.
NO SETTLEMENT IN SICHT.
Asked ns to tho prospect of a settlement
of any kind whereby the strike would bo
terminated, Mr. Orr admitted that ho saw
nothing, but that something might de?
velop at nny time.
AVhllo this is not stated, it is believed
that an effort will bo made hy Mr. On?
to secure ? conference with Mr. Frank
J. Gould, tlie chief owner of the prop?

to be In this country, und It la n"i Im?
