Sailor Tom Sharkey's notion that he is
mnflbof championship stuff and ids evident
int".Uon to make a dash for the pugilistic
tltl" is drawing much attention front the
spoHing fraternity, and seema to be of
particular interest to sporting writers.
"Pringle,'' speaking of the sailor, says:
lf we lake a man like Fttzslmmona as
first class, or Sullivan when at hia best,
or Mucc wnen at his best, It la easy to find
thai a man like Sharkey is not first class
yet, whatever he may become.
0i comparison Sharkey did not In any
sens - wnutever reach the standard of Flu
slp.mons oh a fighter or a boxer when they
met, and it wasonlyhy the most disgrace
ful tricLery and robbery that Sharkey waa
iw knocked out.
"Sharkey does not post-ess the require
ment:? of a first-class fighter, for to be
such a man he must have many more
quclitics than brnte strength. Be has
shown that thut Is almost tho only quality
h; does possess.
1his being the case It would be as
reasonable to call a hear a first-class
pugilist, because It could by strength ling
a ii.an to death, as to call Sharkey a first
class man. If we arc to lose sight of the
scientific elements ot pugilism, then we
had better discard the 'muny artr entirely.
In evcjy instance Sharkey has acted like a
rutffan In the ilng, and, according to te
pcrta. he has hot? in any of the contests In
which he has taken -part failed to violate
'That the referees have not disqualified
hlrr- is or.e of tho things to be "Wondered at,
and there may be an explanation for this.
It has never been claimed that Choynski
Is a riist-class heavyweight, for he is too
light for that under the present rules and
arconj: so manyblg men.
"Goddard's many defeats prove that he
was-not first class, and he at his bestsolcly
depended iu his strength. Men like Mace.
Sullivat,ntzsimn:ons and others depended
nr.t oul j on their strengch, but just asmuch
on their science, and In uotnu cases more.'
Ike Weir, the Belfast '-Spideri' has been
mMclu'd to box Mike Sear twenty rounds
at US pounds.
"White there aic a great many sporting
men in this country wlio are not afraid to
bet tl eir money on the outcome of a box
ing content. It must be admitted that the
Knglish eiiorting men bet more money on
on 1 fight in their country than tho Amerl
cai sporting men do on six fights on this
sidp of tlie water, says a sporting writer
No matter where the fight takes place. In
the Olympic Sporting Club.of Birmingham,
or the National Sporting Ciab.of London,
the English sports bet every dollar they

"When Dick Burge, the English lightweight,

He was tlien eight years old, and had a
record of 2:16 1-2, which at that time was
eclipsed only by the record of Smuggler,
2.15 1-4, among trotting stallions.
Such whs the reputation of Jerome Eddy
that In 18a2 the Buffalo Association, at
the Grand Circuit meeting, gave a special
purseof $1,500 to be contested for Oy Eddy
and the stallion J3lack Cloud. Eddy von

fast In a futile attempt to beat Smuggler's
chatr.plonshlp, record. .
The third and fourth beats were dead in
2:19 and 2:20,' respectively. BLick Cjoud
won the race. The talk, however, created
that day by a stallion trotting a mile in
2:16 1-2 was greater even than over Star
Pointer's mile this season In 1:31) l-l.
It loomed the horse into a sale to the
Jevetts foi $25,000. His sire was Louis

Alapes, by Alexander's Abdallnh.
lljnry C Jewett & Co. kept Jerome Eddy
im'il Aliiroh, 1896, and duringthese thirteen
yean? tliey have received from him In service
fees, $30,000. The Jewctts did not feell
EddV In their cioslng-out auction sale, but
a uioutli Utter sold him to S A. Owen, of
