As Interview Appears In Print.
'Repeated Interrogations have been j
I addressed to me regarding my coming
contest in the pugilistic world, and ij
wleb to state that my friends and
I well-wishers need ha e no fear as to j
I the ultimate result. The laurels of vlc-
J tory will uudoubtcdly adorn my brow, !
I and it will ever be my aim to elevate
I and keep unamirched the ethics ot the
j profession to which 1 belong. There
' are certain Individual! now posing as
? glove artists who liave done much by ;
2s virtue of their uncouth actions to low - '
jS( er the standard of gentlemanly ring
H conduct, and among them, 1
a regret to say, must be nuin-
S; bered my prospective opponent
m I have ever refrained from expos- !
Ing the shortcomings of my aniagon- i
ist's private character, but In this in
stance I feel it m dnt to the press!
I and public to Issue a frank statement
regarding my adversarj It le lm- I
possible to place him in the category I
I of a gentleman I am unable to as
sert v. hether this deplorable fact Is!
ffl ,Jue ,0 purely natural causes, or
whether he has deliberat el j foisuken
, the heights of culture to wallow un
restrained in the slough of Infamy.
Be that as it may. I am compelled to
reiterate the painful and dlsgustins
truth ho i? tar. far from being
gentleman With reference to the
tactics whi h I Intend to pursue in
the scheduled contest. 1 ran onl say
! that my conduct will be dlstlnjrulsh-
ed, as it ever has been, by strict ad-
' hwrence to clean, untarnished meth-

I porent resort to the despicable tricks'
J common to those who are skilled In '
the art of seul-ducgr and foul prac- i
tlr-es, I will endeavor to rebuke him I
sharply as ho deserves. No soldier 1
j of the modern arena be he private
or general, novice or champion, should
deign to stoop to anv low action cal-
j culated to provoke adverse criticism.

GOOD BOOST

I An excellent boost for the sport of
( boxing has been written by F B
Osborn In tbe aristocratic London
Post and reproduced in Current Opin

graphs: "But the age of the coal heaver has

discomforts, of course, in the prac

A pile-driver on the solar plexus
just where the ribs open out, is not a
pleasant experience. As for the
Knockout blow to the point of the

soul of the sentimentalist, it is not
a thing to won-v about at all. Ex

puted from the distlsf India rubber

aKei of the Chicago N'ationuls, de

cease talking, but now intends to
Fight back He declared that Chance,
newly named manager of tbe New
York Americans, ha.i been "knocking
him and be Invites his former boss to
tell what he knows about him. Ho

I been violating all baseball laws and
I sportsmanship by tampering with hi?
players on the Cubs' roll

lieed Tinker would make a much bet
ter manager than I would,'' Evera

Tinker has been talking to some of
my players and breaking the rules of I
baseball by dickering for men that he
has no ritht to talk to.
"I have not claimed that T am a
great manager, but I am coinc to try
my level best to show that I am able
to deliver the goods. Tinker wired
to Larry Chenej to meet him in Kan
sas City recently and evidently he
tried to get him to sign with the Reds.
He never asked me if he could talk
to him He also has been talking
to Tom Noedham and Heeklnger in
a wav that was not complimentary.
"As for Chance, li he has anything1
to tell on me, let him come out with
ril I hae always been above board j
In my conduct and am not afraid of!
anything he has to say against me. I
I worked faithfulh for him for ten'

what he was and he always talked toj
me as if he appreciated It. A year

not continue as a player, be talked!
with me for two hours and said that!
he would be glad to see me as his
successor. Tinker bas been sore ev-j

RIVERS IS

I Mexican and Brown Are
I Both Confident of
. Success Tomorrow
Training ended at the camps of Joe
Riven and Knockout Brown yester

this Is alout rltrht Brown put up a
very satisfactory finish to his training

but that the New Yorkei Is in Shape
to fight tho battle of his life

as confident of pullinc down the long
end of the purse tomorrow afternoon
as Rrown. The Mexican is trained to
tho minute, and ha? no thought of
losing. 'Brown's open style of milling
Will enable me to hit him almost at
will," said toe. "Whoever I can hit
I c'n lick The bout may go the lim
it, but I don t expect it to."
Betting is rather slow, with Rivers
fsvorlte at odds or 10 to 7. But little1

BASEBALL HAS
FUNNY FREAKS
Baseball has some funny freaks, but
none ever beat the one which a writ
er recalls happened in a game buck
In Indiana on .Ma .10, 1890, wli4n the
Anderson club got three triples, a
double and two singles in one inning
and yet they didn't score.
Ireland, the first hitter, hit for a
triplo anil tried to score on a short
passed ball, hut was tagged out. WIs
e the next hatter, hit for what
loof.ed like a home run, but was
cnught at the plato by a good return
Shumway, the next batter, tripled.
The next batter. Derbv. bunted, and
while the third baseman was waiting
for tho ball to go foul tho batter
reached second, thus giving him two
bases. Kaatz also buntef and was
safe, as Shumway. on thir.i was held
from scoring. This made five hits,
Bnd the Blxth came when Fear hit a
liner to right, the ball hitting Faatz
on the way to second, thus retiring
the side
