LYNCH TELLS WHY

Sharkey's Manager Is on His Mettle
With His Money and Wants
to Bet $1000
A great many people wonder by what
process of reasoning Thomas Sharkey, the
sailor lad with comparatively little ex
perience, pretends to presume that he can
stand up before James J. Corbett. the
champion pugilist of the world, for four
Dan Lynch, the manager of Sharkey,
I ectedly furniehed an answer to this
tion yesterday afternoon. In addi
to uns he talked boldly and backed
hi- assertions with his money, that
Sharkey would be in the fight with the
idampion and in it at the finish.
At the Acme Athletic Club in Oakland
yesterday afternoon Mr. Lynch stood in a
group of spectators who were watching
Sharkey smite the bag, skip the rope, pull
the weights and do other things peculiar
to ihe pugilist when he is workine up

man slated that he did not think Pharkey
would stay two rounds before the cham
At that very moment the man who is
point: up against Corbett >vas giving an
exhibition of sparring with a mem
ber of ttie club in the handball court, and
hi- splendid phvriqtie was in cvi lence.
Dan Lynch overheard the remark. He
spoke up quickly, saying:
•1 have .fIOOO and I will put up any part
of it. two to one, that that boy stays two
rounds. Lor us see the color of your
money or stop talking."
The young man cl:d not seem to have
not iced" that Lynch was in ear-shot. He
replied that that was simply his opinion.
Lynch, being somewhat stirred up, con
tinned io the following strain:

continued to address the group as follows:
"Sharkey has never been put out by
anybody. He is as good a stayer as there
is in the ring to-day. He has improved
wonderfully in the last three years, and
he is improving right aiong. He has had
about thirty battles against all kinda of
men, and was never put to sleep yet. If
the go with Choynski had lasted two more
rounds Sharicey would have done him all
right, and they say that Choynski is as
hard a hitter as Corbett. Choynski re
fused to make another match with Shar- j
key on much the same terms. Choynski
knows what he can do.
"Greggains, who is claimed to be a very
scientific man," he continued, "would not
go up against Sharkey again to-day. Why?
Because Sharkey has improved so much |
since his meeting with Greggains that
Alex don't consider it a safe proposition.
"Now Corbett is all right," he went on,
becoming more interesting to the listeners.
"He is a good fellow and pays his bills and
all that, but there are a good many rea
sons why Sharkey has got a chance in this
light. Peter .Jackson never showed a mark
when Corbett went against him. The rea- |
son tnat Corbett beat Sullivan was that
John L. was exhausted and played out in j
sixteen rounds. He couldn't stand up to j
it any longer. Anybody could have put
him out then. Charley Mitchell was
beaten in three rounds by the disease that
was in his system. 1 saw all these tights,
and that's what I think. Corbett is not
the man he used to be. He has had too |
"Now Sharkey has never touched a drop I
of strong liquor in his life. He does not i
know what dissipation is. He is 24 years '
old, young and strong, with the heart of a i
lion.and all his fights show he can stand
punishment if he gets it. He is fit to-day
to step into the ring with Corbett. Any- j
body who wants my money that he does ■
not stay two or four rounds can have it,
and I'll put it up right now. Corbett has j
nothing to lose in this go, neither in I
money or reputation. He is not giving
any money away. The only chance that
he stands of losing anything even in repu- j
tation is in case Sharkey should put him I
i to sleep, and the boy has put tall men to
; sleep before."
His training to date has reduced the
I sailor lad in weight, and reduced his
avoirdupois to the spectacle of a trim,
quick fighter. Ten days have produced a
marked improvement in every way. He
j lay.- handball in better style, punches the
; bag with great rapidity and skips the rope
with the lightness of a school girl.
The champion put in the usual time at
the Olympic Athletic Club yerterday in j
training in bis usual fashion. He had a i
| good game of handball with experts in |
that court, and what is more important to j
Corbett in handball than exercise is the
fact that he won.
The sale of seats has reached the total j
' of $10,000 in round numbers to date, and |
tne contest does not take place until next
Wednesday, leaving four more days of

be more lively from now on to the hour I
business begins in the ring.
If there is not $20,000 in the house next j
| Wednesday evening, those sporting men j

i will be only one or two thousand dollars
off in their guess.
And of this considerable sum the
champion gets 50 per cent, whatever

FEW CRIMINAL CASES.
Fourth-Class Postmasters Mainly-
Responsible for Wrong-
INSPECTOR WHEELER'S OPINION
The Work of the Fiscal Year Ju;t
Ending Superior to All That Has
Robert R. Munro, Inspector in charge of
the San Francisco division of postoflice
inspectors, forwarded his report to the
department at Washington yesterday for j
the fiscai year ending June 20. Speaking j
of the work undertaken and completed ;
I during the twelve months just ended Mr.
I Munro said:
One of the most noticeable and gratifying
features of our work the past year has been '
the small number of criminal eases brought;
against persons directly connected with the
postal service. I don't know where you will '
rind a more conscientious and honorable Lot
of people, taken as a class, thau those em- I
ployed in the postal service. The positions :
are by no means sinecures, requiring, as 1 be
lieve," more constant application than most
positions under the (ioverumeiit. That this j
condition does not apply alone to the Pacilic
Coast is shown by a statement recently made
by Colonel M. D. Wheeler, the Chief Postoffice I
Inspector at Washington, in which he said:
"the public in general should feel proud of i
the United States postal service and its em- |
ployea. 1 say this because of the small num- j
berol postmasters aud employes in the differ- i
cut branches of the postal service arrested last
month for crimimil acts. I have a small tabu
lation here showing the work of the inspectors
for April, ana I leel much gratification in
noting that out of over 70,000 postmasters in
1 the entire United States only eight were proven
dishonest by their own acts, and but rive ,
assistant, postmasters and four clerks of the
many hundreds of thousands ot such employes
in the service were found with a diseased j
sense af honor.
'•The work accomplished by our inspectors I
d'lriiig the month ot April compares favorably ;
with that of March, wnich was one of thu big- |
gest months we have had since the iuaugura- ;
tion of the inspector service, the total of ar
rests being I(H>. However, while the number
of arrests in April does not equal those made i
during March by twenty persons, the falling
off does not signify a lack of vigilance on the ;
part of the inspectors, but on the other hand
speaks better for the employes of the postal :
service, as there were fewer postmasters and
other employes of all classes arrested during ;
April than in March. This record for Ai ril
shows that in addition to the ei^ht postmas
ters, live assistant postmasters ami lour dorks
ill postofliees, there were three letter carriers,
one railway mail postal clerk and four mail
carriers on star routes arrested by the in

vigilence in the war of extermination which j
was declared against p >stoflice burglars iv.'o !

i round. These statistics show that during
i March we captured forty-four, and in April we
placed forty postofh'ce burglars behind the
bars. This class of criminals is by far tbe
most dangerous of all kinds that our men have
I to deal with, and their vigorous efforts and
| success are very gratifying.
"The public also comes in for a share of at
! tention by postoffice inspectors, and it was
necessary for our men to arrest eighty-one
patrons for misusing the mails. This class of j
offenders includes those guilty oi forwarding
obscene matter, promoters of the 'green-goods'
swindle and other fraud schemes, lottery com
panies, agents, etc."
There are people who are of the opinion that
they can use the mnils in conducting schemes
to defraud, but as a class they are decreasing.
San Francisco a few years ago was a perfect
nest of sharpers— people who insisted on living
oy their wits. Unfortunately for them, how- i
ever, their schemes contemplated the use of j
the mails, and that is where they came to grief, i
Several of them have been lodged at the ex-
Dense of the Government at San Quentin and!
other similar institutions, and it has come to
be pretty generally known that fraudulent
schemes cannot be worked through the mails.
The division in charge of Inspector
Munro comprises the States of California, j
Nevada, Oregon, Washington and the
Alaskan Territory. Fsr the fiscal year j
ending .Tune 30, 1895, there were exactly j
3333 postoflices within the territory named. |
Forty-seven new offices have been added I
within the last twelve months, and of the |
3380 offices in existence June 20 only 169 j
come \yithin the President's power, the |
remaining 3111 being fourth-class offices ■
and appointed by the Fourth Assistant
In the four Htates and one Territory |
| comprising the Pacilic Coast Division
I there are only nine lirst-class offices. The
salary list and rating is as follows: San
Francisco, $11000; Los Angeles, $3500; Port
land, $3500; Oakland $3300; Seattle, $3300;
Sacramento, $3J50; Tacoma, $3200; San
Jose, $3100; Spokane, $3000. It will be I
seen from the above that California has
! five, Washington three and Oregon one of
' the first-class offices. The fourth-class of
fices are paid lees on the amount of stamps
To cover this vast territory there are j
only six field inspectors. They are mdi- 1
vidually and collectively expected to be j
ready at any and all times to jump from
Los Anpeles or San Francisco to SitKa or
other equally remote Alaskan town.
There are only" twenty postoffices in
Alaska, but they require "as much atten
tion and far more time as three times the
number in a more civilized district.
The greatest evil the postal authorities
have had to combat within the past twelve
months has been the festive stage and
postoffice robber. Up to January lof the
