YOU ARE INVITED
A few days before the Memsic fight,
Joe Gans announced his retirement
from- the ring. The old master has
never done any of the Patti farewell
before and may be trying to begin it.
but here are tils own reasons for quit
ting the game:
"I have been fighting for seventeen
years and that ought to be long enough
to suit anybody. If I had been out
for myself and could have got my
Hands on the big money I have earned
for other people I might have been
able to retire before. Everybody
knows that I was down and out before
the Goldfleld fight. I took a raw deal
on the split of that $.30,000 purse, but
he'ieve me, that $1.0.000 short end, win
or lose, looked as big as a mountain
to me. Then, I bet my entire end of
the purse on myself. If I had lost to
Nelson that day I guess I would have
had to walk out of Goldfleld. As It
was I came out with quite a nice little
stake. Then the theatrical engage
ments helped me along and I began
to lay some of the money aside.
"I bought a corner lot in Baltimore
and had a three-story brick building
put up on it a hotel. I named It the
Goldfleld hotel, because if it had not
been for Goldfleld there would not
have been any hotel.
"I had enough money to pay for the
ground and put up a good building,
but I could not see enough In sight to
finish the place properly. That Is
why I came west this last time. You
remember the papers did some guess
ing about my western trin. TTipv mm
Gans was going to force Nelson Into
a fight. Well, they came close to the
truth. I did come west to arrant
another match with Nelson and we
could have got $40,000 for the finish
"Then along came Mr. Britt and
knocked Nelson off t-e perch. I could
see my furniture going, but the match
with Britt brought me about $20,000,
counting the money I won on myself,
and I . got $9,000 for fighting Memsic.
T had figured on getting together $20,
000 cash and quitting the ring for
good. I have managed to get $30,000
and now I'm going Into the hotel busi
ness. This fighting game is a tire
some proposition when you follow It
for years like I have. I'm ready to
quit, and I hope to make the little
hotel of mine a favorite .resort in Bal
timore. Of course, it will be a col
ored man's hotel and all that, but I
have some good friends who are white
men and I expect to have such a nice
place that they will not be ashamed
to drop in and shake hands with me
when they are in town."
"Mushmouth'.' Johnson, Burled at
Chicago, and His Strange Career.
