The local admirers of the woild famous
exponent of the manly art are out in their
best bib and tucker today in honor of his
arrival in the city, and in great numbers
and with much eclat received him on his ar
rival with his dramatic company at the
Milwaukee depot at 11:25 and followed
him to the Harper house where the cham
pion and his wife are registered.
When seen by an Argus reporter this
afternoon in his room at the Harper
house the big champion had just finished
a hearty dinner and was consequently in
a pretty good humor. Although not in
clined to say much, the heavy man from
Boston cave the reporter to understand
that he expected to be in it from start to
finish in his coming fight with Corbett.
"When will your dramatic 6cason end,
Mr. Sullivan?" inquired the reporter.

plied the champion, "and in many re
spects has no equal, but like all other
pugilists he has his weak points."
"Do you expect to retire from the ring
for good after your coming fight with
Corbett?' asked the reporter.
"Well that depends," was the reply.
"While I wish to give every man, who
can lay just claim to beiog a legitimate
pugilist, a chance to contest with me for
the belt I hold if he desires to do eo, !
nevertheless, I do not care to go into tLe
ring with every mm who thinks himself
able to cope with mc for the champion

would be more to accsmmodate would-be
"Well, you may call it that if you like.
I am well satisfied with the stage, and see
no reason why I should change, as it is
certainly more agreeable."
The big Boslonian was just lying
down to take his afternoon nap and the
scriba left him to his slumbers.
