I START AFTEn THAT CHAMPIONSHIP BY
SEATING! SOME EASY ONES.
S Boon as tho big flgbt at Carson
was all over Corbett was rush

special train. They had Intend

reception, but thai was nil off, of

arena and went for a long walk
through the buck streets of Carson.
We wore half stunned by the unex
pectedness of If all.
" Charlie White and I walked down
the streets and around comers for a
long time without saying a werd. I
was thinking the fight over round by
round. After awhile I stopped and
"Charlie, are those two really great
"My boy," said White, "today " you
have seen the two greatest men that
ever met In a ring."
I stopped to think that over, but I
didn't feel convinced.
"Do you think they're so great?" 1
"I've followed the game since I was
a boy." said White, "and these two are
the best men I've. ever seen."
"Then I'm going to be champion of
the world." I said. "I can beat either
of them, and I know It."
I might not want to write this down
here if it wasn't so easy to prove that
It wasn't coheeit that made me say It
I made good. I beat them both.
I was going back to San Francisco
light heartedly enough, for I had a
light on hand myself. The match with
Van Busklrk had been signed up
again. Billy Delnney had plenty of
time to attend to my affairs, so he be
came my manager, The Van Busklrk
fight was dated for April 0, three
weeks after Corbett and Fltzslmmons.
I remember the Van Busklrk fight
for one thing that still strikes me as a
good Joke. When I went over to tho
pavilion that night with Billy Delaney
the only thing thnt worried me was
tho idea that the tight might go twen
ty rounds and 1 might miss the last
boat back to Oakland aud lose n good
night's sleep. I made up my mind to
finish Van as quickly as I could and
try to get the 11:45 Narrow Gauge
home, which would land me only n
couple of blocks from the house before
But In the dressing room I noticed
thnt Delaney was fidgety. lie had a
face a yard long.
"I'll bet you an oyster loaf. Billy,"
I said, "that I get this fellow Inside
of six rounds "
Well, to get down to business, we
were callPd out at last, and 1 met Van
Busklrk face to face in the ring. I
shoved hltn about a Utile as we came
together and then began punching him
around the ring. It can't have been
much of a fight, for the only thing I
remember Is that In the second round
1 thought 1 might as well finish him
and start for that boat, so I walked
into Mr. Van Busklrk and slipped my
favorite left hand body punch Into his
middle nnd knocked him out. Billy
Delnney bought the oyster loaf
As Van Busklrk had been amateur
champion of the 1'aclflc coast and had
beaten a number of heavyweights In
professional fights, he was regarded as
tbo coast champion, and that title now
come to me. I was left In undisturbed
possession of the field but for a heavy
weight from the enst. He was Henry
Baker, nnd we were matched to fight
on May 19. a month nnd ten days after
my scrap with Van Busklrk
This Baker was a real fightor. He
bailed from the stockyards In Chicago,
where he was known as "Slaughter

The Baker fight was hold In Wood
ward's pavilion in San Francisco. . It
was a curious thlug that two coming
world's champions fought that night
Joe Gaus and myself. Gans was
matched 'to fight Miko Lconnrd twen
ty rounds. Gans and Leonard went
on first. Gnus won tho decision.
But to go buck to Baker. I must
say that the stockyards champion gave
me good, hard work to do. In the
ninth round I got htm. I hooked my
left into his body nnd lifted him up
In tho air u couplo of feet. Then I
knocked him out with a left hand
punch on the jaw. Baker was as
gaino a man ns I had ever met.
Gus Ruhlln's manager, Billy Mad
den, was at the ringside on tbo night
I boxed Baker. Ho bad Just arrived
on tho coast with Ruhlln nnd Stevo
O'Donnell. Bcforo the contest Mad
den Jumped into tho ring and chal
lenged tho winner for Ruhlln. He
wanted to make the challenge sound
good, and on the spur $f the moment
he called Gus "the Akron giant" Tho
name made a hit with the crowd, and
It stuck to Ruhlln from that time on.
Douglas White of San Francisco,
who was interested in boxing then,
went to Madden and asked him if he
thought Ruhlln could stay three
rounds with me.
"Stay three rounds!" exclaimed Mad
den. "Yes, and he'll lick Jeffries too."
"Oh. don't give me that stalll" said
"You can make the winner's and los
er's end whatever you like,'' said Mad
den. Thnt convinced White. Ho had al
ready asked Delaney, nnd now ho sign
ed Ruhlln up, and the match was on
for July 10 at tho Mechanics' pavilion,
then the most famous arena In the
According to tho articles. Ruhlln was

Ruhlln trained with Steve O'Donnell

Bruno rond. on the Frisco side of tho
bay. I went to Billy Delaney's In Oak

Right at the start Ruhlln surprised
me a little by rushlug In with a couple
of swings. I made him miss and Jab
bed him with my left. In the second
round I punched him hnrd and had no
trouble nt all in landing. Delaney
thought I had Gus going. As I started
up for the third Billy said. "Now go
finish him. Jim."
I stnrted out to make short work of
tho Akron giant, but here I got a now
sensation. As Ruhlln and I came to
gether I looked past him nnd saw Billy
Madden leaning across the edge of tho
ring nnd looking In under the ropes. I
was Just nbout to roach out with my
left when Madden suddenly yelled,
"Akron!" Ring! Ruhlln was In on top
of me like a ton of rock. Before I
knew what was coming he was batter
ing away with both hands and ham
mering me off my balance and against
the ropes. He hit me some great
punches, I'll say that for Gus.
As soon ns the fourth began I rushed
to close quarters myself nnd swung
both hnnds on Ruhlln's chin. GuS was
rattled for a moment, and over in
his corner Billy Madden was yelling
"Cleveland!" so loudly that I could
hear it above all the noise from the
crowd. Gus bucked away and as 1
followed him Jabbed ino hard on tho
nose. I pushed In against tho Jab and

nearly got the Akron giant again. I
lauded two or three hard rights over
his heart nnd swung the same hand
on his Jnw. sending him staggering,
tint lio wns landing on me with both
hands, too. From thnt time until the
olghteonth he outboxed me without
getting Into any dnugerous tulxups.
When I came out for that round I hit
up the pace and kept planting my
right over Ruhlln's heart until he
weakoned and lost his speed. Iu the
