New Yortc, June 7. Sam Harris, man
ager of Terry McGovern, referring to
day to Frank Ernea challenge to meet
McGovern, Bald: '
"Erne makes a. wrong statement when
he says Terry made remarks that he
could lick him. It was Erne who
stated that he could defeat Terry In
side of 10 rounds, and I accepted the
challenge, but Erne did not seem too
anxious to keep up his end of it.
"Now that Erne has declared him
self anxious for a chance at McGovern
he can have it as soon as he desires to,
if he will make the weight 128 pounds at
ringside instead of 128 pounds. Should
he consent to this I will meet him any
where he wants me to and bring my
fountain pen with me and likewise my
bank roll, and will wager him any part
of $5,000 on the result. If the match is
made I will agree to divide the money,
7a pel cent, to the winner and 25 per
cent, to the loser, or I will agree that
the winner take all."
Al Herford, manager of Joe Gans, the
colored lightweight, claims that Frank
Erne need not seek a tight with 51c-
Govern, as he will match Gans against
him immediately . Herford says that
Krne agreed to give Gans another
chance if he won, but for some un
known reason he declines to do so.
He Wants to Fight Jeffries One Year
From Now.
New York, June 7. Jim Corbett re
turned to the city yesterday after a
week's tour with his sparring partner,
Jim McVey. The ex-champion is look
ing well, and says that atter a lew
months' rest he will again go into train
ing for another championship battle
with Jeffries. Corbett believes he will
be in still better shape when he enters
the rtne next time than he was at
Coney Island last month, and is confi
dent that he can defeat the California!!
In the next attempt.
Speaking of his plans, Corbett said:
"I see Jeffries says he is through
with me because I would not fight him
in two weeks. Well, that challenge was
a bluff, but he can get himself In shape
for a return match with me next spring.
I am going to take things easy for the
present, and next winter will go into
active training, so I will be in good
shape for a hard match in the early
spring. Jeffries says he will not fight
me. Well, if lie doesn't x win ciaim me
championship and then arrange a
match with the next best man."
a Brother to tne prince
Wales' Derby Winner.
Now York, June 6. Johnny Madden
made one of the best deals of his ca
reer today. By cable he purchased
from the Prince of Wales the four-year-old
colt Sandringham, by St. Simon
Perdita II, a full brother to Diamond
Jubilee, the Derby winner of the pres
ent year; to Persimmon, the Derby
winner of 1S06. and to Florizel II, a
grand race horse.
The breeding and relationship of this
colt is richness itself, and Mr. Madden
has secured a valuable addition to his
stud at Hamburg Place, Ky.
Sandrlngham was the highest priced
yearling the Prince of Wales ever
owned. So well was he thought of that
he was given the name of the Prince's
country seat. He went wrong early
in his career, and all efforts to train
him were fruitless. It was firmly be
lieved that Sandringham, had he
trained on, would have made the third
of the St. Simon-Perdita II get to win
the Derby.
The purchase was a surprise. Mad
den has always been regarded as a
seller rather than a buyer of horses.
He bred Hamburg, probably the great
est tace horse this country ever saw,
and sold him to Marcus Daly as a
three-year-old for $41,000. He sold Ad
miration to W. C. Whitney last year
for $10,000 and Kilmarnock this season
to the same gentleman for $21,700. He
also sold to Mr. Whitney Plaudit for
the fancy price of $25,000.
Last season he disposed of David
Garrick and The Chamberlain to Pierre
Lorrillard and McMeekin to Mr. Ear
rick for 6.000. He also sold to Mr.
Whitney the two-year-old De Lack
for a sum said to be $10,000. Every
thing in the horse line that Madden
touches seems to turn to gold. He
bought Tillo. the Suburban winner,
from N. Bennington, who had pur
chased him at the Rodgers & Rose
sale. A few days later Madden turned
around and sold Tillo for a large in
crease, Mr. Whitney being the buyer.
Says He Will Never Fight Fitz Again
if He Can Avoid It.
New York, June 7. "Just a year ago
Tuesday Robert Fitzsimmons lost the
championship of the world. He had
himself to blame, for he trained for a
championship tight as if training for
some 'mark' whom he was to stop in
four rounds.
"He thought Jeffries very close to
Donkhorst's class when he got Into the
ring. The surprise beat him. It wasn't
dope, it was Jeffries. There was a time
in the fight when Jeff, Ryan and every
body thought Fitz would win. No one
hears of it now, but while in London
Jeffries used to tell of how close he
came to getting his, and of how many
men he would fight In one ring sooner
than meet Fitzsimmons." said a well
known sporting man yesterday.
"It all occurred in the seventh round,
so Jeff used to say. He had a sore collar-bone
for two months to remind him
of it. Fitz came to him swinging, and
he broke ground toward the north end
of the ring. Fitz carried him into the
ropes and, just as they came together,
let go a short left hook that landed fair.
It was a trifle low to get the purse, but
it caught Jeff on the collar-bone and
glanced to his jaw. Few knew that he
had been hit, but to this day Jeff cannot
tell how he got through the rest of that
"The next round found Jeff with his
right aim dead from the shoulder to the
elbow, and it looked for a few minutes
as if he would hardly recover the use of
It. But it came around and Fitz never
, knew. The next day, however, and for
three months Jeffries had a sore collar
bone to recall that seventh round.
"In telling the tale Jeff used to finish
by saying: 'If it had been three Inches
higher . Well, it wasn't. But I'll
never fight that red-headed fellow again
while there is any other fighter on
earth. I beat him, and once is enough
for me! I don't care to beat him
again.' "
Sailor's Manager Says Fight Articles
Will Be Signed.
New York, June 7. The articles of
agreement for the battle between Jef
fries and Sharkey, which were unsatis
factory to Sharkey because of the
clause inserted in them which calls for
the men to hit in clinches, will be sign
ed in a few days. Tom O'Rourke, man
ager of Sharkey, said today that he was
sure Sharkey would give In, and that
the articles would be signed shortly.
Sharkey and Yank Kenney, at one
time Bob Fitzsimmon's sparring part
ner, have been matched to appear in a
twenty-five round go at the Broadway
club next Friday evening. Kenney is
agile and clever, and able to right fast
and hard. During his engagement as
sparring partner with Bob Fitzsimmons
he learned all the latter's trick blows
and ring tactics, and can utilize them
to advantage.
Former Friends Give Him a Diamond
and Flowers at Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Record says of Dick
Cooley's first appearance in that city
with the Pittsburg team:
Dick Cooley was the star attraction
of the game. It was on the programme
that the Phillies' ex-captain was to re
ceive a present every time he came to
bat, but the rain very rudely interfered
after two presentations, and the other
gifts were held over until Monday. The
first time Cooley came to bat a beauti
ful floral piece was carried out on the
field by four small boys. It represented
a diamond laid out on smilax, the base
lines being white carnations and the
bases pink blossoms. Over the home
plate rested a horseshoe, four feet high,
with two crossed bats in the center and
a floral baseball dangling from the top.
The presentation was made by the com
mittee of the "Hot-Air club, of which
Cooley was a stanch member. The sec
ond time up Cooley was presented with
a diamond stud from the members of
the Philadelphia team and several other
Cooley responded with a fine two
bagger after being presented with flow
The Black Demon Will Soon Be in
the Ring Again.
New York, June 7. Joe Walcott, who
was taken ill last week at New Dorp,
is rapidly recovering, and will be able
to resume training in a few days for
his fight with Joe Choynskl in Chi
cago, and Billy Stift, which ' will be
fought In Denver two weeks later.
The limited round bout between
Matty Matthews and Joe Gans, which
was practically arranged on the night
that Gans beat Hawkins, has fallen
through. Johnny Dunn, manager of
Matthews, after consenting to allow his
man to fight Gans at 135 pounds, now
refuses to do so, and, of course, the
contest had to be declared off.
To Have Been Fought J une 25, De
clared Off by the Kid.
New York, June 7. As was fore
shadowed, the bout between Tom Shar
key and Kid McCoy, which was sched
uled to take place at Coney Island June
25, has been declared off.
McCoy has been doing a lot of work
recently, and thinks he would injure
his health if he underwent a hard
course of training.
Catcher Wilson Wants More Salary
From Manning.
Kansas City, June 7. Catcher Parke
Wilson, who was recently signed, jump
ed the team yesterday, having had a
disagreement with Manager Manning
over the salary question.
Parke has been drawing $300 a month
from the local management and al
though his playing has not been the
best he yesterday stated that unless he
was paid for the latter part of Septem
ber and the 1st of October he would
no longer play. As the season ends
September 18, Manning refused the re
Fitzsimmons' Hand Injured Cannot
Have Bout With Ruhlin June 15.
New York, June 7. Robert Fitzsim
mons, the pugilist, was examined at
Bellevue hospital today by Dr. John H.
Sullivan, who announced that Fitzsim
mons is suffering from an abcess on his
left knuckle. This hand was Injured in
Fitzsimmons' recent bout with Dunk
horst and has since pained him greatly.
Dr.' Sullivan gave him a certificate of
injury and said positively that he could
not box with Ruhlin on June 15.
Wrestle to a Tie.
San Francisco, June 7. Max Wiley,
the champion light and welter weight
amateur wrestler of the United States,
living in New York, and F. H. Bayley
of the San Francisco Olympic club.met
on the mat last night. After wrestling
for an hour neither had gained a fall
-and the contest was declared a draw,
the time limit having expired. At the
recent amateur championship tourna
ment, in this city. Wiley lost the de
cision to Bayley. He came bact to the
coast for another match.
Ryan Refuses to Fight Root.
Chicago, June 7. Tommy Ryan, who
is at present in this city, states that
there will be no fight at Coney Island
between Jack Root and himself, as has
been scheduled. Ryan says he never
signed articles for a bout of this kind
and, of course, did not deposit a forfeit.
Ryan further said he is tired of meeting
men heavier than himself and will not
met Root unless he agrees to weigh 158
pounds at the ringside.
Loman Goes to Des Moines.
Atchison, June 7. Roy Loman has
signed with Des Moines, of the Western
league, and leaves for that place tomor
row. Thiel and Nagel are with the same
Baseball Gossip.
Several of the great batsmen of last
season are still behind their clip, notice
ably Keeler, Burkett and Freeman.
Keister, the former Oriole, who is now
covering second for St. Louis, Is playing
excellently. His work in the Brooklyn
games was of the high-class order.
"Cupid" Childs is making quite a rec
ord at second for Chicago. He is plaving
as good as he did four years ago in Cleve
land. Bradley at third is also doing well.
McGulre s ankle is slowly mending. He
is able" to hobble around on it and thinks
he will get in the game in less than a
week. In the mea.ntime "Charley" Far
rell will have to do the catching.
The game that Dick Coolev is putting
up now must make Philadelphia tired.
Not only is the new pirate playing first
base perfectly, but his batting is of a
high order.
There must be some hoodoo about the
Emporia Normal team that hasn't ap
peared on the surface. The playing of
Washburn with K. U. and Haskell was
of a much higher order than the Normal
team put up in Topeka-'
Boston is doing prettv well for a crip
pled team without pitchers.
The game between Washburn and the
Santa Fe shops next Saturday will be
funnier than a comic almanac.
"Pittsburg has three dangerous hitters
in Beaumont, Williams and Wagner. Any
one of the trio is liable to crack out a
three-bagger, particularly when the bases
are occupied." Philadelphia paper. Wag
ner did it here and drove In two runs In
that last Sunday game between the Reds
and Pirates. Enquirer.
The prediction that Elmer Smith -would
go to New York, and Phil Geier to Com
iskey's Chicago American League team,
has been fulfilled. Smith will play right
field for the Giants, and Winnie Mercer
will no doubt return to the pitcher'B box.
Says the St. Louis Republic: "Again,
Young, who is a man devoid of sentiment,
has his choice of catchers, or, rather. It
takes him some time to get acquainted
with his receiver. For years he pitched to
Zimmer. When Chief broke down O'Con
nor had to catch Cy. It took Young some
time to win with O'Connor behind him.
Ouppy never cared who caught him. eke
Wilson could always do best with O'Con
nor catching him. Young is now having
the same trouble breaking In with Robin
son that ho had with O'Connor. He would
have the came trouble with Criger. Last
fall Buelow caught him in what Cy after
ward said was the 'best catching I ever
had done for me.' It is funny that Young
who is steady as a clock, should worry
aboilt his receiver. But he does."
Some changes are probable in several
of the teams, notably Cincinnati. New
York and Boston, The Cincinnatis have
not been putting up anything like as good
a game as they did early in the season.
In batting, fielding and pitching Allen's
players are awav below the average, and
it is the intention to give several minor
leaguers a change to see what they can
do. In New York and Boston conditions
aro very much similar, with the exception
that the latter have not yet .secured the
men they will use.
Says the New Y'ork World: From Pitts
burg comes the report that Tommy
Leach and Tom O'Brien are to be loaned
to the New York Club by Barney Drey
fuss, of the Pittsburg club. Outside of
the fact that the loaning of players bv
one league city to another looks very
much like a species of hippodromlng to
increase attendance, and thereby get more
of the public's money, the New Y'ork club
will hardly consent to any such arrangement.

Cereal Expert Writes of His
Plans For Halstead.
Will Go Far Into Siberia and
North Caucasus.
Expects to Obtain a Famous
Grade CaIled"BuiYola."
To Experiment With 1000 Tar-
ieties of Cereal This Fall.
Halstead, June 7. The wheat experi
menting station maintained by the gov
ernment is being watched by agricul
turists throughout the United States
with Interest.
M. A. Carlton, expert in the cereal de
partment is now on a trip through Eur
ope and Asia seeking for new varieties
of wheat. The following letter has been
received from him under a Pans Oate
'I am much interested in your letter
of May 5. I have planned all the time
to visit the Crimea and other portions
of Taurida while in Russia. I shall se
cure 50 to 75 bushels of the best Cri
mean red winter wheat for the United
States department of agriculture and
shall be glad to select for you four or
five hundred bushels. If anything like
the same prices prevail as when I was
in Russia before, I am almost certain
that the price per bushel would not be
over si.7o and most likely not that
much. I think too that I can arrange to
have all the grain entered at New York
free of duty, but at present cannot
guarantee this. I must leave It to you
to arrange with your people for the
payment of the grain, as I must use the
greater part of the funds I Jiave at
hand for purchases in other parts of
Russia and Siberia, and would therefore
not be able to advance payment for this
grain. I am acquainted with the agents
of the Wilson Line of steamers at Odes
sa and can have the grain forwarded di
rect to New York from Odessa without
going to Hamburg by rail, which would
be more expensive. I will do all I can
for you towards getting the best wheat
possible and as promptly and cheaply
as possible.
"I shall go as far as the Obi river in
Siberia probably, and will visit various
places in the North Caucasus and Turk
estan. In the former region I expect to
obtain a winter wheat 'Buivola.' even
better than Turkey possibly. At Kerch
x will also get about 60 bushels of
Armautka for trial as a macaroni
"I am glad to hear good news about
the wheat at Halstead. I shall like to
have five acres of your land when I re
turn. This coming autumn and spring
I expect to experiment with over 1,000
varieties of cereals at Halstead, from
all the world. There are many new ones
at the exposition. You will soon receive
a copy of my bulletin probably on the
subject of Russian Cereals."
