IVSOTK THE NAME.
New York, June 8. The Bob Fitz-
simmons-Gus Ruhlin glove fight will be
Indefinitely postponed, owing to the in
Jury to Fitzsimmons' left hand, which
has been found to be severe.
. Dr, Sullivan says it will be at. least
a month and possibly much longer be
fore Fitzsimmons will te able to fight
again. Fitzsimmons was bitten by one
of his pet lions recently, but gave the
matter no attention, not believing the
wound amounted to anything. Then, in
his fight with Dunkhorst. he injured
the same hand in one of the terrific
blows which landed on the "human
freight car," and since then his hand
has been disabled.
Fitzsimmons has been working hard
for the battle with Gus Ruhlin, and
never was in better condition, aside
from the injured hand, than he is at
present. He will have to forfeit $1,000
to the Akron giant for not appearing
in the ring, such being the conditions
under which the fight was arranged.
Despite his injured hand, Fitzsimmons
is out with a challenge to fight Jeffries
at his own terms, 65 per cent of the
purse to Jeffries, win or lose. "Fitz"
says he will deposit $5,000 as a forfeit
with anybody selected by Jeffries or
Brady and will be ready to fight at any
time. He also says he is willing that
the winner take all, if such a proposal
is agTeeable to Jeffries and Brady.
Fitzsimmons says he never was more
earnest in his life and will get into con
dition for the battle at any time that
Jeffries may signify his willingness to
fight..
Fitzsimmons said today: "I am very
sorry about this mishap. 1 never felt
better in my life, otherwise, than I do
today. But the doctor was imperative
in his order that I should not fight
Ruhlin or anybody else on June 15, and
I reluctantly yield to his superior knowl
edge of how badly I am hurt. He told
me I must rest the hand for at least
a month, and I suppose I shall have to
do that, too."
Joe Choynski, the California heavy
weight, who was matched to light Joe
Wa'.cott for six rounds in Chicago on
July 10, has deliberately flunked out of
the fight. Tom O'Rourke received a
teiegram yesterday from Lou Hous-
nian stating that Choynski would not
meet Woolcott, although he had already
signed.
Frank Erne, the lightweight cham
pion, and Terry McGovern. will not
meet in the roped arena after all. Erne
last night said that he is not anxious
to fight McGovern, and that the an
r.o"..ncenient made to the effect that he
was willing to fight him at 12S pounds
was made in a jake. Erne almost ad
mitted that he could not make V
pounds and be strong. Erne also re
fuses to fight George McFadden, claim
lnir that the only fighter that is en
titled to battle with him is Jack
O'Brien. Billy Roach, manager of Mc
Fadden, has a forfeit of ?2,000 posted
to arrange a match. Lrne and Jack
O'Brien met at the Seaside Sporting
club last night, and agreed to fight be
fore the club offering the largest purse.
Erne told O Bnen he would like to have
the fight fought in Buffalo, as the clubs
up there will offer more money tor them
to battle for.
Dave Sullivan is hot on the trail of
the Buffalo boy. This morning he
made the following statement:
I see Erne wants to fight McGovern
at 12S pounds, said Dave. "Noiv it s
not likely that Harris will let Terry
fight at that weight. In fact, I see that
he wants to make the match at l-t
pounds.
"Erne, however, need not trouble
himself about them. If he wants to
fight at 128 I will take him on. Fur
thermore, I will bet him as much as he
wants that I will beat him.
'I will put up a forfeit with the sport
ing editor of the Journal as a guarantee
of pood faith and will sign articles at
any time.
Having just returned from a victo
rious tour in the West, Patsy Haley,
the crack 166-pound fighter of Buffalo,
is in town and looking for a fight,
Haley put up a couple of excellent
fisrhts in Boston and now wants to get
a match on in New York with the best
men he cart find at this weight. Haley
looks to be in first-class condition and
says that his looks do not come any
where near showing how good he is.
"Kid" McFadden or1 George Monroe
can have the first chance with Patsy.
He will meet either man and post a
forfeit at any time, the sooner the
better.
blooded Shetland, valued by his owner
at $400. has been allowed to roam about
the fields and marshes of Bergen Beaen
at will. About a week ago he turned up
missing. Fitz tramped over every road
in the neighborhood looking for the an
imal, swearing vengeance on tne man
that had' him. The police were notified
and a general order was sent out from
Mulberry street, but still no- pony.
Thursday morning of this week Fitz
received word that the pony was in a
barn in Brownsville. Matt Dooley, Fitz's
trainer, was sent out to see it the report
was true, and found that Adam was in a
barn belonging to Newbold Bros., pro
duce merchants, at 483 East New York
avenue. Dooley claimed the property,
and agreed to pay all expenses, but de
murred at paying- for the services of a
lawyer which the Newbolds had retain
ed. Fitz was boiling mad when he
heard about the lawyer's fees, and he
started at a rapid gait for Brownsville.
Dooley accompanied him, and the New
bolds were given to understand that
they would have to pay their lawyer out
of their own pocket. The Newbolds
started at once for their attorney's of
fice for advice, and while they were
gone Fitz became more impatient. His
patience gave out and he walked over
to the barn wherein his pony was sta
bled, ripped off a few boards, made an
opening, led his pony out and started
for the beach.
He now has the pony, but has not yet
paid the Brownsville lawyer.
AFTER CHAMPION ERNE.
Dave Sullivan Wants to Fight Buffalo
Man at 128 Pounds.
New York, June 8. Dave Sullivan
wants a crack at Light Weight Cham
pion Frank Erne. "I see Erne wants to
fight McGovern at 12S pounds," Dave
said today. "Now, it is not likely Har-
is will let Terry fight at that weight. In
fact, I see he wants to make the match
at iy pounds. Erne, however, need not
trouble himself about them.
If he wants to fight at 128 I will take
him. Furthermore, I will bet him as
much as he wants that I beat him. I
will put up a forfeit as a guarantee of
good faith and will sign articles at any
time.
Jack O'Brien, who meets Tim Kearns
at Coney Island June 16, was matched
to meet Frank Erne for the light weight

He Balks McFarland and Then Drives
in the Winning Run.
From the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Whether Dick Cooley believes in the
un-Christian-like sentiment that "Re
venge is sweet," is not generally knowc,
but presumably there is enough of the
bid Adam in him to enable him to enjoy
the chance which came his way yester
day afternoon, to throw the harpoon in
to his one-time side partners. It came
In the tenth inning. The score was a tie.
"Two of the Pittsburgers had been re
tired, and Wagner was on first. The
latter started for second, where he
should have been retired. Just as Mc
Farland started to throw the ball, Coo
ley deliberately and with malice afore
thought held his bat straight out, and
balked Mcrarlana, Wagner reaching
the base in safety. Of course, Delahan-
ty raised a merry pow-wow with Hurst,
but the latter did not see it; and if he
had, the chances are that he would not
have given Cooley out, for there is al
ways room for a legitimate doubt as to
whether the balk was intentional or not.
Cooley then caught one straight on the
pickle and sent it sailing in safety
against the right field wall, and before
Flick could relay it to the infield Wag
ner had scored and Cooley himself was
on second. This won the game, for in
the Philies' half of the tenth the side
went out in order.

Sailor and Fitz Chumming.
New York, June 8. It is unlikely that
anyone who saw either Bob Fitzsim
mons or Tom Sharkey within a year or
so succeeding their battle in San Fran
cisco in '96 would ever have expected to
see them sit at the same table and take
a friendly glass of ginger pop as thev
did at Bergen Beach yesterday. But the
two big men of the ring did this and no
one is the worse off for it. Fitz was on
his way to a fish dinner at Canarsie, be
ing accompanied by Mrs. Fitzsimmons
and several friends, and they met Shar
key, who is just back from a trip to
Boston. The sailor was looking the
beach over and after a few minutes'
chat at the Casino they parted without
coming to blows.

to the weight of the beds when tney
were returned. When the men were
ready to leave the town it was found
they had 400 pounds of good feathers at
the depot to ship away. As they had
