Back Lively at Corbett SAYS HE IS "SO GOOD." 3akes This Kind of a Propo sition to the Ex-Chs,mpion. Corbett Must First Declare His Condition Perfect. Then Jeffries Will Fight Him Any Old Time. New York. June 21. Jim Jeffries is evi dently not g-oing to allow Corbett to make a reputation for himself on the strength of the showing he made in the recent championship battle. Jeffries, in a le.ter sent en route to Louisville has this to say : What has Corbett ever done for the pugilistic world? Tell me. I say, nothing, only disgraced it. He whipped Sullivan and Mitchell, and was licked in his last three battles by Sharkev, Fitz and mv self. I miijht say his last four, for Shar key in San Francisco beat him unmerci fully, and. as usual with this "wind-jabbering-, talkative old maid." he 'was -out of condition, or he forpot himself, or it was an accident, or a lucky or chance punch that de feated him. Now, before.' our .' re cent match he put himself on record as savins "h was in perfect physical trim, and If defeated he would hare no excuses to offer." In fact, he plainly stated that he couldn't possibly be in any better con dition. I believe he bills himself "The Pugilistic Marvel of the Century." Well, that's what he certainly is. He was defeated twice by Sharkey, once by Fitz and my self, lie is now in the Yank Kennedy Dunkhorst class. As his pet expression was, "Go tret a reputation, -will you tell me where his is? He might get a boost if he even defeated McCoy, a game I don't think he d;u-e tackle. I must say in due deference, he can do fast foot work. I often think he must have taken ballet lessons from the Kiralfy Brothers. Now. here is what I propose to do with Corbett. I will fight him when it pleases him on condition that he signs a state ment admitting to the world that he is perfect, perfect in every respect. Let him start training at once: let him overlook nothing. He knows there is no such thing as a chance fr lucky blow in a fight. When a man swings he does it to land. If he fails he luses. I am a fighter, pure and pimple, and when I meet mv con queror you will find I will not cfv liUe an old woman, a la Corbett. but accept defeat with all the grace a fighter should. Xow that I have put myself on record, will overlook this argument in prime, but of his quiet for a while and go in train ing. I don't want to hear from him until he. is ready to battle. Let him cut out those stage speeches and stop riding on the fact of his having a match, coming from me. The next match must be a finish one, however, is all I say. I trust the public will overlok this argument in prime, but as the attack in the Enquirer of June 10, called for a defense. I submit this. JAMES JEFFRIES, Champion of the World and Willing to Defend It. SHARKEY AND HTJHLIN TRAIN. Both Work Hard For Battle Next Monday Night New York, June 21. Tom Sharkey and Gus Ruhlin will endeavor to put each other into dreamland at Coney Island on the 25th. Sharkey is getting into shape for the battle at his handsome cottage at Sheepshead bay with the assistance of Bob Armstrong, the colored heavy weight, and Jack Root. Ever since the match be tween Sharkey and Ruhlin was arranged the sailor has been doing ligUt work for the battle, but during the last few days, however, he has started in to indulge in the hardest kind of training, and is in fit condition at the present time to enter the ring with his big opponent. The routine of work which Sharkey has mapped out for this fight is almost the same as that which he underwent while preparing for his great championship bat tle with Jeffries several months ago. Ruhlin is getting in shape for the bat tle at Billy Madden's house, which is lo cated at Sixty-fifth street and Third ave nue, South Brooklyn. He is being trained for the contest by his manager. Madden, and Charley (Joff. the California middle weight. Ruhlin indulges in almost the same course of training every day for the encounter as does Sharkey. Ruhlin thinks that he will defeat Sharkey and expects to do the trick in less than fifteen rounds. STATE TENNIS TOURNEY. The Eleventh Annual Event to Be Held at Abilene August 21-24.

Senator Davis Thinks a Giant is Being Aroused in China, Philadelphia, June 21. In the opinion of Senator Davis, of Minnesota, chair man of the senate committee on for eign affairs, the situation in China is even more grave than published dis patches would indicate and may de velop into an international problem such as the powers have not had to deal with in many years. "No man can tell what will come out of the present situation in China," said Senator Davis. "I shall be agreeably disappointed if the immediate conse quence does not result in complications which it will take years to straighten out. Moreover, eenerations to come may find that in awakening China the western world has brought into ex istence a giant which will insist upon taking part in affairs at inopportune moments. ' "That the powers are In a dilemma which thev would have been glad to avoid may be taken for ' granted. It seems inevitable that China will be partitioned. Certainly the acting em press will be dethroned. This cannot be done without a war, which will prob ably repeat itself many times. "It must be remembered, too. that in China lives fully one-fourth of the world's population. The people there have a civilization of a certain sort that was in existence when the wolf was suckling Romulus, t'ntil now the newer civilization has made no impres sion UDon China. If we force upon the yellow race our methods, and in China they ai'e accepted as readily as they have been in Japan, we will cre ate a force which will be sure to work a great influence on the future history of the world.

Doctors have their hobbies as well as other people and in the treatment of disease often carry them too far for the patient's good. For instance in the treatment of indigestion or dyspepsia many doctors give bismuth and nothing else, others rely on pepsin to bring their patients through, still another doctor treats stomach troubles with the var ious vegetable essences and fruit salts. Now one or the other of these excel lent remedies becomes a hobby with the doctor w ho has had most success with the particular one in question, because all of them are first class remedies for indigestion and dyspepsia, but not one of them alone is so good as a combina tion of all of them, such as is found in Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets which con tains not only vegetable essences and fruit salts, but also the freshest, purest pepsin and bismuth, making altogether a remedy unsurpassed for every form of indigestion, sour stomach, nervous dyspepsia, belching of gas, distress after eating, sleeplessness, headaches, etc. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is not a secret patent nostrum, but you can see for yourself what it is and knowing this, its sucess as a dyspepsia cure is not sur prising. .

Among the resolutions adopted at last night's session was the following: "We recognize the right of all peo ple to defend with arms of warfare their liberty and independence.
