IS BAN JOHNSON'S IDEA
Kid McCoy Returns Home With
a Roll of $25,000.
Declares He is Willing to Tight
Any Big Pugilist.
Chicago, 111., Dec. 24. In an interview
today Ban Johnson declared that he had
no further news of the fight that the
National Leagne might make on the
American.- "The American League," he
continued, "is amply able to take care
of itself, and I am convinced that. the
National people are so well aware of
that fact that there is little prospect of
their making any fight. However, if
they do, wa will simply take in another
eastern city and let them go ahead.
Should the league expand further, Bos
ton will be the other city."
KID BTCOY RETURNS.
Arrives in New York and Tells How
He "Won $25,000 in England.
New York, ree. 24. Looking as spruce
end natty as possible in a nice, new Eng
lish suit of clothes, Kid McCoy walked
down the gangplank of the Campania of
the Cunard line. To. a reporter McCoy
"I am feeling well and don't know tnat
I wis ever in better ealth. I am weigh
ing exactly 1SS pounds and will stop at
the Muldoon's farm, where I will begin
training in anticipation o meeting the
four big heavyweights, Jeffries, Fitzsim
mons, Sharkey and Corbett.
"I shall issue a challenge immediately to
all four and will post a forfeit of 15,000 as
a guarantee of good faith.
! have plenty of money to make good
nv statement I may make, for I won
J25.0C0 on the horses over in England and
consequently have very pleasant recol
lections of my visit.
"I want to emphasize, and very decisive
ly, that my fight with Corbett was strict
ly on the level, no matter what may have
been said or what the sporting public
may think. I never entered into a fake
hght in my life and never will. If I
was on my dying bed I would say the
McCoy also said in reply to the ques
tion if he was to marry Marguerite Cor
neille: "No. I do not intend to marry
ilias Corneille, nor ever had any idea of
It. I have had enough of married life
and propose to remain single."
In regard to his futrue plans McCoy
said: "I want to regain the reputation I
appear to have lost by the false reports
of ray last right with Corbett.
"I say again that that light was abso
lutely on the level. 1 want to meet all
the best men, and first come first served
will be my motto. I do not have any fear
of the fighters refusing to meet me."
"When told that Jeftries absolutely re
fused to light with Jim Corbett, McCoy
seemed somewhat much surprised, and
said he had not heard of it before.
"Weil. I shall go into training just the
same up at Muldoon's place and be ready
fur anything that may happen."
While in Kngiand McCoy met and con
versed with the Prince of Wales at a race
meeting. The "Kid" said the prince was
a very democratic person and was re
markably well informed on pugilistic af
fairs and talked most understanding of
ail the prominent American fighters. Mc
Coy also said that all England was on
tiptoe to see Terry McGovern, whose rep
utation was second only to what he en
joys in this countrv.
The "Kid" flashed a roll of bills big
enough to choke an elephant, and said:
"I am S2S,WK ahead of the English book
ies, and more than made up the losses I
met with in Saratoga last summer. I
won most of nay money on Berri, an Irish
horse, ridden by Jockey Thompson. I
lost only once, and then on the horse

SLOAN IS GRANTED A LICENSE
Tanforan Track Feels J ustified in Al
lowing Him to Side.
San Francisco, Dec. 24. Tod Sloan's turf
standing, so far as California is con
cerned, has .been Fettled. He made ap
plication to the San Francisco Jockey
club, which controls Tanforan track, for
a license, and this has been granted.
As Sloan held a license from the New
York Jockev club, the local association
had ample justification for its course. It
now looks as if Sloan will be privileged
to ride on any of the American tracks
provided he does not apply for license in
England and get refused.
In case the latter event should occur,
it. would be tantamount to disbarment,
which the American association might
feel obliged to recognize. Sloan has not
signified his intention of riding here, his
action being taken solely with a view to
ascertaining his standing.
BRADY WILL MANAGE FIGHTS.
Cincinnati Fistic Carnival Turned
Oyer to the Eastern Promoter.
Cincinnati, Dec. 24. It is now cer
tain that Billy Brady will manage the
fistic carnival a.t the Saengerfest hall
here. Brady Is expected here next week
and will at once get things in shape for
the contest between Jeffries and Ruhlin.
The preliminary bout has as yet not
been decided on. McGovern and Martin
Flaherty are talked of, but this is not
certain, for the reason that McGovern
refuses to appear in a preliminary.
A ten-round go between Ryan and
Root has been suggested if this pair can
be secured under the terms offered.

HARD HEAD SAVED HIM.
James Turner Successfully Ileld
Up National Hotel Elevator.
To his ' proverbial hardheadedness or
some other fortuitous circumstance James
Turner, porter at the National hotel, owes
his life. On his hands and knees Turner
was resting, talking flown the elevator
shaft to the engineer in the basement,
Sunday morning. The elevator descended
from an upper floor. The bottom of tie
freight compartment of theeievator caught
the top of his head and pinned him to
the sill face downward. Fo;i.inately the
elevator was being let down very slowly
at that point and Mopped when it struck
the obstruction. Another inch with Tur
ner's head thus weuged in tho small
space intervening would have crushed his
skull and caused his death.
His face was cut and mashed severely
as it was. his right eyebrow ground oif
and the eye injured. Turner was given
medical attention at the hotel anil after
ward removed to his home. His. recov
ery is assured.

ago succeeded in obtaining money.
She paid off her few debts and then
hired a baker to make a large chicken
pie for her, which she proceeded to en
joy without check cr hindrance. The
sudden change of diet was too much for
her enfeebled system ,and she died as
the result of over-eating.
