Talks of Ilis Coming Fight With the Akron Giant. LESS THAN 20 ROUNDS Jim Jeffries Hopes to Easily Dispose of Big Gas. Declares Ms Mighty Arm Is In Shape Again. New York, Jan. 8.Jarnes J. JeffrieS. the heavyweight champion pugilist, made a. flying visit to this city today from Bos ton. The object of his trip was to confer with his manager, William A- Brady, in regard to training quarters for his con test in Cincinnati with.Gus Ruh lin on February 15. "I notice," said the champion, "that Bath lin has been making considerable capital out of the twenty round draw he , and fought in Sa.n Francisco in 1Sl.rT.. appears to have tried to create the im pression that he had the better of the contest. In doing so he misrepresents the facts of the case. Fate was particu larly kind to him on that occasion, other wise he would never have got a. draw with me. Of course I apprectate the fact that Ruhlin has increased his knowledge of boxing considerably since that thne and will be a, hard man to beat, but the fact that I have also learned a thing or two since that battle should not be over looked. I think that the records show that I have learned just a bit more than Ruhlin. Our relative status in the ring today is convincitur proof of this. In obtaining the title of champion I defeated one man who, within a Reriod of six months scored a knockout against Rnh lin, Bob Fitzsimmons. However, the twenty rounds to take place in Cincinnati next month will clearly determine the question of supetiority.' Further a,long Jeffries said: "I am glad I am going into the ring a.gaire- I'm dead tired of being a, footlight champion. I he.ve been counting the days during the past few weeks waiting for the time to come wthen I could go into training. Be fore another three months have gone by I hope to have two more victims on my list, Ruhlin and Sharkey. With all of my winning trio championship and putting Fitzsimmons. Sharkey and Corbett out of business in jig time, I've had tough luck during the past year. That left arm of mine kicked up a. row. The doctors etho monkeyed around with it for me had me guessing for some little time. I can tell you. Let's see, what. was it they said was the matter? "Oh, yes, I know: something about the membranes getting twisted or pulled apart or something. I'm willing to con fess now that it's all right; that I never expected to use it again, that is, to fight with. It would seem to mend up all O. K., and then when I tried to use it to 'box with the first good, hard jar put it out of besiness double quick. Since I've been on the road I have given it the toughest kind of tests. I've boxed with big, rough chaps as hard as I could get them to come to me. I've wrestled a. whole lot, and never once has the arra given me any trouble. That makes things look rosy for my battle with Ruhlio. Rosy for rne, I mean. I guess Gus will have to look out for himself. "I'm just a,s certain of defeating Ruh lin as I am of eating my Oinner today. and thats the Sriek that never gets byt MP. I'll make things bum fer awhile. JetYries the actor has been sent back to the stable for a time, and Jeffries the fighter is on deck. Look out for him." A WONDERFUL HORSE-- A Sketch of Kingston and Some of His Colts Philadelphia. Jan. 3.--Por the first time in ten years the leading winning stallion of America is owned by a private breed ing' establishmentCastieton farm. be longing to Millionaire James R., Keene and son. a firm which breeds itS horses to carry its racing colors and riot for the market. The breeding triumphs of this firm in 12iis) are as brilliant as were the records made upon the turf by their 'Win ning stable, both in England and Amer ica, during the sea,son just closed. They not only own the stallion Kings-ton, who heads the winning list for li0o, but they also owned the dead Domino, whose get are second. Rlid thus outstrips all other great star sires of the American breed ing world. Such triumph has never come to any breeding establishment. either pub lic or private, since the brilliant days of Woodburn, two decades ago. King'ston as a turf performer ranked second on the list of winning American horses and earned 1142,52 in the eighty.. nine races won. and yet be had a. hard time to find a home in the stud. He was first purchased by Belle Meade farm, but upon going to New York to settle for him and ship him to Tennessee, M. F. Dwyer informed General Jackson that be proposed to race Kingston another year, and the tratie was declared off. Then Miiton Young of MeGrathiana secured the refusal of him, but that trade also fell through. Finally the horse reached Kentucky under the care of Eugene 'Leigh, and through Leigh the ?Messrs. Keene. w'ho bred Krngston and solit him as a colt, uttimately bought him. Today Ills value cannot be estimated. arid his owners, as protection to their interests. carry a 1:DJ's. life insurance policy on him in a London company, which makes him the moist heavily insured horse in the stud in America. Kinestons get first appearoet on the turf In ISA, his oldest son or daughter now being' 4 years old. The following table shows the winnings of his get each year, in the three seasons below summarized, he having furnished the turf with forty winners, that have earned V1.4,15 stakes and purse on the turf: EINGSTONS STUD WINNINGS BY YEARS.

MAINE'S BIG GAME RECORD. --- Total of Deer and MOOS. Killed This 'rear. dIspatch from Kineo foots up the big game record for tbe season Just end ed in Maine at 3,183 deer and 138 moose, a decrease from last year's record of 261 deer and one moose. These figures show that the moose are boldyna their own, and the decrease in the number of deer is not as large as was expected. T-wo weeks of December showed a very large gain over the figures of last year--404, against 279, a net gain of 125 deer. The record for the closing week was 215 deer, a gain of 82 over last year. Greenville again leads as the record shipping. point. Lying, as it does. at the foot of :Moosehead lake, this station draws from the extensive country above. Nearly 1000 deer were shipped from that point during the season. Pat ten sent out over 2o0, Norcross about 2C;0, Staceyville and Grindstone a trifle over 17(., and Millinocket, Means Siding, West Eeboois. Schoodio. Ashland. Ma sardis, Katandin Iron "Works, and Brownville Junction made good show ings. Greenville shipped 32 moose and Bat ten 32. Staceyville, Jemptland, bou, Fort Fairfield, (;rindsrone, Nor cross, Ashland and Masardis occupy proralnent places in the moose record. The record day was October 2,2, when 1.23 deer and nine moose passed through Bangor. The best week was the fourth, 5S6 deer and 50 moose being shippe-d out of the state. This season's record is some 200 deer larger than the. season of 189S, and, with the exception of 3.85R, the largest known. CRESCEUS' FUTURE TASIta , Eetcharn Is Arranging Races For the Coming Season. Chicago, Jan. 3.--George IT. Ketcham says that he will soon commence jogging Cresceus for further record breaking ex ploits next season. He desires to ar range for a. series of races in the grand circuit between Cresceus, '2:04, and The Abbot. 2:021i, and has named Cleveland, Buffalo, and New York as special points for such events. As to the sale of Cresceus, Mr. Ketch am sayS he had but one offer to sell him for a. fair price, and that carne from a man in England. It la a larger price than turf gossips said Mr. Lawson was willing to pay for the stallion. A series of match races between Cresceus and The Abbot would attract enormous crowds--the greatest of modern times, down the grand circuit. If The Abbot should trim the Toledo whirlwind it would not take Mr. Scannell but a few minutes to wipe out that $26,500 check with a few pool tickets. Mr. Ketcham will insist upon the races beingthree in live. vvhile The Abbot party stick for hut two in three. A match well made is half vvon. The Abbot should win, best Vivo in three, but that Toledo bulldog is dangerous in a three-in-five bout. NO LONG 31121PS FOR PIRATES.

Chicago or St. Louis for a Sunday game and jump back again for a game in Pittsburg on Monday," he said. Mr. Kerr would not say whether or not Dreyfuss would be re-elected. RITHLIN BEGINS TRAINING. - Confident of Securing Decision Over JeEries in Coming Fight Poston, Jan. 3.--"I have every assur ance in the world that my fight with Jim Jeffries for the championship of the world will be decided in Cincinnati on the date agreed on," Gus.Ruhlin said this afternoon, after g-etting a, good rub dovçn after a brisk sparring- bout with his pa,rtner, "Big 1,:,'d" Martin, the Den ver heavyweight. "I will weigh within a pc,und or two of 190 pounds when I face the champion and have about ten pounds to take off before I can scale that. I am not going to be in any hurry about reducing. I want to be in the finest possible condition for Jeffries, and intend to make the fight of rny life. "I know that Jeffries will weigh about thirty-five pounds more than I will when we put up our hands in Obio, but that is not going- to frighten me any. I fought him once and know v,-hat he can do, and while I do not think I have any cinch on this fight, I feel entirely confident that I am going to get the decisic,m No, I do not think there Win be any knocking- out done on either side. I know that he cannot knock me out." OVER A CENTURY A DAY. Massachusetts Wheelman Rode 38,- 889 Miles During 1900.

BEAUTY OF THE TRUST Can Be Shipped 5,000 Miles Cheaper to the Consumer Than From Hutchinson, About 150 Miles Away. .1,...01 Up to July Article IV as Worth 86.00 Ton. Kansas City, Kan.. Jan. 3.The Armour Packing company received yesterday the first consignment of art order for 10,000,000 pounds of salt,.which it is importing from Lisbon, Portugal. This consignment came in the bulk as the ballast of a tramp steamer to New Orleans, and was shipped by freight from there here. With the exception of salt for use in butterine, this is the first that has been imported in large quantities by the Ar mour's for fifteen years. James Fennell, the company's purchasing agent, said last night that importation became necessary because of the raise in price which had bE en made by the National Salt company. I:p to last July, he said, it was possible to get such salt as was needed in the ex clusively meat packing departments for $350 per ton. Since then the price has been raised to $6, and it is now found cheaper to import from Lisbon, which is 5.0o4) miles distant, than from Hutchinson, Kan. The idea, of importing originated in the Kansas City plant, and the entire quanti ty bought will be used here. This is the first time that salt was ever imported to Kansas City in the bulk. Hitherto it has always been brought in sacks. Fifteen cars are used At the Ksinsas City plant every week. MRS. NATION MUST WAIT. -- Wichita Woman Finds It Easier to Get Into Jail Than Out.
