SPORTING NEWS OF THE DAY, GATHERED FOR THE DETROIT TIMES UY FIRE IF SMOKE IS SO PLENTIFUL JEFFRIES MEANS TO FIGHT IF HE IS RIGHT, REASONS TAD, AND HERE IS THE NEW YORK EX PERT'S LOGIC. By TAD. NEW YORK. Jan. ll—Out In Lo* Angeles Jeffries is working like a beaver. It is doubtful whether the big ex-cbamplon ever worked auy harder for a big ring battle than he la doing now, and be says it's all for g sparring stunt he Is to do in vaude ville. And the strangest thing about it all Is that Jeff began his strenuous train ing Just as soon as possible after lit tle Arthur Johnson administered a sound thrashing to T. Bums in Aus tralia and incidentally annexed the heavyweight title which Jeff laid aside In flavor of the Canadian. Yho long and short of the whole thing la that Jeff Intends to tight John son. If It Is possible for him to get Into fighting trim, and this is why he la now doing such laborious stunts in tba gymnasium, bursting gloves and punching bags and disfiguring slightly tba personal appearances of his spar ring partner. It Is simply a case of tbsfO being a lire somewhere around tslMlW there's a lot of smoke to be seen. DESPITE ALL HIS ASSUK- AjrCZ TO THE CONTRARY. JEFF REALLY WANTS ANOTHER HAT TDUft— AND WANTS ONE WITH JOHNSON. Os oourse, the big ex-champion doesn’t Intend to take auy long chances, and this early preliminary work la for the purpose of finding out Just what condition he can put him self In for a ring battle. Thera Is more thau one reasou why Jeff should fight Johnson —reasons from the Jeffries standpoint. His end of the purse would be an amount which the btg Californian could not well overlook at thie time. Personally h# would rather whip Johnson than any othsr man hs ever fought, and then the ex-champion would take a pe culiar pride and reap an abundant fin anclal harvest by regaining the title from the present Negro champion. Jeff wants the title to remain with! the white race, and if his training warrants his belief that he can again get into condition it’s a safe wager that Jeff and Jack will have it out In the ring. CHICAGO NEGROES WILL BACK JOHNSON CHICAGO, Jan. 13. —A purae of SIOO,OOO, wherewith to back Jack Johnson against any white pugilist in the world, bids fair to be a rer’tyi soon. Promluent and wealthy mem bers of the colored race In this city have such a project in mind, and in dications now point to a speedy con summation of the idea. Leading colored men say that the money will be bet against Jeffries Just as quickly as against any other w'hile pugilist. They profess hope that Jeff will agree to meet Johnson, as in that case they figure that odds will not be demanded of them, while they are aura the present champion could eas ily win from the retired one.

A MURPHY WILLING TO PHY UP IF -- CHICAGO, Jan. 13 —President Mur phy. of the Cubs nays he is going *o give his ball players that slo.Otto he promised them for winning the Na tional league flag, but that he will do It in such a way as to get the most advertising. The West Side magnate's scheme to ha\e a committee of hi* players go before the commission and ask that he be allowed to hand them the bonus he considers a master stroke In promoting publicity. "I am going to get all the advertis ing out of this gift of SIO,OOO that l can,'’ said President Murphy yester- I day. "i think that's a great advertising stunt. It's something like John T. 1 Brush s play in giving SII,OOO for Pitcher Marquard. Now, everybody j ought to know that Marquard. an In- , experienced minor league pitcher, isn’t worth SII,OOO. But that was a I great move for Brush and I have beeu kicking myself because I didn’t pay i $12.000 for the same player, although he isn’t worth half that.” “There Is no occasion for any play ers to appeal to the commission." said Ban Johnson. "Business between the commission ar.d Mr. Murphy has al ways been handled by Murphy himself in the past. He knows that his re quest for permission to give his team SIO,OOO for winning the last National league pennant will be granted. So what la the use of dragging in the players—most estimable men but nor needed in tills transaction? Sporting Notes Tke 1. M. C. A.

Men have beeu «u gaged on it for weeks, aud Edward Wagner au eminent New York sculp tor. is designing some clever conceits in clay. it is the first pretentious bit of deco ration a Detroit show over has known, and will open the eyes of those who ure used to colored buu.- ing effects.

CHAMP NEW YORK, Jan. 13— Withiu a couple of weeks Frank H Greet, the amateur champion sculler, will under go an operation which is expected to rid him or a trouble that has prevent ed him from showing his best rowing form for several years. | Jtdrks foil?til [pally YMI | ill Hit Way from 206 to 245 :: * * * “* 4 It has been stated several times that Jeffries never weighed less ihuu 220 pounds in the ring When he came east for the first time aud boxed 10 rounds with Bob Armstrong, a Ne gro, at the old l.enox A. C . Jeff S'ai led at 245 pounds stripped. But when ,he met Fitzsimmons at Coney island in 181*9 he weighed about 20k. A j week before this mill Jeffries, who was training at Loch Arbor in New Jersey, got on the scales one day in his street clothes— trousers, sweater, jacket and heavy soled shoes and weighed exactly 212 pounds. He said after he hud beaten Fitz that he would never tight at so light a weight again, and he kept his word, for he met ■Corbett. Sharkey and other pugilists afterward weighing close to 225. When 'he knocked Corbett out in 10 rounds , four years ago Jeff scaled at 220 pounds and never gave a finer exhi -1 bition of skill. If he should decide Ito fight Johnson the boilermaker ! would be compelled to reduce grad ually. which would be accomplished by long runs on the road, steady work in the gvmnasium and dieting. YOUNG SIS II BOSTON CONTRACT BOSTON. Mass.. Jan. 13 —Cy Young, the greatest pitcher of them all. sent in his signed contract for next season today. "So far as we know now.” Manager Lake said. "Young will play with Bos ton In spite ot rumors. The fact that he signed the contract shows that he Is satisfied." PAYNE SIGNS HIS CHICAGO CONTRACT Fred Payne, of Detroit, received his contract with the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday and loaf no time In slgulng it and forwarding It to President Comlskey. Payne was entirely satisfied wtih the terms of his agreement and ex pects to be one of the regular catchers of the team next year, He feels that he has had more than his ahare of baseball mlsfortuue and believes that he should have a good season in 1 901. Those who recall his successful work with Detroit until Illness arid broken digits laid him low, will concur in this belief Nobody Wants Larry.

D. U. S. SHIFTS TEAM FOR SAGINAW GAME When Detroit l Diversity school stacks up against Saginaw East Higu in the D. U. S. gymnaslnm Friday evening, it will appear with a team considerably shifted.

"SULLIVAN NEVER DREW COLOR LINE" Mil’ll l H DtltK.t. By ARTHUR DUFFEY. BOSTON. Jan. 13. — Despite many statements to the contrary that have been published. I fail to find any dis tinct record where John L. Sullivan in the heyday of his ring career drew the color Hue. While It is true that John never fought a colored man In ; the ring, It is a matter of record that he signed to meet Godfrey, the old col ored heavyweight. In this city; also to fight Peter Jackson In San Fran cisco. Neither battle took place, but, ac cording to my authority, this was not I due to any color objections on the part of Sullivan, but the threatened j stopping of the battle by the police in | the rase of Godfrey, and a disagree ment of the promoters In at Frisco. ATHLETfPALS RIDICULE ROSE ... By IGOE. ! NEW YORK. Jan. 13.—You should hear 'em roar. The athletic pals of Ralph Rose, 1 mean, when they heard that Rose Is brushing up for a fling at Jack Johnaon. One man prominently connected with the A. A. 1. told me yesterday that the Idea of ever whip ping Rose into line was preposterous. "Why, he Is the moat notorious coward In the athletic world. He Is a joke with all the boys when It comes to a question of spunk. He's big and powerful enough, but the smallest sprinter in the world could walk up and pull his nose and get away with It. He seems to have no Idea of what his giant frame and power are to him. Otie the ship over to London he was unmercifully goaded and tormented by the little fellows, and he never once I showed anything that resembled gump tion. Ralph Rose has as much chance of whipping Jack Johnson as little Johnny (’onion has Why t’onion can whip Rose himself ’ f Where it Clarence Fox?
