PUGS OF TODAY 00 NOT KNOW TROUBLE "'Toronto" Joack Smith Tells How Hard It Was to Pull Offa Bout in Early Days. UBIQUITOUS SHERIFF WAS ON HAND THEN, AS NOW Used to Chase Out in the Pouring Rain to Hunt the Battle Ground, While the Authorities Kept Watch, Ready to Take the First Unfortunate Pug They Could Find and Imprison Him. 8i'lE('I.\. TO Til INTER MOt'NTAIN. Chicago, Jan. 7.--Toronto Jack Smith, the veteran lightweight pugilist, was in a reminiscent mood the other day, said: "Why, the dissensions and troubles of the fighters of today are nothing com pared to the difficulties we used to en counter when I was actively engaged in the squared circle. hlan)'s the time r've been out in the fields in a pouring rain at all hours of night hunting for the bat tie ground. Yes, and more than once I've been chased by cops and sheriffs who got next to scraps I'd been attending. "*Fifteen or .o years ago we didn't mind hardships of that kind when out hunting for a bit of sport. I had an interesting time of it in Cleveland away back in '85 that I shall never forget. I was matched to fight Sam Eaton, who was then cham pion featherweight of Ohio. We were to fight in a ring pitched on the turf in a little woods almost facing the Glenville rack track. About .oo blooded sports got the tip and all had paid $. apiece for his pastelboard entitling him to see the mill. I was waiting under a tree in the woods talking to one of my seconds when a pretty well dressed bloke walked up and got into Conversation with ttle. He Was the Sheriff. "It was about 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and the gang was to be around at 3:5S. I thought this guy was one of the swells who had put up his three bucks to see the fight. lie was a smooth talker, and I kind of liked his looks. lie said: 'You're Jack Smith. hain't you?" "'I told him I was. and then he said he had seen tme with Reddy Gallagher down town. lie asked mIe if I thought I could win. and I told him I thought it was a cinch. "He had scarcely turned to go when Reddy Gallagher came running up. and asked what that fellow had been saying to mte. I told Reddy just what had been said. 'It's off.' said Gallagher. 'The gsy you were just talking to is the sheriff, d Sawyer. and he has a dozen deputies with him down near the roadside.' Took a Quiet Sneak. "That settled it. We proceeded to sneak to the nearby hotel. and arriving there the promoters decided to pull the fight off in a down town hall at 8 o'clock that night. At the appointed time the boys were all in the room. and Iaton and I were in the ring waiting for the call of time when a loud rap on the door caused us all to jump. "'Open the door in the name of the law," yelled Sawyer on the outside. '()penl up or we'll bust it.' "Eaton and I jumped iinto our pants., and in a jiffy the gloves were cut off and placed one each in hats of various friends. A colored fellow who had been carrying say satchel made a break for the window, and he was half way outt when Pete ?lannen and two other fellows grabbed him. The room was on the fifth floor of the bhuilding. so you can imagine what would have happened to that coon if lie hadn't been caught in time. "Well, the sheriff was finally let in, but he couldn't do a thing. We hadn't started to fight. and we all declared we had been bIolding a political meeting."

LACROSSE SHOULD RANK AMONG THE POPULAR AMERICAN GAMES No Reason Why Leading Canadian Sport Should Not Rival Baseball in General Interest. Why lacrosse should be denied the pop ularity accorded to the football and base ball in America and cricket in England is difficult if not impossible to explain. It Is a fine game to play and a good one to witness. Yet, despite the 3s years' etTorts, it has failed to find favor in the sight of the sportsmen. The word "lacrosse" is seldom heard in the large cities, although there are several teams among the col leges. l.acrosse is a much older game than iootball; it is probably even more an cient than cricket, for it was indulged in with much zest, not infrequently at tended by bloodshed, by the North Ameri can Indians long before the new world was discovered. One's imagination, as sisted by authenticated fact, can picture one of these prehistoric encounters-the sparely clad aborigines scattered over a 'field" miles in extent, at each end of a pair of trees for goal posts, the men widlyicasing an extem orized ball with SHARKEY AND HIS FA-. MOUS ARM FOR PUNCH Sailor Tells How Good He Is to a Rather Unappre ciative Crowd. SPECIA T TO THE INTER MOUNTAIN. New York, Jan. i7.-Tommy Sharkey, just at the present time, is gaining much notoriety in challenging Munroe, the Butte miner. In speaking of the match, he said: "Look at that left arm of mine. If ever I swat Munroe with it he will dive back underground and commence digging nug gets again. I am a better man today than I ever was. If you don't believe it go ask me friend, 'Spider' Kelly." Just about this time someone In the crowd was rude enough to remark, "Back, back I" The sailor's eyes flashed. 'Back, back, is it?" shouted he. "'Ti. not bace, wid me.

Scudder Declares That the Manly Sport Is the Thing to Knock Out Evil With--He Lives Up, to It. Back inl the western wilds of New Jersey there is a sLergyman who is engaged in starting a social reformation on a plan that is as novel as it promises to be efTective. It is a plan that is thought up-to-date. In the old "blue law" days it would have bee n regarded with something more than suspicion, but the world is grow itng wiser as it grows older. "Boxing gloves," claims the Rev. Joh. I.. Scudder, "are more effective in knock ing out evil than are three-hour sermons and ao-minute prayers." Besides boxing gloves, the Jersey City divine has faith in dumbbells, tennis racquets, billard cues, bowling halls, hase ball bats. foothballs, oars, wrestling mats, chestweights, military marchings and a score of other things connected with the athletic life. JOHN L. PAYS A COP TO KEEP HIM SOBER Harris Siys He is Done With the Big Fellow--His Last Jag. , S'St IA. ro li TI INI iR MO .I'ý".At , New York. Jan. tb.--Ien Harris, who has been managing John I.. Sullivan on the latter's vaudeville tour for the past seven weeks., reached New York yester day and said he was glad to get back home alive. Seated at a table flanked by a glass of something that was particularly indicative of Yuletide, the great John I..'s manager leaned back and breathed a sigh of content. "I've been up against some pretty rough deals," he remarked. "and have had some interesting experiences in my time, but this tour of Joihn I.. Sullivan was the limit. "For the first five or six weeks John was not the soberest man in the world. but we managed to pull olT his engage ments and did not break contracts. In Detroit. however, the 'champion of chainm pions' broke loose and made the tow l whirl 'round on a lamp post. The Tear That Ended Tour. "Of course, you know lie went oni a horrible tear that ended in the town jail. Not a soul came forward of his n-any friends to help him. He finally sent for me. but I was disgusted with his actions and at first refused to go and see him. Then I thought better of it, and called at the cell. I upraided him for his ac tions and told hint that the next day they would put him in the Black Maria and cart hinm off to trial with a lot of bunts. "Well, the big fellow laid down on the floor and cried as if his heart would break. I felt so sorry for himt that I got a magistrate out of bed who signed an order for his release. lie immediately signed the pledge and for two days lie was all right. Then the deluge! I was deluded into the belief that he had turned over a nsew leaf and invited all the news paper mten in town to occupy boxes at the theater and be conivinced for them selves that John had cut out the liquor. "\'ell, sir, he rolled on the stage like a whaleback in a heavy sea. lie began his monologue at the wrong end and tried to talk backwards. The audience began to laugh. "'Wot chu latin' at' ' said the big felI low. "This amused them. and they laughed some more. 'Say, he yelled. 'You mugs sake clubs and other im!plements clsose. nt.0q with an eye to effective disablement of opponents than to the scoring of "points." 1'he spectators "backed their fancy" in 'horses and cattle. The squaws of the teams were wont to follow in the wake of their respective huslbands, encouraging them with switches, applied with accuracy and vigor to their Iacks. The game as played today has lost much of its old-time Interest. National Canadian Game. Lacrosse has Ibecome the national ball game of Canada. In winter it is played by skaters on the ice or on the snow by teams wearing overshoes. It is sel dom played in England during the win ter months, for the bad light interferes with the nicety of judgment and ra pidity of reply essential to a skillful performance. The field is usually about 2oo yards long and 1oo yards wide. At each end is a bag_ inet six feet osquare. and the oh ------- --U like Munroe. When I was at sea I used to beat o50 cannibals on a deserted island every week." "Chop, Tom, chop I" again came a voice. "The gang is on to you." "On t' nothin'," responded the sailor. "I'm the d-dest best man in the world. I can whip-" "Come, have a drink Torn," interrupted a friend. "As I wos sayin', I can whip any-" "Oh, Tom, under the table with you," came a voice from the crowd. "Who said that?" angrily asked the sailor. "To the tall and uncut," said another. "Back to the embalming fluid," added a third. By this time the sailor was red in the face. He was ready to fight and did not care much who his opponent might be. The crowd took in the situation at a glance and only kept teasing Tom. "Ye are a lot of scalpions," retorted In the gymnasium fitted up in the lsec ment of his church, the First C'omircega. tional of Jersey C(ity, he has gatherAl the boys of the neighborhood. 1.,t of thenm. and has formed them into a military hIa talion.

Tontm. "I whipped better men th n y are long before I ever left Oireland." By this time the crowd got Tom coollled down and again asked him concerninr his good left arm. "That arm," said Tom. "belongs to the best man in the world. It's the strongest that wos ever hung to a man's shoulder, and that's t' arm that will do Munroe. Why, I'm so strong in that arm that whlen I was at sea I could pull a shark's jaws apart." "To the screwi room In the bug joint with you," came the answer.
