WALTER J. KING & BROS., Mgrs., CASTLE RRooms I and 2, Bailey Block, CASTLE. SHELBN N, + MONT.N,,. THE PUGILISTIC ARENA. Its Occupants Discussed at Length From an Artistic Point of View. A Diversity of Opinion Expressed by Some Noted Sports and Professionals. Some Class It With the World of Art, While Others Claim It Is Butchery. A question involving social ethics has arisen in this city within the last forty eight hours. It was brought to public at tention by a letter sent to Mr. Mulholland, chief inspector of contract laborers at the barge office, says the New York Recorder. The letter was signed M. It. Worrell, and from its tenor the writer is presumed to be a woman. The writer wants to know why Francis Patrick Slavin and Mr. Charles Mitchell are allowed to come to America to fight under contract, while an American woman cannot import a servant. The question has narrowed itself down to these few words, "Is a pugilist an ar tist?" As will readily be seen, these five words are pregnant with philosophical in terest. At least, such is the opinion ex pressed by such men as E. J. Henley, the actor; Charles Harris, the comedian; Steele Mackaye, Henry E. Dixey, Billy Edwards, Frank Stevenson, Paddy Green, bartender for Steve Brodie, and the inimitable Patsy Doody, the pride of the Fourth ward. The four first named gentlemen were seated around a table in the Hoffman house art gallery yesterday afternoon just before the dinner hour. Mr. Henley was looking into the cool, green depths of a mint julep, while his right hand tinkled the ice against the sides of the glass with two old-gold straws. He is a tall, nervous young man, whose apparently frail body contains a good deal of vital force. "Is a pugilist an artist?" he repeated in a tone of dreamy introslection. "Decidedly, yes. A first class, top notch pugilist has attained a very high artistic altitude. Let us depart for a moment from the main question at issue and consider the tout en semble or proper environment of the puail istic profession in a fight to a finish. The half naked men, the glistening bodies, the perfect machinery of the human f. oame! See the flashing eyes, the tragic attitudes of the men! Then look at the spectators. Mark their eager attention, their shouts of aporoval when a good blow is delivered. All this goes to make up a picture such as artist never put unon sanvas. These are accessories such as never grace the boards of a theater. Now, as to the question per se. A man who can whip every man who stands before him must be an artist, be cause he has demonstrated his ability over some one else. A dog which can whip every dog brought against him is an artist, a barber who can cut your hair in a more artistic manner is an altist. The artistic idea is, after all, only one of degree, and I will bet a hundred that Frank P. Slaviu can whip John L. Sullivan if they ever come to gether." "I'll take that bet," said Mr. Harris. Steele Mackays combated Mr. Henley's argument. lie wanted lienley to define his idea of art so that a premise might be es tablished from which to argue. Mr. Mack aye claimed that a pugilist was not an art ist ecausahe creatednothing. T'hepugilist, he said, was purely an agent of destruction. ioe used mechanical means to a mechanical end. 'L'here was nothing of the nature of inspiration in his work. "But," said Mr. Ilenley, "did not Mr. Sallivan create when he introduced the knock-out blow into pugilism? Where did he get that blow if he did not conceive it in his big brain, just as Raphael conceived the picture of the Madonna? Didn't he shape that idea out of immaterial and unsubstan tial thought and then use his big, substan tial and material fist to place it where it would do the most good? I guess he did. Mr. Mackaye, take a little elixir and quick en your intellect. What'll ye have?" T'he question was gainine in interest. The waiters were attracted and stood around in listless attitudes. While Mr. Henley lifted a glass of Hoffman House nectar to his lips Mr. Henry E. Dixey, who had just returned from Boston, said in his lazy Mark Twain drawl: "In my humble opinion the pugilist ranks with the butcher or the surgeon. If they are artists he is one. Certainly it cannot be denied that the pugilist is a deco rative artist. The mroan who comes out of a fistic encounter with a bloody nose, two black eyes and his skull punched into the shape of a Chinese pagoda must have a high regard for the artistic ability of his antag onist. No; pugilism, in my opinion, is about on a par with suicide and murder. I enjoy boxing for points, and I make a de cided distinction between boxing and fight ing. There isn't anything artistic to me in the spectacle of a man whose vitality has been pounded out of him and who is in the give-my-chewing-gum-to. my-sister condi tion, and who is urged to 'go for him again, Billy.' Considering pugilism as an art it is interesting to see the English genus of the species in his native land. He wears a tip pet around his neck and his hat on one side. He talks from his fifth rib. If a big gun wants to witness a little mill he sends for Muggins, and the big gun looks him over like a buyer would size up a Berkshire hog. Then he says, 'Mug, me boy, I want you to meet Sooggins next week. Now, run along and get yourself in shape.' In America, the human animal shakes the hands of aldermen and senators and drinks over the same bar with them on terms of perfect equality. These men may be artists, but I can't see it. Do I squint?" Mr. Billy Edwards thinks that a pugilist is an artist, and a progressive one at that. He calls attention to the progress made in the art, as he terms it. during the past thir ty yeats. There was a time, he says, when endurance was the only thing that counted in the ring. Now it was a question of a few blows delivered in the right place. These places, he said, were the point of the chin, the carotid artery, the heart and the stomach. Pugilism was an art, in Billy's opinion,'which consisted in hitting your op pinent as often as you could and avoiding punishment yourself. "What were your eyes and your hands given you for," he continued, "if not to Iroteot you in the manly art of self de fense? And where does the expression 'manly art' spring from if not in the popu lar appreciation of pugilism as an art?" Frank Stevenson, who has acted as a ref eree in more fights than any man in New York city, expressed a strong aflirmative opinion. Mr. Stevenson has both experi ence and judgment. He ieferced the Jack McAuliffe-Jem Carney dispute at Itevere Beach, near Boston. When the disputing artists had arrived at a critical stage in the performance Mr. Stevenson's di: irning eye eaw several lovers of art it the ring-side elevating bottles and lifting 44-calibres in an artistic and thieatening manner. lie very wisely decided that neither artist had demonstrated his superiority over the other, and rendtered a quick decision to that ef feet. As he elegantly expresses It, "I think I saved my topnot by that decision." Inm effect Mr. Stevenson's opinion is thatt a pugilist of the first order is an impression ist of the highest ability. He produces col ore of the brightest verinilionr tint, and scat ters them around with the moat reckless profur iou. One of Slavin's or r'ullivtn's smashes prodnces a very striking effect. It usually.raises lumps, swelled ncut . and in terferes seriously with nasal cartilage. Hu3 canvas becomes cove ed with blacks, blueo anud reds, bestowed with lanre and liberal hands. 'there could be no question of the proleoiency of a pugilist as an artist. Mr. Paddy Green, who noets s artistic compounder of Bowe'r cocktails and Hester strea t lemonades for Steve Ilrodie, said: "What is a artiat, anyway?" "lie's ii man as paints pictures, you silly," said a bystander. "Well," said Paddy, "I never heard that John L. could paint pictnres. I know be can break 'em. But 11 bet he can unjoliut 1iavin's nose wid his left while I'm swally in' a whisky sour." Mr. Patsy Doody summed up the question about eas tersely en it could be exprorse I in tae following words: "You see, it' ii ke this. To tho F~'rfh warl a pugilist is ia l:oirr. but in the Man hattan Athletic club he's an artist." Automatic Manners. But time changes minds as well as man. ners, though even now when making changes from one circle to another, it often requires that adaptability which could be said found in one who has automatic man. ners. However, such radical changes not only appear in drawing-room repartee, street dress, etc., among people, but also in the conveniences and luxuries affordes mankind.
