themselves and rave the races a com

LOOKS a If a new foundation will
have to be built for tnc renewal
of the Dempaey-Mlsko hostilities If
aald renewal is ever to conic off. Hut
for an unruarded moment when
ilisko made the admission Unit Dcrap

or two, the bout might havo been put
on somewhere hereabouts bforc this,
At the time Mlike mado hi honest
statement he was in no condition to
flrnt anybody, but still tho impression
remained that a contest with IJmp
aey would be so terribly ono-sided that
the fans wouldn't patronise it. Doinp.
aey waa matched with Kulton and
the bout needed some advertising.
Mlike figured It out, and properly too,
that his knockout by Western Jack
would help the rate. Mo tefused to
swell the receipts by going on with
Dcmpsey half fit and only be double-
dOIITEnS are a funny lot. Thoy

different now, however. Mlske has
been home In Ht. I'aul, hu been doc
tored and is back on the Job, thor
oughly fit to tackle Dempsey. Ho is
anxious to correct the Impression that
no la afraid or mm or anybody cut
so it looks as If It la up to the match
makers to rot busy again. Dempsey
will lose his lumbago as soon aa
aomethlnic like real money Is offered

Just to show how Mlske feels at the
present time. It Is only necessary to
revert to a letter Just received from
Jack Iltddy, his manager- Jack ad
mils mat ne lan t in tne cnamnionsn:
class among managers, but still he
shows that he Is learning fast. Listen
to this from him:
"As Mlske's manager I am pro
pared to post a forfeit of any
amount with any reputable snort
ing man In the East for Mlske to
light Dempsey. Mlske will meet
him In a match of six, eight, ten,
twelve, fifteen or twenty rounds,
whatever the conditions are that
prevail where the match Is staged.
lempsey and Mlske fought once
before In BU I'aul laat May. In
the five HU I'aul and Minnnupoll
papers Dempsey secured three
"popular" decisions and Mlske two.
- In view of this It Is ridiculous tn
say that Mlske Is afraid of Dcmp
sey. 1 now have four offers for a
Dempsey-Mlske match. Tom
Andrews would put It on In Mil
waukee, Dick Jamison Is after It
for Atlanta. Dave Drlscoll would
like it for the Jersey City llase

Philadelphia has been negotiating
with me. I have accepted thn
terms offered by all four of these
promoters and mailed them

'Ts an old saying that good horses
make good Jockeys. It's true nln

rode. Then he became enmeshed In

L.vke take a new grip on things and

than to show that Hedwell had him
wrong. Instead, Lyke has fallen away

and what makes things look bad for
him Is that he Is losing on publicly
backed favorites, horses which on
form have looked reasonably profit

at Saratoga he rode Panaman and
