As foretold In Tite Sun two months ago. this ountry Is having the llvollost season among tlio boxers that lias yot boon uxporloncod. and this stato of affairs exists In splto of the death of tlio Grnnllo Association of Uobokon and tho failure so far. of any club to toko its place Thoro is no club in tho East ranking with itlier of tho clubs In Now Orleans or Ban Fran cisco. Thoro aro tho llliode Island Club of Provldenco and tho Ariel of Fhlladolphia, but cither sooras to hao tho capacity ot pulling off Batches to a finish. Yet thoro nro four inter It anting fights to como off la this lclully boforo Christmas. Of course thoy will all bo in pri vate In othor places dates hao boon put on I tho bills within tho last two weeks so fre- I ejuontly that thero would bo Jealousy in. this 1 part of tho country it flno progratnmos had & lot beon proparod here But oven as it is. 3 Maw York sports aro growling that thoy have- Bo club, bocauso thoy havo to hustle Boro or less to cot to theso private fights: nheroas, if a club wcro within any distance, they would rocolvo duo pub Mo adrortlsomont of coming events, mid, for that roason. which entails a froedom from worry on the getting tho tip and tho chanco of 11 hands bolng arrested, boo a mora generally j, aasy and poacoful outlook. Thoy also com ( plain because other localities are allowed .to havo tholr clubs whllo New York is not It is I true that thoro are moro than a f ow who prefer tho mysterious surroundings of a fight in pri vate Thero are also many who will so to a akln-glovo Debt and tako all chances of,nrrost. bat thoro aro thousands whowantaclubwhore (love fights to a finish may bo hold. Honoo tie growl. New Orleans has two fights coming off soon. Billy Myor and Jimmy Carroll on Doe 10 at Iho Olympic Club, and Austin Gibbons and Andy Bowon on Dee 22 at the Metropolitan. San Francisco has Bonny Coo of Boston and tho Black rcsrl at tho California Club on Nov. DO, and Joo Choynski and Billy Woods at tho Fnctflc on Doe 7. It was nlso flxod for La Bluncho and Alexander Orcggains, tho ex amatour middle-weight champion of the Pa clllo coast, to fight at tho Occidental on Doe 12. but La Blancho appears to havo found a cause for Interrupting that one Chicago has a couple of matches on tap. Tommy Ityan and Bill IlnwBon, the Englishman, being on tho card nt 144 pounds tor Dec 12. Beforo this. liowover. Johnny Van Heest and Tom White. 120-pound men. will meet to-day. , , Tho turn of mind of Andv Bowen. shown In , his remaking his match with Au6tln Gibbons of l'atorson. Is worth a word or two. A year ago Bowen agreed to fight fllbbons, and the Paterson man went to Now Orleans. Bowen and friends wero hovering about tho dock when GiDbons's steamer arrived, and when i Bowen saw the 5 foett) Inches of Now Jorsey walk down tho gang plank ho wasoeroOmo with sorrow. Bowen is ii very short man. and nibbonstouohed New Orleans not Jong after r tho Fitzsimmons-Dempsey mntcn, when everybody was talking of how tho Now Zeulnndor had won with his height and M reach. Bowen evidently saw on that gang plank somo moro or tho height and reach business nnd, point blank, refused to carry out his promise ThuOlbbonses had to come home without n match or tho forfeit money that Buwen's people had been sup posed to havo nut up. After Gibbons met MnAullllo and the verdict went out that Gib buns was a poor eocond in that race Bowen hwiti-liecl around, forgot about height and roiiuli. and asked for a renewal of the match. Paterson was willing, nnd thero ought to be something of the personal, outside of the money, consideration, when thoso fellows meet in the ring. Another proof of tho oxtreme popularity of A boxing in theso davs Is In the crowdH that torn i out to see exhibitors In tho theatres. 'Peter ; Manor, though be in the champion of Ireland and in earnest nhoa lie says howjll fight "any i body In any way." and has whacked everybody whomjiehaxmot. Is still untried with a first ) class man. Yet he packed a Brooklyn theatre . every alternoon and evening last week, and t has done the same whenever ho has boxed ,V since ho came ti America. Jack Dempsey and "Young Mltehell" are having great puccess, and when Dempsey was taken ill and Brooklyn Jimmy Carroll acted as his substltuto there wnMno falling o? in the attendance. Goorge . Dixon druws until thero is nomoreroomin tfva i theatres where be shows, and tho Blaln i brothers, who took a rest last week, did the jf mine at Miner's Bowery Theatre. Jack Mc- AulKTola making a lot of money In tho West. ; and ho it goes all the way through. Boxing Is j n great game just now. It was never so popu- ( lar. The reason is that thero wcro nover.so ;. many capable boxors In all tho classes. Tako t the classes of longstanding feather, weight, ? light weight, rulddlo weight, and" champion" i and put in those of recent advent bantam. S lu3 pounds. 110 pounds. 118 pounds, 120-122 , pounds. 12ti pounds, and the weltor weights f and each' will be lound to havo several eon- , testantswho can obtain good backing. Yes. those aro great days tor the boxers. f Mention of the Hluin brothers. Bill nnd J .Tnolc. calls to mind the unusual claim. that) '." Jack 8heehan. the well-known tlpstor'on tho i horsey, who Is their manager, malkos for them. i Thofe t.ojs," said Hheohnn to a Hun re f. porter, "lay no pretence to any championship: J, they simply want to tu-knonn as gentlemanly i boxors." The brothers havo iiersunally made i- warm friends slneo they hao been In the Knot. jj In conversation tbe are sociable and Intelll- cent, and iu bearing dignified. They make no f Ijousta about what they havo dono or can do. jf Their big brother Paddy, howevor. scorns T to havo lost a lot of easto since be ,; made tho match ultli Peter Jackson. ' Paddy had quite a number of admirers, somo s two or three voeks ngo. who boldly declared i thatBlavin would glu John I-. Bullivan a real i light, but they urn all silent now. Thero Is not f a good word left for l'uddi. All hands agroo ! t hat it looks ns though Hlav in took on Jackson I forthosolo purpose of evadlnga match with : ipe Dig Fellow, nnci general v now nope. v when they think of Hlavln's " poll parrotting," when ho had Charley Mitchell forn prompter. 'i that thocolored man will Khelilmathruxhing. h It looks very much as though the match bo- $ tween Ptor Maher nnd Jim Corbett will bo ', ratified on Doe 1I. Both sides say thoy aro a ready to arrango a fight under any rules, and r "jich has $1.(H)0 up. Iiilly Madden. Mailer's V laaiioger. soems Inclined to a preforenco for i Iyndori ring rules. Ho says ho will uuarunteo K to pull such a fight off. and points to the wny in which he run tho Jack McAuliffo-Bllly Mer t light In Indiana, whero 'tho gato receipts ;;, leached SiMHX). His argument Is thnt. if ho could conduct that ntTair with success, ho can ,& carry out a London-rules match for a good , btakn. when it will not bo nocessary to soli so H many tlokets. r RUomolindy has proposed to Billy Madden that. ft In tho event of tlio Corbett mutflh falling K tiirough. ho should match Mnhor against Joo s (.hoynskl. "Idon'tsoo how you can figure t Clioyiif-kl to bo In Mnhor's class." replied Mad- den. "i think ou will admit that th Irish- ye man Is away nbovo Jack Fallon, won't joii?

Tom Cattaathaa'a Career ta the King, aad What Ha Ttelaka ofKeaay. Tom Callaghan, who Is matcuod to fight Iiilly Eonny of Jorsey City, tho ex-amateur leathor wolght champion of Amorlca, with skin gloves to a. finish, for a $1,000 purso'.and $200 a side, was born in London about 10 years ago. Ills paronts wero Irish. It is on account of his countennnoo that tho boxer is known as " Tho Irishman." Most ot his ltfo has beon spoilt at Nowcastlo-on-Tyno. where he had plenty of fights, many of tho bare-knucklo order, and all ot which ho won. TOM CALLAOHAy. Tho men who succtimbod to Callaghan in cluded: Tom Crane, in six rounds, with bare knuckles: Jim Anderson, three rounds, bare knuckles: Ed Healoy. four rounds, two-ounce gloves: Tom Hind, two rounds, two-ounce gloves; James Lewis, flvo rounds, two-ounce gloves: James Taylor, seven rounds, bare knuckles: Ed Bally, ono round, bare knuckles; Young Ityan, four rounds, two-ounce gloves, and again in six rounds with bare knuckles: Jim Bell, seven rounds." two-ounce gloes: Tom Brown, four rounds, two-ounce gloves; Bob' Gray, half a round, bare 'knuckles; Tom Morrow, two rounds, bare knuckles, and Ted dy Collins, four rounds, big gloves. He met Lewis a second time: when bare knuckles wero used but tbe mob cut tbe ropes in tbe second round. Callaghan won six competitions in Newcastle, but never met any ot the London cracks., Ho tried to get on a match with Fred Johnston or Nuno Wallace, and his lacker. George tie I by. had 500 forfeit up in tho tiorung Life offleo fortenmonthn with a chalfengo to, cither of them, or any 115-pound man in England, but the money was never covered. Joe Early, backer of Callaghan In the match with Kenny, which is at 114 pounds, give or tako one pound, says that Callaghan is not a showy aoarrer, b"t he is strong and has a good right hand. A study of bis record would Boem to show that Tommy can hit a good punch, as tho longest contest ho has had lasted only seven rounds. His experience with tho bora knuckles will probably help him In his coming nxatch. which is with tho kid glomes. Callaghan arrived in this country with the English blcyclo riders, in the capacity ot trainer. Ho came unheralded, and was In New-York nearly three weeks beforo Joo Early discovered him. Early's attention was at tracted to him by his performance at Htaton Island, when Callaghan knocked clean out a mun of 100 pounds, who Is generally fond of putting on tlio glo en. The big mun broken leg in -falling undorCallaghan's punch. Callaghan Is not ono of the talkative kind ot fighters. He saya vory little, and a Hun re porter had troui le in Inducing him to gle his record. In speaking of tho Kenny match ho said: " I don't say I will beat Kenny. who they say is very clever, strong and game, but I'll do tho best I can." The winner of this tight will bo matched against Georgo Dixon for the championship of tho world. Eurfy says his boy is as faithful to his train ing as the most exacting backer oould de mand, and slnoo ho started in to work at btaton Island, he has captured the good will of all with whom he has romo In contact by his uniform modosty and attention to business. CUESS. ' In tho city of Gratz, the cnpltnl of the prov ince of Styrla.'Austrla, there lived for years a profossor of mathematics, named 3, Bergrr. who not onlynchiered great celebrity through out Europe as one ot tbe best teachers on Euclid, algobrn. and other mathematical scionces. but also as ono of tho leading Eu ropean theorists, at thogamoof chess. Only rooontly a work was published by the profos sor under the title of "Theory nnd Practice of End Gorans." -There Is a great similarity be tween ond games nnd problems, and it goes without saying llmtu groat number of prob lems' woro th creation of J.
