Washisotox, Jan. ft l'rolnbly no man in tho Unitod BUtcs Is bettor nuallflod to dlsousa John L. Bulllvan and his affairs than Ilugh Coylo, who In 1881 was tho roproentatlve of ft press syndicate and trat oiling with the Sul livan Combination on Its sparring tour. "Cliarloy Johnston called Mitchell and Slavln down In good strlc," was his romark this ovonlng. " and showod up tho bluff of tho Englishmen. Nobody knows nuy bettor than Blnvlnhlmsolfthftthotsnot In it with a man ot Sullivan's notvo and hitting powors. and ho was only too glad of an opportunity to crawfish out of a fight with tho champion. "Johnston is clear grit, too, when It comes to n question of putting up money on Bulllvan, for ho has ns high an opinion and Is as good a judge of a flghtor as any man on earth. Then, too, ho knows that Sullivan will neror throw a friond down, tor he had a practical illustration ot this fact on ono occasion when Bulllvan was to bo pitted against Jem Maco in a glove con- tost This match, however, roll tnrougn do causo Maco wanted Sullivan to make a hHipo dromo. "1 have often rogrettod that I did not Sonsont to his proposition.' said Bulllvan one ay, "and then turn In and glvo him good boating for hln Impudence,' That's the kind of manHulllvans," continued Mr. Coylo. "andno wonder his friends stick up for him. " Did you know that Bulllvan ruptured him self once in hitting tho only man who made a dhow of fighting him on n tour? , No ono out side of our company knew anything about It, and tho matter nas never boon made publto until no w. Wo were at Astoria. Or., and. tn re sponse to tho offer ot fl.OOOforany man who would stand against Bulllvan four rounds, a stalwart Fronchumn appeared. Ho was a boxing master weighing upward,, of 300 pounds and built In proportion. IIIb nosh looked so hard that I do not belleyo nknlfo could cut It. Bo certain was he of his ability to do Bulllvan that bo made us deposit the challenge monoy with the Mayor of tho town, and at Uio same tlmo he exacted from the onicialB a guarantee that It heklllod Bulllvan ho would not be molested. " According to the Frenchman he wanted that money badly, for it would enable him to establish hlmBolf In a saloon over in Lo Hello Franco, and he knew this to be the chanoe of his life. Consequently he made up his mind to light from the outset und he provod him self tho gHinoBl opponent nnd pluckiest fighter whom Hullivan mot in tho II fty-ono battles comprising our tour in that year. But the Frenchman did not win the fight or money, for Bulllvan knocked him out In what proved to bo the best contest of our tour. Iu fact tho Fronohman was tho bost man whom Bulllvan ovor mot In tho course of the round In whlob ho finished his roan, however, tho Big fellow sustained a rupture, and It was neoessary for us to hurry him baok to Han Francisco, for surgical treatment Luckily, wo found a surgeon just out from Boston, and a great friend of Sullivan's, who undertook to relieve him. When It was proposed to etherize the Big Follow he calmly called for a Perfecto ci gar, and with It clenched between hlstoeth ho surveyed tho operation which he had to un dergo. Attor being laid up for a week he was fully restored to his former condition, and the surgeon expressed, himself In the highest tortus concerning the fnrtttudo displayed by Bulllvan. stating, moreover, that the operation was a sueooHS through tho clear grit of the pa tient That's the kind ot a man Blavln tried to bluff, but It didn't go. through the norvo of Charley Johnston."

The preliminary meeting was Drestdod over by Mr, Bnoar of Kansas City, with Pat Leadloy or Dotrolt as Secretary pro tern. The discus sion as to the make-up of the circuit began at once. Tbe dolegates to tho Convention, par ticularly those Irorn. Kansas City, are more than plcasmlwlth the outlook. Indianapolis Is a splendid city, aa every one knows, nnd will bo a power In tho new league, while Toledo. Is a really fine place. It has 100,000 population nnd a well-educated baseball taste The uuos tion of player Is an interesting one. There Is no lack of mon tor tho eight clubs to draw upon. Each club will. go Into the league on the same basis. The old roenres and the old contracts will not count but It is proposed that a redistribution of players, bo made on the same plan us that followed tn the recent readjust tn en t ot the National and American bodies at Indianapolis.

This organization has beon in oxlstcnco somo time, and ha, over boona powerful factor In tho military schol astic) field of nthlotlo sports. During tho past season tho Hudson lth or Longuo was composed ot l'eoksklll Military Academy, Holbrook's of Sing Sing, HlTorvlow ot 1'oughkoopBlo. and tho New York Military Acadomy ot Cornwall. Altera hot fight tho chumplonshlp was final ly won by Itlvorvlow. rooksklll won second placo, and Holbrook's and Now York M. A. finlshod third and fourth respectively. Tho Longuo will do somo groat work in base ball this spring. Vrod Gould ot l'eoksklll is President of tho Loaguo. The Poeksktlt Acadomy ha3 for several years hold a prominent placo in school sports. Borne Tory fine college and amatour athlotcs aro groduntos of PoeksktlL Among the moro noted is Willie Windle, the bicyclist. Wlndlo used to bo known ns the "boy wonder" when he wan a cadet at l'eoksklll. The football eleven, although it did not win tho pennant, deserves prnlie. The eleven had fioteamtopraotiso ngalnBt, nnd the grounds tad not been put In juropor condition, for good football, playing. What tho team lacked In science It made up in courugo and pluok, and iext year tho chances aro that tho l'ooksklll ads will mako a good fight tor first place. Tho team of '01 was mode up as follows! Left end, Parker; lett taoklo, tfargeant: loft Siard. Bulllvan: contre. Drayton: right guard, . iqnor: right tackle, Daniel: right cud. Boyd; half bucks. Pltzglbbon aud llnrry Btvlos: full back, Olil; quarter books. Potter and lianLcn, Tompkins und Watklns. Ono victory gave the l'eoksklll lads an abun dance of joy. They defeated the Lake Moho gan JL A. 24) to 0. About tho time of this football victory a great aross-country run was held, Of tho hares Parker camo in ahead by eight minutes, altor an elght-mllo chaso. Ho was followed by Hnrry tjohonblom. Dcckor, and Orahood. Of the hounds i rarer enmo in tlrBt. Oreon baura sooond nnd Major Bacon third. These three were In the flrnt class. In tho second cluss Frank ltankon. Tompkins, Sullivan, Crocket, Hotchklss nnd Orr came In In the or der named. Cooper of the third class finished firht Buns llko this are held ut different times, and they nre always looked upon as a big eveut tn the athletic circles of tho school. On Jan. .10 tho gymnusts will hold their an nual exhibition. This competition will be held for medals. Last year Holroyd won ono of tho medaln ollered for superior work on tbo paral lel and horizontal barn. Do Haullos, by his nap tricks on the rings, won the other medal. The cadets havo tho advantage of nn un usually good instructor. Major Burton Is tlio man. He Is n thorough athlete, and n royal good fellow among hlB pupils. The Jlujor Is a graduate of Harvard PeekHkill's baseball prospects aro good, as ao many ot tho '01 team aro on hand ready to work for success In tho spring. Kvery (lay that Is the least bit mild Is taken advantage of for torao heaity practising. Do ttaulles. tho medal winner, is tho tlnest short-stop In the longuo. and the cadets expect blm to do great things during tho coming season. Orahood is very satisfactory at tliiiubiise. and Boyd can take hold of the spliero tn great shape at first, Brodle. the catcher, is nlways In good form. The only objection to Brodle is that he is not n student ut P. M. A. The lads of the Hudson Hiver League have yet to learn that It Is far better In the lone run to play only school boys. Bargent. who will pltol) this year, hud practtco last spring as substitute pitcher on the ilrnt ntno. ltogers. an old player, will envor left Hold. Km nit Itunken, who played third base and loft lldd on the eocond team, is a promising candidato for the regular nine. In track ntliletlcs the Feeksklll lads mannge to get along. Among the sprinters nre Par ker, Bohonblom, Underwood, and Allen. It Is claimed that Underwood is a professional, but the claim is unsupported. Not long ago on a very poor track underwood made the hundred In 10 4-6 seconds, tichonblnm at tho enmo tlmo completod tho distance in 11 1-5 seconds. The academy has n quartot of extra good hurdlers Thoy aro Orahood, Docker. Lesin Bky, nnd Wltltnoy. Wright is one of tho sprint ers who will be made by dnveloptnonr. Ho has a good future before him. Hyde, Parker, and Oakley form a strong trio tn the longor clashes. Parker can do tho 300-yflrd dash In H3 secords. M. L. Decker must receive mention as the champion baseball throwor of tho Peeks kill Academy. Ho doosn't have to try vory hard to make a record of HOD feet B Indies.
