Former's Men Will Meet Before the
Yosemite Club of San Francisco the
Iiast Week in May for a Purse of
$25,000Eddie Graney Will Be the
Yew York Sun Speoial Service.
New York, March 1.Jack Munroe
and Jim Jeffries were matched yes
terday to fight twenty rounds for the
championship of the world. They
will meet in San Francisco in the last
week of May for a purse of $25,000, of
which 65 per cent will go to the win
ner and 35 per cent to the loser.
Neither the (champion nor the Butte
miner was present at the meeting at
Which the details were arranged. Jim
Kennedy, representing the Yosemite
athletic club of San Francisco, first
offered $20,000, but soon raised the
inducement to $25,000. N The men will
wear 5-ounce gloves. Soft bandages
will be worn around the knuckles.
Billy Delaney, on behaif of Jeffries,
insisted upon a forfeit of $5,000 a side,
to be deposited with Harry Corbett
Immediately. This will be done.
When the question of referee came
Up several names were suggested by
Delaney, among them Graney, Ed
Smith, Phil Wand and Jack Welch.
Munroe's manager chose Graney.
"I have no doubt they are all good
men," he said, but Graney 1 know is
a cocking good referee. I have seen
htm officiate in the matches that
'Young Corbett' has had on the coast,
and know that he is a capable, fair,
honest man. He will suit me."
Delaney accepted him without hesi
The question then came tegardmg
other fights for Jeffries and] Munroe,
and it was agreed that neither man
should fight between now and the date
set for their match.
The Yosemite Athletic club will
aoon announce the date of the con
test. Munroe will soon start west,
giving exhibitions. Champion Jeffries
will begin training on the coast very
soon, for he is high in flesh.
CORBETT AN EASY WINNER
Referee Awards Him Decision in the
San Francisco. March 1.Champion
Featherweight Young Corbett had no
difficulty in retaining his laurels last
He defeated Dave Sullivan of New
York In the eleventh round of a sched
uled twenty-round contest.
Corbett left the ring without a
mark^ while on the other hand Sulli
van received a terrible beating and
only the action of Referee Graney in
stopping the contest to save the New
Yorker from a knockout.
Sullivan put up a game fight, and,
while he was outboxed, outfought and
outgeneraled, he gave the champion
cause for worry in one round. Aside
from Sullivan's extraordinary game
ness, the contest never was in doubt.
Corbett held his man safe during all
stages of the contest, and it was but
a question of time when Sullivan
would have to quit.
The fourth round nearly saw the
end of the fight and only by taking
the full count at four different times
did Sullivan manage to pull thru. The
main feature of the fight was the great
amount of infighting.
Jimmy Britt was an interested spec
tator at the ringside. The general
opinion of the sporting element which
has seen both men in action is that
Corbett will be the favorite in the bet
ting, and that Britt, while giving him
a good fight, will not be the winner.
Sullivan made the weight much
easier than Corbett, who is a larger
man. Tho fighting at 130 pounds,
Corbett had to Indulge in the "drying
out" process yesterday, which is weak
ening to some extent. The betting
ranged from 3 to 1 to 2 to 1 in favor

BASKET BAIL TOURNAMENT
AT THE UNIVERSITY ARMORY.
The freshmen won the interclass
girls' basket ball tournament at the
university armory last night after a
hard struggle. The freshmen easily
defeated the sophomores in the first
contest by a score of 15 to 6. The
freshmen had a marked advantage in
height, which enabled them to keep
the ball away from their shorter op
In the junior-senior game the jun
iors won by the close score of 12 to
9. The teams were evenly matched,
and some high-class work character
ized the match. The final contest,
between the freshmen and juniors, waft
exciting. In the first half the excel
lent guarding of the freshies prevent
ed the juniors from making a single
field goal. The half ended with the
score 9 to 1 in favor of '07. In the
second half the juniors played des
perately and pulled up nearly even
with the freshmen, but the latter team
rallied, and the game finished with the
score 16 to 10 in favor of the fresh
men, who thus win the varsity cham

Special to The Journal.
Grand Forks, March 1.The report
from Duluth that L. Van Praagh,
manager of the Duluth team of the
Northern league, will withdraw from
the Northern league and form a new
circuit with a number of Michigan
and Wisconsin towns, is not taken se
riously by the enthusiasts and league
officials here. It is well known that
Van Praagh has not been entirely sat
isfied, but it was not thought that he
would go to the extent of withdraw
ing from the league.
President Laxdai at once announced
that the Northern league would have
teams in both Duluth and Superior.
It is not believed that franchises in
either of the cities will go begging,
neither is it believed that Manager
Van Praagh will find that outlaw base
ball is a paying proposition.
Manager E. C. Cooper of the Grand
Forks team announces that fifteen
men have been signed for the 1904
season, and probably one more an
will be here at the opening of the sea

ers this year will be new men, the

Makin a Taffeta
Two representatives from the York Man
ufacturing Co. will be here to explain
the working of the loom, and the'merits
of the silk.
Silk weaving, a most interesting process to
anyone interested in silk fabrics, shows'
perfection of weaving by a combination.
Using skilled labor and machine almost en
dowed with human intelligence, this com
bination using. 400 perfectly pure, strong
threads to the inch of warp surface, also a
double thread to the filling, produces a re
liable, long-wearing and lasting lustre silk.
This wonderful loom
the Kansas City team in the Western
league, will play third base. Four
pitchers have been signed and an as
sociation man is likely to be added
before the lists are finally closed.
Will McNeil, this year's manager
of the Crookston team, is getting con
tracts by every mail, and he figures
that Crookston will begin the season
with the fastest team that has ever
represented that town. Breyette, Don
Cameron, Hoffmeister, Carlyle, Ed
wards and Schulte of last year's team
will play at Crookston.
The annual schedule meeting of the
American league was held at New
York yesterday. After a four-hour
session, during which only routine
business was transacted, the meeting
adjourned for the day.
President Johnson said that he ex
pected that the schedule committee of
the American and National leagues
would meet in joint session to com
pare schedules as to conflicting dates.
Pitcher Reisling will not have his
name stricken from Toledo's reserve
list as he requests. This was decided
yesterday by the national commission,
which based its decree on the fact that
the exempt clause in Reisling's Toledo
contract was written by himself with
out the club's consent or knowledge,
also that he had accepted Toledo's
terms for the coming year.
President Laxdai has called a
meeting of the Northern ball league
for March 12 at Duluth.
