ItlTERIlATIOIIAL II! BAD PLIGHT MAY JUMP TO FEDERALS New Tork, Feb. 12. Many of , th luto owners . of ,-vthe International lbetgue are highly Incensed because of the action of -the National league in refusing the request to locate one of their clubs in the Bronx. - It was stat ed yesterday, that some of them are so mad -that, they have made, threats to Jump from" organized baseball. President Edward G. -Barrow .ndi-r culed - this ; idea yesterday - and said : 'There is -not a chance in the world or pur abandoning organized ball as. far as I .am concerned.; Why, ' I , would rather go , out of business than do that." ", So it Is" very , certain that if Barrow has his way the. league will re main loyal even in its adversity. He admitted, however, that he could not speak for all the clubs owners. i . The club- owners have had confidence since last, fall, when i they made their financial plight "known , to the major leagues,' that some aid would be forth-, coming. President Barrow and the club owners - firmly believe that by transferring a club to the, Bronx the league would" be able to weather its present critical stage. ;- These owners. whoi staked much on this move, are now i ready to take almost- any action to avoid a repetition of last year's experience.-; . -- ' There was nothing new in the situa tion yesterday and no definite action concerning - the International ' league's affairs will ..be taken until the. meeting off. the league here: next Monday; i, It was stated that among the Na tional - league club owners several of them favored the move.

The Deaf 'Un had only recently returned .from America, wherf? he had defeated Sam OTRourke in New Orleans and Tom O'Connell in New Tork. Dissipation had weaken ed the champion, and Bendigo, who had shown himself a first class, fight ing man, was the favorite with a ma jority of the 10,000 fans who gathered at the ringside. Burke's lack of con dition was soon manifest, and his knowledge of ringcraft, of which he had been a master,' seemed to have deserted him. He fought bravely, but by the 6th round" he was ao-far gone that he had to be ' given brandy. In the 10th Burke butted Bendy with his head, and as: that had been made foul by the new rules, Bendigo was given the decision. Poor old -Burke fought a few more times, - but soon died of consumption. - 1 - 1885 Young Joseph.
