tho Proposition of Jluklng a Match
Witli Him.
Baltimore, April 28. Mr. Daniel A. Stu
art, who brought off the fight between
Fltzsimmoni and Malier, arrixed In Balti
more last night, bringing the articles ot
agreement for a fight between James J.
Corbett and Robert Fltzsimmons. The con
tract had been signed by William A. Brady
for Corbett.
The paper was submitted to Fltzsimmons
and his manager, Martin Julian, in a parlor
at the Carrolltou Hotel late last night.
Mr. Julian said. "I want first to announce
thatMr.btunrlhaskcplcxerj promiseinade
to us, aud that what I sliall say cannot lu
any nay reflect upon him.
"To Mr. Stuart I rcieat the determina
tion which we haxe already reached. We
shall not sign these articles of agreement
until Corbett shall haxe met and defeated
one strong, healthy, young pugilist, thus
demonstrating bis fitness to meet Fitzsiui
mons, thcprcsentbolderofthecbampionshlp
"He must meet Maher, Slaxln, Hall,
Choynskl, "Btnier IM" Smith or Goddard
or any man of equal youth, health aud
stamina, to show that be can withstand the
battle which Fltzsimmons bebexes himself
able to give.
"We ask that he meet one man, whereas
'he Insisted that Fltzsimmons should meet
four or fixe. Fltzsimmons chased Corbett
for three years about the countrj asking
for a meeting."
Here Fitzsimmons put In, "Yes, five
Julian responded: "Well, we'll say three
years that there ma j tie no mistake. Now,
lo show that we do not want to avoid a
fight or to lock up in a trunk the title
which Fitzsimmons has won, let us make
dear our position:
"Fitzsinvmons will makea match xvithanj
white man living. He xvill gtxc anjbody a
chance to earn the championship title ex
cept Corbett. and will meet Corbett Just so
soon as Corliettshall haxe met and defeated
one ot the men we have. named, or any
other man of similar now crs. all fake fights
and lay-downs barred, or course."
Mr. Stuart here put In: "But suppose
Corbett reruses?"
Julian answered: "Then, Fltzsimmons
will nexcr meet him."
Fltzsimmons here Interjected: "Don't
say 'nexcr.' I shall get at him surely some
time. He Is the man I have long been after,
but I haxe suffered so much at his bands
and' he has made such hard conditions that
I glory in a position where I can make
conditions which he must fulfill."
Fitzsimmons was lnterx-iewed before the
meeting at the Carrollton Hotel, and said:
"I am thirty-four years or age. but I was

Reconciliation Between the Two
Colleges Practically Assured.
A Friendly Fee-line; In Being FoMered
uud The-y May .Meet on tho Foot
bull Field TUIh Year.
The athletic relations between Yale and
Universttj- of Pennsylxanla are seemingly
becoming more friendly exery day. and
from present indications it is not at all
improbable that a resumption or athletic
contests between these txxo unlxcrsities
will be an event or the near ruture. The
first exidences or a return or rriendly feel
ings between these txvo colleges were
exinced by Pennsylvania when she advo
cated the admission ot Yale into the quad
ripartite, race. Following closely on this.
Chairman Townsend ot Pennsjlxauia'6 base
ball committee, announced that he had
scheduled a game or baseball between the
Yale laxv school team and tho 'x-arslty
freshman team, to be played on Franklin
Field. This was another straxv that Indi
cated the direction in which the xvlnd was
blowing. Shortly after this announcement
an errort xvas made to arrange for a rrcsh
man boat race between the Blue and tho Red j
and Blue, wmen xxas not successiui. uow
exer.adxicescmanatingfromNew Haven at
that time stated that "there is unixersal re
gret expressed afYale that the willingness
of Pennsylxanlatoarrangearreshman con
test with Yale xvas not known earlier.
The reeling or Yale ror the Unixersity of
Pennsjlxania has grown very rriendly this
spring, owing to the assurances gix en Yale
of supiwrtif the blue would enter the four
cornered race."
Some little time after this came Yale's
acceptance of Penn's Invitation to compete
In the relay races on April 25. The Yale
track management's decision in accepting
this Inxilation to enter the races was
body, which reallj was the deciding factor
and was regarded at Yale as the forerunner
of some tort rf agreement In other contests.
Accompanying Yale's acceptance It- was
announced that Walter Camp, Yale's noted
rootball authority, would lecture on the
game to the Pennsylvania students at
Houston Hall on the evening or the relay
races. Mr. Camp came and his-talk was
quitc complimentary to Pennsjlvania's
rootball team. All of these Instances are
strong evidences of the friendly feeling
that has been engendered between the '
Quaker Institution and the sons of Old Ell.
At the last meeting of thefoothall con
ference, when the revised rules were
formally agreed upon by the committee,
this feeling wa again in evidence. While
Harvard and Pennsylvania were firm In
their sTnnd for their rights against Pnncc
tonandYalc.stlll the readiness bothshowed
to compromise en disputed points plainly
Indicated their desire to avoid any un
pleasant feeling.
As the rootlwll situation now stards.
Yale's attitude toward Fcimsjivania is
very likely to result in the arranging of a
contest on the gridiron Held between these
two unixersitles ror next rait. At present
Yale's p rospects ror more than one big game
next rail-that with Princeton are very
small. She and Harvard seem to be ns far
aparL as cxer In regard to the resumption
of their athletic relations, while Cornell
has persistently refused to meet the Blue
on the football field rorsex-cral jears. The
Blue's only recourse now seems to be to
renew her rootball contests with Pennsjl
vanla. which the Quaker institution would
undoubtedly agree to provldingsatismctory
arrangements could be made. Tho proba
bility that a rootball game between Yale
and Pennsjlxania will be arranged forncet
rail Is considerably strengthened by t he
present difrerences existing between Har
vard and the Quakers as to the eligibility
rules governing the plajers.
Pennsjlxania has shown a disposition to
accede to any measures suggested by Har
vard that were within reason, hut by her
election of Williams as captain of the team
for this jcar it is evident that she is deter
mined to play both him and Brooke, the two
plaj-crs Harxard has objection to on the
ground that they have played their four
jear limit.
While it certain that Pennsylvania will
not make any arrangements with the New
Haven college that would seriously Inter
fere or connict with the playing of a gamo
with narvard, if suclr a game isjinally and
definitely settled upon. It is equally certain
that hi the event of the Crimson refusing
to meet Pennsylvania on the football
field next fall that Quakers would gladlv
avall themselves of the opportunity of
arranging a game with the Blue, as Pcnn
sjlvanla. without a game with Yale, would
then be In the same position as Yale, with
only one big game, that arranged with Cor
nell. The scheduling of a came between
Pennsylvania and Yale would give each
