JACK DEMPSEY PROVE!
MOST ELUSIVE !
AGE IN THE
(Preston News SorVice.)
New York City.. Sept. 22.?It is
amazing will* the audacity with which
Jack Dempscy continues* his game ot
stalling in order to dodge meeting
worthy opponents. The public is rapiu
iy growing tired of tli?s sort of con-,
tluet on tho part of the t.itlo holder
and sport writers in all quarters of
the country and beginning to say so.

opinion among t'ho fair iniiulcd writers
in tiio lurgc white dailies through
out (lie country Harry J. Boyle, snorting
editor of (lie Pittsburgh Chronicle
Tolegraph has the following to say ui?
dor tho capt,ion of "'Dompsey's Main
Rivals are Mipko and Wills:"
"Prospective exponents for Denipsy
aro Wills, Misko, Orel), Cnrpentier,1
Plrpa, Bronan, Williard, Jack Jolui.son
and Beckett, and according to Fren
Keats, the eastern sharp, thoy rank in
somothing like that order. Tho imm
Dempaey shows tho least dosire to
mcjct is Willii who ranks first. Tho
man Dempscy lias expended the most
energy is chasing after is Brenan, who
ranks down near the bottom of the de

helpless contender, also comes in for
a great (leal of attention from the
champion as does Firpo, a novice, and
Beckett, worso than a novice. As a mat
ter of fact, Dempsey figures to beat(
them nil, including Wi,ll$, but it rath-j
or strange that ho lias so little to say!
about the men the public would have
him meet, and is so anxious to -tackle
thoso who could not force him to get)
up a good sweat. It is true that Demp j
sey had been forced to talk of a Wills
match a great deal of late, but he has J
match onn crtga etaoin slirdlu cmfwy
never shown any real pleasuro in the'
prospect, even though the fight is like!
ly to net lijm a half million. Foi j
months he tried his hardest to discour,
age talk of that match. Ho threw;
every possible obstacle in ll>e way, at
the same time doing his best to appear
willing. As a last rosort he demanded
a guaranty of $500,000 and the mofney
posted in advance.
Dom>psoy should beat Wills because
the champion is a much bettor boxer,
is a shorter, foster and more accurate)
hitter and can stand up under more
punishment. All Wills lias shown u'
great strength and a wild wallop. lie
is never sure of hitting anything un
til ho gets hold with one hand so that
his victim cannot move out of the way.
As Wills is best of the Negroes, so
Miske is best of the whiles. It would
not bo fair to roast Dempsey for pass
ing up u man he knocked out so es>i,ly
the last timo they met. On the face nf
things Dempsey deserves credit for
loaving the man frcjnu St. Paul alone.
Yet it is a well-known fact that Miske
is the best of tho white contenders. It
nl*o is a fact that toe twice went the
full distance with Dempsiey and that.
Ive was a rick man at tho timo Dempsey
knocked him out. Today Miske is
a far better figlitor than ho wns when
he stood Dempsey off in a 10 and a six
Yet Dempsey has announced that ho
is going to Europe to find action. Why
does ho run away from American
shores where fro can got nil the action
he wants. Some arc so hold as to say
that Dempsey knows what ho would ho
taking to great, a chance at looking
the title if he went (into the ring wTit.li'
either Will's or Miskc and therefore ho
does not desire any real American not
