NEW YORK, Doc. 12.?? fight between
Jeffries and Corbctt at the World's Fnlr
In St. Louis next year may prove u. big
drawing card, but I doubt If It would
create as much Interest us a bout be?
tween Fllzslmmons and Cr;irbctt. No?
body, not oven Corbott, bolloves ho boa
uny chance whatever with tho champion.
It would ?Imply bo an exhibition and
would draw a? such.
With tho ancient Cornlshman facing
Gentlomun Jim, however, Iho elements
of a hard light would bo present.
Fltz has whipped Corbctt once and then
there are a whole lot of people who be?
lieve ho can do It again, whether his
hands are. In first-class condition or not.
Corbctt announces ho will not fight Fltz
but will fight JcffrloH. Perhaps he shows
good sense In this. Ho can loso nothing
by being whipped again by Jeffries, while
? defeat at the hands of Fitzslmmona
would definitely put him out of business
ns a fighting man.
Perhaps the discovery by a Boston doe
tor that Jeffrles's left nrm Is crooked
has hod something to do with Corbett's
willingness to light the big fellow again.

refused, the master of the vessel claim?
ing that the shipping articles which the
seaman signed provide that no money
is to be advanced during tho voyage.
The seaman goes ashoro without a dollar
In his pocket; ho falls in with runners
of boarding houses and shipping masters,
by whom he Is taken caro qf by being
provided with liquor and eatables. In
many cases the seaman gets intoxicated
o.nd docs not return to his vessel, and,
at tho expiration of the forty-eight hours
from the time his permission to go ashore
ceases, the master promptly reports him
a deserter. t V. . ? ':
Causes for Tfiis^Condition.
"The vessel remains In port discharging
and receiving cargo for about two months,
and as tho seaman has little or nothing
tc do?the cargo all being discharged hy
stevedores?by the seaman deserting the
master or ship saves tho wages, and I
never knew of a master who worried
about a deserted seaman. Tho shipping
master takes hold of the deserter and
soon finds another vessel for him' (not
an American vossel) and collects one
month's allotment for board duo him by
tho seaman. The ship saves from two
to three months' wages by the seaman
deserUng. Tho shipping articles further
pr?vido that these seamen ship for from
twelve to eighteen calendar months, and
the first timo they learn they can draw
no wages is when they ask the master
for money when tho vessel is in port, and
It is hardly to bo expected that they will
stand by thefr ships when they can be
kept out of their wages fot twolvo to
"Another reason why seamen desert
is on account of tho following words also
being stamped on the shipping articles:
'The crew aro to handlo all cargoes and
ballast required." Of this the fioamen
are Ignorant until they nro put to work
by tho stevedore, who pays tho ship $1
a' day for every seaman who assists in
discharging the ship, and ns soon as
the seamen are aware of It desertion
"Another cause of desertion Is the fol?
lowing: As soon as a vessel Is towed Into
the port, and before she gets to her
discharging berth, boarding house keep
ors and runners board tho vessol in
boats and mix among tho crow, without
any objection from tho master of the
vessel, and ns a rule tho soamen desert
tho vessel ns soon as sho Is moorod,
