To Thump the Ancient Champion
Hard Would Be Murder—Will
Box for Points
NEW YORK, June 25.—When ques
tioned by a Journal-Advertiser reporter
concerning John L. Sullivan's challenge
Robert Fitzsimmons said: "Yes, I saw
John's challenge in the Journal, and
It really makes me feel merry. Ha, ha!
John L. Sullivan back ln the ring again
and says he means It! Sometimes I feel
sorry for John. Don't he understand
that there is no possible show In the
world for him to win a light with a man
like me? Perhaps I should not say that,
however, because he Is evidently sincere
In what he Imagines he can do. And
then, again, he Is over there training
with Billy Muldoon, and if any man
alive can put him in condition to make
a fight, Muldoon Is the man. He knows
more about physical development and
training than any other man living and
he may be able to do wonders with John.
"I will accept the challenge to this
extent:. First of all, It is r.ot to be a fin
ish fight, so far as lam concerned. Do
you think I want to jeopardize my liber
ty by hitting John' L. Sullivan hard
enough to knock him out? He would
simply drop dead. To fight a finish fight
with Sullivan would be committing
manslaughter and I do not take a fancy
to It. I will go further and give him a
chance that no other pugilist has ever
had, and if it is not the squarest proposi
tion you ever heard, then suggest some
thing else that is and I will agree to it.
First of all, I will not fight him to a fin
ish, but better still, be can fight me to a
finish If he can do it ln a four or six
round go. I will spar for points and treat
him nicely, while he can fight for a
knockout. I will positively agree to let
him try just as hard as he can to drop
me In that time and as an additional as
surance to John that nothing disastrous
will happen to him I merely intend to
keep away from his smashes and show
him that I can hit him at will."
NEW YORK, June 25.—Tonight Mar
tin Julian, manager of Bob Fitzsim
mons, made a proposition to Frank Dunn
of Boston, manager of John L. Sullivan,
which was accepted. The proposition is
that John L. Sullivan and Fitzsimmons
meet at Ambrose park, Brooklyn, on
the afternoon of July sth, rain or shine,
for four or six rounds. If Sullivan'?
sparring shall be deemed by the public
and sporting writers creditable and in
dicative of his ability to enter the ring
for a finish contest, terms and condi
tions for such a match may be arranged
immediately thereafter. Sullivan will
get a share of the gate receipts.
In accepting the proposition Mr. Dunn
simply said that, though the time was
short, Julian had the call in acting for
the holder of the championship and Sul
livan would be in the ring at the ap
pointed hour.
DENVER, Col., June 25.—A special to
tho Rooky Mountain Neva from Cripple

best of the contest all the way through.
BOSTON, June 25.—Ex-Champion J.
J. Corbett was seen tonight regarding
the statement that he and Charley
Mitchell would be matched to a finish
fight for a purse of $15,000 offered by Dan
Stuart. Corbett said: "I rather think
that the experience of this same Mitchell
at Jacksonville should prove conclusive
ly that he has seen- his best days as a
pugilist and should remain in retire
ment. I will meet no man unless It is
for the championship of the world, and
the only man from whom I can recover
that title will be Fitzsimmons or the
man who conquers him, if such a thing
should come to pass."

The Life of the Commander of the
British Army Hearing an End
Lord Wolseley is not likely to retain
for any length of time his position of
commandier-ln-chlef of the British army,
for, although, after being conllned to his
house for a number of week's, he has at
length returned to duty at the branch of
the war department known as the
Horse Guards, yet It Is no longer any se
cret that he Is afflicted with cancer ot
uhe stomach, which lain a v*ry advanced
state. Nothing else is talked about at
the so-called "service" clubs iro and
around Pall Mall, St. James and, Picca
dilly, and although the field marshal has
more enemies than friends, his popu
larity being restricted to what is known
as "his gang," yet regret) is expressed on
all sides.
It Is asserted that the malady has
reached a point which enables the doc
tors to declare that while his life may
be prolonged, until the. end of the year,
he must not look for much extension be
yond that, while it Is quite possible that
he may be carried oft long before the
season is over. In that event it is his
only daughter Frances, who, by virtue
of the terms of the patent of his peerage,
will become Viscountess Wolseley in her
own right.—Chicago Record.
