GENERAL BOXING GOSSIP Dark OutfooK for the Fistic Fratern ity in New York State. .MniiRger Kernan Closes His Uoute. Eureka Club Will Pull Off Some Good Contents In Near Future. The outlook for the boxing fraternity in New York is certainly not of the brightest. For the present, at least, no contests will be held at Coney Island. It is doubtful if this move on the inrt of the reformers trill be productive of the good desired as the stoppage of the scientific bouts held under the supervision of reputable associations only selves to bring about the vicious pri vate contests. Plans are now on root to pull off thellall Choynski battle, which "was to have beun held at the Seaside Athletic Club last Monday night, in private. Warren Lewis is behind the project and if it is carried into etfect a viciiws battle will hkelj be the result. The fights that have been pulled off up the Hudson wheu the wave of reform lias swept over the metropolis have nearly all been of the bloody order. Too often have they ended in a free-for-all fight that wouldnevcrhavetakcuplaceinaclubbouse. Now that Manager Kernan has closed niE nightly boxing exhibitions there will be a falling off iu the interest taken in the local boxers unless the Eureka Club steps into the breach and puts on some attrac tions. At their re-opeuing fight when they had Howard Watson and Jack McCann on, the sporting fraternity did nor offer them the uupport necessary to make a success of bucb exhibitions. It was a lirsl night, Lowever, and the first-dabs contest that look place should prove to the locids that really good bouts can be pulled off buccessfully. If the man Hgers of the Eureka should take another try there is no doubt but what they would this time draw a good house. The next bout to be pulled off in this vicinity will be the McMillan-Raedy con test, and as both men will train faithfully it should lie a good go. The bout is sched uled for Augufat 6. If Tony Stannard could be induced to bring McCann down here again and have nun weigh in at 128 or 130 pounds, How ard Wilson would give him the fight of his bfe. The great amount of weight that the local lad gave him when they last met counted strongly in McCann's favor. The mibtak" that was made was In not having a. forfeit posted for weight. Another good drawing card that Match makerFoutaiue might bear in mind would be a finish right, between Chappie James and Young Savie. They fill the house every time the y meet and there is probably more Epculation over the relative merits of the two boys than any two local men. The preparations for the benefit lor John Xi. Sullivan, at Madison Square Garden, New York city, next Thursday night, are progressing finely, and Manager Wakely Is confident it will be the greatest -affair of the kind ever projected. Sullivan's limy of friends were alwajs ready to turn cat to see him on the slightest provocation, but now that he needs Uiei r presence and as sistance, a jam is assured. Talking of the coming battle between fkirbetl and Fitzsimmons, "Billy" Dc feiiey, who iias trained the champion for til his fights, said yesterday. "Jim will win. and wJu eabily. I think tlio fight will be short and sweet." "Joe" Conroy, of Astoria, and Frank Epark, of Jersey City, have signed arti- cles to fight to a finish in private with skin tight gloves for a purso of $250. The con test 16 heduled to take place within one hundred miles of New York city the latter parlof -this month. In view of the fact that there is no law raiust glove fighting in the State of Texas, a movement is on foot to persuade Gov. Culberson to call an extra session of the legislature and declare prize fighting Ille gal. The Christian Endeavor Society haB the matter in charge, and is now at work in the different counties of the State pre paring a petition to too governor -with, this end in view.

It was these bird-named ball tosscrs who defeated the home team en Saturday in the Monumental City. Although the hoodoo was with tho Wash ington last Monday when Anson's Colts beat them out, there may be a mascot secreted somewhere in the grounds who will favor the Senators in a way which will bring victory over Hanlon's young hustlers. It will bo their first appearance in this city and many a crank will come from Balti more to root for their favorite club. Then, too, the local rooters will be out in force, and as they have had a rest of a week there is no telling how much noise they will make if they got a good chance to yell. NEW MEN HERE. Carey, the Baltimore first baseman, will be seen for the first time in Washington, and Kid Gleason will probably cover third. Jennings, who has been putting up phe nomenal ball, will show how he does his work, while the hard-hitting Keeler will attempt to increase his batting average. And for the Senators. They are still in good form, so to speak. Just a trifle weak in the box at present. Mr. Schmelz may make an effort to strengthen up. If he only does, their many admirers will have a glorious opportunity to root, root, root. The Senators are still lodged In tenth place with a percentage of 426 as against 463 points last Monday morning. Dur ing the week they lost two games to Chi cago, two to New York, and one to Balti more, and won one from New York. While they played fair ball in each game they lost, defeat came by spurts of stick work by tho opposing teams, coupled with that most unwelcome companion, hard luck. But there is some satisfaction that there are others who not only suffered defeat, but were hustled down the ladder of pen nant fame. NEAREST TO THE SENATORS. The Senators' nearest rival now is the great hitting Quakers, who, one week ago, were iu seventh place, with 524 points, and who are now ninth with a percentage of onlv four points less. The St. Louis made no change in position, while in per centage, not including yesterday's games, there is a difference of only six points to the bad. One week ago the Washingtons were close upon the heels of Foutz's Bridegrooms, who were then only thirty-seven points away, and ninth in the race. Now they are in sixth place, witli a percentage of 542. Boston, Cleveland and Chicago did not THE NEW irrz?

The Pirates dislodged the Orioles from second, and aro now after the Beaneaters with a vengeance, being only tliirty-six points behind them. A week ago they had a percentage of 600, and they start the week with 620 points to their credit. Buck Ewlng's Reds were nicely located in sixth place, but they have had a hard week of it, and with ycbterday's defeat by the Browns are now in eighth place tie with the Philadelphias. Tho Giants have bettered their position and galmd eighteen points in percentage, and Gotham cranks have a thing or two"to feel elated. Tho Orioles, while playing good nnd fast ball, fell off in percentage as well as losing the socond place on the ladder. The poor, disconsolate Colonels.

Cleveland 1b puttinc up a remarkable game just now, and like Boston, is booked fo- the finish. New York. Boston and Flttsburg are all after George Mahnuey, the noted George town College pitcher. St. Louis Miller Is laid up with a broken finger. Hugh Jennings Is having more assists than any man playing ball, showing that be is covering ground. Cartwright has more stolen bases to his credit than any member of the Washington club. The harder you hit them the better they suit Glasscock. It is the blow bunt that Jack is weak on. Capt. Tebeau has had his share of hard luck this season, but he will not give up hope of landing that prize. Pitcher Foreman is one of the claimants who are suing to recover Druid Hill Park from the city of Baltimore. It looks queer to see Jakey Stenzcl so far clown in the list of heavy hitters. He has not been well this year. To date tho Cincinnati team sizes up as the weakest hitting team in the league. No wonder they have been dropping. Arthur ClarkBon says he considers himself very lucky to get away from St. Louis to join such a good club as Baltimore. Outfielder Clark, of Louisville, is one of the sprinters of his profession. He gets down to first about as fast as any of them. Pitcher Killen. of Pittsburg, went home in advance of the leam, as his ankle is in bad shape from tho spiking received in New York. TomParrott says he'll do no more cycling during the active season. He believes the risk of injury is too great for a ball player to take. Not for some years has George Smith, the German nobleman who plays short field for Cincinnati, hit the ball as he has done this season. Ewing says he believes that Clarkson. under Hanlon's management, will be one of the first-class pitchers of the league in side of a year. Pitcher Hawke, who refused to play with Baltimore because the club would not increase his salary, is running a saloon at Wilmington, Del. It has been a long time since Anson has been able to swell out his chest with pride, and he is making the most of his present opportunity. According to the averages most of Anson's men are on speaking terms with the ball in fact, to date the Chicago team is lead ing the League in batting. When it comes to fielding, hitting, base running, nnd the sand to make an uphill fight, where can von excel the trio that roams around the Boston outfield. There is no longer any evidence of inter nal dissensions iu the Baltimore team. If they existed at all the storm and stress of the pennnut fight has smothered them. What do you think of this? Anson says he does not see how the Boston Club is superior to his colts in any respect, batting, lieldliig, base running, or head work. Pitcher Griffith, of Chicago, is one of those "don't step on the tail of me coat" sort of important little chaps. In some of his movements lie resembles John Clark son. "Dad" Clarke Is doing very good pitch ing for New York. We had an idea that his time for regular duty would come sooner or later, and it came sooner even than ex pected. Baltimore enthusiasts are still sighing for McMahon. He still practices before every game and appears to be all right, but he is afraid to go into a game and let himself out. That the West has come to a realizing sensor of its dangerous position is shown by the fact that Chicago is in the market for the purchase of players Instead of sale as heretofore. President Frcedman has determined to spare no expense in strengthening the New Yorks at once. He has two agents on the road now looking over young players in the minor leagues. The Baltimore Club usually picks out a pitcher with a good record in the League. This is a safer play than picking up green material from the minor leagues, and Hanlon knows it. "President Frank Robiion, of the Cleve land Cltib, is home from the East, and tells Cleveland folks that uo money will buy any Cleveland players; that there is absolutely no price on any player in the team, and that Cleveland is after the peunanttliis year. The batter's eye is like the tides of the seas in its variableness. For a day, or perhaps several of them, It can gitage nothing rigiit, but then all of a sudden things change completely, and it looks as if the man couldn't miss a ball if he was paid to do it. The story is going the rounds that Jouett Meekin can no longer be relied upon, as a regular pitcher for the New Yorks. There Is a sneaking suspicion that Meekin was &&&& wmM5srnm53ma 3KEEMllss250i pitching under a strain all of last season, and that it is telling on him this year. The New York officials are worrying more about George Davis' lame arm than the injuries of Doyle, Meekin, and Rusie. Davis cannot even brush his hair without reeling a severe pain in his shoulder; and as for throwing a ball, he might just as well use his lert arm. The New York Club offers $10,000 for any two good players in the League. But the conditions are such that no club dares risk the acceptance of the rich offer while Hie playing season exists. Next fall, how vver, there will, without doubt, be some more valuable additions made to the Giants. Frank Bonner, Charley Esper, and George Hemming have been rated as the Littlo lillee. and The Laird of the Orioles. There was no Trilby in thecast, and theonly thing they rushed was the quiet growler. The Baltimore fans indorsed the release of Bon ner, and would not go across the street to kiss Esper good-by. Ewing suggests a good scheme for the selection of an umpire when the regular man does not show up. Instead of having two players from the two teams officiate, which often results in trouble, Buck would have one of the home players act as umpire, the man to be selected by the captain or the visiting team. Anson has no less than 3,000 wagered on the showing of the Chicagos in this year's race, most of it being on the strength of his team beating out the New Yorks, though he has also bet that they will finish ahead of Cleveland and Cincinnati, and even one of his bets is that Chicago will be higher up at the finish than Boston.

Get your Cabinet Plioto F"reo SE51S3&H&g MRS. CORBETT HAS SUED Wants Absolute Divorce from Gentle man Jim, Prize Fighter. Mysterious Co-res.pondent in the Case Corbett Already- Faylm? Alimony for a Separation. New York, June 23. Lawyer Abraham Hummel, of Howe &. Hummel, was yester day shown a dupctch from Yankton, S. Dak., stating that a handsome biondo woman, giving the same of Mrs. Lake, had applied to tbe courts for a divorce, but on learning that she woekl be obliged to have a six months residence there ha J left, declaring that she would not wait that long. It was stated in the dknoteh that tlw wom.an was believed to be Mrs. Corbett, wife of James J. Corbett, the pugilist. Mrs. Corbett's maiden name was Lake. "The woman," said Mr. Hummel, "was positively not Mrs. Corbett. I have been in conference with Mrs. Corbett almost daily for the past two weeks. She is living at her home, at No. 146 West Eighty eighth street, with her father. She has no desire to institute any divorce proeeed ings in South Dakota or any Territory, or in fact in any place other than within the jurisdiction of the New York conns." It was learned that the suit for absolute divorce against Corbett had already been begun and that he has filed an answer to the charges. The papers in the ease were served on Corbett in Asbury Park two weeks ago, and a week later he fHed Ins answer. The next step in the proceedings wHl probably be taken this week, wlien appli cation will be made in either the common pleas or superior court for alHaoay and counsel fees, and Mrs. Corbett will ask to have the case placed on theealendar. It will then be decided whether the ease shall be tried in court or placed in the hands of a referee to take testimony. In the latter event the case will be conducted privately. Strenuous efforts, it is said, will be made on both sides to keep the narao of the co-respondent secret. It was during the early part of Corbett's last season as a theatrical star that the separation between him awl his "wife e curred. When the company started on the road in the beginning of the season with "Gentleman Jack" Mrs. Corbett started with them.
