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
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

After a week's absence the Senators will
play again at National Park this afternoon.
Tho fast flying Orioles will be the opposing
team. 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.
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.
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

change their positions, hut in percentage
there id a difference. The Bostons have
dropped clown from 641 to 630; the Cleve
Iands from 590 to 580, while tho Chicagos
wont up from 553 to 560.
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.

I have more than exceeded my expecta

The harder you hit them the better they

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
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
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.

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
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
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.
She lett the company some time later
and has not lived with her husband since.
At the time of their separation Mr. and
Mrs. Corbett came to an amicable under
standing. He deeded the handsome Eighty
eighth street residence to her and agreed
to pay her $100 a week. This agreement
he has kept faithfully.
