READY FORjTHE RING.
Sullivan and Kilrain Finish ing Up Training- for Their Mill Next Week. . _ The Former Eecoming Very Popular With the People -.-.. of Eelfast, N. Y. Charlie Mitchell Confident the Baltimore Man Will Come Off Winner. - Sullivan's Friends, However, Are Leg-ion, and He Will Be Heavily Backed. New York, June -29.— Sunday the exodus from the metropolis of the Na tion to the Mecca of pugilism will be gin, and excursions to New Orleans will then be of daily occurrence until July 5. Sporting newspapers and specula tide individuals are fanning trains South at reduced rates, and the proba bilities are that 1,000 men will forsake the cool breezes of Sheepshead Bay, Coney Island, and Long Branch for the sweltering atmosphere of the marshy lowlands of Mississippi. Who will win? I am back from the big fel low's quarters only a couple of days, and, having seen him. am satisfied that be is as good as he ever was, which, as you know, is better than any other man. Until within a couple of days 1 was fearful that Sullivan would not regain his wonted vigor, his agility, and stam ina, but my fears have been dissipated, and I now believe him to be again his peerless self. This then being the case, why should he not win? When at his best, or nearly so, he threw dowu the gauntlet to the world and did not meet a peer. The'best men of this great nation met him and suffered quick defeat. From the bush in Australia came a swarthy giant, who was easily whipped, and from the laud of bitter beer, bull dogs, and pugilism came tried and trusted athletes, all of whom were forced to ac knowledge his prowess. But then in discretions weakened him, and he was tied by a strong youth, whose cunning and ability are acknowledged, and John L. lost in popularity. But his true friends have stuck to him and have re deemed him, and may again plant him on the pinnacle with the emblem of champion encircling his waist. AS TO KILRAIN. Do not underrate the ability of Jake Kilrain, however. He is young, strong, skillful and courageous, It Is the am bition of his life to whip Sullivan, and all in his power will be done to accomp lish that end. Still, the records of the two men favor Sullivan. Sullivan has fought three times as many glove fights as Kilrain, and won all but one. He has fought two London prize-ring fights, winning one and the championship, and ■ALL OUR" ...'■■-...."■- -'..-....:■.-•:.■ .'..-..■.■--■.".. '•':',.■ '■ .■■ $15, $16, $18 and $20 jt^w^*_.

Kilrain could only make a draw, with Smith in 106 rounds, and Mitchell wagered money he could whip Smith in twelve three-minute rounds.* Jake has only won three glove fights over men at all well-known— | Joe Lannou, George Godfrey (colored), and Frank. Herald. Therefore, with these differ ences in the records and apparent rela tive abilities of the men, and with both in possession of all necessary qualifica tions to do battle," Sullivan looks a winner. But John L. will have no easy victory. It will be a grand battle. Sullivan and his party ; will leave Bochester Tuesday morning at 4 o'clock, and will arrive in Cincinnati at 7 p. in. the same day. They will leave Cincinnati for New Orleans at 7 o'clock Wednesday morning. C 1 will be one of the party to go with the "big fellow.", and should anything occur to cause a change in my opinion I will state it : fearlessly. Sully is an erratic individual, and, like yellow fever.is liable to break out .at the most unex pected time and place. Kilrain may depended on to keep straight from now until after the fight, when, win or lose, I suppose he will have a jamboree. Now that the ring site has been se lected and all arrangements for the battle completed, it behooves the back ers of the men to come together and agree on A REFEREE. This, of course, will needs be done at the ringside in any case, but much good would be accomplished if they met and tacitly agreed prior to the day of the battle. Failing in this they could select a list of five men, one of whom could be named at random by. Stakeholder Al Cridge by drawing from a hat. This would prevent any possible hitch or failure of the fight, although at the present writing there is no danger of any interference or prevention in the manner named. Charlie Mitchell, Jake Hiram's trainer, was in town to-day, and left again for Baltimore. Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell left Baltimore last night and got here early this morning. Charlie tailed on Manager Clark at Richard K. Fox's office and arranged the time of Jake Kilrain's leaving his training quarters for New Orleans, the scene of the battle. Mr. Clark proposed that Jake board the special train which will leave Jersey City on the morning of July 4, and Charlie liked the proposi tion. The train will take on excur sionists at Philadelphia and Baltimore, and thus it is likely that Kilrain will accompany his friends to the battle ground. Mitchell said he never felt more confident of Kilrain's ability to whip Sullivan, "it is a pleasure to be his trainer," he added. KILRAIN AT WORK. Sullivan's Opponent in Training at Druid Hill, Md. Washington. June Jake |Kil rain is training at Druid Hill, near Baltimore. Charley Mitchell says that the place is not a bad one to train in, but that it is a bit too near town. Though Mitchell is not in training, he takes almost as much exercise as Kil rain does. This makes Kilrain go at his work more cheerfully than he would if he were alone, and there is a sort of friendly nvalrv about it. Kilrain boxes but little. The only exercise that he takes that would indicate that he is going to fight is hitting the ball. This he does in a little building just back of the hotel. It used to be a barn, but it has been unused for some time, and the floor of hard packed dirt is smooth and swept clean. The bag is tied by a short rope to the rafters, about a foot and a half above Kilrain's head, and a couple of boards have beennailed across the rafters for the ball to strike as it flies up from contact with Kilrain's fist. The rope it hangs by is but about three feet long, and this makes the ball fly back and forth much . faster when used than a longer rope would. This makes hitting the ball lively work, and neces sitates great quickness in hitting and dodging. It is only once in two or three days, when he feels like it for amuse ment, that Kilrain has a bout with the gloves with Mitchell.

THE SAINT PAUL P^LTY GLOBE: STJXDAY MORNING, JUNE 30, 1889.— SIXTEEN PAGES. is paid to sparring. .The daily pro gramme Is one of almost uninterrupted activity. The fighter and his trainer get up about '•: -:"•.;-"-■ 0 O'CLOCK EVERY MORNING and start for a limbering-up walk ex-. . tending one mile out and back, return ing in time .for a 7 o'clock breakfast, which consists of toast, one cup of weak tea, either boiled eggs or a chop, and, If desired, a piece of fish. After break fast they retire to their.: rooms, and Kil rain's face and hands are pickled. This operation no I one is . allowed to see. Mitchell said that the preparation used was one of his own, and that he would neither tell what it was nor sell the; preparation. The pickle hardens the hands and face by toughening the skin, and prevents the face from bruising easily. As soon as the pickling process is completed, Kilrain. puts on his "sweaters," which are made of fine wool, and are extraordinarily thick, and would keep one warm in the coldest day of winter, and he and Mitchell start for a walk. • . - A FOUR-MILE RUN. Kilrain usually runs about four miles and then comes back and has ago at the ball in the little whitewashed barn. While he is at it and making the hair stuffed leather bag .* fly back and forth like a shuttlecock, with a rapid crackle as it hits the boards overhead, a bath is prepared, and as soon as he gets through with the ball, he is washed down and rubbed by Mitchell. The bath is of arti ficial salt water, and tlie|rubbing Mitch ell gives is far from gentle. Then it is about 1 o'clock and they get ready for a dinner of boiled mutton, or roasted beef, or steak, or boiled chicken, fish, bread and greens. No potatoes, rice or vegetables, which are considered fat tening, are eaten. A pint of ale is ta_en with dinner. After dinner the pick ling process is once more gone through with. After dinner the morning's pro gramme is about repeated, save that the ball is pounded about rather longer, and perhaps Kilrain and Mitchell have a go with the gloves. All this is making a great change in Kilrain. People who saw him here at the close of his tour say he looked beefy, and he did. "Now all this beef is gone. He has had his mus tache shaved, too, and it makes him look much different. The supper is a light meal. Mitchell's idea is that what is eaten before sleeping is more apt to make fat than what is eaten at other times, and so he doesn't let his big charge eat much supper. He is in splendid condition as line as silk. His face has a peculiar dead look, the result of the thorough pickling it has got, and doesn't look healthy. But when he strips down his neck and shoulders show up as brown as a bun and smooth as satin. The parts of his body more protected have a lighter pinkish tint that indi cates perfect condition. -He weighed 194% pounds yesterday. When he went into training he weighed 208, and Mitchell wants him to fight at 184. He has banted fourteen pounds already, and this leaves ten pounds to be got rid of before July 7or 8. But he could go into the ring to-day, and it would bother an experienced man to point out any. superfluous tissue. r".-:***"'*' He said yesterday that he was con fident. All he wants is perfect busi ness. "Are you going to accept the proposi tion of the people who offered to build a big amphitheater?" the reporter asked him. ;. "No, we haven't yet, and don't expect to. They want to select the referee, • and we can't consent to that. The ref eree will not be selected until Sullivan is in the ring. I never felt better in my life and 1 am perfectly easy." "We are getting along finely," Mitch ell told the reporter, "and! couldn't ask for any better progress than Kilrain is making in getting in perfect condi tion. He is a bit heavy yet, but there is plenty of time to get down | to where he should be. Mr. Stevenson and Mr. Donnivan are making the business ar rangements for the match, and are on their way to New Orleans now to see about it. Kilrain takes to training kindly, and is easily handled. .He walks and runs about twenty-five miles .every day, and lie goes about his work, as if he enjoyed it." SULLIVAN VERY POPULAR. The Big Fellow Catches on With "••;'-*;'' -.; Belfast People. ,;',';.£ ; J^vy . ./Belfast, N.-Y., June Sullivan Is becoming more and t more . popular every day he remains iv the village, and it is getting so that :; he ■ is looked upon almost as an old. resident. His popu larity is due to . his generosity, * aud to ' ' say he has a large ! heart does j not ex press it. He had been here but a short 7 ; .time when himself and party gave an; exhibition for the ; benefit of tup village ' hire department ', netting them a iarge : sum, by which they were enabled ;to purchase new uniforms for. the entire company. His latest act is the securing of the necessary funds to procure an invalid's ;- chair "for a ; poor cripple 'Who '"> is .- seen daily ;on the - streets crawling on his hands aud knees, with •■ the. assistance of a low stool. •: People in general would suppose that Sullivan preparing for the tight would be full of . anxiety and not in the inood^or joking but such is not the case, and it is doubt ful if there ;is a man ' anywhere to be found to-day who is more jolly, pleasant and cheerful than the great John L. He was in a store last evening for the pur pose of purchasing some woolen mittens to protect his hands nights after usiug rosin - and' the " hardening process on them, and being unable to find anything suitable he * sent a . messenger to Mul doon's house, Z nearly one-fourth of a mile distant, for Cleary. When that individual arrived Sullivan requested him to purchase a pair of woolen stock ings, saying he could use them for cov ering his hands nights and, to be eco nomical, use them afterward in knock ing Kilrain out. : . . * HE JESTS ALL DAT long in this manner, and it can be im agined he does not dread the coming con test. In reply to an \ inquiry I made re garding the proclamation issued by Gov. Nichols, of Lousiana, relative to fight ing in that state, Sullivan and party said It would not affect them at all. Sul livan's training grounds are right in the heart of the Blue mountains. Sullivan is in his thirty-first year, and a few months Kilrain's ' senior. . He is 5 feet 10% inches tall, and fights at 195 pounds. His measurements, when vhe was con sidered the invincible pugilist, were : Chest, 44 inches; .bleeps, 16J£; calf, 15%; thigh, 27. He weighed 230 pounds when he yielded himself to Wrestler William Muldoon, Mike Cleary and Jack Barnett as' trainers. That they mean business in getting; him into fighting shape may be inferred from the fact that they would hot consent to let him leave . Belfast and come to New York and spar for the Johnstown relief fund at Madison Square Garden last Thursday night. He wanted to come himself, but they feared the bad effect of a four-day let up in training, and held him an unwilling prisoner. His training is nearly all done out of doors, and there is a heap of it in a day. He rises at 6:30 or 7 o'clock, and strips to ! the skin and' exercises for twenty minutes with, the dumb bells. He thumps the bag a little after that, and then takes a shower bath of salt water - and is ' rubbed down by his trainers. He sprints some . for a few. minutes, if he feels like it, before he sits down to breakfast of cracked wheat and milk, with a bit of steak or a chop and some tea if he desires it. By 9 o'clock he is all rested and ready for his daily walk of from twelve to twenty-five miles over, the rolling country. This walk is a corker as a flesh reducer. . He is actually loaded down with heavy clothes. He has a flannel shirt weigh ing three and a : half pounds, with a sweater weighing eight pounds added. Over this is worn a heavy . .. CORDUROY COAT. His hands are incased in leather-lined mittens, and he wears a velvet cap and carries a short, heavy-stick. The walk lasts until 1:30 or ; 2 o'clock, and John comes home dripping with prespiration. His trainers give -him some warm tea, and he stretches out awhile on a bed or sofa to rest. Then his train ers get at him again with the water shower bath, scour his flesh with rough towels, and stretching him stripped on a long board thrown across the backs of two chairs, all three rub him hard with - their hands and then. anoint him with flesh-hardening liniment. Next 'comes a dinner of roast '- beef, or mutton, or chicken, with vegetables and , fruit for dessert. He washes the food F. down with two glasses of the best ale. ' Forti fied by this - : meal, ■ he ? lounges •' about : under the trees or plays '■ with » the two big, : mastiffs . on ,- the : farm ; until half Jm,; hour r before supper. By. that li n*'* he ■ is rested enough' to wrestle with Muldoon or Cleary : for haft, an hour.; After supper, which is a ; f nilgai one, he bats a - ball around, and tl en throws the heavy shot and goes to bacr and a- sound sleep at 9or 9:30. From the time of Bendigo to " the pres eilFday many celebrated pugilists have injifie their appearance in the prize ring. (There have been countless champions, . jbfctSthe king of them all is John Law [ratfee Sullivan. Heenan, Sayers, Mor rij^v, Yankee Sullivan, .Tom Hyer, . •'Joe?

It ■" is said ' that Sulli van has passed the zenith of his glory, that he is not the mighty pugilist • . he was five years ■ ago. This may be. Still he is yet to be de- . feated in the ring, and thousands upon thousands of dollars will : be wagered upon his success in his meeting with . Kilrain. To know Sullivan when he is • himself is to know a prince among good fellows. His popularity is wide-spread.

Mr. Barnett said : ."Sullivan '.' never looked better.

Mr. Barnett ..- had plenty of interesting things to tell about the New Orleans favorite. He said Sullivan is taking ;as naturally to training as a duck does to water.

Barnett gives Muldoon. great credit for what he has accomplished in training Sullivan and giving him lessons in wrestling. He says when ; Sullivan gets : into the ; ring he will know a point or two about wrestling that have never occurred to Kil rain.

He would prefer to have some more ex perienced man. However, the matter will be decided in a few days, and when it is, the name of the . missing second will be made public. As far as Sullivan is concerned, nothing will interfere with a fight unless the champion drops dead. The Kilrain party will be conceded everything in order that there :■■■■ * , may • ; be no kick. And square . - man as a referee will suit Sullivan, no matter where he hails from. There will be plenty of good men down from the North, and there are good men right here New Orleans capable of serving. As far as the in terest of the North is concerned, it is getting more intense, every day. So far there has been little betting in New York; bnt what there is of it Mr. Barnett says is favorable to Sullivan. Preparations for. the fight are progressing smoothly. Bua Ren iieaud, who has charge of the excursion, is receiving constantly applications for tickets and special cars. All parties . of sixty will" be furnished a special car, _nd can equip themselves as they wish in the matter of personal comforts. The Southern Athletic club of this city has engaged three special coaches for mem bers and their guests, and . social clubs of the city have engaged several more. The first train to leave the city, about" 4 a. m. Monday, July 8, will be the spe cial train of ten or more cars, the occu •pants paving $15 each. This train will be followed a few minutes later by a train of. twenty cars, or more if required, all reaching the battle ground in •- an hour. The ring will be pitched before daylight, and be in readiness for use when the ' . excursionists " arrive. It is confidently expected that the fight will commence at 8 a. m. and the excursionists return to the city by noon. The managers think there will be 5,000 people at the ring side. Capt Tom ■.
