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.
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

making a draw with Mitchell In" thirty
nine rounds, besides winning two finish
fights" under Queensberry rules.
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
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.
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. Little attention

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. • . -
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
"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."
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. : . .
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
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.

a school of his own. His style is : new
and original. Many ••: fighters have
striven to copy it, bur have not suc
ceeded. Peculiar In temperament, er
ratic in habits, Sullivah has assisted his
enemies in their attempt to cause his,
dethronement, and a phenomenal con
stitution has alone prevented the man's
downfall. 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

New Orleans, June 29.— J. W. Bar
nett, who left John L. Sullivan Wednes
day evening at his training quarters in
New --': York 7 state, arrived here this
! morning to* receive ' notice as to the
selection of the battle : ground. = Being
interviewed -" . Mr. Barnett said :
."Sullivan '.' never looked better. "I
knew' him when * he * fought
Ryan, ; and I: tell . you frankly
he Is in better ■ shape at . present -than
ever in his life. -As far as : I can see
there is not a bit of superflous flesh on
hint)' and the story, that he is flabby
looking 'about; the muscles is all bosh.
His wind is excellent," and his legs are
as solid.ahd strong ; almost as bars of
steel, just before I left he skipped
a 'rope .' 800 - times without ;' a
break,-- and a man must have
pretty good legs and mighty good wind
to do that." 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. His
docility is > something remarkable. He
does everything Muldoon tells him, and
he realizes perfectly that he must show .
the country again just what he is made
of. . When he strips the public
will be amazed to - see the mag
nificent specimen of combined
muscle; he is. He is verily a Her
cules and his pristine strength of limb
and vigor of rush have come back. The
big fellow himself has as little fear
about the result as he would have if
Andy Bowen were to be his opponent.
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. "Mr. Barnett does not know who
will be behind Sullivan in the big fight.
Cleary can be counted on. but the other
man •is unknown. Maybe it will be
Asbton, though Sullivan himself did not
know last week who was likely to as
sist. ■-•'-- - .-' -
and could : fill the bill, but Muldoon
"would hardly care to :go behind ' John.
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.

The California Athletic Club
. Throws Cold Water on Killen's
Special to the Globe. ■
Duluth, Minn.,' June 29.— Pat K'tllen
gave an exhibition to-night to a packed
house.. Before the sparring commenced
a message from the California Athletic
club of San Francisco was . read, forbid
ding Klllen to engage -in any knock-out
contests. If he did, they, will consider
his engagement to fight Mc Auliffe as off.
This becoming known, a lot of fighters
Pat Sheehy, Conley and Paddy McDon
ald among .them, wanted to stand be
fore Killen. Tills, of. course, was im
possible, and for a time a general riot
seemed, inevitable. Manager Gooding
then offered to put up $500 . in the
hands : •of any • responsible person
that Klllen could whip ; any of the
gang when his McAuliffe fight was over-
The audience was disgusted. The even.
ing's entertainment was lively and spir
ited. Killen said to the Globe re
porter: "1 would . fight : any of them
now and let the California club go, but
wait and. see them crawl. Gooding
shook $500 at them, but- not a penny did
they put up." ; Killen : said from • the
stage that he would fight any white man
living inside of two weeks.
Special to the Globe. ; -•.
Duluth, Minn., June 29. —Joe Sheehy
was on hand, to-night to meet Pat Kil
len, who : offered 1500 to any man be
could not. knock out in six rounds, but
Killen refused to meet Sheehy. The
latter then offered to ; put up $500 and
fight Killen ■■ twenty-five rounds with
two-ounce gloves, but Killen refused
also. Sheehy had the money under
Gooding's nose, and has made a host of
friends, while Killen was hissed and
called a coward and cur. .
