BURNS-JOHNSON GO WON BY PRINCETON Affair the Most Talked of "Far away Bout" Fought Within Last Ten Years. Tiger Chess Team Captures First Honors in Seventeenth Annual Tournament. JOHNSON'S PERSISTENCE YALE FINISHES FOURTH Negro Traveled 12,000 Miles to .Meet the Canadian Meant Much U Him. Nw York, Deo, 23. Not, a doubt .x-"r lit. that the match between Tommy" . , . ... . . t hoxinff ent'lii slttsm lii this ctt v For 2 "lmg wUy. from homo' all'ilr It li more discussed than any contest tha," has taken olaee In vears. ft'L... r... - .1... T.,1... son in keei.inir after Hums, anil t li fact that both tho negro and bis ma n- j agera are well known in tills city for "Hum" FiUpatrlck. Johnson's handler, 1l a familiar friend to all the sport j from Fourteenth street to Forty-second 1 undoubtedly has mneh to do with the 1 eagerness or snorting circles 10 re.ui to every lin of news Hint comes from the rar oft land ot tlio kangaroo. Johnson linn tho record of being tho only man In the history of pugilism who has traveled 1,200 miles to make a fight, lie oroaacd the American continent, crossed the Atlantic ocean, and then as Burns tailed away again (darted after him to thu Antipodes. John I,. Sullivan grot over the Atlan tlo in Ills quest for a match with Char ley Mitchell, and tholi crossed the Eng lish channel, but. be Mopped at that, There has been some report that thn receipts for the tight will bo the largest ever taken In by a promoter of a box ing oonteBt. There Is some doubt as to this. It Is true that tho total will foot up an .enormous sum, but It Is also trim that there have heen largo gate re ceipts In the United States, whori box ing was tolerated at New Orleans, and It lo not Ultely that the receipts wlil pe much If any larger than those of thn Cqrbett-Sulllvnn fight aome years ago. The estimate which Is now made of the receipts It that they will fall koim Oltngr under J70,0n0. Of this amount the flarhtera will gat 135, )00 and of this Amount Burns will receive almost all. Tba Canadian will bo In a position to retire with a competence for life, win r loaa.. Ha Is not Intending- to retire Tie ! makes cnrintta tanley Ketchel for his opponent i be back with Stanley Ketchel for his ormonen If Ketch el Is In a position to take him on. It must not be considered that, the ftrhtara ere confronting weather like that which la blowing; around N-w York at the present, time. In isow ' Donin wojes 11 is itohi as warm as; it la here on the Fourth of July, and ha boxera are working out of doors and taking; much of their preliminary work In camps which are In realty open Jr training- quarters within private enclosures. Warm weather Is pond for Johnsnn. ! He revels in It and snya that he can! fght batter in tho bent than h" can 1 In the cold. Burns Is not so mte'lt a hot weather fighter ns in tits oppo nent, but as he hns been In Australia for noma time he believes that he Is well nough acclimated to do his best work agalnst the negro. Without a doubt there Is an under- currant In this city In the way of pop- ular opinion which favors the ncero against Burns. With It, however, Is a , half accepted notion that there Is like. ly to be something wrong about the fight. Most of the local experts r fearful that Johnson la not likely to do his best, although everything points to tho other conclusion. If the neyro should heat Burns he would be sure of a tight In the future or would become the accepted heavy. weight: champion with 110 one to ehal- lenge him. About tho only hope , c W"-llos frr boxing contests lo i-omn f -o best. Burns this time. A slip will tnrnn that he may be out of the fighting game for a long season to come. I nil n ikiii Bis :iu ontii ., Jim Stewart, tht New York Imavy-! weight, and Al Kifblak, thn Michigan J giant, will be matched next week to ! meet for alx rounds at either the Xa- ! tlonal A. C. or the West. End IV. C. of i Philadelphia. They fought a bruising ( battle at tho latter club a few weeks ; ago, and as Stewart gave Kuhlnk thi best fight ao far of any of tho big fel- lowa, tho chances ara that they will be apeedlly signed up. "Joe" Jeannette, tba negro light heavy-weight, who has been signed up for alx contests In Europe, beginning next month, will sail for Paris on le Oemher 30. "Willie" Lewis, who la bookod for ten bouts, will depart for the other side about January 4 or 5. Jeannette and Lewis will train together for their bouts. "Cyclone" Johnny Thompson baa heen matched to box Young Corbett at New Orleans nn the evening ot Janu ary 14. Tho event Is set. for twenty-five, rounds. Tt If almost certain now that "Jim" ' DrlBeoll, the Kngllsb champion, and "Abe" At.tell, the American champion, will come together In a, 2fi round battle before the Jeffries Athletic club of Los Angnlea, Cal., for the featherweight, championship of the world. "Jim" Jef fries, manager of the club l.s anxious to hrlng these two greal boxers togeth er, and has offered 00 per cent, of the gross receipts for them to battle for at any date next month which Is suita ble to them. New Year's eve Is the dale selected for the no-round go In Lexington, Ky., between "Mike" ftchreck, the Cincin nati heavyweight and Marvin Hart, the Kentucky "near" champion, They will meet before the new Fayette Athletic club and lite cntile.t will be for a de cision, with some well known ring of ficial as referee. Hart Is In Lexington, and will llttlsh up . Ids training thero. Echreck Is training nt Reading, Ohio, Where he boxes each day with his spnr rlng partner, "Harry" Wuest. iTEFF DOmntTY ttFPLTKS, Local Boxes Willing to Meet Oorm- loy Any Time nf, Any Weight. In answer tn the dell of "Jim" Oorm ley, which appeared In nn evening pn per recently, Jeff Diiherly. the local fighter says that he Is willing to lake on Oormley tor n ngin nn n.nywucioi from six to fifteen rounds, winner tult all. Aa tegnrds the weight, Jeff says j that Gormley may weigh a ton If lie wants, and that the weight ucNlloitj would have hut little bearing on ih"j mn'ler. As regards the assertion that Mr. Oorniley had "II" on him when Ihev In si mel for s! rounds at Merldeti, Jeff savs j thHl. Its all absurd, nnd lie Is willing to I prove II so. So now If Mr. Gormlev j wishes to inept a good man. anil really meant business in bis chlleiiKe, why, bore is his chance. Jeff lights in Albany the eighth of next mouth, his opponent being either Tib li Nelson or Young Corbett. Tie ulso intends to uienl Paddy Sullivan, the whlnwlnd. with whom he fought a draw here nn lb" foiirlcenl li of (lie month at the Sharkey dub In New York city, In the near future..
