Tommy . Ryan? and Jack Root
'v Are Matched to fight.
Xhey Will Do Battle In Jim Gorbett's
: Club In Cincinnati It -Will Take
Place Between January 1 and Feb-
- ruary 15 Sharkey's Manager Want-
tU to Have Hiin Fight Pons the
' "Wrestler '"Mysterious" Billy Smith
Arrested For .Cruelty to Animals
-Buffalo's Lobster Fight.
Tommy Ryan, of Syracuse, and Jack
Root, of Chit-ago, will battle for the
middleweight championship some time
, between January 1 and February 15
at Convention hall, Cincinnati. James
J. Corbett is now arranging and will
manage the- bout. The articles-will
trail for twenty rounds at 158 pounds
at noon on the day of the bout. Tom
my Ryan came to .New York yesterday
. and signed the club articles prepared
by Corbett. Root, who is anxious t
. meet the middleweight champion, will
sign as soon as he receives the articles.
Corbett offers a $5,(RHl purse or a
percentage of the gross receipts. This
Is to be determined when Ryan and
Root meet to sign articles' and postal
forfeit. The men will fight according
to Marquis of Queensberry rules. Cor
bett will post $2.r.OO with Al Smith as
a guarantee that the bout will take
-place on the date that will be agreed
upon. Ryan and Root will also have
to post a forfeit of $1,250 each as a
guarantee of good faith.
The friends of the former champion
will be surprised to learn that he has
branched out as a promoter of lights.
Corbett. however, became interested
when Herman J. Witte, who repres
ented the stockholders of Convention
hall in Cincinnati, offered $15.MXt for
a twenty round bout between Corbett
and Jeffries. The champion spurned
this offer, even after Corbett declared
that he would add $5,000 to Mr Witte's
offer If Jeffries would consent to meet
him. Before Mr Witte returned to
. Cincinnati Jie had an understanding
with Corbett whereby the latter could
'Secure Convention hall .for a twenty
round bout between boxers of note, so
as to attract a good attendance. Ac
cording to arrangements Corbett is to
hand over 40 per cent of the gross
receipts. Maor Fleisciim'an has con
sented to issue a license for the bout
provided it takes place before Febru
ary 15.
Corbett believes that a fight between
Root and Ryan for the middleweight
?hatupionsihip of the world will be as
big an, attraction as a bout between
heavyweights. Ryan ir, the undisputed
champion, since McCoy can no longer
get down to, the middleweight limit
' 158 pounds. Root has. for a long time,
aspired to mix it up with Ryan for a
longer period than six rounds.
Ryan was asked yesterday if it was
possible for Root to make the stipulat
ed weight without jeopardizing his
chances. ,' ' " "
"Oh, I don't see why not." answered
Ryan. ""He will weigh in early in the
day and I believe that lie will -take
on some weight before the fight. Root
assured hie in Chicago a few days aao
that he could easily get down, to 158
pounds, aud if he weakens himself by
doing it. why,' then. I have a better
chance to win. Root Is a pretty husky
chap, let me telL you. The last time
we met. in a six round bout. Root
weighed 104 pounds. I can beat him,
though, if he weighed a ton."

A few days ago Leonard was pitted
against a really good mau. Art Simms,
of, Akron,- O. The tight taokiilace at
Erie," Fa, and there is the story of
the contest: "At the opening Leonard,
tried to ""rush" things, but be met the--Ohio
boy's list too frequently. In the
seventeenth .Leonard, was down three;
times, and the last time the bell came
before the count was finished. He
saved himself from a knockout in this
round by clinging. In the eighteenth
Joe was again down three times and
took the count each time. The nine
teenth and twentieth were tame, but
Leonard's face was like a 'piece of raw

Meriden Defeated Hartforii Last

M. J. Dwver won smother wrestling

. Jean Jacques is Selling 'Cages in
Hartford. Dec 5. Of all the surpris
es that the Hartford team has run up
against this, season, the one . of last
might wins the prize. Meriden was
here and, of course, everybody looked
for an easy victory, but there Is 'where
the surprise came in. Meriden start
ed in to win and' win she did with
the greatest of case. In the first per
iod her players made so many goals
that Hartford" nearly had a cat fit aud
it took flip heart out of her players,
and thus she lost. Dumpy Williams
played with the Meriden team and he
proved a mascot for the taileuders. The
score and summaiy: '
Cadets and Elms Could Xot Agree as
to Terms.
Representatives of the Cadets and
Elm foot ball teams had a conference
in the Democrat office last evening,
but failed to arrange a game. The
Cadets want to play for $100 a side,
while the Elms were willing to play for
fun or for any amount as high as $50
a side. They made the claim that be
iug a small organization, with no back
crs. nor no money m t lie treasury, that
they were not able to raise $100' just
at present. The representative of the
Cadets was firm, however, and said
that unless the Elms could post $100,
tuarautee to post it. he could make
no match, anu. sum lie. it me ipivu
ow in 'my possession is not put up
nd covered to-night. I leel confident
there will be no game as, in all prob
ability, if the match is not made to-
ight. the matter will be dropped..
This." he said, "is not oHiclal, but
it "is hit opinion of the matter.' With
that the conference came, to an end.
Before leaving, the -Elms wished the
lemoerat to announce that, they are
willintr to play the" Cadets for the
port there is in the game, or for any
mount un to . iney are wining
to have the game free to the public
or they will allow the Cadets to take
all the gate receipts. They will play
next Saturday or n. week from Satur
day, at the convenience ot tne cauets.
The Elms seem to mean, business, ai-
t hough a little shy of funds, and if
the' Cadets really want a game, it iooks
as though it were up to them now.

"Well,- let's hear it," said the sailor,
showing some impatience.
"Why, it's this," said Reich, with an
air of mystery. "While you are wait

champion of France."
-. Reich stood back and gazed at the
Bailor to note the effect of the proposal.
"Certainly I'll fight the champion of
France," said Sharkey, with custom

"Why," responded Reich, "fight him

"Yes. yes. that's all right.'-' respond

Meriden owners buy out Doe and his
whole Lewiston aggregation, if-such
a thing was possible. . It would mean
the expenditure of a lot of money; but
it would undoubtedly be a money mak

Harvard "Grad" Thinks Football Rules
Should Be Amended.
Cambridge. Mass. Dec 5. In a Com
munication to the Harvard urimson.
H. C Leeds of Boston proposes
elm nu-es in the football rules. Mr
Leeds was graduated from Harvard
in '77. and while in college played the
old came of Rugby. Since graduatiu
hn has taken a deep interest 111 root-
ball, and has followed the development
of thu modern name witli a great deal
of interest. He suggests the follow
ine chances:
1. After a touchdown there snail oe
no'pujit out. but the goal shall be tried
!it the difficult atlttle.
2. If on a punt or kick-off the ball
hits tile goal post and rebounds into
the field it should be- counted as though
it had gone over the line, tuns eliminat
ing the chances of big gains and fluke
ilia vs.
3. The cantain should nave me elec
tion of whether he will take a penalty
imnosed on the opponents or a gain
that he has made. The referee should
not blow. 'his whistle when a foul 1
made, but wait until the ball is
downed, and -then notify the captains
and ask the side that has gained which
it will take, the decision or the dis
t:.nce naiued. regardless of length or
scores. - .
4. If there Is a case of holding or
eff-side play on the kick-off the cap
tain of the eleven receiving the kick
off shall have the say whether the
game shall go on without penalty or
have the kick made over. ,
New Haven here to-night. .' ; . t .
And to think that Meriden walloped
Hartford.- the team that has been kick
ing so much against her. . Tom Cotter
must have thought a whole lot of things
after that battle was over last night.
If Meriden gets Cunningham, look
out for trouble from that team, for
with Russell, Cunningham, Williams.
Hayes and Cusick the Meridens should
make it interesting for all the teams.
A few nights ago Manager Miller, of
the Meriden team said he would give
$100 to secure two fast players for his
team. Some of the Pawtucket boys

he 'could make money during tne win

that there are men in Worcester who
rely on bartending for a. living and
that those men should be protected
by the union.. The position of the ball

Now that football Is over Bridgeport

C.uban Convention Considers Coustitu
- tion.
HAVANA, Dec. 5. The Cuban con
stitutional convention resumed its sit
tings yesterday with nn air of business.
The first thing done was to defeat over
whelmingly the motion of Senoi- Gual
berto Gomez to discuss General Wood's
address at the opening of the conveu
tion. Thfcs action will probably close
the incident.
Three complete constitutions were sub
mitted by General Rivera, . Senor de
Quesada and the colored general Morua
respectively. These will be printed and
distributed among the delegates, who
will discuss them later.
General Rivera's proposed constitution
provides for a president, a senate, a
house of reoresenta lives, a governor for
each of the six. provinces, a legislative
body for each province and for one lnenir
ber of the house of representatives for
every 30,000 inhabitants. With vlection
by popular vote. His scheme calls also
for the election -of three -electors in each
municipal district, whose duty it shall
be to elect a legislative body of 11 for
the-province in which they reside. Th'.s
legislative body shall elect the governor
and four members of the senate. Final
ly the "six legislatures shall meet and
choose the president,., who must be a na
tive Cuban. Candidates for senatorial
honors must haveuincomes of at least
$1,500 a year. .. ." '
General Rivera's - idea is to have the
power vested in the. central government,
and the convention, virtually pledged it
self to one state government at "Mon
day's secret session. -,.
Senor de Quesada's proposal would
centralize the government in a president,
senate and house of representatives elect
ed by the people, su,frae. being restrict
ed to educational -qiialificatijons.
General Morua ollered for approval, the
constittition of the United States with
the exception that any one who fought in
the war might be chosen president. His
proposal, leaves the question of an .army
and navy to be decided by congress.
Senor Zayas offered a- clause providing
that a judicial body higher than the su
preme court should be elected by popular
vote and providing that any oftteral re
moved from office should have the right
of appeal to this body.
Senor Ferrara submitted a general ed
ucational scheme. -
Defeated by Only One-Bird in Fiftj
Bird Match.
Tod Sloaue's ability as a marksman
is second only to his ability as a jock
ey. Yesterday - the famous race-rider
met Phil Daly,. Jr. in a tiny-bird match
for $o0li a side: Tlie match was shot
at interstate park, Oueens, L. I., yes
terday, and although Tod failed to
win he made a remarkably good show
ing, Daly beating him only one bird.
Experts at the traps said that the
match not only was one of the closest.
but one of the best of the season. Some)
yars ago "Snapper" Garrison was
famous as a jockey, a shot and a piano
player. Varied as the. "Snapper's" ac
complishments were, Sloane threatens
to leave him in the shade.
The. match was shot in a pouring
rain -which beat ill the faces of the
shooters and drenched them to the
skin. A faster lot of blue rock pig
eons could not, have been found. 1 he
moment the traps were sprung they
were away like the wind, and almost
ill were straight drivers. Sloane was
first at the scratch. His third bird
carried both barrels over the lifty-yard
boundary and dropped .dead just put
Miilo His thirteenth was a clean miss.
His .nineteenth died just out and hfs
twentieth was a miss.
On the second round Sloane hit his
twenty-seveiitli bird hard, but he car
ried it out. His. thirty-second was
fast and a clean miss. His thirty-sixtii
bird was a right, driver, but carried
both loads over the line. His forty
fourth was a clear miss.
' Daly lost his second, ninth, twentieth
and t'wenty-lifth shots, all four birds
being wry fast and the rain making
it almost impossible to see them. His
forty-second - was. knocked down, but
arose and flew over the boundary, w
to fall' dead, -His forty-fourth was a
fast driver and he missed. His for-ty-fith"
carried two loads over the
boundary betore tailing ueuu.

Porto Rlco'a House ot Delegates Re
ceives Valuable instructions.
SAN JUAN, Porto Rico, Dec. 5. The
Porto Rican house of delegates was har
moniously organized, Senor Manuel F.
Rossy being elected speaker. While in

the two bodies adopted a resolution to
cable greetings to President McKinley. .
Governor Allen's message, consisting of
3,000 words, was well received. After
congratulating the people of Porto Rico

Glasgow, Dec 5. Discussing the
America's cup challenger yesterday .-
George rL. .Watson, the designer of . the
Shamrock 11, said: - ."mere is not a
liit nf truth in the reports that the
new boat will embody striking novel
ties. A cup challenger is scarcely" the
kind of a boat a designer would choose
for experiments. The Shamrock it
will be like some of the other big boats
in existence. Whatever novelties there
are will be in construction details."
