PRESIDENT ZIMMER. Bays riayers Do Xot Want to Run the Easeball Game. Cleveland, O, I-'eb 15. Charles Zim mer. president of the Flayers' Pro tective association, last night gave out the following statement, which is the first official declaration of that asso ciation since the meeting of the play ers' association in this city recently: "There lias been some talk in the papers that the magnates are afraid that if they grant the protective as sociation a little now that next year we will jump in and demand so much that it will practically mean that the players instead of the owners will eon troi the game. 'Right here let me say that any feel ing among the owners that the pro tective association, if it gets some thing now, will probably want to run the game next year is entirely un founded, and I am willing to go on record to that effect. AVe have no de sire at all to seize the power of the owners, nor to run the game, but sim ply, as I have &aid many times, to correct certain abuses and see that they remain corrected. "At the present time I have no knowledge of any National league player signing with the American league. In case the National league and our association arrives at a satis factory understanding the Players' Protective association which I claim is founded on the best principals and is intended to be an organization working on fairness, and not to pro mote the interests of any one will use its influence and all the power it might possess in persuading its members to pursue an honorable course toward every person or oganization with which they may have business rela tions. "We always have been and want to be friendly with the National league. We always have felt a spirit of fair ness toward the owners, and always have shown that we were anxious to do all we could in conjunction with them to promote peace." William Maloney, who caught last ear for the North Attleboros, an nounces he has signed a contract to play with Milwaukee. An old time ball player deplores the Use of gloves by the players of to-day and insists that the catcher and first baseman are the only members of a team who should be permitted to wear any protection for their hands. Tom Lynch, who was turned out of the National league by a vote of the magnates last year, and refused to umpire later in the season when he was offered a position, may be on the 'American league staff this year. Callahan is another of Hart's re served players who does not hesitate to take a stand against the National league. "I think the American league people have just the right idea, and 1 admire them for their independent action." .; A. G. Spalding has said "no" most emphatically when asked if he would accept the presidency of the National league. He was Identified with the game in an active capacity for many years, and has no desire to break in -again, particularly when there is a Jfight to be waged. - . Walter Burnham the former Brock ton base ball manager, is In Boston for a. few days; he lias been recommend ed to the American association club of (Milwaukee. If he fails to get a berth with one of the major league clubs he will take a trip to Lowell and Manches ter to see how strong they are up that , way for a New England league. The close of the first period found Fortland leading by a margin of three goals and then Furbush proceeded to "quit" and during the remainder of the game he loafed around the stir race like a hired man. Furbush has 'worked this same trick in Portland uu weverai previous occasions, anu lie . apparently is not aware of the fact that the spectators who put up the money from which he draws his sal ary do not go to. a polo game to see , a man loaf, but they expect him to s. piay me game au ine time.

Purse of $5,000 Offered for a Graeco- Roman Bout The Big -Fight Was Knocked Out by Judge Hollister Charley Mitchell Came Over to See the Go But Will Be Disappointed Rumor Says He Would Like to Try Corbett. , - Chicago, Feb 15. A special to the Tribune from Cincinnati says: Jim Jeffries and (Jus Ruhlin may meet iu a Uraeco-Roman wrestling match within the next t. n days. An offer has been made the two pugilists to meet on the mat and Managers Brady and Madden have taken it into consid eration. It is said a purse of 5.000 has been guaranteed for the match and that it may be conducted in Saengerfest hall. Charles Mitchell, former 'boxing champion" of England, who fought a thirty -nine-round draw with John L. Sullivan at Chaiitillv, Franca, thirteen years ago and who was knocked out in a. punch by James J. Corbett in lh94, arrived here on the steamer Majestic yesterday. Though the Englishman is in good health, he is what might be termed "hog fat."' He weighs nearly 200 pounds and would probublv have as much dilhcultv m preparing himselt properlv lor a null as Sullivan had when he trained lor his mill with Cor bett. more than eight years ago. Mitch ell was a back number when Corbett whipped him so easily at Jacksonville, yet when he came down the Majestic's gang plank be said he might indulge in a mill while in this country, prefer ably with Corbett. If Mitchell moans what he savs. sporting men all over the country will probably declare that he lacks sound judgment, for though Corbett has seen bis best days, he is still fast and clever enough to make Mitchell look very small, indeed. But Mitchell always enjoyed a joke, es pecially at the expense of the Ameri can public, so that when he said he would perhaps fight again it was not at all surprising to see a twinkle in his eyes. It is a 100 to 1 shot that Mitchell has no idea of fighting any body again and that he has simply come over here to have a good time. He is one of the richest pugilists in the world and can afford to spend a "barrel of money" over here instead of picking one up. He intends to visit California to see some relatives and may see a couple of mills while there. The Englishman was sorry to learn that the big fight at Cincinnati had been stopped, though be said he was not interested in it. because . of the great superiority of Jeffries over Ruh lin. He was asked many questions about different American heavy weights, the most wonderful of whom is Fitzsimmons. in bis estimation, be cause of Robert's great hitting nower and comparatively light weight. Mitch ell late in the afternoon paid a visit to John L. Sullivan's cafe and the former rivals shook bands cordially. "It's a case of two old has-beens, Charley," said the big .fellow. "We had the front of the stage once, but the youngsters have the call now." They had a drink together. Mitchell later called on Cor bett and had a friendly talk. There was no ill feeling between them, ap parently Cincinnati, Feb 15. Judge Hollister in common pleas courts yesterday knocked out the Jeffries-Ruhlin fight so far as Cincinnati and the Buckeye state are concerned. The scheme for calling out the militia was also turned down and Cincinnati is regaining her usual marked composure just as rap idly as could be expected under the extraordinary circumstances. Presi dent Dieter le of the Saengerfest Ath letic club said last night: "Of course the fight is off so far as Friday night is concerned. We will hold a meet ing to-morrow, at which Mr Brady also will be present, and after that will be ready to formally announce our plans and purposes. Unless, of course, a higher court fails to sustain this de cision, we cannot do anything further in wishing our proiect." W. A. Brady said he knew nothing beyond what bad transpired in court. No other places were in view for holding (he championshin contest. Billy Madden said, half jokingly, half in earnest, that he intended suggesting to Brndy tak ing their men to Mexico and having them fight with bare knuckles, so that pictures could be taken of them for exhibition purposes, while they settled for good the championship question. Jim Jeffries and his trainer. Billy De laney, were seen nt a prominent resort down town last night, surrounded by a large crowd of sporting men. The champion was refreshing himself with a gin fizz. Delaney said that Jeffries would apiear at the Southern theater at Columbus on Saturday night. He will spar with his brother Jack. They will then return to Cincinnati and fill their week's engagement at Heuek's opera house. "We are all at sea." said Delaney, "as to where we will stop during the coming week, or what we will do. We may continue training at our' quarters on Price Hill, or may move down town. The decision was no surprise to me. I expected it from the first." The refunding of the mon ey received for tickets to the fight, about $33,000, will, not commence for some days yet. The money is on de posit at a prominent bank. Billy Rotchford and Clarence Forbes have been matened to box at Tommy White's new club at Lyons, 111, Feb ruary 21. , - - . AH the Pittsburg "scrappers" have moved across the line into youngs town, now that boxing is stopped at Pittsburg. . - Tommy Sharkey, who is playing an engagement at.

''It fs a "Happy Family" which performs-, that classic drama known as "The Honest Blacksmith," wherein Senor Robert Fitzaimmana deHfbte tlie theatergoing heart by forging horse shoes, following; villains and winning world's championships galore. A party of six three girls and three newspaper men journeyed last night to the Academy of Music, where Fitz is playing this week. They .wanted to see the play frohi behind the scenes. They saw It. They saw a whole lot of other things the aforesaid "Happy Family," for the most part. The "family" consists of Fitz, Mrs Fitz, little ttobbie Fitz, C. H. Murray, big "Ed" Dunkhorst, Harry Clifton (the villain who savs "Cur-r-so you, I will be revenged ') and a bunch of les ser lights . "Keep your eye on the villain," coun selled the mountainous Dunkhorst In the scene where Fitz hurls that de lightfully wicked malefactor out ot the window, '"i on see those mattress es; they're put there to break his tall. Well, watch." AM th the assistance of Murray, Dunkhorst deftly parted the mattress es leaving an open space between them; and signalled Fitz.- The latter stifled a grm as he exclaimed: "Tins is my reply to your base of fer!" find threw tne villain bodily out of the window. Down came poor Clifton with a re sounding swat on the bare boards, as the curtain fell. "Hurt yourself, old chap asked Fitz, with tender solicitude, after the act. , "Not so very much.'- replied the vil lain, "but I guess 1 must have landed in a hollow. ' "We stuck a prettv little assortment of nails in the Huntresses one inght last week," Fitz confided to the visitors, "and I hail to buy Chiton u new suit next day. ' The villain was assuredly "li" last night. In the tome scene he is sup posed to snacch-up a little hammer and try to brain a detective. Clifton is nearsighted and Fitz (entirely by accident) had substituted a huge sledge for the tiny hammer, and had, moreover, chanced to leave the sledge in red-hot proximity to the forge fire. Clifton obeyed the hero's command to drop the weapon with an eager sud denness and alacrity that were more than realistic. "Fftz is always putting up some sort of trick on us," remarked Dunkhorst. "and the best part of it is he never kicks when any one gets back at him." Meanwhile Fitz was preparing for his three-round "go" with Dunkhorst. lie hurt his hand against the "human freight cur's" jaw a few days ago. and had to wear bandages on knuckles, wrist and elbow. The kindly office of putting these on was performed by Mrs Fitz, who would allow no one else to make her liege lord ready for the bout. With deft, loving fingers, she adjusted the bandages and tied on the big, eight ounce glove. "If I had my way." she remarked to the Girl with the Violets, "no one else but myself should have ever gotten Bob ready for any of his fights." "If she had been in ' my corner," added Fitz in an aside to the Girl from 'Frisco, "I could never have got to Jeff. And now excuse me while I go on and dally with Dunkhorst." Little Bobby Fitzsimmons watched the bout from the wings, along with the visitors. "I'll bet papa's the best of the lot still," he confided to the Girl from Mamaroneck. ''Don't he. go at it like the real thing, though? Ilow'd you like to have gotten that left swing on your Jaw?" The girl addressed assured the star's first born that Dunkhorst was welcome to all her share of such honors. Before the beginning of the next act Fitz rejoined the visitors. He was clad in evening clothes. "Talk about the inconvenience of wearing what our Bowery friends call 'me glad rags!' he observed to the Girl with the Violets. ''Why, I feel more nt home in them than in any other clothes I wear. "By the way, you heard me speak on the-stage about my lion cub. That little lion was a wonder. I used to punch the bag when I was in training for Jeff. I'd punch the bag three min utes and then give it one thundering hard smash, and sit down and rest for a minute. "Well, that lion would have his eye on me. The minute I'd leave the bag he'd rush for it like a commuter from Pompton. N. J., running for a train. He'd stand up on his hind legs audi swat the bag back and forth, jst as he'd seen me do. And then heM hit it one extra heavy blow and then go and lie down. Wlnn't it sinnrf nf ltim''" with the Violets, and the light of an absolute relief shone from her eyes. During the kinetoscope fight the whole party sat on the dtrkonvl stage and Fitz pointed out to the Girl from Mamaroneck the various blows and the effect thev bat Rilhlin. while Mrs Fitz told the Girl with the VinMs how worried she always had Tieen dur ing the progress of her husband's fights. "Wait just a few minutes after the play is over, won't you?" said Fitz. "and in the meantime just watch me go and foil the villain." The play over and the stage cleared. Fitz had the forge lighted, donned u leather apron over his boxing togs, with the query, "Ever see a blacksmith in tights before?" and proceeded then and there to forge and stamp with his own name three dainty horseshoes, one for each of the girls. "Here, just look at this." be re marked, tossing one new-forged shoe across to one of the men of the party. "Duck! Don't catch it!" warned Murray, in a whisper. The shoe burned a mark on the floor f s it fell. The Intended victim recognized one of Fitz's practical jokes, and thanked his stars for Murray's warning. There is an atmosphere of jollity and good fellowship behind the scenes where the Fitz "Happy Family" per form that is found in few other circles of players. ' " ;'" If Fitz enters the ring again there are three girls who will mst to three horseshoes for luck, and will wager tons of Smyler's best bonbons on his success. Pawtucket Times, TO WRESTLE PARKER.
