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."

Knocked Out in Boxing Will Try
a Hand at Wrestling.
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.

FIGHTER FITZ AND FAMILY.
A Look Behind the Scenes at Their
:Stage -Work. :. .
''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.
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

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
"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
"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
"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
"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
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
"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

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''"

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

"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,
