A llcklo article , Indeed , Is the American sporting public. This is being exemplified by the beautiful lombastlug .llm Corbott is Just now receiving on all hands. It has grown to bo pretty nearly an unanimous opinion that Jim U not exactly the stulY , and many of those , oven , who wcro fulsomely adulatory In his behalf , Just previous to and for months after his snap with John L. , have uncorked their vials of wrath and are pourIng - Ing them mercilessly upon his devoted head. John B. McCormlok , "Macon , " an old-time friend of mine , and ono of tha best posted and most entertaining sporting writers in -the - world , la speaking of the prospective light between Corbett and Mitchell , says : "I bear Mitchell no malice , and I'm not stuck on Corbolt by any means , but ho Is an Amei- lean , and when it comes to an international contest , 1 shinny on my own side every time. " You ask what has brought about this gen eral ruvulslon of sentiment ? It is the fact that this is a lighting era unexampled in thu history of the ring , and Corbett has mani fested such an egieglous dcslro to cling to the title of champion of America solely for the purpose of advertising his theatrical schemes , that all these who have a claim upon him as the premier exponent of the great game of hit , stop and get away , have nauseated. They do not want their Idol to masqucrado behind the footlights witn thu title snugly tucked away in his inside pocket. This might have ans'vered all well enough in the days when championships wcro de cided for less money than it now requires to train a tlrst-class pugilist , but it Is decidedly dctrop in these times of colossal purses and when contests are pulled off almost dally with perfect immunity from the rigors of the law. If Corbott prefers to bo an actor , let him retire gracefully from the prize ring , and not keep scores of good men waiting to test the Kcnulnene&s of his claims on superiority until lie gobbles up all the shekels there are in the histrionic lay. The fact that there Is a fortune In the theater for Corbott in nowise interests the followers of the P. H. What they want first , last and every tlmo Is to sea thu best man win , ami as often as Is consist ent with his health and condition. As for myself , personally , 1 like Corbett , nnd I think him one of the greatest fighters who ever donned thu modern i-estus. scien tific to n superlative degree , quick as elec tricity , brlmlng ever with vitality and a tac tician of the very best school. In this every man who witnessed his terrible and hideous assault on the poor old enervated big fellow in the twenty-first round at iscw Orleans last fall , will bear mo out. Again , Corbott docs not .savor of the old type of fighters. Ho is fairly Intelligent , dresses well at nil times , and will i' < as3 current In any sort of an as semblage. While , as I said before , I consider Corbctt a marvelously able follow , I am fully satis fied that there is In existence'many men Just as good , nnd probably a number who are better. Ho will convince mo that ho is of a llttlo higher grade than most anybody else , when ho Jumps In and trounces some such man as Mitchell , Jackson or ( Joddard with the facility ho showed when ho punched out the Boston rcmluisccnco. The great mistake Corbott U making Is holding on to the title of champion llgnter. It would DO a display of that very good sense he claims to be supplied with , that would brook no disputing and booot him In the esti mation of the American public ultltudlnously , If he would renounce the anything but en- pobllug profession of a flgutcr , and stick to BENNISON BROTHERS Still greater reductions than ever.

This would also give Fistiaua an umvhlppcd and unwhlppable heavyweight ehaniplon , something she has never yet gloried In. In 'dilating on Corbett's present pose , I cannot do better than to further quote Me- Cormlck : Corbett , I see , is to take no further notice of Pat Sheedy , be cause Shcedy is a bold , bad man. This smacks too much oC "There now , you devil ! " Miss Nancy Ism to bo in good cham pionship form , i have known Pat Sheedy for a good many years and I have always found him a fair , square man , with the cour- agn of his convictions and the pluck and manhood to assert them. Ho and I differ as to Cot-butt's status as a lighter , but when Corbett declines to take notice , in a sportsmanlike manner , of his assertion that ho proved himself "a sure thing gambler' ' by backing Sullivan through his brother in California when he was about to niHut him in New Orleans he shows conclu sively that hu has the weak side of the argument. Among the dead game sporting men of the country Pat Sheedy's word will go where Jim Corbett's note will require substantial endorsement and when ho dud- Ishly asserts that he will take no further notice of Sheedy's charge ho virtually admits the truth. I would , for the credit of the ring , that U were otherwise , but I feat- it is not. Jim has taken a leaf out of the book of a well known sporting publisher and while so doing may Keep him from goinc broke it will never satisfy the American public that its present flstio champion is a man who will , like Macbeth , stake his all upon the single cast of a die. Mr. Corbett is built on lines that are "not that way. " ThTo is no more interesting class In the code of Iho pi-i/.o ring than the welterweight , notwithstanding the fact that the heavy weight representatives are everywhere the most attractive cards. Human nature is fond of danger and excitement , and of course v.oiihl rather see a couple of giants struggle for the mastery than a pair of pigmies. But , when It comes right down to the actual beau ties of a stubborn contest , commend me to the Intermediates. Up to date. 1 believe there has never been a world's champion welterweight , but it looks pretty much now as if the missing quantity was shortly to be supplied , say almost anywhere within the next twelve month. There are no Ic s than live likely candidates for the honor , and the entire quintette is now under the protection of Undo Sam. There is Tommy Hyan , the Chk-agoan , and undisputed champion of America , and Billy Smith , the Bostouian , who is coming fast. Thcso are the native aspirants. Australia , that hot-bed of pugilistic wonders , lajs claim on Tom Williams. George Dawsoa and Tom Treaej.tho other three. Neither England nor Ireland Is in It. Four of these men are already matched , Hyan and Dawson for March 1 at Now Orleans , and Williams and Smith at Coney Island for the 17th. Thus the lin.i l.t > at in the world's champion race Is between America and the southern con tinent. They say Hyan will whip Dawson and Smith will treat Williams with the utmost consideration , but that remains to be seen. How do the men stand Well , Uvnn has never lost a slnglo battle , nor even come anywheres near it. Dawson has been de feated twice , once by Tom Williams and again by a New Zealand middleweight. Still it would bo hard to draw a line from that , as Dawson has whipped about as many and about as good men as Hyan ever has. Dawson - son is of the cyclonic lighting school , while Hyan partakes of all the characteristics of the once greatest lighter , ban-Ing Tom Sayors , the world over knew , and that is Jack Dempsoy. Ho grows fat punching rushers , let them ba as big and strong and formidable as they may. On the other hand , Dawson's Irieuds claim that Hyan's style is Just what the antipodean most delights in. They say It gives him a etmuco to utllizo that Imaginary kidney - ney blow of his. Ho always makes it count In a long struggle. I'll warrant you , though , live times out of six , when ho makes a sash' shay at Tommy's kidney , Tommy's kidney will have Just gone round the corner , and In stead Mr , Dawsoa will get u killing jab in the luce. Hyan , too , is a peacock in a pro longed controversy. , Hu must win. Tom Williams is tb , same sort ae bis congener , Dawsoii. He put the latter out In the most Ostrich Tips ' C ' 28' Bunch.

Smith of Boston is of the Australian species. Ho lights lilto lightning from start to lliiish , and hits like a mule kicks. Trcacy is a ilrst-rater , too. Ho whipped Williams once , ho says , but 1 doubt It. That Williams whipped Trcacy is an historical fact. That's about all 1 know ot the welterweight candi dates. If Kyun whips Dawson anil Williams whips Smith , then it will bo Kynn and Williams for the world's championship , or vice versa. . . Up in Helena the sporting fraternity are anxious to know something of Billy Lewis' identity , and a Mr. HarbltiRO writes mo to know if I can tell him anything about him. I know this , at bust , and that is that his nom dc guvro is Billy Lewis , but his rightful Christian name is Albert Luwson. Ho spent the summer in Omaha , whipping Aaron Shcrroy in the Athletic club Into in the fall , then pulling out for Montana. Hero ho as sumed the name of Pursel , and beat a couple of their pots up there first big Burns and then Kid Gallagher , the pride of the north. They looked upon the Kid as a world beater and denounce. Lewis as a ringer. But that's all stuff. Billy Lewis is well known on the coast , and Is recognized as a lighter of no mean attainments. By tlio way.ho wants to eouio back here. It would bo a trillo premature to attempt for a day or two to give any additional in formation on the Davis-Ferguson llght.whidi has been booked for the club on the 'Jlst.

I will say this , though , by way of an appcaser , and that is if Davis and I'Vrguson fail to eomo to time their places will bo lllled by Danny Daly of this city and Billy O'Don- iic'll of Sioux City. They have been matched for a > ( ) < ) purse and will meet hero on the Jlst of the present month or the l ! > th of next. This latter match grow out of the recent Sioux City llasco.

To the Sporting Editor of Tins HUE : Wldo attention is being at traded among college men and graduates all over the country to the now rule , proposed by Yale and ratified in the recent meotlngof tlio officers of the Intercollegiate Foot Ball asso ciation , excluding graduate students from membership in the foot ball tpj.ms. Yale. Princeton , the University of Pennsylvania and Wesleyan are the parties to the agree ment , which. It Is understood , will bo ap plied to other branches of athletics hi the near future. The Ido embodied In the regulation is not a now ono. It has been In the minds of leaders of college athletics for several seasons as a jtosslblo means to check the growing tendency toward professionalism , 1. o. , the securing of an athlete by agreeing to pay his expenses at ono of the graduate schools for a certain length of time ; and this was the ground on which its adoption was urged. But college men look twice for the motive when Yale fathers a proposal , and the second glauco in this case leads color to tlio suspicion that the animus of the rule Is directed against the University of Pennsyl vania , an institution made up almost wholly of graduate schools , whoso team , largely composed of graduate students , de feated Princeton last fall and placed herself in the front rank of foot ball elevens. Tlio rule was adopted over a bitter protest fiviin her representatives. But interest centers in the possible de velopments at Yale and Harvard and In the effect the rule will liuvo on their relations to each other. At INOW Haven difficulties have already begun. A inns * meeting of the university lately held there for the purpose of passing upon the action of her representa tives in tlio association resulted in a vote of "no conlldenco , " this showing that the student body Is by no means agreed as to the wisdom of the move.

Going to leave Omaha rules of that organization , but as she would suffer more severely than Yale under the restriction , her graduate schools being larger , it is doubtful just how ready she will bo to embrace it. From any point of view the situation appears rather mixed. The condition which' renders the rule necessary Is to bo deplored. A university Is not a school , but a collection of schools , and a representative athletic team should draw for its material on all the departments , not on ono alono. Contests between the under graduate colleges will bo a little moro satis factory as a test of strength than matches between the various law or meuical schools. It is gratifying as well as interesting to note that intellectual contests between col leges are coming Into voguo. Two meetings between speakers from Yale and Harvard wcro held successfully lust year and excited much interest. This year a series of debates has already been inaugurated between Yale and Harvard and arrangements have been made for another between Yale and Prince ton. The first debate in the latter series will bo on the resolution that the peaceful annexation of Canada would bo beneficial to the United States. * Any persons who were omitted in the last annual distribution of college glee clubs will have an opportunity to make up their loss at the World's fair. The directors of the fair have set apart a hull in which the glee and banjo clubs of the various universi ties will bo invited to give entertainments during the summer months. Yalo's splendid now gymnasium was re cently dedicated and formally opened. Tlio cost of tlio building was $ ,000 , and it is said to ho as perfect in equipment as the latest appliances can make it. A now dor mitory , to bo built by Cornelius Vanderbilt whoso son , then a member of the junior class , died a year ago , will complete the quadraugie of buildings on the Yale campus and murks the beginning of the destruction of tlio historic "old brick row , " one of whoso hulls will bo sacrificed to make room for the new building. iMilrH for Ihuudl !
