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
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

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
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
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'

OMAHA , Feb. 10. 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
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. Harvard , though not
a member of the association , is under agree
ment to play wUU YnUj according to the

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.
