bcforo the curtain and announced that he
offers ritzslmmotiA $35,000 for a finish fight ,
the entire sum to go to Fltzslmtuons If
Corbott falla to put him out In ten rounds.
Corbctt Intended to Isauo this challenge
January 17 , but decided to make It public
tonight. The challenge reads ca follows !
Itobort Fltzslmmons. Neither of us Is
qualified for oratory , and the public Is not
entertained by your wrangling- over what
Is probably nn honest proposition , more to
your advantage than mine- .
As n Inat Inducement to overcome } our
obvious reluctance to meet mo again , I
wilt make that tironosltlon stilt moro favor
able , thus :
Your pro tits from jour four greatest bat
tles were , Ilattla with Dcmpsey , $12,000 ;
battle with Jlaher , JIO.OuO , battle with Hall.
? S,000 ( the offered purse being W.OO ) , but
the club failed ) , battle with Creedon , $5,000 ;
making a total of $32,000. You made noth
ing out of your light with me , for , having
no hopu of winning , you sold your chances
for the purse- for 15 pjr cent of the protlts
In the icrlscope Therefore , 12,000 repre
sents your reward In gross for the live
greatest contests of jour life. Now listen
to what I offer.
A purse of $ i",000 stands ready toi \ of
fered as n prize for a meeting In the ring
with JOU. To tills 1 will add ? tOOOO of
my own , conditionally , that } ou airoo to
bo * mo to n finish. This makes yti.OOO. I
offer you this ontlro sum If 1 fall to stop
} ou In ton rounds , -with two ptovlslon.s , viz.
first Thnt the contest must continue tea
a finish , and
Second Th it I shall have something to
say lu regard to the appointment of a ref
eree who will not be unfairly prejudiced
In } our favor.
This Is mj flnxl pioposltlon. Take It or
leave It. If } ou really want to light It
oltcrs an oppoitunlty. Ill } ou want money ,
a sum Is leady exceeding- jour gloss earn
ing In live battles. If } oti want imputation ,
jou can makeIt better by meeting mo
than by meeting all others together. If
} ou doubt this , ask the public eacli , night
whole } ou i-xhthlt.
That Is my ultimatum I nm tired of
this ch liter I want vvoik , not lain.
Paper gnb'jllngs ilo not suit mo and abuse
is u coward's weapon.
If this mj' list offer , will not make you
meet mo like a man. It Is because } ciur
Caison biulses aic- still aching so pilnfully
that oven $ , n,0 < X ) cannot tempt } ou to en
dure their coitnln renewal. That Is the
onlj- excuse jou can now offer or the Ameri
can public will accept.
The tico of success Is hard to climb. I
nlmlt. It may bp that you are s itlsfled
with the sm ill fruit ilpenlng on the lower
limbs. Th ° great prize can only bo won
by reaching to where my name vvas , la and

board has rece-lved a letter from Henry

that there are no official world's racing
records. Mr , Mott began an Investigation
of the matter at the tlmo Kdvvard Me-
Dullle of I lost on tried for records on the
Willow Urovo truck at Philadelphia , ilc-
Uullle's remuneration depended somewhat
on whether ho succcede-d In breaking or
equaling world's records. HH did somii remarkable -
markablo riding , tie-Ing Stock of England ,
at 1:252-5 : for the mile. Several other
records were clipped , Thou UcDutllo
claimed pay for world's records. Mr. Mott
allowed the records nnd recorded them ns
ofllclal for thin country or within the juris
diction of the League of American Wheel-
When nskod whether ho would certify
officially that they were world's records ,
ho Paid he could not do so. Ho believed
them to bo world's records , but hnd no
documents to sustain his belief. Mr Mott
nnjfl he saw that It wan n hardship , both
for the promoter , who went to the expense
of providing pacer * , and for the man who
made the records , to ha\o the matter left
uncertain , luid'ho wrote to Secretary Slur-
rupler to Inquire whether there was not
some way of milling the matter , Mr.
Sturmeler nuggrsta that each organization
send htm Itn olllclal records on January 1
of each icar. Ho will then compile thorn
