A Thi Hiax reporter called on Kd. Mo-fveowo Mo-fveowo Mo-fveowo this morning in regard to the proposed proposed Jackson Corliett tiKbt, and found a number of sports there discussing the matter. matter. They eaid thst ridicule hsd been thrown on the idea of raising f.i0,0OO in this city, but that those who spoke in snch a strain were ignorant of the situation. Ths aasoeistion had in its possession guarantees for $100,000 if necessary, and it was absurd for anyone to think that the money oould not lie raised. When asked point blank if he had heard anything more in regard to the light, Mr. McKeown stated that ha had reoaived a letter Irom Parson Davie, but the contents of this for reasons best known to hiaiself he declined to divulge. "Do you think the tight will take place here !" asked the reporter. "Take pleoe? Look here," he said, pulling pulling a bundle of bills from hi pocket; ' 1 II bet any man f 100 thst the fight takes place within 100 miles of Winnipeg liefura the 20th of June next. Thai's all I have to say."
