NQU!Rffl, WANT Ab& BRING RESULTsJ THE BUFFALO ENQUIKER; TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1900. ENQUIRER WANT ADS BRING RESULTS." l- . ;i: r HOTSPUR'S COMMENTS I ON SPORTING SUBJECTS. "asr'taf aj!, WHataaaa.aa a . m aaa - HOW BOXING COMPARES There Is Not One-Half That There Is There has been mneli hullabaloo and shouting over th slugyiuj; of Referee Charlie White in New York City the other night by an excited and ruffianly second, because the latter thought his Stum "Was beini; discriminated against. .tTh: newspapers anj the writers who fire inimical to boxing and the .stuffed glove sport came out with long tirades against the ?iin' and Mated that "it was the last r.a'u in t lie roffni of the boxing 'Came." They stated that a riot was narrowly Averted by the police, and they dwelt long and empiw i'-ally on the dubbing of a few .spectators by thos.e same spoliae officials. The whole truth about the matter is that an excited individual, without cause r warrant, a man who does not live ii-this Sti'.te, became so enraged and excited at what he thought was an injustice to his principal, that lie punched the referee good and hard. It was a dis-.graceful act. and the act of a bully :md coward. Such things happen so rarely, however, that the following special dispatch from Albany to the Rochester 'ter beyond vm-ds for the repeal of the Horton law, appears ridiculous: Next Thursday the Lewis bill, which re-k Seals the Horton Boxing iav, will come up lefore the Assembly. Mr. Lewis' bill Is oertaln to be passed. If there were any oabts of Its success; after the favorable report of the Codes Committee they were re-Qoved by the disgraceful proceedings of Friday niirlit at Uie Ilroadway Athletic Club of New York? t The brutal assault committed on Referee jWhlte, with (he attending scenets of row- Ittyism made a iteep impression on a num-:ber of members who were w avering in their , anpport of the Lewis bill. Up-country . members who were inclined to be luke-'warm have been urged by their constituents to wipe the repudiated Horton ' law ffthe books. JPnbiic opinion is so strong !n favor of the repealing measure tliat enough members ave been brought Into line to Bend the Lewis bill to the Senate with a good majority in its favor. "Prize fights pure and simple," said a prominent Assemblyman tonight, "have become so common- under the Horton law that the order-loving public is simply disgusted.. When the men who manage anil Second! the fiehters cannot even put up with a decision against their man when he is clearly beaten, without committing mi assault on the referee, the boxing game is , certainly in a bad way." As 1 said before, the assaulting of Referee White was most, unjustifiable and the act of a coward, but at thy same time I fail to see where the boxers or the crowd there that night should be to suffer for the actions of a j rowdy; I wonder if the correspondent tvhft wrote that sycophantic message ever heard of a riot on a race track where the crowd rushed up and slugged the judges and tried to lynch them. Did he reail of the assaulting of Dan T. Murray, well known in Buffalo, by ex-Starter Curley Brown and the ruling off the turf for life of the same Brown? Was there a bluff to stop the racing jrame because of a fight in the grounds of an association? Hardly. If some scheme could be devised ruling out of, boxing clubs for life men of the Don- 1 nelly stripe who hurt the boxing game by such rowdyish actions it would also be better for the sport. I wonder if that correspondent ever heard of a free-for-all fight between spectators and players on a baseball field and the slugging of an umpire.. Only last year, in lN'.lii. over ten umpires were 'Unmercifully punished by enraged plar-I ers-and two of them were in the Western League, one in Detroit and the othfcr," I believe, in Kansas City. What is the matter with the assault made on Umpire Sam Wise of this city, who officiated in the Eastern League last year," and I think the same assault was ' made by Rochester players nt that? But I heard of no bill being presented to the Legislature to stop baseball games! hppnitco of the nvfl vish netinn il' o ' few players. Did that correspondent ever hear of a crap on the football field, where stu- ; uenis ui rival colleges mm supporters i i the different teams created a not -and , it rough-house scrap? If he never did ho ) ought to read up a few. Over ten id' i those disgraceful exhibitions took place last season, and still football is not teing s discriminated against on account of the actions of a few rowdies and drunken Students. What about polo, basketball, rowing races, lacrosse and many more games that need not be mentioned here? The teal truth of the matter is that there re certain individuals so filled with crtpplng tendencies that they would cause a mix-up and trouble even in -. Sunday school class. They are possese.i of a fighting devil, and sonic of then; of three or four, and they are never tiappy as when creating trouble. But be-tftnnua ihMO men nttnoh themselve-s to different branches of sport and continue i their dirty tricks that is no reason why j the sports should be ruled against and discriminated against by a lot of farmer " 'statesmen who know nothing about tne same sports. That boxing is the cleanest of all sports there is no denying. This is proved by the fact that more money is wagered all over the world on a big boxing crftatest than on any other sporting events Right here in Buffalo hundreds of dollars change hands on each boutstill, beyond a few kicks from the disappointed bettors, nothing has ever Koen done to harm a referee who do- iAeA awav their money. Over l.miu fistic scraps have been held In this city and not one referee nas ever neon as saulted in the least, eitner in tne ciuo : house or outside of it. The onlv other instance that I know Of was when George Ryder of this city Officiated one night in Olean. He decided against a negro boxer and the latter punched Ryder in the face. The -police arrested the negro and he was heavily fined, but when it is taken into consideration that over 1,000 contests are held annually in this country and of that number but one or two are dis-;tCed by rowdyish actions of spectators or seconds, then it can be seen how thoroughly ridiculous is the statement made that "the boxing game is doomed on account of the disgraceful actions of those who attend the same..' ,(j ESDALE - i:'-:'' - V VARIOUS OTHER SPORTS. , - K of the Trouble at a Baseball Game, tion or Lacrosse Match. ! How Haley Whipped Corbett. Patsey Haley, the I tiff.ilo bantamweight boxer, despite the fact that he has lost the last nine on- of ten battles in which he engaged, is very popular with an classes or spoiling n en tnSit only m this, his home city, but ii Boptjjm. Chicago, New York. Cincinnati- land other places where he has givei exhibitions of his c leverness. Haley hf.s now! attached himself to James J. rbett's training quarters and it leads Charles 1 O'Hara. the New York sporting writer, to tell the following story abort Haley, when he was once before a nember of Cor bett s training corps. "When Corbett came back from West "1 uSed to Baden Springs," said Haley go up to the Lenox Clul putting on the finishing where he was touches to his training, and we would b x a; few rounds every day. One day we mixed it up livelier than usual, and in tiying to avoid a punch, ducked into a stiff onejthat landed fairly on my chin. It ser t me down, and I was out for about fre rjiinutes. A short while after I walkekl into the office of the club and O'Rourke, Maeins and several others were in there! O'Rourke asked me how I was getting fpn with my boxing, and it occurred to mi? to joke a little. Well, I'll tell yolu something if you promise not to say anything about it, and, of course, they promised. You see it was this way, I exOlainied to them, we were boxing a littl? hard, and I hooked a stiff one on Jin's jaw and it shook him up fiercely. V nen we clinched he fell forward on me as linij!) as a rag. I was afraid to sidestep for fear he might fall down, so I held Mini up. Of course, in a few minute; hO recovered, and when he regained his senses I whispered in his ear: 'Brace up; now, Jim, and stay away for a while, and you will be all right again. ' I don' ; think anybody saw the punch come off. and' don't you say anything about it an! I Won't.' My listeners believed it, and in. a short while reports were circulated thi'ouglt the building how Patsy Haley, the boy wonder, had knocked out Jinx Corbett.!; They did not hear the full strength of the story for a fuil half hour when Corbett entered the room and explaiped it all. After that the bar boy was kept busy for a long time coming up ahd going down the stairs carrying a tray of wet goods." Frank Erne's Future Plani Frank Erne, the lightweight boxing champion of the world, arrived home from Chicago last night and was about town with a party of frietids for several hours. He stated to those with whoux he conversed that Jack Daly, the -Chicago lightweight he boxed last -n eck, will whip more men than will whip him.j : "He is good and stronk? and a hard hitter," said Erne last night. fj'Ite is not any too clever, but he mates up for that by his willingness to iighti He Ought to make a good card for rliis city: -with, say, a 'man like Spike Sullivan or Jack O'Brien." Krue said that his nest ring battle would, no doubt, be with Joe Gans. "Bobby Smith went on to New York and did not stop over herel in liuffalo. I told him to nail the match right away. I signed with the Broadway Athietic Club 1 he day I went to Xe York to meet Jack O'Brien and stipulated only that mv opponent must be thef winner of the Sullivfln-Gans fight.

Ion the Balti- will stick to Why the Horton Law Is All Right. One of the very few patters 'printed in this State which favors tle retention of the Horton law and is a Lewis' Repeal bill, is the NeW York Telegraph. Editorially, 4nd tin ! other wavs. this newspaper com s to the front with arguments conclusi e ana piani e best of its o with sport. that thelaw is one of t kind winch ever had to . In Sunday s issue an espe ially emphatic editorial was printed on as follows: the. law. It is It comes from Albany (that the nnti-the Legis- Horton bill will not get through latrtre. If the legislature is at all wise. The Horton the prediction will be vcrlflejl bill is one or tne rew laws limiting sports which has basis In common sense. , It may be set down as a fact that Iboxipg contests will he had whether In defiance iof the law or with statutorial permission, 'l'hus much the history Of the ring in tjhe past proves, irantinc that sparring contests are an evil It is better to regulate an qvil than permit it to run its course in quiej. It is ant to be much worse lr oovere But,'! boxing pul'lie or pri mutches do not constitute vate evil. Athletic sports of all! kinds have a tendency to mane men temperate, and cause them to take care of their pu tneir puysicai being. Prior to the days of John L. Sullivan there were few athle'tlc clubs in the country, and more drunkards in proportion to the population Dy 40 per United States has no city cent. Now the of consequence that does not possess one uu.n'intli ,n r ml to be a. r more atnletlc member i and to compete with others one njnst be ;healthy and maintain nimseir in agooa condition. Boxing has developed a set Iof sound, vigorous Americans, and. incidentally, dt may surprise the up-State members of the Legislature to know a set of Americans who do not now call upon the ready gun or knife when in difficulty. Tersonal encounters of a deadlr nature are fewer because frictions are settled otherwise, and because when men are confident In! their ability to protect themselves .they do not lose their temper so easily nor resort so freely to lethal weapons. The anti-Horton bill cannot be buried teo deeply. I i All Want to Meet Sharkey. The local manager of 'Jim Jeffords, the California heavyweight boxer, who is training at East Aurora ifor his coming battle with Ed Dnnkhorsf at Cleveland, called at The Enquirer office this morning to protest against the rumors going the rounds that biff Jim Fitzpatriek of Olean had been selected in place of Jeffords to meet Tom Sharkey in Detroit In a ten-round go. I li "I signed articles a week ago for Jeffords and Sharkey," saidi the manager, "and here they are. They call for a ten-round go with a guarantee: of so much money. Now. I don't think that Jeffords will defeat Sharkey, 1 but I do know that he will giTe him a very warm battle. Any man who canistaiid in front pf the Sailor for ten rounds must be pretty near all right, and I am thinking tnat jenoras is tne ooy wno win n" it. 'I hare signed articles! with Charlie e 1 tt . 1 .... rti..!u c ,1.:.

Jirii Kinney is manager for Kitzpaiyick, and he claims to Knovr- nothing about the same. There are other rumors afloat also that Fitzpatriek: is to fight in R rad- ford.

Albany, Feb. 13. While Assemblyman Menon . E. Iyewi is anxious to put an end to sparring exhibitions in this State. Assemblyman Benjamin A.;-k of Sr. Lawrence County would promote them as a source of revenue to. the State. With that end in view he has introduced a bill that provides that a domestic incorporated athletic association desiring to conduct sparring exhibitions with gloves of not less than five ounces in weight in a building owned or leased by it for athletic purposes, shall procure a license: from the State Comptroller, which is to cost J?.") a year, but before it is issued the dub must file a bond of $.".(MJ0 to guarantee the payment of all fees prescribed. : These fees consist of a tax of 10 per cent, on the gross receipts of each spar- ' ring exhibition held and hall be paid : by the association at the time of the ex-; hibition to some person designated by the Comptroller to receive the money. The pgent of the Comptroller is to be on hand at the time of the bout, and is to have authority to examine and investigate the books and papers of the association and ! is also to be permitted to bo at the door ! where the tickets are received. A failure to pay the tax or any attempt I to commit fraud in evading The payment jof the full percentage, will be sufficient cause for revoking the license. The ! moneys .collected are to be held -subject to distribution by the Commissioner of Agriculture among the agricultural societies, the same as are the annual fees received from racing associations. FAVORITES LOST AT HEW ORLEANS. Excellent Sport Witnessed at Oakland Geyser Beat Zoroaster. Only two of the talent's pickings land-1 at New Orleans yesterday.
