THE SCI? ANTON TRIBTJNE--WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 14, 1894.

Is Confident That He Will Be Able to

VERY ANXIOUS ABOUT" FIGHT
Willing to Have It Come Off Within Six
Weeks from Dote-An Effort to Have
It Take Place In January
. or February.
In his dressing room at the Frothing
ham theater yesterday afternoon Pugil
ist Robert Fitzslmmons, middle-weight
champion of the world, entertained
representatives of the press and was in
terviewed regarding his proposed fight
with James J. Corbett for the heavy
weight championship of the world. The
specialty theatrlcnl company, of which
Mr. Fitzslmmons is a member, arrived
in town in the morning from Hazleton.
He and his manager, Captain Charles
Glori, of Newark, registered at the Wy
oming, and after dinner walked to the
theater, where the "Kangaroo" took his
usual daily exercise.
He looks as healthy as a spring trout
and savs he feels that way. In his
bare feet he stands 5 feet, 11 inches
and weighs now about 1C-' pounds, in
fighting costume. The only part of his
frame that assumes the build of a fight
er Is the upper portion of the trunk,
his massive Bhoulders and long sinewy
arms. He chatted pleasantly with a
Tribune reporter, mainly about his
coming match with Corbett, and he
says without any semblance of bravado
that he will win it.
"The fact that I am willing to fight
Corbett and will stake my money and
reputation on it," he sulci, "ought to be
prima facie evidence that I am confi
dent of whipping him. There Is no
brag about it at all; it Is simply a nat
ural confidence, in myself of my ability
to defeat him."
"Don't you think," asked the report
er, "that you may be underestimating
your antagonist's fighting qualities,
and that you will have a bigger con
tract on hand than you seem to be
Bob Is Confident.
"Never mind, don't worry, I'll lick
him," was the response.
"What is your personal wish about
fixing the date for the fight?"
"I will fight In six weeks from now;
I Just want enough of time to get in
training, that is all. For my fight with
Dan Creedon I trained only four weeks
and I could train In that time to meet
Corbett. You can see I have no super
fluous flesh on me and all I need is
exercise for my wind. I take an hour's
exercise every day and that keeps me
In trim muscularly, but to get my wind
right, I would have to do some running
and walking, or Jogging, anything you
please to call It. There is. nothing
builds a man for endurance, such as
counts in a fight, better than, say, a
walk of nine or ten miles at a good,
Steady gait, and on the return, run four
miles of that swiftly, then break Into
a Jog for a mile or more and switch off
Into a motion like this," and Mr. Fitz
slmmons got up und went through a
pantomime after the fashion of a
goose on n dead run.
He said that he does not think, to
use his own words, "that the light will
ever be pulled off In Florida." Where
It will take place is a matter that he is
as far away from knowing as he ap
parently could be. Corbett does not
want to fight before September, and In
the meantime something may develop
that would disrupt the plans for a fight
If the place were settled upon now.
,'' .". Jacksonville Doesn't Want It.
The city council of Jacksonville, Fla.,
recently rescinded the ordinance allow
ing prize-fighting, and that constitutes
a stumbling block. Mr. Fitzslmmons
would like to fight before the Olympic
club of New Orleans, which has offered
a purse of $50,000. Negotiations with
this club did not pan out, because Cor
bett refused to consider the offer when
It was not accompanied with ready cash.
He refused to allow the club twenty
four hours to stake the money, because
he was unfriendly to that club. Mr.
Fitzslmmons is responsible for these
The Edison Klnitlscope company of
fers $50,000 for the fight and wants to
have It take place in Mexico, where
there is no danger of Interference from
the authorities. The pugilists could
fight, it is claimed, before the instru
ment, and every movement, every blow,
and even the twinges of their muscles
would be reproduced. These instru
ments would be carried through the
country and a price charged for look
ing at the fight through them that
would reap a hnrvest to the stockhold
ers of the company. Mr. Fitzslmmons
favors fighting under Buch auspices.
He prepared himself for his exercise
and Invited the reporter to witness it.
In the center of the stage was arranged
nn apparatus for punching the bag.
He superintended the arrangement of
It and suspended the bug with his own
hands. The exhibition he then gave
wlas a marvelous one. Ills cat-like
quickness and agility came Into play
ns his long arms shot out and sent the
bag iupward against the boards as
quickly as the puffs from a locomotive
going sixty miles an hour. He gave an
exhibition of parrying, uppercuttlng,
forearm blows, shoulder thrusts, and
swinging blows that awakened in the
reporter's mind a thankfulness that it
was the bag and not himself that was
getting them; After an hour's vigorous
exercise, he dressed and went to his
He Is Easy to Manage.
Captain Glori, his manager, speaks
in the highest terms of Fitzslmmons off
the stage. His habits and conduct are
of the best and there Is no trouble In
mnnaglng him. He said that the pugil
ist is so anxious to meet Corbett that he
has given cast Iron Instructions to make
no engagements that can not be ter
minated at a moment's notice. He Is
with pale or sallow complexions,
or suffering from skin eruptions
or scrofulous blood, will find
quick relief in Scott's Emulsion.

of agreement between FitislmmonB and
Corbett in his . pocket and says he Is
going to make another effort to get the
fight to take plaoe either In February
or March, If he cannot, he Is willing to
wait until Corbett Is satisfied to ar
rirge a date. As Mr, Fitzslmmons was
ready to depart, ho predicted that the
fight would be settled inslda of twenty
At the Frothlngliam.
Last night Fitzslmmons and his com
pany gave an entertainment at the
Frothlngham to a large audience. The
gallery was crowded, the balcony well
filled, but the first floor had a- number
of vacant seats. The performance
opened with Juggling by John R. Harty,
Little Flo Perry, a mite of tender years.
who should not be allowed to apear on
the stage, sung, danced and recited In
a creditable manner, and Gordon and
Lick, musical comedians, did an enter
taining turn. Miss Nellie Franklyn
sang several character songs in a pleas
ing way, William E. Whittle gave a
good exhibition of ventriloquism, Bar
ron and Forrest, descriptive vocalists,
sung several songs and then, Howley
and Doyle made their appearance.
Howley is a Scranlonian, and was
given a hearty reception. The exhibi
tion of dancing given by himself and
Mr. Doyle was one of the best ever seen
in the city. Joe Hardman did a mono
logue that had some local hits In It, but
was coarse at times, and the Fltzglb-
bons family entertained with songs and
dances. They were the most creditable
feature of the evening's entertainment.
Cob Fitzslmmons brought the enter
tainment to a close by a Bplendld ex
hibition of bag punching and a Bpar
ring bout with Con Heardon that was
so tame that the gallery protested In
long continued whispers. Fitzslmmons
Is quick, but his work with the gloves
against Iteurdon did not srive the au

Ejectment Suit to Determine Owner
of a Property of That Size.
INTERESTING LEGAL BATTLE
Distinguished Attorneys Who Are Trying
the Caso for Plaintiff nnd Defendants-Case
of Moran Against Leon
ard Will Go to the Jury Today.
A legal battle that will prove most
Interesting opened In court room No. 3
before Judge Gunster yesterday after
noon, and in all probability will occupy
the attention of the court for several
days. The action Is one In ejectment
and Is brought by the Mutual Life In
surance company against O, S. John
son, the coal operator, and Mrs, Cath
arine Wlnton to obtain possession of
twenty acres of land in the Thirteenth
ward of this city, which Is valued at
upward of $50,000.
Mr. Johnson Is mining the coal from
under this land in accordance of a lease
with Mrs. Wlnton. The plaintiff com
Dany Is reDresented h ritv Solicitor
Torrey and Attorney h' man, of Phil
adelphia, and the deft dants by ex
Judge Harding and ex-Attorney Gen
eral H. W. Palmer, both of Wllkes
Barre. The cause of the present action
is briefly as follows:
All Due to a Loan.
Away back in the seventies the Mu
tual Life Insurance company lent a
sum of money to A. B. Dunning and
took as security for It a bond and mort
gage on his property at Elmhurst, then
known as Dunnlngs. W. W. Wlnton
was security for Mr. Dunning on the
mortgage. The debt was not paid and
the property was sold, but sufficient
money was not realized to pay the
amount due the insurance Company,
and it began proceedings against Mr.
Wlnton to compel him tas security to
make good the deficit. The Green Ridge
land now in dispute was levied on as
his property and sold, . the insurance
company becoming the purchaser.
It never obtained possession of the
property, as It was claimed that It was
not owned by W. W. AVlnton at the
time the sale was made. It is con
tended that W. W. Wlnton owed his
wife Catharine a lnree sum of "nnev.
and that some time prior to levy
made at the Instance of the )ae
company he confessed Judgmt,.. .o her
and the property was sold to satisfy the
claim, Mrs. Wlnton becoming the pur
chaser. This sule, the plaintiff will en
deavor to show, was a fraud. But little
testimony was heard yesterday, and at
4 o'clock court adjourned for the day.
This morning Mr. and Mrs. Wlnton
will be put on the stand.
In the main court room, before Judge
Archbald, the .suit of J. J. Moran
against B. E. Leonard was tried yes
terday. Moran sues to recover for
work done In erecting a brick stack for
boilers used to heat the Holy Rosary
church buildings at Providence.
Mr. Leonard refused to pay, for the
reason, as he believes, that his contract
did not provide that ho should have the
stack erected. His contract, he says,
was to provide the boilers and a build
ing to cover them, nothing else, and he
believes that Mr. Moran should apply
to Rev. N. J.- McManus, the rector of
Holy Rosary church, for his pay for
the stack. All of the testimony had
been heard when court adjourned for
Mr. Moran is represented by Attor
neys II. M. Hannah and T. J. Duggan
and the defendant by Major Everett
Warren and Attorney C. H. Welles.
The case will be given to the Jury this
.Mills Against Holthara.
Hugh Mills, of New street, was the
plaintiff In a suit tried before Judge
In No, 2. Thomas Holtham, a Penn
avenue wholesale liquor dealer, was the
defendant. In 1892 Mr. Holtham con
ducted a hotel on Capouse avenue and
employed Mills to do some work about
his home, at Green, for which the
plaintiff claimed he was entlttied .to
As an offset to this bill the defendant
alleges that Mills obtained food and
drink at his hotel far In excess of what
the wages claim nmounted to. The Jury
gave a verdict for the full amount of
