Por a time (.hern was little prospect, of u3 getting together in the ring. Tom had an exceptionally high opinion of himself as a fighter and when asked 10.meet, me told the promoters that ho would do ro for SKi.OOO, win, lose or draw, finally Tom came down a peg and told Messrs. (iruom and Uibbs of the National club, which promoted the fight, that.he v;aa ready to take $12,-uUO. A set mini was out of the question so far as I)u� promoters were concerned, .so Tom finally gave In. and said he would do business on a percentage basis. On the night of April U, 1SUS, Shurkey. who was his own manager whoa it came to business mutters; Hil?y*Dehuiey, my representative, and Messrs. cirooin and Cibbs got, togel.Ii-er and, after a lot of wrangling on the part of Sharkey, the offer of tho National cluh was accepted. Tom's shrewdness got us (jr. per rent of the gate receipts instead of GO, as we �firsi figured. Sharkey said he wouldn't do business with the Oplympic club, as it had treated him unfairly in previous fights, but at. that. Hilly Kennedy had offered him 6a per cent of the gross gate receipts and a bonus if he would fight for the Olympics. This made (libbs mad. for lit: stated thai he had an agreement with Koo-nci|> not to offer over tin per cent, hut as rhe Olympic Club had broken h.s agreement * he would break his word and give us lift per cent., but. no bonus. �Sharkey was satisfied and so was T)elaney on my behalf and that day the articles of agreement, were signed calling for a round contest between us with 7.". per cent, oT the tJ."� per cent to the winner and -,"> per cent to the lower. Both of us agreed not. to hit in tiie clinches, and Alex. Oreggains and dim Chesley were named as the men agreeable as referee. Sharkey had kicked long ami loud ovor a California man performing the honors, but finally agreed on Grcggains. Trained at Oakland Neither Delaney nor myself lost any time getting into camp to train and the I next day *we moved to the Reliance j Club of Oakland. Sharkey went to Val- | lejo and had Tom Kennedy and Frank Hlairmore. I-Vh were ringing on Mr. Htaeey 8m It u l.eod were uniiei home of the bridi Young of Frank, moiiv. Air. Smir.li Baker, the man I had whipped in nine rounds, with him as sparring partners. Jack Stelzner and Brother Jack were my principal sparring partners. With Stelzner in my camp and Baker in Sharkey's camp, the promoters matched these two for a ten round preliminary to the big fight. Stelzner gave Baker a fine lacing for six rounds and Just, about had him knocked out when Jack unfortunately fouled Baker and was disqualified. While training. Sharkey wanted to show Ida friends how lit; was going to toss me around the ring and tried to place a bale of hay on a wagon, with the result-that he wrenched his back and for a few days it looked as if the contest would have to be called.off. As the night of the fight, drew near the fans began to lay their money and I was a id to 7 favorite and my friends leit $20,00i> with the late }iarry Corbelt. to wager on my chances. Was a True Sportsman Harry Corbett was one man in a million arid as dean and honest as the sun. My opinion of him was that of every other man. In fact, I bad so much confidence in the integrity of Harry Corbett that I told hiR brother Jim that I picked Harry as the referee of my fight with Jim Corbett. Sharkey did not lack friends a.nd backers, though, and tlie $1!0,00 in Harry Corbett's hands was covered and the night of the fight the betting was ; even money. The sailor's continual boasting that he would get me in ten round*;, his great, condition and the egging on by his friends particularly those in Val-lejo, caused the money to flow in on him. A few days prior to our meeting something happened at Sacramento j Calgarv Branch Has Corner on that almost caused a calling off of MM�. F. GAREAU 153Papineau Ave., Montreal. "For throe years, J sutVered great pain in the lower part of my body, with swelling or bloating, I saw a specialist, who carefully examined me and gave me several tunics to take, which did not help me.
