Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 26, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta Football Player Who Has Been At- tracting Considerable Notice by His Great Playing Lately. BLAIR RUSSELL Elected Honorary President of Mont- real Victoria Hockey Club Latt Week. WHAT BECOMES OF 4 PRIZEFIGHTERS? Where Do They Go When Their Are Over? What becomes of all the fighters What do they do when their fighting days are over This is a question which has often been asked by those who linger outside the ropes, follow- ing fighters, only through the col- umns of the newspapers. As. soon as the fighter gets to the point where he can no longer interest his public, he disappears from the'sport, pages, and from the face of the earth. If he has been a thrifty squirrel, -salting down the easy money .when the salt- ing was good, he will not fall on evil days. If he has been a grasshopper, singing all the summer and travelling with the highflyers, it becomes an- other .proposition. The, fighter without. brains or bank a sad thing when cast on his small resources. He has ac- quired expensive tastes and habits he hear the "whang of the music and popvof the .cork." He wants to wear jewelry and loaf ;about the''.street corners he thinks the owes him a living and he rather looks to the good fellows with whom he spent his -money, to help him collect -that Then comes the awakening and the beginning of the descent. The end of that journey is the panhandler who works on the dark corners. "I was a good leiiow when I had they say. Some of the Wise Ones "Now, for a few of the men who will hive money when the improvident sons are eating snowbirds and drink- ing spring water. Taking them al- phabetically we begin with James Edward, Britt, the cream puff puncher who made an educated left win him a small fortune. Jimmy had few fights, as. records go now- adays, but he made every fight count and he invested his money wisely. At that James was no hermit cram he saw the white lights and he sang come-all-yees over the popping corks, but he had sufficient intelligence to buy a string of flats and 'now the wolf can howl and be disappointed. Next we have Tommy. Burns, a fru- gal soul. Tommy had a lot of luck and slipped through to what they call championship by. sheer fortune. He had a business man's head and sold his product in the best market. Tom- ing to establish a physical culture, sch'ool on the Muldoon order. This should be a great money-getter, and, for Bob's sake, let us hope that he. does not forget himself and walk in, with the wallop once in' a' while. Bob always did like to see the fat men tall. Many are Saloonkeepers Eddie Hanlon, most popular of all the boys turned out in the be- cause the squarest, cleanest kid of them all, has his little saloon in San. Francisco 'and friends enough to fill it at all times. He need not worry.. "Eddie was good to the folks." Jim. Jeffries lives auriy up at the. of Easy street. He earned .a lot of money, made a lot" more, and has a wife who will help him take care of it. Jack Johnson will never have any- thing, no imatt-er how much money he, makes. He is. a natural-born spender. Ketchell made some money and, in- vested some of it, not enough to put him in the Nelson class, however. Bat. Nelson is the boy who ha.s laid away change. Though he exaggerat7, his earnings a bit, it is known H.at he has enough money in- vested 1.0 take whole Nel- son and leave some over for the next generation. Jack O'Brien posed for a time as one of the wealthy fighters, but busi- ness reverses in the past five years have accounted, for most of the Quak- er's coin. He has some Philadelphia real estate. Tommy Ryan is another man who need not worry as long. as., peach trees 3loom. His peach orchard will keep the wolf'interested. John L. Sullivan left the r.inn took several benefits, need- ed some more benefits, and finally has and ;ias more money saved up at the pre- sent time than he ever had at any one time in his life. And of course, our dear old friend Tom Sharkey. Tom may have a tin ear, but there is no allov in the Shar .vent on the. water He done well theatrically speaking, key bank roll. He has every dollar he ever made in his the dol- lars glued together into a solid block. Jack Twin and Mike Twin, two no- ble Romans, .had no chance_ to my will be a millionaire if he lives up the great big purses, but He has the money-maker's instinct. Jim Cbrbett will never want for Sav't-Msg under the so long QC retains his ready wit and native abil- ity. It is, douhiful if Corbett. took any of his, money winnings out of the game ..with him, for he was al- ways a spender. His theatrical work has been quite successful, and should Corbett quit work tomorrow he need. tnot care how soon the bakers' com- bine put up the price of bread. The same things go for Bob Fitz- pick. they fought early and often and, by saving up every cent, accumulated enough to hold Sullivan family for a few generations to come.. Of course some of the fighters, hare been skipped. There.are others of them, who have done well, and then again there are the ones who played the grasshopper act, anh are how Win- tering badly. It is a charity not to mention the names of these men. They are endur- ing a long punishment, and perhaps simmons, who was always a thrifty the memory of the- dollars they burn- sort of a citizen. Bob says he is go- cd.sits up, with Says Johnson Will Get Trimmed t j. .Spokane, Nov. will give Johnson a worse beating than be did that boy from whom he won his first fight down in Los Angeles in 1887, when he scored in three rounds and carried.home a purse, of .His next fight may take longer but it .will net him tern thousand times 'more'' money." is the opinion of John Webb, "a business man" of Spokane, until re- boy's family who, though poor, were, proud and did not relish" the idea of developing a fighter. "One of his two sisters, now mar- ried to business men of Los came to my store a" short time after the second fight and drove me out of the back door with a broom, saying that her family resented our activi- ties in trying to make a pugilist out of the boy. But when we became, better acquainted there was iflany" a cently of Butte and before that a hearty laugh over our first meeting. resident of Los Angeles, who claims to be the pugilistic father of the' ex- boilermaker. "Jeff demurred ,at first when we .Invited him to the boxing club for 'a try-out with some of the Webb continued, "but he was finally prevailed upon for a 'go' and won easily. He put his opponent out in short order in the second fight, and it took more than ten minutes to re- vive the loser. His work became the talk of the town and soon got to the'tory." "When Corbett and Fitzslmmons were matched, Jeffries was taken on as a sparring partner by the former on my In, the first round Jeffries knocked Corbett down and then jumped through' ropes, saying he might kill the. champion. However, he went back when It wa's' explained that he was to let Corbett do the punching, saying: 'I can whip Corbett now and I'll be able to lick Fitz in two pears.'
