Chicago, Sept. Maddes the old-time fighter and manager of box- ers, himself in his time one of the clev- j erest light-weights in" the world, an- j nounces it as Ms opinion" that two; years- wjll -about.see the finish ofj Jack Johnson as the heavy-weight champion of the world. Madden can be credited with bring- ing out more good, big boxers than any man in the ring history, barring Billy Belaney. Ataocg the men he dis- covered, and developed were John L. Sullivan. Charley Mitchell. Peter Mai- er, 'Gus Ruhiin, Denver Ed Martin and several others. It was-Madden'who, first saw'the. merit in Johnson as aj fighter, which he became wise to whenj he matched -'Ed H'artin against the t Texas.black seven years ago.

Montreal Star today acclaims Pat Pow-. ers, president of the Eastern League, as 'the new prospective father of lacrosse and publishes his portrait as such on the strength of. the announced decision of some of the members of the committee pointed to revise iho lacrosse rules, to take the Eastern League baseball rules and adopt .-them to lacrosse-and present them to the "next convention as original rules. The Star says in part: "How gratifying it be to that grand roan of Eastern League baseball, who has brought the -rules to their present perfection to have la- crosse men cast their eyes at these rules. The'tribute which will be paid to him by the gentlemen who advert in all- seriousness to this plan of'having lacrosse baseball rules in future ought to be the crowning one of his existence. It will entirely over- shadow'the slight'sentiment of bitterness that has been provoked by the fact that .other men will pose before thousands of lacrosse enthusiasts unfamiliar with baseball as the originators of the r.uies.

Corbett New York, Sept. 10 days I ago two important heavyweight con- tests were held in this country in which were engaged as principals four men who are regarded as the runners- up to the championship, and yet in the opinion of the majority of experts neither of'the victors is of a class that would entitle him to a go with the champion. One of the bouts., the Kauf- man-Lang contest' was an even affair, and while the popular, verdict was given to the "Californian'it as the opin- ion of a great many good students of the. game that Lang made a wonderful showing, all things considered, and Chalmer, Sheuler, Bren- that had been a longer one, the Australian might have been re- turned the victor.

I. do not relish the idea of a negro champion, particularly when I know his were upon him through one of the greatest flukes in the boxing., Jeffries' con- dition during; the1 fight is-'an old-story now, of course. In Lang, I 'saw, what-I.1 considered a championship possibility, a white man. who with proper handling might de- velop into a great .fighter and qualify as a candidate for the highest honors in the game. I have -carefully -watched him work and. regard him as a, natural fighter. His knowledge of the finer points of the science of boxing is limited, but this can be developed with practice and a little more ex- perience.

'Not a "Real" Champion Now, to get back to the general im- 0 pression that neither of- these men is "classy" enough for a lookin with Johnson. I beg to differ with my [friends who mold popular opinion through the sporting columns of -the newspapers. The fact 'that Johnson is champion is what causes the great j majority to look upon him as a class j by himself. There is a wonderful magic about the word "champion" i that blinds many .to everything, but his best qualities, and after a pugilist .has held down the job for a while it jhas a sort of grown upon the public that because a man is champion he is unbeatable. No greater mistake was ever made. I know; I have been through th'e mill. We all. go down to defeat in our turn. Fitzsimmons won from mes Jeff beat Fitz, and finally the once great boilermaker laid down his dangerous at the end of the bout. He also says it would be hard to predict a winner in a finish fight Either one of these men' might have a good chance with Johnson. However, the only in- terest in colored boxers is confined at present 'to trying to find a white man capable of licking one of champion. As I have repeatedly stat- ed, I have no personal feeling against Johnson or any other colored boxer. It is .simply a case of pride in my own race, and an honest feeling that we must have somewhere a white man capable of winning back the coveted championship of the world. Nelson After XVoIgast Our old friend Battling Nelson, who was rather for a long time, has reappeared on the scene and feels that he has been alighted by Cham- pion Wolgast through the latter sign- ing up with Packy McFarland. The Battler claims Ad promised him first chance, and to bring the champion to terms agrees to bet on the the winner to take the entire and all. In announcing his plans for the future, depending largely of course, on the- result of his engagement with Packy, Ad leaves the Battler entirely out., of the picture. I am not seeking to take away any'The program takes in Frankie "White, credit from a pugilist who has climbed i from the bottom to the top as has Johnson, and I believe Jack is a good man as champions go nowadays, J do not look upon iiim as a really great fighter.
