to take up his lecturo tour, but re
mained at tho Waldorf. Ho announced
that ho was going to cancol all tho
lctturos ho could nnd fight the detrac
tions that have risen against him.
lie made a start on tho latter part of
this program by appearing boforo n
meeting of tho Explorers' club, which
has in hand tho question whether or
not Dr. Cook really d,td climb Mount
McKlnley back in 190(i. Dr. Cook
wanted to know whether any charges
against him had been (lied at tho club
that he had not made the climb. Tho
doctor said that ho wanted to nnswer
such charges if they had been made.
If they haven't bcon regularly filed, ho
didn't want to put himself on tho do
foiiBive by producing his proofs. He
wnB told that no regular charges ban
been preforred, hut tho qitostlon hav
ing arisen as to his claim through tho
recont statomonts of tho guide, Bar
rill, nnd others, an investigation was
in progress with regard to tlijat ques

JEFFRIES ON WAY TO AMERICA
Must Fight Johnson or Admit He Docs
Not Intend to Re-enter Ring.
Now York-, Oct. 18. Jim Jelfries
w,ill bo compelled to make a match
with Jack Johnson for tho heavy
woight championship of tho world or
admit that bo docs not intend to re
enter the prizo ring. Jeffries Is on tho
Lusitnnin, which will arrive hero
Thursday morning, nnd' has promised
to make arrangements for tho big
fight without further delay. Johnson
will be In Chicago probably by tho
end of the week and says ho will
bo ready to sign articles and post n
forfeit to go as a side bet.
Johnson's victory over Ketchel, the
latter being knocked out in tho twelfth
round, has put tho pugilistic situation
squarely up to Jeffries.
Ketchel did his best, under over
whelming odds, but that was about
all. Tho fact that he knocked John
son down In the twelfth round showed
that ho had his punch with him, but
that he could not land' It on tho right
spot, becnuse of tho negro's clever
defensive tactics. The way Johnson
cut loose his attack after being
floored showed that ho did not have
any yellow streak and was a slugger
as well as a boxer.
