BUFFALO. N. Y. , March 7. Charley
Mitchell , tno English pugilist , was soon by
an Associated press reporter today , and bo
gave the following ofllcolal and definite ulti
matum to Sullivan :
"I reply to Sullivan's charge , I deny that I
am challenging him for the snko of getting
notorotp. Ho Hatter's himself. I don't require
it. I have boon before the American public
for eleven years. Ho calls mo 'that man
Mitchell' nnd sayi I don't want to light. Not
to copy him , I say that Old Woman Sullivan
has to do is to put his name to the articles
that tbo Olympic olub forwards him. The
plensuro it would g' ' rhim to thrash me , ac
cording to bis own accounts , ought to bo
satisfaction enough , outsldo of the financial
benefits derived thereby. It scorns Incredl-
, Wo that a purse of $ > , OUO is not enough
i to satisfy this man , who tried to gull
the Americans by saying that I am
such an easy mark for him. It is he himself
wno requires free advertising for , from all
accounts , a rotten show. I want this to bo
final , for I require no newspaper talk. To
proyo that I am no bluffer , I hers state that
1 will fight for the purse offered by tbo
Olympic Athletic club and will conform to
their rules. I will put up $3,500 deposit that
1 will forfeit to the club if I do not appear on
the night they llx for the contest. I
will also bet $2,500 moro that I am
procliimed victor. I uo not want
any ono to fix up challenges and then boat
aoout tbo bush whan a straightforward
- reply comes. I believe that what 1 have
herein stated will meet vlth the aprrovul of
fair minded and sport-loving public of
America. I will concede to Sullivan his
choice of rules. Yours truly ,
/vjltcholl / frequently emphasized his re
marks by doclarln ? that Sullivan was afraid
to meet him. "I hope that this official
challenge will briig : him to tormos , " ho con

Some of the leaders of the American colony

prominent American said : "Mr. Horn's ' ub-
sonco will bo greatly felt by all Americans.
Not conllnlng himself to' diplomatic ; duties ,
which ho so ably performed , ho was socially
most popular und bus been liked by those-
who hold political views dlfloront from his.
As Thavo never heard In French circles any
adverse criticism of' him , I fool sura that it
can bo said that he has been fully appreciated
bv those among whom bo 1ms boon'placod by
his ofllcial position. "
' General Morideth' Head , ex-minister to
Greece said : " 1 have known him personally
for thirty-llvo years. No United Status
minister over hero fulfilled his duties more
successfully. Ho came hero three years ago
with no diplomatic cnrierlonce. The success
of tils mission Is sufficient proof of his capa
bility and adaptlblllty. Ho Is universally
liked by people of all shades of political opin
ion and of every nationality. "
Mr. Harges , the banker , said : "Slnco the
time of General DIx in 18(50 ( , wheu I first
came to Pans , no American minister has
boon so popular as Mr. Kola. His treatment
of all with whom ho bos como in contact nas
boon uniformly kind/ his manner never
betraying brusqueness. Tbo most partisan
democrats cannot nut esteem him. Tha way
his duties have buon performed call for ap
probation from every body. "
Banker William Sollgman said : "Mr.
Reid is a remarkably able man and worthy
of any position to which ho may aspire. 'I
have nothing to expect from him , so my
opinion cannot bo considered biased. His
knowledge of the FroncU language and char
acter has enabled him to prove himself the
porfccticm.of a foreign minister. "
Bunker John Munio said ; "Mr. Hold has

Ho was largely Instrumental in bringing
