of Sheffield. Ootch wrote to Mr. Slever
and reserved no reply, sent a messenger

JEFFRIES WANTED I Al 9TR ALIA
Big rarse Will Be Hans; ts If He
Will Meet Johnson.
SYDNEY, N. 8. W Dec. 28. Almost
the sole topic of conversation here now
Is the Johnson-Burns fight and the trob
ability of getting James J. Jeffries to
emerge from retirement and fight the
new champion for the laurels tne Call
fornlan once held. Whether It will be
possible to arrange a battle to take place
at Ruchcutters bay between Johnson and
Jeffries Is not known, but certainly every
effort to do so will be made by 11ur.ii
Mcintosh, the fight promoter, -ado an
nouncea that he will leave for the United
States by way of England, January 2,
and offer a purse of SaO.OoO In an en
deavor to entice Jeffries across the seas
to meet Johnson.
That Mcintosh can afford to offer an
enormous purse for another championship
"go" Is shown by tha fact that the re
ceipts from the Johnson-Burns tlgnt ag
gregated J160.000. This amount. It Is be
lieved here, is the greatest ever taken
in for a single prize fight. Of this sum
Burns received $3,000 and Johnson $7,600,
Including 1.1,600 for his traveling and
Thus far 'Bill" 8qulres, the local
heavyweight, who thrice has been van
quished by Burns. Is the only man who has
lHsued a defl to Johnson, and tne big
Texan haa signified his willingness to
meet Squires for $10,000 a side. It Is
unlikely. In view of the Impression John
son has made here as a fighter, that
Squires will be able to find a backer.
Johnson Is In perfect condition and
shows no marks of the battle with Burns.
While his end of the purse for defeating
the champion waa small In comparison
with the amount received by Burns,
Johnson now Is enabled to rick up a con
siderable sum of money on the vaudeville
stage. He has been engaged by a Sydney
music ball for a term of five weeka for
an act consisting of bag punching and
the methods employed by him in train
ing. For the work he will receive $1,750
ier week. In February Johnaon will sail
or London, where he expects to fight
Ham I.angford, the American colored
heavyweight, on Derby day, before the
National sporting ciuo.
Burns also Is fn good condition except
for discoloratlons about the eyes and a
badly swollen Jaw. At first It wa
thought that the negro's heavy swings
had broken the white man's Jaw, but It
now turns out that It was only badly
bruised. The French-Canadian adheres
to the decision he made prior to meet
ing Johnson that It would be his last
flicht despite the result. He says he has
nuide during his fighting career $200,
000 and that this Is enough to Keep him
When Mcintosh sails for London next
week he will take with him the moving
pictures of the Johnson-Burns light.
ROIBKE WILL TALK SCHEDULE
Pa Goes to Chicago to Confer with
"W. A. Rourke, president of the Omaha
Western league base ball club, left Sun
day night for Chicago for a ahort trip and
took with him his draft of the Western
league schedule for 1D09. Tha schedule
committee consists of Kourke, liiggins
owner of the Des Moines team, and Hoi'
land, one of the owners of the Wichita
team. The meeting of the schedule com
mittee will not be held until February,
but Mr. Rourke thought he would like to
go over the schedule with Mr. Wiggins,
who lives In Chicago.
To make a schedule for the Western
league and to give all the teams a square
deal Is quite a complicated problem, in
some states base ball may not be played
on Decoration day and In some It is not
permitted on Sunday. These breaks in
playing dates upset the regular run of the
schedule, as all teams must be given a
chance on these "holidays and these special
occasions must be evenly divided.
It is a nrobable Omaha will open away
from home and in the south and will close
at home. While tWs Is not certain It seems
probable because of the more souinern
location ot lopeaa ana wicima.
FARMER BCR-NS HERE IX JANUARY
Dean of Mat Will Move to Omaha
and Wrestle on the "Ixtk.
Farmer Burns, the dean of the mat, has
written to the sporting editor of The Bee
that his moving day Is set for January 4.
He will transfer his residence from Big
Bock, la., to Omaha that day ana win
viTMila at the Auditorium January 6.
The old man had Intended meeting
Amerlcus on that date, but Manager Ulllan
of the Auditorium haa failed thua far to
come to terms with the Baltimore wrestler,
and the match may be between Burns and
Jess Westergard. the big Iowan whom
Burns believes some day will succeed Ootch
as the worlds champion. Or, If Wester
gard cannot come, then Charley Hacken
achmidt, who gave Burns such a tussle at
Mm Auditorium two years ago, may meet
k'-ph,. Warmer Intends to educate his chll
dren In Omaha and open a wrestling acad
emy. He will buy a home here later, but
rimt wants to rent. He may have en
countered some troubles during his career
of thirty-odd years aa a wreetier, dui ne

LOS A NO ELKS. Dec. 28. "There will be
r.o fight between Jack Johnson and my
self. They are not talking to me," said
the former heavyweight champion. James
J. Jeffries, to a representative of the As
sociated Press tonight when he was told
that Hugh Mcintosh, the Australian pro
moter, was going to offer $50,000 for a fight
between himself and the new champion.
I don't want the money," he aald. "I
am out of the game and the public might
as well understand It. I fought my last
fight some time ago and no amount of
mcney nor any Inducement anybody can
hold o"Jt would get rue into the ring again."
There was no equivocation about Mr.
Jeffries' answers to the questions put to
htm. Ho said that he was annoyed by tha
pet sit tent attempts to get him to agree to
fight, and that he would like to have It
made positive that there Is no way In
which he can be Induced to fight Johnson,
or anybody else.
Jeffries Is very fat and entirely out of

assoclatea In this city who ought to know
that he never could be gotten Into condi
tion to enter the ring even If he had the
inclination to do so.

Yes. this may be worth considering; If

able to suppose that Mathewson may go

the argument Is defective. Matty and Bres
