ABERG GETS OFFER
Joe Coffee of Chicago Guarantees
Graeco-Roman Champ $15,000
to Wrestle Nebraska Boy.
PLACE, CHICAGO OR OMAHA
Some information, which If true, la ex
ceedingly startling come over the wire
from Duluth yesterday afternoon.
The Duluth dispatch saya that Joe Cof
fee of Chicago, who will be remembered
In Omaha as one of Charley Cutler's sup
porters and one of the windy city crew
that was touched In the bank roll when
Job Stecher dumped Charley, has offered
Edward Dellvuk, manager for Alexander
Aberg. a guarantee of (16,000 to wrestle
Joo .Stecher In Omaha or Chicago after
May 1. Dellvuk accepted the offer.
Since last fall Aberg, who purports to
be the Graeco-Roman champion of the
world, has been howling about what he
could do to Btecher at Graeco-Roman
style and Alex and his press agent had a
merry time hurling defies and talking
In large figures, knowing full well they
were safe by putting the Oraeco-Roman
Now comes Coffee, who several years
ago waa quite extensively engaged In the
promotion of wrestling matches, with the
big offer to meet Btecher. It Is presum
able the arrangement la catch-aa-catch-can.
An offer of a 116,000 guarantee to Aberg
Is a chunk of dough. No mention of a
guarantee for techer la made. In fact
the uuluth dispatch does not mention
Htecher, it evidently being accepted that
Joe atand ready to meet any of them any
old time and undeg- any conditions.
It Is probable that C0i.ee, if he suc
ceeds In putting on the match,- will
choose Chicago for he place, as that Is
his city, unless Stecher would declare a
preference for Omaha.
