In regard to the proposed match be

The sensation in pugilistic circles is
the fact that the California Athletic Club
has decided to nut up a purse of 12,0,000
for John L. Sullivan, holder of tbe "Po

Jackson to oattio lor in September, the
match will create a great senMation, and
a fortune at odds of 2 to 1 will be wa
gered on Sullivan if he faces the scratch

doubt that he will do so, for the purse
he is to contend lor is the largest ever
offered for two men to battle for.
