PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 20.-(Special.)
Jack O'Brien, accompanied by his vile:,
stepped on a train at the Broad-street
station today. The conqueror of Fitzslm
raons received a rousing reception from
the big crowd assembled at the depot.
"This account of my challenging Jeffries
is untrue."' said he. "I did say that If
Jeffries voluntarily came out of retire

tween us. then I should be willing to, meet
him. These three offers from Reno, Nev ,
look good to me.
"Very likely I will accept the 515,500
pffer with Ryan. I am anxious to clear all
doubt about the middle-weight champion
ship. Then I'll take on Hart- I most rs
suredly claim the heavy-weight und middle-weight
titles. Fitzslmmons defeated
every man in the class except Jeffries.
Jeffries retired and the title reverted to
Fitzslmmons. As I defeated the Cornlsh
