riellmlnuiy dlscubslon was sched
tiled for 3 o'clock tit the Hotel Al
bany. Jcffilcs and his managers
wcic punctual to the minute, but
Johnson elbowed his way diffident
ly through tlio crowd ten minutes
Into. At the table, ns the men tool:

Vernon at his left nnd Sam Derger
his manager, at his right, Johnson
sat with George Little, his manag
er; George Consldlnc, "Honest"
John Kelly. Sam Harris, Snm Nel
son, Hob Murphy nnd other woll
known spurting men.
Clicks Two Bed Dice,
Jeffries eyed tbc negro curiously,
but did not meet his glame. Jolm
koii was affable, but showed Ills
nervousness by his frequent grins
nnd his constant clicking of two led
dice, which ho carried half conceal
ed In the palm of his right hand.
Iloth principals posed for tlio
photographer, nnd when tlio smoke
of the llnshllght hnd cleared! got
down to business. Jeffries let Hor
gor do his talking, but Johnson
bloke In frequently on his manager
with suggettlons and objections.
Nevertheless It was remarked ns the
articles took form, that Jeftrrjs was
winning nonrly every point for
which ho contended.
It was agreed that tlio men woul'l
box "for the heavyweight champion
ship of the world." At this point
Johnson Insisted that the present
champion's name sliould prccedo the
retired, undefeated champion's
name In the written agreement,
To this Joffrles quickly assented,
llerger thcu suggested that the light
go to the club making the highest
tesponslble bid within the next 3U
dnys. I.lttle agreed, but Johnson,
Blinking his head dubiously, naked
that each bid be accompanied by n
13,000 forfeit as a guarnnteo of
good faith. Jeffries nodded nnu
lleiger gave his nssent.
"And hnvo a man tin ttio ground
with the coin," stipulated Johnson.
This was ugreed to. .
To Wait for Referee.
So far It had been easy sailing,
but when the question of a referee
was raised, the crowd followed the
conversation expectantly. Little,
for Johnson, wanted to namo his
choice. For tlio first time Jeffries
broke In. "Let the club that gets
the bid have a word," he ordered.
"They've as much at stake as we
have. Let It wait."
I.Ittlo was for arguing the point,
but Johnson was all conciliation.
"Well, let It go," he urged; "that
Is all right."
Tlio, number of rounds was next
"So far as I go," said Jeffries, "1
don't enro if It's for six, ten, twenty
or a bundled rounds; but I know
what the public will demand, and 1
am going to see that they get It
It means a finish.
! At this the crowd cheered until
Hob Murphy had to demand order.
Hut Johnson was not satisfied. lie
feared a San Francisco club, where
only 20 round bouts are allowed,
might get tlio bid, and In that event
Insisted 20 rounds should be speci
fied. "Then San Francisco won't get
the fight," announced Jeffries, de
cisively. "Make It 45 rounds or

There was still the rock on which
most agreements split division of
tlio purse, To the crowd's surprise
both men protested they were will
ing to fight winner tako all, GO and
40 por cent, or 75 nnd 25 per cent;
and on tlio latter basis It was set
tled. The side bet caused moro diffi
culty. Jeffries wanted to wngcr
120,000. Johnson, moro cautious,
offered 15,000, Little, his manager,
wnnted to lay the money at ring
side odds, "ns n business proposi
tion." As u compromise, they ngreed
to let the $3,000 nlrendy posted to
biiuie today's meeting stand, with
(5,000 additional to be added forth
"All right," assented Jeffries,
plaintively, "but 1 wanted that $20,
UUU." A great mar of laughter went up
from tlio crowd and oen Johnson
grinned. Hob Murphy, manager' ot
the Hotel Albany, was chosen as
temporary stake holder, the tlnnl
stako holder to be chosen by the
"No, BUh," said Johnson, "I has
n say wheic my money goes,"
"The club has moio to say than
either of ub," put in llerger.
"No man has moro to say about
my money thnfc I hasp" affirmed
Johnson, shaking his head et he
le!dd while protesting. i
Nevada or California j
As a finish flgbt had been agreed
upon it was the1 concensus of opinion
at the match makeis' table that ei
ther Nevada or California must get
the winning bid. With 30 days for
the bids to come In and 60 more for
the men to condition themselves In,
the weather nt the earliest would be
too wet In California nnd too cold
In Nevada. Iloth men agreed that,
to nccommodato the huge crowds

held out of dcors. llerger further
urged the necessity for ample train

Good L-ng Rest
That Kctchel needs u season of
rcalicment Is evident to ull who
havo watched the Mlchlgandcr's
rise to fnnio. sajs W. W. Lnngton.
He was undeniably wtnk In his last,
affair with l'apke, and, despite 111
increased poundage, ho didn't seem
ot be any better off phjslcally when
he figured In that deplorable one
sided bout with Johnson.
Of course he was overmatched in
strength by the blur neero. but even
at that, he showed absolutely no
rCBIStanCe. He W nlnatln n
I loee of putty when' Johnson was
yanking him off his feet In tho
clinches nnd tossing him around.
He had nil the earmarks of a flghtei
whose vim was nt a low notch, and
If he wont right along without try
ing the rest cure tho chances are
ho would fall a victim to the first
husky middleweight he encountered.
Ketchel deserves well at the
hands of the matchmakers nnd lov
ers of the game generally. He has
furnished some sensational finishes,
and when properly at himself has
Bhown gnmonesi, endurance and de
termination. Ho Is still very young,
and It would be taking nn extreme
view to say that he has shot his
bolt ns a rlngman. He should lose

inurements of city life, and there

Tho Heulonl Iloat Club will hold
n meeting tonight ut tho club house,
and, as tho annual election of offi
cers Is to take place, nil members
are requested to attend.
, The assessor is determined to tret
in the taxes. If vou have any due,
pay before the 15th, or ten per cent,

Now that Itellly and Cullcn are
ns good as matched to meet once
more, the volco of .the knocker Is
sure to boom forth, and rumors of
'fake and every other kind of dope
peddled out by some men 'who hne
only their own ends to serve.
In many cases the stories arise
through the deslro of some of the
smart Alecs' to make easy money.
They would give their best friends
tho "double cross" nnd laugh about
tho matter nftcrwnrds. They hnvo
been known to go to a friend nnd
nssure htm that the horse race or
fight, or whatever It was, was fixed,
nnd that such und such n hoise or
man was not trying.
Then when tho friend went
around placing bets on the real
"trjei" tho whisperer hnd emissar
ies who took every bet on his behalf.
Then thejace or fight came off. nnd
the alleged dead one, Instead or
i)lng down, showed ull kinds of life
Then the usual story was pitched
nnd a few phoney bets produced as
iiruoi oi me uxors own loss on the
event, and eventually the fall guy
takes his medicine and the rest ot
the bunch give him the ha ha sign
behind his back Oh, )cs. It's a
lovely gume certain men are work
ing In this town, nnd more Is the
pity that they enn't be induced to
leave In a hurry.
However, the last fight between
Hcllly and Cullen was as square n
go as has ever been pulled off In
this town, nnd there Is no doubt
that the next one will be the same.
Charlie Rellly was asked to
throw a fight In this city a long
time ago by certain parties, and he
tcpllcd that he had fought straight
so far, and would always do so.
Knowing Charlie to bo on the
square, tho writer Is convinced that
there will bo flo crooked work In his
fight with Cullcn, nnd that the best
man will win.
The date of tho contest may be
printed in another column of tho
11 u 1 1 o 1 1 n oday nnd other de
tails given. Mike Patton will, no
doubt, referee the go, and that
nlone srould be n guaranteo of u
good, fair fight.
Are Hard At Work
Out at the Maklkl grounds yester
day afternoon there was some fln
football practice, nnd the town team
went in for a strenuos bucking the
llnetlme that will fit them for their
future struggles against the Ma
rines. There was a fine muster of play
ers and the greatest vim wns put
into the piuctlcc. If hard work and
good coaching can do anything, tho
Townles should give the hnlf-wots
n much better tussle next time
they meet. Sumner has Infused n
lot of his own enthusiasm Into tho
team, and there Is a do-or-dle ex
pression In all of tho players' faces
Dill Cumpbell Is putting In good
licks on the coaching line, and his
efforts are much more appreciated
by the men. When It comes down
to signal practice the effect of the
good work of Sumner Is seen. Last
ufght, at a secret; lendcivous the
Town Team went through their sig
nal practice, and It was a treat to
watch them at work. Thertf Is no
doubt that the team has Improved a
lot, and It will surprise all the wise

Still If the lights nro properly
