was done In order lo glvo them com
plete control, nnd so neither could
say that there was any plun to give
him the worst of It.
"Jeffries, ut first favored the C'of

over the icpoitu that the fight Is Axed,
a report that will cause 'no nirprlso In

the chap to worry. It Is added! liow
ever. In tlio story, that (ileasou Is an

that the purso will bu divided nceord
lug to tlio terms of articles which sti
pulate (hat 73' percent guns to (ho
winner. I do not bellcvu (hat Johnson
made any proposition to Jeff for u 50

"I read the m tides and tho one
serious objection to them was raised
by Jeffries, who did not want to agreo
not to light before tlio Fourth of July.
Wo'polutcd out the link Unit. the-pro-motors

do with the fight than Tom .MrCnrej'
or 1'ugti Mcintosh, The con st Is to
be held under the Mile nia.i.r.teiiicnr
of Tex U'.ekard and myself.
"Tho story that i double-crossed
Coffroth In uny manner Is absolutely
falfo and will bo denied by him. I
did enter n Iild with Coffroth. Ho 'had
made up his mind how much money
he wanted to bid and w"o ngrced to
that. At n late stage of the proceed

opened, along camo ltlckard. He talk

1 saw that he had big Ideas and that
If I wanted to be In on the promoting

a meeting was suggested, and we got

Nothing will be decided until the en
tiro situation has been canvassed.
"I am .kick ami tired of this talk
about something fixed In this fight
Everything, we did w-ns uM!ti und

match savored of anything, wrong I
would drop It like a hot coal. I don't

(llcason says nlso that Jeffries wart
ed a chance to light before the Four lb
of July. According to Jeffries' prcsijit
plans ho will reach here about the
middle of January and proceed nt.onct
to I.im Angeles, where ho will com

Asked about tho flory that Johnson
has ilcmundcd two Judges in addition
in tho referee, one of them to bu n
eoloicil man, Cileason snld:
"No such arrangement was made

There's food for thought, all right.
