SIONED STATEMENT BY
JEFFRIES AND JACK
All Satisfied That Rickard Will Be
Good Referee Johnson Says He
It in Beit, of Condition.
"I will be In the ring and In the
best condition of my lite tho 4th ot
July. Tex Hlcknrd was selected as
refcrea and he still goes (or me, I
know I wllhget an even break, nnd
Hint Is all 1-nsk for." Jack John
"I Wa selected to referee the con
test between J.' J. Jeffries and Jack
Johnson on the 4th of July, nnd I
Intend to fill the posltlop on the said
day." Tex Klcknrd.
"I have been bothered enough over
this question of a referee. Hlcknrd
was selected at n conference, I do
not propose 10 nitenu any meetings
for a further conference and I don't
want the subject mentioned to me."
From a stntement made by James
J. Jeffries to Rickard at Howarden
nan jesterday morning.
The referee pot has been boiling
once more, and, although for several
days It looked as It Edle Smith of
Oakland might be named In place ot
Tex Rickard, resigned, thc,affalr was
settled once more last evening, ami
from the nbove positive statements.
It Is announced on all side that
Tex Rickard will stick to his Job,
says the Chronicle. Many disquiet
ing rumors of Intending changes have
been. flailing around Jqctbree or four
uays pasi, and ine return 01 lira
nrd from the Jeffries .ramp to con
firm or deny the stories was nox
iously awaited by a host of newspa
per men, who wanted to know once
for all what had been done nnd what
action was to he. taken.
Irlefly told, the story was to the
eff'ejt that Jack Johnson had llnally
withdrawn his objections to Kddie
Smith, who "was the original candi
date proposed by Sam llerger. repre.
seating Jeffries; that llerger had
agreed to the switch in referees, and
that Rickard wus .to withdraw from
Much ot this, so the story goes,
was accomplished at a conference
that wai held between Tex Rickard,
Sam llerger, Illlly Nolan and oiuers
Interested at the St. Francis Hotel
last Friday night, following the Jef
fries exhibition. It was thought that
the deal was as good as- closed nnd
that Rickard upon his return from
Rowardenuan would announce his
withdrawal and the nnhilng of the
Oaklander for tho post. Nolan Is
said to have Interested himself In
Smith's behalf nnd as a personal
friend of Johnson urged the cham
pion to withdraw his objection.
Conditions changed rapidly ester-
day afternoon nirtl last night, how
ever. Rlcknrd, while taking the po
sltlon that he would withdraw It not
satisfactory, declared that the last
words from Jeffries were to the or
feet that he would countenance no
change. The uromoter said he was
given to understand that he was sat
Isfactory to Johnson and that he was
quite willing to serve.
The final showdown of the situa
tion, as H stands, came In a late
conference that was held lost night
at the Seal Rock House, at which
were present Rickard, Jack JohnBon
and several of the San Francisco
