AYLETT AND CATHCART IN CONFERENCE
SAN FRANCISCO, June 15. Gov
ernor Oillett sprung a sensation on
the sporting fraternity today by
sending a letter to the Attorney
General oi the State directing him
, to take immediate steps to enjoin
the Jeffries Johnson thampionship
battle until the courts can determine
whether it is a prize-fight or not.
Under the law of the State, (prize
fighting is a felony, and the Govern
r is apparently not ready to take
the responsibility of assuming that
the mill between Jeffries and John
ton is merely a boxing match.
The Governor in his letter orders
that in event of the Attorney-General
being unable to stop the con
test by injunction, he shall arrest
and prosecute all persons connected
with the affair.
Tex Bickard, who is managing the
fight, sajs that he ,will hold flic
fight if he has to go to Utah or Ne
