Strios ef Jeffries's Dissipa
tion and Unfitness Given
Munroe Simply Goes Against a Hard
Proposition With Nothing to
Precluding the intervention o Provi
dence, Heavy-Weight Champion James
J. Jeffries and Miner Jack Munroe-will
clash tonight to decide the question of
heavy-weight championship. Twice
before dates have been set for the bat
tle, but on both occasions the men have
been prevented from coming together
because of lack of proper training, ill
ness or other causes, but the conditions
binding the contestants for tonight's
bout are such that neither can dodge
the Issue and the debate Is certain.
Shrouded in Mystery.
Never has a championship battle been
shrouded in greater mystery, nor have
tne reports coming irom tne seat ot ac
tion been more conflicting. The major
ity of the reports indicate that Munroe
has Improved greatly; that he has not
onlj' developed ln science and ring gen
eralship, but that he is In the pink of
condition, whereas Jeffries has been
iather careless about his training and
indifferent as to the advice given by his
old-time trainer, Billy Deianey. Again,
tho reports claim that Jeffries has been
dissipating; that he is tiring of the
strenuous life of a fighter and Its vain
glory, while Munroe, who has a reputa
tion to make, recognizes that Jeffries Is
about the biggest game that he will
ever have the opportunity' of running
up against, and is fllled with the ambi
tion of one who would and the confi
dence of one who can and will.
Munroo Has All to Gnin.
That Munvoe Is a big, husky fellow;
that he has trained fnitlifully; that he
has grasped every opportunity to im
prove himself and that he is game, no
one will deny, but that does not give
him a mortgage on the battle. But
should the ex-dlggcr win he will be the
biggest pugilistic surprise since the
time when Jim Corbett defeated the
supposedly invincible John L. Sullivan.
But with all these advantges he lacks
the champion's punch, his experience
gained by years, his huge build and his
crouch all of which Jeffries knows
how to employ with tho greatest dex
terity. Honce, granting that Munroe Is
ln better condition and Is Just as game
and quicker than the champion, the
question arises, will the miner be able
to break Jeffries's crouch, wear him
out or land the punch which so many
champions before have tried ln vain to
land, and drop this mountain of human
flesh to the mat for ten counts? In Jef
fries the miner meets the summit of
physical perfectness, bone, muscle and
nil joined together in absolute har
mony In Jeffries he meets a man who
has never known defeat, who Is game
to the coro, active on his feet, quick
with his hands and able to hand out as
hnrd a punch as any man that ever
Stories Are "Rot."
As to Jeffries's dissipation and condi
tion, that la all rot. It Is not even
worthy of passing consideration. If we
ore justified In judging of the present
from the past. When conditioning for
his last fight with Corbett rumors were
afloat thut Jeffries was on the verge of
collapse and that he would bo as slow
r.a rt cnnll hilt hf U'llS TlPVfr In hpttfr
condition and did not hesitate to meas
ure speed with the shifty Corbett.
There Is one consolation nil these
mysteries will soon solve .themselves.
Before another day the sporting public
will know whether Munroe Is a fighter
or a dub, and whether Jeffries has ac
tually cut Ioo'jc and Is physically unflt
to enter the ring. There Is also consid
erable discussion among the wise ones
as to Vhat style of fighting the giants
will adopt and on this point, too, it will
probably h wiser to await results.

John C. Cutler was nominated for

In a convention held at the Salt Lake
Theater, in which he received 230 votes
on the second ballot, against 221 for
Gov. Heber M. Wells.

APPLAUSE FOR ROOSEVELT.
Mention of the President's Name
Aroused Delegates to Enthusiasm.
Those who feared that there would
be a lack of harmony at the convention
were reaesmred. There were two bands,
the regular Theater orchestra and a
crack . musical organization from
Brlgham City, the former on the floor
and tho latter on the stage.
The first outburst of applause came
with the mention of the name of tho
President by State Chairman James H.
Anderson, as he called the gathering to
order at 11:15 o'clock. Delegates had
been filing ln for an hour or more. They
now fllled the pit and dress circle. Out
side the reserved space was a fringe of
spectators. Onlookers also held every
rcat ln tho first balcony under the
banners: "Our State, Our Country and
Our Party," "Progress, Liberty and
Prosperity; Republican Watchwords,"
"What has Aided Utah Most? Repub
licanism." Temporary Officers Named.
Chairman Anderson spoke very briefly
of the purposes? of the convention, and
read the list of temporary ofllcers, nam
ing them as follows:
George M. Cannon, chairman, Salt
George F. Richards, vice-chairman,
Samuel Judd, vice-chairman, Wash

Davis Hess, chaplain, Davis.
Four Littlo Girls in Blue.
Before relinquishing the gavel, Mr.
Anderson presented four little girls In
blue, tho "Theodore Roosevelt, Jr..
Quartette." Two clever skits were giv
en by the sweet volcos, which brought
salvos of appluuse from the delegates,
eager, nervous and overstrained from a
morning of campaigning, who wel
comed this opportunity for relaxation.
Chairman Cannon's Address.
Chairman Cannon was introduced by
Mr. Anderron U3 "President of the first

Kept Within the Revenues.
Yot under recommendations made by
our Republican Governor to the law
making bodies of our State, our expendi
tures have been kept within the revenues
and within tho very moderate rates of
taxation allowed by our Constitution, and
at tho samo time the credit of the State
has been raised to and maintained ln the t
first rank. As an evidence of this fact,
that part of the old Territorial debt which
has matured slnco wc became a Slate

ning State havo tho relations between tho
two been so amicable and so freo-from
those disturbances which aro elsewhere

wealths. Our first Stato Legislature passed, and
our Governor promptly signed and has
slnco enforced, an eight-hour law that
has given to miners and thoao employed
ln smelters fair remuneration, and still
enabled them to see the sunshine ln their
homes before and after their hours of

"The benefit to the workers will Justify

Industry hns been correspondingly grati
fying Whllo I havo not at hand tho ox

have been succeeded bv up-to-date plants
of mammoth proportions and costing mil
lions of dollars, and producing many
times the already generous product of for

And whllo thus mindful of the wishes of
tho laboring classes, no law has been en
acted that has made unprodudllvo Invest
ments of capital. Property rights, whera
threatened, have been over promptly pro

tho rights of other men. Every man has
been protected In his right to labor whera
and how and for whom he pleases, 60 long
na he Is willing to accord to every other
mnn tho same privileges.
Not alone in mining and smelting have
tho people of Utah prospered; for under
tho pronperlty which has accompanied
State and National Republican adminis
trations, our growth In other material In
terests has been rapid, sure and constant.
The aoaessed valuation of all property ln
tho State Is as follows:
While ln most case3 the assessed valua
tion on farms and homes has not been
materially increased, the revenue from
corporations (os well as from mines pra
viouslv nlltided to) ha3 been vastly In
creased. Another reference to tho assess

Promises mado ln both Stato and Na
tional Republican platforms have been
kept, and .throughout public afTnlrs the
effort has oeoit to glvo to tho people a
maximum of good government at a mini
mum of post. During the last four years
the prosperity of the United States has
exceeded thnt of any other nation that
has existed slnco tho beginning of his
tory, and our marvelous resources and
enormous manufacturing possibilities
have commanded the admiration of tho
world and tho envy of all competing coun
tries. Administration of RoosevclL
To the pooplo of tho West tho-udmlnls;
tratlon of President Theodore Roosevelt
has been particularly auspicious. Ho
knows the arid regions of America by per
sonal contact with mountains and plain;
has seen the difficulties thnt confront the
people of this intermounlaln country; has
shared in their joys and endured with
them their privations. And so It has been
that when for tho first time since the es
tablishment of our Nation, Government
aid was asked of Congress for the vast Ir
rigation enterprises necessary to convert
deserts Into fruitful fields, the sympathy
and Influence of Thcdclorc Roosevelt were
exercised ln our behalf and the national
Irrigation act became a living reality.
In Nation and In State we arc confront
ed by our old-time opponents, the Demo
cratic party. And Its attltudo Is true to
113 history. Tho Republican party stands
for progress, but while believing In being
ready for any new conditions that may
arise, its policy In the days of Webster, of
McKlnloy and of Theodore Roosevelt Is
always Interwoven with a determination
to make one of the main Issues a tariff
for protection to American Industries.
But whero does the Democratic party
stand on this question? One year declar
ing tho principal of protection a fraud and
a shnm; the next year, when In tempo-
I rary power, whllo doing all in Its power to
destroy protection, not daring enough to
put in forco its own platform declarations.
In former times ln national platforms de
claring against tho froo homestead law.
Again declaring against any appropria
tions for Government aid to internal Im
provement. What Democrat dare now
stand upon these questions upon his old
Republican National Policy.
Tho Republican party believes both ln
tho free homestend act and In appropria
tions by the General Government for In
ternal Improvements, Including Improve
ments of rivers and harbors, and now the
development of our Irrigation projects;
and having had object lessons In these
matters, theso principles aro now accepted
