I COPS STOP FIGHT;
Former Roustabaut Highest Paid Man in World
Yesterday; Many Fans Believe Jim Could Have
Won If He Had Kept Temper
I By W. W. Naughton
AST LAS VEGAS, N. JVL,
p July 4. Jack Jolmson, n
former roustabout on the
wharves at Galveston, Tex.,
earned more money yesterday
than any other man in the world,
and if the police had not stopped
Johnson's fight with Flynn,
Johnson would have earned still
more, for he had a small percent
age in the moving pictures be
sides the 30,000 clear of training
expenses he demanded before he
would enter the ring.
Flynn 's Butting tactics brought
the police into the ring in the
ninth round of his scheduled forty-five-round
fight with Jack
Johnson here today. Referee
Smith gave Johnson the decision.
Smith said, however, the fight was
not won on a foul.
Said Smith: "They both trans

was given to Johnson because he had
the better of the lighting up to that
time. They agreed fully a week go
that if thero was any interference ot
any kind, the mau in the lead at the
limo the bout was stoppod was to bo
declared the winner. But Johnson had
scored the most punches and had
brought the most blood. This was
something that could not be domed.
But that he looked a winner at the
time of the interference is a different
matter. It was the opinion of the
majority of the spectators that it

BINGSLDE, LAS VEGAS, July 4
Jim Flynn 's whito hope aspirations
expired today in the ninth round of his
scheduled fbrty-fivo-round bout with
the champion, Jack JohnBon. Flynn's
face was chopped and cut frightfully

and in the ninth round Fred Tornoff of
the New Mexican state police pushed
his way into the ring 'and declared the

he would declaro to Smith, and in tne
next clinch he would try it again.
When the police interfered the ref
eree, through the announcer, awarded
the fight to Johnson.' Johnson made
no serious effort to hurt Flynn at any
time during the nine rounds. Appar
ently he held himself in check oven
when Flynn 's butting tactics were at
tho worst. Johnson bore not a single
mark of the fight boyoifd a slight cut
inside his lower lip,
Flynn was introduced to the crowd
as tho "fighting fireman of Pueblo."
Fl.yun's early reception was dupli
Johnson was then presented as tho
champion heavyweight of the world.
His reception was lukewarm.
Jack Remembers Pictures.
From tho start Johnson held Flynn
away with one arm, hut tho champion
frequently missed blows and then ap
peared nettled at his own carelessness.
Johnson was not trying to end the
battle as quickly as he might have done
if tho moving pictures had not slipu
lated a price for ten rounds.
Johnson smashed a right uppercnt
through Flynn 's guard, which rocked
the white man on his feet. Then tho
champion smiled again and went back
to the monotonous chopping, which' re
duced Flynn ;s face to a bloody mass
in each round.
Apparently Johnson did not attempt
to hit hard. He contented himself with
a slow, coldly scientific chopping, every
blow finding its way through the bar
ricade of gloves and elbows behind
which Flynn crouched. It was a per
fect exhibition of guarding and hitting
in tho clinches as far as the champion
was concerned. Not a blow Flynn
started roached him with any steam
behind it. Thev were Bmothered or
tossed nside unless Johnson choso to
allow his opponent to hatter away at
his stomacn, Rmiling the while over
When the fight was over there was
not a mark on Johnson's body beyond
a cut inside his lower lip, which bled
slightly for a few minutes.
Collects His Bets.
Immediately after the fight John
son hastened to the betting commissioner
to collect his wagers on himself, ne
drove- there from the ringside in his
automobile, and was forced to address
the crowd in the big room before he
could leave for his camp.
Flynn was rushed to his camp from
the arena. He was not hurt, cuts and
bruises on his. face being the only dam
age, lie had nothing to say in defense
of the showing ho made.
The fight was utterly lacking inter
est. It was like a training bout at
Johnson's camp outside of tho blood

throughout tho nine rounds, and the

"JOBBERY" CRY FK
Referee Welsh Is Almost
Mobbed When He Counts
Joe Rivers Out.
BETS NOT OFF, HE SAYS
Ringside Spectators Aver
Mexican Joe Was on Feet
When Referee Said "Out."
By H. M. Walker"
LOS ANGELES, July 4. The Wol-gast-Eivers
battle came to a spectacular
ending in tho thirteenth round, a dra
matic climax that left the world's
lightweight championship still in little
Ad's possession, but with rumors of job
bery, and sent the referee, Jack "Welsh,
hurrying from tho Vernon arena to es
cape mob violence, a violence that
needed only tho whisper of a leader's
voice to have turned the historic old
pavilion into a madhouse.
The picture must be painted in small
bits. Too much happened inside the
space of ten seconds for an.y" living
man to describe the scene in a sentence.
"Wolgast, tho snarl of battle on his
lips, a veritable ring demon, was forc
ing Eivers in front of him along tho
ropes on the north side of the ring.
Lashing out, the champion sent a right
to the body and followed with a low
left to tho belt territorj'. Rivera
crashed to tho floor under thiB crushing
assault, and tho forco of the dclivory
carried Ad toppling over on" top of tho
Simultaneously both men claimed a
foul. Wolgast struggled wearily to a
sitting position and threw both gloved
hands to his abdomen, claiming that
"Rivers had used his knee. Laying at
full length on the canvas, tho brown
challenger clutched at his bolt line with
both handB, while his frantic seconds
sot up a succession of shrieks to the
effect that the blow which floored the
Mexican boy had been a low one de
livered in foul territory.
Referee Loses Head.
Tn reviewing what followed the most
charitable thing that can be said for
Jack Welsh is that tho veteran official,
supposed to be the coolest man inside
tho arena, completely lost his head and
was, in reality, the most excited indi
vidual inside the wallB.
Looking down upon the pair of lads
on tho floor, Welsh faltered for two
or three soconda as though in a quan
dary, and then UBed his left hand to
help the champion to a standing posi
tion, while with his right he began to
go through the motion of counting
Rivers out. The referee actions were
those of a man uncertain of his posi
tion, and hiB count was unstoad'
Tho number of seconds motioned off
by Welch is a thing that will long xe
mnin a subject for argument. Some
ringside observers say Jnck counted
four, others five, whilo Welch main
tained that ho counted off tho full ton
While Welch was pantomiming the
count Wolgast Btaggered free of tho
official's helping hand and tottered
about tho ring, affecting great pain.
Also Rivers pulled himself to his feet
and as Jack continued to pnlm off the
seconds the finishing bell sounded sig
naling the ond of the round.
Earl Rogers Angry.
Wolgast was hurried to hiB corner
where ho lay hack on his chair at full
length with his handlers working over
him. Rivers dropped into biB chair in
a woakened condition when Wolch
turned towards the champion gesturing
that the latter had won.
In answer to the storm of surprise
fronj Rivers 's corner the referee main
tained that Rivera had boon on tho
floor for the full ton seconds and that
he had counted him out.
Ab the news of tho referee's verdict
spread about the ringside it left an
army of dazed nnd confusod men in
its wake. Welch quickly turnod to
leave the ring when he was met by
Attorney Earl Rogers, who tried to
provont Jack's exit. A score of ox
cited men were in back of Rogers, who
was burning Welch up with a tirade of

part of the spectators knew

To tho newspaper men rushed Rogers
with this statement:
"It wns tho most gigantic swindlo,
tho most wholesale bit of robbery that
ever came to my notice.
"As early as 10 o'clock this morn
ing it came to my ears that a plot was
on foot whereby Wolgast was to bo
givon a victory no matter what tne
cost should ho. The thousands f dol
lars bet on Wolgast at odds, which to
sav the least, were suspicious, gave
body to this story.
"T watched everv move of the three
insido the ropes and was satisfied early
in the bout that the referee was favor
ing Wolgast in every way possible.
Wolgast was allowed almost, unbeliov
able license in tho war, of rough tac
tics whilo Rivers was being hold to the
strictest interpretation of the rules.
"I openly charge that the decision
was a 'crooked' one. T have fought
for vears to preserve the sport of bor

game will be closed down pormanenUy

As tho decision of Wolch became
known the great crowd surged in about
the ring shouting "robbery" and call

"Got Ad out of hero quick, Wolch
has given him the decision," said ono
of tho champion's seconds, and Wol

Rafereo Welch Baid tonight:
"Wolgast was clearly the winner.
Just before Rivers went down Wolgast
had landed a heavy left to the tody
just below tho pit of tho Btomach and
followed it with another smash with
the right almost to the same place.
"Neither blow was low. I did not
see what happened to Wolgast.
"RivorH did not act as if he had
been fouled. The pictures wilj show
that I was right and that therj was
not a foul blow struck."
Welch added that lie did not declaro

effect was shouted from he ring -while
the confusion wus (at its height.
Betting commissioners stated that
payment ot bets would be according to
the decision of the referee. Many con

to gallop to show his heels to the fair
field which made up the first race, a con
dition event over the futurity course.
The bookmakers laid the liberal price of
7 to 10 against the Prince, who won like
a 1 to 10 shot. Shooting Spray, against
which -00 to 1 was laid, was an easy
second, while Seth got up In time to nose
out Pay Streak for show honorB. A

Horus from contention for first money.
