Our tall Mr. "Upham was not all to

AGREES TO FIGHT
If Latter Will Whip 2 Good
Men While Negro is in
Capt. Auger Biggest Man in
World Issues Defi With John
son in Kidding Role .
Jack Johnson refused to accept a
cent, not even expenses, from Terry
Lee,- last night when he came to this
city under Lee's management to repay
a debt of gratitude he has borne in
mind lor three years. The house was
not large and had Johnson demanded
what wah coming , to him. Lee would
have owed . himself money. , Johnson
took Lee and all the latter's friends
completely off their feet , when he an
nounced in a speech following his six
rounds exhlbiton. that he would not
take one cent from Lee. ' and the big
black man was given rousing applause
nd cheers. - "'
, Three years ago Lee arranged a- go be
tween Sailor Burke and Jack Johnson.
The latter was then fighting: his way
among the less famous heavyweights
towards tho championship. He hadnt
a cent when he fought here, and Lee
turned over to him as his share of the
revenue from the exhibition nearly
32,000. Johnson has always remember
ed this, and when Lee approached him
at Hammerstem's shortly after his
return from the west the negro prom
ised, to do anything within his power
for the Bridgeporter. '
Lee arranged for Johnson's appear
ance here last night. . two weeks -. in
advance. Then came word that John
son had been retained for a third con
secutive week at Hammerstein's. Lee
was chagrined for It meant that the
local show was off. But Johnson soon
relieved his alarm by a telegram an
nouncing that he would not only come
here, on a special train, to give his per
formance and return to Now York in
time for his .enagement. but he would
give 4his complete exhibition just the
same as he does in New York.
Johnson's arrival here during the
afternoon was awaited by several hun
dred people, who gave -the champion
a cheer as he alighted from a special
car. Half a dozen automobiles were
lined up to receive the party. With
kids dangling off the sides and backs
swarming every available portion of
the cars, the joy parade began. Sev
eral of the centrally located cafes were
visited, and the big fellow bought more
often than it was his turn.'
The local colored folks tendered John
son a banquet In a restaurant over
Donovan's cafe, in Fairfield avenue.
Then he "went to Jackson's theatre.
The streets were thronged with people
but most of them cared only to see
the big fellow In street attire, for of
the hundreds who flocked about the
places the champion visited, a very
small percentage bought tickets to
witness his exhibition.
Johnson appeared for six rounds
with Walter Monahan. the former
heavyweight champion of the Pacific
slope. The appearance of the negro
called for spontaneous applause. Like
a heroic fizure molded in bronze, his
muscles swelling as if to burst through
his shiny black skin, his movements
as lithe and graceful as those of a
frolicsome feline, and his characteristic
smile like a burst of sunlight dispelling
it gathering of black storm clouds, the
champion of the world bore lightly
the laurels he so recently captured. He
wore the same costume he donned for
the Reno battle.
Monahan . and - he sparred for six
rounds, the negro completely outclass
ing hs opponent at every stage of the
game. Johnson's wonderful strength
combining with his agility was dis
played to good advantage in several
minutes of in-fighting, while his sparr
ing ability as he stood off his clever
white opponent readily showed how
easy it was for him to meet and beat
a man even of Jeffs mettle.
Though there were six fast rounds,
Johnson came from his corner with
in a minute after the last was over,
and made a brief speech. His dialect
Is typical of the Southern neffro. He
labored through a set speech, telling
of Jeffries' manful effort to win the
light, and said the battle was fair and
square. Modestly he added that it
was simply a case of the best man
More at ease when he had concluded
his short dissertation on the fight, he
expressed regret that the house was
not more filled for the sake of his good
friend, Terry Lee. and then announced
be would not take a cent for his part
of tne entertainment.
Then came the challengers. Prof
Atlas introduced Sailor Burke, who
did not challenge. Charley Murphy,
the south ivorwaiK athlete, was greet
ed with applause, and his bisr frame.
towering far above that of the amply
proportioned professor, won him the
wholesome respect of the crowd. Then
Captain Auger, the biggest man on
earth, challenged Johnson. While the
captain, taking himself very seriously.
was addressing the audience. Jack
Johnson came stealing up from off
stage, and getting under tho big fel
low's right shoulder, gazed up into his
face, feigning much wonderment at the
giant's huge stature. He ducked as
the slant looked around but Auger
stepped across the stage after him.
lined the negro up . alongside of him,
then stretched his arm out straight.
Johnson stood erect under Auger's
arm. and there were Inches to spare.
As for Murphy's challenge, Johnson
announced that If Murphy would meet
two men of reputation while he Is In
Europe. Johnson will meet him for a
championship battle on his return, and
will not ask for more than 15,000 side
Several exhibition bouts were held,
three rounds between Tommy Ryan
and Eddie Kelly, three rounds between
Dick Gerrity and Willie Jennings, and
others arranged on the stage last ev
ening not announced in the program.
The vaudeville features included solos
by John Allman. and singing and danc
ing by Burdick and Barry.
Not till the 6how was over did John
son tell Terry Lee of how he was ar
rested yesterday afternoon in New
York city. Repeatedly has he been
apprehended for auto speeding, but not
until now has he been arrested for
leaving his automobile standing still.
On the charge of obstructing traffic
and the additional charge of displaying
the wrong license number, Johnson
was arrested on 34th street, between
5th and 6th avenues, and held in ball
of $100 for his appearance In court to
day. He had to delve through $1,000
and $500 bills until he could find a lone
$100 note in the heart of his bulky roll

The races for second place In both
the National and American Leagues

today if things break right. The New
Yorks and Bostons have been see-sawing
between second and third place for
two weeks and their struggle for the
