JEFFRIES AND PARTY LEAVE FOR
BIG HUNT IN TEHACHAPI COUNTRY
CARRY ALONG FNOUGH AMMUNITION AND SUPPLIES TO EQUIP
SMALL ARMY
Expect to Be Absent Until About March 20, When Big Fellow Will
Return Home for Stay of Ten Days. Before Going to His Santa
Cruz Camp for Regular Training—His Quarters Will Be
Located at Rowarclennan Park, Nine Miles from Ocean
and Away Up in Mountains—Conlcy and Webster
May Meet March 29 Over Marathon Course.
Langford Lays Off — Fly'nn Continues
XEFFRIES left lait night for Cudrtebaok ranch, r^r Tehachapi. for the
Jmuoh planned hunting trip that will be his last form of recreation nnd
pleasure until after hll scrap with the big dlnße July 4. He was accom
panled by hii brother Jack and E- W. Hopperstead, and they carried enough
ammunition and suppllej to put a small army In the field for active nnd
effective iervlce. Although Jeff owni fourteen guns of different styles, he
came downtown yesterday and boupht four more, and is prepared to hunt
anything from a canary to nn elephant. Hear will lie his principal enemy
on this trip, nnd Jeff mad? several bets with friends that he would get more
than one bruin by hip lonely before he returns.
Although this Is a pleasure trip, Jeff says that the walking ftnd moun
tain climbing will do him fully as much pond as his regular road runs and
■wood-chopping stunts, and he expects to return home about March 20 In
great condition and fully rested, so that the regular training stunts that he
then Will take up will be easier and more pleasant of performance. When
he returns, he s-.ys ho will remain here until March 30, when he will leave
for Santa Cruz to begin the routine of training In the mountain camp that
he has selected. While here during the last ten days of this month, he will
begin light training and Will have Bob Armstrong with him all the time.
Armstrong Is under contract to help Langford during the present training
period, and Jeff did not want to break up this arrangement. After March
17 Armstrong wll be ready to begin steady work with Jeff and stay with
him until after July 4.
May Match Webster and Conley
Developments yesterday began to indicate the probability of a match for
March 29 between Frankio Conley and Danny Webster over the Marathon
route.. Webster has been working hard lately, and practically has agreed to
the conditions offered for the match, Conley wired McCarejr that his mother
is quite sick and it will be impossible for him to start for Los Angeles Imme
diately, but ho said he would come just as soon as the condition of his
mother would permit. Tickets were telegraphed him, and McCarey considers
the match as good as made.
•/,' Jim Barry also is expected to come back from Frisco in a day or two
and may be signed up for another local appearance, although news dis
patches from the north indicate that he and Jack Bums have been signed to
light up there this month. Barry still has that hopeless hope that he some
day will bo able to whip Langford, and he Intends to be consistent in keeping
close by Sam at ail times and fighting him at every possible opportunity
until the unexpected really happens, If that Is possible.
Langford Will Not Work Today
Langford decided yesterday that he would cut out Friday In his training
and take a day of rest, except for the morning road work. He has been
hitting up *uch a hot pace that his trainer, George Byers, advises an occa
sional rest, and today will be devoted to that pleasant pastime. Langford did
seven miles on the road yesterday morning and topped oft the day with
bouts with Armstrong, Collins, Young Kenny and Kid Cleveland. Sam as
suredly is getting into his best condition and should be at his best form
March IT. He Is training faithfully this time, and is showing the good effects
of this work.
Flynn is surprising even himself by the excellent results of his training,
and the fighting fireman cannot hold himself down to mild work when he
" begins the afternoon routine. He is so strong and full of fight lately that
he has a lot of difficulty in getting sparring partners, Dick Allen, the big
heavyweight, being the only one who would take a chance with him yes
terday. Flynn boxed easily with Al Rogers for four rounds, and as soon as
he got warmed up he took on Allen for ten more, and the fur sure did fly.
The Flynn who fought Langford last time will not fight him this time. It
will be a vastly Improved lighter that the Boston negro will tackle, and there
Is apt to be something surprising happen when the fireman and coon mix It
on St. Pat's birthday.
Jeff Camp at Rowardennan Park
H. F. Anderson, one of the owners of Rowardennan Park, the mountain
resort near Santa Cruz where Jeff will establish his training camp April 1,
came to town yesterday and had a long talk with the big fellow. This
resort is located in the mountains, nine miles east of Santa Cruz and the
same distance from the ocean. It is located on the Southern Pacific rail
road, and the San Lorenzo river runs through the park, where boating Is
among the most popular pastimes. 11 Is near the big tree country and is
regarded as an Ideal location for a training came
Jeff has taken one of the finest cottages of the many that are In the
mountain resort, and he and Mrs. Jeffries will occupy it. Corbett, Gotch
Farmer Burns and Sam Berger will have Quarters at the Rowardennan hotel,
■where they will have exclusive occupancy of the place. The hotel is about
large enough to accommodate the training corps, and all arrangements for
taking care of the Jeffries party during their three months 1 stay are emi
nently satisfactory to all concerned.
Coulon and Coriley Must Fight
Since little Johnny Coulon is raising so much racket about the claims
of Frank!'' Conley upon the bantam championship, it looks like Conley would
have to trim the youngster in order to stop the noise. Coulon, however,
assumes to call himself champion and has lowered the scab- of weight to
IIS "pounds, which Conley might make if he could saw himself in two.
Coulon says Conley MUST make that weight or not get a chance to fight
for the title.
It is difficult to figure where Coulon gets the slightest justification for
his claims. He never whipped anybody that amounted to anything, or else
he has loft it nut of his record. He has trimmed a few pork and beans boys
like Young McGovern and Jim Kendrlck, but none of these ever figured in
the championship class, and therefore could nut Increase confidence in the
Coulon championship claim. On the contrary, Conley has a clear and undis
puted title to tho championship. He can trace It back to jimmy Walsh,
former American champion, and Digger Stanley, former English champion,
and there is not a break In the chain. Conley Is the accepted champ] and
Coulon has absolutely no claim upon the title.
Rival Bantams Would Make Great Card
While the fans do not tat the bantam fighters as seriously as they
consider featherweights, lightweights and scrappers in the bigger divisions,
the Conley-Coulon scrap would be a great card. Coulon is one of the most
finished pieces of fighting machinery in the ring today, and If he had a few
more pounds on his frame would be about the one who could trim Conley
■ But be is too llfe'lit to tackle the job at the bantam scale of 116 pounds and
over the marathon distance, such as Conley would insist upon. i 'union has
a good following here, and in view of his great fighting ability would make
a good card with Conley, and they would give the fans plenty of chance to
shout their heads off.
Coulon figures to hi a tough opponent for Conley even as light as he is
at this time, While he naturally is v 110-pounder, he Is a most clever boxer
and a hard-hitting fighter, as his numerous knockout victories prove.
While the fans will not take Coulon's championship claims very seriously,
and at the same time will accept Conley as the real champion, they would
like very much to see this classy pair hook up and light and settle their
argument In that manner, rather than by talking and ridiculing each other.
Conley la willing, but Coulon does not impress one with the idea that he Is
overly anxious to meet the issue.

Jeffries Caught by Herald Camera Man While Playing
with His Pets During Letup in an Afternoon of Work
in A HUnOOBAntBsI
I SEW of the photographs which have
j been made of James J. Jeffries,
undefeated heavyweight cham
pion of the world, and from which the
public has naturally formed its con
ception of the man, have furnished a
correct likeness from which to judge
the big fellow, for "Jeff" is not a good
subject for the camera, being essenti
ally not a "poser." He cares nothing
for the limelight of publicity and when
facing the camera always docs so with
ict least a mental protest. Not that the
big fellow Is surly or ungracious about
acting as a target for the photographic
lens, for Jeffries Is personally one of
the most likable fellows it could be
any one's good fortune to meet. It is
simply that he does not court notciri-
