champion gets down to real business
of conditioning himself very shortly, ho
will be the target for a wond of crit
icism. While it has been generally under

mntters easv, it was not brought to pub
lic attention until this afternoon, when
the "fans" discovered that the doors
of tho big pavilion were closed and that
Johnson would do no boxing.
Instead of working in tho gym three
times a week, he has cut it down to two,
with tho promise that after tho next

Whether it is just because Johnson
likes a lazy life, is not known, but
there, is a rumor around his quartors
that ho discovered his weight was
dropping away too fait and that ho was
fearful lest ho might go stale before tho
Fourth of July. "
-'I 'am going to train gust as suits
myself and not the public," declared
Johnson somewhat angrily, when ques
tioned why ho did not go into the gym
nasium. -"-AiIrraid when 'T rst came, to' Cali

soon as I am good and ready, I will box

"It was tho same om story on tho
road this morning," declared Sig Hart
as ho returned to camp lagging behind
Johnson. "Jack is in great shape for
road work and he sprints a lot nowa
days." Johnson went over the same course
that he has been using.
In the afternoon he took his auto
mobile for a ride.
It is expected that Sunday will bo

Mr.. Roberts delivered an extended

BEN LOMOND, Cal., May 21. Al
though Jeffries hooked three big ones
this morning, ho was but little fatigued
by the effoit, and went back to his af
ternoon fishing with a determined spirit.
The second session was less trying, as
ho got only two minnows, which wero
landed easily and he walked briskly
back to his lodge, declaring ho was but
little fatigued with the day's workout.
Ho shows enthusiasm in his angang,
which is tho cause of much rejoicing
among his camp followers. The painful
eruptions, on his back, which were the
causo of much aunoyaneo as ho uent

Count de Lesseps Makes Suc

of Dense Fog
LN FIFTY MINUTES
Expects to Make Eound Trip
Without Stop When Con
DOVER, England, Mny 21. For the
second timo within a year the English
Channel was crossed today by an aero
plane, and again the honor rests with
Count Jacques de Lesseps, a grandson
of tho lato Ferdinand de Lesseps, the
celebrated French engineer, driving a
monoplane of tho same model as that
with which Louis Bleriot conquered tho
straights July 25 last, duplicated his
ennntrvman's feat in a donso fog today,
starting at Calais and landing safely at
Wiston court farm.
Fifty minutes wero consumed in the
journey. menot's timo was m mm
M. de Lesseps intended making the'
trip from Calls to Uovcr and return
without alighting, in an effort to win
tho Ruinart prize of $2,500, but the mist
compelled him to descend. He expects
to resume his uight at daylight.
Leaving Calais amid the cheers of an
immense crowd, the aviator sent his
monoplane up to a height of 400 feet
and then headed in "the direction of
Dover. When scarcely a mile out from
the French coast, tho "Scarabee,' as
the monoplane is known, was lost to
sight 'of the torpedo boat destroyer
Escopette, which was racing underneath
it to render aid should the aviator fall.
M. do Lesseps' only means of reckon
ing his whereabouts were the rays of
the sun. which dimly penetrated the
banks of fog in which ho was enshroud
ed. He determined to keep on, now
over, and -n order to avoid the possi
bility of colliding with the cliffs of
Dover, ho bent the monoplane to a
height of 1,000 feet, at tho same.-time
keeping it pointed in the direction in
which ho believed tho English coast
The Frenchman's courage was soon
rewarded by the sight of the gray
cliffs immediately bencatn him. There
ho stopped the whirrinir motor and let
the machine glido to earth, landing with
out mishap at the Winston court iarm,
a milo inland and midway between
Dover and Deal.
Few saw tho intrepid aviator come to
tho ground for, when tho news was
tlnslufl frnm Calais that de Lessens had
started, the crowds assembled on the
field where Bleriot descended in his
epoch making flight, expecting that the
new seeker for cross-channel honors
would chooso the'same spot. That was
what De Lesseps intended to do had not
tho fog injterfcrred.

MUCH INTEREST IN
Vacation of Injunction Re
garding Kansas Bank Law
ST. PAUL, May 21. The ruling of
Judgo Hook of the United States court
of appeals in which tho order of the
federal circuit court restraining the of
ficers of the stato of Kansas from carry
ing into effect tho Kansas bank deposi
tqrs guarantee law, was vacated, has
created nine hintcrcst in bnking circles,
particularly in the southwest.
Tho injunction to prevent the law
from becoming effective was obtained
by the Abilene (Kansas) National
bank, acting for all of the national
banks of Kansas.
These organizations claim that as the
law did not allow these institutions
equal rights with tho state banks, that
it was legislaion which discriminated
against them, as depositors would nat
urally prefer banks whore deposits wero
guaranteed and also that they wero not
given equal protection.
Judgo Hooks rilling was that there
was no merit in cither contention.
The suit was contested by J. N. Dol
ley, bank commissioner for Kansas.
Heligoland Authorities Say
HAMBURG, May 21. From Heligo
land comes a curious libel action for the
German courts to deal with in tho
course of the present sessions.
Last year the lighthouse keeper on
the island died, and his affectionate
widow put u'p a tombstono on which
was inscribed: "Neglect shortened thy
life in the spring of thy years."
Friends of the widow say that this
was a dig at tho authorities, who sent
no relief to tho lighthouse keeper when
he needed it, but the local doctor has
read it as a reflection on himself. So
he has filed a suit for libel.
Now the widow is faced with a dilem
ma. Sho denies any reflection on tho
doctor, and as she draws an official pen
sion, she does not wish to fall foul
with tho authorities. Her defense,
therefore, is that she set' up tho inscrip
tion in repentance for her own neglect
of her husband in his last hours.
