SAN FRANCISCO, liny 24. The
first definito step in tho campaign that
is being .waged by the republicans and
churches against prize righting in gen
eral, ii California and tho Jeffries-
Johnson contest in particular, was made
today when a delegation of prominent
ministers ana their legal navisers ap
peared before tho polico committee of
tho board of supervisors to protest
against tho granting' of- tho pormit to
tho Broadway Athletic club to conduct
a boxing contest in this city on July 4.
John L. Herget, who, when ho was a
middleweight prizo fighter, with champ
ionship aspirations some years ago, was
known to tho ring as "Young Mitch

supervisor, sat as chairman of tho com

Rev. William Rader, Rev. A. C. Bain
and Attorney J. E. White took tho lead

tho church peopile. Chairman Herget
informed tho protcstants that tho Jeffries-Johnson
fight was merely to bo a

When the ministers referred to the
scheduled event as a prizo fight and to
Jeffries and Johnson as prize fighters,
Herget objected nnd ruled that Jeff

and woulJl not know ono if ho saw it.
Mr. Bain warned tho members ot tuc
committee that they would jeopardize
tho chances of tho city to getting gov
ernment support for tho Panama-Pacific
exposition if tho fighting game
was encouraged here.
Chairman Herget informed th0 minis
ter that tho Royal Arch, an 'order to
which several of tho supervisors be
longed, had madfl a subscription of
$250,000 to tho exposition stock fund.
"And how much did tho San Fran

But Mr. Bain replied:

culvert a shoit timo afterwards to as

was rejected the Fitzgernld amendment,
reducing the amount to $73,000.
, Two provisions to accomplish this
general purpose had been ruled ou't of

Mr. Tawney, called tor a mass of infor

of tho tariff law, which in his second
amendment there was a provision that
tho president should make an investiga

recommendations to congress. Both
wero out of order, as they provided for
actions not specifically authorized by

Preceding the decision ruling out the
first amendment, Mr. Tawney accused
the democrats of desiring to be in ig

Tho fact that a man has built a home

.to so much discussion. Pages have
been demoted in magazines to find-)

Such Is Ambitious Program
Set for Himself by In
trepid Aviator
NEW YORK, May 24. Glenn II.
turtiss will attempt, on Thursday, tho
most ambitious flight over tho water
yet essayed in an aeroplane.
Under the terms of the competition,
offered Dy tho New York World, he will
trv to hy from Albany to New York
with but ono stop.
For the last six months Curtiss has
been maneuvering for, the $10,000 prizo
offered by the World for a flight be
tween New York and Albany with one
stop. Recently ho has been conducting
experiments to determine the ability of
his latest model to light on the water
and float without upsetting.
Without air tight compartments to
sustain tho aeroplane upon the water,
Curtiss believes he could fly from Al
bany to New Y'ork in ono flight. As a
safeguard against accident, however, he'
felt it necessary to equip himself with
life buoys, and the weight of tho buoys
necessarily deducts from his available
supply of gasoline.
Curtiss probably will start from Al
bany about 4 o'clock Thursday morn
ing, if weather conditions favor. He
expects to brak his flight somewhere
near Poughkeepsie. Tho distance by
rail is 142 miles, but it is estimated
that, allowing for cutoffs across bends
of the river, 150 miles will be a more
accurate measurement of tho Curtiss
flight. The longest cross-country flight
officially recorded is 125 miles, made by
Paulhan, on April 18, 1910, from Orleans
to Arcis Sur Aubc.
The machine Curtiss will use in his
present attempt carries an eight cylin
der motor developing fifty horsepower
and has a wing spread which Curtiss
says is less than one-half that of any
other biplane now in use.
If he starts his flight early in the
morning and stops for gasoline near
Poughkeepsie, he expects to finish tho
afternoon of the same day.
