This is the full text of the governor's

fining a prize fight. In Michigan a
prize fight exists when there is 'an ex
pectation of reward to be gained by
the contest or competition, either to be
won from the contestant, or to be
otherwise rewarded, coupled with an
intent to inflict upon such contestant
I some degree of bodily harm.' In Kan
sas the supreme courf"held that, 'The
contest must be a fight, andthat' there
must be an intent on the part of the
contestants to do violence to and in
flict some degree of bodily harm on
each other and the fight must be for
some prize or reward.

The big tliang we want just now is the

Asked what he would do if the na
tional guard forces were ordered to
stop the mill, McCarthy said:
"I tell you we run San Francisco and
we run it to suit ourselves. We have
policemen to do what we tell them to do.
The best bet of the day Is that some
body will be badly licked in San Fran
cisco on July 4, and by that I mean
either Jeffries or Johnson."
Mayor McCarthy was In Chicago only
an hour going from one train to an
other on his returji home after a stay
at Indianapolis where he suffered a
broken leg. On the trip across town he
first learned of governor Gillett's action
regarding the prize fight.
"Bunk, bunk, bunk," he sputtered.

After attending "a conference with at
torney general Webb, Tex Rickard said
tkat no action for the removal of the
fight would be- taken until Webb hands
down a decision as to the legality ot
holding the match here. Webb, Rickard
said promised the opinion in two days. It
will give Webb's opinion as to the prac
ticability of opposing the fight under
the statutes quoted by the governor In
his letter of Instruction.
"If governor Gillett has stated he will
not permit us to handle the Jeffries
Johnson fight in this state, that settles
us. We will not attempt to 'buck him'
nor bring down tne militia upon us. I
shall order work stopped at once on the
arena and take the tight elsewhere. 1
prefer Salt Lake, but Reno and Ely,
will also receive consideration."
This statement was made by Rickard
to the Associated Press when informed
of the governor's action. Jack Gleason
who was present voiced the expressions
of his partner. This was prior to the
conversation with Webb.

Jeff Thinks He's Vitliin Law.
Down at Ben Lomond, the Jeffries
camp was thrown into an uproar as a
result of governor Gillett's orders to
stop the fight. When Jaffries was in
formed that the governor had instruct
ed the attorney general to takesteps
to prevent the fight, he made the fol
"I do not know much about law. but
my understanding is that we are within
the law and protected by it. "A11 the
articles of agreement signed by John
son and myself were the same as those
signed for every fight fought in Cali
fornia. Gillett once said that he could
not stop the fight, so how is he goinjr
to do it now? 1 will continue with my
training until I am informed by the
promoters that the affair cannot come
off." Then Jeffries took an afternoon
Corbett Calls It Cruelty. n,
Jim Corbett was thunderstruck, but
when he heard that the governor had
personally vouched for the story over
the long distance telephone he said:
"I guess it is true, alright, but it is
minghty hard to believe. You must ad
mit that Gillett does not seem to be the
sort of man who would let the promo
ters go to all the expense they have
and then throw them down. Look at us
fellows, who traveled all the way
across the continent, spending our time
and money. It seems more like cruelty
to me than justice."
The report of the governor's action
took all enthusiasm and desire for
work out of Jeffries. He was on the
program for several rounds of boxing
but passed It up.
"Get the hooks and lines. Jack. You
and I will go fishing," he said, turn

Reno Wnnts Fight.
Reno made the first bid for the fight
as soon as the Associated Press bulle
tins announcing the action taken by
governor Gillett and attorney general
Webb were made public. Tex Rickard
got a telegram signed by A. J. Ayles
worth, manager of a Reno theater and
representing prominent business men,
stating that his city would erect a suit
able arena and furnish the $1000 license
required by the state law in case the
promoters took the contest there. Last
night the business men's association
held a meeting to discuss the advisa
bility of making an effort to get the
That the law of Nevada would permit
the fight in that state was a state
ment made by justice Sweeney, of the
supreme court, when the question was
put to him in the absence of governor
Dickerson. With only the formality
of obtaining a license for which $1000
must be deposited, he said that the
fight could be held in any county In
the state without fear of jnterruption.
The law permitting contests of un
limited rounds in Nevada was passed
for the Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight and
has not been amended or repealed.
Dispatches from Salt Lake say that
a considerable element of the populace
would welcome the Jeffries-Johnson
fight to that city, but the obstacles are
believed to be insuperable. Governor
Spry declared repeatedly when promo
ter Rickard was seeking to stage the
contest in Utah, that the laws of the
state distinctly prohibited such a meet
ing and that he would use his authonty
to enforce the laws. County attorney
Lyon of Salt Lake county made the
statement that the statute was unequi
vocal and that his office would take
whatever steps were necessary to stop
the fight here.
Rickard was finally convinced that
negotiations were useless and explained
