Reno, "New. June 29. Yielding to en
treaties of his counselors and friends,
Jim Jeffries called off his boycott on
boxing- today and has agreed to get into
action this afternoon for the special
' edification of governor Diekerson, who
has delayed his return to the state
capital to watch the big fellow work
Jim Corbett and his unruly charge
will box between 4 and 5 o'clock this
afternoon, although just how many
rounds nobody knows.
The governor greatly enjoyed watch
ing Johnson work yesterday.
"The work of the negro -was a rev
elation," said the governor this morn
ing. "I never knew a man Johnson's
size could be so wonderfully clever in
defending himself. When I compli
mented him on his ability as a boxer
he said: 'Mr. Governor, I would like
to box with you some time to skow you
how easy it is.'
"I promptly assurecP-him that if we
were ever matched by some designing
person, the match would be officially
declared off at once." '
Apparently Jeffries's grouch had dis
a backslider. Corbett talked almost
with tears in his eyes.
"He's just got to box," wailed Corbett
afterwards. "He ought to be going
after it hard right along. I talked to
him till I was black in the face."
But it did no jood. Jeffries calmly
ignored every protest and went his
own way. If anything he appeared
elated by the fact that his refusal to
box had disappointed 400 visitors who
rose early and rushed out to the camp,
expecting to catch him at an early
Batt Sees Jeff.
To Battling Nelson, former light
weight champion, Jeffries was most
cordial when the latter visited the
springs in the afternoon. Jeffries look
ed upon "Bat" as a "great little fight
er," to use his own words, and the pair
strolled around the grounds for a long
time, chatting about many things.
Nelson declared that he was amazed
by Jeffries's fine condition.
"His picture misled me,'"-said the
Battler. "Thev do not rio him justice.
Why, he looks fine."
Asked if he proposed to place any
bets on the fight, Bat said he thought
A Second Referee.
The matter of the second referee is
still up in the air. Rickard is anxious
by his own statement that Jack Glea
son should serve, but trite fighter's
camps had not been heard from on
this and no definite announcement was
forthcoming. Tex is determined that

tomorrow probably will be the last of
a- long training siege. Then the "drv-

Johnson did not box this morning,
but put in nine miles on the road at
a pace which tested the endurance of
his trainers to the utmost.
Governor Visits Johnson.
At Johnson's camp Tuesday, governor
r'ickerson, late in the afternoon, was
fortunate enough to catch the negro
champion just starting on the best
i workout he has indulged in since com
ing to Reno. It is quite probable that
the governor's coming had something
to do with the character of the spec
tacle furnished, but be that as it may,
Johnson did 12 rounds of fast boxing
while the state officials looked on.
Four rounds with Al Kaufman opened
and ran, followed by the officer and a
score of newsboys.
All three lads have been in trouble
with the, police before. Desmond is held
on a charge of theft under $50, Burnett
as a suspicious character and Hoke
on a charge of burglary. The latter's
father called at the police station Wed
nesday morning and told the detectives
that the bos was a bad one and that he
could do nothing with him. Thjeir cases
will be transferred to the county's jurisdiction.

Torn Sharljey, the heavyweight pu
gilist, who fought Jim Jeffries for the
championship and lost, was in El Paso
for a rshort time Tuesday. Sailor Tom
was on his way to Reno to see the
championship fight between the man
who broke all the slats in his body
when they fought 25 rounds for the
belt, and the negro.
While here, Sharkey hunted up Billy
Smith, an old friend in the figlting
days, and had a chat with him -about
the days when the two were in their
prime and -were in the active fighting
Sharkey is now located in Xew York,
where he runs a thirst parlor. He was
accompanied by Sam Austin, and Lew

CALIFORNIA; THEN TO ALASKA.
Mr. and Mrs. A. P. Coles will leave
next week for California for an auto
trip through the state. Their big Pack
ard car will be shipped to Los Angeles
and will be used for the tour of the
entire state, after which they will go to
Alaska for the remainder of the sum

body blows. They fooled around the
ring in fast style and Johnson ap
peared to hugely enjoy the sport of let

Johnson's IJrutai Practice.
"Kid" Cotton, the dusky sparring
partner, came up next. Johnson went
after him with playful vrciousness. He
drove the big black around the ring,
hammering away- with great good will
at any point Cotton failed to protect.
In the fourth round, the champion put
on steam and went after Cotton as it'
determined to take his scalp and put
him down for the count. Cotton
flinched to save himself from punish
ment. Jack tore himself loose with
one of his surprising displays of
strength. Twice he drove his left at
Cotton's head with terrific speed and
force. It was a "double left hook" in
ring parlance, and it ended the bout
for Cotton. He staggered and would
have toppled to the floor had the sec
onds not caught him.
Johnson was not ready to quit and
called Jlonahan, whom he kept dancing
around for two rounds. Dave Mills
was subjected to the champion's fire
for two more rounds. Then Johnson
started back to the hotel. Governor
Diekerson and Capt. Cox joined him,
and the three went up to Johnson's
room, where they chatted for some time.
Jeff on a Strike.
Out at Moana Springs, Jeffries went
on a strike for the day. He absolutely
refused to do work bej-ond a seven mile
road jaunt in the morning. Even the
visit of the governor failed to stir him
to action. Jim Corbett labored with
him like a camp meeting revivalist with
j friend of Jeffries, is credited with the
largest local wager yet placed on the
fight. It was stated at Jeffries's camp
that Vernon put up $3000 to 1S00 dur
ing the day, Jeffries to win. A record
of such a wager is reported by a local
