RACE PROBLEM AHEAD.
Thinks United States Is Goinsr To Have
Trouble as a Result of Johnson's
Victory Over Jeffries.
Lpndon, Eng., July 7. The racial
conflicts following the Jeffries-Johnson
fight are the theme of general discus

admission is that Johnson's victory has
made the problem for the United Stases
much harder than pefore.

'It Is useless to hold up the hand of
reprobation here. These things are
brutal and vile, but behind them lies the
absolute necessity to keep the negro
race a little in check for if It once
gets out of hand, there will be worse
scenes under the Stars and Stripes than
have ever yet been witnessed there."

would not be more tolerant."
