of Wallace. This veteran of the
diamond is playing about as good
ball now as he ever did, and be
lieve me that spells QRANO.

Corbett's Bout With Sulli

BY MAX BALTHASAR
RENO. Nev.. June 24. —James J.
Jeffries smiled yesterday and the
grouch fled. The smile is playing
a return engagement today and the
human oak is as cheerful as the
force of trainers and humorists in
his camp could possibly wish. The
result is a lot of vim and dash in
his work that is showing the inter
ested spectators about the camp
that Jeffries' condition is as good as
his friends have claimed it is.
The disposal of .lohn 1,. Sulli
van by James .1 Corbett is one of
the little incidents that has done
much to put the retired champion
in his present excellent spirits. To
day Sullivan is about the most dis
gusted man in Reno, and you have
to listen a long time at Moana to
hear a word of sympathy for h'm.
"He pot exactly what was corn
trip to him." is the general com
ment around the Jeffries camp on
the diplomatic, but convincing
manner in which Corbett affixed
the can to the old title holder.
Corbett. who has a sympathetic
strsin. was sorry that the incident
had to occur, "but it was the only
thing I could do," he said.
Knowing that Jeffries did not
want to see Sullivan and that he
did not want to talk to him. Cor
bett stepped into the breach and
acted as buffer, fearing a meeting
between the two fighters might re
sult in upsetting Jeffries and
bring back the dreaded "grouch."

TRUTH OF CASE
Not until after The Press appeared yesterday afternoon with
the first true version of the shooting of Joe Curry, age 20, of
Astoria, Ore., by Officer Lee Downey did the police department
or the prosecuting attorney's office evince any interest in get
ting at the facts in one of the most high handed, unjustifiable,
vicious and brutal attempts to take human life ever perpetrated
After the appearance of The Press last night one of the eye
witnesses of the affair was summoned to the police station
and questioned by Chief Sullivan. This man gave the facts in
such a way that there was no use further to whitewash the
affair and Officer Downey was suspended "pending further
After this version of the affair was given to the police Dow
ney sought out ,th e witness and took him to task, with the
remark. "I thought that you were my friend." The man replied
that he was his friend, but that when it came to telling the
truth in a matter that might mean the life or death of a human
being friendship did not count.
In view of the facts that have been obtained by The Press
from at least a dozen witnesses the statement of Chief Sulli
van that "the insinuation that he (Downey) shot out of anger is
despicable" appears ridiculous. The facts will show that If Chief
Sullivan made that remark he was deliberately telling what
was not true or else had not taken the pains to learn the facts.
Chief Sullivan and the police department had everything nicely
arranged to cover up the case and shield Downey, even to tup
pressing the facts in the newspapers friendly to the puiico.
