JEFFRIES SAYS HE WAS CERTAINLY DOPED
DOWNEY CASE ANOTHER BAD ONE FOR POLICE
JEFFRIES SAYS HE'S
CERTAIN IT HE
IS "DOPED" NOW
The Press Secures Exclusive Inter
view With Former Champion-He
Says He's Just Recovering From
Being ' 'Drugged/ 9
(Editor's Note.—Since the big fight at Reno, Jim Jeffries has had
nothing to say. Me has refused to discuss the affair. He has refused
to explain how he was whipped. He has refused to tell of his feelings'
while in the ring. He has refused to say whether or not he wr>u!d
fight again. For one week The Spokane Press has had William
Jacobs, a newspaper man and personal friend of Jeffries, with htm at
Catnlina Island, trying to make the big fellow talk. Jeffries persist
ently refused, but finally he consented to tell of the events before and
after the battle. ' And his statements are astounding. For over two
hours he sat on the porch of his Los Angeles home and talked with
Jacobs of that eventful day when he went down to defeat at the hands
of Johnson. This is the first interview Jeffries has given out since
the battle regarding his future actions and giving the reasons for his
miserable showing against Jack Johnson.—Editor The Press.)
BY WILLIAM JACOBS.
LOS ANGELES, Oal., Aug. 1:— M I am positively
through with the fight game. I will never step into the
ring again. This is final."
So spoke James J. Jeffries the day following his return
from a fishing trip to Catalina Island, where he went im
mediately after the big fight. Stretched out on a big
couch in his den at his Los Angeles home, the big fellow
thus dropped the everlasting crusher on the hopes of those
of his friends who tSft-ught that at some time he would
seek a return match with Jack Johnson.
"ALL THE COIN I NEED."
"No amount of coin can ever
tempt me-—no promoter induce me
to take another fling at. the ling
game,'' continued Jeffries. "I have
ail the money I need to Keep my
Wife and myself in comfort for the
rest of our lives anil 1 don't want
a cent more. 1 know that Tex Hick
