Scheme Meets With the Approval of
"'. a Xuniher of the liasehall Fans
; ' in Tliat City. . . '
San Francisco, Cal.. Sept. ,11.
Jack Johnson walked down Market
street with giant strides ' .yesterday
attracting "as much attention as a
whole minstrel parade. The negro
champion wore a big red rose in the
buttonhole of his light colored coat,
had his lOnglish hat cocTted on one
side of his bullet-like head and had
a wide smile for everybody he met.
"Mistan jenries win Kin me-, en:
said Johnson. "I heard 'em say that
a thousand times yesterday an early
before I got up some loafer rang me
on the telephone to say the same
thing. Now I am right heah in ole
San Francisco ready to talk fight.
"The question I want to ask is jes'
this: Where am Mistah Jeffries
bring him nlong, I'm perfectly willing
to be killed."
k Opinion of t'onwrvnllv.
While conservatice followers of the
fight game in San Francisco feel that
Jeffries must be the real Jeffries in
order to . dispose of Johnson, the
greater majority of the patrons of
the ring'events are still shouting that
Jeffries will make Jack Johnson jump
over the ropes. They are even saying
that Stanley Ketchel will whip John
son next month, which goes to show
how deep the feeling of prejudice
against the negro heavyweight is in
. On Johnson's masterly showing
against poor Al Kaufman Ketchel
doesn't ligure any better than the
short end of a 10 to 4 bet. Ketchel
will fight the . only way he knows.
whioh i In tpnr in nnri eltiv lifco n
wild man. This kind of fighting is
made to order for Jack Johnson. He
will go about the. job of whipping
Ketchel as systematically and with
the equal success of a cook plucking
the feather from a dead fowl. Wheth--er
Johnson will knock Ketchel out
is another question.

Los Angeles. . al., Sept.' 1 1. It ap
pears as if Jim Barry, the big Chi
cago heavyweight doesn't care to
have anything to do with Jack John
son in the ring. .He notified match
maker Hancock of the Pacific Athlet
ic club yesterday that owing to his
poor physical condition, he would be
unable to train for the battle. Coast
boxing fans are declined to believe
Barry is deliberately sidestepping the
colored giant, although he won't ad
mit it. (

Decatur Review: The latest addi
tion to the Three-Eye circuit, by roue
of the sporting paper, is Jacksonville.
The town there has just awoke to the
fact that one of the old Three-Eye
teams might be dropped this year, and
they can see no other town in the
state for the place but themselves.
Just what Danville will think of their
assertions would be hard to tell.
