Waterloo, Iowa, July 5. (Special.)
The Islanders divided the Fourth of
July double bill yesterday afternoon
with the Boosters, taking the lirst bv
a margin of one run and losing the
3ame in an equally close score.
Though outhit in the first the
champs bunched their drives and
counted. Slattery's two-bagger in the
seventh gave the first run and in the
sixth an error by Clark and hits by
Slattery and O'Leary sewed up the
game. Waterloo was dangerous in the
ninth, but the side was put out after
one1 run was made.

' Tn the second game the Islanders
chased five runs across in the fifth
and apparently had it won, but Water
loo came back in the seventh and
nosed the champs out. Score of first

Unique Mixup Breaks Up Game Be
tween Port P.yron and .Jo--lm
in Seventh Inning.
The ball game at the celebration at
Woodward's grove near Port Byron
between Port Byron and Joslin broke
up in a fight in the seventh inning.
Port Byron was ahead, the score stand
ing 8 to 7 when the trouble started
and, strange to say, it was not the re-
suit of a difference of opinion over
anything vitally affecting the game. A
t Port Byron player drove the ball out
. ino right field among the crowd. The
Jcsiin right fielder went after it nnd,
; It io claimed by some, got bis hands
on the ball, which, however, got away
from him and went through a fence,
the runner scoring. The I'ort Byron
Itss gleefully proclaimed, ihe feat as
a home run and th? JoHn players
iisputed the point, asserting that the
right, fielder erred. In about two min
utes a free for ail was on. the umpire
Tind several ethers being handled a la
Johnson. Outsiders finally restored
. poace. but the ball game was not re
sumed. FIELDER J0?iE3 EACK liJ GAME

Reno, July 5. John Arthur John
son 13 the first and undisputed
heavyweight champion of the world.
James J. Jeffries of California, the
winner of 22 championship fights,
and a man who never was brought
to his knees before by a blow, last
night passed into history as a broken
idol. He met utter defeat; at the
hands of the black champion.
While Jeffries was not actually
counted out he was saved only from
this crowning shame by his friends
pleading with Johnson not to hit the
fallen man again, a fewel was
brought into the ring from his cor
ner. At the end of the 15th round. Ref
eree Rickard raised the black's arm,
and a great crowd filed out. glum and
silent. Jeffries was dragged to his
corner bleeding from the nose and
mouth and a dozen cuts on the face.
He had a closed eye, swollen features
and held his head in his hands,
Johnoon Hardly Mnrknl.
Johnson walked out of the ring
without hardly a mark.

not even a championship fight. Tef

that he was outclassed in every point
and after tlo 11th round it was hopeless-.
It was the greatest demonstration
the ring ever saw of the failure of a
fighter to "come back" after years
of retirement. Tho youth and science
of the black man made Jeffries lnolc
like a green man. The great JeiTries
was like a log. The reviled Johnson
was like a black panther, beautiful
in his alertness and defensive tactics.

Jeffries .fought by instinct, it seem
ed, showing gamoness and his great
fighting heart, but he was only a shell
of his old self.
After the third round Johnson
treated his opponent almost as a
joke. He smiled and blocked play
fully, warding off the bear like rushes
with marvelous science, now tucking
a blow under his arm, again plucking
it out of the air as a man stops a

The end was swift and terrible.
Jeffries had lost his power of de
fense. Johnson tore loose and before
the spectators were prepared for the
finish he had sent Jeffries down with
lightning like left and right blows to
the jaw. Jeffries fell. Those near

Corbett ran forward with out
stretched arris, crying: "Oh, go

fully raised himself to his feet. His
jaws had dropped and his eyes were
nearly shut. His face was covered
with blood as with trembling limbs
and yielding arms he tried to put up
After a terrific right smash to the
jaw, followed by two left hooks, he
went down again. Jeffries' physi

ring. "Stop it." they cried. "Don't

to the ringside calling to Bob Arm

know what I mean; don't let him get
hit." The referee declared Johnson
Mi-nine Attended To.
Soothing liquids were applied to
the fallen champion's .bruises on the
face, but his heart was something
that could not be reached. As soon
as he regained his senses he took his
head in his hands, groaned and said:

Burman, who had led nearly all the

seconds behind the winner. A pause

him the race.

Practically All Interest In Detail
lAbt Cheers for JeH Earlier
in the Contest.
What the average Rock Islander
thought of the outcome of the Jeffries
Johnson fight was vividly, shown in
the big crowd that received the re
turns in front of The Argus building on
Second avenue. When the final re
sult was flashed there was not a cheer,
not a single expression of Joy, and
within two minutes the mob of peopla
that had blocked Second avenue
melted away till there were but a com
parative few on the walks. Few li-l
any taste for the details. The story
was interesting while the suspcu.se
was on, but when the "flash" of the
outcome which had precedence over
anything coming In broke that sus
pense interest waned. There were
those, however, who awaited the de
tailed story and read it eagerly as It
was posted. Indeed throughout the
night there were people standing In
front of The Argus bulletins anxious
to discover how it all happened.
Flanh Ahrad of Final.
Fight returns were received over The
Argus' special wire, the Associated
Press report, round by round, Just as
printed in today's papers, being
given. The story of each round was
taken hot off the wire and read by meg
aphone by Happy Jack Vernon, who is
an expert In this line, and then posted
where those who desired might read
it more closely. The "flash" telling of
the outcome was received by The Ar
gus v.hen the story of several
rounds remained untold and It was at
once given to the waiting crowd. For
a moment there was absolute silence
while the meaning of the words of the
announcer was sinking In. Then there
was a sudden movement, and two min
utes later but a few dozen remained in
the half block that had been packcJ
till the street cars were moved through
Interest shown In the event was al
most equal to that of a presidential elec
tion. The wire service was prompt,
and the delays at this end correspond
ed exactly with the delays at the ring.
The opening of the contest was an

men squared away at Reno, 2,000 miles
away. When Jeffries seemed to have
