Waterloo, Iowa, July 5. (Special.)
The Islanders divided the Fourth of
July double bill yesterday afternoon
with the Boosters, taking the first bv
a margin of one run and losing the
3anie in an equally close score.
Though oirthit in the first the
champs bunched their drives and
counted. Slattery's two-bagger in the
Eeventh 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
onev run was made.
Had Second Won.
' 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-lin
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 th? seventh inning.
Port Byron was ahead, the score stand
ing S to 7 when the trouble started
and, strange to sny, it was not the re
sult of a difference of opinion over
anything vitally affecting the game. A
Port Byron player drove the ball out
lno right field among the crowd. The
Jcsiin right fielder went after it and,
It lo claimed by some, got his hands
Dn the ball, which, however, got away
from him and went through a fence,
the runner scoring. The Port Byron
Itos gleefully proclaimed iho feat as
i home run and th? JosMn players
lisputed the point, assorting that the
i.7ht fielder erred. In about two min
Jtes a free for all was on. the umpire

Reno, July 5. John Arthur John
son is 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, fit 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 towel 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,
Johnxon Hardly Marked.
Johnson walked out of the ring
without hardly a mark.
Ring experts agreed that was
not even a championship fight. Jef
fries had a chance in the second,V
hajs, but after the sixth it was pia H
jthat he was outclassed in every point
j and after Oe 11th round it was hope-
I It was the greatest demonstration
j the ring ever saw of the failure of a
fighter to "come back" after years
'of retirement. The youth and science
j of the black man made Jeffries look
like a green man. The great Jeffries
was liko a leg. The reviled Johnson
was like a black panther, beautiful
in his alertness and defensive tactics.
Jrflf Ji'iownl f.amc'nfNM.
Jeffries ought by instinct, it seem
ed, showing ganieness 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

There was no hint of the famous

The end was swift and terrible.
Jeffries had lost his power of de

finish he had sent JetTries down with
lightning like left and right blows to

Soothing liquids were applied to

that could not be reached. As soon
as he regained his senses he took his
head in his hands, groaned and said:

Liost Cheers for Jeff 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 peopJa
that had blocked Second avenue 1:.J
melted away till there were but a com
parative few on the walks. Few Itu 1
any taste for the details. The story
was interesting while the suspense
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.
Flaoh A brad 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
t'ven. The Etory of each round was
taken hot off the wire and read by meg
aphone by Happy Jack Vernon, who 1
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 finking 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
nounced within 10 minutes after the
men squared away at Reno, 2,000 miles
away. When Jeffries seemed to have
a temporary advantage the crowd

The handling of the story of the big
fight marked a departure from a cus
