give me his gloves."
Corbett and Joe Choynskl and his
brother Jack and others were ready
to cry, but they united In trying to
cheer the defeated man.
Johnson stood in the center of the
ring and received the congratulations
of Billy Delaney and his other seconds.
As he talked to Delaney he was breath
ing absolutely normal. He was not
hurt in any way. Sig. Hart said to the

poor old fellow, Jack."
"Xo, I don't owe him anything,
now," said Johnson.

Later he went to Jeffries" corner, but
Jim Corbett and Jack O'Brien waved
him away. When he returned to his
own corner the crowd in the ring was
so dense that the police had to beat
them back. The first man to congrat
ulate him in his corner was John L.
Jeffries was attended by his physi
cian as he sat in his corner. He sat
shaking his head sadly for a few min
utes and then was led to his dressing
room. Soon afterwards he was taken
to his camp at Moana Springs As
soon as the men left the ring the
crowd began the destruction of the
ring. The ropes were cut into bits,
the canvas ripped up and snipped into
small pieces, and even the stayles that
held the canvas were unscrewed and
taken as souvenirs.
The short end betting men are hi
larious, but in the great mass of
spectators there was a feeling of per
sonal loss. They could not help ad
miring Johnson. Hundreds swallowed
the bitter pill of heavy financial loss.
Statement by Timekeeper.
. George Harting, the timekeeper,
said: "Time was called at 2:45. The
tight lasted 15 rounds. Time for the
last round was 2:27. The fight was
stopped at 3:41.
"In the 15th - there were three
knockdowns. The first two of these
were each of nine seconds. The last
was of eight seconds. Then Jeffries'
seconds rushed in and the referee
gave the decision to Johnson. There
is no doubt that, independent of this
action, Jeffries would have been
Xo Power In Punch.
"With the exception of a few fast
rounds, the fight was tame. Jeffries
did not have the power in his punch
to hurt Johnson after he had received
blow after blow on the jaw. Even
before th?s Jeff could not reach the
black. His blows landed with all the
speed taken out of them. It was ITke
hitting a punching bag.
Rickard Fralaes Block.
Tex Rickard, the referee, said:
"Jack Johnson is the most wonder
ful fighter that ever pulled on a
glove. He won as he pleased and
was never in danger. I could not
help but feel sorry for the big white
man as he fell beneath the cham
pion's blows. It was a most pitiable
sight. As a matter of fact, I thought
way down in my heart that Jack

LOGIC VS. THE PROMOTER
It has long since been demonstrated, at large cost of
money invested, that certain forms of public service are
not best conducted when duplicate organizations exist to
perform them. Take for instance, the business
of making and distributing gas for fuel and illumin
ating purposes. Duplication of service is entirely possi
ble, yet is economically wrong, because either plant, or
either management, or either set of superintendents, or
either organization, would be capable of performing the
function for which both are provided.
But once there are two telephone enterprises operat
ing in the same community the demands of both for rev
enue become a double tax upon the body of the public,
which is simple waste. The duplication of such service
is invariably attended with much greater expense and in
convenience than would be attendant upon monopoly.
These arguments, however, are usually wasted upon the
promoters of such enterprises. They are not nearly so
greatly interested in serving the public in the very best
and cheapest way as they are in serving themselves and'
their own interests. Michigan Investor.
After an experience of eight years in the tri-cities the
owners of the plants of the Union Electric Telephone com
pany are ready to subscribe to the above opinion. The
plants of the Union Electric Telephone company were in
stalled by promoters. The properties afterward were
taken over by nine eastern capitalists. They were busi
ness men, unfamiliar with the intricacies of telephone
operation. Seven of these men have withdrawn, and the
properties are now in the hands of three of the original
purchasers. They firmly believed, when they took over
the properties, that they had made a good profit-earning
investment. But the result has been the opposite. The
Union Electric Telephone company has lost money every
day since it was purchased from the promoters. The
three men who are operating it today have convinced
themselves that the tri-city public will not support two
telephone systems. The books of the Union Electric Tele
phone company tell the story. The owners are therefore
asking that they be permitted to dispose of their proper
ties, and to that end are seeking consent to do so from
the city councils. It will be possible to realize on the
physical assests only buildings, equipment, etc. From
these they hope to realize only a small percentage of the
amount which they have invested.
