It hardly can be said that Johnson's
departure from the city, which is
scheduled to take place Nov. 30, is
at ali of his own volition. His recent
loss of reputation did not worry him
much. He- apparently grieved for a
few days because of his wife's death
and then sought solace with his white
When the city, county and federal
authorities stepped in and took his
white sweetheart away from him a
few days ago, Johnson tried to use
the winnings of bis ring battles to
win back his girl. He tired of this,
however, and gave it. up.
GIVE KJtOrKOtT BLOW.
During the last 24 hours Johnson
was told that he could not remain in
the saloon business. That was the
final blow for the pugilist, and for the
first time in his career he had to ad
mit that a "knockout punch" had
struck blm in a vital part, his pocket
book. Johnson said last night that he had
so'.d bis saloon for $25,000 to Henry
Sterett. The new owner will have
to get a saloon license, as a brewery
owned the one under which Johnson's
place was operated and refused to
consent to the pugilist again having j
a renewal or the license. The license
was renewed, but not to Johnson. It
was given to Theodore Selle, 244
Norti Clark street.
TO FKillT l ftt'SMA.
"I am going to fight in Russia,"
said Johnson, "I don't care if I never
come back to Chicago. As far as the
saloon business is concerned I don't
want to hear about It again."
"Is the man who bought the saloon
a white man?" was asked Johnson.
"I don't know," replied Johnson.
"He looked white, but then you can't
always tell by looking or talking to
a person these days whether thsy are
white or not."
"What are you going to do with the
por' rails ou have In the saloon?"
was another question asked.
"Why, the new owner is to have
them for a year," said Johnson. "After
that I may take them wherever I de
cide to live. If ever I come back to
Chlcuso I may have the pic'ures taken
over to my mother's home."
Kichard Klogin of Purls, who says
he represents the owners of the Aqua
rium Gardens, Moscow, Russia, gave
Johnson a certified check for $5,000

TO MEET SAM MeVEY.
"Johnson has signed an agreement,"
said Klegin, "to fight Sam McVey for
a parse of $30,000 and one-third of
the proceeds of the moving pictures.
He will leave Chicago on Nov. 30 for
Moscow for a series of ring battles. I
have no connection with the Russian
enterprise. I acted simply on in
structions from the syndicate which
has engaged Johnson."
As far as is known there never
has been a prize fight in Russia.
Whether the residents of the Russian
city, and the authorities as well, will
welcome Johnson is a speculation.
However, that is for the promoters
of the proposed fight to worry about.
Johnson has a check for a comfort

MAY BE HELD FOR TRIAL.
The federal authorities may inter
fere with Johnson's plans for leaving
America. He is liable to be indicted
by the local federal grand Jury for
his exploits with white women ana
may have to stand trial before a
If an indictment is returned against
the pugilist it is likely that, in view
of his announcement to leave the
country, the federal authorities will
place his bonds at such a high amount
that Johnson would have to win sever
al fistic battles to make it worth while
to forfeit his bonds.
Within the laBt month several
things have happened to Johnson. First
his wife committed suicide. Then
he was arrested for causing the de
linquency of a white girl. Then he
suffered a country-wide denunciation
from the white and black races. Then
the promoters of the Australian prize
fighting game told him they did not
want him and canceled is proposed
bouts. The final chapter came yester
day when Johnson was forced to sell
