tho governor's instructions Attorney
General Webb has indicated that
steps will bo taken at once to stop
the Langford-Ketchel go, scheduled
for Saturday. Since this battle is
only two days away, whatever action
is taken must bo tnkon with all pos
sible haste, and a decision in the
matte rof this fight will covor exactly
the same points as will be covered in
the proceedings against tho Fourth
of July contest, tho decision over the
Langford fight will practically settle
tho Jeff rioi -Johnson case.
If tho fight is stopped attorneys
here today declare there Is hardly a
possibility that tho bigger battlo can
be pulled off in California. Should
tho fli;ht be stopped and an appeal
taken, attorneys declare that it is
extremely unlikely that any effort to
stage the big battlp could bo made.'
since there would bo an added ele
ment of uncertainty that would make
the risk of financial loss so great that
promoters and principals would not
care to face the risk.
Slnco affairs have taken this turn
the eyes of tho sporting world today
are turned on the Langford-Kaufman
battle and it is for the time being
overshadowing in importance the
If the courts refuso to grant an
injunction against the Langford fight
and the 6iJornoygeneral carries out
instructions to bring criminal pro
ceedings against the fighters and pro?
motors it is expected this also will
influence the final decision regarding
the Jeffjies show, 'according to at
torneys. The uncertainty that would
follow would have a dispiriting effect
on tho promoters of the big fight, and
it is believed that it may hurt "gate
receipts." Therefore, tho moves of
the officials against tho Langford
Kaufman show will hold the center
of the stage, attorneys say.
In tho meantime Gleason and Rlck
ard, who had a long conference with
their attorneys last night, are ready,
to fight today. They declare there
Is absolutely nothing in tho law to
prevent such a contest as the one
