SPORTINGNEWS, Ban Johnson Gires Inkling of Next Year's Flans. Thinks the American League Will Have Ten Teams. BLACKLISTS MILLER. Punishment For the Ex-Detroit Jumping Pitcher. Washington Players Say They Will Remain Loyal. Philadelphia, July 26. President Ban Johnson, the watch tower of the Ameri can League, was on guard in this city today. Mr. Johnson's sudden ap pearance in this city late last night caused surprise. He intimated that changes in the American League cir cuit next year were likely and that the organization may consist of ten clubs. There were rumors that even if an eight-club league is continued Baltimore find Detroit may ba dropped for New York and Pittsburg. Mr. Johnson's presence in this city may or may not have been responsible for the shutting down of the rumor fac tory. A full holiday was declared In all departments of this interprising con cern, whose home is everywhere and no wrtere. Upon his arrival here, President John son sent out an official notice blacklist ing Roscoe Miller, the former Detroit pitcher, who jumped" to the New York club, and suspending the ex-Baltimore players and Wolverton pending action by the league. The notice says of Mil ler: "The tolerance of such players would be a menace to life and the good repute of baseball." President Johnson while in Washing ton talked with Delehanty, Orth and Wolverton, all of whom assured him they would remain loyal to the Ameri can League. Manager Dwyer, of the Detroit club, today signed Ollie Faulkner, of the Woonsocket (R. I.) team, for the bal ance of .his season and next year, the terms being $500 per month. Woon socket first became historic as the borne of Napoleon Lajoie. Racing at Cleveland. Cleveland, July 26 The winner of each of the four races on the card at Glennville came from the stable of Hudson & Gatcom, Lexington, Ky. It , was Hudson who did the driving, and in winning everything in sight he set a world's record for performances of the sort. Only one of the winners was a first choice, and the big betting men lost heavily. The owners of the win- ning string went into the betting ring and it is reoorted that they took out $40,000. K. E. Smathers of New York backed Shadow Chimes to win the 2:06 pace, and the defeat of the horse is said to. have cost him $15,000. Nick Hubinger selected the Hudson horses, The winning started in the fast pace, when AuiVibon Boy outraced Shadow Chimes in the final heat. Shadow Chi -nes was always a 2 to 1 favorite in the betting. The drive in the first heat was a wild one, and McDonald was fined ?50. Chase, a 2 to 1 shot, won the 2:20 trot without trouble, making a second -victory for Hudson. The 2:16 was split up, and Hudson be gan driving in the ' third heat under orders from the Judges. . , . Alice Russell started to win in the fourth and outlasted the tired field. Hudson's layup in the first two heats cost him $200. Silver Sign, the even money favorite, was never dangerous. The real surprise was sprung in the last race, in which Hudson appeared with Twinkle, nearly always a 40 to 1 chance. Heavy favorite Roamer took the first heat, and had the second well in hand at the last eighth. Then like a flash Twinkle came from the bunch, winning in very fast time. The next two heats were won by the mare, brushing it out in the stretch. Hud son was give a tremendous ovation by the 9,000 spectators. Kelley Not Claimed. New York, July 26. President Eb betts of the Brooklyn team has proved that John T. Brush was correct in all his assertions regarding Joe Kelley. Mr. Bbbetts announces that the Brooklyn club will not make a fight for Kelley. The reason for this change by the Brooklyn club, Kbbetts says, "is for the good of the cause," as this is a time "for all hands in the National League to pull together." Ebbetts is said to have tried to get Shortstop Gochnaur, of Cleveland, to jump to Brooklyn. It is said that Tom Browne, who covered left field for Philadelphia until a couple of weeks ago, also will be signed by Mc Graw. Denver Ed. Martin Won. London, July 26 The contest between Bob Armstrong and Denver Ed Martin, the American pugilists for the colored championship of the world, which took place at Crystal palace last night,- at . traded a great crowd. Armstrong . started in a favorite, but his perform ance did not justify this as Martin prov ed to ba the more clever -of the . two from the outset and never gave-his opponent a chance, being declared an easy winner on points at the close of the fifteenth round.

To a New York reporter, McGraw said : "It Is to be no more 'Muggsy.' Just cut that out, and I will show you that I can be a gentleman." Roscoe Miller has been a disgruntled man ever since his team started the re cent losing streak. Such men aa he are better off in the National. Bob Evans and Sparks have been re leased by New York. The former is a crack slab man, and McGraw's eye for a good man seems to nave left him. Detroit's two new men. who lolned the team Monday, made good with their batting sucks in their first game, each getting in two singles and two runs. Mike Donlin will be released from durance vile on August 16. He will then join the Cincinnati team. With Kelly ana seymour in tne outer patch with him. it will be a fast field.

Crawford "White in a Hospital 'v , After ,100 Day Test. CONDITION IS CRITICAL Head Bell "Boy" of a Kansas Citj Hotel Had a Theory. Tiled to Improve His Health by r Starving Process.;; KansasCity. Kan.. July 26. Crawford Jerome -white, head bell "boy" at the Midland Hotel, lies very near death at St. Margaret's hospital, to which place be was removed from the hotel several days ago. His condition is the outcome of an effort to demonstrate a theory of his own that one scant meal a day is sufficient to maintain life properly. White, who is an eccentric old negro, was brought to Kansas City last year from Milwaukee by Mr. King and Mr. Hall when they assumed the manage ment of the Midland. Being 51 years of age and not exceptionally strong the change . of climate affected him ad versely. Each time be felt indisposed White attributed his condition to over eating. Finally, about April 1, he made up his mind that three meals a day was more than nature called for and he decided to take less nourishment. Accordingly he began, about April 5, to eat but one meal a day, his idea, being to see what effect 100 days of partial starvation would have on his health. The meal White ate daily was al ways a very frugal one, frequently nothing more than a couple of slices of toast and a cup of coffee, tea or glass of milk. He dined at 11:30 a. m. promptly, and nothing could induce him to partake of more nourishment until the same hour the following day. Ha felt no evil effects of his diet, he de clared, and each day if he could he cur tailed the food allowance further. The old negro actually gloried in his "test" even when he grew so weak he could hardly preform the lightest duties con nected with his position. Crawford grew thinner every day, it seemed. Stolidly he stuck to his pur pose, however, turning a deaf ear to all suggestions and even entreaties, madel by bis friends at the hotel, that he re sume his former diet. Each time he was asked about his health he would de clare: "I'm feelin' better than ever." About ten days ago the old negro completed his one hundred-day "test" and began taking more nourishment. It was too late, however. The more he ate, it seemed, the weaker he grew and finally he was compelled to give up working altogether. Five days ago, upon the advice of Dr. E. F. Robinson, who lives at the Midland, White was sent to St. Margaret's hospital. White has served as a bell boy and as chief bell boy for nearly 22 years. Twenty-one years he spent at the Planklngton hotel in Milwaukee. He is a native of Arkansas and possesses the politeness and faithfulness of the old fashioned southern darkey. During his long hotel service Crawford has become widely known and he classes as his "ac quaintances" many of the most dis tinguished men of the United States. Bernard Phelps, a clerk at the Mid land, has known White 16 years. He says the old negro has always been faithful, sober and willing to do his share of the work. Crawford is a bach elor.

Evidence Leads Him to Believe It Was Prearranged. AS JEFFRIES-RUHL1N. Unless He Is Shown Differently Will Allojr No More. Not Sure That the Best Man Was the Winner. ENDS IN THE EIGHTH. Big Boilermaker Defeats Fitz simmons Suddenly. --: Cornish man Had Best of Fight i'or Seven Bounds. . Tast Crowd Was Present, With $31,880 Gate Receipts. San Francisco, July 26. Mayor Schmitz has given out the following statement for publication: "From the information I have re ceived I am forced to believe that this exhibition is no better than the pre vious ones we have had. namely, the Jeffries-Ruhlin and Gans-McFadden and others, and it will do much toward discouraging the sport in this city. In fact, unless some indubitable evidence is produced to disprove the information furnished me by the Examiner I shall hereafter have to prohibit all such pro fessional 'fake' exhibitions. (Signed) "E. H. SCHMITZ, "Mayor of San Francisco." When seen at bis office today Mayor Schmitz was very emphatic in his as sertion that, should he be convinced after a thorough investigation that last night's contest between Fitzsimmons and Jeffries was a pre-arranged affair. he would do all in his power to prohibit future prize fights in this city. Mayor Schmitz has been very much disgusted with many of the recent fights which have taken place in this city, it being evident that they were prearranged af fairs and that the best man did not al ways win, and it is expected that the fighting game in this city will be for ever killed should conclusive evidence be adduced to prove the assertion of certain persons, who are supposed to be well informed on the matter, that the Fltzsimtnons-Jeffries bout was a fake. There is a wide difference of opinion in this city as to the character of last night's fight between Jeffries and Fitz simmons. The charge that the fight was a fake and that it had been pre-arranged for Fitzsimmons to go out in the eighth round, does not meet with gen eral belief, although there is no doubt that Mayor Schmitz was warned that the fight was 'fixed to end in the eighth round. Even those who charge fraud admit that it was a magnificent fight while it lasted. Fitzsimmons was hit ting Jeffries .almost at will, but while his blows cut and stung, they did not seriously injure the big champion. Fitz simmons, when seen this morning, was apparently much distressed . at the charge of fake. He declared that he had fought his best, but that ne could not stand Jeffries' terrific body blows. Jeffries also denied that the fight was fixed. He said that Fitzsimmons had given him the hardest fight he ever had and that they were good honest punches that put both out. Jeffries' face was sore and cut today, but otherwise be was feeling well. The trainers , of the two men also in dignantly resent any charge of crook' edness, but the fact remains that infor mation' was given to Mr. Naughton, ot the Examiner, the day before the fight, that it was to end in the eighth round. Naughton's information came from some one who was with Jeffries at Har bin Springs and the tip was given to bet on Jeffries to win in the eighth. Not' withstanding this there is no evidence of heavy betting, much of the wagers made here being small. San Francisco, July 26. Now that the Jeffries-Fitzsimmons contest for the world's championship is over the cry of "fake" has been raised though without justification in the opinion of Referee Graney. George Siler and the great ma- jority of other sporting men who wit nessed the contest. A communication sent to Mayor Schmitz before the fight, to be opened after it was ended, stated that the writer had been informed that Jeffries was to win in the eighth round, which he did. The mayor has stated that if the charge that the contest was a prearranged afiair cannot be ais proved, he will be compelled to prohibit such exhibitions hereaiter. Referee Graney says: "I think the contest was legitimate, urom a re feree's standpoint the fight was as near perfect as a fight could be. There were no fouls not even a semblance of a foul. I had to caotion them once, but this was not for anything that either did to the other, but for their bumping into me. It was the greatest fight I ever saw and I doubt if there will ever be another like it." "It is absolutely ridiculous to talk of the fight being a fake, said Wm. Le- laney. "There never was a fight in which there was less reason to doubt that it was being fought on the square. Jeffries said: "Of course the fight was on the square. It is ridiculous to talk of anything else. Fitzsimmons fought a hard fight, the gamest I ever saw. He worked hard all the time and when I got in the deciding blow on him he was taken off his guard. After I toad my eye cut Delaney told me to start in ana finish him, for fear that I would be blinded and would be Unable to keep on fighting." Fitzsimmons is equally emphatic ' In his assertion that it was a hard fought. legitimate battle. George Siler wrote of the fight that Bob Fitzsimmons, although beaten. proved conclusively that he is, or rath er was, the greatest fighter that ever stepped into an American prize ring. The Chronicle this morning says:- There was no taint or suspicion com ing from any quarter that the contest was not strictly fair and the best man won. Surely no other encounter of the kind ever waged combined alt the good qualities of that tougnt last evening. The Call says: For seven rounds Robert Fitzsimmons made a pitiable spectacle of the young Hercules from the South and then fell under just such a blow as that with which he won the world's championship from Corbett at Carson on that memor able 17th of March, 1S97. The Examiner insists that the fight was, a rake Tjure ana simple." James Jeffries will receive 60. per cent and Robert Fitzsimmons 40 per cent of SZ3.91Q. which is 75 per cent of t the gross receipts of the fight, $3L880 having been received through "the sale of seats. Jeffries will receive $14,348 and Fitzsimmons will add $9,564 to his bank account. . - The share of -the San Francisco Ath letic club is $7,970. Out -of this it must pay the expenses of the fieht. including $500 for the referee. - Jeffries' manager, Delaney, referring to the champion's future plans, said: we win consider the challenge or Corbett and determine whether or not it is reasonable. I don't know what his proposition is. If he means business we will-meet him and take care of him Jeffries is young and strong and has no intention oi quitting the ring. DETAILS OF THE FIGHT. San Francisco, July 26 Robert Fitz simmons had all hopes of regaining the heavyweight championship of the world dashed forever Jn the eighth round here last nignt by James J. Jeffries, who held the championship ever since he knocked out "Old Freckles" June 9. 1899. at Coney Island. The ex-champion made one of the gamest fights in his career and at times had Jeffries plainly wor ried, i ne loot work of the Cornishman was marvelous and much of his old time cleverness and generalship - was displayed. The end came suddenly. At S o"clock Fitzsimmons- made the following talk to an Associated Press man' in his dressing room- near the Val encia street entrance: . "I am ready for the battle. I am con fident of winning .and will finish things up as promptly as I can. ' You can sav for me that I am as good tonight as I ever was in my life. .Talk is vain now. Nothing remains but to fight." When asked as to his weight, Fitz simmons replied:. "Oh, about 158 or 16U." He added that when he fought Jeffries at Coney Island he weighed 156 pounds. As Fitzsimmons had not weighed in the presence of any outsiders recently his exact weight Is problematical. - - Jeffries, according to Delaney, weigh ed in the afternoon 215 pounds. These figures might be stated as about 217 pounds at ring side. At 8:43 the house was practically fill ed. The late Jack Demsey's belt, which was brought here from Portland, was brought to the ring and exhibited for the purpose of selling tickets for the benefit of Dempsey's widow and children. "Volunteers were called for among those active in the ring to act as solicitors. Among those volunteering were Joe Gans, Jimmy Britt and young Peter Jackson. - At 8:46 Jeffries arrived on the ground and went to his dressing room. He was accompanied by Billy Delaney, Jack Jeffries and Joe Kennedy. At 8:47 the principals of the prelimi nary appeared in the ring. They were Dave Barry and Harry Folet, both of San Francisco. They fight at middle weight. The preliminary fight was ended at 9:35 p. m. by Foley knocking out Barry in the eleventh round. Immediately the crowd became impatient and there was a good deal of stirring about and visit ing among the well known characters at the ringside. The appearance of about a dozen women in one party caused a mo mentary flurry. They took seats in a box directly back of the press row. After the preliminary there occurred a long wait, during which the crowd called to each other across the ring and shouted for the big men to come on. It was reported that Eddie Graney, who had been selected as referee, wished to be paid $500 for his services, while the managers thought $200 sufficient re muneration. Kid McFadden, the little fighter who just returned from Eng land "took advantage of the weight to get himself introduced as the chanpion featherweight. The Kids reception, however, was very chilly, and he mads his exit quickly. The crowd wanted nothing at this time but the big men. At 10:05 p. m. Bob Fitzsimmons step ped into the ring, carrying his gloves and dressed in a long, light blue bath robe. Following him were Clark Bell, Hank Griffin, George Dawson and a bottleholder. At 10:06 Jeffries stepped Into the ring, dressed in a long overcoat, a sweater and a Panama hat. About him were Billy Delaney, Joe Kagan. Joe Kennedy and George Miller. Jeffries walked up and inspected Fitzsimmons' bandages, passing them without comment. Bota men were given a warm reception. .Fitzsimmons first took the northwest corner, but a moment later moved to the northeast, and finally to the south west corner. The champion took the northwest. CORBETT ISSUES A CHALLENGE. Jim Corbett sent a challenge to fight the winner. This was received with ap plause. but when a moment later the announcer stated that Sharkey sent a challenge there was considerable hoot ing and jeering. The men finally changed corners, Fitz. Simmons taking the northeast and Jef fries the southwest. Fitz wore bandages on both hands. Jeffries wore no bandages. Fitz took his stool and sat quietly chewing gum. He looked well, slightly older than when he last fought in San Francisco, but much the same otherwise. The announcer stated that the forfeit aioney had been returned to the princi pals and the club. . Jeffries looked confident and sat in his corner chewing gum while the little preliminary announcements were being made. Fitz donned his gloves, which were a light maroon. . Jeffries' were very dark red. - Ben Solomon was timekeeper for the club, Edward Wheeler - for- Fits and Billy Gallagher for Jeffries. When Jeffries stripped off his sweater be showed up to perfection. He looked as if he had taken off considerable weight, but his muscles stood firm and hard. His flesh was as brown as a berry, showing the effects of the bard work. Fitzsimmons was introduced first; and was given quite as hearty a greeting as that which, greeted the champion a moment later. Bob doffed his dressing gown, showing up in splendid shape. He wore short lavender tights and a belt of the American flag.- Eddie Gra ney, the referee, was attired in the con ventional evening dress. The men were photographed -with hands clasped in the center of the ring. 10:19 p. m. Graney delivered his in structions to the men. 10:25 p. m. The men took their cor ners. While Jeffries- fixed his belt Bob tested the ring by Jumping around the floor. ... It was th draught horse and the racer from the tap of the gong. When the men came together Fitzsimmons appeared rather worried, but upon the opening of the .first round he assumed an air of absolute confidence and fought with the deliberation of the general that he is. As early as the second round Fitz had Jeffries bleeding profusely from mouth and nose. Again and again he landed on his bulky opponent, get ting away in such a clever manner that it brought down the great bouse with cheers. It seemed Indeed, that Jeffries could scarcely weather out the gale. Then the eighth round came and under a series of hot exchanges Fitzsimmons paused with his guard down and spoke to the champion.
