capable of making ome kind of showing
before 1dm, two or more years may pas:.
"Now, two years of Idleness will spoil
any man, and. In the event that Jeffries
has to wait that long. I khall advl'.e him
never to flsht attain. If he can get a
fijjht by next winter, as far as I am con
cerned, I shall he pleased to have him take
That tense air of suppressed excitement
which Is usually perceptible on the eve of
a great champlonrhlp battle was. If not
wholly lacking, considerably toned down.
Tho spectacle of long lines of eager ap
plicants standing for hours block deep In
anticipation cf tho opening of tho box
office was not witnessed. The San Fran
cisco sporting fraternity seemed to be Im
bued with the Idea that the outcome was
a foregone conclusion.
Not so with the out-of-town delegations,
however, who came Into the city onlevery
train. Tho great majority of these people
looked with favor on Munroe. In fact,
this clement made up nlmoot two-thirds of
tho house. Thry camo from the various
small towns and the cities of California,
but nearlv-evcry Faciflc and Western
plateau State was represented. Few sport
ing men east of the Rockies journeyed
across the continent to sec the fight. It
was estimated by the promotora that per
haps fifty would be an outside figure for
such as these.
For a couple of houra before the open
ing of the box office a long line of sports
men from the small Interior towns, to
gether with the host that was to con
stitute the gallery gods' brigade, awaited
the opening of the doors. These men
talked Munroe, but did not -eem willing
to hazard much on his chances to win.
In the afternoon the totting was 100 to
35 that Jeffries would win, and even money
that the champion would knock out Mun
roe In less than ten rounds.
There was an abundance of Jeffries
money In sight, but few takers were found
In the Munroe camp. They were holding
for a better proposition. Toward evening
tho odds dropped to 10 to 3. Most of tho
bets, however, were small, and In the
downtown poolrooms no large commis
sions were recorded. The great bulk of
the money wagered was on the proposition
of how long Munroe would last. A great
many knowing onee thousht It a good
hazard to place even money that the
champion would not knock out the big
miner within ten rounds.
They figured on Munroe's youth, great
strength, vigor and ambition. Not a few,
too, thought that the Instructions of Kid
McCoy would make the Butte man the
most formidable who ever tackled Jeffrier.
The fact that tho latter was reported to
have tipped the scales nt 125 pounds a few
hours before entering the ring rcado them
think that he would be much slower than
on the occasion when he fought Corbett.
Another elemont which helped along the
spoculatlvo Impulse was a knowledge cf
the rules under which the battle was to
be fought. These permitted the fighters
to rough It and protect themselves at all
times. In other words, the sporting men
realized thatferh'llo the contest would be
under Marquis of Queensberry rules, there
was some resemblance to the London prize
With two of the greatest giants who over
faced each other in the ring under these
conditions, a great fight was looked for.
In all of the other great heavy-weight
battles, notablj; those between Corbett and
Sullivan, Corbett and Fltzslmmona, and
Corbett and Jeffries, hitting In the clinches
was barred and they broke clean at the
order of "the referee. '
Shortly after 7 o'clock the doors to the
big pavilion were opened and the waiting
througs, which had been admirably handled
by the mounted police and a squad of pa
trolmen, poured In at the doors. The gal
leries were lulckly filled and the conserv
atives among the sporting men soon occu
pied most of the high-priced Ecats.
Compared to former championship
events, the house ranked about fifth In
point of size. The high-water mark was
reached when Corbett and Jeffries fought.

The first preliminary was between the
"Saginaw Kid" and Jockey Burns. It
went four rounds and the Saginaw Kid
got the decision.
The second preliminary was between
Billy Means of Ban Francisco and Nelll
Sullivan of Portland.
At 9 o'clock tho pavilion rapidly filled
up and the sales to late comers greatly
augmented the number of spectators, and
It Is estimated the receipts will be larger
than at first announced. There are very

SKETCH AND RECORD

father, the Reverend Alexis C. Jeffries,

home In Los Angeles. Cal. Ills father is
an evangelical preacher and travels
through California preaching on street
The present heavy-weight champion of
the world began his career as a pugilist
July 2, 1836. when he fought Dan I.ong of
San Francisco and scored a knockout In
two rounds.' Several minor battles fol
lowed with success fai-orlng Jeffries. He
then became James J. Corbett's sparring
partner. Within throe years efter taking
the position with Corbett at Carson City
In 1837, Jeffries became the champion or
the world. When Jeffries Joined the Cor
bett camp, tho Tompadour pugilist wai
preparing for his battle with Bob Fltz
slmmona. JEFFRIES'S FIRST JIATCH
Jeffries first iratch with a fighter of
prominenco was with Gus Rublln in San
Francicco on July 17, 1S37. After twenty
rounds of slurglng the referee called the
fight a draw. Four months later Jeffries
fought Joo Choyrjikl a twcnty-i our.d draw
In San Francisco. Early In 1SD3 the young
bollcrmsker knocked out Jco Goddard In
four rounds at Los Angeles, and on March
22 of the same year he scored an outright
victory over Peter Jackson In three rounds
In San Francisco. One month later he put
Pete Evart to sleep In three rounds.
The next day Jeffries was matched to
fight Tom Sharkey. They fought twenty
rounds on March t, 1B33. and after twenty
rounds of rough-and-tumble work. JoffrIf
won the fight. Within two months after
his victory over Sharkey. Jeffries came
East, and met Bob Armstrong, whom he
undertook to stop In ten rounds. He got
tho decision over Armstrong on points,
but broke his left hand on tho colored
lad's head. In con;quence of till.' Injury
he was unable to meet Steve O'Donnoil,
whom he had agreed to fight In the rfajie
ring Immediately after beating Armstrong.
KNOCKED OUT FITZ
IN ELEVEN ROUNDS.
One year later at Coney Island Jeffries
fought Bob Fitzslmmons for the heavy
weight championship of the world, and
surprised tho nuglllstlc world by knocking
out lanky Bob In eleven rounds on June 3.
In November of the same year Jeffries
met Tom 8harkey. and, after a remarka
ble exhibition lasting twenty-five rounds,
the bollermaker was given the decision on
Soon after taking the scalp of the Sail
or. Jeffries accomplished a victory over
James J. Corbett. The former heavy
weight champion made a remarkably good
showing, end everybody thought ho would
last the twenty-five rounds out, and pos
sibly obtain the decision, until tho Cali
fornia giant landed a left poke on the
Jaw, and the cleverest of all heavy-weight
boxers fell, unconscious, to the floor, with
all prospect of regaining tho champion
Since his battle with Corbett. Jeffries
established precedents in the prize ring.
He fought men whom he had defeated
once again, a consideration that no other
champion had shown to a man he had
beaten. The men whom he fought moro
than once were Corbett, Fitzslmmons,
P.uhlin and Sharkey. He defeated them
all. and in each Instance performed the
feat in easier fauhlcn than in the original

They were 'cleaning up" and Eddie
