This ia the Governor's official po on. Hut the r?-al reason ? mpted him to take this a was a telegraphic warning he re : last night from (Oiur.-^nun :in.-t of th?? Houna Poretga Affairs Mr Bennett wired that unies? the OaJBeinOff preventivi the Tries Johnson fight San Fran? lie P.mama fair. Virtually \he same despatch from Mrs. Bennett was ! by William R.

They do not appreciate the ?i.irt^.-r of the city losing the Panama fair. The Oovcrnor's letter to the At? tor ral follow*: ????'I'TIVE OFFICI rani auto, j<m>> 11. 1910. The Hon. ? S ? ?bb, Attorney - eral. San Francisco. ir Sir: I desire call your atten tion to a socalled prizefight to I m the Fourth of July next in ?.n Francisco betwe.-ri One Jim Jeffries and one Jack John nan. M.-tny complaints are received at this office from prominent citizens of the State ?ir?>t?-sting against the ao-called tight and requesting that some action be taken by the proper authorities to stop the same. The District Attorney of San Fran? cisco has infortned me that he does not propose to interfere in the mat? ter. The first session of the I/egisla fir??. held in thia State in the | 0. enacted a law making it a fel oay?for two persons to fight each o'her upon a previous agreement, upon a wager for money or any othet reward. This law has be^n amended from time to time, but never so as to make prizefighting lawful. In 1903 the Legislature anjain ??nded the law relating to priz?? fighting. While the law as amended p.-rmitted "sparring exhibitions" for a limited number of rounds with gloves to be held by a domestic in? corporated club, it did not remove the ban which the laws of the M have always placed upon prizefights, and while a "sparring exhibition" un? der certain conditions and restric? tions Is permissible under this act, a prizefight still remains a felony. Therefore the question urines.' "What is a prizefight and what is a sparring exhibition?" Tbe former is a crime, the latter is lawful. It Is claimed by many that the con teat, soon to take place between Jef fries and' Johneon is to be & prize? fight, aa that term is understood in the law, and therefore a crime under our statutes. If this Is true It should be pre veuted. But If carried out the guilty partine should be punished by law. I believe that you should ta vesti gate the matter and take auch legal stepe as may be proper in your Judg if warranted by the facts in pressing the case to the court for its decision and ask to hare all interr ested parties enjoin.vl pending the hearing Our Bei Barasse Court has never de? finid a pri/.fight and I believe that an opportunity should be given it to do sa. BeaSaa the amendment of exhil 'ichting und? .?G this amendment has fj ised and ? tolera' ?California until today our State is |8 M.? ?a for prlzefisht; g. m: our -: Our ? the right to de? mand that prizefighting shall cease ? ite. and it will if our ent laws are aale illy If our courts follow the direction of ?>f our sister ia ?I-tining a prizefight.

It is the first time he has lost his nerve alnee he began the cam? paign to pull off the battle. He said . ? ? ?

"It Hernia strange that the ? nor should lnt.-rfere at this late hour ?ally after hla many public state? ments that he would not do so. We can't buck Gov. Olllett, and if he is determinivi to stop the mill I will Immediately arrange to stage It in Other parts. Reno and F.ly ????.. and Salt Laa&S City are prepared to han? dle the fight, and can put it on for July 4. 'Manager Woods of the St. Fran eis Hotel has just telephoned thst he will call a meeting of business men ?it the city tomorrow to protest BOT 's !at?'st move. The business men of San Frai will lose a barr.-l of money if the fight must go to other parts. Only 1 sold I,MS tickets to some of the richest BeOS of Canada, who would have spent a great deal of money here." Jack Johnson when seen at his training quarters took the Qsewf nor's decision philosophically. H<* said, with a grin'that showed all bis gold teeth: I am ready to go to any part of the world to defend my title, provid? ing the contest cannot be held here, but I can't understand why Gov. Gil lett srould take such an arbitrary stand so late in the day. Why, no later than two weeks ago he dem-d having any interest whatever in the exhibition beyond the general inter? est which is taken by practically every man. woman and child in the State. I can't believe he has switched around so completely. "Go to Nevada? Sure. I shall go there or any other place that Jeffries - to go. Salt Lake. Australia or Kingdom Come. Though I don't sup? pose either Jeffries or myself would be at our best in a high altitude sfter training at sea level, I am ready to do anything within reason that Glea son and Rickard ask me to do. But I still think that contest will come off at Eighth and Market Streets per hched . Rowardennan. June 15.?When the news broke here that Gov. Gil? lett had ordered the big fight stopped there was consternation. At first no one would believe It, and Jeffries was most obdurate of all. "I. "I can't believe it. I can't believe it," be moaned. "It's almost impossible that the Governor would interfere et thie hour. If he Intended to take action he would have done so before. The Governor has been quoted as saying he had looked into the law and found that the match waa not a riolatios of any" of Its provisions." Upon being assured that the report was authentic and that Gor. Glllett bad ordered the Attorney-General to act. Jeffries suddenly became taci? turn and it was hard to get a word out of him. He Joined Mrs. Jeffries on the porch of the hotel and they quietly dtscuseed the latest turn STBBata h After much per? suasion Jeffries finally said: "If the - will con? tinue training until I hear from ! ard and \fjLer that my actions will be guided by their plans. If they want us to tight . . elsewni're ? will have to. but that will Be >ip to th?? pr<>' After relapsing^ into another spell of silence he resumed : "I < ? how this affair differs from any other fight I have had in ?rnia.
