T.-Jamos J. Jef fries, former world's champion heuvy w eight, will be asked to referee the tcn ( 'round battle between Jess Wlllard and Frank Moran, which Is scheduled to be held "somewhere" In this city on March IT. Tex Rickard, who Is promoting tho uffnlr, will offer Jeff the job. Itlckard and Jeffries are great friends. They have kept up a correspondence ever slnco the fight between Jeffries and Jack Johnson, which was promoted and icferecd by itlckard. In casf Jeffries accepts Tcx'a offer, application will bo made to tho State athletic coirmilsalon fbr a referee's license for Jeffries. Whether tho com mission will grant .this license Is prob lemailrtil, but If precedent Is followed there may be some difficulties placed In the way of .Tcff'B appointment. However. thH will rest entirely- with the commission, which has discretion ary powers in the matter. I think that Jeffries as referee will help tho match along," declared Rick ard at tho Waldorf-Astoria, where he is staying. "I Intend to Invito Jeffries to see the bout as my guost, anyway. M YORK HP 1 "Xhcr.c .appears t'o be great Interest 1 . liTine c&nlnVcontcflt." added Rick ard. "Already I have received, oraera for fifty seats from men In Chicago, and I 'have an order for two tickets fiom a. man In Little Rock, Ark. In no case does any one ask what the price will be. but all want to know uhcio they can mall checks. This shows that the price will not Tie the most Important consideration with th fans. "Dave Lewlnsohn Informs mo that he has already made arrangements for h special train to carry fans .from Chicago, and adds that he may re quire two or even three specials, to tay nothing of those who will come In the regular way from the Wlnly City. "1 see that some of the newspapers have alluded to tho fight as a gamble and to mo as a gambler," continued Rickard. "This Is not a gamble and I m not a gambler. It is strictly a business proposition. And those who come to see it will not be paying ex orbitant prices. When one goes to see Gaby Deslys or some opera singer lie pays anywhere from $2 to $C. Say Gaby gets $2,000 a week. Well, I'm paying many times that amount for my show, and the prices In compari son will bo extremely low. I haven't made up my mind Just where I'll hold tho fight, but -one thing Is certain it will not be In the open. I'm not gambler enough to gamble on the weather. "I expect Tom Jones here Tuesday and then I'll give out all the details of tho match. Until then I will be unable to do ho." A report from Los Angeles says that Jeffries has been 111 for three weeks and Is just convalescing, lie will not be out for two weeks. However, the WIMard-Moran fight Is more than five works off, anil Jeff would have plonty of time to get Into condition to refetec tne battle.

THE beachcomber was shuffling along the sands, like some fur tively uncouth night animal. He was a forlorn spectacle un shaven, 111 clad. For a week now ho hod dwelt In a tumble-down shack at the far end of Surfton beach a- two room hovel, deserted long ago by the coast guards and lit only for outcasts. There could bo no doubt that the beachcomber was an outcast. He spent his days hidden In the shack. Only aft er dark did he venture forth In search of food or firewood. Tho few people who had seen hlmtm these night prowls thought him a mere tramp, and nick named him "Mike." This evening Mike was scouring tho shore for driftwood. Ho had gathered an armful of It and was crossing the beach toward the base of the cliff, where lay a bit of wreckage that the mobnlljiht had just revealed to him. He had nearly reached the cliff base when a blaok cloud momentarily blot ted out the moon, making the beach suddenly dark. Mike looked up Impa tiently to learn the cause of the dark ness. Even as he looked, the cloud passed on. and the moonlight burst forth, as vividly elear as before. But before he could lower his eyes and continue his search for the elusive bit of driftwood. Mike's gaze was caught and gripped by something that swayed and reeled ec centrically on the verge of tho cliff, far above him. He looked more closolv. There, sil houetted against the brightness of the midnight skv, he could make out two close-locked bodies, fighting for very life on the cliff edge battling as wild beasts battle so maddened by the blood lust as to be heedless of their peril. A mis step on that perilous vergo must send one or both of the combatants crushing over tne brink. Mike stared upward, spellbound. Then he shouted. Tho night wind car ried away his cry of warning. Gal vanized Into feverish activity, he cast aside his carefully boarded armful of wood ana ran to the base of the cliff. Tho lower part of the cliff was bowlder strewn and honeycombed with caverns and holes. Above these was n tortuous path, up along the sheer edge of the precipice a oath that a light and active man might possibly climb. Forgetful of his own safety. Mike be gan to swarm un this steep trail, to ward the aumlt. No longer could he see the fighters. But. as he neared the crest he could hear their hoarse breath ing, the stamping and scuffling of their reet. tne naiistorm or pehbles that thev dislodged and sent rattling down the siue or me cJirr. Max Lamar was yielding. Inch by Inch, to tho fearful pressure of his foe. With every ounce of his 240 pounds, and with every atom of his mighty strength. "Smiling Sam" Eagan was striving to drag Lamar to the cliff brink and hurl him over. Max realized his enemy's Intent, and fought like a wildcat to overcome the terrible handicap of weight He writhed and struggled In vain to stay that Irresistible pressure. Nearer and nearer to the verge his antagonist tugged him. All wrestling tricks were futile against tho lowbullt and com pact mountain of muscular weight. Other tactics were necessary and must be put to use. right quickly If Lainar were to escape with his life. The crime specialist wrenchod one arm free and struck. His lett fist bat tered thuddlnglv against the sweat ing flesh of Eagan's upturned face. His blows were delivered with all tho skill of a trained boxer. But his arm was too cramped and the distance too short for him to deliver them with anything like full force. Eagan shifted his hold, so as to pinion tho flercely driven left arm. and twisted his broad face to one side to evade the shower of blows. The maneuver enabled Max to tear freo his right arm. Bracing himself, he threw every atom of hla weight and has waning strength into a short-arm uppercut His fist caught Sam at the point of the jaw. Eagan's mighty arms relaxed their hold under the Impaot of the blow. His head jerked back. A quiver ran through his mountainous bodv. Before he could brace himself, Lamar struck again. Eagan reeled backward, dizzy, and all but helpless. With boxer's Intuition, Max knew a third blow would end tho flght He braced his feet to de liver It. throwing his right foot several Inches behind the left The right foot did not touch ground. Instead, It swung out Into space. For Lamar was on the very edge of the precipice. Understanding his peril, he Hung himself forward. The movement caused a eavc-ln of tho crumbling verge, beneath his right foot. He threw out his arms to save himself. But It was too late to recover his bal ance. Over the edge his body" crashed. Over, the edge and out of sight his hands clawing vainly at the precipice side for some obstacle to break or check bis fall.

From below ho hod seen two men battling hero. Yet, when Mo had arrived at the crest only ono man had been visible. And that one man was gone. Au Mlko still blinked uncertainly about him, ho heard a, muffled cry that seemed to como from the ground be neath his feet. Ho jumped to ono side, lh superstitious dread.

Lying at full length, he peered down over the edge of tho precipice. Six feet below him, and hanging over a sheer three-hundred foot drop, clung n man a mail who hnil broken his fall by seizing an outcropping Jut of stono. To the stono tho unfortunato Lamar was clinging with both hands. His body swung helpless below It. His grip on the stone was already fatting. Once or twice. It seemed gone. But with cat. like agility he woutd ever renew his pre carious noid. "He can't hang on there more than a few seconds longer," muttered tho beachcomber, noting the Increasing weakness of the suspended body.

At tho voice, Lamar tightened his slip ping grasp and looked upward. Above he saw the unshaven face of tho tramp, glaring, wild-eyed down at him. Tho beachcomber was stretching one arm downward. But ho could not reach Lamar by nearly a yard. Can you hang on while I run for a rope and someone to help me pull you up?" he called. Lamar did not answer. He had no strength to squander on words. He needed every fraction of his ebbing power to maintain his slippery hold for even a minute longer. Tho beachcom ber understood. And he wasted no time.
