San Francisco, Nov. 16. —In one ol the most unsatisfactory prize fights ever witnessed in this country James J. Jeffries proved the victor last night over Gus Ruhlin, the Akron giant. In the fifth round of what was to have been a twenty-round struggle Ruhlin surrendered to the amazement and dis gust of the assembled thousands. No one was more surprised at the out come than Jeffries himself who assert ed that while he had delivered one teliing blow in the second round he did not expect to win his victory so easily. Ruhlin's sole explanation of the outcome of the fight is that he re ceived a chance blow which utterly disabled him and that Jeffries persist ed in fighting him low Whle Ruhlin will make no absolute charge of Jeff ries having committed a foul, he inti mates that he was unfairly handled and injured as a result. Ruhlin re ceived the support of his seconds in this stand, who say his was a hopeless case after the second round. When seen in his dressing room after the fight Jeffries said: “I was certainly surprised at my easy victory and Ruhlin’s amazing defeat. While !• is true he did not punch me hard enough during the five rounds to cause me any alarm, I believed him strong and eautlius up to the moment of his collapse and was surprised when he quit. I certainly had no trouble in whipping him and had the fight gone on the result must have been the same. Ruhlin was inaccurate and in poor wind and I cannot say he even had the courage and force I expected to encounter in him. Ruhlin took a stiff punch in the stomach in the fourth round which I presume gave him trouble. Nevertheless 1 expected him to lose harder than he did. Ruh lin can doubtless best explain his own position, and as for myself. I am will ing to meet Sharkey next month and thereafter defend as best I can the title I hold.” When Ruhlin went to his dressing room, he was followed by a very de pressed retinue. The defeated man complained of no pain and moved about without assistance. He stated: “I believed from the tap of the gong I would win but as the fight progress ed 1 was beaten down until I received a blow on the stomach which I must say was very low. It may not have been a foul, but no living man could have survived it. Jeffries departed from the written rules and from the common regulations of boxing when he threw himself upon me and wrest led rather than sparred. I do believe had I not received the stomach punch which ended me in the fifth round I would have worn down Jeffries in a few rounds later and beaten him as a matter of endurance. I am ready to figfct him again and believe in time I will have an opportunity of showing I can defeat him. That is all I can say.” Sport at Milwaukee. Milwaukee. Nov. 16.—Jack O’Keefe and Kid Herman of Chicago fought six rounds to a draw last night. Joe Percente of Kenosha got the decision over "Battling” Nelson of Chicago aft. r six rounds.
