want to serve notice on the gentle
men that they yon't have any more
show of winning than a snow ball In—

In Minot and if tney all play at once,
they couldn't beat the big invincibles.

International figure.
Johnson's wife was white, due to the

originally Hattle Smith and she was
born near Biloxi, in Mississippi, twen

white woman, but admits a strain of
colored blood. She married Johnson

ORIF DISCOVERS
THE (PIT BALL
Atlanta, Ga.. April 5.—Clark Griffith
has discovered a new style of delivery
that wll be just as much of a puzzler
as the spitbaJi The new-fangled de
livery has been christened the "quoit
ball."
Griffith made his first demonstra
tion with the "quoit ball" with Charley
Sturr doing the receiving. The fa
mous master of the slow ball has given
this new delivery a lot of study, and
as it is something absolutely new, It
should prove a sensation.
The quoit ball is sti.rted below the
hip. The pitcher takes a olng swing,
with the back of his hand towards the
batsman. He throws the ball very
much like a man playing quoits tosses
the quoit, but of course, he puts a
twist on It, for the purpose of fooling
the battier. As the ball leaves his hand,
Griff puts a bunch of reverse English
on it, and the sphere sails up to-the
plate very much like a hoop, with the
reverse on It, rolls on the floor.
"It was the funniest kind of a ball
I ever caught," said Sturr, after the
demonstration.

San Francisco, Cal., April 5.—Here
Is another Jeffries tip. and considering
the wealth and importance of the man
who gives it out, it is one that we
must sit up and take notice of, even if
it proves as unstable as foryier tips of
a like character.
It will be remembered that C. D.
Hlllman, the Seattle millionaire, sent
out word from Santa Barbara some
little time ago that he was ready to
give 3100,000 or more for a Jeffries
Johnson fight. At the time Mr. Hill
man said his bid was made "under
certain conditions and Jeffries, who
was appearing at the time at the Wig
wam theatre in this city, showed a
streak of humor by replying 'I'll ac
cept that under certain conditions.'"
Mr. Hillman's offer was lost sight of
for the time being, but now it crops up
again. Hlllman was In Oakland last
night and a few minutes before he left
for his home city, he said that he had
raised his offer for a Jeffries-Johnson

New Tork City, April 5 —If the

his way New York city will have the
most beautiful and remarkable drive
In America and there wil be but few
in Europe to compare with it. At the
present time Mr. Ahearn and his pro

resolution passed in June, 1906. which
authorized the extension of the River
side drive, but owing to the lack of
funds, this has been delayed until last
week, when he opened the project for
bids. There was a storm of disapprov

said the Seattle milllonairs mac. "My
partner. Jack Williams of Los Ange

"I think the mat sr is clinched now
and that the sporting world will see

July or early In September.
"Our plan is that the men fight with
four-ounce gloves to a ftttish. The fight
will be pulled off either in Hlllman
City or Boston Harbor, both of which
are near Seattle. With the Immense
throngs that will be in attendance at
the Alaska-Yukon exposition, we can
get together the greatest crowd in the
history of pugilism. We want the flght

"Though we have not had anything

a certainty that he will meet Jeffries
with that amount of money In sight."
Hlllman is said to be one of the

of land all around. He ls^ also a big
