Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 7.—That Jafes J. Jeffries entered the ring with Jack Johnson at Reno July 4th, a drugged man, and not a man suffer ing from nervous collapse, is the sub stance of a signed article by Barney Oldfield, which will be published here tomorrow and which has been author ized by the defeated champion, Jef fries, however, will not allow details concerning the alleged drugging to be published at this time, Oldfield said. According to Oldfield, Jeffries took him into his confidence during a re cent hunting trip in the Sierras. Oldfield's statement is in part as follows: Mental or nervous collapse, Jeffries explained, would not have affected him .physically for weeks after the fight. '•Poison which was given him affected Sis stomach afterward and for a month vhe could hardly retain solid food. Hie favorite dishes did not possess any charm of taste and his whole body seemed as if stricken with rheuma tism.

AND THE CANADIANS Findings Will Not be Made Public Until After Meeting TREATY NOT EXPECTED TO BE ENERAL RECIPROCITY AGREE MENT AT THE PRESENT TIME —NUMBER OF ARTICLES WILL BE .ADMITTED TO FREE LIST—Fl RST MEETING HELD IN OFFICES OF THE STATE DEPARTMENT. (By Associated Press.) Washington, D. C, Jan. 7.—A de termined effort to lay the foundation for a reciprocity treaty between the United States and Canada was initia ted today when Secretary Knox wel comed at the state department rep resentatives of the Canadian govern ment. Knox explained to the Ca nadian envoys the powers conferred upon representatives of the depart ment of state and the purposes of the United States government in the ne gotiations. There were six members of the conference assembled in the office of the state department as signed to negotiators, Chandler P. Anderson, Charles M. Pepper, and John B. Osborne, for the United States, and W. S. Fielding, minister of finance, and William Patterson, minister of customs for Canada and Secretary Knox. Indications are that the negotiations will consume at least a week's tife. There is an enormous quantity of de tail to be considered and tariff sched ules of both countries will be sub jected to careful study in various lines likely to be affected by any changes in customs duties. The com missioners, it is believed, will try to cover this mass of detail within one week.' There is urgent need of haste if anything is to be accomplished by the present congress. But in the light of what has gone before at Ottawa and public declara tions of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Ca nadian premier, it may even now be predicated that any treaty resulting from present negotiations will not be what may be called a general recipro city treaty. The most that can be expected at this stage It commercial relations between the United States and Canada is a convention dealing with a certain limited number of ar ticles. It probably will include the addition of a few raw products to free lists, reductions of duty on American manufactured articles not now largely made in Canada and reduced duties on some Canadian agricultural staples largely .used in the United States. Even this much will be regarded by the state department as a satisfactory opening wedge for the extension of ideas of reciprocity in supplementary con mentions to be drawn in the fu ture. The first conference lasted about two hours and adjournment was then taken until next Monday afternoon. Beyond mere announcement that the conference had met to renew nego tiations "initiated by the president some months ago" the only formal statement to be had was the follow ing: "It was decided that no statements would be given until the results of the negotiations should become defin ite. Thereupon an authoritative statement will beV made- jointly by representatives of!both governments and will be Issued through the de partment of state."

He is firm in the belief that details will all come out within a year or so. "Jeff pledged me to secrecy about the details of treachery and what he had bbeen able to learn. He told MO I was the only man who kn^w as much as he told me. I profised tc aid him in getting some informa tion he cannot get himself. 4 Jeffries' story to me absolved mem bers r.f his training camp from any blurt That much I must say in justice to the men who helped hm with all their hearts.

It was announced today that the selection of a committee on com mittees by the next ways and means committee is now assured, there be ing little opposition left to that pro cedure. Representative Fitzgerald of New York is among the democrats holding out for the vesting of such selection in the speaker as at present, but the giving of that power to the incoming ways and means committee will be in accord with the views of Representative Champ Clark of Mis souri, probably the next speaker, Rep resentative Underwood of Alabama, probably next chairman of the ways and means committee Representative Henry of Texas, conspicuously men tioned in connection with the chair manship of the committee on rules, and other democratic leaders.

Ex traordinary precautions have beoji taken by the authorities to guard the prisoners and to prevent any attempt at their release. They have been in close confinement for more than three years. Hundreds of their friends and relatives gathered at the station here today and when the train arrived from Naples there was a riot. It was known! that a rescue would be attempted and I orders had been issued to the police and carabineers to put down any such, attempt by whatever force was neces sary.

The mob broke into cries, arrieks and execrations at the sight of the prisoners. Intense excitement reigned and the surging mass of peo ple threatened an attack upon the po lice and carabineers. The prisoners shook their manacled fists and raised their voices almost as loudly- as their protesting friends and relatives. The men were marched to prison, sur rounded by heavy guards. It is be lieved that evidence will appear which will throw light upon the murder of Detective Petrosino at Palermo in March, 1909, whither he was sent by the New York police department to secure information on Italian crimi nals.
