JACKSON AND JEFFRIES PILLED THE PAVILION UNTIL IT .RAN OVER THREE ROUNDS WERE ENOUGH (To Show That Peter Is a Sure-Enough Has Bean and That Jeffries Is a Coming Champion Associated Press Special Wire SAN FRANCISCO, March 22.-Jlm Jef fries of Los Angeles easily defeated Peter Jackson In the third round tonight at Woodward's pavilion. Jackson did not make much of a showing after the first round. He displayed some ot his old-time cleverness In ducking and jabbing with his left, but could not land hard enough to stop the rushes of his ypunger and stronger antagonist. Jeffries showed considerable Improvment in cleverness, using his hanus with both judgment and precision. The second round was lively until Peter got a hard left swing on the jaw, which sent him down on his back. He arose only to go down again from the same blow, and was saved by the gong sounding time. Jack son came up looking fairly fresh for the third round, but soon received a hard left on the jaw which made him wobble help lessly about the ring. Another blow from Jeffries sent him against the ropes, where he hung, unable to lift his hands. Jef fries magnanimously stepped back, await- In the recovery of his opponent, but as Peter was plainly out, the referee stepped between them and declared Jeffries the winner. THE LOS ANGELES LAD RUSHES JACKSON The appearance of such fistic celebrities as Fitzslmmons and Corbett would scarce ly have brought out a greater crowd than that assembled at Woodward's pavilion to night. It was a full exemplification of the adage, as applied to matters puglllstl". "the bigger the men, the bigger the crowd." Jackson is popular in San Francisco. In fact, he has always been popular with the sporting public of this city since, on May 21, 1891, he fought the memorable battle of sixty-one rounds with Jim Corbett. Ills cleverness, gameness and his sportsman like conduct on that and subsequent occa sions gave him standing with the patrons of flstiana second to none. During all these recent years of idleness and. some say, considerable dissipation. Jackson has lost none of his popularity, and when the big colored boxer announced his deter mination to again enter the arena and contest with the younger men who have come forward in the last two years, his decision was hailed with delight by his admirers. Some feared Jackson could not condition himself to withstand the hard knocks of actual batlle, but his splendid work in practice dispelled all such fears, and Jackson again became a factor In the championship question. The public quickly came to realize that a great contest was to be decided, and tonight they poured Into the big building, packing it from roof to pit. blocking the streets In the vicinity of the building to such an extent that all traffic was sus pended rom 7:30 until 9:30 oclock. Profiting by their experience with the howling, surging mob on the occasion of the Green- Wolcott battle, the police were out in ade quate numbers tonight. A new entrance to the building has been opened to the seats on the lower floor, and around this and the • two doors leading to the galleries the po lice formed a cordon, extending for a block In either direction on Valencia street. In order to keep back the non-ticket holders and the mob of curiosity-seekers and hang ers-on, many of whom were seeking, through every conceivable excuse, to gain admittance. All seats were sold by 8 oclock, and those who failed to provide MARCUS A. HANNA themselves with the pasteboards earlier were confronted with closed doors when they sought to purchase them. It Is es timated that 52,000 people were outside the building during the progress of the fight. Inside the big pavilion, the largest at present available In the city, men were packed like sardines. Every seat was occupied, while the aisles were filled, and a human walnscoatlng skirted the walls of the entire building. Scarcely less than 9000 men were within the walls when time was called. At 9 o'clock Jeffries came into the ring, seconded by Billy Delaney, DeWltt Van court and Spider Keliy. Jeffries chose the northwest corner of the ring. He was lustily cheered. The house went wild when at 9:03 Jack son stepped Into the ring, followed by Patay Corrigan, Henry White and Young Mitchell. At 9:09 Referee McDonald called the men to the center of the ring and Instructed them. THE FIGHT BY ROUNDS Round I—At 9:10 p. m. the gong sounded, and the men came up quickly. Jackson was aggressive, feeling of Jeffries. Jef fries led with left, but fell short. Jeffries rushed, and led with left, but Peter duck ed.

Peter landed right on body, left on face and right over heart In rapid suc cession. Jackson jabbed Jeffries hard in face. Jeffries put hard left on the body. Jackson put two good right blows on body as the round ended. Round 2— Jeffries missed a giant swing for the body, and was jabbed in the face with left. Jeffries put good left on head and clinched. Peter came in close, and put In short right arm blow over heart, and Jeffries clinched. Jackson jabbed Jef fries hard on mouth with left, drawing a little blood. Jeffries rushed, but Peter cleverly got under his swing. Jeffries swung left on jaw, knocking Jackson down. Jackson got up and went down again from a left swing just as the gong sounded. Round 3—Peter came up pretty fresh. Jeffries landed left lightly on head. Jef fries landed repeatedly on. Jaw, an 3 Peter went groggy; he got Peter against thu ropes and swung left on Jaw. Peter fell against the ropes, and the referee stopped ihe right and gave the decision to Jef fries. A PRELIMINARY "Kid" Barker of Boston finished Henry- Lewis of San Francisco in half a round. Lewis went down from every blow, and the crowd yelled "fake." The Herald Bulletins The Herald's bulletin service, giving re ports round by round of the Jackson-Jef fries tight, attracted a great deal of atten tion last night, several hundred people waiting until at 9:23 p. m. the stereoptlcon flashed the news upon the screen that three minutes previously the Los Angeles lad had added another scalp to his belt. The crowd filled the street and lined th 6 sidewalk on the other side of Broadway. The Darktown folk were out in force, loyal to the last to Mr. Peter Jackson. When Jeffries picture was thrown on the screen with the Inscription, "Our Jim. The Com ing Champion." the crowd cheered lustily, but the final result was not received with extraordinary enthusiasm, as Jim's easy victory hadi been confidently expected.

W. corser frawklhi I I HARRIS • fBANK, Proprleteri 1 PLANS LAID DOWN (Continued from Pag* One.) has mapped out after mature considera tion. At the cabinet meeting today tt was de cided not to make the destruction of the Maine a bone of contention, but to take the broad and general ground that humanity demands an Immediate stoppage ot the war In Cuba and the Immediate relief of starving Cubans. It was conceded that the conditions In Cuba Justified such Inter ference, and the necessity for promptitude was apparent, not only because ot the ten* per of congress, which ls tired of delay, but because the attitude of Spain, as reflected by recent correspondence between the two countries, Is haughty and unyielding to the point of insolence. There seems to be no doubt that the Sa gasta ministry has decided on a struggle for the retention of Cuba and for resist ance to any demands the United States may make. The question of declaring Cuba Independ ent was discussed by the cabinet In all Its phases and dismissed as a course likely to lead to endless delay, and asTfaving the vital defect of not providing for the ces sion of the barbarities and miseries pre vailing In that famine-wrung Island. The president and his advisers saw at once that If the settlement of responsi bility for the Maine disaster was to be held In abeyance for a short time after the court's report had been sent to con gress tt would be necessary to hold con gress in check while waiting for an Inter vention message, soon to follow. This Is an Important consideration, and Democratic assistance was deemed abso lutely essential to the success of tbe pro* gram. Accordingly Senators Gray of Dela ware, Gorman ot Maryland and Morgan of Alabama were Invited to the White House for a conference with McKinley. They called separately this a/ternoon, and each had a long talk with the chief executive. While these senators absolutely refused to discuss the purpose of their visit or Its result, there Is no doubt that the president outlined his policy with considerable de tail. There Is every reason to believe that his course, as explained, received the warmest commendation from the Demo cratic leaders, who promised their support and Influence toward making the presi dent's program a success.
