JAMES J. JEFFRIES
TO REFEREE FIGHT
CHAMPION WILL DECIDE THE
CHOSEN BY FLIPPING COIN
After Three Days' Session to Name a
Referee, Willie Brltt and Nolan
j, Un i Primitive
By Associated Press.
'BAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 28.— James
J.; Jeffries . has been decided upon to
referee the Brltt-Nelson fight at Colma
September .'9. Nelson's manager stood
■ out-'for Oeorge Slier and 'Brltt's
, brother insisted upon Jeffries. Finally
a coin was tossed and Brltt won. Jef
fries ' has not been heard from on the
,When 'called up on the telephone
last night Jeffries stated that he would
act as^chief Justice of the conflict if
there, was money enough In It for him.
; When i asked' how much he demanded
he said "that would be telling.",
./"I haven't been notified that I have
bnen ■ chosen to act as referee," said
Jeffries, "but I will probably take the
place -If! there is enough in itito make
it .worth :my while.
y; .The big . man . simply laughed at . the
assertions made by Nolan that, he was
tioo '.Inexperienced as a referee to be
acceptable. , Nolan had stated at the
meeting- Saturday that Jeffries had not
had enough experience and added that
"the best actor. does not always make
the best critic." . . ' ' . - :
'.'The controversy over a referee which
resulted in the tossing of a coin to de
cide the important question had lasted
since Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock
and the ' management of the Colma
Athletic club had about come to the
"conclusion that it would have to name
the referee and accept the $2500 forfeit
money that each side put up to guar
antee the choice of a referee two weeks
before the night of the fight. '■ .
jiiyHVVanted Fight, Not Money
■'..The forfeit money was in the hands
of the stakeholder and when after an
all day's session between Wlllus Britt
and Billy Nolan that did not end until
iptdnlght ; and no referee had been
chosen, '.'■ Coftorth ■ gently hinted that
there' was a total of $5000 coming 1 to him
if the referee ' was not chosen by . the
time the two hands of the clock came
: together. But Cofforth didn't want
that' $5000. . He was looking for bigger
"game and feared that if he was com
ipelled •, to name * the referee the fight
Kilght not be held, so he consented to
waive the forfeit privileges .until 7:30
f o'clock Sunday night if the two mah
! agers !\ could come together by that
time.'. .' •'-'' ■. '■' . "
:'; Another cession was held Sunday and
tvhen the time limit rolled around Wil
t lus Britt and Nolan were still' at log
gerheads '• with no '; probability of a de
cision.'". ; Almost" in despair Cofforth
granted another stay of time until 7:30
o'clock ; last night and It was after
that time when the decision was made
by flipping the coin. •

IS CAPTAIN FRANK DILLON ,:
AFFLICTED WITH PARESIS?
Silly Statement Made That He Refuses
to Allow Team to Recognize
It Is alleged that Capt. Prank Dillon
of the Los Angeles club has mighty
little use for Umpire J. Ira Davis. This
information comes from . the . north,
where, it is said, patrons of the game
there have several times witnessed evi
dence of ' Dillon's contempt -forA the
bumptious umpire. Their dislike for
each other took on such proportions, it
Is stated, that at one time they were
close to airing their differences before a
conference of the powers, but tho mat
ter was dropped.
The doughty captain's dislike for the
umpire seems to have grown, however,
for word comes from Portland , that
Dillon has issued a ukase to his team
to the . effect that each member Is
warned | not . to speak or recognize In
any way Umpire Davis In public places,
on the street or anywhere else under
penalty of a $10 fine.
Fans In this city do not believe that
Dillon has Issued any such apparently
absurd decree as this and will not be
lieve It until he says so himself. If
such an order has gone forth there will
probably be found a very good reason
for It, for Dillon's good sense has never

- COAST. LEAGUE
MAY PLAY AT . BAKERSFIELD
Failure of Oakland Pane to Support
the Team May Result In ■
Split Series— Goodman
In spite of the fact that Oakland
was granted a franchise at the annual
meeting of the Pacific Coast .league at
Portland last week, there have been
disquieting rumors to the effect that
the franchise would be revoked. In
vestigation has proved that these
rumors were not, founded on fact and
It Is certain that Oakland will play
In the league next year as it has in
the past, but it Is also ' certain that
some of the games of the fall series
will be played at Bakersfleld or
Fresno, or some other place. "
There are two reasons for this.' One
is that the Oakland fans have not pat
ronized the games as they should have
done to make the series there a. suc
cess from the box office point of view,
and the other Is a kind of sop thrown
to Bakersfield to assuage her disap
pointment at not receiving a fran
chise from the league. Before the
meeting of the baseball magnates at
Portland, it was believed that Ta
coma would be dropped from the
league and Bakersfleld taken up, but
a suggestion of this nature brought
the Tacoma business men to a realiza
tion of what they were about to lose
and they stepped gallantly to the
front with every promise of support
If Tacoma be allowed to continue in
the league. The Oakland proposition
Is now entirely up to . the fans and
the way they rally to the support of.
the team next season will determine
whether or not the full series of games
will be played there. j»
In an Interview Saturday, Theodore
Goodman, treasurer of the league,
"I have had no word ■ from Henry
Harris 'since' the meeting' adjourned,
but! I know there is no truth ' in the
story sent out from Portland /that
Oakland would lose its franchise. To
have continuous ball' at Rrecreatlon
park the Oakland team is a necessity.
Oakland does not' draw as well as
San Francisco ( when It, ls at home,, but
It does fairly.' well. \. I' hear talk about
Bakersfleld "getting ,',' the' franchise.
What that means I think is that spring
and fall series, when all the northern
clubs are here, are to be played at
Bakersfield ;or Fresno. Last spring
they were played at Oakland and the
year before at Fresno."
Goodman said there was no question
but that Morley would be at the head
of the Los Angeles club another year.
Manager Harris took his proxy north,
but the franchise could not be awarded
as Morley was not on hand to ask for
it. It will be granted jin due time.
At Portland the following resolution
was adopted: . ■
"Resolved, That this league renew Its
three-year agreement with Rrecreatlon
Park association with the understand
ing that the park be closed four weeks
In the summer in order ' to allow the
northern clubs more games at home."
The rule forbidding a club to sell
more than one player, which was
passed at the meeting, was directed
at Tacoma, which was planning to
dispose of several players." It ex
pected jto sell Nordyke and possibly
Sheehan. Now these players will be
at the mercy of the drafters.
