JEFFRIES ONLY REAL CHAMPION CORBETT AND FITZ HAD NO JUST CLAIM Big Callfornian Holds Title Supreme at a Result of Victories Over Every Oppo nent The question Of who really wfis Cham plon of the world is more or lan imig and cciiiipli. ited While Jim Corbett, Bob Fltsslmmon? and others were 1 red itoii with being holders of the world'i title, Jim Jeffries, up t<> the time of his retirement, was the first and only sl mon-pure world's champion since the Queensberrj code has been In vogue. To be a world's champion 11 l">xrr must win the titles of the three coun tries that constitute the pugilistic world — America, England and Australia. This Jeffries did, and he '<•- the only man in the world who has done sn. When Jeffries refereed the Hart-Root fight in Nevada he publicly announced his retirement and Statcufl he would turn over the- championship to the winner. Hart won, and when he en deavored to protect it iißalnst Tommy Burns in California he wns beaten. Hence Burns' justifiable claim to the championship. To go deeply into the mntter of how Jeffries acquired the world's title the matter stands as follows: John L. Sul livan was the acknowledged and undis puted champion of America, Tom Loea held the Australian belt and Jem Smith was recognized as champion of England by the British boxing experts. Peter Jackson deflated Lees and won the belt and title of Australia. Shortly after the big black came to this coun try and resumed the remarkable career of going fifteen years without tasting defeat. It wasn't long after this until a new fhampion sprang up in Australia —Paddy Slavin, known to boxing fame as the "Sydney Cornstock." He defeated about everybody in Aus tralia, and during Jackson's absence claimed the championship of that coun try, a claim that was allowed by some. Slavin then went to England and met Jem Smith for the championship of England, and, as many claimed at the time, the championship of Australia. This, in view of the fact tint Jackson ■was the bona fide champion of the lat ter country. The Slavin-Smith battle ended in a draw. Jackson hastened to England and defeated both Smith and Slavin, emphasizing his hold on the Australian title and incidentally winning the championship of England. He held these two titles for years. The mighty John L. was still the un disputed champion of America. Then came tho memorable fiKht at New Or leans, when the stripling With the pompadour hair overthrew the nation's idol, and history repeated Itself with sadness, and the old cry of "The king Is dead; long live the king," was heard. All this time Jackson had remained the technical monarch of England and Australia. But one day he allowed himself to be pitted against a young California giant named Jeffries. "When the new star wns declared a winner in the third round, the world wondered. It demanded a battle between Jeffries and Fitzsimmons. The battle was ar ranged and the man who had beaten the champion of Australia and England added the championship of America to his list. That is the whole story in a nutshell, and can easily be verified by reading up a little on the history of the Queens berry realm. B ERRY WILL GIVE A WAY PISSES PARTICIPANTS IN PARADE TO BE GUESTS Los Angeles Baseball Season Opens Tomorrow — Mayor Harper, Jim Jeffries and Raffles Will Be at the Park Henry Berr^'is quite the busiest man in town just now and the baseball sea son which opens tomorrow, will cer tainly be characteristic of the thor ough manner in which Heinrieh is ac customed to doing things. None of the usual details will be overlooked even unto the presence of Jim Jeffries. When Junes fust made his appearance as sponsor of baseball and prepared to toss over the starter, fans in the bleachers held their breath and reflected proudly as to how they might tell their grandchildren of the time when Jimmy de Jeff appeared on the diamond. Jim, however, has been slated for the Job so often since then that it would not be natural if he did not show up to delight the initial gathering. Mayor Harper may possibly take a turn on the slab in which event Jeffries will face his honor with the stick, while Chief Kern of the police department will 'lon the mask. Mr. Raffles bf Th< Herald has also made known his intention of being present and the mysterious gentleman will surely be led :i merry chase once he acts foot in the park.

JOE THOMAS REGARDED AS GREAT BALL PLAYER Whllo It mlßht come n* ft surprise to the baseball fan*, It probably Is true that when Joe Thomas, the welter weight champion of tho world, turned professional boxer, the diamond lost a star. This premier boxer was one of the most promising youngsters ever turned out In the west, and it was only a scratch that he took up the glove lnstead of the mask. 1 1 has been only three years since Thomas turned professional, and up to that time everybody who knew him thought he would follow the diamond for a livelihood. Both Frank Chance and Joe Nealon wanted Thomas to turn professional ball tosser, and, while he Is very much engrossed with the boxing game at present, the advice might take seed at some future date. When that baseball fan Jim Corbett wns 111 Frisco training for the jpfTriPs go. he and Thomas pi every d&y, nnd he s;iid nt the time thai If Thomas wanted to turn "pro." he was sure hs could secura ■> berth for him in one of the leagues In L A. HIGH SCORES SIGNAL VICTORY DEFEATS THE CRACK OAKLAND TRACK TEAM Munn Gives a Wonderful Exhibition and Tallies Thirty Points by His Perform. ance Oakland high school would have been nothing loss than slaughtered in the track meet at Bovard field yesterday had it not been for the services of Munn, who scored thirty of the fifty five points tallied by his team. Final score stood, Los Angeles high, 58; Oak land high. 55. Munn was by far the best all round athlete on the field. In the 100-yard dash, the hammer throw, the shot put, broad apd high jumps, he took llrst, winning in every contest he entered ex cept the relay. He made a hard try to break the world's record of 52-7 nt putting the shot, but could only reach 50-11. Possibly the finest display of pluck shown on the field was that exhibited by Ted Phelps of Los Angeles high at the pole vault. Phelps had a bad fall early in the meet, and limped painfully. His misfortune appeared to rile him and when the score was announced he and Smith of Oakland were declared tied for second. This didn't suit Ted, and hobbling as best he could, he kept vaulting till he had broken the tie. Phelps made a hard try to beat Munn's record of 10-9, plucklly vault ing again and again. In this, however, he wag unsuccessful. The relay proved the most exciting event of the day. The count was 55-ri3, in Oakland's favor, with the relay counting live points. The affair was a half mile run in 2:20 heats. The high school boys won by almost twenty-live feet. The Oak land lads protested that Bristol had cut in on Munn's position before he was six In front of him, but was denied by the judges.

After the Giants had forfeited, nil unofficial game -was played which re suited In a 7-0 whitewash favoring the Athletics. McOraw has apparently gone on the warpath again. He was greatly encouraged by the appearance of Mike Donlln, who already has begun to clout the ball with great regularity, Shay and Corcoran, however, are not altogether pleasing to McOraw and he ls anxious concerning second base.

MAJOR LEAGUERS ARE HOPEFUL SEVERAL CLAIMING SEASON CHAMPIONSHIPS Comiskey Confident That the Chicago White Sox Will Again Win Baseball Laurels of the Country With the Angel baseball tram pre paring to start on Its race for the pen nt Saturday, diamond Interest In genera] is arising and doings of the blp lonsues will soon become almost of national Importance. Following are a few pre-season ver sions of various managers: Comiskey Confident Pew teams win two world's cham pionships in succession, but that is the record the White Sox are going after. We had a hard battle to land at the top last year, but the prize was worth the effort, and wo will be right back In the thick of the fight this year, too, v c start out on the training trip with all our players in good health, and, barring accidents, there Is every reason to believe that the champions will give a good account of themselves In the long campaign to retain their title. We are fortified against accidents as well as It Is possible to protect the vital points of a team. Viewed from every angle, I think our chances of landing another pennant are strong. We ex pect some fierce competition the com ing season and will be prepared for it." Stands by Chance "I like the outlook for the Chicago National League baseball club for 1907 " says Charles W. Murphy. "With the inherent mechanical strength of the members of the team, and the success of our organization last season in win ning 116 games, thus breaking the rec ord of the world, our men should pull together in 1907 for victory with re newed confidence and redoubled energy at all times. Frank Chance is the world's greatest player and will prove it by winning the world's championship. I predict right now that the Cubs will be world's champions next fall." Griffith Cheerful "My pitching staff Is shaping up well now," says Clark Griffith, "and I don't think we will miss Chesbro, though I would like to have him with us. We have a fine bunch of youngsters. Orth is the only veteran on the staff unless I call myself a regular. I think the team will hit well. AYe were shot to pieces nearly all last season, and In my opinion "with our share of baseball luck we will land the pennant. I am willing to stand pat with the team and I am willing to stand the consequences if we don't land." "Muggsy" Optimistic "Perhaps we will not win the cham pionship in 1907," says John McGraw. "Whether we do or don't, I believe that I have the material for a championship nine, and if the players take the field, as I hope they will In the middle of April, I expect that wo shall not only be able to beat six other clubs in the league, but that we will trim the Chicagos and get the third National league pennant that we hoped to cap ture last summer. I believe that we have the strength to do this. I can't go further than that. If I am mis taken, I shall have to pay the cost of the blunder." Churchtown Strong Patsy Donovan says: "The prospects of the Brooklyns were never better, figuring from the disposition of the men In the opening practice play Saturday. Roll's acquisition is a big factor and with Mclntyre, Strlcklett, Seanlnn, Ea son, Pastorius and the other pitchers in the shape they are, we fear none of the other clubs. Take it from me— the Su perbas will be pressing the leaders all the way." Depend Upon Rube Connie Mack says: "The Athletics lost the nennant last year chiefly be cause our pitchers suddenly slumped and we had to experiment too much at third base. I believe these two prob lems have been solved. We expect Waddell, Plank and Hender to show the form which won the pennant in 1905. This is no Idle prophecy. Whenever these men are In good condition they pitch winning ball. Their condition in the past shows that, and we know that they are in proper shape this season. I do not say we will win the pennant, but we will be pretty close to the top at the finish." Philies in Line "Since I have been managing base ball teams I have never made predic tion! as to the result of penrianl races." says Billy Murray, "and 1 don'l care to do so now. So far as the Phlladel 1 hla club is coi rued, 1 like the make up of the team and am confident they will show good results. The spirit Is there. I have been managing ii teams for nineteen years and I have never seen a more willing set of play ers than those comprising the Philadel phia team." Hanlon Up a Tree "It would be a Joke to try to predict what the Heels are going to do thia year." said Ned Hanluii. "I haven't the slightest idea how this bunch (if youngsters will Btack up against the I teams of the National league, and you can put it down thai I'm not kulhk to make any random guesses where I haven't any dope al all to k<> mi. l wouldn't make any forecast laßt year, when I knew more about the players under me, and I most assuredly Won't hazard my reputation mi east when I have never seen in mtluii half the Kids for this season."
