THE HERALD'S SPORTING NEWS
GOVERNOR OF UTAH REFUSES TO
PERMIT JEFERIES-JOHNSON FIGHT
FINALLY ANNOUNCES IN EMPHATIC TERMS THAT LAW IS OP*
POSED TO IT AND HE WILL ENFORCE STATUTE
Long Awaited Statement of Chief Executive, Upon Whom Depend
ed All Hopes, of Sportsmen in Mormon State, Comes in Inter
view and Assures San Francisco That Greatest Scrap of
Century Will Be Pulled Off in That City—Nevada
Is Not Seriously Regarded in the Runnings
SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. s.—"lt isn't possible for the fight to
take place here and come within the law. I will uphold the law
if it becomes necessary." With these words. Governor William
Spry tonight swept aside all doubt as to his official attitude toward
the Jeffries-Johnson championship contest and disposed of the plan
of the promoter, Tex Rickard, to stage the fight in Salt Lake.
Up to the present time Governor Spry has been non-committal
as to the course that would be pursued if actual preparations were
made for holding the big event in Utah. This attitude, he explains,
was prompted by his reluctance to interfere in a matter that properly
concerns the police authorities. His statement to the Associated
Press is as follows:
"The law is so plain in this state that only one construction can
be placed on it. It is not at all possible for the fight to take place
here and come within the law. The first responsibility, of course,
would be upon the chief of police of the city, or the sheriff. But in
my capacity as governor of the state, I will uphold the la<v if nec
essary."
The contract under which Tex Rickard of Ely, NeV., is to ar
range the ring battle permits him to place it in Utah, California or
Nevada. He has announced that Salt Lake would have the first call
on the attraction.
The last word, it has been understood throughout, was with the
governor, and that word was spoken tonight.
With Utah eliminated as a battle ground San Francisco, it is
conceded, is most likely to get the match.
SLASHING SCRAP
IS ANTICIPATED
MEMSIC AND WOLGAST QUIT
WORK TODAY
.Both Possess Knockout Punch and
if They Make It Open Fight,
Bout Should Not Go to
the Limit
Notwithstanding that fight experts
are inclined to make Ad Wolgast the
favorite in his scrap tomorrow night
■with George Memsic, there is a well
defined arid unmistakable sentiment
generally among the fans that Ad is
up against a big job and that it .will
not be much o£ a surprise if Jlemsie
repeats his former victory over th.-
Milwaukee boy. AH this Indicates that
the hoys will be held rather closely in
the odds along about the hour they

that the fans are expecting a ripipng,
Blashing period of. real action from
the first to the last blow.
Memstc will go into the ring about
ntage and it is no
exaggeration to Bay that he will be
in better condition than when he taught
Wolgast several months
tfcis would convince one that he
near to a cinch as is possible for one
fighter to be over another were it not
for the further fact that all mv:-•
niit that Wolgast is a tar better

last meeting is the real question that

Wolgast certainly would bo looked up
on Kjtter fighter, because his
improvement has been something bor
dering upon the remarkable. He may
be so much belter as a fighter now
than then t..at he will be able to whi]
Memsic, but there are many who wil
be found stringing on the Memsl
of the betting when the bell tells then
to k" at it.

problem that has considerably worried
the athletic board at that institution.
The Saints always have been too

St. Vincent wishes to enter the con

Summary:
LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, JANUARY 6, 1910.
R IALTO GOSSIP
JIMMY JI'ALEER. formerly man- ,
ager of the St. Louis Browns, hut i
now directing- the Washington
team in the lane league, is visiting
his brothers, Tom and Owen McAleer,
(or b month before returning to the
snowbound east to prepare (or the
activates of the American league pen
nant chase. McAleer lacks a heap "l 1
being a stranger here, although he left
here eighteen years ago and has been
back only once before. He thinks highly .
it Dolly Gray and Walter Johnson, j
Los Angeles boys who are stars of his
pitching staff, and also speaks In |
great praise of the excellent work of j
our only "Bull" Perrlne, former Coast
league umpire, but now on the staff of
President Ban Johnson. McAleer be
lieves Gray will have the best season |
of his 'career this year, and is enter
taining great hopes that the crack
southpaw will be able to deliver the
goods. He promises that Dolly shall
have ample opportunity this season,
knowing that slight work does not
keep Dolly in condition. He is not
looking for players, he says, but it is j
noteworthy that Hen Berry and Hap
Hogan linger about him all the time,
as if they were keeping eagle eyes on
him and their players.
Hap Hogan and Hen Berry had an
other rag-chewing contest yesterday,
to the edification of the crowd that
listened. It was better than a week
on the Orpheum circuit. From base
ball the kidding- drifted to fighting and
wrestling, and both finally got to the
point where they were daring each
other to "put something on the. line if
you think so." A wrestling match was
arranged, minus the side bet. and will
be pulled off at Hen's office in private
unless something intervenes to pre
vent before they cool off. Hogan tells
Berry he if a joke, and Hen replies in
a stage whisper that Hap is neglecting
to oil the wheels in his dome.
Jealous raging continues up 'Frisco |
■way because Wolgast refused to quit
a real offer down here and go up there
to fight Nelson for nothing. One sport
writer in particular refers to Los An
geles as a "bush" town, and says the
'Frisco sports wink when they hoar
about Wolgast getting $2000 for his end
to fight Memsic, adding if he draws
$1000 for the job he will be getting
more than ho is accustomed to seeing
at one time. Los Angeles Is -the big
gest thorn that ever stuck in the
'Frisco side. The sleepy heads in the
fight game up there consider them
selves lucky to pull off a big fight once
a year, being content to stage scraps
between fighters of the coffee and
doughnut class at other times, and the
fans up that way, in. keeping with
what they have been accustomed to for
years, patronize them. They read of
fights here between scrappers like
Langfonl. Flynn, "U'olgast. Nelson,
Freddie Welsh, Memsic, Papke and
others of that class every few weeks,
and wink again, disbelieving the tele
graphic stories and really thinking
somebody down this way is working
off an advertising bunk on them. They
have had too much Coffroth and too
little McCarey up that way. They
never hear of fighters getting $2000 and
$3000 for ordinary fights up that way.
except when, once in awhile, a real
fighter strays along and gets hooked.
Then it is seldom. 'Frisco is the pre
liminary to the Los Angeles main
event in fight affairs, a*.all the world
knows.
Chick Wright has. decided to quit
amateur ranks for a career as a pro
fessional billiardist. AVliile this means
a distinct loss to amateur billiards, it
•also means that another coast
will disturb the peace of the profes
sional cup artists of the world, and he I
may be expected to get his share of the !
legal tender that is distributed among
the S'intillators of the green cloth
hereafter. Wright will beat them as
often as they beat him, at least.
It was thirty years ago this very day
that a kind fate opened the eyes of a
most promising kldiet named Billy
Henderson up in the icebound regions
of Canada at Strabane, near Hamil

six years later this handsome young
man woko up one morning to find him
self entranced and delighted by the
climate and scenery of Southern Cali
fornia. Being inclined to athletics he
soon was connected with the Los An
geles Athletic club, the leading ath
letic organisation on the coast, and
to mention one is to recall the other
moil naturally. Billy is as popular ai

Barney Oldfield and Tom Jones were
headlineVs in a little sketch entitled,
"Subduing a Revolution," in a Frisco
hashery while there last week and are
known along the Rialto now as the
"Fighting Twins." A waiter had seme
grievance against Barney and slipped
up behind him to land on his jaw.
Jones was near by and at about tni
same moment the waiter's right swung
to its goal on Barney's anatomy Jones
put two others in splendid succession
and with groat accuracy to similar
point? upon the features of the as
saulting waiter. Other waiters joined
in and alter Barney nnd Tom had
completed the task before them the
place looked like a moving picture
scene of the head-on collision between
the Twentieth Century and a freight
train. All waiters were snoozing
peacefully, but tables, chairs _ and
tableware were piled in profusion
about the place. Barney says Jones
can "go some" when he levels.
Frank Chance, the brainy and high
priced leader of the Cubs, will be in
Los Angeles today. He comes in from
his orange grove to see Hen Berry,
and it is rumored that Chance will go
to Bakerslield with Heuuel to look
over some oil properties. Chance al
ready has decided that Los Angeles
shall be his permanent address for all
time to come.
Rumors from Salt Lake City are to
the effect that Jack Atkin of Los An
gelea may sport the managerial reins
at the Buena Vista Park meeting next
spring. These rumors, of course, do
not come from official sources, but it
is known that his name has been men
tioned and that in the event W. W.
Finn does not land the appointment
for another year, Atkin will be the
most likely man for the place. Atkin
is the best possible man available at
this time, and tho directors of the
Utah Jockey club could make no bet
ter selection. He is thoroughly ac
quainted with horsemen, racing con
ditions in the west and is thoroughly
competent to handle the position vviili
honor to himself and satisfaction to
the jockey club and public. He could
not be seen last night regarding the
rumor, but those who want to see Salt
Lake City have a meeting that will he
a credit to the sport and satisfactory
all the way round to all patrons in
that city will be pleased if Atkin is
asked to take the place and will ac
cept it. •
Just as was predicted in these, col
umns several days aero. Governor Sp'-y
of Utah has set his foot down very
emphatically as against the idea of
holding the Jeffries-Johns6n scrap in
Salt Lake City. The law will not per
mit it and the governor will not wink
at its violation. That disposes of Salt
Lake City and practically assures
Frisco of the big mill. Many have
thought all along that the substitution
of the name Salt Lake City for Frisco
was a subterfuge, and now it appears
.1, i certainty.

[Associated Press]
' PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. s.—Propne
tying' an eight-team all-coast league as
i the solution of the complex baseball
situation on this coast, Judge W. W.
McCredie, owner of both Portland base
ball teams, in an interview from Wash
ington, asserts that not only is Hie
north coast not a "hush" town circuit,
but that the Northwestern Portland
team mude more money than its Coast
league sister, except in its home town.
Judge McCradi* said:
"Jt is absolutely untrue that I \\;i I
not ■willing to support a team in the
Northwestern league in 1010, provided
permission was granted by the Pacific
< loast league. My support lias been all
the time for the Northwestern league
and still is."
Judge McCredie said that if this per
mission hail hern granted he woul.l
have carried out his part of the agree
,,ii lit as to having a Northwestern
league team. "Tins cities composing
the Northwestern league are not 'bush'
cities," he said, "as my distinguished,
but unthoughtful nephew, dubs them."
and to prove his point he asserted that
Portland's Northwestern league team
during the first nine weeks, while on
the road in 190S, took in more than
J2ouo more than did the Coast league
team during a similar period.
Judge McCredie said that the North
western league lost money at home be
c-iuse Portland pinned its preference to
the Coast leacuo. Judge MeCiedie also
declared that some day an all-coast
league , with four cities in the north
and four in the south, would be or
ganized and be a success.
