Baseball, Racing, Boxing
Fighters, Trainers and Sporting Writers Disheartened by Outlook
for Future of Pugilism in America-Jeffries Puts in Another Big
Day in Camp and Announces Thursday as Windup Day of
Training-Tells Close Friends He Never Was Better in
His Career and Considers Himself Already Back to
His Best Form-Johnson Looks Fit and Ready
RENO, Nov., June 27.-"Well, this is
the last. Pugilism as it has flourished
many decades will be a lost art in the
VnlteA States, and that means in the
■world, when the Jeffries-Johnson fight
is over." .
Such is the prediction of the whole
fighting world, apparently. It is voiced
by fighters, trainers and sporting
■writers as they loiter about tho hotels
of the city or thp quarters of the prin
cipals, patiently awaiting the coming of
next Monday and the decision that is
to be handed down in the arena pn
that day.
Whenever two old friends, comrades
nt many ringsides, meet, often for the
first time in years, that is almost in
variably the greeting. A touch of re-
Rrot for exciting days and battles of
the past, which they believe are gone
forever, creeps into every conversation.
A feeling almost of sadness underlies
gathering hosts of fight banter of the
gathering hosts of fiht followers. All
seem certain that this is the end; that
when the "shouting and the tumult" at
the ringside has died and the time of
parting has come, there will be nothing
to pay but "goodby." It will not be
"until we meet again."
"It will be a great fight. And it will
■bo the last great fight," said one gray
haired ringside veteran today. "Tho
game has reached the end. I have fol
lowed since I knew enough to follow
anything. I have learned to know all
these fellows around here by meeting
them at the fighting centers, whether
at New Orleans, Jacksonville, San
Francisco, Goldfleld or Reno. We have
followed the game together and we
have followed it to the end. I am only
glad that it has not Just dwindled
away; but will go out in a blaze of
It was a day of reminiscences and
tales of other fights and other fighters
today. There was little else to do.
Jeffries' workout in the early morning
came as a complete surprise. Hardly
one of the usual crowd of spectators
reached Moana in time to witness it.
From then until Johnson dawdled
through the listless ten rounds with his
Bparring partners late in the afternoon
there was nothing to do but talk. It
•was too hot to walk much and the
groups of sporting celebrities clung to
the shade and gossiped endlessly.
Once relieved of his worries over
the arena, which marred tho beginning
of his day, Promoter and Referee Rlck
ard had time to answer many tele
grams and discuss many details of his
preparations with his subordinates.
Most important of these was the ar
rangement for transferring from San
Francisco of $30,000 of the purse money
now on deposit in the coast city. Rick
ard was asked by Tim Sullivan of New
York, stakeholder, to attend to this
fit nnce, and the funds probably will
be in a Reno bank tomorrow. .Sullivan
himself, according to his telegram to
day, expects to arrive July 1.
The disturbance over the arena was
en used by the loss for a time of the
plans. When the blue prints had been
found, the carpenters' went at their
work with a will and the framework
had been partially clothed with the
bleacher planks before the night fell.
Rickard and Johnson were in confer
ence for almost an hour shortly before
noon and after the negro had done his
eight miles of road work in the early
morning. Both stated that the matter
under discussion was without direct
bearing on the fight, but would not say
what had been talked of. Johnson
visited a bank and cashed a check
Jater, then was whirled back to camp.
When the negro, clad in his usual
ring costume of black and blue, stepped
Into the ring in the late afternoon, the
roped square was flanked by a big
gathering of visitors. Al Kauffman
was called on after a few minutes of
medicine ball work, but the four rounds
which followed were devoid of stirring
moments. Kauffman puffed like a
broken down race horse. He was forced
to do all the leading, Johnson merely
blocking his blows and sending back
no exchanges. The altitude is bother
ing Kauffman consfderably, and John
son's easy breathing and perfect con
dition are sharply noticeable beside
Ills sparring partner's gasping work.
Monahan came next and Johnson
went after him with playful force In
the first of their four rounds. Blood
dripped from Monahan's noso and lips
in less than a minute. Johnson shot In
two straight lefts with flashing speed
tind with precision. From then on he
was content with an occasional display
of speed, and joked with Morrison and
111r crowd about the ring as they tvs-
Fled and pulled each other about nnri
clinched. Two rounds with Dave Mills
followed and this concluded the day's
In all the boxiner Johnson did not
exert himself once. His breath was un
hurried when it was over and the per
h|iir;ition was gathering on his whole
body In a natural way. The actual
lioxinj,' was apparently more of a eon
cesslon to the curiosity of the crowd
than anything else. It was just play

in L. Sullivan, undefeated London
prize i!r g champion, watched Johnson
work out, He stood on a rock far back
of the crowd at the ringside and looked
on, The playful side of the exhibition
i vidently did not appeal to the old ivar
rior, as he rumbled something; about

day and has had his parting; tussle with

of training for his encounter with
At least to his own satisfaction Jeff
ries has answered the question of
whether he could come back. On the
rubbing table this morning, after elev
en hard, fast rounds of boxing and two
rounds of pulling ami hauling with
Ffirmer Burns, he paid:
"When my brother John arrived In
a few mlnut s ago and asked me
how I felt, I told him llirit T was never
in better condition to fisht in my life.

fnro my retirement, and I will be pre
pared for any kind of going. From
now on until Thursday, when probably
I will wind up the work, I will give my
attention to boxing, with just a bit of
sprinting in the evenings. After that
it will be solid rest and tho drying out
Jeffries' encounters with Corbett,
Berger. Phoynski and Bob Armstrong
early today were his first boxing bouts
since coming to Reno. He was out of
bed before 7 o'clock and had given his
sparring- partners orders to prepare for
the woritout. Choynski, Berger and
Armstrong faced him for three rounds
each, and Corbett took a turn for two
sessions. The bout with Berger was
an interesting one. Jeffries slashed at
his manager with an assortment of
smashing blows, and In the second
round placed a right hook that bent
the San Franciscan and robbed him of
his wind. Jeffries asked Berger If he
had had enough after the second, and
laughed when the business agent came
back for more.
Armstrong was dropped to his knees
during one onslaught when he was
dancing before the master. The big
sparring partner was Just breaking
from a clinch when a right body punch
took the fight out of him and ended
hostilities for several seconds. Arm
strong had a hard time taking care of
himself for the remainder of the round.
"When the two rounds with Burns

has been little betting, most of those in

their money at the ringside. John E.

Col. Matt Winn, Manager, Says
Meeting Will Start Nov. 1
for Long Season
NEW YORK, June 27.—C01. M. J.
Winn, back in New York today, after
having managed the most successful
race meeting Louisville has had in a
decade, announces that preparations
are being m ids to open the Juarez
track early next fall, possibly as early
as November 1.
"In the unfortunate event of a tem
porary cessation of racing in New York
after September 1," he said, "Juarez
will open its gates earlier than Thanks
giving day, probably by November 1.
The directors of the Juarez Jockey
club have fixed upon a meeting of at
least 100 days and guaranteeing at
least $3000 a day in added money."

Rialto Gossip
Coast league candidates for the 1910
pennant will resume the fight this aft
ernoon in Los Angeles. Frisco and
Portland. The Angels will have much
easier game this week than last, ai
the Sacramentans will bo the victims
of a nine-game series, and tho Senators
are gracing the cellar championship
seat without opposition or competition.
Charlie Graham, one of the best liked
magnates in the Coast league, will get
a lot of sympathy from tho fans while
the slaughter proceeds day by day, but
the Angels will not be in on this sorry
for-you-old-chap business. The rest of
forty-eight hours should put the Angel
tribe in the game fresh and full of life
and with a pitching staff that can be
depended upon at all times the fielders
should play up to the standard of ex
cellence that featured their games last
week. It would be little short of a dis
graceful humiliation for our boys if
they should accidentally lose a game
during the series, while, on the other
hand, nine straight victories will ad
vance them awfully close to the top
rung. Portland and Vernon cannot ex
pect to have much more than a see
saw fight for the two weeks they play
In Portland, while Oakland and Frisco
will hardly do any better. The fans
aro showing a commendable interest in
tho game now and the daily attendance
has been getting better right along. In
terest, especially of the enthusiastic
sort that causes the fan to sit in the
grandstand and bleachers and make a
big noise all the time encourages the
players and helps to win games. There
should be an old-time crowd of not less
than 2000 on duty this afternoon.
George Hancock, who is looking after
the affairs of the Berry-Hancock fight
special enterprise, said last night that
the train of six Pullmans had been sold
out and that he had asked for more
cars. He will get an answer from the
railroad company this morning and
hopes to have a favorable one, as ap
plications for accommodations are
pouring in to his office in a steady
stream, and unless the additional
coaches can be had there will be quite
a bunch of disappointed, but dilatory
fans. They have nobody but them
selves to blame, however, as they have
been urged every day to get a move on
and make reservations. The special,
as now made up, will carry 162 fans to
Reno. If the two extra sleepers can be
obtained just fifty-four more can be
accommodated. It looks like there
would be 300 sportsmen from here at
ringside if arrangements for handling
them could be made. Realizing that
one diner will be insufficient to feed
such a bunch of daily boarders, Han
cock has made requisition for another
dining car and says that he has prac
tical assurances that he will get It.
This special offers the most satisfac
tory arrangement for fans who intend
going from here to the fight, as it will
bo a complete European hotel on
wheels, furnishing bed and board all
the time while away. There will be no
scramble or waiting line at bed time or
lunch time, and that should make the
round trip to the fight as highly enjoy
able as human Ingenuity could bring
Naval Fireworks Battle Schedule
for 2d and Water Races
on the Holiday
Sports will be the principal feature
of the Independence day program at
Catalina island and everything in the
athletic line will be included. On the
evening of July 2 in Avalon harbor
there will be a grand naval battle and
display of fireworks and on the morn- i
ing of the big day there will be an
athletic program consisting of races
tor boys, men and women; a fat man's
race, a potato and egg race and a
three-legged contest. Suitable prizes
will be awarded the lucky contestants
and there will be no entry fees for
those who are desirous of entering.
The afternoon's program will be in
the water. Free-for-all swimming
races for amateurs and professionals,
a boys' race, a girls' race and a wo-
I men's race will start the afternoon's
entertainment. One of the features of
the program will be the duck race. A
flock of the water iowl will be turned
loose with their wings clipped to keep
them from aviating and prizes will be
tied to the legs. At a given signal,
when the ducks have been given suf
ficient handicap to make it interest
ing, the contestants will be started
from the shore to capture the ducks.
The duck race last year was the big
feature for the enjoyment of the shore
crowds and it will be even a greater
attraction this season on account of
tin- larger number of entries and the
increasing of the value of the prizes
attached to the legs of the ducks.
Water fencing and a tug of war will
enliven the afternoon's sport and the
speed and fishing launches will be
lined up for short races across the har
bor and from Avalon to the Isthmus.
The big event of the afternoon will
be the water polo game between the
Southern California Swimming asso
ciation and the L,os Angeles Y. M. C. A.
The teams will line up as follows:

and consequently he has acquired a
life-sized peeve. Fred says that any
inquiring friends at Reno may find him
up in suburban row, with a telescope
to reduce the airline distance to the
ring. He declares he positively will
not be anywhere near ringside, as the
top row of the $5 section looks good
to him.
Patsy Brannigan, who recently
trimmed Monte Attell in Pittsburg, has
been promised a match with Frankie
Conley next month and Jack Kelly,
who is looking after his affairs m the
coast, has written to him to prepare
to come west very soon. Brannigan
fought Pal Moore and Jimmy Walsh
to draws, both of them roally belong
ing to the featherweight division, and
he has cleaned up all other bantams
of consequence down east, including
Johnny Coulon, so he looks liko a le
gitimate contender for the title. The
Pittsburg boy will be a big card here
and Conley is anxious for him to come
on and take the match.
Tomorrow will be the last day for
cancellation of fight tickets bought
before the removal of the fight to

Hours Before Game in *
Sheridan of the American league, for
thirty years a professional umpire,
packed his baggage here and half an
hour before the time for the first game
between Washington and New York
surprised Umpire Egan with the an
nouncement that he had shouted "Bat

"Egan," said Sheridan, "I've quit
and you'll have to go it alone today.
I'm going to Chicago on the next
train." ■ «-.
He left a short time afterward for
Chicago, where he will report his res
ignation to Ban Johnson, president of
the American league, tomorrow morn
Egan said he had, no idea of Sheri
dan's intention until the latter told
him that he had quit.
Egan telegraphed Sheridan's action
to President Johnson.
Sheridan is the oldest umpire in
point of service In the country. He
began at Columbus, Ga., in the old
Southern league, and has been in the
American league since its organiza

mond yesterday afternoon by the score
of 12 to 7. A return game is planned
for next Friday afternoon. The Stars
have been playing real baseball in the

able to play the sacks in big league
style. The victory yesterday was only
one of a long string of successes and

If the youngsters maintain their pres
ent form they will break the suprem
acy which James R. Keene'B two
year-olds held for many years and land
Belmont as the leading owner of the
year a prestige he has not had on the
American turf for many years. The

date are Trap Rock, Foot Print, Bab

and Mad Cap, all winners.

Twenty-Third Annual Pacific
States Tournament Next
Tennis Feature
Long and McLoughlin Are Favor
ites Though Opposed by
the Cracks
The Pacific States doubles tourna
ment, the twenty-third annual event
of Its kind, is the next of the scheduled
tennis meetings to engage tho atten
tion of the artists of the racquet. The
Virginia courts at Long Beach will
bo the scene of the play, and the pre
liminary round will start at 9 o'clock
Friday morning. Entries will be re
ceived until 10 o'clock Wednesday
night by B, M. Sinaabauffh, 302 Ex
change building, Third and Hilt
streets, or Dr. Sumner Hardy, 406 Sut
ter street, San Francisco.
Long and McLoughlin will be the
favorites for the week end tourney,
but they will havo no easy time in
winning from some of the Southern
Callfornians. Three spts out of fivo
give little chanco of winning by a bril
liant flash, and endurance and steadi
ness will count Just as much as spec
tacular racing and angle work. Bell
and Bundy in last year's tournament
pressed the Pacific coast three-times
champions, McLoughlln and George
Janes, to a five-set match and almost
kept the title among the southern
stars. McLoughlin and Long are con
sidered a better combination, but their
work In the Australian tournament
against Brookes and Wilding did not
give them a very high mark as a
doubles team, and plnyers who have
seen both pnlrs In action declare that
the McLoughlin-Janes duet Is a more
harmonious one than the MeLoughlin-
McLoughlln's work In a doubles
match Is much superior to his singles
play. He aces more steadily and his
great forehand kill Is given greater
range for action when he does not
have, to play both a right and left
court game. McLoughlin Is not a sin
gles player In the true sense of the
Long, on the other hand, is not in
McLoughlln's class as a doubles
player. His style Is freer and he re
lies on a long sweeping stroke that
seeks the sidelines rather than a slam
ming forehand that brings the aces
more through Its speed than Its place.
Long as a singles player excels Mc-
Loughlin In skill, but In the doubles
he Is far outclassed by the whirlwind
racquet wlelder from San Francisco.
Sinsahaugh and Browne are picked |
to make a strong showing against tho
internationalists and will not give in ;
These preliminary doubles tourna
ments are played In four sections of the
country, the eastern meeting being held
at Longwood, near Boston, July 18, the
western being held at Lake Forest on
the Ontwantsia club courts, July 23,
and the southern tournfly at Atlanta
on the courts of the Atlanta Athletic
club, July 4. The four winning pafc-s
will be sent to Lake Forest, thirty
miles north of Chicago, where on
August 2 will bo held the preliminary
meeting of the United States title tour
nament In the doubles. The winners of
this meet will go to Newport, where on
August 15 they will meet the unde
feated champions, Harold H. Hackett
and Frederick B. Alexander, for the
championship of the United States.
Long and McLoughlin spent yester
day afternoon la getting accustomed to
the Virginia courts, lining up against
the Duarte pair, Will Bacon and Gerald
Young. The courts have received a
coat of chemicals to darken them and
are in fine condition for fast play.
Bleachers are now in the course of con
struction for the opening day and seats
will be reserved for 3000 people.

Monday, July 4, for another meeting
