Baseball, Racing, foxing STORY THAT JEFFRIES WAS DOPED READILY CREDITED BY HIS FRIENDS Offers Only Satisfactory Explanation of Disappointing Showing Made by Big Boy Last Monday at Reno in Final Appearance as Undefeated Heavyweight Champion—Was Advanced by Los Angeles Sportsmen Aboard Berry-Hancock Special on Return Trip and Borne Out by Tame Efforts of For mer King of Pugilists Against His Arch-Enemy JAY DAVIDSON Suggestions to the effect that Jeffries was "doped" before he entered the ring last Monday at Reno are finding favor with the returning Los Angeles sportsmen who saw the awful farce in which the negro stopped Jeffries In the fifteenth round. Many explanations were offered by his three hundred mends aboard the Berry-Hancock special, but Tom Carrigan, the mining magnate, was the only one to suggest that Jeff had been doped. When the special pulled into the Arcade station yesterday morning and the members of the party heard the reports from Reno to the effect that Jeffries had been "doped, it was a great relief, because it seemed to answer the one great question, "What-was the matter with Jeff?" ■ •,.,,». Those who did not go to the. fight cannot realize what a miserable effort Jeff made. Once the greatest gladiator of the ring, he not only disappointed himself and his friends, but he startled them mosjt disagreeably with the utter lack of anything that goes to make a great fighter, with the exception of his gameness, The man who outboxed the peerless Corbett in their last battle, the man who beat Sharkey, Fitzsimmons, Gus Ruhlln, Peter Jackson and other great fighters so badly that they were put out of business, and the man who ■was feared for his bull-like rushes and irresistible aggressiveness, was a rank amateur at the game last Monday. He had nothing at all—not even being able to defend himself against Johnson's well advertised right uppercut at any time. For such a remarkable and startling: form reversal, there must be some explanation. The world knows that Jeff did his best and that he would not be guilty of anything approaching the nature of deceit regarding his condition. The world also knows that he would prefer death to the crushing defeat he sustained last Monday. He never would have made the match had he not been j satisfied that he could fight up to form and win. So what Is the explanation of his failure? . ... . Frankly, and knowing Jeffries as a great fighter and one who thinks more of his friends than he does of himself, I cannot figure anything as a satisfactory explanation other than that the story of "doping" is well founded. Jeff fought like a man in a trance, wholly oblivious of all that was going on and hardly realizing that he was in the ring. Johnson left openings that Jim Flynn would have grabbed off the reel, but Jeff could not get started at them. When he passed up several of these and was chided about it by his seconds, he said that he saw the openings, but to save his life he could not take advantage of them, as he could not get to working right at all. When he could land his blows carried no more steam than those of a light weight and Johnson never was bothered at nil by them. With slugging as his forte and his hope, he got the worst of the few mixups because he was If' he was "doped," who did the job, and when? If he was not "doped," what was wrong with him? Johnson did not hurt him as much as Sandy Fer guson hurt Jack Burns, and although Jeff was knocked out he did not take one tenth the punishment he stood up under to win from Fitzsimmons and Sharkey, who could not knock him off his pins. Johnson did nothing wonderful beyond the fact that he knocked out the greatest gladiator in ring history and did it without inflicting any punishment to speak of in the fourteen and a half rounds they fought. His performance appears as a greater feat by comparison than from actual hard work and punishing effect. That Jeff was only a shadow of his once great self may be true, but even Fitzsimmons, Sharkey or Corbett could have done better than Jeff, who could at least have made things inter esting for the negro for a few seconds before he blew up, providing he was not "doped" so thoroughly that he was dead to all surroundings, which seems to have been the cas.e. Jeffries never was a coward, and his heart always has been as strong as steel so all talk about him going into the ring In a scared, nervous state is wrong He was less nervous last Monday than at any time In his ring career just previous to the hour of battle. If he had been a coward and was afraid of Johnson he never would have made the match. He appeared to be in good con dition and certainly was good enough to give Johnson some exciting moment* for a round or two at least. But he never even warmed up the big negro, who had his troubles with Tommy Burns, Sam Langford. Sandy Ferguson and others who do not class with Jeffries. There was something radically wrong outside all consideration of physical condition, and what that one thing wrong happened to be the fans want to know. It certainly was not with Jeffries' heart or brain and was beyond his control or consent. Whatever it was is bound to come to surface sooner or later, and the world wants to know It as soon as possible. Jeff may have an idea, but he is too game and too sensitive to talk about any thing in the nature of an excuse. Lack of condition may have resulted in his defeat after he had been worn down to a state of exhaustion that would force nature to rebel at further ef fort But a fighter in the good condition of Jeff would have done at least as well in a few rounds as he showed in his bouts in training, which Jeff did not do Nervousness of the extreme nature that would have to prevail to force him into a state of absolute helplessness, as he appeared throughout every round would of necessity have to be noticeable to critical eyes like those of Corbett, Van Court, Choynski, Attell, Berger and others behind him. Fright, something wholly foreign to Jeffs nature, would appear before he had entered the ring, but it was not In evidence. Jeff was in good enough humor to joke with Johnson and crack a smile after each of the early rounds. But with It all he never could get started, his blows lacked steam and he never could gauge distance with any degree of accuracy. Ho'complained of seeing double and of being otherwise affected in his sight so that Johnson al ways seemed to be far away from him. He had no aggressiveness and showed no 6OGrKy« The sporting world Is still stunned by the result. Had it been a hard fight the result would not have occasioned more than momentary surprise, despite the great hope that existed that Jeff would win, but it was a farce because Jeffries could not fight and the battle waged slowly and disappoint ingly to those who Journeyed hundreds of miles in the expectation of seeing a great fight Some explanation is necessary to clear the atmosphere, because it is impossible to believe that a big, robust, healthy man of the fighting ability of Jeffries could deteriorate so fast and become so changed in the time elapsing between his last fight previous to the affair of last Monday. Something was radically wrong and Jeffries probably will be able to figure it out before anybody else. When he does, the world hopes that his natural reticence and sensitiveness will not prevent him from malting it known. What ever may have occurred, nothing that would reflect upon him could be possible, because the big follow never did a wrong thing in his life md his great re gret now is that his friends lost money backing him to win.

Rickard finds it difficult to make an official ruling on the technical points involved, but is disposed to rule that the interference of Jeffries sec onds in helping him to get up after the second knockdown constitutes a disqualification. He had this to say on the subject today: "Jeffries was not counted out, al though 1 am satisfied he could never have got up wtlhin the ten seconds when he went down the second time if his seconds had not put their hands on and pushed him up. This assistance disqualified Jeffries and I was trying to get between the fighters and stop the fight on that account when John son sent him down for the third time with a left and right on the jaw. The pictures will show that I got between them when this third knockdown came and gave the fight to Johnson before the timekeeper could counut ten. Therefore 1 believe it should stand as a disqualification, although, as I have said, Jeffries would have been counted out had the disqualification not oc- cuvred." Rickard's attention was railed to the widespread agitation against the pic tures of thf> fight being shown, partic ularly in the southern states. "I still hold a sixth interest in tho picturp.s and am naturally interested; but I do not think this agitation will amount to anything, except to advertise the pic tures. The feeling will die out in a few days." Reno is like a deserted village today.

Angels Jump on Sutor in the Fourth Inning, Murphy Pelting the Ball Over Left Field Fence with Two Men on Bases. Daley Successfully Tries a Thrilling Squeeze Play in the Fifth-Castleton Opens Up Rather Unsteady in the First Spasm, but Soon Regains His Control As a special ire"at to bring a smile to the gloomy faces of the traln-tlred fight fans who Journeyed out to Chutes to forget the past ami drown their fight melancholy in draught* of the national game, the Angela took a second victory from the league-leading Seals yesterday by the score of 4 to 2. Castle ton arid Smith opposed Sutor and Berry, and Castleton, after the first Seal onslaught upon Ills delivery, settled down to real twirling with the bUachers behind him. Frisco looked like the dope until the lust of the fourth, and Sutor was heaving greut bull. From that time on. however, the waves we re turning and the Seals could not swim in the flood. Every member of the Angel band took a long look at Henry Berry's melancholy expression in the grancktand at the opening of their division of the fourth. and with that inspiration Sutor's curves enlarged the hall to a hitting size and the game was won. To Murphy, the new Dillonlte in the left garden, the credit for the victory must go, for his beautiful lob over the left center fence with two on the sacks brought home the SealsKin, and after that the northern diamond stars lost their norve. Only one chance was given the northerner* to make i final stand for the victory when "Ping" Bodie took the stick in the eighth with Mohler on first. One of the heavy hitting outfielders homers would have tied it up, bat the fans waited in vain us the great Botlie fell an easy prey to Castleton's elusive curves, and he made a heavy splash In the strikeout tank. Caatleton showed superb control and presented only one bag on a close call of Van Haltren's. The Seals touched him up for four safe ones, two nt which were doubles, but they were wide enough apart to keop the tallies down ami give the Frisco squad 'little hope for runs of the earned variety. Sutor allowed a greater number of the safe hags than Castleton, but twirled his usual steady game and gave the subs no chance for a warming. The tally keeper's job started In the first of the second. With two out, Berry got to the initial sack on Howard's muff of a pop ovor first, and stolo second. MeArdle doubled to right, scoring Berry, and Sutor followed suit, scoring McArdlo. Bhaw singled, hut was forced out at second by Mohler's In field grounder. Score: San Francisco 2, Loa Angeles 0. Los Angeles did not seem able to get started and the way that the Berry boys were chopping them into the outfield cast a gloomy spell over the fans. In the Angel part of the fourth there was n change in the odds. Bernard started the affair with a double to left after Daley had filed out to Mohler. Howard got a walk, but Dillon forced him out at second. With two ('.own and two de spairing Angels on the sacks. Murphy gave one look at the horseshoe over the press box and gave his bat the signal fnr some scoring. Two strikes were called before the right one crossed the pan, hut Murphy picked it and banged a clean one over the left center fence, bringing in Bernard and Dillon and incidentally treeking over the lust station himself. Wheeler could not stand the prosperity and went out on an easy grounder. The local boys were not done yet, as in their side of the fifth they landed another one. Delmas spotted a double to the center feme and Smith got to first on a close decision. Castleton struck out but Dairy followed with a beautiful squeeze that scored Delmas. Them ended the scoring, but the Angels kept up the bingllng and had Sutor using all his cunning to keep them from more tally gathering. The spectacular manner In which the local hoys and the league leaders are overturning the dope is a delight to the fans, and although the bleacher crowds hive dwindled in the heat, the fans who are nut there are missing some of tha li'nest ball offered for some time. Today's game will ko a long way to decide the prophets for the picking of the rag winners, and with Miller and Tozer op nosing each other there should be some great ball. pxhlbition of the pictures In the city.
