JACK JOHNSON ORDERED OUT OF MEXICO; U. S. FEDERAL AGENTS AWAIT HIM AT HORDE I FORMER GLOVE CHAMP GIVEN MEXICAN BOOT Wild Life of OBIg Smoke’ Arouses Ire of Lower Cali fornia Officials. HE’S HEADED FOR JAIL By W. BOYD GATEWOOD, International News Staff Correspondent. TLA JUANA, Mexico, June 15.—Jack Jehason, neftro, former heavyweight box inf champion of the 'world, who for eight year* has been a. fugitive from Justice on a conviction of "white slavery” in Chi cago, will be in the custody of the de partment of Justice of the United States late today or early' tomorrow, according to announcement emanating from the executive offices of lower California to day. Johnson has been given twenty-four hourfc in which to leave Mexico, believed to be the last place of refuge on the face of the earth for him. DRIVE AGAINST UNDESIRABLES ON. Caught in the country-wide drive against the undesirables, which la now sweeping hundreds of "men without a country" out of Mexico, Johnson is be ing reported as an "undesirable alien.” United States officers are waiting at the international line. There is no place he can go except to Jail, it is said. Deeplsed by the Mexicans, disowned by the better class of Ms own race and boned by the Americans from their establishments here, Johnson gradually naa been getting himself marked for de portation. Such la the information given out in a statement made today by Superior Judge Luis Cacho of the Tia Juana court, before whom charges of lawlessness and "offensive arrogance” were filed against Johnson. Some ot the charges are theee: Johnson hag a white valet, a poor .American boy, said to have been shell shocked and gassed in the Argonne. He is Jack Johnson’s slave, to ao the black man’s every bidding, the victim of a weakened mental force from hU. war experiences and of which weak ened condition Johnson is said to take outrageous advantage. There are two sinister charges on file against Johnson by two young girls. JBKRTAL ATTACK ON MEXICAN MAID. One charges a brutal attempted attack en Ylncenta Espinosa. 20-year-old maid, formerly In the employ of the black man's white wife, bet who was forced to take haveft in another house to escape John son's alleged abuse. The other charge Is one of a similar na ture brought by an Americanized Mexi can girl, by whose beauty Johnson was drawn. Then there is the common story of two white girls accosted by the negro, but protected when their friends intervened. These charges are actually filed with the Mexican Judge. The Mexican courts move slowly here, but Judge Cacho explained that thesc complaints were part of a chain of evi dence gathered by the Mexican authori ties as a basis for the procedure to de port the prize fighter as an undesirable alien. Part of other evidence concerns the mysterious shooting of Jack John son’# nephew, €us Rhodes, a young negro whom Johnson has taken around with him all over the world. Rhodes was shot when Johnson, his white wife and others of a party were en route from Mexico City to Mexicala. TWO STORIES Ok SHOOTING. Rhodes’ right arm was shattered bv a revolver ball. Johnson told one story im mediately on his arrival at Mexicala with the wounded nephew and another story Biter on. ... The first story was that Rhodes had shot himself. But the wound was in the right arm. The next was that Johnson himself had shot him—accidentally. The Mexican authorities are working on the last story, eliminating the acci dent angle. The motive for this family shooting was a domestic one. the Mexicans claim. They base tbeir findings on the testimony Gs Mrs. Johnson's former maid. x Americans here have interested them selves into Johnson's white boy vaiet and are now conducting an investigation of his circumstances. He claims his name is E. W. Brown, formerly of Chicago. He says his mother lives in Clevela#!. 0.. and that her name is Mrs. Ruth Prentiss, she having mar ried again since theydeath of Brown's father, which was ' before the boy gravttated across the border into the per sonal service of Jack Johnson, fugitive from the law. Meanwhile Jack Johnson's days of fteedom a-e numbered and are growing few. Mexico h*s moved to evict him and Uncle Sam's officers are waiting at the boundary wirh bracelets of steel. Jack Johnson's pathway has been long and sometimes thriving, but at Its end there leoms an American Jail.
