a captain miyt be held within ten days

F GREAT BATTLE MAY BE HELD INUTAH I I
Continued from Page One
probably will b strictly private I is
believed that Jeffries and Johnson and
their managers will confer with Glen
son a Ricka and that I definite a
nouncement of the time an place se
lected and the purse and picture prtv
vilege agreements will b made
Rickard Interests Fighters
Both pugilists are impressed with the
I businesslike propositions submitted by
Rickard who not only made a cash deposit
me c d
posit of J2000 with stakeholders to
I pltof 2OCH stkeb lder sup
I port his bid of 101600 Dut offers to post
130090 more within atxiy days and the
I J0 sxf dy
other 50000 two days before the fight
takes place He made only
tkes plce one propo
sition
None of the offers a apoepted or re
jected Decision a to who shall b
aware the plum will be made tomor
row it was announced after the bids
had been opened and given passing con
sideration Jeffries wa not at the
meeting He was represented by Sam
Berger his manager Jack Johnson was
on the scene in person attended by his
manager Samuel Little Robert P
Murphy preliminary stakeholder
opened the bids
Nearly a thousand of the best known
sporting men and theatrical men and
promote were present lad the meet
ing been held at Meyers hotel as orig
inally planned there would not have
been room fo a quarter of those who
desired to see the bids opened and who
olne
made a journey to Hoboken for that
purpose after Governor Hughes had
prohibited the affair being held in New
York Several of the bidders sought for
information alt the picture privilege
8 soon as the gathering was ready for
business Johnson spoke up and de
I clared that the revenue from the mov
care
insr nictures must eo to the fighters
Its the only fair way and I was s
understood from the beginning he de I
clared and the subject was dropped
Coffroth is commonly credited with a
close alliance with the persons controlling
ing the two basic patents of the moving
picture machine Gleason is known a a
close personal friend of Sam Berger manJ i
ager for Jeffries Thus the talk among
sporting men I that Gleason and Coffroth
pooled their interests but that at the last
moment Richard who pulled off the
GansNelson fight came in with a threat
to bid such an enormous sum that I
Would not b denied
The result was according to general I
belief that Gleason already united with
Coffroth in one bid for Cola Ocen
View or San Francisco also united with
Rickard in the offer for Utah Novada
Qr California
I Tom McCarey and Eddie Graney both
big bidders seemed to realise tat thy
were not to be considered seriously Mc
Carey said before the bids were opened
The cards have been stacked against
my Los Angeles club But If the highest
and best bid that has no private strings
atche to it is to be accepted Los An
gles will get the fight
After the bids were opened he said
I have bid the most money a guarantee
of 110000 and 5 per cent of the picture
proceeds I they turn that down i
shows that somebody is getting more
than appears on the bids submitted
A Surprise Revealed
The opening of the bids today besides
revealing the apparent CoffrothGleason
Rickard combination yieldedanother sur
prise the fact that a promoter could of
fer and back it with cash a purse of
1110000 to be divided as the contestants
saw fit
AW
Wh le the sporting public had commonly
agreed that this I to b the greatest
fight in the history of the prise ring it
was not believed that a promoter would
bid more than 80000 an would then
claim onethird of the moving picture rev
enue Incidentally it is conservatively
estimated that If the fight runs twenty
or twentyfive rounds on a clear day the
moving pictures 1 displayed throughout
the world will b worth at least 500000
Both Jeffries and Johnson appeared at
the Madison Square Garden appare m
what will probably be their last similar
display before the public prior to the
fight But contrary to expectation th
garden was not well filled Johnson came
on first and sparred with a white oppon
oppn
ent in a mild manner Jeffries came on
an hour and a half later and went five I
snappy rounds with Sam Berger the fast
est work he has done in public since he
started training for the fight The crowd
sized up Jeffries as being in good condi I
tion and showing good form but his old
nose trouble bothered him considerably I
Graney representing the Tuxedo Ath i
latIn club of San Francisco made a bid I
involving three different propositions In
Ivlvin thre
dlternt prpltona
his fn proposition Graney offered i
p cent of the gross receipts with a r I
ant of 75000 th management to have
sole ownership of the picture privileges t
the second W M per cent of the gross
receipts with a p guarantee and an
of the picture
offer of 439000 for onethird te pi
tare proceeds and the third proposition
proes an
was no guarantee 90 per cent of the gross receipts with
Graney agreed i the offer was accepted
cepted to acree buid pavilion seating 2MW
Francisco people in or within five miles of San
J h Gleason of San Francisco in com
mission of James Coffroth submitted a
bid of 125000 for a fight on July 4 a
either the Colma Athletic club o Ocean
View or San Francisco reserving full
rights to the picture prceeds Gteason
agreed if the bid was accepted Immedi
ately to deposit a check for 30000 Qlea
son made a second proposition of I purse
of 75000 and 66 23 of the picture receipts
cept
A third proposition provided an offev
of 80 per cent of the gross receipts a
6 23 per cent of the picture rep Cot
froth agreed to deposit 10000 if the offer
was accepted
A cablegram was received from Hugh
D Mcintosh of Australia offering 91601
to each of the fighters for a contest in
this country Ho to each fighter for A
contest in either England o France and1
50008 to each fighter for a contest In
Australia No check accompanied the
offer and Mclntoshs bid was not considered
I County Attorney Job P Lyon and
Attorney General J R Barnes nave their I
way about It the keen desire which Mr
Jeffries has for caving in the smoked
front of Mistah Johnson will not b real
ized in Salt Lake In other words nei
ther the county attorney nor the attor
ney general believe in the gentle art of
prize fighting and both will do all in their
power to prevent the mill from being
pulled off here
GovernorWilliam Spry says that he is
not Informed on the law governing prizefights
fights nor upon his authority in the mat
upn
ter and therefore does not care to b
quoted
This is what Mr Lyon says My atti
tude toward the JeffriesJohnson fight 18
no different from my attitude toward any
other prize fight Prize fighting I clearly
against the law in Uah and I shall do
all in my power to prevent the fight or to
punish the offenders afterward I think
that is all I have to say I

RILEY BOXING BENEfiT
FINANCIAL SUCCESS
Yesterday H K Downing manager
of the Manhattan Athletic club turned
over to the city police department
50016 the net proceeds of the boxing
benefit given Saturday night for the
family of the late C C Riley the special
cial officer shot while arresting highwaymen
The success of the benefit was a
cause for much gratification to the club
management and to the police depart
ment the members of which had taken
a very active interest in the disposal
of the tickets Mrs Riley when pre
sented with the money was greaUy
affected and could hardly find wo4
to express her thanks
Through other efforts on the part
of the fellow officers of their late
comrade it was possible to Increase
the benefit to close to four figures
with the result that the widow and
children of the off er are not now in
financial need
VANT CHANCE tOR TIlE
High School Basketball Candidates I
Out in Fore and After State I
Honors
The Salt Lake High school having closed
one of the most successful football sons
sons in the history of the school Is I now
turning its attention towards basketball
In the second practice of the season held
yesterday in th Eaton gymnasium 2
turned out in suits and it is evident the
Red and Black boys are out for another
championship
Last year although the school furnished
a fast five Professor George A Eaton re
fused to allow his boys to enter th scho
lastic lee owing to the failure of the
other schools to observe tbe fifteenhour
rule The fact that the High school lads
were up in their studies and being held
out of th race because other schools did
not observe the rule caused a bitter feel
ing among the players We can beat
them whether they observe the rules or
not was the cry of the R and Black
live yet they were forbidden t compete
The lads are hopiig that no such ruling
will take place this year
Among those who won their II last
season are Mclutyre Fitzpatrick Hurl

lONDON fANS BELIEVE
JEFFRIESVILL WIN
I London Dec 1A grAt deal of in
terest is being taken here in the John
sonJeffries heavyweight championship
battle British sportsmen know that the
fight will b held in America despite
the 150 offer made by Hugh McIn
tosh who wants to have the big battle I
take place in the British Isle The
English sporting press is taking an im
partial view of mater and th reviews
here have favored neither man although
there is a strong feeling thatJeffries
will b able to effect a knockout without i
serious trouble The following taken I
from Sporting Life gives a fair notion
Spring ge noton
of our sentiments
i I An impression seems to prevail in
some quarters that the famous negro
will prove to clever for Jeffries and
that the latter will never b able to p
erate Johnsons defense Why this
should b we fail to see Jeffs fearful
rushes broke don the defense even of
James J Corbett and there is no reason
to believe that Johnson fine boxer as
he undoubtedly isis any whit superior
to Corbett as a master of defense As
an aggressive boxer Johnson is not
great he says s frankly hlmfelf
while he certainly cannot punch any
thing lk s hard as either Fitxaim
nions or Sharkey Now neither of this
pair could make the least impression
whatever on the rugged exboiler rivet
er and why Johnson should succeed
here they have failed is hardly obvious
to an unprejudiced critic
