I Harry B Smith writing in the San
T aiiciscj Chronicle says
in spite of the story from New York
I taat Salt Lake might be selected as the
aukground 1 for the 45round fight be
n Jack Johnson and Jim Jeffrie
t i > is little occasion for worry Unques
tonably after the promoters have thor
hly canvassed the situation they will
tiize that Siit Lake is not to be con
shred as a competitor of San Francisco
i Itah city is not assured of the sup
jMii of the authorities and the men who
uii offering surh big money could not af
fljfj to take any chances
There is no city mor > poorly situated
f1 tli handling of a Ug championship
Jiyht than is Salt Lake City This fact
1s1 apparent to those who have studfcd
tin situation Salt Lake is some 24 hours
travel from D nver the first city of any
Importance to the east and 26 hours from
tn Francisco on the west To the Imme
iitte west is Nevada which will not be
atle to adS much in drawing power On
the south is Arizona on the east Colo
ridn with Denver far off and to the
r uii is Idaho Salt Lake although it
t 1jfl1S a population of 125000 is said to
have not more than 100000 residents and
of these many of the Mormon faith so
it is asserted would be opposed to the
boxing game Ogden with something like
15000 people is close at hand within 40
miles but while there are a number of
smaller towns no large centers of popu
lation from which to draw
The eastern man coming west to the
fight would travel almost as cheaply to
San Francisco and would doubtless
prefer to come direct to the coast San
Francisco would have its own large popu
lation as well as the cities in the imme
diate vicinity such as Oakland Sacra
mento Stockton San Jose Fresno and a
host of smaller places To the south
there is the Los Angeles country and to
the north Oregon and Washington
These facts will count when it comes
to drawing the crowd that will be neces
sary to make up a 100000 gate and un
questionably they will be taken into con
Just figure this out Within a radius
of three hours travel from San Fran
cisco there are 1600000 people The same
distance around Salt Lake there are not
to exceed 200000 people
In all the years that I have watched
t fighting game says Jo Humphreys
h richest thing I think that I ever
taw came off in Pittsburg some years
A husky young fellow < juite a glove
fghter and the bully of his ward hap
> en a to run counter to a copper and
tl op had to pinch him To be sure
CL > getting his man nice and quiet the
c rtr i broke a thick nightstick on the
tjgli guys oco In the station rub
1Ig i his head the tough young fellow
jarlfd Youre a big noaccount stiff
and a yellow coward If youd had the
E 111 to meet me without your club Id
i uv > > beat the head off you and Ill do it
tome day
The copper was furious I give you
t club 1 he roared because it was me
dy 1 to bring you in any way at all
1 < an lick you any old time fair and
luaiv If It wasnt that Id lose me job
< t lay me star on the bench shed me
v t and go at ye right now ye cheap
There was a pause while the desk
rgeant ordered them both to quiet
down Then the prisoner spoke up
See here you big A P A he
g owleJ heres a chance for you to show
whether youre a matt or a rabbit Theres
feoln to be a big boxin tourney next
v t k You and me are about of a weight
urs t enter It and see whos a fighter
t rU whos a stiff
Copper Accepts Defi i
Youre Oil howled the cop Youre
on if I lose me Job for U Ill give ye
a yc wont forget in a hurry
t e and dont ye overlook it
Chief of police in those days was
Roger OMara a real Irish sport and a
IOVIT ot be fighting game When he
hfrd of the affair he gave the copper a
I ivt of absence and told him to get into
raining for the battle of his life The
i n sent in their entries and maybe you
think Pittsbiirg wasnt excited about the
en uggle llore people turned out for
rat rinateur tournr > y than most profes
f1a1 shows rouid draw with Jeffries or
Joirisrn for one of the windup men
it was easy to Juggle the drawings so
t < the cop and the tough guy were
joiivd i and when tney came on youd
J 1 iv thought all Pittsburg was going up
to the roof with the applause Chief
OMara was sitting by the coppers cor
ner and was giving him all sorts of good
advice before the gong Three other cop
pers were seconding the bull while the
tough man had three of his own breed
behind him Hard to say which corner
looked the more dangerous for a lonely
man tomeet on a dark evening
Time and they rushed together The
cop swung wild forgetting that his reach
was shortened by the absence of the club
Bing and the tough guy drove an awful
right to the coppers nose Break a
nightstick on me will you you son of
mudhen be hissed and crossed his left
to the eye
Public Screams
He had all the round giving the cop
a frightful trimming while the public
screamed for Joy and Roger OMara
raved in the corner The second round
was the same Biff Jab swing hook
jolt crossthe tough guy never missed
and the copper looked like 8 cents worth
of cats meat with tabasco poured on it
Do this do that roared OMara and
the copper heeding his chief managed to
weather the storm He was nearly
through though and when the gong rang
i for the third round OMara told him to
make a last rush carry the tough guy
to the ropes and win or lose In a hurry
The copper plunged In and forced the
tough citizen to the ropes He swung and
missed his left and then as the other fel
low tried to sidestepjgaashed the right
like a pile driver on CHpaw The tough
man fell with heavy IBma
Now ye fourflraffln fardown
shrieked the cop did rBck ye Can 1
lick ye without a club I want to know
OMara was frantic with delight but
he never lost his head About six of the
other entries in the tourney figured on
getting a whack at the cop on the next
night of the affair and the cop was all
set for more glory But OMara got to
him the next day Ye will do no fightin
tonight said OMara Ye will put on
your little uniform and take up your
little stick an go back to poundin the
beat TU nothln remarkable ye have
done and if I hadnt coached ye yed
have been knocked silly and made a joke
of the whole department On yer way
now ye will do no fightin the night
But it was great fun while it lasted

papers that there was a suspicion that
the big fellows had agreed to spilt up thi

That 1 not right continued the big

nor am I starting now I am sincere when
I say that I want to knock Johnsons
head off when we get in the ring and I
am going to do I too In e doing I ex
pect to pull down th big end of the
purse I he is the better man the big
en goes to him but I do not like stories
started about our faking it
Th Intimation is absurd a I is ma
licious continued Jeffries There is nO
reason why either Johnson or myself
should stoop to this sort of work No
matter who wine or gets beaten in the
coming tight he wU want to live after
that perhaps may want to make some
money but If I were proven that them
had been any sort of a frameup that
would certainly kill us both e far as
the public is concerned I should at

the ground he walks on that I consider
him accident in the

worst beating ever given any man in the

As the Washington eleven is a very

St Louis we feel very Jubilant over the

while we were forced t offset this by
the new g We m a strong de
fense being held inside the Washington

game and as the northwestern critics

Washburn university South Dakota
Wab ulTt
Golden Miners Haakeil Indians Nebras
k Colorado College an Washington
meeting defeat only at the hands of the
Indians and Nebraska
The Nebraska game w lost by on
point and on a questionable decision at
that Upon appeal t th football au
thorities we found that the Nebraska
score was made after the ball was out
of play according to th rlM
As we are in the Colorado conference
we live up to the freshman rule which
bars freshmen Even in our outside
games we live up to this rule which
acts as a handicap
We would have liked to meet Utah
this year but a the first date advanced
by Utah November 13 was held by us
for Nebraska we could not then com
to terms After that when we found
that the Nebraska game was later we
could not arrange a date with Utah

Why I will b easy said he All
this talk about my being in danger of
being whipped I fail to see
I could get ready in thirty days if it

around He showed a disposition to b
very meek when we met to sign articles
though I a told that when I a not
about he I very frisky Since Johnson
started trying to get a match with me
we have met several times I have never

opinion Not that I say that Jtfiris
