Champion Contest Will
Be Held in Salt Lake
or San Francisco
Now York Dec 211ho worlds
championship fight between James J
Jeffries and Jack Johnson will be
held IiTSan Francisco before a club
organized by Tex RIckard o Ely
Novaud Jack Gleas n tho fightfiT
take place probably on July I 1910
Tho bid made by Ricknrd and Glea
son of a purSe of 5101000 and the
contestants to take 6623 per cent of
the moving picture receipts was ac
cepted by representatives of n
and Jeffries this afternoon
The successful bid provides that
the fight shall take placo in Califor
nia Utah or Nevada on a dalo to lIe
selected later but it wag stated that
without doubt the contest would take
placo in San Francisco
In view of the fact that James Cot
froth manager of the Sunshine Ath
letic cljib at Colma Cal controls cer
tain patents on moving pictures It
was ilibughl Illckard and Gleason
would likely enter Into somo arrange
ment with him whereby they could
hare ho fight take place In the Col
ma arena
San Francisco Doc 21he news
that tho JeffriesJohnson worlds
championship fight would be held In
San Francisco although not unex
pected has caused keen satisfaction
among every ring follower in this
city Already speculation Is rife as
to the location of the battleground
and the consensus of opinion inclines
to the belief that tho contest will be
pulled off in territory other than the
city proper but Immediately adja
The laws of California permit fin
ish fights but contests within the
city are so regulated by the muni
I cipal authorities that only twenty
round exhibitions can ho glvon There
IK ground for belief however that
owing to the tremendous Importance
of the battle pressure may be
brought to bear by tho Richard
Gluasou combination with tho Incom
ing administration to waive all re
strictions and grant permission to the
promoters to hold an unlimited con
teat In Ihe city of San Francisco In
such nn event It Is generally under I
stood that the ball ground park of
tho Pacific Coast Baseball league
located on Valencia street neai
Fourteenth will be the scene of tho
bottle as the grounds are controlled
by John J Glenaon The seating ca
pacity can be enlarged so as to ac
commodate approximately 20000 or
216000 persOns
On the other hand thor IK an un
dorcurroul of opinion that nn alliance
hu boon effected with James J Col
froth in which circumstance It Ig al
most certain that tho fight will be
taken to Coffrolug Mission street

New York Doc 2ln anticipation
of the definite announcement of when
and where tho JeffriesJohnson heavy
weight championship fight will be
held a crowd of sportingmcn again
assembled at Hobokon N J today
But the fact that Jeffries had gone
to Buffalo and would not appear
dampened the second days ardor of
many and the crowds which filled the
streets yesterday were thinned to
I was not at the opening of the
bids said Jeffries before leaving the
city because I only want to meet
Johnson once more and that Is In the
ring And that will be the last time
1 will see him
Before the final announcement of
the successful bidder for the fight
all of the promoters and sporting men
generally were of the opinion that
Tex Rickard of Nevada In conjunc
tion with John 1 Glcaaon of Califor
nia would be the winner by his bid
of a purse of 101000 cath and two
thirds of the moving picture proceeds
Other bids were considered better
by some particularly lhal or Tom
McCarey of Los Angeles bul the
control of the moving picture patents
bt Jimmy Coffroth and the triple al
liance of RIckard Gleason and Colt
roth was too strong for outsiders like
McCarey and Eddie Graney
Richard said today that Coffroth
had offered to bet him 1000 that he
RIckard would get the fight Cot
roth sent a message to San Francisco
last night declaring that Richard had
been awarded the fight and Coffroth
is considered the best authority here
