Oakland Jan 11Wltb the holi
days over and tho year that Is to bring
the pugilistic fan tho most Important
fistic encounter of all time fairly opon
cd the fans are beginning to become
more than over enthused over Jeffries
chanccr of heating Jock Johnson
Fact It tho fans ore so Interested in
the big fellow that his every moo IK I
being watched with the keenest Inter
est and the least indication of loss of
condition or regaining of condition is I
Yesterday Jeffries announced that
at the conclusion of his theatrical I
tour which is to end the 18th of next
month he will go to his home at Los
Angeles and take a rest prior to going
Into training His plans boiled down
mean that he will take a short rest a
trip to the mountains then put In
four months at tho training camp
From the very beginning those who I
know Jeffries best have maintained
that he would make a trip to tho
mountains before he would go Into his
active training and In verifying their
forecast as to the manner In which ho
will start the final preparation for tho
big scrap the fans feel that the big
fellow lb doing just the very thing
that will result In pulling him in the I
host at rnnHltlrm
Will Not Overtrain
To me the ono remark that Jef I
frlel mde that stands out above all I
others for real common sense is that
he will endeavor to keep from over
training This overtraining thing Is
nothing new to Jeffries and it will
require a great deal of argument on
tho part of his training staff to keep I
the gIant from repeating the very
thing that several times sont him in
to the ring in none too good condition
The work so far done by Jeffries has
been reducing exercises such as
sprints on the road JumpIng ropo and
punching tho bag Tho big follow has
done little of the upbuilding exer
cises planned for him and for that
reason he Is not the perfection of en
durance and strength which he ex
pects to bo when he steps Into the
ring with John Arthur Johnson
Tho first step In that direction will
bo the trip to the mountains and there
tho big follow will get close to nature
and with his long tramps In quest of
game and his continual outdoor life
should come away with a world of
strength and lasting power
To be with Jeffries In the moun
tains Ir a thing of torture for the or
dinary man Jeffries Is the most per
sistent mountain climber and hunter
for game that this state boosts and
tho manner in which ho will leave
camp at an early hour In the morn
ing and wander about all day without
a mouthful of food Is simply wonder
Jeffries starts out and has his mind
KO strongly centered on tho game that
he really forgets all about where he Is I
going and how far he has left the
camp behind than when the time
comeR to return ho generally finds
himself BO far away that it takes him
until dark to get hack
Trip Should Tell Talo
Tho writer has seen many a man
start out with the big fellow on a
hunt aud come back before half the
distance had been covered The moun
tain trip will tell the talc as to wheth
er or not the big man Is to get Into
condition again for If he Is to attain
thQ condition to battle with such a
worthy opponent as Jack Johnson he
will have to show It on his return
from the hunt
Tho weightreducing Is all bosh In
sofar as the actual condition of Jof
fries Is concerned and there are a
number of his most ardent admirers
who would be more strongly impress
ed with his chances for condition if
I ho left for the hunting trip with plen
ty of waste flesh to work off
One more very Important thing was
announced by the big fellow that
comos as quite a surprise He says
that he will have with him tho big
gest and best sparring partners that
he can secure and will have thom
protected with pneumatic pads In such
a manner that he will bo able to
slug away with all biB force behind
oach blow
Will Do Hard Boxing
For my part 1 would noticaro to
take the position no matter how flat
terlnp financially the offer might be
But thor are any number of men In
l the country who would jump at the I
chnce to work with Jeffries and ho l
will no doubt be ablo to get all the
boxing he needs
If Jeffries sticks to his plan it will
be the fIrst time In all his training
that ho has boxed to amount to any
thing and It will be tho first timo
that he has over crowded his spar
ring partners With four months of
he continual slugging In his training
camp Ifcffrles may round to into con
dition wihout taking on a fight or so
prior to the big event although the
general impression of the knowing
fan is to the effect that Jeffries would
be the better by beating a few sec
ond rate pugs prior to the Johnson
Sorao six months ago the writer said
that the history of athletics failed to
reveal one man who has ever made
the heroic effort to regain a lost con
dition that Jeffries has and tho more
we read of his work the stronger we
are Impressed with the Idea that he
may break all past performances as to
coming back to a former condition af
ter such a long layoff

The closing hours of the fortysixth
annual convention of the National
Wool Growers Association were as
tempestuous as a storm at sea Not
withstanding that the convention was
among the most successful conven
tions ever held In the history of the
association more business having I
been done and better results ob I
The tempest of the last few hours
of the convention Saturday afternoon
was brought about through the charge I
of insubordination made by President
Goodlng against Secretary George I
Walker It wasn personal matter I
largely hut was taken to the floor of
the convention where It had to be J
threshed out The storm had been
brewing during the entire time of f
the convention and It was plain to
be seen that It would burst forth In
all Its fury when the time came for
the election ot officers It was very
certain that both Gooding and Walk
er would be candidates for reelec
tion to the offices they had held for
the past year When It came It
was a battle royal many heated
words were spoken and perhaps
some hard feelings were engendered
The line of demarkation was clear I
ly drawn across the convention hall I
the adherents of Gooding one one I
side and the advocates of the cause of
Walker on the other It could not
bo said tobo a question ff compe
tency or Incompetency on the part
of either Gooding or Walker nor was
It a question of popularity before the I
convention between the two men I
Both were really the choice of the j
convention all the time for the re j
spective places but it seems that
President Goodingdesired the conven I
LIon to any when does a president of J
the Wool Growers Association really
become presldcntivitli all the powers
and dignity of the ofllce In other
words Who is It the president or
the secretary
Somo line during the year Presi
dent Goodlng had called on Secretary
Walker to come to Shoshone Idaho to
attend to business meetings connect
ed with the association and Mr
Walker had written him that he was
not yet a hired man to be cathauled
around at the beck and call of any
one This angcreH the president and
the Idea began tddreep into his mind I
that Walker was trying to be the
whole thing If that were true time I
president contended that there should
he something dorte by the convention
to determine whether the president I
had any powers and whether at any
time he had control of the offices and I
the officers supposed to be under him
In the discussion on this question I
many bitter words were uttered and
the lie passed number of times It
reallv looked at one time that the I
breach could not be covered and that
an adjourned lslbn would have to I
bo called to settle the matter But
wiser counsel filially prevailed and
the contention was amicably set
It was supposed that the two men
had settled their petty differences
the night before in a personal con
ference but It broke out anew In the
convention hall The old sore was
opened no doubt when the commit
lee on bylaws recommended an
amendment to tho effect that the sec
retary should ho selected by a board
of control consisting of five per
sons with the approval of the presi
dent This aroused the suspicions of
tho Walker men they Immediately I
concluding that a little sharp prac
tice was being attempted against 1
them They rallied their forces and I
fought the proposed amendment I

ExGovernor Gooding of Idaho
brother of the president of tho asso
don championed his DroUiers cause
This added fuel to the fire and the
fight was on The exgovernor con
tended that there must of necessity
bo a change In the bylaws of the as
sociation In order to protect the office
of president by giving him power to
control It and to hold tho officers un
der him In some form of subjection
If this wero not done ho said chaos
would prevail and the power for good
of the organization would be lost
Explanations on tho part of the
two officers wore forthcoming In the
heated debate which were to the ef
fect that the trouble after all arose
through a misunderstanding of each
other and that both were willing to
make amends If it wero deemed ne
cessary Both Mr Gooding and Mr
Walker advised tho convention that
they did not care to servo the asso
ciation If It would bring about dis
cord and that they thought the ap
ple of discord had been thrown Into
tho convention inadvertently and was
not of enough moment to quibble over
The amendments were finally adopt
ed with some modifications one of
them being that the selection of the
secretary should be by the executive
committee consisting of seven per
sons rather than live This was
considered a victory for Walker but
the greatest victory for him was In
tho adoption of a resolution to the ef
fect that the executive committee
should select Mr Walker as tho sec
retary Immediately after the ad
journment of the convention the com
mittee met and selected Mr Walker
as their secretary and Mr Penwoll
as treasurer
The convention over tho delegates
devoted themselves to the fnsllvlllea
and pleasure arranged by the enter
tainment committee Thereafter par
ties dancing boxing contests and
many other forms of amusement were
tho order of the evening and so great
was the Joy the small hours dawned
before all had retired Many of the
delegates left the city Saturday even
ing because of pressing business at
their homes and the urgent necessity
for them to get back to their flockn
on the range
A pretty feature of Saturday nights
hospitality of the city was tho opening
of all the club rooms or the town to
the visitors and the rendition of ap
propriate programs The Weber and
tho Elks club rooms were crowded
to overflowing during the entire even
ing and interesting hours were spent
in both places
The visiting flockmaslers with ono
accord proclaimed the convention tho
best that had beon held and they
were lavish In their praises of Ogden
tho lcoplo and all the committees
who had in hand the handling of tho
affair No complaints were hoard from
any quarter that the sheepmen had
been overcharged for accommoda
tions except in Qte or two Instances
It was reported that rooming house
keepers had overcharged This mat
tor was not reported to the hotel
committee until Saturday night or
It would have been corrected by hay
ing the overcharges refunded
The convention has cost something
in the neighborhood of 0000 and It
Is estimated that fully SIOOOOO were
spent In the city by the visitors So
that tho board of control feel hat
the 56000 was well spent from t
monetary point of view and that un
told good will come to tho city by
virtue of the advertising of Ogden In
all parts of the United States and
in the establishment of a clean re
cord as a convention city
The committeemen worked like Tro
jans to accomplish the work In hand
and their efforts were crowned with
success President Pingree of the
board of control and President Hey
wood of tho Weber club are well
pleased with the results
The sheep show was a decided suc
cess and was really about tho only
revenuegetter for the finance com
mittee In every other respect It was
pronounced by the sheepmen who ex
I hibited their sheep and by those who
wero only spectators the best show
of Its kind ever held in the United
States To President Herrington and
I Secretary Richards much credit Is due
for the manner in which they con
ducted the show and the congenially
in which they transacted business
with the sheep owners
It was said by the exhibitors that
they had never seen a show handled
better than was the Ogdcn show
I They were unstinted In their praise
of Ogden and her people many of
them making the statement thai Og

firmation of the genuineness of the
Jarbrldgo gold discoveries came In
further today when R Waring of
Burley arrived with samples of a re
cent strlko he made five miles above
the camp which Is clustornd around
tho original Bourne discoveries and
where Waring disclosed at olght feet

class of potzlte He has the fifth
property that shows In a vein of about
four and onehalf feet lying beside

which cut the country from north

proof has been established alflo that
that the ore Is of tellurium charac

camples from all the prospects which
are considered already in the cate
gory of producers

mont larbrldgo company which took
over tho second big strike made In tho
district and the Interests In which
arc principally held among the bank
ers and merchants of this city after
Inquiring of the smelters in Salt Lake
concludes that Tarbridgo ban four
properties already capable of shipping
crude ores of 100 grade providing
road facilities were available which
would leave large tonnages of concen
trating ores worth an average of 13
per ton The higher grades average
around GOO and It has already boon
demonatraled by the investigations
mado by Mr Stevens who Is an ex
perienced mine operator as well as
an expert whose judgment Is highly
regarded on the coast and In Nevada
among large mine Investors that by
running the higher with the lower
grades the district will begin to pro
duce on a very profitable basis just
as soon as roads are built suitable
for wagon traffic to the railroad tor
mlnal of Rogersou near this city
The ease with which prospectors are
enabled to locale the ore shoots along
tho dykes time perfect similarity of
all the ores and the knowledge that
it is almost useless to seek values
anywhere except In the vicinity of the
dykes have made the prospecting of
the region comparatively sure of re
