SilENT ON FIGHT

By Eddie Smith
Oakland Jan HFTom all sections
I
of the United States and from sonio
of the larger cities of the foreign I
countries have come requests to an
I Oakland man for his opinion on tho
coming JeffriesJohnson championship
contest which It Is presumed will ho
st < Jsed on the coming Fourth of July
in some section of California and
that section near the city of San
Francisco
This Oakland man is supposed to
and does no doubt know more about
Jeffries than any other man in the
country ever He is none other than
Billy Delaney maker of champions
and veteran trainer of high class box
ers Vhat his man Delaney docs
not know about the heavyweight fight
ers who have held the front ranks of
pugilism for the past 20 years could
be printed in a very small edition In
fact that which he does not know is
not worth knowing
It IB not passing strange therefore
that the people of tho outside world
should be eager to know just what
this man thinks of tho chances of Jim
Jeffries In the coming light with Jack
Johnson It was Delaney who made
It possible for Jeffries to become tho
champion of all champlonn and it is
Dolanoy that many of the friends of
Jeffries will try to have In his corner
the afternoon the big fellow faces
John Arthur Johnson of Galveston

Tho veteran will In all probability

not be In the corner of Jeffries and
It is dollars to doughnuts that Delaney
I
laney will not even see the big fel
low prior to his stepping into the gins
for the most Important contest of his
I career Sad It Ifi that Delaney and
Jeffrie1 Imvo come to the conclusion
j that one ciu get along without the
othor for put this pair together and
they alp hard to heat The disagree
ment between Billy and Jim is one
that Is ontliply their own business
however and oven though the friends I
of both men have often felt that hey
would like to patch up their little
troubles they have hesitated about In
terfering in business that is not their
own
In this later day of uptodato news
paper work Delaney could gather in a
small fortune by visiting tho camps I
of tho principals and giving his opin I
ion on the outcome of the battle but I
Billy will not do this and he Is very
conservative about giving out any
opinion as to which of the big men
will be returned the winner
Way down deep In the heart of tho
veteran trainer he Is of the opinion
that Jorlrles cannot got back to his
oldtime condition but he will nol
say ns much and he Is not going to
have It posted on the sign boards
about town All one can get from DP
lanev Is that which would prove unin
teresting reading He might give a
private opinion to soma of his friends
hut he pledges the receiver of such
information to secrecy and that means
the opinion Is not for publication
After having talked with Delaney
for many hours at different times dur
ing the past few months the writer
has come to the conclusion that De
laney Is In no wise prejudiced In his
selection of the probable winker of
the coming contest through any feel
ing Unit might exist between himself
and Jofrries but his strong belief In
the islim chances of Jeffries getting
I
back to his oldtime form has led the
old tlner to believe loll has taken
a task upon himself that he will find
u very tough one
Suspects He Favors Johnson
Dolaney was with Jeffries many
years and knows the big fellows hab
its well and his strong and weak
points as well as it Is possible for one
man to know another and it would
mean a great boost to the Johnson end
of the fight if ho would positively de
clare himself for the black man This
he will not do however and the fans
must listen and wait for further In
formation before any one will know
whether or not Delaney believes Jef
fries will In beaten
Tho suspicion exists among his
friends that the veteran favors the
black man but how strong no one
can tell Delaney does not agree with
many of the experts who have said
that Johnson is not a highclass fight I
er Billy is and for that matter has
I been for years of the opinion that
Johnson is a great lighter and 0110 I
worthy of the best efforts of any man
the game ever knew in an exchange
of arms
The wonderful strength and clover
ness of the black man as well as his
great endurance and cool head bass
caused this feeling and the fact that
Johnson hits boon overly cautious at
111105 has not been taken br Delaney
as all indication of the black man be
ing vellow
Dilly I y rather caution himself ami
he rather likes thc miin who will back
away Ahen stung and come back af
ter the effects have worn off Johnson
has backed away lots of times when I
slung but has always boon a trifle
slow In coming back for more This II
I fact has not kept Delaney from be
lieving that the black mnn IB a great
fishier however and unless the tel I
trati bus every reason to believe that
Jeffries la In Arst class condition ho
will favor Johnson as a probable win

TSAL T tAKER
SAW THE
FLOOD
Salt Lake Jan 14 Tribune Such
n floor of water I never saw in my
life and I hope I may never sec the
like again I did not believe It pos
I sible that so much havoc could be
wrought by water The speaker was
T H Fitzgerald a wellknown citiz
en of Salt Lake AS ho was talking
to The Tribune Thursday evening
Mr Fitzgerald had just returned home
from Moapa cowing homo via Los
Angeles and San Francisco Contin
uing Mr Fitzgerald said
Tuesday evening Deconrber 2Sth
Dr J M Dart and 1 left Salt Lake
for Moapa to look over the landed
Interests which we arc interested In I
there Tim weather was pleasant
when wo reached Moapa although
from Lyon down to the mouth of the
Meadow Valley wash canyon it was
unusually cold Thursday afternoon a
chlnoolt wind began blowing and Fri
day thoro was considerable water
coming down tho wash
Saturday morning we were at Lo
gan In the lower part of tho Meadow
Valley wash and we started to drive
to Moapu We had a spanking pair of
mules and wo made good time up to
tho wash We stopped at the little
town about noon and wore there ad
vised that a flood wag coming down
tho wash which was a fearful one
and that wo had better taJo to the
hIgh ground
Flood Reaches Moapa
Saturday evening the flood struck
tho region wo were In at Moapa
Tho bight was appalling There was a
wall of water as high as an ordinary
house and It swept everything before
It Nothing could resist tho advance
of that onrushing flood Debris of all
kinds was brought down with tho
floodund the rlghtofwny of the Salt
Lake Route through tho Meadow Val
ley wash was entirely obliterated
There was nothing left of It
When I tell you that there arc box
cars railroad bridges sections of rails
fastened to tho ties that are now
eighteen miles away from where the
railroad track was It will glvo you an
Idea of tho awfulness of tho flood But
these evidences of the flood are seen
and thero can ho no question about It
The railroad Is completely destroyed
for many many miles absolutely
wiped off the earth nothing to in
dicate that thoro over was a track or
roadbed there
Ranches are Ruined
In the lowor valley alfalfa fields
are covered with muck two feet In
depth absolutely ruining the Holds and
deRtroirg all vegetation in tho reg
ion above Logan and St Thomas The
vegetable crop Is ruined The upper
part of tho Meadow Valley Is not hurt
I Tho financial loss will aggregate
millions of dollars and when full re
ports from points up the canyon are
received It will be found that tho loss
of life will bo heavy I saw one
corpse floating down the river but It
was Impossible to rescue H
On the ranch of Joseph Perkes a
hired man and Mr Porkos started on
horseback across the farm to a neigh
bors only a few rods distant and
they were caught by tho flood their
horses drowned and they clung to
trees until rescued later
On the ranch of Mr Wells tho
waves which beat around his home
were over five feet high and a neigh
bor ranchman of Mr Wells had 3000
worth of cattle drowned The Cannon
Brothers of Salt Lake who own a
ranch along the river had 100 head of
hogs swept away
Stocl Bridges Bond Like Reeds
Tho steel bridges which the rail
road has constructed and which It
was believed would withstand almost
anything were picked up and tossed
about like feathers and were twisted
and bent as easily as if they had been
wire
Last year there was shipped from
Moapa ISC cars of cantaloupes and 60
car loads of lettuce and asparagus
and other garden truck This year
none will be shipped for thero will
be no way to get out Just now in
the upper valley thoro was no dam
age done there are tons of aspara
gus now about ready for market and
In a week or two lettuce will bo
I
ready but It will have to bo thrown
away as thero Is no way to ship It
out nor will thoro bo for some time
I toll you that Salt Lake people do
not realize what a great calamity to
Salt Lake City is the destruction of
the Salt Lake road through the wash
Drove Fifty Miles
Tim doctor and I drove from Mo
apa to Las Vegas a distance of fifty
miles All along the Meadow river Is
scattered the wreckago of tho flood
People who have lived In that region
for years cannot recall anything lllto
this flood In fact It Is believe that
nothing like It was over known be
fore
There are a great many people In
the lower valley farmers and ranch
men who are absolutely ruined by
the flood
The Salt Lake Route will never
again be constructed through tho Mea
i dow Valley waali canyon There is
no likelihood of another flood like
this one sweeping tho canyon In many
years to come and yet a quick thaw
like the one of December 31 and Jan
uary 1 might cause another equally as
great as thlc No one of course can
tell but the fall of snow packed down
In the range Is greater than ever be
fore known
We came homo from Los Vegas In
a roundabout way using the Tonopah
t Tidewater railway pnrt of the way
the Salt Lako Route part of the way
and then the Southern Pacific from
Los Angeles to San Francisco and
thence to Salt Lako
Was Terrible Experience
While It was an experience It was
tho kind of an experience I novel
want to go through again The roar
of that awful wall of water which we
could hear when it was ten miles
away I shall never forget And when
tho wave camo In night It was appall
ing It cannot be described Yes I
am glad to got home
