ter of Instruction to Attorney General
U S Webb the governor expressed
his disapproval of prize fighting hi I

Supreme Court Must Define a Fight
S Tho letter declares that the sit
S pronto court of California has never
defined a prize fight and suggests an I
opportunity be given It to do so This
Is talcco to Indicate the governors in
Mention to press hrs opposition to the
end wbjle the status of the Jeffries

dition tonight the sporting fraternity
IB much cast down artd It is gener
ally bdlltned that the death knell of
prlzo lighting In California the nice I
ca of prize fighters according to the
governors loiter has been sounded
This Is Kirne out by tho fact that tho
governor telegraphed to Attorney Gen
eral Webb later In the day to take
Minllar action In the matter of tho
fight between Sam Langford and Al
Kaufmanj which wfut to have been
fought hew next Saturday
r Promoter Surprised
Promoters Tllckard and Gleason of
the big Ajjht were completely taken
by surprise They had heard no whis
per of tho gOVOrnOrR Intended action
When tho news reached him Rlcknrd
rushed to tho office of General Webb
and asked what that ofllclal proposed
to do After conference with Webb
Richard said that he believed tho
fight would be held in San Francisco
nnd on tho advertised date despite
tho governors orders Ho said that
he could not say positively what ho
would do until Webb handed down an
opinion Yot Illckard has no Intention

Opinion Without Delay
lUckard said Quit Webb had prom
Isoil him because of the groat ox
ponse under which the promoters have
boon In erecting the arena and olhex
matters connected with the fight that
his opinion would be forthcoming
without delay Rickard expects It
within two days In the meantime
ho said he would make ready to takes
S the fight to Nevada or Utah If com
p ppllftd to do so
I Just what will be the nature of tho
logal proceedings Instituted bv the at1
torncy general In not known The gov I
neroru lettor Is positive In directing
that the courts be asked to Intervene I
and urges a definition of prlzo fighting
by tho Buproruo court Because of
this It Is believed that Webb will I
apply for a writ of mandamus beforo
the states highest tribunal thus
bringing all parties before that body
for a hearing and securing a tem
porary writ of Injunction pending a
decision By this stop he would avoid
delay since tho promoters would have

District Attorney Displays Bitterness

of whom is nindu by the governor
displayed some bitterness when asked
for a statomont Ho said that tho
stale o ecutlvo had hooded the clam
or of tho mob anl made satirical ref
erences to political capital
However ho concluded I still
hollovo that tho light will be hold
here as thecourts are more powerful
than the sovernor
Socking a reason for the action of
Governor Glllott following an It does
Ills own repeated declaration that he
did not believe the light could be pre
vented and did not propose to begin
p useless opposition many think that
pressure was brought to bear upon
him from Washington that tho
stales representatives at the national
capital have Informed him that the
holding of the fight was standing in
the way of San Franciscos effort to
secure national legislation In favor of
the Panama Pacific exposition This
belief was strengthened a message
received from Washington by Presi

condition Is said to exist at the capi
tol was sent by Representative Pen
net of Now York ton days ago but
was not nmdc public until fOlIar

Jeffries Refuses to Believe the Story
at All
BBN LOMOND Calif June 13
The jQffrles camp was In an uproar
this afternoon as a result of Gov
ernor QHlctts orders to stop the big
fight When Jeffries was Informed
that the governor had Instructed the
nltornoy general to take steps to pro
vent the fight ho froze up and re
fused to discuss the matter but later
he made the following statement
J positively refuse to believe tho
story I do not care what Is said or
who talked to tho governor over the
telephone I simply will not believe
that Is true I do not know much
about law but my understanding Is
11l10t we are within the law and pro
tected by it All the articles of agree
ment signed by Johnson and no self
were the same as have been signed
for every fight fought In California
Glllett once said that he could not
stop the fight so how Is ho going
to do It I will continue with mv
training Until I am Informed by the
promoters that the affair cannot come
This was the extent of the former
champions discussion ot tho news
Ho became so taciturn that It was
Impossible to got another word out
of him
Jim Corbett Thunderstruck
Jim Corbett was thunderstruck but
when he heard that the governor had
personally vouched for the story over
tho longdistance phone he said
I guess it is true all right but Il
ls mighty hard to believe You must
admit that Glllett does not seem to
be tho sort of man who would lot
the promoters go to all the expense
they have and then throw them down
Look at us fellows who traveled all
the may across tho continent spend
ing our Unto and money It seems
more lute cruelty to me than Injus
tice It Is safe to say that Jeffries Is
the lOast porturbed man In tho camp
as tho result of tho latest crash In
ho plans for the fight The entire
camp Including friends and trainers
Stood around In little groups discuss
ing vhat thc considered u calamity I
of tho first magnitude None of thorn
could understand why time governor
took steps towards tho suppression
of this light after permitting the ar
rangements for it to proceed so far
While tho camp was still boiling
with Indignation over the governors
Instructions to his attorney general
a newspaper man seeking Jeffries to
ask him in regard to the reported
movement to Salt Lake City found
him blissfully slumbering lu n tent
cot on tho porch of his little cottage
Jeffries refused to state whether he
would take tho j > romotors 10000 for
forfeit In the event of their being un
able to pull off the big contest
In Favor or Salt Lake
A considerable element of the pop
ulation would welcome tho Jeffries
Johnson fight to this city butthe ob
stacles are believed to be insuper
able Governor Spry declared repeat
cdl > when Promoter Rickard was
seeking to stage the contest In Utah
that the laws of tho state distinctly
prohibited such a meeting as that
proposed and that ho would uae his
authority to enforce the lawb County
Attorney Lyon of Salt Lake county
made the statement that the statute
wag unequivocal and that his office
would takt whatever legal stcpp were
necessary to stop the light here nick
ard was finally convinced that nego
tlntlons wore useless and explained
that the transfer to San Francisco
was made because no guarantee could

bout Johnson lift Kaufman as many
times as ho wished to and after their
