LIVELY DAY

edSunday Was Like
a Circus Day
Reno June 2iTho lost week of
preparation for the Fourth of July
struggle for supremacy between Jim
Jeffries and Jack Johnson opened In
Reno without any of the excitement
which marked Its Immediate prede
cessor Such work was dono on the
arena yesterday nnd today that Its
completion In time for tho fight Is
certain both fighters arc In splendid
trim and showing no sign of their
sudden change from sea level to a
high altitude and everything connect
Id with the gretest sporting event of
this or any other ago is moving
along In a thorough satisfactory way
Swinging himself on to the boxing
platform at Mona Springs shortly af
ter S oclock this morning Jim Jet
fries plunged Into eleven rounds of
continuous boxing alternating with
ChoyiiBki Corbctt Armstrong and
Berger and followed up with two
rounds of tugging and hauling around
the ring with Fanner Burns It was
a fast furious struggle
Reno Ner June jrhc sun iu
hot at Reno Itg torrid rays beat
down on the Sierras hero with almost
Iho African intensity that browned
the skins of Jack Josnsons progeni
tors Also there Is dust It lies thick
nnd finely powdered on tho roads that
lend to tjio rival fight camps and a
procession of plunging automobiles
constantly Journeying lo and dfrq
churns whirling to mingle with tho
MHO haze of tho encircling hills
But neither heat nor dust seems tq
he troubling either the black glantor
the white giant who this day week are
to meet In a conflict that has rivet
eil orJdwIdc attention and Is luring I

Yesterday was a strange Sabbath
It Was like circus day In an aver
ISO American town but there were
two show grounds the camps of the
lighters That of Jeffries being on a
car Hue and therefore accessible to
the pleasure seeking multitudes drew
much the larger crowd and from ear I
ly morning until dusk heterogeneous
gatherings thronged the treesha led
lawns and resorts of Moaua Spiing
ayd made merry No one scorned I
groat j disappointed that Jeffries wag
not risible All wore content to be
merely an Integral part of a gay and
carefree assembly
On the porch of a refreshment pa
vilion a man played a piano and flans

Out at Johnsons camp the main
attraction of the day was the boxing
bouts in which the big negro en
gaged with Al Kaufman and Walter I

MANY POLICEMEN ON DUTY
New York Juno 2TThC narrow

I and every precaution was taken by
I tho authorities to see that the sud
den renewal of long worlaro which
I
resulted yesterday in the death of
one and tho fatal Injury of another
Was not allowod to spread further
Eight men aro under arrest in con
nection with yesterdays battle
The battle 60 far as the police can
lenrn was a continuation of the fend
between the Four Brothers society
nnd the Ong Leong TongK which
arose a fow months ago as a result
of a quarrel over Bowgum a little
Chinese slave girl Tho loud bas thus
far resulted In thirtyseven lives
The story of Bow um whose name
means purse of gold Is not unlike
that of Helen of Troy Silo was stol
en from the Four Brothers In San
Francisco brought to New York by a
man who sought the protection of the
Ong Lccngs and finally murdered by
her original owners Tho feud spread
to Philadelphia Boston and other
cities and took on such an aspect
that even tho Chinese government
I through Its minister at Washington
I was moved to Intervene with tho
I hopes of having peace
The story as told by the police
here begins In San Francisco Bow
g ms price had been high in the
Orient and her owner has refused of
fers by the wholesale for nor See
ing she could not ho acquired by tho
ordinary methods Chlng Jlng adopt

the girl was being held as a slave

New York whore ho became a mem
ber of tho Ong Leong Tong Then
suddenly ono August morning Bow
Gum was found In her bed murdered
A Tong succession of battles fol
