In every instance reductions In the

on freight classes and
from eastern points of origin be
cause they were required to pay the
Pacific coast terminal rates plus the
local rates back to Spokano from

I was discharged at Spokane by the
railroads on the western trip
Substantially the same state of af

Championship Battle Is
Not to Be an Un
limited One
Rono Nev June 20 Promoter Tex
Richard is not greatly concerned over
the momentous lolo hr Is to play on
the afternoon of the Fourth and he
asserts with convincing earneatnesj
that ho has no misgivings whatever
regarding his ability to referee the
big fight
Why I havent given the subject
a single thought he told a group of
newspapermen last night The job
wll be a snap With seasoned fight
ers like Jeffries and Johnson to deal
with it will be the easiest thing In
the world to take care of the referees
end I have been assured by both
men that they are entirely satisfied
t have me In the ring and lat they
will do everything they can to smooth
mv way
Some one asked him If be bad ever
presided over a big ring event before
Nothing very big the promoter
answered but dont think for a min
I ute that Im not wIse to every angle
of prize fighting Ie followed It
practically I my life and if Iher is
anybody that knows any morn than I
do about the ins and outs of the am
Id like to have him named People
come to me and say Im foolish lo
take on th8 Job because Ive not bad
enough practice Well they dont
know what theyre talking about If a
man knows fighting ns well l I know
It theres no reason why he cIt
I jump in and take charge of a big tight
I even If be hasnt had much act ml
training As far as I am personally
concerned I dont believe In working
up as a referee through little fights
to big ones Id rather begin a the
And then work down was inc
Jesting amendment of a bystander
but Tex though he laughed with the
crowddid not seem to catch the point
of the joke and be nodded assent
There are man however who de
clare that the appoIntment of Rick
avd was a mistake owiiiR to his ad
mitted Inexperience n an arbiter ot
important contests Even his critics
I though they appear to be satisfied that
when ho enters the ring anti assumes
I supreme charge pf the battle the pro
motoV Will do the right thins as he
SMS it and will ondeaxrr to give each
tift1iI contestants the squarest of
square deals
Gradually preparations for tbe fight
are ncailiiK completion and by the
end of the week probably nothing es
sential will remain to be done Re
senlal wi
mai liable progress made on the con
struction ot the arena bas silenced
the doleful predictions pessimistic
fans who wore fearful lthat the fiuso
structure would not be finished on
time and It has banished all doubt of
there not being an ample number of
scats for the crowds expected to pour
into Reno between now and the day
of the fight
Great care is being exercised by
the contractors against the danger 01 f
fire and three night watchmen were
appointed at the commencement of Iho
work principally lot the purpose of
guaiding against tramps whose care
lessness with matches might prove
disastrous This fear of a conflagra
tion has weighed heavIly on Rtckard
and last night he made 1 trip to thu
site to assure himself that the neces
sary precautions were being taken
On enterIng the enclosure be was
disconcerted by the fact that no sign
of a patrol was vsible For five min
utes or more he stumbled about tho
plankstiewn arena and almost fell
over a watchman peacefully slum
bering on a bed of boards Search
disclosed the other two likewise en
Joying calm repose RIckard promptly
discharged all three and with much
energy hunted aioaud until he found
another trio to take their places
The gloves to be worn by the fight
ers aro expected to arrive on the
ovonlng train from San Francisco
Two pairs have been made especially
to the order of erich contestant care
ful nsnrrMiinnts of the hands and
I po
wrists o the men havoifj been taken
There was much rejoicing it Jack
Johnsons camp lust night as a result

the boxing platform I
Contrary to the usual sparring 9 > s

weeks tbe champion did not place
himself wholly on the defensive yes I

twelve fast rounds that constituted
the workout the negro was still
breathing lightly and though he was
perspiring freely there was no Indi

whose good will ban been regarded aa f
so essential to the holing of the
contest out of which Jeffries will

tunity to see him box
A rumor that has boon afloat bore
for several Uays was given a quietus
by RIckard today when bo asserted
with much vigor that the plan of tak
