Proposed Legislation Alarms the Fight Promoters
R. A. Smyth
The latest advices from Sacramento
Indicate that the proposed legislation
ngainst boxing is in a fair way of
becoming a law. which' means the rr.<l
of the garu«> here for some years at
least. Henator Hartman. who has made
the antiboxlng law his pet measure,
says he has twenty-eight votes pledged
to his measure. He nopds but twenty
two. He has been trading industrious
ly to roll up this number.
Hartman makes no secret of the fact
that ho is not urging the passage* of
the prohibitive measure on high moral
grounds, \u25a0 but to punish some of the
promoters for fancied slights. Another
thing wjiicli is rankling him is the
fact that he ferls he saved the day
for th«» boxing game in the last ses
sion of the Legislature nnd was given
no credit for the work he did in the
Assembly at that time. *
The mm interested in keeping the.
game going are not as well organized
as they were on the former occasion
and are thus unable to do as effective
wcrk as they did when their ppt pas
time was menaced at /the last session
of the Legislature. Th« bill is in the
hands of a committee at the present
time and will not come up for a vote
for some two weeks. The \u25a0claim .Is
made that the bill is weak in one par
ticular, as it permits of the. so-called
four-round bouts. These have been the
most pernicious in the game, as they
attract undeveloped boys to the ring.
As the bill Is framed these bouts will
continue, the only suoterfuge r^cessst;.
being to sell club membership tickets
instead of ordinary admission tickets.
Although a closed season is immi
nent, the promoters are offering to
mak« matches to be held later on.
Eddie Smith has been empowered by
th« Marysville Club to offer Dick Hy
land and Cyclone Thompson a purpe
of $2000 for a fight in February.
Thompson lias accepted, but Hyland
is holding out, as he wants one of the
matches for which the Nevada men
nre offering such big purses. Billy
Roche is willing to handle the match
at Colma when the weather moderates
sufficiently to permit of people seeing
the light in the San Mateo County pa
vilion with some degree of comfort.
Roche had a talk with Harry Foley
last night and tried to induce him to
consider a match between Joe Thomas
and Billy Rhodes of Kansas City.
Thomas has completed plans for an
other invasion of the East and doe?
not seem inclined to charge his ar
rangements, especially in view of pre
vailing conditions on this coast.
Efforts are being made to induce
Frankie Neil to re-enter the ring. In
addition to the match offered him at
rieno with Jimmy Walsh lie can have
a match with Billy Snailham. Neil
oonrirt^rs that he has had a,ll the glory
that is coming to him in the ring, and
he will not return to it unless there is
n substantial purse in sight. He is
doing well at the Oakland racetrack,
and will not^give up his work there to
take a oliance of fighting before a slim
house. His choice of an opponent i?
Abe Att*»ll. but ho has found It hard
to pin that elusive young man down to
a match
Manager Jim Coffroth has returned
from a week's sojourn at Byron Springs
with Jimmy Britt. He left Britt be
hind, as thp place is agreeing with him.
Tli<> present unsettled weather has
made Goffroth change his plans regard
ing a trip to Nevada. He has post
poned it for a time. As at present ar
ranged Britt will be in Nevada before
the 15th of February, which will give
him a full month of training for his
fight with Gans. Britt surprised Coff
roth by running more than six miles
at one stretch, his new manager check
ing"* off the performance from the seat
of a buggy.
Brltt's present weight is a matter for
speculation, but it is said to be about
the 140-pound mark. Once he settles
down to strict training the \u25a0weight' is
expected to come off readily.
Brttfs old side partner. Charles
(Tiv) Krellng. arrived here yesterday
from London, and St is expected he will
fo arrange his affairs as to be able
to help train the Californian for liis
coming match. Britt always alluded
to Kreling as his "millionaire trainer,"
and they got on famously together.
Both prided themselves upon their skill
as handball players, but by some coin
cidence whenever there was a dinner or
other wager at stake Kreling was al
ways able to win from his opponent.
"When there was nothing at stake Britt
was Invariably the winner. Krefing
would be of great assistance to Britt
in Nevada, as he is a trained athlete
and ran take part in all the condition
ing exercises with Britt.
Eddie Graney had a hard luck story
to tell ycterday. Some sufferer from
the present cold snap walked into the
Tuxedo and when he took his departure
the gas stove with which the sporting
resort has been heated had disappeared
with him. The hot stove circuit was
broken last night, and even Manager
Tom McGrath's cheery 'Happy Days"
seemed a trifle frosty.
The Hawthorne Club will present a
scries of four round bouts in Dream
land Pavilion tonight. Willie Conroy
will meet clever Joe Leahey in the
main event. Battling Johnson and
Matt Kelly are expected to put up a
rough bout, as neither claims any skill
us a boxer. Johnny Murphy, who is
one of the busiest of the limited round
fighters, will try conclusions with
George Sanfanson. Ruddy Moore is
matched against Jack Evans. There
are two minor bouts on the card. \u2666

'"But as battleships are not Intended
to fight singly, their efficiency must
be determined by a comparison of their
relative abilities when fighting in fleet
formation. In this respect a relatively
small squadron of large battleships,
having the same number of heavy guns
as a much larger squadron of small I
battleships, has a still greater natural
advantage, which consists in the abil
ity of the small squadron of large ves^
sels to concentrate on a limited part
of the enemy's line the fire of many
more heavy guns than the ships on that
part of the line are able to return,
which, of course, would result in the
destruction of the entire fleet of £mall

News of Legislature
Regulates Hiring of
School Children '
SACRAMENTO. Jan. 17. — Numerous
bills growing out of the report of the
holdover Assembly committee on edu
cation were introduced In the House
today. One of these measures, offered
by Assemblyman E. K. Strobrldge of
Hayward, provides that school chil
dren may in time of vacation work in
driers and In the fields. Powerful in
terests favored the inclusion of can
neries In the favored list of places of
employment, but the pressure failed of
its object because of the public sen
timent of rural communities against
working children in places where the
sanitary conditions are often unhealth
ful. Another bill by Strobridge for
bids school children from working In
places of amusement, such as theaters,
billiard halls and bowling alleys.
Other bills offered by the same legis
lator made provision for the following
changes in school laws: Entitling high
school graduates to" admission to the
State University without examination;
empowering school trustees and petty
peace officers to arrest truants: pro
viding for the teaching of manual
training and domestic science in pub
lic schools; permitting school libraries
to consolidate with city libraries; pro
viding a way for counties to provide
free text books without calling on the
State, and authorizing the dean of the
department of agriculture in the Uni
versity of California and the State Su
perintendent of Public Instruction to
prescribe courses in agriculture and
domestic science for high schools.
Assemblyman N. W. Thompson of
Los Angeles also introduced several
educational bills. One of his meas
ures would enable normal schools to
turn out teachers of manual training
and domestic science, and another pro
vides that CO per cent of tho school
funds of each county shall be devoted
to salaries of teachers.
Both Strobrldge and Thompson were
members of the Assembly holdover
committee on education and their billa
follow the presentation of a ten thou
sand word report, prepared by them
selves, former Assemblymen James
Sleven and E. F. Treadwell and the
committee's secretary, H. A. Mason. •
Four Track Measure
Helps Harriman
SACRAMENTO, Jan. 17.— The ento
mological experts, while conceding that
there may be no bugs in the bill In
troduced In the House by Assemblyman
J. P. Transue to amend tbe act of em
inent domain so as to provide for the
condemnation of right of way for four
track roads, points out that it will have
Influential support in the Senate, and
that it will benefit the Interests of E.
H. Harriman. whose Los Angeles-Pacific
road, running from Los Angeles to the
beaches of Santa Monica, Ocean Park.
•Venice and other points, is to be four
tracked in the Immediate future.
Harriman's new entrance Into the
vital commercial center of Los Angeles
by means of a subway system from the
suburbs is in line witfi this project. The
lnterurban line of E E. Huntington
between Los Angeles and Long Beach
is also to be four-tracked, but the right
of way was acquired and paid for some
time ago. ,
Transue says tbe measure' is meant
to benefit the extension of lnterurban
electric roads. He comes from Los An
geles, where taking the organization
programme is regarded as a virtue by
all. Republicans. There Is a saving
grace about the provisions of the bill
at any rate, which will, as " Transue
points out, help In the development of
tbe district where the ; electric roads
wish to be enterprising. The Herrin
organization is not adverse to being
public spirited so long as the table
stakes of the. Harriman Interests are
taken care of.

LONDON. Jan. Jg.— The Times this
morning publishes the following ac
count of the earthquake cabled by John
Hennlker Heaton, M., P.:_
"After the opening •ceremony of the
conference Sir Alexander Swettenham
Invited ten of us to luncheon at the
Jamaica Club, including Sir James Fer
gusson. -who had arrived the previous
day. and who gave us an interesting
account of the work on the' Panama
canal. One hour afterward Sir James
\u25a0was burled under tons of brick and
stone. The' first fear as to his fate
was due to the fact that he did not re
turn during the night to Government
House, where he was staying, and at 5
o'clock in the morning Sir Alexander
came on board the Port Kingston to in
quire for his guest.
"After luncheon I left the club and
went with a member' of the council -to
visit the postofflce. I was returning
when the earthquake occurred. The
street was at moderate sized one, and
the moment the ground began to quake
thousands of people jumped into the
street from their houses.
"A huge building fell across ' the
street In the yard before us, another
building blocked the street behind us,
and on our left a third building fell.
Then came absolute darkness. Great
clouds ( of dust and mortar from the
debris the air for five minutes.
When light was restored my com
panion and I found ourselves black
with dust and dlrL It was a miraculous
"The scene that followed baffles de
scription. Women were embracing
children, others were on their knees
praying loudly with most intense feel
ing to God to have mercy and save
them. Others were fainting, others
wildly seeking their loved ones. We
climbed over the debris and returned
to the club. It was m ruins. • A young
fellow, hatless, coatless, with a hand
kerchief tied around his head, ad
dressed me in the street outside for
several minutes. At length something
peculiar struck me, and I asked if he
was Gerald Loder, for many years my
friend and former member of the
House of Commons.
"He said 'Yes.' H^ was writing in
the club when the roof fell, and was
pinned to the floor by the rsof, but
by freeing, himself from liis coat he
finally escaped to the street.
"The most awful sight was Mr. Brad
ley, a member of the club, lying dead
under the great fallen pillars of the
building. That night we slept on the
lawn of the hotel, and during the
hqurs between- sunset and sunrise felt
at least three earthquake shocks.
"The blaze of the flre from the city
was plainly visible. At dawn I got
coffee and then drove to Kingston,
a distance of six miles. All along the
road were encamped families outside
their , homes. At Kingston I drove
many miles through the streets. At
least ninety-six out of every hundred
houses were in ruins- or damaged be
yond repair. This, I say from personal
observation, yet nine-tenths of them
were old and many ought to, have been
destroyed long ago.
"On arriving aboard our ship It was
a great- Joy to find Sir Alfred Jones,
notwithstanding his miraculous escape,
giving orders clearly and forcibly to
his secretary; to meet the troubles by
the erection of light = shelters : and ar
rangements for cooking for the poor
people." v

Dealers Evince a Lively Interest
in Coming Automobile Show
R. R. l'Hommedieu
It is estimated that the oars and ac
cessories that will be exhibited at the
automobile . show in this city next
month will have a value of more than
half a million dollars." \Homerßoushey.
chairman of the show v committee, said
yesterday that the display is going to
prove a surprise to the public. In fact,
he thinks it will surprise some of the
members of the trade. : The dealers are
taking great pride *in the exhibition
arrangements and "are trying to secure
the big cars that are .being exhibited
In New York. That some of the dealers
will meet with successes certain, and
the San Francisco public will be shown,
cars the liko of which have never -be
fore come over the ; Rockies. .
Eastern manufacturers have been
watching the local market for the last
few months and they realize that the
.showing made here will assist ma
terially in securing : trade in the years
to come.
• Bousbey, in talking of the matter \
yesterday, said: "The local dealers are
taking great interest In the exhibit and
will make a creditable showing. They
are ordering the finer, make of cars,
trusting that they will be able to dis
pose of them after; the show. This is
a wise move, I think, for undoubtedly
San Francisco is improving in an auto
mobile way and those who can afford
to are buying the more up-;to-date cars.
Under these circumstances I do not
think dealers will lose anything by
bringing out the better vehicles.
"It is not generally known that the
value of the -exhibits next month will
be more than a half million . dollars.
This will be a really' excellent show
ing. Now that the: space has been
allotted the dealers are, quietly work
ing .out decorative ; ; schemes :'to .make
their - exhibits » attractive. ".<L- Judging
fron^ the hints dropped around automo
mtle ' row,' there '.will some very
artistic concessions."
William Middleton of the . Middleton
Motor Car ' Company, who is visiting
the New -York' show, writes that from
present indications at the exhibition
the business outrook Is' brighter than
-ever before. \u25a0•'\u25a0 He notes many improve
ments in the 1907 automobiles exhibited
in New York— improvements \ that ap
peal to the buyer. ''--'Middleton reports
that many Californlans are attending
the show. Among "those who he met
arc Leon Roos and wife, John Fleming
ton and Mr. and Mrs. Heeseman of Oak
land. The latter has practically placed
his order for one of the Columbia high
power runabouts. Before returning
Middleton will go South to attend the
automobile races In Florida.
The Maxwell-Briscoe Motor Company
is to commence a series of tests on
alcohol to determine its practlcaballty
School of Science. "It is continually
changing form, in certain respects and
the changes cause earthquakes in dif
ferent localities.
"In i Japan alone- there are often two
or three quakes a day, so we may see
that they /are common occurrences."
"Certain changes are taking place all
the time," said Professor W. W. At
wood, professor oosf s physiography and
general geography. \u0084„
"The earth has always been in a state
of unrest from the beginning. This

turbulent. ' I should term it a peaceful

"Few motorists know," said J. D.
Maxwell, "that in many Instances a
spark plug can be made to flre regu

cylinder.. When a plug misses flre,
due to short circuit from oil or grease,
' if the wire to the plug is detached and
held about a quarter of an inch from
the . plug — -with the motor running—
this .will • act as a spark gap and the
plug will generally clean itself. Should
it fail to do so, the only remedy is to
