Championship Will Be Decided
In or Near This City
By R. A. Smyth
After an almost interminable discussion, Wfllus Britt and Ben
Selig. acting for Jimmy Britt and Joe Gans, drew up a set of articles
last night and opened the bids made for a meeting between the
lightweights. Three bids were received, and one of them will be
accepted tomorrow night. From appearances the managers of the
boxers are inclined to accept one of the bids for a meeting in or
near this city.
Jim Coffroth offered 70 per cent of the gross receipts for a
fight at Colma on September 9. ,
Jack Gleason offered 75 per cent for a fight at>the baseball
park In this city on the same day. In
addition to a percentage, he guaraulaed
that the share of the fighters would
not be less than $25,000.
1 Jim May, the representative of the
;Rer 4 o Athletic club, made a fiat offer of
la J2C.000 purse for a fight at Reno ou
't September 2.
On« of the curious things developed
iby the tiresome discussion over the
Articles of agreement that the men
Eigned was the fact that Britt tried to
g-et away from making a ringside
\u25a0 \u25a0weight. He wanted to weigh in three
hours before the fight at 133 pounds,
ior. If the fight be held at night, to
;weigh In at 6 o'clock. Scllgr held out
jfrota first to last for IS3 pounds,
[stripped at the ringside, r.lthough at
jone point of the discussion lie told Britt
ithat he could take any one of the three
(weights suggested provided he named
It lest night.
Britt likes the substantial meal that
he can enjoy if the weighing in is at
j ringside, but he seemed to overlook the
ifact that every ounce that Gans weighs
lover 132 pounds makes him so much
:inore formidable. Britt appeared to be
•afraid that Gans might be defeated by
I.Memsic at Los Angeles and had a
clause inserted in the articles provid
ing that If either contestant engaged
'in another match before their meeting
'In September and was defeated he
should forfeit $2,500 to the other man.
Britt was anxious for moving pic
tures of the fight, but Selig shied at
these, saying that Gans had an un
pleasant experience with them in the
past and lost money. Britt said that
\u25a0while he received $14,000 for the fight
ers' share at Colma he received twice
this amount for his Interest in the
moving pictures. The articles signed
by the men last night follow:
This agr*enj*nt made and watered into th!s

The match makers are as busy as
bees trying to bring some of the
heavy freights together. Greggains
has offered Mike Schreck a match with
Al Kaufman, Billy Delaney's big protege,
and expects to bring the men together
this month. He applied to the super
visors yesterday for a permit. Kauf
man is anxious to fight Tommy Burns,
If the latter cannot be sent into the
ring with Jack Johnson. Kaufman be
lieves he can lower the colors of the
lighter who put it on Bill Squires and
has been after him for some time.
There has been some talk of pitting
Kaufman against Squires, but Delaney
Is not giving • that serious attention
nt this time. When Squires landed
.here Delaney tried to get him on with
Kaufman, but the Australian would
not entertain the proposition. Delaney
\u25a0wanted him to prorepse he would give
Kaufman preference if he were suc
cessful In his meeting with Burns. He
\u25a0would not agree to this, so Delaney
•^Brill not go out of his way to help the
visitor to a match at this time.
• • •
Manager Coffroth said yesterday that
_ he had not clinched a m«.tch between
Burns and Johnson. CoffrOth wired
his eastern representative to obtain
'Johnson's best terms for such a match
,and with that Information in his pos
session he intended to "make an offer
to Burns. The latter has placed a high
'valuation upon his services, according
to some of his friends, as he wants
to be sure of $20,000 as his share be
fore he enters the ring. If his theat
rical venture i« not a success he prob
ably will come down in hi* price.

them on some Saturday afternoon In
'September at the Meadows, Coff roth's
place near Colma. The intention Is
to put the winner of this fight on later
In the year with the winner of the
Ketchel-Thomas fight, which is sched
uled toe Labor day. This would be
tan especially attractive match, as the
winner could'clalra the welter weight
championship without any one disput

conditions form a feature of it.

there was to be a great automobile day
at Santa Cruz September 21. One of
the'main: events. will be a 150 mile road
race. .The races and .other automobile
features are being handled by several
enthusiasts who -are 'forming a new
organization. . It is likely to be the
greatest in the history of the automo
bile game, up to the present time In the
state.. Some very handsome and valu
able "trophies .. are to be offered. ' The
races are Ito be so attractive that every
one v who has a car with any speed will
takefpart. *tThe"' road^ race will be run
withlno limits to speedJVV.
"•^.ThoseHwhoyare handling the eve"nt
have" I ; laid .out a" ,15' riiile course, /which
Is" to* be covered 10 times. A petition is
'the \u25a0 supervisors ' of ' Santa Cruz
courity : asking for permission to hold
the race on ' the • roads there.
. Twenty-five deputy sheriffs, armel
with stop watches, cameras, flags and
any other implements that they may
,believe to be of advantage in holding
up? and getting evidence on speeding
automobiles, will take'the road between

.was- declared "by the Marin county
board 'of supervisors yesterday and \u25a0the
army of ; deputies was the result.
;Twenty miles an hour on straight
stretches "of 'the county road has been
the, speed limit set by the ; supervisors
for some time. Finding that, this law
was being x violated- by almost . every
auto that found" occasion to ; pass this
way, despite glaring white signs posted
at the roadside ; warning their
against such'practice, the supervisorial
board waxed wroth' and arranged the

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 6.— The fight
against pugilistic encounters in this
city was renewed in the city council
today, when Councilman Wallace in
troduced another antiboxing ordinance.
The measure does not prohibit pugi
listic encounters, but if it becomes a
law it will remove all the attractive
ness which the game might have to
those interested in the sport. It pro
vides that all contests shall be limited
to 10 rounds, that there shall be no
third. man in the ring and that there
shall be no decision. The measure is
patterned after the law which obtains
in Philadelphia, with some modifica
This is virtually the same measure
which was defeated here some months
ago. but just now there is a fair chance
of it being enacted, although the pro
moters of the fight game here are
fighting hard to kill it.

is held iip a second time.
The supervisors explain their action
against the auto by declaring that few
business machines frequent this side
of, the bay and that as a consequence
teams, which are. required to be on the
roads, are in danger from machines
whose occupants are on pleasure bent.
They declare that all culprits gathered
in \u25a0 will .be . harshly, dealt with regard
