EMERYVILLE FAVORED
AS SCENE OF BIG FIGHT
Rickard Is Satisfied and the Official
Announcement Is Expected- Today
Jockey Club President Will Decide Today
THOMAS WILLIAMS
AT A o'clock tomorrow afternoon I Tvill decide. Mt. Rickard has
\u25a0Tl been to see me. I have not talked yet to the mayor of Emeryville.
Of course, I knot) that the infield of the track might be the scene of the
great fight. / will decide for my part tomorrow afternoon.
Mayor Christie Pledges Hearty Support to Protect
MAYOR CHRISTIE OF EMERYVILLE
THE proposition has come to me unofficially.Of course, it tt-i// have to
•* go to the Emeryville council to be decided. lam in favor of it myself.
It might not be much for Emeryville to bring this fight off here, but it
certainly nould be an accommodation to San Francisco, rvhich not only
wants the big fight, but has got to have it. "v.T-;
Nevada Promoter in Favor of Race Track Site
/THIXK Emcnvillf is close enough to San Francisco so nobody can
have any hick. They can climb into the boats by thousands and gel
over there in a half hour. They could never go to Colma in that big a
/mrrv. We have not settled it vet, but /' am in favor of Emeryville^
JOSEPH MURPHY
AT 4 o'clock this afternoon Tom William?, the big chief of the New ;
California jockey club, will in all probability decide that the Jeffries- j
Johnson battle for the world's heavy weight championship shall be
fought where they have been racing the ponies. The last answer is
to come from Williams. W. H. Christie, the mayor of Emeryville, is ;
already prepared with hi? answer, and it is all in favor of the fight being \u25a0
pulled oif across the bay. Tex Rickard, who has seesawed long in the !
matter of the location of the l>ig battle, agrees that Emeryville is ideal. ;
Tex say- , "':",'\u25a0•, !
"If it i> not in San P'rancisco. it is as close as San 1-rancisco can get. '
Tex is probably rigrht. They can trip across the bay in .boatloads where
they could not go to Colnia by the car.? ; a
Everybody, seems to be willing that the fight' should go to Emeryville.:
While the matter has not been brought to the attention of the Emeryville
city council, it is known that the officials of. the town arc in line, and the
mayor and the council j-.re not likely to have any friction over the matter.
NO BETTER LOCATION OUTSIDE OF CITY PROPER
While Williams says that he is to see the mayor this afternoon and
zUo Rickard, it is generally understood that the matter has been discussed
and that it has been found agreeable to all parties that the big fight should
go to the tran sbay town. There only remains an official announcement.
Outside of San Francisco proper there is no better location conceivable
than Emeryville. The location would v not be a drawback to the fight in
any way. The place is easy of access from San Francisco and from all*
other points.
That the Southern Pacific railroad can handle the crowds has been
proved time and time again when 10,000. and 12,000 persons have attended
jome of the big races at -the Emeryville course.
The inclosure of the track would prove spacious enough to .hold the
immense throng which will undoubtedly be on hand to witness the heavy
weight gladiators battle for the greatest honor in the prize ring. The ring
could be pitched in the green infield and bleachers and scats could be built
around to scat any sized crowd which might be on hand. The immense
grandstand could al=o be utilized. \
Rickard and Gleason, the promoters, have been casting around for
suitable locations from many days. The local field has been thoroughly
looked over, and offers from outside sources have been considered. /The
promoters have been slow in making an announcement until \u25a0 the matter
of selecting a location had been wearing on the nerves of the sporting
public. .-'?.;'-: r ;'-;\u25a0." '&.
PROMOTERS REALIZE NEED OF PROMPT ACTION
The talk of the different places which were to get the fight had the
fans up in the air and guessing where they were "at." The promoters
realized that something must be done soon, or else the delay in naming the
battleground would likely have a derogatory effect on the fight.
Rickard and Gleason have been working on the, Emeryville project
for several d*ays. and they have virtually concluded that it is the most' likely
spot.; They said Sunday that a definite announcement would be made
Tuesday or Wednesday, and 'as Emeryville is the only place they have been
considering for the last two days, Emeryville looks to be the choice to
land the battle when the promoters make their declaration.
As far a^ President Williams is concerned, he is known as favoring
all legitimate sports. It will be remembered' that he was instrumental in
having Inglcsidc coursing park reopened some years ago, after it had been
closed up as a result of legislation which was directed against the racetrack
instead of coursing.
Emeryville is an incorporated town which has practically sprung from
the opening of the racetrack there some years ago. A great many of the
citizens of the town arc connected with horse racing in some capacity
There is hardly any chance of any opposition being directed against the
battle being held there by the citizens of the town. .
-Heretofore there have been no professional fights held in Emeryville.
The. big fight going there will undoubtedly help to liven the place up a bit.
The meeting this afternoon will tell the talc. V • : ' ,_ ,
COUNCILMAN SAYS ALL FAVOR PLAN.
John C. Coburn, a member of the Emeryville council, said:
"There has been talk about the holding of the.dight^at. Emeryville.
Personally I like the boxing game, and"" I sec no reason why it should not
be held here. Others on the board are inclined to that view. I am sure
that if it were put to a vote of the the proportion -in favor would
be 99 to 1. The board has sole jurisdiction over the question of granting
permission."

Lang ford's Challenger
Jim -Barry and "Gunboat" Smith are
Jn.fine shape for their 10 round bout
before" theiOakland Vwheelmen tomor
row ; night. men have trained
faithfully for the^'encotinter and will
enter the ; ring. ripht on edge.' \u25a0
Betting isquitc' brisk at even money,
although Commissioner Tom Corbejt
says that he expects Barry to b*: r a
lukewarm*- favorite at odds .of about
9, to' 10; at | the ringside. Quite a lot
ofrmoney has been wagered by local
admirers of the bluejacket, who look
for him to reach the Chicago heavy
weight's jaw with' one "of his sleep
producing wallops. -:.,'-
Inasmuch as; this, is Barry's initial
appearance here.anJ in view of the
fact that he has been promised a match
with his old ;, rival from Weymouth in
case h« defeats.v Smith, he can be de
pended upon ; to T wade right into- the
gunner from theltap of the gong.
v The gunboat 'slugger.: realizes that. he
has . : th'e'r opportunity of his life to jump
into prominence tomorrow night and
as he; wants to get . the^riiatch with
Sam' Langford he. has informed Luke
Marisch and all of • his admirers to; get
a" bet down ion ..him^ Marisch states
that he; has (already wagered ?500 that
Smith will be returned the victor, and
if the odds are tempting he. expects to
get down, another chunk on. the. sailor.
The preliminary contests look good.

®b©b®> FOfl RHEUMATISM
In a disease so painful as Rheumatism, medicines containing opiates
and nerve-quieting drugs are often used. Such treatment isxiangerous not
only -because it frequently causes the sufferer to become addicted to the
drug habit, but inedicines of; this nature are always injurious to the system.
Rheumatism is a disease of tho blood, and its cure depends entirely upon a
thorough 'purification of the circulation. As long as the blood remains
saturated with uric acid,' an inflammatory condition of thd nerves, muscles
and tendons of the bodywill exist, and the pains, aches, soreness, and hot,
feverish flesh of Rheumatism will continue. - Tho one safe and sure cure'for^^
Rheumatism is S. S.S. It is nature's remedy for this disoase, made entirely
of the healing, cleansing juices. and extracts of roots, herbs and barks from
the natural forests. r S. S. S. does not contain anything that is in the slightest
way injurious to the system. It is absolutely and purely vegetable* and
free from [opiates or .sedatives of : any kind. S. S. S. cures Rheumatism by
removing the uric acid from the circulation, it makes the blood pure, rich
and heaalthyso that instead of depositing sharp, uratic impurities into tho
muscles,^nerves,:joints and bones,, it nourishes every portion of the body
with natural, healthful properties. Book oa Rheumatism and any medical
