Jeffries and Johnson Probably
Will Meet in This City
July 4
Attitude of Oakland Authorities
Makes Emeryville's Chances
One in a Hundred
Rickard and Gleason Practically
Have Completed Plans to
Stage Battle Here
EMERYVILLE is dinging to the
pugilistic map by the most deli
cate thread, but the chances are
100 to 1 against the Jeffries-Johnson
fight being staged there. The pro
meters find the transbay ground so
shaky under their feet that the}' prac
tically have completed their plans to
come back tv »San Francisco. .The
attitude of District Attorney Donahue
and Sheriff Barnet of Alamcda county
has not changed within the last 24
hours. If anything, the threatening
clouds have grown blacker and more
Rickard and Gleason. the promoters,
arc striving desperately to settle upon
a battle ground without further delay.
That they made good use of the last
24 hours is attested by the fact that
they have already laid their plans for
another invasion of San Francisco.
They have been assured that the big
Jiattle ran \>e staged here without offl
. t-;al interference and they also have
been promised that the necessary per
mit will be granted by the police com
mittee of the supervisors next Monday
Will Transfer Permit
This permit is to be issued to the
Broadway club, of whfch James J. Grif
- fin is the manager. The promoters
talked business with Griffin last night
and the night before. He practically
''has accepted their terms, and if noth-
I :r.g jroes wrong in the meantime he
v formally Trill turn, over his permit to
<;iea*on and Rickard just as soon as it
Is grants! by the supervisors.
John [*' Herget, chairman, of the
police committee of the supervisor*.
• Trill not oppose tlie transfer of the per
mit. On the contrary, he will en
courage it. Ilerge.t is an old time
fighter, referee and promoter himself.
Although he and Rickard had a tilt
several months ago, Herget seems very
•willing- to let bygones be bygones.
With this end in view, he will do all in
his power to aid the promoters.
"Rickard and Gleason did not treat
me right some months ago when they
promised to stage* the battle in San
Francisco," said Herget yesterday. "I
will admit that I was ruffled at the
time and the sporting public at large
sided with me. However, it is all over
. now and I hold no ill feeling toward
either of the promoters.
Will Help City
!**l " believe that the people of San
Francisco want to see this great bat
tle decided here. It will help the town
to a. marked degree. It will bring a
lot of people and a lot of money here.
As long as San Francisco tolerates
prizefights, there is no reason in the
world why this, the nght of all fights.
should not be decided here. If the
promoters keep within the law. I will
not oppose them. In fact, I- will do
'f *rhat I can to help them.
"There is nothing in the city ordi
nance to prevent a 45 round contest.
The ordinance Bays that these bouts
must be limited, but no limit is named.
It hae been a time honored custom for
the supervisors to place the limit at
.20 rounds. However, as long as Jef
rles and Johnson have signed for a 45
round contest. I believe that the arti
cles should be lived up to, and I be
lieve that none of the city officials will
, have any objections to offer."
Rickard and Gleason even have gone
co far as to cast about for a suitable
location for their arena. They have
two sites In view — the old Central
park property at Eighth and Market
streets and the Ocean Shore terminal
grounds at Twelfth and Mission streets.
Either would suit the purpose of the
promoters, and it is only a matter of
'\u25a0losing with the owners. It is under
stood that negotiations will be opened
immedlatelj', or at least after the per
mit for the bout , has been officially
• tamped.
Williams Makes Statement '
Thomas H. Williams," president of the
New California jockey club. and. the
man from whom the promoters . have
leased the Emeryville arena, denies that
hr has broken faith with Rickard or
that he hap failed to live up to his
promise. Williams admits, however,
that he informed Rickard pome days
ago that he would prefer that" the fight
take place elsewhere, but he adds that
O" assured Rickard that he would live
'vp to every letter of his contract- in the
svMit that another battle ground could
not be found.
"Whether or not the combat will be
h«ld across the bay Is entirely in; the.
