Champion Feels Menace of Race Hatred and Is Guarded in Car
Pathetic Spectacle of Monday Looked
Upon as Hastening the End
' way, too. It is just like an old ball
player getting back into the game
. whose forte has been batting and try
..ing out by catching flies, or a great
stake horse being trained by driving
him in a cab. Jeffries should have
boxed and be did not. He fishad and
he ran on the road. He Uid not. Im
prove his boxing judgment. In John
. son he met a man who is to boxing
what the aeroplane is to transporta
tion. Jeffries met something new. an
offensive and defensive fighter, and he,
•did not know what to do. Johnson isJ
the modern athletic boxer at his high
. «£t attainment. Jeffries represented a
echool that haJ not improved. All
• prize fights ought to be stopped. It is
poor sport, when conducted on a hip
podrome scale. It was the last of the
4b! g fights in this country. Australia
likely will be the battleground of
future encounters." .
Charle* Dunbar, capitalist of Van
couver — "Jeffries was out of tune with
Tiis surroundings. He was hors' de
combat. I am so Eick of his showing
that I don't want to tJiscuss it."
Sandy McXaußhton, proprietor of
the Breakers — "Johnson has always
bee nthe champion of the worid. He
never had a chance until recently, that
is why his worth as a boxer was not
appreciated. He didn't have to try to
defeat Jeffries. Trying to bring Jef
fries back is like putting a horse out
to grass for three years, and then ex
pecting him to run in a Btake event.
Boxing will continue 60 long as there
\u25a0are good men in the ring. Jeffries* de
feat means a lull in the sport, It is
true, because there is nobody fit to
meet Johnson. But time will change
these conditions end Johnson will get
older and the inevitable rule of youth
will again assert itself."
Earl Bogrer*, attorney.,. of Los An
jr es i e — "Jeffries was forced into the
fight by the continual pleading of his
f riendß." The long strain of training
robbed him of whatever vitality he
possessed after his long period of Idle
ness. He looked like a middle, aged
man who was well to me. J Further
more, he was sick for three days before
the fight. His stomach bothered him
considerably. Owing to his lack of
boxing training his judgment was at
fault. He could not see with both eyes
at «nee. "Why, seven years, ago it
would have been impossible for John^
Fan to hit Jeffries the way he did. We
>^,ye seen the last of the great flghtsl
fcrhey ca.n g-o to Australia now.' That if
the chief reason for my going to Renot
because I realized that It was the last
chance to see a big mill. I did not see
It all, either. I/felt so sorry for Jeff
that I left the arena three rounds be
fore the end came."
Frank W. Smlfh, wholesale cigarman,
of Spokane — "The public was fooled—
but so was Jeff.. I don't think he re
alized that he wasn't his old self. My
excursion started with 250 names, but
100 dropped out when the fight was
changed from San Francisco to Reno.
Out of these 150 a poll on the train
showed only about 12 favored Johnson,
so you can imagine our emotions at
the fight. Yet we are not soured on
' the game and have for the most part
our old enthusiasm. Nevada is the only
place left for it. and' Reno made a good :
Impression on us. There was no tend
ency to gouge and everyone was good
natured. Rickard's management; was
s. wonderful piece of work; If the ac
commodations were enlarged we should
risk it again to Reno. You, can never
kill the game, even with a poor show;
The love of sport is too strong for the
people. Of course, there will be a re
action. There isa " moral wave going
on over the country, and this flght will
make the sporting public temporarily
indifferent. But the game will come
back in time with its old favor.*',.
E- M. O'Brien, sport enthusiast of
Portland. Ore. — The public will riot fall
for another fight like this. . It' was not
worth crossing the street to see, con-,
eidered as an exhibition. '-- ' This T" ends
the fight game. It. has killed; itself.:' >-.;.-
Mo*e Gaunt, tobacconist— l "put'7my
money on Johnson because I believed
he had It in him. At no time did I
think Jeff could i make the return "trip
to condition: that he promised. , Once
1 was satisfied: that the -colored -.man
was the one who had the steam, I bet
on him. My opinion was concurred in
by my friends who watched the negro
at his training quarters at the Seal
Rock house and at Reno. Telegraphic
information from Reno kept me posted
on his work there. Just before the:
men left town I saw Jeffries and John
son get Into .automobiles. Jeff got in
too slowly to suit me, while Johnson
had the spring that suggested youth
and strength. I was guided in , the
fight by the same rules* that guide me
in a race. A stake^orse that has been
sent out to pasture for four or five
years never comes back, and as a rule
any selling "plater can win easily
against such a horse. Jeff was a great
fighter once, but Johnson was his mas
ter all the time. "
Abe Hummel. New York lawyer— l
could not induce myself to go to Reno
with a gang of y'eggmen, crooks arid
confidence men. I have known the
men of the fighting world for years
and have" represented a number of
them — Corbett, Sullivan, Sharkey — but
I could not find an argument to take
me to the big mill. I tried to avoid
the bunch that I knew would follow
the, men. The fight' game, is in bad
odor, not on account of the men who
are doing: the fighting, but because- of
the element of crooks that follow the |
big battles across the continent. :It
was a matter of indifferenre to me
who won. \u25a0 , „ . ,
\u25a0 Clarence Berrr»*-the Fresno million
aire — I'm afraid it's all off .with the
fight game. Personally I: think I have
witnessed the last big battle that - will
be seen in ; America. \u25a0 They . may take
the : men to Australia' or some other
country, but public sentiment will bury
It here.' It. might, have been otherwise
had Jeffries won, _ but I think, there is
a general feeling . of., dissatisfaction
among the menlwho ordinarJlyrenthuse
after a big fistic It's over in
California and there is evidence of ."a
general crusade; against th« r rgame: In
the entire country. Until' somebody is
found who can .llck^ Johnson,- and that

' AVillinm Aman of Los Angeles-
Johnson was the' best man' and proved
it to everybody. He put up a" fine: fight
and gave a' splendid exhibition .of sci
ence and skill. He "was fa^t and: In
perfect condition. The fact . that he
won should be an" Impetus to ' the "game ;
in this country." There are certainly
those who have donned the mitts who
would like to meet him. I think he will
stimulate the" Interest; ln pugilism, for
it will be^a clever man who defeats
him. and I guess'he wiir be.wjlllng.to
dvesome of rtiem. a chance. .Preju
dice should not enter into sport. The
colored man iwon: a^ clean,, victory and
Jeff was fairly -defeated. There .was
nothing that happened' in the ring that
can g"ve occasion for criticism ;It; was
the lame; square -and- fair,, ln^which

OGDEN, Utah, J\ily 5. : — Jack Johnson, was greeted by.a crowd of 5,000 people when- the train to! .which,
his pri%'ate car ; was attached pulled into Ogden. Johnson appeared \u25a0 upon the 1 platform 1 ; and in • re
sponse to desultory cheering said: \u25a0' \.- •'":'\u25a0\u25a0 -;-.:,, ;V ,
Well; people, I turned the trick and I'm soing Imek to Chicago to my old mammy. I went oat there '
determined to turn the trick and I had- no trouble in doing it. '
After shaking hands with a few colored; admirers Johnson^ returned to':. the car and seated. himself ,next r to
an open window beside his wife. Three burly young tough's walked up to the open car window and, apply-"
ing a vile epithet to Johnson in the 'presence of his wife, dared him to come *to the platform. Johnson started,
to. his feet, but one of his companions drew him down again. The young toughs rushed to the rear platform,
where one of them ,was;met with a. kick- from the foot of one. of Johnson's /trainers and a mouthful, of
tobacco juice full in the eyes. -- . - .: : . ""/ .v^'

had gathered in the vicinity of the caV. - ;'* ; ." — . - \u25a0

Fred AVey. fan and capitalist of" Salt

the race riots should mark. ; the vic
tory of Johnson. , I thought, up to the
time I heard of these' running street
fights and murders. , that * the : game was
In just -as good ; a"' condition ,as . ever.
But .the public- cojftsciencei can .not.tol
