Pugilist Sentenced, for Speed
ing Pleads Promise of Im
munity From Prison
Having entered a plea of guilty to a
charge of violating the speed laws, John
Arthur Johnson, champion heavy
weight pugilist of the world, was sen
tenced yesterday by Acting Police
Judge A B. Treadwell to serve a term
of 25 days in the branch county jail at
Ingleside. 'He was taken there, but
after four hours of? incarceration was
released on bonds by Judge Mogan
pending an appeal from the judgment.
When sentence was ' pronounced
Johnson stood amazed before the bar
of the court. He turned to the news
papermen and said:
"Well. I've been double crossed be
fore, but never like this. When I was
arrested a few days ago for driving
through the park at a high rate of
speed I went to Judge Treadwell in his
chambers and told him that I was
guilty and that I didn't want to fight
the case. I said that I didn't want to
put the authorities to the bother of
another jury trial.
"Judge Treadwell told me that if I
would plead guilty he would fine me. It
was with tills understanding that I
pleaded guilty the other day. If that
Isn't being double crossed I don't know
what is. If the judge hadn't told me
1 would have stood trial ln court and
taken my chances."
Judge Treadwell would not discuss
this phase of the case. He said that it
was true that Johnson had been In his
chambers, but that the conversation
between them was not worth while
talking about
A few minutes after Johnson was
sentenced to prison with no alterna
tive J. M. Burge. manager for the
Pacific coast agency of the Simplex
automobile company, with whom John
son was racing along the highway in
the park at the time of his arrest In-
Mounted Policeman Dolan, was fined
$50. .
Before bis case was called Johnson ]
entered the courtroom and asked that
sentence be pronounced. He was met
with a rebuff from the judge, who or
dered him to take his seat, telling.him.
that he had no special privileges. John
eon retired, waiting until he was sum
moned to the desk. With him were
Eddie Graney, the referee, and Billy
Finnigan. Supervisor J. Emmet Hay
den also appeared in Johnson's behalf.
Judge Treadwell had determined that
Johnson should go to jail and was
obdurate when requested to deal leni
ently with the fighter.
Johnson was permitted to remain in
the city prison while his attorneys, J.
J. Greely and T. I. Fitzpatrlck, took
steps to have him admitted to bail.
Treadwell refused to entertain such a
motion and the matter was taken be
fore Superior Judge E. P. JMfcgan on an
appeal from the Judgment imposing
sentence. Bail was fixed at $500, which
was promptly furnished, and Johnson,
who had been taken to the Ingleside
jail at 3 o'clock by Deputy Sheriff
Newsome in an automobile, was lib
erated at 7 o'clock. , He went directly
to his home and sat down to a' chicken
dinner. ;

Mrs. Theresa Oelrichs Places
Seven Blocks at Disposal
, of Exposition
Mrs. Theresa Oelrichi has :telegraphed
to the Law brothers In* this city that
she will place at the disposal of the
Panama-Pacific International exposition
company, without charge, the seven
block- of land she owns in the Harbor
view district if that section is selected
as the site for the exposition. Word
of the action of Mrs. Oelrichs was con
veyed to F. T.. Hansen, president of the
Harbor View association, and Hie
Golden Gate Valley improvement club.
Mrs. Virginia Vanderbilt sister of
Mrs. Oelrichs, holds 22 blocks in the dis
trict, which were included in the estate
of their father, the late James Fair.
Efforts are now being made to have
Mrs. Vanderbilt offer her land free of
rental to the exposition company.
"We are confident now." said Presi
dent Hansen yesterday, "that the fair
will be located at Harbor view. lam
as confident of it as I am that I will
eat my dinner tonight. If Mrs. Van
derbilt follows the example of Mrs. Oel
richs we shall have the property hold
ers of 90 per cent of the 400 in the
district signed up. The property we
secuio will come to the exposition com
pany free of rental charge.
"We have received assurances that if
the Harbor view site is selected we can
have the use of 300 acres of the Pre
sidio reservation and a large section
of the land at Fort Mason on condition
that the exposition company leaves a
permanent building on the government
land... *' *;7?
"The United Railroads officials have
assured us that they can handle the
transportation problems. One plan sug
gested is to secure permission from the
legislaftre to lay two streetcar lines,
or four tracks, in Van Ness avenue dur
ing the period of the fair.
"There are some Improvements on
the fair /site property, which may
amount to, about $300,000, but the sav
ing In freight If the fair is held there
will more than pay for the purchase of
those Improvements. With the fair lo
cated at Harbor view all the building
materials and most of the exhibits can
be transported directly to. the fair
grounds by vessel, and heavy freight
charges can be avoided.
"The nearness of the site to the cen
ter of the city will mean that its lo
cation at Harbor view would cause the
downtown district now unbuilt to be
covered with permanent buildings."
From nearly every county in the
state word has corn* to the exposition
board of great activity in preparing
county exhibitions at the Panama-
Pacific • exposition. The' question .of
participation is pending before 100 com
mercial bodies of the state, and in many
Instances action will be taken in time
to insure three years' for preparation.
Because of the interest shown in the
work of arranging for. exhibitions by
states west of the Mississippi it lias
become apparent that western features
and" western exhibits will predomi
nate at the exposition. It Is pointed
out by. the board that the agriculturists
of California will meet.with keen com
petition furnished by the producers in
neighboring states. .
The San Mateo county, board of trade
has devoted several sessions to dis
cussion of the exposition subject and
the problem of adequate representa
tion. An appropriation of $50,000 has
been urged by a special organization
of all the commercial bodies in the
county. "-*>.'. **
The chamber of commerce :of Santa
Clara county has appointed* a special
committee of seven • members, which
will undertake the raising of the
necessary funds ■ for the erection of . a
building and the gathering of exhibits.
At a meeting of the North of the Bay
association it was agreed that not.less
than $100,000 should be •' appropriated
for; the erection of- a representative
building. The association has repre
sentatives of Napa, Marin. Sonoma,
Mendocino, Humboldt and Lake coun
ties, 7

Former Interior Secretary Pays
His Respects to Newspapers

Apostle of Socialism and "I Am

as Warning Q
; SEATTLE, March Citizens of
Seattle tonight paid their tribute of
respect and sympathy to Richard A.
Ballinger, for two years secretary of
the interior, and during most of the
time: involved In a bitter controversy
over the policy of .conservation. The
great dining room of the Hotel "Wash

and there, attended by Mayor George
W. Dilllng and presidents of 10 com
mercial and social, organizations, Bal
linger received the greetings of friends
and sympathizers. Several thousand
persons passed along the receiving line.
Ballinger ln his address said:
, - You can not know the extent of
; suffering which I have borne silent
ly at the hands of a political con
spiracy and a muckraking press;
nevertheless, your unfaltering con
fidence ln me, and your loyalty and
support, have always been a sus
taining force. ■.'■.,■
Let me warn you that the great
coming Issue of .American polities, -
national ln scope and upon which
parties must be reconstructed, is
the question! of whether we are to
retain our republican Institutions
in their comparative purity, or per- ;
mit our government to be trans
formed into a socialistic democ
. racy. . •
I plead with my fellow citizens to
he temperate in their consideration
of all changes which affect the
; fundamental law and the estab
lished institutions of the land, and
to be guided not by a penny-a-llner.
; the muck-raker. the apostle of
socialism or the man who stands
forth proclaiming "I am the issue."
but to listen to the experience
ages, to the experience of the »,
statesmen and patriots of our coun
try who have written our history in
the golden light of the new era and
baptized It In - the blood of our
fathers. .
