IS IN GOOD SHAPE NOW Says Flynn is Tough and Hard to Beat Don't Care About Pictures. Kansas City (Mo.) Journal. Heavyweight Champion Jack John son, flashing his golden smile, made famous by the pen of Jack London vhen Johnson beat Tommy Burns with his smile and his mits in Syd ney, Australia, and was thereby de clared world champion, shook hands with a crowd of friends at the Union depot last night as he passed through. thi3 city on his way to Las Vega3, T here he will fight Jim Flynn July 4th for the title. Jack wa3 accoirpanied by Mrs. Johnson, the champion's mother, sev eral sparring partners, including Marty Cutler, his chief trainer until Tom Flanagan arrives, and his cook9, entertainers, etc. He did not have a private car, but it might as well have been as his party about filled it, leaving just space enough for the champion's bass violin, which, next to his automobiles &nd his family, is his prize treasure. Jack had Just appeared on the plat form wearing the golden smile when someone in the crowd that greeted him here yelled, "Jack, how's the bet ting?" "Now you've got me right off tho cushion," replied the champion. "Don't know a thing about how the betting is, but I know what the best bet to make is and that is for John Arthur Johnson, heavyweight cham pion of the world, to win within fif t n rounds. I would say ten be cause I am going to win as soon a3 I can, but we better say fifteen and make it sure." Then someone suggested chicken Gives Coin to School Children. "What's that I hear?" replied Jack, flashing the white of his optics, "Chicken, that's me," and he just re membered that they might take a dining car off the train here. He signaled a porter and ar.ked about it Finding that the diner might be tak en off, he asked that it be kept until they reached Las Vegas, and they were trying to make arrangements for it when he returned to the crowd and resumed his chatter. Jack was mugged a couple of times and the colored gents of the city be decked in diamonds were right in the center of the photo, believe us.

I m 11 in -null there were some present on this occa sion. Jack's trip from Chicago here was a fast one, and yet a hard cne for tha champion because each time the San ta Fe train on which he Is traveling stopped at a station he was met by a big crowd and responded each time to calls for a Bpeech. Likely the best reception he re ceived was in Galesburg, 111. The school teachers of that city are to hold a benefit entertainment, and they wired Jack in Chicago that they would meet him at the train in Gales burg. Jack was on the platform when they arrived and he bought $50 worth of tickets for their entertain ment and gave a speech to the school children, teachers (all white), who gathered at the depot to see the king of "heavies." To Win Quick as Possible. Jack did not have much time to do much talking, but he talked the few minutes the train stopped here. He l.?.koB the big fight July 4th serious ly and is much wrought up about a certain story published by aknocker who says Jack will let the "fight go fifteen rounds because of the moving pictures. "I want the public to know that T am going to beat Flynn just as soon as I can and the pictures are going to have nothing to do with it. I get o0,000, win, lose or draw, and that is enough money for a man in any fight. The pictures will be worth just a9 much, no matter what round I win m and therefore I am going to beat Flynn as soon as I am able to. "I have advised my friends to bet that the fight will not go fifteen rounds, and of course I believe I will win. I would not be advising them if I did not feel confident of beating Flynn within that time. "I am not underestimating the ability of Flynn, I realize that he beat Al Kaufman, who was, up to the time of his defeat In Kansas City, considered the best white fighter in the world. Flynn has grown heav ier since that time and he is strong, tough and a good puncher. I have fought him and when I beat him he was not near the fighter he Is today. I expect him to give me a good battle or I would not be training so harl and going to Las Vegas five weeks before the fight in order to be in the best of shape. I can beat third raters without training a day and I am training about seven weeks for this fellow. Will Retire a Champion. "Flynn is taking excellent care of himself and that Is going to have something to do with it. When a strong fellow like him takes good care of himself he gets into such shape that he Is hard to beat, but if I did not think I was the greatest fighter In the world I would not be MBD(dlaVHlhlI 11:15 a. ni. 2:45 p. in. 3:00 p. m. 6:05 p. in. 6:23 p. m. 7:45 p. m. 7:46 p. m. 8.35 p. in. 9:05 p. m.

"This train is going," yelled the conductor, and Jack flashed once more his golden laugh as he hopped the rear end of the observation car and swung his hat In the air, bid ding good-bye to the crowd aa the train pulled out and was on his way .to the training camp of the champion, on a ranch nine miles from Las Vegas. The Johnson party will reach the scene of the big conflict tonight at 6 o'clock and Jack will go immediate ly to his camp, where he will start training in a few days. He will spend the first three or four days tying out his racing machines on the good roads around the garden spot of New Mexico and see how powerful his cars are in climbing hills, before he starts the hard grind. In Good Shape Now. Jack looks much better than he iiri u-hpn he was here during the winter. He has reduced to almost his fighting weight. He has been training for a couplo of weeks, box ing in the gymnasium and doing road work. He is fit right 'now for an ordinary battle, but he is f.oing to be in his best fighting trim for the Teublo fireman. A wire from Las Vegas last night stated that John R. Talbot of Den ver, a sporting man, is there and likely will be appointed official bet ting commissioner. MASON NOTES.
