7 WILLWIN FIGHT DOC REID OF CHICAGO, VETERAN HANDLER OF PUGILISTS, FA VORS COLORED MAN FOR BIG BATTLE. Poc Rcld, of Chicago, who has brought out Beveral of tho top-notch lightweights of the country and who hus Just taken the management of Walter Whitehead, If Duluth, when the latter was Btabbed and killed last winter, la of tho opinion that Jack jliiiH.n will have un easy time beat nn ui Jm JeffiieB when the two luavywclghtd get together on Monday ftftrrnoKn In the Reno arena. In a letter to a friend ut Duluth, Roiil snys: "I unl of the opinion that Johnson with a clear field und no fa vors, will win in n walk. Thin may Hound strange In view of tin? fart that Jeffries Is 10 to 6 favorite. How Jef. fries ever was put on tho long end of Budi odds Is past me, unless the rail birds Intend to swing over find plunge on the black man at tho last minute with the Intention of cleaning up. "Sentiment, race prejudice ami some pretty good preBS stuff from thai trio of past masters In spreading tht pake (Corbett, Choynakl and Ilerger) may have a great deal to o with It. Jeffries six or seven years ago un doubtedly was the greatest fighter th world has ever known and the way he went through such men as Corbett vhiirkev. Ituhlln and Fitzslmmon? nroved to sportdom that he was jus lifted in retiring because of no more worlds to conquer. , Hut that was six years ago and one must consider that In that time he lias uractlcall yllved a life of lux my and idleness, smoked cigarette? luihltuallv. drank dally, kept any kind of hours and paid no attention whatever to his physical condition This kind of life generally is mon severe on the constitution of a man, who always has kept himself In tlx pink of condition previously than of one who has never been accustomed la training methods or physical cul ture. And yet they say that he 1. nt nresent in the finest possible con dition an athlete could get into. In other words they have In the last four or five months by some myste rious process rebuilt all of the mus cular tissue that the last six years of lax living have wasted. They have restored his breathing apparatus tr Its original strength. Ry the same miraculous system his old time rug gedness and endurance have been re turned to him. It is too much. "Tommv Ryan, undefeated middle weight champion of the world, retired more recently than Jeffries. Can you imagine him getting Into condition for Stanley Ketchel? I see Tommy quite frequently. lie looks fine nnd keens himself In falrlv Eood shape by boxing two or three rpunds dally. He still talks fight, but what's the use? Any real good lightweight would make Mm oult. "At that, we ran hnrdlv blame them fr digging up Jeff. Some one had to go on the firing line and ns his wonderful record as a ftsrhter has nev 'r been forgotten he was thrown as a straw to the promoters and they grab bed. . X "Johnson, on tho fhfr hnnrl. Is con ceded hv nenrlv vervone as belntr the cleverest big man that the ring has ever known, not even excepting Cor bett. He Is an exceptionally strong man nnd seldom has been In anything but the best condition. He Is natur ally tough and rugged nnd Is possess ed of confidence Impossible to shake. This latter trait 1s sometimes dctrl mental to a fighter as It often develops into swelled head. This dlnge. how fver, I practical and fairly level hend rd and Is not Inclined to underestimate anyone he meets, as his cautious style f'f fighting Indicates. "Well, they are going to fight to Mease the public nnd the public pays the freight. Let the best man win." RECEIPTS OF BIG FIGHTS.

TICKERS MUST WAIT FOR OFFICIAL TRACK RETURNS Cincinnati, June 29. Evidence of a struggle between the management of the Lntonla, Kentucky, race track and the operators of handbooks and other outside betting agencies In this and olher cities was revealed In an order promulgated by tho track officials. Tho order provides that no race re suits shall be Hashed from tho tracV over the telegraph wires until aftei the official result has been announced This means a delay of practically flvi minutes after each race Is run before the news of It can go from the course It is stated that the track officials have discovered that men who Inteiv to wager heavily In the Tarl-mutm machines at the track have been dls mindod from this eourso and induced to place their money with agents tho outside interests who offer them better odds than the mutuels show thus reducing the play In the ma chinos and cutting into the track's In come. These agents have been "flash Ine" the results of the rnce, also, It I said, and there are reports that false returns have been sent from the track Detectives havo been employed to keep the handbook agents away from ih hettlne contingent at the track and by delaying the announcement of w.Holts It is honed by the track man agemcnt that activities of the outside operators will be further dlseouragou Aew London, Conn., June 29.

The advance guard of the visitors has already put In an appear ance and early tomorrow morning the main army of university men and their friends will arrive on special trains from New York, Iloston, Hart ford, New Haven and other points.
