REALIZES HE IS IIP AGAINST REAL THING BY TIP WRIGHT. JOHNSON'S TRAINING CAMP, Ban Francisco, June 17.—Not for a minute has Champion Jack John son et up in his training. The fact that the most important battle in his career may be transferred to Reno, Nev., has not caused him to turn from the business of getting fit. It is evident that the champion la preparing for a tough, gruelling, Vgng drawn out battle. It is also f ident that he no longer doubts ■A ability of Jim Jeffries to "come bVtk." He did doubt this until about two weeks ago, but he doubts no longer. •> That Jeffries has come back does not worry Johnson.

But, on the other hand, Johnson did think for a-long time that Jef fries was bluffing, even after .the money was posted at Hoboken, and those famous articles of agreement had been signed. Johnson had a hunch that Jeffries would not fight. It was not until Jeffries' exhibition in San Francisco and Jack's friends told the champion how well the big fellow worked, that he began to believe the stories of Jreffries' wonderful condition. Since that time Johnson has fol lowed a line of training calculated to develop him to the highest point of defensive perfection. He intends to make Jeffries bring the battle to him. He wants to defeat the boilermaker with one of his pet blows—an uppercut to the jaw. violation of the state law relating to prize fighting. "If Webb tries to get out an In junction today we are prepared to fight it. If the matter is put over until next week by the court, then Webb cannot interfere, as he has no right to declare martial law by Stepping in and raiding a place tin til the mayor of this city has in formed lilm that he is unable to en force the law and calls upon Gil lette to help him." the examination need not bring "With Kings on Her Fingers and Bells on Her Toes," or "By the Light of the Silvery Moon," with them, for they won't get a chance to sing 'em.

LEWISTON, Idaho, June 17.—A persistent rumor to the effect that plans are being perfected by offi cials of the Harriman lines for early railroad construction Is going the rounds here today. Among the projected lines which it Is reported the company intends to construct soon is the building of the Lolo pass line from Lewiston to Butte, Mont., and also the comple tion of the Huntington-Lewiston main line. The Lewlston-Butte line will cost $16,000,000 and will be 350 miles long. IC O N TIN UED :t r o i [page one FAVORITISM affection for Ollie did not disappear. She had diamonds and money and soon got busy to get her former consort out from behind the bars at the state's prison. She was success ful, for after a few months Williams was paroled. How the trick was turned has not been Riven out. Now Ollie Williams is at Marie's place almost every day. He lives on a ranch on the Medical Lake line and visits the Taylor house. Do the police know this? It is presumed that they do, as the place is within a block or two of the police station. Marie Taylor uses her influence with the police department for all it is worth. In the last two weeks four of her girls have been down to see John T. Sullivan, chief of police, as to the oppressive methods of the Taylor woman, but there is no inter ference. After the girls had repeat edly reported the sale of liquor In the house the Taylor woman was finally made to pay a fine, which caused her to bo more careful in her operations. The girls in the house say that Sullivan has decreed that Marie Taylor shall have a mo nopoly of the business in her line and all efforts to open up a rival house have failed. The girls say that a member of the police department tips off to the Taylor woman everything that goes on at the police station, and that whatever he may forget or overlook is conveyed to her by two members of the detective force. The Taylor woman grinds the girls in her house down for the last penny possible, until they say that the price of tlmjj; ahame goes to enrich the landlady or with whoiiisovor she is sharing her ill gotten gains. Twenty-one dollars a week Is charged for a room, and in addition the girls pay for their own laundry, linen in their rooms and board. In addition thereto, they are forced to give up $15 a month to the police as a fine and to pay a doctor $2.60 a mouth for an examination fee. They are required to buy their dresses *.n one particular house on Riverside avenue, their jewelry at another and other necessities somewhere else, all on the order of the land lady. At very turn the girls are subject to a levy for graft and it was against this high handed sys tem that they went to Chief Sul- ' livan to protest. Nothing has been done. Marie Taylor still holds forth at the old stand and defies her girls to go on the streets, for her friends on the police force will see that they are arrested if this is done. The Marie Taylor case is a sam ple of Chief Sullivan's regulation of the social evil in Spokane.
