JAC0BSEN IS BACK;
Big Bill Returned to Rock Island
from Kewanee Pitcher Draws
an Indefinite Suspension.
Bill Jacobsen is back in our midst
again, but only for a short time. Bill,
as related a few days ago, was farmed
to Kewanee, but it seems that Mana
ger Conners got too many players on
his list to suit President Justice of the
Central association and he was ordered
to get within the limit. The result
was he had to let Bill go. The Isl
ander arrived home yesterday evening.
It is expected he will be farmed to
Battle Creek, where Billy Earle is hold
ing the job of manager. Billy has been
after Jacobsen for a long time and it
is expected that he will jump at the
chance to get him for the remainder
of the season.
Marshall Comingor, the Islander
pitcher who has been off the list for
the greater part of the season because
of the abundance of pitching talent at
Manager Tighe's disposal, has finally
drawn a suspension and he will be cut
off the payroll indefinitely. Carrying
him longer would have kept the club
above the salary limit and he had to
be disposed of. Several of his actions
at the time the club was trying to dis
pose, of him to the Monmouth club in
the Central association gave grounds
for his being suspended and President
Warren H. Reck notified him today
that his pay was to stop. Comingor
will probably be sold to Battle Creek,
in which case the suspension will be
Willie Hunter will leave this evening
for Jacksonville to join Manager Row
land's team. The Islander outfielder
was to have gone to Superior, but the
northern club was slow about sending
transportation for him and Hunter was
ordered to report at once to Jackson
ville. His sale is an optional one,
which gives Rock Island the chance to
repurchase him if it Is seen fit.
bled out of sixth place at the same
time. Peoria Is now second, and at
the rate the Distillers are going they
ought to continue to be a factor in the
race from now on. Davenport is now
below Dubuque, which was on the bot
tom less than a week ago.
The Central association will have a
midsummer meeting July 6, which is
of particular interest, in view of the
shaky condition of baseball at Bur
lington. Burlington has been going
badly ever since Ned Egan left the
town, and attendance has slumped till
it is a question whether the club will
be able to finish the season.
According to a Decatur paper tnt
deal by which Springfield gets Catcher
Hartley was forced upon Decatur by
Kinsella, who has virtual control of
that club by reason of having loaned
it three of its pitchers. Should he
withdraw these the Commodores would
be too poor to go out and buy new
one and would, in their present finan
cial condition, be practically forced
out of business.
Bloomington Bulletin: The Bloom
ington association has been considera
bly concerned over the small attend
ance here, and are afraid that Bloom
ington will make about the poorest
sort of a showing in this respect. The
matter of making it pay out is also a
serious one, and there Is likely to be
quite a deficit at the end of the season
if things do not pick up. Some of the
fans have been suggesting the putting
on of a few booster days, when the
stores might release their clerks for
the afternoon and everybody join in
to help out the attendance.

Refusal to Box in Presence of
Governor Leads to Unfavor
NEEDS OFFICIAL GOOD WILL
Assurance Again Given That There
Will Be No Interference by
State Executive. '
Reno, June 29. There was much re
joicing at Johnson's camp last night as
the result of the champion's splendid
workout in the afternoon. The pres
ence of Governor Dickerson i3 believed
to have been the source of considerable
inspiration to the negro. It was gos
siped about town today Dickerson
would make another trip to Moana
Springs in the hope of seeing Jeffries
Jell la Criticised.
The cool manner in which Jeffries
turned down a request for a boxing ex
hibition while the governor was at his
camp yesterday led to a great deal of
comment and some harsh criticism.
Jeffries' indifference to the disappoint
ments experienced by so many who
made futile trips to his training quar
ters to see him work was thought to
have passed the limit when an official
whose good will had been regarded so
essential to holding the contest out of
which Jeffries will make a fortune, was
Hii Picks Jeff.
Victoria, B. C, June 29. "Bob" Fitz
simmons, who arrived from Sidney last
night, picks Jeffries as the winner in
Monday's battle. He thinks the fight
will not go over 20 rounds. "Johnson
won't stand very long against the mas
sive strength and bear-like tenacity of
Jeffries, providing he is in shape," said
Kumar Knocked Out.
Reno. New. June 29. Rumors
that the Jeffries-Johnson fight would
be stopped by executive edict having
been given a complete knockout by
Governor Dickerson himself, inter
est shifted last night from the gov
ernor's hotel to the training camps.
Every one connected with the great
contest made it a point to visit Mo
ana Springs or Johnson s quarters
during the afternoon and not until
evening did the steady procession of
motor cars cease.
Tex Rickard breathed a sigh of
relief when his conference with Gov
ernor Dickerson was over. He had
the governor's personal assurance
ifcat there will be no interference.
"No one will ever know," said
Rickard, "what troubles I have un
dergone in preparing for this fighL
It seems to me that from the very
start there has been some kind of
organized opposition other than the
church federations. Rumors of all
kinds calculated to injure my inter
ests have been sent out."
Governor Dickerson seems deeply
interested in the fight preparations.
After his friendly chat with Rickard,
he determined to look in on the fight
ers and, if possible, to catch them at
work. Accompanied by Captain Cox
of the state police, who is here with
a squad of desert rangers to help in
keeping order, the governor Jumped
into an automobile and went rattling
away to the suburbs.
At Johnson's camp, where he ar
rived late in the afternoon, he caught
the negro champion just starting on
his best workout since coming to
Reno. Johnson boxed 12 fast rounds.
Four rounds with Al Kaufman op
ened the program and Johnson clev
erly eluded the rushes of his husky
opponent. "Kid" Cotton came up
next. Johnson went after him with
playful viciousness. In the fourth
round Jack tore himself loose with
one of his surprising displays of
strength. Twice he drove his left to
the head with terrific speed and force.
In ring parlance it was a "double
left hook," and ended the bout for
Cotton. He staggered and would
have toppled to the floor had not the
seconds caught and helped him to a
Johnson was not ready to quit
and called for Monahan, whom he
kept dancing around for two rounds.
Dave Mills was subjected to the
champion's fire for two more rounds,
then Johnson started back to the ho
tel. Governor Dickerson and Cap
tain Cox joined him and the three
went up to Johnson's room, where
they chatted for some time.
Jeff on Strike. j
Out at Moana Springs, Jim Jeffries
went on strike for the day. He ab
solutely refused to do any work be
yond a seven-mile jaunt In the morn
ing. Even the visit of the governor
failed to stir him to action.
To Battling Nelson, former light
weight champion, Jeffries was most
cordial when the latter visited the
Springs in the afternoon. Jeffries
looked upon Battling as a "great lit
tle fighter," to use his own words and
the pair strolled around the grounds
for a long time.
Nelson declared that he was amaz
ed by Jeffries fine condition.
Burn Picks Jeffries to Win.
San Francisco, June 29. Tommy
Burns, Hugh Mcintosh and Bill Lang,
the heavyweight champion of the An
tipodes, arrived yesterday from Aus
tralia on their way to Reno to see the
fight. Burns is strong with the opin
ion that Jeffries will win.
"Johnson may be game against lit
tle men like Ketchel and myself, but
he will show the streak of yellow
when Jeffries lands a few hard
punches to the stomach," said Burns.
"Jeff only has to be half as good as
in former years to beat the black man
and I look for the fight to end about
the 20th round with Jeff the victor."
Burns weighs 194.
"Although I have never seen Jef
