Queenstown, Oct. 17.?When Jas. J. Jeffries, the American heavyweight ougilist, who Is a passengor on the Steamer Lusl.iana, bound for New York after a period of training in a suburb of Paris, heard of Jack John? son's victory over Stanley Ketchel at San Francisco, he said that this in no wise would affect his plans. Ketchel, he added, was only a middle-weight, und not by any means the best of the middle-weights. "Ketchel," continued Jefferies, "is trying to feed himself up to make the heavy weight class, but it will only weaken him. Johnson isn't much of a fighter and he never met a good man. His tk?ht with Burns was no test. Burns is a newspaper fighter. "1 can only hope," Jefferies went on, "that Johnson will cover my money. I wouldn't fight him if I did think I could beat him.

MEETING. \ Large Crowd Attended But It Yet Remains to be Seen If the Nec? essary Money Can be Raised. The mass meeting in the Opera House Sunday afternoon in the in? terest of the Y. M. C. A., which it Is proposed to organize, was well attend? ed, not leas than five hundred persons being present. The meeting was called to order by Mr. S. H. Edmunds, president of the preliminary organization formed sometime ago, who stated the object of the meeting and introduced Rev. D. C. Huntington, Inter-State Y. M. C. A. Secretary for North and South Carolina. Mr. Huntington spoke in general terms of the work of the Y. M. C. A., the field It occupies and the need for an association In every town or city of any size. He emphasized the fact that 'the success of an asso? ciation is largely dependent upon the right start being made and that the most necessary thing is the possession of a commodious and well equipped building. He said he felt sure that Sumter could afford to erect a build? ing and that it is now up to the peo? ple of Sumter to say whether they are to have an association for the young men. Mr. W. B. Keys, who has had ex? tensive experience in Y. M. C. A. work and knows both from experience and observation the good the Y. M. C. A. does, was called on for a speech. He made a brief but interesting talk that impressed all who heard it, that Sumter is losing by not having an association. Mr. C. Capers Smith also made a brief address. He spoke of the de? mand for an association that comes from the boys and young men of the city, the ones who need an associa? tion, the ones who will receive the greatest benefit. When the meeting was dismissed the executive committee met for a conference with Mr. Hungington to map out a plan of campaign to raise the funds for a building.
