I quote from It: After wearing his opponent down until he practically h-vd no strenKth left with which to make an adequate defense much less to put up an offensive style of battle. Frankle Conley ruHlied In and gave Monte Atteil suh a terrific drubbing In the forty-second round of their scheduled forty-five-round fight at Vernon this afternoon that the San Francisco boy was unable to arise when knocked to the floor with a ful right awing that caught him on the back of his head. Attel was lying un conscious upon nil back sprawled at full length and did not move when his seconds lifted him into their arms and carried him to hi corner. - Should Be Made Felony.' - "If these contests were not prize fights, . then the. bistorlo battle between Heenan and Bayers was not one. I have no doubt that the coming contest between Jeffries and Johnson will be a repetition of the brutality mentioned In the foregoing fights, only on larger scale. "If 'sparring exhibitions;' as permitted by our laws, makes fights where men are beaten Into insensibility and their faces 'cut to ribbons' are lawful, acts then It Is time that the legislature should Interfere and make such exhibitions a felony. (Such con tests are prize fights not permitted by the law and should be punished as such. Those who engage in them are prize fighters and make their living by fighting eaob other for prises or rewards. "The whole business is demoralizing to the youth of our state, corrupts our morals, is offensive to the senses of a great ma jority of our citizens and should be abated as a public nuisance and the offenders sun- lanea. Froaecntlon Is Alternatire. "If the court upon your petition refuses to grant the relief prayed for therein and fermlts the parties Interested to proceed as advertised by them, then I desire you on be half of the people of the state to gather all ' evidence possible and if the contest is car ried out as advertised and the parties fight ' for a purse or for a reward and inflict upon - each other bodily injury then you are to cause the arrest of the principals and those -' Interested with them In the promotion of the fight and try them on a felony charge for violating section 412 of the penal code. Yours truly, .i. N. aiLLETT." Rlrkard Plainly Nettled. After attending a conference rate today with Attorney General Webb, Rlekard said 'that no action for the removal of the ftgtit would be taken until Webb hands down a decUtcm as to the legality of holding the match here. Webb, Itickard said, promised the opinion In two days. It will give Webb's opinion as to the practicability of opposing the fight under the statutes quoted by the governor In his letter of in struction. " Rlekard was plainly nettled at the unex pected turn of events and the "eleventh hour" pronouncement of the governor as tie termed it, waa a most unpalatable morsel. '"I am sick and tired of all this fooling," be -added, "and I am willing to throw up the sponge so far as bringing off the match In the state of California is concerned. I have already expended $3,000 all of which will be a dead loss. ' "Why Governor GUlett should wait until this late day In deciding that he would stop the fight, particularly in view of his ac-. 'credited statements in the. past that under no circumstances would he Interfere, is in conceivable. Already excursion parties have left different parts of the world end are en route hither. It was only yesterday that I received an order from Canada requesting that 1,000 seats be reserved. I do not know what caused the governor's sudden change of mind, but presume the pressure brought upon him by the many church federations baa had Its effect. - "A tnaas meeting of 100 prominent busi ness men of this city will be called to morrow for the purpose of having the gov ernor rescind his order, but 1 doubt if any good will come Of it "One thing Is. certain, San Francisco and the state of California will lose the greatest opportunity of a lifetime. . "I am prepared to shift the scene of bat tle at a moment's notice and my plans in this respect will be made publlo as soon as a conference between all directly In terested is had. I prefer to see Salt Lake get the match, but Reno and Ely, Nev., Stand an excellent show." Jeffries la Creetlallea. BEN LOMOND. Cel., June 15.-J. J. Jef fries, when spprised of the action of Oov ernor Gillett stld: "I can't believe it. I do not think that the governor would do that after he has repeatedly said that he would not inter fere. I shall continue my training until officially Informed that the fight is oft.' Jeffries appeared crestfallen when told v that there waa no ooubt about the gov ernor s intention to stop ise iigni.
