report of the fight between Conley and At
tell, which took pla.ee near Los Angeles, on
February 23. 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-
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
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."

"I can't believe it. I do not think that
