Jeffries Will Restore Honor to
HOW HE BECAME PUGILIST
Desire, to "Whip Big cgro Bully
Started Jeffries to First Place in
Ring Admits Fitzslmnions
Is the Xext Best.
GHICAGO, May S. (Special.) James
J. Jeffries, champion heavyweight of
the -world and greatest fighter tnat
ever lived in .the opinion of all-who
have met him in the ring, today de
clared that on Saturday night, when
he retires from the ring, he will re
store the heivywheight championship
to Bob Fitzslmmons.
"FItz whipped them all," said Jef
fries. "I .am the, only man who whip
ped him, and he' gave me the hardest
fight I ever had. I am determined to
quit the ring after I have finished my
theatrical engagement here, and then
the Cornlshman may have his title
Jeffries hands arc affected by a se
vere case of muscular rheumatism.
"It was Just my desire to whip a big,
burly coon that brought me into the
ring," said Jeffries today. "I was about
17 years old when this happened. Yes,
it was Jn 1S92. We .were-ln Los An
geles then and I was a husky kid, be
tween a man and a boy. They had a
big picnic out there this day, and ev
eryone in town was there, I guess
Spaniards, coons, Mexicans and I don't
know what sort wasn't there. Well,
in the afternoon, during the dances, I
saw a big coon in a mixup with a bunch
of fellows, and right away I wanted
to get In and fight him. The cops, put
a stop to the fight, anyway, and Grif-r
fin that was the coon's name, Hank
Griffin was told that I was looking
for his head. He was an amateur
heavyweight fighter. Some of the boys
fixed up a fight- which was to take
place In two weeks.
"Nine days before that fight I had
never worn a boxing-glove, but I
started then and trained until the
night of the fight, and from that even
ing on Mr. Griffin was a dead one."

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. May 8. The big Treasury deficit
continues to alarm Administration offi
cials, as well as Republican leaders In
Congress, even though It la believed the
deficit will be reduced $5,009,000 or ?10,
000,000 in tho next two months. Secretary
Shaw has gono over the condition -of the
Treasury with his financial experts and
Is himself satisfied that the deficit on
July 1. the beginning of the new fiscal
year, will not exceed mOOO.000. It is now.
In round numbers. J30.0CO.OOO. Some of
Mr. Shaw's advisors, however, think the
reduction will range anywhere from
$3,090,000 to ?7.O0.000. thus making the
deficit S3.000.000 to $25,000,000 when the
new year opens.
On May I. IDOi. there was a surplus In
the Treasury of $3,000,000. The year closed
with a surplus of $13,000,000. In the cur
rent year, however, the receipts are very
little above those of? a year ..ago. while
the expenditures are much greater. The
expenditures so far for this fiscal year
have exceeded the same period of last
year" by $31,631,771. a monthly average of
$3,000,000, while the receipts have in
creased over last year by only $1,313,251,
or an average of less than $150,000 a
Drawing Money From Banks.
This Is the first time in seven years that
the Treasury is confronted" with a large
deficit, and it Is feared that unless some
thing is .done the dcflclt for the next year
will be even greater. The heavy deficit
cannot be charged to extraordinary ex
penditures. The only unusual expendi
tures this year have been on account of
the Panama Canal, and the aggregate
amount so far spent on work on the
isthmus is less than $3,000,000. Tho
dcflclt Is made up by the aggregate ex
cess of expenditures over receipts, and
the greatest portion has been created by
the Postofffcc Department, though other
departments have contributed. But for
the fact that the Government had made
large deposits with National banks. It
might today be seriously embarrassed by
reason of the Treasury deficit. As It Is,
the deposits with . National banks have
been reduced from $1TO0.000 one year
and a half ago to less than $50,000,000
at the present day. and a call is now
outstanding for $27,000,000 of tho remain
ing deposits. This will reduce the de
posits with National banks to less than
$53,000,000. and unless Congress comes to
the rescue there will be still further
Where Can Money Be Saved.
It Is apparent that this Treasury deficit
must receive the attention or congress
next Winter: something must bo done to
reduce expenditures or Increase tho reve
nues. . The present policy cannot con
tinue indefinitely. But It is going to
bo a serious thing to tell what remedy
to aDnly- Our Navy Is eating up mil
lions of dollars every year; far more
than many public men deem expedient In
time of peace; yet there are others who
believe with the President that the Navy
should be materially strengthened by
the addition of big ships. The Army.
though It is comparatively small, is ex
pensive, but It Is difficult to see how
the appropriations' for this arm of the
service can be cut. True, tnere will do
a saving In the next session by reason
of the fact that there will be no river
and harbor bill, but this will be offset
by the clamor for and the probable pas
sage of an omnibus public building bill.
But even economy on public buildings
and the fact that there will be no river
and harbor bill will not, in the opinion
of Treasury experts, meet the condition
that exists. These men are of the opin
Ion that Congress must curtail the ap
propriations for rural free delivery- But
will Congress take the same view oi
this subject? It Is very much to be
doubted. It is a fact that the abandon
ment of the rural free delivery would go
a long way towards wiping out the deficit.
The rural free delivery service will cost
the Government $21,000,00!) for the present
year. Six years ago It started as an
experiment with an appropriation of a
few hundred thousand dollars. If the
present programme is carried out rural
free delivery will cost at least $25,000,-
000 next year. The expenditures of the
Postofllce Department exceed the reve
nues by between $15,000,000 and $16,000;
000 a year. It is officially stated that
but for rural free delivery there would
be no postal deficit, and the department
would be self-sustaining.
Dare Xot Touch Rural Delivery.
Notwithstanding this, it Is very much
to be questioned If Congress will ever
, abolish or even curtail rural free dellv
ery. It has proven to be-a great boon
for tne rural districts, and no congress
man with a rural district Is willing to
have rural free delivery sacrificed. Judg
ing by the clamor for this service. It Is
more sought after than any other favor
the Government departments can bestow.
In some Congressional districts there are
from 300 to 400 rural routes. These routes
mean much to the voters of those dls
trlcts, and any Congressman who votes
against rural free dcllvgry need expect
aeieat at tne next election.
It may be that Congress will look Into
the postal service to see If some way. can
be devised to make it self-sustaining. Al
most from the start it has been run at
a , loss, even before there was rural free
delivery. There may be means of chanjr
ing this order of things. If so. .it will
help a long way towards wiping out the
treasury deficit. But as for discontinu
ing rural free delivery, that is out of

Columbia River, the Army transport
Buford has reached Manila from Port-,
News was received in this city yes
terday that the Buford arrived at
Manila May . E. Tho intelligence was
somehow delayed along tho. cables. Tho
transpose carrying 850 members of the
Nineteenth Infantry, left down from
Portland at noon. April 1. It was the
afternoon of April 3 before she crossed
out to sea. after a brief stop at As
toria. After an uneventful but rather slow
passage, the Buford reached Honolulu
April 15 and departed for Manila the
same day. The entire voyage has con
sumed rather more time than was ex
pected. Practically every soldier on board
the Buford is known In Portland or in
Vancouver Barracks. The girls who
stood on the wharf and waved their
handkerchiefs as the khaki-clad sol
diers sang "Good-Bye, tittle Girl,'
Good-Bye," havo been growing anx
ious as the day for the Buford's ar
rival at Manila passed with no news
of her since leaving -Honolulu, but their
"minds may now be set at rest.

FERXDENE'S LOAD DELAYED
Settle Dispute Between Unions After
One Day or Idleness.
Not a sack of wheat was loaded on the
steamship Fcrndenc yesterday, because
of a dispute between the Longshoremen
and Gralnbandlers Unions. Late yester
day afternoon, however, Taylor, Young &
Co., the consignees of the vessel, patched
up the differences, and this morning the
chutes will be as busy as ever.
The longshoremen considered that they
were entitled to the work of trucking the
wheat from the big plies on the dock to
the chutes. At Montgomery No. 2, where
the Fcrndene is lying, the gralnhandlcrs
have always done this. Yesterday morn
ing there was an Incipient strike, and no
work was done all day. The longshore
men have special privileges .on the so
called "China liners." and they considered
the Fcrndene, which Is loadlns for Japan,
to belong to that category-
NEW PERRY RUNS ON TIME
Webster Successfully Operated at
Lower Alblna Without Cable.
Yesterday closed the first week of serv
ice of the new lower Alblna ferryboat
Lionel B. Webster. Not a mishap has
occurred since the ferryboat went on
regular duty, and she has been making
schedule time across the river all week.
Captain Foster has found no. difficulty In
bringing the boat Into her slips, although
the Webster, unlike the other Alblna
ferryboat Mason, has no cable to guide
her and the winds and currents have at
times been hard to overcome.
Before the Webster was accepted by the
County Commissioners it was declared
that a cable-free boat could not make the
diagonal trip across the river, but Fred
A. Ballin, the designer, and Mayor Will-
lams, pointed to her record while on the
Vancouver run and overcame the Com
