NELSON IS iT IN
Dane Seems to Have Acquired

MANAGER APPEARS INSANE
Jeffries Arrives in San Francisco and
Says He Will Referee the Go
"With Britt Xext Sat
SAN FRANCISCO. Sopt. 7. (Staff Cor
respondence.) Tbls town is fight-crazy.
On the streets, in the cafes, at the the
aters, in fact no matter -whore you go
there the morits of the Brltt-Nolson fight
is the topic of conversation. Never in the
history of ail the fistic events pulled off
in this place has there ever beon sudh &
discussion pro and con as there is over
the coming Saturday event.
Coupled with the question as to "which
will win Is the question whether Manager
Nolan, Nelson's manager, is Insane. If
you "wore to take a poll of the situation
tonight, the verdict -would be that Nolan
is Insane and instead of being a manager
of a fighter he should be in a stralght-
jaoket and In the insane ward of some
institution for incurables.
Jim Joffrles did not reach here until
after 11 o'clock and up till the time of
his arrival It looked as If Britt and Nelson
-would ontor the ring without a referee.
The b4g ex-bollermaker, brawny and as
indifferent as ever, arrived on the late
train from Los Angeles and declared that
He was here for the purpose of reforeelng
the flght. From the way things look lato
tonight nothing but a crazy act on the
part of Nolan can prevent Jeffries from
officiating Saturday afternoon.
Keeps Back the Betting:.
The squabble over the referee has kept
the betting back and not over $9000 has
been wagered on the event so far. Thero
were a few scattering bets made tonight
at 0 to 10. with Nelson at the short end.
Tb betting angle should not discourage
the Britt followers, for this is due to
countless crazy things which Nolan ha6
done during the last few days.
I was out at the Nelson camp this af
ternoon. Nelson is training at a road
house called Joe Millet's, and if the
crowd there this afternoon is a fair
amie of the crowd that has been fol
lowing the Dane during hie training, he
is sure in bad company. Nelson did not
look the part of a lighter prepared to go
a long route. He Is down to weight, but
he haa the appearance of having reached
that point in a jump.
Larry Sullivan was with me thh after
noon. Sullivan Is a pretty fair judge of
human nature, and after he saw Nelson
go through a few of his ""gym" stunts he
shook his head and declared that the CW
cagoan did not look good. There is noth
ing but consternation in the Ncteon camp,
while from the Britt camp there la noth
ing but confidence.
The Foolishness of Nolan.
There would have been nothing of this
Jeffries quibble but for Nolan. Instead of
Nolan being a manager of a lighter, he
should be tending bar, a calling which I
understand he Is moft fitted for. If some
one tomorrow .should swear out a com
plaint for insanity, he would be convicted
without the aid of an expert jury. A
month ago he declared that Nelson would
light Britt on the utraet. in private or In
public, with or without a referee. Now
he is so suspicious that he would have
the young goslings that run around the
garden of his training quarters arrested
for catching llies.
Mrs. Nolan doos the cooking for Nel
son, and Nolan has gone so far as to
have a scientist tost the food that the
Dane taats, so fearful is he that some
one will drop a bit of poison in Nelson's
No Side Bet Placed.
All the advance talk of the side bet
of Jl 0,000 is a myth. The bet looked
good In print, but I learned today that
neither of the principals has come
through with the money. In fact, as
late as August the purse was divided
Of and 40. This agreement, although
signed in August, is dated Soptember 8.
This proves more than anything else
that the fight that Nolan is making Just
at this time is merely for the purpose
of "splitting the pot." He may gain
this, but it Is doubtful. W. G. M.
Responds to Voice of People.
SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. 7. Fully .de
termined to referee the Brltt-Nolson con
test .next Saturday. ex-Champion James
J. Jeffries arrived from Los Angeles to
night. "I have accepted the offer of $1000 to
referee the contest between Britt and
Nelson and I will be the third man in
the ring when the men meet and that is
all there Is to it," said Jeffries as he
stepped off the train. "1 understand that
Nolan fears that Nelson will not get a
square deal. But the public has demand
ed that I officiate, knowing full well that
I will .give both sides a square deal. If I
suspect that the least bit of crookedness
is going on I will call the fight off in an
George Slier, the veteran referee, who
has been spoken of as an umpire in the
event that Jeffries could not be finally
decided, on, arrived from Chicago today,
accompanied by the. father of Battling
Nelaon. They later went to the training
quarters of Nelson, whom they hope will
be the victor dn Saturday's contest. Slier
declared that "he was not anxious to
referee the fight and spoke as though
he would not take the place even if it
wore offered him.
Nolan Declares Against Jeffries.
SAN FRANCISCO. Sept- 7. Nelson
has done the hardest sort of work up
within the past day or so, keeping up
his grind, in fact, until yesterday evening
Today he took it somewhat easier. Britt
let up in his extremoly heavy work sev
eral days ago. cutting out all boxing
and his swim in the surf after his daily
-work. Nolan, Nelson's manager, said
this afternoon In regard to the referee:
"If they try to force Jeffries upon uh
there will not be any flght; that's all
thore is to It I've conceded everything
else to the Brltts and I do not intend
to concede this referee matter.
"I am even more determined than be
fore for I have received many telegrams
from friends informing me that the sure
thing men all over the East are trying
to get In bets on Britt. That-looks bad
"I don't know what was said In that
Delaney telegram to Jeffries which Willie
Britt dictated and which caused the big
fellow so suddenly to abandon his de
mand for $2000. For all I know. It might
ave guaranteed Jeffries ?1000 If he would
come and serve. I intend to stand on
Notwithstanding Nolan's stubborn stand
in the matter, no. one thinks at this time
that the flght will be called off.

today until September 13. to enable the

Christian Lundeberg. the Swedish Pre
mier, who is one of the commissioners,
said that an agreement had beon entered
into to make no communication regarding
the proceedings of the conference. It
is evident, however, that the negotiations
have reached a point which necessitates
consultation by the commissioners with
their respective governmonts. Premier
Michelsen, of Norway, will remain here.
No special session of the Riksdag will
be convened, and this fact Indicates thit
the conditions submltU-d by the Swedish
commissioners are unalterable, and that
an amicable settlement will depend upon
the action of the Norwoglan Storthing.
It is probable that the Norwegians In
sisted on the formulation of an arbitra
tion treaty as the basis of further nego
tiations. The Swedish government, it Is
believed, will never agree to this, as it
would moan the arbitration of questions
arising from present conditions and the
recognition of the sovereignty of Norway.

Broadway Theater. With the excep
tion of a few minutes, during which

others, the sessions today were secret.

WOOSTER, O., Sept. 7. (Special.) Cap
tain Taggart and his wife enacted In
court today a family quarrel scene to sat
isfy Mr. Sterling, the attorney, and both
found plenty of fun in doing it. It did
not seem at all as If the two had been
combating each other for weeks, and stor
ies of their troubles had gono all over
the world. And It was a very nice por
trayal of a family "ocrap," too that is,
as far as it went. The scene was sup
posed to be a duplicate of that on the
night of June- 30. 1&D8, when Captain
Pooro acted as escort home for Mrs. Tag
gart. Captain Taggart seized his wife by the
arm and tried to scowl. The wife tried
to jork her arm away and to look dag
gers. In this attractive "struggle" the
sleeves of' her waist wero supposed to
become torn. But somehow or other they
wouldn't tear. Neither would the scowl
ing or the dagger-looks bear up under
the strain. It all wound up In an out
break of merriment, the Captain and his
wife seemingly being In the best of humor.

tion were then again gone over. Finally
the scene was actually enacted.

Captain Taggart was re-examined at
