THE MORNING OREGOXIAN, FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 8, 190D. NELSON IS iT IN GOOD CONDITION Dane Seems to Have Acquired . "the Weight at a Jump. MANAGER APPEARS INSANE Jeffries Arrives in San Francisco and Says He Will Referee the Go "With Britt Xext Sat urday Night. 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 broakfast food. 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 instant." 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 to me. "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 my rights." Notwithstanding Nolan's stubborn stand in the matter, no. one thinks at this time that the flght will be called off. TEA3I ZVIATCHES WITH RIFLES Marines Win Regimental Contest.

Turner Outclasses Long:. 'SACRAMENTO. Cal.. Sept 7. "No con test," was the decision given in the sec ond round of the fight tonight between Rufe Turner, of Stockton, and Louie Long, of Oakland. All bets were de clared off. Long was so clearly out classed that his seconds threw up the sponge when Turner sent him to the floor with a terrific smash to the stomach. EVIDENCE ISIS IS GOME SCANDINAVIAN CONFEREES HOME FOR ORDERS. GO Norwegians Propose Arbitration, Which Swedes Reject Norway" Increases Force on Frontier. KARLSTADT. Sopt. 7. The conference of the delegates of Norway and Sweden, appointed to discuss the dissolution of the union of Norway and Sweden, adjourned today until September 13. to enable the delegates to return to their respective capitals and confer with their govern ments. The result of their deliberations is uncertain. 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. The Norwegian government has. within the last few da3s, concentrated a oon sidorable rrtimber of troops fin the fron tier and has removed other troops near the frontier.

RE-ENACT THEIR QUEL TAGGARTS GIVE DRAMATIC DIS PLAIT FROM REAL LIFE. Appear in Good Humor and Might Have Made Up Taggart At tacks Wife's- Lawyer. 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. Psychological Moment Lost. Critics declared It might have been a psychological moment for Judge Eason. He might have loaned forward and or dered: "Kiss and make up." Thore were many in the courtroom who would have been willing to wagor It would have been the last of the Taggart divorce case right there. "Mrs. Taggart never struck your was asked. "No, she pimply tried to get away. I did not drag her down the stairs. I told her we would have an understanding be fore she went upstairs, and took her by the arm and wc walked down the hall." he continued. The details of the alterca tion were then again gone over. Finally the scene was actually enacted. TagarL Denounces Smyser. Captain Taggart was re-examined at great length upon the letters that passed between himself and his wife. Speaking of one written by Mrs. Taggart to the War Department through her attorneys, asking the department to take action for a court-martial on Taggart, the witness said: "It was the most scurrilous and dirty letter ever written by a human being who claimed to have a onclencc." "You know. Mr. Smyser." said Tag gart, "that you said you would take ad vantage of your position as a Congress man and your Influonco with the War Department to bent me in this lawsuit." "No, I did not ever say that." answered Smyser, vehemently. "Well, Mrs. Taggart said you did," re plied Taggart. Not Trying Suits as Congressman. After recess a copy of the letter was produced and read to Taggart. He looked at the letter-book and said: "There la no signature." "I signed it," said Smyser. "It is not customary to put the signature In a copybook." "Did you sign It as a Congressman?" "No I didn't try lawsuits as a Con gressman." "Well, It .looks very much that way," said Taggart. Fred Dow. the detective, who yesterday testified against Mrs. Taggart, was mer cilessly scored by police officers from Cleveland today. Arguments will begin in the case some time tomorrow and continue over Satur day. Czar at Thanksgiving Service. ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 7.

HE HAD CONFESSED CRIME Fierce Gale Fans Flames and Quickly Ends Agony Husbnnd of Negro's Victim Starts Fire Great Crowd. FORT WORTH. Tex., Sept- 7. A spe cial to the Record from Waxahatchie tells of the burning tonight of Steve Da vis, a young negro, who confessed to out raging Mrs. 8. P. Norrls, aged V). last Sunday night. A mob consisting of Si00 persons' tied the negro to a piece of gas pipe that had been set in the ground, piled fagots around him and set the mass on Are. The sufferings of the negro were of Bhort duration, owing to the fierceness of the fire, which was fanned by a gale of wind which blew across the prairie. The husband of the woman Is said to have set the match to the tinder and started the blaze that consumed tho negro. After waiting an hour In order that the negro might bid goodbye to his brother and sister, Davis was chained to the stake. He pleaded and struggled vio lently. A match was applied to the huge pile of lumber and brush saturated with oil, and the negro's struggles and moan ing ceased In five minutes. The fire burned SO minutes after the ap plication of the match and nothing but embers and charred remains of the negro marked the spot of the awful tragedy. The mob was comparatively quiet and soon dispersed. The bones and ashes of the victim of the mob's fury were gathered up by his brother and sister. Davis was arrested last Tuesday and taken before the woman, who at that time was not sure it was he. She had been desperately ill. Today he was again taken before the woman, who on sight of him fainted. When she recovered she. Identified him, and his fate was sealed. The negro finally confessed, detailing the crime. This Is the third negro that has been burned in this section of Texas within a short time. One of these waa lynched at Sulphur Springs, and another at Waco. FOUR PATROLMEN ARE UP Charge Against Three Dismissed, Fourth Suspended Thirty Days. Four patrolmen were on the mat before the police committee of the Executive Board, yesterday afternoon, the charges against them all being dismissed with the exception of one. who was merely sus pended for one month without pay. The charges were ignored against Pa trolman E. Burke, whose beat Is on East Burnslde and East Third streets, and who waa accused by Bernard Gobbl with bru tal conduct while arresting him. July 22, for riding his wheel on the sidewalk; Jo seph Scallon. charged with extortion by John Muchow. a saloonkeeper, of 333 First street, and H. A. Galbralth, whom Ed ward Stone, proprietor of a wood-sawing outfit, claimed had been brutal to him in connection with making an arrest for violating a city ordinance by leaving his machine on the street, and afterward when forcing him to move on while he was waiting on a corner. The testimony against the officers did not prove suffi ciently strong. In the estimation of the committee, to Justify any stringent ac tion, hence all the charges of misconduct were dismissed. In the case of Policeman R. J. Ellis. who was suspended August 20 for not being present at the fire which destroyed the State-Room Inn rooming-house, near the Fair grounds the morning previously. It was shown that there were extenuating circumstances connected with his absence, hence he was let off with a suspension f 30 days, without pay. tOW EXCURSION KATES TO THE EAST On sale August 24 and 25, also Septem ber 7, S. 9. 10, 15 and 17, the Rock Island Railway will sell round-trip tickets to K astern points at greatly reduced rates.
