Kaufman Takes Rap at Johnson,
Whom lie Insist Takes Too
Many Liberties With Truth
In Kecent Interviews.
When Jack Johnson switched the
verbal shift from "so kt a imputa
tion" to "go get the money." replying
to Flynn's demands for consideration,
fight fans prepared for another slum
ber. It wis Inconceivable to think
anyone could be Induced to guarantee
Jack JJ0.90O for rooking the ruehlo
fireman to sleep. But when Jack Cur
ley turned promoter and agreed to
finance the bout. giving Johnson what
he asked for. they be it an to trim their
peepers. Mild surprise turned to won
der and then to laughter.
-Jack and Jim might draw a Cor
porals ituard In a real lire flitht town,
but only a 'boob' could figure them lur
Inr real money to Nevada," they rea
soned. No matter how right may be the
reasoning of the fans. It Is. neverthe
1ms. true that they scouted the Idea
cf Tes Rlcksrd offertnr Oans and Nel
son I4J.T1S for their Goldfleld engare
tnent In 10. The sam- promoter
booeted the stskes to HOI.eOO when
Jeff and Johnson were looklnir for an
antral. Consternation relrned In fltht
dom. It was freely predicted that no
such amount would be taken up. But
It was and then some.
Thus It has been all thronch the
game. Although present Indications
point to a 10-oent bouse If Johnson
and Fir tin meet. It Is a fact that In
every Instance where seemingly fabu
lous purses baTe been nunc up the
promoters have come out top side up.
Whether precedent will stand the test
In this affair remains to be seen.

They're all handing Johnson a few
nowadays. Latest Is Al Kaufman. The
California riant takes a fall out of
Jack for trifllne; with the truth. Al'a

TRACT BACK CXS1GXED.
rublio Sentiment May Demand That
Former Portland Heaver Get
Price He Is Worth to Xaps.
Vean Gregg was a Spokane visitor on
Tuesday and showed a contract he had
Just received calling for $1000 and not
3i00. as Somers was heretofore report
ed to have offered. Gregg declared he
would shoot It back unsigned and ab
solutely would not come down one dol
lar on his demand for $5000.
Bill James, another holdout Cleve
land pitcher did not fare well as an In
surgent. He refused to sign the orig
inal 11? contract offered him and Is
now In receipt of a new one calling for
$300 less. Also a sarcastic letter from
the Nap management.
Gregg's case, however. Is different
In that public sentiment will demand
that Gregg be appeased. It may not
result In future favors to Gregg and In
the long run may work him harm, but
for the present it looks as If Somers
will have to come through or lose the
support of his fans.
"Deacon" Van Buren, Sacramento
outfielder, was a visitor in the city
yesterday and Van Joins the chorus in
declaring that Gregg Is entitled to
$5000. "If he wss a free agent don't
you think New York would sign him
for that amount?" queried Van. Of
course. Van forgot to figure that It
cost the Naps originally close to $4500
to purchase Gregg and get him In the
East, whereas In the query case Gregg
would be only a salary Incumbrance.
"So far as merit Is concerned."
Gregg Is the greatest young pitcher In
baseball." added Van Buren. "No man
ever made such a record as the former
Portland heaver. What's 1S000 to the
Cleveland club, anyway? It can make
that much In a single Sunday adver
tising the fact that Gregg Is to pitch."

No. TS Harry P. Scaafley.
HARRT SCHAFLET broke Into the
Pacific Coaat League circuit as
second baseman of the Oakland team
under the veteran, Pete Lohman. in
1104, and was easily one of tbe stars
of the circuit that season.
He was purchased by Walter Mc
Credle for the Portland team In 1905
and that year he gained the distinction
of pulling off an unassisted triple play,
one of the few such plays executed.
This play was made on the Vaughn
street ball grounds June 8. 1905, and
was accomplished against tbe Seattle
club. Jack Walters, right Aelder of
Seattle, was on second, and Russ Hall
cn first, with Big Bill Kemmer at bat
and none out, on the day Schafley
gained National fame. Kemmer laced
a hard liner over second base which
Schafley speared with one hand, and
touching second he retired Walters.
Hall, who had raced for second at tbe
crack of the bat, could not turn quickly
enough and the Portland second base
man completed the unassisted triple
play before any of the fans In the
stands really realised what had taken
In the Fall of 1105 the Portland
team, apparently out of the race, was
a poor third, and Walter McCredie ex
changed Schafley and Ats to Los An
geles for Tim Flood and Jud Smith,
both of whom bad been suspended by
President Bert, and In that way the
Angels beat the Tacoma club out of
the championship. Los Angeles waa
leading by a small margin at tbe time
the trade was made, and Mike Fisher

other Suggestion of Xegro's.
CHICAGO, Jan. 17. (Special.) That
Jim Jeffries refused to take punishment
and quit cold In his battle at Reno. Is
tbe latest assertion of Jack Johnson.
Further. Johnson says he will give
Jeffries 110.000 and one year to train
If he will sign for one more bout. And
to prove that he means business, John
son will give Jeffries $500 a week to
spar with him In exhibitions providing
Jim turns down the fight offer.
The occasion of Johnson's latest turn
Is tbe remark credited to Jeffries that
Johnson put over a frame-up in the
Stanley Ketchel bout In San Francleco.
Johnson allows that Ketchel could have
beaten Jeffries and it was only the
gameness of the late middleweight
wonder that kept him from stopping
Ketchel In Che early rounds.

Three-Cushion Expert la Trim for
Proposed Championship Match.
Henry Soloman, Portland's great
three-cushion billiard champion. Is dis
playing great form In his practice play
preliminary to his proposed match with
Joseph Carney in Denver for the cham
pionship of the world.
In practice last night Soloman an
nexed a high run of eight billiards and
on Tuesday night went as high as nine
three-cushion shots in one inning, run
ning out 25 in about 15 innings. The
high run In the Carney-De Oro world's
championship match last week waa
seven, De Oro holding the record.
Local billiard followers of the
Soloman style of play believe he has
an excellent chance of winning tbe
world's championship if Carney con
descends to accept his challenge for
a match within six weeks either in
Denver or some Eastern city. Soloman
defeated Carney and won the Coast
championship on the only other oc
casion upon which they met.
