Johnson Toys With White Op
ponent Whose Only Defense
Is Butting With Head.
Firemau Helpless From First Round
lo Last Xegro Gains Plaudits
of Crowd Which at First
Favor Pueblan.
The Jack Johnson-Jim Flynn 45-round
fight for the heavyweight champion
ship was brought to a close in the
ninth round today by the state police.
Captain Fornoff. of the state force,
personal representative of Governor
McDonald at the ringside, declared that
It was no longer a boxing contest; that
It was a brutal exhibition and that
Flynn's foul tactics made Its continu
ance Inadvisable. He Jumped Into the
ring with his deputies and drove the
fighters and officials who followed him
to the corners. Referee Ed W. Smith
then announced that Johnson had won
and the fight was over.
Fraa Show No Ability.
Flynn displayed no ability in the
fight. He was cut about the face until
blood ran down his breast in a stream.
He was utterly helpless from the first
round and by the sixth was deliber
ately trying to butt the champion's
chin with his head. Time after time,
as Johnpon held him powerless in the
clinches, Flynn Jerked his head up
ward. Smith warned him repeatedly
but It did no good.
In the seventh he began leaping up
ward every time he could work his
head under Johnson's chin. Flynn's
feet were both off the floor time and
again and sometimes he seemed to leap
two feet into the air. Referee Smith
forced Flynn back toward his corner
a half dozen times. "Stop that but
ting." he would say. shaking his fin
Iter in Flynn's face. "Stop tt or I will
disqualify you."
"The nigger's holding me." Flynn
roared back. "He's holding me all the
time. He's holding me like this," and
he offered to Illustrate on the referee.
Smith evaded the blood-smeared arms
held toward him and waved the men
together again. ,
Repeated lVaralnara Vseleaa.
In a clinch in the eighth round Flynn
flung himself upward again and Smith
Jumped between them and warned him
once more. "Next time you do it I'll
disqualify you," he shouted at Flynn:
but changed his mind, for it happened
again and again In that round and re
peatedly In the ninth before the police
took a hand.
Through it all the champion was
smiling. He evaded Flynn's attack
with the utmost ease, whether the
Pueblo man led with his hands or his
head. Only once In the rounds did he
show any wish to end the fight and
yet ringside opinion was unanimous
that he could have put Flynn out a
any time he happened to fancy, wheth
er in the first or the seventh round.
The champion opened up only that
once, early in the fight, when Flynn
landed his only good blows, right and
left hooks to the Jaw, delivered our
ing a clinch. Johnson appeared net
tled at his own carelessness and
smashed a right uppercut through
Flynn's guard which rocked the white
man on his feet. Then the champion
smiled again and went back to the
monotonous chopping uppercuts in the
clinches, which reduced Flynn's face to
a bloody- mess in each round.
Jofcnaon Dealt Hit Hard
Apparently Johnson did not attempt
to hit hard. He contented himself with
a slow, coldly scientific chopping,
very blow finding its way through
the barricade of gloves and elbows be
hind which Flynn crouched. It was a
perfect exhibition of guarding and hit
ting In the clinches, as far as the
champion was concerned.
Not a blow Flynn started reached
him with any steam behind it. They
were smothered or tossed aside unless
Johnson chose to allow his opponent
to batter away at his stomach, smiling
the while over Flynn's shoulders. When
the fight was over there was not a
mark on Johnson's body, beyond a cut
Inside his lower lip which bled slight
ly for a few minutes.
Immediately after the fight Johnson
hastened to the betting commissioner
to collect his wagers on himself. He
drove from the ringside in his auto
mobile and was forced to address the
crowd before he could leave.
Flrn Not Hnrt.
Flynn was rushed to his camp from
the arena. He was not hurt, cuts and
bruises on his face being the only dam
age. ' He had nothing to say in defense
of the showing he made.
The fight was utterly lacking in in
terest. It was like a training bout at
Johnson's camp outside of the blood
Flynn lost, and the crowd accepted, the
action of the police with apparent Te
lief that the thing was ended.
Long before the end did come ring
side opinion seemed to favor the view
that Flynn was eager to be disquali
fied. He tu helpless as a child and
certainly made no effort to disguise
bis attempt to do with his skull what
his gloves could not accomplish.
The fight by rounds:
First Round. s
"Will you shake hands. Jack?"
queried Flynn. as he opened the battle
by rushing into a clinch. "No," replied
the black. Flynn kept In lose. but
Johnson easily avoided his attempts,
and flung a stiff left to the ear. The
champion pushed tils man across the
ring and hooked the left to the ear,
and a moment later flung a hard short
arm Jolt to the Jaw. Johnson smiled
constantly and fought with great care.
Klynn backed the negro against the
ropes, and the champion rewarded him
with a right that cut a deep gash un
Jer his left eye. Round all Johnson's.
Seeoaa Ronad.
As Flynn rushed Johnson simply
grasped him about .the shoulders and
aeld him at bay, all the while grinning
like an ape. The champion pecked at
:he fireman's face with light lefts and
is they clinched, uppercut twice heav
ily with rights to the Jaw. The cham
pion toyed with Flynn, twice more
shooting right uppercuts to the jaw,
one of which sent the fireman's head
The champion early indicated it was
to be a battle of words as well as of
blows, time and again exchanging his
usual repartee with the spectators.
Flynn's mouth bled as he took his
seat, much worsted during the three
minutes of fighting In this round.
TSlrrf Round.
Flynn cut abort a witty remark of
lohnson's by twice hooking his right
to the Jaw. This nettled the black and
he cut loose with shortarm uppercuts
to the Jaw. Johnson bled slightly
from the mouth as he emerged from a
mid-ring mlxup. but Flynn spat blood

Flynn rushed in close, and was met
with the customary rain of right end
left uppercuts. to the face. At that
time it seemed as' if the champion was
holding himself In check. He indulged
Flynn with, a few stomach taps, merely
trying to protect his body from Flynn's
attacks. Johneon constantly shoved
out his stomach and invited him to
blaze away at It, which convulsed the
spectators. Flynn elicited a great
cheer when he rushed the black to the
ropes and planted a solid left to the
Jaw. The round ended with Flynn's
face covered with blood. Johnson's
- Fifth Round.
Johnson came up nonchalantly, turn
ing his head to the spectators and hard
ly noticing his white antagonist. Flynn
banged away at the stomach, but this
time Johnson covered up and shot four
lefts to the face In quick succession,
varying it with a left uppercut to the
Jaw. Flynn, at close quarters, landed
half a dozen punches on the stomach,
but Johnson only smiled and again
made no apparent attempt to. protect
his "mid-section." Johnson aroused
the crowd to merriment by releasing
Flynn's hold and clapping his own
gloves together like a happy school
boy. "I can't fight while he's holding
me." shouted Flynn. -protesting to the
referee. The roijnd ended then with

and lefts to the face and at the same
time placed himself In a position : to
withstand Flynn's butting tactics.
Walt a minute, cried -the champion
to a spectator who had .snouted ror
him to end it. Flynn bled profusely
from the nose as Johnson beat a
healthy . tatoo with left and right to
that organ. Flynn failed to land a
glove on the champion, the negro's
defense proving impregnable. John

of perspiration on the champion as
he -took his seat. Johnson's round.
Eighth Round.
Flynn again tried to butt, and was
thrice warned. This round was much
like its predecessors, with Johnson up-
percutting and Flynn butting vicious

blood. Flynn was powerless In the
champion's hands, and for the tenth
time in this round was warned,- the
referee adding, "Once more, and I'll
disqualify you."
. Ninth Round.
Johnson held Flynn at arm's length
in an attempt to safeguard himself
against the -Colorado man's constant
butting. Flynn finally got in close,
jumped a foot In the air and. landed

negro's Jaw. Captain Fred Fornoff, of
the New Mexican State Police, realiz
ing that the referee seemed loath to

crowd vented Its wrath on Flynn.

Mexican Outfights Opponent Until
Final Slelee When He Collapses,
Claiming Foul Welch Runs
From Ring After Ruling.
LOS ANGELES, July 4. For 12
rounds Ad Wolgast and Joe Rivers
fought like catamounts in their light
weight championship battle at Vernon
arena this afternoon. In the 13th there
came a blow which landed low. and
both boys in an instant were sprawling
and writhing upon the floor. Wolgast
was declared the winner by Referee
Jack Welch, of San Francisco. Then
bedlam broke loose a demonstration
by 11.000 excited fans, the most re
markable feature of which was that it
was handled throughout its duration of
mnr than half an hour by fewer than
a dozen policemen without violence of
any sort.
Tonight Referee Welch stands dis
puted by Rivers and by thousands of
spectators In his decision that Wolgast
won by a knockout. The Mexican
fighter claimed a foul, and as he lay
whimpering In' his dressing-room half
an hour after the sudden end of the
mill, he displayed a dented aluminum
protector to prove his claim.
Wolgaat Also Claims Foul.
Wolgast said he also was fouled, but
tonight in a conference with Promoter
Tom McCarey, of the Pacific Athletic
Club, Tom Jones, his manager, said he
did not believe the foul inflicted upon
thn chamnion was intentional. Jones
said Wolgast stumbled over the feet of
Rivers as Rivers lay prostrate upon the
floor and fell upon his adversary s Knee.
Wolgast fainted and was carried from
his corner to his dressing-room.
As Wolgast was taken out the spec
tators Jeered and booed him. while they
struggled in frantic efforts to get into
the ring, where Referee Jack Welch
stood for a moment In hot altercation
with the angered manager and seconds
nf Rivers and then disappeared.
Welch remained only long enough to
reassert that Rivers' claim of foul was
unfounded: that he had counted ten sec
onds on Rivers before he had declared
Wolgast the winner, and that the gong
ending the round did not intervene De-
fore he had completed tne count, men
he went to his hotel. N
End Comes Suddenly.
MeCarev maintained silence. So did
Jones. But Joe Levy, the manager of
Rivers, repeated his offer made in the
ring to let the little men fight It out at
once. The end came so suddenly that
few among the thousands who saw it
rnul as-ren as to anything that
brought it about. Both boys, gory from
head to belt their faces puflsd and cut,
were fighting near the ropes on the
north side of the r ng when rtivers sua
Henlv nollansed. Wolgast previously in
the same round and in several other
rounds had struck Rivers ratner low,
and when Rivers went down there was
n. sudden shout of foul.
Tn an instant Wolgast was down on
top of Rivers, both groaning. Wolgast
rolled off Rlvers'Doay, nis ieaiurea cu
torted and his eves glazed.
Welch immediately began counting
and was still counting when he reached
down and helped Wolgast to his feet.
The arena bv this time was in an up
roar, and this fact, coupled with the
confusion engendered, gave ground for
dispute as to whether the gong enaing
the round had sounded while Welch
was counting and also whether weicn
haH rnallv counted off en seconds.
While the confusion was at Its height
Al Holder, timekeeper of tne Racine
Athletic Club, shouted that he had rung
the ennfi.
At this point. Rivers, with his face
disfigured by pain, scrambled weakly to
his feet and squared away reaay to i -
new the. battle. Welch waved him back
and said something that was not heard
by more than half a dozen people who
had - already scrambled through the
ropes Into the ring.
"That's -an outrage and It won't go
here." they exclaimed angrily to Welch.
The referee replied:
"It will have to go. It was fair," and
slipped out of the arena.
Welch said tonight:
"Wolgast was clearly the winner.
"Just before Rivers went down. Wol
gast had landed a heavy left to tho
body Just below the pit of the stomach,
and followed it with another smash
with the right almost to the same place.
Referee Defends Decision.
Neither blow was low. Rivers went

"The pictures will show that I was
right and that there was not a foul
blow struck In that fight."
Welch added that he did not declare
bets off. although a statement to thai
effect was shouted from the ring while
the confusion was at Its height.
'There is a state law against gam
bling," he said, "and officially I took no
cognizance of betting."

with regard to the disposition of the

displayed in the ring Just previous to

a deep gash. Rivers landed ten blows

each time got away without a return.
