D1IEI SEEKS CARD
Will Not Box Jack Johnson
Until He Grows.
IS NOT A NEGRO-HATER
While White Men Wait and Fame
Is Great No Man of Color
Will Help the Gate,
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 6. (Special.)
Jack O'Brien will not connent to box Jack
Johnson, whose manager, Zick Abrams,
placed $2500 with the sporting editor ol the
Bulletin Tuesday to bind a match. O'Bri
en's Pacific Coast representative. Jack
Cribbins. sent a statement this morning
which will be read with interest. He says
O'Brien Is not a negro-hater and will fight
Johnson, but not until he has done some
thing to make him a card. Cribbins does
not believe that the public is anxious for
such a match, for he writes: -'Mr. O'Bri
en's future matchmaking is left to my
discretion, and I can assure you I will not
consider Abrams methods of advertising
his dark one, whUe I have offers for con
tests with men like Marvin Hart, Tommy
Ryan. Sam Bergcr and Twin Sullivan.
"I cannot see where Jack Johnson's last
performances with men like McVey or
Sandy Ferguson, and his defeat by Mar
vin Hart, can give Mr. Abrams ajiy oppor
tunity for a challenge. I'm positive the
name of Jack Johnson will not help any
'gate' .in San Francisco.
"O'Brien has no idea of 'retiring. and
in due. time, when I can see Johnson as a
card, regardless of his color. Mr. Abrams
can rest assured that he and his pugilist
will be accommodated."

Negotiations Pending Which May

CHICAGO. Jan. 6. (Special.) That
Philadelphia Jack O'Brien and Tommy
Ryan, will bo the center Of attraction in
the pugilistic world before very long, can
be gathered from the present chances of
the two being matched to participate in a
20-round contest at James Coffroth's club
in California. The Philadelphian, it Is
believed, .would undoubtedly like much
to have Ryan as his first opponent, as
between these two men lies the middle
O'Brien, after his recent victor over
Fitzslmmons expressed his willingness to
take on Ryan as his next adversary.
O'Brien says lie is anxious to have a
clear record of the three championships
that he now can battle for. He holds the
light heavyweight title and there is some
question about whether ho or Marvin
Hart -is heavyweight champion. Besides
endeavoring to be the holder of this title,
O'Brien is eager to add the middleweight
crown to Ills list. The only way he can
procure it is by defeating Tommy Ryan.
When Ryan heard of the Phlladelphlan's
eagerness to get into the ring with him.
he immediately urged bis manager. Jack
Curley, to attend to the affair. Negotia
tions for the match are now pending and
it Is expected that before long it will be

ALL HOPE IN DOUMA
First Russian Congress Sum

COUNTRY SETTLING DOWN
Black Hundreds Call for Massacre

Demands Home Rule.
ST. PETERSBURG, Jan. 7. (Special.)
Tho statement was made last night that
the new imperial Douma will' be sum
moned on March 3, tho annjversary of tha
freeing of the serfs of Russia. On tho
Douma the reactionaries and the -bureaucrats
are now basing all their hopes. If
there is anything that will placate the
people and put an end to the present un
happy revolutionary movement. It will bo
the calling of a national assembly. If a
date -for summoning the Douma has
really been agreed upon and tho an
nouncement of the fact is made. It may
have a good effect In bringing order out
The civil war has como to an end In
most cities, but the peasant uprisings and
the war In tho Baltic provinces are still
causes for a great deal of uneasiness on
tho part of tho government. Tho situa
tion of the railways Is also far from Fat
Isfactory. There Is hardly a district that
is working and several of the roads are
In the hands of the strikers and no travel
Is permitted except under the permission
of strikers committees. Gradually, how
ever, the troops are gaining the upper
hand In nearly all the disturbed districts,
but it will be Impossible to bring about
anything like order within at least two
montVt. Before that time expires thero
may He further disturbances In tho cities,
which will cause the revolutionists In the
provinces to renew the struggle.
Douma May Restore Peace.
The Douma. however, may rolvc tho
problem. If It Is capable of solution. The
representatives of tho people may wrest
enough recognition of their rights to
satisfy the people generally. It Is under
stood as well, that Premier Witte will
resign once the Douma meets and this
will give the Douma an opportunity to put
into operation a new system of govern
ment. Reactionary influence Is shown In the
congress of delegates from the "Black
Hundred" of 15 cities, which has been In
session here. The congress adopted a res
olution calling on tho Czar to restore ab
solutism In its old form and calls on him
to suppress the revolution by massacre
on an appointed day of all the revolu
tionists. Poles, Armenians, Jews and
other elements of disorder. The congress
also has directed a circular to all the
local "Black Hundred" originals, notify
ing them to be ready to inaugurate a
massacre of all sympathizers with the
progressive movement. This circular con
culdcs with the words: "Millions must
die to save Russia, but the death sacri
fice is best for the fatherland."
Th Tjnrernment ha forbidden all meet
ings until the Douma Is summoned. This
may result in trouble, as the right of
holding meetings was guaranteed by the
manifesto of October .. The Prefect of
Police has now seen fit to suspend' opera
tion of that section of the manifesto, and
the people are certain to resent this.
Rebels Will Await Spring.
There is a disposition of many revolu
tionists, however, to postpone any action
against the government until Spring. The
severity of Winter Is one reason for
the plan of being postponed. The agitation
will be kept up, however. If the armed
revolution Is postponed, and the leaders
believe they can gain thousands of sup
porters before Spring.
All Siberia in Revolt.
Advices received last night and early

ties at St. Petersburg. The terrorism to
which the revolutionist? along the Siberi

necessary to declare martial law in that
section. Tho road is In the hands of the

WASHINGTON. Jan. S. (Special.) The

brlnff has spread to this country and offi
cials here are now deeply Interested in
the matter because of the recently devel
oped fact that tho American delegation

It has been believed hero that the vari
ous European governments which aro so
deeply Interested In the conference, not
ably France and Germany; had agreed to
a programme which would be adhered to
rigidly. The possibility of a spilt between
these two governments on some of tho
questions Involved may throw the United
States into a position where its delegates
with their votes will have the power to
settle the issue. In that event. It Is con
sidered, the position of the United States
may become embarrassing.
It Is learned on good authority that the
United States Government will do every
thing in its power to bring about a peace
ful settlement of the Issues which will be
discussed at the conference. From this it
appear? that President Roosevelt has
again determined to use all his power in
keeping the world at peace. The difficul
ties of the situation are great and the
American mission will undoubtedly have
much work to do.
FRESH ALARM. OF COMING WxVR
Britain Wonders "Whether Kaiser Is
Playing for Fight.
LONDON. Jan. 6. (Special.) With the
Morocco conference at Algeclras only ten
days off. there Is a deplorable revival of
alarmist feeling in London. Paris and
Berlin concerning the outlook. The ques
tion asked. In all the capitals is: Will
Germany create an Impasse at Algeclras,
throwing the whole Moroccan dilute
back into the dangerous complications of
the last Spring? Only William I can ans
wer. Apparently a section of German opinion
Is not a little disturbed by the way events
are shaping. There are yellow journals
in Berlin as well as In Paris, and their
unpleasant talk has caused German bnnk
ers to put forth tranquillzing statements
concerning the Emperor's New Year's
speech to his Generals. Tho mere fact
that sensational publications receive such
serious treatment from financiers Indi
cates the present instability of public con
fidence as to a satisfactory outcome of
No one need doubt that the studied re
ticence of the British press concerning
the conference reflects the grave viow
taken in Downing street. Columns of
dispatches from Madrid. Paris and Berlin
are printed to show how this matter is
regarded at those points and by common
consent the press refrains from adding
an ounce to the normal weight of respon
sibility resting upon the government,
which is pledged to support France at
Algeclras and after. Long-headed diplo
mats in London continue to believe that
reasonable considerations of dynasty and
commerce are so patent that the Em
peror will avoid a rupture, provided the
proceedings at Algeclras do not spell
humiliation for Germany.
Europe is coming to the conclusion that
the Emperor is not so much of a diplo
mat as he Is a soldier, and that he has
found it out. The present feeling Is that
his relgo has been a succession of foiled
ambitions and disappointments. His
army is larger by 1.CO9.O0O men than when
he came to the throne, and he has been

is said, maintains that any question, even

by another power, the other two members
of tho triple alliance, Austria and Italy,

Some skin diseases are active in Summer, while others wait until cold
weather to manif cstthemselves. "WinterEczema sleeps in the system through,
the long- hot months, and gives no sign of its presence; but at the coming of
Winter the trouble asserts itself and it becomes one of the most painful and
distressing of all skin diseases. The blood is filled with poisonous acids
which seem to be excited by the cold; and as these are thrown off through,
the pores and glands, the skin cracks and bleeds, the flesh becomes hot and
feverish and the itching intense. The natural oils which keep the skin soft
and pliant are dried up by thfe cold, bleak winds, causing it to become hard
and dry, giving it thatshiny, leathery appearance, characteristic of the disease.
The head, face, hands and feet are the usual points of attack, though other
-parts of the body may be affected. So painful and distressing is the trouble
that the .sufferer constantly "doctors" and treats it trying to get relief.
Soothing washes, medicated ointments and salves are used, but aside from
giving temporary relief they do no good. The cause is poisonous acids in
theblood, and these must be removed before a cure can be effected. The only
cure for Winter Eczema is S. S. S.,
as surely; besides it does not contain any harmful mineral to derange or
damage any part of the system. Book on Skin Diseases and any medical
