BIG BUTTLE IS
Fight Fans Anxious for Jeff
and Johnson to Meet as
Soon as Possible.

James J. Jeffries and Jack Johnson, the
"best of the big men in the. prize-ring
today, have signed up to meet In a con
test for the championship of the world.
The date and place of their meeting has
not been stipulated, as both are anxious
to get a chance at the highest purse
likely to be offered, and each also figures
to clean up a little extra change by
means of a vaudeville engagement. In
stead of satiating the desire of the
world's pugilistic admirers, the two most
talked of fighters of today -are going to
play the game to tneir own advantage.
In a measure they are right,' though
the average fight fan is inclined to
think there is too much stalling in the
dealings between them. However, the
fact that they have signed up and posted
forfeits seems to indicate that the big
fellows will eventually come together,
and this naturally leads to speculation
u to the outcome of their meeting. The
vast majority of the fight fans are in
rllned to favor Jeffries as the winner,
but Johnson is not without his admirers.
In fact, the colored man has a sur
prising number of followers who. while
they would like to see Jeffries win, are
going to back the negro with their coin.
These men figure that Jeff cannot come
hack, and if he makes good on his boast
that he is himself again, there will be a
noticeable percentage of the sporting
public patronizing the coffee and punc
tured dough stands.
Fight Is Sized Vp.
At this time the Eastern sporting
scribes are commenting on the possibili
ties of the match, and some of their
dope on the coming battle is as follows:
Barrett OHara In a New York Utter to

make Impossible demands and And lu their
refusal a pretext for withdrawing from the
match. , -
Nor must Johnson assume an air or arro
gance, exaggerating the popular recog
nition of hi. ability that his recent vic
tories have won him into a public license
to dictate terms to a man who would atlll
hava been champion had he been minded to
retain the kingship of a kingdom of pigmies.
The public demands reasonable concession
of pride by both Jeffries and Johnson, a
quick businesslike coming to terms and
articles fair to all concerned and insuring
a battie in which the better man may win.
Johnson Has Made Good.
Of one item there can be no dispute:
Johnson, the negro who was kicked at and
scorned and who went hungry many a day
and "carried tha banner" many a cold nigh

of his greainosa and Impresario, were aend

public has declared "champion of all cham

hope that perhaps some strong young fellow
will come along and win the title. Heavy

Johnson first saw light three year, later.
March 31. 1&78. Had Jeffrie, continued un
interruptedly in the ring these three years'
difference In age might pot cut much of a
figure, but It mean, a lot under present
circumstances. Jeffries know, the impor

that he can beat the colored man show,
how cheaply : be hold. him. He probably
holds him too cheaply, for Johnson Is un
questionably a great tighter. No one but
a great fishier could have done what John
son did to Ketchel In that twelfth round.
Johnson did to Ketchel what Ketchel did
to O'Brien. Of course Johnson had a great
advantage In .ise and weight over Ketchel
and also caught him on a ruse In that
ti rati round, but that should In no way de
tract from the credit of his victory. Ketchel
was heralded a. the coming champion and
he fought with a fearlessness that caused
Johnson to exercise caution in avoiding the
vicious blow, handed out In every round.
Yet when the big black once cut - loose
Ketchel was beatea into submission by a
few punchea The question now arise.:
What effect will such punches have on Jef

Edward W. Cochrane, sporting editor
Kansas City Journal:
From now until the day of the Jeffries
Johnson battle we will hear all kinds of
opinions regarding the probable! 'result,
but no one can safely predict the result
of this battle. If you place any bets,
don't allow your prejudice against the
black race, if you have any. to get the
better of your judgment- Consider the
ability of Johnson Just as If he were a

of the cleverest fighters in the game to
day arfd can hit when he wants to. He
has been toying with all the heavyweights
in the country and has had a hard time
refraining from extending, himself at
times. The only time that he showed a
spurt of his real ability as a fighter was
when he knocked Ketchel out, and he did
it so quickly and easily that 10.000 people
In the big arena in San Francisco were
astonished at the result of the fight, end
ing as it did when it seemed Johnson
could not put his man, away with a sin
Ape May Count TTeavlIy. "
Of course. Jeffries is a wonderful
figher. He has never been whipped and
is the greatest heavyweight we have had
in many years. But every fighter meets
a better man some day. Johnson has been
Imnrovina- and Is now in a position to
show his real worth." The Jim Jeffries
of six years ago would defeat the Jack
Johnson of today, but can the Jeffries
of today'do it? That is the question to
solve. The man who can solve it can
win a fortune In wagers. The betting
will be more brisk than on any battle 'of
recent years. It is the most important
fight the'rintr has seen since Fitzslmmons

Jeff, to all outward appearances, is In ex
cellent physical condition. He probably weighs
24J pounds, although he gives hi. weight at
or near 22S pounds.
While Jeff has made no definite statement
regarding what he intends doing between the
time he .igoe for a match with Johnson and
the date set for the battle. It is more than
probable he will want to fill another theatrical
engagement. Despite oeweriaper statement, to
the oontrary Jeff will hardly consent to fight
before next Hay.
Such an arrangement would permit him to
devote about 2U week to the stage and still
leave him about ten weeks in which to pre
pare himself for the battle. Jeff is sure to
have hla way when It comes to fixing the
date for the fight, which leads me to sur
mise that-there will be no fight before the
It la not likely that Jnhninn will raise any
objection to whatever date Jeff may eee fit
to name, as It .is understood that he, too,
has a theatrical engagement in view. How
ever, the time is not far distant when the
public will know who's bluffing.
What Other Fans Say.
Other fistic authorities are quoted as
Billy Delaney, the man who discovered and
trained Jeffries, declares he can never get
back to his old form. ' He does not say that
he will not beat Johnson, but he thinks Jeff
is taking a big rli in fighting after a five
year Retirement. In hi. day, Delaney says,
he was the hardest hitter that ever entered
a ring, but he cannot be the same man after
hi. retirement. He questions Jeffries claims
that he ia as good a's he ever was, and asks
'how doe. he know that?"
Mike Murphy, the college coach, admitted
to be the keenest judge of physical condi
tion, think Jeffries Is walking hack to a
certain defeat. nd he does not hesitate to
say so. In speaking of the proposed match.
'Jeffries was the greatest of the hlg men:
he 'was.' hut I hardly think he "le" today.
Age beat Maud S. It beat Arthur Duffy; why.
It will even beat nature Itself, and Jeffries Is
like all the rest; he must wilt under the
Jim Shor'el, manager of the Bedford Ath
letlo Club. Is sure that not only will Jeff
come back, but will bet a roll on the result
of the bout.
Hughey Winters is fond of the Jeffrie end,
and he thinks he Is going to win a mint
when the two big men meet.
Mike Mulligaa thinks Jeffries I. the goods.
"If ever a man was going to get It, and
get it quick, it is Johnson." said he.
Fred Welsh, the English lightweight, and
Battling Nelson are both of the opinion that
when Jack Johnson tights Jeffries he is go
ing to a certain defeat and that the defeat
will be a quick one.
Billy Roche, who referee, most of the big
fights In California, and who ha. refereed sev
eral of Johnson', fight., says he doe. not see
how Jell can come back after such a long
absence. He further states tnal jonnson is
a much better man than he has shown him
self to be.
Charll. White say. it is a toss-up.
Gus Ruhlln ays Jeffrie, has his best wishes,
but he fears Johnson may do the trick.
Tom Sharkey .ays If Jeff I. anywhere near
his old form Johnson should be easy picking
for the boiicrmaker. 1
Others who like Jeff's chances are Young

Multnomah's gym is the scene of much

the members of the boxing: and wrest

The boys who will represent Multnomah
at Seattle have not all been determined,
and tryouta will be held tomorrow and
Tuesday to decide which members of
certain classes will represent the club in
the Northwestern tourney. Gene West,
the 135-pound boxer, is sure to be one or
the members of the team, for ho is the
beet man Multnomah has in that division.
The others will be selected from among
"the many speedy youngsters oeing tu
tored by Professors O Connell and. uaa
ziger. New Talent Being Developed.
Among the boxers who will compete
for Multnomah In the various tourna
ments the coming 'Winter, including the
city championships, which are scheduled,
for November 8 and 9, are a number of
new ones,, and Professor Danziger be
lieves he has one or two champions
among the lads.
G Mitchell, a new man in the 123-pound
division, is making a strong bid to usurp
the places, of Harry Neicken and Olmar
Dranga, but the experience of the others,
especially Dranga, will make hard werk
necessary. Mitchell is a game little
chap and has displayed his anility on a
number of occasions. He is shifty and
seems to have a good left hand, an es
sential requisite for a little gladiator.
W. Boyle is another who is showing
great promise in the loS-'pound class. He
hag the advantage of exceptional height
and reach, and during the class nights
so far has shown wonderful Improvement.
In this division Multnomah has been sel
dom represented, for there have not been
many big men enrolled among the boxers
at the club. .
In Richie Hewitt Professor Danziger
thinks he has the coming amateur cham
pion 105-pounder of the Coast. Hewitt is
an aggressive little chap and has dis
played a talent for Improvement , that is
most Mattering to the instructor. Dan
ziger also has a youngster in the 116
pound class named Ernest Miller, who
looms up better each night. The lad is
willing and has shown such advancement
that Professor Danziger believes he, will
eventually make quite a record for Tiirn
self. ; .'
Smith Might Be Champion-
G. Smith is another 115-pounder, and
as he has worn the club's colors in past
tournaments, he Is well known to the
members. Smith, if he would apply him
self harder to his work, ought to make
a champion in. a short time.
C. C. Ralph, the ambitious youngster
who boxes at 145 pounds, will be one of
the club's mainstays. He has developed
Into a clever boxer In the past year and
many who saw his first appearance here
a few years back have been surprised at
the improvement. R. Butler, who boxes
in the heavyweight division, was formers
ly a member of the club's football team.
He has been away for a couple of years,
but is now located in Portland again and
has taken up boxing as an athletic ex
ercise. He will represent Multnomah, in
the heavyweight division this season.
Professor Danziger work out with the
boys each night and expresses himself as
pleased at the showing made. The, club
has secured a trainer to handle the box
ers and wrestlers and he takes care of
the boys after ach workout.
