THE reign of the black, dynasty In
pugilism has not yet cone crash
ing Into oblivion.
But the negro heavyweight cham
pion' showing yesterday against Frank
Moran convinces fistic students, savants
and specialists alike that the Johnson
of old Is retrograding fast.
Some four years go Johnson stood
at the very crest of pugilism. Moran
would have had but slight chance of
surviving 20 rounds In those days.
Moran has never done anything so won
derful. "Gunboat" Smith gave him a
terrible lacing in SO rounds.
Johnson's failure, therefore to dis
pose of the Pittsburg heavyweight Is
an indication that wine, women and
revelry not only have fattened the
negro like a Christmas shoat, but sim
ultaneously have extracted the sting
from his terrible punch.
Johnson still retains his ring skill
and his uncanny generalship, and that's
likely all that saved him from the white
usurper yesterday.
The victory of the black man. while
a victory in name, raises new hope In
the breasts of Caucasia. Flstlanf. now
ti.rns to "Gunboat" Smith as the savior
o.' the white race.
The Gunner has gone through a
strenuous campaign of elimination, dur
ing which he has beaten Langford, Mo

Johnson in the next real championship
Smith gets his final test July 1
against the sensational Frenchman,
Carpentler, who refereed the Johnson
Moran battle yesterday. If he defeats
the French Idol he will be able to demand-
almost any price for a battle
against the negro before the sanguinary-loving,
frog-eating Frenchmen.
Locally there was very little betting
on the Johnson-Moran bout. Some few
wagers were laid at 3 to 1 on the
"smoke," but even money on Moran to
stick 10 rounds predominated.
FEW sportsmen know It. but John
son and Moran fought once before.
The record books don't show It, but It's
the truth Just the same.
Their previous bout took place In the
Gaiety Theater in Pittsburg about five
years ago, just after the Inky Kink

Moran at that time was studying den
tistry at the University of Pittsburg
and playing football on the side. Also
he was doing a little boxing. So when

Story of Refusal of Al! Challenges by New Champion Related by Brady
One-Quarter Interest in "Way Down East" Sold by Jim for Small 8um.
(Copyright, 1914, by William A. Brady.)
AFTER Corbetf defeat by Fltsslm
mons at Carson h seemed to
lose heart In everything. He pre
pared to go back to San Francisco, de
claring that he would never return to
the East again. Not long after he had
reached th Coast' a mutual friend In
San Francisco wired me of "rompadour
Jim's" resolve, and I promptly wired
back that as soon as I had settled
with Stewart I was going to fan Fran
cisco to bring Corbett East with me.
The receipts of this affair $44.000
were very disappointing, but from other
sources we got about 20.000, which
went to defray expenses. Th pictures
made between $j.i00 and (700.000.
They were exhibited everywhere, the
world over.
Phenomenal prices were paid for stat
rights this was tha first time moving
pictures wer shown In high-class the
aters. They played tne Academy of
Music New York; the Grand Opera
house, Chicago, and the Boston Theater
to enormous receipts. One machine was
sent around the world, operating In
Australia. China. Japan, India, friouth
Africa and Cairo. I believe that these
pictures made more money than any
others up to the present time, and that
It wss they which proved the valu of
moving picture for great event and
for show purposes.
Notwithstanding the fact that we
were to have 60 per cent of the picture
receipts. Mr. Stewart took the films to
New York, formed a corporation with
himself as president and his brother
as treasurer, took the entire manage
ment of the thing out of our hands and
left us helpless thankful for what we
could get, I think each man received
about (80.000.
After the settlement with Stewart. I
Jumped back to Frisco to find Corbett.
He had no more ambition and was re
luctant to go East. I told him that al
ready a very strange thing had devel
oped. It was this: Fltxslmmons, al
though having fought a wonderful
fight, was distinctly unpopular with th
Scheme Is Breached.
I laid before Corbett a little scheme
which I had conceived and workel out
on my way West. We would tak ad
vantage of Fitzslmmons' unpopularity
and by a little engineering and schem
ing persuade the public that "lanky
Bob" had actually been knocked out In
the sixth round at Carson City and that
Corbett had been robbed of the match.
The scheme was Immediately to start
East, oppose the new champion at every
point, play against him. give him a
dose of his own medicine, nag and bait
him In the way fa used to nas and bait
Corbett. turn the tables on him, mas
him the pursued Instead of the pur
suer as he used to be put Corbett In
the position of the men clamoring for
Justice and Fttxslmmons In th hsteful
position of th man denying Justice,
and all this time w were frequently
to keep demanding another flsht and
to prove, or try to prove, to the publlo
that Fltxslmmons wss afraid to meat
Corbett again.
Following out this project, w played
against Fltxaltnmons In Kenvar end
again In Kansss City. Kemember. FH
slmmon had had a play written for
himself In which he was trying to set.
We had so brought the capricious pub
llo around to our way of thinking so
that th Cornlariman played to ;n'r
benches, while Corbett packed the the
aters. In creating this sentiment I had lot
upon one Idea: to use the mowing pic
tures. These were to be shown In Nw
York at the Academy of Mualc. The
people at that time knew llltie sbnut
this new form of entertslnmenl. The
mechanical method of producing It had
not been exploited In the funday sup
plements as yet. And this n whet

tures for my purpose. Th peopl did
not know that on could run th pic
