weight pugilist of the world, and Robert
Fttutimmons, -who has hopes of regaining

JEFF THE FAVORITE?. K
From the hour the' match wA. made
Jeffries has been n decided favorite over
Fltzslmmons in the betting. Those who
have staked their money on the champion
have in mind the fact that he did the
trick once and can do It again.' Besides,
the champion has a most decided advan
tage in regard to age and lit addition he
Is teller, heavier and has slightly longer
reach than the Cornishman. is con
ceded by all followers of the game that
Jeffries has improved in science since
he won the championship. Hit best hold
is a left rip, such as Dixon used with
i great execution in his palmy days. He
is also handy with the right at the ribs.
He Is quick- on his feet, gritty -and ag
gressive and with his many' natural ad
vantages it Is difficult 4o figure out how
the Cornishman can withstand his Sledge
hammer blows. In the old days
JEFFRIES SLASHED OUT
in a wholesale way. paying little regard
to pugilistic economies. He had a habit
of striking With the big Jolnte of his
thumbs. As a consequence .he. frequently
crippled his hands early In the-contest,
end for the balance of th time, he was
as helpless as a dismasted vessel wal
lowing In the trough of a heavy sen. Dur
ing the past three years, however, he has
met and t defeated a number of good
men and In addition has sparred a lot
with such past masters of the craft as
Tommy Ryan, and it is but natural that
he should derive benefit from ' keeping
such good company.' It may be safely
assumed therefore that Fltsslmmons .will
tonight face a far more sclehtlfio lighter
than the pugilist at whose hands he met
defeat at Coney Island. V - - .
FITZ CHANCE ' SMALL.; "
With these facts borne to mind it Is
difficult to figure out how. .the Cornish
man has any. show to lower Jeffries' col
ors. - Sat those best acquainted with ring
matters know that ritasloimons is no
ordinary mortal. He has outlived. In an
athletic sense, Ij the- middle and havy-:
Weights of hie gheaUon. He has re-versjA-lhe
rule by building up In muscle
and substance when symptoms of physi
cal shrinkage' might :.b looked "tar: He
Is to-eu Intenu Ad -pureoseg
flowerta : plant, .n4 it 1 Just possibli
that ths results of tM years since he
did any ttgUting has bAisnted rather than
Injured him.-While shrewd bettors natur
ally favor th. champion there are away
who would hot 1 surprised if victory
'perched on the banners Of ths lanky Bob.
For Fitasiannons is '. -t
! r;: A' MAN OF SURPRISES.
m On more than-one'. occasion he has turned
apparent defeat into victory. By his
tactics he has kept opponents away from
him when they might have finished him.
Others he has led on only to put them
h,ors de combat when they least espected
it; He still retains, that famous knock
Out blow. Unless he hu3 retrograded
npore than crities suppose he Is stfll one
of the most dangerous mm In the world
at close quarters.
While apparently awkward and shamb
ling In the rinp. In reality he is all eyes
and fists, and, possessing force, no one
knows better how t apply it.
As regards condition, both men appear
IN EXCELLENT FETTLE.
W4ile their modes of jtralnlnz differ nei
ther fighter hes left a stone unturned
to harden himself for the contest. A
long fight is not expected. Each man Is
a willing performer and the resulf should
be arrived at before half a dozen rounds
have ber fought. Fltzslmmons realizes
that his only chance rests In keeping
away from the big champion long enough
to get In that one knock-out blow of hK
And it will have to be a hard blow at
that, for Jeffries, with his massive jaw
and thick ribs, is built for heavy weather
and above all he possesses recuperative
powers which Fitxsimmons naturally
lacks because of his, advanced years.
VIEWS OF LOCAL MEN
What Portland Citizens Think of
There Is widespread interest among the
residents of Portland aa to how the en
gagement tonight between Jeffries and
Fltzslmmons will come dut. To judge by
the expressions of opinion, one can hear
at every hand, nearly everybody will be
at the ringside In spirit. As is to be ex
pected, opinions vary as to ths merits
of the two men. ,.'- " ' 1,
Those who know Fltzslmmons and have
seen his work In the ring are enthusias
tic over the prowess of the mighty right
of the Australian and are Inclined to the
belief that should he land oa big Jim Jef
fries "Just right" that hM star would tm
tsedlaUely be In the ttfesoendant rather
than the ascendant tta such) case Jeffries
no doubt would "seeestara" to some ex-,
tent himself. . ' ': .;Wt.
The friends of Jeftrtos: are certain that
he will win out, and look ipon him as one
particular leader of the prise ring. ,

Imposter Said He Was Sorry That ffis'-.Un-;
fortunate Exposure Had Prevented ffim ;
From Going Into Business , ::!
The career of J. Coleman Drayton, the
Impostor who arrived In this city on the
Uth of the month, took a sudden, al
though, perhaps, not unexpected turn late
yesterday afternoon, and an. evident
yearning to leave Portland seised the
young man, and he will not be seen here
again. With him went his woman com
panion. - -:
Drayton, upon his arrival in the city,
registered at the Portland, where his
manner and appearance attracted much
attention for seevral days.
Since Drayton's . arrival here he has
masqueraded as the genuine Colemau
Drayton, the New York millionaire bank
er, and with this unrefuted reputation he
became' the cetnral figure in many pros
pective deals, involving the expenditure
of a great deal of money. . ,
To this high-band manipulation of af
fairs there came the climax, when, yes
terday afternoon Detective Day requested
him to accompany him to the office of
the- Chief of Polioe. that there might be
some light thrown upon his doings here.
There was an uncertainty In police circles
as to whether or not Drayton would con
tinue to act In a legitimate way with
his new admirers in business and social
circles: It semed o be generally feared
that Drayton might leave town without
being ordered, to do so, and the police
wanted to have the distinction of giving
him a hint that his Dresence was not
altogether desirable here. ..
WOMAN IN THE CASE.
Drayton has not been back long from
an extended tour In the Orient, where he
accumulated, many valuable relics' and
keepsakes. ,.II is accompanied on his
western tour by a lady who registered at
the hotel as "Mrs. Tuck," who Is said to
be the former wife of a; very wealthy
New Yorker. The, woman Is an actress,
from all appearances. . -
She .has some .very valuable articles of
silverware,- which' are carefully packed,
away in two trunks -t one of the city
pawnbrokers establishments. . ,
FIGURED IN SOCIETY. -Not
only did Drayton pose as a business
man of rare wealth, he became one of
the central society figures in the eyes of
his admirers. To some degree, Drayton
earned this distinction by reason of a
bannquet he gave to prominent citizens
at the Hotel Portland, and on several oc.
caslons champagne suppers, launch par
ties and horseback rides were used "as
means to entertain his new companions.
and demonstrate his ability as the "real
thing." He has an aristocratic, smooth
appaerance, and gives every evidence of
man of education and refinement.
PRrJn. Jtfels t,me nothing had been said
by the young man In reference to his bill
at thsr hotel, and the manager became
ajixious. Detective Day was in the hotel
and when upon seeing the wealthy young
man, was siexed with a sudden assurance
tliat (he face was familiar, and a keen
Interested was manifested thereafter until
the detective became satisfied as to ths
real character of the man.
Drayton Is about 31 years old, S feet 11

The Chief of Police Informed Drayton'
that he was not under arrest. - ' '
The Chief's statements were not of anV
offensive or harsh, but of a truly courteV"

was a stranger In the city and the police
wanted to know what he was) doing here, '

"I have not committed any, crime tn(

had been in difficulties In San Francisco)
several .years ago, but that matter. hed
been "squared," and so far as his' con!

that he fears.- , '

which he adopted over U year ago.
