FRANCISCO, July SS.t-Jtims .J. Jeffries of , California, champion hoavy- ROBERT FiTtSIMMONS Who Would Like to Again Win ihe Title He Lost to Jeffries. weight pugilist of the world, and Robert Fttutimmons, -who has hopes of regaining the championship "honors -he lost vto Jef fries, at Coney Island three years ago, meet In the arena of the National Athlet ic Club tonight tq contest again, for , the supremacy. The men are matched jto box 20 rounds. It present ,arrange?nenti ara carried out, the boxers will- ace one another shortly . after 9 o'clock , Accord ing to reports from their respective train ing quarters. Jeffries and ..Pltsslmmons are both In first-class, physical, condition. 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 lilT 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 to be 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 the Pugilists. 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. .

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.
