:Eddt Graney, -who refereed th Cor-bett-Britt
contest, in v:ew of the criti
cisms1 ;that have been heaped upon him
for the decision he rendered In favor of
Brltt, has given out the following state
ment in explanation of his action: ;
"I realize that It is bad form from a
sportsman's standpoint, or, a .referee to
dlucuBS his decision, but there has been
o much talk by the people against
whom I decided in the recent fight be-
. iween jsruv nnu xvuug wuiubh .,... u
feel it incumbent upon me to explain my
position. If I live for 10 years, or for
100 years, nothing will be able to con
vince me that I did not render a Just
decision when I gave the fight to Brltt.
"I think that it is generally recognized
that I have some ability as a boxer. I
don't think the people can conscien
tiously say that I am not thoroughly
familiar with the practical side of the
"Now, so far as my honesty Is con
cerned, X don't think it is necessary for
me to. speak upon that point The peo
ple who know me and lme me will say
X am honest, and tnose who do not like
me are liable to say that J am dishonest.
That Is one of the results of. occupying
that most ungrateful of all position in
tha innrllnn TOnrlrl a. referee. NOW a
to Diinchlnir In the clinches. That is the
only argument that I have with 'Young
Corbett,' whom I consider a good fel
low and a thorough sportsman.
"During 'Corbett'a' first contest with
ITanlon he never struck , a blow in a
clinch during the 50 rounds they fought.
In his second fight with Hanlon he had
a man against him who was not aggres
sive, who used what is known as the
'crouch.' and who let "Corbett do prac
tically all of the leading. While he held
. At ii i v.n.V.n..'.' hand!
were free and he need them. to the best
of his ability. By so doing he lived up
to the Queensbury rules, which stipulate
that a man with two hands free may
punch in the clinches.
"During Friday nighfs fight Britt did
all the forcing. At times he compelled
Corbett' to clinch. I did not compel
them to break for the first 14 or 15
rounds. After that it became practi
cally a wrestling match' in sports.
Neither of them had both hands free.
.Therefore, according to the rules under
which they fought, they could not punch
in the clinches, and when I told them
to break they would not break, and the
only times I forced them to break were
when they were wrestling or holding.
' Cyrbett,' while unjustly criticising

which is his best hand.
" Corbett' said that I never separated
hlm;'during the, clinches; In any of his
other contests. That is not true. , In so
stating the little chap-Is very much
mistaken: Any one with m memory who
saw him light Terry McGovern knows
perfectly well that I had to partially
disrobe in the ring in order to fore the
fighters to break from the second to the
fourteenth round.' '
In the fight with McGovern "Corbetf
was forced to clinch Jut as he was with
iSrill. UU1 Ull.l wiu .uvuw..." -
out the pace for 'Corbett,' so that if I
didn't break the men in both fights, the
battles would have degenerated, into
mere wrestling matches.
' "I sincerely hope that Brltt will give
Corbett' a return match in the near fu
ture. He ought to give -corbett' first
chance. I hope they will select some
good California referee. There are qulto
a few here, but if they are afraid of the
Native Son,' I think it would be a good
idea to! import an outside referee."

Now York, March 26. They got off at
Bennlngs last Wednesday and the east
ern racing season for 1904 is fairly open,
' The Bennlngs opening was auspicious,
as becomes what experts unite in saying
will be the greatest; season racing has
ever seen.in the United States. ' v
Of course, the- racing ;sp far at Ben
nlngs has given little line on the horses,
and it is doubtful if anything better
for the students of dope can be expected
of the racing at Washington. The
horses, which have wintered about New
York, have been handicapped by the hard
winter, and none of them are in condi
tion to race, at present Hence, so far
as the dope is concerned, the Bennlngs
meeting will be little more than a con
tinuation of the New. Orleans meet The
winter track horses may be expected to
take a majority of the races,
The following Is a complete list of
eastern racing dates allotted . by. the
Jockey Club for the season .of 1904i
Bennlngs, .March' 24 to: .April 14;
Aqueduct, April 15-23; Jamaica, April
25 to May 4; Morris Park, May 6-25;
Gravesend, May 26 to June 15; Buffalo,
June 6-26; Sheepshead Bay, June 16 to
July 6; Brighton Beach, July 6-30; Sara
toga, r August 1-26; Sheepshead Bay,
August 27 to September 10; Buffalo, Sep
tember' 8-17; Brighton Beach, September
12-17; Gravesend, September 19 to Oc
tober 1; Morris Park, October 8-1S; Ja
maica, October 17 to November 2; Aqueduct,-
November 3-15;. Benmngs, Novem
ber 17:;o December 3.
The allotment of dates differs consid
erably from that of last year, the prin
cipal changes being that Jamaica has
two long meetings lnbtead of three short
ones, and the Jockey Club wisely con
cluded not to run the risk of giving
Brighton Beach a meeting following the
fall meeting at Morris Park, as was done
Season Offers Promise. '
It can truthfully ho said that there
never has been a aer if such promise.
Two things are r. lry for a suc
cessful racing' meet; nigh-class horses
and big purses. These two In combina
tion are bound to attract big crowds. '
Of the first it can be said the. mater
rial entered in all the big handicaps and
stakes has never been better -than this
season's prospects would indicate. More
good 2,. 3, 4, 5 and 6-year-old horses
went Into retirement last fall than for
many years past, and despite the fact
that the winter has been an unusually
severe one, hardly a case of sickness has
been reported from any part of the
country.: Only two really high-class per
formers have died during the winter.
Louis V.;. Bell's Col. Bill, that died of
spinal .meningitis following an accident
and John E. Madden s Aristocracy, win
per, of last year's Saratoga Special, that
died as the result of a five-mile run
away on bis .farm in Kentucky,. - Aside
from these two. all the horses that were
retired last fall will, according to pres
ent Indications, be ready to back up the
contentions of their owners during the
v Biff Stakes Offered.
Of the second factor the situation can
be summed UD tn' the statement that
from the opening at, Bennlngs, Thurs
day, until the close at the same track
December 3, not less than 3760,000 in
stakes and purses will be hung up for
winning -owners. ; '
- At the close of last season announce
ments followed each other rapidly from
the Coney Island Jockey club, the Brook
lyn jockey club, the Brighton Beach
Racing association and ' the Saratoga
association that their big events would
be made guaranteed affairs exceeding in
value any amount they had ever paid
before. The Brighton handicap was
changed from an added money event to
a guaranteed value of 325.000; the
Suburban' handicap ' to a guaranteed
value of $20, 000,. and the Brooklyn handi
cap to a guaranteed value of $20,000.
Following these announcements came
others of a like import from the smaller
associations which will bring the total
up to the princely aggregate of three
quarters of a million. What better can
be asked T
Question of Xorsea.
Last season closed with the question
of the best horses In the various classes
Unsettled. Waterboy and McChesney,
between whom lay the premier honors of
the season, will meet if neither goes
wrong In the Suburban on June 16, and
the long-argued question of - supremacy
ipay then be settled. The rivalry for
4-year-old ' supremacy promises to be
taken up by the Hampton Stable's
Africander and the Wcstbury Stable's
Irish Lad. the same two colts that con
tended for the highest 8-year-old honors
last year, and the same -Interesting situ
ation apparently will exist in 8-year-old
ranks, where Highball, Hamburg Belle,
Leonldas and a host of other good
youngsters of last year will compete for
this year's rich prises. A
OREGON AGRiCS ARE
SEEKING A COACH
(Journal 8pecUl Service.)
Corvallls, March 31. There is much
speculation and discussion on among
members of the O, A. C. athletic asso
ciation, concerning a coach for the O.
A. C. football , team for next season
Three men are mentioned for the place;
the full-back on the All-American team,
the half-back on the Michigan team, and
Seagles of Reno, Nevada, who ooached
the Nevada men last season. The latter
seems to be the man in favor, but what
the outcome will be Is only conjecture.
A meeting held at the college last night
by the athletic association had for its
purpoee the selection of a coach but
after much discussion the ' meeting ad
journed without settling oh the man.

UNDER NEW SYSTEM
. (Journal Special Service.)
Atlanta, Ga., March 81. The new state
law which becomes operative tomorrow
will mark the beginning of the end of
Georgia's convlctlease system, the per
nicious - effects of which are generally
recognised. Under the new law one-
third of the felony convicts of the state
will be ; taken from the employment of
private persona and placed upon the
public roads In the counties which have
made application for convict labor for
this purpose. ,
Under the new law the state is to re
tain supervision over the prisoners, in
cluding those hired by private parties.
Though the number to be hired by prl
vate parties is reduced one-third by the
new law the revenues of the state from
this source will be considerably in
creased owing to the raise in the price
of the convict labor following the de
crease In the supply.
Under the new contracts the state will
receive a total of $388,119 for the labor
of 1,600 convicts, as against 1202,000
per annum for mora than 2,100. The
expense of the system will be greatly
reduced also, because of the smaller
number 6t camps, and it is estimated
that the net result to the state will be
$260,000 for the school fund.
JTOABT OT PASSOVEB SHOUTS.
(Journal Special Serrlce.)
New Tork, March 31, Sundown this
evening marks the beginning of the Feast
of the Passover. It Is the Jewish
Easter, according to the Hebrew
Chronology, and is observed by all
branches of the faith, the reformed sec
tion abbreviating the season of un
leavened bread to seven days and being
less strict as to the fulfillment of the
ancient traditions. The Initial services
of the feast are In . the homes of the
worshipers, after a season in the syna
gogue. Services are held in the syna
gogues the first two and the last two
days of the feast The method varies
according to the beliefs of each congre
gation. The unleavened bread is made
of flour and water and usually in the
form of thin wafers. It was the old
custom in Jerusalem to bake the matsoth
in the sun. There Is no rule as to meats
or vegetables, but nothing of liquors,
save wine, is permitted.
