' San Francisco," June 18. "We shall wnit until tomofrqwafternoon
before definitely announcing our plans. There still remains a chance
trpull off the biglight in San Francisco, and to that chance we are,
clinging. I have had a long consultation with my" attorneys, and' they
have told me to divulge nothing tonight;. It might, perhaps, be Mon
day before we reach our last and final conclusion, but we hope to be
able to make tfie statement tomorrow."
. ' . This was the announcement made by Tex Rickard at 10:30 o'clock
tonight at the St. Francis hotel.' Rickard, in company with District
Attorney Fickert,' had just had a two hours' conference with Mayor l
P. H. McCarthy at the latter's home. .William II. Metson, attorney
fop. th,e -fight promoters, also was present. What transpired .at the
conference none of those who attended it will say, but Rickard,. in
making his announcement, talked as if he had a card up his sleeve. . -
The sporting public of the United States, therefore, must wait an- .
other day before knowing whether the cry is to be "Up stakes for
Reno," or whether, despite governor and, militia, the Jeffries-Johnson
fight still is to be scheduled for San Francisco. . . - ,
Governor Glllett,'' whek informed at
Sacramento ' of Rlckard's statment, gave
a grim laugh. '. .
"'They might as well ; make up their
minds once and for all to quit," he said'
"That fight Will not take place In Cal
ifornia." Incidentally Glllett, having
been Informed of Louis Blot's Intention
to pill! of f test bouts on Monday, de
clared he would jot Interfere. He said
that these bouts would be merely fakes,
staged for- the purpose of being ratded
by the militia, and that he would not
give Blot the satisfaction of playing
his hand for him. "But let them at
tempt to real prize fight," said the gov
ernor grimly, "and there will be trou
ble in a minute." . - ' "
No one in this . city, save perhaps the
promoters' themselves, believes for a
moment that ; there la ' any possibility
of the fight taking place In California.
Glllett has killed the game forever and
a day, and 1 Its deathknell la. ringing
