East Las Vegas, N. July 3 With
the decreasing possibility or probability
f a crowd sufficient to meet Jack John
con's purse demands and to cover .the
expenses, of promotion, things are look-
In dubious today tor Thursdays ngiu.
Train after train has come In -without
expected crowds and the hopes of Jack
Curley have- fallen accordingly. That
there -will not be enough In the house
to meet -reneral expenses, aside from 4
the pursav guaranteed Johnson, seems
a foregone conclusion and because of
thWs; meeting, will be held late this,
afternoon between Johnson and Curley
to talk over the situation. ' 1
and Is not Inclined to force harsh terms,
but tf there Is not enough money as
sure4 Curley wfirtre put to his utmost
to make terms satisfactory to consum
mate, the fight
; - " Less Than $30,000 In.
This morning there was less than
$SO,000-4n the treasurer's hands and as
the promotion cost is almost that much,
and as Las Vegas merchants failed to
"coma through" with their promise to
buy tickets they agreed to before the
match was signed up, it looks very much
like- someone getting stung
At 3 p. m'yesterday tho entire mat
ter was. thresbed over. Jack Curley
last night was decidely worried over
the failure of the expected special
trains to- arrive. Unless they arrive
today or Thursday morning it will mean
the loss of thousands of dollars to him.
The arrivals yesterday were decidedly,
lean. Hundreds stopped off trains go
ing from east to west, dui tuny a per
cent reboarded thrxars after partaking
of their meals.
Johnson, Flynn and Curley were
scheduled to hold a joint conference
with Referee Smith last night at Cur
ley's headquarters. Flynn was on time,'
but after waiting 35 minutes for John
son, left in anger, venting his wrath
upon Manager Flanagan.
"Tell your man," he said, "that 'I was
here on time and that I will meet him
hers tomorrow night, if he isn't afraid
to show tip.
The Puebian showed surprising ginger
as' nTgniTtihi very little anxiety and
"You know what I said a couple of
days ago," he said. "I am ready, and
If Johnson beats me it will be when 1
am coming in. I'll never stop until
one of us falls. This feeling about my
being : whipped before I get into thd
ring Is something I cannot understand.
I don't own any private graveyard, so
far as I have heard, and as for his de
feat of Jeffries, why, if I couldn't
have beaten' Jeffries two years ago I'd
never draw on a glove again."
The moving picture men were on the
Job. yesterday. They first visited Flynn's
camp at Montezuma Springs, taking the
challenger In action. Later in tha ev
ening Johnson's camp was taken In,
but a heavy wind and rainstorm spoiled
the effect for the film people. When
the downpour became , too heavy the
crowd mads a rush for the porch of
Johnson's, cottage, but the rickety sup-
it collapsed with a crash. Nobody was
Injured. -
Tlyna Gets Letters.
-Jirn-Flynn is in receipt of many en
couraging telegrams and letters. One
of : them, most highly prized. Is that
from Billy Shannon and his wife, of
San Rafael, Cal.. where Flynn trained
for a number of fights.
Johnson's camp was in high feather
today, almost without exception the
champion's handlers picking the black
to win Inside of 11 rounds. Thus far,
the Johnson" backers have been unable
i to place their money at odds they think
right. They want the Flynn people
: to offer 2 to 1 that Johnson W9n't beat
Flynn in 10 rounds, even money that
. wnvt' Ka- him U 1 .'. 1 n
that the black will not win in 20 rounds,
-. The latter price, for some unexplained i
reason, also holds for the general re- '
Suit of the battle -
The Flynn fol.ewers. however, want j
I to 8 on the general result and in the :
face of the 20 round money offered hy I
the Johnson folks, they seem to have !
the better of the areumont.
Tuesday s only diversion was a.tle
cutting party organized by Johnson and
Tom Flanagan, who, peeved because
Johnson was not nominated for judge
of the "old town kangaroo court," de
cided to snip the tie of all of those
opposed to Jack. The first victims
, sought by the black and his manager
Were a patr of welterweight corres
pondents, who led the fight against
Johnson's nomination In thu kangaroo
i eoufr convention. ,
Ruthlessly In the presence of crowds
. at the depot, Flanagan and hl3 protece
clipped their ties and stuck them In
their buttonholes as souvenirs. When
the moving picture men arrived John
son was full of the tie-clipping fever
and before the "movies" could get busy
he and Flanagan had clipped 60 ties.

Los Angeles, Cal.. July 3. Gloves and
training paraphernalia were packed
away and the reserve liniment supply
and bandage remnants fed to Jack
Doyle's goat at the Vernon camp today
when Ad Wolgast bade farewell to the
training routine for his 20 round battle
with Joe Rivers tomorrow in defense of
his title.
At Venice late today Rivers will work
before tho moving picture makers, after
which he will give a final smlla to the

Rivers will, come from Venice this
evening and spend the night at the
home of his manager, Joe Levy. ' The
boys will report at the arena at 2
o'clock tomorrow afternoon.
Friends of the champion were over
joyed last evening, and after Ad worI:d
for tho moving picture men, stepped on
the scales and raised the beam at 130 Vi.
This was a clear gain of two pounds in
24 hours, and the German smiled de
lightedly as he predicted that he would
be within a pound of the lightweight
limit at the bell.
In spite of his rather drawn appear
ance, Wolgast seems to be In real condi
tion for a hard battle. His skin Is as
brown as an Indian, and as tough as
sole leather. To prove this point for a
curious crowd, Tom Jones took a roll
and twisted it until the flesh for two
inches around showed white. Tn spite
of the gouging not a crease showed
when the red faced manager turned
loose his" grip.
Wolgast declares that the . appendi

"It took me years to get to the title,
which is still worth 1100,000.

Cleveland Alliance Holds Up
Cash Offer fop Fast Colt
" Outfielder.
Developments are . being awaited in
tbs Pittsburg bid ot $300 casH for
Eddla Mensor, star outfielder of the
Northwestern league. Walter .McCredle,
presumably, ' . Is holding ' up the deal
until he can hear from Cleveland as
to th disposition of Mensor. ; If Cleve
land wants the young peed marvel it
is likely that ha will go there through
the Nap-Beaver alliance next year, but
It Is understood that the Pirates are
asking for immediate delivery. Pitts
burg is badly in need of an outfielder,
and that accounts for the big price
offered for Mensor,
- Should the Northwestern league club
accept Pittsburg's cash offer It would go
a Ion gway toward making the Colt club
break even on the season, and the way
the crowds are now turning out. would
doubtless show a bid profit On the
other hand, if Cleveland takes Mensor,
Portland will probably be rewarded
with a couple of Stones; and tho Colt
Club regarded as a losing proposition
financially. It is a, well known fact
that a number of the NoTthwestern
league magnates rely Upon the sale of
players to put them on the right side of
the lodger at the end of the year.
Manager Nick Williams, "when seen
yesterday, was reticent about discuss
ing Pittsburg's offer, but admitted that
he would not stant in the way of
Mensor's advancement to major league
baseball, if he was to be assured of a
good outfielder from the Portland
Coast league club. He stated that If
he could get Doane be would be ready
to turn over Mensor to either Pittsburg
or Cleveland immediately.
Scout Van Haltren stated yesterday
that he had received no further news
than that President Dreyfuss had taken
the matter up with Manager Clarke,
who seemed f avbrable to the purchase.
Harry Sutor, the new Beaver left
