which lie had dinner and went early
to bed. The promoters were at the
racetrack until long after midnight
conning tho gate receipts. The of
fieial totnl is not yet known. The sil
ver coins of nil denominations taken
in at tho racetrack are piled tip in
barrels and alongside of them arc
stacks of bills, many of them old and
ditty and almost falling nimrt.
Mystery of IllvnpiHNmuico
Tho myMory of Johnson's disap
pearance is now explained. He went
to the racetrack to sec the gate money
counted, although he bad no financial
interest in the receipts, and nt the
name time to keep awav from visitors.
There is reason to believe the gate
receipts exceeded $120,000. The ab
sence of the negro from his house led
to wild rumors last niuht that he was
in a hospital, serioifly injured.
Willard and his promoters and sup
porters will leave Wednesdnv for
Key Vvst. Johnson, accompanied by
bis wife and some friends, expects to
leave Havana the latter part of the
week for the French island of Martin
irine, in the West Indies.

Johnson came downtown at noon.
He was dressed with bis eus'oninry
brilliancy. A big crowd followed him
about, condoling with him and prais

quently lapsed into moody spells.

Johnson had several conferences
today with promoters who wanted to
buy his fiO per cent intcrcxt in the
moving pictures of the contest. The
negro said he has been offeicd .filll),

Johnson talks of taking a long sea
voyage, possibly to China. Ho says
he wants to get away from crowds
and forget the result of the fight. He
offers no excuses for his defeat.
Willard is loo big, Johnson declar
ed, for the average sized heavyweight
ever to defeat.
Willard was also downtown today,
but thu two fighters did not see each
Great crowds followed the new
champion wherever ho went. Willard
begins packing this afternoon and is
planning to leave Havana tomorrow.
