SUCCESSFULLY DEFENDS TITLE
VKTHY IN THETEMTn mm
'Spent Thrown Up to Saw Cerhett
From Needless Punishment Evi
dence that Jeffri Stand Alan in
MECHANICS PAVILION", 8AN
FRANCISCO. James J. Jeffries,
heavyweight champion of the world,
played with Corbett for nine rounds
and a half Friday night and then Cor
bett's seconds stopped the fight to
save their man from needless punish
ment. The end came shortly after the be
ginning of the tenth round, when
Jeffries planted one of his terrific left
swings on Corbett's stomach. The
man who conquered John L. Sullivan
dropped to the floor in agony and the
memorable scene at Carson City, when
Bob Fitzaimmons landed his solar
plexus blow, was almost duplicated.
This time, however, Corbett struggled
to his feet and acain faced his gi
gantic adversary With hardly a
moment's hesitation Jeffries swung
his right and again landed on Cor
bett's stomach. Jim dropped to the
floor and then it was that Tommy
Ryan, seeing it was all over, motioned
to Referee Graney to stop it.
The fight demonstrated beyond all
doubt that Jeffries stands alone in his
class. He showed remarkable im
provement on both speed and skill.
Corbett during the first par: of the
fight was almost outpointed and the
few blows he landed on Jeffries were
apparently without sung. Jeffries was
never in better condition. He looked
lighter than usual and the way he
moved about on his feet and the fre
quency with which he countered Cor
bett's leads cstonished everybody.
Corbett, in comparison with the big
man opposed to him, looked light, but
was really heavier than ever before.
He appeared to have lost some of 'his
old time speed and skill during the
early part of the fight, but this may
have been due to Jeffries' marvelous
Corbett's physical condition appear
ed to be all that he had claimed. He
stood many of Jeffries terrific blows
without wincing and came back swing
ing left and right and landed frequent
ly, but his blows hardly stunned
Jeffries. Jeffries was not only strong
er and cleverer than ever, but he used
his head to better purpose and al
though Corbett would hit him hard
enough to hurt an ordinary man
Jeffries bore right in without notic
ing the blows and delivered telling
hits that materially aided in deciding
At first Corbett was cautious and
apparently was outpointed by Jeffries,
but later he warmed up and showed
some of his old time cleverness. From
the first, however, it was generally
regarded as a hopeless case for Cor
bett. He made a gallant fight, but
he never stood a show to win.
After the fight was over Corbett
quickly recovered, walked over to
Jeffries and shook him warmly by the
hand. He said: "Jim. you beat me
fairly. You stand alone. No one
caa touch you.'
MILES IS NOT A CANDIDATE.
Does Not Want to Head the Grand
Army of the Republic
OMAHA. The second section of
the Chicago & Northwestern train, to
which was attached the soeecial car
No. 403. conveying General Nelson A.
Mies and party, arrived in Omaha
about 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. A
great throng we'romed him at the de
pot here I am not a candidate for
the office of commandsr-in-chief of the
Grand Army of the Republic," said
General Miles. "On the contrary.
shall second the nomination of Gen
eral John C. BlacK. General Black Is
a fine represcntative of the old sol
diers and is entitled to the honor. The
Grand Army was created for the com

enough in th? -military line aad have
so ambition farther in that direction.

Veterans Endorse Miles.
ROCHESTER. N. Y At the session
af th1 Union Veteran Union national
encampment a resolution was passed
commending the administrative acts
of Lieutenant General Miles.
It has been decided to take no for

OYSTER BAY, N. Y. President
velt baa as his gnats at Saga
more Hill the members of the sub
committee of the senate committee
on finance, which is engaged in draft
ing a currency measure to be sub
mitted to congress next fall. The sub
committee consists of Senators Aid
rich. Rhode Island, chairman: Piatt.
Connecticut; Allison, Iowa, and Spoon
Prior to the adjournment of con
gress last spring this subcommittee
was appointed and authorized to sit
during the recess of congress to
study the financial situation and pre
pare a measure to meet the require
ments of the situation as the com
mittee viewed it. On this work the
committee, sometimes as individuals,
part of the time as a body, has been
engaged during the latter part of the
summer. For a day or two the mem
bers have been the guests of Sena
ator Aldrich at his summer resi
dence. They are preparing aw to
put into concrete form the results of
their investigation and labor. Desir
ing to consult with President Roose
velt regarding the work, the sub-committee
came to Oyster Bay. It could
not be ascertained definitely whether
a draft of a currency measure had
been made and was to be discussed
or not; but as the senators have
been engaged for two days at War
wick with their clerks and stenog
raphers, it is reasonably certain that
some progress has been made toward
the preparation of a currency bill.
The object of the committee is to
ascertain the views of President
Roosevelt with deflniteness in order,
if possible, to meet them in the fram
ing of the measure. It is understood
to be the desire of all. including the
president, that the bill should be
ready for Introduction at the extra
session, which the president has an
nounced that he will call for Novem
ber 9. Prior to that time the sub
committee will submit its draft of the
proposed measure to the full republi
can membership of the senate com
mittee on finance, and probably to
such other republican members as
may be accesible.
The president is not wedded to any
particular plan of currency reform, so
called, but desires that a practicable
scheme be evolved and put into the
form of legislation at an early date,
that will render the curency system
of the country more elastic and less
likely to be affected by the fluctua
tions of values or the demand for
money at crop movement seasons.
In a general way his ideas have
been presented in some of his
speeches during recent months. It is
said to be unlikely that any definite
information concerning the work of
the sub-committee already accom
plished will be given to the public
at this time.
DECLARES HIMSELF BEST MAN.
What Jeffries Said After the Fight
SAN FRANCISCO Jeffries said af
ter the fight here Friday night: "My
fight will demonstrate to the public
that I am a better man than I ever
was and gives the lie to the reports
which has been circulated in some
quarters that I am a physical wreck,
through drink and other dissipation.
I trained faithfully for this 2ght and
the result shows that I am the nat
ural champion. I outboxed Corbett in
every round and carried the fight to
him at every stage of the game. I
must say. however, that Corbett put
up a better ficht than I thought he
would. His punches had no steam.
and when they did land, which was
not often, they did not pherze me.
At no time was I distressed and I
felt confident of winning from the
first. I would have put him out ;n
the fourth if my glove had not burst.
The half minute's delay to replace
the glove did Corbett a world of good
and he was able to continue the con
test. Although he knew I was his
master and lost his old-time confi
dence, he occasionally showed his old
agility. I fought harder with my
trainers during the conditioning sea
son than I cm with Corbeit and I
finished the contest as fresh as when
I entered the ring.
"I have no plans for the future.
Those matters are left to, my manager
and my trainer."

Wireless Telegraphy Contest.
BERLIN The first international
congress of wireless telegraphy ad
journed, after resolving to keep its '
proceedings secret for the present.
It is learned thai the majority reach
ed an agreement regarding the prin
ciples of the control of international
communication by wireless telegraphy.
A semi-official statement issued re
garding the congress renders it prob
able that German will soon call a
more general conference.

WASHINGTON Before Secretary
Root sails for London to sit with the

resignation in the president's hands
in order that a secretary of war may
be appointed If necessary during his
It is expected, however, that the
resignation will not be acted upon un
til after congress meets. The ap
pointment of Mr. Root's successor
will depend somewhat on the length
of time he is engaged on the Alaskan
It has been known for some time
that Secretary Root intended to retire,
hut ke did not wish to leave the de
partment until the general staff was
in operation. It is understood that
the matter of his successor has been
discussed, and while not officially an
nounced It is thought the position will
be tendered to Governor Taft.
While Secretary Root is in London
he will remain in communication with
the war department and matters per
taining to the staff and other matters
will be referred to him. If the sit
tings of the Alaskan commission ex
tend beyond December 1, it is likely
the secretary's resignation will be ac
cepted at that time.
It is believed here that there will
be much delay in the consideration
of the Alaskan boundary case and
that the United States commission
ers may be detained in London sev
Secretary Root's decision to leave
public life is based largely on personal
grounds. His family does not like the
life in Washington and the secretary
also desires to return to his law prac
tice in New York.
Many questions, relative principally
to the islands and the establishment
of a government in Cuba, have been
settled during Secretarv Root's ad
ministration. The reorganization of
the army under the general staff plan
is now under way and the secretary
feels he has accomplished the work he
was called on to do when he became
secretary of war.
OYSTER BAY, N. Y. Elihu Root

resignation to take effect about Jan

present plans miscarry, by Judge Wil
liam H. Taft, now governor of the
When Mr. Roosevelt became presi
dent Mr. Root expressed his desire
to leave the cabinet within a year,
but his friendship for the president,
and his interest in pending questions
before the department, caused him
to remain for a longer period. Even
now he has not indicated just when
he may leave the cabinet, but he
and the president have discussed the
question several times and have a
mutual understanding. It is not
thought the secretary will present his
resignation before he leaves for Eng
land to take up the work of the Alas
kan boundary commission.
AUSTRIAN VIEW OF OUTBREAK.
Macedonians Held Responsible for
VIENNA. One of the explanations
of the Macedonian outbreak given
here is that Himi Pasha ordered the
arrest of every young Bulgarian sus
pect, with the result that hundreds
fled to the hills and forced the hand
of the inner revolutionary committee.
M. Rosovski, who was assassinated
on Sunday by one of the Turkish po
lice, was about 40 years of age and
was a married man with one daughter.
The official organ, Fremdenblatt,
contend that although he was the vic
tim of a Turkish bullet, the Mace
donian committee was responsible and
the Russian government will know
where to fix the blame.
King aWstws Honors.
LONDON. A large number of pro

Charles Beresford. the Rt. Hon Horace
Curzon Plunket, Sir Anthony Patrick
McDonald and a number of Irish offi
cials as knights commander.
Mrs. Nation Asks Damages.
SCRANTON. Pa. Carrie Nation's
summary conviction for selling hatch

declared illegal by Judge Newcombe
on Monday when her application for
a writ of habeas corpus came befose
him. The writ was sustained on the
ground that the magistrates record
was defective. Mrs. nation will bring
suit against the city for 150,000
damages for false arrest and impris
onment. Portland Gold Mine Sold.

fact of distinct importance was de

extraordinary session of congress next
fall is assured it has not been deter
mined definitely whether it will be
called to meet in October or in No
vember. It has been supposed that the ex
traordiaary session would convene on
Monday, November 9, but the indica
tions now .are that it will be called
for an earlier date, perhaps several
The primary purpose of the extraor
dinary session will be to enact legis
lation making operative the Cuban
reciprocity treaty, but financial Jegis
Iatioa wil lalso be pressed upon the
attention of congress soon after it con
venes. Three of the senators present at
last night's conference are members
of the senate committee on relations
with Cuba, Piatt, chairman; Aldrich
and Spooner. All of them, particular
ly Mr. Piatt, who has made a pro
found study of the situation in Cuba,
regard the necessity for the enact
ment of Cuban treaty legislation as
urgent. President Roosevelt enter
tains the same view.
It is understood that these senators
suggested calling congress together
in October, because of the urgency
0f the Cuban legislation.
It was pointed out. too, that if con
gress were convened at an early date,
the entire work of the extraordinary
and regular session could be cleared
up by the time the national conven
tions are held next year, which would
be a great convenience not only to
the president, but also to members
of both the senate and the house.
