Crowd Gathers Early.
It u late in the afternoon when the
great canopy covering the octagonal ring
in which the battle took place was Anally
stretched. Th. grounds were then cleared
by the police and stragglers ejected. Be
fore sundown long lines of anxious men
formed on Vafencla street and Julian ave
nue and awaited the opening of the two
There was no disorder until 8 o'clock,
when th. crush became heavy, but 240
burly policemen marshaled, under Chief
rYlmand handled th. crowd well. .The arc
lights over th. ring were turned on , at
7:45 o'clock, by which time the bleachers,
holding fully 6,000 people, wer. filled. The
usual night' fog did) not prevail, and. al
though th. evening-air was chilly there
was ho discomfort- "Kid" ' Egan, repre
senting th. champion, Clark Ball for Fits- i
Simmons and Alex Qrcggalna for th. 6a a
Francisco Athletio club inspected th.
promises at 1 o'clock and agreed that all
was in readiness for the fight.
Th. gates were opened at 8 o'clock and
the ticket holders began to flock In. The
"gallery", consisted of a series of tiers, the
last on. resting against the Improvised
back wall or high board fence sloping
down to the ground level. Th. occupants'
of thes. seats really wer. afforded th. best
view of all that occurred In th. ring. At
T.30 o'clock he "gallery" was full and the
doors leading to th. more favored sections
were opened and th sections Immediately
behind th. box. seats gradually filled up.
A number of well known faces were among
th. early arrivals. Oeorg. Slier occupied
a .eat In th press row at th. ringside,
close to Lou Houseman, th Chicago sport
la on. of th. boxes to th. west-of the
ring sat, Mayor Eugene Scbmlts, In com
pany with other city officials. Louis Exoll,
th. racing -man, sat near Jack Rlngllng,
th. circus man, while Ed Rlgner, Ed Kelly
and Sid Herman occupied choice seats. W.
W. Naughton, th. sporting writer, cam.
early, as did- also Lew Hawkins, th. vet
eran actor, and George Boniface, Jr., Percy
Williams of Brooklyn, Ed Duneton of Chi
cago, Jarnr. Horrlsey and Frapk McQrath
of Milwaukee and William Carpenter
Kemp. Mike Kennedy, Henry Harrison
and Julesj Markbright wer. other easterners
occupying seats at the ringside. Th. ar
rangements at th. ringside war. something
of a departure from th. usual line fol
lowed la such matters.
,'. Description ot th. Arena.
In a vacant lot at Fourteenth and Valen
cia streets a high fence waa erected. In
th. center erf the space th. ring was built,
th. floor being three feet from th. ground.
On' th. four '.Idea of th. ring wer. ar
ranged th. pres. seats, and Immediately
baok of them "th. boxes," which were
imply spaces partitioned off and
twenty-four chairs placed in each com
partment. Thes. rested on the ground,
without th least elevation. . Back ot th
boxes, cam long rows of board seats or
benches, all on th. aam. level, with con
veniently, arranged aisles.
To th. rear and backed by th. board
fence wer. placed th. gallery benches.
Th ring waa a substantially constructed
attain Built upon a good foundation of
olid timbers, th. floor M made of a
doubl. thickness ot Inch boards. Over
these there was a heavy padding ot boll?r
felt, on. Inch In thickness.
A heavy brown canvas, drawn tightly
and fastened at th edges, completed a
olid and .at. ring.
Th. light war. suspended from four
upright posts, on. at each corner ct th.
ring. Thes. uprights sloped gradually
toward th enter and a succession ot
crossbeams at the top 'held fourteen are

these, th. first three feet from th. floor
and th. second eighteen inches above it,
wer. guyed from th. tour uprights which
held th. lights snd tent. There wer. no
sharp corners. Across the eanvaa there
were placed short pad led ropes, that cut
out the sharp angle., but still left the
ring a full-sized affair.
The wind cam. sweeping through a big
fifteen-foot rent in th. canvas that cov
ered the ring. Clark Ball, who looks after
Fltxslmmons' Interests, came In, looked at
the big rent and th. resulting draught and

Sharkey Ready with Challenge.
Tom Sharkey waa early an hand with a
challenge to th. winner. From New Tork
cam. a telegram addressed .to. Tim Mc
Orath, announcing his safe arrival from
London and asking that McQrath ehy his
castor Into the ring.
At 8:15 the crowd became flense. Th.
aisle wer. congested and much confusion
In seating ticket-holders ensued. These
things wer. soon 1 straightened1 out, -however,
and when the principals of th. pre
liminary fight cam. on there was hardly
a vacant place In all the 8,300 seats pro
vided. lr . .;
At 8:20 p. m. Fits arrived in a carriage
at th. entrance' on Valencia street. He
was cheered by th. crowd that stood at
th. entrance. Fltsslmmona went lmrae
dlately to hi dressing tent at the right of
the main entrance and proceeded to dress.
He waa accompanied by his manager,
Clark Ball, Hank Griffin, the colored pu
gilist, and on. or two friends. Th. ex
champion declared h. never felt better
and waa confident be would b. returned
winner. H. was la a cheerful frame ot
mind and Inquired about th. crowd in
attendance and other matters Incident to
About ten minutes later Jeffries drove
up and got out of his carriage, followed by
bis trainer, Billy Delaney; Jo. Beck, his
sparring partner, and. Ed Egan, his secre
tary. Th. crowd set up a terrlflo roar at
th. sight of th. big fellow, to which h.
responded with a wav. ot th. hand. Pro
ceeding to his dressing tent, Jeffries im
mediately got ready. to don his ring cos
tume. H. was not In a talkative mood, but
appeared calm, and confident. He Inquired
about th. attendance and expressed satis
faction when told that th. plac. . was
Jammed. . .
Little Betting; at" Ringside.
There was so little ringside betting that
It was hardly appreciable. The odds were
about the same that hav. prevailed the
last few days, 10 to 4.
At 8:45 the only preliminary fight was
put on. It was a twenty-round affair be
tween two local middleweight. Dav. Barry
and Harry Foley.
There were a few heavily veiled women
noticeable among thos. seated lr. the boxes.
Their presence was passed over by the
crowd without demonstration of disap
proval, as Is usual In such caaes.
The good order and absence of any sort
of confusion among th crowd waa remark
able. By .'clock all th. ticket holder
wer In their allotted spaces and not a
vacant aeat was visible from the ring.
Th big audience presented an -unusual
spectacle. Banked up against th walls on
all aides ther was a solid dark masa, 1 sp
in g down to a level with those In th boxes
and other high priced seata. Scattered about
the many aisles stood numerous policemen,
but they had nothing to do, as the usher
had mastered the details of the seating
arrangements and conducted th. ticket
holders to their places without confusion.
Outside the big enclosure th wind blew a
gale, but th temperature within was qutte
comfortable. Th. light from th fourteen
aro lights suspended abov th ring gave
sufficient light for th fighter a well a
th audience. The wer th only lights
within th enclosure.
When naked Id his dressing room aa to
his weight, Fltsslmmona replied: "Oh,
about 168 or 180." He added that when he
fought Jeffries at Coney Island he. weighed
154 pounds. As FIttalmmons has not
weighed In the presence ot - any outsider
recently, his exaet weight, la problematical.
Jeffries, according to Delaney, thla after
noon weighed til pounds. Th figure might
b stated at about X1T pounds at th ring
ed. . .
Foley Knock Oat Barry.
Th preliminary fight was ndd at 8:S5
p. m. by Foley knocking out Barry la th
eleventh. Immediately th crowd becam
Impatient ' and ther waa a good deal ot
stirring about and visiting among th. well
known characters st th ringside. Th ap
pearance of about a dosen women In one
party caused a momentary flurry. They
took seata In a box directly back of the
Th. makeup of U- crowd waa unusual.
There was absolutely perfect order. Th
tench and bsr of Ban Francis'-, as well as
other professional life was well represented.
Large delegatlona from Interior California
cities. Including Los Angelea, Jeffries' home.
Bakersvllle, Stockton and Fresno occupied
large blocks of seats. The Los Angeles
party was especially large, among them be
ing many well known men from the south
ern part of th. state.
A conservative estimate of th. amount
realised from ticket sales places th. sum at
After the preliminary there occurred a
long wait, during which th. crowd called to
each other across the ring and shouted for
the big meh to com. on. It was reported
that Eddla Graney, who had been selected
as referee, wished to b. paid $500 for his
services, while the manager thought $200
Kid McFadden, the little fighter who
just returned from England, took advantage
ot the wait to get himself Introduced a
the champion featherweight. The Kid's
reception, however, wa very chilly and h
made hi exit quickly. The crowd wanted
nothing at this time but the big men.
Fltsslmmon first took the northwestern
corner, but a moment later moved to the
northeast, and finally to th. southeast
corner. Th champion took th. northwest.
Carbett Sends Challenge.
Jim Corbett sent a challenge to fight th.
winner. This wss received with applause.
A moment later the announcer stated that
Sharkey sent a challenge and there was
considerable hooting and jeering.
The men finally changed corners. Fits-
Simmons taking the northeaat and Jeffries
Fltzalmmons .wore bandages on both
hands. Jeffries wore no bandages. Fits
Simmons took his stool and sat quietly
chewing gum. He looked well, slightly
older than when he last fought In San
Francisco, but much th. same otherwise,
The announcer stated that th. forfeit
money had been returned to the principals
and the club.
Jeffries looked confident and sat In his
corner chewing gum, while th. little pre
liminary announcements wer. being made.
Fltislmmons donned hi gloves, which wer.
light maroon. Jeffries wor. very dark

but got a right on the head. Flta then
