FAN FRANCI8CO. Jury 28. The result ot
the championship battle fought here laat
night between Jame Jeffrie and Robert
Flttalmmona I prolific of widespread dis
cussion. The atory circulated to the effeot
that tha fight wag a pre-arranged affair
hat enraged the champion and fremled
ritirflmmons to the point of bursting Into
teara and fainting away. It any proof ot
a fake can be offered, eaya Fltzslmmonf,
be will forfeit hla winnings and hla last
dollar in tha world. Jeffrie 1 equally
vehement In hla denial and both are
courting a full Inveatlgatlon. Mayor
Schmlti ta weighing the alleged evidence
In the ease and Intimating that he will
end priseflghtlng her If he find the cir
cumstance bear out the charge that the
fight waa a fake. Fltaalmmona Is badly
hurt. The terrific body blowa that he re
ceived laat night have unquestionably af
fected his heart. Great welta atand out
on hla back and aide, and only today
while being rubbed down he fainted. When
Coming out of tha faint he imagined be
waa In the ring once more and hla at
tendanta had a busy time of It controlling
him. "I waa beat fairly and am badly
hurt," aald Fltistmmon to an Associated
Preta ' representative today. "The atory
that I engaged In a fake la a lie."
Flttslmmons' right thumb la dislocated
and two knuckles of hla left hand, are
badly out of place. He la bow tinder tha
cars of a physician. '
Those who claim that the outcome of the
fight waa pre-arranged bate their allega
tion principally on tb tact that FItislm
mona, after waging a masterful and telling
battle, dropped hla guard, leaving an open
ing which Jeffries took advantage of. Fits
Simmons Insists, however, that this waa
not done Intentionally. He was fighting all
the time and the very punishment he had
borne up under told on him at last. De
laney, Egan, George Biler, Lou House
man, Aleo Greggalna, Sam Thall and others
are loud In their denunclationa of the
story that the battle was a fake. They
say that the prophesying of the result and
final round In a sealed note to the mayor
waa a coincidence and that hundreds ot
anonymous letters suggesting parallel out
comes are extant.
Story Told by Fltaalasmoas.
Flttslmmons said today:
Its a shame to call it a fake. I fought
the greatest fight of my lite and here I
have been branded as a cur. There I was
winning all the time but 1 could not have
won anyway. Both hands were gone. I've
fought 328 battlea and have been defeated
twice, both times by Jeffries. That ahowa
he la the better man, doean't it T I have
had twenty-five years of hard fighting and
my hands have gone back on me. If they
had been all right Jeffries would not have
lasted six rounas, dui i ve got no excuse.
As Qod is my Judge, I did my best.
Fitiaimmons cried as he aald thla and
looked regretfully at hia crippled hands,
I know some woman had written to
Naughton that I waa to lay down In the
eighth. I was told of It yesterday -After
noon. Naughton waa to judge ty tne ngnt
whether there waa any truth tn the atory
and now he cornea out and aays It waa a
take. When I got In distress in the eighth
last night I thought of tha letter and tried
to stau on tne end, dui i couta not aa it.
I remember that aa I went down I said
or tried to say "I'm gone," but I guss it
was not any more than a gasp. He knocked
ail the wind out of my body. I did not say
"that waa a peacn. ana ir t smtiea, as
thev sav I did. that must have been a
smfle of pain. I tried to laat, but I could
not. I got what i gave many a gooa man.

the business. '
Some time during the fight Jeffries got

My handa went back on me. In tho laat
two rounds i put my giovea into mm race,
but there waa no force to the blowa. 1

that I laid down Is a damned, malicious lie.

A moment lator he said: "And thsy say
I was fairing. I call on the American pub'
He to Judge." He cred again as he said
"Why," he ssld, with childish frankness,
"I prayed to win thla tight. It was tha
first time I ever prayed to win. I lay in
that room there" he pointed to the ad
joining apartment "and prayed, 'God, give
me atrength to win thia battle, and I will
be thankful. Amen.' Do you think I waa
faking after that. If I wanted to fake I
could do It better than any on in the
world becauss I'm not afraid of a punch. I
would have gone up and taken one that
would bav stretched me out. I hsve been
offered hundreds of thousands of dollars
to throw fights, but I always fought on ths

should have been subjected to the mean

marvelou ahowii.f. If he is a faker we are

His cheek bone waa laid open and he had a

ran down hla throat, preventing hla breath

"I sm highly gratified with the progress
ot the strike from tbe boilermakers' stand

ths boilermakers require and how their
