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. only It waa a little to one side, but it did the business. ' Some time during the fight Jeffries got In one that caugnt me unuer tne neart. . did not feel it much then, but this morn ing about 1 o'clock it caught me good, and I thought i waa going to die. i can t raiae m v left hand now. 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 waa whipped fair and square. The atory that I laid down Is a damned, malicious lie. Bariing my hands I was never In better condition In my life. Where ie there a man or my weight ana age wno could do what I did laat nigmr 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 this. "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 squsre. I did my best. I could do no mors. Now, I'm going to rstlre.. I'm don for good." Jeffries Makes Dealal When Jeffries was seen his face was a sight. His eyes were puffed out and dla colored' and his checks cut and bruised "Do I look 'like a faker?" he facetiously rsmarked, aa he looked at himself. In a glaas. "If I was going to be a party to a taks I would not hava stopped all those blows with this faco of mine. Apybody who says that fight waa crooked la a liar, and they can break me if they can bring a bit of evidence. It there had been a fake would have been the man to hit the floor, for I waa on the long end of tha betting. Mayor Schmlts made the following atat meat In regard to the fight I saw the exhibition and ud to tha tlm the blow that aettled the fight waa struck It seemed to be a fair and creditable per formance, but at the time the blow waa delivered by Jeffries, Fltaalmmona appeared to be entirely oft hla guard. Perhana ao much stresa would not ba placed on thla fact were It not for the information given to me on the night be fore the exhibition that the contest would end, and in favor of Jeffries, in tha eighth round. I am loth to believe that the promoters of thla exhibition were In a conspiracy to dvrraua tne puouc ana oeneve that they knew nothing at all of a prearranged affair. Secretary Harrington of the San Fran claco Athletic club haa made the following financial statement or the fight: Total receipts for sale of tickets. 3SI. 8S0. Brventy per cent to contestanta, 322, 3!(. Blxty per cent of 70 per cent to Jeftrlea, Forty per cent of 70 per cent to Fits. Simmons, 18 Ki. Revenue of club from thia source, 39,5m. All money waa paid over by Sam Thall. who acted aa treasurer, at an early hour thla morning, Trainer William Delaney .thla afternoon Issued the following statement la behalf of Jeffries: The flcht Is over. Jeffries won. but n without a struggle. I am frea to admit that Ittslmmoita gave ua a aurprlae. never did like Fltxslmmons, but his action laat nlsht won me over. I admire him a a fighter and sympartilx with him that he should have been subjected to the mean accusation ot faking. Taking hla age and weight Into conalderatlon. he made a marvelou ahowii.f. If he is a faker we are willing to admit ouraelvea to be in hla clas, for It Is the kind of faking that wtna glory and chaanplonahlp. K that fight waa a fake, we were a imrtv to it. 1 nave been before the public for a uarter of a century, and have never been accused of tartlclpatlng In a dishonest i!n ceuuat, and 1 am perfectly willing to let the people Judge for themselves relative to laat nlaht s fight I like a coursgeou man or animal, and when I aee a man who tons ht aa F:iilmmon fousht last night accused of throwing hla frlenda I am com pelled to do aomethlng I have never dona oenire r'len Into print In oerense ot tne honesty of a fleht I was connected with. To defend Fltaalmmona from the accusa tion is to defend a principal In the greatest puailistlo encounter the world has ever seen. I think tha atorv la tha brlahtaat feather In IHulmmnrii wing. It haa had the ef fect of making me a warm supporter of a man whom I never liked, and I venture to say it will bave tha aame effect on thou sands of others. Even the spectators, did not know what a bed fix Jeffries was In. His cheek bone waa laid open and he had a bleeding broken nose, the blood from which ran down hla throat, preventing hla breath lhg. These were not tha thlnaa we feared most. One of hla eyea was cut between tbe eyeorow ano tne eyeiaen, ana we were afraid that tha flan of hla eve would fall and blind him. Hla other eye was "blown out" for a moment. I think Jeftrlea demon strated ne oould take aa much as he could give. People near the ring will agree with iib ill una. I I eaaerlv watched for some slrn of weakening In Fltxslmmons. It came In the fifth round. I then told Jeffrlee to keep close to him and not let him recover. Jef- rrier followed imrtructlons and landed the punch in the eighth. In conclusion, I will say that It waa tha gameat fight between the earnest men the wuiiu-nii over Known, ona tne uea i man on. Regarding the letter In the bands of Mayor Schmlts, saying that tho contest would com to an and In the eighth round, Delaney said: We received hundreds nf anonymous let ters predicting something for every round. That one should have hit tt ts a fact so trivial that l don't believe Mayor Srhmlts will heed it. I know nothing of It beyond what Is rumored. , .

A pathetic little Incident la related of the pretest I ments of death wblch haunt the emperor of Austria. Francia Joseph was preaeat a few days ago at th Inauguration of a new boepttal erected at Maner-Ocbllng. After the ceremony the old smparor, turn ing toward M. Gerenyl, director ot th s tabllahment, pronounced th following words: "Many auperb establishments ara about to be constructed now, but I shall not live to aae them completed. I feel that I shall not live much longer." Much moved by these words of bis sovereign, M. Ger enyl looked steadily at tb smperor and said: "I ahall pray tha All Powerful to preserve the daya of your majesty to the good of your people." The emperor atad bo other response than a gesture of sad ness and walked away. HIS SO FEAR OF OUTCOME sa Grand President MclTeil of Boilarma.in' Union on ths Btrika, PIECEWORK OBJECTIONABLE CONDITION Ha4 of tho Order Says the Mea Do Sot Ask I'areasoaablo Wares and atea Pay oa Other Railroads. 'This strike Is merely an incident. The Union Faclflo Is as certain to loss aa that there la a atrlke. I must have skilled mechanlca and can get them nowhere ex cept In the unions. That simply means that eventually ths company will be forced to remploy its old mea, and In order to do Ibis It will hav to accede to the terms ot these tnso." Thla Is the way In which John McNeil of Kansaa City, grand president and organiser of the Brotherhood ot Boilermakers and Iron Shipbuilders views the strike on the Union Pacific. President McNeil arrived In Omaha late last night and will be here for a day or two In connection with tha striks. "I sm highly gratified with the progress ot the strike from tbe boilermakers' stand point and the management of It and I Will assume to make no changea In the direction of affairs, My chief purposs in coming at this tlms Is to see what financial means ths boilermakers require and how their funds are being distributed," said Mr. Mc Neil. Mr. McNeil has Just come from ths Santa Fs system, where the boilermakers bave been at outs with the company for some time over a black list proposition. Hs feels that things ar betng brought to a settle ment favorable to the boilermakers and thinks ths sad is not far off. Wares f Boilermakers. "I am deeply Impressed with the Justice and fairness ot th Union Pacific boiler makers' demsnds," aald he. . "To show you aomethlng of their conditions aa compared with other boilermakers let me quote these facta and figures: On ths Illinois Central railroad tbe boilermakers get 82 cents so hour in tbe city ot Chicago; 85 cents In Nw Orleans and in all other places 81 cents: on tb . Northwestern they get 82 cents an hour In Chicago and 81 in other places; on the Missouri Pacific 82 centa; in the city of Pittaburg at the foundrlea they get 85 cents an hour and $1 a day extra for what, we call dirt work, that is, repair work; In Nsw York and Brooklyn, 87 an hour, with double tlm for overtime, treble tlm for Sunday and are allowed twenty seven hours for a night; In Buffalo they get 88 1-8 cents In contract shops and 31 on the railroads; In Birmingham contract work pays 85 cents and railroads 81; In Florida on tb Plant system and others they get 85 and we have Just settled on a scale in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Duluth, the maximum of which Is 85 cents an hour. Now, In th New England statea the price drops to 80 cents an hour, with tlms and a balf for overtime, but you must remem ber that living expenses In that section are very 16w. 'The boilermakers on tbe Union Pacific struck because ths company would not grant their demand for a scale ot 33 in Omaha, Ksnsas City and Council Bluffs, rsnglng up to - 8? In western - Wyoming. This would bring the scale up to a cent and a half or two cents and a balf more tban tbey were, getting. In comparison with wagss paid la other localities by other rallroada. and the. living expenses, of the various- place; these demands are perfectly reasonable. Coaoeralagc Piecework. ... . .... i . . "Now" as Id piecework, there la no rep resentative . railroad In . ths country that presume, to use that ayatem for new en gine work, except the Pennsylvania and Burlington, and thsy don't uae It for re pair work. 8o you aee, it is obsolete as far as repair work ia concerned. This brings sp another point to bs considered, namely, that th Union Pacific doea prac tically nothing but repair work on engines. It baa ceased making lta own engines, so that If It adopted tb . piecework system for repair work. It would atand alone in that respect. "When the boilermakers bad their fight on the Erie, wblch endured from Decern bar, 1900, until December, 1901, they were put to an sxpense ot 137,000, but ' they finally won, -and they will cheerfully ex pehd $50,000 to win the fight with the Union - Pacific If need ba. We succeeded in having piecework abolished on ths Erie, as w ' did also on ths Burlington, Cedar Rapids tt Northsrn in our little fight of three months, and w will attain the sams results on the Union Pacific. The systsm la wrong, and It must be abolished everywhere." President McNeil will meet with the boilermakers at Labor temple this after noon. Asksd If he would meet any of th Unloo'.pacinc officials while here,' he said: "Not a bit of it. I have ho time to throw away talking' 'with officials." Cnloa Paelfla Coofercaee. ' Every master mechanic and division u psrWehdent on the Union Pacific met with W. R. McKeen.

' After the confsrsncs Superintendent Mc Keen said: "All our man reported t their . respective divisions In first-class ' shapa; motlvs power, which U tbe most important thing normal and far above the average in Some instances.
