NEW I"ORK. Oct. a.-Jinwt J. Jeffries
has come .back ,from his .European trip
ready and fit. It. Is believed, to fight Jack
Johnson for be -heavywe'lfrht championship
of th world. In the environs of Carlsbad,
Rohemla, the one-time hillermaker Is "as
serted to have trained for the flfht wlth
" out telllnn his" friends what he was doing.
. When Jeffries .walked , down the gang
plank of . the steamship Luaitania, which
arrive: today, he,' looked as If h was In
flghttng trim. -His solid hulk of frame was
without, superfluous, . flesh . and his , com
plexion was clear.' Farri Berger. his spar
ring 'partner,' nd also a host of admirers
at the dock appeared surprised at the phy
sical condition of the retired champion.. .
."NoVm ready to, fight Johnson tomor
row," said the big fellow, "and the sooner
the articles are signed the better. I ll live '
tip o , the , Bergef . agreement, but - as to
details they can take care of themselves."
"What about Johnson?" was asked.
Jeffries' brown eyes snapped- as he re
plied: "I care not about Johnson. That
negro ha made more noise' and done less
than any man I know." ,
Jeffries told' how he had brought him
self Into fighting condition, but he was a
little reticent about his weight.
. "How'rtt Tips 'Beam.
"I weighed under 220 pounds at Carls
bad," began Jeffries slowly, "and the last
time I jumped on the scales It - was In
, rrance 1 tipped the beam at 228 pounds,
but you can't get me on the scales now
"How did I get Into shape? It seems the
newspaper men always have me with a lot
of fat' on my body, I did not have much
when I went away and I have not any
To emphasize the point, Jeffrie showed
a. substantial part of his vest in his hand
to ' show how. small his ' waist Una had
"Now at Carlsbad I did three miles
every, morning," continued the former
champion, "and In the afternoon I put In
my time In the gymnasium. The Germans
thought t was crazy when they saw me
running along the highways. - -
"I did some mora work In France and
trained at a place just out of Paris. I had
to look at the address on a card evef
time I went, out .there to work. The
Trench are crasy over fighting and I saw
aoine bouts there. I also took In some of
the exhibition at .the National Sporting
club at London, but their advertised heavy
weight contests are nothing more than
middleweight affair. I have done no box
ing while abroad." ;
Operation o Ilia Nose. i
Jeffries saM he would undergo an opera
tion on his nose In a few days while In this
city. ."I would have had It done in Carls
bad, but they told me there that the doc
tors here could do lit Just a well and
again the prices they 'wanted were some
thing fearful. My nose la broken and It
Interferes with my breathing." ,
Jeffrie raid he had talked to no one
while abroad about his fight with John
son and denied he had said that he wanted
a purse of IflSo.OOO for' the mill. Mr. Jef
fries accompanied her husband on the trip
and spent ' tome time at her home In
Kaxe-Melntngcn. ' Jeffries" probably will
meet Johnson and his manager In this city
early next week, when the final' articles
for the fight will be signed.'
Last--August in Chicago" Sam Berger,' for
Jeffries, signed a preliminary agreement
with Johnson for a contest , of "any where
from twenty to 100 rounds before the club
, offering the largest purse, which was to
be divided on any terms made by Jeffrie.
The agreement provided that the , fight
should take 'place ,wlth six month after
the signing of articles.
The retired champion said he had heard
In Paris' that Sam McVeigh In his contest
with Joe Jeanette In that city had really
won the fight and It had been fixed for
Jeanette to win.. Jeffries added that Mc
Veigh Va only a right handed fighter and
would have little chance with Johnson.
"You want a left hand to fight Johnson,"
adiled Jeffrie as he walked away to Join
an admiring crowd of friends on the pier.

CHICAGO. Oct. 22. The suit seeking
annullment of the divorce, granted Grace
B. Guggenheim from William Guggenheim,
eight years ago In Chicago, came to an
abrupt close here today, when Judge
Honore Indefinitely postponed the hearing.
When Judge Dunne In 1901 granted the
divorce the testimony of Mrs. Guggenheim
showed that she was a resident of Illinois.
